Lyrics

Come on

Written By: Just Mart

Ain’t nothing, that I try
Can turn away my eye
Madness of mankind
Seeks to pound thousand lives

Lethal vanities, such avidities
Do they mean what they mean to me
Contempt of others, dishonesty
Do they mean what they mean to me

If you feel it, show the wound, shout with me
If you mean it, rally round come with me

They blow, come on, trough, come on
My head, come on, come on, come on

Time after time, I will cry
So many people, starve to die
With heaven, seemingly blind
In spite of our lyric lines

Subserviences to social roles
Do they mean, they mean to me
Conformities of all kinds
Do they mean, they mean to me

If you feel it, show the wound, shout with me
If you mean it, rally round come with me

They blow, come on, trough, come on
My head, come on, come on, come on

Time

Written By: Just Mart

Time, mice of time gnaw life away
Time, mice of time come what come may
Tenderness your gave
Is what I’d like to save

Quit hold upon the past
Maybe little will last
Send me your love sometimes

Promise me you’ll wait for me
Promise me you’ll wait for me

Time, strength of time will make you bow
I mean time, time, time…time who can tell where Lord must go
Have we enough to spare
Really much for care

Highest hope is you will be
Standing close to me
Would you be my Penelope

Promise me you’ll wait for me
Promise me you’ll wait for me

Time, time, time, will time erase your love of me
Time, time will bring what we will see

Smother

Written By: Just Mart

If you want to be keeping your head into that sand
You will never seize chance to be true
If you think I am only talking ‘bout the branded
You’re wrong I am also talking ‘bout you

Keep on, keep on, keep on bothering you, keep on
They will keep on, keep on, keep on bothering you, keep on

Smother, these kinds
Of meanness out of envy
I’m sure enough, you know
That one man’s joy is not another man’s sorrow
Otherwise

Keep on, keep on, keep on bothering you, keep on
Keep on, keep on, they will keep on bothering you, keep on

Smother, chasing
These fiddles full of cruelty
One day, you’ll see
We always reap what we sow
Oh!

Keep on, keep on, keep on bothering you, keep on
Keep on, keep on, they will keep on bothering you, keep on
No-no, no-no-no…

Seize chance, in glaring
Smother, smother and be true
Seize chance, every time
Smother, smother and be true

No-no, no-no-no, tu du tu tu du, don’t do it, don’t deal with it (bis)

It took a long time

Written By: Just Mart

Before the time, we tried no let up in our song
Nothing was the same
At the time, remember, we were wrong
It looked like selfish game

It took a long time, it took a long time, it took a long time

Before the time, we got used to sing this song of two
Nothing sweet became
Probably some little things escaped our view
Is there anyone to blame

It took a long time, a long
It took a long time
It took a long time, to keep you along
It took a long time

Doo be doo, doo be doo, doo be doo

Love do love imperfectly so they say, so they say
So much sorrow and stormy days
Is there anyone to blame

It took a long time, a long
It took a long time
It took a long time, to keep you along
It took a long time

To keep you, to keep you along, to keep you, to keep you along
To keep you, to keep you along…

Know I try to be the same

Written By: Just Mart

Oh lately, found me drifting
It’s not easy, to see you falling
What a sad day, my sweet lady
I need you
Wanted some day to see that you and I
You and I, ‘ve come to be as one

Oh lately, found me thinking
It’s not easy, to see you crying
That’s a mayday, sweet lady
I love you
I wish one day will make that you and I
You and I, truly meet as once

Know I try to be the same
The same guy that you knew
Even if our love turned bad
That’s why I’m calling you

Know I try to be the same
The same guy that you knew
Even if our story made a change
That’s why I feel so good

Shakin' my body with U

Written By: Just Mart

Wild blow, baby does come and go
On your pillow, I need to tell you so
One way, then to realize
Not always shadow, but colourful rainbow

Hey, come on, dow dow dow dow dow dow
With you every time, every time I’ve got to go

Shakin’ my body in party baby
Shakin’ my body in party, I’ve been
With U I’m shakin’ my body in party baby
Shakin’, shakin’

I don’t mind, till baby you’re mine
I take it slow, indeed the real time to make a show
That day, I’ll surely do my best play
I tell you that, the thing is, don’t get low, never do below

Hey, come on, dow dow dow dow dow dow
With you every time, every time I’ve got to go

Shakin’ my body in party baby
Shakin’ my body in party, I’ve been
With U I’m shakin’ my body in party baby
Shakin’, shakin’

Shake with me baby baby baby…
I’m in a party party party, party party party, shake with me… ouh
Baby shake with me, shake with me baby, oh baby, with U sweety baby…
Oooh
Lala- lala, lala-la…

My love is true

Written By: Just Mart

My love is true
You’ll never feel so blue
You gotta believe, it’s the way I feel

Girl don’t be so shy
Every time I call, you seem to fear
I know some others treated you bad
Look at me baby, it’s quite, so clear

My love is true
You’ll never feel so blue – I wanna let you know
My love is true
You’ll never feel so blue - you gotta believe, it’s the way I feel

Said I wanna be your guy
Every single day, champagne you
Be with you or die
I’m the lover meant for you

My love is true
You’ll never feel so blue – I wanna let you know
My love is true
You’ll never feel so blue - you gotta believe, it’s the way I feel

I won’t ever make you, cry
Pleasure will flower, in a smile
So let us have, a try
When I’m in love, it’s for a while

My love is true
You’ll never feel so blue – I wanna let you know
My love is true
You’ll never feel so blue - you gotta believe, it’s the way I feel

I do, I do, be there, I do, I do, to champagne you
I do, I do, I do be there, I do, I do champagne you
You gotta believe, it’s the way I feel, you must believe it’s the way I feel
Please believe it’s the way that I feel, you must believe it’s the way I feel
My love is, time by time, day by day, day by day, day by day champagne you…

Fly, Butterfly

Written By: Just Mart

Fly, butterfly
Daytime is summertime
High to the sky
Sublime meantime
Somewhere on high, at last respite
Oh I feel despair but somehow I try

To win my pain – that’s the time
To keep my brain
I will win my pain – that’s the time
Forgive tearstain

Fly, butterfly
You’ve been trough hell and still never bitter
From a far, singing star
I can hear, sweet twitter
To relieve, fight to grieve

Oh, oh sometimes I give up, somehow I know not how, to make up mind

I will win my pain – that’s the time
To keep my brain
I will win my pain – that’s the time
Forgive tearstain
