Still Making History

Still Making History

1. U COMPLETE ME

ANA POPOVIC (ASCAP), MARK VAN MEURS (BUMA)

Hard to believe
There was a time
Time when you did not belong to me

Hard to recall
My days without you
Being the centre of my world

Baby, it’s true
No one ever loved me
The way you do

U complete me

If you ever leave me baby
Baby can I come along
Everything you did without me
Can it be undone?
If you ever love another
Baby, can I be that one?

U complete me

Babe it’s you, only you
And no one ever loved me the way you do
You’ve got so much love to give
I feel complete, oh so real

2. HOLD ON

ANA POPOVIC (ASCAP), RUDIE VAN MEURS, MARK VAN MEURS (BUMA)

The place I was raised was poisoned
Power in dangerous hands
Life long toll is our price
Exclusion as inheritance

Entering the embassy
Caught up forever by damn red tapes
Sent away, not accepted
I’m not from the United States

Priorities and privileges
Are given arbitrarily
Others, like me, are
Damned to be the enemy

Getting out the airplane
Waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting in a cue
I’m the one they take aside
I’m not from the EU

I saw mosques and monasteries
Burning down in flame
The preachers of the western god say
It’s me who takes the blame
I heard politicians screaming
For what I have to stand
My election days are over
We’ve got to make a stand

Easy to crucify Hard to unify Hold on...

Priorities and privileges
Are given arbitrarily
Others, like me, are
Damned to be the enemy

Easy to crucify Hard to unify Hold on...

3. BETWEEN OUR WORLDS

ANA POPOVIC (ASCAP)

We’re building
Bridges of compromise
We’re building
Whispers of acceptance
We’re building
Stacks of analyses

Between our worlds

We’re building
Understanding but no solution
We’re building
More peace resolutions
We’re building
Hope slash illusion

Between our worlds

Somebody pull the trigger
For a fair start
Woman of 28 down in Africa
Lives the same life a world apart

Everybody deserves a chance
Who’s here to take and who to give?
Women of 28 down in Africa
Deserve the life I live

I wonder Where’s the justice
I wonder Where’s the pride
While I look at the truth
From another side

I wonder where’s comfort
And a place to hide
When I look at the future
Of another child

It’s not what’s within
It’s what we do
You could be me and
I could be you

It’s what makes us alike
And it cuts like a knife
We don’t need another hero
To save somebody’s life

4. IS THIS EVERYTHING THERE IS?

ANA POPOVIC (ASCAP), MARK VAN MEURS (BUMA)

In front of the mirror
Again and again
The same lonely man is staring at him
After tonight
And for the rest of his life
Never alone
Reflection

Where would she go?
Who would she call?
A same lonely choice
Is waiting for her
Another night
Won’t find me alone
Longing for your
Affection

Is this everything there is?
Is this everything
Am I living it right?
Is this everything
Is this everything there is, is this everything

They’re in need of love
But short of words
And still they sit alone
So close but like
Miles away
The world knows a new
Attraction

Who’s about to make a move?

Tonight…
She can’t keep her eyes
Away from him
She’s waiting ’till closing time
Not her
Direction

6. DOUBT EVERYONE BUT ME

ANA POPOVIC (ASCAP)

Some say that I want
Other kind of love
That you’ll abandon
Your faith in me
And worthy your trust
I won’t ever be
Baby doubt
Everyone but me

Some say I won’t ever
Learn to know you good
Some say I can’t even
Know the way you feel
Some say that I won’t
Love you right
Oh baby Doubt
Everyone but me

Baby did it ever cross your mind
To doubt what they believe
Did it ever cross your mind
You’re the one for me

Some say we were never
Really meant to be
And we’ll become the prisoners
Before we make each other free
Some say we
Don’t know how to love
Doubt everyone
Everyone but me

7. YOU DON'T MOVE ME

8. STILL MAKING HISTORY

ANA POPOVIC (ASCAP)

It has come to light
It will ease your mind
When you realize that the source of all fears
Is present as faith and old as mankind
No more wars, no more pain, no more loneliness
And no worries
Another circle around the sun
We're still making history

And all the sleepless nights
Won't make me know better
And all the cried tears
Won't awake the wisdom in me
That all hurts, the more we search
The less we see
Another circle around the sun but
We're still making history

How much more anger will be awaken
Who's got the power to choose?
How many more lives needs to be taken
How much do we gain? How much do we lose?
There’s no freedom that asks for no alert
No wisdom of war that won’t weaken the earth
How much more we’ll live in vanity before
All, all of us are hurt

Hope is a sun light before the dawn
Peace is a battle never truly won
Seems like the end of the game now
Unbearable wish to escape as far as we can
Just like belief will mask for the troubled times
All victories are cover stories for the hidden crimes
Why don’t we give the peace another chance?
We’re still making history

9. MY FAVORITE NIGHT

ANA POPOVIC (ASCAP)

I’m gonna feel your skin
I’ll kiss your eyes
I’m gonna hear your words
I’m gonna love your mind
I’ll adore becoming
Just your territory
I’ll watch you walk
I’ll be your kind

This is gonna be by far my favorite night

I’ll taste your skin
I’ll hear soul
I’m gonna pray for you
I’ll fulfill your love
I’ll place your hands
Between my thighs
I’ll see my reflection
In your eyes

This is gonna be by far my favorite night

And I’ll cry
On your shoulder
And I’ll scream your name
From the top of my longs
You and I
Became one
I’ll loose myself
In your arms

10. HOW'D YOU LEARN TO SHAKE IT LIKE THAT?

11. SHADOW AFTER DARK

ANA POPOVIC (ASCAP)

What hope for a generation?
Grown up behind the bars
What can history teach us?
When it’s covered with scars
We learn to swim
But we’re swimming with sharks
Time is hard, you better
Trust no shadow after dark

They’ll imprison your soul
Imprison your mind
Cause today you learn to kill
Tomorrow to be kind
They sure know how to bite
Without leaving a mark
Time is hard, you better
Trust no shadow after dark

Small hopes to resist my friend
We've already marked
Do what you got to do just to try
Small hopes to resist
The only left reason to live
is a reason to survive

Small hopes to resist, my friend
We’re already marked
You watch them burn it all in flames
Once just a spark
You watch them build a graveyard
Out of a park
Time is hard, you better
Trust no shadow after dark

13. SEXIEST MAN ALIVE

TERRY MAN, ANA POPOVIC (ASCAP)

Every breath he takes he takes with style
You can only have him for a little while, but that’s alright
He can break your heart when he holds your hand,
And make you want to change your plans for just one night.
And when he takes you in his arms,
Something else besides his charm holds you there,
Somethin’ that you can’t define,
That’s got a grip on your mind, but you don’t care.

He’s the sexiest man alive
What a sexy man

The beast within has got control,
With eyes that pry and haunt you soul and won’t be tamed.
He’s a whisper in a world of shouts,
and even though you have your doubts you’ll play his game.
Some might call him a natural man,
But he don’t care to understand what they may say,
Attitude you can’t learn from books,
And when he wants he’s got a look that takes your breath away.

He’s the sexiest man alive
What a sexy man

On any street, any town, any time he comes around, there’s somethin’ in the air.
He can hold you close, turn you on,
and though you know he’ll soon be gone, you just don’t care.
Could be his style, could be his class
That drives you wild ‘til your heart beats faster in your chest
He’s the kind of man that you got to try,
just one time before you die and forget the rest.

He’s the sexiest man alive
What a sexy man
