TRUE CONCEPTS FROM MUSIC "HITS"
MUSIC IS NOT JUST TO ENTERTAIN, BUT TO TEACH
COME AND LEARN FROM THIS "BOSS"
WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT

"THE BOSS” - HOME-BASE

"Everybody needs a place to rest
Everybody wants to have a home
Don’t make no difference what nobody says
Ain’t nobody like to be alone”
"Hungry Heart" - Bruce Springsteen Greatest Hits

WHERE DO YOU REST?
WHERE DO YOU CALL "HOME"?
IS IT A PLACE WHERE YOU ARE ALONE
OR WITH OTHERS?
SURELY, NO ONE LIKES TO BE ALONE
BUT MANY PEOPLE ARE
THIS SOCIETY IS BECOMING MORE AND MORE ISOLATED
MORE AND MORE DISTANT FROM EACH OTHER
MORE AND MORE INTEGRATED INTO LIFE
WITHOUT SIGNIFICANT OTHERS
WHAT DO YOU CALL "HOME"?
SOMETIMES IT IS DIFFICULT
TO FIND A "HOME" HERE ON EARTH
SOMETIMES IT IS HARD TO FIND
TRUE REST FROM ALL THE STRESS
SOMETIMES, YOU HAVE TO BE ALONE

BUT I HAVE NEWS FOR YOU, DEAR PEOPLE
YOU CAN FIND A "HOME" WITH ME WHEREVER YOU ARE
YOU CAN FIND REST WITH ME IN EVERY CIRCUMSTANCE
YOU TRULY NEVER HAVE TO BE ALONE
I AM ALWAYS LISTENING TO YOU
ALWAYS
COME AND FIND REST
AND FIND YOUR "HOME" WITH ME
COME

I AM
HERE ALWAYS
ALWAYS

STREET SURVIVOR
I HAVE A DREAM!

"Rising up - back on the streets . . .
went the distance now I’m back on my feet
So many times it happens too fast
You change your passion for glory
Don’t lose your grip on the dreams of the past
You must fight to keep them alive”
"Eye of the Tiger" - Survivor

WHAT DREAMS DO YOU HAVE
THAT ARE WORTH KEEPING ALIVE?
I'LL TELL YOU WHAT MY DREAM IS . . .
I HAVE A DREAM . . .
THAT MY PEOPLE WILL FORSAKE THEIR HIDEOUTS
AND GO BACK OUT TO THE STREETS WHERE THE "REAL" PEOPLE ARE
AND LOVE THEM

IT HAPPENS SO FAST
YOU BECOME A CHRISTIAN WITH A DREAM OF HELPING PEOPLE
BUT YOU BECOME TOO COMFORTABLE
IN THE BUILDINGS OF MEDIOCRITY
THEY MAKE YOU VERY COMFORTABLE THERE
AND THEY TREAT YOU NICELY AND THEY TAKE YOUR MONEY
AND ALL YOUR PASSION AND LEAVE YOU WITH NOTHING
BUT A FULL SCHEDULE ON SUNDAY MORNING

I HAVE A DREAM . . .
OF MY PEOPLE REMEMBERING THEIR TRUE MISSION IN THIS LIFE
AND GOING BACK OUT ON THE STREETS TO LOVE THE PEOPLE
WHAT WILL IT TAKE TO EMBRACE MY DREAM?
IT WILL COST YOU ALL YOUR PRIDE
THAT IS ALL
FIGHT THE FIGHT
AND REMOVE YOURSELVES FROM THE BUILDINGS
THAT SEDUCE YOU WITH
THEIR CLASSES AND PROGRAMS AND SOCIALS
AND FOOD AND ESPRESSO
FORSAKE THEM
GO BACK TO THE "GLORY ROAD"
I WILL BE WITH YOU
I WILL

I HAVE A DREAM . . .
DO YOU WANT TO MAKE IT YOUR DREAM, TOO?
ASK ME
TO PLANT WITHIN YOU AN UNQUENCHABLE DESIRE
TO LOVE THE PEOPLE OUTSIDE OF THE CHURCH BUILDINGS
IT IS MY DESIRE FOR YOU
IT IS MY DREAM FOR YOU
COME
YOU WILL NEVER REGRET IT
NEVER

FREE
FOREVER FREE

"Cause I’m as free as a bird now
and this bird you cannot change”
"Free Bird" - Lynyrd Skynrd

AND MY PEOPLE SHALL BE FREE
THEY SHALL BE FREE TO OBEY ME WHATEVER
I COMMAND THEM TO DO
FOR I SPEAK AND ALL MUST OBEY
MY PEOPLE, I WILL SEND OUT IN POWER AND LIGHT
AND MANY WILL TURN FROM THE LIGHT
AND SEEK TO STOP THE POWER
BUT NOTHING WILL STOP MY PEOPLE
I GIVE THEM THE FREEDOM TO DO AS I SAY
AND NO ONE CAN TAKE THAT FREEDOM FROM THEM
EVEN THIS WEEK, I SPOKE TO MY SERVANT A MISSION TO COME
THERE WOULD SURELY BE OPPOSITION
BUT I SHOWED HER A SIMPLE SYMBOL OF THE AMERICAN FLAG
AND SPOKE TO HER OF HER FREEDOM TO DO ALL THAT I SAY
IGNORE THE PEOPLE
AND
WALK THE WALK
AND
TALK THE TALK
AND
GO OUT IN POWER
GREAT, GREAT, GREAT
CONSUMING POWER
MY PEOPLE WILL NOT COMPROMISE
AND THEY WILL NOT STOP AT OPPOSITION
AND THEY WILL NOT CHANGE TO MEET THE EXPECTATIONS
OF THOSE WHO HARASS THEM

STAND TALL, PEOPLE
STAND VERY TALL
FOR I HAVE SET YOU FREE UNTO YOUR CALLING
AND IF I SPEAK A MISSION TO YOU
DO IT IN PERFECT FREEDOM
KNOWING THAT I STAND WITH YOU IN POWER
AND WHAT I PURPOSED WILL SURELY BE ACCOMPLISHED
AMEN!

MICHAEL JACKSON - PART I
CHILDHOOD LOST . . . AND FOUND!

"Have you seen my childhood?
I’m searching for the world that I come from
‘cause I’ve been looking around
in lost and found of my heart
No one understands me . . .
People say I’m not OK
‘cause I love such elementary things
It’s been my fate to compensate
for the childhood I’ve never known

Have you seen my childhood?
I’m searching for that wonder in my youth
like pirates in adventurous dreams . . .
Before you judge me
Try hard to love me
Look within your heart then ask
have you seen my childhood?”
Michael Jackson History On Film - Volume II

YES, SON, I HAVE SEEN YOUR CHILDHOOD
YES, SON, I EVEN KNOW WHERE IT LIES
FOR YOU SEE
YOU LOST IT IN MANY WAYS WHEN YOU WERE JUST THREE
I CAN LOOK INTO YOUR EYES AND STILL SEE
THAT LITTLE BOY OF THREE
WHEN LOVE WAS STILL NURTURING AND TIME WAS YOURS
AND YOURS, ALONE
BUT ALL THAT CHANGED SO VERY QUICKLY
AND OFF TO WORK YOU WENT
SO VERY QUICKLY
WHERE DID YOUR CHILDHOOD GO?
IS IT GONE FOREVER?
IT WENT TO A RESTING PLACE IN YOUR HEART, YOUNG ONE
AND IT WILL ALWAYS BE THERE
JUST THINK, SON, MANY HAVE LIVED THROUGH THEIR CHILDHOOD
NEVER TO RETURN
BUT YOURS IS BUNDLED UP AND SAVED IN YOUR HEART
AND IN YOUR DREAMS
HOW FAR AWAY ARE DREAMS FROM REALITY?
NOT VERY FAR, MY YOUNG FRIEND
LOOK INTO MY EYES, THE BEST THAT YOU CAN
AND KNOW THAT I AM THE CHILD WITHIN YOU
THAT WANTS EXPRESSION
YOU HAVE TRIED SO HARD TO GO BACK TO THE YEARS
WHICH YOU MISSED
WHEN LIFE WAS SIMPLE AND LOVE WAS FULL
BUT I CAN TAKE YOU BACK THERE EVERY DAY OF YOUR LIFE
I CAN TAKE YOU BACK THERE IN YOUR DREAMS
AND GIVE YOU DREAMS WHERE WE ARE FATHER AND SON
AND ALL IS WELL
AND ALL IS LOVE

COME, SON
COME DREAM WITH ME AND LET'S FIND THAT
WONDERFUL CHILDHOOD SO LOST
IT IS NOT TRULY LOST
YOU JUST NEED TO KNOW HOW TO GET THERE
AND RESIDE THERE
WHICH BRINGS US TO . . .

MICHAEL JACKSON - PART II
YOU ARE NOT ALONE

MAY I SING A SONG TO YOU?

"You are not alone
I am here with you
Though you’re far away
I am here to stay
You are not alone
I am here with you
Though you’re far apart
You are always in my heart
You are not alone

Just the other night
I thought I heard you cry
Asking me to come and hold you in my arms
I can hear your prayers
Your burdens I will bear
But first I need your hand
then forever can begin”

MAY I CHISEL THIS INTO YOUR HEART?

YOU ARE NOT ALONE
I LOVE YOU
YOU ARE MINE
I LOVE YOU
OH HOW I LOVE YOU
I LOVE YOU
YOU ARE NOT ALONE


TAKE HOLD OF MY HAND, YOUNG ONE
I WILL SHOW YOU LOVE, EVERLASTING LOVE
YOU ARE NOT ALONE, FRIEND
I AM HERE WITH YOU
DON'T BE FAR AWAY
COME WITH ME IN YOUR HEART AND STAY
I LOVE YOU, SON
I DO

"Just reach out to me in the morning
in the evening
You are not alone
You and me . . .
together
together”
Michael Jackson History On Film - Volume II

LOVE YOU, LITTLE ONE
BE MY CHILD
COME AND LET ME HOLD YOU AND LOVE YOU
I WANT TO
I DO

YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER

MY PRAYER
LOVE THE CHILDREN


"Let them in, Peter
for they are very tired . . .
and light those fires
Let them wake whole again to brand new dawns
fired by the sun
nor war-times bloody guns
May their peace be deep”
"Prayer to Saint Peter" - Edwin McCain

YES, MAY THEIR PEACE BE DEEP
I SPEAK OF THE CHILDREN OF THIS WORLD
THAT WILL NOT MAKE IT THROUGH ONE MORE DAY
THEY ARE TIRED AND SO VERY HUNGRY
THEY ARE IN THE MIDST OF WARS AND DROUGHT AND PERSECUTION
AND THEY ARE ONLY CHILDREN
LET THEM IN . . . AND MAY THEIR PEACE BE DEEP

DO YOU SEE WHAT KIND OF WORLD YOU HAVE CREATED
BY YOUR NEGLECT AND HATRED AND DECEPTION AND GREED?
AND IT IS SO OFTEN THE INNOCENT WHO SUFFER
SOMETIMES THE LITTLE CHILDREN WILL ONLY EXPERIENCE PEACE
WHEN LIFE ENDS
HOW SAD . . .
FOR YOU HAVE THE MONEY
YOU HAVE THE RESOURCES
YOU HAVE EVERYTHING THAT IT TAKES
TO MAKE THINGS BETTER FOR THE CHILDREN
BUT YOU GLANCE THROUGH YOUR INTERNET SHOPPING SITES
AND BUY AND BUY AND BUY
FOR THE ALREADY OVER INDULGENT CHILDREN
AND YOURSELVES
SPREAD THE WEALTH AROUND
TEACH YOUR CHILDREN TO GIVE TO OTHER CHILDREN
TEACH YOUR CHILDREN TO LOVE BY LOVING
LOVE THE CHILDREN
SOME ONLY HAVE THIS DAY
GIVE THEM PEACE HERE ON EARTH
IT CAN HAPPEN
IT CAN START WITH YOU
IT MUST

SING TO ME
ONE MORE TIME WITH PASSION!

"You sang to me . . . oh how you sang to me!
And I live for how you make me feel
So I question all this being real
‘cause I’m not afraid to love
This day seems made for you and me

How I long to hear you sing
Beneath the clear blue skies . . .
And I promise you this time I’ll see it in your eyes . . .
I feel it when you sing to me
Just to think that you live inside of me
I had no idea how this could be
Now, I’m crazy for your love
The words you sang, you sang for me
You sang to me . . . oh how you sang to me!”
"You Sang to Me" - Marc Anthony

GIVE IT UP, PEOPLE
GIVE UP THE "HAPPY" CONVENTION TYPE SONGS
GIVE UP THE SONGS OF MUNDANE WORDS
GIVE UP THE SONGS WHICH BRING FORTH
THE CLAPS AND THE JUMPS
WOULD YOU SING THESE TO YOUR SPOUSE
ON YOUR WEDDING NIGHT?
HARDLY
WELL . . . I WANT TO BE SUNG TO AS A LOVER
AS A CLOSE FRIEND
AS ONE FOR WHICH YOU ARE SMITTEN WITH
I TOLERATE THE OTHER SONGS FOR I KNOW HOW YOU THINK
THEY MAKE THE CONGREGATION HAPPY
HAPPY ENOUGH TO PUT MONEY IN THE PASSING PLATE
AND RETURN THE NEXT WEEK
BUT I LONG FOR LOVE SONGS
DO YOU KNOW HOW IT MUST FEEL TO HAVE SOMEONE
SING OVER AND OVER,
"YOU ARE GOD?"
WHAT DO I DO WITH THAT?
YES, I AM GOD, BUT IT DOESN'T TURN MY HEART TOWARD YOU
IN A PASSIONATE EMBRACE TO HEAR THOSE WORDS
THINK OF WHAT YOU ARE SINGING
DOES IT EVEN MAKE SENSE?
WOULD YOU WANT IT SUNG TO YOU?
THINK OF LOVE
AND SING FROM YOUR HEART
WE CAN HAVE AN AFFAIR OF THE HEART
IT'S ALL UP TO YOU
SING TO ME
SING TO ME LOVE SONGS
SING TO ME WITH PASSION
AND YOU WILL FEEL MY LOVE IN A NEW WAY

HOW COULD I EVER HOLD BACK MY LOVE FROM ONE
WHO LOVES ME SO?
COME ON,
SING


A RIDDLE AT LAST:

There was once a young girl who would come to her Father
often and lay her head upon his chest and only ask
that she be loved and that he would receive her love.
  The Father, quite smitten with the child,
would offer the child gift upon gift,
even the promise of fame and fortune, but she insisted
that all the extra “stuff” would not interest her.
  One day the father came home with a small gift.
  He told the daughter to come to him and he held
out his hands, knowing that this time she would not refuse
the gift, even though, she spoke so vehemently against
all the other gifts.
This gift was different; however, for it was something
that the Father and daughter could do together
away from the Father’s work.
The outside card on the gift simply said,
“ALOHA, CHILD, ALOHA”
Will the Father and the child return?
