TOUCH

WHEN I WRITE ITS FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART TO THE TOP

SO OUR FEELINGS WONT STOP

I USED TO WRESTLE WITH INDISCRETIONS

TILL I WAS PINNED DOWN TO WHAT YOU & I COULD BE ANY SUGGESTIONS

 

I’VE

 

SEEN PLENTY OF WOMEN

BUT ONLY A FEW HAVE BEEN WITH ME FROM THE EVENING TO THE MORNING

SAYING THIS MEANS I ONLY SHARE THAT INTIMACY

WITH WHOEVER I WANT TO BE A PART OF ME

 

I’LL

 

GIVE YOU ALL THAT I HAVE WITHIN MYSELF

IN ORDER TO MAKE YOU MY COMMON WEALTH

MY FEELINGS ARE WRITTEN TO SHOW YOU YOUR WORTH & HOW I FEEL FOR YOU

BUT MY ACTIONS WILL SHOW YOU THAT THIS IS ONLY MEANT FOR YOU

 

MY

 

PEN IS OUT OF INK SO MY LETTER IS NOW CLOSED

ALL ACTION IS NOW WHAT I PROPOSE

CAUSE I WANT TO BE DEEPER THAN YOUR SOUL

HOLD ME TIGHT TO HEAR MY HEART BEATING

THATS CAUSE YOUR TOUCH IS WHAT LOVES FEEDING

foreign

IF YOU DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO

I’LL GIVE YOU OPTIONS BEGINNING WITH THE NUMBER 2

& THAT INVOLVES ME & YOU

I DONT NEED CORRECT GRAMMAR TO SAY HOW I FEEL FOR YOU

TRY TO FIGURE IT OUT & YOU’LL BE LEFT CONFUSED

 

WITH

 

ME YOU’RE GOING TO GET IT ALL

IM A PREPAID PHONE & YOU’RE THE MINUTES TO MAKE LOVES CALL

WHY WRITE A STORY & RUN IN CIRCLES

WHEN IN ME YOU’LL FIND YOUR FABLE

 

MY

 

LOVE TO YOU IS IMPORTED

BECAUSE BEFORE ME THAT WORD TO YOU WAS FOREIGN

IM TRYING TO LEAVE YOU IN A STANDSTILL FROZEN

WITH ALL MY HEART & SOULD YOU’VE BE CHOSEN

UNRECOGNIZABLE

LOOK AT YOUR WORLD

YOU CANT UNLESS IM IN THAT PICTURE

I STILL WANT TO SAY YOUR NAME

IF I SAY IT I WOULD BE AFRAID

TO BE SWEPT INTO THOUGHTS OF YESTERDAY

 

LETS

 

MAKE IT HAPPEN & CELEBRATTE

PUT YOUR HANDS TOGETHER AND SAY OUR NAME

SAY THAT YOU LOVE ME WHILE YOU PRAY

I SOUND LIKE THIS TO SEE HOW DARK OF A FEELNG I COULD RELAY

WHILE STILL TALKING OF LOVING YOU TOMMOROW & TODAY

 

CAN

 

THIS BE ACHIEVED IN A MATTER OF A POEM WHILE IT RAINS

I THINK SO YET IT FEELS STRANGE

AS IF I AM LEAVING LOVE TO BECOME A RENEGADE

I STRUCTURE MY THOUGHTS INTO UNRECOGNIZABLE FRAMES

ONE LOOK AT YOU & NOW IM BACK TO BEING SANE

YOU’RE

YOUR LOVE HAS ME ABSORBED IN THESE RHYMES

LIKE A SPONGE I’LL CLEAN OFF YOUR PAST RELATIONSHIPS NEGATIVE VIBES

ONLY TO MAKE YOU FEEL SPECIAL CAUSE YOU’RE MINES

MY WORDS ARE A SHELL OF LIGHT HERE TO BE HEARD

THE PAST IS JUST THAT

THE PRESENT IS HERE, SO GLAD YOU’VE RETURNED

BACK TO WHERE YOU NEED TO BE WITH NO CONCERN

 

I’LL

 

NEVER LET YOU FEEL ALONE

AS IF YOU JUST RECEIVED A LETTER TITLED DEAR JOAN

YOUR INSECURITIES WILL BRING YOU DOWN

BUT MY NAME SHOULD BE UP CAUSE THAT’S HOW YOU FEEL WHEN IM AROUND

I KEEP YOU LEVELED FEET TO THE GROUND

LIKE BASEBALL I’LL PITCH YOU MY THOUGHTS OFF LOVE’S MOUND

LISTEN TO THE ROARING FEELINGS NOW THAT LOVE’S BEEN FOUND

& MY LOVE HAS TRAVELED THROUGH YOU LIKE THE SPEED OF SOUND

 

CAN

 

I TURN YOUR PAGES

CAUSE YOU’RE THE REASON I PEN THESE PHRASES

TO ME YOU’RE A WOMAN THAT’S IDEAL

IF YOU WERE WORDS IN THE DICTIONARY

YOU WOULD BE THE MEANING AS TO HOW I FEEL

 

I

 

I JUST WANT TO FLOAT IN YOUR BOAT

JUST YOU & I WITH MY HANDS ON THE ROW

OAR IF THATS WHAT IT TAKES TO FLOW

INTO THE VAST OCEAN CALLED YOUR LOVE REAL SLOW 

ONLY GOD WAS INVOLVED, BUT NOW I AM GLAD THAT YOU KNOW

HIDE

I CAN HIDE OR SPEND ALL THE MONEY I MADE OR HAD

BUT WITH THE LOVE I HAVE FOR YOU I CAN NEVER SAY THAT

YOU’LL BE SPENT OR HIDDEN & WITH THAT I STAY GLAD

 NOT IN THE MOB BUT YOU MAKE ME FEEL LIKE A MADE MAN

 

 DO

 

YOU BELIEVE IN THAT

 IF YOU DO YOUR TIME WITH ME WILL NEVER LAPSE

YOU’LL GET A ONCE IN A LIFETIME CHANCE

YOU’RE THE MUSIC & I AM THE DANCE

HIGHER LEARNING IS EXPENSIVE, BUT I AM YOUR GRANT

 

 SHOULD

 

 I CONTINUE TO SAY WHAT YOU NEED IN YOUR LIFE

OR STAY QUIET, OBSERVE FROM AFAR AS YOU TAKE FLIGHT

OOPS I FORGOT I AM THE PLANE TICKET TO YOUR NEW LIFE .

CROWNED

SHADOWS REIGN SUPREME

IN MY LIFE AS IF IT WAS A DREAM

BUT BELIEVING IN US IS MY THEME

LIKE MY GPA IN LIFE IM  ABOVE AVERAGE

I CAN WRITE ABOUT WHATS WRONG

OR SING A BEAUTIFUL NOTE AS IF YOU WERE A SONG

 

YOU

 

TELL ME HOW YOU WANT OUR FIRST DATE TO GO

WITH PURE REALITY OR PULLED OUT OF MY WALLET

A RESTAURANTE OR A PICNIC

I’LL PICK THE LATTER

& I’LL CLIMB ONE TO THE TOP SO YOU CAN SEE HOW MUCH YOU MATTER

FILLING ME WITH JOY & DID I MENTION FEELING FLATTERED

 

YOU’RE

 

ON MY MIND AS IF YOU WERE MY BRAIN

ON THAT NOTE THERE IS NOTHING TO EXPLAIN

I AM NOT A BANKER BUT MY THOUGHTS ARE DOLLARS THAT WILL NEVER CHANGE

ONLY WANT TO EASE YOUR STRAIN

HERE’S A KEY TO YOUR LOCK THAT CAN INCLUDE MY NAME

 

I

 

DONT KNOW HOW

YOU’VE BEEN LEFT TO WALK ALONE IN THIS CROWD

EVEN BEFORE YOU SAID HELLO

YOUR THOUGHTS ALREADY REGISTERED IN MY MIND SOMEHOW

VOTED AS THE MAYOR TO MY TOWN

WITH NO TOUCH OR SOUND

YOU’VE CAPTURED MY IMAGINATION & SAINTHOOD WITHOUT TOUCHING THE VATICAN GROUNDS

 IN OTHER WORDS TO ME YOU’RE HEAVENLY CROWNED

FACES

Why let thieves steal my appetite of love for you

When I am here in the warmth of your presence

Never wanting to feel the cold of your silence

Saying goodbye is sadness well beyond my comprehension

Knowing that you’re the path to my futures destination

Pure unadulterated jubilation

 

Tell

 

Me why I see a different you

Than what the world see’s of you

Even after you wake up in the morning

With a million things to do before the evening

Escaping from the thoughts that are suppressed by your life’s dealings

 

I’ve

 

Sat alone envisioning my actions with a smile on my face

Thinking about all of the wonderful places

That I can take you once I’ve made it

Then coming to the realization that you’ll love me no matter where the sun gazes

Because true love has no color, skin, or faces

 

I

 

Just say & do the simple things

Even if you don’t expect it from me, joy is what I’ll bring

Why feel all alone

Or have a drink when I know you’ll get me in that zone

Mystified by you and always amazed by how you make moves on your own

I’ll inspire you to step into your kingdom onto your throne

Because there will only be one you that could never be cloned
