Lyrics

Where You Are

Written By: Rafael Malik

Where You Are

On your mind
In your heart
In your heart
By your side
As you strive
To reach the stars
I want to breathe
In the same air as you
No matter where you are
There with you

Not enough words to say
The way that I feel is just too strong
If your love ain’t right
I want to be wrong
So baby make your move
But don’t go moving too far
I want to be where you are

Mountains high
Valleys low
Let me know
In the sun
Rain or sleet
In the snow
London bridge
Prague, Paris
Anywhere
In the burbs
On the block
I don’t care

Not enough words to say
The way that I feel is just too strong
If your love ain’t right
I want to be wrong
So baby make your move
But don’t go moving too far
I want to be where you are

Cool Breeze

Written By: Rafael Malik

Cool Breeze

Get out my head
Passage ways
Open roads
Four leaf clovers
Luck day
Get out my head
Constant thought
You’ve become
My obsession
And I’m undone

And waiting for paths of roses
Where the silent moments
Feel like home and
{Chorus} I’m waiting for
Waterfalls where there’s no
Track of time
At all but sunshine
I’m waiting for all the promise
That I feel between us
And hoping that that day
Is comfy as a cool breeze in the shade

Get out my head
Perfect pace
Yellow butterflies that flutter
Around your face
Get out my head
So serene yet temporary
I’m anxious to see
What you bring
{Chorus}

And, ooh I hope I meet your expectations
That I never bring you down
I hope I take you up to the clouds
That your voice fills with sound
I’m searching for forgiveness
From my past mistakes
And I think you and I can win this
I’ll give whatever it takes to see you
In your rarest form

{Chorus}

Touch

Written By: Rafael Malik

Touch

Baby, take all of me
I need to feel you
My love will will you
Into something so emotional
Because my world to be
Revolves around you
And all the sounds you
Choose to make when just let go

When we touch
Everything around us just stops
And I can feel our bodies drop
Down below the bedroom
Where we’re making love
When we touch
I hear all the things you can’t say
And nothing in this world
Can take that away
It was sent to us from above

So baby take all of me
I will fulfill you
I’ll keep it real you
Are stealing my breath from me
This is our fantasy
Anticipated
And now that we’ve waited
We can find truth within this dream

When we touch
Everything around us just stops
And I can feel our bodies drop
Down below the bedroom
Where we’re making love
When we touch
I hear all the things you can’t say
And nothing in this world
Can take that away
It was sent to us from above
