Gloria

Written by: Rehya Stevens, Jon Kubis, Peter Martin

An angel of the Lord appeared 
With glad tidings of Jesus' birth
To the lowly shepherds of the fields 
So that humble souls 
Would know their worth 
Singing Gloria

Three Wisemen traveled from afar
Guided by a shining star
To a manger in Bethlehem
Bearing precious gifts for him
Singing Gloria
Glory to God in the highest

Chorus:
For he shall reign 
King Of all kings
Holy lamb of God
Born to save this weary world 
Jesus Christ is born

Though Herod was threatening
In power of Israel
None could perish the new born king
For God protected Emmanuel 
So we sing Gloria
Glory to God in the highest

Chorus:
For he shall reign 
Forever 
This baby boy
Born to save this troubled world 
Hail to the son of God 
Hallelujah, Jesus Christ is born 
Hallelujah, Jesus Christ is lord 
For we are blessed this Christmas Day 
Jesus Christ is born

Abracadabra      
Written By: Rehya Stevens & Jon Kubis   
I got a gift                  
A special gift 
Voila, Snap! 
Cuz seeing is believing

With a special twist 
But looks can be deceiving 

It's not just my style 
That's enchanting 
I’ve got the power 
Of commanding 
It's just about time
For transcending 
At the witching hour

And there ain't nothin’ to it 
I've been kissed

With a special gift 
With a special twist 
And nothin’ can diffuse it 

It's not just my style
That’s enchanting 
I’ve got the power 
Of commanding 
It's just about time
For transcending 
At the witching hour
I start chanting 

"Abracadabra 
Quick fingers now

Over & Over

Written By: Rehya Stevens & Tio Banks 

Life takes your all 
When you’re payin’ dues 
It’s another brick wall 
Another catch 22 

Anything you want 
You can achieve it 
Give it all you got 
And believe it 

Anything you want 
You can achieve it 
Give it all you got 
And believe it 

You got what it takes 
(Keep on movin’ - Keep on movin’) 
Forget your mistakes 
(Keep on goin’ - Keep on growin’) 
Let nothin’ stand in your way 
(You can do it - You’ll get through it) 
You’re stronger than you know 

Chorus: 
Keep tryin’ Over & Over 
Keep reachin’ Higher & Higher 
Keep tryin’ Over & Over 
Keep reachin’ Higher & Higher 
Until you’re flyin’ 

For every yes 
You get a million no’s 
And your confidence 
Ebbs more than it flows 

You got what it takes 
(Keep on movin’ - Keep on movin’) 
Forget your mistakes 
(Keep on goin’ - Keep on growin’) 
Let nothin’ stand in your way 
(You can do it - You’ll get through it) 
You get closer every day 

Chorus: 
Keep tryin’ - Over & Over 
Keep reachin’ - Higher & Higher 
Keep tryin’ - Over & Over 
Keep reachin’ - Higher & Higher 
Until you’re flyin’ 

Outro:

Soon… 
You’re gonna smile on these days 
Yeah, these are gonna be the good old days 
Before the best was yet to come 
Oh, the best is yet to come 
Yeah… 
And baby you’ll be flyin’…

Vintage Love

Written By: Rehya Stevens & Larry Antonino 

I’m holdin’ out
For something magical 
I’m holdin’ out
Wishin’ I had a crystal ball 
Explaining every fail
On a chart in detail 
As I’m holdin’ out
And waiting for the one 

Chorus: 
(So Fine) 
I want to feel his strength and protection 
I want to be able to bare my heart 
(Like Wine) 
I want to know under the heat and pressure 
Together is what we are 
(Devine) 
I can survive the thieves and the beggars 
At every turn- stick to my guns 
(Like Wine) 
Out on a hunt for the ultimate treasure 
I want a vintage love 
I want a vintage love 

I’m callin’ out 
Into the physical 
I’m callin’ out 
Beyond the prey of the wolves 
Far from the mother of distress 
She poured me out of her nest 
She poured me out 
To where the rivers run deep 

Chorus: 
(So Fine) 
I want to feel his strength and protection 
I want to be able to bare my heart 
(Like Wine) 
I want to know under the heat and pressure 
Together is what we are 
(Devine) 
I can survive the thieves and the beggars 
At every turn- stick to my guns 
(Like Wine) 
Out on a hunt for the ultimate treasure 
I want a vintage love 
I’m holdin’ out for a vintage love 
I’m sayin’ I want a vintage love 
I’m callin’ out for a vintage love 

Bridge: 
It’s comin’ for me 
Love is coming for me 
It’s comin’ for me 
Love is coming for me 

Repeat Chorus

Outro: 
And I will regard his needs as my own 
And he will regard my needs as his own 
The transformation’s made

All Because Of You

Written By: Rehya Stevens & Sandro Albert 

There was a time 
There was a phase 
I wasn’t right 
I was out of place 

I’d broken down 
I’d suffered fools 
I’d resigned to drown 
‘Til you came to my rescue 

Chorus: 
Now my world is brighter 
My life is better 
My heart is stronger 
All because of you 

Chant: 
I’m happy and I’m smilin’ 
I’m laughin’ no more cryin’ 
All because of you 
I’m happy and I’m smilin’ 
I’m laughin’ no more cryin’ 
All because of you 

I’d lost my faith 
I was cold to the touch 
But the picture in the frame it changed 
When you showed me love 

Once upon a time 
That was how it was 
Once upon a time 
Until you showed me love 

Chorus: 
Now my heart is lighter 
My soul has mended 
My dreams are alive again 
All because of you 

Chant: 
I’m happy and I’m smilin’ 
I’m laughin’ no more cryin’ 
All because of you 
I’m happy and I’m smilin’ 
I’m laughin’ no more cryin’ 
All because of you 

Bridge: 
So thank you 
Thank you 

It’s frightening 
Just thinking 
What could have become of me? 
What could have become of me? 
You came for me 

Chorus: 
Now my world is brighter (you brought me life again) 
My life is better (I’m coming to life again) 
My heart is stronger 
All because of you 
Now my world is brighter (you brought me to life again) 
My soul has mended (I’m comin’ to life again) 
My heart is stronger 
All because of you

Paradise

Written By: Rehya Stevens & Alex Teamer

Imagine how it could be 
If only you were mine 
The images that come to me 
They turn me on all the time 

Chorus: 
I feel the sun beating down 
All the way down in paradise 
I wish we could go down 
To paradise 
I feel the thunder and rain 
All the way down in paradise 
I’d let you take me down 
To paradise 

Can you picture? 
Can you picture this? 
A sweet place that’s warm inside 
Under a waterfall where you’d taste my kiss 
As I hold on to you so tight 

Chorus: 
I feel the sun beating down 
All the way down in paradise 
I wish we could go down
To paradise 
I feel the thunder and rain 
All the way down in paradise 
I’d let you take me down 
To paradise 

Bridge: 
The air sighs with passion 
The fingernail moon has gone full 
And all of nature is magical as 
The two of us in bloom 

Chorus: 
Feel the sun beating down 
All the way down in paradise 
I wish we could go down 
To paradise 
I feel the thunder and rain 
All the way down in paradise 
I’d let you take me down 
To paradise 

I feel the sun beating down 
All the way down in paradise 
I wish we could go down 
To paradise 
I feel the thunder and rain 
All the way down in paradise 
I’d let you take me now 
To paradise 

To paradise 
To paradise

Tolerance

Written By: Rehya Stevens & Alex Teamer 

Elevate 
Let’s Elevate 
Elevate the consciousness 
If you can’t love 
Have tolerance 

He was fine 
With skin as dark as night 
Her love was blind 
She couldn’t see the crime 

In a world of black & white 
She was just a girl in love 
With a boy 
But her father threatened life 
He would not let his daughter love 
A colored boy 

Chorus: 
There’s a better way 
Let’s elevate the consciousness 
If you can’t love 
Have tolerance 

Two kids at school 
Fell into a love so sweet 
For all they knew 
It was still a secret hard to keep 

In a world of wrong & right 
They were just two kids in love 
Without a choice 
But they could not win the fight 
Shamed by sisters & brothers 
Cuz they were boys 

Chorus: 
There’s a better way 
We’ve got to elevate the consciousness 
People if we can’t love 
Have tolerance 

Bridge: 
Let he who is without sin 
Be the first to throw the stone 
Are you without sin? 
Aren’t we all made in the image of him? 
Aren’t we? 
Aren’t we? 

Chorus: 
There’s a better way 
Let’s elevate the consciousness 
People if we can’t love 
Have tolerance 
Because we’ve got to elevate the consciousness 
And if you can’t love 
Have tolerance

A Little Bit Of Rain

Written By: Rehya Stevens & Larry Antonino 

I love the touch of your hand 
More than you know 
I want to be in your plans 

There’s so much that I don’t tell you 
But not because I don’t care 
If you only knew the lengths that I’ll go 
To fight the magic that’s in the air 

Chorus: 
When the wind blows
I shut the windows 
Before a little bit of rain will fall 
I want paradise, but even there half the time 
There’s a good share of rainfall 
There’s not much to gain,
By keepin’ it sane 
And I’m still tender as a baby doll 
Oh and so you scare me like hell
When you love me so well 
Cuz I don’t want to need your at all 

I love the words from your mouth 
Oh… 
Making’ me vulnerable now 

See, I’ve had this fear since the first time I held you 
Of the sting from a cut so fine 
So all my extremes and emotional undoing 
It’s not happening in your mind 

Chorus: 
When the wind blows
I shut the windows 
Before a little bit of rain will fall 
I want paradise, but even there half the time 
There’s a good share of rainfall 
There’s not much to gain,
By keepin’ it sane 
And I’m still tender as a baby doll 
Oh and so you scare me like hell
When you love me so well 
Cuz I don’t want to need your at all 

Bridge: 
And if I had it my way 
I would feel no pain 
No triggers going off like crazy 
The sun would stay up 
I could fall in love 
Not question everything that you’re saying 
I hear what you’re saying… 
Uh, huh… 

Chorus: 
When the wind blows
I shut the windows 
Before a little bit of rain will fall 
I want paradise, but even there half the time 
There’s a good share of rainfall 
There’s not much to gain,
By keepin’ it sane 
And I’m still tender as a baby doll 
Oh and so you scare me like hell
When you love me so well 
Cuz I don’t want to need your love at all 
No, no, no 

I don’t want to need you 
No, no, no… 
Uhhh… 
So you scare me like hell
when you love me so well 
Uhhh… 
Mmmmm…. 
Oh so you scare me like hell
when you love me so well 
And you love me so well

Happiest Woman

Written By: Rehya Stevens & Alex Teamer 

I guess I dodged a few bullets 
On the way 
To such bliss 
Now I’m grateful for each disappointment 
Because they’ve led me 
To your kiss 

Chorus: 
Now I’m the happiest woman in the world 
Take a look at me 
I’m the happiest woman 
In the world 
Now I’m the happiest woman in the world 
Because you love me 
I’m the happiest woman 
In the world 

And now that we are together 
Deep deep down 
So much in me has healed 
And no one has ever loved me better 
No one else 
Ever made me feel 

Chorus: 
Like the happiest woman in the world 
Boy you make me 
The happiest woman 
In the world 
Now I’m the happiest woman in the world 
Because you love me 
I’m the happiest woman 
In the world 

Bridge: 
The day 
You came into my life 
Was a blessing 
And I thank God 
For you every day 
Now my heart 
Is open wide 
Without question 
Where I once doubted 
I’d be strong enough 
To give my all again 

Chorus: 
Now I’m the happiest woman in the world 
Boy you’ve made me 
The happiest woman 
In the world 
Now I’m the happiest woman in the world 
Because you love me 
I’m the happiest woman 
In the world

Sunday Kind Of Love

This could make you run 
When I want you to stay 
Be the end of the fun 
If we’re just playin’ games

When you gonna be mine?

There’s a big bright sun 
Hangin’ in the sky today

In a Sunday kind of love 
We’d be takin’ our sweet time 

No more knockin’ on the back door 
Baby, you could own the key 
We’ll swing out on the front porch 
Soon as winter turns to spring 

We’ve been spendin’ so much time 
When you gonna be mine 
Permanently?

Cuz, boy we ought to be the ones

Or, we could chill at home 
Cuddle up inside 
We could order in 
From our favorite spot 
Anything we want 
We’ll do what we like 
No matter where we are 
We got you & I 
We should be the ones…

In a Sunday kind of Love

Good Man

Written By: Rehya Stevens & Carmen Grillo

My chassis fully loaded 
In every way 
I’ve got luxury I’ve never 
Experienced 

He had it right away 
On that cold New York day 
The classy way he courted 
I couldn’t resist 

No other man 
Elevated my world 
No other man 
Had me tellin’ my girls 

Chorus: 
He’s like flyin’ in first class 
Sippin’ champagne 
He’s a joyride 
In the back of a Bentley 
Summer in Rio 
De Janeiro 
He’s a bonfire 
In ten below zero 
I’ve fallen for a perfect 10 
Hey girls I got a good man! 
He’s the kind who sets the precedent 

I think about my lovers 
Back in the day 
And I know why a future 
Couldn’t exist 
Some of them acted like my brothers 
Some were searching’ for their mothers 
Some were draggin’ so much baggage 
I couldn’t commit 

No other man 
Elevated my mind 
No other man 
Had me sayin’ alright! 

Chorus: 
He’s like flyin’ in first class 
Sippin’ champagne 
He’s a joyride 
In the back of a Bentley 
Summer in Rio 
De Janeiro 
He’s a bonfire 
In ten below zero 
I’m sprung- he’s a perfect 10 
Hey girls I got a good man! 
He’s the kind who sets the precedent 
I got a real good man 
And I don’t think I’ll ever be the same again 

Bridge: 
Emotionally 
He’s available without end 
Spiritually 
He’s humble 
Intellectually 
He’s well read and eloquent 
Essentially he’s 
Dynamic as the ocean 
I flow right into him 

Vamp: 
He must’ve been sent 
From above 
He’s an angel I know yeah, yeah, yeah 
(An angel sent from above) 
He must’ve been sent 
From above 
He’s an angel I know yeah, yeah, yeah 
(An angel sent from above) 
He must’ve been sent 
For me! Oh yeah… 
Never let him go 
Never let him go 
Oh no, no, no, no, no, no… 
I got a good man!

You are a little star 
Given to me from God

Haven’t half the worth of a good heart

You’ll know the treasures in all the earth 
Haven’t half the worth that you are 

Chorus: 
Sarah 
You just started living honey 
You are the dawn of the future 
Sarah 
All glitter & ribbons 
Sent from the light of the universe 

Bridge: 
My love for you is like a mother 
There’s nothin’ I won’t do for you 
In your life you’ll never have to wonder 
Darlin’ who loves you 

Chorus: 
Sarah 
You just started living 
You are the dawn of the future 
Sarah 
All glitter & ribbons 
You carry the light of the universe 
Sarah 
You just started living 
You are the dawn of the future 
Sarah 
All glitter & ribbons 
You carry the light of the universe
