I Knew You Were the One (N. Brown /J. Rwakaara) © Copyright 2008 natfunk music BMI / Zikki Publishing ASCAP V1 I’ve loved you since the day your eyes met mine But I didn’t even know it at the time And now I’m here in your arms I took a chance and walked through the open door And every day since then I’ve loved you more Cuz you bring me joy and I’ll never let go CHORUS I knew you were the one When I looked at that picture taken from that place, soaking in the sun Was the moment I knew you were the one V2 You were the one that was always by my side And you always found a way to make me smile And it was you that was always standing by And I know I’ve told you many times before That I’ve found a love that’s truly touched my soul And that’s for sure I’ve always known CHORUS I knew you were the one When I looked at that picture taken from that place, soaking in the sun Was the moment I knew you were the one

Let’s Just Waste Some Time (N. Brown /J. Rwakaara) © Copyright 2008 natfunk music BMI / Zikki Publishing ASCAP Verse 1 Morning sunshine paints the sky The night’s a lingering goodbye And I’m so glad we got away From the same old day-to-day Making footsteps in the sand, me and you As we gather scattered seashells Touched by morning dew, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh…. Chorus: Let’s just waste some time today Let’s just stay away From the world today Let’s just leave the world behind Let’s just waste some time Baby, let’s unwind Verse 2 Far away from prying eyes The ocean bears its cool surprise We’re basking in this perfect day Until the moon lights up our way As we’re walking hand in hand, me and you There’s a feeling that this moment Is a dream come true Chorus: Oh, Let’s… Let’s just waste some time today Let’s just stay away From the world today Let’s just leave the world behind Let’s just waste some time Baby, let’s unwind (X2)

What’s Going On Next Door? (N. Brown /J. Rwakaara) © Copyright 2008 natfunk music BMI / Zikki Publishing ASCAP V1 Here I go again Covering my ears so I don’t hear it (What a doggone shame) Time and time again I close my eyes So I don’t see it (It just feels insane) But I wanna know CHORUS What’s goin’ on next door? It’s hard to tell for sure It’s not my business, no What should I do? What if that’s me next door? Would I want you to know? If I was hurting so What should you do? V2 It’s no concern of mine But I could be mistaken (It’s a chance I’ll take) There might come a time When it’s too late Someone’s forsaken (It’s a sad mistake) Still, I wanna know CHORUS What’s goin’ on next door? It’s hard to tell for sure It’s not my business, no What should I do? What if that’s me next door? Would I want you to know? If I was hurting so What should you do? BRIDGE I need to know if I’m responsible for My neighbor, or a stranger But if I wait, it might be to late For an answer Wake up people this has got to STOP CHORUS What’s goin’ on next door? It’s hard to tell for sure It’s not my business, no What should I do? What if that’s me next door? Would I want you to know? If I was hurting so What should you do?

I Wonder (J. Rwakaara/N. Brown) © copyright 2002 natfunk music BMI / Zikki Publishing ASCAP V1 She looked cold and she shivered Even though the sun was shining down Life, it roared on despite her But she couldn’t even hear the sound I could tell by the wrinkled lines Like a map criss-crossing her face She had seen much and I wondered What had brought her here to this place Pre-chorus1: It’s amazing what this life can put you through Yes it is There’s a choice to make in all the things you do Chorus: I wonder what brought her to this place Is it memories gone without a trace Seems as though she’s lost in time and space I wonder V2 She just stared straight ahead Like she was trying to concentrate Maybe if she could focus She would open her memory floodgate Something strange seemed to possess her And it would not let her go Searching deep down inside her To find a feeling she had once known Pre-Chorus2: And I wonder what this life has put her through Yes I do And I wish that there was something I could do for her Chorus Out I wonder what brought her to this place Is it memories gone without a trace Seems as though she’s lost in time and space I wonder

Leaves Are Turning (J. Rwakaara/N. Brown) © copyright 2002 natfunk music BMI / Zikki Publishing ASCAP V1 Love came Soft as a breeze in May It was whispering my name Moons came Lighting the season’s change To a secret shore, we sailed away And now Chorus: Leaves are turning once again Here we are at summer’s end Wading through the tides of time Another season comes and goes Leaves once green will turn to gold Time won’t break the tie that binds V2 One mind When two hearts and souls combine Brought together by a sacred tie Sweet wine I taste when your lips touch mine Each sip I take gets better with time Chorus Bridge: Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh Leaves are turning once again Here we are at summer’s end Wading through the tides of time Leaves are turning once again Another season comes and goes Leaves once green will turn to gold Time won’t break the tie that binds Leaves are turning once again
