On Okayplayer.com News!! “Somebody please pass me an ice-cold glass of wine, so I can get mellow, lay back, and let my girl play the cello. Actually, your boy Kevin “K.O.” Olusola plays the cello (and beatboxes) and Antoniette Costa handles the virtuoso vocals and powerful songwriting, while the classically trained and classically beautiful Tamara Kamangarfalls in on violin and piano. But if you want to get technical, Dizzie Gillespie plays the trumpet so whatever.”

LYRICS

verse

i thought i was brave enough to battle your ghost

the fever of a first love which poets wrote 

deeply penetrates both soul and mind 

leaving nothing but a prisoner behind 

but never did i see, you’d turn away from 

making it so hard to hold on

chorus

it’s in the way you leave me stranded 

i feel like i’ve lost control 

it’s in the way you seem so distant 

i feel like i’ve lost a friend 

it’s in the way you live for her each day 

it’s sin the way you live for her each day 

and not for me

verse

i thought i was strong enough to battle it off 

the lure of what’s lost, what still haunts 

an intuition of some suspicion, what’s locked inside 

a secret mystery, it mesmerizes me 

i know, i feel, she’s calling me

[chorus]

 hold on, hold on…and not for me

[chorus]

bittersweet i tried to reach you

memories of her voice won’t leave you 

love devoid-a ghost that’s haunting me 

Void of a Legend Lyrics-written by Antoniette Costa

sometimes i wonder what’s going through that pretty head of yours

your pretty eyes and charming smile, you look at me and i

i wanna make you wanna try to be the best yet

i wanna make you wanna try to be the best yet

 

but it’s just a day

not much to waste

another day

what’s there to waste

 

if a day is all it takes to prove yourself

why are you still waiting

if a day is all it takes to turn around

what you contemplating

 

i know it’s hard to find your place in this world- i know

i know it’s hard trying to fill the void of a legend

the void of a legend

 

sometimes i wonder what’s holding you and keeping you behind

you say you’ll try, you say we’ll see- you turn from me but i

 

i wanna make you wanna try to be the best yet

i wanna make you wanna try to be the best yet


[chorus]

 

why the hard face you don’t have to do it all alone

don’t you see i’m on your team and i won’t let you pull away

why the down look- boy you gotta toughen up

we’ll win with love ‘cause I won’t give up

 

[chorus]
