1977 Sweet Comfort

It’s So Fine
(Soul Tune Boogie)

by Bryan Duncan

 

Oh, yeah
You refuse to believe, that you need company in your heart, mm
All I want you to see is a sweeter harmony for you life, yay
But you say you’re doin’ fine all by yourself, yeah!
But you don’t know what I know
No substitute will last

More than just a feelin’
It’s so fine!
Ooh!

No amount of money’s gonna show you how to live to be free, yeah
In the rock the honey doesn’t do you no good ’til you receive
Never put your faith in tomorrow
You may never make it today, yay
Without hope you shouldn’t be livin’, ow, wow!
Hate to see you have it your way

More than just a feelin’
Well, it’s so fine
Huh!

You’re afraid that my way of life is gonna cramp your style
But I’m only gonna be around for a little while, yay
So I want you to have the best of everything, ah, ah!
But you don’t wanna leave your temporary scene

More than just a feelin’
It’s so fine

More than just a feelin’
It’s so fine

Ryan’s Song

By Bryan Duncan & Rick Thomson

 

I saw another friend in town
And he said you’d gone away
Chasin’ your dreams across the sky
Never finding the light of day

Sometimes I get so worried
I even lose my courage
But in my mind I knew that you were near
But in my mind I knew that you were near

I told you on the telephone
But you did not want to hear
I say you in the café
But you turned and walked away
All I want to see is you
Bank on what will last
Find your higher dream come true
Higher than your past

Sometimes I get so worried
I even lose my courage
But in my mind I knew that you were near
But in my mind I knew that you were near

In my mind I knew that you were near

Your life is changed, you’re not the same
And I know the reason why
I knew you’d find it one fine day
Now you’re never gonna die

Sometimes I get so worried
I even lose my courage
But in my mind I knew that you were near
But in my mind I knew that you were near

Childish Things
(1 Corinthians 13:11)

By Bryan Duncan, Randy Thomas & Rick Thomson

 

Whoa oh, whoa oh, whoa oh
When I was a child
I understood just like a child
But now that I am able
I’m gonna lay it on the table, oh
When I was just a little child
I sopke just like a child
But now that I am older
I’m gonna lay down, lay down
Childish things

Oh, let me lay it down
And keep on gettin’ stronger
Let me lay it down
I don’t need them any longer
Childish things

Whoa!
When I was a child
I thought just like a child
Now I’m thinking clearer
I don’t need them any longer, oh
When I was a child
Well, I walked just like a child
Now I’m walking better
I’m gonna lay down, lay down
Childish things

Oh, let me lay it down
And keep on gettin’ stronger
Let me lay it down
I don’t need them any longer
Childish things

When I was a child
I understood just like a child
Now that I am able
I’m gonna lay it on the table, oh
When I became a man
I began to understand
I stopped acting like a baby
I’m gonna lay down, lay down
Childish things

Lay down, lay down childish things
Lay down, lay down childish things

Let it Go

by Bryan Duncan & Randy Lee

 

Well, the grass looks greener on the other side
So you jumped them fences ’til you almost died
But you still can’t find it, though you know you tried
And you ain’t got time to be free

Well you spend your money ‘fore you got it made
It ain’t so funny what the bills ain’t paid
But you keep on tryin’ for that one more thing
And you ain’t got time to be free

Well, let it go, let it go
Spirit move me, let it flow
Right now

Well, you love your body and you fill your mind
But your soul ain’t livin’ ’cause you ain’t got time
But you keep on wond’rin’ why you can’t find rest
And you ain’t got time to be free

Well, “I want it, want it right this minute”
“Want it,” is what I hear you say
“Want it,” you’re gonna jump right in it
“Want it,” they’re gonna make you pay

Let it go, let it go
Spirit move me, let it flow
Right now
Right now
Right now
Right now
You can be free
Be free
Be free

Your Life

by Bryan Duncan

 

All your life
You’ve always stood alone
Never needing anybody
To show you how to live
But now your life is changing
As the Spirit says it’s time
To hear the Father sayin’
Won’t you live your life in mine

You’ve had a lot of hard times
You’ve reaped a lot of pain
Felt a lot of sorrow
As you lived your life in vain
But now your life is changin’
Oh yeah, as the Spirit says it’s time
To hear the Father sayin’
Won’t you live your life in mine
(Live your life in mine)
Won’t you live your life in mine
(Live your life in mine)
Whoa, live your life in mine

Somebody Loves You

by Bryan Duncan

 

Lord, it’s so good to know that somebody loves you
You know it’s so fine to know that somebody’s there
Lord, it’s so good to share your feelings with someone
Who knows how you feel and knows how to care

Sometimes alone on the dark side of nowhere
Wondering, when is it all going to end?
Feelin’ the pain of a love, disregarded
Knowin’ the shame that comes from livin’ in sin

Somebody loves you
Alright, what I say, ah
Somebody cares for you, yeah
Somebody loves you
Oh it’s alright, yeah
Somebody loves you
Somebody cares
Somebody loves you
Somebody cares, play!

Sometimes a song on the wings of an angel
So sweet to me are the words of a friend
Patiently waiting in my world of misfortune
You make it easy to live life again

Somebody loves you
Oh, yay, whoa yeah
Somebody cares for you, yeah
Somebody loves you
Oh it’s alright, hey!
Somebody loves you
Somebody cares
Somebody loves you
Somebody cares
Somebody loves you
Somebody cares

His Name is Whispered

by Randy Thomas

 

When day was young and I would walk with him
We’d speak of you and how he knew you when
Recalling memories of times that knew you well
Deepest emotions that he alone could tell
Then he showed me his love for you
Greater love than you ever knew, well, yeah
Mounting up as an eagle to the sky, my oh my
On the wings of salvation you can fly, high

His name is whispered on a soft and gentle breeze
He can paint a thousand pictures with a word
I want you to feel the touch of his compassion
Sets a restless mind at ease
Then he tells me of his deepest love for you

You’ve never known him, he loved you from afar
That’s just his way, he loves you as you are
Man of mysteries, man of strength
Man of power, Prince of Peace

His name is whispered on a soft and gentle breeze
He can paint a thousand pictures with a word
I want you to feel the touch of his compassion
Sets a restless mind at ease
Then he tells me of his deepest love for you, well, whoa

God’s Got a Plan

by Bryan Duncan

 

Alright!
Whoo!
Ah ha!

“Love it or leave it” they always say
When you can’t handle any more
Talk about goin’ some other way
Try to find enough to live for
Satisfaction won’t accept you
You’ll never have enough to pay
People always comin’ to you
To try to take it all away

First we look at it your way
Tell me how does it do
Then we look at it God’s way
You ask me if it’s true
Hey, yeah, hey, yeah!
You know that it’s really true, ha!
God’s got a plan for you
It’s gettin’ better every day
And nobody can take it
Nobody can take it
Nobody can take it away
Do, do, do, do, do, do,
Do, do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do!
Ha, ha!
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do,
Do, do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do!
Oooh, oooh, ha, ha, ha!

Well, in the mornin’ look ahead to facin’ life alone
Oh, and you do or die
Try to call a friend, but no one’s home
Oh, it makes you want to cry
Well, all the friends you say you thought you had
You never needed anyway
Jesus said he’d never leave you
He said he had a better way, ah!

First we look at it your way
Tell me how does it do
Then we look at it God’s way
You ask me if it’s true, ha!
Hey, yeah, hey, yeah!
You know that it’s really true, ha!
God’s got a plan for you
It’s gettin’ better every day
Nobody can take it
Nobody can take it
Nobody can take it away
Do, do, do, do, do, do,
Do, do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do!
Ha, ha!
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do,
Do, do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do!
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do,
Do, do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do!
Do, ‘n do do, ‘n do do, ‘n do do!!

When I Was Alone

by Bryan Duncan

 

When I was alone
I came to know a friend of mine
When I was alone
His voice was never hard to find
And loneliness would leave me
And that is when I learned to say
I love you, I love you

When I was alone
Searching for a melody
He sang a sweeter song
And gave it as a gift to me
And that which I feared most
Is that which is most precious to me now
Oh

(Jesus, I love you)
Oh, Lord!
(Jesus, I love you
Jesus, I love you
Love you, love you)

When I was alone
Searching for a melody
He sang a sweeter song
And gave it as a gift to me
And loneliness would leave me
And that is when I learned to say
I love you, I love you

(Jesus, I love you)
Oh, Lord!
(Jesus, I love you
Jesus, I love you
Love you, love you
Jesus, I love you)
Oh, Lord!
(Jesus, I love you
Jesus, I love you
Love you, love you
Jesus, I love you)
Oh, Lord!
(Jesus, I love you
Jesus, I love you
Love you, love you
Jesus, I love you
Jesus, I love you
Jesus, I love you
Love you, love you)
