Song For My Father

Verse 1
You never knew me
I never knew you
Even though you were a part of my life
You never loved me
I never loved you
Even though we told each other we did
While I was growing up you abused me
I will never forgive you for beating me

Verse 2
You rarely provided for me
And our so-called family
Pride got in your way
So we had to make ends meet
I know we'll never be able to build a relationship
And quite frankly, that doesn't bother me

Verse 3
I honestly don't hate you
I'm just angry at you
What you did to me is what no child should ever go through
Good memories of you are few
Bad memories of you are plenty
Those are the ones I have been trying to forget

Chorus 1
Oh father, do you have regrets?
Oh father, did you ever love mom?
Oh father, do you see me as a disappointment?

Chorus 2
Oh father, I never want to be like you
Oh father, you were never my role model
Oh father, maybe someday I'll be able to forgive you

No Other Love

Verse 1
I was young and apathetic
I didn't care for anything in this world
Everything was about me
I always took and never gave anything in return
Then I met you and you became a part of my life
And soon I became a different person

Verse 2
I have since grown up
And I have realized that there is more to life
I spent too much time focusing on my wants
And focusing on my needs
I now live a simple life
What I don't have is what I can live without

Bridge
I am grateful for this love that has been given to me
In truth, it has saved my life
Even more time than I can count
I have come to appreciate the beauty of life and love

Chorus
There is no other love
That has brought life to me
I know it was sent from above
I would not be here without it
There's no doubt in my mind

Outro
There is no other love
No other love
There is no other love
No other love

One Life To Live

Verse 1
I want to laugh, want to cry
I want to smile, want to sigh
I want to run free like a child
Without a care in the world
I want to be somebody, want to feel alive
I want to touch someone's heart
Knowing what I can do
Brings me a sense of comfort, sense of purpose

Verse 2
I don't want to feel regretful
When I look back on my life
I want to be able to forgive others
Who have done me wrong
I also want to be forgiven

Bridge
I know life is unpredicatable
If I knew what would happen before it did
I would always be prepared
I would always be ready
But I wouldn't be living life

Chorus
Everyone has one life to live
Whether we like it or not
It's not up t us to know
When our time has come
But I am going to make the best of it
I will live life before I die

Perfect I'm Not

Verse 1
I curse and I lie
I steal and I cheat
I've been trying to change my ways
I'm rude and unfair
I'm crude and insensitive
I'm ignorant and judgemental

Verse 2
I get drunk and abusive
I am disloyal
I'm loud and insincere
I am uncaring and dismissive
I'm greedy and unfaithful

Verse 3
Some say I'm an a-s-s-h-o-l-e
Others say I'm a p-r-i-c-k
I have never taken their statements to heart
I am an opportunist
I want what I don't need
I hurt people intentionally

Chorus 1
Perfect I'm not
But would it make a difference if I was?
I have many flaws and shortcomings
But that's just the tip of the iceberg

Chorus 2
Perfect I'm not
But would it make a difference if I tried to be?
I have many flaws and shortcomings
I know I'm not the only one who does

Chorus 3
Perfect I'm not
And I'm always going to be that way
I have many flaws and shortcomings
Please, show me someone who doesn't

Chorus 4
Perfect I'm not
But that doesn't bother me at all
I have many flaws and shortcomings
I make mistakes day after day

Everything I Need

Verse 1
You make my heart beat
I'm able to breathe because of you
The strength you have given me
Is still within me
All my senses and faculties are in check

Verse 2
If you leave my heart won't beat
My lungs will shut down
I will be powerless, I'll have no defenses
My senses will be gone
My faculties will erode

Chorus 1
You are everything I need
I cannot afford to lose you
To survive, I depend on you
It might sound crazy but it's true
My heart will be broken
I will be torn apart
With you I know there are guarantees
Without you, there is nothing

Chorus 2
You are everything I need
I'll do my best to keep you here
To survive, I depend on you
I refuse to live without you
My heart will be broken
I may never love again
With you I know there are guarantees
Life will be unbearable without you

Chorus 3
You are everything I need
I cannot afford to lose you
To survive I depend on you
It might sound crazy but it's true
My heart will be broken
I will be torn apart

For A Song

Verse 1
What would you do for a song?
Would you go bungee jumping?
Would you ride a motorcycle
Even if you were scared to?
Would you spend a night in a cemetery?
Would you major in geography?

Verse 2
Would you go sky diving?
Would you take anger management?
Would you rekindle on old flame?
Would you quit a high-paying job?
Would you go against what you believe in?
Would you live a lie?

Verse 3
Would you fight to kill?
Would you stand up for your country?
Would you endorse corruption?
Would you shut your mouth and look away?

Bridge
Would you quit smoking?
Would you lose weight?
Would you stop hating others that are different from you?

Chorus
What would you do for a song?
Would you go and break the law?
What would you do for a song?
Would you kneel down and pray?

If I Can't Do It

Verse 1
If I can't do it
Will you offer to lend me a hand?
If I cannot speak my name
Will you represent me?
If I have no place to go
Will you invite me into your home?
If I'm distraught and lonely
Will you hesitate to comfort me?

Verse 2
If I forget something
Will you remind me of it?
If I am afraid
Will you reassure me that things are fine?
If I cannot think clearly
will you assist me to get by?
This world can be a dark, cold place
Especially when you are on your own

Verse 3
If my heart is broken
Will you attempt to mend it?
If I demand to know the truth
Will you always tell me?
If I can no longer see
Will you guide me along?
If I'm feeling worthless and ugly
Will you prove me wrong?

Chorus
I want to trust you
I want to confide in you
But I don't know if I should
I want to believe in you
But I don't want to be let down

Blood And Gold

Verse 1
I'm no angel, I'm not perfect
You always claim that you are
Well, you don't fool me anymore
I see beyond your lies
Just give up the act
There are only two things you love in this world
You live for blood, you live for gold
You never have given up the chance to acquire both
You easily become jealous
You're unbelievably greedy
You stake your territory and defend it to the end
You hate it when others get in your way

Verse 2
You think of people as your rivals
You come up with a plan of attack
You think every thing is a competition
You always set out to win
You can't accept defeat
You won't recognize failure
You are blatantly arrogant not to mention self-righteous

Chorus 1
Blood is like water to you
Gold is like food to you
You have a disturbing thirst of revenge
You love money more than you love yourself

Chorus 2
Blood is like water to you
And water is like revenge
Gold is like food to you
And food is like money
You need both to survive

Last Dance, Last Chance

Verse 1
This is your last dance with me
This is your last chance with me
You have to prove to me
That I'm the only one that you love
Forget about what others are saying
Forget about what others are thinking
Your friend may never like me
But at this point, that's irrelevant
Tell me that you love me
And you want to share your life with me

Verse 2
Prove to me that you love me
Hold me like you never want to let me go
Kiss me as if this is our last kiss
Cry as you see me walk away
There will be no moment like this
So you must make the best of it

Bridge
Tell me that you love me
And you want to share your life with me
There'll be no moment like this
So you must make the best of it

Chorus 1
Last dance, last chance
Don't waste a second of it or I will leave
What I want from you is an admission
Of your love for me
Only if it's true
Now, don't you lie to me

Chorus 2
Last dance, last chance
Don't waste a second of it or I'll make you leave
What I want from you is an admission
Of your love for me
Only if it's true

Beyond The Border

Verse 1
Beyond the border, there is a land
A land full of riches, a land full of fortune
Every citizen has rights
They all have freedoms
It is a supreme nation
It's a golden country

Verse 2
It's like I am on the outside looking in
I see things that I have always dreamt about
No one has to struggle to live
Life is always fair
The laws of the land are upheld
Justice is served

Chorus 1
Beyond the border is a life worth living
Beyond the border you are free to be
Beyond the border everyone is treated equally
I have always longed to be beyond the border

Chorus 1
Beyond the border is a life worth living
Beyond the border lies hope and faith
Beyond the border everyone is treated equally
Everyone I know longs to be beyond the border
