about

It's been 7 years since UR's first studio release "Only If You Go With Me". In that time the band has played over 1,800 shows and worship events, on three separate continents.

"This Side Of The Sea" is an eclectic array of songs written and recorded by us during our travels. Each song on this record is the overflow of our experiences in these past 7 years. Our hope is that you too will learn to praise God on this side of the sea of life.

Track Name: Feel It (Live Studio Version)
CHORUS:
Can you feel it? Yea
Can you feel it? Feel it? Yea

VERSE 1:
It’s a notion of emotion
Can you feel it in your bones now?
Can you feel it? Like I feel it?
Can you feel it? Yea

CHORUS

VERSE 2:
Well it’s surging, like it’s emerging
Can you feel it? Like I feel it?
Can you feel it, your chest it bursts now
It’s like a thirst now, yea

CHORUS

VERSE 4:
Open your eyes and see
Strengthen your weak knees
Open your mouth and speak
Oh no, don’t you leave
Oh no, don’t you leave
Oh no, don’t you leave
I’m at the edge of me

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
I open up my eyes and realize
It’s all real
You know it exists
I said you feel it at your fingertips
‘Cause it’s all real

TAG:
Oh, this World has got nothing on me, yea
Oh, through blood, man, I’ve been set free, c’mon
Oh, this World has got nothing on me, yea
Oh, through Your blood, Lord, I’ve been set free, c’mon
Oh, this World has got nothing on me
Track Name: God Leads Us Along
VERSE 1: Em - G - A - G - A - Em
In shady green pastures
So rich and so sweet
God leads His children along
Where the waters cool flow
Bathes the weary ones feet
God leads His children along

CHORUS: Em - G - A - G - Em
Some through the waters
And some through the floods
Some through the fire
But all through the Blood
God leads His children along

Some through great sorrow
But God gives a song
In the night season
And all the day long
God leads His children along

VERSE 2: Em - G - A - G - A - Em
Sometimes on the mount
Where the sun shines so bright
God leads His children along
And sometimes in the valley
In the darkest of night
God leads his children along

VERSE 3: (4 measures of Em) Em - G - A - G - A - Em
Forty days and forty nights
I crawled in the desert but walked in Your light
Forty days and forty nights
I tread the flood, You gave me the might
Whether the fire or whether the flood
With Your power we trek through the mud
‘Cause through Your blood, You redeemed it Love
Nights are longer
Wrong gets wronger
Through the hunger
He is stronger
Top of my lungs, “Jesus is Stronger!”.
Burn my body - can’t touch my soul
Excuse my tongue for being so bold
Sharing wisdom from days of old
Jesus Christ, He sits on the throne
In the breeze or the light of day
Or bitters tears where bodies lay
Don’t even care what they say
He’s as real as the day - my dad walked away
So give me the Mic
Do what You’d like.
Give me the sight
Bring me the fight
Lead us a’ right, with Your light
‘Cause through Your blood, You redeemed it Love!
Track Name: Pride On Parade
Verse 1:
Today I heard a sterling man…
Said he’d “figured out his five year plan”
As he told his brother he was heading home
And he didn’t know the truth he spoke
Would, in a few minutes cause his wife to choke
As she heard of his death over the telephone

See, around the corner I heard his feet
As the car came to a halt and screeched…
The cab driver, he didn’t know what to do
Now I’m wondering about heading home
Cause in my head I know I’m not alone
The guy that died, he was thinking about his future too

Pre-Chrous:
I’m singing about how
I’m sinking in my doubt
I’m looking for truth now
Man, is there a way out?

Chorus:
We have always been faithful
To plan our own way
Now we’ve got a whole human race full
Of pride on parade

Verse 2:
Today I heard a homeless man
Said Jesus gave new life to him
And he couldn’t wait ‘til he was headed Home
And he didn’t know the truth he spoke
Plus my change would help him not be broke
He said, “keep it son, you know that I’m not alone

See, around the corner is where I sleep
And the good Lord keeps the shoes on my feet,
I’m a stranger, that’s just passing through…
I’m done wondering about heading home
Cause in my heart I know I’m not alone
The God that died, He was thinking about my future too”

Pre-Chrous:
But you’re singing about how
You’re sinking in your doubt
You’re looking for truth now
Man, I know the way out…

Final Chorus:
See, We have always been faithful
To plan our own way
Now we’ve got a whole human race full
Of pride on parade
And God, you know, I am grateful
Of how faithful you have been
But God, you know I am hateful
Won’t you save me from my sins?
Track Name: This Side Of The Sea
VERSE 1: Em - C - Em - C
And I will praise you on this side of the sea
They’ve come to take my home from me
The invisible God they’ve chosen not to see
And will then be swallowed in their unbelief
Their hearts, their hearts have known no peace
So now their eyes will find no sleep
In home heavenly, in my home heavenly

How a father has hated his daughter and sons
And tried to cause his wife to run
But the mighty arms they’re, they’re underneath
And my mother has run into those arms of peace
“A father to fatherless”, He’s been whispering to me
“Now pass through the river, it won’t sweep over thee”

CHORUS:
G
So we go, we go, we’re going home
C
And God, he waits upon His throne
G D/F# G
For you and me, in my home heavenly
G
And we know, we know, and we’ve been shown
C
God’s Son, He shapes and makes our home
G D/F# G
While breaking me, for my home heavenly

VERSE 2: Em - C - Em - C
I claim this world is not our home
We’re on our way to fully-grown
And on that day, a husband will see
What his wife had always known
What his children had sung
And were born to show
That Christ’s love has come and their sins atoned
That dead man live, and their sins atoned
Hey Dad, the Carpenter’s hands have built my home
Track Name: Swing Low
VERSE 1:
Whoa-now, Slow down,
Let me kick you something I just wrote down.
I was sittin’, thinkin’.
Eatin’ some chicken.
Rhymes were flippin’
In my mental vision.
And I was just thinkin’,
‘bout things that where written
About life and love and the life that we’re livin’
People can’t accept the things we were given,
So me and my crew, man, we just stay hidden.
So I spent my day ‘neath a chestnut tree,
Talkin’ to Clay and just shootin’ the breeze.
But I’m OK, God provide my needs.
And I hear You speak as I quietly read.
And it seem kind a good that now a days,
As I pass by they know my name.
But it seems even quicker that they pass the blame.
But I guess that it comes with the passing fame.
And don’t be surprised - see tears in my eyes,
All you dudes do is criticize.
But like Whoa, I know,
When I kick the show,
All you people don’t know,
You can’t handle the flow.
But through tribulation comes the patience.
So lets kick this off without hesitation.

CHORUS:
Swing Low, sweet chariot
Father come down here and take me up
‘Cause I don’t think they can handle my flow
Or the fact that you live in us
They criticize and size me up
But we only answer to the One above

VERSE 2:
I swear we’ve been marching, seems like, ten long years
The seas we’ve been parting have just disappeared
My Fam, we’ve been rollin’, forever plus one night
Yesterday is the new tomorrow, won’t let us pass us by
Cause where I come from, we learn to run
Before we walk
And where I come from, we learn to sing, before we talk
And where I come from, we learn to die, before we live
So when it all falls down upon our heads, we can give

CHORUS:
Swing Low, sweet chariot
Father come down here and take me up
‘Cause I don’t think they can handle my flow
Or the fact that you live in us
They criticize and size me up
But we only answer to the One above

VERSE 3:
And this might sound like a vintage flow.
That’s why I writ this though.
So I could let ya’ll know,
Some days is hard, we don’t make no dough.
But Ok, with you Lord, I won’t sway.
Even if they keep their talking all day,
I keep it on my knees, to You I pray.
So I Spit fire, spit balls of flame.
And if they misfire, they could cost the game.
But then they walk by like they ashamed,
But I still smile like, “what’s His name”.
And no matter what they say,
We make these beats knock.
Piano in the composition,
It makes the song rock.
They play, I faze, I make the flow lock.
Everything that was HOT, count it all a loss.
Me and my crew, laid it down for the cross.
Through woes, bust shows, and I brush my clothes.
D-A-T come through, everybody’s like, “whoa”.

CHORUS:
Swing Low, sweet chariot
Father come down here and take me up
‘Cause I don’t think they can handle my flow
Or the fact that you live in us
They criticize and size me up
But we only answer to the One above

Oh, this World has got nothing on me
