Lyrics

Ton Chemin

Written By: Cadet Mwankana

1)French version

Frère cadet :
Le temps pour moi est arrivé de partir d’ici
Pour chercher dans ces pays lointains mon futur, Mon avenir.
Mais dis-moi ! J’ai peur de ce monde, de ce lion furieux
Qui rode autour de moi, oui je crains ces temps durs à venir!
Frère aîné :
Va jusqu’au bout du monde et vois ses merveilles,
Jouis de ta jeunesse tant que tu pourras mais n’oublie pas : …

Chacun de nous a son chemin
Lève tes yeux et suit ton destin
Et l’amour en nous n’a pas de fin
Celui Qui plait à ton cœur, prends sa main

Frère cadet :
Me voici engagé, amoureux, ses yeux bleus ont conquis tout mon cœur
Et tout mon corps, Je l’aime si fort !
Mais elle est du nord, moi du sud ; elle aime la neige, moi les pluies d’Afrique !
Oh non! Ces différents mœurs, tous ces désaccords !
Frère aîné :
Si aimer c'est faire du bien à l’autre et prendre des compromis
Alors tu pourras aimer qui tu voudras mais n’oublie pas : …

Chacun de nous a son chemin
Lève tes yeux et suit ton destin
Et l’amour en nous n’a pas de fin
Celui Qui plait à ton cœur, prends sa main

Frère cadet :
Crois en moi, oui crois en moi
Soutiens moi si non je me sens tout seul
Frère aîné :
Je serai là si jamais tu pleurs
Mais surtout n’oublie pas ta foi

Chacun de nous a son chemin
Lève tes yeux et suit ton destin
Et l’amour en nous n’a pas de fin
Celui Qui plait à ton cœur, prends sa main

2) English Version

Younger brother:
Now it’s the time for me to go away
To look for my future, far away in other land
But, tell me, I’m afraid, I’m frightened
Of this wild and big world, of the future too

Older brother:
Go so far away as you can and see all the wonders of the world
Reap the benefits of you youth and don’t forget that …

(Chorus)
Every one of us has his way/road
Look up and follow your destiny
The love in us is endless
If you like someone, take his/her hand

Younger brother:
Now I’m engaged and in love, her blue eyes seduce me
And all my body, I love her so much
But she’s form the north and I’m from the south, she like snow and I like the African rains
Oh No, to many differences between us, different manners and many misunderstandings

Older brother:
If “to love” means “to do somebody Good” and “to always take compromise solution”
You are able to love who you want to love but don’t forget that …

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
Younger brother:
Please believe in me
Support and assist me, otherwise I am alone
Older brother:
I’ll be there in the case you cry
But most of all, don’t forget to believe in your self

(Chorus)

Good Time

Written By: Julian Wilson

Darilin’ I tell you now
It can't get no better
Under this summer sky
I could smile forever
Grey clouds can't touch me now
My mood is lifted
And now my soul cries out
Cries out to make music to you

I know, Darlin', Things are beyond my control
And I know, Darlin’, Lightnin' in the bottle must go, now

I wanna make a song about a good time
To tell everybody why I feel so fine
I wanna sing a song about a good time
Now that you make my heart feel good
I wanna make a song about a good time
To tell you why I feel so fine
I wanna sing a song about a good time
You make me feel so good, Baby

What a good time, good time, Good time, good time
Ever since the day that I made you mine
What a good time, good time, Good time, good time
I never find it hard to write these lines

Oh man I’m changin’ fast
Ever since I met you
I don't even try and hide
The one I have inside
If this whole world could find
A fraction of this feelin'
Then there'd be peace and love
We'd all be singin' now

(Chorus)
(Bridge)
Only love can touch us now
It's all that matters anyhow
Only love can teach us now
Dreams must be defined

If You Look Into Your Heart

Written By: Cadet Mwankana

You could be the greatest king of the jungle
Even if they fight you, you’ll win the battle
You could be the sunlight shining through the darkness
You could light up the sky, make us walk fearless

I believe in you, you can make it
If you trust in you,

Cause if you look into your heart
You’ll find out the reason why you really are
A hero, a lion, a star
In the sky

You’re the little bit of hope that makes all dreams come true
You are the river that waters the valley and land

I can feel it, you’ll get it right
If you trust in you

Cause if you look into your heart
You’ll find out the reason why you really are
A hero, a lion, a star
In the sky

When I look into your eyes
I can see clearly
That you can fly
Through the sky
And shine
Like a star
In the sky
In the sky

Tell me that you want me

Written By: Julian Wilson

TELL ME THAT YOU LOVE ME

Got to tell you somethin' now - Baby you don't know
When you walked in through that door - I fell in love
Like a schoolboy, like a fool - You blew my fuse
So please tell me I can't lose.

Cause I just can not keep my feelin's hidden from you any more
And I'm burnin' with a fire out my control for sure
The flames are getting' higher
Oh baby I'm not lyin' to you

So tell me that you want me - Baby tell me
Tell me that you want me - Don't smile at me and turn your head
Don't tell me I don't matter - Uncertainty is killin' me
Don't tell me I don't matter now - Cause I can not live without you any more, No I can't!

Somethin's happenin' deep inside - You re-al-ise
You been caught with no disguise - Moment of truth
And your matador of love - Won't stand aside
You got no place left you can hide

Cause I just can not keep my feelin's hidden from you any more
And I'm burnin' with a fire out my control for sure
The flames are getting' higher
Baby I'm not lyin' to you

So tell me that you want me - Baby tell me, tell me now
Tell me that you want me - Don't leave me in this misery
This matters really matters - I can't live without you now
I can't live without you (now) - I can't live alone with-out your lovin' any more

I'm living now ? – I'm dyin' now !
Don't you try and tell me baby you don't understand
Tell me now - Tell me now – ow!
All this pain you put me through, but girl what can I do?
Just tell me now! ----

Cause I just can not keep my feelin's hidden from you any more
And I'm burnin' with a fire out my control
The flames are getting' higher
Oh baby I'm not lyin' to you

So tell me that you want me now - I really really love you girl
I can't live without you - Don't leave me in this misery
I can't live without you now - I can't live without you now
I can't live without you now - Don't leave me achin' hangin' on the line, Tell me now!

Freak

Written By: Jon Huffer

Freak

I’m under so much stress
In way over my head I thought, some fun would ensue
In a moment I said yes
Is there some place or someone, or any hope of rescue
But whatever I do all roads lead back to you, oh baby

My head is spinning around, my body feels so weak
There’s no sound, you make me freak

For God’s sake there’s nothing left to take, oh no, oh no no
You make me freak
There’s no doubt, you just freak me out

The honey trap caught me I had planned
No future beyond that one night
Black mail has me at your mercy
Thought you’d never again be in my sight, baby
What’s done is done now, it’s too late so which way do I go

My head is spinning around, my body feels so weak
There’s no sound, you make me freak

For God’s sake there’s nothing left to take, oh no, oh no no
You make me freak
There’s no doubt, you just freak me out

Rap…
I’m just a Neanderthal at the mercy of a femme fatale
Too late my lessons been learnt
Now all my bridges are burnt
Dammed if I do and dammed if I don’t
Anyway round I’m out for the count

Repeat chorus…

I want to fly

Written By: Stacy Thunes

I WANT TO FLY

HERE'S ME, WITHOUT YOU
GLIDING UP TO THE MOONLIGHT
HERE'S ME, WITHOUT YOU
SAILING OVER THE STARLIGHT

YOU THOUGHT THAT YOU OWNED ME
BUT YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW ME

I want to fly – Soaring up to the sky
I want to fly – Without you by my side
I want to fly – Flying higher and higher
I want to fly – to fly away without you by my side
DON'T NEED YOU AROUND

THERE'S YOU, WITHOUT ME
PINING UNDER THE MOONSHINE
THERE'S YOU, AND I AM NOWHERE AT ALL
I'M LOST IN THE STARSHINE

YOU WANT TO COME BACK TO ME
BUT YOU KNOW THAT YOU'VE LOST ME

I want to fly – Soaring up to the sky
I want to fly – Without you by my side
I want to fly – Flying higher and higher
I want to fly – to fly away without you by my side
DON'T NEED YOU AROUND

Song 4 U and Me

Written By: Cadet Mwankana

Song for U & Me

Vers I pray that you and I
Shake hands as friends
And I hope that One of us
Will always take the first step

Peace and love shall reign on earth

Ref: Mapendo ina pita maisha (Love is more than life)
Mapendo ina homba uruhma (Love requires grace/clemency)
Mungu ana pita maisha (God is more than life)

Vers 2 My dream is that none of us
Cares about colour of skin
And I hope that one of us
Will always take the first step

Turn away from pain and war

Ref: Mapendo ina pita maisha (Love is more than live)
Mapendo ina homba uruhma (Love forsake grace)
Mungu ana pita maisha (God is more than live)

Bon Papa

Written By: Cadet Mwankana

Bon Papa

Moninga asali elokote
Pona nini atiki biso
Elenge, na makasi na nzoto
Akeyi, atiki biso se boye

Soki yo nde obengaki ye
Limbisa masumu na ye
Ata soki yo obengaki ye
Limbisa mpe kaka masumu na ye

Bon papa
On ne t’oubliera pas
Où que tu sois
Prends soin de toi

Ata mabe mabe nini asala
Nani asalaka mabe te

Papa, Soki yo nde obengaki ye
Limbisa masumu ya mwana na yo
Ata soki yo obengaki ye
Limbisa mpe kaka masumu ya mwana na yo

Bon papa
On ne t’oubliera pas
Où que tu sois
Garde la paix en toi
Où que tu sois
Prends soin de toi
Que Dieu soit avec toi

--Englsh Version--

Our friend did nothing wrong in his live
Why did he leave us?
So young, so strong
He’s gone and left us alone

If you (God) called him
Forgive him
And even if you are not the one who called him
(Also) Forgive him too

Bon papa
We will not forget you
Wherever you are
Take care of you

Whatever evil he did
Cause no one is free of sin

Father (God), if you called him
Forgive your son
And even if you are not the one who called him
(Also) Forgive your son too

Bon papa
We will not forget you
Wherever you are
Keep the peace in your heart
Wherever you are
Take care of you
Let God be with you
