Just sever that leash and release
Your freedom of speech
You just have to believe
Your deed will be received
Somehow somewhere
You won’t be repaid with a blank stare
Let me know if you dare

There’s no one that could cure you like she does
She does
No one could leave you so alone

Here I goes
My vibe is holy
My eyes closed
Either I’m asleep

Or what I’m thinkin’ is deep
Eventually I sigh and kick the sheets
Try to piece together why I’m here
Nothing except my own damn eyes and ears

And then it severs so I listen to my heart
Always and ever
If it’s not good it might get better
If it’s not good it might just sever

I tell you money there’s other honey
You always show it but you don’t know it
Staring at the door thinking
About the mess you’re in
In your couch sinking deep
Over the girl that’s gone


Now all you think about her drink about her
In vain
But all else feels like you’re betraying

We’re wakin’ it up face up and shakin’ it up
We know of an extended field
This is the deal we’re letting and getting
The vibes that we want

Open up your heart and proceed to feel
Now you’re inchin’ up to the summit never plummet
Boot your system up
And then bail with the middle finger up
Why you so abrupt baby don’t be corrupt

Standing in the club playin’ the wall
That they’re not her is all
You think and that is true
But what else can you do

Trying to turn back time
Or just to the line
‘Cause the space you’re in
Is no place like home
