Transatlantic RPM Lyrics

 

Lowdown

 

Baby's into runnin' round
Hanging with the crowd
Putting your business in the street talking out loud
Saying you bought her this and that
And how much you done spent
I swear she must believe it's all heaven sent
Hey boy, you better bring the chick around
To the sad, sad truth, the dirty lowdown

 

(Whooooo, I wonder, wonder, wonder, wonder who)
Taught her how to talk like that
(Whooooo, I wonder, wonder, wonder, wonder who)
Gave her that big idea

 

Nothing you can't handle, nothing you ain't got
Put the money on the table and drive it off the lot
Turn on that ole lovelight and turn a maybe to a yes
Same old schoolboy game got you into this mess
Hey son, better get on back to town
Face the sad old truth, the dirty lowdown

 

(Whooooo, I wonder, wonder, wonder, wonder who)
Put those ideas in your head
(Whooooo, I wonder, wonder, wonder, wonder who)

 

Come on back down earth, son
Dig the low, low, low, low lowdown

 

You ain't got to be so bad got to be so cold
This dog eat dog existence sure is getting old
Got to have a Jones for this Jones for that
This running with the Joneses boy
Just ain't where it's at
You gonna come back around
To the sad, sad truth, the dirty lowdown

 

(Whooooo, I wonder, wonder, wonder, wonder who)
Got you thinking like that boy
(Whooooo, I wonder, wonder, wonder, wonder who)

 

(I wonder, wonder, wonder, wonder who)
(Say whooooo, I wonder, wonder, wonder, wonder who)
Ooooooh look out for that lowdown
That dirty, dirty, dirty, dirty lowdown
(Whoooo I wonder, wonder, wonder, wonder who, ohh, ohh)
Got you thinking like that

Everything We Are

 

Everything that we are
We are, we are

 

Everything that we heard
All the things that was said
Every song that gave us our own direction
That's who we are

 

Everything that we are
We are, we are

 

Every step that we take
All the days of our lives
What we choose to keep inside our minds
That's who we are

 

(Incognito, Lucky)
With a transatlantic revolution standard
Stand for something or fall now get involved y'all
Write it on the wall get involved, problem solve and evolve on this third rock revolving round the sun
Every one it's our call to rise, realise, we arrived, we alive, life right before your eyes don't blink believe the lies, don't sleep they need disguises the weak they seem surprised so we just open eyes and believe and keep climbing
Stars begin aligning reminder to keep moving with the earth's minded
I'm sure you got beliefs but first consider peace
Next remember music is best when you release
Yup you got beliefs but first consider peace
Next remember music is best when you release your soul

 

The world needs to go to rehab, I see that
Plenty of problems, can't depend on Obama, we're either fighting for honour, religion or something the problem is fear, got to break that step back relay the facts, dust off the vinyl, and search through the 8 tracks sonic history no this ain't a mystery
Jimi, Marvin, Michael, yeah they all gave the gift to me, Lucky-Incognito bridge the gaps for you all to see, Seven seas Atlantic and we travelling eternally, Seven seas Atlantic and we travel to eternity

 

You got beliefs but first consider peace
Next remember music is best when you release
Yep you got beliefs but first consider peace
Next remember music is best when you release your soul

1975

 

He said goodbye to the Cannonball when Curtis Jackson was yet to crawl
He had a photo of a Gran Torino from Ohio on the wall
He got deeper into the sound when the big debate was Watergate
Marlena and Roberta made him feel like makin' love

 

He remembers
The boogie brought down the house
The DJs turned it out
1975
His surrender
Was total and complete
Down to his dancin' feet
And he gave it up for love

 

Santana played with the winds of fire and the way of the world became his hearts desire
He met a girl freckles on her face they found a place for the summer
This was a time of space and rhapsody his hair was long lord knows the sound was funky
Herbie and Stevie held the keys to his fantasies

 

He remembers
The boogie brought down the house
The DJs turned it out
1975
His surrender
Was total and complete
Down to his dancin' feet
And he gave it up for love

 

Wasn't gravity that kept him there
But the music and the magic in the air

 

He remembers
The boogie brought down the house
The DJs turned it out
1975
His surrender
Was total and complete
Down to his dancin' feet
And he gave it up for love

Your Sun My Sky

 

What is left for us to say between hello and goodbye
Any day now you'll close the door, and walk away
I'll be picking through the pieces and wondering how it came to this
If things don't go the way you want it
Well that's the way it goes

 

(Bridge)
These photographs remind me
Of all the things I said
And the promises I made you
On the day that we first met
But ain't that just like you baby
Ain't that just like you
Ain't that like you

 

Used to be your sun in my sky
It's all over and the days go by
Used to be your sun in my sky
It ain't been easy to slowly watch you go

 

I wonder if you know just what you're doin' to me
Knowing what we've been through before, what am I say
You've been acting strangely lately, so far away yet you're next to me
When things are not the way they should be
Gotta know when to let it go

 

(Bridge)…

Used to be your sun in my sky
It's all over and the days go by
Used to be your sun in my sky
It ain't been easy to slowly watch you go

 

You been doing me wrong
But I'd have you back if it were mine to choose
You been doing me wrong
But I'd still have you back if it were mine to choose
Used to be your sun in my sky
It's all over and the days go by
Used to be your sun in my sky
It ain't been easy to slowly watch you go

 

Used to be your sun in my sky
Till the clouds came over and the night set in
Used to be your sun in my sky
It ain't been easy to slowly watch you go, oh no

Line In The Sand

 

(CHORUS)
Let's draw a line in the sand
Now that we both understand
Let's draw a line in the sand
We can't go on this way
Hurting each other everyday

 

Now I just wanna cry
When I think of the past
And the way it used to be
Now you question my love
And you talk out loud
Dragging the night into my day

 

I want to give you so much more,
But I don't know just where I stand anymore

 

(CHORUS)…

 

You took me so high
And I showed you my heart
I thought we had it all
I used to believe
Everything that you said
Then you turned my love away

 

I've heard these promises before
And I don't want to play this game anymore

 

(CHORUS)…

 

Gone is the love
Where is the love?
It's time for changes

 

(CHORUS)…

Gotta

 

Uh huh, oh yeah, Mmmmmmmm yeah
I need some rest from all the stress,
A…quiet repose…oh yeah
Come wipe my tears and ease my fears,
And…bring me some hope…oh yeah

 

Please sit beside me,
Might need you to guide me,
Got my own light inside me,
It's just dim right now

 

I just don't remember how to smile,
Been feelin' this way for a while
Oooo child

 

And the small steps seem like miles
And everything just seems so final
Like before I start I'm finished,
No dreams, no wishes
Always coming in last
But the hope still holds fast
So I'm looking for that North star, that sunshine, that full moon's light
To lead me through these cloudy days, these dark nights
And I gotta hold tight
So…can you be that open heart, that shoulder that friend?
Would you be that open heart, that shoulder that friend?
Gotta see this to the end,
Gotta see my light again,
Gotta…gotta…yeah

 

(Hook)

 

Please sit beside me,
Might need you to guide me,
Got my own light inside me,
But this ole' world just brings me down

 

Think I just can't remember how to smile,
And I been feelin' this way for a while
Oooo child

 

So can you be that open heart, that shoulder that friend?
Will you be that open heart, that shoulder that friend?

 

Gotta see this to the end,
Gotta see my light again,
Gotta…gotta…yeah
Gotta…gotta…yeah

Let's Fall In Love Again

 

Don't know what you want me to do
but I don't want to fight about it baby
Even though I know our loves true
We kind of lost the feeling maybe
It's not your fault or mine, we keep wasting our time both reprimanding
and demanding
It hurts me I won't lie
can't we give one more try
what we need is a little understanding

 

Don't turn around baby don't you doubt
Don't walk away cause we can work it out
Baby we've been here before
Even closer to that door.
Baby kiss me let's fall in love again
Come closer now cause i don't want to fight
I can think of better ways that we can spend the night
Baby we've been here before
Even closer to that door
Baby kiss me let's fall in love again

 

Hey girl come tell me everything
You feel inside
There's no wrong and no right when we fight just our pride
Baby kiss me let's fall in love again

 

I'm no angel neither are you
Girl,l we've both got history yeah
Gotta stop rehashing the past and talk about what future we see yeah
Yeah sometimes we'll disagree
That's just the way life can be
But it doesn't mean that we can't live together happily.
Wanna spend my life with you
Yes i will if you want to
Baby please listen cause the words i say are true

 

Don't walk away cause we can work it out
Baby we've been here before
Even closer to that door.
Baby kiss me let's fall in love again
Come closer now cause i don't want to fight
I can think of better ways that we can spend the night
Baby we've been here before
Even closer to that door
Baby kiss me let's fall in love again

 

Hey girl come tell me everything
You feel inside
There's no wrong and no right when we fight just our pride
Baby kiss me let's fall in love again

 

So just kiss me, let's fall in love again.

 

Why don't we do it all again baby

 

yeah yeah....

The Song

 

Doesn't it just seem unfair, sometimes what you thought was there
Turns into something new
In life's ever-changing scheme, I'm your ever-constant thing
And you can believe that I'll always love you
No matter what we do or say, world's gonna turn around anyway
And autumn leaves will turn to brown
In life's little ups and downs, when so-called friends just can't be found
You can depend on me when I say

 

Remember way back in the day, I would sing and you would play
We didn't have a penny to our names
Oh I would give back everything to have that feeling
When we were the song and that was everything
We're still connected, unaffected by the hands of time
Oh you can play and I will sing, we can weather anything
Bring it on, bring it on

Put A Little Lovin' In Your Heart

 

All is fine in the warm sunshine
But here we are together and it's London in December
Oh baby
Close to you with a love so true
No I can't remember a feeling so good no I never

 

I'm so glad that I have you in my life, it's the real thing
Nothing compares to someone who cares
No matter what the seasons may bring

 

Put a little lovin' in your heart
Keeping together what is real
Put a little lovin' in your heart
Baby don't stop the way that you make me feel

 

Wake me up if I close my eyes
Need your touch to remind me, we're the stars of the story
Believe me
This love you'll find is one of a kind
I knew then when I told you that I'd make you mine when I met you

 

You're all I ever wanted
You're all I need

 

I know that this is how
Things should be

All Of My Life

 

Good morning my early bird
I see you've brought a chorus to amaze me, serenade me
It's dawning, whistle down the darkness
Introduce me to a new horizon

 

(Chorus)…
All of my life, all of my days
Waiting for this love to be coming through
The kind that will never turn it's back on you
All of my life, all of my days
Been waiting for this love to be coming through
The kind that will never turn it's back on you

 

Suddenly surrounding me
This love clearly sent to set me free
Take hold my soul and let it be

 

Come calling my early bird
Happiness is close at hand
And won't forsake me, he understands me
It's morning, I smile into the pale blue sky above me for love's in season

 

(Chorus)…

Life Ain't Nothing But A Good Thing

 

Searching
What you cannot find if you ain't got the feeling
Sailing through this life always pretending
Living a lie won't even get you by
Searching
So easy when you get inside the feeling
And though you know this world can be demanding
Living life you can go beyond the sky so high

 

[HORN RIFF]…
Life ain't nothin' but a good thing
Good thing
Life ain't nothin' but a good thing
Take the ride
Be thankful for what you've got

 

Gotta keep searching
It's not to late for us to find a meaning
Although from time to time we keep forgetting
Living a lie won't even get you by
Searching
Until you find the spark your soul is needing
And you always try to keep the fires burning
Living life you can go beyond the sky so high

 

We all need little miracles in our lives
From time to time to help us on our way
(We all need miracles / we all need miracles)
When life gets you down
Gotta keep on, keep on pushin' on

 

Life ain't nothin' but a good thing
Life ain't nothin' but a good thing
Life ain't nothin' but a good thing
Life ain't nothin' but a good thing

Make Room For Love

 

Move over clouds, let the sun shine through
I can't handle this gray that has lately come my way, oh no
The way you are, easy come easy go
You want the best of both worlds, and I'm caught up in the middle with you

 

Love, love, love. Oh love / Love, love, love. Oh love
Make room for love / Room love,
Make room for love / Room love, 

 

Half a love won't do for me
I'd rather you abandoned me
Cos you and me Can't truly be
Set me free or say this love will be
Exclusively for you and me

 

Goodbye my dream, what more can I do
Won't be treated this way It's a cruel game to play,
We've come so far, yes it hurts to let go
Can't have the best of both worlds, You've got to choose whose heart you're taking with you

 

When your eyes are closed and you take a chance you never know what'cha gonna get
A handful of diamonds or a handful of worthless stones
If you really want to know what true love's all about
Then open your eyes and let me show you the way
Let me show you the way

 

What'cha thinkin'?
When you're playin'
When you play the games you do
Are you truly
Believin'
That I could play this game with you

 

Half a love won't do for me
I'd rather you abandoned me

 

Writer: J-P. Maunick / M. Cooper

 

 

 

Tell Me What To Do

 

Truth is I really really really want you
I've never met anyone like you, not before
Truth is I really really want to hold you
I never want to be without you in my life

 

The very thought of you and me being here alone
Keeps me breathin'
I can't believe that this is my reality
Am I dreamin'

 

Tell me what to do, tell me what to do
To keep this love together
Through the rain and stormy weather
Tell me what to do

 

I never came here to tell you how I feel
Saw you fallin'
I only came to listen and to help you heal
Love came callin'
