Week # 22 – Listen To The Rain

Spending the week away from the house in the trees, near the water, where silence takes you over and spreads like wildfire in your heart. Pine Cliffs Resort lay home to this seven day song inspiration, where we met new friends, shared in new experiences and were able to keep in touch with our own inner calm. In less than a week, I will embark on a journey across this beautiful country with my family. A voyage that will bring with it many new experiences, stories to add to the book, and no doubt, inspirations that I will share with you here as I continue my Seven Day Songs Quest.

Thank you for listening.

LYRICS – STAND UP

You can walk around the broken ground pretending
You can sit there in the shadows all alone
hope and dream and wish for happy endings
Pray that things will fix themselves on their very own

You can read about the world from in your basement
You can watch it all go by on your TV screen
Close your eyes and picture others face it
Try to hide the taste of every little thing you’ve seen.

It just aint enough, No no
You gotta remember
It just aint enough, Oh
It just aint enough, No no
You gotta remember

Stand up and let em hear you call out
Stand up and let em take it all in
Stand up and let em have a good look
As you take your right foot to the ground and stomp again
Stand up and let em hear you call out
Stand up and let em take it all in
And in all the years that pass us by
It is never too late to be what you might have been.

You can think about the ones you take for granted
You can worry bout the things you never done
Waste all your tomorrows missing chances
Caught up in the planning, never in the fun

YOu can wait a little longer just to find out
You can turn away and never live your heart

Focus on the fire, as you walk along that wire
Thinking of the things you never start

Stand up and let em hear you call out
Stand up and let em take it all in
Stand up and let em have a good look
As you take your right foot to the ground and stomp again
Stand up and let em hear you call out
Stand up and let em take it all in
Stand up and go and take a little risk
Raise up your fist and fight for everything


Week # 20 – It’s Gonna Take

Every relationship on this planet has an intricate wiring, a roller coaster ride that is thrilling, exciting, scary, hard to handle…but with the ups and downs the laughs and cries, we find ourselves…the honesty, the truth…the moments we get to share that others don’t ever get to see.

If you like, comment…if you love…share with yours or someone you know.

All the best and thanks for listening


Week #19 – Life

Each week I find myself staying up through the night finalizing these songs, and every new one takes me somewhere else in my brain and in my heart.

This song is inspired by the everyday things we learn along the journey of our lives from baby to grandparent.

I hope you guys enjoy…and please subscribe, leave a comment, and like.

Cheers North
LYRICS

you breathe you cry your cold your scared
you look, you learn you touch you stare
you smile, you laugh you lay
and there you struggle with the open air

you turn, you crawl;you fight to stand
you step you fall;you change your plan
you try again you try again you try again
and when you can

you run, you jump, you play the game
you learn, you grow, you change again

Life…has a crazy way, of taking days
and burning them
Life…has a crazy way…of taking days
and turning them
and life is all you’ll ever know
so breathe it in and take it slow inside

you meet you kiss; you touch, you hug
you take a risk ;you fall in love
you talk you play;you face the face
you take a vow;you make your way

you push you pull you take a leap
you break your back you fight to keep

you think, you know;you speak your mind
you chase the clock ;you fall behind
you wait for what, you wait for what
you stand there and you count the lines

on your skin, the truth sets in
you close your eyes, you fight again
