Don't Come Back

Written By: Nicki Park

DON'T COME BACK
Nicki Park (c) 2010
style: Country/pop 'angry chick rock'
www.nickipark.com

(v1)
I deleted every email
threw out every letter and every photograph
of you baby

And things are lookin better for me
now that I have my space again
Oh Baby

And how did you think that we would ever survive
When our relationship was built on nothing but lies

So turn around start walking
don't look back and we'll both be better off
Whoa baby

(ch)
Don't Come, Don't Come, Don't come back
I don't wanna see your face
I don't wanna know where you're at

Don't call, Don't Call I won't pick up the phone
I have nothin' left to say to you
Baby you're on your own

(v2)
Out of desperation you ask if we could possibly try again
and I said baby

I've lost my patience with you
It's too little too late
So go on get outta here baby

You make me empty promises
and think I'll take you back but
I know that you know me better than that

So turn around start walkin
Don't look back and we'll both be better off
Oh baby

(repeat ch)

(bridge)
No texting, no facebook, you're deleted off my email
No reconciliation baby
Just go to H--sigh

(repeat ch)

Just For A Day

Written By: Nicki Park

JUST FOR A DAY
Nicki Park (c) 2010
style: slow country or pop ballad
www.nickipark.com

(v1)
Just for a day I want to be near you
Just for a day will you hold my hand
Just for a day can we still say that we're together
Just for a day

(ch)
Now - - -
It's too late
What -- if
just for a day
We turn the pages back in time
Would you be mine

(v2)
And in that day would you lay beside me
And in that day just one last kiss
Just for the day can we pretend that it's forever
Just for a day

(repeat ch)

(bridge)
And in that moment when you look me in the eye
Could you tell me that you love me
Without it being a lie

(repeat ch)

Better Than Yeterday

Written By: Nicki Park

BETTER THAN YESTERDAY
Nicki Park © 7.3.2008
style: up tempo country
www.nickipark.com

Overworked and underpaid I just can’t get ahead
Tryin to recover from yesterday my eyes are bloodshot red
I try so hard to please everyone just to make it through this mess
A voice inside keeps telling me your efforts will be blessed
Will be blessed

(ch1)

Then the sun comes up and it’s shinin on me
The clear skies above makes me wanna believe
That yesterday’s blues are all fadin away

Knowin that I have you at least I can sa –a-ay

That I’m Better than yesterday
Better than yesterday
(v2)
Worries won’t stop runnin through are keepin me awake
A list of things I gotta do gets longer every day
I take my sleepin aide and lay my weary head to rest
Next day’s first dose of coffee will start me at my best
I’ll do my best

(ch)
(br)
I know you have been there too
Every day tryin to make it through
With a bad hair day and clothes all wrong
5:00 road rage (spoken) – “Man I just wanna get home”

(ch 2)

Then the night sky falls and the peaceful moon
My long hot bath takes me away to sooth
And thinkin bout you puts a smile on my face
Whatever tomorrow brings it’s still a brand new day

(repeat ch1)

I'll Wait For Christmas- a song for our troops

Written By: Nicki Park

I’ll Wait for Christmas (Until You Come Home)
Nicki Park © 12.28.2007
style: Christmas ballad for the troops - could stylize in pop/christian or country
www.nickipark.com


This Christmas something is missing
It’s not the same without you
I put a smile on my face and pretend it’s okay
But inside I’m crying for you to come home soon


This year I’m waiting for Christmas
I’ll keep the lights on the tree
I’ll leave the presents unopened

Though you’ve been gone so long
I’ll wait for Christmas
Until you come home


This year many are serving
They miss their loved ones so dear
They send us letters that say everything is okay
But we’re all still praying for Christmas you’ll be here


And for those who were lost, Heaven’s waiting for you
Angels of honor, you will be home soon


Heaven is waiting for Christmas
Shining bright lights so we’ll see
The smile on your face
How we’ll miss you each day

The angels are waiting for Christmas
We’re all still waiting for Christmas
I’ll be here waiting for Christmas
Until you come home

Beyond My Heart

Written By: Nicki Park

BEYOND MY HEART
Music/lyrics – Nicki Park © 6.2000
style: country or christian ballad
www.nickipark.com

I can’t see beyond today
But I know that the future will find me
And I know the Lord will make a way
So moving on, I’ve left the past behind me

Beyond my heart, beyond my mind
Beyond the dreams that I’ve dared to dream
Beyond the earth, beyond the sky
There’s a plan that is further than I can see
But I know He’ll make a way for me

Moving mountains with every step
I’ll walk by faith, not by what I see
Trusting You to keep me safe
Down this road that You’ve paved for me

STRONGER

style: 'empowering' medium tempo ballad - could be pop / christian or country
www.nickipark.com

(v1)

Finding my way through life
Trying to pass the memories
Playin over and over again inside my head

It’s harder to find myself
Where’s the missing piece
But to walk through this pain
I must take that first step

(ch)
So I’m
pickin up the pieces and I
put myself together and I
take that first step forward and I
won’t let nothing stop me
And I’m
Movin even further as I
Hold my head up higher and I’m
Feelin even more proud of myself

Cuz I’m stronger
I’m stronger
Yes I’m stronger
Now

(v2)
Can’t begin to explain
The way you made me feel
I’d been doubting myself for so long

But you can’t have my weakness
I’m worth more than that
Move out of my way
I’m not (ain’t if it’s country) turnin back

I Forgive You

Written By: Nicki Park

I FORGIVE YOU
Music/lyrics Nicki Park © 2.14.2007
style: pop / country or christian rock med tempo
www.nickipark.com

All that you’ve done to me
You ended up hurting yourself
You took my innocence
But you didn’t take my will, my heart, my soul, my mind

It wasn’t easy but I came out being stronger
I learned forgiveness and now walk through life not bitter
Cause I forgive you

The lies that held on to you
Was there anything real
Was the oppression so strong
That it took your will, your heart, your soul, your mind

It wasn’t easy but you should have been much stronger
I was a child who only needed a father
But I forgive you

Why were there so many pains that you’ve had to hide
Could you not purge the change to live a new life
Now that the time is lost what lingers still
Is it too late to change
The thoughts of your will, your heart, your soul, your mind
God change his heart, his soul, his mind

It wasn’t easy but you should have been much stronger
I was a child who only needed a father
Oh, and I learned forgiveness and now walk through life not bitter
Cause I forgive you
I forgive you
God forgive you

Faith

Written By: Nicki Park

FAITH
Music/lyrics – Nicki Park © 3.5.2007
style: upbeat christian
www.nickipark.com

I’ve been given a voice I’m gonna use it
I’ve got something to say I’m gonna say it
There is nothing, nothing, nothing I cannot do through faith
I’ve been put in a race I’m gonna run it
I’m gonna pick up the pace I’m gonna win it
‘Cause there’s nothin’, nothin’, nothin’ I cannot do through faith

I’m as big as a mustard seed
Now I believe
There is nothin’ that I can’t do through His strength
There is nothin’, nothin’, nothin’ I cannot do through Faith
No there’s nothin’, nothin’, nothin’ I cannot do through Faith

If trouble’s coming at me I’m gonna move it
Keep on pushing my way until I’m through it
Cause there’s nothin’, nothin’, nothin’ I cannot do through faith

My Rescuer

Written By: Nicki Park

MY RESCUER
Music/lyrics – Nicki Park © 3.19.07
style: upbeat christian with 'retro' twist
www.nickipark.com

A fire lit up in me today when I sat down to pray
I prayed with expectation
I know now all I have to do is just depend on You
Not wait for an invitation

Now You took me from my lowest
And You brought me to the highest of highs
When You grabbed onto my soul
I knew that You would never leave me behind

You are my rescuer
You came when I needed You most
I didn’t have more than I could bear
But You saved me from being lost
My rescuer

There’s an overwhelming joy in me now that I know I’m free
I’m free from desperation
Finding a friend in You is all that I had to do
And wait with anticipation

IF I'M DREAMIN'
Nicki Park (c) 2010
style: could be movie love song (i.e.: disney / harry potter / twilight appropriate)
inspired by the book, "Book of Secrets" by Ernest Burnett

6m 5
I must be dreaming cause my world is spinning
4
Until you walk
6m 5
Up to me, take my hand and you ask me to dance and
4
My heart stops

6m 5
Then we float away without having to say
4
We don’t want this to end
6m 5 4
We drift off into the night and you’re pulling me tighter and then

CH
1 6m
You lay down beside me and ooh I feel your heart beat and
4 6m 3M
Then you lean over and kiss me
1 6m
And oh, it’s just like a fever; The warmth of you being nearer to
4 6m 3M
Me please don’t wake me up if I’m drea- min

V2

You’ve got me under your spell and I know you can tell

I’m weak

Your charm’s so inviting but a little bit frightening and

I can’t speak

You have swept me away without having to say

You don’t want this to end

This feeling of waltzing keeps my heartbeat pulsing

You twirl me in a spin – then (ch)

You Make Me Believe

Written By: Nicki Park

YOU MAKE ME BELIEVE
Nicki Park (c) 2010
style: country / pop / christian med tempo
www.nickipark.com

When I can't stand the noise
I'm just reaching for solitude
Off in the distance is poised
A perfect image of you

Then I see that you're really here
The world's standing silent
And suddenly everything's clear

CH
You
You make me believe that everything is gonna be alright
You
You let me be me no matter if I am wrong or if I'm right
You
You are my strength when I'm weak, when I'm scared in the dark night
You
You make me believe, you make me believe

V2
When I can no longer stand
And I feel like I cannot breathe
Your love passes like sand
Your heart starts beating through me

And I feel that you're really here
My world's getting stronger
And suddenly everything's clear

repeat chorus

If Only You Knew

V1
The only choice I thought I had
Was to never walk that path
To never know your smile

But you came and found me
Took my heart and suddenly
I knew I’d missed you all the while

Pre-ch
But the choices became yours
I didn’t ask for anything more
Just not to break my heart
But you did

Ch:
if only you knew
how many goodbyes’
I (had) already written to you

But there was never a choice
When I looked in your eyes
If you only knew
I didn’t choose you

V2
Tried to pretend it wasn’t real
There was no other way to feel
Leaving questions in my mind

I still love you even though
You said I had to let you go
For now we’ll leave it all behind

Pre-ch 2
But the choices are still yours
I didn’t ask for anything more
Just not to break my heart
But you did

BR:
We didn’t choose this moment in time
If it came back around
Would you choose to be mine

CH

Tell Me It Wouldn't Have Mattered

TELL ME IT WOULDN'T HAVE MATTERED
Nicki Park (c) 2010
style: pop / country
www.nickipark.com

V1
Tell me it wouldn't have mattered
If I'd stayed that night
Tell me it wouldn't have mattered
If we tried to make things right

Tell me it wouldn't have mattered
If we did things differently
Tell me it wouldn't have mattered
You'd still gotten over me

Tell me it wouldn't have mattered

CH
Cuz I still want you
And I need you
And with every breath I'm breathin in you

I can't stop
Thinkin bout you
Tell me it's really over
So I'll stop loving you

(tell me it wouldn't mattered)

V2
Tell me it wouldn't mattered
That you really have moved on
Give me something clearer
Tell me everything was wrong

Tell me it wouldn't have mattered
That there was nothing I could do
Tell me it wouldn't mattered
So maybe I can move on too

Tell me it wouldn't mattered

CH2
Cuz I still want you
And I need you
And with every breath I'm breathin in you

I can't stop
Thinkin bout you
Tell me it's really over so maybe I'll stop

Hopin
And believin
That that look in your eyes
Still means somethin more

(tell me it wouldn't mattered)

Way Of The World

Written By: Nicki Park

WAY OF THE WORLD
Nicki Park (c) 1991
style: fast southern gospel

CH
It's not by the way of the world that I'm going
It's not by all of my good deeds
But by grace He has saved me
Through faith He has raised me

I'm forgiven and goin' to heaven
But it's not by the way of the world

No it's not by the way of the world

V1
When David met up with Goliath
He threw away his helmet and sword
With a small stone he found
He sent that giant to the ground
He found his faith in the way of the Lord
Not in the way of the world

repeat CH
v2
When Noah built that ark for his people
He knew that it would rain and pour
They just laughed and called him fool
Then they drowned in one big pool
They fell out of the hands of the Lord
And died to the ways of the world

repeat CH
Bridge
When they threw Daniel in the den
He didn't even hear a lion roar
Daniel wasn't goin to give in
Give into the way of the world

key change
repeat CH
