Fearless

LYRICS FROM THE CD FEARLESS

Fearless
words & music Claudia Carawan © 2008 Heart Over the Bar, (ASCAP)

I was born to live life fully
to let go of regret
To walk the high wire of life
without a safety net
To follow something even bigger than my pride
To show up with courage
even when I’m trembling inside

I will not worry about what others think of me
I will not be shackled
by the chains of conformity
I’ll break the mold set in the past
Keep pushing till I’m free at last
I’ll follow the path of my heart
and make my life a work of art
Call me fearless, I am fearless

I’ll follow the road to adventure everywhere
Let the top down and the wind tangle up my hair
Hitch my dreams onto the brightest star
On the trapeze of life
I’ll throw my heart over the bar

On the other side of fear lies euphoria
and a greater understanding of who you really are
I’ll break the mold set in the past
keep pushing till I’m free at last
I’ll follow the path of my heart
and make my life a work of art
Call me fearless, I am fearless

I’ll push outside the comfort zone
Remembering I’m not alone
I’ll follow the path of my heart
and make my life a work of art
Call me fearless, I am fearless.
I’m stronger than I realized! I am fearless!

Shine
words & music Claudia Carawan © 2008 Heart Over the Bar, (ASCAP)

Shine the light into the world
Shine the light into the world
Shine the light into the world

It is time for one and all
To live the dream, answer the call
There is enough love in your heart
To change the world
The world needs our love

Shine the light into the world
Shine the light into the world
Shine the light into the world

We will plant the seed
Wherever there’s a need
We are the very hands of love
reaching out into the world

Shine the light into the world
Shine the light into the world
Shine the light into the world
Shine the light into the world

We’ve reached a place in our human evolution
People git ready for the love revolution
For every problem there is a solution
Now is the time to put on your shine.
Where is God is the midst of tragedy,
but living in the hands and heart of humanity!
Answer the call and love will set you free
Now is the time to put on your shine

Repeat Chorus

I Rise in You
words & music Claudia Carawan © 2008 Heart Over the Bar, (ASCAP)

The dead of winter is over and gone
And a brand new day is finally dawn
The bitter cold and icy gloom
Are now tiny buds upon the bloom
They will rise in you

You are my light (You are my light)
You are my job (You are my joy)
You are my strength (You are my strength)
I rise in you
You are my hope (You are my hope)
You are my love (You are my love)
You are my peace (You are my peace)
I rise in you

Let everything upon this earth
Participate in the rebirth
and be born a-new
Let every heart be lifted higher
Let every soul now be inspired to rise in you

You are my light (You are my light)
You are my job (You are my joy)
You are my strength (You are my strength)
I rise in you
You are my hope (You are my hope)
You are my love (You are my love)
You are my peace (You are my peace)
I rise in you

You are the force that lifts the eagles wings
You are the power that makes my heart to sing
You are the power that turns an acorn to a tree
You are the power working miracles in me
I Rise in you, I Rise in you

You are my light (You are my light)
You are my job (You are my joy)
You are my strength (You are my strength)
I rise in you
You are my hope (my hope)
You are my love (my love)
You are my peace (my peace)
I rise in you

Beautiful
words & music Claudia Carawan © 2008 Heart Over the Bar, (ASCAP)

Sometimes this world can break your spirit
that’s for sure
Comparisons and doubt will leave you feeling insecure
But you can’t hide what you are inside

You are beautiful
Golden like the sun
Shine your light on everyone
You illuminate the night like a morning star
I see you as you truly are
You are beautiful, beautiful

Please listen to my words and try them on for size
the impact that you make you never realize
You can’t hide what you are inside

You are beautiful
Golden like the sun
Shine your light on everyone
You illuminate The sky like a morning star
I see you as you truly are
You are beautiful, beautiful

The Truth About Wings
words & music by Donna Britton, Kat Corac & Megan Conner © Mountain Row Music, (ASCAP)

It’s a big old world with an open sky
Far to go and much to see
and stretching out for miles and miles
are endless possibilities
Where your heart will lead you may not know
so take this wisdom with you
when you decide to go

There’s a truth about wings
you don’t know how strong they are until you fly
and you wont feel the heights
Til you’re willing to have faith beyond your sight
When you find them you can do anything
That’s the truth about wings

Somedays it will seem like a long hard climb
Sometimes you’re gonna fall
You wonder if you have the strength to rise about it all
When the weight of what you carry seems too much
and it looks like there’s no place to go but giving up

There’s a truth about wings
you don’t know how strong they are until you fly
and you wont feel the heights
til you’re willing to have faith beyond your sight
When you find them you can do anything
That’s the truth about wings

When you see the clouds ahead
don’t you turn around
face the storm and ride upon the wind that holds you down
and keep believing

There’s a truth about wings
you don’t know how strong they are until you fly
and you wont feel the heights
till you’re willing to have faith beyond your sight
Now that I found them I can do anything
That’s the truth about wings
That’s the truth about wings
That’s the truth about wings

Keep My Faith
words & music Claudia Carawan © 2008 Heart Over the Bar, (ASCAP)

What cha gonna do when the hard times come?
Keep my faith
What cha gonna do when your dreams seem undone?
Keep my faith
What cha gonna do when they give you the run-around?
Keep my faith
When they smile in your face, then put you down
Keep my faith

Keep my faith, Keep my faith
Keep my faith, Keep my faith

What cha gonna do if it hits the fan?
Keep my faith
If things don’t go according to your plan?
Keep my faith
What cha gonna do if they don’t like the song you sing?
Keep my faith
and they don’t like the message that you bring?

Keep my faith, Keep my faith
Keep my faith, Keep my faith

Breakdown
Assurance of all things hoped and prayed for
Natural force that will break down any door
When your confidence takes a blow
Hold true to what you know
All things are possible, All things are probable
You only need the size of a mustard seed
When the going gets tough,
You gotta show the right stuff
You already got enough,
Just make a correction, point it in the right direction
Remember this in all you do,
God has a plan for you

When others let you down… Keep your feet on the ground
And keep your judgement sound
Despite what others may say or do
The greatest enemy lives inside of you
Thoughts of negativity, anger, addiction.
Choosing to live with drama and friction
Keep the high watch on your thoughts and feelings..
Keep your eyes on the prize in all your dealings
Say to negativity… get behind me
Say to your dis-belief …get behind me
Say to negativity… get behind me
I gotta keep my faith.
This time I’m gonna keep my faith

Repeat Chorus

As You Believe
words & music Claudia Carawan © 2008 Heart Over the Bar, (ASCAP)

Spread your wings and fly
You belong to the sky
Many wonders lie waiting
within your mind’s eye

As you believe (as you believe)
you will receive (you will receive)
As you believe (as you believe)
you will receive (you will receive) As you believe

With great clarity
Claim your destiny
Beyond perceived boundaries…Lies possibility

As you believe (as you believe)
you will receive (you will receive)
As you believe (as you believe)
you will receive (you will receive)
As you believe

Keep hanging on, sight unseen
The world belongs to those who believe in their dreams
You will receive (as you believe)
You will receive (as you believe)
As you believe

The Song is You
words & music Claudia Carawan © 2008 Heart Over the Bar, (ASCAP)

Spirit flow through me
Like a melody
Ancient and brand new
the song is you

May all people hear
Strains so sweet and clear
Let your joy come through
The song is you

I will be the instrument you play
Bring your sweet music to me each and everyday

For what joy I know
to be in your flow
every note rings true
when the song is you

I will be the instrument you play
Bring your sweet music to me each and everyday

For what joy I know
To be in your flow
Every note rings true
When the song is you
Every note rings true
When the song is you

Making More Room for God
words & music Claudia Carawan © 2008 Heart Over the Bar publishing, (ASCAP)
Written for the Capital Campaign to expand the sanctuary at Unity Christ Church of Bon Air, Richmond, VA
www.makingmoreroomforgod.org

I used to see the world with a cynic’s view
I thought the winning game
was only relegated to the lucky few
But now I know that if you choose
happiness will come to you
So I’m making more room for God

I ran around in circles, so unaware.
I was caught up in this mindset
Struggling to get my share.
Now with eyes wide open
I see abundance everywhere
So I’m making more room for God

So I’ll open up my heart
and I’m lifting up my thoughts
and I’m breaking down the walls that surround my mind
and something amazing is happening right now
I’m making more room for God

Please allow me one more time to state my case
The years of pain & heartache, all have been erased
Now I know the meaning of Amazing Grace
So I’m making room for God

I’m ready for this challenge I’ve never felt so strong
If love has changed your life you want to pass it on
With Spirit leading us we can’t go wrong
Together let’s start making more room for God

So let’s open up our hearts
and start lifting up our thoughts
and start breaking down the walls that surround our minds
and something amazing is happening right now
We’re making more room for God

Let’s tear down the walls and open wide the doors
We’re making more room for God
We’ll never set the world on fire
if we’re only preaching to the choir
Keep making more room for God

More Than You Know
words & music Claudia Carawan © 2008 Heart Over the Bar publishing, (ASCAP)

More than the clouds up in the heavens
More than the sands upon the shore
More than the colors of the rainbow
More than the poet’s metaphor
More constant than the movement
of the ocean’s ebb and flow
More than you can fathom
You are loved more than you know…

You are loved, You are loved.

More than the heat of Summer
or the power of the sun
More than the mystery of the full moon
when the day is finally done
More than the countless icy crystals
in the Winter’s falling snow
Beyond your comprehension
You are loved more than you know

More than words could ever show
You are loved more than you know

More than the wisdom of ages,
More than you can understand
More than the power of music
to inspire the heart of man
More than the seconds in a lifetime
or frequency than the radio
Beyond your comprehension
You are loved more than you know

More than you could ever know
You are loved more than you know

More expansive and life changing
if you could feel it through and through
So take it easy on yourself and let this message carry you
where ever you may go… what ever you may do
This love has got your back
This love will see you through
More than language can express
More than you could ever guess
More…
You are loved more than you know

You are loved more than you know
You are loved more than you know

Legacy
words & music Claudia Carawan © 2008 Heart Over the Bar publishing, (ASCAP)

Nothing lasts for long
Fashions will come and go
Sure as the wind will blow
Diamonds turn to dust
Empires that now stand tall
Eventually will fall

What can I build that’s strong
To last enduring on and on
Forever to stand the test of time
I want to leave a legacy of love.

The treasures I collect…
End up as a tiny speck in a landfill
All that I achieve
soon in time will be
another faded memory

What can I build that’s strong
To last enduring on and on
Forever to stand the test of time
I want to leave a legacy of love

Each act of love takes its own course that cannot be explained
Like ripples on the water love cannot be contained.
In wanting more I have lost sight of what it means to live
The greatest joy in life comes from the love we give

Love pure and sublime
Something to give and feel
One thing that is truly real
Transforming everyone
who is touched by its grace
traveling through time and space

Love I can build that’s strong
to last enduring on and on
Forever standing the test of time
I want to leave a legacy of love
Oh let me leave a legacy of love
