Track Name: Joy In Repetition
He like to frequent this club down up on 36th.
Pimps and thangs like to hang outside and cuss for kicks...

Talking to no one in particular, they say "the baddest I am tonight"
Four-letter words are seldom heard with such dignity and bite.
All the poets and the part-time singers always hang inside
Live music from a band plays a song called "Soul Psychodelicide".
The song's a year long and had been playing for months when he
walked into the place.

No one seemed to care, an introverted this-is-it look on most of their faces.

Up on the mic repeating two words, over and over again
Was this woman he had never noticed before he lost himself in the
Articulated manner in which she said them.
These two words, a little bit behind the beat.
I mean just enough to turn u on.
For everytime she said the words another one of his doubts were gone.

Should he try to rap with her? Should he stand and stare?
No one else was watching her, she didn't seem to care.
So over and over, she said the words 'til he could take no more.
He dragged her from the stage and together they ran through the back door
In the alley over by the curb he said tell me what's your name
She only said the words again and it started to rain
Two words falling between the drops and the moans of his condition
Holding someone is truly believing there's joy in repetition.
Track Name: Move
I told you seven days she's on my mind/ I think about this sweet, sweet thang all the time.
This little lady she's just so fine/ I wanna tell that she's oh so divine.
I wanna take you on this rump-shaking, hip-grinding voyage while I talk about this sweet, sweet lady, she's a trip.
I'm talking about the way she moves her body when we're alone/ Oh, my lord, it's something to sing about.
She got great legs, she got great body and don't let me forget that she got great style.
She makes me beg and she likes to party. She makes this grown man feel like a child.
She likes music 'cause she likes to dance. Her favorite tunes are those Square Egg songs
When I take her home and get her in the bed I'm talking about the way she moves.

She just move back and forth/ She just move, up and down
She just move side to side/ She just move all around

She make me feel like a daydream all right/ I think about her and I scream in sheer delght.
If this is wrong, I don't wanna be right/ She light up my life like the stars do the night.
I wanna tell you all my secret thoughts and talk to you in the language that grown folks do.
I hope you understand I'm talking about the way she move.
She got pretty eyes, she got pretty hair and don't let me forget she got a pretty smile.
I love to touch her thighs in ways down there. She make this grown man feel like a child.
She likes movies. Her favorite pictures are those with Johnny Depp.
I'm talking about the way she moves when we're alone/ Quietness is kept.

She just move back and forth/ She just move, up and down
She just move side to side/ She just move all around
Track Name: Hello Sunshine (featuring Antonia Jenae')
I got rain from the night before/ And it smothered the delight before
Nothing to be too excited for/ This is a feeling I try to ignore
The way these dark clouds, they decided to stay
I hope it ain't like this another day
I need some of your sunshine to come my way
I'm hoping that this feeling soon goes away
I'm hoping that this feeling soon goes away
I'm hoping that this feeling soon goes away

And I say, hello sunshine/ goodbye loneliness
I say, hello sunshine/ goodbye loneliness
I say, hello sunshine/ goodbye loneliness
I say goodbye clouds of lonely, I really wish you well, I wish you well.
Goodbye clouds of lonely, I really wish...

Rainy days, a dismal haze/ And the empty of it all sets in.
Emotional cloudy, and I've found that we're all a little soaked in.
Now what I need is a raincoat to select, to protect from clouds of lonely that pore down
I welcome my ray of sunshine, which is you, to turn that frown of mine upside down.
I welcome my ray of sunshine, which is you, to turn that frown of mine upside down.

And I say, hello sunshine/ goodbye loneliness
I say, hello sunshine/ goodbye loneliness
I say, hello sunshine/ goodbye loneliness
I say goodbye clouds of lonely, I really wish you well, I wish you well.
Goodbye clouds of lonely, I really wish...

Love-colored rainbows and now my pain goes to seek refuge in a brand new home.
It seems my day's a lot brighter and my heart's a lot lighter now that you're here to inspire these poems.
And I'm like rain, rain won't you go away and please come back another day.
The sun was shining, the clouds turned my life gray, but you're offered me a lease on a brand new day.
The sun was shining, the clouds turned my life gray, but you're offered me a lease on a brand new day.

And I say, hello sunshine/ goodbye loneliness
I say, hello sunshine/ goodbye loneliness
I say, hello sunshine/ goodbye loneliness
I say goodbye clouds of lonely, I really wish you well, I wish you well.
Goodbye clouds of lonely, I really wish...

Bridge:

Nothing like your love to brighten my moments.
Nothing like your love to see me through.
Love to love you, be near you - just to have you in my life.

And I say, hello sunshine/ goodbye loneliness
I say, hello sunshine/ goodbye loneliness
I say, hello sunshine/ goodbye loneliness
I say goodbye clouds of lonely, I really wish you well, I wish you well.
Goodbye clouds of lonely, I really wish...
Track Name: A Letter From U
Just what I needed was another lonely metaphor to tell you just how I feel about you.
I was searching through this hurting for ways to say that I just can't live without you.
Then came these syllables full of meaning screaming the honest truth to my heart.
There aren't words designed to describe the fact that I can't stand that we're apart.
So I just sit and soak up the feeling/ sobbing what I need is healing.
Words on paper can't fill the void/ left by the thief who came and stole my joy.
And I don't need a sign/ And I don't need a rhyme.
To help me pass the time sitting here waiting on a letter from you.

Just what I needed was another sad chord to tell me that I'm empty now that you're gone.
I was searching through these notes for a melody to tell to come on back home.
And I don't need a beat/ And I don't need no chords.
To take away all of these cliches and songs.
All I want is a letter from you/ So give it to me one time.

Just one

Just what I needed was another lonely dinner in the city at our regular table for two.
Food just ain't the same without you/ Now tell me what am I supposed to do?
Passion kisses from my Mrs./ I miss this like chardonnay.
Lips taste like wine/ Were all mine, but this is gone like yesterday.
So I just sit and wash away the feelings/ Searching for ways I try to heal me.
Intoxicants they cannot save me/ All I have is these tears here to bathe me.
And I don't need my friends/ And I don't need memories.
You can have all of the parties, momma/ All I want is a letter from you.
So give it to me one time...


Just one

Bridge:

Sitting here in this lonely room with only my conscious and silence as companionship...
And all I wish I had was one sweet, sweet letter from you...

Just what I needed was another lonely metaphor to tell you just how I feel about you.
I was searching through this hurting for ways to say that I just can't live without you.
Then came these syllables full of meaning screaming the honest truth to my heart.
There aren't words designed to describe the fact that I can't stand that we're apart.
So I just sit and soak up the feeling/ sobbing what I need is healing.
Words on paper can't fill the void/ left by the thief who came and stole my joy.
Will you just show me a sign/ 'Cause I have written a rhyme?
And I'm done passing time/ Sweet momma, all I wanted, girl, is a letter from you.
So give it to me one time...


Just one
