Extreme Love

(parody of "Dreams" by Van Halen)
New lyrics by Mike Fischer

The Story: I was first exposed to this song as background music for the Navy Blue Angels flight team at an air show. This variation is about people who are reluctant to accept God's free gift.


World twists wrong and right. Picture all this ending soon.
Your life needs turnin' 'round, 'cause it's all untrue.
Teachers all boldly sing, teaching a lie.
Baby, thus said the King,

There's a fire for liars and all that kind.
You want higher, you're required to change your mind.

Run, run from the Way, with your pain from the world's attack.
Got the truth back in your mind, He calls if you will ask.
Understand, He redeems, ever in the light.
Well, thus said the King,

There's a fire for liars and all that kind.
You want higher, you're required to change your mind.

So, baby, why deny saved by the power of Christ?
Oh, that's extreme displayed love.
Even though you're wrong, He's been near you all along.
Is that what you're afraid of?

There's a fire for liars and all that kind.
You want higher, you're required to change your mind.
He'll inspire your desire, that's how we're designed.

So, baby, why deny saved by the power of Christ?
Oh, that's extreme displayed love.
Even though you're wrong, He's been near you all along.
Is that what you're afraid of?

And to the end, Lord wants to be your friend,
'Cause that's what Life is made of.
