Lyrics for new album “Live Today”

A Friend

Thank you for picking up the phone
I was feeling so alone
but you knew just what to say
what to say
a listening ear a helping hand
just someone who understands
can take the dark clouds away
and I can’t thank you enough
for lifting me up when I get stuck

Chorus
you’re a friend always there for me
like a lovely melody
you give not expecting anything in return
a friend always by my side
even on the bumpy rides
how am I so lucky to have you
in my life in my life
today I was in a daze
hoping that it was just a phase
but I felt like this last week too
but you always read my thoughts
and you free me when I’m caught up in nothing
even when we’re busy and don’t speak in three months
you’ll always have a place in my heart
 I know that nothing can take this bond away
no matter how long we’re apart.

Back On The Ground

I’m not sure how I got here
now everything’s so unclear
just want this dark night to pass
so many life choices and just as many voices
why doesn’t the sunlight last
and every step feels like a run
I want to finish but I’ve just begun
and i can see the light
but it’s so far away
I won’t stop now til’ I find my way

cuz the destination it just keeps on changing
like an escalator going up going down
I thought that I made it
but I have to recreate it
gotta get my feet back on the ground
on the ground

I’m asking every question
getting lots of suggestions
that make my head spin even more
it’s so hard to find the middle
and I tend to belittle myself
when I see I’ll never be like everyone else

life is a push and pull
constantly back and forth
dust yourself off and get right back up
when you feel like you’re getting
stuck in the tide
G-d will help you when you’ve had enough.

Holding On Forever

No one said that butterflies were born with wings
no one said that simple people wake up as kings
it’s not about the details of your situation
everyone’s got problems it’s just how you face them

Chorus

I may not know all of the answers
I may not read all of the signs
but in my heart I feel the power
cuz’ Your words are divine
what would my life be like without You
Oh just the thought it scares me so
Hashem I’m holding on forever
I’m never letting go

I used to want to take a stroll down easy street
but now i know you gotta work to earn your keep
life’s about the ups and downs
the highs the lows the spinning round
looking deeper getting lost and found
getting lost and found

people can say whatever they like
but You’re my king and You run my life
I believe in You and everything You do
whether it’s light or dark as night.

The Palace

The city is no place for princesses
wandering to find their way
I really want to know what to make of this
so many are going astray
know that you’re not alone
G-d’s waiting for you at His throne

I’m ready to enter the palace
won’t You judge me favorably
help me live peacefully
I’m ready to enter the palace
and all I want to be
is what You ask of me

as I walk down the streets I see
so many people just trying to make ends meet
life isn’t simple
so many princesses and queens
noblemen and kings
all living in false realities

Your will is my will
do it yes i will
cuz’ no distance is too far
and Your love is so pure
even though I’m unsure
but no decree is too harsh.

The Middle

It’s about time that I got to know myself
I’m really tired of feeling like I’m someone else
in this world of colors we all get lost sometimes
as you paint your picture there’s so much that you will find

Chorus

and you’ll learn a little laugh a little
sometimes you’re stuck in the middle
that’s life
the rain is pouring from the sky
and you can’t help but wonder why
why can’t I fly

as I look around I see so much that I don’t know
I wish it didn’t have to be so hard to grow
don’t hide away come one let your colors show
I wish you could see
that you’re so beautiful

your wings aren’t strong enough yet
but don’t be down don’t forget
every day you can start anew
so forgive yourself don’t regret
you’ll be great you’ll pass the test
believe in yourself
just believe in yourself.

Live Today

I’ve been searching for meaning in my life
and I’m always questioning
will I ever get it right
I’m trying so hard to find the path
that I know I must take
but I really don’t want to make anymore mistakes

Chorus

I’m not gonna cry not gonna wonder why
nothing makes sense right now
and I’m done with worrying about what’s happening
G-d will help me through somehow
and there’ll be no more tears
I’m facing all my fears
cuz’ today is today live in the moment live today

G-d I know You have a plan for me
wish I knew what it was
lately I’ve been running around in circles just because
Don’t want to sink I want to swim
but I don’t know where to begin
will You carry me if i jump into the water father

and tomorrow’s a new story but today is what I have
don’t want to waste another second
I’ve done way too much of that.

Gam Ki Eileich

Mizmor lidavid Hashem royi lo echsar
benos deshe yarbitzeini
el me menuchos yenahaleini
nafshi yeshovev yancheni bemaglei
tzedek liman shimo

Chorus
gam ki eileich bgei tzalmaves
lo irah rah ki Atah imadi
shiftichu umishantecha
hema yenachamuni
taroch lifunai shulchun neged tzorirai
dishanta bashemen roshi kosi revaya
ach tov vichesed yurdifunie
kol yimei chayay vishavti
bibeis Hashem liorech yamim

A Sister’s Love

You may just know me better than I know myself
and you never waste a second
when I tell you I need help
we can talk for hours we can laugh all day
we have a special power
and I hope it never goes away

I’ll be your shelter in the night
when things go wrong I’ll make them right
you’re my sister you’re my friend
and I’ll be there til’ the end
when you need my I’ll be there
because no one can compare
you’re my sister you’re my friend
forever and always til’ the end

you’ve seen every part of me
there’s nothing like family
I hope that I can give you back
the love you share with me
we’ve seen highs and we’ve seen lows
but that only made our love grow
you bring me so much happiness
you give your all and nothing less

so I’ll take some tea for two
anything if I’m with you
grab your shoes let’s take a walk
I still love you even if you steal my socks
you’re so beautiful you are you so perfectly
I just hope that you can see
just how much you mean to me.

Invisible

It’s the first day in a town so far away
don’t worry things will be great
well that joy came a little late
in school nobody said hello
she felt so hurt and nobody knows

Chorus

am I invisible
does anyone care Is anyone there
I wish that I could disappear
to anywhere but here
anywhere but here

the snow is gone the flowers smell so strong
as the bus pulls away
the child asks can I play
the girls say no not today
will I ever be accepted
why do I always feel rejected

Just let go of the hurt
realize how much you’re worth
everyone feels alone sometimes
but I’ll be your friend
and you’ll be mine

you’re not invisible
somebody cares somebody’s there
so please don’t ever disappear
stay right here
stay right here
forever and ever
just don’t give up on yourself
and never no never
wish that you were somebody else
you’re perfect just like you.

You Get Me Through

Been sitting here
for way too long
trying to figure out
just what went wrong
and the future is so unclear
I try to run but don’t get anywhere

Chorus

but You always get me through
I must admit I havn’t got a clue
I don;t get this world
and I don’t get myself
so I’m begging You for help
G-d I’m begging you for help

keep thinking the same thoughts
over and over again
is this the life I’m meant to live
I really wish this pain would end
and I keep trying but don’t get past step one
and I’m always crying for some reason

running in circles doesn’t get me very far
I’m starting to get dizzy
and can’t control this car
you think I’d know by now
where to take my life
but the shoe never fits
and nothing feels right.

Coming Back To Me

It seems to me that I had the wrong
picture in my mind
picture in my mind
and it seems to be that it’s all here
everything I’m trying to find
everything I’m trying to find
and I know it’s never simple
every choice every detail
makes a difference
I think I know what I’ve been missing

Chorus

and I’m coming back to me
trying to find the truth
cuz’ living in a box
isn’t something that I want to do
now I can see the trees and all the flowers bloom
I’m paving my own way
while singing my favorite tune

open up the window take a deep breath
and just try to let go
just try to let go
all of these distractions always bring me down
and I can’t seem to get away
can’t get up off the ground

I should have listened to the voice in my heart
saying be proud of who you are
don’t you know you’ve come so far
why do we struggle to feel like we’re worth it
well I can see you and I think you’re perfect.

It’s Not Over

It’s not over until I finish this race
It’s not over until I learn to embrace
it seems that I keep making
all of the same mistakes
what will it take for me
to finally find my way

Chorus

it’s not over until I finish this race

It’s not over until I learn to embrace

who I am and who I’ll be

it’s not over yet for me

It’s just too comfortable that it’s sad
cuz’ I feel like I’m here to stay
cuz’ I’ve been sitting here
in this room for the past
three hundred and sixty five days

oh never gonna stop now
oh gonna reach the top now
even if I fall down a thousand times
oh yeah I’ve been waiting
oh I feel I’m fading
but I’m never gonna give up
I’ll be alright I know
I’ll be just fine I hope.

Summertime and the living is eassyyy

Hello ladies and ladies! Hope you all are having a lovely and relaxing summer! I am currently upstate at my friend’s house this shabbas…you will never guess the street name….Happy Avenue! How wonderful is that? It just makes me want to put a smile on my face! My summer has been quite a whirlwind of events thank G-d! It started with me running two trips to Israel in a row. ( Yes I know I’m a bit nuts, but it was beyond unbelievable!) Basically that meant touring, traveling, and not much sleep for 21 days straight with a weekend break in between. And i couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

I love doing kiruv/Jewish outreach and showing my fellow people how fulfilling and enjoyable Judiasm is. To me, the trips didn’t even feel like work, I was the one who felt like I was on a trip and getting to experience our Holy land in the most beautiful and spiritual way possible! I managed to squeeze in some shows…..one for each trip, plus some. During one show in particular, i was overcome with appreciation and inspiration. I had the honor of performing in a show run by the women who were judges in a singing competition that i was in during my year in Seminary.

Sometimes in life we feel like were stuck, not growing, not moving, not progressing. And during that show i remember how i felt when I released my first album, only to fly to Israel the week after to learn and do a tour of my music four years ago. I had NO clue what the future held and I didn’t know how my music would get spread if I only sang for half the population ( because of the requirement for men not to listen to women sing). Well that is when i got into the top ten in the only women’s singing competition in the country, and started performing in Seminaries, shuls, women’s events, you name it :). So i felt extremely thankful to G-d that only a few years ago I was starting out not sure what to expect, and now, four years later, i can say that i have had many opportunities and blessings since that time.

So remember I warned you before that I am just a little nuts? :P The day after i got back from Israel ( and there is soooo much more to tell you about the trip, believe me!) I was back in the airport flying to Las Vegas…..yes after getting off a eleven hour flight I was back on a plane, by choice. I realized that I would be extremely jetlagged and exhausted upon my arrival back in the US but i couldn’t turn down this opportunity, so i went, and it was really enjoyable. I performed at a Bat Mitzvah ceremony for many beautiful young girls who have been learning and searching through their Jewish Heritage. The audience was full of teens, moms, grandmas, maybe even some great grandmothers, and it was just awesome! The crowd was great and soo fun to chat with after! I was really glad that I went, especially when I got home the next day and had the lovely day of Shabbas to rest, breathe, and rejuvenate!

To make a long story short, I was in the studio for three days straight the following week, working on six new songs that you will soon be hearing! Then i was off to Pittsburgh to visit family and attend a friend’s wedding……from there i flew to Chicago for a concert and another wedding! What was unique about the show was that it was in collaboration with a brand new Tznius clothing company that i teamed up with! The clothing is beautiful and all the skirts and dresses will cover your knees! How insanely great is that?! Women and girls came to try on and purchase clothing before the show, so much fun! You can all check out the new and colorful line at http://www.honestlymeclothing.com happy shopping! You can also check out the clothes on Facebook by liking ” Honestly me clothing”. I absolutely love the idea of tznius and colorful clothing and I’m sure you do too. G-d didn’t make this world in black and white for a reason! When all of the fun and games ended I came back to my apartment in Brooklyn and got back to regular life….. until the camp shows start :) I hope to have more adventures like these very soon! Wishing you all a super fun, friend filled, Iced coffee every day ( yes I’m obsessed!) summer :)

<3 Your friend, Shaindel

What a day!

Wow okay so where do i start? I am sorry that I havn’t written in so long, I’ve been super busy! I spent the month of January in Israel, and i got to do a music tour, which was really fun. Most of the songs that i have ever written, were written in Israel. There is something so special about the land, the people, the air. It was my first time back since my years abroad in seminary ( 4 years ago!!!) Way overdue. The year and six months i spent in the holy land after high school were the best times of my life! It  changed me as a person, the way i see the world, and inspired me to write about everything that I went through.

Almost every song on my two albums was written there and i had so many beautiful, and inspirational moments. This time around I got to see teachers, friends, family members, fans, and got to have my favorite drink in the whole world……..drum roll please….ISRAEL ICED COFFEE. Go out and get yourself a cup, you will not be disappointed. I think i had a nice, sugary, creamy, blended, coffee almost every day :) eek, I’ll try not to think about the calories.

OK so what i really want to tell you about is what went down today. I had a great time this morning doing an interview with a very prominent newspaper in New York about Jewish women in the arts, my experiences singing for women only etc. More details to come soon. From there i ran to do girls choir in a local High School in Brooklyn. You should hear those gals sing! They are doing great and have their first performance this week!

The next activity of the day was a concert in Bais Rivkah High School. I got ready and hopped in a cab. The first crazy thing was that i went to elementary school there and have not been in that building in about 14 years. (My family moved to NJ when i was in 7th grade so i switched schools.) Once the show started i saw 100’s of girls in front of me, many of whom were wearing crazy costumes, in honor of the jewish holiday “Purim” coming up. I have never seen a crowd with so much energy and personality! Neither have I ever heard an audience that knew my lyrics SO well that i could barely hear myself sing at some points! It was soo much fun watching the girls dance, sing, and sway.

That might have been one of the most enjoyable concerts that i have ever done. What topped the night off was the beautiful feedback that i received from the faculty. Sometimes i get interesting comments about my music being too funky, too english, too whatever. Well these special teachers/faculty members were so sweet and told me the evening was inspiring for the girls, and that the songs had nice Jewish content. I was wearing a colorful flowery (of course) dress and dangly aqua and gold earrings, and she complimented on how tznius I was. (as opposed to saying i was too colorful or different) That meant THE WORLD to me.

All i want to do is help women/girls, to inspire them to love being jewish,and express myself in this beautiful and vast world that G-d created. And the MOST beautiful thing was……they got it.They understood the message i was trying to convey, and instead of telling me to wear black and stand still the whole concert, they let me sing and dress colorfully, tzniusly, and made me feel so good about what i am doing.  Sometimes i get feedback that is a little different than that so it was really refreshing and uplifting for me to hear :)

My message to you all is keep climbing the ladder and going for your dreams even if you fall sometimes, or if people tell you that the ladder is too high and you won’t make it. You will make it but you have to keep going up even when people try to push you down. In the past I have wondered if  it’s worth doing music. People sometimes share negative and hurtful opinions, and I only want to do the right thing and inspire others . Well you know what? it’s worth it. For me to help one Neshama (soul) or uplift someone from feeling down, makes this all worth it. So I, Shaindel Antelis, will keep on climbing.

New song “Everywhere” sung by Mendy Antelis

I must tell you what a tzadik (righteous person) my little brother is. A few months ago he said “shaindel can you write me a song about how amazing Hashem (G-d) is, and how He is everywhere”? I said YES! Then a new song was born called “Everywhere”. I’ve been hearing mendy sing over the years and kept telling him how wonderful his voice is! It was such an honor to work on a song with him. This song is available to download for FREE. So download, enjoy, and share with your friends and family! :) And remember Hashem is always there for us even when life is challenging….

“EVERYWHERE”

Thank You for all You’ve given me

I have a home and eyes to see

I know that You are always there

You’re listening to all of my prayers

Chorus

Hashem (G-d) is in the sky and He can help you fly

But first you have to believe

Hashem is everywhere you can feel Him in the air

He’s everything that you see

oh oh oh oh oh oh

Verse

I live my life just to serve You

so please help me see only truth

when life gets tough and the night is dark

You lift me up You are my spark

Hashem (G-d) is in the sky and He can help you fly

But first you have to believe

Hashem is everywhere you can feel him in the air

He’s everything that you see

oh oh oh oh oh oh

And I just want to spread Your light

nothing ever felt so right

the Torah is our guide

So I’ll spread my wings and take flight

Chorus

Hashem (G-d) is in the sky and He can help you fly

But first you have to believe

Hashem is everywhere you can feel him in the air

He’s everything that you see

oh oh oh oh oh oh

Thank You for all……..

There will be lots and lots of flowers, princesses……. well i can’t give away everything you’ll just have to wait and see ;)
Women and girls have the ability to spread so much light and goodness into the world if we do what’s right. G-d wants us to be ourselves and express ourselves but in an appropriate way. So get ready for the video and start spreading the word! There will also be a new contest with AWESOME giveaways very soon!

What a cold and snowy weekend!

Can you believe this snow in october?! I was shocked to see the beautiful white snowflakes sticking to the ground this early in the season. If you’re like me you stayed inside all shabbas and dreamed of spring. (Only six months away ;) ). Either way here’s a new song to warm you up a little. It’s about how yes the weather can be very cold and unpredictable, and life can be very  scary and confusing. If we remember that Hashem is guiding us through the cold nights, the sun can shine all year long. :) I feel like I always end up in the same situations which equals me asking G-d for very similar things all the time, usually in song form. Here’s my new song called….

“Out In The Rain”

Verse

I’m sorry if i ask You

for the same things every day

I know nothing goes past You

so please send some good my way

I can’t see in this darkness

how will i pass these tests

You know i try my hardest

so please help me with the rest

cuz You put me here now

so I’ll get through somehow

chorus

It may be cold out in the rain

But i know that we’re together

G-d i wonder why this pain

hope it won’t last forever

i know You have a plan

just wish i could understand

i feel so lost in this world, so lost in this world

verse

my mind is filled with questions

should i go left or right

i really need some answers

so i can sleep at night

with so many directions

how can one be sure

that they’re going the right way

and won’t get lost anymore

Cuz You put me here now

so I’ll get through somehow

It may be cold out in the rain

but i know that we’re together

G-d i wonder why this pain

i hope it won’t last forever

i know You have a plan

just wish i could understand

i feel so lost in this world, so lost in this world.

AMAZING SHOW!

Hey Guys!

I performed at Leah Forster’s show last night at the Millenium Theater in Brooklyn with Kineret, the Bas Kol Band, and lots of other talented women! It was a wonderful, packed show and so much fun to be in! It was great to meet some of you there and share my music. Here are some pics of the show. Were you there? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
Love,

That they said they would keep

Make a little change make a little move

We all said Naaseh Vinishma

All that You say we’ll do

It’s getting harder to breathe

It’s getting harder to see

Do we ever think about the words that we speak

There’s a war going on what are you gonna do

Everyone matters so go on an choose

We fell deep into a sleep

Everyone is breaking promises

That they said they would keep

Make a little change make a little move

We recieved the Torah and Hashem uplifted our souls

Why are we losing faith pretending we don’t know

Everyone has a spark please don’t let go

Everyone is breaking promises

That they said they would keep

Make a little change make a little move

Cuz’ when we were about to fall you were right there saving

Us from all our troubles whoever tried to bring us down

Heart And Soul Album 
 

      1.Thunder

Seeing G-d playing such

      a strong role in my life through good and hard times. 

      When nothing goes right

      And I’m in need of some insight

      At the end of the day

      I think about what they all say

      That the only reliable source is You

      Tell me is it true 

      Chorus

      I feel the thunder

      Pulling me under

      The rain is coming down

      I see the signs

      And I realize

      That you heard me cries

      That you heard my cries 

      This can’t just be coincidence

      With the repetition of these incidents

      A voice was yelling look at me look at me

      I didn’t want to look before but now I want to see 

      Chorus 

      Bridge

      I know that You’re blessing me

      Even when You’re testing  me

      And I know that Your way

      Is the only way 

      Chorus 

2.L.O.V.E. 

 Work on yourself, find the reason for your existence, and search for the truth.

      What am I doing here

      What is my life about

      What if I asked away

      And never found out

      These questions scare me

      Why can’t I see clearly 

      Chorus

      It’s about love

      And finding the connection

      With the one up above

      It’s about love

      It’s about love 

      Realize your actions

      Don’t run on automatic

      Ask for forgiveness

      Until you have it

      Just keep your head up high

      I know life’s hard but you’ll get by 

      Chorus 

      Bridge

      Life can be beautiful

      Though living can get so painful

      You gotta take the good from the bad

      And remember all the joy that you had 

      Chorus 
 

  3. Fate

 Realizing that some things are out of our control, let go and let G-d take over.

      I was ready to give up

      My emotions all bottled up

      Suddenly it became clear

      The light at the end was coming near 

      Chorus

      Fate is not in my possession

      After all I’ve learnt after all I’ve seen

      I have one confession

      I used to think my

      Life was according to my plan

Life was according to my plan

      But now I see that

      It’s really in the palm of G-D’s hand 

      Stop thinking so hard

      Give your aching head a break

      Be careful with what you feed your soul

      G-D’s watching you and He’s in control 

      Chorus 

      Bridge

      I didn’t know

      The direction of my path

      Now I found some clarity at last

      And I know that fate… 

      Chorus 
 

4.Don’t Do This

Reach your amazing potential, don’t do things that will hurt you, regardless of how painful your situation in life may be. 

      You have a smile

      That makes your face light up and your eyes glow

      You could be so amazing

      You have such great potential

      But you keep bringing yourself down

      I used to like having you around 

      Chorus

      Don’t you want to live a long life

      It’s not time to say goodbye

      Seeing you hurt yourself

      Makes it hard for me not to cry

      Your life could have meaning

      If you worked a little bit

      Hear my voice…don’t do this 

      I know your life’s not perfect

      But hurting yourself is not worth it

      I can say this a million times or more

      But if you don’t listen what am I wasting my breath for

      You keep bringing yourself down

      I used to like having you around 

      Chorus 

      Bridge

      Don’t you want your children to continue your name

      If you do stop playing such a dangerous game

      G-D is not the one you should blame

      G-D is not the one you should blame 

      Chorus 

5.Something About You (Shema Kolainu) 

 The power of prayer, desiring closeness to the one up above.

      As the sun comes up

      The first thing I do

      Is open up my heart and soul to You

      You’re so far at the same time so near

      I wonder are You really here 
     Chorus

     There’s something about You

      I can’t describe

      Can I be close to You

      I would have nothing to hide

      Though I don’t understand

      The reasons behind Your plan

      I’m putting my life in Your hands 

      Please accept my words

      Everything I say

      I beg of You don’t turn me away

      You’re the only One

            Who knows my hopes and my fears

            So please accept my prayers

            Chorus

            Chus Veracheim Aleinu 

            Chorus  

 6.You’re Not Alone

We all go through hard times, you are never alone, a brighter day is right around the corner.

      Sometimes you find yourself in a place

      All you want to do is escape

      You have confusion written all over your face

      Where is happiness don’t you want a taste

      Where is happiness don’t you want a taste  

      Chorus 

      The doors just closed they’re locked nice and tight

      When you break through I know you’ll be alright

      Is it impossible to find a place like home

      I’ll come with you so you’re not alone

      Cuz’ no one likes being alone 

      When I’m faced with situations

      So many choices I need to make

      Every single decision

      Is a risk that I’ve got to take 

      Chorus

      The doors just closed they’re locked nice and tight

      When I break through I know I’ll be alright

      Is it impossible to find a place like home

      Come with me I don’t want to be alone

      Cuz’ no one likes being alone 
 

      Bridge

      It’s time to go it’s time to leave

      Behind all the pain, behind all the grief

      Tomorrow’s a new day

      Good things will come your way

      Believe what you believe

      Believe what you believe

      Chorus

      The doors just closed they’re locked nice and tight

      When we break through I know we’ll be alright

      Is it impossible to find a place like home

      We’ll go together so no one’s alone

      Cuz’ no one likes being alone 

   7.Blessed

 My mother is my love, my life, my inspiration

         this song is for every mother out there. 

      Mother dear you never complain

      Though I know that I must drive you insane

      Mother dear you’re like a spiral

      On a notebook that keeps me in line 

      Chorus

      And I am blessed to have you in my life

      Our togetherness gets me through those hard times

      You mean everything you mean the world to me

      And if you weren’t by my side I wouldn’t be anything 

      Mother dear you’ve taught me all I know

      So I am writing this song to show

      You made me who I am who I am today

      Your wise words have helped me along the way 

      Chorus 2x 

 8.Evil Inclination

 Winning the battle against the Evil Inclination / Yetzer Hara.

      It’s an emotional rollercoaster

      Stomach drops head pounding

      When you talk the way you talk

      I find it astounding

      That after all I did

      You couldn’t give 

      Chorus

      Anything in return

      Besides for some painful burns

      And I’m not about to let you walk all over me

      I am no one’s door mat when will you see 

      This trip has got to stop

      I don’t give out free rides

      You’ve taken all you could

      Well I realized

      Don’t hurt anyone else

      And may G-D send you help 

      Chorus 

      Bridge

      Can’t you see that I’m gone

      I was never wrong

      I’m not coming back

      Can you handle that 

      Chorus 
 

 9.This Road (Baruch Shem Civod)

 Being drawn to G-D, and knowing that He will lead me on the right path. 

      Your voice is calling my name

      I’m drawn to You my life will never be the same

      Your presence uplifts my soul

      You’re the only One who can make me whole 

      Chorus 

      I’m ready to take this road

I don’t know where it will go

      Lead me somewhere

      And I’ll take it from there

      I’ll dig deep down inside

      I’ll let go of my pride

      Baruch Shem Civod Malchuso 

      This is the first time that I found something real

      I feel You near me though You’re concealed

      You’re my guide the one I trust

      I’m Yours and I can’t get enough 

      Chorus 

      Bridge

      So I’ll keep on

      Walking straight

      Until I

      Find my way  

      Chorus 

10.When I Get A Raise

Choose to be happy NOW, life isn’t always easy but you can appreciate what you have and change your mindset. 

      I always see people who look miserable

      They have everything but act like they have nothing at all

      If they never see the gifts that G-D gives them

      Maybe someday He’ll take them away

      No one ever said that life was easy

      It’s pretty difficult actually 

      Chorus

    Maybe when I get a raise

      Or when I lose ten pounds

      This vicious cycle goes around and around

      Being happy is a choice

      I can’t keep waiting and waiting

      If I live that way life would just be frustrating (frustrating, frustrating)

       Verse

    It’s not easy to change your mindset

      Everyone procrastinates saying I’m not there yet

      Look inside your self find the solution

      Don’t base your happiness on condition

      No one ever said that life was easy

      It’s pretty difficult actually 

      Chorus 

      There’s always gonna be

      Someone who has more

      But if you look again

      There’s always something worth living for 

      Chorus 
 

11.Little Voice 

 Don’t listen to voice inside your head (or to the people around you) that tell you you’re not good enough, because you are incredible and don’t ever forget it! 

      You said I wouldn’t get far

      And I’d never discover what my strengths are

      After all of those years

      After all of those tears

      I can’t believe I listened to those words 

      Chorus

      You were wrong

      Yes I was wrong

      It was me putting myself down all along

      That little voice

      Inside my head

      Needs somewhere else to live instead

      I’m moving you out cuz’ I have been mislead 

      You said I was unlikable

      And the words that I spoke made no sense at all

      It’s time to say good bye

      Please don’t ask me why

      We both know the damage that’s been done 

      Chorus 

      Bridge

      You said I couldn’t take it

      You said I’d only fake it

      And that I wouldn’t survive

      Through the hard times in my life

      You said I wouldn’t make it 

      Chorus 

  12. We’re Doin’ Alright

Times are rough but family, friends, and simple joys, help   us get through. 

      Hey mother why do you cry

      Wipe those tears falling from your eyes

      You work way too hard to be this upset

      So listen when I say don’t give up hope yet 

      Chorus

      Though the days get hard the going gets rough

      Can make anyone say they’ve had enough

      The stress builds up and the money’s tight

      But I’d say we’re doin’ alright 

      Money doesn’t mean everything

      It can’t show you the joy that life can being

      I’m a simple girl so if you’d ask me

      I’d say the best things in my life are free 

      Chorus 

      Bridge

      We have family

      We have laughter

      We have good times

      What more could we ask for

     Two loving parents

      That do more then they should

      Well if you asked me

       I’d say were doing pretty good

      That’s what I’d say

      I’d say were doing pretty good 

      Chorus

 

13.It’sTime

No experience lasts forever, you have to keep on working and keep on growing. Every end is a new beginning. 

      It’s time I’m going

      Vulnerable not knowing

      Where I’ll be where I’ll go

      Hoping that I’ll continue to grow

      And reach as high as I can

      I hope that I meet these demands 

      Chorus

      This has been the best time of my life

      I need some help now

      Will I be alright

      I’ll need reassurance

      I’ll need endurance

      If I want to survive if I want to get by

      I will make it 

      Hello goodbye

      I didn’t know that time was gonna fly

      In the future challenges coming

      I’m gonna face them

      No more running

      I’ll reach as high as I can

      I hope that I meet these demands 

      Chorus 

      Bridge

      This is just the beginning

      Of the meaningful life I will be living

      This is the start of a new stage

      I’m turning over the page 

      Chorus
