What if another universe
Complete with sun and moon
An entire galaxy and what's worse
U and eye 2 soon
Find each other xpanding beyond this dirty room
Butterscotch mountains
Sun shine

Run Ur fingers up and down the
Obelisk in the earth
Down 2 33 RPMS where
The primordial gives birth
Or else we lie neck high U and eye
In one another's ooze
Volcano magic
Summer time

Everybody knows what happens
When U worship from afar
The ebb and flow of angels
Dancing around the star
And if the sunrise is still a question
The answer's in the dark

The Morning After

It didn't hit me til the morning after
All eye remember was a kiss and then U were gone
And then eye missed Ur smile, the sound of Ur laughter
And now eye'm sleeing on the side U slept on
At first eye felt the only reason U left me
Was the proposition that eye spoke in Ur ear
Eye ain't a doctor but eye know this ain't healthy
Instead of counting sheep, eye'm counting tears

Eye coulda drove U home but U wouldn't let me
Eye didn't care how far, or if it was near
Ain't tryin 2 push U cuz eye know U just met me
Eye'm just wishin that U were here

Eye'm not the kinda man that's sad and lonely
It's just that something tells me Ur the one
Even if U love somebody else it's only
Better if eye get the chance the moment U're done

Please don't tell me that U lost my number
Just come back over if U don't wanna call
Eye've got some music that will make U rhumba
We can jam baby all nite long...

~~~ O(+> ~~~ O(+> ~~~ O(+> ~~~ O(+> ~~~ O(+> ~~~


If eye never get 2 hold Ur hand
If eye never get 2 b Ur man

That's ok cuz eye got other plans
Right now, right now
If eye never get 2 kiss Ur lips
If eye never get 2 feel Ur hips
Close 2 me

That's ok eye ain't gonna trip

Not now no how

Cuz eye've got
Eternity is just one kiss away

So they say

The opera, jill scott or the fair
Cyprus- if eye never get 2 take U swimming there
If U never know how much eye care
Eye swear

It's not fair

If eye never get 2 make U laugh
If we never get 2 take a bubble bath

Eye don't wanna part with U
Not 2night
If U gonna b a part of my past

Eye just want 4ever

Eternity is just one kiss away

So many things
We can do in the new world

Eye can b Ur future lover
U can b my future girl
If eye never get 2 C Ur smile

Underneath the white veil
Walkin' up the aisle

Eye just might go crazy

Eye might go wild

So stop lookin at me like that
Unless U want me 2 bite that

Eternity is just one kiss away

A million 2morrows
Is better than one day

Colonized Mind

Upload: the evolution principal
U c a rock on the shore and say
"It's always been there"
Down load: no responsibility
Do what U want nobody cares
Upload: the master race idea
Genetically disposed 2 rule the world
Download: a future full of isolated
Full of isolated boys and girls

Upload: a 2-party system
The lesser of 2 dangers
Illusion of choice
Download: a veiled form of fascism
Nothing' really ever changes
U never had a voice

If U look Ur sure gonna find
Thruout mankind's history
A colonized mind
The one in power makes law
Under which the colonized fall
But without god it's just the blind leading the blind

Upload: a joint venture record deal
Its just another way 4 the man 2 steal
While he's sticking U with the bill
Download: the temporary acquisition of fleeting fame and fortune
Nothing 2 leave in Ur will

Upload: a child with no father
Download: no respect 4 authority
Upload: a child with no mother
Download: a hard time showing love

If U look Ur sure gonna find
Thruout mankind's history
A colonized mind
The one in power makes laws
Under which the colonized fall
But without god
It's just the blind leading the blind

Feel Better, Feel Good, Feel Wonderful

Eye could tell by the color of Ur
NRG field
U thought this game was over
Chemical peel
U tried 2 do me like my good brother steve
But eye got another funky
Trick up my sleeve
Expecting me 2 freak on U a little bit more
But U get nothin' but well-wishes
& flowers galore
Eye mean no harm
Eye still got Ur back
U can come and drink my wine
As a matter of fact

Just feel better, feel good, feel wonderful

Eye don't know what U thought
When U spit in my face
But this dimension ain't the time
Or the place
Eye don't know who told U U could
Stand next 2 me
Cuz eye got a guitar that could
Part the sea
Don't mean no disrespect
Eye aint tryin' 2 brag
But that might b the same one that
Tapped on the crag

And brought 4th water
That quenched Ur thirst
And we'll keep feeding ya
But first things first!

Feel better, feel good, feel wonderful

If U think about how much time it took
4 U 2 try 2 get a page in my book
Eye feel so good right now
Eye just can't recall
What the eye was thinking when eye
Threw U the ball

It hit 3 bystanders after U touched it
Now they wanna sue me but they love me 2 much
Cuz they know eye wish them heaven and all of it's gold
Same 2 U, come on let's groove
2 the purple rock 'n roll

Feel better, feel good, feel wonderful

Better than good, better than good,
U know U should feel wonderful
Keep Ur mind in the vertical motion
Always looking up

Love Like Jazz

Hey baby what's Ur name?
Do U wanna play a game?
Play it like we don't know when
WE'll ever get 2 play again
Xperimental and so brand new
The things eye wanna do with U
Like a physical kind of blue
Come on baby let's get 2 it

Eye want a lover that can improvise
Eye want a lover that can make me cry

Baby eye don't care what U learned in lovemaking school
U and me we 'bout 2 jam
Make love like the first woman and man
eye don't wanna know ahead of time
The notes U play should b a
Reaction 2 mine
Nothing planned or contrived
Then both of Us will arrive
At r destination

Eye wanna feel like eye've been hypnotized
If U think U can then let's go 4 a ride

Love like jazz... love like jazz... love like jazz

Wall Of Berlin

Where am eye?
In a universe of paradoxical design
Reality or merely in the mind
In my head or in some german town
She said, U want a 4 leaf clover
In the round?"
Ain't superstitious
And eye don't believe in luck
But eye heard the thunder
?B4 the lightning struck?
Couldn't read the writing
?Cuz it was so small
But according 2 the document she got on the wall

She gets down like the wall of berlin
Eye come round about a quarter 2 ten
We just met or at least we pretend
It's so fresh knockin' down
The wall of Berlin

Where am eye?
A galaxy of monumental delight
Or parallel hologram copyright
The call comes unxpected
Like a mugger in a park
And the sound of the train interrupts the ?

Is that the queen of Sheba
Or an alien dream?
The marks on the table say
Somewhere in between
Not one 4 rituals
But one thing eye have found
Everything's better when U come around

She gets down like the wall of berlin
Eye come round about a quarter 2 ten
We just met or at least we pretend
It's so fresh knockin' down
The wall of Berlin

Here she come, the most popular girl
In the whole wide world 2day
U don't know if she would but what's good if she'd come & look Ur way
U're standing over there tryin' 2 B gangsta coppin' Ur favorite lean
U give her the head nod
O my god U're the craziest thing
She's ever seen but Ur

And she's loving U all night long
In Ur little world she's Ur best girl
It's all money
Ain't nothing wrong
Ur dancing and she's lovin U all night long
Funky dolla bill it's real U'all
easy come, easy gone

Where U go everybody wanna know
So they can put it in a magazine
Next 2 the ad 4 the latest fad
In black hair care -- vaseline?
With this car, these rims this grill U'll B
The illest on the scene
Whatever whatever all U need is Ur music
And U'll B a party machine and U'll B


How many times U look 4 happy
And U never C the rich folx there?
But if the dj really dropped a needle all the tru players just don't care
When all the news just gimme the blues and make U wanna pop a pill
What difference does it make who gots the most bank, it's just ink and chlorophyll


Pawns aside who's the king the 2 and 4
Wit hot sauce from the bay 2 baltimore
Take Ur woman 4 she hit the front door
And whoop Ur whole crew cuz they fat and slow

Dancing loving U all night long
It's all money ain't nothing wrong
Dancing loving U all night long
Easy come easy gone

Eye was born & raised on the same plantation
In the united states of the red, white and blue
Eye never knew that eye was different
Til Dr. King was on the balcony
Lying in a bloody pool
Xpected so much more from a loving society

A truthful xplanation but U know what?
Eye got another conspiracy

If it was just a dream... Call me
Call me a dreamer 2
With more rewards & accolades
Than anyone b4 or after
21st century, oh what a shame
That race still matters
A race 2 what and where we going?
We r in the same boat
But eye'm the only one rowin'
Last time eye checked U were sleepin'
.. But U can call me a dreamer 2
Peanut butter logic served on a bed of lies
Don't go down 2 easy
When U seen Ur father cryin'
Have U ever clutched the steering wheel
Of Ur car 2 tight?

Prayin that the police sirens
Pass U by at night?
While the helicopter circles
& The theory's getting' deep
Think they're spraying chemicals over the city
While we sleep?

From now on eye'm staying awake..
So U can call me a dreamer 2
Wake up wake up

(There'll Never B) Another Like Me

It really don't matter who U get with
Cuz it just ain't meant 2 B

It really don't matter
Cuz U never shoulda woulda,
Ever coulda been like me

Eye can get U what U want anything
At all girl all U gotta say is please
Ask Ur mother Ur sister Ur brotha
There'll never B another
Never B another like me

Late afternoon slipped outta my bed
Turned up the stereo
About 2 raise the dead

Slipped in the bathroom
Put some olive oil in my hair
Walked in the closet
Tryin' 2 find something 2 wear

Then eye checked my emale
?2 C where the party b
Change the names 2 protect the guilty
And get ready 2 creep
Should eye bring somebody
Or dance alone?
It don't matter 2 me U'all
Cuz 2nite is on


Bout a half past ten and eye'm on my way
Heard U had a fine little puerto rican dj
If she aint got prince's new song
There is gonna B a scene
Cuz eye can't stand nobody cussin'
At me when eye'm clean

Arms all around me
Soon as eye hit the door
Good thing eye ate my spinach
U're thicker than b4
Oh what's this boy doing,
Y he makin that face,
Don't he know eye have crazy friends with me
Ready 2 tear up this place?


Can't U c this is inevitable
What's the use in wastin' time?
U and me we could B com4table
All that it takes is 4 U 2 make up Ur mind
So now what's the matter?
U and me, we're both dimes
Said we were
All them other pennies should scatter
We ought not waste this time
That's y...

Suga nuthin' here comes 4 free

Girl that wanna come my way

Or r U ridin' in a limousine?

Dance 4 Me


Eye like it when U dance cuz it gets me hot
Eye like it when U shake everything u got
Eye like it when U dance cuz it's so sexy
Eye like it when U dance 4 me

Eye like it when U think eye'm all alone
Ur the voice eye hear from the telephone
Tellin me all Ur deepest fantasies
Eyelike it when U dance 4 me ..hallelujah

Eye like it when eye hear a knock
On my door
U r standing there in Ur christian dior
Dark sunglasses in the pale moonlight
Eye like it when the scene is right
U can take ur wrap and lay it on the chair
If anybody finds it eye don't care
What we do 2gether makes history
Eye like it when U dance 4 me

Ur flamenco eyes r all like jazz
With every other sip of what's in Ur glass
The sexier U get
The more Ur in2 my stash
Eye like it when U dance 4 me

U don't need directions
And U don't need cash
From Ur jimmy choos 2 Ur ultralash
Least that eye can do baby is get half
It's worth it when U dance 4 me

(dance.. dance 4 me.. dance... dance 4 me)

chorus x2

Dance... dance.. eye like it when U dance 4 me

U're Gonna C Me

Eye know.. eye'm not gonna sleep 2nite
Cuz U're not by my side and that ain't right
Eye thought that we bought this bed 4 2 what
Good is it if eye'm not with U


Give me a page on my 2-way
Eye'll hit U back with no delay
When U hear all eye've got 2 say
U're gonna c me
Whether in person or the phone
Eye' got 2 get U all alone
And when eye do baby it's on
U're gonna c me
U're gonna c me

There's never a minute that eye find
That U don't ever cross my mind
If U could just hold me tight U'd c
There is nothing harder 4 U than me


U're the reason eye took a rope
& lassoed the moon
?2 prove that when it comes 2 U
There's nothing that eye won't do
Eye would stare in2 the sun
If U would b mine
It's no so great a leap
Since 2 all others eye am blind

Eye know eye'm not gonna sleep 2nite
Cuz U're not by my side and that ain't right


U're gonna c me

~~~ O(+> ~~~ O(+> ~~~ O(+> ~~~ O(+> ~~~ O(+> ~~~


How beautiful r U? There's more than
A thousand replies
Could it b Ur lips or Ur golden eyes?
When eye think of an answer
That's when eye get so surprised
Another wonder of the world realized
That's y

Eye just dont want U here
Eye just don't want U near me baby

Cuz eye'm scared eye'll cry
And love U like crazy
Flying above all fears
Eye haven't seen any tears, not lately
Eye dont wanna land not even maybe

How desperate am eye?
Eye wonder if Ur what keeps me alive
Alone eye can't get as high
Even tho eye've tried

It's different when U're grown
The wine don't taste the same
When U're alone
The size of the bed now seems like
The biggest that eye've ever known


There's so much more 4 U and me 2 xplore
Ooh baby baby
When U walk thru that door
Eye am gonna give U what U're waiting 4

Baby lemme break this down

Eye am gonna say this once
Then eye am gonna leave this town
If U can learn 2 open ur eyes under water
Then U and me wont drown
Without eachother
Eye promise eye'll c U on the other side
Just believe in me and trust this ride
Eye am so sincere right now
Eye just .... .

Eye just want U here
Eye just want U near me baby
Eye'm scared eye'll cry
And love U like crazy
Eye'm flying above all fears
Eye haven't seen any tears not lately, no
Eye don't wanna land, not even maybe
Donny hathaway's song 4 U ain't the same
Without U

Hey Valentina tell Ur mama
She should give me a call
When she get tired of runnin'
After U down the hall
B4 U came on2 the scene it was a hollywood mess
Ur mama was a movie queen
She was one of the best

Every boy had the hots 4 her,
Around the world even girls adored her
Mexican bombshell
Come 2 conquer the west

Hey Valentina tell Ur mama
She should give me a call
When she get tired of runnin
After U down the hall
And she's all worn out
From those late night feedings
And she ready 4 another
Rock 'n roll meeting
Oh Valentina tell Ur mama
She should give me a call

Ur uncle Sami used 2 hold it down
Every day

Watch the bootyguards
Scarecrow the buzzards away
Like an aeroplane the time flies over
So many guys they couldn't get
Ur sweet little mama 2 stay

Curvier than
A fender stratocaster guitar...
Reality bender: from no greencard
2 Superstar

Broken up slang even when
The king of hollywood ain't that tall
Sho as betty's ugly
Ur mama's bigger than 'em all.
Hey Valentina

Tell Ur mama she should call up mia
In advance

If Penelope wants 2 Cruz
There ain't no way that we ain't gon dance
Tell Ur mama she should give me a call..
That's all

Better With Time

This might seem strange
Since so much time has passed
And since only one of Us
Still looks the same
Ur words not mine, baby
Ur still fine yes U r
Like wine, U get better with time
So young and so naive
That eye never 4 once believed
That the memory of U would go thru
Like wind goes thru the trees

Maybe if U believe baby
That eye would not deceive U
U and eye side by side or somewhere
In between

Eye dont know if this is a bore
But eye just can no longer ignore
This fact so sublime
U get better with time

Anyone who's met U agrees
That no one 4gets U most of all not me
U can claim U're humble and hide
But when it's true my dear
It's not pride

A jury of my peers would find me
Guilty of so many crimes
If eye chose not 2 remind U
That U get better with time

This might seem absurd
?2 someone so cultured
And 2 one who would grace any stage

When the hair that frames that face
Dark brown or silvery lace
What is age but a cage? never mind
U'll b blind 2 not know that U get better with time

Ol' Skool Company


Every once in awhile
U need some ol' skool company
Somebody that appreciates a sexy groove
And a old school melody
When god his son and the love of family
Ruled in the community
The songs U sing
Lift U up 2 heaven
A heaven we can believe in

Everybody's talkin' about hard times
Like it just started yesterday
People eye know they've been strugglin'
At least it seems that way
Fat cats on Walt Street
They got a bailout
While somebody else got 2 wait
700 billion but my old neighborhood
Aint nothing changed but the date


Ain't nothing ever came from complaining
Xcept a bitter heart, that's true
Follow along and U gon wanna do
Something b4 the next chorus is thru
The songs we sing
They used 2 mean somethin
Now every other one is just mean
Rather than reminisce eye'm telling U this
It's time 4 a brand new scene


Everybody's sinkin in the quicksand
Created by the keepers of time
Cast aside by using ancient tricks
That changes Ur state of mind
They got U catering the whims of the flesh
B4 U get Ur paper right
Call me old fashioned
But back in the day
There wasn't no shorties in sight

1st come job then come marriage b4 shorty
Come out with the baby carriage call me
Old fashioned just clap yo hands just clap yo hands
Radio used 2 b local untouched by by the man
Songs we used 2 sing used 2 mean something
Now they just bland like the drummer
Where's the real drummer? Michael B.
Mint condition, Morris Day
Jellybean wishin' Sheila E and Brother John, sometimes me
'Til Dawn

If the white house is black
We gotta take the radio back
Power 2 the people
Power 2 the people

Put this thing on repeat go back 2 one
And just move ur feet tell ur friends prince and
The mplsound we can't b beat

No More Candy 4 U

9 out of 10 mortals agree 2day: 2 much fame causes spiritual decay

2 all the punx who believe life imitates music
No more candy 4 U we can't hang with U
2 all the punx who wanna b rock stars and do what they do
There's no future 4 U that's the life of a fool
No more candy, no more candy 4 U we're 2 funky and U can't handle r groove

2 all the freax in the magazines who never paid no dues
No more candy 4 U U can't sing it's true
2 all the freax walking in2 walls somebody put a spell on U
No more candy 4 U eye guess the devil got a brand new fool


2 all the haterz on the internet somebody's looking at U
No more candy 4 U they got Ur number now, fool
2 all the suckerz winning anything and thanking the lord 4 what they do
No more candy 4 U no more candy 4 U

Eye am 2 funky and U can't handle my groove.

Here Eye Come

4 what's 2 come
It's been a long time
Since eye've been with anyone
Careful a womans got 2 b
In this day and age
That's why eye was so elated
When eye got Ur page
Just thinkin 'bout
What we used 2 do
Makes me wanna
Take a shower
And just lose myself in a fantasy
Ur hands all over me
But 4 now mine will have 2 do

Here eye come

Motivation, thats what U r 2 me
Eye can just think about U babe
And get weak in the knees
No seriously eye'm sitting down right now
On the floor of the shower
Dont ever stop what U're doin'

Eye feel like that dirty blonde girl
In 9 1/2 weeks
A minute goes just like an hour
And the water pours all over me
In the shower


Dear diary the one in my mind
Electric rush inside is going crazy
Eye gotta find a way 2 make it stop
If eye dont eye'm gonna pop
Like a cork on a bottle of chardonnay
In the air then eye drop
Down 2 my knees

Here eye come

All This Love

Time travel movin' faster than sound
Secrets lost but now they're found
Spiritual healer lay ur body down
My lips r soft my hips r round

What r U gonna do? what r U gonna do?
What r U gonna do with all this love?
What r U gonna do? what r U gonna do?
What r U gonna do with all this

Space travel
We're not movin' at all
Eye look in Ur eyes and start 2 fall
Clothes unravel
Bolivian paper doll
If U don't bounce
We can have a ball


Touch U incessantly
Pitch a tent in Ur hair
Give U the best of what eye've got
Honey please 4give me 4 what eye'm guilty of
What am eye gonna do with all this love?

Chakra transfer inside lookin' out
Eye'm gonna take it easy
No need 2 pout
Eye'm around U like a hand in glove
Don't worry
U're deep enough

Will U want me honey like eye want U
Will U let me do what eye want 2
R U gonna get soft
When eye want 2 play rough?
What r U gonna do with all this love

Eye came down 2 find U here
Celibate and all alone
Traveling in a caravan of isis tears
Eyeve come 2 claim U 4 my own
Of course U're scared the 1st time eye appear
Cuz many seek Ur throne
But theres no need 2 worry
No need 2 fear
U should just feel at home



Eye came down
U were Up in arms
A house full of thieves and liars
A restless heart so easily charmed
Could end Up in a bed of fire
Of course Ure scared the first time eye say
Let me help U tap on that dome
Theres no need to run
From Ur one and only desire
Eyeve come 2 bring peace 2 Ur home

Eye came down 2 hear U say
At last U're finally satisfied
There was never any other
Who could ever b Ur lover
And never truly get inside ya
Ouch the core of what we all live 4 everlasting paradise
In Ur life there r many houses
But now U finally got a home

Eye only wanna cleanse Ur feet
With isis tears
And make U feel at home

Welcome home

Something U Already Know

Woke up this morning with a smile on my face
And the sweet aftertaste of loving U
Without a warning
Eye felt the whole earth shake
Thinking 'bout the love we make
Boy it's true
Eye had some trouble walking
And only heaven knows
That finding all my clothes would b a miracle
Everything eye do is better
Cuz the seratonin flow is such
That the simplest things with U r never dull


Eye am only telling u what u already know

If U could c me now
Hangin' with my friends
The fun it never ends
It's cuz of U
Yes well b sho nuff kickin it later on 2night
In Ur favorite dress alright
And well be
Doin what we do
Back and 4th on a rocking horse
A fantasy is better in real life of course
Unless of course
The name of that stallion is me
2 the east and the west coast
Around the world baby
And then some more
With U thats when real life is
Better than fantasy


Eye love it when U tell me stories
Straight from the dome
About how Ur favorite song is home

Eye love it when U kiss me
Yeah U know right there
And when eye tell U 2 lower Ur pitch
U get so deep its hard 2 bear
Eye love it when U pull my hair
Gently baby eye dont care
Go ahead and pull it
Dont b scared

Eye love it
When Ur face is like a treasure buried
In the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow

Taste the rainbow


~~~ O(+> ~~~ O(+> ~~~ O(+> ~~~ O(+> ~~~ O(+> ~~~


Lights in the shadow of a darkened room
His face
Lit under the glow of the moon
Fingers winding circles in my hair
Holding me in his penetrating stare
Eye aint going nowhere
Just one touch and eye'm running hot
Eye'm 'bout 2 die but eye dont wanna stop
Eye breathe in ur sweet love satisfied
Then we kiss and it's so divine
Every time


He takes my breath cuz he takes his time
He takes my soul, body and mind
He takes what he wants and that's just fine
He takes my breath
Every time
He glides his fingers 'cross my lips
Like drawing a map in2 his kiss
So fine
Every time

Happy people in the disco light
Dancin' sexy cuz the musics right
Put Ur arms around me and hold me tight
Theres no 2morrow
Theres just 2nite

Worked so hard all through the week
Eye just wanna get off my feet
Hit me back at a quarter 2 nine
We can jam and have a real good time
U wanna jam with me?


No guns or drugs up in the place
Old school jams put a smile on Ur face 2nite

No top forty, no none of that junk
Eye know this dope spot that just plays funk
U know this jam is sure 2 move the crowd
Everybodys dancing
No posing allowed

Note 2 self: must avoid
Brokeback busters unemployed
Brothers who call me shortie
In the pickup line
And all those who only got
One thing on their mind


Belinda, Bianca, me and U
We can party like grown folks do
Come correct and eyell give U a chance
Dont ask me 4 my number
Just ask me 2 dance

Shake Ur flip side and feel the beat
Wake up the next day in the palazzo suites
Lay out 'til noon in the desert sun
Dont get mad 'cuz we havin fun

If we gonna party lets party right
No yesterday just remember 2nite

Another Boy

Every time another boy speaks
If they catchin' feelings
And they wanna get with me
Eye dont hear no evil or c it
Dont matter anyway
Cuz theyll never b with me
Eye got what eye want and hes home
Waiting on me 2 call him on the phone
2 ask him what he wants from the store
Eye give him what he needs
And baby so much more

Ain't another man that can make me love him
Cause eye only place god
And the sky above him
Hes the one that brings me joy
As long as were 2gether
There will never b another boy

Everywhere we go people stare
They could b jealous but eye just dont care
Perception ain't really the truth
They could never ever take me away from U
Every time another boy pass
Eye think about how sad eye was in the past
Hoping with a knife in my back
That everything was cool
But he was making plans

Just another failed romance
Cuz a one-trick pony ain't got no chance
Eye dont need any other toy
Cuz baby Ure my lover
There will never b another boy

Sister and my mother, father and my brother
This is what the difference will b
The only one that lasts thru all of history

Every time another boy speaks
Kind words of praise or fantasy
2 me they're just another boy
And not the coolest boy who brings me joy

Cause eye got him
Yes it's U baby
Like water 4 chocolate
Eyell do anything
2 make U c
That Ure the only one 4 me
Eye like the smell of Ur sweet cologne
The eye dont care style of Ur hair
Just ask and eyell cook the things U like
When them other girls' cupboards just bare,
U see this? U got it
Eye said it's U
Like water 4 chocolate
4ever baby
Therell never b another boy

Kept Woman

Eye was only 17 when he saw me
The apple of my daddy's eye
Cute but not jaded
My hair in 2 braids
He looked at me and just said, "high"
Was it his cologne or the style of his hair
They told me eye should stay away
And not go there
Sometimes eye'm all alone and don't c him
Eye wish it was different but eye don't care


Eye'm a kept woman, he don't c nobody but me
We got a pretty little house
Only me and him got the key
Kept woman
Sometimes eye don't know y
Kept woman
Sometimes eye cry

He likes it when eye dance 4 no reason
He likes it when eye, dance
But he doesn't like it when
Eye raise my voice 2 him
Eye try 2 stop but eye can't
Was it his cologne or the style of his hair
Eye don't know how but he took me there
And now eye hug my pillow
More nights than not
It's crazy but the butterflies just don't stop


He's the hotness in my fire
Eye give him anything he desires
It may sound crazy but it suits me fine
Cuz ain't nobody ever take away what's mine

Cuz eye'm a kept woman
He's every single thing eye need
Kept woman
And everything in between
Eye'm a kept woman
He loves me like no other
Kept woman
And eye'm his queen

Very adept in the art of healing
A voice spoke un2 her saying come in
She's lost 4 words describing the feeling
Whatever it is, it will never end

Very adept in the art of listening
She studied everything she needed 2 know
Her dreams now turned 2 the water glistening
And the words come in and go

2 a place where time it has no meaning
And a space where there r no more walls
Very adept in the art of receiving
She finally got the call

Come in

Very adept in the art of releasing
She let all of her inhibitions go
With the unexpected shock of a bee sting
She got pulled in2 the future
And in2 the new world

Welcome 2 the place much faster than time
The true reality where only peace U'll find

Come in

Eye can c Ur face every time
Anywhere, any place in my mind
If my guard is ever low
Theres a place that eye can go


U can fight in vain
Eye'm gonna have my way
All night and all day
Seven tears fall like rain
In between the joy and pain


Hand in hand woman and man
Through the tallest doors
Up the stairs
Two animals spawning in a river
They go there

Up and down
Round and round

Write this down:
With his pen, ink and tongue
Amid the sound of machinations
Is this real or all in fun
City noise
He writes it there


Naked girl, naked boy
Single word that she heard
They lay xposed
Can U hear it
Fully clothed


It's early in the day
4 their relationship?
In truth he hardly knows her xcept 4 her lips

She moans sighs and groans

Almost there baby
