ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
THAT’S THE DAY
Words and Music by William T. Bonnell and Paul Howard

I’ll never forget that day
There were no more
Soldiers, Kings, or Slaves
My memory of that day
Is the sweet breathe
Of true freedom
We opened up the gates
That’s the day, that’s the day
We let freedom ring
That’s the day, that’s the day
We let freedom ring
On that same day
A mosque and a church
Stood side by side
I saw it clear that day
The waves of terror
Ceased to thunder
We opened up our eyes
That’s the day, that’s the day
We saved the world
That’s the day, that’s the day
We saved the world
Oh listen to the children
They speak the truth
Living in total freedom
We celebrate the new
Now that’s the day, that’s the day
We let freedom ring
That’s the day, that’s the day
We let freedom ring
I’ll never forget that day
There were no more
Bombs being made
In the sky that day
The storms of hate
Began to crumble
All the dark clouds erased
That’s the day, that’s the day
We let freedom ring
Yes that’s the day, that’s the day
We saved the world

SURRENDER
Music and Words by William T. Bonnell

In choosing to do wrong
I have failed to do you right
I have sinned my way against you
When I should’ve held you tight
I hope that you forgive me
I could really use a break
You see I have no time for regret
And I have no time for hate
I raise my
I raise my flag
My white flag
To surrender
I saw it all in you
All the good that could’ve been
But I chose to take the other road
When I should’ve been your friend
I’m here to prove you wrong
I’m not the poisoned seed
I’m here to repent my sins
I got tangled in the weeds
I raise my
I raise my flag
My white flag
To surrender
I raise my
I raise my flag
My white flag
To surrender
When you throw your sticks and stones
They break my weary bones
And your words they bring me to my knees
I’m here to end this battle
I surrender you my heart
You see I knew you truly loved me
And I knew it from the start
By choosing to do right
I have opened up the door
So I give myself back to you
By giving up the war
I raise my
I raise my flag
My white flag
To surrender
I raise my
I raise my flag
My white flag
To surrender
I raise my flag

A PART OF ME
Music and Words by William T. Bonnell

When you wake up in the morning
Feel the warmth upon your face
For a hundred thousand years or more
We wake up to start our day
Rely on me
Like I rely on you
You’re my light
You are my sun
When we’re walking hand-n-hand
See the birds fly north again
For a couple hundred miles or more
They appear like a long lost friend
Rely on me
Like I rely on you
You’re my light
You are my son
There’s no doubt you’re a part of me
It’s so clear that anyone can see
When it’s time to tuck you in
Kiss your cheek and say goodnight
Don’t worry about those bad dreams now
The moon she’ll shine a little light
Rely on me
Like I rely on you
And it won’t be long
Till you see the sun
Raise your head above the water
Let cousin John wipe your face
See the dove swoop down towards you
Hear a voice come from outer space
Rely on me
Like I rely on you
You’re my light
You are my son
There’s no doubt you’re a part of me
It’s so clear that anyone can see
When it’s time to leave your side
Kiss your cheek and say goodbye
For a hundred thousand years or more
We’re born, we live, and then we die
Rely on me
Like I rely on you
And it won’t be long
Till we see the sun
You’re my light
You are my son
You’re my light
You are my son

THE PERFECT LIFE
Words and Music by William T. Bonnell

She spent a lifetime trying to live the perfect life
But she only lived the perfect lie
In her perfect house on the perfect night
She wondered where it all went wrong
She tried to live the perfect life
The kind where she’s finally satisfied
You know she never saw it coming
Her flawless plans went up in flames
He spent a lifetime trying to find the perfect life
But he only found the perfect lie
In his perfect car with his perfect wife
He wondered where it all went wrong
He tried to find the perfect life
The kind where he finally gets the prize
You know he never saw it coming
His faultless map went up in flames
I’ve spent a lifetime trying to live the perfect life
But it all turned out a perfect lie
I will pursue the perfect life
And probably will till the day I die
You know I never saw it coming
This chase is driving me insane
I need to live the perfect life
Why can’t I live the perfect life

LOOK WHAT WE MADE
Words and Music by William T. Bonnell

There was a time
I was a little boy
You had a doll
You were a little girl
There was a time
You had a doll
When we were young
The summertime
I rode my bike
You had a kite
Chased butterflies
The summertime
You flew your kite
And touched the sky
There was a time
There was a time
There was a time
There was a time
The stars aligned
When we found love
You let me inside
There was a time
When we found love
We were one
There was a time
There was a time
There was a time
Look what we made
Your simple words
And you held love
You held our son
Look what we made
As you held love
That sunny day
He looks like you
Those big brown eyes
She acts like me
Waiting on a smile
He looks like you
She acts like me
They are our love
Look what we made
Look what we made
Look what we made
The summertime
He rides his bike
She has a kite
Chases butterflies
The summertime
She flies her kite
Touches the sky
Look what we made
Look what we made
Look what we made
You and I

#41
Words and Music by David J. Matthews

Come see
I swear by now I’m playing time
Against my troubles oh
I’m coming slow but speeding
And do you wish for a dance
Then while I’m in the front my play on time is won
Oh but the difficulty’s coming here
My difficulty’s coming here
I will go in this way
And I’ll find my own way out
I won’t tell you what to be
Oh no but I’m coming to much more, me
All at once the ghosts come back reeling in you now
Tell me what if they came down crushing
It used to be that you and me played
For all the loneliness that nobody notices now
Oh I’m begging slow ‘cause I’m coming here
I wanted to stay I wanted to play
I wanted to love you
I’m only this far
And only tomorrow leads the way
I’m coming a waltzing back
To move into your head
Please I wouldn’t pass this by
Oh no but I wouldn’t take more than I need
What sort of man goes by
Well I will bring you water
Why won’t you ever be glad
It melts into wonder I came in praying for you
Why won’t you run into rain and play
Let all the tears splash all over you
The way I wanted to love you
And the way I wanted you to love me too
The way the rain comes down
The way the rain comes down
The way the rain comes down on you
The way it does
The way the rain comes down
The way the rain comes down
The way the rain comes down on you
The way it does
