You've stayed beside me when I'm strong
But will you still be there when I can't hold on
Will you push me over the ledge
Or tightly grab my hand instead

Like a tree I do stand tall
But there will be times when I fall
The winds will be too strong to withstand
So will you be there when I land

Oooh oooh i want to be with you
I really really need you
but if you're going to forsake me
I'll do what I have to
Fool me once shame on you
Fool me twice shame on me
So tell me right now boy, what's your answer gonna be
Yeah, tell me right now boy what's your answer gonna be

On the days that I am weak
For your comfort I will seek
Will you be there to help me through
Or will I find that you have moved

Oooh oooh I want to be with you I really really need you
But if you're going to forsake me I'll do what I have to
Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me
So tell me right now boy what's your answer gonna be
Yeah tell me right now boy what's your answer gonna be

Before I place my trust in you
Your loyalty must be proved
Can I give my heart away
Or in it's safe place should it stay

Oooh oooh I want to be with you, I really really need you
But if your going to forsake me, I'll do what I have to
Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me
So tell me right now boy what's your answer gonna be
Yeah, tell me right now boy what's your answer gonna be

Oooh tell me what is your answer going to be

Yea tell me right now boy what's your answer gonna be

What's your answer

So down, been so down
Can't seem to pick myself up off the ground
These past year's been so long
Please tell me where did I go wrong

Will it ever be my turn
Will it ever be my turn

So hard, I work so hard
Am I even playing the right card
I don't feel like I'm strong
I don't know how much longer I can hold on

I feel like I'm sliding
But I must keep climbing

Push through, just push through
The waters may be rough, but I must continue
Low tides will arrive
Soon I will make it to the other side

I feel like I'm sinking
But I must keep swimming

Break free, just break free
From all the fear that's chained inside of me
One step at a time
My path toward my destiny I will find

My fear is fading
Through the water I'm wading

It will be alright
I keep my head held high, and look for the light
New times will begin
Before I know it, I can breathe again

My Turn

Sing me your song pretty red bird
bring some peace into my heart
Sing me your song pretty red bird
remind me the world's not falling apart

Sing your beautiful melodies
Bring the joyness back to me
Spread open your wings
Show the world your beauty

Sing me your song pretty red bird
Your chirps sound so bitter sweet
Sing me your song pretty red bird
Through you I don't feel the defeat

Sing your beautiful melodies
Bring the joyness back to me
Spread open your wings
and show the world your beauty

Sing me your song pretty red bird
Let the world hear your voice
Sing me your song pretty red bird
A reminder that we should rejoice

Sing your beautiful melodies
Bring the joyness back to me
Spread open your wings
Show the world your beauty

Sing me your song pretty red bird
your song is needed in this world

Verse 1:

I'm hiding from myself

Hiding from everyone else

Hiding from all these eyes

That watch my every move

Hiding from all of the lies

But I don't want to hear the truth

Chorus x1:

Can you find me

Can you hear me calling

I can't find me

I fear I am falling

Verse 2:

I'm hiding from myself

Hiding from everyone else

Hiding from all the debates

But they won't go away

Hiding from the tears running down my face

I think they are here to stay

Chorus x1

Can you find me

Can you hear me calling

I can't find me

I fear I am falling

Verse 3:

I'm hiding from this cold place

That is now empty in my heart

Hiding from this pain that surrounds me

While I'm hiding away in the dark

Chorus x1

Can you find me

Can you hear me calling

I can't find me

I fear I am falling

 

Can you find me?

Dance to the beat of your own drum.
You have your own music and your own rhythm.
Don't let no one tell you that you cannot move.
Because to them you have nothing to prove.

They'll try to make you and break you and mold you and shape you.
More like them from you they will contour.
They'll bend you and twist you until you don't know who.
Because like them you will be transformed.

So, dance to the beat of your own drum.
You have your own music and your own rhythm.
Don't let no one tell you that you cannot move.
Because to them you have nothing to prove.

You're amazing the way you are, you're your own shining star.
But the world tells you differently because to them you are different.
But don't give a damn what they say, only you can know your heart.
Don't let their words put you down, know that your Magnificent.

Dance to the beat of your own drum.
You have your own music and your own rhythm.
Don't let no one tell you that you cannot move.
Because to them you have nothing to prove.
Dance to the beat of your own drum.

Dance to the Beat of your own drum

The sunsets red
And shining through
The only thing
Is it's missing you
I wanted you here
You said no
Because you feared
Your loves before

So it's me and the blues
With the beautiful skys
Yea oh so red
They won't say goodbye
With the words you said
So it's just me and the blues

I truly thought
We were forever
And I would have fought
For us to be together
But your plans were different
You had a reprint
And that's ok
I'll be ok

It's just me and the blues
With the beautiful skys
Yea their oh so red
They won't say goodbye
With the words you said
So it's just me and the blues

It's just me and you blues
I wish I never read
what you said
So it's just me and the blues

Me and the Blues

Add your memories, find your journey, on the road

Be like many, of the others, who've made their travels, long before

When you feel lost, or in a rut

Lay your foot on the pedal, you'll soon be unstuck

Take your time
Enjoy the ride
Because as all good things do
The road will end soon

The road
Will lead you home

May the oath be, dirt or gravel, choose the ones that's made for you

May your worries, start to unravel, when the horizon shows a different view

The road may get a little bumpy or change directions

But with a strong grip, and dedication

Slow your roll
Control your turns
Escape the fears of your youth
And your path will start to smooth

The road
Will lead you home

Don't be afraid of what lies ahead
This path was chose for you
Lift your head and be strong
And you'll find where you belong

The road
Will lead you home

The Road
