Track Name: Turn The Lights Down Low
‘TURN YOUR LIGHTS DOWN LOW’
Turn your lights down low
And pull your window curtains
Oh, let Jah moon come shining in
Into our life again

Sayin' ooh, it's been a long, long (long, long, long, long) time
I kept this message for you, girl
But it seems I was never on time
Still I wanna get through to you, girlie
On time, on time

I want to give you some love (good, good lovin')
I want to give you some good, good lovin' (good, good lovin')
Oh I, oh I, oh I
Say, I want to give you some good, good lovin' (good, good lovin')

Turn your lights down low
Never try to resist, oh no!
Oh, let my love come tumbling in
Into our life again

Sayin' ooh, I love ya!
And I want you to know right now
I love ya!
And I want you to know right now
'Cause I that I
Track Name: Eu Vim Da Bahia
‘EU VIM DA BAHIA’-Gilberto Gil

Eu vim
Eu vim da Bahia cantar
Eu vim da Bahia contar
Tanta coisa bonita que tem
Na Bahia, que é meu lugar
Tem meu chão, tem meu céu, tem meu mar
A Bahia que vive pra dizer
Como é que se faz pra viver
Onde a gente não tem pra comer
Mas de fome não morre
Porque na Bahia tem mãe Iemanjá
De outro lado o Senhor do Bonfim
Que ajuda o baiano a viver
Pra cantar, pra sambar pra valer
Pra morrer de alegria
Na festa de rua, no samba de roda
Na noite de lua, no canto do mar

Eu vim da Bahia
Mas eu volto pra lá
Eu vim da Bahia
Mas algum dia eu volto pra lá

I Came From Bahia
(Eu Vim da Bahia)

Track Name: Space Oditty
‘SPACE ODDITY’

Ground Control to Major Tom
Ground Control to Major Tom
Take your protein pills and put your helmet on

This is Ground Control to Major Tom
You've really made the grade
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
Now it's time to leave the capsule if you dare

"This is Major Tom to Ground Control
I'm stepping through the door
And I'm floating in the most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today

Here am I sitting in my tin can
Far above the world
Planet Earth is blue
And there's nothing I can do

Though I'm past one hundred thousand miles
I'm feeling very still
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
Tell my wife I love her very much, she knows

Ground Control to Major Tom
Your circuit's dead, there's something wrong
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear And I'm floating around my tin can
Far above the Moon
Planet Earth is blue
And there's nothing I can do."
Track Name: Sicillienne
Sicilienne-Lyrics-By: Elizabeth Shepherd

The very one for whom my heart sings
Is burying me alive
And here I’m left with two broken wings
To heavy and weary to fly

How soon its seems for love to fade
How quickly its over and done
And I who thought it was here to stay
Believing it finally had come

Long as the morning dew cling to the grasses
Long as the noonday sun graces the sky
Long as the evening winds brush through the meadows
Whispering your name like an echoing sigh

Longing, my heart will call for you
Wandering, under the sun,
Aching, my lips will burn for you
Longing, under the moon
Track Name: My Generation
‘MY GENERATION’

People try to put us d-down
Just because we get around
Things they do look awful c-c-cold
I hope I die before I get old

My generation
This is my generation, baby

Why don't you all f-fade away
Don't try to dig what we all s-s-say
I'm not trying to cause a big s-s-sensation
I'm just talkin' 'bout my g-g-generation
My generation
This is my generation, baby
Track Name: You To Me Are Everything
I would take the stars
Out of the sky for you
Stop the rain from falling
If you asked me to
I'd do anything for you
Your wish is my command
I could move a mountain when
Your hand is in my hand
Words cannot express
How much you mean to me
There must be some other way
To make you see
If it takes my heart and soul
You know I'd pay the price
Everything that I possess
I'd gladly sacrifice
Oh you to me are everything
The sweetest song
That I could sing
Oh baby, oh baby
To you I guess
I'm just a clown
Who picks you up
Each time you're down
Oh baby, oh baby
You give me just
A taste of love to
Build my hopes upon
You know you got
The power boy
To keep me holding on
So now you got
The best of me
Come on and
Take the rest of me
Oh baby
Though you're close to me
We seem so far apart
Maybe given time
You'll have a change of heart
If it takes forever boy then
I'm prepared to wait
The day you give your love to me
Won't be a day too late
Oh you to me are everything
The sweetest song
That I could sing
Oh baby, oh baby
To you I guess
I'm just a clown
Who picks you up
Each time you're down
Oh baby, oh baby
You give me just
A taste of love to
Build my hopes upon
You know you got
The power boy
To keep me holding on
So now you got
The best of me
Come on and
Take the rest of me
Oh baby
Track Name: Blame It On The Sun
‘BLAME IT ON THE SUN’- Songwriters
WONDER, STEVIE/WRIGHT, SYREETA

Where has my love gone?
How can I go on?
It seems dear love has gone away
Where is my spirit?
I'm nowhere near it
Oh yes, my love has gone astray

But I'll blame it on the sun
The sun that didn't shine
I'll blame it on the wind and the trees
I'll blame it on the time that never was enough
I'll blame it on the tide and the sea
But my heart blames it on me

Who poured the love out?
What made this bitter doubt?
Is peace not here for me to see?
Wish I could tell you
(Wish I could tell you)
What I am feeling
(What I am feeling)
But words won't come for me to speak

But I'll blame it on the sun
That didn't fill the sky
I'll blame it on the birds and the trees
I'll blame it on the day that ended once too soon
I'll blame it on the nights that could not be
But my heart blames it on me, yeah
(Your heart blames it on you this time)

I am in the wilderness
You are in the music
In the man's car next to me
Somewhere in my sadness
I know, I won't fall apart completely
When I need to be rescued
And I need a place to swim
I have a rock to cling to in the storm
When no one can hear me calling
I have you, I can sing to
And in all this
And in all my life

You are the lovers rock
The rock that I cling to
You're the one
The one, I swim to in a storm
Like a lovers rock

I am in the wilderness
You are in the music
In the man's car next to me
Somewhere in my sadness
I know, I won't fall apart completely
And in all this
And in all my life
You are the lovers rock
The rock that I cling to
You're the one
The one, I swim to in a storm
Track Name: Angie
Angie, Angie, when will those clouds all disappear?
Angie, Angie, where will it lead us from here?
With no loving in our souls and no money in our coats
You can't say we're satisfied
But Angie, Angie, you can't say we never tried
Angie, you're beautiful, but ain't it time we said good-bye?
Angie, I still love you, remember all those nights we cried?
All the dreams we held so close seemed to all go up in smoke
Let me whisper in your ear:
Angie, Angie, where will it lead us from here?
Oh, Angie, don't you weep, all your kisses still taste sweet
I hate that sadness in your eyes
But Angie, Angie, ain't it time we said good-bye?
With no loving in our souls and no money in our coats
You can't say we're satisfied
But Angie, I still love you, baby
Ev'rywhere I look I see your eyes
There ain't a woman that comes close to you
Come on Baby, dry your eyes
But Angie, Angie, ain't it good to be alive?
Angie, Angie, they can't say we never tried
