New Map of the World Lyrics

PC3 New Map of the World album cover

Turn

How can you expect people in their right minds
To not see between the cracks
And notice that there’s something missing?
Wouldn’t you agree now is the right time
To be all that we can be?
Come and dream with me that we were all together 
In perfect unity
But we are torn apart by things that do not matter
And time is running out for us to see
We gotta turn this life around
Turn this life around
Turn this life around
Take a look around can you tell me
Why does it take a tragedy to bring us all together?
Who can change a heart change a motivation
Take it right back to the start?
Come and dream with me
That we were all together
In perfect unity following the maker

Run

Sometimes you gotta run into the arms of danger
Sometimes you gotta be the sacrifice
Sometimes you gotta say things that don’t come easy
They say just follow your heart but what if it lies
And God only knows
How to play this game called life and living
So hold me light a candle in the window pane tonight
Stop me running from the things that could save my life
Well you know I tried to make you love me
And I really should have known it’d make you run 
Some people always want just a little more than they’re given
But when it’s finally caught it loses its life
You better run, run, run, you better run

The Sun, the Stars and the Moon

Do you believe it’s true
It all depends on you?
If you were to fall down
We wouldn’t know what to do?
I’m a lonely soul
I’m a lonely soul
When I think I’m alone
I want to be the moon
‘Cause it reflects the sun
Don’t want to be the star
That shines on everyone
I want to be with you
‘Cause you’re the only one
Who heals my lonely soul
Have you ever got
Everything you want?
Well did you fake a grin
And feel you lose when you win?

Fill My Cup

Fill my cup to the top with running water
Call me out and show me how
I called on you lately come on and rescue me
I feel like a calendar from another year
This barren ground these bones are dry and ready
I break bread and wine but still I’m feeling empty
Sick of this sea-saw of going up and down
I see the rescue but would I rather drown?
Love is a lesson that I never learnt in school
I was sick in bed that day and so I played a fool
I feel light I could float right up to you
Like a bridge that’s connecting the water

Your Sweet Voice

Well I never really know why the cold wind blows
And the shades go down between you and I
All I know is that when you go
Something leaves this house and it ain’t no home
But I come alive with you inside
I wait for your sweet voice
Guiding me to the right choice
I wait for your sweet voice
Gotta let it go, let it go
To hear your sweet voice
Well you speak when you want and to who you want
And we can’t say who you choose
But we try to limit you with our human minds
In a box you go
But when I let it go it’s then you show
I love you it’s all right
I need you trust in me
I’ll lead you through tonight

Africa

Africa
I came to change you but instead you changed me
And I confess I came to frame you in a photograph
But you showed me why
And you turned this heart around
And I see your smile how it can be
So much brighter than me
And your silent eyes they scream
Of hunger and meaning and eternal dreaming
Africa
Africa
We smiled at you from behind the glass
And without reserve and whiter than snow
You smiled back at us
And you showed me who
And you turned this mind around
And I see your hands reach out to God 
So much higher than ours
And your silent eyes they scream
Of hunger and meaning and eternal dreaming
Africa
Afrika mimi naku penda
Dedicated to Mutisya (World Vision – Kenya)

Let Love Grow

You know that you’re such a lonely child
Did you ever let me know?
You say our love was an oversight
And now that you’re gone you can grow
And there you go
Love is emotion and wanderlust
And feelings too deep for a song
But love is decision and sacrifice
And without them love can’t go on
But there you go
There you go
Bring back the flowers of spring in this heart
Heal up the wounds that have torn us apart
Fall like the rain in the midst of a drought
And wherever you go
Let love grow
Time to pick up these pieces and start again
And draw a new map of the world
The regeneration of all of creation
Begins with a soul that will turn
So here I go
Here we go

Selfish Song

I don’t need reminding to look after myself
So maybe when you wave goodbye
You could think of something else
I don’t need reminding who is number one
On my list of priorities when all is said and done
I’ve never grown from the terrible two’s
I’ve just learned to hide from all of you
Who is gonna sing my selfish song
Well the answer is me so don’t sing along
Who is gonna change this heart of stone
Oh my God my life is a selfish song
Every revolution leads the people on
With promises and changes egalitarian
Hitler Mussolini Stalin Bonaparte
Well they prove a revolution
Doesn’t really change your heart
I’ve never grown from the terrible two’s
Don’t you know nothing changes after a coup
They build a wall from the east to the west
Saying maybe Jesus was a communist
‘Cause he spoke of love and equality
Then tell me why did they nail Him upon a tree?
‘Cause he said, everyone is singing such a selfish song
And we don’t want help not from anyone
I can make a change in your heart of stone
Hey don’t you know that you can’t
Do it on your own

Love Me More

I can’t believe that you still want me
After everything I’ve done
I can’t believe that you still want me
To be with you
I was sure that you would leave me
With the mess that I had made
I was sure that you would take away your love
But I was wrong and you’re still here
And your love it carries all my fear
And there’s nothing I can say
And there’s nothing I can do
To make you love me more
You’re the only one who loves me
Just the way I am
You’re the only one who loves me so perfectly
And even when I told you never call on me again
And even when I called your love a lie
But I was wrong ’cause you’re still here
I hear your voice whisper in my ear

I Dream

I closed my eyes again and I fought this traffic jam
And I tried to slow this engine down
But just like all last night I felt injustice bite
One body one chance one country at a time
And no rewind button
I dreamed of things I’m yet to be
And of angel wings that carried me
From suffering and agony to eternity
I dreamed that you were next to me
And all your scars refused to bleed
I dreamed that love and peace had power
Over fear and bitterness
I dreamed I saw a million angels
Coming forth to rescue me
Singing welcome home my faithful servant
Tantalizing images I dream
The sky was like an angry bruise
That wouldn’t let the sunlight loose
And bring us healing and take the swelling down
And these were years of insurrection
Condemnation and disconnection
Refusing to believe that you’d paid the tab for me
And unhappiness is here defined
To know the truth but to stay behind
And to burn your invitation to the promised land
I dreamed the dove of peace was chosen
Over fear and weaponry
I dreamed someone could raise a family
Never fearing tragedy
I dreamed I saw a million angels
Intercepting evil schemes
Love and comfort never ending
Everlasting images I dream
I dreamed I saw a million angels
Breaking through the clouds of grey
The sweetest sounds of hallelujah
Came and stole these blues away
I dreamed I saw a million angels
Coming forth to rescue me
Singing welcome home my faithful servant
Singing words I long to hear

The Killing Tree

All alone in an evil dream I see myself up high
And it’s me over you with my arms spread open wide
I try to run from the place I know that I can be set free
Come away come away there’s a sweet voice calling me
To the killing tree
I look around at all the faces who are passing me
And I run try to run with nails in my feet
All the time I was building castles on a sandy beach
Leading you leading you to a place I’d never been
To the killing tree
Come on
I know what you’re asking me and I don’t wanna give
‘Cause it’s safe and I know ’cause I’ve been here all these years
All the precious pain I hold without it there is fear
And I’m afraid when you say that you’ll get me outta here
To the killing tree
Come on
Come away to a place of healing
So now I run to you and I move from night to day
For to live I must die and there’s still no other way
I was alone in an evil dream but you took my place up high
Now it’s you over me with your arms spread open wide
On the killing tree
Come on

Lullaby

Have you lost your way?

Do you think you’ll get it back again?
Did you find something in the rubble of your memory?
It’s a mystery
That through a death I found my life again
And in suffering I found a key that I had thrown away
And now I’ve started it up
And I filled up my cup
And now I’m lost in your love
And it’s more than a memory
And now I’ve started again
And what I thought was the end
Was another beginning from here to eternity
So here we are
Flesh and bone and spirit lifted up
And that’s everything
You’ve ever needed and it’s all you’ve got
All we’ve got
Hallelujah
