about

Recorded as part of a Lina/Hidden Beach Records contest, the song "More" Anthony states, "lands as one of my favorite songs I've ever recorded." It's unknown if the contest ever unfolded a winner however, Anthony Antoine remains a fan of Lina's work and has always hoped that Lina would one day hear it. After many years of listening to the song himself, Anthony & Lina finally meet & connected on Jadar Entertainment's Island Escape weekend in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.

FAM, share the love & tell Lina what you think about this fire duet. Easily, it can be released today. And who knows, maybe it will.

lyrics

Opening Rap

In my rush, she said slow down and take your time dawg
You won’t even get to first base in your haste to get it
And in, that poetic moment – a new beginning
An end of connecting empty
Endless possibilities soar as I learn that there’s more
I had to stop and think about it
She said, stop and think about it and so I did
And now I know that there’s more

First verse

I don’t know why the whole world has no ceiling
Can’t tell you why, an ending is just the beginning
But I know there’s more to a rose than the pedals, there’s also the thorns
There’s more to your smile, it even comes with a charm

Chorus
There’s more to these words than just literal meaning
There’s more to myself if my heart should stop beating
There’s more to the rain as it falls and the skies become clear
There’s more, there’s got to be more

Verse 2

Like your kiss, your kisses leave me wanting more
And like one door closes to an open door, there’s more
And I know there’s more to this love than just love, so cliché
There’s more to this song, than the words that you hear me say

Chorus
There’s more to these words than just literal meaning
There’s more to myself if my heart should stop beating
There’s more to the rain as it falls and the sky becomes clear
There’s more, I know there’s more

Middle Rap

Empty heart and hands open
Are they asking or are they hoping to hold you
To be filled with more than the trivial nights
Of percussion and drums on the box
Twenty minutes of unconscious passion
To get me off and gone
Leaving a rose with wilting pedals and sharpened thorns
But doesn’t every devil have horns
To blow a sweeter melody
Maybe settle into monogamy and more

Unconscious actions that doubt that there’s more
But when I conscious and connected to the source
I know there’s more
Confused if you’re that more
Are you?
Tell me

Chorus Out
