I'M COMING FOR YOU

Girl, your past was a beautiful castle
You were a princess and had your man
Seemed your dreams were coming true
But your plans were on sinking sand

The ocean waters began to rise
The waves whipped their foam about
And when the tide had all come in
You were sadly left with little doubt

All your hopes got washed away
Inside and out you were all alone
You weren't dead but weren't living
Left without a love to call your own

Before you curse those ocean waves
That made shambles of your past
Know you'll rise from a water grave
Resurrected to a love that will last

Even now the current is pulling me
Sweet princess I am on my way
I'm riding waves to find your love
Your tide of hope comes in today

I'm coming for you today
When I come I'm going to stay

I'm coming for you today
When I come I'm going to stay

WHAT MORE CAN I SAY


BY STREET CRIES

DEAR FATHER GOD I COME BEFORE YOUR THRONE 
NO INTERCESSORY PRAY JUST ME ALONE

I LIKE TO START OFF BY GIVEN PRAISE TO YOUR NAME 
THANKING YOU FOR CHANGE
ITS BY YOUR LOVING GRACE THAT MY LIFE HAS BROKEN CHAINS

NO MORE DEEP DEPRESSION OR PAIN
WITH PROGRESSION I SLOWLY OVER CAME
THINGS IN MY LIFE THAT CAUSED UNBEARABLE SHAME

EVEN THOUGH LIFE IS'NT PERFECT I WONT COMPLAIN 
YOU SEE ME THROUGH WHEN IT STORMS AND RAINS
CAUSE OF THAT VICTORY I PROCLAIM 

THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB IGNITES LIFE IN MY VEINS
ITS SIMPLE AND PLAIN OVER ALL CREATION FATHER YOU REIGN
SACRIFICE OF THE SON MAKE JEWS AND GENTILES THE SAME 

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE IS THE BLAME
THE RESULT IS ETERNAL LIFE TO GAIN
MY SITE YOU REARRANGED 

POURING OUT BLESSING FROM HEAVENS WINDOW PANE 
FORGIVING MY TRANSGRESSIONS REMOVING THE STAINS
YOU SEE ALL THAT I DO YET YOUR LOVE STILL REMAINS
AMEN

Reason

You're the reason I love this music,
You're the reason I joined the movement.
Five shots in one night,
Sweat after a big fight,
We're just living life.
The stage is on fire, these folks love it,
My memory is a playlist -- filled with your hits,
My heart is a drum beating to when you say things.
You're the reason I love this,
You're the reason behind your lyrics,
You're the reason I appreciate
The wonderful moments your videos create.
I was floating on misery, until you caught me,
I was filled with envy, until I became me.
You taught to see the light,
You're the reason there's a bright in my nights.
You're reason I came here to write this,
You're the reason I follow the club scenes.
You're the reason the microphone is a song on it's own,
You're the reason I held to my own.
You inspired the kid,
Now I'm going to inspire some kids.

A poem for YOU

In this world of Uncertainties I’m the man that you can trust And in my words of sincerity That my love would never last. And if you could only feel, what i feel for you You can ask me “why?” so you can see the truth Like our love that tightens the rope, Like a light that would give us hope. As you watch the dark skies Let me grab the moon for you, And as I catch the bright stars That’s the way you can see me through As this planet turns as it always will And things go wrong and you don’t know what to feel Hold my hand for it will make us strong Like a wind, we will carry on The wind blow that sings a hymn for you For they know what does love means for the two Love is blind, and not deaf So how’s success if you’re not ready to bet? In this poem with full of rhymes, A full of love, Babe can you be mine? I don’t expect too much from you Why should I? If you complete my whole. “Till death do us part” that’s what they have said But why do struggles crash them ahead? Don’t ask me when my love will last, To count all of our quarrels, is that a must? Now and Forever is all that I promise No day dreaming and without reminiscence As the matter of time, as the time passes by Together we stand, together you and I
A poem for my Girlfriend for our anniversary :) pls comment and rate... you are free to judge and criticize my work :) God Bless

WHEN I WAS YOUNG

Thinking back
when I was young 
I'd sit in church 
and chew my gum 
And write love notes 
to the pretty little girl sitting next to me
I laughed at things 
the preacher said
Until I heard 
how Jesus bled 
and died for me.. On a rugged tree

And God's heart is bigger
Than mine could ever be 
Now I know that for sure 
He'll always take good care of me
Jesus' hands may be rough and torn
But their beautiful, you see.. 
They carried my sin to lowly Calvary

This fellowship 
is so rich and sweet
I married that pretty girl 
and we sit at our Savior's feet
Yeah, our hands in His 
and His hands in ours

And God's heart is bigger
Than mine could ever be 
Now I know that for sure 
He'll always take good care of me
Jesus' hands may be rough and torn
But their beautiful, you see.. 
They carried my sin to lowly Calvary

When I look back I see
What He's done for me..
This is the day the Lord gave me this
Filled my life with peace and bliss
To think what I almost missed
..carried my sin to lowly Calvary

Amen!

AM GLAD YOU DO

___I'm glad you do___

I'm glad you feel me
I'm glad you free me
I'm glad you do help me
‘o sing again.
I'm glad you move it
I'm glad you roll it
I'm glad you do pop it
‘nd make me whole.

In the history, those days won’t soon be forgotten
‘till this time, your words still worth a fortune
They will go nowhere; they will be with me forever
Those nights we shared, they will grow in me as ever.

I'm glad you feel me
I'm glad you free me
I'm glad you do help me
‘o sing again.
I'm glad you move it
I'm glad you roll it
I'm glad you do pop it
‘nd make me whole.

As ever, you're the light I use to see
You're my savior, the one that set me free
You're an angel, that angel at the fore
You're a heroine, that heroine of the war.

I'm glad you feel me
I'm glad you free me
I'm glad you do help me
‘o sing again.
I'm glad you move it
I'm glad you roll it
I'm glad you do pop it
‘nd make me whole.

You set me free and still stay by me
You let me feel… the fresh of where I be
You succor to the battle you do not begin
You let me live… though you do not commit a sin.

I'm glad you feel me
I'm glad you free me
I'm glad you do help me
‘o sing again.
I'm glad you move it
I'm glad you roll it
I'm glad you do pop it
‘nd make me whole.

You're my light, the one I use to see
You're my savior, the one that set me free
You're an angel, that angel I met at the shore
You're that queen, my queen for sure.

I'm glad you feel me
I'm glad you free me
I'm glad you do help me
‘o sing again.
I'm glad you move it
I'm glad you roll it
I'm glad you do pop it
‘nd make me whole.

I'm glad about what you do
You make my heart brand new.
I'm proud of you
I'm glad you do...

HOLDING ONTO YOU

I'm holding on to you
Won't let you drift away
Never going to let you go
Not tomorrow, not today
When the undertow is strong
You feel weak, can't fight
I'll hold you in my arms
Next to you all the night
I'm holding on to you

Life may hit you with a storm
Find yourself on a raging sea
I'll be the lifeline that you need
And pull you into me.. Into me

I'm holding on to you
I'm your fortress, your rock
I cherish your every breath
Protecting you around the clock
I'm keeping all your secrets
I battle to conquer your fear
Never leave or forsake you
By my side I want you near
I'm holding on to you

Life may hit you with a storm
Find yourself on a raging sea
I'll be the lifeline that you need
And pull you into me.. Into me

I'm holding on to you girl
Please hold on to me
I'll be the lifeline that you need
And pull you into me.. Into me

Never giving up (Revised)

(Verse 1)
There’s an aching in my back
An my knees are buckling in
My body’s hurt n bruised
friends r’ say ‘n take a step back ‘n relax

(Bridge)
got so much on my mind  
faster and faster I here myself say
I cant give up when I’m half way through
pure determination drives me hard and true

(Hook)
Never giving up
I can see it now the sun is shine ‘n on me
Never giving up
I’m almost there the inspiration I need

(Verse 2
The devil can try to slow me down
Putting all those boundaries road blocks round
But without a flinch in my face
I’ll jump up move and around 
 
(Bridge)
My destiny is calling to me 
Got lots to accomplish no time to tire
There’s a sunrise coming up in my face
My dreams are right there I’m following through

(Hook x 2) 
Never giving up
been a long time but the sun is shine ‘n on me
Never giving up
I never looked back now I see inspiration in front of me

Yung MCs

Hook: Here's the truth. We gon shine. Yung MCs and that's no lie. Coming up. To our door. Yea we got them flows galore. (Repeat x4)         Verse: Guess who just jumped on the phone. Riding to a new metronome. With his sickish flows. He's hysterical. So scientific, alchemical. And everyone knows I'm genuine. I'm stacking do like innuen. Time for you to tell all your friends that this yung mc is stepping in. The rap game poor. Needs a switch in economics. Cuz a lot of these suckas still talking bout the chronic. Youthful intelligence, call it Malcolm in the middle. You old brothers sit down. Try to learn to widdle. Cuz these yung MCs gonna leave you frikazied.  We a whole new breed. Give the people what they need.  We a brand new sound. From a dusty ghost town. Reborn from the ashes. It had burned to the ground. This yung brother yurns. For the world to hears his words. Because the rap nowadays is so absurd. But I assure you this. When I walk into the room. Put my mouth to the mic. And straight up kill it on a tune. I'll come with a style that'll match any vet. Rhymes way swift  5 blade like Gillette. The level I stand will never be met. Cuz you fly bird. Yet I fly jet. And honestly when we on the scene you hear the sickest similes. Slicing beats with symmetry that cause the haters ears to bleed. I take the light you try to keep. Cuz all your words are obsolete. It's night-night. Time to sleep. Close the crypt. Rest in peace.

Who am I

A tribute to Ramana Maharshi, a man who has inspired me for forty years. a greaty Indian saint he was.....Peter




Who Am I?

Sometimes I ask the question “who Am I?”
Am I just this tiny speck put here by trust?
Just a puppet in the hands of destiny
To be blown within the wind just merely dust.

Then sometimes I’m aware of who I am
As I stand beside a lake or waterfall
As the music of the morning melts into me
And deep within that ancient whisper calls.

Well I ask myself this question
“Will I ever find the way?”
Ramana told me what to do
Said “Do it now, today!”

Oh such a little question one may ask
Does the answer come and blow the mind away?
Will the truth arise to set the bird to freedom?
If one asks this thing each minute of the day.

DOG NAMED BLUE

I had a plain pet rock 
Before it was a fad
I longed for a puppy
Wasn't allowed by dad
So I'd just pretend 
It was my shaggy dog
We'd go on walks
And jump over logs
We'd lay in the grass
And take in the rays
Me and my pet rock
On summer dog days
When school started
I'd take him with me
Kept in my pocket
No one could see
This boy had a dream
Now it's come true
Me and my son
Have a dog named Blue

TEMPERATURE RISING

I'm not ashamed 
To let it show
You light me up 
I feel your glow
My heart is racing
Love the beat inside
Not apologizing
I'm not gonna hide

The feeling's spreading
Like a sweet disease
Your beauty's outrageous 
Knock me to my knees
Don't need a doctor
There's no cure
Girl, you're my fever
That's for sure

Temperature rising
Climbing degrees
Girl, you're my fever
Knock me to my knees
Temperature rising
Oh, taste the heat
Sweet Caliente
Burning, spicy treat

SO LONG AS PEOPLE LIKE TO CHEW

Tragically lost his mom and dad
When he was eight years old
The only thing this boy had
Was a survivor's spirit so bold
Court moved him to the country
He didn't know a single soul
His life had been a busy shovel
That kept digging a bigger hole
No one had been kind to him
But he didn't see it that way
Just smiled through the suffering
He had a dream of a better day
The same year a stranger felt sorry
When they met handed him gum
Didn't chew it, he sold the pack
And his little business had begun
From one pack he bought two
And from those two it grew to four
From four packs he made eight
His emerging business hit the floor
Now it's just a few years later
Everything he touches turns to gold
He's reached the business pinnacle
And he's only 28 years old
This week I was invited to a meeting
So I made the trip from America
To fund a massive orphan program  
In downtown Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
My African friend, the biggest donor
Once an orphan he owns the cause
Ask him why he gives so sacrificially 
He'll smile at you and say because..

When I was just a lonely orphan lad
Nothing going right that I could see
That white dude standing over there
Gave a single pack of gum to me
And one by one I sold each piece
Took those profits to buy even more
And look it's just twenty years later
Now orphan care is what I'm living for
From a desperate hole to a mountain
Never know what's going on inside
All these kids need is an opportunity
They can take it deep and wide
When it comes to caring for the least
Don't say there's nothing you can do
There's always hope for the orphan
So long as people like to chew...

*The climber is through the eyes of a great friend in Ethiopia.  From orphan to one of the most successful young men in the country.

MARCHING FOR DIGNITY




Medals on frames stood upright and straight,
Like guns marching on bloody road to Death March
At eighteen, he bore the pellets of war’s cause
Fingers wounded by splinters from a grenade

Spawned by raw courage for freedom’s glory
He counted black hours guarding his troops;
Piloting aircraft and landing on muddy swamp 
Worse was the order to kick his dead friend, Paul.

Black nights fed thinner ribs with brisk attacks
Riddling air with roulette of mortar sounds,
Yet country’s honor soared higher than gray winds
A testament for a man of lofty ideals.

Tales of grit, battle scars wrapped in dignity
A body resting on heroes’ graveyard, our flag rising;
Until the end, code of gallantry filled life’s moments
Of one general, dear Dad, your spirit walks with me.

The Wedding

Sometimes things are up,
And sometimes they are down,
Sometimes black is white, 
And sometimes it is brown.
All the rivers flowing,
Back to the sacred sea,
All the monkeys climbing,
Up the very same tree.
You think you know a lot,
Think you know it all,
But the autumn leaves are falling,
At the north wind's lonely call.
The thinking of the meaning,
The reasons lost and gone,
At last the place is ready, 
A vacant holy throne.
The emptiness that fill you,
Fills you from inside,
Is the treasure you are holding,
The bridegroom's holy bride.
And now the north wind's blowing,
Blowing down the Way,
And now we sit here waiting,
For the bridegroom's wedding day.

FLYING HOME TO YOU

Flying home to you
Girl, I miss your touch
It's been way too long
Need you so much
My arms don't know 
What they're supposed to do
Just hanging around
Waiting to hold you
My lips only making words
Soon they'll be tasting sweet
When we're together
They'll be feeling heat
In your lover's mind
Oh yeah, burning in his heart
He's already there
Soulmate's never really part
Flying home to you
Living on cloud nine
Oh, your breath gives me wings
Just knowing your mine
Flying home to you 
I'm coming,
I'm coming,
Coming home to you!

Grandma Was Dancing

She was a tappin' to the tunes...
of those Mississippi blues...
step-pin' out, in her white...
Pat-en-leather shoes,

We were a watchin' her a prancin',
all through the kitchen, dancin'...
for she was so...hot & sizzlin'...
hummin' to those Mississippi tunes...

Funny curlers too, upon...
her head...for a new... Hair dew,...
she was, a swirlin'-in that bakers apron,
when her head...star-ted a bobbin' to...
those Mississip-pi blues,

'Pots were a knockin'...
Grandma a sockin' down all she brews,
while that kettle there was whistlin',
in har-mo-ny, with them good ole...
good ole...mississip-pi moves,'

That floor there, was a bouncin'
holdin' hands we were a jumpin',
an-a hoppin' In the kitchen, to those...
                  sounds ...
Where Grandma's feet were a stompin',
In her new...New-white-sexy-pat-en-
leather-shoes...

I'm Comin' Home

Well, I'm high on country music.
And my mind, it won't refuse it.
The memories of our love.
I'm comin' home..

And I'm high on constellations.
Buddy, I've got relations.
The memories of our love.
I'm comin' home..

Now, you see it your way.
And baby, I see it my way.
The memories of our love.
I'm comin' home..

'Cause I'm high on country music.
And my mind, it won't refuse it.
The memories of our love.
I'm comin' home..

And I'm high on constellations.
And buddy, I've got relations.
The memories of our love.
I'm comin' home..

Now, you see it your way.
And baby, I see it my way.
The memories of our love.
I'm comin' home..

'Cause I'm high on country music.
And my mind, it won't refuse it.
The memories of our love.
I'm comin' home..

DEVINE INTERVENTION

Oh, Maarten de Jonge
Alive, you're not gone
Your margin so razor thin

Devine intervention
You must have a mission
More than a cycling win

Flight MH17 shot down
Flight MH370 never found
Yet you flew Malaysia again

Twice blessed now we'll see
What about number three
Tempting fate.. still you grin

*Maarten de Jonge, renowned Malaysian cyclist, was supposed to fly on both Flight MH370, which has yet to be found after disappearing over the Indian Ocean in March, and MH17, which was shot down over Ukraine

Tears In The Wind

Tears In The Wind

Left hand deftly fingering strings on frets, 
While my right hand is picking or strumming. 
Composing a sad song about regrets
And searching a melody by humming. 
I easily find a chord progression,
Played in a melancholy minor key,
Then add some dynamics for expression--
Reaching a fugue-like state releases me
Fleeting perfection is my endeavor.
Like tears in the wind, now lost forever.

The Quality Within Me

The quality that is within me
To see it I had to find the key
Open it up and take a look
It was like a mystery book

So I opened the book and began to read
I was amazed by a single seed 
That was planted in me one day
But it wasn't watered so it withered away

Then I read on and began to see
Other qualities within me
Qualities that are possibilities
As long as I never lost the key

GOD'S KIND OF POETRY

GOD'S KIND OF POETRY

I love you, don't you feel?
Have faith. Trust me.
I am here, I am real.

I love you 'til the ends of the earth
   to the bottom of my heart..
From minute dusts, I adjust
   forming you with my own bear hands
Appointing you to be on high command
   over animals, plants and all others I planned

I love you, don't you feel?
Have faith. Trust me.
I am here, I am real.

I trust you much I let you run and roam
  I got upset you chose lure than obedience
But, I love you so so much that I am still here
   a father waiting for you to come home
Arms spread wide ready to embrace you tight
  Aching to show you more of my love and light

I love you, don't you feel?
Have faith. Trust me.
I am here, I am real.

I know you have been on trash or myriad tests
  to which sometimes you're on bended knee with tears 
Asking; Swearing; Doubting me when bad surprises
  cascade soak then thoroughly bathe you...
Don't you know that while you are in this...
  
I am listening to your shake and tremble
   I am there next to you, sobbing too..
I am hoping for you to remember ME.
   I am hoping for you to call my name.
As I am eager, so eager, to share your burden
   I am ardent, so ardent, to make you smile.

I love you, don't you feel?
Have faith. Trust me.
I am here, I am real.

I love you much that if needed I will sacrifice
 With all I am, I will draw you nearer to me
Not with golden armory of might or power
 but with the Spirit, I have sent to be with you
to remind you that I am here, always with you.
 Just don't you forget to seek me and my Words.

I love you, don't you feel?
Have faith. Trust me.
I am here, I am real.

*** inspired by one of my favorite Christian song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j37Oz1lmnfU 

and Romans 8:37-39:

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Alive

Could you believe, 
something so extrodinary?
Could you percieve,
something so out of the ordinary?

I used to think I was dead
Lots of confusion inside my head
Trying to find something fimilliar
An experience deemd peculiar

I wish i wasnt stuck with this curse
I dont know what I am worth
I belong to another world
Where things arent so cold 
And we never get old

When you dont even know what youre looking at 
In the mirror
Fictional fact,
with a little horror
You start to wonder
what it feels like,
to get hit by thunder

Like I said
Once, in my mind, I was dead
Not inside my head
Not inside my mind
Not the physical kind

When you have been immortal
This life is just a temporary portal
A wormhole
Where you chase, rise and fall
and end up, with nothing at all

I cannot feel, like everyone else
I do not hear, the golden glittering bells
I am subjected to this reality against my will
It makes me illl

Whats the point, of all of this
You may ask
Its all one big twist
We hold on  to something
thats already gone
Thinking on Earth, here's somewhere we belong


Details | Lyric | |

Most folk don't understand

Most folk don’t understand

It seems most folk don’t understand
As each, their role do play
Without no wisdom as of yet
Each mind ruled by the say
Of society’s most recent whim
With it emphases on gain
Most folk don’t seem to understand
They bring on their own pain.

Most folk never look within
Forever their eyes wander
To the sum of their desires
They never seem to ponder
With passion and sincerity
As to what their lives might be
And what’s behind the mask each wears
With all its mystery.

Who am I? each mind must ask
With heart all filled with doubt
This little question must be asked
Each one must work it out
Tis then the light might shine so true
Just like a rose in the morning dew.

This be the art, its wisdoms way
Leave all the rest behind
Don’t listen to the little self
It’s time to hush the mind
And come from that most deepest self
Then harmony might show
And radiate the life with peace
And teach one how to grow.

My Frencholosophy Song

The mud slide back in eighty six
Took out half my farm
And the war that lit up 69 
Is where I Left one arm

My wife and kids have left me
To part's unknown, somewhere
So I sit here all alone
While losing all my hair

        chorus
Now you can see, what my attitude should be
But instead of mulling around 
I get picked up, when I'm down
As I quote that little phase, that tickles me
"C'est La vie" 

My truck was repo-ed yesterday
My dog and cat ran off
My old friends all moved away
And often I feel lost

        chorus
Now you'll agree, just how happy could I be
When my world has gone to hell
I just get up, where I fell
And whisper those sweet words in ecstasy 
"C'est La Vie"

CONFIDENCE


                                                 CONFIDENCE

                          The world is full of people trying to stand out.
                             But they don’t realize that they already do.
                          They try so hard to figure what life’s all about.
                      With all their piercings, Crazy hair, and fresh tattoos.
                           They miss out because of the worry they feel.
                         Will they approve of the way I dress, think, or act?
                           In the spotlight a few moments they might steal.
                    But some of the stupid things they do can’t be taken back.
                           I have a secret that only the few wise ones know.
                              Love who you are and forget what they think.
                             And all the good things in life will soon follow.
                              And you shall rise above all as the critics sink.
                                So meet the world with you head held high.
                                  Let them see the beauty that is in you.
                              Let them see your happiness and joy inside.
                   And know that nobody needs to love you more than you do.

Little do they know

Little do they know
this candle is a torch.
That this torch
a conflagration.

Little do they know
these rocks are a mountain.
That these mountains
are earth.

Little do they know
we still see in the dark.
That the darkness
births sunlight.

Little do they know
these trumpets will call.
That the call
will emancipate.

Raise your head
from its hunched state
knowing that they will one day see
A truest composition of you and me.

For All Time

   Feel your heart pounding inside your chest,
Enjoy all of your life for it is the best.
   Hold tightly to the one that excites you,
Show the love inside you is what you must do.
   Remember to hug with all of your might ,
As you lay yourselves down at night.
   Spend every moment you have making memories,
Of the love you shared for all to see.
   Build your foundation with trust and faith,
Or you'll be all alone and this will be your fate.
   The hopes and dreams you both have ,
Will be wonderful and you'll never be sad.
   Find the path you walk with your heart,
Things in life will go smoothly from the start.
   Do these things and you just might find,
That your love will last for all of time.

My New Way

My New Way –  By Shawn Chadwick Sackman

One day I woke up 
Feeling sorry for myself
Not what I wanted for me
And then it hit me 
Realized I was free to be anything
Had big dreams before, but where had they gone
From that day on I said come-on 
My true test 
Never lose this feeling, feel so blessed

(Pre Chorus)
Heard the choir singing
Oh man I am reeling
Looked up winked, said thanks for the healing

(Chorus)
It’s my new way
It’s the same me, just a new way of trying 
I’m not letting a thing stop me 
From believing, not deceiving 
I know the way, know how it should be, there just for me
Trick is don't lose faith in believing, in the gift of receiving
It’s clear now that it’s a really new day
For my new way

I now want to try, to see what’s next
Got list of things to do, from my new view
I’m so okay, think I’ll stay

(Pre Chorus)
Heard the choir singing
Has me really reeling 
No no’s, just say yes and go
It’s a great feeling, want everyone to know

(Chorus)
It’s my new way 
It’s the same me, just a new way of trying
I’m not letting a thing stop me
From believing, not deceiving 
I know the way, know how it should be, there just for me
Trick is don't lose faith in believing, in the gift of receiving
It’s clear now that it’s a really new day

‘Cause I know this feeling helps me
Help others who can’t see
Not like before, no gray days for me
Oh what a day

My new way
Oh, I know it’s not just my new way
My new way

Like a bird

Like a bird

Like a bird up in a treetop
Singing, tenderly
This little bird I know him well
This creature it be me
I sit here with my pen in hand
And sing so crazily
With symbols shining out like gold
I give my song to thee

These words, they be my  message
I sing them to the sky
One day his body will be gone
But the words will never die
They well up from my very soul
Without no help from me
I am that bird up in a tree
With his lone symphony.

And lord, I like to share it
I will whisper from the stars
And tell the world I am this bird
Send vibes out wide and far
That sing about the journey
The only one I know
As I’m sending out my story
In words that make it glow.
