By Way of the Light Arlon Bennett/John Sonntag There’s a place I’m goin’ I’ll know when I get there Somewhere across the great divide A great city of gold Aglow on the horizon A place where no one ever cries CHORUS Don’t know when Don’t know where Don’t know how I’ll make it there Don’t know much but to believe It will be By way of the light By way of the light Too long I’ve lived ‘lone in the house of darkness Only to find my eyes were closed But now I see the simple truth before me and I will follow where it goes CHORUS By Way of the Light Verse INSTRU CHORUS By Way of the Light By Way of the Light Watch it shine Watch it shine

Lucky Scars 02:58
Lucky Scars Arlon bennett * arlonsongs@gmail.com * 609-577-9434 Some run shallow some run deep Some will rock you from your sleep Some belong to a wayward knife Some become a way of life talkin’ Scars living proof the hurt was real the painful truth whenever you get burned Scars get left behind sometimes a numb reminder of a hard lesson learned Yeah scars I thank my lucky scars Some are born when duty calls Some are echos down the hall Some are promises never kept Some recall the day she left talkin’ Scars living proof the hurt was real the painful truth whenever you get burned Scars Get left behind sometimes a numb reminder of a hard lesson learned Yeah scars I thank my lucky scars -------- Scars put us wise ‘N teach us to realize Just how breakable we are Scars Thick and thin sometimes deep within Like When they mend a broken heart Yeah Scars I thank my lucky scars I thank my lucky scars

If I Drank 03:53
If I Drank Arlon Bennett * arlonsongs@gmail.com * 609-577-9434 If I drank It might start to show in subtle ways A nervous tic an empty gaze uh Honey I’ll be right back If I drank The top shelf would slowly disappear I’d have to say I’m sorry dear for the boys on poker night If I drank She’d ask me after kissing me I’d say no you just intoxicate me And we’d have a good laugh If I drank White lies would turn a shade of gray Always knowing what to say When she asks where I’d been If I drank I’d come home a bit disheveled From wrestling with the devil Or maybe his wife If I drank Our voices would get louder To the point where I’d out shout her Behind a slamming door If I drank I know I’d have her to thank And to be absolutely frank who needs her anyway If I drank I’d come home to an echo Too find everything I let go In a picture on the floor If I drank I’d have a double for posterity One for her and one for me Guess that’s how it would be If I drank..

Don't Turn Back Now © Arlon Bennett Reach inside your mind find the dream you thought about for a long, long time climb the mountain that you always said you would the one you always said you could Reach inside your pocket find the change you said you’d always make.. and take the chances you’ve been afraid to take fear will be your worst mistake [CHORU] Don’t turn back now Don’t turn back now Dreams are there for the making Don't turn back now Don’t turn back now Stars are there for the taking If you can see through the clouds… Reach inside your heart and find the peace you lost when it broke apart And start to play the games that children often do there’s still a child in you… CHORUS who else can you gonna rely on? and who else will make it so? There's just one thing to keep your eye on.. til' you do you’ll never know, so.. Reach up on the shelf among the dust up there you might find yourself leave the fingerprints for someone else to find you're about to climb... CHORUS
