[Intro – Arlo Maverick] Uh Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah Yo Blitz Tell the waitress bring another one quick Cause I don’t give a fuck no mo Said I don’t give a fuck no mo Said I don’t give a fuck no mo I said… (Beyach) I don’t give a fuck no mo Said I don’t give a fuck no mo Said I don’t give a fuck no mo [Chorus 1X – Lee’On ] You or the world I got decisions I should make But I’ll save that shit for later, nah, nah, nah You can pour me up a drink You can pour me up a drink I don’t really wanna think right now, now, now And who said that I can’t have both Them people lyin’ Them people lyin’ And who said that I can’t have both Them people lyin’ Them people lyin’ [Verse 1 – Arlo Maverick] Just when I thought I Was up on the up Misery came and did not give fuck Could it be I Was playing pretend Dreamt of success Money I’d spend Buy Mom A house Fly Granny back home Kind’a cliché But it’s all that we know When I drink You’re still here Singin’ your hymns Praying I’m safe Praying I win You hope for the best Hope I’m not high There’s no hope in hell Your grandson would survive Without all this liquor Without all this lye To put it quite frank I would kill for that vice Robbed of my right Now I see clear Fear you’ll regret I regret I have feared Again I will ask What words can be said What passionate pleas can you offer to end? [Chorus 1X – Lee’On] You or the world I got decisions I should make But I’ll save that shit for later, nah, nah, nah You can pour me up a drink You can pour me up a drink I don’t really wanna think right now, now, now And who said that I can’t have both Them people lyin’ Them people lyin’ And who said that I can’t have both Them people lyin’ Them people lyin’ [Verse 2 – Arlo Maverick] Mornings I throw Up Evidence of Demons that torment my mind Face in the sink My Stomach it cries Every yell echoing why So scared to walk Alone It is what it is Sadly I’m driven to drink Driving me crazy Drove out of mind Man I bought a new lease on life Shit, I feel like a king when I’m drinking that crown Spend money like water I’m ready to drown Thirsty for comfort Maybe you’ll call me a drunkard Pointing repentance upward Hoping that God me covered Only he knows how I suffered Only he knows how I loved Her [Chorus 2X – Lee’On] You or the world I got decisions I should make But I’ll save that shit for later, nah, nah, nah You can pour me up a drink You can pour me up a drink I don’t really wanna think right now, now, now And who said that I can’t have both Them people lyin’ Them people lyin’ And who said that I can’t have both Them people lyin’ Them people lyin’

[Intro – K-Riz] Living my life Confused and surprised Running off a cliff with a blindfold On my eyes Desist and alive It’s a contradiction that I’m Running off a cliff with a blindfold On my eyes [Verse 1 – Arlo Maverick] With all my success You ask do I have the same fears I lost my granny and my wifey in the same year Better question is Did I shed the same tear Both left But my girl could’ve stayed here Is it safe to assume If she come back That she settled for my love Then I must ask Why must love be giftwrapped? With clauses See the musk of mistrust Makes me nauseous First she wonders like Stevie Do she need me Then she wanders like Stevie Hoping to see Lost the presence of my future What’s to live for? And my past is a bitch I’d rather Ms. More Spent years on a love that would not fight At the first sign of guilt’s trip It took flight Yet nights she ain’t here Just don’t seem right Not waking to her smile That don’t feel right [Chorus 1X – K-Riz] And I’m falling down (Falling down) When I’m alone I need more than this And I’ve hit the ground (Hit the ground) I’m holding onto nothing That’s what I have seem to found (Seem to found) When I’m alone I need more than this And I’m falling down (Falling down) I’m falling down (Falling down) [Chorus Tag 2X – K-Riz] Where do I go to? Who do I run to? [Verse 2 – Arlo Maverick] Am I trapped by her love? Or I’m chained by my pride? The fact that I shrug The campaign of lies Points to dysfunction I’m used to My heart wanna run But I choose to Stay in this mess Bet you’ll ask me How much more pain Will make me happy Well Love is blind But it’s deaf too And you won’t see its depth Till you have two Yeah I tried to move on It was too soon Cause no matter how beautiful She’s not you No matter how funny She cannot claim Thinking that I’m over Call her, your name Now my hearts out of tempo Now in limbo Kisses she blows Leave me exposed Kisses she blows Give my heart hope But only God knows If I’ll let go [Chorus 1X – K-Riz] And I’m falling down (Falling down) When I’m alone I need more than this And I’ve hit the ground (Hit the ground) I’m holding onto nothing That’s what I have seem to found (Seem to found) When I’m alone I need more than this And I’m falling down (Falling down) I’m falling down (Falling down) [Chorus Tag 2X – K-Riz] Where do I go to? Who do I run to? [Verse 3 – Arlo Maverick] When your hearts still healing Is it fair to Seek another soul To repair you What happens when it heals? And your hearts fine Will you higher their love Or keep’em part time Scorned by my love So she act up Now I gotta deal With the wrath of More than a girl Who gave the ass up But her mind can’t help But think she lacks of Strong and Independent Yet a break up Reveals her dependency To fake love To me she was more Than a rebound But I Fought every feeling that we found See I fought it though she stimulate sexually So much in common Her and I connected mentally But I fiend for the one who unrelentingly Plays the strings of my heart like a melody [Chorus 1X – K-Riz] And I’m falling down (Falling down) When I’m alone I need more than this And I’ve hit the ground (Hit the ground) I’m holding onto nothing That’s what I have seem to found (Seem to found) When I’m alone I need more than this And I’m falling down (Falling down) I’m falling down (Falling down) [Outro 2X] Can we turn it around (Turn it around) Put back together This love with you I found Can we turn it around (Turn it around) Make this last forever

[Verse 1 – Arlo Maverick] Since the young heal quick Should I endure more pain Sometimes I feel sick Knowing I own your name Two sides to every story Should I know your pain Affairs of the heart Maybe I’m your stain Unanswered questions So anger tampers my ration Not sure what you imagined But this convo gon’ be passioned Where do I even start No better place then the intro Alive and well But Momma might as well have been a widow Probably hard for you to hear But I can’t say that I care When she Needed a husband Tell me exactly where When I Needed a father Tell me exactly where Now you Seeking forgiveness Can’t say you’ll find it here Please forgive me while I hop up on this tangent About the milestones in my life You were absent About the Father’s Day cards I’d make in grade school But never had an address to mail to Now should I say anything That I can’t take back Think of all the debt That you can’t pay back Think of all the years You can’t play back Maybe its just better we Don’t say jack Cause Pops I can’t bond with you I got some trust issues And though my heart miss you My anger won’t give you I’m still pissed at you The very dismissal Maybe it’s’ best if you Yea, it’s’ best if you … yea, it’s best if you [Chorus 1X – Arlo Maverick] I found it in my heart to forgive But I can’t say that I’ll ever forget (Change of Heart) I found it in my heart to forgive But I can’t say that I’ll ever forget (Change of Heart) I found it in my heart to forgive But I can’t say that I’ll ever forget (Change of Heart) I found it in my heart to forgive But I can’t say that I’ll ever forget [Verse 2 – Arlo Maverick] Momma I know you love me And though I shouldn’t question it My heart is full of doubt From the many times I questioned if You wish you never had me Never met my father Maybe you’d be happy Maybe you’d farther Cause 21 and pregnant Wasn’t part of your plan With no time for assessment You ain’t wait on no man Your trials and tribulations No I don’t know the half Though life is complicated Now and then you should laugh See I avoided this discussion Cause truth is interrupted Percussions of assumptions They ricochet, repercussions I’m grown, no longer ducking Please have this discussion How dare you accustom Your son to dysfunction I know you worked harder So I could work smarter But have you pondered? And are you bothered With leaving me not physically Certainly emotionally Possibly why Grandma was so close to me Now should I say anything I can’t take back Think of all the years That you can’t take back Daddy wasn’t there But it don’t excuse that Why you rarely smiled And I barely know your laugh See mom You stayed silent So quickly I accepted That love is rarely public Guess my issues with affection Stem from only huggin you on holidays Sorry it’s one of many things that I gotta say … one of many things that I gotta say [Chorus 1X – Arlo Maverick] I found it in my heart to forgive But I can’t say that I’ll ever forget (Change of Heart) I found it in my heart to forgive But I can’t say that I’ll ever forget (Change of Heart) I found it in my heart to forgive But I can’t say that I’ll ever forget (Change of Heart) I found it in my heart to forgive But I can’t say that I’ll ever forget

[Intro – Oozeela] You’ve got some I’ve got none You’ve got some I’ve got none You’ve got some I’ve got none You’ve got some I’ve got none [Verse 1 – Arlo Maverick] Ravenous mind In the time of my childhood Hoping to fit in And maybe buy some fly goods Wants and needs might blur a bit Till momma buys coat Cause sure it fits School shopping was a nightmare As I passed the brand names that I might wear To me Everything was priceless But to mom Items should be priced less … Although fly like some blue jays Every time I asked for some new Js Momma gotta ask how we’ll pay rent Man, half the time she ain’t make cents I mean, why I gotta look old fashion Clothes out of style like I don’t know fashion Sikes is a good line Momma that’s good try How I’m spose to get chicks When I never look fly [Chorus Pt. 1] You got some money for the Nikes? Nah, Nah, Nah, Nah, Nuh-Nah You got some money for the Kool-Aid? Nah, Nah, Nah, Nah, Nuh-Nah You got some money for the Movies? Nah, Nah, Nah, Nah, Nuh-Nah You got some money for the Candy Nah, Nah, Nah, Nah, Nuh-Nah [Chorus Pt. 2 – Arlo Maverick] Waking up every morning thinking how will I survive (There’s more to this life than this) And we here broke But momma put in that overtime (There’s more to this life than this) Yeah Pops send money But it’s not all of the time (There’s more to this life than this) I should satisfy But the devils messing with my mind (There’s more to this life than this) [Verse 2 – Arlo Maverick] Good and bad memories Relate to my born day Roots reggae melodies Recipes that storied Themselves through aromas That were trapped in my clothes Shoestring budget But momma always coped Days leading up Drop hints like Trebek My birthday’s next week This is what I should get Pick out something fly Momma tell me put the shirt back Can’t afford that But she went and bought a Church Hat Pick out something cheaper The budget won’t budge Not even slightly Forget about Nikes No way to Safeway Mom baked rum cake And if I must say Better than a Sundae 5 school friends Limit on my guest list Mom’s list, endless! Family in the trenches Second cousins Going for seconds like they bought shit Came in empty handed Got the nerve to be obnoxious [Chorus Pt. 1] You got some money for the Nikes? Nah, Nah, Nah, Nah, Nuh-Nah You got some money for the Kool-Aid? Nah, Nah, Nah, Nah, Nuh-Nah You got some money for the Movies? Nah, Nah, Nah, Nah, Nuh-Nah You got some money for the Candy Nah, Nah, Nah, Nah, Nuh-Nah [Chorus Pt. 2 – Arlo Maverick] Waking up every morning thinking how will I survive (There’s more to this life than this) And we here broke But momma put in that overtime (There’s more to this life than this) Yeah Pops send money But it’s not all of the time (There’s more to this life than this) I should satisfy But the devils messing with my mind (There’s more to this life than this) [Verse 3 – Arlo Maverick] In December Instead of singing Christmas carols We was at my grandma’s Packing Christmas barrels I’m talking dish soap Deodorant and sox Flat irons No wonder why we have knots Can’t understand in elementary This fiber cylinder Is how they get to eat But momma gave a look And I sat right down I had more questions They weren’t said aloud How come my friends write lists of toys they wish for They out tobogganing But me, I’m indoors Tryn’a fill more With nuff to ship So we gotta pack it right So the contents fit But what’s the consequence As we send food south To our family in Jamaica Our mouths go without But grandma passed the sorrel And tell me not to quarrel Just hush God will provide for us [Chorus Pt. 1] You got some money for the Nikes? Nah, Nah, Nah, Nah, Nuh-Nah You got some money for the Kool-Aid? Nah, Nah, Nah, Nah, Nuh-Nah You got some money for the Movies? Nah, Nah, Nah, Nah, Nuh-Nah You got some money for the Candy Nah, Nah, Nah, Nah, Nuh-Nah [Chorus Pt. 2 – Arlo Maverick] Waking up every morning thinking how will I survive (There’s more to this life than this) And we here broke But momma put in that overtime (There’s more to this life than this) Yeah Pops send money But it’s not all of the time (There’s more to this life than this) I should satisfy But the devils messing with my mind (There’s more to this life than this)

[Verse 1 – Arlo Maverick] Mind if I Buy you a drink and share a thought or two From the time I got off stage I been watching you Pretend like you ain’t notice But I’m onto you Is it cool if we move to somewhere optimal Where we can talk and not yell Kiss and not tell I know it’s pretty forward But I cannot help Buzzed off these shots If you cannot tell By the smile in your eyes You’re turnt up as well Can I be honest Sincerity begs clarity Music so loud I can tell you barely hearing me That’s why clubs ain’t a place a brother care to be Barely hear yourself think So Similarities Can be hard to identify In fact I’m petrified … why you laughin’ girl It’s all new But there’s something bout you That makes me curious to know more about you [Chorus 1X – Fendercase] I don’t wanna live not knowing If or who or what you could mean to me (Could this be?) I don’t wanna live not knowing What this precious moment could lead to be (Could this be?) [Verse 2 – Arlo Maverick] Could two complete strangers Randomly meet In a place so fake And actually be More than one night But the more that we dream of How can we be certain if certain we’ve never seen love Would a kiss determine What minds can’t confirm Should we both go first? Or should I wait to return Perfect moments We complicate with doubt Afraid to ruin We dare go without, nah Second kiss Passionate as the initial one Just hoping that this little fun Don’t produce a little one These stolen moments We need not police them Guilty pleasures We’d kill to conceal them So surreal We question if we’re dreaming Hours of kissing Passion beyond reason Even breathings an afterthought If life interrupts Do we have to stop [Chorus 1X – Fendercase] I don’t wanna live not knowing If or who or what you could mean to me (Could this be?) I don’t wanna live not knowing What this precious moment could lead to be (Could this be?) [Verse 3 – Jaide] Bet you’re busy at work But I miss you already My bed feels like a prison In fact it’s still messy Same spot you left me Patiently waiting To help me pass the time My minds replaying Last night As if to question my sanity If all I have is memories Maybe it’s a fantasy Me at the edge of the bed My legs spread Kissin my inner thighs My hand against your head Legs trembling Perhaps a kiss’ll settle things The arch in my back is a smile as you’re welcomed in Inaudible words So you listen to the rhythm Of breaths I exhale Wait for my permission As I lay here I wish we stayed here For that I’d trade years Cause my hearts afraid there’s No way we can remake last night and what not Never mind I’m rambling Call me when you get off [Chorus 2X – Fendercase] I don’t wanna live not knowing If or who or what you could mean to me (Could this be?) I don’t wanna live not knowing What this precious moment could lead to be (Could this be?)

[Verse 1 – Arlo Maverick] Please forgive me For doubting the love you’ve given me But I remember vividly What these chicks did to me Don’t mean to pigeonhole But most women I know Think they’re in control And miss the pick and roll You give, then he goes He pivots, the pinnacle He won’t give up rings But you give up your goals Then when given gold You turn cynical Mind saying it’s bull So every single soul With some chivalry Dismissed cause they timidly Heart don’t want tranquility Opting for soliloquies You will-fully Accept his polygamy Then complain about his litany But girl is you kiddin me You deliberately Search for delinquency Heart lacking in dignity Eventually you’ll limit me Of course I’ll be a scrub boo With too many toos Too skinny Too quiet Too little tattoos [Chorus 2X – K-Riz] Too far to reach you Too real to need you Too good to be true Too many toos [Verse 2 – Arlo Maverick] To you it may seem stupid But my heart just won't go through it Ignoring would be foolish Specially when I've just been through this Of course we've gotten close Of course a bonds created Our late night conversations Moments like that are sacred They’ll scar my memory For better or worse And though my heart is falling for you I just can't stay the course You say I've never given us A chance And limit us But giving up we interrupt The image of us giving fucks About each other Being distant and icy If ever scorned Fucking my friends just to spite me Being privy to the skinny Of how love is so iffy I'd be silly not to quilly If I really have it in me Right now it’s not work But what happens when it is Will you seek other men With "advice" to give Then of course I’ll be a scrub boo With too many toos Too plain, too nice Generous to a fault boo [Chorus 2X – K-Riz] Too far to reach you Too real to need you Too good to be true Too many toos [Verse 3 – Arlo Maverick] There’s no greater evidence of intellect’s curfew Then the fact my mistakes Get mistaken as virtues That moment you met me in I live that every night So prepare for a life Of long and lonely nights Lowly in its heights As you wrestle with images Of me being intimate With women that I’m pictured with Then you’ll start to question Am I fearless of careless Deserving novelty Wanna be prodigy That passion of our first night That felt so nice Why do you only hear it in the songs I write Newness that’s my fuel miss You crave routine A man who’ll mow the lawn On the Sundays you clean Pretty soon you’ll have to lie And say you don’t mind The fact that I cancel reservations all the time Then of course I’ll be a scrub boo With too many toos Too manic, too selfish Too good to be true

[Verse 1 – Arlo Maverick] I was barely one When you came from Jamaica Momma working two jobs So you came to raise her One and only son Forget the daycare Far too costly And kids never played fair Mom was always working Cause bills kept piling Plus she had to send money back to the Island Maybe that’s why I spent most of my time with you Sing a couple hymns from a book that’s blue Memba being teased by them kids at school I came home and asked why they were so cruel You held me and told me Forgive them Soup They know not what they have done to you Hurt cause I thought you had took their side Peckish for destruction and they took my pride Proud like my father but you showed me strength Is the courage not to fight even when you can [Chorus 1X – Timothy Noel] Now I’m a man And I see what I really had I wish I saw then What I see now in my hindsight So I’m hurting I’m hurting Inside [Verse 2 – Arlo Maverick] Sunday morning we at Church Back that evening Rest of the week Choir and prayer meetings Needless to say With Mom at work I tagged along with Grandma And was always church It was here I met instruments and melodies Picked it up so easy That I figured it was meant for me Eventually words would become my muse Farfetched dream But you’d still approved Didn’t disregard what I hope to be Only thing you asked That I get my degree Kept my promise And got my degree But in coming of age You saw less of me Maybe that’s the reason You ain’t tell a soul That you were fighting cancer By the time we’d know The cancer’s growth Gave you months to live Where was my time from before to give? [Chorus 1X – Timothy Noel] Now I’m a man And I see what I really had I wish I saw then What I see now in my hindsight So I’m hurting I’m hurting Inside [Verse 3 – Arlo Maverick] How could I be selfish To someone so selfless To gain a dollar You could say I lost my senses So caught up with my music I would visit you less Taking you for granted Never figured you’d get Old or even ill But mortalities real As I wrestle with these thoughts It’s distracting me still You introduced me to music Then I left you to wife it Now thing I love most Now symbolizes Pain and regret And the reason that I’m lonely The reason why my loved ones No longer can hold me Wish you were here But then you would suffer Sadly it took me This to discover The meaning of scriptures You read to me Or the hymns you would sing Just to remedy When I questioned your illness You said it’s his plan Even though my heart agrees I can’t understand [Outro – Timothy Noel] Can you hear me I’m saying I love you Can you hear me I’m saying thank you Can you hear me I’m saying I miss you And I’m hurting Inside

[Chorus 2X – Nigel Williams] Oh The love is gone If you look for me Then you will see That I’m already gone [Verse 1 – Arlo Maverick] Baby there’s something on my mind Do you mind if we talk I’m prolly totally off base Nonetheless we should talk I want to chalk it up to nothing The product of insecurity There’s things I’m seeing lately That tell me you prefer to be [Verse 1 – Adora] Where’s this coming from Is this about last night? I told you it was my girl [Verse 1 – Arlo Maverick] Oh, is that right You said it was your Mother Which leads me to believe Well I Wanna believe I’m not being deceived Noticed you living in a vacuum More time in the bathroom You act new Defensive when I’d ask you To make sense of these scents And dollars spent on clothes Foreign smells to my nose I question if you pose In your lingerie collection The one that has grown But never do I view Cause you’re never in the mood Spent money I ain’t have to buy a ring for you Don’t even know his name But I envy dude Ain’t dressed like this in forever Why him To entice him Do you like him Why him [Verse 1 – Adora] Please Don’t accuse me There’s no him And there’s never been Anyone or anything That’s ever been close to this [Verse 1 – Arlo Maverick] See I was hoping for honesty But obviously you’ve consciously Made the choice to lie to me But out of curiosity What is it you gain From these lies you tell Was it greener or just due Cause you can’t hide your smell [Chorus 2X – Nigel Williams] Oh The love is gone If you look for me Then you will see That I’m already gone [Verse 2 – Adora] I’m last person you wanna speak with But I can no longer hurt you with all these secrets And I should’ve come clean When you asked me But a future with you gone was looking at me Please understand that I never meant to hurt you I love you more than life That’s why I learnt to Accept that your work came before us But I wish the trappings of success offered more love Cause now we barely see each other And we never talk And that ain’t like you And this ain’t like us [Verse 2 – Arlo Maverick] So you justify your actions Complaining that I’m absent Like your sexual advances Might’ve never happened if [Verse 2 – Adora] How dare you resent me When this house was empty So many nights you left me And let loneliness tempt me You take me for granted Yet I match your work Accepting that I’m second And your music is first I get you on the come up But these conversations come up Cause we always cancel plans Cause something else will come up We sposed to be a team But I feel it’s only me Whose trying save our love Cause you’d Much rather be Writing songs for your fans But its not them its me Vying for your love No its not them its me But no, it’s all about you Cause you’re so fucking selfish And to think I even questioned If I’d kept it [Chorus 2X – Nigel Williams] Oh, The love is gone If you look for me Then you will see That I’m already gone

[Intro 2X – Oozeela] Maybe Tomorrow I’ll do therapy but not today I got some marijuana smoke I wanna blow away Maybe Tomorrow I’ll do therapy but not today I got some marijuana smoke I wanna blow away [Verse 1 – Arlo Maverick] Do you mind if I have a little peace A little bit of time to myself while I piece The thoughts you have shattered by drilling for answers You say I have buried beneath Maybe you’re hoping to see Me sitting there in that seat But I’ve taken the break I’ve been meaning to take So today its just me and my weed Bet you’ll say we were getting so close So Something’s are best left on their own No Poking for truths you say that I hide Maybe its best I don’t know, so Maybe its best if we leave Those demons before they don’t leave And keep me up late to contemplate faith I just started getting some sleep … I can’t believe I bother with … this therapy’s monotonous … we all got our problems bitch … so I don’t feel like talking shiiiiiit [Chorus 1X – Oozeela & Muta Mouraine] Take another drag And blow it out And blow it out And blow it out Take another drag And blow it out And blow it out And blow it out Take another drag Inhale it in Exhale it out As I take it in And let it out Inhale it in Exhale it out As I take it in And let it out [Verse 2 – Arlo Maverick] Remind me again why you care If I died today would your ass even care Nah, I’d just be a dummy who gave you his money So you could just sit in that chair Judging the things that I have done Correct me if I may be wrong But if you’re only human and I’m only human How can right all my wrongs Annoyed by the questions you ask Whoa Do you need to know intimate facts No How did I feel? Do I feel loved? Your questions often make me mad, so What are you hoping to find I feel like your wasting my time Leave me alone I don’t wanna talk Let me just settle my mind … I won’t be coming back again … If I need help I’ll call a friend … Cause all you do is take my ends … But these cuts you can never mend [Chorus 1X – Oozeela & Muta Mouraine] Take another drag And blow it out And blow it out And blow it out Take another drag And blow it out And blow it out And blow it out Take another drag Inhale it in Exhale it out As I take it in And let it out Inhale it in Exhale it out As I take it in And let it out [Verse 3 – Arlo Maverick] Probably figured that I’m late I’m entitled to a break If my Gram was here today She’d say boy where is your faith See I’m losing my religion Cause her ears ain’t here to listen Thinking while I’m sippin How’d she move in this position Promised I’d stop smoking But right now its all I got Promised I’d stop drinking But right now it’s all I got Promised I’d do church But all they do is judge Can’t promise forgiveness Then how can they promise love [Outro 2X – Oozeela] Maybe Tomorrow I’ll do therapy but not today I got some marijuana smoke I wanna blow away Maybe Tomorrow I’ll do therapy but not today I got some marijuana smoke I wanna blow away

[Verse 1 – Arlo Maverick] Is it wrong that I envy Statuses of pregnancies The density of jealousy Hardened cause I’ll never be Could this be remedied Or maybe it’s my destiny Possibly some penalty For putting her love secondly Maybe it’s my father’s sins Haunting his next of kin Should I bother with What if I fathered kids What have I committed But thought it was omitted Will haunt my son or daughter Or God forbid their children Never say never But however Will I ever have successors Or merely be a picture on my mother’s dresser Tired of fielding questions Marriage and carriage Am I ready to be a husband Ready to be a parent Everybody’s answer You’re not getting younger So I just pander And give any number They questioning my manhood With statements like Seedless and nearly 30 No prospective wife [Verse 2 – Arlo Maverick] Some say I’ll never marry cause my girl ain’t got that it factor But when your mistress is success I mean does it matter Hopeless romantic who disguises it with antics Wear my heart upon my sleeve But still cover it with jackets Food for thought Why should we ever marry? When every wise woman brainwashed by Tyler Perry Do bad all by myself Don’t need your voluntary Good deeds Which are often temporary I don’t fear failure I fear I’ll fail her Fear she won’t wait here And leave for what’s safer Leave for stability Some dude with an 8 to 4 Benefits and a salary that’s making sure Bills get paid Cause I remember days Momma had to slave So rent wasn’t late I’d die before you face What she went through Cause my life without you’s an instrumental [Verse 3 – Arlo Maverick] See I loved my Pops But could never justify His absence in my life If he just had tried Financial instability Feeling he’s not ready yet Not sure mom’s the one Hadn’t finished college yet That’s all he offered When I questioned his absence That’s all she offered When I questioned her ration Where was my say Did it matter at all Such a major decision Only you made the call Maybe guilt got the best Either way that some gall See that burden of proof Was a child I would call My son or my daughter Be it mine or it his See it’s hard to empathize With the horrors that live In your mind Taking the life of your first born I wanna be there for her That’s where I’m torn Could I learn to forgive And let it all go If the tables were turn Could she swallow Her pride If I ever had a side chick That carried a child Baring my likeness I imagine she’d call my ass trifling But because I was gone I’m supposed to wife it

[Chorus – Arlo Maverick] You keep on tellin’ me I changed But I can’t say that I care (Can’t) Can’t say that I care (Uh-Uh) Can’t say that I care You keep on tellin’ me I changed But I can’t say that I care (Can’t) Can’t say that I care (Uh-Uh) Can’t say that I care no more [Verse 1 – Arlo Maverick] Life is what you make it Yet so many dream Sleeping on realities That should’ve been But never seen I just want success Does she want me too I want her to I’d cheat on content If she ask me to Her attributes Change my attitude Oh the magnitude Don’t have one But I can’t have two One or the other Do I really have to Deciding would mean one’s of lesser value Deciding would mean I love one of you less Seduced by success who knows you best Fans that await Songs that you write Tattoo your words To carry for life Or the woman who stayed when this didn’t exist When money was low Picked up on shifts Could’a said no Learn how to pitch Could balance be found in the low of the mix If tables were turned And she were the star Could I trust her to leave and come back with my heart What happened to us What happened to me What happens to you Still matters to me [Chorus 1X – Arlo Maverick] You keep on tellin’ me I changed But I can’t say that I care (Can’t) Can’t say that I care (Uh-Uh) Can’t say that I care You keep on tellin’ me I changed But I can’t say that I care (Can’t) Can’t say that I care (Uh-Uh) Can’t say that I care no more [Chorus Part 2 1X – Arlo Maverick] I may be wrong But I doubt it Cause my pride won’t allow it Hold your breath I’ll start counting 1, 2, 3, 4 I’ll start counting I may be wrong But I doubt it Cause my pride won’t allow it Hold your breath I’ll start counting 1, 2, 3, 4 I’ll start counting [Verse 2 – Arlo Maverick] Cheating is just cheating It don’t really matter how Some cheat with their hearts Others cheat with your doubts Many cheat with desires My eyes stared at success But did I cheat her out love As her heart clearly suggests See I’m more than a sinner But I’m far from a saint Know that a slivers a reason to wait One or the other But you can’t choose fate Live in the moment and fuck what they say Love in the moment and hearts cannot stray Trust them and misery’s all that awaits Maybe I changed Forgot who I was Maybe with fame Forgot who I loved Who is to the blame for the tears on your heart Maybe I’m lying by tryn’a restart More pressures of fame Will I stay the same When the measures of reign open windows of pain Will I push you away? Lead you to stray? Revisiting pain you thought went away Can’t promise nothing Let alone me When shit hits the fan I’m not sure who I’ll be [Chorus 1X – Arlo Maverick] You keep on tellin’ me I changed But I can’t say that I care (Can’t) Can’t say that I care (Uh-Uh) Can’t say that I care You keep on tellin’ me I changed But I can’t say that I care (Can’t) Can’t say that I care (Uh-Uh) Can’t say that I care no more [Chorus Part 2 1X – Arlo Maverick] I may be wrong But I doubt it Cause my pride won’t allow it Hold your breath I’ll start counting 1, 2, 3, 4 I’ll start counting I may be wrong But I doubt it Cause my pride won’t allow it Hold your breath I’ll start counting 1, 2, 3, 4 I’ll start counting [Outro – Arlo Maverick] You keep on tellin’ me I changed But I can’t say that I care (Nah) Can’t say that I care (Uh-Uh) Can’t say that I care You keep on tellin’ me I changed But I can’t say that I care (Nah) Can’t say that I care (Uh-Uh) Can’t say that I care

[Verse – Arlo Maverick] Rather than pour a drink This time I’m pouring my soul Live in these glass bottles Yet I still throw stones At the woman who loves me Never did you judge me Nights I reeked of failure And all you did was hug me Laid with me Nurse my insecurities Running to your arms like as if they held the cure for me Telling me you had enough Never did I listen though I said I loved you But never did my actions show I wanted more for us Thought we’d have everything Now all I have is music But where’s the resonance Could there be a part of me That’s secretly pleased to see My seed not in poverty Doubting my capability Henny burning my chest I won’t give it a rest Though it burdens my breath It still burgeons my stress The charred remains of my father’s sins His, “I don’t give a fuck” Is where my life begins Don’t share his name But his pain nonetheless Wishing that I cared But I’m numb from the cess Disappointments all I ever knew Somehow I, became him Without intending to See I love her in a time That no longer exists The only time that it can When my lips reminisce Spent emotionally From sessions that’ve opened me To seeing what I couldn’t see Standing in front of me That once upon we We were making plans On our power couple shit You stood by your man If someone would’ve told me we would end up here I would’ve called them crazy Cause our love was rare, my dear But we’re only human And lust can blinds us For sake of feeling special We leave love behind us Sacrifice stability For those who eye us Forgetful of our soldiers with that do or die love Life seemed so simple Till I bought that ring What it symbolizes Changed up everything We stop living for us And we lived for them They became our truth Should’ve looked within Lines of credits Maxing Visa bills Be careful of your friends Their ideas will Have you thinking marriage Is something it’s not They fear opinions but never God’s I wanna call her and ask that we try again But if I wasn’t wrong Why should I bend Staring at her picture Like the answer stored Itself in this image Worth a thousand words Pride go before Is what my Gram would say So if I love her I’ll find a way [Chorus 1X – Oozeela] I might pretend that I don’t want you (I will chase you forever) I might pretend that I don’t need you (I will chase you forever) I might pretend that I don’t love you (I will chase you forever) But I will chase you (I will chase you forever) Forever (I will chase you forever) I might pretend that I don’t love you (I will chase you forever) I might pretend that I don’t need you (I will chase you forever) I might pretend that I don’t want you (I will chase you forever) But I will chase you (I will chase you forever) Forever (I will chase you forever)
