Never had a chance Had to step to it Seen it in the eyes Now tryin’ not to lose it Grabbed her by the waist Moved to outter space Fuckin’ with the bass Got me on another chase I keep poppin at the dip one Lookin’ at the hip bone Movin’ to the flip tone Spinnin’ out my lip zone I see the light creepin’ through the window We buggin’ all night But I do not slow the tempo Strictly off the mental I never use a stencil Inspired by the things that we’ve been through So thankful that I’ve been through Every crevice that you tend to That’s how it gets you She’s so hot I put her on top She retox the beatbox I told her don’t stop Keep on movin’ Around the clock Tryin’ to see where her heads at I hope she don’t block The passes that I make The masses that I activate Let’s keep it simple Sunglasses cityscapes As we walk in the mornin’ The talk is never boring I hope to see her again Some place that’s a sure thing

It’s been so cold without you here And now that you’ve come back Look what we’ve found here Look what we’ve found right here You’re so full of many talents So perfectly on balance That’s why we always love you You know we’ve gotta have you No stress, no mess L.O.V.E.Y.O.U. X4 If you don’t know You just can’t fall somewhere Bustin’ round town Runnin’ around down town Without a care in the world That’s why we always love you You know we’ve gotta have you No stress, no mess L.O.V.E.Y.O.U.

All mine (all fine) All seen all yes All fresh X3 Push your way to the maximum Stop asking em Where you got the shine from? Distribute vivid lights Source to mic chords Provide the hype for Soul the night’s clause Keep the flow Shakin’ the nights floors Bitches and hounds Keep they sights crossed Yeah don’t stop Move to the stee While those in the back Hold on to debris Break walls that separate us Get down to the things that we bust Open envelope minds To the things that we trust Change face in the dark in a rush To avoid those that are import in a crush Moving to light that a hardly don’t touch As we look to the skies and the wind Generate life from just a pen Don’t know how to do it At it again Just been doin’ it At it again All mine (all fine) All seen all yes All fresh X3 Push your way to the maximum Stop asking em Where you got the shine from? Make fun profile With a bottle of fire Segue ways through a while to desire Destination location Arrival Kris Survival Right to the point of hurrival A pure source of energy Replenish me Back to an authorized vicinity Lost identities Roam throughout plentifully The memory vortex for more sex Cash and admission that fits the big spend All mine (all fine) All seen all yes All fresh Push your way to the maximum Stop asking em Where you got the shine from? X3

All the possibilities of what They could’ve be in store for us But now we’ve gone and thrown it all away Without a reason this would not occur I’m not saying people can’t defer But what about the promises that once were made Fraudulant activities Actively deceiving me Was this really meant to be Cuz I don’t know X2 Contemplating the possibilities of love The possibilities of love The possibilities of love X2 Go on tell me you aint feeling bad The memories of all the love we had The reason I believe today you always call I can change my cell phone Put a stop to all your calls Pretend I don’t know you at all The thought is letting me know Fraudulant activities Actively deceiving me Was this really meant to be Cuz I don’t know Contemplating the possibilities of love The possibilities of love The possibilities of love X2 It’s already been written So I’m about to review Cuz you aint doin’ nothing good Nothin’ That’s why I’m contemplating Contemplating the possibilities of love The possibilities of love The possibilities of love X2 And you know it babe Contemplating You can wait You can wait Reflections in the mind Contemplating the possibilities of love The possibilities of love The possibilities of love X2 You can wait You can wait on me You’ve been deceiving me You can wait Contemplating the possibilities of love The possibilities of love The possibilities of love X2

Wasn’t really worth my time I know I wasn’t thinking right I should’ve just followed my mind X2 Sometimes we do the silliest things Look back, then laugh, then pray It never occurs in life again I beg to differ if you should dare say You’ve never made a mistake Approached it a second Then do it again I did it You know I aint ashamed No no Nothing else because it X2 Wasn’t really worth my time I know I wasn’t thinking right I should’ve just followed my mind X2 My heart from the start would never have lied My husband to be has been fooling out of town I swear that I’ve know for a while Instead I’ve been trying to salvage my crown I’ve been here before so I should be well ground But I know that I’m falling apart Should’ve just left this thing Right from the start I did it You know I aint ashamed No no Nothing else because it X2 Wasn’t really worth my time I know I wasn’t thinking right I should’ve just followed my mind X2 My heart from the start would never have lied Wasn’t really worth my time I know I wasn’t thinking right I should’ve just followed my mind X2 My heart from the start would never have lied Wasn’t really worth my time I know I wasn’t thinking right I should’ve just followed my mind X8

If You Wanna 03:39
When I started this it weren’t a verse In most of my tracks I want to curse And be angry with the world This one is different This one is me trying to explain to yall When I was younger in my days I was so deterred I wouldn’t listen So wrapped up in my own way That’s how It all began That’s just exactly how you flog yourself That’s how the shit went down Dedication start with Jay I love you dearly You’re my big sister The best God ever made Without you I’d probably be dead Without you I’d probably be a mental case If you wanna be somebody Your dreams can come true You focus on the things that help All of us through your lifetime So you got a dream, some kind of plan Put into practice, make it happen Don’t worry about the next man That’s how you’re gonna make it That’s how you’re gonna make yourself feel proud Then you can scream it out Sometimes it’s hard, sometimes it’s not Sometimes it’s cold and lonely Don’t let darkness take hold of your spine Leaving you in the worst way Leaving you to deal with it If you wanna be somebody Your dreams can come true You focus on the things that help All of us through your lifetime
