Track Name: His Eye Is On The Sparrow
HIS EYE IS ON THE SPARROW

WHY SHOULD I FEEL DISCOURAGED
AND WHY SHOULD THE SHADOWS COME
WHY SHOULD MY HEART BE LONELY
AND LONG FOR MY HEAVEN - HEAVENLY HOME?
SINCE JESUS IS MY PORTION
MY CONSTANT FRIEND IS HE
HIS EYE IS ON THE SPARROW
AND I KNOW HE WATCHES ME
Track Name: (They're Gonna Be) Looking At You
(THEY’RE GONNA BE) LOOKING AT YOU

VERSE 1
NO MATTER HOW HARD YOU TRY YOU CAN’T GET OUT
THE WALLS ARE MUCH TOO WIDE TO GO AROUND
THEY STAND SO TALL YOU CAN’T CLIMB OVER
AND IN THE GROUND SO DEEP YOU CAN’T CRAWL UNDER
SEEMS YOUR DEPARTURE DATE IS NEVER

CHORUS
THEY’RE GONNA BE LOOKING AT YOU
NO MATTER WHERE YOU RUN TO
UNTIL YOU FACE THE TRUTH
THEY’RE GONNA BE LOOKING AT YOU
BE CAREFUL OF THE THINGS YOU DO
YOUR FREEDOM’S ALL UP TO YOU

VERSE 2
YOU’RE POUNDING ON THE WALLS LOOKING FOR A HOLLOW TONE
JUST THINKING YOU’VE FOUND A WAY TO FIND THAT DOOR THAT LOCK YOU IN
THE HARDER YOU HIT THE MORE IMPATIENT YOU’RE GONNA GET
SO TAKE IT FROM A BROTHA WHO KNOWS, GOING THAT ROUTE
YOU’RE NEVER GONNA WIN

CHORUS
THEY’RE GONNA BE LOOKING AT YOU
NO MATTER WHERE YOU RUN TO
UNTIL YOU FACE THE TRUTH
THEY’RE GONNA BE LOOKING AT YOU
BE CAREFUL OF THE THINGS YOU DO
YOUR FREEDOM’S ALL UP TO YOU

BRIDGE
OUTSIDE IS WHERE YOU WANNA BE
YOU WANNA LIVE FREE TO SET YOUR MIND AT EASE
EVENTUALLY ENERGY
YOU’LL HAVE NO MORE AND YOUR BODY WILL SOON BE WORN
SEARCHIN’ FOR SOME PEACE OF MIND
IT'S GONNA BE SO HARD TO FIND
UNTIL YOU CHANGE YOUR LIFE

ADLIBS
ALL EYES ARE GONNA BE ON YOU NO MATTER WHERE YOU RUN TO
BECAUSE OF THE KIND OF THINGS YOU DO
WHAT YOU SEW IS SURELY WHAT YOU’RE GONNA REAP, BELIEVE ME
FREE YOUR MIND, THAT WALL WILL BE EASIER TO CLIMB
Track Name: Gotta Find A Way
GOTTA FIND A WAY

VERSE 1
EACH NIGHT BEFORE I LAY DOWN I PRAY
THAT TOMORROW WILL BE THE DAY
I GET ENOUGH MENTAL STRENGTH TO SPEAK
AND LET HER KNOW ALL ABOUT ME
THEN I DRIFT OFF TO SLEEP
AND I BEGIN TO DREAM
BUT NEVER A NIGHTMARE
CAUSE SHE’S THE ONLY ONE THERE

CHORUS
SO I GOTTA FIND A WAY TO HER HEART
DO THE BEST I CAN TO IMPRESS THIS GIRL
FIND MY WAY TO HER HEART
CAUSE I REALLY LOVE HER

VERSE 2
THEN MORNING COMES AND I AWAKE.
MY FIRST BREATH OF THE DAY I TAKE
MY VISION IS STILL A BLUR
BUT MY FIRST THOUGHT IS ONLY HER
THEN TO THE SHOWER I RUN
TO FACE MY MIRROW
BUT IT’S NOT MY FACE I SEE
BUT THE FACE I SEE IS HERS

CHORUS
SO I GOTTA FIND A WAY TO HER HEART
DO THE BEST I CAN TO IMPRESS THIS GIRL
FIND MY WAY TO HER HEART
CAUSE I REALLY LOVE HER

BRIDGE
SEARCHING FOR THE RIGHT WORDS TO SAY TO HER
GOT TO GET MY ACT TOGETHER
SEARCHING FOR THE WORDS TODAY, GOT TO FIND MY WAY
Track Name: If This Is Love
IF THIS IS LOVE

VERSE 1
THOUGHTS WANDER THROUGH MY MIND EVERYDAY
YOU’RE BACK HOME AGAIN, ARE YOU HERE TO STAY?
I STILL HAVE THESE VISIONS OF WHAT USED TO BE
THE INTIMATE TIME SPENT BETWEEN YOU AND ME
SAID WE’D FOREVER BE BY EACH OTHER’S SIDE (YES WE DID)
I STOOD ON THAT PROMISE BUT YOU LIED
I THOUGHT PROMISES WERE MEANT TO KEEP
BUT THEY’RE ONLY WORDS IF THERE’S NO SINCERITY

CHORUS
YOU NEVER GAVE ME NO REASON WHY
YOU LEFT WITH EVEN SAYING GOODBYE
IF THIS IS LOVE I'D HATE TO SEE HOT THINGS WOUD BE
IF THERE WS NO LOVE IN YOUR HEART FOR ME

VERSE 2
NOW ONE MUST BE CRUEL TO KEEP BREAKING ANOTHER’S HEART
AND I WAS A FOOL TO LET YOU RIP MINE APART
NOW THIS IS WHERE I MUST TAKE A STAND, AS A MAN
AND RELEASE MY STRESS BY LETTING GO OF YOUR HAND
BELIEVE ME I DON'T WANNA DO IT NAW, BUT

CHORUS
YOU NEVER GAVE ME NO REASON WHY
YOU LEFT WITH EVEN SAYING GOODBYE
IF THIS IS LOVE I'D HATE TO SEE HOT THINGS WOUD BE
IF THERE WS NO LOVE IN YOUR HEART FOR ME

ADLIBS
I’M AFRAID I’VE GOT TO LET YOU GO
MY POOR HEART CAN'T TAKE NO MORE
I CAN DO BAD ALL BY MYSELF
FOR THAT I DON'T NEED NOBODY ELSE
RIGHT HERE IS WHERE I DRAW THE LINE MY SISTA
I’D RATHER BE LONELY, SO LONELY BABY
LOVE WILL FIND ME AGAIN
BELIEVE ME WHEN I TELL YOU GIRL
THAT YOU AIN’T THE ONLY WOMAN IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD
Track Name: Love Natural
LOVE NATURAL

VERSE 1
AS THE FISH SWIM THE SEA, LIKE THE WIND BLOWING
ALL THE WORDS COME NATURALLY TO ME
THAT DESCRIBES JUST HOW MUCH I DO LOVE YOU LADY
LIKE THE BIRDS IN THE AIR FLY WITHOUT A CARE
NOTHING ELSE COMPARES TO YOU
LIKE A KING TREATS HIS QUEEN
THERE’S NOTHING I WOULD NOT DO FOR YOU

PRE CHORUS
I’LL TRAVEL THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD TWICE IN A DAY
FOR YOU NOTHING’S IMPOSSIBLE
I’LL GO TO LET THE WHOLE WORLD KNOW
OUR LOVE IS PURELY NATURAL

CHORUS
OUR LOVE WILL LAST BEYOND THE END OF TIME
TWO HAVE TO GROW A LOVE AS STRONG AS YOURS AND MINE
LOVE HAS TO START AS FRIENDS FOR IT TO GROW
AND FRIENDSHIP’S THE MAIN INGREDIENT FOR LOVE NATURAL

VERSE 2
AS TIME NEVER STAND STILL MY HEART NEVER WILL
STOP BEATING FOR YOU MY DEAR
ALL THE LOVE YOU’LL EVER NEED IS STORED INSIDE OF ME
AND AS THE GRESS AND FLOWERS GROW TO LET THE WHOLE WORLD KNOW
THAT GOD IS STILL IN FULL CONTROL
ONLY DEATH CAN SEPARATE
OUR HEAVENLY UNITLY

PRE CHORUS
I’LL TRAVEL THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD TWICE IN A DAY
FOR YOU NOTHING’S IMPOSSIBLE
I’LL GO TO LET THE WHOLE WORLD KNOW
OUR LOVE IS PURELY NATURAL

CHORUS
OUR LOVE WILL LAST BEYOND THE END OF TIME
TWO HAVE TO GROW A LOVE AS STRONG AS YOURS AND MINE
LOVE HAS TO START AS FRIENDS FOR IT TO GROW
AND FRIENDSHIP’S THE MAIN INGREDIENT FOR LOVE NATURAL
Track Name: The Wedding Song
THE WEDDING SONG

VERSE 1
STANDING EYE TO EYE, HEART TO HEART
MAKING VOWS TO NEVER FALL APART
YOU’RE IN LOVE TOGETHER
IN HARMONY YOUR HEARTS WILL START TO SING
ONCE YOU’VE FINALLY PLACED YOUR WEDDING RINGS
YOU’LL BE JOINED FOREVER
YOU’LL BE AS ONE IN LOVE
TIL DEATH DO YOU PART

CHORUS
THE WORLD IS WISHING ALL THE BEST FOR YOU
AND MAY THE DREAMS YOU DREAM, THEY ALL COME TRUE
AMD MAY YOUR LIVES BE FILLED WITH HAPPINESS
THE WORLD IS WISHING FOR YOU ALL THE BEST, ALL THE BEST

VERSE 2
MAKING STEPS TOWARD A NEW LIFE
CAN'T WAIT TIL THE PREACHER SAYS “HUSBAND AND WIFE”
CAUSE YOU’RE SON ANXIOUS
THE HONEYMOON IS WAITING FOR YOU
CAN'T WAIT TO BE ALONE, JUST YOU TWO
YOU’RE SO IMPATIENT
SO EXCITING TO START LIFE ANEW
ALL THE BEST TO YOU

CHORUS
THE WORLD IS WISHING ALL THE BEST FOR YOU
AND MAY THE DREAMS YOU DREAM, THEY ALL COME TRUE
AMD MAY YOUR LIVES BE FILLED WITH HAPPINESS
THE WORLD IS WISHING FOR YOU ALL THE BEST, ALL THE BEST
Track Name: Future Love
FUTURE LOVE

VERSE 1
LOOKING IN THE MIRROR OF MY PAST
VIEWING HOW THINGS USED TO BE
LONELY IS THE WORD TO BEST DESCRIBE WHAT I SEE
SADNESS, STRESS AND SALTY TEARS COVERED
EVERY PART OF MY FACE
UNTIL OUR LOVE HAD FALLEN INTO PLACE
IT’S AMAZING THOUGH THAT I HAD TO GO THROUGH THINGS TO GROW
TO BECOME MATURE ENOUGH TO KNOW
THAT LOVE DIDN'T LOVE ME

VERSE 2
LOOKING IN THE MIRROR THINKIN’ ‘BOUT MY FUTURE
WONDERING WHAT IT’S GONNA BRING
WILL IT BE HAPPY OR SAD FOR ME
IF I COULD CONTROL WHAT’S TO COME I WOULD
ADD TO MY FUTURE SOMEONE
SO FAITHFUL, UNCONDITIONAL
SHE’LL BE MY ONLY LOVE
(AND) FINALLY HAPPINESS WOULD BE HEADED TOWARD ME
BUT PRESENTLY
I’LL DEAL WITH MY REALITY

BRIDGE
THE PRESENT IS THE ONLY THING I KNOW
AND TO MY FUTURE LOVE IS WHERE I’M TRYING TO GO
IT’S AMAZING TO KNOW THAT I’VE STILL GOT TO GO
THROUGH SOME THINGS TO GROW
TO LEARN TO LOVE
THE ONE THAT’S GONNA LOVE ME

TAG
TO MY FUTURE LOVE
THAT’S WHERE I’M TRYING TO GO
Track Name: Wasting Your Time
WASTING YOUR TIME

VERSE 1
SHE’S OUT ONLY TO BREAK YOUNG HEARTS
TAKIN’ MONEY FROM YOU OLD MEN, TOO
YOU’S BETTER HOLD TIGHT TO YOUR FEELINGS
CAUSE HER NEXT VICTIM JUST MIGHT BE YOU

CHORUS
YOU’LL JUST BE WASTING YOUR TIME
DON'T STEP TO HER IF IT’S TRUE LOVE YOU’RE OUT TO FIND
FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO’LL TAKE CHANCE
TAKE IT LIKE A MAN WHEN SHE CRUSHES YOUR HEART IN THE PALM OF HER HANDS

VERSE 2
BROTHAS WITH BROKEN HEARTS ARE HER PREY
AND YOU’D BEST BELIEVE SHE’LL USE A MAN WITH LOW SELF ESTEEM
TAKE IT FROM ONE WHO TRULTY KNOWS
CAUSE THE LAST SOUL SHE STOLE BELONGED TO ME

CHORUS
YOU’LL JUST BE WASTING YOUR TIME
DON'T STEP TO HER IF IT’S TRUE LOVE YOU’RE OUT TO FIND
FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO’LL TAKE CHANCE
TAKE IT LIKE A MAN WHEN SHE CRUSHES YOUR HEART IN THE PALM OF HER HANDS
Track Name: All You Need Is Love
ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE

VERSE 1
THEY ONLY SEE YOUR SHELL THEY COULD NEVER TELL
HOW YOU REALLY FEEL INSIDE
THE HAPPY LADY THEY SEE THEY EXPECT YOU TO ALWAYS BE
BUT FROM THEM THE TRUTH YOU HIDE
YOUR SMILE IS JUST A STAIN SITTING ON TOP OF YOU PAIN
YOU NEED TO RISE ABOVE
MY MAMA TAUGHT ME LADIES DESERVE RESPECT AND NOTHING LESS
ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE

CHORUS
SOMEONE WHO’LL TAKE TIME FROM HIS DAY
AND SPEND IT WITH YOU
ONE WHO WILL SHOW THAT HE IS WILLING TO GO
TO THE EXTREME TO GIVE YOU LOVE

VERSE 2
I SEE THE HURT WITHIN GIRL YOU DON’T NEED FRIENDS
IF THAT’S WHAT YOU SAY THEY ARE
A REAL FRIEND INDEED WILL BE THERE IN YOUR TIME OF NEED
TO FILL YOUR EMPTY HEART
WITH JOY TO REPLACE THE PAIN, REPLACE THE PAIN
YOU’LL HAVE A HAPPY HEART AGAIN
(AND) TOO MUCH AFFECTION IS NEVER ENOUGH
WHEN YOU’RE IN NEED OF LOVE

CHORUS
SOMEONE WHO’LL TAKE TIME FROM HIS DAY
AND SPEND IT WITH YOU
ONE WHO WILL SHOW THAT HE IS WILLING TO GO
TO THE EXTREME TO GIVE YOU LOVE
Track Name: Reprise
REPRISE

SOMEONE WHO’LL TAKE TIME FROM HIS DAY
AND SPEND IT WITH YOU
ONE WHO WILL SHOW THAT HE’S WILLING TO GO
TO THE EXTREME TO GIVE YOU LOVE
Track Name: Listen To Your Heart
LISTEN TO YOUR HEART

VERSE 1
SHE WENT HER WAY, I TURNED AND WALKED MINE
BOTH AGREED THAT SAYING GOODBYE WOULD MAKE OUR LIVES JUST FINE
MY MIND SAID YES, IT’S BEST TO LET HER BE
BUT WHEN LISTENING TO MY HEART, IT DIDN NOT AGREE WITH ME

CHORUS
I THOUGHTBALL THE FEELING WARE GONE
CAUSE MY LIFE WAS STILL MOVING ON
LISTEN TO YOUR HEART, YOUR HEART IS NEVER WRONG
ALWAYS FACE THE TRUTH, YOUR HEART WON’T LEAD YOU ON

VERSE 2
THOUGH TIME HAS PASSED, NOTHING HAS CHANGED
HERE IN MY HEART I STILL LOVE HER THE SAME
AND PEOPLE IF I HAD ONE WISH, THAT ONE WISH WOULD BE
THAT SHE’D ACCEPT MY APOLOGY AND COME HOME TO BE WITH ME

CHORUS
I THOUGHTBALL THE FEELING WARE GONE
CAUSE MY LIFE WAS STILL MOVING ON
LISTEN TO YOUR HEART, YOUR HEART IS NEVER WRONG
ALWAYS FACE THE TRUTH, YOUR HEART WON’T LEAD YOU ON
Track Name: Keep Pushin' On
KEEP PUSHIN ON

VERSE 1
CAN’T NOBODY HUSH ME, THE WAY I FEEL TODAY
I’M STILL GONNA SAY WHAT I GOTTA SAY
I DON'T NEED NO ENEMIES WITH FRIEND LIKE THESE TODAY
I’M BETTER OFF BY MYSELF ANYWAY
I’VE LEARNED TO DEPEND ON GOD AND NOT ON MAN
MAN WILL ALWAYS LET ME DOWN EVERY CHANCE HE CAN
I HOLD ON TO MY FAITH, IN TAKE THE TIME TO PRAY
CAUSE I’VE BEEN TRAPPED BY EVIL MEN AND THEIR EVIL WAYS.

CHORUS
THEY’RE GONNA TALK, SAY WAY WHAT THEY WANNA SAY
REMAIN TRUE YOURSELF AND IN THE END YOU’LL BE HAPPIER THAT WAY
I WOULDN’T SHARE WITH YOU SOMETHING THAT I HAVEN’T GONE THROUGH
AND I’M STILL GONNA KEEP PUSHIN’ ON.

VERSE 2
THEY TRIED TO DECIEVE ME TO GET THE THINGS THEY WANTED
AND AT ONE TIME, MY SOUL COULD’VE BEEN BOUGHT
I DIDN'T HAVE THE EDUCATION SO IT HAPPENED TO ME ONCE BEFORE
NOW WHAT THEY FAILED TO REALIZE ID BY THEIR OWN KIND I WAS TAUGHT.
I LEARNED YOU GOT TO GO THROUGH SOME THINGS TO GET SOMEWHERE
AND IT IF COMES TOO EASLIY YOU’RE GONNA BE ALONE OUT THERE
SO HAVE A LOT OF PATIENCE, ALL GOOD THINGS COME IN TIME
SO GET YOUR HONESTLY AND LIVE WITH PEACE OF MIND

CHORUS
REMEMBER, THEY’RE GONNA TALK, SAY WAY WHAT THEY WANNA SAY
REMAIN TRUE YOURSELF AND IN THE END YOU’LL BE HAPPIER THAT WAY
I WOULDN’T SHARE WITH YOU SOMETHING THAT I HAVEN’T GONE THROUGH
AND I’M STILL GONNA KEEP PUSHIN’ ON.

BRIDGE
IT'S WRITTEN IN BLACN AND WHITE THAT THE EVIL MAN IS DOOMED BY HIS OWN SINS
AND WHILE HE’S PLOTTING HIS EVIL, HE DOESN'T REALIZE HE’S DOING HIMSELF IN
(NOW) WHAT’S IN THE DARK MUST COME TO THE LIGHT
AND ONCE EVIL’S BEEN REVEALED YOU’LL SEE ALL YOUR FRIENDS IN THE REAL

CHORUS
AND THEY’RE GONNA TALK, SAY WAY WHAT THEY WANNA SAY
REMAIN TRUE YOURSELF AND IN THE END YOU’LL BE HAPPIER THAT WAY
I WOULDN’T SHARE WITH YOU SOMETHING THAT I HAVEN’T GONE THROUGH
AND I’M STILL GONNA KEEP PUSHIN’ ON.
Track Name: Some Other Time
SOME OTHER TIME

WHERE HAS THE TIME ALL GONE TO?
HAVEN'T DONE HALF THE THINGS WE WANT TO
OH WELL, WE’LL CATCH UP SOME OTHER TIME

THIS DAY WAS JUST A TOKEN
TOO MANY WORDS ARE STILL UNSPOKEN
OH WELL, WE’LL HAVE TO CATCH UP SOME OTHER TIME

JUST WHEN THE FUN WAS STARTING COMES THE TIME FOR PARTING
SO LET’S BE GLAD FOR WHAT WE HEAD AND WHAT’S TO COME

THERE’S SO MUCH MORE EMBRACING
STILL TO BE DONE BUT TIME IS RACING
OH WELL, WE’LL CATCH UP SOME OTHER TIME

THERE’S SO MUCH MORE EMBRACING
STILL TO BE DONE BUT TIME IS RACING
OH WELL, WE’LL CATCH UP SOME OTHER TIME
