Track Name: All My Tears
All My Tears
pushed away..like the sun at dawn..
falling down but try holding on...
wondering which way to go..
i cant believe u chose to throw..

why'd u have to disappear
our fate now seems so very clear
although i may never believe
your stole away my very dream
of love embracing desperately
i gave to u my very needs
and thoughts upon its hurtfully
i know now that i must now receive

love away so cowardly..
embracing fears that i could see
far away but oh so near
clarity of all my tears

why'd u have to disappear
our fate now seems so very clear
although i may never believe
your stole away my very dream
of love embracing desperately
i gave to u my very needs
and thoughts upon its hurtfully
i know now that i must receive
Track Name: Butterfly
Butterfly
Sometimes I feel like im outer space
In another world without walls to cover up my soul
If I could do anything, in this world of yours
Id take away all the blame and let my wings soar
Im wrapped up in a ball of illusion
And I cant wait to see this world from other views

Chorus

I wanna fly, fly like the butterfly
Just going high enough to reach the sky
I wanna fly, fly like the butterfly
Just flying high enough to see the light
I wanna fly, fly like the butterfly
Just going high enough to witness life
I wanna fly, fly the butterfly
Just going high enough... high enough

Sometimes I picture silhouette,
Through the basement door
shadows on the floor
those colors divine
I cant feel no pressure here
God is shining through
Winter breezes too
I don’t know where it started
Don’t know how to end
I don’t even wanna go back again

Repeat Chorus

High enough
High enough
High enough for me (High enough)
High enough to see ( High enough)
the light
Track Name: Compatible
Compatible
I like silver,
and you go for the gold,
You still can’t conceive,
the thought of putting up your clothes
You some and drink,
And I get a lit’l high,
Im too aggressive,
And you don't even wanna try.

Compatible..to do are we
Compatible,
Do you ever think about being free
Compatible… our love’s a shame
Compatible,
But who do I blame?

You watch tv,
And I’d browse thru the news,
(I wonder what’s on the tube)
I cook you gourmet,
and all you ever think about is fast food,
Resorts in LA, and im still all alone
(what time are comin home?)

I been waitin’ all night,
for you to come home..
but im still alone

Compatible…what do we wanna do,
Imaginable,
that we too won’t agree
Comapatible,
Our love’s demise
Compatible,
what a surprise
Compatible,
our love’s a shame
Compatible,
But who do I blame?

Compatible..to do are we
Compatible,
Do you ever think about being free
Compatible… our love’s a shame
Compatible…
Compatible…
Track Name: Paint Me A Picture
Paint Me A Picture
A stroke of colors in painted space
Materialize from what you see
Concepts and objects abstract the face
The pressures of what this just might be
The theory came in time on canvas trace
Duration within creations mind
However likely to formulate
The brushes perform concepts of life so…

Paint Me A Picture thats full of hope and bliss
Promise me the movement completes me
The ill paint you a picture of essential elements
That viewers only visualize when they open their eyes
To see
From starting point
We made the forms and shapes
Where images invoked implied
That many performers had subjects place
But never knew the expressions inside
Your contemplations on aspects of love
You never agreed that art was fair
So don’t walk away from the blessings above
Rather than leave just stay and share those

Paint Me A Picture that’s full of hope and bliss
Promise me the movement completes me
Then ill paint you a picture of essential elements
That viewers only visualize when they open their eyes
To see

A canvas of life and new seed

Paint Me A Picture that’s full of hope and bliss
Promise you’ll never not need me
And ill paint you a picture that’s always balancing
And the beautiful my gift to you is unconditional love
From me

A canvas of life a new seed
Direct from the light I see
A canvas of life a new seed
Direct from the light I see
A canvas of life a new seed
Direct from the light I see (oh painting a love, guess we are)
A canvas of life (yeah painting a love)
Direct from the light I see (I guess were painting a love)
A canvas of life (I guess were painting a love)

Paint Me A Picture that’s full of hope and bliss
Promise me the movement completes me
Then ill paint you a picture of essential elements
That viewers only visualize when they open their eyes
To see
Track Name: Break It Down

Track Name: The Dating Game
The Dating Game
And from the moment I saw your face
I knew id have to compromise,
I wasn’t ready for your honesty
That kind I saw when I look in your eyes,
And ever since you came my way
I gotta tell u that its brighter days...
It’s you who warmed my heart a flame
Didn’t think I could love again,
I wanna say it but im so ashamed
Your love has got me feelin’ so untamed
so baby wont you come and ease the pain.
Damn, I must be insane cuz you playin’

(Chorus)
The Dating Game
(but I want you for myself)
The Dating Game
(I don’t want nobody else)
repeat twice

And from the moment we sat alone
I didn’t wanna move too fast,
But I couldn’t help it when your lips touched mine
And baby why don’t you make this sh** last,
And don’t stop what you doing to me (don’t stop)
(Why don’t u lay down, I wanna see)
And just be gentle when u touch my head
(oh c’mon baby don’t make me beg please)
Cuz I never thought id meet a toy like you
You make me play for long, im never through,
(If I ask you one mo gin, baby I just wanna be in, but your too busy playin’)


Repeat Chorus

B-sect
I never thought id share your love
Cuz you too busy sharing others
I never guess I’ll share your love
Cuz you too busy sharing others

Repeat Chorus

just take me..
just have me…
Track Name: Glide
Glide
id like to be invited for a ride
please let me have a look and peek inside
there’s special things id like to share with you
so tell me I can glide then we’d be cool

glide, glide, glide…

im speaking physical but that’s not all
I find it to be a spiritual call
Lets take things to a higher mental plain
Just please let me glide, don’t say a thang

glide, glide, glide…
Track Name: Complacent
Complacent
it was a long time ago...when you fell in love
but since things have changed.. than what you imagined of...and although you've moved along..you seem to be in chains...it feels so strange..like your all alone

youve gone and done it all by making choices for someone to have it all
and now u feel you long for more than what you own
a part of you has gone
u dont have to be complacent no
cuz real should never be as so
it should take good care of you
and maybe...
u aint never had a chance to grow
cuz always been afraid to let it go
and simply love u...

and now ive come along..and ive fell in love
but things remain...like they always was
although i feel this way..i only want for you...to be as happy too and live your passions thru..but

youve gone and done it all by making choices for someone to have it all
and now u feel you long for more than what you own
a part of you has gone

u dont have to be complacent no
cuz real should never be as so
it should take good care of you
and maybe...
u aint never had a chance to grow
cuz always been afraid to let it go
Track Name: Patchouli
Patchouli
i put patchouli on my navel after I bathe in it
and when im feeling sorta kinky, I put some sage in it
theres not a place that ive not been seen with it
for it’s the essence of romance
and for that I just swim in it
i always get a glance

Patchouli patchouli
Patchouli patchouli

and when im dancing wit my ancestors
i put patchouli on the drum
to intense some other spirits
to join in on the fun
i slide patchouli on my dog
when I walk her in the park
and when I speak to the Jupiter moon
i chew on patchouli bark

Patchouli patchouli
Patchouli patchouli

U Make Me Smile…

U Make Me Smile Again, Im High Again In Love.
U Make Me Smile Again, Im High Again On You.
U Make Me Smile Again, Im High Again In Love.
U Make Me Smile Again, Im High Again On You.

Out Of Desperation, I Spark Up A Buzz
And In All Fairness To The Rule
Disguising What It Was In My Hands
But Yet You Knowin My Plan
Aint At All What It Used To Be
When I First Saw U in Your Sedan (I remember that, damn)
I Guess That Must’ve Been Some Hella-Fied
Shit I Put Inside Of Yo Pants
Because You never Left My Side
You Got Me Livin In My Pride

U Make Me Smile Again, Im High Again In Love.
U Make Me Smile Again, Im High Again On You.
U Make Me Smile Again, Im High Again In Love.
U Make Me Smile Again, Im High Again On You.

There’s Never Hesitation
Cuz When I Need You, Your There
And You Know Just How To Care For Yo Nigga
When He’s Losin’ His Mind
You Know I’ll Always Be There
Cuz I’d Never Find Another Love
As Quite As Good In Seven Lifetimes (lifetimes)
There Aint A Damn Thing That I can Do
About This Love I Have For You
Im, Fallin’ Deeper In Debt To You (your so damn cool)

(Musical Break)

U Make Me Smile…
Oh Uh Oh …

U Make Me Smile Again, Im High Again In Love.
U Make Me Smile Again, Im High Again On You.
U Make Me Smile Again, Im High Again In Love.
U Make Me Smile Again, Im High Again On You.

Track Name: The Fiction (Gareth’s Song)
The Fiction (Gareth's Song)
wish id took a photograph to see your smile in fixtur'd
upon first glance we felt inclined, to find the mind's encryption

conversation over wine with me, but u don't share the sensibility
we cant speak on possibilities
can we be free..
the fiction

when i opened up the door, surprised to see you standing
a wake up call then down the hall, was i assumed demanding?

and i don't know how to ignore (in me)
when life's embraced what i adore (and see)
how else would the moment end (if we)
would only share as one
the fiction

as you smoke your cigarette, i speak about the future
then you'd reply with words you found to say how much it suit cha'

we'd email and find the way to see
if freedom is the way to free indeed
or are we all just living life for need
is this the way?
the fiction

now as time has passed its way, ive lost somehow connection
what i cant figure out is why it always needs correction

did i arrive from outer planes (indeed)
i sometimes feel the inner core (im free)
but how much longer can i endure (or be)
imprisoned by the non-fiction
Track Name: Nothing More
NOthing MOre
all i wanted wasn’t honesty from u
but actions proved and nothing more
god im falling from this heaven i once knew
u gotta save me cuz i don’t know what more to do
I never wanted any charity to be
I never needed it for me
but now im locked inside this hell and i cant see
how long im gonna last this way i gotta be.. free

la la la la la la la la la la la
la la la la la la la la la la la

all i wanted wasn’t dis-sincerity
for that would prove for nothing pure
but all u gave is empty promises i cant use
and all the while i don’t know why i take abuse
i know there's happiness along the way
but happiness just ain’t today
u know u let me down just one too many times
i wait to see the day that love is on your mind

la la la la la la la la la la la
la la la la la la la la la la la

all i wanted wasn’t honesty from u
but actions proved and nothing more
god im falling from this heaven i once knew
u gotta save me cuz i don’t know what more to do
I never wanted any charity to be
I never needed it for me
but now im locked inside this hell and i cant see
how long im gonna last this way i gotta be.. free

Track Name: Infidelity (Unreleased B Side)
Infidelity
Temptation overcomes my loves for her
(and I don't know why)
Cuz I love her silly yeah
You’ll never be the one that I prefer
(Look into my third eye)
But I must say you thrill me too

And all the things ive been to you
I never wanna lose out on that shit
And all the things you give to me
You are the star in my dreams

You make things so hard
(you got me wit dat ass)
When im around you I fall apart
(fuck am I suppose to do?)

And I dunno what to do with my lovin im confused over you
You see me runnin all around you got me open im your clown
im your fool

You seem so confident I can’t let my feelings show
This infidelity, You know I cant go
It causes jealousy and I cant have that going down
If u wont let it be..
I guess you cant be around

Frustration complicates my changing moods
(and I don't know why)
Cuz I cant have both yawll two
But I never leave her so its bye for you
(oh baby don't cry)
But I still love you boo

But U dont what to do with your lovin ur confused over me
And I see u runnin all around Got u open its my town
I got you

You seem so confident I cant let my feelings show
This infidelity, You know I cant go
It causes jealousy and I cant have that going down
If u wont let it be..
I guess you cant be around
repeat

You make things so hard
When im around you I fall apart

repeat chorus
Track Name: New Beginning (Unreleased B Side)
New Beginning
lets try it again

sometimes im lonely what can i say
if only u'd be standing right here next to me
you'd see freely that
it would make our love complete

lets try it again
start a new beginning
and i dont wanna lose
what i know

(repeat 2x’s)

we've had so much love and laughter along the way

lets try it again
start a new beginning
and i dont wanna lose
what i know
we can mend
(repeat 2x’s)
