This performer began his musical journey at the tender age of two, when he sang his first words to “Tears for Fears” hit single “Shout”. It was at this early age where Adonis revealed the power of his voice and embarked on a mission to uncover his love for melody and harmony.

Biography

ADONIS’s story began when his father escaped Lebanon’s Civil War during the late 70’s and found refuge in Canada’s Motor City of Windsor where he later met Adonis’s mother (daughter of Italian immigrants). The young couple discovered each other’s cultural differences as well as similar traditional values which they have extended to Adonis.

ADONIS's feel and creativity is reminiscent to that of a modern day “Motowner”. Adonis draws together a mixture of musical genres including moving love songs as well as an exclusive pop sound. His music and recordings air an excitement from his body and soul.

Adonis has earned the respect of fans through his true openness and sense of understanding. His simple personality features qualities of pop cultures all alike.

Today, Adonis continues to create fresh ideas and entertains the music world with the feelings of wanting to dance, or the feeling of wanting to cry, or just being happy.

Career Highlights: Adonis has recorded with songwriter Hershel Boone(songwriter for Glen Lewis, Debolah Morgan & Anita Baker).

Lyrics

EVERYTIME (2005)

Written By: ADONIS

I could never say exactly
How I feel
Cause every time that I see you
I can’t reveal
My emotions that are going crazy for you
That’s why I need to know
Should I keep calling you or just let you go
Baby just give me a sign
Cause you got me going out of my mind
I’m tired of all these games
Baby tell me if your feelings have changed
Cause I need ya
And I want you
In my life

And if you’re moving on
Just tell me so
So I can close this chapter in my life
I need to know
And if you’re moving on
Just tell me so
So I can walk away
I don’t want to chase your love anymore

EVERYTIME I TURN AROUND
I SEE YOU
MY HEART IS LONELY
AND MY MIND IS SO CONFUSED
THESE WALLS OF LOVE ARE CLOSING IN ON ME
AND I DON’T HAVE A CLUE
WHAT SHOULD I DO
BUT I’M STILL WAITING FOR YOU

You know that
I tried
To put you aside
Your loves like a melody
It keeps haunting my mind baby
And all I really can do
Is envision me right beside you
If your feeling have changed
Baby let me know
And if your moving on
Just tell me so
So I can close this chapter in my life
I need to know
And if you’re moving on
Just tell me so
So I can walk away
I don’t want to chase your love anymore

EVERYTIME I TURN AROUND
I SEE YOU
MY HEART IS LONELY
AND MY MIND IS SO CONFUSED
THESE WALLS OF LOVE ARE CLOSING IN ON ME
AND I DON’T HAVE A CLUE
WHAT SHOULD I DO
BUT I’M STILL WAITING FOR YOU

I sometimes want to fly away
To a place where I can see your face

Guitar Solo

And if you’re moving
Just tell me so
So I can walk away
I don’t want to chase your love anymore

EVERYTIME I TURN AROUND
I SEE YOU
MY HEART IS LONELY
AND MY MIND IS SO CONFUSED
THESE WALLS OF LOVE ARE CLOSING IN ON ME
AND I DON’T HAVE A CLUE
WHAT SHOULD I DO
BUT I’M STILL WAITING FOR YOU

IF YOU WANT LOVE (2005)

Written By: ADONIS

I was lost
But here I am
I’m down and broken hearted
Realizing what I’ve done
Can I have a second chance with you
Oh, how I need your magic touch

IF YOU WANT LOVE
JUST CALL ON ME AND I’LL BE THERE
CAUSE NO ONE ELSE COULD EVER CARE
AS MUCH AS I DO
SO BABY COME ON BACK TO ME
GIVE A LITTLE LOVE
IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT THEY SAY
PLEASE DON’T PLAY MY HEART THIS WAY
IF YOU NEED LOVE
THEN I’LL BE THERE

Lately I’ve been feeling pain
Cause your driving me insane
The past is gone but the presents coming soon
Oh, I want another chance with you
Can you make my dreams come true
Oh, I need your magic touch

IF YOU WANT LOVE
JUST CALL ON ME AND I’LL BE THERE
CAUSE NO ONE ELSE COULD EVER CARE
AS MUCH AS I DO
SO BABY COME ON BACK TO ME
GIVE ALITTLE LOVE
IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT THEY SAY
PLEASE DON’T PLAY MY HEART THIS WAY
IF YOU NEED LOVE
THEN I’LL BE THERE

Oh, how I need you close to me
So I can feel your heart beat
Just trust in me and I will

Prove to you that we’re meant to be (oh)
Baby you know I want you
I was meant for you (oh)
I need your magic touch

IF YOU WANT LOVE
JUST CALL ON ME AND I’LL BE THERE
CAUSE NO ONE ELSE COULD EVER CARE
AS MUCH AS I DO
SO BABY COME ON BACK TO ME
GIVE ALITTLE LOVE
IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT THEY SAY
PLEASE DON’T PLAY MY HEART THIS WAY
IF YOU NEED LOVE
THEN I’LL BE THERE

I’M MOVING ON (2004)

Written By: ADONIS

I called you up the other day
To tell you that I love you
But to my surprise
It ended up being good-bye
It’s so true

It’s funny how sometimes your feelings
Change dramatically
But the other day you promised that you’d
Never let me go

So I’m asking you
This one simple question
Is this what you want
Why do you act this way

YOU CALL ME A LIAR AND A PLAYER
BUT YOU KNOW I’M NOT
YOU SAY THAT I DIDN’T LOVE YOU
BUT I GAVE YOU EVERYTHING
I’M MOVING ON
YOU TELL ME THAT I’VE CHANGED
BUT I’M STILL REMAIN
THE MAN WHO I AM
I’M THROUGH WITH YOUR GAMES
I’M MOVING ON
I’M MOVING ON 4X

I got to find myself
I got something else in mind
A different way of what to
A new attitude without you
I’m living up to what say
acting on my own
I don’t need your constant company
I’m happy to be free

So I’m asking you
This one simple question
Is this what you planned
It didn’t have to be this way

YOU CALL ME A LIAR AND A PLAYER
BUT YOU KNOW I’M NOT
YOU SAY THAT I DIDN’T LOVE YOU
BUT I GAVE YOU EVERYTHING
I’M MOVING ON
YOU TELL ME THAT I’VE CHANGED
BUT I’M STILL REMAIN
THE MAN WHO I AM
I’M THROUGH WITH YOUR GAMES
I’M MOVING ON
I’M MOVING ON 4X

From the start
We should have known
Sadly it would come this way
You accused me and left me
You didn’t give time say
How much I love you
and adore you
I trusted you with all my heart
now you’re gone and I’m moving on

So I’m asking you
This one simple question
Is this what you planned
It didn’t have to be this way

YOU CALL ME A LIAR AND A PLAYER
BUT YOU KNOW I’M NOT
YOU SAY THAT I DIDN’T LOVE YOU
BUT I GAVE YOU EVERYTHING
I’M MOVING ON
YOU TELL ME THAT I’VE CHANGED
BUT I’M STILL REMAIN
THE MAN WHO I AM
I’M THROUGH WITH YOUR GAMES
I’M MOVING ON
I’M MOVING ON 4X
