To the 10 Songs in the Album--A New Beginning​:

Help You Heal Your Heart

By Roxanne Smith


-What do you do when you’ve
Given it your all?
You gave it your best
But you still take a fall


All doors seems to close
And you plans are all stalled
How do you cope
And who do you call?


Chorus:
-Call on me and I’ll
help you through
I’ll hold your hand
While you talk about what to do
I ‘ll be right beside you as you
Get a new start
My friend I care about you and I’ll
Help you heal your heart
Oohh I’ll help you heal your heart
Yeah I’ll help you heal your heart


-What do you do when you’ve
Got bills to pay
And you can’t stand your job
Not another single day


Do you quit and pray a new one
Will magically appear?
Or do you stay and tough it out
In misery and fear


Chorus:-Call on me…


-What do you do when
It seems there seems no way out?
You can’t find the sun
And all you feel is doubt


Talking to a friend can really
Help you so
Tell me all your worries,
Let them out and let them go


Chorus: -Call on me…


-What do you do when you
Need some love and care?
When people let you down and you feel
It’s just not fair
When you need some help and comfort
And someone who understands
Someone to really see you and
Who sees a bigger plan


Chorus: Call on me…


I’ll help you heal your heart

Oohh I’ll help you heal your heart

Dancin' In The Rain
By Roxanne Smith


I used to have a heavy heart
I had no energy
Then I decided to forgive
And be grateful to be me


Then illusions fell away and I
Began to realize
Everything that’s happened
I cannot criticize
I learned so much about myself
From all the pain I’ve had
I feel a strength inside my soul
Now none of it was bad


CHORUS:
Time for fun in the sun
Dance in the rain if you’ve got pain
Believe and you’ll receive
Don’t waste time or it’s a shame
Fun in the sun
Dance in the rain if you’ve got pain
If suffering makes us stronger
We’ll be super heroes
Dancin’ in the rain
Dancin’ in the rain
​​
While I was suffering
​I could not find the sun
But somehow getting through it
Now I’m strong and having fun
Life is complicated
Bad things happen to everyone
It’s how we keep believing
That will lead us to the sun


CHORUS:
Time for fun in the sun
Dance in the rain if you’ve got pain
Believe and you’ll receive
Don’t waste time or it’s a shame
Fun in the sun
Dance in the rain if you’ve got pain
If suffering makes us stronger
We’ll be super heroes
Dancin’ in the rain
Dancin’ in the rain


Soon it will be sunny
‘til then you can find us
Dancin' in the rain​
Dancin' in the rain​
Dancin' in the rain​​
Dancin' in the rain​​

I Know You Now
​--John's Song
By Roxanne Smith


​​This song is dedicated to my nephew John
​who died at the age of 26​​
-​-Written July 9, 2008


Sad songs make me think of you
And I don’t even know you
But I feel I can feel your soul
And I don’t even know you
People grieve cause your are not here
And I wish I had known you
I cry cause I see and I hear
And I don’t even know you


CHORUS:
I know you
I know you
I know you but I don’t even know you
I know you
I know you now


‘Cause you are the wind--you are the rain
You are the sunshine after the pain
You are the laughter after the tears
You are the comfort calming my fears


CHORUS--I know you...

‘Cause you are the sky--you are the trees
You are the rainbow giving me peace
You are the hope--you are the smile
You are the joy I’ll feel after a while
After I feel--After I see
After I know you then I will be free


CHORUS--I know you...

‘Cause you are the love, you are the moon
You are the courage that I will feel soon
You are the masterpiece that I’m gonna write
You are the song I sing
You are the light
You are the light
You are the light


CHORUS--3 x


I know you
I know you now

Hole In My Soul
By Roxanne Smith

T​here’s a hole
In my soul
In my soul
There’s a hole


But then there’s truth
Baby I’ve got proof
This Hole is based on lies
God is on my side


And if I can I just believe in
The power of (believing in) my dreams
I can heal and come out
On the other side of all that seems…


To hold me back
Keeps me off the track
Makes me doubt
What I’m all about


But then there’s truth
Baby I’ve got proof
This doubt is based on lies
God is on my side


And if I can listen to that
spark inside my soul
I can power through the doubts
And I’ll emerge and I’ll be whole


And let the joy
Fill my heart
And lift me up
So I can heal… this… part…


Where…


There’s a hole
In my soul
In my soul
There’s a …hole.

Free To Live
By Roxanne Smith​


​​I don’t feel free
Free to be me
I wanna feel nothing’
But the sunshine on my face
I wanna be risin’
to the next highest place
I wanna be free
Free to live


So many times I wake up feeling
doubt and anxiety
I know that it’s all in my mind
So many times I hear myself
Putting myself down
I’m learning that is wrong
And that’s not kind


I deserve better than this
Sadness and self-doubt
I deserve love and comfort
And I’m gonna give it to myself
I deserve all the best
That this planet has to give
I wanna be free
Free to live


REPEAT from beginning


I wanna be free
Free to live!

​​A New Beginning
By Roxanne Smith


A new beginning
I am trusting all my heart
A new surrender
Time alone brings a new start
I know that I am stronger now
I understand what went wrong
I treat myself with kindness now
I’m singing a new song


I trust the learning
I am open every day
To hear the message
That my heart has to say
Before I used to look for love
And lean and doubt and cry
But now I know I’ve got it all
It’s up to me to try


It wasn’t easy
I had to face the pain
You must surrender
Let it out and then you’re sane
Like magic you fall through and then
Something catches you
You realize it's not your fault
And then you believe in you


Was it God
Catching me with such relief
Or the magic
Of the universe and this belief
Does it really matter who
Or what is there for us
As long as we know someone does
Mother Nature’s sunshine loves


I am happy
To know I can stand alone
And give to others
What my soul has always known
If we can set aside the blame
And know it wasn’t fair
Yet we can all begin again
And trust our hearts and share
A new beginning…a new beginning
​…a new beginning

Show the World
By Roxanne Smith
​​You watch the sands of time
And feel the streaming glares of signs
As they seem to roll around
Inside your head
If you stay inside this trip
You will lose your earthly grip
Got to reach inside and
Dare to wander instead



CHORUS:
‘Cause there’s a fire in our souls
God we love this rock and roll
And we can’t hold it in
Anymore
Sing together while we try
‘Cause we’re just a little shy
But the fire in our hearts is so hot
Got to show the world
We’re ready to rock!


The answers are inside
Got to go with the tide
And then you will arrive with
All of you
If you don’t go down this road
You’ll never know who’s running the show
You’re the only one who can change
To make it so.


CHORUS:….


BRIDGE:
Got to let it out
They were wrong and we’re gonna shout it
We’ll show them and then they’ll see
No going back because we’re free


CHORUS:
Gotta show the world
We’re ready to rock Yeah, Yeah
​Got to show the world
We're ready to rock ​

You'll Never Change
By Roxanne Smith


I​​ have tried so very hard my friend to make things work out right.
I have tried to cheer you on and help you through the fight.
But when I stand before you with my wings when I take flight,
You take away the wind you take away my sight.
I finally see the light you’ll never change.


CHORUS 1
You’ll never change. You’ll never change
You don’t know how to apologize and you’ll never change


I am seeing all the colors in your soul-less core of lies.
I can tell now all the sadness in your smiles to one side.
It is deep and hidden in your soul you’ve given up on you.
I’ve tried everything but there’s nothin I can do.


CHORUS 2
You’ll never change. You’ll never change.
You blame yourself under your lies and you’ll never change.


BRIDGE:
​Sometimes you are there for me
When you’re not that’s when you cannot see.
You’re disconnected from your heart and soul, stuck in anger from your victim role.
I keep trying to help you see
I believe in you incredibly.
But now I can see the light.
There’s never change in your peril’s plight.
There’s no hope that you will do me right
because you’ll never change.


Chorus 3
You'll never change. You'll never change.
I've got to move on with my life cause you'll never change.
I've got to move on with my life cause you'll never change.

I'm All Right
By Roxanne Smith


​S​o you’re gone
I’m alone
You think I’m sitting here
By the phone
But I’m not lonely
You’re not my only


You’re surprised
Thought I’d cry
But I’m thinking’
‘bout some other guy
Who’ll treat me right
And take me dancing at night
I’m all right
Yeah I’m all right


Chorus:
When you come around
It just brings me down
All you wanna do is fight
Now I’m over you
I’m onto something new
I’m glad I gotcha out of my life.


Don’t come back
Stay away
Don’t show up on a rainy day
I’ve grown and changed
And you’ve stayed the same
It’s okay
I forgive
Now you’ve just gotta let me live
And move on your way
There’s nothing more to say
I’m all right
Yeah I’m all right


Chorus: 2x
When you come around…


Bridge:
​I feel high
Don’t feel shy
I’m excited about my new life
Don’t feel sad
I feel whole
‘cause I’m the one who’s now in control!


Chorus: 2x
​When you come around…

​Gotta Ride Through the Valley
By Roxanne Smith
​G​otta ride through the valley
Get back on the horse
Gotta ride through the valley
It’s such a rough course
But there’s no turning back
Yourself you must force
Gotta ride through the valley today


Gotta ride through the valley
There’s no other way
Gotta ride through the valley
Feel all your dismay
But the meadows ahead
Soon you can play
Gotta ride through the valley today


CHORUS:
​After I ride through the valley
I always feel better somehow
I always forget it’s the best way to go
The travel was well worth it now


Gotta ride through the valley
The sun’s risin’ high
Gotta ride through the valley
And you need to know why
If I went around it
I’d have missed this blue sky!
Gotta ride through the valley today


Gotta ride through the valley
Get back on the horse
Gotta ride through the valley
It’s such a rough course
But there’s no turning back
Yourself you must force
Gotta ride through the valley today


CHORUS:
​After I ride through the valley
I always feel better somehow
I always forget it’s the best way to go
The travel was well worth it now


Gotta ride through the valley
The sun’s risin’ high
Gotta ride through the valley
And you need to know why
If I went around it
I’d have missed this blue sky!
Gotta ride through the valley each day
​Gotta ride through the valley each day
