Lyrics - In the stillness of the night The city forges you a dream Hey hey there little darling Things may not be what they seem We will see how this life unfolds When the morning comes There’s a flower of regret That’s planted somewhere in the soul A picture perfect moment dies I guess we’ll need to improvise There is nowhere else I’d rather be When the morning comes Ooh, when the morning comes I want to be ‘round When the morning comes I will stand by your side When the morning comes As cold as the winter gets There’s still washing to be done When the stench of regrets fade We will see the rising sun That dries the clothes of our imagination When the morning comes I say when the morning comes Ooh, when the morning comes Ooh, when the morning comes I will stand by your side When the morning comes And we’re still one Still one throughout it So let’s be glad Let’s be glad about it When the morning comes When the morning comes I want to be ‘round in your arms I will stand by your side I will stand by your side You know I will stand by your side When the morning comes When the morning comes

Couplet I: Quelque part dans ce globe Je sais qu’Il y a un être assis a un stop de sa vie et qui demande a God: “Que faire?, de la drogue? Prier ou mettre un stop a sa vie?” Que faire quand on n’a pas de potes? Dis moi a qui la faute quand on se retrouve seul sans fric Et sans floques et que l’on a froid? Vers qui se tourner mille fois pour demander de l’aide et mille fois recevoir cette aide? Je ne vois aucun homme de bonne foi Qu’ils soient athées ou hommes de foi. Les gens t’aident une fois puis te dissent au revoir Comme quoi de nos jours personne en qui croire. Pourquoi croire? En qui croire? Je me suis pose ces questions un jour lorsque la pression de cette vie sur moi fit monter la tension. Autour de moi personne ne prêtait attention J’étais souriant mais chantais de tristes chansons J’ai voulu sauter d’un pont. Un ange m’est apparu Et m’a dit soit pas con ! Reflechis avant de faire le bond IL m’a dit pense a tous ces enfants qui un jour proche Auront la chance d’ecouter tes chansons. Refrain : Sometimes things get so hard That tears drop, It’s alright cause so do I But I trust in the Angel on High Couplet 2 : Vanités des vanités, tout est vanité Certains sont riches d’autres sont pauvres C’est la triste réalité Certains sont blancs d’autres sont noirs C’est ce qui fait notre diversité. Certains sont entoures, d’autres seuls assis a assister Mais est ce une raison pour désister ? Se retirer ? Non ! Faut rester ; croire en Dieu Et insister. Pour être décisif faut persister N’hésiter a encaisser pour enfin triompher. Frangine ne baisses pas les bras. Frangin tiens lui les bras Importes ce qui adviendra, sois fort et bien tout ira. It’s alright, It’s alright

We’re kings, we’re free, we’re weak, we’re empty We’re strong, we fail, we trust and deceive, we doubt and we believe We are, We are, We are, All the same We are, We are, We are, Woh . . . We’re wrong, we’re fools, we’re wise, we’re beautiful We’re fake, we hate, we’re cruel and we’re kind, we give up and some of us find We all look for love it never changes ,some look above_____ And no matter what one of us may believe We’re all searching for a love that never leaves We are We are We are all the same _________ But we all have different eyes And we see through different lives We’re saved, we’re damned, we hope, we can understand We’re loved, we kill, we give and we need we break down and some of us achieve We all look for love it never changes, some look above____ And no matter what one of us may believe We’re all searching for a love that never leaves We are We are We are all the same _________

I can be brave when you’re frightened Slay all your dragons for you I can be strong when you’re weary Long as you need me to I’ll shoulder your burden when it’s heavy Whenever the world gets too crazy You know I can shelter you Let me count the ways let me count the ways when you add them together got to be a hundred and one ways I can love you better I can be less complicated More sympathetic to you I’ll take your side in the fray hide you when the world is cruel I can be patient when you struggle Be there to listen when you’re troubled I can stand watch for you Let me count the ways let me count the ways when you add them together got to be a hundred and one ways I can love you better Every single day finds a new way And I’ll keep looking forever got to be hundred and one ways I can love you Better than before better than I’ve been lately I wanna love you more and for all the times your love has saved me I’m so grateful for you Let me count the ways let me count the ways when you add them together got to be a hundred and one ways I can love you better Every single day finds a new way And I’ll keep looking forever got to be hundred and one ways I can love you better

One heart is all I’ve got to give One life is all I've left to live One dream is all I’m left with One plan to make it all okay One way to shove it all away One fall is all it takes to fail So help me God Humanity Is all that's left in me I've nothing left to lose So help me be Honestly More than I know how to be More than my humanity One slip is all it takes to live One kiss is all it takes to die One step away for you and I So help me God Humanity Is all that's left in me I've nothing left to lose So help me be Honestly More than I know how to be More than my humanity One heart one life one dream One plan one way one fall Is all it takes so Help me God Humanity Is all that's left in me I've nothing left to lose So help me be Honestly More than I know how to be More than my humanity

Despite my efforts to bring You praise I always find myself back here in this place God please forgive me this one last sin And You always meet me and remind me Again and again There is hope We are not at the end of the race We can start over again Because of my grace You have been forgiven my friend

You can be a righteous rocker, you can be a holy roller You could be most anything, You could be a Leon Russell, or a super muscle, You could be a corporate king, You could be a wealthy man from Texas, or a witch with heavy hexes, But without love, you ain't nothing without love Without love you ain't nothing, without love. You could be a brilliant surgeon, or a sweet young virgin, or a harlot out to sell, You could learn to play the blues, or be Howard Hughes or the scarlot pimpernell, Or you could be a French provincial midwife, or go from door to door with a death-knife, But without love you ain't nothing, without love, Without love you ain't nothing, without love. You could be a woman feeler, or a baby stealer, you could drink your life away, Or you could be a holy prophet, get a blessing off it, Or you could fast for fifty days, You could shake hands with the devil, or give your life to God on the level, But without love you ain't nothing, without love, Without love you ain't nothing, without love.

One Painted figure under the moonlight, Murmuring starlight One quiet people, sharing the sunlight, Their eyes are like darts through my heart And the silence hurts That silence words I had a secret, a secret that no one could ever know It tore me to pieces, pieces that I could never sow I was a black silhouette on an orange sky Waiting for the covers of a sleeping night, to find you Oh, I come out to meet you, but you know, you know And I tell that I need you, but you know, you know Now don’t ask me questions cause I don’t have answers, or truth telling cards Maybe I’d have some if I wasn’t a pile of half broken shards Singing ooohhh Oh, I come out to meet you, but you know, you know And I tell that I need you, but you know, you know And I care so much about you, you know, you know And I cannot live without you, you know, you know Oh, I come out to meet you, but you know, you know And I tell that I need you, but you know, you know And I care so much about you, you know, you know And I cannot live without you, you know, you know One Painted figure under the moonlight, Murmuring starlight

And I’ll Run to your side tonight I’ll Run Just to catch your fall I’ll Run Just to Hold your hand. So maybe you’ll understand my love Look to me I will set you free Speak my name you never be the same Take my hand I will bring you to the promise land . And I’ll Run to your side tonight I’ll Run Just to catch your fall I’ll Run Just to Hold your hand. So maybe you’ll understand my love.

There's gonna be peace and love in this world someday As soon as each nation makes what it consumes As soon as our housemates learn to tidy their rooms There's gonna be peace and love in this world someday When everybody knows what's going through my head And everybody knows that I didn't mean what I said When all of our women and men stop hurting each other And the child at home can trust his(her) father and his(her) mother There's gonna be peace and love in this world someday As soon as our footballers learn to hold their tongues As soon as we learn how to make right from two wrongs There's gonna be peace and love in this world someday As soon as you all understand my point of view And I don't mind somebody telling me what to do Peace and love from me Peace and love to you Peace and love to everyone Someday it might come true

Would you stay here one more night? I beg you do not abandon me Show me the same face light the candle Let me hear the same voice stay here Everyone knows – I love you Don’t cover your love -- let it be seen Please don’t leave me—sustain my life X2 Chorus So who said that? You should make me cry I once was your prince My life gave you wine Now you don’t know me You took everything So who will love me And stay here with me Don’t change my name-- call me the same Don’t look at me like-- you don’t know me I want you right here-- be patient Let me see your passion—stay with me I want your love friend—forever Everlasting life-- stay with me Please don’t leave me—sustain my lifeX2 Chorus… No no no no no no no no Bridge Tell me who confused your feelings Tell me who stole your lovely smile No no no no Please don’t leave sustain my life

The world is trying to get it together Trying to help their fellow man Hoping we can make it better Do you really think we can You go to school to find the answers And graduate finding there are none In our youth we fight all kinds of battles But in the end we've never won The history books are all against us Destruction is upon us, still To change, you'll have to find a way To make a river run uphill The people who are optimistic Are really way behind the times The geniuses are all sadistic Just eat and drink and wait to die American Pie Whiskey and rye But something many have forgotten There's more than merely meets the eye A quiet kind of revolution Is coming down on us from the sky You can't read about it in your textbook You can't hear it on your TV screen But just the same it's all around us And what's more it's always been So if you want to know about it There's one book you really ought to read And take a walk in a virgin forest And let the maker let you see The kingdom of God He who has ears let him hear The kingdom of God He who has eyes let him see The kingdom of God Matthew's blues gonna show the news to you Matthew's blues gonna show the news to you

When I’m asleep I remember things That my eyes have never seen I find myself stumbling into memories that don’t belong to me My mom handed me some stuff that her mom handed her Eve passed down a thousand blessings And that Blessed Curse ... .. You know that I will long for you forever Cause my heart remembers seeing things That my eyes could swear they never saw I will long for you forever Cause my heart’s recalling images That my eyes could swear they never saw… ... .. Didn’t we walk hand in hand in a garden on a sunny day? I’m sure the sun never hid her pretty face When things were that way Oh just a billion years ago OR SO (foundational, some would say) But who really knows the number of the days in this case? Irrelevant, in this case. Irrelevant. In this case I’d say what matters here most Is that you and I were once close Naked Unashamed we went Did we even know what hiding meant? ... .. I tell you a tree never took so much from me And fruit never hurt me since But maybe a man can never understand love Until he knows (and hates) Distance ... .. But now the sun hides her pretty face from me And I tend to hide mine from you And every son learns instinctively to hide his little eyes too This is how things have changed! Innocence discovered shame. ... .. Eve passed down a thousand blessings And that Blessed Curse

i had a time in the fame light i was running round never sure of the reasons they let me in now i'm drinking my coffee putting pen to pad exploring the memories of an aging past drenched in clothing and tabloids drenched in perfume and wine royal roads to award shows of a different kind deviled stares from the angels fallen messengers sailing the tails of a fallen age no one saw past proscenium no one saw in my eyes the quiet desperation of a lonesome child i am filling these pages with tales such as these should it burn or should we learn what stories do we need beyond the glow of a gilded town there are stories of life the only lenses, the eyes of a newborn child let us fill them with wisdom let us fill them with love let us be as the one who was touched by the dove tarry not in the graveyard tarry not in the grave arise from the fetters we don't work for a wage oh the work here is plenty and the laborers are few let us sweat from our souls like the air sweats the dew

It’s all around you You just can’t believe it You ought to take more time; If you could receive it It’s all around you You should see it’s not your fault; It’s easier to wait for breakdowns, But lift your head now ‘Cause it’s all around you It’s all around you Yes, it’s all around you From before time began And after we’re gone It’s all around you And it’s all around you And it’s all around you It’s all around you...

about

The situation in Libya is becoming increasingly unstable as the conflict rages on. Forgotten in the headlines and political rhetoric are the thousands of people who are innocent victims of the war. The Humanitarian International Services Group is committed to serving the needs of these people who are caught in a terrifying crossfire.

HISG has an opportunity to purchase 30 metric tons (66,000 lbs) of flour in Egypt and transport the flour over the border into Libya to supply local bakeries. By empowering the local bakers instead of simply handing out loaves of bread, HISG is allowing the local businesses to lead the way in a very turbulent time. Also, producing the bread locally bread will rebuild the citizens' confidence in their community, in addition to alleviating a looming food shortage.

This is short term solution that is sustainable for the long-term recovery of the nation.

Estimated cost: $30k (US)

HISG is about connecting resources to needs.

All proceeds from the downloads of this album will go directly to HISG and their work in Libya.

HISG does this work on less than 10% admin costs.
