Michael Jackson – Man In The Mirror

Yes, it starts with “The Man in the Mirror” to “Heal the World”, and it doesn’t matter if you’re “Black or White” because “We are the World”.

Michael Jackson is an inspiration for all time.

Man In The Mirror lyrics
Songwriters: Ballard, Glen; Garrett, Siedah;

Ooh ooh ooh aah
Gotta make a change
For once in my life
It’s gonna feel real good
Gonna make a difference
Gonna make it right

As I turned up the collar on
A favorite winter coat
This wind is blowin’ my mind
I see the kids in the street
With not enough to eat
Who am I to be blind
Pretending not to see their needs

A summer’s disregard
A broken bottle top
And a one man’s soul
They follow each other
On the wind ya’ know
‘Cause they got nowhere to go
That’s why I want you to know

I’m starting with the man in the mirror
I’m asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make a change, yey
Na na na, na na na, na na na na oh ho

I’ve been a victim of
A selfish kinda love
It’s time that I realize
There are some with no home
Not a nickel to loan
Could it be really pretending that they’re not alone

A willow deeply scarred
Somebody’s broken heart
And a washed out dream
(Washed out dream)
They follow the pattern of the wind ya’ see
‘Cause they got no place to be
That’s why I’m starting with me

I’m starting with the man in the mirror
I’m asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make a change

I’m starting with the man in the mirror
I’m asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make that change

I’m starting with the man in the mirror
(Man in the mirror, oh yeah)
I’m asking him to change his ways, yeah
(Change)
No message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make the change
You gotta get it right, while you got the time
‘Cause when you close your heart
(You can’t close your, your mind)
Then you close your mind

(That man, that man, that man)
(That man, that man, that man)
(With the man in the mirror, oh yeah)
(That man you know, that man you know)
(That man you know, that man you know)
I’m asking him to change his ways
(Change)
No message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself then make that change

(Na na na, na na na, na na na na)
Ooh
Oh yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
(Na na na, na na na, na na na na)

Oh no
Oh no, I’m gonna make a change
It’s gonna feel real good
Sure mon
(Change)
Just lift yourself
You know, you got to stop it yourself
(Yeah)
Oh
Make that change
(I gotta make that change today, oh)
(Man in the mirror)
You got to, you got to not let yourself, brother oh
Yeah
You know that
(Make that change)
(I gotta make that make me then make)
You got, you got to move
Sure mon, sure mon
You got to
(Stand up, stand up, stand up)
Make that change
Stand up and lift yourself, now
(Man in the mirror)
Make that change
(Gonna make that change, sure mon)
(Man in the mirror)
You know it, you know it, you know it, you know
(Change)
Make that change

Tracy Chapman – New Beginning (with lyrics)

  • New Beginning
    Tracy Chapman
  • The whole world’s broke and it ain’t worth fixing
  • It’s time to start all over, make a new beginning
  • There’s too much pain, too much suffering
  • Let’s resolve to start all over make a new beginning
  • Now don’t get me wrong I love life and living
  • But when you wake up and look around at everything that’s going down
  • All wrong
  • You see we need to change it now, this world with too few happy endings
  • We can resolve to start all over make a new beginning
  • Start all over
  • Start all over
  • Start all over
  • Start all over
  • The world is broken into fragments and pieces
  • That once were joined together in a unified whole
  • But now too many stand alone There’s too much separation
  • We can resolve to come together in the new beginning
  • Start all over
  • Start all over
  • Start all over
  • Start all over
  • We can break the cycle – We can break the chain
  • We can start all over – In the new beginning
  • We can learn, we can teach
  • We can share the myths the dream the prayer
  • The notion that we can do better
  • Change our lives and paths
  • Create a new world
  • And Start all over
  • Start all over
  • Start all over
  • Start all over
  • The whole world’s broke and it ain’t worth fixing
  • It’s time to start all over, make a new beginning
  • There’s too much fighting, too little understanding
  • It’s time to stop and start all over
  • Make a new beginning
  • Start all over
  • Start all over
  • Start all over
  • Start all over
  • We need to make new symbols
  • Make new signs
  • Make a new language
  • With these we’ll define the world
  • And start all over
  • Start all over
  • Start all over
  • Start all over …
  • The whole world’s broke and it ain’t worth fixing
  • It’s time to start all over, make a new beginning
  • There’s too much fighting, too little understanding
  • It’s time to stop and start all over
  • Make a new beginning
  • Start all over
  • Start all over
  • Start all over
  • Start all over
  • We need to make new symbols
  • Make new signs
  • Make a new language
  • With these we’ll define the world
  • And start all over
  • Start all over
  • Start all over
  • Start all over …

 

 

Louis Armstrong – What A Wonderful World

This is a great reminder that we can see the wonders of this world we live in. Louis Armstrong is testimony of someone whose childlike wonder is never lost. I like the simple and profound lyrics.

I think the world is wonderful also because we are the world, and we are wonderful in our true essence.

“I am the Earth. I am Sacred. I am the Beauty of every Flower and the Majesty of every Mountain. I am the River of Truth that Flows through the Soul. I am the Ocean of Awareness that dwells in the Mind. I am the Sea of Transformation that washes over the Body. I am You and You are Me. I am the Earth.”

Unknown

Yes, we are the river of truth, the ocean of awareness and the sea of transformation in our soul, mind and body.

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
They’re really saying I love you.

I hear babies crying, I watch them grow
They’ll learn much more than I’ll never know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world.

Love makes the world go round – Powerpuff Girls (Subbed in English and Spanish)

Video commentary:

This is a video of Powerpuff Girls, you can see lyrics in English and Spanish!

Open your eyes and take in everything that you see
Look at all the colors like , yellow, blue, & green
We can take an airplane and fly across the globe
Look down upon the colors, everyone come on, let’s go
Because

Love, love, love, la la love
La la love makes the world go ’round
Love, love, love, la la love
La la love makes the world go ’round

Open your ears and listen what the world has to say
Hear the birds & bells and you will have a brighter day
Everyone has a special song deep inside their heart
If you want, you could sing with us, it’s the perfect place to start

Love, love, love, la la love
La la love makes the world go ’round
You can’t hurt me with the things that you do
I’ll pick up dandelions and I’ll give them to you
Puppy dogs, kitty cats swimming through love

Love, love, love, la la love
La la love makes the world go ’round
Love, love, love, la la love
La la love makes the world go ’round

 

 

Song of Ascension

“You are the salt of the earth

You are the light of the world

Let your light so shine before men

that they may see your good works in the world.”

~ Christ Jesus, Sermon on the Mountain

“Enlightenment is not imagining figures of light, but making the darkness conscious.” – Carl Jung

“Each soul is a note of light

in the music of the spheres

Together we weave the melody of creation

If we are to co-create a new earth

We must learn to sing with the harmony of the stars.

“Our love is like the misty rain that falls softly, but floods the river.” – African Proverb

Our song of light can flood the world like a rising tide

Releasing old paradigms of old and duality

And allowing ourselves to ascend to the higher vibrational levels

Of unconditional love and oneness with all that is
