Tell me lord where did we go wrong?
Is this the revelation of your master plan?
Tell me lord ‘cause if this true
How will we ever find our way back to you?

Spoken... [It’s your life, your choice, now hear my voice]

You were born of love, but bred in hatred
Becoming the very thing that you once hated
You are bitter and cross with your wretched life
You neglect your kids and beat up on your wife

You are enraged. You have blood in your eyes
Telling the world how you have been victimized
You blame all but yourself for your situation
And you waste your life, smoking and drinking

I ask you “what have you done to improve your sorry life?”
Except threatening others with your many guns and your knives
You say you were born poor, hence your life of crime
Yet your refuse to work an honest job and develop your mind

You murder and maim without hesitation
Feeling mighty on your journey to self-destruction
But friend it’s only time ‘til you are measured against the many
For your time will come, just as well as any

Tell me lord where did we go wrong?
Is this the revelation of your master plan?
Tell me lord ‘cause if this true?
How will we ever find our way back to you?

Spoken... [It’s your life, your choice, now hear my voice]

You ask me “how can you bleed when you’ve already bled?”
You ask “how can you die when you’re already dead?”
You say you are GOD, but I’ll give it to you on the level
How can you be GOD when you’re playing the devil?

One day you’ll be alone, who’s going to save you then
When your friends become your enemies and your life’s at end
So now you’re all alone, who’s going to save you now
Now that your peeps, your homies, your posse, your crew are all but gone

You cry “Dear god forgive me for the things I’ve done”
Now that you’re look down the barrel of a fully loaded gun
You the merciless now begs for mercy, replay the tape that’s in your mind
Did you show that child some mercy when you carried out your heinous crime?

Rewind and play the tape again, does the situation appear the same?
Now that the shoe is on the other foot and you the hunter is the game
How many ghosts have you created, was it ten or was it twelve?
When you felt you had the need to test if your gun was working well

Look at your life look where it’s going; look at the path you chose to take
Look at the fatherless children you created in the passage of your wake
How will they eat? Where will they live? Who will keep them safe and warm?
Who will love them? Who will protect them? Who will keep them from all harm?

Tell me lord where did we go wrong?
Is this the revelation of your master plan?
Tell me lord ‘cause if this true?
How will we ever find our way back to you?

Spoken... [It’s your life, your choice, now hear my voice]

You have to change your path even though the journey’s long
You got to keep the faith, believe and stay strong
You have to be hopeful and work towards the better
Be resilient, be confident, be a go-getter

I tell you great men actions are exemplary to us all
Great men may yield but they will never fall
They are never forgotten, these men deserve praise
They stand forever admired and revered for their ways

Be a great man, and as with all great men in history
Be measured by your mettle and handling of adversities
Nothing may come easy; I’ll admit that much is true
But good will conquer evil in whatever you do

And please remember, you have the right to choose
The freedom to win and the freedom to lose
Yes it’s your right; let your choice be clear
And shout it from the mountaintop for all to hear

So choose life, because you will always win
No more systematic failure release your power within
Seek and find the light at the end of the road
For where there’s hope you’ll find a friend to help you carry the load
[Hook…softly in the background while the last two verse are said]
{Tell me lord where did we go wrong?
Is this the revelation of your master plan?
Tell me lord ‘cause if this true?
How will we ever find our way back to you?}

And remember your dreams can still come true
But you’ve got to trust in yourself and believe in you
Take heed it’s not as simple as I make it sound
But the beauty of a lost soul is that it can always be found

And if you have that sense of purpose then your path is clear
And you can travel on your road with no remorse or fear
You can travel on your road with no remorse or fear
So go travel on your road with no remorse or fear


Spoken... [It’s your life, your choice, now let me hear your voice]

It’s your life, your choice

I can make you fly
Higher than the highest high
You need not ask why
As your passion soar through the sky
On your clouds of white
Taking you to higher heights
Your thoughts blown out of sight
On your euphoric flight

This is rapture, a thrill an uncontrollable emotion
Spontaneous expression of my personal devotion of you
And that’s a total symphony
There’s no better tune that can beat this melody

Hey bae, this is a proposition
Not a pseudo, pretense, a sham or false impression
Let me take you to the highest of high of ecstasy
You are Cleo, and I am Antony

And like a geographer, to the features of a region
Let me study the contours of your bodily dimension
And bae you won’t be sorry
But elated, contented, yes that’s being happy

Let’s become intertwined and then we’ll copulate
As one being, one body, one soul and one state
And as we go through the motions
You be sighing and screaming in lover’s expression, of love
And you’ll be calling out my name
This is reality, a fantasy, but not a game

I can make you fly
Higher than the highest high
You need not ask why
As your passion soar through the sky
On your clouds of white
Taking you to higher heights
Your thoughts blown out of sight
On your euphoric flight

You’ll then squeeze me so tight as you’re about to learn
What is meant to be at the point of no return
Then like a comma, we’ll pause suspended in time
Ecstasy explodes like the Fourth of July

You’ll be in daze, my moves will amaze
Your mind, your thoughts, your every gaze
Then I’ll kiss you so tender and oh so deep
As you silently drift away in a heavenly sleep
When you awake we’ll do it once again
And we’ll do it, as if the world was coming to an end
The first time was so sweet
When we were fused together locked up in our bodily heat

But this time get ready to fly
As you’ll soar up higher than heavenly high
And as you float back down to earth once more
You’ll feel loved, for ever more

I can make you fly
Higher than the highest high
You need not ask why
As your passion soar through the sky
On your clouds of white
Taking you to higher heights
Your thoughts blown out of sight
On your euphoric flight

I can make you fly

Stop. Be quiet, you don’t know what I am capable of
But I know you too well and you are incapable of love
You may think that I have fallen for you ‘cause I am down on bended knees
But this is my praying position and I am begging the lord please, please, please
(Pause)
(Spoken) Deliver me from you

My sun stopped smiling; you turned my summer grey
And my heart got broken; my mind’s as hard as clay
You sucked my life out dry, like a raging vampire
I am so drained, feels like I am about to expire
But, I love you…
(Pause)
…No I don’t

You’re like a demon from hell, and your body’s hot like its fire
But your heart’s so cold, yet it is you I desire
I am so damned confused, my thoughts are on overload
And my hearts so shot like it’s about to explode
Still, I love you
(Pause)
…No I don’t

You’re eyes so beautiful, penetrating and rude
And your lips so soft, velvety and smooth
And your touch so tender, almost if you can care
And your voice utter words that I want to hear
And so I think I love you
(Pause)
…No I don’t

Shut up and be quiet, you don’t know what I am capable of
But I know you too well and you are incapable of love
You may think that I have fallen for you ‘cause I am down on my knees
But this is my praying position and I am begging the lord please, please, please
(Pause)
(Spoken) Deliver me from you


Your beauty is rivalled only by your reflection
In my eyes you are a vision of heavenly perfection
When you are around you bring out my inner child
I am mesmerized by your effervescent smile
Your sun-kissed body, your silky skin
Blows my mind, puts my head in a spin
When I look at you I’m at a loss of what to say
This is my reality, not fifty shades of grey
And yet your physical beauty for my eyes to behold
Cannot compare to that of your beautiful soul
All that I say is from my heart its true
I may be high in life but I’m drunk on you

So you say I love you…..
(Pause)

Yes I do.

Stop. Be quiet, you don’t know what I am capable of
But I know you too well and you are incapable of love
You may think that I have fallen for you ‘cause I am down on bended knees
But this is my praying position and I am begging the lord please, please, please
(Pause)
(Spoken) Deliver me to you

You say I love you…No I don’t

I was born in squalor, bred in pain
Taught to misunderstand the things I can’t explain
I was schooled to believe what will be, will be
To accept my lot in life for that’s my destiny

‘cause it’s just the living, it’s just how the thing set
Mi nah go scream, mi nah go bawl, mi nah go sit down and fret
Mi nah go lie, mi nah go tief, mi nah go kill for what’s mine
I will accept that ‘truth’, I will accept that line

But how do I reconcile the ‘truth’ in my head
That says go and be great, even though you’ll probably get dead
I’m so conflicted; I don’t know what to think
My heart is telling me yes but my mind says I will sink

I think I’ll hold a meds, to gain some understanding
To overcome this predicament that I find myself in
I just can’t accept that my life course is pre-ordained
For I am Yendor Sivad, the world should know my name

‘cause it’s just the living, it’s just how the thing set
Mi nah go scream, mi nah go bawl, mi nah go sit down and fret
Mi nah go lie, mi nah go tief, mi nah go kill for what’s mine
I will chart my destiny, for it is my time

I was born to be great and great I will be
My name will be carved in the annex of history
I will stand proud, as only I can
As I have the added advantage of being a black man

They tell me pride cometh before a fall
But like the Phoenix I will rise elevated and tall
Because my convictions won’t allow me to fail
So if I’m to be crucified, I will proudly wear my thorns and my nails

For it’s just the living, it’s just how the thing set
Mi nah go scream, mi nah go bawl, mi nah go sit down and fret
Mi nah go lie, mi nah go steal, mi nah tek what’s not mine
For I have the strength of my God and that makes me divine

This life’s not easy, but I’ll take it as it comes
All the challenges and trials I will overcome
And when I do, that’s when you will appreciate
The little things in life that makes this living great
Like the sun and the sea and the mountain and trees
Good friends, good food, great vibes and family
For we are Kings in our palace and we don’t even know it
So like Royalty stand tall for the world to see it

‘cause it’s just the living, it’s just how the thing set
Mi a go scream, mi a go shout , mi a go stand up and flex
Mi a go tek charge of my life ‘cause its mine
I’m going the full course, I’m taking the whole nine

It’s just the living

Love won’t always go the way we plan
But that doesn’t mean it can’t be beautiful
We have to take the bad with the good
And turn it into something wonderful

Like, a lonely tear, a heart-break
Isn’t just about the hurt and strife
It is a painful way to remind us
To breathe, we are still alive

And if by chance you got love wrong
Don’t think too much about the sorrow
Think of how the good times felt
And try again tomorrow

Don’t ever say you’re sorry
When love don’t go as plan
You tasted bliss you tasted life
That’s all you need to understand
Don’t ever say you’re sorry
If love don’t go your way
Just think about the good memories
It will help you through your day
And if by chance that’s doesn’t help
Then cry ‘til you’ve had enough
But remember it’s the person and not love that hurts
So don’t apologize for falling in love

Too often when relationships fail
We say we’ll never love again
But so often it’s the thought of love we love
And not really the person

If the same is the true of you
Don’t get too upset with yourself
‘Cause love in whatever forms it takes
Should be welcomed, if nothing else

So go and open up your heart
And let love find its way to you
And it will, if you give it half a chance
And your life will feel anew

Don’t ever say you’re sorry
When love don’t go as plan
You tasted bliss you tasted life
That’s all you need to understand
Don’t ever say you’re sorry
If love don’t go your way
Just think about the good memories
It will help you through your day
And if by chance that’s doesn’t help
Then cry ‘til you’ve had enough
But remember it’s the person and not love that hurts
So don’t apologize for falling in love

Don’t apologize (for falling in love)

It is what it is until it isn’t
I did what I did unless I didn’t
I have made it this far with little regret
I won’t be changing no rules
No worries no fret

Each time I got knocked down I bounced right back
This much I promise is true
The weight of this world won’t weigh me down
My worries in this world are too few

It’s not that I don’t have a care in this life
I just choose to let my mind be free
I stopped living the way people expect me to live
And started to live just for me

It is what it is until it isn’t
I did what I did unless I didn’t
I have made it this far with little regret
I won’t be changing no rules
No worries no fret

I dress how I dress, eat what I eat
And ignore all the bad people say
I work until five and pay all my bills
Then go sleep at the end of the day

I may drink a bit too much but not nearly enough
To get my mind all in a tizzy
I quit smoking for years, forgotten all my fears
I guess my drinking made my memory a bit frizzy

It is what it is until it isn’t
I did what I did unless I didn’t
I have made it this far with little regret
I won’t be changing no rules
No worries no fret

I am a healthy as a horse yet never exercised
They say I look young for my age
Never been married and probably never will
I’m as free as a bird, no cage

I may not know what the future holds for me
But in the end we’ll be going to the same place
So for now I am happy and choose forever to be happy
I’m living my dream so I’m not a part of the rat race

It is what it is until it isn’t
I did what I did unless I didn’t
I have made it this far with little regret
I won’t be changing no rules
No worries no fret

It is what it is, until it isn’t

Kiss me Goodbye

I sit alone in the darkness just thinking of you
Of the love that we shared it was a beautiful thing
There’s one special day that I’ll never forget
That’s the day I fell for you the day that we met

We danced in the moonlight and under the stars
And whispered sweet nothings in each other’s ears
We walked through the garden of roses so sweet
You kissed me so tender, my heart skipped a beat

This is so long it’s been heaven for me
I guess that’s the way fate meant it to be
I’ll remember you always, til the day that I die
So hug me and squeeze me and kiss me goodbye

I remember so clearly the dress that you wore
The flowers in your hair and the smile that you bore
I remember distinctly the glow in your eyes
And the feeling I felt, as if in paradise

I’ll never forget all the things we had done
The trips we had taken, the games that we won
The laughter and the joy of all the fun things we shared
The sadness and the pain of the things that we feared

This is so long it’s been heaven for me
I guess that’s the way fate meant it to be
I’ll remember you always, til the day that I die
So hug me and squeeze me and kiss me goodbye

My darling I thought our love was here to stay
I swear I never meant it to end up this way
But love can be hurtful and even unkind
We met the right place but at the wrong time

But like the saying goes all good things must end
Though secretly praying I hoped things would mend
But how do you mend a heart that’s been broken
My heart that you shattered, my love that’s impaired

This is so long it’s been heaven for me
I guess that’s the way fate meant it to be
I’ll remember you always, til the day that I die
So hug me and squeeze me and kiss me goodbye

Kiss me Goodbye

I have decided to rewrite my life
No more fairytales no pied piper’s pipe
My slates clean, it’s been brushed cleaned and wiped
I’m preparing to go earn my stripe

It’s not what I did but what I didn’t do
That has defined my why, where and my who
I lived my life trying to be like you
And now I ended up without having a clue

I shouldn’t have asked why? But why not?
So I settled with the little that I got
I didn’t see the canvas only the dot
I didn’t dream big enough so I forgot

Fool’s dream, so why not I?
Dream big enough to touch the sky
And wake myself from living this lie
I’m not living I’m just waiting to die

I have decided to rewrite my life
No more fairytales no pied piper’s pipe
My slates clean, it’s been brushed cleaned and wiped
I’m preparing to go earn my stripe

Like the brave I may fall but never yield
I don my armor with my sword and shield
That is my knowledge that I will reveal
My strength, my power, my rock, my steel

I’m breaking the chains of my mental slavery
That’s holding me back from my true destiny
Breaking the barriers setting myself free
They may have the lock but I hold the key

I have decided to rewrite my life
No more fairytales no pied piper’s pipe
My slates clean, it’s been brushed cleaned and wiped
I’m preparing to go earn my stripe

Rewriting my life
