Aloe Blacc Candyman

Living for tomorrow

Lost within a dream

Tryna find the answer to the question

And it seems that love makes the world feel good

Singing in the moonlight

Dancing in the rain

Let the sunshine through to lift your spirit once again

Cause love makes the world feel good

Chasing after rainbows

Somewhere in the sky

And it feels so good

Oh yeah

And it feels so good

Oh yeah

And it feels so good

Oh yeah

And it feels so good

Oh yeah

And it feels so good

Riding on the river

Of hearts that beat as one

This feels like forever and we’ve only just begun

Cause love makes the world feel good

Holding on the memories

Cause smiles are still alive

Looking to the future and there’s happiness in sight

Cause love makes the world feel good

Walking through my past life

Where the days are full of joy

And it feels so good

Oh yeah

And it feels so good

Oh yeah

And it feels so good

Oh yeah

And it feels so good

Oh yeah

And it feels so good

The Candyman can cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good

Aloe Blacc Can You Do This

[Verse 1:]

Grab your shotgun

Cock it back

Shoot the sun until the sky is black

Now I don’t know if the sun got rhythm

But he gone dance when that music hit’m

Bang, bang, bang darkness falls

In the nighttime I’m camouflage

[Pre-Chorus:]

Now I-I-I-I, don’t know who you are

But girl I wanna know if you can move like this

And I-I-I-I, don’t know if you gonna tell me

Find a stone

Shoot the moon until the night is gone

Cuz he gone rock and when my stone hit’m

Boom, boom, boom let me shine

Aloe Blacc Live My Life

I don’t wanna die young

Cause I feel my life has just begun

So many many things I wanna do before I’m done

I don’t wanna die young

And I don’t wanna die alone

I wanna be around my family and my home

I want someone to miss me dearly when I’m gone

I don’t wanna die alone

But it’s so hard to make it right, get it right

And it’s so hard to live my life, live my life

I don’t wanna die poor

But all I need is just some shelter and a floor

Seeing places that I’ve never been before

I don’t wanna die poor

I don’t wanna die ashamed

I apologise for all that I’m to blame

Paint us together, regret to burn to flames

I don’t wanna die ashamed

But it’s so hard to get it right, to make it right

And it’s so hard to live my life, to live my life, yeah

I’m just tryna live my life

I won’t always get it right

It’s a struggle, it’s a fight

But I know my future’s bright

And if you look into my heart

You will see it’s just like yours

Full of love and hope

And dreams of so much more

But it’s so hard to get it right, to make it right

And it’s so hard to live my life, to live my life

I don’t wanna die in vain

I wanna fight for you through thunder and the rain

Cause I know for me, you’d do the very same

I don’t wanna die in vain

And I don’t wanna die young

Cause I feel my life has just begun

So many things I wanna do before I’m done

I don’t wanna die young

I don’t wanna die young

I don’t wanna die young

Aloe Blacc Wake Me Up

Feeling my way through the darkness

Guided by a beating heart

I can’t tell where the journey will end

But I know where to start

They tell me I’m too young to understand

They say I’m caught up in a dream

Well life will pass me by if I don’t open up my eyes

Well that’s fine by me

[x2:]

So wake me up when it’s all over

When I’m wiser and I’m older

All this time I was finding myself

And I didn’t know I was lost

I tried carrying the weight of the world

But I only have two hands

Hope I get the chance to travel the world

But I don’t have any plans

Wish that I could stay forever this young

Not afraid to close my eyes

Life’s a game made for everyone

And love is the prize

[x2:]

So wake me up when it’s all over

When I’m wiser and I’m older

All this time I was finding myself

And I didn’t know I was lost

[x4:]

I didn’t know I was lost

So wake me up when it’s all over

When I’m wiser and I’m older

All this time I was finding myself

And I didn’t know I was lost

Aloe Blacc Santa Clause Is Comin’ To Town

Aloe Blacc Cali Dreaming

Wanna live my dreams

This is the last chance to make it, I gotta do something

With my life today

‘Cause I been doing this music thing for so long it seems that

Something’s gotta give

If I’ma stay on this long road to success

With the music I play

So I just gotta be strong and keep moving on with it

I’m not just a dreamer, I’m an intellectual coal mine

With refined rhymes like diamonds that shine

On the daily I grind, grit my teeth and push mountains full of words

With a pen to make you see clearly my troubles

All of my trifles the pressures that try to stifle

If life was holding a rifle to my head, my last thoughts would be

Simply to let my music reach to every country

Where scholars will translate it on scrolls and archive it

Where students in the classrooms of history relive it

Relive it, Because I write the words and I give it away

After it leaves my hand to the ink on the papyrus

And after I been on the stage and let the lyric fathom bust

It all belongs to y’all, that’s all end of story on it

Dropping like a bomb on the planet it’s the verbal atomic

Aloe Blacc remember me as enemy or friend

However you want, it doesn’t really matter in the end

They say it’s gonna stop

Got people telling me I’m wasting my time and that

Hip Hop’s going away

I don’t believe it though all my life I seen it grow so I

Don’t believe a word

That I be hearing from all the haters and perpetrators

So everything they say

Is just a bucket lies to get me out the way

This is my life’s work, my contribution as a public speaker

With knowledge to share and thoughts to digest

One of the freshest in the land of the west

While most niggaz measure success with the ice on they chest

I measure it with message and who spit it the best

Follow the quest like I’m the last man searching for a companion

Because when I’m dead and gone my books will still be standing

From my arial approach landing, seeing it all

Still waiting for the so-called stars to fall

Out of the polluted skies full of California dreams

People running at full speed and running out of the steam

A sparkling gleam in the eye of hopeful brothas wanting to eat

More than just the regular lunch meat, we trying to feast

On the fruits of the earth and give generous

But really men are just animals and like cannibals we been in lust

To see another man hit the dust (dust, dust)

Can’t nobody tell me what to do,

’cause I am gonna do what I want to do

This is just my way of life and

I am gonna live it for me not you
