Track Name: Reach Out (ft. Solid Souljah)
We keep the music moving and keep the groove and grooving
Stomp our feet to the beat, so we can feel the rhythm
we wont let any second pass us by
The clock will keep on ticking, time will keep on running
But we won’t stop till we drop, till the early morning
we won’t let any second pass us by

Don’t you know time will never be turning back for you and I
So now is the time to make your life everything you want it to be

Reach out, reach for the sky
We won’t let any second pass us by
Reach out, reach for the sky
We won’t let any second pass us by

My life is yours to mould it, so please won’t you control it
No one else gonna tell me what to do about it
We won’t let any second pass us by

Reach out, reach for the sky
We won’t let any second pass us by
Reach out, reach for the sky
We won’t let any second pass us by

Take a step from reality
Start living in a life that's free, live a life where you can't deny
That to touch the sky you only gotta try
Every man, every woman, every girl, every guy
Reach high, don't question why
Every second that you waste is a maze of amazement
Days that you never gonna taste again
And I know when I get into the flow
I can feel it in my spirit, wanna open up the door
And I done it all before, like I'm flying off the floor
Here I go and yeah I go until the going gets slow
And I gotta take another second
Coz I gotta make it happen
I won't even waste a moment
Cherish every single second
Don't stop, keep it up, reach out
All I gotta ask is

Don’t you know time will never be turning back for you and I
So now is the time to make your life everything you want it to be

Reach out, reach for the sky
We won’t let any second pass you by
Reach out, reach for the sky
We won’t let any second pass you by

We won’t let any second pass us
We won’t let any second pass us
We won’t let any second pass us by

We won’t let any second pass us
We won’t let any second pass us
We won’t let any second pass us by
Track Name: Hey Child
It’s been a while since you dialled my number wouldn't you say
You're passing by with a tear in your eye you pretend its okay
I got your back like I had it back then from the very first day
So talk to me lets work it all out it will be okay
But you won’t say a single word to me

Hey Child (Hey Child)
why wont you speak to me (When you know that I)
I know exactly what it is that you need
Hey child (Hey Child)
Why won’t you listen to me (When you know that I)
when I know exactly all the things that you need

I know sometimes you don’t like what I say and it’s driving you mad
But can't you see it’s all for your good so please understand
whichever way you may feel today I’ll be right by your side
So come to me and I will give you rest and a peace of mind
But you won’t say a single word to me

Hey Child (Hey Child)
why wont you speak to me (When you know that I)
I know exactly what it is that you need
Hey child (Hey Child)
Why won’t you listen to me (When you know that I)
when I know exactly all the things that you need

So you may think you know better
Well you might be right, you might be right
But can you keep it together
If you don’t say a word to me

Hey Child (Hey Child)
why wont you speak to me (When you know that I)
I know exactly what it is that you need
Hey child (Hey Child)
Why won’t you listen to me (When you know that I)
when I know exactly all the things that you need
Hey Child (Hey Child)
why wont you speak to me (When you know that I)
I know exactly what it is that you need
Hey child (Hey Child)
Why won’t you listen to me (When you know that I)
I know exactly all the things that you need
I know exactly all the things that you need
I know exactly all the things that you need
Track Name: If You Ever
See I’m very good with excuses
I’m very good with making up little lies
But if I had to be very honest
You can see the truth in my eyes
Just like you I’m far from perfect
Just like you I got my own little flaws
Just like you I got my own problems
But that aint stopping me from loving us

If you ever feel you're not important (If you ever)
If you ever feel like you're not enough (If you ever)
If you’re ever treated less than special (If you ever)
You need to know there's someone here who loves you

So let me start again
I know that you’ve been hurt
I know that you've been crying (I know that you've been crying)
I know the pain you feel
and the place you're lying in (the place your lying in)
So let me be the cure
Your love medicine
No need for all those tears
Just let me in

If you ever feel you're not important (If you ever)
If you ever feel like you're not enough (If you ever)
If you’re ever treated less than special (If you ever)
You need to know that someone’s here who loves you

I don’t need to tell you (I don’t even need to let you know)
I don’t need to prove to you (I don’t need to say a word to you)
Because
Every time that you need
Somebody here who believes
I'll pick you every time when you fall on your knees
I will never ever make you feel like all alone

If you ever feel you're not important (If you ever)
If you ever feel like you're not enough (If you ever)
If you’re ever treated less than special (If you ever)
You need to know that someone’s here who loves you
If you ever feel you're not important (If you ever)
If you ever feel like you're not enough (If you ever)
If you’re ever treated less than special (If you ever)
You need to know that someone’s here who loves you
Track Name: Mr Carefree
People call me funny, although my jokes are crummy
But I don’t think that they mind
Sometimes I’m not that friendly, sometimes I might get grumpy
So I hope you don’t mind
You think that I’m a winner, You think that I’m a dreamer
Cause I’m good with my life
But theres a simpler picture, that takes me much more further
that gives me peace of mind

I’ll never question why
I’m just living a day at a time

Haven’t you heard about me, call me Mr. Carefree
Take the problems off of me, gimme the ground beneath my feet
See the life I lead, I delight in simple things
See the thing that you don’t see
You could be exactly in the same shoes as Mr. Carefree

I don’t need to worry
You won’t see me hurry
Something tells me it’s fine
I’m free as free can be
Like a summer bee
ill only sting you if we fight

You'll never see me cry
I’m just living a day at a time

Haven’t you heard about me, call me Mr. Carefree
Take the problems off of me, gimme the ground beneath my feet
See the life I lead, I delight in simple things
See the thing that you don’t see
You could be exactly in the same shoes as Mr. Carefree

I’ll never question why
You'll never see me cry
I’m just living a day at a time

Haven’t you heard about me, call me Mr. Carefree
Take the problems off of me, gimme the ground beneath my feet
See the life I lead, I delight in simple things
See the thing that you don’t see
You could be exactly in the same shoes as Mr. Carefree
Haven’t you heard about me, call me Mr. Carefree
Take the problems off of me, gimme the ground beneath my feet
See the life I lead, I delight in simple things
See the thing that you don’t see
You could be exactly in the same shoes as Mr. Carefree
Track Name: Skyward (ft. Saxy Tumzay)
Now listen up to the words of this song
We ain't got all day long
Think about all of the things that we've done
From the morn to the setting of the sun now
Looking back I remember a time
Everybody had a little dream just like mine
To reach the top is the plot is it not
But everybody gives up because its too tough right

Whatever happened to the good times
Where everybody worked hard, tried hard
To find a spark in their heart so they can take part in
Doing something impossible
Make something possible
Don’t let a trip or a fall put you down put your head up
move it up, and bounce

Who here wants to work hard
Who here wants to be heard
Who here wants a fresh start
Move it up, move it up, everybody move skyward
Who here wants a fast car
Who here wants a front yard
Who here wants to dream large
Move it up, move it up, everybody move skyward

You'll find that life ain't what you thought it would be
You gotta love what you got
And fight for the top coz
We only got this time (hey)
We only need this time (hey)
To make the world a better place
Work at your peak and make a better day

Whatever happened to the good times
the fire aint dead like a fire stays red
You can move it up if you follow this step just
Do something impossible
Make something possible
Don’t let a trip or a fall put down
Put your head move it up and bounce

Who here wants to work hard
Who here wants to be heard
Who here wants a fresh start
Move it up, move it up, everybody move skyward
Who here wants a fast car
Who here wants a front yard
Who here wants to dream large
Move it up, move it up, everybody move skyward

Saxy Tumzay on the microphone hey
No need to think just live like it's your last day
Every day, I will pray for the way for you and I to find that peace of mind
That love for your brother, love for another
Love for yourself so you'll never be bothered by the
Lack of attention, lack of motivation
You could be the star in any generation
A saxophone alone it could hold a note long enough
to mould a beautiful sound all around the room
But resume the bass boom with your feet to the beat together
Who needs the tone, who needs the groove, who needs to move
Yea we got all we need from all the truth yea
Saxy tumzay on the microphone hey
If you want the drop, put it up, everybody say

Who here wants to work hard
Who here wants to be heard
Who here wants a fresh start
Move it up, move it up, everybody move skyward
Who here wants a front yard
Who here wants a fast car
Who here wants to dream large
Move it up, move it up, everybody move skyward
