I BELIEVE

(Composto 2010)

 



I believe my talent will show

I believe my talent will grow

Ain’t nobody gonna’ tell me to stop

Ain’t nobody gonna’ tell me to turn my back away

 

'Cause you, you’re soul destroying

And you, you think you know what’s best for me

But I, I’m multiplying

And I, I know what’s best for me, I know what’s best for me, I know what’s best for me

 

So we must work it out

The time for change is now

I feel my time has come

'Cause I know my destiny, I know my destiny, I know my destiny

 

'Cause all we need for a light to shine through

Is the right chemistry between you and me

'Cause all we need for us to grow new

Is belief in me is belief in me is belief in me

 

So bring it on build me up take me on

And let’s get down to it we’re gonna get through it

So bring it on build me up take me on

And let’s get down to it we’re gonna get through it

 

'Cause I believe we can do it

'Cause I believe we’ll get through it

And I can see that we’re moving

Moving to a better place

 

We’ve got the gas

We’ve got the engine

We’ve got the mass

We’re never ending

 

We’ve got the gas

We’ve got the engine

We’ve got the mass

We’re never ending

HONEY

(Composto 2012)

 



When the summer sun splashes on your face

You realise this is your place

The palm trees whistle in your ear

You close your eyes, think back to all the years

 

Traffic jams, friendly shaking hands, make you feel at home

Rice and bean philosophy made you bold and strong

Trustworthy policy was on the screen, far away from home

A close knit family, with honey melody, turned ambition on

 

Indian, black and and white spiritual diversity

Spice things up with British time for tea

The traditional queen and her monarchy

They liven up with new democracy

 

The classic underground from So-Ho town and into Oxford Circus

The birds and bees among the trees, organic londoners

Hackney taxi ranks, double decker lights, excuse me, oh yes sir

A future with a twist, my hands will work for this, in a hungy megalopolis

In a hungy, oh a hungry, in a hungy megalopolis

ZILIAN

(Composto 2010)

 



Beggars, buyers and workers on a crowded street
All the people feel the heat
But continue to walk on their feet
A thoughtful man, he comes to me and says
You wanna know how I feel?
Sit down and listen it’s time to get real
 
You ain’t stealing my sunshine
You ain’t taking my imagination, no, no
With your political corruption
Your corporate indoctrination
Social hypocrisy
Ain’t getting close to me, no, no
We’ve got a mind to think alone
We play in our own tone, tone
 
He said we, got to get up, got to stand up, got to be ready to go
Got to get up, got to stand up, got to be ready to go
Got to get up, got to stand up, got to be ready, ready, ready to go
 
Cause hey we are Brazilian we’re more than a zilian
And hey we’re looking up front, we ain’t giving up
Cause hey we are Brazilian we’re more than a zilian
And hey we’ll show you the way, anytime of day
 
The rain has come, with it the floods
Nobody can get back home
So they keep on working to the bone
Hope permeates, people don’t stop
I can see it in their eyes
Got a feeling that they will rise
 
You ain’t stealing my thunder
You ain’t keeping my, fascination, no, no
We’ve got a mind to think alone
We play in our own tone, tone
 
He said we, got to get up, got to stand up, got to be ready to go
Got to get up, got to stand up, got to be ready to go
Got to get up, got to stand up, got to be ready, ready, ready to go
 
Cause hey we are Brazilian we’re more than a zilian
And hey we’re looking up front, we ain’t giving up
Cause hey we are Brazilian we’re more than a zilian
And hey we’ll show you the way, anytime of day

REAL FANTASY

(Composto 2013)

 



Life, life is like, like a board game, without rules

And time, time goes by, no beginning and no end

Look in your souls, find a meaning, for your play

Choose an adventure, love and glory, your own way

 

We make up all the names, give seconds to days and run through the maze

What if all trees are blue, and mirrors don’t reflect you, a one time déjà-vu

We drink champagne in glasses, take our chances in vintage romances

We sit around the tables, invent the fables and believe the facts

 

I said life, life is like, like a board game, without rules

And time, time goes by, no beginning and no end

Look in your souls, find a meaning, for your play

Choose an adventure, love and glory, your own way

 

Welcome to my world, this world has set me free, has shown me liberty

Take the scenic route, with dreams that change for you, a little home for two

Revealing and concealing, your mouth and eyes, made me realise

The human connection, together me must try, a warm hello goodbye, hello goodbye, hello goodbye

 

So fly to the sky, be your own spy, grow old and never die

Swim to Japan, greet me with a grin, show the magic from within

Cause these are the days, rules weren’t made to be obeyed, there’s always more to say

Made up reality or a truthful fantasy, what is it going to be? What is it going to be? What is it going to be?

WE KNOW

(Composto 2010)

 



Monday morning I wake up go to work

What am I doing I don’t know what I want

I realize that nothing has changed

All is tidy, all is mundane

 

The fields are green and the sun is shining

But where is my babe, she should be by my side

She’s the light of my life, she’s the smile of my face

With her on my mind there is no better place

 

I’m running to meet her, kiss her cheeks

Tell her I love her and that we make a good team

She’s the light of my life, she’s the smile of my face

With her on my mind there is no better place

 

We want happiness for all

Helping hands for when we fall

We know, we know

 

We want happiness for all

We want spring before the fall

We know, we know

 

We want fair people in our home

We want to know our kids have grown

We know, we know, we know

We know, we know, we know, we know

FORGOTTEN WORDS

(Composto 2013)

 



The door is open, come by and say hello

You know I’ve missed you, the memories come and go

Do you realise, you are a part of me

Even at a distance, I want to set you free

 

Oh, ho, uh, oh, please, please, please understand me

Oh, ho, uh, oh, babe, babe, the best things in life are free

 

The door is open, come by and say hello

You know I’ve missed you, the memories come and go

Do you realise, you are a part of me

Even at a distance, I want to set you free

 

Oh, ho, uh, oh, please, please, please understand me

Oh, ho, uh, oh, babe, babe, the best things in life are free

 

Second chance is what we got

A better life is right in front

And with you here all is so much better

It’s all love and care we’ll protect you I swear

 

Short temper and violence

Are things we won’t tolerate

And with you here all is so much better

It’s all love and care we’ll protect you I swear

 

When you were on your own, you learnt not to waste time

Now you’ve learnt a thing or two and like a glass of red wine

Drums, undress, I am impressed, I catch you in the act

Close and far, teasing my sight, my sweet and sour zest

 

Please, please, please understand me

Oh, ho, uh, oh, babe, babe, the best things in life are free

MY BABY (THE BEST OF ME)

(Composto 2014)

 



Yeah, e yeah e ye-yeah!

If you wanna, be my baby

If you wanna, be my baby

You gotta show me, that you want it

You gotta show me, that you got it

Yeah, e yeah e ye-yeah!

 

I see your eyes, I know your lies

I walk right by you, with no goodbyes

Well I want you, but I can’t have you

Well I need you, but I can’t take you

You’ll get the best of me, truly the best of me, only the best of me. Simply the best! Only the best! Of me.

 

There are no heroes, there are no villains,

Just you and I, your soul and mine

If you want to see, what I see

Just close your eyes, and come with me.

 

Yeah, e yeah e ye-yeah, oh-ho-oh

Oh-uh-oh-uh-oh, uh-oh-oh-ooo

You’ll get the best of me, truly the best of me, only the best of me, simply the best! Only the best! Of me.

 

ALL I THINK OF IS YOU

(Composto 2011)

 



All I Think Of Is You

All I Think Of Is You

All I Think Of Is You

All I Think Of Is You

 

Dark eyes a beautiful colour

My love there is no other

Soft hands a feminine smile

She’s even travelled the Nile

 

So come on my femme, I want you here

To light up my fire, every day every year

You’re looking so fine, we’ll take a step at a time

In a few weeks to come I’ll have you all undone

 

We listen to reggae, pop, rock

You feel cold, I feel hot

Your glowing eyes and luscious thighs

Are the reason for my sun to rise

 

All I Think Of Is You

All I Think Of Is You

All I Think Of Is You

All I Think Of Is You

 

She knows what she wants

I know how to guide her

We’ll be together forever

Our lives will be a pleasure

 

So come on my femme, I want you here

To light up my fire, every day every year

You’re looking so fine, we’ll take a step at a time

In a few weeks to come I’ll have you all undone

 

We listen to reggae, pop, rock

You feel cold, I feel hot

Your glowing eyes and luscious byes

Are the reason for my sun to rise

CAPTAIN

(Composto 2012)

 



Driving along the sinuous roads,

Sailing through the stormy waves,

Flying past the treacherous winds,

Sturdy captain holds the reins.

 

Falling down abysmally,

Shady acceleration scrapes the skin,

Shooting up, oooh, so heavenly,

Bright peace draws from within.

 

So catch up if you can,

Stay if you please,

Will no longer falter,

He is ready for the plead.

 

Hey, finally arrives at bay,

Identity glares with truth,

Secrets need no longer stay,

For happiness to rendezvous.

Hey, finally arrives at bay,

Identity glares with truth,

Secrets need no longer stay,

For happiness to rendezvous.

 

Declaration shout for fight,

Direction points from dark to light,

And in the end when all turns still,

The compass was his own free will.

And in the end, when all turns still,

The compass was his own free will.

UNFINISHED BUSINESS

(Composto 2010)

 



We had a conversation

On a late Friday night

Things were left unsaid

And now we better make it right

 

You said our streets would be clean

That our parks would be green

You said we'd have fresh water

But those are things we can't see

 

You ain't running away

I'm here waiting for you

You’ve got unfinished business, with us

 

You said you'd give me a raise

It was a matter of days

You said things would get better now

But take a look at my face

 

You ain't running away

I'm here waiting for you

You’ve got unfinished business, with us

 

Unfinished business is what you are,

Is what you do, is what you make me go through

Unfinished business is what I'm not,

What I don't do, what makes me want to renew

 

Unfinished business is what you are,

Is what you do, is what you make me go through

Unfinished business is what I'm not,

What I don't do, what makes me want to renew

 

Come back here, we got things to talk about

Come back here, we got to sort it out

Come back here, we got unfinished business

 

Come back here, we got things to talk about

Come back here, we got to sort it out

Come back here, we got unfinished business

 

Come back here, we got things to talk about

Come back here, we got to sort it out

Come back here, we got unfinished business

 

Come back here, we got things to talk about

Come back here, we got to sort it out

Come back here, we got unfinished business

WAVE RIDER

(Composto 2016)

 



Fortune tellers, revealing the past

Politicians, putting people in last

Guns and weapons, being used in the class

Where are we now?

 

You see people, riding the wave,

The wave of insanity, people like you and me

Tell me now, be you friend or foe,

Do we have a chance, or should we all let go?

Giving up on those who sound right and do wrong

Living beside those who look weak but are strong

In the humble journey for change

Working for a better day

 

You see people, riding the wave,

The wave of humanity, people like you and me

Tell me when you look into the past,

Do you see a chance, in making our people last?

Individual ambitions, manipulated opinions

Collective fears, with no power only tears

The will to move on, in the light of day

But you’re in the dark,  who will show you the way?

You see people, riding the wave,

The wave of their destiny, people like you and me

Tell me now, be you friend or foe,

Do we have a chance, or should we all let go?

 

Tell me, when you look into the past,

Do you see a chance, in making our people last?

 

Tell me now, whilst we’re on this boat,

Have we got the time, for a final vote?

Have we got the time, for a final vote?

Have we got the time, for a final vote?
