New Life Story

Key: Bm

 

Lyrics

In life's winding journey
May be obstacles you can't see
I can see them everywhere
Trust me don't despair

When you feel in death's dark vale
Know that I will prevail
I will protect you
That's what I'm here to do

Where you go; I'm around you
Take my hand; I can carry you
Where you go; I'm there with you
Where you stand; always there with you
Yeah

A new life story
Look ahead to the glory
Futures here; its clear to see
You are dear to me

Where you go; I'm around you
Take my hand; I can carry you
Where you go; I'm there with you
Where you stand; always there with you
Yeah

Where you go
Take my hand
Where you go
Where you stand

Take my hand
Take my hand
Yeah, yeah, yeah

G-L-O-R-I-A, G-L-O-R-I-A,
G-L-O-R-I-A, G-L-O-R-I-A

Take my hand
I'm alive
Yeah, yeah, yeah

G-L-O-R-I-A, G-L-O-R-I-A,
G-L-O-R-I-A, G-L-O-R-I-A

Neon Lights

Key: D

 

Lyrics

You said go one way an I went the other
You let me go my friend, my torch, my lover
New toy exploded in my face
Then I realised the road to inner peace

Moved the wrong way found doors are closed
My desert highway so hot and cold
From my wasteland, saw my way back
My way back, my way back, my way back home

I know, my way, my way back home
The route I've always, always known
My step in the dark, my way is shown
Your neon runway lights lead me way back home

I reached for you in my black day light
Colours refreshing yeh, yeh so bright
Turn to me and drop, everything you said
Words so familiar spinning round in my head

By unseen chords I'm attached to you
Hear sweet music and I play the blues
When I wander away from you
You show me the way back, back home to you

I dropped everything, made that step into space
You held my hand and I see you face-to-face
Going forward re... reclaim this wasteland
So I sing this song with this band

Amore

Key: Dm

 

Lyrics

Oh amore, oh oh oh amore
Oh amore, oh oh oh amore

They can burn your house down
Take your clothes and shoes
They can take your life, you've nothing to lose
But they can't keep my love down

They can push you 'til you take no more
Kill you in a war
They can take your freedom in a prison
But they can't kill my love vision baby

You can have all Caesar's money
Give me a thorn crown
You can hate me, kill me, sleigh me baby
But you can't keep my love down

Hate gets you down
Love can be found
It's deep around
So evil confound, through love
