Track Name: Made Of Gold
Verse 1
If I told you a secret, what would you do?
If I gave you a piece of me, what would you say?
Would you tell your neighbours or let it pass away?
I ain’t perfect so I lay these words to keep me in check
Hard times are no stranger to my door Sometimes I wanna say no more
No more, no more, no more
No more, no more, no more

Chorus
These words are made of gold
These words are made of gold
So why do I lose control
Why do I fall in doubt

Verse 2
Heavy weighted complications
Can I get into your imaginations
Lost my way looking for treasures
I’m in the deep intoxicated
Piece be still take me from the dark
Flickers of light I thought I had her heart
Hard times are no stranger to my door
Sometimes I wanna say no more
No more, no more, no more
No more, no more, no more
Track Name: Granny
Verse 1
I’ve been a stranger, I’ve been a fool Promise I ain’t forgot about you
I’ve been a loser without a clue every now and then I think of you
oh I, know I ain’t said hello in a while I just need to make time
But I’m caught up in life
Oh I wonder how my life would be
If I hadn’t cross the seas
Would I be who I’m supposed to be

Chorus
I just wanna thank you
I just wanna thank you
I just wanna thank you
Cause you’ve been good, so good

Verse 2
All my life I’ve been working for this dream But sometimes it takes over
So focused that I lose control
Its the strength that you instilled in me Pumpkin soup on Sunday, oh lord
The struggle was so real
oh I owe you, one day I’ll show you
That I’m grateful and that I love you

Chorus
I just wanna thank you
I just wanna thank you
I just wanna thank you
Cause you’ve been good, so good

Outro 1
Grandma dont you cry You know love you till i die Grandpa I see you smile Big up you chest like ion-i
Aunty Don’t you cry
You know love you till I die Grandpa I see you smile Big up you chest like ion-i
Track Name: Freedom
Intro
Freedom, freedom oh oh oh Freedom, freedom oh oh oh

Verse1
They say love is unconditional
Well, tell it to the kids you've been shooting down You seem to think that I've got it wrong
Tell me, where was the justice in Ferguson
They say in life we are all equal
Tell it to the queen who can't find her crown
Born into a world where she’s forced to be strong Age 12 and she's fighting for her freedom
And every night she sings

Chorus
Freedom is what we want now Freedom is what we need Freedom is what we want now Freedom is what we need

Verse 2
I heard she travelled 100miles to escape the guns Both parents gone, now she has no one
Praying for a new life in a foreign land
On the borders pleading, hoping you will understand We talk about the problem but we wont change Giving up some privileges seem too insane
Can we war no more, cause we're losing our young How far can we go without our freedom
So if you hear me sing

Chorus
Freedom is what we want now Freedom is what we need Freedom is what we want now Freedom is what we need (x 2)

Outro
Tell it to them now
Shout it out loud
Tell it to them now
Cause we've had enough
Track Name: Where Were You
Intro
Where were you,
Where were you (oooh ooh, oooh ooh)

Verse 1
Old days, darks nights
Sometimes I wonder why
Big man like me don’t cry
When theres so much anger locked up inside
I blamed you, now I don’t
Understand I’m a man on my own
Absent when I was young, fatherless
When my feet couldn’t touch the cross
Now I made a couple tunes, you wanna show up like I was lost and found
I don’t really care but I still would like to know
Can you tell me

Chorus
Where were you when I was young
Where were you was I was no one
Bet you wanna know me now
Where were you when young where you when I needed your love
Don’t try to calm me down

Verse 2
It is too late, I wanna say its too late but its never too late
Things have changed and I’m not the same little boy anymore I don’t want your flattery, don’t try to bother me
Can’t deal with you no more
And I don’t your shame, it will drive me insane
So I had to let it go
Don’t try to calm me down
Don’t try to fix my frown
Cause you weren’t around
Old days when I was in need I still wanna know

Chorus
Where were you when I was young
Where were you was I was no one
Bet you wanna know me now
Where were you when young where you when I needed your love
Don’t try to calm me down
