Revival

1st Verse:
Rolling out of bed, a million thoughts in your head
Responsibilities looming with a feeling of dread
Time doesn’t stop so why should you
Rise up to your feet and continue

Ignore the hate that disseminates
Your purpose is far too great
This life you live is a onetime thing
Don’t let problems define your destiny

There’s far too much at stake
To allow yourself to drown in mistakes
Today is a new day to replenish and reorganize
Fuel up your mind and get that passion in your eyes

Any comments being made don’t matter
Choose to improve yourself for the better
If you let yourself get lost in the chatter
That’s not the appropriate pattern

Make your own way and live
Move forward in order to forgive
Stand tall facing every situation
Become your own version of champion

You’re the editor of your narrative
So choose what you wish to experience
Don’t let the free will go to waste
Your life wasn’t meant to be enslaved

There’s a beginning and an end
So let your journey be immense
Throw away the negatives
Get involved with the actual benefits

2nd Verse:
Many of us have been told we can’t do something
Each obstacle is intense, it goes without mentioning
Emotional warfare seems to be prime
Look around it happens all the time

For whatever reason they want us to fail
For another reason they hate when we prevail
Some people just can’t be pleased
They want the chaos to always increase

Just because they bring forth the storm
Doesn’t mean you need to lose form
The energy shouldn’t be sapped
Your potential is never capped

Power is an unusual description
There are many different perceptions
Regardless you should never fold
Show that you have a heart of gold

Invest in the correct action
That is the true way to satisfaction
Realize you’re far greater than any hatred
Let your kindness be inflated

Nothing should chain your progress
No amount of mess or stress
Get to the pinnacle of the dreams you set
Then proceed to another goal you want met

Awake to the reality of success
It is something you can possess
Allow yourself to always believe
Then go out there and achieve

3rd Verse:
It seems that the topic of many conversations
Are the crippling effects of differing depressions
A battle within the mind that affects the outside
Thoughts that can also fully corrupt our insides

You’re victorious with each and every breath
Whatever the worry, it isn’t meant for death
Re-awake to the happiness you once had and be refreshed
Each moment that passes you’re meant to be blessed

Take back control, you can do it
You have the ability to get through it

There’s always a chance

That you’ll learn something
That it means nothing
That it could possibly change everything

Let the heavens sing
Let the phones ring
Let the changes of love begin happening

Open your eyes to what the day brings
Have the purpose of life flow like a spring
Never forget that kindness is always worth practicing

Endure

Trying to hide
The fallen pride
Identity subsides
Anger collides
Then depression divides
Love can provide
An outlet to guide
So never give in to suicide

Standard

The beauty you hold is the standard
That will always be my answer
Whatever makeup you decide or flow of the hair
All the other shapes, sizes, and styles can’t compare

You’re the one I hold dear
When we first started, to year after year
In case I haven’t made it clear
I want to be your love that’s always near

The truth is I want to protect and hold you close
I’m intrigued by the person you are beyond the clothes
I want to support your endeavors and be a part of your adventure
Keeping you encouraged and uplifted because you’re my treasure

To me it isn’t about your image because I see grace
The kindness you hold in your heart reflected by the smile on your face
Actions speak louder than words, so let me be your resting place
I’ll always prove that you’re safest within my embrace

There’s nothing we can’t do
You’re the one for me, I always knew
Each time you ask how you look
Again, there’s no one as gorgeous all around in my book

“Eternal”

This song was created for entry into a celebration contest hosted by the producer Dansonn who reached the 100K subscriber milestone on his Youtube channel. This track will also be part of a later album project. We had to enter via Youtube, so I figured I’d post that form of media for those of you who may want something visual to see while you listen. Thanks for your time!

Eternal

Listen while you read here

1st Verse:
Forever, Forever we’ve always been told never say never
Few things actually do last forever
But not many believe in those endeavors

It isn’t simple to navigate life’s adventure
Constantly living under pressure
So, many fall in line with certain pleasures

The definitions get skewed as many don’t know what to do

Love and marriage, commitments fallen through
Humanity and race, both of which fit the same shoe
However, nobody pays attention to what they once knew
As hatred and disdain seem to continue

You may ask yourself what exactly is it I should do
Not I as in me, but I as in you

The views of today haven’t been forever
They also don’t belong to the one most clever
For them to last or even become has been a tragedy
One that deserves to see its ending

You can’t ignore it, you seek a love that never ceases
Despite relationships having left you in pieces
The simplest answer to it all though is Jesus

2nd Verse:
Forever, Forever we’ve always been told never say never
Few things actually do last forever
But not many believe in those endeavors

Open your eyes, good and evil have been around
Doesn’t peace seem like a pleasant sound
Seek grace before you enter the ground
You only live once, has your life been found

The risks we take, the lives we make
Nothing ever goes as planned and isn’t the same
We try to create and formulate
All of standards around us that advance our state

I’m talkin’ mental and physical, not geographical
We’re so focused on ourselves instead of the critical
The information we consume needs to be biblical

We can’t make the same mistakes as yesterday
It’s important to learn consistency in this day and age
So many exclaim they want to see change
Then they need to step up and help turn the page

No excuses, don’t hide away or be shy
Christ didn’t sacrifice and rise again to watch us stand by

Closing:
You want love, forever
You want life, forever
You know the answer

This track was created
This community was created
Creation has been around forever

God Bless

Significant

Grace fills the room each time you walk in
There isn’t another place I think I would’ve rather been
Each time I lay my eyes on you, time seems to rest
The moments and memories with you represent the best

I’ve been tested and tried, but each time you’re the one that shines
It wasn’t always easy to turn away from the ideas that were mine
However, with you… there is never a regret that enters my mind
You deserve the best from me at all times

You’ve made me a better man
You’ve saved me from the quicksand
When I’m lost, you’re always there to be found
With you, I’m never imprisoned by doubts

Our relationship isn’t something that is new
And even though times change, I’ll always love you

Give me a Sign

Listen to song here:

1st Verse:
They never said life would be easy
Even with God on my side it’s tough
You pick and choose rather freely
With the spiritual battle still bein’ rough

Indecision can itself be a mission
One that is sometimes hard to complete
You never want regret leavin’ you wishin’
Nor do you want haste leavin’ you in defeat

With all my gifts and talents it’s hard to see
What exactly God will have in store for me
Many out there with a plethora of options
Life altering status upon each of those decisions

We go about our daily lives hopin for clarity
Not wantin’ the nonsense to get to messy
Risk versus reward is a constant dilemma
Like being caught up in the broad panorama

Such is life a whirlwind of the kind
We can learn and understand just fine
However lack the knowledge most divine
Try to absorb truth with the essence of your time

The importance of the facts remains
We look for love and success much the same
Turning through the pages of life itself
Where only the Bible can guarantee you a true sense of wealth

Hook:
What is it Lord
What is it that you want me to see
I hear your voice in the chord
Knowin’ you’ll always be with me

Open my eyes, Open my mind
Guide me on this everlasting journey
Give me your patience and humility
Let me continue to feel your grace and mercy
Mold me and shape me to continue being a blessing
I know your plan will unfold all in your timing

(Please Lord give me a sign, just give me a sign, God give me a sign) [x4]

2nd Verse:
As you sit and struggle what do you do
I look to the one that made me and you
What kind of pathway did you choose
I hope it was one that provides good news

The many paths presented can be tedious
As only one is necessary to be efficient
Livin’ life at a frantic pace isn’t unusual
Just don’t push yourself toward the cruel

Too many these days stuck in the muck
Entrappin’ themselves in torture for a few extra bucks
Where has passion and desire gone to
It should be alive and well coursin’ through

The clock has never ticked any different
But as we age it seems to go by in an instant
With death on the horizon try not to wait
Your opportunity to shine should be today

Why stand by when you can provide
Give in a little to your purposeful drive
Don’t hide, but go out and seek the ride
After all, listenin’ to this proves you’re alive

Wake up, snap out of the gridlock
Pursue somethin’ that spreads love
You should be cruisin’ not tied up at the dock
Find the greatness you’re meant to be apart of

Hook:
What is it Lord
What is it that you want me to see
I hear your voice in the chord
Knowin’ you’ll always be with me

Open my eyes, Open my mind
Guide me on this everlasting journey
Give me your patience and humility
Let me continue to feel your grace and mercy
Mold me and shape me to continue being a blessing
I know your plan will unfold all in your timing

(Please Lord give me a sign, just give me a sign, God give me a sign) [x4]

3rd Verse:
Are you stuck within an addiction
One that has your relationship conflicted
Can’t seem to stay away as each day
Results in behavior much the same as yesterday

Do your actions require a little cleaning
Does your life feel full of meaning
Would you say you have your priorities straight
What are you hidin’ behind that barricade

Are you able to confess your mistakes
So you can begin to do what it takes
Will you build upon a better foundation
So that you don’t slip into damnation

With every action there is a reaction
Put forth a positive effort to gain some traction
This hurricane of confusion can be remedied
So don’t lay idle as your conscious bleeds

Please educate yourself on the circumstance
Don’t get lulled into the illusionary trance
Become a better prospect to pursue your goal
Your life is a treasure that deserves to be whole

There’s a thin line between ok and fine
Don’t be afraid to go against the grain and realign
You can recover from any set back
Just have to fight with the right attack

Hook:
What is it Lord
What is it that you want me to see
I hear your voice in the chord
Knowin’ you’ll always be with me

Open my eyes, Open my mind
Guide me on this everlasting journey
Give me your patience and humility
Let me continue to feel your grace and mercy
Mold me and shape me to continue being a blessing
I know your plan will unfold all in your timing

(Please Lord give me a sign, just give me a sign, God give me a sign) [x4]

Closing [x4]:
Please Lord give me a sign, just give me a sign, God give me a sign

Chivalry

I don’t want to throw it all away
Just because the way society is today
I can’t blame anyone else
Because I can control myself
I won’t let it die as long as I have my health

You see as long as I’m alive
I will continue to strive
To make respect and love be felt
Since I want to see women grow, not melt

Romance isn’t what it use to be
With many privileges coming with ease
Or rather redefined and not seen as unique
Due to the wants of those that are weak

I can plainly see guilt on both sides
As not many even try to hide
Their so open with their private matters
It makes one wonder if it can get any better

No matter what society isn’t me
I won’t conform to the new norm
As women remain in my eyes a true beauty

I can’t stand to see them undervalued and hurt
When the best of everything is all they deserve
Protection, guard, decency, comfort, and care
The list goes on, but these actions now all seem so rare

So I’ll move forward with my duty
To carry on a long lost legacy
Where I can hope to possibly
Eradicate the poor treatment of the ladies
By continuing to introduce some chivalry

Dear Woman,

Hello there my fair Ms.
I hope your day is well and filled with bliss
You might have a few troubles
However if you need me, I’ll be there on the double

I’d rather see you smile all the while
No need for a frown on that beautiful face
The way your eyes gleam when happy is proper style
Nothing I’d rather see you experience other than grace

Doesn’t matter your height or weight love
Whatever you see in the mirror is more than enough
What lies within your heart is where I’ll start
The pursuit of your dreams no matter what is smart

Don’t get hung up on what others may think
Respect yourself throughout every time you blink
Your choices can shape your emotions
Worry will only hold you back from proper promotion

Keep that desire that fuels your fire
Reach all your goals despite what others may inquire
Your life is yours at the end of the day
Keep your sights clear to avoid the shades of grey

Remain loyal to that of what you’re worth
No man should rob you of your mirth
The entirety of yourself is the ultimate gift
Just don’t give it away without a true commitment

You’re worth more than any diamond
You’re worth more than any prized possession
You’re not just another materialistic good
You’re not a person who should be misunderstood

Real love is out there if you remain patient
No need to rush into an uncomfortable situation
I’d rather not see you suffer, but rather dwell in kindness
So if you can, please avoid the temptations

You deserve to be loved and protected at all times
Treated fairly and inspired to reach the top of your climb
Don’t ever sell yourself short on what you can achieve
Anything can be reached my dear if you truly believe
