AV from VA I used to read this guy's bio section on MySpace back in '07 and wonder 'Who are you, where did you come from, and how are you able to articulate everything I'm feeling so eloquently??' Words are stupid, unless it's Coultrain singing them. If you're unfamiliar with his music & need a comparison, he's kind of like something along the lines of a Jose James, Cody Chesnutt, Gary Clark Jr. or Bilal, but nothing like them and better. Production from Black Spade is equally genius. St. Louis is red hot! Favorite track: The Reintroduction.

What could be so mean, & sweet, & innocent, & so guilty? Coming to thrill, Coming to kill... What kind'a creature could sigh & moan, and play her part, Oscar-worthy on a throne? None other than a witch, An irresistable bitch, I love U Is this the kiss of death, The apple in the tree? Is this the kiss of death? She doesn't belong to anyone, a daughter of the moon & sun Too hot to handle, Too cold to hold... When was desire so pure, and debaucherous inside? Nasty to the core, My angelic whore Is this the kiss of death, The apple in the tree? Is this the kiss of death?

Beware of the quiet times that give U joy perpetually If U know what I mean, U need to see Y, that for every laugh U steal, There’s a hidden tear crawlin' underneath, underneath, lying at ur feet So load ur gun and pack ur bags if the harder solutions come too easy Maybe it’s a skeleton that U’ve misplaced or forgotten in ur rotten memory So when it comes after U, can U justify the stain in ur sheets? Run run run run, run run run, or remain haunted Run run run run, run run run, am I haunted? Beware of the jump ahead, look over the edge before U leap, cuz the climb is steep and full of thieves Don’t forget to say ur prayers, before I lay me down to sleep If U find U can sleep, even with a heart that bleeds So take ur umbrella, and tell her her lips were always sweet Cuz forgiveness is a crafty devil, in the crossroads, to beat So when it comes after U, can U justify the stains in ur sheets? Run run run run, run run run, or remain haunted Run run run run, run run run, am I haunted like a dusty piano? or straighten it out...

See, str8 thru my heart she shot an arrow, with her name all over it An element of surprise, an invite back to the living What was asleep, but she’s awakened it Cuz clocks held no place, and I reserved her space for more than special occasions, yea yea And I carry the taste of the curves of her face, and I absorb all of her phrases, yea yea (I love ur mouth, and how it feels) Oh, I can pretend like I deserve U at all, its like U fell from the sky (She introduced me to a new way to look at life) & I won't contend to say she’s the pinnacle (She introduced me to a new way to look at life, all of my life, I...) Magical affairs and sparks everywhere, the epitome of fairytale U could never lose... who could lose with a smile so infectious? Wish that time had left me there I never knew intimacy could exist so deeply without penetration And I never grow tired of this pure desire, it is constant elation, yea Oh, I can pretend like I deserve U at all, its like U fell from the sky (She introduced me to a new way to look at life) & I won't contend to say she’s the pinnacle (She introduced me to a new way to look at life, all of my life, I...)

Darling, hold that thought, cuz if I don’t pour this all out now I may never will I had to come back to say what I found so hard to explain before Blame my pride, but I just couldn’t stand the thought of floatin up there in that bird alone, above the clouds, flying away to start a new life without u Truly, u struck me blind, frozen in time on one whiff of your perfume Oh, I was a fool, I was a fraud, my feelings were raw, believed what I saw Have I kept U waiting long? Be a darling & pass the jam Cuz none of this makes any sense without U, U are my favorite test Cuz it ain't gotta be that way if we don’t want it to, U are my favorite dream Cuz the best of it would be so empty without U, U are my favorite pain None of this makes any sense without U Oh, how I wish I had a house for U to come & decorate it But these frivolous things slip like sweet fantasies, but please... Darling, lay ur gorgeous ass down tonite, ur million questions wont expedite the meaning of our love, nor abide in the spaces they speak of, suga Suppose we don’t doubt, & redefine the way to figure it all out, Who could say they could predict the consequences? Don’t look that way now, Be a darling & pass the jam Cuz none of this makes any sense without U, U are my favorite test Cuz it ain't gotta be that way if we don’t want it to, U are my favorite dream Cuz the best of it would be so empty without U, U are my favorite pain None of this makes any sense without U Tree houses and sandcastles, below a million stars tonight

4 the sake of revenge, I kept us on opposite ends and it backfired on me Ah, U see, U turned me out, Random chicks in my bed, to forget about U But it's no use, U are, by far, the 1st and last to conquer my heart Let's pretend, let's pretend, Let's pretend it will last 9 days I held U, like a ticking bomb – ready to go off, to explode with a power that glows like nothing else these eyes have seen before See, there’s flowers in hell, a sleeping house that yells ur name Night after night it’s the same, just finds me reaching out for U Every morning U’re there, the scent of ur hair, the length of ur stare Sharp and bold, silver and gold, stalking my steps like a shadow, so Let's pretend, let's pretend, Let's pretend it will last Let's pretend, let's pretend, Let's pretend it will last

All dressed up with nowhere to go Drunk on memories, with nothing to smoke Watching her naked letters sing where nobody knows, Still this can't be wrong And the sky was an ocean of lavender grey And I left all my thoughts back on the train See, nobody told she can't leave and she can't stay, Where did she come from? Cuz it was over almost before it got started, It was over almost before it got started It was over, in the side effex of make-believe Who knows the weight of mistakes? Cuz when she finds her way back, I'll give what she takes When I smell the soft rain, she knows I've been astray – To them, I'll never belong Only to the leftover traces, of things left unsaid, That always swimmed around on my tongue, but stayed in my head And everything we came for bloomed, then left for dead And the queen hums her lonely song Cuz it was over almost before it got started, It was over almost before it got started It was over, in the side effex of make-believe
