    MY AWAKENING

                                                         
                                                            

    My Awakening V- 1 You’ve never seen me It’s not your fault Cause I never really believed in me at all Coming into my own Playing it safe for too long Even my feet can feel a change coming on chorus Looking through my own wings Fooled by transparency The beauty that’s in front of me Has been mine all this time I can fly, I can fly, I can fly It’s My awakening V- 2 I hold the brush I am the artist There’s a masterpiece of colors getting started I searched for strength Found it inside of me Now when my fear locks a door I hold the key chorus Looking through my own wings Fooled by transparency The beauty that’s in front of me Has been mine all this time I can fly, I can fly, I can fly It’s My awakening fly fly fly chorus Looking through my own wings Fooled by transparency The beauty in front of me is Mine fly fly fly It’s my awakening It's my awakening It's my awakening It's my awakening

    V1 Put a chair in the water, wet sand in my toes As I lather the sunscreen on my cheeks and my nose Leave behind all my worries, cares of the day rely on the ocean to gently wash them all away Chorus When I’m overwhelmed and life gets the best of me When I feel confused and need some clarity When I need a refuge my problems cannot reach I find a beach V2 Hear the waves as they roll in, warm sun on my face I imagine that heaven’s, a lot like this place Close my eyes and listen to the salt symphony Mother ocean provides us with the best of therapy Repeat chorus Bridge Magically My burdens disappear the moment the ocean whispers in my ear Repeat chorus twice Copyright 2022.

    I was down, so hurt, so sad You were there, you took my hand In your eyes I found strength and hope Your caring heart healed my soul You had wisdom I couldn’t know Pre: You walked with me ‘til I found my way You lifted me to a new safe place CHORUS Did you know that you were the special one Because you put me way above You showed me what love could do Your soft voice spoke the truth and I am forever better because of you You were kind with smiling eyes You cheered me on and watched me fly You stood strong to see me through Pre-Chorus Your open arms protected me You were everything a friend should be CHORUS Bridge Feel the wind Touch the sky CHORUS Ending Line: Forever better because of you

    V1 Thought I had to leave you to move on But I was dead wrong Didn’t know what I didn’t know Thought the ghosts I left behind wouldn’t haunt me But I’ve never been free Tried to face ‘em all on my own I’m done running away CH I’m coming home again I’m coming home again This dead-end won’t become my friend Cause I’m coming home again I’m coming home V2 Been holdin’ onto things holdin’ me back But you haven’t quit yet You always see the best in me I’m done running away BRIDGE And if it’s true what they say That home’s a time and not a place Then let’s go all the way back to the start

    Ascend It’s often tempting to follow the path of least resistance But the easy way isn’t always ideal The winding trail that leads steeply uphill might be better To try and find your dreams and make them real You can ascend to a new level, you can transcend the negative You can choose your views, choose how to live You can ascend, you can ascend It’s no big deal to be brave when you’re riding a wave of good luck It’s another thing, when the going gets tough You can’t be courageous unless you feel threatened and scared That’s when you’re gonna show what you’re made of You can ascend to a new level, you can transcend the negative You can choose your views, choose how to live You can ascend, you can ascend Oh yes you can, you can ascend Oh yes you can, you can ascend In these polarized times a political divide is ripping out America’s heart But the kindness that draws us together is stronger than the hatred that drives us apart We can ascend to a new level, we can transcend the negative We can choose our views, choose how to live We can ascend, we can ascend Oh yes we can, we can ascend Oh yes we can, we can ascend © 2022 Michael T.

    Never Did V1 We were high on honeymoon low on money,  Bittersweet love, that was our twenties, Old enough, but too young to commit, Thought we’d always stay together, But we never did, V2 Yeah we held each other so close, danced when it rained, Shared the tears, through our laughter and pain, Dreamed of a big house and little kids, Promised to give her the world, forever,  But I never did, Chorus Never did undo our done and gone, She learned to let go, I tried to moved on, But I still pray like hell to learn to live, With all the things we were gonna do, to the why we never did, V3 Just looking back now, on us then, Wishing we were one all over again, Can’t forgot them last words from her lips, Swore she’d stay in touch when I left, But she never did, Chorus Never did undo our done and gone, I let her go she tried to hold on, And I still pray like hell to learn to live, With all the things we were gonna do, to the why we never did, Bridge She went out into the world, Thought I lost my country girl, God brought her back in the end, Never thought she’d be back in my arms again  Chorus Cause I.. Never did undo our done and gone, I let her go, she tried to hold on And I still pray like hell to learn to live, With all the things we were gonna do, To the why we never did, Never did I pray like hell to learn to live, With all the things we were gonna do, to the why we never did, We never did, Never did....

    V1 Wake up to the calling of the city The song of the traffic from the streets. Well, the life I’ve known is a distant memory What the future holds is a mystery to me V2 The moments of happiness are fleeting. Hold on to the friends that you should meet. Through the streets I run, I’m part of the harmony Opening my arms to whatever waits for me. CH Well, the city sings me a lullaby, Talks to me and soothes me, Takes control and moves me. Dance to the rhythm of my life. Feel the music through me, Learn to love the new me. Ah, holding on as the music takes me up above, beyond All the sadness and sorrow that have weighed me down, That have weighed me down. V3 Wake up to the calling of the city The song of the traffic from the streets. Well, the life I’ve known is a distant memory What the future holds is a mystery to me.

    Call Me a Senior Citizen Words and Music ©2022 Steve Bryant (Verse) There’s not much I haven’t done, And nothing much that I can’t do. I’ll take on any challenge, And always see it through. My years have brought me wisdom, God and common sense kept me alive. There’s so much more I can do. I’ve got the time and still have the drive. (Chorus) Call me a senior citizen. I’m better than I was yesterday. I know what works and what won’t. It’s high time I had my say. Call me a senior citizen, Advertisers say I don’t exist. So many battles I have won, Almost too many to list. (Verse) I can drive an 18-wheeler, Write a song that will make you cry. I can still turn a pretty lady’s head, I don’t even have to try. I can build a bookshelf or a house, Fix almost anything that breaks, I’m not afraid to try new things, And learn from my mistakes. (Repeat Chorus) (Verse) I can cook you a gourmet meal, Tell a story where the good guys still win. Get along with you if we disagree, Walk away with a handshake and grin. I’ll lend you a helping hand, Like I did when I was young. Don’t treat me like my life is over, I’m telling you it’s just begun (Repeat Chorus)

VERSE 2: See the light at the end of the tunnel, Another mile, you’re almost home, This struggle won't keep you from winning, Don’t give up ‘til the race is run, PRECHORUS It’s what’s on the other side keeps you pushing on, It's not how you get there, or if you finish strong Knocked down and ragged, emotionally tattered, Stay proud don’t give into the pain, All is not lost, believe you still matter, You have the right to succeed, just have a little faith, Stand up and believe, PRECHORUS Each breath you take brings you closer to your dreams, Keep on moving forward, life is a precious thing, Knocked down and ragged, emotionally tattered, Stay proud don’t give into the pain, All is not lost, believe you still matter, You have the right to succeed, just have a little faith, Stand up and believe, Stand up and believe, stand up and believe

    My Old Town / Martin Dean VS1 I had to leave this tiny place and head out to the city, I had to find out what the fuss was all about. They said the men were all dressed up and the girls were pretty. There's always plenty of work and no one ever has to go without. Looking back in my rear-view mirror, that's when things started becoming clearer, that might be about the time when I started to have my doubts, REFRAIN about leaving my old town, I'm leaving my old town. VS2 It didn't take long before something began to tell me, this ain't the kinda place that I thought it was supposed to be like. People honking their horns and showing off their middle fingers, even those pretty little girls didn't know how to be polite. I met a girl who didn't do huntin' or fishin', she had a pretty face but she had me wishin' I'd never let those country girls out of my site, REFRAIN back in my old town, I'm goin' back to my old town. Instumental VS3 Mom and I went down on Sunday to the church where I first met Jesus, I listened real good and slipped a 20 into the plate, I know that Momma McCreech is gonna cry when she first sees us, Invite us over for supper 1:30 and don't be late. Then she asked me if I'm gonna be stayin' for long, she said that this town is where I really belong, And that I need to meet her cute young niece named Mary Kate. REFRAIN Back in my old town, I'm back in my old town. VS4 / BR Me and Mary Kate gotta little thing goin' on, and now we both know that it won't be long, for her and I to know this is where we both wanna' stay, REFRAIN back in my old town, back in my old town.

Dancing Zombie girl Too much Zombie wine Dancing by herself Getting her groove on and eating someone’s spline Bridge Some blue day they gonna catch me B# F# B# F# Can’t win every race that you run. Some blue day they gonna catch me Someday I’ll be the slowest one.

    Brand New Day written by: Kevin Cromwell V1 It was a brand new day, I had to get away A fresh start, a new beginning A new chance, to change everything I feel i can do anything Get up Get up, got no time for self doubt I know you know just what, i’m talking about Nothing or no one can stand in my way You will soon see how i’ve changed my game PreCh No more giving into sorrow, cause nothing going to hold me down No more worry about tomorrow, or for some rainy day To come around, cause now i understand, It will all look better when Ch When the sun comes, up again When sun comes, when the sun comes up again Up again, up again V2 It was a brand new time, in my life And you caught me, at a good time baby I’m tearing, around the curve And this, is just the tip of the iceberg Get up Get up, get on the speeding bus I’ll let you know, i’m feeling dangerous And i could be the next best thing As you will soon see how, i’ve changed my game PreCh No more giving into sorrow, cause nothing going to hold me down No more worry about tomorrow, or for some rainy day To come around, cause now i understand, It will all look better when Ch When the sun comes, up again When sun comes, when the sun comes up again Up again up again up again (guitar solo) PreCh Ch (c) 2021 Kevin Cromwell

    THINGS I KNOW

                                                         
                                                            

    THINGS I KNOW V1 Crocuses and red winged black birds Make their spring return I am alive, I have survived And come out the other side I don’t mind snow on the ground With purple flowers and bird song CHORUS These are things I know What I see from my window And feel within my soul I don’t know much But these are things I know V2 An azure sky, a cloudy day A gift either way I try to take each as it comes With hope for another one What I share is all I am Each journey has a different path CHORUS These are things I know What I see from my window And feel within my soul I don’t know much But these are things I know BRIDGE All I can do Is control how I view This day and what it can mean Until night washes over me CHORUS These are things I know What I see from my window And feel within my soul I don’t know much But these are things I know ©Ricki E.

    One Eighty I was broken’s definition Off the rails and on a mission If there was trouble I would find it My release was my affliction Always chasing my addiction Most days I just wouldn’t fight it I thought I was too far gone to get clean Jesus stepped into my world and set me free When I was nothing but a lost cause running He reached down to the bottom of the bottom And saved me He turned me one eighty Now I may not know the way back home But step by step he made a way and a promise To lead me He turned me one eighty He’s the God of saving lives I thank God he saved mine He saved mine He saved mine Now the life I broke to pieces Is in the hands of Jesus And I know he can redeem it His grace is more than able To make me whole and I am thankful That he found me there when he did I thought I was too far gone to get clean Jesus stepped into my world to set me free When I was nothing but a lost cause running He reached down to the bottom of the bottom And saved me He turned me one eighty Now I may not know the way back home But step by step he made a way and a promise To lead me He turned me one eighty He’s the God of saving lives I thank God he saved mine Now I own the road that I chose to walk But I know that I am defined by Only one thing in my history The moment that Jesus paid it all And all my sin and shame Was thrown into the sea When I was nothing but a lost cause running He reached down to the bottom of the bottom And saved me He turned me one eighty Now I may not know the way back home But step by step he made a way and a promise To lead me He turned me one eighty He’s the God of saving lives When he could have passed me by He brought my dead heart back to life I thank God he saved mine He saved mine
