TALKING

 

 

 

THIS SONG IS DEDICATED IN THE LOVING MEMORY OF MY DEAR BROTHER CHUCK.  I KNOW ITÕS HARD FOR ME TO EXPRESS MY FEELINGS, BUT THROUGH THE GIFT OF MUSIC I ALWAYS TEND TO FIND A WAY.  AND CHUCK, EVEN THOUGH GOD CALLED YOU TO COME HOME, JUST REMEMBER I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU.

 

 

 

VERSE 1

 

 

 

TO MY BIG BROTHER, ONE OF A KIND, THERE IS NO OTHER

 

THE FIRST CHILD OF MY MOTHER, THE ONE WHO TOOK ME UNDER HIS WING

 

AND TAUGHT ME TO BRING MY BEST IN SITUATIONS

 

HE NEVER GAVE UP DESPITE WHAT WOULD HINDER HIS PATIENCE

 

NOT ONLY THAT, A MAN OF HIS WORD HE DID FOR ME

 

THROUGH ALL THE STRIFE HE WALKED THROUGH THIS LIFE WITH DIGNITY

 

PLUS HE MEANT TO ME MUCH MORE THAN ANYONE CAN IMAGINE

 

I CANNOT FATHOM A DIFFERENT LIFE IF I DID NOT HAVE HIM

 

THE THOUGHTS OF HIM AND ME IS REPLACED BY MEMORY

 

THE EPIDOMY OF WHAT A BROTHER SHOULD BE IS THE THOUGHTS HEÕS GIVEN ME

 

I CANNOT GIVE GOD ENOUGH APPRECIATION

 

FOR THE TIMES THAT WE SHARED PLUS THE CHANCE OF A GREAT RELATION

 

THOUGH STILL ITÕS HARD FOR ME, I DONÕT FEEL THAT YOUÕRE FAR FROM ME

 

CAUSE YOU ARE TO ME STILL AND ALWAYS WILL BE A MAJOR PART OF ME

 

YOU PASSED ON BUT MY LOVE FOR YOU IS STILL VERY STRONG

 

AND THIS IS WHY I SING THIS SONG

 

 

CHORUS 1

 

 

 

BUT GOD TOLD HIM TO COME HOME

 

COME HOME TO ME TO YOUR PARADISE UP ABOVE

 

HE TOLD HIM TO COME HOME

 

DONÕT WORRY ABOUT YOUR FAMILY, THEYÕLL BE TAKEN CARE OF

 

SO JUST COME HOME

 

CAUSE THE PAIN THAT YOU ENDURED, NO LONGER YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH

 

WHY DONÕT YOU JUST COME HOME

 

CAUSE PARADISE IS WAITING FOR YOU

 

 

VERSE 2

 

 

 

A FRIEND, COUNSELOR, GREAT SINGER, A BROTHER

 

COMEDIAN, CONFIDANT, MUSICAL INSTRUCTOR

 

A FATHER, SON AND PROVIDER, THE FIRSTBORN

 

A FEW OF HIS TITLES BUT YET THE LIST GOES ON

 

MANY MEMORIES WEÕVE SHARED FACE TO FACE ARE SUDDENLY UP

 

LIKE THE PLAY FIGHTS WE HAD AS CHILDREN TO TOUGHEN ME UP

 

I REMEMBER HOW HE FOOLED ME TO THINK HE WAS TWO PEOPLE

 

THE GOOD CHUCKIE NICE, BUT THE BAD CHUCKIE WAS EVIL

 

I USED TO HANG WITH HIM AS HE PLAYED BASKETBALL

 

HE TOOK ME EVERYWHERE, I DIDNÕT HAVE TO ASK AT ALL

 

THE STUDIO SESSIONS WHAT I KNOW I LEARNED FROM HIM

 

I EARNED FROM HIM KNOWLEDGE CAUSE I ALWAYS TURNED TO HIM

 

I MISS ALL YOUR VISITS AND PHONE CALLS AS YOU LAUGHED WITH ME

 

IÕD BE HAPPY TO SEE IF YOU CAME BACK TO ME

 

AND EVERYTIME HE SANG, HIS GIFT SPOKE FOR ITSELF

 

CAN I GET A WITNESS OF THE FACT HE SANG LIKE NOONE ELSE

 

PURE DEVINE HE WAS AND A LOVING GUR BECAUSE

 

THE CHRIST THAT LIVED IN HIM IS THE REASON WHY HE WAS

 

THE TWO BROTHERS I HAD IS SUDDENLY ONE

 

IF I COULD BE HALF THE BIG BROTHER YOU WERE TO ME THEN MY JOB IS DONE

 

NO CHANCE TO SAY THAT I LOVE YOU BUT THIS ENDEAVOR

 

WOULD HELP ME FEEL BETTER IF WE COULD JUST SAY IT TOGETHER

 

SO I LOVE YOU AND THIS IS TRUE

 

AND IÕLL NEVER GET OVER LOSING YOU

 

 

CHORUS 2

 

 

 

BUT GOD TOLD HIM TO COME HOME

 

COME HOME TO ME TO THE PLACE THATÕS FULL OF LOVE

 

HE TOLD HIM TO COME HOME

 

DONÕT WORRY ABOUT YOUR CHILDREN, THEYÕLL BE TAKEN CARE OF

 

SO JUST COME HOME

 

CAUSE THE PAIN THAT YOU ENDURED, NO LONGER YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH

 

WHY DONÕT YOU JUST COME HOME

 

MO SON, HEAVENÕS WAITING FOR YOU

 

 

VERSE 3

 

 

 

THEREÕS TOO MUCH TO SAY ABOUT A MAN LIKE THIS

 

THREE VERSES JUST AINÕT ENOUGH SO I OFTEN JUST REMINISCE

 

AND THINK ABOUT YOUR ESSENCE

 

I KNOW YOUR SPIRIT LIVES COMES SOMETIMES I STILL FEEL YOUR PRESENCE

 

AROUND ME, YOUR LOVE SURROUNDS ME, THOUGH RIGHT NOW WE

 

CANÕT BE FACE TO FACE, BUT I KNOW ONE DAY WE SHALL BE

 

I TRY TO COPE BUT GOD KNOWS ITÕS TOUGH

 

ON DAYS OF SADNESS I REALLY COULD USE YOUR JOKES TO CHEER ME UP

 

AND TO MY PARENTS WHO LOST THEIR FIRSTBORN SON

 

WHEN I KISS YOU ITÕS IN HIS HONOR FOR A JOB WELL DONE

 

FOR YOU RAISED HIM IN A WAY THAT WAS FOCUSED ON CHRIST

 

FROM THAT FOUNDATION HE WAS EXPOSED TO THE GIFT OF ETERNAL LIFE

 

AND CHUCK, THE PAIN YOU WENT THROUGH AND BEEN THROUGH

 

IF I WASNÕT THERE AND HURT YOU, I NEVER MEANT TO

 

BUT WHEN YOUR SICKNESS TOOK PLACE I WAS DEVESTATED

 

AND WHEN YOU WENT TO THAT HOPITAL I BARELY MADE IT

 

CAUSE THE BROTHER THAT I IDOLIZED FULL OF LIFE WAY BACK

 

WAS VULNERABLE, HARD TO SEE YOU LIKE THAT

 

MANY DAYS OF WATCHING YOU STRUGGLE HURT MY HEART

 

MANY TIMES I PRAYED FOR YOUR HEALING AND A BRAND NEW START

 

YOUR LAST HOURS WITH ME YOUR SICKNESS WAS NOT REVEALING

 

MY PRAYERS WERE ANSWERED CAUSE YOU RECEIVED THE ULTIMATE HEALING

 

THE LAST WORDS I SAID TO YOU WERE BE SAFE

 

AND YOU WERE CAUSE THAT SAME NIGHT WITH GOD YOU WERE FACE TO FACE

 

AS HE TOLD YOU TO

 

 

CHORUS 3

 

 

 

BUT GOD TOLD HIM TO COME HOME

 

COME HOME TO ME TO YOUR PARADISE UP ABOVE

 

HE TOLD CHUCKIE TO COME HOME

 

DONÕT WORRY ABOUT YOUR LOVED ONES, THEYÕLL BE TAKEN CARE OF

 

SO JUST COME HOME

 

CAUSE THE PAIN THAT YOU ENDURED, NO LONGER YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH

 

WHY DONÕT YOU JUST COME HOME

 

CAUSE PARADISE IS WAITING FOR YOU

 

 

 

OUTRO SINGING

 

 

 

COME BACK HOME, BACK TO ME, COME BACK HOME, COME HOME TO ME, COME BACK HOME, BACK TO ME, COME BACK HOME, DONÕT YOU EVER LEAVEÉREPEAT
