India Arie - Ο κόσμος όλος ένα Ghetto...



India Arie Ghetto




India Arie Ghetto Lyrics:


There are places in Havannah,

That remind me of Savannah.

Parts of West Virgina,

That might as well be Kenya.

Parts of New York City,

Parts of Mississippi.

Parts of Tennessee,

Look like another world to me.



[Chorus]

Oh, oh oh, Ghetto-o-o-o,

Might as well be another country.

Barrio-o-o-o,

Might as well be another country.

When you look around,

You live in another

country too (too).



To be hungry in L.A.

Is just like starving in Bombay.

Homeless in Moracco,

Is a shelter in Chicago.

Right around the corner,

Just down the road.

Right before your eyes,

Right under your nose.



[Chorus]

Hey, the ghetto-o-o-o

Might as well be another country.

Barrio-o-o-o,

Might as well be another country.

When you look around,

You live in another

country too (too).



Now the dictionary says,

That the ghetto is a place

Of minority, and poverty,

and over population.

We live on this earth together,

ain't no separation.

When you're looking down,

From outer space.

We’re just a human race

and the world is a



[Chorus]

Ghetto-o-o-o,

Listen every place and every country.

Barrio-o-o-o,

it's in every place

and every country.

When you look around,

Do you see your brother when you

Look around?

it's a small world after all.

Look around,

You live in another country too.

(Ghetto) South Africa’s a ghetto

(Ghetto) Brazil is a ghetto

(Ghetto) Israel is a gheto

Lyrics: Ghetto, India.Arie [end]



Η India.Arie είναι μια ακόμη καταπληκτική black singer  της Αμερικάνικης neo Soul music και Rhythm and blues. Oχι μόνο τραγουδίστρια, αλλά και τραγουδοποιός (στίχοι/μουσική), μουσικός (παίζει καταπληκτικό φλάουτο, κιθάρα) και μουσική παραγωγός.

Η γυναίκα δεν παίζεται! Παραμένοντας έξω από το star system επιδιώκει συνεργασίες που φέρνουν σε πρώτο πλάνο τη μουσική φλέβα που ρέει ανυπόταχτη κάτω από το μαύρο δέρμα των καταπληκτικών αυτών μουσικών της Soul/Rhythm and blues music.
Μουσική που έχει κάτι να πει και όχι απλά να βγάζουμε δίσκο κάθε χρόνο γιατί το σύστημα το απαιτεί… Ξέρετε πολλούς καλλιτέχνες στην Ελλάδα που να διεκδικούν αυτό υο δικαίωμα και να το υποστηρίζουν κρατώντας αποστάσεις από τον κόσμο των μίντια; Εγώ ξέρω μια…



Ready for love



I am ready for love
Why are you hiding from me
I`d quickly give my freedom
To be held in your captivity

I am ready for love
All of the joy and the pain
And all the time that it takes
Just to stay in your good grace
Lately I`ve been thinking
Maybe you`re not ready for me
Maybe you think I need to learn maturity
They say watch what you ask for
Cause you might receive
But if you ask me tomorrow
I`ll say the same thing

I am ready for love
Would you please lend me your ear?
I promise I won`t complain
I just need you to acknowledge I am here

If you give me half a chance
I`ll prove this to you
I will be patient, kind, faithful and true
To a man who loves music
A man who loves art
Respect`s the spirit world
And thinks with his heart

I am ready for love
If you`ll take me in your hands
I will learn what you teach
And do the best that I can

I am ready for love
Here with an offering of
My voice
My Eyes
My soul
My mind

Tell me what is enough
To prove I am ready for love

I am ready


Brown skin





Brown skin

Brown skin, you know I love your brown skin
I cant tell where yours begins, I cant tell where mine ends
Brown skin, up against my brown skin
Need some every now and then'¦oh hey'¦

Where are your people from? Maybe Mississippi or an Island
Apparently your skin has been kissed by the sun
You make me want a Hershey's kiss, your licorice

Every time I see your lips, it makes me think of honey-coated chocolate
Your kisses are worth more than gold to me
I'll be your almond joy, you'll be my sugar daddy

Brown skin, you know I love your brown skin
I cant tell where yours begins, I cant tell where mine ends
Brown skin, up against my brown skin
Need some every now and then'¦oh hey'¦

Every time you come around, something magnetic pulls me and I cant get out
Disoriented, I cant tell my up from down
All I know is that I wanna lay you down

Every time I let you in, abracadabra magic happens as we swim
Higher and higher finally we reach heaven
Come back to earth and then we do it all again
Yeah'¦..

Brown skin, you know I love your brown skin
I cant tell where yours begins, I cant tell where mine ends
Brown skin, up against my brown skin
Need some every now and then'¦oh hey'¦

Skin so brown, lips so round
Baby how can I be down?
Beautiful mahogany, you make me feel like a queen
Tell me what's that thing you do that makes me wanna get next to you, yeah

Brown skin, you know I love your brown skin
I cant tell where yours begins, I cant tell where mine ends
Brown skin, up against my brown skin
Need some every now and then'¦oh hey'¦

Brown skin, you know I love your brown skin
I cant tell where yours begins, I cant tell where mine ends
Brown skin, up against my brown skin
Need some every now and then'¦oh hey'¦
