Track Name: Raindrops (Scream my Name)
Raindrops,
I called her my raindrops
in a desert of pain.

Raindrops, he called me his raindrops in his desert of pain.
I answered my name.

Last night, I broke her defences.
Last night, he stole my defences.

And I want you to scream my name. x8
(Baby why won't you call my name? Baby now won't you scream my name?)
Track Name: Mviringo
Jumamosi hatukosi magharibi.
Jumapili twawasili bahari.
Jumatatu kuna watu na viatu kwa matatu ya finje.
Jumanne.

Twasonga mbele, twasonga mbele,
Kumbe ni mviringo. x2
Kila juma (twasonga mbele, twasonga mbele).
Kila juma.

Jumatano pangoni nyoka anatema ibilisi na fisi.
Alhamisi.
Ijumaa majama walijaa nasi basi wote kawa mashujaa.

Jino la pembe si dawa ya pengo.

Twasonga mbele, twasonga mbele,
Kumbe ni mviringo. x4
Kila juma (twasonga mbele, twasonga mbele).
Kila juma.
Track Name: Whatchyu Want?
What do you want from me? x2
Given you all my love, my pain, my joy.
How much more would you want?

Wacha mchezo.
Skiza basi us'kate kuleta ma pose kama angel.
You already know that.
Sawa basi leta mchezo.
Ukimbishwe kazi upate magodi kama devo.

You oughta know that.

What do you want from me? (What do you want from me?) x2
Given you all my love, my pain, my joy.
How much more would you want?

I've been loving you so long, so wrong.

Nipe kalamu nimwage damu.
Mbona siwezi kumlaki nidhamu?
Nasijiwezi kupaa mbele ya watu? Ole Wangu, Ole Wangu.

What do you want from me? (What do you want from me?) x2
Given you all my love, my pain, my joy.
How much more could you want? x2

I've been loving you, so wrong.
Track Name: Dare Me
Broken promises when you lied, and you said all I wanted to hear
In your voice and your breath,
I can smell your despair as you're falling my dear
I keep hoping, holding,
Cold and alone with my moments of sin

I keep chocking, holding out for my moments to breathe
Started smoking. Started chocking. I drink more than I breathe.

You wanna hold me? Dare me to drive?
Take me on a trip of the mind?
You wanna hold me? Dare me to dream?
Preach me to the point I believe.

Taste the point of my knife and you'll cry of the blood of a thousand desires.
Don't you watch from your chair and expect that you'd care
for the mud in my eyes.
Proving nowhere can host it,
Cold and alone with my moments of sin
Bent and broken, as we're choking out for my moments to breathe
Started smoking. Started chocking. I drink more than I breathe.

Spiralling down beyond my reach. x3

You wanna hold me? Dare me to drive?
Take me on a trip of the mind?
You wanna hold me? Dare me to dream?
Preach me to the point I believe. x4

You wanna hold me?
Track Name: Hurricanes
I'm broken,
My queen's gone no horsemen left to fix me up.
I'm broken. Splattered and shattered and scattered about.
You break me.

Then tell me, "Rise"
How dare you demand this, you broke me.
Don't tell me to fly, then drown me in thunder and hurricanes.

Hurricanes x4
Mbona wanizika madhorubani?

You break me,
Traps on my path tripping me up.
I'm falling...

I crawled my way up, got kicked out much further you chewed up my hope, you spat out my faith.
I'm not listening, why do I still hear you say, "Rise"?

So I'll rise.
Though broken I'll crawl, then I'll limp,
Then I'll walk, then I'll fly.
And chase down those thunders and hurricanes.

Hurricanes x8
Track Name: Hit The Night
I'm head strong, I'm heart sprung I'm feeling like this broken chord.
I need a wake-up call, a pick me up, to get me back on the road.

It's been false starts, with no sparks, this waking feels like a chore
I need to break out of this mould and face the biting cold.

I'm running up and down shooting for stars
I'm running up and down, running up and down
Running up and down

Let's hit the night, it's only you that's got me.
Let's find the road that will lead us home after all the heartache.
Let's hit the night.
Let's face the moment, let's dance again.

How do I find the words, how do I start?
Thought we were broke, yet we're still stuck.
Once again hanging on another: another broken dream another empty word another false start to another weak end
We built these walls, now these walls just close me in.

And I find myself
Running up and down looking for stars.
I'm running up and down, running up and down
Running up and down

Let's hit the night, it's only you that's got me.
Let's find the road that will lead us home after all the heartache.
Let's hit the night.
Let's face the moment, let's dance again.

Tumetoka mbali x 2
Tumetoka mbali, kumbe ni mviringo.
Kumbe ni mviringo

Let's hit the night, it's only you that's got me.
Let's find the road that will lead us home after all the heartache.
Let's hit the night.
Let's face the moment, let's dance again.
Track Name: Sunny Daze
Sunny days are haunting me again.
When my lover came to town. she's been gone, a long long long long time.
Please don't give me that poisoned sweet loving,
Harmonize my soul.
Don't make me lose control again.

I don't listen to radio anymore coz you're there.
I don't even want this drink, I wanna be aware.
The rain won't wash away my sorrows,
I don't care coz you're there.
I don't even want this drink, I wanna be aware.

I could be with just anyone, (anyone)
I really wish you would be my special girl (special one)
I wanna / don't wanna lose control again.
Nataka /Sitaki.

Light a spark, serenade the dark;
Whispers of your escapades and wondering ways
Hiding in the flickering flames of the hallways.
Shadows on the wall, it's sure to be like this for days.

I don't listen to radio anymore coz you're there.
I don't even want this drink, I wanna be aware.
The rain won't wash away my sorrows,
I don't care coz you're there.
I don't even want this drink, I'd rather be aware.

I could be with just anyone, (anyone)
I really wish you would be my special girl (special one)
I wanna / don't wanna lose control again.
Nataka / Sitaki. x2

Nataka / Sitaki (Lose control) ad lib

I don't listen to radio anymore coz you're there.
I don't even want this drink, I wanna be aware.
The rain won't wash away my sorrows,
I don't care coz you're there.
I don't even want this drink, I'd rather be aware.

I could be with just anyone, (anyone)
I really wish you would be my special girl (special one)
I wanna / don't wanna lose control again.
Nataka / Sitaki. x2

I don't wanna lose control.
Track Name: Chale ah
Ah

Chale ah, muje tadapana x2

Many days have gone by, I've had no word or reply
It hardly seems fair for all the things that we've shared
It had been a bonding, entertaining, intertwining
So happy were the moments lots of laughter floor rolling
Was there any lack, was there any misunderstanding?
Was there a bug in the mist and we couldn't talk about it?

Now you are gone, moving on, carrying on.
For the sake of our love turn back and

Chale ah, muje tadapana x2

The long chats that we had: intimate, crazy and the mad
Building castles in the air making promises that we were
Tackling the high mountains swimming deep in the sea
Weekends were always ours; exploring, feeling free.
We didn't see an end, walking hand in hand.
We saw a future together, our strength was our plan.

Now you are gone, moving on, carrying on.
For the sake of our love turn back and

Chale ah, muje tadapana x4

Chale ah, Chale ah, Chale ah x2
Track Name: Steal a Beat
What do you give to the one you watch steal your heart?
What do you say to the one your soul bears itself to?
I've been standing here all night just watching you
Steal a beat with every move you make.

Won't you stay just a little while longer?
Do that thing that you do
When you steal a beat from my still-beating heart.

Now it's already 2am and it's open season on the dance floor
But since you got here, I've been stuck on you. (Oh, I can't move)

I've been standing here all night just watching you
Steal a beat with every move you make.

Baby, stay just a little while longer?
Do that thing that you do
When you steal a beat from my still-beating heart.

Won't you stay just a little while longer?
Do that thing that you do
When you steal a beat from my still-beating heart x3

Won't you stay?
Track Name: The Right Now
Let us climb the water tower
And if we're startled we can shower in the rain
Far-off streaming lights like a rainbow
A city's promise of all it could be.

Or we can sneak into the pool
Go skinny dipping in the weekend when it’s empty
The stolen moments we live for
Just reaching out for your righteous embrace

Break it down

Don’t speak
Savour the moment while it’s open, and still honest
Don’t fear
Coz all you really need is some shots
Preferably Dutch.

Ooh Child
Forever’s never been guaranteed for eons
As long as I'm in here with you right now
That's something we will never forget
Ooh Child
Tomorrow never came for a reason but be sure
That as long as we commit to the right now
That's something we will never regret


We raise the sunroof of the car
So we can drive and toast the night sky
But you know the stars never cared,
And as we kissed they just callously stared, with their icy glares

Don’t speak
Better cherish the moment as we own it
Don’t fear
Coz all you really need is some shots
Preferably double, double-dutch.

Ooh Child
Forever’s never been guaranteed for eons
As long as I'm in here with you right now
That's something we will never forget

Ooh Child
Tomorrow never came for a reason but be sure
That as long as we commit to the right now
That's something we will never regret

Ooh Child
Forever’s never been guaranteed for eons
As long as I'm in here with you right now
That's something we will never forget
Ooh Child
Tomorrow never came for a reason but be sure
That as long as we commit to the right now
That's something we will never regret
Ooh Child
Forever’s never been guaranteed for eons
Tomorrow’s not here but today we can live for the right now, right now.
Right now, right now.
Tomorrow’s not here but today we can live for the right now, sweet child.
Sweet child, sweet child.
Track Name: Your Friend (Live at B'Ware Studios)
There's a night
Your voice was lifted in prayer
When fatigue and despair ensued.

With your eyes, you would see the unseen
Demons spawn run their rings round you.

In the night words were spoken
Spells lay broken and strewn
Who would understand?
I would be your friend till the end.

Coz i know you're true.

I'm heaven sent to live again
To be your strength
And live again
I'll be your strength, I'll be your friend.

Your friend.

Will you take my hand?
I will be your friend.
