Until I’m there with You….. oh my sweet Lord
I’m glad You’re here with me
Until I kneel before You …. on Judgement Day my King
I’ll serve You with my life
Because I know that I know….oh Lord I know
I know You’re coming for me.

Worship interlude

Until I’m there with You….. oh my sweet Lord
I’m glad You’re here with me
Until I kneel before You …. on Judgement Day my King
I’ll stand for You with my life
Because I know that I know….oh Lord I know
I know You’re coming for me.


Notes: I was praying during a particularly rough time and told God that until I was there with Him I was so glad He was here with me. These simple words were powerful to me as I focused on His presence in my life.  I wanted the song to be simple — about Him and not me.

You are here with every new day
You are here with every prayer
You are here with every praise I sing
You were there for my first breath
And You’ll be there with the last one I take

Let my heart rejoice
I am here I’m Yours

I am here to hear Your voice

Even Me, a gospel song by Lahle WolfeEven Me

Music and Lyrics 
1999

Verse:  EAB EAB   Chorus:  E A B E A B

Verse 1

E                                            A
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want
B                                              A                     E
So why do all these things come to my mind?
E                                               A
He maketh me to lie down in His green pastures
B                                                A                                E      
But the grass sure looks so green on the other side

Chorus

A                                    E                                
His grace is sweet and ohhhh to good for me
His love is strong and it set me free
I sing Amazing Grace because after all the things I’ve done
He loves me, He loves even me.

Verse 2, 3

He leads me beside His calm still waters
But I still keep drowning in an ocean of pride
He restores me soul, His path is righteousness
But I can’t even walk straight down a bowling lane.

I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I won’t fear evil, but I sure fear all the rest
Like what men think of me am I good enough?
What will happen when You call my bluff?

Chorus

His gift is free and He saved a wretch like me
He said He has a place for me for all eternity
I sing Amazing Grace because after all the things I’ve done
He loves me, He loves even me.

…. And you!


Notes: Sitting in the tub decades ago, I just started singing this song.  I was definitely singing about myself because I am such a wretch and have been forgiven for so much.  I praise Him for forgiveness, but we must also cease from our mistakes.  That’s often the harder part for me.

Knock Knock

Music and Lyrics

Knock Knock, Song by Lahle Wolfe about domestic violence

I feel a burning on my skin
He said “knock, knock girl, let me in.”
Didn’t answer I was too afraid
He said, “Silly girl, do you know the mess you made?”

I feel a tingling down my spine
“Knock, knock girl, let me in you’re mine.”
Too slow to answer again this time
He said, “Bad bad girl you need to get… in…. line.”

Knock knock girl, he broke down the door
He hit me hard and I hit the floor
Knock knock girl should’ve let me in
Now get on your knees and repent … your sins.

Bridge

The whiskey devil grabs my neck
It’s boozy stench starts to steal my breath
Knock knock lady said The Man let us in
The monster in cuffs just turns… and grins

No place to hide, no place to go
Another mother on the run with a TRO
While her babies sleep in the Motel Six
She turns her head towards a familiar click….

According to the Centers for Disease Control, in the United States alone,  4.8 million women are victims intimate partner-related physical assaults and rapes.   I was one.*

2.9 million men are victims of physical assault from their partners.  That adds up to almost 7.7 million domestic violence victims per year in the USA, or roughly 2% of the population.

Kiss Me Or Don’t

VERSE 1,2

Say you will or say you won’t
You say you love me but I think you don’t
Break my heart baby but don’t break it slow

Don’t lie come clean cause you know I can tell
That’s not my perfume, Baby, that I smell
Break my heart Baby but don’t break it slow

CHORUS

I’m so tired of hearing all your lies
Your boyish charm doesn’t work and it really really hurts
When you pull your hand from mine
It doesn’t matter what you say you’ll do
You know you’ve been untrue
So kiss me, or don’t

VERSE 3

I can feel her in your hips
One kiss will tell me if there’s a lie on your lips
So just kiss me kiss me kiss me kiss me kiss me … just kiss me … or don’t

Some Things

Dark Rose 2 by Lahle Wolfe

A love song about leaving the past in the past, unless you are reminiscing, of course.

Chords:  D     E9/D9 

Some things can never unsaid
Like I love you,  yes, I do
What was I thinking way back when
When I was young?

Some things can never be unheard
Still I’m reminiscing about loves songs
That were never even sung
When I was young

When I was young…. ooh ahh
When  was young …. ooo ahh
When I was young…..ooo ahhh
When I was young…..ooh ahhh

Some things should never be undone
Still I miss you sometimes
Sometimes I don’t
Because….

Some things can never be unsaid
Like I love you, yes, I do
What was I thinking way back when?
