Track Name: Don't Talk
We can have a conversation about anything.
How about love, and the joy it brings?
We can talk about G-d or DNA,
long as I know you can hear what I’m saying.

There are so many problems in the world today.
So don’t tell me you’ve got nothing else to say.
Don’t run away from that microphone.
Tell me something that matters,
don’t talk about the weather.

Rain clouds brewing, can’t stand around.
Give me a sign to the common ground.
I’m trying to find a way to unite.
Time to separate what is wrong from what’s right.

There are so many problems in the world today.
So don’t tell me you’ve got nothing else to say.
Don’t run away from that microphone.
Tell me something that matters,
don’t talk about the weather.

Don’t talk about the weather …
tell me how you feel … we got to keep this real …

Track Name: Count Your Blessings
We all can live without possessing.
Have faith – it’s easy if you try.
[Just] Stop and smell the roses.
Appreciate that sky.

Relax, don’t worry where you’re going.
Do not rush, it will happen when it’s time.
Keep that faith! Keep your true colors showing.
If you’re feeling poor, [no]
count your blessings.

Miracles are all around you,
don’t bother asking why.
Stop and smell the roses.
Appreciate that sky.

Relax, don’t worry where you’re going.
Do not rush, it will happen when it’s time.
Keep that faith! Keep those true colors showing.
If you’re feeling poor, oh no!
Count your blessings!

Whoa, yeah! Count your blessings.
Oh, yeah. Count your blessings … Count your blessings, oh yeah!
… Count your blessings, yeah!
Lyrics ©2012 Nick Edelstein (BMI).
Track Name: Tower Pound (King Offa)
The tower pound,
A. K. A. King Offa’s pound,
was based on the weight of one hundred twenty
Arabic silver dirhams.
Track Name: Queen Of The Nile
The dogwood wore a frown.
She almost became construction town.
I took control to save her soul
and I’m laying the ladder down.

I’ll take care of this land.
We’ll live in harmony.
I’ll give you my heart, and a helping hand;
heaven for you and me.

And you could be my queen of the Nile
if you’d just stay for a while.
Live in a river of Blues, with a love that’s true …

The oceans are warming, the weather’s getting stronger
and Earth can’t stand the pain any longer.
We may not have money, but we have soul
and together we can make this world whole.

And you could be my queen of the Nile
if you’d just stay for a while.
Live in a river of Blues with a love that’s true.

Until the Shia and the Sunni know the peace of Bahrain …
until war-torn Mogadishu shows the hope of Somaliland …
until there’s no more war in Darfur we must work to end the pain!

We can stop the poles from melting. We can learn to reuse.
We can stop drilling oil and emit less CO2.
Stop killing your cousins – the bell tolls for you!

You could be my queen of the Nile, if you’d just stay for a while.
We’ll live in a river of Blues, but with a love that’s true.
Yes you could be the queen of the Nile, if you’d just stay for a while.
We’ll live in a river of Blues, but with a love that’s true.
