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

The Anti-Christmas Carol – Joss Stone

Hmm, yeah
Oooh, hah

It’s that time of year
When I set gettin’ sick
Of all the cheer
Every song you hear
Was a hit or a miss
From last century
Is it just me?
‘Cos it never much seems like the movie
(Like the movie)

So thank God
(Thank God)
Christmas comes once a year
(Only comes once a year)
Just once a year
(Just once a year)

Only bells I hear
Is last call, one and all
Cryin’ in their beer
‘Cos it’s gon’ take all year
For the debts to be met
So raise a glass for Christmas cheer
It never snows, only rain
I don’t know why we’re still dreamin’
Of a white… Christmas

Thank God it only comes once a year
(Only comes once a year)
(Only comes once a year)
Thank God it only comes once
(Only comes once a year)

Mama’s in the kitchen
She’s stressin’, oh no
The oven didn’t work, hey
Nothing’s cookin’, oh no
Brother, sister are fightin’
She’s cryin’
Boxer knocks the tree down
It makes me wanna shout

Hallelujah, thank God
That Christmas only comes once a year
Only comes once a year
Thank You, Jesus, for being born only once
I couldn’t deal with it
So Christmas only comes once a year
Thank God, Hallelujah
(Hallelujah)
For Christmas only lastin’ 24 hours of my life
(Hallelujah)
I tell you, Jesus, just this once
As a baby anyway

For the Love of You – Joss Stone

Feels good
Feels good to me
Feels good
Feels good to me

Drifting on a memory
Ain’t no place I’d rather be, no,
Than with you
Loving you
Day will make a way for night
All we need is candlelight
And a D’Angelo song
Ooh, so soft and so long
Glad to be here alone with a lover like no other
Sad to see a new horizon slowly coming into view
I wanna be living for the love of you
All that I’m giving is for the, for the love of you
Lovely as a ray of sun that touches me when the morning comes
Feels good to me
My love and me, ooh

Smoother than a gentle breeze
Blowing through my mind, weary
Soft as can be when you’re loving me
When you’re loving me
Love to be riding on the waves of your love
Enchanted with your touch
It seems to me we can sail together in and out of misery
I wanna be living for the love of you
All that I’m giving is for the love of you
I wanna be living for the love of you
All that I’m giving, giving, ooh, is for the love of you

Paradise I held within
Can’t feel insecure again
You’re the key
Oh, this I see, this I see, ooh
Now I’m there and I lose my way
Using words to try to say what I feel
I feel that love is free
I know that love is free

I might as well sign my name on a card which can say it a whole lot better
Ooh, only time will tell
Cause it seems that I’ve done just about all that I can do
I wanna be, ooh, I wanna be living
I wanna be living, living for the love of you
I wanna be giving, giving, ooh
All that I’m giving is for the love of you
Oh, it’s for the love of you

READ  Bad Habit - Joss Stone

I just wanna be giving all my love to you
Each and every day
That’s when I’ll be giving all my love to you

That’s all I wanna do
I’m giving all my love to you
You know that I’m living for you

Ooh, to love you

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
