We stayed on the phone for an hour or something, My father spoke softly And told me that I'm doing just fine, well alright. Missed the bus by a second or two, I'd usually screw But today, it's ok I'm alright I'm alright And that's the most I have said in a while, With a genuine smile Training the mind got me feeling so light I ain't even trying to get fake deep Just been more mindful of what I release Oh, there's power in the tongue, Power in the tongue

My baby said he wants to be free But where does that leave me? Tried rubbing crystals and singing chants Ways I thought I could channel his heart But it just won't work for me No more On and off, we're on and off It's a mess Losing track of who this round Belongs to now If I tell the truth I'm holding you so I don't have to say Every night and day.. I'll have a table for one Deepak said detachment is the key To let go of who you used to be Still someone I vibrate on your wave I try to reprogram my mind But there's no change But it just won't work for me No more On and off, we're on and off It's a mess Losing track of who this round Belongs to now If I tell the truth I'm holding you so I don't have to say Every night and day.. I'll have a table for one

Breaking news at 6pm disappointed by government rich get richer as poor ones weep same depiction on every screen And it's like the whole world is running away from the burn Tell me how long 'til it feels like we're home? lonely too long tell me how long 'til it feels like we're home? I'm losing hope Conspiracies by theorists don't believe media sources live in fear that's what they want from ya, taught to hate ourselves and others And it's like the people are running straight into the hole. Tell me how long 'til it feels like we're home? lonely too long tell me how long 'til it feels like we're home? I'm losing hope.

You have blocked me in this place I can't get out But I refuse to let go I used to know you It's a shame it's different now The memories still so bold Mmm hmm... Going through these changes Writing new narratives That seep themselves into my soul And I feel like they know What it's like to miss you Lie at night and kiss you With closed eyes dried by your worthy hands Raindrops, minimal light, and Etta James Always the cure when you leave You show up out the blue, I cloud you with green This distant thing still haunts me Mmm hmm.. Going through these changes Writing new narratives That seep themselves into my soul And I feel like they know What it's like to miss you Lie at night and kiss you With closed eyes dried by your worthy hands Going through these changes Writing new narratives That seep themselves into my soul And I feel like they know What it's like to miss you Lie at night and kiss you With closed eyes dried by your worthy hands

Girls don't always sing about boys What if I wanna talk about suffering, In the earth the ocean plastic happenings? Would anybody listen at all if i don't parade in a bra only to get my point across I don't always think about boys but I hear love is the only thing worth fighting for as well as loving the same sex sanitary kits for homelessness Grenfell, mental health for all (Mental health for all) We'll go to school and get married and start a family and they'll go to school and get married and start a family the cycle continues, when we don't question what we're into We'll go to school and get married and start a family and they'll go to school and get married and start a family the cycle continues, when we don't question what we're into Girl's don't always sing about boys even though it's what sells and what's relatable I mean, who doesn't wanna cry? To a song about getting your heart broke cos she'll sing all the words that you never spoke or couldn't I can't always think about boys Cos I've been reading about: air pollution, sustainable fashion, learnt behaviours, why it all happens so I guess, I'll raise the issues with a nice beat behind me singing it sweet so you'll still buy me as I rethink the norm like We'll go to school and get married and start a family and they'll go to school and get married and start a family the cycle continues, when we don't question what we're into Girl's don't always sing about boys even though it's what sells and what's relatable I mean, who doesn't wanna cry? To a song about getting your heart broke cos she'll sing all the words that you never spoke or couldn't

Aunt Lisa said you can't come around here no more When we broke the bed she felt disrespected and all Confused Said would I ever do that to you? And in return I feel like I fool Now I walk for days with nowhere to rest my head Vape in my mouth but got a feeling that it might be dead There's no smoke As I reach in my pocket for my phone, There's no texts, there's no missed calls In the morning we can start We can start over, again Reading about trauma In our daughters Has got me shook I got things to learn, I got fears to burn til then I won't cook, a bun in my oven when I wanna get wet No matter how my guy protests On the third day, we shall rise again And come back around Been here before, kinda sick of myself But also quite proud It's hard, being at the mercy of man And dealing my cards with my wrong hand In the morning we can start We can start over, again In the morning we can start We can start over, again

Science 03:37
I swim with the unknown Soaked in love yet I roam Into another world where life has new meaning I'm free to float up higher higher right through the ceiling with you There's a time when we flew outside of our bodies Dressed in light beams To centre highly The love you poured out for me Came back to human form Then danced the night away Remember the blue Cadillac That fit so nicely, Playing tunes made to woo And silence the science formed between us as I woke As I woke As I woke My dreams don't have room for hope As I woke As I woke Even my dreams don't have room for hope I cried in Igbo Don't even speak my mother tongue But everyone knows, we cry in the same language It's strangely beautiful You don't feel so small I, had a time when my tears took shape in the ground And built themselves up, I could tell love personified stared me down The water turned to ice, The stares all that remained Now each sleep I revisit there And this scene here replays Never moved, left me clueless Fighting the science formed between us as I woke As I woke As I woke My dreams don't have room for hope As I woke As I woke Even my dreams don't have room for hope

Although we seem to have come to an end Wish you'd still treat me like a friend We move like lovers in the night Our shadows play by candlelight And oh, my solitude blues Are pining, pining over you My legs, open Missing you comes in waves Tonight I'm drowning To say your name without tasting To hear his words but not face him To wear a frown as the sun sets These are the things I most regret And oh, my solitude blues Are pining, pining over you My legs, open Missing you comes in waves Tonight I'm drowning

Threw a lock of my hair in The ocean To give an offering Signed a deal I settled for Insecure Now I'm feeling the sting Where we go, we don't know Just tryna stay on our path I've been here before Yet still end up on my arse But something's got to give a little Give a little, I know Yeah something's got to give a little Give a little, I'm sure Somebody told me that the prize is in heaven But what about living today? Do I have to die for some peace, Or a little bit of extra empathy Joni said You don't know what you got Til it goes away Where we go, we don't know Just trying to stay afloat I been here before Should know better but I don't But something's got to give a little Give a little, I know Yeah something's got to give a little Give a little, I'm sure
11.
After all you Put me through I Guess I'll turn it around You left your mark then Blew the spark but I Found my way somehow And I always believed I was strong Living like it's golden word to Jill And walking like I'm chosen always heals Well now that you've gone Don't come back Don't come back And now that you've gone Don't come back Don't come back

Threw a lock of my hair in The ocean To give an offering Signed a deal I settled for Insecure Now I'm feeling the sting Where we go, we don't know Just tryna stay on our path I've been here before Yet still end up on my arse Chorus But something's got to give a little Give a little, I know Yeah something's got to give a little Give a little, I'm sure Whats there to pray for How bad your life is Search for a reason Something to die for I know it's going to give in a little Stuck in the middle Never been simple. When you're just tryna give and be fulfilled and tryna live right And nothing in your path is tryna give way And you wake up every morning tryna get by And you're tired of just asking Where we go It's just hard to know, when it feels like hell on your own. I been here before Should know better but I don't But something's got to give a little Give a little, I know Yeah something's got to give a little Give a little, I'm sure

I'm losing hope We ain't known nothing more evident Look at the evidence Ordinarily deh deh Right now I cant stand the pressure Unsettling lack of deference Look at the grey I'll take the method from the madness If you just respect my name Respect my brothers when you let em in Respect my pops Respect the ends Respect the blocks Respect the levs Respect the joog Fob in pocket, praying better things I pray I pray I pray I reap beneath my losses Pray I pattern up my days I was there where them roads part Back road again, waiting for the day Inna babylonia I caught my first chance To bun the devil, smog breaking every chain Dopamine Don't deal with me here the summers cold man Oh to be Tell me how long 'til it feels like we're home? lonely too long tell me how long 'til it feels like we're home?
