Intro
There’s nothing left to prove
But keep striding forwards
Life’s been hard it’s true
But fate moves me forwards.

Verse
Darkness engulfs the night
With the rustling sound of trees
Fear’s my predicament & plight
Peril controls my beliefs.

Chorus
Heart, please don’t fail me now
Beating too quick for me
Find courage & strength some how
Till the light a head you see.

Verse
Grass cosy beneath my feet
Eyes watch the ground I tread
Pray the Holy Ghost’s with me
Loneliness is what I dread.

Chorus
Heart, please don’t fail me now
Beating too quick for me
Find courage & strength some how
Till the light a head you see.

Bridge
Just walk, walk, walk & walk
Eyes shut tight as though I’ve died
Just walk, walk, walk & walk
Eyes open wide twilight gives me life.

End/Outro
Felt alone but not anymore
Come to the end of the road
I can find my way back home
Lifes journey’s an open door.

The Journey

Another day has begun, why should I care
My minds on the run masking all my fears.
All the confusion, surrounding me day by day
Is an intrusion I know I can’t be this way.

I need a …..New start……

Chorus
I’m in distress and the darkness
Just brings me down.
No love left, I’m feeling so bereft
And my emotions confound.

Another day has begun, shed all my tears
My mind is so clear conquered all my fears.
All the confusion, surrounding me day by day
Found my solution I know all I have to say

I need a…..New start…….

Bridge
A glance at the horizon dawns a new sky
See the sun rise as I open up my eyes.
Its rays shine on me saying it’s my time
To walk in the light opportunity won’t pass me by.

Another day has begun, radiate from the east
Never thought my life would know such peace.
All the confusion that surrounded me day by day
Seems like an illusion an image of yesterday

I have a…..New start….

Chorus
I’m a success no more darkness
My life is sound
So much love left, I feel so blessed
And my emotions profound.

Another Day

It’s a Friday, clock watching til 5
See you Monday, leave the office with a smile.
It’s the best day, working week complete
Weekend started, the boost everybody needs.

Chorus
DJ playin their favourite track
That’s a fact, That’s a fact
On a natural high, with no holding back
That’s a fact, That’s a fact
DJ bangin out hits galore
That’s a fact, That’s a fact
Guaranteed to keep you on the dance floor

Hit the city, as the sun’s going down
Strictly old skool and the music playing loud
DJ rapping as clubbers busting a move
Lock & popping, head spinning to the groove.

Bridge
A natural high, no holding back
Scratching vintage vinyl of Grandmaster Flash.
Turntable beat, keep feet on the dance floor
Vibe is electric and still charging at the door.

It’s a Friday, my work here is done
Soon be Monday, still I had me some fun
Partying hard sees me at my best
Only way, to alleviate the stress

It’s A Friday

Not again, It’s just the same
Your mindless actions causing pain.
It’s just insane when I hear you say
No excuse, but I made you play away.

Chorus
Don’t blame me for your mistakes
You’ve caused my broken heart to ache.
All you’ve done is take, take, take
And faultless for the mess you create.

And when the dirty deed is done
You’ve gone out and had your fun.
Your selfishness just makes me sad
That you took for granted what we had.

Bridge
I’m not mad, even though I’m floored
The betrayal of someone I once adored.
Don’t want you around, keep bringing me down
Really thought true love I had found.

Time will tell, but I’m gonna do well
Once I free myself from this life of hell.
Feeling low and my heart is torn
But I refuse to act like a woman scorned.

Chorus
Don’t blame me for your mistakes
You’ve caused my broken heart to ache.
All you’ve done is take, take, take
And faultless for the mess you create.

It’s been a long road,
Travelling without you.
Having no one here to cling to.
It sure ain’t been that easy
With you not here beside me…….and I

Chorus
Want you to know that
I miss everything that we had.
The joy you brought when I was feeling sad
Your funny jokes & thoughts that made me laugh.
All your passion and intellect
Refusing to be treated second best
Even though they put you to the test
Still gave hundred percent and nothing less.

What to do so lonely,
Drifting on without you.
Keep asking what would you do.
It sure ain’t been that easy
With you not here for company…….and I

Chorus
Want you to know that
I miss everything that we had.
The joy you brought when I was feeling sad
Your funny jokes & thoughts that made me laugh.
All your passion and intellect
Refusing to be treated second best
Even though they put you to the test
Still gave hundred percent and nothing less.

Bridge
I guess I’m stuck, in this moment of time
Unable to break free, fearful of what I may see
When I open my eyes, that you’re not standing with me.

Feeling lost in misery,
I’m missing everything about you
And that dusty road’s been hard too.
It sure ain’t been that easy
Since you aren’t here to guide me…….and I

Chorus
Want you to know that
I miss everything that we had.
The joy you brought when I was feeling sad
Your funny jokes & thoughts that made me laugh.
All your passion and intellect
Refusing to be treated second best
Even though they put you to the test
Still gave hundred percent and nothing less.

Long Road

Verse
It matters not, who I am, what I look like in the sight of man.
I am the child of my father.
It matters not if I am large or small, Short or tall in the eyes of another
I am the child of my father.
Verse
It matters not, if the colour of my skin makes you feel superior
I am the child of my father
That your destiny is governed trying to make me feel inferior.
I am the child of my father.

Verse
It matters not, whether I am rich or if I am poor
I am the child of my father.
It matters not, If I mess up on these mighty shores
I am the child of my father.

Bridge
Child of my father
A child of my father
And there is no other
He rather I’d be, other than me.

Verse
What matters, he knows the value of my worth
He is responsible for my being on earth
Therefore, I will bend to no other.
I am his child; And he is my father.

Verse
What matters, I can trust him in the blink of an eye
I can still stand when adversity passes by
When life is rough and times get harder.
As a child I’ll turn to my father.

Verse
What matters, is that when I look back
I may be bruised but am still intact.
And if I should ever fall in troubled water.
I am guided back to the shore in the arms of my father.

It Matters Not

Sometimes I sit here all alone and I feel an overwhelming love for you.
My mind reflects on past events, how I use to be, how I am today.
If only I could find the words to express how grateful I am to you.
Just a few lines perhaps, that would show how much I care.

Chorus
And I cherish every time you enter in my thoughts.
In the way I think and in the way my mind flows.
The inspiration I get from you when my resources are low.
Enables me to take another step and choose the right way to go.


The mystery that surrounds you is such a wonderful thing.
It strengthens my inner self and causes my soul to sing.
A song that has no words to hear but the eye can surely see.
An inward glow you have given me that sets my essence free.

Bridge
Oh, it’s true true true
My pounding heart yearns for you, you, you
Oh, it’s true true true
When I express my love for you, you, you

Chorus
And I cherish every time you enter in my thoughts.
In the way I think and in the way my mind flows.
The inspiration I get from you when my resources are low.
Enables me to take another step and choose the right way to go.

Sometimes

Verse
If I could stop time
For just a few minutes
I would converse with myself
Then invite you to be part of it.

Ask you the questions
Which have haunted me
Like if I had no fear
Would fortitude be inside me.

Chorus
But time moves on at its own pace
As on second pass another takes its place.
Like count down to the end of an Olympic race
Hoping the finish line will help me face my fears.

Verse
Were we born only to die
Why does the sadness and joy
That I feel deep inside
End up making me cry.

Why love often turns to hate
And both of these emotions
Can make me enraged
And sometimes feel great.

Hook
And why the sun rises each and every day
The moon controls the ebb and flow of waves
Yet we have no say in mother nature’s affairs.
I want to know
I got to know
What would you say?

Verse
Why am I young just to grow old
Ending up just getting ignored
Self-respect totally destroyed
A life forgotten, story untold.
I got to know
Would you be more bold?

Chorus
But time moves on at its own pace
As on second pass another takes its place.
Like count down to the end of an Olympic race
Hoping the finish line will help me face my fears.
