Chorus
I'm letting go of you in my heart,
I'm deleting you from my soul;
I'm forgetting you in my mind,
Because it's time for me to be whole...

I'm letting go of you in all ways,
I'm moving on in my life;
It might still take a while,
But I'll be awesome in time... (end chorus)

You never could be true,
You never were really you;
Young and confused,
You hurt and abused...

You never could be real,
You always wanted a deal;
You were a lost soul,
Yearning to become whole...

So...

Chorus

As much as I tried,
I couldn't fix you inside,
As much as I loved you,
You couldn't relate to truth...

I forgave you too often,
The blows I tried to soften,
I left my hurts unsaid,
And tried to help you instead...

And now...

Chorus

Yeah, I'll be awesome in time...
And find a real love that's mine...
Awesome in time...
I'll be awesome in time...

I'll be awesome in time...

In my mind's eye you're doing fine,
living your life;
I try not to regret the time I've given you, despite the hurt and the foolish feelings
I still have for you, truly...

And then I hear you got married and
you moved away to another place;
You moved on and had a family,
and I still feel like it's so strange...
Yeah...

That you're living the future that we
planned together,
(Together...)
We were meant to be forever...
(Forever...)
Oh... Oh... Oh...

Chorus
So what happens now to all those plans that we made?
And what do I do to not think of you again?
Too long you've been the cornerstone of my life,
So now I give a bow and say goodbye to that curtain...
And start anew...
Find a cornerstone that's true and certain...
(end chorus)

Thinking back on it now...
Oh, forever is a long time, and over time
people change;
All those things that happen, that cause
our lives to derail...

And, I know that we tried our best, we tried
so damn hard;
But I guess we didn't pass the test, to
survive losing a child...

Chorus

Oh... Oh... Oh... Yeah...
So what happens now to my feelings I don't want,
And will I truly say goodbye in my soul and mind and heart...
Or will I delude myself because you were my only love,
And will I ever be able to find a new cornerstone...
A cornerstone to rebuild my life...

Cornerstone of my life

You never could let go,
Could never allow yourself to fall,
Too far and in too deep,
There's so many secrets you do keep...
From me... From me...
You hide from me...
You hide from me...
From me...

Chorus
'Cos I am your darkest fear,
Afraid that I'll come near...
Near to you... Near to you...
It would prove you love me too...
That you love me too...
(end chorus)

Spoken
So what do I do to get close to you...
So what do I need to do to make you show your feelings like I do...
Is it true... That you really do...
That you do... Love me too...
You love me too...
(end spoken)

You never could let go,
Could never allow yourself to fall,
Too far and in too deep,
There's so many secrets you do keep...
From me... From me...
You hide from me...
You hide from me...
From me...

Chorus

'Cos I am your darkest fear,
Afraid that I'll come near...
Because you love me too...
You love me too...

I am your darkest fear

Verse 1
They were flamboyant and noisy,
Celebrating pride month striding,
Through crowds of delighting,
So much love, no fighting...

And the crowd was chanting...
Oh, they were proud and chanting...

Chorus
If we can stand together now,
Why can't we stand forever proud,
You may ramble on your old ways,
But we are proud and
Here we'll stay... (end chorus)

Verse 2
There's a hope in moments like these,
When we stand together for peace,
Peace and acceptance of us,
Hope in the love that is just...

And the crowd was chanting...
Oh, they were proud and chanting...

Chorus
If we can stand together now,
Why can't we stand forever proud,
You may ramble on your old ways,
But we are proud and
Here we'll stay... (end chorus)

Bridge
So you may ramble on about your old ways,
But that's just your code for bigotry
through the ages,
We're flamboyant and free now,
Why can you accept us and see it now...
Why can't you just leave us be now...(end bridge)

And the crowd was chanting...
Oh, they were proud and chanting...

Chorus
If we can stand together now,
Why can't we stand forever proud,
You may ramble on your old ways,
But we are proud and
Here we'll stay... (end chorus)

Chorus (2 voices or choir, and clapping)
If we can stand together now,
   (If we can stand together now)
Why can't we stand forever proud,
    (Why can't we stand forever proud)
You may ramble on your old ways,
    (You may ramble on your old ways)
But we are proud and
    (But we are proud and)
Here we'll stay...
    (Here we'll stay...)

We are proud and here we'll stay

Play it to the beat;
Feel the in between;
Play it to the beat;
Wanna be seen,
With my queen.

Chorus
'Cos I'm the king,
The king of the beat;
I'm the king,
King of the streets...

'Cos I'm the king,
I play it just right,
I'm the king,
King of the night. (end chorus)

Play it to the beat;
That's my world;
I play the music,
For the love of my girl;
She's my queen,
My number one,
Without her, I'd be done.

Chorus

Play it to the beat,
In the club it ignites,
Feel the heat hit the streets,
In the city it's alright...
It's a beat all night...

All night...
With my queen,
Just right... Just right...
'Cos I'm the king of the night...
I'm the king of the night...

Chorus

King of the night

I never felt like I fitted in,
The boxes of society were
Limited and grim...

I never felt like I belonged,
Family and friends didn't care
For my songs...
Then...

Chorus
You came along
And it all fit together -
The puzzle of me
Was no longer weird,
And...

You made me feel
Like I belonged...
You made me feel
Like I belonged...
(end chorus)

You held my hand,
While we walked in the park;
You gave me your coat,
When it was cold in the dark...

You loved me for me,
And it always showed;
Even without words,
I felt our hearts glowing...
Because...

Chorus

Bridge
Oh, I look at you,
And I catch my breath;
It's all so real,
Not just a test...

Oh, I look at you,
And it's all been
Worth the wait...
We belong together,
A serendipitous fate...
(end bridge)

Chorus

You made me feel
Like I belonged;
You held my hands,
And made me strong...

You made me feel
Like I belonged,
You made me feel...
You made me feel...
Like I.... Belonged...

Like I belonged

The wounds you have
That run so deep...
The taming of demons that
Won't let your soul sleep...

They can't be healed or
Tamed on their own;
They need your healing work
To release them back home...

Heaven and hell is
As you choose it,
Believe what you want
But put yourself through it...

No one else can
Save your life,
You hold the key and
You pay the price...

Unlock the gate,
Step free and clear;
No more wounds or demons
To hold you in fear...

You hold the key

Chorus
So what if you're different?
It doesn't matter if you don't fit in;
And so what if they're not understanding?
The bitter pill will keep them down...

You just keep on, keep on dreaming;
And you just keep on, keep on believing,
Believing in you;
Be different, be awesome -
Just always keep on being you!
(You just keep on being you!)
(end chorus)

Are you ready?
Ready to take a stand?
Are you ready?
Just take my hand and
Let's jump through to a new
Dimension...

A dimension where there's
Not so much attention
On what you look like,
Who you know...
The haters and fakers
Disappear in the old...

'Cos you know... Yeah, we know...
'Cos it shows... Yeah it shows...
They're the old... Old way of living...
The new one's all about believing...
Supporting one another...
We're achieving... Together...
We're in this together...

Chorus

'Cos you know... Yeah, we know...
'Cos it shows... Yeah it shows...
And we're ready,
Ready to take a stand...
And we're ready... So ready...
To jump through to a new
Dimension...

We're achieving... Together...
We're in this together...
'Cos you know... Yeah, we know...
'Cos it shows... Yeah it shows...
The haters and fakers
Disappear in the old...

Chorus

Be different, be awesome

About Me

Bio

I've been a writer and artist all my life but focused on finance and business for my career to date. However, this year I've spent time writing over 150 lyrics and poems and would love to pursue this as a career change. It is fulfilling and inspiring as I know my words help people every day.

CV/History

I've written lyrics and poems (for myself and others) my whole life and a few poems have been published.
I hope to pursue this more extensively and add to this CV section.
My Twitter profile showcases my work.
My Facebook profile is currently more related to my personal life, although I have shared my artistic endeavours with friends and family.
My LinkedIn profile is highly geared to my existing finance and business career. I will likely create specialised profiles on these sites and others.
Thank you for your interest in my work.
