Lyrics

America

Written By: words and music by Tristen Gaspadarek

Wednesday is a busy day with all it's ups and downs for her to know
And fair well to her hopes and dreams she said "I laid them down a long time ago.
And the distance between freedom and equality is a space easily defined.
Just take a long look at the man who made all his money from all this hard work of mine."

 America the free to widen up the gap
Between those who need and those who always have
But I never read about this in my book.

 She tried to use her vote today to get someone who would listen to her needs
Get some money in the schools, give them a fair chance,
get these kids off the streets
But she works her second job from four to nine and you know the polls they close at five.
We wouldn't need affirmative action in this uphill climb if the system was fine.

Never read about it in my book
And I never learned about this in my school
How can we change the world around us with our children,
If they never learn about it in the place where seeds are planted
In a time when change can happen and it should
How do we never learn about it in...

America this can't be, I won't let this be the end
Because I believe something better is in our destiny
But I never read about this in my book, in my book.

My Right

Written By: music by Kurt Miller and Tristen Gaspdarek, words by Tristen Gaspadarek

 You want the world to go faster, 'cause you wanna stay here forever

You keep the girls on elastic, but you can't keep all this past her

Once more into my head, you're planting the thoughts I dread

But it knows the place where it should go; your veil can't stop this strength to show

 

But I don't hear you anymore and you can't push it any deeper

We won't, we won't hear it anymore cause this strength runs deeper than you will know

 
CHORUS:

How will we survive when the fight is won?

How will we drive when the race is done?

'Cause we have spent our lives in the dark of the night,

Waiting for the day when we won't have to fight, to prove the right

 

There's no more room for improvement, but we've got so far to go

And all complaints kept elusive 'cause that's just the way it goes

Once more into my head your choking my spirit dead

But your pressing feeds the fire and opposition fills our desire

 

But I don't hear you anymore and you can't push it any deeper

We won't, we won't hear it anymore cause this strength runs deeper than you will know

 

CHORUS

Day by Day

Written By: words and music by Tristen Gaspadarek

If I could give myself just one wish

I'd wish to make some time

If I could give my heart away

You know you're on my mind

If quick falls and heartaches passed through me

I'd stay right by your side

 
CHORUS:

Day by day the world goes 'round

Bit by bit it all falls down around me

And like the moon you hide and shine

A pretty face in my mind

And I find myself lost in you

And I find myself lost in you

 

A lifetime spent chasing love when all I ever needed

Was right here in front of my eyes

I wasted so much time searching my soul

Never knowing what to find

A deeper meaning, a stronger cause, a better feeling

I wanna feel it all.

 

CHORUS
 

If I could give myself just one wish

I'd wish to make some time

If I could give my heart away

You know you're on my mind

I'll stay right by your side

 

CHORUS
