VERSE 1 I am begging at this corner I am lying here in rags But I don't need no money I want something that will last VERSE 2 I am sitting in the sunshine But all I feel is rain I wish I knew the answers So I could end this pain VERSE 3 Winter is coming But I have no where to go I hope I don't die this time around I hope I find my way back home VERSE 4 Cause they say that I cannot live out here in the streets They say this is no place for me to be They say this box is not a home They say that man cannot live alone VERSE 5 That's why my hands they are trembling Cause I'm tired and I'm scared Tonight my cup is empty It hasn't been filled in years CHORUS So put a little bit a love in my cup now Put a little bit of love today Put a little bit a of love in my cup Put a little bit of love today.

Hold On 04:13
VERSE 1 I laid in my bed last night Starring up to the sky The walls seem to be closing in around me Tears welled up in the corner of my eye Seems like these problems will never end I need an answer - tell me when will this end VERSE 2 I know others looking in on me Think that I have so much they see all the things that I am doing They don’t see me leaning on this invisible crutch Hope springs eternal as long as life lasts But I need an answer - tell me when will this end CHORUS Hold on Hold on Hold on

VERSE 1 I recall a time before now But not so long ago I screwed up... I shouldn't have done that Made me feel so low So I carried bags of guilt around me Then stopped at the cross roads Depression came and smiled at me Scared me something so CHORUS 1 Made me stop... Read the sign Regret ain't a friend of mine Took some time to realign Instant call to the Divine Drop those bags now Choose to allow Forgiveness cause you did your best Now change your presets Hit the reset... and Forget the regret CHANT No woe is me My foe is me Can grow to be Happy and free No woe is me I know it's me Can grow to be Happy and free VERSE 2 Think of failure attracts more failure (That's the way it is) Birds of feather always flock together (Doesn't take a wiz) So ponder your good times to get more good times (That's the way it is) Cause roll in regret just brings more regret (Well ain't that something... you know) CHORUS 2 Made me stop... Read the sign Listen now good friends of mine Take some time to realign Instant link to the Divine Drop those bags now Choose to allow Forgiveness cause you did your best Now change your presets Hit the reset... and Forget the regret CHANT No woe is me My foe is me Can grow to be Happy and free No woe is me I know it's me Can grow to be Happy and free You flow thru me I grow to be Happy and free Happy in me VERSE 3 Now the moral of this little tale That heals all broken Souls Take note of your own mental trail Each day to help you to grow And remember just one little success When you are feeling low Go practice this little process To reach a new plateau CHORUS 3 Made me stop... Read the sign Happy is a friend of mine Take some time to realign We are touching the Divine So drop those bags now Choose to allow Forgiveness cause you did your best Now change your presets Hit the reset... and Forget the regret CHORUS 4 Made me stop... Read the sign Thank you is a friend of mine Take some time to realign We are reaching the Divine So drop those bags now Choose to allow Forgiveness cause you did your best Now change your presets Hit the reset... and Forget the regret CHORUS 5 Made me stop... Read the sign True love is a friend of mine Take some time to realign We are breathing the Divine So drop those bags now Choose to allow Forgiveness cause you did your best Now change your presets Hit the reset... and Forget the regret

Lost/Found 04:33
CHORUS I once was lost but now I’m found Was blind but now I see VERSE 1 I had been bound, my head facing down And I stayed there out of my fear I shut out the light, lost all my sight Believe the lies and your soul dies VERSE 2 Felt like a jail, set up to fail Glued to a box, couldn’t hear life knocks Place I had been, knew I couldn’t win Believe the lies and your soul dies

CHORUS Mary don't you weep Tell Martha not to mourn Cause the enemy's army Don't you know they've been drawn I'm singing, Mary... Tell Martha not to mourn VERSE I know you read the news Mary And the news ain't good I know you call your family Mary And the news ain't good You talk to your friends, your family, your co-workers And the news ain't good But if you remember that story Mary If you remember your past Mary Your history Mary They rose Lazarus rose So in the midst of the trouble Mary So in the midst of this heartache Mary We'll rise...

Free 03:18
VERSE 1 Cut the strings untie the things That keep you down, bound, facing ground Lost now found Undo the knot that keeps you caught Wrought in despair, change is here So calm your fears CHORUS No more disillusions No more pain regrets No more running scared when things don’t turn out right No more sad heartbreaks No more broke heartaches No more wondering what will happen to me in the end Free I want to be free VERSE 2 I want to soar, I want to fly High in the sky no more to cry Or watch love go by One step at a time is how I’ll climb Won’t stop until I reach the top

Someday 05:19
VERSE 1 Someday we’ll get together Someday we’ll be all right Someday we’ll stop this hatred That’s keeping us apart VERSE 2 Someday we’ll know what love is Someday we’ll lend a hand Someday we’ll know who God is Someday we’ll understand VERSE 3 Someday I’ll look into your heart Someday you’ll look in mine Just think of the happiness You and I could find VERSE 4 Someday we’ll hug our sisters Someday erase the scars Someday we’ll see our brothers Someday remove the bars Someday we know our children Love them for who they are

Amazing grace how sweet the sound That saved a child like me I once was lost, but now I'm found Was blind but now I see Through many dangers, toils, and snares I have already come Twas grace that brought me safe thus far And grace will lead me home Twas grace that brought us safe thus far And grace will lead us home
