Dancing With Danger
I Won't Let it Come Between Us

DANCING WITH DANGER

Raised with a Bible in your hand
You met your parents' strict demands
But now that sweet religious child
Is like a hurrican gone wild

(Chorus)
And you're dancing
Dancing with danger
Lies from a stranger 
Waltz inside your head
You've got your back to
The One who really loves you
Can't see what's ahead

No liquor and no cigarettes
Are rules you're learning to forget
But it's not so much the outward part
'Cuz God is looking at your heart

(Repeat Chorus)

You've danced yourself out on a ledge
Your dreams are falling off the edge 
God never wanted it that way
He wants to shake your fears away

(Repeat Chorus)



I WON'T LET IT COME BETWEEN US

You know wrong can sure look good sometimes
And it's caught my eye just like a jewel that shines
It calls to me like one of my friends
But it's trying to tear my heart from Yours in the end

(Chorus)
But I won't let it, no, I won't let it 
No, I won't let it come between us
I just  won't let it, no, I won't let it
No I won't let it come between us  
Because, Lord, Your love's too precious to me now

A world of pleasure laying at my feet
The wine of recklessness can taste so sweet
But nothing stirs my soul like knowing You
Yet evil's foot is in the door and it's coming through

(Repeat Chorus)

The rebel in me's hungry to be wild
And I listen to her like a foolish child
Driven by desires in the wind
I find I'm eye to eye with sin once again

(Repeat Chorus)


STRENGTH OF MY LIFE

I open my eyes to the sound of morning news
And wish for ten more minutes left to sleep
And as I get into the shower the thoughts of facing one more day
Overwhelm me and I begin to weep
And I've never felt like I've needed Your help so bad

'Though my tears are pushed away now for the sake of morning rush
'Til the Bible on the table catches my eye
And I read that You are near to the hearts that break with grief
And I realize that I don't have to try
To live life myself 'cuz You're ready to help me live 

(Bridge)
Every day I look to you to be the strength of my life
You're the hope I hold onto, be the strength of my life

(Chorus) 
Be the strength of my life, the strength of my life
Be  the strength of my life today (Repeat)

Each day has its problems, its troubles and its tears
And it seems I'm always anything but strong
When I learn to know my weakness, I understand Your strength
And even when the hard times last so long
I won't try by myself, I'll just ask for Your help each day 

(Bridge)
Every day  I look to you to be the strength of my life
Breathe on me and make me new, be the strength of my life

(Repeat Chorus)


GIVE 'EM ALL YOU'VE GOT TONIGHT

Hot restless night, headed for trouble
You stand alone in the crowd
You know His love but they think you're crazy
But don't be afraid to tell them
'Cuz they're just dying to know 
They're blindly falling in a black hold
And you're just watching them go
Don't let them go

(Chorus)
Give 'em all you've got tonight
Give 'em all you've got tonight
They're falling, they're dropping left and right
So give 'em all you've got tonight

Hang tight, hang tough, don't let them sway you
'Cuz you've got the flame of life in your heart
They talk you down but still they'll keep watching
And where you see nothing but blackness
There shines the brightest light  
He never said it would be easy
You've got to get up and fight
C'mon tonight

(Repeat Chorus)

No empty words tonight
No legalistic pride
He wants them all to know
He's on their side


BY MY SPIRIT

(Chorus)

Not be might, not by power
But by my Spirit says the Lord
Not be might, not by power
But by my Spirit says the Lord

Sometimes fears can hide your vision
The loss of purpose chains you down
You think I've forgotten all you're dreaming of
But how could I forget the one I love

(Repeat Chorus)

I can see your heart is tired
And your courage has worn thin
You wonder how long you will have to hang on
But when My love comes in, you'll be strong again

(Repeat Chorus)

(Bridge)
These mountains will be removed
I'll build my temple in you
And what I've promised
Shall be done

(Repeat Chorus & Bridge)


HIDING IN THE SHADOWS

It's been awhile since she's felt
She could look someone in the eye
Quite a while since she's felt
The strength to even try
All her sins are piled like a tower of doom
And no one knows she's not what they assume

(Chorus)
'Cuz she's been hiding in the shadows of a lie
Hiding in the shadows you can die

So sincere no one could have doubted where she stood
But through the years only her intentions remain good
Like an actress typecast in a picture perfect part
She played her role but it wasn't from the heart

(Chorus)
And now she's hiding in the shadows of a lie
Hiding in the shadows you can die

It only gets harder to tell the truth
And one lie is never enough
It may be hard to admit you've failed Him now and then
But healing comes when His light illuminates your sin
People might reject you when the truth is hard to bear
But failure is the one thing we all share

(Chorus)
So don't go hiding in the shadows of a lie
Hiding in the shadows you can die


POWDER ROOM POLITICS

Well, I walk inside just to fix my hair
And the girls at the mirror all start to stare
Then they look back at their reflection we all compare
And it's powder room politics
Oh, oh, oh powder room politics
Yeah, powder room politics

While I wished I could wear this one girl's size
Another girl was wishing that she had my eyes
And we were all feeling worthless 'til I realized
It's just powder room politics
Oh, oh, oh powder room politics
Yeah, powder room politics

We feel like we're not worth much in any scene
If we don't look like the girls in magazines
And we're all being robbed of our self esteem
Oh, oh, oh powder room politics
Yeah, powder room politics

Well, I told that girl that she had nice eyes
And then I stopped worrying about my size
And as I left I was glad to leave the lies
Of powder room politics
Yeah, powder room politics


LIGHT OF LOVE

I don't want to love you
At least not the way you're thinking
I don't want to climb the stairs up to your room
The love that we'd reach for
Would disappear at dawn with the fading moon

(Chorus)
And in the light of love
You'll see how long it takes for love to be
In the light of love
I'll wait to have you and you'll wait to have me

I have lonely sunsets
Where my heart sinks into dusk
And I want someone to hold me through the night
I know that you are willing
But if it's not forever
I just can't walk away from what is right

(Repeat Chorus)
He makes it shine down from above
For man and wife to share His love

(Repeat Chorus)


SONG IN THE NIGHT

After midnight all is still
The world sleeps without a sound
Cold just cuts into your soul
And you know death is all around
As we gather on a hill
In the dark someone starts the song
Like an army we move out
To fight the evil and wrong

(Chorus)
(And like a) song in the night
We'll be true to the light
And burn the gates of hell
The song in the night
Will bring life to those who hear it
(And) Jesus has given us
A song in the night

There are battles that we've lost
Though we've tried with all our might
But if we weren't such a threat
Then he wouldn't put up such a fight
As our song of triumph sings
It brings fear to Satan's heart
And we life our shield of faith
To catch his fiery darts

And sing the song in the night
We'll be true to the light
And burn the gates of hell
The song in the night
Will bring life to those who hear it
(And) Jesus has given us
A song in the night


HERE HE COMES WITH MY HEART

(Chorus)
Here He comes back from the dead with my heart
Hope is singing as He's bringing me life
Here He comes back from the dead with my heart
There is nothing too hard for Him

The way I saw Him was torn and lifeless
As they took Him down from the cross
And my heart went with Him into the tomb
All seemed lost--my life was lost

(Repeat Chorus)

Nothing can stop Him now that He's risen
He's set all the prisoners free
As He comes He's bringing gifts of power
Just for me--for you and for me

(Repeat Chorus)
