Song Lyrics

HOW TO BE YOUR FRIEND

 

You say I don’t understand, I tell you I do,

I know what you’re going through

So you shut me out, and I take it in

Can’t figure out what to do

 

I tell you it’s wrong, you say you know,

but you’re still choosing this path to follow

You take to the road, and leave me to think

Could I have stopped you from going?

 

Stand up tall, don’t you raise your white flag in the air

Don’t say it’s too late to show how much I care

Forgive me, maybe your road would have some different bends

Had I known how to be your friend

 

I tell you to change, you say you can’t

I couldn’t hear what you really meant

Your silent screams go over my head

Disguised as indifference

 

 

Stand up tall, don’t you raise your white flag in the air

Don’t say it’s too late to show how much I care

Forgive me, maybe your road would have some different bends

Had I known how to be your friend

 

You don’t need me to say this is not the right way, what you need is my hand

I saw that look in your eyes that night and now I understand

You don’t want to hear what you shouldn’t be doing, only now i see it

Love is all, love is all you needed

Love is all, love is all you needed

 

Stand up tall, don’t you raise your white flag in the air

Share your burden with me I’m telling you now how much I care

Forgive me, maybe your pain could have been a little less

Had I known how to be your friend

Please let me be your friend

 

HEARTBEAT

 

Sometimes your faith

Seems to escape through

The cracks that you never knew you made

 

Sometimes the pain

Tries to consume you

But time keeps on turning and things change

 

Just like a heartbeat

That’s rising and falling

Sinking and soaring-

It keeps you alive

 

There will always be ups and downs

There’s no time to waste for staying on the ground

A struggle makes you stronger in the end

Believe that it’s true

You know you’ll survive

When you hear 

Your heartbeat, your heartbeat

 

Sometimes you smile,

The world smiles back at you

and understands your spirited mind

 

Sometimes you fly,

The view is so beautiful

But even birds land once in a while

 

Just like a heartbeat

That’s rising and falling

Sinking and soaring-

It keeps you alive

 

There will always be ups and downs

There’s no time to waste for staying on the ground 

A struggle makes you stronger in the end

Believe that it’s true

You know you’ll survive

When you hear 

Your heartbeat, your heartbeat

 

And life goes on when you don’t think it can

And when you fall, you’ll learn how to stand

Cuz the road will never be smooth

The ins and the outs are what life’s all about

And learning how to smile through it all

 

Just like a heartbeat

That’s rising and falling

Sinking and soaring-

It keeps you alive

 

There will always be ups and downs

There’s no time to waste for playing around

Believe that you’re stronger than you think

You’ll see that it’s true

You know you’ll survive

When you hear

You know you’ll be fine

Cuz you feel 

Your heartbeat, your heartbeat

Little Girl

 

I used to dream of angel wings and princesses

Fantasize what life could be

I’m still that girl wishing on a star

Where I hope my fairytales will be

 

Life has a way of turning days into years

 

Here I am holding onto that little girl

Entering a confusing world

Trying to make my way

 

Here I am holding on to that little girl

Safe in her innocent world

And so unafraid

 

I used to cry when someone yelled at me

Not ashamed to shake in fear

I used to hold hands with my best friends

Brave enough to show I care

 

Life has a way of turning dreams into nightmares

 

Here I am holding onto that little girl

Entering a confusing world

Trying to make my way

 

Here I am holding on to that little girl

Safe in her innocent world

And so unafraid

 

I still need to be held tight

Told that I’m gonna be alright

I’m still that little girl inside

Under my big girl disguise

 

Here I am holding on to that little girl

Entering a brutal world

I’m trying to find my place

 

Here I am holding onto that little girl

I know it’ll be okay

So I’m not afraid

 

Here I am holding onto that little girl

Inside Out

 

I heard from a smart guy the outside is just a lie

When joy is not flying in your heart you can’t start to soar

You gotta live life to the beat of your soul,

It feels right when it’s not just a show anymore

 

I, I wana try

I, I wana fly

 

Happiness only comes from the inside, inside, inside out

It’s only real when it comes from the inside, inside, inside out

When you find that spark in you that shines like a glowing light in the darkest night

Happiness only comes from the inside, inside, inside out

 

I heard from a smart man it’s not about running around, you’re just running away from the pain you’ve found

You gotta live creating the joy you’ll have,

Music’s playing inside though you hear no sound

 

I, I’m gonna try

I, I’ll find a way to fly

 

Happiness only comes from the inside, inside, inside out

It’s only real when it comes from the inside, inside, inside out

When you find that spark in you that shines, like a glowing light in the darkest night

Happiness only comes from the inside, inside, inside out

 

Though it’s not easy to find that feeling of elation

I’m gonna search from deep inside and follow my intuition

I know though the instant is fast, it won’t last very long

Day by day, ill take it slowly from the inside out

Until I’m strong

 

Happiness only comes from the inside, inside, inside out

It’s only real when it comes from the inside, inside, inside out

So bright like a shooting star across the black sky, shining rays of light

Happiness only comes from the inside, inside, inside out 

 

Inside, inside out

A Different Key

 

I’m trying to talk, but it seems nobody’s here

Everyone’s around but they won’t stop to care

I just wana be heard but no one’s listening

The more I try, my voice is fading

 

Everyone’s singing but they’re singing their own song

Why can’t we all join along?

Together in harmony, listening

to every note

 

If we blend our voices together in unison

We can make beautiful music

Don’t sing too loud or you might miss out

On some other great melody

Even if it’s on a different key

 

Everyone’s busy, they don’t want to hear

How my day was, and why I went where

Living their own lives, oblivious

Not realizing how much they’re missing

 

Everyone’s singing but they’re singing their own song

Why can’t we all join along?

Together in harmony, listening

to every note

 

If we blend our voices together in unison

We can make beautiful music

Don’t sing too loud or you might miss out

On some other great melody

Even if it’s on a different key

 

Everyone has a key that they live on

Some are high, some are low, and some are in between

Live and love, laugh and cry, just feel something real

Tune into what others are saying to you

There’ll be so much more awaiting you

There’s a lot you can learn it’s not hard to find if you open your mind

 

Everyone’s singing but they’re singing their own song

Why can’t we all join along?

Together in harmony, listening

To every note

 

If we blend our voices together in unison

We can make beautiful music

Don’t sing too loud or you might miss out

On some other great melody

Even if it’s on a different key

 

A different key

 

COMPLICATED

 

Oh-oh complicated, Oh-oh complicated

Oh-oh-oh complicated

 

Going down the road it’s perfectly clear in my mind

Strong enough to face whatever comes to be

Riding along the waves of clarity,

Turned into uncertainty I’m drowning

I’m drowning

 

Things that seemed so simple then, now hard to figure out

Things I was so sure about, I’m starting to doubt

 

It’s so complicated, was clear but faded

Into a hazy lie

The colors that were beautiful

Now blurred before my eyes

Why is it so hard?

Why is it so hard-just to live my life?

 

Glided through the days like a bird in flight,

I lifted up my wings until I soared

Then landed in a mess of such confusion

Couldn’t carry myself anymore

Couldn’t carry myself anymore

 

All I tried to build up is crashing down in flames

Left in a heap of rubble that can't seem to be explained

 

It’s so complicated, was clear but faded

Into a hazy lie

The colors that were beautiful

Now blurred before my eyes

Why is it so hard?

Why is it so hard-just to live my life?

 

Oh-oh complicated, oh-oh complicated

Oh-oh-oh complicated x2

 

It’s so complicated, was clear but faded

Into a hazy lie

The colors that were beautiful

Now blurred before my eyes

Why is it so hard?

Why is it so hard-just to live my life?

 

It’s so complicated, was clear but faded

And now I just can't see

I’d never believe, in my wildest dreams,

That I’d feel so incomplete

Why is it so hard?

Why is it so hard?

 

Change

 

It’s easy to let it slide

And push those thoughts aside

Ignore the reason ur alive

Cuz ur busy wasting time

 

It’s simple to let it go

And hope that one day you'll know

How to take control

And really start to grow

 

Even though it’s hard to

make a change and start to

find out what ypu're living for

one day you’rheart will open

to all that you’ve been told and

finally you’ll start to soar

 

after the pouring rain the sun starts to shine

when you feel there’s nothing left, you're never empty inside

when the sky gets dark it's when you see the stars

please believe it’s never too late to change and be all you are

 

it’s harder to decide

how to live your life

become all you wana be

and love it all the while

 

it’s difficult to really see

and look inside truthfully

assess yourself honestly

and change direction entirely

 

Even though it's hard to

make a change and start to

find out what you’re living for

one day your heart will open

to all that you’ve been told and

finally you’ll start to soar

 

after the pouring rain the sun starts to shine

when you feel there’s nothing left, you're never empty inside

when the sky gets dark it's when you see the stars

please believe it’s never too late to change and be all you are

 

If this was your last day on earth

would you care as little as you do?

Do u know wat you're worth?

G-d is waiting for you

Wud you try just a little

to find out why you’re here?

Your potential for greatness

Is really what you fear

 

After troubled times the air starts to clear

what goes around comes around, you know there’s nothing to fear

when the sky gets dark the stars are all you see

please believe it’s never too late to change there’s so much you were meant to be

 

 

 

 

 

Edge Of Prayer

 

The spirit inside of me Is hanging on by a thread

So I'm asking you please G-d tell me when this will end

Bruised and breaking, my heart is aching to be free

Begging you with all the strength I have left to help me

 

I'm standing here on the edge of prayer Trying not to look down as I'm waiting Won't you come a little closer now

Promise me things will turn around

Once I prayed all there's left to do Is wait Patiently for you to save me from falling down

I'll keep my ground on the edge of prayer

 

I'm all alone here In my world of endless tears to hide

Luckily I've got Someone who's always on my side

Through it all, every single painful fall Knowing you're with me keeps me standing tall

 

I'm standing here on the edge of prayer Trying not to look down as I'm waiting Won't you come a little closer now

Promise me things will turn around

Once I prayed, all there's left to do Is wait Patiently for you to save me from falling down 

I'll keep my ground on the edge of prayer

 

There's only one place to turn And I know Inside it's true

Bring us home I can't bear to be so far away from You

Standing up here with so much to fear

The world lays down below

I need you with me faithfully, I can't do this on my own

 

I'm standing here on the edge of prayer Looking at the heavens as I'm waiting

I can feel you coming closer now

Telling me things will turn around

Once I prayed all there's left to do is change The way I view the worldc stop the pain from

Holding me down I'll keep my ground

On the edge of prayer

I'll keep my ground, I'll keep my ground

On the edge of prayer

GREATNESS

 

As I’m lying down my head tonight

After a long day, I’m worn out and tired

I’ve let You down again, crossed those lines that were red

Without a care in my mind

Led by my heart, I didn’t think twice

 

I wouldn’t blame You

If today was my last

But I know You’re not like that

 

You give me another chance today

Though I failed

Your faith in me makes me believe

Every day comes and I still haven’t changed

But You never give up on me

 

I wake up with determination

I’ve got a new day to fulfill your vision

So I try real hard, lift up my wings to fly

Like I’ve never done

Only to fall with all my broken aspirations

 

And I wouldn’t blame You

If today was my last

But I know You’re not like that

 

You give me another chance today

Though I failed

Your faith in me makes me believe

Every day comes and I still haven’t changed

But You never give up on me

 

So I’ll give all I have

Chase it down til it’s in my hands

I’ll find the greatness in me

I’ll fight through the tests

Every day, take a step

Til I find my destiny

Every day’s another chance for greatness

As long as you let me

 

You give me another chance today

Though I failed

Your faith in me makes me believe

Every day comes and I still haven’t changed

But You never give up on me

 

You give me another chance cuz I haven’t failed

I’m slowly working towards eternity

If G-d thinks I can, I’d be blind not to see

Yes there’s room for greatness in me

Oh there’s still room for greatness in me

 

SHINE

 

I wake up to the rain outside my window

Every drop a reflection of my inner pain

I gather my strength to get up again somehow

Hide the tears that are lingering on my face

 

My act can fool for a while

Though inside I’m crying

I know all the reasons to smile

Still my spirit is dying

 

I keep telling myself

 

The sun does shine, underneath

Ever so brightly, but I just don’t see

past the cloudy line

The sun does shine, underneath

Forever faithfully, it will always be

There for me to see

 

I’m walking along the lines of monotony

Never straying, I’m praying to just get somewhere

I’m hearing my footsteps as if it’s not me

In my mind, my real life is so far away from here

 

My act can fool for a while

Though inside I’m crying

I know all the reasons to smile

Still my spirit is dying

 

I keep reminding myself

 

The sun does shine, underneath

Ever so brightly, but I just don’t see

Past the cloudy line

The sun does shine, underneath

Forever faithfully, it will always be

There for me to see

 

It’s shining on me

Melting away my fear

I have to believe

I may not see it but it’s always there

 

The sun does shine, underneath

Ever so brightly, but I just don’t see

Past the cloudy line

The sun does shine, underneath

Forever faithfully, it will always be

There for me to see

 

A HUNDRED MILLION REASONS

 

This world

Can push you around

And bring you down so easily

Closed doors

And broken dreams

Giving up is the only way- it seems

 

But don’t lose hope

Don’t close your eyes to all the good

That’s in front of you

 

I have a hundred million reasons why

I should be crying but I’m pushing on

I have a hundred million reasons why

I feel it’s too late to change things

But I know that I’ve got to stay strong

I have to believe He’s never wrong

What’s here is meant to be and if I look

A little harder ill see

There’s beauty in everything

 

Ohohoh waohoh

 

This world

Can be so tough

But in some ways, it’s so simple

It’s one life

And it’s your choice

How u wanna live it

 

So don’t lose hope

Don’t close your eyes to all the good

That’s in front of you

 

I have a hundred million reasons why

I should be crying but I’m pushing on

I have a hundred million reasons why

I feel it’s too late to change things

But I know that I’ve got to stay strong

I have to believe He’s never wrong

What’s here is meant to be

And if I look a little harder I’ll see

There’s beauty in everything

 

Ohohoh waohoh

 

Happiness isn’t a destination to reach-

but a way of traveling

Today is never too late to be

all that you’ve dreamed

and start enjoying & living for

All there is to be grateful for

more than the hundred million reasons

Why I just can’t see it

 

I have a hundred million reasons why

I should be crying but I’m pushing on

I have a hundred million reasons but

It’s never too late to change things

 

I have a hundred million reasons why

I should be crying but I’m pushing on

I have a hundred million reasons but

It’s never too late to change things

cuz I know there’s one reason so strong

I know that G-d is never wrong

What’s here is meant for me

And if I look a little harder ill see

There’s beauty in everything

 

Ohohoh waohoh

 

I have a hundred million reasons why

I should be crying but I’m pushing on

 

 

I STILL HAVE YOU

I take the bullet like a pro by now

Keep my head up, my eyes off the ground

Give it to me, all the reasons to let go

But I’ve come too far to give up the fight so,


How do I go on when there’s nowhere to go?

How can I stay strong when I see no road?

How do I believe when it all ever leads me to is here…

Barely breathing this deceiving air

 

I still have You

And that’s everything I’ll ever need

I know the Truth, my faith is what will carry me

Through the hard times, the terrifying dark

The kind of pain that rips me apart

When there’s nothing left to say and nothing I can do

I still have You (Oh I still have you)

I still have You (Oh I still have you)

 

Bring it on, I can brave what’s said and done

Wash my face and face what has become

I can fly and find You in everything

And I never dreamed it would ever be enough for me 

 

How do I go on when there’s nowhere to go?

How can I stay strong when I see no road?

How do I believe when it all ever leads me to is here…

Choked up, hands numb, from wiping away my tears

 

I still have You

And that’s everything I’ll ever need

I know the Truth, my faith is what will carry me

Through the hard times, the terrifying dark

The kind of pain that rips me apart

When there’s nothing left to say and nothing I can do

I still have You (Oh I still have you)

I still have You (Oh I still have you)

 

Take me now, let me live out the plans You made

I never knew where I was going anyway

Pick me up from the floor, from abandonment and tortured love

You know my heart broke a million times, and I always try to find the meaning

But now my soul has lost it’s hope, tell me- what is this feeling?

 

I still have You

I still have you

 

Through the hard times, the terrifying dark

The kind of pain that rips me apart

When there’s nothing left to say and nothing I can do

The world can fall away, You’re my only Truth

I still have You (Oh I still have you)

I still have You
