I’m gonna tell you ‘bout the process of photosynthesis.</p><p>I’m a tall green plant sitting in the sun, absorbing nutrients and having fun! You may think it’s boring, you may think it’s lame, but I’m a plant and that’s my name. Now, how I got green that’s a story to tell. It’s my little friend called chlorophyll.</p> Wed, 13 Nov 2013 19:56:23 +0000 Lyrics by Paige & Vocals by Plant 46901 at http://wcbe.org Dick and Jane Song of the Week: "Photosynthesis" Dick and Jane Song of the Week: "No Me Gustan Pantalones" http://wcbe.org/post/dick-and-jane-song-week-no-me-gustan-pantalones <p>No Me Gustan Pantalones</p><p>--------------------------------------------------------------------------------</p><p>Rock</p><p>--------------------------------------------------------------------------------</p><p>LYRICS</p><p>We like shorts because we have great legs and we can’t do splits in our pants.

I think about the way we laughed and the smile on your face.</p> Mon, 28 Oct 2013 19:37:02 +0000 Molly & Ian & Shy 46899 at http://wcbe.org Dick and Jane Song of The Week: "Beauty and the Black Sky" Dick and Jane Song of the Week: "I Love You Too" http://wcbe.org/post/dick-and-jane-song-week-i-love-you-too <p>I Love You Too</p><p>--------------------------------------------------------------------------------</p><p>Swing</p><p>--------------------------------------------------------------------------------</p><p>LYRICS</p><p>He looks at her and she looks at him. She wonders where, where he’d been. He hopes her heart’s not taken. She hopes she won’t end up breaking again.</p><p>He takes her hand, and she can’t stand to think he’d ever leave her. He says the day he leaves is the day he stops to breathe. He never wants to see his baby cry.</p> Mon, 21 Oct 2013 19:20:09 +0000 Sarah K. 46898 at http://wcbe.org Dick and Jane Song of the Week: "I Love You Too" Dick and Jane Song of the Week: "Don't Tell Me" http://wcbe.org/post/dick-and-jane-song-week-dont-tell-me-0 <p>LYRICS</p><p>Just so you know, I cry myself to sleep from night to night. I fear the sunrise because I don’t want to face the world. I’m not what you think I am. I’m about to break. Now I let the night take me away.</p><p>No, don’t tell me that you just don’t care because you know that it will break me. Don’t tell me that you feel my pain when you never shed a tear. No, you don’t know what’s good for me. You’re not the thing I need. You’re never there for me.</p><p>Take me away. Now I’ll let the night take me away.</p> Mon, 14 Oct 2013 18:48:32 +0000 Music Intern & Olesya 46897 at http://wcbe.org Dick and Jane Song of the Week: "Don't Tell Me" Dick and Jane Song of the Week: "Soar Like a Bird" http://wcbe.org/post/dick-and-jane-song-week-soar-bird <p>LYRICS<br /><br />I spread my wings to fly, but all they do is die. My brother already soars, yet I’m behind closed doors.I look up into the sky. Everything seems so high.<br /><br />But if you don’t quit. It’s your goal you’ll get. But if you don’t quit<br /><br />Just like a baby bird who’s falling, your life it might be stalling. The bird will soon succeed. Just follow its lead. But if you don’t quit.<br /> Sun, 13 Oct 2013 19:29:01 +0000 Madjo D & Casey N & & Sarah R 37379 at http://wcbe.org Dick and Jane Song of the Week: "Soar Like a Bird" Dick and Jane Song of the Week: "Meant To Be" http://wcbe.org/post/dick-and-jane-song-week-meant-be-0 <p>LYRICS</p><p>I’ve been hurt before. There are scars on my heart. I put all my faith in you, praying you wouldn’t tear me apart. You seemed different in every way. You never ever ran from me. You never played those stupid games. It was easy to fall for you.</p><p>I think you knew why I looked at you that way. I tried to hide and make it go away. I tried to stop and put on the brakes. But my heart wasn’t listening. You stopped my heart and I couldn’t breathe. And I was left wondering. Do you feel it too? Or is it just me? Or maybe you and I are meant to be.</p> Mon, 07 Oct 2013 18:33:58 +0000 Jamie Eubanks 46891 at http://wcbe.org Dick and Jane Song of the Week: "Meant To Be" Dick and Jane Song of the Week: "What If I Did" http://wcbe.org/post/dick-and-jane-song-week-what-if-i-did <p><br />--------------------------------------------------------------------------------</p><p>Ska / Reggae</p><p>--------------------------------------------------------------------------------</p><p>LYRICS</p><p>I saw you running around with her this summer, her honey blonde hair billowing around her face.

His heart is racing, numb with fear and doubt.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The reign of bullets begin, as missiles streak the sky. Everything’s about to change in the blink of an eye. She feels like closing door.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Oh, reach a little further and you will find, that you can walk the distance, discover bravery inside. Outrun the resistance, keep on persisting, and it will be alright. Oh, reach a little further.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>They watch with pity as her pain takes its toll.

Whether you’re wrong or right, think like a bird or a butterfly, ready to take flight.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Finally, you need to learn. Stand up, be strong, be heard, ready to fight, ready to lead. High and tall, you’ve got to exceed.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Break the barriers. Jump the hurdles. Run the distance. Take off when you hear that startin’ gun. Don’t wait for resistance.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Be brave and don’t let nobody ever push your fire. Speak what’s on your mind, then learn how to take steps higher.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Everyday, relentlessly, they try to break him down. (Don’t let ‘em get ya.)
