Redemption (v1)New song from the album that is being worked on... Stay tuned! WIll be improved Copyright by Xavio Cloud Lyrics: Covered by darkness, living under the weight of sin, powerless My reality living in endless guilt I thought I had to buy the price for my own righteousness But my deeds were like a stained cloth of filth and wretchedness Pain in my heart My flesh became wild Burdens of sin made me confined Chorus Far away from Your Holy presence, And still You came to free me Redemption - you paid the price for me Precious blood of Jesus Christ The chains of sin around me, broken spirit hanging all around Covered in my shame, longing for forgiveness Then you revealed your precious light, trading your righteousness for my guilt Showed me a way beyond my past failures Song of redemption so sweet to my ears Burdens of sin removed - I am free ! Chorus: Far away from Your Holy presence, And still You came to free me Redemption - you paid the price for me Precious blood of Jesus Christ Far away from Your Holy presence You dared to draw near to me Redemption - The blood of Christ covered my sins "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and they are justified freely by His grace, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus." (Romans 3:23-24) "In Him we have redemption through His blood, forgiveness of sins, in accordance to the riches of God's grace" (Ephesians 1:7) Song of redemption so sweet to my ears Forgiveness unveiled, You have been good to me Song of redemption so sweet to my ears Burdens of sin removed - I am free! Chorus: Far away... End: I hear the sound of broken chains letting my soul go I hear the song of redemption echoing in Heaven
RememberA song which melody I imagined when I was 15, in 2003. Then I made a version in 2008, then another version in 2010, and here a new version, closer to what I had imagined when I was a teenager, but with more elaborate lyrics, a kind of mix between Depeche Mode and Eiffel 65 8-) All rights to Xavio Cloud Lyrics (by Xavio Cloud): When I look back upon my life All the things I had to go through Everything was used by you Lord So you could open my eyes You carried me on eagle's wings You worked everything for the best Your love was shown to me so deeply I could never turn back Chorus: I'll remember your love that opened my eyes I'll remember your grace that made me alive I will live in your promises that are so true They will be fulfilled as I stay with you When I look back upon those years None of your plans were in vain You proved you wanted the best for me How could I be so blind But now I see more clearly Your love is plain for me to see I still cannot fathom everything But now I see you Chorus: I'll remember... Bridge: More than the moments I lived with you More than anything you gave me May I never forget your love May I love you again and again Chorus: I'll remember...
I Want You (cover Savage Garden)
I Want You (cover Savage Garden)As a little surprise, a cover I made from one of my childhood favorite songs. In an interview, Darren Hayes who was lead singer of the band said he recorded his voice 6 times and 6 backing singers for the chorus, making 12 voices in total. I tried to reproduce something similar though not exactly the same. Definitely my favourite pop song from the 90s. Though Savage Garden released only two albums, both were great. The eponymous album is my favourite pop album from the 90s along with Depeche Mode's "Violator". I also wish to cover "To the Moon and Back" someday. I also think Darren Hayes solo albums are really good. And I especially love the live DVD "A Big Night In" from 2006. Darren, Daniel, if you ever hear my cover version, I hope you guys will like it :) Blessings from France
True Faith (cover New Order) demo 2013
True Faith (cover New Order) demo 2013Cover of New Order I made this cover version in 2013 while living in London. I was younger, my voice was younger, it is recognizable but it sounds a bit funny to hear a younger version of me. Enjoy!

Ship Of Fools (Cover Erasure)
Ship Of Fools (Cover Erasure)A cover of my favorite Erasure song. I usually compose Christian songs but I like this song as it is a reflection about life and time that passes. Original authors: Andrew Bell, Vince Clarke I can't believe what is happening to me My head is spinning (Spinning) The flowers and the trees are encapsulating me And I go spinning (Spinning) He was the baby of the class you know He really didn't know that one and one was two Two and two were four He was the baby of the class you know He really didn't know that Really didn't know that Oh what a poor soul Oooh, do we not set sail on the ship of fools Oooh, why is life so precious and so cruel I close my eyes and I try to imagine What you're dreaming Why can't you see what you're doing to me My world is spinning (Spinning) He was the baby of the class you know He really didn't know that one and one was two Two and two were four You were the baby of the class you know You were so young and so uncertain Suffer little children Oh what a poor soul Oooh, do we not set sail on the ship of fools Oooh, why is life so precious and so cruel He was the baby of the class you know He really didn't know that one and one was two Two and two were four He was the baby of the class He was so young and so uncertain Suffer little children Oh what a poor soul Oooh, do we not set sail on the ship of fools Oooh, why is life so precious and so cruel Oooh, do we not set sail on the ship of fools Oooh, why is life so precious and so cruel
MysteryAll rights by Xavio Cloud. Lyrics: Who am I that You would care for me? I wonder... Who am I that You would call me yours? I wonder... Your love reached out to the lowest sinner, why me? Your blood shed for me, am I worthy of it? In the midst of the fiery furnace Your hand reaches out to mine In the end of the day I'll taste the sweetest rest Chorus: I'll never understand this mystery Of Your amazing love for me And even if I had eternity, I wouldn't be able to express it Never let me go from Your presence Never let me turn my back on You You have the words of life To whom else shall I go? To whom else shall I go... You came for me, did I deserve it? surely not But your grace goes beyond my sin, I'm amazed Every time I fall or fail, Your hand reaches out to mine Your divine love is what I need, I see, Still a mystery to me Jesus Christ why did you die for me? My words are not enough... Chorus: I'll never understand this mystery Of Your amazing love for me And even if I had eternity, I wouldn't be able to express it Never let me go from Your presence Never let me turn my back on You You have the words of life To whom else shall I go? To whom else shall I go... Bridge: Nothing compares to what You have done My words are not enough Nothing can replace what You gave to me (gave to me) Chorus: I'll never understand this mystery Of Your amazing love for me And even if I had eternity, I wouldn't be able to express it Never let me go from Your presence Never let me turn my back on You You have the words of life To whom else shall I go? To whom else shall I go...

Runaway Train (cover Soul Asylum)
Runaway Train (cover Soul Asylum)A cover version from Soul Asylum's song from 1992 that was dedicated to runaway or missing people. As a Christian, I believe there is much sadness in God's eyes towards those who are lost and wandering. Children kidnapped, or runaway teenagers, I pray for those wandering souls. This cover is dedicated to them. Lyrics: Call you up in the middle of the night like a firefly without a light you were there like a blowtorch burning i was a key that could use a little turning so tired that i couldn't even sleep so many secrets i couldn't keep promised myself i wouldn't weep one more promise i couldn't keep it seems no one can help me now i'm in too deep there's no way out this time i have really lead myself astray runaway train, never goin' back wrong way on a one-way track seems like i should be getting somewhere somehow i'm neither here nor there can you help me remember how to smile? make it somehow all seem worthwhile how on earth did i get so jaded? life's mysteries seem so faded i can go where noone else can go i know what no one else knows here i am just drownin' in the rain with a ticket for a runaway train and everything seems cut and dry day and night earth and sky somehow i just don't believe it runaway train, never goin' back wrong way on a one-way track seems like i should be getting somewhere somehow i'm neither here nor there bought a ticket for a runaway train like a madman laughing at the rain little out of touch, little insane it's just easier than dealing with the pain runaway train, never goin' back wrong way on a one-way track seems like i should be getting somewhere somehow i'm neither here nor there runaway train, never comin' back runaway train, tearin' up the track runaway train, burnin' in my veins i run away but it always seems the same
Prayer For This Generation
Prayer For This GenerationAll rights belong to Xavio Cloud Lyrics: Life of wandering, life of emptiness is human's daily bread Why are men so creative at destroying each other? Jesus came to preach and heal and save and comfort our souls But why do we turn away, wondering at our misfortune I'm praying for Godly men to rise I pray God, please open our eyes We carried the ball and chain for too long, We have been foolish for too long! But there is redemption for our sins... We've got an open path for redemption Through the blood of Christ Or will we let our unbelief lead us to miss this love? People open your eyes! Here is God's free gift that leads us to redemption Or will you let your doubtful minds drive you away from the solution? I'm praying for Godly men to rise I pray God, please open our eyes We carried the ball and chain for too long, We have been foolish for too long! But there is redemption for our sins...
Justified (I Know I'm Loved)
Justified (I Know I'm Loved)Lyrics: Fountain of life, streams of unspeakable love Skies of mercy proclaiming God's goodness Flows of grace are being poured on me, God's forgiveness melting my anger I am a sinner, more than I thought It's true But the love of Christ overturned my life Beyond the walls of my failures I know I'm loved Jesus crucified shows me I am loved My debt of sin was too high, but know I am justified My scarlet sin, God you made it white as snow You turned my mourning into dancing You took my guilt to give me your righteousness You came to me with your rain of grace I am a sinner, more than I thought, It's true But you keep lifting me up when I fall Now I know what is true love, you showed me You gave your life for my redemption! Beyond the walls of my failures I know I'm loved Jesus crucified shows me I am loved My debt of sin was too high, but know I am justified
Crush The Evil
Crush The EvilLyrics: Time to stop compromising with sin and all kinds of corruption The world's in need of the light of Christ May our prayers reach the sky The world is living in an urgent time and it needs intercession Lies, immorality, killings and grief need to be driven out Chorus: This world can't be changed by human power nor by self-righteousness Only by accepting God's grace a new life can begin Brothers it's time to pray God our Saviour and seek His heavenly power The world needs to know the redemption that is in the blood of Jesus Christ Chorus: This world... Time of repentance! Time of refreshment! Time of salvation! There is salvation that is for free Through the blood of Christ There is forgiveness that is for free If you open your heart God has made a promise He will pour out blessings If we humble ourselves and pray

Keep Yourself Clean (2012 version)Rights owned by Lifestream. Lyrics: I hate to see obscene pictures on my TV screen I hate all this porchery you can see in the magazines This is how culture became defiled and filthy I don't think it's funny, I won't ever accept it Don't let the world influence you, My friend I tell this to protect your soul Lustful pleasures will deceive you And finally they'll rip your heart They want to influence your life So separate yourself from them Dwell in the light of Jesus Christ Before doing anything you regret Keep yourself clean Don't mess your purity tonight Don't let your soul become dark Because of things that catch your eyes
