Track Name: Queen Of Agusan
Queen Of Agusan Del Norte
Words - A. Aliermo, Music - D.Lee

She was nursed by spellbound waves
A seaside gem
She was raised by a monsoon matron
Becoming a stone's stone

She saw babes cry with bayonettes
Singing crimson lullabyes
She entranced an outlandish hawk
Letting loose her old man

She said
Please don’t die for this

She sang to nine in their bassinettes
They were small gems of her own
She was veiled but secrets unveiled
Oh mistress woman

She sent away all of her storms
And was choosing to forget
She sits in a silent haze
Calm waves to stay

She said
Please don’t die for this
Track Name: Sister And Suns
Sister And Suns
Words/Music - D.Lee

I can't go to sleep at night
There's angles in my appetite

Four years working day and night
No time for a rest in sight
Try to maintain gotta keep right
You are my reasons for being

Wanna give in wanna go out
Too early to scream and shout
Your smiles relieve my doubt
You are my reasons for being
Track Name: Nene Of The Light
Nene Of The Light
Words - A. Aliermo, Music - D.Lee

Won some scholar cash, swapped it in for shabu
I know I shouldn’t have, my bones got me to
The pendulum swings and often stumbles down
So I keep my trades, make the watch a light clown

I race my old man to detach from Yosi
I ain’t that holy
I ain’t that holy

I serenade my Ma, then tambay with my friends
I like to pretend
I like to pretend

You can win every game but have no trophy
I ain’t that holy
I ain’t that holy

Drown in an hourglass, build a castle instead
I like to pretend
I like to pretend
Track Name: Paramaribo Prince
Paramaribo Prince
Words/Music - D.Lee

He wears the badge of the family name
Trained to be a grown man from a very young age
No time for emotion
There were grades to be got
He saw white from the books the Europeans taught
Tragedy fell onto his littlest kin
The prince's heart shattered
Guilt eating within
This would last through the years, dark shadow deep
He always held my hand when we were crossing the street

I just want to be loved when I go away

He arrived by bird to the metal tower
Ice cold to the touch, he was waiting for hours
First coat from the rack with the cheapest of tags
He bought a sandwich for a quarter the american way
Found friends in all places they would take him in
All shape size and age every colour of skin
He's a lone Surnimese in this city of dreams
Tell mom he's ok and not to worry please




I just want to be loved when I go away
I just want to be loved when I'm here today

Listen to the stories for a glimpse of my life
It's been a long, long time since I felt this right
I've lived a lot of different places since I left your home
Now I'm full grown king, mama, on my own
Now I'm full grown king standing on my own
Track Name: Doñamelia
Doñamelia
Words - A. Aliermo, Music - D.Lee

I left you, oh, pearl in the rough
In search of fools gold, I’ve had enough
Lustre’s faded here we are
Two lone sails wailing through the dark

Oh little ma, no time for dolls
Arms full of cries, off she goes
Going too fast, leaving too fast
She is next in line, keeping composed
Hustling her own
Hustling alone
To the other side
She is on the other side
She's moving to the other side
She is on the other side
Track Name: Mama Pearl
Mama Pearl
Words/Music - D.Lee

When she was a little girl
Growing up in the time of a world war
Her family always had many guests
She cared for her cousin until his final breath

But she knew
That there was more to see and hear
Than all this pain and fear around
Little sights and sounds

And she taught me this

Never dress in black
Never long hair
Never defined by a false prayer

Never holding back
What she has to say
Never giving in
To a false way

Always looking up
Always looking out
Helping those in need
When their hearts bleed

Always letting in
All the little things
She can see the light
From the lightning

But she knew
That there was more to see and hear
Than all this pain and fear around
Little sights and sounds

And she lives like this
