Track Name: 01 SOMERSAULT Aandra ft J.Veda (4MPO original)
soon, never too soon, soon, but not too soon,
harvesting "Young's" moon

pick a fight, or pick a fault, take your time, or somersault
get to know me, get to fall, kiss like honey, kiss my soul
you taste like honey, but can you touch my soul
you make life funny, forever key to find the-for-ever-key to ma'heart

your laughter makes the sun rise,
your lips don't need to move to make things right,
your eyes could make the moon cry,
no prose fulfills a jealous hue of sky tonight

wear a face, or wear a heart, on ya'sleeve, or honest(ly)
start to show it, start to grow, kiss like you mean it, kiss like you don't
i'm relieved by your reciprocity, i believe in your responsibility to me
tumultuous waves of love like, tumultuous waves of love like

a love, alike, a love, alike, of love, of like, a love a like, hmmm mmm
Track Name: 02 BEAUTIFUL N'Dinga Gaba & J.Veda ft Josh Milan (veda vocal)
JM) life is beautiful, like the air i breathe
life is beautiful, shining all around me

(JV) beautiful... something so beautiful...

when i fall, fall, fall, into you, when i call, call, call, it’s for you
but i’m blinded to begin, soul searchin’ within
too quickly i forget, the world outside my head
to pause to stop to breathe, remember what i believe
a child, a smile, the fire, the feeling...
a face, a scar, the lines, the healing...
too quickly i forget, the world outside my head
to pause to stop to breathe, to dance til i can‘t breathe
Track Name: 03 SOFTLY From P60 ft J.Veda (veda nu jazz vocal)
did you come across the sky
would you come across the room, won’t you come across the room
come sit down by my side, by my side
come tell me ‘bout your life, tell me ’bout your life

while i sing to you softly, while i sing to you softly
and dream for us both, and dream for us both (for us both)

did i cross your mind,
did it happen more than twice, like every time you close your eyes
tell me do you like it, tell me please don’t hide it
your love leaves me excited, don’t leave it unrequited, don’t deny it
Track Name: 04 YOU AND ME A MELODY Nteeze & Andy featuring J.Veda (veda lazy vocal)
you and me, you and me, fall in love like a melody
and a bar of sharps and Cs, minors and Bs

and i’m feeling kinda lovely,
cause i know that you’re not (not) just sayin it, you’re meanin’ it,
you know what we got, these feelings that i’m feelin’
they’re the feelings we got, not just saying it, i’m meanin’ it

you know my style, you know my smile, you know that i’m shy
but you’re my kinda guy, and i’m feeling good
Track Name: 05 WHEN A.Nicholson & J.Veda ft Ursula Rucker (Jason B rmx)
"(UR) When the nights seem a little colder
When you seem to not be listening to the things that I told ya
When my heart and thoughts can no longer hold ya
Is this thing getting old to ya?

Is it? Tell me…

'Cause it's funny...
Love can be so strong & at the same time...so fragile
And rite now...I'm feeling like...
you've stopped viewing what we have as valuable
Something to treasure, to invest in, to defend
And rite now...I'm feeling like...
our dream...my dream...is coming to an end

Is it? Tell me…

When the nights seem a little colder
When you seem to not be listening to the things that I told ya
When my heart and thoughts can no longer hold ya
Is this thing getting old to ya?

Is it? Tell me…

(JV) looking for the architect of my heart,
looking for the architect of my heart
if you see him, tell him, i don't believe him,
i can't use this organ, he's done wrong
88 keys are all i need,
no heart string bleeding seeking fleeting,
love's just poetry

(UR) 'Cause you've got your politics of loving, and...
I've got mine
And this ain't no pantomime
And I don't wanna move and fake
I wanna live in realtime
So if we can't bring it back rewind
I guess it's time

Is it? Tell me…"
Track Name: 06 WANDERLUST Roque & J.Veda (veda vocal)
colour me curious,
but i've got this marvellous,
wanderlust (wanderlust)
colour me serious,
sometimes delirious,
hard in love (hard in love)

travel the world alone,
something to call my own
travel the great unknown,
everywhere i go is home
travel to be alone,
smile for strangers
travel to feel at home,
miles from danger

wanderlust, i can't be near you,
wanderlust, so i can be near you
wanderlust, dreaming is darling,
wanderlust, i've dreamed of you darling
Track Name: 07 SOMERSAULT Aandra ft J.Veda (Anthony Nicholson remix)

Track Name: 08 IN LOVE AGAIN J.Veda ft S.E.Williams (interlude)
i feel again, i feel again, i feel it again,
i feel in love again

i see it again, i sense it again,
i smell and i taste it in the touch of your skin,
i want it, i feel it, i start to believe it,
my heart on sleeve, there’s no other way to be,
when the writing is see through, the reading is deeper,
this fear is below me, it’s only there to show me,
so dream again, i feel it again

such humbling seeds,
that you’d believe in me
what an honour you’re my hero,
but you’re also my peer now
a blessing you be, when i couldn’t see
all the things that you gave me, i’m clearly still a baby
just flesh and simple bone, but you lift my complex soul
i’m human but you know me, we’re all called to be Holy
Track Name: 10 LUXURY Luka ft Jaidene Veda (veda SOS edit)
never got a second to discern the messages
never get a second to deflect a nemesis
you wanna say you wanna, you want a say, you want me
you gotta say you gotta, you got me
who loves to hate, who loves to hate,
what luxury, what luxury

never get a penny when you sell your soul, they say
never know a penny til you leave home
you wanna save you wanna, you wanna save, you warn me
do you wanna save face, do you wanna save face, you won me
what do you pay, what do you pay,
pure luxury, pure luxury

eliminate hypocrisy, eliminate
reciprocate the remedy, reciprocate
you complicate the minute, you complicate
reiterate a message, reiterate
be all you claim, be all you claim,
your luxury, your luxury
Track Name: 11 THE ONE FOR ME Elle Stilnovo ft J.Veda
please, please me, don’t treat me, like you don’t know me,
feel, see me, complete me, like you know me,
it’s not that i see ‘future’, it’s not that i feel ‘suitor’,

are you the one for me…
are you the one for me...

please, don’t please me, don’t treat me, like you don’t know me,
feel, see me, complete me, like you know me,
it’s not that i see ‘future’, it’s not that i feel ‘suitor’,

are you the one for me...
are you the one for me...

but i’ve determined
that i’m not certain
my heart is changing
and rearranging
Track Name: 12 WANDERLUST Roque & J.Veda (Reprise de Étienne)

Track Name: 13 FIRST TEACHER Jaidene Veda ft Ursula Rucker & Dr.Donny Jackson
(DJD) first teacher
gave me lullaby blood
a musicbox mouth
made sure i knew how to walk
my benediction
look at how lesson i am
a folded note
from the hand of God
first teacher
i am written
by her grace

first teacher
held my cry like newborn
whispered the secret of sunset
so i would not fear
the dark
look at how lesson i am
a testimony
from the sky
of how to love like rain

(JV) i want to be my Mother's hands

taught me how to type on scrap paper,
that sound, her speed, her poise
her fingers used to run through my hair, the only way i think of her hugging me

she said so little out loud
no room for three words
when those hands were holding up four walls
that, she did say

i admired the philippines shaped her thick, but soft, silk skin
like quiet on Jesus’ Romans
so yeah
i kneel and give praise
i want in prayer
to have her hands

she'd never cup the back of my head
we were four continents
i will be a woman when i learn to touch like that,
from a distance

i want to be my Mother’s hands

i am not Aurea
i am Aurea's daughter

(UR) ALWAYS THERE
ALWAYS AWARE
OF WHEN WOUNDS NEED TENDING
HEART NEEDS MENDING
PRAYERS NEED SENDING
ALWAYS THERE

UNAFRAID TO SPEAK THE TRUTH
HOWEVER, WHENEVER, UNPOPULAR, OPPOSED
FEARLESS, FEARLESS, BUT ALSO FEARFUL
FOR FUTURES, FOR SEEDS
TO THRIVE WITH SUN AND RAIN
BUT WITHOUT WEEDS CHOKING
PROTECTIVE GARDNER
NURTURING GARDNER
PROTECTING GROWING THINGS
NURTURING FERTILE GROUND
SEEING THINGS THROUGH TO THE MOST POSITIVE END

CREATOR OF BEAUTIFUL, BOUNTIFUL GARDENS.

TEACHER. FIRST TEACHER, OF WORDS, AND WALKING, AND BRUSHING OFF AND GETTING BACK UP WHEN FALLING, AND WISDOM, AND LIFE'S LESSONS, AND LOVE. TEACHER. FIRST TEACHER, OF LOVE, HMM.

WARRIOR. TIRELESS WARRIOR. COMING UP AGAINST EVEN GOLIATHS, TO FEND, FOR FUTURE, THE VILLAGE, THE GROWING THINGS, THE GARDEN.

ARMED WITH BRAVEST, TRUEST HEART, AND SOMETIMES TEARS, AND ALWAYS LOVE. THAT LOVE, HMM.

ALWAYS THERE.
FEARLESS.
PROTECTIVE GARDNER.
NURTURING GARDNER.
CREATOR.
TEACHER.
FIRST TEACHER.
Track Name: 14 SOLILOQUY Kristi Lomax & J.Veda ft Lady C (interlude)
sewing seeds of sisterhood here, a soliloquy of sorts
dig into the minds of the giants who paved paths, cleared pasts
humility in all ability, yet larger than the sun in my eyes
dismantle ego, when we go hand in hand, as artists, we are heartists,
and we can share our light, our life, our love, in these la laa laaa's
Track Name: 15 CLOSER (TAKE MY HAND Audiowhores & J.Veda) Veda 'Violins & Sirens' Edit ft John Bews
getting close to closer, holding back over and over
reciting prose in colour, shooting black and white like covers
getting close to closer, holding back over and over
reciting prose in colour, shooting black and white like covers

take my hand, hold my heart, kiss my face, show me love...
when you take my hand, you hold my heart...
when you kiss my face, you show me love...

you're the chord i'm looking for, like a star i never caught
you're the peace i'm praying for, in a storm that will not stop
show me silence, or show me violins and sirens
show me human touch, or show me how you'll never give up
Track Name: 16 PISCES POETRY Jaidene Veda
in Iceland, i, discovered blue so deep that i could cry
in London, i, decided i could dream like this for life
in Paris, i, would rise so early, i’ve no time to lie (lie here)
belle la vie, in my blood, i have seen this life before
you wait, you want, you write...

this pisces poetry, will keep you company,
full of “i love you’s”, “i’ll never leave you’s”
and all the words that i could say...

sweet sunlight, behind you, the myriad stars align
full of “i love you’s”, “i’ll never leave you’s”, “i’m sorry’s”
