Reach Out

Song for the beating hearts…

Title: Reach Out

I like to take you on a journey to a similar place in time
Where hearts are sometimes broken and the reasons are hard to find
Have you ever lost a loved one well before their healthy prime
Oh I wonder why we suffer, feeling worse then any crime

But I sing these words tonight for the ones who are alone
For they can’t admit their problems, only God really knows
They suffer in their silence and the pain surely grows
So lets give them a song and offer them this hope

Reach out and tell somebody you could use a little help
Simply say a little something and your agony might melt
Just speak up and share them secrets of your authentic self
Oh reach out and trust that people really care when you tell

Nothings worse then holding on to a thought that truly hurts
Nothings worse then living with shame oh we know that never works
Understanding were not alone on this journey we call life
Understand that love will enter when we share what’s on our mind

So reach out and tell somebody you could use a little help
Simply say a little something and your agony might melt
Just speak up and share them secrets of your authentic self
Oh reach out and trust that people really care when you tell

Now I know what it means to try to make it all alone
I used to think that sorrow was the only true way to our soul
But with time and a little faith, in yes the human race
I realized that I am fine despite my yesterdays

So reach out and tell somebody you could use a little help
Simply say a little something and your agony might melt
Just speak up and share them secrets of your authentic self
Oh reach out and trust that people really care when you tell

Now is the Time

Now is the Time

01/20/09

You’re searching for the answers for a better world today

Listenin’ to the lyrics of the Singers who share the way

Clappin’ hands and takin’ stands on principles of truth

Oh it’s love that we live for and it’s love that’s shining through

A vision filled with promise, a vision filled with hope

Oh the dream of Martin Luther King arrives when we know

This planet is as brilliant, stunning as a star

When we let go of possessiveness and be just who we are

Oh I know that love and wisdom will prevail

Like a destiny of how to be, much more than a tale

Just open up the hearts and the minds

And realize now is the time to let our spirits fly

Now music, dance and memories are treasures from above

The poet and the prophet offer their gifts to us

For it really doesn’t matter who we are

When we come from our freedom and choose to live as One

When we come from our freedom and choose to live as One

Because I know that love and wisdom will prevail

Like a destiny for which we plead for female and for male

Just open up the hearts and the minds

And realize now is the time as passion comes alive

And the teachers and the healers we thank you here tonight

The writers and believers it was well worth the fight

And anyone and everyone who said yes we can

Oh our thoughts are filled with gratitude; your souls will rise again

For I know that love and wisdom will prevail

Like a destiny for which we breathe uncovering the trail

Just open up the hearts and the minds

And realize now is the time to let our courage climb

For I know that love and wisdom will prevail

Like a destiny for which we seek; walk, run or sail

Just open up the hearts and the minds

And realize now is the time to let this world shine

And realize now is the time to let this world be kind

Hope (Song Lyrics)

Hope

11/15/08

So you’re looking for hope my friend

Something to trust again

Something to let you live your days

Faith in the stars above

Knowing that you are the love

Knowing that your peace is the way

You see hope is stronger than any fear

It brightens rooms and dries up tears

Hope is there for all of us to be

Now some may try to prove us wrong

Put us down, suppress the songs

But spirit knows with hope we have a dream

And hope does not require proof

It knows no blocks, it knows no truth

Still despite it all, this light will shine on through

A world based on trust my friend

A loving heart in a promise land

With peace as the way, yes we can

Because hope is stronger than any fear

It brightens lives and dries up tears

Hope is there for all of us to be

Now some may try to say were wrong

Put us down, ignore the songs

But spirit knows with hope we all can see

For hope wants us to live again

In spite the fears, and loss of friends

Hope wants us to finally see the signs

This power sees the good in all

It does not judge and it does not fall

This treasure yearns to love here for all time

Because hope is stronger than any fear

It brightens hearts and dries up tears

Oh hope is there for all of us to speak

Now some may think that it’s all wrong

Put us down, re-mix the songs

But spirit knows with hope we all can be

You see hope is stronger than any fear

It brightens souls and dries up tears

Yes hope is there for all of us to sing

Still some may try to make us wrong

Lock us up, deny the songs

But spirit knows with hope we all are free

I say hope is stronger than any fear

It brightens eyes and dries up tears

Yes hope is there for all of us to be

And some may even share the fun

Rehearse new words and sing more songs

While others feel the hope inside a dream

Yes some may even share the love

Rehearse new lines and sing more songs

While others send the hope for you and me

Higher Train (Song lyrics)

Higher Train

5/5/06

Now you’re sitting with your shackles on the mystery train of life

Still you carry a demeanour that blazes through the night

The ancient scriptures tell you that the soul is where it’s at

While the rhythm of the city sits alone and dulls the path

You’re tumbling and rolling in your bed while fast a sleep

But when you wake you wonder if the truth is bright or bleak

You’ve reached a point where all your joints are saying one last thing

Oh brother find your reason and get on that higher train

For it can crush the deepest spirit and it neutralizes pain

It makes us lose perspective of why we’re here today

But those moments when the passion connects with the real

Are reminders that the purpose is far greater than our fear?

Looking deep within the darkness, is a journey few will take

Looking for an answer, when the questions are so grey

Hoping for a miracle is weakened by blind faith

But when we trust the strength inside we soon embody fate

Now I was just a poor boy, I didn’t really know the game

I was drawn to impulses, like the flowers are to rain

But when I looked much deeper, of what it all means

I realized so deep inside that the truth is worth the pain

So go on with your life boy, go on just the same

Skimming the waters surface and running from the shame

Disposable society will face its judgment day

But when the final count down comes, will the rubble rise again

Still you’re tumbling and rolling in your bed while fast a sleep

But when you wake you wonder if the truth is bright or bleak

You’ve reached a point where all your joints are saying one last thing

Oh brother find your reason and get on that higher train
