I need the lyrics to 'Finally behind me lies the body that was mine ... waken to life in the land you have chosen' from the album 'Goodbye October'. I bought that one when I was at uni many years ago and would like to record that song so I can have it at my funeral!

I've had a good read through all the Goodbye October lyrics & couldn't find the one you quoted, but I DID find a blog w/the poem in its entirety. I won't post the link due to prowling spambots, but go to pbthomas dot com & look for a sermon called "To Live is Christ, to Die is Gain" on Philippians 1:12-30 originally posted on March 10th 2014.

The follow up album to his remarkable debut the year prior; Adrian's songs are so inviting to listening ears. One thing the listener will note is, that the music is more joyful; the piano does not overtake.
The opening song with prelude is a nice lengthy 7 minutes+. The now ancient (1937) "By the Waters of Babylon" is exceptionally done: about 20 years later another ccm group The Kry recorded the song.
"Father, Saviour, LORD" is commendable; Ken Parr's flute playing really accents the song.
The wonderful artwork of Eugene Press graces the cover and inside fold of the album; the birds flying away like the epitome of leaves flying from October trees. The lyrics to the opening prelude are written on the front cover and not the inside where the rest of song lyrics are found. Adrian's passionable vocals are so evident in title song that starts side 2.
I really like the keyboards for "JESUS Is My Song".
The very prayerful "And in the Morning" closes the songset; nice closer song. I am so glad that I have discovered Adrian's classic recordings of the 70's.
GOD Bless!-Don
