Girl take my hand
Let me take you on a journey let me be your man
I wanna show you some things you’ve never seen before
I know that you’re a boss but I promise girl there’s so much more
All you gotta do is come with me girl
I don’t wanna play around anymore
I know there’s no one else for me and that’s for sure
So baby won’t you try me
Please just don’t deny me
I’m putting the ball in your court
We can do what you want
Girl if you’re ready
We ain’t gotta waste no time we can just go steady
We can do whatever you want
Girl if you’re ready
We ain’t gotta waste no time we can just go steady
We can do whatever you want
Ok I admit it
Took me a minute to get it
But now I got it
And I don’t wanna be without it
So please let go
I promise I won’t ever let you hurt no more
All you gotta do is come with me
I don’t wanna play around anymore
I know there’s no one else for me and that’s for sure
So baby won’t you try me
Please just don’t deny me
I’m putting the ball in your court
We can do what you want
Girl if you’re ready
We ain’t gotta waste no time we can just go steady
We can do whatever you want
Girl if you’re ready
We ain’t gotta waste no time we can just go steady
We can do whatever you want
if you’re ready
We ain’t gotta waste no time we can just go steady
We can do whatever you want
Girl if you’re ready
We ain’t gotta waste no time we can just go steady
We can do whatever you want

PRACTICING feat. TOBE NWIGWE

Everybody says follow the rules
But what works for me might not work for you
And sometimes they’re right and sometimes they’re wrong
It just goes to show
We’re just practicing and no one really knows
No one
No one yea
No one.
They always told me my ideas would never work
Go to college get ya degree so you can go to work
Cause you’re gonna need a backup plan
Just in case anything happens
That’s the only thing they understand
They don’t think that you can do it if they’ve never seen it done
So to my dreamers
Keep dreaming
And if you got the master plan keep scheming
Gon’ have some doubters
That’s how it goes
But to be honest nobody really knows
Everybody says follow the rules
But what works for me might not work for you
And sometimes they’re right and sometimes they’re wrong
It just goes to show
We’re just practicing and no one really knows
My mama prolly thought I was gonna hit the league… but I didn’t.
She told me TOB you should go get a real J.O.B. …But I didn’t
Sometimes disobedience is the Ingredient needed
To clear ya path of them feces and demons that mislead ya
To the plight of bondage in line with them folk from Egypt
Before they got they got the receipt that pharaoh denied em freedom
I know them shackles that’s on you get comfortable in this system, specially where they hit the kill switch on a cat-a-pil-lars vision, to be a butterfly, and hover by, Kinsmen that have been suckered by, thoughts that bread only come when you make butta fly OUU..
I hope you get it.. I do.. I might just write the ones in the slums with the drums a haiku
To let them know that there’s plenty tycoons that come from typhoons
And ain’t no rules it’s a game of fools and we all just like you cause…
Everybody says follow the rules
But what works for me might not work for you
And sometimes they’re right and sometimes they’re wrong
It just goes to show
We’re just practicing and no one really knows

I’m going back to all those dreams I once had
Before I let all these things in my head
My 8 year old self would be so disappointed
Cause I started to doubt everything we said
But sometimes life gets hard
And you just don’t know
If you can still do all the things you dreamt before
But you don’t need to grow up
That’s the beginning of the end
You just need to believe like a kid again
Like a kid again, kid again
You just need to believe like a kid again
See sometimes I wish I didn’t know all I know
I used to believe in the impossible
But at some point I started to trust in only what I see
When honestly my faith is really all I need
But sometimes life gets hard
And you just don’t know
If you can still do all the things you dreamt before
But you don’t need to grow up
That’s the beginning of the end
You just need to believe like a kid again
Like a kid again, kid again
You just need to believe like a kid again
Like a kid again, kid again
You just need to believe like a kid again

Baby girl I know haven’t been perfect for you
But before you say we’re through
I think you should think a little while
Cause this just a bump in the road
We’ll get over this
Just like the last one that we did
And now we’re closer because of it
What we have is worth it
And we just can’t desert it
We gotta keep going strong
It’s not worth keeping if it’s not worth fighting for
No matter how long it takes
I’m willing to wait
We can’t lose to hate
Cause we were built for love
Baby it ain’t easy loving you
When the lights shut off and the rent is due
But somehow we always make through
That’s what I call love
So even when I fuss and complain
Baby you know and I know
I ain’t going no where
I’m staying right here
That’s what I call love
What we have is worth it
And we just can’t desert it
We gotta keep going strong
It’s not worth keeping if it’s not worth fighting for
No matter how long it takes
I’m willing to wait
We can’t lose to hate
Cause we were built for love
Yes we’re built for love
(Baby it’s you and me)
We’re built for love
(The way it will always be)
We’re built for love
(No matter how hard it gets)
Yes we’re built for love
We’ll always past the test
What we have is worth it
And we just can’t desert it
We gotta keep going strong
It’s not worth keeping if it’s not worth fighting for
No matter how long it takes
I’m willing to wait
We can’t lose to hate
Cause we were built for love
We were built for love
We were built for love
We were built for love

I know it’s been so hard and you don’t know what it all means
But don’t you ever let go
See there’s a reason you’re still standing
After all all you’ve seen
So don’t you ever let go
Don’t let go
Don’t let go
Please just don’t ever let go
You’re getting tired
And it feels like it’s been going on for years
But don’t you ever let go
Nothing wrong with crying
There’s no denying
Let out all your tears
But please just don’t ever let go
Don’t let go
Don’t let go
Don’t you ever let go
Don’t let go
Don’t let go
Don’t you ever let go

(I just wanna tell you something)
Yo I wanna ring
I mean call you up
One day you ring me up
Been through the ringer too much
My heart cautious
I don’t wanna lose
Ain’t never speak so
Either we gon’ swim or duck
Question love
To never have love that sucks
One foot in the stars
And I don’t wear chucks
One foot to the heart
That would kill us love
They say fear never got nobody nowhere
So we can’t be scared when we think of us
Just need another shot
An attempts a must
You miss a hundred percent
of what you don’t throw up
So I hope we get another shot
For us
(You believe me)
Gonna try one more time
I’m crossing the line
Risking being hurt once more
But I don’t think I can take
Another heartbreak
Just asking you to be sure
And..
Please don’t break my heart
Please don’t break my heart
I just can’t take it
I just can’t take it
I just can’t take it
I just can’t take it
I just can’t take it
I just can’t take it
Please just don’t make
Make my heart break
There’s no need to feel pressure
If you think it’s better
We can just take more time yea
Because I would rather
You be totally sure
Instead rushing then you changing your mind
Just ..
Please don’t break my heart
Please don’t break my heart
I just can’t take it
I just can’t take it
I just can’t take it
I just can’t take it
I just can’t take it
I just can’t take it
Please just don’t make
Make my heart break
Take all the time
That you need to
Make up your mind
As to what you want to do
Just ..
Please don’t break my heart
Please don’t break my heart
I just can’t take it
I just can’t take it
I just can’t take it
I just can’t take it
I just can’t take it
I just can’t take it
Please just don’t make
Make my heart break
I just can’t take it
I just can’t take it
I just can’t take it
I just can’t take it
I just can’t take it
I just can’t take it
Please just don’t make
Make my heart break
Play on..

It’s getting hard
For me to hold my own
See nobody wants to be in love alone
So I’m trying my best
Not to overreact
But I need to know right now
No lies just facts
So if you love me
Just say so
Cause I can’t play these games with you no more
So if you love me
Just say so
I need to know from you right now before I go
It’s just that
I can feel I’m falling deep
And I don’t wanna fall unless you’re falling with me
And I need to know
If this is really real
And if you feel the same way that I feel
So if you love me
Just say so
Cause I can’t play these games with you no more
So if you love me
Just say so
I need to know from you right now before I go
Just say La la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la la la la la
Baby I hope that you understand
This is for my peace of mind
And I just don’t wanna waste anymore time
And if this love isn’t what you want
Then baby let me know
I don’t wanna go but I’ll walk out that door
So if you love me
Just say so
Cause I can’t play these games with you no more
if you love me
Just say so
I need to know from you right now before I go

I can’t believe that we’re still going through the same shh
Sometimes it gets so bad I can’t even handle it
If I see another black boy die at the hands of this
I don’t know
Don’t wanna lose control
But it can’t last forever
Seasons change as does the weather
Things are bound to get better
As the days go by
Make America Great Again
I think they mean when it was great for them
Cause it wasn’t so great for everyone back then
So when
I can have all the money and the fame and they still don’t care
Cause If I get pulled over I still gotta live in fear
Martin said injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere
I hope we can get there
But nothing lasts forever
Seasons change as does the weather
Things are bound to get better
As the days go by
Make America Great Again
I think they mean when it was great for them
Cause it wasn’t so great for everyone back then
So when
You say America was at its greatest point in the 1950s, when we couldn’t drink out YOUR fountain, sit at YOUR lunch counter or vote in YOUR elections? America is great for whom?
Was America great for Emmett Till? For Terrence Crutcher? How about the 4 little girls? Or the Central Park 5? or the Emmanuel 9? Was America great for Rodney King? For Philando Castille? For Sandra Bland? Or Pamela Turner? .. I don’t even have the breath to say America is great.. Eric Garner.. Make America Great Again? Again when?
