Lukas Graham (cover) by Maddie Wilson & Ashlund Jade – Mama Said

Lyrics
When mama said that is was okay
Mama said that is was quite alright
Our kind of people had a bed for the night
And it was okay
Mama told us that we were good kids
And daddy told us never listen to the ones
Pointing nasty fingers and making fun
‚Cause we were good kids

Remember asking both my mom and dad
Why we never travelled to exotic lands
We only ever really visit‘ friends
Nothing to tell when the summer ends
We never really went buying clothes
Folks were passing the stuff in plenty loads
New shoes once a year and then
Out to play ball so we could ruin them

When mama said that is was okay
Mama said that it was quite alright
Our kind of people had a bed for the night
And it was okay
Mama told us we were good kids
And daddy told us never listen to the ones
Pointing nasty fingers and making fun
‚Cause we were good kids

Don’t get me wrong I didn’t have it bad
I got enough lovin‘ from my mom and dad
But I don’t think they really understood
When I said that I wanted to deal in Hollywood
I told I might be singing on TV
The other kids were calling me a wannabe
The older kids they started bugging me

But now they’re all standing right in front of me (ha ha)
Mama said that is was okay
Mama said that it was quite alright
Our kind of people had a bed for the night
And it was okay
Mama told us we were good kids
And daddy told us never listen to the ones
Pointing nasty fingers and making fun

‚Cause we were good kids
I know which place I’m from
I know my home
When I’m in doubt and struggling
That’s where I’ll go
And old friend can give advice
When new friends only know the half story
That’s why I always keep them tight
And why I’m okay
I said I’m okay
You know what my mama said?

You know what she told me?
Mama said that is was okay
Mama said that it was quite alright
Our kind of people had a bed for the night
And it was okay
Mama told us that we were good kids
And daddy told us never listen to the ones
Pointing nasty fingers and making fun

‚Cause we were good kids
My mama said that is was okay
Babada baba
Babada baba
Babada baba
My mama said that is was okay
Babada baba
Babada baba
Babada baba
My mama said that is was okay

S12 Hoobastank – Moving Forward

Lyrics

At least I’m moving forward.
At least I’m moving forward.
At least I’m moving forward.
At least I’m moving forward

I stand before, a road that will lead,
Into the unknown. At least unknown to me.
I want to go, but I’m paralysed with fear.
Fear of a choice, where the outcome isn’t clear.

No, but still I go.

And I take, the first step of a million more.
And I’ll make mistakes I’ve never made before.
But at least I’m moving forward,
At least I’m moving forward.
At least I’m moving forward

I wonder if, the journey will be,
Shorter as I hope, or much longer than it seems.
But either way, I’ve made up my mind.
I’m through feeling scared, I’m leaving that behind.

So, now it’s time to go.

And I take, the first step of a million more.
And I’ll make mistakes I’ve never made before.
But at least I’m moving forward,
At least I’m moving forward.
At least I’m moving forward

And in while I“l be singing,

Na, nana nana
And I take, the first step of a million more.
And I’ll make mistakes I’ve never made before.
But at least I’m moving forward,
At least I’m moving forward.
At least I’m moving forward,
At least I’m moving forward.

And I take, the first step of a million more!
And I’ll make mistakes I’ve never made before!
But at least I’m moving forward,
At least I’m moving forward.
At least I’m moving forward,
At least I’m moving forward!

Moving, for-ward.
Moving, for-ward.
Moving, for-ward.
Moving, for-ward

Na, nana nana

S11 Thousand Foot Krutch – War of Change

Lyrics
It’s a truth that in love and war
Worlds collide and hearts get broken
I want to live like I know I’m dying
Take up my cross, not be afraid

Is it true what they say, that words are weapons?
And if it is, then everybody best stop steppin‘
‚Cause I got ten in my pocket that’ll bend ya locket
I’m tired of all these rockers sayin‘ come with me
Wait, it’s just about to break, it’s more than I can take
Everything’s about to change
I feel it in my veins, it’s not going away
Everything’s about to change

It creeps in like a thief in the night
Without a sign, without a warning
But we are ready and prepared to fight
Raise up your swords, don’t be afraid

Is it true what they say, that words are weapons?
And if it is, then everybody best stop steppin‘
‚Cause I got ten in my pocket that’ll bend ya locket
I’m tired of all these rockers sayin‘ come with me
Wait, it’s just about to break, it’s more than I can take
Everything’s about to change
I feel it in my veins, it’s not going away
Everything’s about to change

This is a warning, like it or not
I break down, like a record spinning
Gotta get up
So back off
This is a warning, like it or not
I’m tired of listenin‘, I’m warning you, don’t try to get up

There’s a war going on inside of me tonight (don’t be afraid)
There’s a war going on inside of me tonight (don’t be afraid)

Wait, it’s just about to break, it’s more than I can take
Everything’s about to change
I feel it in my veins, it’s not going away
Everything’s about to change
It’s just about to break, it’s more than I can take
Everything’s about to change
I feel it in my veins, it’s not going away
Everything’s about to change

You feel an energy drought and in creeps doubt
But with a little bit of hope you can figure it out (yo, yo, let’s go)
Keep your head high even when your down inside

If you fail you’ll be fine, get back up to the grind
And never lose sight of your mission (nah), be driven

You’re in it to win it, so get it, don’t miss it (yo, yo)
Your chance is now to be something, somehow, don’t let yourself down

[Outro] That’s right, sometimes
All we really need is hope

S9 Christina Stürmer – Millionen Lichter

Lyrics

Es fährt im Kopf ein Karussell
Und alles dreht sich irgendwie zu schnell
Die Straßen sind leer und du bist es auch
Als wär‘ das Leben das hier einmal war verbraucht

Als ob dort in der ferne ein weiterer Stern wär‘
Der wie du so einsam scheint

Doch da sind weit über tausend,
Den geht es genauso du bist nicht allein

Da sind Millionen lichter in der Welt
Milliarden Farben die leuchten so hell
Millionen lichter über der Stadt
Sie bring uns sicher durch die Nacht
Da sind Millionen lichter siehst du sie nicht
Millionen Gesichter
Wie du und ich
Wie du und ich

Du kommst dir vor wie ein Komet
Der in die Erdumlaufbahn fliegt und verglüht
Du spürst wie du rennst den regen auf deiner haut
Durch deine Adern fließt Strom
Du warst noch niemals so gut gelaunt
Als ob dort in der Ferne noch mehr von dir wären
Sie ziehen dich magnetisch an
All die Sterne da draußen die den Nachthimmel auf sehen
Wir gehören zusammen

Da sind Millionen Lichter in der Welt
Milliarden Farben die leuchten so hell
Millionen Lichter über der Stadt
Sie bringen uns sicher durch die Nacht
Da sind Million Geschichten die sprechen für sich
Millionen Lichter
Wie du und ich
Wie du und ich
Wie du und ich
Wie du und ich

Da sind Millionen Lichter in der Welt
Milliarden Farben die leuchten so hell
Millionen Lichter über der Stadt
Sie bringen uns sicher durch die Nacht
Da sind Millionen lichter siehst
Du sie nicht Millionen Gesichter

Wie du und ich
Wie du und ich
Wie du und ich

S8 Shinedown – Diamond Eyes

Lyrics
I am the shadow, and the smoke in your eyes,
I am the ghost, that hides in the night

Boom-Lay Boom-Lay BOOM!
Boom-Lay Boom-Lay BOOM!
Boom-Lay Boom-Lay BOOM!
Boom-Lay Boom-Lay BOOM!

Wait, wait a minute take a step back
you gotta think twice before you react
so stay, stay a little while
Because a Promise not kept is the road to exile
HEY! whats the circumstance
you’ll never be great without taking a chance so
wait, you waited too long
had your hands in your pocket
when you shoulda been gone

Boom-Lay Boom-Lay BOOM!
One push is all you’ll need
Boom-Lay Boom-Lay BOOM!
A fist first philosophy
Boom-Lay Boom-Lay BOOM!
We watch with wounded eyes
Boom-Lay Boom-Lay BOOM!
So I hope you recognize

I’m on the front line
Don’t worry I’ll be fine
the story is just beginning
I say goodbye to my weakness
so long to the regret
and now I see the world through diamond eyes

Damn! damn it all down
took one to the chest without even a sound so
What! What are you worth?
the things you love or the people you hurt
Hey! it’s like deja vu
a suicidal maniac with nothing to lose
so wait, it’s the exception to the rule
everyone of us is expendable

Boom-Lay Boom-Lay BOOM!
One push is all you’ll need
Boom-Lay Boom-Lay BOOM!
A fist first philosophy
Boom-Lay Boom-Lay BOOM!
We watch with wounded eyes
Boom-Lay Boom-Lay BOOM!
So I hope you recognize

I’m on the front line
don’t worry I’ll be fine
the story is just beginning
I say goodbye to my weakness
so long to the regret
and now I know that I’m alive
I’m on the front line
don’t worry I’ll be fine
the story is just beginning
I say goodbye to my weakness
so long to the regret
and now I see the world through diamond eyes

Every night of my life
I watch angels fall from the sky
Every time that the sun still sets
I pray they don’t take mine

I’m on the front line
don’t worry I’ll be fine
the story is just beginning
I say goodbye to my weakness
so long to regret

I’m on the front line
don’t worry I’ll be fine
the story is just beginning
I say goodbye to my weakness
so long to the regrets
and now I know that I’m alive

I’m on the front line
don’t worry I’ll be fine
the story is just beginning
I say goodbye to my weakness
so long to the regret
and now I see the world through diamond eyes
and now I see the world through diamond eyes

Boom-Lay Boom-Lay BOOM!
Boom-Lay Boom-Lay BOOM!
Boom-Lay Boom-Lay BOOM!
Boom-Lay Boom-Lay BOOM!

Boom-Lay Boom-Lay BOOM!
Boom-Lay Boom-Lay BOOM!
Boom-Lay Boom-Lay BOOM!
Boom-Lay Boom-Lay BOOM!

S7 Rise Against – Satellite

Lyrics

You can’t feel the heat until you hold your hand over the flame
You have to cross the line just to remember where it lays
You won’t know your worth now, son, until you take a hit
And you won’t find the beat until you lose yourself in it

That’s why we won’t back down
We won’t run and hide
‚Cause these are the things we can’t deny
I’m passing over you like a satellite
So catch me if I fall
That’s why you stick to your game plans and party lives
But at night we’re conspiring by candlelight
We are the orphans of the American dreams
Oh shine your light on me

You can’t fill your cup until you empty all it has
You can’t understand what lays ahead
If you don’t understand the past
You’ll never learn the fun now
Till you’re standing at the cliff
And you cant truly love until you’ve given up on it

She told me that she never would face the world again
So I offer up a plan

We’ll sneak out when they sleep
And sail off in the night
We’ll come clean and start over the rest of our lives
When we’re gone we’ll stay gone
Out of sight, out of mind
It’s not too late
We have the rest of our lives

We’ll sneak out while they sleep
And sail off into the night
We’ll come clean and start over the rest of our lives
Out of sight, out of mind
It’s not too late
We have the rest of our lives
The rest of our lives
The rest of our lives
Because we won’t back down
We won’t run and hide
Yeah ‚cause these are the things we can’t deny
I’m passing over you like a satellite
So catch me if I fall
That’s why you stick to your game plans and party lives
But at night we’re conspiring by candlelight
We are the orphans of the American dreams
Oh shine your light on me

Because we won’t back down
We won’t run and hide
Yeah ‚cause these are the things we can’t deny
I’m passing over you like a satellite
‚Cause these are the things that we can’t deny now
This is a life that you can’t deny us now

S6 NEFFEX – Things Are Gonna Get Better

Lyrics
Growing up parents got me a guitar
Said you can do anything kid you can go far
You can be the president fireman race cars
The sky’s the limit kid so shoot for the stars

So I strummed that guitar every day
Found a passion for music never went away
I joined a couple bands and played a few shows
Tried to impress the girl in the front row

But soon enough everything starts to change
As you grow up nobody treats you the same
They try take ur future and make it real safe
You could be a doctor accountant or something sane
But yo
What ever happened to the sky was the limit?
I fell in love with music never thought it was a gimmick
I worked so hard on every tune and every single lyric
My whole identity dependent on being artistic

Now you want to strip that away?
So you feel ok?
Cuz if I make it to the top what does that really say?
That you shouldn’t have given up, that you made the mistake
But if I fail you feel much better bout pickin your lane right

Pre:
Yea things are gunna get better real soon
Yea Ima just do me you just do you
I swear it’s gunna get better real soon
Don’t let anyone tell u what you should do

I got a clear view
We’re gunna make it soon
Just keep pushing through
Yea what you got to lose?
Yea what you got to lose?
Yea what you got to lose?
Just keep pushing through
Cuz what you got to lose?

I won’t give up
I won’t back down
Till I’m lying 6 feet underneath the deep ground
I won’t give up
I won’t back down
Cuz nobody’s stopping me except for me now

2nd rap:
And let’s be honest life’s a competition
So if I’m going to play then Im gon play to win it
I refuse to sit and rot at a desk all day
Unless I have a passion I’m working towards ok

Id rather be dead on the outside than inside
A bullet to the head than 25 to life
In a cubicle alone just trying get by
Building someone else’s dream instead of building mine

If you’re hearin me this is meant to inspire
If you have a dream or if u have desires
A girl in your life thats makin u feel that fire
Go fight for her man go die for her man

Cuz you only have one life one chance to do it
One chance to prove it to yourself so don’t lose it
You got this fam just keep pushing on through it
One day you’ll look back so glad you pursued it

2nd pre:
You ain’t gon stop me now
Because I got this now
I got the formula and I’m about to drop it loud
So what we talking bout
There is no talkin now
We take action with passion
We’re rockin now

It’s tick tockin now
The clocks tockin down
And all I hear is haters try so hard to talk me down
But they can’t stop the sound
Already on the ground
Everything is growing faster than I can count

 

S5 Muse – Feeling Good

Lyrics

Birds flying high
You know how I feel
Sun in the sky
You know how I feel
Reeds driftin‘ on by
You know how I feel

It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life
For me
And I’m feeling good

Fish in the sea
You know how I feel
River running free
You know how I feel
Blossom in the trees
You know how I feel

It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life
For me
And I’m feeling good

Dragonfly out in the sun
You know what I mean, don’t you know
Butterflies are all havin‘ fun
You know what I mean
Sleep in peace when day is done
And this old world is a new world
And a bold world
For me

Stars when you shine
You know how I feel
Scent of the pine
You know how I feel
Yeah, freedom is mine
And you know how I feel

It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life
For me

Oh
Freer than you
Oh
Feeling good

S4 Yellowcard – Here I Am Alive

Lyrics
If I could write to the kid I was before
I’d tell him you’d get everything you ever wanted
But you will still want more
Someone’s gonna tell you
Who you should wanna be
So you forget the vision that they didn’t want to see
And when they give up, ‚cause they will give up say
„Here I am alive“

They say you don’t grow up you just grow old
It’s safe to say I haven’t done both
I made mistakes, I know, I know
But here I am alive
So many people close to me cut me down
This is supposed to be a bad luck town
I jumped, I fell, I hit the ground
But here I am alive

If I could write to myself when I was on top of it all,
I’d say you’re going overboard and when you are falling
You’re gonna feel so small
Someone’s gonna tell you that you deserve the worst
They’d say you’re never coming back and tell you that you’re cursed
But when they give up, ‚cause they always give up say-
„Here I am alive“

They say you don’t grow up you just grow old
It’s safe to say I haven’t done both
I made mistakes, I know, I know
But here I am alive
So many people close to me cut me down
This is supposed to be a bad luck town
I jumped, I fell, I hit the ground
But here I am alive

And when they give up, ‚cause they will give up
Say: „Here I am alive!!“
And when they give up, ‚cause they always give up
Say: „Here I am alive!!“

They say you don’t grow up you just grow old
It’s safe to say I haven’t done both
I made mistakes, I know, I know
But here I am alive
So many people close to me cut me down
This is supposed to be a bad luck town
I jumped, I fell, I hit the ground
But here I am alive

Here I am alive
(Here I am alive)
Here I am alive
(Here I am alive)
Here I am alive
(Here I am alive)
Here I am alive
(Here I am)
If I could write to the kid I was before
