Track Name: Light on Your Toes
Stuck in a tunnel, now I’m on my way out.
I see the light at the end from digging such a long route.
Hunched over and grieving, gotta stop dragging my feet.
Heavy heart weigh me down, and my souls wear till they bleed.
I’ll take a seat and a deep breath-check the shape I’m in.
Think of how great I am rather than will be or have been.

You can always find your way even in the dark.
Give yourself a little shake till you find that spark-
It ignites the flame that burns within.
Then you’re light on your toes with a silly little grin.

Spent a long time climbing up the mountain just to find myself.
Back at the bottom feels like I’ve gotten nowhere.
But after all this time there’s a peace that I have found.
Staring from where I’m standing knowing I made it back down.
I look up to the sky-thank my lucky stars I’m alive.
Ready to shine for a change, rather than just getting by.

You can always find your way even in the dark.
Give yourself a little shake till you find that spark-
It ignites the flame that burns within.
Then you’re light on your toes with a silly little grin.

There’s no mistaken that you’re divine in your own way.
Now tell the World that this love in your heart will forever stay.

Stuck in the middle of a rock and a hard place.
Been banking on, waiting on the glory of a saving grace..
So much that I forgot the strength that’s within me.
Sound enough to transcend the hearsay and the mind thieves.
It’s been fed in my head that I’m free, yet I’m held down.
Now I remember my path and my skill and my know-how.

You can always find your way even in the dark.
Give yourself a little shake till you find that spark-
It ignites the flame that burns within.
Then you’re light on your toes with a silly little grin.
Track Name: Stay True
There’s a brilliance in your words under the layers of doubt-
And resilience in your heart waiting to shine out.
Let yourself be who and what you’ve always been.
Keep stirring up what you believe to be a unique blend.
Don’t dwell on the troubles you faced in your youth.
With the age comes the knowledge of what to do.
All this pressure weighing down your mind construed.
It will surely take over unless you tell the truth.
What do you have to prove?

So you think you’re struggling-it’s only to an extent.
Blow all your money now it’s harder just to pay the rent.
There’s people in this World that truly wish they had it this good.
They could trade a day with any one of us you know they would.
Live the life you love and love the life you live is what I’ve heard.
It’s a beautiful notion, but a little absurd.
Gotta be a balance between caring and not giving a damn.
Know what’s real now-I’m reaching out so take my hand.
I’ll show you-so don’t move and just be cool, cause I got you.
Let’s break through this ado, and stay true.

Look at you with all your bling you must be doing well.
If you have financial problems boy I just can’t tell.
You can get through any obstacle know matter how large,
Because this is your life and it is you who is in charge.
You can’t honestly give love until you love yourself.
When you do, then you’ll know that it’s the greatest wealth.
So stop your strutting like you constantly got something to prove.
Because there’s nobody in the contest being you.

Not a select few…it’s just you…and if you’re a strange brew…
Well that’s just you…and if you act like a fool…that’s just you.
So stay true.
Track Name: Would I, Will I
What’s with this mystery good man?
You’re hard to find, so wear it well.
No more victim of circumstance, nor afraid of yourself.
More recent slaving to the trends, but when those skinny jeans don’t fit.
Your image your ego defends, you forget you don’t know.
Shunning those you haven’t met, because their fun don’t match with yours.
You only see a silhouette of what is really at the core.

And all this time that you don’t have, to get the things that you need done..
Is spent reflecting what you had, always behind and gotta run..
And find that one with willing hands and heart you’ll search so far and wide.
In the meantime know you can live/love right now this wild ride.

There it goes! My conscience, patience with the World.
Worried I’ll never find that girl. So I’ll simmer and just be.
Then ask would I love me?

You already know how this will end if you continue down this road.
Then again, you’ll just pretend-give this another go.
What’s with this mystery good man? You’re hard to find, so wear it well.
No more victim of circumstance, nor afraid of this rebel yell!

There it goes! My conscience, patience with the World.
Worried I’ll never find that girl. So I’ll simmer and just be.
Then ask would I, will I love me?
Track Name: Right Now Time
Festive lights around my window-
I hope they make you smile when you walk by at night.
Press that number then I’ll buzz you in.
Greet you with a grin in a bowtie. Now lets get high…
On each other’s company-making ample harmonies.
This is a bona fide right now time.
Waste of energy to ire. You have natural desires you can’t disguise…
So why try.

Just do this, just do this. Do this, just do this. Do this, just do this.
I’m digging everything about you.
Do this, just do this. Do this , just oh oh ohhhh.

What a lovely evening. I’m feeling what you’re bringing. It’s so divine.
Lets top off that wine.
I am flying solo so lets make it a duo-just you and I. Would you oblige?
As this rhythm makes you move right along side my groove.
You’re in a special place. It’s all over your face.
In this moment now yousee how worthwhile we could be.
You’re so untypical. I wanna get physical now just do…

Do this, just do this. Do this, just do this. Do this, just do this.
I’m digging everything about you.
Do this, just do this. Do this , just oh oh ohhhh.

Soft lights burn all around. You’re vibing on my sound.
I want you all to me. To the umpteenth degree.
Could you just be down to enjoy our time right now.
Track Name: All We Need
I’m not always great at first impressions.
I got these layers, yet you say I’m a player.
Well maybe I am, or maybe not, that’s all perception.
You are no angel, but quite a lovely human.

There I go again, so sure of what I’m saying.
Prove to me I’m wrong with a love that’s much more strong…

To see through these petty things, that shady influence brings.
I’ll give my best to you, if you give your best too.

Those days live was simple, you’ve been missing.
All of these problems, and you’re expecting me to fix them.
And I know that for so long you’ve been hurting.
But I am no prophet, nor a master mind reading.

There I go again, with this love that must be forsaken.
Show me just how I’m wrong, with a love that’s much more strong…

To see through these petty things, that shady influence brings.
I’ll give my best to you, if you give your best too.

I’m so burnt on fighting. We can’t agree to disagree. So to you I will concede.
Now lets smile, laugh, hug…because that’s all we need.

There I go again, this love it must be forsaken.
Show me just how I’m wrong, with a love that’s much more strong…

To see through these petty things, that shady influence brings.
I’ll give my best to you, if you give your best too.

I’m so burnt on fighting. We can’t agree to disagree. So to you I will concede.
Now lets smile, laugh, hug…because that’s all we need.
Track Name: If Not Now
My heart is ready for you, but patience is my lonely virtue.
Laying on your bed giving you sweet caresses.
But I’m confused as to who your best is.

With all this blossoming, I know that I’m suppressing-
Feelings so much it hurts. This is more than mere desire.

What are we waiting for? If you feel the same then just open that safe door.
How could you hide something so strong?
If I am wrong please don’t lead me on.

With all this blossoming, I know that I’m suppressing-
Feelings so much it hurts. This is more than mere desire.
Though bonds in your past have failed, and now you’re waiting to exhale.
Don’t get yourself in a bind. If not now, then when will there be a right time?

Though bonds in your past have failed, and now you’re waiting to exhale.
Don’t get yourself in a bind. If not now, then when will there be a right time?
Track Name: Over You
Woke up, body’ is aching and worn. Still feeling it from the day before.
So I stood up and shook it off to start anew.
Two weeks till I walk out your door. First few days when it rained, it poured.
Then I pried myself open for what I had to do…

To get over you.

Trying hard to convince myself, that I was better with you walking out.
So I found a way to stand up tall without you.
Losing sleep with regret and doubt.
I couldn’t handle what your love was about.
So I greet the day with regret of what I have to do…

To get over you.

Sometimes I got red with rage, then it crossed my mind just to turn the page.
I blew away the ashes with a mouth full of smoke.
Blinded by the reflection of me, this man in the mirror still a boy with a dream.
I know it’s just me that I have to prove.
Wised up, feet down, walked away. Now I’m over you.

Window left cracked, I feel a soft breeze.
Eyes grow heavy, mind’s at ease.
No longer bothered, nor holding on to you.
Track Name: Lovejoy
You say you got this paranormal attraction-radiates this metaphysical reaction.
Take it from me, it’s all fiction and becoming your addiction and escape from yourself.
I’m from the outside looking in. You’d do the same for me my friend.
I know you’re gonna be headstrong. Swallow your pride, because you know your wrong.
Get a grip on yourself. She should be ashamed of herself.

Because she’s not ready for those shoes to fill. I halfway hope she never will.
She’s got some major problems-you feel that you’re the one to solve them.
All this submissive behavior, yet you’re posing as her savior.
Get this straight now. She’s bad for your health, and an escape from yourself.

So what the fuck? You got shot down by that other girl that kicked your heart around.
She really did a number on you to make you act this way you do.
Get a grip on yourself.
And now you’re left with this question: How do you deal with this rejection?
Find the next available girl in line. Though she ain’t worth a fraction of your time.
Get a grip on yourself. Because you really need to tell…

That she’s not ready for those shoes to fill. I halfway hope she never will.
She’s got some major problems-you feel that you’re the one to solve them.
All this submissive behavior, yet you’re posing as her savior.
Get this straight now. She’s bad for your health, and an escape from yourself.

She didn’t think or care that she would get busted.
She done proven she can’t be trusted.
Let her go. Let her go.

She’s not ready for you. You gotta let her go.
Track Name: Lost than Found
Some people purchase shoes for the color and the cover. Some prefer it bare.
These people in their shoes becoming swifter, whilst the others just don’t care.
They’re talking on their phones just to kill the time. Some don’t have that luxury.
Others always worried of what’s his or hers or mine.
What they’ll find will be a distant memory.

Living with regret is kindred to feeding a burden.
The past takes on a whole you cannot fill.
Fruition is in reach when you trust your intuition.
When it tells you let it go, I hope you will.

Rid of your fair weather ways. A lot to learn from a bad day.
Don’t get blinded by your eye for an eye.
Your inner child is lost then found…
And smiles in the rain, all the way home.
Track Name: Vital Soul
I’m living everyday as if it’s a holiday.
Taking pride in this essential revelry.
Acknowledging the dire things that still get in my way,
Yet never let them clout my well-being.

Love hangs on…as the night forego the dawn.

Collectively my life has changed in oh so many ways.
This boy is now the man I’ve grown to be.
This four letter word, from noun to verb, I yearn to celebrate…
In a crowded place or one that’s so serene.

Love stays strong…as the right swims with the wrong.

Now I’ll step outside of this paradigm with open arms and an open mind.
With my spirits high, feet on the ground, I’ll be a vital soul…
And then I’ll know. I’ll know. I’ll know…
And unfold…maybe break the mold…with love.
Track Name: Dream of the Day
Raise up your voices. Say what’s on your mind.
Straighten out your courses, before you’re out of time.
It won’t be long till we’re back at home.
Dry your weeping eyes.

Dream of the days we walk hand in hand through the World we long, long to have.

Wait, stay, don’t wander away.
I’ll raise up my voice, and fill love in the void.
Track Name: The Hunger
Summer is slowly fading, but the heat is under my skin.
My status is pending. In the end, will I win?

Because I still got the hunger. Is that enough for them?
And I ain’t getting any younger. Am I enough for them?

Is this all for nothing? Will I do something you’ll never forget?
I’m working hard for the prize, though it’s just a glint in my eyes…
My future is set on my best.

Because I still got the hunger. Is that enough for them?
And I ain’t getting any younger. Is this enough for them?

At times it’s no matter if there’s a bed. The act I dread is when I lay my head.
I close my eyes, the walls close in. Deep in water up to my chin.
The best of me it just can’t get, but on my chest this pressure it just won’t let-
Up, up, up and away in this dream I’d soar.
But in reality there must be an open door.
Still got the hunger. Don’t let go the hunger.
Still got the hunger. Don’t let go your hunger.
