HOW THINGS WERE

Written by:  Amy, Celeste , Danielle,  Belinda,  Josie, Jess, Lachlan and Morrin

Facilitated by Eva Popov, and Justin Brady 

Supported by Satellite Foundation

All these things changed since that time this morning

And I’m sitting here wishing it was you that was calling me

And that things were how they used to be.

I can’t change these hurtful memories

I’m losing control and there is no hope for me

Gone for now, is that’s how it has to be..

And when I’m saying a prayer at the very last light

I’ll hold hope in my heart

It’ll all be alright

 

CHORUS

 How things were

 How things were

 Fighting for the future

Turning things around

Once you were lost but now you’re found

How things were

 

You kept running you never gave up

You kept fighting till it was enough

Now you see, that’s not how it has to be

And when the sun came up

The very next day

You had come back and it was ok

 

CHORUS

How things were

How things were

Fighting for the future

Turning things around

Once you were lost but now you’re found

How things were

 

Even when you’re in your darkest days

Don’t let go, don’t fade away

Even when you think life’s too tough,

Love’s enough.

Just remember….

Just remember….

CHORUS

How things were

How things were

Fighting for the future

Turning things around

Once you were lost but now you’re found

How things were.

 

WATCH ME DANCE

Created by Ellery, Henry, Celeste, Belinda, Danielle, Jess and Josie

Facilitated by Charles Jenkins

Supported By: Satellite Foundation

Without love there are mountains

People watching

What can they see in me?

A broken dancer

Coming home

Within me dancing is my passion

At last there is peace

Sometimes I feel lost

But then I feel like

Dancing brilliantly

CHORUS

So watch me dance

So watch me dance

So watch me dance

Brilliantly

Right now I’m scared

Yesterday’s echoes

Spin inside my head

But I know

Dancing will set me free

CHORUS

So watch me dance

So watch me dance

So watch me dance

Brilliantly

 

I’LL NEVER LET YOU GO

Written by: Antonia, James, Taylah, Paige, Tahnee, Caitlin, Brendonn, Jaimee & Desi

Facilitated by: Eva Popov and Justin Brady

Supported by: Southern health Young Carers (Samme Mills) and Satellite Foundation (Verena, Rose and Rob)

If you knew what I knew

If you felt what I felt

You would understand

You think you are nothing

But you are my everything

I’ll lend you my hand

CHORUS

Dot to dot 

Through the twists and turns

Don’t know where were headed

But I’ll never let you go

Brick by brick

We go over the wall

We don’t know the way

But we’ll try not to fall

Everyone shouts, can’t hear myself think

Dive into the water

Life is a struggle

We won’t sink

World of unknown

A world of our own

CHORUS

Dot to dot 

Through the twists and turns

Don’t know where were headed

But I’ll never let you go

Brick by brick

We go over the wall

We don’t know the way

But we’ll try not to fall

 

ANGELS AND DEMONS

Written By: Seth, Johnothon, Aiden, Liam, Ethan, Eva, Sharni, and Misha

Facilitated by Eva Popov, Justin Brady, 

Supported by Samme Mills Alfred Health, Suzanne Heppell PGPN and Verena Ross and Rose Cuff, Satellite Foundation

My friends and family have locked me out

Everyone is begging for sunlight

The demons have shut it out

We can surf through them if we try

We have freedom to choose

We have freedom to choose

CHORUS

Caring for each other puts us at peace

We come together to celebrate

The champions are our angels

United we shall win

Demons are taking us one by one

Everytime we break free

Angles are here to reflect their light

Shining through the real me

If we believe we’ll succeed

If we believe we’ll succeed

If we believe we’ll succeed

If we believe we’ll succeed

We have the freedom to choose

CHORUS

Caring for each other puts us at peace

We come together to celebrate

The champions are our angels

United we shall win

The champions are our angels

United we shall win.
