INTRODUCTION: If you can live you can die There ain’t no time to wonder why Life is short, the life we’re thrown You have a choice to live or die CHORUS: Time marches on Nothing stays the same There’s always change VERSE: The trance sees ideas That pass through our ears The older we grow The more knowledge we know Time marches forth Waiting for no one In a world filled with strife Blossoming in new life Evolution brings change And change seems so strange When you had it the same for so long But when change comes along Still sing the same old song Just go with the flow It’s the only way to grow (REPEAT CHORUS) (REPEAT VERSE) (REPEAT CHORUS)

VERSE 1: As much as I try I cannot, won’t please everyone I’m on this earth to get it done But can’t forget to have some fun I come from another time space is rare I pull my energy from the air Pray for the wow factor to spare Take on that American Idol flare See I can see my future now Brighter than the gleam from the bling you bow Take my cues from up the brow Use what I got manifest the Tao Can’t believe you hear me now More than what I push, allow Love for the life will never end 11:11 repeat again CHORUS: 11:11, repeat the time, 11:11 make a wish VERSE 2: As much as I try I cannot, won’t please everyone I’m on this earth to get it done But can’t forget to have some fun I come from another time space is rare I pull my energy from the air Pray for the wow factor to spare Take on that American Idol flare See I can see my future now Brighter than the gleam from the bling you bow Take my cues from up the brow Use what I got manifest the Tao Can’t believe you hear me now More than what I push, allow Love for the life will never end 11:11 repeat again (REPEAT CHORUS) (REPEAT VERSE) (REPEAT CHORUS)

VERSE 1: Ever wonder if the girl in front of you Has it worse than you And if she didn’t would you feel (It’d be better to be living proof) That problems never disappear (But it’s all in how you work it through) Survival is the key to freedom (But it depends on how you do) CHORUS: It’s the life and times (Times that we live in) Leave your stress behind (Can’t go back to the beginning) The life and times (Time we’ve been given) So Live it So Live it So Live It (REPEAT CHORUS) VERSE 2: Ever wonder if the guy in front of you Is living more than you And if he was then would you be (You’d be living in the moment more) Realize you’ve got a life to live (Cause tomorrow’s never promised, no) Survival is the key to freedom (You must be willing to grow) (REPEAT CHORUS) (REPEAT CHORUS WITH ADLIBS)

VERSE 1: 300 million in the world today Strugglin' hard without a place to stay Thousands of us will medicate the pain Living it numb won't stop from going insane See there's someone who'll say you mean the world to me But you'd rather believe that you will never by free Can’t look deep within to see the beauty in you But I'm here to tell you what you're saying ain't true CHORUS: Problems come and go Learn to overcome Got to let it flow (Got to let it flow) Problems come and go Learn to overcome Pray for guidance live the best that life can give (You'll see that) Problems come and go Learn to overcome Push yourself to grow (Push yourself to grow) Problems come and go Learn to overcome Pray for guidance live the best that life can give (You'll see that) VERSE 2: 600 billion spent to fight this war 4,000 soldiers died but we ignore We're no better off than the year before Not even sure what we're responsible for But there's someone today who's living in the dark Thinking that life's path is too much to embark I'm praying that you will change your point of view Cause I'm here to tell you what you're saying ain't true (REPEAT CHORUS) Someone will say the world is yours to lead But you’d rather believe that you will never be free (ADLIBS)

VERSE 1: L.O.V.E. is all I can see Keeps taking over no democracy No space to think in her reality Just feel the way to where we’re meant to be I fell for you and lost my mind Let all my feelings show Gave you my heart and now I’ve gone blind so lead The way cause now I know CHORUS: It all comes down to love (comes down to love) It all comes down to love (comes down to love) Love, Love, Love (hey hey hey!) It all comes down to love (REPEAT CHORUS) VERSE 2: L.O.V.E. came and changed my soul Took full control made her my only goal Look in her eyes and see the growth beneath As much as I try I can hardly breathe She’s in my mind with everything I do She makes me wanna fly Gave her my heart and now I give all of my L.O.V.E. to you (REPEAT CHORUS) BRIDGE: Every little piece of your heart (comes down to love) Every little piece of your soul (comes down to love) Every little piece of your shine (comes down to love) Every little piece of your time (comes down to love) Every little piece of your heart (comes down to love) Every little piece of your soul (comes down to love) Love, Love, Love, Love (hey hey hey!) It all comes down to………you

about

MSM1018

Recorded over the span of three years, Adam’s debut album is an eclectic mix of jazz, dance and world music. Full of positivity and diversity, this LP feels like a breath of fresh air. “Peace of Mind” and “Humble Beginnings” set the tone for the album’s creative spirit while vocalist queen AaMinah combines her melodic vocals with Adam’s sultry style to bring you the beautiful “Really Love You”. Eddie Nicholas steps in with his powerhouse vocals during “Time Marches On”, a cover of the Jungle Wonz classic, and “Ghumbah”, a latin tune about dancing to your own groove - your own ‘Ghumbah’. Adam lends his vocals during “11:11”, a clever track about time repeating itself while his sister, singer Flora Cruz, sings her heart out on the album’s title track, “Life and Times,” a beautiful song about living the best that life has to offer. Legendary vocalist, Gerideau, brings pure magic with the politically charged anthem, “Letitflow” and the album’s epilogue, “L.O.V.E.” In all, the “Life and Times” LP is a timeless piece of music! This Deluxe Edition includes 7 new songs including the brand new smash hits “Dancer In The Dark,” “Nothing But Me” and so much more!
