Track Name: Fool
(Verse 1)
I don't know what to tell you
You've been gone too long
And I can't sit here waiting for you
When you coming home?
And baby you know, i never did you wrong
And I would give it all, to hold you in my arms
One more time, the way it used to be
When you were good to me, you're making me believe
(Chorus)
I was a fool
A fool for loving you
I was a fool
You left me high and dry, ain't even say goodbye
(Verse 2)
Feels like it's been forever
Since we really tried
I wonder over and over again
Were you ever mine?
And baby you know, I made you comfortable
This was where you belonged, I swear my word is bond
But it's not, the way it used to be
When you were good to me, before you changed on me
(Chorus)
(Bridge)
How could you not see what you're doing to me? x3
How could you...
(Verse 3)
I've been smoking the herb and sipping the bourbon 'cause I've been working hard
And I think I deserve it 'cause I've been hurting, it's better than turning hard
Shit, I'm doing all three, airing out my dirty laundry
Think they've been getting to know me, since they heard that Word Is Bond beat
Let me calmly explain
You're treating this like it's a game, I kindly ask you to refrain
I ain't gon' beg you to stay, you ain't done me any favors, coming around
You ain't a hero and I ain't a clown
I ain't trying to tell you nothing profound
Girl since I lost you, love's what I've found
(Chorus x2)
(Bridge)
Track Name: Ready
(Verse 1)
You were so patient
And I kept you waiting
I created this distance, 'cause it's just so hard for me
To let someone inside me
I've spent so long in hiding
I'd be lying if I said that I can do this alone
And I can't stop thinking of you
(Pre chorus)
Telling myself not to trust you
But it's been hard when I love you
Don't want to show you I love you
You say you know you're not the one
But is that how you feel when I hold you?
I don't give a damn what I told you
You know any time I'm here for you
(Chorus)
'Bout time that I'm ready for you
Are you ready for me?
I've finally opened my heart and opened my arms to thank you for waiting for me
And I'm ready for you
Are you ready for me?
I never knew all I had to do was open my heart up to you
(Verse 2)
You were so patient
And I kept you waiting
My indecision, it isn't from anything that you have done
I had to protect myself
Tell you that I've never felt
The feelings you feel, for real
They just keep coming and going and coming when I'm thinking of you
(Pre chorus)
(Chorus)
(Bridge)
I want you to see that I mean
Only the best for you
But all that I carry has gotten so heavy
I don't want to put it on you
(Chorus)
Track Name: Beautiful Prison
(Verse 1)
I just want to be free
Of all obligations, preconceived notions, unreal expectations
I need to get this weight off of me
I just want to be me
Unapologetically, despite what they expect from me, I can't let it get to me
But I know the change starts with me
(Chorus x2)
Me, myself and I
A perfect paradise
Dreaming of a ribbon in the sky
or is this a vision in my mind?
(Verse 2)
Where you keep all of the benefits with none of the residuals
Nothing's so serious and nothing's taken literal
Words come easy, there's no trouble getting in the zone
And I'm in the zone, so here's my song:
I'm leaving on my spaceship
I need some isolation
I'm looking for a place where there's no limitations and there's no imitations
I know just who I am and I don't feel the need to say it
'Cause there's no one to prove it to
I'm feeling so beautiful
'Cause there's no one to prove it to
I'm feeling so beautiful
and I'm free to be me
No explanations
I'm tired of trying to chase it, it's taking more than patience
You gotta make it happen but you cannot force it
Goddamn I wish I could understand all the forces at hand
So therapeutic
It's right here, I'm just praying I don't lose it
That blind fear will be the reason that I do
but at the end of the day, it's just music
Nah, it's so much more
And it stresses me out, and I don't know what for
'Cause I love it so much, I feel it's all that I know
It's the only thing I have to free my soul
and I know, I'm done with getting by
I'm tired of getting high
Searching for what's impossible to find, 'cause it's here
I'm just imprisoned in my mind
(Chorus x2)
(Outro)
I know not what I say
Today's not yesterday
I know the leaves are green
Track Name: Not What I Want
Baby I can't be with you
(Verse 1)
I know, we've been through this before
There's no need to disclose, just keep it on the low
And I know, it seems that we were meant to be
But we can never be, if you do this to me
(Pre chorus)
I have no obligations on my own
and I like it like that
I have a reputation to uphold
You gotta see from my point of view
When I know that I won't fall in love with you
(Chorus)
It's not what I want
That's all that I know to be true
I've been thinking of me but I'm lying and saying I'm thinking of you
It's not what I want
That's all that I know to be true
Baby I can't be with you
(Verse 2)
I feel, like this just isn't real
No kisses for no seals
Girl you know the deal
And I won't, I won't say
that it'll be ok
I can't show you the way, 'cause I'm not here to stay
(Pre chorus)
(Chorus)
-Instrumental break-
(Chorus)
