    "Letters from War" by Mark Schultz

    She walked to the mailbox
    On that bright summers day
    Found a letter from her son
    In a war far away

    He spoke of the weather
    And good friends that he'd made
    Said I'd been thinking 'bout dad
    And the life that he had
    Thats why I'm here today
    And that the end he said
    You are what I'm fighting for
    It was the first of the letters from war

    She started writing
    You're good and you're brave
    What a father that you'll be someday
    make it home
    make it safe

    She wrote every night as she prayed

    Late in December
    A day she'll not forget
    Oh her tears stained the paper
    With every word that she read

    It said "I was up on a hill
    I was out there alone
    When the shots all rang out
    And bombs were exploding
    And thats when I saw him
    He came back for me
    And though he was captured
    A man set me free
    And that man was your son
    He asked me to write to you
    I told him i would, oh I swore"
    It was the last of the letters from war

    And she prayed he was living
    Kept on believing
    And wrote every night just to say

    You are good
    And you're brave
    what a father that you'll be someday
    Make it home
    Make it safe
    Still she kept writing each day

    Then two years later
    Autumn leaves all around
    A car pulled in the driveway
    And she fell to the ground
    And out stepped a captain
    Where her boy used to stand

    He said "mom I'm following orders
    From all of your letters
    And I've come home again",
    He ran into hold her
    And dropped all his bags on the floor
    Holding all of her letters from war

    Bring him home
    Bring him home
    Bring him home

    Hold Me-Jamie Grace. Best.Song.Ever.
    (I love, I love, I love, I love the way You hold me)
    (I love, I love, I love, I love the way You hold me)
    (I love, I love, I love, I love the way You hold me)
    (I love, I love, I love, I love the way You, the way Ya, the way Ya)

    VERSE 1:
    I've had a long day
    I just wanna relax
    Don't have time for my friends,
    No time to chit-chat
    Problems at my job,
    Wonderin' what to do
    I know I should be working
    But I'm thinking of You and
    Just when I feel this crazy world is gonna bring me down
    That's when Your smile comes around

    CHORUS:
    Oo, I love the way You hold me,
    By my side You'll always be
    You take each and everyday,
    Make it special in some way
    I love the way You hold me
    In Your arms I'll always be
    You take each and everyday,
    Make it special in some way
    I love You more than the words in my brain can express
    I can't imagine even loving You less
    Lord, I love the way You hold me

    (I love, I love, I love, I love the way You hold me)
    Whoa oh oh oh oh
    Oh Whoa I love the way You hold me
    (I love, I love, I love, I love the way You hold me)
    Whoa oh oh oh oh whoa
    (I love, I love, I love, I love the way Ya)


    Well Ya, took my day
    And You flipped it around
    Calmed the tidal wave
    And put my feet on the ground
    Forever in my heart,
    Always on my mind
    It's crazy how I think about You all of the time
    And just when I think I'm bout to figure You out
    You make me wanna sing and shout

    CHORUS:
    I love the way You hold me,
    By my side You'll always be
    You take each and everyday, Make it special in some way
    I love the way You hold me,
    In Your arms I'll always be
    You take each and everyday,
    Make it special in some way
    I love You more than the words in my brain can express
    I can't imagine even loving You less
    Lord, I love the way You hold me
    (I love, I love, I love, I love the way You hold me)
    Whoa oh oh whoa
    (I love, I love, I love, I love the way You hold me)
    Oh whoa, I love the way You hold me
    (I love, I love, I love, I love the way You hold me)
    Whoa oh oh whoa oh
    (I love, I love, I love, I love the way Ya)

    BRIDGE:
    I'm so grateful and thankful for all You've done
    Wish I could tell You in a short story or poem
    But, all I have is my voice and this guitar
    And You have my heart

    CHORUS:
    Oo, I love the way You hold me, by my side You'll always be
    You take each and everyday, make it special in some way
    Oh, I love the way You hold me, in Your arms I'll always be
    You take each and everyday everyday everyday...

    I love the way You hold me, by my side You'll always be
    You make each and everyday, oh so special
    Oh, I love the way You hold me, in Your arms I'll always be
    You take each and everyday, make it special in some way
    I love You more than the words in my brain can express
    I can't imagine even loving You less
    Lord, I love the way You hold me
    (I love, I love, I love, I love the way you hold me)
    Whoa oh oh oh Oh
    (I love, I love, I love, I love the way you hold me)
    Oh whoa, I love the way You hold me
    (I love, I love, I love, I love the way you hold me)
    Whoa oh oh oh oh whoa
    Oh, I love
    (I love, I love, I love, I love the way you)
    whoa whoa oh
    (I love, I love, I love, I love the way you hold me)
    whoa whoa oh
    (I love, I love, I love, I love the way You hold me)
    whoa whoa oh
    (hold me, hold me...)

    [​IMG] This is by Tom Felton (His amazing accent makes it sound so cool [​IMG]) ~

    And I was woken by the thought in my head
    "Time to see the world
    And get up out of this bed."
    With feet to walk with and a little time to kill
    I grab my guitar so I can go and chill
    At Box Hill, Cardish, I will, won't stop till I fall asleep
    I'll take my time and relax in the sun
    Because I heard time flies when you're havin' fun.

    And I've no idea where that day gone when
    Yet I know that it's time well spent
    And I've no idea where that day gone when
    Yet I know that it's time well spent
    Yeah...

    And I remember sharing lips with her
    The coming weeks were to be a blur
    'Cause time with her is like no other
    She can make a winter's day feel like the summer
    And it's oh so nice to have her alone
    'Cause you know I made her leave her mobile phone at home
    The clocks ticking but I don't mind
    Because there's no one else I'd rather share my time

    And I've no idea where those weeks gone when
    Yet I know that it's time well spent
    And I've no idea where those weeks gone when
    Yet I know that it's time well spent
    So I'll sing…
    Mmm.

    Reminded of the time in 1999
    I started a brand new school
    Behaved, I'd be lying
    'cause you'll be finding me 'round the back of that sport school
    Takin' teachers through the bends with a little set of friends
    Yeah, we're about as focused as a broken camera lens.
    My first fight, my first fall for a girl.
    You know, I wouldn't swap those two years for the world.

    And I've no idea where those years gone when
    Yet I know that it's time well spent
    And I've no idea where those years gone when
    Yet I know that it's time well spent
    So I sing…
    Mmm.

    Strong Enough- Matthew West
    (Can we put links?) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BBJwA0I8P-4

    You
    must
    You must think I'm strong
    To give me what I'm going through

    Well, forgive me
    Forgive me if I'm wrong
    But this looks like more than I can do
    On my own

    I know I'm not strong enough to be
    everything that I'm supposed to be
    I give up
    I'm not stong enough
    Hands of mercy won't you cover me
    Lord right now I'm asking you to be
    Strong enough
    Strong enough
    For the both of us

    Well, maybe
    Maybe that's the point
    To reach the point of giving up

    Cause when I'm finally
    Finally at rock bottom
    Well, that's when I start looking up
    And reaching out

    I know I'm not strong enough to be
    Everything that I'm supposed to be
    I give up
    I'm not stong enough
    Hands of mercy won't you cover me
    Lord right now I'm asking you to be
    Strong enough


    Strong enough

    Cause I'm broken
    Down to nothing
    But I'm still holding on to the one thing
    You are God
    and you are strong
    When I am weak

    I can do all things
    Through Christ who gives me strength
    And I don't have to be
    Strong enough
    Strong enough

    I can do all things
    Through Christ who gives me strength
    And I don't have to be
    Strong enough
    Strong enough

    Oh, yeah

    I know I'm not strong enough to be
    Everything that I'm supposed to be
    I give up
    I'm not stong enough
    Hands of mercy won't you cover me
    Lord right now I'm asking you to be
    Strong enough
    Strong enough
    Strong enough

    "Gone" by tobyMac

    I told the girl that you should treat her like a lady and
    She told me all the things you did and it was shady, man
    She said that what you say and what you do are different things
    While you were telling me that you were checking out them blingy rings

    She said she's had enough
    Well, it sounds to me like you're straight out of luck
    And she said she's all through
    And life's not blowin' her kisses thanks to you

    I wanna know, wanna know what you were thinkin'
    I can't imagine why it didn't even sink in
    They say you never know what you got till it's gone
    (Never know what you got till it's gone)
    I wanna know, wanna know what you were thinkin'
    I can't imagine why it didn't even sink in
    They say you never know what you got till it's gone
    (Never know what you got till it's gone)

    She said she's had enough
    So, it sounds to me like your still out of love
    And she said you weren't true
    And life's not blowin' her kisses thanks to you

    She said it's gonna be alright
    Cause God made a way through the pain and he opened her eyes
    And she said you came crawling back
    But after what you did to her she wouldn't have any of that

    Hold On - By TobyMac:)


    Wake up to the morning light
    wipe away the lonely nights
    let a brand new day wash over you,
    Wanna see you smile again
    show some love to your crazy friends
    wipe your tears away
    those days are through

    If you move just a little bit closer you can put your head on my shoulder
    Yeah, yeah

    [Chorus:]
    So baby hold on
    just another day or two
    I can see the clouds are
    moving faster now
    and the sun is breaking through
    If you can hold on, to the one that's holding you
    there is nothing that can
    stop this crazy love
    from breaking through

    We're breaking through
    We're breaking through

    Wake up to the rising sun
    thank the Lord for the
    things He's done
    lift your eyes up to the
    hope that's ever true
    Wanna see you smiling girl
    you're a light in this jaded world
    wipe away those tears
    this one's for you

    Come on, move a little bit closer, you can put your head on my shoulder
    Yeah, yeah

    [Chorus]

    And the stars are up there
    shining for you
    oh, the Father does adore you
    His love will never change
    And you and I
    we were born to follow
    the hope that will lead us to tomorrow
    and no one can take it away

    So baby hold on
    just another day or two
    I can see the clouds are
    moving faster now
    and the sun is breaking through
    If you could hold on
    to the one that's holding you
    there is nothing that can stop this crazy, crazy love from breaking [x2]

    You see the clouds are
    moving faster now
    the clouds are moving faster

    You see the clouds are
    moving faster now
    And the sun is breaking through

    We're breaking through

    Love this one:)

    EH3, haven't heard that one before. I'm a fan of the album Alive and Transported, myself.
