Track Name: Know what is good
We are runnin’ through tough times

Where the people seem to never come together, take whatever,

they say jump you say how high

They tell you what to like

But we can just make it better, fight together,

live forever against time

‘Cause I know, I know, I know, I know, I know what is good!

What is hip and what is not

All depends on what you’re feeling, how you´re feeling,

but we need a revolution of the mind

The example of James Brown

With his music takin’ chances, making changes,

it’s up to you, do something now

‘Cause I know, I know, I know, I know, I know what is good!

Don’t let them tell you baby, I know what is good!

Please don’t get me wrong

You have to take control of your life

But if you need some inspiration, here we are

‘Cause I know, I know, I know, I know, I know what is good!

‘Cause you know, you know, you know, you know, you know what is good!

‘Cause we know, we know, we know, we know, we know what is good!

Don’t let them tell you baby
Track Name: Powafunk
We’re gonna take you high and make you realize

We play the music that makes you wanna

dance and makes you feel alright

I’ll tell you what to do when it’s the right time

‘cause this beat is gonna make you groove and

feel the Powafunk

Chorus

You’ve got to feel the beat now

Because the groove won’t let you stop now

You gotta get the beat now

It takes you high and it’s for real

You’ve got to feel the beat now

It makes you feel the powafunk

Your booty on the beat now

‘cause Powafunk is now here to stay

This rhythm that I’m playing will keep

your body shaking, the bass will turn you crazy

Get ready to get down

We’re gonna take you high and make you realize

We play the music that you wanna dance

to ‘cause this is Powafunk

Powafunk!!! Powafunk!!!

Chorus

You find the best reason to get down

Powafunk Powafunk Powafunk

This is the time we take to say it loud

Powafunk Powafunk

Chorus

Nothing’s gonna stop us now…

Nothing’s gonna stop us now
Track Name: Lost in your eyes
Like a train that’s coming back home

Like a train that´s been running for too long

I feel it deep

Like Chili Pepper

Tell me what I got you gotta give it to your mamma

I feel yourself real close to me right now

I let you feel real close I can’t deny

I’m burning now

When I see you in the morning I feel like I don’t have worries

I feel fine… when I’m lost in your eyes

Chorus

When I’m lost in your eyes I (can)see it all

Let me dive into your mind

Let me feel this love forever

When I’m lost in your eyes I feel the love

When I’m lost in your eyes

A living dream that’s full of joy and love

I live my dream with you let me say it loud

When the limit is the sky, I keep jumping higher and higher

I need your love

My heart is full of love for you and I want

To share my life with you without a doubt

I feel it deep

Like Chili Pepper

When I see you in the morning I feel like I don’t have worries

I feel fine… when I’m lost in your eyes

Chorus

When I’m lost in your eyes I can see it all

Let me dive into your mind

Let me feel this love forever

When I’m lost in your eyes I feel the love

When I’m lost in your eyes
Track Name: Beyond the sun
Not so long ago

life was easy and fine

with the wind blowing on my back

Tell me if I’m wrong,

tell me why, tell me how

all this darkness came on my way

Look me in the eye,

you can see, I will fight

for the thing’s that will come tomorrow

Now it’s time to find

what I’ve lost on my path

all the things left behind but

the sorrow

I am ready

and I promise that you’ll never see me cry

Just another

I just need another chance and I’ll be back

Chorus

Take my hand now

Take my hand now

’cause there’s a lot to come

a lot to come and I need you around

You gotta hold my hand, let me show you now

show you how

How I will do what it takes to be alright

Trying not to think

’bout the good and the bad

in the end everything’s connected

Searching for an answer

I found to be part

of a question that is unsolved

Look me in the eyes

and you can see I will fight

for the things that will come tomorrow

Now it’s time to find

all I’ve lost on my path

all the things left behind but

the sorrow

I am ready

and I promise that you’ll never see me cry

Just another

I just need another chance and I’ll be back

Chorus

Take my hand now

Take my hand now

’cause there’s a lot to come

a lot to come and I need you around



You gotta hold my hand and let me show you now

show you how

I really need you by my side today

without you I won’t make it happen

You are the light that just keeps me alive

You are the one, you’re the only one

Stay with me forever

No one has given me the things that you do

and I’ll give my whole life to you

I am ready

and I swear that nothing’s gonna stop me now

Baby please me

and together we will go beyond the sun

Chorus

Take my hand now

Take my hand now

’cause there’s a lot to come

a lot to come and I need you around

You gotta hold my hand and let me show you now

show you how
Track Name: And the beat goes on
And the beat goes on

Just like my love everlasting

And the beat goes on

Still moving strong on and on

Do you ever wonder

That to win, somebody’s got to lose

I might as well get over the blues

Just like fishing in the ocean

There’ll always be someone new

Who loves you better

You did me wrong

But I’ve been through stormy weather

Chorus

Don’t stop for nobody

This time I’ll keep my feet on solid ground

But now I understand myself when I’m down

Like the sweet sound of hip music

There’ll always be something new

To keep the tables turning

Hey it’s in the song

But there’ll never be an ending
Track Name: Baby I Want You
By the time we met I wasn’t really thinking

To put another person in my life

I didn’t notice that I was about to change my feelings

A happening (SOMETHING) was going to change my mind

As I ray of light, I saw you on the dance floor

The sweetest thing, I knew you should be mine

I couldn’t wait to start writing our story

Since then you are the one, you’re always on my mind

Chorus

Oh baby I want you

Oh Baby I need you

You’re the only girl that turns me on

Oh baby I want your love

Oh baby I need your love

You’re the only girl that turns me on

Maybe it was those groovy movements of your body

Maybe it was your beautiful green eyes

Maybe it was that sweet smile that sent me out to heaven

Those were the things that caught me out for life

I’ll do my best to make you feel happy

The darkness now is gone, you’re sunny bright

I want to spend my life with you forever

‘Cause darling you are the one, you’re always on my mind

Chorus

When I kiss you all my worries disappear and I feel so fine

I promise to protect you, I’ll be there for you full time

I’ll climb the highest mountain ‘til my hands can touch the sky

I’ll bring a star for you my love is true you can’t deny

‘Cause baby a girl like you is hard to find

Chorus
Track Name: Show me love

Track Name: Let me play
I want to say it’s so difficult for me

I want to say… I’m the one who tells you

I want to say what music makes me feel

And I want you to see how hard it is to ease the pain

I want to say this rhythm moves the earth

I want to say… but no one’s gonna listen

I want to say I’m not copying anyone

And I want you to see what makes you really happy

Chorus

You gonna dance to the rhythm if you let me play baby

And then we’ll be alright

You gonna dance a little more if you pay me well baby

And then we’ll be alright

I want to say it’s so meaningful to me

I want to say… no one really needs you

I want to say I don’t sell my art for free

And I want you to see that I don’t care about your problems

I want to say that we are grooving everyday

I want to say… and someone’s gotta listen

I want to say that we are the real deal

And I want you to see what makes me really happy

Chorus

Don’t want to argue, just let me play tonight

I don’t care about your worries, I don’t want to hear your stories

Respect the music and the people doin’ it right

You need to let me plaaaaaaay

I want to say maybe you don’t want to hear

I want to say… the music’s gonna save us

I want to say you don’t even mean a thing

Track Name: Hit me!
Hit me!

When I wake up in the morning

Hit me!

If you find me fooling ‘round

Hit me!

When the train’s about to hit me

Hit me!

If I don’t groove with my bass line, line, line

And in the moment that you tell me about

(about what..needs something?)

I really promise that I will hit you back

Hit me!

If you find me being lazy

Hit me!

When I start to breathe so fast

Hit me!

If my face is looking crazy

Hit me!

It’s the best way of getting down down down

And in the moment that you tell me about

(same as before)

I really promise that I will hit you back

Chorus

Maybe I’m thinking too much

It takes a little time

I’ll try to make up my mind

And if I’m lucky I will find a world

An inner world to save my heart and my soul

And in the moment that you tell me about

I really promise that I will hit you back
Chorus
Track Name: Karma coming
Let’s go!

Let’s go!

Let’s go!

Let’s go!

1st Verse

You’ve got to believe in your self

‘cause everybody’s got the right to be

just what they wanna be

There’s no need to wait for the chance

You don’t have to be scared of the wind

Because it’s gonna push you to your dreams

It’s what it’s got to be

Don’t look further than today

Chorus

Karma coming

Karma coming

Karma coming

Because you maybe wanna shout

Karma coming

Karma coming

Karma comingDon’t live the future now

2nd Verse

You’ve been giving your heart for the other

There’s a lot of love in what you do

And how you´re doing it

I’m sure you’ll get paid in return

You’ve got to believe in your self

‘cause everybody’s got a chance to be

just what they wanna be

But remember to not look further than today

Come rain or shine

Feel the power

Keep the fight

From darkness to daylight

You’ve being so good

And your life has a meaning

Don’t stop dreaming

Don’t stop dreaming

Baby don’t stop dreaming

3rd Verse

There was a time that I was such a mess

The kind of guy that only thinks of himself

Being drinking and getting high all the time

But it was you who really saved my life

Now I can tell that I’m a different guy

The kind of guy that never lets you down

And I love to be part of your life

And your Karma will take us far
