Across the river from the shore
lands we explored
nobody lives there no more

I think about the plans we had
i think about the things we said
i knew that things were turning bad
but i never thought it would end like this
i never imagined you gone
took for granted you were always here
i had to feel loved by someone
but i wish now i could feel you near
gone are the days
and the chance we will find
is at the end of our time

across the river from the shore
lands we explored
nobody lives there no more
once upon a dream there were
children who once played
in the dust
now i’m the only living soul
left here on my own
nobody lives here no more
no no

the sun never sets or dawns
the moon no longer yawns
a silence ass the days un-whirl
but no body left to share it away
I’ll never see your face again
Never hold you till the sun comes up
I’ll never get to see the day
The day we have a family
Now all that’s left
Is the dust and debris
And the memories

across the river from the shore
lands we explored
nobody lives there no more
once upon a dream there were
children who once played
in the dust, the dust, the dust
now i’m the only living soul
left here on my own
nobody lives here no more
now i’m the only living soul
left here on my own
nobody lives here no more
no more
no more
no more

You may be beautiful
We’ve had a magical time together exploring each other sexually
We get along so well
But I think you should know that I might not be in love with you
When were together I love those nights
But when were apart I feel the emptiness
but there are times when I look in your eyes
And I see that I’m losing the whole of my life
Oh if I’m in love ill let you know if you’re the one I’m thinking of
And If you’re not the one then I’m moving on cos its not worth hanging on
Ooh you’re insatiable, girl you know how to pull my strings
Without me There’s a match that we can never seem to bring ourselves to talk about us
I really think that I could be in love with you
When we see each other, it feels so right
But right from the start you’re still my emptiness
But in the heat of the night
When it all feels alright
I’m left thinking what am I doing yeah
Oh if I’m in love ill let you know if you’re the one I’m thinking of
And If you’re not the one then I’m moving on cos its not worth hanging on
ooo yay
Please understand I don’t mean to hurt you but I’ve gotta get with my life
And I feel it in my heart that were better off apart and I’m left thinking what am I doing
Oh if I’m in love ill let you know if you’re the one I’m thinking of
And If you’re not the one then I’m moving on cos its not worth hanging on
Oh if I’m in love ill let you know ill let you know ill let you know if you’re the one I’m thinking of
And If you’re not the one then I’m moving on cos its not worth hanging on
(Ooooo if I’m in love)
I’ll let ya know if I’m thinking about ya
I’ll let you
I’ll let you
I’ll let you.

In his world of innocence
Leaving love in his footprints
He can feel the love in his fathers arms
Feel the love and care that his daddy shares in his arms
Though he’s still young and far to go
Baby boy there’s so much he has to know
Living in his world of innocence
Leaving love behind in his footprints

You’re my sweet prince
Lay your head down to sleep
My dear sweet prince close your eyes
You’re my sweet prince
lay your head down on me
Sweet prince it will all be fine

Oceans of the deep blue sea
Through your eyes I see the reflection of me
I can feel your heart beat with mine
Always be here by my side and you’ll be fine

You’re my sweet prince
Lay your head down to sleep
My dear sweet prince close your eyes
You’re my sweet prince
Lay your head down on me
Sweet prince it will all be fine

You’re my sweet prince
Lay your head down to sleep
Dear sweet prince close you’re eyes

Sweet prince

Sweet prince

You’ll Be Alright

Open your eyes ‘cos another day is dawning,
Children of the moon, can you hear them all calling?
Skies open up and an angel starts falling,
Listen to their beats, can you hear them hollering?

Stop in the morning, through to the evening
Dance like you’re the only one around
Move like you want it
Go move like you need it,
Dancing it up till the sun goes down

Free your mind ‘cos tonight we’re gonna break it down
Shake, make it funky down
Get so high as the toxins in your body
Are the bass and the drums and the roar, roar, roar
We’re right on time, and all is fine
If you’ve lost your senses, here have mine and..

Lose yourself in the time
you will wait till the evening time
till the sunshine breaks.

Ahh… Come on!
Open your eyes ‘cos another day is dawning,
Children of the moon, can you hear them all calling?
Skies open up and an angel starts falling,
Listen to their beats, can you hear them hollering?

Stop in the morning, through to the evening
Dance like you’re the only one around
Move like you want it
Go move like you need it,
Dancing it up till the sun goes down.

Till the sun goes down…

Go Come on for this makes for hysteria
You feelin’ what we bring to y’all..
Peace and love guess I get it all tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight…

Fire is burning on and there’s children in the forest playing
Just come forget this to forget the “?” hun the forests prey
Yeaaah… noo noooo …yeaaaah eeyy..

Till the sun goes down
Till the sun goes
Sun goes down
Sun goes down
Sun goes down, Sun goes down

Open your eyes ‘cos another day is dawning,
Children of the moon, can you hear them all calling?
Skies open up and an angel starts falling,
Listen to their beats, can you hear them hollering?

Stop in the morning, through to the evening
Dance like you’re the only one around
Move like you want it
Move like you need it,
Dancing it up till the sun goes down!
(Till Fade!)

(Chorus)
Don’t be telling me i ow ya somthing,dont be makin something out of nothing, pass the ball an 1 thing an a nothing so you wont get a place in my heart, so you wont get a place in my heart

(Verse 2)

thats why I’ll never get a place in my heart

(Chorus)
Ooooo

Ego don’t ever get you anywhere but now I know to speak up let my voice be known
I won’t sit back pretend my name hasn’t been called
As if I’m running from my goal
I’ll face the music with my soul
Don’t talk to me like I am just a child
I’ve sold more stories than you’ve ever told
Don’t be fooled softest touch but selfish growth
This driving force won’t let me go

If you’re telling me the truth
Should be something plain to see
And you don’t even know what the truth is meant to be
Listen to what I say
Cause unassailably and scientifically it’s on the money

Advice is something we can choose to take
I’ve learnt from teachers that could orchestrate this whole wide world
You’ve got to think between the lines and on your feet
Step up to the grade with no defeat
Appearances are deceptive look at me

You’ll say what you can to try and break my stand
You just try your best but I’ll keep on bouncing back
It’s all in your head go deal with that instead.

Start spreading the news
I’m leaving today
I want to be a part of it
New York, New York

These vagabond shoes
Are longing to stray
Right through the very heart of it
New York, New York

I wanna wake up in a city
That doesn’t sleep
And find I’m king of the hill
Top of the heap

These little town blues
Are melting a way
I’ll make a brand-new start of it
In old New York

If I can make it there
I’ll make it anywhere
It’s up to you
New York, New York

New York, New York
I want to wake up
In a city that never sleeps
And find I’m a number one, top of the list
King of the hill, a number one

These little town blues
Are melting a way
I’m gonna make a brand-new start of it
In old New York

And… if I can make it there
I’m gonna make it anywhere
It’s up to you
New York, New York

I’ve got your picture
That you gave to me
And it’s signed with love
Just like it used to be
The only thing different
The only thing new
I’ve got your picture
She’s got you

I’ve got the records
That we used to share
And they still sound the same
As when you were here
The only thing different
The only thing new
I’ve got the records
She’s got you

I’ve got your memory
Or has it got me?
I really don’t know
But I know it won’t let me be

I’ve got your class ring
That proved you cared
And it still looks the same
As when you gave it dear
The only thing different
The only thing new
I’ve got these little things
She’s got you

Pintor nacido en mi tierra,
con el pincel extranjero,
pintor que sigues el rumbo,
de tantos pintores viejos.

Aunque la virgen sea blanca,
píntale angelitos negros,
que también se van al cielo,
todos los negritos buenos.

Pintor si pintas con amor,
¿por qué desprecias su color?,
si sabes que en el cielo,
también los quiere Dios.

Pintor de santos alcoba,
si tienes alma en el cuerpo,
por qué al pintar en tus cuadros,
te olvidaste de los negros.

Siempre que pintas iglesias,
pintas angelitos bellos,
pero nunca te acordaste,
de pintar un ángel negro
