Lyrics - Number One by Portugal. The Man featuring Richie Havens & Son Little

freedom
sometimes I feel like a motherless child
sometimes I feel like a motherless child
a long way from my home
sometimes I feel like I’m almost gone
sometimes I feel like I’m almost gone

when the morning came
like another’s pain
but didn’t know to fade
like the sound it made
lets go down the drain
with the falling rain
wash away the stains
in the evening shade

it’s that suffering
don’t know why it brings
such sweet memories
will be the enemy

but you’ll come out alright
I know it seems there’s no end in sight
but it doesn’t mean you can’t put up a fight
but ya don’t no no
but ya don’t no no

all the trails we blazed
have long since been paved
leading the modern age
on down memory lane
can’t turn the page
like like it’s just a phase
somehow still be amazed
that the leaves had changed

it’s that suffering
don’t know why it brings
such sweet memories
will be the enemy

but you’ll come out alright
I know it seems there’s no end in sight
but it doesn’t mean you can’t put up a fight
but ya don’t no no
but ya don’t no no
but you’ll come out alright
I know it seems there’s no end in sight
but it doesn’t mean you can’t put up a fight
but ya don’t no no
but ya don’t no no

sometimes I feel like I’m almost gone
sometimes I feel like I’m almost gone
when I need my brother
father
sister
mother
It’s gonna be alright telling white lies
late nights to sunrise
cause when we rise up we rise up above
all of the chaos to get lost
don’t make me don’t make me wake up
cause I’m gonna be like a drug
that never gets old or gives hope
but baby you make me feel loved

Lyrics
Too Good At Goodbyes by Sam Smith
You must think that I’m stupid
You must think that I’m a fool
You must think that I’m new to this
But I have seen this all before

I’m never going to let you close to me
Even though you mean the most to me
'Cause every time I open up it hurts
So I’m never going to get too close to you
Even when I mean the most to you
In case you go and leave me in the dirt

But every time you hurt me, the less that I cry
And every time you leave me, the quicker these tears dry
And every time you walk out, the less I love you
Baby we don’t stand a chance, it’s sad but it’s true
I’m way too good at goodbyes (I’m way too good at goodbyes)
I’m way too good at goodbyes (I’m way too good at goodbyes)
No way that you’ll see me cry (No way that you’ll see me cry)
I’m way too good at goodbyes (I’m way too good at goodbyes)

I know you’re thinking I’m heartless
I know you’re thinking I’m cold
I’m just protecting my innocence
I’m just protecting my soul

I’m never going to let you close to me
Even though you
mean the most to me
‘Cause every time I open up it hurts
So I’m never going to get too close to you
Even when I mean the most to you
In case you go and leave me in the dirt

But every time you hurt me, the less that I cry
And every time you leave me, the quicker these tears dry
And every time you walk out, the less I love you
Baby we don’t stand a chance, it’s sad but it’s true
I’m way too good at goodbyes (I’m way too good at goodbyes)
I’m way too good at goodbyes (I’m way too good at goodbyes)
No way that you’ll see me cry (No way that you’ll see me cry)
I’m way too good at goodbyes (I’m way too good at goodbyes)

No...
(I’m way too good at goodbyes)
(I’m way too good at goodbyes)
(No way that you’ll see me cry)
Oh...
(I’m way too good at goodbyes)

‘Cause every time you hurt me, the less that I cry
And every time you leave me, the quicker these tears dry
And every time you walk out, the less I love you
Baby we don’t stand a chance, it’s sad but it’s true
I’m way too good at goodbyes

Puro talento, sentimiento
Ay contento tengo el corazón

Con tu cumbia, tu flow, tu sabor
Ay mi vida, mi cariño, yo te quiero

A ti te quiero pa´ ba ilar el frevo

Ayo - Paname (Music Video)

MusicTelevision.Com presents Ayo and the music video to her song titled Paname

Ayo just released a new music video for her song titled Paname, which is the second music video released so far for her upcoming self titled album due out on October 6, 2017.

OkayAfrica.Com reported the following about the meaning of Ayo's song titled Paname:
.... the love song and music video for “Paname,” a beautiful and striking dedication to the “African and Jamaican” Paris she lived in for 10 years.
The song’s titled after the gypsy name for Paris (Paname), an influence from Ayo’s Romani gypsy mother.
“I got my musical wings in Paris,” says Ayo. “It was the first time I could sit down with my guitar and people would be quiet and really listen to me. It was the beginning for everything.”
“It’s about my Paris—not the Champs-Élysées part that is very rich. My Paris is when you know what it’s like to jump the fence at the Metro. My Paris is rich in African and Jamaican culture. My favorite part, musically, is the accordion sound I played on it.”
The music video for Paname was directed by Ayo. Enjoy!

Ayo - Paname

In July, MusicTelevision.Com featured the first single and music video for Ayo's upcoming self titled album. It is presently sitting in the #1 position of the Music Television Top 10 Most Played chart. The song is titled I'm A Fool. See that video here: MusicTelevision.com/2017/07/ayo-im-fool.html

And, just in case you missed this Ayo music video several years back, she a sweet cover of The Jackson 5 song titled I Want You Back.

Danny Ocean - Baby I Won't (Me Rehúso in Spanish)

Music Television presents Dannuy Ocean and his music video to his song Me Rehúso

Music Television is very proud to present Danny Ocean, a 25 year old Venezuelan born artist with a very fresh approach as a international crossover act. He is giving potential to an expansion of multi-lingual music releases from single artists or groups with his song that he released in both Spanish and English.

It is a chance for fans who learn to know the songs in both languages well, to learn a second language in the process. That is the beauty of this sort of event.

His song has a story. In 2016, it was hard for him to get a traditional Valentine's day gift to a girl he liked, who was all the way in Venezuela while he was in Miami. He wrote the song Me Rehúso as the gift.

Musically active since 2009, he released that 2016 Valentine's day song independently. After his manager's then girlfriend (now wife), Venezuelan TV host Osmariel Villalobos, posted the song to to her social media account, the song started to get noticed.

Eventually the traction broke him through and the major international record conglomerate, Warner Music Group (WMG), took notice. In June, 2017, the music industry trade magazine known as Billboard reported that Atlantic Records (a division of WMG) will work Ocean’s English language albums and singles and Warner Music Latina will work his Spanish language music.

Danny's English version of Me Rehúso is titled Baby I Won't.

Both music videos were directed by DJay Brawner. Enjoy!

Lyrics to Fiona Apple Shadowboxer
Once my lover
Now my friend
What a cruel thing
To pretend
What a cunning way
To condescend
Once my lover and
Now my friend
Oh, you creep up
Like the clouds
And you set my soul at ease
Then you let
Your love abound
And you bring me
To my knees
Oh, it's evil, babe
The way you let
Your grace enrapture me
When will you know
I'd be insane
To ever let that
Dirty game recapture me
You made me
A shadowboxer, baby
I wanna be ready
For what you do
I've been swinging
All around me
'Cause I don't know
When you're gonna
Make your move

Oh, your gaze
Is dangerous
And you fill your
Space so sweet
If I let you
Get too close
You'll set your
Spell on me
So darlin'
I just wanna say
Just in case
I don't come through
I was on to every play
I just wanted you

But, oh, it's so evil
My love
The way you've no
Reverence to my concern
So I'll be sure to
Stay wary of you, love
To save the pain of
Once my flame and
Twice my burn

You made me
A shadowboxer, baby
I wanna be ready
For what you do
I've been swinging
All around me
'Cause I don't know
When you're gonna
Make your move
