Lyrics

“Always Waiting on You”

well I don’t know baby what you’re about, it’s always so unclear
and by the time that you figure it out, ain’t gonna be around here

we were just walking together
a feeling like this might last forever, yeah
and when I look at you
all I think about is what I’ll do
if I make you mine sun’s shining down
it feels better with you around, feels better, cause

I’m always waiting on you
but you never come around
this is what I’ve found
and I’m always singing a new song
that’s the way I play
you can go your way

that’s it it’s been too long
I treat you right but you be doing me wrong
and I’ve always had these eyes for you girl, these eyes for you
again I’m facing the same situation
how many times have I had this conversation
I think I’m losing my patience

well I don’t know baby what you’re about it’s always so unclear
and by the time that you figure it out ain’t gonna be around here

and now I’m gone
I said it’s been too long
and then I’m gone gone gone, cause

I’m always waiting on you
but you never come around
this is what I’ve found
and I’m always singing a new song
that’s the way I play
you can go your way

 

“Breakfast”

well it’s been some time since I’ve seen your face
and I knew was close to being replaced
while I was away a lot of girls I ran through
but I didn’t care for none of them cause I had you
I didn’t care for none of them cause I had you
six months every morning
I woke up, it was you I was longing
sometimes another bitch in my bed
it don’t matter it was you in my head
and yeah they’d want to get breakfast, and I’d say no
I think it’d be better if I just got my shit and go
I think it’d be better if I just got my shit and go

now I realize you’re all I need
it’s cold outside and girl you’re warming me
now I’m I’m finally back and all I want to do
is make you oh so happy show you my love is true
I’ll make you oh so happy show you my love is true
and if we give our loving
they can’t stop us, they can’t touch us
even if I don’t got a nice ride
it don’t matter as long as you by my side
and if you want to get breakfast I’ll tell you “sim”
there ain’t no girl in this world I’d rather have eating with me
there ain’t no girl in this world I’d rather have eating with me

 

“Can’t Have”

well once again I want to call you and I don’t know what’s brought this back, oh yeah
and if I dial I want you to tell me “I’m coming your way”
but I don’t want to take a walk or talk on the phone
I want you waiting up for me when I get home and baby

I want what I can’t have
even if it does me bad
although it seems things are out of reach
it’s what keeps me on my feet

finally I’m just going to slow it down and leave the madness behind, oh yeah
and as I do it there’s going to be trouble
I’ll probably want to rewind
while I’m living in the town I dream of spaces so vast
but I know I’ll miss the scrapers and the shadows they cast and baby

I want what I can’t have
even if it does me bad
although it seems things are out of reach
it’s what keeps me on my feet

a couple years from now I want it all
waves crashing no incoming calls
a bad girl and a home cooked meal
I can’t help it it’s the way I feel, cause

I want what I can’t have
even if it does me bad
although it seems things are out of reach
it’s what keeps me on my feet

 

“Be Grateful”

I hear a lot of folks they’re saying every day
that they got problems and there’s no way
but if we’d step back and unfocus our stare
we’d see our struggles just don’t compare
to the Lostboys walking with no hope
to all them treading water who don’t get thrown no rope

so what your wage is low and your car won’t start
the rent’s too high, a girl broke your heart

hey c’mon get real
you’re coming home to a hot meal
so quit your moaning with a roof over your head
be grateful instead

I hear a lot of folks they’re saying every night
at the end of the road they just can’t see the light
but if we’d break from the daily grind
new paths appear they come to free our mind
we’d conquer our fear by learning something new
and we could see our troubles just ain’t true

so what your wage is low and your car won’t start
the rent’s too high a girl, broke your heart

hey c’mon get real
you’re coming home to a hot meal
so quit your moaning with a roof over your head
be grateful instead, yeah

cause I seen how they live in Bolivia
they work all day, a dollars what they’re giving ya
I’m blessed and I’m cursed to be from this country
but after seeing that shit I feel lucky
in the City of God where I bought cocaine
I saw war, I saw pain
now when problems come and show their faces
I only kneel down to tighten my laces

hey c’mon get real
you’re coming home to a hot meal
so quit your moaning with a roof over your head
be grateful instead, yeah

 

“Enjoy Myself”

latley these days feel so short and the nights so long
and thats ok man I’m young, I got to enjoy it while I can
so don’t you tell me to arise before noon
cause when I get home I hear birds blown in my own zone
and every 10 pm I leave the house only trying to come back home
with something to bone and I know man, enjoy it while I can
so I’m not trying to hear Jay, hey why you never have a steady girl?
cause I got my whole life to find a wife but until that day

enjoy myself with this bad girl right here
enjoy myself while I’m sipping on this beer
enjoy myself and I’m going to live life like I should

sitting here with my boys, a fat 1/8, a few girls, and that grey goose
well what can I do but get loose and and see what I can pull?
well hopefully when I get in my Lac she’s sitting to my right
but if not I got calls to make at the end of the night
cause not too much worse than coming home all faded with nothing to hit
it’s why I keep one on call son, to see what I can pull
well 3am comes around and she’s a knock knocking on my door
she says “whats up Jay? I came to stay”and i’m like “hell yeah”

enjoy myself with this bad girl right here
enjoy myself while I’m sipping on this beer
enjoy myself and I’m going to live life like I should

 

“Front Door”

I look at the stars outside, they don’t look the same
but I done chose this path when I got on that plane
I just arrived, realized I don’t know a soul in this town
and I’m ok being alone right now but tonight I’m going to make my rounds

so hey girl what you say
you show me around your city
I ain’t never been here before
and later I’ll walk you to your front door
your front door

don’t know how the dice gonna roll or how long I’ll be here
cause I been blowing in the wind for more than a year
but surely there’s time to show me some things and for me to show you how I do
and since you opened your door to me my door is always open to you

so hey girl what you say
you show me around your city
I ain’t never been here before
and later I’ll walk you to your front door
your front door

so hey girl what you say
you show me around your city
I ain’t never been here before
and later I’ll walk you to your front door
your front door

 

“Feels Good”

all of a sudden the day has come
I feel it’s time to go home
Caribbean nights filled with rum
countless days I’ve roamed
it’s time to start a life
whatever that means
I can’t go back to the clouds right now, no
I need the sun and sea

cause I set out on the road to get away from
all the monotony
I found the answers to a lot of questions
won’t pretend I don’t see

and now that I’ve lived my dreams
it’s time to dream up some more
let’s see what my two hands can do
work them until their sore
you can live your life
just working for pay
money don’t make the man I swear, no
I don’t care what they say

cause I set out on the road to get away from
all the monotony
I found the answers to a lot of questions
won’t pretend I don’t see

it feels so good up in here
it feels so good seeing clear
it feels so good on the rise
it feels so good on the other side

 

“Open Your Eyes”

spent a lot of time on college
but didn’t gain too much knowledge
other than how to turn an ounce to a pound
then they gave me this piece of paper
that tells the world I’m much safer
to interview me and give me a job

open your eyes
open your eyes

everybody brainwashed by dollars
rich people dwelling on their problems
poor folk, they got a smile on their face
insight came from roads traveled
the rope on my wrists unraveled
now I look up, I see no ceiling, just sky

open your eyes
open your eyes

so I think I might pack my bags
find a new place to land
where all the people ain’t so confused
there I’ll have a brand new start
to try to do my small part
to make this world a better place

open your eyes
open your eyes

 

“Soothe my Soul”

oh whoa oh whoa, oh whoa hell yeah
pretty little darling come and soothe my soul again
oh whoa oh whoa, oh whoa hell yeah
pretty little darling come and soothe my soul agian

crashing waves and falling stars
all may pass but nothing can tear us apart
through times unseen, through the end of days
while others may tremble baby, I’m going to tell you it’s going to be ok
it’s going to be ok, it’s going to be ok
I want to see you smile, it’s going to be ok
it’s going to be alright, cause baby tonight

oh whoa oh whoa, oh whoa hell yeah
pretty little darling come and soothe my soul again
oh whoa oh whoa, oh whoa hell yeah
pretty little darling come and soothe my soul agian

jump up in my mind my baby
I’m gonna take you on a trip, a trip around the stars
don’t worry about being late my baby
you’ll want to spend forever, where we, where are

he was red with horns and he cast me down
he said it’d never work but look what I’ve found
and you set me free with your sweet spell
please hold my heart cause you do it so well
you do me so well, you do me so well
I’m going to do you the best baby, cause you do me so well
you do me so well, you do me so well
ha hoooo, you do me so well

pretty little darling come and soothe my soul again
oh whoa oh whoa, oh whoa hell yeah
pretty little darling come and soothe my soul agian
pretty little darling come and soothe my soul again

 

“Work Things Out”

I know what you want
I feel it in the air
to you this is real life
to me it’s just truth or dare
but that don’t mean you can go away
just because I’m not ready
there’s some shit I got to do
before I give my soul to you

so let’s just work things out
let’s just work things out
so i can take my journey south
I know you got to stay here
but in December I’ll be waiting down there

now me and you in Brazil
at your new house we can chill
until I find my spot on the beach
the hostel’s not out of reach
and we could have us a couple children
still keeping a joint to burn
living a beautiful simple life
away from the struggle and the strife

so let’s just work things out
let’s just work things out
so I can take my journey south
I know you got to stay here
but in December I’ll be waiting down there

 

“I’m Sorry Seattle”

I’m thinking about rolling southbound I-5
rain’s hitting my window it’s going to be a long ride
the sky’s so grey, today it never got light
man I love this city, I want it out of my sight, oh yeah, cause

I’m sorry Seattle
you’ve been good to me
and now you set me free
it’s time for me to leave here
before I’m brainwashed too
just like you and you and you

a camera on the corner is catching my plates
nobody looks you in the eyes now, too busy texting away
we’re moving backwards and we don’t even know
our ways they’re getting, out of control, yeah, yeah, oh yeah

well I know of a place where the people care
about the seeing the sunset not the clothes you wear
when I arrive and I build my place
a smile, going to stay on my face, cause

I’m sorry Seattle
you’ve been good to me
and now you set me free
it’s time for me to leave here
before I’m brainwashed too
just like you and you and you

now I’m down south smoking but I’m staying on track
morena with me, she got a lot of back
the sky’s so blue, seem like it’s never going to rain
and I’m living the good life, the sun’s killing my pain, oh yeah, cause

I’m sorry Seattle
you’ve been good to me
and now you set me free
it’s time for me to leave here
before I’m brainwashed too
just like you and you and you
