Ledj Leo - Meditation (feat. Rosa)

Rosa : aahhhhhhhaa aaha aahaa ha ha

It's a lot of thinking, about nothing and everything
Yeahe ye he ho hu oh oh

Rosa : aahhhhhhhaa aaha aahaa ha ha

Internal meditation,
About life with passion
A little recreation

Rosa : aahhhhhhhaa aaha aahaa ha ha

My personal meditation
About my life's desisions
How to get my satisfaction
In these times of confusion

Rosa : aahhhhhhhaa aaha aahaa ha ha

How to face the situation
Of harder life's conditions
Ina spiritual communication
To cach the right illumination

Rosa : aahhhhhhhaa aaha aahaa ha ha

Kaya : live your love, the life you live, and hear the voice,
As spaeks with in, feal the vibe the time is right cause life is nice,
and let's take a strip, smoke and get hight,
meditate on why the system brings us pain,
too much people die, the situation 's hard so live in lie,
cause the wicked 's saling goods the people wanna buy.

Rosa : aahhhhhhhaa aaha aahaa ha ha

Ledj Leo - Men lebelesh (Que Te Dire ?)

Men lebelesh Men lebelesh (4X) Que te dire ?

Ye neberen fikir ahunem fem esaat – ahunem fem esaat
La braise de notre amour est toujours en feu

Be gizeh be bota bezu benerarak – bezu benerarak
Bien que nous soyons éloignés par la distance et le temps

Zare ende duro aynochuch nafekugn
Aujourd'hui comme à l'époque tes yeux me manquent

Letkerut set lidj nesh lene fre hiwot
Pour les autres tu es quelconque, pour moi tu es la graine de ma vie

Men lebelesh Men lebelesh (4X) Que te dire ?

Ye hiwote fre nesh kawokush djemero – kawokush djemero
Tu es l'essence de ma vie depuis que je t'ai rencontrée

Alemen zore now anchi yageniot – antchi yageniot
J'ai fait le tour du monde pour te trouver

Wuloye Parisen lebe Addis Ababa – lebe Addis Abeba
Mon corps à Paris et mon cœur à Addis Abeba

Tizitaye sethoni teztash lehon
Quand tu me manques je te manque aussi

Men lebelesh Men lebelesh (4X) Que te dire ?

Artist mehone bi kebdem – bi kebdem
Car être artiste n'est pas facile

Hulle anbesas mehon altchilim - altchilem
Je ne peux pas toujours être un lion

Kantchi be merake berdun gedelegn – bedun gedelegn
Loin de toi le froid me tue

Meraraw azenen be getem lewotkugn
La douleure m'a atristé, je te l'ai mis en parole

Men lebelesh Men lebelesh (4X) Que te dire ?

Ledj Leo - Travelers (feat. Kenny Allen)

We are the travellers / We travel from place to place
We are the travellers / We have no bonderies
We are the travellers / We love humanity
We are the travellers / We've opened up our hearts

Since I was born in a car I'am always on the moove, raised up in the mother land grown up to be a man by the river of Babylon, in this mix of culture I've lurned to be myself, travelling became my way of life, Citizen of the world I feed my self of the most anciant cultures.

We are the travellers / We travel from place to place
We are the travellers / We have no bonderies
We are the travellers / We love humanity
We are the travellers / We've opened up our hearts

Kenny Allen : « When I was 3, I used to travel with Red Circle and Son Beans, thèse times where proved to formulate the blue print for my hopes and dreams, some years later I found myself walking by the banks of the river Seine, next to the stèles in Axum the passive wall of Tana so serine, without the living, I would never think of giving, without the Bible I would never be surviving, in this world we got to share with all mankind of bear. »

We are the travellers / We travel from place to place
We are the travellers / We have no bonderies
We are the travellers / We love humanity
We are the travellers / We've opened up our hearts

Ledj Leo - Necessity (feat. Stix Dan)

Necessity of loving a woman
Necessity of love and affection
Necessity of sweetness and tenderness

Take my hand and let's walk together on the road of life
And step by step, get to know me and maybe love me

Necessity of beeing loved and admired
Necessity of looking to her eyes
Necessity of loving her for her pleasure

Keep your eyes on mine , when I'am stairing at you,
Hug me dance close to me, until you feal horny

Necessity of beeing good one with the other
Necessity of trusting ech other
Necessity of building our futures

Take me as Iam, nothing but myself,cause iam just a man,
trying to make his living ina wicked system

Necessity of loving a woman
Necessity of love and affection
Necessity of sweetness and tenderness

Ledj Leo - Philosophy (feat. Ethioman, Bholoja)

In the Kingdome of Love – in the Kingdome of Love
Philosophy of love – Philosophy of Love
And that theory of give and take-And that theory of give and take(harmony)

EthioMan : «Ye fikir masedessetu
Be deseta abrow sitchawetu
Telachow, chekutchow, men alleh baynore,
Fikir ena tigist, yesmama neberu » ( amharic language)

In the Kingdome of Love – in the Kingdome of Love
Philosophy of love – Philosophy of Love
And that theory of give and take-And that theory of give and take(harmony)

Love comes from the heart
And if you have a good heart
Then you can give and forgive
You can share and you can help
And expect nothing in return

In the Kingdome of Love – in the Kingdome of Love
Philosophy of love – Philosophy of Love
And that theory of give and take-And that theory of give and take(harmony)

Bohloja : «Mtsandze, mtsanze moma kubuhlungu
Mtsandze moma kumatima »(siswati language)

In the Kingdome of Love – in the Kingdome of Love
Philosophy of love – Philosophy of Love
And that theory of give and take-And that theory of give and take(harmony)

EthioMan : «Fikir wesdo mesttet ye amlak tsega now »
LedjLeo : « and lay benenor »
EthioMan : « Tekafelen begara benenor mindenow »

Ledj Leo - Forces (feat. Baco)

The future is reflect of the past, our imagination, our image of a nation still antic as greek democracie, democracie for the King and friends, but fear and starvation for the people, but where is the future for the children of Babylon and the Tiger and where is the past for the people deported for slavery.

Baco : « The world is full of contradictions, unbalanced forces of domination, nation against nation in salvation ».

The knowledge of the past history-history seems to be insignificant to the United Nations-United Nations, them are weapons salers or peace makers, you've been stilling a peace of land , a peacefull land, the promissed land and the Exodus, conspiracy theory to dominate, -to dominate divide and rule descriminate, divide and rull.

Baco : « The world is full of contradictions, unbalanced forces of domination, nation against nation in salvation ».

« We want to live and not survive, in one all nation of peace, faith and respect »(talking) I got my window opened on the entire world-entire world, and I see is crime and destruction-destruction, too much-too much hate and pain, too much-too much poverety and suicides , too much-too much competition and pression, third world has been devasted by colonisation-colonisation and still nations depend on modern nations-nations.(il y a un ouh ouh à placer à voir) Baco : « The world is full of contradictions, unbalanced forces of domination, nation against nation in salvation ».

Ledj Leo - Change (feat. Jo Lox)

The world is getting crazy and the people are getting mad
The poor is getting poorer and rich is getting richer
But what can we do,what can we say,just stand aside and look

No chance for a change(4times) (+ 2 )

I feal hurted Inside but I wont shead no tears,
For your garden politicians,
You make the world go wrong

No chance for a change(4times) (+2)

It's all about the money, it's all about beeing selfish
It's all about killing your Brother,
It's all about pride and fame.

No chance for a change(4times) (+2)

For equal rights and justice
People get together so they protest down the Streets
But what do they get ? just a bullet for a reply

No chance for a change(4times) (+2)
Jo Lox : « One batiman, one grab a gun and bust can't overstand why violence is a must, who you want trust babylon system is unjust, remember that all woman and man turn to dust, life is dangerous , rightious, versus the scandalus, Jah no fraid, there is no change in us, daily we discuss about Sellasie the King wanna wa gwan , that's why the rastaman sing .»
