Dangerous Me (song)

I see the gears in your mind are turning You're trying to get in my head I can tell you why it's not working You need someone else to play instead What if I am stronger? Don't choose to underestimate I've been going longer Not gonna last in this state 'Cause
I'm a volcano A tornado I'm a hurricane This much is plain Now you can see That I can't be beat I'll win easily Better find yourself another game This one's too hard for you to play With dangerous me
I see the fear in your eyes now It's burning like dying fire I'd suggest a escape now Unless you'd rather build you funeral pyre Trust me, I know what I'm talking about You won't last two minutes You should get your stuff and head out 'Cause you're gonna be finished
I'm a volcano A tornado I'm a hurricane This much is plain Now you can see That I can't be beat I'll win easily Better find yourself another game This one's too hard for you to play Wi…

My Story Shelf

I decided to ask myself What if I had a story shelf With lots of little figurines
Each one to represent Some memory or present They would tell my life story
On that shelf I'd hide away In figures made of wood or clay I'd be told in motionless expression
A dragon - my favorite creature A ballerina for an impossible future A book to show my greatest passion
On my story shelf I'd be able to show myself Without ever speaking It'd be like a silent meaning In those figurines Made of solid or delicate means My very own visual book Come on in and take a look
And on my story shelf you'd find Some animals - a leopard, leaping high All the things that I think mean me
A feather quill to show my favorite thing I wish I could spend all of my time writing These are all the things you can see
What about the love I share How can you know if I even care Can you see love in the air
And how about the joy I feel When I'm with the God I know is real How I just got over some ordeal

Pick a name

You walk the sand and memorize All the shells that hit your feet As the ocean comes in to meet you You watch and stand and memorize How you feel and the time of day This memory that you'll hold onto
Pick a name Any name Who you were as a child Pick a name Any name The color of the sky The flavor of air How it feels to listen And stare Pick a name Any name For right now
You walk the leaves and leave footprints On top of many others wandering All the animals that have already passed by You hold your sleeves and shiver The autumn chill is just beginning All of the birds are just starting to fly
Pick a name Any name Who you are in this moment Pick a name Any name This present, hold it The color of your shoes How it feels to lose A memory Pick a name Any name For right now
You walk the clouds in your dreams The colors are all unimaginable And yet you see them all so clearly You hold your hand out to catch a falling star And wonder how you live down on earth Life just always seems so d…

Love

It's like the kiss of snowflakes Brighter than a falling star Iridescent as the humming bird And lasts as long as time
Stronger than a sword of steel Wider than the rolling sea Pretty as a summer dawn And lasts as long as time
It's found in utter joy Discovered in deep sadness Carried on a hopeful song And lasts as long as time
Longer than the road of life Deeper than despair Forged by the broken hearted And lasts as long as time
It's lovely as a lover's face The light after the darkest hour A friend's hand to guide the way And lasts as long as time
More beautiful than silver Frailer than a butterfly Held in silence and in sound And lasts as long as time

Do a Happy Dance

I didn't know 'Cause I'm so slow Slow to grow And tough to know
Now I see Just how to be Relaxed and free My spirit at liberty
Do a happy dance In your living room Do a happy dance Under the moon Sing out loud While you dance Makes you feel like You've got a second chance
It's raining outside Mournful inside Dark clouds in the sky My spirit cannot fly
Just for tonight Fill the house with candlelight Makes your spirit bright And then dance with all your might
Do a happy dance In your living room Do a happy dance Under the moon Sing out loud While you dance Makes you feel like You've got a second chance
Sing that happy song When you're crying Sing that happy song When you're done lying Dance with feet That never touch the ground Makes you feel like Nothing's bringing you down
Even if the sky is grey Doesn't mean you have to pay If you haven't laughed in a while Here's a way to make you smile
Do a happy dance All alone Do a happy dance For…

My Special Journey

Fill me a bag with my favorite things Light of the moon and angel wings Indigo skies with lots of stars And a whole box of patched-up hearts My rainbow parachute Lucky clover and purple balloon Don't forget the cookies please Now it's time for me to leave
I'm going away Won't put it off another day It's a special journey Of my self-discovery I'm soaring away On the winds of change Kiss me goodbye It's time to fly
I've packed my carpetbag time to go I really hope it's not going to snow 'Cause I planned to ride on the clouds Really want to make my mama proud Here I go off on my trip No, carpetbag please don't rip It's just packed so full of love Though I think not packed full enough
I'm going away Won't put it off another day It's a special journey Of my self-discovery I'm soaring away On the winds of change Kiss me goodbye It's time to fly
Load my pocket with some sweets You know I love my mama's treats Catch a fa…
