CAST A LINE – Album Lyrics

Cast a Line

Writers: Christian Parker © BMI. Peter Pendras © Toolbox Music BMI

White light of a distant sun
On a bluebird day
Down below and up above
Nothing seems the same

Here we are caught in between
Darkness and the dawn
No matter where we go
Keep movin’ on

Cast a line
When a star falls from the sky
Know the reason why it’s falling

We traveled side by side
Shoulder to the wheel
Turn the labor into love
On a fertile field

Seasons come and seasons go
Moons wax and wane
Up above and down below
Some things never change

Cast a line
When a star falls in the sky
Know the reason why it’s falling

Cast a line
When a star falls in the sky
There’s no need to cry
‘Cause it’s falling

Faded Memories

Writer: Christian Parker © BMI

There’s a faded spot on the wall, where a picture once fell
and time stood still on a photo reel
There’s an old trunk on the floor, and memories framed
these pictures of you are all that remain

The seasons may change, and the house re-arrange 
and nothing rings true
except for memories of me and you

There’s an old clock in the hall that’s made not a sound
its hands do not move when you’re not around
There’s a small crack on the door, where light would shine thru
the children would play and sing with you

The seasons may change, and the house re-arrange 
and nothing rings true
except for memories of me and you

Time lingers on and brushes a hue
A fresh coat of paint will never do

The seasons may change, and the house re-arrange 
and nothing rings true
except for memories of me and you

Tulsa County

Writer: Pamela Polland. Universal Music Publishing Group

My nights have been lonely
Since I’ve been in Tulsa County
And I really don’t know what I’m goin’ to do
I just might take a trip somewhere
Along the southern border
‘Cause I know I’ve gotta get away from you

I don’t know
Just where I’ll go
I believe I’ll ride it down to Mexico
Down to Mexico

Got your note in Charleston
Said “You needed my assistance”
But when I got there
You didn’t need me then
I may not be a wise man
But I know this life you’re leading
You learned your tricks from lots of other men

I don’t know
Just where I’ll go
I believe I’ll ride it down to Mexico
Down to Mexico

I don’t know
Just where I’ll go
I believe I’ll ride it down to Mexico
Down to Mexico

Dark Eyed Gal

Writer: Ron Davies. Universal Music Publishing Group, Warner Chappell Music, Inc.

Well, the midnight train can come and go without me
No I don’t need no taxi back to town
I think I’ll just stay right here in this deep old light
I was supposed to meet someone here tonight
I’m sittin’ here thinking
Waiting on a dark-eyed gal

Well, I don’t mind the rain; I never even noticed
And I don’t feel the cold, it wouldn’t matter anyhow
As a matter of fact I could stay until the break of day
I don’t see as I’m in anybody’s way
I’m just sittin’ here thinkin’
Waiting on a dark eyed gal

She said she’d meet me at the station
I don’t believe she’ll keep me waiting very long
Very long

She never told me if she was coming with me
Or if she only meant to say her last farewell
Never was one to let me know her mind
So I’ll stay right here, keep doing my time
Just sitting here thinkin’
Waiting on a dark eyed gal

The midnight train has come and gone without me now
But I don’t need no taxi back to town
Matter of fact I could stay until the break of day
I don’t see as I’m in anybody’s way
Now I’m sittin’ here thinkin’
Waiting on a dark eyed gal
Yes, I’m just sitting here drinkin’
Waiting on a dark-eyed gal

Fire With Fire

Writer: Peter Pendras © Toolbox Music BMI

Been through some battles
Fought too many wars
So much blood spilling on the ground 
Down on the killing floor 
Now bullets are flyin’
Through the parking lot
Tell me who is the enemy
When the innocent they get shot

Try to get even 
It will drive you insane 
You can’t fight fire with fire 
When the devil don’t feel no pain

Some say it is freedom
At a mortal price
Written by the fathers
Within some legal rights
But when the air is quiet
And the firing has ceased
Another body is on the ground
A family left to grieve

Try to get even
It will drive you insane
You can’t fire with fire
When the devil don’t feel no pain

Pray to God in heaven
Time and time again
But you can’t fight fire with fire
When the devil don’t feel no pain 
No, the devil don’t feel no pain

One Life, One Love

Writer: Christian Parker © BMI

Times moving fast
It never moves slow
It never grows weary
It never grows old

One life, one love
One life to love

Dreams were lost
Ones we never knew
Ones we never found 
Some never came true

One life, one love
One life to love

Love never ends
It always comes through
It always protects
It always stays true

One life, one love
One life, one love

Every Passing Mile

Writer: Christian Parker © BMI

There’s always something, weighing on my mind
Always something can’t sanctify my time
I’ve been driving, crossed the county line 
Counting wires and poles along the pine
And I see her with every passing mile

Every Passing Mile, Every Passing Mile 
Every Passing Mile, Every Passing Mile

I have a picture, I carry in my bag
No, I can’t see her, her words keep coming back
You’re always hiding like a train along the track 
You can’t deny it those feelings that we had 
And I see her with every passing mile 

Every Passing Mile, Every Passing Mile 
Every Passing Mile, Every Passing Mile

Slow Life

Writer: Christian Parker © BMI

There’s a girl who hides away
Spends her time lost hopelessly
The rain keeps fallin’ down I heard her say 
Can we survive another day?

Life without regret you’ll see
Times running out for you and me
Life without regret you’re free
Runway Ms. make-believe

Once in a while, I feel ok
Climbing out is another thing
The world is flat it’s round somedays
Falling off is the only way

Life without regret you’ll see
Times running out for you and me
Life without regret you’re free
Runway Ms. make-believe

Last Glance

Writer: Christian Parker © BMI

These shattering moments 
When all remains still
Are constant reminders 
Of our human will

In a fleeting desire 
It’s all left to chance 
From a flame to a fire 
Became her last glance

We’re all given choices 
We’re all given life 
We’re all given love 
And light

A mothers laid burden
A son’s mortal coil 
Seeds once scattered 
Are sown and toiled

Her tears always fall 
And dry in their tracks
She’ll always remember
The very last glance

We’re all given choices 
We’re all given life 
We’re all given love 
And light

This Time

Writer: Christian Parker © BMI

Somewhere along the road, you’ll find yourself
Facedown in the dirt like somebody else

I’ve got to say, all the things that I meant to say

Somewhere far away lying in the dark 
Heaven’s wide awake in a broken heart

This Time I’m going to get it right 
Found my faith and seen the light
Leave all my troubles far behind 
Nothing’s going to get me down 
This Time
Somewhere far away in a timeless place
Waiting patiently for her warm embrace

I’ve got to say, all the things that I meant to say

This Time I’m going to get it right 
Found my faith and seen the light
Leave all my troubles far behind 
Nothing’s going to get me down 
This Time

Ordinary Girl

Writer: Christian Parker © BMI

Faith, I just can’t breathe anymore 
I’ve never been here before
There’s someone knocking at my door

Ah, Faith, there’s something in the back of my head
It’s telling me it’s not over yet
Been trying not to forget

So many times, I’ve fallen from her grace
She’s an Ordinary Girl in every way
Ah, Faith
Faith, been trying to find my way back home
It makes me feel all alone
There’s light in the deep unknown 

So many times, I’ve fallen from her grace
She’s an Ordinary Girl in every way
Ah, Faith

Faith, there’s something on the tip of my tongue
Ever since I was young
Been trying to find someone

So many times, I’ve fallen from her grace
She’s no Ordinary Girl in any way
Ah, Faith, Ah Faith, Ah Faith 

Dream Catcher

Writer: Christian Parker © BMI

If you only had one day to give 
Would you know how
If you only had one life to live 
Could you somehow

Know how, somehow
Dream, dream, dream 
If the world were yours to give away 
Would you know how
If stars were yours to light the day 
Could you somehow

Know how, somehow
Dream Catcher 

Sojourners Prayer

Writer: Christian Parker © BMI

Lord help me see
The dark inside of me

Release this misery 
Let your light come down

Your grace is all we need
Lift our hearts and minds

Help us not be blind
Lord help us learn

The truth inside your word
Let your light come down

Your love is all we need 

Help us to believe
