Me done, now me ah strong, me leavin' (x4) Black bruise in me black mind made me black heart, Dunno how to react How to show love me forgot And now me losing my mind Drowned by this distress I don't belong in this place No one can finally free me up from this mess But myself, I guess Me done, now me ah strong, me leavin' (x4) Both executioner and victim Wicked game I won't play anymore (x2) No more no less we are hurting ourselves Everything is painful in the place where I have rest I think I do deserve so much more, my dear Crystal clear I don't wanna be here Me done, now me ah strong, me leavin' (x4)

I like it. Don’t stop it, no. I like it. I feel its glow. I like it. Oh can You see? At every beat it’s getting deeper in me. Reggae is sexy, Relaxed it goes deep in the veins and heart. As water to soil, it nourishes your feelings and moisturize it all. Roaring of joy. stepping on private land. It’s coming rocking in your guts. It rocks much harder than any gifted man.

No matter to fall again No matter all the blows You learn about yourself And your freedom No one can tell what´s wrong No one can silence your soul You keep yourself alone With your freedom Now is the moment Everything can change in your life A jump in your life I hope to learn On this long road What are the keys Which open the door Love goes in one direction Not to lose the hope With care and affection When things go wrong. Now is the moment Everything can change in your life A jump in your life. No matter what they know No matter what they do Let your light shine strong For a good reason No one can stop your steps No one can force you go Follow the sound of pow Who cries freedom Now is the moment Everything can change in your life A jump in your life I hope to learn On this long road What are the keys Which open the door Love goes in one direction Not to loose the hope With care and affection When things go wrong. Now is the moment Everything can change in your life A jump in your life…….

La vida se rompe y sólo la cobija el mar en una tierra dividida quién puede tanto dolor llorar. Y si no se detiene el impulso de búsqueda quien traza la línea hoy hace la herida. Puede no ser una idea sencilla pero no es una idea vacía ¿por qué fortificar un supuesto bienestar? no somos una isla Gobiernan sin memoria buscando su propia victoria su apuesta es el miedo no intentar comprendernos... ¿Es esta la única alternativa? conformarnos con el naufragio como si fuera inevitable tal vez tengamos la llave. Puede no ser una idea sencilla pero no es una idea vacía ¿por qué fortificar un supuesto bienestar? no somos una isla No somos una isla La historia se escribirá igual con tu silencio o tu solidaridad pensemos bien cuál es nuestro lugar En mi nombre no cierres la puerta, en mi nombre no uses la violencia, en mi nombre no quiero indiferencia. Antes de golpear, en mi nombre da la bienvenida.

Si me buscan digo no me van a encontrar Pienso marcharme lejos hacia otro lugar Donde ya no existan ni codicia ni maldad Solo buena energía y muchas ganas de crear Mucha música para compartirla Mucha música para disfrutar Buena música pa’ poder sentirla Pa’ vivir, para vibrar Y si me buscan digo no me van a encontrar Pienso marcharme lejos hacia otro lugar Donde se compartan altruismo y humildad Buena energía y muchas ganas de crear Mucha música para compartirla Mucha música para disfrutar Buena música pa’ poder sentirla Pa’ vivir, para vibrar Desde los comienzos de mi vida La música siempre me acompañó Iba conmigo siempre que llovía Y también en los días de sol Caminando escuchaba mis cintas Luego discos en mi habitación Poco a poco se convirtió en una guía Sin la música no encuentro dirección Y yo la busco A cada momento yo la busco Siento que estoy fuera de este mundo Lleno de injusticia y de maldad Y por fin puedo escapar Con la música puedo compartir Con la música puedo disfrutar Esa música quiero yo sentirla Pa’ vivir para vibrar Con la música puedo compartir Con la música puedo disfrutar Esa música quiero yo sentirla Pa’ vivir… Cuando yo estoy triste pongo un disco y mi alma se transporta Hacia otra dimensión Esos pensamientos tan confusos, mi espíritu los ordena Convirtiéndolos en canción No imagino mi vida sin ella Se ha convertido en la solución A cualquier problema que se presenta Siempre Música esa es la misión Y yo la busco A cada momento yo la busco Siento que estoy fuera de este mundo Lleno de injusticia y de maldad Y por fin puedo escapar Si me buscan digo no me van a encontrar Pienso marcharme lejos hacia otro lugar Donde ya no existan ni codicia ni maldad Solo buena energía y muchas ganas de crear Mucha música para compartirla Mucha música para disfrutar Mucha música pa’ poder sentirla Pa’ vivir, para vibrar Y si me buscan digo no me van a encontrar Pienso marcharme lejos hacia otro lugar Donde se compartan altruismo y humildad Buena energía y muchas ganas de crear Mucha música para compartirla Mucha música para disfrutar Buena música pa’ poder sentirla Pa’ vivir, para vibrar Mucha música para compartirla Mucha música para disfrutar Buena música pa’ poder sentirla Para vivir… Mucha música Buena música Esa música.
