Track Name: Wake Up
WAKE UP

Yes, I've really been thinking about your body
Yes, I've really been thinking about your face
Yes, I've really been living inside a daydream...
C'mon let's wake up the human race

Lately I've been thinking about all the possibilities…
Makes me want to sing and shout, about how crazy love can be
I don't know what's going on, I'm checkin my astrology
It feels like somebody’s turning up the heat
On the inside, nowhere to hide
I get off my laptop and get outside
Into the sunshine where everything's alright
I band together with the BAND of LIGHT
I send my praise to god within,
And then I see your face again,
You know it makes me want to sing a song about you girl...

Yes, I've really been thinking about your body
Yes, I've really been thinking about your face
You know we've really been living inside a daydream...
C'mon, let's wake up the human race
(repeat)

Finally I figured out what's been taking me so long
To open up and let it out, and sing for you my happy song
I used to be afraid to lose - the love that I was holding on
But now I see my love is like the dawn…
Yes like the sunshine, I rise every day
I give thanks and love guides the way
and all the answers are found within
I play the game ‘till everybody wins
I don't need no sympathy, even when I feel lonely
But sometimes I wish that you could hold me…

Yes, I've really been thinking about your body
Yes, I've really been thinking about your face
You know we've really been living inside a daydream...
C'mon, let's wake up the human race

I sing lord, I'm all alone in the middle of the night
Asking who's still awake? Are you still awake?
I'm singing lord, I'm all alone in the middle of the night
asking who's still awake? Are you still awake?
I'm singing lord, I'm all alone in the middle of the night
asking who's still awake? Are you still awake? Still awake?
Yeah! Who!??

guitar solo

Wake up all the children and we'll play
Rejoice and sing it's a brand new day

(let's sing it together)
Yes, I've really been thinking about your body
Yes, I've really been thinking about your face
You know, you've really been living inside a daydream...
Let's wake up the human race

Wake up all the children and we'll play
Rejoice and sing it's a brand new day

Wake Up

Track Name: Get 2 Know U (feat J Brave and Shylah Ray Sunshine)
GET TO KNOW YOU

Ever Since I met you
I've been so amazed
At how much love I'm feeling
Every single day
My heart is so wide open
My body is crystalline
The music of the universe is dancing in my mind

(chorus)

Can we play?
Just like we used to do
I'm so ready
to really get to know you
Can we play?
Just like we used to do
I'm so ready
to really get to know you

(Shylah)
I want to get to know you
I want to get to know you
I want to sing with you
I want to play with you
I want to dance with you

I want to get to know you
I want to get to know you
I want to sing with you
I want to play with you
I want to be with you

Now that we've been hangin'
I don't know what to do
I find myself daydreaming
and always thinking about you
my heart is so wide open
the light is coming down
i gotta say I feel you babe, from my roots to my crown!

Can we play?
Just like we used to do
I'm so ready
To really get to know you
Can we play?
Just like we used to do
I'm so ready
To really get to know you
(repeat)

(Shylah)
I want to get to know you
I want to get to know you bettah
Said can we play, can we dance and sing today
I want to get to know you
I want to get to know you

(backrounds)
I want to get to know you babe
I want to get to know you bettah
I want to love and squeeze you babe
I want to get to know you bettah

(J Brave)
I just want to rub your belly, maybe kiss your ears
Let your fears go away with the touch of my lips
You're a goddess, and I will never let you forget
You're so beautiful, from your pores to your cuticles
The type of chic you swear could be a model
An independent woman just like Frida Kahlo
She never follows, looks good in a kimono
Half Japanese so I called her Yoko Ono
Cher and Sonny Bono makin' tunes together
Martha Stewart in the home, she knit me a sweater
Go getter, real love, down with the movement
Coretta Scott King, she supports my music
The truth is you're truly one of a kind
With your beauty, and your booty, you're a beautiful mind
So refined by design, I feel you're so divine
For the million dollar question you would be my life line

(let's break it down)

Yeah-hoo!

Can we play?
Just like we used to do
I'm so ready
To really get to know you
Can we play?
Just like we used to do
I'm so ready
To really get to know you
(repeat out)

Track Name: Yestiny
YESTINY

I am an angel man
Sometimes a lonely man
I do the best I can
To remember who I am
and there are thousands more
one hundred forty four
who wash up on Earth's shores
to open up the doors

This is what the angels do
Inside their human suits
they look like me and you
but I can see right through
Oh, and some have lost their way
and their sanity
It can be hard to play
Inside humanity…

(chorus)

Gone are the days where we faded away
In the face of our Yestiny
Now is the age where we break through the cage
I will show you the best of me

The best of me

I am an angel man
Sometimes a super man
I do the best I can
To remember who I am
and there are thousands more
one hundred forty four
who wash up on Earth's shores
to open up the doors

Gone are the days where we faded away
In the face of our Yestiny
Now is the age where we break through the cage
I will show you the best of me

(repeat)
Track Name: Call On The Rain
CALL ON THE RAIN

Well it takes a little rain
To help the flowers grow
And it takes a little rain
To make a rainbow
Yes it takes a little rain
To clear the air
And it takes a little rain
To sooth the truth you bear...

So call on the rain, call on the rain to come
And wash it all away
And I'll be right there
When you call on the rain
Call on the rain to wash it all away
And I promise you that the pain
Will go away
If we forgive
Forgive ourselves today
There will be Rainbows
If we call on the rain

Well it takes a tear
To clear your eyes
And it takes the night
To have a sunrise
Yes it takes a little rain
to water the fields, oh yea
And it takes a little change
To see what's real

So call on the rain, call on the rain to come
And wash it all away
And I'll be right there
When you call on the rain
Call on the rain to wash it all away
And I promise you that the pain
Will go away
If we forgive
Forgive ourselves today
There will be Rainbows

When we call on the rain
Call on the Rain
Call on the Rain
Oooh Call on the Rain
(repeat)

And I promise you that the pain
Will go away
If we forgive
Forgive ourselves today
There will be rainbows...
There will be rainbows

There will be rainbows
(Rainbows, rainbows, rainbows)

You know there's gonna be rainbows.
(Gonna be rainbows)

SLOW DOWN

Slow down
You're moving too fast
Slow down
It's not gonna last
if you keep it up like this
Why don't you turn around and kiss me

Slow down
Your mind's on the run
Slow down
It's not very fun
and if you keep it up like this

Why don't you realize that you
are already in paradise

DON'T FORGET 2 GROUND

Well the sunset skies are setting blue
But still my eyes are set on you
Your crystal waters call me in
I slide into your spin
Surrender fits me like a glove
I spread my water wings like a dolphin dove
I sing the songs of divine love
and send it all to you

So let's raise it up, and hold it down
Spread the love and light around
We pave the wave with sacred sound
and Don't forget 2 Ground

Don't forget 2 Ground, baby

Ooh, said I want to ground this love, babe

Like lava flows into the sea
My ruby heart glows with creativity
To birth the New Earth for you and me
Our love is finally free
Surrender fits me like a glove
I spread my water wings like a dolphin dove
I sing the songs of divine love
It all comes back to me

So let's raise it up, and hold it down
Spread the love and light around
We pave the wave with sacred sound

Ooh, said I want to ground this love, babe

Track Name: Lay Down Your Shield
LAY DOWN YOUR SHIELD


You're looking for the love again
In temporary lovers and friends
Never really looking at the one in the mirror
Do you really think you can hide?
And keep yourself locked up inside
When the sun is shining right in your eyes, my dear
There's nothing to fear
It's time to remember why we're here

I see that you have come so far
and traveled many lives and stars
just to realize who you really are
I feel you reaching out tonight
in the darkest hour comes the light
Everything is gonna be alright
I'll be with you tonight
All you have to do is let me in…

Oh, lay down
Lay down your shield
and tell me how it feels
When you look deep inside

Lay down your armor
Lay down your fear
Lay down your sword, beloved
There's no enemies here
There's no one to fight
Nothing left to defend
Cause I'm gonna love you till the end

~Instrumental break~

I'm finally on my knees again
In the temple of beloved within
My story's in the tears running down my face
It's taken me so long to see
That the love that truly sets you free
Is the love that you decide to be, my friends
It's the love that never ends
All you have to do is let it in

Lay down your shield
and tell me how you feel
when you look into my eyes
~
Lay down your shield
and tell me how it feels
when you look deep inside

Lay down your armor
Lay down your fear
Lay down your sword, beloved
There's no enemies here
There's no one to fight
Nothing left to defend
Cause I'm gonna love you till the end
