(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

The Man

[Hook:]
Girl you can tell everybody
Yeah you can tell everybody
Go ahead and tell everybody
I'm the man I'm the man I'm the man
Yes I am yes I am yes I am
I'm the man I'm the man I'm the man

[Verse 1:]
I believe every lie that I ever told
Paid for every heart that I ever stole
I paid my cause and I didn't fold
Well it ain't that hard when you got soul (this is my world)
Somewhere I heard that life is a test
I been though the worst but still I give my best
God made my mold different from the rest
Then he broke that mold so I know I'm blessed (this is my world)

[Bridge:]
Stand up now and face the sun
Won't hide my tail or turn and run
It's time to do what must be done
Be a king when kingdom comes

Girl you can tell everybody
Yeah you can tell everybody
Go ahead and tell everybody
I'm the man I'm the man I'm the man

[Hook]

[Verse 2:]
I got all the answers to your questions
I'll be the teacher you could be the lesson
I'll be the preacher you be the confession
I'll be the quick relief to all your stressing (this is my world)
It's a thin line between love and hate
Is you really real or is you really fake
I'm a solider standing on my feet
No surrender and I won't retreat (this is my world)

[Bridge]

[Hook]

I'm the man
Go ahead and tell everybody what I'm saying y'all
I'm the man
Go ahead and tell everybody what I'm saying y'all

[Hook x4]

Wake Me Up (Acoustic)

Feeling my way through the darkness
Guided by a beating heart
I can't tell where the journey will end
But I know where to start

They tell me I'm too young to understand
They say I'm caught up in a dream
Well life will pass me by if I don't open up my eyes
Well that's fine by me

[2x]
So wake me up when it's all over
When I'm wiser and I'm older
All this time I was finding myself
And I didn't know I was lost

I tried carrying the weight of the world
But I only have two hands
Hope I get the chance to travel the world
But I don't have any plans

Wish that I could stay forever this young
Not afraid to close my eyes
Life's a game made for everyone
And love is the prize

[2x]
So wake me up when it's all over
When I'm wiser and I'm older
All this time I was finding myself
And I didn't know I was lost

Didn't know I was lost
I didn't know I was lost
I didn't know I was lost
I didn't know (didn't know, didn't know)

Love Is The Answer

[Verse 1:]
Broken hearts everywhere
From stepping on love we don't care
Somebody tell me what we gonna do
Even though it's plenty to share
People hungry in the streets life just ain't fair
But you never think about it until it's you

[Pre-Chorus:]
Now I'm gonna say how I feel
And what I wanna say islove is the only thing that's real
Now I'm gonna tell you what to do
Just believe that love is the only thing we have that's true

[Chorus:]
Love is the answer
Love is the answer

Love is the answer to the questions in your mind
If you looking it's the answer that you'll find

It's the only thing that everybody needs
It's the only thing that makes us truly free

[Verse 2:]
Friends nowhere to be found
To help you when you are down
But you know that you're the one to blame
We know what's wrong from what's right
Nobody wins in a fightbut still we play the game

[Chorus:]
Love is the answer
Love is the answer

Love is the answer to the questions in your mind
If you looking it's the answer that you'll find

It's the only thing that everybody needs
It's the only thing that makes us truly free

[Bridge:]
Just look around the whole wide world
So many beautiful things to see
Take my hand and come along spread some love with me

Can You Do This

[Verse 1:]
Grab your shotgun
Cock it back
Shoot the sun until the sky is black
Now I don't know if the sun got rhythm
But he gone dance when that music hit'm
Bang, bang, bang darkness falls
In the nighttime I'm camouflage

[Pre-Chorus:]
Now I-I-I-I, don't know who you are
But girl I wanna know if you can move like this
And I-I-I-I, don't know if you gonna tell me
But I wanna know what your name is
And you-you-you-you
Gonna make me fall in love with you
If you keep on shaking your hips

[Chorus:]
Now can you do this
(Yeah, I can do that)
Can you do this
(Yeah, I can do that)
Can you do this
(Yeah, I can do that)
Can you do this
(Yeah, I can do that)
I know you think that you can move
But can you groove the way I groove

[Verse 2:]
Grab your slingshot
Find a stone
Shoot the moon until the night is gone
I sure hope that moon got rhythm
Cuz he gone rock and when my stone hit'm
Boom, boom, boom let me shine
He should know that the day is mine

[Chorus:]
Now can you do this
(Yeah, I can do that)
Can you do this
(Yeah, I can do that)
Can you do this
(Yeah, I can do that)
Can you do this
(Yeah, I can do that)
I know you think that you can move
But can you groove the way I groove

[Break:]
Do you wanna dance
Cuz I wanna dance with you
Do you wanna dance
Come along and dance with me

[Bridge:]
Can you do this
(Can you do this baby)
Can you do this
(Can yo move like I do)
Can you do this
(Can you shake it shake it mama)
Can you do this
(Can you break it on down)

[Chorus:]
Now can you do this
(Yeah, I can do that)
Can you do this
(Yeah, I can do that)
Can you do this
(Yeah, I can do that)
Can you do this
(Yeah, I can do that)
I know you think that you can move
But can you groove the way I groove

Ticking Bomb

[Chorus:]
The whole world's sitting on a ticking bomb
The whole world's sitting on a ticking bomb
So keep your calm and carry on
The whole world's sitting on a ticking bomb

[Verse 1:]
The sun may never rise again
The question ain't if but when
The see will boil and the sky will fall
The sun may never rise again

The silent war has begun
We're staring down a loaded gun
No refuge found on solid ground
This human race can't be won

[Chorus:]
The whole world's sitting on a ticking bomb
The whole world's sitting on a ticking bomb
So keep your calm and carry on
The whole world's sitting on a ticking bomb

And it's about to explode

(The whole world) [x4]

[Verse 2:]
They're reaching in my pockets again
The ice we're standing on is thin
Making plans with greedy hands
They're reaching in my pockets again

The future is a dying art
Laying in a ditch in the dark
I need you here but all I hear (is)
The beating of a broken heart

[Pre-Chorus:]
Don't wait to say goodbye
You're running out of time
Whatever you believe
It's easy to see

[Chorus:]
The whole world's sitting on a ticking bomb
The whole world's sitting on a ticking bomb
So keep your calm and carry on
The whole world's sitting on a ticking bomb

And it's about to explode [x2]
(The whole world)
The whole world's sitting on a ticking bomb
And it don't care what side you're on
The whole world's sitting on a ticking bomb
So keep your calm and carry on
The whole world's sitting on a ticking bomb
