lyrics

David Mathewes:
Remember when I rode to the mountains saying
I’m sick of lookin at this plain
Mile after mile of nothin at all
and every day is more of the same
Only brings more of the same

Lord don’t let me lose my way again
or forget where I stake my claim
and when the rooster crows in the morning
Please give me more of the same O Lord
Just a little more of the same

Chunjay:
life is hard but it’s good
even when not living the way we should
put that axe to wood like St. Boniface
cut Thor’s oak at the base
superfluous
ridiculous, the things I miss
distracted from delight cause I missed some kiss
what is this? it’s not what I planned
but I wouldn’t trade my life for five hundred grand
i’m grateful to think that there is no shame
to simply ask the Lord for more of the same

David Mathewes:
Unpin your hair in the kitchen
as pretty as a picture in a picture frame
Look at the fields and the plowing to do and think,
please give me more of the same, O Lord
Please give me more of the same

I got a cough I can’t seem to shake
and a colt I can’t seem to tame
laying down praying don’t take me yet, Lord
please give me more of the same
Lord just a little more of the same

Chunjay:
it’s that hard work you didn’t know was joy
it’s that sleepless night from that baby boy
it’s that needless attention you did just cause
it’s that thoughtful mention gave her a buzz
that mournful retention of what was great
it’s that peaceful forgiveness that once was hate
it’s embracing ordinary days, ways of life
it’s facing challenges, takin it in stride
it’s knowing you were wronged but not making a claim
it’s embracing grace, and asking for the same

David Mathewes:
By and by when we meet at the throne
singin praises to your Holy name
Forever after bathed in the light singin
please give me more of the same, O Lord
please give me more of the same

Lord don’t let me lose my way again
or forget where I stake my claim
and when the sun climbs over the fence
please give me more of the same O Lord
Please give me more of the same
