“To The Dreamers” Lyrics

We’re beat up but won’t be broken
Lonesome but always searching
Homesick but nobody’s heading home soon
Keep on, keeping on, keeping on

Long days and too many short nights
And wrong ways that almost felt right
Lovesick but nobody’s holding you
Keep on, keeping on, keeping on
So sing along, sing along, sing along… Yeah

[Chorus:]
To the dreamers
Wide-eyed believers
Hanging onto hope by a thread
To the soulful
Heart open hopeful
Keep on charging ahead
‘Cause, when you feel it, once you see it, and you breathe it
It’s unforgettable
When you know it, once you know it, and you hold it
It’s unforgettable

God knows you question your courage
And some days I can’t walk for stumbling
If we could only see what we’re becoming

Keep on, keeping on, keeping on
So sing along, sing along, sing along… Yeah

Inspiration & Music Pick: Marry Me (Wedding Song) by Amy Noelck created for THE Surprise Wedding

Recently I got to meet Amy Noelck, a passionate singer/songwriter with a vision for impacting the world and am inspired by her heart for serving others and vibrant energy. Amy wrote “Marry Me,” a moving anthem of love and the perfect wedding song (from her new album Amy Noelck EP) created for “The Surprise Wedding” of Ryan & Amanda Leak that you may have seen featured on the news and social media in the past few months.

On June 7, 2013, Ryan Leak proposed to his girlfriend. Her dream was to get engaged and married on the same day, and so later on that night he cleverly delivered her surprise dream wedding after planning it for weeks with inspiration from Amanda’s wedding board on Pinterest.

I got to hear Ryan share the story behind the proposal at church a few months back and this music video/documentary shows a little bit of their story. To see the entire documentary of The Surprise Wedding, you can watch below:

Giving Back: Help Amy and the Leaks Fight Against Human Trafficking Through the A21 Campaign

Instead of receiving wedding gifts, “The Surprise Wedding” couple asked all of their wedding guests to give to the A21 Campaign (thea21campaign.org), an organization fighting against human trafficking all over the globe. Amy was so inspired by this that she started raising awareness for the cause herself.

“I try to write music with lyrics that reveal the transparency of life. I love God, and I love people. I write about brokenness so those that are hurting and longing for something to fulfill them, will see that they are not alone.

We are constantly searching for something that will give us peace and joy through the struggles of this life, but, I am confident that lasting peace and joy cannot be found in anything—unless first found in Jesus. It is my hope and prayer that not only my songs & lyrics would represent God’s character, but also every aspect of my life.” – Amy

Oceans Acoustic Session

Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)

You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will stand

And I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Your grace abounds in deepest waters
Your sovereign hand
Will be my guide
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me
You’ve never failed and You won’t start now

So I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior

I will call upon Your Name
Keep my eyes above the waves
My soul will rest in Your embrace
I am Yours and You are mine

Music Video Pick & Inspiration: Heart Beats, Make and Don’t Let it Get You Down from JOHNNYSWIM


“I’m born to go where they tell me it’s impossible, fan the flame and walk on the water – I’ve got Heaven locked up in these bones…” – JOHNNYSWIM

JOHNNYSWIM is a soul-folk-pop duo composed of Amanda Sudano and Abner Ramirez, who create moving experiences through their unique passion-infused sound and poetic lyrical artistry that delves deep into the soul (think Lauryn Hill meets John Mayer as one Nashville newspaper put it) – if you haven’t heard of them yet you’re missing out!

“Heart Beats” is from their new EP of the same title which features more of my favorites including the inspiring “Make” and “Don’t Let It Get You Down,” which you can listen to below in live performances. Be sure to sample and get the EP at their site johnnyswim.com.
