Sweat You out

 

I get bothered when my mind won't quiet 

or I'm scared to say it unprepared to try it

but I can't comply this time I won't be bothered with you

I get down for all the ones who wake up 

with an empty space that a dream could take up 

but I can't comply this time I won't be bothered with you

 

With my friends and to a party or alone don't need nobody

I went out to shake my body Until I sweat you all out of me

all out of me

 

making room for all the things I want to 

and I use my broom to clean the mess confront it

so I can move closer to the place I've been longing to

laying low cause the cold had caught me

in a slower mode but a good friend taught me 

that it might be time to go and try out something that's new

 

with my friends and to a party or alone don't need nobody 

I went out to shake my body until I sweat you all out of me

all out of me

 

I was more than tired I was needing the space

I was near expired I was done with the chase

I was born and wired to go at my own pace 

so i go 

 

with my friends and to a party or alone don't need nobody 

I went out to shake my body until I sweat you all out of me

all out of me

Entertain a lady

 

doing everything you can to get up closer to me

you don’t want buy a ticket you just want for free

on the important side of the velvet rope is where you want to be

you’re a VIP 

 

you get in easy it was breezy and you think it should be

cause that is how it’s always been so that is all you can see 

 but it will not be with me

 

gotta then put your mind to it 

gotta then put your time to it 

find where you’ve been blind to it 

drive to it dive to it

 

you can want me baby 

until it makes you crazy 

do you know the ways to 

entertain a lady 

 

you want to get to know me said you want to go deep

but you never want to show me all the secrets you keep 

i’m only  mirroring what you’re putting in and that’s all you’ll get from me 

yes you sow what you reap 

 

the good thing is that could see potential in you

but the problem is it doesn’t take too long to see through 

what you say’s not what you do 

 

better than shouting proud do it 

better then show me loud prove it  

 

when a man really wants he’ll show me

take time cause he wants to know me 

but if you can’t see me cause you’re wrapped in yourself 

well baby then i’m gonna look somewhere else 

 

throwing in the towel

 

you called and said please let me said you’d love to come and get me

and I told you I was busy but you felt that I was shifty and torn 

so I left the pile down on the hard ground

and I cut a little time out for a good thing to be born 

I felt something rise from me

when you put your eyes on me 

so we took a quick stroll on a paved road but it didn’t last though cause some of our tires were tired and old 

I thought it was good I was hoping 

I thought we were going to open

 

but we’re throwing in the towel again 

we’re throwing our hands up 

 

I've been hanging in the question 

I’ve been honing my expression and I think part of the lesson was to be okay with living alone 

so I walked off the wheel and I stood still and I let a lot of things that I really didn’t want to feel be known 

I thought it was good I was hoping

I thought we were going to open

 

but we’re throwing in the towel again

throwing our hands up 

 

I don’t want to feel it you don’t want to feel it 

I know it was different for me and

I'm sure it was different for you

I think maybe we were supposed to keep pushing through

shake

 

when I kept a quiet eye on you

world inside your world came shining through

I’m at the outer rim and watching your storm

I quit I sit to feel it take form

I want to tell you how your presence has been just pulling me in

 

you make me want to shake shake shake

loose from the ties of what I went through

and make make make

room in my life for someone like you

 

I'm a leader but I'd follow you

left to right at night and daytime too

you made your way to the margins of town

you took a trail that no one has found

you flip my frown when I’ve been nothing but down

just from coming around

 

 

working for the weekend

 

a leak in July heat 

that cooled down Tennessee 

that got me off my feet 

and got you out with me

 

and the streets full of people going hard extreme

liquor lets you forget when it hits your blood stream

do and don’t feel ready 

accolades upstream 

you’re holding steady but you’re building steam

 

swallowing a take for the team

hollowing American dreams

working for the weekend 

 

you know when ghosts come near 

they come then disappear

they leave you souvenirs 

made out of smoke and mirrors

 

and the streets full of people going hard extreme

liquor lets you forget when it hits your blood stream

do and don’t feel ready 

accolades upstream 

you’re holding steady but you’re building steam

 

following invisible leads 

swallowing American dreams

working for the weekend 

 

and the verdicts out

it confirmed my doubt

and the lies get loud

as you’re facing proud

towards a fading crowd

deckstack

 

it is mostly my head that’s been bothering me

didn’t get out of bed and would not let you see

 

I'm sensing I’m there this is where we could meet

now I sit in this place

an empty space  

listen for sounds of the ground and your feet

 

wait in the thick of the line trying to see in the dark

 

new beginnings and never look back

can not win cause the deck has been stacked  

against us

 

what to toss

what to tie to me and keep for the ride

what is yours isn't mine

just little lies that dim my shine

 

wait in the thick of the line trying to see in the dark

 

Tread on a track that’s as thin as a tac with a weight on my back and a sign that says lacking is

all we’ll be having and i’ll just keep mapping my route

 

thank you fuck you

 

I’m at the top of my game never felt it this way 

no thing could buy what this feels like 

 

no more bouncing the blame shuffling in shame 

and it changed when I let what’s done die

 

thank you for what we went through

and fuck you for some things too

 

I’m Done with You 

 

felt a stab in my back it made me lose track 

until I found truth in a lie

 

hateful words that you use they’ll mostly hurt you 

from your insides they’ll eat you alive

 

from transparent to opaque 

and then from an ocean to a lake

yellow sunset to a winter storm 

I know who you look out for 

 

thank you for what we went through

and fuck you for some things too

 

Done with You

what we got

 

I could hear you with my hands


I could feel you with my eyes


and I would mirror your commands


pull the laughter from your cries


baby come come come after your done

and the sun sinks slow and we really don't say a lot

seems that we know when a feeling can't be fought

gonna let it unfold cause it's so good what we got

won't you let me place my love


below in the center and above


the things you're not proud of


Oh if you knew half the words left unspoken oh if you knew

over the moon

 

I’m a shifter running chasing shadows that still follow me 

and painting them in purple white and green

and your whispers come in and it thunders outside 

and I can not make out all the words you say but try

 

think you were saying that it’s good to move slow

think I’ll be staying just to feel it unfold 

I’m floating over the moon for you 

floating over the moon for you

 

are you alive if you’re living like you’re already dead

your walls are building walls you build them tall 

and you have never really said 

never really bled

 

I can not have it without letting it go

this will not pass not without letting you know

I’m floating over the moon for you

floating over the moon for you

 

stop start together apart running away from you 

stop start together apart making my way to you

the other side

 

half way in and then you ran again

when you looked behind you saw that I had been

still chasing you down you were alley bound

and when I started gaining ground

you stopped and let me hang around

then left again could not believe you’d found

 

someone to love you when your sun don’t shine

 love you in your mixed up mind

tangled in your undone times

feeling far from fine

 

I dig it that the nature of our thing is change 

 people think the way we roll is really strange 

your rage could turn a town to smoke

suck the air from the room with the words you spoke

you silence seas with the looks you throw

you were drowning in doubt didn’t know

 

someone could love you when you cross the line

love you when you act unkind 

fiercely cause you’re still so fine

in your troubled times

 

growing older sharing shoulders 

thats what I want for you and I

guardian of the globe 

 

guardian of the globe

I woke up here 

forgot from where I came

it’s all unclear 

 

what color is your robe

and does it keep 

you covered in the cold

while tall trees sleep 

 

war is all the rage in pages now

for ages it is all we’ve heard about 

I just want out

 

are you a pissed off probe 

that feeds from fear 

 are you in cows and boats 

are you in tears

 

are you a homophobe 

or do you see

the beauty in all things 

like me

 

CH

 

your hope is a rope I found 

 

guardian of the globe I’m waiting here

I want your mouth next to my ear
