Baby Can't Wait  

i know this might sound strange
but i can feel my love so far away
how can this be true
when all my love lies eternally with you
it's a hard road sugar ahead of us
especially when you know that i'll be so far away
i hope you understand how much it is that you mean to me
there never seems to be enough hours in the day

and i can't wait, i already miss you
baby can't wait, side by side again
and i can't wait, i already miss you
baby can't wait 'til i can see your smiling face again

and how can this compare
the trust we've built we can't find nowhere
how is it this love
can make make my fears all slowly melt away
it's a hard road sugar ahead of us
especially when you know that i'll be so far away
i hope you understand how much it is that you mean to me
there never seems to be enough hours in the day

all you're feelin, somewhere deep inside
i guarantee these feelings that you're feeling are mine
all you 're feeling baby, somewhere deep inside
i guarantee these feelings that you're feeling…

baby can't wait hold on
baby can't wait
by your side
baby can't wait
hold on
baby can't wait
baby can't wait


Give Me Some Time

I don't know why but all the lies seem so complicated Discerning the truth's becoming the root of all my worst frustrations
I can't get enough of what I need today
Tomorrow doesn't even matter so I don't wanna pay
For every incidental measure that's applies to the whole
I just wanna space to live that I can call my home

Just give me some time
Give me some time
Give me some time
I beg to differ the consequence was not mine
Give me some time
I beg to differ the consequence was not mine

They say if you just follow the rules you'll live a happier life
I can't continue playin the fool if I've got nothing to hide
I try to get ahead of the game but it is leading me nowhere
It pays to be poor struggling on the line ya

Just give me some time
I beg to differ the consequence was not mine
Give me some time
I beg to differ the consequence was not mine
I can't remember what a peaceful moment is But I'll tell you when hits When something wicked this way comes I swear I'll have the strength to carry on And the diligence just give me some time, give me some time, give me some

Give me some time
I beg to differ the consequence was not mine
Give me some time
I beg to differ the consequence was not mine


Just Like Murder

You've changed for the better you say
Three words in a sea of regret
We used to think along the lines of something similar
And now it seems that we've forgotten why we share this earth
Is my saying something I have yet to know, cause when the truth goes into hiding I dread its return
Forget all the promises made cause it doesn't seem to make a difference anyways
Your mind is darkening like the sky and when truth gets loose, people fall down someone gets hurt in the heat of the moment

I see your face but its not like yesterday
And we feel the same but you tell me different
And I hope you'll stay ya
Cause when you take your love from me I swear its just like murder

I see you're back at it again but all the twists and turns of fate can not destroy the enemy friend your mind is darkening like the sky when the truth gets loose it seems to never ever want to die

I see your face but its not like yesterday
And we feel the same but you tell me different
And I hope you'll stay ya
Cause when you take your love from me I swear its just like murder

You've changed for the better you say


Motherfucker  

Word on the street's that you're tryin to act mother fucker Word on the streets that you're tryin to change your life
Word on the street's that you're tryin to act mother fucker
words don't change cause you tell a lie and neither do you

Words don't change their point of view
Simply cause you're not quite really in the mood
And simply as the sun goes down I'll be there for you
lurking in the shadows baby the brother that you never knew

Word on the street's that you're tryin to act mother fucker Word on the streets that you're tryin to change your life Word on the street's that you're tryin to act mother fucker words don't change cause you tell a lie and neither do you when you run and hide

Thoughts can't change their amplitude Just because your vision is so far removed And simply as the sun comes up I'll be there for you Lurking in shoadows baby the brother that you never knew

Word on the street's that you're tryin to act mother fucker
Word on the streets that you're tryin to change your life Word on the street's that you're tryin to act mother fucker words don't change cause you tell a lie and neither do you when you run and hide where do draw the line
Lies lies every one lies you've got to keep the fellas on the other side
 

See Clearly

Well I offered up my troubles to this sunny mid-day afternoon Hoping that I might obtain a view of the things I have grown used to those which keep me down
In the hopes that I might someday find my way out
(help me cause I'm running out of time)

Help to see clearly cause I'm running out of time
Help me to see clearly I'm running oh so far behind

In the midst of mass confusion I chose to remain
I was blind to all the visions in mind
And I swore I hear a thunder that replaced the sound of silence
And I felt the world around me passin by

Help to see clearly cause I'm running out of time
Help me to see clearly I'm running oh so far behind
Help to see clearly cause I'm running out of time
Help me to see clearly I'm running oh so far behind
And you know life has got the strangest ways of letting you know
There is only freedom

Help to see clearly cause I'm running out of time
Help me to see clearly I'm running oh so far behind
Help to see clearly cause I'm running out of time
Help me to see clearly I'm running oh so far behind
And you know life has got the strangest ways of letting you know
There are no illusions
And you know life has got the strangest ways of letting you know
There is only freedom

Help to see clearly cause I'm running out of time
Help me to see clearly I'm running oh so far behind


So Tired

I want some restitution for my life today
you know I don't mind losin as long as I can play
aint no love around here hell if I know why
I hate to have to say this but man I got to fly, fly

I'm so tired of makin a livin
I'm so tired of makin it work out now
I'm so tired of pickin up pieces
I'm so tired , wont you take me anywhere far away from here

I want some understanding from this world today
It hurts when I see people stuck inside their ways
And I don't see compassion burning in their eyes its hard to make a living
When all you know is try, try

I'm so tired of makin a livin
I'm so tired of makin it work out now
I'm so tired of pickin up pieces
I'm so tired of almost everything
I'm so tired of makin the ends meet
I'm so tired of makin it work out
I'm so tired enough is enough now
I'm so tired , wont you take me anywhere far away from here


Then We'll Know

Sweetness a bitter love
More deeper than we knew
How this got so heated
God may only know
You give me to much pleasure
Hold on just a little bit
Make this last forever
Hold on just a little bit
How you know this rhythm
Hold on just a little bit
Maybe we could come together

Then we'll know how our love works baby
Nothing compares
When we make love like this

Simple as me asking you
May I make love to you
Aint nothing wrong aint nothing complicated
Than this time I want to spend with you
You give me to much pleasure
Hold on just a little bit
Make this last forever
Hold on just a little bit
How you know this rhythm
Hold on just a little bit
Maybe we could come together

Then we'll know how our love works baby
Nothing compares
When we make love like this

Then we'll know how our love works baby
Nothing compares
When we make love like this

Aint nothing wrong aint nothing complicated
Maybe you could come over for just a little bit
And stay for a little while


We've Got Desire

Can't hear a thing but I can feel you beneath me
Lost in my thoughts as I be riding this subway
in the street lights steam is rising forming a visceral vision of you

We've got desire burning in the fire, I know exactly what you're thinking baby but I know that you're wrong, this ain't deceiving baby its the real thing
I'm realizing that I'm nothing without you, I'm watching you write inside your favorite cafe, from a distance all seems inviting I can't imagine life without love, thats why I'm trying to say, I can't stop thinking about you cause you are my sunshine lady

We've got desire burning in the fire, I know exactly what you're thinking baby but I know that you're wrong, this ain't deceiving baby its the real thing

I can't believe that you'd forget this love we had oh not so long ago
I just want you to know
How I feel

Something about you in my arms
Can not control the passion you make me
When you are gone its never the same, how can I live without loving

I can't stop thinking about you cause you are my sunshine fire in the sky


You Can't Hide 

Everybody's got some devotion, hidden somewhere along the way
One false hope leads to the notion forever wasn't built in a day,
but you keep rolling away trying to escape inevitabílity heading your
but you keep rolling away praying for the day your mighty riches will come falling someday

We stand our ground, we are young, we rely on our defiance just to lose what we have found

I can't believe the state of things that's goin on
with the whole wide world in a mess I don't think we're ever coming down
but you keep rolling away trying to escape inevitabílity heading your
but you keep rolling away praying for the day your mighty riches will come falling someday

We stand our ground, we are young, we rely on our defiance just to lose what we have found

You can't hide, from everything you are
You can't hide, from everything you is
You can't hide, if you love me over here
You can't hide, I will love you over there
