Radio Show …
launched in May, 2008 streams worldwide on WRHC-FM. We were the nation’s first radio show that allowed listeners to read the lyrics as the songs play. Teen guest DJs suggest songs that either inspire positive self-esteem, a healthy planet, peace, diversity or never giving up. After each song we discuss the message of the lyrics and how these songs can help youth, all over the world, choose to change things about themselves that may be holding them back from a life free of not feeling “good enough” and the self-bullying that results from feeling that way. If you’d like to suggest songs for us to play and discuss, email the lyrics to:  PreventBullyingNow@heyugly.org. If we use it on our show, we’ll send you a FREE T-shirt. Our theme song is CHANGE YOUR MIND by Sister HazelEnjoy our comedic sidekick DJ, Anthony Pratscher, producer of Hey U.G.L.Y.’s  Bullying Prevention TV.

SLINGSHOT by Devyn Rush & Daniel McMains

I know you’re feeling kinda sad and lonely
And I get it’s like you are the only one
But baby you can just release the tension
The thing is that you already won

You don’t even know what’s bout to happen
But it’s gonna blow your mind
Every failure leads to new beginnings

Oh slingshot there you go
Pullin it back and ya don’t even know, that you’re
‘Bout to fly farther than you’ve ever flown
Oh slingshot here you are
Got yourself higher than your wishin stars, cuz you

Fin’lly understand that’s what you are
Don’t it feel like everything is changin?
Can’t you see your life just rearranging?
Catapulting you from there to where

You’re goin
Something beautiful’s about to happen
So baby just open up your mind
Every failure leads to new beginnin’s

Oh slingshot there you go
Pullin it back and ya don’t even know, that you’re
‘Bout to fly farther than you’ve ever flown

Oh slingshot here you are
Got yourself higher than your wishin stars, cuz you

Fin’lly understand that’s what you are
Failure leads to feeling
Feeling leads to healing
Healing leads to living

Oh slingshot there you go
Pullin it back and ya don’t even know, that you’re
‘Bout to fly farther than you’ve ever flown

Oh slingshot here you are
Got yourself higher than your wishin stars, cuz you
Fin’lly understand that’s what you are

BEFORE YOU SAY YOU LOVE ME by Devyn Rush & Daniel McMains

Too close, too quick
You’re cool, you’re slick
I’m o-ver it
Too nice, to be
Re-al-i-ty

So i’ll just walk away
Before you say you love me
I’m not, naive
You won’t, deceive
Cuz I’m not the kind of girl who’s just gonna believe

You’ll say you’ll call
I used to just fall
But baby I’mma walk away
Before you say you love me
Before you lie to me
Before you try to be

The one who pulls me so far from myself
Before you blind me
Before you bind me
Before you get in the way of my mental health

This time I’m gonna be better
You might, act shy
In your, spotlight

But honey I know exactly your type
I’m fine, alone
Cuz you’re not, the one

So darling, let’s just consider it said and done
“Before you lie and say you love me
Before you rip my heart out when you say that you love me
Before you buy me dinner and hold my hand and make me trust you
Before you wanna get a dog together…

Don’t make that reservation baby…
I’m havin my own reservations baby…”

HOME by Devyn Rush & Daniel McMains

It all comes flooding back
I don’t know how to react, but
It feels like home
Strange waves of emotion haunt me
But it’s not the same as it used to be, cuz

You feel like home
Every day I get to wake up, next to you
And all the time I find myself in love with something new
You keep me in the here and now cuz now I know my truth

I only wanna be with you…

***A x2 (INTRO, Then SOLO)***

Every night I fall asleep with you, holding me
I never fell so deep but you just make it so easy
I know I’m safe inside this beautiful, mystery

(1) So even when my mind’s, in the past
I thank all the memories that I have, cuz
They led me home
It feels like home
You feel like home
I know I’m home…

THINK ABOUT IT by Devyn Rush & Daniel McMains

Whatcha gonna do
When you’re all alone
When there’s no one there,
At the sound of the tone
Whatcha gonna do
When you got regrets

Cuz she walked away,
The best woman you had
Ok Honey you can have it your wayI’m not tryin’a make you stay with me

Baby I can show you to the doorway
But you can’t just come back, once you leave
Think about it
Baby Think about it
Just think about it

Don’t, worry bout thinkin about me
Think about it
Really think about
Think about it

You, don’t have to worry bout me
Just think
Honey Think
Think
Go on, Think

Whatcha gonna do
When you’re all alone
When there’s no one there,
To call up on the phone
And at night in bed
When you toss and turn
Cuz she’s in your head
Will-it be a lesson learned?

Darling I’m so through with the excuses
Lies keep getting harder to believe
Homie I just don’t know what the use is

If you wanna leave, just leave
“But while you’re at it…”

(Pause/Breath, Laugh)

Think about it
Baby about it
Just think about it
Don’t, worry bout thinkin about me
Think about it

Really think about
Think about it
You, don’t have to worry bout me
Think

Just think
Think
Think
Whoa Think
Come on think
Oh Think
Whoa!!!

(“Oo”s)

Darling I’m so through with the excuses
Lies keep getting harder to believe
Homie I just don’t know what the use is
If you wanna leave, just leave

Think about it
Think about it
Just think about it
Don’t, worry bout thinkin about me

Think about it
Really think about
Think about it
You, don’t have to worry bout me
Think about it

Think about it
Just think about it

Don’t, worry bout thinkin about me
Think about it
Really think about
Think about it

You, don’t have to worry bout me
I was lost until I saw your halo
I was blind until I saw your light
I believe, my friend, we all have angels
And you are mine

I think you should know you saved my life
Whoa, whoa
I think you should know you saved my life
Whoa, whoa
I think you should know you saved my life

I don’t think you realize what your words can do
Oh oh
The whole world was falling all around me, but I held onto you

Oh you, you stay by my side
And you, you kept on the lights
And you knew just what to say
When I was fading
Sometimes all that you need
Is someone who can believe in you
More than you do

I was lost until I saw your halo
I was blind until I saw your light
I believe, my friend, we all have angels
And you are mine

I think you should know you saved my life
Whoa, whoa
I think you should know you saved my life
(I was lost until I saw your halo)
Whoa, whoa
(I was blind until I saw your light)
I think you should know you saved my life
(I believe, my friend, we all have angels)
Whoa, whoa
(And you are mine)
I think you should know you saved my life
