Just Being Me Listen to my heart And the song it sings Telling me to be strong For a minute Master of my fate Captain of my soul I know where I belong For a minute Let yourself grow But don’t ever change Nor apologise For a minute I’m just being me, me I’m just being me, me I’m just being me I’m not pre fect And I’ll never be But I’ll flight for all to see That this time I’m just being me Celebrate yourself And what you’ve become Follow your inner light For a minute Cultivate your mind Speak words of wisdom And you will shine For a minute So if this is my freedom Then I don’t want for nothing else I just need time, oh I just need time In this cold world That’s trying to make me someone else Oh I just need time, time to just be myself

Promises We’re no longer asleep And we will mend our broken dreams Cos we found our way To move on to a better place Finally your promises Your promises don’t mean a thing Finally your promises Your promises don’t mean a thing You sold us hopes and dreams The likes that we’ve never seen Said a change is gonna come Not just for me but everyone And we pray and pray on bended knees Believing you will set us free But I’m glad that I know To run far away from you Finally your promises Your promises don’t mean a thing Finally your promises Your promises don’t mean a thing To me, to them, my friends, you see, you see To me, to them, my friends, you see, you see yeah Nearly every men, woman or child can stand adversity But if you want to test man's character Give him power, give him power, give him power We gave you power to lead Not to abuse us out of greed We put our trust in you You fed us lies and not the truth Please don't pretending that you care Give us back our stolen years But I’m glad that I know To run far away from you Finally your promises Your promises don’t mean a thing Finally your promises Your promises don’t mean a thing To me, to them, my friends, you see, you see yeah To me, to them, my friends, you see yeah, you see yeah Finally your promises Your promises don’t mean a thing Finally your promises Your promises don’t mean a thing To me, to them, my friends, you see, you see yeah To me, to them, my friends, you see, you see yeah

This Ain't Living We are still only slaves In a world with open gates Close your eyes then you’ll see What it means to be free This ain’t living This ain’t living no, no, no We belong to a state That whispers not love but hate You can choose to fall in line Or try real hard to see the signs This ain’t living This ain’t living no, no, no It’s about time That we need A revolution of the mind It’s about time That we need A revolution of the mind This ain’t living This ain’t living no, no, no Whilst we stand on freedom’s shore Praying for one of them brand new storms I can feel it so can you But the question is what are we gonna do This ain’t living This ain’t living no, no, no It’s about time That we need A revolution of the mind It’s about time That we need A revolution of the mind This ain’t living This ain’t living no, no, no

Land Of Paradise The is no such place so I’ve been told Because, if there was we would have found it by now It is just a dream son, just a dream that lives in our minds Constructed by the world that plays out before us A dream that will never come to light, like a dying star in a galaxy far, far away from here Distant galaxy that can only be imagined, because that’s all we can do We are far away, away from home And my memories ain’t what they use to be But I still believes in the power of love So I’ll show the world that the is nothing wrong To be seen a child of this universe Some day we'll find Some day we'll find Our land of paradise Well I choose to hope for more Like a hungry child begging for life, begging for a better tomorrow Because, tomorrow doesn't belong to me, you or them, it belongs to the future, it belongs to our children Tomorrow is a place that has to be better than today Where all mans differences can be celebrated Celebrated like a brand new day that promises a chance to make a change I speak for my generation And celebrate what we will become Let’s build upon our freedom song And show the world that the is nothing wrong To be seen a child of this universe Some day we'll find Some day we'll find Some day we'll find Some day we'll find Our land of paradise

I Belong To You I belong to you You belong to me Through the good times and bad We'll always be Runaway with me into the sun You’ll be my queen and I your king Grow old together in each others arms Let’s laugh my friend until the end I belong to you You belong to me Through the good times and bad We'll always be Lord only knows what we’ll become But I’m ready to take the chance I’ve found in you the perfect one That holds the key to unlock my heart I belong to you You belong to me Through the good times and bad We'll always be Let’s build this home with love and joy A place to be happy and free What we’ve found is gold can’t be destroyed Seasons will come but we’ll never change Lovers in a world of broken hearts I'll follow you until the end of time Part of my dreams are made of you You love me true in all you do

Forget Me Not Memories erased from your beautiful mind We never knew life could be so unkind My lovers soul is lost to her past All the wonderful times we always thought would last Hey there my love it's me yet again Let's take a walk down memory lane We'll sit in a fields of forget me not’s I'll remind you of the world you forgot I’ll wait patiently in a corner of your mind Praying for one more minute of your time Hey there my love it's me yet again Let's take a walk down memory lane We'll sit in a fields of forget me not’s I'll remind you of the world you forgot Time is the enemy but times were once good Come with me and lets re-visit our love Hey there my love it's me yet again Let's take a walk down memory lane We'll sit in a fields of forget me not’s I'll remind you of the world you forgot Hey there my love it's me, it's me, oh it's me Hey there my love it's me, it's me, it's me

Missing You I’m now just an echo Of the man I use to be Slowly fading away Like a distant memory I’m left with only kisses I can no longer touch And the deepest of feelings How I loved you so much If it’s love that is missing I don’t want to be missing you no no If it’s love that is missing How come I’m still missing you Oh I’ve tried to forget you Now am loving someone-else It’s hard to replace you When I'm under your spell I’ve never felt this lonely Like a bird without a song So help me stop these tears form falling Falling You have stolen my heart And now I need it back To rebuild the rest of me And what love I had Just an ocean of nothing Stands between us And the saddest regret Why I loved you so much If it’s love that is missing I don’t want to be missing you no no If it’s love that is missing How come I’m still missing you How come I’m still missing you How come I’m still missing you If it’s love that is missing I don’t want to be missing you no no If it’s love that is missing baby How come I’m still missing you Since you've been gone Since you've been gone Since you've been gone Yeah alright How come I’m still missing you Right on baby yeah How come I’m still missing you How come I’m still missing you

Empty Road Oh lord I need you Oh lord I need you by my side Just give me hope On this empty road Just give me hope On this empty road Darkness will come Darkness will come On this empty road Just give me hope On this empty road Just give me hope On this empty road I stand before you A desperate man As I start this journey On this empty road Just give me hope On this empty road Just give me hope On this empty road I’ve come this far And I won’t turn back As I start this journey On this empty road Just give me hope On this empty road Just give me hope On this empty road Cos my demons wait for me At my down fall The stars are closer than they seem So I hold on to my dreams I hold on to my dreams These stars are closer than they seem So I let go of my fear And only hold on to my dreams Help me find reason For this love I have As I start this journey On this empty road Just give me hope On this empty road Just give me hope On this empty road I feel a fake Amongst my kings As I start this journey On this empty road Just give me hope On this empty road Just give me hope On this empty road Cos my demons wait for me At my down fall The stars are closer than they seem So I hold on to my dreams I hold on to my dreams These stars are closer than they seem So I let go of my fear And only hold on to my dreams

about

“Just Being Me” the third album release by Myles Sanko. 213 Music © 2016

Know all the theories, master all the techniques, but as you
touch a human soul be just another human soul. - C.G. Jung

Everybody wants to be somebody but nobody wants to be themselves!
I have gone through life thinking I wasn’t good enough and that I had to be
like others to be liked or understood. After all these years I am finally free to be the
imperfect me and love who I have become. I will speak my mind, do what
makes me happy and love with all my heart.

This album is about love, hope and politics, and has a piece of me
in every part.

The biggest thank you goes out to my wonderful team and fellow musicians for continuing to believe in me and helping me realise this dream:

Tom O’Grady, Rick Hudson, Phil Stevenson, Jon Mapp, Gareth Lumbers
Neil Waters, Neil Penny, Tom White, Ric Elsworth, Helmut Heuer, Miguel Lozano, Sonia Alcantara and Soenke Lohse. Where would I be without you guys.
