Lyrics:

The broken clock is a comfort, it helps me sleep tonight
Maybe it can stop tomorrow from stealing all my time
I am here still waiting though I still have my doubts
I am damaged at best, like you’ve already figured out

Chorus:
I’m falling apart, I’m barely breathing
With a broken heart that’s still beating
In the pain there is healing
In your name I find meaning
So I’m holdin’ on, I’m holdin’ on, I’m holdin’ on
I’m barely holdin’ on to you

The broken locks were a warning you got inside my head
I tried my best to be guarded, I’m an open book instead
I still see your reflection inside of my eyes
That are looking for a purpose, they’re still looking for life
(Repeat Chorus)
I’m hangin’ on another day
Just to see what you will throw my way
And I’m hanging on to the words you say
You said that I will be OK

The broken lights on the freeway left me here alone
I may have lost my way now, haven’t forgotten my way home

(Repeat Chorus)


The Man Who Can’t Be Moved (the Script)

A simple instrumental rendition of The Script’s “The Man Who Can’t Be Moved”. I hope you enjoy this cover. If you do, please share it with your friends!
For downloads, please message me here or send me an email at activeguitarist@gmail.com =)

LYRICS:
Going back to the corner where I first saw you
Gonna camp in my sleeping bag I’m not gonna move
Got some words on cardboard, got your picture in my hand
Saying, “If you see this girl can you tell her where I am?”

Some try to hand me money, they don’t understand
I’m not broke – I’m just a broken-hearted man
I know it makes no sense but what else can I do?
How can I move on when I’m still in love with you?

[Chorus:]
‘Cause if one day you wake up and find that you’re missing me
And your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I could be
Thinking maybe you’ll come back here to the place that we’d meet
And you’ll see me waiting for you on the corner of the street

So I’m not moving, I’m not moving

Policeman says, “Son, you can’t stay here.”
I said, “There’s someone I’m waiting for if it’s a day, a month, a year.
Gotta stand my ground even if it rains or snows.
If she changes her mind this is the first place she will go.”
[Chorus:]

People talk about the guy that’s waiting on a girl, oh ohh
There are no holes in his shoes but a big hole in his world, hmm

And maybe I’ll get famous as the man who can’t be moved
Maybe you won’t mean to but you’ll see me on the news
And you’ll come running to the corner
‘Cause you’ll know it’s just for you
I’m the man who can’t be moved
I’m the man who can’t be moved

[Chorus:]

[Chorus:]
‘Cause if one day you wake up and find that you’re missing me
(So I’m not moving)
And your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I could be
(I’m not moving)
Thinking maybe you’ll come back here to the place that we’d meet
(I’m not moving)
And you’ll see me waiting for you on the corner of the street
(I’m not moving)

Going back to the corner where I first saw you
Gonna camp in my sleeping bag, I’m not gonna move

Kahit Maputi Na Ang Buhok Ko (guitar Cover)

Guitar cover of Noel Cabangon’s “Kahit Maputi na ang Buhok Ko”. Enjoy!
Please like and comment if you like this song. =)
Lyrics:
Kung tayo ay matanda na
Sana’y di tayo magbago
Kailan man nasaan ma’y
Ito ang pangarap ko
Makuha mo pa kayang
Ako’y hagkan at yakapin ooooooh
Hanggang sa pagtanda natin
Nagtatanong lang sa ‘yo
Ako pa kaya’y ibigin mo
Kung maputi na ang buhok ko

Pagdating ng araw
Ang ‘yong buhok
Ay puputi na rin
Sabay tayong mangangarap
Nang nakaraan sa ‘tin

Ang nakalipas ay ibabalik natin ooooooh
Ipapaalala ko sa ‘yo
Ang aking pangako
Na ang pag-ibig ko’y laging sa ‘yo
Kahit maputi na ang buhok ko

Ang nakalipas ay ibabalik natin hmmmmmm
Ipapaalala ko sa ‘yo
Ang aking pangako
Na ang pag-ibig ko’y laging sa ‘yo
Kahit maputi na ang buhok ko
Kahit maputi na ang buhok ko

Let Them Fade – Instrumental (Original Composition)

New instrumental based on a song I wrote a few years ago. Hope you enjoy it!

Philippians 3:13 “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, FORGETTING THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE BEHIND, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,”

Hebrews 12:1 “Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, LET US LAY ASIDE EVERY WEIGHT, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,”

LYRICS:
There are many things that are of no value
Yet they remain to clutter up your life
Build a bonfire don’t delay – burn the things that aren’t okay
And then watch them fade away, watch them fade away

>Because you must let go of them – you must learn to let go
Of all the things that pull you back from moving on

Chorus: Watch their light grow darker, let them fade away
Turn your back on anything that’s gone
Your life will be brighter, as you embrace the future
All the while never turning back, let them fade

Throw your pride away – it has never helped you
Learn from your mistakes, and the faults of others
Love and your love will return, hate and hatred you will earn
Be a friend on which all can, on which all can rely

>And when you’ve learned to let go of
The things that hold you back
You’ll find yourself sprinting toward the finish line

Bridge: Your life will be brighter
As their light grows darker
Your life will be brighter
As their light grows darker


Who Am I – Casting Crowns (guitar cover)

An instrumental guitar cover of Casting Crowns’ “Who Am I” which is in their debut album “Casting Crowns”. Great song to teach us that salvation is given to us freely, “not because of what I’ve done”, but because of who God is. Thanks for listening!

LYRICS:
Who am I, that the Lord of all the earth
Would care to know my name
Would care to feel my hurt
Who am I, that the Bright and Morning Star
Would choose to light the way
For my ever wandering heart

Not because of who I am
But because of what You’ve done
Not because of what I’ve done
But because of who You are

Chorus:
I am a flower quickly fading
Here today and gone tomorrow
A wave tossed in the ocean
A vapor in the wind
Still You hear me when I’m calling
Lord, You catch me when I’m falling
And You’ve told me who I am
I am Yours, I am Yours

Who am I, that the eyes that see my sin
Would look on me with love and watch me rise again
Who am I, that the voice that calmed the sea
Would call out through the rain
And calm the storm in me

Whom shall I fear
‘Cause I am Yours
I am Yours


Great Is Thy Faithfulness (guitar instrumental)

An instrumental rendition of the timeless song, “Great is thy Faithfulness”. May each one of us find that God is faithful even when we miss the mark. It is God who paved the way of salvation freely for us, through his faithful love and unending kindness.

LYRICS:
Great is Thy faithfulness O God my Father
There is no shadow of turning with Thee
Thou changest not Thy compassions they fail not
As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be

Refrain:
Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided
Great is Thy faithfulness Lord unto me

Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness mercy and love

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow
Blessings all mine with ten thousand beside
