about

Yanii Marie Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

My name is Yanii Marie, and I'm an aspiring musician. I live through my music and I don't know where I'd be without it. Putting my music out here, I only hope to help people through their own lives.
If you absolutely had to compare me to someone, your best bet would be Angel Taylor or India Arie.. They're both so amazing, and their music influences me greatly.

Track Name: What We Play is Life
Times are hard but we'll get through it
Baby, don't worry your pretty little head
It'll be alright
Take a chance, roll your dice
Tell me, what have you got to lose in this game we call life

Sitting out on the balcony
Little Sally's got a problem and she just can't see how to get around it and it's tearing her up inside
So she falls to her knees and cries
And then her
Dear old mother steps outside to see what's wrong and
Little Sally can't control her tears at all
She tells her mother that she wants to erase today
So she whispers into Sally's ear and says

Times are hard but we'll get through it
Baby, don't worry your pretty little head
It'll be alright
Take a chance, roll your dice
Tell me, what have you got to lose in this game we call life

Years later, Sally's got a baby girl
This little gift from God has shown her a whole new world
As her baby cries, she misses the old days but
She looks into her baby's eyes and says

Times are hard but we'll get through it
Baby, don't worry your pretty little head
It'll be alright
Take a chance, roll your dice
Tell me, what have you got to lose in this game we call life

Sally's baby girl's all grown up
Who knew parenthood could be so tough
When you're on your own
Just when life seems to get her down
Sally holds her head to the clouds
And remembers the words of her mother

Times are hard but we'll get through it
Baby, don't worry your pretty little head
It'll be alright
Take a chance, roll your dice
Tell me, what have you got to lose in this game we call life
Times are hard but we'll get through it
Baby, don't worry your pretty little head
It'll be alright
Take a chance, roll your dice
Tell me, what have you got to lose in this game we call life
Track Name: Losing You
It’s cold outside
The rain keeps falling and hitting my window pane
It’s cold inside
Even when I close my eyes I can still see the rain

It’s dark out there
I need you here with me to hold my hand
And I’m afraid
I might have to go out and look for you in the rain

I can’t seem to get over, can’t seem to get over
Losing you
And I don’t wanna get over, don’t wanna get over you
I don’t what else to do
I’m losing you

I can’t get out of my bed
My pillow is drenched with the tears that you’ve caused me to shed
I’m sorry if I’m making you feel bad
I just want you to know how you made me feel when you left

I can’t seem to get over, can’t seem to get over
Losing you
And I don’t wanna get over, don’t wanna get over you
I don’t what else to do
I’m losing you (I’m losing you)

I can’t eat, I can’t sleep
I need you here with me
When you left, you took a part of me
Can’t you see?

I can’t seem to get over, can’t seem to get over
Losing you
And I don’t wanna get over, don’t wanna get over you
I don’t what else to do
I’m losing you

I’m losing you
Track Name: Clocks
Mind’s racing
Feet pacing
This blank page is taunting me
Hand shaking
Head’s aching
My own thoughts are haunting me

Time’s ticking, tick-tick-ticking away
All I hear are the clocks in the back of my head
(Speeding up, speeding up) I can’t figure this out now

Time’s ticking, tick-tick-ticking away
Analog clocks are lining the walls around me.
It’s too late, I can’t fix it.
There’s no way out.

Reality
Is washing over me
I feel myself breaking down.
Time should slow down.
I’m losing faith now.
I’ve let myself lose control.

Time’s ticking, tick-tick-ticking away
All I hear are the clocks in the back of my head
(Speeding up, speeding up) I can’t figure this out now

Time’s ticking, tick-tick-ticking away
Analog clocks are lining the walls around me.
It’s too late, I can’t fix it.
There’s no way out.
Track Name: Survive
Take me away
Somewhere that no one will find me
I need to get away (Get away)
I need to leave this place
Take me away
I wanna feel like I’m free
I need to feel (To feel)
Something

Run away with me (Aaaahhh)
We’ll go someplace better than here
And we’ll find ourselves (Ourselves)
Right where we belong
Run away with me (Aaaahhh)
We’ll find a place to call our own
I’ll follow you (Follow you)
Until we’re all alone

Oohhh Ohh Ohh
I need to make it out alive
Oohhh Ohh Ohh
It’s only me I need to survive

Lead the way for me (Ahhh)
I’m lost with nowhere to go
I can’t see anything
I’m blinded by my fears
Make this real for me (Ahhh)
I need something to believe
I can’t, I need
To breathe

Oohhh Ohh Ohh
I need to make it out alive
Oohhh Ohh Ohh
It’s only me I need to survive (x2)
Track Name: Your Day Will Come
There’s a time when we all cry
There’s a time when we just laugh the tears away
We’re living for today because
Tomorrow isn’t promised
There’s always room for change
Whether the sun is shining or we’re standing in the rain

I know sometimes it seems like there is
No chance for us to win.
We’re hanging by a thread but
Keep your head up, don’t surrender
I promise
Your day will come

People come and people go
That’s just how the world
Teaches us to move on
It makes us stronger
We’re ready for battle
We’ll be fighting ‘til the end
I know you’re scared inside but trust me,
You’ll make it

I know sometimes it seems like there is
No chance for us to win.
We’re hanging by a thread but
Keep your head up, don’t surrender
I promise
Your day will come

Br: You can’t give up
Just look into my eyes,
You’ll see that I believe in you.
Trust in me
We’ll make it through together
I promise
You won’t fall

I know sometimes it seems like there is
No chance for us to win.
We’re hanging by a thread but
Keep your head up, don’t surrender
I promise
Your day will come
