Track Name: Changes
Look around now it’s the last days, he’s coming back soon that’s what the sign say
I’m on my way to my 8 to 2, 2 to 8, thinkin bout how I can ameliorate
I just might break down and cry/I’m so aggravated/the world don’t help it
Want to escape it

Chorus
I don’t want to have a drink, it won’t solve anything
I don’t want to take my life, I just want to make it right
I need to make, Changes

I hope your day was really spiffy/what’s the deal mine was so confusing
Sin wants me to fall in dilapidated/God wants to use me to elevate it
Simple decisions are made so complicated/the world don’t help it/ want to escape it

(Chorus)

God help me, God help me, God help me

Come to my senses, I’m not worthless, I’m not worthless
You make it worth it/to be a better person/ I’m sorry I just need Jesus help, Jesus help to make some changes
Track Name: Flowers and Grass
We’re flowers, flowers and grass/our time has come but it will pass
We’re set to bloom but it won’t last
Forever and always/only love is here to stay
So let me be kind and find my way/to you, to you, to you love

Yeah, yeah, yeah
I’m just a flower, you’re just a flower, we’re just flowers, flowers and grass

So flowers, flowers and grass/let them go troubles of the past
It’s time to forgive, its time to laugh
Forever and always/only love is here to stay
So let me be kind and find my way/to you, to you, to you love

Yeah, yeah, yeah
I’m just a flower, you’re just a flower, we’re just flowers, flowers and grass

Flowers, flowers and grass/you’re so beautiful I hope you know it
Your soul is beautiful/go ahead and show it
Forever and always/only love is here to stay
So let me be kind and find my way/to you, to you, to you love

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Alright, Alright, Alright now

Forever and always only love is here to stay/so let me be kind and find my way
Forever and always only love is here to stay/so let me be kind and find my way
To you, to you love
Track Name: Up From Here
Chorus:
There’s no where to go but up from here

up from here

up from here

there’s no where to go but up from here

up from here

up from here

We got to start where we are

one day at a time we’re get far

walk it out step by step

give it all nothing left

i feel it strong in my soul can see it now in my mind

so much more than we know beyond our dreams

beyond our scope just a matter of that time

before we rise above the sky

up up from here

up through the atmosphere

up up from here

up no doubt no fear

no doubt no fear

There’s no where to go but up from here

up from here

up from here

there’s no where to go but up from here
(Chorus)

beyond the stars money cars gold chain venus mars

bling blang stacks on stacks way past that

hollywood walk of fame galaxy shark tank

far from there can’t get there on no crystal stair

aint what it is here down low

no universe no time zone

up up from here

up through the atmosphere

up up from here

up no doubt no fear

no doubt no fear

(Chorus out)
Track Name: My Fault
Verse 1
I don’t like it when we fight/ I don’t like it when we fight
And we’re at opposite ends
I just wanna make it right/so, let’s not pretend
That’s theres no problem/but I know we can resolve
Cuz I ain’t got a problem admitting its my fault

Chorus
My Fault, My fault/ My Fault, My fault

Verse 2
So I apologize for what I did, for what I said and how I said it hmmmm
So do you think that you can find/find it in your heart to forgive me

And if it’s not problem, I would like us to move on
And if its not a problem, would you play our favorite song
Cuz if you ain’t got a problem/I don’t got one at all

Chorus
It’s my fault, My fault
And if it’s not problem, I would like us to move on
And if its not a problem, would you play our favorite song
Cuz if you ain’t got a problem/I don’t got one at all

It’s my fault, My fault-cuz I don’t like it when we fight
Track Name: Unexpectedly
I was surprised the first time you called me on the telephone
You testified you hadn’t seen me at all
We’ll have some tea we decided, I put on my favorite outfit
Brown boots, jeans and my favorite jacket/ I was feeling cute Unexpectedly

Chorus
you didn’t call me at all, yeah you didn’t call me why didn’t you call me (repeat)

About a week and a half went by, since I heard from you so I decided
To give you the benefit, maybe you got sick, finally I got the hint
You just weren’t interested, I must admit it hurt a little bit, it hurt a little bit
That you

(Chorus)

so momma said you’re beautiful, special, unique a young lady
if he can’t see then darling it must not be meant
don’t worry love just yourself be happy, don’t worry just love yourself and be happy
and on your knees to God pray, he’ll send ya someone special some day
Unexpectedly
Track Name: Never Alone
There’s a purpose for your life/don’t you even think about giving up
I’ve been here the whole time all you gotta do is look up

Ya never alone/Never alone/I want you to know
Never/ Ever/ Alone/ I want you to know/ So just know

Verse 1
So your world came crumbling down/you looked around no one could
All your hopes and your dreams are gone/you blame yourself for all the wrong
Things that happened in your life

B
Don’t you even think about giving up
I’ve been here the whole time all you gotta do is look up

Chorus
Ya never alone/Never alone/I want you to know
Never/ Ever/ Alone/ I want you to know/ So just know

Enjoy the journey as it comes/now live it up/you only got one
Its not just about yourself/what you overcome will help someone else

I thought about you today, you’re on your way to greatness you are
That’s right, so last night for you I prayed
They say good things come to those who wait/who wait
So I, I demonstrate my patience

Cuz you’re strong and beautiful and your love is wonderful to me, to me (your love so wonderful)

(Chorus)
Do do do do do, Do do do do do, You're Love is so wonderful


I thought about you today, wondering the things you say about me
I know you’re nice, so last night for you, I prayed, I prayed
Maybe we were both angels, souls came on earth to meet again, again
So I, I wait for the day, we embrace


I’m not rushing but I think I need you, I need you I do
Cuz you’re strong and beautiful and your love is wonderful to me, to me (your love so wonderful)

(Chorus)
