Lyrics:

(c) 2009 SG Lewis

This is what I know, oh yeah
Said this is what I know

See, I got problems, just like you
And I hold hatred in my heart for the evil deeds men do
But I’m not gonna be free, to learn, to build, to lead
So I gotta give it up to the Most High, He set me free

He said love, and peace shall be granted to thee
And patience that passes all understanding
Oh brothers we must search for these things

What we’re fighting for
It’s harder to love but you reap what you sow
Lets put some effort forth, ‘cause hatred stifles happiness and this is what I know
What we’re fighting for
It’s harder to love but you reap what you sow
Let’s put some effort forth ‘cause hatred stifles happiness and this is what I know
Yeah this is what I know, this is what I know

I turn on the news, the darkness builds
Overcome with anger at the greed of this world, my soul feels ill
But anger won’t win this fight
Two wrongs won’t make things right
I’m gonna seek a change like a blind man prays for sight

Love, and peace shall be granted to thee
And patience that passes all understanding
Oh brothers, we must search for these things
Oh sisters, we must thirst for these things

I know, I know it’s a hard road to follow
I know it takes time to build
I know, I know sometimes it’s a hard pill to swallow
And I know it takes time to build, it takes time to build

What we’re fighting for,
It’s harder to love, but you reap what you sow
Lets put some effort forth ‘cause hatred stifles happiness and this is what I know

Said what we’re fighting for, its harder to love, harder to love
Lets put some effort forth ‘cause hatred stifles happiness and this is what I know
Said what we’re fighting for, its harder to love, harder to love
Let’s put some effort forth ‘cause hatred stifles happiness and this is what I know (repeat)

Change

Change

This one thing I know for sure, a change is gotta come, its gotta come
A change must come, got to have change, got to have change
A change must come, got to have change, got to have change

Put an end to the fuss and an end to the fight
Teach the youth to forgive, teach the youth to unite
Change our minds and our hearts make a brand new start
A change must come today

Put an end to the fuss and an end to the fight
Teach the youth to forgive, teach the youth to unite
Change our minds and our hearts make a brand new start
A change must come today

I said a change must come, I know
Got to have change, got to have change
A change must come, I know, got to have change, things can’t stay the same

Put an end to the fuss and an end to the fight
Teach the youth to forgive, teach the youth to unite
Change our minds and our hearts make a brand new start
A change must come today

Put an end to the fuss and an end to the fight
Teach the youth to forgive, teach the youth to unite
Change our minds and our hearts make a brand new start
A change must come today

Put an end to the fuss and an end to the fight
Teach the youth to forgive, teach the youth to unite
Change our minds and our hearts make a brand new start
A change must come today

Put an end to the fuss and an end to the fight
Teach the youth to forgive, teach the youth to unite
Change our minds and our hearts make a brand new start
A change must come today

Ohhh ohh,nanana, ohh na na
Childen dying needlessly, endless crimes and proverty
Take up your cross, come follow me
Help bring hatred to its knees
We’re vanquishing depravity, and if you live for live you’ll fight for peace
Wants are fine but follow needs

Step out the box fresh air you’ll breathe
A jolting wind, a peaceful breeze, soon you’ll witness both of these
From the earth under your foot, to the top of the trees
Forget about the hecklers, set your mind free,
Never seeking enemies, friends for life I pray we’ll be
Now come with me, come with me
Fight for life continually
Never seeking enemies, friends for life I pray we’ll be
Now come with me, come with me

Ohh, ohh nana nana

Dreaming

Dreaming

Dusk is falling on perfect sky
Surfers play in the ocean, a carefree couple strolls by
Oh what a view, it belongs to me and you
And forever this is how we’re gonna make it
It’s this life, this love, it’s you I’m thinking of
It’s my chance, I’m gonna take it

When I wake up from this dream, you’ll be right there
When I wake up from this dream
When I wake up from this dream, you’ll be right there
When I wake up from this dream

When you’re gone, far away from home
Makes the sunny weather feel so cold,
The beach and the trees, blue skies and green
Not the same without you next to me

When I wake up from this dream, you’ll be right there
When I wake up from this dream
When I wake up from this dream, you’ll be right there
When I wake up from this dream

Is this love? It’s you I’m thinking of
Thank God above for bringing me this love
Not alone, with you I make this home
Here with me, when I wake up, when I wake up from this dream
I wake up from this dream, Ohh oh

When I wake up from this dream, you’ll be right there
When I wake up from this dream
When I wake up from this dream, you’ll be right there
When I wake up from this dream

When I wake up from this dream, you’ll be right next to me
When I wake up from this dream

Beautiful

Beautiful

When I see you standing there
My heart skips a beat
I see you standing there
Ohh it’s a feeling I know is love
I know it’s love, I’ve felt it before

Can we share it? Can we share this here love
I see you there, right in front of me
It is the most beautiful, most beautiful site I’ve ever seen
Still to this day you’re beautiful, and no one can take that away from you
‘Cause you are beauty, the word is you
They wrote that word to understand your perfection
You’re beauty, You’re beauty

When the Party Starts

Lyrics:

Was walking down the street today
In my neighborhood
Something caught my eye
What it was, was not clear to me at first
Caught up in the corner of my mind
What it was, was disturbing as I moved a little closer
It was an old man I once knew as a child
He told me a story about a life he once lived
7..8..9..10..11..12..13.14.15. years ago
He said he partied his life away
He only had one more thing to say to me

I don’t want to be the last one left when the party starts
I don’t want to be the last one left when the party starts

So now as I think back on what he told me
I’m that age myself
What he showed me was that there’s only one life to live
You have to live it and be happy, be happy
I know there’s rules in this game, I know this game also changes
To live by the book and to make myself good and to do as I should
I know, I know there’s many things I may have done wrong
But let me sing this song as a testament

I don’t want to be the last one left when the party starts
I don’t want to be the last one left when the party starts

I don’t want to be the last one left when the party starts
I don’t want to be the last one left when the party starts

I don’t want to be the last one left
Said you come looking for me but I’m already there
No I don’t want to be the last one left
You come running for me but I’m gone, yes I’m gone
I don’t want to be the last one left
You come looking of me but I’m already there
I don’t wanna be, never gonna be the last one left, never
I’ll never be the last one left when the party starts

Wrong Thing

Wrong Thing  (S.G. Lewis © 2006)

Intro

(Chorus)

I did the wrong thing with the right girl (x2)
If you know not what I’m talking about,
One day you surely will
I did the wrong thing with the right girl

 

(v1)
Have you ever broke your women’s heart…
Ever wish you could simply start…all over again
You beg your lady for one more change
Wishin’ she could understand…the heart of a man
Now I’m not talkin’ ‘bout cheating, betraying love…
Or just plan deceiving
I put these words together for another reason,
Fellas grab your girl, ya best believe me…
Good things never seem to come easy

 

(Chorus) (w/stops)

 

(V2) (first 2 times – vocals and drums only)

 

(Bridge)

“ I did my baby wrong…Now the song I sing is a sad one”

 

(Guitar Solo)  (solo thru verse(s) and bridge)

 

(Chorus)  (1st time, steady build…2nd time with stops)
