Track Name: Jekoro
Far away I see a place for dreaming
And it seems it may be for you and for me
Nobody cares about tomorrow
No more tears or sorrow
See this life that I'm living
People shouting people giving

Jekoro
Go man-man
x16

Distant lands by the sea
People moving care free
See this life that they're living
People shouting people giving
Nobody cares about tomorrow
No more tears or sorrow
See this life that he'sm living
People shouting people giving

Jekoro
Go man-man
x16
Track Name: Idanwo
Idanwo
Our love is shining through
Idanwo
I love the way you groove
Captivated
You have me in your hands
Idanwo
Idanwo
You have me at your command,
Idanwo
And you let me sing

One more time everybody's singing
Idanwo________

Idanwo
You're always in my thoughts

Idanwo
Your moves have gotten me lost

Captivated
You have me in your hands

Idanwo
You have me at your command
Idanwo
And you let me sing

One more time everybody's singing
Track Name: Benskin
I long for the day
my color, my kind
my gender my race
won’t trouble your mind

I question it all
The hatred of man
To judge and to fall
Where it all began

They’re different than you
Their faces, their skin
The things that they do
And teach to their kin

She’s strong and she’s proud
Ascending to mountain tops she reigns
He puts her in shrouds
To stifle his pain

Justice,
Mankind
Freedom
All relies on you

You and me and
The power
To stand up for

Our own
Difference
Harness
Our love for equality

The children will starve
The parents will cry
Their spirits at sky
The tears in their eyes

I long for the day
my color, my kind
my gender my race
won’t trouble your mind
Track Name: The Pearl
a.ma.na.gy.O so me da ni we so
ga.na.di.so.dje so me da ni we we lo

a.ma.na.gy.A so me da ye LA so
ga.na.di.so.dje so me da ni we lo ni re

Ignoring all this time where her love had been, It's
Splendor and display where I hindered my heart.

The pillars of that world like a fading screen fell
when the light she spreads entered into my eyes

Let those who are in search for their star live with joy and pride.
The pearl has shifted a life aside . Out of emptiness.

Let those who are in search for their star live with joy and pride.
The pearl has shifted a life aside . Out of emptiness.

a.ma.na.gy.O so me da ni we so
ga.na.di.so.dje so me da ni we we lo

a.ma.na.gy.A so me da ye LA so
ga.na.di.so.dje so me da ni we lo ni re
Track Name: Tashikere
[Tashikere x5] x4

There was a King
Lord of the deserts and the seas
Ruled over treasures men and spring
With only one heart to please

Tashikere Tashikere Tashikere

Ta-shi-ke-re___
Her soul was pure as dreams of flying
The heir of a buried paradise
Princess of endless smiles

At night she used to pray:

Sarah:
“Oh I wish that I could see the world
From above embrace what no one heard
Oh I wish I was a timeless bird
But it's just a dream____”

[Tashikere x5] x4

4 bars instrumental

And then one day
Tashikere was gone and lost to sight
The King searched the deserts through the night
Crying her name away______ .

Tashikere Tashikere Tashikere

Ta-shi-ke-re___

Imploring spirits where she stood
He learned she was captured by the moon
Taken away for life

At night He used to pray:
“Oh I wish that I could see the world
From above embrace what no one heard
Oh I wish I was a timeless bird
But it's just a dream____”
Track Name: Houb Ouna
Don't escape my arms
Your love is here
Buried in my soul
Forever still
Trust in faith in me
Our love is now
I will live for you
This is my vow
