BandSpoken Word

My songs are my poetry, real life everyday pain I endure as a mother, student, and child of God.

Biography

I have been writing seen I was 13 and have everything saved in notebooks as well as on disk thumbs. My poems range from love to hate, raps to spoken words that have been performed as well as random thoughs.
Why am I so different? My enviornments shaped me and I came out of many molds. My mom is a white Cape Verdean my dad is southern Black and ALL of my family raised me.

Lyrics

Faded Love

Written By: Tayla Lantz Ward

Chorus
Rainbows come and go
Not all rivers continue to flow
What goes up must come down
Love doesn’t always work the second time around

Verse
Like the sun reflecting off the snow our love was bright
Everything you did everything you said was oh so right
Sweet words deep eyes
Helped me realize
You were mine as I was yours
Hand in hand as we complete our chores
Feeding one another till we got full
No games of tug of war we both pulled
We never needed to fuss
Our teamwork created an us

Chorus
Rainbows come and go
Not all rivers continue to flow
What goes up must come down
Love doesn’t always work the second time around

Verse
Things slowly took a turn
The once coolness started to burn
Dullness came from the once bright
Happiness was crushed from a daily fight
Evil eyes made others cry
Nasty comments cracked like cement
Conversations turned to silence
Asking God for guidance
What am I to do?
With faded love for you

Bridge
Faded love takes place after couples fall
A lifetime is longer then the night at the ball
Cinderella is only a fairy tale
While faded love can feel like jail
A broken heart is the way to post bail
Pack your bags and set sail
Being part of faded love hurts
Being single has a more perks

Verse
If I could change the times and rearrange life lines
I would do it again with a different twist
Fight anger with love and not with fist
Right my wrongs so I wouldn’t have to write this song
Keep the rainbow in the shy
Enjoy the rivers flowing wide
Pretend gravity doesn’t exists
Maybe I’d still have my prince
Love only works if you want it to
So attempt to make it work between you two
