Babylon (Feat. Nneka) – Joss Stone

Lirik lagu: Babylon (Feat. Nneka)

As you dey so
U dey bow ur head
As u dey there so
U dey shed those tears
My broda make u stand up
This life u got nothing to loose
My sister make u wake up
Journey wen u don waka no be invane

Me I know say
You dey work well well
You don sweat well well; suffer suffer well well
Waka waka well well

Why my people dey suffa for this naija
Why my people dey suffa for Africa

For the people of the ghettos
Na blood shed and sorrow dey rain
Dem don blind our eyes with dem wordly things
Say ‘d battle never finish oh it just begins
Saro wiwa talk am, azikiwe talk am awolowa talk am
U na no dey hear u fit kill d’ messenger
But u no fit kill the message
Kill me messenger, u no fit kill the message

Why my people dey sufa for Africa
Why my people dey suffa for this naija, in babylon

Suffer suffa, oh naija
Suffer aahhhh? Africa
In you babylon
On our way to zion

Bruised But Not Broken – Joss Stone

Been alot that I’ve been through
I cried a tear a time or two
Baby, you know I cried some over you, yeah
Had my heart kicked to the ground
Love ripped me up and tore me down, baby

But that ain’t enough to break me
Cuz I’ll rise above it
And I’ll pick myself up
And I’ll dust the pain off my heart

[CHORUS]
And I’ll be alright
And I’ll love again
And the wounds will mend
I’m bruised but not broken
And the pain will fade
I’ll get back on my feet
It’s not the end of me
My heart is still open
I’m bruised but not broken

Been alot of tears stained nights
I thought the tears were here for life, baby
The hurt came on and held on tight, yeah
Took a chance, I took a fall
Love broke my heart and shattered all my dreams
But I won’t be down on my knees
Cuz I’ll rise above it
And I’ll pick myself up
And I’ll shake the rain out of my heart

[CHORUS]
And I’ll be alright
And I’ll love again
And the wounds will mend
I’m bruised but not broken
And the pain will fade
I’ll get back on my feet
It’s not the end of me
My heart is still open
I’m bruised but not broken

Gonna pick my heart up
Take my life back
Shake the hurt away
Pull myself together, put the pieces back in place
I learned love’s so hard
Love left my soul scarred
I was shattered inside

[CHORUS]
And I’ll be alright
And I’ll love again
And the wounds will mend
I’m bruised but not broken
And the pain will fade
I’ll get back on my feet
It’s not the end of me
My heart is still open
I’m bruised but not broken

Cutting the Breeze – Joss Stone

I met this man
On the border of Spain
It was a sunny afternoon
I said “Can I talk to you?”
So I pulled my van to the side
He said “I like your smile”
I said “I like yours too”
But there was nothing going on

Just cutting the breeze
Nothing I need
Fighting to be free
With just enough time,
To have a smoke or two

Hey, hmmm yes

He had no idea
Of the songs I sing
He had no clue
Of the weight I’d been wearing
Told stories of the wars he fought
His love affairs and how he got caught
He’s gonna build a house in Mexico now
Cause he’s finally learnt to let it all go
That’s why I’m here

Just cutting the breeze
Yes see I
Nothing we need
Fighting to be free
With just enough time,
To have a smoke or two

Yeah
Or three or four or whatever fits you
Ooh ooh ooh yeah

Driving along in my van
No thoughts to figure out, no master plan
No stressing and no demand and I like it that way
I had to get away, I had to, I had to

Feel the breeze
I had to feel it
Fighting to be free
Yes I was
There was nothing that we need
Nothing that we need
Except a smoke or two
Or maybe a beer and a few

Cutting the breeze
Nothing that we need, nothing we need
Fighting to be free, yes we were
With just enough time, to have a smoke or two

Cry Myself to Sleep – Joss Stone

I could hardly speak
Cause you stood on every word
That I muttered
I looked at you and lied with my lips
I thought that I loved you
While my soul was asking why
Why I’m not surprised
I lost my faith in the truth
And in turn I lost you
I won’t cry myself to sleep no
Stop before it starts
Gonna find myself a pain
And write down my heart

I won’t cry myself to sleep no
Don’t let it go too far
Put in down on paper
The reason we’re apart

Ah, where it’s tough to see
To understand a girl like me
I find it hard to say
Anything I’m feeling
So I will concentrate
The hurt I live and breathe in

So I won’t
I won’t cry myself to sleep no
Stop before it starts
Gonna find myself a pain
And write down my heart
I won’t cry myself to sleep no
Don’t let it go too far
Put in down on paper
The reason we’re apart

Oh yeahh
Is there a good reason?

I won’t cry myself to sleep no
Stop before it starts
I gonna find myself a pain
Yes I will
I won’t cry myself to sleep no
Don’t let it go too far
Put in down on paper
I won’t…

So I’m letting you go
I’m letting you go
Yes I am
I won’t…
I won’t cry myself to sleep no
