Before I Cry

Written By: Shelby Schulz

I never thought I'd have to say goodbye to you
I never thought that you would leave
But now I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do
Or who I'm supposed to be
My world is spinning and I cant find the ground
But if I had you to help me I might find a way out
So now I'm drowning here and I can't swim
Caught in life's rapids without him
And if this darkness lingers I will die
So go on leave me now before I cry
I've never been one to wear my heart on my sleeve
Or one to just break down
But losses make us bitter indeed
Pounding our fists into the ground
So now I'm drowning here and I can't swim
Caught in life's rapids without him
And if this darkness lingers I will die
So hurry leave me now or I will cry
This water's deep but Ill try to get a grip and stand
I'll try to make things right
Ill think about it and miss your helping hand
But I'll keep reaching toward the light
So now I'm drifting here and I can't swim
Caught in life's rapids without him
This darkness wont stay here and I wont die
You can leave me now but I'll still cry
I'm strong enough to stand but I'll still cry

The View from Where I'm Standing

Written By: Shelby Schulz

I've had my ups I've had my downs
I've been beat up and thrown down
I've cried tears tht felt like they would never stop
But now I'm standing here forgiving all my sins
I've got blue skies above me
And good friends that love me so
Don't you try to bring me down
I've got a bag of smiles and a
Few long whiles
Don't you rain on my parade
And they say the grass is greener on the side you'll never be
But the view from where I'm standing's looking pretty green to me
There's always people who will steal your fight
Try to make yu lose all hope
Try to convince you that your not worth a thing
But I hope that you know better than that
I've got blue skies above me and
Good friends that love me so
Don't you try to bring me down
I've got a bag of smiles and a
Few long whiles
Don't you rain on my parade
And they say the grass is greener on the side you'll never be
But the view from where I'm standing's looking pretty green to me
And I know life's a burden that is often hard to bear
And I know that sometimes its easier just not to care
But remember your responsible for making yourself smile
And when the clouds clear away oh the sun is so worthwhile
I've got blue skies above me and
Good friends that love me so
Don't you try to bring me down
I've got a bag of smiles and a
Few long whiles
Don't you rain on my parade
And they say the grass is greener on the side you'll never be
But the view from where I'm standing's looking pretty green to me
Yeah the view from where we're standing's looking pretty green to me

Take Some Time (To Smell the Roses)

Written By: Shelby Schulz

A wise man once told me
to keep my chin up
to never let bad days
pull me down
I brushed off
his thoughtful advice
but all he could do was nod and frown
He said young lady
I was once young myself
feeling self pity just like you
but then a wise man told me that smiling through the tears is the only way to see the sun shine through

So take some time to take a walk
to watch and wait, enjoy the view
because life moves way too fast to be unenjoyed by you
So go on dance in the rain and
sit in the warm sunshine
stop and wait and look around
'cause to smell the roses takes some time

That wise man has gone and left
his song ringing in my ears
his words of wisdom
taken for granted
not they're the only thing I hear

So take some time to take a walk to watch and wait enjoy the view
Because life moves way too fast to be unenjoyed by you
So go on dance in the rain
and sit in the warm sunshine
Stop and wait and look around 'cause to smell the roses takes some time
