Rise and Shine

History speaks for itself, with volumes of knowledge left on the shelf
How can we expect to learn and not burn, if words are spoken, not felt
Enslaved once, and colonized twice, doesn’t matter if third world is naughty or nice
It’s about materials taken by imperials while women and children die

It’s all happened before and it still goes on
Culture constructed in the fashion of Babylon,
Babel is the tower that grows taller by the hour and selfishness remains the theme song.
It’s time to give some extra thought and put your brother man first
We control our destiny and we can heal our hurt
Bring a cure for the sickness of a deeply troubled world
The hypocrite will talk but he will never back his words

Rise and Shine and live, and live
Rise and Shine and live, and live
Rise and Shine and live, and live

Who will you be when you walk out the door for work
What is your story when confronted by the world
When did you save a life or two from the grave simply because you gave
I hear talk of uniting for this cause or that
And people shouting out to give peace a chance
But the fire must be lit in the hearts of the youth
So it’s out of love that I’m challenging you to…

Rise and Shine and live, and live
Rise and Shine and live, and live
Rise and Shine and live, and live

When the Tide Comes

 

Lyrics:

When the tide comes and pulls you away
And the night comes and envelopes the day
Holding tight now, yet slipping away
From light, still slipping away

I’m trying hard to stay tuned in to what I’m doing
But even the wisest man has found ruin
Equipped with my guitar in the same room you’re in
Wanting to shed some light on where we’re moving

Just take a moment to live, and go
Good conversation you’ll find when you set sail and explore
The greatest treasures can be found in the smallest rewards
Just take a moment to live and go

Is it a case of one who knows and does nothing?
Or is it better to simply be ignorant
Hesitation, a pain he starts to front when
He can’t be real with who he’s become within

Take your punishment, take your pride
Learn from the two, toss one to the side
In a mad world, to question is to survive
Man says I know who I am, but who am I

Just take a moment to live and go
Good conversation you’ll find when you set sail and explore
The greatest treasures can be found in the smallest rewards
Just take a moment to live and go

The ocean’s just a moment’s walk
And we can sit and talk
Or run along white sandy beach,
between blue skies and green palm trees
And we can dive in, to waters crystal clear, so clear
And lay on our backs when the starry night draws near, so near
Just relax, make this time worth living for…
For yourself, for your health
Take it all in, and be yourself, patience is wealth

When the tide comes and pulls you down
Keep your head up hight and your feet on the ground
‘Cause it will hit you, pressure from all around
Sometimes you must loose yourself and truly be found

Take your punishment, take your pride
Learn from the two, toss one to the side
In a mad world, to question is to survive
Man says I know who I am, but who am I
When the tide comes

Reunion

Down by the water, I want to take you there
We’ll get lost in good memories as I run my fingers through your hair
Bet you never thought that we’d be here, in such a sub tropical place
Now we spend these moments together, I’m held captive by your beauty and grace

Oh baby please allow me, to treat you like the lady that you are
For so long you’re all that I’m sure of, day dreaming of your love from afar
And as I light the candles, baby won’t you please hold my hand
If you’re telling me your love is everlasting,
I’m telling you that I’ll be your everliving man, ohh yeah
Your everloving man

As a cool breeze blows in from the sea
And the rain takes it toll on the people below, we stroll on the beach
Now you’re on my island girl, and now you are my only girl
And if you want we can do it together, we can take on the world

Oh baby please allow me, to treat you like the lady that you are
For so long you’re all that I’m sure of, day dreaming of your love from afar
And as I light the candles, baby won’t you please hold my hand
If you telling me your love is everlasting,
I’m telling you that I’ll be your everloving man, ohh yeah
Your everloving man

Love’s your recipe and that’s my specialty
You’ve got the best of me and my heart
Now I say goodbye to all those feelings I once felt so torn apart

Baby please allow me, to treat you like the lady that you are
For so long you’re all that I’m sure of, day dreaming of your love from afar
And as I light the candles, baby won’t you please hold my hand
If you’re telling me your love is everlasting
I’m telling you that I’ll be your everloving man
Your everloving man

Out with the Old

The day that I met her, I remember it clearly
The day that I left her, I missed her dearly
But we both built those walls
Barricading each other from one another’s love
And for awhile time had left me…
Craving for more of you, aching for more of you
What were you to do?

Let me tell you if you don’t already know
Just as it can bring the pain, time also soothes the soul
Erasing, transforming, preparing, declaring a new life
A new love, a new heart, thank God above

So be careful who you give your heart to
You too may be out with the old and in with the new
So let me tell you, if you don’t already know
Just as it can bring the pain, time also soothes the soul
So be careful who you give your heart to,
You too may be out with the old and in with the new

You can hear my heart sing, praises of joy
Yeah yeah yeah

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
