Track Name: The Spell
You got me in deep/ having trouble sleeping/ you're all I'm thinking
Stupid me/ you're all I'm drinking
I must confess that I am mess yeah
Feeling you in every room/ cause I smell your perfume

Was it wise to talk to ya/ I should've ignored ya/ it's hard to breath every time you're near me/ the push and pull you know what to do /yeah/ wishing you away but you stay


You really got me under your spell/ why do you do the things that you do/ I try to fight you outta my head/ but you remain there instead/ you really got under your spell/ you linger on my head/ I can't get you out of my head


I kind of get the feeling that this could be romance/ you bring me to a place where I can't find no peace of mind
I'm caught up in this yearning you really know how to get to me/ you give me that glance/ and now I'm giving you this chance


In one fell swoop/ you got me in loop/ tell me what your thinking
You be hanging around/ often you’d be trying to play dumb/ pretending not to be/ not so into me/ but when we’re alone/ you’re all mine
By myself I often question/ cause you keep me guessing/ it's like feeling my way through the hallways of your mind/ am I doing this/ am I a fool for this/ why am I so blind

Was it wise to talk to ya/ I should've ignored ya/ it’s hard to breath every time you're near me/ the push and pull you know what to do/yeah/ wishing you away but you stay


You really got me under your spell/ why do you do the things that you do/ I try to fight you outta my head/ but you remain there instead/ you really got under your spell/ you linger on in my head/ I can’t get you outta
of my head


I kind of get the feeling that this could be romance/ you bring me to a place where I can't find no peace of mind
I'm caught up in this yearning you really know how to get to me/ you give me that glance/ and now I'm giving you this chance
Track Name: Crash
So we drive until we crash head on
We steal away
So we drive until we crash head on
We fall in love

See we've been sitting here a long time trying figure out what the hell what were gonna do / I'm pressing on the brake but I don't know how much longer cause I'm ready/ I am ready to go

Cause we're facing each other/ seems that we like one another / the attraction between us/ creates sexy kind of cool/ but the danger among us is the speed of each other and so we crash

So we drive until we crash head on
We steal away
So we drive until we crash head on
We fall in love

The tell tale signs of attraction often leaves me feeling/so confused/ but beaming/ I push upon my ride yes I'm out of control but it's too late/ I want to smash into you

So now we drive towards each other cause we like one another /the attraction between us /creates sexy kind of cool/ but the danger among us is the speed of each other and so we crash

So we drive until we crash head on
We steal away
So we drive until we crash head
We fall in love



See we've been sitting here a long time trying figure out what the hell what were gonna do / I'm pressing on the brake but I don't know how much longer cause I'm ready/ I am ready to go

Cause we're facing each other/ seems that we like one another / the attraction between us/ creates sexy kind of cool/ but the danger among us is the speed of each other and so we crash
Track Name: Come Kiss Me (featuring Hichem Khalfa)
You can make my/ you can make my/ you can my day complete/you’re the sweetness to my candy drop

Make me over make me over/ caress me with those words you say/ how dare you try to take my breath away
See I've been watching after you for so long / you see a man can only thirst for so long/can we make it right tonight


Do you want to go/ let me know/ let me know/ let me know/
Come kiss cause I love ya 2x


Oh my God now / Oh my God now/ you made the choice/ to ride with me/ we got some important things to talk about

You seduce me/ you seduce me/ you make it hard to be
Discrete/ it’s just not cool/ don't make me act a fool
See I've been watching after you for so long / I could really get used to this Ohhh/ You see a man can only thirst for so long/ can we make right tonight

Do you want to go/ let me know/ let me know/ let me know/
Come kiss cause I love ya 2x


Voulez-vous aller/ Faites le moi savoir

Do you want to go/ let me know/ let me know/ let me know
Come Kiss me cause I Love ya
Track Name: In a Box (featuring Nadia Bashalani)
I struggle in a winter/ I fight on and I linger/ I scratch my head to think/ of what it would be/ you watch me as I wither / you shrink me in a figure


You put me in a box/ and then you taped it up/ I screamed out in a rage/ is this the sweet hereafter/ it's not the sweet hereafter
You put me in a box/ and then you taped it up/ I screamed out in a rage/ is this the sweet hereafter/ it's not the sweet hereafter


I can feel it in my bones/ with me they're always cold/ the scent of evergreen overseas me subtly/ frozen in my tracks/ A life I won't get back


You put me in a box/ and then you taped it up/ I screamed out in a rage/ is this the sweet hereafter/ It's not the sweet hereafter
You put me in a box/ and then you taped it up/ I screamed out in a rage/ is this the sweet hereafter/ it's not the sweet hereafter
Track Name: Pissed
So I crashed on my bed/ with head in my hands
I’m so frustrated/I can’t debate it/is it all a game/
I just don’t understand/ why /can’t/ you/ understand
This/was/not/part/of the plan



That’s why I’m just pissed/ you loved me/
And then you left me/what does it suggest
You gave me no choice/you were my only voice


Can't except the state of this relationship/ yet I watch it all get blown up into bits / what did I say

So I crashed on my bed/ with head in my hands
I’m frustrated/ I can’t debate it/ is it all a game/
I just don’t understand/ why/can’t/ you/ understand
This/was/not/part/of the plan



That’s why I’m just pissed/ you loved me/
And then you left me/ what does it suggest
You gave me no choice/ you were my only voice

Vamp

We/ are/ after all/ tears bones and desire

Track Name: I Only Have One Heart (featuring Ali El Farouk
See you're marching on my heart/ taking a bitter part of me/ sinking to a low / weighs me down in the throws/ let me go/ heart set amiss/ now there must be glitch/ spinning on a whim/ this is such a sweet sin/ darling/ my feelings are sparkling


I only have on heart/I only have one heart/ and I'm never ever ever gonna let it fall apart 2x

Sting me with a line/ while I watch you take your time/ I would much far rather know what you taking me for/ although / I'd much rather be blind/ heart set amiss / now there must be a glitch/ spinning on a whim/ this is such a sweet sin/ darling/ my feelings are sparkling



I only have one heart/ I only have one heart/ and I'm never ever ever gonna let it fall apart 2x
Track Name: Get Away
Said I'm guilty/ I took advantage of this love/ now I'm learning all about/ what you need from me/ a classic case of my mistake/ Didn’t try to deviate/ and now we're here in this state

Chorus

Can we just get away/ can we for Heaven sake/ us standing in this chaos/ splits us/ oh so far apart/ Can we just away/ can we for a Heaven sake/ us standing in this chaos/ splits us/ oh/ oh so far apart

Verse

Right now, are we a right off/ you did some things to perpetuate/ not saying that I'm free of any blame/ but you/ kept your love from me/ didn't give much for live for and now we're suspended in this season

Chorus

Can we just get away/ can we for Heaven sake/ us standing in this chaos/ splits us/oh so far apart/Can we just away/ can we for a Heaven sake/ us standing in this chaos splits us oh so far apart/ Can we just get away/ can we for Heaven sake/ us standing in this chaos splits us oh/ oh so far apart/ Can we just get away/ can we for Heaven sake/ us standing in this chaos splits us oh/ oh so far apart

Rap

I'm standing here just knocking/ Calling on your heart non stopping
Suspended in time/ I can't rewind/ the hands of time so I keep on knocking
I'm standing here just knocking/Calling on your heart non stopping
Suspended in time/ I can't rewind the hands of time so I keep on knocking

Chorus


Can we just get away/ can we for Heaven sake/ us standing in this chaos/ splits us/ oh so far apart/ Can we just away/ can we for a Heaven sake/ us standing in this chaos/ splits us/ oh/ oh so far apart Repeat

Tell me it isn't over
There's another chance
Can we find romance
Tell me I’m your man

Verse

Lately you've been harboring/ them feelings that/ come often/ they hurt me/ I'm all for not excusing/ tell me the wrong I'm doing/ can we seek/ peace
It's been a while we been together/ counts for something/ let’s talk about it/ then laugh about it/ this ain't a thing

Track Name: Die with Me
Won't you die with me
Won't you die with me
Won't you die with me


I lived out my life/ to no order of society/ a slave to no one/ want to live out my life in tranquility


Won't you die with me
Won't you die with me
Won't you die with me


I crack at my past/ I did the best I could with what I had/ I'm gross in my attempts/ to let go of my past

Won't you die with me
Won't you die with me
Won't you die with me


They pick at my defense/ while I wither in my stance/ I’m embattled to be real/ let me soak in your fulfillingness

Won't you die with me
Won't you die with me
Won't you die with me


Shoot me to the moon/ let me swoon in my ultimate fate/ see I'm gross in my attempts/ to let go of my past
Track Name: Why (featuring Malika Tirolien)
See we've been the maestro of it all/ Conducting everything thus far/but never ever ever in my life I've ever seen such destruction / Humans we have it all/ we have the chance to turn it all around /but we choose/ to destroy each other



Why - The shade of your skin is not the same one that I'm in

Why - Your religion’s not the same as mine /so let me crucify ya

Why - Your government denies its people of their human rights

Why - The right to clean water ain't a part of your world order now



Days fill my head with a searing pain/ not much room for a smile/ Hell what's the use / if nobody gives a damn about their fellow man.

Fake homeless people/ run the streets with their crooked games/ meanwhile the real ones/ they all suffer in vain/ people they plunder /for the sake of having material things/ oh what joy it brings


Why - The shade of your skin is not the same one that I'm in

Why - Your religion is not the same as mine /so let me crucify ya

Why - Your government denies its people of their basic human rights

Why - The right to clean water ain't a part of your world order now


See we've been the maestro of it all/ conducting everything thus far/but never ever ever in my life I've ever seen such destruction / Humans we have it all/ we have the chance to turn it all around /but we choose/ to destroy each other
