Lyrics

Life is the opposite of non-existence And the universe is everything that there is The planet earth is spinning in a circle around the sun As the molecules and cells and atoms dance It could be random chance Perhaps a grander scheme Some say it’s just a dream and everything’s not what it seems Time is a frustrating space to be caught in But we ride it out ‘cause we don’t have a choice And it seems to take forever Even at the speed of light As our chemical reactions, in the bight, Are sparking in the dark And lighting up my brain As though a bio-plasmic hologram is all I am And you can believe anything you conceive of And then pretend it’s true until the day that you die But the truth is still reality and reality is real Still it doesn’t change the way it makes you feel And that’s the mystery, at least it is to me ‘cause there’s a history of reasons how we got this way but who am I to say, ‘cause I don’t really know but evidently love is what is making the whole thing go

Lyrics

Do you suppose that it’s naïve? To actually believe In true love? Or is it only in the movies or something on TV, Or is it something that could really be? I’d love to fall in love Feel like I’m high above The sunshine. But when I stop and think about it, What I think I really need Is for some one to fall in love with me. Do you suppose it could be true? Do you suppose it could be you? “Cause if somebody’d take the chance I’d even learn to dance The merengue. And I’d try with all my heart And I trust that she could see The shining sould inside of me. Do you suppose if it was you That you could love me too Forever? Or is it something just for now Till something better comes along And you’ll leave me singing sad, sad songs? Do you suppose it could be true? Do you suppose it could be you?

Lyrics

In space a spiral cloud of gas and dust, Collapses on itself and becomes us. It didn't have to go to all that fuss, 'Cause it was all there is and all there was. The photons from the early Autumn sky, colliding with the neurons of my eyes, Transform into the silver tears I cry, For a moment I think I almost felt alive. The electric charge of ions in the wind, Dancing on the atoms of my skin, My embouchure contorts into a grin, For a moment I think I felt alive again. Sunrise as another day begins, Just an illusion from the way the planet spins. Where we're going is always where we've been, That's probably why I felt alive again.

Words & Music: Cain Spanish lyric: Juan Manuel Morones

Story

This is one of my personal favorites. I wrote the music and English lyric and Juan Morones wrote a beautiful Spanish lyric. I mixed rythmic genres for a relaxed beat; bossa nova and bolero-together it becomes "bossalero."

Lyrics

Woman of my heart. Woman of my dreams. The sparkle and the spirit in her eyes. Just make me want to not die. She's the wave in my ocean she's my summer sun, Now I'm taken to the notion she'd the only and the one. Woman I adore, Woman of my soul. Woman of my heart I love you, and it's as simple as this, I want to be your man. Reina de mi amor, Duena del candor, Que provoca con su cuerpo la pasion, y motiva todo mi ilusion. Es preciosa entre las bellas, es mi cielo azul, es de mi noches las estrellas de mi manana el sol La mujer que adoro, Mi querer, mi tesoro. Yo tengo que cantar que te amo. Pero dime que tu, Tu me amas tambien.

Lyrics

I love your smile and your soft caress. I love your style and the way you dress. I guess I even love the way you make my life a mess. And like a child I'm so impressed, I'm totally with you obsessed. I love your eyes. I adore your face, And your lovely little lies, and your sweet embrace, I love it when you know just when and why to let me have my space. I love your thighs. I love your waist. I even love the way you taste. I love the passion of your kisses When your hair falls in between our lips. I love your fingernails and breath upon my chest. I love your very depths. When evening falls I love the way we make Love shadows on the wall. I love it all. I love your lips and your silk soft hands, and your slender hips and the way you stand. And if I start to lose my grip you always take my hand. I love the way you understand, The little boy inside the man.
