Surrender to Your Arms singer Maia Kuze with Rick Maltese on piano cover art by Karl Schantz My lonely spirit Needs you to guide me To stand beside me But I still fear you. Will I surrender to your arms? My heart has weakened My heart has wandered My constant longing Please come and save me. I will surrender to your arms. When I let down my guard will you be there? These are the thoughts I’m saying in a prayer. Will my faith completely save my soul? Is there room for you inside my world? You are eternal. I’m only mortal. Will I learn all your ways? The gifts you’ve shown me There’s so much beauty It might just heal me To surrender to your arms. credits: released 01 August 2012 Words and Music by Rick Maltese © 2011 Sung by Maia Kuze Piano by Rick Maltese
Dear God is something I put together about 2000.
It would be great if it were done for electric guitar and orchestra.
Lessons Learned words and music by Rick Maltese © 2011 There's so much more to life than living lives apart. We all are blessed with what it takes. How do we start? To find the path to make it work, open your heart. Open your heart and once again, Open your heart these are the Lessons Learned. When justice will not show it's face, open the door. The waves don't stop when they have found their way to shore. Just pray once more and once again, just pray once more. Just pray once more, and pray again. Just pray once more. These are the lessons learned What seems like just an ember fading in the dark. In time the light will shine so bright, a fixed mark. If over time the light should fade, just save a spark Just save a spark, and once again, Just save a spark these are the lessons learned.
