Something’s got to give

You know that time never sleeps
Keep one eye open like
I’ve got my head full of dreams
All shattered and broken like

Never chose love, it chose me
But I’m still here making stones bleed
So I’ll go on swimming upstream
Till I come tumbling down

Oh, when the working don’t pay
Oh, when you’re living on faith
Something’s got to give
Something’s got to give
Oh, when you’re giving your all
Oh, when it’s coming up short
Something’s got to give
Something’s got to give

Gotta give a little more
Woah, yes
When the going gets tough
Gotta give a little more
Woah, yes
In the name of the Father

Hey, I’ve been caught in the red
Needing the breath of life
But I came back from the dead
Diamond like, golden like

Never chose love, it chose me
But I keep burning endlessly, so
Go tell them angels I’m blessed (Go, go tell ’em)
There ain’t no taking me down

Oh, when the working don’t pay
Oh, when you’re living on faith
Something’s got to give
Something’s got to give
Oh, when you’re giving your all
Oh, when it’s coming up short
Something’s got to give
Something’s got to give

Gotta give a little more
Woah, yes
When the going gets tough
Gotta give a little more
Woah, yes
In the name of the Father

Give a little more
Woah, yes (woah, yes)
When the going gets tough
Gotta give a little more
Woah, yes
When the going gets tough
Gotta

Say it (woo hoo)
We’ve made it
I said love it when a plan comes together
Baby, say it (woo hoo)
We’ve made it
I said love it when a plan comes together hey

Say it (woo hoo)
We’ve made it
Hey I love it when a plan comes together
Baby, say it (woo hoo)
We’ve made it
Say I love it when a plan comes together
Hey

i’m running after you

i’m running after you

 

matthew mole

Of all of the places
and all of the spaces that I’ve ever seen and that I’ve ever been its true
I’d walk through a town I could only have dreamed but the beauty surrounding means nothing to me, it’s you
Where you are is where I always want to be
Anywhere as long as you are there with me
I will take you to the places I have seen
Take my heart and run along
‘Cause I’m running after you,
I’m running after you,
And i’ll do what I can do,
And I’ll do it all for you
We’ll come back home,
we’ll come back home one day
But right now we are called to see a place
Where you and I will change the world we know
Anywhere that I’m with you is home
Where you are is where I always want to be
Anywhere as long as you are there with me
I will take you to the places I have seen
Take my heart and run along
Cause I’m running after you,
I’m running after you,
And I’ll do what I can do,
And I’ll do it all for you
All the things that we will see and all the things we’ll know
Take my hand and walk with me, we’ll never be alone
‘Cause I’m running after you,
I’m running after you,
And I’ll do what I can do,
I’ll do it all for you,
And I’ll do it all for you

People go without wait for my honey
Waiting here for you
Others choose to stay in the tiny cage
Not my people, not you
So won’t you stay, we can figure it out
Find our hope, maybe lose our doubt
You should know whatever I do, when distance calls
I’ll be sending for you
Singing
My people, oh my people
Nothing compares to the soul of my people
My people, oh my people
Nothing compares to you. ooh
‘Cause people like you
‘Cause people like
‘Cause people like you
Oh my people
‘Cause people like you
‘Cause people like
‘Cause people like you
My people, Oh my people
I tried to find my place out there
To start with something new
To try to find my way out there
To escape from all that I knew
I had to find a way to make peace out there
To try to grow up alone to
Find a way to make peace out there but
It never felt like home
Without
My people, oh my people
Nothing compares to the soul of my people
My people, oh my people
Nothing compares to you. ooh
‘Cause people like you
‘Cause people like
‘Cause people like you
Oh my people
‘Cause people like you
‘Cause people like
‘Cause people like you
My people, Oh my people
Say I
I found a place I love
I found a place I love
And there’s something about it
It is keeping me honest
Been living with a cold heart
Now I’m moving to the darkness now
I’m just getting started
Yeah I’m just getting started
I found a place I love
I found a place I love
Where
My people, oh my people
Nothing compares to the soul of my people
My people, oh my people
Nothing compares to you. ooh
‘Cause people like you
‘Cause people like
‘Cause people like you
Oh my people
‘Cause people like you
‘Cause people like
‘Cause people like you hmm and me
My people, oh my people

dreaming again

dreaming again

Jeremy Loops
Jeremy Hewitt, (born 4 March 1984), known by his stage name Jeremy Loops, is a South African singer and songwriter.

Say we could go where our dreams are realized
We make the little sacrifice
It’s a secret hallelujah
Paradise with all its hidden sights
Has to question it sometimes
I just want to see it clearer
When it feels like

There’s nowhere to run, run, run
There’s nowhere to hide
From the hurtful divide in this world
There’s nowhere to run, run, run
Run, run, run, run away

I’ve been dreaming again
About the revolution in my head
I’ve been dreaming again
I’ve been dreaming again
About the revolution in my head
I’ve been dreaming again

On this road your beliefs can fade away
I’m only offering what I may
I just hope we find it sooner
Not alone, we’ve all felt out of place
Just a shade in the human race
And I can look right through ya

There’s nowhere to run, run, run
There’s nowhere to hide
From the hurtful divide in this world
There’s nowhere to run, run, run
Run, run, run, run away

I’ve been dreaming again
About the revolution in my head
I’ve been dreaming again
I’ve been dreaming again
About the revolution in my head
I’ve been dreaming again

I’ve been dreaming again
About the revolution in my head
I’ve been dreaming again
I’ve been dreaming again
About the revolution in my head
I’ve been dreaming again

I’ve been dreaming again
About the revolution in my head
I’ve been dreaming again
I’ve been dreaming again
About the revolution in my head
I’ve been dreaming again

and the waves they wash over me

and the waves they wash over me

Jeremy Loops
Jeremy Hewitt, (born 4 March 1984), known by his stage name Jeremy Loops, is a South African singer and songwriter.

The sun keeps calling
And I’ve been chasing early
So give me the coffee in the morning
A kiss when she leaves me
To get my day started
So I breathe in life
And get to another rhythm and I’m in the flow
Sitting in the backline, waiting for the perfect one

And the waves came, washed over me

Maybe I’ve been stallin’
Baby I just won’t curve it
Just to keep it in your pocket
Kisses when she needs me
Loving and a locket

I want to be water
Skipping rocks in my soul again
Pebbles on Long Beach, slowly turning into sand

And the waves came, washed over me

And the waves they, wash over me
As the riptide pulls me out into the deep
It surrounds me, holds me, follows when I breath
But the air is clear and I am here

And the waves came, washed over me
