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 (repeat )

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)

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)

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
