Faith By Ted Lehman © Copyright 2012 APR Music Publishing LLC (Am-D)[Am-G-F-Am-G][Am-G-Am-G-Am-D-Am-D] (Am-D) Can anyone hear what I’m sayin’ I wonder if God hears me prayin’ I was doin’ my best when y’all up and left Now I’m stuck in this game that you’re playin’ I tried to be a good brother A good father, good son, and good friend In my life I tried to do what was right I would do it all over again I have always been kind and fair minded To treat others like I’d like to be To live by the code and take the hard road Good things don’t come easy to me When push comes to shove I shared all my love now I know that I have been cheated It is no surprise it turned out to be lies I will not be defeated if God hears me prayin’ does he get what I’m sayin’ does he know that my heart has been breakin’ these times have been rough, I can't ask it enough put an end to these dues I've been payin' will my life turn out right in the end can I forgive what I cannot defend I try to do right and pray every night to do like my daddy said You gotta’ have faith it's the only way out You gotta’ have faith to stand up and shout You gotta’ have faith You gotta’ have faith For Female singers Verse 2… I tried to be a good sister A good mother, good child, and good friend In my life I tried to do what was right I would do it all over again

Little Man By Ted Lehman (ASCAP) © Copyright 2013 APR MUSIC PUBLISHING LLC Verse[A-G] Chorus [F-G-C-Am]-D Bridge[C-G]-Am Once I knew a little man who always had to win he was a very petty man who owned none of his sins Once I knew a little man who cheated on his wife didn't work, slept till noon he had an easy life Once I knew a little man everything about him was fake he used every one he knew in it for all he could take Once I knew a little man the truth he wouldn't say had no guts to speak his mind to justify his game He thought he had all the answers in this life, you get what you give not the destination, but the journey it's about the way that you live Little Little Man What's it like to be so arrogant What's it like to be so vain Does it make you feel like a Big Man when you call me nasty names Little Little Man Little Little Man

Waiting By Ted Lehman Copyright 1980-2000 [Amaj7-Esus7][Bm-Amaj7] Lonely weekday mornings As summer turns to fall I'm just sitting here Waitin' for someone to call I need something to do Because the days just fade away They fade away in uselessness Someone please call me today I'm waitin' to hear from you I'm waitin' to hear from you That I can be a part of you And we can begin together Realizing our dreams There's so much we can do I wish I knew my fate I'm tired of people telling me That I arrived to late My life is just a dream And dreams don't often come true. I know that I would feel better I'm waitin' to hear from you Copyright 2000 by Ted Lehman All rights reserved, duplication and distribution without permission is prohibited.

They Tell Me You Cried By Ted Lehman (ASCAP) Copyright © 1980-2011 The last winter chill has gone down to my bone I can't help feeling guilt can't help feeling alone you've wilted my roses for real or for not you've written in verses I saw it for what They tell me you cried Believe me I know tears came from my eyes asking myself why it must be we both lied just know that we both cried here I sit the heal when I know that is wrong that's what I feel we waited too long now it is done in who's eyes mistreated do you feel like you won I just feel defeated where did it start take pennies to lend it's not in my heart to try it again I am what I am I'm not sorry for that we just don't get along I am sorry for that

YOU Music By Mark Hewer Words By Ted Lehman (ASCAP) © Copyright 2013 Mark Hewer and Ted Lehman, APR Music Publishing LLC, (ASCAP) If I could do it all again I'd take back everything I said I'd take you back into my bed stop your eyes from seeing red in the dead of night completely out of sight you know it wasn't right that we had to fight I thought I'd had enough Our life was getting rough I wish you hadn't called my bluff when I started acting tough I don't want us to be thru I don't like feeling blue this time I will be true cause all I want is you Please will you come home I don't like being here alone from the nest where you have flown I'm lonely right down to the bone I don't want us to be thru I don't like feeling blue this time I will be true cause all I want is you
