Let It Fly 03:18
Let It Fly --- Hey there Hi there Lo there Can we go there? Where we never go Where we can love at last oh babe all these people run in circles for what we have found Leave the promises take the day as it is it’s our time let it fly you say it ain’t easy I say catch the feeling the symptoms say that we got it bad all these people run in circles for what we have found let it fly
Tik Tok 01:59
Tik Tok --- Met my baby at the 5 and dime looked so good let him skip the line asked for his number then I gave him mine cause a girl like me can’t waste no time days go by moments slide close your eyes there goes life hesitate might be late take a chance clap your hands Tik Tok One o’clock Tik Tok Two o’clock Tik Tok three o’clock time it don’t stop for anyone tik tok 5 o’clock tik tok 6 o’clock one by one the seconds run time it don’t stop for anyone can’t repeat can’t skip a beat what you got is all you need trying to make good with what I got tired of making circles around the block it don’t matter if you’re ready or not it don’t stop no it don’t stop can’t own it you can use it some spend it some lose it once it’s gone can’t get it back won’t somebody tell me what to do with that time.... time it don’t stop for anyone
Money 02:28
Money --- I’m talking bout Money, Money,Money Money,Money, Money If I had money I’d tell you what I’d do I’d go downtown and buy some fancy shoes but just like jack I still got jack waiting for my golden egg to crack the day my dreams are done is the day I die young the day I’m done the day I’m done shame there goes another one If I had money I’d be so fly I’d have a gold cumberbund and a gold bow tie a parrot on my shoulder repeating my lines just making sure that you heard me right I got my gold watch gold rock everybody know that gold talks paved a lane with my name on the Golden Gate bridge and it all lights up when I’m coming in the day my dreams are done is the day I die young the day I’m done the day I’m done shame there goes another one If I had money
Higher Baby 03:12
Higher Baby --- She gave herself to him after many of his tries he spits out his shame makes his mouth run dry she brings down the shades it’s a lazy afternoon when he looks at her that way it brings out the mid day moon higher baby it goes higher baby higher baby we go higher baby Silence fills the space gives them something to believe in he takes her to a place hidden in the evening falling in to form whispers turn to breathing they came to this alone not knowing what to leave with higher baby it goes higher baby higher baby we go higher baby
What Could Be (feat. Mark Whitfield) --- I wonder what we could be If you could make me happy I wonder if it really works If love is love just when it hurts Or maybe what they say is true Only a flame when it’s new It dies when you get to used to all the things that lovers do
Wish You Well --- I feel your cold cold eyes on my back like a knife shivers here you come ice ice thin slip crack now you’re in shivers here you come I grabbed your hand to save you but you dragged me down to hell No one can ever replace you but I wish you well I wish you well I wish you well I wish you well you’re on my mind on my mind I am sick out of time trying to wash you off seep seep in always staining where you been I gotta wash you off I said love I said love won’t you leave me alone
Falling (feat. Shad) --- I would walk through winter snow brave the cold all on my own if I knew the path would lead to you When I dream and when I wake there is no rest and no escape my rattling heart in a happy cage Falling Falling for you comes so easily you’ll always and forever have a piece of me In the night you came to me a satellite that’s broken free from penny lane to city streets you found me I turn my face into the sun beaming down on me oh you’re my golden one I even hear you in the breeze calling me love
Now I Know 03:03
Now I Know --- Everybody’s telling me just what I got to do But the only thing that ever made any sense was you Now I Know just how dreams are made Now I Know just how we are saved Now I Know Seems we can’t get away from all these silly squares all these people busy telling us we are not prepared for the world they see oh our love might be what sets them free all we needed was a little faith to set us straight a little help from something else that we could not explain so the two of us could finally live in trust
The End (feat. Talib Kweli) --- All my days are numbered All my days Oh what a daze I'm under Oh what a daze Found each other looking she was perching, he was standing tall A shotgun wedding and a baby coming in the fall Forty years later she's burying what he gave her with a cross She had his good suit pressed wishing she could come along We all want to live forever At least die together Our hope, this won't be The End. They tell her keep believing that the good lord will receive him well That's all that's left as far as she can tell It's anybody's guess where we're finally put to rest in the end, you best live well while you can, while you can
