Comfortable In My Skin

 

Verse 1:
I make no bones
about who I am
as time marches on
less I give a damn

Like what I like
don't want something new
why sit and worry over
what other people do

Pre-Chorus:
Curiosity and wisdom
sometimes anger, sometimes grace
a poet and a rebel
all reside here in this face

Chorus:
Every line's a journey
to the places I have been
yeah, I'm comfortable
comfortable in my skin

Verse 2:
They say that youth's
wasted on the young
running from the fire
of the Devil's tongue

Tried to laugh and smile
drifting out to sea
heard a million voices
but none heard me

Pre-Chorus:
I may be weird or crazy
but I wear those titles proud
blazing my own trail
'stead of walking in a crowd

Chorus:
Too many years of fighting
time's a game you can not win
I'm finally comfortable
comfortable in my skin

Yeah, I'm comfortable
comfortable in my skin

BEAUTIFUL

 

Feeling down inside yourself,
Scared to reach outside for help.
Afraid of being alone,
Can’t stand who you are.
Scared of what others might see.

 

You are beautiful inside,
Courageous, generous and kind.
A star both inside and out,
Shining up the night.
Always remember how strong you are.

 

Always hearing voices inside,
Scared your not good enough,
Being told you are mad.
Don’t listen to these words,
Don’t change who you are.
You are stronger than you think.

 

You are beautiful inside,
Courageous, generous and kind.
A star both inside and out,
Shining up the night.
Always remember how strong you are.

 

Keep believing in yourself,
Share a smile to the world outside.
Don’t let anyone tear you down,
Because your beautiful.

 

Keep believing in yourself,
Share a smile to the world outside.
Don’t let anyone tear you down,
Because your BEAUTIFUL!

 

You are beautiful inside,
Courageous, generous and kind.
A star both inside and out,
Shining up the night.
Always remember how strong you are.


How strong you are,

Mmmmmmm…..
How strong you,
How strong you really are.

Listening for for the horses 

 

(V1)
Hiding in a woodman's lodge in the forest glade
Trying to survive but we're desperately afraid
Hunting at night, drinking from a river's source 
Listening for the horses of Cromwell's rabble force. 

(V2)
Don't cry dear wife and children one day we'll get away 
Until then we must endure each terrifying day
Fairfax's model army will lose in all due course
Keep listening for the horses of Cromwell's rabble force

(3)
Beware the Roundheads, children they'll kill us if we're found
Our neighbours were murdered and their houses all burnt down
Cromwell hates all countrymen who still support the king
There's no way of knowing what tyranny he'll bring

(V4)
We owned a grand old mansion with servants for our needs
White horses and carriages to take us where we please
Now we hide in terror, scared of being caught
Listening for the horses of Cromwell's rabble force

(V5)
I'll go before the barebones court and try to clear our name
Tell them we are merchants dealing in our trade
I'll swear that we won't fight for the King or for his cause
But keep listening for the horses of Cromwell's rabble force

(V6)
Back at our forest glade, I am met with deathly silence
Our lodge is burnt down yet no sign of Ironsides violence 
Where are my wife and children? Who dares vex with me?
If Cromwell's behind this, he'll learn of Edward Sexby

Final ( spoken)
Sexby was captured and perished in his cell
His crime, plotting to murder Cromwell
He broke down under torture and confessed his evil game
Sexby's wife and children were never seen again
