WHATEVER IT TAKES

VERSE

WE'RE RAISED TO SHOW RESPECT
FOR OUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS
WE MUST USE OUR INTELLECT
TO COMMUNICATE WITH THEM

WHEN LIFE THROWS A CURVE BALL
TOWARDS YOUR UNHARMED SOUL
THERE'S SOMEONE YOU CAN CALL
TO DRAG YOU FROM THIS HOLE

CHORUS

WHATEVER IT TAKES I'M HERE
I'M ALWAYS BY YOUR SIDE
WHATEVER IT TAKES I'M NEAR
WHENEVER YOU WANT TO HIDE
WHATEVER IT TAKES I'M HERE
AS AN EAR FOR YOU TO CONFIDE

VERSE

EVERYDAY SEEMS LIKE A DRAG
WHEN THAT BLACK DOG STRIKES
ENOUGH TO MAKE YOU BARKING MAD
LIKE A ZEBRA WITHOUT STRIPES

TAKE SOME TIME OUT FROM LIFE
INHALE THE DEEPEST BREATH
THE DRUGS MAKE YOU SKY HIGH
YOU'RE ON THE BRINK OF DEATH

CHORUS

WHATEVER IT TAKES I'M HERE
I'M ALWAYS BY YOUR SIDE
WHATEVER IT TAKES I'M NEAR
WHENEVER YOU WANT TO HIDE
WHATEVER IT TAKES I'M HERE
AS AN EAR FOR YOU TO CONFIDE

VERSE

THIS CRAZY WORLD CAN REALLY HURT
THE ONES WE DEEPLY CARE ABOUT
MENTAL ILLNESS IS LIKE A DIRT
THAT NEEDS TO BE IRONED OUT

DON'T BE ASHAMED TO TELL SOMEONE
ABOUT THE POISON IN YOUR VEINS
FIRST WE'LL WALK THEN WE'LL RUN
IT'S YOUR TURN TO TAKE THE REINS

CHORUS

WHATEVER IT TAKES I'M HERE
I'M ALWAYS BY YOUR SIDE
WHATEVER IT TAKES I'M NEAR
WHENEVER YOU WANT TO HIDE
WHATEVER IT TAKES I'M HERE
AS AN EAR FOR YOU TO CONFIDE

BRIDGE

I'M HERE TO COMFORT YOU
I'M HERE TO TALK WITH YOU
I'M HERE TO WALK WITH YOU
I'M ALWAYS HERE FOR YOU.

CHORUS

WHATEVER IT TAKES I'M HERE
I'M ALWAYS BY YOUR SIDE
WHATEVER IT TAKES I'M NEAR
WHENEVER YOU WANT TO HIDE
WHATEVER IT TAKES I'M HERE
AS AN EAR FOR YOU TO CONFIDE.

Whatever It Takes

WHAT GOES AROUND

VERSE

YOU PULL ALL MY STRINGS
LIKE A PUPPET ON FIRE
YOU GIVE UP THE THINGS
FOR YOUR PERSONAL DESIRE

YOU TRY TO BE COOL
BUT YOU'VE ALREADY LOST
COS YOU THINK I'M A FOOL
NOW PREPARE FOR THE COST

CHORUS

WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND
DON'T SAY I DIDN'T WARN YOU
WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND
TO THOSE WHO IGNORE TRUTH
WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND

VERSE

STOP SPREADING RUMOURS
YOU KNOW ARE UNTRUE
YOU'VE NO SENSE OF HUMOUR
BUT THAT'S WHAT YOU DO

NOBODY BELIEVES YOU
COS YOU'RE SO FULL OF IT
THESE LIES I CAN SEE THROUGH
I WONT STAND FOR THAT SHIT

CHORUS

WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND

SHOOT ME DOWN QUICK
YOU'LL BE COUNTING THE COST
YOU'RE MAKING ME SICK
BUT I HAVEN'T LOST

SHADOWS

VERSE

AS I LIE AWAKE IN MY BED
GOOSEBUMP TINGLED SKIN
COLD SHIVERS LIKE A RIVER
WHILE THE LIGHTS GO DIM

IT WONT BE LONG NOW
UNTIL IT COMES TO SHARE
ALL IT'S HORRENDOUS GLORY
IT JUST SEEMS SO UNFAIR

CHORUS

LIKE A SHADOW ON THE WALL
YOU HAUNT AND YOU CALL
LIKE A SHADOW ON THE WALL
I DREAM AND I FALL
LIKE A SHADOW ON THE WALL
THE WORST NIGHTMARE OF ALL

VERSE

I'LL FIGHT THESE EVIL LORDS
IF IT MEANS OWNING FREEDOM
TO BE WHO I REALLY AM
I'M TRYING NOT TO FEED THEM

THIS EVIL SPIRIT HAS A GRIP
ENTWINED AROUND MY BODY
LIKE WAVES CRASHING RELENTLESSLY
AGAINST THE ROCKS OF FOLLY

CHORUS

LIKE A SHADOW ON THE WALL
YOU HAUNT AND YOU CALL
LIKE A SHADOW ON THE WALL
I DREAM AND I FALL
LIKE A SHADOW ON THE WALL
THE WORST NIGHTMARE OF ALL

VERSE

IT SHAKES MY SOUL VIOLENTLY
I CAN'T WAKE UP TO ESCAPE
PLEASE DON'T FOLLOW ME
COS IT MAYBE ALL TOO LATE

I'LL SURRENDER IF YOU DO
BUT THAT AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN
COS I KNOW DEEP IN MY BRAIN
I'VE BEEN CAUGHT OUT NAPPIN

CHORUS

LIKE A SHADOW ON THE WALL
YOU HAUNT AND YOU CALL
LIKE A SHADOW ON THE WALL
I DREAM AND I FALL
LIKE A SHADOW ON THE WALL
THE WORST NIGHTMARE OF ALL

BRIDGE

THESE SHADOWS RUN DEEP
DESTROYING OUR SLEEP
THESE SHADOWS SHALL REAP
OUR DREAMS OF DECEIT

CHORUS

LIKE A SHADOW ON THE WALL
YOU HAUNT AND YOU CALL
LIKE A SHADOW ON THE WALL
I DREAM AND I FALL
LIKE A SHADOW ON THE WALL
THE WORST NIGHTMARE OF ALL.

About Me

Bio

I'm a 44 year old Lyricist/Songwriter who writes Lyrics only for musical setting.I began writing in late 1999 and have a vast array of quality Lyrics.In 2000 i submitted my very first Lyric Titled "Diamond Eyes" for musical setting with Empire Music Company in Newburgh-New York.I received an Honourable Mention Certificate for my song!Enter 2001 and i found an online 'Work For Hire' Music composer called Eastcraft in North Carolina-USA.The gentlemens name was Dave Scarboro,He was so impressed with our musical collaboration that he went on to record over 20 great demo songs for me.I also had 6 songs Published by his joint Eastnash Publishing.My songs were held over for further review in 2001 but unfortunately i didn't get signed.He no longer shops my songs so i have 100% copyright and ownership of all my demo songs.I was also contracted to Noma Music-California for 3 months to try and get my songs into movies and film.My main contact there was Mike Wyner.
