Campfires and Masquerades Lyrics

Let me know your thoughts on this song’s lyrics. 🙂 I love the part that says, “Those who fear the grave, never find the truth”

Campfires and Masquerades
by Jason Upton

I remember a story
A story of a little boy
The story of a mother’s child
The story of all

I remember the middle of the darkness
Reaching out for a hand to hold
Reaching out for anything
That will lead me back home

I’m still here
I’m still waiting for you
After all these years

I remember the shadows
On the walls of my memory
They more around like reality
In this prison that we’ve made

And I remember the first born sunrise
Couldn’t stand to open my eyes
Like a blind man wandering
On the edge of his grave

I’m still here
I’m still waiting for you
After all these years
After all these years

Campfires and Masquerades
Come and go like cheap parades
When nothing’s lost and nothings’ changed
We like it that way

Our politicians have to lie
Because if they opened up our eyes
We’d kill them just like the others who tried
To pull us out of this cave

Maybe that’s why we’re so shaken
When our questions have the courage to
Come and drag us from our fiction
Those who fear the grave
Never find the truth

Everyday begins at midnight
If we’re ever gonna see the sun rise
Somebody’s gotta wake up
Before the morning comes

Somebody’s gotta wake up
Gotta wake up
Somebody’s gotta wake up
Before the morning comes…

A Love Song

"message in a bottle" by sparklezdtr via redbubble.com

I just would like to share a song I wrote this afternoon. The Refrain (both melody and words) is still in the works… And I’m thinking a third verse would be nice. 🙂 Hoping to finish it soon…

This is dedicated to all my single friends/readers and all those who are no longer single after waiting long for “The One.” This is also for those who are hoping to learn to trust God when it comes to ‘love.’

Cheers!
-Riz


A Love Song

Verse I
We don’t know what we’re missing
But I don’t really care
They say that time is ticking
To hurry up, ‘coz love might not be fair

Verse II
But I’ve learned to lock up everything
That’s meant only for you
I’ve bottled up my words and pray’rs
For God, and my God-picked you

Refrain
For though I live for today
I’m saving for tomorrow
I know you’re worth all the wait
For my Daddy promised…

Chorus
He makes all things beautiful
In His time, in His time, in His time
And so I surrender everything
In His hands, in His hands, in His hands

Repeat Chorus
