about

North East South West is the third album from the 7 album epic "World In a Suitcase".
Imagine a stiff drink music elixir with the ingredients of Stevie Wonder & Prince. Then you add Sting & Queen on top of it all.
It's a refreshing mix of Soul & Rock Opera.
ENJOY!!!

Track Name: Apple Falls Off The Tree
--LYRICS--

Verse 1:
The apple falls off the tree.
Then I saw it hit a leaf.
It rolled on into a stream.
And floated out to the sea.

Pre #1:
See how different we are.
Can’t you see, see how different we are.
You know I love you, but we are not the same.
The only thing that keeps me from killin’ you
Is your last name.

Verse 2:
The apple falls off the tree.
A child picks it up to eat.
And leaves it lyin’ in the street.
The rains wash it out to sea.

Pre #2:
See how different we've grown.
Can’t you see, see how different we've grown.
You know I love you, but we are not the same.
The only thing that keeps me from killin’ you
Is your last name.

Verse 3:
The apple falls off the tree.
It never stays where it should be.
Cause one day it’s gotta break free. (Free)
And start its own family

Pre #3:
Leave our differences out.
Can we leave, leave our differences out.
You know I love you, cause I guess we are the same,
But the only thing that keeps me from killin’ you,
(The only thing that keeps me)
Oh the only thing that keeps me from killin’ you,
Is your Last name.

You drive me crazy sometimes….but you know I love ya.
Track Name: You And Your Queen
--LYRICS--

Verse 1:
You and your Queen, you just wait for all your wrongs to come out right. Outright.
You and your Queen, you just hide behind your castles and your knights. All night.
There’s no fight. No life.

Verse 2:
You and your Queen, you just sit around and watch the paintings dry. How dry.
Well you and your Queen, you just send your people out like pawns to die.
And they die. But so why?

Pre:
You don't take us serious, You don't take us serious,
You don't take us serious, no more.
You don't take us serious, You don't take us serious,
You don't take us serious, anymore.

Chorus:
You were the King.
You had everything.
But you lost your mind when she became your dream.
You and your queen.

Verse 3:
You and your Queen, you don't battle back you just accept defeat. You’re beat.
You and your Queen, you’re just suckin' face and messin' up the sheets. All week.
You just sleep.

--Pre--
--Chorus--

Verse 4:
You and your Queen plan to wait at home until the war is through.
And it’s all through. (Believe it or not)
You and your Queen think you'll always be on top but it's not true.
No it’s not true. You'll loose.

--Pre--

--Chorus--

Verse 1:
Wake up, I see a little ray of shining light.

I just might need your help. Cause there's so much we can do.

Chorus:
North East South West. Which way should I go today?
North East South West. Which way? I pray.

Verse 2:
Wake up, I see so many dreams what should I choose.
Wake up, I've everything to gain, nothing to loose.
(What could I loose)

Pre #2
I'll take another road. I'll love somebody new.
We'll let our minds explode, then try and see it through.

Chorus:
North East South West. Which way should I go today?
North East South West. Which way? I pray.

--Interlude--

Chorus:
North East South West. Which way should I go today?

Which way? I pray.
Track Name: Leslie
--LYRICS--

Verse 1:
I woke up to my alarm this morning.
Wondering if what I had seen was true.
Well, I had dreamed forever I'd been mourning.
Mourning at the thought that I'd lost you.

Pre #1:
See, I could talk for days and days,
But you should see my eyes,
Cause I despise the man I was just yesterday .
Cause now I've changed yeah you should know.

Chorus:
My angel Leslie you're so fine.
Por favor please help I've lost my mind.
My angel Leslie you're so fine.
I don't want to lose you, I've been blind.

Verse 2:
Take away my name all my possessions.
Extinguish every fire of my success.
The past is gone please be my one obsession.
Leslie please arrest me I'll confess.

Pre #2:
I've turned my back on you
so many times it's deja vu and I,
just running from the truth my lie
won't make it anymore you have to know.

--Chorus--

Verse 3:
Tell me where I've been what solar system.
Cause I woke up today and now I'm here.
Now I know without you, I'll be imprisoned.
What I failed to see is now so clear.

Pre #1:
I could talk for days and days,
But you should see my eyes,
Cause I despise the man I was just yesterday
Cause now I've changed yeah you should know.
--Double Chorus--

I could stay out here forever.
Just as long as I'm with you.
Just as long as I'm with you.

Verse 2:
Faster and Faster, Faster and Faster, There's no way we'll ever loose.
Faster and Faster, Faster and Faster, There's no choice we cannot choose.

--Chorus--

Bridge: (Featuring Nayanna Holly)
Please don't leave me here alone.
Don't leave me here alone.
Don't leave me here alone.
I know I won't survive. (I won't Survive) Without you I can't survive.

Tomorrow's the last day that I'll be around.
So I'm leaving home, I'm leaving home without you.

Don't know where I'm going, I'm bound to get lost.
The train is not slowing, they're raising the cost so.

Bridge:
Everybody's got somebody here with them tonight.
Everybody has their life, but me it just ain't right.

You know how I love you, no that cannot change.
But you know as I do that I cannot stay so
I'm leaving home, I'm leaving home without you.

Everybody's got somebody here with them tonight.
Everybody has their life, but me it just ain't right.

But I'm leaving home, I'm leaving home…(repeat)

--LYRICS--

“3 Second went by”

Verse 1:
Brother how have you been?
See I been waiting on the phone to ring all day. All day.

Brother it was a scare.
It was a nightmare in the shape of a cliche.
I need to know. Are you OK?

Pre:
Someone sent a message yesterday.
Said that in your sleep you'd passed away.
There are so many things I wanted to say.
Like I love You.

Chorus:
Three seconds went by. Three seconds of time.
My brother was gone, but now brother's alive.

Verse 2:
Brother you're up and down
You’re side to side, you're open wide you're underground.
Underground

Brother I got the news
I couldn't breath I couldn't move or make a sound.
Could this be true?
I'm turned around.

--Pre--

--Guitar Solo--

Oh amaretto, say where did you go?
The bottle was full, the last time that I checked.

My heart took my mind, just packed up and left.

Your mother still prays for you,
That's why, that's why you've done so well.
Oooo, Oooo.
Your mother still prays for you,
That's why, that's why you've done so well.
Oooo, Oooo.

Oh amaretto, where did you go?
You had it all, but you just let it fall behind

Verse 1:
I live in this little world of mine
Careless, clueless, I'm in my prime
I've got everything I'll ever need.
There's nobody I would rather be.

Chorus:
In my next life I'll try to be president.
In my next life I'll try to get ahead of it.
In my next life I'll try to be relevant.
In my next life I'm gonna be president......and take over the world.

I don't want your money or your fame.
I don't think I'll ever catch my train.
I've got all I need, I've got love.
I don't think I'll ever give it up,

--Chorus 1--

Bridge:
I have tried to wear a suit and tie.

I can't be somebody I'm not.
Cause this life might be all I've got.

Chorus 3:
In my next life I'll try to be president.
In my next life I'll try to get ahead of it.
In my next life I'll see what they wanna see.
In my next life Oh I'll be who they say to be, in my next life.

Outro:
In my next life (Take over the world)
Nobody's gonna tell me what to do with this life....
