This time round... This time round... Lucky try Can’t find the words to say Can’t find the words to say With you locked up in your own state of mind Would it be easier, if I... if I were to leave you in the back of my mind? Not tryna complicate a thing Don’t wanna complicate a thing With you – oh With you – oh With you… I wish I, I wish I – I wish I met you before I wish I, I wish I – I would love you in another time I wish I, I wish I – I wish I could only hold you, hold you, hold you, hold you… Reflect on thoughts at the waterline Water turns to wine with a slosh Pay no mind to my watch But I watch my mind getting lost Ducks' squabble contrasts with the trucks’ wobble on the road Old man's hobble makes the young man appreciate the past and its load...

Earth, fire, water, wind Birth, higher, thirst, win Earth, fire, water, wind Birth, higher, thirst, win I don’t know where I’m going and there’s no way of knowing but trust I'm fearful, and my knees shake I'm frozen, it’s a cold lake then my tears fall it's an ocean motion Trust Hold on forever and never let go It’s better to let your children know I'm fearful, and my knees shake I'm frozen, it’s a cold lake then my tears fall it's an ocean motion Earth, fire, water, wind Birth, higher, thirst, win I evaluate my composition so I can execute my mission Earth, fire, water, wind Birth, higher, thirst, win I salivate toward fruition so I can demonstrate my vision Earth, fire, water, wind Birth, higher, thirst, win Earth, fire, water, wind Birth, higher, thirst, win

Girl, I left you a note, What it said - I don’t even know But can't you reply? Even if you say no... Girl, I left you a note, What it said - I don’t even know But can't you reply? Even if you say no... See my rap game counting down, all along, all alone.. See my rap game counting down, all along, all alone.. See my rap game counting down, all along, all alone.. See my rap game counting down, all along, all alone.. Ooh, ooh, ooh, my love Girl, I left you a letter What it said - I didn't know better. What I wrote - down I blush, Now when I think about it. Girl, I wrote you a play, Starring me and you in the way, In which I thought it should be. But I didn't give you no say...

Oh, you either wait or leave... Sometimes you stay to please...

Oh, why do people do nothing? Scrambling to take Not thinking what to bring Oh, why am I still scared to share? Catch me acting fake Protecting my estate I’m scared And I should really bite my tongue Run outside and jump Jump into the lake And you’ve got everything to give No need to be afraid It’s not what it is, It’s how it’s made Before, before, before… What’s going on…? 2,000 years ago Before, before, before… Ascension… Jump into the lake Run outside and jump Jump into the lake

I see your face, Tears fall from mine To a crystal lake That reflects my mind. I long for you, But I know the truth, That to love you Is to let you loose. It’s beautiful (you’re beautiful) To let you go, So you can learn all the things you need to know About yourself, So you can feel at home Wherever you choose to go. I wanna hold you, Control you, so you can’t leave Patrol you, so you can’t leave But then you can’t breathe It’s all about me – fuck that. Girl, you make me feel so good Sparkle in my eyes Warm inside Truth, telling no lies Natural, flow with tides Sensual, comforting All I wanna do is go adventuring Explore the world, sharing all the pearls, and all the hurts. Fly to the stars, Fall to the sea, Lie in the sand, Hold hands while we breathe, Or just go out for lunch, I don’t care too much. Time away, Time alone, Everybody’s gotta do things on their own and I don’t wanna smother your lust for life With my lust for love When I hold too tight.

It’s easy to be a do-gooder, Doing what he should've It’s easy to be a do-gooder Not what he could do, yeah… Movement is the thread And if you freeze You’ll be dead Lose your heart to your head Vitality to dust And your dreams start to rust As your lust goes to bed Thinking about bread and why you’re dead. Change is the fabric of life Learning to weave Learning to stop fighting the waves Seeing the light through the ways of existence Persistence is a must Learning to drop resistance and replacing it with trust. It’s easy to be a do-gooder, Doing what he should've It’s easy to be a do-gooder Not what he could do, yeah… I weigh up my truth and lies And what I’ve lost, At what cost do I keep the comfort To come first in the eyes of others? Brothers, sisters, lovers But no other can give me what I need What I need is to hear that it's okay to be me Everything I am: a man, a boy, a brother, a son, a lover Just another beast, a thief, a healer My mother fought to feed her farm of flesh My father shot himself through her chest, No cupid 1, 2, 3 – then me Young, stupid, lucid, who? I and you, Mr. Mirror New kid, old crib, same stigma Lost in lions den, Where brothers threw fists at my bliss to vent, I saw no contempt Pain raised me from the womb, forced to face cause and effect My kin, the clue, clutched close to what I chose to begin Spin this web of sinew and clay, Slim waist holds the sin of sold slaves Solved equation Told to chase and chin up Vessel thin, but thicker skin then most men figure, for real Raised to fear no stone thrown Where the broke broke into broken homes to break bread Evading death with every left I take Breathe life instead through the sentence said Create the blueprint ahead of time Behind no blinder The rhyme, my soul reminder of my heart.

Moonface 03:33
Part of me I know, for real, believes in it Above, my love, a dove for you And me This love is all there was before What to do? I feel I’ve lost Caught a moonface Full of wonder

How long to wait? How can I tell if it’s too late? You... you make it so hard to tell where I stand and where I should go How long to wait? How can I tell if it’s too late? You... you make it so hard to tell where I stand and where I should go You are the one and you’ve got me coming undone, and I won’t give up, until you tell me what’s up
