Letting Go

 

I’m gonna make it, I will achieve

I’m gonna make it, I still believe

Letting gooooooo, to be free

as a bird’s… melody

 

Over and under, hurdles and boulders

so much pressure rests on my shoulders

Let it gooooooo, and be free

as a bird’s… melody!

 

And when it finally happens…

have no fear!!!

 

I’m gonna make it, I will achieve

I’m standing naked with my heart on my sleeve

letting goooo, to receive

and be free… as a bird’s melody!!!

 

LETTING GOOOOO, IS COURAGEOUS

LETTING GOOOO, IT’S CONTAGIOUS

I KNOW… IT’S SO VERY SCARY…

 

LETTING GO… BEING FREE

AS A BIRD’S, MELODY!!!


Back to Maple

 

Out in LA, he’s gonna try to make it

he says… I’m gonna be the next big thing

he’s from Maple, a town where folks ain’t able

to live their dreams, or so it seems, he’ll never return “oh no” he screams…

 

“GOING BACK TO MAPLE, I’M NEVER GOING BACK TO MAPLE, I’D RATHER

WAIT ANOTHER TABLE… IN LA!!!!!

GOING BACK TO MAPLE, I’M NEVER GOING BACK TO MAPLE

NO SIR, NO MA’AM, NO WAY!”

 

Out in LA, among the hungry people

a cryptic man with a mystic tan rants run run run from the LA sun

How can fashion (YEAH!), pass as passion (YEAH!)

clearly we’re merely masking, our instant cure for insecurity

 

“GOING BACK TO MAPLE, I’M NEVER GOING BACK TO MAPLE, I’D RATHER

WAIT ANOTHER TABLE… IN LA!!!!!

GOING BACK TO MAPLE, I’M NEVER GOING BACK TO MAPLE

NO SIR, NO MA’AM, NO WAY!”

 

I ain’t join back to grown hay!!! There ain’t no way!!!!

Oh oh although, mom and dad been calling, hollering’ 

roam home darlin, you ain’t made….

to make it… out in LA!!

 

(MUSICAL BREAK)

 

but the boy says, “I don’t care,

‘I hear voices, everywhere, telling me be best to leave but stubbornly I still believe

‘in my dream so I’mma gonna do it, if I don’t then- who’ll pursue it? 

I could just sit back and watch, but I would not get to live that much!

 

‘GOING BACK TO MAPLE, I’M NEVER GOING BACK TO MAPLE, I’D RATHER

WAIT ANOTHER TABLE… IN LA!!!!!

GOING BACK TO MAPLE, I’M NEVER GOING BACK TO MAPLE

NO SIR, NO MA’AM, NO WAY!

 

‘GOING BACK TO MAPLE, I’M NEVER GOING BACK TO MAPLE, I’D RATHER

WAIT ANOTHER TABLE… IN LA!!!!!

GOING BACK TO MAPLE, I’M NEVER GOING BACK TO MAPLE

NO SIR, NO MA’AM, NO WAY!

 

NANANANANANA NEVER GOING BACK, NANANANANANA NEVER GOING BACK, 

NANANANANANA NOT GOING BACK, OH HELL NO

NANANANANANA NEVER GOING BACK, NANANANA, NEVER GOIGN BACK

NANANANANANA NEVER GOING BACK

 

GOING BACK TO MAPLE, I’M NEVER GOING BACK TO MAPLE

NO SIR, NO MA’AM, NO WAY!

Slow and Steady

 

I don’t know, (dododododododo), why I gotta spend my day

taking it slow (dododododododo), time is quickly slipping away!

 

All these doctors with their fancy ass degree… say to me!

that the main component to be in the moment is to be…

slow and steady eeeeeeee…

 

WELL HELL NO, THAT’S NOT THE WAY I ROLL, 

SOMEBODY LET THEM KNOW, I’LL NEVER BE!

CUZ I’M ROBOTIC IF I’M NOT NEUROTIC, 

SO SLOW AND STEADY AIN’T FOR ME!

 

I don’t know. (dododododododo) why I gotta spend my life

holding close (dododododododo) to somebody else’s advice

All these hippies, with their tie-dye tee’s, tease me! When they say,

“we agree with the PHD you see the, main component to be in the moment is to be….

slow and steady!

 

CHORUS

 

I’m a woman with dreams that need to be… reality

if you snooze you loose and I refuse to choose to be

going slow and steady…

 

CHORUS

CHORUS

 

I’m not ready… to go slow

and steady… no!


Apathy

 

I’ve been down and out before this, why does it feel like now…

I, am broken?

I’ve been low and lost for sure but never more than insecure somehow…

I, am copin.

 

OF ALL THE WAYS HE TREATED ME,

THE MEANEST THING WOULD HAVE TO BE

THE APATHY HE HAD FOR ME,

RATHER NATURALLY

 

I SAW THE LIES BEHIND HIS EYES

BUT I COULDN’T SEE THE IRONY

THAT THE APATHY WAS ACTUALLY…

WHAT ATTRACTED ME.

 

I’ve spent time, prying at my mind trying, dying to understand

why, I thought he was the man

He’s a boy and boys enjoy, picking girls and tricking girls

but I was in love, and I thought it was enough

 

CHORUS

 

Ooooh, ladeda, pretend it’s all okay

Oooh ladeda, it all can fall away

 

Well I’ve been down and out, low and lost

trying prying at my mind

and I find certain that behind his curtain, stands a man who’s hurtin

as bad as me… I guarantee

 

CHROUS

CHROUS
