Blowing It Away


image

You’re blowing it away…

Waiting for a love like hers has me in hell, so I might as well exhale.
I have to have you now for all the time lost.
Your words linger on my lips so bittersweet.
They say that this too shall pass, but I don’t know.

This is too good.
I’m blowing it away.
There’s too much to lose.
I’m blowing it away.
Let it in, let it out.

All I’ve done was to feel your heat on repeat.
If I can’t have you, I’ll have Mary Jane on my mind.
Show me the way or take it all away.
Let me gaze at the moon until I lose my senses.

This is no good.
You’re blowing it away.
You don’t even know.
You’re blowing it away.
Let it in, let it out.

Everything changes irrevocably when you come around, fatal attraction.
What remains of yesterday stands to lose its place with every breath we take.
This chemical cocktail love is only temporary.

Let it in, let it out.
Cloud my judgment from my troubles, one more time.
These shades of grey feel good.
Let it in, let it out.

I’m blowing it away.
You’re blowing it away.

Operate


Flirt with my imagination
Move with my attention in mind
Touch this life like the miracle that you are
Shine some light on this current condition
Put me under

Take your time & my breath
You know that I won’t say no

This composure’s an act, an illusion
Strip away everything, start from the top
The bottom line’s you’re my Doctor
I trust you with my body & mind

You made an impression way before your skin found it’s way against mine
You know your way around me so well
You’re good, I’m better because of you
Nothing is as impressive as what your company does to me
It’s never too much, just right, so right

Take your time & my breath
You know that I won’t say no

Game of Hearts


Game of Hearts

Game of Hearts

Crushes can break you & love can make you
Dates come & go, but partners never leave you stranded
It’s that ride or die tide coming in everytime I sign up to ship out with you

Think about it for a second
You don’t gamble with certainty, you take risks with the unknown
Faith ain’t blind when you’re listening to your heart & mine
Love isn’t a crutch, it isn’t something you hold onto
Unless my black heart breaks your big heart & my views make your tears swell
You don’t have to worry about a thing
Once the words “I will change” become a regular part of every conversation
That’s your cue to move on & make reservations

We don’t always do what’s best for us because we’re afraid of being “selfish”
But it’s not selfish if you’re doing what’s right
Making moves on strangers while ignoring the heartbeat of your back home love is unforgivable
So if you can go a day or more without thinking of another, maybe it’s time to cut the cord & call it over
Love doesn’t dance with desperation just to feel a spark
Don’t play games with hearts
Every round cuts deep like diamonds

Crushes can break you & love can make you
Dates come & go, but partners never leave you stranded
It’s that ride or die tide coming in everytime I sign up to ship out with you

Player one, game over
You can’t win with a hand full of hearts
You just lose when you try to suit yourself
Every game in town is sleeping around, popping cherries two at a time like pills
One night isn’t worth the fight
Real love doesn’t play for keeps because it isn’t playing at all
Everywhere I go, I’ll have you by my side
So take my hand & we can figure this love game out
Let’s be real & see how that feels
It’s that ride or die tide coming in everytime I sign up to ship out with you

Show Me



Would you sing a song for me?
Would you put on a show tonight?
I’ll be your audience, captivated by your light
The world outside goes silent when you open your mouth
So show me what you’ve got
I’m waiting

I’m in the front row taking it all in, basking in your energy
Your voice takes me on a tour
Fast or slow, I know that you’ll set the tempo right
Gotta keep it fresh to keep me surprised
I can’t count stars with you in my view
You’re my supernova
I see you & I’m blinded by that body
You move like you’re on fire & your touch only spreads the flames
Keep it up & I’m gon’ put you up on screen when the lights go off

Show me what you’ve got
I’m waiting

Every night’s something new with you
Give me some leeway & I might steal you away
With every step you take you steal my breath away
Do what you gotta do to keep me on my toes
Your eyes are the only light show I know
You know I’m gonna be the one to follow you from show to show
I’m backstage peeking behind your curtains
You know this ain’t no dress rehearsal
Gotta get it right to keep me satisfied
Come midnight my kisses will be your performance review

Would you sing a song for me?
Would you dance with me tonight?
I’ll be your partner, sharing the spotlight
The world outside goes silent when we’re alone
So show me what you’ve got (tonight)
I’m waiting

Don’t Get It (Anymore)


What Do You Want?

I just don’t get it anymore (more, more, more, more)
I’m not the one that you’re here for (no, no)
You used to say that you love me
But I just don’t get it anymore

Am I the one that your heart beats for?
When did you flip the script & decide to cast me away, only to have another replace me in your midnight play?
You could tell me anything
But I don’t hear a thing anymore
Why are you hiding?

I just don’t get it anymore (more, more, more, more)
I’m not the one that you’re here for (no, no)
You used to say that you love me
But I just don’t get it anymore

What’s changed? I’m the same
If you want something different let me know
Cus you were acting so in love, with your hand upon their heart
Your body fits me like a glove
But your idea of love is a little too loose for me lately
If you wanted out, here’s your opening

I just don’t get it anymore (more, more, more, more)
I’m not the one that you’re here for (no, no)
You used to say that you love me
But I just don’t get it anymore

What do you want?
Hope I’m not being childish when I ask
Are we friends? Are we lovers? Are we just something in between?
Are you fucking with me?
Cus you’ve been messing with my mind & I can’t find my heartbeat

We’re out of sync
I just don’t get it anymore
What we’re you thinking?
It wasn’t me, of that much I’m damn sure
You used to say that you love me
But I just don’t get it anymore (more, more, more, more)

No more
