Lyrics

Satellites

Written By: Lili Haydn

we all saw the water sweep the streets
with the force that carried Noah
we've all seen the strong mow down the weak
with no rhyme or reason
but every honey drop
and everyone i've lost
brings me back to You

and we are satellites
in so much blackness
it hurts when we collide
is this how it's supposed to be?
you are the brightest star
and also darkness
and we are diamonds
dancing in the sea

been brought to my knees so many times
always a deeper well discovered
i don't understand the lines
we draw between eachother
but every honey drop
and everyone i've lost
brings me back to You (Yahweh)

and we are satellites
in so much blackness
it hurts when we collide
is this how it's supposed to be?
you are the brightest star
and also darkness
and we are diamonds
dancing in the sea
and separation
is only a reverie

Strawberry Street

Written By: L.Haydn, M.Etzioni, C.James

STRAWBERRY STREET

I’m just walking down strawberry street
The afterglow of love is sweet
Everything is just the way it should be
Love love love
Love love love

Walking on air Clouds at my feet
Free as a Bird On strawberry street.
strawberry street.

The sun is shining on strawberry street
Don’t really care what tomorrow brings
There’s a fire burning inside of me
Love love love
Love love love

Walking on air Clouds at my feet
Free as a Bird On strawberry street.
strawberry street.

Walking on air Clouds at my feet
Free as a Bird On strawberry street.
strawberry street.

Walking on air Clouds at my feet
Free as a Bird On strawberry street.
strawberry street.
Love love love
Love love love
Love love love

Can't Give Everything

Written By: Lili Haydn/Marvin Etzioni

What just happened
behind your eyes
your mood is changing
and i don't know why
is it fear of love
or love of fear
that keeps you distant
and keeps me near
it draws me near

and i need the promise
and i want forever
but i know
you can't give everything to me
and i need the magic
but i wont surrender
cuz i know
you can't give everything

i'm filled with sadness
the dress i know
and i keep on praying
for a miracle
a miracle

and i need the promise
and i want forever
but i know
you can't give everything to me
and i need the magic
but i wont surrender
cuz i know
you can't give everything

Saddest Sunset

Written By: Lili Haydn

Saddest Sunset

Tonight might be the saddest sunset
It’s time to walk this road alone
And though the darkness has fallen
It can change in an instant
‘cause the light that you’re longing for
is your own

It’s hard when no one hears you calling
who will catch you if you fall?
And though the waters are rising
We all leave and come in alone
The love that you’re longing for
Is your own
and the love that you’re longing for
Is your own

Memory One

Written By: Lili Haydn

Memory One

Memory one
I’m calling you
Your number is there
But it’s hard to get through
And I miss you
Memory one

Memory one
It’s been a few years
I thought that I
Had cried all my tears
But I miss you
Memory one

And I long for you
I call for you
And I belong to you
To you
To you

Memory one
I’m making my way
But I think of you
Every day
And I miss you
Memory one

Memory one
I know you’re around
I hear your voice
I just miss the sound
And I love you Memory one

(CHORUS)

Memory one
It’s getting late
I’m going to sleep
We have a date
I will be with you
I will kiss you
Memory one

We Got the Power

Written By: L. Haydn, M. Etzioni

WE GOT THE POWER

A change is gonna come
No turning back now
I can see a surge of doves
Fly to higher ground

I don’t believe in false hope
I don’t believe in yesterday
I believe the moon and the stars
Are not too far away

We got the power
To bring eyesight to the blind
We got the power
To bring light in the dark night
We got the power
Let every heart be filled with hope
We got the power
We got the power now

Let this be our shining moment
Let this be our shining hour
We got the power
We got the power now

The future is before us
The sun is rising in the dark
Will we stand together
At the crossroads of the heart?

We got the power
To bring lightning to the sky
We got the power
To stop and wonder why
We got the power
Let every heart be filled with hope
We got the power
This world is our home
Let this be our shining moment
Let this be our shining hour
We got the power
We got the power now

Let this be our shining moment
Let this be our shining hour
We got the power
We got the power now

We got the power
We got the power…..
