"BURNING DREAM"

Well, You know I've thought of walking,
And You know I felt like there's no hope,
And You know I caught the bug of balking
As I move along towards the hangman's rope.

Repeat Verse 1

Chorus 1
But I've still got a dream,
And it's burning, burning,
And I've still gotta feel it
Turning, turning.

Refrain
Jesus, can You come and straighten out the gum that is my life?
Jesus, can You come and straighten out the gum that is my life?

Intro: ---- Repeat two times

Verse 2
Well, You know I've thought of screaming,
Throwing back my head and crying Your name.
And You know I've caught myself believing
That yielding to You is the only way.

Repeat Chorus 1

Repeat Refrain

Lead break: ---- Repeat

Verse 2
Well, You know I've thought a lot of thoughts,
And of thinking thoughts there is no end,
But now I've got Your steady voice,
And it's leading me back to the beginning again.

Chorus 2
Yeah, now I've gotta dream,
And it's Burning, burning.
Icanfeel it
Turning, turning.

Jesus, yeah, You've come and straightened out the gum, and gave new life.
Jesus, yeah, You've come and straightened out the gum, and gave new life.

You came and made some sense out of my life
