Broken

Broken
Carolyn McCormack

I come to you broken, I’m down on my knees
Jesus please heal me, as I bow my head down
I´m not askin´, I´m hopin´
From deep in my heart
With your hand on my shoulder
To guide my lost soul

I wanna be where there’s heaven on earth
Please help me find peace
Take me into your heavenly arms
Take me to that place

I come to you broken, unable to stand
The miseries of this life, play games with my mind
I’m askin´ for your heavenly help
To be a better child
You´ll be proud of me
And I´ll hold my head high

I wanna be where there’s heaven on earth
Please help me find peace
Take me into your heavenly arms
Take me to that place

I come to you broken, but I see your light
Shinin´ around me, you’ll make everything right
Come and surround me with your love and your heart
And I will stand tall and strong
Walk out of the dark

I wanna be where there’s heaven on earth
Please help me find peace
Take me into your heavenly arms
Take me to that place



[Lyrics]


I´m a Cool Cat!

OK all you little cool cats, let´s do some singing!

I´m a cool cat!
I know where it´s at
I´m a linx with a minx
I´m a tiger with a tail
I´m a big ole lion
With a mane for its hair
I´m a cool cat
I know where it´s at

(Children dance around dressed in the mentioned animal costumes)

Know which one you are?
Are you the linx? The glamour linx with the full mink?
Or are you the big lion?

I´m a cool cat
I know where it´s at
I´m a leopard with a heart
And the cougars my friend
I´m a calico cat
And I know all of the trends
I´m a cool cat
I know where it´s at!

(Children dance around dressed in the mentioned animal costumes)

Which one are you?
Are you the leopard with a heart?
Or are you a calico cat
Who knows all of the trends?
Whoever you are, you are a very cool cat!
Wooh!

I´m My Own Best Friend

I´m My Own Best Friend
Carolyn McCormack

Alright everybody, just listen up… you gotta be your own best friend…

I was sittin' here nursin' a beer
I raised my glass in cheer
To better days ahead
I won't be better off dead
I was only jokin, but I need some strokin’
When it hit me!

I’m my own best friend
And I’ll be here to the end
I can tell myself I rock
I can talk the talk
At least I know I mean it
I got my own two lips
To give myself a little kiss muah!
And God knows I need it

I put on a happy song
Dancin´ in my favourite thong
Without a care in the world
I'm a brand new girl
I was smilin’ away
On a sunny day
When it hit me!

I'm my own best friend
And I'll be here to the end
I can tell myself I rock
I can talk the talk
At least I know I mean it

I got my own two lips
To give myself a little kiss, Mmm
And God knows I need it
But I kinda like yours
Me, myself and I, kiss kiss
You best be leavin´ us alone
Me, myself and I, Mmm
Just havin' some fun

I’m my own best friend
I’ll be here to the end
I’ll pat myself on the back
And I'll kick my own ass
When I need to be tough
Who needs someone to say
“You’re gonna be OK”
When the goin' gets rough

I got my own two lips
To give myself a little kiss
I can tell myself I rock
I can talk the talk
At least I know I mean it
I don't need someone to say
“You're gonna be OK”
I don't need it
No no no, I don´t need it
Cuz I'll be here til the end
Yeah!

Time 4 Flight

Time 4 Flight
Carolyn McCormack

Time has a way of healing
Even the most bleeding hearts
And time knows which way the wind blows
Time is on your side

Spread your wings 4 flight
In your new found freedom
Be all that you can be
In your new world, your kingdom
And save a seat for time – you’re gonna need him
There’ll be times you’re gonna need time to think
And time will always be by your side

The clock keeps on ticking
The hands gently moving you along
Pushing and pushing til you feel strong
Time is on your side

Spread your wings 4 flight
In your new found freedom
Be all that you can be
In your new world, your kingdom
And save a seat for time – you’ll need him
There’ll be times you’re gonna need time to think
And time will be by your side


Spread your wings 4 flight
In your new found freedom
Be all that you can be
In your new world, your kingdom
And save a seat for time – you’ll need him
There’ll be times you’re gonna need time to think
And time will be by your side.

Biography:

Carolyn McCormack a diversified Canadian singer/songwriter.

Born in Hamilton Ontario, Canada, Carolyn is the 4th of 6 children. The family later moved to Dunchurch, which is a small village northeast of Parry Sound, Ontario. She was introduced to music early in her life. Her father, John McCormack and his brothers were accomplished musicians originally from Prince Edward Island. They played throughout Ontario and Eastern Canada, recorded albums, performed with the likes of Don Messer, Marie Bottrell, as well as performing on television and in Nashville.

As a young child, Carolyn began accompanying her father on the piano and vocally. She started writing songs at the age of 14 and sang at schools, community events, and with her family.

Although her father played traditional "east coast" and country music, Carolyn adopted her own style and sound, which incorporates country with blues, pop and international influences.

After working with several bands, she realized that she preferred writing, composing, and performing her own work.

In 2001, she met an artist at a Songwriter's event in Toronto Canada, and a year later he recorded one of Carolyn's songs with his Nigerian band, Beautiful Nubia (in 2000 he was nominated in the "Best Artist from West Africa" category, and in 2001 he and his band were nominated again at the prestigious Kora All-Africa Music Awards in South Africa). An associate had heard the recording and it was later included on a CD of various artists called "Eclectic Sounds".

She has also worked with Walter Sobczak (formerly the bassist from the 80's pre-alternative band "The Sturm Group"), and James Anthony (http://www.jamesanthony.ca/bio.htm). Peter Boynton (Red Rider, Zappacosta, Partland Brothers, and Burgundy Rose).

In 2003 Carolyn released her album "Livin' Dangerously" which has sold in Canada, England, the UK, Portland Oregon, and the United States.

Having performed all over Southern Ontario Carolyn has enjoyed singing, and performing in live theatre, and television commercials. She has appeared on several daytime talk shows discussing her music and promoting her songs, and has been interviewed and reviewed by local newspapers and indie music magazines.

Carolyn McCormack has been featured on cdbaby, New Music Canada, & Roots Music Canada.

In 2008, Carolyn produced a trilogy with Juno award winning producer Matt DeMatteo in Montreal Canada.

As well as a singer/songwriter, Carolyn has written 2 plays, and is currently writing a second children´s book.
