Track Name: This Is It
THIS IS IT

Today is a good day
Cause I’m alive
And no matter what happens
I’ve got a reason to smile
Cause I can feel my heart beating
Heart beating
And that’s all I need…

This is it
Feel the moment
Come alive, come alive
This is it
Feel the moment
Come alive, come alive

Today is a good day
And I’m thanking God
For this breath that I’m breathing
For all I’ve got
Cause I can feel my heart beating
Heart beating
And that’s all I need…

This is it
Feel the moment
Come alive, come alive
This is it
Feel the moment
Come alive, come alive

This is it
Feel the moment
Come alive, come alive
This is it
Feel the moment
Feel the moment
Come alive

Cause I can feel my heart beating,
Heart beating
Oh I can feel my heart beating,
Heart beating
Yeah I can feel my heart beating
Heart beating
And that’s all I need…

This is it
Feel the moment
Come alive, come alive
This is it
Feel the moment
Come alive, come alive

This is it
Feel the moment
Come alive, come alive
This is it
Feel the moment
Feel the moment
Come alive
Track Name: Pass It Around
PASS IT AROUND:

Born into this world of illusion separation
And then we’re taught to run the human race
Earn the freedom when we reach the destination
Lifetime prescription for living to the numb the pain

Pass it around Pass it around
Pass it around Pass it around
Pass it around Pass it around
Pass it around
Never coming down…

Woke up to the gift of the present meditation
And learned to be the witness be the space
Freedom found deep down in the Now elevation
Heal it by feeling it no need to escape
Heal it by feeling it no need to escape

Pass it around Pass it around
Pass it around Pass it around
Pass it around Pass it around
The time has come
We’re rising up
No coming down

I know, I know that I was born to be a rebel
Feeling alive this natural high’s lifting me up to another level
People we’re alive let this natural high lift us up to another level

Another level
Another level
Another level

Music’s my medicine
Answer to every question
Student of truth
Follow my heart every day
The more I let go of “I”
Higher my expression
Instrument of Love that’s the song I came to play
Instrument of Love that’s the song I came to play

Pass it around Pass it around
Pass it around Pass it around
Pass it around Pass it around
Pass it around
Never coming down

Pass it around Pass it around
Pass it around Pass it around
Pass it around Pass it around
The time has come
We’re rising up
No coming down
Track Name: Tell Me
TELL ME

Now I know why I’m here
Like the sun shining down, it’s so clear
I was born to be the only me
And you were to born the only you
Together we’re the one and only we
Let’s love each other like we came to do

Tell me what you’re really needin
No need to keep it secret
Tell me what I can do now
I’m not gonna leave you out in the cold

Tell me how you’re really feelin
No need to hide your worries
I want to be there for you
Can’t stand to see you suffering alone

Now it’s clear, why we’re here
To sing our with a voice so strong
Let the whole world hear
Cause I was born to be the only me
And you were to born the only you
Together we’re the one and only we
And we can ‘t stop until the dream comes true

Tell me what you’re really needin
No need to keep it secret
Tell me what I can do now
I’m not gonna leave you out in the cold

Tell me how you’re really feelin
No need to hide your worries
I want to be there for you
Can’t stand to see you suffering alone

Let’s get together and use our hands
To make it better
Let’s get together do what we can
For one another.

Cause I wanne be there
Yeah, I wanna be there for ya...
Track Name: I Won't Die
I WON’T DIE

Six o’clock in the mornin’
And I can’t wait to get my day goin’
I’ve been sleepin’ and dreamin’
Now it’s time to get up with the sun

Rise, rise above the ashes of yesterday’s deeds undone
Every day’s a blessing and I must confess
That I’ve been wasting so many but now I’m ready to rest
My soul in peace knowing I’ve done what I came to do.
Oh dear God, please give me the strength to follow through.

My song has to be sung
From the heart and the lungs
Before I leave I’ve got to speak my truth

I won’t die, I won’t die
With my music inside me
I won’t die, I won’t die
With my music inside me

I blink it’s already sundown
And I’ve still got so much to do now.
This is the one and only moment
Where we get to keep the magic unfoldin’.

My mind’s been telling me what it’s been thinking about
Trying to figure out how but I don’t want that doubt
To creep in and ruin all the visions I’ve been havin’
So I imagine it already happened.
You can make a wish but if you don’t believe it won’t come true
Or you could have it all before you plant the seed you taste the fruit.

My song has to be sung
From the heart and the lungs
Before I leave you know I’m speakin’ my truth

I won’t die, I won’t die
With my music inside me
I won’t die, I won’t die
With my music inside me

I won’t die, I won’t die
With my music inside me
I won’t die, I won’t die
With my music inside me
I know what I’m supposed to do now
I’ve got this feelin’ and I’ve got to let it out.
Yeah, I know what I’m supposed to now
I’ve got this feelin’ and I’ve got to,
I’ve got let it out.

It’s almost midnight there’s a full moon
Outside my window this day’s gonna be over soon
I count my blessings and say thank you
For this life I know I can’t give too much gratitude.

Before I was born into this world I had no form
And then I came into the shape they gave
And the name they named me.
Like a lion in a cage, asleep with no escape
Livin’ like a slave but now I’m wide awake.
Now I’m free and howlin’ with my voice I choose to use it
And no one else can tell this story like I do, yes.

My song has to be sung
From the heart and the lungs
Before I leave you know I’m speakin’ my truth

I won’t die, I won’t die
With my music inside me
I won’t die, I won’t die
With my music inside me

I won’t die, I won’t die
With my music inside me
I won’t die, I won’t die
With my music inside me
Track Name: All My Love
ALL MY LOVE

Darlin I've been holding back
Not giving you all I have
Cause I was afraid
To open up my heart all the way
Stop with all the games I play

Now what would you say
If I showed you all my colours
Every shade, even my deep and dark secrets?
What if everything we have to gain
Would be lost if I keep them?

I'll give all my love
You get all my love
I get all my love
That's all I really want
All I ever really needed is

All my love
You get all my love
I get all my love
That's all I really want
All I ever really needed is
All my love

I've been listening to the voice in my head
Believing all the lies that it says
About who I am
When I look into the mirror I see
A broken down shadow of me
Now what if I can't
Cover up my cracks every dirty flaw every last weakness?
What if everything I've tried to hide is what I've been seeking?

I'll give all my love
You get all my love
I get all my love
That's all I really want
All I ever really needed is
All my love
You get all my love
I get all my love
That's all I really want
All I ever really needed is
All my love

Darlin I was holdin back
Not giving you all I have
Cause I was afraid...
Track Name: Let Me Pick You Up
LET ME PICK YOU UP

I don’t want to be famous
I don’t need to be rich
But if I had
Just one wish


I would ask for enough to love
To give and open up
So many hearts that we could take
All the pain we create
And turn it into gold
Before we lose another soul

If you’ve got no faith left
And you’re running low on luck
Let me pick you up

If you’re broken down
And you’re hurtin now, you’re stuck
Let me pick you up
Oh won’t you
Let me pick you up

I’m not tryin to be the best
And I don’t need a prize
But if I could be
Just one thing in your eyes

I would ask God to show me
How to be brave like only
God could Take away our fears
And wipe away our tears
Til nothing could keep us
From reaching Paradise

If you’ve got no faith left
And you’re running low on luck
Let me pick you up

If you’re broken down
And you’re hurtin now, you’re stuck
Let me pick you up
Oh won’t you
Let me pick you up


Oh another rainy day
The sky is gray
More of the same

Let it fall
And wash the tears away
And if it still hurts
Would it help to hear me say…

If you’ve got no faith left
And you’re running low on luck
Let me pick you up

If you’re broken down
And you’re hurtin now, you’re stuck
Let me pick you up
Just let me pick you up

I wanna pick you up
Cause I’ve got so much love
I wanna pick you up
Oh cause I’ve got so much love

So let me pick you up
Let me pick you up
Let me pick you up
Won’t you let me pick you up
