Track Name: The Legend of My Life
The Legend of My Life
Words and Lyrics by Samantha Schultz
© 2010 Samantha Schultz SOCAN

There once was a girl
Who would get wrapped up in any romantic world
She fell in love for the first time
But let me tell you ‘bout this guy
He was all about the “me, myself and I”

After him she began a quest for a man that was just right
And all those years she swam through the tears that ran from her tired eyes
And she was black blue from all that she’d been through and was ready to give up the fight
But then she opened a door on a fateful night

And I’ve been looking in all the wrong places for the right thing
And I did it all wrong with how I went along with everything
I’m gonna take the pain from back in the day and let it lie
‘Cause you make me feel like I’m gonna be alright
Baby, you’re the legend of my life

Now he was only a friend
But we all know how stories like this end
She fell in love, but in good time
And let me tell you ‘bout this guy
He was all about treating each other right

And for him she began a love for this man that was just right
And all those years she spent with broken men seemed worth the fight
And you could hear her say how she loved the way that he loved her with all of his might
And she would thank her lucky stars for him each night

CHORUS

Yeah you’ve slayed my evil dragons and you’ve freed me from this tower
Yeah I have no doubt that you’ve gone all out and you hold me with this power
This flower of love
It’s the power of love

CHORUS

There once was a girl who was wrapped up in a lovely little world
Track Name: Sunshine
SUNSHINE
Words and Lyrics by Samantha Schultz
© 2011 Samantha Schultz SOCAN

You took my blue and mixed it up with red
And it became this purple hue of affection
What you do gets stuck so easy in my head
It took two (me and you) to find perfection

I was stepping on stones but kept slipping into water
Fighting through flames, but it got hotter and hotter
And the wind blew so hard as I walked that high wire
Until you made me dizzy when you spun me right ‘round and said:

Will you be my sunshine?
You’re the color of love that I love
Would you be willing to be mine?
Sunshine, sunshine
Oh Miss Beautiful, right beside you’s where I wanna be all the time
I feel like I’m meant to fly in the light of your sunshine
Sunshine

I was falling apart – I’d almost lost my head
But your gentle hands showed me the right direction
You changed up my scene and showed me real love instead
Between you and I, you painted a love connection
You said…

CHORUS

And oh I’ve been pounded by pain, and I’ve been taunted by stars
Just wishing to be saved by someone who had a heart
That would fit within mine
Who brought me…sunshine

And I’ll be your sunshine
You’re the color of love that I love
And I’m so happy that you’re mine
Sunshine, sunshine
Oh this is beautiful, right beside you’s where I’m gonna be all the time
I know that I’m meant to fly in the light of your sunshine
Sunshine
Track Name: Light of My Life
LIGHT OF MY LIFE
© 2008 Samantha Schultz

(Capo 3rd fret)

VERSE 1:
You kiss my cheek and you hold my hand But I can’t speak; I can hardly stand
Too great for words
Free are the birds flying in my heart
We walk along; we sing our songs
Laughing in each others’ arms

CHORUS:
The world it stops and time is locked
And all I can feel is you
And we are floating in this Boat of Love
Of love, of love
And you are my light
And you are the light of my life

VERSE 2:

Your loving light shines with all its grace
And all can tell that we’re in a better place
You make me smile when you say why
You love me through and through
And it’s safe to say there’s not a day
Where I don’t think of you

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
I think we deserve people who really love us, yeah
Who really love us
Who really love us

VERSE 3:
I fall asleep and feel at ease
Dreaming of your face

CHORUS

And you are the light of my life
Track Name: The Sun
The Sun
Words and Lyrics by Samantha Schultz
© 2009 Samantha Schultz SOCAN

Car sitting stud
Walk me over the waters of this distance
‘Cause my heart’s a-flood
Washing over my shoulders
Drowned in an instant
Instant

So lend me your cheek
And I’ll give you a kiss
And all I want in return for this
Is your love
Can I borrow your hand?
You can for sure hold mine
Time’s on our side
It’s always the right time for love
And the sun never sets on us

Million-watt smiler
Overloading my circuits and my wires
‘Cause you flipped a switch
I exploded with love
And happy fires
Fire

So lend me your cheek
And I’ll give you a kiss
And all I want in return for this
Is your love
Can I borrow your hand?
You can for sure hold mine
Time’s on our side
It’s always the right time for love
And the sun never sets on us
Track Name: You Are You!
You Are You!
Words and Lyrics by Samantha Schultz
© 2009 Samantha Schultz SOCAN

Hey there lady, going crazy
What’s been stressing you?
School and boys, life and noise
How will you pull through?
You better bring it down before you get turned around

Hey young man, so what’s your plan?
Just trying to find your way
Girls and cars, good school marks
Sometimes those off days
We all have them too; don’t let ‘em get to you

You gotta have a little faith
You gotta use all of your strength
When you’re feeling broken and blue
You are beautiful and bright
Show the world how you can shine
You should stand tall and proud
‘Cause you are you!

Are you sad or sometimes mad
At what life throws your way?
In your heart, try to find the spark
That’ll get you through the day
We all have a choice; listen to your inner voice

CHORUS

Don’t be in such a hurry to make yourself worried
Now is the time to be carefree
Live, laugh and love, what are your dreams made of?
Come on baby, you can tell me

CHORUS
Track Name: You Hold My Heart No. 2
You Hold My Heart No.2
Words and Music by Samantha Schultz
© 2010 Samantha Schultz SOCAN

You live amongst the ocean surf
And I live in homes around the earth
But I long to pound the cobblestone with you
I’m like a sister to the clouds
‘Cause every night, they flood the ground
They cry with me, so I won’t feel alone, it’s true
I sing words from my heart that are for you

But the tides go in and out
And the thunder screams and shouts
But you still hold my heart in your hands
Well the mountains turn to sand
And the rain soaks through these lands
But upon my own two feet I must stand, alone
But you still hold my heart in your hands
But you still hold my heart in your hands

I put on both my boots and walk
And listen to the raindrops talk
About how they have never seen this smile before
Cuz I’m thinking ‘bout your tight embrace
And the comfort of your smiling face
I’m counting the days ‘til I walk through your door
I think there are twenty, forty…maybe a million more

CHORUS

Yes I might rest uneasy while you’re gone
Yes, this is a test, but I know I am strong
But the days are so long

CHORUS
Track Name: Robert
Robert
Words and Music by Samantha Schultz
© 2010 Samantha Schultz SOCAN

Robert, you’re no ordinary man
But you have scraped and bruised your two hands
Too many times
Robert, they say you’re made out of steel
But these dark days are turning out to be quite real
This extraordinary man who talks as fast as he can

Robert, you’re crossing four into five
On the concrete walls that are killing you
But you stay alive
Robert, you plead guilty for the millionth time
For the millionth time
For the millionth time

Why can’t you just see the light?
Why can’t you just steal the light?
Steal it like you steal my heart
Steal it to blow these things apart
You must have some sort of clue
Take my light and light your pipe
Burn it bright to guide
The freezing man within you

Robert, you’re walking on blood red floors
Please realize that when you are good, you get much more
Robert tends to cry but doesn’t know what for
Such a conflicted man who doesn’t like to follow plans

CHORUS

Guide your way back to the stars
And no matter what you lack, you’re still my star
I would erase all the scars if I could, it’s true
But would you be the man who I knew?

CHORUS
Track Name: On The Sidelines
On The Sidelines
Words and Lyrics by Samantha Schultz
© 2011 Samantha Schultz SOCAN

I give and you take but there’s no
Thanks for nothing, baby, it would work
Anyway I’m kind of crazy
But that’s just what I say to make it
Go away sadness; I can’t deal
With you, I’m so happy, but at the same
Time just tends to kill me
‘Cause all I do is think of you

But you take it from me
You take it from everyone
What you want, what you need to get by
‘Cause you don’t care
You don’t care about anyone
I can’t believe how many times I’ve tried
Baby, you’re gonna crash and burn
When you see that you’re not the center of the world
So I’m gonna step aside
‘Cause I’m not meant to wait here on the sidelines

I try to walk away but you pull me
Back when times were simple, there were
Heart attacks are what you give me
What can I do?
‘Cause all I want is you

CHORUS

And I know that you know that I’m not invisible
And I know that you know that loving you makes me miserable
Yet you take and you take and you take
And I break and I break
And I hate and I hate how I just can’t get over you
I just can’t get over you

CHORUS

But I’m here on the sidelines
Track Name: Save Me
Save Me
Words and Lyrics by Samantha Schultz
© 2010 Samantha Schultz SOCAN

Am I second rate to what you wanna have?
But baby, you’re taken
So you make do with what you can
Now I lie awake in this sickly state
And I can’t breathe
I’m drowning at your own hands
But you don’t even see

And baby, you don’t who I think you are
When it comes to the dead, dark night
You’re my star
And baby, we’ve walked too far to let this be
So just hold me, baby, just hold me
‘Cause I thought I was your lady
And I thought you were the one who’d save me

She grabs you by the eyes in the humid sea breeze
So I stare into the sun
While my heart burns with this disease
I’m wishing I was blind from time to time
Baby, so I could breathe
I’m drowning at your own hands
But you don’t even see

CHORUS

I come with some demons
That will time to time, say hello
But I’ve loved you dearly
So tell me when and why you decided to let go
But baby, she ain’t me
No baby, she ain’t me

Now I’m not gonna be second rate
To what you wanna have
‘Cause baby, you’re taken
And I’m given you all I can

CHORUS
Track Name: In The Autumn Leave Days AKA The Boston Song
In The Autumn Leave Days
©Music & Lyrics: Samantha Schultz
May 9, 2010

(Capo 3rd fret)

I saw your plane take off into the morning sky
I looked at my sneakers and started to cry
As the people filed in I had to cover my eyes
But all I could see was our sad goodbye

CHORUS:
Well the sun rises early in Boston
Its rays spill across the floor
You are flying back in time to your home now
I wanna rewind so we can have more
More time together here in Boston
But it’s time to buckle up and part ways
It’ll be kinda tough, but baby soon enough,
I’ll be with you in the autumn leave days

So I sit by myself on these black chairs alone
Knowing ‘cause of you my heart has grown
I’ll remember how brightly the sun had shone
But just how coldly the wind had blown

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
Think of me when the ocean waves crash down
Think of me when the summer sun sets down to the ground
And soon enough, I’ll be eastern bound
Where we can greet the new morning
Together, safe and sound

I saw your plane take off into the morning sky
Goodbye…

CHORUS
Track Name: Ink To Paper
Ink to Paper
©Music and Lyrics by Samantha Schultz

(CAPO ON 3RD FRET)

VERSE 1:
I lost it today
My mind that is
It followed you into the next room
I feel I’ve been played
Don’t wanna feel like this
Knowing that I once held you

CHORUS:
Permanently on my mind like ink to paper
I wish that you could somehow see me through my mirror
How my heart cried for you on those long summer nights

VERSE 3:
You grabbed my heart
And you danced with it
The music swept us both away
Now where do I start?
I act like you don’t exist
Your grip on my heart won’t go away

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
And I’m flying
Then I’m lying
And finally I’m crying
I am trying to move on
Cuz you’re already gone

VERSE 5:
So it’s one foot in front
Of the other now
This road is long, I’ll take a while
But I’ll tell you I am strong
And even though I’m down
You must believe me when I smile

CHORUS
Track Name: Walking Strong
WALKING STRONG
Words and Lyrics by Samantha Schultz
© 2009 Samantha Schultz SOCAN

Glory me, you have been so mistaken
Sitting under your raincloud all this time
Do you want to be free? Baby it’s so easy
Shake out your umbrella; step into the shine

Cuz walking strong will always get you somewhere
Where you gonna go if you’re standing still?
Bring on the rain, bring on the clouds
There ain’t nothing gonna bring you down
Keep moving on cuz you’re walking strong

Time to breathe; get your hands off your throat
Was it you who put yourself into this place?
Yes you’ve sighed, and you’ve cried
But do you see that ray of sunlight?
It’s telling you it’s time to put a smile on your face

CHORUS

It’s all up to you
There’s nothing no one else can do
Take charge of your life
And make sure you shine

Take it from me: not a lot in life comes easy
But I’m here to tell you something sure
You’ve gotta take charge, follow your head and your heart
You’ll be off to a real great start
Your strength and your belief will lead the way

CHORUS
