“Wanna Be With You"

(Theron Feemster, E. Nathaniel Dawkins III

CHORUS (INTRO)
I wanna be with you I wanna be with you I wanna be with you I wanna be with you

VERSE 1
When I wake up in the morning I ask myself Is there somewhere else that I'd rather be? And the answer to the question I ask myself I doesn't matter as long as you're with me

CHORUS
I wanna be with you
(You know that it’s true)
I wanna be with you
(Oh oh yes I do)
I wanna be with you
(And not by myself)
I wanna be with you
(Don’t wanna be with nobody else)

VERSE 2
When I’m looking up at the stars I often wonder why
You’re sitting here with me and not up in the sky
But I ain't gonna complain I got myself a good thing
You’re an angel but I ain't giving back your wings...and that’s ‘cause

CHORUS
I wanna be with you
(I like your style)
I wanna be with you
(Oh you make me smile) I wanna be with you (And not by myself)
I wanna be with you
(Don’t wanna be with nobody else)

BRIDGE
There ain't no doubt about it I'm addicted your drug
No I can't go with out it
I'm a fiend for your sweet love

CHORUS
I wanna be with you
(I can’t lie)
I wanna be with you (Oh you make so high) I wanna be with you (And not by myself)
I wanna be with you
(Don’t wanna be with nobody else)

BREAKDOWN (8 bars)

VERSE 3
When I'm driving my car I don't wanna get too far Cuz I always wanna be right next to you
So I put your pretty picture on my steering wheel Now when I’m rolling I'm enjoying the view

CHORUS
I wanna be with you
To the very last day
I wanna be with you
When I'm old and gray
I wanna be with you
Until the pigs learn to fly
I wanna be with you
Until politicians stop telling lies I wanna be with you
Until hell freezes over
I wanna be with you
Until tiger blood gets sober I wanna be with you
And not by myself
I wanna be with you
And nobody else


“Another Life”

(Freddy Wexler, E. Nathaniel Dawkins III)

VERSE 1
I don’t wanna tell you about a life we’ll never know I don’t wanna tell you about a moving picture show That’s in my mind all black and white
Shakes your soul and makes you cry
They had it all but let it die

CHORUS
Maybe it’s another time Maybe it’s another day Maybe it’s another life For you and me

VERSE 2
What if tomorrow was the first day that we met? And what if tomorrow was a day we could forget? I’d make you light up in the dark
Paint the sky and leave our mark
So that everyone could see what would never be

CHORUS
Maybe it’s another time Maybe it’s another day Maybe it’s another life For you and me

BRIDGE
Sweetest thing that I ever had Love so good it hurt so bad
Life is cold but I ain’t mad
Not at that, no I’m not mad at that I ain’t mad at that
Cuz I know that what we hold Is the greatest story never told

CHORUS
Maybe it’s another time Maybe it’s another day Maybe it’s another life For you and me

BREAK

CHORUS


“Here Today”

(E. Nathaniel Dawkins III)

VERSE 1
I'm a long lost wandering soul trying to find where I belong
And I’m looking for place where it feels alright to be wrong
Just a loud mouth, hard-headed, fool-hearted, stubborn old son of a gun Chip off the old block with a chip on my shoulder that weighs a ton

PRE CHORUS 1
All I know for sure is that nothing is forever
And all that matters is how we get along together Life gets harder every day that I get older
I hope I figure out why I'm here before it's over

CHORUS
‘Cause we’re here today And gone tomorrow We’re here today
And gone tomorrow We’re here today
And gone tomorrow

VERSE 2
I’ve been stuck at home alone on nights when no one calls
And I've had nights where I could take my pick or have them all
And I've had those days where I search my pockets for nickel and a dime And I've had those days where trying to make money was a waste of time

PRE CHORUS 2
I've had shiny brand new leather penny loafers And I've had torn up used old tennies handed over All I know for sure is that nothing is forever
And all that matters is how get along together

CHORUS
‘Cause we’re here today And gone tomorrow We’re here today
And gone tomorrow We’re here today
And gone tomorrow
We ain’t promised tomorrow So I’m gonna live for today

BRIDGE
Been from five-star hotels to cockroach motels
And rodeo drive retails to thrift store re-sales
I’ve had chauffeured town cars to an old broken down car It ain’t what happens to you it’s what you do about it

CHORUS
‘Cause we’re here today And gone tomorrow We’re here today
And gone tomorrow We’re here today
And gone tomorrow We’re here today And gone tomorrow


“Ticking Bomb”

(E. Nathaniel Dawkins III, Tim James, Antonina Armato James, Adam Schmalholz)

CHORUS
The whole world’s sitting on a ticking bomb The whole world’s sitting on a ticking bomb So keep your calm and carry on
The whole world’s sitting on a ticking bomb

VERSE 1
The sun may never rise again
The question ain’t if but when
The see will boil and the sky will fall The sun may never rise again
The silent war has begun
We’re staring down a loaded gun No refuge found on solid ground This human race can’t be won

CHORUS
The whole world’s sitting on a ticking bomb The whole world’s sitting on a ticking bomb So keep your calm and carry on
The whole world’s sitting on a ticking bomb ...
And it’s about to explode
(The whole world) x4

VERSE 2
They’re reaching in my pockets again The ice we’re standing on is thin Making plans with greedy hands They’re reaching in my pockets again
The future is a dying art
Laying in a ditch in the dark
I need you here but all I hear (is) The beating of a broken heart

PRE CHORUS
Don’t wait to say goodbye You’re running out of time Whatever you believe
It’s easy to see

CHORUS
The whole world’s sitting on a ticking bomb The whole world’s sitting on a ticking bomb So keep your calm and carry on
The whole world’s sitting on a ticking bomb ...
And it’s about to explode (x2)
(The whole world)
The whole world’s sitting on a ticking bomb And it don’t care what side you’re on
The whole world’s sitting on a ticking bomb So keep your calm and carry on
The whole world’s sitting on a ticking bomb

VERSE 1
He was mean old gangster, two bucks fifty
Five foot eleven with a attitude shifty
Trigger finger itchy, always looking for a reason scratch The boys in blue, nah, they wasn't even a match

Fully automatic he dumping with no pause
Fight without flaws take two to the jaw
Keep scrapping until your knuckles all raw
In the streets respect is earned the hard old fashioned way Cradle to the grave everyday somebody’s passing away

CHORUS
That’s how the rich get rich, and the poor stay poor
Even though they got it all, they still want more
I said the rich get rich, and the poor stay poor
They’re trying to take mines and they’re trying to take yours

VERSE 2
He was an uptight suburbanite, pushing two fifty
A little over six five with a suit and tie spiffy
Business hustle witty, always coming with a scheme to hatch Them pinstripe corporate dudes, nah, they wasn’t even a match For an ivy-league grad in a penthouse pad
Trust fund baby got the gravy from his dad
Lost it on the market when the dot-com bubble burst
Had to cook the books a little bit to fix the troubled purse Grease on Wall Street is earned the old fashioned way
Collect the bread you make from the spread and hide the cash away

CHORUS
That’s how the rich get rich, and the poor stay poor
Even though they got it all, they still want more
I said the rich get rich, and the poor stay poor
They’re trying to take mines and they’re trying to take yours
Somebody help me out Hey hey hey hey

CHORUS
You know the rich get rich, and the poor stay poor
Even though they got it all, they still want more
I said the rich get rich, and the poor stay poor
They’re trying to take mines and they’re trying to take yours

"Red Velvet Seat"

Verse
Two black horses and one black driver
I chose you as my woman because you're a survivor After everything we been through
And what's to come
For all the things I did
And haven't done
For every time that you called
And I didn't answer
I want take this moment
That I got the chance to
say , That I love you
Say, That I care
Say, that I need you
Say, right here
For the whole world to see

CHORUS
In my red velvet seat
You can sit next to me
Got a bouquet of lilies and daisies and roses For you to keep
In my red velvet seat

Verse
A box of chocolates and a little champagne And burning a hole in my pocket is this ring That I stay been had a long time ago
I wanted to give you but I wasn't sure
If you was gonna stay around to let it grow But you never left my side

That you love me That you care That you need me Right here
and that you want to be

CHORUS
In my red velvet seat
You can sit next to me
Got a bouquet of lilies and daisies and roses For you to keep
In my red velvet seat

Girl close your eyes and open ears
Let the sound if the city ease your fears
This carriage was made for a king and queen
You can have anything you dream in my red velvet seat
Oh, Oh
You can have anything that you want if you're with me Oh, Oh
whoo, whoo,
In my red velvet seat


"Wake Me Up"
(E. Nathaniel Dawkins III, Mike Einziger, Tim Bergling)

VERSE 1
Feeling my way through the darkness
Guided by a beating heart
I can't tell where the journey will end
But I know where to start
PRE CHORUS
They tell me I'm too young to understand
They say I'm caught up in a dream
Life will pass me by if I don't open up my eyes
Well that's fine by me

CHORUS (2x)
So wake me up when it's all over
When I'm wiser and I'm older
All this time I was finding myself
And I didn't know I was lost

VERSE 2
I tried carrying the weight of the world
But I only have two hands
Hope I get the chance to travel the world
But I don't have any plans

PRE CHORUS
Wish that I could stay forever this young
Not afraid to close my eyes
Life's a game made for everyone
And love is the prize

CHORUS (2x)
So wake me up when it's all over
When I'm wiser and I'm older
All this time I was finding myself
And I didn't know I was lost

Didn't know I was lost

I didn't know I was lost
I didn't know (didn't know, didn't know)


"Lift Your Spirit"

To all the good times throughout the years And just remember it ain't where you're from It's where you're at
It ain't who you know
It's who's got your back

This one goes out to the people who helped me most in the world

It's who's got your back

It's who's got your back


"Love Is The Answer"

(E. Nathaniel Dawkins III, Pharrell Williams)

VERSE 1
Broken hearts everywhere
From stepping on love we don't care
Somebody tell me what we gonna do
Even though it's plenty to share
People hungry in the streets life just ain't fair
But you never think about it until it's you

PRECHORUS
Now I'm gonna say how I feel
And what I wanna say is love is the only thing that's real
Now I'm gonna tell you what to do
Just believe that love is the only thing we have that's true

CHORUS
Love is the answer
Love is the answer

Love is the answer to the questions in your mind
If you looking it's the answer that you'll find

It's the only thing that everybody needs
It's the only thing that makes us truly free

VERSE 2
Friends nowhere to be found
To help you when you are down
But you know that you're the one to blame
We know what's wrong from what's right
Nobody wins in a fight but still we play the game

CHORUS
Love is the answer
Love is the answer

Love is the answer to the questions in your mind
If you looking it's the answer that you'll find

It's the only thing that everybody needs
It's the only thing that makes us truly free

BRIDGE
Just look around the whole wide world
So many beautiful things to see
Take my hand and come along spread some love with me
