GOT TO ME

 

Watching the news and all the refugees

Saw blank stares on their faces, down on their luck and on their knees in random different places.

And it got to me. Yeah, it really got to me.

 

Saw a kid on the street just living hand to mouth

Canít believe that people turn a blind eye and donít stop to help them out.

And it got to me. Yeah, it really got to me.

 

So been thinking Ďbout how I should now be grateful for my life

Got money, job and endless stuff. Iím taking life in my stride. And it got to me. Yeah, it really got to me.

 

I donít need to ask how ends can meet. Got everything I need

I know Iíve got a future and more than a chance to succeed

And it got to me. Yeah, it really got to me.

 

So Iím saying to myself , ďAm I just someone who turns away?Ē

Leaving it to someone else to fix what just wonít go away

And it got to me. Yeah, it really got to me.

 

How much do I really value life,† if my hands stay in my pockets

If I donít give a little, to change a little and get stuck right in to stop it.

And it got to me. Yeah, it really got to me.

 

Watching the news, I donít shut off, I get down off my fence

Finding ways and means to lend a hand and shake of my indifference.

Cause it got to me. Yeah, it really got to me.

 

 

TRUTH BE TOLD

 

I have a problem that makes me feel afraid.

Running so much deeper than the choices Iíve made.

Sometimes the right solution is close, so near.

Though when lifeís kept at armsí length thereís hurt and fear.

 

But itís hard to begin to try to heal,

When the hurt runs too deep, itís so very real.

Need to plant in my mind the will to succeed.

If the truth be told, I know just what I need.

 

So Iím ready to begin to resolve this now.

Keep my distance from saying I donít know how.

If my thoughts I begin to rearrange,

I could win this battle and effect the change.

 

But itís hard to begin to try to heal.

When the hurt runs too deep, itís so very real.

Need to plant in my mind the will to succeed.

If the truth be told, I know what I need.

 

Need to leave this problem and do whatís right.

Raise it onto a high shelf way out of my sight.

Now increase the distance between me and whatís wrong.

So, I start to believe I belong and Iím strong.

 

But itís hard to begin to try to heal.

When the hurt runs too deep, itís so very real.

Need to plant in my mind the will to succeed.

If the truth be told, I know what I need.

 

So, Iíll forgive the world, including myself,

For not fixing the hurt that so long Iíve felt.

I will value being different and take my stand

Knowing itís OK to be who I am.

 

I have a problem that makes me feel afraid.

Running so much deeper than the choices Iíve made.

Found the solution it was close, so near.

Time to play my part and live life without fear.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

INTEGRITY

 

Iíll keep loose, keep steady

Stay on the right side of life.

Be strong be ready

To defend myself and say why.

When it matters, Iíll keep it simple.

I wonít complicate what I know.

Iíll be myself not a pretender

Then I wonít have to put on a show.

 

My lifeís just starting out.

Iíll leave out the fear and doubt.

Follow the future I dare to see.

Iíll aim for the brightest star.

Wait for my dreams to go far.

Hold fast to my integrity.

 

Iíll take my time, when I have a plan.

Accept all the help I can get.

When success comes Iíll be ready.

Enjoy my time no regrets.

Iíll ask advice from the people

Who donít always say what I want to hear.

Theyíll be truthful. Theyíll be honest.

So, Iíll listen to them without fear.

 

My lifeís just starting out.

Iíll leave out the fear and doubt.

Follow the future I dare to see.

Iíll aim for the brightest star.

Wait for my dreams to go far.

Hold fast to my integrity.

 

Iíve a right to stay happy.

Focus on the strength thatís inside.

So Iíll smile, whenever Iím alone.

Wear sense of purpose with pride.

I wonít shut out the world outside.

So life wonít always be about me.

Iíll be prepared for the give and take.

To aim for the future I see.

 

My lifeís just starting out.

Iíll leave out the fear and doubt.

Follow the future I dare to see.

Iíll aim for the brightest star.

Wait for my dreams to go far.

Hold fast to my integrity.

 

 

ANOTHER DAY IS OVER†

 

Another day is over

The writingís on the wall

Itís time to stop reflecting on

The dreams that made me stand so tall

Now Iím fully awake

And Iím standing on my feet

From now until tomorrow

The sun will be much colder

Than the one within my dreams.

 

I love you so much that it hurts

I feel pain in my heart

I never knew that love would leave me

Standing alone in the dark

Now Iím feeling so empty

And thereís nothing left to say

So as you leave Iíll smile and wave

Then turn so you donít see

My tear stained face

 

See our picture with me

Hold it in your head

And when the new day starts to dawn

On the painful tears that weíve both shed

And Iíll begin all over

I will start to live again

Pretend a new beginningís here

And dream a dream for which

Thereíll be no end

 

I love you so much that it hurts

I feel pain in my heart

I never knew that love would leave me

Standing alone in the dark

Now Iím feeling so empty

And thereís nothing left to say

So as you leave Iíll smile and wave

Then turn so you donít see

My tear stained face

 

So come a little closer

Please hold my hand once more

Iím scared to branch out on my own

It hurts to know youíve closed the door

And Iíll take it upon myself

To recall what we once had

But when I look and youíre not there

Iíll hold my breath, fight back the tears

And try not to be sad
