Lyrics

Just Wanna Be (Love during war)

Written By: Kenneth Jones

Pre
Your empty bed, your pillow it lingers on my soul

Verse 1
No! I can't find a girl just like you
And no I can't love someone just as much as I love you
I thought this pain it would have passed by now
But each day I get closer to seeing your smile

Chorus
And I don't cry no more, I just wanna be
And I don't want to give no more, I just wanna be
See I don't care what they fighting for, I just wanna be
Until she's walking through that door, just let me be

Verse 2
Never thought I would cry on a Saturday listening to Mary J
You never know what I heavy heart feels like until you feel its weight
There were many times when my soul stirred to anger and I screamed! Your name ooh baby I don't know what else to say but...
I need you, I miss you, and I'll always stand by you and I just pray that you're safe from harms way

Chorus
And I don't cry no more, I just wanna be
And I don't want to give no more, I just wanna be
See I don't care what they fighting for, I just wanna be
Until she's walking through that door, just let me be

Ending:
(I just wanna be) Near you by you, I just wanna be

Train Tracks (This is the life)

Written By: Kenneth Jones

Intro
We all live on the train tracks
And we all face an oncoming train
And it could come at anytime
So it's our choice on how we spend our time
On the train tracks

Verse 1:
I painted my train tracks
I poured out some wine
I put up some pictures
I cleared out my mind
I try to enjoy this
But I'm scared of the lights
I know they are coming
I haven't lived my life

Chorus:
This is the life (This is the life)
When you just waiting on the train to come (Life)
See I gotta live (I gotta live)
I dont know when my train gon come (Live)

Verse 2:
The life on the train tracks
Most times unfulfilled
I spend time unwisely
I don't look for thrills
I settle for average
When I know I could do better for myself
I follow someone elses dreams, instead of making mine come true

Chorus:
This is MY life (This is the life)
I'm just waiting on the train to come (Life)
See I BETTER live (I gotta live)
I dont know when my train gon come (Live)

Ending:
LIVE (I gotta live, I gotta live)
GIVE (I gotta give to myself)
UPHILL (I know I gotta climb uphill)
FULFILLED (So I can live my life fulfilled)

LIVE (So I look in the mirror)
GIVE (I say KI you gotta live)
UPHILL (Cause you don't know if today gon be your last day)
FULFILLED

Oh yeah!
