WORDS & LYRICS

The collection of written lyrics, titles and phrases have been steadily building to the point where I feel that it is time to release this collection to the discerning songwriter, artiste or producer. Collaboration comes to mind should there be an interest for me to work with you for your pending album or that elusive song.

I am a PRS and a PPL member and any collaboration will be worked on an equal split in percentages.

Lyrics

Words we use in our lyrics can be personal and something special in the emotions and sentiments that they are conveyed. Here, you will find lyrics where you can to put your own spin on it towards creating that special song of your own. I feel that lyrics derived from raw emotions and experiences whether it is personal or from a third party point of view, adds more depth and meaning which in turn the message delivered through these lyrics in a song, makes it all the more gratifying and satisfying at the same time. It can be that hit song that you are looking for.

tears through the storm

I LIE AWAKE AT NIGHT

TOSSING AND TURNING

SLEEP DON’T COME SO EASILY

YOU GOT MY MIND REELIN’

 

AND WHEN I CLOSE MY EYES

IT’S YOU THAT I’M THINKIN’

CAN’T LET GO THE THINGS YOU SAID

YOU HURT MY FEELINGS

 

** WHY CAN’T WE SEE EYE TO EYE

     WHY CAN’T WE TRY TO ACCEPT

     THAT SOMETIMES WE LIE

     NEVER WANTING TO HURT

     NEVER UNDERSTANDING WHY

 

CHORUS:

WHEN THERE’S TEARS THROUGH THE STORM

LET IT POUR, LET IT RAIN

WHEN THERE’S TEARS THROUGH THE STORM

WILL MY HEART FIND PEACE AGAIN

WHEN THERE’S TEARS THROUGH THE STORM

LET IT POUR, LET IT RAIN

WHEN THERE’S TEARS THROUGH THE STORM

LET MY LOVE FOR YOU REMAIN

 

I CRIED TOO MANY TEARS

‘TILL I CAN’T CRY NO MORE

HOW CAN YOU TELL ME THAT THIS IS LOVE

WHEN IT’S MAKING ME FEEL LOW

 

DON’T WANNA TALK ABOUT IT

DON’T WANNA KNOW THE REASONS WHY

I FEEL MY WORLD CRUMBLIN DOWN

I’VE GOT NO PLACE TO HIDE

 

REPEAT **

CHORUS

 

MY EMOTIONS TAKING OVER,

THE ANGER, THE PAIN,

THEY SEEM TO LAST FOREVER

I NEVER WANTED TO HURT YOU, 

THIS YOU SHOULD KNOW

SO MAKE IT RIGHT, MAKE IT RIGHT, BY LETTING ME GO
