Room 8's Sensational Singing

This term in music we have been focusing on singing. We have been learning to sing in time and tune. Mrs Pooley has been helping us with this and taught us the song Speak Life which we sang in school assembly. Have a listen to our great singing:



Mrs Pooley taught us today how to sing in a round, where different groups sing the same song but start at different times. It sounds lovely.

Assembly Song to practise

Here is the song we are singing for assembly. Have a practise at home.

Speak Life - Song Lyrics

VERSE 1
Some days life feels perfect  Other days, it just ain’t workin’
The good, the bad, the right, the wrong  And everything in between
Yo it’s crazy, amazing  We can turn a heart through the words we say
Mountains crumble with every syllable  Hope can live or die
CHORUS
So speak life, speak life  To the deadest darkest night
Speak life, speak life  When the sun won’t shine and you don’t know why
Look into the eyes of the broken hearted  Watch them come alive as soon as you speak hope
You speak love, you speak  You speak life, oh oh oh oh oh  You speak life, oh oh oh oh oh
VERSE 2
Some days the tongue gets twisted  Other day my thoughts just fall apart
I do, I don’t, I will, I won’t  It’s like I’m drowning in the deep
Well, it’s crazy to imagine  Words from my lips as the arms of compassion
Mountains crumble with every syllable  Hope can live or die
CHORUS

BRIDGE
Lift your head a little higher  Spread the love like fire
Hope will fall like rain  When you speak life with the words you say
Raise your thoughts a little higher  Use your words to inspire
Joy will fall like rain when you speak life with the things you say
Lift your head a little higher  Spread the love like fire
Hope will fall like rain  When you speak life with the words you say
CHORUS
ENDING  You speak life, oh oh oh oh oh  You speak life, oh oh oh oh oh
Some days life feels perfect
