Track Name: The Gift Of Music
Verse 1:
With open eyes and an open mind, an open intention to live with peace inside
We’re bound to find the truth in time
Gonna spread these wings above the ground I fly
And I won’t look back, never wonder why, went to the left, went to the right
Had to loose myself to find the light and the music kept the movement alive
So breathe in and breathe out, let it take you to a higher ground
Soothe your soul with feet to dance just give it a chance, find true romance
Let the gift of music breathe you in, take you in

Music is the melody, I find love in the strangest forms
With the peace inside our family, ain’t no harm, negativity is gone, we’re moving on
Moving on from hatred, greed & lies, movin’ back home
Fell in love with the music and the rest just ain’t important no more

Verse 2:
With open eyes and an open mind
Best you be countin’ your blessings na don’t be wastin’ time
Truth inside for all of us to find
Negativity grows where the beast resides, positivity flows where the love divides
And the children cry til they free there mind, none but ourselves can free our minds
Mr. Bob Marley he always said it right my friend
Find your voice through the noise and live free with a choice
Don’t let nobody tell ya it can’t be done, humble yourself you already won
Let the gift of music, bring you in it has begun
Track Name: Wake On A Plane
If I wake on a plane I’m a be okay
Peace sign in the air ya know I’m feelin’ free
Wonder where I’m gonna go today
If I wake on a train west bound to the bay
Tell my people that I swear I’ll be back someday
Tell ‘em I was born to live this way, like a nomad

Verse 1:
I’m a be like my old self, talkin’ about my true self
Must love one’s self n’ if I get out of here alive
I’m a cut ties with my stagnant ways, ya know I’m gonna take my heart’s advise
If I should run, if I should hide, if I’m gonna leave everything behind
It’s a long road when you’re on your own, no one to direct you where to go
Gotta take the risk, gotta follow it & you’re never gonna be the same again
Have faith in yourself and know you’re on your way home
Verse 2:
Well I said hey yo what you got on me, I’m a free soul we go
Wherever we please and we rock n’ roll to break of dawn got it goin’ on
Na never gonna stop that’s fo sho
Gotta keep it fresh, keep that feeling blessed
If you ever grow old then ya failed the test
It’s a long road and you’re gonna stay young if you keep that feeling strong
Pre-Chorus --> Chorus
Track Name: Balance & Purpose
Verse 1:
Well I don’t pay much attention to the haters, I’m a fair guy
I like to see both sides of the table with my two eyes
In this crazy life one thing I’ve learned, you’re gonna get by
You help your brother when he’s down he return the favor it’s all god it’s alright but

Flip on the TV, I can’t believe, the world is fighting, mother nature’s crying
Wake in the morning all I want to see is my people rising, together uniting
When are we gonna go back home?

Livin’ life with a balance & purpose, time will tell what my worth is
Got this love for sale and ya know my heart is well, now I say
Times flies, gotta make the most
Got the best of friends, to the top we go
Confident in ourselves, the world is ours
And we help our fellow man, our fellow girl
Give them a hand, give them the world

Verse 2:
Well I’m a hard working man stackin’ up that paper, ya know I’m on the grind
I like to get it while it’s hot don’t wait for favors, but on the inside
When I put that money aside to find the truth in life
All I really need is right in front of my eyes, love conquers all in time

Pre-Chorus --> Chorus
Track Name: Flow
Verse 1:
I’m heading out look over me, lord knows I’m sure to fall in a beautiful display
Behold the great wide open comin’ to take you where you’re meant to be
At least that’s what they say and I found the truth is showin’up where you least expect it
There is desire in my darkest hour to ride ride the flow of life, high & low it goes
You never know just where your life will roam, flow and you flow
In this dream that we call life, I find its not that hard to become whoever you want to be
Fear not no strings attached you drop that weight right off your back
You put yourself where your mind can be free
So many they lock their chains, throw away the keys
You can’t live in a penitentiary
Let go ride the flow of life high or low it swings
You never know just where this life will lead

No you can’t follow, not none of their dreams
Lived this whole life just trying to find some peace
So now you find its time, time to open up the mind and live free

Verse 2:
Coming down, down, down, is there anyone to catch my fall?
I pick myself up again, know in these hard times I find grace & love
Staring right back at me so I let go and rewind my life
Let it all go just to watch it all unwind
If I design the world through my eyes, that’s mine to define
Live it up, run with the flow, never gonna let it go
Track Name: Worry They May
Worry they may, I’m a be who I be
Everyday with my best, honest living with love & respect
Then they tellin’ me the craziest things, talkin’ about who I should be
Man I’m a just be myself, tell you what now all is well

Verse 1:
Can’t teach the flow, can’t teach the rhythm or the soul
So let me go on the microphone with no control
Straight from the soul I’m from the 303, we be blazin’ new paths
Born and raised in Colorado, I’m blessed believe that
Respect my roots, all the ones before me and that’s the truth
They taught me knowledge of a better way and day to day I remember you
Take me out into the world, all these different faces from all these different places

But then there come a breed with a common greed and they must control, manipulate
They want to put us in a box and tie it all off well oh I ain’t no slave to authority

Verse 2:
Gotta do my thing, gotta do it well
We’re in the struggle together unless you couldn’t tell
Working day by day just to get by and we party every day just to get by
Might blaze up on the smoke, the man gonna put ya down
Might dress a little funky, the man gonna put ya down
Might grow dread locks, the man gonna put ya down
Tell the man what’s up and he gonna put ya down
But yo its 2016, nobody got the time for that
You know I ain’t holding back no censorship, no need for that
So tell it like it is and I’m a spit it right back
And if you can’t handle the truth then you better face that with
Pre-Chorus --> Chorus
Track Name: Deep Inside Your Soul
Verse 1:
Life is a divine calling and when you truly understand your calling
You're going to rise like a bird, fly free in the wind
With a beautiful flow and a passion within
There's an open road where no one goes
If you believe in yourself then who the hell knows
What you could achieve, where you're going to be
Five years looking back still living the dream
Your reality is yours to choose
If you make the right moves, stay tight on the groove
You're going to change the world, make it a better place
I believe in you and today's a new day

Deep inside your soul there's a message
An open world if you just reach out there and grab it
Deep inside your soul, deep inside you know
Deep inside your soul there's a message
I see it in your eyes and I can feel it in your presence
Deep inside your soul, deep inside you know

Verse 2:
So she hop on a plane and move away
Said I can't live here in the U.S.A.
I gotta spread my wings, gotta fly away
But have faith in me I'll be back someday
There's an endless sky and I'm your alibi
You got whatever it takes, whatever you define
With that humble heart and that beautiful mind
You know the world is ours, someday together we'll fly
So rest easy know our love is strong and it only grows
We're gonna change the world, make it a better place
I believe in us and today's a new day
Track Name: A Second Chance
My love, I got this feeling in my heart
Won't go away, won't depart
I love you so, do believe I fucked it up this time
Took for granted love divine
I wanna be everything you're looking for and more
Wanna grow with you and soar
Could you forgive me? Give our love a second chance
Could I have with you this dance?

Verse 1:
Have faith in me, together we'll fly
Come and take my hand, show you a good time
Let me be the man you want by your side
Make you feel alive all the time
Top of the world, together we'll climb
If you want my hand, I'll be by your side
I'm a gentle man that wants you and I
Feeling alive day and night

But oh oh, I'm stuck in limbo, I'm stuck in limbo
Stuck in limbo, do not hear from you, cannot talk to you no
Verse 2:
When I returned home, part of me was gone
Found a chance to grow, overcome my wrongs
Bump in the road but our love is strong
Let me show you the man you deserved all along
Three years ago I gave you my heart
Now comin’ today, I want a fresh start
Can we find the way to fall in love for real
All over again, love genuine
Pre-Chorus --> Chorus
Track Name: Overcome
I swear I’ll find my way home, right out of this storm
Ya know the devil, he gonna try to bury me but never will I let him prevail

Verse 1:
Fell asleep at 5am in the morning and something telling me I gotta listen up, heed a warning
Burning the candle at both ends, no longer can I pretend
Gonna catch up to me when I am not looking and I know inside I’m better than that
And I wonder why it took me so long to realize my vice, my demise

I got the strength, the faith, man whatever it takes to overcome
Believe me when I come with the fire faith, the strength man
I got what it takes to overcome, I’m coming home

Verse 2:
Black out drunk at 5am in the morning
Something telling me I gotta wake up smell the coffee
Burning the candle at both ends, nevermore shall I pretend
Won’t catch up to me because I am ready to change my life from the inside
And each day I’m growing steady
So long to my vice, its my choice, its my life
Pre-Chorus --> Chorus
