Track Name: Magic
Magic

I wake up to the sound of the rain on my roof again
It reminds me of the pounding pain, here's my proof again
I'm all alone in my world of sorry and blame again
No wonder no one wants to come and play me games with me, I see
that the more I complain, the worst that I feel, my friends try to explain that these feelings aren't real
they seem to me as real as snow on the mountains, real enough my tears flow like a fountain
Could I be creating this scene around me, am I the creator of my own destiny
I hear a voice saying I have a choice to be who I want to be it says

We're magic you know it x3 we're magic and you know it

This misty feeling subsides as the veil begins to rise again, I push black mountains aside in this clearing I stan again, I take control of my mind, of space and of time, I'm free
cause now that I've realised that no one nothing but me can ever control me
all of a sudden I see sun shining down, miracles or life are growing up from the ground
even people round me seem more friendly and open, could it be cause this new path that I've chosen
I am me creating this scene around me, I am the creator of my own destiny, I hear a voice saying I have a choice to be who I want to be it says

We're magic you know it x3 we're magic and you know it
Track Name: Open up
Open up

Open up and look into my eyes, you'll see we're on the same side

you and her are on the same side, you and him are on the same side, you and them are on the same side, cause we're all on the same side

All joined to one another, either my sister or my brother uniquely you yet still so the same we're from the same family so go see for yourself, your incredible you're someone else, open up and let your light shine out, realise....

Open up and look into my eyes, you'll see we're on the same side
Track Name: Shine your light everday
Shine your light everyday

As I feel the warm breeze of a new day on my face
gently whispering to me, my love could bring change to this place
remembering the ways, the ancient rules of this game
we may go without the praise but it lifts the vibe all the same

I know how good it feels to me, when a stranger takes the time
to hear see n feel, egos dropping aside

somewhere theres a girl. She is shy on the outside, trouble fitting in this world
eclipsed moon on the inside

her hearts still burning for a sign, she's too afraid to cry, she's not giving much away
she could be anyone you never know, with our eyes upon the ground, we are holding back the tide
like a stone thrown in the ocean compassion goes on and on and round and round yeah

you could be the one x3 yeah

make ya wanna shine your light everyday, you could be the one........

imagine the sensation when she see's the light in your eye's
your her only soul connection in all the people walking by
even though your friendly face, she's never seen before
it still ignites a flame, her fire begins to grow

as you smile and pass her by, moving on with your day,
but the difference that you made, that girl will never be the same
you helped her find her faith in human kind, you gave her strength to carry on
and one day we might need, similar help from you and me

a single drop on this music and grain of sand upon the shore
said we've all got the power to choose it, you never know, you never know
with our eyes upon the ground we were holding back the tides
like a stone thrown in the ocean compassion goes on and on and round and round yeah

you could be the one x3 yeah

make ya wanna shine your light everyday, you could be the one........

make you wanna take your eyes off the ground and take a look around yeah
you never know, you never know theres so much love to be found yeah.....

make you wanna look your sisters and your brothers in the eyes yeah
you never know, you never know theres so much love to be found yeah.....


make ya wanna shine your light everyday, you could be the one........
Track Name: I'm feeling
I'm feeling

Encourage me to fly away, and talk about your plans to stay
Unexpected so blaze, you act as though its all the same, I'm feeling
If you want me to love you, I'm feeling, if you want me to give you everything
you got me, oh....you got me oh....

So if you think you'll break my heart and if you think that I'll just fall apart, thats not how I read my cards, so if you think you break my heart and if you think you leave me empty, I know whats good for me, you can't free me

Back on the road keep my love I got my home in my heart yeah

said I'm back on the road yeah oh, I know whats good for me, I grant my own liberty you can't free me

Oh, I'm feeling
Track Name: Gods Child
Ka rere taku wairua I te awa o te ora e,

My spirit flows through the healing river

huri noa I te toka o te whatu manawa e

swirling around the heart stone

e tu ana ki te tihi o te maunga rangatira e,

standing at the peak of the chiefly mountain

a man, a god, a man

he tangata, he atua, he tangata e

and we flow on, while we stand strong, treasures of a gods child, and we know that this gift that we hold, we hold with pride

Hapaitia e tatou i te taonga kua tuku iho e

let us uplift the treasure that have been handed down

he taonga mo tatou katoa, he matakite

a treasure for us all, the see'ers

he tauira mo tatou katoa, tena koe e te tuakana

an example for us all, we acknowledge you big brother

and we flow on, while we stand strong, treasures of a gods child, and we know that this gift that we hold, we hold with pride
Track Name: All we be (Trinity Roots cover)
All we be
We got to be the best that we can be..... in this life x 2 oh. In this life........
stop
To doubt yourself is the ….path to misery
belief the key to your ability
The world is full of possibilities

to not step up would be a tragedy

remind yourself of …..those who've gone before
what price they paid to give us something more
at times this life can be harder than it seems

let no man stand between you and your dreams
let nothing stand between you and your dreams x 2

self fulfilling prophecy, that if you show complacency then you might set your spirit free
I'll give you this advice you see, wasted opportunities will change your course of destiny


we gotta believe in the world that we live in
we gotta believe in the gifts that we're given
we gotta stand up for the things we believe in ah x2 (then bring back in with believe for 2 more)
you got to believe in yourself, bring the wealth of your life to fruition
the purpose of lifes mission's, could hinge on this decision unconditionally...(believe in)
in this life
got to be the best that we can be in this life
oh.... in this life, oh........in this life
oh....... in this life.........oh.......in this life
