about

This is a project called "Odyssey of a Man." Basically I will be writing/recording one or two songs every month for a year. I originally got this idea from the band "Sleeping at Last." The whole idea of me doing this is just to push myself to write authentic music on a regular basis. You can find more about me and this project at www.amansvoyage.com

Track Name: The Seed
I pray to you, but do I believe the words I say
I sing to you, but does the melody come from love or pain
Is it doubt my lord, that keeps you from the depths of my heart
Is it fear my love, that tames the passion deep within this soul
Cuz all you need is a seed and you promised our faith will grow
Have my roots dried out has the water lost its flow
Or maybe it's a choice I've made to give up and try this all on my own
Beneath the rubble of a boy is the heart of a man who won't give up hope(x2)
Is it your love that holds my fragile world in place
Are the answers I seek the very thing that makes me weak
Were we born to find the answers or created just to believe
If I could only see my purpose when the darkness finds its way into me
Is it the darkness that blinds me or the hope that I won't show
Am I ashamed of the God that's kept my heart whole
Its not the beat of a heart that makes you God of all
Your grace has no gates but my heart it seems to climb then fall(x2)
Track Name: Brother
Tired eyes and a broken heart
Little boy I knew he’s all fallen apart
There you stand with weakened knees
But you’re still holding on to what you believe

“Son come home
Come home”

With your face to the floor
You say “oh God, I’m worn”
With your face to the floor
You say “oh God, I am worn”

And God says
“my son, come through these doors
Son come home
Come home”
Track Name: Baby Boy
I'm just a man and he's the rising
To put away the darkness we couldn't overcome
Can I be a father to the man that's meant to bring
Peace on earth and hope to everyone x2

And the baby boy was born, oh devil won't you flee from the man he's meant to be
And the baby boy was born, oh father won't you bring peace to humanity

Pierce our hearts and let your people know, their cleanliness does nothing for the soul
So put away those fears you hide behind, you act as though my love is hard to find

And the baby boy was born, oh devil won't you flee from the man he's meant to be
And the baby boy was born, oh father won't you bring peace to humanity x2

There i came to save the world, you still praise the idols and ignore just who I am and why I've come to be the banner of his love
Don't let me go, don't let me fall you cry and I'm still standing here with open arms and tired eyes I see the trail of every tear

Don't let me go, don't let me fall apart x4

No I won't fall, I won't fall apart
And if I do, Lord you won't let me hit the ground
I won't fall, I won't fall apart
With every tear, I'll find strength within my heart
With every tear, your heart breaks and makes me new
