Welcome All To You

Welcome all;

all to you.

Welcome all;

all to you.

 

Life is just a game.

Life is just a game.

Let’s all play.

 

No one is to blame.

No one is to blame.

Let us stay.

 

Welcome all;

all to you.

Welcome all;

all to you.

 

Everything’s the same.

Everything’s the same.

Never stray.

 

Nothing is the same.

Nothing is the same.

Let’s give way.

 

Welcome all;

all to you.

Welcome all;

all to you.

 

Loving every day.

Loving every day.

Is the way.

 

Nothing else to say.

Nothing else to say.

Let us pray.

 

Welcome all;

all to you.

Welcome all;

all to you.

The Simple Things

It’s always just the simple things
that seem to bring me light.
A landing through the hills,
or daffodils in spring;
a gentle walk in the park
after dark.
To have and hold a baby in your arms;
a spoon of Lucky Charms.
Or come what may,
some little thing the day might bring;
for it’s just the simple things.

It’s always just the simple things
that seem to bring me joy.
A cozy fireplace,
a brand new choo-choo train,
or a surprisingly swinging refrain.
To have and hold your lover in your arms;
behold their many charms.
For when I wake,
I’m grateful for another day
to enjoy the simple things.

In The Zone

we’re in the zone
quiet mind all the time
touch the unknown
in the zone

the more you look
the more you see
oh, just settle down
and let things be

ain’t even tryin’ to move
lovin’ where I be
sitting still I dig myself
and set me soul free

we’re in the zone
take a line out of time
make it your own
in the zone

the living light
shining deep within
getting to know you
as my best friend

singing my spirit song
to all who will hear
my mind is like a mirror
reflecting all things clear

we’re in the zone
we’re in the zone
we’re in the zone
we’re in the zone

we’re in the zone
quiet mind all the time
touch the unknown
in the zone

Smiling In The Dark

A peaceful mockingbird hangin’ on the corner
Telling tales of golden love
The breeze blowing through the trees and spinning round
Whispering tomorrow’s gift of yesterday

Laughter ringing her bell of happiness
And survival always crying out to be born again
No matter how things may get you down
Know you have the power to turn it all around (just by)

Smiling in the dark
Bright light, all night
Smiling in the dark
No fear, my dear

The kids of night and day playing tricks with time
And the long road ain’t easy but it’ll still getcha there
Folks who are lost know most the beauty of being found
The Invisible Hand can touch a heart from anywhere

Just close your eyes and you can go where you wanna go
Free yourself and let your imagination take you there
No matter if skies may turn cloudy and gray
Love will lead you through to another sunny day (yes I’m)

Smiling in the dark
Bright light, through the night (just keep)
Smiling in the dark
No fear, my dear

Set your spirit free and ride high above the clouds
Set your spirit free and ride high above the clouds
Set your spirit free and ride high above the clouds
Set your spirit free and ride high above the clouds

Let It Ride

looking deep within the sky above
fills my heart and mind with peace and love
never shed a tear
in the name of fear
for happiness
is near
i hold out my hands
to the sun
please grant
me thy wisdom
ever let me bathe in your light
remain in your sight
don’t hide
let it ride

- Nicholas Payton
