Track Name: My Baby
(10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 20
30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 1 up! )

Troubled girl, troubled world
whose problems bring her pain
every time I've got one solved
they come right back again
but i don't stress, that's life i guess
I'm gonna keep doing my thing
and hold on close to the man I love
'Cause I don't know what tomorrow brings
I'm coming home

(Hey)
I'm coming home to you baby, hold it down for me baby
(Hey)
I spend my nights with you baby, all my life with you baby
(Hey)
Because no other man, baby does me quite like you baby
(Hey)
You know I love you baby, come holla at me baby
(Hey)

(and I'm coming home to you, home to you)
that's right
(I'm coming home to you, home to you)

Now you can have them bars, have them clubs
have them dudes and their silly games
don't like no strangers playing me close
and they don't even know my name
misdirection, bad intentions
who can you trust in the end
don't need drama I got peace
so I'ma stay home with my man
said I'm coming home

(Hey)
I'm coming home to you baby, hold it down for me baby
(Hey)
I spend my nights with you baby, all my life with you baby
(Hey)
Because no other man, baby does me quite like you baby
(Hey)
You know I love you baby, come holla at me baby
(Hey)

(and I'm coming home to you, home to you)
that's right
(I'm coming home to you, home to you)

(10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 20
30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 1 up! )
(1 up for my love 'cause i love you baby, one up for my love 'cause i love you boy)

(1 up for my love 'cause i love you baby, one up for my love 'cause i love you boy)

Hey)
I'm coming home to you baby, hold it down for me baby

Track Name: Sing
They say trouble only lasts til morning
til i see it dawning
all i can do is sing, sing

Halfway through my second passport
what i gotta show for it
all I can do is sing sing

try to get a job but nobody hiring
one skill viable
all i can do is sing, sing

Universe telling me to use my voice then
I don't have a choice then
all i can do is sing, sing

So i just sing it like
Yeah

Sometimes it feels like
Don't nobody love a black girl but her momma
grind us down and
all i can do is sing, sing

Bloomberg gone but the rent still rising
say goodbye then
all i can do is sing, sing

Project 'get us up outta here' is working
Brooklyn suburban
all i can do is sing, sing

Mandela gone but Cheney still breathing
who's now leading
all i can do is sing, sing

So i just sing it like
Yeah

Track Name: Something You Said
I should've quit so many years ago
The curtain is closed on this show
I guess familiar really breeds contempt
So many times I ignored what
would have been signs had I known what
what you call "family" really meant

You don't have to be my friend
we don't' ever have to speak again
I'm good with this being the end
Should've done it years ago
Why i didn't I will never know
What we were we could never mend
because of something you said

Something you said
'cause of something you said
Something you said

If I know you, and I do
you're so delusional that you
you feel like you're a victim here
All I ever did was ride for you
push up my sleeves and grind for you
but you didn't care, and you made that clear

You don't have to be my friend
we don't' ever have to speak again
I'm good with this being the end
Talk about me to your sycophants
then laugh about 'em like they're not your friends
but the truth is that we've reached the end
over something you said

Something you said
'cause of something you said
Something you said
Track Name: Brooklyn Blues (feat. Skyzoo)
You're a part of me
Part of everything I am and all i'll ever be
Always thought it'd always be forever you and me
but nowadays it seems
you don't want me, no

Yes i went away
But you knew i was coming back and i'd be here to stay
But when i came you made it clear that it was you who'd changed
you grew and grew away
you don't want me

(You're my home and i don't know where I'm gonna go)
I don't know where I would ever go
(But this new you is someone that i barely know
All I ask of you, is please be good to me

(Baby)
Be good to me
(Baby)
Just be good to me
(Baby)
Be good to me
Please be good to me
(Baby)
Be good to me
(Baby)
Please be good to me
(Baby)
Be good to me, to me

Changed your name
Changed your borders
Built you up
Spit out your daughters
Who are they
These new children that you claim?

(You're my home and i don't know where I'm gonna go)
I don't know where I would ever go
(But this new you is someone that i barely know
All I ask of you.. come on

(Skyzoo) [NOTE: I'm not typing out his lyrics. Good luck with that.]

Changed your name
Changed your borders
Built you up
Spit out your daughters
Who are they
These new children that you claim?
Track Name: Employment
This life
is grinding my will away
It ain't right
i shouldn't have to live this way
I can't breathe
not knowing how to get no pay
doing everything I can
but nothing's panning out for me
oh, i need a job

(oooh, my my my)
oh, I need a job
(oooh, my my my)

I got a headshot
and three different resumes
at a desk, behind a bar
or any part of anybody's stage
and ain't nothin wrong with me, I should be all the rage
but instead here i am
post to pillar on my day to day
oh, i need a job

(oooh, my my my)
oh, I need a job
(oooh, my my my)


I need jobs
i need money
I need money
i need money
come on


(oooh, my my my)
oh, I need a job
(oooh, my my my)
Track Name: Trying Something New
Every since I was a child I always had a dream I could fly
It wasn't hard, all I had to do was try
how did i forget that

As I survey the wreck
and all the mess I've made
my biggest regrets are all the times I was afraid
I didn't take the shot
'cause i thought I would miss
those are times that haunt me
that's no way to live

(Had to risk it all to gain a different point of view)

So now I'm trying something new
(trying something new)
Tell me if you fee it now
(I'm trying something new)
So now Im trying something new
(trying something new)
Tell me if you feel it now
(I'm trying something new)


Ever since I was a child i always had a dream I was free
If the world was a stage at the front of that thing was me
how did I forget that

Ain't nobody's fault
that i lose the race
if i set myself up
to come in second place
dimming my own light
won't keep me from pain
nothing lasts forever
I'm embracing change

(when you risk it all you'll find you'll know a better you)

So now I'm trying something new
(trying something new)
Tell me if you fee it now
(I'm trying something new)
So now Im trying something new
(trying something new)
Tell me if you feel it now
(I'm trying something new)

(Can't stop, can't stop, can't stop)
(Won't stop, Won't stop, Won't stop)

Track Name: Living
I wasted so much time
tryna tow the line
like things would go the way I want
if everything was right
If i just wait my turn
then maybe I would learn
but what I learned is I won't earn
If i don't go for mine

Now I'm not scared, scared of losing
I have lost everything that i can conceive
from now on I'll be choosing
of every horse in the race
my money's on me

I don't know what life's bringing, bringing
All i know is I'm living, living

You do the best you can
you try to make a plan
life intervenes, and so it seems
you're back to start again
you wonder if you can
if you have the strength
I know you do, I swear it's true
If I do, so do you

I'm not scared, scared of losing
I have lost everything I could fantasize
from now on I'll be choosing
as long as I'm my best fan
I am so alive

I don't know what life's bringing, bringing
All i know is I'm living, living

I'm fine
divine
my trials
are guides
repeat 3x


(music break)

I don't know what life's bringing, bringing
All i know is I'm living, living

I don't know what life's bringing, bringing
All i know is I'm living, living

I don't know what life's bringing, bringing
All i know is I'm living, living
