GARDEN OF EDEN

Dream the way
Dream the way you wish to be
Live the way
Live the way you wish to dream

When I took my first steps
I made choices
I turned away from many promises
Now here I lay
My spirits thriving
This land is good; this land is great
It shall harvest:
A new old way

So, come and see our Garden of Eden
In our backyard
So, come and drink water from our wishing -
Wishing you well

And in the middle of all the burdens
Let there be peace
And in the middle of all the tensions
May we find comfort
Let this home be a refuge
For all who struggle
Let this home be a refuge
For all who …

Come and see our Garden of Eden
In our backyard
So, come and drink water from our wishing –
Wishing you well

Dream the way
Dream the way you wish to be
Live the way
Live the way you wish to dream



BELLS ON YOUR TOES

Hold you in my arms
Your smile has loads of charm
Play with the pots and the pan
That’s where you learned to stand

But, there’ll be traffic lights and crowded streets at night
You’ll carry on; you’ll carry on
I’ll grow old as you grow strong
This I know; this I know
With bells on your toes

Gum Ball, the cane, and you go to school
Work twice as hard - you ain’t nobody’s fool
That’s just the way it is; nothin’ handed to you
That’s just the way it is; you got somethin’ to prove

There’ll be traffic lights and crowded streets at night
You’ll carry on; you’ll carry on
I’ll grow old as you grow strong
This I know; this I know
With bells on your toes

Feel the breeze
Taste the starry night
Dance with the rhythm
You’ve got to live to survive

I’ll grow old as you grow strong
This I know; this I know
With bells on your toes



BEYOUTIFUL

the pressure’s here to stay
wish it would go away
i feel it everyday;
just stay away
i just got betrayed
wish I could walk away
- it happens every day;
just walk away

don’t be afraid to be who you are
don’t be afraid to shine like a star
know yourself; trust yourself
know yourself; love yourself
you’re beyoutiful: be you, be you

so many ways -
they hurt you with a word, a fist
but whatever comes today, remember this:
the past is the past
tomorrow is another day
let the past fade away
and think of this:

don’t be afraid to be who you are
don’t be afraid to shine like a star
they say you’re not beautiful
but I know you are
when you believe it
you will shine like a star

You’re beyoutiful: be you, be you (x4)

the past is the past
tomorrow is another day
let the past fade away
just fade away


Beyoutiful,

FIGURE IT OUT

I don’t know what’s goin’ on
Can’t explain what’s deep inside

And if we get it wrong -
We’ll figure it out

Some might say we’re a little rash
We won’t live the obvious

And if we get it wrong-
We’ll figure it out

Feel a little deeper
Breathe a little more
These are all the answers
We’ve been lookin’ for

I don’t know who’s wrong or right
It don’t matter in my life

‘Cause if we get it wrong-
We’ll figure it out



THE RIGHT TIME

if it be the right time
wake me in the night
I’ll be there with you
if it be the right time
let me know

just like the flowers in the room
we all have a different bloom

if it be the right time
wake me in the night
I’ll be there with you
if it be the right time
let me know

of all the creatures in the sea
you’re most beautiful to me

the moonlight shines -
a thousand faces, a thousand times
I will listen for the calls
I will listen for them all

if it be the right time
wake me in the night
I’ll be there with you
if it be the right time
let me know



AFTER ALL

Oh, my dear, how do you do?
After all
How did you make it through?
After all

After the smoke clears
We’ll still be
After all
After the smoke clears
We’ll still be
After all

We’ll be just like the rest
We’ll be trying our best
After all
When the sun doesn’t shine
We’ll make it up fine
After all

After the smoke clears
We’ll still be
After all
After the smoke clears
We’ll still be
After all



HEY!

Hey!
Let’s go for a swim
Water’s cold, but we dive in

Hey!
Let’s take a chance and
Find the secrets of this great romance

‘Cause we’re happy today, today
Happy today, today (x2)

Hey!
Let’s go for a stroll
How we love these great outdoors

Hey!
Let’s lay down for a little while
How the breeze always makes you smile

‘Cause we’re happy today, today
Happy today, today (X2)

Hey!
I’ll set the table for our friends
How I wish these days would never end



HOLD ONTO YOU

Well the ocean is so full of sharks
Oh and there’s nothin’ you can do, nothin’ you can do
When you’re ready, you’ll make your move
Now that’s what you’ll do, that’s what you’ll do

And the world will seem
Like it’s fallin’ apart
And you’ll feel blue
Be so much to fret about
You just hold onto you

Well the sky, it’s so full of the dark
Oh and there’s nothing you can do, nothin’ you can do
When you’re ready, you’ll find your own lucky star
Now, that’s what you’ll do, that’s what you’ll do

And the world will seem
Like it’s fallin’ apart
And you’ll feel blue
Be so much to fret about
You just hold onto you

You’ll forget your poker face
Just before you get the ace
That’s what you’ll do

Time. It can be so cruel
Oh and there’s nothing you can do, nothing you can do
When you’re ready, you’ll find your own special friend
Now, that’s what you’ll do, that’s what you’ll do

And the world will seem
Like it’s fallin’ apart
And you’ll feel blue
Be so much to fret about
You just hold onto you



BEAUTIFULLY WORN

I had a vision; I saw myself
I was old and beautifully worn
I had a vision; I saw myself
I was tall, tall to your knees
And my hair was wild

But, I thank God
For soldiering
That in the beginning there’s the word
Yes, I thank God
For offering
That with tongues of fire we’ll be heard
Oh, I thank God

For the mosaic is the story
Oh, and difference be the glory

I had a vision; I saw us all
And the pilgrimage had just begun
And we were worn
Oh, beautifully worn
Beautifully worn



WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?

What would you say
If I gave up on love?
What would you say?
What would say?
What would say?

Look into my eyes
Listen to my soul
I can’t compromise
Anymore
What would you say
If I gave up on love?
What would you say?
What would say?
What would say?

Look at the photographs
Listen to the songs
They don’t tell the truth
Anymore

What would you say
If I gave up on love?
What would you say?
What would say?
What would say?

Look inside
Listen too
Walk the road
On your own



THE SEA

In awe we stand
The sea calls her own
One becomes one
