Lyrics

Open

Written By: Shyla Marie

Verse 1

I’m open to your message, I’m holding on to you
I’m open to your courage; I’m hoping it pulls me through
I’m open to your warm arms so you can hold me through the night

I’m open to your knowledge so you can educate my mind
I’m open to your heart so I can never fall apart
I’m open to your love; I’m open to your love

Never will I be closed mind again
I’m leaping into deep water
But you’ll help me swim
I know I’ve never been one to throw caution to the wind
But this feels so good I’ve got to give in

Chorus
Because I’m open to your love
(Never gonna guard my inner soul)
I’m open to your love
(It won’t be hard to take control)
Because I’m open to your love
I’m never gonna let you go
Naturally free, I ‘m now open to be

Verse 2

I’m open to tranquility that you bring to my soul and mind
I’m open to our start just hold my hand don’t break my heart
I’m open to your spark that lit up a flame inside my heart

Never will I be frozen in time
I’m down for moving forward, I’ll do it one step at a time
I know I’ve never been one to throw caution to the wind
But this feels so good I’ve got to give in.

Repeat Chorus one time through

Bridge

You came and you changed my story
Of the pages of my life
You rewrote every tragic ending so that I would be alright
You broke the fortress of steal around my heart
Verse 3
And that’s why I’m open to your message I’m holding on to you
I’m open to your courage; I’m hoping it pulls me through
I’m open to your love I’m open to your love
Chorus till the end

When it came

Written By: Shyla Marie

Verse 1
Wasn’t expecting it
When it came
Seemed to be looking for another heart to claim
I said no no not me
I‘ve gone through too much
And I can’t afford to end up right where I left off
Alone in this bed, with a heart I have to mend
So let’s not pretend that you’ve got the cure
But there’s something about you that has me intrigued
Is that something that will bring me to my knees?

Chorus

That’s when it came
And it took a hold of me
I just couldn’t see
That love has stopped playing tricks on me
Erasing my heart slate clean
So I could conceive
What I was waiting for was right in front of me

Verse 2
Allowed me to be pleased
And leave me with some dignity
Because your track record is not so hot you see
If you think you’re going to put a hold on me
Why did you have to come when I can not fight?
When I am worn out from the battle before.
Is it because I’m easy to defeat?
Do you have another plan yet in store?

Chorus

That’s when it came
And it took a hold of me
I just couldn’t see
That love has stopped playing tricks on me
Erasing my heart slate clean
So that I could conceive
What I was waiting for was right in front of me

Bridge
I won’t pretend I don’t want to do this
But the truth is I’m scared
Promise me it will all work out in the end
And love will win my heart again

Chorus
That’s when it came
And it took a hold of me
I just couldn’t see
That love has stopped playing tricks on me
Erasing my heart slate clean
So that I could conceive
What I was waiting for was right in front of me

Love Will Find A Way
Written By Shyla Marie & Randi Driscoll

Verse 1

They say rainy days won’t last forever
But in my world they last for days
If I make a change for the better
Things will turn out a different way

Pre Chorus
Living my life like the pages of a book that I have known
Trapped by the fear of knowing I’ll be all alone

Chorus

But love will find a way
It tears down the walls you’ve been hiding behind for so long
And if you can seize the day and find the strength
Accept this new world in your heart
Love will find a way

Verse 2

Trapped by the fear of indecision
Watching the years just tick away
Trying to get my life on a path worth living
So I guess that has to begin today

Pre Chorus

Everyday is a struggle
Keeping my feet on solid ground
But all I do is turn to you to keep me safe and sound

Chorus

But love will find a way
It tears down the walls you’ve been hiding behind for so long
And if you can seize the day and find the strength
Accept this new world in your heart
Love will find a way

Bridge

Love never gives up
It’s always hopeful
It endures through every circumstance
There are three things that endure
Hope, Faith and Love
Everybody sing it out with me (Adlib)
Chorus

Love will find a way (Background)
It tears down the walls you hiding behind for so long
And if you can seize the day (background) and find the strength
Accept this new world in your heart
Love will find a way

All Background
Love will find a way
It tears down the walls you hiding behind for so long
And if you can seize the day and find the strength
Accept this new world in your heart
Love will find a way

So I guess my rainy day won’t last forever

Can U Handle

Can You Handle
Lyrics Written by :Shyla Marie
Music Written By Shyla Marie & Randi Driscoll
Genre: Contemporary Christian

Verse 1
We’re getting side tracked
I am watching our foundation slip from under us
And we’re letting lusifer get the best of us
And we have the power to stop him
It’s called choice
And the man upstairs trusted we could handle it
He gave us a new life so we should honor him
And we repay him by living in sin
Pre chorus
Don’t over think this thing
Or let your brain get in the way
It’s as simple as child at play
We’ve got to get our heads on straight
Don’t live these last days in vain

Chorus
Can U handle (Background)
All the pressure that the media is giving us
Can U handle (Background)
All the nightmares of devestation on the news
Can U handle (background)
Can we pay the dues of a lifetime of suffering?
Can you hear the good news Jesus is coming soon.

.

Verse 2
They told me to be quiet
They told me to blend in Don’t cause a ruckus
Because theres people living in fear from the truth
That’s when you should ask him to appear

Can you feel his presence?
Such a clear and ever calm has just come over me
And I’m finally free from negativity
God is really speaking through me through my writing

Pre chorus

Don’t over think this thing
Or let your brain get in the way
It’s as simple as child at play
We’ve got to get our heads on straight
Don’t live these last days in vain

Chorus
Can U handle (Background)
All the pressure that the media is giving us
Can U handle (Background)
All the nightmares of devestation on the news
Can U handle (background)
Can we pay the dues of a lifetime of suffering?
Did you hear the good news Jesus is coming soon.

Bridge

Children’s molestation
Politicians of this nations abusing their power leaves a bad taste in my mouth
Ignoring wars upon this earth as if they’ve never taken place
How much more can we take
When will we figure it out

Chorus
Can U handle (Background)
All the pressure that the media is giving us
Can U handle (Background)
All the nightmares of devestation on the news
Can U handle (Background)
Can we pay the dues of a lifetime of suffering?
Did you hear the good news Jesus is coming soon.

Verse 3
We ‘re can’t be side track
Keep up with the race for our own good
We’ve been giving all the tools spread it through the neighborhood
We’re responsible for everyone in brotherhood
