Personal Note from Gregory Johnson [ Song List | Top ]

For the first time ever, the annual Heart Songs CD is being released in the spring of the year. My hope is that these songs, along with the beauty and fragrance of spring, will help express wisdom and establish hope for the year ahead.

Much has happened in the short time since last year's Heart Songs CD was released. I've had some experiences in recent months unlike anything in my lifetime. So, I anticipate that I'll be fully committing the remainder of the year in dedication to serving existing projects and commitments. My hope is that the coming year will be one of expanding love and transcending enlightenment.

The song "Fallen" is dedicated to those of pure heart who are striving for good in the world, yet have fallen along the way. May you be healed, comforted, and restored. The song "Remember Me" is dedicated to my son Jordan and daughter Alexis. The songs "Where is the Love?" and "Love One Another" are dedicated to my dad who taught me to creatively and passionately work for a better world. The song "Beautiful" is dedicated to anyone who has questioned their own beauty.

The songs "What Dreams Are Made Of," "One & One," "You Take My Breath Away," and "Angel" are dedicated to an angel in my life who carried me in her arms to new heights and brought me to a place of deep healing and bliss.

The songs "I Will Rest in You," "Everywhere," and "Breathe" are dedicated to God. The songs "Heaven is a place on Earth" and "Heaven" describe the bliss of romantic love, and are also a proclamation about creating heaven on earth.

I am very thankful to everyone who is hoping for and working toward making this world a better place. - Gregory

 

1) A Hundred Thousand Angels - Bliss [ Song List | Top ]

Album: A Hundred Thousand Angels
Artist Website: http://www.blissfulmusic.com/
Order from Artist: http://www.blissfulmusic.com/flash/flashorder.htm

Do you hear me calling you,
the voice of a mother and a father and a child.
Would you recognize the truth,
do you feel the love that´s falling from my eyes ?

Take just a minute,
come and rest you by my side.
Let me tell you your own story,
let me walk you through your lives.
Only a second,
that´s all it takes to realize,
there´s a hundred thousand angels by your side.

Do you hear me talk to you,
I whisper through doorways and pathways of your mind.
Clear like the morning dew and fresh from my journey cross an ocean of blue...

Take just a minute,
come and rest you by my side.
Let me tell you your own story,
let me walk you through your lives,
only a second that´s all it takes to realize,
there´s a hundred thousand angels by your side.

 

2) I Will Rest In You - Jaci Velasquez [ Song List | Top ]

Album: Streams [CBD Lookup]

Lord, I'm in the dark,
Seems to me the line is dead when I come calling.
No one there, the sky is falling;

Lord, I need to know.
My mind is playing games again,
You're right where You have always been.

Take me back to You,
The place that I once knew as a little child;
Constantly the eyes of God watched over me.
Oh, I want to be
In the place that I once knew as a little child,
Fall into the bed of faith prepared for me.

I will rest in You,
I will rest in You,
I will rest in You.

Tell me I'm a fool,
Tell me that You love me for the fool I am,
[And*] comfort me like only You can,
And tell me there's a place
Where I can feel Your breath
Like sweet caresses on my face again.

Take me back to You,
The place that I once knew as a little child;
Constantly the eyes of God watched over me.
Oh, I want to be
In the place that I once knew as a little child,
Fall into the bed of faith prepared for me.

I will rest in You,
I will rest in You,
I will rest in You.

I will rest in You,
I will rest in You,
I will rest in You.

La la la la You.
La la la la la.
La la la la la-ah.
(You,) You la la la la You.
La la la la la-ah. (You.)

Take me back to You.
The place that I once knew as a little child;
Constantly the eyes of God watched over me
Oh, I want to be
In the place that I once knew as a little child,
Fall into the bed of faith prepared for me.

I will rest in You,
I will rest in You,
I will rest in You.

I will rest in You,
I will rest in You,
I will rest in You.

Oh, la la la la la
I will rest in You.
(I) I will rest in You. (in You)
I will rest in You. (Sweet caresses)
I will rest in You.
I will rest in You.
(So take me back to You)
I will rest in You (I, I)
I will rest in You

 

3) Breathe - Michael W. Smith [ Song List | Top ]

Album: Worship [Amazon Lookup]

This is the air I breathe
This is the air I breathe
Your Holy presence living in me.

This is my daily bread
This is my daily bread
Your very Word spoken to me

And I, I'm desprate for you
And I, I'm lost without you

 

4) Fallen - Sarah McLachlan [ Song List | Top ]

Album: Afterglow [Amazon Lookup]

Heaven bent to take my hand
And lead me through the fire
Be the long awaited answer
To a long and painful fight

Truth be told I've tried my best
But somewhere along the way
I got caught up in all there was to offer
And the cost was so much more than I could bear

Though I've tried, I've fallen
I have sunk so low
I have messed up
Better I should know
So don't come round here
And tell me I told you so

We all begin with good intent
Love was raw and young
We believed that we could change ourselves
The past can be undone
But we carry on our backs the burden
Time always reveals
In the lonely light of morning
In the wound that would not heal
It's the bitter taste of losing everything
That I have held so dear

I've fallen
I have sunk so low
I have messed up
Better I should know
So don't come round here
And tell me I told you so, [no..]

Heaven bent to take my hand
I have nowhere left to turn
I've lost to those I thought were friends
To everyone I know
Oh they turned their heads embarrassed
Pretend that they don't see
But it's one missed step
You'll slip before you know it
And there doesn't seem a way to be redeemed

Though I've tried, I've fallen
I have sunk so low
I have messed up
Better I should know
So don't come round here
And tell me I told you so, [no..]
I've messed up
Better I should know
Don't come round here
And tell me I told you so.

 

5) Angel - Sarah McLachlan [ Song List | Top ]

Album: Mirrorball [Amazon Lookup]

Spend all your time waiting
for that second chance
for a break that would make it okay
there's always some reason
to feel not good enough
and it's hard at the end of the day
I need some distraction
oh beautiful release
memories seep from my veins
let me be empty
oh and weightless then maybe
I'll find some peace tonight

In the arms of the angel
fly away from here
from this dark cold hotel room
and the endlessness that you feel
you are pulled from the wreckage
of your silent reverie
you're in the arms of the angel
may you find some comfort here

So tired of the straight line
and everywhere you turn
there's vultures and thieves at your back
the storm keeps on twisting
you keep on building the lies
that you make up for all that you lack
it don't make no difference
escaping one last time
it's easier to believe
in this sweet madness oh
this glorious sadness that brings me to my knees

In the arms of the angel
fly away from here
from this dark cold hotel room
and the endlessness that you feel
you are pulled from the wreckage
of your silent reverie
you're in the arms of the angel
may you find some comfort here
you're in the arms of the angel
may you find some comfort here

 

6) Remember Me - Mark Schultz [ Song List | Top ]

Album: Mark Schultz [Amazon Lookup]

Remember me
In a Bible cracked and faded by the years
Remember me
In a sanctuary filled with silent prayer

And age to age
And heart to heart
Bound by grace and peace
Child of wonder
Child of God
I've remembered you
Remember me

Remember me
When the color of a sunset fills the sky
Remember me
When you pray and tears of joy
fall from your eye

And age to age
And heart to heart
Bound by grace and peace
Child of wonder
Child of God
I've remembered you
Remember me

Remember me
When the children leave
their Sunday school with smiles
Remember me
When they're old enough to teach
Old enough to preach
Old enough to leave

And age to age
And heart to heart
Bound by grace and peace
Child of wonder
Child of God
I've remembered you
Remember me

Age to age and heart to heart
Child of wonder child of God
Remember me
Age to age and heart to heart
Child of wonder child of God

 

7) Everywhere - Michelle Branch [ Song List | Top ]

Album: The Spirit Room [Amazon Lookup]

Turn it inside out so I can see
The part of you that's drifting over me
And when I wake you're, you're never there
But when I sleep you're, you're everywhere
You're everywhere

Just tell me how I got this far
Just tell me why you're here and who you are
'Cause every time I look
You're never there
And every time I sleep
You're always there

'Cause you're everywhere to me
And when I close my eyes it's you I see
You're everything I know
That makes me believe
I'm not alone
I'm not alone

I recognize the way you make me feel
It's hard to think that
You might not be real
I sense it now, the water's getting deep
I try to wash the pain away from me
Away from me

'Cause you're everywhere to me
And when I close my eyes it's you I see
You're everything I know
That makes me believe
I'm not alone
I'm not alone

I am not alone
Whoa, oh, oooh, oh

And when I touch your hand
It's then I understand
The beauty that's within
It's now that we begin
You always light my way
I hope there never comes a day
No matter where I go
I always feel you so

'Cause you're everywhere to me
And when I close my eyes it's you I see
You're everything I know
That makes me believe
I'm not alone
'Cause you're everywhere to me
And when I catch my breath
It's you I breathe
You're everything I know
That makes me believe
I'm not alone

You're in everyone I see
So tell me
Do you see me?

 

8) (There's Gotta Be) More to Life - Stacie Orrico [ Song List | Top ]

Album: Stacie Orrico [Amazon Lookup]

I've got it all, but I feel so deprived
I go up, I come down and I'm emptier inside
Tell me what is this thing that I feel like I'm missing
And why can't I let it go

CHORUS:
There's gotta be more to life...
Than chasing down every temporary high to satisfy me
Cause the more that I'm...
Trippin' out thinkin' there must be more to life
Well it's life, but I'm sure... There's gotta be more

(Than wanting more)

I've got the time and I'm wasting it slowly
Here in this moment I'm half-way out the door
Onto the next thing, I'm searching for something that's missing

CHORUS

I'm wanting more

I'm always waiting on something other than this
Why am I feelin' like there's something I missed....
Always... Always...

CHORUS - repeat twice

More to life
There's gotta be more to life (more to life)
There's gotta be more to life (more)
More to my life

 

9) Where Is the Love? - Black Eyed Peas [ Song List | Top ]

Album: Elephunk [Amazon Lookup]

What’s wrong with the world, mama
People livin’ like they ain’t got no mamas
I think the whole world addicted to the drama
Only attracted to things that’ll bring you trauma
Overseas, yeah, we tryin' to stop terrorism
But we still got terrorists here livin’
In the USA, the big CIA
The Bloods and The Crips and the KKK
But if you only have love for your own race
Then you only leave space to discriminate
And to discriminate only generates hate
And when you hate then you’re bound to get irate, yeah
Badness is what you demonstrate
And that’s exactly how anger works and operates
Man, you gotta have love just to set it straight
Take control of your mind and meditate
Let your soul gravitate to the love, y’all, y’all

People killin’, people dyin’
Children hurt and you hear them cryin’
Can you practice what you preach
And would you turn the other cheek

Father, Father, Father help us
Send us some guidance from above
‘Cause people got me, got me questionin’
Where is the love (Love)

Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love
The love, the love

It just ain’t the same, always unchanged
New days are strange, is the world insane
If love and peace is so strong
Why are there pieces of love that don’t belong
Nations droppin’ bombs
Chemical gasses fillin’ lungs of little ones
With the ongoin’ sufferin’ as the youth die young
So ask yourself is the lovin’ really gone
So I can ask myself really what is goin’ wrong
In this world that we livin’ in people keep on givin’ in
Makin’ wrong decisions, only visions of them dividends
Not respectin’ each other, deny thy brother
A war is goin’ on but the reason’s undercover
The truth is kept secret, it’s swept under the rug
If you never know truth then you never know love
Where’s the love, y’all, come on (I don’t know)
Where’s the truth, y’all, come on (I don’t know)
Where’s the love, y’all

People killin’, people dyin’
Children hurt and you hear them cryin’
Can you practice what you preach
And would you turn the other cheek

Father, Father, Father help us
Send us some guidance from above
‘Cause people got me, got me questionin’
Where is the love (Love)

Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love
The love, the love

I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder
As I’m gettin’ older, y’all, people gets colder
Most of us only care about money makin’
Selfishness got us followin’ the wrong direction
Wrong information always shown by the media
Negative images is the main criteria
Infecting the young minds faster than bacteria
Kids wanna act like what they see in the cinemas
Yo’, whatever happened to the values of humanity
Whatever happened to the fairness in equality
Instead in spreading love we spreading animosity
Lack of understanding, leading lives away from unity
That’s the reason why sometimes I’m feelin’ under
That’s the reason why sometimes I’m feelin’ down
There’s no wonder why sometimes I’m feelin’ under
Gotta keep my faith alive til love is found

Now ask yourself
Where is the love
Where is the love
Where is the love
Where is the love

Father, Father, Father help us
Send us some guidance from above
‘Cause people got me, got me questionin’
Where is the love

Sing with me y'all
One World, One World
We only got
One World, One World
That's all we got
One World, One World
And somethin's wrong with it, [yeah] somethin's wrong with it [yeah]
Somethin's wrong with the w w world
Yeah, we only got
One World, One World
That's all we got
One World, One World

 

10) Love One Another - Cher [ Song List | Top ]

Album: Living Proof [Amazon Lookup]


Everybody needs a little tenderness
Everybody needs a release
From the cell they lock themselves in
Love's the only peace

Everybody needs
Everybody Cries
Everybody Bleeds
Everybody Dies
Everybody Dreams
Everybody Wakes
Everybody makes mistakes

Love one another
Sisters and brothers
Love one another

Love one another
Father and mother
Love one another

It's easier to walk away when you've
Got a wounded pride
But when two people stand together
That's how they heal inside
Try to understand
Open up your heart
A fist is just a hand
It can come apart
Let go of the past, let go of the fight
Forgiving fills the world with light

Love one another
Sisters and brothers
Love one another

Love one another
Father and mother
Love one another

We were given a world so beautiful
A deep ocean, a blue-blue sky
I know we can make it a better place
If only you and I

Love one another
Sisters and brothers
Love one another

Love one another
Father and mother
Love one another

Love one another
Sisters and brothers
Love one another

Love one another
Father and mother
Love one another
Love one another

Album: The Lizzy McGuire Movie (Soundtrack) [Amazon Lookup]

(Paolo) Have you ever seen such a beautiful night

12) Beautiful - Sarah Brightman [ Song List | Top ]

Album: Harem [Amazon Lookup]

If you can depend
On certainty
Count it out and weigh it up again
You can be sure
You've reached the end
And still you don't feel

Do you know you're beautiful
Do you know you're beautiful
Do you know you're beautiful
You are, yes you are, yes you are

If you can ignore
What you've become
Take it out and see it die again
You can be here
So who's a friend
And still you don't feel

Do you know you're beautiful
Do you know you're beautiful
Do you know you're beautiful
You are, yes you are, yes you are

Yes you are

Innermost thoughts
Will be understood
And you can have all you need

Do you know (do you know about anything)
Do you know (do you know about anyone)
Do you know you're beautiful
Do you know you're beautiful
Do you know you're beautiful
You are, yes you are, yes you are

Do you know you're beautiful
Do you know you're beautiful
Do you know you're beautiful
You are, yes you are, yes you are

Yes, you are

 

13) One & One - Robert Miles, Maria Nayler [ Song List | Top ]

Album: Dreamland [Amazon Lookup]

The sky isn't always blue
The sun doesn't always shine
It's alright to fall apart sometimes,
mmm
I am not always you
And you are not always mine
It's alright to fall apart sometimes
Chorus:
After all is said and done
One and one still is one
When we cry, when we laugh
I am half, you are half
The heart isn't always true
And I am not always fine
We all have an angry heart sometimes
(Repeat Chorus)
Look how far we have come
One and one still is
One moon (one moon)
One star (one star)
I love the one we are
One thread (one thread)
One line (one line)
Let's stand still in time
One moon (one moon)
One star (one star)
I love the one we are
One thread (one thread)
One line (one line)
That runs through our lives
(Repeat Chorus)
Look how far we have come
One and one still is one ah
Oo

Album: Harem [Amazon Lookup]

We saw the holy men
Come in from Sanchi
We touched their souls

Album: Becstasy [Amazon Lookup]

When the night falls down,
I wait for you, and you come around.
And the world's alive,
With the sound of kids on the street outside.
When you walk into the room,
You pull me close and we start to move,
And we're spinning with the stars above,
And you lift me up in a wave of love.

Oohh baby do you know what that's worth?
Oohh, heaven is a place on earth.
The say in heaven, love comes first.
We'll make heaven a place on earth.
Oohh, heaven is a place on earth...

When I feel alone,
I reach or you and you bring me home,
When I'm lost at sea,
I hear your voice, and it carries me.
In this world we're just beginning,
To understand the miracle of living,
Baby I was afraid before,
I'm not afraid, anymore...

Oohh baby do you know what that's worth?
Oohh, heaven is a place on earth.

In this world we're just beginning,
To understand the miracle of living,

Oohh, heaven is a place on earth.
The say in heaven, love comes first.
We'll make heaven a place on earth.

Right now.
In heaven.
We're in heaven.
