Track Name: The Way You Do
I mean you.
Specifically you
Don't look to ya left
Yes YOU! Definitely you.

Separate and unique you
Effortless and individual
Whenever you are doin
The way you do

I love it.
I'm a sucka for ya undulating energy
In any pattern. Gimme at it!
Pitter-patter kitty cat
Love a lick or lap at the milk
I'm happier then satin
When it turned into silk

I'm elaborating on an
Incommunicable state or being.
Can't say it.
Gotta be it to have any meaning.
You exceed all capacity.
Excel. Pick a category
Nah. Take a stab at it
For real
Ha ha see.
I ain't sellin no snake oil
I'm telling of Thee!
The woman I wake for!

(spoken:)
Nor will I take for
Granted
Any moment standing
Next to you on this planet

--

I never met another human
Let alone another woman
Who can do what you can do
When truly open. Duly noted
Don't be jokin.
Straight faced.
Skip the poker. Naked.
Hey let's strip. Say what's left?
Body and flesh.

Baby I behave a grade
Lower than k
"I WANT NOW!!" Sorry
I only borrowed the phrase
See I love you now
And that ain't gonna change
Since the now is forever
There's a literal same

and I'ma give it
I'ma live it hunnid&tenth percentile
And wake up in the mornin
With YOU and then smile
Romeo and WHO?
Psshht infantile!
When in comparison to the maturity
Of your wiles!
Ooh!

5 is alive. See the ring
See the thing about my baby
Is she make me wanna sing
Track Name: The Globe's Atlas
Born a rib light
Half heart with jagged edges
Spark bright & fuelless
Sharp peaks, heavy crevices

Piece by piece
Started fitting what I knew
Into jigsaw beliefs
Then, law was tongue and groove

Spent all my bumbling youth
Longing for love and truth
Found two sound routes
A strong woman and honest music

I had tons of proof growing up
That there was merit
What with a musical fam
And outstanding parents

I share this contrast
And juxtaposition
To the world of "catch.
Get bored and release" fishin

There's a lore of my lineage
Passed thru generations
The legend of the lasting marriage
Dah dah DAHH




---------------
She's my girl/woman
Like atlas is the globe's
My home base, life mate
And rapture of my soul
I don't know any better
Way to travel this road
Than hand in hand with a good woman
For laughter & woes

--------------

I try not to advertise
The wiles of my woman
Lest the gentlemens eyes
Lust for my little chunk of the sky

Sweet spunky and spry
Nothin but the love of my life
The one who understands
This guy

Tho hesitant to blare
The trumpets
I can't bear the song unsung
There's an awe her loving

Though
Careful when I share
Or give an earful of the miracle
How better can I fare?
The question is rhetorical

I soar on waves of rhythm
She's more a maker of visions
She'll take you swimmin in the desert
If ya listen

It's a gift
Both ways receive
As well as distribute
Cyclical and easy
Plus she so damn cute

---------------
She's my girl/woman
Like atlas is the globe's
My home base, life mate
And rapture of my soul
I don't know any better
Way to travel this road
Than hand in hand with a good woman
For laughter & woes

--------------

There's throws of love
& there's throwing stuff
& then throwing it up
Cuz the goal is enough

She know the key hole in me
And hold the skeleton to open up
The hope chest
Get me forwarding guts

And so protective of it
Must admit I love it
Never necessary yet she care &
That's som tomba

Thas MY lil momma
Ha. She got a way
With the wobbles of nature
It's adorable

Even more
Is putting up with my short comings
Lovin me though stubbing my toe
At every door

Ever lore were to speak of a
Feminine so fine
As the one beside me I'd be inclined
To say they're lyin

She's a one of a kind.
