Planet Earth

Imagine holding Planet Earth in the palm of your hand
With no regard for your place of birth or claim to any land
The only thing between us now is the truth we understand
If Planet Earth was in the palm of your hand

50 years from now what will they say about us here?
Did we care for the water and the fragile atmosphere?
There are only two kinds of folk and the difference they make
The ones that give and the ones that take

Just like the countless bodies that revolve around the sun
Planet Earth must now come into balance with the one
That caused it all to be and then we'll see His kingdom come
So shall it be written, shall be sung

Imagine you could rid the Earth of anyone you choose
Which ones would you need the most and which ones would you lose?
Do we wanna judge another lest we be judged too?
Careful now, the next one might be you, yeah

Just like the countless bodies that revolve around the sun
Planet Earth must now come into balance with the one
That caused it all to be and then we'll see His kingdom come
So shall it be written, shall be sung

Imagine sending your first born off to fight a war
With no good reason how it started and what they're fighting for
And if they're blessed to make it home, will they still be poor?
Pray for peace right now and forever more

Just like the countless bodies that revolve around the sun
Planet Earth must now come into balance with the one
That caused it all to be and then we'll see His kingdom come
So shall it be written, shall be sung

Just like the countless bodies that revolve around the sun
Planet Earth must now come into balance with the one
That caused it all to be and then we'll see His kingdom come
So shall it be written, shall be sung, shall be sung

So shall it be written, so shall it be sung

Guitar

Gettin' dirty at the club again
Usually around your waist like a chain, but then
I got that call, so I jumped in my car
I love you baby but not like I love my guitar
Not like I love my guitar, no

You couldn't do it all by yourself
You had to go and get somebody else
You're high enough to call me but you can't reach the bar
I love you baby but not like I love my guitar, no
Not like I love my guitar, oh yes, turn it up

I tried to warn you that it's hard to be a star
Especially when you're drivin' other people's car
Would have gave you mine girl but you took it too far
I love you baby but just not like I love my guitar
Not like I love my guitar

I know you love me and you want to be friends
And if you don't, at least you need to pretend
We're still together even if we don't get that far
I love you baby but not like I love this guitar
I love you baby, I love you baby like I love my guitar

I love you lady and I'm wishing you well
I'll write a letter when I learn how to spell
Until that day you can go to
I love you baby, you know the rest

Somewhere Here on Earth

I know you're out there
I can feel your eyes on me
Seen that face a thousand times
If only in my dreams

I know you really want me
I can feel your hands on me
I really wanna touch you too
In a way I'm much too shy to speak

And even though I'm all alone
For what it's worth
You're somewhere here on earth
And I like it

I know you're out there
I can feel you getting closer to me
Now I'm just wondering what you're waiting for
You know I am free

In this digital age, you could just page me
I know it's a rage, but it just don't engage me
Like the face to face
Do you want to do this at yours or my place?

It's been so long since I been with somebody
Like a million years
Now you're here on earth
You're here, you're here

Somewhere here on earth
I like it, I like it
Listen

I know you hear me
Like a whisper in your ear
You don't have to fear me
You're everything I hold so dear

I know you already love me
You're probably just too cool to say
Somebody somewhere put you down
But that's okay, that's okay

'Cuz whenever you feel
It's time to heal, no, no more
As long as I'm here on earth

The One U Wanna C

I know I ain't the first to tell ya
I sho' bet I won't be the last
I know you're in a hurry, baby
So let me make this fast

I got a lotta money
I don't wanna spend it on me
I like pretty thangs
You're just as pretty as you can be

So if you ain't busy later
And you want some company
I ain't tryin' to be a hater but I'm the one
I'm the one, the one u wanna c, u wanna c

You see, look around you, baby
You know you've seen it all before
Every nickel in this club lookin' for a dime
Nothin' less, nothin' more

Too tall to be talked down to
Too over it to be put under
Any spell a blind fisherman could cast
That's why I come like thunder to tell you

I got a lotta money
But I don't wanna spend it on me
I like pretty thangs
And you're just as pretty as you can be

So if you ain't busy later
And you want some company
I ain't tryin' to be a hater but I'm the one
I'm the one, the one u wanna c, u wanna c

You don't need to fix your hair
For somebody you don't care for
You don't need to shave your legs
If it ain't me that's knockin' at your door

I know you ain't no concubine
I know you ain't a one night stand
I don't wanna waste your time
If you wanna get creamy

I'm the one u wanna c
The one u wanna c, baby
Oh, the one u wanna c
Wanna c, baby please

I'm the one u wanna c
The one u wanna c
I'm the one u wanna c
The one u wanna

I'm the one u wanna c
The one u wanna c
I'm the one u wanna c
I'm the one u wanna

I'm the one u wanna c
I'm the one u wanna c
I'm the one u wanna c
I'm the one u wanna

Future Baby Mama

Future baby mama

I've heard it said my lovers look alike
Could it be that I was looking for you?
They were cool but something wasn't right
They had me fooled for a minute and then I saw the truth

None of them got what it takes to be a future baby mama
Gotta bend in the wind but don't break to keep your man
Show me one of them and I'll make her mine with no more drama
Future baby mama

I've heard it said that I won't treat you right
But they ain't sure 'cos they don't know nothing about you
You're too secure to ever want to fuss and fight
That's why your man never ever got a reason to doubt you

None of them got what it takes to be a future baby mama
Bend in the wind but don't break to keep your man
Show me one of them and I'll make her mine, no more drama
Future baby mama

Yeah, I know you might be fine but I've seen it all before
Cinderella was a waste of time and oops, she's out the door
To build a house together, the thing that matters more
Is under the floor, a strong foundation that last forever more

I'm gon' to make you happy, baby, happier than happy itself
You know what? If you'll ever need a hand, call me, I'll help
'Cos I got you, anywhere you wanna go
Paris, London, Africa, San Lucas, Mexico, you see

I know what you want, what every good woman wants
A man so in love with you, he can't help but to flaunt you
Deep down, I know what you want
You want your girlfriends to hate you 'cos they can't get your man

None of them got what it takes to be a future baby mama
Gotta bend in the wind but don't break to keep your man
Show me one of them and I'll make her mine, no more drama
Future baby mama, future baby mama, future baby mama

Mr Goodnight

Mister, mister
Love you, mister
Come on

Call Mr. Goodnight, he'll make you feel alright
Make you throw your head back and holla, he's so nice, so nice
Better not tell your girlfriend, you can try with all your might
Just can't keep a secret 'bout Goodnight, Goodnight

Hey baby, sittin' all alone in my courtyard
Lookin' as if you have every right
All over the world, they call me Prince
But you can call me Mr. Goodnight

Surely the dandies that escort you places
Imparted a rumor or two
About the parade of lovely faces
That follow me, surely they do

What say you to that with lips so invitin'
It's all I can do not to stare
What say you to them, past, present and future
That you don't care

If so, you'll be the first and I'll give you the keys
To the whip of your dreams, alright?
All over the world, they call me Prince
But you can call me Mr. Goodnight

Call Mr. Goodnight, he'll make you feel alright
Make you throw your head back and holla, he's so nice, so nice
Better not tell your girlfriend, you can try with all your might
Just can't keep a secret 'bout Goodnight, Goodnight

Now I don't wanna put to you to sleep with a bunch of chatter
And a rap that really don't matter
But now that you know who I am, you need to make plans
And all your other pennies should scatter

A limousine about to pick you up
And then take you to a private jet too fine
And then you gonna meet a little Spanish man
Who will offer you wine and Moet

In an hour or two, you'll be taken to a suite
That will rock all your wildest dreams
And on the bed, three dresses to choose one, pick one
Then you get a call from me

Tell me which dress you chose
So I can put on, put on my matchin' suit
All the real guys, throw your hands up
You know how Mr. Goodnight do

Call Mr. Goodnight, he'll make you feel alright
Make you throw your head back and holla, he's so nice, so nice
Better not tell your girlfriend, you can try with all your might
Just can't keep a secret 'bout Goodnight, Goodnight

I love you, baby, I don't want nobody else
Call Mr. Goodnight, call Mr. Goodnight

Mike Philly in the band, got jams at midnight
Before the main attraction you'll see
Slow it down, somewhere here on earth
Just to check how your reaction be

And if your heartbeat goes up a notch or two
There ain't no tellin' what I might do
I got a mind full of good intentions
And a mouth full of raisenets

We can watch 'Chocolat' on the big screen
Before we convene in the pool
The waterfall'll wash your cares away
Already I love you, I do

Call Mr. Goodnight, he'll make you feel alright
Make you throw your head back and holla, he's so nice, so nice
Better not tell your girlfriend, you can try with all your might
Just can't keep a secret 'bout Goodnight, Goodnight

The energy in this field's been known to flicker lights, aight?
A symphony with no rest, acapella moans
And a bridge of sighs, ooh, different night
Undeterred nevertheless, a masterpiece on butterscotch thighs
Turn off the lights, turn off the lights, it's time for Mr. Goodnight

All the Midnights in the World

Because I turned my eye toward you
Because I seek your hand
Every other woman envies you
And me, every other man

A massive circle of jealousy
Is coming round again
Those prickly fingered scallywags
That masquerade as friends

Make a promise this very night
That they will no longer pose
A threat to either one of us
Then let the chapter close

For all the midnights in the world
This one will serve us better
If you choose to be my girl

Like Zuzu's petals, a wonderful life
The two of us shall lead
The children of the future've all the
Spiritual food they need

The secrets that the ones before
With grace, they've come and shown
Together with love for one another
We shall make them known

Remember the love of happy days
I number the grains of sand
Writing twelve times ever more
If I could be your man

Amethyst and rubies
Crystals and black pearls
I'd trade them all just to spend with you
All the midnights in the world
All the midnights in the world

Chelsea Rodgers

A model, used to be a role model
I dunno, come on, Chelsea, I dunno, come on
Go ahead now, Chelsea, go ahead now
This for Jersey right here, go ahead now

Chelsea Rodgers was a model
But she really rocked and rolled
Kept her tears up in a bottle
She poured them out to save her soul

Ask her what she liked the most
She said she liked to talk to Jimi's ghost
Fantasy, a bragger's boast
Chelsea's fly like coast to coast

Hollywood or Times Square
If the party's fly, my girl is there
Earth boots on and flowers in her hair
21st Century hippie, Chelsea don't care

Chelsea Rodgers was a model
But she really rocked and rolled
She kept her tears up in a bottle
Poured them out to save her soul

Try to catch her if you can
But you never see her with one man
'Cause they must be baptized according to the master plan
Before she give up the good thang, go 'head Chelsea

No blood diamonds or designer chic
'Cause she's too original from her head down to her feet
You can hate if you want to, Chelsea don't eat no meat
Still got butt like a letter C, go 'head Chelsea

Chelsea Rodgers was a model
But she really rocked and rolled
She kept her tears up in a bottle
Poured them out to save her soul

Come on, Chelsea
Come on

Next to her, they just a fool
Chelsea read more books than a few
Like Moses was a Pharaoh in the 18th Dynasty
And Rome was chilling in Carthage in 33 BCE

And the day that we stop counting
We live as long as a tree
Go ahead Chelsea, teach me
Go ahead Chelsea

Make a promise to your higher self
Get true knowledge then fame and wealth
Then you don't be chasing nobody's ghost
Of everything make the most, come on

Chelsea Rodgers was a model
But she really rocked and rolled
She kept her tears up in a bottle
Poured them out to save her soul

Chelsea Rodgers was a model
But she really rocked and rolled
Kept her tears up in a bottle
Poured them out to save her soul

Come on Chelsea
Keep that body moving
Come on Chelsea
Make that body move

Come on Chelsea
Keep that body moving
Come on Chelsea
Make that body move

Shake it like a Juicy Juice
Shake it like a Juicy Juice
Shake it like a Juicy Juice
Shake it like a Juicy Juice

Chelsea Rodgers was a model
But she really rocked and rolled
Kept her tears up in a bottle
Poured them out to save her soul

Chelsea Rodgers was a model
Poured them out to save her soul

Lion of Judah

Sitting on the floor of an all white room
Feeling like the color blue
Thinking about the words that I can use
To get this through to you

A million mistakes and then some
I've made with the one's before
I've probably passed my expiration date
But still I adore you, adore you

Looking for the energy to take you there
The places that you wanna go
Knowing if I do, you're fully aware
The press will turn it into a show

Everyone expecting this outcome
Still they jump for all the clues
I guess I should be happy but I'm still not sure
That you really love me
Love me, love me, love me, you love me

Like the lion of Judah
I'll strike my enemies down
As my God is living
Surely the trumpet will sound

There was one who would stand by my side
Through the the good and the bad
Let that one stand with pride
The best that I've ever had
Like the lion of Judah

Driving away with a smile on my face
Wind blowing through my hair
Wondering how you'll feel when you find out
How much I really care

Hoping that the tears roll down your face
Your body grasp who we are, who are we?
Two gypsy beggars who only
By Vegas came to be a star
A super star, a star, that's what we are

Like the lion of Judah
I'll strike my enemies down
As my God is living
Surely the trumpet will sound

Lion
Judah
Lion
Judah

Like the lion of Judah
I'll strike my enemies down
Like the lion of Judah
Surely the trumpet will sound

Hear the trumpet sound
Lion, Judah
Lion of Judah
Lion of Judah

Resolution

Come with it

The main problem with war
Is that nobody ever wins
The next generation grows up
And learns how to do it all over again

No matter who started the argument
Just matters how each one ends
How many people really want resolution?

The main problem with people
Is they never do what they say
One minute they want peace
Then do everything to make it go away

Dropping bombs on each other
In the act of saving face
Tell me now, people, how is that resolution?

Either you do or you don't
Either you will or you won't
Making amends is a difficult pill to swallow

What can we lose if we try?
With no water, a flower dies
With love in the lead, resolution will follow

Oh yes, it will
Resolution
Oh yeah

Love is like a circle
No beginning and no end
A broken heart will mend
If you love it like your best friend

Handle your heart with care
It's as delicate as a whim
When the storms come again
Pray for resolution

Either you will or you won't
Either you do or you don't
Will you want resolution?

Either you will or you won't
Come on everybody
All over the world
All over the world
Tell me, how many people really want resolution?
