1982 Cutting Edge

Runnin‘ To Win
(B. Duncan / J. Schreiner)

I’ve been anxiously training,
I am young and strong and ready to go.
I’ve heard the gun and the race is on now,
I didn’t get here just to show.

I keep running, give it everything I can.
I keep running, never looking back again.
Endure the aching deep within,
I’ll keep running hard to win.

Started out in an ocean,
A sea of runners at my side.
Now they’re falling back one by one,
And I’m never going to be denied.

I keep running, give it everything I can.
I keep running, never looking back again.
Endure the aching deep within,
I’ll keep running hard to win.

Now’s the time when I pray for my second wind.
I’ve got to find that desire inside again.

The heat is on, it’s not over,
I can see the battles waving from here.
I can’t let anything hold me back now,
Seeing that the end is near.

I keep running, give it everything I can.
I keep running, never looking back again.
I keep running, give it everything I can.
I keep running, never looking back again.

What Have You Got
(R. Thomas / B. Duncan)

I’m watching you from behind the scenes,
To see if what you say is what you mean.
But you don’t know it cause I play it cool,
Now I don’t want to be nobody’s fool.

I’m moving up you know I’m on top of names,
I look the part, I’m playing all the games.
But you don’t care to know what people think,
So, could it be you’ve found the missing link.

What have you got – That I haven’t got,
What have you got – That I haven’t got,
What have you got – That I haven’t got more of.

I’m up to date, I mean I’ve got the look,
You take your style from a different book.
I see your difference here like night and day,
Just tell me, how much do I have to pay.

You’re everything that I would like to be,
You do it right as far as I can see.
I guess you’re making me a jealous man,
So I’m asking for a helping hand.

What have you got – That I haven’t got,
What have you got – That I haven’t got,
What have you got – That I haven’t got more of.

What have you got – That I haven’t got,
What have you got – That I haven’t got,
What have you got – That I haven’t got more of.

Is it love, or is it fate,
Is it love for the human race.
That makes you life so much better than mine.
So tell me what it is.

Falling In Love With You
(Thomas / Duncan / Thompson / Schreiner)

I remember the first time I felt you,
Touch my life and took my heart away
Time, they say that time will always tell,
And in all these years, I’ve loved you every day.

And every time I turn around,
I’m falling in love with You,
You’re the one true love that I can count on.
And after all these years I’ve found,
I’ve never grown tired of You,
It’s a lifetime love, only beginning.
Only beginning.

Love is such an easy word to say,
But the hardest thing in life, to live.
Please, don’t be mistaken when I cry,
Cause your love is worth the time,
That it takes to give.

And every time I turn around,
I’m falling in love with You,
You’re the one true love that I can count on.
And after all these years I’ve found,
I’ve never grown tired of You,
It’s a lifetime love, only beginning.

And every time I turn around,
I’m falling in love with You,
You’re the one true love that I can count on.
And after all these years I’ve found,
I’ve never grown tired of You,
It’s a lifetime love, only beginning.
Only beginning.

And every time I turn around,
I’m falling in love with You,
Falling in love with you,
Falling in love with you

Haven’t Seen You
(R. Thomas / B. Duncan)

Well I haven’t seen you for a long time,
And I’ve wondered just how well you’ve been.
I’m sitting alone in the evening,
So I thought I would write to a friend.

I remember some sad times together,
When a smile was a hard thing to find.
And I leaned on you harder than ever,
Cause you gave me a lot of your time.

Since then you’ve burned all your bridges,
And you carry the weight by yourself.
Nobody knows where your heart is,
For we all hear it crying for help.

Haven’t seen you for a long time
Ooooh, haven’t seen you for a long time.
Haven’t seen you for a long time,
Ooooh, haven’t seen you for a long, long time.

Well I guess we’ve both gone through some changes,
And our edges are worn here and there.
But you showed me the secret to living,
And sharing my love through a prayer.

Now you tell me you’re quite hard to live with,
Well, I’m ashamed of myself now and then.
But I found a new life in forgiveness,
It can put you in touch once again.

But now you’ve burned all your bridges,
And you carry the weight by yourself.
And nobody knows where your heart is,
But we all hear it crying for help.

Ooooh, haven’t seen you for a long time.
Haven’t seen you for a while.
Haven’t seen you for a long time,
Ooooh, I haven’t seen you for a while.

Haven’t seen you for a long time.
Haven’t seen you for a while.

Breakdown Love
(Thomas / Duncan / Duke / Schreiner)


We keep dreaming bout the good life,
We’ve been lookin’ but it’s just not there.
And I don’t even know just what we’re heading for.

We’ve been doing things our own way,
When we try we’re just a wasting our time.
And I don’t understand the things you do to me.

We’re heading for a breakdown love,
Don’t you think it’s time we’ve turned it around?
Heading for a breakdown love,
Turn it around.

Parting’s such a hard road,
Taking chances it would pass us by.
But we can take this life right back,
To where it used to be.

We’re distracted by the bright lights,
We’ve been acting like we just don’t care.
Seems I never get a chance to spend my time with you.

We’re heading for a breakdown love,
Don’t you think it’s time we’ve turned it around?
Heading for a breakdown love,
Turn it around – Turn it around.

We’re heading for a breakdown love,
Don’t you think it’s time we’ve turned it around?
It’s gonna be a breakdown love,
Turn it around
We’re heading for a breakdown love,
Don’t you think it’s time we’ve turned it around?
We’re headed for a breakdown love,
Turn it around,
Turn it around,
Turn it around.

Valerie
(R. Thomas)

I watched the lights out on the harbor,
Saw the sun rise on the water.
I felt the waves of desperation,
And spent the day in contemplation.

Valerie, you always told me,
The love I seek, someday would hold me.
Valerie, Valerie, a change in me has been in the making.

While gazing down at my reflection,
I clearly saw my life’s direction.
I thought about the things you said to me,
The simple promise that you read to me.

Valerie, you always told me,
The love I seek, it someday would mold me.
Valerie, Valerie, a change in me has been in the making.

I saw a vision on the harbor,
A man was walking on the water.
I felt the waves in sweet salvation,
And spent the day in celebration.

Valerie, you always told me,
The love I seek, would someday enfold me.
Valerie, Just had to tell you,
Now I know, the love that compelled you.

Valerie – Valerie.

Changed Hearts
(J. Sabolick / B. Duncan)

You were crying, to the last minute of the song.
You were moved, and in the crowd you sat alone.
Empty hearted, reflected clearly in your tears,
And you knew, the time had come to face your fears.

Changed hearts make changed lives,
And I see one in you, when I look into your eyes.
Changed hearts make changed lives,
And I see one in you – See one in you.
Changed hearts make changed lives,
And I see one in you.

You were crying, as you listened to the lines,
The song was you, the situation and the time.
Claimed forgiveness, was just an attitude away,
The point of view, just another way to say,

Changed hearts make changed lives,
And I see one in you, when I look into your eyes.
Changed hearts make changed lives,
And I see one in you – See one in you.
Changed hearts make changed lives,
And I see one in you.

The song can make you cry,
And take your heart away.
And feeling lost sometimes,
Can be enough to turn you around.

Changed hearts, changed lives,
I see one in you.
Only changed hearts make changed lives

Live It
(R. Thomas)


I’ve been watching you, every thing you do.
Every step you take, and every move you make.
I’ve got my eye on you, to see if your heart is true.
Follow you every day, listen to every word you say.

They tell me you have got the answer.
I’ve got to see it in your life.
It’s only truth that I am after.
I won’t believe in any lies.

Oh, you’ve got to live it,
Before I believe a word you say.
You’ve got to live it,
And there is no other way.
Live it, prove every word you say is true,
You’ve got to live it, show me in everything you do.

Of all the things I’ve heard,
Actions speak louder than words.
And I know that talk is cheap,
And a promise hard to keep.
It’s easier said than done,
It’s easy to turn and run.
And if you stand your ground,
You can turn my heart around.

They tell me you have got the answer.
I’ve got to see it in your life.
It’s only truth that I am after.
I won’t believe in any lies.

You’ve got to live it,
Before I believe a word you say.
You’ve got to live it,
And there is no other way.
Live it, prove every word you say is true,
You’ve got to live it, show me in everything you do.

What Did It Mean
(R. Thomas / R. Thompson)

The mailman was early, the lawyer was late.
I filled out the papers and sent him away.
It’s hard to believe you can buy your way out of love.

You called me to say that you don’t have much time.
Just make out a check and sign on the line.
But could you please hurry, it can’t be done soon enough.

And I’m not getting any younger,
But look at what you’ve done girl, to me.

I remember when you’d hold hold me so closely,
That nothing could come between.
All the words of love you told me, now what did it mean.
What did it mean (what did it mean when you’d hold me)
What did it mean (what did it mean when you told me)
What did it mean (what did it mean when you’d hold me)
What did it mean.

I thought that I’d die when you walked out the door,
Now sometimes I cry till the tears come no more.
The meaning is lost and I don’t know where to turn.
Desert and pain is the web that you weave.
A vicious greed is pay when you leave.
It seems that the cost was more than it was worth.

And I’m not getting any younger,
But look at what you’ve done girl, to me.

I remember when you’d hold hold me so closely,
That nothing could come between.
All the words of love you told me, now what did it mean.
What did it mean (what did it mean when you’d hold me)
Was it anything (what did it mean when you told me)
What did it mean (what did it mean when you’d hold me)
What did it mean.
What did it mean (what did it mean when you’d hold me)
Where’s we go wrong (what did it mean when you’d hold me)


Fades out with various words of chorus…

Armed And Ready
(Thomas / Diggs / Schreiner)

I am preparing to face the fight,
Put on my helmet and fasten it tight.
Wearing the armor that keeps my heart pure,
Take up the shield that will help me endure.

My only weapon, a mighty sword,
My one allegiance to my King and Lord.
I live my life by the words that He says,
That is what gives me the cutting edge.

Armed and ready,
Ready to face the fight.
Armed and ready,
Ready to live, ready to die, ready to give my life.

The war is unseen but the battle is real,
I’m holding a weapon with power to heal.
It can divide between spirit and soul,
Cut to the heart when it reaches its goal.

The King that I serve was the Prince who was killed,
Long years ago, on a far away hill.
Now there’s no need for more blood to be shed,
Since His return to life from the dead.

I’m armed and ready,
Ready to face the fight.
Armed and ready,
Ready to live, ready to die, ready to give my life.

Ready to face the fight – Oh, ready.
Ready to give my life – ready to face the fight.

Armed and ready,
Ready to face the fight.
Armed and ready,
Ready to live, ready to die.

armed and ready,
Ready to face the fight.
Armed and ready,
Ready to live, ready to die
Ready to live, ready to die, ready to give my life
