Lyrics

Should I Fly?

Written By: Daddy M-Cross Achinivu,msp

SHOULD I FLY?

Getting my jacket to put on
Finding a miser who looks on
Dipping my hands into my box
Living in darkness cannot see
This is the night for those without light.

Chorus
Oh Dark night
Dark night of my night
Day light of my day .
Should I fly away?


I thought I couldn't see
The day-light of my life
I found I couldn’t fight
The dark-night of my night
It was a lonely night
Yet am not alone

Here’s the trouble
The night seems so troubled
I have a dream that this night will show a beam
But it looks so cozy, so chilly, so charming
I see paradoxes invading my boxes
I need to fly away from forgotten forces
Am trying to get away, but hearing many voices
Am trying to hide away, but in my life is not a way
Jesus holds the way – I see his only way.
I look upon his way
I see I cannot turn away
He’s alone on a loan
Yet he gives his life alone.

My life is dying out
But am still crying out
I keep speaking out
No one hears me out
I try to run about
But I meet a round about
I try to shout aloud
They say is not allowed
It seems am just alone
The world is not my own
Someone knows my phone
He hears my ringing tone
Deep in my dream
I see my film
Encoded in a beam
am dying with my dreams
Should I fly to die?
Should I fly away?
Like the little butterfly
I fly away
With Jesus the way
I fly away.
With Jesus the life
I fly to life
Should I fly away
Should I fly…
A – Way…

Misery to mystery
My Poverty from penury
I am moving through to destiny
Cos I know that mine is victory.

Chorus:
But my God gives the victory
My God frees from penury
He my God rules my destiny
He will free me from my misery.

O God free me from my misery
My God-you rule my destiny

One Step Forward

Written By: Daddy M-Cross Achinivu,msp

ONE STEP FORWARD

Chorus1
One step forward
Never one backward
One step forward
I’ll move onward
One step forward
Never one backward
One step forward
Home-ward, God-ward.

Early in the morning
Satan comes with humming
At noon he sighing
Coming, talking, moving, wondering
Why i should hang-on
Fasting till is morning
Mourning with mourners
Till my mind meet my morrow

Chorus2:
Till my mind meet my morrow
I’ll mind all my morrow
Until my mind meet my morrow
I’ll mind all my morrow.

Until my mind meet my morrow
One step forward
Never one back-ward.

Leaving this place

We are leaving this place
Just as we came
We are leaving this place.
A day is coming,
When we shall meet again.
Where shall you be?
Where shall I be?

We are leaving this place
Oh God Guide us
Till then.
Leaving this place
Oh God guide us
Till then.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Written By: Christian Achinivu

Happy Birthday: by Christian Achinivu

Everything about this day is ending in aye aye
Birthday, good day, Friday and holiday
I wish I could have an airplay on this very day
Please tell Mr. DJ. This day to give me on airplay
I feel I hear creation say
As I look at the flowers today

Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
This is your day

When evening comes they say:
“They say is a good soiree”
Some come with gifts of cake
Of cake and bread
Some they brought from Bombay
Some they bought on ebay
Just to celebrate this day
My day which has come again
Hence to me they say this day,
Happy birthday! Happy birthday! Happy birthday!
I wish I was in L.A.
Thinking you were in J.F.K.
Looking up to take off
To come and meet my birthday
To celebrate this one day
That I wish can only be replayed
When everyone says to me
Happy.

Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
This is your day.

Many send me greeting cards
That I may remember the past
They talk about how good I have been
And no body talks about my bad
Deep in my dreams yesterday
I saw my films where they were replayed
About my birthdays the other years
The thoughts of which never passed away.

Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
This is your day

Mama tells me this day
To reflect about the only way
The only way to win the race
Is to do the best to trace my place
In a society filled with iniquity
The beauty of my soul
Is the soul of my beauty
And this is where I go from here
When they say to me

Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
This is your day.

The Aim Has Not Changed

Written By: Christian Achinivu

THE AIM HAS NOT CHANGED

The aim has not changed
The aim has not changed
Only the method of doing
What we do has changed
The aim has not changed

I saw a man the other day
And I ask him, why are you changing what you doing
The people might be confused about your new doings
And he says to me, don’t border about this new way
The aim has not changed – Mnn
Only the method doing what we do has changed
The aim has not changed – mnn

The government threw a peppermint
For those living in old apartments
Moving to new apartments
They find no department to care for their movement
We think this government is changing
But it still claims to aim at no change of the aim
Everywhere the game is still the same, the political way.
They say only the method,
The method, the method of doing what we do has changed,
But the aim has not changed.

In the Church many are afraid
That the aim of preaching is changing
Salvation, is still the same aim.
To make everyone love the truth
And embrace the truth they love.
As the love of the truth is the truth of the love.
We love to proclaim the aim that has not changed
But the method we use can change to benefit
The end that fits the aim - mnn

Wake Up

WAKE UP

Come on everybody,
Wake up
It’s time to wake up
This is another new morning
Wake up, wake up
Wake up my neighbours
Wake up.

Every morning when I wake up
I still hear the sound of my brother sleeping
I move and touch my brother
Brother wake up, is time to do something
Wake up, wake up, wake up
Wake up, wake up
All my neighbours this is time to say

Good morning, good morning, good morning
Good morning, good morning, good morning
Good morning, good morning, good morning
Good morning.

No one can make the mountain move
While sleeping around
No one can make the mountain shake
By sleeping around
Can you hear the brother snoring
I hear my sister snoring
Is time to go to work
Is time to go, to go to work
The people are going to work now
Ooh woo woo – time to go to work
Wake up, wake up
Uh uh uh uh

Good morning, good morning, good morning
Good morning, good morning, good morning
Good morning, good morning, good morning
Good morning,

Wake up

Good morning, good morning, good morning,
Good morning, good morning, good morning,
good morning, good morning, good morning,

My Advice to my Son

Written By: Christian Achinivu

MY ADVICE

One love bring us together.

This was my advice to my son
When he taught it was fun to fight with someone who had no one.

One love bring us together, one love.
“Daddy one had loved me,” he said
“When two were together and three heard a thriller sound,
And I decided to be their killer man.”

One had loved me when two were together and three heard thriller.
.
To fight is nobody’s pride.
Take what is mine and make it to be fine while there is time.
To fight is nobody’s pride.
This song is my advice for those who think they like to fight when they see somebody who got no body.
Watch out for what is out, look into what is in.
Inner-ways or outer-ways, other-wise or neither-wise,
You got to be wise to make life suffice. One love.

Take my advice that you may survive.
In a life too short to die and too long to hide.
Someone will find you (x2).
Even when no one is beside you.
Keep together this is no thriller.

No vice is nice for the wise
Old game brings the lame fame.
Famous game makes the lame old.
Who makes hays while the sun shines,
Let him shine while the hay is made. One love bring us together.

Choose to be nobody when (all) everybody chooses to be somebody.
Fight with nobody to prove you are somebody.
I am for you when you never cease to be you.
Be for me ‘cos I never cease to be me.
That’s why am truly me.

Everybody Everybody
One love bring us together.

This your thriller
For you were together when one had loved you.
This is why I say(x2)
One wa lo mi o (meaning=come to me and embrace me).
One wa lo mi o
Two together
Three like trailer

One wa lo mi o
One wa lo mi o
Two together- two together.

One wa lo mi o

None is nobody.

While shepherds watched

Written By: Christian Achinivu

While Shepherds watched

While shepherds watched
Their flocks by night
All seated on the ground
The angel of the Lord came down
And his glory shone around

Why O Why?
Oh! Why o why?
Oh! Why o why stay far away?
Don’t stay far away, come to Him.

"Fear not," he said,
For mighty dread
Had seized their troubled minds
"Glad tidings of great joy I bring
To you and all mankind."

"To you in David's
Town this day
Is born of David's line
A Savior who is Christ the Lord
And this shall be the sign."
"You will find a little Babe
wrapped in a cloth
And laid in a manger."
Hossana (4x)

Why O Why?
Oh! Why o why?
Oh! Why o why stay far away?
Don’t stay far away, come to Him.

Thus spoke the angel,
And then appeared a shining throng
Of angels praising God,
This is the way they
addressed their joyful song
Hossana hosanna in the highest.
Hossana (4x)
Hossana to the king.
Hossana in the highest.

Why O Why?
Oh! Why o why?
Oh! Why o why stay far away?
Don’t stay far away, come to Him.

Hossana (3x).

Lead thou me on

Written By: Christian Achinivu & John H. Newman

LEAD THOU ME ON (from Public domain hymn “Lead kindly light”)
Words by Cardinal John Henry Newman (1801–1890)
Song Composed, restructured/arranged, retitled and given chorus by Christian Achinivu
Chorus:
Lead thou me on
Lead thou me on
Lead thou me on
Lead thou me on

Lead, kindly light, amid the encircling gloom,
Lead thou me on;
The night is dark, and I am far from home,
Lead thou me on.
Keep thou my feet; I do not ask to see
The distant scene; one step enough for me.

Lead thou me on
Lead thou me on
Lead thou me on
Lead thou me on

I was not ever thus nor prayed that thou
Shouldst lead me on;
I loved to choose and see my path; but now
Lead thou me on.
I loved the garish day, and, spite of fears,
Pride ruled my will; remember not past years.

Lead thou me on
Lead thou me on
Lead thou me on
Lead thou me on

So long thy power hath blest me, and sure it still
Will lead me on
O’er moor and fen, o’er crag and torrent till
The night is gone,
And with the morn those angels faces smile,
Which I have loved long since and lost a while.

Chorus:
Lead thou me on
Lead thou me on
Lead thou me on
Lead thou me on

Woman of the night

Written By: Christian Achinivu

WOMAN OF THE NIGHT

She is like a night that invites the dark
She is like a dream that will never come true
Your light is her target in her fight
In the dark night of your night

Chorus:
Oh dark night – dark night of my night.
Oh Day light, day light of my day
You the woman of my night
Should I fly away?

She has made paradox invade my box
When I need to fly away I got no force
I try to run away I see many ways
I try to hide away she surrounds my way

Chorus.

As I speak to you my life is dying out
I keep speaking out
No one hears me out
I try to run about
I meet roundabouts
I try to shout aloud
They say is not allowed
It seems am just alone
The world is not my own.
If someone knows my phone
Let that someone pick my call
Does anyone hear my ringing tone?
Let him pick my call right now.
Can the police leave their station?
I want them find my caption
Deep in my dreams yesterday
I saw my films encoded in a beam
As am dying with my dreams
Should I fly away?
Like the little little little butterfly?
Should I fly far away?
Fly away? Should I fly away?
You the woman of the night
Should I fly away?

Chorus

Finally I heard a voice say
Get out of the way
It’s my time to fight
Am gonna beat this woman of the night
So that I can give you time to shine.
Welcome to my light
Welcome to my world.

This night is over now
This night is over now
Good morning to a new day
Good morning to a new day

Am gonna shine now
You gonna shine now
We‘re gonna shine now
Shine shine shine

This night is over now
This night is over now
This night is over now.
This night is over now.

Go at it

Written By: Christian Achinivu

GO AT IT

Up and down
Every journey begins with a step
One by one
We can make it sound go so high
Look up and down
See the going getting tough from the top

Chorus:
Go at it, believing in it, and you’ll make it.
Just go just go
Guys go where the guys go
Girls go where the girls go
Guys and girls can we go now?

First thing get up
Second thing look up
Third thing move up
Cos someone is up there for you

We can go to the one by many
We can go to the many by one

Chorus

Daily I wonder
What a bundle of tiny disasters
Placing my feelings
In a cradle of great sinisters
Come let’s go home
Mommy and Daddy are waiting at home

Chorus

Is anything depriving you of your siesta?
Is your world like mine just full of tears?
Can your ugly cry overcome your plaguing plight?
We can go to the one by many
We can go to the one by many
We can go to the many by one.

Chorus

Bundle of shackles

Written By: Christian Achinivu

Bundles Shakles

I was in prison of my own mistakes
I was in bondage of my own bonds
I was arrested when had not rested
It was a bundle of shackles

CHORUS:
Bundles of shackles
Make me really wake up
Play me like Deco
Bend me like Beckham

When the storm is over we shall pass over
We shall have a story when we cross over
Mine shall make you believe you never say never
Until you see your people coming to discover.

Chorus

You never believe it
Until it comes to you
You never find it
Until you look for it
You never can tell until they tell you
Life is a bundle of shackles

Chorus

First thing get up
Second thing look up
Third thing move up
Cos someone is up there for you

Chorus

Weh O weh O
Weh O weh O
Weh O weh O
Life is a bundle of shackles.

Sweet saviour bless

Written By: Christian Achinivu (& from public domain lyrics)

Sweet Savior bless

Life is meaningless without godliness.
This is why the beauty of your soul is the soul of your beauty.

Sweet Savior bless us ere we go
Thy word into our minds instill
And make our lukewarm hearts to glow
With lowly love and fervent will
Through life's long day and death's dark night
Oh gentle Jesus
Gentle Jesus be our light.
Oh gentle Jesus be our light.
Alleluia, alleluia
Alleluia

Alleluia, alleluia Alleluia, alleluia.3x

The day is done, its hours have run
And Thou hast taken count of all
The scanty triumphs, grace hath won,
The broken vow, the frequent fall
Through life's long day and death's dark night
Oh gentle Jesus
Gentle Jesus be our light.
Oh gentle Jesus be our light.
Alleluia, alleluia
Alleluia

Alleluia Alleluia, alleluia alleluia.

For all we love the poor the sad,
The sinful unto thee we call.
Oh let thy mercy make us glad
Thou art our Jesus and our all
Through life's long day and death's dark night
Oh gentle Jesus
Gentle Jesus be our light.
Oh gentle Jesus be our light.
Alleluia, alleluia

Everyday is a wedding day

Written By: Christian Achinivu

Everyday is a wedding day

A la la la la la la la la la la la la !

I am a cool young man ready to marry,
Quite simple and very jovial.
Some people say am not so nice,
I have a flat face I wear blue jeans.

Tell me about you
Tell me about you.
I want you to know me
I want to know you.

Give me sometime to talk to you about myself
Give me sometime to talk to you about myself
Give me sometime to talk to you about myself
I want you to know me, I want to know you.

Chorus

My friends have said I am the biggest fool on earth.
My Mom has said I am the brightest idiot that lives.
My Dad has said I am his own wisest brother.
Tell me whom I am, am I an idiot?

Chorus

I don’t know if you can accept me the way I am.
I Know I may not the be the best person on earth
But I can be the best person I know that I am.
If you accept me, let’s go to God’s house.

Chorus

I, Bobby take you to be my lawful wedded wife
To have and to hold for better for worse,
In sickness and in health in poverty and riches
Till death do us part, I take you as you are.

Chorus

A la la la la la la la la la la la la !

Everyday is a wedding day
Everyday is a wedding day.
Because you accepted me
Everyday is a wedding day
Because you accepted me
Everyday is a wedding day
Everyday is a wedding day
Everyday is a wedding day.

Woman of the night (February 2010)

Written By: Christian Achinivu

WOMAN OF THE NIGHT

She is like a night that invites the dark
She is like a dream that will never come true
Your light is her target in her fight
In the dark night of your night

Chorus:
Oh dark night – dark night of my night.
Oh Day light, day light of my day
You the woman of my night
Should I fly away?

She has made paradox invade my box
When I need to fly away I got no force
I try to run away I see many ways
I try to hide away she surrounds my way

Chorus.

As I speak to you my life is dying out
I keep speaking out
No one hears me out
I try to run about
I meet roundabouts
I try to shout aloud
They say is not allowed
It seems am just alone
The world is not my own.
If someone knows my phone
Let that someone pick my call
Does anyone hear my ringing tone?
Let him pick my call right now.
Can the police leave their station?
I want them find my caption
Deep in my dreams yesterday
I saw my films encoded in a beam
As am dying with my dreams
Should I fly away?
Like the little little little butterfly?
Should I fly far away?
Fly away? Should I fly away?
You the woman of the night
Should I fly away?

Chorus

Finally I heard a voice say
Get out of the way
It’s my time to fight
Am gonna stop this woman of the night
So that I can give you time to shine.
Welcome to my light
Welcome to my world.

This night is over now
This night is over now
Good morning to a new day
Good morning to a new day

Am gonna shine now
You gonna shine now
We‘re gonna shine now
Shine shine shine

This night is over now
This night is over now
This night is over now.
This night is over now.
