Track Name: Rain Drops
I smile, when it seems like,
Everything is raining down on me, down on me.
And I laugh, when the stress gets crazy, boy it's crazy.
How I'm supposed to feel, I'm gonna keep it real.
But you know I got to, love.
When people are hating it's complicated,
But I'm still gonna make it,
I'm gonna keep on.

Walkin' and walkin' and talkin' and movin' yeah,
All because I know no matter what,
Sunshine and rain, no matter the weather,
Raindrops keep falling on my head, but I'm still here.
Sunshine and rain, no matter the weather,
Raindrops keep falling on my head, but I'm still here.

Positivity, tell me what it means to be happy.
In the good times, even in the bad times,
I keep my mind on the g-o-o-d, good things
On the right things, on the blessing,
Woo you gotta take a minute a say to yourself
Rain can't ever stop me!

I can make, I can take it, I can do it, I'm a champion.
I'm a fighter, I'm a winner, I'm a soldier,
Rain can't ever stop me!

I can make, I can take it, I can do it, I'm a champion.
I'm a fighter, I'm a winner, I'm a soldier,
Rain can't ever stop me!

Walkin' and walkin' and talkin' and movin' yeah,
All because I know no matter what,
Sunshine and rain, no matter the weather,
Raindrops keep falling on my head, but I'm still here.
Sunshine and rain, no matter the weather,
Raindrops keep falling on my head, but I'm still here.
Track Name: I Wanna Sing
I wanna sing,
I wanna play,
And I wanna skat,
My troubles away.
I wanna dance, and I don't wanna lead.
Cause I wanna move to the sound of the offbeat.

It's just that syncopated, melodic phrases
Tasteful runs that keep you full for days.
It's jazzy, bluesy, quiet noisy
Chords so juicy, sounds like music.
That syncopated, melodic phrases
Tasteful runs that keep you full for days.
It's jazzy, bluesy, quiet noisy
Chords so juicy, sounds like music.

Don't ever stop.
Can't ever stop.
In my heart there rings a melody,
God gave it to me singing
M-u-s-i-c
Don't ever stop.
Can't ever stop.
In my heart there rings a melody,
God gave it to me singing
M-u-s-i-c

It's music,
Music.
I love to call it by it's name.

Cause I wanna chill,
And play it real cool.
I wanna swing jazz,
Improvin' real smooth.
I wanna smile, and I wanna groove,
And music I love,
Cause it's just too cool.

It's just that syncopated, melodic phrases,
Tasteful runs that keep you full for days.
It's jazzy, bluesy, quiet noisy
Chords so juicy, sounds like music.
That syncopated, melodic phrases,
Tasteful runs that keep you full for days.
It's jazzy, bluesy, quiet noisy
Chords so juicy, sounds like music.
Track Name: Music Come Alive
I hear, music, and it's
Beating in my, heartless melody.
Pounding through my veins.
Gospel, compositions,
Neo-soul, blues and
All that jazz.

I feel, music, and it's
Rushing through my soul.
This masterpiece,
Yes it's alive,
Pounding through my veins.

Gospel, it's inspirational
Neo-soul, blues and
All that jazz.
Music Come Alive

Many days, my heart sits motionless.
Other days I feel it beat again.
Should I lock my heart with a muted key, and never let it out again.
Will my passion never qualify or sit distant like the clouds.
Cause my heart is way to relevant,
Music Come Alive and
Music Come Alive
Music Come Alive and dwell.

I can feel it in the air I breathe,
I can feel it all over,
It's mu-u-u-u-sic.

Music Come Alive,
Music Come Alive,
Music Come Alive and dwell.
