Track Name: The Life
INTRO
The life that I'm living
Is the life that I'm loving
And I wouldn't trade it for nothing...(2x)

VERSE 1
Wake up early in the morning
Beautiful mountains
And the Pacific Ocean...(it's Calling)
Sun is rising
Morning Red
A specific Emotion...(I'm Feeling)
New day
Same Smile
Everyday that I'm living...(is a blessing)
I think I'll stay for awhile
Cause everyday that I'm given...(is a blessing)

CHORUS
I know this is THE LIFE, I want to live, Day into night
I know this is THE LIFE, I want to live, Live it up right

VERSE 2
I look up at the stars at night and I can't wait for tomorrow..
So take a good look at your life and let go of your sorrows
'Cause everyday that we're stressing
Is a day that we're wasting
Got to get into something...(something)
Can't let nothing
Hold you down
Got to keep on moving...(and loving)

CHORUS
I know this is THE LIFE, I want to live, Day into night
I know this is THE LIFE, I want to live, Live it up right
Track Name: Sugar Mama
I see you scoping the scene over there
You don't wanna look
You can't help but stare so girl...(don't put up a fight)

I'm gonna walk over, "Baby what's your name?"
"Pleased to meet you, I'm Antoine Allain and I..." (I'm gonna take you home tonight)

You know I'm digging your style
And your sexxy little smile
Love the way you get down
(Let me see you move)

The way you swing your hips
And lick your lips
Now I wanna see you strip
(Hey Sugar Mama)

I know you're not easy, but its not a race
Cause I want a challenge and I love the chase, Cause I... (I'm good at what I do)

Your body-language is telling me yes, So by the end of tonight I'll get you out of that dress and girl... (Im gonna give it good to you)

Move your body to the left, now back to the right...I wanna be your man tonight... (Love the way you move)

I don't just want to dance, I really want a chance...To make you feel right...(Hey, Sugar Mama)

Welcome to my pad, make yourself at home...I'll light some candles while you turn off your phone, and I...(I'm gonna turn you on)

Come over here, sit next to me...It's about that time that you get to see what I...(Can do all night long)

We're fooling around, my tongue in your mouth...I'm gonna take it down south...(The things I'm gonna do)

Just a little forplay, then I'll do it my way...And I'll make you say (girls voice: Oh, sugar daddy)
Track Name: Dear Santa Barbara
Born on the ocean
Raised on the beach
My daddy raised me right cause my mom was out of reach
But that's all good 'cause I really moved on
I'm sitting here today while I'm singing this song
I told my daddy
This place was wrong
Come on now poppa lets move-on out a long
We came here to the California sun
And now thats the place where I know that I belong

(Ohhh) It wasn't always that easy
(Ohhh) I found a way to keep breathing
(Ohhh) Everyones got their problems
(But I) Tried my hardest to solve them

Now I'm here, feeling good I love the atmosphere
Now more clouds, now that the skies are clear
Writing a letter to Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara

One-way tickets for me and my dad
Going to Cali and we ain't coming back
I remember the first night
When we slept in the car
New people, new language, but home wasn't far
I adapted quickly, found love and friends
From a scared little boy, to a brave young man
I know what its like, to be in pain
So I promised myself it wouldn't happen again

(Ohhh) Everything that you gave me
(Ohhh) All the ways that you saved me
(Ohhh) We needed something brand new
(So I...) Take this moment to thank you

Now I'm here, feeling good I love the atmosphere
No more clouds, now that the skies are clear
Writing a letter to Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara

I just want to thank you
You know what its like to give someone everything they have ever wanted?
A home, love, friends?
Not only for me, but for my father
It means a lot to me, I owe you the world
I don't think you really do understand
What you have done for me, how great it is
I'm happy
Sincerely yours,
Antoine Allain
Track Name: Peace of Mind
VERSE 1
I'm going straight, I crossed the line...
Moving fast, but I'm losing time...
I try so hard just to find...
(A little Peace of Mind)
Everytime I close my eyes, I take a breath and realize...
From the lows up to the highs...
(I need my Peace of Mind)

CHORUS
(Whoa yeah) Thats the way I live my day...
Wether the skies are blue or grey, I let my thoughts just fade away
(Whoa I) Love the way I live my life...
I will always try and strive, for Peace of Mind

Verse2
I know that I, must stay alive...
All through the day, into the night...
I try so hard just to find...
(A little Peace of Mind)
I've been so low, and flown so high...
I've hit the ground, but touched the sky...
And now I know the reason why...
(I need my Peace of Mind)
And when I see the light I know...
That my soul will always grow...
Into the depths and with the flow...
(I will never be alone)
I was blind, but now I see...
That Peace of Mind is all I need..
All my thoughts and my beliefs, will set me free...
Will set me free...

CHORUS
(Whoa yeah) Thats the way I live my day...
Wether the skies are blue or grey, I let my thoughts just fade away
(Whoa I) Love the way I live my life...
I will always try and strive, for Peace of Mind
Track Name: Tell Me Why
Tell me why, Why your gone away...
I'm just a child, Left with no words to say...
Tell me why, Why you left me alone...
I'm still right here, But it doesn't feel like home

Everytime I hear your name, I smile...
Everytime I hear your voice, I smile...
Everytime I dream of you, I smile...
But every time I remember, I cry

Tell me why, Why your gone away...
I'm just a child, Left with no words to say...
Tell me why, Why you left me alone...
I'm still right here, But it doesn't feel like home
Track Name: Hey Lady
Verse1
Hey Lady, We meet again...
The First time was just a little short..
So lady, I've gotta say...
You left me wanting for some more
So tell me, Is tonight...
The night that your giving me a chance...
'Cause lady, its not right...
To walk away from a simple dance

Chorus
(Come back to me) One more time...
(Come back to me) And just be mine...
(Come back to me) I'll make you smile
Come back to me and stay awhile...

And I could be your man (2x)

Verse2
Hey Lady, I'm surprised...
I never thought I'd hear from you again...
'Cause baby, You caught my eye...
But I wasn't sure if I did the same
So lady, here we are...
You and I, with nobody else...
Your beauty shines like a star...
On a night that I'd never forget

Chorus
(Come back to me) One more time...
(Come back to me) And just be mine...
(Come back to me) I'll make you smile
Come back to me and stay awhile...

And I could be your man (2x)
Track Name: A Fall
VERSE1
They Say if you love somebody, then you must let them go..
But ever since you've been gone, I can't walk out the door
Every breath, every footstep, Every word that I speak...
Is pointless baby, 'cause your not here with me

CHORUS
And I just want to let you know...
That without you, baby, I am nothing at all
And I just want to let you know...
That without you, baby, my life is just A FALL

VERSE2
This song might sound like I'm asking for you back...
And thats exactly what it is, I'm not gonna lie
So stop playing games, cause I'm going crazy...
Everything turns black, when your not here with me

CHORUS
And I just want to let you know...
That without you, baby, I am nothing at all
And I just want to let you know...
That without you, baby, my life is just A FALL
Track Name: Move
CHORUS
Move, Baby, Move...I'm getting in a groove...
I'm doing big things that your man can't do...
I say Move, Baby, Move now...Move, Baby, move now

Move, Baby, Move...I'm feeling you right...
Baby, you shining like candlelight
I say Move, Baby, Move now...Move, Baby, move now

VERSE1
Hey, you just made my day...
It takes tonight to take it all away...
Maybe you could ease my mind...
Because your so fine, I don't even know what to say

Damn, Here I go again...
Chasing after things that will never end...
Baby, your my perfect type...
So lets get it right, you could be my late night friend

CHORUS
Move, Baby, Move...I'm getting in a groove...
I'm doing big things that your man can't do...
I say Move, Baby, Move now...Move, Baby, move now

VERSE2
Wow, All these midnight moves...
Got me feeling like I've got something to prove...
But baby, I just don't care...
Tension in the air building right between me and you...
Now can't you hear the song...
Baby, don't be shy, just groove along
Move, baby, move now...
Move Baby Move Now
Track Name: Games You Play
CHORUS
Just Give me a reason, Why you play this way, yeah...
Your making a decision, To play the games you play

VERSE1
Standing on solid ground...
Nothing could hold us down...
We couldn't keep apart...
Girl You had my heart

I guess I was a fool...
Falling in love with you...
Cause now it seems things changed...
When you started playing games

CHORUS
Just Give me a reason, Why you play this way, yeah...
Your making a decision, To play the games you play

VERSE2
You wore a good disguise...
Telling me all these lies...
But now I know the truth...
And all the things you do

I had it all so wrong...
And now my trust is gone...
So you can move along...
Just move along, JUST MOVE ALONG

CHORUS
Just Give me a reason, Why you play this way, yeah...
Your making a decision, To play the games you play
Track Name: I Forgive You
I had a dream one night, That you were here with me...
I woke up that morning, With a smile from ear to ear
It felt so damn real, You were tucking me in...
Telling me the same old story, That I'm used to listening

And I forgive you, Ma...
You're the reason I'm here...
I forgive you, Ma, For all the tears...

I know you are up there, Looking down from your star...
Am I making you proud, Do you think that I'll go far...
Now will you please just reach me, Tell me that you can fly..
Would you please come down and teach me, 'Cause I would like to give it a try

And I forgive you, Ma, Your the reason I'm here
Ya, I forgive you, Ma, For all the tears
I forgive you ma, Your the reason I'm here
And I forgive you ma, For all the tears...
For all the tears...I forgive you ma
