Heavypoetry This album can be played front to back without skipping one song. This is a masterpiece. Classic. Magnum Opus level music right here. It is so good I bought the vinyl and I ain't no DJ. Vocals are butta. Instrumentation out of this world. Easily could have won a grammy even with the artists nominated in the same category. My favorite album of the year. I am not one to leave comments on the internet, but this project merited it. This breaks the mold. Music by actual musicians... what a concept! Favorite track: Hey (Extended Mix).

about

KING Los Angeles, California

Twins Paris and Amber Strother and musical sister Anita Bias are electro-soul trio KING. In 2011, KING released their debut EP to much acclaim- The Story, Supernatural, and Hey made up the introduction to their dream-pop sound.

KING’s smooth vibe and intricate production evolved beautifully in their home studio, a product solely of the three women and a result of their Minneapolis and LA roots.

Track Name: The Right One
People come our way to try and stop our love but

They don’t know that love is what we are

They’ll say what they say but my mind’s made up
I’m giving you my heart

Don’t care what they
 say, they don’t see it our way
You are the right one

We’ll keep going, rolling, on our way to the right love

Every now and then they try and pull us under,

Steady as we rock we’ll roll on

They don’t understand so they sit and wonder how we stay so strong

Don’t care what they say, they don’t see it our way
You are the right one (We’ll carry on)
We’ll keep going, rolling (We’ll prove them wrong)
On our way to the right love

Our second to none love on the run

All that I am or will be
Everywhere you’ve been or seen

We become one, you and I
Where would I be if not by your side?

People come our way and try to stop our love but
It’s only you and me
People come our way and try to stop our love but
We’re all we’ll ever need
People come our way and try to stop our love but
As far as I can see
People come our way and try to stop our love but
We’re all we’ll ever need
We’re all we’ll ever need
Track Name: The Greatest
Who wants a run with the number one?
Get in line for the greatest great to grace this side of time
I’m taking home the gold
One at a time, the modern marvel man to stand behind
I’m taking home the gold

Though my heart it beats like crazy
(my heart is spinning but we both know)
There’s just one way to go and someone’s gotta fall
It won’t be me, no
Muhammad the greatest great
Your champion heavyweight

Who wants a run with the number one?

Fight of the night
A flashing faster than the speed of light
I’m taking home the gold
Riddle and rhyme
The bravest famous maven in my prime,
Victory is mine

Though my heart it beats like crazy
(my heart is spinning but we both know)
There’s just one way to go and someone’s gotta fall

Oh, Ali the amazing
There’s just one way to go, and someone’s gotta fall

Though my heart it beats like crazy
There’s just one way to go

Muhammad Ali, oh
The greatest great
Your champion heavyweight
Who wants a run with the number one?

It’ll be me, Muhammad the greatest great
Your champion heavyweight
Track Name: Red Eye
Let’s explore, let’s explore
So much more to discover

We’re right on time to rendezvous, international affair
Been thinking maybe we could get away

Egyptian paradise, Tokyo sunrise

Tonight’s the night that we plan our escape, let’s escape

Late night, last flight

We’ll travel into the twilight
Catch a red eye, catch the red eye

In the air through the miles, overnight on the run
Serengeti smiles, Santorini sun

Riviera to Nile, getaway for a while

Tonight’s the night that we plan our escape, let’s escape

Late night, last flight

We’ll travel into the twilight
Catch a red eye, catch the red eye

And soon enough, we’ll arrive
Fly through the Nigerian night sky
Catch a red eye, catch a red eye

Let’s leave tonight, catch the next flight
Zambia bound, then to Capetown

I really wanna go
From Spain we’ll swing straight to Beijing
What do you say to San Francisco Bay?

I really wanna go there
Descend with ease in Jamaican breeze
Singapore shores, let’s explore

I really wanna go there

Get up and go
Track Name: Supernatural (Extended Mix)
You stay on my mind, one of a kind
You stay on my mind, one of a kind
You stay on my mind, one of a kind
You’re on my mind
Oh we’ve got a supernatural love (stay on my mind)

Oh we’ve got a supernatural love (and again)
You stay on my mind, one of a kind

I should have walked away right from the very start, why did I stay?
Ten thousand tiny soldiers marching right through my heart couldn’t keep me at bay
Oh, how fast I fell, and now I’m under your spell, so tell me, do you feel it too?

There’s magic in everything you do, supernatural
I’m in love with everything ‘bout you, I wanna stay here

Tell me does it surprise you that behind closed doors it’s you I adore?
I tried to fight but I’ve never been good with war, and it struck to the core
Oh, I love you still, always have, and always will
Believe me, I’ll always tell the truth

There’s magic in everything you do, supernatural
I’m in love with everything ‘bout you, oh I wanna stay here

I often wonder why you’re running circles in my head
I really wonder why you’re running circles in my head
Oh, we’ve got a supernatural love

And if you feel the way I do,
And think that I make magic too
Then we’ll disappear into eternity
Track Name: Love Song
Not far, not far from here
You’ll say, ‘You’re safe, my dear’
Where mountains run into shores
Love song, goes on so pure

Not far, not far from here
I’ll wait for you my dear
And we’ll dance, who cares what we dance for?
Love song, just ours, mine and yours

Boulevards and avenues
Make our way to someplace new
By riverboat on the bayou
On my way to rescue you
By boulevards or avenues
We’ll make our way to someplace new
On my way to rescue you

Not far, not far from here
I’ll wait for you my dear
Track Name: In The Meantime
You say reply, run it back and forth
But I’m nothing like the girl you knew before
I told you I’d be fine on my own,
And I can’t promise to stay
But the words I meant to say were ‘I need you’
And I want to make it right,
If not for life, just for tonight

In the meantime
We’ll look out for the signs
Hold your heart close to mine
And for right now we’ll just be
Watch and see

Round and round and upside down again
Nowadays he seems a different man
He told me he was making other plans
And couldn’t promise to stay
But what he really meant to say was ‘I love you’
And he wants to make it right
If not for life, just for tonight

In the meantime
We’ll look out for the signs
Hold your heart close to mine
And for right now we’ll just be,
Watch and see

Light on the window says we should be going
One more glance and we’ll be on our way
Light on the window says we should get going
One more dance and we’ll be on our way
Light on the window says we should be going
Come down, sit now, let’s talk about our love
Track Name: Carry On
So we swing and we sway
So we stop and we go
While we’re finding our way
I just thought you should know
That I love sharing moments
When the good times are going
Let’s hold on to that feeling
Bear with me for the being

Carry on care for me
Carry on and we’ll see
Since we don’t know the way we’ll
Carry on carefully
You’ll never have to wonder
If we’re up or we’re under
Carry on and we’ll be
Just carry on care for me
Carry on care for me

Keep up with my love
Track Name: Mister Chameleon
Here’s a story of falling in love with a man of too many shades
At the blink of an eye I see his color change

It’s enough to make me go insane
Flying from one extreme to the next,
should have guessed he’d fade to indigo
Although he was peachy not too long ago

By tomorrow he’ll be white as snow

Mister Chameleon, your love is so fair weather
You go from gold to green with no warning,
And I can’t take it anymore, it’s getting so old
Something says I gotta get up

We burned bright as the burgundy sun until emerald envy caused a scene
And exposed the crimson in your tangerine

You are quite the man of mystery

Your colors flash, they don’t last, I know that they’ll be changing so very soon
I’m looking for signs, point me to the clues
What did I do to make you turn so blue, oh you’re so mean baby!

Mister Chameleon, I see your true colors

I thought I knew you well, now it’s hard to tell
and I can’t take it anymore, this is getting so old
Something says I gotta get up
Track Name: Hey (Extended Mix)
Hey, I know how it will end ‘cuz it’s already been told
Happily after only happens in fairytales, daydreams or never
But I wished hard on the stars

Now here you are,

Shining through the night, light in my dark
Even stars burn out but you held the spark
Now here you are to stay

Hey, it’s true

You were made for me, and I you

Beyond cloud nine

Higher than high past the sky where I’ll find
Not too far, in the stars

Now here you are,

Shining through the night, light in my dark
Even stars burn out but you held the spark
Here in my heart you’ll stay

Hey you are

What I wished for when I saw that shooting star

Hey now you are
All I wished on a star
Track Name: Oh, Please!
Why do the same thing, making it hard?

Running away boy, but not very far

Don’t know where you’re headed, I’ll follow, you lead
As long as we’re getting to you and me

So I’m after your love, running ‘til I have your heart
(Oh, please!)
So I’m after your love, running ‘til I have your heart
(Oh, please!)

I’ll travel high and low, honey I gotta go

I’d be a fool not to follow your love

Baby it’s in the air, and I wouldn’t dare let your love out of reach,
You got what I need

So I’m after your love, running ‘til I have your heart
(Oh, please!)
Track Name: The Story (Extended Mix)
The story’s only yours to be told
Just keep your head up and never let it go

Taking a journey to a land afar
Been thinking
Of charting my voyage to a different star
Got a story to tell,
Goodbye, Farewell

Packing my bags and I’m on the run
Train’s leaving off to the land of eternal sun
Got a story to tell
Goodbye, Farewell

Riding the rails to my destiny
To where I’m ‘sposed to be
The engine is humming underneath my feet
I’m so far from home with still a ways to go

The ride is rocky and the road is long
But I know that my soul is never gonna steer me wrong
Gonna master the art of following my heart
And I won’t worry what tomorrow will bring,
I don’t need no second thought when it’s my heart I’m following

Riding on a train, taking my trip
And I’m gonna keep on riding ‘til I reach the mothership
Riding on a train, taking my trip
And we gonna keep on riding ‘til we reach the mothership
Track Name: Native Land
Planning a pilgrimage to my native land
History in the hints held by ancient hands

Light up the lantern, search for the answers
Steady along the way arrival awaits

Tell me about it now, tell me what you know
Following followers, where did they go?

Seek out the signals, study the symbols
Steady along the way your arrival awaits

Wanderer lonely, you’re never alone, see?
Steady along the way arrival awaits
