Track Name: Groove it While it's Happening
How do you feel, if you don’t like your situation
How do you know what adds your frustration
I got a feeling things could be much better
You got no feeling, life don’t get together
Reach into your pocket, ’cause I got nothin for ya
Give something to me, something that you cannot see
good is bad, bad is nice; take some free advice from me
If you want to feel it in your soul, reach on out and touch it

Groove it while it’s happening
Let the rhythm take control
Groove it while it’s happening
Let your body touch my soul

Day to day, the righteous got no feeling
Week to week, hour to hour, got no power, you can be so willing
You are the freak, pull it down onto you
It’s almost over, can’t get nothing for two
I hope you’re willing, to let someone else come through
We can get the party, if what you say is true
I got the news, I got the shit; you got to come and dig with it
If you want to feel it in your soul, reach on out and touch it

Groove it while it’s happening
Let the rhythm take control
Groove it while it’s happening
Let your body touch my soul
Track Name: #PowerLoveFreedom (feat. Mike Wird)
I thought I was alone, I couldn’t see in front of me
You showed me a way I could be with family
Only a fool could deny We have a vision and not a lie
Holding hands, making love shoulder to shoulder, we live as one

We’ve got Power
Love
Freedom
Everyone
We’ve got Power
Love
Freedom
Understand

Come on, come quick
Get yourself into your trip
Stand strong, be love
Face it together, unite as one
Fight the power, free the heart
Someone next to you; it’s where you start
Shame the feckless who will not see
Take off the blinders; you will be free

We’ve got Power
Love
Freedom
Everyone
We’ve got Power
Love
Freedom
Understand
Track Name: I Can't Party (Like I Got No Job No More)
When I’m out, I look for things that please me.
My flesh is tired but my spirit’s willing.
You got to know I’m well past 22.
That don’t mean I forgot just what to do.

I got some love on my brain
If you allow me to explain
We’ve got to drink more champagne.
I can’t party like I got no job no more.

When I see you, I shake in every way
You cause me trouble each and every day
You move it round and round all over town
When you push up I think I’m gonna drown.

I got some love on my brain
If you allow me to explain
We’ve got to drink more champagne.
I can’t party like I got no job no more.
Track Name: Sing Your Song to Me
Sing to me, sing to me, sing to me…

Hello, my friend;
Can you help my brother?
Reach out to the helpless;
Sing your song to me.
Hello, my sister;
What can I do for you?
Time can pass so quickly;
Sing your song to me.

The noise of the world
Just won’t stop coming.
We have to stand for a day
When everyone is truly free.
Free to live our lives as was intended.
To live as who we truly are.
Sing your song to me.
Don’t ignore what hurts your sister.
Stop to lend a helping hand;
Sing your song to me.

I am my brother’s keeper
When he needs someone to care
Sing your song to me.

I have to sing this song
For all who won’t listen.
I have a dream for all
Who won’t truly see.
The world is much a less a place without them.
Whoever they may be.
Sing your song to me.

Sing to me, sing to me, sing to me…
Track Name: She Taught Us
Stand up for your conscience
Stand up to your fears
Pull up from the tide
Standing for your pride
Don’t need what I ain’t got
And I won’t take it from you
But I’m gonna get what they got
Then I’m gonna give it to you.

Every day, in every way
It is our duty to fight for freedom
Do not let them take your pride
It is our duty to fight and win
There is no place you can hide
It is our duty to love each other
You may think it’s an impossibility
Nothing to lose but our chains.

When is enough, enough?
When is too much, too much?
What can a dollar buy?
How can a dollar lie?
Celebrate your freedom;
Don’t give it away.
When they say they want it;
You gotta fight them on that day.

Every day, in every way
It is our duty to fight for freedom
Do not let them take your pride
It is our duty to fight and win
There is no place you can hide
It is our duty to love each other
You may think it’s an impossibility
Nothing to lose but our chains.
Track Name: Stay With Me Until We're Done
Every time I understand the words you're speaking
Til I see another sign it's broken, it's moving.
Breathing space, face to face
You and I we get so high
To me life can be very true
Me and you
Won't you just...

Stay with me until we're done,
The night time is over.
Can't you just stay with me until we're done,
The nighttime is over.

Morning is here
I look, I see.
It's so special having you here
It's peaceful.
You're my heart; I can tell
It's real; it's hope.
I can smile
I can smile to myself
I'm grateful; I'm free
Won't you just...

Stay with me until we're done,
The night time is over.
Can't you just stay with me until we're done,
The nighttime is over.
Track Name: Make it Grow Reprise (feat. Mike Wird)
Something is coming 'round the corner
Can you feel it? It's coming without warning
I get it: things are tough all over
When it gets here, do you run for cover?
Love is everywhere.

Love is everywhere
Just how do I know?
I can see it in you
Baby, you make it grow

Stop living your lives in fear
Open your heart to the people who are near
Life's a gift; don't you know that much is true?
Give it away, and it all comes back to you
Can you feel it?

Love is everywhere
Just how do I know?
I can see it in you
Baby, you make it grow
Track Name: Midnight (feat. Mike Wird)
Daylight
Night bright
Earth will lead you home
Heart light
Midnight
I will leave alone
Words can bring us
All the life we need
Living, laughing
Give what we receive
Track Name: Star Funk
People can you tell me if you like your funk real
We can see you out movin' and know just how you feel
There's no shame to my game when when I start to funk with you
when you touch your body I can start to funk for two

I can see your light flash on the big dance floor
You got a real thing and I want to see some more
We gonna funk, we gonna funk, we gonna funk it all night long
When the bass starts to thumpin we can get into your song

Star funk, we're gonna funk up to the sky
It feels so real 'cause we're funkin' up so high
Star funk, it's just plain to see
We're funking in the air and we are funkin' to be free

People can I tell you how I start to feel good
When I see you out dancin and groovin like you should
Don't sit down when the bass gets in the groove
Get off your butt into the stuff that can make your body move

Grind it, move it, sock it to it, have yourself some fun
Come on over baby cause it ain't no fun with one
We gonna groove, we gonna groove, we gonna groove it all night long
When the bass starts to thumpin' we can get into your song
