Scarred

Written By: Kelly N.McGraw

Scarred

Written and Arranged by Wisdom aka Kelly N McGraw 2/4/10

Chorus a capella

God has blessed me
I’m in the light no longer dark
And now I can see
My heart has healed no longer scarred
God has blessed me
I’m in the light no longer dark
And now I can see
My heart has healed no longer scarred

There was a time in my life when I walked in darkness
Didn’t know how I was to get thru
I was full of drugs and alcohol and parties and clubs
Were the only things I wanted to do
I hurt myself, my family, friends my relationships came to an end
Didn’t care I was cruel
But god sent someone who often came around
Told me to look around helped turn my life around
Using god as my tool

God has blessed me
I’m in the light no longer dark
And now I can see
My heart has healed no longer scarred
God has blessed me
I’m in the light no longer dark
And now I can see
My heart has healed no longer scarred

I remember when growing up thinking that life would suck
Because bad things always happened to me
I was in a house full of total disrespect no real intellect
But plenty of neglect so I stayed in the streets
But then my name was known all over town
Body spread all around I was really going down
With no real love to receive
Then someone came and offered a helping hand
Told me to take a stand give praise to the man
His love is waiting for me

God has blessed me
I’m in the light no longer dark
And now I can see
My heart has healed no longer scarred

The Right Time

Written By: Kelly N.McGraw

The Right Time

Written and arranged by Wisdom Aka Kelly N. McGraw 8/11/10

Some people live their lives
Seeking permission from others
Husbands, sons, daughters, wives
Friends, cousins, and mothers
But there’s passion growing inside
You’re afraid to uncover
Cause failure put on your mind
So you won’t go discover

What are you waiting for?
The right time
There’s a world out there to explore
If you just free your mind
If you’re not living your full life
It’s a crime
What are you waiting for?
The right time

Time waits for no one
It goes on and on
Seconds, days, minutes, hours
Since the day you were born
Takes courage to walk on faith
Some people aren’t that strong
So they try to discourage you
Make you feel that you’re wrong

What are you waiting for?
The right time
There’s a world out there to explore
If you just free your mind
If you’re not living your full life
It’s a crime
What are you waiting for?
The right time

Some people just cannot see
What you could be what you could be
Some people whose mind not free
Just don’t believe just don’t believe
They cannot see they cannot see
What you could be what you could be
What you could be what you could be
What you could be what you could be

Chorus sung A capella

All You People

Written By: Kelly N.McGraw


All You People

Written and Arranged by Wisdom aka Kelly N. McGraw

Why do you waste so much time on somebody’s sex?
You just make the problems of the world a little bit more complex
What people do in their bedroom is their affair
So don’t act like what they do is a little too much for you to bare

Cause all you people really need to come together
Love each other our time is not forever
Different backgrounds different cultures
It doesn’t matter all you people the world is for us

Why do you waste so much time on somebody’s race?
Can’t judge a person by the color of their face
God put us all here in the hopes that we would share
So have peace and harmony to show that we do care

Cause all you people really need to come together
Love each other our time is not forever
Different backgrounds different cultures
It doesn’t matter all you people the world is for us

Why do you waste so much time selling drugs and guns?
Do you think hooking people and killing is something fun
You’re not alone on the earth you know you must share
Try being considerate of others and more aware

Repeat chorus

A Single Mother's Lullaby

Written By: Kelly N.McGraw


A Single Mother's Lullaby

Written and Arranged by Wisdom aka Kelly N. McGraw

Teenage mom with a little girl
Finished school and explored the world
No one there to hold your hand
You did it all without the help of a man

Mother I adore you
I’ll be there for you
Nobody loves me like you do
I know you’ll always be true

I got a little wild inside
The time I finished junior high
I really didn’t understand
How you handled the circumstance

Mother I adore you
I’ll always be there for you
Nobody loves me like you do
I know you’ll always be true

We had some problems in the past
I thank you father it didn’t last
I’m so glad we made amends
You’ll always be my best friend

Repeat chorus

Musical interlude

What I really want to say
There’s really no way to repay
You for what you’ve done for me
I love you and be happy

Repeat chorus

Welcome To Hollyhood

Written By: Kelly N.McGraw

Welcome To Hollyhood

Written and Arranged by Wisdom aka Kelly N McGraw 1/2/09

They come by bus or by car
Hoping to become a star
Think talent will get them far
But as they step on the scene
They see things aren’t what they seem
This town can really be mean

Welcome to hollyhood
Hood ,it’s no good, no good
Welcome to hollyhood
Hood ,it’s no good, no good

She really tried and she tried
To make her dreams come alive
Rejection made her feel empty inside
She was the girl from next door
Her neighbors really adored
But now she’s a hollyhood whore

Welcome to hollyhood
Hood, it’s no good no good
Welcome to hollyhood
Hood, it’s no good no good

In his town he’s the man
Had females flip in the stands
Do anything just to hold his hand
Now dime a dozen his mug
No jobs just parties and clubs
Now he’s hooked on all kinds of drugs

Welcome to hollyhood
Hood, it’s no good no good
Welcome to hollyhood
Hood, it’s no good no good
Welcome to hollyhood!

My Miracle

Written By: Kelly N.McGraw


My Miracle

Written and Arranged by Wisdom aka Kelly N McGraw 3/17/09

You’re some kind of miracle
And I just want the world to know
All of the things you do for me
You’re the man who paints my toes
Doesn’t care if the fellas know
Just as long as you’re making me happy

My miracle
I love you so
You mean so much to me
My miracle
I love you so
You mean so much to me

You pick me up when I’m feeling down
Handle things when I’m not around
Always there to with a helping hand for me
You cook me meals and you run my bath
Do silly things just to make me laugh
All to show just how much you care for me

My miracle
I love you so
You mean so much to me
My miracle
I love you so
You mean so much to me

There are men who could learn some things from you
Too many like to play those games but not you
They have good women but they don’t treat them right
I’m so glad god sent you in my life

Lonely days are no longer around
True love has now been found
You’re the only man I want to see
Peace and love I’m so content
I found a lover and my best friend
I never thought I could ever be so free

You’re my miracle
And I just want the world to know
All of the things you do for me
My miracle
I love you so
You mean so much to me


Still Be There

Written By: Kelly N.McGraw


Still Be There (A Country Duet)

Written and Arranged by Wisdom aka Kelly N.McGraw

Verse 1 Faith
There was a time we use to talk
We’d go outside to take a walk
You’d make a joke and I would laugh
We‘re headed on a good path
As time went by our love grew strong
I thought it’d last on and on
We were so close real good friends
So why are we at an end?

Chorus Faith
I wish that it could be
The way it was it use to be
I wish the love we shared
Would carry on still be there

Verse 2 Tim
I use to look into your eyes
And tell you how you’ve touched my life
Said you’re my girl and I’m your man
We’d pledge our love as we held hands
But now it seems we’ve grown apart
Hurt cut so deep it broke my heart
Please tell me what
What went wrong?
Another heart do you belong?

Chorus Tim
I wish that it could be
The way it was use to be
I wish the love we shared
Would carry on still be there

Musical interlude

Chorus Faith and Tim

I wish that it could be
The way it was it use to be
I wish the love shared
Would carry on still be there

Rebound

Written By: Kelly N.McGraw

Rebound

Written and Arranged by Wisdom aka Kelly N. McGraw

I know that I told you it was all about you
But I got to lay my cards on the table
I told you that my love was only for you
But to give you my heart I’m not able
You know when you met me I was feeling down
Cause my relationship was at an end
I shouldn’t have run into your arms
Cause what I really needed was friend

Rebound
I know that I’m hurting you
But I can no longer stay around
Because I don’t really love you
Rebound
I know it’s not fair to you
But I can no longer stay around
You deserve someone who’ll love you true

It’s hard for me to look into your eyes
Because I know how you feel about me
But I can no longer tell you lies
Because the truth is we’re not meant to be
Your mind is on the future
I’m stuck in the past
And I don’t know how long it’ll last
My ex is on my mind i can’t deny
And I want give him one more try

Rebound
I know that I’m hurting you
But I can no longer stay around
Because I don’t really love you
Rebound
I know it’s not fair to you
But I can no longer stay around
You deserve someone who’ll love you true

Musical interlude
