Songs of the week - Autumn 2

Firework

 

Do you ever feel like a plastic bag,
Drifting through the wind, wanting to start again?
Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin,
Like a house of cards, one blow from caving in?
Do you ever feel already buried deep?
Six feet under screams, but no-one seems to hear a thing.
Do you know that there’s still a chance for you?
‘Cause there’s a spark in you.

 

You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine,
Just own the night like the Fourth of July.

 

‘Cause baby, you’re a firework.
Come on, show ‘em what you’re worth.
Make ‘em go, ‘Aah, aah, aah,’
As you shoot across the sky – y – y.

 

Baby, you’re a firework,
Come on, let your colours burst.
Make ‘em go, ‘Aah, aah, aah,’
You’re gonna leave them all in awe, awe, awe.

 

You don’t have to feel like a wasted space.
You’re original, cannot be replaced.
If you only knew what the future holds.
After a hurricane comes a rainbow.
Maybe a reason why all the doors were closed,
So you could open one that leads you to the perfect road.
Like a lightning bolt, your heart will glow,
And when it’s time you’ll know.

 

You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine,
Just own the night like the Fourth of July.

 

‘Cause baby, you’re a firework.
Come on, show ‘em what you’re worth.
Make ‘em go, ‘Aah, aah, aah,’
As you shoot across the sky – y – y.

 

Baby, you’re a firework,
Come on, let your colours burst.
Make ‘em go, ‘Aah, aah, aah,’
You’re gonna leave them all in awe, awe, awe.

 

Boom, boom, boom,
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon.
It’s always been inside of you, you, you.
And now it’s time to let it through.

 

‘Cause baby, you’re a firework.
Come on, show ‘em what you’re worth.
Make ‘em go, ‘Aah, aah, aah,’
As you shoot across the sky – y – y.

 

Baby, you’re a firework,
Come on, let your colours burst.
Make ‘em go, ‘Aah, aah, aah,’
You’re gonna leave them all in awe, awe, awe.

 

(Part 2) Boom, boom, boom,
(All) Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon.
Boom, boom, boom,
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon.

The Night of a Thousand Lights

Let’s celebrate Diwali Night,
The night of a thousand lights.
Let’s celebrate Diwali night,

The night of a thousand lights.

 

Chasing away the demons of fear,
Welcome the world to a brand new year.

 

Let’s celebrate Diwali Night,
The night of a thousand lights.
Let’s celebrate Diwali night,

The night of a thousand lights.

 

Thanking the gods for learning and wealth,
Hoping the lights bring us peace love and health.

 

Let’s celebrate Diwali Night,
The night of a thousand lights.
Let’s celebrate Diwali night,

The night of a thousand lights.

Raise my voice

 

Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh. (x 2)

 

Got something to say, got a difference to make, 
A part I can play and a role I can take, 
I believe in myself, express how I feel,
I like who I am and I’m keepin’ it real.

 

Raise my voice, make a noise,
’Cos we’re all havin’ fun with it. (Fun with it.)
Can’t you see, this is me
And it’s OK to go for it. (Go for it.)

 

Raise my voice, make a noise,
’Cos we’re all havin’ fun with it. (Fun with it.)
Can’t you see, this is me
And it’s OK to go for it.
Makes me wanna sing!

 

Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh. (x2)

 

I want to be strong, live long and be safe.
My generation has something to say,
So much to learn, enjoy and achieve.
I reach for my goal to be all I can be.

 

Raise my voice, make a noise,
’Cos we’re all havin’ fun with it. (Fun with it.)
Can’t you see, this is me
And it’s OK to go for it. (Go for it.)

 

Raise my voice, make a noise,
’Cos we’re all havin’ fun with it. (Fun with it.)
Can’t you see, this is me
And it’s OK to go for it.
Makes me wanna sing!

 

Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh. (x 2)

 

(Chanted) BULLYING? NO!
WORK TOGETHER? YES! 
HIDE MYSELF? NO!
BE ME? YEAH!

 

Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh. (x 2)

 

Strong side by side, we lift those who fall, 
Stand by our friends and we hear when they call.
Let’s all make a change, all play our part,
It takes you and me, and here’s where it starts:

 

Raise my voice, make a noise,
’Cos we’re all havin’ fun with it. (Fun with it.)
Can’t you see, this is me
And it’s OK to go for it. (Go for it.)

 

Raise my voice, make a noise,
’Cos we’re all havin’ fun with it. (Fun with it.)
Can’t you see, this is me
And it’s OK to go for it.
Makes me wanna sing!

 

Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh. (x 4)
