Track Name: One Stop
AHI - One Stop

(Verse 1)
Easy they come, easy they go
It’s the harder they are, harder they fall
There here with you today, tomorrow gone away
Keep beggin’ you to stay, but never will they remain, yeah-hah

(Chorus)
One Stop for everything, I mean it,
You can give me what I need.
Sure shot for everything, I mean it,
You can give me all I need.

(Post-Chorus)
One stop, one stop, one stop, one stop
One stop, your’re all I need

(Verse 2)
Sweet as victory, plus the agony of defeat
Makes the possibilities measure so endlessly
There with you today, but tomorrow gone away
Keep beggin’ for it to stay, but only you remain, yeah-hah

(Chorus)
(Post-Chorus)

(Bridge)
One stop, one stop, one stop, one stop,
Sing it, sing it
Sure shot, sure shot, sure shot, sure shot
You’re all I ever need
You’re all I ever need

(Chorus)
(Post-Chorus)

Track Name: On My Own
AHI - On My Own

(Verse 1)
Stand by my side, let us walk in stride
You are who I choose
One a flame, but two the fire
You are who I choose
If I fall to help me rise
You are who I choose
One a flame, but two the fire,

You are who I choose.

(Pre-Chorus)
I need your company,
can’t possibly do this On My Own

I have come to see,
can’t possibly do this On My Own

(Chorus)
On my own, on my own, I have come to see
Can’t do this, on my own

(Verse 2)
Stand by my side, this will never die,

You are who I choose.

One can survive, two can bring Life,

You are who I choose.

If I stray to steer me righ-hight
You are who I choose.

One can survive, we can bring Life,

You are who I cho-oo-oose.

(Pre-Chorus)
(Chorus)

(Bridge)
On my, on my, on my own
On my, on my, on my o-oo-o-own
[On my, on my, on my own…]

(Chorus)

I need your company
Can’t do this on my o-oo-o-own

Track Name: Second To None
AHI - Second To None

(Verse 1)
They don’t know what I know
’Cause they don’t see, what I see
All your pain and all your misery
Can be wiped away so easily
If what is real isn’t really real,
Then what is Truth must be revealed

(Chorus)
Second to none, second to none
Be my only one, second to none,

(Verse 2)
Let them say what they want to say
’Cause in the light of day, they’ll all run away.
Let them do what they want to do
’Cause in the Black of Night, who will be there for you?
If what is real is not really real,
Then what is Truth gotta be revealed

(Chorus) x2
(Bridge)
How can they see what I see
If they don’t feel what’s in me
What is truth, what is real
Only you can, reveal

(Chorus)
[second to none, second to none…]
(Ad Lib)
Be my only one, be my only one
You’re my only, be my only one (GOD is one)
[second to none, second to none…]
Be my only one, be my only one
Lord, you’re my only one

You’re second to none

Track Name: Sirens
AHI - Sirens

(Verse 1)
Look around, nobody’s smiling anymore
Look around, who are we to just ignore
Look around, ain’t nothing easy anymore
Look around, the streets are filled with bloody war, and

(Chorus)
Si-rens, Si-rens, Si-rens, Si-rens,

(Verse 2)
Look around, there are no babies anymore
Look around, the young have nothing to live for
Look around, there are no elders anymore
Look around, the old have nothing to die for, but

(Chorus)
(Bridge)
[Sirens, Sirens, Sirens, Sirens…]
Someone’s dying, people keep crying,
[Sirens, Sirens, Sirens, Sirens…]
Black babies dying, another mother crying,
[Sirens, Sirens, Sirens, Sirens…]
GOD’s people dying, my people crying
[Sirens, Sirens, Sirens, Sirens…]
Whole world is crying, you know the streets keep crying
Sirens

(Verse 3)
Look around, nobody’s honest anymore
Look around, Truth is pushed beneath the flo-or-ooo-o-or
Look arou-oou-ound, there’s nothing sacred anymore-or-or
Look arou-oou-ound, the streets are screaming bloody war-o-o-or, and

(Chorus) x 1-1/2

Look around; our streets are screaming bloody war.

Track Name: This Is Why
AHI - This Is Why

(Verse 1)
One look in the water, the surface ain’t clear no more
And ripples don’t seem to matter
One look in the mirror, my image ain’t clear no more
And everything, begins to shatter

(Pre-Chorus 1)
No one told me, that when it crumbles
The world, is such a scary place
No one told me, that when it all falls down
The whole wide world, is such a lonely place

(Chorus)
This is why I Trust you, this is why I need you in my Life
To make it right before I die
This why I Trust you, this why I need you for my Life
Cause you alone can make it right

(Verse 2)
One look to the sky, the heavens ain’t calm no more
And all the stars, are growing dimmer
One look to the land, the earth ain’t calm no more
And everything begins to quiver

(Pre-Chorus 2)
No one told me, that when it drifts away
The world, is such a cold cold place
No one told me, that when it all fades away
The whole wide world, is such a lonesome place, and I say

(Chorus)
(Bridge)
This is why,
this is why-hy-hy,
this is why,
this is why-hy-hy

(Pre-Chorus 1)
(Chorus) [“…you alone, you alone”]

No one told me, that when it all falls down
The whole wide world, is such a lonely place
