Sapphyre

 Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA
BandPopSinger/Songwriter

I am the chameleon songstress that can produce a hit in just about every genre. I am very eclectic musically, although I am rooted in Blues, R&B, and gospel. Whatever I create is bound to be unforgettable and overflowing with conviction.

Biography

My name is Schivon a.k.a Sapphyre. Sometimes I hum a melody almost out of thin air and suddenly it has been transformed into a catchy song. Sometimes, my songs come to me in a dream and haunt me from the time that I wake up until I go back to bed. Yet, other times, I hear an instrumental and it is almost as if the beat has already written the song and is just using me to transcribe it.

I am a musical chameleon. I can easily write from the male or female perspective. Or from the wise and experienced point of view, to that of the young and innocent. While I favor writing songs in the R&B, Dance, and Pop genres, I have written hypnotic and memorable hits in the country, gospel, rap/Hip-hop, and alternative genres. I love to be stretched and challenged. I also love to sample and integrate aspects of songs from great artists of the past. I foresee that my songs will not only top charts and receive awards, but will also be featured on television and in films across the globe.

My biggest influences are: Mary J. Blidge, Aretha Franklin, Donna Summers,B.B. King, Nancy White, Chaka Khan, Elton John, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Red Hot Chili Peppers, George Thurgood, NWA, Tupac, Aaliyah,E-40, Ice Cube, Pink Floyd, Blondie, B52's, Carly Simon, Nas, Jay Z, Celene Dion, Gloria Estafan, Nelly, Dr. Dre, Crucial Conflict, R. Kelly, Christina Aguilera,Billie Holiday and many others.

I have been writing poems, songs, and stories since I was a young child, with my first published work occurring at age eight. My recently published novel-Windy City Woes- is in the process of being converted to a screen-play. Needless to say, I was born to write.

Go For Mine

Written By: Saphhyre

Go For Mine
By: Schivon Braswell
A.K.A Sapphyre

Intro: (Chanting) Ooh, ooh, oh-oh-oh/ Ooh, ooh, ooh, yeah-ah
Verse1:
You told me, that we was gonna make this work/ (work, work, work,)/ All you give me is pain and stress and hurt/ (yeah-ah) I know that I’m not perfect, but I just don’t deserve this/ And I can do bad all by myself/ I know it’s just not worth it, to put up with your bulls**t/ It’s time to move on to someone else
Hook:
I’m tired of tryna make it work/ And putting up with all the hurt/ Took a while but now I see/ Gotta do what’s best for me/ You’ll be sorry when you realize/ You lost the best thing in your life/ May as well go for yours, cause I’m about to go for mine/ Go, go for mine
Verse 2:
Its amazing, all the things I put up with/Like your lies, your debt, your women, your kids/(No, no, no) I’m strong and independent/ And I refuse to roll with/ A life of settling for less/ The Lord is my witness/ It does not make a difference/ If now you start to try your best/
Hook:
I’m tired of tryna make it work/ And putting up with all the hurt/ Took a while but now I see/ Gotta do what’s best for me/ You’ll be sorry when you realize/ You lost the best thing in your life/ May as well go for yours, cause I’m about to go for mine/ Go, go for mine
Outro:
You may as well go for yours, cause I'm about to go for mine/ go, go for mine/You may as well go for yours, cause I'm about to go for mine/ go, go for mine/You may as well go for yours, cause I'm about to go for mine/ go, go for mine/I'm about to go for mine/ I'm, I'm about to go for mine.

Tomorrow’s Not Promised
By: Schivon Braswell
A.K.A Sapphyre

Verse 1:
Feel asleep late last night, after our argument/ But I woke up just as mad, shoulda just forgave you then/ I stare at you still sleeping/ And I replay last night's words/ Of how I hate you so much, I saw how much that hurt/

Verse 2:
Hop in the car, tears streaming, foot pumping real hard on the gas/ My minds all cloudy, I'm heading nowhere but I seem to be getting there fast/ Then... outta nowhere a bright light shines in my face/ Now I wish I could say I love you, before I leave this place/

Hook:
Tomorrow’s not promised/ today could be your last just/ love while you can/ Tomorrow’s not promised/ Today could be your last just/ forgive when you can/ Tomorrow’s not guaranteed to you or me/ No...

Bridge:

Hurt So Bad
By: Schivon Braswell
A.K.A. Sapphyre

Hook:

The words that we say, the things that do/ Makes me so sad, 'cause love it hurts so bad/ Dreamed of a day, a day without you/ Still makes me mad, 'cause love it hurts so bad

Verse 1:

It's storming outside but I/ rather be there than inside/'Cause it kinda mirrors my life/I'm struggling with my baby/ We used to keep it so 100 proof/ you'd balance out my jaded views/Now it's changed so what do I do/ I love him, though its crazy

Hook: 1 x

Verse 2:

Round 5 and I'm tiring out/ Do I stay in or tap out/ Can't figure the formula out, though we've done this for so long, so long/ Wish I could find the missing piece/ or rewind to the beginning/ Please say this aint the end/ Baby please stay strong

Hook: 1 x

Bridge:

It's raining, it's storming/My poor heart is yearning for better days/It's storming and raining/ I'm pleading and praying/ We'll be okay (Repeat)

Ring Me Up
By: Schivon Braswell
A.K.A Sapphyre

You can ring my bell, ring my bell

Verse 1 :

Baby boy you can ring me/Matter fact bring me/ To that secret place where lovers go/ There you can seduce me/ Perhaps introduce me/To some freaky things I aint seen before
I'm sincerely hoping that you use/ your detective skills, follow the clues/Yes I'm feeling you as you can tell/ The time has come to ring my bell, please ring my bell

Hook:
You can ring my bell, ring my bell (4 x)

Verse 2:

I know, you know that you tease me/ Don't be cruel, please me/ And surely I'll do the same for you/Got visions in my head, tell me your fantasy/Anything you ask of me I'll do/
At first we took things slow, but times have changed/Please don't stop until I scream your name/ It was worth the wait as you can tell/The time has come to ring my bell/Please ring my bell/

Hook:
You can ring my bell, ring my bell (ring my bell, ding dong, ding dong)
You can ring my bell, ring my bell (Ahhhhhh)
You can ring my bell, ring my bell (ring my bell, ding dong, ding dong)
You can ring my bell, ring my bell (Ahhhhhh)

Rap:
Please baby you can r-i-n-g me/ But do things discreetly/ Or else I shall forced to delete thee/From the list/ Of the gracious few blessed with this/ Now kiss my lips (both pair)/ Now grab my hips(right there) oh yeah/ Daddy, please don't rush/Cause I want you way too much/And if you can make me blush/ Then I know you can make me gush/ And if you can make me gush, then I know you can make me sing/My ears will ring/ All the while my body's tingling/I'm being blunt but hell, you want it too/ And if you already my buddy/ Why not buddy-lover-boo/ If you can put in work and go the distance time will tell/ Act like the hunchback and ring my bell, ring my bell.

Hook:
You can ring my bell, ring my bell (ring my bell, ding dong, ding dong)
You can ring my bell, ring my bell (Ahhhhhh)
You can ring my bell, ring my bell (ring my bell, ding dong, ding dong)
You can ring my bell, ring my bell (Ahhhhhh)

God's been good

Written By: Sapphyre

Intro: As I look back over my life, and I reminisce and recollect. I may not yet be where I want to be, but thank you Jesus I'm not where I used to be

Verse: Growing up as a little girl, at times I had my problems/ I did not know which way to go/ or how I would solve them/ A friend told me about the King, she said His name is Jesus/ He gave His life that I might live, if only I'd receive

But I fought night and day/ tried to go my own way/ till I realized I could not face the pain/When I leaned on God's word, all my joy was restored/ And that's why He deserves all my Praise

Hook: Cause God's been good to me/Oh yeah/ The Blood has set me free

Verse 2: Even saints have trials/ believers sometimes stumble/ But thankfully God's love and grace is here to keep us humble/ As you trek on in life remember this one truth/ There's nothing you can do to keep God from loving you

So don't fight night and day/ don't you go your own way/ Cause you'll realize that you can't face the pain/ When you lean on God's word/ All your joy will be restored/ And that's why He deserves all our praise

Hook

Bridge: I just gotta tell you why, just gotta tell you I... I love you/ I just gotta tell you why, just gotta tell you I... I love you/Lord cause you loved me first/ Took me up out the dirt/ And placed me back on my feet/ now I cannot believe the amazing way you are loving me (repeat)

Hook (repeat)
