Track Name: At The Window
sometimes i wish i could paint the world black
and lean myself at the window
so i could let you know
you’re the only one i want
and i'm the only one that you should know

i know we’ve got time
and i know we’ll grow old,
but i know who i want;
i know who i want
and i just want you to know too -
you to know too

so i paint the world black
and i lean myself at the window
Track Name: I Can't Love You Anymore
girl i love you to the point that i’m willing
not to ever love you anymore
cause i know that certain things we should never explore,
but i can’t fight the fact my heart is searching for you still

boy i thought that we were fine, but
our relationship we probably should have redefined
and now in hindsight, it seems like you were never mine
i wish we never would have ever crossed that line again

cause when i see you, you seem perfect
or close to whatever on this earth is
in my mind you resurface. there’s an urgency
within me to pursue you, but I’m nervous
of what i already know
because our pieces won’t fit,
our puzzles won’t mold, our path’s not meant, but still i go
trying to craft the perfect pieces
in my mind, knowing that the whole time,
it’s only but a lie
cause you and i could never be,
i feel that within the depths of me,
but something 'bout you just won’t let me be;
i’d rather leave you than to not love you at all

girl i love you to the point that i’m willing
not to ever love you anymore
cause i know that certain things we should never explore,
but i can’t fight the fact my heart is searching for you still

boy i thought that we were fine, but
our relationship we probably should have redefined
and now in hindsight, it seems like you were never mine
i wish we never would have ever crossed that line again

tell me, how you keep on breaking
me apart? it’s like my mind and soul
don’t even know my heart
and we’ve been broken up for so long,
but i still feel like i’m singing the same song
like, “where’ve you been at babe, yeah, when you coming over?”
my vision’s not that good, i really should be sober,
and you always catch me on the bad nights, feeling too high
to fight, you’re feeling perfectly right
we raise the boundaries and draw them back
just right where we want,
i say i’m finished, but you’ve been using that exact front.
we don’t know rules or growing apart,
or is that growing up, or am I going too far?

girl i love you to the point that i’m willing
not to ever love you anymore
cause i know that certain things we should never explore,
but i can’t fight the fact my heart is searching for you still

boy i thought that we were fine, but
our relationship we probably should have redefined
and now in hindsight, it seems like you were never mine
i wish we never would have ever crossed that line again

thinkin’ 'bout the way it used to be and feel
whenever you’re around me -
Track Name: To The Tune
see, i’ve been watching
you for a while now, i gotta let you know
that I’m really digging your style -

see you’re so fly when i see you
passing by, only thing that I can think,
“if we ever were to - ”

emotions at the back of my throat,
i breathe in love, look at you,
and i let myself choke.
it’s only sweet air when you’re there,
i sit back and relax, don’t know how i was
scared -

let your all be mine; when i got you
in my arms, how can i do any harm?

it’s an affair with chance. something new,
strip my plans, and we do it again.

to the tune,

"let your all be mine - "
Track Name: Of Honeysuckles
you’re the most precious
little thing; drown in you even in my dreams,
i’ll fall all up in it, all up in it witcha’ baby -
i’m so consumed with how you be,
bring life into the air i breathe, and i’ll lose life without you,
put your arms around me,
and feel my love,
it’s getting sweet,
with every touch,
we’re getting deeper,
feel my love,
it’s getting sweet,
with every touch,
with every touch -

peanut butter honey sandwich is what you taste like,
peanut butter honey sandwich is what you taste like,
peanut butter, when we’re lovin’, it’s something special babe.
peanut butter honey sandwich is what you taste like,
peanut butter honey sandwich is what you taste like,
when we’re lovin', honeysuckle; it’s something special baby -

so sweet,
honey love,
and your love just got me gone,
i smile when you’re around,
make a believer outta me.
the most purest thing i've known, so glad to me you were
shown -

peace and love’s what we’re about,
tastes like chocolate in and out,
so -

peanut butter honey sandwich is what you taste like,
peanut butter honey sandwich is what you taste like,
peanut butter, when we’re lovin’, it’s something special babe.
peanut butter honey sandwich is what you taste like,
peanut butter honey sandwich is what you taste like,
when we’re lovin', honeysuckle; it’s something special baby -
Track Name: Under The Window
i awake to a world of pitch
and for the sake of appearances
step outside to all faces and forms

silhouetted,
indistinguishable from one
another,

tantamount and standing in their own jet
semblances, imbued
and benumbed by a far off beacon -

i too become fixed on the alabaster
source of our sudden futility;
beautiful, humanesque and intangible.

the beacon sharpens to a young woman
stoic at her window and staring - vigil
and vantage over infinite mannequins -

and as i reach out a hand to hail
and raise a hail to harken, i as well am black
and naught but pitch -
