Breathe 07:26
Verse 1 I was stuck, I was trapped in the silence Like a bird that was caged from it's purpose Had me bound and perpetually nervous Every day was a fight to the finish Pre-Chorus 1 Paper tigers, and false fires I bet you loved seeing me lost and tired Chorus No more chains holding me, I feel weightless I can fly I can float, I can coast, I am fearless, oh Take a deep breath now, let the air fill your chest now Open your mouth, let it out I can breathe, I can breathe, I feel so free, I can breathe Verse 2 Screamed myself wide awake from the nightmare Cold sweats, tear stains and the darks' stare Break of dawn, orange sun, pink skies there Air is clean, breaking free, gettin out of here Pre-Chorus 2 Paper tigers, false truths, liars I think I'll be alright, I think I'll be alright I think I'll be alright Chorus

Verse 1 Where’s that app on my phone that records ya Can’t believe I need it cuz it’s been so long Hit the button start strummin these chords Feels so good to be writin a song Gotta be honest kinda lost my way Got so hard to focus in and just create Somehow I found the strength to steady my heart Block out all my fears and say I just want this music Gotta get away and just go listen I want the rhythm and the melody Cuz that’s what makes me happy I just want this music Verse 2 I wanna hear a symphony let it surround me Fill every cell of me explode like electricity Notes crescendos virtuosity Skill sound and technicality Words phrases flow outta me Easy like when I breathe This is where I was made to be Hook Sometimes situations get the best of me I’m only human it happens naturally But it’s not worth walking away No it’s not work walkin away Hook Vamp I just want the music

Coffee 06:12
Verse 1 I'm in love, so in love I can't hide it if I tried I saw you in my dreams, and I can't believe You're in my reality Pre-Chorus You warm me up from head toe Make me feel good down to my soul You bring me joy I never known You are just the high I need Just a little bit of your caffeine You fill every part of me Chorus My coffee, my sweet tea, you're my favorite drink My coffee, my sweet tea, you're my favorite thing Love, love, love, love Verse 2 I feel so safe in your arms No matter what is goin on Can't go a single day without you You make everything feel alright Pre-Chorus Chorus I just can't get, can't get enough I'm so addicted to your love (4xs)

Verse 1 Everything that is has already been before Times will change the same situations still remain Lives and loves are lived and lost, begin and end On goes the cycle life just goes on and on, and on Chorus The thing that has been, is that which shall be That which is done is, that which shall be done There's no new thing under the sun There's no new thing under the sun Verse 2 Problems same solution, words the same meaning History seems so non-existent with it's constant repetition But You are everything, and everything is Word Nothing added nothing changed Chorus No hay nada nuevo bajo el sol No hay nada nuevo bajo el sol No hay nada nuevo bajo el sol No hay nada nuevo bajo el sol

Lovely Day 05:09
When I wake up in the morning, love And the sunlight hurts my eyes And something without warning, love Bears heavy on my mind Then I look at you And the world's alright with me Just one look at you And I know it's gonna be A lovely day It’s gonna be a lovely day It’s gonna be a lovely day It’s gonna be a lovely day When the day that lies ahead of me Seems impossible to face When someone else instead of me Always seems to know the way Oh Then I look at you And the world's alright with me Just one look at you And I know it's gonna be Chorus Lovely day, lovely day, lovely day, lovely day Lovely day, lovely day, lovely day, lovely day Every time I see your face, I remember your warm embrace Every time I see your face,I remember you’re here to stay It’s gonna be a lovely, it’s gonna be a lovely, it’s gonna be a lovely day
7.
Kindness 05:00
Verse 1 Every kind word is a ray of hope and Every smile is like the summer breeze Every hug is like the promise of th morning Reassuring there is more to the story and Every thoughtful deed is a planted seed watered by love continually It keeps my world spinning round and round It keeps your world spinning round and round It keeps our world spinning round and round Chorus Will you be my sunshine Will you be my sunshine Will you be my sunshine warming my heart Will you be my sunshine Warming my life Verse 2 Every time you reach inside yourself and Take from your own life and share with someone else Every time your thoughts and prayer reach out From just your own situation to others whom are around Every thoughtful deed is a planted seed watered by love continually We can be building bridges Hearts can be truly mended If we just had more kindness now I can be your sunshine I can be your sunshine I can be your sunshine warming your heart I can be your sunshine warming your life Vamp Be the change that you wanna see Be the change that you wanna see Be the change that you wanna see If you want the flowers you gotta plant the seed Everybody spread love, love

Rainbow 05:38
Do I go right or left Do I go east or west I wish I knew I thought by now I’d see Thought I’d know everything I’d need to know Which way to go When will I know, when will I know Chorus Oh, lalalalala… I always played it safe Did everything I could to set the stage Now what am I to do My compass broke how do I get to you I’ll travel this road where it goes Chorus And I know if I keep movin’ forward he will guide me No my heart won’t steer me wrong it knows what my eyes can’t see While my hands feel around this dark cold world there’s a hope I know That one day I’ll find exactly what I been lookin for Spoken word: Run free and far Farther than your imagination can soar Let go of the weights Hurt, pain, rejection; let the weights go And soar Don’t look back with eyes of regret Tumbling farther into the abyss of behind and not there yet and what if and I wish But run wild and free Free from expectations and go forward Move ahead Onward and upward to the winds of change and possibilities

Verse 1 Intervention Interruption Between you and me Ain’t no difference inside we’re all the same Clouded vision Cold hearts bad judgement Can’t see the forest from the trees When will we really be free Chorus Each one reach one Each one teach one Everybody come together, come together, come together change the world Verse 2 Skin deep, soul search Higher learning Enlightenment, changes mindsets and heart sets need new depths No excuses for ignorance Too much knowledge When will be learn, lets makes some progress Chorus
10.
More Love 05:18
V1 Turned on the news the other day Some things happened I’m afraid to say Can’t believe the world today How can this be land of the free home of the brave Chorus We need more love V2 It’s hard to tell what’s real from fake When folks will lie with a straight face How can we know right from the wrong way When will we finally see change Chorus Vamp Grab your neighbor by the hand Be good to you fellow man Maybe we can start again Come on and take a stand Love, love, more love
