TFT: Bread

Link: [Bread]

Not every song that will be featured here will be what is generally considered as being “Christian” in the eyes of this world.  For some will be anguished cries from the pit of despair while others will be quite obviously fervent rants of rebellion.  Nonetheless, be assured that they will all be of our Heavenly Father (in one way or another) and I hope that you have been given ears to hear the message.

If a picture paints a thousand words
Then why can't I paint you
The words will never show
The you I've come to know
If a face could launch a thousand ships
Then where am I to go
There's no one home but you
You're all that's left me too

And when
My love for life is running dry
You come
And pour
On me

If a man could be two places at one time
I'd be with you
Tomorrow and today
Beside you all the way
If the world should stop revolving
Spinning slowly down to die
I'd spend the end with you
And when the world was through

Then one
By one
The stars would all go out
Then you and I
Would simply
Fly away

Mother Freedom
Keep walkin'
Keep on your toes
And don't stop talkin' 'bout
Get goin'
Lots to be learned
And lots to be knowin' 'bout
Gotta reach 'em
Sit 'em right down
And then you gotta teach 'em 'bout
Gotta win it
Gotta put yourself smack dab in it

Now don't you go away
Just might come your way

Keep tryin'
People stay alive
And people keep dyin' for
So don't lose it
You gotta understand
You just can't abuse it
Get movin'
Never gonna stop
‘Til everybody's groovin' on
Love for
One another
Callin' some friend
And callin' some brother

You're not so far away
We'll know you well someday

  1. Excellent, i loved Bread, great songs and great lyrics. Reminds me of Cheesecloth shirts, flared trousers and cassettes. Those were the day when you copied your mates records onto cassette and you taped the top 20 on the radio.

  2. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Alan!!! "Mother Freedom" reminds me of just how tolerant my rather hardcore dad could be at times. For I would play my 45 of that song over and over and over and over and over (I think you might get the situation by now) again on his beloved Magnavox cabinet console stereo AM/FM radio/record player, which was located fairly close to his chair in the living room. of our not all that big home.

  3. There just aren't bands/groups around like Bread etc., these days...and the loss is ours.

  4. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Lee!!! No, there most certainly are not, and it is to our loss.

  5. I have always been very fond of that first song

  6. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Ann!!! It all depended upon how secure I was in a relationship at the time for me.
