I Should Have Left You (Louis Toliver Jr, Swartz LA)

We weren’t lovers. We weren’t friends. Though we “tried” to be. You knew that I was scared to stay with you. You knew I wanted to leave but you convinced me to stay. You told me that we could make “us” work. I would do my way and you would do your way. How could I have ever believe that mentality would have ever lead down to the path of “us.” But, how can I blame you for making me stay when I could have left? How could I blame you for my weakness then, when I should thank you for my strength now? You were not really there then and you are not really there now. I was just me "there," wherever I was. That is all that matters. And I know that now.

Moving Forward (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)

Step by step, I step     I hear the angels sing    Hope, today, they bring  Flying up with pep  I become Heaven's rep    Riding along God's wing
Moving forward can be hard     Struggling through today      Living life is not all play The fortune teller draws a card It warns that Fate has no guard     Never let pain get in your way
Flying high with my life      I am moving, so I'm living     Heart and heart, I keep giving I will one day meet my afterlife  Everyone's past contains strife       Let my future be thanksgiving
When the steps run out      I will just fly and fly and fly      I leave the past with a goodbye Up on God's wing, I won't pout  Going to heaven, I do not doubt     In hell, I was just a passerby 
Moving forward, strength will build     Letting go is the hardest part     Vitality comes from being smart Trust in those that are strong-willed Our honest actions will be fulfilled      I step, I sing to you, I fly, I depart
