Album
Name of Song: Those pieces of ourselves

You say you want to change the world,
And create your unique brand,
Breathe your special love into
Just everything you can.

It came to us as a miracle,
This living breathing child,
How much can you love someone,
Such innocence, so mild.

Chorus
Those pieces of ourselves delight
in children of our own,
They talk and walk and make their way,
Oh look at how they’ve grown.
You hope they do like you do,
You hope they see you’re right,
Our way of leaving pieces of,
Ourselves to give them might.
_______

Leave pieces of ourselves around,
We do it all the time,
Our way of simply changing what
seems endless spell of mind.

That sudden thrust of newness,
That thrill we all look for,
A rush of instant create occurs,
And a chance to even score.

Chorus
Those pieces of ourselves delight
in children of our own,
They talk and walk and make their way,
Oh look at how they’ve grown.
You hope they do like you do,
You hope they see you’re right,
Our way of leaving pieces of,
Ourselves to give them might.

Bridge
Always leaving pieces of,
Ourselves around about,
Our way to leave our mark on what
We choose to leave no doubt.
You’d think there was a better way
To leave ourselves in part,
But these old habits just don’t die,
They stem from our own “heart”.
______

As I look on down at our baby,
My hope and thrill ignite,
Our future seems much brighter now,
Their time to rise in height.

Infusing my own being,
Into everything they do,
Helping them to live their life
So I know they’ll make it through.

Chorus
Those pieces of ourselves delight
in children of our own,
They talk and walk and make their way,
Oh look at how they’ve grown.
You hope they do like you do,
You hope they see you’re right,
Our way of leaving pieces of,
Ourselves to give them might.
