Trippin'

 

 

 

 

Trippin’ over you 
Trippin’ over you 
You doubt it
You doubt me
So I’m cut

Do you find someone when you need them?
I must need you
You doubt it
You doubt me
So I bruise

Would you risk the red lights?
All I have
I’d risk for you
You doubt it
You doubt me
And it hurts

Tell me where you wanna go
Ask me what you wanna know
Make it so I want to stay
Cos I wanna stay anyway

Don’t doubt it
If you doubt me
I might break

Trippin’ over you 
Trippin’ over you 
Trippin’ over you 
Trippin’

Show me where you wanna be
Close my eyes and let me see
That it’s ok to dream of you
Cos you want me to dream it too

I’ll take you where you wanna go
I’ll catch your dreams and keep them close
I’ll give all of myself to you
I need you to believe it’s true

Love Is A Bird

The question I asked was do you or don’t you?
This is not a case of will you or won’t you
Do you love me? Do you love me not?
Cos if it’s the latter then this has got to stop right now

I’m not gunna sit around waiting for you
My love is a bird, looking for a safe place and a warm nest
I’m not gunna sit around waiting for you
My love is a bird, I’m gunna put these wings to test

The problem you say, is that you don’t know how you feel
You try to justify this love as if love itself just ain’t enough
The problem I say, is I can’t make your mind up for you
And although I might like to I’m gunna say
On your marks, get ready, set, go

Shredding piles of paper filled with yesterday’s news
Once the colour of embers and now the feeling of blue
I’ve hit the end of the road, I’m in a windowless room
The things I’ve gotta do now it’s me without you

Put these wings, put these wings to
Put these wings, put these wings to
Put these wings, put these wings to test

~~~~~~~~~~

Own It

It’s been one of those days, one of those weeks
Who knows, maybe it’s one of those years
Kicking the pavement, chasing the pay cheque
Still don’t know where your heart’s at
It’s been such a long time, such a long time

You ask your mother, say how can I know what to think?
When the only thing I know is I don’t know what any of it’s about – she says

It’s about life, it’s about love
It’s about realising you can make it up as you go along
There’s nothing wrong with taking it as it comes

You went on one of those dates You’re gritting your teeth and looking for an exit line Had one of those nights, you planned to be early And caught every red light Stuck in one of those moments Questioning everything you’re been fighting for You don’t know if it’s worth it anymore

You ask your father, say, how can I know what I want?
When the only thing I know is I don’t know what any of it’s about – he says
 
It’s about life, it’s about love
It’s about realising you can make it up as you go along
There’s nothing wrong with taking it as it comes
Living in the moment, you can own it
And be the only one to tell you where you’re going
So lay it all on the line, every single time
You’ve got it goin’ on now
You’ve got it goin’ on now

You can’t recognise up if you don’t know down
You can’t appreciate the sun if you’ve never been covered in cloud
You won’t reach the high if you’ve never been low
That’s the way that life goes, it’s the way that it rolls

So every son or daughter
You can achieve what you put your mind to
And if you’re feeling down
If your heart starts to doubt, remember 

You’ve got it goin’ on now
You’ve got it goin’ on now

Over The Bridge

Love coming down like the leaves this autumn
They’re falling fast, and my heart’s on the floor
It feels so fine, I think I’m gunna loose my mind
The air is so crisp and I’m in control

I’m walking over that bridge and into someone else’s arms  
I’m walking over that bridge and into someone else’s arms  

I’ve got my bean in my cup, heart wants to play
I’m reading the signs, and I’m taking the bait
Drinking into the evening and dancing into the night
Waking up in the morning, it felt so wrong, felt so right
For just one night

Like a fool I waited
Like a fool I hoped for a resolution
A prisoner bound by a ball and chain
I made that choice, I cut those chains, I covered those scars
And I walked over that bridge and into someone else’s arms

It feet so fine, I thought I was gunna loose my mind
When I walked over that bridge and into someone else’s arms
I walked over that bridge and into someone else’s arms

3 Wise Monkeys

See no, hear no, speak no evil, or so the wise monkey’s preach
Do to one as you would to yourself, or so all our teachers like to teach
An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth will only get us so far
It won’t be long before time catches up, when it does will you like who you are?

on’t change for me
Don’t change for anybody but you
Don’t change for me
Don’t change cos I don’t need you too --1
Don’t change cos I don’t want you too --2
Don’t change cos I don’t expect you too --3

Young boy talks to a wise man, says, ‘Sir I, I don’t know what to do’
The wise man turns to the young boy says,
‘Son, maybe you could change a thing or two’
The young boy says, ‘Wise man, you’re old and you’re grey’
‘Can’t you see, I’m just trying to do things my own way’
And the wise man says, ‘Boy, do what you like.’
‘What goes around comes around in its own sweet time so’

Ordinary People

Running down a road, one I’ve come to know
Birds are waking up, close my eyes it feels like home
Thinking about the ship, the one that brought me here
The waves I had to battle, the wind I had to steer through
When my feet found the sand, sand helped me stand
Stand on my own and take a good look around
And my heart had to heal, took time to grieve
Had room to move, had space to breathe

So many mountains, that look like mole hills now
You said I didn’t know what I wanted, but I do, its you
I know the you that I’ve been chasing Isn’t the us that we had

Oh – hoo – hoo – hoo
Oh – hoo – hoo - hoo

A pocket full of dreams, ripped at the seams
Plans turned to dust, dust filled my lungs
And I couldn’t breathe, I couldn’t speak
So I looked to the ocean hoping it would swallow me up
Thinking maybe I could push the feelings under the water
Till they would not come up

It’s so funny how the mind works
You try to be somebody just to please somebody
Then you don’t know where the line is
Where the truth starts and the fairy tale begins
All at once, and once and for all
Your hearts in a mess, you’ve taken the fall
We’re all ordinary people
Ordinary people

Oh – hoo – hoo – hoo
Oh – hoo – hoo – hoo   --- Hey!

You said I didn’t know what I wanted,
But I did, it was you
I know there was love in a life that we once had
I can be happy with that

Make A Change

 

 

 

 

You can spend eternity searching for answers
You can spend your life wishing you could change the past
Take control of situations
If only you could change that person
Your world would be a better place today

If this hadn’t happened and that hadn’t been there
And something else wasn’t getting in your way
Who knows?
Maybe things would have changed by now

The world is what you choose to see
And you are who you define
And if nothing else one day your body is gunna be left behind
What do you want this moment to mean?
What do you want these people to see?

La da da, la da da da da
La da da, la da da da da – oh woah
La da da, la da da da da
La da da da da

Wake Up

 

 

 

 

Wake up sleepy head
It’s about time I got you out of bed
There’s so many things that I wanna do
Guess what I wanna do them with you

I don’t want to hear the reasons
Cos I’ve heard them all before
I’m not trying to hurt your feelings
But I can’t take it anymore
Wake up now!

Come on I wanna see you move
Everybody’s on the floor getting into the groove
Earthquakes happening under my feet
Get on down and blame it on the boogie

I don’t wanna hear, 'I don’t feel like it’
You never feel like it and I don’t like that
I don’t wanna hear what if I look stupid
There’s nothing stupid about having fun
Come on get up now!

Stand up, won’t you come on over
Its about time you whispered in my ear
I’ll have whatever you’re having times two
I wanna exercise my goosebumps with you

I’m just out to have a good time
Don’t need no fine lines holding me back
Woah ah ooh yeah

I’m just out to have a good time
Don’t need no fine lines holding me back
Wake up now, there’s so much to do
Wake up now, I wanna do it with you
Get up now, I wanna see you move
Get up now, put on your dancing shoes
I wanna dance with you

Dreamer

 

 

 

 

I'm a dreamer, I’ve got big dreams
I wanna be more than just a physical being
Touch the hearts of the people I meet oh
I’m a do-er, I like to do more than just what I have too
To get through
Push the envelope and make a change

I’m a fighter, I’ve got to fight for what I think is right
Don’t always like what I’ve got to do
But If not me then who?
Is gunna’ fight for the things I believe in
Gunna’ stand for my hopes and my dreams and
This one’s for all the people in a lonely place
Make your face known

Life is what you make it
You can love or you can hate it
You can jump or you can fall into the puddles along the way
Some run some walk it
Some skip and some crawl it
You can try, or you can speak of dreams and wish them way

I’m a seeker, I like to find the truth for myself
Not just believe blindly
In all the things that you see on the TV
I’m a traveller, I like to go where some have gone before me
I wonder did they see what I see?
I wonder did they dream like I dream?

Where there’s a will there’s a way
It’s doesn’t matter what other people say
All that matter’s is who you choose to be
Open your eyes and you’ll see
Where there’s a will there’s a way
It’s doesn’t matter what other people think
All that matter’s is what you choose to do
Right here, right now,
This moment’s for you
