'Your Star'

This lyric is called: 'Your Star'. It is metaphorical and literal - in the sense that the desire is to make people believe in themselves. I hope most of my lyrics promote good feelings or help one believe in themselves a little bit more.

Hope you like it. It's called:

If I smiled at you
Would you try one on too?
It might just suit you
If I laughed all day
Would you join the craze?
It might just amaze

Cos you are individual
So spontaneous so wonderful
You live for the moment
Not worried about rough treatment
Cos you are so beautiful
And nothing can stand in your way at all
Because once you accept who you are
Nothing can refute the shine from your star

So what you hiding?
You know it’s gonna come out sometime
Don’t be afraid to let your light shine
How many people there are who feel just like you                         
There’s not much one person can do
To make you believe that it’s oh so true
(Repeat Chorus)
So no don’t you hide away
Behind that cornerstone hey
You have to have a voice
If you wanna be heard
You have a choice
Now kick up a storm if it’s what you want
(Repeat Chorus)

Thank you for reading.

'Questions Of A Breaking Heart'

Uni has been mental and I guess I've been forgetful! I am so happy to be back, this is where I belong!!

Back to the lyrics, I wrote this lyric after seeing Danny Jones playing football at soccer aid. I hope you like it. Comments welcome as are posts on my wall on facebook if you don't wish to make an account. As always, if you want to attempt to put some music to the lyric please let me know via twitter (@steph_carfrae), facebook or leaving a comment below. Thank you.


It’s always a heartbreaker
When you see him running off to her
There’s always something going on in your mind all the while
He kisses her and smiles

Why can’t they end?
Why can’t she give up?
These are questions you ask yourself
When you are so in love
Why can’t he see?
That he and I are meant to be
All questions of a breaking heart

It’s always a heartbreaker
When you see him kissing her so tenderly
There’s always someone who wants to interrupt
But then again he’s happy in love
(Repeat Chorus)
I know what it’s like
I’ve had this feeling many times
(Repeat Chorus).

'London 2012'

I'm going to ask readers' like you, to help me name this lyric. I want you guys to have your say! Either on my twitter @steph_carfrae tweet me words for titles or on my facebook just post on my wall, or indeed leave a comment at the bottom of this post. Thanks. I will let you know what I've chosen next week!

 What an amazing summer this has been! I never got to go to either the olympics or paralympics but my parents and sister and brother went to the paralympics on the night of Pistorious's 400m final and held the phone up for me! I was just overwhelmed by the spectacular human spirit that everyone witnessed during the games and I hope it continues. So I wrote this lyric the moment after I had finished watching the parade of our greatest team on TV. It's dedicated to all those heroes. I hope you like it.

It’s over it’s done
Everyone had their moment in the sun
We’ll look back in years to come
And be amazed by the hurdles we’ve overcome
We have exceeded many expectations
And grabbed the world’s full attention
I am proud of everything we’ve achieved
I am talking for the nation we’re one big family

I am so proud of you today and always
You’ll never wipe the smile off my face
You’ve made the impossible seem possible
You’ve taken us on a journey so incredible
I never wanted it to end
But every good thing must my friend
So we can appreciate everything you went through
I wanna thank everyone, especially you

The final whistle’s blown
I know I’m not alone
In saying you truly inspired
Everyone in their lives to go higher
We have done ourselves proud
Take the words and scream them out loud
I am proud of everything we’ve achieved
I am talking for the nation we’re one big family
 (Repeat Chorus)
I am so proud of everyone it’s just brought us together
A feeling like this will hopefully last forever
Your smiles will last a life-time
In our hearts and in our minds
Oh yeah yeah
(Repeat Chorus).

'Today Is My Someday'

Hot off the press! I only just wrote this tonight, because I was so inspired by the British performance in the paralympics. Everyone whor got a medal tonight is a true hero in my eyes - Dave Weir to first timer Jonnie Peacock. Honestly can't believe that that was Jonnie's first games he had such great composure and just stormed the field! He is a lil' gorgeous too!

So my song (although it's a love song and maybe wishful thinking about Jonnie on my part) is dedicated to the truimph of the 2012 games - both paralympic and olympic!

I was just too excited to wait another week to share this with you guys - and yes, I will be posting next Wednesday as per usual. Any comments welcome, either on here, on facebook or on my twitter @steph_carfrae !!

So here it is. Hope you like it!!

It's called: Today Is My Someday

I am so intrigued by you
Got me taking a leave of absence for you
I wanna know more about what you do
So let the rain pour c’mon and show me the truth
I’ll tell you one thing I’m not gonna lie
I think you’ll fall about a thousand times
But everyone needs that to come back with more venom
Next time you just see who’s laughing

I know I can hold you when the nights get colder
I know for me you never have a cold shoulder
And I can betcha
That I’m gonna make my someday today
I know I can cry on your shoulder
When the days and nights get colder
And I can betcha
That today is my someday

I am impressed by you
You’re so smartly dressed and good looking too
Just keep talking wind the hours away
I’m mesmerized you’ve got me in a daze
But I ain’t complaining oh no no
You just show me the way to go
It’s taken you to inspire me
Next time we’ll just see who’s laughing
(Repeat Chorus)
Have you ever thought about
The best feeling in the world
I know without doubt
It’s being called your girl
Cos oh yes I know
(Repeat Chorus)

'Not Alone'

Most of these lyrics I wrote a few years ago, and because I'd never had a way to get them out before, I am sharing them with you now! But hopefully, I will get to put up some modern day stuff if and when I can. I am excited to be sharing these lyrics and getting feedback though, as it has been a long time coming!

'Not Alone' is a response to a song of the same title by none other than Danny Jones of McFLY. Hopefully it promotes the same kind of hopefulness that Danny's song picks up on. Because yes, we all have a hard life and every one of us is dealing with issues, but hopefully through lyrics like these you'll see you're really not alone. Hope you like it. Opinions appreciated. Please leave them below. If you'd like to attempt to put music to any of my work please comment below too.

It's called:

When I have fought
And I’ve given it my all
At my door I see you
And it doesn’t matter whether I win or lose
I know you will be there for me
And undoubtedly you will care for me
I just need to open my windows to clear the air

Cos when the punches have been thrown
And I’m left standing all alone
I know I won’t be on my own
You once told me I’m not alone
When all the bruises have gotten too deep
And the pain I feel begins to seep
I know I’ll never be
On my own
Cos you once told me I’m not alone

When I’ve seen it through
Endless nights with you
Take me to another place
And no matter what you put a smile on my face
Yeah yeah I know you will be strong
And tell me ooh I need to hold on
I just need to open up and sing my song oh yeah
(Repeat Chorus)
Baby when I’m lying on the floor
And I really can’t take no more
You cover me in love and make me strong
You give me the will to go on
You say yes the road is long
But you know you’ll never be alone
So keep struggling on
Cos you are never alone
(Repeat Chorus).
