Marlow believes music shouldn't just be a set of notes... "Music should communicate; it should be a portal into the past, present, and future." Their aim in composing is to put together the words and sounds that get a theme across, a theme important and relevant to everyday life...

Biography

In the campus of the University of Miami, the band came into existence. Initially, its members were solely from U.M. (where most of the band studied music engineering or music performance)… Eventually the group branched out, searching throughout south Florida for the best and most diverse talent. Today, the band is composed of musicians from eight nationalities.

Lyrics

A Million Years

Written By: Marlow

We’re part of the song in this eternal sky we roam…
I would live a million years, if only you were my all…

I give you my sunsets, my nights and every second before.
Clocks remind me of time(aa), but with you, they, don’t move at all…

I admit with every thought,
in your arms I fall.
Every inch of my very soul is mine but always yours.
I admit with every thought,
in your arms I fall.
Every inch of my very soul is mine but always yours.

If you give me a lifetime,
we will have time, I know…
But even a million years,
is not enough…
just not enough for your love…

SOLO

If you give me a lifetime,
we will have time, I know…
But even a million years,
is not enough…
just not enough for your love…

I admit with every thought,
in your arms I fall.
Every inch of my very soul is mine but always yours.
I admit with every thought,
in your arms I fall.
Every inch of my very soul is mine but always yours.

Sweat

Written By: Marlow

Hey listen, there’s not a minute to lose
Are you in the game or is the game in you?
Do you compromise or do you go all out?
Play to stay or stay in the shadows…

I can tell you’re scared, no less…
I can tell you’re starting to sweat

Hey listen, are you prepared
For A physical emotional truth or dare
You know my strength you’ve seen my stats
But worst, I know, and you know that

I can tell you’re scared, no less…
I can tell you’re starting to sweat

When the centrifuge spins for a while…
Can’t stand the heat, walk out

SOLO

I can tell you’re scared, no less…
I can tell you’re starting to sweat

Chrysler Lebaron

Written By: Marlow

I walk in the club with nothing to lose… I remember the times back then; back then.

When I first came to this country when life was a gift this land gave to me.
When Pepsi was the new drink I had, in between English and my dad’s three jobs.

You’ve heard the saying, the sun came up, but it didn’t just come up – it blew up
And in its rays I found, my path, encouraged by the dreams of this great land.

But, yes, I remember our first home, in the middle of Mami, where things got rough…
People did what they could to survive, surely if they did they’d be prepared to fly.

-CHORUS-

From the challenges come the lion’s roars, when you look inside and your spirit wakes up.
When you find it, don’t let it go; for the rhythm of your life is dictated by your soul…

Let me tell you about the first car we had, it was a Chrysler Lebaron of the year 85;
Way past its prime, I guess like us, with a faulty engine and a few bulletholes…

It wasn’t glamorous but it took us to school, after a few tune-ups, well more than a few,
Its life seemed to end, but it lived for us, though old and battered, it never gave up…

-CHORUS-

So to me the Chrysler is the symbol, of the sweat and the blood that it took to get up.
Of the good and the bad that was in our path, of the darkness and light that we had to pass…

And so I talk to you the forgotten soul, in 6 billion people it’s easy to get lost…
But the talent in you, no one else has – use it for good and your life won’t pass…

And so walk in the club with nothing to lose, walk for the life that hard times taught you
Walk without fear, God is with you, but walk today, you got no excuse.

-CHORUS-

When I sing, it releases my soul, when I walk I know that I’m free.
Without the pain of what was before, I wouldn’t know how to live…
I walk… I walk… My generation walks, like a tiger that’s been unleashed.
And the suffering and the pain that’s afflicted this game is now just history…
We walk…We walk… How do we walk? How do we walk?
I want to hear without any fear…

We walk in the club with nothing to lose,
We remember the times back then; back then.

The Street Sage

Written By: Marlow

Slow the progression, slow the radio. We are living in a one way street, nonstop.
The street sage walks by talking to all. A group gathers to hear, his wisdom.
And they ask him about politics, about the economy, about our kids;
About this fast-paced world that’s about to turn around, and away we go.

Yeah Yeah, Yeah Yeah …Watch our for that new generation
The informed generation… (that new generation)
The tech-savvy generation… (that new generation)
The post-oil generation... (that new generation)

It’s always more complicated then it seems, yet is so easy to criticize.
The street sage sings better yourselves – politics reflects the love we lack.
Listen, he said, “We all have faults to mend.”
But don’t try to gain the world, you’ll get shot… Live smart to live long…

-CHORUS-

The life we lead is hectic, no doubt. But tomorrow will be just fine. X2

There’s a difference between right and wrong, once you differentiate the two;
People will truly love you.
The street sage walks by, “Where are you going,” he is asked.
“Man, if I knew that, I wouldn’t be here… I’d be closer to there.”

-CHORUS-

The life we lead is hectic, no doubt. But tomorrow will be just fine. X2

Vives

Written By: Marlow



Tengo la vida en ti amor.
Donde estas estare yo.

Cuando yo naci, naci cuando te vi, pues tu mirada me envolvio.
Te he buscado por aqui, por alla y por Paris … en sueños y en cuadros de Picaso

Dime si tu vives , como siempre vivio esa cancion.
Dime si tu vives , como siempre vivio esa cancion.

En tu cara mire, la perfecta mujer… Y la fragancia de fruta fresca respire.
Que diga el interior que toda gota de sudor… es llamada que me la llevo, y me la llevo yo

Dime si tu vives , como siempre vivio esa cancion.
Dime si tu vives , como siempre vivio esa cancion.

Me enamore de Carito cuando era niňo… con ese amor latino en la tierra del olvido
Como tu no hay dos y le pedi a papadio… que estuvieras en Santa Marta o en el Roc de mi Pueblo

Dime si tu vives , como siempre vivio esa cancion.
Dime si tu vives , como siempre vivio esa cancion.
Dime si tu vives , como siempre vivio esa cancion.
Dime si tu vives , como siempre vivio esa cancion.

Tengo la vida en ti amor.
Donde estas estare yo.

Dime si tu vives , como siempre vivio esa cancion.
Dime si tu vives , como siempre vivio esa cancion.
Dime si tu vives , como siempre vivio esa cancion.

Dime si tu vives , como siempre vivio esa cancion.
Dime si tu vives , como siempre vivio esa cancion.
O Dime, O Dime O Dime, O Dime, O Dime
O Dime, O Dime Si vives esa cancion.

Revolution

Written By: Marlow

What’s the fire in our heads, or dreams when we sleep?
What makes us wake from bed, or drives us when we speak?
What’s tomorrow except not today, is it hope, for us to begin?
Is it calling, or is earth just turning and that’s just how it is?

Do we know the ground, where we walk?
Where seconds make us turn and change where we end up?
I hear the sounds of the nations fade into oblivion of thought in a global context X2
When I see that, a new morning exists, I know my prayers were answered while I sleep… And the choir sings

The world is a different place when you stand next to me. His will, His strength is all we need…

If the earth stops, we’ll still go… If the moon crashes down, lets pick up soil and dirt, and rise up off the ground.
If the earth stops, we’ll still go… If the moon crashes down, lets pick up sand and stone, nothing is bringing us down…

SOLO

What’s tomorrow except not today, is it hope, for us to begin?
Is it calling, or the earth is just turning and that’s just how it is?

Now we walk paving the ground…for Revolutions that propels our feet as that wind creates new sound
And in the mix the nations sing loud in a unified voice for a global purpose… X2
When I see that, a new morning exists, I know my prayers were answered while I sleep… And the choir sings….
