Lyrics

Me, My Pen And I

Written By: Sameer Khan

Verse 1

When it gets dark I sit and ponder for ages,
And the secrets in my heart spill out onto the pages,
There's a fire in my eyes - it constantly rages,
I ain't some rapper that just wants to be famous,
These bars represent my life,
And with my pen in sight I sense that I've got the strength to fight,
I've been sent to strike - I've spent endless nights alone,
My best friends are my pen and microphone,
I write when I feel dark and cold,
When the ink starts to flow you know that's my heart and soul,
And everytime I pick up a pen
That lyrical flame inside me flickers again,
Life can be deep - steady fighting for peace,
So I vibe to the beat and I write for my peeps,
Days turn to lonely nights when I sleep,
But the ink shines like a bright light when it's bleak,

Chorus

It's just me, my pen and I, until I die,
Just me, my pen and I,
The only ones who really know what I feel inside,
Just me, my pen and I

(Repeat twice)

Verse 2

I've suffered alot - but these struggles and knocks
Have made me tough as a rock - still the troubles don't stop,
But the sorrow taught me countless lessons,
And I ain't promised tomorrow so I count my blessings,
My pen and I - writing these bars and fighting the past,
Looking for a light in the dark 'coz life can be harsh,
But I cherish every second - coz life is a chance,
That's why I live every day like it's my last,
My pen cries tears when my eyes are gleaming,
Everybody's gotta die so I strive for meaning,
Tryn'a find the reason why I'm breathing,
So with both my eyes open wide I'm dreaming,
Pen in my hand - got a venomous plan,
My Nine to Five is too strenous man,
They say I can't but I tell them I can,
And sometimes no-one but my pen understands, that's why I know

Chorus

It's just me, my pen and I, until I die,
Just me, my pen and I,
The only ones who really know what I feel inside,
Just me, my pen and I

(Repeat twice)

Break

This is a love song I wrote to my pen,
I couldn't wait to hold you again
(Again and I)
Just wanted to buss a flow for my pen,
I wanted to let you know you're a friend,
(A friend of mine)
This is a love song I wrote to my pen,
And we're gonna stay close till' the end,
(The end of time)
Through the highs and lows you're my friend,
Coz all my life's hopes just depend on
(My pen and I)

Chorus

It's just me, my pen and I, until I die,
Just me, my pen and I,
The only ones who really know what I feel inside,
Just me, my pen and I

I Still Believe

Written By: Sameer Khan

Verse 1

Life is a long road and I know it's rough,
But the tough get going when the going’s tough,
Never had much as a kid growing up,
So I just wanna thank people for showing love,
Seeing dreams when I sleep at night,
Gotta - grab the moment and seize it tight,
At the - end of each dark tunnel is a beaming light,
That’s why I believe in life,
And if I … lead my life in a better way,
After I die I will be in a better place,
So many years spent searching for better days,
Trapped in a cage never certain I’d get away,
But I wanna celebrate why I’m breathing,
Coz I feel like I’m here for a reason,
And I’m one step nearer to freedom,
No matter what - I will keep on believing

Chorus

After all the rain I still believe,
The sun will shine again I will be free,
In the end I will fulfil my dreams,
No matter what - I still believe,
And I know anything is possible
if I have the will to succeed,
In the end I will fulfil my dreams,
I still believe, I still believe

Verse 2

It ain't over 'till it's over,
Life is a battlefield and we're soldiers,
And I told ya,
We're the champions holding the weight of the world on our shoulders,
They just want our dreams to fade,
There's only so much we can take,
But everything will be ok,
'Coz we don't care what people say,
I can see hope in your eyes,
And you're not alone when you cry Coz I know what its like,
To feel broken inside,
Most of my life I took the rough road to survive,
But it's cool coz I chose to embrace it,
Victory’s so close I can taste it,
My spirit is so strong no boulder could break it,
And that’s why I know that I’ll make it,

Chorus

After all the rain I still believe,
The sun will shine again I will be free,
In the end I will fulfil my dreams,
No matter what - I still believe,
And I know anything is possible
if I have the will to succeed,
In the end I will fulfil my dreams,
I still believe, I still believe

Break

When hope is gone - and the road is long,
We know we're strong so we soldier on,
I write these bars coz' sometimes it’s hard,
To find the stars when the skies are dark,
But I know anything is possible
if I have the will to succeed,
The grief is healing - life has a deeper meaning,
And that’s why I keep believing

Chorus

After all the rain I still believe,
The sun will shine again I will be free,
In the end I will fulfill my dreams,
No matter what - I still believe,
And I know anything is possible
if I have the will to succeed,
In the end I will fulfill my dreams,
I still believe, I still believe

Take My Hand

Written By: Sameer Khan

Verse 1

He wanders the path alone,
He's lost and feels like he's far from home,
But every time he turns around and stares he knows,
He doesn’t ever wanna go back there,
‘Coz over there … the feeling in his bones in cold,
A lonely soul, escape is his only goal,
So he faces his demons and battles them,
Sets himself free and never looks back again,
He's a dreamer – it’s hard to survive,
So he's working a 9 to 5 to stay alive,
He sighs - viewing life through tired eyes,
His smiling face a disguise … he cries inside,
But then she arrives like a shooting star,
And she sees right through his guard,
It feels unreal – she stands next to him,
Turns his world around as she says to him

Chorus

Call my name,
(show me how)
I'll take all your pain,
Dry your eyes,
(show me how)
I'll stay by your side,
Take my hand,
(show me how)
We can fly away,
You don’t have to be alone... Again

Verse 2

He's caught by surprise,
He never thought he could fly until the day she walked in his life,
He's so astounded,
She offers her hand - he doesn’t know how to go about it,
Coz he never shares his emotions and fears in the open,
Keeps them hidden – ‘coz he's scared they'd be broken,
Still somehow he feels like she knows his pain,
When she says he ain’t gotta be alone again,
She keeps his dreams alive,
Because of her he believes in life and things seem all right,
And she's the reason why he starts feeling like
he's complete inside,
But he's still searching for peace of mind,
From his past and grief he finds hard to leave behind,
He doesn’t tell her about his dark and sleepless nights,
She just wants him to know he doesn’t need to hide, she says

Chorus

Call my name,
(show me how)
I'll take all your pain,
Dry your eyes,
(show me how)
I'll stay by your side,
Take my hand,
(show me how)
We can fly away,
You don’t have to be alone... Again

Break

So one day he calls her name,
And she comes running in the pouring rain,
And once he dries his eyes
He realizes she makes him smile inside,
He thought his skies were grey,
But they aren’t … he's ready to fly away,
With no clue what fate has planned,
She waits for the day that he'll take her hand, she says

Chorus

Call my name,
(show me how)
I'll take all your pain,
Dry your eyes,
(show me how)
I'll stay by your side,
Take my hand,
(show me how)
We can fly away,
You don’t have to be alone... Again

Down

Written By: Sam K

Chorus

you said you'd always be always be DOWN
you said you'd always be always be DOWN
and even though it's all bout to fall DOWN
i'm still DOWN, i'm still DOWN
i can feel the rain coming rain coming DOWN
it pours DOWN, it pours DOWN
but i know it hurt you to let me DOWN
so i'm still DOWN, i'm still DOWN

Verse 1

it was all a dream
and now it's ended but friendship is out the question because you'll always mean more to me
we went from shining like the sun to being falling leaves
but i'm still here if you ever decide to call on me

it aint easy to forget because my heart remembers
with what we had we coulda made it through the harshest weather
sometimes i wish that we could have another chance together
coz secretly i believed that we could last forever

but now i suppose that the curtain has closed ... because of the road you chose to go down
with you time seemed to pass so fast but now that you're not around everythings slowed down
just want you to know that the feelings i hold inside me i swear they can never die down
down, down, down

Chorus

you said you'd always be always be DOWN
you said you'd always be always be DOWN
and even though it's all bout to fall DOWN
i'm still DOWN, i'm still DOWN
i can feel the rain coming rain coming DOWN
it pours DOWN, it pours DOWN
but i know it hurt you to let me DOWN
so i'm still DOWN, i'm still DOWN

Verse 2

but i never wrote this song coz im holding on
or to tell you what you chose was wrong, it's just even though you're gone
i can feel you near me, when i close my eyes i see you clearly
nothings changed i still love you dearly

but i'll always hope coz i don't believe that what goes up must come down
those broken dreams we both shared are still close to me i keep em deep down
just want you to know that the feelings i hold inside me i swear they can never die down
down., down. down

Chorus

you said you'd always be always be DOWN
you said you'd always be always be DOWN
and even though it's all bout to fall DOWN
i'm still DOWN, i'm still DOWN
i can feel the rain coming rain coming DOWN
it pours DOWN, it pours DOWN
but i know it hurt you to let me DOWN
so i'm still DOWN, i'm still DOWN

Outro

yes the rains the coming rains coming down
and im about to drown drown . . . drown
coz you're not around
your voice is gone but inside my mind i still hear the sound
im still down
like im in a circle and im going round round . . . round
im still down,
i guess im stil down
down, down
