People go without wait for my honey
Waiting here for you
Others choose to stay in the tiny cage
Not my people, not you
So won’t you stay, we can figure it out
Find our hope, maybe lose our doubt
You should know whatever I do, when distance calls
I’ll be sending for you
Singing
My people, oh my people
Nothing compares to the soul of my people
My people, oh my people
Nothing compares to you. ooh
‘Cause people like you
‘Cause people like
‘Cause people like you
Oh my people
‘Cause people like you
‘Cause people like
‘Cause people like you
My people, Oh my people
I tried to find my place out there
To start with something new
To try to find my way out there
To escape from all that I knew
I had to find a way to make peace out there
To try to grow up alone to
Find a way to make peace out there but
It never felt like home
Without
My people, oh my people
Nothing compares to the soul of my people
My people, oh my people
Nothing compares to you. ooh
‘Cause people like you
‘Cause people like
‘Cause people like you
Oh my people
‘Cause people like you
‘Cause people like
‘Cause people like you
My people, Oh my people
Say I
I found a place I love
I found a place I love
And there’s something about it
It is keeping me honest
Been living with a cold heart
Now I’m moving to the darkness now
I’m just getting started
Yeah I’m just getting started
I found a place I love
I found a place I love
Where
My people, oh my people
Nothing compares to the soul of my people
My people, oh my people
Nothing compares to you. ooh
‘Cause people like you
‘Cause people like
‘Cause people like you
Oh my people
‘Cause people like you
‘Cause people like
‘Cause people like you hmm and me
My people, oh my people

[JAINVEVO]

Jeanne Galice, known professionally as Jain, is a French singer-songwriter. Her debut album, Zanaka, was released in November 2015.

Black burn. I feel so alone without you boy
now I ‘m here
hanging out in the street
thinking about reactions over actions
walking on the sky of my dreams

Come, come, my baby come
I will show you the world
Come ,come, my baby come
I will cover your nightmares
Come, come, my baby come
I will love you forever
Come, come, my baby come
I will not let you go

My love, I just feel so lost
without you boy
I am yours even if time has passed
Take me away
from this impetuous world
leaving this jail of my mind

My soul, my soul is in Africa, with you boy

My soul, is in Africa with you boy
Looking at the stars
on this diamond sky
giving you my heart
so you can keep it on your mind
floating on your blazing eyes

Bibia Be Ye Ye

I lost my shoes last night, I don’t know where I put my keys
I was tired and fell asleep beneath an oak tree
I bet my mother’s proud of me from each scar
Upon my knuckle and each graze upon my knee, and all I know
Is I got a cab and then threw up on his car seat
He kicked me out and then I walked in the rain
I tell myself in every way, “I won’t be doing this again”
And tomorrow’s a brand new day
Someone told me, “always say what’s on your mind”
And I am only being honest with you, I
I get lonely and make mistakes from time to time
So no man call ya, bibia be ye ye
Bibia be ye ye, ye ye ye ye
Bibia be ye ye
