Track Name: What if
What If...... Nicole Edwards

What if I cannot play my guitar
What if I can never hold my own baby
What if I cannot provide for myself
May I still find peace

My body is failing and I don’t like it
I never thought this could happen to me
I’ve tried everything I’m still looking for answers
Give me the strength to live gracefully

What if I cannot play my guitar
What if I can never hold my own baby
What if I cannot provide for myself
May I still find peace

What about all those things that I’ve taken for granted
like plans, dreams and abilities
The world will not end if I stop doing
but I sure see my life differently

How can I get some of that peaceful feeling
I take a deep breath but my fears are still here
No where to run, I may as well face them
And value my blessings like never before

What if I cannot play my guitar
What if I can never hold my own baby
What if I cannot provide for myself
May I still find peace

Let me be thankful for my sight
Let me give thanks for hearing
And I will lift up my voice
And be thankful for love
Be thankful for love
Be thankful for love
Track Name: Joy Seeker
Joy Seeker..... Nicole Edwards

Spinning ‘round in circles
Chasing my own tail
Showing up for rehearsal
Praying I won’t fail
So I went to see the doctor
Things she didn’t know and couldn’t say
Sent me to a specialist
Said “It’s bad I can’t help you, just try to have a nice day.”

I’ve got this life to live and I will not be bitter
I don’t know what lies ahead
so I’m gonna be a Joy Seeker
Joy Seeker

An olive for my hunger
Tea to quench my thirst
Rest to keep me peaceful
It could always be worse
So I’ll surround myself by beauty
I’ll surround myself with love
and if it drains my energy
well it’s not worth it, I have had enough

I’ve got this life to live and I will not be bitter
I don’t know what lies ahead
so I’m gonna be a Joy Seeker
Joy Seeker

My Mamma talked to me about acceptance
She said we’re given what we’re given, you can like it or you can lump it
and for those of us who’re sitting up on the fence
it doesn’t matter where you fall there’s gonna be another wall
Well I could be filled with anger and be bitter
I could judge those around me: who is strong who is weaker
but life’s too short to be stuck in litter
I’m gonna spend my days being a Joy Seeker

I’ve got this life to live and I will not be bitter
I don’t know what lies ahead
so I’m gonna be a Joy Seeker

Track Name: I've got a feelin'
I’ve got a feeling’..... Nicole Edwards

I’ve got a feelin’
My baby’s temper is on the rise
I’ve got a feelin’
My baby’s temper is on the rise
I’m gonna stay out of his way
‘Cause I don’t know what he’s capable of today

I don’t eat eggs no more
They just make my sick
No, I don’t eat eggs no more
They just make my sick
All of that walkin’ on egg shells
It makes me want to quit

I’m doing some devising
I’m devising myself a plan
I’m doing some devising
I’m devising myself a plan
‘Cause I’ve got to find a way
to get away from that man
Yes I do, yes I do

‘Cause I’ve got this feelin’
I’ve got this feelin’ that
My baby’s temper is on the rise
I’m gonna listen to that feelin’
That my baby’s temper is on the rise
I’m gonna stay out of his way
‘Cause I don’t know what he’s capable of today
I’m getting away, I’m getting away.
Track Name: Beautiful Man
Beautiful Man....... Nicole Edwards

He’s got beautiful strong feelings
and he’s not afraid to show them
He holds me in his arms
And there’s nothing up his sleeve
He’s got beautiful strong words
He’s not afraid to say “I’m proud of you”
And when I’ve got something to say
I know he will listen

I will honour how I can
the feelings of this beautiful man
I will honour how I can
my feelings for this beautiful strong man

He’s got beautiful strong hands
and he’s not afraid to use them
He doesn’t build any walls
when there’s something on his mind
he’s got a beautiful strong heart
he’s not afraid to be a friend
There are no strings attached to his love
There is strength in letting go

I will honour how I can
the feelings of this beautiful man
I will honour how I can
my feelings for this beautiful strong man

He has given me energy
He has given me motivation
He has given me beautiful strong feelings

I will honour how I can
the feelings of this beautiful man
I will honour how I can
my feelings for this beautiful strong man
I will honour how I can
the feelings of this beautiful man
I will honour how I can
my feelings for this beautiful strong man

Track Name: Quand je te vois
Quand Je Te Vois....... Nicole Edwards

Quand je te vois
J’oublie mes soucis
Je pense qu’a maintenant et ici
Et on rit, et on rit
Quand je te vois

Je n’ai pas ton accent
J’ai meme pas les paroles
Mais je trouve que les mots
Ne sont jamais suffisants
Et je vais essayer de m’exprimer dans ta langue
comme tu vas essayer de t’exprimer dans ma langue

Car, Quand je te vois
J’oublie mes soucis
Je pense qu’a maintenant et ici
Et on rit, et on rit
Quand je te vois

On joue pas les meme jeux
on joue pas la meme musique
mais je dis: vive la difference
c’est magnifique
Et je vais essayer de m’exprimer dans ta langue
comme tu vas essayer de t’exprimer dans ma langue

Quand je suis toute seule
presque endormie
tu viens dans mes pensees
pour me dire que je suis bien comme je suis

Quand je te vois
J’oublie mes soucis
Je pense qu’a maintenant et ici
Et on rit, et on rit
Quand je te vois
