Don't Let Go of Your dreams

by Adrian Newington. © 1991

This is the day,
the rest of your life will begin.
A new world of Love,
a new world of Peace to live in.
And the walls that you've built can come down.
And the Love in your heart can come out.

(Chorus)

Don't let go of your dreams.
Always believe, in the freedom they'll bring.
Don't let go of your dreams.
In your Love is your Life,
and your life has meaning and worth.

Quite and still,
this is the way you will learn.
There in your heart,
a Love to help you return.
From the many rods, you have crossed.
While searching for Love never lost.

(Chorus)

Don't let go of your dreams.
Always believe, in the freedom they'll bring.
Don't let go of your dreams.
In your Love is your Life,
and your life has meaning and worth.

So long you've been away,
trying to find your love.
So long you've been confused,
from daring to be,
what you thought you should be.

(Chorus)

Don't let go of your dreams.
Always believe, in the freedom they'll bring.
Don't let go of your dreams.
In your Love is your Life,
and your life has meaning and worth.

The Believing Way

by Adrian Newington. © 1990

Composed by my Awakening to the value of Persistence of Faith in ones own abilities, and the Actions of Life which respond to those who maintain such attitudes.

Let me tell you 'bout a way to change your life.
That can make your dreams unfold before you eyes.
But you've got to break the link.
and change the way you think.
For there's a chain that binds,
and it'll drag you down each time.

First of all you've got to open up your heart.
And let go of feelings locked within your past.
Then a wonderful peace,
will come when you release,
and you start to see,
how your life can turn around.

(Chorus)

It's the believing way.
And it'll bring you happy days.
And it's a Giving way,
it's a Loving way
It's the believing way.
And you will come to understand.
That your destiny can change,
by your own hand.

Anything that you believe in can come true.
But your Patience and your Faith must see you through.
Keep your head up high.
Don't let the world deny,
all the things,
that you believe can come your way.

(Repeat Chorus)

Miracles Matter

by Adrian Newington. © 1989

Many times in our lives we are graced with simple gifts that tend to go un-noticed as we live our complex lives. But in the stillness of True Self, we will find much beauty abounding. That beauty is all around us and within us.

The scarlet light,
of evening skies,
the moon that softens up the night.
The mountain snows,
the wind that blows,
the changes to our lives.
In a Yellow Rose,
is what nature knows,
and nature is God's wisdom out on show.

(Chorus)

Miracles matter, they help you believe.
Miracles Matter, they're what we need.
Miracles matter, open your eyes.
Miracles matter, understand why.

An answered prayer,
people who care,
someone who's got some Love to share.
The will to strive,
when things aren't right,
a helping hand at the right time.
A baby's cry,
and happy times,
the Love between you and I.

(Repeat Chorus)

Breakaway

by Adrian Newington. © 1987.

This song was a gift to myself and a dear friend of mine, to help us get by the early stages of Separation and Divorce that we were both experiencing at the same time.

Well I've been thinkin' about you,
and been wondering what's going through your mind.
I guess you're thinkin' about me,
Well I'm alright and I am doin' fine.
We were forced to the wall,
but still we found the strength to go on.

(Chorus)

It's time to breakaway from the old ways.
It's time, to make way for the new days,
it's time, it's time to breakaway.
It's time to breakaway... Breakaway!

Well I've been thinkin' about you,
and I can see you've got yourself back in line.
I guess you're thinkin' about me,
I'll play it cool and make the most of time.
We were hopelessly lost,
but still we found our way to the top.

(Repeat Chorus)

Well I've been thinkin' about you,
You'll be right just give yourself some time.
I guess you're thinkin' about me,
I'll play it cool and make the most of time.
We've got to follow our dreams,
this time 'round it's gonna work out.

(Repeat Chorus)

Don't be Afraid

by Adrian Newington. © 1987

This song was composed from the feelings of compassion I experienced after a friend revealed to me, that her Father had behaved in the most inappropriate way possible that any Father could with a young Daughter. Though the song was meant for one, I sing it for many in the hope that my Love through my music, may touch your heart with friendship and understanding.

Don't be afraid of the nightime.
Don't let your fears take you over.
If you want to,
I can show you,
a brand new day.
So you don't have to be afraid,
of the nightime, anymore.

You said to me,
you've been living, in a shadow.
I thought that I could bring you,
into sunlight.
If you hear, what I'm sayin'
I'll offer you a way.
So you don't have to be afraid,
of the nightime, anymore.

My wish for you is to lead a life,
in the sunshine.
And if you need, a helping hand,
you can have mine.
At the dawn, there's no sorrow,
all things are passing by.
So you don't have to be afraid,
of the nightime, anymore.

Talk to Me

by Adrian Newington © 1990

I composed this song for a dear friend of mine and her family. My friends niece developed a serious medical condition which sent the young girl into a coma, and this my way of saying that I was always thinking of them in my heart and in my prayers.

The song is Jesus singing to my friend and her family.

I am what your troubled heart yearns for.
I have seen your tears,
and I know your fears.
I have life and Love to give to you.
If you would talk to me,
if you'd believe in me.

(Chorus)

Anytime you call,
trust that I can hear,
when your heart aches,
for one you Love.
I have only Love,
I long to give to you,
but all I ask of you,
is Love me too.

Simple words I long to hear from you.
No matter where you are,
No matter what you do.
Freedom in your heart I'll give to you.
To know my Love with ease.
To walk in three fold peace.

(Repeat Chorus)

I am what your troubled heart yearns for.
If you would talk to me.

It's gonna be Alright

by Adrian Newington. © 1990

This song will always remind me of a profound Peace that descended upon me in a period of sorrow. In an touch, I was transported from sorrow to joy, and could not help but immediately respond to this new peace and joy by the expression through song. Within five or so minutes, I had the essence of the song, and the rest just followed very soon after.

A peaceful feeling came to me today.
What I needed most, to take my tears away.
In a touch the shadows deep inside,
made way for Love as tears subside,
by a voice that whispered gently to my heart.
And it said...

(Chorus)

It's gonna be alright.
Everything is gonna work out fine.
It's gonna be alright.
Everything is work out fine.
It's gonna be alright,
it's gonna be alright.

I never knew this peace could ever be.
To think it's always been inside of me.
There when I was most in need,
gentle thoughts would come to me.
To teach me how to listen to my heart.

(Repeat Chorus)
