Declaration

Verse 1
I will always stay true to myself
You don't need to worry about me
I have a good head on my shoulder
I know what's important to me
I give more than what's expected of me

Verse 2
Sometimes life can be so simple
Other times, it can be hard
But I won't give up
I am determined to survive any way I can
Putting in effort is half of the battle

Bridge
I will continue to learn
I will never stop growing
I am a fighter
I've got what it takes to make it on my own
I'm so excited
I can't wait to venture out into the world

Chorus 1
I am me, I am free
To live my life as I choose
I know I will make mistakes
That is a part of maturing

Chorus 2
I am me, I am free
To be whomever I choose to be
I know I will make mistakes
That is a part of life

Psychocandy

Verse 1
I know that I am an average guy
I rarely stand out in a crowd
I tend to be quiet
Because I'm a little shy
Lately, I've been thinking of getting a makeover
I want to change my look, my style and my attitude
It would be great to feel like a different person
There is something that can transform me
Into someone new
It's in the form of a candy
All I have to do is swallow it

Verse 2
I want to fly higher than a kite
I want to be in state of pure happiness
I want to ride on a roller-coaster
I want to be the sexiest person in a room
I want everyone's attention to be focused on me
All of that will soon become a reality
Because there is something that can transform me
Into someone new
It's in the form of a candy
All I have to do is swallow it

Chorus 1
Psychocandy is what I want
I've heard a lot about it
And the changes it makes you go through
Being this sane is driving me off the wall
I need to get out of my skin for awhile

Chorus 2
I will become extraordinary
Everyone will want to be like me
I'll no longer be known as the guy next door
Every day would seem like a party, like a celebration
Soon it won't be just my imagination

I'm Still Here

Verse 1
You are certainly a handful
And you are definitely beautiful
Whenever we don't see eye to eye
We begin to agree

Verse 2
We engage in many battles
We use whatever we can find as weapons
We're trying to open up more
But you are still a little hesitant

Bridge
You like right to my face
You do many things behind my back
You manipulate situations for your own gain

Chorus 1
I'm still here, even to my surprise
Many told me to drop you like a hot potato
I chose to follow my heart, not my brain
I guess I love you more than I realized

Chorus 2
I'm still here, even to my surprise
Many told me to pack up and leave
I chose to always be with you
I guess I love you more than I realized

Chorus 3
I'm still here, even to my surprise
Many told me that I was wasting my time
I chose to have you as a part of my life
I guess I love you more than I realized

Baby It's You

Verse 1
What you and I feel for each other
Goes beyond an attraction
We have lasted longer than an infatuation
Our fire continues to burn
We're on a lifelong journey
And when we reach our destination
We'll be together
I adore you more and more each day
The best decision I ever made in my life
Is to be with you every day and night

Verse 2
When you let me hold you in my arms
I feel like your protector
Sometimes when I want to show
How special you are to me
I make love to you
The feeling of being intimate with you
Enables our love to grow each night
The best times that I have ever had in my life
Are the ones where you are by my side

Chorus 1
Baby, you're the only one I will ever want
Honey, you are the one I always need
Sugar, I love you with everything in me
Baby, my life is complete
Because you are a part of it

Chorus 2
Baby, you're the only one I will ever want
Sweetie, I could never live without you
Oh, how I love you with everything in me
Baby, my life is worth living
Because you are a part of it

Bridges To Nowhere

Verse 1
When I was younger
My future seemed so bright
That it would light my eyes up
I loved the feeling of anticipation
As I grew older
I couldn't wait until my dreams came true
I lost track of what was important
Repeating my mistakes were common

Verse 2
I have had a lot of time
To analyze myself and and my actions
The conclusion that I came to
Was that I didn't take responsibility for my life
The regret I have is something I can't bear to feel
I'm too ashamed to look at myself in the mirror

Bridge 1
The pain that I'm feeling is burning inside me
It's taking over me
And I don't know how to put it out

Bridge 2
I am walking on bridges to nowhere
My feet are the part of my body
That hurt the least
I no longer know where my destination is

Chorus 1
I am walking on bridges to nowhere
I always thought that I'd be somewhere
Anywhere but here
But I've lost my direction

Chorus 2
I am walking on bridges to nowhere
I always thought that I'd be somewhere
Anywhere but here
But I've lost my direction
I am a stranger to myself
I have become a lost cause

Everything

Verse 1
You have captured my heart
I no longer suppress my emotions
And you get my attention
I put you first ahead of anyone

Verse 2
You can try to push me away
But no matter what you do
I am here to stay
If you should ever stop loving me
I will get down on my knees
And begin to plead

Verse 3
With you, I will give my all
In anything that is large or small
You will never regret meeting me
I know that I'm the only man you need

Bridge
I'm prepared for a lifelong commitment
Cutting and running is what I don't do

Chorus
I will be everything to you
That's my promise to you
I will be everything to you
I am ready and willing

Dangerous Touch

Verse 1
Snakes slither across the ground
And she is certainly one of them
If you think that minding your business
Is going to keep you safe from her
You are sadly mistaken
Being on high alert is imperative
It could be the key to your survival
But with her around, nothing is guaranteed

Bridge 1
Her fangs are sharp and long
She won't hesitate to eat you alive
Her insatiable hunger is rarely defeated

Verse 2
Looks can be deceiving
You cannot trust anything she does
If you think that running away
Is going to keep you safe from her
You are foolishly mistaken
Looking over your shoulder should be second nature
It could be the key to your survival
But with her around, nothing is guaranteed

Bridge 2
Her hissing is quietly frightening
She won't hesitate to eat you alive
Her unsatisfied desire is difficult to combat

Bridge 3
Her eyes are dark and wide
She won't hesitate to eat you alive
Her poisonous behaviour is unalterable

Chorus
She is so hot but has a dangerous touch
She really hates you
But will tell you she loves you very much
She will manipulate any situation to her advantage
Make sure she never gets a hold on you

Have A Good Time

Verse 1
You told me that you were leaving
That you were going far away
I understand why
Even though I do not want you to go
Many things will change
You won't be here to experience them with me
But I will not be the one
To hold you back for any reason

Bridge 1
I want you to live your life to the fullest
Wherever that may be
If you should ever get lonely
Just think of wonderful thoughts of you and me

Verse 2
I respect your decision
Even though I do not agree with it
I've asked you to reconsider
But you have already made up your mind

Bridge 2
I want you to be as happy
As you deserve to be
Wherever you are
If you should ever become scared
Just think of caring thoughts of you and me

Bridge 3
I want you to be safe and healthy
Because you deserve to be
If you should ever forget about me
Just think of the love that I have for you

Chorus 1
Have a good time
Don't get into trouble
Remember who you are, stay true to yourself
Enjoy every moment, don't take anything for granted
I'll always be with you wherever you go

Chorus 2
Have a good time
Don't get into trouble
Remember who you are, stay true to yourself
Enjoy every moment, don't take anything for granted
I'll always be with you wherever you go
Because I love you so

All Over The Place

Verse 1
When I wake up in the morning
I am sad
When I arrive at work, I am mad
Sometimes I am bad
I've been this way for as long as I can remember
This is who I am

Verse 2
I will congratulate you on your achievements
Then I will show jealousy towards you
What a contradiction
I've been this way for as long as I can remember
This is who I am

Bridge
Sometimes I know where I am
Other times I'm confused
Frustration takes hold of me
Then I go deeper into an emotional void
It is like a storm, I just have to ride it out

Chorus
My emotions are all over the place
If I'm angry, I may shout in your face
One day I might want to be left alone
Then the very next day I'll seek attention

I Feel For You

Verse 1
Many things are mysterious, many things are unexplainable
When I first met you
I fell in love at that very moment
I looked into your eyes
And your beautiful soul revealed itself
The love I felt for you
Was so grand, it was unconditional

Verse 2
When you are not in my company
I begin to long for you
And when I get the chance to see you
It feels as though time is standing still
Sometimes I know what you'll say
Even before you utter a word
And when you are in physical pain
I can feel it in my body as well

Bridge
I know that nothing is perfect
But I feel that our bond is enduring
True love lives in the hearts of believers
You are the only one for me

Chorus 1
I feel for you, I really do
I'm connected to what you go through
I am like your shadow
Because I'm always there to help you
I sense that I know you so well
Like I've been with you since you were born
You seem to be the one who was made for me

Chorus 2
I feel for you, I really do
I'm connected to what you go through
I am like your shadow
Because I'm always there to help you
I feel for you

You are so beautiful, you are intelligent
You are very funny
You are kind and generous
Time with you is magical
My problems vanish from my mind
It's a wonderful feeling that I always remember

Verse 2
You are so exciting, you are gentle
You are very lovely
You are very special to me
I appreciate every moment we spend together
It's a wonderful feeling
That I hope to share with you

Bridge
Every detail that occurs when I'm with you
Doesn't escape me
The sound and the smell of you
Is embedded within me
I'm convinced that I have fallen in love with you

Chorus 1
All I wanna do is to be with you
Every day and every week
All I wanna do is to love you
Every month and every year
Until the end of time

Chorus 2
All I wanna do is to be with you
Every day and every week
All I wanna do is to love you

Imagine

Verse 1
Imagine buying a lottery ticket
Then finding out you won a million bucks
You would feel like you're on the top of the world
As you jump up and down
As you go out of your mind
Imagine being diagnosed with a disease
All the while knowing that there's no cure
You would feel like you're at the bottom of the world
As you arrive home, you burst out in tears

Bridge 1
In this life, anything can happen
But don't be afraid of living
Good things will come and go
Nothing ever last forever

Verse 2
Imagine being forgiven for the bad things you've done
And forgiving someone who has done you wrong
We are capable of so much more
I still can't understand what all this fighting is for

Bridge 2
In this life, anything can happen
But don't be afraid of living
All things will come to pass
Nothing ever last forever

Bridge 3
In this life, anything can happen
But don't be afraid of living
We are all in this together
Nothing ever last forever

Chorus
Imagine al of your dream coming true
And magic being real
Imagine your nightmares haunting you
And you always being fearful
Imagine all suffering ceasing to exist
And everyone has what they truly need
Imagine you completely loving yourself
Imagine you sharing that love with someone else

All Heated Up

Verse 1
Every night at this time
There is only one thing that is on my mind
And that is to beat the heat
I'm dripping in sweat as the temperature rises
I'm trying real hard to hold onto my strength
Any moment now I feel like I will collapse
Ice is what I desperately need
But that is not the only thing
I need you as well

Verse 2
If measures are not taken immediately
I will erupt like a volcano
Lava will be the least of my concerns
Cold air is what I desperately need
But that is not the only thing
I need you as well

Chorus 1
I am all heated up, I am boiling
My body is fighting off a fever
My addiction to you has no cure
The only way to cool me down
Is to satisfy my urge
The longer I wait, the hotter I get

Chorus 2
I am all heated up, I am boiling
My body is fighting off a fever
My addiction to you has no cure
The only way to cool me down
Is to satisfy my urge
The longer I wait, the hotter I get
This heatwave of mine is already precarious

Chorus 3
If I'm not careful, I will burst out in flames
Fire will consume every inch of me
My addiction to you has no cure
The only way to cool me down
Is to satisfy my urge

Big Brother Is Watching You

Verse 1
You are never alone at any time
Somebody, somewhere knows what you're doing
You will never hear them
Because they are spying on you from afar
Every word that you say is being listened to

Verse 2
1984 is a dreadful reality
You can't escape it by being in a daydream
Don't surrender what you need
God help you is you do, you will be helpless
Brainwashing is no longer science fiction

Bridge
Music is nothing if the audience is deaf
Clean the wax from your ears
Be bold and mighty
For evil forces are trying to control you

Chorus
Big brother is watching you
Open your eyes and wake up right now
All of your rights are eroding
Stop the trend once and for all
Tell everyone you know to do the same

This One's For You

Verse 1
When I was lonely, you were my company
When I was scared, you were my bodyguard
When I was sad, you would cheer me up
When I was lost, you guided me along

Verse 2
Life dragged me down, deep into the ground
You taught me that many things come around
I learned a lot from you
All the advice you gave will be put to use

Bridge
Being there for me meant that you cared for me
I appreciate the sacrifices you made
I look up to you and see you as my hero
I don't say this often, but I love you

Chorus 1
This one's for you
It's my way of saying thank you
For what you've done for me
I am able to strive
To be the best I can be
Because you never gave up on me

Chorus 2
This one's for you
It's my way of saying thank you
For what you've done for me
I am able to strive
To be the best I can be
Because you saw the potential in me

I'm In You

Verse 1
I was full of life
I was outgoing and smart
My future seemed so bright
Then one day that all tragically changed
I was killed in a car crash
Thankfully before I died
I took the time to sign my donor card

Verse 2
Many people have a second chance
To live out their lives
Because of me and my generosity
It's the best decision I ever made
The thought of helping others in need
Is what led me to do what I did

Bridge
I do miss the life I lived
But my time to leave had arrived
I was meant to save all those people that I saved
My smile lights up in a baby's face
My lungs enable a young man to breathe
My heart beats in the chest of its recipient
The gist of lie has been given to them

Chorus 1
You have a little bit of my personality
And you have my charisma
Even though my body no longer functions
Parts of me continue to be alive
Luckily for you, I'm in you

Chorus 2
You have a little bit of my personality
And you have my charisma

Make Me Happy, Make Me Sad

Verse 1
Make me happy, make me sad
Make me good, make me bad
Start a trend, start a fad
Whatever it is, it shouldn't make me go mad
When you talk to me, I am glad
Though some people think I am a cad
I never thought about being a dad
I guess I won't because I gad

Verse 2
There are many things that I wished I had
Like an abacus to teach me how to add
While growing up I was a quiet lad
When I misbehaved I was hit with a pad
One of my favourite shows is called JAG
The lead character is Commander Harmon Rabb
As I grow older, my skin begins to sag
Under my eyes I hope I don't get bags

Verse 3
In one of my dreams I was named Tad
It might have been because I was reading an ad
In another dream I was nicknamed Dag
Many people don't like the word ***
A comedian must perform a funny gag
You should always stay away from a hag
Something which is painful is a jab
If you experience it, just call a cab

Chorus
Make me happy, make me sad
Let me be able to show emotions
There is no other way for me to do so
If I am wrong, kindly let me know

Sad Without You

Verse 1
I am sad without you
Be with me and make me happy again
I don't have any fun
Parties are suppose to consist of more than one
I just can't smile
The warmth of you no longer surrounds me

Verse 2
You brought life into my world
And I was able to breathe
You watched out for me
The strength of you was my personal shield

Verse 3
The pain has yet to numb my body
I don't know if it ever will
You can turn things around for me

And there's not much I can do
To make you return to me
Being alone is worse than I thought

Johnny, Come Home

Verse 1
I'm sorry for treating you like a kid
Sometimes I would talk down to you
Respecting you is what I should have done
I didn't take your feelings into account
I hope you can find a way to forgive me
I am truly sorry

Verse 2
I'm sorry for yelling at you
When you upset me, I got angry
There are many reasons
Why I want you here with me
You are like the brother I never had
That is the honest truth

I'm the only one who loves you
That's one of the things I can give to you
If you let me have a second chance

Expecting More

Verse 1
Looking at you, I would assume that you're good in bed
You have a hot and mysterious look
I forgot that looks were deceiving
There were no fireworks when we did it last night

Verse 2
I hope that you perform well this time
Do not stop until I go out of my mind
Use your lips, use your tongue
Get down on your knees and satisfy me completely

Bridge
You let me down the other night
I became frustrated
I need to release some s-e-x-u-a-l tension
You have the opportunity to fulfil my fantasies
Missionary or doggy style - I will let you choose this time around

Chorus
I am expecting more from you
I want you to rock me out of this world
Three times over
I was disappointed the last time
You have to step up to the challenge
Cover all the bases and hit a home run

Unison

Verse 1
Life is so much better
Knowing that you are by my side
I feel comfortable around you
There's no reason to run and hide
I tell you what I'm thinking about
You show me how you're feeling
I give you time and comfort
You show understanding and compassion
When I wake up in the morning
You are the first thought on my mind
That is the best part of my day

Verse 2
To me, you are many things
My soul mate, my honey, my baby
I place my trust in you
Knowing that I can count on you
My imagination runs wild
Just thinking about you and I
There is nothing that we can't do
That's how much I believe in us
Whenever I'm away from home
You are the only thought on my mind
That is how much I miss you

Bridge
You have saved me from a life of loneliness
And I have inspired you to reach your potential

Chorus 1
We are in unison
I know what you want
You give me what I need
There is nothing that I would change about us
I like it when you look at me
You tell me that I'm beautiful
You are my protector keeping me safe and secure
We are in unison
I love you and you love me

Chorus 2

Under Suspicion

Verse 1
Privacy no longer exist for me
My life is like an open book
Everything that I do is monitored and analyzed
Whether I like it or not
I'm afraid of doing something wrong
If I do, I will be punished

Verse 2
Sometimes I know exactly when they are staring at me
I can feel their presence
Even when they're not in the same room as me
When I go to sleep
I'm almost afraid of even dreaming

Bridge
I've been accused of breaking the law
I know that I have done no such thing
Nobody believes me when I tell them
I'm even starting to think that I'm guilty

Chorus 1
I know that I'm under suspicion
Every move I make is being watched closely
Every single word that I utter is being listened to
I'm living under a microscope

Chorus 2
I know that I'm under suspicion
Many of my freedoms are limited
This nightmare is lasting longer than I thought
Clearing my name seems to be impossible

Verse 1
Tomorrow will come
And all of your worries will be confronted
And all of your tears will evaporate

Tomorrow will be better than today
Because you will make it that way
All of your anger will be healed
And all of your discomfort will cease to exist

Bridge
You will overcome the pain that you're feeling
And you will be able to embrace life with open arms
Start believing that you are meant to live
Because you are

When you're at the bottom, you feel like dying
You're confused, sad, and lonely

So just hang on

Out of The Blue

Verse 1
As long as I could remember
I was mostly sad
I would cry out for no apparent reason
When I wasn't alone, I felt lonely
When friends wanted to hang out
I avoided their company

Verse 2
I felt like I was carrying the weight of the world
It bogged me down deeper into the ground
Sometimes I would fear for my life
Because I was afraid that I would end it
Other times I didn't have an ounce of self-love

Bridge
I can feel myself breathe
I can think clearly
Nobody knows what I went through
If they did, they would be surprised
I can't even believe it myself

Chorus 1
I am out of the blue
Suddenly I found something new
Something that I didn't know
It was hidden away a long time ago
The brightness that permeates around me
Overshadows the darkness that filled my heart

Chorus 2
I am out of the blue
I've become someone new
There is now light in my life

Some Girls

Verse 1
Some girls want daddy's attention
Some girls need his affection
They yearn and strive for both
But they are neglected
Some girls act out in the worst way
With drugs, sex, and alcohol
Throw in a bit of rock and roll
And that is the worst mix
Some girls wish that they were still a child
Because they can't handle the pressure of being a teenager

Verse 2
Some girls think that they are fat
Some girls think they're ugly
The media ans society present false body images
Some develop eating disorders
Some exercise to the extreme
And some commit suicide
Thinking that's the solution
Some girls wish that they had a friend
Because there is no one that they can relate to
That they can confide in

Bridge
Some girls wish that they could just be happy
Some girls wish that they were seen as being normal
Some girls just want to live

Chorus 1
Some girls end up on the streets
Selling themselves for money
They get into a cycle of abuse
And have a hard time getting out
Some are damaged beyond repair
Some need to be saved from themselves
They are tired and scared, they are lonely
Some don't know where to turn for help
Some of these girls might have been an acquaintance to you
Some of these girls might even be related to you

Chorus 2
Some girls end up on the streets
Selling themselves for money
They get into a cycle of abuse
And have a hard time getting out
Some are damaged beyond repair
Some need to be saved from themselves
They are tired and scared, they are lonely
Some don't know where to turn for help
Some of these girls might have been an acquaintance to you
Some of these girls might even be related to you
Some of these girls work with you every day
Some of these girls go to church
And kneel down and pray for a better life

Hard To Be Good

Verse 1
Sometimes it's hard for me to be good
When people get in my face, I lose my temper
I try to be a better person
And whenever I am not, I try again
Up until this point, I have yet to succeed

Verse 2
Sometimes I take things that aren't mine
And if I don't return them
It's because I lost them
I talk behind people's back
I say negative things about them
Some are even lies
Maybe that's why I don't have any friends

Bridge
Improving myself is what I'm trying to do
But it is harder than I thought
Being mean is part of me
Causing trouble is what I do
Being good is what I've never been

Chorus 1
It is hard for me to be good
Because it's easier to be rude
I am shy bordering on anti-social
I'm working on being more approachable
It's a continuous process

Chorus 2
It is hard for me to be good
Because it's easier to be rude
I am shy bordering on anti-social
I'm working on being more approachable
It's a never ending process

Imagination

Verse 1
Imagination, sweet imagination
During the day I get lost in my mind
Hours go by with thoughts in my head
I know I should be doing work instead
But I feel so good whenever I'm dreaming

Verse 2
Imagination, cool imagination
During the evening I dance upon the stars
Hours go by with thoughts in my head
I know I should be sleeping instead
But I feel so lucky whenever I'm dreaming
Imagination, wonderful imagination
I am inspired to try something new
Hours go by with thoughts in my bed
I know I should be with friends instead
But I feel so blessed whenever I'm dreaming

Bridge
I close my eyes, then visions appear in my mind
Some are so clear that they seem very real to me
I'm walking on clouds, swimming with the dolphins
Or spending my time with you
Imagination takes me on an unforgettable journey

Chorus
I am taken far away to a magical place
And I hope that you'll join me sooner or later
You don't know what I'm going through
When I'm thinking about you
Sometimes I would even forget just where I am
I can take a trip around the world
Then fly to the moon
I can do anything with imagination

Out of Control

Verse 1
The other day you made fun of me
Your attitude was disrespectful
So I walked to your car
With a baseball bat in hand
I took a swing and smashed your headlights
You knew I had done it
So you called the police
A week after that I was feeling like a dog in heat
I had to deposit my load before I went crazy
I went searching for an attractive person
Who was more than willing to get me off
I found that person I was looking for
And we did the deed
Hot and raw as if we were animals

Verse 2
On occasion you curse like a sailor
That's only if you're really pissed off
The other times you are mean and crass
Speaking your mind is what you always do
You don't care about the people you hurt
You don't realize that your words are like weapons
They maim and they injure
They jab and they cut
It's like you're fighting a battle against everyone
You feed off arguments
To you, it's a source of energy
Your words do more harm than good

Bridge
Why can't I have more control?
Why can't I be more stable?
Why can't you have more control?
Why can't you be more responsible?
Why can't we have more control?
Why can't we have more power over our actions?
I am out of control
You are out of control

Chorus
I am out of control
I do whatever I want whenever I want
You are out of control
You say whatever you want whenever you want
Ways to reclaim control take awhile
And we are impatient

Together Again

Verse 1
The last time that I saw you
You had a smile on your face
And a twinkle in your eyes
I didn't forget the way you looked
Since you left, I had been tired
I had been broken
The only thing that I wanted was to be with you

Verse 2
The last time that you saw me
I had a smile on my face
And a twinkle in my eyes
I hope that you didn't forget about me
Since I left, you had been unhappy
You had been lonely
The only person that you needed was me

Bridge
This is the moment I've been waiting for
We are together again

Chorus
We are together again
And we vow to never separate
We spent too much time apart
And now we are reconnecting
I feel like a new person
When you are in my arms
Now that I have found you
I will not let you go

I Want To Tell You

Verse 1
Every time when you show affection to me
I turn you away saying that I'm not in the mood
I always thin that I am better than you
Understanding your feelings is complicating and exhausting

Verse 2
Pushing you away is like slapping you in the face
And putting you down is like kicking you in the gut
I am hurting inside, I want you to feel the same way
Withholding many things from you is what I have always done
I find it hard to trust you

Bridge
Half of me is consumed with anger
The other half remains despondent
I don't know how to give you what you need
Without being the person that I am

Chorus
I want to tell you
That I don't love you
Even though I said I did
I want to tell you
That I don't want to be with you
Even though I promised that I would
I want to tell you so many things

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

Chorus

Your days and nights with me
Show me who you are inside
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
