Keep the faith

Choose, Don't lose
Refuse abuse
What use are you to your life
If you don't stand up
For your right
And if you can't see
Where you stand
You won't see to understand

Cho: Why don't you stand up
Why can't you man up
Why don't you keep the faith ?
It's not too late
Don't give up

mmmm mmm
Rid the guns
Keep the peace
Start your conscience
Help to stop all violence
Live your life with confidence
Exercise some patience
And maybe to your world
You'll help to make a difference

mmmm mm mmm


Instrumental solo:

Spoken Let our experiences open our eyes to see
That we must be united before we can be free
And if you can't see where you stand
You won't see to understand
Cause when we know not we represent
How could we ever be confident?

Repeat Cho;

Why don't you keep the faith
It's not too late, don't give
Why don't you keep the faith
It's not too late
Don't give up

[Lyrics]


Love me anytime

If the sun or moon could tell
How much I mean you well
By the sun and moon, I'd swear
You're all I need my dear
The sun and moon may whisper
But my heart cries out strong
The sun and moon may differ
But you and I are one

Cho: Love me, in the morning time
And In the evening too
Love me anytime
Autumn, spring, and summertime
Winter too is fine
Love me anytime

If you're sad, or if you're
feeling happy
Baby don't you worry
You're always my honey
I'll never leave you lonely

Cho;

Instrumental solo

Spoken: If the sun or moon could tell
How much I mean you well
By the sun and moon, I'd swear
You're all I need my dear
The sun and moon may whisper
But my heart cries out strong
The sun and moon may differ
But you and I are one

Repeat Cho:

[Lyrics]


Only a matter of time

Don't wait for better
Work hard for it
Cause a waiting man
might stay the same
But a trying man
Can cause a change

It's only a matter of time
only a matter of time
The sun will shine through
Oh yes your dreams will come true
I said it's only a matter of time
(Lord) Don't go losing your mind
The will shine right through and true
Oh yes, your dreams will come true

Never lose faith
Always keep your head up high
It's never too late for a change
so always try and try
Forgive me for thinking light
Even when the world is dark
The sun will shine through
Oh yes your dreams will come true.

Repeat Chorus

solo instrumental
Spoken words: Let's treat each other
With love, respect, and dignity
Cause we will never find true answers
unless we seek them with honesty
And it's omly together
That we can come together
So let's work for a change
To make our world much better

[Lyrics]


Sweet Love Broke My Heart

Love was good,
Going good
Loving each other
Like we like we know we should
But then the cool wind
Change its course
And now love is not like before (O no )
I said love is never the same
Cho
I could feel the change
Coming slow
But never would I let go
So I kept holding on
Why would love treat me wrong (so wrong)
I could never understand
When our world drifted apart
That’s when sweet love broke my heart
When the road changed it’s path
That’s when the load hit me hard

Like a sailor stranded at sea
I wish love would rescue me
Oh darling, would you please
Come back to me
Cause only you can set me free
Oh darling
I love you endlessly

[Lyrics]


The girl I love, loves someone else

Oh , my life is falling apart
I can't believe
that you broke my heart
I hope someday you'll
Prove my love real
I thought it was forever
For you and me

Cho:

I don't know why I keep hurting myself
Cause the girl I love, loves someone else
Baby, please come back to me
My love for you will always be
Why oh why would you do this to me
I'm prisoner of love and will never be free
I don't know why I keep hurting myself
Cause the girl I love, loves someone else
I don't know why I keep hurting myself
Cause the girl I love, just up and left

What did I do wrong
I gave her my all
But it seems my all
Was nothing to her
Told me that she
Loves someone else
Oh my love
You made me cry

Repeat cho:

I'm so scared
to start all over again
I will never survive
this hurting pain
Baby,
Please consider me
My nights are empty
I just can't sleep

Instrumental solo

I don't know why I keep hurting myself
Cause the girl I love, loves someone else
I don't know why I keep hurting myself
When the girl I love just up and left.
