Compassion

©2004 Jami Lula

Grateful for your tenderness, when life can feel unkind
Grateful for the way you see , when I’m stuck inside my mind
Grateful for your courage to hold your steady ground
Grateful for Compassion, when mine cannot be found

Oh Compassion where broken hearts bleed
Sweet Compassion when my souls in need
I find Compassion for friends and enemies
My own Compassion is where my Spirit breathes

Grateful for your thoughtful words when emptiness abounds
Grateful when you take my hand and turn my head around
Grateful for the healing and warmth of your embrace
Grateful for Compassion to touch a deeper place

Oh Compassion where open hearts bleed
Sweet Compassion when my souls in need
I find Compassion for friends and enemies
My own Compassion is where my Spirit breathes

Make me mold me Shape me Shift me
To all that I can be
That I may express your endless Compassion
It’s what I wanna be

Oh Compassion where open hearts bleed
Sweet Compassion when my souls in need
I find Compassion for friends and enemies
My own Compassion is where my Spirit breathes

Oh Compassion where open hearts bleed
Sweet Compassion when my souls in need
I find Compassion for friends and enemies
My own Compassion is where my Spirit breathes


Forgive Myself
©2000 Jami Lula

When I close my eyes and I see the story board
Drawing out the shame of my life

What am I afraid of
Guilt I can’t let go of

Forgive myself when I don’t want to
Forgive myself when I’m blamin you
Forgive myself when I think I can’t I can
Forgive myself when I tell a lie
Forgive myself when I wanna die
Forgive myself and become all that I am

Familiar with the comfort of my pain
Feel a little better then I’m wallowing again
Is it any wonder I can’t let go of it


Forgive myself when I don’t want to
Forgive myself when I’m blamin you
Forgive myself when I think I can’t I can
Forgive myself when I tell a lie
Forgive myself when I wanna die
Forgive myself and become all that I am

Hell is a place
for souls who have not found compassion
For themselves
Hell is the pain
Forgetting that our life is an amazing grace


Forgive myself when I don’t want to
Forgive myself when I’m blamin you
Forgive myself when I think I can’t I can
Forgive myself when I tell a lie
Forgive myself when I wanna die
Forgive myself and become all that I am


FREEDOM
©2004 Jami Lula

I get the feelin that I got to grow
LOVE keeps me runnin, to the me that GOD knows
I’m here to be, to uplift and unfold
Emancipating the Divine of my Soul

Ain't nothin holdin me down
I let go of my story now I'm walkin in the arms of

Freedom Spirit never let / held me down before
Freedom take a walk inside
Freedom chains can't bind I changed my mind about
Freedom take a look inside

My revelation is, to Spirit I'm bound
The past has no power to paralyze me
I'm in the moment -Bless my History

Ain't nothin bringin me down
Let go of my story Now I'm walkin in the arms of

FREEDOM Spirit never held me down before
FREEDOM take a walk inside
FREEDOM chains can't bind my minds been changed about
FREEDOM take a look inside

What can I do that I’ll reveal your Spirit
What can I be that I’ll reveal your Love
What can I say to cure and heal the hunger
What can I pray to be you Joy today


Go Out and Get em
© Jami Lula

Brown eyes like brandy,
olive skin dark chocolate mane
She's not vain

Smiles every morning
wake up and drink black coffee in bed
And she said, she said

Go out and get em
Don't quit till you're finished
Keep goin against the voice in your head
You'll make a difference, at least to yourself
An example to the broken hearted
Bum bwah do do bweh oh
Bum bwah do do bweh oh, bweh oh (2x)

Caught in a quagmire
past politics lust love she re-read
Cause she's been
I won't stay lonely
I won't stay in one place for too long
Move ahead, move ahead

Go out and get em
Don't quit till you're finished
Keep goin against the voice in your head
You'll make a difference, at least to yourself
An example to the broken hearted
Bum bwah do do bweh oh
Bum bwah do do bweh oh, bweh oh (2x)

Grateful
©2004 Jami Lula

There’s my boy in a bucket
in the back yard under the sun
He’s got his head down lookin in the water
just to see what he finds
it won’t take too long before he’s gone to search for somebody else
I’m gonna pay close attention to the moment just to see for myself

I’m not waitin for the time to be right
I’m gonna give that boy my life that I wanted for myself

I can’t go back to where I’ve never been
There’s always a choice I’m choosin him
I’m so grateful for my baby boy
and my wife she brings me Love and Joy
I’m So Grateful Grateful I am so Grateful Grateful

I gotta woman in my bed with a past that I recognize
It’s not mine but I know where she’s been and I realize
we got together for a reason and I just can’t run away
like I did in the past now I’ve made a commitment to stay

I’m not waitin for the time to be right
I’m gonna give this girl my life like I’ve never known myself

I can’t go back to where I’ve never been
There’s always a choice I’m choosin them
I ‘m so grateful for my baby boy ooooohs
and my wife she gives Love and More ooooohs
I’m so Grateful Grateful
I am So Grateful Grateful

Oh Lord won’t you help me to be
The man that you intended to see
I’ve fallen down for years, now I stand in your grace
I know that you are the spark in my step and light on my face

Grateful Grateful

I Won’t Waste One More Minute of My Life
©2001 Jami Lula (ASCAP)

I won’t waste I won’t waste I won’t waste I won’t waste
I won’t waste one more minute of my life (2x)

Every moment, every step I take
Every heart beat, with every breath I breath I’m grateful
It’s sacred, so beautiful.
I feel your precious presence as my life

I won’t waste I won’t waste I won’t waste I won’t waste
I won’t waste one more minute of my life (2x)

Every conversation is an opportunity
to see the light of love shine as our divinity
It’s sacred, so beautiful.
I feel your precious presence as my life

I won’t waste I won’t waste I won’t waste I won’t waste
I won’t waste one more minute of my life (2x)

I have so much more to be grateful than to be sorry for

I don’t care how old I am or how I’ve stumbled down
I’ve got faith and good reason to let my Spirit soar.
like a phoenix thundering out of its dust to sing a song of truth
I’m not stuck inside illusion or the fantasy of youth
and I rise and I sail and I pour beyond the walls I’ve built
and I roar Like a distant Mahalia singing to the Lord!

I won’t waste I won’t waste I won’t waste I won’t waste
I won’t waste one more minute of my life (2x)


Into Your Hands
©2003 Jami Lula

Into your Hands, I commit my Spirit
Into your hands I commit my Soul
Into your hands, I surrender
Into your hands, Oh Lord

I don’t know what the Divine plan is
I can’t make sense of what I can’t see
Yet I know that it’s in order
Beyond my wildest dreams


Into your Hands, I commit my Spirit
Into your hands I commit my Soul
Into your hands, I surrender
Into your hands, Oh Lord

Serenity is not absence
of Life going on around me
It’s the stillness I find at any moment
And the truth that sets me free


Into your Hands, I commit my Spirit
Into your hands I commit my Soul
Into your hands, I surrender
Into your hands, Oh Lord


Let It Go
©2000 Jami Lula

I lost my job, I lost some weight
I lost a ten dollar bill
I lost a friend, I lost my keys
I lost a lot, but not my will

But more than that I still have me
I just realized
Anything I lost is not who I am
Only what you see

Let it go
It’s not worth it’s weight or an ocean full of tears
Let it go
I’m still here knowing I can walk through all my fears

I lost my youth, I lost my innocence
I lost to alcohol
I lost a girl, I lost a woman
I lost to drugs and all my walls

But more than that I still have me
I just realized
Anything I lost is not who I am
Only what you see

Let it go
It’s not worth it’s weight or an ocean full of tears
Let it go
I’m still here knowing I can walk through all my fears

I lost a Gibson, I lost marimbas
I lost my metronome
Lost track of time, Both yours and mine
My heart is my only home

But more than that I still have me
I just realized
Anything I lost is not who I am
Only what you see

Let it go
It’s not worth it’s weight or an ocean full of tears
Let it go
I’m still here knowing I can walk through all my fears

I wanna know what it’s like to live beyond beliefs


LOVE ME
©2000 Jami Lula

Some fool’s got a broken heart
Wants to share it with me
I know, cause I’ve been there before
That fool’s so familiar
You know I’ve heard those tears before
That fool looks in the mirror, back at me

Why can’t I find some compassion
You know I’d find it for you

Cause I wanna love me the best that I can
Find love for all of the worst that I am
See things that you can, that I think I can’t
And then some day
I’ll give the love back to you

Well you see me much better than my looking glass stare
And I’m tired of abusing my heart
Now there’s something calling out to me
I wanna paint pictures clear
But I’m angry, and obstinant, and so full of fear

Why can’t I find some compassion
You know I’d find it for you
Cause I wanna love me the best that I can
Find love for all of the worst that I am
See things that you can, that I think I can’t
And then some day
I’ll give the love back to you

I said one day, maybe Tuesday
I said one day, I’m gonna change my mind
Maybe one day, I’m gonna see me the way Spirit sees me
Maybe one day, maybe today, maybe today
Today is the Day

That I’m gonna Love me the best that I can
Find love for all of the worst that I am
See things that you can that I think I can’t
And then one day
I’ll give the love back to you
I give the Love back to you
I’m givin the love back to you
I give the love back to

Perfect

©2006 Jami Lula

In my eyes, in my mind
In my heart, in my Soul
In my life, I have been
Searching for something, but you were my dream

You’re Perfect You’re Golden
Your light Your Love (My Light My Love

When I breathe , when I swallow
Caress, I feel
When I listen, I hear
The most beautiful Music out of nowhere

You’re Perfect You’re Golden
You’re my light my Love
You’re perfect, you’re golden
You’re my light my Love
Li di de di de di Li de di de di
Li de di di de di

When I’m sad, and dark
Shallow and in doubt
When I’m trying my best to put one foot in front of the other

You’re Perfect You’re Golden
You’re the light of my life You’re my Love from forever
In your reflection, I’m perfect
So I’ll keep looking at you to keep witnessing my perfection
In you, as me
Li di de di de di Li de di de di

You’re holding me, you set me free
Your guiding light, your empathy
Your confidence to express in and as me

You’re the light of my life You’re my Love from forever
In your reflection, I’m perfect
So I’ll keep looking at you to keep witnessing my perfection
In you, as me
Perfect, Golden, Light, My Love


Safe Place to Land
©2004 Jami Lula

As we step out of where we’ve come from
Walking tall in who we’ve become
Being seen for all that we are
Is just one part of our love

I see you and you see me
We welcome each other to our destiny
All that we’re here to express and nothing less
We’re here to share our brilliance

I am your safe place to land
You are my safe place to land
We’ve made a great place to dance

Now we’re walking in our new garden
That we came here to cultivate
Out of seeds that we’d planted long ago
Through the winds of change and fate

I see you and you see me
We welcome each other to our destiny
All that we’re here to express and nothing less
We’re here to share our brilliance

I am your safe place to land
You are my safe place to land
We’ve made a great place to dance

So we’re grateful for all that we’ve been through
Cause it brought us to where we are
And we wouldn’t have wanted something else
To replace this loving heart

I am you and you are me
We thank you GOD for all that we are here to be
All that we’re here to express and nothing less
We dedicate and you Bless, and you Bless, and we’re grateful!


There Is Nowhere That God Is Not

©Jami Lula

Sometimes I forget where I come from
Sometimes I forget where I’m goin to
Sometimes I get so confused I lose my way
Sometimes I know you feel the same

There is nowhere that God is not
There is nowhere that God is not
There is nowhere that God is not
Everywhere I am I know what I got

Sometimes I believe in what I see
Sometimes I believe what I perceive
Sometimes I get so confused I lose my way
Sometimes I don’t know what to say

There is nowhere that God is not
There is nowhere that God is not
There is nowhere that God is not
Everywhere I am I know what I got

I forgot to pray forgot to be still and know ( ooh ooh ooh ooh)
Forgot to forgive myself until I forgave myself ( ooh ooh ooh ooh)
Forgot to ask for help I forgot to say a word ( ooh ooh ooh ooh)
Forgot to believe in me believe in my Spirits worth ( ooh ooh ooh ooh)

There is nowhere that God is not
There is nowhere that God is not
There is nowhere that God is not
Everywhere I am I know what I got
There is nowhere that God is not
There is nowhere that God is not
There is nowhere that God is not
Everywhere I am I know what I Everywhere I am I know what I
Everywhere I am I know what I got


There's a Healin Goin On
©2000 Jami Lula

Let me walk to the banks of the river of Love
Where the current runs deep, baptized in the One
Where there’s no separation and the light is all we see
Honoring all our differences, and Love will set us free

Mother Father God There’s a healin goin on
Mother Father God There’s a healin goin on
Mother Father God There’s a healin goin on
Oh rock my Soul Oh Rock my Soul

I see the blessing in the past, it’s time to requalify
Let’s not forget but learn to forgive, God knows we gotta try
It’s my responsibility to heal the wounds in me
Compassion , faith, & hope, & Love ,& Truth will set us free

Mother Father God There’s a healin goin on
Mother Father God There’s a healin goin on
Mother Father God There’s a healin goin on
Oh rock my Soul Oh Rock my Soul


Through Your Eyes
©2000 Jami Lula

She came inside from the wild blue
Eyes deep like a dusk sky
She stole the breath I drew
She looked into the mirror
But she never could see
Didn’t recognize the woman
she was describing to me
(and she said)

If I could see me through your eyes
Would I believe in all these lies
If I could see me through your eyes
Would I believe in all these lies

I love her head down to her toes
I love the romanesque bridge of her nose
It’s something she’d like to change
(and she said)

If I could see me through your eyes
Would I believe in all these lies

Will she ever see
Her beauty I feel in me

If I could see me through your eyes
Would I believe in all these lies


Something's Calling Me
©1999 Jami Lula

Something’s Calling Me
Something’s calling me
Something’s calling me
Something’s calling me a little bit deeper than I’ve
Ever been before

Feel like I’m walkin on marbles
Can’t still the earth beneath my feet
Is my head in the clouds
my naked legs left dangling
I can feel my heart begin to pound

Something’s calling me
A little bit deeper than I’ve
Ever been before
Something’s calling me
A little bit deeper than I’ve
Ever been before

A long dark night my soul it wonders
Can’t see the light that moves me
If God is everything and everywhere that I belong
Spirit gently wakes me from my sleep
nd everybody sang

Something’s calling me
A little bit deeper than I’ve
Ever been before
Something’s calling me
A little bit deeper than I’ve
Ever been before

Oh Lord, Oh Lord
Take me deeper than I’ve ever been before
Oh Lord, Oh Lord
Pull me deeper than I’ve ever been before
Oh Lord, I know I’m not the only one to
Live inside these Blues
Oh Lord, Oh Lord I surrender my life to you
Oh Lord, Oh Lord I give my life I give my Love to you

Love keeps calling me; Faith keeps calling me; compassion calling me
What keeps calling you what keeps calling you what keeps calling you
A little bit deeper than you’ve ever been before
God is calling me and I’m grateful like I’ve never been before


Light of the World
©2000 Jami Lula

You’re not bad, You’re not selfish
You’re not ugly, You’re not broken
Damaged Or dysfunctional
You’re not the things you tell yourself you are
not the opinions of others or old scars

You are the light, of the world
Make a joyful noise unto the spirit of your life

You’re not stupid , lazy
You’re not fat or too thin
You’re not a big mouth, A cry baby
You’re not a bully or original sin
You’re not the things you tell yourself you are
not the opinions of others or old scars

You are the light, of the world
Make a joyful noise unto the spirit of your life

Cause I’m gonna love youmake my heart your home
and I’m gonna love when you feel alone
and I’m gonna love you when your blues creep in
and I’m gonna love you until the end and start all over again
You are the light, of the world
Make a joyful noise unto the spirit of your life


Waving
©2002 Jami Lula

Papa Paulies baby India was trying to figure out
Why her friend that she loved so much
would not be coming ‘round again

Papa Paulie said to India “He’s in everything you see”
Now she’s waving at Flowers waving @ trees
She’s waving @ nothing or so it seems
She’s waving at the sunrise and she waves as it goes down
Thought she lost her friend to the other side
but his Spirit’s all around

Papa Paul, Nicole and India were driving, to the grave
To lay him down, with heavy hearts a laden
India asked to have the window down

Papa Paulie rolled it silently
She cast her hands into the breeze
Now she’s waving at Flowers waving @ trees
She’s waving @ nothing or so it seems
She’s waving at the sunrise and she waves as it goes down
Thought she lost her friend to the other side
but his Spirits all around

She’s waving Hi Josh, Goodbye Josh
Hello Josh, Don’t go
I’m sad, feel bad
Wanna feel you, everywhere I go

Now she’s waving at Flowers waving @ trees
waving @ nothing or so it seems
She’s waving at the sunrise and she waves as it goes down
Waving @ the 0cean and her heart begins to pound
Because he’s waving, and she’s waving
Thought she lost her friend to the other side
but his Spirits all around


Spirit in the House

Done my time ,I’m so tired
I give up , on my simple mind
It’s not workin, I’m no good
I’m in need, if I only could find the

Spirit in the House repeat 4x

Light says Stop, I go through
Pull me over, said the man in blue
Son you know, what you done did
I say yes, ran a light of red
What’s your hurry? Why the race?
Who you tryin, to keep pace with
Take your time now, it’s alright
God’s your answer, you can’t hide
From the

Spirit in the House repeat 4x

Well I’m on fire, how bout you
Can’t you feel, the spirit guidin you
House ain’t home, Home is where
Love’s Alive, when you wanna dwell
In the

Spirit in the House repeat 4x
