Lyrics

Lightning Strikes

Written By: Shina Rae

Lightning Strikes once then twice
twice then once more...
3 then 4, 4 then 5, I'm still alive
Oh oh Oh....
I thought that it was a rare occurance to see lightning strike twice
It jus' kept comin', so I went runnin', how I'm still alive?
I don't know....
I thought that once you got hit, thats it then it's over, hold your place your fine
No one had warned me, told me the story, fell for it hook and line
Here I go..... I don't know
Why I've been sent on an impossible mission I don't know if I can end
I'm taking turns that concern me yearning for safety lately I've been
Lost in emotion, don't know the quotent, won't it be fun to see?
How this turns out, up in the clouds, someones aiming at me
Here they go......

Here they go......

Threefold

Written By: Shina Rae

Don't mistake some kindness for weakness
Silence doesn't mean it's not seen
The wind comes and changes the season
Your action the cause of your reason
I believe in Three Fold so be it
Your action the cause of your reason

To live the life kind, speak of the mind
Ignore innundation, work to stay patient
It's a constant test
To precede or pause our action our cause
Expand to next level, got to stay mellow
Know that I am blessed

I believe in Three Fold so be it
Your action the cause of your reason

When given opinion make a decision
How to react, a verbal attack
Don't get your message heard
When spoken or written, thought is stronger than
Sword that is carried, many are buried
The wise will use their words

Don't mistake some kindness for weakness
Silence doesn't mean it's not seen
The wind comes and changes the season
Your action the cause of your reason
I believe in Three Fold so be it
Your action the cause of your reason

Listen isn't it time to listen
Look you need to take a good look
Decide to make a decision
Strength inside that don't get shook.
