Singing in church and later on writing and recording his own songs at a home studio, he partnered with his dad in competing at a county idol contest in 2010.

Lyrics

One of THE Kind

Written By: Spencer Kane

Pushed down, to the ground
It's like nobody cares
She's thinking to herself
Is anybody out there
Outcast, no friends
Can she make it through
Just another day alone
No one to talk to

(so whatcha gonna do?)
You could keep on walking
Leave her to herself
It's not your problem anyway
(whatcha gonna do?)
You need to level out your pride
You should be one of the kind

Everybody needs someone to talk to, talk to
Why can't it be you?
(you should be one of the kind)
Everybody needs someone to hear them, to see them, to free them
One of the kind, oh oh oh

Spotlight, so bright
He's so popular
Athlete, school star
Never insecure
He can't forget
Why she'd go away
The silent tears he cries
Like every single day

(so whatcha gonna do?)
You just keep on walking
Leave him to himself
It's not your problem anyway
(whatcha gonna do?)
You need to level out your mind
You should be one of the kind

Everybody needs someone to talk to, talk to
Why can't it be you?
(you should be one of the kind)
Everybody needs someone to hear them, to see them, to free them
One of the kind, oh oh oh

Why can't it be you? Everybody (repeat)

You should be, one of the kind
Open your heart
Open your mind
You should be, one of the kind
Open you heart

Everybody needs someone to talk to, talk to
Why can't it be you?
(you should be one of the kind)
Everybody needs someone to hear them, to see them, to free them
One of the kind, oh oh oh

Reason To Be

Written By: Spencer Kane

He's your dream guy
Don't treat you right
But you still try
Give him all you've got
But he still makes you cry

All alone
Calling me up
Feeling lost inside
Like what's the point in this life
Tell me what good am I

The day's not over
The night's not here
I'll be your shoulder
I'm always near
Come and I'll show ya
Let go of your fear

When you're looking for a reason
A reason to be
I'll show you a way
A way you can be free
Sometimes it gets hard
Like in fog you can't see
Cause we all have a reason
A reason to be

Up and down on the list
Looking for your name on the wall
And your heart beats fast
And you're all alone in the hall
The coach said no
You feel lost inside
Like you just don't matter
What good am I?
But I'm here to show ya
A reason to be

The day's not over
The night's not here
I'll be your shoulder
I'm always near
Come and I'll show ya
Let go of your fear

When you're looking for a reason
A reason to be
I'll show you a way
A way you can be free
Sometimes it gets hard
Like in fog you can't see
Cause we all have a reason
A reason to be

Hold tight, hold tight
I'm gonna love you til
It's alright, alright
Open up your eyes
I'll lead you to a better life (2x)

Chorus to end

Blue Sky

Written By: Francesca Battistelli

When you’re down and you’re out
And you don’t think you have a friend
When you’re lost in the doubt
And you can’t see what’s around the bend

Just hold on
Don’t turn around
Keep on walking
Don’t lose heart
‘Cause I am here, I am here
Wherever you are, wherever you are

(Chorus)
When the rain is falling
And there’s no silver lining
And you just can’t seem to find the light
When you need a reason
To help you keep believing
Let my love be your blue sky

Don’t you know that I know
Life can be so hard it makes you wanna give up
But don’t you know over the horizon
The sunny day you’re looking for
Is waiting right here in my love

Just hold on
Don’t turn around
Keep on walking
Don’t lose heart
‘Cause I am here, I am here
Wherever you are, wherever you are

(Chorus)

Come on come on
Don’t you be afraid
Whatever comes tomorrow
My love is here to stay

Move In The Right Direction

Written By: Spencer Kane

At the time you seemed ok
Trying to be cool, all eyes on me
Cause it seemed pretty fun for a second
Going with the flow, following the peer pressure
My compass was spinning
North, South, East, West
Trying to fit in, yeah
(Are you feeling me now, you ain't gotta follow the crowd)

When I went left, my heart said right
Feeling all around
Like a room with no light
But then He showed me the way
Dusted me off, it's like I heard him say

You say, you say, ah ah
Follow me and it'll be alright, alright
You say, you say, ah ah
Follow clouds by day and fire by night now (repeat)

Move in the right direction
Move in the right direction

I feel it now, that the fun's over
Trying to be cool caught up to me
Now I'm searching my Script (scripture) for direction
Pullin my head out the clouds, no Jetson
I found a new beginning,
Up, down, right, left
Now I got it, yeah

Back from the left, my heart stayed right
Shining on me like stadium lights
Now I got a new day,
Dusted me off, just like I heard Him say

You say, you say, ah ah
Follow me and it'll be alright, alright
You say, you say, ah ah
Follow clouds by day and fire by night now (repeat)

Move in the right direction
Move in the right direction

You say, you say, ah ah
Follow me and it'll be alright, alright
You say, you say, ah ah
Follow clouds by day and fire by night now

Tough times and I want to give in
Why try, when I'm never gonna win
So hard, I think I can't reach it
I try to understand the secret

But when I think I can't
I think it's impossible
Or say "No way, it's never gonna happen" no

I know a place,
A place that I can go
I'll find a way to let my confy (confidence) show
I'll be alright
Cause I CAN DO ALL THINGS

I go to my 4-1-3
Let me tell you bout the G-O-D
I love reppin His style
C'mon let's talk for a while
I go to my 4-1-3

I love reppin this style
C'mon let's talk for a while

Still going, I'm gonna make it through
No fear, cause I'm walkin in the truth
4-1-3, I know I'm gonna win this
So bring it on, I know that I can take this

You can never stop me, you never stop me
Imma make it to the end
And you can take me, never break me
Cause Imma make it to the end

But when I think I can't
I think it's impossible
Or say "No way, it's never gonna happen" no

I know a place,
A place that I can go
I'll find a way to let my confy (confidence) show
I'll be alright
Cause I CAN DO ALL THINGS

I go to my 4-1-3
And let me tell you bout the G-O-D
I love reppin His style

I Want That

Written By: Spencer Kane

VERSE 1:
We were chillin with our friends
When you looked my way
Then your eyes jumped back to him
Before I knew your name

Something started forming, girl
Something we bo th-knew
But I caught a little sign, girl
That he's still into you

PRE CHORUS1:
He said, she said
He's been chattin you at night
I say, Baby
He won't treat you right

Ain't-no, one-else
I'd have as my girl
You-are, the-one
Girl you are my world

CHORUS1:
Can you feel that
Something inside
You can't ignore that
Tell me right now
Are you with that
Don't know about you
But I want that, I want that

Girl tell me right now
Are you with that
I don't know about you
But I know I want that
I want that (repeat)

VERSE 2:
You think he's got something, girl
He's a player just playin games
You really can't believe him, girl
To him you're all the same

I won't ever diss you, girl
Want to make you mine
I've got a deal with my maker, girl
I'll never cross the line

PRECHORUS2:
I say, we say
Let's give this a try
They say, Maybe
He could be your guy

Ain't-no, one-else
I'd have as my girl
You-are, the-one
Girl you are my world

CHORUS2:
Can you feel that
Something inside
You can't ignore that
Tell me right now
Are you with that
Don't know about you
But I want that, I want that (repeat 1x)

Girl tell me right now
Are you with that
I don't know about you
But I want that, I want that

BRIDGE:
Stop listenin to their noise
Start listenin to your heart
Stop worryin bout what they say
Cuz, girl I'm nothin like him, Whoa

CHORUS3: (to fade)

Knowing

Written By: Spencer Kane

VERSE 1:
I may know
Why the grass is green
And the sky is blue
You don't care about that, do you?

And I may know
Why the sun goes up
And the sun goes down
But, you don't think about that, do you?

PRECHORUS 1:
But I don't really know
Why you don't like me?
And I don't really know
If you do...

CHORUS:
I got a whole lot of wondrin'
Going through my mind
When you look at me girl
Can you please just tell me why?

Seems so crazy
It's messing with my view
My head is spinnin round and round
I just want to be... to be with you

VERSE 2:

I may know
Why my heart beats fast
When I'm with you
You don't really notice, do you?

And I may know
When I close my eyes
I see your face
You don't realize that, do you?

PRECHORUS 2:

And I don't really know
What I'd do without you
Cause I don't really know
Please don't go...

CHORUS:
I got a whole lot of wondrin'
Going through my mind
Why you won't be with me girl
Let's try this one more time

Seems so crazy
It's messing with my view
My head is spinnin round and round
I just want to be... to be with you

BRIDGE:
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
You... anymore...
I don't know...

PRECHORUS 3:

And maybe I should know
Why you don't like me
I see it in your eyes
You just don't..

CHORUS:
I got no more wondrin'
Going through my mind
If you'd put your hand in my hand
Everything would be fine

It's just crazy
And not my point of view
My head is spinnin round and round
I just want to be with you

Don't Switch It Up

Written By: Spencer Kane

VERSE 1

You say he's the one
And you know for sure
Yet you change yourself
You seem insecure

You try to make it all work out
And you're listening to the crowd
You ain't gotta be that way
So listen to me when I say

PRECHORUS

What's wrong
With the way you are
You're taking things too far
(It's like I don't even know you anymore)

So girl I just wish you knew
There's nothing wrong with you

CHORUS

So don't, switch it up, switch it up (repeat)
(You ain't gotta change girl)
Cause you are who you are, and it's more than enough (repeat)

VERSE 2

You're judged by the magazines
The TV and Celebrities
Or the girls that you hang around
Always saying what you need to be

But there is something you should know
The way you think and look, don't let it go
Cause a guy with a heaven mind
Wont make you change, or make you waste your time

PRECHORUS

What's wrong
With the way you are
You're taking things too far
(I don't even recognize you anymore)

So girl I just wish you knew
There's nothing wrong with you

CHORUS

So don't, switch it up, switch it up (repeat)
(You ain't gotta change girl)
Cause you are who you are, and it's more than enough (repeat)

BRIDGE (RAP)

I never been the kind
That gave a mind
I feel good in my own skin
Matter of fact
I ain't trying to be what I'm not
I'm just sayin, I'm all real
I ain't playin pretend
Some like to switch it up and give up
But they perpetrating theyself
And in the end you only hurtin yourself
So stay true to who you are
You might as well. Stop!

CHORUS

So don't, switch it up, switch it up (repeat)
You ain't gotta change
For no one
Be who you were made to be, made to be
You ain't gotta switch it up, switch it up
You ain't gotta switch it up, no
You ain't gotta change girl...
