You’d Still Be Here

Bb F Gm Eb
Could you draw me, an unswerving line

Could you pledge me, more borrowed time

Would you hold me, I need you tonight
Bb F Gm Eb
Guide my weary steps | Come lift up my head
Bb F Eb
Vow me tomorrow you’ll still be here

Bb F Gm Eb
Could you tell me a story
Bb F Gm Eb
Where the journey ends on a high

Help me up this uphill climb, maybe there new life I find

Track Name: LET THERE BE LIGHT (ft Jeremy Simon & Andy Campbell)
LET THERE BE LIGHT

Chorus
C#(7) F#m A D C#(7) F#m A D
Let there be light, a morning sun for our wintery night
C#(7) F#m A D C#(7) D
Let there be light, let it shine and make things right


B(7) E(7) C#(7) F#m
We could use a little love/ for the ice in our bones
Bm C#(7) F#m E D
We could use a bit of joy for our sticks and stones
B(7) E(7) C#(7) F#m
In the corners of our souls/ cynical worlds out of control
Bm C#(7) F#m E D
I cannot deny the unwieldiness of the yoke
B(7)
It’s why I sing Chorus

E7 E(7) C#(7) F#m
Can I tell you that I have heard of a rest/ like a sun rising west
Bm C#(7) F#m E D
Can a wretched man be blessed? I will put that word to the test
B(7)
It’s why I’m singing Chorus

OOOO (over chorus)

Chorus
C#(7) F#m A D C#(7) F#m A D
Let there be love, let there be joy a new song on our lips
C#(7) F#m A D C#(7) D
Let there be love, let there be hope for the things now amiss
Track Name: MARCHAND DE REVES (ft Allan Silva)
Marchand De Reves

Am Em F C
Des mômes dans le noir le joues rouge d’espoir
Am Em F C
Le ventre plein, le coeur ouvert; on dort tranquille ce soir
Am Em F C
Même les jour de pluies sont comme une foire
Am Em F C
Y’a dans l’air un monde nouveau de paix et de gloire
Am Em F C
Lion et agneau comme d’une meme mere
Am Em F Am G F C
Moi esclave encore hier, aujourd’hui fils et fier
Hook: Am G F C

Nos peines, nos misères pour toujours effacées
Des montagnes de douleurs a jamais terrassées
La veuve et l’orphelin, le sourire retrouvé
Citoyen ou regufie, les frontieres deplacees
Le mien est aussi tien si tu veux bien prends ma main
Un royaume des cieux, un monde de rêve sans fin

Suis marchand de reves si tu veux bien prête oreilles
Une histoire de toi et moi au pays des merveilles
Si elle t’enchante peut être tu ferais pareil
Ouvrir ton coeur et âme à cet amour qui en toi s'éveille
Track Name: I LIKE THE SOUND OF THAT (ft Kim King)
I LIKE THE SOUND OF THAT

Em D
Do you remember all the giants we slayed
Bm A-G
We would watch them fall by night or day
Em D
Now and then the wind would carry my way
Bm A-G
The echoes of the tune we sang each day

It went like
G Bm-G A-G A D
You are mine and I like the sound of that

Em D
Seeing is to joy as a compass to the blind
Bm A-G
You might be in the dark but you’re light because you’re mine
Em D
O you know the song, you wrote the words back in time
Bm A-G
Now is a time to sing so bring it back to your mind

It goes like
G Bm-G A-G A D
You are mine and I like the sound of that

D C-G
Dreaming is like breathing through fire
D C-G
You can’t stop cause it’s getting harder
D C-A
A new has come and it’s pushing back, pushing back the dark

G Bm-G A-G A D
You are mine and I like the sound of that
Track Name: IN MY FATHER'S ARMS
My Father’s Arms

6m6 7#m7
The writing’s on the wall| And I have read it all
6m 4 1
The fruit never falls far from its tree
6m6 7#m7
Still I don’t need to pretend like I understand
6m 4 1 5
How I now have your love and I’m not giving up this time

1 5 6m 2(7)
Your eyes shines a light in my nights and shatters the lies
1 5 6m 2(7) 3(7) 1
It takes me where I need to be found, in my father’s arms

6m6 7#m7
Whatever goes up will surely come down
6m 4 1 5
But for now I don’t care|You are near|And I’m not letting go

1 5 6m 2(7)
Your eyes shines a light in my nights and shatters the lies
1 5 6m 2(7) 3(7) 1
It takes me where I need to be found, in my father’s arms


2m 4- 1
You show me the way I was meant to sway
4 5
And dance to the beat of my father’s heart

Mod one step up
1 5 6m 2(7)
Your eyes shines a light in my nights and shatters the lies
1 5 6m 2(7) 3(7) 1
It takes me where I need to be found, in my father’s arms
Track Name: LOVE & MERCY
Love & Mercy

I gave my best when you gave the test and
We found out sometimes the best falls short
The words we said then landed like hot coals on our skin
I took the bus, headed for the north
How I wish I could show you how
Love has rebuilt what we broke down
There is no ailment forgiveness can’t heal

I melt when she holds me in the night
Whispers “it's gonna be alright"
One, two, three, pairs of eyes teaching me that I’m
Imago dei so I try to bear his light
How I wish I could show you how
Love has rebuilt what we broke down
There is no ailment forgiveness can’t heal

O how I wish I could tell you now
I’ve been redeemed, and forgave us somehow
See, love and mercy triumph over judgment
See, love and mercy triumph over judgment
Track Name: A REST THAT NEVER ENDS (ft Ben Ko)
A Rest That Never Ends

We are children in the night/No fear on our mind
The world at least as wild/Still, we know we are fine
For things have been made right/At the appointed time
‘Tis a silent night/O, a night divine
One of black or white/But now of bread and wine
Cause even in our eyes/Love has blurred the lines

Everything anew/The old things have truly passed
The rivers of tears we cried/Have dried up as fast
The ailments we bore/Are now outcast
Death, pain, and wickedness/Are all things of past
Once we were bound/Now free at last
Even as for me and you/Our peace will forever last

I’m a nomad will you let me in
I’ll sing you stories, where good wins in the end
If they make you glad maybe you’ll begin
Running towards the rest that never ends
