07. The Basics Of Life

Another Time, Another Place: Timeless Christian Classics
by Avalon



 

We’ve turned the page, for a new day has dawned
We’ve re-arranged what is right and what’s wrong
Somehow we’ve drifted so far from the truth
That we can’t get back home

Where are the virtues that once gave us light
Where are the morals that governed our lives
Someday we all will awake and look back
just to find what we’ve lost

CHORUS
We need to get back
To the basics of life
A heart that is pure
And a love that is blind
A faith that is fervently
grounded in Christ
The hope that endures for all times
These are the basics,
we need to get back
To the basics of life

The newest rage is to reason it out
Just meditate and you can overcome every doubt
After all man is a God, they say
God is no longer alive

But I still believe in the old rugged cross
And I still believe there is hope for the lost
And I know the rock of all ages will stand
Through changes of time

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
We’ve let the darkness invade us too long
We’ve got to turn the tide
Oh and we need the passion that burned long ago
To come and open our eyes
There’s no room for compromise

We need to get back
To the basics of life
A heart that is pure
And a love that is blind

REPEAT CHORUS

Behind the Song:
'“Basics” has such a timeless message. We seem always to be into the newest way to reach people and the newest way to have church, unfortunately forsaking the Gospel message. Let us be challenged yet again to keep Jesus Christ at the center of all we do. He will always stand the test of time.' — Melissa Greene (Avalon)
