Get it Together

This one’s dedicated to my regular blog friends.  You know who you are.  For the past few weeks, I think we all have been somewhat “going through something.”  I feel compelled to share this special song with you.  So, let our hearts and minds continue to heal.  Peace, Light and Love, Cordieb. 

One shot to your heart without breaking your skin
No one has the power to hurt you like your kin
Kept it inside, didn’t tell no one else
Didn’t even wanna admit it to yourself
And now your chest burns and your back aches
From 15 years of holding the pain
And now you only have yourself to blame
If you continue to live this way

[Chorus:]
Get it together
You wanna heal your body?
Get it together
You have to heal your heart
Whatsoever you sow you will reap
Get it together

You can fly fly

Dark future ahead of me
That’s what they said
I’d be starving if I ate all the lies they fed
Cause I’ve been redeemed from your anguish and pain
A miracle child I’m floating on a cloud
Cause the words that come from your mouth
You’re the first to hear
Speak words of beauty and you will be there
No matter what anybody says
What matters most is what you think of yourself

[Chorus]

The choice is yours
No matter what it is
To choose life is to choose to forgive
You don’t have to try
or hurt him and break his pride
Just shake that weight off
And you’ll be ready to fly

One shot to your heart without breaking your skin
No one has the power to hurt you like your friends
Thought it would never change but as time moved on
That ugly duckling grew up to be a swan
And now your chest burns and your back aches
Because now the years are showing up on your face
But you’ll never be happy
And you’ll never be whole
Until you see the beauty in growing old
[Chorus]
[chorus]
you can fly fly fly fly…
you can live or you can die
you know that life is a choice you make
you can give or you can take

you can fly fly fly fly
you can fly fly fly fly…

Better People – India Arie

Yeah! Yeah Yeah!

I wish there was a video game
to teach you your ancestors name
I wish there was a phone number

like 1-800-Save-Your-Brother
I’m thankful for the radio station
Not afraid to put the truth in rotation

there are skirts of information
That you can only get in conversation with…

Young People, who talk to
Old People, it would make us
Better People, all around…
(Yes it would)

And if Old People would talk to
Young People, it would make us
Better People, all around….
(Yes it would)

We went from radio to TV
Now we’re going from LP to CD
Don’t be afraid

To try something new
I can help you with the brand new technology
Help me with the age old philosophy
Together there’s so much we can do with:

Young People, who talk to
Old People, it would make us
Better People, all around…

And if Old People would talk to
Young People, it would make us
Better People, all around….

They say that every
Generation gets worse
Whether if your generous or no purse

These problems tend to strive off the sky (yeah)
Listen to Mahatma Ghandi’s words
Be the change you want to see in the world
Start with yourself and healing will multiply
AAAAAAH, that’s what happens When..

Young People, who talk to
Old People, it would make us
Better People, all around…

If Old People would talk to
Young People, it would…..
Better People, all around….

If black people
Would talk to white people
It would make us
Better People
All Around….

If Republican people would
Talk to Democratic people
It would make us diplomatic people
[laugh] All Around…..

Nature, India Arie

Remembering the 70’s – post millinium style!

 I’ve had this song on my mind all morning; so I thought I’d share Berget Lews’ version (she can sing!) with you today.  Have a great Friday! 

Peace!

I’d Like To Teach the World To Sing
(In Perfect Harmony)

I’d like to build the world a home
And furnish it with love
Grow apple trees and honey bees and snow-white turtle doves

I’d like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony
I’d like to hold it in my arms and keep it company
I’d like to see the world for once
All standing hand in hand
And hear them echo through the hills “Ah, peace throughout the land”

(That’s the song I hear)
I’d like to teach the world to sing (that the world sings today)
In perfect harmony

I’d like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony

Id like to build the world a home
And furnish it with love
Grow apple trees and honey bees and snow-white turtle doves

I’d like to build the world a home
And furnish it with love
Grow apple trees and honey bees
And snow-white turtle doves

Chorus:
I’d like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony
I’d like to hold it in my arms
And keep it company
(That’s the song I hear)
I’d like to see the world for once
(Let the world sing today)
All standing hand in hand
And hear them echo through the hills
For peace throughout the land
That’s the song I hear
(That’s the song I hear)
Let the world sing today
(Let the whole wide world keep singing)
A song of peace that echoes on
And never goes away

Put your hand in my hand
Let’s begin today
Put your hand in my hand
Help me find a way
