Am I Wrong

Am I wrong for thinking out the box from where I stay?
Am I wrong for saying that I choose another way?

I ain't tryna do what everybody else doing
Just cause everybody doing what they all do
If one thing I know, I'll fall but I'll grow
I'm walking down this road of mine, this road that I call home

So am I wrong
For thinking that we could be something for real?
Now am I wrong
For trying to reach the things that I can't see?

But that's just how I feel,
That's just how I feel
That's just how I feel
Trying to reach the things that I can't see

Am I tripping for having a vision?
My prediction: I'mma be on the top of the world

Walk your walk and don't look back, always do what you decide
Don't let them control your life, that's just how I feel
Fight for yours and don't let go, don't let them compare you, no
Don't worry, you're not alone, that's just how we feel

Am I wrong (am I wrong)
For thinking that we could be something for real?
(oh yeah yeah yeah oh)
Now am I wrong (am I wrong)
For trying to reach the things that I can't see?
(oh yeah yeah yeah yeah)

But that's just how I feel,
That's just how I feel
That's just how I feel
Trying to reach the things that I can't see

If you tell me I'm wrong, wrong
I don't wanna be right, right
If you tell me I'm wrong, wrong
I don't wanna be right
[2x]

Am I wrong
For thinking that we could be something for real?
Now am I wrong
For trying to reach the things that I can't see?

But that's just how I feel,
That's just how I feel
That's just how I feel
Trying to reach the things that I can't see

So am I wrong (am I wrong)
For thinking that we could be something for real?
(oh yeah yeah yeah oh)
Now am I wrong (am I wrong)
For trying to reach the things that I can't see?
(oh yeah yeah yeah yeah)

But that's just how I feel,
That's just how I feel
That's just how I feel
Trying to reach the things that I can't see

Last Time

I see the stars in your eyes
And you know you've lost your disguise
When I hit that with a bang
When I'm in that you're insane, oh
(Work it, work it, work it)

[Pre-Chorus:]
In a cave, on the dock, on the roof, everywhere
Under the clouds when it rains, I don't even care
Nothing can keep me from your loving, no way
Climb a mountain long as we got peace
I can please you on a desert, the bottom of the sea
No matter where we are tonight we're making love

[Chorus:]
Like our last time, like our last time
Like our last time, like our last time, last time

You got what I need, yo, I know it might sound crazy
But I'm drowning in your sea and I don't want nobody to save me
There's something in your eyes making it hard for me to leave
So hard for me to leave, you make it too hard for me to leave
(Work it, ride it, work it)
You make it hard for me to leave
(Work it, ride it, work it)
You make it hard for me to leave
Dance on top, oh baby, just dance on top, on top
Dance, don't stop, oh baby, let's dance all night, all night

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]

[Bridge x4:]
I call it two by two
Good luck, babe, me and you

The way you call it
The way you got me parapampam, parapamapam
The way you call it
The way you got me parapampam, parapamapam

Tonight we're making love

[Chorus]

[Bridge x4]

Miracles

[Verse 1 - Vinz:]
Some gon' tell you one thing, but I'm gon' tell you different
I wasn't born a rapper and I never was a singer
Everything I know I picked up along the road
Breaking hour after hour, man, I never let it go
I never was the best, man, I wasn't even close
I never had girls running everywhere I go
I'm telling you this just to let you know that
I believe it's all within us, reach to where it's at

[Chorus - Vinz:]
It don't have to be miracles, oh
The fire's within our soul
You don't have to be big and tall, oh
Just stand up and hold your own
So we say ah

[Verse 2 - Nico:]
I told my little brother keep on doing what you love
To make it on the field is what he's been dreaming of
So never stop evolving even though you know you're blessed
Make sure that your next day will always be your best
Oh, it's not a magic trick that'll get you there
The only miracle cure is blood, sweat and tears
The road is rocky, but don't ever go astray
You will bring home a trophy if you walk it all the way

[Chorus]

[Outro - Vinz:]
They say you are what you seek for
At the end of the rainbow
See the light at your window
Don't be scared when the rain falls
What is hard can be simple
What is far can be so close
At the end of the rainbow
I see all that I dreamed of

Another Day

[Verse 1:]
I used to pray every night when I was younger
On my knees, folding hands for my mother
And my mother used to say when she was younger
She used to go to bed filled with hunger
The same hunger got her working even harder
Got her travelling to Norway from Ghana
She said "my son, we're blessed, now let's say Our Father"
Ups and downs, that's how life go
What's high if you don't know low?
So I try not to complain
Appreciate life so I keep saying

[Chorus:]
Another day goes by, another day goes by
And I thank God that I'm alive

[Verse 2:]
I think I was about ten years old
Watching the news with my dad
I didn't see nothing but tears and blood
And a bunch of people looking so mad
"That's war", I was told
I said "how? that ain't nothing like the games I have"
I couldn't grasp the sense of an innocent child
Dying by the hands of a grown man
And while some kids raised on cartoons
Young girls making money in dark rooms
We all deserve a decent meal
Why his belly so soft? Why she holding that hard spoon?
And where is my head of state?
If crime pays, talk peace, still engaging in heavy arms trade
In the jungle that we call Sin City
While life rules, survival of the fittest

[Chorus]

[Outro:]
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh yeah, yeah
Why, why, why, why
Yeah
Eh, eh, eh, eh
Thank God that I'm alive

People

[Verse 1:]
If everybody were poor we would all be rich
If everybody up on this Earth were poor we would all be rich
If I had no work I would enjoy life
I would put my family first
I would spend some time with my baby
I would love them more and more
If I was poor I'd cut down trees to build my roof
I'd hunt in the forest
Get my fish from the ocean
Yeah, and we would live like the king and the queen
And we would have a little princess or prince
We would never have felt more free

[Chorus:]
People, people will always be people to me
Yeah, people, people will always be people to me
Yeah, we do wrong, we do right
Yeah, we do wrong and we do right
Yeah, we do wrong and do right
Cause people will always be people to me

[Verse 2:]
Here comes another Friday (Friday)
I haven't had work in weeks
I just wanna make a living (living)
And I promise I wouldn't need the sleep
If I could work everyday, work everyday, work everyday
Oh no, work everyday, work everyday, work everyday
I, I'd even work at night
I'd never take a day off rest of my life
I would send the kids to school, make sure they're alright
And make sure they're better than I, better than

[Chorus]

[Interlude]

Runnin'

[Bridge:]
Ooh, don't fall, run away, run away
Ooh, don't fall, run away, run away
Now ooh, don't fall, run away, run away
Baby, ooh, don't fall, run away, run away
Ooh, don't fall, run away, run away
Ooh, don't fall, run away, run away

[Verse 1:]
Don't want the best of you, but I want the pearl
Open your treasure and come into my world
Say baby
You knockin', you knockin', you knockin', your hands are sore
Baby
You tryin', you tryin', you tryin' the hardest gloves
Baby
You fallin', you fallin', you're down and it's too deep, oh yeah

[Pre-Chorus:]
It ain't your fault, my lady, time is not for us
Don't you go leavin', your presence is way too good
At least I'm honest about it all
Don't you know? Girl, you know, I'm...

[Chorus x2:]
Too little to love
But I'm in love with you loving me
Keep runnin', runnin' from me
Keep runnin', runnin' from me

[Verse 2:]
I say I hate to break it down so cold
Ooh shit, so cold
But I don't wanna give you false hopes
Hopes, false hopes
Even your friends will say I'm so wrong
So wrong, so wrong
Though I know in my heart you got it
I ain't giving you nutten but lovin'

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]

[Verse 3:]
I know it's not easy, easy
Yeah, not easy, yeah
Said I know it's not easy, easy
Yeah, not easy, yeah
Said I know it's not easy, easy
At least you know where know we stand
Telling the truth like a gentleman
Telling the truth, I'm a gentleman

[Bridge]

[Verse 4:]
I ain't ready to retire, I ain't ready to tie down
Even though you take me higher, whoa, take me high above the ground
I love the way you, way you, way you tell me with love
Oh but either way, I don't wanna tie down

[Chorus]

Imagine

[Vinz:]
I see your tears in the night, lay it all on me
You built a wall inside, just let it fall from me
I feel your pain and lonely
Don't be afraid to show me
Let it rain upon me
I'll be here for you

[Nico:]
I met an old man once and he said to me
"The only thing that matters is what you believe"
If you don't stand for something you'll fall for anything
In case you're wondering I'll be here for you

[Vinz:]
Aye, imagine - aye, imagine
Ooh oh, imagine
Could you ever imagine?
Don't give up, don't give in
Gotta fight through all of these fins
Say yeah imagine
Could you ever imagine?

[Vinz:]
Every melody can turn into a symphony instantly
I know that you were meant for me
Even though it was so hard to see
I knew that we could be
You did the same for me
Now I'll be here for you

[Vinz:]
Aye, imagine - aye, imagine
Ooh oh, imagine
Could you ever imagine?
Don't give up, don't give in
Keep on until the end
Say yeah imagine
Could you ever imagine?

[Nico:]
I'm just a humble, little sail with too much to prove
But my boat's so small and the ocean so huge
And I don't wanna go half on a dream
So I need you to be a part of my team
I could never pretend or act like it's just me
Without you where would I be?
Imagine

[Vinz:]
Aye, imagine - aye, imagine
Ooh oh, imagine
Could you ever imagine?
What you've done, now you're here
And you fought through all of your fins
Say yeah imagine
Could you ever imagine?

In Your Arms

I feel like Superman
They gonna remember me
I think I know I can
Who says it's hard to reach
Who's gonna stop me on the road to success
I don't know

They tried to break me down
But I'm still on my feet
This city's full of life
So why is it hard to breathe
Oh why did God create this world so unfair
I don't know

Sometimes I feel like I can't run, I can't crawl
And sometimes I feel like I ain't nothing at all
Life is a journey where you stumble and fall
But I'm okay

When I lie down in your arms
Oh oh oh oh oh [x3]
When I lie down in your arms
Oh oh oh oh oh [x3]
When I lie down in your arms

I feel like moving back
Sometimes it's hard to dream
The life I chose is past
It's moving without me
Who doesn't want a machine so they can go back in time
I don't know

My time went by too fast
There's no one left but me
I've got a nine to five
And it gets the best of me
This is the life I'm gonna live to the end
But I'm okay

When I lie down in your arms
Oh oh oh oh oh [x3]
When I lie down in your arms
Oh oh oh oh oh [x3]
When I lie down in your arms

Sometimes I feel like I can't run, I can't crawl
And sometimes I feel like I ain't nothing at all
Life is a journey where you stumble and fall
But I'm okay

When I lie down in your arms
Oh oh oh oh oh [x3]
When I lie down in your arms
Oh oh oh oh oh [x3]
When I lie down in your arms
Oh oh oh oh oh [x3]
When I lie down in your arms
Oh oh oh oh oh [x3]
When I lie down in your arms

When The Day Comes

I'm ready for war
Come into town and I'll hide you on the rise
In the city of gold
Fighting the tower with my feelings aside
When it's 2 in the night
The fire's in my heart is gon' keep me alive
And I'm ready for war

The voice in my head
It's telling me that I should stay in my bed
Cause it's 2 in the night
Why can't I sleep when it's 2 in the night
Cause the fire in my soul, hey
The fire in the soul got me ready to fight
And I'm ready for war

Climbed the streets
And I found my way over
You know I've been so lost in translation
Like I'm fighting for truce in Babylon
Tryna find my peace in this zone of war

Even when the day comes
Even when the day comes
Even when the day comes
Even when the day comes
Even when the day comes
Even when the day comes
Even when the day comes
I'll be ready when the day comes

I'm ready for war
I'm ready for action, now watch me kick in the door
But what if the day comes when we go from sun to monsoon
Who can I run to, run to, run to
Will you be loyal, will you be true when I need you
Say

Climbed the streets
And I found my way over
You know I've been so lost in translation
Like I'm fighting for truce in Babylon
Tryna find my peace in this zone of war

Even when the day comes
Even when the day comes
Even when the day comes
Even when the day comes
Even when the day comes
Even when the day comes
Even when the day comes
I'll be ready when the day comes

Even when the sky comes falling down
I'll be ready when the sky comes falling down

Today
I will march for me
Today
You will march for you
We raise our arms and hope for better ways
We fight a million battles every day
I don't wanna see us falling
So we just gotta keep on running
Even when the day comes calling
I'm ready to march

Even when the day comes
Even when the day comes
Even when the day comes
Even when the day comes
Even when the day comes
Even when the day comes
Even when the day comes
I'll be ready when the day comes

Imaa Imaa

She said where I'm at ain't where I be

She said I'd be the one, I got hopes and dreams
For me, my son, my only king

Imaa Imaa yeah

You can plant a seed, you can give a life
You can help me grow or you can turn your eyes

Through the fire, through the rain
Your protector I remain, oh
And I knew that one day I'd meet someone like you to save me
Yeah, I knew that one day I'd meet someone like you to share with
And I know that I'm okay as long as I got you to love me
Hey now, hey ma, I hope I hold your

I don't know now, I've been all over, don't worry

[Chorus]
