Love What does it mean to me? Does it have the power to set my soul free? Love I wanna get next to her, She sings a sweeter song than any other bird Love I'm down and out I'm on my knees Hear me plead I need, I need, I need Love And guidance to be true Cause my thoughts are wrapped in darkness And I don’t know what to do (KB07) When you fall off track remember that we got you This is a brotherhood helping out with the weight We spot you (John) But you haven't seen life through my eyes Honestly in the morning, when I wake up It’s getting harder and harder to try (KB07) Understand that you gotta keep movin' forward Learning from the past like Sankofa Just keep flying toward your goals And remember to set each one high Giving each your best The only limit you got is the sky (chorus) You've got to make up your mind Don't let nobody hold you down this time You've got to spread those wings and fly And don't stop 'til you reach the edge of the sky Love The pressure is on All this on my shoulders makes my heart weigh a ton Love Give me the strength to go on I'm trying to be a king, but i feel more like a pawn Love But I’ll bleed to succeed I'd risk everything just to make you believe in Love So believe in me, hear me plead I need, I need, I need love (chorus)
When the sun was shinning bright you were there When the darkest clouds came you were there You were there for me and I appreciate the love I’ll send it back your way because I love you so much More than the moon, stars, earth and even the sun More than the trees, our love is deeper than the ocean Our love is peace, symbolicly like a billion doves I'll give you my whole heart and never less than that love You take me higher more than any kind of drug and I'm telling you all of this girl because (chorus) I wanna Thank You baby For being my everything I wanna Thank You so from the bottom of my soul When there’s a darkness you’re like sunshine When I was blessed with health you were there When I was sick and not myself you were there When I was out on the town When I was guzzlin crown When I was stuck in a frown When I was tuckin' em down When I was stuck with them clowns When I was just out of bounds When I was gonna jump out When I just wanted to drown When I was lost and I'm found When I was tossed upside down When I was crushed by the pounds When I was rushed by them hounds When I was lost and unsound I can’t express how, but your love heals so I’m telling you now (chorus) Rays of sun come down on me (your) Rays of sun come down on me
The Owls (free) 03:49
I wish the band could be called The Nerds And dedicate every waking hour to feeding a monkey that serves my brain Tap the anime and comedy veins Give me that unusual fix for the slightly insane Dark rings around the eyes, growing sensitive to bright lights Putting up with the days just to live for the nights All my friends and me watchin’ our buds on TV In between swicked artwork and beats that are funky (chorus) Give it up, Give it up ya’ll Give it up for [adult swim] ya’ll I wish the band could be called The Owls Night time come home baked ready to chow The first thing I do after I walk through the door is Grab the remote from off the floor Turn on the TV, Veg out, Line up the shows but What’s it gonna be next week, nobody knows Oh, but whatever’s on you know I’ll be watchin’ baby (chorus)
1000 Symphonies (free) 04:15
Play things I like that make me feel good Everyone should, It would make the world A better place, throughout our journey Rapidly flying through space On a globe that spins round and round When I think, I love the sound It sounds like 1000 symphonies surrounding me Orchestrated by the sea
See The Light (free) 03:54
When I was a kid I was naïve to the world and it’s ways Way back then I had more sunny days And things on my mind but nothing good to say My thoughts in darkness, my lonely escape When I was a kid I was naïve to the world and it’s ways Way back then I had more sunny days Now I search for something to say, things on my mind I was lost in darkness but then I opened my eyes and (chorus) Now I see the light but it’s too bright
Trip Out (free) 02:13
JB Kinda Thang (free) 04:02
Laid back, It’s a JB kinda thang Coolin’ out, It’s a JB kinda thang Say it loud, It's a JB kinda thang Open your mind to the JB kinda thang
Yeah Yeah Yeah (free) 01:43
Shoop A Loop (free) 01:50
Chitown Seasons (free) 03:43
Just like summer, fall, winter and spring Like the seasons, we all gotta change For the better, and sometimes for the worse Is it a blessing or is it a curse? Smoke screen mystery Spread so thin that we can’t even see Joy and pain partners in the game Give your praises or place your blame In between the lines is where we’ll meet If you get there first, please wait for me (chorus) Which ever way the wind blows I would never want to go it alone Just like summer, fall, winter and spring Like the seasons, we all gotta change New experience equals new intelligence Theres never enough, some times my mind puts up a fence Intangible, but a mean machine Sometimes so tall that I can’t even leave Drop to my knees start clawing at the ground I’m digging to find a light and if I make my way out then In between the lines is where we’ll meet If you get there first, please wait for me (chorus) But now I’m drivin Drive into the storm Now I’m driving, but I’m not driving alone We’re riders on the storm
Bucktown Breathes (free) 01:29
Center Of Attention (free) 03:07
When life is just a nightmare And love becomes a trend Where everything is nothing And the beginning is the end (chorus) When you're the center of attention You'll never let them see The real soul inside of you I just want to set mine free Why do we have eyes If we don’t use them to see? (chorus)
Shadow (free) 00:47
If there was never any light what would happen to our shadow? Im only deep enough to realize that I'm shallow My head, I keep it up but it's hard to keep it straight When I dont believe in love and I can't cope with hate Metal starts to rust Leaves turn to dust and the difference between love and lust Clarifies as trust
All Our Favorite Shows (free) 00:25
Inuyasha! Family Guy! Futurama! Aqua Teens! All my favorite shows All my favorite shows
