and the waves they wash over me

and the waves they wash over me

Jeremy Loops
Jeremy Hewitt, (born 4 March 1984), known by his stage name Jeremy Loops, is a South African singer and songwriter.

The sun keeps calling
And I’ve been chasing early
So give me the coffee in the morning
A kiss when she leaves me
To get my day started
So I breathe in life
And get to another rhythm and I’m in the flow
Sitting in the backline, waiting for the perfect one

And the waves came, washed over me

Maybe I’ve been stallin’
Baby I just won’t curve it
Just to keep it in your pocket
Kisses when she needs me
Loving and a locket

I want to be water
Skipping rocks in my soul again
Pebbles on Long Beach, slowly turning into sand

And the waves came, washed over me

And the waves they, wash over me
As the riptide pulls me out into the deep
It surrounds me, holds me, follows when I breath
But the air is clear and I am here

And the waves came, washed over me

[Jain Vevo]

Hey! Lil Mama, why don’t you come around?

You’re feeling lost, you’re feeling alone, you’re feeling away far from your home

Hey! Lil Mama, why don’t you come around?

You’re feeling lost, you’re feeling alone, you’re feeling away far from your home

See what the world is giving, it’s more than everything you need

Some don’t know what true love is, look around you and you will see hey

Mothers are loving, sisters are sharing, you should forget all the things you’ve taught me

You got your soul, you got your brain, see what you can do with your hands

Ooh, now you feel it

Time to feel good, about you, to take a good break

And ooh, now you feel it

Peace inside, your mind, got to leave

Hey! Lil Mama, why don’t you come around?

You’re feeling lost, you’re feeling alone, you’re feeling away far from your home

Hey! Lil Mama, why don’t you come around?

You’re feeling lost, you’re feeling alone, you’re feeling away far from your home

When the sun is going down and there’s silence in your head

Don’t you worry, don’t you run, there’s a place to lay your head

Don’t you know how to stand up and make this world your own

If you feel like giving up, I make you feel at home

Ooh, now you feel it

Time to feel good, about you, to take a good break

And, oooh, now you feel it

Peace inside, your mind, got to leave

Hey! Lil Mama, why don’t you come around?

You’re feeling lost, you’re feeling alone, you’re feeling away far from your home

Hey! Lil Mama, why don’t you come around?

You’re feeling lost, you’re feeling alone, you’re feeling away far from your home

Perfect Symphony (Feat. Andrea Bocelli)

I found a love for me
Oh darling, just dive right in and follow my lead
Well, I found a girl, beautiful and sweet
Oh, I never knew you were the someone waiting for me
‘Cause we were just kids when we fell in love
Not knowing what it was
I will not give you up this time
But darling, just kiss me slow, your heart is all I own
And in your eyes, you’re holding mine

Baby, I’m dancing in the dark with you between my arms
Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song
When you said you looked a mess, I whispered underneath my breath
But you heard it, darling, you look perfect tonight

Take yours and I’ll take mine
On the right hand side
And I’ll rest and you’ll find that you take rest in wine
So take these words and make them right
So one day you and I will write our names in the sky
We’ll confide

And I’ll find mine on the right of Your side
And I’ll find mine on the right of Your side
If I throw away my fear and pride to set things right
Then I’ll find mine on the right of Your side

Brothers and sisters
Fill these cups with life
Please forgive them
‘cos they know not their lies
So take these words and make them right
So one day you and I will write our names in the sky
We’ll confide

And I’ll find mine on the right of Your side
And I’ll find mine on the right of Your side
If I throw away my fear and pride to set things right
Then I’ll find mine on the right of Your side

And I’ll find mine on the right of Your side
And I’ll find mine on the right of Your side
If I throw away my fear and pride to set things right
Then I’ll find mine on the right of Your side

I lift my hair on top of my head
All I want is to surrender
So I can finally rest
I trust my faith
I don’t have anything else
All I want is to surrender
So I can finally rest
