Cancelling (lyrics)

Many times you’ve lied.
You’ve made people cry.
You don’t sacrifice.
You know that they died…

Because of you
I will start cancelling you.
Because of you
Don’t you see? Leave this society!

You feel so fabulous.
You want us to love you.
So that we’ll blindly follow.
Heroes only bring terror.

Because of you
I will start cancelling you.
Because of you
Don’t you see? Leave this society!

I’ve seen who you are.
I’ve seen how scared you are.
You are only big when you’ve got people who love you.

I will start cancelling you.
I will start cancelling you.

LET’S GIVE ALL WE HAVE (song performance)

I wrote this song in August 1994 when I was 15 years old.
The performance in the video was filmed on 9 April 2018 (39 years old now! OMG! Time goes too fast!).
I guess I felt the need to revisit my teen years and remember the dreams I had back then.
Some dreams, some wishes, some feelings are timeless, no matter how old we become.
By the way, I’m not an experienced xylophone player, so I keep the composition simple. I’m not that talented.
Audio quality is not great either, but this recording is all I have right now.

Love,

Ryan

Let’s give all we have (lyrics)

I’m tired of sharing fun with myself.
It’s never been my wish, like today.
I’ve always been happy, as you see.
It could have been better together.

And I know that’s the way you think too.
Together we’ll take it much further.

Let’s give all we have.
What’s inside of you?
Whatever it is,
I’m gonna treat you right.

Tell me why you need me as a friend.
Know the reason yourself why it’s me.
‘Cause whatever we have, has value.
Don’t break down the road in front of us.

And I know that’s the way you think too.
Together we’ll take it much further.

Let’s give all we have.
What’s inside of you?
Whatever it is,
I’m gonna treat you right.

But life is not a fairy tale.
Try to survive my bad moods.
Don’t run away too.

And I know that’s the way you think too.
Together we’ll take it much further.

Let’s give all we have.
What’s inside of you?
Whatever it is,
I’m gonna treat you right.

Let’s give all we have.
What’s inside of you?
Whatever it is,
I’m gonna treat you right.

Let’s give all we have!
Tell me!
What’s inside of you?
Tell me!
Aha
What’s inside of you?
