Shine Down 04:10
Take the poison from my veins Take the evil from my mind Take the brokenness I am Take the pieces as they fall Take me from the path that leads To nowhere but my own demise Forsake me not for I am weakened Shine down on me Breathe your breath of life in me Scatter all my enemies Fill my cup until it overflows Shine down on me And the walls that surround are closing in Like they never have before Many are the ones to harm me And they’re beating down the door Will you rescue me in my time of trouble Do not turn a deaf ear when I pray Shine down on me And never let me go
I found trouble and sorrow You found me a way out I’ve known the depths of despair You filled the depths of my doubt It’s getting to the point where I can see Your love for me is never failing It’s getting to the point where I can see Your path for me is so much better Than where I’ve gone before I’ve known poverty and sickness You’ve known the blessings still to come I see it only in an instant You see it as it will become
One Of Them 05:08
There is no fear of God in their eyes I feel like I’m one of them They flatter themselves in their eyes I feel like I’m one of them Do you see me as a man after your heart? Or do you see me as one who curses your name? I feel like I’m one of them


This is the 2013 Mastered version of the 2003 release. These songs were fun to record after laboring over "3 Stories" for such a long time. I did my best to mimic Dr. Love on the guitar. Yeah, I know, not even close! Thanks anyway to the good Dr. for the inspiration.

2013 Master - Jeff Elbel
Cover Painting - Gerard

Trouble and Sorrow remains one of the best pop songs I’ve heard in a couple of years, it’s a guitar driven track that stops short of bursting into flame – it’s a wonderfully smoldering tune.
