Track Name: Living Without You
Say to my heart,
"you'll make it through"
It's getting hard to live without you.

And then I heard,
you've got a girl.
Now I can't stand to live without you

And it shudders through my mind,
your words that made me cry
"think of me as friends, that's all I will be to you."

More time goes by,
Still asking why
I made the choice to live without you
Track Name: Good Lies
Ever find yourself in something you never thought would end?
When it's over, say to yourself, "I don't know who I am"
Can't sleep, can't eat, can't focus. God, is this the end?
Well I've been there, talk to me, you know I understand

Your words will not rectify
Feed myself good lies
My words will not rectify
Feed yourself good rectify

I know we're up to something
And now we're left with nothing
I kept my heart and soul till the end
And now I feed myself good lies
Track Name: Summer Of Love
Summer of Love, feeling the heat
Police brutality in the streets
My roommate, she puts it well,
"It's like a living hell"

I volunteer, put in some time
Experience turn into rhyme
So empathetic, spinning around
It's like we're moving into another Summer of Love

And with the falling trees, we'll see it then
And with the parting seas, we'll see it then
Two generations left, so science says
I refuse to believe this is the end,
Beyond the Summer of Love

I listen forward, I listen back
I read the news, I read the facts
Come on and tell me, what do you think?
It's like we're moving into another Summer of love

What is the future? Learn from the past
Stop feeling helpless, get up and act
I'll give it to yah, I'll give it up
It's like we're moving into another Summer of love
Track Name: Finally
I finally did it
I said goodbye
To everything with it
That made me cry
I finally did it
I said goodbye
TO everything with it
That made me cry

And now you'll hear
all the songs
as they pour from my mind
not for you
to share
cause they're all mine

And now I feel
The other emotion
Always alone
Living in doubt
Oh how I feel
the other emotion
Always alone
Living in doubt
Track Name: She's In Love
She's got that good old fashioned feeling
Like all the world is so kind
She walks around looking for signs
other people walking in time

She's in Love
She's in Love
She's in Love
She's In Love

Pretties girl
Top of the world
She doesn't have a care what the others say
Look at her now
Happy child
Bet you wanna take her home tonight, uhh

She's got that heavy pumping movement
Wakes to the day with open arms
She's got a brand new face, to paint
She is singing a new song
Track Name: New York Town
Well don't you dare tell me what color his skin should be
I thought we passed that now, come on don't break it
I live in New York Town, I sing it all the way down
So that my neighbors hear how he can shake it

It's a lonely lonely world where there is hatred
It can only only only only cut you down
It's a lonely lonely world where there is hatred
It can only only only only cut you down
So come on

She is an old world lady
living in safety
sincerity in tradition
the world keeps moving
and I am grooving
I tip my hat in recognition

It's a lonely lonely world where there is hatred
It can only only only only cut you down
It's a lonely lonely world where there is hatred
It can only only only only cut you down
So come on
Come on with me
Track Name: Dancing In Bembe
Let's make it all right
Soak up the moonlight
The longest day, the hottest night
We dance it all away in Bembe

Hold me so tight
Spin me just right
The longest days
The hottest nights
We dance all away in Bembe

And when your days are so empty
Working so hard for what?
You feel your blood pressure rising
Your doctor tells you to stop!

Let's make it all right
Soak up the moonlight
The longest day, the hottest night
We dance it all away in Bembe

Hold me so tight
Spin me just right
The longest days
The hottest nights
We dance all away in Bembe
Track Name: Juan See's
Juan see's a cycle of static
Refugees arrive with hope for change
Uhh, humanitarian aid
victimization is their trade

How can this be?
Oh what does Juan see?
Oh how can we remember that our world is in need?

Suffering people is a profit
Organizations must get paid
Focus on tragedy
The more the better they say

Let the big bosses make their mull
250,000 in Kenya
Move on Syria
Political importance in the media

Oh how can this be?
Oh what does Juan see?
Oh how can we remember that our world is in need?

But the moments of beauty remain
Resilience and strength
Build business inside out
Empowering life

Oh how can this be?
Oh what does Juan see?
Oh how can we remember that our world is in need?
Track Name: Feed My Soul
Going out with a Reggae rocker
Trying things that feel much softer
Loosen up on motivation
Sink on into hibernation

Oh! I feed my soul
Whoaw! I feed my soul
I let life build character
Whoaw, I feed my soul

Audition as an Indian dancer
Lost Colony has the answer
Already I can hear their laughter,
New York City Moves much faster!

Oh! I feed my soul
Whoaw! I feed my soul
I let life build character
Whoaw, I feed my soul

Ride my bike to the big drum circle
I'm a looker yea I'm a lurker
Everywhere is inspiration,
Understand why I connect

Oh! I feed my soul
Whoaw! I feed my soul
I let life build character
Whoaw, I feed my soul
