    Because of U

    Because of U

    -written by Stuart Hollinger-

    Giving credit to Akua (God).

    Up from humble depths I came

    given no chance labeled lame

    Pushed pulled told I’m no good

    taken for granted misunderstood

    Break my will make me fold

    use empty words hard and cold

    Then I met U

    U were just like me

    turned on the light so I could see

    Chorus

    All because of U

    All because of U

    Criticized not playing the game

    no way I’m gonna ride that train

    Paid the price, stood my ground

    painted me as a foolish clown

    Join the ranks U will lose

    I refused kept singing the blues

    Gold record moment

    when U walked in

    Now there’s no way I won’t win

    Chorus

    Knew right away

    when I opened the door

    U were the one I was looking for

    Hoist the sails, sail away

    Happy days, here to stay

    Chorus

    Falling

    Falling

    -written by Stuart Hollinger-

    The uncertainty of love, until the right one comes along.

    Wasn't looking to find someone

    was quite content to be by myself

    Didn’t need disappointment

    played it safe, lived in a bottle

    Many friends, no one special

    no commitments, can’t get hurt

    Did not think this day would come

    Then I met U

    Chorus

    Think I’m falling

    falling in love with U

    Falling in love

    Falling, falling in love with U

    Falling in love

    Broken dreams, must let go

    relationships do fall apart

    Tug of war, way down deep

    do I trust or walk away

    Stormy clouds come and go

    sunny days on the rise

    You’re the one I’ve waited for

    to come in my life

    Chorus

    U stopped my world

    had me see the power of love

    We’ve found each other

    I count my blessings

    you’re in my arms here and forever

    Chorus

    Not Enemies

    Not Enemies

    -written by Stuart Hollinger-

    Was inspired by the 7/8 - 8/26 clash in Gaza. Why?

    All I’ve known since I was born

    it’s a struggle to survive

    Day after day violence continues

    takes a lot of luck to stay alive

    Bombs explode, screams of pain

    smell of death, tears of sadness

    No options, all or nothing

    My future is I’m dead in a coffin

    Chorus

    Children, men, women, sisters and brothers

    Why O Why do we continue to suffer

    How long will it take us to see

    we don’t need to be each others enemy

    Back in time when we were neighbors

    lived together side by side

    We disagreed, but worked it out

    We found solutions, no blood shed

    Fast forward here and now

    we live in fear breathing hate

    Caught in the middle innocent people

    pay the price with their lives

    Chorus

    Caught in the middle innocent people

    pay the price with their lives

    Chorus

    Yolo

    Yolo

    (You only live once)

    -written by Stuart Hollinger-

    Live life to the fullest. No regrets.

    Perilous journey, destination unknown

    Keeping your mind clear

    head in a zone

    Trials, tribulations, racing the clock

    Parting the sea

    climbing mountains of rock

    Reach for the stars, don’t think twice

    full speed ahead keep rolling the dice

    Chorus

    Yolo, Yolo

    Yolo, Yolo

    Yolo, Yolo

    You only live once

    Looking, learning, desires high

    Days so short, time really flies

    Gotta keep moving

    Can’t stay in one place

    Pushing, striving, upping the pace

    Take the plunge, jump right in

    Never trying is the only sin

    Chorus

    Follow your dreams

    trust your heart

    Dreams come true

    don’t wait to start

    Follow your dream

    believe U can

    Spirit Above will lend a hand

    Chorus

    Picking Up the Pieces

    Picking up the Pieces

    -written by Stuart Hollinger-

    Something everyone has experienced.

    There’s a feeling I get

    when I see U around

    Still remember the first time

    our night on the town

    The way U looked in my eyes

    it was hard to pretend

    Then I kissed U

    didn’t want it to end

    Chorus

    U made life worth living

    so I gave my heart to U

    Why does love have to hurt so much

    Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh

    Picking up pieces of a broken heart

    Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh

    Picking up the pieces of my broken heart

    Precious moments we shared

    live on in my mind

    Your twinkling eyes

    your smile so divine

    Thought we would last

    we were so cool

    Funny how fate can be so cruel

    Chorus

    Kissed many lips

    none as sweet as yours

    Now and then my sadness over pours

    Chorus

    Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh

    Picking up the pieces of a broken heart

    Dog House

    Dog House

    -written by Stuart Hollinger-

    Men will understand.

    Walk inside lights are on

    Oh my God trouble brews

    There she is hands on hips

    angry eyes glare at me

    Don’t recall what I did

    search my mind wish I knew

    Take a breath count to three

    want to run can’t U see

    Chorus

    I’m in the dog house tonight

    it’s not a pretty sight

    How long do I have

    to pay for this

    In the dog house tonight

    just can’t get it right

    How long do I have

    to stay outside

    See your pain did U wrong

    big mistake their’s no doubt

    I should know, I should do

    a better job loving U

    U ask me, ask me why

    things U say I block out

    Hold my tongue, have no words

    face my fate see it thru

    Chorus

    Take a breath count to three

    want to run can’t U see

    Chorus

    Surrendering

    Surrendering

    -written by Stuart Hollinger-

    Beating the odds, finding that special someone.

    No more struggles, no more strife

    my heart is free you’re in my life

    Somewhere along the way

    we lost each other, had dues to pay

    Your memory had become a blur

    just a touch, I knew who U were

    I see U, I see Me

    our souls one in harmony

    Chorus

    Surrendering to this fate

    that brought U back to me

    Surrendering to this fate

    my life’s complete

    found my soul mate

    To know U once again

    the wait is over, you’ve returned

    Haunted by dreams of U

    now it’s real

    the dreams have all come true

    Look inside your deep eyes

    colored veils where the spirit lies

    I see U, I see Me

    our souls one in harmony

    Chorus

    Look inside your deep eyes

    colored veils where the spirit lies

    I see U, I see Me

    our souls one in harmony

    Chorus

    She's Hot

    She’s Hot

    -written by Stuart Hollinger-

    I’m sure a lot of guys have been here.

    What a cutie

    bonafide beauty

    no doubt about that

    Dressed for success

    screaming black dress

    can’t stop looking

    She is a charmer

    has perfect armour

    Word on the street

    This Babie’s spicy and sweet

    Chorus

    She’s Hot, tantalizing

    So hot, temperature rising

    She’s Hot, feeding my fire

    So hot, all I desire

    Drop dead gorgeous

    sensual goddess

    heart breaker

    Sexy vibrations

    seductive temptation

    casting a spell

    Yes I’m a wanting

    a taste of her flaunting

    Word on the street

    This Babie’s spicy and sweet

    Chorus

  • 03:54 Lyrics
    Night People

    Night People

    -written by Stuart Hollinger-

    Some people only function and live for night.

    Waiting for the time

    when the sun goes down

    Feeling change begin

    Feeling born again

    Twilight’s when we rise

    wearing blood red eyes

    Chorus

    We only come out at night

    when the moment’s right

    Passion’s raring to go

    a hell of a show

    Swinging fast and loose

    wicked adrenaline boost

    about to lose my mind

    Electrified

    Quick on the draw

    ready for the prize

    Thirsty for a thrill

    Thirsty need my fill

    Madness comes alive

    meet Jekyll and Hyde

    Chorus

    Internal fire burning higher

    Oooooooooohhhhhhhh

    Twilight’s when we rise

    meet Jekyll and Hyde

    Chorus

  • 04:04 Lyrics
    Steffanie

    Steffanie

    (Robert’s Song to Steffanie)

    -written by Stuart Hollinger-

    A silly love song.

    Dark brown eyes

    long brown hair

    When she smiles

    I know she cares

    It feels so right

    when I’m with her

    Sweet lioness

    love when she purrs

    Chorus

    OoH Steffanie

    OoH Steffanie

    You’re my sunshine

    All I see

    OoH Steffanie

    Looked at U

    took a chance

    Didn’t know

    I’d find romance

    Life is good

    I’m with U

    Yes I’ve found

    a love that’s true

    Chorus

    Ooh Steffanie

    Steffanie I need U

    Ooh, Ooh Steffanie

    You’re my Angel

    set me free

    Honey Girl

    Honey Girl

    -written by Stuart Hollinger-

    Someone special who earned her wings.

    Any hour or time of day

    My chick is always ready to play

    My Baby sent from Above

    My Honey all about Love

    Jumps in my arms

    sings in my ear

    she’s a fighter, has no fear

    My Baby sent from Above

    My Honey all about Love

    Chorus

    She may not be able to see

    what’s ahead or behind

    Makes no difference

    ‘cause this little girl

    is one of a kind

    She don’t wear diamonds

    rubies or gold

    Says they’re too heavy

    lifeless and cold

    She’s got charisma

    charms galore

    The house sweetens

    when she glides thru the door

    My Baby sent from Above

    My Honey all about Love

    Chorus

    My Honey Girl, all about Love

    My Honey Girl, sent from Above

    Yes Honey Girl, all about Love

    Soldier's Story

    Soldier’s Story

    -written by Stuart Hollinger-

    The ordeals our Vets face returning home.

    Returning back home stuck in a zone

    Took it on the chin from places I’ve been

    Demons seize my mind, horror magnified

    Paid the price

    Words don’t describe turmoil inside

    voices in my head, things won’t be said

    Need to smoke a joint

    getting to the point of no return

    Chorus

    I have changed

    I’m not the same

    Look at Me

    Freedom’s Not Free

    Can’t concentrate, cold and irate

    Negative, hard, always on guard

    Guilt and shame some days insane

    A distant stranger

    No escape, wish I had a cape

    Nowhere to run, sleep with a gun

    Don’t reach out, it’s not what I’m about

    Hanging on

    Chorus

    Cold sweat at night

    Unspeakable fright

    Where to begin, fitting back in

    Wife and family…….Oh so worried

    Chorus

    Oh Oh, Oh Oh, Oh Oh

    Freedom’s Not Free

NOTES
My 12 original songs have a message touching love, broken hearts, our veterans, our environment and a call for peace in the world. My words are brutally honest and contain my passion for each song!
The song "Because of U" honors God and what he brings to our lives.........if we allow it. "Not Enemies" is a story about life in the Gaza Strip. When will this madness stop? "Yolo"... says it all........You Only Live …

                                   Home in Georgia ( Tyler's Cross Roads )

     

    Verse    Thru the country side by corn fields I go   60 miles from Atlanta ya know

               Wait’s a place I always go in my dreams  Very Special

     

    Verse    Down the dusty road I can’t wait to see

               That old wooden house beneath  pecan trees

               Smell of cornbread drifting on the breeze

               Make’s my mouth water, I can taste it now

     

                

    Chorus  I’m going back to the old homestead  Back to Georgia , the dirt so red

                 You wake up ready for that down home cooking

                 And country hospitality Home in Georgia

     

    Verse   Oak trees standing proud beneath blue skies

               In the distance white tail softly cries

               Brood of gobblers under whispering pine

               It’s nature’s wonder amazing all the time

     

    Verse   Big Mama’s garden was the talk of the town

               People would come and look from miles all around

               In wide eyed wonder when they drank in the sight

               They’d all be smiling brightening up like light

    Let It Be Known

                                           Let it be Known

     

                  

    Verse    Growing pains can be so heavy especially  those around you

                Don’t understand your point of view  locked into one’s own

                Is it a crime to be so different, is it a crime at all

                Time is now to seize the moment I see the path so clear

     

    Chorus     Let it be known  let it be known I've got my own like to lead

    Verse  Touching the power ready to fly, cutting the chains that bind you

              Marching along to a distant beat, guided  by a higher light

              Braving change in my body, braving change of my mind

              Blazing a trail having no doubts setting a pace to follow

     

                            

    Solo   

     

    Chorus     So  Let it be known let it be known I got my own life  To lead

                    Letting it go letting it go  I got my whole life

                    Let it be known let it be known  I got my whole life

                    Touching the power I’m ready to fly

                    I’m cutting the chains that bind you

                    I’m guided by a higher light I’m guided by a higher light

                    I got my own life  I got my whole life to be
