Beauty In The Small Things

Time goes by I’m still in a daze
Should I go or should I stay?
Eventualities coming my way
Should I start or stop this game?
Of hiding, playing hard to get
Ooo she’s lovely
I’m smiling to myself, this is my story

Of what love does to me
Unbelievably crazy
What love does to me
Yeah I’m lost in a sea of needs

So predictable, I’d try to be cool
When you call out my name
It all seemed brighter when ya decided to stay
All this talk of future plans
Stop hiding, playing hard to get
Ooo you’re lovely
I’m smiling to myself, this is my story

Doesn’t really matter if it’s night or day
The clock stops ticking, I feel I’m drifting away

Are we the ones, who walk calculated steps?
Sitting on our backs, hoping for things to change
Many people, struggling to make ends meet
But many more with hands, to do much more than speak

This is my legacy, will you remember me?
I’m reaching out to you with all I am
This is my legacy, I’m living out my dreams
So what are you waiting for?
Just spread those wings and fly

The world is moving, all around us
Seems like time, is never on our side
A chance is much more than just, probability
Gotta seize the moment, gotta make things happen

Some people make it happen or watch it happen
Or some people get up in the morning and ask “Wha happened?!”
Legacies for dreamers whose reputations precede us
Foundational for believers, believing before they see us
We fixing to keep our wings up like nothing has gone wrong
Fly from Rio to Hong Kong, I’ll be soaring with Jon Chong
So are we living or we breathing till we die?

I am a dreamer, and I believe
We were meant for, better
I am a dreamer, but I touch reality
Cos I believe, I believe in you and me

What do you have to say?
I’m gonna listen, try to open up my ears
Stop a second now
What do you believe?
How do I survive?
Feel like falling down
I can never find the answers, without truth that’s free

Hush, don’t scream, I hear you clear
Hush, are you talking to me?
Do you read my fears?

I’m a long way from home
I found grace, a place I call my own
Left my bags behind
Tore off my rags of old
How do I survive?
Feel like falling down
I can never find the answers, without truth that’s free

Feels like the walls are closing in and there’s nowhere to go
And I’m growing cold
Oh what’s the point in holding on?
What if I’m right?
What if I’m wrong?
But I guess they don’t believe
I’m just a man, who’s crazy but right

What do you have to say?
You know I’m crazy, but right

When I wrote this song, my eyes were wide open
I felt that I had something to find
I looked up in the sky, the clouds they all innocent
Bundled in a heap of white

Sat down at the table, desperate for some warmth
A cup of tea to clear my mind
As I turned my head, to look outside the window
I finally found what I was looking for

Paint a picture, the dots on the red spot
Amongst the shades of green, funny as it seems
The tiniest eyes looking back at you
It aint about who’s bigger or better or smarter
It’s the beauty in the small things

Held her hand and walked, the endless streets of stone
Not a whiff of life it seemed
Got my book and pen, void of inspiration
Then it landed right in front of me

Paint a picture, the dots on the red spot
Amongst the shades of green, funny as it seems
The tiniest eyes looking back at you
It aint about who’s bigger or better, no
Take a look at yourself from the eyes of another
It’s not even about who shouts louder
It’s the beauty in the small things
There’s beauty in the small things
Gotta look a little harder

I’ve walked this beach many times
Playing with the sand, throwing things into the sea
Peaceful bliss and all
But when I looked beside me, you were not there

I’m sailing on the ocean now, right into the sun
I’ve seen this in my dreams before
Oh love unfolds in many ways, you never could control
You’re like a seed tossed by the waves
This is my own journey, but I wish you’re here with me

Stare into the purple sky
Blue and red combine, an image etched in time
Am I so insecure?
I really need to know, just how you feel

You’ve been on my mind, don’t you know?
I need you here, I’m thinking about
You’ve been on my mind, don’t you know?
I can’t wait, till you’re finally here with me

My sweet baby, I need you here with me
Those eyes, those eyes, how could I do without you by my side
I need you, I need you, here with me

Do you remember, all the laughter and the tears?
Through it all, you taught me what it means to be strong
Does it really matter, that we come from different worlds?
Could love be blind?
There’s beauty you will find, in you and I

But now you’re going far away, this much I can say
When will I see you?
Breaks my heart to let you go, I plead to God each day
When will I see you?
So many thoughts that are fighting in my head, and it’s driving me insane
When will I see you again?

Do you remember, all the memories that we shared?
I see the smiles, that picked me up every time I fall
Now you’ll be flying, oh you’ll fly a thousand miles
Looking back, I hope that you’ll be thinking of me too

Can’t figure out, the words I wanna say
Is this really happening?
Beneath the layers of goodbyes that never-end
I wish you didn’t have to go

If you could read my mind, please tell me what I wanna tell you
That when I look into your eyes, I feel so weak inside
What could be the possibility, of all the things that were meant to be?
Just the thought of you, sets me on my way

So many little secrets we shared
You caught me with a gaze, no words exchanged
Love is measured by the things we do
You know by now, I’d be a fool for you

Most certainly you are, the keeper of my heart
You’re my inspiration, for a thousand songs
What could be the possibility, of all the things that were meant to be?
Just the thought of you, sets me on my way

Remember all the secrets we shared
You caught me with a gaze, no words exchanged
Love is measured by the things we do
You know by now, I’d be a fool for you

Lazy days, have you disappeared?
It’s so hard to say goodbye, thinking about you
Lazy days, have you disappeared?
Days gone by, lost in time, I’m missing you

Lazy days, have you disappeared?
I’m driving by the faded signs, wondering what could’ve been
Lazy days, have you disappeared?
Not easy when you’re on the run, sit down beside me

Lazy days, have you disappeared?
What’s to life if it whizzes by?
You know I can’t hold on
Lazy days, have you disappeared?
Been waiting here without a clue, since you’ve been gone
I’m thinking about you, thinking about you

State of My Mind

Softly in your ears, it whispers your name,
Your heart knows, there’s no pretense,
Your defenses down, your knees grow old,
This feeling, of wanting…

What is love that it could take you by the hand, into a world you barely understand?
What is love that your face is all I see?
It’s why I wanna breathe, my reason for everything…

Taking a step beyond, the still waters’ edge,
Reach out, won’t you have faith,
Never sure if you would, fall in too deep,
You won’t know, till you go…

Won’t you tell me, why every breath with you is sweeter, sweeter,
Won’t you tell me, you’re my, you’re my reason for everything
What is love that it could take you by the hand, into a world you barely understand?
What is love? you’re my reason, why I wanna breath, my reason for everything

Listen to what I say little baby now,
You’re the one my reason my precious now,
Listen here this love is undeniably yours…

I sense, this longing to belong somewhere,
It’s warm, nestled in that secret place,
This peace, finds me walking by the sea, that glows, with radiance and serenity…

Feel I’m blind and small, on this never-ending beach
But you found me, you never took your eyes off me…

And I’m undeniably yours, I’m undeniably yours…

It’s strange, that I was never satisfied,
With things, that people say are all I need,
I’m small, but my heart’s as big as the universe,
Cos you, believed in me and now I’m free…

And if the waves finally wash me away,
I know you’ll find me anyway…

Why oh why, just tell me why, do I feel this way?
Why oh why, just tell me why, do I walk this road?

Many questions, running through my head,
And I don’t know what to do but say,
That I will put my faith, in the One…

All complexities, clouding what I see,
Oh I need to hear that voice once again,
And I will surely say, that I have strength…

Tell me why, Oh why,
Just tell me why, do I feel this way?
Why, Oh Why,
Just tell me why, do I walk this road?

Only you, can make me feel,
That all my fears and doubts disappear,
And I will trust in love, all my days…

But hear me oh,
For I need you,
Yeah cos I’m only flesh and blood and yes,
I want, I wanna understand, your ways…

No one looks at things I’ve done,
Feel as though I’m living for dreams not my own,
Learned the ways of truth and I, can see that no one is perfect either…

This one time I gave it all,
They just felt that I was proud and insecure,
Heaven knows I try to love,
It opens up my eyes to all the reasons…

It’s your love, it drives me on,
My faith, that brings me hope,
Loved ones, who watched me grow, that I can face, brewing storms…

Beyond all, the mountains that intimidate,
Victory was promised to me,
And I see, fields of gold and I breathe,
Sweetness of the air that calmeth me,
Oo, take my hand, Oo come with me,
We’re both misunderstood…

Know that you are not alone,
I’ll be here with you through this winding road,
Never thought I’d persevere,
But with you I feel like I can break down these walls…

Beyond all, your intentions, we never care to read between the lines,
I see, your reflection, the pain you feel is real you can’t deny…

Waiting for the bus, walking around in circles,
I’m writing words, on the ground,
Whistling trees behind, serenade the moon and stars, with a song, I’ve heard before…

Oh I’m down without, any apparent reason,
Is it cos, I’m on my own,
Walkin’ all alone, shadows appear and disappear,
Lazy lights, line this path to my home…

When I’m feeling like a restless soul,
Flying all around the room, try catch me if you can,
I don’t even need to understand,
Why I laugh when things don’t go my way,
It’s all in the state of my mind…

Now I’m on the floor, the fan is in my face,
I need you, and I pick up the phone,
Lost in your voice, you’re so very far away,
Wish I could, be wherever you are…

I choose to laugh, choose to cry,
Oh I chose everything that I thought right,
What if I had no choice at all?

Everything’s fine, nothing’s out of order,
How blessed is he who has it all,
Is it alright? castles in the sky,
Disillusioned they would never fall, never fall…

I can’t escape the seasons that shape our, pretty lives
Hardly bitter winters anymore,
But it’s true we can’t live, life like it’s endless,
Summer, spring or fall, it’s not so cold,
Seasons will change…

Hey are you like, the one who made it known,
His fear the sky would fall on his head tomorrow?
Oh I’m wishing, I could control the sweeping winds, that carry me
safely through the hail and storms, hail and storms…

Seasons will change…

The air’s just how it used to be,
Rustling leaves’ old symphony,
The green lady talks,
Throw a pebble in the stream,
Break the silence suddenly,
Lady, won’t you listen to me?

Standing on this rock I feel,
A sudden gush of wind,
Sends chills down my spine,
Oh what do they think they’re doing?
The green lady cries,
They bring, so much demise…

I’m coming home, it’s been a while since I drank of living waters,
My paradise, crystal clear right there before my eyes,
Green lady, I’ll protect you from all harm…

Here’s just how it used to be,
Rustling leaves’ your symphony,
The green lady talks,
Throw a pebble in the stream,
Break the silence, your decree,
Lady, speak your words gracefully…

I’m listening, and I’m taking in, all you have to say,
Oh your beauty can’t be a distant memory,
Why does this perfect dream evade me?

Deep down inside,
Battles fought, thoughts collide,
Voices that ring,
Inside your head, within your heart…

But know who you are,
You have the strength to carry on,
And I want you to know,
That I’ll be there whenever you fall…

Cos I’ve seen your smile, it reaches to the coldest heart,
You light up the dark, with your voice and with your song,
Even though you’re not there, I need not look in despair,
Cos in my darkest nights, you are, the brightest star…

The first time you opened your eyes,
The strangeness around you, you didn’t quite understand,
As the years go by, you took your first steps,
And ran like the wind in December…

The journey ahead was long,
But innocence spurred you on…

You’ve got a dream, a passion for life,
So much love to give,
The cares of the world, bounce off your shoulders,
You never failed to listen, to listen to your heart,
Are you sleeping or gone?

Curiosity, your middle name,
How does the earth go round, something as bright as the sun?
Through your sweet little eyes,
There’s an endless expression, of wanting to change your world…

You’ve got a dream, a passion for life,
So much love to give,
The cares of the world, bounce off your shoulders,
You never failed to listen, to listen to your heart,
You slay your giants, you marched on with pride,
Daddy and mummy, always by your side,
Are you sleeping or gone?

Are you sleeping or gone?
Are you, are you gone?

Thrown in a broken world, got to find their two feet on the ground,
No one, no one ever showed them how,
Lost in darkness, they’ve got to find the way back to the light,
Like a tree, a tree that seeks the sun…

Beautiful disaster, beautiful disaster…

Never gonna run, never gonna put them down,
It’s just a lesson of extremes,
Like when it’s bitter cold, walking down the streets in January,
through this beautiful disaster…

Beautiful disaster, beautiful disaster…

Can we ponder, how this mess brings out a pot of gold?
But do we see, we see with our eyes closed?
Look back throughout the years, at those who gave their lives that we might live,
It’s a truth, a truth that cannot hide, no it cannot hide…

Beautiful disaster, beautiful disaster…
