Be brave. Even if you’re not, pretend to be. No one can tell the difference. Don’t allow the phone to interrupt important moments. It’s there for your convenience, not the callers. Don’t be afraid to go out on a limb. That’s where the fruit is. Don’t burn bridges. You’ll be surprised how many times you have to cross the same river. Don’t forget, a person’s greatest emotional need is to feel appreciated. Don’t major in minor things. Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Helen Keller, Leonardo Da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein. Don’t spread yourself too thin. Learn to say no politely and quickly. Don’t use time or words carelessly. Neither can be retrieved. Don’t waste time grieving over past mistakes Learn from them and move on. Every person needs to have their moment in the sun, when they raise their arms in victory, knowing that on this day, at his hour, they were at their very best. Get your priorities straight. No one ever said on his death bed, ‘Gee, if I’d only spent more time at the office’. Give people a second chance, but not a third. Judge your success by the degree that you’re enjoying peace, health and love. Learn to listen. Opportunity sometimes knocks very softly. Leave everything a little better than you found it. Live your life as an exclamation, not an explanation. Loosen up. Relax. Except for rare life and death matters, nothing is as important as it first seems. Never cut what can be untied. Never overestimate your power to change others. Never underestimate your power to change yourself. Remember that overnight success usually takes about fifteen years. Remember that winners do what losers don’t want to do. Seek opportunity, not security. A boat in harbor is safe, but in time its bottom will rot out. Spend less time worrying who’s right, more time deciding what’s right. Stop blaming others. Take responsibility for every area of your life. Success is getting what you want. Happiness is liking what you get. The importance of winning is not what we get from it, but what we become because of it. When facing a difficult task, act as though it’s impossible to fail.

I’ve been ignoring this big lump in my throat
I shouldn’t be crying, tears were for the weaker days
I’m stronger, now what, so I say
But something’s missing

Whatever it is, it feels like
It’s laughing at me through the glass of a two-sided mirror
Whatever it is, it’s just laughing at me
And I just wanna scream

What now? I just can’t figure it out
What now? I guess I’ll just wait it out
What now? Whoa, what now?

I found the one, he changed my life
But was it me that changed
And he just happened to come at the right time
I’m supposed to be in love
But I’m numb again

Whatever it is, it feels like
It’s laughing at me through the glass of a two-sided mirror
Whatever it is, it’s just sitting there laughing at me
And I just wanna scream

What now? I just can’t figure it out
What now? I guess I’ll just wait it out
What now? Please tell me
What now?

There’s no one to call cause I’m just playing games with them all
The more I swear I’m happy, the more that I’m feeling alone
Cause I spent every hour just going through the motions
I can’t even get the emotions to come out
Dry as a bone, but I just wanna shout

What now? I just can’t figure it out
What now? I guess I’ll just wait it out (wait it out)
What now? Somebody tell me
What now?

I don’t know where to go
I don’t know what to feel
I don’t know how to cry
I don’t know ow ow why
I don’t know where to go
I don’t know what to feel
I don’t know how to cry
I don’t know ow ow why
I don’t know where to go
I don’t know what to feel
I don’t know how to cry
I don’t know ow ow why

So what now?

"Burn The Pages"

You’re dark grey like a storm cloud
Swelling up with rain that is desperate to be let out
And I know it’s a heavy load carrying those tears around
Carrying those fears around
Worry makes the world go round
You’re twisted up like a slipknot
Tied by a juice head, who just took his T-shirt
And I know there’s a hungry dog
Tugging at your frayed ends
But he’s just playing with you, he just wants to be your friend
So don’t worry don’t worry
I’m here by your side
By your side, by your side
We’re letting go tonight

Yesterday is gone and you will be OK
Place your past into a book
Burning pages let them cook
Yesterday is dead and gone and so today
Place your past into a book
Burning pages let them cook

Eyes stinging from the black smoke
New hope, loose rope
Risen from the undertow
All is well we welcome the cry of the dark night sky
Swallow me peacefully, follow my heart back inside
So don’t worry don’t worry
I’m here by your side
By your side, by your side
We’re letting go tonight

Yesterday is gone and you will be OK
Place your past into a book
Burn the pages let them cook
Yesterday is dead and gone and so today
Place your place into a book
Burn the pages let them cook

Don’t worry don’t worry
I’m here by your side
By your side, by your side
We’re letting go tonight

Yesterday is gone and you will be OK
Place your past into a book
Burn the pages let them cook
Yesterday is dead and gone and so today
Place your past into a book
Burn the pages let them cook

"Eye Of The Needle"

Take me down
I’m feeling now
And if I move on
I admit you’re gone
And I ain’t ready
But I’ll hold steady
Yeah I’ll hold you
In my arms, in my arms
In my arms

And you’re locked inside my heart
And your melody’s an art
And I won’t let the terror in I’m stealing time
Through the eye of the needle

Step and repeat
Tears fall to the beat
Smile through the pain
Feel the acid rain
And I ain’t ready
But I’ll hold steady
Yeah I’ll hold you
In my arms, in my arms
In my arms

And you’re locked inside my heart
And your melody’s an art
And I won’t let the terror in I’m stealing time
Through the eye of the needle

My bag’s heavy
Been filled by me
They weigh me down
Carry them round
It’s all mine, all mine
Oh I am blinded
By the eye of the needle

And you’re locked inside my heart
And your melody’s an art
And I won’t let the terror in I’m stealing time
Through the eye of the needle
Eye of the needle
And you’re locked inside my heart
And your melody’s an art
And I won’t let the terror in I’m stealing time
Through the eye of the needle

Make It To Me- Sam Smith
My mind runs away to you
With the thought I hope you’ll see
Can’t see where it’s wandered to
But I know where it wants to be

I’m waiting patiently though time is moving slow
I have one vacancy and I wanted you to know that

You’re the one designed for me
A distant stranger that I will complete
I know you’re out there we’re meant to be
So keep your head up and make it to me
And make it to me

So sick of this lonely air
It seems such a waste of breath
So much that I need to say
So much to get off my chest

I’m waiting patiently though time is moving slow
I have one vacancy and I wanted you to know that

You’re the one designed for me
A distant stranger that I will complete
I know you’re out there we’re meant to be
So keep your head up and make it to me
Make it to me
Make it to me
Make it to me

Rock With You - Michael Jackson

Girl, close your eyes
Let that rhythm get into you
Don’t try to fight it
There ain’t nothin’ that you can do

Relax your mind
Lay back and groove with mine
You got to feel that heat
And we can ride the boogie
Share that beat of love

I wanna rock with you all night
Dance you into day, sunlight
I wanna rock with you all night
We’re gonna rock the night away

Out on the floor
There ain’t nobody there but us
Girl, when you dance
There’s a magic that must be love

Just take it slow
'Cause we got so far to go
When you feel that heat
And we gonna ride the boogie
Share that beat of love

I wanna rock with you all night
Dance you into day, sunlight
I wanna rock with you all night
We gon’ rock the night away

And when the groove
Is dead and gone, yeah
You know that love survives
So we can rock forever on

I wanna rock with you
I wanna groove with you
I wanna rock with you
I wanna groove with you

I wanna rock all night with you
Girl, sunlight, rock with you
Rock with you, all night, yeah
Dance the night away

I wanna rock with you, yeah, all night
Rock you into day, sunlight
I wanna rock with you all night
Rock the night away

Feel the heat, feel the beat, all night
Rock you into day sunlight
I wanna rock all night
Rock the night away

Lay Me Down- Sam Smith
Yes, I do, I believe
That one day I will be where I was
Right there, right next to you
And it’s hard, the days just seem so dark
The moon, the stars are nothing without you

Your touch, your skin,
Where do I begin?
No words can explain, the way I’m missing you
Deny this emptiness, this hole that I’m inside
These tears, they tell their own story

You told me not to cry when you were gone
But the feeling’s overwhelming, they’re much too strong

Can I lay by your side, next to you, you
And make sure you’re alright?
I’ll take care of you,
And I don’t want to be here if I can’t be with you tonight

I’m reaching out to you
Can you hear my call? (Who’s to say you won’t hear me?)
This hurt that I’ve been through
I’m missing you, missing you like crazy

You told me not to cry when you were gone
But the feeling’s overwhelming, they’re much too strong

Can I lay by your side, next to you, you
And make sure you’re alright?
I’ll take care of you
And I don’t wanna be here if I can’t be with you tonight

Lay me down tonight, lay me by your side
Lay me down tonight, lay me by your side

Can I lay by your side, next to you, you
And make sure you’re alright?
I’ll take care of you
And I don’t wanna be here if I can’t be with you tonight

Stay With Me- Sam Smith 

Guess it’s true, I’m not good at a one-night stand
But I still need love ‘cause I’m just a man
These nights never seem to go to plan
I don’t want you to leave, will you hold my hand?

Oh, won’t you stay with me?
'Cause you're all I need
This ain’t love it’s clear to see
But darling, stay with me

Why am I so emotional?
No it’s not a good look, gain some self control
And deep down I know this never works
But you can lay with me so it doesn’t hurt

Oh, won’t you stay with me?
'Cause you're all I need
This ain’t love it’s clear to see
But darling, stay with me

Oh, won’t you stay with me?
'Cause you're all I need
This ain’t love it’s clear to see
But darling, stay with me

Oh, won’t you stay with me?
'Cause you're all I need
This ain’t love it’s clear to see
But darling, stay with me

#better @jessicaReedy

I used to be so broken,lost,empty.
A heart with no beat.
A singer with no song to sing .
So I know the feeling
The silence is deafening
But in your pain lies a blessing
A sweeter song of victory
So keep walking ,walking,walking
Though it seems so far.
No matter who you are
See, there is one thing that I know
Life it can leave ,You so bitter bitter,bitter, bitter
But you must believe
That it gets better,better,better, better

Is alright, dry your eyes,send a prayer
To the skies . I know its hard to fight
But you must believe
That it gets better.

Listen to me , I know you`re scared
Your heart`s bleeding.
But what are you gonna do now?
I think is time you break free!

And walking ,walking,walking
Though it seems so far.
No it doesn’t really matter who you are
See, there is one thing that I know ohhhhh!
Life it can leave ,You so bitter bitter,bitter, bitter
But you must believe
That it gets better,better,better, better
Is alright, dry your eyes,send a prayer
To the skies . I know its hard to fight
But you must believe
That it gets better , better

Almost out of here
See ,I was almost took,
I wanted to die
From how i was doing wrong
I cried out every night
Looking for a helping hand
That`s when it happened
Jesus took me in

He held me close
Gave me love
Refilled my heart
Helped me grow better
Better
because his love made me whole
He`s available anytime .
Try Him out
He will change your life
Be Cause I know Yeah

Life it can leave ,You so bitter bitter,bitter, bitter
But you must believe
That it gets better,better,better, better
Life it can leave ,You so bitter bitter,bitter, bitter
But you must believe
That it gets better,better,better, better

"Flawed Beautiful Creatures"

Sometimes we’re insecure, we’re fragile

Sometimes we laugh at each other to make ourselves feel better

Sometimes we lie, sometimes we say things

That we really don’t mean

But in the moment, seem like the thing to do

[Chorus:]

We’re all flawless beautiful people

We’re all flawless beautiful creatures

We’re all flawless beautiful people

We’re all flawless beautiful creatures

Is it a crime if a man kills to protect his own from harm’s way

Who will be the judge anyway

What would you have done if the gun was in his hands

Feet were in his shoes

Guess you’ll never know what you won’t do

Cause in the moment might seem like the thing to do

[Chorus:]

We’re all flawless beautiful people

We’re all flawless beautiful creatures

We’re all flawless beautiful people

We’re all flawless beautiful creatures

Sometimes we gotta loose it to find it

We gotta loose

Sometimes we win, we live a while then gotta die

Why? Why?

[Chorus:]

We’re all flawless beautiful people

We’re all flawless beautiful creatures

We’re all flawless beautiful people

We’re all flawless beautiful creatures.
