Track Name: Change Everything
Round’ 9am today | the sun decides to show me is face
He says get ready boy | I’m gonna give you hell
I’m gonna make you really miss her
I’m gonna make you wanna hug her & kiss her
But you can’t no more | so I will

And now sunshine you ain’t no friend of mine
The moon, he loves my company
Cuz’ he knows at night while she’s sleepin tight
I ain’t got her on my mind
then the sun, he changed everything

I love it on them cloudy days
where the rain comes in and washes my face
And it takes away the tears she made me cry
Then the sun comes out to play
says run along boy she don’t love you anyway
She told me that she’s been in love with me

But you ain’t got no arms to hold her tight
No lips to kiss goodnight
I’ll be damned if she don’t see
You’re out every night your heart won't love her right
Why can’t it be me
She don’t understand, you ain’t a solid plan
You got inconsistencies
The mornings you don’t shine, I’d be by her side
But it wont be me
Track Name: Perfect Body
Perfect body perfect face
Memories of you gon be hard to erase
This ain't workin we both know
Although it feels good it's only physical
I know you been told that you need your body to get a man
Truth be told, I need your soul to speak to who I am

Say what you need and I’ll take all the heat cuz I know its the easy way
You better stand strong on your own two feet or the world’s gonna have it’s way
You can be beautiful don’t need to try so hard
Just be beautiful the way you are

What you need baby I can’t give
But that don’t mean you shouldn’t fight for it
A little bit of / self respect
Get what you’re worth in your intellect
I know that you think your good looks gonna get you real far
But it don’t mean much when those good looks is all you are

If you’re looking for perfection | you sure are looking in the wrong direction
I’m more into who you really are | than who you can be tonight
Track Name: Feel Loved
I have been dreaming of this moment | and the things I’d like to say
But I never imagined my dream would see the light of day
We’re here standing toe to toe | ring on your hand, my heart on the floor
but that ain’t my last name that you carry is baby

Now what am I gonna do with myself
guess it’s just more years of torment ahead
but then you say

I’m sorry baby | I know it seems I did you wrong
But now I cannot leave him | cuz this ring here is a bond
As is our son That I gave your name
So that it could pass thru my lips every day
I hope that helps you feel loved – feel loved – feel loved

With all this news I’ve learned today | can’t say you look the same
I remember you more beautiful the last time I saw your face
I guess years will do that to you | I guess time will do that to you
And I’ll keep lying to myself cuz that’s how I’ll get thru

Now what am I gonna do with myself
when I know what makes you happy is someone else

Although my heart’s moved on | the fire still burns strong
But we ain’t here to make confessions
You’re right where you belong | so I’ll carry on
So let’s say goodbye for both of our protection
