Here are six songs culled from my past and present, conveniently "gift-wrapped" for you in one package.

Lyrics:

03. LIKE A STONE
Words/Music by Audioslave

On a cobweb afternoon
In a room full of emptiness
By a freeway I confess
I was lost in the pages

Of a book full of death
Reading how we'll die alone
And if we're good we'll lay to rest
Anywhere we want to go

In your house I long to be
Room by room patiently
I'll wait for you there like a stone
I'll wait for you there alone

And on my deathbed I will pray
To the Gods and the Angels
Like a pagan to anyone
Who will take me to Heaven

To a place I recall
I was there so long ago
The sky was bruised
The wine was bled
And there you lead me on

In your house I long to be
Room by room patiently
I'll wait for you there like a stone
I'll wait for you there alone, alone

Alone I read
Until the day was gone
And I sat in regret
Of all the things I've done

For all that I've blessed
And all that I've wronged
In dreams until my death
I will wander on

In your house I long to be
Room by room patiently
I'll wait for you there like a stone
I'll wait for you there alone, alone

04. WHEN I WAS YOUR MAN
Words/Music by Bruno Mars, Philip Lawrence,
Ari Levine & Andrew Wyatt

Same bed, but it feels just a little bit bigger now
Our song on the radio, but it don't sound the same
When our friends talk about you all that it does is just tear me down
Cause my heart breaks a little when I hear your name
And it all just sound like uh, uh, uh

Hmmm too young, too dumb to realize
That I should have bought you flowers and held your hand
Should have gave you all my hours when I had the chance
Take you to every party cause all you wanted to do was dance
Now my baby is dancing, but she's dancing with another man.

My pride, my ego, my needs and my selfish ways
Caused a good strong woman like you to walk out my life
Now I never, never get to clean up the mess I made
And it haunts me every time I close my eyes
It all just sounds like uh, uh, uh, uh

Too young, too dumb to realize
That I should have bought you flowers and held your hand
Should have gave all my hours when I had the chance
Take you to every party cause all you wanted to do was dance
Now my baby is dancing, but she's dancing with another man.

Although it hurts I'll be the first to say that I was wrong
Oh, I know I'm probably much too late
To try and apologize for my mistakes
But I just want you to know
I hope he buys you flowers, I hope he holds your hand
Give you all his hours when he has the chance
Take you to every party cause I remember how much you loved to dance
Do all the things I should have done when I was your man!
Do all the things I should have done when I was your man!

05. IF I CAN MOVE THE MOUNTAINS
Words/Music by David Wu

You say, you say that I can move mountains
But Lord, this work that you gave me
Seems too much for me
Sometimes, I don't think I can go through it
Even with You by my side, Lord
Won't you give me a sign?

Tell me, tell me what do you see in me?
What gifts have you laid before me?
I don't know - I can't see
Help me - I just don't know what to say
And I've got some giants to slay
And I don't know if I can run this race

If I can move the mountains
Why can't I even move my feet?
Who am I to do this work
That you have set for me?
If I can move the mountains
Lord, show me the way
Use me for your glory today

They say I don't know what I am doing
Never aware that they're hurting me
So I stumble along
Maybe, maybe I'm just a fool
But I'm a fool for you
And all I need to do is trust in you

If I can move the mountains
Why can't I even move my feet?
Who am I to do this work
That you have set for me?
If I can move the mountains
Lord, show me the way
Use me for your glory

Half the time, I know I'm far away
But Lord, You called me to this task today
I long to see Your face
Moving through life by grace
Holy Spirit, move through me

I just need to pray to You
Have faith in You
And trust in You ...

Then I can move the mountains
Now I know and it's clear to me
What a joy to do this work that you have set for me
Yes, I can move the mountains
'Cause you revealed the way
Use me for Your glory
Yes, I can move the mountains
'Cause you revealed the way
Use me for Your glory
For Your glory
Only for Your glory
Today

06. ARE YOU GONNA GO MY WAY
Words/Music by Lenny Kravitz & Craig Ross

I was born long ago
I was chosen by the One
I have vowed to save the day
And I won't leave until I'm done
So that's why we got to try
We've got to breathe and have some fun
Though I'm not paid I play this game
And I won't stop until I'm done
(But what I really want to know is)
Are you gonna go my way?

(Please baby) and I got to (please) got to know (I got to know) yeah

I don't know why we always cry
This we must leave and get undone
We must engage and rearrange
And turn this planet back to One
So tell me why we got to die
and kill each other one by one?
We've got to hug and rub-a-dub
We've got to dance and be in love
(But what I really wanna know is)
Are you gonna go my way?
(Please baby) and I got to, got to know (I got to know)

Are you gonna go my way?
'Cause baby I got to know, yeah
