This Way Of Life

Lying has become when we're moving or speaking,
because us puppets have been peeping,
with our own hands up our own backs,
we've been reading over shadow's shoulder sleeping,
and now we mock the motive, not the act.

There's no point to this pile of slight,
no right in we wee isles wrung dry and tight,
top heavy and sinking beneath,
nothing to inherit nor bequeath;

all of these positions we assume,
lie comfortably between me and you,
we've settled into this way of life,
which honesty could easily refute.

Life Is Worth Living

The road before you stretches long and wide.
So journey on with pride.
At times you'll hit a slide.

The crusade can be wild.
Give it all you've got,
and you won't have lost.
The risks are great.
The fruits of your labor make the rewards even greater.
Life is worth living.

You've got to be strong.
Though it may seem a long way.
You'll find what you're looking for.
As you fight this war.

Remember who you are.
Treat all you meet with love and kindness.
Don't be discreet.

At the journeys end.
Your wounds will mend.
You can say your life depends.
Caring for all the big and small.
You'll have shown that adversity can't make you crawl.

So enjoy this life.
Get past all the strife.
It's worth all the experiences that you'll have.

My African Way Of Life

Today i would like to eat fried plantain and beans,
Tomorrow i will like to eat 'fufu' and palm-nut soup,
Because yesterday i ate 'Kenkey' with fired fish and hot pepper! !
Ha-ha-ha-ha! This is my African way of life over here in Ghana,
And that had made me who i am today with much imaginations to touch the skies.

Pass This Way 2

In case, we don’t pass this way again
lets hold on to what we have
for a few minutes more.
Life is so unpredictable
no one knows what tomorrow will bring
and we may never get the chance
to pass this way again.
Let us hold each other tightly
make promises we hope to keep
before we have to part
on our life’s chosen journey.
In case, we don’t pass this way again.

Never Felt This Way

Huh, huh
There will never come a day
You will ever hear me say
That I want or need to be without you
I want to give my all
Baby just hold me
Simply control me
Because your arms they keep away the lonelies
When I look into your eyes
Then I realize
All I need is you in my life
All I need is you in my life
Cuz I never felt this way about lovin
No
Never felt so good baby
Never felt this way about lovin
It feels so good

Caress me this way

Caress me this way, tonight i want to feel the restless
of your heartbeat, when you are next to me.
caress me this way, there's nothing better in life then
to say yes to the heart, when is yearning for love.
caress me this way, and in a kiss, i will confess
the most sweetest secret of love, that I carry in
my heart. come near me, and tonight lets live both, the most
beautiful insane moment of passion, caress me this way,
the way I feel your heart beat.

A Way Of Life Professed

he is lost
he intends to be lost
in the crowd
he never
belongs
to anyone

he is lost
he loves to be lost
forever

he has no world
no place
to stay

he has no breasts to hold
and keep
him in place

so keeps on looking
somewhere
where he can have a place
where he
can stay put

he is not afraid to become
a stone
only if he can find
a home

there is no one
no place
and he learns it after
so many
fears and then

he begins to love
this feeling
got stuck to
being lost
as a way of life

professed.

Let me be this way….

Let me live my life today,
For tomorrow I cannot say.
I may not know what I know today.

Let me live my life today
moment by moment until
today becomes yesterday.
Let me live my life today.

Let me not ponder beyond what I
Do not know,
Let me be satisfied today here
in what I think I know.
The fear of exploring the unknown
Is the reason men never go beyond love and eternity.
So I pray to you today
Let me forever be this way and
Learn to live in what exists today.
let me live my life this way.

Pass This Way

Make the most of every minute of every day
because you might never again
pass this way.
Every ounce of happiness
enjoy as much as you can,
for you might never again
pass this way.
Life is for living,
so give it your best shot.
Throw yourself into it
and give it all you got.
When it is all over
you will never be able to say,
oh how I wished I had done this and that,
because it won’t come another day.
Do what you need to do today,
because you might never again
pass this way.

We All Pass This Way Again

there are categories of our
existence

others wish for
a perfect living

life harmonized with
nature

love and bliss
and a perfect poise

of the flower
dancing against the
sun

we stay for the moment
we wilt i any minute

those that believe however
make a wish

and the wish become true
mind over matter

and then like a boat
we pass this way again

dissolving in the mist
reechoing a song

that we first offered
to the most beautiful maiden

that you have seen
her smile fading like the

shadow of the mountain
against the darkness of the night

This Is Your Life

I lived part of my life
Being scared of my dreams
Everytime someone asks
What Im shooting for in life
I would hide my true feelings
And when I spoke up to my friends
They made fun of my dreams
So when times got too rough
I would think back on one thing
My mama would say to me
Chorus:this is your life, live it your own way
Forces of evil struck back and forth
Throughout my younger days,
Because I would listen
And care what other people would say
Like a four letter word
I ignored the whole world
And built my own tiny world with respect
But it took time to relate
What my momma would say time after time again, she said:
Chorus
Chorus

Their Way of Life Has Ceased

Mistake it not,
The 'haves' have dropped.
Shocked and stopping a greed...
That bleeds an economy.

Stocks and bonds and savings all,
Are tumbling fast from a highclass fall.
Scurrying to flee this,
Like mice fed on poisoned cheese.
But many have found it's much too late.
They've become fattened by their gluttony and waste.

Draped in gloom with finances gone.
Now a blame is made to continue on.
No escaping is in sight.
Enhanced mansions now scenes of blight.
Stunned are they that this has happened overnight!
But none of this seems to have curbed or disturbed...
Their appetites.
Although their way of life has ceased,
Dramatically!

Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way ?

(waylon jennings)
Lord, its the same old tune
Fiddle and guitar
Where do you take it from here ?
Rhinestone suits, new shiny cars,
Its been the same way for years.
We need a change.
Somebody told me when I came to nashville,
son, you finally got it made!
Old hank made it here, we all should do it our way
I dont think hank done it this way,
No, I dont think hank done it this way.
Ten years on the road making one-night stands
Spitting my young life away.
Tell me one more time so Ill understand
Are you sure hank done it this way ?
Did old hank really did it this way ?
Lord, Ive seen the world with a five-piece band
Looking at the back side of me
Singing my songs one hears now and then
But I dont think hank done it this way,
No, I dont think hank done it this way.

This Is Your Life

THIS IS YOUR LIFE
Why you sitting at home, waiting for the phone to ring
Waiting for someone to hand your dreams to you
You know you got to keep it moving
If you dont get up then youll be losing
Dont deny do you think its gonna fall out the sky
Nothings really happening and youre wondering why
How are you going to make it if you never try?
Nobody said it was gonna be easy
But you gotta do what you gotta do
Put on your best foot and step forward
Knowing that God will see you through
So when you get tired and you feel a little faint
Know somebodys watching you and will help you on your way.
CHORUS:
This is your life God knows what its meant to be
Know youve got a destiny; time is now so wont you see
This is your life no more waiting to begin
Have some faith and know youll win
You can make it in this thing called life
Somebody said youll never make it

Wish It Could Always Be This Way

(l. stansfield/i. devaney)
Into the sunrise
Youre still lying by my side
Baby theres no need to touch me
cos I can feel your eyes
Theyre burning through me burning through me
Warmer than the morning light
Ooh the closer you get
The faster my heart beats
Dont stop yet
cos theres lots more we can see
Well be makin love makin love
While the sun shines
I have spent my whole life long just trying to find you
Now Im not gonna let it slip away
Chorus:
Wish it could always be this way
To always cherish the love we make
Because if life is what we make it
Then lets make it
Always be this way
Youre my darling
And youll always be
My mm mm mm
My everything
Well be makin love makin love
I have spent my whole life long just waiting to find you
Now Im not gonna let it slip away
Chorus
I have spent my whole life long just waiting to find you
Now Im not gonna let it slip away

Dont Leave Me This Way

Of my life all of my life
Ive been searching for a love like ours
Somewhere to stay somewhere safe in your arms
I was so sure
Are you really saying your hearts changing
Do you really mean goodbye
Chorus
Dont leave me this way no no
Dont tell me its over
Weve only begun and our love is so young
Youre leaving me nowhere
Dont leave me this way
Dont leave me this way
Say whats on your mind one thing at a time
And I promise you well talk it through
Dont walk away theres so much more to say
Though my words seem lost on you
Cant believe youre talking like were just friends
Cant you see the tears Ive cried
Chorus
Dont leave me this way no no
Dont tell me its over
Weve only begun and our love is so young
Youre leaving me nowhere
Dont leave me this way
Dont leave me this way
Are you really saying your hearts changing
Do you really mean it this time
Baby dont leave me this way oh no
Repeat chorus

Pass This Way

We shall not pass this way again
Spoke the old man to his friend
For many lives, we have known
And many children, we've seen grown.
As you walk a path but one time
And though it seems the same
Every road has a different meaning
And every teardrop, a different pain.
We have sinned and saw sin
We have hated and we we had friends
But now we shall all be judged,
For when we hated, should we have loved.
Should we had fought, when we fled
Should we had watched when we had sinned
Should we had cried when we bleed,
I don't know, for we shall not come again.
When we go through life, this one time
We should do the best that we could
Live a life, and be its pride,
And be ready for judgement, when we die.
You pass this way but one time
You live a life but one time
You can help a soul but one time,
And one time, is all that is asked.
So when you pass this way again
Never be in a hurry when you walk by
Be you a woman or be you a man,
It never ever hurts, to only but try.

This Is The Life

I eat filet mignon seven times a day
My bathtubs filled with perrier
What can I say
This is the life
I buy a dozen cars when Im in the mood
I hire somebody to chew my food
Im an upwardly mobile dude
This is the life
They say that money corrupts you
But I cant really tell
I got the whole world at my feet
And I think its pretty swell
I got women lined up outside my door
Theyve been waitin there since the week before
Who could ask for more
This is the life
Youre dead for a real long time
You just cant prevent it
So if money cant buy happiness
I guess Ill have to rent it
Yeah, every day I make the front page news
No time to pay my dues
I got a million pairs of shoes
This is the life
I got a solid gold cadillac
I make a fortune while I sleep
You can tell Im a living legend
Not some ordinary creep
No way, Im the boss, the big cheese
Yeah, I got this town on its knobby little knees
And I can do just what I please
This is the life
Thats right, Im the king, number one
I buy monographed kleenex by the ton
I pay the bills, I call the shots
I grease the palms, I buy the yachts
One thing I can guarantee
The best things in life, they sure aint free
Its such a thrill just to be me
This is the life
Waah, this is the life

Life's Too Short To Love This Fast

You say hello, I say goodbye
You go your way and I go mine
There's not much time for you and I these days
We work too hard, we're gone too much
And we're too tired to even touch
So just how long can we go on this way
Oh, life's too short to love this fast
If we don't slow down our hearts won't last
We can't keep up this pace we're on right now
We burn the candle at both ends
The circle turns, we start again
Let's make our future better than our past
Life's too short to love this fast
Let's take some time, let's get away
Let's pack our bags and leave today
Girl, anyplace would be okay right now
Just leave your pager here at home
And I won't carry my cell phone
We need to find some time alone somehow
Yeah, life's too short to love this fast
If we don't slow down our hearts won't last
We can't keep up this pace we're on right now
We burn the candle at both ends
The circle turns, we start again
Let's make our future better than our past
Life's too short to love this fast
--- Instrumental ---
We're spinnin' our wheels
Forgetting how love feels
Let's slow down before it's too late
'Cause life's too short to love this fast
If we don't slow down our hearts won't last
Let's make our future better than our past
Life's too short to love this fast
Love this fast
Life's too short...

Observe the Quality of Your Way of Life

A degree?
I think I have a couple,
Of those worthless things myself.
A man with a mind,
And a mission he can produce.
Needs to network his talents.
And not become seduced,
By pledging to fraternities.
To become induced by materialism.
Pursued by greed.
Like those in such selective groups do.
Those who now say,
They can do what they choose!

A degree only shows a conformity to rules.
By an approval stamped on a piece of paper.
Proving the one receiving it...
Is fit to be shown,
How to screw over others too!

Observe the quality of your way of life.
Who with a degree has made it right?
Who with a BA, MA and/or PHD...
Has shown they had sense enough,
To avoid mistakes made...
That has brought today's economy,
To the brink of a catastrophe!

Who with a degree,
Can insist they have common sense?
And if this debate leads into an argument...
Be prepared to defend yourself.
Since talking BS politics...
Those educated,
Do their best at it!

A degree?
I think I have a couple,
Of those worthless things myself.
A man with a mind,
And a mission he can produce.
Needs to network his talents.
And not become seduced...
By the wickedness of luxuries.
That has increased more crime.
With homelessness and hunger!
Hosted by a society...
Dieting on addictions of all kinds!
