about

Gayana's second studio album "Kingdom".

Following-on from Gayana’s 2013 debut “Reborn”, “Kingdom” references the ‘golden era’ of music made popular by artists such as Michael Jackson, Chaka Khan and Phil Collins.
At the same time, “Kingdom” is not simply a retro, nostalgia trip — the album sits perfecty in the contemporary landscape of 2016. It is edgy, dynamic and fresh.

Produced, recorded and mixed by Vladimir Boytsov at Flat 3 Studio
Vocals, lyrics and co-production by Gayana Boytsova
Electric guitars by Ilya Kamaldinov

“The Judge” - co-produced by Ilya Kamaldinov
“Claustrophobia” - original composition “Lightyears” by Laszlo Bencker, reworked by Mr.Pteez

Mastered by Wim Bult at Inlinemastering
Photography and design by Gleb Lazarev

Special thanks to Pavel Kovan, Evgeny Lebedev, Sasha Astakhov, Yulia Zhukova, Polina Zizak, Gala Dobrodeeva, Semen Velichko, Artyom Atanesyan, David Broersma and everyone who contributed to the success of this album.

Track Name: Intro
Gayana - Intro

Hey, let me introduce myself, my name is G,
And I'm still young and full of energy,
I believe in God and have no enemies
And if you're going to protest,
don't tell me this!

I never do anything just for gain, I have
Everything I need and I can't complain,
And if I could live my life over again
I swear that I even wouldn't even change a thing.

Cuz I'm happy and I feel so blessed,
So ask me what is real success,
Just be yourself and do your best
Believing in things that you profess

Forget about high self-confidence
My rule sounds like "work more, show off less"!
Sometimes our life feels like a mess
Be ahead of the game, don't miss the chance!
Track Name: Work
Gayana - Work

Verse 1:
You work, work, work, you work,
There's no time to stop
And think about what you have come for.
You're living your days
Like you're already dead,
The slave of yourself,
And your days are numbered.
So what you're searching for?
A city of gold?
Or you're dreaming of ruling the world?
In a race for an illusion
You're losing your friends.
And that's the way you're selling your soul.

Chorus:
Hear the lion roar
You were made with something deep within
So what were you made for?
What's the reason you're alive?
There is the white door,
Hiding the truth and consummate healing,
Worth living and dying for
Whether it's wrong or right.

Verse 2:
You still want more and more.
It's hard to withstand
And it’s so easy to follow.
Slowly falling into the black hole,
But that's not enough,
Until you hit bottom.
Who breaks every chain?
Do you know His name?
Has the world enslaved your mind?
The sun is rising and the night is on the wane.
Being on the other side is a losing game.
Track Name: Claustrophobia
Gayana - Claustrophobia

Verse1:
There's no reason for coming tonight, don’t you feel our love goes wrong.
Your obsession is making you blind, you can’t even notice that i'm cold.
You try to hold on but lose control and your mind is not your own,
So let me go…
Don’t you know my heart will never be tamed.

Chorus:
I can not stay… no
‘cause I feel like a bird in a cage
Need to be loved but not so tight
I can’t stand the way
You make me feel claustrophobic,
And then i suffocate

Verse2:
And your shadow is making me feel like a prisoner in my own life.
But the night’s gonna set me free, it all disappears in the moonlight.
You try to hold on but lose control and your mind is not your own,
So let me go…
Don’t you know my heart will never be tamed.

Chorus:
I can not stay… no
‘cause I feel like a bird in a cage
Need to be loved but not so tight
I can’t stand the way
You make me feel claustrophobic,
And then i suffocate

Bridge:
Feeling claustrophobic, going insane
Track Name: Land Of Lies
Gayana - Land Of Lies

Then many false prophets will appear and decieve many people. Such will be the spread of evil that many people's love will grow cold. But whoever holds out to the end will be saved. [Matthew 24:11-13]

Verse1:
Did you send me into the world to share
And preach the Word of holy life?
The question follows me every night and day,
And finally I see the sign

Prechorus:
We can learn to love again,
And He’s waiting for you to call on Him and pray.
Keep your life free from vanity
Set your minds on things that are above and say:

Chorus:
I wanna leave it all!
Good bye the land of lies,
I choose another way,
(I'm gonna leave it all)
The land is in eternal night,
I cannot take the pain.
I'm gonna leave it all!

Verse2:
Cruelty and faintheartedness
Took the throne of the human world,
Oh, Father, You gave me forgiveness,
But I don't deserve to be yours

Prechorus:

Chorus:
I wanna leave it all!
Good bye the land of lies,
I choose another way,
I'm gonna leave it all!
The land is in eternal night,
I cannot take the pain

I'm gonna leave it all!
Good bye the land of lies,
I choose another way,
I'm gonna leave it all,
The way to eternal night,
There will be no mourning, crying and pain.
Track Name: Pilgrim
Gayana - Pilgrim

Verse 1
So it was a usual day of my life,
I’m not sure but seems I was walking.
Suddenly I heard inside many voices,
And they were talking.
I could hear them whisper through the night
How to keep my heart wide open,
They said to me to forsake the world,
Not to wait for the perfect moment.

Chorus:
I left it all, who could ever know?
I was strong enough to leave my home.
The unseen hand was carrying my load,
it feels like I have never been alone.

Verse 2
When morning came I opened my eyes,
I was standing at the edge of the abyss.
And I saw on the other side
Magic garden surrounding the palace.
Being upset I fell down on my knees,
And I felt like a helpless stranger.
I appealed to the King of kings,
And He came with a thousand angels.
Track Name: Kingdom
Gayana - Kingdom

Verse1:
Sitting by the fire, feeling a little tired,
Waiting for the time it's going to storm.
The ocean in the night seems to invite me
To go back to the place I've come from…

I have been so many places,
Trying to find the one called home.
When my soul separates from my body,
Will I come into Your Kingdom?

Chorus:
Friend…He's a friend of mine until the end,
He's the only life and the way,
And I can feel His love more each day.

Verse2:
Warmed by the fire, bold as a lion,
God is my shield if I'm upright in heart.
Living by the Word divinely inspired,
Keep it in mind: you are the salt and light.

Pray to Jesus as your Saviour;
Nobody knows when that time comes.
Narrow is the way that leads us to heaven,
Help me to be led by Your wisdom.

Bridge:
When the clouds are gathering round you,
Hear the whisper: "you're not alone".
When the sun goes down, don't lower your head,
Raise it up and look up with hope.
'Cause there's a reason for everything,
And warm days will come after cold.
It comes and goes,
God only knows,
We can only suppose,
As time goes by...
Track Name: The Judge
Gayana - The Judge

Verse 1
For all of the things that we'll never know,
All of the tears that we never show,
Who's to blame?
For all of the children who'll never grow
He's coming to judge the people of the earth,
They won't be the same

Chorus 1
And the faithful will get the crown,
And then all sin will be drowned.

Verse 2
He promised to heal you of your wounds,
But lying and hatred are what you choose.
Who's to blame?
Letting the demons come and rule
Over your life, drowning in the gloom,
But there comes a day

Chorus 2
When the faithful will get the crown,
And then all sin will be drowned.

Outro:
They will never be the same.
Track Name: Terminator
Gayana - Terminator

Verse1:
Across the sea,
Seems to never end, never dry,
I follow my dream.
There's no such a word as "can't"!

Chorus:
Wanna stand in the beginning,
Don't wanna be even second.
Father God protects me and I'm willing.
Tell me what is that feeling?
What’s the day I can taste it?
Day the world will hear my voice is coming

Verse2:
Across the sea,
Like Moses gone through the wilds,
I follow my dream.
I will take the prize or I’d rather die.

Chorus:
Wanna stand in the beginning,
Don't wanna be even second.
Father God protects me and I'm willing.
Tell me what is that feeling?
What’s the day I can taste it?
Day the world will hear my voice is coming
Track Name: Matilda
Gayana - Matilda

Verse1:
She is alone in this wide world,
A little girl who just can do no wrong.
Nobody knows she has a magic strength,
Bur her life is not like a fairytale.

Chorus:
Matilda! She’s like from space!
Matilda! Such a pretty face!
Matilda! There’s no one to hold her hand
and no one who just really cares…

Verse2:
She reads all night deep in a fantasy
About the bravery and honesty.
She doesn’t know how much she taught me:
To feel the power and to set it free

Chorus:
Matilda! She’s like from space!
Matilda! Such a pretty face!
Matilda! There’s no one to hold her hand
and no one who just really cares…

Bridge:
No one to hold her little hand
And no one who just really cares
Track Name: Touch My Music
Gayana - Touch my music

Verse 1:
Catch the sound that we found
You can feel it by your skin
It’s not a fraud, check it out
Touch my music and you’ll see
It’s like a pulse that beats inside of me

Chorus:
I am gonna sing it
Sow into your soul as a millet
Through the fall and misunderstanding
I know this music will be always in my soul

Verse 2:
Hey, my guys, our desires are already coming true
I can climb thousand miles when I’m on the stage with you
And that’s the only thing I wanna do

Chorus:
I am gonna sing it
Sow into your soul as a millet
Through the fall and misunderstanding
I know this music will be always in my soul
