Track Name: Fire on the Horizon
There’s a little old town and it’s tucked away on an island on the sea
So far away from everything, where time it don’t mean a thing
And time moves slow and certainly we got no place to be
Where’s there’s love there is life, there is a hope there a dream
This is the place for you and me

We can go, we can stay
We can hide, we can run away
We can feel and swim in the ocean
We’ve fallen, life keeps calling

I found love in the strangest places, where all is meant be
Jamming to the sounds of your favorite song, I said good love is all we need
And when you get down, turn it up loud, and soon we’ll feel at peace
When the world does you wrong, you listen to that song, like the birds listen to the trees

{Chorus}
There’s a fire on the horizon
There’s a fire, so let it burn
We can get higher over the mountain
We’ve fallen, life keeps calling

In this jungle, we are all just animals
We’re criminals, but we’re innocent always
In this jungle, we are all just animals
We‘re criminals, but we’re innocent always

So many miles I’ve walked
So many rivers I’ve crossed
So many battles I’ve lost,
Make me who I am today
And when tomorrow it comes,
There’ll be a brand new sun
This song is not over,
It’s just begun

{Chorus}
There’s a fire on the horizon
There’s a fire, so let it burn
We can get higher over the mountain
We’ve fallen, life keeps calling
Track Name: In This Love
I’ve flown too close to the sun this time
I keep flying and I’m gonna get burned
I walk by the edge of the ocean and I
look to the sky and then I watch this world turn

{Chorus}
in this love, in this love
in this love, in this love

I feel the weight of the world on my shoulders
our love it always stay the same
I don’t believe all the things that they told us
it’s love that makes us feel this way

in this love, in this love
in this love, in this love

I’m not ready to go
this world is not ready for me
the clock keeps spinning so slow
I guess we’ll have to wait and see

in this love, in this love
in this love, in this love

looking up, looking up, looking up now
looking up as the sun it goes down
looking up, things are looking up now

I’ve flown too close to the sun this time
I keep flying and I’m gonna get burned
I walk by the edge of the ocean and I
look to the sky and then I watch this world turn

in this love, in this love
in this love, in this love
in this love, in this love
in this love, in this love
Track Name: Sound of the Sea
This boats sinking down to the ocean floor
I’m still drinking, drinking from the night before
I’m wishing, wishing right now I was fishing
I’m thinking, I’m thinking but my mind’s not listening
I never felt so far away
I never lived before day
It’s been awhile since I’ve seen your face
It’s been awhile, time to turn the page

[Chorus]
I wanna know, I want to know
I want to feel the way I did
I want to go, I want to go
back, back to the way it was

I got a good feeling, and this feeling won’t go away
I’m not leaving, I’m waiting for a brighter day
And I believe it, that good things are coming our way
So keep dreaming, I’m feeling like I’m dreaming always
It never felt this strange to me
My guitar is all all I need
It’s been awhile since I’ve been down this road
And it’s been awhile, good things come and go

If the sun is getting closer
Then why does it feel cold?
And in the eyes of the world I’m older
I can’t take it much longer

[Chorus]
I wanna know, I want to know
I want to feel the way I did
I want to go, I want to go
back, back to the way it was

Just a little bit longer, the music making us stronger
In the eyes of the world
Track Name: Choice is Yours (feat. Slightly Stoopid)
your minds long gone, you're run down, you're all out of smoke
light me up a cigarette before I go
your whole world fits inside of the palm of your hands
I try to tell em man, but they just don't understand

[Chorus]
the choice is yours when you’re ready, the choice is yours
the choice is yours, taking it easy,
the choice is yours, the choice is yours

your arms wide open the walls are caving in
don't bury your secrets deep within your skin
when you focus on the good things, all things under the sun
you free yourself from negativity and the good shall come

[Chorus]
the choice is yours when you’re ready, the choice is yours
the choice is yours, taking it easy,
the choice is yours, the choice is yours

the choice is yours and the choice and mine
you can't please everybody all of the time
get up and pray things will be just fine
but might not know till the end of the line
happiness is only a state of mind
open your eyes and in time you will find
open your heart and let your love light shine
and it don't cost a penny nickel or dime
give a little love and get a little, ain't the way that it goes,
what goes around it comes around so everyone knows,
what you give is what you get so take a look cause it shows
pickin up your brother any time he feelin low,
smokin up a chalice or a spliff of pacalo
rollin up the best with nothin less than hydro
when I'm smokin on my spliff don't burn it fast I like it slow
moving up in a style and in a fashion I'm supposed
open a another door any time another door is closed
move into the light in from the dark now exposed,
when I'm reachin into sky I spread it out to let it grow
never do a thing because somebody's sayin so
Track Name: Mind Block (feat. Eric Rachmany of Rebelution)
open up your windows, open up your eyes
can you tell which way the wind blows?
read between the lines
I know you're not perfect and no no, not am I
music playing on your stereo to ease your mind
I’ve been working, I’ve working all long
trying to find the melody I’m singing in this song
words come and then again they're gone
feels like I got a mind block

open up your windows, open up your eyes
can you tell which way the wind blows?
read between the lines
the mind stop moving, it works just fine
reggae music on the radio
keeping the vibes alive

open up your mind find that spark inside
time to focus, realize good things take their time
suddenly a glimmer of a light shines bright
possessing me with all of which I need to speak my mind, whoa
ask me will I stop? no way
does your energy just drop? no not today
ask me will I stop? we keep it rocking always
let it all soak in

I’ve been working, I’ve been working all night long
trying to find a spark or find out what i’m doing wrong
no problem I got time to focus on
I got some passion and more patience than I thought
will I stop? no way
does your energy just drop? no not today
ask me, will I stop? we keep it rocking always
let it all soak in

I’ve found a simple solution
I’m bound for places in choosing
quiet down, got to get up keep moving
let it all soak in

there’s a world I don’t know
trying to find a place that I can go
there’s a world I don’t know
trying to find a space that I control
ask me will I stop? no way
does your energy just drop? no not today
ask me will I stop? we keep it rocking always
let it all soak in
ask me will I stop?
ask me will I stop?
Track Name: Sentenced
and as I got of the train way down in New Orleans
I grabbed my hat, I put on my coat
reached for my spliff, yeah
I had myself a little smoke, yeah

{Chorus}
I was sentenced, living in detention
sentenced, living in detention

and now I’m locked up in jail
I spend my days in a cold dark prison cell
I rest alone, I watch myself grow old
and I don’t deserve this, I just want to go home

{Chorus}

I should have known when I shot the man dead
there would be a bounty, a bounty for my dead, yeah
well I don’t care that that young mans dead
I’m just missing one thing, a good spliff to my head

I’ve been talking in my sleep
I’ve been waking in my dreams
I’ve been living in the past
my good old faith is dead

{Chorus} 2x
Track Name: Out the Door
give me one good reason to love you
give me one good reason to tell you
I’m in love no more
I’m walking out that door.
give me one good reason to love you
give me one good reason to tell you
I’m in love no more
I’m walking out that door

I could have saw it coming from far and away
now you’ve got me running, running away
walk out the door, cause I don’t need your love
I don’t mind the feeling of sleeping alone
I’m better off being, being on my own
walk out the door, cause I don’t need your love

{Chorus}

got a pistol in my pocket, and a bottle of booze
the time has come, fuck it got nothing to lose
walk out the door, cause I don’t need your love
it’s the same damn feeling, I’ve been here too long
the truth is so revealing, I knew it all along
walk out the door, cause I don’t need your love

{Chorus}
Track Name: Weary Eyes
It feels like yesterday, the day you up and went away
won’t let you control my fate, everything is meant to be
good things are on their way
I can only wait and see
never let your fate control you

and it feels good
everything is going the way it should
sometimes we all feel misunderstood
and that's ok but because I knew we could
never could get back together
and a wise man knows, nothing lasts forever
let the truth unfold, we’re better off together
and the cold wind blows, it’s just the way life goes

I don’t mind the rain sometimes
let the sky cry away
and wipe your dreary eyes
and put the cards on the table
up into the hills we go
I wanna fly high away
never let your fate control you

{Chorus}
and it feels good
everything is going the way it should
sometimes we all feel misunderstood
and that's ok but because i knew we could
never could get back together
and a wise man knows, nothing lasts forever
let the truth unfold, we’re better off together
and the cold wind blows, it’s just the way life goes

smoke arose from the fire and the water put out that flame
I’m so damn high but still I feel no shame
I’m a rock, I’m an island and I don’t feel nothing
and when one door closes, another is open
Track Name: Shadow
oh there she goes, walking the same old country road
oh there she goes, I said you think but you don’t know

this may be the best day of your life
said those are the words and the words that I live by
and everybody’s talking, but they got nothing to say
there's a time, there's reason and purpose and a place
I don’t know how to say this, but girl you got me thinking
your down upon your knees, like quicksand your sinking
spilling your heart, you cannot fill up
I said i thought this was the last time, you said you’d had enough

{Chorus}
oh there she goes, walking the same old country road
oh there she goes, I said you think but you don’t know

lords knows I got everything I need
I got soul, I got rhythm, got a dog I got my guitar
take a deep breath, and feel the air you're breathing,
it gives life it’s rhythm and it comes from the trees
and I can’t stop the time, lords knows you can’t either
time it is your friend, time it is the healer
forward always, keep the wheels in motion
maybe that’s why I like living by the ocean

{Chorus}

when you got nothing you got nothing to lose
when you got something, there’s something to choose
one cup empty and the other is full
never let nobody get the best of you
lord you must forgive me if I go insane
life it keeps you guessing and some people change
our love, it never dies it remains the same
I wish I could say it but I can’t say
Track Name: One of Those Days
I saw you standing there from across the room
your eyes they locked with mine, I wanted to talk to you
I saw you smile at me, but I had to look away
I’d sing a song for you if I could find the words to say
I wish that I could find my loving lady,
I love you girl but this world is so damn crazy
I’d walk over over mountain tops and sail the ocean too
there ain’t nothing girl, nothing I won’t do for you

foundation, good vibration
good things come, come from inspiration
foundation, good vibration
good things come, come from inspiration
It’s just one of those days
It’s just one of those days

life is an open road, everything just stop and go
give me the green light, I just feel like
we running out of time but i’m not done chasing
things fall in place when you stop racing
and here I stand alone, I’m just kicking stones
I got nowhere to go, I’m just breathing
try to see there good things coming
I know there’s love among us
I love the earth and sun and
the moon, the stars above us

when it’s time to go, when it’s all said and done
I’m not the only one who had a lot of fun
when I look around I see my reflection
of me once upon a time, a time when I was young
there is this world out there, sometimes I just don’t care
love is in the air, can you feel it?
lets go for a ride, lets spread the good vibes
lets all get together, everything will be alright

one of those days, it’s just one of those days
one of those days, it’s just one of those days
one of those days, it’s just one of those days
one of those days, it’s just one of those days
Track Name: All My Love
it’s been a long time coming yes, but now I’ve met the one
you are the only girl, and you are the only one I love
keep holding me, I’ll never let you go
we’ll travel around this world and take it nice and slow
you are my obligation, my only inspiration
I will be there for you in any given situation
when your world gets dark and when we are apart
i’ll be there to send you all my love

you are my love, my love, my love
all of my love, my love, my love

you spend your whole life searching but now you search no more
listen to your heart because your heart you can’t ignore
please you must believe me, I wanted to tell you this
I finally found a purpose and a reason to exist
I pick you up when you stumble and now even when you fall
I lift you upon your feet to help you to keep you standing tall
one life to live lord it's never felt so right
i’ll be there to spend with you my life

you are my love, my love, my love
all of my love, my love, my love

one thing is for certain I got no doubt about you
time it come and go but this love is here to stay
somewhere in this world, there’s someone out there who’s for you
and when love come around, don’t let it slip away my love

all of my love, all my love, all my love
all of my love, all my love, all my love
all of my love, all my love, all my love
all of my love, all my love, all my love
Track Name: Sunshine and Rain
life, it’s a mixture of sunshine and rain
laughter, pleasure, teardrops and pain
all days can be bright, but it’s certainly true
there will never be a cloud that the sunshine couldn’t shine through
so keep on smiling, whatever betide you
secure the knowledge that this world is beside you
and you’ll find when you smile, your day will be brighter
and all of your burdens will seem so much lighter
for each time you smile, you will find it is true
somebody, somewhere will smile back at you
there’s nothing on this earth that can make life more worthwhile
than the sunshine and the warmth of a beautiful smile
so keep on smiling, keep smiling
keep on smiling, keep smiling
Track Name: Smiles on Faces (feat. KBong)
what puts a smile on your face?
tell me the truth
what really makes you happy?
what makes you move?

never giving up when life gets too hard
right around the corner is a brand new start
feels like we’re riding on a roller coaster
we getting so far, we not getting closer
life is all about the up and down
take your medicine, stop falling around
never take yourself too seriously
laugh with the world, let live and be free
why don’t more people try to take life slow?
why is everyday so impossible?
when I speak my mind I tell no lies
once upon a time I laughed so hard I cried
doesn’t really matter at the end of the day
as long as you live your life and you feel happy
what don’t hold you down will make you strong
come on everybody, won’t you sing this song.

{Chorus}
smiles on faces, we’re putting smiles on faces
smiles on faces, we’re putting smiles on faces

it’s a long road and it’s taken me home
been a long day, still got a ways to go
I don’t feel like we’re getting older,
I feel so alive but we’re that much closer
keep pushing on when the times get tough
and even if the storm comes, the waves get rough
our love is greater than the deep blue sea
what’s going around, it’s coming around, it’s following me
ain’t it funny how things fall in place sometimes
your shadow follows you when the sun don’t shine
some people spend their whole life living in their head
and I say listen to your heart instead
keep searching for a lifetime waiting for a sign
something gives me hope that we’ll be alright
if all the girls in the world we’re living across the sea
what a wonderful swimmer, yes you know that I would be

In a world gone crazy, you’re smile has saved me
when everything changes, I know we’re gonna make it

{Chorus} 2x
smiles on faces, we’re putting smiles on faces
smiles on faces, we’re putting smiles on faces
