Track Name: Surrender
They say seeing is believing
But do you believe what you're seeing?
When will you ever find the truth?
Well, baby girl I got the truth
And see the thing about it
Is when you have to go without it
Then you realize
Those other guys just won't do

You song the same ol' song
About how he'd done you wrong
And steady moving on
Until I came along
I want the best of your love
But you won't let me get to your love
I guess you'll never know what could become
Of you and me
Cause you're so reluctant to see

Surrender all your love give it a chance
You'll find no greater love girl here I am
So whose your man?
It better be Sam Trump

Who else is gonna hold you down?
I'll be the one you could come home to
And if when some hard times arrive
I'll be the one to console you
And I know, I be the busiest
But I'll never neglect the time I got for you
And I will keep it up
Wanna be the one your thinking of
Make you forget about the old you

You song the same ol' song
About how he'd done you wrong
Steady moving on
Until I came along
I want the best of your love
But you won't let me get to your love
I guess you'll never know what could become
Of you and me
Cause you're so reluctant to see

Surrender all your love give it a chance
You'll find no greater love girl here I am
So whose your man?
It better be Sam Trump
Track Name: Jukebox
Heyyyyyyeah!

It's about tiiiiiiime I seen you in this place
Tell me where have you been girl?
And how could I forget your face?
You've been running through my mind
beating record time
I'm tryna keep up with you
But I'm stuck in this spot
I'm a Wurlitzer Jukebox!
But I play the classics
Yes I play the classics
Insert just one quarter
I'll make your body flow like water, yeah
So since your here tonight
I think it's only right
For you to dance for me just like the last time

I remember just like it was yesterday
All your favorite songs you select to play
And I still remember how it felt to be used by you
See you like music you don't discriminate
You like Blues, you like Jazz, you like Sooooooul
And HipHop, but tonight

Why don't you Rock & Roll for me
Rock
Rock, oh
Rock
Won't you Roll it Roll it
Roll it Roll it
Roll it Roll it
Rock & Roll for me

You came her to dance anyway
So pay me and I'll do my thang
There's just one thing I need from you
I play the tunes and you make it juke

Why don't you Rock & Roll for me
Rock
Rock, oh
Rock
Won't you Roll it Roll it
Roll it Roll it
Roll it Roll it
Why don't you Rock rock, Roll

I play the classics
Yes I play the classics
Insert just one quarter
I'll make your body flow like water
So since your here tonight
I think it's only right
For you to dance for me just like the last time

I remember just like it was yesterday
You came to the stage and you set the pace
From then on this place has never been the same
Cause when you dance you got the power to hypnotize
The way you Rock from side, to side
I tried to compromise
But can't have it any other waaaayyy

Track Name: That Thing
You could be
On the other side, of the room and I'd
Feel your energy
It be killin me
But so soothing
I look up to see
Your eyes staring at me
We got that ESP
It makes convenience for communicating easily
Easily telepathy
Don't take a genius to see what we have is everything
Incredibly
Developing
And steadily
Enveloping
Your love is heavenly
cause you're and angel
Lace you with a wedding ring
To match your halo
What's mine is yours anything don't have to ask for nothing
I know on your mind is something
Could it be lovin'?
And though I can read your mind
It's obvious in your eyes

Don't have to say a word
Cause I already heard
Your soul is calling my name
It's just that thing
That I wanna do
When I get next to you
Can't fight it and I won't hide it
Making sweet love to you
It's just that thing

That you do
Just attracts me to you
No matter how hard I resist
We, gravitate like opposites
You stimulate
My left and right brain
And just the thought of you
It send me into outter space

We have a chemistry
Let's do an experiement!
I will be the constant
And you can be the variable
Let's both see how far you go
When you're under my control
I can guess the end result
Reactions will be chemical

Don't have to say a word
Cause I already heard
Your soul is calling my name
It's just that thing
That I wanna do
When I get next to you
Can't fight it and I won't hide it
Making sweet love to you
It's just that thing
Track Name: Choices
My mama always said
Make good choices
For the decisions you make today
You'll have to seen through to the end
After all
Our very circumstance is just a product of yesterday's choices
So tell me
What's in store for tomorrow?

Oh
Fork in the road, which way to go?

We have choices

I choose you!
Track Name: My Heart
Your touch
Is never enough
And baby your energy
Gives me a rush

Can you hear my heartbeat?
Bumb, bumb

These four chambers are filled with love
And they pump blood
Through my veins
To strengthen my limbs to
Hold you close
And when I hold you

Can you feel my heart beat?
When i hold you
Can you feel my heart beat?

My heart sets still when we're apart
So cold and hard
Then you warm me when you come around
And then my heart begins to thaw
And slowly starts to beat again

When i hold you
Can you feel my heart beat?

Mmmm
Can you feel my
Heartbeat do you?

Will you just be for me?

Bumb, Bumb
Track Name: Electrify
Girl when I first laid eyes on you
I was struck
Had me so hypnotized with your
Eclectic getup
Cause girl you looked so fly when you
When you step up
I was stuck
you brought me back to life with your
Electric touch

Electrify me
Oh yeah
Oh you put me in shock, DAMN

This is the way it's been since then
Electrify
Daily she gives me light again
Electrify
Shock, DAMN, yup!
Electrify
This is the way it's been since then
Daily she gives me light again

You know you did it
Electrified
I'm fried standing here stuck at your eyes
You got me trippin'
Nervous system
This feeling of transaction is something like synapses
Whoa!
I need composure
Bring me some water
Better yet a rubber
To keep me grounded
Cause I'm bout ready to blast off like a rocket
Shock will penetrate my body if I infiltrate your socket

Whoa!

Oh you put me in shock, DAMN

This is the way it's been since then
Electrify
Daily she gives me light again
Electrify
Shock, DAMN, yup!
Electrify
This is the way it's been since then
Daily she gives me light again

Electrify
Track Name: Wasn't Looking
One look
In your eyes
Sets me straight
For a day
One touch
Satisfies
Simply makes
Me ok
Your smile
Is sunshine
Breaks clouds on
Rainy days
Every day's just fine
And you made it this way

I wasn't looking for love
But I found it
I mean I would look for anything but love
And I found it

Your presence fills me up
Satisfaction in your touch
Contentment in your love

You're an angel
You're the epitome of great
And I just gotta say you take the cake
Sock it to me
You German chocolate
Warm cinnamon coffee
You give me 7Up even in an off week
The mold of a bunt cause you touch softly
Zest of a lemon
The flavor's in your skin
Sexy red velvet
Lipstick on your grin
Expensive taste
You're made from 24karats
And you're so sweet save for me the big piece
Your curves and proportion matches

Your words hit my sense of smell
It serve me well
Like I can tell there's five minutes left
Best warm, but that's normal
Cause you've been warm forever
Warm since the day you were born
Like right out the oven
Since you were delivered
A cake to celebrate us
Wedding with the layers
Cause we're constantly building

Here we are
We made it to the top
Wow look at that purple sky
Wow it's so beautiful
Beautiful all around
Just like you
Aww baby

I wasn't looking for love
But I found it
I mean I would look for anything but love
And I found it

Your presence fills me up
Satisfaction in your touch
Contentment in your love
Track Name: Count On Me
We are all in this together
Don't ever think that you are alone
If ever you're falling
I'll be there to catch you
With no place to call home
I'll be your refuge

Just hold on
When times get hard
Just push through
Breathe in
Your second wind
It aint over till you reach the end

Da da dat dah
Release your cares to the world
Just release your cares
Release your cares to the world
No matter what you're going through
Release your cares to the world
Just let'em go let'em go
Release your cares to the world
I'll take good care of you
Release your cares to the world
And I'll stand by your side till you get through
Release your cares to the world
It's almost over
Release your cares to the world
Just hold on
Release your cares to the world

Release your cares to the world
You can leave your worries with me
If you need a shoulder
You can always count on me
It doesn't matter the time of day
When you call my name
You'll hear me say
I'll be right over
You can always count on me
Track Name: Brother (ft. Add-2)
Can't look in the eyes of my brother
Without shedding a tear for my brother
I really wanna try for my brother
Cause I truly do feel for my brother
Since they lie to my brother
I'll teach the truth to my brother
And I'll do for my brother
To call it truce with my brother

Truce
Peace
Love
Brotherly
Trust
Coexist
We can live in harmony

See, If he can't get love
He'll find a supplement
Express hurt outwardly
Or self-inflict, cowardly
Everyone wants to belong
Everyone deserves another
I can't depend on others
To take care of my own brother
I was asked

If I'm willing to die for my brother
But I'd rather live for my brother
And stand to with my brother
They plan to kill my own brother
This message is to heal my brother
Because they have scarred my brother
Dropped the last name of my brother
Shot, edited, and framed my brother
Then accuse my brother
And blatantly refuse my brother
Put a price on his hue of color
I can't afford to lose my own brother

La, la, la...la, la

Peace King!
If you aint heard that, the word black is beautiful to me
We think
That we are less but we still blessed regardless, of all this stress
All this stress, is all our test
A masterpiece and God is our art-est
Raphael De La Ghetto, black like the kettle
Kids carry metal and they telling heaven hello
But we look to the sky for new day, for a new day
I need a GPS to find a new way, find a new way
I need the real thing not the bootleg, not the bootleg
All I see is food and liquor word to Lupe, what do you say?
You see I'm tryna find the king inside
Can wear a chain on your chest but the bling inside
And we gone ride until we alright
What can you provide, keep the youth alive?
Cops shoot shots but they don’t do the time
So you decide, you can choose a side
Either you can die or you could fly
See, we all from the mother land
Only right I that I see you as my brother man…you understand?

Ndugu wa damu

There's a light that shines in my brother
Hides deep inside of my brother
I wanna pull back the cover
So the world can discover
The real brother

I see you as my brother
Even if we came from different mothers
Regardless of skin color, it doesn't matter
See I gotta wanna protect you like you're my own
And we have to
No matter whatever they say

Yo! They can try to take, but they can't erase
It's in your blood!
Nah! Can't wash away our history
It's in your blood!
They can try to take but the can't erase
It's in your blood!
Naw! Our history won't fade away
It's in your blood!
Track Name: Purple Skies
The sun reminds me, of you

As each day passes by
To set the sun on purple skies
Just know your love's instilled in me
And though I'm somewhere new
I still think of you

I first wanna say thanks
Thanks
To the God that made me
And secondly to the two who raised me
And to the rest of fam and my friends
And my fans for the love you gave me
It is greatly appreciated
All I do is for you
And I just wanna give back the best thing
You gave me

As each day passes by
To set the sun on purple skies
Just know your love's instilled in me
And though I'm somewhere new
I still think of you

Those of you who are still with us
And those who have passed on
You see everyone has their own story to tell right?
Right, history

Growing up in Houston
I had no excuse for losing
I had everything I needed
Just needed no-how to use it
I clinged on to this music quick
Put away with foolishness
I tried it then I decided it was gone be for life
So deeply rooted I
Plant and seed and
Then I grew it I
Watch it bloom into
Something beautiful
What a wonderful sight to see and I
Wonder what else God has in store for me and I
Believe

As each day passes by
To set the sun on purple skies
Just know your love's instilled in me
And though I'm somewhere new
I still think of you
