IN THE SUN 03:15
Who told you this life would be easy Who told you love would be your friend No one history's ever made it through unscathed But what you do now can make the future change Without some pain then you'd never have the pleasure Rejection’s hard because it comes before the favour (Look in the mirror of your life) it's right before your eyes You better do what needs to be done baby … So I say … Chorus (You gotta get up), I wanna see you bathing in the Sun (That's right) … no time to waste (you gotta get it get it done) (If you want to be happy -harmony) You better stand up and (bathe in the Sun) Won’t you give me a chance to tell you my story How I became and found the very best in me … yeah It’s a truly rags to riches story I was minus under now it’s glory ‘Cause no one ever thought we could … so I say Chorus x4 (You gotta get up), I wanna see you bathing in the Sun (That's right) … no time to waste (you gotta get it get it done) (If you want to be happy -harmony) You better stand up and (bathe in the Sun)

We're always caught up with the visual Attracted to the look of the physical Aesthetically pleasing, emotions our feelings Life is more than we see Money, class and pride is elitist It breaks the world into fragmented pieces Still I hear voice of the wise Life is more than we see Is beauty in the eye of the beholder The window to your soul the truth it will tell ya Don't judge a book by it's cover ….no Life is more than we see Life ……… Life …… Life is more than we see Life it’s More Than We See …. What do we see? When you meet someone and take that first glance and you know what mean ….just sum up the person. Well you see whatever it is …. It's still our responsibilty to find the best in people, to look deeper, look beyond their faults, forgive, forget, let's build bridges don't make fires, let's love and then love just a little bit more and more …. Don't judge a book by it's cover We gotta give Love a chance if we wanna move this world on. Outro

You gave me this passion, you knew I felt it You saw the path of my journey, though I couldn’t see it You took me to a place where I’ve never been Through my gift you took away my sin Where eagles fly, angels smile and your love abides You showed me that now is the sweetest time It’s never late just always comes on time Today feels just like yester-year, when you taught me patience You taught me how to fight on, now I’m your soldier If it’s my time to leave this stage With no regrets, I’ll say goodbye and take a bow to go To eternal peaceful serenity ‘Cause I believe that now is the sweetest time It’s never late just always comes on time So never cry ‘cause now is my sweetest time It’s never late just always comes on time On time, on time on time time You loving me Always on time, on time We thank you Muhammad Ali, we thank you PRINCE For your Legacy, for teaching us how to be the best that we can be To float like butterfly and sting like a bee, to laugh and bathe in the purple rain. The tears of our hearts …tell us the end is the start

about

Renowned Author, Broadcaster and Musicologist Larry Pryce has compared UK based singer, songwriter, musician DaPaul to the great Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye, whilst other comparisons have been made to the fantastic Herbie Hancock. Regardless of this DaPaul is quite simply an accomplished artist in his own right whose time is now.

DaPaul has a special quality that connects his creatively and sense of place to listeners with the world around them. Each of his songs resonates with life in the moment and reflects the musicality of his surroundings through a lyrical content with real purpose and meaning.

The period leading to ‘London Town’ on the back of the success of his album ‘Soulful Spirit’ (that reached No3 in the UK Soul Chart) have been among his most productive; with feelings towards his beloved hometown London being the inspiration behind it.

More recently DaPaul released his single ‘LONDON TOWN’ (Christmas Mix) - December 2015) and his EP ‘In The Sun’ (May 2016).

‘LONDON TOWN’ is an up-tempo song about being a Londoner in current society and the legacy of a great city that reminded us that people are more alike than they are different, a message that has never been more relevant than in the World today. It is a song that was destined to become the title track for his forthcoming album. It is quite simply an anthem for one of the World’s greatest cities …….. London.

DaPaul will be releasing his new album ‘LONDON TOWN’ on CD on 22 November 2016. It will feature 10 songs plus 2 bonus tracks including uniquely both the summer and Christmas mix of the title track ‘LONDON TOWN’.

The album is a joyful collection of well-crafted and uplifting songs that will leave music lovers with a sense of happiness and well-being.

Among these great songs is a special treat for music-lovers, it’s a duet called ‘THE WAY I DO’ with the incredible Korin Deanna, a U.S. based Pop / R&B Atlanta artist whose recent songs featured on radio stations around the World include ‘Paralyzed’ and ‘Don’t You Tell Me (I’m Afraid).

‘THE WAY I DO” will be available from 15 October to those making digital Pre-release purchases from iTunes. Fans can also look forward to new music video featuring both DaPaul & Korin Deanna early in 2017.

Other tracks including ‘HOLIDAY’ include the delightful and emotional violin playing of Sam West.

Ultimately, this is a beautiful collection of soul-jazz, soul-pop and gospel songs that will appeal to a wide range of music lovers.

DaPaul says

‘LONDON TOWN’ “is about my journey as an individual and independent artist; I want people to know that whatever obstacles and adversity life may throw at you - believe in yourself and your given purpose no matter what others might think. If you fail get up and try again. Happiness is not a destination but a journey.”

He takes every opportunity to stress, that “no matter how hard people try to create differences and divisions, we are all ultimately the same. I hope that people will enjoy LONDON TOWN but more importantly that it will give hope and encouragement to others and the realisation of their dreams”.
