1.
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

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
3.
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
4.
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

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

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
