Take Me Away

Standard

Swing, swing
Take me away
Push back and forth
Higher, higher!
Swing, swing
Lift me from this seat
Bring me to places I’ve never seen
Further and further away
Up, up, up!

{chorus}
Take me away, through the air
Feel the cool wind in my hair
As we soar through the night, over the land
So high people look like ants
And my worries fade away

Swing, swing
The possibilities
You bring
To me with your chains
Creaking under my weight
You take me to a place
Where nothing else exists
But this tranquility
Up, up, up!

{chorus}
Take me away, through the air
Feel the cool wind in my hair
As we soar through the night, over the land
So high people look like ants
And my worries fade away

And my worries fade behind me
Like faerie dust in the sand
I clutch at the clouds with my hand
Oh, you take me to places better than I can imagine

Up, up, up!

{chorus}
Take me away, through the air
Feel the cool wind in my hair
As we soar through the night, over the land
So high people look like ants
And my worries fade away

Not Ready To Give Up (2008 Re-Write)

Standard

Original written 6/30/08:
You flood my mind
With your cruel design
You threw my life
Way off line
You stole my soul
And went away to your paradise
I’m ganna find away out of this hole

I’m not ready to give up
Not ready to give in
I’ve got nothing to lose
And everything to win
Nothing’s going to stand in my way
I came through so much
I’m not going to give up.

The rain falls in the middle of winter
While I’m at the bus stop
I can see my breath
In the January air
And can feel the harsh wind in my hair
It doesn’t feel like I’m going to win
But that doesn’t mean I’m going to give in
I’m not ready to give up
Not ready to give in
I’ve got nothing to lose
And everything to win
Nothing’s going to stand in my way
I came through so much
I’m not going to give up.

No, I’m not going to back down
No, you can’t get me to turn around
I will never give in the the Devil’s wish
I’m not going to miss
My chance to live

I’m not ready to give up
Not ready to give in
I’ve got nothing to lose
And everything to win
Nothing’s going to stand in my way
I came through so much
I’m not going to give up. (x2)

I’m not ready to give up.

Re-Write:
You flood my mind

You threw my life

And went away to your
Paradise.

I’m not ready to give up
Not ready to give in
I’ve got nothing to lose
And everything to win
Nothing’s going to stand in my way
I’m not going to give up.

So you’ve got me in your cage
What is it for?
There’s got to be a reason
You’re so adored
Just because you’ve got it made
Doesn’t mean I wont get in your way

I’m not ready to give up
Not ready to give in
I’ve got nothing to lose
And everything to win
Nothing’s going to stand in my way
I’m not going to give up.

No, I’m not going to back down
No, you can’t get me to turn around
I will never give in
I’m not going to miss
My chance to live.

I’m not ready to give up
Not ready to give in
I’ve got nothing to lose
And everything to win
Nothing’s going to stand in my way
I’m not going to give up.(x2)

I’m not ready to give up

Part of Your World

Standard

This is my version of Disney’s The Little Mermaid’s famous song “Part Of Your World” (one of my favorite songs of all time). I thought it would be fun to write it in the point of view of a human who wanted to be a mermaid. I hope no one takes offense, it’s just meant to be fun. Enjoy 😀

Look at the sea

Isn’t it neat?

Water slapping against my feet

I wish it could be-

Could be apart of me.

Look at these waves

Treasures untold

How many wonders can one ocean hold?

Looking around here I’m sure-

Sure it’s got everything.

Its got translucent fish aplenty

Rainbows of reefs gallor

Sunken ships? It’s got many!

You don’t care?

Well I do,

I want to explore!

~

I wanna be where the Mer are

I wanna see, wanna see their kingdom

Swimming around with those-

What are they called?-Oh-fins!

~

Walking around you don’t get too far

Tails can take you around the world

Traveling through those- what’s that word again?

Currents

~

Down where they swim

Down way deep

Where even I can’t see

Wondering free

Wish I could be

Part of that world.

~

What would I give to live in those cool waters

What would I pay to live off of this land

Bet’cha down there they understand

They don’t reprimand their daughters

Bright young women, sick of standin’

Ready to swim

~

I’m ready to know what the Mer know

Ask them my questions and get some answers

Do they have gills? Do they have lungs? How do they

Breathe?

~

Whens it my turn?

Wouldn’t I love, love to explore the world down below.

Into the sea

Wish I could be

Part of that world.

~
