Lyrics

Lord We Come Before Your Throne
Lord We Worship You Alone
God Of Mercy God Of Grace
Let Your Spirit Fill This Place

You Are Here
And We Bow Before The Lamb Of Glory
You Are Here
Let Us Kneel Before The King Of Kings

You Are Here
For Where Two Or More Are Gathered
You Are Here O Lord You Are Here

Lord We Come Before Your Throne
(Lord We Come To You)
Lord We Worship You Alone
(You Are Holy)
God Of Mercy God Of Grace
(God Of Mercy)
Let Your Spirit Fill This Place
(As We Seek Your Face)

You Are Here

By Your Spirit Not By Might

You Are Here
And We Bow Before The Lamb Of Glory
(You Are Here)
You Are Here

Open Up Your Heart To Touch To See

But Giving It To You Is The Hardest Part

You Wake To A World
Of Lies And Truth
Still Seeking Paradise
See The Walls Closing In
And You Options Ever Fewer

Take Another Step Forward
And You Fall Behind
Cut Your Losses Again
For The Very Last Time
You’re Keeping A Score
And You Seem To Still Be Losing

But After The Rain Falls
And Hits The Ground
Will You Be Left To Watch
The World-Go-Round
Looking For Someone
With Something To Say
Wanting The Truth And The Way

Higher And Higher
We Reach For The Fire
For A Piece Of The Puzzle
We Seek And Desire

And Then Silence Takes Over
And You Lose Control
For One Perfect Moment
You Start To Let Go
And Still You Are Screaming
Take Me Higher

For Now Is The Moment
For You To Decide
There’s No Where To Run To
There’s No Where To Hide

For Here Is The Moment
It’s All Up To You
So What Is It You’re Gonna Do

Higher And Higher
We Reach For The Fire
For A Piece Of The Puzzle
We Seek And Desire
Higher And Higher
We Reach For The Fire

Solo

Wondering Eyes That Seem Not To Care
A Waiting For Someone
To Show You They’ll Share

All The Dreams
That’s In Their World They Will Bring
Every Treasure Left Here
To Show You The Way

Solo

Take Me Higher
Oh Won’t You Take Me
Just A Little Bit Higher Now
Won’t You Take Me
Just A Little Bit Higher Now Oh Yeah

Watch This Big World Tumbling Down
One Will Stand One Will Fall To The Ground

Long Long Ago There Was A Sailor Man
Who Sailed Across The Ocean Blue

Set Forth To Travel Through The mysteries
That No One Ever Dared To Do

A Lost Forgotten Traviler
A Story Of His Life And Of His legacy

Long Long Time Ago Before The Wars Began
There Used To Be A Sailor He Was Sailing Sam
Traveling The Ocean Blue He Loved To Sail The Sea
And Sailing Sam Was Always Where He Wanted To Be
Wanted To Be

Long Long Ago
There Was A Sailor Man
Who Sailed Across The Ocean Blue Woh

Images Surrounding You
Forever Hold A Map Of The Night

And While You Teach Them Wipe Out
The Pain That They Shall Over Come In Time

Feel The Sun In The Morning Time
Hear The Angels Sing With Joy
Emotions Find A Pathway To The Sky

All We Hear Is A Symphony And A Mighty Cry Of Joy
Water Grand Explosions Lead To Light
Lead To Light

Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh

Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh

One Small Light In The Dark
Speaking So Soft To Me
I Was Found Walking In A Grey Cloud
With Only Eyes To See

Words You Spoke To Me
When I Was Younger
Talking About The One Who Came
To Wash Away The Pain After The Rain
After The Rain

There’s A Man Standing On A Playground
Who Thinks He Found His Life
There A Clock Ticks Away Your Life Line
With No More Days To Buy

No More Words To Speak When Your A Cold Man
No It Isn’t Written In The Stars Or In Your Hand
Cause We’re Going Back Now
To The Words That They Had Told You
When They Told You Not To Worry
Because He Waited Just For You
After The Rain

After The Rain
He Was The One Who Came
To Wash Away The Pain
After The Rain
With No More Tears To Cry Ever Again
After The Rain
He Was The One Who Came
To Wash Away The Pain
No No No

Now I Come Closer To The Answer
I Need To Find You Now
Letting Go Of All Of My Distraction
If Only You Would Show Me How

After The Rain
You Were The One Who Came
To Wash Away The Pain
After The Rain
With No More Tears To Cry Ever Again

You Got A One Way Ticket To Paradise
But You Can Never Find The Time
You Better Take The Time To Listen
Before You Lose Your Mind

Cause There’s Another Love In Front Of Me
And There’s Another Lover Inside Of Me
And If I Had The Chance
I’d Do It All Again

I’m Gonna Sing It To You
I’m Gonna Sing It To You
Oh I’ll Sing It To You Love
Forever Again
And Ever again
And Ever again

After The Rain
Oh Ooo I’m Singing It To You Forever Again
After The Rain
Awe You Were The One
Who Came To Wash Away The pain
After The Rain
You Were The One Who Came
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah

The Album

If You Believe was the first solo project I undertook in 1997. The album combines previously recorded yet unreleased music from bands and solo projects. My vision was to take several previously unfinished songs, give them life, and produce them professionally.

The first song written specifically for the album was the title track, “If You Believe,” a 7/8 rocker inspired by my all-time favorite band, Marillion. It is in the style of their song, “Hooks In You,” from their 1989 album Seasons End.

“If You Believe” would also be a vehicle to showcase my skills as an instrumental composer. Songs such as “Winter in the Sky” and “Jessica’s Song” hopefully highlight my ability and passion for writing elaborate orchestrations and melodies for many instruments.

I would also share my spiritual side with several original praise and worship songs. These included “You Are Here,” “Light of the World,” and the song “Ancient of Days.” These songs would be my first contributions to the contemporary Christian genre.

The songs I was most eager to complete for this project were the ones that had never seen the inside of a studio before, such as the Fable composition “Sailing Sam.” This song and several others had waited years to get into a recording studio. It wasn’t until I finally felt I had acquired some skill and artistic ability to make that happen that I decided to do the work.

The remaining tracks were songs co-written by other bands and made up of unfinished albums by the groups such as Fair Exchange and Crimson Fable. These songs include “After The Rain,” “When the Angels Come,” “Higher and Higher,” and “Find Your Way.” These songs demonstrate the potential both Fair Exchange and Crimson Fable have to offer.
