Road to Heaven   by Elizabeth Moliter 
Song of the Year Finalist

All my ambitions are buried low
Beneath this wayward skin
And the shining vessels filled with oil
Are empty once again.

The devil still gets in sometimes
Tries to drive the angels out
But the road will wipe the dust away
Till there's nothing left to sin about.


Road to heaven
Miles away
Road to Freedom
My Glory Day

When the old days are said and done
I'll bless them in my prayers
The road was straight but strewn with rocks
And now, I climb the stairs

Repeat chorus

The dreams are more subdued this time
Passion has its place
Maybe peace can heal me now
That I've left behind the race

Repeat chours
 Like a Stone    by Elizabeth Moliter

Won't you walk away
And leave me with my heart?
Those words you never say
Are tearing me apart.


Feel like a stone
Old and alone
Trying to roll back home

Won't you set me free,
These old chains just weigh me down?
And this pain that I've been carrying
Has knocked me to the ground.

Repeat Chorus


Engraved upon this stone
The years we've known
Are filled with grime
And dulled with time.

Say a prayer for me
To wash you from my mind.
And I'll say a prayer for you
When I've left you far behind.

Repeat Chorus



Man on a Wire   by  Elizabeth Moliter

Again the night won't leave you in peace
You grab your coat and you walk the streets
Thinking too much of what you might have been
If you'd taken the paths of other men.

This time tomorrow will be the same
Except for your coat and a gentle rain
Playing old records, round and round in your head
Dreaming of sleep in your empty bed.

Man on a wire
Balancing there
Trapped on the line
Between hope and despair
Is anybody there?

Troubles find you when you're least aware
And lovers tempt you when you're unprepared
You miss the turn to reach your journey's end
And lonely nights will beckon once again

Questions linger
Memories fade
Were they dreams
Or a parade?

Someday maybe if you try to pray
The night will end in a different way
And simple sleep will come for you at last
And the walking nights will run back to the pas



Waiting for Roses  by Laura Moliter

Waiting for the chance to breathe out in space
Waiting for a sign of life by God’s sweet grace
Waiting for roses to bloom in the air

Waiting for the patience to keep on waiting
Waiting for a masterpiece of God’s creating
Waiting for roses to bloom in the air

At the wall through dances
Cursing circumstances
Tired of graceless answers
Tired of howling at the moon.
Waiting for the long lost child to find its way
Waiting for a love, content, to come and stay
Waiting for roses to bloom in the air.
Looking in the eyes of promise, turning away
Listening for a simple answer, forgetting to pray
Waiting for roses to bloom in the air.
Repeat Chorus

Holding out, holding on, holding out
I’m even too tired….
Holding out, holding on, holding out
I'm even to tired, too tired to sing the blues
Waiting for the denouement to close the story
Waiting for God’s pure design to show its glory
Waiting for roses to bloom in the air.



Imagine   by Laura Moliter
Imagine I’m the one for you.
Just imagine, oh what would you do.
I’m not John Lennon. I’m not even tryin’ to be…
But just imagine me
as the one to rest your dreams upon
and a place to lose your fears…
Just picture me, tell me what you see.
What do you feel when you think of me—
Am I the one you need?
Imagine that I make you smile.
Just imagine that I drive you wild.
Oh, I’m not perfect, I’m not even tryin’ to be,
but just imagine me, as the one to hold your heart secure
and the name you cry at night….
Repeat Chorus
Imagine I’m the one you love
Just imagine I’m a blessing from above
I’m not an angel, I’m not even tryin’ to be,
but just imagine me,
as the one you love like I love you…
I’ll just imagine that it’s true…
Walking a Thin Line    by Laura Moliter

Huddled in my questions
Feeling Like a sham
She said I was a hypocrite
And maybe I am.
Holding onto anger
Not even knowing why
Ashamed of being shameful
And full on humble pie.
Walking a thin line, walking a thin line
Losing my life line, saying I’m fine
And walking that line, walking that thin line…
I wish that things were clearer
Or that I didn’t care
I see the escalator
But need to take the stairs
But I see your hands are moving
I like the way you play
Maybe I can hold on
to that for one more day 
Repeat chorus
Standin’ on the catwalk
The stage is big below
Afraid to make my entrance
Afraid I’ll steal the show
The secrets I’m not telling
Are written in a book
That lies upon the table
For everyone to look
I’d like to be a mystery
To someone else but me
I’m at the door of freedom
And fumbling for my key…
Repeat Chorus
