Was your spirit ever just tired and broken?


You felt you couldn‘t go on?


Or didn’t want to go on?


Maybe you were just fed up.


Either way, I hope this song picks you up after a hard day or season.


You have so much ahead of you!


Dream BIG!!!


“I STILL HAVE BIG DREAMS”

Songwriter: © Fatima Morken, 2016 BMI


VERSE 1:

It’s ok because I made it to the end

It’s ok because I’m still intact and whole

The light is here

I’m walking in it

I’m breathing it

It’s ok because I don’t turn nor look back

It’s ok because I’m looking beautiful

The tunnel is traveled

I’m burying it

Forgetting it


1st PRE-CHORUS:

Ah, ah, ah, ah the relief has come to me

Ah, ah, ah, ah an eternity of promises 

Ah, ah, ah, ah


CHORUS:

I still have big dreams

I still have one hope

For my life is worth so much more than this

I still have my eyes

On the things of Heaven

For they dwell in me and my hope never dies


VERSE 2:

It’s ok because I have nothing to lose

It’s ok because I’ve lost everything

My heart is wrapped in the arms of Heaven

In the arms of Heaven

It’s ok because I’m not here for myself

It’s ok because I overcame it all

Peace covered my insufficiency

Love carried me


2nd PRE-CHORUS:

Ah, ah, ah, ah the relief has come to me

Ah, ah, ah, ah an eternity of promises

That aren’t broken ever, that aren’t broken ever 

Ah, ah, ah, ah


REPEAT CHORUS

Sometimes, there just really isn’t anything we can do to improve certain situations.


Options run out. Patience runs out.


Simply accepting the fallacy of others’ actions as well as our own is the best closure.


We cannot blame others or ourselves.


Culpability can‘t always be justly pinned. It‘s difficult to see where it lies at times.


Why point fingers, retaliate, avenge and make matters worse?


Whose fault is it truly?


Many times, we are victims of the unfavorable circumstances this disorderly world hands us.


There is too much to think through.


Eventually, we have to permit the universe take its course and allow future events to guide us.


I penned the lyrics of this song as an observation of this human condition.


May we have the wisdom to better ourselves after every failure we encounter on our trajectory.


“I DIDN’T KNOW”

Songwriter: © Fatima Morken, 2015 BMI


VERSE 1:

I see destruction and animosity

all around me

I see how we destroy our gorgeous selves

Selfishly

I see how burdened I become at night

and in dreams

I sense my choices tarnishing the light

within me


CHORUS:

I didn't know

I didn't know

I didn't know my choices would lead me to devastation

I didn't know

I didn't know

I didn't know the love for myself would rust my soul to corrosion

I didn't know


VERSE 2:

I understand how I’ve betrayed myself

and those

Whom I told once I loved with all my heart

and chose

To ignore their plea when they asked for

my help

And I refused to lend a hand

and now I fall apart


REPEAT CHORUS


BRIDGE:

So I want to go back

and start over again

and search for those

I've hurt so much

and strictly silenced

By ignoring their pleas

and their desperate attempts

In retrospect

I regret


FINAL CHORUS:

I didn't know

I didn't know

I didn't know my choices would lead me to devastation

I didn't know

I didn't know

I didn't know the love for myself would rust my soul to corrosion

I didn't know

I didn't know

I didn't know

I didn't, I didn't know
