Amplified Soul Lyrics

 

Amplify My Soul (Part 1)

 

Amplify my soul, electrify my world, gratify my love, rectify my weakness
Beautify my thoughts, magnify my desire, justify my dreams, satisfy my senses
Amplify my soul, intensify my impulses, identify my passion, quantify my ideals
Amplify my soul

I Couldn't Love You More

 

So many ways I want to tell you, the way I feel for you
Night and day I’m thinking of you, because my aim is true
Lost inside the rhythm, crazy for the love of you
It’s all I ever wanted. Babe you’ve got to know it’s true
I couldn’t love you more, I couldn’t love you more
I couldn’t love you more, baby I couldn’t love you more

 

Can’t contemplate a life without you, without the things you do
Every day my heart sings for you, for life‘s a dream come true
I found a road to freedom, all because the love of you
It’s all I ever wanted, baby you’ve got to know it’s true
I couldn’t love you more, I couldn’t love you more
I couldn’t love you more, I couldn’t love you more

 

From the beginning it was plain for me to see
You were the one, the one for me
It would have hurt so much if it was not to be
You were the one, the only one
I couldn’t love you more, I couldn’t love you more
I couldn’t love you more, couldn’t love you more
So many ways, all of my dreams, babe I want to tell you
Night and day, day and night, I couldn’t love you more

Rapture

 

My time is yours, your time is mine, we knew the deal when we got together baby
Right from the start you captured my heart, there’s no need to question how I feel
Rise with the sun, moving as one, A certain kind of something in the air
Caught in the spell, the moment I fell, you took me right round to love
Can't wait to start another day, we'll be laughing all the way

 

In the rapture of you. Taking me over, pulling me under, never let me go
Rapture of you. Feeling forever, moments of wonder never let me go
Rapture of you. Never let me go 

 

We're taking flight, into the light, far into the atmosphere
Wherever we go I surely know, this river flows to paradise
We're beautiful the way we are, and we live among the stars

 

Far above the world we’ll fly

 

Living for the love, for the love, for the love of you

Hands Up If You Wanna Be Loved

 

Hands up if you wanna be loved
Hands up ‘cos we wanna be loved

 

Walk me through it, I’ll talk you through it, blindfolded through the mine-field
Holler at me, I’ll holler back, unflustered through the changes
Now put your hands up
Hands up if you wanna be loved
Hands up ‘cos we wanna be loved
Hands up if you wanna be loved
Everybody sing yeah
Hands up if you wanna be loved
Hands up ‘cos we wanna be loved
Hands up if you wanna feel love

 

It feels so right, to be reaching out for you
A feeling so good, when you’re reaching out to me
We do what it takes, ‘cos we wanna be loved
There’s no denyin’, we got it all ya’ll
We got it all ya’ll. We got it all ya’ll. We’ve got it all 

 

Glad you’re back here, I gotcha back now
Intrusted, we got it pat down
Put it on me, I’ll give it to you back
Upgraded to the top line

 

Hands up if you wanna be loved
Hands up ‘cos we wanna feel love
Hands up if you wanna be loved
Let’s get it on, get it on

Hats (Make Me Wanna Holler)

 

You see them on the jazz cats, dancing to the hi hats
They wear them at the races, and graduating places
The people at the lido, wear them on the lie low
It is a must for the cowboys, city guys drivin’ in their toys

 

I got a hat for the rain, a hat full of rain
Got a hat that would take you back
I got a hat for the sun some just for fun
Hats are where it’s at
I got a hat with my name, one for the game
Another for the open sky
I got one that’s tall, one for the fall
And I tilt it when you pass me by

 

Lookin’ good baby, lookin’ real fine
Lookin’ good baby, so fine I want to make you mine
Makes me wanna holler
Make me wanna shout

 

There’s a sailor with a boater, a tailor with a bowler
Glamour girls on the beaches, as Halloween bewitches
On the streets of Durban bucket hats and turbans
The manor bride birdcage is causing quite an outrage

 

Writer: Jean-Paul Maunick / Richard Bull

 

 

 

Silver Shadow

 

Silver shadow
Silver shadow, a glowing shadow shining brightly for all to see

 

I remember gazing on this quiet night, the stars were bright as they could be
Wonderin' if things would ever go right and if there was a spot up there for me
Then one star got brighter by the minute
Strange that it seemed to have my name written in it
I reached for the star and it kissed me with its light
It made me cast a shadow that was silver and bright

 

Silver shadow, a glowing shadow shining brightly for all to see

 

I never had any real reason to thank my lucky stars
But now I've got a pretty good reason 'cause I know I'm gonna go far
I believe in magic, I really do
With all that's happened, it's got to be true
I cast a silver shadow from the kiss of the light
I knew that I was destined starting with tonight

 

Silver shadow, a glowing shadow shining brightly for all to see
Silver shadow, my future's shadow trying to tell me of the star I would be

 

Since I was chosen among the rest, I dedicate myself, I'm gonna be the very best
And my shadow forever silver will remain and the world will always remember my name

 

Silver shadow
A glowing shadow
Shining brightly
For all to see

 

Silver shadow, a glowing shadow shining brightly for all to see
Silver shadow, my future's shadow trying to tell me of the star I would be

 

Hey, yeah
Look at my shadow glow
Silver and wonderful sparkling thing
Look at my shadow glow
Think I'm gonna be a star
Look at my shadow glow
Glowin' so brightly, this wondrous thing
Look at my shadow glow
Look at my silver shadow

Deeper Still

 

Deeper I fall, and deeper still, deeper I fall, and deeper still

 

The way that you love me, I really can’t compare
And there’s no metaphor or simile, no analogy can take me there
There’s no way I can say it, at least not with words
You’re an ocean that fills up every line of this verse

 

I’m falling down, but it feels like flying
I hit the ground, but I won’t be cryin’
Can you imagine if we dived in underneath
Won’t you come and bathe in this ocean with me

 

Deeper than the fathoms to the ocean floor and deeper still
The way you love me

Deeper than the feelin’ that I knew before, and deeper still
Come on, I’m diggin it baby

 

The way that I see you, It’s always fresh in my mind
Round every corner than I turn around you’re the only face I find
There’s no way I would change this, it’s just what it’s supposed to be
You’re ocean that fills up every single inch of me

 

I’m falling down, but it feels like flying
I hit the ground, but I won’t be cryin’
Can you imagine if we dived in underneath
Won’t you come and bathe in this ocean with me

Something 'Bout July

 

What would you do if you were me? I caught a glimpse of what could be
I can't explain the way I feel, but I am certain that it’s real. It’s real
Forget tomorrow and love me now, abandoned dreams that that once belonged
There’s no more doubts inside my head tonight
When I didn't think that anything would ever turn out right

 

There’s something ‘bout July, she changed the scene all in one day
There’s something ‘bout July, I took to her right away
Something ‘bout July
Something wonderful about July

 

Just how all this has come to be, I don’t know how and I don’t know why, oh why?
I’m like a teenage driver at the lights, I just can’t wait, I just can’t wait to be movin’ on
Forget tomorrow and love me now, abandoned dreams that that once belonged
When I look back at the way it used to be
When I didn't think that anything would turn out right

 

I know it's only the beginning and time's not ever what it seems
Don’t want to shake this early feelin’, I feel that she is here to stay

 

July, July…
Something about that girl
July…
What would you do if you were me? Caught a glimpse of something that could be
Something about the way she makes me feel
She changed the scene all in one day
Something about her got me right away
Hey there girl listen…
Forget tomorrow and love me now

Day Or Night

 

Day or night, we can dance into the silence
Day or night, we can shine out loud
And I want to loose myself inside this feelin’
The kind of feelin’ that you get when the pain has gone
And I want to loose myself inside this feelin’
The kind of feelin’ that you get when you look into the sun

 

Look into the sun
When you look into the sun
Look into the sun

 

Day or night, we can bloom into violets
Day or night, we can taste the rains
And I want to loose myself inside this feelin’
The kind of feelin’ that you get …
And I want to loose myself inside this feelin’
The kind of feelin’ that you get when you look into the sun
Look into the sun
(Ad libs)
Sunlight

 

Jean-Paul Maunick / Matthew Cooper

 

 

 

Another Way

 

In the beginning, all we know, is what we’re told
And so we go along with it
Time gives us reason, to choose our thoughts and rate the costs
And question what we’ve been permitting
As the penny drops, our stomachs turn when we learn
How much wrong has gone on as good
But if we measure what we gain for every pain
Lessons then better understood

 

Oooh let us try levelling the playing fields
Aaah surely we can repair that broken wheel
Hmmmn if we stay the same old way how can we heal
Ooooh, Let us try another way
Another way

 

Oh, it’s so short sighted to stand against being united
Confusing the masses; Dividing the classes
Stop being so drastic. Choose to put things right
Oooh, better than the way it is

 

Another way... (Better than the way it is, Better than the way it is.....(repeat))
We have got to try

 

Writer: Carleen Anderson / Jean-Paul Maunick / Matthew Cooper

 

 

 

I See The Sun

 

I'm not the average kind of girl
If you could take a peek inside my head you'd wonder
Always full of thought, always trying to figure out the very meaning of life
I go from day to day, and yeah I have some bad days
You're probably not a stranger to them too
But more and more I get a feeling, an awakening, its unexplainable
and it takes the fear away

 

I see the sun, it shines a little brighter today  
‘cos I decided to find the peace inside, rearrange my mind
I find a freedom when I try to see that there's more to life
It helps me make it through the day…

 

I'm so sensitive, so emotional
I let the sadness creep inside sometimes
I lose myself in doubt, always trying to figure out the meaning of my life
I'm only human and I've got to know those days are ok
There's a blessing called a point of view
If I allow it to relax my vibe and take it light
I don't have to be afraid, no, no, no

 

Ooooh there's more...
(I feel the sun on my windowpane and it feels so good, yeah)
I see the sun it shines a little brighter
More…

Never Known A Love Like This

 

Stay with me a while, let’s take a little time
I want to let you know what I feel inside
Now that we can choose where we go from here, it’s alright
Yesterday has gone, we learnt to let it go
Now we know that life will never be the same
Tomorrow we’ll rise to see the perfect light, it’s alright
I can feel it in my head, I can feel if in my heart
Every little thing you do let’s me know its true
Never known a love like this
I guess that it was meant to be
We never planned it, somehow we found it
Never known a love like this
It’s taken such a hold of me
I just got lucky, so glad I found you
Never known a love like this

 

Come and flow with me, to a love supreme
We found a paradise that is deep and true
We can blow as leaves tended by the wind, it’s alright
We can find a way through the Joy and pain
There’s no darkened sky we can’t rise above
See the brightest sun that ever has shone
It’s alright
I can see it in your eyes, yes I feel it in your touch
Everything you do let’s me know its true

 

Never known a love like this
I guess that it was meant to be
We never planned it, somehow we found it
Never known a love like this
It’s taken such a hold of me
I just got lucky, so glad I found you
Never known a love like this

The Hands Of Time

 

I can talk about it now, now that the storm has gone
I know the hurt lingers on, back then I couldn’t stop, ‘cos I did not know how

Maybe someday you’ll look back with the understanding why we do the things we do
It’s always easier to see when your soul has grown and time sets you free

 

Oh I wish that I could turn back the hands of time
Oh I wish that I could stop start over again
Oh I wish that I could turn back the hands of time
‘Cos it’s only now that I can understand
Where I went wrong

 

I was searching for myself, though I did not know it at the time
You had put your faith in me, but my feet were barely on the ground
Maybe someday we’ll sit and talk
‘Bout the things we did and what we didn’t do
It will be easier to see
When your pain has flown and time sets you free

More…

 

Writer: Jean-Paul Maunick / Matthew Cooper

 

 

 

The Hands Of Time

 

Stop running away, stop running away

 

Hey child don’t be afraid of showing what you feel
Cut away your pride, and show the world that you’re real
Say, why push and shove and kill the love
What’s going on inside, ‘cos it’s keeping you, it’s keeping you
it’s keeping you from being loved, being loved

 

These tears of rage can be replaced
A new born age be in its place
If you’re willing to face, face the truth now
The answers are within you
Like posters on the subway walls
They’re looking right back, looking right back at you now
They’re echoed in mirrors in endless halls
Larger than life you’re staring at yourself

 

Hey tell me if you had the chance, if you had the chance to be any other place other than here
Please tell me where we should go now
Oh it’s a new start, it’s a new day
All you’ve got to do is to choose
Where will you go, where will you go, where do you go from here

 

It’s all there, it’s all there right before you
Time to escape your future lies
