One Nite Alone

In a pale blue spotlite
a figure spins around a voice calls out 2 u,
"Baby...do you like the sound?"
The undulating acrobat ready 2 do ur bidding says,
"Come, U must let me dress u
but 1st I must do a fitting...
Do u like fast? Or do u like it slow?"

I know it's better if we make it up as we go...
and oh, by the way tell me now what's ur name?
I'll let it sweeten my tongue just once
and never speak it again
since this is our little secret
Untarnished memory in a pale blue spotlite
Let me hear u scream, if u're ready 4...
One nite alone... with me

U're Gonna C Me

I know that I'm not gonna sleep 2nite
Cuz u're not by my side and that ain't right
I thought that we bought this bed 4 two,
but what good is it if I'm not with u

Gimme a page on my 2-way
I'll hit u back with no delay
When u hear all eye've got 2 say
U're gonna c me
Whether in person or the phone
I've got 2 get u all alone
and when eye do baby it's on
U're gonna c me...U're gonna c me

There's never a minute that I find
that u don't ever cross my mind
if u could just hold me tight u'd c...
there's nothing harder 4 u than me

Gimme a page on my 2-way
I'll hit u back with no delay
When u hear all eye've got 2 say
U're gonna c me
Whether in person or the phone
I've got 2 get u all alone
and when eye do baby it's on
U're gonna c me...U're gonna c me

Gimme a page on my 2-way
I'll hit u back with no delay

U're the reason I took a rope and lassoed the moon
2 prove that when it comes 2 u
there's nothing I won't do...
I'd stare in2 the sun if u would be mine
It's not so great a leap since 2 all others I am blind

I know that I'm not gon' sleep 2nite

Here On Earth

Imagine a young woman running 4 her very life
Tryin' 2 get away from the one who loves her
this young woman ur wife
In2 an alley cold and rainy
October just b4 dawn...
Leaping atop a mountain of bricks
her clothes now covered with sick,
The danger hardly gone
She turns and curses the day she met u
and that she wishes she was never born...
Say it's just a dream...
U open up ur eyes and come 2 realize
u simply imagined this
So u lean over and give her a kiss
Here on earth, here on earth,
with u it's not so bad
Here on earth, here on earth
eye don't feel so sad
Stay right here
Here on earth

A Case Of U

I am a lonely painter
I live in a box of paints
I used 2 be frightened by the devil
and drawn 2 those who weren't afraid
Remember when u told me
that love was touching souls?
Well, surely u touched mine
Part of u pours out of me from time 2 time in these lines
U're in my blood like holy wine...u're so bitter and so sweet
I could drink a case of you darling
and still b on my feet...still be on my feet

Have A Heart

I heard the news from a friend of mine and urs
She said the smell of missing me
was coming from ur pours!
She said I broke ur heart so bad
I didn't deserve u back
But don't u have 2 have a heart 1st b4 u get it broken?
Don't u have 2 wanna tell the truth b4 a word is spoken?
So what about the heartbreak?
Everybody's had one c
The fault of mine goes from LA 2 the streets of NYC
but I ain't cryin' about payments overdue
I got some milk but no drop is spilled
over things u put me through
Can't u c we're all just tryin'...
Tryin' 2 get this hustle on...
Lookin' 4 the righteous 2 buy in...
til we right everyone of the wrongs
So what about the heartbreak?
Everybody's had one c...
Have a heart

Objects In The Mirror

That's my favorite time with u
just after we make a movie,
the kind that requires the title
"Parental Advisory"

Let's brush r teeth in the same sink,
don't worry girl it's cool
We can pose in the mirror
I'm diggin' u diggin' on me
We're hooked up now, eye can try her
I can put my load in the dryer
So much we can share
the same height, weight, and body fluid

We're hooked up now, we can do it
Been waitin' baby...
It's so hard 2 bear

the objects in the mirror r closer
than they appear…

Avalanche

He was not or never had been in favor
of setting r people free
if it wasn't 4 the 13th Amendment
we woulda been born in slavery
He was not or never had been in favor
of letting us vote so u c...
Abraham Lincoln was a racist who said
"U cannot escape from history"

Like the snow comin' down the mountain
that landed on Wounded Knee
nobody wants 2 take the weight -
the responsibility

Hear the joyous sound of freedom
The Harlem Renaissance
Hear Duke Ellington and his band
kick another jungle jam
Ooh, do u wanna dance?
Who's that lurking in the shadows?
Mr. John Hammond with his pen in hand...
sayin' "Sign ur kingdom over 2 me
and b known throughout the land!"
But, u ain't got no money, U ain't got no cash
So u sign yo name and he claims innocence
just like every snowflake in an avalanche...

Like the snow comin' down the mountain
that landed on Wounded Knee
nobody wants 2 take the weight -
the responsibility

Pearls B4 The Swine

If I leave my front door open would u come and visit me?
Just 2 slander my name hopin'
that I would pack my bags and leave...
If I did would u remember
2 feed the dove and clean the cage?
And never count in front of the children
lest they die of old age

I don't really know y we have 2 go r separate ways
Whether or not we grow after the seeds r sown
Only time can say...

Can I offer u baklava
or a bagel with cream cheese?
Will we say grace 2 r father
holding hands down on r knees?
R we better off just fighting?
U on ur side, me on mine
R the words that eye keep writing...
only pearls b4 the swine?

What makes men claim that u're a friend
when u're not at all?
They knock u down and then,
they lift u up again, just 2 c u fall...
But like a bird I'll keep on singing...
a song that never leaves ur mind
If nothing else u've taught me one thing...
"Never cast ur pearls b4 the swine"

Young and Beautiful

U're so young and beautiful
U're so full of life- everybody knows
That's y they try 2 take advantage of u...
but u don't have 2 do what the other ones do
U're so cool- the world at ur feet,
they only want ur virginity
Keep ur clothes on and ur chastity
until u find the one that's worth it baby

So young and beautiful
So young and beautiful

U're so fine my heart's just pounding
If I had the chance 2 lay u down,
I'd probably take a rain check 'til next summer
cuz I don't wanna b like all ur other lovers
So young and beautiful
I'm hippin' u 2 the game darlin'
So that u'll always remain
young and beautiful
