Believe 03:19
Don't listen to those haters, you can make it on your own Just believe in yourself and everything will be alright Do what you love, do what you like, do something that will make you fine Just put in your work, put in your time, next thing you know you're on your prime So give it your all Don't let the obstacles push you down again, your are strong and powerful People who doubt you are wrong about you You can make it on your own Do what you love, do what you like, do something that will make you fine Just put in your work, put in your time, next thing you know you're on your prime So give it your all

Keep Dancin' 02:07
You child, can I talk to you, I think it's about time that I start telling the truth I am something that you'll never understand, you know I could show you if you'd just take my hand I'm just tryna' say, we all have problems big and small, but somehow we'll find a way to get through it all If you just put on your dancing shoes and feel the rhythm you have, when you groove it makes it easier to fell happy when you're sad So keep dancin'

I'll be there for you I will care for you I'll give you my heart from the start I'll give you my mind it won't talk much time I only wanted to one time see you laughing But I'm not so sure what's happening It's such a shame our friendship had to end But maybe we will someday meet again Just what you mean to me Maybe if you'd listen you would see Black day, stormy night - no love, no hope in sigh I don't know what it is about you but I just can't live without you I only wanted to one time see you laughing But I'm not so sure what's happening It's such a shame our friendship had to end But maybe we will someday meet again And if you're evil I'll forgive you by and by Although you've hurt me I will never cry Make you happy when you're sad - make you good when you are bad When I think about you with someone else My heart drops and I'm overwhelmed Maybe you'd understand If you'd just take my hand My love for you will never die But I guess it's time to say goodbye,

Thankful 4 U 04:31
VERSE 1: On the bus I fell asleepAnd dreamed of a mountain steep, of obstaclesI had to climb- I woke up just in timeGot back home and I shut the doorFound a photo on my bedroom floorReminded me of our camera full of frozen memoriesCHORUS:Thank you for the loveThat’s all I ever wanted to say Thank you for the loveWhen I’m alone you bring a smile to my face.BV’s under Chorus:You...you, you, you, you.....are a symbol of everything new, new, new, new new...You...you, you, you, you....always there whenever I feel blue, blue, blue, blue...I’m so thankful for you.VERSE 2:As the water hit my windowpaneWith every drop I could hear your nameReminded me of the loyalty and all that you mean to meYou change so many livesI fall into your ocean eyes I promiseI will always be right by your sideCHORUS:Thank you for the loveThat’s all I ever wanted to say Thank you for the loveWhen I’m alone you bring a smile to my face.BV’s under Chorus:You...you, you, you, you.....are a symbol of everything new, new, new, new new...You...you, you, you, you...you make life have a different view, view, view, view... I’m so thankful for you. BRIDGE:You taught me to believeYour bringing out all the best in meNow I truly can succeed- look at all – all the things I have achieved.Laughing lives foreverLove has never been so true- going everywhere together...The sky is always the perfect shade of blue.Love is better....so much better.... Life is better...with someone like you....CHORUS:Thank you for the loveThat’s all I ever wanted to say Thank you for the loveWhen I’m alone you bring a smile to my face.BV’s under Chorus:You...you, you, you, you.....are a symbol of everything new, new, new, new new...You...you, you, you, you....always there whenever I feel blue, blue, blue, blue...You...you, you, you, you...you make life have a different view, view, view, view... You...you..you...you... you make every dream come true, true, true, true...I’m so thankful for you

Serendipity 06:06
Serendipity: By Purple Playground RAP:Creativity can’t be killed- art is like a pill. A drug that puts power into our generation. Pushes us through any complication. And yet....the man in power can’t even bear the serendipity to our creativity. Verse 1: Strolling round the block and soon I stumbled through your door. I said hello-and realized I was fighting a trojan war. Your luminescent looks don’t reflect who you truly are Just sit back and relax cause it’s about to get bizarre I can tell your optimistic the glass is always half full You and me we just don’t mix like a china shop and a bull Come and have some fun with us ... It’s gonna be a jubilant time No need to be auspicious cause the funk will blow your mind Chorus: Serendipity The power of our generation They can’t stop us now Serendipity Creating positivityYou can’t shut us down Verse 2: This feeling is illuminescent, losing all control Taking it further than the present, shaking my entire soul We have the vision for the future, can you hear us calling out? We’ve got problems and solutions do you know what we’re talking about?People can’t see eye to eye just because different colors show The luminescent glow of the sun being covered up by smoke Come along and join us ... It’s gonna be a jubilant time No need to be auspicious cause the funk will blow your mind Chorus: Serendipity The power of our generation They can’t stop us now Serendipity Creating positivity You can’t shut us down
