Track Name: Soul Music (feat. KAT)
//Verse 1
I’m back at it
This is that Chicken Soup for the Soul of the rap addict,
I’ve tried to kick it like a bad habit,
Explained the mathematics, 1 in a billion,
Just laughed at it, said I’m 1 in a trillion.
I ain’t even in it for the millions,
Poverty can come,
I can stay obsolete to everyone under the sun,
Still gotta get these lyrics spun.
Woven red rum, killin’ the beat from the keys to the drums,
Sounds easy enough,
But speakin’ is tough,
And meanin’ is even harder with these demons above and below,
But I can’t let it show.
Made this all for you, so you could see the true me flow.
Give a little hope,
For brighter futures, forgiveness, and a new spring’s growth
So listen close and maybe we’ll both discover somethin’ new.
Or at the very least remember a forgotten truth.

//Hook
This is that soul music,
That old music,
That let everything go music,
That make your heart feel whole music,
That soul music.

//Verse 2
I fell in love with music,
‘cause the pictures painted through it,
Heartache, pain, beauty and every human musin’,
Life’s a puzzle with more facets than a Rubix,
Ruthless, melodies just therapeutic acoustics,
Let me see through the illusion: back stage.
Halfway to famous after this rampage,
Who woulda guessed I’d find this pathway?
Took ten long years, lotta driftin’ lost like a castaway,
Now I’m back to stay,
Doesn’t matter if I “make it,” Imma say what I have to say,
This is a game that I have to play,
No way I’m fadin’, waited long enough to let this passion stray,
Now it’s captain slashin’ through the crashin’ waves.
I tried every shortcut, and get rich quick scheme,
Only thing that worked came from the heart, not the slick dreams,
Want it all you want, until you love it’s not enough,
Man you have to face the downs ‘fore you get to see the ups.

//Hook

//Verse 3
Man I told you 2016’d be the year that I killed it,
Set a goal for myself and fulfilled it,
Know y’all feel it,
But that doesn’t show the road and the pain,
The decade of struggle ‘fore I rose to the occasion,
The frustration and anger,
Late nights and tired fingers,
All the times I tried to give up ‘cause I wasn’t major.
All the progress movin’ slower than the slowest glacier,
Wasn’t like I woke up a game changer.
So this is for the struggle,
The grind, and the hustle
Starting over, pickin’ dreams out the rubble,
This is for the times that I fumbled ‘fore I even saw the end zone,
So many Ls, don’t need Urkel to get my wins low.
This is my memorial to the time spent,
So I can never forget how my life went.
Seen too many stars who forgot where they started,
My fire came from the heart, still be the same on the red carpet.
Track Name: Love Story, Pt. 1
//Hook
This is a love story, a love story,
I know, I know, you heard it all before,
There’s nothin’ new anymore.
But you never heard it this way,
Heartbreak never ends the same,
It’s a different game,
And I know this is our story,
And I know you’ll be here for me,
So just listen to the love story, the love story.
Just listen to the love story.

//Verse 1
Set the scene with a love that was never meant to be,
A pent up dream,
A perfect ten and a fed up teen,
Not a recipe that often ends in chemistry,
And yet he dreamt about it endlessly,
Hopin’ for a new destiny,
When she noticed him in math class,
Passed that note askin’ him if he had plans
He was straight floatin’ through the last half,
Couldn’t wait to go and let her know he’d be her last man,
First date turned to two, turned to nights together,
Watchin’ movies on the coach and plannin’ life together,
Talkin’ city lights, pretty sights, and all the fights they’d weather,
Never been in love before, now he’s sure he’ll be this right forever,
Like he’ll repeat this night forever,
Seasons come, seasons go,
But he was done bein’ alone,
So many memories ahead along their road,
He couldn’t wait to go.

//Hook
This is a love story, a love story,
I know, I know, you heard it all before,
There’s nothin’ new anymore.
But you never heard it this way,
Heartbreak never ends the same,
It’s a different game,
And I know this is our story,
And I know you’ll be here for me,
So just listen to the love story, the love story.
Just listen to the love story.
Track Name: Heartbeat (feat. KAT)
//Hook
From my heartbeat into my soul,
Melodies, tellin’ me, this is my home,
And I’m way up when I’m high,
I have to stay up ‘til I die.

//Verse1
It’s one in mornin’, I’m in here recordin’ and some of you wonderin’ why?
Well, I can’t explain it,
Almost like my soul’s emaciated,
A hunger that can’t be satiated by design,
These rhymes write themselves: an outpouring’ of my mind,
Like a first dance, or first glance every time,
My worst jams still speak to me in every line,
Whatever the circumstance, these beats help me define,
Music’s like my therapy, no need to shrink my mind.
Fell in love ‘fore I could talk,
Trippin’ the light fantastic ‘fore I even learned to walk.
Fiendin’ like a fanatic, treatin’ it like a romantic, have to have it or my heart could stop.
So bring me that drop, make sure it’s hot, and forget the clock.
Whether it’s four hours or five minutes,
I’ll take what’s given and try to stretch the limit.
Only really livin’ when I’m sittin’ givin’ listen,
So listen:
Music gives me vision and I’ll take every chance I get to live it.

//Hook

//Verse 2
Whether it’s Beethoven or ‘Hov,
Double bass or the Rhodes,
Every note another treasure trove of gold,
Seven fold, follow the metronome,
Piano licks like yellow bricks, alway stretchin’ home
Get me mellow quick, like when Othello flips.
Monticello’s bricks to a modern day Sage,
Donatello’s hits to a scholar of his ways,
Always pumpin’ through my veins, nonstop, nah, nah,
Man I swear we got this game on lock, on lock,
No way I’m not the same, I’m hot, na na,
Don’t you ever try to say I’m not, I’m not.
Draw inspiration from the greatest,
If I’m not on top, I didn’t make it.
Famous is when I’m engraved
Next to the best, to heck with the rest,
This music moves me passionately,
Can’t settle for adequacy,
Good enough is only good enough
If good enough could erupt.
If music is the universal language, allow me to interrupt:
I’m the next one up.

//Hook
Track Name: Rise (feat. PROJEK)
When I first started rapping, I was copying flows,
Copying hits, copying pros, the only way to grow,
Tryna figure out how to make this my own,
Now I honed the craft, and this game is my throne,
And I'm reigning alone like a cloud on its own,
Man it's tre in the mo'nin' and I'm just now getting home.
No way I’m showin’ patience, so impatient I got hours to go,
You know I’ve waited, no complacency, don’t ever say I’m grown.
With the heart of a lion,
The promise of Zion,
The song of a siren,
The arms of a giant,
Turnin’ this art to an island,
Uncharted territory,
I’m findin’ there’s the glory,
I’m grindin’ where you’re snorin’,
No more silence, I swear I’m roarin’
Let out the beast in me: teeth, claws, all out,
Say you want a piece of me: please, y’all only talk loud.
I’m the only one you see out here puttin’ in work.
The reason I’m the only one you see winnin’ in first.

//Hook
Even though I know I’m gonna shine,
Ain’t never gonna stop my grind,
‘cause my eyes look higher!
And even though I know it’s my time.
I’m never gonna stop this climb,
Reach my desire.

//Verse 2 (PROJEK)
God blessed me with this talent
It's a gift and a curse
Venting with sentences I'm penning
Sense the strength in my verse
Channeling all my emotions
Making sure it gets Murk'd
Word to my mamma, you can ask her,
I been putting in work
All these haters looking at me trying
Limit my growth
But they fail to see the fallacy cause I ain't standing alone
Since sixteen, I been king, now I'm demanding my throne
Tell me how these rappers getting noticed with them amateur flows
The hooligan's in the building
Maneuvering with the villains
Stop asking me what my deal is
I hope that I hurt your feelings
Your music is not appealing
I'm showing you what true skill is
I bring heat just like a skillet
No Pittsburgh, I run with (stealers) steelers
No doubt that I am the illest
I'm wild, I don't conceal it
got em rocking like Elvis
A monster, you know I kill it
A trapped soul, (trap soul) no Bryson tiller
I rose, I'm never wilting
I been putting in work
Ever since I can remember

//Verse 3
Already got this game on lock,
Poppin’ off like I’m aimin’ glocks,
Lock and load like I’m takin’ shots,
Unstoppable like my name’s Lebron,
All the haters wanna take me on,
Try to say I ain’t the greatest, when I’m way beyond.
Nobody close to me, locally, overseas,
Where you gonna find another potpourri with so much potency?
Poetry in flow with so much cogency? Look globally,
I’ll still be the king when you give up, come runnin’ home to me.
Naysayers and skeptics, pharisees and nonbelievers,
Pavin’ the way for a dreamer,
You wanted me to quit, just made me dig deeper.
Said my songs were shit, added rage to the fever,
Motivation to touch the sky,
Win at playin’ my life,
All while savin’ my life,
Shouldn’t have wasted your time sayin’ I was wastin’ mine,
‘Cause I’m on my grind until I die.
Track Name: Et Tu (feat. Callous)
//Hook
I don’t want to be
What you want me to be,
I’m just in it for the love of it.
I’m just in it for the love.
I want to believe,
In everything you see in me,
But, I’m just in it for the love of it,
I’m just in it for the love.

//Verse 1
Look me in my face say I ain’t enough.
After everything you did to gain my trust.
I just want to believe this ain’t the end for us,
But I’m not sure I was made to be famous
Enslaved to this dream,
I love it, but I feel you betrayed me, yeah.
I feel you betrayed me.
Sold me a vision of what I can’t reach,
Of what I can’t be.
I never did this for the money or the shows,
Or the fame, or the glow,
Or to stay in some clothes
Or some rings made of gold.
You sold me on the love, and then made it a fashion show,
What happened to the passion though?!
Now all I hear is “how you gonna market that?”
“Who’s your target audience?” “Is that where all the stars is at?”
Chance and I the only ones who even care about a mixtape.
And that’s a mistake.

//Hook

//Verse 2 (Callous)
Wake up, look in the mirror
Image of a youngin, a lover, even a killer
Most definite quitter, close, never the victor
Controlled, really the prisoner
Emotions holding the trigger
Ugh, faded memories along with the braincells
Hoping time tells if these rhymes will ever sell
Vision getting clearer still, but do I like what I see?
A funeral pyre & the higher desire to speak
Out, what the fuck you talking bout blud
This is my sweat, my tears, this is my blood
Could be my end, my fears, this is my crutch
But watch em lie to us regardless
Time is just the catalyst to living life lethargic
Are you hearing me? The flame inside my heart just started sparking
Think it's telling me, ain't no remedy for the heartless
What the fuck's catharsis
Watch me yelllin out fuck the future when I'm past it


//Hook

//Verse 3
Facebook likes, Twitter follows,
Instagram posts, Whisper mottos,
The new trappings of a rapper: backwards and hollow.
I started spittin’ for the life of Pablo Cezanne, not Picasso,
I’m not in it for centavos,
Keep the paparazzo,
I just wanna stay away north of Colorado,
Writing these songs down,
Singing my heart out,
But you say my art’s drowned out.
Nobody can hear it,
But you said if my lyrics came straight from the spirit,
They would have to come near it.
Have to come and hear it.
How’s it that now I have to sell out to steer it ?
Now there’s a laundry list of extra shit I need to do?
You said my love was enough, you’d help me see it through.
You believed in me, now it’s not just me and you?
All I wanted was the music. I guess I leave you too.
Track Name: Love Story, Pt. 2
//Bridge 1
Can’t you see the all the love in their eyes?
Nothing’s gonna bring them down.
Don’t you know that love always survives?
Nothing’s gonna bring them down.

//Verse 2
“Except maybe a baby?”
“You crazy baby, ain’t nothin’ comin’ between us, but lately,
Well, you been gettin’ on my nerves,
And I’m not so sure that this is gonna work.”
“But I meant it . . .
I’m pregnant.”
Now it’s real — he has to answer the question.
And his Auntie’s pressurin’ him
To not let it end in sin,
Marryin’ is the only Christian option,
And he can’t give in, so he gives up.
Just another father on the run, what else is new?
Just another bastard of a son, but what’s he supposed to do?
He didn’t sign up to say goodbye to his dreams,
He wants to try to be the guy that she needs,
But the guy he wants to be and the guy that he is,
Just a contradiction and a lie that he can’t kick.

//Bridge 2
Can’t you see all the love in their eyes?
It died!
Don’t you know that love always survives?
You lied!
Track Name: Morning After
//Intro
Last night got me emotional,
Catch me cryin’ in my drink, unconsolable, yeah,
But that was last night,
That was last night,
That was last night,
This is the mornin’ after.

//Verse 1
Sun shinin’ on a new day,
Like how you doin’, how you doin’? Yo I’m too straight!
Sippin’ mimosas on a Tuesday,
Toast the world like salute,
Now who’s great like Lupe?
Told me if I ended it, I’d live to regret it,
But I’m havin’ trouble seein’ all the negative.
The bright side’s too bright,
That’s why I got the shades on, my life’s too right.
Forget about what happened last night,
‘Cause that was last night,
Now I got my sights on a fast flight,
Might see Paris or I might see Rome,
But I know I’m better off on my own.

//Hook
So what if I still got you on my mind?
One more drink and I’ll forget that you were ever even mine.
One more drink and I’ll forget that you were . . .
Forget that you . . .
I’ll forget,
I’ll forget this is the mornin’ after.
This is mornin’ after (x4)

//Interlude
So many lies I’ve written,
So many dreams I’ve owned.
So many lives I’m livin’,
I just wanna be known. (x2)

//Verse 2
I used to think of you and me,
In a fast car like you always dreamed
Still got the car, still got me,
Far as I can tell, nothin’ missin’ in the scene,
Just a better way to get it,
Now I’m in my lane to finish
With the gift of vision, never stray from,
Turn away from, No way I’m
Quittin’ ‘til I hit my limit, whenever that day comes.
Turns out you were holdin’ me back,
I guess that’s not surprisin’, all my homie’s knew that.
I guess that’s no surprise, even my mama knew that.
Only question why I stayed livin’ with your pain in the ass. (change melody)

//Hook (x2)

//Outro
Last night got me emotional,
Catch me cryin’ in my drink, unconsolable, yeah,
But that was last night,
That was last night,

This is the mornin’ after.
Track Name: Doubt
//Verse 1
You know that feelin’ when you’re feelin’ trapped and alone?
Demons snatch at your soul?
Wheezin’ and gaspin’ for hope?
Reachin’, graspin’ to hold
On to anything just to cope?
Well I don’t.
Forgot about it,
Lived so long without it.
No church steeple,
Nightstand Bible, or hurt people,
Fire and brimstone decryin’ all my worst evils,
A thousand missionaries with prayers,
Visionaries with wares,
It all falls feeble. Call it my cross to bear.
I’m buried here, dyin’, you forgot about me.
Or I forgot about you.
Who knows the truth,
The toppin’ off of this glass,
The last comfort that I have,
I’d rather that than pop an Ativan,
No takin’ off this mask.
They say to read the Bible,
Pray daily for revival,
I’ve been waitin’ for a while,
No new arrival, I’m through lookin’ for you in every trial.
If you need me, tell me what to do.
But I’m sick of waitin’ for fairy tales to come true.

//Hook
I can’t seem to find a way to open up my eyes,
And see things clearly.
I’m so weary
What do you want from me?
I can’t see it.
What do you want from me?
What do you want from me?
What do you want from me?
I can’t see it.
What do you want from me?
I can’t see it.

//Verse 2
I’ve painted darker pictures, but none as bleak as this.
What if I just wasted my life?! Out here seekin’ bliss?
Or what if I just wasted my life, chasin’ the cheapest hits,
Tempted by the weakest kiss, spendin’ next season’s chips.
Fear and doubt in my mind frame,
Lookin’ for the wounds, call me Thomas with these migraines,
I’m done livin’ in a blind rage,
I gave my brain to you, and you left me on this highway.
This whole thing went sideways.
Try to tell me that it didn’t, come and look at it from my lane.
Said you’d steer, just told me to be the drivetrain,
Now I’m lost without a guide,
Man you lied! I swear I tried,
Led the life you said I had to, killed my pride,
Made my plans to fill my mind, with your lines,
Now I’m fine.
I don’t need another lie,
It’s time I design my grind,
I’m findin’ my own ride.
Followin’ my own signs.

//Hook

//Verse 3
Bottle empty now,
Sittin’ in this empty house.
I scream and shout,
The halls echo back my doubts.
Reaffirm what I’ve known,
That I’m alone,
My soul stone,
Ingrown and in pain.
Maybe just insane.
Talkin’ to the walls while I look up to the sky,
Demandin’ of the ceilin’ fan “why?!”
“Why won’t you love me? Why don’t you care?”
“Sittin’ up above me, but ignorin’ me down here?”
It never answers.
Strange that I can never master
The feelin’ of bein’ trapped here,
In the mask that I plastered to my own face,
Laced with shattered pieces of glass from this thrown vase
Fractured from an old grace and twisted hope’s weight.
You know that feelin’ when you’re feelin’ trapped and alone?
Demons snatch at your soul?
Wheezin’ and gaspin’ for hope?
Reachin’, graspin’ to hold
On to anything just to cope?
Well I don’t.
Forgot about it,
Lived so long without it.

//Hook
Track Name: Regrets/Starting Over (feat. Had)
//Hook (Had)
From bottom to top
We countin it up
We never stop
All this work we do
We bound to get love
So put your hands up, yea
We won't tell you what are plans are, yea
Won't ever stop
Recorded a lot
Did this all for a reason we
Tryna topple these charts
So homie stand up
Getcha brand up

//Verse 1
Sometimes I think that every breath I’ve had is wasted,
Failure so pungent I can taste it,
I mean, I’ve had my moments of greatness,
But mostly it seems like I’m spendin’ life trapped in the basement,
Waitin’ for the day when someone shows up to take it.
I wished I’d lived a little more dangerously,
I wish I didn’t let my fears decide my life so shamelessly,
I wish I’d wandered a little less aimlessly,
Trusted God a little more faithfully,
Accepted praise more graciously,
And hate more courageously.
Too many memories painin’ me,
Every vein in me,
Strainin’ to forget all the shame I see.
Everyone has regrets, but mine are chasin’ me,
The time I’ve spent in my life waitin’ complacently.
Could have been out there grindin’,
Livin’ life and shinin’,
Could have been out there tryin’,
But instead I sat inside just hidin’,
Killin’ time and “survivin’.”
Countin’ ceilin’ tiles and rhymin’.
Now I just wonder where I’ll be when I’m dyin’.

//Hook (Had)

//Verse 2
I used to paint these dreams of a life that was glamorous,
A couple million dollars in the bank, that was average,
A couple million callin’ out my name, that I had to get,
A couple million records from the grave, that’s that Lazarus.
But dreams was all they were
And the hard work was a burden,
And the art perk wasn’t certain,
The serpent’s smart and he’s lurking,
Sold me on the scene of a person with a purpose,
But stole my motivation and made me say I already earned it.
The target rotted away the reason I even started,
I creeped and plotted, but never reached what I wanted,
Broken hearted, fallen, but too numb to notice what had departed,
Lost it before I even agreed to the bargain,
Now I’m empty handed, standin’ alone on this planet,
Damn it! I just wish I hadn’t given up on all I planned,
I wish I’d practiced instead of demandin’,
Worked my ass off instead of just plannin’
Just another regret that’ll never vanish

//Hook (Had)

//Starting Over
Funny how certain events can reset
Everything you’ve ever thought, everything you’ve ever dreamt,
Too bad it’s so hard to repent,
Regrets won’t relent,
Tear down; prevent.
It’s easy to regress
And start going backwards.
Relivin’ the same chapters
But when you factor in the hazards of goin’ faster,
Sometime’s the answer’s backwards.
And bein’ last to heaven, beats bein’ first to hell,
So I’d rather backtrack than have the worst to tell,
I’m not the first who fell,
Nor the worst to sell his soul to burst his cell,
Then thirst to reverse the tale.
I’m just glad to see the truth.
Can’t change the past, but the future’s new,
So I bid adieu to my milieu, so I can set out again with my path renewed.

//Hook
I’ve wasted too much time chasin’ somethin’ I’m not,
I need you to know that this is all that I’ve got,
And I’m leavin’ it,
And I’m startin’ over.
Track Name: Love Story, Pt. 3
//Hook
This is a love story, a love story,
I know, I know, you heard it all before,
There’s nothin’ new anymore.
But you never heard it this way,
Heartbreak never ends the same,
It’s a different game,
And I know this is our story,
And I know you’ll be here for me,
So just listen to the love story, the love story.
Just listen to the love story.

//Verse 3
Heart racin’ even faster than when he asked her out,
He couldn’t count the times he’d driven past her house,
A couple thousand at least, with doubts crowdin’ his peace,
Two years without a peep, how could he ask her now?
Finger hoverin’ over the doorbell,
Trying to imagine his baby boy, her waitin’ joy, or this goin’ well.
Frozen in a spell, holdin’ in a swell,
Of nerves, his words chosen felt
Cheap: Just a stolen shell.
He rehearsed ‘em again anyway.
“I’m sorry, I know it won’t fix anything,
I made a lot of mistakes, left plenty stings,
But please, I’m beggin’, see,
I realized you were a blessing in my life,
I need to make this right.
I need to make this right.
It might take me my whole life,
But I can’t leave without a fight,
That there’s my seed, and you should be my wife.
I just pray you can forgive me for my vice.”

//Hook
This is a love story, a love story,
I know, I know, you heard it all before,
There’s nothin’ new anymore.
But you never heard it this way,
Heartbreak never ends the same,
It’s a different game,
And I know this is our story,
And I know you’ll be here for me,
So just listen to the love story, the love story.
Just listen to the love story.
Track Name: Brighter (feat. Dahm)
//Hook
On my way up, stay up, paid up, make this shit my own,
You know I’m comin’ for your throne, don’t get too comfortable,
My future’s brighter. (x4)
Come up and run it, like you couldn’t touch it,
I swear I’m gon’ become what you couldn’t dream of,
I swear I’m gon’ be one, who you couldn’t see come,
No shootin’ star blindin’ ya, risin’ and shinin’ like the Sun,
My future’s brighter. (x4)

//Verse 1
Every time I looked up I saw black
Now its 50 shades of blue
Bitches shading me?
Got this fade for you
I aint playing when I say the game is through

Just got sober the flow still crack
Now I know my enemy
Fuck your energy
Need no bad vibes
I’m up like half pipes
and ready for the gravity

They try to tear me down I do not notice it
Bring up my wrongdoing note that I’m owning it
I do not fuck with no people that need me to feel
Like a g or I’m real I been over it

Future is brighter like he off the dirty
My future brighter not there but I’m learning
Half of you left soon as I said I’m hurting
Now I know if you ain’t fam you aint worth it

Hopping out the rental, now its a better day
Through the darkness, God you can let it rain
Pour pour, I’m more than poor
I’m broke as fuck at home with nothing zen everyday

Had to get away, and I’m better for it
Me and Hyde got goals, tryna get a foreign
I don’t mean a car, that’d be pretty boring
Although it’d come in handy when we end up touring

Like five years, I’ma make it
Till then pretend and make payments
I see the light and its fading
So I know I gotta go chase it

My future brighter, my crew is tighter
My beats are fire, my view is higher
I’m in the valley of the shadow of death
And my future brighter so raise a lighter, Dahm

//Hook

//Verse 2
Just twelve months ago, I was on my own, and you had never even heard of me,
Now you know, who you’re watchin’ for, ‘cause I’m the one who’s murdering these beats,
I’m the one hittin’ early BP,
I’m the one out workin’ these streets,
I’m the one who’s never done,
Won’t take second best, no Burger King, please.
I’m on fire, like, I’m on fire, like,
You can’t touch me, I’m too much higher, I’m
Too inspired, just how I’m wired,
With all these rhymed lines in my mind, I never get tired,
Nope, nope, never get tired,
The day I see my grave’s the same day I retire,
No more notice required.
I’ve spent too many minutes, hours, days of my life,
Not to blaze when I light,
Turn the day into night,
Or the night into day,
So amazin’ I made it,
Check mate in this game that you’re playin’,
I tried to quit, but this melody kept on callin’ me back,
I tried to split, but I can’t.
No more off an on like your girlfriend,
‘cause I’m constantly blowin’ like this whirlwind,
‘till I depart this world then,
And only then will I begin to descend,
I’m on fire.
And my future’s brighter.
And my future’s brighter.
And my future’s brighter.
My future’s brighter.

Track Name: Love Story (Bonus)
//Hook
This is a love story, a love story,
I know, I know, you heard it all before,
There’s nothin’ new anymore.
But you never heard it this way,
Heartbreak never ends the same,
It’s a different game,
And I know this is our story,
And I know you’ll be here for me,
So just listen to the love story, the love story.
Just listen to the love story.

//Verse 1
Set the scene with a love that was never meant to be,
A pent up dream,
A perfect ten and a fed up teen,
Not a recipe that often ends in chemistry,
And yet he dreamt about it endlessly,
Hopin’ for a new destiny,
When she noticed him in math class,
Passed that note askin’ him if he had plans
He was straight floatin’ through the last half,
Couldn’t wait to go and let her know he’d be her last man,
First date turned to two, turned to nights together,
Watchin’ movies on the coach and plannin’ life together,
Talkin’ city lights, pretty sights, and all the fights they’d weather,
Never been in love before, now he’s sure he’ll be this right forever,
Like he’ll repeat this night forever,
Seasons come, seasons go,
But he was done bein’ alone,
So many memories ahead along their road,
He couldn’t wait to go.

//Hook

And I know this is our story,
And I know you’ll be here for me,
So just listen to the love story, the love story.
Just listen to the love story.

//Bridge 1
Can’t you see the all the love in their eyes?
Nothing’s gonna bring them down.
Don’t you know that love always survives?
Nothing’s gonna bring them down.

//Verse 2
“Except maybe a baby?”
“You crazy baby, ain’t nothin’ comin’ between us, but lately,
Well, you been gettin’ on my nerves,
And I’m not so sure that this is gonna work.”
“But I meant it . . .
I’m pregnant.”
Now it’s real — he has to answer the question.
And his Auntie’s pressurin’ him
To not let it end in sin,
Marryin’ is the only Christian option,
And he can’t give in, so he gives up.
Just another father on the run, what else is new?
Just another bastard of a son, but what’s he supposed to do?
He didn’t sign up to say goodbye to his dreams,
He wants to try to be the guy that she needs,
But the guy he wants to be and the guy that he is,
Just a contradiction and a lie that he can’t kick.

//Bridge 2
Can’t you see all the love in their eyes?
It died!
Don’t you know that love always survives?
You lied!

//Verse 3
Heart racin’ even faster than when he asked her out,
He couldn’t count the times he’d driven past her house,
A couple thousand at least, with doubts crowdin’ his peace,
Two years without a peep, how could he ask her now?
Finger hoverin’ over the doorbell,
Trying to imagine his baby boy, her waitin’ joy, or this goin’ well.
Frozen in a spell, holdin’ in a swell,
Of nerves, his words chosen felt
Cheap: Just a stolen shell.
He rehearsed ‘em again anyway.
“I’m sorry, I know it won’t fix anything,
I made a lot of mistakes, left plenty stings,
But please, I’m beggin’, see,
I realized you were a blessing in my life,
I need to make this right.
I need to make this right.
It might take me my whole life,
But I can’t leave without a fight,
That there’s my seed, and you should be my wife.
I just pray you can forgive me for my vice.”
