The Weight of the World  – Nancy Harms and Arne Fogel

My heart is a working catastrophe, landslide of apathy’s closing in

This city’s working out the best of me, can’t have what’s left of me.

This girl wants to see some brighter days.  Too many yesterdays with no sun.

I’d like to see how the story goes.  See if the moral holds.

 

(CHORUS)

Can’t I just slide, slide, slide?

Why can’t I just fly, fly, fly?

Let’s go for a ride, ride , ride.

Shake it off and start all over again, hey hey.

Shake it off and start all over again, hey, hey.

Turn your eyes to the skies above you.

Shake it off for the ones who love you.

Shake it off and start all over a-

(Ba dan dot day…ba dan dot dow…….)

 

We work so hard to get in the flow, oh, how the merry go ‘round and ‘round.

They tell you what you’re supposed to be, what you can almost be.

The weight of the world hides in the town, rides ‘round underground, endlessly.

Apartments filled with broken dreams, tearing at the seams

…………………………………………………………………………………………………..

 

And It’s Beautiful – Nancy Harms and Arne Fogel

And when you lie awake and dawn is near

You dream of days to come when you’ll be known again

And this room doesn’t care about you

But the dream holds on

To lead you to another dawn

 

And when your shoes sit sadly by the door

They don’t care a thing about you, still you put them on

But the dream stirs you to your toes

And it’s beautiful

A dream to keep you walking on

 

Stepping into your life a stranger

A shell of a former you

A distant memory of what life used to be

But there’s a fighter that lives within you

She will rise anew

To still the doubt and set you free

 

And so you travel down life’s bumpy road

The constant changing of the passing scenery

Every step is a new creation

And it’s beautiful

The journey is a glorious song

The beauty as you walk along

…………………………………………………………………………………………………..

 

Something Real – Nancy Harms and Arne Fogel

Those flashing eyes disguise the same old scheme

I have been here before

Is this the only way you know to speak to me?

Is this the only way you know to speak to me?

 

The words are cool but deeply uninspired

I have heard them before

I’m not a fool for all your tired flattery

I’m not a fool for all your tired flattery

 

(Chorus)

I’m not your wide-eyed little girl

Not here to orbit round your world

You’ve gotta give me something real, come on now and talk to me

And I’m not some candy you can steal

Won’t be your reason not to feel

I’m not some secret you conceal

How ‘bout you just give me something real

C’mon and talk to me

 

I look inside your eyes and I can see

What you’re seeing in me

And all I get from you is insincerity

And all I get from you is insincerity

 

Your story’s old and starts and ends with you

I’ve been through this before

I’m looking for a shred of authenticity

I’m looking for a shred of authenticity

(Chorus)

And I won’t play your silly game

Your life and mine are worth the same

I’m not just here to fan your flame

C’mon now and talk to me

 

Don’t try and show me that you’re smart

Don’t try and take me all apart

Cause I am listening with my heart

 

And I won’t fit into your scheme

And I don’t need to make the team

Cause I am working on a dream

You gotta just give me something real

C’mon and talk to me

…………………………………………………………………………………………………..

 

Out of Comfort – Nancy Harms

I step out of comfort and I am bare

But what is left it is enough

Just bones and hope

 

I step out of comfort and there I go

No safety net to catch my fall

No arm to hold

 

I step out of comfort and I must move

Forward at the speed of time

I build, improve

…………………………………………………………………………………………………..

 

In the Indigo – Nancy Harms, Robert Bell, and Arne Fogel

Stars shining brighter above me

Gentle harmonious breeze

Wakes me up from my slumber

Slumber without any peace
When I saw the stars

Dancing in the sky

I knew I should be

Free and flying high

 

(Chorus)

Soaring high in the indigo

Who would know?

Strangely, it’s me.

 

Trust your broken wings

Fall into the sky

Even lowly worms

Can learn how to fly

…………………………………………………………………………………………………..

 

Surprised By the Morning – Music by Michael O’Brien, lyrics by Nancy Harms

Surprised by the morning

Beginning her glow

Released from the darkness

She shakes off the shadows

 

How can I be sure that morning will stay?

Could this be the start of a longed-for day?

Could that glorious sun turn around heading back below?

And the hope it brought as it came, quickly would go.

 

But then I see a red bird on a bare branch high

Singing with the confidence of morning

Sky as blue as blue sky
