ABRACADABRA

Animal

I feel it burning, deep in my soul
I know it’s time for me to go
And in this journey, I take it slow
Assess my prey before I start to hone
My blade, this ain’t no phase
No longer grazing in this field I once laid
I wanna taste, let go of haste
Blood in the water oh I will not hesitate.

Because, well I’m an animal
I want my belly full
I will not go to my grave
With this inside of me.
Well I’m an animal
And I can feel the pull
It’s time to open my cage
And see who I can be.

Escape now create my own state
I’m the one with the power dictate my own fate
Persist
To exist
Now make a list
Of the egos in my life I must dismiss
Battle in the mind
To know that I’m divine
That I’m the mastermind
In this day-to-day grind.
Well I’m an animal
I want my belly full
I will not go to my grave
With this inside of me.

Well I’m an animal
And I can feel the pull
It’s time to open my cage
And see who I can be.

So let me hear you scream
Whoa oa, whoa oa
Well I’m an animal, well I’m an animal.
Whoa oa, whoa oa
Well I’m an animal, well I’m an animal.

I know who it is I be
Chasing my destiny
It’s time for me to seize
Release me I’m a beast
I know who it is we be
Let’s change this world we see
Leaving these crumbs and seeds
It’s time to bare our teeth.

Well I’m a lion, and you’re a lion
So lemme hear you roar
Well I’m a lion, and you’re a lion
And it is time for you and me to ROAR.

Well I’m an animal
I want my belly full
I will not go to my grave
With this inside of me.
Well I’m an animal
And I can feel the pull
It’s time to open my cage
And see who I can be.

Well I’m an animal
I want my belly full
I will not go to my grave
With this inside of me.
Well I’m an animal
And I can feel the pull
It’s time to open my cage
And see who I can be.

Dreamer

You and me are looking for something
To get away from the pain in our hearts
The circling of our past is moving much too fast.
When I met you we were both needing loving
So easily I let down my guard
Let’s put the past away and give this love a chance.
Well, I’m a dreamer, a believer in love I know it’s true
I know that I can work it out and give my love to you
Ah well I might fall down but I’ll get up if you would love me too
Let’s dream of a life together and make it all come true.
I wanna run around the world just a boy and girl
Living the good life
I wanna hold your hand and be your man
I wanna do this love right
I wanna jam for fans and watch you dance
Under the moonlight
I wanna put our souls together
And fight the good fight.
For the first time I’m in love with nothing left to prove
And I hope that I can help you feel the same way too
I’ll pick you up when you are down
You gave me love when I was lost and now I’m found.
I’m a dreamer, a believer in love I know it’s true
I know that I can work it out and give my love to you
Ah well I might fall down but I’ll get up if you would love me too
Let’s dream of a life together and make it all come true.
I’m just a boy, you’re just a girl
We’re just another set of lovers running through this world
I’m giving you my hand, you’re giving me your love
Together I know no matter what we can rise above.

And I’m just a boy, you’re just a girl

We’re just another set of lovers running through this world
I’m giving you my hand you’re giving me your love
And I know now no matter what we can rise above

I’m a dreamer, a believer in love I know it’s true
I know that I can work it out and give my love to you
Ah well I might fall down but I’ll get up if you would love me too
Let’s dream of a life together and make it all come true.
I’m a dreamer, a believer in love I know it’s true
I know that I can work it out and give my love to you
Ah well I might fall down but I’ll get up if you would love me too
Let’s dream of a life together and make it all come true.
I’m a dreamer
I’m a dreamer in love.

Evolve

Well as I write this rhyme
I begin to the see the sign
This is a story to myself
A message to remind
Me of who I’m meant to be
I’m planted like a little seed
And growing like an oak tree
Where the roots are running deep.
I hear my destiny a roaring to get free
I am a creature of creation
And it’s who I’m meant to be
The vision I be seeing will become reality
If I can keep up my momentum
And believing in my dream.
Well every morning I be waking
Up to battle doubt
I try to be the best that I can be
I wake up, stand up, I’m gonna jump up and down
I sing myself this tune
Because I know it’ll set me free
Well, come on.
The time has come
No longer judge
Spread the love to one another.
Be as one
Have some fun
Support your sisters and your brothers.
Well in this spin
Look within
Ask yourself what can be given
Time, energy, your money
The more you give the more you living.

Well I know we go through things that can be frustrating

If you really pay attention you can see ‘em demonstrating
How to grow up
How to EVOLVE
How to take the past mistakes
Apply to present problems and solve.
With this I’ve been changing my gaze
And letting in rays
Taking a hard look at me and swaying my ways
No longer wanna live my life a fighting the haze
I say goodbye to my addictions and vibrations are raised.
Well every morning I be giving thanks to my life
And every day I know it is that I gotta strive
I wanna be the change that I be seeing in the world
I wanna sing this tune to every boy and every girl
Well, come on.
The time has come
No longer judge
Spread the love to one another.
Be as one
Have some fun
Support your sisters and your brothers.
Well in this spin
Look within
Ask yourself what can be given
Time, energy, your money
The more you give the more you living.
Well the time has come
I wanna be, I wanna be, I wanna be someone
Who makes a difference
And well the time is now
You know that each and every one of us is significant.

The time has come
No longer judge

Spread the love to one another.
Be as one
Have some fun
Support your sisters and your brothers.
Well in this spin
Look within
Ask yourself what can be given
Time, energy, your money
The more you give the more you living.

Grateful

There came a time in my life
When I knew I had to try
And open up my eyes.
It seemed so simple to me
Why such a struggle to be
My own insecurities
Are creeping up on me.
No more time in today
The sun is fading away
And I’m left feeling cray cray.
I need to make a change
It’s time to rearrange
Late night in bed I lay
Why does it seem so strange to
Concentrate
On what’s great
And sustain this feeling
Give it meaning, it is healing
With one simple question.
What am I grateful for
I think about the little things
What am I grateful for
So many simple things

Woke up with a stretch and a yawn
So tired and I know I have to mow this lawn
I gotta call my mom I gotta go to the studio
A couple hours out and then make this song
Could be worse if I was fighting a war
Dying from a disease with no real cure
Homeless on the streets so cold and poor
And I’m here complaining about all these chores
What am I so grateful for
I gotta write it down so that it makes some sense
About having a job, and paying some rent
Food on the table, respect for all my ladies and gents
Speaking in languages takin it in
Surfin’ waves in the sunshine and catchin’ a tan
Clean clothes on my back and a couple of raps
My family and kit kats, how about that.
What am I grateful for
I think about the little things
What am I grateful for
So many simple things.
What am I grateful for
I think about the little things
What am I grateful for
So many simple things.
What am I so grateful for
What am I so grateful for
What am I so grateful for
What am I so grateful for
What am I so grateful for
What am I so grateful for
What am I so grateful for
What am I so grateful for.
What am I grateful for
I think about the little things
What am I grateful for
So many simple things.

What am I grateful for
I think about the little things

What am I grateful for
So many simple things.
What am I grateful for
I think about those little things
What am I grateful for
It’s all about those simple things.

Reunite

I can hear you coming
Are you a friend of mine
I’d like to welcome you to my town right now
You’re here to teach me something about this simple life
Together we’re gonna turn the world upside down.
Tonight, all right, let’s put the pain away
Inside, decide who’s gonna play the game
Of life, this time, take aim and light your flame
There’s something great living inside of our souls.
This is our time to shine
It’s time to reunite
I know that we will find
We’re gonna find a way to carry on.
You been livin’ in me for years
You be giving me the strength to fight my fears
You’re helping me to break through the smoke and mirrors
And now you’re humbling me to shed my tears.
At times my mind is living in regret
Why is this story livin’ in my head
I can’t take back what’s done and said
So put it to the past and step ahead.
Well, tonight, all right, let’s put the pain away

These pages are leaving traces
These traces are guiding my mazes
And they’re the mazes of my life.
You burning like dynamite

You’re living deep inside
With you right by my side,
I’m ready for this fight.

Abracadabra

I’m feeling good inside
I really love my life
I’m putting out these good vibes every single day.
I’m like a shining ray
I love to celebrate
Even on a rainy day I wear sunshine upon my face.
Hello, my friend from another
Let go, and search for the good
I know, we got each other
It’s so remarkably true
Whenever
I feel low
I look inside and grow
My words they help me know
Just who I am.
With these words I create
Abracadabra
Laugh, are you ready to play
Lalalalaa
Let’s make today a great day
With the words that we say.
I am a musician
I make my music fun
I blast it on my run and when I need good energy.
I give it everything
It’s in these words I sing
I fill’em up with love, I paint these words and set them free.

Feelin It

Sometimes I’m sitting in the back of the room
I know exactly what it is I wanna do
I wanna get up, dance, romance
Get the ants out of my pants
It’s time for me to make a move
It’s time for me to take a chance.
1 2 3 4–Get my body on the floor
5 6 7 8– It’s time to celebrate.
Feelin’ it, I’m feelin’ it.
Feelin’ it, I’m feelin’ it.
1-4-2– Say yes and make my move
It’s time to take the steps that gonna help me find my groove
Wanna be the seed, believe
There is no they, just you and me
Mix my authenticity
With what I think the world might need.
1 2 3 4– Get my body on the floor
5 6 7 8–It’s time time to celebrate.
Feelin’ it, I’m feelin’ it.
Feelin’ it, I’m feelin’ it.
Wake up from my dream,
The scene I see is a dream to me
Step out, about, to live another day
Gonna give my all, I can’t wait to play
Funny how conditions
They will heighten ambition
Within my soul is living a vision
I am gonna push right through.
Feelin’ it, I’m feelin’ it.
Feelin’ it, I’m feelin’ it.

Fly Away

First time we connected
Sparked a little light
When again we intersected
I saw it as a sign.
Based on my intentions
And the passions in my life
I’m ready for love’s expression
And what it is we’re gonna find.
Lovin’ you be givin me is so healthy
It makes me wanna stay
Talking to each other so naturally
There’s nothin’ that we can’t say.
Fly away with me
Fly away with me
Fly ay ay ay ay away
Fly ay ay ay ay away
It’s gonna be all right, fly away.
Day by day I’m thinking about how to be your man
Honesty and dreamin’ this is where I start my plans
Reciprocate your healin’
I try to understand
What it is that you’ve been feeling
I think we can.
Let go of reservations, sensations let them in
Embrace the conversations that usually cause an end
Pull into love’s station and let this love begin,
Gonna feel my feel gravitation of wanting it to live.
Lovin’ you be givin me is so healthy
It makes me wanna stay
Talking to each other so naturally
There’s nothin’ that we can’t say.

Fly away with me
Fly away with me

Fly ay ay ay ay away
Fly ay ay ay ay away
It’s gonna be all right, fly away.
I open up my heart for you
I know you feel it too
That the time is right.
Fly away with me
Fly away with me
Fly ay ay ay ay away
Fly ay ay ay ay away
It’s gonna be all right, fly away.

Lovin’

We started off with some hot and heavy love
You’re cooler than I‘d ever dreamed of
So quickly clicking, like we were meant to be
I was made for you and you were made for me.
Circumstances made it easy to do
Now we’re moving in together under one roof
No calculations on what we’re gonna do
Two young lovers with nothing to lose.
This situation had some disagreements coming
Now we both got emotions that are running
It’s such a battle to fight with the one you love
It’s getting rough.
We got fears and we’re pushing through
Through the years I’ll be lovin’ you.
I know about me, I know about you
Lovin’ has made it through
I wanna thank you for the truth my friend.
Now I can see
You and me
We were meant to be
We’re gonna help each other dream till the end.
Fallin’ in lovin’
Lovin’ you
Fallin’ in lovin’
Lovin’ you.

I know it’s not a one-way street that we be drivin’ down
So give me one more chance to turn my selfishness around
I read the books, take a look, and what it is I found
I give it all I got, if I wanna work it out.

I love you I never meant to make you feel that way

Looking back I know that you and me we were both trying to stay
The way it’s going, well it feels like we’re growing, well it makes me unafraid
Put in the work, well I know the work is worth it, if I want this love to be great.
We got fears, and we’re pushing through
Through the years I’ll be lovin’ you.
I know about me, I know about you
Lovin’ has made it through
I wanna thank you for the truth my friend.
Now I can see
You and me
We were meant to be.
Gonna help each other dream till the end
Fallin’ in lovin’
Lovin’ you
Fallin’ in lovin’
Lovin’ you.
Two young lovers on a mission for love
Trying to figure it out when the love’s gettin’ tough
Stay together we both have enough
We got the love, we got the love.
Fallin’ in lovin’
Lovin’ you
Fallin’’ in lovin’
Lovin’ you.
Fallin’ in lovin’
What I do
Fallin’ in lovin’
Lovin’ you.

My Life

Born with the music in my mind
I write songs that give me life
Thirty-seven years what a beautiful ride
The more I seek, the more I find.
How to navigate the mainstream
With positivity
Live, love, grow, it’s a human capability
See all the good things
And give ‘em energy
Here I go, it’s time to spread my wings.
This is my life
I know I can be
Anything I wanna dream
Focus like a laser beam.
This is my life
I know I can be
Living like a free bird
I’m gonna give it everything.
When I look up into the sky
I say I’m grateful for my life
Soften up to who’s inside
The more I sing the more I’m gonna find.
How to move with the movement
A key ingredient
Consent to what we love
And then we’ll find a new intelligence.
My time spent
Throwing positive
Vibrations to who it is
That’s gonna need it next.
This is my life
I know I can be

Anything I wanna dream
Focus like a laser beam.
This is my life
I know I can be
Living like a free bird
I’m gonna give it everything.
Whoa
Whoa
Overthrow Pinocchio
Feel the heart beat
One domino we're never too old
Now we sow the seeds and believe in our dreams.
This is my life
I know I can be
Anything I wanna dream
Focus like a laser beam.
This is my life
I know I can be
Living like a free bird
I’m gonna give it everything.
This is my life
I know I can be
Anything I wanna dream
Focus like a laser beam.
This is my life
I know I can be
Living like a free bird
I’m gonna give it everything.

Not My Mind

Moving through the universe contagious is our energy
The decades of the things we’ve learned embracing who it is we be
Agree to fight a war for peace and make friends with our enemies
We’re living in a mystery where they could write our eulogy.
Chalk it up to bravery, start living in a fantasy
We got a place to be created by the galaxy
This ain’t no fallacy, it’s simply a reality
A universal policy to rid us of the scarcity.
The choice is mine
The choice is yours
Open up break down the doors.
And the voice inside
Might be telling lies
I’ve had enough
Now I decide.
Whoa Whoa
I’m not my mind
Whoa whoa
Now we decide.
Turn off the TV
No more negativity
It’s time to tune in
To a new frequency
Say goodbye to news
That be giving you the blues
Turn that dial to the one that we can use.
Helping you and me feel amazing
Put away your fears and the pain will start fading
Out of our lives making room for the good vibes
Take a little time to let the silence realign
Our minds, our souls
Close our eyes and say goodbye to the old
Today is a new day another day to play, step into the realm it’s time to create.
The choice is mine
The choice is yours

Open up break down the doors.
And the voice inside
Might be telling lies
I’ve had enough
Now I decide.
Whoa whoa
I’m not my mind
Whoa whoa
Now we decide.
Whoa whoa
I’m not my mind
Whoa whoa
Now we decide.
The music is what we love
Helping you and me to rise above
The fear that we be facing
In the world that is racing
And music is ours keys to the cuffs
Listen to the music cause your melody is soothing
And the beat within you’s grooving when you’re feeling your good vibes.
Nothing to be losing come on harness it and use it
Contribute to the movement of loving this life.
Whoa whoa
I’m not my mind
Whoa whoa
Now we decide.
Whoa whoa
I’m not my mind
Whoa whoa
Now we decide.
Whoa whoa
I’m not my mind
Whoa whoa
Now we decide.

Whoa whoa
I’m not my mind

Whoa whoa
Now we decide.

Please Stop

Sink your teeth in
Let it begin
Now you’re livin’ within
Inside of my mind
I try to deny it
That you are poison.
Gotta stop thinking about you
I know what I got to do
I got to say goodbye.
Please stop calling
I’m done talking
Don’t come crawling back to me.
I’m done stalling
No more falling in love.
When I see your face
I make these mistakes
My spirit’s fadin’ away
I’m addicted to your game
There’s only me to blame
So sick of livin’ in shame.
Can’t stop thinking about you
All that you ever do
Is make me feel like I’m crazy and
I’m losin’ my mind.
Gotta stop thinking about you
I know what I gotta do
I got to say goodbye.
Please stop calling
I’m done talking
Don’t come crawling back to me.
I’m done stalling
No more falling in love.

I walk up to your room
I’m ready to tell you
It’s time for me to be walking away
You’re asking me to stay
My heart it gets afraid
And I walk away.
Please stop calling
I’m done talking
Don’t come crawling back to me.
I’m done stalling
No more falling in love with you.
Started walking
Back to nothing
This is where I
Choose to be.
I’m done stalling
No more falling in love.

Warrior

Walk, talk, dance, sing
What is it that I’m meant to bring
My features, built for adventure
Loving one another is in my nature.
Hands, hair, eyes, skin
So much strength that’s livin’ within
My teacher, growing deeper
Running with the land I am a leader.
I got the courage in me
Let go and let it release
Don’t stop from feeling It
It’s time for me to break the stone.
I feel my fire inside
I’m growing up in this life
Into the human that I need to be
I know that I am not alone.
I’m brave
I got what it takes
I am a warrior.
I’m brave
It’s time to make a change
I am a warrior.
Birds, bees, water, trees
Curiosity in me
Attention
I’m ready for the question
Zone right in, get present with the lessons.

What does a warrior mean?

It means be brave
With how I treat
Connections
Put away the tension
I’m ready for the risk of a new direction.
I see good things in me
I see the strengths I bring
No need to hesitate
It’s time for me to make my move.

I let my pain pass through
Don’t run, let in the truth
Sit down I’m gonna meditate
And put the pain into good use.

I’m brave
I got what it takes
I am a warrior.
I’m brave
It’s time to make a change
I am a warrior.
It’s time to re-arrange
Turn the page
Entertain the notion
That we will find way
Co-create
Let’s step into these better days.
I’m brave
I got what it takes
I am a warrior.
I’m brave
It’s time to make a change
I am a warrior.
I’m brave
I got what it takes

I am a warrior.
I’m brave
It’s time to make a change
I am a warrior.

Slow Down

It’s time to slow down
And give myself a little love right now
It’s time to slow down
And give myself a little love right now.
Since I was young I’ve been moving fast
Trying to be cool, keep up with the rest
Trophies, popularity and being the best dressed
I even did some hurtful things just to progress.
And I must confess, I was confused
A young kid living in a small town
Just trying to be cool
Losing myself, losing my truth
I don’t know what it was that I was trying to prove.
It’s time to slow down
And give myself a little love right now
It’s time to slow down
And give myself a little love right now.
I got caught up in chasing success
Outside I was so confident
Inside I was a mess
Stressed out even burned out
Never taking any time to rest
Well it seemed the faster that I moved
The quicker I regressed
Been depressed
And the way that I pushed through
Went out and went searching
For some brand new tools
Breathing air deeply, digging into some reading
Remembering life’s a gift and that you and me are free.
It’s time to slow down
And give myself a little love right now
It’s time to slow down
And give myself a little love right now.
Slow down

I’m moving too fast, I’m out of control
Slow down
I’m gonna figure out which way I’m heading
Slow down
It’s time for me to connect to my soul
Fill it up so I can send it out.
It’s time to slow down
And give myself a little love right now
It’s time to slow down
And give myself a little love right now.
It’s time to slow down
And give myself a little love right now
It’s time to slow down
And give myself a little love right now.

Shake It

I got a feeling
That you and me
We’re looking for the same things
We’re searching for some meaning, about this life.

I got a feeling you and me
Well we’re just trying to work it out
We’re trying to figure this life out
What living good is all about.

C’mon, c’mon and grow with me

When things are getting rough you know our roots get tough.

Shake it to the left, shake it to your right
Shake it through the darkness and step into your light.

Shake it to the left, shake it to your right
Shake it through the darkness and step into your light.

It’s up to you and me to choose what will we do
Got nothing to lose and nothing to prove
To anything or anyone so come on now and have some fun
It’s time to spread a little bit of love on everyone.

We can make a difference there’s different ways to deliver it

Look inside and we will find the beauty that we’re walking with
Shed the snakeskin, let the light in
Here we go, come on now get ready to begin.
