Lyrics: Package

My son was 6 a couple of weeks ago! This is for him, and just in time for Father’s Day too.

6 years ago it had only just begun,
came into my life and my heart you won.
Big brown eyes, and a smile to stun
all PACKAGED up in a bundle of fun.
It’s been 6 years and so much has been done
all the rumbles and games still keeping me young.
Blessed to bits by the gift of a son.
My top boy – second to none.

The random word for rapping with next week is OYSTER

Lyrics: Saviour

It kinda fascinates me the different ways that I go about beginning to write the lyrics. Sometimes you get an initial concept early on, sometimes it’ll be a rhyme or line that will arrive first. This week I couldn’t get a hook in, and began writing lots of words beginning with S, thinking I’d really do an alliteration piece. But in the end, I’ve nicked the first four lines from another rap I wrote last year. My mate who writes gospel songs asked for a guest 16 bridge in one of his new tracks, and I was thinking about it on the way home and just went in after the opening lines from that, as the concept fitted what I wanted to do with the ‘saviour’ word this week. Basically it’s about randomly meeting up with a guy who turns out to be Jesus.

This guy comes up, calls me by my name,
but I don’t know him – is this some kinda game?
He says ‘Sit down’ and he’ll explain,
Tells me I’m the reason that He came.
Sent into a world of sin and shame,
bickering, bullying, insult and blame.
Death, disease, poverty and pain.
The Son, The SAVIOUR – one and the same.
Gives sight to the blind and healing the lame,
freeing the captives, breaking their chains.
Truth and life coursing through my veins,
I can’t believe it, replay the frame!
To turn my heart from a spark to a flame,
new life will start, with peace in my brain.
Into my life I let The Christ reign,
die to myself – no loss but gain.

Like water on glass, the TEARS stream down your face.
Healing the scars and screams of past disgrace.
Can’t be erased, but in place a new embrace.
There’s love in His gaze, so run into the arms of grace.

Lyrics: FIGURE

I know a J-Hova, but yo, it’s not Jigga.
The Lord I follow – he be a fair size bigger.
Do the work of my God without a finger on the trigger.
Freedom fill your thoughts through the real father FIGURE.

Lyrics: APPLAUSE

Happy 2015, was sitting on half of this over Christmas, here’s the full lines:

Gimme a badass beat to tear up the dancefloors,
a funk filled force, not four-to-the-floor.
Beat so loud – neighbours’ banging down the doors.
No jeers from the crowd, cheers, hear the APPLAUSE!
Try something different, I rhyme for a cause.
No rap battle wars, tit for tat, settle scores.
Treat the girls right, call ’em ladies not whores.
I’m living in the light. Why not stop and take a pause?

Lyrics: BEACH

A bit late this week, due to the busiest working week of my life taking over my brain. I’m quite pleased with this in the end:

Don’t wanna play the street life, I’d rather live the BEACH life –
Eat right, sleep tight, practice what I preach life.
Keep my speech and beats hype. My kids I’ve gotta teach right.
Receive Christ ‘cos He’s nice – my life He went and bleached white.

Next random word to rap with: Applause.
Might get it in before Christmas, we’ll see……..

Lyrics: suicide

They say you can run, yeah, but you can’t hide.
Especially when the battle’s going on inside –
against deceit, greed, ego and pride –
trying to fight it by yourself is like SUICIDE.
Receive the peace, the release only God can provide.
He sent His son for everyone with arms open wide.
So much grace supplied, why would you wanna be denied?
In His love abide, or stay outside – it’s your choice, yeah, you decide.

For next week the random word is: observation

Lyrics: TEAR

Back using the exploding teardrops theme again –

I hear the sound of His heavenly TEARdrops exploding
Falling down around on a world that’s imploding.
Our souls eroding, fear full foreboding.
What happened to the passion from that palm sunday He rode in?

Next week the random word for rapping is: SUICIDE
