about

This album is the result of a long journey... Alive as everything in the universe, through the joys and the pains of the humain experience. Music is the pulse of life, can you feel it? Of course you can... Letting die everything that is not us and wake up one more time into what we really are. This is what it's all about... Remember?
With love,

Ayema

Cet Album est le fruit d'un long chemin... Vivant, comme tout dans l'univers, à travers les joies et les peines de l'expérience humaine. La musique est la pulsation de la vie, pouvez-vous la sentir? Bien sûr que vous pouvez... Laisser mourir tout ce qui n'est pas nous et s'éveiller une fois de plus à ce que nous sommes vraiment. Voilà tout ce dont il s'agit... Vous souvenez-vous?
Avec amour,

Ayema

Track Name: Alive
Alive
Ayema / Ayema

I can wait
it’s never too late
but it’s really time for a new start
indeed, I’m ready
and all of these words come from my heart
you say, that maybe
there is no more space for what is right
and I pray, every day
to finally be one with you
ready to cry with you
until the time you release your mind
I’ve been to hell and I can tell you it’s a lie
ready to die with you
to realise that we were blind
you can even fail however much you try

I can tell you I’m alive in you
Sometimes to live you need to die it’s true
Right here right now tells you what to do
Just never forget that I love you

I can wait
It’s never too late
I even see you shining in the night
Today, I can pray
For us to bring the darkness to the light
There’s nothing to overthink when you’re in the flow
We’ve been lost for too long now we need to grow
Ready to cry with you
Until the time you release your mind
I’ve been to hell and I can tell you it’s a lie
Ready to die with you
To realize that we were blind
You can’t even fail however much you try

I can tell you I’m alive in you
Sometimes to live you need to die it’s true
Right here right now tells you what to do
Just never forget that I love you

I’ll tell you what is true
The universe is speaking to you on and on
It’s in you, calling you
This force in you never will be gone
Where are you? We need you!
Look what the ego’s world has done
I’m asking you, now are you ready?

I can tell you I’m alive in you
Sometimes to live you need to die it’s true
Right here right now tells you what to do
Just never forget that I love you
Track Name: Feel the music
Feel the music
Ayema / Ayema

I like when the snare bangs like that
When the bass line falls like that
When the kick bounces like that
When each bar is hit like that yeah
Hear the guitar's back beat comes
A peace of reggae in my soul
A bit of blues please give me some
I love the place where the music comes from

Inspiration
My medication
The notes of my passion
The melody of my religion

Feel the music grow
Make it blossom in your soul
I hope you really know
What I'm talking about now

I fell asleep with the music yesterday
She told me that now I have to play
No reason for you to go away
Listen to me to every note i say
I woke up with the music in my head
In my dreams it played none stop with no fade out
This morning I'm dancing in by bed
You know i have to share it i can't keep it for myself

Feel the music grow
Make it blossom in your soul
I hope you really know
What I'm talking about now
Hear the music flow
Like a river in your soul
I hope you really know
What I'm talking about now
Track Name: Your story
Your Story
Ayema / Ayema

Chorus:
Only you chose what you can write
As you know the today’s page is white
And you can never stop
Don’t give it up
‘Cause that's your story
not one adventure is the same
each one has a unique name
Just don’t give it up
You can never stop
And that’s your glory

Versus 1:
Life is a big book to write
That’s not easy that’s right
To be the pen crying the joys and the pains of your story
You may be lost someday
Shedding black tears looking for your way
Don’t forget that today
You’re the writer of your life so just try to stay true

Chorus

Versus 2:
I know they love to fight
For the top spot that’s right
And they’re lying all the way
And they will die someday
All they can have here is not to take away.
Don’t forget that today
We’re composing tomorrow
All together it’s true.

Chorus

Bridge
You write your story
Write down some words of peace today
Even draw some love today
We’re writing our life today
And so our future too
Ho All together it’s true

Chorus

Ho yeah
Cause that’s your story
Know what you’ve got to know
And write your story
It’s what we’ve got to know
But It’s just a story
Track Name: You make me strong
You make me strong
Ayema / Ayema - Yogev Benjosef

Lying on the sand looking at the stars
On this warm summer night
As if Venus was dancing with mars
Under the rain of the moon light
Reflecting in your eyes
All the magic of this moment
It’s just something that I could never forget
There’s nothing I can do
I just want to be with you yeah

Cause you make me strong
You make me feel so good
When I wake up and I feel your body
I am right in the mood
Yeah

You gotta know that
You gotta know

You make my life so nice
You gotta know
The only drug I need is you
Every day you turn on the light in me
And when the evening comes
I feel the fire in you
I don’t how long this will last
But I do know this is real
Every moment every minute
Carved in the stone for ever

You make me strong
You make me feel so good baby
When I wake up and I feel your body
I am right in the mood
Yeah

But now the time is over
Even if we are woven to the other
I don’t want to say goodbye
But we both have things to do
Going back to the real life too far from you
Ho no no no

You make me strong
You make me feel so good baby
When I wake up and I feel your body
I am right in the mood
Yeah
Track Name: Get on the train
Get on the train
Ayema / Ayema


Waking up every morning, everyday feels the same...
Always the same routine, I`ve been trapped inside the game.
Always the same black coffee, real dark news on TV
Take a look in the mirror and tell me what you see.
So many bills to pay, longing for holidays,
extra hour s in a job that isn`t me,
Have I no choice but to stay?
I`m slowly fading away.
Wake up my friend, otherwise you gonna break.

Anytime you feel the pain
You can just let it down
Get on the train,
Any time you feel in chains,
It`s only in your mind
Get on the train

Not just another day, but the only one you have
You`re sitting by the bay, but take a leap and start to dive




Let the river take you, let the river cleanse your pain
You don`t have anything to do, but everything to gain
Follow the track and leave that known station
Don’t hold yourself back you will find your salvation
I know you walk for too long in the rain
But let go of you sorrow and get on that train


Anytime you feel the pain
You can just let it down
Get on the train,
Any time you feel in chains,
It`s only in your mind

Get on the train

Leave that know station on that train
Forgive everyone, just get on that train
Follow your passion, and get on that train.
The journey is the destination, get on that train
Track Name: Every day
Everyday
Ayema / Ayema - Yogev Benjosef

Everyday can be brand new start
To see life in a new fashion
No you don’t need anything for that
Just see it for what it really is
It’s only up to you to find out
All the meaning you want to give to it
Cause your create your life everyday

Feeling the flow
Guided by the stream
Of something you already know
Cause you just have to use your imagination
Just put your head on the ground
And feel mother earth

Then you’ll know
What you can trust
Cause if you want to advance
You’ve got to let go
Of the manipulation
And all the mind control
Try to search inside
There’s anything you can find


If every day when you wake up you ground yourself into the nature
Then you’ll know you’re in the right direction to the place you want to be
Let the love inside to be the guide let the love to lead you further
Try to let your mind find fly away

Like a seagull
Over the bay
Gliding to the freedom
Breathing the sunrays

Let’s go
Have walk on the shore
I stare into your eye
You are so beautiful
It feels so right
You light my soul
Can you feel this power?
That we can’t control

Everyday reveals a mystery you’ve got to dig to find the answer
You can always let go of the things that don’t fit with who want to be
Cause there love enough for everyone
There is enough to heal the nations
And we can grow this love everyday
Every day, day, day, day, day
Track Name: Demons in the fire
Demons in the fire
Ayema / Ayema
I know you feel there's too much pressure
And too much weight
Ho yeah I know how much you try
But now you say
You don't believe no more
And the wolves are at the door
A Black and a white there's a war in yourself
You know there is a place
Where you'll always belong
When you don't know where to go and what to do
Don't be afraid
cause you're always the one in control

Throw your demons in the fire
Walk away
Throw your demons in the fire
Walk away

Curled up in the dark
Shadows all around
You believe all is lost
Not even a spark
Not even a sound
You never been so down
And now you understand
That you'll never be the same
Now you can choose
To create something else ho yeah
You know there is this place
Where you'll always belong
And this is where you go, this is you
Don't be afraid
Cause you'll always be one with the whole

Throw your demons in the fire
Walk away
Throw your demons in the fire
Walk away
Track Name: No more
No more
Ayema / Ayema

This is one of those times
Silent streets on Saturday night
I don’t know what to do
Fangs of hatred wants to bite
Bloody smell of fear
And a taste of revenge in the news, come on,
How much pain do we need now?
To finally understand that

We can say No more, no more…
And find a way to reveal the truth.
That why I say no more no more…
Stop to give your voice to those who are deceiving you

From the top of his tower
Even the devil wears a tie
Ignorance is his power
With all that he needs you to buy
Not a word is true
Is deception all that we knew ho no
Now the world is waking up
It’s time to understand that
We can say No more, no more…
And find a way to reveal the truth
That why I say no more no more…
Stop to give your power to those who are killing you

Wake up brother, get up sister
We’re on the same boat all together
And yet here you stand with all what you’ve been through
I believe in you
It’s not too good to be true
Even if it’s hard for me too
There’s always hope cause there’s always something left to do

We can say no more, no more
And find a way to reveal the truth.
That why I say no more no more…
Stop to give your power to those who are killing you
Yeah he

We can say No more, no more…
And find a way to reveal the truth
That why I say no more no more…
Don’t give your voice to those who are deceiving you

No more, no more…
Track Name: Dream
Dream
Ayema / Ayema


Chorus:
I’m in a dream
And I’m flying above valley
It feels so real
At the speed of light around the Milky Way
Life is dream
And I wake up more and more everyday
It’s not so real
Remember it’s only a play.

Versus 1:
And I am floating in the air
What a feeling of freedom
And I’m going, I don’t where
Maybe in a golden kingdom
There is a lion living there
With a sacred wisdom
He may have something to share
Something to go on this rhythm…





Chorus

Versus 2:
As I passed the huge entrance
Made of stars and precious stones
The vibration was so intense
Amazing sounds with wonderful tones
I know I was dreaming
But nothing ever felt so real
I saw this giant Lion King
But without crown and steal

Chorus

Final:
And the lion told me,
“Remember brother love is your birthright”
“Remember brother that you’re made of light”
“Remember brother there’s no need to fight”
“Go now and tell them what I said…”
