The Phoenix Rises

A PEACE Of My Mind!

GET UP

Open the box

Of human kindness

Cast aside

The bottle of doubt

Drink it all

The state of consciousness

And expunge

All of your doubts

Negativity’s a poison

When it leaves the mouth

And paralyzes others

As it enters the brain

So cast aside those weapons

Of destruction suffering and pain

So take a deep breath

And start all over again

You

Are worth more than you think

You

Are smarter than you think

Eat healthy

And get stronger

Work on your mind

And all will be brighter

Cause the days can be such a drag

And everyone gets down

But all will rise

And get up

Get yourself up

Get Up

Get Up

Stand above the clouds

And touch the sun

Get Up

Get Up

You’ve got so much to do

And it’s all up to you

Get Up

Get Up

Because when you’re in control

All is good

When you take control

There is so much good

Read

What will expand your mind

Repeat

What will inspire others

Live

What will expand your life

Find your soul

Who you really are

What you really want

And make the world a better place

Get Up

Get Up

Stand above the clouds

And touch the sun

Get Up

Get Up

You’ve got so much to do

And it’s all up to you

Get Up

Get Up

And do something good

Cause when you do

It’s so good

Give

The best of yourself

And sleep

Peacefully tonight

Tomorrow’s a new day

And you are a new person

From learning yesterday

But what did you do today?

The day is not over

And the plate of human nourishment is full

Get Up

Get Up

Stand above the clouds

And touch the sun

Get Up

Get Up

You’ve got so much to do

And it’s all up to you

Get Up

Get Up

Because when you’re in control

All is good

When you take control

There is so much good

So much good

And it’s all good

So so very good

I’VE CHECKED OUT (I’LL COME AROUND)

I’ve checked out

I don’t care

And if you ever loved me

Then I’m unaware

I can’t feel

The pain has numbed me

So much

Just let me be

I’ve checked out

I don’t want

Any responsibility at all

I’m just not gonna answer the call

Still you talk and you talk

But I can’t hear

Yet you’re amazed at how far

I’ve gone

While standing so near

I am sorry

I just need some time alone

And you ask me how long?

I don’t really know

But this pain

Deep inside of me

Will teach me to grow

But until then

Everything will have to wait

And I promise you this

When the time is right

I won’t be late

I’ll come around

I’ll come around

I can’t say that I don’t care

Because I do give a shit

But for right now

I don’t want to face it

I’ve checked right out

Not looking back

Looking forward with blinders on

These chains are gone

These chains are gone

I am sorry

I just need some time alone

And you ask me how long?

I don’t really know

But this pain

Deep inside of me

Will teach me how to grow

But until then

Everything will have to wait

And I promise you this

When the time is right

I won’t be late

I’ll come around

I’ll come around

And now these chains are gone

I’m just learning to walk again

I’m not listening

I’ve got to walk again

Now that these chains are gone

I’m just learning

Learning to walk again

I am sorry

I just need some time alone

And you ask me how long?

I don’t really know

But this pain

Deep inside of me

Will teach me to grow

But until then

Everything will have to wait

And I promise you this

When the time is right

I won’t be late

I’ll come around

I’ll come around

I’m just learning

Learning

I’ll come around

I’ll come around

And be back again

But until then

I’m just checking out

So I can learn

To walk again

Walk again

SEE YOU IN OUR DREAMS, MY LOVE

Spending one day with you

Makes me forget about yesterdays

And spending one night with you

Forgets about years

Of when I didn’t have you

And reminds me of what love

Can be

And when it all adds up

Only you have the key

To open my heart up

To what a great life can be

Now I drive home

Ready to sleep

You made my day full

And feeling complete

And thinking of when

I will see you again

And so I’ll just say and leave this with you

One last thing for tonight

I’ll see you in our dreams my love

I’ll hold you while we sleep

And plan all our new days together

And all we will do

I’ll send it all to you

When I see you

In our dreams tonight

My love

I look forward to

The new paths, roads, and avenues

That we will go down together

We’ll take our time

As we stroll by the roses

Smelling them along the way

Mind the bumps, that we’ll guide each other around

And the rivers

That I’ll carry you across

Till we reach the gardens

That await

So in the meantime

As we stand on the beach

And look up at the clouds

That look like hearts in the sky

Holding our hands together

As each day passes by

The day might be over

But until tomorrow,

I’ll see you in our dreams my love

I’ll hold you while we sleep

And plan all our new days together

And all we will do

I’ll send it all to you

When I see you

In our dreams tonight

My love

I’ll see you in our dreams my love

I’ll hold you while we sleep

And plan all our new days together

And all we will do

I’ll send it all to you

When I see you

In our dreams tonight

My love

CAUGHT IN A RIPTIDE

Caught in a riptide

It drags me along

And out to sea

But I’ve swam this before

There’s a sandy beach

That waits for you and me

Caught in a riptide

Caught in a riptide

Delaying all my plans

But maybe I should wait and see

I mean just maybe

There is somewhere else

That I was meant to be

Caught in a riptide

Caught in a riptide

Caught in a riptide

That won’t let me reach the shores

But I can see it

Paradise awaits

Blue skies and palm trees

If I can fight the currents, it’s mine to get

Caught in a riptide

Caught in a riptide

I see you in my sights

Just wait for me

Nothing can keep me back

You are my lighthouse

On the darkest of days, you help me see

Caught in a riptide

Caught in a riptide
