Track Name: You Never Told Me
Verse 1
From the first stare, your smile your hair
Your walk your flare, you completely sold me
Went on from there, without a care
Secrets were shared, but you never told me
About the grip, another man has on your heart
And there's no room for me
You're two for one, I’m not that one
To share a love, your keeping things from me

Chorus
You never told me where I stand
That I'm on the outside lookin in
Instead you lied to me
Lovin secretly deceiving me
You never told me in your hands
That bitter deceit was in your plans
You played me knowingly
Lied to me openly controlling me

Verse 2
I loved you you loved him at the same time
At this age all those days should be behind
How could thoughts of deceit enter your mind
Can’t say the blame was mine cause I
Treated you so damn good you played me for a fool
You prolly wore the dress I bought to make him notice you
Bruh you can have her this bitch ain’t half the woman I thought she was
I hope she's two times that for you

Chorus
You never told me where I stand
That I'm on the outside lookin in
Instead you lied to me
Lovin secretly deceiving me
You never told me in your hands
That bitter deceit was in your plans
You played me knowingly
Lied to me openly controlling me

Bridge
From the first moment, you seemed to be heaven sent
Grabbin’ my heart makin’ me feel emotions I never felt before
But it all was game, almost left me drowning in pain
Robbin the one that my mind body and soul was meant for

You never told me (4x)
About the one you had on the side
You never told me
About the one , about the one
You never told me

Chorus
You never told me where I stand
That I'm on the outside lookin in
Instead you lied to me
Lovin secretly deceiving me
You never told me in your hands
That bitter deceit was in your plans
You played me knowingly
Lied to me openly controlling me

Outro
Lovin secretly deceiving me
Lied to me openly controlling me
Lovin secretly deceiving me
Lied to me openly controlling me
Lovin secretly deceiving me
Lied to me openly controlling me
Track Name: Grounded
Verse 1
If you only knew how bad you've locked me in
Don’t ask me to tell cause I don’t know where to begin
God he smiles on me though I don’t always know his plans
I know he must've had you in mind when he designed a gift for a man

Chorus
You got the things that keep me grounded
(mentally, physically, spiritually drivin me outta control)
I've searched for a queen in you I've found it
(prayed for the day to sweep you away and I got a strong hold)
You got the things that keep me grounded
(mentally, physically, spiritually drivin me outta control)
I've searched for a queen in you I've found it
(prayed for the day to sweep you away and I got a strong hold)

Verse 2
You're love it blinds me
It puts the sun to shame cause through snow and rain it never stops shining
And your precious touch
Nourishes me with physical mental and spiritual healing (ooh)
It’s all over me, the whole worlds aware
People stop to stare even blind men can see its you that goes as far as I can see
Cause grounded is where you got me

Chorus
You got the things that keep me grounded
(mentally, physically, spiritually drivin me outta control)
I've searched for a queen in you I've found it
(prayed for the day to sweep you away and I got a strong hold)
You got the things that keep me grounded
(mentally, physically, spiritually drivin me outta control)
I've searched for a queen in you I've found it
(prayed for the day to sweep you away and I got a strong hold)

Bridge
Keep groundin’ me (repeats)
Keep groundin’ me (repeats)
Keep groundin’ me (repeats)
Keep groundin’ me (repeats)
Keep groundin’ me (repeats)
Keep groundin’ me (repeats)
The hold you have is stronger than gravity

Chorus
You got the things that keep me grounded
(mentally, physically, spiritually drivin me outta control)
I've searched for a queen in you I've found it
(prayed for the day to come sweep you away and I got a strong hold)
You got the things that keep me grounded
(mentally, physically, spiritually drivin me outta control)
I've searched for a queen in you I've found it
(prayed for the day to sweep you away and I got a strong hold)

Bridge
Keep groundin’ me (repeats)
Keep groundin’ me (repeats)
Keep groundin’ me (repeats)

(mentally, physically, spiritually drivin me outta control)
I've searched for a queen in you I've found it
(prayed for the day to come sweep you away and I got a strong hold)
(mentally, physically, spiritually drivin me outta control)
(prayed for the day to come sweep you away and I got a strong hold)
(mentally, physically, spiritually drivin me outta control)
Track Name: Messy
Verse 1
Electricity fills the room when we kiss what a rush
I feel a slight buzz from just the slightest feel of your touch
So should we jump right into the mood and express what’s obvious
Or should we step back, take our time think for a minute and ask ourselves what’s the rush

Chorus
Cause I wanna start somethin right tonight
The vibe in the air says tonight is right
Our bodies share the same energy
So when it’s on it’s on and it's gonna get messy baby
So when it’s on it’s on and it's gonna get messy baby

Verse 2
Electricity fills the room when we kiss what a rush
I feel a slight buzz from just the slightest feel of your touch

Chorus
Cause I wanna start somethin right tonight
The vibe in the air says tonight is right
Our bodies share the same energy
So when it’s on it’s on and it's gonna get messy baby (so messy so messy baby)
So when it’s on it’s on and it's gonna get messy baby (so messy so messy baby)

Bridge
So messy baby
Gonna get so messy baby
So messy baby
Gonna get so messy baby
So messy
Gonna get so messy baby
So so so so so so so messy
Gonna get so messy baby

Chorus
Cause I wanna start somethin right tonight
The vibe in the air says tonight is right

Track Name: Heart Breaker
Verse
Girl its you, that’s got me so, open I can’t close
You're in my heart and in my head
You've made a bed down deep in my soul
What I want is to give you everything
And share a love that has no ending
It’s not complicated because
You are the light the shines in a world that’s pitch black and I
Don’t wanna stop your shine
That’s why I’m steppin’ back cause I don’t wanna be a heartbreaker

Chorus
(Heartbreaker)
Right now thats where Im at
Wish I wasn't but I am
Really don’t wanna be
Thats why Im calling you
And callin’ out for you to carry on
If you're still there maybe I'll see you later
But right now I'm just a heartbreaker
And that’s all I can be to you
Track Name: Time Wasted
Verse 1
Do you remember the time when the time we spent was timeless
Do you remember the time when the time we spent was priceless
Do you remember the time when the time we spent was pure
Should've got better with time
Them was the best of times
What you doin with your time
Need to quit wasting time
I ain’t got the what time is it stop to find it
Got time in my hands not on my hands and it’s priceless
Ain’t got nothin but time it’s real real what’s mine is yours
Ain’t just wastin’ time, so it’s comin right on time
Anything’s better than time, anything’s better than time

Chorus
Time wasted
Time wasted
Time wasted
Time wasted
See the thing about time is
You never know when it’s timeless
And then oh where the time went
History's now not tomorrow

Verse 2
Ain’t losin time
Time and time again I try it
This isn’t the time, don’t know why I’m just grindin
Maybe another time best believe that time is yours
These are some crazy times, so have an amazing time
Ain’t no use in savin time, but take your time
Gettin’ better with time (yes) and it’s all in the timin
Maybe this time it won’t be so hard to find it
Thats why I ain’t wasting time if its there gone get some more
Cause you ain’t stopping time, can’t just start anytime
Anything’s better than time, anything’s better than time

Chorus
Time wasted
Time wasted
Time wasted
Time wasted
See the thing about time is
You never know when it’s timeless
And then oh where the time went
History's now not tomorrow

Bridge
I know these ain't the best of times so I gotta make it go my way
And in these tryin’ times is when I keep on pushin for someday
If that ain’t worth your time then, then don’t waste your time it’s to much out here to be reclining y ou're better off a no show

Chorus
Time wasted
Time wasted
Time wasted
Time wasted
See the thing about time is
You never know when it’s timeless
And then oh where the time went
History's now not tomorrow
