Just two brothers with visions of flight
They were certain to grace
The heavens that awaited
Orville and Wilbur had figured it right
At their moment of fate
Their destiny had come to this time and place

Far beyond anyone's expectations
They lifted into the skies of blue
As they all watched in anticipation
The crowd must have longed for
Their own rendezvous

Give me my wings
I'm ready to fly today
Ready to wave my worries goodbye
Give me my wings
I'm ready to ride away
Ready to leave my troubles behind
What's over my head will soon be under my feet
Give me my wings

Those who patiently wait are made new
Through the turbulent times
Somehow they survive it
They will walk and not faint, this it true
Through the currents of life
Even though it throws them from side to side

So, I'm waiting on You through the weather
We'll take a trip where the eagles dare
And we're gonna go through it together
'Cause I've got Your promise
You'll carry me there

Give me my wings
I'm ready to fly today
Ready to wave my worries goodbye
Give me my wings
I'm ready to ride away
Ready to leave my troubles behind
What's over my head will soon be under my feet
Give me my wings

I can sail through the trials of life
Lord, You're my captain
And you're always there to guide me
I've fixed my compass
And I've set my sights on the ride

Give me my wings
Give me my wings

Give me my wings, yeah
Ready to fly
Ready to wave my worries goodbye
Give me my wings
Ready to wave my worries goodbye
Give me my wings

. . .


Everybody wants to know for certain
That love will never leave them alone
And there are those who spend a lifetime searchin'
For a Juliet or Romeo
Well, I've discovered that one way or another
Love will find a way to your heart
It's never to far away or never to far apart

CHORUS
There's no mountain too high
There's no ocean too wide
It'll reach beyond the limits
That's the nature of Love
Through the measure of time
It'll go through the fire
It is endless that's the nature
That's the nature of Love

Some will say that it's to old fashioned
That love is just a thing of the past
But I believe that only true compassion remains
When nothing else will last
We can't deny when the Lord was crucified
He displayed the very meaning of love
You're never out of His reach
You're never to out of touch

REPEAT CHORUS

. . .


The signs are obvious, they are everywhere
All that we hear about is the gloom and despair
Too many would-be prophets saying
"It's the end of it all"
'Cause mother earth can't take much more
The hammer's gonna fall

So nature has its needs, that's a lesson learned
But it appears to me there are greater concerns
'Cause we can save the planet
Thinkin' we will somehow survive
But father time is calling us
To save somebody's life

Chorus:
So I won't bend and I won't break
I won't water down my faith
I won't compromise in a world of desperation
What has been I cannot change
But for tomorrow and today
I must be a light for future generations

If we could find a way to preserve our faith
So those who follow us
See the price that was paid
Then maybe when they question
What it's gonna take to survive
They'll find the strength to carry on
In what we leave behind

So I won't bend and I won't break
I won't water down my faith
I won't compromise in a world of desperation
What has been I cannot change
But for tomorrow and today
I must be a light for future generations

Lookin' in the eyes of the children
Knowing that tomorrow is at stake
When the choice is up to them
Will they have the strength to say

We won't bend and we won't break
we won't water down our faith
We won't compromise in a world of desperation
What has been we cannot change
But for tomorrow and today
We must be a light for future generations

We won't bend and we won't break
we won't water down our faith
We won't compromise in a world of desperation
What has been we cannot change
But for tomorrow and today
We must be a light for future generations

. . .


How long have you been
Waiting on a little sun to shine
To take away the night
Hold on for you are never alone
Through the darkest skies
There is a guiding light

For our God is a refuge
Where the weary can run and hide
in times of trouble
He'll be the calm in the midst of the storm
'Till it passes by
Oh, you need to know

CHORUS
There's a shelter in the rain
There's a hope for your tomorrow
There's a cover through the pain
When you're underneath the weather
Jesus is the shelter in the rain

Sometimes when hope is hard to find
We've got to walk by faith
Until we see the way
Hold tight for we are promised in time
Those who patiently wait
Will never wait in vain

For we know God is faithful
He's a fortress to run into
In times of trouble
He'll cover us with the wings of his love
'Till we make it through
Oh, we got to know

REPEAT CHORUS

So tell me why
Why could you ever run away
From the cover out into the storm
Just know in time
The rain's gonna bring a brighter day
And the clouds will be gone
But while you wait on the Lord

. . .


Sometimes I wonder how it would be
If things would have stayed just the same
It's certain that things would be different of course
But we both know it's better this way
'Cause there's no denying it's so clear to me
That life gives us choices to make
And somehow some things
Are just destined to be
But I'm certain it's not a mistake

CHORUS
Just between You and me,
Both of us know there is something
That's changed in my heart
For what's come between You and me
Has caused us to grow so much closer
not further apart
Oh, God it's amazingly clear I can see
Something's come between us
Between You and me

As I remember, I can't help but see
You knew what was best from the start
'Cause there have been times
I could not see Your plan
But I've held on trusting Your heart

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
In the midst of those times
When the world gets so crazy
And life is too much for me to bare
I can rest in the knowing
That You're all I need to get by
Just as close as a prayer

. . .


I can dream about heaven constantly
Both day and night
I can let my mind drift away to a better place
A better time
Though there's nothing wrong with thinking about
Forever by and by
All the while millions are still searching for a light

Maybe it is time we take a look
At here and now
Maybe we can change the destiny
Of a world that's crying out
For the truth we take for granted
Is too often left unsaid
We can get so heaven minded
That sometimes we forget

CHORUS
That we're living in a real world
With real hurt and real pain
And all we really need is the real thing
When we look beyond our circumstance
And face reality
We'll realize that all we really need
Is just to see
Jesus in a real world

There are days when I look around
And I feel like hope is gone
There are times my heart is torn between
Who is right and what is wrong
There are causes I believe in
There are things I'll never change
But I'm finding all that matters
Is there's just one truth
One truth that remains

'Cause we're living... (CHORUS)

. . .


The wheels of life are turning
I feel I'm rolling down this track
And I know down deep inside my heart
I can't look back

And though it's hard discerning
All of the fiction from the fact
You have led me to this truth
And we have made a pact

And as we go through highs and lows
And all that's in between
It's good to know we're not alone on this
big scream machine

CHORUS
This roller coaster ride of life
Lifts you up and lets you down
This roller coaster ride of life
Spins you round and round and round
Heaven knows wherever you go
I will be right by your side
On this roller coaster
Roller coaster ride of life
Roller coaster ride of life

So, when I hear you calling
'Cause you have hit your all time low
I will hold you to my side
And I won't let you go

And when it seems you're falling
'Cause life has got you on a roll
I will take the wheel and hit the brakes
We'll take it slow

And as you go through highs and lows
And all that's in between
The Lord alone is in control
Of this big scream machine

REPEAT CHORUS

. . .


God only knows how he must have felt
Out on the mountain where Abraham knelt
Though deep in his heart I'm sure it hurt to obey
Still he offered his son as if to say

CHORUS
I'm Willing to live
Willing to die
Willing to make any sacrifice
I'm willing to go
Willing to stay
Lord, there's no price too high for me to pay
Any struggle that might come my way
I'm willing to go through
Just as long as my heart
As long as my heart knows it's you.

How many times have you called for me
When my heart was willing but I was so weak
What I would give if I could only believe
That when I'm tested by fire I'll always be

REPEAT CHORUS

. . .


I make it my firm policy
To make my bed with honesty
So, I don't sleep with shadows in the room
The truth is I've been holdin' back
The way I feel about the fact
That I'm not as close as I want to be with You

There's still so much more of You I long to know
and I won't be content until I do

CHORUS
'Cause what do I know
If I don't really know You
Though I may blow the minds of men
How can I say that I know
Anything of love
Unless I find it in Your hands

I'm not playing playground games
I'm not reading Dick and Jane
And I don't need a pass to walk the halls
I've graduated in my faith
And still I've barely pushed the gate
That opens to the one true know-it-all

I could win a nobel prize or rule the world
But, I would die a genius with no clue

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
Life is such a cruel deception
Without You to lead my quest
I'd fail the test

. . .


When the road gets the best of me
My mind recalls a picture
Of a place that I call home

You are there in my memory
A scene that's so familiar
That it chills me to the bone

But I'll stay out here where I belong
For the call is telling me to carry on
And while I'm away I can dream
And suddenly You're there

CHORUS
Love finds you, love brings you to me
And once again we walk together
Love finds you, love brings you to me
And binds the hands of time forever
We may be worlds apart
But you are never too far
From where I need you to be
Love finds you, love brings you to me

It was not what we planned to be
We all would change the ending
If the choice was ours to make

For you left us so suddenly
But it's only the beginning
For eternity awaits

And I'll never forget you my friend
For the brotherhood between us has no end
But while you're away I can dream
And suddenly you're there

REPEAT CHORUS

Through the fire of the journey
Through the good and through the bad
You are not alone
And through each and every turn of life
Through the seasons of your path
I want you to know where ever you go

REPEAT CHORUS
