Powerful Peony Love Songs

Life is hard and the living rough
But these are the times when you gotta stand up
Don’t let them break them down or tear you up
These are the times when you gotta stand up
You can turn it around
You can turn it around
And I’ll be waiting here for you
‘Till the sun comes up and the stars fall out
I’ll be waiting here for you
You know I will be,
I’ll be, I’ll be waiting, waiting, waiting
‘Till the sun comes up and the stars fall out
I’ll be waiting here for you
You know I will be,
I’ll be, I’ll be waiting
Day by day it might be hard to do
But these are the times when you gotta push through
Can’t let them break you down or bend the truth
These are the times when you gotta push through
You can turn it around
You can turn it around
And I’ll be waiting here for you
‘Till the sun comes up and the stars fall out
I’ll be waiting here for you
You know I will be,
I’ll be, I’ll be waiting, waiting, waiting
‘Till the sun comes up and the stars fall out
I’ll be waiting here for you
You know I will be,
I’ll be, I’ll be waiting
Never let them see you break in the middle
Let your heart get too little or get lost in the riddle
Never let them see you break in the middle
Let your heart get too little or get lost in the riddle
And I’ll be waiting here for you
‘Till the sun comes up and the stars fall out
I’ll be waiting here for you
You know I will be,
I’ll be, I’ll be waiting, waiting, waiting
‘Till the sun comes up and the stars fall out
I’ll be waiting here for you
You know I will be,
I’ll be, I’ll be waiting

“Maybe there’s a way out of the cage where you live
Maybe one of these days you can let the light in
Show me how big your brave is!”

“It started out as a feeling,
which then grew into a hope.
Which then turned into a quiet thought,
which then turned into a quiet word.
And then that word grew louder and louder, ’til it was a battle cry…”

Get out of my way, I’ve got things to do.

“I got this feeling, I ain’t ever giving up.”

“And I don’t really care whether nobody else believes, cause I still got a lot of fight left in me.”

“They say no way, I say I rule the world. Ain’t afraid of the walls, gonna break them down. They stay the same while I’m feeling high as a bird. Ain’t afraid of the crowd, gonna stay up. I say yeah, yeah, yeah, they say no, no, no, They say slow, slow, slow, I say go, go, go. They say no way, I say I rule the world. I rule the world.”

“I’m past patiently waitin’
I’m passionately smashin’ every expectation
Every action’s an act of creation
I’m laughin’ in the face of casualties and sorrow
For the first time, I’m thinkin’ past tomorrow
And I am not throwing away my shot.”

There’s more out there for me.

“Do you still wait for me, dream giver?  Just around the riverbend.”

“And nobody, in all of Oz; no Wizard that there is or was, is ever gong to bring me down.”

It’s time to move on.

“All the broken hearts in the world still beat. Let’s not make this harder than it has to be.”

“You helped me down but I got up- get ready cause I’ve had enough.”

“The players gonna play, the haters gonna hate. But I’m just gonna shake. Shake it off.”

“I don’t know where I belong but I’ll be moving on if you don’t– if you won’t– listen.”

I need a break.

“It’s my party, dance if I want to, we can get crazy let it all out.”

“Don’t be fancy, just get dancey.”

“When I get older, I will be stronger, they’ll call me freedom, just like a waving flag. So wave your flag, and wave your flag, and wave your flag.”

“They may have stolen the heart from inside you… but this does not define you.  This is not who you are.  You know who you are.”

Wondering how to start?
