So Much More

Janie used to dream heavily of Hollywood,

always wanted to be a star

when she was just seventeen, she loaded up her car

Headed out to Cali, where they said all the big names are

but all these years later, her priorities have changed

as they tend to do, they say wisdom comes with age

she still loves to perform, believes there’s nothing

wrong with such a thing,

but also knows there’s so much more

to life than the stage and fleeting fame

What’s Your Heart Set On?

Do you believe, wholeheartedly,

in the Lord and Creator of all things?

We humans, collectively,

sometimes tend to be

distracted so easily,

even when we don’t want to be

One day the things and worries

of this present world will be gone

We should be very careful about the things

we set our hearts upon

Coming Home To Stay

Thirty thousand feet above the ground

Staring out a window, looking down

Flying over the Astrodome,

he can’t wait to get back home,

It seems his family always ends up waiting there,

cause he’s got another deal to make elsewhere,

He told them, “This time I’m coming home to stay, I swear”

He has flashbacks of his daughter, at four years old,

w/pink ribbons in her hair

now she’s graduating college & he wants to be there

He knows her growing up without him hasn’t been fair
