Lyrics

Time's Running Out

Written By: Kelly Newton-Wordsworth

Verse 1
I look out the window
and what do I see?
I don’t see no sky
Man there’s a cloud around me
The clock on the wall
Says that it’s half past three
Time’s running out
It’s got a hook on me
Woh time’s running out
It’s got a hook on me

Verse 2
Oh won’t you come back to the earth?
You know the earth is your mother
Look into your heart if you want to find your lover
Speak to the people if you want to see your brother
Time’s running out
We’ve got to learn to love each other
Time’s running out
We’ve got to learn to love each other

Chorus
Time’s running out
Let’s get together
Time’s running out
We’re birds of a feather
Time’s running out
Don’t you understand it?
Time’s running out for our nuclear planet

Repeat Verse 2

(Chorus Rpt)

For The Love Of Flowers

Written By: Kelly Newton-Wordsworth

Chorus
For the love of flowers, I sing this song
For the love of people, who love to sing along
For the love of beauty and the love of grace
That lies deep in the heart of the entire human race

For the love of children and singing in the rain
Jumping in a puddle and walking down a lane
For the love of nature in all its' majesty
Breathing in the splendour of a giant Karri tree

(Chorus)
Do you see
Can you feel?
Do you hear
What is always near?

For the love of families
The laughter and good cheer
For the love of mothers
Who wipe away the tears
For the love of fathers
Who help us to stand tall
For the love of one God
Creator of us all

(Chorus)

For the love of flowers, I sing this song
For the love of people who love to sing along
For the love of beauty, and the love of Grace
that lies deep in the heart of
the entire human race

For the love of flowers....

One World One Planet

One World One Planet
Music and Lyrics by Kelly Newton-Wordsworth
Copyright Newtone Productios Pty Ltd

Millions of years ago the earth was formed
And out of the heavens the sky was born
And we came along one day just a human race
And birds and bees and flowers and trees
And everything that we might need
Chorus
We’ve been given one world one planet
We’ve been given one world one planet

And over millions of years there have been so many tears
From all of those birds and bees, watching our insanity
As we tear down the forests, tear down the trees,
Fill all the oceans with whatever we please
Mine all the mountains to find all the gold
How many times do we have to be told
Chorus (Repeat)
Let’s take this one life and do what we can
To make a difference and take a stand
Take a stand for the forests, a stand for the trees
A stand for the oceans and the air we breathe
Chorus (Repeat) x2
One world one planet
One world one ocean
One world one people
One world one planet

See The World

See The World
Music and Lyrics by Kelly Newton-Wordsworth
C Newtone Productions 2009
Verse 1
A world full of love is the only world to dream of,
Can we see,
It's the only way that we can turn?
Oh can we learn
To leave the past behind us?
Live for today, live right now.

Chorus
See the world x 3
Through new eyes
See the world x 3
And be surprised

Verse 2
You and I we've known a lot of hatred
We have cried so many times
How can we go on inside this story?
Let go of the hurt and fly free

Chorus
See the world x 3
Through new eyes
See the world x 3
And be surprised

Bridge
It's a beautiful world
Open your eyes and see
It's a beautiful world
And it's here for you and me

Verse 3
A world full of love is the only world I'm making
Leaving behind all my fear
You can come with me now, and take the path I'm taking
Hand in hand flying free

Chorus
See the world x 3
Through new eyes
See the world x 3
And be surprised

A Country Christmas Carol

Written By: Kelly Newton-Wordsworth

A Country Christmas Carol
Music and Lyrics by Kelly Newton-Wordsworth c 2007
Verse 1
It was a starry night in Bethlehem
There was a star so bright, it brought three wise men
To travel so far, far across the land
To see a special baby, known as “the lamb”
Chorus
He was the son of God, something no-one else has ever claimed
He was the son of God and Jesus was His name
Verse 2
There were three young shepherds watching their flocks at night,
Something appeared before them, gave them such a mighty fright,
It was an angel of the Lord, in such a perfect light
Told them to go to Jesus and everything would be alright
Chorus Repeat
Verse 3
It was in a lowly stable, among the sheep and the hay
With the oxen and the horses, Lord Jesus lay
But that’s all part of the mystery, of our God Almighty
That the King of all nations would be born in this way!
Chorus Repeat
