Lyrics K.Pierce/ C Sykes
Genre: Pop

This song is about finding your inner beauty and showing it off for the world to see.


(Piano Intro)

Verse 1
Don't be afraid
To jump in the game
You gotta show
Your Superstar
Shine your glitter, like gold
You gotta unfold
All the beautiful
It's who you are.
Follow your heart song
There's always blue sky
...... let the mystery turn you on.
Take the next step
Don't settle for less
be Athena, find your warrior
So go ahead..... and tempt ......the fates....
Go on and shout out...

Chorus
Set off the Fireworks
Light up the sky
Light it up
From the inside
Like a kaleidoscope
Always spinnin around
A million colours come alive
Cause this story's yours
Why don't you go for broke
................n' go for breathless..........

Verse 2

So you're a hot mess,
Welcome to the rest of us
We're all just diamonds
With a broken edge.
Don't put on a show
It's not who you know
Let the sparks fly
From that song in your soul.
Set it on fire, ignite all the stars
Don't need to second-guess who you are
Break all the rules
Show the real you
Cause you're beautiful the way you are
So go ahead..... and tempt ......the fates....
Go on and shout out.....

Chorus
Set off the Fireworks
Light up the sky
Light it up from the inside
Like a kaleidoscope
Always spinnin around
A million colours come alive
Cause this story's yours
Why don't you go for broke
n' go for breathless.......

Middle 8
Set off the fireworks
and light up the night
Set off the fireworks
and light up....... light up......
Set off the fireworks
and light up the night
Set off the fireworks
and light up....... LIGHT UP...............
Underlying Section:
I know who I am
Venus calls out my name
the serpent's shield
(always) guarding my flame

Chorus
Set off the Fireworks
Light up the sky
Light it up from the inside
Like a kaleidoscope
Always spinnin around
A million colours come alive
Cause this story's yours
Why don't you go for broke
...............n' go for breathless.......

Ending
Set off the fireworks
and light up the night
Set off the fireworks
and light up....... light up......
Set off the fireworks
and light up the night
Set off the fireworks
and light up....... LIGHT UP...............

If This Is War
© 2014 Writer and Performer Chrissy Sykes

Verse
We've been here before
And I'm not doing this
Not doing this
Ain't life a bitch

Never want to talk
Never want to build a bridge
Wont live like this

That's just the way it is
Stand behind the door

And you shout out at me
You and me
, My enemy
Heard it all before And we just disagree
Time for battle…………..


Chorus
If this is war
We are gonna fight it out
If this is war
There's nowhere to run to
Like a hurricane

I am gonna blow you out If this is war
I'm standing up to you
Woaahh …………

Verse What a way to live
You've been no fantasy
Don't disagree
You're hurting me

Never Felt so strong
Never felt control like this
It's Time to switch
I live at fever pitch
Stand behind the door

And you shout out at me
Agree to disagree

My enemy
Heard it all before
Find another fool like me
Time for battle

Chorus
If this is war
We are gonna fight it out
If this is war
There's nowhere to run to
Like a hurricane

I am gonna blow you out If this is war
I'm standing up to you
Woaahh …………

Middle 8 Here you are
And Here I am
I'm Torn Apart
And Blown Away
Battle Starts
I'm standing strong
Not breaking down
No not today

Verse 1:
Sitting in a crowded coffee bar
With a cold empty cup in my hand
I avoid meeting your eyes
As you try to make me understand
You say its not me to blame
But who else can it be
I try to put my brave face on
Cause I am man you see
You know you're making it harder
Won't leave me alone
Chorus:
And we'll go our separate ways
Cause you think it's better for you
And we'll go our separate ways
And there's nothing I can do
And I'm trying not to show
But you already know
That if we go our separate ways it will end up
breaking me.
Verse 2
I look around at my life passing by
And no one cares if I break
I'm just a nobody at all
Just another guy in a state
You say that your the one to blame
All I see in front of me
Is the person that I love -
And I'm your man you see
You know your making this harder
Won't leave me alone
Chorus:
And we'll go our separate ways
Cause you think it's better for you
And we'll go our separate ways
You say there's nothing I can do
And I'm trying not to show
But you already know
that if we go our separate ways it will end up
breaking me.
Breaking me
Middle 8
Where the weak fall
Where the sun drowns
And the sky is turning black
And the night falls
And the earth breaks
And there's no turning back
When a heart breaks
And the clouds call
I'll be looking back you see
Chorus:
And we'll go our separate ways
Cause you think it's better for you
And we'll go our separate ways
You say there's nothing I can do
And I'm trying not to show
But you already know
that if we go our separate ways it will end up
Breaking me
Breaking me.

SuitcaseCase packed standing by the door
Got to move out to New Boston
Got a job I can't ignore
No easy way to go

Diamonds
© 2013 Nick Askew BMI
Sykes and Sykes Publishing


Diamond hearts will fail
Whist lesser ones they prevail
Get by on little money
I can't hold a job for long
But I keep on keep on trying
Till the flesh is off my bones, my bones

Diamond's say it all
Whilst my heart prepare to fall
Your soul can barely hear me,
Screaming out in pain for more
Time to have you in my arms
It is what I'm longing for

And you make me feel like
One more kiss would be way too much
One more minute in my arms would be too much
My heart gets weak when I'm longing for your touch
Maybe diamonds would be strong enough to keep you in my arms tonight

Diamonds will see us trough
And I'm hopelessly fighting for you
I keep you through the hard times and the nights you feel alone
But I need a heart that's strong enough
Strong enough to break my own
And you make me feel like

One more kiss would be way too much
One more minute in my arms would be too much
My heart gets weak when I'm longing for your touch
Maybe diamonds would be strong enough to keep you in my arms tonight

Verse
Don’t Say a Word
Its made the news all over town
You and that girl
Been messing around
Grapevine lies won't sacrifice
The love that I have for you

Chorus
And I'm sorry - I'm so sorry
If my love (wasn't) enough
I'm standing here,
and I wont give up
Put your arms around me.......
Don't say a word.

Verse
Don't say a word
(we'll go back) to where we started
where I'm all that you need
So listen (to) your heart
Cause you won't be deceived
We're worth fighting for
My love be careful what you do

Chorus
And I'm sorry - I'm so sorry
If my heart was not enough for you
I'm standing here,
and I wont give up
Put your love around me
Don’t say a word.
I won't let her win this race we're in
Where vows and sin chase us again

Chorus
Cause I'm sorry - I'm so sorry
If you feel ( I wasn't) enough
But were standing here,
Please don't give up
Put your arms around me
And don’t say a word.

Embrace

© Nick Askew BMI
Sykes and Sykes Publishing

Verse
Open my eyes one by one
Getting kissed by morning sun
Turn over, get a kiss from you
Straighten my tie put on my shoes
You got coffee at the ready
As the minute hand goes one two three
Watching the world spin a thousand ways
oh I wish that I had time to say

Chorus
Ohh…..
that I will be the one one
To bring the morning sun
My love makes me promise this
And I would marry you
Again a time or two
My love makes me promise there's
Much to you

Verse
Next thing I know it's turning five
The sky has fell i'm taking flight
See the crimson sky turn into night
I'm alive,
You're standing right there in the doorway
Saying all I need is you're embrace
and it feels like eternity
before I can say

Chorus
Ohh…..
That I will be the one one
To bring the morning sun
My love makes me promise there's
And I would marry you
Again a time or two
My love makes me promise there's
And I would be the one to bring the morning sun
My love makes me promise there's
And I would marry you
Again a time or two
My love makes me promise there's
Much more, there's…..
Much to you
