Guerra (War)

Written By: Julissa

(Verse 1)
Una madre con orgullo wo,wo
Al ver a su hijo vestido de militar
ella pensaba que nunca se iria
pero la guerra lo llamo

La despedida fue mortal wo,wo
Sus ojos con una tristesa
Arrepentida ella esta wo,wo
Por dejarlo ir al ejercito

No hay guerra que traiga la paz ye ye ye ye ye
No hay paz que traiga la guerra wowowowowo
No hay guerra que traiga la paz
No hay paz que traiga la querra

(Verse 2)
Pasaron uno cuantos dias wo,wo
ni una llamada recibio
y la familia preocupada wo,wo
resando que regrese pronto

Bajo a comprar el periodico wowowowowo
Abrio la pagina numero tres
y vio un muchacho muerto y torturado
la foto ensenaba el nombre de el

Written By: Julissa Gomez, Mario German, Jmaes Shepard

Esta fiesta nos esta encendiendo
Y desde lejos nos estan mirando
Que les importa si nos ven besando
Por lo menos los dos nos amamos

Tengo sed de ti
Quiero amarte hasta el fin
Me enciendes de fuego bailando asi
Siento todo tu sudor

Tu bailar me esta volviendo loca
Y de repente siento mariposas
Que les importa si nos ven besando
Por lo menos los dos nos amamos

Dame Tu Amor

Written By: Julissa Gomez, Mario German, James Shepard

Verse 1
Voy escuchando tus latidos
me das amor y mucha paz
quiero que sepa el mundo entero
que nuestro amor siempre estara

Estoy en tus brazos mi amor
no dejo de pensar en ti
el corazon se me acelera
me vuelve loca tu amor

Dame tu amor
te quiero mas que nunca
Ay! piensalo

Que quiero ser tu duena
Ay! dimelo
Si sientes de a de veras este amor

Verse 2
Mi mundo sin ti no es nada
sin ti yo no puedo vivir
quiero que sepas que te amo
que tu eres mi felicidad

Tus ojos me dicen te quiero
tus labios no me dicen nada
no quiero seguir adivinando
si me quieres dimelo ya.

Hook x2

Quiero morder,besar tu piel,
quiero amarte hasta el final
dejame entrar en tu mente
dejame saber lo que piensas

Hook x2
