Me

You think you know me
Moulding my life
Pretend you listen
Show a smile

Buried in guidance
You seem to know it all
Why do you change me?
Did I come this far
To be who you are?

Chorus:
I don’t walk like you!
See who I am! I don’t talk like you !
See who I am! I’m somebody else
Maybe that’s why you can’t see
That I’m me, that I’m me!

I keep on defending
The choices that I make
Force feed your vision
You cross the line
Take away what’s mine

Repeat chorus
Intermezzo

End chorus:
I don’t walk like you!
See who I am! I don’t talk like you!
I don’t walk like you! See who I am!
I don’t talk like you! See who I am!
Yeah, I’m somebody else
It is meant to be that I’m just like me
You’re supposed to see nobody else
Mmm, that’s why I’m me! That’s why I’m me!

All of my life

Who can tell me what’s wrong and what’s right?
I’m surrounded by the puzzle, this life
No, my path is never straight
And there’s always something waiting

Walk in circles all through the night
Look for answers that I’ll never find
How am I supposed to rest
If i hunt for the solution?

Want to find a way to surrender and to overcome

All of my life I figure out and wonder why
I wonder why
All of my life these things remain,
Questions unexplained
Tied in a thousand knots
They’re waiting to be unraveled
In the life that I travel
All of my life

In my past I was afraid of my mom
Careful, everything I did was wrong
And although time has grown
Still I’m living my illusion

Trying to find a way to surrender and to overcome

All of my life I figure out and wonder why
I wonder why
All of my life these things remain,
Questions unexplained
Tied in a thousand knots
They’re waiting to be unraveled
In the life that I travel

You just go with the flow,cause that’s where you’ll find
your luck
Don’t prepare yourself, cause you don’t know what your get
Or how you get it
Now pick up your shining armour and don’t be sad, cause
it’s not so bad
No, life’s so wonderful…

All of my life I figure out and wonder why
I wonder why
All of my life these things remain,
Questions unexplained
Tied in a thousand knots
They’re waiting to be unraveled
In the life that I travel

Yeah
All of my life
I wonder why
Who these things remain
That are questions on unexplained
She a tied in a thousand knots
And they’re waiting to be unraveled
In the life that I travel
All of my life

Lucky day

Got a painting in your hand, found a spot on the wall
You pull yourself together to be a man once and for all
So you get your brand new toolbox from the garage
You pull out the hammer and you start to pound
You don’t really hit the nail, you hit an awful sound
That lets you know you got a new five foot hole in the wall

People say that I can do nothing right
When I don’t look on the bright side
I’m in trouble even on my lucky day

It’s your holiday, another day at the beach
Your phone is far away and your work’s finally out of reach
The only thing scheduled is your appointment with the sun
So you’re just about ready putting’ all of your sun block on
Then this kid and a truckload of sand run along
Now you just have to start all over again

People say that I can do nothing right
When I don’t look on the bright side
I’m in trouble even on my lucky day

Well you might believe I’m not the only one
I don’t believe you’re right
Cause I’m in trouble.. even on my lucky day

It’s the middle of the night and your really have to go
But you want to be quiet, so you don’t switch on the light,
Thinking I should find my way in the dark by now…
So you climb out of bed and you reach for the door.
But your forgot all about the box you put there the night before,
Now you’re all awake staring at the pack of ice on your foot.

People say that I can do nothing right
When I don’t look on the bright side
I’m in trouble even on my lucky, even on my lucky
I said even on my lucky day

Stuck with you

Everything is easy
If I can just be with you
You’re sweet as honey
And you’re dependable too
It’s true what they say:
All you need is love every step of the way

Yeah, sometimes she’s an angel
But she can be trouble too
Then I really hate her
For what she puts me through
It’s true what they say:
Love in fact cuts both ways
Mmm, you’re just too sweet

Chorus:
There’s no way I can get out
I’m so much in love with you
I don’t think I would if I could, though
You are the love of my life
I won’t be able to leave you
I know I’m stuck with you
I’m livin’ a contradiction
I gotta give in to this friction
Love and hate, it’s true,
I’m stuck with you, stuck with you

Everything’s so easy
If I would just play this game
No one ever told me
There’d be a high price to pay
The ways of a woman
It’ll take the rest of your life tryin’ to figure them out
Hey, you’re just too sweet

Repeat chorus

Just when I begin to think that you’re not right for me
You do something that can bring back every smile in me
I realize the fate about this love and hate
Now nothing I can do, I’m stuck with you

Repeat chorus

Live

Stop searching, look around, a lesson to be learned
The truth found has reached the point of no return
Foundation is falling
As the dust lays down, destination is clear
It is screaming louder: learn how to fight!

I’ve come to realize I never stand up for myself
I draw a line that can be changed by someone else
While I’m waiting Until I find the strength to get up again

It is screaming louder: learn how to fight!

Chorus:
Live, live your own life
Someone else might make the choice for you
Live, live your own life Learn how to fight or they’ll walk all over you

Stand up! find out, they’re offended by you
If you don’t, you’ll see, they’ll keep on teasing you
One way or another These options never leave you satisfied

It is screaming louder: learn how to fight!

Repeat chorus

They control you only because you don’t!
Stand up for yourself!
They only try to control you

Repeat chorus

Never let her slip away

I talked to my baby on the telephone long distance
I never could’ve guessed I could miss someone so bad
I really only met her ‘bout a week ago
But it doesn’t seem to matter to my heart I know
That I love her I’m hoping that I’ll never recover
‘Cause she’s good for me
I know it’s gonna make me happy
To never let her slip away

I feel like a kid with a teenage crush on a school day
I feel like the lead in Romeo and Juliet,
oh I’m a little bit dizzy, I’m a little bit scared
I guess I never felt this much aware
That I love her I’m thinking that I’ll never recover
Alright, she’s good for me
I know it’s gonna make me happy
To never let her slip away

Oh, I really only met her ‘bout a week ago
But it doesn’t seem to matter to my heart I know
That I love her I’m thinking that I’ll never recover
She’s good for me I know it’s gonna make me happy
Never ever slip away

Mmm, I love her I’m thinking that I’ll never recover
Yeah, she’s good for me
And it would really make me happy
Says I’ll never ever slip away, alright
To never let her slip away

Little outta line

It’s early in the morning, I open my eyes
I look around and there’s you
I think about everything we’ve been through
A little later you wake up too “Good morning!”
I kiss your cheek You look at me with ‘that’ smile
Suddenly a feeling gets hold of me
These words roll out of my mouth:

Chorus:

I get a little outta line when I’m by your side
‘Cause you’re the love of my life, yeah yes
I feel so funny inside, I’m out of my mind
For you I’d run a million miles
A little outta line when I’m by your side
‘Cause you’re the girl of my dreams, yeah yes
I feel so funny inside, I’m out of my mind
For you I go down on my knees… “Will you marry me?”

She said: “You’re so sweet, my baby come here.”
“Now whatcha (what have you) been dreaming about?”
“Look at your finger and me what do you see?”
Than she starts to laugh out loud “I don’t know what got into me.”
“I’m amazed you walked into my life”
“Now whenever I think about you and I,
I’m so happy I could marry you twice!”

Repeat chorus

You make me forget who I am
I’m losing control I’m too much in love
And my heart isn’t big enough for you

Repeat chorus

Have some faith

I remember the day we started out in a way that I’ll never forget, o yes.
The first side of you came right into my heart.
There was more as I recall, relationships I had before.
I was afraid I’d lose myself in you.

Refrein:
Have some faith in me, I can be good to you.
Have some faith in me, we’ll work it out.
Have some faith in me, I know it’s not easy.
But give me time and I’ll show you that my love for you is real.

I remember the days changed in every step that we both made.
And you, devoted your time, your life to me.
But the more you try to embrace our love, the more it slipt away from me.
And you couldn’t reach me anymore.

And you said:

Refrein:
Have some faith in me, I can be good to you.
Have some faith in me, we’ll work it out.
Have some faith in me, I know I’m not easy.
But you’re the only one I ever really cared about.

So why do we need pain to know what love is?
Tell me why can it only be right?
Tell me why.

Refrein:
Have some faith in me, I can be good to you.
Have some faith in me, we’ll work it out.
Have some faith in me, I know I’m not easy.
But you’re the only one in my life.
But you’re the only one…for sure
I remember the day we started out in a way that I’ll never forget, o yes.
The first side of you came right into my heart.
There was more as I recall, relationships I had before.
I was afraid I’d lose myself in you.

Refrein:
Have some faith in me, I can be good to you.
Have some faith in me, we’ll work it out.
Have some faith in me, I know it’s not easy.

So why do we need pain to know what love is?
Tell me why can it only be right?
Tell me why.

Refrein:
Have some faith in me, I can be good to you.
Have some faith in me, we’ll work it out.
Have some faith in me, I know I’m not easy.
But you’re the only one in my life.
But you’re the only one…for sure

Mr. Sowbug

I’m driving in a straight line and all the road signs
Make way for me
I’m free the day is all mine and the sunshine
Brings out the best in me
Right now I’m heading home Cruisin’ down the road
Yeah, I’m almost there
A perfect day coming true If it wasn’t for you

Chorus:

Mr. Sowbug, why did you not walk slow, bug,
No bug, I couldn’t go, bug, around you and save your soul
Oh no, I couldn’t save your soul.

I’m crawling in a straight line, no clue to the time
To meet my destiny
Not aware of the danger, of an ignorant stranger
Who’s just about to see the end of me
I was looking for food In the neighborhood
Yeah, I was almost there
A perfect day coming true If it wasn’t for you, alright

Repeat chorus

Soul, I couldn’t save your Soul
You would have made it, if you had waited a while, yeah!

Solo Repeat chorus

Oh, it could’ve been so beautiful
Should’ve gone left, right, right, left At the traffic light straight ahead, oh! Oeh, life ends with a pop, ‘cause he couldn’t stop, no no
Just a perfect day coming true, if it wasn’t for you

Poetry

Have you ever had a moment
You couldn’t tell the girl you love
What she means to you
You got a lot of feelings
That don’t mention any word
Because no word will do
You can’t think of anything new

[refrein]
Like the candle and the flame
Like the picture and the frame
Like the sun and like the moon
We stick together
Like the flower and the bee
Like the leave and like the tree
Like the echo and the voice
A match forever

I really wanna show you
What in the history of love
Is all been said and done
I wanna be original
But so far it’s impossible
Cuz I believe all the words are wrong
Just got this silly song

[refrein]

From the moment that I wake up
‘till I go back to bed
I look for words to say
If only I let it go
And just use whatever I know
Say something anyway
Anything, anyway

[refrein]

Like the candle and the flame
Like the sun and like the moon
Like the flower and the bee
Like the echo and the voice
A match forever

Floating

I compare the ocean with a day of my life
Peaceful at the surface, a mystery inside
I was left alone and no one cared

The truth I keep hiding form the outside
I wanna find my home, somewhere out there
I float around the world
I pretend that it doesn’t really matter
I am afraid someone might see me
A little boy crying, ‘cause mommy didn’t care
A little boy hiding and daddy wasn’t there

Livin’ with a secret, I don’t feel safe
It’s like waiting on a small boat for the tidal wave
I was left alone, and no one cared
I float around the world
I pretend that it doesn’t really matter
I am afraid someone might see me

A little boy crying, ‘cause mommy didn’t care
A little boy hiding and daddy wasn’t there

I am scared, I am scared
I am calling out, here’s my S.O.S.
Well who’s gonna save me?

A little boy crying, ‘cause mommy didn’t care
A little boy hiding and daddy wasn’t there
A little boy crying with a mommy didn’t care
A little boy hiding when daddy wasn’t there
Somewhere out there

Seize the day

He had a chocolate flavored vision
Saw the rainbow every day
I wanna figure out his happiness
I see craziness when I look around

He didn’t take his life for granted
Every breath and every beat of his heart
Another day, a possibility
An opportunity in his eyes, he told me

Seize the day
Never let it fade away
Keep on running from the truth
The miracle is just to much for you
Seize the day
You need to find a way
Look around and you’ll see through
The beauty of life, the way I do

What about the past or the future
They’re just pictures, frozen in your mind
The more you think, the less you’re living
With the time you’re given, you’d better smile!

Seize the day
Never let it fade away
Keep on running from the truth
The miracle is just to much for you
Seize the day
You need to find a way
Look around and you’ll see through
The beauty of life, the way I do

How don’t believe this world will wait for you one minute
You can be sure about one thing, time goes on
It doesn’t matter whether you’re happy or down and out
Time goes on, time goes on

Seize the day Never let it fade away
Keep on running from the truth
The miracle is just to much for you
Seize the day
You need to find a way
Look around and you’ll see through
The beauty of life, the way I do

Seize the day
Never let it fade away
Keep on running from the truth
The miracle is just to much for you
Seize the day
You need to find a way
Look around and you’ll see through
The beauty of life, the way I do

Walking in Memphis

Put on my blue suede shoes
And I boarded the plane
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
In the middle of the pouring rain
W. C. Handy — won’t you look down over me
Yeah I got a first class ticket
But I’m as blue as a boy can be

Then I’m walking in Memphis
Walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale
Walking in Memphis
Do I really feel the way I feel

Saw the ghost of Elvis
On Union Avenue
Followed up to the gates of Graceland
Then I watched him walk right through
Now security they did not see him
They just hovered ‘round his tomb
But there’s a pretty little thing
Waiting for the King
Down in the Jungle Room

Then I’m walking in Memphis
Walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale
Walking in Memphis
Do I really feel the way I feel

They’ve got catfish on the table
They’ve got gospel in the air
And Reverend Green be glad to see you
When you haven’t got a prayer
But boy you’ve got a prayer in Memphis

Now Muriel plays piano
Every Friday at the Hollywood
And they brought me down to see her
And they asked me if I would —
Do a little number
And I sang with all my might
And she said —
“Are you a Christian child?”
And I said “Ma’am I am tonight”

2x
Then I’m walking in Memphis
Walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale
Walking in Memphis
Do I really feel the way I feel

My friend

As I sit here behind my piano
Thinking about my worries
Yesterday, today and tomorrow
I want to throw them all away

But when I’m down he helps me out
to beat the misery
Never leaves me alone and together we fight
Until I believe, Yes

He’s telling me to hold on
Don’t let nobody hold you down
So get up and carry on
Don’t let nobody turn you around, just believe

There are people around me who tell me
How I should live my life
I get lost and afraid and when I’m alone
It makes me wanna cry out

So when I’m down he helps me out
to beat the misery
Never leaves me alone and together we fight
Until I believe, yes

He’s telling me to hold on
Don’t let nobody hold you down
So get up and carry on
Don’t let nobody turn you around, just believe

So follow cause I am leading, let them all say it can’t be done
Jealous words won’t touch your feelings, so be patient and hold on
And when you feel just a little bit lonely, I wont let you down

He is a guiding light, a voice in every sound
Like a thin line of faith
Never leaves me alone he is a part of my life
That just going on

He is telling me to hold on
Don’t let nobody take you down
So get up and carry on
Don’t let nobody turn you around
Just believe and hold on
Don’t let nobody take you down
don’t you ever let nobody take you done
Let nobody turn you around, yeah
Get up and carry on, yeah
Don’t you ever let nobody take you down
Let nobody turn you around, yeah
So get up and carry on
He is telling me to hold on
