Album 'Bridges to the heart' 2017

Come away                  Written by Jimmy Bakker         All rights reserved 2017

Come away. Rise above. Come to stay. Fear no love.
Come away. Find your heart. Feel the strenght. In every part.

Leave the ruins of wasted time.
Leave the fools. Free your mind.
Beat the ghost. He hides inside.
A new begin. Feel alive.

Come away. Draw the line. Drop the load. Rise and shine.
Come away. Catch the core. Flush the foal. Fear no more.

Turn the sheets. Change your sight.
Wade the stream. Find delight.
Leave the hole in the dark.
Search the light. Feel the spark.

Drown the days in endless charm.
Leave the pain. Feel no harm.
Wipe the waste from within.
Cut the chains. A new begin. 

 

 

Billy goat valley                      Written by Jimmy Bakker All rights reserved 2017

Here's the tale of a strange majestic valley.
Somewhere down the misty westcoast road.
Ride with the wind, search for the billy goat valley.
Me and my new friend Mike the magic toad.

Used to come around here, greet the fields of fog.
Used to kiss the ground here, honour ancient gods.
God hooked on that road, that old ragged road.
Took many a year to unfold.

Avalanche of plain rain, cold breeze blowing.
Haven't been in stream between the dreams of old.
Looking for a backroad into the billy goat valley.
Better leave a light on, gonna be a spooky road.

Used to come around here, unleash that heavy load.
Used to be the sidekick of Mike the magic toad.
Got hooked on that road, that old ragged road.
Took many a year to unfold.

Miles away from the gracious billy goat valley.
There's a maze of mixed emotions in my days.
Everlasting magical feeling in the back of my belly.
Thinking of Mike, still out there chasing grace.

Got hooked on that road, that old ragged road.
Got hooked on that road, that old ragged road.
Took many a year to unfold. 

 

 

Hold your head and shine   Written by Jimmy Bakker       All rights reserved 2017

Hold your head and shine, shine until you're through.
Hold your head and shine, praise the years of youth.
When days are blue, don't be so cruel.
To your belly friend, stay reckless and true.

Hold your head, shine son. Go for the dream.
Hold your head, shine son. Only the dream you need.

Hold your head and shine, trace the trail of truth.
Hold your head and shine, roll with something new.
When days are blue, don't be so rude.
To your belly friend, stay reckless and true

Hold your head, shine son. Roll with the wind.
Hold your head, shine son. Shine like a king.

Hold your head, grow slowly, go for the chemistry.
Hold your head, grow slowly, you won't be alone.
No you won't be alone inside. 

 

 

God is the goodness in you         Written by Jimmy Bakker       All rights reserved 2017

My God is the goodness in you.
Finds pride in the great things you do.
My God is the faith which will grow.
Feeds a pure humble soul.
Shines till the darkness won't show.
My God is the strong undertow.

My God needs no power of rule.
No sad nasty hypocrite fool.
No prophets or promising lies.
Stands by your side.
And shines like a beacon of truth.
My God is the goodness in you.

Count on your conscience don't fall for the nonsense.
About sin and a heavens parole.
Ride off the rail, live a life to prevail.
May God be the goodness in you.

My God needs no heaven above.
No Eden, no tale about a cross.
My God needs no war in his name.
Lives inside everything.
And shines in the eyes of a child.
My God is the goodness inside. 

 

 

Black furred magic queen        Written by Jimmy Bakker       All rights reserved 2017  

She is where the flowers grow.
Winds down slow, fabled slopes where we.
Run around like king and queen.
Perfect scene, we'll never see no more.
Knew her time would come.
Long may she run, upon those fields of green

She lives on, somewhere deep in my heart.
Yeah, she left a major legacy.
I've lowered her real slow.

Yeah she was a black furred magic queen.
I've never seen a friend like that before.
Find me a finer friend.
I bet you can't, cause nothing else can compare.
To those faithful ways, warm welcome days.
Her eyes of grace.

She'll live on, somewhere deep in my heart.
Yeah she left a major legacy.
I've lowered her real slow

 

 

Bridges to the heart         Written by Jimmy Bakker        All rights reserved 2017

Cold wind blows hard.
Feel her running through my brain.
Old magic again.

Feel the touch of majestic grip, and the feeling.
Feeds my old soul.

Been away now, crossed the bridges to the heart.
Vital new start.

Been away now.
Found my way in this old world.
The light of delight.

Wide awake now.
I've been dreaming for too long.
There's no place like home.

 

 

It's a mystery        Written by Jimmy Bakker          All rights reserved 2017

It's a mystery, gliding on the wings of life and history.
Finally understand the things I couldn't see.
All what I used to be.
Vanished within the breeze, miles and miles away.

What a remedy, climb the cloudy mountains, find a destiny.
Hear the cold wind crying gracious melodies.
Sounds like a symphony.
All what I used to be cries with it in the rain.

There's a tender breeze, rolling down the pastures underneath my feet.
Out there by the willow flows an ancient creek.
Flows to eternity.
All what it used to be flows with it in its stream.

What we could have been.
There's so much to grieve about these days you see.
Gotta leave this bag of shit, let the past just be.
All what it used to be.
Life finds a way for all the driftwood in our brain.

 

 

How could you know        Written by Jimmy Bakker         All rights reserved 2017

How could you possibly know, all the things you know.
Will you teach me some in time, whenever I'm ready.

How'm I supposed to let go of, life I once thought to be sure of.
Will you take me by the hand, whenever I'm ready.

Sweet melting memories compose my delight.
Briefly the tale of life comes shining through. 
My truly admired companion.

How could your eagerness stay.
Everything's fading away.
Is it something in your heart goes on whatever happens.

Innocence fading away, gone with the light of the day.
Now we drink the night away, keep it all steady.

Cheap talk of anarchy and stones to be thrown.
Mind there's a world of love, embrace it.
Anything to break with the hatred. 

 

 

Meet me on the other side              Written by Jimmy Bakker       All rights reserved 2017

Say grace my brothers, meet you on the other side.
Day break's a coming. Gonna be a hell of a fight.
Coming near. Haunting battle cheers.
Walk the fields, share the fear with the fellows around you.

Hey wild kid Billy, set them yankee boys on fire.
Cavalry's a coming, gonna be a hell of a ride.
Coming near, gotta face the fear.
Walk the field, shed a tear for the ones to die here.

Hey guys get ready, chase those rebels at first light.
Old ways are dying, serve the nation, face the price.
Smoke ascents, gotta run my friends.
Raise your riffle, while the fellows fall all around you. 

 

 

No hearts to tempt                             Written by Jimmy Bakker     All rights reserved 2017

What a way, flying with the wind of this heart.
May it wipe away those awful fumes of fear.
Kinda strange hiding in a dirty foxhole.
Cause the enemy inside is always near.

Speaks my tongue.
Reads my soul.
Anyone could see.
What any of it means.
There'll be no hearts to tempt here.

Well I ain't gonna be the buoyant big talk.
Cause I fail to feel affinity with faking farts.
Neither gonna be the treasure male you wished for.
Cause I wasn't meant to be your perfect part.

Speak my tongue.
Reach my soul.
Anyone could see.
What any of it means.
No other hearts to tempt here.

 

 

Don't be afraid anymore             Written by Jimmy Bakker         All rights reserved 2017

Here's to good fortune, time to get rid of.
Those empty fears we've been sold.
Glad I was destined to roll with this great heart.
Shows me that brief glimpse of hope. 

Won't be that old frantic fool.
Won't be a tool for the wolves, no more need to
Walk with this rage anymore.
Won't be afraid now, won't be afraid now.
Won't be afraid anymore. 

So good to hold you,in times when I feel soaked.
Smell of your soul features gold.
And when I'm old and they'd ask if I knew you.
Smile would come to me for sure. 

Don't look that faraway bro.
Don't be a fool, goes for sure, won't forget you.
Wind down that wide open road.
Don't be afraid now, don't be afraid now.
Don't be afraid anymore.
