NEW: Carpe Diem – Paapa ft Jayso & Tamano [Download + Lyrics]

Paapa Kweku Mensa, signed onto JaySo’s Skillion Records, released this soul inspiring tune earlier this year.

Paapa, as he is simply called is hailed for such music which inspires the soul and revives the spirit.

JaySo, who is on the chorus does not disappoint and deliver straight inspiration from the heart. Tamano, who I was hearing for the first time, also delivered exceptionally.

So is Paapa a gospel musician? I don’t believe so, his songs go beyond the genre known as gospel music in Ghana. Paapa is simply put, an inspirational artiste.

Verse (Paapa)

Life is too short, I might give it some high heels
I know that’s impossible but that’s the way that I feel
If life is a tape, then better keep it reel/real
Better watch your step, this is my appeal
To everybody on the planet, on the globe
live like onions
So that when devil tries to slice through you, you will make the devil cry

Chorus (Jayso)

There are a million ways to lose my life but not a single one to get it back
So when I’m running I will never lose sight, of the Heaven at the end of the track
Whether life is good, or bad, it’s just one life we have
So carpe diem, carpe diem

Verse (Paapa)

Mother of four, killed in a civil war,
By a rebel who never even met her before
She didn’t make the news, but she makes a metaphor
For death standing behind everybody’s door.
But now she’s gone forever
Nobody can fill her shoes, African Cinderella
Now that I’m sitting here, I cannot help but wonder
I know she came and saw but could she even conquer?
It makes me realise that I really have only one chance
One dance
With life gotta make it my wife give it some romance,
That means I gotta love it, make the best of it
So in every second that I’m living
I’ll be giving
What I’m given
By my Jesus to make more people believers
So I gotta seize every day, Carpe Diem
and shine Ghanaian sun at 2pm

Chorus (Jayso)

There are a million ways to lose my life, but not a single one to get it back
So when I’m running I will never lose sight, of the Heaven at the end of the track
Whether life is good, or bad, it’s just one life we have
So carpe diem, carpe diem

Verse (Tamuno)

I spit it fast my mouth’s a Lamborghini,
I shake it up and stir it up like this is a vodka martini
I live life reserving my bullet for better use
Cos I know that I better use my one shot at life to make it in history
I don’t understand how I used to be so wreckless
Used to live life on a thin line, something like a slim neckless
Then it hit me with no pain a little like music does
When I saw how my friends were passing – and its not football I’m speaking of
My man P already said life’s too short she needs high heels
And she be shocking like lightning from a high eel
We all wish she could stay longer, maybe for a little while,
But it would be stupid to throw her around because she’s so damn fragile
I make sure I make use of this single life
What I’m saying is very deep – you should call me Barry White
We who ain’t at war playing with our lives and their tracks
We’d appreciate life more if we were soldiers in Iraq

Chorus (Jayso)

There are a million ways to lose my life, but not a single one to get it back so when I’m running I will never lose sight, of the Heaven at the end of the track
Whether life is good, or bad, it’s just one life we have
So carpe diem, carpe diem
