Life

Chorus
Life is always reason for hoping
Love gives us a way of coping
life is sometimes full of doubt
Just keep breathing in and out
Life is not country, life is not place
Life is finding your peaceful space

Life is sad and life is funny
Life is never about the money
Life is family in blood and heart
Life is the journey wherever you start

Life’s in the music inside your head
When life’s tough listen instead
Life is in actions louder together
Sometimes life is the storm you weather

Life is never ever lived alone
Life is the people we have known
Life is a finite and precious gift
Love matters at end of the shift.

Lyrics Sheena Hope

LIFE

Why harden your heart, ignore memories?
Water is thick enough, so I thought
Another Christmas, you’re not part of it
What was the reason, I may have forgot?

Chorus

Each family makes memories at Christmas time
They help to sustain us many year’s down the line
Let bygones be bygones this Christmas night
Let’s join together under that light



Children love Christmas and not just the gifts
It’s family time together despite of the rifts
They’ll remember this fondly when we are long dead
The music, the laughter, what we all said.

Chorus

Santa and tinsel and mistletoe
Turkey and pudding and Ho Ho Ho
Sleigh bells and carols and all those things
But togetherness is what Christmas brings

Chorus


We all love time together with friends
Is it easier at Christmas to make amends?
Family were there right at the start
So, what better time to open your heart.


Lyrics Sheena Hope

Christmas Memories

My Christmas


CHORUS

Christmas is in families
Gathered round the tree
It’s a lovely picture, but it doesn’t fit me
Last year you set me free, so this year
I’m reclaiming Christmas for me


Christmas is in giving
Exchanging gifts on Christmas morn
My last Secret Santa was already torn(a book of porn)
I brought a bottle and stuck on a bow
And drank it with my friend under the mistletoe.


Christmas is in dinner
A festive table set for eight
But I arose full of too much hate
Last year you set me free, so
I’m reclaiming Christmas for me.


Christmas is in music
Singing Carols, old favourite songs
It’s a good time to forgive other’s wrongs
I never wanted another Christmas time
This year Christmas will be all mine.

Last Chorus

Christmas is in families
Gathered round the tree
It’s a lovely picture, maybe one day that’s for me
Last year you may have set me free, but
This Year I’m reclaiming Christmas for ME

Spirited People


Chorus

Spirit of people,
Spirit of times
Spirits that lift
Spirits that guide
Hello to the spirit inside


We are spirited people
Shaping worlds in our mind
positive or negative
it shows outside


Let’s be guided to the place
Breathe and you know the space
music, laughter, some other thing
It’s our own magic that we bring


We are spirited people
We forgot that sometime
But listen, look, feel and find
The quiet spirit of your mind.


Wolves online, hungry beasts
One especially is at the feast
Feed your soul and spirits soar but
Never forget the wolf wants more


Lyrics Sheena Hope

Spirited People

Mountain climb
Chorus
I look at my life and the decisions I have made
Regrets I take with me all the way to the grave
I know that no prayers can turn back time
Cause my heart starts each day with a mountain climb
----

I think of you always, as often as I breathe
It’s involuntary without a reprieve
The pain of our parting is still there today
And time is an enemy carrying you away

----chorus

Do you hate me I wonder or think of me still.
The years of silence haunt me and always will
Inside is a hollow that is shaped just like you
God knows this ache can still break me in two

----chorus

I hope that you’re happy and blessed with good things.
I will love you forever whatever life brings.
In my heart I rehearse conversations with you
But my mouth can’t deliver what I know to be true.
-----chorus

Still while I am breathing I hope for the best
You’re here on this planet and for that I am blessed
We don’t have any contact and that’s not ok
But you’re in my heart always and that’s where you’ll stay
-----
Last chorus
I look at my life and the decisions I have made
Regrets I take with me all the way to the grave
I know that my prayers never turned back time
But some days the mountain is easier to climb

Lyrics Sheena Hope

Notes ( I thought this could have a melancholy bare feel to start but becoming lighter and richer towards the last verse)

Mountain Climb

The Sound of our Love

Chorus
The sound of our love is pure gold
In the quiet I can see our life unfold
I never have doubts when I hear your voice
Everything else is just white noise
-------

Life is frenetic and fast and unfair.
The eye of the storm is the ground we share
Life’ s a carousel but at night we step down
In your arms I bless the peace we have found

-----------

Sometimes I just need to clear my mind
But life is so busy the time I can’t find
No matter my problems or what’s done or said
You will always be the sound in my head

-----

Who doesn’t want to live like a king
But a ransom is not what I want you to bring
Why do you stress with your drive to provide
Cause love shines like gold when we put that aside


Lyrics Sheena hope

White Noise

TIME

Chorus

Time is all relative or so I’ve heard said

And the past can be present inside of my head

Love is a timeline that can sometimes run straight

But ours is a circle that we just cannot break.

---

The past can be painful and hard to revisit

But that was back then and we just had to live it

Our love has evolved and our eyes are wide open

We know love is fragile so we just keep on hoping

---

We both played a part in our historical dramas

But anger has mellowed to feelings much calmer

Time changes minds, the hurt is diminished

We rekindled something that we could not finish

---

I’m glad we’re together, shared history binds us

The good we recall and the bad helps remind us

Our love is a circle of trust forged in time

I’m glad we’ve survived to be yours and mine

---

Notes- Thought this could be a female ballad slight country sound, quite slow tempo, with a full sound and brighter chorus.

Time

IF THE COLOUR FADES

We were together so long, it’s been an age
I should be bitter and full of rage
I loved you once, that can’t be all bad
Now that we’re over.…. It’s just Sad

Chorus

I’ll pull my respect around like a cloak
And bite back the words before they are spoke
You’re over the fence, I hope it is green
But If the colour fades, I’ll know you’ve been!!

You’ll regret us one day of that I am sure
After so long your timing was poor.
Unconditional love was my gift to you
But you enjoyed it so long you lost its value

I don’t believe we wasted our time
I touched your heart and you touched mine.
I had no say in the decision you made
But I can choose to let love fade

I’m moving on, you’re starting again
I hope she’s worth it, enjoy your love den
I'm not cold but revenge is sweet
Cause I’m happy and you, I’ll never repeat




Lyrics by Sheena Hope

A thoughtful lyric, sad but also positive.
Female ballad, slow tempo, full sound especially at Chorus.
