  1. One More Song

From the recording One More Song

One night I had a dream that I had just performed a concert and it went really well. I was quite satisfied with myself. I walked out on the stage/sanctuary to pick up my guitar (I am my own roadie, even in my dreams) and I was startled to hear a voice from the shadows in the back, requesting me to play one more song. The man went on to explain that he did not believe in Jesus but heard the music as he was passing by so he stopped in to give a listen. He went on to say that as he listened to each song, he found himself coming closer and closer to believing in Jesus. He felt that he was just one song away from accepting Jesus into his heart and life and that if I sang just one more "Jesus song", he would come to believe. I remember in this dream looking at this man and telling him that I had sung all the songs I knew... that there were no more songs. With that, the man shrugged his shoulders and slowly walked back out into the darkness of the night. Suddenly I wasn't feeling very satisfied with myself. Well, pretty much immediately I woke up from this dream. It was about 3am and my guitar was near my bed. In the darkness I sat on my bed and wrote this song. It is the song I use most often at the end of a concert. I will sing until I am blue in the face if it means someone might come to believe in Jesus... and I will always have one more song.

Lyrics

Turn up the lights, break down the set
They've all gone home, I'm all alone
I walk on the stage and I pick up my guitar
To pack it away, for another day, another day

From the back of the room a voice cries out to me
"One more song, one more song"

One more song I will sing
If it means that you come to know
That Jesus, He loves you
It's Jesus who will sing for you
One more song

See, so many times when searching for the truth
I've tried so hard, I've come so far
But I realize that until I reach the end
Until that day, I'm still far away, too far away

A knock at the door, the door of my heart
And I know the key is in one more song

One more song I will sing
If it means that you come to know
That Jesus, He loves you
It's Jesus, who will sing for you
One more song

Jesus sings for the world, He sings for you and me
Jesus sings with a love that we hear in our hearts
In our hearts

One more song I will sing
If it means that you come to know
That Jesus, He loves you
It's Jesus, who will sing for you
One more song

I will sing
If it means that you come to know
That Jesus, He loves you
And it's really Jesus, not me,
Who will sing for you
That one more song
