Verse 1:
Had enough of the dark clouds hanging round
Gonna find some sun
Treat myself to some good times, gett’n out
Gonna have some fun

Only thing I can change is my mind
Let the rest fly away
Take a step in the right direction
Starting off a brand new day

Catch the wave and come with me
Wear a smile and soon you will be

Feel’n  those good vibes
Feel’n  those good vibes

Pull the strings of reality
To find a common thread
Gonna share this joy that I’ve found

Don’t ya know It’s up to you

"Carry with Me," 2019

It starts with the horizon
I can feel my heart beat
every time time I come here feels like a cool summer breeze

‘cause whenever we’re together I feel grateful to be
a part of something greater something greater than me

So do a dance if it makes you feel proud (let me see ya) and let me tell you that we’re destined to be
a shining star in this great world around us
we’re something special that I carry with me

Can’t tell you how I got here ‘cause it’s a place I always see when I look beyond the mirror I feel what’s living in me

‘cause we are one and there’s nothing nothing coming between
and the love we share will linger
like the eldest of trees

So do a dance if it makes you feel proud (let me see ya) and let me tell you that we’re destined to be
a shining star in this great world around us
we’re something special that I carry with me

So do a dance if it makes you feel proud (let me see ya) and let me tell you that we’re destined to be
a shining star in this great world around us
we’re something special that I carry with me

carry with me (x4)

There’s a strength we all share and a courage that leads us We’re even more than we’ve been Warriors

So do a dance if it makes you feel proud (let me see ya) and let me tell you that we’re destined to be
a shining star in this great world around us
we’re something special that I carry with me

So do a dance if it makes you feel proud (let me see ya) and let me tell you that we’re destined to be
a shining star in this great world around us
we’re something special that I carry with me

carry with me (x4)

"Our Song," 2018

Verse 1:

I can hear a distant echo
Rising up across the plain
There’s a pulse that dwells
Down in these hills
That cannot be contained

I can feel the whisper stirring
It’s calling out my name
My soul restored
From those before
Passing on the flame

Chorus:

Let the love, be our song
Let the love, be our song
Let the love, be our song
We will carry on
This is our song

Verse 2:

There’s a peace that’s hanging on me
It’s my time to take a stand
Like wildfire it finds its way
To every heart across this land

Now this is our higher calling
Time to rise among the crowd
We’ll send this word
Across the earth
Oh we will sing it out

Name: "Our Song"

"Our People," 2014
Verse 1:
It was written in the pages
And spoken throughout time
Of the one’s who had the vision
To do what was right

Holding on to traditions
In spite of changing times

Verse 2:
Stepping out into the unknown
Unsure of what’s in store
Trusting the creator
To open the door

Through trials and tribulations
Our courage still remains

Chorus 1:
Our People
Had the strength to carry on
Our People
It’s here we belong
With our faith in hand
We proudly stand
It’s who we are

Verse 3:
In the face of opposition
No matter what the cost
With everything they won
And everything they lost

Even today
We honor their sacrifice

Bridge:
When the storms were all around them
With fear in their eyes
Their hearts were pounding loudly
The sounds of battle cries

With hope on the horizon
And the will to survive
They made the call to risk it all
For god was on their side

Chorus 2:
Our People
Had the strength to carry on
Our People
It’s here we belong
With our faith in hand
We proudly stand
It’s who we are

Our People
Laid the path for us to take
Our People
Forged the life we have today
With our faith in hand
We proudly stand
It’s who we are

"Coming Home," 2013
Verse 1:
Busy streets, Flashing lights
Sea of people passing by
Can’t believe how far I’ve come

The way things used to be
Those distant memories
Make it hard to call this place my home

PreChorus 1:
But I know someday soon
I’ll be back once again

Chorus 1:
That endless countryside
Under Okchamali skies
Cause that’s the place I know that I belong

Oh to feel that summer wind
It takes me back again
To open fields where I used to run

And I know
I’m coming home

Verse 2:
Looking down from above
On that sacred land I love
With open arms waiting there for me

See the smile upon her face
Feel the warmth of sweet embrace
That’s the pride that keeps me holding on

PreChorus:
And I knew someday soon
I’d be home once again

Chorus 2:
That endless countryside
Under Okchamali skies
Cause that’s the place I know that I belong

Oh to feel that summer wind
It takes me back again
To open fields where I used to run

And I know
I’m coming home

Bridge (Instrumental Break)

Chorus 3:
That endless countryside
Under Okchamali skies
Cause that’s the place I know that I belong

Oh to feel that summer wind
It takes me back again
To open fields where I used to run

Chorus 4:
That endless countryside
Under Okchamali skies
Cause that’s the place I  know that I belong

Oh to feel that summer wind
It takes me back again
To open fields where I used to run

And I know
I’m coming home

Outro:
So proud to call this place my home

From those that walked before us
Many tears were shed
In spite of all their trials
They forged our nation’s thread

The Spirit of our People
Has stood the test of time

While continuing our climb

Cause They’re the Spirit of a Nation
Strong, Proud, and Free
From where we came to where we are
It’s passed to you and me

Stand up and be counted
Lift you head, look to the sky
Let the spirit guide your actions
United we will thrive

Our path is laid before us
Uncertainty it may bring
With faith, love, and courage
We will let this spirit ring

Chorus 2:
We’re the Spirit of a Nation
Strong, Proud, and Free
From where we came to where we are
It’s passed to you and me

The Spirit of a Nation
A Collective Generation
From where we came to where are
It’s the Spirit of a Nation

We’re the Spirit of a Nation
Strong, Proud, and Free
From where we came to where we are
It’s passed to you and me
