Brazilliance - Derrik Jordan
Words and music by Derrik Jordan

Story

This song was originally recorded by Angela Bofill on her debut album "Angie" for Arista Records in 1978 and featured some great musicians playing on it like Steve Gadd and Eric Gale. Angie used it as a show closer and would get the whole audience singing along with the chorus. This was the first samba that I ever wrote (1976). I wrote it as a music student at Bennington College. Surprisingly, this is my first recorded version of the song.

Lyrics

Share Your Love

 

Isn't it strange how everything's changed

When we have been friends?

All that we cared is up in the air

When we have been friends

 

Chorus:

Oh, share your love with the world

Oh, share your love with the world

It deserves what you are

 

Maybe it's wrong to think us so strong

That we'd never end

Though what it was, is not near what it does

To see you again

 

Where is the look that once I mistook

For being in love?

It's not in your eyes, no, you can't disguise

What you're thinking of

 

Chorus

 

You say it's not a problem we've got

That's bringing you down

Say what it is so we can forgive

And feel better now

Drop that defense that's making you tense

It's just a mirage

Loosen your sheath so what's underneath

Can feel the massage
