Lyrics: Pry

Somebody’s drowning, I

Have lost my way.

Somebody’s chanting, I

Love the way you pry.

The bass keeps playing;

Same old song keeps ringing.

I’m going round and round

While you just stand your ground.

There’s nothing I can do.

You just had to go.

Make your way into a feud…

Strange, I couldn’t stop you….

Somebody’s drowning, I

Have lost my nerves.

Somebody’s chanting, I

Love the way you pry.

The flood keeps pouring.

Water won’t stop rising.

Oh, thunder roars and roars-

It’s nothing to allure.

Media hides away

As the world crash and burns.

Seeking corrupting a feud.

Strange, I couldn’t stop you.

Somebody’s drowning, I

Have lost my nerves.

Somebody’s chanting, I

Love the way you pry.

Rumors hold no key

In a room of two or three.

Who’s to trust you see

The snake is slithering near…

Waiting to strike!

There’s nothing I can do.

There’s nothing I can do.

There’s nothing, nothing I can do.

You just had to go.

Make your way into a feud.

No, I couldn’t stop you.

In a world soaking with needs,

Somebody’s drowning, I

Have lost my nerves.

Somebody’s chanting, I

Love the way you pry.

In a world soaking with needs,

Somebody’s drowning, I

Have lost my nerves.

Somebody’s chanting, I

Love the way you pry.

In a world soaking with needs, I

Love the way you pry.

Prompt: Childhood

During my childhood, I grew up in PA. I wasn’t born there. I wasn’t born in US. But I’ve lived here since I was about two years old.

Although I can’t remember much of my childhood, I remember I used to read a lot, a few favorite teachers, playing basketball, riding my bike and falling on the driveway resulting with a bloody knee.

I remember having babysitters come and go. Only one I remember liking out of the two I remember.

My brother used to deliver newspapers. Whenever he couldn’t, I’d do it. My first cassette my Dad purchased for me was Britney Spears’ …Baby One More Time. My brother got a CD player and I begged my Dad for one. He wouldn’t buy a CD player due to the pricing, so I asked for a cassette player (remember those?). The cassettes were a bit cheaper than the CD players anyways.

I remember purchasing my next cassette- NSYNC. I danced to I Need Love during the school talent show, with the help of a student teacher who choreographed my dance routine because all I did during the first meeting was cartwheels (I know, so dumb, right?). I have to say doing cartwheels at that time was better than my shyness. At least I tried.

I remember church trips to a water park every summer and alterserving at mass. Back then I was really big church goer and loved volunteering Sunday’s for Sunday school. My neighbor directed religious education those years. While everyone my age sleeps in on Sunday’s, I woke around 6am to leave with her to the school. I stayed there until 12:00 mass. Then, went home with parents.

Back when I was a child, the home in PA, I used to be afraid of a room. The room where guest enter through the front porch door. I used to believe something or someone was behind the couch and whenever I was alone or my parents were in the tv room watching a show, I could never go near that room.

I remember walking around in the basement singing songs because I was so scared of singing in front of people (yeah, like no one could hear me from upstairs :P).

The school I went to, during my childhood, there mascot was hornets. My favorite teachers were Mrs Rice and Ms Gracenin, who married the year I had her as a teacher.

Selling Girl Scout cookies and going to places like Sea World and Savannah, Georgia. Savannah, Georgia was the first place I heard about Bloody Mary. Some of the girls stood in front of a bathroom mirror of a house we were looking inside, and they started saying “Bloody Mary” three times, then screamed.

Quiet, loner girl with a few friends and the only best friend was my writing. It was where I shared my emotions completely judgement-free.

A friend started calling me Licia because when we took Spanish that was my Spanish name. She also called me Liser. That was back in middle school days when we and another friend added “er” at the end of our names.

During my childhood, I felt depressed, anxious and the only things that created a spark of happiness, if only for a second were: writing a poem or lyric, listening to music, and volunteering. Just helping people brought feelings in my heart I can’t describe. It felt good to help.

During my childhood, I saved more easily than I do now. In fact, I saved cash that my brother sometimes asked for money from me. Also, once in awhile (very rare) my Dad asked to borrow. Now, I just suck at it.

Compared to my childhood, I was more patient back then than I am now. I also was able to sense when someone was feeling down or positive/negativity around me. That feeling made me scared at times. I lost the feeling as I grew older.

Well, I wrote a lot more than my head, at first thought. What about your childhood? What happened? What was your favorite part? Your worst? Your fun times? Best memories? Etc.

Thanks for reading. Have a great rest of Sunday!

*peaceGod Bless*

Poem/Lyric: Adventures Are Waiting

Adventures Are Waiting
(Inspiration Ariel from The Little Mermaid)
October 8, 2013

Somewhere out there out of this sea
Adventures are waiting just for me.
So many wonders, so many dreams.
But how do I know what’s best for me?
How can I leave my sea family
Into a land where they dance on their feet?
Out there, out of the crystal blue water
Those wondrous mysteries are waiting for me.
And I’m not the girl who swims unnerved.
I go wherever my heart sings a melody.
They all know this down here under the sea.
Oh how I wish to be there where my heart sings.
Oh how I’d give up everything
Just to run on legs to my own perfect beat.
Smiling under the sun,
Reaching to the clouds,
Chasing birds all day long.
Oh how I’d give up everything.
‘Cause I can’t say “no”.
For somewhere out there out of the sea
Adventures are waiting for me.

Found on my Facebook. This was when I wrote a poem a day. Hope you enjoyed!

*peace&God Bless*

Lyric: Waiting For You

When the stars don’t shine my way,
And hope for this basket case drains,
There’s nothing left today,
Look above. Look above.
Shine God’s love.

I love you like the sunrise.
Still love you at midnight.
No matter what you do,
I won’t take back my love for you.
I love you like you love sugar.
I love you as you are.
So come as you are.

I’m waiting for you.
When the rainbow hides from rain,
A voice of a child silence remains,
Life can be cruel, you know…
Look above. Look above.
There shines God’s love.

I love you like the sunrise.
Still love you at midnight.
No matter what you do,
I won’t take back my love for you.
I love you like you love sugar.
I love you as you are.
So come as you are.
I’m waiting for you.

I’m waiting for you…
So leave your heart with me.
I’ll give you what you need.
This love is unconditional.
My hand is out for you,
I’m waiting for you.

I love you like the sunrise.
Still love you at midnight.
No matter what you do,
I won’t take back my love for you.
I love you like you love sugar.
I love you as you are.
So come as you are.
I’m waiting for you.

My Soul’s Awake

*Based on Katy Perry’s Wide Awake*

(My soul’s awake)
(My soul’s awake)
(My soul’s awake)
Yeah, I had my eyes closed
for awhile
and you wouldn’t even know
(My soul’s awake)
I was dead inside, oh no.
My soul’s awake.
Now realization
it hits me
I don’t think of what
(My soul’s awake)
I was doing to myself.

Now that I see
what I couldn’t see
I can take a step in.
Let me calm down.
Liar in disguise
You brought me up
Then let me fall on on, on the concrete.

Lying on cement ground.
Awakened from the light.
I’m hearing words from the High.
Yeah, I’m lying on cement ground.

(My soul’s awake)

Not feeling dead inside
I picked up what I need
And left the rest behind.
(My soul’s awake)
You wouldn’t even know, oh no, no.
(My Soul’s awake)

Yeah, God has created me
for what you didn’t see
back when I was so lost.
(I thought it late)
But it never was
the end.

Now that I see
what I couldn’t see
I can take a step in.
Let me calm down.
Liar in disguise
You brought me up
Then let me fall on on, on the concrete.

Lying on cement ground.
Awakened from the light.
I’m hearing words from the High.
Yeah, I’m lying on cement ground.

(My soul’s awake)

Storm clouds fading by.
All my walls built so high.
(My soul’s awake)
Now I’ve broke down them all.
God knows what I’ve done
helping me see the truth.
(My soul’s awake)
So, I’m no longer confused.
(My soul’s awake)

(My soul’s awake)

Yeah, lying on cement ground.
Awakened from the light.
And I am hearing words from the High.
I’m lying on cement ground.

(My soul’s awake)
(My soul’s awake)
(My soul’s awake)
(My soul’s awake)
(My soul’s awake)

I’ll Keep Your Heart Alive

You taught me how to fly.
Go beneath the sky and above the stars.
You’re always on my mind
and when you go just know
I’ll keep your heart alive.

When I was on my knees,
so lost and all confused,
you brought me to my feet.
Seeing is believign.
But you brought me hope
when all I had were scars.
And this songs for you.

You taught me how to fly.
Go beneath the sky and above the stars.
You’re always on my mind
and when you go just know
I’ll keep your heart alive.

When I was flying low,
so miserable and lone,
your love was all I had.
I’m dreaming for something.
But you brought me hope
when all I had were doubts.
And this songs for you.

You taught me how to fly.
Go beneath the sky and above the stars.
You’re always on my mind
and when you go just know
I’ll keep your heart alive.

You didn’t know it then,
I’m sure of this.
But every passing day
I thought of you.
You taught me to see the stars.
Don’t mind what people say.
It’s all okay.
You’re beautiful the way you are
even if the words sound so far.
It is still in my heart.
And because of you
my heart is still beating.
So here’s to you:

You taught me how to fly.
Go beneath the sky and above the stars.
You’re always on my mind
and when you go just know.
I’ll keep your heart alive.

Yeah, it’s something I can’t deny,
feeling low, still reaching to the stars.
Knowing I can confide.
And when you go just know.
I’ll keep your heart alive.

I’ll keep your heart alive
with every single step I take.
You’re always on my mind
and when you go just know
I’ll keep your heart alive.

Oh…

I’ll keep your heart alive.

Today I Made A Wish

I’ve been wishing, hoping
But it never comes around.
I’ve been crying, trying
To live every second.

Today, I made a wish.
My hopes, my plans.
Wrote them all down
And buried it in the ground.
Today, I made a wish.
Don’t forget it.

It’s been confusing life
But I just keep holding on.
It’s been overwhelming
To never have you.

Today, I made a wish.
My hopes, my plans.
Wrote them all down
Buried it in the ground.
Today, I made a wish.
Don’t forget it.

I’ve been sitting, waiting.
I’ve been dreaming, pleading.
When will my wish come true…

Yeah…

Today, I made a wish.
Today, I made a wish.

Oh,

Today, I made a wish.
My hopes, my plans.
Wrote them all down.
Buried it in the ground.
Today, I made a wish
And I won’t forget this day.

Today, I made a wish.
My hopes, my plans.
Buried them deep
And today my wish
Just might come true.
