Biography

The current trends in my song writing are the result of my asking God to give me something positive to help me as well as our nation heal after the destruction of the World Trade Center in 2001. I was given the gift of " America is Beautiful".

Having written Rap songs more than 20 years ago that were informative regarding the conditions that have caused a great deal of the injustice in the world but never having shared the writings 2001 convinced me that I had to be a force for my beleifs and that there was no one else to do it.

My shining stars, my wife Nkenge and my children Njemile, Sharifa, Yohance , and Tor have been a beacon that has shown me that Manhood and Womanhood are the only worthy pursuits. Real Manhood and real Womanhood. Realizing that everything I do has a consequence I have pledged to try to be positive in all that I do.

Lyrics

The Best Part of Me

Written By: Sidney Vinson

Sometimes your love makes me feel
Like it’s the only thing that’s real
Everything else is just a dream
Across the sky’s not what it seems

A new day will dawn when the sun has set in the sky
I still love you girl and this evening I’d like to try
To save the love we share and to show you I still care
You were my first, my last, my only
Without you I’m just lonely

You’re the best part of me
Baby can’t you see
Your love has set me free
Baby can’t you see
The best part of me

I know sometimes I make you mad
And you wonder what we ever had
An on the days I made you cry
You even wished that I would die

The evening is here and we‘ve come much to far
To ever let love die or lose sight of our shining stars
I believe you were made for me
Can’t you see the best part of me?

Baby can't you see

You’re the best part of me
Baby can’t you see
Your love has set me free
Baby can’t you see
The best part of me

Now the night has come and gone
And I know I’m not alone
I’m glad you took the time to share
The only thing that makes me care

Morning is here can’t feel this brand new day
It must have been fate my love that made you look my way.
I feel good in your love
And so I thank God above.
I thank God for your love.

You’re the best part of me
Baby can’t you see
Your love has set me free
Baby can’t you see
The best part of me

The Best Part of Me

A new day will dawn when the sun has set in the sky
I still love you girl and this evening I’d like to try
To save the love we share and to show you I still care
You’re still my first, my last, my only
Without you I’m just lonely

You’re the best part of me
Baby can’t you see
Your love has set me free
Baby can’t you see
The best part of me

September Morn
Words and Music

by Sidney Vinson

Etched in my in my mind September morn
When planes appeared the sky was torn
I saw them hit what could I feel
Stunned and numb could this be real

As people jumped I called my wife
And watched them fall and lose their Life
I watched them fall and lose their life

Rescuers tried to save some lives
When they heard the peoples’ cries
They heard the cries.

What does one do when duty calls?
Your back’s been forced against the wall.
Dealt a blow that you can’t take
Trying to survive through all that hate.
One seldom thinks when one leaves home
What precious lives could soon be gone
How precious life How quickly gone

The world looked on and all were shocked
Twin towers falling like Blocks!
Twin towers falling like Blocks!

Heroes were trapped in the debris
Along with those they tried to free
Along with those they tried to free

The pentagon crash confirmed the fact
This was planned ruthless attack
The word spread quickly as we asked why
And reached a fourth plane in the sky

A cell Phone call revealed the plan
They’re crashing planes you might not land
Planes into buildings it’s time to stand
The passengers discussed what they were told
Then they decided it was time to go
Then one of them said, “Let’s Roll!”

What does one do when duty calls?
Your back’s been forced against the wall.
Dealt a blow that you can’t take
Trying to survive through all that hate.
One seldom thinks when one leaves home
What precious lives could soon be gone
How precious life How quickly gone

The fourth plane crashed into a field
Cause Patriots there had raised a shield
Patriots there had raised a shield.

A nation mourns when heroes fall
Who’ve stepped right up when duty called
They make us know we’re not alone
And proud to call this place our home
And proud to call this place our home.

They changed our world with a single blow
Some patriots decided they had to go
One of them said, “Let’s Roll”
Then the President said, “Let’s roll”!

Instrumental Change

Our path led to Afghanistan
Then bogged us down in dessert sands
So many miles away from home
So many souls have gone on.
Hear the blood cry from the ground
Are we lost and can’t be found?
Are we lost and can’t be found?

Everywhere danger lurks
Are these the wages for my works?
Are these the wages for my works?

What does one do when duty calls?
Your back’s been forced against the wall.
Dealt a blow that you can’t take
Trying to survive through all that hate.
One seldom thinks when one leaves home
What precious lives could soon be gone
How precious life How quickly gone

(Instrumental change)

I’m just trying to make my way
Back to my home in the USA.
To the place where I was free
Where there was light and I could see.
As I sit here all alone
I’m just trying to get back home.
I’m just trying to get back home.

Before the day turns into night
I pray to God_give me sight!

John Lennon said all we are saying
While people everywhere Keep on praying.
For our leaders to give peace a chance
Cause Warriors dare not relax their stance.
Until the peace is real for all
The danger’s there we all could fall.
The danger’s there we all could fall

Like Pharaoh’s plunge into the sea
A hardened heart won’t make us free.
A hardened heart won’t make us free.
But surely it will seal one’s fate
And blind the way till it’s too late.

What does one do when duty calls?
Your back’s been forced against the wall.
Dealt a blow that you can’t take
Trying to survive through all that hate.
One seldom thinks when one leaves home
What precious lives could soon be gone
How precious life How quickly gone

(Instrumental change)

I’m just trying to make my way
Back to my home in the USA.
To the place where I was free
Where there was light and I could see.
As I sit here all alone
I’m just trying to get back home.
I’m just trying to get back home.

Heroes are with us spirits all
They hear the trump when duty calls
They make me know I’m not alone
And one day soon I’ll be back home
And one day soon I’ll be back home.

As I sit here all alone
I’m just trying to get back home.
I’m just trying to get back home.

The Sky Is The Limit

Written By: Sidney Vinson

When they say you’re not good enough
To be what you want to be
And you’ve tried to be good enough
And still they refuse to see

Life deals a hand
That's yours to play
And with that hand you can win_no matter
What others say

You're so much more more
Than they know
So much more than you've ever_ ever
Been allowed to show

Keep your eyes fixed on the prize
Until you will realize
Beyond your former tries
And any failing ties
Are never ending skies skies
For you to rise

The sky_
Is the limit
The sky_
Is the limit
The sky_
Is the limit

Things will go wrong
When you’re a long long way from home
If you feel like giving up
What you need to do is trust

With your thoughts in the sky
Your spirit will never die
So keep your head held up high
If you fail give it one more try

Life is
Lessons learned
About what it means to be and to win
When it’s your turn
To use the gifts you’ve been given_given
Make sure you to learn

To keep your eyes fixed on the prize
until you will realize
Beyond your former tries
And any failing ties
Are never ending skies_ skies
For you to rise

The sky_
Is the limit

The sky_
Is the limit
The sky_
Is the limit

The road may be long and hard
But the first step is to start
And there are sure to be many tests
So always you’ve got to do your best

The good news and the saving grace
Is anytime you want you can change your game face
Prepare and start where you are
Set your sights high and be the brightest star

Life can
Be so much more
If you live to be free work hard to achieve
Step through the door
Into the future shining bright
Where everyday is brand new light

And The sky_
Is the limit
The sky_
Is the limit
The sky_
Is the limit

Winning is a state of mind
That’s yours to own when you’re in the grind
And when you look back you’ll see you’ve won
If you find you’re proud of the things you’ve done

When they say you’re not good enough
To be what you want to be
And you’ve tried to be good enough
And still they refuse to see

Life deals a hand
That's yours to play
And with that hand you can win_no matter
What others say

You're so much more more
Than they know
So much more than you've ever_ ever
Been allowed to show

Keep your eyes fixed on the prize
until you will realize
Beyond your former tries
And any failing ties
Are never ending skies skies
For you to rise

The sky_
Is the limit

The sky_
Is the limit

The sky_
Is the limit
