U2-Where the Streets Have No Name  (click to listen)

I want to run
I want to hide
I want to tear down the walls
That hold me inside
I wanna reach out
And touch the flame
Where the streets have no name

I want to feel, sunlight on my face
I see that dust cloud disappear without a trace
I wanna take shelter from the poison rain

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name

We’re still building
Then burning down love, burning down love
And when I go there
I go there with you
It’s all I can do

The cities a flood
And our love turns to rust
We’re beaten and blown by the wind
Trampled into dust

I’ll show you a place
High on the desert plain

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name

Still building
Then burning down love
Burning down love

And when I go there
I go there with you
It’s all I can do

Our love turns to rust
We’re beaten and blown by the wind
Blown by the wind
Oh and I see love
See our love turn to rust
We’re beaten and blown by the wind
Blown by the wind
Oh when I go there
I go there with you
It’s all I can do

U2- A Sort of Homecoming (click to listen)

And you know it’s time to go
Through the sleet and driving snow
Across the fields of mourning
Light in the distance

And you hunger for the time
Time to heal, desire, time
And your earth moves beneath
Your own dream landscape

Oh, oh, oh
On borderland we run

I’ll be there
I’ll be there
A high road
A high road out from here

The city walls are all come down
The dust, a smoke screen all around
See faces ploughed like fields that once
Gave no resistance

And we live by the side of the road
On the side of a hill
As the valley explode
Dislocated, suffocated
The land grows weary of its own

Oh come away, oh come away, oh come away, I say I
Oh come away, come away, oh come, oh come away, I say I

Oh, oh, oh
on borderland we run
And still we run
We run and don’t look back
I’ll be there
I’ll be there

I’ll be there tonight, I believe
I’ll be there so high
I’ll be there tonight, tonight

Oh come away, I say, I say oh
Oh come away, I say

The wind will crack in winter time
This bomb-blast lightning waltz
No spoken words, just a scream

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Tonight we’ll build a bridge
Across the sea and land
See the sky, the burning rain
She will die and live again

And your heart beats so slow
Through the rain and fallen snow
Across the fields of mourning
Light’s in the distance

Oh don’t sorrow, no don’t weep
For tonight, at last
I am coming home
I am coming home

  30. Donna Leggett :

    Cesar and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Jeanine was a wonderful person and I know God must have needed her or he would not have taken her. We don’t always understand why things happen but God never gives us more than we can handle. When we put our faith and trust in Him, we will never walk alone.

    Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all of them that believe: for there is no difference. For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. Romans 3:22-24

  31. Marlene Gorman :
