It's All Good

Another one of those
Trackmasters, Rockland joints
You know what I'm saying?
[Girl]
Trackmasters rock on
Rockland rock on
R. Kelly rock on
(Kelly what'cha say baby)
Rock on
(Freestyle)
[R. Kelly]
Since conversation's not the same
And he turned in some shine to rain
Well boo I'm gonna ease your pain
Because I'm gonna be your man
1 - [R. Kelly]
It's all good
See you've already been through enough baby
It's all good
That's why things are about to swing your way
It's all good
You see you don't have to worry baby
It's all good
Cause tomorrow's sun is gonna bring a brighter day
[R. Kelly]
Yes we gon hit the shopping strip
I'll buy you anything you want
You deserve a first class trip
Somewhere far away from home
Repeat 1
[R. Kelly]
Free your mind
And I'll lead you to place
Where the wind blows
And your cares I cast away
And it's all good
Come on, come on, yo
Yo dippin' in the six with the top let down
Smirk on my face cause I'm Rockland bound
While on the other side of town
I be holding it down
Wearing brigets around on my platinum crown
Y'all wanna see my business clothes
See me fold
Keep me from rocking the white gold
Bitches hail,
When I roll we'll sit on chrome
When we do shows we sell out super domes
While you at home burning the hot coal
Honey left you coming home to me like it's a curfew
One nice day and now she calling me boo
And she calling you through
And you calling me singing the sad tune
I wish Kelly would pick up the celly
Got a Philly in a telly with cramps in her belly
Now I can get freaky with some K-Y-jelly
But I'd rather go cruise with my man
What the deally?
Repeat 1
[R. Kelly]
It's all good
See I just want to see you happy darling
It's all good
Yeah, and I can't stand to see your eyes crying
It's all good
And if it takes the rest of all my life
It's all good
Your whole world's gonna be a paradise
It's all good
Rockland, Trackmasters
Nine-Eight
You suckers, screw all of y'all

For a Good Cause and Care

Tides are high
Tides are deep
With a sigh
I cannot sleep,
Thinking of my long hair
I wish I could keep.
To cut it I would not dare
For I know it is a part of me.
However I know that hair
Grows back within each week
And I know I have the heart to share.
Even though for a moment I will weep,
It is for a good cause and care,
For my hair will grow back everytime I sleep
Just as much as tides are high
Tides are deep
Even if they go away in a chime,
They come back and up the beach they creep
Every day and for all of time.
So I know I can always keep
My hair for it will grow as tides do each time
As the seas swells and heaves as it sleeps.

Tomorrow's Gonna Be A Brighter Day

Well Im sorry for the words that I told you
But words only go so far
And if I had my way, Id reach into heaven
And pull you down a star, for a present
And Id make you a chain of diamonds
And pearls from a summer sea,
But all I can give you is a kiss in the morning
And a sweet apology.
But tomorrows gonna be a brighter day
There gonna be some changes
Tomorrows gonna be a brighter day
This time you can believe me.
No more cryin in your lonely room,
No more empty nights.
Tomorrow morning everything will be alright
Now, I know that it hasnt been easy
And I havent always been around
To say the right things and hold you in the morning
And help you when youre down, and in trouble.
And I never showed you much of a good time,
But baby, things are going to change.
Im going to make up for all of the hurt I cause,
Gonna love away all your pain
And tomorrows gonna be a brighter day
There gonna be some changes
Tomorrows gonna be a brighter day
This time you can believe me.
No more cryin in your lonely room,
No more empty nights.
Tomorrow morning everything will be alright
Come on tomorrow, come on tomorrow..fade

Sonnet 96: Thought, With Good Cause

Thought, with good cause thou lik'st so well the Night,
Since kind or chance gives both one livery,
Both sadly black, both blackly darken'd be,
Night barr'd from sun, thou from thy own sunlight;

Silence in both displays his sullen might,
Slow Heaviness in both holds one degree--
That full of doubts, thou of perplexity;
Thy tears express Night's native moisture right.

In both a mazeful solitariness:
In Night of sprites the ghastly powers to stir,
In thee, or sprites or sprited ghastliness.

But, but (alas) Night's side the odds hath fur,
For that at length yet doth invite some rest,
Thou though still tir'd, yet still do'st it detest.

Good Morning From Sun

Good Morning From Sun

The Sun, bring me, - Good Morning,
And you accept, Sun, mine smiles
Let's look field mails of meadows,
Let's listen to shining windows now..

The lost dreams come back... maybe all,
Maybe, confused homeless letter live
Came back home from oblivion, happiness,
The sun, give him- Good Morning, please...

That Girl Is Rock n Roll

(ian hunter)
She dresses in leather
She isnt too together
She looks then she lowers her eyes at me
She smokes cigarettes
She likes to get wet
And shes about a woman as a woman can be I said
That girl is rock n roll
She got the cutest figure
I think its gettin bigger
Shes about, hangin out, over me
She feels just right
In the middle of the night
n shes about a woman as a woman can be I said
That girl is rock n roll

World In Perfect Harmony

Written by ricki & kim wilde
Lets think of the good things
Instead of all the bad
We mustnt give into
A world thats going mad
So hold on, we can survive
Weve got to keep the spirit
Of destiny alive
Just say that we can if we try
Like the rivers need the mountains
Just like the flowers need the rain
Pleasure need the pain
However far away it seems
Im dreaming for a world
In perfect armony
And weve got to face it
Theres nowhere left to hide
(but we need) a determination
To change the wrong to right
The futures a baby born
Looking for us for strength
To keep it from harm
You know well succeed if we try
Like the rivers need the mountains
Just like flowers need the rain
Pleasure need the pain
How ever far away it seems
Im dreaming for a world
In perfect harmony
Dont let your dreams escape
The futures ours to shape

Girl Can Rock

Hey!
Ready for the big time, ready for the small
Whatever's comin' to me, I'll be ready for it all
Sometimes it ain't easy, sometimes its not polite
Some days I don't get it, some days I get it right
[Chorus:]
It's in my heart, it's in my head
Thats what i said
Hey Boys are you ready for the shock
I'm living proof, the girls can rock
Spread the new around every single block
Hey boys, the girl can rock
Standin' in the spotlight workin' up a sweat
Givin' all i got and lovin' what i get
I can't hold back what i feel inside
and if i make you nervous, you better step aside
[Chorus]
It's in my heart, it's in my head
Thats what i said
Hey Boys are you ready for the shock
I'm living proof, the girls can rock
Spread the new around every single block
Hey boys, the girl can rock
The girl can rock
Don't say maybe or call me 'baby'
I ain't crazy at all
[Chorus 2x]
It's in my heart, it's in my head
Thats what i said
Hey Boys are you ready for the shock
I'm living proof, the girls can rock
Spread the new around every single block
Hey boys, the girl can rock
I'm gonna live it up
I'll never give it up
I'm gonna spread the news around the block
It ain't no shock...the girl can rock [3x]
Yeah, Rock!

Why Should I Cry

There's a time I felt I was blessed to be loved by you
Those blessings turned to regrets from all the things you put me thru
I remember at night you used to hold me til the sun rose the next day
Now you sleep and just turn away while my heart is on display
CHORUS:
Why should I cry
One more night
Why should I smile
When it hurts inside
Why does my heart say
Get up and walk away
Why do I say
Why should I cry
One more night
Why should I smile
When it hurts inside
Why does my heart say
Get up and walk away
Why do I say
There's a reason why I cry everyday
There's a reason why things don't go your way
There's a reason why I kneel down and pray
There's a reason why Im still around today
Can't you see that I'm hurting internally
I need affection and good love therapy
I need you now it's an urgent delivery
To get rid of this pain from inside of me
CHORUS:
Why should I cry
One more night
Why should I smile
When it hurts inside
Why does my heart say
Get up and walk away
Why do I say
Why should I cry
One more night
Why should I smile
When it hurts inside
Why does my heart say
Get up and walk away
Why do I say
Why should I put up with lies?
Am I afraid to say goodbye?
I loved you so
Baby I cant deny
But now it's time to dry my eyes
Time to think of what was gained
When I feel like it was all of pain
Can't be right and feel this wrong
This heart of mine should just move on
CHORUS:
Why should I cry
One more night
Why should I smile
When it hurts inside
Why does my heart say
Get up and walk away
Why do I say
Why should I cry
One more night
Why should I smile
When it hurts inside
Why does my heart say
Get up and walk away
Why do I say
(Repeat til end)

Tangled

Im full of regret
For all things that Ive done and said
And I dont know if itll ever be ok to show
My face round here
Sometimes I wonder if I disappear
Would you ever turn your head and look
See if Im gone
Cause I fear
There is nothing left to say to you
That you wanna hear
That you wanna know
I think I should go
The things Ive done are way too shameful
There is nothing left to say
To you
That you wanna hear
That you wanna know
I think I should go
The things Ive done are way too shameful
And Ive done you so wrong
Treated you bad
Strung you along
Oh shame on myself
I dont know how I got so tangled up

Dont Be Sad cause Your Sun Is Down

Dont be sad cause your sun is down
You can rise above it
Dont be sad cause youre on your own
You have to learn to love it
Dont be sad cause your sun is down
Youre gonna find your way
Dont be sad cause your day is done
Theres another day, everyday
(chorus)
Everyday I wake up just the same
Waiting for something new
Every night I have myself to blame
For the dreams that havent come true
But especially today Im feeling blue
Dont be sad cause your son is down
Little mama hes bound to feel it
Dont be sad cause your boy is blue
It wouldnt do to conceal it from you
Dont be sad cause your sun is down
The night doesnt need your sorrow
Dont be sad cause the light is gone
Just keep your mind on tomorrow and carry on

Tomorrow Never Dies

Darling Im killed
Im in a puddle on the floor
Waiting for you to return
Oh what a thrill
Fascination gallore
How you tease, how you leave me to burn
Its so deadly my dear
The power of having you near
Until the day
Until the world falls away
Until you say therell be no more goodbyes
I see it in your eyes
Tomorrow never dies
Darling youve won, its no fun
Martinis, girls, and of guns
Its murder on our love affair
But you bet your life every night
While you chase the morning light
Youre not the only spy out there
Its so deadly my dear
The power of wanting you near
Until the day
Until the world falls away
Until you say therell be no more goodbyes
I see it in your eyes
Tomorrow never dies
Until the day
Until the world falls away
Until you say therell be no more goodbyes
I see it in your eyes
Until the day
Until the day
Until the day

I cannot leave my country

I cannot leave my country
as it is in my blood;
this earth is part of me
and when it rains
its as if I smell new life.

I do not want to see any other horizon
when the sun that almost every day
burns hot here,
hanging in a cobalt blue sky
makes that I already yearn for my own country.

What can you find in the culture
of other people, where you do not really fit in,
when your own humanity binds you so
that you know that you would be foreign
and goalless there,
like a stranger that is longing
to go back home?

Keep Smiling

Written by chuck jackson and marvin yancy
Keep smiling, keep smiling, keep smiling, keep right on smiling
I know sometimes your whole world seems blue
Seems like the whole weight of the world is resting on you
But remember when you hang your head, its hard to see the sun
Theres a brighter day, yes it is, just ask and I sure will come
But youve got to keep (keep smiling) well, ooh, yeah
(keep smiling) keep on, keep on, keep on, keep on
(keep smiling) ooh, ha (dont you ever stop smiling)
Oh, dont you ever stop, no, no, no, oh, when youve got to keep on stepping on
You know that youve got to be strong and understand the facts of life
You wont get no place until you make some sacrifice
Try to make it a little easy when youre doing it on your own
Once you think youve got everything, the next day its all gone
But you got to keep (keep smiling), well, well, well, well (keep smiling)
Oh I know its hard, I know its hard, but youve to keep (keep smiling), oh---
(dont you ever stop smiling) yeah, yeah---, oh-----, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh---
Yeah, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, (keep smiling) keep a grin on your face yaul
Keep on stepping now, (keep smiling) oh, keep your head up to the sky
(keep smiling) oh-got to notice on the tip of your eyes, (keep smiling)
Youve got to keep on, keep on, keep on, (keep smiling)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, (keep smiling), ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha---
(keep smiling) oh--keep on (dont you ever stop smiling) smile, smile---

We Complimented Each Other Very Well

You believed in me as I believed in you
We complimented each other so well
When my back was against the wall
You brace me from my fall

In my darkest hour
You were my strength, my power
You gave me courage to keep on pushing through
Despite some thing’s Ive done
You said that Im the one
That makes your life whole and complete

We complimented each other very well
We complimented each other and the whole wide world could tell
We complimented each other that Im shore
We complimented each other and you were the one that I adore

Most people said we belong together
We complimented each other so well
Inseparable and you couldn’t pull us apart
You have a special place in my heart

With you I was never alone
You just call I would be right home
Youd be right there to help me make it through
When we are old and gray
From your side Id never stray
You have made my life whole and complete

For my love for you will never end
For you were my best friend
No gift as precious I could ever find
For you were so warm, tender, and kind

Your light no more shall I see
But in my heart youll always be
The storm is over piece may you lay
For tomorrow for you a brighter day

Go forth my beloved into the light
For now everything will be all right
Dream a better dream for you are in a better place
Come now the dawn I must face

Your memory will linger with me forever
For your sweetness I could forget never
You were there when I needed you most
Now I lift my glass to you to toast
I will miss you each and every hour
For you were my strength and my power

Violet

I watch you comb your hair in different light
You change the chair and seem to think that's alright
I understand
You need a change
When you make that change
Don't look to see
I'm alright
Now that I look at you in different light
Change the chair
A violet unicorn to me that's alright
I understand
You need a change
The world will elevate you world will elevate you
and when you make that change the world will elevate you
And if I told you then that I could cry
Would you take my tears and wash the sunrise
A man afraid has no shame
So when you take those tears don't look to see I'm alright
look to see I'm alright
When you take those tears don't look to see I'm alright
look to see I'm alright
How can I tell you
How can I explain
I want your love I need a change
In me
Ba-da ba-da ba ba-da
Ba-da ba da
Suddenly
You and I will wait
In your dreams
Suddenly
You and I will wait
In your dreams
Tonight night
We'll finally change
You and I will wait
And maybe time will tell
All over
All over
All over
All over
All over
You and I will need a
you and I
You and I will need a
you and I
You and I will need a better place
To start all over again
Oh babe
Maybe tommorow
maybe tomorrow
Will Be their brighter day
Be their brighter day-hey day-hey
All over
All over
All over
We'll finally change
With a lesson
With a lesson
Oh and ohh no

Always something new
Always something new
Always something new
Always something
Always something

Burning Ground

And I take you down to the burning ground
And you change me up and you turned it around
In the wind and rain Im gonna see you again
In the morning sun and when the day is done
And you take my hand and you walk with me
Sometimes it feels like eternity
And I turn the tide I get back my pride
And I make you proud wont you say it out loud
When I take you down to the burning ground
To the burning ground, to the burning ground
To the burning ground, to the burning ground
And I take you down by the factory
And I show you like it has to be
And you understand how the work is done
And I pick up the sack in the midday sun
And I pull you through by the skin of your teeth
And I lift the veil, I see whats underneath
And you return to me and you sit on your throne
And you make me feel that Im not alone
And I take you down to the burning ground
To the burning ground, to the burning ground
To the burning ground
Hey man, whats that youre carrying?
Feels like lead
It weighs a ton - lets see if we can dump it by the side of the hill
Hey wait up, why dont you dump it on the burning ground
Dump it down there
Yeh man, dump the jute
Hey man dump the jute on the burning ground
Dump the jute?
Yeh you know, dump the jute
Dump the jute!
On the burning ground
On the burning ground
And you make me think what its all about
Sometimes I know gonna work it out
And I watch you run in the crimson sun
Tear my shirt apart open up my heart
And I watch you run
Down on your bended knees
By the burnt out well
Can you tell me please
Between heaven and hell
Wont you take me down
To the burning ground, to the burning ground
To the burning ground, to the burning ground
And you fall and pray, when you hear that sound
As were walking back to the burial mound
And you shake your head and you turn it around
And you see the flames from the burning ground
And you get down on your knees and pray
And I catch my breath as were running away
And I take the jute and I throw him down
On the burning ground, on the burning ground
On the burning ground, its on the burning ground.....

One Family

I have so much hope and anticipation for the future generations
I think kids today are growing up smart with open minds and open hearts
we can do it we'll put our heads to it and then we'll be one family
a world filled with racial stress but it seems every year less and less
those old fashioned standards are going away tomorrow will be a brighter day
we can do it we'll put our heads to it and then we'll be one family
so if you agree and want to help first you must look inside yourself
because unity begins with just us two then we'll watch it spread to all of you
we can do it we'll put our heads to it and then we'll be one family In the end.

An Accidental Man

(music: marillion lyrics: john helmer)
I was taught from the much too young
To never give myself away
Yes I was taught for every secret
Theres a price you have to pay
An accident of gender
An accident of birth
That holds me to this point of view
This time and place on earth
This time and place on earth
You ask me how Im feeling
I only wish you knew
How hard it is for me to share
Share those kind of things with you
Its not that I dont love you
Its just I cant connect
cause I was taught from much too young
To shine and not reflect
Im an accidental man
You ask me if Im happy
I only wish I knew
cause happiness is not something
That I ever learned to do
Its not that Im complaining
Its all the same to me
If everything that happens, happens
Accidentally
Im an accidental man
I was taught for every secret
Theres a price you have to pay
I was thought from much too young
To never give myself away
I was born to worthy causes
I was born to take the reins
I was taught from much too young
To never give myself away
An accident of gender
An accident of birth
That holds me to this point of view
This time and place on earth
So try and understand if
I dont say all I can
A stranger to myself I am
An accidental man
Im an accident
Im an accidental man

The Mother's Lesson

Come hither an' sit on my knee, Willie,
Come hither an' sit on my knee,
An' list while I tell how your brave brither fell,
Fechtin' for you an' for me:
Fechtin' for you an' for me, Willie,
Wi' his guid sword in his han'.
Hech, but ye'll be a brave man, Willie,
Hech, but ye'll be a brave man!


Ye min' o' your ain brither dear, Willie,
Ye min' o' your ain brither dear,
How he pettled ye aye wi' his pliskies an' play,
An' was aye sae cantie o' cheer:
Aye sae cantie o' cheer, Willie,
As he steppit sae tall an' sae gran',
Hech, but ye'll be a brave man, Willie,
Hech, but ye'll be a brave man.


D'ye min' when the bull had ye doun, Willie,
D'ye min' when the bull had ye doun?
D'ye min' wha grippit ye fra the big bull,
D'ye min' o' his muckle red woun'?
D'ye min' o' his muckle red woun', Willie,
D'ye min' how the bluid doun ran?
Hech, but ye'll be a brave man, Willie,
Hech, but ye'll be a brave man.


D'ye min' when we a' wanted bread, Willie,
the year when we a' wanted bread?
How he smiled when he saw the het parritch an' a',
An' gaed cauld an' toom to his bed:
Gaed awa' toom to his bed, Willie,
For the love o' wee Willie an' Nan?
Hech, but ye'll be a brave man, Willie,
Hech, but ye'll be a brave man!


Next simmer was bright but an' ben, Willie,
Next simmer was bright but an' ben,
When there cam a gran' cry like a win' strang an' high
By loch, an' mountain, an' glen:
By loch, an' mountain, an' glen, Willie,
The cry o' a far forrin lan',
An' up loupit ilka brave man, Willie,
Up loupit ilka brave man.


For the voice cam saying, 'Wha 'll gang?' Willie,
The voice cam saying, 'Wha'll gang
To fecht owre the sea that the slave may be free,
An' the weak be safe fra' the strang?'
The weak be safe fra' the strang, Willie;
Rab looked on Willie an' Nan,
An' hech, but he was a brave man, Willie,
Hech, but he was a brave man!


I kent by his een he was gaun, Willie,
I kent by his een he was gaun,
An' he rose like a chief: twice we spak in our grief-
'Dinna gang!' 'My mither, I maun!'
When he said, 'My mither, I maun,' Willie,
I gied him his sword to his han'.
Hech, but ye'll be a brave man, Willie,
Hech, but ye'll be a brave man!


An' sae it happened afar, Willie,
Sae it happened afar,
In the dead midnight there rose a great fecht,
An' Rab was first i' the war:
First i' the haur o' the war, Willie,
Wi' his guid sword in his han'!
Hech, but ye'll be a brave man, Willie,
Hech, but ye'll be a brave man!


An' there cam' a dark wicked lord, Willie,
There cam' a dark wicked lord,
An' oh my guid God! on my bauld bairn he rode,
An' smote him wi' his sword:
Smote him wi' his sword, Willie,
But Rab had his guid sword in han'!
Hech, but ye'll be a brave man, Willie,
Hech, but ye'll be a brave man!


He rushed on the fae in his might, Willie,
In his might to the fecht thro' the night,
An' he grippit him grim, an' the fae grippit him,
An' they rolled owre i' the fecht:
They rolled owre i' the fecht, Willie,
Rab wi' his guid sword in han'!
Hech, but ye'll be a brave man, Willie,
Hech, but ye'll be a brave man!


When the gran' stowre cleared awa', Willie,
When the gran' stowre cleared awa',
An' the mornin' drew near in chitter an' in fear,
Still, still, in death they lay twa:
Still, still, in death they lay twa, Willie,
Rab wi' his guid sword in han'!
Hech, but ye'll be a brave man, Willie,
Hech, but ye'll be a brave man.


Then up fra the death-sod they bore him, Willie,

It's brave to be first at the schule,
It's brave to be cock o' the class,
It's brave to thwack a strang fule,
It's brave to win a wee lass,
It's brave to be first wi' the pleugh,
An' first i' the reel an' strathspey,
An' first at the tod i' the cleugh,
An' first at the stag at bay.


It's brave to be laird o' the glen,
It's brave to be chief o' the clan,
But he that can dree for his neebor to dee,
Oh, he's the true brave man:
He's the true brave man, Willie,
An' the fame o' his name sall be gran'!
Hech, but ye'll be a brave man, Willie,
Hech, but ye'll be a brave man.
