Let It Play 04:37
Feel it! It’s an explosion And every time you hear it You’ve got to follow your emotions Groovin! Put a smile on your face You gotta keep on moving Anytime, anyplace Dancin’! You will see though it The wheels are turning Come on come on just do it Oh let it play, hear the music inside your head For yesterday will never come back Fly and you’ll find it’s alright Just let yourself be free Tonight Higher and out of sight And your troubles will melt away You gotta try Alright! Hear what I’m saying All the love you’re missing Yeah it’s right within just waiting Sometimes You just got to let it go Come on forget about it Better just to be alone It’s your life So live up to it No one can stop you Come come on just do it Oh let it play, hear the music inside your head For yesterday will never come back Fly and you’ll find it’s alright Just let yourself be free Tonight Higher and out of sight And your troubles will melt away You gotta try Now is the right time So let your feelings show You’re alive! How can you try to survive Get up and move along You gotta try

I should’ve known the joke had gone too far I should’ve seen the danger in her eyes But it’s hard to resist When you dream of a kiss I should’ve known she’d set my heart on fire Tell me how can I explain? Wanting more than I should take Dangerous game I should’ve run away right from the start I should’ve fled the scene into the dark But you know that it’s real When it’s time, you can feel I should’ve found again that place to hide. Tell me how can I exist? When it’s love that I can miss? Dangerous game And now it’s done I know it’s wrong I’ve waited for so long No one to blame I chose to play Dangerous Game She played along We sang a song And I am not that strong This burning flame I’ll never be the same Dangerous Game I should’ve stopped the beating of my heart I should’ve said: “we’ll never be apart” Cause I knew all the pain In the end will remain I should’ve known desire can’t be smart Tell me how can I embrace When I can’t look at my face? Dangerous Game Chorus

Leave the day job, you’re done feeling blue There’s a whole world outside waiting for you Now it’s time to play, shake your stress away Unlike any other day Get together ‘cause it’s been awhile Great pretender, release your inner child Now it’s time to play. It’s your holiday ‘Cause tonight you’re gonna say Ooh ah give me that beat. I know that you can! Ooh ah move your body Ooh ah make it groovy. I know that you can! Ooh ah shake it with me We’ll be cruisin’. Come out with me tonight Feel the music and don’t put up a fight Now it’s time to play. It’s your holiday ‘Cause tonight you’re gonna say Chorus x 2 For tomorrow brings the daily grind Of your hazy pastel life So tonight just leave it all behind And forget your wife Chorus We’re movin’ when you give me that beat We’re groovin’ you can’t control your feet We’re movin’ when you give me that beat We’re groovin’ you can’t control your feet Chorus until end

Chameleon 04:21
I’ve been waiting to figure it out I thought when I grew up it’d just come about What does it mean to say “This is me”? And can I be defined so easily? I woke up this morning, look in the mirror And think about the traits that I hold dear How should I try to express myself today? Because there’s so many ways And when I change out of this skin That persona can go, ‘cause it’s not personal Oh baby, when I change out of these clothes I know that I can show a myriad of souls Oh baby, when I change! Too many options. Nothing to wear. An existential fuss I just can’t bear. Which of the many facets should I show? There’s even more than I can know! Chorus We’re like the chameleon Our colours shift in other directions we go in To stand out or blend in? I’m not me, I am nothing, or everything because I can change! Chorus I’m anything because I can change!

Every morning I lie down in my bed Ah hearing a pan man in me head Playing melodies, driving me crazy I think I go dead He beating He playing He beating He playing Like an alien from a strange nation That is coming to get me Got me feeling this sensation So I dance to me break free Chorus Una voz una Cancion un mismo dolor... Un amor un adios y un futuro seductor ...

I believe it’s time For love to come home And for us to be strong Let me ease your mind You know love will set you free If you only let it be Give it up Don’t make me cry Stay around Be mine I’ll never hurt you baby Oh just come along Won’t you hear my song? Tell me do you wanna leave now? Show me you’re mine Only you can let this love in Hold me tonight I can see it in your eyes I know that it’s tough Cause the world can be cold Baby please oh can’t you see? I’ve been loved and I’ve been hurt And I know this can’t be wrong Look at me Love is so unfair Won’t you hear My lover’s prayer? Don’t let this love fade away Girl it’s you and me This is all meant to be Chorus

I Need You 03:46
Who did I see when everybody was long gone? Who did I trust when everyone was wrong? Who did I know was always looking out for me? Could I go back? That’s where I wanna be I can’t imagine this world without you in it Don’t you know I won’t let go I need you to hold on I need you to be strong I need you to spend the rest of your life standing here by my side I need you to hold on I need you to be strong I need you to fight for this love of ours, save it before it’s gone I need you Hours go by: no texts, no calls, no messages Why do I feel it’s something that I did? Where is the man that’s always looking out for me? Can we go back to where I wanna be? I won’t imagine this world without you in it Don’t you know I can’t let go Chorus Lay awake at night and wonder what did you come for Did I know back then that it was me who was done for? I would get so worried that it wouldn’t turn into more And then, eventually, you’d show up at my door I would often ask myself, “why does this happen to me?” I didn’t know back then that only I could make myself free. Even though the signs were there that this was never meant to be, can’t you see? Chorus

Look around, everywhere And tell me what you see People all around Searching for love Everybody’s waiting For tomorrow not today Rushing through the streets Just go go go! Will we ever find the love that we miss walking in the dark feeling alone Well it’s time to realize to tell you the truth that it’s only me and you Walk with me Sail on We can move along If you try You will find me I’ve been waiting on you Are you feeling it too? I’ve been waiting all my life to get real So tell me what you need now I’ve been waiting on you And you know that it’s true We’ll be together all the time, we’ll be free Just show me how you feel right now Every boy, every girl Living in a dream Wondering deep inside What will it be Everybody’s working Just to make it through the day Hoping to survive And we can’t see Can we leave behind The pain that we feel Can we be together Living in peace? Well it’s time to realize to tell you the truth that it’s only me and you Chorus

Moctezuma II 06:04
And so, he was told By men of his own Their God would return And the city would burn And he was afraid His kingdom would fade For no one will save A man from his fate Across from the sea In a murdering spree To make him believe, Get down on his knees And so, late at night He’d dream of the fight. The murdering rite For the God of the White. He wondered, in pain Though it was in vain, If people were slain, Would he still remain? He thought of the past His kingdom so vast Would vanish so fast. The shadow was cast… And who would he blame For all of his shame Of being so tame Like others would claim As he stood in fear He felt death was near He heard loud and clear: “The Spaniards are here”. Moctezuma you must pray Down in history you will stay All your race soon will face Moctezuma’s death

Wake Up 05:06
All through the world people have the voice to sing All through the world people have the legs to dance But they sit in silence every day and watch their lives pass by While the world turns and never bats an eye Cuando la voz no se usó para cantar Y la canción no se usó para bailar Y quedamos en silencio Y vemos la vida pasar Cuando el mundo duerme Y gira sin hablar You‘ve got to wake up, open your eyes Go to the streets and head for the sky Wake up, forget yourself Reach out your hand and touch someone else Wake up! Now is the time if you delay you cannot rewind And when it’s done and the journey comes to an end You won’t be gone if your heart belongs to a friend Cause we’ll share the love and share the fight Though the through the dying light We will walk together looking eye to eye Chorus Do not waste your life It’s an obligation Happiness is found In the common ground Despierta! Oye despierta!
