BACK TO LOVE

YOU AND ME CARRY LIFE’S DISAPPOINTMENTS LIKE A WEIGHT ON OUR BACKS
CAN WE BRING IT BACK BRING IT BACK TO LOVE?
ALL OUR PAINS IN THE ARMS OF OUR PASSIONS KEEP US FROM WHAT IS NEXT

CAN WE BRING IT BACK BRING IT BACK TO LOVE?
I KNOW THAT WE WANT TO GET IT RIGHT
WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO STAND AND FIGHT FOR LOVE

THE MEMORY’S LONG FOR THE WRONGS HAVE BEEN DONE US
& TURNIN CHEEKS IS TOO HARD
CAN WE BRING IT BACK BRING IT BACK TO LOVE?
ALL THE COMFORT OUR ANCESTORS FOUGHT FOR NOW IS BURNING TOO FAR

CAN WE BRING IT BACK BRING IT BACK TO LOVE?
I KNOW THAT WE WANT TO GET IT RIGHT

IT AINT GONNA COME WITHOUT A FIGHT FOR LOVE
AND IF WE WANT TO SEE THE WORLD KEEP TURNING BEAUTIFUL
WE CAN’T KEEP OUR EYES CLOSED
IT IS GOING TO TAKE SOME SACRIFICE TO TURN THE PULL FROM
OUR DESTRUCTION TO OUR GROWTH

CAN WE BRING IT BACK BRING IT BACK TO LOVE?
CAN WE BRING IT BACK BRING IT BACK TO LOVE?

I KNOW THAT WE WANT TO GET IT RIGHT
IT AINT GONNA COME WITHOUT A FIGHT FOR LOVE

YOU AND ME WITH THE WORLD’S DISAPPOINTMENTS
LIKE A BABE IN OUR ARMS
Track Name: Every Little Thing
EVERY LITTLE THING
EVERY LITTLE THING THAT I HEAR ON THE RADIO
EVERY PIECE OF NEWS IN THE AIR
EVERY LITTLE OBSTACLE LAID OUT IN FRONT OF ME
EVERY TIME I SEE SOMEONE ELSE WHO CAN’T CARE

EVERY LITTLE ROCK THROWN AGAINST A TALL TANK AND
EVERY YOUNG WOMAN BEAT DOWN
EVERY LITTLE DROP OF POISON IN THE OCEAN
HAS ME WONDERING HOW

WE’RE GONNA BE OKAY
ARE WE GONNA BE OKAY HEY

EVERY LITTLE WORD THAT YOU THROW IN MY FACE WHEN
YOU JUST CAN’T TAKE ANYMORE
EVERY TIME I LOOK IN THE MIRROR AND NOTICE
HOW MY FACE IS REFLECTING THE CHORE

EVEN THOUGH I KNOW THIS IS ALL AN ILLUSION
I CAN’T SEEM TO MAKE MYSELF SURE

WE’RE GONNA BE OKAY
ARE WE GONNA BE OKAY

HEY C’MON NOW LOOK AROUND THIS IS NOT HOW IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE
WE KEEP PLAYING OUT THE SAME OLD STORY I PROMISE YOU IT’S NOT GOING TO

BE OKAY
WE’RE NOT GOING TO BE OKAY
IF WE KEEP HEADING THIS WAY
IT’S NOT GONNA BE OKAY

I’LL TAKE MY CHANCES WITH YOU FOR TODAY
I’LL TAKE MY CHANCES WITH YOU IF WE CAN LEAD THE WAY
I’LL TAKE MY CHANCES WITH YOU JOIN ME TODAY
I’LL TAKE MY CHANCES WITH YOU CAN WE LEAD THE WAY
Track Name: Blessed One
BLESSED ONE

DEAR BLESSED ONE, MY LIGHT MY LOVE THE DREAM I’M LONGING FOR
I CAN SEE YOU TONIGHT YOU’RE A VISION THAT’S BRIGHT
AND WHEN I DO, A MOMENT THAT IS TRUE A VISION OF
PURE LOVE SHINING THROUGH SAYING I DO

AND MY LOVE I TELL YOU KNOW I KNOW WHAT MAKES MY HEART SING LOUD AND TRUE, SAYING I DO

CUZ I DON’T WANT TO BE ALONE ANYMORE THIS IS NOT WHAT I WAS BORN FOR
I WON’T TAKE ONE MORE STEP WITHOUT YOU HERE
DON’T WANNA DO IT ON MY OWN ANYMORE THIS IS NOT WHAT I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR
TO LIVE MY LIFE BEHIND A CLOSED DOOR

SO I SAY I SAY TO YOU TONIGHT I START ON A
NEW LIFE THAT IS CLEAR, LIFE BEYOND THE FEAR
AND WHEN FEAR COMES I WILL NOT BE UNDONE I WILL KNEEL DOWN
AND GIVE YOU MY TEARS, KEEP MY VISION CLEAR

CUZ I DON’T WANT TO BE ALONE ANYMORE THIS IS NOT WHAT I SIGNED UP FOR
I WON’T LIVE ONE MORE DAY BEHIND THIS WALL
DON’T WANNA DO IT ON MY OWN ANYMORE I’LL TELL YOU WHAT I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR
TO FACE THIS LIFE WITH AN OPEN HEART

AND HOW OLD WAS I WELL WHO COULD SAY WHEN I LOCKED THE DOOR AND SENT YOU AWAY
NEVER TO COME AGAIN, SO LONELY WITHOUT FRIENDS

AND EVER SINCE I PLAYED THIS GAME TO DO IT RIGHT AND NEVER SAY
I NEED YOUR HELP I CAN’T MAKE IT BY MYSELF
YEAH I NEED YOUR LOVE, THIS EMPTY ROOM IS NOT ENOUGH

CUZ I DON’T WANT TO BE ALONE ANYMORE YOU ARE WHAT I”VE BEEN DYING FOR
I WON’T LIVE ONE MORE DAY WITH ALL THIS FEAR
NO I WON’T DO IT ON MY OWN ANYMORE I WILL CHOOSE TO OPEN UP THE DOOR
YOU AND I ARE ONE, TOGETHER IN THE TRUTH, SO IT SHALL BEGIN
AS I SAY I DO
Track Name: Imagine The Sun
IMAGINE THE SUN

IT’S MIDNIGHT
I’M STILL AWAKE
CLOUDS OVERHEAD
AND IN MY HEAD
SAME CLOUDS SAME DARK NIGHT
HOW I WISH IT WOULD CLEAR MY SKY

AND MY EYES BLACK NO STARS
LIKE A RAINSTORM THAT TEARS YOU APART
AND I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S COMING TOMORROW
BUT I CAN’T EVEN IMAGINE THE SUN

OH HOW I WISH I COULD FEEL THE HEAT
SO COLD FROM MY HEART TO MY FEET
AND MY HANDS, AND MY BLOOD AND MY BODY NEED SOME LOVE
THE SUN SOME HEAT

BUT MY EYES BLACK NO STARS
LIKE A RAINSTORM TEARS YOU APART
AND I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S COMING TOMORROW
BUT I CAN’T EVEN IMAGINE THE SUN

IF I GET TO SEE YOUR FACE WILL I WANT TO ANYWAY
IF I GET TO SEE YOUR FACE WILL I WANT TO ANYWAY
IF I GET TO SEE YOUR FACE WILL I WANT TO ANYWAY
IF I GET TO SEE YOUR FACE WELL I DON’T KNOW BUT

I CAN’T EVEN, SAID I CAN’T EVEN IMAGINE THE SUN

DO DO DO
I CAN’T IMAGINE THE, THE SUN
I CAN’T EVEN IMAGINE THE SUN
Track Name: Lay It Down
Lay It Down

Am I Crazy I don't think so
But the way you talk to me baby I don't know
And am I lost one things' for certain
This ain't the place I call home

Cuz if we linger here we'll lose it
Ain't our fault babe but we're choosing it right now
So can we lay it down

Lay me down in a field of lilies
Holy white growing in the sun
Lay me out in the grass so green
Yeah and give me love

Cuz if we keep running we'll die here
Ain't no glory in these fast defended lines
So can we change our minds

Baby time and money and moving
This urban city life is killing me
I ain't got time to stop and breathe
Much less to hold my own, much less to hold my own

Are we sitting here losing faith
Are we stuck in this crazy race
Cuz if we walk I wanna stay on solid ground

And if we linger here we'll lose it
Ain't our fault babe but we're choosing
I said if we linger we'll lose it
No right or wrong babe
But we're choosing it right now

So can we lay it down
Ah come on lay it down
Well can we lay it down
Track Name: Percents
Percents

1 in 10 teenagers attempting suicide
2 in 10 little boys can’t find no place to hide
3 in 10 little girls in the same catastrophe
How many of us turn our heads cuz it’s too sad to see

4 in 10 Americans are physically obese
6 in 10 teen woman say no to their men who do not listen
5 in 10 people in the world in poverty
Said again that’s 1 in 2, could be me, could be you

So what percentage of your heart is on the line
And what percentage of your vision sees the time passing by
How many people do these numbers represent
All of us are stuck here hey that’s 100 percent

7 in 10 children getting bullied and pushed around
8 in 10 living in a substandard house
9 in 10 people hold less than 1 percent
Of all the world’s money I don’t think that’s what God meant

So what percentage of your heart is on the line
And what percentage of your vision sees the time passing by
How many people do these numbers represent
All of us together hey that’s 100 percent

Black men are 6 more times likely
To live their lives behind bars
And we are coming oh so close to
Our atmosphere denying us a vision of the stars

So what percentage of your soul is on the line
And what percentage of your eyes see the time passing by
What could we do if we just made some time to spend
All of us could change things if it’s 100 percent
Yeah all of us in the same boat that’s one hundred percent
