For he that knows not love knows not of God

These are the times to change your ways
Just looking at the signs these are the last days
It will bring stone and fire so don’t you go under.
Let stay together like birds of one feature

Rap

I no go vex you, you no go vex me
Fly like birds on one assembly
You cook Jollof rice and I’ll fry the Plaintain.
Thank you God for giving us another day
Strive to help each other fulfill our destiny
Peace, love happiness and unity
Are all the ingredients we need to live

Together here on earth
Live together in love
Live together in one home
Live together as one….

Can I call you sometime
But then again I’m a lady
I don’t want to break the rules
Need advice on what to do

Call him tell him that you would like to take him out

It doesn’t matter you’re only trying to help God out
I don’t know about that what if he’s not the right one

For me

Gosh, he’s so fine and he loves the Lord
Strong, intelligent and all
I’m so tempted just to call
Heavenly father, Help me with my feelings.
I don’t want to mess things
Want to be available for the right you’ve chosen for me

Middle:
Maybe he’s shy or has another bride on his mind
Maybe he needs some time to figure out what he need.
Give him his space and be a good friend to him.
It will all work out if it’s mean’t to be the right man in waiting

Chorus:
For me
He’s go everything under control
For me
All I need to do is pray
For me Ask God if it’s meant to be
For me
And understand that he’s go the right man is waiting for me

Intro
Colours of life
Colours of time
Floating around
Racing my mind

Verse 1
Mending Broken Homes
Sleeping over stones
Trying hard to find
Some peace of mind
Crying in your sleep
Cause your need a drink
Rolling high and low just to make some dough
Oh Why, fight the thoughts that go by
Why oh why, fear the arrow by night
Stay oh stay, calm and relaxed
Celebrate life in a whole new way

Chorus:
Colours of life
Colours of time
Floating around
Racing my mind

Verse 2:
Breaking glass and sticks
Gathering your click
It is time to fly
Bring the song so high
White over gray
Sunshine and rain
100 bucks to impress with so much stress
Oh why, fight the thoughts that go by
Why oh why, fear the arrow by night
Stay oh stay, calm and relaxed
Celebrate life in a whole new way

Bridge:
When you look into the sky
You will see the beauty of the light
Trust that God will not let you
Hide away, Hide away

I wanna marry you
Raise kids live life build a fam with you
That I swear I’ll do
I want you to know that from the bottom of my heart
I’ll ride till the end with you

I wanna put a ring on you

Verse 1

God brought us together forever
