Lyrics

You

Written By: Griffin/Mugisha/Howell

did i forget to mention
I found my own direction
yes, it’s you

and by the way i’ve been meaning to tell you how I’ve been feeling
today it’s true

cause I’ve been alone, and i’ve been unknown
till the day that i met you

i just want to see you smile
i just want to be your light in the dark
how i will shine for you until you bring another day
cause i don’t want to see you cry
no matter how long it takes to dry your eyes, baby I will wait for you
until you bring another day

i promise no complication
cause we can make the transformation, yes it’s true
your beauty is inspiration, and i want to make this declaration
darling I’m with you

cause i’ve been around but i’ve never found anybody quite like you

cause i just want to see you smile
i just want to be your light in the dark
baby i will shine for you until you bring another day
cause i just want to be with you
as long as it takes to show that I am true, baby I will wait for you
until you bring another day

with your angel smile you fill this empty space
but i’ll be just fine as long as i can be with you and see your face

i just want to see you smile
and i just want to be your light in the dark
baby i will shine for you until you bring another day
cause i just want to be with you
as long as it takes to show you that I’m true, baby i will wait for you
until you bring another day

Tomorrow

Written By: Barbara Griffin, Sally Singleton

la da da da da
la da da
la da da

people wearing those clown masks
they’re smiling and crying
they’re living and dying

but all the people just wanna laugh
instead of fighting the world
and racing the race

they want to play
they want smile
they want to win
they want to feel
they want to be
everything

but i just embrace these things that i am given

breathe in an inspiration
go on out to make it happen

tomorrow when the morning comes
i'm gonna wake up
get up and show the world what you got
and you won’t know what you've been missing

so tomorrow when the morning comes
why don't you wake up
get up and show the world what you’ve got
it’s amazing how you’ll feel
it’s amazing how you feel

like a statue in the wall i don't want to stand still
i want to keep moving
it’s another smiling fake
it’s living a lie
it’s not keeping pace
you need to laugh
you need to cry
because to go through everything you have to feel
is to have lived

i try to embrace these things that i am given

my feet are moving on their own
and i’ve got no idea where i'm going!

tomorrow when the morning comes
i’m gonna wake up
get up, show the world what you’ve got
and you wont know what you’ve been missing

so tomorrow when the morning comes
why don’t you wake up
get up, show the world what you’ve got
it’s amazing how you’ll feel

all around looks new to see
but the only thing changed is me
i'm different inside
i found a new pride
anything
let it happen
if you want it enough
you can get it

i... feel... new!

tomorrow when the morning comes
i’m gonna wake up
get up, show the world what I got
and you won’t know what you’ve been missing

so tomorrow when the morning comes
i’m gonna wake up
get up and show the world what you got
and you won’t know what you’ve been missing

so tomorrow when the morning comes
get up and show the world what you’ve got
it’s amazing how you’ll feel
it’s amazing how you feel!
