Lyrics

I Can’t Breathe

Music & Lyrics by Kayana

Every waking day another life is stolen
Whatever happened to the land of the free?
Trevon Martin, Tamir Rice, Eric Garner, Ahmaud Arbery
Terence Crutcher, Mike Brown, the list goes on and on and on
Breonna Taylor, we’d be 27 but she didn’t have the chance
George Floyd, he left his daughters behind
Will my Daddy be next?

Chorus
I can’t breathe (8x)

How are we to trust anyone anymore
When the protector and the aggressor are one in the same?
Just breathing, just being can put us in danger
We’re calling for justice (when do we want it?) We want it now!
Oh God, this ain’t right
I can’t stay silent no more
So hear me when I say

Chorus
I can’t breathe (8x)

Look at me, what do you see?
Do you see me or just the color of my skin?
We breathe the same, we bleed the same
So why don’t you see me the same?
We’re all God’s children
He doesn’t discriminate
God I pray, make this right, Lord
Are not all men created equal?
‘Cause that’s all we’re asking for

Chorus
I can’t breathe (8x)

Dance With Me

Music & lyrics by Kayana

It’s been a long day and I’m taking the A train home
It doesn’t seem long when I’ve got you by my side
Gonna pop the cork off of a vintage bottle of wine
Take a sip and play our favorite song

Chorus
I’ll chassé through the halls and leap into your open arms
You’ll sway me back and forth; you’ll spin me out and back again
Every step feels right when it’s with you
So won’t you dance with me tonight

Don’t have to say a word, just take my hand
Take a step closer and so will I
Hold me tight with arms of comfort and joy
Without a care in the world, let the beat take us away

Chorus

Til the End

Music & Lyrics by Kayana

I knew we weren’t perfect
but I thought we could make it work
I guess we didn’t want the same things
Where’d it go wrong?

“It’s not you, it’s me”
I’ve heard that countless times now
It’s never easy but I learned to love
And to forgive

Chorus
How many tries does it take to get it right?
It’s been one heartbreak after the next
Don’t play pretend cause I won’t be fooled anymore
I need somebody who’ll take me til the end

You treated me like royalty
Greeting me with a single rose
You’d have me dancing with you
Spin me around

We’d share our favorite songs
Singing in harmony
I’ve loved every minute with you
Wouldn’t trade it at all

Chorus

He said goodbye
I said “thank you, next”
I can’t be wasting my time
He wasn’t worth it in the end

I’m
I’m moving on
Cause I know my day will come
It’ll be worth it in the end –ohhh oo

It’s not easy letting go
We can’t always take the easy road
These tears will come and go but
They’ll make me stronger

They say the man upstairs
has got it all figured out
I know He’s got a plan for me
That doesn’t make it easier

Chorus

Fight for My Love

Music & lyrics by Kayana

I’m far from perfect; can’t change who I am
I’m covered in bruises from head to toe
Can’t hide my scars, they’re there for good
Nothing can hurt me no more; I’m stronger now

No glitter on my face, no red on my lips
No color on my nails; left my heels at home
I’m not putting on a show; ain’t no time for that
It’s just me in my ripped jeans and my baggy shirt

Chorus
Will you take me as I am, despite my imperfections
I can’t be all that for you, but ima give you all I got
Forget all of your worries; I ain’t going nowhere
Will you fight for me; Will you fight for my love

Hit me up when you need a friend
We’ll have a glass of Yamazaki and we’ll talk all night
We’ll get drunk and dance to Ed Sheeran
Before you know it it’s 2:00 in the morning

I’ll let you stay over, just me and you tonight
I don’t play no games, just talk to me straight
When I wake up it’s you holding me close
There’s no one else I want next to me

Chorus

I’ll fight for you if you fight for me
Don’t throw my love away like all the rest
I promise you; it’s gonna be worth it

Chorus
