Love you, girl! Favorite track: Back to Earth.

Max Dread Jackie Venson, happy discovery. I don't want to make wrong assumptions about how this album was made, but it brings to mind the great studio artists--Mayfield, Wonder, Prince, and Kravitz, sure, that's easy--but also people like Peter Gabriel, Kate Bush, J Mascis, and Ty Segall. Personal, even introspective, but facing out out to the world, bold and strong. Something here for everyone. Destined to be a classic. Favorite track: Don't Lie to Me.

With your hands you grab my hips Pull me closer I feel your warmth Dreams so real that I forget You are no longer I only have you this way And I know you can't stay I only have you I only have you this way Don't want to let our dream go Though it haunts me it also thrills me As soon as I close my eyes You're waiting for me I only have you this way And I know you can't stay I only have you I only have you this way I only have you this way And I know you can't stay I only have you I only have you this way I'm living in a dream world Wake me up wake me up wake me up wake me up Need to move on without you I cannot have you this way My dreams are where I'm with you but Wake me up wake me up wake me up wake me up My soul deserves someone to love I cannot have you this way Wake me up wake me up wake me up wake me up In the new light of the morning My soul deserves someone to love In the new light of the morning Wake me up wake me up wake me up wake me up In the new light of the morning In the new light of the morning It'll be alright in the morning I cannot have you I cannot have you this way Wake me up wake me up wake me up wake me up

Keep On 03:59
I know this dance taking this chance Damned if we do damned if we don’t Truth sets us free I need honesty Even when it frightens me and oh it frightens me It seems impossible you and I Our worlds will change as soon as we try Try yeah High in the sky Onto the next Ride or die Keep on keep on Singing oh Keep on keep on Feelin’ oh Keep on keep on My body with his arms around me Makes me feel this way feel this way Can’t help myself my fire’s burning I can’t stay away, stay away Now we’re here there is no turning back, no If it’s real love me and make it last, oh yeah High in the sky Onto the next Ride or die Keep on keep on Singing oh Keep on keep on Feelin’ oh Keep on keep on Until I find someone find someone, find someone to love I will not settle for settle for anything but love High in the sky Onto the next Ride or die Keep on keep on Singing oh Keep on keep on Feelin’ oh Keep on keep on

Well I rolled and tumbled Cried the whole day through Well I rolled and tumbled Cried the whole day through I need me to find another man Who loves me the way you do Well I’m searching far and wide Trying to hide my fears I’m searching far and wide Trying to hide my tears I need me to find another man Who won’t hurt me the way you did Way you did Way you did Way you did [gtr solo] Well these tears that I cried Almost drowned my soul These tears that I cried Almost drowned my soul I need me to find another way A way to carry on On my own Carry on Don’t need no man Just my guitar Carry on Carry on

Cannot take this from me I will always be free I already broke my chains Cannot take this from me I will always be free I already changed my name Never gonna close my eyes Never gonna waste my time Never gonna say die never gonna say die Never gonna close my mind Never gonna waste my time Never gonna say die never gonna say die He told me he won’t love me So I will roll up my sleeves And I will do it myself I don’t wait for anybody And I know that nothing is free So I’m gonna prove my worth Never gonna close my eyes Never gonna waste my time Never gonna say die never gonna say die Never gonna close my mind Never gonna waste my time Never gonna say die never gonna say die [gtr solo] Never gonna close my eyes Never gonna waste my time Never gonna say die never gonna say die Never gonna close my eyes Never gonna waste my time Never gonna say die, die Never gonna close my eyes Never gonna waste my time Never gonna say die never gonna say die Never gonna close my mind Never gonna waste my time Never gonna say die never gonna Never gonna say die, die.

Witchcraft 03:30
I don't praise your God I praise the earth and the sky and the moon I don't follow time I follow waves of the ocean of my womb What I do to you is witchcraft And it’s up to you resist that So time after time we had the power But no chance to shine Only to be devoured Waiting patiently For things to change Well now change has come Prepare for the wave What I do to you is witchcraft And it’s up to you resist that What I do to you is witchcraft And it’s up to you [instrumental breakdown] There's a new day coming oh my how we've prayed There's a new wave coming don't get swept away There's a new day coming oh my how we've prayed There's a new wave coming don't get swept away There's a new day coming oh my how we've prayed There's a new wave coming don't get swept away There's a new day coming oh my how we've prayed There's a new wave coming don't get swept away What I do to you is witchcraft And it’s up to you resist that What I do to you is witchcraft And it’s up to you resist that

Next Life 03:53
Exploding stars in the sky That is what would be him and I He still don’t understand So let’s give it another round See you in the next life See you in the next life See ya see ya See you in the next life See you in the next life. Open your eyes In the next life ’Til then I’ll fly Live up live high He’s not meant to be mine And I’ve been born a thousand times Timing is everything So I will wait patiently See you in the next life See you in the next life See ya see ya See you in the next life See you in the next life See you in the next life See you in the next life See ya see ya See you in the next life See you in the next life. You forgot to learn how to crawl Your eyes are open can you see me at all You look the same but you don’t know You were mine a long time ago Some dreams are meant to burn I’ll watch you fade away Take this lifetime figure it out I’ll see you again next time around around See you in the next life See you in the next life See ya see ya See you in the next life See you in the next life See you in the next life See you in the next life See ya see ya See you in the next life See you in the next life.

Dance he said dance like you’ll never dance again Laugh he said laugh like you’ll never laugh again He died a young man but seemed an old man He saw not the end but a way to begin again So tell me once tell me twice, tell me that I’ll never die When you lie, won’t you please tell me why? When you can then I’ll search for the answers But I’ll get lost and find more to wonder Like why the dead man knows it all And why I feel alone And why I try to fly but always fall Back to earth [gtr solo] And when I die I’ll know it all And I accept that I am alone And I will try to fly but I will fall Back to earth

Flying Remix 04:10
And from the ashes something new grows Funny how this life On and on it goes on and on it goes I've always been told reach for the sky But I'm already high Love knows no levels love knows no levels And I see where I am going And I see where I have been Keep my faith forever flowing until the end And I see where I am going And I see where I have been Keep my faith forever flowing until the end I am flying, spreading my wings Will you miss me when I'm gone? Yes some are born blessed But there's beauty in the struggle All of us are one My fight is your fight, my fight is your fight We grow together it's our responsibility To love unconditionally And carry on the life, carry on the life And I see where I am going And I see where I have been Keep my faith forever flowing until the end And I see where I am going And I see where I have been Keep my faith forever flowing until the end I am flying, spreading my wings Will you miss me when I'm gone? I am flying, someday soaring So will you catch me when I fall? [instrumental] I will let my love flow free from my head down to my feet I will let my love flow free from my heart into my strings

All Rise 03:01
I went to church today To try to find my way The preacher was a shade of grey Turned on the radio To make my heart grow All the songs were DOA Over again, over again We never seem to learn All rise for the wave of humanity trapped in insanity All rise for the wave of humanity trapped Wouldn't you wouldn’t you wouldn’t you rather be in love? All rise for the wave of humanity trapped I saw a film and cried Cos it exposed the lies The message it was lost in time Don't know what to believe Versus what I perceive The truth is in front of my eyes Over again over again We never seem to learn All rise for the wave of humanity trapped in insanity All rise for the wave of humanity trapped Wouldn't you wouldn’t you wouldn’t you rather be in love? All rise for the wave of humanity trapped in insanity [Solo] I would rather be in love Lose myself and rise above I would rather be in love Joy and peace will be enough I would rather be in love We never seem to learn All rise for the wave of humanity trapped in insanity All rise for the wave of humanity trapped Wouldn't you wouldn’t you wouldn’t you rather be in love? All rise for the wave of humanity trapped in insanity.

As the wind is blowing it carries away my trust As the rain is pouring it washes away my lust My eyes are wide open all I see is one man He better act fast now and catch me while he still can Don’t lie to me, don’t lie to me don’t lie to me Don’t lie to me, don’t lie to me I cared for you My heart it beats to the rhythm of mercy Oh how I long to believe that he loves me I need to be careful I need to protect myself Surround me with wisdom of the divine truth yeah Don’t lie to me, don’t lie to me don’t lie to me Don’t lie to me, don’t lie to me I cared for you So hard to trust, I have to let go ‘Cos I don’t want to wait so long for love And so I must, I have to let go So I don’t have to wait so long for love I can feel his energy I won’t let him come for me hey hey I can feel his energy I won’t let him come for me hey hey I can feel his energy but I will overcome I will overcome I will overcome As the wind is blowing it carries away my trust As the rain is pouring it washes away my lust My eyes are wide open all I see is one man He better act fast now and catch me while he still can

Summertime spring has come and gone Golden rays of light illumination I see so clearly now I have a vision They say follow your dreams They say follow your dreams I will follow my dreams And I know that I don’t want to suffer And so I will leave my bags behind And be brave no matter how uncertain Oh I will find I will find a way There will be there will be a way I will find I will find a way As I’ve grown I have left behind The part of me that can’t make up her mind They took advantage of her I feel I can’t go on I know I must go on Oh I will go on And I know that I don’t want to suffer And so I will listen to my heart And be brave unfazed by the darkness Oh I will find I will find a way I’m telling you there will be there will be a way I will find I will find I will find oh I will find [gtr solo] I will find oh I will find a way I’m telling you there will be there will be a way I will find oh I will find a way I’m telling you there will be there will be a way I will find oh I will find a way

Afterglow 04:53
Don’t know why I still think about him Even though he don’t deserve my thoughts Don’t know how I will let anyone in I need to know I need to know And sometimes I wanna kick down these walls But then I know I won’t be protected But protection at what cost I need to know I need to know yeah So exciting at the start Then you live the day by day Don’t let it go don’t let it fall apart Once the shine starts to fade yeah Afterglow come and go Afterglow come and go And I know I need to open my heart So I can learn to love How to conquer the fear of hurt? I need I need I need to know, I need to know yeah So exciting at the start Then you live the day by day Don’t let it go don’t let it fall apart Once the shine starts to fade yeah Afterglow come and go Afterglow come and go Come and go go go go go go go Come and go, go Come and go go go go go go go Come and go, go Come and go, come and go I believe in love reality If I want to love I have to work for it Not everything is worth my energy Follow vibrations and I’ll never get lost no I believe in knowing when it’s right I have faith in myself and I Follow vibrations and I’ll never get lost Never get lost, never get lost Never get lost, never get lost Never get lost, never get lost Never get lost, never get lost Never get lost Just like the wind blows it comes and goes Feel what I feel in my soul, it comes and goes comes and goes oh Just like the wind blows it comes and goes Take what it wants as a toll, it comes and goes comes and goes oh Just like the afterglow I come and go Oh I come and go

Joy 04:02
When it was me and you You ran away at something new Realized I had been used Now trust is hard to do Not only tonight give me tomorrow The work is never done it’s the pill I have swallowed So I will forgive I won’t take it personal There always is a choice, I have made the choice I choose joy Joy Thought you were a good idea Knew I could not make it real Try to force it make it work Immediate crash and burn Gotta leave tonight I can’t give tomorrow Short term happiness can be long term sorrow Hope you can forgive hope you find a real love Whenever I lose track, it always brings me back I choose joy Joy I choose joy Joy Another tall tale, too short to try it When you hide behind a mask, I don’t buy it Give me actions, not only words When it’s time to stand, you’re in the dirt I decide I decide My soul is not for rent I decide I decide My dreams cannot be bent I decide I decide Ignore the noise I decide I decide I choose joy All around me Joy I choose joy Like a symphony Joy I choose joy All I ever need Joy I choose joy All I never need Joy

I was sitting here thinking about you When I was distracted by the promise of something new The way you treated me it's a damn shame 'Cos even a fool knows I'm a prize to claim Freedom has a high price True love won’t make me roll the dice When it’s right it’s right We all know what that means When it’s right it’s right And I know by now swimmin' in a sea of change Some people run and hide but I ride the wave I take comfort in knowing this is fact’ Cos even when my chips are down baby I know I'll bounce back Freedom has a high price True love won’t make me roll the dice When it’s right it’s right We all know what that means When it’s right it’s right We all know what that means When it’s right it’s right I know who I am I know what I’m here to do Joy and faith resound I won’t give up Through my darkest nights Like a light love guides me Strength and hope surround I Keep looking up I know who I am And I know what I am worth I won’t compromise When it’s right it’s right We all know what that means When it’s right it’s right We all know what that means When it’s right it’s right yeah We all know what that means When it’s right, it’s right
