Redemption JJ HELLER

When the dying’s over When the last tear falls When the empty wells overflow To fill us all Redemption We’ll see it with our very own eyes Very own eyes and we’ll realize We’re alive for the very first time The very first time Burdens we have carried Melt away like snow Loved ones gone before us Welcome us home Redemption We’ll see it with our very own eyes Very own eyes and we’ll realize We’re alive for the very first time The very first time Someday we will remember how to fly Then we will rise like embers burning … Continue reading Redemption JJ HELLER

Stay JJ HELLER

When you can’t feel a thing After too many stings When you forget about grace The world is a lonely place Stay with me You’ll be surprised There’s a world of color Beyond black and white Open your eyes Let in the light You’ll see when you stay with me When you can’t hear a thing There are no words to sing You keep your heart where it’s safe But the world is a silent place Stay with me You’ll be surprised There’s a world of color Beyond black and white Open your eyes Let in the light You’ll see … Continue reading Stay JJ HELLER

Control JJ HELLER

The cut is deep, but never deep enough for me It doesn’t hurt enough to make me forget One moment of relief is never long enough To keep the voices in my head from stealing my peace Oh, control It’s time, time to let you go Perfection has a price, but I cannot afford to live that life It always ends the same; a fight I never win Chorus I’m letting go of the illusion I’m letting go of the confusion I can’t carry it another step I close my eyes and take a breath I’m letting go … There … Continue reading Control JJ HELLER
