Track Name: Bus Ride
You just never know

La da da...

I was sittin’ there, mindin’ mine
Some on the bus, some in line
My eyes went wide when I saw her there
Lookin’ for a seat, you can sit right here
Real tight body, real cute face
Small conversation turned to quick pace
Can’t remember how but we started to kiss
Never had a bus ride quite like this

(La dada...)
You just never know
You just never know
You just never know
What could happen in life, you just never know
Track Name: You Luv Me (feat. Shae Fiol)
Whoa...

Turns out that you’re a flower
I never would’ve thought
And if I was a bettin’ man lookin’ at my cards, I woulda’ bet it all
That you would never love me
That you would never care
But now I know, I woulda’ lost the bet, because you’re here with me

You Love Me
You Love Me
You Love Me
You Love Me

Whoa…

It was truly misunderstanding
We’ve both been hurt enough to bear the burden of insecurities
In my head I get so lost, it’s hard to open up
But your patience shows me that you don’t want to be with anyone but me
Because you love me, you love me

You Love Me
You Love Me
You Love Me
You Love Me

Tainted by the voice of broken trust
It’s the little things that break us up
Well, I promise to do my best to communicate exactly how I feel
I won’t hold back I’ll give you all I have
I’ll put my faith in us, I know you can too
It’s just that lovers get so confused this shit is sacred where just supposed to love

You Love Me
You Love Me
You Love Me
You Love Me
Track Name: Callin' You

Track Name: Do What You Gotta Do (feat. Kid Cut)
Let's go

I see you lookin' at me, It's all good
You live the life you choose to live, I live my life I choose to live
You make your money the way you make your money
But don't think this is ever easy, Come on

Check ch check 1 2 3 people, are all different and yet where equal
What's right for me may not work for you, so do what you gotta do

Some people keep the faith going to church
I keep it stayin' at home, with a melody for a prayer
and a studio for a dome
Some y'all people got cash to spend, some of us don't
Some people care about the size of the house
Other only care it's a home
It don't matter who's right or wrong
Just that you are true
The only way to happiness in the end is if you stay true to you

Check ch check 1 2 3 people, are all different and yet where equal
What's right for me may not work for you, so do what you gotta do
I know you know this life ain't easy, and it can make your mind go crazy
So live the way that works for you, and do what you gotta do

Some people care about fashion and friends
Some people just don't care
They'd rather sit back and chill at home, as long as there lovers there
Some people just like to think to themselves, others got somthin' to say
Some people got big hopes and dreams, others take it day by day

Check ch check 1 2 3 people, are all different and yet where equal
What's right for me may not work for you, so do what you gotta do
Check ch check 1 2 3 people, are all different and yet where equal
What's right for me may not work for you, so do what you gotta do
I know you know this life ain't easy, and it can make your mind go crazy
So live the way that works for you, and do what you gotta do

Do what you got to do
Do what you got to do
Do what you got to do
Do what you got to do

You see, I do what I do to get by in life
I do what's right for me, what I believe in
I stand up for what I feel is the right thing
So you live your life and you do what you gotta do
I'll never scorn you, so don't even think twice about scornin' me
This is my world and my life

(Come on and goodnight, goodnight don't fuss don't fight allright yeah allright)
(Come on and goodnight, goodnight don't fuss don't fight allright yeah allright)

Check ch check 1 2 3 people, are all different and yet where equal

Track Name: She's Gone
My love has flown away she’s gone
Her lips, her smile, her laugh, her style
Have you ever found yourself the victim of
A circumstance wich you tell your love to go
Even though in your heart of hearts you didn’t mean it true
But she’s gone and now you’ve lost her glow

I know what to do you cry then sigh
We all make mistake
Keep faith in love time will heal your heartache

I know in time I will find my way
I’ll keep my strength so I wont go astray
Have you ever found yourself the victim of
A circumstance wich you tell your love to go
Even though in your heart of hearts you didn’t mean it true
But she’s gone and now you’ve lost her glow

I know what to do you cry then sigh
We all make mistake
Keep faith in love time will heal your heartache

There are time when I recall that I could'nt live my life
And each day seemed like a year just passing by
Day by day I slowly realized I could see a light
But it only became bright after I

I cried then sighed
We all make mistake
Keep faith in love time will heal your heartache
Track Name: It's Been Fun (feat. D. Brown)
All last night, all today
I've been thinking of words to say
Do I love you or do I hate you
You bring me joy but you bring me pain
But when I found out his name and that you just couldn't refrain
for just one night
Well all I have to say to you is

It's been fun but you and I just ain't workin' out
It's been fun but now I see what you are all about
It's been fun but you and I just ain't workin' out
It's been fun but now I see what you are all about

I felt all the pain that any man should bear
You've been through the same
With all I been through, all you been through
but still you treat me wrong and really what did you gain
Because I found out his name and that you just couldn't refrain
for just one night
Well all I have to say to you is

It's been fun but you and I just ain't workin' out
It's been fun but now I see what you are all about
It's been fun but you and I just ain't workin' out
It's been fun but now I see what you are all about

Fresh off work, relax and unwind
First thing to mind is this lady of mine
Her schedule's too busy for quality time
So I feel another brother is finessing my dime.
No insecurity 'cause my status is prime
So I grabs a corona with a slice of lime.
Thinkin' bout the mountains that we had to climb
While reminiscing on our first glass of whine.
I never thought something that was so divine
After all we've been through would just waste my time.
And every thought of you straight weakens my spine
In the most severe storm you make the sunshine.
Lord help me 'cause I'm caught in a bind
They say that love is blind and it's really hard to find.
Executive thug so I holds down mine,
I'll be fine, so put it all on the line.
Never mind, our conversation is done and
Oh yeah baby boo ah it's been fun

It's been fun but you and I just ain't workin' out
It's been fun but now I see what you are all about
It's been fun but you and I just ain't workin' out
It's been fun but now I see what you are all about
It's been fun but you and I just ain't workin' out
It's been fun but now I see what you are all about

Better off without you
Better off without you
Better off without you
Better off without you
(I'm better off without you that's the way that I feel)
Track Name: Killin' Time
It’s been so long since we seen each other
I thought that we’d be together forever
(Hold on) baby hold on yeah
cuz now we’ve both moved on
I’m more than alright girl you know I’m doin’ my thing
Just seems like somethings missing

Cuz if you really wanna know I’m lonely
If I really tell the truth I’m lonely
Cuz everything I do without you is killin' time

I’m up late it’s cold December
I’m thinkin’ back to our summers
Your memory keeps me warmer than leather
Forever and ever
(Hold on) baby hold on yeah
cuz now we’ve both moved on
I’m more than alright girl you know I’m doin’ my thing
Just seems like somethings missing

Cuz if you really wanna know I’m lonely
If I really tell the truth I’m lonely
Cuz everything I do without you is killin' time

Even though I got it good girl you know it’s not the same without you
Now you know I’m livin’ well but it just isn’t the same without you x4
I don’t know ( if you ever think about me)
I don’t know ( if you ever think about me)
Please tell me so (tell me if you think about me)
Cuz girl I been thinkin’ about you

Cuz if you really wanna know I’m lonely
If I really tell the truth I’m lonely
Cuz everything I do without you is killin' time
Track Name: Must Be You
Lookin in my closet hey find the right shirt to wear through the day

Stroll downstairs get my breakfast on, butter my toast while I hum a song

Cuz me and my girl are in love
Run out the door thinking to myself,
Damn life’s sweet but I don’t know why

It must be you that makes me have to smile
I’m smiling more now than ever
It must be you that makes me feel so good
I’ve never felt better
It must be you that helps me to get bye

Pick up my girl roll to the beach,

I’m tryin to contain myself cuz my girl looks good
She’s hot as hell (killin mex2)
