1 Love Is My Religion (Live From Soho)

Love is my religion, Love is my religion, Love is my religion
I’ll take you to the temple tonight

 

All my days I’ve been searching, to find out what this life is worth
Through the books and bibles of time I’ve made up my mind
I don’t condemn, I don’t convert, this is a calling have you heard
Bring all the lovers to the fold, cause no one is gonna lose their soul

 

 

[Chorus:]
Love is my religion (Love is my religion)
Love is my religion (Love is my religion)
Love is my religion
Hey you can take it or leave it, and you don’t have to believe it

 

I don’t want to fight, hey let’s go fly a kite
There’s nothing that we can’t cure, and I’ll keep you in my arms for sure
So don’t let nobody stop us, free spirits have to soar
With you I share the gift, the gift that we now know oh oh oh

 

 

[Chorus]

 

Well I’m done searching now, I found out what this life is worth
Not in the books that I find, but by searching my mind
I don’t condemn, I don’t convert
This is the calling have you heard, bring all the lovers to the fold
No one is gonna lose their soul

 

Love is my religion (Love is my religion)
Love is my religion (Love is my religion)
Love is my religion
Hey you can take it or leave, and you dont have to believe it

 

 

[Chorus]

2 Dragonfly (Live From Soho)

Everybody’s worried about time
But I just keep that shit off my mind
People living on twenty four hour clocks
But we’re on a ride that never stops

 
Hey mister bee the world change but you remain the same
And I wonder how you’ll survive with the environment going down the drain
Hey miss dragonfly I see you look at me with your beautiful eyes
You must be wondering what type of creature am i

 

A dog looked at me and said ziggy why can’t we trust man
Puss and me get together why can’t you all just understand
An old tree stood there silently listening to every word we said
As a tear fell he cried what type of creature is man

 

I said hey mister tree the world change but you remain the same
And I wonder how you survive with the environment going down the drain
Hey miss butterfly I see you look at me with your beautiful eyes
You must be wondering what kind of creature am i
You must be wondering what kind of creature am i

 
Everybody’s worried about time
But I just keep that shit off my mind
People living on twenty four hour clocks
But we’re on a ride yes we’re on a ride we’re on a ride that never stops

 
Hey mister bee the world change but you remain the same
And I hope you’ll survive with the environment going down the drain
Hey miss butterfly I see you look at me with your beautiful eyes
You must be wondering what type of creature am i
You must be wondering what type of creature is man

4 Redemption Song (Live From Soho)

Old pirates, yes, they rob I;
Sold I to the merchant ships,
Minutes after they took I
From the bottomless pit.
But my hand was made strong
By the ‘and of the Almighty.
We forward in this generation
Triumphantly.
Won’t you help to sing
These songs of freedom? –
‘Cause all I ever have:
Redemption songs;
Redemption songs.

 

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery;
None but ourselves can free our minds.
Have no fear for atomic energy,
‘Cause none of them can stop the time.
How long shall they kill our prophets,
While we stand aside and look? Ooh!
Some say it’s just a part of it:
We’ve got to fulfil de book.

 
Won’t you help to sing
These songs of freedom? –
‘Cause all I ever have:
Redemption songs;
Redemption songs;
Redemption songs.

 
[Guitar break]

 
Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery;
None but ourselves can free our mind.
Wo! Have no fear for atomic energy,
‘Cause none of them-a can-a stop-a the time.
How long shall they kill our prophets,
While we stand aside and look?
Yes, some say it’s just a part of it:
We’ve got to fulfill the book.
Won’t you help to sing
These songs of freedom? –
‘Cause all I ever had:
Redemption songs –
All I ever had:
Redemption songs:
These songs of freedom,
Songs of freedom.

5 Cry, Cry, Cry (Live From Soho)

Hey… I’m gonna cry, cry, cry. Set the children free
I’m gonna cry, cry, cry. Set the children free

 
Mommy loves to work and daddy loves to play
Sometimes daddy got to go far away
I’m too young to go quiet in the night
Try to put me to sleep I’m gonna give it a fight

 
I’m gonna cry, cry, cry. Set the children free
I’m gonna cry, cry, cry. Set the children free

 
Wake you up at 5 am
Before the sunrise I’ll be your friend
And you know I don’t like for you to take too long
Just come running when you hear this song

 
[Chorus]

 
Well now….I’m gonna miss you now Mr. Far Away
Paint a picture of you and send it off today
And when you come home you can bring it back to me
Color in the lines, define this whole world for me

 
[Chorus]

 
Practice makes perfect and that I agree
So don’t be surprised that I want to be free
I know what I know and that’s all that I know
But I been told you reap what you sow

 
[Chorus]

 
Mama’s telling me what to eat today
But I don’t feel like I’m gonna go that way
What I need is something sweet and nice
What I need is a treat alright

 
I’m gonna cry, cry, cry. Set the children free
I’m gonna cry, cry, cry. Set the children free
Set the children free. Set the children free
Set the children free

 

Free up their hearts, free up their minds
Set the children free
Free up their dreams and their imagination

 

Set the children free
Set the children free

6 Higher Vibrations (Live From Soho)

These city walls
Are like a prison
Why we gotta keep on living
With our backs against the wall

 
We are creatures of love
Victims of hate
We gotta keep on living
With our backs against the wall

 

No No No
Start living on a higher vibration
Now we take it to the heights of creation

 

Perfection of divinity
Is everyone’s duty
Don’t waste your time
Living for the vanities
We are creatures of faith
Victims of destiny
Which we create

 

Now we living on a higher vibration
‘Cause we take it to the heights of creation

 

You know what I’m talking ’bout
don’t tell me no
Baby I could scream and shout
But I won’t
It’s a human experience
On another sphere
Well, it’s a human existence
On another wavelength

 

Listen to me now
Now We living on a higher vibration
Then we take it to the heights of creation

 

Let me take you little higher
And then you take me little higher

10 I Love You Too (Live From Soho)

I love you too, I love you too
I tell you I love you
I love you too, I love you too
I love you

 
When you smile I’ll smile along
When you cry my comfort comes
When you walk I’ll be beside you
Holding your hands

 
When the sun come out we play
I’ll never be far away
When you tell me that you love me
This is what I’m gonna say

 
I love you too, I love you too
I tell you I love you
I love you too, I love you too
I love you

 
Like the fish loves the sea
Like the honey and the bee
Like a lizard loves to climb up into a tree
Like a bird love to fly way up in the sky
Like a worm loves to go way down low

 
I love you too, I love you too
I tell you I love you
I love you too, I love you too
I love you

 
Like the grass loves to be green
And the earth loves to be clean
Like the sun loves to shine
And the monkey loves to climb

 
Hey, it happens naturally
And that’s the way it’s got to be
And the worm still loves to go way down low

 
I love you too, I love you too
I tell you I love you
I love you too, I love you too
I love you

 
From the first time that I saw you
I knew that it was true
There’ll be a lifelong time to spend
Around the corner around the bends

 
Up the hills and through the valleys
No matter how things change
This one thing will remain
I’ll sing it again and again

 
I love you too, I love you too
I love you too, I love you too
I love you

 
When the sun come out we play
I’ll never be far away
And when you tell me that you love me
This is what I’m gonna say

 
I love you too, I love you too
I tell you I love you
I love you too, I love you too

 
I love you too, I love you too
I tell you I love you
I love you too, I love you too

 
I love you too, I love you too
I tell you I love you
I love you too, I love you too

 
I love you too, I love you too
I tell you I love you
