Be Still 04:09
Be still No need for the madness All the same No need for the blame Cooler heads Rise above Don’t jump just to shove Don’t jump just to shove Deep breaths In and Out You’re not the only one that it’s all about I know you may be running late But it’s about to escalate Said it’s about to escalate Oh brother tell me why Oh sister tell me why Just calm yourself on down Let time just pass you by Oh brother tell me why Oh sister tell me why Just calm yourself on down Let time just pass you by Go head get lost in your mind Right now got nothing but time Use it so you can unwind Get nearer to your sublime Get nearer to your sublime Don’t ya know you’re not the only Look around imagine the fun Ain’t sense in coming undone Ain’t no sense in coming undone Ain’t no sense in coming undone Oh brother tell me why Oh sister tell me why Just calm yourself on down Let time just pass you by Oh brother tell me why Oh sister tell me why Just calm yourself on down Let time just pass you by Weaving through lanes Two seconds from going insane Can someone please just explain Why I gotta sit and sit and sit Please don’t make me throw a fit Please don’t make me throw a fit Shouldn’t have left my house so late Now I’m sitting her irate The only thing to do is just wait The only thing to do is just wait The only thing to do is just wait Oh brother tell me why Oh sister tell me why Just calm yourself on down Let time just pass you by Oh brother tell me why Oh sister tell me why Just calm yourself on down Let time just pass you by Show em how we bring down Now as you chill out on this ride and set all your problems aside Know that there are bigger problems far and wide Just sit back and relax and make sure your mind gets on the right track Realize your not the only one who whips If you wanna get to where you going quicker you better find the mothership You can fuss and you can whine and you can trip But that ain't gonna get you anywhere Trust me, I swear Done that, I been there You thinking anybody cares Same location but a different destination Slow pacing, crawling Think of it more as stalling You don’t wanna go to where you got to get So chill out, just sit For real, be still

Come on get down Groove with my sound Come on get down Baby come get funky with me Come on get down Groove with my sound Come on get down Baby come get funky with me Where you wanna go What you wanna be You can be free if you choose Luci Give ya what ya want when it’s little that you have But you will have to pay if you take that path Promises of joy Promises of glee But your soul will never ever be set free Now you can take your chance And you can take your shot Just know that if you lose then you’re risking a lot Come on get down Groove with my sound Come on get down Baby come get funky with me Come on get down Groove with my sound Come on get down Baby come get funky with me How you wanna live Who you think you are Talent and a dream can only get you so far Tryna switch it up so you can get down Hoping it’s enough fortune to go around Think of the riches Thinking of the wealth But you know you’ll never get there by yourself Now you can get it quick and you can get it fast But deep down inside you know that it won’t last Come on get down Groove with my sound Come on get down Baby come get funky with me Come on get down Groove with my sound Come on get down Baby come get funky with me Come on get down Groove with my sound Come on get down Baby come get funky with me Come on get down Groove with my sound Come on get down Baby come get funky with me Get on down to get on up Fight the fight You know you better live your life Change the pace to win the race Get ahead Don’t listen to what they said Get on down to get on up Fight the fight You know you better live your life Change the pace to win the race Get ahead Don’t listen to what they said Get on down to get on up Fight the fight You know you better live your life Change the pace to win the race Get ahead Don’t listen to what they said Get on down to get on up Fight the fight You know you better live your life Change the pace to win the race Get ahead Don’t listen to what they said

Funky Lover 03:59
Sitting on springs, you watch Gotta give me what you got Pick up your heart, don’t change I really wish I knew your name Back at this pit where I begin Straight down this path of sin Don’t really know how this got started All I know is you’re an artist Will you be my funky lover Will you help me rediscover Those things that once were mine And I can no longer find Will you be my funky lover Will you help me rediscover Those things that once were mine And I can no longer find Lies, lust, mistrust In your mind it’s never enough In your heart you think you care but really you’re unaware Lies, lust, mistrust In your mind it’s never enough In your heart you think you care but really you’re unaware Ain’t nothing okay It’s alright Look out and I see daylight Ain’t nothing changed Feel the same Look down try and rearrange Maybe my vision was impaired Maybe I never really cared Should have thought my decisions through But my conscious makes me do what I do Will you be my funky lover Will you help me rediscover Those things that once were mine And I can no longer find Will you be my funky lover Will you help me rediscover Those things that once were mine And I can no longer find Lies, lust, mistrust In your mind it’s never enough In your heart you think you care but really you’re unaware Lies, lust, mistrust In your mind it’s never enough In your heart you think you care but really you’re unaware

An interruption of rhythm A straight up head on collision As I recite to my past to help me make a decision I really wanna move fast but know I gotta move slow Because my futures in tack but how do I really know Now I can switch up my lane or I can just stay put But soul brother number one told me to get up on the good foot So I stay on the good foot Oh yeah You can go back and forth and forth But do what you wanna ‘cause life is short it’s short Find your own way (ya way, ya way, ya way) Close your mind to what they say (and say, and say, and say) You can go back and forth and forth But do what you wanna ‘cause life is short it’s short Find your own way (ya way, ya way, ya way) Close your mind to what they say (and say, and say, and say) You gotta open up the aisle and close the gate Life can be so easy when you leave it up to fate No need to complicate the things you can’t change Look around yourself and everything’s strange Once you notice that, then you might start to grow But reach inside yourself ‘cause you never really know I said reach inside yourself ‘cause you never really know You can go back and forth and forth But do what you wanna ‘cause life is short it’s short Find your own way (ya way, ya way, ya way) Close your mind to what they say (and say, and say, and say) You can go back and forth and forth But do what you wanna ‘cause life is short it’s short Find your own way (ya way, ya way, ya way) Close your mind to what they say (and say, and say, and say)

You know I’m steady pushin’ Climbing through the bushes You know I’m on the edge So why you tryna push me Back in this dark abyss Filled with putridness I’m tired of doing this Being foolish Already knew this world was filled with obstacles I can’t control So when I can I grab a hold of something that’s stable for the aching soul There’s nothing that I can’t control So I don’t fold under pressure at all I’m just pulling back the layers that don’t let me evolve Put my chest up to the air Take a step to the stars As free as young me hanging off the monkey bars I was upside down Dropped my crown Snatched it back up So dogg give me pound I’m comin’ back around I had to do it son Let it connect to the rhythm of the drum

Needle Drop 05:25
Come listen to my 45’s Let’s have some fun and be alive It’s not about you or I Don’t think about what underlies Feel the groove, take a spin Take my hand and let me in Don’t you know I wanna hear your sound Now lift it up put it down, watch you go around and round We don’t need to do no talking now I wanna groove all day What do you say, what do you say Take me away I wanna get on up before I get back down I wanna groove all day What do you say, what do you say Take me away I wanna get on up before I get back down Let the sound fall all in your ears Let the groove move all through your brain Once you let it in it won’t feel the same Then you find out you like it you love it Let the sound fall all in your ears Let the groove move all through your brain Once you let it in it won’t feel the same Then you find out you like it you love it Yeah Let’s switch it up put on a long play Just wanna listen ain’t got nothing to say Give me all of your vibes, take me away A little blues, little funk and reggae Between your lines, feel confined Take the beat and start to unwind You don’t know how good it feels to me Don’t need to see when I can sense I can’t explain it don’t make sense I just know I wanna hear your sound I wanna groove all day What do you say, what do you say Take me away I wanna get on up before I get back down I wanna groove all day What do you say, what do you say Take me away I wanna get on up before I get back down Let the sound fall all in your ears Let the groove move all through your brain Once you let it in it won’t feel the same Then you find out you like it you love it Let the sound fall all in your ears Let the groove move all through your brain Once you let it in it won’t feel the same Then you find out you like it you love it You like it you love it You like it you love it You like it you love it You like it you love it You like it you love it You like it you love it You like it you love it You like it you love it You like it you love it You like it you love it You like it you love it You like it you love it Let the sound fall all in your ears Let the groove move all through your brain Once you let it in it won’t feel the same Then you find out you like it you love it Let the sound fall all in your ears Let the groove move all through your brain Once you let it in it won’t feel the same Then you find out you like it you love it Let the sound fall all in your ears Let the groove move all through your brain Once you let it in it won’t feel the same Then you find out you like it you love it Let the sound fall all in your ears Let the groove move all through your brain Once you let it in it won’t feel the same Then you find out you like it you love it You like it you love it You like it you love it You like it you love it You like it

Woke up a quarter past 4 Had a dream my baby didn’t love me no more And if that dream ever came true Girl I just don’t know what I would do I would probably go insane I would never love again I would look for something new But it just won’t compare to you I could be with someone else But I’d never be myself I could always look around but deep inside I’d just feel down Badu dada dada dada Badu dada da daaa Badu dada dada dada Badu dada da daaa Hopefully my dream don’t come true ‘Cause all I wanna do is be with you And girl I need you by my side Without you I just do not feel alive I would probably go insane I would never love again I would look for something new But it just won’t compare to you I could be with someone else But I would never be myself I could always look around but deep inside I’d just feel down Badu dada dada dada Badu dada da daaa Badu dada dada dada Badu dada da daaa
