Track Name: Nakupenda
Upepo mkali sauti ya sema nipende leo nitakupenda pia
Sauti ya vuma yanifuta machozi amua uone nitakupenda pia
Kama kweli sitoshi tafuta uone twende nawe milima tutapenda pamoja

Ndani ya roho yangu bado imeandikwa kwa dhahabu tafuta uone ntakupenda pia

Nakupenda, nakutaka
Nikupende leo, utanipenda pia

Urembo wako na uzuri wako yanifanya vyema, niokowe baibe, niokowe baibe Sinahaja na wengine baibe nakutaka wewe, siogopi kamwe nakupenda mpenzi

Upepo ya vuma yanifuta machozi, kama upepo yaja inilitee baraka
Upepo yaa vuma upepo yanimaliza, kama kweli upepo mpenzi sikiza
Naipasha sauti, sauti jangwani, kama kweli upo mpenzi sika

Japo mvua itanyesha, inyeshe leo Nitakuviringa ndani ya mikono yangu Japo mvua itanyesha inyeshe leo, Itakuwa mapenzi yangu kwako

Track Name: Twabishana
Miaka mingi ya pita miaka hairudi tena Siku nazo zina pita
Siku nazo za pita siku hazitarudi siku hazitarudi tena

Twagombana
Twabishana
Nimengi tunaona

Machozi yangu kwisha, mapenzi yetu tele, mbona hatuelewani
Vitanisiku kila, mara twaona wengi, mara hatuoni jicho
Ona leo twabishana, usiku hatuta lala
Tena kesho twabishana, mchana hatusemi neno

Vita za kila siku, vita za kila mara
Mbona hatuelewani, vita za towa jasho Wanichosha moyo , nimechoshwa vita
Vita za towa jasho baibe, mbona hatuelewani

Mbona hatusemi kitu, raha za leta shida, shida za lete raha.
Mengi tume yaona, sasa hatusemi yote, raha tumezoea.
Mengi tumeyaona mengi tunayafanya, mbona twa vunja moyo ooh!

Twagombana baby
Twabishana baby
Onatwakata moyo
Yamenishinda sana, yamenishinda baby
Onasielewi tena
Yamenikata moyo
Mbonahatuelewani
