Songs from LOST IN TRANSIT

 

Rose On The Altar (Robert's Prayer)

  

     

Vs 1.  I lay a rose upon the altar, as a symbol of my love,

a gift for you my blessed mother, in heaven above.

I am wicked, I am wild, Mother help your helpless child,

Mother so gentle, Mother so kind, Pray for me!

 

CHORUS

When I gaze on your smiling face,

I believe some way I can find grace,

You are the light that I see,

there is hope, there is hope for me!

You are my guiding star, when I am lost in the night,

Dear lady shining bright, shine on me!

 

Vs 2. I lay a rose upon the altar, as crimson as my sin,

 I throw myself upon your mercy, just take me in!

I am crying in despair, in my anguish lift my prayer,

Mother have pity, Mother look down, pray for me!

 

CHORUS

Till one day in th' hour of my death,

 let your name seal my final breath,

You'll have compassion on me,

you will hear, you will hear my plea!

Angels will carry me near to my heavenly goal,

Mother so full of love, pray for my soul!

 

IN  LOVE

 

Sam  When I’m with you, the world seems bright

A Paradise, made just for two

And in that place that’s full of light, I see an angel – I see you!

And I will always love you, for as long as I live,

With every beat of my heart   (I will –)

Till all the rivers run dry, the sun doesn’t shine;

 I’m yours – you are mine!

 

Mia  When I’m with you, there is no night

And Paradise surely is true

I seem to wing an angel’s flight

To rise….  to heaven with you!

And I will always love you, for as long as I live,

With every beat of my heart   (I will –)

Till all the rivers run dry, the sun doesn’t shine,

 I’m yours – you are mine!

 

Sam and Mia I’ll never forget your smile                                       

Though darkness should come between

My heart will still sing, that you will be my love, evermore!

 

I’ll live with you /You’ll live with me    in Paradise

I’ll always hold you in my heart

I’ll live with you /You’ll live with me    in Paradise

Never to part – evermore

 

I’ll live with you  --  I adore…

In Paradise –  evermore!

Ever – more !

ROSE ON THE ALTAR

Robert’s plea for forgiveness, sung by the late RJ Rozales.  

THE RIVER

 

There is a river that flows from the forest,

To waves falling gently for ever and more

Never should water turn back in its running –

Could the river – forget – the way to the shore.

 

Dark flows the current, slow are the waters –

Heavily laden, no more to run free –

There’s too much to carry, no way to keep going,

The river – has lost – its way to the sea.

 

Does the sun still sparkle on the waves by the beach?

Do the trees still sway where the land meets the sea?

I’m aching, I’m burning but for me there’s no returning,

To the home, to the home, where my heart wants to be.

 

One day the winds will blow a new season

Rain will bring blessing to earth and to men,

When the fountains are full and the wells overflowing,

The river runs back to the ocean again.

The river runs back to the ocean again.

THE RIVER (no vocal track)
