Let’s go to bed Verse 1 You fill your jeans like it’s inspired, your wicked little ass, driving me so wild. You move your ass like it’s insane. Shake it, shake it, shake it baby I can’t stop staring Chorus You come to me, I surrender whole. God bless me with your beautiful soul. With all your riches I need no more. Let’s go to bed so we can get real raw. Verse 2 Those eyes of yours are deep brown wells They drag me in and grip tearing me from hell Your lips so full and luscious red They invite me in tearing me from hell Chorus You come to me, I surrender whole, God bless me with your beautiful soul. With all your riches I need no more. Let’s go to bed so we can get real raw Bridge Now that I’m here won’t you give it up, your beautiful love, your beautiful love Verse 3 Yes when you smile I lose my head. You melt my stone cold heart, saving me from hell Your mind inspires, it sparks new life. You break me from my trance I feel so alive Chorus You come to me, I surrender whole, God bless me with your beautiful soul. With all your riches I need no more. Let’s go to bed so we can get real raw Bridge Now that I’m here won’t you give it up, your beautiful love, your beautiful love. Your beautiful love, your beautiful love. Your beautiful love, your beautiful love

It’s Too Late For Tears Chorus: It’s too late for tears, let it rain. X2 Verse 1: In this ship of fools, we all belong. Blinding ourselves from what’s been going on. We blame them all, for what they’ve done. But it’s we, who let it go on and on. Chorus: It’s too late for tears, let it rain. It’s too late for tears, let it rain. Verse 2: Mothers, crying for their sons. Their lives just started, now they’re gone. Mr General where’s your son? He’s nice and safe, he’s at home. Chorus: It’s too late for tears, let it rain. It’s too late for tears, let it rain. Verse 3: We need courage and strength, to start to act. Vision and faith, to show the path. And the love, to do what’s right. Then the rain, can be left behind. Chorus: It’s too late for tears, let it rain. It’s too late for tears, let it rain. It’s too late for tears, let it rain. It’s too late for tears, let it rain crying shame. Let it rain, crying shame. Oh, let it rain, crying shame. Let it rain, crying shame.

Don’t Let Them Tell You Verse 1: Don’t let them tell you, that you’re not enough. Tell you you’re nothing, when you’re alone. Don’t let them teach you, you’re the weaker sex. Don’t let them steal, your happiness. Chorus: But you walk in wish of, finding love. Your souls so lonely, you can’t fill it up. And you wonder when it, all will come. You feel you’re not a woman when you’re, all alone, when you’re all alone. Verse 2: Don’t make me king, of your choices. Just make me ruler, of your love. Fight for what you want, don’t let them give you up. Don’t give them away, choices are your freedom to say. Chorus: But you walk in wish of, finding love. Your souls so lonely, you can’t fill it up. And you wonder when it, all will come. You feel you’re not a woman when you’re, all alone, when you’re all alone. Verse 3: SOLO Chorus: SOLO Chorus: But you walk in wish of, finding love. Your souls so lonely, you can’t fill it up. And you wonder when it, all will come. You feel you’re not a woman when you’re, all alone, when you’re all alone, When you’re all alone, when you’re all alone.

Whiplash Verse1 Struggle! It fills our lives, but we learn to fight on. From poverty and greed, addiction; where are we going wrong? What to do, what to say, what we need to fell alright, I need a minute to stop If I can stop spinning trying to survive I might be ready to rock Chorus I’m calling whiplash. World is spinning way too fast. Whiplash, so much spinning can’t find my ass Verse 2 Love! Is slipping by, all I do is work on. I got stuck paying bills, passing ladies by, would be so nice to say hello So swipe it right, what to do, swipe it left, it’s all too hard, to catch a ladies’ eye This loneliness we feel in a crowded room is killing us slowly we don’t realise. Chorus I’m calling whiplash. World is spinning way too fast. Whiplash, so much spinning can’t find my ass Bridge So you try to control out minds Oh, but we’re gonna fight on We now know your game Lord do we gotta play on. Chorus I’m calling whiplash. World is spinning way too fast. Whiplash, so much spinning can’t find my ass

Need someone's hand to lead me through the night I need someone's arms to hold and squeeze me tight Now, when the night begins, I'm at an end Because I need your love so bad I need some lips to feel next to mine Need someone to stand up and tell me when I'm lyin' And when the lights are low, and it's time to go That's when I need your love so bad So why don't you give it up - and bring it home to me Or write it on a piece of paper, baby - so it can be read to me Tell me that you love me, and stop drivin' me mad Ooh, because I, I need your love so bad Need your soft voice, that talked to me at night I don't want you to worry, baby I know we can make everything alright Listen to my plea, baby, bring it to me Because I need your love so bad Written by John Jr. Mertis • Copyright © Warner/Chappell Music, Inc, Carlin America Inc, BMG Rights Management US, LLC

Eleanor Rigby By John Lennon and Paul McCartney Verse 1: Eleanor Rigby, picks up the rice in the church where the wedding has been, Lives I a dream. Waits at the window, wearing the face which she keeps in the jar by the door. Who is it for. Chorus: All the lonely people, where do they all come from. All the lonely people, where do they all belong. Oh, look at all the lonely people. Oh, look at all the lonely people. Verse 2: Father McKenzie, writing the words of a sermon that no one will hear. No one comes near. Look at him working, darning his socks in the night when there’s nobody there. What does he care. Chorus: All the lonely people, where do they all come from. All the lonely people, where do they all belong. Oh, look at all the lonely people. Oh, look at all the lonely people. Verse 3: SOLO Chorus: SOLO Chorus: All the lonely people, where do they all come from. All the lonely people, where do they all belong. Oh, look at all the lonely people, oh, look at all those lonely people, Oh, look at all the lonely people, oh, look at all those lonely people.

You’re Killing Me Verse 1: You’re my bitch, and I’m your dog, don’t let them take my balls. I’m your Jack and you’re my Jill, don’t push me down that hill. You’re the foot and I’m the shoe, stay away from that dog shit. Chorus: Don’t abuse me, because I want to stay. You’re my poison of choice baby, that leads me astray. I can’t believe, you make me do the things you do. You’re so bad for me, but it feels so good. Verse 2: You be bunny, and I’ll be the rabbit, myxomatotic can be our habit. I’m the bush and you’re the match, don’t turn me into ash. I’m the music and you’re the band, don’t let me sound like a boy band. Chorus: Don’t abuse me, because I want to stay. You’re my poison of choice baby, that leads me astray. I can’t believe, you make me do the things you do. You’re so bad for me, but it feels so good. To End: You’re my bitch, and I’m your dog. You’re my bitch, and I’m your dog. You’re my bitch, and I’m your dog.

Wake Up Verse: - Wake up people, before you lose your heads. Can’t you see where we’re going, let’s make a mends. Wasting this, using that, when’s it going to end? We’ll be kings of the castle, with nothing to spend. Chorus: Crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy, it’s doing my head. People walking around, like the living dead! Crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy, it’s doing my head. Wake up people! It’s time we start to mend. Life, before it ends. Verse: - We let the players, rule our lives. We give away our power, and that’s not right. Be they leaders of countries or business. Wake up people! Their using us, calling it success! Chorus: Verse: - Peaceful revolution, is what it takes. Wake up to the power of the masses, then we can’t fail. Say no, to the greed and the violence that prevails. If we say no together, it’s got to change. Chorus:

"Soul Messengers’ sound is deeply rooted in soul, R&B and funk. It’s a sound that’s simultaneously dirty and luxurious." Huffington Post

Soul Messengers' 3rd studio recording, Vision & Faith is the follow up to 'Dirty Soul', which reached #12 in the Australian Blues and Roots chart in 2015.

The album was recorded at Sydney’s Q Studios, mixed at Half Mile Harvest Studios by Sam Teskey of Melbourne Soul outfit ‘The Teskey Brothers’ and mastered by Sydney master audiologist Rick O’Neil at Turtlerock.

Lead singer and songwriter Richard Aljinovic explains: "We really think this is our best work to date. The arrangements and sound on the tracks are more ‘us’ than ever. With Sam Teskey mixing we’ve got someone who really is into and understands that true soul sound. We just love how he has taken care of this record."
