Track Name: Ready,Set
Get Set You better be ready cuz’ a change is gonna come
She said boy, you don’t even know it but your life is already done
You got me steady holding a moment that you said was for sure to come
I’m patient but I’m done waiting for it I can’t keep putting my life on hold

Get set you better be ready


I can’t keep holding hands
if you ain’t going in the right direciton
If you ain’t going towards the promised land
I can’t keep giving you my time and affection
How can you even call yourself a man
if you don’t offer me no kind of protection
I’ll keep it short and hope you understand
I won’t give you no more love and affection


What I need you ain’t buying with money
spend your time to get some love from me
And she said, “if you love me baby You better straighten your priorities”
Everything don’t even hold a candle to the life that I am offering
Think fast better make your decision cuz my train is soon leaving

Get set, you better be ready.

I can’t keep holding hands
if you ain’t going in the right direciton
If you ain’t going towards the promised land
I can’t keep giving you my time and affection
How can you even call yourself a man
if you don’t offer me no kind of protection
I’ll keep it short and hope you understand
I won’t give you no more love and affection
Track Name: Your Man
I Gotta get myself together
I’ve been promising change for years
I know I told you I want forever baby
But I should have been gone | after the first few tears

If I’d been watching your weather
It’s been unpredictable for years
Shoulda told you no.. never, never baby
I could have saved myself | a whole lot of prayers

I wanna be wrong | but it hurts so bad
If you call this love well it’s the best I’ve ever had

Hold my hand | make me your man
Help me understand what you do to me

You make me feel like a man
When I got you lying next to me
Baby what I can’t understand
Is why you keep on leaving me

Is there a right time to say all the wrong things
Cuz’ if I never make mistakes | I don’t make anything
Track Name: Roses
I got this new scar for ya'
Got you running thru my veins
wrote down all these words for ya
but you can't hear what I got to say

Now it's much too late
to make up for time I didn't spend
So I'll take what I can get
And put my heart in the palm of your hands

You're like a dozen roses on valentines
I just didn't get enough of
with your colors so bold and beautiful
they just didn't last long enough

Started to blame it all on you
but I know it's not your fault
you're light was too bright for most to handle
now it's too dark to see at all

Your pictures they paint a million words
I just can't sing a song that long
