::CONQUER::

Can’t ever feel defeated/ 

This light shines on the depleted/

We take it or we leave it/

It’s with outstanding meaning/

This is my perseverance/

The strength engulfed in my spirit/

Some hear it… And some fear it/

This energy I find myself filled with/

Gives life and breaths fire into my soul/

Resurrects the structure of my bones/

Till I’m like a hard to move object of stone/

Holding my own wherever I tend to roam/

They expect me to fall and crawl on my own/

Cave under the pressure and stay out of the zone/

But I’m ready for the unknown it’s what I prepared for/

Therefore/

It’s like I’ve been here before/

It’s nothing but the more or less/

It’s all I have been built for in the flesh/

Conquer it and move on to the next. 

::HISTORY::

Concrete jungle/

Filled with sirens and hustle/

Where they either hate or love you/

And this illusion is a reality for a few/

So I rise and shine for the ultimate grind/

My mind shines, I’m a one of a kind/

Can’t find a crack or a weakness/

Your enemies talk down when they speak this/

Your rivals walk around unsteady when they see this/

They can’t believe this…./

After barrages and sabotages keeping you from complicated accomplishments/

Your will defeated the odds and didn’t comply with their vileness/

Watch them view you with unwanted astonishment/

As you break past their broken promises/

Because nobody can promise this/

Standing tall like a champ on your Mount Olympus for all to witness/

No give up or give in for this victory/

You are now a part of their history. 

::VICTORY::

Have them captivated/

Coming from the bottom…

Some are agitated that I made it/

Levitated/

Patiently waited… 

For the chance to become the greatest/

That’s where my faith is/

Fate is/

Pace by pace with/

Finding solutions deep in the matrix/

Lost and faded/

The cost debated/

See I’m all or nothing….

Its nothing at all if I can’t make it/

My sweat and blood is kept sacred/

Standing in front of my biggest obstacles…

And I’m ready to face them/

The dreams are alive…

And I’m ready to chase them/

The doubters shout…

But I’m ready to replace them/

Opportunities abroad…

And I’m ready to take them/

Opportunities are large…

And I can’t seem to waste them/

Nothing bigger than my heart….

When victory is where my aim is. 

::FAMOUS::

What does it take to get famous/

And no longer be nameless/

This attention is shameless/

These millionaires are brainless/

Wait… So tell me what your aim is?/

Thinking the same, but where are the changes?/

Business card exchanges/

The I’ll call you don’t call me stages/

Is it me or is this all outrageous/

Is it me or is this all done out of hatred/

Is it ego…

Maybe they should make it illegal…

To be that famous/

Are we turning pages?/

Or are we taking turns on social media pages/

Is it hard to be a star stuck in the matrix/

Can you tell me how it felt when you made it/

Nah…Maybe I just wanna stay home and never make it… Famous. 

::STILL FINDING MY PEACE::

Streets are serene 
Filled with chatter 
Bumping around the crowds
Looking for what matters
I’m lost before I’m found
Searching for an old sound 

I want to feel at ease
Hearing your voice 
Still finding my peace 

And they say it isn’t love
Till your heart bleeds
They’ll say it never was
Till every ounce of it leaves 

Tell me before 
I close these doors
What was on your mind
I just need to know more
If you’ve held the truth in 
Why was it so easy to lie 

I want to feel at ease
Hearing your voice 
Still finding my peace 

And they say it isn’t love
Till your heart bleeds
They’ll say it never was
Till every ounce of it leaves

And

I refuse to break
Holding this fate
Knowing your face
Has to be replaced

And 

I refuse to take
Is it really too late
Knowing these mistakes
Have to be erased 

::TAKE US AWAY:: 

Remember skies bright 
Shining like lights 
Clouds came unannounced
And with heartbeat sounds
Confusing our ways 
Just like love songs gone astray

But…

Tomorrow is coming soon and I’m asking 
Can’t we just live for another day
Act like it never happened 
And let the memories take us away

Time to unpack thoughts make empty spaces
Beach waves to subway stations
Late nights filled with our ovations
The crowd starts to cheer us on 
The energy fills the room till its gone
Just one more time they want to hear our song

But…

Tomorrow is coming soon and I’m asking 
Can’t we just live for another day
Act like it never happened 
And let the memories take us away

First date
Kiss under the moon just wait 
For early morning walks 
And 3:30am long talks
Fighting through snow piles
It’s no wonder we haven’t found love in awhile
Favorite shows
Bus stops that go
On like forever…
Do you ever…
Dream of us together…
Just take us away.

::AFTER THIS::

With the good comes the bad 
And they say time heals all wounds 
So even if you give all you have
Would it be love if you gave up so soon

Tears don’t run dry…
And rain doesn’t come from clear skies…
And pain doesn’t come from happiness…
If it wasn’t love, why would we be after this… After this… After this

Don’t chase what’s not meant to be
If the signs are there
But what other reasons were you sent to me
If I really didn’t care 
Tears don’t run dry…

And rain doesn’t come from clear skies…
And pain doesn’t come from happiness…
If it wasn’t love, why would we be after this… After this… After this

Hold me and never let go
And if I ever let go let me know
There’s reasons to stay above leaving 

After this.

After this.

After this.

::JUST STRANGERS::

It’s the tall tale signs 
And I wish you were still mine
But we never really belong to another
Dreams gone astray for the other
With promises made and promises broke
Words left unsaid while what’s said just goes

And so we just become strangers 
Strangers passing just to let go
In a life where nobody seems to know
Reaching out for the one who does with hope

Wish you would have stayed awhile
Gotten to know my hurt inner child 
I’m so sure what you thought wasn’t 
And what you think wasn’t known
We always miss the idea of loving
But out of fear run away from home

And so we just become strangers 
Strangers passing just to let go
In a life where nobody seems to know
Reaching out for the one who does with hope

If you find me again would you ask me
Or would you turn and walk right past me
Answer the questions that lingered 
Or ignore me and treat me with bitter
Regrets pain and all the hurt that remains
Would you make it better or leave it the same

And so we just become strangers 
Strangers passing just to let go
In a life where nobody seems to know
Reaching out for the one who does with hope

::FIND WHATS RIGHT::

If you find yourself in these pages
Words matching up to these sayings
If you still find your heart beating
Those are the words and your soul meeting

But…

You’re so distracted from the good in life… The good in life
Why can’t you step back and look at life… Just look at life
To busy trying to find what’s wrong to find what’s right… Just find what’s right

Some day you’ll wake up from your dreams
And it won’t be what you always conceived it would be
You shouldn’t stand there questioning motives
In clouded thoughts making it hard to notice

But…

You’re so distracted from the good in life… The good in life
Why can’t you step back and look at life… Just look at life
To busy trying to find what’s wrong to find what’s right… Just find what’s right

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure
One women’s loss is another women pleasure
It’s one life why should all our mistakes measure
And it’s no wonder they say never say never

::BELIEVED IN::

You were always trying to give me a hard time

Guess you’re just a product of a hard life

And all I wanted was truth and you gave me hard lies 

While digging through your soul and getting lost in your hard eyes

I can still see the looks you gave me

Drowning in them and they enslaved me

But your deepest pain isn’t why you hate me

Didn’t realize it then but I’m knowing lately

That…

I am not the reason… What’s the reason

I am not the reason… What’s the reason

Not everything you see should be believed in… Believed in… Believed in

I was trapped in trying to understand you

World turned upside down you’re a handful 

I saw the beauty in it all and you saw from a bad view

Maybe I didn’t take the time to sit there and ask you

I can still see the looks you gave me

Drowning in them and they enslaved me

But your deepest pain isn’t why you hate me

Didn’t realize it then but I’m knowing lately

That…

I am not the reason… What’s the reason

I am not the reason… What’s the reason 

Not everything you see should be believed in… Believed in… Believed in
