Lyrics

Listen to my friend

Written By: Laurence Wright

Listen to my friend (a song for peace by Lorenzo)
Chants
Peoples of the world, Will you not join me?
Preaching the gospel of humanity
Shoulder to shoulder, Linking hand in hand
Working together, to build the Promised Land
RAP
1st Verse
Listen to my friend he has something to say
And his words will sound like a sweet bouquet
He wants you to be his dearest friend
In this he's sincere, there is no pretend
He wants us all, to love one another
To treat our neighbour as our brother
It doesn't matter the colour of his skin
Just hold out your hands and all join in
2nd Verse
Listen to my friend he'll tell you what to do
There's nothing to fear nor misconstrue
Go in peace don't live by the sword
And my friend will give you his solemn word
If you care for all precious life
And carry a smile in the face of strife
You will be rich as any man can be
Living with my friend eternally
Bridge
Hate and fear will lead us to war and
Death and destruction will reign all our lives
Lift up your eyes, see the light and live together in peace
Hate and fear will lead us to war and
Death and destruction will reign all our lives
Lift up your eyes, see the light and live together in peace
Live in peace
Live in peace (Listen, to my friend)
Live in peace!
3rd Verse
Who is your friend? I hear you all ask
Well it’s not a secret and there is no mask
He's all around us he is everywhere
He's the one who will listen to your prayer
We have many names for this friend
We may believe but we can't transcend
He is the compassion in your soul
He is the angst you cannot control
4th Verse
He is the sun you feel upon your face
The gentle touch, of a warm embrace
He is all the things that are good in you
And all that he asks is you let it shine through
And if all this you don't comprehend
Listen to these words of my very good friend
"Just one kind act performed each day
Will make your life richer, in every way"
Coda
Remember
Just one kind act performed each day

The Bleeding of my heart

Written By: Laurence Wright

Verse 1
I play the music but my house sounds of emptiness
The fire rages but I feel cold
Since you have gone then so has my happiness
I have been left with no-one to hold
Stranded like a fish out of water
Every second my life’s getting shorter

Chorus
Roses in bloom, sun in the sky
A glass of red, red wine
And the cooing of love birds still thrills me
When you left it tore me apart
And the grapes rot on the vine
But the bleeding of my heart won’t kill me.

Verse 2
I walk the streets but the crowds don’t notice me
They are too busy with their own lives
Could I have chosen my own misery
I would be cut by a thousand knives
Stranded like a fish out of water
Every second my lifes getting shorter

Chorus

Bridge
Somehow I must get through this
Find my future in the mist
So my darling I send you my last kiss

Chorus

Sun Rising

Written By: Laurence Wright

Sun Rising

A song by Laurence Wright

Verse 1

Since time began man has fought through fear and for greed
And when at war he’s also killed mother natures seed
As the bombs explode the earth is scarred by this awful fight
And all can see the victors will be the victims of this terrible blight

Chorus

Sun Rising, shining down on earth
Sun Rising, what is life worth?
Sun Rising, helping us to grow
Perhaps until we die we just won’t know.

Verse 2

And when at peace man has ravaged the forests and the seas
He’s taken all the fishes and he’s timbered all the trees
He’s filled the air with the stench of smog in his rush to succeed
And then he’s dumped his waste and left the earth - he’s left the earth to bleed

Chorus

Instrumental

Verse 3

And man is remorseless as he marches to his fate
He must soon see the harm he’s done before it is to late
How can there be any doubt that some good must be done
If we are to prevent the setting of our rising sun

Chorus

End
words in brackets optional
Sun Rising, (shining down on earth)
Sun Rising (what is life worth?)
Sun setting is it now to late?
Perhaps .(spoken)
