The Bubble Bursts from the Daniel Amos album "BibleLand" Words and Music by Terry Taylor ©1994 Shape Of Air Music, BMI I'm not quite as bad as you think I am Not quite as good as you might have planned I let you down and I'll do it again I'll burst your bubble I'll burst your bubble I'll burst your bubble that thin membrane's in lots of trouble I value all the words you don't want to hear Conceal every doubt that you've learned to fear Your heroes are just human and this much is clear (Chorus) Come early, take a number and then stand in line where I'll wrap each disappointment in a warning sign No there'll be no big surprises when I'm in decline (Chorus) When you say your prayers please include my name if my humanity causes you some pain Hoping for the best and I will do the same So hold up my heart if I twist your brain (Chorus)

Cloud of Witnesses words and music: Terry Scott Taylor ©2019 Shape Of Air Music, BMI There from my lofty vantage point I came to watch over you I said, “Please sir,” to an angel, “remove your hat so I can get A better view” That’s when someone pulled a lever And the misty curtain was withdrawn On a scene of a little house with tall trees And you laughed and danced across its summer lawn Where are you going in your Bright, clean, and innocent dress? The cloud of witnesses says “It’s anybody’s guess” And then you crossed the equator In a broken glass bottom boat In the bottomless depths of your ocean, you knew you had to Sink and drown to stay afloat The years are timid and fleeting; Tears of dew on morning grass They took you to Loveland and bad lands You didn’t notice there the faithful Shepherd with his staff Where are you going in your Bright, clean, and innocent dress? The cloud of witnesses says “It’s anybody’s guess” And with your babies gone now You’re learning how to let them go Their memories dance across your summer lawn and Like those who came before, You want to know Where are they going in their Once clean and innocent dress? The cloud of witnesses says “It’s anybody’s guess” Now you hold a faded photograph of You in your Mother’s lap You sigh as your old hand trembles alongside these words that I once scribbled on the back: Where are you going in your Bright, clean, and innocent dress? The cloud of witnesses says “It’s anybody’s guess” And all I can do for you today is My very best

Shadow Catcher from the DA album "Fearful Symmetry" Words by Terry Taylor Music by Terry Taylor and Tim Chandler ©1986 Broken Songs (ASCAP) His eyes, make pictures when they close He follows, pure breezes where they blow The earth and ocean seem to sleep In one another's arms and dream He does not fear this haunted keep But swims the shimmery boundless stream Chorus: Shadow catcher Shadow catcher Shadow catcher His hands, turn shadows into gold Three wonders, the spirit wind unfolds Shapes that haunt thought's wilderness These are the world's rejected guests Glass darkly shades the final rest Still He will surely past this test (Chorus) Here the wind will sigh and weep And all the world is drowned in sleep Yet His eyes do watch and keep And the Spirit guides his feet, shadow He prays, the Lamb of God descends He seeks, a kingdom without end Comes the hour of his distress When temptations do oppress But each sin he does confess Embracing now his unseen Guest (Chorus)

Only One words and music: Terry Scott Taylor ©1980 Shape of Air Music, BMI You take what you need, my baby Still it’s not enough You’ve broken so many hearts now No, you’re not untouched Holding your lovers, tell me Was it in their eyes? They're just a memory fading You must realize There is only one Only one Only one Only one, One who can save you The scent of a flower, baby That you’ve never seen Girl, there’s a voice that’s calling It’s more than a dream Diamonds appear, like glitter You hold them in your hands But like all your possessions They all turn to sand ‘Cos there’s is only one Only one Only one Only one, One who can save you Holding your lovers, tell me Was it in their eyes? They're just a memory fading You must realize There is only one Only one Only one Only one, One who can save you Only one Only one Only one Only one One who can save you

Child On A Leash from the DA album "Mr. Buechner's Dream" Music by Daniel Amos, Words by T. S. Taylor ©2001 Zoom Daddy/BMI I'm asking you why I never get inside the place where I belong Whenever I Think I've got a hold of you that's when You're gone Chorus: And I'm feeling like a child on a leash There's a hand just outside of my reach There's a light on in another room I'll arrive too late and leave too soon I just die Whenever I get sight of you you're Movin' on I wanna cry When I think I've got it right and then it goes All wrong (Chorus) Where would I go? (it's always back to you) Where would I run? (it's always back to you) What would I do? (it's always back to you) Forever back to you Forever back to you And i'm wondering why Chorus I just die I just die I just die I just die

When The Judgement Comes words and music: Terry Scott Taylor ©2001 Zoom Daddy Music, BMI from the Lost Dogs album "Real Men Cry" Lord, give me a pair of traveling shoes when the judgment comes Lord, give me a pair of traveling shoes when the judgment comes 'Cos I ain't got no traveling shoes. Lord said, "I got some pretty good news, something else that you can use when the judgment comes." "I'll send a chariot built with nails and wood when the judgment comes I'll send a chariot built with nails and wood when the judgment comes A horse named grace that I've taught to fly, He'll be arriving by and by To take you up yonder past the big blue sky when the judgment comes." Lord, give me a coat and a walkin' cane when the judgment comes Lord, give me a coat and a walkin' cane when the judgment comes 'Cos I ain't got no coat and cane. Lord said, "I guess I best explain, You ain't gonna need a doggone thing when the judgment comes."
