Oh sweet fiery lady,
I’ve been waiting for you
Come, come, and save me
From my demons won’t you save me
Oh lady won't you take me

Forever looking for you

your arms, straight into your heart

Mira como baila,
Mira como goza,

Where did you go?
nobody can find you..
I wanna know...
Your soul, girl I want to know

Duena del mar
Where did you come from?
Show me the way
I will never run from your grace
Girl we found our space

Track Name: Cada Vez
Hay cariñito, por donde estas?
No se muy bien, ay si regresaras
Pues hace tiempo que no escucho esa bella voz.
Y tengo miedo que no vuelvas mas

Siento el frio, cuando no estas
hay un vacio, que me pega y no aguanto mas
hoy me consuelo con el recuerdo de tu calor
pero la verdad es que te siento…. mas lejos!

Ohhh, cada vez, cada vez mas,
Ohhh, ahhh
Ohhh, cada vez, cada vez mas,
Ohhh, ahhh

Oye mi nena, quiero brindar,
Por los recuerdos de nuestra amistad
Pues hace tiempo que no salimos tu y yo
y la verdad es que te siento … Mas Lejos!


Ohhh, cada vez, cada vez mas,
Ohhh, ahhh
Ohhh, cada vez, cada vez mas,
Ohhh, ahhh

Cada vez, cada vez mas lejos
Cada vez, cada vez mas lejos
Cada vez, cada vez mas lejos
Cada vez, cada vez mas lejos

Ohhh, cada vez, cada vez mas,
Ohhh, ahhh
Ohhh, cada vez, cada vez mas,
Ohhh, ahhh
Track Name: She Belongs
We're standing deep
In broken glass
As we burn the night away
A lady sleeps
In quiet sand
With no other pace to stay

Still in the dark
Still by her side
Fighting off the bitter cold
Her wishful eyes
My numbing bones
Still don’t want to go on home

My eyes are heavy, her arms so cold
We're losing sleep
Another whisper, another song
And it came to me

She belongs a little closer
She belongs right next to me
While the hourglass runs slower
Through the night she's all I see

The morning light
This early glow
Taking back a timid shore
A playful sight
Our beacon home
Lighting up the lonely lonely lonely road

My eyes are heavy, her arms so cold
We're losing sleep
Another whisper, another song
And it came to me

She belongs a little closer
She belongs right next to me
While the hourglass runs slower
Through the night she's all I see

(Instrumental bridge)

She belongs a little closer
She belongs right next to me
While the hourglass runs slower
Through the night she's all I see

La la la la la la la...
Track Name: Funky Juan
Oooh...ohhhhh yah!
Oooh...sikipakapeña!
Oooh...ohhhhh yah!
Oooh...sikipakapeña!

Take us to that place you keep on hiding
Take us to that place you love to go
I know you just want to keep on vibin'
We know you just want to show it all

You can live it up until the morning
Get it anyway you want
We’ll pretend to listen to your drama
If you tryna talk some more
Take another sip until you’re ready,
Make it even three or four
But we gotta get this all going
If you’re tryna rock that floor

And take it off, take it off
So we can take it slow
And take it off, take it off
So we can take it slow

Take us to that place, and take us higher
Take us to that place, and give it all
Ain’t nobody seen much of your fire
Lately, you’ve been cutting out alone

Funky Juan!
Gonna take the night,
Once you bring it home, and you’ll be feelin' alright
Get it low!
When you hit that floor,
bring the funky folky gonna freak it some mo’
Bring it down!
When you rock the crowd,
Gve it away, pinche wey, gonna make it loud
Pinche juan!
Gonna make it right, keepin it funky tonight!

And take it off, take it off
So we can take it slow
And take it off, take it off
So we can take it slow
And take it off, take it off
So we can take it slow...

Keepin it folky tonight!
Track Name: Last Night
Well, it started with a swig of that classy London Gin; it's gone now
We poured tequila, cut the limes, and got fancy with some wine; it's all out
Getting ready for the night
Not a worry on our minds

Struttin' down that rowdy road, feelin' classy, feelin' bold we're headed down
Only one thing on our mind, stay together, keep the stride, don't lose me now
Then I don't know what when down
Guess I must have just passed out

I didn't wake up sober (hey hey hey hey!)
I'm having trouble now
But I don't, no I don't, recall
But if you leave your number
Then we can work it out
But I won't, no I won't, recall
What happened last night!

It's nice to meet ya, I'm glad you stayed for a while
I'm pleased to see that we made it home somehow
But I don't know what when down
Guess I must have just passed out

But if you leave your number
Then we can work it out
But I won't, no I won't, recall
What happened last night!
Track Name: She Comforts Me
I meant to live a quiet life
I changed my ways to make things alright

We learned to face our tears alike
We brushed them off despite our own fright
But easily do we forget
How quarrels rise in a lovers nest
When living a lie
And suddenly did I regret
this blinding pride and slow torment
This painful demise
The green in your eyes

But wait for a while and stay just for now
It will be better, you said to me
This mad senselessness, our own recklessness
Taking this turn unexpectedly

Mmmm

Slowly took our separate ways,
Pretended like it was all the same
We cherished our time
But quickly we fell apart, so full of doubt
we strained these young hearts
But eerily, I did regret this blinding pride and slow torment
My painful demise
The green in your eyes

But wait for a while and stay just for now
It will be better, you said to me
This mad senselessness, our own recklessness
But how do I go when you comfort me?

Oooooh
