Lyrics

"SHATTER"

Written By: Ashraf Amin

Chorus:

All of the moments we had were so sweet and bitter
Wonder how it would've been if we stayed together
I thought we both knew it couldn't go any further
How could I've known that it be all of your dreams I'd shatter

"KISS"

Written By: Ashraf Amin

Chorus:

I love the way you lose yourself in a kiss
The way your body moves, the taste of your lips
Oh how you sooth my soul with your finger tips
I love the way I lose myself in your kiss

"WHISPERS"

Written By: Ashraf Amin

Chorus:

Whispers and wishes of candles and kisses, I dream of you here by my side
Sweet summer breezes sway through your eye lashes, these memories I long to hide
Lonesome and lifeless I lie here in silence, tormented by tears locked inside
Forceful and fearless, embracing indifference, in solitude I will confide

ISABELLA"

Written By: Ashraf Amin

Chorus:

Shake your hips and throw your hands up high
Let your body move I see your smile
Do your thing mammy one more time
I said, shake your hips and throw your hands in the air
Move your body like you just don't care
Fellows don't just stand there and stare

"ELVIS"

Written By: Ashraf Amin

Chorus:

You’re my stroke of lighting
You’re my Elvis sighting
You still consume a part of me
You’re my broken arrow
You’re my star lit shadow
You still invade my every thought and dream

"VISION OF HEAVEN"

Written By: Ashraf Amin

Chorus:

From the moment
You walked through that door
A vision of heaven,
I had to explore
You left me yearning,
Wanting some more
I’ve never seen
Such beauty before
