Stephen Speaks Communion

I’ve this sinking feeling I’m before Your throne

And these songs I have been singing well they’re empty in my throat

As this plate comes by I realize I’m close to the fire but I’m still cold

And what once was juice and crackers now becomes my only hope

{this cup is not enough I must be washed in Your sweet blood

And stale bread it just won’t do tonight

Oh and in my unworthy state I kneel before Your loving grace

And wish that I could see Your face in mine}

I am reeling, realization I’m before Your throne

And deserving condemnation You make mine your own

Could this be my true communion You and I here face to face

If I’m dreaming let me dream, oh let me never ever wake

[chorus]

Stephen Speaks Inspiration

You are my inspiration in work and in play

In the verses I sing and the words that I say

You are to my life, what the sunshine is to the day

And you know that you’re welcome to stay

Every candle has a match

And every Journey has a start

Every day has a sunrise

To motivate it’s start

And like the cool waters flow

From the mountain spring

You are hope to my soul

That there’s more than I’ve seen

Stephen Speaks So Many People

Can you hear it when

When I call out your name

Would you listen or

Would you turn your head away

Cause there’s something in the water

That’s keeping this alive

There’s something in the water

Saying don’t let it die

Cause there are so many people

Wandering all alone

There are so many people

Searching for what we’ve found

Can you taste it

The delicateness

Can you smell it when

When I hold you like this

Can you feel it when

When I’m holding your hand

Do you miss it when

When you’re not where I am

Cause there’s something in the water

That’s keeping this alive

There’s something in the water

Saying don’t let it die

Cause there are so many people

Wandering all alone

There are so many people

Searching for what we’ve found

And if we ever let this go

It’s something we’re sure to miss

And I just thought I’d let you know

It doesn’t get better than this

There are so many people

Wandering all alone

There are so many people

Searching for what we’ve found

Stephen Speaks Wilderness

I come here to praise You

I come here to lift my voice

but this silence breaks my heart

I come here to feel Your grace

I come here to raise my hands

but this blackness brings me down

am I one voice crying in the wilderness

am I one man alone in a crowd

am I lifting up my eyes into nothingness

I don’t think so not right now

I come here to be filled up

I come here to just go on

but would I be here if I were the only one

Stephen Speaks Complete

If I lay my voice down at Your feet

would you still hear my song echoing

I might end this game of hide and seek

because in You

I am complete

oh in You

I am complete

all the voices i hear in my sleep

all the sins of my past echoing

to stay off my knees and on my feet

oh but they,

they can’t complete

cause in You I am complete

Ohhhhhhhhhh……..

Ohhhhhhhhhh………

Ohhhhhhhhhh……..

Ohhhhhhhh…..

I am complete [5x]

If I lay my voice down at your feet

Stephen Speaks Subside

Oh these days, I can’t feel them, they’re not here

Oh your ways, they hang like a gray cloud over me

“And oh and I’ll be fine

Oh when these clouds subside

Oh I won’t worry, I won’t mind

Oh when these clouds subside”

Oh turned away, my soul cries out more than I can give

Oh and I pray make me strong enough to get through this day

[Repeat Chorus]

Ears hear you say

I see your promises that you’ll be there

In your arms I’ll stay

Wait the storm out, start again another day

Stephen Speaks Passenger Seat

I look at her and have to smile

As we go driving for a while

Her hair blowing in the open window of my car

And as we go the traffic lights

[Another version:] And as we go I see the lights

Watch them glimmer in her eyes

In the darkness of the evening

And I’ve got all that I need

Right here in the passenger seat

Oh, and I can’t keep my eyes on the road

Knowing that she’s inches from me

We stop to get something to drink

My mind clouds and I can’t think

Scared to death to say i love her

Then a moon peeks from the clouds

Hear my heart that beats so loud

Try to tell her simply

That I’ve got all that I need

Right here in the passenger seat

Oh, and I can’t keep my eyes on the road

Knowing that she’s inches from me

Oh, and I’ve got all that I need

Right here in the passenger seat

Oh, and I can’t keep my eyes on the road

Knowing that she’s inches from me

Oh, and I know this love grow

[Another version:] Oh, and I know that this love grow

Oh, I’ve got all that I need

Right here in the passenger seat

Oh, and I can’t keep my eyes on the road

Knowing that she’s inches from me

And I’ve got all that I need

Right here in the passenger seat

Oh, and I can’t keep my eyes on the road

Knowing that she’s inches from me

And I’ve got all that I need

Right here in the passenger seat

Oh, and I can’t keep my eyes on the road

Knowing that she’s inches from me

And I’ve got all that I need

Right here in the passenger seat

Stephen Speaks What’ll She Look Like

what’ll she look like when she opens her eyes

and sees what she wnats to see

instead of this cold mirror’s lies

and all the pieces complete

she says with a sign

“I think I’m ready…”

what’ll she sound like when she opens her mouth

and all the phrases sound right

as they fall out

and she says “yes” and she’s not

scared of the sound

she says she’s ready

will she be soft will she be strong

will she be ready to be wrong

will she move too fast or wait too long

will she look me in the eyes

what’ll it feel like when she opesn her heart

and finds that there just might be

a small missing part

and whether with or without me

she has to start getting ready

what’ll she look like when she opens here eyes

will she see just what I see

will it be a surprise

to see that she hasn’t changed,

her eyes are just a little wider now

and she’s getting ready

Stephen Speaks Unraveled

I knew it’d be like this someday.

It turns out someday’s not so far away.

Now I’m falling down,

I know you’d catch me but you’re not around

[Chorus:]

So when it’s all unraveled at the end of my road

Would you, burn it on the side?

And it won’t be easy but I’ll do my best

When it’s time to say goodbye

And all the things will live

Living me with only memories

You are too good to be true, but then…

I could have sworn that it was meant to be

[Repeat Chorus]

And I’m all unraveled at the end of my road but I’m…

Hangin’ on for life..

And it isn’t easy but I’m standing here

Til you… make me say to you

Make me say to…

Make me say…

Goodbye..

Stephen Speaks Disappear

In your eyes a moment ago

I saw fire and rain

Surely after you smiled at me

It all melted to pain

You cannot be true to me

Til you’re true to yourself

When you say you have to leave

and put your heart on a shelf

What taught you that you have to run?

What inspires this fear?

When you start to feel something real

You always disappear

You have to disappear

Want to get inside of you

find what makes you tick

You can see i’m getting thin

And your walls are too thick

I’ve given my heart and mind

What more can I do?

You cash out anytime

See I’m getting through

What taught you that you have to run?

What inspires this fear?

When you start to feel something real

You always disappear

You have to disappear

I know you have dreams

Don’t hold them inside

Take hold of your heart

And open it wide

I know you have fears

just push them aside

You’ll never feel love

You’ve never tried

I know you have dreams

Don’t hold them inside

Take hold of your heart

And open it wide

I know you have fears

just push them aside

You’ll never feel love

You’ve never tried

I know you have dreams [x2]

don’t hold them inside

What taught you that you have to run?

What inspires this fear?

When i show you something real

Please don’t disappear

Don’t disappear
