Songs by Roy Williams

Imagination is Everything

Imagination is Everything
(Tribute to Roland Orzabal)

Imagination is Everything

(V1)
I'm lost in my obsession
I love my ever-present
Smartphone like Aladdin's lamp
Swipe and tap and watch your wishes happen

(V2)
Think I understand what consumer fate is
Make me wanna grab all the latest greatest
Sell me in thirty second ads
Tell me what I want what I need and gotta have

(CH)
Ooo There's a quiet place deep inside of us
Ooo We can have anything we want because
Imagination is Everything

(V3)
My work's enough to kill me
My worth's in doubt so bill me
Plastic it's the modern cash
Instant money in the land of milk and honey

(V4)
I grew up on greed and gratification
Never had a need for meditation
Spirit the forgotten power
Lost in streaming mega-data dreaming

(CH)
Ooo There's a quiet place deep inside of us
Ooo We can have anything we want because
Imagination is Everything
Imagination is Everything

(BR)
A scarlet thread lies hidden deep inside a book
It seems the best part is the one we overlook
Exception or Example shining through the moral haze
The silver lining in these flesh and bloody days

Imagination is Everything
Imagination is Everything

(CH - var.)
A place deep inside of us
Anything we want because
A place deep inside of us

(1/2 - CH)
Ooo There's a quiet place deep inside of us
Ooo We can have anything

(1/2 - CH)
Ooo There's a quiet place deep inside of us
Ooo We can have "Anything"

Imagination
(I'm so used to being told what to do)
is Everything
(Why do my senses seem to hide the truth)
Imagination
(I'm so numb from being told what to do)
is Everything
(How would I feel if what I want came true)
Imagination
(I'm so tired of being told what to do)
is Everything
(I dream a better world for me and you)

Toys

TOYS
(©2017, Roy Williams; Karen Gregory)

When I was a kid I had a ball
I had more stuff than I could use from the time I could crawl
I'd see the newest Toys on TV and boy I wanted them all

Teddy bears checker boards puzzles and dice
Multi-coloured cubes spinning wheels flying kites
If it whistled beeped or buzzed or even better came with lights

CHORUS
Toys come in every shape and size Toys what I've come to realize
If you're young if you're old if you're big if you're small it doesn't matter at all
Everybody loves Toys

When I was a teen I loved to play
I could hit and run and throw and catch and kick every day
If I woke up and it was raining Plan B was video games

Got a job bought a car I could call mine
Learned to play guitar practiced hard every night
All my buddies dug our band but even better girls liked us

CHORUS
Toys come in every shape and size Toys what I've come to realize
If you're young if you're old if you're big if you're small it doesn't matter at all
Everybody loves Toys Toys Toys Toys Toys (make some noise!)

We all need to play I mean everyone
I think it's safe to say there's no such thing as too much fun

CHORUS

Now I'm all grown up I know what I need
I want more fun fly or ride float or ski
It might cost more but it's worth it to me

CHORUS

Toys provide an education Toys an endless fascination
If they ever fall apart you gotta fix or replace them

CHORUS

Everybody loves Toys
Everybody loves Toys Toys Toys
Everybody loves Toys
Toys!
