Track Name: Voodoo
We all need somebody, Yes it's true.
I don't want somebody, unless it's you.
You go straight through the heart of me
You know how to touch every part of me
and I don't know how you do it,
It's indescribable it's like magic, like magic-
Yeah!

I'm under your spell
I don't know how you do the Voodoo that you do
I'm under your spell
I don't know how you do the Voodoo.

We all need Somebody, Yes It's true.
Well I don't want just somebody, unless it's you
I summoned the spirits within me,
To try to restore my sanity,
But with just one taste of your poison
You stole my heart, you're like a felon, you're like a felon
Yeah!

I'm under your spell
I don't know how you do the Voodoo that you do
I'm under your spell
I don't know how you do the Voodoo.

(Interlude...)
It can't be that bad when it feels this good
You got me hooked liked I knew you would
I light a candle every night,
hoping you come home and make it right
I'll offer you my sacrifice, I'll give you my body
If you make it feel nice.
It can't be that bad if it feels this good
No it can't be that bad if it feels this good
Oh, yeah
Track Name: Siete
If you want a romance
Move your body in a dance
It's alright!
I can make you move
Put you in a trance
It's out of sight!

When you hear the music play
It moves you that way
Let it all go,
through your body It will flow
If you want a romance
Move your body in a dance
It's alright!

If you want to take a chance
Free your mind and take my hand
It's alright!
Let the moment be your guide
And let your backbone slide
It's out of sight!
I'll say it out loud, shout it in the streets
How many days do I love you in a week
Siete!
Uno, dos, tres, quatro, cinqo, seize, Siete!
Track Name: Song 4 Karla
She sneaks out late at night Into the dark
While he in unaware she's breaking his heart
But he can't stop her from leaving their home
It's been too many nights he's been spending alone

When night falls
She feels the need to get out
Her lover calls
No she can't help herself
The time has come for her to run!
OH!

Karla is breaking his heart
But he doesn't see
Karla is breaking his heart

She breaks the news she has another lover
So he breaks the dishes one after another
He says if you leave now it will be forever
She says I must go, no we can't be together

Karla is breaking his heart
But he doesn't know
Karla is breaking his heart

What he doesn't know
Can't hurt him
What he doesn't see
Can't hurt him

When all is said and done she'll move along
She'll find someone else And they'll sing her this song
You don't stand a chance against this feline in heat
She is a carnivore, you're the fresh meat!

Karla is breaking his heart
But he doesn't see
Karla is breaking his heart

Karla is breaking his heart
But he doesn't know
Karla is breaking his heart
Track Name: Kalayaan ( A Song 4 Freedom)
Chante, come le monde va mourir
si tu reste trop longue dans le silence, dans le silence
Chante, come le monde va mourir
si tu reste trop longue dans le silence

People chanting in the street
all they want is to be free
Men with power want to rule us
use their words to try to fool us

Oh no Oh no
KaLayaan- KaLayaan Sing

Every man woman and child
deserve to live their live in peace
lets all sing a song for freedom
All the people of the world

All the people of the world
let's all sings a song for freedom
For every man, woman and child
Let us sing they're not forgotten

Oh no, Oh no
KaLayaan- KaLayaan Sing

Chante, Come le monde va mourir
si tu reste trop longue dans le silence, dans le silence
Chante, come le monde va mourir
si tu reste trop longue dans le silence

Oh no, Oh no
KaLayaan- KaLayaan Sing
Track Name: India
Hey oh, hey oh
Hey oh Hey oh

I was born here but I come from somewhere else
Now I'm torn here Need to leave this place behind
Need to find peace of mind
Need to leave this place behind
Need to find peace of mind
Need to leave this place behind

That is why I want to go to India
That is why she is just not that into you
Give it time Karma will show it's face
And in time I will find my open space

This is why I have to travel very far
Far away and find where I was meant to be
See my world in a way I've never seen
Far away from what I've learned and want to change
This is why i have to travel very far
This is why


Do you know why I need to be in Africa
Sometimes I cry because my heart wants to be there
So far away in a place I haven't been
I close my eyes imagine the sun upon my skin
You will find me as soon as I can find myself
I leave behind me all i own and all my wealth
I want to start again, start again with nothing else
But myself and learn, the real way of love

This is why I have to travel very far
Far away and find where I was meant to be
See my world in a way I've never seen
Far away from what I've learned and want to change
This is why i have to travel very far
This is why

Hey oh, hey oh
Hey oh Hey oh
Track Name: The Dude
He walked in the room
From the dark side of the moon
I liked his understated style
Then he flashed his rock style smile
Candy dripping from his words
Both a blessing and a curse
He had the fire in his eyes
He lit my fuse inside

My mama warned me of his kind,
He'll tear at you're heart a little bit at a time
Was staring in the face of danger,
Men like you should come with a disclaimer
Undressed all my insecurities
Even had me thinking psychotherapy
Well, I gotta learn to trust myself,
I gotta feeling he's a hazard to my health

Keep away keep away now
I need to respect myself
I gotta a feeling you're a hazard
hazard to my health
Oh yeah!

My mama warned me of his kind
Tear at you're heart a little bit at a time
But i can see with my own eyes
That you wear a thin disguise
Gotta listen to the little voice in my head
So I don't get mislead
Listen to that voice in my head
Yeah! that's what I said

Keep away keep away now
need to respect myself
You're a hazard
hazard to my health
