You called me ...

Posted on December 20, 2010 at 6:06 PM


Heart of my heart

You called me

From within

And from afar

I’ve felt your pulse

Within me

And around me

For lifetimes

And I knew

In the quiet of my soul

That I would always find you again

One day.


So I travelled through time

From star to star

World to world

Through joy and sorrow

Until the song of your heart

Called me home

To Africa

Where I found you.


And now as we dance under a moonlit sky

Next to water that constantly ebbs and flows


I submit to the rhythm of your heartbeat


Blending with your every move


Following your every lead

And you realise that

You are no longer holding stardust.


You’ve transformed me into your angel

And together

Our footsteps lead us

Into a passionate paradise of divine bliss

Where the sacred energy

Surges from you in all your glory

Manifesting its strength,grace and beauty

As it unites with the peace

Deep inside my soul

As finally

According to the destiny we share

We are one.

Your Love's Waterfall

Posted on December 1, 2010 at 11:14 PM
‎Unleash your love
Let it cascade like a waterfall
And flood across my world...
Only you have
What it takes to quench my soul's thirst
And I splash
In the all embracing pleasure of your water.

Pippa McHale 2 December 2010


When you ...

Posted on October 26, 2010 at 7:38 AM

When you ...

 

When you hold me in your arms

The stars in the dark night sky

Collide

And time becomes meaningless

 

When you kiss me

Passion’s flame deep within me

Ignites

And my soul melts into your heartbeat

 

There is so much more

I would like to say to you

Yet it is best heard

And received

And expressed without words

In the silence

Shared

When you look into my eyes.

Out of the wasteland

Posted on October 23, 2010 at 2:48 AM


Out of the wasteland and ashes of life


Hope rises


Fragile and pure


Firm in her faith 


To celebrate the spring of Love.    by Pippa McHale 23 October 2010


Watch Out! - Lyrics

Posted on February 17, 2010 at 11:39 AM

The dance floor tonight is almost full

With strutting kings and sugar-sweet queens

I feel your pair of pretty eyes

Just checking out my jeans.

 

Watch out watch out I’m looking at you

Shall I move closer to you?

Watch out watch out I’m wanting to

Move my body much closer to you

 

Hey you girl are you listening

To this song from the beginning

As I stand here grooving and singing

About others dreams and them winning?

 

Watch out watch out I’m looking to

Make my move closer to you

Watch out watch out I’m intending to

Move my body much closer to you

 

There’s some things that you must know

But I’ll tell you all after the show

So take my number and I’ll take yours

I’ll call you later to talk some more

 

Watch out watch out I’m calling you

Making my move closer to you

Watch out watch out I’m wanting to

Move my body much closer to you

 

So listen up girl if you want it all

Slip out of your mama’s back door

Come and join me on the dance floor

Where we can move our bodies and groove some more

 

Watch out watch out I’m coming through

Making my move closer to you

Watch out watch out I’m going to

Move my body much closer to you

 

Hey you girl this is me

Simply trying the best to be

So move your body closer to me

Cos I am here to set you free

 

So don’t ya fear and don’t ya fret

A single kiss will settle the debt

I am so glad that we have met

And moved and grooved in secret

 

Watch out watch out I’ve come through

Made my move closer to you

Watch out watch out I’ve come through

And found my dream – hey girl that’s you.

Heartbreak Angel - Lyrics

Posted on February 17, 2010 at 11:36 AM

Girl, hide away your halo

Go fold away your wings

You’re my heartbreak angel

You were my every thing

You burned my soul with your eyes

You were my angel, a mere disguise

And I believed all your lies

But now it’s time to say goodbye

 

(chorus)

Breaking up is never easy

Letting go really stings

Girl, hide away your halo

Go fold away your wings

Walking away is never easy

Saying goodbye really stings

You’re my heartbreak angel

You were my every thing

 

You lied to make me happy

You’re nothing but a tainted charm

Your false smiles and loving feelings

Brought me cruel emotional harm

I’m not afraid of loneliness

Cos your love was never true, not true

And I will make it all alone

Living my life without you.

 

(chorus)

Breaking up is never easy

Letting go really stings

Girl, hide away your halo

Go fold away your wings

Walking away is never easy

Saying goodbye really stings

You’re my heartbreak angel

You were my every thing

 

 

Girl, we started way too fast

And now we’ve ended suddenly too

But I’ll make it through the day

Even though you walked away

I’ll remember where we went

Cherish the moments that we spent

My only regret is simply that

I fell in love with you, oh yeah

Girl, I fell in love with you.

 

(Chorus)

Breaking up is never easy

Letting go really stings

Girl, hide away your halo

Go fold away your wings

Walking away is never easy

Saying goodbye really stings

You’re my heartbreak angel

You were my every thing

You’re my heartbreak angel, my every thing

My heartbreak angel, my every thing, oh yeah.

Listen Up - Lyrics

Listen up, listen up

This is my dream

I need you beside me

If you know what I mean

I wanna make it big

I wanna sing out loud

I can’t do it without you

And I wanna make you proud

So please just promise me

Not to walk ahead of me

Not to walk behind me

Oh no

Rather promise to walk beside me

And guide me through.

 

Hey World out there this is me

Trying to be the best that I can be

So don’t you fret and don’t you fear

Just listen up, listen up I’m getting near

Climbing up and up reaching the top

Singing is my passion and I won’t stop.

 

Listen up, listen up

I can’t do it without you

And I wanna make you proud

So please just promise me

Not to walk ahead of me

Not to walk behind me

Oh no

Rather promise to walk beside me

And guide me through

 

Hey world out there this is me

Trying to be the best that I can be

Singing new songs living my dream

Movin up if you know what I mean

 

So listen up, listen up I’m going to

Make my music inspire all of you

I will go as far as it takes to make this real

I will go as far as it takes to live my dream

I just wanna sing and celebrate life

With all its hope, love and strife

So please just promise me

Not to walk ahead of me

Not to walk behind me

Oh no

Rather promise to walk beside me

And guide me through.

 

Hey world out there this is me

Just being who I wanna be…

Cos you promised always to

Walk beside me and guide me through

So listen up, listen up, listen to me

Dreams do become reality

Dreams do become reality!

Living in Hope - Lyrics

Posted on February 17, 2010 at 11:29 AM

Inspired for a moment

I wrote you this song

Life without love is not living at all

And living in hope is the key to it all

Yeah, hope is the key to it all

 

Once in a lifetime someone comes along

Who lets you listen to a different song

Who challenges all that you believe

And makes you dream that you can achieve

Life without love is not living at all

And living in hope is the key to it all

Yeah,, hope is the key to it all

 

But you’re not alone

So look out for me

You’re not alone

Reach out for me

And just like me

You dream of who you wanna be

Go make your dreams reality.

 

Tomorrow holds promises as yet unspoken

And fate may change your life’s direction

But once in a lifetime someone comes along

Who makes you wanna sing a different song

Living without love is not living at all

And living in hope is the key to it all

Yeah, hope is the key to it all

 

But you’re not alone

So look out for me

You’re not alone

Reach out for me

And just like me

You dream of who you wanna be

Go make your dreams reality

 

Once in a lifetime you will get that chance

To sing your song and make others dance

And who you are will also inspire

Others much higher to aspire

Cos once in your lifetime someone came along

Who believed in you and wrote you this song

That life without love is not living at all

And living in hope is the key to it all

 

So dream of who you wanna be

And go make your dreams reality

Living in hope is the key to it all

Yeah, hope is the key to it all.

Playing with Fire - Lyrics

Posted on February 17, 2010 at 11:26 AM

Play with fire

Burn with desire

I can’t put out the flames that you inspire

Let’s play with fire

Burn with desire

Baby I wanna burn

Oh yeah

Baby I wanna burn

 

Girl you’ll never know what you did to me

I wish there’s a way that you could see

How you lit a spark

That ignited my heart

And set my soul on fire

You played with fire

I burned with desire

But we can’t put out flames that our bodies inspire

 

Just a smile to heat my passion

Just a kiss to heighten my thirst

Just a look

Just a touch

And my flames go wild, wild

Baby you make me burn

Oh yeah

Baby you make me burn

 

Girl you stole my good intentions

Removing my every apprehension

Making my passion

A slave of desire

Wanting to burn in your heat

Consumed by fire

Let’s play with fire

Let’s burn with desire

Let’s feed the flames that our bodies inspire

 

Just a smile to heat our passion

Just a kiss to heighten our thirst

Just a look

Just a touch

And our flames go wild, wild

Baby you make me burn

Oh yeah

Baby you make me burn

 

Girl you were the one who I desired

Girl you set my soul on fire

But you walked away

Letting our love expire

Letting loneliness return

Leaving heartache to burn

Oh yeah

Leaving heartache to burn

 

Girl you’ll never know what you did to me

I wish there’s a way that you could see

You can’t put out flames

Fuelled by love’s ecstasy

I played with fire

I burned with desire

I can’t extinguish the flames your love inspired.

Baby I’ve been burned

Oh yeah ,

Baby, I’ve been burned

Dare I Look? - Lyrics

Posted on February 7, 2010 at 12:55 PM

Dare I look in your eyes and see my destiny?

Dare I look in your eyes and see your soul?

Dare I look in your eyes ?

Dare I look?

This emotional rollercoaster ride is so unpredictable

With highs and lows at every turn

Yet it is you who anchors my inner strength

And guides me safely towards the future...

My silent hero, my friend above all.

 

Dare you look in my eyes and see your destiny?

Dare you look in my eyes and see my soul?

Dare you look in my eyes?

Dare you look?

Beyond the emotional rollercoaster lies our chance of happiness

With laughter and joy and inner peace

And maybe we will have that chance at togetherness

An opportunity to be one today and tomorrow...

My silent hero, my friend above all.

 

You pick up my broken heart and wounded spirit

You catch me easily before I fall

You help me find dreams in my shattered world

Your smile and encouragement heals it all.

My silent hero, my friend above all

My silent hero , my firend above all

Dare I look in your eyes and see my destiny?

Dare I look in your eyes and see your soul?

Dare I look in your eyes ?

Dare I look?
