~HEAVENS NOT TOO FAR~

 

Hmmm

 Verse 1

Honey I thought you should know that I'm in a hurry 

I've got to move up north, but it's just temporary

I really tried not to lie, but this burdens getting heavy 

No, you can't come with me this time, you got your own destiny 

 

Pre C.

When I look at you I see your beauty

Now my baby boy he's gonna loose me

 

Chorus:

But heavens not too far away, I know someday you'll visit 

And I didn't think I'd go this way, can I please have one more minute

 

Verse 2 

No honey I don't want to go, please know that I have to

Look how the cancer has grown, I think it's time I go home

I can still hear your voice, sounds just like it did

And I can still feel your hand, when it touches my skin

 

Chorus:

But heavens not too far away, I know someday you'll visit 

And I didn't think I'd go this way, can I please have one more minute

I gave you life now you gotta watch it leave my eyes 

But heavens not too far away, I know someday you'll visit

 

Bridge:

As death rattles my cage, I can hear their voices fading

Each breath getting harder, I can hear the tears coming from my daughter

And to her older brother, he's thinking back when he was younger

When he had a healthy mother, who asked him to take care of his little brother

And he's not really sure about life, or that how could any of this be right

But I know my babies they will be fine, cause they can talk to me anytime

 

Chorus:

Cause, Heavens not too far away, I know someday you'll visit 

I didn't think I'd go this way, can I please have one more minute

I gave you life now you gotta watch it leave my eyes 

But heavens not too far away, I know someday you'll visit

 

Epilogue:

Honey I thought you should know, that I'm in a hurry

I've got a move up north, but it's just temporary

 

-LIFELINE-  

Can you call my lifeline cause I give up 

And I’ll raise my white flag and just give in  

Cause I’m barely breathing got no reason grieving that’s just how I feel  

I’m just trying to be real  

VERSE 1:  

Wish I could turn the switch on,  

Leave it on all damn day long,  

Get it tattooed on my arm just because they told me not to  

Wish I could turn you all off  

Say it without going soft  

But we all know that I’m not one to tell you you have got to  

PRE CHORUS:  

Shiver, feel it, take it, break it, make it what you want and  

Lose it, choose it, find it , mind it, bruise it, use it how you’re gonna  

Shiver, feel it, take it, break it, make it what you want and  

Lose it, choose it, find it , mind it, bruise it use, it how you’re gonna  

CHORUS:  

Can you call my lifeline cause I give up  

I’ll raise my white flag and just give in  

Cause I’m barely breathing got no reason grieving that’s just how I feel  

I’m just trying to be real  

Ooo Ooo I’m just trying to be real  

Ooo Ooo I’m just trying to be real  

VERSE 2:  

Wish I believed the things I pray  

9 times out of 10 they’re too clique  

What I wouldn’t give for a replay  

2AM and still no sleepin  

The numbers and figures don’t add up 

But I’m not really sure if it matters 

Cause lately life’s full of disasters 

5AM and still no sleepin  

PRE CHORUS:  

Shiver, feel it, take it, break it, make it what you want and  

Lose it, choose it, find it, mind it, bruise it use, it how you’re gonna  

CHORUS:  

Can you call my lifeline cause I give up  

I’ll raise my white flag and just give in  

Cause I’m barely breathing got no reason grieving that’s just how I feel  

And I feel the pressure to be perfect forever, that’s just how I feel  

I’m just trying to be real  

Ooo Ooo I’m just trying to be real  

Ooo Ooo I’m just trying to be real 

-TIMELESS- 

Verse one: 

Please don't go away 

That's what I meant to say 

You know I'm not good with words 

You’d think by this time I should be 

Take me as I am 

And I'll do the best I can 

To be the kind of man 

That you would one day choose 

Chorus 

To be intertwined 

Never get you off my mind 

Have a love that's timeless 

Never look behind us 

We’ll sing our songs 

We’ll write our wrongs 

Baby when we are ninety 

and your brown eyes look at me 

I'll still write these rhymes for you 

Sing them when you'd like me to 

Show that the whole world can stop for you 

It's what I know how to do 

Verse 2 

You feel like a wreck 

With my fingers on the neck 

I'll serenade you, babe 

Till the day we hit the grave  

Chorus 

We’ll be intertwined 

Never get you off my mind 

Have a love that's timeless 

Never look behind us 

We’ll sing our songs 

We’ll write our wrongs 

Baby when we are ninety 

and your brown eyes look at me 

I'll still write these rhymes for you 

Sing them when you'd like me to 

Show that the whole world can stop for you 

It's what I know how to do 

Chorus 

We’ll be intertwined 

Never get you off my mind 

Have a love that's timeless 

Never look behind us 

We’ll sing our songs 

We’ll write our wrongs 

Baby when we are ninety 

and your brown eyes look at me 

I'll still write these rhymes for you 

Sing them when you'd like me to 

Show that the whole world can stop for you 

It's what I know how to do

-HOLD ON-

Verse one: 

Let’s flip a switch and then will call it straight 

Wish that I learned to negotiate  

I’d keep your lipstick on my pillow case, yeah 

I’m kind of blind when it comes to this  

Even with your help I know I’ll still miss  

Cause sugar coatings never been my thing, no 

Pre Chorus 

Where do I even begin, I’m no good at this talking thing 

I just wanna give in, and I guess that’s why I need watching, so 

Chorus 

Better hold on to what you find, none of this was by design 

I’m a lover without a soul, yet you still wanna go grow old 

Never meant to hold you too tight, never meant to ruin the night 

The things I say and do like, still no good at this talking thing 

Verse 2 

Bite my tongue don’t talk too fast  

Cause my feelings are slow they don’t like to last 

For more than a moment and sometimes less, yeah 

When I think I’m right turns out I’m wrong,  

You give me an inch I’ll write you a song 

There’s gotta be a reason and it’s not my charm, no 

Pre Chorus 

Where do I even begin, I’m no good at this talking thing 

I just wanna give in, and I guess that’s why I need watching, so 

Chorus 

Better hold on to what you find, none of this was by design 

I’m a lover without a soul, yet you still wanna go grow old 

Never meant to hold you too tight, never meant to ruin the night 

The things I say and do like, still no good at this talking thing 

Rap 

Gotta turn it up side down to see it right side up 

Guess I’m a big let down a little too messed up 

I hoarder every thought and a little bit too square 

Not that you wanted to know just wanted to clear the air 

You love the way I write and hate the way I talk 

Cause I’m a bit too dry and don’t make people laugh 

No need to call me out I know I stutter too much 

Twenty one years old I still got a nervous touch 

That’s why I write things down it’s not to be profound 

It’s to get feelings out so they’re not hanging around 

I probably should be done so I don’t let you in 

Cause any minute now I know I might start stuttering 

Chorus 

Better hold on to what you find, none of this was by design 

I’m a lover without a soul, yet you still wanna go grow old 

Never meant to hold you too tight, never meant to ruin the night 

The things I say and do like, still no good at this talking thing

-SO THEY SAY- 

Verse 1:  

I kinda wanna stay here all alone keep to myself and just stay home 

Having to correct every thought I have might be part of the reason I feel sad  

But life supposedly gets easier this way  

Or so they say  

Chorus: 

But I guess I just can’t give in 

When the world tells me no I still feel it in my bones  

Yeah this is our society but i’m coming clean I’m still a believer 

Verse 2: 

Let’s call a cab and we’ll get out of town  

Two blocks down we’ll probably turn around  

I never really smoke but it’s on mind  

All my friends say it’ll pass the time  

And life supposedly gets easier that way or so they say  

Chorus:  

But I guess I just can’t give in 

When the world tells me no I still feel it in my bones  

Yeah this is our society but i’m coming clean I’m still a believer 

Chorus: 

Wooooah woooah woooah 

Bridge: 

I’ve been out all night just trying to find the light cause I’m still believer  

I’m stuck inside my mind been lost a thousand times but I’m still a believer 

Chorus: 

Wooooah woooah woooah 

Wooooah woooah woooah 

Still a believer 

-MAKEUP- 

Verse one: 

I like your jeans they really make you look so nice  

And I got my reasons when you catch me glancing twice  

I hope you know that baby you are more then clothes  

And all these girls dressing less from head to toe 

Verse two: 

Across the room you nearly took my breath away 

With the way you move your hair so it’s not in your face 

Can’t help myself my eyes they just gravitate 

To yours as well as other things I just can’t say  

Chorus: 

So don’t straighten your hair,or put on your makeup 

You’re more then what’s there, you don’t need to fake love 

You’re more then enough,from the moment you wake up 

So leave your face bare,and put away all of your makeup 

Ooooo ooooooo  

Ooooo ooooooo 

Verse three: 

The night concludes your hair’s falling back in your face 

And I ask to move, move it so it’s back in place 

And I find it rude, when you smile and turn away 

Obstruct my view, and missing every word I say 

Chorus: 

Like don’t straighten your hair,or put on your makeup 

You’re more then what’s there, you don’t need to fake love 

You’re more then enough,from the moment you wake up 

So leave your face bare,and put away all of your makeup 

So don’t straighten your hair,or put on your makeup 

You’re more then what’s there, you don’t need to fake love 

You’re more then enough,from the moment you wake up 

So leave your face bare,and put away all of your makeup 

Ooooo ooooooo  

Ooooo ooooooo 

You thought was cute, and I thought it was too,  

But you never knew babe, baby how crazy I am for you  

You thought was cute and I thought it was too,  

But you never knew babe, baby how crazy I am for you 

Cause you’re more the enough, from the moment you wake up  

So leave your face bare,and put away all of your makeup 

Ooooo ooooooo  

Ooooo ooooooo

-FALL FOR YOU-  

Verse one: 

No don't you, think that you're helpless  

Or think you're hopeless, or that I don't need you 

No baby you, should never doubt the way you are  

Or never love me from afar, like you feel you need to 

Pre Chorus:  

I know that I come on too strong 

Baby when I think you're wrong 

And even when I know you're right 

I still wanna fight 

Chorus 

I'm gonna love you 

Like I've never loved anyone before 

Cause I know that you could get so much more 

And leave me behind 

So I'm gonna love you 

And pray that I always wake up to see 

See you your body laying next to me 

Wearing one of my T’s 

Why'd you have to go and make me fall 

Fall so hard for you 

Verse two: 

You’re feeling strange, and chocolate won't fix this 

You say’d it's my kisses, that'll take this away 

You're feeling shame, baby just when you start to shine  

You think that you've crossed some sort of line, but baby you don't need to 

Pre Chorus 

I know that I come on too strong 

Baby when I think you're wrong 

And even when I know you’re right 

I still wanna fight 

Chorus 

I'm gonna love you 

Like I've never loved anyone before 

Cause I know that you could get so much more 

And leave me behind 

So I'm gonna love you 

And pray that I always wake up to see 

See you your body laying next to me 

Under the sheets 

Why'd you have to go and make me fall, fall so hard  

Why'd you have to go and make me fall, fall so hard  

Why'd you have to go and make me fall, fall so hard  

For you

-RUNNING- 

Verse one: 

Thank you for everything 

You know I'm good I can numb the pain 

You know that you're always welcome here 

I'm the kind of man can hold his tears 

Where would you like to go we can go there and stay 

It could be a ways because baby I got all day 

Where would you like to go we can go there and stay 

It could be a ways because baby I got all day 

Chorus:  

Hear the whisper feel the breeze 

This kind of winter bring you to your knees 

It'll show you how to love someone 

Love someone that you're running from 

Verse two: 

People keep lock-in then talkin behind those doors again 

You keep mockin my my walkin I just can't call you my friend 

I've been around bend 

This is nothing new 

Did I lose a friend 

Should I make amends 

Did I make this mess 

cause I thought that you'd address 

The mess 

The stress 

From you 

Chorus: 

Hear the whisper feel the breeze 

This kind of winter bring you to your knees 

It'll show you how to love someone 

Love someone that you’re running from 

Bridge: 

We tried this before and ended up with horse voices 

How can you ignore all of these loud noises 

We tried this before and ended up with horse voices 

How can you ignore all of these loud noises 

Chorus:  

Hear the whisper feel the breeze 

This kind of winter bring you to your knees 

It'll show you how to love someone 

Love someone that you’re running from

-SWEATER WEATHER-  

Verse one: 

Your face half lit by the fire 

The sound of rain falling on the window seal 

I think you’re wearing down to the wire  

Cause the window’s cracked and you got the chills 

Pre Chorus: 

It’s been a little colder winter here at home you wonder if I’d like a sweater  

No thank you I am fine your body’s next to mine this really is my kind of weather 

Chorus: 

Cuddles by the fire, a bottle of champagne and sower patch bites 

Movies till way past midnight, when most of them were just alright 

Dancing to Sheeren’s Barcelona, made me remember just how much I love ya 

And as I carry you up to your room babe, I whispered this under my breath 

Is it time we turn out all lights, and give into the night 

Verse two: 

Red wine stains on the carpet, but not a beat was missed cause you’re just that way 

I’m really tryin’ to stay honest, but it gets so damn hard when you look that way 

Pre Chorus: 

It’s been a little colder winter here at home you wonder if I’d like a sweater  

No thank you I am fine your bodies next to mine this really is my kind of weather 

Chorus: 

Cuddles by the fire, a bottle of champagne and sower patch bites 

Movies till way past midnight, when most of them were just alright 

Dancing to Sheeren’s Barcelona, made me remember just how much I love ya 

And as I carry you up to your room babe, I whispered this under my breath 

Is it time we turn out all lights, and give into the night 

Bridge: 

You lighten up the hallway, when the corners of your mouth raise 

And you make me think of coldplay cause damn the way you look at me 

Forwards feeling backwards, but girl you got a nack for  

Making me feel I’m ten feet off the floor  

Chorus: 

Cuddles by the fire, a bottle of champagne and sower patch bites 

Movies till way past midnight, when most of them were just alright 

Dancing to Sheeren’s Barcelona, made me remember just how much I love ya 

And as I carry you up to your room babe, I whispered this under my breath 

Is it time we turnout all lights, and give into the night

-TESTIFY-  

Verse one: 

Lying awake trying to contemplate your perception  

I’ve made a mistake but this is a whole new kind of rejection  

Come over here slowly come get to know my body  

Got me braking a sweat cause this is a whole new kind of neglection 

Pre Chorus: 

What happened to the days when you never told me lies  

Now life’s just one big maze thank god I realized  

Fine I’ll brake it down I’ll say it you broke my heart  

Chorus:  

Life gets so black and white when I look your eyes  

Girl you just simplify  

You make wrong seem so right turn the dark into light  

You make me want to testify  

You make me want to testify

Didn’t want to address but I really thought that you should know  

Come over here slowly come get to know my body  

Still lying awake trying contemplate your perception

You make me want to testify 

-PARADISE-  

Verse one: 

Things get awkward when you act like that 

And you get nervous when I get too mad 

Both throwing punches and it hurts so bad 

Let me say, let me say, let me say I’m sorry  

Chorus: 

Think I’m stuck in the middle of your paradise 

And I’m not trying to ruin all your pretty lies 

I don’t want to force this if it don’t feel right  

Let me say, let me say, let me say I’m sorry 

Verse two: 

Yeah I get selfish when I’m insecure 

And I get flustered when you talk about her 

So let’s change the subject maybe that’s our cure 

And I’ll say, and I’ll say, and I’ll say I’m sorry too 

Chorus: 

Think I’m stuck in the middle of your paradise 

And I’m not trying to ruin all your pretty lies 

I don’t want to force this if it don’t feel right  

Let me say, let me say, let me say I’m sorry 

Will you say, will you say, will you say you’re sorry 

Bridge: 

Oh yeah 

Yeah we’re going round, and round, and round, and round 

Oh yeah

Oh yeah 

We keep going round, and round, and round  

Will you say, will you say, will you say you’re sorry

And I’m not trying to ruin all your pretty lies

Will you say, will you say, will you say you’re sorry too
