Lyrics

I THINK ITS LOVE

By Glenn Chaka Stevenson

I've got a good friend that I don’t share,
The Sweetest lover yea she’s so sincere,
She comforts me with consummate ease,
She melts inside me and tries to please me,

And when I’m with her I’m tattered and torn,
She never hears me when I say no more.
She locks the door, turns down the lights,
And overwhelms me without a fight.
She knows she’s all I need,
Sweet temptation always leads to greed

I think its love
I’m not as strong as I used to be,

I think its love
Temptation always gets the better of me,
Now here I am at the end of the road.
Bitter tears and emotions gone cold,

She knows she’s all I need,
Sweet temptation always leads to greed
Its not looking good, my visions impaired.
Heartfelt deception or so I’ve heard
Old fashioned cynics like to put me down,
They don’t understand I’m only fooling around.
She knows she’s all I need,
Sweet temptation always leads to greed
I think its love
Shooby Doobee,

Ba da da da da,

Sha na na na na,

Ohh la la la

CLOUD DANCING

By Glenn Chaka Stevenson

I dreamed I was dancing on the clouds in your eyes,
Your tears they kept the beat and around us the Angels sighed,
I woke up all alone,  I could still see your face,
And  the love we used to share was just like April rain.

The wanting and the loving they linger on,
Here comes the morning and then your gone,

Then I'm Cloud Dancing once again,
Cloud Dancing at the rainbows end,
Cloud Dancing want to hold you so tight,
Cloud Dancing on my own, through the night.

The stars on your face lead me to the place I long to be,
Your silver lining shines so bright when you dance with me,

The wanting and the loving they linger on,
Here comes the morning and then your gone,

Then I'm Cloud Dancing once again,
Cloud Dancing at the rainbows end,
Cloud Dancing want to hold you so tight,
Cloud Dancing on my own, through the night.

WAITING FOR MARY

By Glenn Chaka Stevenson

Sometimes I feel I cant go on,
It drains the life blood out of me,
But I'm gonna find what I'm looking for,
Even if it takes an eternity,

I guess that I should know by now,
This boy gets fooled to easily,
I've played the jester once again,
But your not to blame, Its not love in vain.

Mary Mary extraordinary, glowing like a schoolgirl smile,
I reminisce about your gentle kiss,
It makes my whole life seem worthwhile,
Your interventions are divine,
You make everyone feel 12 miles high and thats why,
I'm waiting for Mary, I'm waiting for Mary.

I'm standing in the pouring rain,
Waiting for sweet Mary once again,
She'll ride the rainbow to my promises,
So I dont care how long it takes.

Your love it bleeds into my life,
Your fragrance haunts this empty room,
I'll always play the waiting game,
But your not to blame, its not love in vain.

Mary Mary extraordinary, (Repeat Chorus)

Where are you now sweet angel?
Can I fly up in your dreams?
Can I hang on to your halo?
Or must you be a refugee like me oh?
I'm waiting for Mary

DO YOU RECALL

By Glenn Chaka Stevenson

Hey Boy we dont want to hear that crap,
You better watch your back,
No you, you cant ignore me now.
Do you recall when Johny and Tommy stood so tall,
The Olympic dream, black fists were flying high,
Through the hisses and cheers,
Still standing proud after all these years,
Standing in alliance, standing in defiance.

CHORUS

Hey Boy we dont want to hear that crap,
You better watch your back,
And you cant pretend I dont exist,
Cause I'm in your face cant you see these fists,
No you, you cant ignore me now,
Cause this is my crowd,
No you, you cant ignore me now.

Do you recall, Martin Luther the struggle the fight the fall,
All the way to Memphis, Dream on, Dream on,
Not afraid to die, you get no rest from a hungry oppressed,
And when you cut us down, we learn to live on stoney ground.

CHORUS

LEAD BREAK

Do you recall Muhammed Ali didnt go to war,
No V.C. ever called me a nigger,
I know how to fight but that ain't right.
But I'm so pretty I'm so pretty,
Dancing under Golden Lights,
Dancing in alliance, Dancing in defiance

CHORUS
My father was a different man when he came back from Vietnam
And your sons and lovers will be different men when they come
back from Iraq, Iran Afghanistan.

No you, you cant ignore me now,

Cause this is my crowd,
No you, you can't ignore me now.

SUNDAY GIRL

By Glenn Chaka Stevenson

I was just a Saturday Boy building my life on hopes and dreams,
She was a Sunday Girl who knew how to smile at life it seems.
She never let me make her Team, folks said she was out of my league,
I thought she was heaven sent, I didn’t know what unrequited meant,
Oh My My My, Oh Why Why Why,

One day I think I’ll write a book and tell the world about how you took.
I might win the Booker Prize when I talk about all our secret lives.
I’m kept informed by mutual friends, so it feels like your always there,
I was just a Saturday Boy who loved a Sunday Girl that didn’t care.

And Oh you have to laugh, every time I rang she was in the bath.
And Oh when we met at eight I was always early and she was late.
And Oh sweet dreams for my Sunday Girl, and Oh sweet dreams for my Sunday Girl,

I was just a Saturday Boy building my life on hopes and dreams,
She was a Sunday Girl who knew how to take my love it seems.
She never let me make her Team, folks said she was out of my league,
I thought she was heaven sent, I didn’t know what unrequited meant,

And Oh you have to laugh, every time I rang she was in the bath.
And Oh when we met at eight I was always early and she was late.
And Oh sweet dreams for my Sunday Girl, and Oh sweet dreams for my Sunday Girl,

SECRETS

By Glenn Chaka Stevenson

There used to be a garden here, By the old bombsite up on the hill,
We used to play in the burnt out cars,12 years after the last Great War.
We used to run by the railway lines,Down by the closed factory signs,
Playing hide and seek with the gypsy kids, Behind the fields where you used to live.

CHORUS

I remember your hair brush against my face,
Down by the old school gates,
We were tasting love for the very first time,
No ulterior motives no reason to lie,
Unconditional love till the end of all time.

And I doubt we'll ever meet again, But my love is with you my first real friend,
And within this soul sweet memories, Of a perfect world you gave to me.

And all the places that we were meeting,
And all the secrets that we were keeping
We were tasting love for the very first time,
No ulterior motives no reason to lie,
Unconditional love till the end of all time.

VERSE 1 AGAIN

And all the places that we were meeting,
And all the secrets that we were keeping
We made love sometimes just for fun,
You can only do that when your young,
Thats kiss and no tell and love on the run.
