The only thing constant in the world is change
That's why I stay I take life as it comes

. . .


Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh

Been around the whole world, still ain't seen
Nothin' like my neighborhood
And of all the fancy satin and silk
My white cotton feels so good

Searched high and low for a place
Where I can lay my burdens down
Ain't nothin' in the whole wide world
Like the piece that I have found

(It's the little things) It's the little things
And the joy they bring
(The little things) It's the little things
And joy they bring

As simple as a phone call just to make it known
That you're gonna be a little late
Pure as a kiss on a cheek in a word
That everything will be okay

Call in the mornin' from my little sister
Singin' to me, "Happy Birthday"
In the quest for fortune and fame
Don't forget about the simple things

(It's the little things) It's the little things
And the joy they bring, yeah
(The little things) It's the little things
And joy

Give me some roomful, give me seclusion
Give me some peace of mind
Bring me some sunshine, bring me some blue sky

Runnin' 'round in circles, lost my focus
Lost sight of my goal
I do this for the love of music
Not for the glitter and gold

Got everything that I pray for
Even a little more
When I ask to learn humility
This is what I was told

(It's the little things) It's the little things
And the joy they bring, it's the little things
(The little things) It's the little things
Oh...hee...

Give me my guitar, bring me a bright star
Give me new clothes, give me some cute shoes
Give me a ladder, give me some matter
Bring me my peace of mind

Give me some Stevie, give me some Donny
Give me my daddy, give me my mommy
Pour me some sweet tea, spoonful of honey
I don't need no Hollywood

. . .


When you talk to her talk to her
Like it was somebody else
Talk to your mama
Don't get smart
But I have a heart to heart
and just like you would
Would you doubt us
Cause everything you do or say
You got to live with everyday
She's somebody's baby
She's somebody's sister
She's somebody's mama

Now when you go to her
Speak truthfully
Honest as you can be from your heart
You're in a situation
But you're losing patience
Take your time and look her in the eyes
When you just can't find the words you want
And it's hard to reach a point
Where you both can understand
Don't just tell the truth
But tell the whole truth
It'll make a better man out of you

When you talk to her talk to her
Like it was somebody else
Talk to your mama
Don't get smart
But I have a heart to heart
and just like you would
Would you doubt us
Cause everything you do or say
You got to live with everyday
She's somebody's baby
She's somebody's sister
She's somebody's mama

He doesn't matter if
She's wearing mini skirt or business suit
Whether she's twenty-five or ninety-nine
Treat her the way your mama talked you to
She could be the queen shieber, she could be a school teacher
A homemaker or lawyer
I think it's good for your comma
Cause when you talk to her

When you talk to her talk to her
Like it was somebody else
Talk to your mama
Don't get smart
But I have a heart to heart
and just like you would
Would you doubt us
Cause everything you do or say
You got to live with everyday
She's somebody's baby
She's somebody's sister
She's somebody's mama

Now let's keep it real
Nothing in this world will ever exist without the opposite
There has to be a sun and a moon
A man and a woman
That's just the way it is
Humanity inside it
And everybody's fighting
How do we restore the peace
Mama Earth is hurting
When everybody's searching for that benefit of energy
You gotta talk to her

When you talk to her talk to her
Like it was somebody else
Talk to your mama (Watch your mouth, yeah yeah)
Don't get smart
But I have a heart to heart
and just like you would
Would you doubt us
Cause everything you do or say
You got to live with everyday
She's somebody's baby
She's somebody's sister
She's somebody's mama

When you talk to her talk to her
Like it was somebody else
Talk to your mama
Just like you thought for your sister
If you knew that someone dissed her
How you gonna care for your daughter
Turn around and talk bad about the mama
Say will you listen to your auntie
Never interupt while she speaks
Make your words sweet like candy
As if you were talking to your granny yeah
If you really loved them (say so)
If you really needed them (say so)
Love the way she thinks (say so)
You love the way she speaks (say so)
When you need some good conversation (say so)
Say so (say so)
If you want her in your life (say so)
You want her to be your wife (say so)
Tell her she's your best friend (say so) (alright)
You'll be that to the end (alright)(say so)
If you're thinking about leaving (say so)
If you wonder where she's going (say so)
If you need to breathe with her (say so)
You just want to be with her (say so)
If you love her hair (say so)
If you wanted her (say so)
Tell me if you really wanted her (say so)
You wanna step down (say so)
Say so...
If you feel like loving (say so)
If you wanna feel the hugging (say so)

. . .


so far from where i started out
so far from where i wanna be
listenin for answers in the wind
but cant find a rock to plant my feet
lookin for love in all the wrong places
down on my knees and now im prayin for patients
i know theres gotta be a better way
in the back of my mind i here my momma sayin

CHORUS:
slow down baby your goin to fast
you got your hands in the air but your feet on the gas
you bout to wreck your future runnin from your past
you need to slow down baby

thinkin the faster that i go
the faster that i will reach my goal
the race is not givin to the swift
but to the one who endureth
i thought that all my obstacle were behind me
walkin around like im made outa diamond
i tripped and fell and it reminded me
move over and let my angels guide me

CHORUS

sometmes you gotta
(be still)
before you can get ahead
(be still)
ask the universe for help
(be real)
you cant do it all by yourself
(oh)
sometimes sometimes you gotta be still

?????

take some time to clear your space
(be real)
chaos isnt good for your health no no no no

cuz im breakin things and im loosin things
i lost my cell phone again the other day now
i dont wanna live this way no
in the back of my mind i hear my momma sayin

CHORUS

slow down baby (x8)

. . .


[Spoken:]
Let me tell you why I love him

[Chorus:]
Cause he is the truth
Said he is so real
And I love the way that he makes me feel
And if I am a reflection of him then I must be fly cause
his light it shines so bright I wouldn't lie

[Verse 1:]
I remember the very first day I saw him
I found myself immdiately intrigued by him
Its almost like I knew this man from another life
Like back then maybe I was his husband and maybe he was my wife
And even, the things I don't like about him are fine with me
Because its not hard for me to understand him because his so much like me
And its truly my pleasure to share his company
And I know that its GOD's gift to breathe
yeah he breathe

[Repeat Chorus]

[Verse 2:]
How can the same man that makes me so mad
-do you know what he did-[spoken]
Turn right around and kiss me so soft
-girl do you know what he did-[spoken]
If he ever, left me I wouldn't even be sad no
And I'm glad that I knew him at all

[Repeat Chorus]

I love the way he speaks
I love the way he thinks
I love the way he treats his mama
I love that gap in between his teeth
I love him in every way that a woman can love a man from personal to universal but most of all its unconditional

-you know what I'm talking about-[spoken]
Thats the way I feel
-and I always will-[spoken]

There's anit no substitute for the truth
either it is or isnt
cause he is the truth
you see the truth it, needs no proof
either it is or it isnt
Cause he is the truth
Now oyu know the truth by the way it feels
and if I am a reflection of him then I must be fly
cause he is yes he is
I wonder does he know [echoes]

It's like yesterday
I didn't even know your name
Now today
You're always on my mind
I never could have predicted that I feel this way
You're beautiful surprise
Intoxicated every time I hear your voice
You've got me on a natural high
It's almost like I didn't even have a choice
You're beautiful surprise

Whatever it is you came to teach me
I am here to learn it cause
I believe that we're written in the stars
I don't know the future hopes
But I'm living in the moment
And I'm thankful for the man that you are, you are, you are
You are everything I ask for in my prayers
So I know my angels brought you to my life
Your energy is healing to my soul
You're beautiful surprise
You're inspiration to my life
You're the reason why I smile
You're beautiful surprise

. . .


I release all these disappointment
From my mental physical spiritual and emotional body
Cause I know that spirit guides me
And love lives inside me
That's why I today I take life as it comes

. . .


One shot to your heart without breaking your skin
No one has the power to hurt you like your kin
Kept it inside, didn't tell no one else
Didn't even wanna admit it to yourself
And now it just burns in your backaches
From 15 years of holding the pain
And now you only have yourself to blame
If you continue to live this way

[Chorus:]
Get it together
You wanna heal your body
You have to heal your heart
Whatsoever is so you will reap
Get it together

You can fly fly

Talk future ahead of me
That's what they say
I'd be starving if I ate all the lies they fake
Cause I've been redeemed from your anguish and pain
A miracle child I'm floating on the clouds
Cause the words that come from your mouth
You're the first to hear
Speak of words of beauty and you will be there
No matter what he devices
What matters is matters what you think of yourself

[Chorus]

The choice is yours
No matter what it is
To choose life is to choose to forgive
You don't have to try
To hurt him and break his pride
To shake that weight off
And you will be ready to fly

One shot to your heart without breaking your skin
No one has the power to hurt you like your friends
Thought it will never change but this time moved on
An ugly duckling grew up to be a swan
And now it just burns in your backaches
Because now beads are showing upon your face
But you're never really happy
And you never behold
Until you see the beauty in growing hope

[Chorus]

. . .


Chorus
Headed in the right direction
I can see the light of day
I've got love as my connection
There's an angel showing me the way

Been reaching for love all my life
I couldn't find it always one step behind it
Now I know it was mine all the time finally I am

Chorus
Headed in the right direction
I can see the light of day
I've got love as my protection
There's no need for me to be afraid

I spend so much time with my head in the clouds
Now that I've got my feet on the ground
I found that I am

Chorus
Headed in the right direction
I can see the light of day
I've got faith and intuition telling me that I will be okay

Down the path that I walked there was eyes
Somebody told me that I look like I'm glowing
They just dried all the tears from my eyes now I can see that

Chorus
Headed in the right direction
I can see the light of day
Now I've found my pearl of wisdom
There's no need for me to be afraid

Headed in the right direction
There's an angel showing me the way
I have found my inspiration
Headed in the right direction

. . .


I woke up this morning
You were the first thing on my mind

I don't know were it came from
All I know is I need you in my life, yeah

You make me feel like I can be a better woman
If you just say you wanna take this friendship to another place

Can I walk with you through your life
Can I lay with you as your wife
Can I be your friend 'till the end
Can I walk with you through your life (fades away)

. . .


I’ve got this feeling that I need to express
Letting it out so you don’t have to guess
I’m making myself vulnerable
But you keep holding back so scared to let go
If you’re looking for love I think I could be
The one, the one, the one yeah, yeah, yeah

Tell me why you wanna be so cruel
Acting like you don’t feel the way that you do
We’ve got the strongest compatibility
I just wanna explore the possibilities
But if you only wanna play games with me I ain’t
The one, the one, the one yeah

I ain’t got a husband, you ain’t got a wife
We two grown folks lets spend some time together
Get to know me better maybe share some laughter
It just might turn into happily ever after
You never know I just might be
The one, the one, the one

I just might be that special girl
The one that God made especially for you
I just might be that special girl
The one to make you happy- just want to make you happy
One day we might look up to find that we’re one
You and me

I know it might sound strange to you
But I’m telling you this because the feeling’s true
See, I got a feeling that you just might be the one
The one, the one, the one

. . .


If he were a color
He'd be a deep dark
forest green
If he were a car
He'd be a long stretch limousine
With room for all
of humanity inside
Cause he is so giving
and he is so wise
If he were a number
He'd be a five cause he has
such a brilliant mind
If he were an animal
he'd be an ass
Cause he's so stubborn sometimes

But if he were a song
He'd be a complicated melody
That complicated fellow he
I almost cannot sing it on key

But he means the world to me

If he were a building
He'd be a beautiful cathedral
Cause he is so
traditionally spiritual
If he were a dance
He'd be complicated like the tango
Exotic like a mango

But if he were a song
He'd be a complicated melody
That complicated fellow he
I almost cannot sing it on key

But he means the world to me

Bridge: He ain't the reason
for the sun and the moon
He's just the reason
for this here tune

Cause he means the world to me
Said he means the world to me
Me me me yeah
he means the world to me yeah

Complicated melody
That complicated fellow he
He's complicated melody
I almost cannot sing it on key

. . .


Thank you for relaxation, complication
Hibernation, and irrational seclusion
Confusion, all my impurity and insecurity
Cause l know it's God just perfecting me
That's why, today I take life as it comes

. . .


I remember the first day
I met you
we were so young
you were a blessing
and there was no guessing
you were the one
Love is so crazy
We had a baby
and said our vows
That's when you told me
should anything happen
I can hear you now
You told me

[Chorus]
if the sun comes up
and I'm not home
be strong
If I'm not beside you
Do your best to
carry on
Tell the kids about me
when they're old enough to understand
tell them that their daddy was
a good man

First anniversary
remember we
chose a star
And as i stand i'm afraid
I can't help but wonder if
You see it where you are
For whatever reason
You don't see the seasons
Change again
Go there with peace of mind
We'll meet on the otherside
Cause true Love don't end
and baby

[Chorus]

Two eyes
looking
up at me
Pointing to a picture like where is he
Mamma are you OK
What did the paper say
To make you cry that way
it said your Daddy lived for you
and your daddy died for me
and I'll do the same

[Chorus]

. . .


The sweetest honey to the brightest flower
The largest planet to the smallest atom
Snowflakes and the bird kingdom
Smaller than the eye can see bigger then the mind can conceive

Heard a man on the radio today
(Spoken)I mean I'm not going to believe in anything that I can't see and I've
been through a lot of hardships in my life ya know ya know in my life
Must confess I disagreed with what he had to say
How he could he not believe that God is real
I don't understand how
He could feel that way

When there's earth, air, water, and fire
So many different flowers
Sunshine and rain showers
So many different crystals
And hills and volcanoes

Chorus
That's how I know that God is real
All of this is not by chance
That's how I know that God is real
All of this is not by chance
That's how I know that God is real
I know this is not by chance
That's how I know that God is real
That's how I know that God is real

In St. Lucia I jumped in the water
(Spoken)It was like I was seeing it for the first time. It literally changed
my life.
For the first time I understood its power
As I swam I was cleansed
If I had any doubts
This experience cleared them
Now I know for sure that GOd is real
I know that it's the truth
By the way it feels

Cause I saw starfish and sponges
Fish shaped like trumpets
So many different colors
I stayed out there for hours and I only saw a fraction of a fraction of the
deepest of the deep of the great blue wide
It brought a tear to my eye

Chorus
That's how I know that God is real
All of this is not by chance
That's how I know that God is real
All of this is not by chance
That's how I know that God is real
I know this is not by chance
That's how I know that God is real

We're made of the same stuff
As the moon and the stars
The oceans saltwater just like my tears are
You feel me
The sunrises and sets everyday without fail

Chorus
That's how I know that God is real
All of this is not by chance
That's how I know that God is real
All of this is not by chance
That's how I know that God is real
I know this is not by chance
That's how I know that God is real

. . .


Your favorite food, what you like to do
Your favorite color, or any other
Thing on your mind that you’d like to share
Cause I can stay here and listen to every word

Because I’m interested - can I be an instrument
Of change in you’re life?
Is that all right?
Because I’m interested, I’d rather be with you instead
Of any one else

Because I’m interested in your middle name - now don’t be ashamed
It’s between me and you - everything that we do
So let your guard down because there’s a new girl in town
Could you turn it around; I hope that you are down

Because I’m interested - can I be an instrument
Of change in you’re life?
Is that all right?
Because I’m interested, I’d rather be with you instead
Of any one else

I’m wide-open, no more secrets, no more lies
Don’t wanna act
like a fool, but I will for you
So I’ll beg, I’ll scream, I’ll call, I’ll write
If that’s what it takes for you to be in my life
Because I’m interested

Because I’m interested - can I be an instrument
Of change in you’re life?
Is that all right?
Because I’m interested, I’d rather be with you instead
Of any one else
