Close Survival

(The sixth song in the “Pushing Up Daisies” album by Kerry Powers.)

They said it was a close one, that we were lucky to be alive. But what do they know, as they never went through what we went through. No one has survived what we have survived, and I’m sure no one has lived to tell the tale…

It was a close survival, but in reality, we should have been dead, there’s no way we can ever get the respect that we have craved for so long. Maybe we shouldn’t have done what we did, or maybe we were meant to die. So sure we survived, but I bet that maybe next time, we’re not going to make it out anymore…

So now where do we go from here? How do we go on when the world doesn’t want us alive? We were meant to die that day, but instead of that, we angered the gods by surviving….

It was a close survival, but in reality, we should have been dead, there’s no way we can ever get the respect that we have craved for so long. Maybe we shouldn’t have done what we did, or maybe we were meant to die. So sure we survived, but I bet that maybe next time, we’re not going to make it out anymore…

So what do we do? How did we end up like this? What have we done to make death stalk us? Weere we not meant to live at all?

It was a close survival, but in reality, we should have been dead, there’s no way we can ever get the respect that we have craved for so long. Maybe we shouldn’t have done what we did, or maybe we were meant to die. So sure we survived, but I bet that maybe next time, we’re not going to make it out anymore…

Forget About Me

(The third song in the “Pushing Up Daisies” album by Kerry Powers.)

Today I learned a very hard lesson, and that is to never let your guard down. Yet you went and played me for a fool, and I can never get over that at all. But now comes the time for me to cut you loose, as you never cared about me at all. Maybe you’ll learn that you and I aren’t worth the lies that you tell…

You say that you care about me but I know you always lie, so you can just forget about me. I guess what I have wasn’t good enough for you, so you can just forget about me. I wonder what I did to make you walk away from me and why I let you string me along, but now I know better. So maybe it’s time for me to move on, so you can just forget about me.

And did you forget about the times we spent together, especially when my imaginary world was calling my name? How could you forget what I did for you, when you weren’t feeling the same about me? I pity any fool who says that they love you, because I know you’re going to destroy them the same way you destroyed me. But I’m nobody’s cruel vengeful ex, and there’s more to me than what you think…

And I know I had to give up everything I liked just to be with you. But you were willing to hold on to what you shouldn’t have instead of giving it up for me. I wonder who the foolish one is, because it’s not me. And now that I’m free and independent, you’re going to be the lonely one.

You say that you care about me but I know you always lie, so you can just forget about me. I guess what I have wasn’t good enough for you, so you can just forget about me. I wonder what I did to make you walk away from me and why I let you string me along, but now I know better. So maybe it’s time for me to move on, so you can just forget about me.

If I Didn’t Have You

(The second song in the “Pushing Up Daisies” album by Kerry Powers.)

You and me, I know we’re meant to be just the way we are. You and me, as far as we can see, are the kind of people who meant to be together. When we first, we both knew that it was true love. And if you say that our love is wrong, you are a fool, for you will never know what you’re missing out on…

But when they tell us that we can’t be together, they don’t know that that they’re wrong, and they forgot what love truly is, and that love is meant to last for a lifetime…

And if I didn’t have you, I don’t know what I would do. I wouldn’t be able to live my life, nor would I have the strength to carry on. And if I didn’t have you, I don’t know who I would be, because you and me, we are one of a kind…

Me and you, our love is true, not matter what the people say. They can deny our love exists all they want, but they’re going to want what we have. In the moment that ‘s sweet, when boy and girl meet, that’s when the love rises. And if you say that our love is wrong, you are a fool, for you will never know what you’re missing out on…

But when they tell us that we can’t be together, they don’t know that that they’re wrong, and they forgot what love truly is, and that love is meant to last for a lifetime…

And if I didn’t have you, I don’t know what I would do. I wouldn’t be able to live my life, nor would I have the strength to carry on. And if I didn’t have you, I don’t know who I would be, because you and me, we are one of a kind…

And if I don’t have you, I can’t be myself, and if you’re not with me, you’d be lonely too. You and only need each other….

And if I didn’t have you, I don’t know what I would do. I wouldn’t be able to live my life, nor would I have the strength to carry on. And if I didn’t have you, I don’t know who I would be, because you and me, we are one of a kind…

And if I didn’t have you, I don’t know what I would do. I wouldn’t be able to live my life, nor would I have the strength to carry on. And if I didn’t have you, I don’t know who I would be, because you and me, we are one of a kind…

Farewell to Middle Earth – from The Battle of the 5 Musicals (based on The Battle of the Five Armies) – FAWM Song

We have now reached the end of the story
there’s nothing else to be said
the adventure has come to an end
and it’s time to head back home

We have turned the final page
it’s time to put the book away,
and we know that tomorrow
is just another day…

So now the is time to say goodbye
we shall part from this world stronger than friends
never fear what happens thereafter
it’s time for the final adventure

So now we can say the end
for there’s still more stories to tell
the book is closing and with a heavy heart I must say
Farewell to Middle Earth

I will never forget
all the friends I’ve met along the way
and the memories of the friends I have lost
will never go away

But now as I turn the final bend
and my home is just ahead
my heart is slowly breaking
as I can never be who I once was…

So now the is time to say goodbye
we shall part from this world stronger than friends
never fear what happens thereafter
it’s time for the final adventure

So now we can say the end
for there’s still more stories to tell
the book is closing and with a heavy heart I must say
Farewell to Middle Earth

I know the story is over
but in a way, it still continues
because there’s still a part of the story
that has yet to be told

Now the is time to say goodbye
we shall part from this world stronger than friends
never fear what happens thereafter
it’s time for the final adventure

So now we can say the end
for there’s still more stories to tell
the book is closing and with a heavy heart I must say…
Farewell to Middle Earth!

Rising from Pride – FAWM Song

I am not your victim
I am not a survivor
I am not a hero
I am not strong

I am not special
I am ordinary
I am just like every other person you know

You say that you are the thing that you’re not supposed to be
You say it defines you, but you’re letting it destroy you
How can you be happy when you’re trapped in your own sins
When will you learn to let the thing go and become the person you were meant to be?

But as for me, I am more than what you want to say about me
I am not to be defined by the evils you want to put on me
I’m rising up and I’m going to take you down
I’m going to show you where you went wrong
I will show you a better way to live your life

You say you are that thing you’re not supposed to be
That thing is destroying your soul
You say you want it and its killing you
You have to let it go

You’re not strong
You’re not smart
You’re not brave
If you continue to live this way

You must let it go
You must repent
You must give up or else you will die

But you cannot let them become your tormentors
They will not want to be your victims
You must learn to give up now|
Because the thing that you want is only killing you…

The Only Person You Can Save is Yourself – FAWM Song

They say you have the power to save the world you’re in. They say that it’s OK to live a life of sin. But what what they don’t know is that you’re quickly going down a slippery slope, and once you find yourself stuck in the mud, you’ll have a hard time getting out…

And all the praying that you do isn’t going to help you now because it’s far too late for you to save the world, as the world’s going to crash and burn…

You know you’re not happy, you know you’re not free, your only setting yourself up for pain. You want to help them, but theyre so set in their ways, it’s so much easier to save a toy than it is to save your friends. You know you’re not happy, you know you’re not free, you know you can’t help everyone. Just put your heroics up on the shelf, because the only person you can save is yourself.

You say your life is great, but your life is only falling apart. You’ve lied so many times, it’s now impossible for anyone to help you now. What’s the point of being upset when it’s the help that you’ve rejected? You’re going down the path of destruction, not even the angels in Heaven can save you now.

And all the praying that you do isn’t going to help you now because it’s far too late for you to save the world, as the world’s going to crash and burn…

You know you’re not happy, you know you’re not free, your only setting yourself up for pain. You want to help them, but theyre so set in their ways, it’s so much easier to save a toy than it is to save your friends. You know you’re not happy, you know you’re not free, you know you can’t help everyone. Just put your heroics up on the shelf, because the only person you can save is yourself.

They didn’t want to help you, they only wanted you to help them and now the world’s falling apart. Sin is everywhere, and now the time has come for you to cut your losses and save yourself…

You know you’re not happy, you know you’re not free, your only setting yourself up for pain. You want to help them, but theyre so set in their ways, it’s so much easier to save a toy than it is to save your friends. You know you’re not happy, you know you’re not free, you know you can’t help everyone. Just put your heroics up on the shelf, because the only person you can save is yourself.

You know you’re not happy, you know you’re not free, your only setting yourself up for pain. You want to help them, but theyre so set in their ways, it’s so much easier to save a toy than it is to save your friends. You know you’re not happy, you know you’re not free, you know you can’t help everyone. Just put your heroics up on the shelf, because the only person you can save is yourself.

It’s Raining Fire (And We’re All Gonna Die) – from The Musical of Desolation (based on The Desolation of Smaug) – FAWM Song

I look out and see the mountain and I see the fires within. And I pray a prayer that the gods above would protect my brothers and the rest…

We are doomed to see this day as the heat of fire comes crashing down. What have we done to deserve this fate? Was it because we were too late to save our brothers, to save our friends, and now, I don’t know know what to say…

It’s raining fire, and we’re all gonna die, we can’t escape this time, no matter how hard we try. It’s raining fire, and we’re all gonna die, how can this be, I hope that you remember me…

We are all gonna die tonight, and at least we’ll all be together, we’ve been through so many dangers, and I’m sure we’ll be facing make more. But now I see that the dragon’s wrath is quickly floating over our heads…

It’s raining fire, and we’re all gonna die, we can’t escape this time, no matter how hard we try. It’s raining fire, and we’re all gonna die, how can this be, I hope that you remember me…

It’s all your fault, Gandalf, you should have known this was going to happen, and yet you did nothing to prevent it. But now I’m going to die all alone, and I have no one else to blame but you…

(brief instrumental solo)

And now comes the test of our time, do we live, or do we die? What else can I say, as I hope for a brand-new day, where dragon-fire is nothing more than a bad dream and I can see the sun once again…

It’s raining fire, and we’re all gonna die, we can’t escape this time, no matter how hard we try. It’s raining fire, and we’re all gonna die, how can this be, I hope that you remember me…
