Track Name: Sing to remember
Troubles, troubles everywhere
Worries, you know that I’ve got my share
Wish that I, could brush them all away, just like
a-Brushing off the snowflakes from my sleeve

Music, you know there’s music everywhere
People, won’t you tell me do you care?
This song, is older than the oldest living
Trees, sweeter than the summer breeze

I’m gonna sing to remember, sing to forget
Sing for all of my happiness
And not my regrets, I’m gonna
Sing a a song of courage, oh-oh
Not a song of fear
I’m gonna sing my vision of the new creation,
Won’t you tell me do you wanna hear?

Changes, are on there way
There’s no choice, between tomorrow and today,
So I say accept what you cannot change
Change what you can’t accept, for
Yours my friend is the only life, whose
Course you can set
Track Name: I don't know how to dance afro-salsa
You, yes you who are standing over
There, you come from I know not
Where but I know that sometimes you
Just wanna move, you just wanna lose your
Self in the music and feel like your walking on
Yes I
Know, I know that sometimes it is
Hard, to leave behind all of your
Worries, to
Shake off the cares of the day, Oh
People won’t you hear what I’m sayin, you got to
Lay down your burden and

Dance for me
Come a little closer and dance for me
get up out of your chairs and dance for me
I want you to show me your way
Oh baby won't you show me the way

Oh, we are birds of a feather
…we are flockin' together
Oh, we are birds of a feather
Come on baby spread your feathers
Won’t come a little closer and show me your moves
Don’t you know I love it when you break the rules
Don’t you know baby when you shake your tail
It’s makes me wanna give mine a shake as well
….oh baby Spread your feathers
….oh baby Shake your tail
Come on People we are flockin’ together
You’re a
Blowing your whistle, I’m a ringin my bell
…Come on Come on baby
Dance for me
Track Name: A love song (live)
I don’t want to be your master, I don’t want to be your slave
I just want to wander the world with you 'til our ashes are scattered into the waves

Sometimes I wake up in the morning, I feel like blowing my horn
But then when the chill of the evening comes I’ll be back in our kitchen, keeping you warm

The minutes may seem like hours, the hours they may seem like days
And someone may tell us we cannot go on, but I give you my word dear, we’ll find a way

The brooks run into the ocean, the ocean run into the sea
Someday when the flowers are blooming still, we’ll lay ourselves down on a pallet of leaves
