No Apology

Original and similar lyrics
An ordinary girl looked me in the eye Look and you will see them laughing as I cry Part of me is hope Part of me is fear I will not surrender I am standing here I crave normality Why won’t it happen? it’s just not meant to be So take me as I am Take every part of me For all that I’ve become For all that I could be Don’t you know me by now? Do you like what you see? I’m walking through this world with no apology No ordinary life A different kind of girl You know a grain of sand Can turn in to a pearl I dance beneath the moon Barefoot in the snow No footprints to be seen Other than my own I crave normality Why won’t it happen? it’s just not meant to be So take me as I am Take every part of me For all that I’ve become For all that I could be Don’t you know me by now? Do you like what you see? I’m walking through this world with no apology Here’s to the waters of the bridges we’ve burned For all we’ve lost and all that we’ve learned For all the music and the madness we’ve made This is why Here’s to the courage when we need to be brave for walking out when its so easy to stay for never feeling you have to explain this is why I crave normality Why won’t it happen? it’s just not meant to be So take me as I am Take every part of me For all that I’ve become For all that I could be Don’t you know me by now? Do you like what you see? I’m walking through this world with no apology For all that I could be Don’t you know me by now? Do you like what you see? I’m walking through this world with no apology

Walking On Water

AVANT "The Letter"
I thought that I figured out a woman, but what I learned it don't amount to nothing Did everything I knew by the book, but it just didn't work I figured happily ever after wasn't, wasn't in the plans for me Had just about given up on love until you came around and showed me exactly what it was I finally found someone, a girl I can love forever never thought it would happen for me Feels like I'm walking on water walking on water When I'm with you impossible it's easy to do Never thought it would happen for me With you I'm walking on water walking on water Nothing seemed to matter much without ya But life has changed and now it's all about ya, and even if I try to go back no it just wouldn't work ooh Waking up beside you when I'm dreaming it feels so unreal to me Just like the heaven open up it took a while but I got my angel from above I finally found someone, a girl I can love forever never thought it would happen for me Feels like I'm walking on water walking on water When I'm with you impossible it's easy to do Never thought it would happen for me With you I'm walking on water Walking on water Never knew that true love could be what I always heard of The closet thing to perfection you gave me a reason to believe that I can do anything cause I finally found someone yes, a girl I can love forever never thought it would happen to me Feels like I'm (walking on water) walking on water (on water) When I'm with you (when I'm with you impossible) it's easy to do (to do) ooh hoo No I believe cause I'm walking on water You got me walking (you got me walking) oooooh

Rome Wasn't Built In A Day

MORCHEEBA "Fragments Of Freedom"
You and me we're meant to be Walking free in harmony One fine day we'll fly away Don't you know that Rome wasn't built in a day In this day and age it's so easy to stress 'Cause people are strange and you can never second guess In order to love child we got to be strong I'm caught in the crossfire why can't we get along 'Cause you and me we're meant to be Walking free in harmony One fine day we'll fly away Don't you know that Rome wasn't built in a day I'm having a daydream, we're getting somewhere I'm kissing your lips and running fingers through your hair I'm as nervous as you 'bout making it right Though we know we were wrong, we can't give up the fight Oh no 'Cause you and me we're meant to be Walking free in harmony One fine day we'll run away Don't you know that Rome wasn't built in a day You and me we're meant to be Walking free in harmony One fine day we'll fly away Don't you know that Rome wasn't built in a day You and me (you and me) we're meant to be (meant to be) Walking free (walking free) in harmony (in harmony) One fine day (one fine day) we' ll ran away (we gonna ran away, we gonna ran away) Don't you know that Rome wasn't built in a day You and me (you and me) we're meant to be (meant to be) Walking free (walking free) in harmony (in harmony) One fine day (one fine day) we' ll fly away (we gonna ran away, we gonna ran away) Don't you know that Rome wasn' t built in a day

Above My Floor

AER "Aer"
[Chorus - Dave:] I never wanna know ya I think I see him walking Collide with the ghost above my floor High, headed up the corner I think I see him walking Say hi to the ghost I won’t become [Verse 1 - Carter:] He and I could fight all night But he is me, so get this right I’m torn inside but act so bright And who to be i can’t decide So I’ll roll the rest up, rid the pressure Diesel from forty, on top the dresser Inhale the smoke, I’ll clean the mess up Opaque hope, extreme measures Indulge in all types of pleasures Don’t talk to him I can explain it much better Imma medicate myself if I want to Not a level head and will say anything bout you Looking in the mirror finding someone to shout to The answer’s in the haze so I’ll figure it out soon I’m keeping up cuz I’m fast learner Tryna disregard my evil as the worlds turnin The ego in each of us wants to eat through the furnace And then heat up your house and just laugh it off as it’s burning [Chorus - Dave] [Verse 2 - Carter:] I’ve learned to pick quality over quantity When does confident become cocky? What if i told you that’s not me Hiding behind expensive liquor and kawasakis The diamond’s getting bigger I’m in the rough of the rockies Power trippin, tricked into giving the guy who brought me What he deserves, been on my nerves Despite it all i can find the courage I’m high in attic, so close to the angels But he’s in the basement playing games with the devil I’m tryna get out and see the world from all angles He only wants to stay in and polish up all his medals Spun out in the city makes it hard to say I’m stable Ain’t giving up for nothing no homie I won’t settle Crumbs crushed up on the old wooden table High above the problems is me having my head up

Pick It Up

ANDY MINEO "Formerly Known"
Yo, even if it means carrying an anvil up a steep hill During an avalanche, I wanna walk inside His will These habitats and conditions is giving me the chills This is not a thrill, and it doesn't feel like a walk in the park It kinda seems like I'm walking in the dark, lantern in my heart These thorns and these thistles, are picking me apart And cameras keep flashing, they depicting it as art Fool, I'm on my knees right, stains on my jeans Filthy from head to toe, I finally get to see light (C-Lite) Still in the batter's box after three strikes Walking like Rev Run, steppin' in my three stripes Walking this way and that way, I found a narrow path It's like a tightrope He's gonna catch me, if I fall Guess we all need a challenge, To battle through this race in the Cross that we balance In that execution, jury on your chest Pick it up, and if you would look to it Your soul will find some rest, pick it up Ooh Pick It Up, Pick it up Question, how would your face look if Jesus were to scroll through a page of your Facebook Better one, would He be a bit confused If He seen His name written in your religious views Feeling conviction, they tick like "Didn't you know He's love?" Yeah you right but when He come back here to judge Lamb to the Lion, He's ruling the nations Packing a rod of iron, making a fool of Satan Tattoo on His thigh, King of kings, Lord of lords That's the name that's inscribed White horses he'll ride, got flames in His eyes I'm not playin' His fury is crushing enemies like grapes into wine Ain't nobody know the day or the time So I pray that you make up your mind, deny yourself and take up the pine Live the Cross, it ain't a chain or design, 'cause Sin Is Wack Don't wear one on your chest if you don't bear one on your back, fam. In that execution, jury on your chest Pick it up, and if you would look to it Your soul will find some rest, pick it up Ooh Pick It Up, Pick it up He want us sold out, searching our hearts Even believers got sin that they keep in the dark You know that one thing, God ain't pleased with He told you give it up, you wanna keep it You got a million excuses, a billion reasons But at the end of the day you still ain't at peace yet Well let me let you in on a secret We can't go deeper in our relationship till we leave it Decease it, put it to sleep like a Posturepedic 'Cause sin is a fatal disease and only Jesus can treat it And light of the fact that He freed us, By His blood, cleaned us, washed and redeemed us Uh, that's reason to make us rotate from our old ways Desire to please and obey, tell the Lord okay When the road may seem kinda lonely, my life Your way Yeah

Deaver's Crossing

JAMES MCMURTRY "Complicated Game"
He walked the road with his back all bent Ever since the accident Leaning on his walking cane He kept walking just the same [Chorus:] Deaver's gone from the crossing No one now keeps the ford From the banks of Jeremiah's run Off into the setting sun He was there through the darkest nights The gypsy moth and the chestnut blight The market crash and the teapot dome He was there when the boys came home [Chorus] He was there when Uncle Sam Took away the neighbors' land To make that Shenandoah Park The Woods got thick and the woods got dark Start walking back towards town Retrace your steps as you go Keep walking, watch the ground It's there somewhere I know Deaver's gone Mrs. Deaver, too Finer folk you never knew With smiles for all you passers by And in the churchyard now they lie So, when you fish that March brown hatch Won't you share your morning's catch With those whose ground you walked across May their memory be not lost [Chorus]
