Lyrics

In a Land

Written By: Charlie-Rose MacLennan

In a land, near bright blue sea.
Lived me, and a cup of tea.
I was never in a hurry.
No way in a worry.
Oh yes in a flurry.
In a land, near bright blue sea.
Lived me, and a cup of tea.

Flowers Growing
Water Flowing
No one knowing
It’s a land for me (Repeat)

In a land where flowers grow
No space, for feeling low
I could dance around so freely
I’d be free, to just be me-ee
Then I would feel so happy
In a land where flowers grow
Good times would move so slow

Flowers Growing
Water Flowing
No one knowing
It’s a land for me

In a land all full of sun
I’d be always having fun
All things will glow like gold
And no-one would feel the cold
With my friend near me to hold
In a land, full of sun’s shine
I’d be always feeling fine

Its my dream

Written By: Charlie-Rose MacLennan

In my Dreams – Charlie-Rose 2008
Verse 1
In my dreams when fast asleep
I think of pets and birds to keep
But when I ask my mum says ‘No’
So in my dreams up high I go
I dream I am a bird so free
With silver wings and filled with glee - glee
Chorus
Way, Way, Way up high - I am
Looking down on all the people
Sun is shining down on me
Up in the sky so free - free
Verse 2
Birds flying in the sky
They are flying way up high
I can’t imagine that they weep
Only songs do their hearts keep
They’ve only got kind words to say
It’s a lovely day for birds to play
They fly so fast, so high they go
They haven’t got time for Woe, woe, woe
Chorus
Way, Way, Way up high - I am
Looking down on all the people
Way, Way, Way up high - I am – In the Sky
Verse 3
When you’re feeling always glad
It’s hard to feel sad
Because they always fly so high
They can’t go, down and feel low.
It’s a lovely sight to see
Those birds are singing to you and me
Sun is shining down on me
I fly so high in the sky.
Chorus
Way, Way, Way up high - I am
Looking down on all the people
Sun is shining down on me
Up in the sky so free - free

with a baby pouch upon their tummies

God is Everything
by Charlie-Rose 06

VERSE 1
Everything is God’s
Because he made it
So it’s his
Everything, Everything
Flowers, Heaven, Roses
They are all his
Everything, Everything
He made it all
Because he loves us
Big and Small
Because he loves us
He just went ‘ding!’
And it all came a-long
Long, long, long time ago.

CHORUS
So God is everything, Everything, everything
God is Everything, Everything is God (s)
Yes God is everything, Everything, everything
God is Everything, Everything is God (s)

VERSE 2
God made all things,
Because he’s power-ful
Night and day
Everything, everything
He makes the world go around
The day has sun,
The night has moonlight and,
it’s his plan
To stay with us forever more.
And it’s his plan
To stay with us forever more.

CHORUS (repeat with harmonies)
So God is everything, Everything, everything
God is Everything, Everything is God (s)
Yes God is everything, Everything, everything
God is Everything, Everything is God (s)

Sleepy Time Lullaby

Written By: Charlie-Rose macLennan

“ Lullaby “

Baby head, go to bed
Sleepy time right now
So close your eyes now
Yes time to sleep right now

Time to rest your sleepy head
Time for babies to go to bed
Sleepy time right now
So close your eyes now

Baby sweet, with tiny feet
When you awake, your dreams you’ll keep
You’ll have a nice day, with friends you will play
No crying sounds from your mouth to say

Time to rest your sleepy head
Time for babies to go to bed
Sleepy time right now
So close your eyes now

When you grow up I hope you’ll be kind,
And seek out sad people so help they can find.
You will be happy, with not many tears.
And make it so no-one gets hurt or has fears.

Time to rest your sleepy head
Time for babies to go to bed
Sleepy time right now
So close your eyes now

I hope you’ll be able to visit great places,
And see the world’s lovely different faces.
A happy life, I’ll know that you’ll live
And all that you have you’ll generously give

So Baby head, go to bed
Sleepy time right now
So close your eyes now
(Yes time to sleep right now)

I don't mind

Written By: Charlie-Rose MacLennan

I Don’t mind
Verse 1
When I look in a mirror what do I see.
Me! But then I think, is it really me.
Are people telling the truth that it is really you?
That’s something to consider –
I don’t know if they do !
Chorus
I don’t mind if white is snow
I don’t mind if flowers grow
I don’t mind, I don’t mind, I don’t mi-i-i-nd
(repeat)
Verse 2
You might look pretty and you think you look ugly – how are you to know
If a mirror tells the truth, if it’s really so.
To the image on the glass - Do you feel any real connection?
Even if you actually see the your own body’s reflection
Is it really you? No one knows for sure anyway ......
Chorus
I don’t mind if the world is black
I don’t mind if blue is green
I don’t mind, I don’t mind, I don’t mi-i-i-nd
(repeat)
Verse 3
Has it got your feelings, your love, the things you’d like to say
It only shows your outside view however hard you stare
It doesn’t show the real you – but maybe you don’t care
The mirror doesn’t show your mind or spirit, what’s inside to find.
Do you think that way sometimes –or do you even mind?
Chorus
If there’s a ghost up there, I don’t mind, I say – I don’t mind
If I’m really scared, I say – I don’t mind, I say I don’t mind
If I’m really scared, I say – I don’t mind, I don’t mind
If there’s a ghost up there, I don’t mind, I say – I don’t mind
