HEARTBREAKER

Well I met you on a Monday

Came to my show on Wednesday

Told me loved me on Saturday

But by Sunday morning had the biggest regret

Because you're bat shit crazy

And I know I'm crazy too

But at least I can admit 

When I lose my shit

But not like you

Well you ruined my favorite spot

Can't drive by the coffee shop

Can't take the 101

Without thinking about you

I thought you were the one but

Why'd you have to break my heart

Should have told me from the start

You should have left me alone

Now I'm lonely, low

See I drove all around town for you

But you just let me down down don't ya

Now you're telling me that I'm the one to blame

But you're a dumb motherfucker, it's such a shame

So I took your shit and put it in a box

And I buried it deep in the ground

And I have to admit I hate to say it

Sometimes I wish you were still around

CHORUS 

YOUR MAN

I cross the road at 6am

Do what I'm told but I don't give a damn

I bet your man, he won't do it like me

 

I've been to Rome and London too

I've touched the sky and I've kissed the moon

But I bet your man, he won't do it like me

 

My paradise, is unturned stone

You know I'm right, even when I'm wrong

I've heard your stories but it won't be too long

Because I bet your man, he won't do it like me

 

Like Hollywood where the palm trees grow

I bet you would, and he won't even know

I bet your man, he won't touch you like me

 

This sound advice, like a whisper too

I know your man treats you like a fool

Yes he do, and you know he does too

 

My paradise, is unturned stone

You know I'm right, even when I'm wrong

I've heard your stories but it won't be too long

Because I bet your man, he won't do it like me

GAMES

I should be by myself
Cuz I'm just that kind of guy
I can't satisfy no one else
No matter how hard I try
Though I lie here wide awake
Wondering why, why, why
Did I just make this mistake
Again this time
Oh this time

Well I'd cook for ya baby I'd feed your soul
Grab my guitar, play some rock & roll
Pray for ya baby, give ya peace of mind
Wait for ya baby, got nothing but time
I'd fight for ya baby, keep it in the streets
Just stay cool from your head to your feet
Well I've said it before and I'll say it again
I don't play games

You should be by yourself
Cuz your just that kind of girl
Can't satisfy no one else
In this whole itty bitty world
Though you lie here wide awake
Wondering why, why, why
Did he just make a mistake
Again this time
This time

I can't be by myself
Cuz I'm just that kind of guy
I can't satisfy no one else
No matter how hard I try
Though I lie here wide awake
Wondering why, why, why
Did I just make this mistake
Again this time
Yeah

GAMES (Version Francaise)

Je devrais te laisser partir
Je suis juste ce genre de gars
Je te donne pas ce que tu veux
n'importe quoi, ça ne marche pas
 
Je reste couché les yeux ouverts
y a rien à dire, y a rien a faire
et tout ce qu'on fait, c'est de travers
encore une fois, c'est un mystère
C'est un mystère
 
Well I cook for you baby I feed your soul
Grab my guitar and play some rock&roll
pray for you baby give you peace of mind
wait for you baby, got nothing but time
I fight for you baby, keep it in the street
just stay cool from your head to your feet
Encore une fois, je te le dis quand même
I don't play game
 
Tu devrais être toute seule
parce que je suis pas ton genre de gars
je te donne pas toujours ce que tu veux
n'importe quoi, ça ne marche pas
 
Tu reste couchée tes yeux ouverts
t'a rien à dire, y a rien a faire
et tout ce qu'on fait, c'est de travers
Encore une fois, c'est un mystère
y a rien à faire
 
Moi je ne peux pas être tout seul
je suis juste ce genre de gars
je te donne jamais ce que tu veux
n'importe quoi, ça ne marche pas
 
On reste couchés les yeux ouverts
y a rien à dire, on sait quoi faire
et tout ce qu'on fait, c'est de travers
encore une fois, un mystère
 

HIDE

I've burnt every bridge
Crossed every line
Did what I thought I should
Just to see the other side
Now I'm counting down the days
'Til my freedom comes
I'm stuck in my own way
Still I think I need to run

Well the rebel inside me
Sings a song of no surprise
Searches for the truth
Telling tales and telling lies
I can't escape this fate
So I step into the wild
Better open those gates
Because I've got nothing more to 
Hide

Well I've delayed my own life
For a matter of time
And it comes as no surprise
I'm too tired to fight
Well I've burnt every bridge
And I've crossed every line
Did what I thought I should
Just to see the other side

Well I've seen my fate
more clearly now
And I won't compromise 
And I won't back down
Now I sit here just
Wondering how
To take back my life
From the underground

I won't hide

 

AGAIN

When I was by your side
I could not hold you down
I'd satisfy my basic instinct
Find myself in the crowd

I could not figure you out
Even though I tried
I was scared to let you down

I held on to the gut feeling in my soul
Hang on for dear life before I lose control
I could count all the times I broke down a prayed
I hang on to the feelings I had inside
Stood my ground when I knew I was right
I could count all the times I broke down in shame
Again, again, again

I could not change my fate
Swallowed all my pride
Break down this beast of burden
Each and every time
I could not figure you out
Even though I tried
I was scared to let you down

I held on to the gut feeling in my soul
Hang on for dear life before I lose control
I could count all the times I broke down a prayed
I hang on to the feelings I had inside
Stood my ground when I knew I was right
I could count all the times I broke down in shame
Again, again, again

Cross my heart and hope to die
Bet you told a love lie a thousand times

LONG ROAD

I kept pushing you away
Because I had nothing to say
Life has no guarantees but we try we try
I'd like to spend with you, each day of my life

I held you close and built a fire
Just you and me, some red wine and a tuesday night
Life has no guarantees but we try we try
I'd like to spend with you, each day of my life

So walk to me 
Wear your white dress
We'll take our time
And we'll do our best
Don't let me down
I won't let you go
Just walk with me
Down this long road

Your mama started to cry
And your daddy let go of your hand for the first time
Well the preacher said will you take and will I take you
Looking in your eyes
I knew it was the truth

So walk to me 
Wear your white dress
We'll take our time
And we'll do our best
Don't let me down
I won't let you go
Just walk with me
Down this long road

I won't let you down
I won't let you go
I won't let you down

 

16887

I grew up 16887
Where I used to reside from the story I’ll be telling
Was a straight C student all of my life
Had to wake up and to see the light
 
I busy trying to pay all my bills
But I had mama to make all my meals
So now an insatiable appetite for life
Turn back on the dark and I choose life
 
Picked up the pen and I put down the knife
I’ve done some wrong but I can do some right
 
Nobody could believe that I could sing
And it’s just an intro thing
This here is music for queens and kings
Listen how I rock
Preachers do your thing
 
 
 

OH I

Oh I would reach the sun and moon for you
Oh I would never ever be untrue
Oh I would break my back for you
Oh I would whisper to the skies above
Oh I would give you nothing but all my love
Oh I even my soul wouldn’t be enough
 
But I I couldn’t see what the world gave to me
When I gave it away well I curse the day
Well I hope and pray to see you again someday
Oh I , oh I, ha ha I, oh i
 
Oh I run up all my credit too
Oh I would go broke, baby broke for you
Oh I spend all my money on you
Oh I ever treasure that I could not see
Oh I would swim across that deep blue sea
Oh I’m asking you to hold onto me

Every promise that I made you I stand by
I apologize for times that you might cry
I envision a life together you and i
But baby don’t ask why, don’t ask why
 

VISIONS

I don’t care
About your promises your paper dreams
That wont scare me away I don’t live to please
 
We’ve come this far
We can’t go back now it’s been too long
Freedom rings
Early it’s morning and I hear her song
 
Can you hear it
Do you hear it

I wake up each and every single night in my dreams
Delicious wine, fumes of terpentine and it seems
My disease, oh it controls me, consoles
Visions of victory
 
Your kingdom fails
With the words and the wishes of
Silence beams upon the boys and girls who live to see
We’ve come this far
We can’t go back now it’s been too long
Freedom rings
Early it’s morning and I hear her song
 
Can you hear it
Lord do you feel it
 
Stereotype of a misunderstood
Sticking to my plan like I know that I should
Doing good, oh doing good
Trying to start a fire with two pieces of wood
Break me down into itty bitty pieces
Used to believe I was nothing but feaces
So I hear the sound of a skinny little preacher
Respect your father and listen to your teacher
So he’s trying to teach us, trying to reach
Be it Allah, Jehovah or Jesus
Turn off your phone and turn off your light because
It’s a battle of the demon type
And in my dreams these demons fight
Too many scared of the bark and not the bite
Is it appealing to be without reason
I hear the sound of your pig still sqeeling
So you be the princess, I’m the popper
In my three piece suit I’m still not proper
Your looking, searching for some direction
Round and round but you don’t pay attention
I’m the stereotype of a misunderstood
Sticking to my plan like I know that I should
Doing good, oh doing good
 

I JUST WANT LOVE

It’s a full moon
I feel I’ve been used
Of what I’m unaware
Want to give up everything
For you
But I still want to sing
Prayers are all I really have
 
My progression is the same
So many fingers point to blame
I want to share my name with you
I could stare at your face
But it never looks the same
A fork in the road

Oh I just want love
Before I go
 
Freedom don’t waste my time
I’m tied down the same
Passing through memories
Good and bad
Second chances
Are they really there
For me to take
I’m stealing breath
Because I feel it makes me live
From this far away
I have nothing else to give
 
I would come for you
If you want me to
I would come for you in time
I will return

BALLAD OF INDECISION

Unequivcated educated for twenty years
But all the schools and the books could not save him from his fears
Faith on his arm he wondered when he would get his chance
But everything we desire is within our grasp
I sift through rubble and trouble only to find my dreams
Lost for so long in a zone where I did not believe
Contemplated, hesitated just what I could achieve
But it all changed when I decided to let my pain free


 

COME TOGETHER

I don’t wanna hear I don’t , I wanna hear I will
I don’t wanna hear I won’t, I wanna hear I will
I don’t wanna hear I should, I don't wanna hear I could
Don't wanna hear I won't, I wanna hear I can
 
Yeah, we gotta come together
 
Don’t want separation, we’re all feeling agrivation
And we got anticipation, you could feel it all around the nation

When you get that feeling in your soul, gotta let that spirit out
Get feeling in your soul, when you get that feeling in your soul
 
 

My Life Story

I hear the baby crying
waiting for the bottle to come
I heard the Lord say
Your battle has just begun
I hear my Daddy saying
Life is worth the fight
And we hear Marley saying
Everything will be alright

I'm telling my life story
I'm telling the truth

I hear the freedom bells
Singing on sunday morn'
But I played the jukebox
Pretty late the night before
I talk a good game
About the way I need to live
But I'll probably end up
With a picket fence and a couple of kids

Go ahead and cry
Everything will be alright
Go ahead and cry
It'll feel so good
So good so good
Go ahead and cry
Everything will be alright
And at the end of the night
It'll be alright

JUST ONE LIFE

Say goodbye
Hold your breath 
Take what he gave to you
And take care of yourself

Keep it in
Just stay up
You know this life's got nothing to do
To do with luck

Seven mouths to feed by just one life
Hold it in, hold on tight
Push on emotion with all your might
So much at stake, so many blessed but just one life

Take your time
Just breath deep
Accept the change with all the secrets that you keep
Blessed with most
A strong will
This solitude is more than any man can bear

Keep on holding on

JUST LIKE THIS

Careless and free
She is so fine
Radiant smile
Beautiful mind

You were at the party
Your body was moving slowly to Prince
Caught me engaged so
You decided you would blow me a kiss
It was raging, fingers snapping
My hands all over the place
My heart was singing a song
It sounded 

Just like this
Sounded just like this

Every set of eyes in the room was fixated on you
Held your composure like you were sitting in a church pew
Smoke in the air, you just don't care
Unaware
Your melody of confidence
Sounded

Just like this

You were at the party
Your body was moving slowly to Prince
In your Versace and blue denim
You would blow me a kiss
It was crazy how it happened
Hands all over the place
My heart was singing a song
It sounded 

Deep in the night
Of full moonlight
Rapture so fine
Like a red red wine
 

ONE MORE DAY

For all the times
And all the heartache
I never meant to hurt you
Never let me down

With all I gave
And all I sacrificed
There's nothing left to long for
But something here ain't right

Now I stand here on my battlefield
And pray for a second chance

I'd give up everything
To have just one more day
And any price I'd pay
To see your face again
I'd never give up hope
I'd stand here all alone
But I'd give up everything
To have just one more day

With all my pride
And all my circumstance
I never meant to hurt you
To kill the love inside
With everyday that passes
The hours seem to fade
My longing won't surpass me
Can't let it slip away

Now I stand here on my battlefield
And pray for a second chance

I'd give up everything
To have just one more day
And any price I'd pay
To see your face again
I'd never give up hope
I'd stand here all alone
But I'd give up everything
To have just one more day

If I
If I could turn back time
I'd make it right
To live my life again
If I
If I could change my past
I'd make it last
But I can't 



 

FOOLED

I don’t want to play the victim
Can’t even convince myself of that anymore
I’m held up in your prison
You said you waited at my front door
You waited at my front door
 
Finally I’ve opened up my eyes

Why do I give my trust away
Who am I to blame it all on you
But yet I do
Why do I give my trust away
Who am I to blame it all on you
But yet I do
Because I was fooled
 
Time and time again
I thought I had found a friend
But someone let’s me down
You said you’d be around
What happened to you’d be around
 
Finally I’ve opened up my eyes
 

PERFECT FIT

I keep trying to make this work
But girl I’m starting to get irked
The pen through which I bleed
Constantly consoles me
Well your flattery’s beneath me not
But it doesn’t do the trick
The chemistry cannot be bought
We can both admit

You’re preaching to the choir (baby I can feel your pain)
You’ve made me your desire (maybe I’ve become your game)
Your stone has been unturned (the feelings from which you burn)
But it’s not a perfect fit
 
Girl I’m stuck between
What I’m looking for and what I’ve seen
We’ve ran for miles let’s catch our breath
We’re well prepared on making plans
But your flattery’s beneath me not
But it doesn’t do the trick
The chemistry cannot be bought
We can both admit
 

I COULD BE

You
always know just what I need
always know just how to look at me
oh when you look at me

'Cause I, I could be your lover your other your undercover
and your mother don't need to discover, discover no nothing
discover I
I could be your show, your good to go, take it slow
your remote control, oh

You
get right up under my skin
and you, I do not know where to begin
but I know, where it where it ends

I just want to let you know
and i just want to let you know
I just want to let you know
That I, that I

I could your man, your friend your confident
your beginning your end your sin your win
your everything
your everything your start again, nine on ten
you're everything to me

PAIN FREE

What’s it going to take, to realize my mistakes
Selfish from day to day, just trying to stay in the race
Strangers giving me stress, trying hard to impress
Tired from all the games, western society plays

I’m tired of drinking and smoking and doing what I’m not supposed to
It just leaves me dry inside, inside
I’d like to know why, that light in me die
And when and where did my sentence begin

Let your pain free, Let your pain free


So I depend on my friends, and pray for a happy ending
Rush through my prayers, closed to pulling out my hair
People want what they want, and they want it for free
God’s getting prayers, but the churches are empty
Feel something let it through, got to let it in and grab you
The sooner you grieve, the sooner you let your pain free


The beat is perfect, the lyric I birthed it, I’m self exposed but you know that it’s worth it
You better let your pain free, before you’re riding in a hurse, now listen to my verse
Well it started back in high school, dreamt of record deal
Talent show, standing O, too good to be real
Haters trying to put me down, put me down to the ground,
My skin was white, but vocals were tight
I got to college and I couldn’t read a note, by that time you know I started to joke
Got into zeppelin, CCR and black Sabbath, teacher didn’t say that I was good she said I had it
Now when you wake up in the morning keep your head up,
And like Moe say go and get your bread up
It’s just a day to day struggle to survive, you’ve got to keep your head to the sky


I CAN SEE IT IN YOUR EYES

I need to be guided
In the souls of my feet
I’m often bright eyed and
I've got no release
Kept up in this box
'Cause I need to break free
I'm not doing the things, not seeing the things
That I want to see
I’ve seen pressure and pain
Seems its comfort to me
And you’ve been dealing with things
That ain't so obvious to me
you’ve been cooped up inside
I can see it in your eyes

I can see it in your eyes, eyes, eyes, eyes, eyes

You’ve been hurt before
But you won’t let that on
You’ve been missing something
And it’s been lost for so long
Deprived and hypnotized
That love wasn’t meant for you
But I’m here to say
I can see that you want it

So long, you’ve been waiting to see
Been so long you needed redemption
It’s been so long, you’ve been waiting to see
Been so long, you’ve needed redemption

KING

Remember that blue bike
You built with your two hands
All those summer nights 
bat and glove in my hand
Your old guitar case
Anything you'd give to me
What's yours was mine and you did
everything you could for me
For me

You were my King
You were her sunshine
You were my world and my reason, my freedom
In love and war, oh it's such a thing
But you were my King

Remember that Christmas
Face to face we made peace
Round and round we go
Trying to break, break free
That old guitar case
Anything you'd give to me
What's yours is mine and you did
Anything you could for me
Oh I can feel it


You were my King
You were her sunshine
You were my world and my reason, my freedom
In love and war, oh it's such a thing
But you were my King

Now all these restless thoughts in my head
Waiting on her day to be wed
And now a Queen sleeps in her queen bed
Missing her King

Hey You

You're beautiful
Did someone already give you that line before
Well baby girl I could write a song for you
I'd compose something like you had never heard before
I'll tell you this for sure

I like your style and the way that you dress
You're composure, you inspire happiness

Hey You
I really wanna see that body
Hey you
I got something in mind
Hey You
I really wanna see that body
Hey You
Come on give me a try

You're that bit of sun
coming through the blinds
Heavy on my mind
Like all the time
I'll tell you something else
What a hand you've been dealt 
Baby you're so blessed
You're so blessed

FALL IN LOVE AGAIN

It's been forever
Since I've felt your love
And it's been
Such a good long while
But you, you never wavered 
And it all comes down to this

I want to hold you
'Til the end of time
I want to kiss your lips
When it felt like this
I want to hold you
And remember why
Why we fell so hard
I want to fall in love again

I've given you
A million reasons 
To let go my friend
Oh to start again
And you, you've cried a million times
But now tears of joy
Like we knew before
But it all comes down to this

I want to hold you
'Til the end of time
I want to kiss your lips
When it felt like this
I want to hold you
And remember why
Why we fell so hard
I want to fall in love again

Too many times we've let go
We've let go
Never to fall again
And too many days have gone by
To remember, remember

 

WOKE UP (INTERLUDE)

Woke up
After five hours of sleep
And I'm feeling them things
I'm feeling them things

Another day
Another dollar they say
And I'm feeling them things
I'm feeling them things

Rest assured
This is true
My heart is broken
And the nightmare's come true

I had visions of this time
Broken but not blind
But I'm feeling them things
Again

STOP PRETENDING

It’s been a long time you’ve been on my mind, I had given up
This feeling’s familiar my love’s gone bitter so abrupt
It seems it’s past some days and got me amazed that I forgot you
And not to torture myself I regain my health, I catch myself before I fall
           
It’s 4 am, and I lie back, waiting dreams
Shuffle on repeat, sit back in my seat, a moment’s peace
All I need is a guarantee, time on my side? Or will I succeed?
I brace myself, regain my mental health, can we just stop pretending
 
Not sure where we stand, would you call me friend, as the days pass me by
I’m scared to invest my happiness, on something that wouldn’t last
It seems its past some days and got me amazed that I forgot you
And not to torture myself I regain my health, I catch myself before I fall

It’s been a long time you’ve been on my mind, I had given up
This feeling’s familiar my love’s gone bitter so abrupt
It seems its past some days and got me amazed that I forgot you
And not to torture myself I regain my health, I catch myself before I fall
 

NO ONE ELSE WILL DO

I would never leave you, I could not deceive you
I will protect you if that’s what you want
I ask for guidance, I pray for some kindness
So you will return if that’s what you want
I’m caught up in my mind seems all of the time
I’d follow you blind if that’s what you want
I’m here by your side for all of my life
I take it as a sign that that’s what you want

I’d give your soul shelter
Unlike any other I could not be bothered
You live without flaw
And if I let you down, I just want you around
I’d make it up to you
No one else will do
 
Met you at the airport
Got there just on time
You and me in your time
I take it as a sign
You were so surprised to
See me there beside you
What a nice surprise you
Said to me more than once
Cigarettes and boarding pass
You and me had a dance
Sang with you beside me
And I met all of your family
Time and fate are even
Evenly unfair
I can’t forget the look when you saw me standing there
 

WOMAN FOR ME

I wouldn’t think that Sunday
Would be a rainy day
Unlike the other days
They just  fade away
Subscribe to me
I can set you free
I can make you happy girl
Happy
 
If you just find some love for me
If you unwind and let things be
If you just want sincerity
Maybe I’m the man for you and you’re the woman for me
 
I wouldn’t think that you’d ignore me
Maybe you’re just too shy to say
Anything at all
Is there something wrong?
With this picture or with me
 

PAPER

Waking up early trying to get myself to work
Trying to make my own paper so I don’t look like a jerk
Put the paper in the piggy bank, save it up and watch your back
It’s all work and no relax
I remember a day when money did not matter to me, it didn’t matter to me
And I remember a time when I looked for a sign, of true happiness, real happiness
But its all about the dollar (when you gonna get it)
And it only causes problems (fed up with it)
This brain from which I pick is getting hungry off of knowledge
Bet you didn’t think I’d be writing this in my days of college
Minimum wage 9 to 5 five days a week
Coming home at 6 too tired to move or speak
But still I thank God that I’m not in the street
I got blue skies fresh air and a plate in front of me

Get me my paper
(Wish it wasn’t this way)
Get me my paper
(To see another day)
Get me my paper
(Need to get paid)
Get me my paper
(This world is turning and yearning for some earnings)
Get me my paper

Oh oh, self destruction, abduction, repossesion hell and heaven oh yes
Addiction we stricken we giving less than we taking money making oh yes
The world we face is not a place where it’s filled with grace but affliction oh yes
Said love your sister brother one another my sarcasm I fathom is not a joke
Trying to do good but kids misunderstood these sleepless nights fuel and feed my fight
Abuse obtuse misuse people can be so rude seems its no use at times

A cloud of hate rains down on us
The only dry seat is at the back of the bus
We got everything we need but trust
With greed disgust and lust
Strangled by strangers of fear
Voices can you, can you hear
Telling me there goes another year

PROVE MYSELF TO YOU

Well I have seen this place before
I have seen and read the words upon your door
Well it’s a mystery to me, how you insist to change the looks but keep the keys
Your sacrifice has come too late
Well you made a choice and you chose to wait
That bell that hangs up on your wall
Well it’s gonna ring baby, one day after all

How many times must I prove myself to you
How many times is it gonna take to see the truth
How many days must I wait
Just to get next to you
How many times must I prove myself to you

Well I have seen your white flag
I have seen and read the words upon your back
And I can tell you’d take the chance
But then you’re reminded of your circumstance

Can you hear my plea
My necessity
Incessantly
Have you chosen me
