Biography

MAOR is an incredibly gifted musician. The very first time I heard his music I was stunned by his originality and I immediately fell in love with his songs. His passion and energy are heard and felt so clearly on his cd, but in his live performance I had the opportunity to actually see that the passion and energy are completely authentic."

"MAOR is a true artist."

Lyrics

Amazing

Written By: MAOR

Even the hardest day
I still believe the rain will come
and wash away this pain from me
Cause I still believe in love.

And I don't know why you left
after all the years that we've
shared
I don't want feel this pain
I don't want feel this pain no more

So you choose to run and hide from me, But deep in my heart I know
That you'll always be yes you'll always be
Cause you are Amazing
You are Amazing to me
Nobody told you that lately,
Nobody tried to feel you're pain
You are Amazing

The year goes by and you're still on my mind A thousand mills want change my love for you
cause I still Believe you'll come back
Now friends keep telling me to try
to be a stronger man
But how can I forget my love
I wish I'd never met you at all

So you choose to run and hide from me, But deep in my heart I know that you'll always be
yes you'll always be
Cause you are Amazing
You are Amazing to me
Nobody told you that lately,
Nobody tried to feel you're pain
You are Amazing
You are Amazing

Jump

Written By: MAOR

In the middle of the night I was kept away By the voices of love the voices care and I was locked in a cage but I didn't understand
How can a person like you could do it again, In the middle of the night I saw your face and you told me that everything is going to change
Not before I'll jump

In the middle of the night
I was running away to a better place a place I could stay, It might took me a while to realize that you are the one I've always loved in the middle of the night I saw your face and you told me that everything is going to change not before I'll jump

Oh baby jump for joy if you can
oh baby jump to me if you really wanna make it
Cause baby I'll be there
But if you still haven't found what you're looking for
I still gonna have faith in

So the moment has come we hit the ground there were flushes of light flushes of love you hold my hand and you broke the spell
only time will tell how much heartache and pain in the middle of the night I saw your face
In the middle of my life you broke the spell
Just because I jump

Oh baby jump for joy if you can
oh baby jump to me if you really wanna make it
Cause baby I'll be there
But if you still haven't found what you're looking for
I still gonna have faith in

Jump for Joy
Jump for life
Jump to me
Jump to the sky
Jump baby jump
Just because I jump

Caught In A Flame

Written By: MAOR

Hey you there
something got you scared
We've come along way
for you to throw it all like that
So we've got a plan
But we're heading no where
Bbut something is telling me to stay but how long can we keep this way?

You caught in a flame
you stuck in the middle
you're caught in a net
and no one can hear you
You lost in the game
and that's quiet ok
it's like you almost
so don't miss the train

So we're running out of time
trying to survive some how
we've learned all the little game
but some how I'm not impressed
So how about a little sign from you
something to keep us moving trough you wanna have it all
But nothing ever comes along

Yoo caught in a flame
you stuck in the middle
you're caught in a net
and no one can hear you
You lost in the game
But that's quiet ok
it's like you almost
So don't miss the train

Hey you there
something got you scared tonight
you've come along way
so come on be a man
so come lets kiss some ass.....

You caught in a flame
you stuck in the middle
you're caught in a net
and no one can hear you
You lost in the game
But that's quiet ok
it's like you almost
So don't miss the train

A Fine Day

Written By: MAOR

Look at me I'm helpless for love
Clouds above don't let them bring you down
Home is far like the stars
I'm here don't say good bye

It's a fine day to go out side
It's a fine day to walk side by side
It's a fine day to learn who we are
It's a fine day such a fun day
to fall in love

Look at us we're hopeless to change
Words can kill be careful what you say
Show me real I'm near
Trust in me come fly with me

It's a fine day to go out side
It's a fine day to walk side by side
It's a fine day to learn who we are
It's a fine day such a fine day
to fall in love

Time will show you how
Time will tell you why
Home is far like the stars
I'm near come closer now

It's a fine day to go out side
It's a fine day to walk side by side
It's a fine day to learn who we are
It's a fine day such a fune day
to fall in love.....

Crazy (Maybe)

Written By: MAOR

Maybe I'm dreaming or maybe it's true, Things that we wanted in life didn't come true, I know I'm not the one but still I'm trying my best
Life has a funny way to show you why we're here.

I'm going crazy so crazy for leaving me this way
I'm going crazy so crazy for this love has no name
Maybe I'm crazy slightly madly inside burns a flame
I'm going crazy still crazy like a child in the rain

All of my life I've tried doing what's right, But nothing much happened yet Just heartaches and some fun I used to hide it well And go to extremes, Now that I'm all grown up I'd better believe in my dreams.

I'm going crazy so crazy for leaving me this way
I'm going crazy still crazy for this love has no name
Maybe I'm crazy slightly madly inside burns a flame
I'm going crazy still crazy like a child in the rain

Please don't walk away
I still need some love and care
Please just stay another day
I don't want this game this love and hate Just tell me why your heart is so cold

I'm going crazy (maybe) so crazy for leaving me this way
I'm going crazy (Maybe) still crazy for this love has no name
Maybe I'm crazy (Maybe) slightly madly inside burns (for you baby) a flame
I'm going crazy, I'm going crazy (Maybe) like a child in the rain

Father forgive me for I have sin
I wasn't strong enough
the day you decided to leave

How To Show love

Written By: MAOR

All those promises about a new tomorrow to come
I've been waiting for that my hole fuxxking life, So now what?
Don't expect from me to show you some respect
After all these years you throw dirt in my eyes and lies, They died

So hear we are you and me heading to no where
You said I look pale and I had nothing to say again
Don't expect from me to show you some respect
I just wish you all the best in the world my darling
Wish all the best in the world

But I do know how to show love
But I do know how to show love
Yes I do know how to show love

So please don't try to call me or write to me
Do you think I lied when I said I'll never come home again
All those years you fed us love and hate, How cruel is to play with a child's mind.

I had to run away start all over again I had to lie and cheat
I guess I was somebody else
This is my cause and effect
This is my pain
This is what's left

But I do know how to show love
Yes I do know how to show love
Yes I do know how to show love
Yes I do know.....

All those promises about a new tomorrow to come
I've been waiting for that my hole fuxxing life....
