LYRICS FROM
NOVELLA ONE BIG SKY 
1991


DO WE JUST SURRENDER

Soon maybe quicker then soon
There will come a day
Where the dawn is like night
And the heat of the Sun
Will make us wish it would go away

Think real think hard
Do we just surrender
To the conscience of the few
Think hope think about forever
Do we just surrender
To a world we never knew

OOOh for the love of the big dollar
The sea rages
As it gives up it's precious treasure
And the sky has opened wide
Leaving us no places to hide

Think real think hard
Do we just surrender
To the conscience of the few
Think hope think about forever
Do we just surrender
To a world we never knew


RUNNING HOME

Hearing inside
Your heart whispers the truth
He's playing your song
And it's playing for you

I've been in love
And I've been around
I've seen hearts die
Without making a sound

Towing the line 
Nearing the end
You reach out reach out
Reach out again

Aren't we all winners
In this crowded old world
And once in a while
You go running home

Aren't we all singers
Always singing the blues
And once in a while
You go running home

Always our light
He's always leading us home
So why do we hide
From the love He has shown

I've been in love
And I've been around
I've seen hearts die
Without making a sound

Towing the line 
Nearing the end
You reach out reach out
Reach out again

Chorus repeat


FIRE EYES

Dust from the desert road
Settles on the plain
It looks just the same
As a road traveled before

And there in the distance
Sits a man I've seen before
He's just to hard to ignore
And He slowly speaks to me

OOOh I can feel the warmth
When I look inside deep inside
your fire eyes
OOOh I can see the rage
Through a burning love
deep inside your fire eyes

Show me your world 
Hidden within yourself
Knowledge on the shelf
Can't compare to what you know

Give me your peaces
Ask me what you will
I'm eager to tell
Of all you've done for me

He said scream
Then reach out and touch the sky
Where all things try
And dreams melt into one

He said cry
When you face the night alone
And find that black stone
Which slowly replaced your heart

Chorus

I NEED YOU

Can you see the reign
Kings of the king in another age
Can you hear the voice
Voice of the spirit call
Will you hear the noise
As thousands in a praise fall

See the wide road calling 
out for me Oh no 
Walk the narrow road
I can hear you when you try,
hear you cry

I need you Oh God
you're everything to me
I need you deep inside
give me hope take my pride
I need you love from above
God I need you
I need you deep inside
give me hope always my guide

If you speak the word of truth
Power and glory like you never knew
Clean you'll be free inside
Peace no need to run and hide

Per chorus
chorus repeat



WHISPERS IN THE NIGHT

Color so warm
As the summer sun goes down
You are there you are there

Walls broken down
My soul cries out for you
You're aware you're aware

Whispers in the night
Calling my name I feel the light
On me now I hear you
Whispers in the night

Pieces of this dream
Don't fit as they would seem
But you care I know you care

And through it all
I know your love
Is a constant stream
Seeking places in our hearts

Whispers in the night
Calling my name I feel the light
On me now I hear you
Whispers in the night

When I don't hear a sound
I cry hysterically
I loosen from my ground
And think pathetically
Because the voice I long 
to hear is yours

Colors so warm
As the summer sun invades
You are there you are there

Words you spoke in the night
Sustain me through the day
You are there you are there

Whispers in the night
Whispers in the night



GIVE ME LOVE

I fight the war in a dark hole
Lonely place dying souls
The war is hate anger is king
Watch me win hear freedom ring

So many ways to reach into a love
That in so many ways I fought 
to stay above

OOOh It won't ever fade away
OOOh will I live to see the day
when you 

Give me love Give me love
Give me love Give me love

I've known the truth and the way
The sky is white this world is gray
One thing's clear there's no mistake
Love is free It's yours to take

So many ways to reach into a love
That in so many ways I fought 
to stay above

OOOh It won't ever fade away
OOOh will I live to see the day
when you

Give me love Give me love
Give me love Give me love 


LAY IT ON ME

I met this lonely stranger
Asked him where are you going?
He said I'm looking for some danger
Well you can find it anywhere

But who will come and 
save you from yourself
When you've had all
that you can take
I know someone who paid
the price
He said lay it on me

Lay it on me
Lay it on me
When your heart is
hanging low
Lay it on me

Come in and let me
share this thing
This thing I call happiness
It only happens from within
And once you've had it all
make sense

Cause who will come and save
us from ourselves
When we've had all
that you can take
I know someone who paid
the price
He said lay it on me

Chorus Repeat


WHO ARE WE TO SAY

We've talked many times
before about what is in
my heart
But you decided to walk
out the door and
live life as you are

One day, One way
We will all see
That day His way
We will all be

I see it spinning around
and round inside 
your head
I feel it spinning around
and round and round
Waiting to believe
in what I said

Who, who are we to say
Where, where would 
we be today

Live life and loose
the chain
That has it hold on you
Give it all give it all
that you've got
What else can you do

Some day some way
We will finally see
That day His way
We will finally be.

Per chorus

Chorus



SWEET RISING SUN

Sweet rising sun
There's a distant rain
There's a healing hand
And it wipes the shame

There's a constant love
And it fills complete
Wit a heart full and yearning
I could only believe

Chorus

I live for the day
When I feel the red fire
of love
I live for the reign
Deep in my heart

I live for the truth
That I hear within 
myself
I'd die for the love
Deep in my heart

Sweet rising sun 
There's a hole in our hearts
Here's a fragile soul
That's been torn apart

But the sweet breathe
of air
From a Savior true
Leaves me wanting nothing
Leaves me only wanting you

Chorus Repeat


BIG SKY

Paint a picture
of the western shore
This faith within me
Like the sea you
just can't ignore

The wind surrounds me
Like the spirit from above
It will toss and turn me
And shape me into a 
tower of love

Oh men of power who
rocks the boulevard
Work until the hour
where life's end
means a new reward

Paint a picture
Of the eastern skyline
The sun, the moon, and the stars
Which gave us all the sign 

Oh men of power who
rocks the boulevard
Work until the hour
where life's end
means a new reward

One big sky, one big hope
Two forgotten memories
Own dark question
one bright truth
His answer's for you and me.
