B i o g r a p h y
 (by Greg Prato)

Rock music in the 1980s had completely lost the gritty feel of earlier eras, until Lenny Kravitz rediscovered the magic formula. Kravitz's sonic template combined good old-fashioned rock & roll with glam, soul, and psychedelia, making him a massive success. He made a splash straight out of the gate with his album Let Love Rule. After that, he de-emphasized the flower-power aspects of his music and began moving toward a heavier rock sound. This progression brought him such huge hits as "Are You Gonna Go My Way" and a hard-rocking cover of the Guess Who's "American Woman." Along the way, his flamboyant image, model-like looks, and frequent acting roles made him a fixture in pop-music circles. Born in New York on May 26, 1964 (his mother was actress Roxie Roker, best known for her role as Helen Willis on the popular TV series The Jeffersons, and his father was a TV producer), Kravitz was raised in Los Angeles, where he found himself around countless musical giants as a youngster due to his parents' friendships with the likes of Duke Ellington, Sarah Vaughan, Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald, Bobby Short, and Miles Davis. Kravitz was a member of the California Boys Choir until his teenage years, when he decided to pursue rock & roll while in high school and under the heavily influence of funk-rocker Prince. Kravitz's admiration of the Purple One was so great that he at first patterned his style and approach directly after Prince and became known as "Romeo Blue" (complete with blue contact lenses), but failed to land a recording contract.

In the late '80s, Kravitz relocated back to New York City, where one of his roommates turned out to be actress Lisa Bonet (who played the part of Denise Huxtable on The Cosby Show); they eventually got married. During this time, Kravitz wisely discarded his Prince-like approach and looked back to such '60s/'70s classic rockers as Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Wonder, Curtis Mayfield, Bob Marley, and the Beatles for inspiration. Kravitz found a kindred spirit in engineer Henry Hirsch (who would stick by Kravitz throughout his career). With a back-to-basics approach, his style was quite refreshing in the humorously gaudy late '80s. He inked a recording contract with Virgin Records and issued his debut release, Let Love Rule, in 1989. Kravitz's debut proved to be a surprise hit due to the success of the title track, which became a hit single and oft-aired video. A few critics were quick to assume that Kravitz's retro look and sound were simply a schtick to get the public's attention, but come the '90s, it had become integrated into the mainstream (both musically and fashion-wise), proving that Kravitz was a bit of a trendsetter. It was around this time that Kravitz penned a major hit single, not for himself but for Madonna, who went to number one with the sultry track "Justify My Love." What should have been a time of happiness for Kravitz quickly turned sour as he and Bonet divorced in the early '90s. Kravitz's heartbreak was very evident in his sophomore effort, Mama Said, which was even stronger than its predecessor, highlighted by the Led Zep-like funk-rocker "Always on the Run" (a collaboration with Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash), as well as a mega-hit with the Curtis Mayfield-esque soul ballad "It Ain't Over 'Til It's Over," which confirmed that Kravitz's success was no fluke. But the best was yet to come for Kravitz. His third release overall, 1993's Are You Gonna Go My Way, is often considered to be the finest album front to back of his entire career, and with good reason: every single song was a winner, including the uptempo, anthemic title track, which turned out to be one of MTV's most-played videos for that year. The album was a massive hit and Kravitz became an arena headliner stateside, as well as being featured on countless magazine covers.

Despite an almost two-year gap between albums, Kravitz's fourth release, Circus, came off sounding unfocused and was a major letdown compared to his stellar previous few releases. Perhaps sensing that he needed to stir things up musically, Kravitz dabbled with electronics and trip-hop loops for his next album, 1998's 5. Although not a huge hit right off the bat, the album proved to have an incredibly long chart life, spawning the biggest hit of Kravitz's career, "Fly Away," almost a year after its original release. With the single's success, Virgin decided to cash in on the album's sudden rebirth by reissuing it around the same time with a pair of extra added bonus tracks, one of which became another sizable hit single, a remake of the Guess Who's "American Woman" (which was used in the hit 1999 comedy movie Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me). Kravitz's first best-of set, the 15-track Greatest Hits, was issued as a stopgap release in 2000, while his sixth studio release overall, Lenny, was issued a year later. Baptism followed in 2004. After starting a residential, commercial, and product design company called Kravitz Design, he recorded a funky version of John Lennon's "Cold Turkey" for Amnesty International's 2007 benefit compilation Instant Karma. Before the end of the year it was announced that Kravitz would return in 2008 with a new album, It Is Time for a Love Revolution. The album arrived in February, accompanied by a brief tour. Kravitz made his acting debut in the Academy Award-nominated 2009 film Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire. As he was filming his next role -- a spot in the eagerly awaited adaptation of Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games -- he released his ninth album, Black and White America, in the summer of 2011. Reprising his role of Cinna in the second of The Hunger Games movies in 2013, Kravitz wouldn't return to the studio until the following year. Kravitz released his tenth studio album, Strut, in September of 2014; it was preceded by the disco-rock single "The Chamber."

I build this garden for us

I build this garden for us, I build this garden for us
I build this garden for us, I build this garden for us

 In this garden
This lovely garden
I build a temple of love
Walk with the Father
Won't be a bother
To touch the Earth as it was
We'll farm the land each day
And in the sunshine we will play
Glory glory for the day He came
Our tears had gone away
We'll make love in the shade
And in the ocean we will bathe
Little fishies in the sea
Say hooray

I build this garden for us, I build this garden for us
I build this garden for us, I build this garden for us

In this garden
Our children will grow
Darling this is a must
We'll be so happy
Our little family
So full of love and trust
And darling when we're old
We'll close the gates and lock the door
Our love will never fade away
When it's pure it forever last
And darling when you're cold
I'll hold you tight and keep you warm
Little darlin' gonna make it through the storm
You'll never be alone

I build this garden for us, I build this garden for us
I build this garden for us, I build this garden for us

In this garden
They'll be no war
No racial prejudice
You'll be my brother
Of any color
You'll just be okay with us
We'll live each day in peace
In hope that we will one day reach
The rest of the world
When they are ready to be teached
The kingdom will come
Thy will will be done
On Earth as it is in heaven
I build this garden
I build this garden for us
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

I build this garden for us, I build this garden for us
I build this garden for us, I build this garden for us

I build this garden, yeah
No war no more
Gonna build yeah
Yeah ouh.

Fear

 I smell the fear that rains inside
The thought of children who must oblige
To tainted dreams and polluted seas
The missing moon and melting trees
A mist of doom and clouds of pain
A toxic waste and an acid rain
The passing of our ignorance
A lifetime spent in abstinence

I living in fear, I living in fear
I can't tell you no lies
I living in fear, I living in fear

Conditioned to hate and them to blame
Their search for God is just the same
Machines for hearts, how warped a view
Forgeting that they're human too
Waiting like a branded steer
Who first will launch the burning spear
When every day may be your last
You think we'd learn from our past

I living in fear, I living in fear
I can't tell you no lies
I living in fear, I living in fear
Ouh yeah yeah yeah yeah

I smell the fear that rains inside
The thought of so many lives denied
More wounded soldiers, another burning flag
And rows and rows of body bags
No time for tears as the night falls cold
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
The day survivors crawl back in their holes
As for the rest they're shipped back home
Home to the rows of white tomb stones

I living in fear, I living in fear
I can't tell you no, tell you no lies, yeah yeah
Fear, I living in fear
Ouh yeah yeah yeah yeah

Does anybody out there even care

 The dream is lost
Don't let it slip away
Or bloody days won't be far away
'Cause when there's no more sun
There's no where you can run

Does anybody know how many lives we've lost
Can anybody ever pay the cost
What will it take for us to join in peace my friends
Does anybody out there even care

Wake up world before it's too late
It's time for love to conquer hate
And when the battle's won
We all can live as one

Does anybody know how many lives we've lost
Can anybody ever pay the cost
What will it take for us to join in peace my friends
Does anybody out there even care

Hey
Riots in the streets,
Men dressed in white sheets
Is that what we want
Oh a little boy hanging from a tree
And a burning cross
If we can learn that we're one we can overcome
Before this takes us all
We'd better catch ourselves before we fall

Does anybody know how many lives we've lost
Yeah hey hey hey
Can anybody ever pay the cost
What will it take for us to join in peace my friends
Does anybody out there even care
Does anybody out there even care

Mr cab driver

 Mr Cab Driver won't stop to let me in

Rosemary

Little Mary was five years old
Her parents left her, she was out in the cold
Alone to live and find her way
In this great world of heartache and pain

Eyes of brown, matted locks of gold
Her flowered dress is tattered and soiled
Tear stained cheeks, her feet cold and bare
Who could have left a child so rare

Rosemary your day will come
He loved you so He gave His only son
Keep the faith in your soul
Stay down on your knees
I'm begging you please
Hold onto the beads at your heart

A burning heart and tired eyes
Howling winds for lullabys
No one there to soothe her fright
Nowhere to turn but the inward light
Because life is for believing
That your heart can turn to gold
All you need is Christ to receive it
There's eternal life for every soul

Rosemary your day will come
He loved you so He gave His only son
Keep the faith in your soul
Stay down on your knees
I'm begging you please
Hold onto the beads at your heart

Rosemary, Rosemary
He loves you
He needs you
He wants you
So don't let him down

Singing
Rosemary your day will come
He loved you so He gave His only son
Keep the faith in your soul
Stay down on your knees
I'm begging you please
Hold onto the beads at your heart

Yeah yeah,
Rosemary, singing, Rosemary
Rosemary
Rosemary, come on now yeah
Got to keep the faith yeah
Keep the faith

Be

 Lord what's the matter
Am I lost
This life's a disaster, what is the cause
Am I a junkie, what is my fate
Or am I a flunkie who doesn't relate
Or am I a child so full of hate

Am I a doctor or even a priest
Or am I a rapist who needs a release
A psychotic prancer
Times Square dancer
The mind can see as long as you'll be
For real with yourself
And you'll forever be

Be, be, be, be
You'll forever be
Be, be, be, you'll forever you be
You'll forever be
When you're real with yourself
You'll forever be

Lord what's the matter am I insame
This life's an illusion that's all it remains
Are you listening, are you boss
Am I gonna make it up on that cross
Believe in Your name and
You'll forever be

Be, be, be, be
You'll forever be
Be, be, be, you'll forever be
Ever be, ever be
You'll forever be
You'll forever, ever, ever.

Blues for sister someone

I know a girl who gets off
By sticking needles in her vein
Oh lord what a shame

She's got no money so she turns tricks
And plays dirty games
Oh Lord spare her pain

What she say she do to you
You'd have to be insane
The bathroom stall, her bedroom
The one that's always engaged
She sleeps and eats with the plague

She's got a baby in her belly
But she just don't care
What will become of the pair

Oh Lord what can she do
To get the shit out her hair
To get the shit out her hair

Oh Lord It's not fair
Blues for sister someone
Oh Lord

Empty hands

He rode in town on a white horse
With nothing in his hands
He came to gather his people
And take them to their promised land
When he came he knew there would be bloodshed
But still no violence made his plans
He came to fight in a battle
With no guns or money

But with his empty hands
With his empty hands
With his empty hands
With his empty hands

They said hey boy what you lookin'at
As they eyed his dreaded mane
He said my father has sent me
I've come back to reclaim
The children whose hearts
Were so whole and pure
Now it's you who'll die in pain
So they lynched the man
Who fooled the word
And all the children gathered
In his empty hands

In his empty hands
The children ..... empty hands
In his empty hands
With his empty hands
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah, ouh
In his empty hands

With his empty hands
In his empty hands
He ... the mission with his empty hands
In his empty hands
With his empty, his empty, empty empty hands
With his empty hands

Flower child

 Dressed in purple velvets
With a flower in her hair
Feel her gentle spirit
As the champa fills the air
She wears rubys on her fingers
Tiny bells upon her toes
She's the finest thing
I've ever seen
Love that ring inside her nose

Flower child yeah, flower child
Flower child oh yeah

She's a psychedelic princess
On a magic carpet ride
And where her trip will carry you
Is somewhere you can't find
She's on a plane of higher consciousness
Meditation is the key
She's got her shit together
'Cause her soul and mind are free
Free

Flower child, free yeah yeah yeah yeah,
Flower child that is
Flower child, oh yeah
Flower child yeah
My little flower child
Flower child yeah

She's a child of Martin Luther
As a freedom fighter she
Speaks of liberation on the land
And on the sea
Her eyes are made of sunshine
And her lips are jelly sweet

Flower child yeah
My little flower child
Flower child oh yeah
Flower child yeah
My little flower child
Flower child oh yeah

You gonna free me
You gonna free me
You gonna free free free free free yeah.

My pockets were full now my money's gone
My friends come around and now they're gone
Things come and they come and then they go
And where they go nobody knows

It's gonna come around
What goes around comes around
It's gonna come around
What goes around comes around

My cup over runneth with fullness and grace
Yet people push bullshit in my face
The future can't hold what your money can't buy
My brother keep striving your child relies

It's gonna come around
What goes around comes around
It's gonna come around
What goes around comes around

This world keeps on spinning does the future know ?
We're destined to screw ourselves one blow
We've ruined what's pure down from nature below
You'd better look back it'll all be gone

It's gonna come around
What goes around comes around
It's gonna come around
What goes around comes around

So children please listen this world is yours
This message is too deep to ignore
Your forefathers said but they did not do
The things that would show that they cared for you

It's gonna come around
What goes around comes around
It's gonna come around
What goes around comes around

Comes around comes around comes around X3

The difference is why

I'm just a human
I never said I was God
And each day I wonder where you are
How could our lives once be so together
Now we're apart
I know we can make it
But where do we start ?

Sometimes the scales get unbalanced
Don't you know the reason why ?
The difference is why, the difference is why

You say you can't trust me
Have you tried ?
You say you don't love me
That's a lie
There are so many so many rainbows
That we were to climb
But baby baby why can't we survive ?

We've got to get our heads untangled
And free our state of mind
The difference is why,
Hey yeah, hou!, the difference is why

Sometimes the scales get unbalanced
Don't you know the reason why ?
The difference is why
Yeah ! , the difference is why
Does this have to mean goodbye ?

When the morning turns to night

Little girl with heroin so blue
You've got to find the future in you
Your scepters and needles will put you away
Forever and a day

Your future will haunt you before you get there
Imagine a planet with no air
All mute no light no sun only night
As far away as neverland

As the sky comes tumbling down to the head
And the valleys are all filled up with dirt
As many people as there are sands in the sea
Will die the morning after
Yeah

So little girl with heroin so blue
I guess our future is all up to you
Through the battle sequence you must fight
'Til the morning turns to night

So imagine our world with no air
Just follow the son, He'll take you where
The night and the seas are all full of light
'Til the morning turns to night
'Til the morning, yeah, turns to night

What the fuck are we saying ?

Will we ever understand ?
Or is the fate of man at hands ?
Will we live or shall we die ?
How will we ever know if we never try ?

The government's the devil's hands
It's a lie and it's a scam
They wind us up, put us down, and watch us go
And if you close your eyes
There's a big surprise

What the fuck are we saying ?
Do we feel what we dream about ?
We've got to keep on praying
And one day we'll see the light

I've been lost in the name of love
And we kill our brothers daily in the name of God
We'd better chill before we take on some tribulation
And if we realized
Then we'd make a little love now sing

What the fuck are we saying ?
Do we believe what we read about ?
We've got to keep on praying
And one day we'll see the light
And one day we'll see the light
And one day we'll see the light
And one day we'll see the light

What the fuck are we saying ?
Do we believe what we dream about ?
We've got to keep on praying
And one day we'll see the light
And one day we'll see the light
And one day we'll see the light
And one day we'll see the light

With a man
That never was
Up to no good
He took your soul
And he stole your only heart
Flipped your wig and left a permanent scar

Sister

You left your home
And the things you had to say
It didn't feel good to let you slide
I never got to say goodbye
I miss you girl I think I'm gonna cry

You already gave
You don't need no more of what's ailing you
Just lean on your soul with all that it takes
May god bring you back home to America
America, America, America, America.

Sister, sister, sister, sister, sister
It's just a test of faith
Your heart is pure so the devil's in your face

And you'll be free

In a beautiful place, in a beautiful place

Circus

Rock & Roll is dead

Ooohoooh yeah
You think you're on top of the world
But you know it's really over
Runnin' round with diamond rings
And coke spoons that are overflowin'
Rock and roll is dead
But all the money in the world
Can't buy you from the place you're going to

You can't even sing or play an instrument
So you just scream instead
Oh yeah

When you're living with those demons in your head
Ooohoooh yeah

Rock and roll is dead X3

Rock and roll is dead X7

One day while I was searching
For what I'll never find
She walked into my story
Said she could change my mind
This is the final offer
She said to make it quick
Don't lose out on this wonder
So I had to place my bet

Welcome to the picture show
Watching your life
Never know which way to go
It might not be right
So you better be strong

What kind of circus is this ?
What kind of fools are we ?
When is the final curtain ?
What can I do to set me free ?

Welcome to the real world
You better be strong
Never know which way to go
It might end up wrong
So you better be strong

Too many games we have to play
They always change the rules
You and me just trying to get along
What can I do ?
Got to be strong

She walked into my daydream
She told me how it had to be

Beyond the 7th sky

Beyond the 7th sky
There's a room where we are with God
Beyond the sun and moon
Where the angels will be our guard
Where the weather doesn't change
Everyday is summer
As the sands are numbered
Instead of cannonball grey
Do you think it's kinda strange ?
Or can we be lovers ?
As the spirit covers our electrified rage

Hold me mama
And we'll fly across the sea
Way beyond the moon and stars and sky
I'm talkin' bout you and God and I

Now that the time is near
I'm ready I have no fear
I know you're the one my dear
The stars will come out tonight
In time for our sacred flight
Together we'll be for life
And I will burn in your flame
Kiss me baby
Take my hand and come with me

I'm talkin'bout the moon and stars and sky
I'm talkin'bout you and God and I
Let's take it to the place where life was formed
And to the place where Jesus Christ was born

Can't get you off my mind

Life is just a lonely highway
I'm out here on the open road
I'm old enough to see behind me
But young enough to feel my soul
I don't wanna lose you baby
And I don't wanna be alone
Don't wanna live my days without you
But for now I've got to be without you

I've got a pocket full of money
And pocket full of keys that have no bounds
But then I think of lovin'
And I just can't get you off of my mind

Babe can't you see
That this is killing me
I don't want to push you baby
And I don't want you to be told
It's just that I can't breathe without you
Feel like I'm gonna lose control

I've got a pocket full of money oh yes I do
And a pocket full of keys that have no bounds
But when it comes to lovin'
I just can't get you off of my mind, yeaaah

Am I a fool to think that there's a little hope
Yeah yeahhhhhheee yeah
Tell me baby, yeah
What are the rules the reasons and the do's and don'ts
Yeah yeahhhhhheee yeah

I just can't get you off of my mind, yeah.

She was only seventeen
She packed her bag and went to the scene
She said I'm gonna take on this town I'm gonna be the queen
She mingled like she'd been there before
She worked it till they hollered for more
Then she took off all her clothes
Now everybody knows

She's all go go go yeah yeah
She wears her pants on her hips too low
She learned it all in magazines

Thin ice

You must be walking
On shaky ground
You're always jumping
At every sound
You've been a hustler for all your days
A real motherfucker in every way

When you're a loser you're all alone
So you made up for everything
That you thought you'd lost
But you paid a cost,
Hey ...

You can live your life for so long
But when you're walking on thin ice you will fall
You can live your life for so long
But when you're walking on thin ice you will fall

You're always running
With every game
First you're pushin' coke and then you're hoin' dames
You say you can't give nothing better back
Than you got back at home
Well I tell you that's bullshit brother
And that's a heavy load

It's an illusion when you think you're the boss
Oh no no no
'Cause you really ain't got a thing
But the crumbs you're tossed
But don't you feel the frost
Hey ...

You can live your life for so long
But when you're walking on thin ice you will fall
You can live your life for so long
But when you're walking on thin ice you will fall

You can live your life for so long
But when you're walking on thin ice you will fall
You can live your life for so long
But when you're walking on thin ice you will fall

Don't go and put a bullet in your head

Hey, Hey hey hey...
Don't do it, don't do it

Don't go and put a bullet in your head
Just turn your life around instead
Don't go and put a bullet in your head

I'm gonna get it
But workin' nine to five just doesn't let it
I feel I'm wastin' time and I regret it
Can't even feed my kids and my wife
Oh I'm longing to find it
A taste of the sweeter life oh my
Only takes a little time
( No don't do it )

Don't go and put a bullet in your head
Just turn your life around instead
Don't go and put a bullet in your head

Oh my oh my
Ain't got no credit
Can't even pay my rent
Where will I get it ?
There's a liquor store right down the block I'll get it
Can't even feed the pain in my heart
Oh I'm longing to find
( I'm longing to find )
A piece of the bigger pie, oh my
( A different kind )
Only it takes a little time
( A little time )
(No don't do it)

Don't go and put a bullet in your head
Just turn your life around instead
Don't go and put a bullet in your head

In my life today

When my memory starts to wander
I sit back and I ponder
How the whole world's gone asunder
I feel the rain and I hear the thunder

I was bare and I was lost
But you were there and now I'm born
You are the force and strength
In my life today

And oh how I thank you father
For giving us all over and under
You're a mystery, You're a wonder
I always knew since I was younger

I think about the way that you make it right
So full of love and sacrifice
I say yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

But you were right and I was wrong, yeah
'Cause I was weak but you were strong,
Ohoh hey hey yeah
You are the force and strength
In my life today

And now that the darkness has faded
I'm no longer blinded I can see, yeah

The resurrection

If you could feel what I could feel
Well then you'd know His love is real
If you could hear what I could hear
Well then you'd know the King is near

The resurrection is here to stay
And He's coming back again
The resurrection is here to stay
And He's coming back again
To reclaim all His souls and set us free
The resurrection is here to say
That He's coming back again

Look what He's done to me
Now I am living in another space and time
He walked on the righteous path
To keep us from Satan's wrath
We are not alone
And we're going home

The resurrection is here to say
That He's coming back again
To reclaim all His souls and set us free
The resurrection is here to say
That He is coming back again
To reclaim all His souls and set us free.
The resurrection is here to say
That He's coming back again
To reclaim all His souls, reclaim all His souls,
Reclaim all His souls, reclaim all His souls, X3

Take time

You can have it if you really want
You can grasp it if you have the thought
Feel your power that is deep within
Are you ready ?
On your mark begin

We should take time out to really love
We should find out who we really are
We should take time out to really love

Do you feel your life's a big mistake ?
Don't you hate the way it's all so fake ?
All I wanna do is just be real
And get off of the spinning wheel

All they sell us is a pack of lies
And we're buying one in every size
Can't you see it in the children's eyes ?
It's about to get wild

We should take time out to really love
We should find out who we really are
We should take time out to really love

It's your life

They say that our love is all wrong
And that we should not carry on
But I say they're wrong
I want you so bad

Oh we've been together for so long
How could they think we don't belong ?
But they'll never know what you and I have

Call your mama

Call the preacher
Hold on hold on

All I want to do is take it all the way with you
It's your life, it's your life

All I want to do is take it all the way with you
It's your life, it's your life, it's your life

They say that we don't have a chance
We're victims of unjust romance
But they could'nt see the truth in their hands

We don't have to live like they do
We'll run away if we have to
And we'll start a life that's shining and new
That's shining and new

Call your mama
Call your papa
Go on and call the preacher
Hold on hold on

Call your mama
Call your papa
Call the preacher
Hold on hold on

Little girl's eyes

All I have
And all I do
Cannot compare
To the love of you

You make me feel alive
You are my highest high
All I can do is smile
When I look in my little girl's eyes

When I look in my little girl's eyes X4

You're my star
And when I'm far
You're not alone
'Cause your heart's my home

You are my biggest prize
So beautiful and so wise
I can see the woman from within my child
When I look in my little girl's eyes

When I look in my little girl's eyes X4

You make me feel alive
And you are my highest high
All I want to do when I come into the room is see her smile
When I look in my little girl's eyes

When I look in my little girl's eyes X4

You're my flavor

The way you love me
Is like a needle in my vein
When you're not around me
You know it just don't feel the same

And I've waited a long time
Just to feel the way I do
Just give me the reason
And I will be all over you

'Cause you're my flavor of love
You're my flavor I'm dreaming of
You're my flavor of love
You're my flavor I'm dreaming of

The way you touch me
Somehow it takes away the pain
And now I'm a junkie

And you are what I wanna do
You give me this feeling
You always make me feel brand new

Can we find a reason

Is there anyone out there
Willing to try ?
Or are we satisfied with just getting by ?

We've hurt mother nature
Can't you see her she's crying
We've robbed and we've raped her and taken her child

And oh oh oh can we find a reason ?
Just think about it
And oh oh oh can we find a reason
To live another season ?

We're fighting more battles
Everyday we're alive
We should be rejoicing
But instead we cry

This world's so polluted
You would think we were blind
We poison our children
Before they're defined

And oh oh oh can we find a reason ?
Just think about it
And oh oh oh can we find a reason
To live another season ? yeah

Excuse me for saying
'Cause I've never been shy
But if we don't stop this
We sho'nuff goin' die

Yes I hope we can make it
'Cause this river's run dry
Now our only battle
Will be to survive, hey

And oh oh oh can we find a reason ?
Come on and think about it
And oh oh oh can we find a reason
To live another season ?
Yeah it's the new millennium

Yeah yeah yeah
Can we find a reason
To live another season ?

And oh oh oh can we find a reason ?
To live another season ?
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah ...
It's the new millennium
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah ...
Can we find a reason
To live another season ?

Battlefield of love

I am a soldier
A casualty of love
I've been from heaven
All the way to hell
I've had a journey
Much more than I can tell
I've got stories
Much more than I can sell

All this mass confusion
Causes chaos in my brain
I'm on the battlefield
The battlefield of love
With all of the illusions
I won't ever be the same
I'm on the battlefield
The battlefield of love

I'm a prisoner
A prisoner of love
I have been captured
And kept underground
I have been tortured
But I don't make a sound
'Cause I know one day
One day I will be found

All this mass confusion
Causes chaos in my brain
I'm on the battlefield
The battlefield of love
With all of the illusions
I won't ever be the same
I'm on the battlefield
The battlefield of love

If I could fall in love

When I was young
I fell in love
She was a goddess
With a world inside of her mind
When she moved on
Something went wrong
She took my power
And the love I had inside
Now that I found you
I don't know how to

If I could fall
In love again
I'd fall in love with you

If I could change
A grain of sand
Into a pearl I would

I pray in time
I'll come to find
Away to break through
And save this heart of mine
You've waited long
If you can't hold on
I wouldn't blame you
I don't think I'd be that strong
What am I to do
If I can't have you

If I could fall
In love again
I'd fall in love with you

If I could change
A grain of sand
Into a pearl I would

You love me so
Even though I don't know
How do you deal
With a man like me

If I could fall
In love again
I'd fall in love with you

If I could change
A grain of sand
Into a pearl I would
I would, I would, I would

Yesterday Is Gone (My Dear Kay)

I'm sorry your situation
Has let you down
I know that things did not go as planned
'Cause in this time you're feeling alone and sad
This is what you must understand

There is a way
Yesterday  is gone
It's a new day
Yesterday is gone
Yesterday is gone
Yesterday is gone
My dear Kay

You can't get nowhere
Staying at home and crying
You can't go on living in the past
The one thing constant is that there is always change
Not everything in life's meant to last

There is a way
Yesterday  is gone
It's a new day
Yesterday is gone
Yesterday is gone
Yesterday is gone
My dear Kay

Stillness of Heart

I'm out here on the street
There's no one left to meet
The things that were so sweet
No longer move  my feet
But I keep trying
I keep on trying

All that I want is
Stillness of heart
So I can start
To find my way
Out of the dark
And into your heart

I got more than I can eat
A life that can't be beat
Yet still I feel this heat
I'm feeling incomplete
What am I buying?
My soul is crying

All that I want is
Stillness of heart
So I can start
To find my way
Out of the dark
And into your heart

Where's the love?
What is this world we live in?
Where's the love ?
We've got to keep on giving
Where's the love ?
What happened to forgiving ?
Anyone ?

All that I want is
Stillness of heart
So I can start
To find my way
Out of the dark
And into your heart

Believe in me

Where's the love we had ?
When did it go bad ?
Or am I just insecure ?
I give all I can
Baby I'm your man
Tell me what you're in this for
Remind me

I can't go on
I know not what to do
My heart is worn
I feel as If I'm through
Please believe in me
'Cause what I need is for you
To believe in me

Countless sleepless nights
Never ending fights
i'm trying to make your dreams come true
I will sacrifice to find paradise
But I need to know you're behind me

I can't go on
I know not what to do
My heart is worn
I feel as If I'm through
Please believe in me
'Cause what I need is for you
To believe in me

I can't go on
I know not what to do
My heart is worn
I feel as If I'm through
Please believe in me
'Cause what I need is for you
To believe in me

I can't go on
I know not what to do
My heart is worn
I feel as If I'm through
Please believe in me
'Cause what I need is for you
To believe in me
To believe in me
To believe in me
To believe in me

Pay for play

She said I want the money
I know you want it honey
Your skies will not be sunny
If you don't bring it home to me
Don't want to hear your crying
'Cause baby I'm not trying
To wait for your dreams to fly in
Then she smiled and said to me

Well I don't believe in what you do
And I don't believe in what you say
I don't  believe in you
You've got to pay the price
If you want to play

Well I don't believe in what you do
And I don't believe in what you say
I don't  believe in you
You've got to pay the price
If you want to play

You told me that you loved me
Was it just a charade ?
Were you not thinking of me ?
When are we going to get paid?
I have been waiting all the time
And I'm about to fade
You better make that money
Do you hear what I am saying ?

Well I don't believe in what you do
And I don't believe in what you say
I don't  believe in you
You've got to pay the price
If you want to play

Well I don't believe in what you do
And I don't believe in what you say
I don't  believe in you
You've got to pay the price
If you want to play

A million miles away

You think I'm cool
But I am not
You think that I am Nonchalant
You think I'm hard
That I lay the part
Don't be fooled
You are my heart
Oh Babe i'm just so tired of being on the run

Babe when I can't feel your touch
And we've lost another day
Seems like a million miles away
I wander in the dark
Looking for somewhere to stay
Seems like I'm a million miles away

Without love what have we got
All these things don't mean a lot
Let's disregard the past and start
A new fire
From this old spark
Let's take this love
And make it hotter than the sun

Babe when I can't feel your touch
And we've lost another day
Seems like a million miles away
I wander in the dark
Looking for somewhere to stay
Seems like I'm a million miles away

What am I looking for ?
What am I dreaming of ?
When you are the woman that I really love

Babe when I can't feel your touch
And we've lost another day
Seems like a million miles away
I wander in the dark
Looking for somewhere to stay
Seems like I'm a million miles away

God Save Us All

We need a leader
We can't seem to help ourselves
Fighting and lying
We can't seem to let it go
We live each day
On a small piece of borrowed time
Why aren't we trying
To enjoy this crazy ride
What are we gonna do about it ?

God Save Us All
God Save Us All
God Save Us All
If we really try
Maybe we can make it

We need a teacher
We must learn to see the light
Let's get together
This world needs us to do right
There's too much poverty, sickness
There's pain and strife
Why aren't we trying
To improve this thing called life
What are we gonna do about it ?

God Save Us All
God Save Us All
God Save Us All
If we really try
Maybe we can make it

Dig in

It's time to face and come-on in and join the party
Life has been waiting for you to care
Don't try to fake it, jump on in and get it started
There's so much lovin for you to share !

There is nowhere to run
There is no way to hide
Dont let it beat you
Say 'nice to meet you' and 'bye'

Once you dig in
You'll find it coming out the other side
And once you dig in
You'll find you'll have yourself a good time

Wake up and shake it, you did'nt make your contribution
There ain't no time for you to spare
If you ain't part of the game then how can you find a solution
Nobody said that it would be fair

When the mountain is high
Just look up to the sky
Ask God to teach you
Then persevere with a smile
Yeah yeah yeah

Once you dig in
You'll find it coming out the other side
And once you dig in
You'll find you'll have yourself a good time
Once you dig in
You'll find it coming out the other side
And once you dig in
You'll find you'll have yourself a good time

Once you dig in
You'll find it coming out the other side
And once you dig in
You'll find you'll have yourself a good time
Once you dig in
You'll find it coming out the other side
And once you dig in
You'll find you'll have yourself a good time

Once you dig in
Yeah yeah yeah
And once you dig in
You're gonna have yourself a good time

Once you dig in
Once you dig in
You'll find it coming out the other side

And once you dig in

You Were in My Heart

I want to be a better man
Lord knows that I'm trying
I want to keep the master's plan
But sometimes things get wild
Demons sleep with me in bed
I can feel their fire
When darkness gets around my head
Sometimes I go blind

But you were in my heart
While the evil eye was searching out was staring at me
But you were in my heart
While the maids of doom, were reaching out and tempting me

The world can give you everything
Anything you want
Money, fame
And all it brings
Whatever turns you on
But your bloods running through my veins
And I am standing tall
But even though you took my place
You are somehow bound to fall

But you were in my heart
While the evil eye was searching out was staring at me
But you were in my heart
While the maids of doom, were reaching out and tempting me

I was walking down the street today
Just as somebody blew the doors off of the B of A
Just then I head them call my name
As I was thrown against the car
I was being framed

All units we've got our man
We've got the bank robber man
We don't need no reason
You're going in the can
You look like the bank robber man

I think you misunderstand
Do you think that I am the one that did it
Just because I'm tan?
Just then the officer at hand said
I don't give a damn that you are in a rock and roll band

All units we've got our man
We've got the bank robber man
We don't need no reason
You're going in the can
You look like the bank robber man

Just tell me what's going on ?
Can you tell me what I did wrong ?
Does busting me make you feel strong ?
Make you feel strong

All units we've got our man
We've got the bank robber man
We don't need no reason
You're going in the can
You look like the bank robber man

Let's get high

Let's go out
On an ocean ride
Leave all your cares
And the past behind
Let's venture out
To a deserted isle
Let's get in touch
With what is alive

Oh I love you
Oh it's wonderful
Oh it's magical
Let's get high
Let's get high
Let's get high
High on this feeling of love

Let's go out
On an ocean ride
We'll tell no one
We'll just go and hide
Just spread your wings
And go with the tide
Let our love be our one desire

Oh I love you
Oh it's wonderful
Oh it's magical
Let's get high
Let's get high
Let's get high
High on this feeling of love

Oh I love you
Oh it's wonderful
Oh it's magical
Let's get high
Let's get high
Let's get high
High on this feeling of love

I Don't Want To Be A Star

I don't want to be a star
Just want my chevy and an old guitar
I don't want to be a star
I don't need the fat cigar

My friends wonder what is wrong with me
'Cause I don't get off on my fame
I got so much confusion now
Sometimes I don't even know my name

I don't want to be a star
Just want my chevy and an old guitar
I don't want to be a star
I don't need the fat cigar

Too many distractions run through my brain
So many girls they start to look the same
Too many options no time to choose
Too many clothes, too many shoes

I've had the world I've done it upside down
I played the part and I've been the clown
Now it's my time, it's a brand new day
To be myself in a different way

I don't want to be a star
Just want my chevy and an old guitar
I don't want to be a star
I don't need the fat cigar

I got to meet all the wonderful people
I drank with Dylan boy did we act a fool
I got to meet all the fabulous people
I got high with Jagger, it was really cool

I don't want to be a star
Just want my chevy and an old guitar
I don't want to be a star
I don't need the fat cigar

Never, never, never
Never, never, never
Never, never, never
Never, never, never, hey

I say never no no

California

I was converted to the other side
From the day I'd gotten there
I met a girl who took me on a ride
I was young I had no cares

When I moved to California
California

She played me records I had never heard
While we toked on purple hairs
Who, Zeppelin, Beatles
Kiss, The Rolling Stones
While we played guitars in air

When I moved to California
California
California
California love !

Venice Beach and P.O.P.
Station 26 was free

Jeff Ho and Horizons west
Dogtown Skates they were the best

Hang Ten, O.P. were the brands
Don't forget the two-tone Vans

I miss the Apple and my schoolyard boys
Nothing ever will compare
But now I skateboard
With my surfer girl
And we really are a pair

When I moved to California
California
California
California love !

Where Are We Runnin'?

Fast lane
High speed
On the grind
24/7

No time
Always runnin' here and there
Chasin' the money

So much jibber jabber's
Cloggin' up our soul

Where are we runnin'
We need some time to clear our heads
Where are we runnin'
Keep on working 'til we're dead
Where are we runnin'
Oo wee oo wee oo
Where are we runnin' now

In style
Profile
Got to buy
The new Cavalli

Keep the skin tight
And the booty in the air
Don't stop the party

The road is paved but narrow
I hope we all get home

Where are we runnin'?
We need some time to clear our heads
Where are we runnin'?
Keep on working 'til we're dead
Where are we runnin'?
Oo wee oo wee oo
Where are we runnin' now

Baptized

I don't want to look around
And be turned to stone
All my darkest days awoken
I'm looking for a new way
Can't make it on my own
Lead me to a place wide open

I need a love that takes me higher
So high I'm never coming down

I don't want to know emptiness
Take me down to the water
Wanna be baptized in your love

Far away from the loneliness
Take my heart and wash away the fear
Let me be baptized in your love

Everybody's going down
They end up all alone
Far too many words unspoken
I know I gotta be there
I'm ready to be shown
The path of righteousness unbroken

I need a love that takes me higher
So high I'm never coming down

I don't want to know emptiness
Take me down to the water
Wanna be baptized in your love

Far away from the loneliness
Take my heart and wash away the fear
Let me be baptized in your love

I would be a fool to let you go
With you I'm reborn
I'm no longer torn
Yeah
I refuse to lose my heart and soul
I have to be strong

I don't want to know emptiness
Take me down to the water
Wanna be baptized in your love

Far away from the loneliness
Take my heart and wash away the fear
Let me be baptized in your love

Baptized, baptized
Wanna be baptized in your love

I don't want to know emptiness
Take me down to the water
Wanna be baptized in your love (wanna be...)

Far away from the loneliness
Take my heart and wash away the fear
Wanna be baptized in your love

I don't want to know emptiness
Take me down to the water
Wanna be baptized in your love

Far away from the loneliness
Take my heart and wash away the fear
Wanna be baptized in your love

*** Thanx a lot to Dirk & Alex for this one ***

Flash

The opportunity's takin' me over
I'm gonna put on a mask
I've got to be outrageous for my fans
I am not gonna waste this moment
Because these moments don't last
So tonight I will shake it and show my ass

Flash
Makes me feel good
Feel like a queen
And it gives me all the panache
That I want
That I need
And it'll all be over in a flash

Roll out the carpet give me some exposure
'Cause soon I'll be the past
But anyway I came here to tell you 'bout my plans
Well

Let's keep this moving while people still notice
'Cause my time's going fast
And when it's over, it's over
'Cause I've got no class
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Flash
Makes me feel good
Make me feel like a queen
And it gives me all the panache
That I want
And baby that I need
And it'll all be over in a flash

Flash
Makes me feel good
Make me feel like a queen
And it gives me all the panache
That I want
And baby that I need
And it'll all be over in a flash

And it gives me all the panache
That I want

And it'll all be over in a flash

What Did I Do With My Life?

Did I work on the battlefield?
Did I do what I thought was right?
Did I do all that I could do?
Did I put up a good fight?

Did I love all that I should?
To everyone in my sight?
What did I do with my life?

Did I exercise giving
And forgiveness with all my might?
Did I honor my freedom
And did I live in the light?

Did I cherish my moments?
Did I take a good enough bite?
What did I do with my life?

You can live any way you wanna
All you have to do is dance
Achieve anything you thought of
You just have to take the chance
You can fall in love with your life
'Cause that truly is romance
What did I do with my life?

Did I learn what I came to learn?
Did I listen with my heart?
Did I do what I came to do?
And how did I play the part?
Did I see all the beauty?
Because living is an art
What did I do with my life?

You can live any way you wanna
All you have to do is dance
Achieve anything you thought of
You just have to take the chance
Learn to love your life
'Cause that truly is romance
Oh what did I do with my life?

What did I do?
Say it again
What did I do
With my life?
Oh
What did I do?

What did I do?
With my life
What did I do?
What did I do?

Storm

Lenny Kravitz :

My life has taken me beyond the planets and the stars
And you're the only one that could take me this far
I'll be forever searching for your love

I walked away but I was wrong
You're the one that keeps me strong
You're the fire that keeps me warm
How will I get through this storm?

At night
I pray before I sleep in hope of finding you
I've opened up my heart, I want you to come through
I close my eyes, I'm searching for your love

Oh, I walked away but I was wrong
You're the one that keeps me strong
You're the fire that keeps me warm
How will I get through this storm?

Jay-z :

I got the bounce Lenny
Check me out
Brooklyn's bad boy back again
Feet hit the ground runnin' and my back's to the wind
Angels on my shoulders, head in the clouds
No, I'm not rappin', I'm just thinkin' real loud
My karma's my armor, my charm and wit
Is like a lethal bomb, I'm warm and shit
And I did bad for good but when you're trapped in the 'hood
You do worse for less, homie earth's a test
Only God can judge me
My heart ain't ugly
But the thoughts that I drop is heavy
Try budge me
Mama loved me, pop left me
Still the homies call me lucky lefty
I'm flashy and bentley
Deceptively smart
I make hustlin' heaven and pimpin' an art
Long as I know that I'm blessed
'Cause I'm loved in depth
I can walk through the water and not get wet
I'm that fresh

I walked away but I was wrong (I was wrong)
You're the one that keeps me strong (Keeps me strong)
You're the fire that keeps me warm (You're the fire that keeps me warm)
How will I get through this storm?

Jay-Z:
There you have it
Young hov
Lenny Kravitz
Not your average
Get your umbrella
It's raining macs and broads
All grace to God

I walked away but I was wrong (I walked away but I was wrong)
You're the one that keeps me strong (You're the one that keeps me strong)
You're the fire that keeps me warm (Keeps me warm)
How will I get through this storm? (Oh yeah yeah yeah)

The Other Side

Where do I live
Where is my wife?
I am alone
What's life worth living for?

Where am I going and what am I looking towards?
Where are my kids having their fights?
Calling my name so I can kiss their sores

I'm just a man on the run
It's a fucking bore
So father can you tell me again
Father can you tell me again
That I'm livin'
'Til I meet you on that day
On the other side

I'm internationally known
With platinum and gold
I've got millions sold
But after the party, I'm left standing in the cold
I would like to be a simple man
I'd buy me a farm and live off the land
Could a wife and some children be better than being in band?

So father can you tell me again
Father can you tell me again that I'm livin'
'Til I meet you on that day on the other side

On the other side

So father can you tell me again
Father can you tell me again that I'm livin'
'Til I meet you on that day on the other side

On the other side

Destiny

Sometimes I think I've lost my mind
I thought I left my past behind
I live my life and all I know is
Follow your dream and don't let go

No one can live for me
No one can see the things I see
I walk this road
No one can tell me how to be
It's my destiny

There is no right, there is no wrong
There is no place where I belong
I've done my time
I've held it strong and
My life is all about this song

No one can live for me
No one can see the things I see
I walk this road
No one can tell me how to be
It's my destiny

If I threw them all away
Would it change?
No
I would live my life again, rearranged
There's a magic in my heart
That I feel
Don't you know that God is love
And it's real

No one can live for me
No one can see the things I see
I walk this road
No one can tell me how to be
It's my destiny

My destiny
My destiny
My destiny
It's my destiny

Uncharted terrain

When I was just a boy
Granddaddy sat me on his knee
He told me that he loved me and that we were family,
We spoke about the world and all the possibilities
Then he held me in his arms
He said : “Be what you want to be”

He paved a way for me to follow
Uncharted terrain now had a lane
It's how I got over

When I became a man
Granddaddy said : ”Come walk with me”
He said : “Being a man comes with responsibility
And always keep your word to the best of your ability"
When he looked me in my eyes
He said : “It's time to set you free”

He paved a way for me to follow
Uncharted terrain now had a lane
It's how I got over

He paved a way for me to follow
Uncharted terrain now had a lane
It's how I got over

He paved a way for me to follow
Uncharted terrain now had a name
It's how I got over

 

It's Time for a Love Revolution

Love Revolution

This is the time
This is the vibe
Don't you want to get onto the ride
Come on inside
From the outside
The truth will set you free and you will find
That there is a love
That won't let you down
And it always holds ground
Wear your crown
This love will never leave you
This love will never let you go

It is time for a love revolution
It is time for a new constitution

You are a child of the most high
There's nothing you can't do and that's no lie

To move what you can't see so don't be blind
'Cause there is a love
That won't let you down and it always holds ground
Wear your crown
This love will never leave you
This love will never let you go

It is time for a love revolution
It is time, it is time, for a new constitution

It is time, it is time, for a love revolution
Love revolution
It is time, it is time,  for a new constitution

It is time, it is time, for a love revolution
A love revolution
It is time, it is time, for a new constitution

It is time, it is time, for a love revolution
A love revolution
It is time, it is time, for a new constitution

To take on this world and rock steady
So come on, bring it on

Bring it on
Oh bring it on

Good morning

Good morning
Nice to see you
How you've been
The beginning of another lovely day
Oh oh oh oh oh
Good morning

Get up put your feet on the ground
Wake up to an ice cold shower
The coffee's hot but the cream is sour

So get up
Top of the morning to you
Good morning to you
Hey
Oh oh oh oh oh
Good morning

Good morning
Can I walk you to the train
Would you like to get a bagel on the way
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Good morning

Get on and we go downtown
Get off and go in the tower
The boss is old but he has the power

So we're up
Top of the morning to you
Good morning to you
Hey
Oh oh oh oh oh oh

It's another day in the world in which we live
I've got to find a way
To get past what I can't forgive
And no matter what
We've got to try to move along
So sing a song
You can't go wrong

Good morning
Nice to see you
How you been
The beginning of another lovely day
Oh oh oh oh oh
Good morning
Good morning
Good morning...

Love love love

Don't need no television
Don't need no movie stars
Don't need no custom private planes
Don't need no politicians
Don't need no stocks and bonds
Don't need no cars or boats or trains

Don't need no diamond jewellery
Don't need no rare cigars
Don't need no magnums of champagne
Don't need no penthouse mansion
Don't need no Paris fashion
Don't need no shiny golden chain

There ain't nothing you can give me
I'm already there
I got love
I got love love
I got love love love

Don't need no plastic surgery
Don't need no country clubs
Don't need no butlers, cooks or maids
Don't need no marijuana
Don't need no ecstasy
Don't need no blow or sleeping aids

Don't need no personal trainer
Don't need no fortune teller
Don't need no job that gets me paid
Don't need no more religion
Don't need no air condition
Don't need no one to get me laid

There ain't nothing you can give me
I'm already there
I got love
I got love love
I got love love love

Your ways are never ever static
You're always keeping it erratic
I want you to know I'm emphatic
About your love that's enigmatic
You, me and God makes three
My eyes are open I see
Oh baby don't you understand

Don't need no private island
Don't need no chandelier
Don't need no million dollar view
Don't need no helicopter
Don't need no magazine
Don't need nobody else but you

If you want it

Don't you let it all pass you by
Looking through life's window pane
Don't you sit around wasting time
That would be a crying shame

There's a power that's deep inside
And it burns just like a flame
Just believe and you'll see that God
Will shower you like pouring rain

If you want it
You can change your world today
If you want it
Just break free and walk away

There's a reason for you to explore
Why you're here, what do you say
And the beauty is that you're the one
Who controls just how you play

There's a choice that you need to make
One is ore and one is clay
So drop your chains and take up your cross
And let Jesus make your way
Oh, oh, oh

If you want it
You can change your world today
If you want it
Just break free and walk away

If you want it, want it
You can change your evil ways
If you want it, want it
Just break free and walk away

If you want it, want it
You can change your world today
If you want it, want it
Just break free and walk away

If you want it, want it
You can change your evil ways
If you want it, want it
Just break free and walk away

I'll Be Waiting

He broke your heart
He took your soul
You hurt inside
'Cause there's a hole

You need some time
To be alone
Then you will find
What you've always known

I'm the one who really loves you baby
I've been knocking at your door

As long as I'm living
I'll be waiting
As long as I'm breathing
I'll be there
Whenever you call me
I'll be waiting
Whenever you need me
I'll be there

I've seen you cry
Into the night
I feel your pain
Can I make it right
I realize there's no end in sight
Yet still I wait

I love the rain

The clouds are forming
She comes again
I'll go and walk with her
Along the Seine

Soon she'll be storming
Here comes the wind
But that don't bother me
'Cause she's my friend

I love the rain
I love the rain

I've held our memories
All of these years
So many good times
And many tears

I share my dreams with her
I share my fears
So I just walk with her
Until she veers
Off in the distance

I love the rain
I love the rain

I love, I love
I love the rain
Oh

Just as she always does
She has to leave
With her she takes my heart
Into her breeze

Sometimes I think that she
Just likes to tease
Still I'll be waiting
For her reprise

I love the rain
I love the rain
I love the rain
I love the rain

I love, I love, I love
I love the rain
Oh yeah

I love, I love, I love
I love the rain
Oh yeah

A long and sad goodbye

Papa
Who's to blame
Why you never had your fortune and fame
Papa what did you gain
To leave the love you had for a two-bit dame

Papa
Why did you turn your back
Why didn't you stay on track
Why did you leave and make her cry

Papa
You meant the world to me
Why did you abandon me
Now it's a long and sad goodbye

Papa
What is this game
With all that cheating you did you're gonna go insane

Papa
I am in pain
'Cause on the day that you left
You said I'd do the same

Papa
Why did you turn your back
Why didn't you stay on track
Why did you leave and make her cry

Papa
You meant the world to me
Why did you abandon me
Now it's a long and sad goodbye

Papa, Papa, Papa
No
Oh Papa, Papa, oh papa
No

Oh Papa
Why did you turn your back
Why didn't you stay on track
Why did you leave and make her cry

Oh Papa
You meant the world to me
Why did you abandon me
Now it's a long and sad goodbye

Papa, Papa, Papa
No

Oh Papa
Oh Papa
Oh Papa
No no no, stay

Dancin' til dawn

The way she moves
Really talks to me
I'm going out of my mind
`Cause the way that she winds
Is truly divine

She takes her time
As she approaches me
Then she gives me the sign
As she moves her behind
That only God would design

Like a bullet from a gun
The DJ makes a run
When she feels a beat my baby
I can't get her off the floor
She keeps me dancin' til dawn

The lights are low
She likes to dance for me
It's making me high
'Cause the look in her eye
Is hot as July
Hey

The night is young
Gold bar's the place to be
The music is right
'Cause the dj is tight
Zappa into Barry White, yeah!

Like a bullet from a gun
The DJ makes a run
When she feels a beat my baby
I can't get her off the floor
She keeps me dancin' til dawn

Like a bullet from a gun
The DJ makes a run
When she feels a beat my baby
I can't get her off the floor
She keeps me dancin' til dawn

Like a bullet from a gun
The DJ makes a run
When she feels a beat my baby
I can't get her off the floor
She keeps me dancin' til dawn

Like a bullet from a gun
The DJ makes a run
When she feels a beat my baby
I can't get her off the floor
She keeps me dancin' til dawn

Like a bullet from a gun
The DJ makes a run
When she feels a beat my baby
I can't get her off the floor
She keeps me dancin' til dawn
She keeps me dancing

Like a bullet from a gun
The DJ makes a run
When she feels a beat my baby
I can't get her off the floor
She keeps me dancin' til dawn


This moment is all there is

Will there be tomorrow
Tell me how can you be sure
There ain't always next season
There ain't always an open door

Life is dear, don't you waste it
The future no one can see
So step aside and let it be
Tomorrow may wash away
Don't put off what you do today
Take advantage while you are here
'Cause this moment is all there is

Do you smell the flowers
While they are still here in bloom
Does there have to be a reason
If you don't think we'll be gone real soon

Life is here can you taste it
The future no one can see
So step aside and let it be
Tomorrow may wash away
Don't put off what you do today
Take advantage while you are here
'Cause this moment is all there is

Don't live in fear and weakness
Don't live and hide it all, does your
Your ability to taste the sweetness, sweetness
And that is what we are here for

Life is real, don't you fake it
Oh the future no one can see
So step aside and let it be
Tomorrow may wash away
Don't put off what you do today
Take advantage while you are here
'Cause this moment is all there is, there is

This moment
The future no one can see
So step aside and just let it be
Don't wait for tomorrow

A new door

I can see that look in your eyes
You're in need of something you can't find
You're tired of holding on to the pain
You haven't got the strength to hold the reigns
You are out of lane

I know you can't take it
I know you can't take it anymore
I know you can't fake it
I know you can't fake it anymore
Now it's time for you to open a new door

You fool yourself when you live a lie
You spend all of your time getting high
But drunken nights won't bury your fears
All the drinks you had just turned to tears
For too many years

I know you can't take it
I know you can't take it anymore
I know you can't fake it
I know you can't fake it anymore
Now it's time for you to open a new door

When you think that nobody cares
Close your eyes and know that God is there
And if you reach out He'll do the same
Just ask for what you need in Jesus name
Don't be ashamed

I know you can't take it
I know you can't take it anymore
I know you can't fake it
I know you can't fake it anymore
Now it's time for you to open a new door

Now it's time for you to open a new door

Black & White America

Black And White America

Martin Luther King, he had a vision
And that's a fact
He died so we could see that was his mission
So don't look back

There is no division, don't you understand
The future looks as though it has come around
And maybe we have finally found our common ground
We're the children of one father
If you're looking back don't bother
We're black and white America

In nineteen sixty three my father married
A black woman
And when they walked the street they were in danger
Look what you've done

But they just kept on walking forward hand in hand
The future looks as though it has come around
And maybe we have finally found our common ground
We're the children of one father
If you're looking back don't bother
We're black and white America

There is no division, don't you understand

If you're looking back don't bother
We're black and white America

Why do I keep running from the truth
I can see it in my eyes
Where's the happiness that I once knew

I'm so tired of this place
I wanna hear your voice
I wanna see your face
I can't escape the way I feel about you

I don't wanna know another day without you
Won't you call my name
'Cause I can't be without you

I keep my head to the sky
Waiting for the day that you'll come through
I am free within my mind
'Cause I know that it is coming soon

I'm so tired of this place
I wanna hear your voice
I wanna see your face
I can't escape the way I feel about you

I don't wanna know another day without you
Won't you call my name

Looking Back On Love

Looking back on love through a broken old TV
Looking back on love but it's kind of hard to see
I'm just trying to find the place where I should be
Looking back on love, oh yeah

Looking back on love though the players have all changed
Looking back on love even though we're all estranged
Now what can we do with the feelings we've exchanged
Oh, oh yeah, looking back on love

Looking back on love in the paintings on the wall
Looking back on love it is cracked and about to fall
I should be running like a baby I still crawl, oh yeah
Looking back on love, oh

Looking back on love like a rerun in my mind
Looking back on love but it seems as if I'm blind
Holding memories like the sun that always shine
Now I need to find a love I can call mine
Oh, oh, looking back on love
Yeah

Looking back
Looking back on love

Looking back on love, wonder if I will survive
Looking back on love, it is time for me to dive
Once I go beneath will I finally be alive
Looking back on love
Looking back on love

Life Ain't Ever Been Better Than Is Is Now

I woke up this morning feeling
Thankful and grateful
So I got a little something that I want to say
You know like a little prayer
Thank you
Thank you God that I am able
Got my shelter and food on the table
Got my health, don't need no pride
'Cause everything I need you gave me inside
Life ain't ever been better than it is now
I ain't lonely, I'm by myself
'Cause when you got the lord you got all the wealth
Check me out I am sailing
It's my time and there's no way than I'm failing
Life ain't ever been better than it is now

I know the world is really crazy
But that's the time we got to stop being lazy
We got to stand, stand up for what's right
We got to separate the darkness from the light
Life ain't ever been better than it is now
Life ain't ever been better than it is now

Blow Shorty !

I've seen the world, I've seen it all
We're headed for the wall and we're gonna fall
Like the days way back in Rome
We're stepping right inside of the danger zone
But life ain't ever been better than it is now
Life ain't ever been better than it is now

You see people come and people go
And people always get just what they saw
But I believe in this thing called love
And our ability to rise above
Life ain't ever been better than it is now
Life ain't ever been better than it is now

Life ain't ever been better
Life ain't ever been better
Life ain't ever been better than it is now

Oh alright now
It's warfare out there
So we got to suit up and put on our armour
Headed for the frontline
It's gonna be alright
It's gonna be alright
Just stay thankful and grateful
Doing it like James Brown
James Brown

The Faith Of A Child

Let's work together, we are one big family
Joined forever like the branches of a tree
In this world we're all neighbors, there is no immunity
Hurt one member you hurt the whole community

We can turn around
Peace can still be found
It starts in your mind
Have the faith of a child

We're facing problems at a catastrophic rate
Folks are desperate, so many wars are on our plate
We're using religion and with it we're pushing hate
Wonder if there'll be time to change our fate

We can turn around
Peace can still be found
It starts in your mind
Have the faith of a child

I know we can make it
I know
I know we can make it
Why can't we work it on out

I know we can make it
I know
I know we can make it

You know anything that the mind can conceive
We can achieve
So why don't we put our minds together
And meditate on peace
With the faith of a child

We can turn around
Peace can still be found
It starts in your mind
Have the faith of a child

We can turn around
Peace can still be found
It starts in your mind
Have the faith of a child
Have the faith of a child
Have the faith of a child

Lenny :
You're making me feel that everything is alright
You're my sunflower
You're my sunflower

In a world that's crumbling, all around us everyday you are
All the inspiration that I need to find my way

You're my sunflower

Drake :
I'm not that good with words, but I'm a try my best
Look, I don't ever wanna make you mad girl
I just wanna have you see you know the things young men are hesitant to have, girl
A little you a little me and someone else, good lord that's a winner right there
But we really got a story to tell, it can't finish right there
I used to wonder what my old girl doing right now
Ever since you came into my life
Every time I think it'd be good to call her
I just think about you and it'd make me think twice, ah yeah
Yeah I know we've been through a couple things
You know a couple things, what are we to do
But you make me feel good, you love me for me and you love me for you
Come on

You're making me feel that everything is alright
You're my sunflower
You're my sunflower

You're making me feel that everything is alright
You're my sunflower
You're my sunflower...

Dream

You can take away my freedom
But my spirit will run free
You can take away my vision
That don't mean that I can't see

Well all I have to say
Is it doesn't work that way
What lives inside of me
Will find its way to be

It all starts with a dream
The dawn of a new day
The God inside of you
Will always see you through
So hold on to your dream
No one can take the dream
From your heart
From your heart

You can try to shake my reason
But you'll never take me down
You can fill me full of bullets
But I'm built on solid ground

So all I have to say
Is I'm not going away
It's much bigger than me
God's will will always be

It all starts with a dream
The dawn of a new day
The God inside of you
Will always see you through
So hold on to your dream
No one can take the dream
From your heart
From your heart

Amen, amen, amen

You will never take my passion
'Cause it always will remain
Even if I lose this battle, oh yeah
It's just blood inside my veins

That's all I have to say
The dream won't go away
You can't steal from me
What God gave me for free

It all starts with a dream
The dawn of a new day
The God inside of you
Will always see you through
So hold on to your dream
No one can take the dream
From your heart
From your heart

Amen

Push

It's barely morning
Cars are roaring
The city's moving fast
My momma's calling
But I'm stalling
Living in the past
It's time to face the world in front of me
And make the best of this reality

I'm gonna push my life today
Push to make a better way
Gonna push 'cause I got to carry on

I'm gonna push the clouds away
Push so I can see the way
Gonna push until I find my way home

The jungle's swarming
Beasts are crawling
They're all along my path
But God's adoring, love is pouring
I'm gonna take a bath
I am swimming in a violent sea
Trying to find out who I'm gonna be

I'm gonna push my life today
Push to make a better way
Gonna push 'cause I got to carry on

I'm gonna push the clouds away
Push so I can see the way
Gonna push until I find my way home

I can feel it come together
I know God has a plan, oh yeah
Oh I see the kingdom through the shadows
But it's all gonna pass
I'm gonna push
'Cause my Lord ain't gonna let it last

I'm gonna push my life today
Push to make a better way
Gonna push 'cause I got to carry on, oh yeah

I'm gonna push the clouds away
Push so I can see the way
Gonna push until I find my way home
I'm gonna push 'till my Lord brings me home
Oh, oh yeah
'Till II find my way home

The Chamber

You killed a love that was once so strong
With no regret to that you did wrong
Should I stay and fight
Can we make this right

You look through me like on open door
Do I exist to you anymore
'Cause when I'm talking to you
There's someone else that you're hearing

I gave you all the love I had
And I almost gave you one more chance
Then you put one in the chamber
And shot my heart of glass
This time will be the last
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
You played your game, used me like a pawn
Check mate you're done and then you were gone
Did I move too fast
I thought we would last

Now that you're through I can't feel your soul
Where there was love lies an empty hole
'Cause when I make love to you
It's someone else that you're feeling

I gave you all the love I had
And I almost gave you one more chance
Then you put one in the chamber
And shot my heart of glass
This time will be the last

So many nights
I've been standing at the wall
Blind folded with cigarette
Waiting for the fall

I gave you all the love I had
And I almost gave you one more chance
Then you put one in the chamber
And shot my heart of glass
This time will be the last...

The Pleasure And The Pain

It's been a while since you've come around
I missed you so, you know you broke me down
Are we ready to give it one more try
Play on

While you were gone I tried to mend my heart
But I didn't know even where to start
I'd rather be with even when we fight

I'll take all you offer
Because it's all the same
The thorn with the flower
The pleasure and the pain
I'll climb up that mountain
Because it's you I gain
I can't live without it
The pleasure and the pain

I love the way that you keep it real
You're not afraid to tell me the deal
And you tell me when I'm wrong, when I'm tripping out
'Cause a man like me, needs a woman who
Will walk the walk and is a warrior too, but
With that comes the truth and there is no doubt
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
That I'll take all you offer
Because it's all the same
The thorn and the flower
The pleasure and the pain
I'll climb up the mountains
Because it's you I gain
I can't live without it
The pleasure and the pain

I think this time we can make it through
I'll still be me and you'll still be you
The only difference will be within our minds

I'll take all you offer
Because it's all the same
The thorn with the flower
The pleasure and the pain
I'll climb up that mountain
Because it's you I gain
I can't live without it
The pleasure and the pain

I'll take all you offer
Because it's all the same
The thorn and the flower
The pleasure and the pain
I'll climb up that mountain
Because it's you I gain
I can't live without it
The pleasure and the pain

I'll take all you offer
Because it's all the same
The thorn with the flower
The pleasure and the pain
I'll climb all the mountains
Because it's you I gain
I can't live without it
The pleasure and the pain

My guts are slowly bleeding
Don't leave me here to die

'Cause I need love

That I'll hold you near
Whisper "I still love you"
Until the day is here

Oh, I'm crying

Sweet Gitchey Rose

( Japanese Bonus Track )

Ebony hair
Emerald eyes
All I could do was stare

Fixed in a trance
Her serpent smile
Invited me to dance

She took my hand and led me to her lair
The smell of gumbo filled the humid air
Right then and there
I had my share

Sweet Gitchey Rose
Sweet Gitchey Rose
Sweet Gitchey Rose
Sweet Gitchey Rose

I had a plan
To steal her heart and be her only man
I'd buy her things
Find us a home where she could rest her wings

But all an eagle wants to do is fly
She doesn't stop or ask the question why
One day she leaves
With no goodbye

Sweet Gitchey Rose
Sweet Gitchey Rose
Sweet Gitchey Rose
Sweet Gitchey Rose

I wonder, could she ever be my queen
Could loving only me be her routine
You gotta let a brother dream, oh

Sweet Gitchey Rose
Sweet Gitchey Rose
Sweet Gitchey Rose
Sweet Gitchey Rose

Sweet Gitchey Rose
Sweet Gitchey Rose
Sweet Gitchey Rose
Sweet Gitchey Rose

How could I fall for such a tease
Yeah
Well, that's my own disease
Oh yeah

Can't Stop Thinkin' 'Bout You

( Japanese Bonus Track )

It gets old living in this jungle
And I've lost my way
I don't know what is real any longer
There's nothing more to say

But one thing is true
I'm in love with you

What I got to do

Ever since you went away
My whole world's been blue
And I just can't stop
Thinking about you

Thinking about you
Thinking about you, oh yeah
Thinking about you, thinking about you
Thinking about you

I was never able to forgive myself
For the things I did
I thought, I thought I was a man
But I was just a kid

But now I know it's true
(I know it's true)
I'm still in love with you
(I'm in love with you)
And I'm gonna do
What I got to do

Ever since you went away

Lift Me Out Of My Head

( Japanese Bonus Track )

My mind keeps going in circles
Can you understand
This situation is murder
I need a helping hand

Can you lift me out of my head
Before I float away
Can you lift me out of my head
The pain is strong
So hurry along
Before I'm dead

Some people say that I'm crazy
Sometimes I think I am
I just can't go any further
I'm sinking in the sand

Can you lift me out of my head
Before I float away
Can you lift me out of my head
The pain is strong
So hurry along
Before I'm dead

Before I'm dead
Yeah
Before I'm dead

It Won't Feel The Same

( Japanese Bonus Track )

I could make a billion dollars
Build a castle by the sea
Watch the clouds go by for hours
Live a fantasy where everything is how I see

I could have the power
Of the world and all it brings
But it won't feel the same
It won't feel the same

I'd live in a great big tower
In a world of luxury
But it won't feel the same
It won't feel the same
The same without you

I could walk this earth forever
I could have eternal life
I want you right there beside me, yeah
'Cause I need your strength
And baby, how I need your life

I could have the power
Of the world and all it brings
But it won't feel the same
It won't feel the same

I'd live in a great big tower
In a world of luxury
But it won't feel the same
It won't feel the same
The same without you

We've been down this road together
And I know that this feels right
And I do believe without you right by my side
But it won't feel the same
So, baby I am gonna fight

I could have the power
Of the world and all it brings
But it wont feel the same
It won't feel the same

I'd live in a great big tower
In a world of luxury
But it won't feel the same
It won't feel the same

I could have the power
Of the world and all it brings
But it wont feel the same
It won't feel the same

I'd live in a great big tower
In a world of luxury
But it won't feel the same
It wont feel the same
The same without you

I could have the power
Of the world and all it brings
But it won't feel the same
It won't feel the same
The same without you

Again

(Greatest Hits LP) 

I've been searching for you
I heard a cry within my soul
I never had a yearning quite like this before
Now that you are walking right through my door

All of my life
Where have you been
I wonder if I'll ever see you again
And if that day comes
I know we could win
I wonder if I'll ever see you again

A sacred gift of heaven
For better worse wherever
And I would never let somebody break you down
Or take your crown, never

All of my life
Where have you been
I wonder if I'll ever see you again
And if that day comes
I know we could win
I wonder if I'll ever see you again

And everytime, I've always known
That you were there, upon your throne
A lonely queen, without a king
I longed for you, my love forever

All of my life
Where have you been
I wonder if I'll ever see you again
And if that day comes
I know we could win
I wonder if I'll ever see you again

All of my life
Where have you been
I wonder if I'll ever see you again
And if that day comes
I know we could win
I wonder if I'll ever see you again

I wonder if I'll ever see you again
I wonder if I'll ever see you again
I wonder if I'll ever see you again
I wonder if I'll ever see you again

I wonder if I'll ever see you again
I wonder if I'll ever see you again
I wonder if I'll ever see you again

(i wanna see you again)
and if that day comes
I know we could win
(and don't you know we could win)
I wonder if i'll ever see you again
(i wanna see you again)

a sacred gift of heaven
for better, worse, wherever
And i will never let somebody break you down
or take your crown never

(I wanna see you again)
All of my life, where have you been
(and don't you know we could win)
I wonder if i'll ever see you again
(i wanna see you again)
and if that day comes
I know we could win
(and don't you know we could win)
I wonder if i'll ever see you again
(i wanna see you again)

i've searched through time
i've always known
that you were there upon your throne
a lonely queen without her king
i've longed for you my love forever

Rap :
Ladies say forever
as a tony he say maybe
cause when you show emotion
some young ladies think its gravy
Thinkin the Hillary Clinton
not to mention and she got you baby
Your connection to this woman
makes you tingly conversating
You think about that pussy 24/7
365 duce four straight pimpin' you in heaven
posta play you post post up
then you make the most of
a situation thats raft-racing
then there's always masturbation, here

(I wanna see you again)
All of my life, where have you been
(and don't you know we could win)
I wonder if i'll ever see you again
(i wanna see you again)
and if that day comes
I know we could win
(and don't you know we could win)
I wonder if i'll ever see you again
(i wanna see you again)

(I wanna see you again)
All of my life, where have you been
(and don't you know we could win)
I wonder if i'll ever see you again
(i wanna see you again)
and if that day comes
I know we could win
(and don't you know we could win)
I wonder if i'll ever see you again
(i wanna see you again)

I wonder if i ever see you again
(I wanna see you again)
I wonder if i ever see you again
(I gotta see you again)
I wonder if i ever see you again
(I wanna see you again)
I wonder if i ever see you again
(I wanna see you again)
(and don't you know we could win)
(I wanna see you again)
(and don't you know we could win/i wanna see you again)
(I wanna see you again)
(I wanna see you again)

*** Thanx a lot to Adrian for this one ***

All my life

Is it the way that you feel when i'm kissing on you
Or is it the soul I can see in your eyes
The clothes that you wear or the smell of your hair
Or is it the way I can't sleep when you're not there

All my life, I've been waiting for you
All my life, I've been waiting for you

Is it the way that you feel deep inside
Or is it the way that I feel so alive
Your style and your flair are beyond compare
Or is it the way that we feel when we're on fire

All my life, I've been waiting for you
All my life, Oh I, I've been waiting for you
Every night, Oh I've been waiting for you

All my life, I've been waiting for you
All my life, I've been waiting for you
All my life, I've been waiting for you
All my life, I've been waiting for you
All my life, Oh I, I've been waiting for you
All my life, I've been waiting for you

I've been waiting for you
I've been waiting for you
I've been waiting for you
I've been waiting for you
I've been waiting for you

Another Day

( Michael Jackson featuring Lenny Kravitz )

My life has taken me beyond the planets and the stars
And you're the only one that could take me this far
I'll be forever searching for your love

I walked away but I was wrong
I can't make it another day
You're the one that makes me strong
(I can't make it another day)
You're the fire that keeps me warm
(I can't make it another day)
How did I get through this storm
(I can't live another day without your love)

Come on now

At night (at night)
I pray before I sleep in hope of finding you (finding you)
I've opened up my heart to let you to come through
I've closed my eyes, I'm searching for your love

I walked away but I was wrong
I can't make it another day
You're the one that makes me strong
(I can't make it another day)
You're the fire that keeps me warm
(I can't make it another day)
How did I get through this storm
(I can't live another day without your love)

I walked away but I was wrong
I can't make it another day
You're the one that makes me strong
(I can't make it another day)

How did I get through this storm
(I can't live another day without your love)

Another life

Haven't you heard it could be coming tonight
Just leave all your things and come and celebrate life
This time is for love, not for heartache and strife
There's no time for games and there's no time to fight
Just feel all the love that is in the air,
The feeling so good and it's everywhere,
So come on along if you heart's feeling right,
Just open your wings it's a natural flight
You can do what you want, you can say I'm a fool,
And I'll see you in another life
See you in another life

He walked on this earth so we can party tonight,
He taught us of faith 'cause it's not about sight
He taught us of peace and unconditional love
He led us from wrong and forave us there of
He did all the things 'cause he wanted you
He died on that cross so you wouldn't have to,
And now all the worlds such a beautiful light,
Just open your eyes it's a beautiful sight
You can do what you want, you can say I'm a fool,
And I'll see you in another life
Another life, come on !

You can do what you want, you can say I'm a fool,
And I'll see you in another life
See you in another life, oh yeah
Another life
See you in another life, another life
See you in another life, oh yeah,
Another life, see you in another life
Take me higher higher, Oh yeah yeah
Higher higher, higher yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah !
Higher higher, come on -(living? you sinners?) yeah
Higher higher, higher yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Ascension

Brothers and sisters
Everything's gonna be alright
We're gonna be together
In the moonlight
No more pain or strife or sorrow
It's a brand new day
You don't need no money
'Cause everything's free

It's time for ascension
To be free, to be wild

On that pretty girl's face

It's an inner beauty thing baby
That shines and shines
It ain't about your appearance
But the soul, the inside

It's time for ascension
To be free, to be wild

Rise up, rise up
Get up, get up

Billy Jack

( The Tribute to Curtis Mayfield )

Just out of Monday
Run into a friend
Down the street, down the street
Where I live
Ah! Ah! Sad things begin
I could feel from within
From the message, from the message
He had to give
'Bout a buddy of mine
Running out of time
Somebody past noon, shot across the room
And now the man no longer lives
Too bad about him,
Too sad about him
Don't get me wrong, the man is gone
But it's a wonder he lived this long
Up in the city they called him Boss Jack
But down home he was a alley cat
Ah! didn't care nothing about being black
Ah! Billy Jack
Can't be no fun ( can't be no fun )
To be shot, shot with a hand gun
Body sprawled out, you without a doubt
Running people out, there on the floor, oh oh oh
Ah! Ah! Bad bloody bloody mess
Shot all up in his chest
One sided duel, gun and a fool
What a way to go
Up in the city they called him Boss Jack
But down home he was a alley cat
Ah! Didn't care nothin' bout being Black
Ah, Ah, Billy Jack
Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah!

Breathe

( Absolut )

I'm so into you
Don't know what to do
I feel that cupid's hit me with an arrow
I know this is true
'Cause all I see is you
If you're my queen
Then I will be your pharaoh

I thirst in you love
I can't get enough
I just wanna hear you breathe
You burn in the blood
I'm drownin' in the flood
I just wanna hear you breathe

I just, I just, I just, I just, I just, I just, I just, I just
I just wanna hear you breathe
I just, I just, I just, I just, I just, I just, I just, I just
I just wanna hear you breathe

Our souls have aligned
To me you were designed
You are my charm
And no one else can take it
If you're so inclined
I'll keep your love enshrined
Inside my heart where no one else can break it

I thirst in you love
I can't get enough
I just wanna hear you breathe
You burn in the blood
I'm drownin' in the flood
I just wanna hear you breathe

I just, I just, I just, I just, I just, I just, I just, I just
I just wanna hear you breathe
I just, I just, I just, I just, I just, I just, I just, I just
I just wanna hear you breathe

I just, I just, I just, I just, I just, I just, I just, I just

I thirst in you love
I can't get enough
I just wanna hear you breathe
You burn in the blood
I'm drownin' in the flood
I just wanna hear you breathe

I just wanna hear you breathe

I thirst in you love
I can't get enough
I just wanna hear you breathe
You burn in the blood
I'm drownin' in the flood
I just wanna hear you breathe

Brother

Henry

Brother, got to sing your song
Brother, is taking us so long

For the elderly brother has raised us by his love
And to be equal is the freedom of his love
When will we realized that the skin is just a glove
To be thankful for the freedom of his love

Sister, stand up tall and proud
Sister, yell it strong and loud
I'm black and I'm proud

For no human can change the course of time
And no human creates the live in mind
So how can a man makes rules when yet he has no love
And how can a man a woman fill they are above

For an heavenly brother has raised us by his love
And to be equal is the freedom of his love
When will we realized that his skin is just a glove
And be thankful for the freedom of his love

Brother brother brother
Brother brother brother brother
Brother brother brother brother.

Change

( Free Myspace Song for Obama 08 )

We need hope, we need love
We need peace, we need God
We must communicate
That's how we erase hate

It is time for a change we can believe in
It is time for a change we got to start turning around
´Cause the future of our world is on the table
It is time, it is time for a change

There's enough to go 'round
But our greed took us down
Lift somebody when they're down
Free someone when they're bound

It is time for a change we can believe in
It is a time for a change we got to start turning around
Because the future of our world is on the table

It is time, it is time for a change
It is time, it is time for a change
It is time, it is time for a change.
It is time, it is time for a change

I'm asking you to believe in yourself
I'm asking you to believe in God
´Cause we're all our Father's children
We are the people, we are the power

So come on take a stand
Get on up raise your hand
We can make a new plan
Yeah, we can change, yes we can.

It is time for a change we can believe in
It is a time for a change we got to start turning around
Because the future of our world is on the table

It is time, it is time for a change
It is time, it is time for a change
Oh, it is time, it is time for a change
Oh, it is time, it is time for a change
Change
Change
It's time for a change
Change
It's time for a change
It is time
Change
Time for a change
Oh it is time
Change
Time for a change
It is time
Change
Time for a change
It is time
Change
Time for a change
Oh it is time, it is time for a change

Cold turkey

( Cover / J. Lennon )

Temperature's rising
Fever is high
Can't see no future
Can't see no sky

My feet are so heavy
So is my head
I wish I was a baby
I wish I was dead

Cold turkey has got me on the run

My body is aching
Goose-pimple bone
Can't see no body
Leave me alone

My eyes are wide open
I can't get to sleep
One thing I'm sure of
I'm in at the deep freeze

Cold turkey has got me on the run
Come on,
Cold turkey has got me on the fucking run

Thirty-six hours
Rolling in pain
Praying to someone
Free me again

Oh I'll be a good boy
Please make me well
I promise you anything
Get me out of this hell

Cold turkey has got me on the run
Cold turkey, cold turkey,
Cold turkey, cold turkey, cold turkey, cold turkey,
Oh, oh, oh, yeah, Oh, oh, oh, oooh
Cold turkey, cold turkey, cold turkey, cold turkey
Yeah

Confused

Talking 'bout a woman
Talkin' 'bout a man
I just can't seem to get it together
Joining hand to hand
The clock, it ticks and it tocks
But my heart is on the rocks

I'm confused, so confused
And I've got to tell you something's wrong with my views, yeah
I'm confused, so confused
And I've got to tell you something's wrong with my views
I can't choose

Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby
Let me feel good inside
All I wanna do is love you, love you, love you
Instead of making you cry
But when I come around
I'd just left another on the other side of town

I'm confused, so confused
And I've got to tell you something's wrong with my views
I can't choose

I'm confused, so confused
And I've got to tell you something's wrong with my views
I can't choose

You ask me if I love you, baby
And I tell that I do
But don't you ask me if you're the only one, woman
'Cause' I can't say that it's true

Talkin' about a woman
Talkin 'bout a man
I just can't seem to get it together
Join woman to man hand to hand
The clock it ticks and it tocks
But my heart is on the rocks

I'm confused, so confused
And I've got to tell you something's wrong with my views
I can't choose

I'm confused yeah, so confused
And I've got to tell you something's wrong with my views
I can't choose

I'm confused, yes I am darlin', so confused,
And I got to tell you something's wrong with my views,
I can't choose
I'm confused, I mercy, so confused,
And I've got to tell you something's wrong with my views
I just can't, I just can't choose
Oh yeah baby
It's a dog gone shame

Dance Around The Fire

( Target Version of Black & White America )

Woah, ain't life grand
You're always dreaming
About the things you don't have

And oh, you think it's a drag
You're taking life for granted
You won't live it 'till you understand

That you ain't read to rock
Until you're ready to roll, yeah

Put your gun down
And dance around the fire
Under the moonlight
The flames are getting higher

Put your gun down
And dance around the fire
Under the moonlight
The flames are getting higher

I said oh
Ain't life a bitch
The tricks are turning
I know you're trying to get rich

But hey, you're pulling a scam
You're gonna wake up one day
Just to find out that it was a sham
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
When you trade money for love
It is gonna get old, yeah

Put your gun down
And dance around the fire
Under the moonlight
The flames are getting higher

Oh put your gun down
And dance around the fire
Under the moonlight
The devil is a liar
Oh, woah !
Come on Craig

I said oh
Dance around the fire
Under the moonlight
The flames are getting higher

Oh put your gun down
And dance around the fire
Under the moonlight
The flames are getting higher
Higher, higher yeah
I should be preaching to the choir

Oh the flames are getting higher
Higher, higher yeah
Oh put your gun down
And dance around the fire
Under the moonlight
The flames are getting higher

Put your gun down
And dance around the fire

For the first time

I want to fall in love again
For the first time
Makes me kind of wonder if you're still mine
I want to press your lips on mine
For the first time
Makes me kind of wonder if you're still mine
Love is something
You can't get in a five and dime
And love is the question of more time
And love is something
That's really hard to find
Love makes a strong man
Get down on his knees in the crowd
Just lay your hand
On mine
Yeah, for the first time
Makes me kind of wonder if you're still mine
And I wonder If you'll ever really be mine

Guns & Roses

( Jay-Z f/ Lenny Kravitz - The Blueprint 2: The Gift & the Curse LP )

Yeah it's magic
Uhh, Jay-Z and Lenny Kravitz
And it's a Heavy D product you bastards
Come on
Ha hey yo stop playin man
This is real serious
Ha (It's the rock) yeah yo

[Jay-Z]
Post Postatono, Hov' hangin with Bono
You too can live like Salvatore Ferragamo
And you too can cool out poolside after Delano
And you too flow like you was out of your mind yo
And who knew dude who loved apple pies from McDonalds
Would soon be the boss of the Big Apple, ya know
And who knew dude would play ball for the NBA
Would make a mistake on the who know it stayed still in the way
Who knew that would be his last shot, who drew up that play
They giveth and they taketh life is cool that way
But even a broken clock is right two times a day
You could have turned Guns into Roses like two times today
Now there's something you gotta say two times to Jay
I got my shades on waiting for the sun to shine my way
Got my boom box, suntan lotion waiting for action
Its safe when you play with skills, good luck could happen
Let's go

(C'mon) It's the Roc (repeat 4X)
That's right

[Jay-Z]
It got to hot so I jumped off in this rap shit
You got it criss-crossed ain't no turning me backwards
Too many District Attorneys concerned with the actions
Of one individual he's criminally attached
I turned in all my rap chips I'm earning my bachelors
While dating all the models and actresses
I'm learning all the potholes in every single barrio
Trying not to mess up my axis kid
On the road to riches through trafficking
Through rappining whatever's happening
Roc-a-wear I'm the young black Ralph Lauren
Every time I get out they put me right back in
The Michael Corleone of the microphone
The Michelangelo of flow I paint pictures with poems
Have you ever known moss like a rolling stone
Case the Grim Reaper visits my home, nigga I'm gone c'mon

(C'mon) It's the Roc (3X)
(C'mon) That's right (C'mon)

[Lenny Kravitz: repeat 2X]
Life is all about Guns and Roses
Bittersweet like friends and foes
Some get lucky and some get chosen
Just like life, Guns and Roses

[Jay-Z]
More Guns then Roses, foes is, visibly shook of the invisible book, let's go
Flowers need water to grow, it gotta rain
And in order to experience joy you need pain
Every time a baby is born, somebody slain
You know the saying, somebody's lose is another's gain
The sun comes out when the water goes down the drain
When the rainbow in the cloud comes out we do it again
Everything evens up, you just wait
Even a garbage can gets a steak
You ain't even a garbage can you have faith
But when it turns your way before it turns away
To turn that into something you gotta learn from Jay
You will get return in your investment if attention you pay let's go

(C'mon) It's the Roc (3X)
(C'mon) That's right (C'mon)

[Lenny Kravitz: repeat 2X]
Life is all about Guns and Roses
Bittersweet like friends and foes
Some get lucky and some get chosen
Just like life, Guns and Roses

Life is all about Guns and Roses

Have you ever been ( to electric ladyland )

( Power of soul - A tribute to Jimi Hendrix )

Have you ever been
Have you ever been
To Electric Ladyland?

The magic carpet waits
For you
So don't be late


I wanna show you

The different emotions
I wanna run to
The sounds and motions, heeey
Electric woman waits for you and me
So it's time we take a ride
We can cast all of your hang-ups over the seaside
While we fly right over the love filled sea
Look up ahead
I see the loveland
Soon you'll understand.

Make love, make love, make love, make love.

I wanna show you
The angels will spread their wings, yeah
I wanna run to
Good and evil lay side by side
While electric love penetrates the sky
I wanna show you
Lord, Lord, Lord I wanna show you
I wanna show you
Haaa, haaa , haaa
I wanna show you

I wanna show you
Show you
Oh ! I wanna show you
You gotta believe i wanna show
I wanna show you
I wanna show you
Ah yeah, I wanna show you
I wanna show you...show you!

I'll be around

I'm sorry if I tell you that you don't smell like roses
I'm tired of all the hypocrisy and all your silly poses
But honey what I tell you is the truth
So don't turn away
When I said I accepted you
I was here to stay

And I'll be around
I'll be around
I'll be around
Oh,I'll be around

I'm sorry if I offended you
But don't walk away
But someone's gotta speak the truth
About the things you say
You can't just dog everybody
Who's supposed to be your friend
Cause honey your dish is full
And your leash is waitin' on a friend

And I'll be around
I'll be around
I'll be around
Oh,I'll be around

I'll be around
Out on the town
I'll be around
Oh,I'll be around
I'll be around

I can always be found
Cause I'll be around
I'll be around
I'll be around

Is it me is it you

And so there comes a time,
We must both make up our minds
Is our angel singing true
Is it me is it you

I just got to know it now
Rode somewhere, some place, somehow
Is our love as deep as blue
Is it me is it you
Is it me is it you

I'm lost in your love
Don't think I ever stopped
I got the feeling that's the reason why
And the question's loud and clear
Should we stay or should we bend
It just gets deeper in the end
I know you want to know it too
Is it me is it you
Is it me is it you
Yeah

Like A Jet

I'm on the line in the starting position
Look to the back 'cause I made a decision

I got no time to waste, I'm moving
I'll get you any way that I can
I'm coming through like a freight train, I'm rolling
I'm piercing through like a jet in the sky
I'm busting through like the sun in the morning
I'm going to take it just to get through my highs

I'm in your face and I'm revving my engine

Like Father Like Son

( Music by Elton John / Lyrics by Tim Rice )

Don't come on so cocksure boy
You can't escape your genes
No point in feeling pure boy
Your background intervenes

Listen good and listen straight
You're not the master of your fate
To this you must be reconciled
You'll always be your father's child

At times acclaimed, at times reviled
You'll wind up doing just what I'd have done
Like father, like son
Like father, like son
Oh oh oh ah ah hey hey

Don't assume your vices
Get handed down the line
That a parent's blood suffices
To condemn the child's design

I've done wrong, I can't deny
But at least I know that I
Shouldn't blame that on my stock
This may come as quite a shock

But I'm no chip off any block
I wouldn't wish those words on anyone
Like father, like son
Oh yeah
Like father, like son
Hey hey
Come on

He's lost all sense of reason
And why? Some filthy slave
That is the road called treason
That winds up in the grave

Just like me he's found that flesh
Can excite but will enmesh
Once we rid him of this blight
Once this harlot's out of sight

Then I think he'll see the light
He won't walk back to daddy he will run
Like father, yeah, like son

Oh yeah, oh hey, oh ah
Yeah yeah
Like father, like son
Yeah yeah yeah
Come on sing it now with me
Like father, like son
Father, like son
Like father, like son ...

Lonely rainbows

( Duet With Vanessa Paradis )

Vanessa
Tonight, I'm yours
And you are mine
I know a place we can hide
I know a place
Where we can finally see the rainbow
And we can fly fly fly fly fly

I know a place
Over the lonely lonely rainbow
Were we can make things right

I know a place where we can
Always be together
And we can go tonight

Lenny
I know a place where we can live our lives
And I know a place
Where we can see the light

Vanessa
I know a place
Over the lonely rainbow
Where we can make things right
Over the lonely lonely lonely lonely rainbow.

Main Squeeze

( Teena Marie )

Teena Marie : 
Hey you, where are you going with that suitcase
Naw, Put that down, you ain't going nowhere

Just reflecting on the way it was
It is irrelevant
The fact we're still together baby doll
Is so significant

I love you child I always will this will never change
I sign myself to you baby every time I speak your name

Back in the days when I was young and blind
Hanging with the sista's we was fine as wine
Checking you out on a regular basis
I even let you touch me in all my secret places

And I gave in
When you held me
And we move and we groove
And you wanted me
And you loved me
And you wanted me
And you moaned
And you groaned
So don't you be

Crazy I'm your baby
Hold me tighter baby ahh
I'm your main squeeze
Come on and squeeze me baby
Don't erase me
I'm your baby
Kiss me one time
And it's over
I'm your main squeeze
Squeeze me
Tease me

Round and round we go
In and out and up and over
Give me your love
Ooh I need your love
I want your love

I couldn't see the forest for the trees
And every guy that tried to turn my head
Could not obstruct my view
You love me child you always will
In this you have no choice
You sign yourself to me baby every time you hear my voice

Back in the day when you was leading the pack
Honey you're my man
Young gifted and black
Riding around in an old '64
I even let you touch me, even let you score

And I gave in
When you held me
And we moved
And we grooved and you wanted me
And you loved me
And you wanted me
And you moaned
And you groaned so don't be crazy

Couldn't see the forest baby, through the trees
All I saw was you - ooh baby
And we moved, and we grooved
And we moved and we grooved and you wanted me

Crazy I'm your baby
Hold me tighter baby ahh
I'm your main squeeze
Come on and squeeze me baby
Don't erase me
I'm your baby
Kiss me one time
And it's over
I'm your main squeeze
Squeeze me
Tease me

Round and round we go
In and out and up and over
Give me your love
Ooh I need your love
I want your love


Lenny : 
I couldn't see the forest baby, through the trees
All I saw was you


Teena Marie : 
Ooh baby

Lenny : 
And we moved, and we grooved
And we moved and we grooved and you wanted me


Teena Marie : 
Don't erase me
I'm your baby
Kiss me one time
And it's over
I'm your main squeeze
Squeeze me
Tease me ...

Mean Sleep

Lenny Kravitz
What can we scrape together
With just the flesh as evidence
Handfuls of hate
And the bittersweet ambivalence


Lenny Kravitz & Cree Summer
'Cos I am pushin' cobwebs
And I'm folding into myself


Lenny Kravitz

Who will find me under this mean sleep


Cree Summer

How could the clouds tease us into thinking it might rain ?
How could the need deceive us into thinking things might change ?

Lenny Kravitz & Cree Summer
I had a mean, mean sleep over you
And it hurts, hurts coming back to life

Lenny Kravitz
You could burn a thousand days
And I would need no other light
You could die a thousand ways
And I'd still love you back to life

Lenny Kravitz & Cree Summer
But my needs rising angry
And my loneliness like quicksand

Lenny Kravitz
Who will find me under this mean sleep

Cree Summer
How could the clouds tease us into thinking it might rain ?
How could the need deceive us into thinking things might change ?


Lenny Kravitz & Cree Summer
I had a mean, mean sleep over you
And it hurts, hurts coming back to life

Lenny Kravitz & Cree Summer
I had a mean, mean sleep over you
And it hurts, hurts coming back to life

Lenny Kravitz & Cree Summer
I am lost to the longing
I am moulded by the memory

Lenny Kravitz
Had to shut down half my mind

Lenny Kravitz & Cree Summer
Just to still the space you left behind


Lenny Kravitz & Cree Summer
'Cos I am pushin' cobwebs
And I'm folding into myself

Lenny Kravitz
Who will find me under this mean sleep

Cree Summer
How could the clouds tease us into thinking it might rain ?
How could the need deceive us into thinking things might change ?

Lenny Kravitz & Cree Summer
I had a mean, mean sleep over you
And it hurts, hurts coming back to life


Lenny Kravitz

Coming back to life


Cree Summer
I had a mean sleep

Lenny Kravitz & Cree Summer
I had a mean, mean sleep over you

Lenny Kravitz & Cree Summer
I had a mean sleep

Lenny Kravitz & Cree Summer
And it hurts, hurts coming back to life

Lenny Kravitz

Coming back to life


Lenny Kravitz & Cree Summer
I had a mean, mean sleep over you

Lenny Kravitz & Cree Summer
I had a mean sleep

Lenny Kravitz & Cree Summer
And it hurts, hurts coming back to life

Coming back to life yeah

Rainy Day Women # 12 & 35

( Bob Dylan Cover - Chimes of Freedom LP )

They'll stone you when you're trying to be so good
They'll stone you just like they said they would
They'll stone you when you're trying to go home
Then they'll stone you when you're there all alone
But I would not feel so all alone
Everybody must get stoned

They'll stone you when you're walking along the street
They'll stone you when you're trying to keep your seat
They'll stone you when you're walking on the floor
Then they'll stone you when you're walking to the door
But I would not feel so all alone
Everybody must get stoned
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
They'll stone you when you're at the breakfast table
They'll stone you when you are young and able
They'll stone you when you're trying to make a buck
Then they'll stone you and then they'll say, “good luck”
Well I would not feel so all alone
Everybody must get stoned

Oh yeah come on
Everybody must get stoned

Well, they'll stone you and say that it's the end
Then they'll stone you when that bitch comes back again
They'll stone you when you're riding in your car
Then they'll stone you when you're playing your guitar
Yes, but I would not feel so all alone
Everybody must get stoned

Everybody must get stoned

They'll stone you when you walk all alone
They'll stone you when you are walking home
And they'll stone you and then say you are brave
Then they'll stone you when you are set down in your grave
But I would not feel so all alone
Everybody must get stoned

Everybody must get stoned
Alright come on

Someone like you

Waiting impatiently for you to come
Wondering if you will always be the one
Is this good for you
Is it wonderful for you too

'Cause baby I told you I'm ready for love
I'm anticipating and waiting for some
Tell me what to do
Tell me baby 'cause I love you

It's been so lovely
Now that I got you
I've been looking for someone like you
Someone like you

What do you like to do
What do you got to say
Just tell me baby what's on your brain
'Cause I just want to sit down and talk for awhile
Do you want to make babies
Do you want a career
Well whatever it is darling, I just want you near
And we'll be together just you and me dear

It's been so lovely
(It's been so lovely)
Since I found you
I was praying for someone like you
Someone like you

Ain't been lonely
Now that I got you
I was waiting for someone like you
Come on come on come on yeah
Been so lovely
Now that I got you
I've been waiting for someone like you
Someone like you
Someone like you...

The majority

( With D. McKagan )

You call me the mean man
You point your finger at me
Having problems with authority
In every major city

And it's so easy for you
The majority, the majority
And there's no peace for you

And your money-sucking friends
Don't need you to be I'll be me to the end

And it's so easy for you

You call me the mean man
I say you call me the mean man

And it's so easy for you
The majority, the majority
And there's no peace for you

Your white housewives
And your money-sucking friends
Don't need your to be

War

( Target Version of Black & White America )

Do you think we can start over
Do we have the eyes to see
Is there any more devotion
Left inside our will to be

Or do you think that it's over
Inevitable prophecy
Do you see any other way that we can recover
If so you can work with me

I say war no more
I'm not gonna fight this war no more
I say war, uh uh
I'm not gonna fight this war no more

You and I shoulder to shoulder
That's the way we used to be
How the nights keep getting colder
What's become of you and me

Has our world come crashing towards
An enormous thunderous sea
Or will we discover that our future's in each other
And avoid this travesty
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
I say war no more
I'm not gonna fight this war no more
I say war, uh uh
I'm not gonna fight this war no more

I say war no more
I'm not gonna fight this war no more
I say war, uh uh
I'm not gonna fight this war no more...

We want peace

Come on people
It's time to get together
It's time for the revolution!

Here is once again in our face
Why haven't we learn from our past
We're at the crossroads of our human race
Why are we kicking our own ass

We want peace
We want it yes
We want peace
We want it yes
We want peace
And we want it fast

We want peace
We want it yes
We want peace
We want it yes
We want peace
And we want it fast

We're on the eve of destruction my friends
We are about to go to far
Politicians think that war is the way
But we know that love has the power

We want peace
We want it yes
We want peace
We want it yes
We want peace
And we want it fast

We want peace
We want it yes
We want peace
We want it yes
We want peace
And we want it fast

The solution is simple and fame
There won't be peace if we don't try
In a war there is nothing to gain
When so many people will die

We want peace
We want it yes
We want peace
We want it yes
We want peace
And we want it fast

We want peace
We want it yes
We want peace
We want it yes
We want peace
And we want it fast

What Do You Want From Me

( Target Version of Black & White America )

Oh, Yeah
What do you want from me
You want my love, you want my blood
What do you want from me
I'm giving up, I've seen enough

Why don't you leave me alone

You'll feel a whole lot better once you deliver you'll see

What do you want from me
You want my love, you want my blood
What do you want from me
You want my love, you want my blood

You can't take blood from a stone
So take your ass and shake it home
And if you want to get funky
Don't get funky with me

What do you want from me
You want my taste, you ought to try
What do you want from me
You want my gig, you must be high
What do you want from me
You need to turn yourself around
What do you want from me
Are you a king, you are my crown

These sticks and stones, they break your bones
But you won't stop from breaking balls
I won't get low, just don't go there with me, oh
Drain my blood and drink it all
Take my love and break it off
But my soul is something you'll never take from me, oh

What do you want from me
You want my love, you want my blood
What do you want from me
I'm giving up, I've seen enough

Without you

The sun is shining
But I don't feel the rays
The boats are sailing
But I don't want to play

I don't think I can make it
Without you
I don't think I can make it
Without you

I live life in luxury
But I believe it's a crime
Well you can't enjoy it
And all the time cr
y

Or maybe some kind of spell
'Cause it feels like a curse
When there's so much water
But all the time thirst

I don't think I can make it
Without you
I don't think I can make it
Without you

I don't think I can make it
Without you
I don't think I can make it
Without you

My mind is a courthouse
My soul is a jail
My life is on death row
'Cause you are not there

I need a pardon
I can't stand the pain
What I do for your love now
If there's love to regain

I don't think I can make it without you
I don't think I can make it without you

I don't think I can make it without you
I don't think I can make it without you

I don't think I can make it without you
I don't think I can make it without you

Girl you got a lot
Seems you got an itch that's scratching
Lay it like it plays
Play it like it lays
All your Easter eggs are hatching
In your Cadillac
Reaching for your jack
There's nothing we can tell you
Just a little queen
Dirty mouth and mean
There's nothing we can sell you

You're an original, baby
Like we've never seen before
You're an original, baby
Turn around and you're looking at a hundred more

Deadly in the sack
Grooving to The Clash
On some kind of wasted weekend
Pretty little girl
Expensive little world
Curiosity is peeking

Here today and gone by morning
Your ice cream cone is melting fast
Maybe Monday, maybe someday
Your lucky star won't fly on past

You're an original, baby
Like we've never seen before
You're an original, baby
Turn around and you're looking at a hundred more

You're an original, baby
Like we've never seen before
You're an original, baby
Turn around and you're looking at a hundred more

Turn around and you're looking at a hundred more
Turn around and you're looking at a hundred more
Turn around and you're looking at a hundred more

Caught you in a pose
That everybody knows
We thought you had something special

You're an original, baby
Like we've never seen before
You're an original, baby
Turn around, turn around

You're an original, baby
Like we've never seen before
You're an original, baby
Look out baby turn around yeah

You're an original, baby
Like we've never seen before
You're an original, baby
Turn around, turn around, turn around

You're an original, baby
Like we've never seen before
You're an original, baby

*** Thanx a lot to Ashlyne who helped me for this one ***

Live Tracks

All along the watchtower

( Cover / Bob Dylan )

There must be some kind of way out of here
Said the joker to the thief
There's too much confusion
I can't get no relief
Business men they
They drink my wine
Plowmen dig my earth
No one will level on the line
Nobody of it is worth

No reason to get excited
The thief he kindly fool
There are many here among us
Who feel that life is but a joke
But you and I we've been through that
And this is not our fate
So let us talk falsely now
The hour's getting late
Yeah

All along the watchtower
The princess kept the view
While all the women came and went
Bare feet servants too
Outside in the cold distance
A wild cat did growl
Two riders were aproaching now
And the wind began to howl

Yeah
All along the watchtower
Yeah
All along the watchtower
Oh come on

*** Thanx a lot to Tina & Ramphal who corrected a mistake ***

Anti Love Song

(Live With Skin of Skunk Anansie, French Tv Show (Taratata), 10 March 96, Paris)

Skin
No I don't want love you,
`Cos I know who you are,
That`s why I`ve been staying away from you,
That is why I ever call,
Huummm, I know that you could possess my body,
And I know you could make me scrawl
I know you`d have me shaken,
Have me climbing the wall
That`s why I don`t wanna` love you

Lenny Kravitz
`Cos I know how you are
Sure you say you`re right on and your righteous, girl
Come with me, I know you`d be right off
`Cos I know you could possess my body,
I know you could make me crawl,
And just as hard as I fall for you girl,
Well you know you would fall for me harder
That`s why I don`t want to love you

Skin
`Cos I know what you would do to my heart
You scourge me like a hot iron,
Leave me whining all alone in the dark,
`Cos I know that you would make me suffer
I know that you would drive me wild ( that`s right ) wild
You would take me in a circle
And when it gather you, I know you`d disappear
That`s why I don`t wanna` love you

Lenny Kravitz
 `Cos I know you like to be in charge,
And with me you know you can`t control me, baby,
`Cos you know you drive your car
I have you eating your ego ( I don`t think so !! )
I`d make it pocket your pride, Oh no
And just as hard as I`ve been loving you, oh girl,
Well you know you`d be loving me harder

Lenny & Skin
That`s why I ain`t gonna` love you

Lenny
Harold, come on

Lenny & Skin
That`s why I don`t wanna love you
No I don`t want to love you X7

Don't Be Shy

( Cat Stevens Cover / Live Taratata 2011 )

Don't be shy
Just let your feelings roll on by

Lift your head
And let your feelings out instead
Don't be shy
Just let your feeling roll on by
On by, on by, on by, on by, on by

You know love is better than a song
Love is where all of us belong
So don't be shy

You're there, you're there
You're there, you're there, you're there
You're there, you're there

God gave me everything

( Live with Mick Jagger at VH1 )

You can see it in a clear blue sky
You can see it in a woman's eye
You can hear it in your baby's cries
You can hear it in your lover's (eyes)

Yeah, hold it right there in the palm of your hand
Feel it around you every day
Hear what I got to say

God gave me everything I want
Oh, come on, I'm giving it back to you
God gave me everything I want
Oh, come on, I'm giving it back to you

I saw it in the midnight zone
And I felt it in the race and ruin
I hear it in the wind and storm
And I feel it in the icy dawn

And I smell it in the one I taste
And I see it in my father's face
And I hear it in a symphony
And I feel in a love so for me yeah

God gave me everything I want
Oh, come on, I'm giving it back to you

God gave me everything I want
Oh, come on, I'm giving it back to you ah

If 6 was 9

( Cover Live / J.Hendrix )

If the sun refused to shine
I don't mind, no baby I don't mind
And If the mountains fell in the sea
It ain't me, you know you've got to be free

I got my own world to live through
And I ain't gonna copy you.

Now if six turned out to be nine
I don't mind, no baby I don't mind,
If all the hippies cut off all their hair,
I don't care, no baby I don't care.

Because I, I've got my own world to live through,
And I ain't gonna copy you.

White collar conservative walkin' down the street
Pointin' their plastic finger at me,
Hopin' my kind will drop and die
But I'm gonna wave my freak flag high,
So, play on drummer.

I've got my own world to live through,
And I ain't gonna copy you

I Found Out

( John Lennon Cover / Live 1990 )

I told you before
Stay away from my door
So don't you give me that brother, brother, brother, brother

The freaks on the phone
Won't leave me alone
So don't you give me that brother, brother, brother, brother, brother
Yeah

I, I found out
I, I found out

Now that I showed you what I've been through
Don't take nobody's word what you can do
There ain't no Jesus gonna come from the sky
Now that I found out I know I can cry

I, I found out
I, I found out

Some of you sitting there with your cock in your hand
Don't get you nowhere don't make you a man
I heard something 'bout my Ma and my Pa
They didn't want me so they made me a star

I, I found out
I, yeah I found out
Come on

Old Hare Krishna got nothing on you
Just keep you crazy with nothing to do
Keep you occupied with pie in the sky
There ain't no mother fucking guru
Whp can see through your eyes

I found out, I say I found out
I say I, I found out

I've seen through junkies, I've been through it all
I've seen religion from Jesus to Paul
Don't let them fool you with dope and cocaine
No one can harm you, feel your own pain

I, I found out
Let me tell you that
I, I found out
Come on

Many rivers to cross

( Jimmy Cliff Cover / Live Stripped on B93 - 2008 )

Many rivers to cross
But I can't seem to find
My way over
Wandering I am lost
As I travel along
The white cliffs of Dover

Many rivers to cross
And it's only my will
That keeps me alive
I've been licked
Washed up for years
And I merely survive
Because of my pride

And this loneliness won't leave me alone
It's such a drag to be on my own
My woman left me and she didn't say why
Well I guess I got to cry

I've got many rivers to cross
But just where to begin
I'm playing for time
There are times
I find myself
Thinking of committing
Some dreadful crime

I've got many rivers to cross
But I can't seem to find
My way over
Wandering I am lost
As I travel along
The white cliffs of Dover

Many rivers to cross
And I merely survive
Because of my will
Come on Harold

Oh, many rivers to cross
I've got many rivers to cross
Many rivers to cross
Many, many, rivers to cross

My flash on you

( Love Cover )

I don't want to be in your company
I don't need you to take care of me
Let me alone, let me alone, let me alone
Won't you let me be
'Cause all I want in this world is to say I'm a man that's free

People talk about the way I look
I think that all the things they say I've got enough to write a book
But don't they know, don't they know, don't they know
It's a waste of breath
'Cause I don't want to be like them
I just want to be myself

Don't try and push your smuggled drugs my way
'Cause baby I lose my soul and that's the way it's gonna stay
You try to put me down on the ground, anyway that you choose
Get your kicks from your fix
Cause baby this time, you're gonna lose

No expectations

( Cover Rolling Stones / Duo Live With Mick Jagger )

Mick Jagger
Take me to the station and put me on a train
I've got no expectations to pass through here again

Lenny Kravitz
Once I was a rich man and now I am so poor
But never in my sweet, short life have I felt like this before

Mick Jagger
Your heart is like a diamond, you throw your pearls at swine
And as I watch you leaving me, you pack my peace of mind

Lenny Kravitz
Our love was like the water that splashes on a stone
Our love was like our music, it's here and then it's gone

Mick Jagger
So take me to the airport and put me on a plane
I've got no expectations to pass through here again

Lenny Kravitz & Mick Jagger
To pass through here again

Hey babe, your hair's alright
Hey babe, let's go out tonight

You like me, and I like it all
We like dancing and we look divine
You love bands when they're playing hard
You want more and you want it fast

You wanna be there when they count up the dudes
And I love your dress
Because your face is a mess
You're a juvenile success
So how could they know
How could they know
I say I could they know
How could they know
How could they know

Silver and gold

Vanessa
How many children must die
How many rivers run dry
How many angels must cry
For silver and gold.

Lenny
Why don't we learn
From our past
How many more years
Will we last
'Cause life is just moving so fast
For silver and gold

Vanessa
For Silver and gold
How much more time
Can we waste
How much more land
Be defaced

Lenny
Oh Yeah
'Cause soon we will all be erased
For silver and gold

Vanessa
'Cause our earth should last forever
And our lives forever on, on ...

Lenny
For God gave us all to partake

Vanessa
Why can we just learn to relate
We're pissing on our children's face
For silver and gold.

Lenny & Vanessa
For silver and gold

Superstition

( Stevie Wonder / Live at The Horde Festival with Blues Traveler )

Very superstitious
Writing's on the wall
Very superstitious
Ladder's about to fall
Thirteen-month-old baby
Broke the looking glass
Seven years of bad luck
Good things in your past

If you believe in things that you don't understand
Then you suffer
Superstition ain't the way

Very superstitious
Wash your face and hands
Rid me of the problems
Do all that you can
Keep me in a daydream
Keep me going strong
You don't want to save me
Sad is my song

If you believe in things that you don't understand
Then you suffer
Superstition ain't the way

Very superstitious
Nothing more to say
Very superstitious
Devil's on his way
Thirteen-month-old baby
Broke the looking glass
Seven years of bad luck
Good things in your past

If you believe in things that you don't understand
Then you suffer
Superstition ain't the way

Superstition ain't the way...
Superstition ain't the way...

Take Me To The River 

 ( Cover / Al Green )

Al Green :
I don't know why I love you like I do
After all these changes you put me through
You stole my money and my cigarettes
And I haven't seen hide nor hair of you yet

I wanna know
Won't you tell me
Am I in love to stay?
Hey hey

Al Green & BB King :
Take me to the river
And wash me down
Won't you cleanse my soul
Put my feet on the ground

Lenny Kravitz :
I don't know why she treated me so bad
Look at all those things that we could have had
Love is a notion that I can't forget
My sweet sixteen I will never regret

I wanna know
Won't you tell me
Am I in love to stay?
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah


Al Green & BB King :
Take me to the river
And wash me down
Won't you cleanse my soul
Put my feet on the ground

Sheryl Crow / Lenny Kravitz / Al Green / BB King : 
Hold me, love me, please me, tease me
Till I can't, till I can't take no more
Take me to the river


BB King / Lenny Kravitz :

I don't know why I love you like I do
After all these changes you put me through
The sixteen candles burning on my wall
Turning me into the biggest fool of them all

I wanna know
Oh won't you tell me
Am I in love to stay?


Al Green & BB King :
Take me to the river
And wash me down
Won't you cleanse my soul
Put my feet on the ground

One more time !

Take me to the river
And wash me down
Won't you cleanse my soul
Put my feet on the ground

The Harder They Come

( Duet with Asa live Taratata 2009 / Jimmy Cliff Cover )

Asa :
Well they tell me of a pie up in the sky
Waiting for me when I die
But between the day you're born and when you die
They never seem to hear even your cry

So as sure as the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share now of what's mine
And then the harder they come
The harder they'll fall, one and all
Oh oh the harder they come
The harder they'll fall, one and all

Lenny :
Well the officers are trying to keep me down
Trying to drive me underground
And they think that they have got the battle won
I say forgive them Lord, they know not what they've done

But as sure as the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share now of what's mine
And then the harder they come
The harder they'll fall, one and all
You see the harder they come
The harder they'll fall, one and all
Hey ! Oh yeah !


Asa :
And I keep on fighting for the things I want
Though I know when you're dead you can't

Lenny :
But I'd rather be a free man in my grave
Than living as a puppet or a slave

Asa :
So as sure as the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share now of what's mine


Lenny :

And then the harder they come
The harder they'll fall, one and all
You see the harder they come

You see the harder they come

When the levee breaks

( Kansas Joe McCoy & Menphis Minnie / Live Katrina Hurricane Benefit )

If it keeps on raining
Levee's goin' to break
If it keeps on raining
Levee's goin' to break
And all the water gonna come in
I have no place to stay

Well all last night I sat on the levee and moan
Well all last night I sat on the levee and moan
I was thinking about my baby and my happy home

If it keeps on raining
Levee's goin' to break
If it keeps on raining
Levee's goin' to break
And all these good people have no place to stay

Now look here mama what am I to do yeah
Well look here mama what am I to do
I ain't got nobody to tell my troubles to

Now I work on the levee all night and day
I work on the levee all night and day
I ain't got nobody to keep the water away

Oh cryin' won't help, prayin' won't do no good
I said, cryin' won't help, prayin' won't do no good
When the levee breaks, mama, oh you got to lose

Now I work on the levee all night and day
Oh I work on the levee, mama, oh all night and day
And I work so hard, to keep the water away

I had a woman, she won't do me no good
Oh I had a woman, she won't do me no good
So I'm gonna go back to my used to be

I's a mean old levee
Cause me to weep and moan
I's a mean old levee
Cause me to weep and moan
Gonna leave my baby
And my happy home
