Track Name: Cross My Mind
mmmmmm
oh-wah oh oh
oh-wah
oh-way oh oh
oh-way

playa playa
why ya gotta be bad
dirty dirty
always wanting what ya can't have
i don't care to be your latest conquest but
the way you got me going has me more than impressed
i am ripe and he wants to take a bite
his poison in my veins feels like a lullaby
it lays me down
he lays me down

it didn't really cross my mind
till i saw the way he was movin'
even then it took some time
ooooh
playa go on

something told me i should shelter my heart
but your mouth said "go"
so i took it fast yea
i took it far
no escapin'
he'll be leaving me with new scars
uh huh yeah
the playa plays hard but
he doesn't finish what he starts
my magician disappearing is his art

it didn't really cross my mind
till i saw the way he was movin'
even then it took some time
ooooh
i'll let it marinate
let it sink in
it didn't really cross my mind
(didn't really cross my mind)
till i saw the way he was movin'
till i saw the way he was movin'
even then it took some time
ooooh
playa go on
Track Name: She Knows
ya keep telling me that it's over
but she will not comply
shadowy waters are creeping sweetly up her thighs
she can't quite see to the bottom
but the things she'll find
when everything that you've been hiding
washes up with the tide

secrets are shape shifters brotha
they surface like a creature out the water
wrap around your neck if you struggle
they'll take you down and steal your life

if you don't make up your mind my friend you're gonna lose us both
and I cannot waste my time you gotta gotta choose your role
what we have cannot survive underground, no, mmmhmm

she knows... she knows... she knows...she knows
she knows... she knows...
she knows knows knows knows knows knows

secrets are shape shifters brotha
they surface like a creature out the water
wrap around your neck if you struggle
they'll take you down and steal your life

if you don't make up your mind my friend you're gonna lose us both
and I cannot waste my time you've gotta gotta choose your role
what we have cannot survive underground, no, mmmhmm

SECRETS

an intuitive river runs through her
you can try to take her on a detour
but she'll find her way back to the flow
and when she does she'll know
she's watching our lips move
as we talk in the alcove
hot fire in her fingertips
the river rushing by her toes

chuckin knives with her eyes but I dodge em
woah
head held high... queen overthrown
heart hung up like a target on a post
think I see the bullet holes
think I see the bullet holes
think I see the bullet holes

she knows... she knows... she knows...she knows
she knows... she knows
she knows knows knows knows knows knows
Track Name: Rlctnt Hstlr
arrival moon in full bloom
slave to the tide baby soon come soon soon
slave to the tide baby soon come soon soon

slip inside cus a hectic vibe just wrecked me
judging from the scene I think
at the end of the night
they gonna wonder wonder wonder wonder

next night was the house party
her drug tanks full and mines empty
my fuel for the night is rum ya see
I asked her what drug she said many many many many

hadn't seen a boy since january
let go flow brought me right back to ya
ohhhhhhwoaahhhhwoahhhoh

you were
far too sweet
bared my teeth and you said you knew me
I said I got the keys so fuck the jam
suddenly you know what kinda
uh uh

but we didn't fuck the jam no we danced to the seed
laughed at the players when they claimed defeat
desperation when the slow song come on and the conquests go
PEACE

tequila and a lime
tequila and a lime
tequila and a li-i-i-i-i-ime

gettin money all the time
gettin money all the the time
gettin money gettin money all the time yea
