Words: Lenny Kravitz / Music: Lenny Kravitz, Craig Ross

I'm the minister of Rock N Roll
I can heal you
I can save your soul
You better stop foolin' around
I can touch you
I can make you whole
I can bless it so it doesn't get old
Come on and turn it up loud

You can call me
You know I'll be right there
You can call me
And I'll be standing there

I'm the minister of Rock N Roll
I'll make you freak and
Make you lose control

I'm a minister of Rock N Roll
Highway to Heaven and your pot of gold
Come on and join the crowd
I'm a fire when you're feeling cold
I'll make you freak
And make you lose control
What are you waiting for now?

You can call me
You know I'll be right there
You can call me
And I'll be standing there

I'm the Minister of Rock N Roll
I'll make you freak
And make you lose control
I'm the Minister of Rock N Roll
I'll make you freak
And make you lose control

Words & Music: Lenny Kravitz

I don't want to be a star
Just want my chevy and an old guitar
I don't want to be a star
I don't need the fat cigar

My friends wonder what is wrong with me
'Cause I don't get off on my fame
I got so much confusion now
Sometimes I don't even kno my name

I don't want to be a star
Just want my chevy and an old guitar
I don't want to be a star
I don't need the fat cigar

Too many distractions run through my brain
So many girls they start to look the same
Too many options no time to choose
Too many clothes, too many shoes

I've had the world I've done it upside down
I played the part and I've been the clown
Now it's my time, it's a brand new day
To be myself in a different way
I don't want to be a star
Just want my chevy and an old guitar
I don't want to be a star
Just want my chevy and an old guitar
I don't want to be a star
I don't need the fat cigar

I got to meet all the wonderful people
I drank with Dylan boy did we act a fool
I got to meet all the fabulous people
I got high with Jagger, it was really cool

I don't want to be a star
Just want my chevy and an old guitar
I don't want to be a star
I don't need the fat cigar

Words: Lenny Kravitz / Music: Lenny Kravitz, Craig Ross

I'm crazy for this little lady
I'm freaking for my little baby
'Cause she makes me feel good
She's so fine
Don't need all my other ladies
I'm beggin' for this little lady
'Cause I tell you she's cool
She's divine
I know she's a super lady

I'm weak and I've gone hazy
I'm crazy for that lady
She's chic but she's not shady
Sophisticated lady
And she makes me feel good
She's so fine

Never knew there was such a lady
That would make me want to straighten
Out my life at this time but I find
I'm thinkin' 'bout this little lady
'Cause you know she's no fool
She's refined
I know she's a super lady

I'm weak and I've gone hazy
I'm crazy for that lady
She's chic but she's not shady
Sophisticated lady
And she makes me feel good
She's so fine

Yeah
Don't you know she blows my mind
All the time
'Cause she makes me feel good
Like real woman should
Yeah
She's so fine
Yeah

I'm weak and I've gone hazy
I'm crazy for that lady
She's chic but she's not shady
Sophisticated lady
And she makes me feel good
She's so fine

Yeah
Don't you know she blows my mind
All the time
'Cause she makes me feel good
Like real woman should
Yeah
All the time
Yeah

Words & Music: Lenny Kravitz

Calling all angels
I need you near to the ground
I miss you dearly
Can you hear me on your cloud?

All of my life
I've been waiting for someone to love
All of my life
I've been waiting for something to love

Calling all angels
I need you near to the ground
I have been kneeling
And praying to hear a sound

All of my life
I've been waiting for someone to love
All of my life
I've been waiting for something to love

Day by day
Through the years
Make my way

Day by day
Through the years

Day by day
Through the years
Day by day
Through the years
Day by day
Make my way

Day by day
Through the years
Day by day

Words & Music: Lenny Kravitz

I was converted to the other side
From the day I'd gotten there
I met a girl who took me on a ride
I was young I had no cares
When I moved to California
California

She played me records I had never heard
While we toked on purple hairs
Who, Zeppelin, Beatles
Kiss, The Rolling Stones
While we played guitars in air

When I moved to California
California California
California love

Venice Beach and P.O.P.
Station 26 was free
Jeff Ho and Horizons west
Dogtown Skates they were the best
Hang Ten, O.P. were the brands
Don't forget the two-tone Vans

I miss the Apple and my schoolyard boys
Nothing ever will compare
But now I skateboard
With my surfer girl
And we really are a pair

When I moved to California
California
California

. . .


Words & Music: Lenny Kravitz

I've gone from talkin' to walkin'
You touch me deep down inside
Oh can't you see that I'm fallin'
And I can no longer hide

You are my everything
my sistamamalover
You give me everything
I have no need to borrow
And when I think of you
You take away my sorrow
I'll always love you baby
Like there's no tomorrow

When I get up in the morning
I feel like I'm so alive
With you it never gets boring
'Cause you always get me high
High

You are my everything
my sistamamalover
You give me everything
I have no need to borrow
And when I think of you
You take away my sorrow
I'll always love you baby
Like there's no tomorrow

I'll never go with another
'Cause baby you are so fly
Don't have to live undercover
Because I don't have to lie
I don't have to lie baby

You are my everything
my sistamamalover
You give me everything
I have no need to borrow
And when I think of you
You take away my sorrow
I'll always love you baby

. . .


Music: Lenny Kravitz & Craig Ross, Lyrics: Lenny Kravitz

Fast lane
High speed
On the grind
24/7
No time
Always runnin' here and there
Chasin' the money
So much jibber jabbers
Cloggin' up our soul

Where are we runnin'
We need some time to clear our heads
Where are we runnin'
Keep on working 'til we're dead
Where are we runnin'
Oo wee oo wee oo
Where are we runnin' now

In style
Profile
Got to buy
The new Cavalli
Keep the skin tight
And the booty in the air
Don't stop the party
The road is paved but narrow
I hope we all get home

Where are we runnin'?
We need some time to clear our heads
Where are we runnin'?
Keep on working 'til we're dead
Where are we runnin'?
Oo wee oo wee oo
Where are we runnin' now

Where you runnin' girl
I see you up there
Oh you up on that stage
You up there
I saw you

Where are we running
We need some time to clear our heads
Where are we runnin'
Keep on working 'til we're dead
Where are we runnin'
Oo wee oo wee oo

. . .

Kravitz

I don't want to look around
And be turned to stone
All my darkest days awoken
I'm looking for a new way
Lead me to a place wide open

I need a love that takes me higher
So high I'm never coming down

I don't want to know emptiness
Take me down to the water
Wanna be baptized in your love
Far away from the loneliness
Take my heart and wash away the fear
Let me be baptized in your love

Everybody's going down
They end up all alone
Far too many words unspoken
I know I gotta be there, I'm ready to be shown
The path of righteousness unbroken

I need a love that takes me higher
So high I'm never coming down

I don't want to know emptiness
Take me down to the water
Wanna be baptized in your love
Far away from the loneliness
Take my heart and wash away the fear
Let me be baptized in your love

I would be a fool to let you go
With you I'm reborn
I'm no longer torn
Yeah
I refuse to lose my heart and soul
I have to be strong

I don't want to know emptiness
Take me down to the water
Wanna be baptized in your love
Far away from the loneliness
Take my heart and wash away the fear

. . .


Words & Music: Lenny Kravitz

The opportunity's takin' me over
I'm gonna put on a mask
I've got to be outrageous for my fans
I am not gonna waste this moment
Because these moments don't last
So tonight I will shake it and show my ass

Flash
makes me feel good
Feel like a queen
And it gives me all the panache
That I want
That I need
And it'll all be over in a flash

Roll out the carpet give me some exposure
'Cause soon I'll be the past
But anyway I came here to tell you 'bout my plans
Well
Let's keep this moving while people still notice
'Cause my time's going fast
And when it's over, it's over
'Cause I've got no class
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Flash
makes me feel good
Feel like a queen
And it gives me all the panache
That I want
That I need

. . .


Words & Music: Lenny Kravitz

Did I work on the battlefield?
Did I do what I thought was right?
Did I do all that I could do?
Did I put up a good fight?

Did I love all that I should?
To everyone in my sight?
What did I do with my life?

Did I exercise giving and forgiveness with all my might?
Did I honor my freedom and did I live in the light?
Did I cherish my moments?
Did I take a good enough bite?
What did I do with my life?

You can live any way you wanna
All you have to do is dance
Achieve anything you thought of
You just have to take the chance
You can fall in love with your life
'Cause that truly is romance
What did I do with my life?

Did I learn what I came to learn?
Did I listen with my heart?
Did I do what I came to do?
And how did I play the part?
Did I see all the beauty?
Because living is an art
What did I do with my life?

You can live any way you wanna
All you have to do is dance
Achieve anything you thought of
You just have to take the chance

Learn to love your life
'Cause that truly is romance
Oh what did I do with my life?
what did I do?
say it again
what did I do with my life?
Oh what did I do?
With my life
What did I do?

. . .


Words: Lenny Kravitz, Carter / Music: Lenny Kravitz

My life has taken me beyond the planets and the stars
And you're the only one that could take me this far
I'll be forever searching for your love

I walked away but I was wrong
You're the one that keeps me strong
You're the fire that keeps me warm
How will I get through this storm?

At night, I pray before I sleep in hope of finding you
I've opened up my heart, I want you to come through
I close my eyes, I'm searching for your love

I walked away but I was wrong
You're the one that keeps me strong
You're the fire that keeps me warm
How will I get through this storm?

Jay-z: I got the bounce Lenny
Check me out
Brooklyn's bad boy back again
Feet hit the ground runnin' and my back's to the wind
Angels on my shoulders, head in the clouds
No, I'm not rappin', I'm just thinkin' real loud
My karma's my armor, my charm and wit
Is like a lethal bomb, I'm warm and s***
And I did bad for good but when you're trapped in the 'hood
You do worse for less, homie earth's a test
Only god can judge me
My heart ain't ugly
But the thoughts that I drop is heavy
Try budge me
Mama loved me, pop left me
Still the homies call me lucky lefty
I'm flashy and bentley
Deceptively smart
I make hustlin' heaven and pimpin' an art
Long as I know that I'm blessed
'Cause I'm loved in depth
I can walk through the water and not get wet
I'm that fresh

I walked away but I was wrong
You're the one that keeps me strong
You're the fire that keeps me warm
How will I get through this storm?

Jay-Z: There you have it
Young hov, Lenny Kravitz
Not your average
Get your umbrella
It's raining macs and broads
all grace to god

I walked away but I was wrong
You're the one that keeps me strong
You're the fire that keeps me warm

. . .


Words & Music: Lenny Kravitz

Where do I live
Where is my wife?
I am alone
What's life worth living for?
Where am I going and what am I looking towards?
Where are my kids having their fights?
Calling my name so I can kiss their sores

I'm just a man on the run
It's a bore

So father can you tell me again
Father can you tell me again that I'm livin'
'Til I meet you on that day on the other side

I'm internationally known
With platinum and gold
I've got millions sold
But after the party, I'm left standing in the cold
I would like to be a simple man
I'd buy me a farm and live off the land
Could a wife and some children be better than being in band?

So father can you tell me again
Father can you tell me again that I'm livin'
'Til I meet you on that day on the other side

On the other side

So father can you tell me again
Father can you tell me again that I'm livin'
'Til I meet you on that day on the other side


. . .


Words & Music: Lenny Kravitz, Lionel Richie

Sometimes I think I've lost my mind
I thought I left my past behind
I live my life and all I know is
Follow your dream and don't let go

No one can live for me
No one can see the things I see
I walk this road
No one can tell me how to be
It's my destiny

There is no right, there is no wrong
There is no place where I belong

I've done my time
I've held it strong and
My life is all about this song

No one can live for me
No one can see the things I see
I walk this road
No one can tell me how to be
It's my destiny

If I threw them all away would it change?
No
I would live my life again, rearranged
There's a magic in my heart
That I feel
Don't you know that god is love
And it's real

No one can live for me
No one can see the things I see
I walk this road
No one can tell me how to be
It's my destiny

My destiny
My destiny
My destiny

. . .



When I was just a boy
Granddaddy sat me on his knees
He told me that he loved me and we were family
We spoke about the world and all the possibilities
Then he held me in his arms
He said be what you want to be

He paved the way for me to follow
Uncharted terrain now had a lane
It's how I got over

When I became a man
Granddaddy said come walk with me
He saved me in a man comes with responsibility
And always keep your word to the best of your ability
When he looked me in my eyes
He said it's time to set you free

He paved the way for me to follow
Uncharted terrain now had a lane
It's how I got over

He paved the way for me to follow
Uncharted terrain now had a lane
