Lyrics

Love You Still

Written By: Joseph Davis and Philip Sheaff

Love You Still
Sheaff/Davis


There’s no time left to waste, we’ll be older tomorrow
I feel like I’m closer today
It is now that we climb to the mountain-less star
Together Together

From the day I was born I could settle your storm
Always will love you still
Ocean try but you can’t shipwreck destiny’s hand
Always will love you still

There’s no time left to waste, we’ll be older tomorrow
I feel like I’m closer today
It is now that we climb to the mountain-less stars
Together Forever

Atmosphere to the rear we are
finally clear of the mess that we made
Satellite to the left to the right treasure chest
Full of blue shooting rays
And higher and higher we’ll blaze! Yeah!

There’s no time left to waste, we’ll be older tomorrow
I feel like I’m closer away
It is now that we climb to our mountain-less star
Together Together

In this heart we must find
what is yours, yours is mine
'cuz I do love you still
this old heart never breaks
what I have, you can take
'cuz I do, love you.

Afterworld

Written By: Davis

I'm not afraid of this mountain
I'm not afraid of this world
Just be yourself
stay cool
confide in those who wait

We'll take a walk into
A little place I know
We'll take a walk into the Afterworld

I'm not afraid of this challenge
I'm not afraid of that girl
Just be yourself
stay cool
confide in those who wait

Let's take a walk into
A little place I know
Let's take a walk into the Afterworld

Now that I'm old, I'm fortunate
I've opened up.
Now that I'm fortunate I'll take a walk into
A little place I know
I'll take a walk into the Afterworld.

Konichiwa

Written By: Davis/Sheaff

Seen it all, driving down the streets of America

Open up the door for my African buddy that I have in America

While I smoke he chew piece of bubble gum

Talks about the Congo in Africa

We seem to all finally get along

I love the beach. San Diego and California.

Playing volleyball with the Mexicans.

God, I never worked so hard in my life!

I gotta move to Mexico, get a wife

Drinking Cervesas in the avenue

We seem to all finally get along

Kenya Russia Argentina China Canada New Zealand

Costa Rica France Jamaica pivoting around the sun

Malibu and Pasadena Buenos Aries North Korea

Sydney Laos and Italia pivoting around the sun

Koneechewah! Heaven it’s nice to meet you all…

Some are 4 foot high, some are 5 feet tall…

Smarter that I. (Love the sushi bar!)

Thank you for you come to America

What tradition you have in Asia!

We seem to all finally get along
