        THE ANGEL’S SONG 

Music & Lyrics by Sharie Rose Ramsey

With all my heart I love you so...
be with me and you will feel
all the world reach up to kiss you
all the world reach up to caress you
all lives will be blessed by you
all time will feel eternal, do you
believe... in the mysteries of life, do you
feel... beyond the bounds of space and time, do you
love... beyond the hell of hate and fear, do you
hear... the music of the spheres, do you
know... that truth will bring you wisdom
beyond your years?

all lives... all time... do you?


           BREAK FREE!            

Music & Lyrics by Sharie Rose Ramsey

(R&B rift) Whoopie!
We'll see!
Love me!
Break Free!

Listen to your heart and don't get so busy
Break through to truth and your life gets so easy
Travel in the right circles, you don't get so dizzy
Don't carry 'round your baggage, it's not designer luggage

Take it easy, don't get so busy, n' you won't get sooo... dizzy!


Whoopie!
We'll see!
Love me!
Break Free! 

 


                        DEFINE ME
Music & Lyrics by Sharie Rose Ramsey

At night I’m in the dark,

When I wake I face the world, oh

I can let my fears lock up and confine me

Or I can be free, I can be me oh

And I could let my imperfections define me
Or I can be free, I can be me

 

I can let my fears lock up and confine me

Or I can be free, I can be me oh

I can let my tears suffocate n' drown me,

or I can be free, I can be me, oh...


You wanna be cool?   Question all the rules
You wanna be hot, show ‘em what ya got

You gotta be what's true within you

You gotta be completely undeniably the truth within you

 

I will let my soul wake up n' design me

Nothin' else, nothin' else will define me

Nothin' else nothin' else will confine me

I will be the whole of life within me
 

I can let my fears lock up and confine me

Or I can be free, I can be me, oh

 

And I could let my imperfections define me
Or I can be free, I can be me

 

I can let my fears lock up and confine me

Or I can be free, I can be me oh

 

I can let  my tears suffocate n' drown me,

or I can be free, I can be me, oh...

 

I will not buy their lies, I will not join the cries

I will not be the blinded by their pies in the sky

 

They will not fight for me, they will not die for me

They invade other nations, stake their claim, n' what's they're name?

Corporations, that's their game, wanna be rich, who's to blame?

 

When I wake I face the world, oh

I can let my fears lock up and confine me

Or I can be free, I can be me oh

And I could let my imperfections define me
Or I can be free, I can be me


 

                 DOESN’T ANYTHING MATTER!   

Music & Lyrics by Sharie Rose Ramsey

You think you can break my heart
n’ walk away n’ leave me all alone in the dark
You wanted me to be your only girl
Don’t know why I never seemed to know you were my whole world ‘til you walked away…

‘til you walked away,
n’ left me in the shadow
You took away… ay….
The light of my life
You left my… heart shattered

Doesn’t anything matter?
It’s a crime… against my humanity
Where’s your sanity?

Doesn’t anything matter!


 

             HILARIOUS! 
Music & Lyrics by Sharie Rose Ramsey

CURIOUS... about the way he loves
SERIOUS... about this life I live
DELIRIOUS... from all the love in me
LUXURIOUS... how wondrous life can be....

FURIOUS... THAT THEY WOULD LIE TO ME
THEY WORRY US THAT THEY COULD BE SO MEAN
HILARIOUS...THAT WE EVENTUALLY BE-come one…

I’M CURIOUS, I’M SERIOUS n DELIRIOUS,
HOW LIFE CAN BE…
LUXURIOUS, BUT I’M FURIOUS,
OH THEY WORRY US IT’S SO HILARIOUS
How they hurry us along…
so we never catch on…

curious... about the way he loves
serious... about this life I live
delirious... from all the love in me
LUXURIOUS... how life can be....

FURIOUS... THAT THEY WOULD LIE TO ME
THEY WORRY USTHAT THEY COULD BE SO MEAN
HILARIOUS... THAT WE EVENTUALLY BE-come one
I’M CURIOUS, I’M SERIOUS AND DELIRIOUS
HOW LIFE CAN BE –LUXURIOUS, BUT I’M FURIOUS,
OH THEY WORRY US, IT’S SO HILARIOUS
that we eventually be come one 

 

     HOW MY LOVE FOR YOU GROWS 
Music & Lyrics by Sharie Rose Ramsey

In the back of my mind, (the back of my mind)
At the top of my list, (top of my list)
From the bottom of my heart, (bottom of my heart)
The pit of my stomach, (oh oh, oh-oh)
From the depths of my soul, (depths of my soul)
And by the seat of my pants, (seat of my pants)
On the heels of my feet, (heels of my feet)
And the tips of my toes, (oh-oh, oh)

Heaven knows, how my love for you grows
In the back of my mind, at the top of my list
How my love for you flows
From the bottom of my heart (bottom of my heart)
My love for you grows

In the pit of my stomach (oh-oh, oh)
In the depths of my soul (oh- oh)
By the seat of my pants I live for the chance
To fulfill your love, how I live for your dance

From the tips of my toes, on the helps of my feet,
By the seat of my pants, my love for you grows
From the depths of my soul, in the pit of me,
From the bottom of my heart, every bit of me,
At the top of my list, in the back of my mind
At the head of my life, my love for you grows


              IMAGINE ME      

Music & Lyrics by Sharie Rose Ramsey

SOLO: Tears won't fall, the years don't always crawl
              Sometimes they fly... No need to cry

Imagine me… as the light of love
Forever free… embracing all you need
~And when~ I look down from up~ above
I feel the flow of Niagara Falls
and oh, it's so... true... I'm loving you

And now I see... how wondrous life can be
love is free... flowing out of me

And if~ I could live my life over again
I'd feel the power of...
Niagara Falls... flowing out of me

CHILD & LEAD VOCALIST:
   Imagine peace... as the light of love
   forever free... flowing out of me

And when~ you look out at the stars at night
You see the pieces of my broken heart
Lighting up the sky… the universe of life
Imagine peace...

SOLO:  Tears won't fall...  the years don't always crawl
                                Sometimes they fly...
Lead Vocalist:  No need to cry 
                Now I know why… 


               INTENSIFY THE MOMENT 
Music & Lyrics by Sharie Rose Ramsey

Intensify the moment, oh…
To know, oh… you’re so… eternally free

We don’t expect a rose …to be open and heavenly, oh no…
Until she’s blossoming and lovely… oh…

And we know, a lily shows all her glory… mmm…
as she grows… oh
the honey bee… doesn’t come around
Until the beauty of her bloom is in radiant view, oh no…

She doesn’t show…
You’ll never know…
Until she grows…


A LOVE THAT LASTS FOREVER      

Music & Lyrics by Sharie Rose Ramsey


I... I... I... ( I feel alive, I feel alive, I feel alive )
I didn’t die from all the times
You said goodbye, ah… oh…
( I feel alive, I feel alive, I feel alive )

I’ve returned all your memories,
But they keep livin’ rent free in me.
The magic of our love…
shines forever from inside of me…

I keep tellin’ it to go away
but it  * always *  stays.
Who’s to say who betrayed
the truth of love we are…

Oh, my shining star
You’re the twinkling in the dark
You’re the hope, the love n’ joy
You’re the truth that ends all war

How to do what’s right, oh (Love is Light, I feel alive, I see the Light)
“Love, and you will know…”

And throughout my life…
I’ll be the one most brilliant in time (n’all because of u)
                          Repeat Chorus
A love that last forever… doesn’t lie
A love that last forever… doesn’t lie
 


                      MAYBE I'LL FIND
Music & Lyrics by Rachel Lily Ramsey & Sharie Rose Ramsey

 

Should I go find myself or

Should I just get lost

Could I search the world for who I am?

 

Should I sit n' listen?

Should I look n' learn?

What about the truth within me

What about my happiness

 

How can I believe you have the answers

when what I see is such a mess

In the depths of peace, the light of love shines

the power of faith and human kindness ....

 


NORTHERN LIGHTS ON A SOUTHERN LIFE
 Music & Lyrics by Sharie Rose Ramsey

Northern Lights:  I don't suppose you wonder why
your holy life should you make you sigh
your world is what you dream
you make up your mind
you make believe

Lovers: Northern lights on a southern life
a rainbow out of time
you fly me high into the sky
you take my life, you change my mind

Northern lights... shine on my agony
Why? ... does no one hear my sigh?
Tonight ... I say a prayer for light, oh...

Northern Lights:   I want you to know
who you really are
just feel your loneliness,
feel the vastness of your emptiness
your vastness last for all time

Lovers:  And the Northern Lights sing:
Trio:  I know you don't wanna die
but your lonely heart makes you cry
Lovers:  our world can be anything
Trio:  you make up your mind
you make believe

 

 

    PARADIGM TO PARADISE 
Music & Lyrics by Sharie Rose Ramsey


I know you’re feelin’ upset
Your life isn’t what you want yet
There’s one thing you can bet
You’ll soon become a shadow
Of your silhouette

And all you hoped will fade away
So don’t regret your life today
There’s a way you can escape
It all depends on who you date

So save the drama for your mama
Give a kiss to your sis
You won’t be gone for long nah
You won’t be stayin’ out too late

 

Don't think twice about their lies

Go from paradigm to paradise 

 

           QUEEN OF THE NIGHT

  Music & Lyrics by Sharie Rose Ramsey

 

As the sun goes down, Venus appears
Mercury and Jupiter, Saturn and Mars… (pick-up tempo)

The Wandering Gods shine down, Meteor lights rain down
Mysteries n miracles magically appear, appear, up here up here Timeless tragedies   Tropical summer   Desert storms
Awaken our heart to love, turn us from war
                        
(Queen of the Night’s staccato first 26 notes overlap with)
And you know, n’ you know, n’ you know, n’ you know
What’s true- deep inside of you-

Rise up!  I call on you to rise up!

Wake up!  Throw off all you think n’ rise up!
The light inside is brighter than all the stars in the heavens
        (Queen of the Night’s next staccato 39 stratospheric notes overlap)

Wise up!Take heart!Have faith!Be Brave!

Leave behind all the darkness
Turn your mind to the brightness

of the eternal life we all are.

Rise Up!  Wake Up!  Have Faith!  Be Brave!
Be the depth of truth you are….

And you’ll be free forevermore…

Wake Up!  Take Heart!  Have Faith!  Be Brave!
Be free you have all you need! Be free you are all you need!
The love and light and truth you are.  Rise up!

 

THE ROYAL TREATMENT          

Music & Lyrics by Rachel Lily Ramsey, Rebecca Rose Ramsey                                                                     & Sharie Rose Ramsey

 

A priceless masterpiece, a work of art, is abandoned

The name's not Michelangelo, da Vinci, or Picasso,

You won't find 'em in a museum

where people come from all over just to see 'em

 

They're not in a place where donations are taken

They're not in a castle or palace

They're discarded in New York, Miami, and Dallas

They're discarded in Minneaspolis, Indianapolis, and every metropolis

When will we stop all this?

 

This masterpiece is in need of the royal treatment

The name's not Monet or Renoir

But they're the true works of art, magnificent and irreplaceable

 

The name's not Michelangelo, da Vinci, or Picasso

The name's not Monet or Renoir

But this masterpiece is in need of the royal treatment

Come and wonder at this priceless work of art

 

 

              SHE BELIEVED

Music & Lyrics by Sharie Rose Ramsey

She loved being alone, Her soul was her home
And love flowed, she always knew the way, and every day

She felt the joy of her heart, she believed in the stars
And the love of the moon, and the light of her life
She would sing as she danced, she believed in her chance
For happiness, Oh… she was blessed

She broke through to truth, she could see all that is
She was given a beautiful life, and all the while

She felt all the joy of her life
She believed in the power of love and hope
She had faith in the light, she could see what will be
She believed in the chance
For happiness, Ah… she was blessed

She felt the joy of her heart, she believed in the stars
And the love of the moon, and the light of her life
She would sing as she danced, She believed in her chance
For happiness, Oh… she was me

 

             THE SPIRIT IN ME
    Music & Lyrics by Sharie Rose Ramsey

I just find myself… in a world… all alone
Hopin’ that the sun… will shine… on a new day…
And I’ll find my way…

I find my way when I look… from deep within… my soul
Oh, the things I see… with the spirit in me… I’m free…

Every time  I feel the mood… in you…
I know… it’s true… you want somethin’ new
A new day, a new life, a new way
That’s why I’m here to say…
everyone help me set the mood,
the lights, get ready, now action

(instrumental)

the light, get ready, now action
the light, get ready, now action
the light, get ready, (the spirit in me), now action
the light, get ready, (the spirit in me)
the light (the spirit in me) 


                  
SUPERSTAR
Music & Lyrics by Sharie Rose Ramsey

I'm not just a girl... lost in this world
(oh no I'm not just a girl, I'm not JUST a girl)

I'm somethin' quite spectacular
Never heard before in the vernacular
There's so much more to me...
than you could ever see...

I'm a Superstar, I'm the Light that's Alive within me
I'm a Superstar I shine my light on my life believe me
I'm not just a girl, oh no, I'm not just a girl
I'm a Superstar I've got a world that revolves around me
n' what I think and believe astounds me
I'm a Superstar n' the darkness dissolves around me
'cause I believe in the light that keeps me... alive...
                               
(instrumental)
I'm a Superstar... n' no matter what you are
You gotta be true to you heart

We're all Superstars we've got a world that revolves around us
We're all Superstars what we think and believe astounds us

We're not just a girl, oh no, we're not just a girl...
We're all Superstars...
we're alive within the light within us
We're all Superstars...
we shine our light on our life, believe us... Superstars

 

UH-OH!

Music & Lyrics by Rachel Lily Ramsey

                        & Sharie Rose Ramsey


Uh-oh, I forgot his name
Uh-oh, forgot his number
Oh… we were saying goodbye
I… was on Cloud Nine

Oh… I was weak in the knees
When he… held me in a tight squeeze
Please, please… let me breathe

Woe, I remember his eyes
Oh, I remember his smile
Oh, his voice, a symphony
The words were poetry…
Oh-ah I… remember his lips
And I will always… remember his kiss

So I… go back to the place
Where I’ll … first saw his face
That smile… shinin’ back at me
Those eyes… so heavenly

Uh-oh, I forgot his name
Uh-oh, forgot his number
Oh… my summer could be funner
If I… could remember his number…
If I… could remember his name…

n I will always remember his eyes, n always remember his smile
n always… remember his lips n always… remember his kiss
And always… (repeat and fade) 


 

                   WHISPER OF LOVE
          
Music & Lyrics by Sharie Rose Ramsey

If you listen...
you can hear the music of another world
you can feel the magic (timpani)

You can be free... You can breathe...
You can fly... and *feel* alive...
(decrescendo)
I'll take you where... all your cares...
(pianissimo) fade away

If you listen... you will feel the magic beyond the tragic

(timpani)

You will be free... Come with me...
There is another world for you to be...
all you are...

Listen to the whisper of love, n you are (whisper) free

It is done....
(spoken) It is done.


         WHO ARE YOU? 

 Music & Lyrics by Sharie Rose Ramsey

Whoa-whoa-whoa... (Whoa-whoa-whoa...)
Whoa-whoa-whoa... Oh...
Don’t think I don’t know what’s goin’ on in your heart,
in your mind, in your world, and in your soul
We’re all runnin’ out of time, Oh…  I want you to know
    
Here’s a new angle, a new point of view
    
Remove the spectacles, Undo the common attitude
    
Look through… Your heart
Lemme ask you, “Who are you?”
Lemme tell you what you do
Where do I begin? Where do I end? (Breathe in)

Without the air I can’t even sing
Without light, I am blind
I am... alive, I am... on fire
Lemme ask you, “Who are you?”
I am... iron... without it I would die
I am... Mountain Waterfalls, Moss and Rocks
This is my body, This is my dream,
I am... alive, I am... the brilliance of the sun...
without it I would die, I am... alive... I am

Lemme ask you, Who are you? Lemme tell you what you do
Where do I begin? Where do I end? (Breath in)
(spoken) I am the earth and sky, the oceans and the stars
              I am the singer of the universe, I am the song I sing
Lemme ask you, “Who are you?”
This is my body, this is my dream

How can I think when you’re poisoning me! Who are you!

 

 

          A WHOLE OTHER WORLD             

Music & Lyrics by Sharie Rose Ramsey

It's hard to know who's tellin' the truth these days
I have a hunch a sneaky suspicion they want to eatcha for lunch
I'm callin' a spade a spade, I'm callin' a truce for you
if your experts had the answers would we be in such a mess?
la-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta la-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta
la ta ta ta ta ta - la ta ta ta ta ta

They threw you a curve ball, they called it a bell curve
says most of you are average, some are fools, a few have courage
but you rise to the occassion and the moment is now
la-ta-ta-ta da-da  la-ta-da-da ta-ta

Step beyond parameters set by theoretical perspectives be eclectic
We're parting the curtain, we're stepping beyond the veil
a whole other world is just waiting for you

The metaphor for your adoring world
The miracle of life is about to be born
Imagine the butterfly emerging with wings on high
and all because the people believe they have the right to be free
be free, be free, be free, be free… oh, be free

We're parting the curtain, we're steping beyond the veil
a whole other world is just waiting for you

step beyond parameters set by theoretical perspectives
And all because the people believe they have the right to be free
be free, be free, be free, be free… oh, be free
