You Being Loved
(written by Jimmy Dooley & David Gossett)
Verse:1/Have you ever caught a smile walking down the street, Been lifted up by the words that a friend would speak, Has your iphone ever picked the perfect song, In the shuffle of a messed up day gone wrong. Were there times that, You heard the birds sing a good morning melody to kick off the day, Did the sun rise to meet you from the bright blue sky, When you were caught in the pressure of this crazy life. If you look around, You'll forget out, That's not coincidence

Chorus:/ That's you being loved, That's you being loved. Sometimes the little things that we see everyday, Are God's way of saying that's you being loved

Verse:2/Sometimes we lose sight of the good things in life, Cause we focus on what's wrong & forget what's right, There are days we don't see how much we are blessed, We get blinded by our struggles & consumed by our stress. But Mercy finds us, Our Father guides us, He gives signs everyday just to remind us, That we're surrounded by His love everywhere, Wherever we are going He is already there. If you look around, You'll see without a doubt, There's so much evidence

Repeat Chorus:

Bridge:/ There's living proof, All around you, That you are being loved. You see it displayed in so many ways, That you are being loved

Repeat Chorus:

 

That’s How I See Me
(written by Jimmy Dooley)
V:1/ From the outside looking in, It may appear that I’m fighting, A battle that I can’t win, From another’s point of view, I am just chasing a dream, That I’ll never hold onto, But there’s a bigger picture, Than what meets the eye, Cause I see myself in a different light, Got my vision focused, Expectations high, I’m never giving up, I’ll cross that finish line

Chorus:/I see myself winning, I see me claiming victory, Cause I will not let a few setbacks, keep me from my dreams. I see my self rising higher & higher, Reaching my destiny, That’s how I see me, oh oh, That’s how I see me (Turnaround) oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

V:2/ I’ve been told “It looks hopeless”, I’ve stared in the face of impossible, So many times before, I won’t let fear blind me, I will let my faith guide me, As I step out into the unknown, But there’s a bigger picture, Than what meets the eye, Cause I see myself in a different light, Got my vision focused, Expectations high, I’m never giving up, I’ll cross that finish line

Repeat Chorus:/

Breakdown:/ I visualize it, One day I’ll be flying, Nothing can keep my feet on the ground (2x)

Bsection Repeat:/

Repeat Chorus:

Tag: I see me winning, Claiming a victory, That’s how I see me, That’s how I see me, I see me rising, Reaching my destiny, That’s how I see me, That’s how I see me

 

Pain Is Real, But So Is Hope
(Written by Jimmy Dooley)
V:1/ A true life story, Not something that's imagined, You've been a witness, To the dreams that have been shattered. You're left speechless, There's no words to describe, How deep the hurt goes, When it cuts you like a knife, Sometimes you have to walk through darkness to step into the light, but don't give up the fight

Chorus:/ Pain can break you down, But hope builds you up again, When pain tells you that it's over, Hope says this is not the end. So keep going & keep holding on when you feel like letting go, Cause pain is real, but so is hope.

V:2/ I've seen it happen, Beauty rise from ashes, With new beginnings, As hope broke through the shadows. Your future is brighter, Than how it looks right now, Don't stop believing, Let faith consume your doubt. You're walking through the darkness now, But soon you'll step into the light, So don't give up the fight

Repeat Chorus:/

Bridge:/ The pain deep inside you says “give up & walk away” But hope is telling you to stay.

Repeat Chorus

 

Unwanted
(Written by Jimmy Dooley)
Verse:1/It’s the lonely feeling even when there’s people all around. It’s the silence screaming out above the voices in the crowd. It’s the emptiness that fills you, that keeps hope from coming in, It’s the voice of doubt that says "you’ll never win." It gets hard to keep on going, It’s enough to make you cry, When you feel unwanted all the time.

Chorus:/ You might be broken, down to nothing, And scarred within your soul. You might be hurting from the times you fell & feel like letting go, You might think that you’re unloved but you have never been more wrong, There’s many things that you might be, but you’ll never be unwanted, no you’ll never be unwanted

Verse:2/ You say, it’s hard to remember, a time you weren’t forgotten. You feel like you can’t breath, Cause deep inside you’re drowning. It seems like you don’t fit in, So you just want to hide, Forever you’ve been crawling but just once you want to fly. And It gets hard to keep on going, It’s enough to make you cry, When you feel unwanted all the time.

Repeat Chorus:/

Bridge:/ To the outcast, To the pushed aside, To the reject, To the left behind, You are wanted, Yes you are wanted. Cause you’re more than the labels, that life has put on you, You are wanted, Yes you are wanted.

Repeat Chorus:/

 

Let Love Speak Louder
(Written by Jimmy Dooley)
Verse:1/ The sound is almost deafening, It pierces to the core, We’re listening for truth but all we hear is noise. But in a world that’s filled with chaos, We can be the voice of hope, Put a silence to the hatred as the light of love is shown. They say that actions speak much louder than words, I will live my life so that love can be heard

Chorus: Gonna let love, love speak louder & louder, Let love, love speak louder. Gonna let love, love speak louder & louder, Let love, love speak louder.

Verse:2/ It seems the voice of hopelessness is screaming in our ear, Drowning out our faith in good, Trying to fill our hearts with fear. So I’m turning down the volume of the negative around me, Cause I’m living positive now that the power of love surrounds me. So if actions speak louder than words, Let’s live our life so that love can be heard

Repeat Chorus:/

Bridge:/ So lift it up lift it up! Let your life speak love. Lift it up, Lift it up! Let your voice be heard. So lift it up lift it up! Let your life speak love. Lift it up, Lift it up! Let your voice be heard.

Repeat Chorus:(2X)

 

The Broken You
(Written by Jimmy Dooley)
V:1/ I know all about you, There's nothing you can hide that I haven't already seen, There's no secrets between you & me, no no. You cover up what's inside, Afraid that I'm going to leave, If I see the real you, And all the things you've been through. But I see who you are not what you've done, There are no conditions to my love, Even at your worst I see the best in you.

 Chorus:/ I'm going to love you when you fall, I'm going to hold you in my arms. I will put the fragments of your heart back together again. There's no such thing as “messed up too much” No such place as “not good enough” In spite of all your flaws through every scar & bruise, I will love the broken you

V:2/ Damaged goods that no one wants, Your scars tell a story all about guilt & despair, Of a life that seems beyond repair. You don't trust anyone, Betrayed & hurt so much, That it's hard for you to open up & even harder to feel loved. When you're down & out & feeling empty, Show me where it hurts & I will mend it, I will pick you up & carry you until you're strong enough.

Repeat Chorus:/

Bridge:/ You have never lived an unloved moment, You'll always have a place where you belong, So bring all the shame, Bring all your pain, Come just as you are

Repeat Chorus:/

 

Stronger Than That
(written by Jimmy Dooley)
V:1/ I could have stayed down, I could have gave up, I could have just quit when the times got tough. Could’ve walked away, Said that it was too hard, Gave in to the pain & let down my guard. But I was born to be a fighter, “I Give Up” are 3 words, That you’ll never hear me say

Chorus:/ I’m stronger than that, stronger than that, When I get knocked down I will get back up. I’m stronger than that, stronger than that. Life has hit me hard but I’m built to last. I’ve been hurt, I’ve been scarred, Still I keep pressing on, You’re never gonna see me turn back, Cause I’m stronger than that, stronger than that

V:2/ My will unbreakable, My faith unshakable, When the battle’s over, I’ll be here, I’ll be standing tall. My skin is thick now, I have learned from my pain, Yesterday’s struggles, Give me strength for today. Cause I was born to be a fighter, “I Give Up” are 3 words you’re never gonna hear me say

Repeat Chorus:/

Bridge:/ Even when the odds are stacked against me, I will not throw in the towel, Cause I am a victor not a victim, I will fight to the end, I’ll make it through somehow

Rap Verse: Life hits hard so I'm rocking my armor, If I get knocked down I get up & hit harder, My problems are big but my dreams are larger, I will not lose that's why I keep my guard up, Keep my arms up I will not stop sighting, Until I stop breathing, Conquering these titans, Fight with all my might & push past the pain, Press forward I'm moving the chains because I'm

Repeat Chorus:/

 

Save Me From Myself
(Written by Jimmy Dooley)
V:1/ I fall down, I get up, But then I fall back down again, I fight so hard to be a better man, But it feels like a battle that I can’t win, Somehow failure finds me, Everywhere I turn, I make the same mistakes a million times, It seems like I never learn, So why do I do, These things I don’t want to do, Save me from myself, I’m crying out to you cause

Chorus:/ I’m not the me that I want to be, There’s gotta be a better life for me, I know there’s a better way, I know there’s a better way, I’m praying God will help me change, I’m tired of all this hurt & pain, When I know there’s a better way, I know there’s a better way, So can you save me from myself, So will you save me from myself,(Save me, Save me)

V:2/ I’ve messed up, I’ve fell short, I’ve done some things that I regret, I try hard to put the past behind me, But a guilty conscience, Won’t let me forget, I thought I was strong enough, But now I’m on my knees, When I stare in the mirror, Looking back I see, My own worst enemy, I’m trying to pick myself back up & turn my life around, But only You can save me from myself, You’re my only hope now

Repeat Chorus:/

Outro: Save me, Please Save me, Save me from myself (4x) add lib between

 

Who Were You?
(Written by Jimmy Dooley)
V:1/ When they see you, Do they really see you? Or do they only see the shell of what you have become? When they hear you, Do the really hear you? Or do they only hear the words that you've been told to say? They think they know you, But do they really know you? Or do they only know the character you play? If the younger you could see you now would you recognize yourself, Or did you become somebody else?

Chorus:/ Who were you before this world told you who to be? What happened to that person? What happened to those dreams? When did you stop believing, you can do anything? Who were you before this world told you who to be?

V:2/ You are alive, But are you really living? Is your heart still beating, Or is it just keeping time? You say you're happy, but are you really happy? Is that a smile on your face, Or just a mask you where? What's your purpose, Do you know your purpose? Are you who you're meant to be or who life has allowed you to become? Once upon a time there was a kid, So young, So free, So innocent, Where did they go?

Repeat Chorus:/

Bridge:/ Those dreams you have inside, Are waiting to come back alive, Your story isn't over (2x)

Repeat Chorus:

End: When they see you, Do they really see you? Who were you before this world told you who to be?

 

Good Enough
(Written By Jimmy Dooley)
Verse:1/ You feel so misunderstood, The way they look at you, They think they know everything, But haven’t got a clue, The things that you hear them say, Have cut you to the bone, Those words that they said hurt you, More than any sticks & stones, But you don’t have to let opinions make you feel insecure, Just be yourself & boldly walk the path of who you are because

Chorus:/ You’re good enough, Good enough, You’ll never know how much you are loved, And you are so perfect, Just the way that you are, You’re good enough, Good enough, Don’t try to be someone that you’re not. You can’t be replaced, You are one of a kind, So put a smile on your face, Lift up your voice & say, I’m good enough, Good enough, I am good enough

Verse:2/ There’s a great purpose for your life, That’s why God put you on this Earth, So don’t ever let anyone make you feel less than you’re worth, You don’t have to be afraid, To let the real you show, So take off that mask you’re wearing, And let everybody know, That nobody’s opinion, Will make you feel insecure, Just be yourself & boldly walk the path of who you are, Because

Repeat Chorus:/

Bridge:/ It doesn’t matter how short you are, How tall you are, How big you are, How small you are, What matters is how you live your life, We’re all different in our own way, So there’s no need to be ashamed, Embrace the differences in you, They make you who you are, and you are

Repeat Chorus:/ 

 

I Have Overcome
(Written by Jimmy Dooley)
V:1/ If I could tell you one thing, That I learned along the way, Is that it wasn’t always easy, But I wouldn’t change a thing, I’ve went through some hard times, There were days I felt alone, I remember many sleepless nights, When I was barely hanging on, When life knocked me down, I’d get back up every time that I would fall, And love conquered all, Oh love conquered all

Chorus:/ I have overcome, I have overcome, There were times my faith was tested, But I never gave up. I have overcome, I have overcome, I’ve been through the fire & through the rain, But I’m still standing strong. I have fought a lot of battles, Some I’ve lost, And some I’ve won, But I’m an overcomer, There’s nothing I can’t overcome

V:2/ I know what it feels like, To face this world on your own, To suffer pain, hurt & rejection, To search for strength to carry on, But I know what it feels like, To stand on a mountaintop, To live life to the fullest, And to love with all you’ve got, When life knocks us down, Someone will be waiting, To catch us when we fall, Cause love conquers all, Oh love Conquers all

Repeat Chorus:/ (2x) 

 

It Gets Better
(Written by Jimmy Dooley)
Verse:1/ Right Now, Things aren’t looking good, Times are tough & hope is hard to come by. And Somehow, when one problem ends another one begins, You can’t get ahead. Is there a light at then end of the darkness? You question if you can keep going on. But don’t give up, don’t get discouraged, soon these troubles will be gone.

Chorus:/ It gets better (better) It’s not gonna be like this forever, You are gonna smile again, Your situation’s gonna change, The sun is gonna shine again, Tomorrow is a new day. Somehow it will all work out, Hard times don’t last forever. I promise, It gets better,

Verse:2/Sometimes, Life can knock us down, It hurts so bad, We feel like giving up. And You cry, Cause it seems to you, That things just keep on going from bad to worse. But there is a light at the end of the darkness, Keep your head up & keep going on, Don’t ever give up, Don’t you get discouraged, Cause soon these troubles will be gone.

Repeat Chorus:/

Bridge:/ So tell you heart to dream again, Tell your heart believe again, Tell your heart to love again, You’ll overcome again, This isn’t the end!

Repeat Chorus:/

 

It Hurts
(Written by Jimmy Dooley)
V:1/ Another day, And here you are, Another losing fight, Can't let them see, Don't let it show, You keep it hidden deep inside. You tell yourself, To shake it off, That it will be alright, Try to be strong, Hold back the tears, Don't ever let them see you cry, Afraid that they will think you're weak if you say how you feel, So many secrets in your heart, Pain is the only thing that's real

Chorus:/ You pretend you're standing tall even when you're falling down, And you say everything is fins but there is nothing working out, You try to be brave, Smile through the pain, Convince everyone they don't need to be concerned, but I know it hurts, I know it hurts

V:2/ Try to forget, But can't forget, You still remember well, Life took a turn, You hadn't planned, In the struggle you lost yourself, Built walls so high, That no one else could ever get to you, Been hurt so bad, You've hurt so long, You question what you thought was truth, But sometimes pain's the teacher of the lessons we must learn, Sometimes life is fair, But other times it hurts.

Repeat Chorus (2x)
