Personal Storyteller

If I wrote A song for you would you listen babe, listen babe? If I gave you the melody would you sing it babe, sing it babe? If I wrote you a story would you tell it babe?

 

You don’t ever have to question my love, so I don’t wanna have to question your love We don’t ever have to question our love

 

If I pick fresh fruit from a tree would you eat it babe, eat babe? If I gave you water from a well would you drink it babe, drink it babe? If I gave you a blessing would you praise it babe?

 

I’ll be a storyteller personally personal storyteller you’re number one confidant (2x)

 

Yeah, you know I love you I’ll tell you stories sweet and true and a love story is me and you I’ll be your one and only girl we can make love on the edge of the world

 

I’ll be a storyteller personally personal storyteller you’re number one confidant (Your number one confidant)

I’ll be a storyteller personally personal storyteller you’re number one confidant (We can make love on the edge of the world) 

 

I’ll be a storyteller personally personal storyteller you’re number one confidant

Sherwood Lament

I knew I had to have you when I first saw your face

 

But you were committed, wrong time wrong place

 

You had another lover and I couldn’t compete but I gotta explain what ya vibe did to me

 

You were something special, The way you moved the way you talked you were so deep, made me weak

 

My mind said not to chase you and I should be ashamed cause If I had a lover I wouldn’t want the same

 

When two are in love, you should let them be, cause if his heart ‘s with someone else, he wasn’t meant for me

 

You’re not mine and I can’t deny Maybe a different space, another lifetime (2x) What if that woman was me I wouldn’t want nobody messin with peace (2x)

Youth (Innerlude)

When I was just a little girl

At my feet was the entire world

Thought I would get everything I deserved I had dreams as precious as pearls

Now I’m a woman, all grown up now Sometimes unsure, sometimes profound

 

Through life and lyrics I have found my truth Now I follow dreams from my youth

Youth

We use to bathe in clear water but that’s over now

We wanna go back to a time when we were young, we just don’t know how We’ve been sitting for so long we forgot what it’s like to be care free

We use to sing to sweet, sweet songs so true when we were young

But we’ve been sitting for so long, we’ve been sleeping for so long, we’ve been drowning for too long We’ve been sitting for so long, we’ve been sitting for so long, we’ve been drowning for too long

In our youth we conquered all the madness We had the sweetest songs to sing we blocked out all the sadness

Lived how life supposed to be, that’s the way it’s supposed to be, give the way it’s supposed to be, the way it’s supposed to be

 

In our youth to play our sweet sweet music again, again And if we had another chance we promise we won’t ever take it for granted again

Sister Hazel Eyes

I’d like to tell you about Sister Hazel Eyes Told all secrets, told no lies but no more since that fatal day in July

 

Heart was so intense, like every word she meant The girl that God lend, Now past tense

 

England’s best girl, long black hair a million stages, to stop and stare Using Desperate words, like she had lived a hundred years, through it all she shed no tears

 

I’d like to tell you about sister hazel eyes Told all secrets, told no lies but no more since that fatal day in July

 

Some may say she was right some may says she was wrong

 

They couldn’t leave her alone, or let her sing her song Now she flies in paradise, now she flies in paradise, now she flies in paradise, Sister Hazel Eyes.

The Other Girl

She must have a way, there’s just somethin’ ‘bout her 
The boys the boys always pass her way
Give her attention even if it’s minor
With me they don’t even look my way

She must have this thing because he really likes her he watches her as she makes her way
I wish I had that thing then I could be just like her and he would watch me the same way


There’s something about the other girl the way she moves through his mind
And if I looked like the other girl maybe I’d be his type

There’s something about the other girl the way she moves through his mind
And if I looked like the other girl maybe I’d be his type

She must have this thing (she must have this thing)
Because he really likes her (He really likes her)
He watches her as she makes her way (Watches as she makes her way)
I wish I had that thing then I could be just like her (I could be just like her)
and he would watch me the same way (Watch me the same way)

And he would love me. And he would love...

Miss Me

So you thought you had that girl and she was stupid she was eating out the palm of your hand

 

So you thought you had that girl but she was fakin' she sleepin' with one of ya mans

 

You was runnin’ round playing little games but I guess the jokes on you cause she was doin you the same now you wanna come runnin back to me cause you see what you was missin’ cause she did you dirty

 

Now you lookin all sad in the face 'cause you ain’t got nobody to play a fool

Now you come crawlin back to me asking if I still wanna love you

 

Got a dose of your own medicine When they burn you just tell when Cause I’ll be front and center with my finger on the trigger, and I bet you’ll need me then

 

Now you see what happens when you bring me the pain, ‘cause when they ask me now I don’t know your name You don’t mean nothing when you’re coming around Go paint ya face because you look like a clown

 

Paint it all over your face ‘cause you look like a clown, Paint it all over your face ‘cause you look like a (4x)

 

Hope she was worth it

Give a Little

I know you don’t like obligation
I know you don’t like standing up for a cause
I know you don’t like lending a hand to your kin
I know you don’t like when someone else is the boss

Chorus
But there’s a raging in us all and don’t cha feel and know that it’s bringing us down 
it’s obliterating and its not gonna stop 'til we’re all down

So do you think you can give a little of yourself?
I know it seems hard but try to help out somebody else

I know you don’t like to be the bigger man
I know you wanna sit and smoke til you burn your brains out
I know you can be a better woman
But to stand up to fight leaves room for doubt

But there’s a raging in us all and don’t cha feel and know that it’s bringing us down 
it’s obliterating and its not gonna stop 'til we’re all down

So do you think you can give a little of yourself?
I know it seems hard but try to help out somebody else 

Try to commit to something for once 

Hold your mother, respect your father
Don’t hate your brother, love one another
Pray for your neighbor, do em favor
Ya might need em later

Pray for your neighbor, do ‘em favor
Ya might need 'em later

Don’t be a hater and give a little of yourself
