Unease fills the day
Just tryin' to
Make my own way

Of meets were
gone long
The grace don't
sing our
same song

She feels alone
and left out
How do we
show her what
it's all about?

Spendin' time talkin'
doin' chores, but
not walkin'
Will give that
grace a boost.

She the gardener,
we're the flowers
she thinks she's
gonna get the boot.

No way baby!
The love is just
too full
to EVER leave
you behind
and honey,
that's no bull.

Falling from his mouth
Streams of loving Grace
His eyes, I see once again
A familiar line of his face

We've known for so long
How to sing the same song

So why must we wait
To give away
What we want?

Why can't the
Creative passion
Beg for more
Until the light
Of Violet dawns?

'Cuz now ain't the time
To bust that rhyme

You'll know what to do
When you feel the dew

Until then, keep your head
Time's on your side
So don't pull that thread

Be sure you know
That you're in the flow

Don't rush the love
Until it's sent
From above

Be sure you know
Which way you'll go

Or you'll find it
Once again
That you're not
Your best friend

And sittin' sad and alone
Wonderin' what
you done

Just run wit what U brung

A mixed-up, mashed-up
Jumble of fears

Can't believe in anything,
Anything but tears

You say you love me
Yet don't love yourself

You give me lip service
Then put me on a shelf

I am and can be -- only me
Don't want you, if you're not free

I went quick across the nation
Looking 4 respite

But found you're lost like me
And you just don't get it

I can't go into hell with you
But I want to -- real bad

U keep puttin' me off
And it makes me damn sad

I stand B4 you know
To reveal my true love
