Songs by Pat Reid

Come Into My Life

"COME INTO MY LIFE"

Words and Music by Pat Reid ©2006 PGAMusicProductions/SOCAN/CMRRA/SoundExchange.


VERSE 1

WHEN YOU’RE FEELIN' SAD AND LONELY

AND YOU DON’T KNOW WHERE TO TURN

TURN TOWARD THE ONE AND ONLY

WHO WILL NEVER LET YOU DOWN


VERSE 2

WHEN THOSE FRIENDS YOU USED TO TRESURE

TURN THEIR BACK N’ WALK AWAY

AND WHEN NEGATIVES SURROUND YOU

THIS IS WHAT YOU DO AND SAY

LIFT YOUR HEAD UP TO THE HEAVENS

GET DOWN ON YOUR KNEES AND PRAY

AND THOUGH YOU FEEL YOU’RE JUST NOT WORTHY

THIS IS WHAT YOU DO AND SAY


CHORUS

COME INTO MY LIFE

COME INTO MY LIFE

COME INTO MY LIFE, LORD JESUS

COME IN TODAY

COME IN TO STAY

COME INTO MY LIFE LORD JESUS




VERSE 3

THEY ALL SAY YOU’LL NEVER MAKE IT

THEY ALL SAY YOU’LL NEVER LAST

BUT PRINCIPALITIES CAN FAKE IT

SAYIN’ HEAVEN’S IN THE PAST

BUT DON’T YOU LISTEN TO THEIR RUMOURS

TO THEIR TRICKERY AND GAME

‘CAUSE THE LIVE THEIR LIVES BY NUMBERS

BY WHAT MYSTICS DO AND SAY


CHORUS

BRIDGE

AND WHEN THESE DAYS HAVE PASSED

YOU WILL FEEL RENEWED

TAKE IT FROM ONE WHO HAS BEEN THERE, YEAH

WHO WAS LOST AND CONFUSED. OH, OH…

CHORUS

REPEAT AD-LIB/END

[Lyrics]


I'm Amazed

"I'm Amazed"

Words & Music by Pat Reid
PGAMusicProductions/SOCAN/CMRRA/SoundExchange. (c) 4/29/2010

I’m amazed
The way you grew from little girl To woman
And I’m amazed
The way you’ve changed from friend
To lover, I discover

Now I’m amazed
The way your body moves beside
me excites me
Baby I’m amazed
The little girl I knew, is you

VERSE 2

I remember
When you were just a girl
run around with them little bity curls
You never said much to me
You must have grown up secretly

BRIDGE 1

For suddenly, I realize
your friendly, willing, able and wise
CHORUS 1
Now I’m amazed
The way your body moves beside me
And I’m amazed
What a couple years can do
Now I’m all hung up on you
each day
Baby I’m amazed
that the girl I grew to love is you

VERSE 3

You never were homecoming queen
You never even played that scene
All the girls I used to know
They always had so much to show

BRIDGE 2

But now I see the light of day
The only words that I can say


CHORUS 2

I’m amazed
The way your tender arms invites me
And I’m amazed
What a couple years can do
Now I’m all hung up on you
each day
Baby I’m amazed
that the girl I grew to love is you
The girl I love is you
The girl I grew to love, is you

[Lyrics]

PGAMusicProductions/SOCAN/CMRRA/SoundExchange

I’M JUST A SINNER
TRYIN’ NOT TO FALL
I GO’N DAY BY DAY
HEARING THE CALL
I’VE SEEN MY TROUBLES
BIG ONES AND SMALL

'CAUSE I’M JUST A SINNER YEAH,
A SINNER, THAT’S ALL

I BARE HIS BURDENS
HIS SUFERIN' AND PAIN,
YES I HAVE
I HEAR HIS GENTLE VOICE,
THROUGH WINTER OR RAIN
BUT NO MATTER WHERE I GO,
HE COMFORTS MY SOUL,
YES HE DOES

‘CAUSE I’M JUST
A SINNER, A SINNER,
SINNER THAT’S ALL

HE IS MY SOLID ROCK
WHO I DEPEND ON,
YES I DO
HE ALWAYS LIFT ME UP
'N MAKES ME FEEL STRONG
I’LL ALWAYS TURN TO HIM,
WHEN I’M FULL OF DOUBT
HE IS MY COMFORT, MY JOY AND MY LORD,
THERE IS NO DOUBT

I'M JUST A SINNER
TRYIN' NOT TO FALL
I GO'N DAY BY DAY,
HEARING THE CALL
I'VE SEEN MY TROUBLES,
YES I HAVE
BIG ONES AND SMALL

I'M JUST A SINNER, SINNER, SINNER THAT'S ALL

I REMEMBER.
YES AH DO
WHEN I COULD NOT FIND A FRIEND
I CALLED OUT TO LORD
SAID,
LET THIS SINNER IN
HE OPENED HIS HEART
AND COMFORT MY SOUL,
YES HE HAS
NOW I SING HIS PRAISE
LET HIS STORY BE TOLD

I'M JUST A SINNER,
TRYIN' NOT TO FALL
AH GO'N DAY BY DAY
HEARING THE CALL
I'VE SEEN MY TROUBLES,
BIG ONES AND SMALL,
YES I HAVE

I'M JUST A SINNER,
SINNER, SINNER THAT'S ALL
YES I AM

I'M JUST A SINNER,
A SINNER, A SINNER THAT'S ALL
YES I AM, YES I AM
A SINNER,

I'M JUST A SINNER, A SINNER THAT'S ALL
OH YEAH

I'M JUST A SINNER,
A SINNER, A SINNER
THAT'S ALL

Should Have Never Let Her Go

"Should Have Never Let Her Go"

Words & Music by Pat Reid (c)2018
PGAMusicProductions/SOCAN/CMRRA/SoundExchange.


What was I thinking
When she came to say goodbye that night,
She came to tell me
She’d fly away come morning light

I should have noticed
The tears she held so deep inside
I should have known, should have known

How could I let her
Slip away from my arms that night
I should have followed
‘N never let her far from my sight
I should have known
She’d become the apple of my eye
I should have known, should have known

Chorus

I should have never, Never let her slip away
From these lonely arms of mine
Now It's my turn to cry

I should have followed
N’ cast away my silly pride
Now I long for her gentle touch,
Her silly smile, I miss so much
If I could hold her for a little while
I ‘d never, never,
Never let her
go

Bridge

Now I constantly relive that night
Long to reach n’ hold her tight
Ah hope she found some happiness
Her love was pure I must confess

If I could turn back the hands of time
I’d do my best to make her mine
So many years have passed us by
Now it's my turn to cry
Ah, I d never, never
Never, let her go

Solo


I should have never, Never let her slip away
From these lonely arms of mine
Now It's my turn to cry

I should have followed
N’ cast away my silly pride
Now I long for her gentle touch,
Her silly smile, I miss so much

If I could hold her for a little while
I ‘d never, never,
Never let her
go

Biography:



Pat began singing at the early age of 15 in the Caribbean Island of Trinidad where he formed a trio called the Canaries. The three friends went on to win an Island-wide televised contest called "Scouting for Talent." The group performed at various charitable venues as the boys were too young to perform in clubs.

Returning to his native Jamaica, Pat joined the Jaywalkers, a six piece R&B/Rock Steady/Reggae band that enjoyed much popularity with the local islanders.

Migrating to Toronto in the late 1960's, Pat played with various R&B groups such as The Experiments, New Directions, Toronto Revival and The PG Reid Band. Appearing at venues in and around the Toronto area, University campuses, and covering numerous road tours in South Western Ontario; Northwestern Ontario; the East Coast including Newfoundland, he continued honing his music craft.

Pat has performed with some of the top musicians from the Toronto area. His vocal training began at Toronto's Royal Conservatory of Music at the University of Toronto. He also attended Humber College's Jazz Program for a short while as a Voice Major. He holds a degree in Psychology from York University in Toronto.

His debut album “Come Into My Life”(c)2006 was nominated for Traditional Gospel Album of the Year at the 2006 'Gospel Music Covenant Awards (GMA)' in Calgary Canada; and songs: "Lord of Lords, King of Kings" and the title track "Come Into My Life" were nominated for Traditional Gospel Song of The Year.

Pat presently composes and records in his home-studio with piano and does all midi programming as well as all accompanying back-up vocals. He is currently writing and recording several songs simultaneously. He writes in the Country/Americana/Gospel/Reggae/Pop/R&B/Jazz genre.
