Track Name: Adjoa Skinner & Mateo Messina - The Sun
Come stay with me now
for the rain comes too fast
I need you dear Sun
to be round me long last

I hear the thunderstorm
and lightning in the distance warn
- But I trust you

I can feel the energy
the winds of change are changing me

Come wrap me in warmth
and lead me in light
I need you dear Sun
To make day out of night

I hear the thunderstorm
and lightning in the distance warn
- But I trust you

I can feel the energy
the winds of change are changing me

The Sun has begun to shine on me
The Sun has begun to shine on me

Wind blowing the trees
trick the leaves... to fall down

But I can't believe
that it can.. bring me down

The Sun has begun to shine on me
The Sun has begun to shine on me
Track Name: Adjoa Skinner & Mateo Messina - I'll Go On
Maybe this time its different
though it feels the same
Maybe what I knew as love
now has another name
Maybe I was waiting
not so long ago
Looking round for something
I had never known

But I'll Go On
I'll Go On
I'll Go On Tonight

I somehow feel you've held me
a thousand times before
But I know its the first time
you've walked through that door

Even if you let you
and I let go of you
When everything is changing
One thing is true

I'll Go On
I'll Go On
I'll Go On Tonight

Seems so simple, feels so right
being with you tonight

Seems so simple, feels so right
being with you tonight

But I'll Go On
I'll Go On
I'll Go On Tonight

And I thought I'd never trust again
and I thought I'd never love again
And I thought I'd never feel again
and I thought I'd never live again
and I thought I'd never see tonight
Track Name: Still
Ringing loudly in my ears I'll tell the story
of how I learned to love and why I give you glory

God of all the universe we give you praise
throughout all time from age to age

You make me still

You were
you are
you'll always be
My one victorious

The love I find that set me free
you are my glorious

In you who is the Son of God and Son of Man
a love too deep to understand

You make me still
You make me still
Oh You make me still
You make me...

ooooo ohhhhh

When all else fades away
when all else fades away
You make me still
You make me still
Oh you make me still, still

You make me...
Track Name: Please
I saw the child in need with such a hungry mouth to feed
They said "please lend a hand, it seems like you might understand me"
But my hands are tied there's nothing left, you know I've tried to do my best
And I'm not sure if what I did, could change the life of this young kid
when he said...

when you say..
Please... Help Me!
When you say
Please Help Me.

Justice! He's a person too, just tell me God what I should do
Speak out for the innocent, the poor as well are heaven sent
You know its true

when you say..
Please... Help Me!
Yeah you say
Please Help Me.

Oh you know you know you say
Please Help Please help
When you say
Please help Please

But I ain't no Savior,
And I ain't no Saint
You're lookin for something yeah
Looking for change change change!

Ohhhhh if you just believe
that you can be the change you want to see.

Please... Help Me!
Please Help Me
Oh why don't ya
Please Please Please
Help Me!

ohhhh ooo
They're looking for something...

<spoken>
Make me instrument..
Where there is hatred let me so love
Where there is doubt, faith
where there is despair, hope
where there is darkness, light
where there is sadness, joy
Track Name: Speak
What have I done,
what I have I done
what have I done
leaving You so far behind

And why did I run
why did I run
why did I run
when I was so lost and blind

Speak

Tell me the truth
Tell me the truth
Tell me the truth
Did I miss out when I left

And how could you love
how could you love
how could you love
how could you love me til the death?

Speak to me
Cause I need to hear You speak

at the end of the day You wash me in grace
and I'm made clean again
I'm made clean

at the end of the day
You wash me in grace
and I'm made clean again
I'm made clean again

I'm made clean
oooohhhhh ooooohooo

Look what You've done
Look what You done
Look what You've done

I am new
because of You!
Speak to me
Cause I need
yeah I need to hear You
