YOLO  copyright 2017

 

Takin a chance, makin a change, life’s little choices

I've always been scared to try something new, but you only live once damn its so true

 

I’m not sayin that I’m scared no more

I’m ready to open every new door

Open the blinds, let the light shine

 

Livin for joy inside my heart

Takin a risk, bein so brave

You only live once, don’t be afraid

Singin’ woah, woah

 

Ready to live, ready to laugh, Go on & try it

So much more fun, when its all done, life is so short, so love it!

 

I’m not sayin that I’m scared no more

I’m ready to open every new door

Open the blinds, let the light shine

Livin for joy inside my heart

Takin a risk, bein so brave

You only live once, don’t be afraid

Singin’ woah, woah

If something makes you squirm, Go give it a whirl

You’ll be surprised how freeing it feels, 

You’re ready to take on the world!

I’m not sayin that I’m scared no more

I’m ready to open every new door

Open the blinds, let the light shine

Livin for joy inside my heart

Takin a risk, bein so brave

You only live once, don’t be afraid

Singin’ woah, woah

By My Side

 

Stay just a little while longer

Stay just a little while longer 

Oooo, oooo

 

Come just a little bit closer

Come just a little bit closer

Oooo, oooo

 

The time is right lets not waste the night

Baby put your arms around me I am safe when you are by my side

Love will set us free, its just you and me

I’m so glad you’re here with me there’s nowhere else that I would rather be

Can’t you see so won’t you

 

Come just a little bit closer

Come just a little bit closer

Oooo, oooo

 

The time is right lets not waste the night

Baby put your arms around me I am safe when you are by my side

Love will set us free, its just you and me

I’m so glad you’re here with me there’s nowhere else that I would rather be

Can’t you see so won’t you

 

Stay just a little while longer

Stay just a little while longer 

Oooo, oooo

 

 

Sun on my Skin

 

Drivin’ with the windows down, sun on my skin

Grateful for the warmth all around

Sweetness of the day fills my senses

The whole earth is bursting with life

 

Do you see all the beauty?

Smell the fragrance in the air?

Hear the music in the branches?

What else more could we ask for?

 

Drivin’ with the windows down, sun on my skin

Grateful for the warmth all around

Sweetness of the day fills my senses

The whole earth is bursting with life

 

Do you see all the beauty?

Smell the fragrance in the air?

Hear the music in the branches?

What else more could we ask for?

 

Crying Out For Love

 

So much confusion, so much fear

So much anger, billions of tears

The world is crying, crying out for love

 

And I feel the call in my heart

To be light amidst the dark

Cause the lower they go

The higher we will rise

 

I believe in the goodness in each of you

I believe in our power to speak the truth

And if we love each other like sisters & brothers

We’ll be the change we wish to see

 

And I feel the call in my heart

To be light amidst the dark

Cause the world will keep on spinning

But love will conquer all

 

This songs my prayer to the world, its what I can do

My heart is crying out to each of you

If you feel the call in your heart

To be light amidst the dark

There’s no time to waste, now is the time

Our time to Rise.

Never Long Enough copyright 2017

 

You just pulled out the driveway and already I’m missing you

Walking through the rooms now searching for remnants of you

 

Cause its never quite enough

No its never long enough

When a part of your heart & soul isn’t here

The void is so clear, the void is so near

 

I hate this part when you leave us, missing you never goes away

Hoping & praying one day soon we’ll be together again

 

Cause its never quite enough

No its never long enough

When a part of your heart & soul isn’t here

The void is so clear, the void is so near

 

Ooo, missin you, missing you...

 

When you’re back we’ll pick up with our loving & our fun

Cause tho our branches grow in different directions, our roots remain as one

 

But its never quite enough

No its never long enough

When a part of your heart & soul isn’t here

The void is so clear, the void is so near

 

 

Take a Chance copyright 2017

 

Standing at the edge of everything I know

My defensive walls start to fall

I was made a fool played like a toy

But I’ll be damned if that steals my joy

 

Risking it all, risking it all

For the chance to fall

 

I am brave enough to trust again

Open up my heart to love, take a chance

I survived deceit and still I am here

I refuse to live my life in fear

 

Risking it all, risking it all

For the chance to fall

 

Wake up and try

Do not hide your love

You only win

When you give your love

 

 

Some Men Need To Hear This copyright 2017

 

Just cause I big a good a hug, that don’t mean we’re in love

Just cause I give you a smile & we talk for a while

 

We may share a good laugh, you’re ready to make a pass

But don’t do it

 

Cause it don’t mean a thing & I don’t pretend to know what you think

but from experience some men need to hear this

 

You think we might have this vibe, but I’m warning you don’t even try

You’re staring deeply at me, take it easy boy can’t you see

 

I spread my love all around, but I won’t be tied down

I’ve learned my lesson

 

Cause it don’t mean a thing & I don’t pretend to know what you think

But from experience some men need to hear this

 

Just cause I big a good a hug, that don’t mean we’re in love

Just cause I give you a smile & we talk for a while

 

 

The Fringe copyright 2017

 

I’m closing the door now its time for me to go now

You used me and abused me so now you will lose me

Cause I gave this 3 years and I got no more tears left for

You took my love but you had nothing to give so I’m closing the book of our love now

 

You left me with a broken heart, but I’m the one to blame

I gave you everything I had, its such a cryin shame

Now I’ll never be the same, you know what I mean

 

You kept me on the fringe

When I had so much to give

You kept me on the fringe

But I got so much life to live

So Bye Bye

 

I’m closing the door now its time for me to go now

You used me and abused me so now you will lose me

Cause I gave this 3 years and I got no more tears left for

You took my love but you had nothing to give so I’m closing the book of our love now

 

You left me with a broken heart, but I’m the one to blame

I gave you everything I had, its such a cryin shame

Now I’ll never be the same, you know what I mean

 

You kept me on the fringe

When I had so much to give

You kept me on the fringe

But I got so much life to live

So Bye Bye, bye bye

 

You skinny old bugger bye bye

Lyin', cheatin' bye bye

Good for nothin,  bye bye

BYE BYE!!

 

Let the door hit you on the way out

 

 

I Will Rise copyright 2017

 

All the layers of doubt, my soul always knew 

But I was blinded by love and compassion for you

You always said the right things, to keep me hangin on

You played a selfish game, my open heart was your pawn

 

And I was naïve, to believe

All you did was deceive

And you were just pretending

 

You’ll have to answer one day, I heard that when I prayed

God have mercy on your soul, when its time for you to go

 

And I was naïve, to believe

All you did was deceive

And you were just pretending

 

And I will rise and be stronger than before

And my heart will open once more

And all the lies, your selfish lies

And all the ways you made me cry

I forgive, so I might live

 

And I will rise and be stronger than before

And my heart will open once more

And now I finally see, the truth set me free

 

And I am not pretending, I am not pretending

I forgive, so I might live

I am free, I believe

I forgive, so I live

I forgive, I forgive

Now I live
