Original Song – “Thousand Faces”

Thousand Faces is a mirror that captures the reflection of all of us together as a collective society and tries to illustrate how unique and special every one of us really is!  Each and every one of us has a story to tell and the lyrics ask us to take the time to look at each other, see the light in the eyes around us, reach out and touch those lives and choose to be a part of those lives – because “No one can stand alone…We all need a little love…Can you show someone you care…That you care…Touch the lives of a thousand faces here tonight!”

~~~~~~~~~~

I recorded my original song “Thousand Faces” on Set Seven in 1996 and it speaks to, “Can you stop and take the time, Take the time, To be part of a thousand lives here tonight, No one can stand alone, We all need a little love, Can you show someone you care, That you care, Touch the lives of a thousand faces here tonight.” Enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark

As with all of my early songs during which I worked with my friend Gordon Olvera, I’ve shared the copyright with him for trying to give voice to my songs.  Also, emailed versions of these songs lose their chord alignment and formatting, so refer to the original post and/or the scanned lyric sheet as your guide.

  1. So many thoughts go through my mind as this plays now in my head on Your Radio Station. 🙂

    It is sad when you look at the younger generation who don’t know how to socialize unless electronics are involved.

    They do not understand that “We all have faces in the night”, “We all have faces in the light” They need to “Take the time to look and see.”

    God Bless you Mark & Thank you for an addition to Your Radio Station in my head.

  2. Jade,

    Thank you so much! The fact that my songs bring you joy and you can play them in your head is truly a blessing to me! 🙂

    Take care, rest up and get well! Blessings to you and yours in Christ!

    Mark
