Gratitude

When the world crumbles around you, you have to look a the wreckage and then build a new one out of all the pieces that are still here.

Babe – Emeli Sande

I was lost
In the dead of night
But then came angels
I could not fight no
All of a sudden, I’m fading
I was blinded, by the light
Til you said

Babe
It’s okay, it’s okay now
Let it out, let it love, let it rain down
Hold me now, hold me down, hold me always
Babe, babe, babe, now
Babe, say my name, it’s okay now
Say it loud, shout it out, down the hallway
Love me now, love me now, love me always
Babe, babe, babe

There were sirens
Out to get me
So by now, I swear I’ve heard it all
I just pray
You choose to catch me
But either way
You’re always worth the fall
So I said

Babe it’s okay, it’s okay now
Let it out, let it love, let it rain down
Hold me now, hold me down, hold me always
Babe, babe, babe
Babe, say my name, it’s okay now
Say it loud, shout it out, down the hallway
Love me now, love me now, love me always
Babe, babe, babe, now
Babe, say my name, it’s okay now
Say it loud, shout it out, down the hallway
Love me now, love me now, love me always
Babe, babe

Hey, all the things that they say
Love cause the things they choose to hate
It’s just a love that they’re afraid of
But see, I’m not afraid to take a leap
Not afraid to get too deep
Singing long live the angels
And hey hey, take note of colours in your dreams
Things aren’t as dark as they may seem
Remember fear is in no way truthful
And I say what luck to find you in this life
I’ve been around so many times
And never found someone so beautiful

So babe
It’s okay, it’s okay now
Let it out, let it love, let it rain down
Hold me now, hold me down, hold me always
Babe, babe, babe, now
Babe, say my name, it’s okay now
Say it loud, shout it out, down the hallway
Love me now, love me now, love me always
Babe, babe, babe, now

Now, babe
Babe, say my name, it’s okay now
Say it loud, shout it out, down the hallway
Love me now, love me now, love me always
Babe, babe, babe, now

So babe
It’s okay, it’s okay now
Let it out, let it love, let it rain down
Hold me now, hold me down, hold me always
Babe, babe, babe

Good Life – Zhu

Life is all about you and not at all about you
Now, that’s two opposing thoughts and yet both of them are true
How can you experience everything you choose to do
While observing the experience you’re having from a higher view
See, it’s the question, not the answer, that’s the higher view
Otherwise, you couldn’t differentiate between the two
Awareness? But of who?
You think you hurt me, but I promise I was letting you
They say we’re all one, but where have we been headed to
I’d rather die free than have to live inside a petting zoo
I am the journey that I’m getting to

I could be it all, I’ll make a good life
Let me lose my mind, it’s the only way to love
Only way to, only way to love
I could be it all, I’ll make a good life
Let me lose my mind, it’s the only way to love
Only way to, only way to love

Gratitude is my destination
My destiny is perfectly aligned with this location
I am the map, so I travel back in time
I have everything I want cause my imagination is mine
But mind is not enough for me cause I am not my mind
I could see it all, but never get to see I’m truly blind
I could be it all, but all identities intertwine
The moon is only bright cause it reflects the sun’s shine

I could be it all, I’ll make a good life
Let me lose my mind, it’s the only way to love
Only way to, only way to love

It’s not the human race, it’s just the human race
There’s nothing left to chase, we do not run this place
But both medicine and poison’s an acquired taste
So I started taking selfies of somebody else’s face

Tell me something
What is more genius than a child’s laughter
Are we not simply the children of this world?

Praying – Kesha

“Am I dead? Or is this one of those dreams? Those horrible dreams that seem like they last forever? If I am alive, why? Why? If there is a God or whatever, something, somewhere, why have I been abandoned by everyone and everything I’ve ever known? I’ve ever loved? Stranded. What is the lesson? What is the point? God, give me a sign, or I have to give up. I can’t do this anymore. Please just let me die. Being alive hurts too much.”

Well, you almost had me fooled

Told me that I was nothing without you

Oh, and after everything you’ve done

I can thank you for how strong I have become

‘Cause you brought the flames and you put me through hell

I had to learn how to fight for myself

And we both know all the truth I could tell

I’ll just say this is I wish you farewell

I hope you’re somewhere praying, praying

I hope your soul is changing, changing

I hope you find your peace

Falling on your knees, praying

I’m proud of who I am

No more monsters, I can breathe again

And you said that I was done

Well, you were wrong and now the best is yet to come

‘Cause I can make it on my own

And I don’t need you, I found a strength I’ve never known

I’ve been thrown out, I’ve been burned (I’ll bring thunder, I’ll bring rain)

When I’m finished, they won’t even know your name

You brought the flames and you put me through hell

I had to learn how to fight for myself

And we both know all the truth I could tell

I’ll just say this is I wish you farewell

I hope you’re somewhere praying, praying

I hope your soul is changing, changing

I hope you find your peace

Falling on your knees, praying

Oh, sometimes, I pray for you at night

Oh, someday, maybe you’ll see the light

Oh, some say, in life you gonna get what you give

But some things, only God can forgive

I hope you’re somewhere praying, praying

I hope your soul is changing, changing

I hope you find your peace

Falling on your knees, praying

 

T.O.N.Y. – Solange

T.O.N.Y don’t call no more
No not at all no more
Maybe there’s something wrong with his phone
Or maybe it’s morning and the thrill is gone
I’m not sure if I’m still respected
And I’m not in a rush to feel rejected
Not by T.O.N.Y

T.O.N.Y don’t care no more
He doesn’t want me there no more
I just wanna know what I did wrong
Damn this’ll make a real good song
And I don’t have these nights to often
I wish I could take my mind off it
But I really like T.O.N.Y

And he wasn’t just some regular guy
T.O.N.Y’s actually The Other Night oh whY

I could’ve been in love by now
If it wasn’t for T.O.N.Y
Ooh I could’ve been in love by now
If it wasn’t for T.O.N.y ah

Me and T.O.N.Y don’t speak no more
It’s almost been a weak oh no
My the time it goes so fast
But I still refuse to call his ass
I remember the way that I reacted
And today’s even more attractive
But I really miss T.O.N.Y

But then T.O.N.Y called me one day
He said that he just called to say hey
And it wasn’t until he called me back
That I realized I needed more than that
I’m a lot wiser and a little older
Hey baby it was nice to know ya
Goodbye T.O.N.Y

Still he wasn’t just some regular guy
T.O.N.Y’s actually The Other Night oh whY

I could’ve been in love by now
If it wasn’t for T.O.N.Y (Ooh)
I could’ve been in love by now
If it wasn’t for T.O.N.Y

I don’t go with yesterday no more (Ooh)
Now I’m feeling free (I’m feeling free)
Today tomorrow told me (What it say?)
That’s where I should be (That’s where I should be)

So I’m moving on (I’m moving)
Yes I’m moving on (I’m going, oh, can’t wait forever)
So I’m moving on (I’m going)
Yes I’m moving on (I’m leaving, I miss you baby)

Still he wasn’t just some regular guy
T.O.N.Y’s actually the Other Night Yeah
Yeah if it wasn’t for T.O.N.Y
Ooh could’ve been in love by now
If it wasn’t for T.O.N.Y

Gateway Drug – Bebe Rexha

You hit me up at 3 A.M. on a Friday night
Say you ain’t feelin’ right
You need to see my face right now
You ain’t over it, just wanna talk a bit

If you wanna talk, let’s talk about the way you left me
Left me with a text so cold (yeah)
Even though I’d die to see you
I don’t trust myself to meet you
‘Cause we both know

That your kiss is a gateway drug
Once you get one, it’s never enough
Your kiss is a gateway drug
Once you get one, it’s never enough

Fuckin’ leads to
Someone always seems to get hurt (yeah)

If you really loved me, why’d you leave me like that
Why’d you go around and talk shit like that
Behind my back, love don’t do shit like that, ooh

Left me with a text so cold (mm)

Kids – Wynter Gordon

I don’t know, who you are,
Anymore, you’re a mystery now.
An unfamiliar face.
You gave up, on us all,
You lost hope, you’re just taking up space,

You and your friends have turned to leeches,
Begging for money and giving sad speeches,
You used to be my hero.

When we were just kids, you used to want,
To grow up and be, to be somebody.
But then it got lost, your innocence,
And you don’t remember where it went.

When we were just kids, you loved yourself,
You loved yourself.
When we were just kids, you loved yourself.

We all got hurt, we all cried,
You were not alone, we all had to survive.
I learned to forgive, let go of the pain,
But you’re holding on, holding onto the past.

You give guilt trips like no other,
Left your kids without a mother,
You know, you used to be my hero.

When we were just kids, you loved yourself,
You loved yourself.
When we were just kids, you loved yourself.
