about

Let life move you, transform you, and take you to the darkest space. Darkness may often be a blessing in disguise. Fear not the tunnel, and embrace the struggle, for at the end is a sunrise. Enjoy the journey.

This album has been a long time coming, and I want to thank every soul who has inspired me, guided me, and supported me along the way. This project is a piece of my heart. Handle with care. Spread with love.

Track Name: Rock Me (Intro)
Resistance is drowning me
My light is fading
I'm left speechless, breathless
Where are we going
Maybe my body knows
I'm doubting...
My mind's cloudy
But I say yes

You dance upon me
Mirroring wave to shore
These ebbs and flows...they leave me
Craving more
Rock me

My body's calling
Emotions evolving
I'm speechless, breathless
My vision is cloudy
Your pulse surrounds me
I need it...
I want it...
So I say yes

You dance upon me
Mirroring wave to shore
These ebbs and flows...they leave me
Craving more
Rock me

Hold me
Touch me slowly
Gentile kiss
Baby I need this
Passion is growing
Don't stop, keep going
Is this a sin?
Baby when you rock me
You unlock me
And it feels so good when I let you in
Track Name: Next
I'm so fed up with this bullshit
All the lies you always tell
Something told me to be cautious
Not to love you, but I fell
In so deeply, no one saved me
Now I feel like raising hell
So I will...

I’m so over it…(echo)
I'm chucking my deuces, bet
You're so dead to me...I'm on to the next...

Now please don't call me and don't text me
Please delete me from your phone
I'm not down for future meet ups
Boy you've turned my heart to stone
I don't care bout how you love me
I would rather be alone
Than with a boy who always cheats
I'll do better on my own

I’m so over it…(echo)
I'm chucking my deuces, bet
You're so dead to me...I'm on to the next...


You know I'm bold when I'm mad boy
And I mean what I say
It's gonna hurt me to walk but
I'd be a fucking fool to stay
You really don't appreciate me
Though you might give a fuck once I leave
I need someone who values my heart, my needs, my time and all of my being
So for now, the deuces are chucked
I can no longer give any fucks
My time here is done
You're not the one
Don’t return my last text
Boy bye I'm on to the NEXT …
Track Name: Is It You (Possibly)
In my youth
I dreamed of possibility
I hoped for castles in the sky, just him and me
Early on, I knew one day he’d come
There would be others
But I’d know when I found the one
They told me stories of his face
And they in depth described his ways
They spoke of all the things to watch for
And gave me subtle clues… is it you?

Possibly
I mean, I’m just thinkin’ logically
You flow with me
What if in a perfect world, we are meant to be?
Possibly, are we just having fun?
Or maybe there’s a possibility that you’re the one

At first I doubted he was true
I doubted life I never knew
But now, I’m starting to believe
It’s happening so soon…is it you?
I know I shouldn’t be this anxious
But nowadays it’s all I think of
Hey, am I looking at forever?
Is that what you’re down to do? Is it you?

Possibly
I mean, I’m just thinkin’ logically
You flow with me
What if in a perfect world, we are meant to be?
Possibly, are we just having fun?
Or maybe there’s a possibility that you’re the one

They told me stories of his face
And they in depth described his ways
They spoke of all the things to watch for
And gave me subtle clues… is it you?
At first I doubted he was true
I doubted life that I never knew
So am I looking at forever?
Is that what you’re down to do? Is it you?
Track Name: Poetry (Album Version)
I feel the verses in his heartbeat
Couplets of rhyming words undress me to the white meat
Tingles down my spine...he makes my knees weak
Like warmed chocolate melting bit by bit
I think that I'm in love, and I like it

Is this how it feels?
Is this really real?
Tell me if it's real?
(I'm chained to lyric with no need to be free
Cuz he's my poetry)

His kisses are berries sweet upon my lips
A touch of pumpkin spice with honey...nice
Or am I only dreaming of this? It's bliss...
He's like music now, I hear it loud
Playing freely in my ear, and my ear only

Is this how it feels?
Is this really real?
Tell me if it's real?
(I'm chained to lyric with no need to be free
Cuz he's my poetry)

He's my poetry, he flows with me
We ride the rhythms in the waves of his ocean
Free...like birds in motion
I'm just hoping we keep blowing and keep growing
Like the trees we're steady toking and passing yet knowing
The poem is real... This passion that we both feel.
Track Name: 3AM
I hear the raindrops falling
It's 3am...I'm missing him...
I can't ignore the way my body's calling
It's 3am...I'm struggling
He writes the rhythm to my heartbeat
Without his touch I feel without a part of me
So what's a girl to do
when I want his body with my body

Ah... Feels so right
Ah... I love me all night
With my finger, I paint his face in my mind...all the lines
On a canvas between my thighs...

Candles lit, curtains closed
Me and myself...nobody has to know

All my senses reach a height, they’re on fire
It's 3:02
I roll a spliffy just to take me higher
I close my eyes and watch my dreams come true
Thinking about his touch makes my love come down
I have to fill the void when he's not around
So what's a girl to do
when I want his body with my body

Ah... Feels so right
Ah... I love me all night
With my finger, I paint his face in my mind...all the lines
On a canvas between my thighs...

Candles lit, curtains closed
Me and myself...nobody has to know

It's 3 in the mornin and I want you
So what's a girl to do...
Track Name: From Here
And so it is
And so it's been
I'm missing you
All over again
Though I try to escape
You call my name
And I'm lost
Lost in the memory of you

Thoughts of woulds, coulds, shoulds, don'ts
Too immature to let love grow
Wish I knew what I now know
And from here, where do we go

I'll never forget what could have been
And I'll always remember what was
Of all the courtships I've endured
You were the closest thing to love
And I still want you the same as way back when
And you claim to feel it too, so I'm
Going out of my mind...
Why didn't we fall in the first time

(I'm clouded by) thoughts of woulds, coulds, shoulds, don'ts
Too immature to let love grow
(And boy I) wish I knew what I now know
So from here, where do we go?
Track Name: Blue
You're like the sky at sunrise
Baby blue shining in my eyes
I breathe you in
Hairs stand up upon my skin

It makes me smile
To feel you
My favorite color
There's no other
Baby you're blue

Baby you're blue
And ain't nothing...no one like blue
Nothing...no one like you

Even when you get that mood indigo
I dance in your night when you're feeling low
In whichever hue you flow
Baby I'll go where you go

It makes me smile
To feel you
My favorite color
There's no other
Baby you're blue

Baby you're blue
And ain't nothing...no one like blue
Nothing...no one like you
Track Name: Letting Go
Plane boarded...no looking back
I’m learning to be okay with that
And maybe it hurts
But it's good for me
It's best that I set you free

Maybe you just weren't ready
Feelings getting too heavy
drove you away from me
I scared you
Where you didn't want to be
In my heart I cry over and over and over, but through it all
My pride won't let the tears fall

Why is it so hard?
I'm flying away and still missing you more each day
And the further I fly
The more you stay on my mind
Letting go, letting go, letting go of you
So easy to say
So hard to do

I still remember that final day
When we both walked away
Did we follow our hearts
Or will regret soon come
What have we done

Maybe you just weren't ready
Feelings too heavy
Drove you away from me
I scared you
Where you didn't want to be
In my heart I cry over and over and over, but through it all
My pride won't let the tears fall

Why is it so hard?
I'm flying away and still missing you more each day
And the further I fly
The more you stay on my mind
Letting go, letting go, letting go of you
So easy to say
So hard to do
Track Name: Letting Go (Interlude)
First impression almost perfect
With his charm he caught my eye
All the right words graced my ears
Never have I known this kind of guy
Silly me with my guard up
Turning men down every time
But this one was different
He wanted to be all mine
So I listened
Took a chance with my broken heart
He gave me what I needed
Honesty from the start
Though still bitter from the last one
I went with the flow
But when he kissed me
I learned the art of letting go

Then we touched
As we kissed, we caressed
In his bed, in his arms,
We made love, til the sun came up
We touched and we kissed
And caressed, all undressed
In his bed, side by side
And I let go of the darkness ..like sunrise
Track Name: Falling
White sheets, an awaiting game
Just like the spark
Before the flame
I feel my heat rising
I'm about to burn
Come kiss me baby...it's my turn
As you stroke these lips
My identity strips

Now I feel like I'm falling in water (I'm falling)
I don't wanna lose my ground
I'm falling, I'm falling, I'm falling, I'm falling, I'm falling
If I fall, will you catch me or let me drown?

Whispers wet from smothered lips
My sweat upon your finger tips
Palms massage thighs
While skin with grips
Shutters from movement
Of your tongue and sips
Mouth devours dots and dips...
My identity strips

Baby I feel like we're falling in water
I don't wanna lose my ground
I'm falling, I'm falling, I'm falling, I'm falling, I'm falling
Baby If I fall, will you catch me or let me drown?

Caressing me now,
above the brow
The pinch of a cheek,
the peck of a mouth
Bodies colliding like water to shore
I'm left breathless...wanting more

Now I feel like my world is evolving
A change I'm not ready to feel
But then you whisper those 3 sweet words
While you hold my hand so I know it's real
I know it's real
I'm falling, I'm falling, I'm falling, I'm falling, I'm falling
I'm falling, I'm falling, I'm falling, I'm falling, I'm falling
I want you; I know you want me too

Baby I feel like we're falling in water
Don't be scared to lose your ground
We're falling, we're falling, we're falling, we're falling, we're falling
And baby If we fall, will we catch we? Or will we drown?
Let's drown...let's drown in love.
