Lyrics

Hope Song

Written By: Jade Ambroze

Hope Song
Verse 1
I’ve spent so much of my time finding the best way to hide
My secrets
I bottled all of my shame closeted sorrow and pain
In the deepest
Pre-chorus 1
Part of my heart I thought that nobody knew
But You see these hurts so I’m crying to You
Chorus
And there’s a song in my heart is rising
Like the dawn of a new day hope’s shining in
And the sorrow and fear is subsiding
As I reach out to You Lord my healing begins
Verse 2
I’ve spent too much of my time in solitary confines
In the darkness
But You have turned on a light and taken fear out of night
In the deepest
Pre-chorus
Part of my heart I thought that nobody saw
But You’re breaking down barriers and I’m longing for more
Chorus
Bridge
Healing that comes from letting go
Lord let Your healing water flow

If I Have Not Loved

Written By: Jade Ambroze

If I Have Not Loved
Verse 1
I can speak in tongues of angels and of men, but then again, if I have not loved
Beauty is bereft in the words I speak, their meaning weak if I have not loved
Chorus
I can understand all mysteries and thoughts
But it’s more than what I think or what I’m taught
I can live the most amazing life, do everything I dreamed
But it means nothing if I have not loved
Verse 2
I can have faith to move mountains to the sea, what does it mean, if I have not loved
And I can gather fame and fortune on this earth, but what’s it worth, if I have not loved
Chorus
Bridge
Love believes all things, hopes all things
Love never fails
Bridge Refrain
Faith hope and love these three abide
But it is love that prevails
Chorus x 2
It means nothing if I have not loved

So I can see clearly the One that I adore

Who I Am

Written By: Jade Ambroze

Who I Am
Verse 1
When am I gonna get that I’m enough?
When am I gonna understand?
That outward beauty doesn’t grow true love
Just like roses don’t grow well in sand
Pre-chorus 1
Sometimes I feel like who I am is fading fast
But I am looking at the superficial things that won’t last
Chorus 1
‘Cause this world has its pressures
But it’s time that I took a stand
And let go of the girl I think I wanna be
And start being who I am
Verse 2
These feelings go a long way back
They fit like a second skin
And like a well worn glove on a hand
These emotions are wearing thin
Pre-chorus 2
Sometime I feel like I have so much more to prove
But if I concentrate on pleasing everyone I know I’m gonna lose
Chorus 1
Instrumental
Bridge
Leave my doubts upon the shelf, I will learn to trust myself
And by this world I will not be defined
Who I am and what I’m worth is in my heart and mind
Verse 3
What’s it gonna take until I see
That I am made in the image of God
And with His glory reflected in me
I have to know that I’m more than enough
Chorus 2
‘Cause this world has its pressures
I’ve been feeling kind of hemmed in
But I’ve been looking in the wrong direction
I need to start where You begin
I’ve been looking in the wrong direction
I need to start where You begin
I need to start where You begin

Meant to Fly

Written By: Jade Ambroze

Meant to Fly
Verse 1
Live each second like it counts
And don’t surrender to your fears
‘Cause you are more than this emotion, you are stronger than your doubts
You can move forward, just move on from here
Verse 2
And now this dream is set in motion
Give it everything you have
There’s no place for indecision, this is time for perfect vision
Don’t let this moment slip through your hands
Chorus
‘Cause you were never meant to fly with your feet upon the ground
You get the best out of this life by looking up not looking down
And once this moment is gone it will never come around again
Verse 3
We may not have tomorrow
We may not even have today
So get up on your feet, no more slumber no more sleep
It’s time to say the things that you need to say
Chorus
Instrumental
Bridge
Fly in this freedom that you’ve found
Stand tall, stand proud
Breath deep, laugh loud, let your heart sing
Soar, you were meant for so much more
Take the key unlock the door
Rise up on eagle’s wings

A Little Love

A LITTLE LOVE

Verse 1
Beautiful woman, dressed up to the nines
Red lips on she paints a picture of perfection, but it’s a thinly veiled disguise

Pre-chorus 1
Still she carries on saying nothing’s wrong, but she’s crying out inside
For a

Chorus
Little love from Jesus
A little walk to the Cross
A little time to lay down her burdens
And find the little girl lost

One line in front of the other, another trick to turn
Still she tries to tell herself that she’s got it all together ‘cause she’s got money to burn

She needs a

UBU

Written By: Jade Ambroze

UBU

Verse 1
New skin, old wine, old wine, new skin
Heavy handed paper thin
We dig our graves to save our face then gently tumble in

Pre-chorus
And it’s a miracle we survive
When we’re desperately quietly trying to live somebody else’s life

Chorus
So u b u and I’ll be me
And we’ll get by just fine
‘Cause I can’t do the things u do and you can’t do what’s mine

And I don’t know how it goes or
why we even try
To walk in someone else’s shoes when ours fit our feet fine
When ours fit our feet fine

Verse 2
Mid life, young life, old life crisis
Ever screaming to fit in
We fight against a shadow light then worry that someday we’ll win

Pre-chorus
‘Cause when we get to where we wanna go
Will it be all our dreams or someone else’s show

Chorus

Bridge
Just a while back I turned a light on and looked around
And I said this is not my life this is not where I am found
And I’ve been crawling, crawling ever since slowly, slowly gaining ground
Fist over fist ever pounding quiet sound

It's Just Material

Written By: Jade Ambroze

ITS JUST MATERIAL

Verse 1
Wear them loosely wear them tight
Most of all make sure you wear them right
For this season for some reason
Its okay to wear them both ways
I can’t keep up with the fashion
I don’t seem to have the passion now

Chorus A
Since time has gone
And I see things in their real light
And I don’t understand all the fuss
Its material not flesh and blood

CHORUS B1
I don’t understand all the fuss
Its material not flesh and blood

Verse 2
Spots are in and then they’re out
So I can’t be caught dead in them now
‘Cause they say to be successful
I must try my best to dress well
I am tired, I am bored
Labels, labels I don’t need them anymore

Chorus A & B1

Bridge
Wake me, wake me, shake me, shake me from this nightmare
Shake me, shake me, wake me, wake me from this nightmare

Verse 3
Baby ‘cino mocha late
Oh my now I’m sounding artey

Chorus B 2
But I don’t understand all the fuss
Its just coffee in my coffee cup
I don’t understand all the fuss
Its just coffee in my coffee cup
I don’t understand all the fuss
It’s material not flesh and blood

Chorus B1 x 2

Outro
What price, what price, what price a life
What price, what price, what price a life
I don’t understand all the fuss
Its material not flesh and blood

Well I’m finally comfortable in my own skin
War scars back bite marks here I am
And I’m slowly quietly drinking it in

Draw back from the track crack a smile
And it’s like I’ve been born again as a child
And everything is new here

It’s the Fourth of July in my street
And I’m gonna dance I don’t care who notices
‘Cause I’m finally growing into me

And summer never looked so good or smelt so sweet
And the pieces of the puzzle finally meet
And it’s nice to fit my shoes around my feet
And run and not get tired

My cup is flowing over not half dried up
My confidence is growing but not too much
And the tough get going when the going gets tough
So now I am inspired

Haiti

Written By: Jade Ambroze

HAITI

Verse 1

I feel disquiet in my soul
And I am uncomfortable with the state of this world
Restavecs* in captivity
While we languish on our lounges watching Pay TV
There’s gotta be more
There’s gotta be more

Chorus

Stand up
Shout it out
Be a voice in the wilderness
A heckler in the crowd
It’s not enough
To just sit by
And consume our commodities while other people die

It’s not enough
It was never enough

Verse 2

They’re eating mud in Haiti
While we gorge ourselves on mud cake and drink skim decaf coffee
We pontificate about the government
And say it’s not our fault that their money is all spent
And they’re all poor
There’s gotta be more

Chorus

Verse 3

I hear the voice of the oppressed
And Jesus saying what have you done about this
I hear a whisper then a roar
Calling me to responsibility
Calling me to the poor

To

Chorus

*Author's note - Restavecs are child slaves in Haiti, some as young as 3, sold by a poor family into a wealthier one with the hope of a better life. Unfortunatley this is not the case and they are treated as slaves, and often set on the streets at the age of 15 when the owner has to pay them, with nowhere to go.

Where is God?

Written By: Jade Ambroze

Where is God?

Verse 1
Greed and deprivation
Murder, rape, starvation
And the question on most people’s lips

Pre-chorus 1
Is where is God in all of, where is God in all of, where is God in all of this?

Chorus
Well God works through His people so we’d better make a start
We’re His hand and feet and eyes and ears and heart
And while injustice moves and lives and breathes we cannot be at ease
We must beg and plead and fight and bleed ‘til all God’s children live in peace

Verse 2
Slavery, child labour
Despot and enabler
Still we raise their hands and shake our fists

Pre-chorus 2
And say where is God in all of this?

Chorus

Bridge
Stock market crash and food shortage
Still we ask ourselves where is God in all this?
Well if I have another, give it to my brother
‘Cause I’m God’s love, His heart, His hope, His kiss

This is Why I Call You My Friend

Written By: Jade Ambroze

THIS IS WHY I CALL YOU MY FRIEND

Verse 1
So I think back on the joys your friendship has brought into my life
When we talked so far into the night we watched the morning rise
Well you heard the news I held you close for comfort when you cried
I cherish all these moments

Chorus
This is why I call you my friend
‘Cause in between the words unspoken there’s a bond that never ends
Although there will be times when we’re apart
Wherever you may go my friend you’re always in my heart

Verse 2
Well you cared for me through the good and bad
I never was alone
And I loved the way you shared my joys as if they were your own
I didn’t have to tell you how I felt you’ve always known

Chorus

Verse 3
And so the years went by and we lost touch as people often do
And I missed your sense of humour and the way you got me through
Then you called me up the other day and somehow I just knew
We’d cherish this moment

Chorus x 2

Please

PLEASE

Verse 1
Why does this climb leave me breathless?
Why is this road so narrow?
Why do I want to give up so easily?
Why am I so shallow?
And why won’t I swim in this river?
Why won’t I get my feet wet?
Why won’t I stand and deliver?
Why am I not there yet?

Chorus 1
Please come and catch me
Please hold out Your hand
Please run and fetch me ‘cause I’ve stumbled fallen down again
Please show Your mercy
Please find me here
Please draw me to Yourself and whisper in my ear

Verse 2
How can I know with such certainty
then stand divided?
Where is the trust within my heart
For My provider?
And how can I give all myself to You
then hold so much back?
Where is the wisdom in my decisions
what is it that I lack?

Chorus 1

Bridge
How many times must I make the same mistakes?
And how is it every time You shower me with grace?
And why do I take the road that leads so far from home?
And how is it even then I’m never alone?

As you

Come and catch me
As You hold out Your hand
As You run and fetch me as I stumble fall down again
As You show your mercy
As You find me here

Cliche

Written By: Jade Ambroze

Verse 1
And I don't wanna hear cliches anymore
It's not our problem, not our conflict, not our war
Verse 2
And I just wanna scream when people say life is cheap
That's just a way to shift responsibility

Pre-chorus
And I'm convicted, I am torn
Between this world and The Lord's

And there's

Chorus
Blood on my hands
Stained with the blood of my fellow man
But I won't walk away this time
I will stand and say your life is worth as much as mine

Verse 3
It's the blind leading the blind
And our blessings overflow
But if no-one pays the price then no-one will go

Verse 4
And just because it has been
Doesn't mean it has to be
Because they are enslaved doesn't mean they can't be free

Pre-chorus
And I am shattered, I am worn
And I don't think that I can take this anymore
With this

Chorus

Bridge
My God, my God what have we done?
How arrogant has this world become
What greed, what shame, what waste
To think that we've forgotten Your amazing grace

So we could be free
So that means you're just as precious as me

The Answer to My Prayers

Written By: Jade Ambroze

Verse 1
This is not what I expected
Thought I had my heart protected
But you're bringing me undone

Verse 2
And if this is love it's worth the waiting
All my doubts are slowly fading
And I know I want to run

Pre-chorus
Into your arms, into your world my love

Chorus 1
You lift me up when I am feeling low
You take my hand and gently guide me home
Sometimes I cannot comprehend why you would choose to care
But love I know you are the answer to my prayers

Verse3
And you're my knight in shining armour
Gift from God and my safe harbour
This is where I belong
'Cause I'm alive like never before
You've unlocked unopened doors
And I know I want to run
Into your arms, into your world my love

Chorus 2
You give me wings and gladly watch me fly
You dance with me, then hold me when I cry
In this world people give up easily but you are always there
And love I know you are the answer to my prayers

Chorus 3
You walk with me at sunrise and at night
And I can see you think I'm worth the fight
Out of my dreams and into my life
And love I know you are the answer to my prayers
And love I know you are the answer to my prayers

I Was

Written By: Jade Ambroze

I Was

Verse 1
I was a raging sea
There was a storm inside of me
And You were my calm

Verse 2
I was a train road wreck
I was an emotional mess
And You were my healing balm

Chorus
And this is me, quietly saying thank you
I’m glad You took the time to listen
And by the way I do appreciate You lately
So don’t go ‘cause I know what I’d be missin’

Verse 3
I was a season without change
I was relentless Winter’s rain
And You were my sunshine

Verse 4
I was a pawn in someone’s game
I was a face without a name
And You called me just in time

Chorus

Bridge
‘Cause I am nothing without You
You are everything to me
You have opened up my view
Yes You gave me eyes to see

And there’s nothing I can do
And there’s nothing I can say
That will stop You loving me
That will turn Your face away

Verse 5
I was a body without breath
I was entombed in emptiness
And You were my Life

Verse 6
I was a prisoner in a cell
Locked in a sell imposed hell
And You heard my cry

Chorus
So don’t go ‘cause I know what I’d be missin’

Chorus 1
And I won't give up I won't I won't I won't
And I won't give in I don't I don't I don't

Verse 3
Some people are malicious they think gossip is delicious and they eat it like a tantilising treat

Verse 4
And their diatribe is bitter in an email or a twitter but it doesn't really matter they won't get the best of me

Chorus 2
And I won't give up I won't I won't I won't
