lyrics

My body is tropical

my genes were born from palm trees
and my hands are strong enough to hold a sunset
And my feet were built to be dipped in white sand

and my eyes were picked from fresh greens
My body is warm
as warm as the asphalt of my home town

my temperature is measured in Celsius
and it has never seen a negative sign
My lungs could store the spirit of a thousand trees
swaying with the sound of samba
and my arms strong like bamboo
always bending, but never breaking

My body body body is tropical, therefore not built
for the snowy weather of the place I call home
My cells, they shiver with the coming cold
they are not ready to leave the warmth

My body is made up of microscopic
teeny-tiny seeds of tropical fruits
my essence tastes like papaya when it's ripe
and I speak with the sweetness of fresh juice
My body is tropical

it's not cold like the dead of winter
it's warm like a cup of espresso
I'm warm like the sun in their eyes
I am made up of moonlights
quietly watching over the beaches I once stepped on.

My body is tropical

All I do is hope I can touch people in a positive way and somehow let them know it's ok to follow their bliss. ... more
