Kid Heart Part 1

One great
Saturday
I met you at the park

Rode on your handle bars
Until street lights turned on

Way far
Past dark
Don`t ride me home

Some day
I`ll replay
That ol` kid heart

 

When Love Comes Riding By (Hosanna)

 I thought I`d leak out a new tune on YouTube that is going to be on my upcoming second album.  I present to you When Love Comes Riding By (Hosanna).

Footage from the film Jesus of Nazareth.  The song will be available on my 2nd album due out in early 2013.

What if Love was sent to our hometown
by God himself
to lend some help

Would we scatter branches from the trees
at His feet
when we see Love on our street

Hosanna
God save us
Unless the whole city shouts
The rocks would cry out

Hosanna
in the highest
What other words could we cry?
When Love comes riding by
Hosanna

And if we see the gathering at the gates
of some saints
(and some who ain`t)
 
I wonder if we`d join in the parade
or lead the way
in a few short days
When Love is betrayed

Hosanna
God save us
Unless the whole city shouts
The rocks would cry out

Hosanna
in the highest
What other words could we cry?
When Love comes riding by
Hosanna

The crowd
Is divided
Between the hearts forever closed
And the hearts that overflow
     
Would we…
Fall to our knees?
When nothing else seems right
When Love comes riding by…

And later on
When what`s done is done
When we write a song
How could we not sing…
