PEOPLE

WORLD THAT SURROUNDS ME
NEEDS A HEALTHY DOSE OF CHANGE

EVERY TIME
I TRIED TO SPEAK OUT LOUD
THEY’D FIRST PUT ME DOWN
AS IF I WERE NOBODY
AND EVERY TIME
I TRIED TO LIVE MY LIFE
THEY WOULD NOT LET ME START
TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT

WORLD THAT SURROUNDS ME
NEEDS A HEALTHY DOSE OF CHANGE

BUT SOME ONES
BEAT THE ADVERSITY
JUST BY STANDING FIRM
AND MAKE THEM UNDERSTAND IT
SO I AM NOW
READY TO REARRANGE MY LIFE
MORE LIKE ME WILL RISE
TO MAKE A CHANGE

WORLD THAT SURROUNDS ME
NEEDS A HEALTHY DOSE OF CHANGE

PEOPLE THAT FOUND DREAMS

Unspoken Words

Written By: Joan Pla

UNSPOKEN WORDS

I AM DEAF
AND I SLAMMED THE DOOR
BUT THERE’S A WHISPER
SCREAMING TO BE HEARD
I DIDN’T THINK IT WOULD HURT

I SMILE
BECAUSE I SEE WHITE HAIR
MARKS THAT REVEAL
THE SIGNS OF UNSPOKEN WORDS
HIDDEN SIGNIFICANCE

LIGHT OF A CANDLE
REFLECTING IN A MIRROR
THERE HE IS
THE ONE WHO IS ME
I FOUND MYSELF AGAIN

CUSTOM DREAMS
YOU TALK OUT LOUD
OF WHAT YOU GAVE UP INSIDE
TO RECOGNIZE IT
KILLS YOU
SO YOU RATHER DREAM A LIE

ALL BEHIND EACH MASK
THE MEANING LOST
AWAY FROM YOUR MOUTH
AND YOU CAN’T REMEMBER WHY

CUSTOM DREAMS
YOU TALK OUT LOUD
OF WHAT YOU GAVE UP INSIDE
TO RECOGNIZE IT
KILLS YOU
SO YOU RATHER DREAM A LIE

Just For Today

Written By: Joan Pla

JUST FOR TODAY

BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT
BE THE ONE YOU WANNA BE
YOU HAVE TO SEE
THERE’S NO FUTUTRE
IN THE BED OF TIME
PAST ALREADY DIED

HERE. NOW. CONSCIOUSLY
I STAND TO BE FREE
AND YOU SHOULD HEAR ME

JUST FOR TODAY
I’LL BE ALRIGHT
I live every second
Like nothing can stop me
One day at a time
JUST FOR TODAY
I’LL SEAZE LIFE
I enjoy every moment
Like nothing can stop me
One day at a time

HOW YOUR EYES WILL SEE
IF THEY’RE SLAVES OF LIES?
ONLY NOW HIDES
SECRETS OF YOUR TRUE LIFE’S PATH
LIVE THE PRESENT TIME

FOOL! YOU JUST BELIEVE
JUST STAND TO BE FREE
AND NOW JUST HEAR ME

Before Dawn

Written By: Joan Pla

BEFORE DAWN

I AM THE SILENCE
LOST IN THE CROWD
I AM THE MOMENT
THE SUN GOES DOWN
I WONDER NOW
IF I BELONG HERE
I COULD GO ALONE
WHERE THE STARS DISAPPEAR

I SEE THROUGH YOUR EYES
FULL OF LOVE AND PEACE
THEY TALK ABOUT LIFE
THEY’RE MY REASON TO LIVE

I AM THE BULLET
ABOUT TO BE SHOT
I AM THE LION
THAT IS NEVER CAUGHT
I WONDER NOW
IF I BELONG HERE
I COULD JUST GO
WHERE THE STARS DISAPPEAR

I SEE THROUGH YOUR EYES
FULL OF LOVE AND PEACE
THEY TALK ABOUT LIFE
THEY’RE MY REASON TO LIVE
