Watching the outside grow Pondering why it’s so I wanna go Smoking a cigarette Will this really cause my death I wanna go Don’t stop moving don’t stop go Can’t stop moving can’t be slow Don’t stop moving don’t stop go Don’t stop. Go Watching the tube for hours Embracing all its powers I wanna go Thinking ‘bout exercise How nice my ass could rise I wanna go Don’t stop moving don’t stop go Can’t stop moving can’t be slow Don’t stop moving don’t stop go Don’t stop. Go I waste long days inside my head All that I know has been said so Screening my calls again Even for my best friend I wanna go Wasting the time away Planning another day I wanna go Don’t stop moving don’t stop go Can’t stop moving can’t be slow Don’t stop moving don’t stop go Don’t stop. No

The water stopped flowing several hours ago Small puddles still linger, a glimpse in the soul Heal toe down the pavement trying to stomp out the woes Nothing is right, everything’s fine, stand in line, just how it goes Held high by potential, heaven brushing the nose Each orifice oozing, overflowing with gold Got destiny waiting with a foot out the door Nothing is right, everything’s fine, stand in line, just how it goes Fond thoughts of yesterday, a battle not yet won Hope slowly dwindles with the passing of each sun Time held hostage, laziness at the gun Feet unmoving, apathy up by one Insides screaming they say fight back and run Nothing is right, everything’s fine, stand in line, just how it goes

Lazy Saturday, it's my favorite day It's the only way to spend Saturday Other days can wait, I want Saturday Let's stay up too late, cause it's Saturday On the couch, watching TV Change the channel one by one Stop and watch an old movie Keep on watching when it's done Lazy Saturday, it's my favorite day It's the only way, to spend Saturday Other days can wait, I want Saturday Let's stay up too late, cause it's Saturday On the bed reading Potter Fly through pages, it's so good End of book, start another Wizarding world is my hood Lazy Saturday, it's my favorite day It's the only way, to spend Saturday Other days can wait, I want Saturday Let's stay up too late, cause it's Saturday Yeah it's Saturday Spending time with a lover Holding hands, kiss and stuff Hanging out with each other Just today is not enough Lazy Saturday, it's my favorite day It's the only way, to spend Saturday Other days can wait, I want Saturday Let's stay up too late, cause it's Saturday Yeah it's Saturday Oh it's Saturday

I wish I could ease your anxiety And tell you it's gonna be fine Your beauty can feel like an enemy A symptom of something divine I wish simple words could provide enough To give you relief from your fears Alliances grow when the times are tough But you've felt the trouble for years And the pain that you feel Is entirely real And its fury emerges you at night And to prove that you can Although most would have ran You get centered and stand fast and fight I wish simple words could provide enough To give you relief from your fears Alliances grow when the times are tough But you've felt the trouble for years 'Cause the grass over there, it seems brighter While the ground 'round your feet grows so wild As the spaces around you grow tighter Simply dance like you did as a child I wish simple words could provide enough Their power relief from your fears Alliances grow when the times are tough But you've felt the trouble for years

Who We Are 03:05
I didn’t even mean it, I said, as you walked out the door, out around the corner, I thought you’d come back home It’s another lesson learned Sometimes it’s hard, but It’s those lessons that we learn that make us who we are Remember when we dressed up and painted the town? Way back then you told me I hated you now. Silent screaming. Late night feeding. It’s another lesson learned Sometimes it’s hard, but It’s those lessons that we learn that make us who we are Can you recall the way we first met? How did we feel? Summer then fall… was it yours or mine that stopped… beating It’s another lesson learned Sometimes it’s hard, but It’s those lessons that we learn that make us who we are

I can’t complain I think in my head every night as I lay in bed I got a roof, four wall, good food, and friends That’ll hold me ‘til the end So I can’t complain I can’t complain I feel peace and calm every time that I board that train I get off, get lost, get turned around Find a twenty on the ground Cause I’m in the right mind frame No I can’t complain Sometimes I lament that I have to walk instead of fly Sit around and wonder why ‘stead of stepping forth to try Oh, it’s all the same And then I begin to complain But I can’t complain I think in my head every night as I lay in bed I got a roof, four wall, good food, and friends That’ll hold me ‘til the end So I can’t complain I can’t complain Can’t help it if the folks around me are insane I can’t complain What saves me is the music running through my brain I can’t complain There’s always hope tomorrow will not be the same I can’t complain And even if it is I’ll get through anyway I can’t complain Someone’s having a crappier day

about

Ms. Maura Los Angeles, California

“At first you think, ‘Oh, she's a little like Annie Lennox,’ then you think, ‘No, she's sort of a torch singer,’ then you think, ‘Whoa! That's a BIG voice -- like Etta James Big,’ and then you just stop thinking and sit back and say, ‘It's just GOOD.’”
