Lyrics

Strong (Woman)

Written By: Rita Marchant

Strong (Woman). Rita Marchant

Still finding it hard to believe
That something like this could happen to you
The tears flood your eyes in the night
You try and tell yourself it’s gonna be alright
The man you have loved all your life
Betrayed all you trust and your confidence
Now strength you must find from within
A new place to start again

Forgive him and let him go
You will survive oh heaven knows
Hold on to the guiding light
Its gonna be alright, its gonna be alright

The pain you are feeling inside
It has torn you apart from all the lies
Lift your eyes to the heavens above
For in our darkest hour we need a Higher Love

Forgive him and let him go
You will survive oh heaven knows
Hold on to the guiding light
Its gonna be alright, its gonna be alright
Forgive him and let him be
Healing will come when you set him free
Incredible strength I see
You’re a strong woman, beautiful woman

No, no don’t give up strong woman
Don’t give in strong woman
Hold on tight strong woman
Its gonna be alright, its gonna be alright

Don’t give up, don’t give up
Ooh strong woman.

Heart of the Anzac

Written By: Rita Marchant/Ashley Farrell

Against all odds a young nation fought
Jungle to desert who’ld have thought
With an unbreakable spirit they met their foes
Face to face and stood toe to toe

Chorus:
Refusing to yield and never turning back
Their courage became legend
Heart of the Anzac

They went to war to fight for this land
The ultimate sacrifice given by man
For this land they gave their lives
They did not bend
And with honour we remember them

Chorus:
Refusing to yield and never turning back
Their courage became legend
Heart of the Anzac

BRIDGE
With bullets flying, their mates were dying
Still they held their ground
Time will not weary those who did not survive
Nor will the years condemn

To the great wars Australians have marched
In the fiercest battles they’ve taken part
And on this day we want to tell
The world of your courage
You served Australia well

CHORUS
Refusing to yield and never turning back
Their courage became legend
Heart of the Anzac

You refused to yield and you never looked back
Our freedom we owe to you
Heart of the Anzac
Heart of the Anzac
Heart of the Anzac

Grandads Grand Piano

Written By: Rita Marchant

Granddads Grand Piano. Rita Marchant

Through the eyes of a child
When the world was so much younger
Granddad would sit and wait
For us to come on over
To climb up there upon his knee
He’d place our fingers on the keys
And together we’d play a melody

But the years have passed
And time has stolen him away
And with him went the sweetest melodies
But time cannot erase
The smile upon his face
When we played
Granddads grand piano

In my room in the corner by the window
Is granddads grand piano all alone
As I sit and write this song
In my mind I hear him play
Along with me, along with me

Yes the years have passed
But time has not stolen him away
For his legacy will keep on living on
Every time his pianos played
I see that smile upon his face
When we play granddads grand piano

You’re not gone, lets sing a song
Granddads grand piano.

Do or Die

Written By: Rita Marchant/Ashley Farrell

Do Or Die. Rita Marchant/Ashley Farrell

No one said life was fair
Just look up and don’t despair
Life is precious don’t waste one bit
Be brave enough to take hold of it.

You’ve been down so far, down so long
The walls are closing in its all gone wrong
Crush you fears begin your climb
Out of this hole just stay strong

Challenge after challenge, tears of frustration
Out of your soul cries of desperation
Take a breath and calm your mind
Don’t look back you’re doing fine

This is it you must take your stand
The only way out is by your hand (Gods hand)
The choice is yours make or break
Laugh or cry, yours alone, now or never
Do or die.

It’s not that bad and nothing lasts forever
Face your fears and never say never
Fight for your footing after every stumble
There’s always light at the end of the tunnel

Up, down, good and bad, round and round
It’s one big ride don’t you be left behind
You’ve got so much to offer, you’ve got so much to see
Life’s for the taking can’t you see.
