Rise Higher

People talk about what they know
There’s a lot of places that we can go
In the sunshine, there’s no worry
Life’s not a race, so what’s the hurry

If reality faces me at the front door
I’ll keep knocking and begging for more
I believe in a place called Heaven
It’s six o’clock, may as well be seven

The future is near and I’m moving closer
Fly my wings on life’s roller coaster
The crash of waves, sounds of the ocean
The bright night sky, stars set in motion

I’ve been begging the places we’ve been
To take back shame and end this sin
Trace back time to places we know
Our past mistakes bring time to grow

The sound of the bees gets me humming
Let’s take off while I’m still drumming
What we started at the top of the moon
Hold on loving, we’ll be home soon

I’ll sprout my wings with The Light blue sky
Bloom what’s true on life’s greatest high
If I fall, I’ll rise again
Back to where it all begins

Shine Bright

When star gates bring hours
And raindrops wash away
Time tells of the towers
Show love is here to stay

When starlight’s last the night
And the sun comes to play
The future is so bright
Like the weather in May

When fairy tales come true
And the butterflies sing
Believe in what you do
Like Tulips born in Spring

You’re blossoming each day
I’m proud of who you are
Shine bright like a sun ray
Shine bright like every star

The Honky Tonk Moon

The honky tonk moon brings out what’s true
The honky tonk moon is for me and you
Let’s honky tonk baby, swing in The Light
Honky tonk maybe and make things right

I’ll meet you outside at a quarter to noon
From dust to dawn, I’ll bring the full moon
You got me howling still wanting more
Just like Heaven, real men open doors

Let’s honky tonk through to find out what’s true
My heart’s bleeding and the sky is blue
The birds are chirping and singing along
I finally found a place where I belong

The honky tonk moon brings out what’s true
The honky tonk moon is for me and you
Let’s honky tonk baby, swing in The Light
Honky tonk maybe and make things right

I’m counting on our love like the stars in the sky
I’ll take you higher and we’ll learn to fly
We’ll honky tonk to love, it’ll be alright
You’re the brightest star in my room tonight

With arms open wide, we’ll carry through
Hold on strong ‘cause I’m still loving you
We’ll honky tonk along and stay up all night
Shining like a candle, our love’s so bright

I Can See Clearly Now Remix

I can turn all of my past inside out
I can face all of my past that’s in my way
I’m going through a way, going through a change
I’ll focus on The Light, Light
Every day

I want to see this through, I know just how
I’ll focus on The Light that’s inside of me
I know I’ll make it through, I can’t stop now
I’ll focus on The Light, Light
Every day

Look around you, The Light is shining bright
Look above, The Light is shining bright

I can turn all of my past inside out
I can face all of my past that’s in my way
I’m going through a way, going through a change
I’ll focus on The Light, Light
Every day

Back to You

I’ll take you to the bathtub in our bathroom
I’ll take you to the hot tub, I’ll show you what’s true
I’ll take you to the dance floor, I’ll take you to the moon
The one place I can’t go is inside of you

Looking back on pictures of how things used to be
Tearing down my bedroom wall of old memories
Wishing I could take you back so you can see
The person I am, let me take you to my reveries

Let’s go back to Grandma’s house, the place where I was raised
Let me take you back to those good old days
Let’s go back to the nights where I stayed out too late
The morning’s I woke up at a quarter past eight

Hoping I can see this through to what I used to know
Trying to find my way back, just where I should go
Take away these feelings that have me feeling low
Light me up inside and watch how bright I glow

This is us, this is me, this is how things used to be
This is life, this is true, so let’s gets back to you
Let me take you back so you can see
The person I am, let me take you to my reveries

I’ll take you to the bathtub in our bathroom
I’ll take you to the hot tub, I’ll show you what’s true
I’ll take you to the dance floor, I’ll take you to the moon
The one place I can’t go is inside of you

When we were young life used to be so easy
Can we get back to how things used to be
Let me take you back so you can see
The person I am, I’ll take you to my reveries

Hope

Hoping somebody knows where to go
Since I’ve been lost along the road
Thinking of a place where I belong
Where I won’t be judged for living wrong

I’ve been losing count while counting sheep
Hearing voices in my head saying get some sleep
I’ve traveled so far, I forgot who I was
Let me find myself before anybody does

Hope shines out in the darkest despair
Sometimes I wonder, does anyone care
Endless thoughts racing in my head
It’s hard to forget what somebody said

I fell to the ground then bounced back up
Pain is the reason I am so tough
God won’t forsake me and neither will I
I’ll see this through with an open third eye

Changes

Changes
You pop up and air it out
You hop in and bounce out without it
All these changes got me going through fazes
The way I’m living feels like the shooting ranges

I’m tired of going through changes with these racist faces
Can anyone win in this game that we’re playing
I’m hoping this time I’ll beat all of my cases
People all talk, it’s hard to hear what they’re saying

These streets made me but I’m tired of living wrong
Sin so much, I hope Heaven still calls me home
It’s been raining all day, been wishing pain along
When you need someone, they don’t pick up the phone

All these changes are wearing down on me
Called my mama, she told me to let it be
No father around, it’s hard to know who to trust
Put the clip in and this time I’ll bust

Changes
You pop up and air it out
You hop in and bounce out without it
All these changes got me going through fazes
The way I’m living feels like the shooting ranges

All my friends changed, I swear they’re all fake
No matter what you give, all they wanna do is take
When you turn around, they’re taking what you have
You treat ‘em good, but they’re still wishing you bad

I’ve been facing all these problems with no one by my side
When you need someone, they don’t ever wanna ride
I haven’t changed up, this time I’ll get my change up
Riding with the dollar signs on my way to Lady Luck

I’m hoping this time I can make things right
Grind all summer and shine all night
I’ve made all of these changes, but I’m still counting paper
I’m so tired of all these undercover haters
