I SING ALONE MY THOUGHTS ALONG

Three it’s a magic number
Yes it is, it’s a magic number
Because two times three is six
And three times six is eighteen
And the eighteenth letter in the alphabet is R
We’ve got three R’s we’re going to talk about today
We’ve got to learn to
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

If you’re going to the market to buy some juice
You’ve got to bring your own bags and you learn to reduce your waste
And if your brother or your sister’s got some cool clothes
You could try them on before you buy some more of those
Reuse, we’ve got to learn to reuse
And if the first two R’s don’t work out
And if you’ve got to make some trash
Don’t throw it out
Recycle, we’ve got to learn to recycle,
We’ve got to learn to
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Because three it’s a magic number
Yes it is, it’s a magic number
3, 3, 3
3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30, 33, 36
33, 30, 27, 24, 21, 18, 15, 12, 9, 6, and
3, it’s a magic number

Questions

Questions, I’ve got some questions
I want to know you
But what if I could ask you only one thing
Only this one time, what would you tell me?
Well maybe you could give me a suggestion
So I could know you, what would you tell me?
Maybe you could tell me what to ask you
Because then I’d know you, what would you tell me
Please tell me that there’s time
To make this work for all intents and purposes
And what are your intentions, will you try?
Impressions, you’ve made impressions
They’re going nowhere
They’re just going to wait here if you let them
Please don’t let them
I want to know you
And if they’re going to haunt me
Please collect them
Please just collect them
And now I’m begging
I’m begging you to ask me just one question
One simple question
Because then you’d know me
I’ll tell you that there’s time
To make this work for all intents and purposes
At least for my own
What is a heart worth if it’s just left all alone?
Leave it long enough and watch it turn into stone
Why must we always be untrue?

by Jack Johnson

Who’s to say what’s impossible?
Well they forgot this world keeps spinning
And with each new day
I can feel a change in everything

And as the surface breaks reflections fade
But in some ways they remain the same
And as my mind begins to spread its wings
There’s no stopping in curiosity

I want to turn the whole thing upside down
I’ll find the things they say just can’t be found
I’ll share this love I find with everyone
We’ll sing and dance to mother nature’s songs
I don’t want this feeling to go away

Who’s to say I can’t do everything?
Well I can try, and as I roll along I begin to find
Things aren’t always just what they seem

I want to turn the whole thing upside down
I’ll find the things they say just can’t be found
I’ll share this love I find with everyone
We’ll sing and dance to mother nature’s songs

This world keeps spinning
And there’s no time to waste
Well it all keeps spinning spinning
Round and round and upside down

Who’s to say what’s impossible and can’t be found?
I don’t want this feeling to go away

Please don’t go away

Is this how it’s supposed to be?

by Stevie Wonder

Isolated junk yard
Letting out the garbage
Eating through the core of life

Sweet fragrance irritates
In a state room death awaits
Persecute your own self-pride

Suffocate the new high
Ride the thorny mule that cries
"Dig your grave and step right in"

Like a judas pay the price
30 pieces for a ride
Here's the fire take a chew

Do yourself a favour
Educate your mind
Get yourself together
Hey there ain't much time

Shredded know-how give away
Species of the human race
Those funky winds of ups and downs

Hall of grit is known too well
Heaven still is your hell
Poison slowly slowly drowns

Let the devil step right in
Lucifer's your only friend
Ain't a soul go'n pity you

Hurdly over time to death
With open arms it waits I bet
Don't you wish you could reach ground?

Do yourself a favour
Educate your mind
Get yourself together
Hey there ain't much time

High

Will it ever be?
I've tried so hard to find sweet serenity
Are you still afraid?
Just close your eyes and dream, and feel it fade away.

Time won't flow, everyone knows
When the pain fades away
And dreams won't die, with tears in our eyes
You've got to hold your head up high…

It's taken some time,
And I've given up the will to change your state of mind
Try and understand,
It's not so hard to see that I am just a man.

Time won't flow, everyone knows
When the pain fades away
And dreams won't die, with tears in our eyes
You've got to hold your head up high…

Will it ever be?
I've tried so hard to find sweet serenity
Try and understand,
It's not so hard to see that I am just a man.

Time won't flow, everyone knows
When the pain fades away
And dreams won't die, with tears in our eyes
You've got to hold your head up high…

Unwritten

by Natasha Bedingfield

I am unwritten, can't read my mind, I'm undefined
Im just beginning, the pen's in my hand, ending unplanned

Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words that you can not find
Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inhibitions

Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten

I break tradition, sometimes my tries, are outside the lines
We've been conditioned to not make mistakes, but I can't live that way

Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words that you can not find

Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inhibitions

Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
But the rest is still unwritten

Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten
The rest is still unwritten
The rest is still unwritten

artist: Oasis 

Today is gonna be the day
That they’re gonna throw it back to you
By now you should’ve somehow
Realized what you gotta do
I don’t believe that anybody
Feels the way I do about you now

Backbeat the word was on the street
That the fire in your heart is out
I’m sure you’ve heard it all before
But you never really had a doubt
I don’t believe that anybody feels
The way I do about you now

And all the roads we have to walk along are winding
And all the lights that lead us there are blinding
There are many things that I would
Like to say to you
I don’t know how

Because maybe
You’re gonna be the one who saves me?
And after all
You’re my wonderwall

Today was gonna be the day
But they’ll never throw it back to you
By now you should’ve somehow
Realized what you’re not to do
I don’t believe that anybody
Feels the way I do
About you now

And all the roads that lead to you were winding
And all the lights that light the way are blinding
There are many things that I would like to say to you
I don’t know how

I said maybe
You’re gonna be the one who saves me?
And after all
You’re my wonderwall

I said maybe
You’re gonna be the one who saves me?
And after an
You’re my wonderwall

Said maybe
You’re gonna be the one that saves me
You’re gonna be the one that saves me
You’re gonna be the one that saves me
