"Believe" CD Song Lyrics

Too Much Stuff
(Shelly Niebuhr 2004 ASCAP)

Chorus:
Well, I got too much, I got too much
I got way too much stuff, and too little house for my stuff

Packed in the closets, under the bed, in the garage and so much in my head
I gotta clean it, I gotta organize it, and it takes up way too much of my time
I may never use some of it I have to say,
guess I don't know what to keep and what to give away

Chorus

Too many shirts, clothes and shoes, what is a girl supposed to do
Too many knick knacks, a lot of bric a brac, I'll get to it all someday
Lotions and potions, I bought it on sale, thought it would make me happy
but it has failed, now I'm stuck in consumerism jail

Chorus

Maybe I should buy a bigger house, that would surely do the trick
But what would happen when I outgrew it, guess it's time to change my spending ways

Chorus


Best Things In Life
(Shelly Niebuhr 2003 ASCAP)

The best things in life don't cost a dime
Can't buy the stars, can't buy the sunshine so
Let's make some life, and don't act like an adult
Stop making everything so difficult

Chorus

Ooo, honey, honey, don't put your faith in money

Remember when life was so sweet, when you could dance and move your feet
To the rhythm of your own beat, and at the end of the day have yourself a good sleep

The best things in life don't cost a nickel
Don't ya think its time to have yourself a good tickle
Let's make some life and build a castle in the air, you bring your dreams and I'll meet you there

Chorus

And when it all gets to be, well, a bit too much, take some time to eat chocolate
You'll feel better if you kick a can, then open up the screen door just to hear it slam

The best things in life don't cost a red cent
Can't buy true love, can't buy intelligence
So let's make some life and throw out the clocks, then sing together, ooo la la

Chorus

If you want less wrinkles better keep your life simple
If you want less stress then practice kind heartedness


Blue Sky, Blue Water
(Shelly Niebuhr 2003 ASCAP)

I'm walking these city sidewalks for the last time
Looking for a place, to slow down my mind
Is this all real, please tell me its not real
Cause I need to feel so much more than I feel
Woke up this morning and knew too much had slipped away
In all the cheap talk and loud thoughts in the busyness of all my days
Must everything in my life be tamed
Must everything in my life be claimed

Chorus

Blue sky, blue water is calling all of her sons and daughters
Come back home to the wild within, be free, be free once again


Heard the wind howling outside my window late last night
Sounded like Joshua's trumphet calling me with all her might
But is it too late, too late for me to find
The road that leads on to a little peace of mind
I no longer feel what once moved me so much
The walls I build inside have kept me out of touch
It's time to feel the earth again, it's time to let the night come in

Chorus

Blue sky, blue water is calling all of her sons and daughters


Spirit
(Shelly Niebuhr 2004 ASCAP)

I've been looking for a place for so long
somewhere to let my burdens go
To soothe the sorrow that sleeps deep in my soul
If I could, I would, undo this lesson that I learned
Cause the price was too high for this badge I earned

Chorus

Spirit wash over me, show me what I cannot see
Spirit wash over me, show me all that I can be


I have a deep longing I have a deep thirst
To understand and to know
What is my life worth in this ebb and flow
Death told me once, honey don't waste your time
The years fly by faster than your nickels and dimes

Chorus

So much I don't understand, sometimes I feel a loving hand trying to lead me home

Chorus


Believe
(Shelly Niebuhr 2005 ASCAP)

I want you to believe
in a better world
Can you conceive it for the boys and girls
Now more than ever in these troubled times
Believe that change is possible in hearts and minds

Chorus

I'm not saying to pretend that hate does not exist
But believe that love is stronger than this


Bad news, sad faces, tragedies
Some days it's too hard to see
But can you have faith for these and hold onto peace
To do what you can though it never feels like enough
Still in the face of this believe in the power of love

Chorus


God Bless The World
(Shelly Niebuhr 2004 ASCAP)

God bless the world, the peoples of all nations
we're all part of one creation, every race a celebration
God bless the world, and our different colors
Red, yellow, black and white, we're all precious in God's sight
God bless the world

Chorus

May everyone be happy, may everyone be free
May we learn to love each other and find true inner peace


God bless the world, the whole human family
God loves everyone equally, may we live in sweet harmony
God bless the world, we're sisters and brothers
We all need one another, God bless the world

Chorus

God bless the world, every single boy and girl
From sea to shining sea, let our hearts prayer be
God bless the world

Chorus


By The River
(Shelly Niebuhr 2003 ASCAP)

When I meet you by the river
There will be singing everywhere
No more anger no more sorrow
We'll have not a care

Hand in hand we'll go
All races all nations all peoples
Oh, and I'll met you there
Yes I will meet you there
Come and meet me there
By the peaceful, the peaceful river


Long Road Home
(Music: Jim Tiemann/ Lyrics: Shelly Niebuhr 2005 ASCAP)

We're all pilgrims, somtimes its a rough and weary road
Every birth, every death we carry the load
We're all traveling through smiles and tears
There really are no strangers, among us here

Chorus

Maybe at the end of our road
We'll come to know, home was inside us
All along


It's a journey of a thousand miles
We will stumble and fall
Somehow we grow stronger through it all
And I can hear them, singing us on
The ones, the ones who have already gone

Chorus

No matter how long it takes, no matter the years
We must find the truth, that's all around us here

Chorus


Moon Child
(Shelly Niebuhr 2002 ASCAP)


Chorus:

I'm just a moon child, my heart is still wild
I still dream my dreams, I still know how to smile
Take my hand and let's dance in the moon light
Oh baby, for the rest of the night

I left my home in Texas, and struck out on my own
Got caught between the moon and stars, feeling all alone
We were two drifters who met along the way
You held me close and whispered, here's what I've got to say

Chorus


I might be getting older, mostly I don't care
Cause I'm sustained by poetry, music and prayer
Darling don't you ever doubt, your sweet love helps keep me strong
The memories that we're making will carry us along

Chorus


Insecurity
(Shelly Niebuhr 2003 ASCAP)

One day I went to the market and what did I see
A little green man chasing after me
And he said "My name is Insecurity, it's my job to keep you in misery"
Everywhere I go he always follows me
I've been taking his advice since 1993
I don't enjoy his company, I don't want to grow old with insecurity

Chorus

I wanna go where I wanna go
I wanna be who I wanna be
I wanna see what I wanna see, with no apology
No insecurity


The little green man, he's always telling me
"You're not good enough to follow your dreams"
Tries to keep me in a state of anxiety
Time to rid myself of insecurity
So I wrestled three days, I wrestled three nights
It was the hardest fight of my entire life
Finally, I saw the beautiful sunrise, and the little green man had two black eyes

Chorus

Every now and then he whispers in my ear
"Come on, let me in again"
Sounds like a wolf dressed in sheep skin
But I'm not gonna let insecurity win

Chorus


Not Going Down
(Shelly Niebuhr 2004 ASCAP)

Times been hard lately, know what I mean
Are there really angels looking after me
I've worked so hard, for so long
Feel cold and tired and so alone

Chorus

I'm not going down (Amazing Grace)
No baby no, I'm not going down (How sweet the sound)
Ain't got much money but I got my soul
Been down on my luck but I still know
I'm not going down


Grief is such a cold hearted friend
Some things you can't let go of till the very end
Nothing to do but keep moving on
Something I must do on my own

Chorus

I have fallen but I got up again, I have cried but I have smiled again
I will get back on my feet again

Chorus
