On Busted Knees (Louis Toliver Jr - Swartz, LA)


Your lust for yourself 
Left me standing heartbroken 
No words were left to say 
So easily, so willingly 
You turned your back and left 
I fell down to the ground 
I could no longer walk
I had given you all I had left 
The ground was so icy, hard
It's a challenge to go on
Not when you have no love 
Falling on the slippery of passion
My knees, fractured, damaged
I will never walk the same 
Not like the day we met 
Strong, sure that you'd love me 
But you don't and so I must heal 
Eventually the birds will sing for me 
Like they did that day we met 
I will learn to walk again 
For now, I cry on busted knees

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
