3: - Where I'm From - | I am from the computer, from Dell and Mac. I am from the purple bedding covering my bed. I am from the sunflower, and the green clover that waves in the wind. I am from the easter egg fights and Brazilians, from Marisa and Bill and Peifer. I am from the stop and look both ways and make your bed. From we will talk about it in the car and the next pay check we will get that. I am from the He died for our sins and rose again. I am from Plymouth and Papa's house, pizza and then brownies. From the gun shot wound on my dads leg, the finger on my hand that will never fully go straight again, and the healed right leg of my mother. I am from the memories captured that sit upon the table in the living room.
4: Nows the time for fun The works over, everything done To the beach we go Bad weather is over now Lets play all day in the sun | Summer Time
6: Soccer Up and Down the field we play trying to get away she clocks right, i go left got the ball, scored on the other net My friends revolve around this little thing trying to learn how to work as a team we almost have it, and then we don't We got this now, game almost over all we need is one more goal she has the ball, then i do they all scream goal! i won this too.
9: Truck Tunes Come on lets go everyone we might not have enough time there are a couple people there waiting to listen to jamz the music starts playing the bass is loud we all start dancing there is a huge crowd fun and games until the bell rings we walk to class our heads held high music has just saved the day
10: All I know Is everything is not as it's sold but the more I grow the less I know And I have lived so many lives Though I'm not old And the more I see, the less I grow The fewer the seeds the more I sow Then I see you standing there Wanting more from me And all I can do is try Then I see you standing there Wanting more from me And all I can do is try I wish I hadn't seen all of the realness And all the real people are really not real at all The more I learn, the more I learn The more I cry, the more I cry As I say goodbye to the way of life I thought I had designed for me | Then I see you standing there Wanting more from me And all I can do is try Then I see you standing there I'm all I'll ever be But all I can do is try Try All of the moments that already passed We'll try to go back and make them last All of the things we want each other to be We never will be And that's wonderful, and that's life And that's you, baby This is me, baby And we are, we are, we are, we are Free In our love We are free in our love | - Try - Nelly Furtado
11: Then I see you standing there Wanting more from me And all I can do is try Then I see you standing there I'm all I'll ever be But all I can do is try Try Minutes, hours, days gone by I want to return to the past Each others perfectionist ideas Something we can never fully achieve It's all how it is supposed to be because You are you and I am me Plus in our, in our, in our, in our Love We are free In our love we are free | Everything I was taught isn't always what it seems to be As I get older I learn I’m not always the most intelligent I have been through so much, Although I haven't seen everything When I learn about this world Its shows me the things undone Then I see you standing there Wanting more from me And all I can do is try Then I see you standing there Wanting more from me And all I can do is try reality sets in when I don't want it to Those who seem true turn out fake I see more, I see more Tears pour down, tears pour down Now I say farewell to this way of living The path I had chosen wasn't that great at all | - Try - Ingrid Peifer
13: - Nature in this World - | I walked along the broken path Looking at the things forgotten Beauty here, and Brilliance there. The leaves crackle as I step over them Fields of flowers around me Their wonderful smell wafting in the air. A bird sounds, the creek trickles by Hopping from rock to rock, I notice the world around me.
15: I saw him sitting there I was to tired to care the mess he had made was to great when he took me on our third date this love was beyond repair but he stayed not knowing, sitting over there he beckoned me to come close the look on his face was morose I didn't want to do this anymore it was my heart, that he tore so now the games are finished since my love is completely diminished | - Finished Love -
17: Creeping on your doorstep around every dismal corner unseen, like a thief in the night as fierce as fire, yet icy cold Sometimes quick sometimes slow always lingering here & there leaving dismay, sadness, regret to those abandoned Hatred, to this intangible effect we are left missing those we love forever unanswered questions what's the benefit of death? | Death Among Us
18: Live Laugh Love Live - every moment in life without leaning on memories enjoying each situation & feeling. Laugh - until tears fall from your face, with all your heart forgetting the sadness around us each day. Love - those around you the days that drag on forever because it can switch & be over in a second. Love each moment you get to laugh & live.
20: We always seem to judge With thoughts and perceptions running through each mind We become to selfish & put others in a bind Those we hurt now have a grudge Our mistakes, One big smudge To each other we must remind That we can't just blame everything on being confined So day by day, We trudge | - Always Judging -
21: One day this will all be fixed When truth breaks through the lies And our values conquer each mess After things simmer down and our feelings aren't so mixed On the day we can read what is really being portrayed by our eyes There will be nothing left to guess
