Change My Life

Verse 1
I spoke with you every day
I confided in you
Then when bad things happened to me
I blames you for causing them
I wanted you to fix all my problems
And when you couldn't, I was disappointed
I thought that you no longer loved me
So I began to act out
Many of my actions led me into trouble
And I take full responsibility for each of them

Verse 2
I was told to never forget about the past
And I was told to always remember my mistakes
Being the stubborn person that I was
I did the opposite of what I was told
I have so many regrets about myself
And the way that I treated others
I realize that what I did was wrong
And I have apologized to those involved
Now I'm asking for your forgiveness
You are the one that I have hurt the most

Bridge
The time came for me to start living again
Being closer to you is what I intend to do
I was wasting time just by being selfish
Your love for me is what I need to acknowledge
I'm placing my life in your hands
With you, I can change my life

Chorus
I need your help to change my life
That is why I've turned to you
I know that I have pushed you away
I was ashamed of you
I am truly sorry for the pain I have inflicted
And for all the lies I have told
I have committed myself to being a better person
Because I want to change my life

If you want to be with me
You've got to earn it

We Want Freedom

Verse 1
We want freedom
We're tired of being oppressed
And we won't stop until we achieve it
This war, oh this war is killing us daily
And soon enough we will cease to exist
We're no longer afraid of speaking our minds
Years of silence have done us no good
Propaganda will not deter us
We've formed an army of resistance

Verse 2
We want a future
Dictated by our needs and by our wants
We're tired of being slaves
This illusion, oh this illusion is undermining our potential
And soon enough we will cease to think
We're no longer afraid of standing up for ourselves
Years of inaction have led to regression
Obstacles and challenges will not deter us
We've formed a union of truth-seekers

Verse 3
We started a movement
The cause is just and moral
It will spread like a wildfire
This life, oh this life, is a gift for us to cherish
And soon enough we won't take it for granted
We're no longer afraid of being imperfect
Years of trying not to be have left us with nothing
Sins and misdemeanors will not deter us
We've formed a bond with the Almighty

Chorus 1
We have been down but we're far from out
We have been low with no place to go
After all the fear mongering and control
We want freedom

Chorus 2
We have been down but we're far from out
We have been low with no place to go
After all the madness and intimidation
We want freedom

Let Me Be Brave

Verse 1
I am shy and quiet
I have always been that way
That's why I want to be more outgoing
Talking amongst others is something I rarely do
I feel I don't have much to say
I avoid many people who want to be close to me
My anti-social behaviour is an impediment to forming friendships

Verse 2
I always have my guard up
I am afraid to reveal who I am inside
Rejection is something I don't handle too well
Sometimes I feel unworthy of being loved
That's when I get very low
There are many things that I have yet to recognize in myself
I am more of a stranger in my own life than I realized

Bridge
Inspire me with hope to solve any obstacle
To always be truthful with the way that I'm feeling
I do not want to run anymore - I'm tired
I want to use every breath I take
To live out my dreams
Allow me the chance to be brave
And I will be courageous
I am more than willing to accept your help

Chorus 1
Let me be brave
I want to face any challenge
I want to be able to stand my ground
And not cave into fear
I want to overcome the many roadblocks in my mind
I want confidence to grow within me
And to have belief in my abilities to be strong

Chorus 2
Let me be brave
I want to face any challenge
I want to be able to stand my ground
And not cave into fear
I want to overcome the many roadblocks in my mind
I want confidence to grow within me
And to have belief in my abilities to be strong
Let me be brave
And I promise that I will always be

Nowhere To Hide

Verse 1
The tone of the voices are getting louder
My heart is beating faster
I'm breaking out in a sweat
Because I've got nowhere to hide
Accusations are being made
The truth is becoming harder to believe
Many eyes are staring at me
I am really nervous

Verse 2
The holes I've looked into are filled up
The doors that I've looked at are locked
There is no place for me to get away
From the constant attention I receive
I can't even get into a box
Without them knowing where I am
Invisibility may not be real
But I'm hoping that it helps my situation

Bridge
I have nowhere to hide
I have nothing to call my refuge
I have nowhere to hide
I just can't seem to disappear

Chorus
Everywhere I go, strangers know who I am
I haven't the slightest clue as to who they are
Everything I do is mentioned to everyone
I haven't the slightest clue as to why that is
Running from this life of mine is what I can't do
Because I have nowhere to hide

Cold Heart

Verse 1
I get jealous when you look at other guys
Maybe you wish you could hook up with them
Your wandering eye has 20/20 vision
At times I'd wish you'd go blind
I get angry when you lie to me
Maybe you think you could get away with anything
Your lying mouth gets dirtier every day
At times I'd wish you were mute

Verse 2
I get selfish when you spend time on your own
Maybe you wish you could leave me
My actions are well planned out
Everything that I do is done for a reason
I get mean and rude when I spend time with you
That's one of the many punishments I have for you
My actions are performed very well
Everything I say is analyzed before it's said

Bridge
I push you around
I make you do things that you don't want to do
Giving ultimatums is a form of testing
To see how far you can go
I am demanding and persistent
Do as I say
I'm not your friend, I'm not your lover
You are beneath me

Chorus
I can be as cold as ice
Destructive and unforgiving
Deceitful and bent on revenge
The longer you stay with me
You'll feel my cold heart

As You Make Your Way

Verse 1
A long time ago many people suffered
Many people strived and many people thrived
They tried their best to overcome challenges
They lived life one day at a time
By sacrificing so much for you

Verse 2
The wind, the rain and the snow
Were unbearable at times
There wan't much that they could do about it
Except to get down on their knees and pray
Because of their determination and strength
You are free to live the life you choose
They fought hard for things that you take for granted

Bridge
A step in time is a form of clarity
It enables one to put things into perspective
Life is a gift that should be cherished
The people of yesterday understood that very well

Chorus 1
As you make your way through life
Always remember those who have came before you
Give everything you've got to make a difference
Because they did the same for you
They loved you

Chorus 2
As you make your way through life
Always appreciate those who have came before you
Give everything you've got to make a difference
Because they did the same for you
They loved you, they lived for you
They died for you

Chorus 3
As you make your way through life
Always remember those who came before you
Give everything you've got to make a difference
Because they did the same for you
They loved you, they lived for you
They died for you
What they went through should be celebrated

Fly

Verse 1
We can have wings to help us fly through the sky
We can spread them wide and go on a journey
We can soar and we can glide
We have the energy to touch the clouds
Ans we have the confidence to venture out on our own
It is up to is to us to make our dreams come true
So when we fly they will seem just as real

Verse 2
Flap your wings and fly through the sky
Spread them wide and go on an adventure
You can travel to any place
You no longer needs your imagination
Use every ounce of courage to overcome your fears
And the faith that you have
Shall sustain you through troubled times
When you fly, the possibilities are endless

Verse 3
Your wings will make you fly higher than anyone
You have the ability to believe
You can achieve your aspirations
Joy and happiness are just around the corner
Open your eyes and you will realize that you have been blessed
You have been given an opportunity
To be all that you can be
When you fly, goodness is within you

Chorus 1
Fly through the sky
Go soaring, go gliding
Reach out and feel the brightness of the sun
You have been given this moment to cherish

Chorus 2
Fly through the sky
Go soaring, go gliding
Reach out and feel the brightness of the sun
You have been given this moment to cherish
So fly through the sky and be yourself

Low

Verse 1
My family has disowned me
My friends ignore me, they have deserted me
I am all alone in a world that's so big and scary
Strangers pass me by and I wonder what kind of life they're living
I wonder if they recognize the sadness in my eyes

Verse 2
Acquaintances are ashamed of me
They are embarrassed to even look at me
I am all alone in a world that's so big and scary
I dream about many things but wonder if they'll ever come true
I wonder if I'll ever be happy again

Bridge
As the world keeps turning, I feel even smaller
Like I do not matter at all
I have been pushed aside
I have been walked upon
I have been called almost everything imaginable under the sun
I still remember generosity and kindness
I long for hope and love
To free me from the feeling of being low

Chorus
I am feeling low
I have nowhere to go
Nobody to call my own
I cry myself to sleep
In the morning, I don't want to get out of bed
Every day I am in pain

Ready To Catch Him Should He Fall

Verse 1
When I first met him
I thought that I already knew him
Unbeknownst to him, we weren't strangers
We shared many things in common
We had the same interests
He was like my other half that made me whole

Verse 2
My destiny is in his eyes
He is always on my mind
My courage is in his heart
He is the only one I trust
My sanity stems from his devotion for me
He is everything to me
And for that I am thankful (thankful)

Verse 3
I have been told that true love is hard to find
In my case, it was standing right in front of me
I guess you can say that I am one of the lucky ones
Because I have someone who truly cares for me (for me)

Chorus 1
I'm ready to catch him should he fall
I'm ready to stand by his side
I'm ready to be a part of his life
I'm ready to love him

Chorus 2
I'm ready to catch him should he fall
I'm ready to be there for him
I'm ready to be his best friend
I'm ready for him to love me
I'm ready to love him
I'm ready to catch him should he fall
