Wake Up

 

I wake up I look around but you're no where to be found and

I must’ve had another dream of you sleeping with me and

its messed up you’re on my mind like all the time and

i thought I had ya, in my arms then I heard the alarm

it goes nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah

 

I wake up in time to call my mind up

Tell her baby you crazy you got me wound up

You got me mumbling, rumbling through the sheets

You're running right through my dreams We’re tumbling through the weeds

I'm ripping your clothes right at the seams/seems like we got it all figured out

A big house, little dog, and an empty couch

Cause we be rollin the floor You steady begging for more

And just as im bout to score Im woken up by my snores

 

CHORUS

 

I could’ve swore it was real

I gotta tell you how it made me feel, it made me feel

So damn good, like I was finally waking up as I should

With a beautiful girl she told me I was her world

Like hunny, I don’t want your money, I just want your lovin

And that laugh I find so funny

She said look hunny I don’t want your money

I just want your lovin and that laugh I find so funny

I replied "that’s fine, if its raining in your mind

I can be the sunshine to dry your teary eyes

You can count on me me me

Like 1 2 3"

But you were too good too good too good to be true 

you were too good too good too good to be true

you were too good too good too good to be true

too good too good to good

said you were too good too good too good to be true

I'm sick of tossing and turning and dreaming of loving you

you were too good too good too good to be true 

cause it was just another dream of me and you

 

CHORUS

Outta Here

 

Don’t flatter yourself

Cause girl you're wrong I don’t want you

Your idea of self worth is so far gone you don’t have a clue

You're spreadin yourself thin and im not interested

So find that hollow man you wish to come complete your sins

 

Im outta here I'm leavin

Don’t you try to catch me baby

Cause I'm out of your league

And love affects me kinda crazy

I want all in or nothing

Don’t raise me while bluffing

Cause I'll call and you’ll fold

And my heart will turn cold as ice

wave goodbye to the nice guy that I once was

 

I've got scars, they remind me of when

I bared it all and got rejected

I've got burns all down my sleeves

They remind me of being naïve

Throughout these years, I've faced my fears

I wrote tales of love that ended in tears

But now it's time I learn from my mistake

And get out now before you turn me away

oh yeah it's time I end the war

I promise my last scar will be yours

 

CHORUS

 

I don’t wanna stain my picture perfect reputation

So I will keep this to myelf, cause if I don’t I'll self destruct

Cause you would be my last straw forcing me to withdraw

From the Good Guy team I lead, and that’s not something I believe in

 

CHORUS

 

I want love, sweet love,  sweet love my love

I want love your love, your love

but this is what, I tell myself

you don’t deserve my love, my love

you don't deserve my love, my love

Last Call

 

Start the night with something sweet end it all with a little bit of you and me

Pour me down a little whiskey light me up in feelin frisky now

You got style, I kinda like that so tell me now do you like me

Back of the bar as the clock strikes 2 don’t know where you’re goin but I know I wanna go with you

 

Last call it’s the last chance

For you and me to spark a romance

Under the Hollywood lights we are

Frozen in time, you and I, everybody’s lookin but I don’t mind

 

I want late night lovin at the townie bar

You can have my number but not my heart

I got a little something for you if you got it for me

You can be my woman as we walk to the car

You can ride my loving but not too far

I got a pocket full of something for you if you feel lucky

 

Come on home, My love is gonna ride you all night long

Come with me, Rock your hips like you are the rolling sea

 

Lace em up let me see you move, Hit the floor now baby dance and groove

Show me what I wanna see Can you keep up, or am I too fast

Can you be rough while keeping your class

Im into you, I think you're my type

So tell me know do you like me sight of me

As the lights are freed, we can cause a scene

Like we’re living on a movie screen

 

Pre Chorus

Chorus

[Live Version]

{I don’t wanna sleep alone

Im lonely and you feel like home

I don’t wanna sleep alone

Its lonely in an empty home

Come on home, cuz darling we’re better alone

Come with me, cuz darling I got what you need}

 

Come on home, cuz darling we’re better alone

Come with me, we’ll take a trip for 2 on a loving spree

Bad For Me

 

Everybodys talking bout the new girl comin round shes always got something to say

Or something to prove like she got something to lose if everything doesn’t go her way

With her high heels on and that red dress long, even though we just shooting the breeze

She got a tat of a cat smoking cigs, drinking jack as centerpiece of her sleeve

Take a step back from me, cuz girl you're no match for me

Im drawn to you naturally cuz you're everything bad for me

 

I know that you're bad for me but I don’t wanna be good I don’t wanna be good

Cause you know its hard to see me not loving you good like I know I should

 

Everybodys talking bout the new girl coming round you know shes straight out of her mind

If looks could kill I know she’d shoot for thrill, shes a devil disguise

She got hot red eyes that make medusa cry and lips that could sink a ship

She chugs her wine, while throwin hooks at guys and talking bad about her click

So Take a step back from me, cause girl you're no match for me

Im drawn to you naturally cause you're everything bad for me

 

CHORUS

 

So Take a step back from me, cuz girl you're no match for me

Im drawn to you naturally cuz you're everything bad for me

You look with crooked eyes, you're something my mother would despise

But I feed on all your lies, ill be my witness to testify

 

CHORUS

A Walk In The Park

 

Cause Ive got everything I need everything I need but I don’t have what I want

Cause I want you

 

Oh now shes knows, I told her every little thing last night

And now she goes, I wish it went different when things were right

Well so do I, so baby lets get high and try touch the sky

 

We can fly above this world leave it all behind

Just me and you and a bottle of wine

'Ill get a new tattoo on the back of my mind

And it will read your name but I'll dot the I with a heart

And maybe this is the start this is the start of something pretty

We’ll light up a spark you and me in the dark walking around the city

We’ll tell jokes about cute old folks who fell in love                                                                                         

And that’ll be us, baby your my crush so lets get involved

 

CHORUS

 

I can show you the world, shining shimmering things you wont believe

If you're my girl I’ll treat our life like it is a movie scene

Cut …. No lights, no camera, all I need is action

Woo… keep rolling baby give me satisfaction

And attraction I could use a hot distraction

I'm old fashioned I want passion and loving interaction

I want dancing, romancing my moves are quite enchanting

You're a princess and not a damn thing less to me

You're a lioness so get lying next to me

And ill be your king

 

CHORUS

Love Me

 

She said love me, out in the street

She said love me up up under the sheets

She said love me out in the street

She said love me up up under the sheets

 

But you're the one that should be loving me

Yea you're the one that should be lovin me

Why can't you see that? Why can't you see that?

 

You said you've had no luck with the lovers you've loved

But I think your luck is turning

Around for the better I would bet that I can weather your storm

Take a leap of faith no don’t you stay and wait

Cause the greatest danger ever is to just go play it safe

 

She said love me, out in the street

She said love me up up under the sheets

She said love me out in the street

She said love me up up under the sheets

 

But you're the one that should be loving me

Yea you're the one that should be lovin me

Why can't you see that? Why can't you see that?

 

You can beg you can plead even on your knees

But that’s not the way to get your love from me

give a little loving ill give it back to you double yea

Give a little loving ill give it back to you double

Moonlit Tragedy

 

Last night I told her, She was the perfect girl for me

but now I'm sober and I just cant seem to agree

last night I told her everything that she wanted to hear

but now it's over and she keeps yappin in my ear

so leave me lonely until the night breaks down again

and find me awake waiting for you inside a bed

I'll dim the lights down just make sure that you lock the door

don’t let them find out tonight youll be my little

 

horrified am I to make you wake alone but tomorrow I'll be gone

and all that I can say is that I’m sorry this wont last past dawn

I just hate sleepin alone

 

Maybe one day ill find a way to keep myself under control

but as for tonight lest just wait till we can finally be alone

ill sing sweet lullaby’s so true if you’ll love me like id love you to

Cuz I planned on sleeping under you

so leave me breathless Take over all my senses

Its our dirty secret My little damsel in dis

 

Stressed am I to find I'll wake alone tomorrow morning you’ll be gone

And you’ll apologize for leaving me but I won’t cry cuz I know why

Oh I know, you just hate sleeping alone

 

But I, think ive fallen

I might have fallen

In this moonlit tragedy

The Proposal

 

Tell me you want me Tell me to stay

Tell me you wouldn’t have it any other way

Tell me im all yours Tell me today

Tell me right now before I turn and walk away

 

Ive been thinkin, over thinkin 

Every little thing you say and do

Ive been thinking overthinking

When you looked at me and said you felt it too

 

Tell me you love me Tell me to stay

Grab me around my waist don’t let me walk away

Tell me im all yours Tell me today

Tell me I warm your soul when skies are cloudy gray

 

I pray you feel the same

Cause ive been thinkin bout giving you my last name

This world is full of crazy things but the most insane must be

Waking up without you next to me

I don’t wanna wake without you next to me

 

Tell me you love me And that will never change

Tell me that im the one you call your ball and chain

Tell me im all yours And you’re here to stay

Tell me you’ll die if we don’t kiss everyday

 

I'll be the mister if you’ll be my misses

And I'll be the wizard to grant you all of your wishes

Follow me alone we’ll tip toe down a golden road

When we finally find a home I'll put my queen atop her thrown 

 

I'll tell her "I love you" everyday

I'll come home with chocolates and a red bouquet

We’ll get through the hard times We’ll never fray

We’ll stay in color while the worlds in black and gray

 

Tell me you want me, Tell me to stay

Grab me around my waist don’t let me walk away

Tell me you’ll love me  until our final days

Cause I’ve been hoping that you’ll marry me someday

Open Road

I take a deep grip

Hand on the throttle, a sweet little mama on my hips

Keep your eyes on the coast yea you don’t want to miss it

I smell the ocean breeze and I taste it on my lips

Out in the Florida heat and I know that you feel this feel this

It sounds odd but I think that maybe I

Am hearing voices as the trees go wizzing by yea

It sure sounds like

The open road is, tellin me I should find a home by the coast and

Spend all my money on fine wine and cigars, on hot women at bars

On some watches and cars, without a probable cause

I dream big, it’s a habit of mine. I wanna be rich before I hit 29

And blow it all in one night

can't stop me now

Can't stop me now

can't stop me now now now now

it sounds odd but I think that maybe I

Am hearing voices as the trees go wizzing by

It sure sounds like

The open road is, tellin me I should find a home by the coast and

Spend all my money on fine wine and cigars, on hot women at bars

On some watches and cars, without a probable cause

Wanna score an Instagram hottie, with a coke bottle body

She be holding down shotty while I drive my bugatti

Im gonna get a jet and we’ll fly from LA to Dubai

We’ll dive out in the sky with just no good reason why

We’ll make love in the air cuz just f it who cares

Gonna get a yacht and a jetskit, ride it with someone sexy

Find a vintage old chevy, paint it red like a cherry

Park it inside my mansion with the stereo blasting

While my girls are all dancing and im up late just laughing

it sounds odd but I think that maybe I

Am hearing voices as the trees go wizzing by

It sure sounds lik

The open road is, tellin me I should find a home by the coast and

Spend all my money on fine wine and cigars, on hot women at bars

On some watches and cars, without a probable cause

Hello N.Y.

Ill keep it short, you’re my favorite lady

There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do to get you

Ill keep it short, you’re the im craving

Can't wait til I finally get my hands on you

Cuz itll be game over and done

I'd have to run from your pops he’d come and get me

And your brothers another one who wouldn’t be happy with me

I wouldn’t mind, you're so damn fine I would risk it all to taste you

And if they come and find me they can do whatever they please

Cuz the beating ill get ill never regret if that means we’ll get high on loving

So tell em to bring it on I wont be running away

I'd take a bat to the back, if I can sleep with your ass at my place

 

Ill keep it short, ive had my eye on you lately

There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do to you

Ill keep it short, you’re the im craving

Can't wait til I finally get my hands on you

 

Itd be a wrap once we hit the sack cuz I know

you would say that the past has been whack

cuz you never felt anything quite like that before

and you'd call me again and say "baby when are you coming up to see me?

just keep it hush cuz I don’t want us to get found out"

but I wouldn’t care if they showed up there to cross my right off of their hit list

cuz there isn’t anything to keep me away from you

I'd take a brick to the head, if I can sleep in your bed this evening

Cuz them deep blue eyes bring out a little monster in me

And those toned up thighs could summon up a savage in the sheets

I think you’d be surprised by the language that I speak

And when I'm on the rise I'll have your body feelin weak

 

so Hello new york, I'm on my way in

I've been waiting too many years to get you alone

No it wont be short, cuz you got what im craving

Your skin on my skin under the moon

there aint one thing I wouldn't do to get my hands all over you

aint one thing i wouldn't do to get with you

Just know that one day I may have to leave

 

In search of a life that we all have once dreamed of

cuz you know I got your back, if ever you do fall

arms spread wide look up to the sky and maybe sing this song

 

I got my head up feeling like a million bucks

Cuz I aint dead yet even though the lightning has struck

Ya better bet that I be climbing up out the rut

And when I get back ima stick my flag in the mud

[REPEAT]

like what what go run down your dreams

but i said get up get up go do anything you believe

 

Cuz I be Armstrong walking on the moon for days

And while up im here ima start throwin some praise

Cuz it might not seem like I got a lot

But im dreaming I know that my dream will be got

someday ill look back and say

look what I done look what I over come

with just a little bit of elbow grease

Army Of One

Oh I never said that I was never coming back to you

And I hate to admit you got my heart with your stick and now I’m stuck under your voodoo

I never thought I’d get caught up in your web so soon

But the glare from your eyes just made me melt inside and I was hypnotized by the way you move

So take me miles away from this town

Where crashing waves and sweet reggae is the sound

Oh you and your army of one

Will never take back all that I’ve become

You’ll never take back all that I’ve become

You said what they all say and then you turned to walk away

but like the night turns to day you came right back around my way

but not today for things have changed and you will always stay the same

you’re messing with my brain you caused my heart to go insane now

and everytime that I walk away

oh it’s the more that I wished I could stay

but I’ve got the past set in my sights

I’ll pull that trigger tonight

before I turn my back to this

here’s a toast to all we’ll miss

here’s a toast to all that we’ll miss

So take me miles away from this town

Where crashing waves and sweet reggae is the sound

Oh you and your army of one

Will never take back all that ive become

Cigarettes

I got an idea for next year, it’s a product that’ll be hotter than the atmosphere
Once you start you can barely quit
Find yourself saying I just need one more hit
Pretty soon you're addicted fully committed
You’ll be feigning every time you start to miss it
Did I mention, heres my intention
The more you do the more you need the more you’ll be stressin
should I add it smells real gross
you can't escape cuz you baked into all of your clothes
and theres just one more thing, it'll kill you 

and theres just one more thing, it'll kill you 
And that sounds crazy so crazy but check it out  

 

Cigarettes are a real thing think about it 

Cigarettes are a real thing think about it 
Nothing like that would ever be legal
If our government cared about the people

we’re buying our way right to our death 
with every single pack of cigarettes
starting you’re life with a 100g debt
pretty soon we’ll all be addicted to meds
call me crazy call me blind
I just don’t see how they have us in mind x2

Cuz cigarettes are a real thing
Think about it

 

You feeling sad? Well here’s a cure
Swallow 2 or 3 of these before you walk out the door
They're selling pills with more side effects
Then the diagnosis that they claim they’re gonna correct
said now you aint right, no you aint right 
At 18 I can drive a deadly weapon

at 19 I can buy a carcinogen
At 21 I can drink poison, and yet I can't smoke a plant just for fun
You let me pay to kill myself, but I can't buy a little pleasure from a woman herself
If I wanna buy that why can't I, and if I grow plants why can't i?

 

cuz cigarettes are a real thing think about it

cuz cigarettes are a real thing think about it

so crazy so crazy yeaaahh they're a real real thing ah ah ah oh yea

Mansion

You and me in a horse drawn carriage

We’ll ride around the city streets

I’ll fall in love as the lights hit your lips

Then ill drop a grand for us to eat

We’ll walk the sidewalk just searching

for anything you wanna keep

like diamond earrings, heels and jewels girl

or that short red dress made by louie v

 

And you can wear it for me, in my mansion on the hill

Where we’ll never have to worry bout how we’ll pay our bills

Cuz the best is still coming, iver got music for days

And when its all over at least we’ll have some kids to raise

Theres no hard knock life, for you and me

I worked for our freedom theres no need to thank me

Just be

The woman of my dreams of I've been waiting patiently

To find a lady with a brain inside her head

Show me you can make me laugh

And then we’ll draw ourselves a bath and toast to living free

 

I'll buy a Ferrari in Miami

To go with the condo on the beach

Then we’ll buy a kite and fly it cuz I

Wanna stay grounded on my feet

And if a day goes by that I don’t call you hunny

Call the cops cuz something has gone astray

If I mess up and you don’t think its funny

We’ll make up in some fancy lingerie

And you can wear it for me, in my mansion on the hill

Where we’ll never have to worry bout how we’ll pay our bills

Cuz the best is still coming, iver got music for days

And when its all over at least we’ll have some kids to raise

Theres no hard knock life, for you and me

I worked for our freedom theres no need to thank me

My Sweetest Prize

its something i had never feared that i would have to watch you disappear

and it makes me sick, to think of all we've missed and the life we shared

we dont remember it cuz years have passed and memories did fade from our

weakened grasp as the time just drips away in the hourglass

only pictures remain of the world that we once knew

i asked the closest man to you

"pop would you take it back? if you knew what you know now

would you start fresh if you could take it back some how"

he said

i wouldnt change a thing if i could, id still marry the same old girl and

we would take on the world

she keeps me waking everyday the thought that ican see her face one more time

and as i watch her fade away i know my love will never stray from her heart

i watch my mother as she copes with the pain she shouts "oh lord i need you help

please lend a hand to me in these hard times don’t let me let myself give up"

cuz years have passed and memories did fade from our weakened grasp

as the time just drips away in the hourglass only pictures remain of the woman

we once knew

i would not change anything even if i even if I could

cuz she was always good to me to us my family please trust

that I will never stray away from her side

with every day that comes to pass you bet ill try to make her laugh my sweetest prize

and I say, pop I'd take the pain away and save you from you heartache

you know I would, only if I could only if I could

but now she's gone gone gone away the woman that we love found a better place

and there she will wait. To see your face and to hear you say

 

i wouldnt change a thing if i could

id still marry the same old girl and we would take on the world

she keeps me waking everyday the thought that i will see her face one more time

and as she watches everyday I know shes keepin me from harms way

until the day I see her face shes hears me say

I would change a thing if I could
