Havana, ooh na-na (ay) Half of my heart is in Havana, ooh-na-na (ay, ay) He took me back to East Atlanta, na-na-na All of my heart is in Havana (ay) There’s somethin’ ’bout his manners (uh huh) Havana, ooh na-na He didn’t walk up with that “how you doin’?” (When he came in the room)…

Dia de los muertos

Hold on, Holy Ghost Go on, hold me close Better run, here we come It’s the day of the dead Hold on, Holy Ghost So long to the ones you know Better run, here we come It’s the day of the dead This is exactly what has to be done, it happened so gradually It’s…

The Invitation

You and your smile Hold a strange invitation Somehow it seems We’ve shared our dreams But where? Time after time In a room full of strangers Out of the blue Suddenly you are there Wherever I go You’re the glow of temptation Glancing my way In the gray of the dawn And always your eyes…

Devilish

Why can’t I stop the feeling? It’s running through my veins and I Think I’ve been doing this too long and now my heart is gone Tempted by a spirit, driven by a curiosity And it nothing like me to keep you far away Oh, every part of me is lost What I’m feeling is…

Pick your poison

I pick my poison and it’s you Nothing could kill me like you do You’re going straight to my head And I’m heading straight for the edge I pick my poison and it’s you I pick my poison and it’s you This bittersweet ecstasy that you got me in Falling deep I can’t sleep tonight…

Hidden Secrets

Watch the sunrise Say your goodbyes Off we go Some conversation No contemplation Hit the road Car overheats Jump out of my seat On the side of the highway baby Our road is long Your hold is strong Please don’t ever let go Oh No I know I don’t know you But I want you…

Bad Intentions

This is the face I wear treading the riptide Abysmal oceans where good girls go to die I wanna love somebody Wanna feel their love on me But after everything I still believe in true love Not being able to find it Damn it tears me up And I know it’s my fault I know…

Come Home

Hello world Hope you’re listening Forgive me if I’m young For speaking out of turn There’s someone I’ve been missing I think that they could be The better half of me They’re in the wrong place trying to make it right But I’m tired of justifying So I say to you.. Come home Come home…

Warm Feelings

I’m a little shy, but I know you know I haven’t done this too much, cause I did not know I’m feeling this devotion, touching your emotion I can see the love run right out of you Moments like these are golden, never felt so open Even if I’m dreaming, I’m dreaming with you So…

Pumpkins and Leaves

I’m five years old It’s getting cold I’ve got my big coat on I hear your laugh And look up smiling at you I run and run Past the pumpkin patch And the tractor rides Look now — the sky is gold I hug your legs And fall asleep On the way home I don’t…

Plum Season

My mother loved the summer But not for the weather She loved the mid-season plums June, July, August sweet ones My father kept them plenty Always stocked in our pantry Some ripe and some well past peak Till she was too sick to eat Still at my childhood home The only home that I’ve known…

The Baker

Baker Baker Baking a cake Make me a day Make me whole again And I wonder What’s in a day What’s in you cake this time I guess you heard He’s gone to LA He says that beihnd my eyes I’m hiding And he tells me I pushed him away That my hearts been hard…
