Man in the Mirror


written by: Siedah Garrett and  Glen Ballard

I’m Gonna Make A Change,

For Once In My Life
It’s Gonna Feel Real Good,
Gonna Make A Difference
Gonna Make It Right . . .As I, Turn Up The Collar On My
Favourite Winter Coat
This Wind Is Blowin’ My Mind
I See The Kids In The Street,
With Not Enough To Eat
Who Am I, To Be Blind?
Pretending Not To See
Their Needs
A Summer’s Disregard,
A Broken Bottle Top
And A One Man’s Soul
They Follow Each Other On
The Wind Ya’ Know
‘Cause They Got Nowhere
To Go
That’s Why I Want You To
KnowI’m Starting With The Man In
The Mirror
I’m Asking Him To Change
His Ways
And No Message Could Have
Been Any Clearer
If You Wanna Make The World
A Better Place
(If You Wanna Make The
World A Better Place)
Take A Look At Yourself, And
Then Make A Change
(Take A Look At Yourself, And
Then Make A Change)
(Na Na Na, Na Na Na, Na Na,
Na Nah)I’ve Been A Victim Of A Selfish
Kind Of Love
It’s Time That I Realize
That There Are Some With No
Home, Not A Nickel To Loan
Could It Be Really Me,
Pretending That They’re Not
Alone?A Willow Deeply Scarred,
Somebody’s Broken Heart
And A Washed-Out Dream
(Washed-Out Dream)
They Follow The Pattern Of
The Wind, Ya’ See
Cause They Got No Place
To Be
That’s Why I’m Starting With
Me
(Starting With Me!)I’m Starting With The Man In
The Mirror
(Ooh!)

Then Make A Change

Then Make A Change)I’m Starting With The Man In
The Mirror

Ways

Spread Love


I know somebody who declares he has it made
He won’t admit it, but it’s just a masquerade
He’s a modern-day deceiver
With a case of falsehood fever
What a shame, it’s just a game

And then there’s good ol’ sister Sarah
Ain’t she sweet? (Oh, yes she is)
She gets the world, next thing you know it’s in the street
By the time it’s been repeated
All the truth has been deleted
What a shame, another game

Seems like everything we hear is just a tale
But I’ve got something that will never, ever fail
(It’s called love)

Chorus:
Spread love, instead of spreading lies
Spread love, the truth needs no disguise
I’ve often said love could open any door
Oh, but I wish we had much more
More love is what we need

Then there’s a family that we’ll just call “the Greens”
(How ‘bout ‘em?)
They have subscriptions to the gossip magazines
With a twisted sense of vision
They treat rumors like religion
What a shame, it’s the “same-o’-same-o’”
Well, it seemes like everything we hear is just a tale
But I believe in something that will never fail

Repeat Chorus

What the world needs now…
(I’m tellin’ you love is what we need)
… is love, more love is what we need
What the world needs now is love…
(We need more love)
… more love is what we need

Repeat chorus 3 times

Impossible Dream


written by: (composer) Mitch Leigh (lyrics) Joe Darion

To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
And to run where
the brave dare not go
To right the unrightable wrong
And to love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star
This is my quest
To follow that star
No matter how hopeless
No matter how far
To fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to
march into hell
For that heavenly cause
And I know
If I’ll only be true
To this glorious quest
That my heart
Will lie peaceful and calm
When I’m laid to my rest
And the world will be
better for this
That one man, scorned
and covered with scars,
Still strove with his last
ounce of courage
To dream the impossible dream;
and to reach the unreachable star.
The Unreachable star.

Smile


written by: Charlie Chaplin

Smile though your heart is aching’
smile even though it breaking
when there are clouds
in the sky you’ll get by
If you smile with you fear and sorrow
smile and maybe tomorrow
You’ll find that life is still worth while if you
just….

Light up your face with gladness
hide every trace of sadness
all though a tear my be ever so near
That the time we must keep on trying
smile what the use of crying
You’ll find that life is still worth while if you just
smile

That the time we must keep on trying smile what the use
of crying you’ll find that life is still worth while
IF YOU JUST SMILE 🙂

You’ve Got a Friend


written by: Carole King

When your down and troubled
And you need some loving care
And nothing, whoa nothing is going right.
Close your eyes and think of me
And soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest nights.
You just call out my name,
And you know wherever I am
I’ll come running
To see you again.
Winter, Spring , Summer, or Fall,
All you have to do is call
And I’ll be there, yeah, yes I’ll be there.
You’ve got a friend.
If the sky above you
Should turn dark and full of clouds
And that old north wind should begin to blow
Keep your head together and call my name out loud
And soon you’ll hear me knocking upon your door.
You just call out my name and you know wherever I am
I’ll come running to see you again.
Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall
All you got to do is call
And I’ll be there, yes I’ll be there,
Now, ain’t it good to know that you’ve got a friend
People can be so cold.
They’ll hurt you, yes and desert you.
They’ll take your soul if you let them.
Oh now, don’t you let them.
You just call out my name and you know wherever I am
I’ll come running (just as fast as I can) to see you again.
Oh don’t you know that,
Winter Spring Summer or Fall,
All you’ve got to do is call.
I’ll be there, yes I will.
You’ve got a friend.
You’ve got a friend.
Ain’t it good to know you’ve got a friend.
Ain’t it good to know you’ve got a friend.
You’ve got a friend

Beautiful


written by: Linda Perry

Every day is so wonderful
And suddenly it’s hard to breathe
Now and then I get insecure
From all the pain, feel so ashamed

I am beautiful no matter what they say
Words can’t bring me down
I am beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can’t bring me down, oh no
So don’t you bring me down today

To all your friends you’re delirious
So consumed in all your doom
Tryin’ hard to fill the emptiness, the piece is gone
Left the puzzle undone, ain’t that the way it is?

‘Cause you are beautiful no matter what they say
Words can’t bring you down, oh no
You are beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can’t bring you down, oh no
So don’t you bring me down today

No matter what we do
No matter what we do
(No matter what we say)
No matter what we say
(We’re the song that’s outta tune)
(Full of beautiful mistakes)

(And everywhere we go)
And everywhere we go
(The sun will always shine)
The sun will always, always shine!
(But tomorrow we might awake on the other side)

‘Cause we are beautiful no matter what they say
Yes, words won’t bring us down, oh no
We are beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can’t bring us down, oh no
So don’t you bring me down today

Don’t you bring me down today
Don’t you bring me down today

Cry


written by: R. Kelly

[Verse 1]
Somebody shakes when the wind blows
Somebody’s missing a friend, hold on
Somebody’s lacking a hero
And they have not a clue
When it’s all gonna end

[Verse 2]
Stories buried and untold
Someone is hiding the truth, hold on
When will this mystery unfold
And will the sun ever shine
In the blind man’s eyes when he cries?

[Chorus:]
You can change the world (I can’t do it by myself)
You can touch the sky (Gonna take somebody’s help)
You’re the chosen one (I’m gonna need some kind of sign)
If we all cry at the same time tonight

[Verse 3]
People laugh when they’re feelin sad
Someone is taking a life, hold on
Respect to believe in your dreams
Tell me where were you
when your children cried last night?

[Verse 4]
Faces fill with madness
Miracles unheard of, hold on
Faith is found in the winds
All we have to do
Is reach for the truth

[Chorus]

And when that flag blows
There’ll be no more wars
And when all calls
I will answer all your prayers

[Chorus x3]

Change the world
