LOVE & FORGIVE (2009)

Habibi, be my baby 4x

Watchin' the news
Muslims & Jews
Are reaching out their hands
To their neighbors, their friends

‘cause every man
Can understand
His children need 2 live (so)
He's got to love & forgive

Refrein:
We'll Make everybody see
(You can)Be who you want 2 B
(So) If that's what you're dreaming of
(You can) B with the 1 U love!

If you see your so-called enemies 
As beautiful people lookin' for peace
Would you still kill them 
‘cause someone else tells you to?
It will change your entire world;
It will change the love in you!

(So) Make everybody see
(You can) Be who you want 2 B
(So) If that's what you're dreaming of
(You've got to) B with the 1 U love!

KOOR:
LOVE YOUR BROTHER
LOVE YOUR SISTER
JUST REACH OUT YOU HAND

& EVERY FATHER
WILL SAVE HIS CHILDREN
HE WILL UNDERSTAND


Refrein:
Make everybody see
(You can)Be who you want 2 B
(So) If that's what you're dreaming of
(You can) B with the 1 U love!

LOVE YOUR BROTHER
LOVE YOUR SISTER
JUST REACH OUT YOUR HAND

& EVERY FATHER
WILL SAVE HIS CHILDREN
HE WILL UNDERSTAND

A DIFFERENT MAN (2009)

Baby, if you hold me
I will give it all it takes
‘Cause we both look for a lover
But we sometimes make mistakes

We don't want to hurt each other
But I know sometimes I do
‘Cause when you opened up your heart
I wasn't not always there for you

I don't want to write this song once more, no,no,no
I'll be a better man then before - that's for sure

Now you're lying on the ground
And you're scared of being free
But we are meant to fly
Up there where we can see

It's time to make a change
And I know I'll not just try
Together we will make it
Together we can fly

I don't want to write these words once more
I'll be a different man that's for sure

Today I'm gonna change, Yes I can
For you I'm gonna be a different man

NO MORE SONG (2009)

If you go away
I won't follow you
If you go away
I will see it through
All your words have taken
my dreams away
There is nothing left to say

If you go away
And have set me free
I will sing my song
In a different key
I won't try again
‘cause I finally see
What we've had is lost
‘Cause you've stopped lovin' me
I am through with love 
Like a raging sea
Times have been too rough;
You are free!

No more us
No more we
making love
You are free
No more you
holdin' me
No more song

If you go away
I will fight no more
‘Cause I know at last
You'll be gone for sure
I have learned you won't listen to my plea
I won't pray this time
(That) You'll come back to me
Only time will tell
If I'm right or wrong 
But I'll sing you no more song

No more us
No more we 
making love
You are free
No more you
holdin' me
No more song

 

 

A BETTER MAN (2009)

Oh baby, come on over.
We can have a real good time!
When I'm with you I'll take my chances
And I'll show you what romance is.

Now, you say you want another man
So tell me something I don't understand
What you feel when we're together
(You say) I make you feel so much better
(When I'm with you) I'm a better man!

What do I have 2 do 2 make you mine?
‘cause I don't wanna b 2nd in line!
So loose the other guy you call your friend
And please, baby, baby, baby understand
I'm a(the) better man

Chorus: -You make me feel so much better 2x-

GUITARSOLO

And ever since we've been together
You know I'm feeling so much better (so much better)
(When I'm with you) I'm a better man!
-You make me feel so much better -
A better man -You make me feel so much better -
You make me feel a better man -You make me feel ... -
So much better -You make me feel so much better

BORDERLINES (2009)

I keep on changing our answering machine 
And I try not to run for the phone
And I'm still checking for your e-mail
But I'm getting used to sleeping alone

I know we were lovers
But sometimes love can be so strange
Always something between us
That we just couldn't change

Borderlines
Together we would travel cross the borderlines
When love is new you only see the sun that shines
With no borderlines to your heart
Borderlines
I'm sorry that I sometimes crossed your borderlines
I never meant to hurt you, never saw the signs
of the borderlines to your heart

I know you feel it's better this way
But sometimes I can still be so sad
‘Cause you were the greatest love
That I never had

I know I still love you
But now I don't know what to do
‘Cause I can't make you love me, 
And I'm scared we're through

And I don't want to be alone
But it's time - time to go on - on my own.

Borderlines
Together we would travel cross the borderlines
When love is new you only see the sun that shines
With no borderlines to your heart
Borderlines
I'm sorry that I sometimes crossed your borderlines
So blinded by your smile I couldn't see the signs
of the borderlines to your heart

 

Let him go

Hey little girl
You know it's very late
It's getting dark
I know that you're afraid

So go on home
Where daddy's gonna hold you
You won't get hurt
That's what your mama's told you
(But) you are scared...

So scared he'll hurt the little girl inside you
Because he always gets his way and she will leave you

All alone ... You are on your own
You're all alone ...You are on your own

Now go back home
And tell him it still hurts
Don't be afraid
I know you'll find the words

And maybe you can stop this endless fight
Let go off the angry man inside (you)
You have to let him go
The angry man inside
Let him go
You have to let him go

I (You) always fight your father,
Well, he's not even here
(But) He's always there between us
Will he ever disappear?

You have to let him go
The angry man inside
Let him go
You have to let him go

Hey little girl
You're tryin' to find the words
Though you're afraid
You tell him how it hurts ...
