I’ve waited too long, I can’t act deaf-and-dumb A man is a man even if he’s treated like a bum I’m just a poor guy, I know I don’t have many means but Since we've been living under the same roof, I’ve never done bad things I work to death seven days a week I carry breeze blocks on the site, well that makes me sick I asked for a pay rise ‘cause I have done overtime But the boss said times are bad and I won’t get paid a dime Yet I can see hatred, poison in your eyes And I can see dislike, don't tell me no lies Yeah I can see the feelings that you wanna hide And the more you keep it inside baby Well the more It comes outside I do everything a man must do to prove his worth Is there anything here I wouldn’t be accused of? You want nice clothes, diamonds and rubys But let me tell you baby, life ain’t a bed of roses I wasn’t born yesterday, I know how you feel I’m not in a good situation, I’m becoming a bad deal I won’t change the world baby but I know what’s good for me And it’s livin’ in this old world with a little dignity I just wanna live in this world with my dignity You know all year long, I’m drowned in troubled waters 'Cause you give me hell so I don't wanna go further I also have rough times, now I can’t stand it anymore Right at the back of my mind, there’s another way I’m praying for. Yet I can see hatred, poison in your eyes And I can see dislike, don't tell me no lies Yeah I can see the feelings that you wanna hide And the more you keep it inside baby, well the more it comes outside And the more you hit me hard now baby, the more I die Said the more you hit me hard now baby, well the more I die

You have lots of ideas You know vocabulary You have theories, political biases Explaining your opinions, drawing conclusions You have such a full life With a sweet housewife And what about philosophy? Yeah you know the story... Teach me, teach me I got it but otherwise Do you have some values? I mean under this disguise Do you have some virtues? You have silicone Big shoots of hormone You do body building, liposuction And you have collagen, skin tanned without sun A botox forehead So it looks half-dead Now you’re talkin’ about the look Your private life is an open book, flaunted on facebook. I got it but otherwise Do you have some values? I mean under this disguise Do you have some virtues? I don't think so... 'Cause I just wanna know you Something a little bit new Well I just wanna see you Through all which is déjà-vu (Bis) You have Eden Park Hugo Boss from Hallmark You might be a star in your big racing car You totally show off, it’s so easy to scoff, And for a pathetic doll You start a street brawl Without an ounce of decency Lucky at all but unlucky, always busy busy. I got it but otherwise Do you have some values? I mean under this disguise Do you have some virtues? You have magazines, skin-tight blue-jeans You go window-shopping, You might be a queen, dreamin’ up the ideal man He’ll be your number one fan Just a bit more than your dog He’d like to go for a jog and he would unclog the bog And when at night you say « heel! » He’d wag his tail for real ! I got it but otherwise Do you have some values? I mean under this disguise Do you have some virtues? I don't think so.. ‘Cause I just wanna know you Something a little bit new I just wanna see you Through all wich is déjà-vu Yeah I just wanna know you Something a little bit new I just wanna see you Through all wich is déjà-vu I just wanna know you!

Oh my enemy, my fellow We share a weakness A jail for a soul and a cage for a sparrow A curse for justice Oh my enemy, my fellow We know a refuge Nestled in the arms of a sorrow Against the nature of things, we accuse Cruel is the fate, cold is the rain, Dust covers our feet, we accuse again. Time’s always at our heels but never tired But we hide the truth babe for a bitter break Strugglin’ with our own beliefs and doubts While voices are calling from our deepest ache The ache of the end The end we can’t relieve Things we don’t understand The aim we can’t achieve So we continue to blame Whereas God forgives We always judge and condemn Without a reprieve. Oh my enemy, my fellow We use the same ploy Refusing to reap what we sow For a sense of solace without joy My enemy, my fellow Shall we go along with the gist? And never know ourselves in the raw The mind where we touch the mist. A will to disarm, A way to exist It works like a charm to lower the fist Time will always push us forward As a friendly call to say what’s done is done From a distance, memories may seem stalwart But everything will be swept away by the run The run to the end The end’s an echo So that we understand There’s neither ally nor foe There’s a flame A long time ago No need to judge and condemn I just want you to know That we share a flame A long time ago No need to judge and condemn What we have to know Is that we share a flame A long time ago We just have to play the game We gotta let it grow ! We gotta let it grow ! We gotta let it grow ! We gotta let it grow !

Africa 05:26
It’s a song about a land from old times A far away plain dried by the clime I see the sun risin’ up in the bush's colors Tree stumps on the low side, and tasty flavors I feel the wind's mixing with the ashes And there, zebras run along the marshes Well, blow my shadow, would you rock me mama Beause I've got to go, I’ve got to go AFRICA... I will come back to you again. AFRICA... I wanna get you out of pain, get you out of pain. Now I’m drivin’ slowly on a dusty trail I see the old man's crowned when the young hears his tales Walking barefoot for three miles, a woman carries a bowl She looks at me a bit shy with a grin under a shawl I see flames whirl in the night And then, twigs burn on the campsite You can hold me in your arms, so I can keep faith I feel love baby, when I see your face AFRICA... I will come back to you again. AFRICA... I wanna get you out of pain, get you out of pain. You know I just have one shame And it’s still playing the same old phoney game While you're showing me the way to hope and smile within misery I’m just wondering, do we deserve a glow of sympathy? AFRICA... I will come back to you again. AFRICA... I wanna get you out of pain. AFRICA... I will come back to you again. AFRICA... I wanna get you out of pain, get you out of pain.

You have so many purposes I guess But only one Is the good one Yours So many gods to be blessed But only one Is the good one Yours So many mountains to climb But only one Is the good one Yours So many truths for a mind But only one Is the good one Yours So many chances in a throw So why do you think this one Ain't for you?

Give it all 04:22
The day has come You find a way to hold on Hard stone, roll alone Your heavy head drags on the ground Stars may shine above baby Your mind is always blue I’m sure that you can dig a hole But tell me where it leads you And I know sometimes the road’s crumbling Well it’s the same for everyone Even if some old cruel ghosts are laughing It should never stop you from givin' love So give it all now baby You gotta give it all now A whisper in your ear Just give it all now baby You gotta give it all now ‘Cause it weighs on you for years Don’t close your eyes Turning back when someone calls You know I’ve seen men pray to see your smile You gotta listen to your soul ‘Cause there’s nothing to lose And so much to give Some are trying to prove it When others find a way to believe, there’s one way babe! And I know sometimes the road may be long Well it's the same for everyone Even if some old trains are whistlin' a sad song It should never stop you from givin' love So give it all now baby You gotta give it all now A whisper in your ear Just give it all now baby You gotta give it all now ‘Cause It weighs on you for years Yeah give it all now baby You gotta give it all now If you need to shed a tear To give it all now baby You gotta give it all now And live with no fears

A family 04:25
I got a family The Lord is with me He gave me a family Who cares about me Said I have a family Lord, it's good to be With the love of my family So man, share in family Girl, take care of your family Well, I used to get away, To find my own way I’ve wandered along streets Deceived by the cheats Their fights for thrones The big clock and the hourly fees Hurt me to my bones They had no mercy for my pleas So when I found myself lost and lonely I've prayed the good lord to send me somebody Then who came to me? It was my mother, my father, my sister, my brother A family The Lord is with me He gave me a family Who cares about me Said I have a family Lord, it's good to be With the love of my family So man, share in family Girl, take care of your family From my low rent to a bedouin tent I’ve fled my everyday Always attracted by a new scent In Mali or in Mandalay But in every sip of wine A taste I can’t abide And in every sense of mine A knot was on the inside So if you're lost and you’re a stranger And you do a prayer to never be lonely I just wanna give you what I have and after We may be brothers, sisters, from the same Family Lord, it's good for me To build a new family I care about you, you care about me And we're a true family Lord, it’s good to be From the mankind family So man, share in family Girl, take care of your family.

So real 04:38
Night is falling The candle licks your skin What a soft blessing Your lips put me in a spin I’m just lying in the lightness The heat rises in a soft embrace All the beauty, all the grace In your shining curls and lace Hold me strong and forget the lost causes Crazy man thinks he can order the land I’m a man but I don’t want those pledges Just the touch, the sweet touch of your delicate hand ‘Cause it makes me feel so real Everything’s hot and it drives me insane And it brings to my senses a seductive appeal And I want you to do it I want you to do it I want you to do it again. From the couch to the bed We float high and light No words need to be said As our spirits unite Lie down and look at me fondly And draw me in your palm Inside of you, where you want me to be Carried away by a delicious charm Hold me strong and never let me go Crazyness ain’t so far away from me For I know the burden of tomorrow And the grief that makes you want to flee So please make me feel so real Make my thing hot and drive me insane ‘Cause it brings to my senses this seductive appeal And I want you to do it I want you to do it I want you to do it again. Oh baby make me feel so real Make my thing hot and drive me insane ‘Cause it brings to my senses this seductive appeal And I want you to do it I want you to do it I want you to do it again When you get closer like this Divin’ your eyes into mine I get a shiver that twists And runs down my spine. When you get closer like this Divin’ your eyes into mine I get a shiver that twists And runs down my spine.

The old branch is hard And clouds drop the rain Gently on the bare bark By watering the plain The cold winter ends And leaves appear The sea rolls on the sands As I love you my dear Love is a wild intimacy Just like the wind when it sings in a tree But If you leave my body I will taste my own misery, I’ll be on my knees, well 'Cause I’ve been waiting for you for so long I was waiting for you each time I was wrong I was waiting for you, for you babe, for you. Once my nights were blind And the moon was missing Memories far behind It was one of those things But my sun turns over Now I’m back in its glimmers I feel that dazzling fire babe All around my shoulders My feelings in poetry Come in a sweet melody But If you give up my mind There’s no bliss I can find, I won’t find my bliss, no! Well I’ve been waiting for you for so long I was waiting for you each time I was wrong I was waiting for you, for you babe, for you. I was waiting for you.

I'm still here Walkin' in shining spaces Into the clear And 'till the end Just one life to live With our souls to blend ‘Cause you know my song You know me better than I do And I should be strong To put my thoughts out of blue So what’s right or wrong? Man’s fears may fade out In the eyes of his son. Without bravery The man who forgets the child he was Betrays his memory Remember honey You're the best part of my world You're the one I see 'Cause you know my song You know me better than I do And I should be strong To put my thoughts out of blue So what’s right or wrong? Man’s fears may fade out In the smile of his son. Let your hand on me Your spirit shines all around Your cries, my army Make my rage fall to the ground For It's not only pretending That I'll be yours 'till the end. Well you know my song You know me better than I do And I should be strong To put my thoughts out of blue So that will never be wrong My fears may fade out In your eyes In your laughes In your pretty smiles My son.
