You’ll lock it in your pocket after its told, the vow to never tell is where your heart is sold. The fact still stands that you will take it to the grave, you’ll do anything to keep the secret safe. Whisper then lock it in your pocket, whisper then lock it in your pocket. The secret holds your friendship and you keep the treasure alive. Before you tell the secret you would rather die. The secret holds your heart on stilts, you will keep the secret on your own will. Whisper then lock it in your pocket, whisper then lock it in your pocket.
He had a dream, yes he did. That races would be equal, nothing left said. He had a dream called civil rights. Lets unite, lets not fight. Martin had a dream one day. Martin had much to say. We cheered him on. For Martin was not wrong. He though Blacks and Whites could get along. He may have been killed but his dream lived on. Now here we are, living his dream. Us people are no longer ripped by the seam. Nor separated by different colors.
Your born you live you die. You smile you walk you talk and cry. But within those years you live, you must think and do positive. Yolo, Yolo, you only live once. Yolo, Yolo, you have to take the chance. Yolo, Yolo, you only live once. Yolo, Yolo, you only live once. Yolo, Yolo, you have to take the chance. Do it while you can, have fun while it lasts. Live, love, forget because the past is in the past. Yolo, Yolo, you only live once. Yolo, Yolo, you have to take the chance. Yolo, Yolo, you only live once. Yolo, Yolo, you have to take the chance.
There is a place, where you could go. Where you never, never say no. Where you have fun, when happiness has no end. Where you live forever with family, and your friends. You laugh and play until the end of the day, its the place where you want to stay. Neverland, Neverland, is where you ought to be. Neverland, Neverland, for you and me. Neverland, Neverland, is where you ought to be. Neverland, Neverland, for you and me. Take me to a place of cotton candy clouds, a place of forever, a place of no doubt. Sprinkle me with pixie dust so that we can fly, in Neverland you will never want to cry. Neverland, Neverland, is where you ought to be, Neverland, Neverland, for you and me. Neverland, Neverland, is where you ought to be, Neverland, Neverland, for you and me.

True friends know all the tears you’ve wept. True friends know all the secrets that you’ve kept. True friends know they never bow out. True friends never have their doubts. True friends know when they should stay. True friends know when they should walk away. True friends know all the tears you’ve wept. True friends know all the secrets that you’ve kept. True friends know how to end a fight. They know to just say that you were right. True friends know when to tell the truth. True friends don’t want to loose you. Do you have a friend like that? Do you have a friend like that?
Somewhere above the rainbow they said they swear and they do, There is a land that you dream of, full of hope and love too. Somewhere above the color red there is a bed of creativity. Somewhere above the color blue, there is a land of imagination where you could go too. Somewhere above the rainbow they said they swear and they do, There is a land that you dream of, full of hope and love too. Somewhere above the color green, there is a dream that’s keen, to make you remember. Somewhere above the color pink there is a link to a place called faithful. Somewhere above the rainbow they said they swear and they do, There is a land that you dream of, full of hope and love too.
Imagine the earth if everyone got along, No mean comments no right or wrong. Imagine the people if we were pure heart, If we stood together, Never to break apart. Imagine the land if we did not throw trash on the streets, To spend the days lying in the heat. Imagine the Earth, What it could be, If all of us people took the time to believe. The world around has gone to waste because we have taste in decisions of haste. Imagine what you, Yes you can do. Believe in yourself, Always stay true.
In the future you see robots in the street, Electronic drums playing sounds like….beep beep beep. You imagine electronics at their best, instead of writing on paper we type the answers to our tests. But in the future is a chance for you, to do something you never thought you could do. Maybe in the future you stops cigarettes, maybe you will find something that brings the best. Maybe you will be the first lady to lead, maybe you will stop the “World Hunger” need. Maybe you invent a medicine that cures the ill, Maybe you stop the action called kill. Sure there may be robots or electric tater tots but the future puts you on the hotspot to create.
On the street you might see someone going through your blue bin and carrying a shopping cart filled with bottles. You might get scared and go inside or you tell them to go away. These people are called homeless and that title is pretty much self explanatory. Homeless people are people who don’t have money, food, shelter, or warm clothes. You might be thinking “They were lazy so now they are living on the streets” sometimes that is what happens but most of the time it isn’t. Sometimes they were not born into a family that were able to pay the bills with the flick of their wrist and now they grew to have no money. Or maybe they have a disease and they cant function correctly and pick up a job so now they cant pay their bills. Sometimes what is happening to this person never runs through your mind at first sight. So when you see one of these people give them a bottle of water or food. Maybe offer them the old coat in he back of your closet. If you have food on the table give them some. Most people don’t know that more than 500,000 people in the US are homeless! They are still people… Just like you and me. On Youtube I watched a social experiment about a homeless man who shares his small amount of food even though he is starving! check out my link above this post!
