YOU'RE SAFE Song lyrics
 

in the springtime

written by : M. Elliott, P. Robinson, C. Henry

In the springtime
You can see nature full and free
High up in the trees
You can hear the birds them singing songs of freedom

Out in the open
Everything there is fresh and clean
Unlike the life I'm here living
All creatures great and small
Living together one and all

chorus
I wanna be
The way I wanna be
That is the way I wanna be
Like the birds in the tree yeah
They're going tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet
Singing songs of freedom
Singing songs of freedom

Living in the city
No chains around my feet
But still I am not free
No handcuffs on my hand
But I've got my dignity

repeat chorus

See as a youth living in the city
Can't get no work
Can't get no job
Can't get no money to put in my pocket
I can't get a thing to have of my own

That's why I wanna be free
That's why I wanna be free
Like the bird in the tree
Like the bird in the tree
They're going tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet
Singing songs of freedom
Singing songs of freedom

Yes in the spring time
You can see nature full and free
High up in the trees
You can hear the birds them singing songs of freedom

Out in the open
Everything there is fresh and clean
Unlike the life I'm here living
All creatures great and small
Living together one and all

I wanna be
The way I wanna be
Just like the birds in the trees
They're going...tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet
They're going... tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet

Should I

written by : M. Elliott, P. Robinson

chorus
Should I put my trust in you
Should I put my faith in you
Should I let you stick around
Should I let you float around

My desire was for us to live clean and strong
Then we could go on in life to live and grow

But woman you went away
Left me here to stay
Now you're coming back to me
On your bended knees

repeat chorus

Should I, should I, should I, should I
Let you float around, stick around, stay around, oh yeah

It's not so long ago
That we were together
Sharing and caring for each other
The people used to say
Our love would never fade
Now will I be the fool
To let you stay here again yeah

Should I let you stick around
Should I let you float around oh yeah

Should I, should I, should I, should I
Let you float around, stick around, stay around oh yeah
Should I, should I, should I, should I
Let you float around, stick around, stay around oh yeah

You wrote me a letter
You found some one better
You say you can't face me
And you're sorry you hurt me
My heart was torn in two
I didn't know what I should do

Should I let you stick around
Should I let you float around oh yeah

Should I, should I, should I, should I
Let you float around, stick around, stay around oh yeah

It's not so long ago
That we were together
Sharing and caring for each other
The people used to say
Our love would never ever fade
Should I let you stick around
