LIFESONG – Das Leben schreibt die besten Lieder.


Zehn Songs aus voller Seele. Dazu Judys Geschichte durch Höhenflüge und Krisen. – Alle Songs sind in englisch; im Booklet sind alle Lieder auch auf deutsch übersetzt. Die Lesungen sind in deutscher Sprache.

„’Lifesong‘ ist eine sehr intime, warme Platte geworden. Patrick Depuhl liest mit angenehmer, samtweicher Stimme. Die Abschnitte münden stets in darauf abgestimmte Songs, die allesamt von Judy Bailey komponiert und getextet worden sind. Nie zuvor klang die Stimme der Sängerin so intensiv, was nicht nur an der Qualität der sehr persönlichen, originellen Songs liegt. Es liegt auch an der sehr sparsamen Instrumentierung. – Wer ‚Lifesong‘ in den CD-Player schiebt, hat den Eindruck, Judy Bailey und Patrick Depuhl sitzen als Gäste mit im Wohnzimmer. Atmosphärisch dichter kann man ein Album nicht gestalten.“ – Rheinische Post


Remember the feelings would rise
When I’d look in Your eyes
Your love and my infatuation
Slowly the meaning it grew
And still when You draw me to You
It fills me with endless fascination
All I need I have found in You
Lord, You lead me and everywhere You go I’ll be there

Shine out Your light to guide my heart
I’ll follow Your star
I want to be right there where You are
I will go though the road is long and hard
No matter how far
I want to be right there where You are

And all through the joy and the pain
And times when I want my own way
I know that You are always near me
It isn’t the things that I do
Or even the strength of what I feel for You
As much as how You love me
Smile on me, it makes it easier
You will see my desire is to do Your will, so

And as I lay me down to sleep
I’m asking You my soul to keep
Keep me safe through the night
I want to see You in the morning light
And if I die before I wake
I’m asking You to take my soul away
Cause I only want to be where You are

Well, it’s interesting –
cause of all the people I’ve read about, met or seen
It’s my mother who’s my hero –
She really impressed me the most 

There was no big advice, she didn’t testify
But it’s her life’s lessons I learned
The way she lived spoke volumes to me
Though she didn’t even say word

She said run baby run, run, run, run with it
But don’t run away
It’s heavy sometimes but you’ll be fine yeah
She gave a lot to me

She faced each day with courage and boy
I know some times were rough
But isn’t it amazing what a little determination does
You can take the highs and the lows
As long as you’re living it wise
No gain in complaining
Just live this crazy life

Oh, nothing is stronger than what’s inside
No, nothing should make you give up on life
Don’t let anything destroy your will to breathe
Through everything believe

This God-fearing mother of mine
Had lived long enough to see
Though there is grace and open skies
Faith is never totally doubt-free
She may never know the gift
The power she gave me on my way
Her wisdom unspoken still speaking to my life today

Who can settle upon the holy hill of the Lord
And live confidently inside His sanctuary
All who walk without blame
Lift their heads without shame
Who’re righteous in their ways
And do what God says
They’re gonna be steady

He who does
She who does these things
Will never be rocked
And never be shaken
He who loves
She who loves these things
Will never be rocked
And never be shaken

Those who’re taming their tongue
Who don’t pull others down
Who speak truth from the heart
And do right by their neighbour
Who keep their vow though it hurts
Who honour those who respect the Word
Who hate what is wrong and love what is true
God is their refuge

In the very familiar castle of my skin
There’s a war going on and I know who will win
Still it is not easy, I get doubting sometimes
When the bombs go off and the bullets fly

There are thieves in the temple and they’re looking for gold
Desecrating the altar, got their eyes on my soul
Can be intimidating on the shadowy side
Still the struggle is worth the trouble I find

Always will I watch and ever will I be
Standing on the Rock,
Looking out, looking in
Seeking ’til I find and searching ’til I see
The angel that knows the devil in me

Additional verse:
There are a myriad of motives when my heart is exposed
Passions oh so sneaky, got to stay on my toes
It’s a challenge I tell ya, give me strength for the fight
When my faith moves up to the firing line

Clouds of dust in the ruins, smoke is thick in my eyes
See it rising like incense on the wings of the night
But the war ain’t over though the battle is done
Keep me on my guard ’til the kingdom comes

I know the time has come
Gonna be moving on
I‘ve been hanging round here so long
Just singing the same old song

All the stories that have been told
Well there’re all just getting old
So am I, so I must go
Before apathy kills my soul

And I’m moving on
Moving on
Moving onward whatever comes
Letting go, and travelling on
Thankful and free

I know the time has come
Gonna be moving on
Feel my heart go rum pum pum
Ride the rhythm and move along

Gonna leave the past behind
Seek another state of mind
Won’t waste energy hanging on
There’s a future to be won

I know the time has come
Gonna be moving on
By the power of God in me
I will reach my destiny

Prize the lessons that I’ve learned
Love the grace that I’ve not earned
And In the Spirit I arise
I’m now awake, aware, alive

Music & Lyrics: Judy Bailey

There are days you don’t know where you’re going to
That’s why I took the time to write this song for you
When there’s pain crowding in to claim your heart
I pray you’ll always know the miracle you are

You are loved, You are loved, You are loved
You are precious, You are wanted, You are loved

And when the world seems to be a crazy place
And darkness tries to steal the light from your face
May your gaze lead you to the sky above
Remember there is truth that you can lean upon

You are loved, You are loved, You are loved
You are precious, You are wanted, You are loved

So keep these words hidden in your heart for then
And hold on to the One, you can be sure He made you well
Then let go and let His will be your embrace
The universe is God’s and you have got your place

You are loved, You are loved, You are loved
You are precious, You are wanted, You are loved

It’s amazing just to know
Everyday, everywhere I am not alone
When I’m out there on the street
You be there, always there to keep me company

In the countryside, in the city
In the club, in the church, university
In the crowds and running solo
Like the sound coming from my stereo

Surrounded, surrounded, Oh
Surrounded, surrounded
Thousand angels praying watching o’er me

Panning out still in the zone
All the world from Barbados to the Congo
To the outcast, sick and weak
To the child on the shoulders of a desperate
mother running running refugee

It’s omnipotence on the scene
In my reality power unseen
They come, they carry me right on time
Alone is not alone when you’ve got heaven on the frontline

Feel the tension coming on slow
Fifth dimension come into play
It’s protection and direction
So divine this intervention

The Omniscient knows the plot
The invisible take their spot
Heavenly hosts stand strong united
Waiting, watching, praying, fighting

Watching over you watching over me,
Watching over you now you now

Here’s the fated hour
This unwelcomed time
Where there’s no pretending
Where we draw a line
Facing a truth that from now on
Defines your life’s journey … and mine

One last look for the moment
I already miss your grace
I see your physical features
But it’s an empty face
If ever I wondered now I know for sure
That you are in a better place

It weighs my heart, fills my head
Trust me – This is taking so much more
Than I could ever imagine
It rips me up, breaks me down – I’m torn apart
But I’m holding to the faith we share
And I am still believing

Life goes on

When this goodbye’s over
How do I go home
Ladened with my memories
And a heart like stone
I need the Lord to carry me
God knows I won’t make it on my own

It weighs my heart, fills my head
Truly this is so much harder
Than I could have ever imagined
Why’re you looking for me here,
At what remains, you seem to say
It’s almost like you’re standing next to me
Whispering to me that

Life goes on

Music & Lyrics: Judy Bailey

There is nothing in your life I haven’t seen
Nowhere in your crazy world I haven’t been
All those times you thought that you were on your own
I’ve been right with you, you’ve never been alone

When your worries want to rob you of your sleep
I will cover you, I promise you I’ll be
Walking with you every step of the way
I’m your friend, your God, so do not be afraid

I am with you

When the winds around you rage and rock your boat
I’ll be sailing with you keeping you afloat
I will make a way for you across the miles
Don’t give up, keep going knowing all the while

I am with you

I know your name, I feel your pain
I won’t leave, I’ll stay, You’ll be OK
Through the waters
Through the fire
You won’t drown, you won’t burn,
I’ll take you higher
Seen your tears, heard your prayers
You can trust me with them
You may bend but you won’t break
You will make it in the end

Thank You Heavenly Father for Your love for me.
I’m forever grateful that You sacrificed Your Son.
You saved my soul and changed my destiny.
Thank You God for Jesus in me.

I’m so glad that Jesus lives in my house.
Good to know that He is here with me now.
All of my life Jesus in me, Jesus in my house.
All of my life and always will be.

Thank You for the purpose You have placed in me.
Thank You for forgiveness
And the chance to start again.
I face the future knowing I will be
Safe and sound with Jesus in me.
