Track Name: Take It From Here
Hook
So let me take it from here/So let me take it from here/Sit back and let me take it from here/I know this what the world been craving to here/Don't have to wait no longer have no fear/Tell 'em I'm here/So watch me take it from

Verse
I'm not a star/Somebody lied/Gotta CD in the car that'll get this sh*t live/I'm not conceited but I wasn't raised to lie/If you put my record in guaranteed it's 'gon ride/It's Detroit/Baby, EASTSIDE/Motorcity, is where I reside/A lot been going on/It's like we're in a war zone but ima put my city on and show the world our good side/Music for the soul/ Yeah, I'm the definition/I'm in my own lane/Don't see no competition/ I'm speaking from within/I'm speaking to inspire/Mission to motivate/ Aiming to take you higher/HITSVILLE I got the Motown style/This that soulful R&B with an old school sound/My mama told me I'm the hottest one around and she isn't known to lie so I guess it's bouta go down

Hook
So let me take it from here/Sit back and let me take it from here/I know this what the world been craving to here/Don't have to wait no longer have no fear/Tell 'em I'm here/So watch me take it from

Verse
They say that it feels like I been here before/Guess I was reincarnated came back with an old soul/The ones that hate it must be anti-R&B 'cause through my music you get the Blues through every Rhythm I sing/I don't play no games/Here to make your mind elevate/They done let me in the door in case you didn't know I'm here to stay/When you speak of me in correlation hope it's past tense/ Comparing me to this generation ain't no compliment/Got a little bit Anita/Got a little bit of Gladys/Chaka Khan and Aretha/Still working on Patti/But you can add some Badu/And some Lauryn Hill/And alotta bit of Jill Scott/This how I make you feel/I'm writing from the heart/ Everything I say is real/This is my passion, this is love/Don't do it for a dollar bill/So come roll with me/Venture on this journey/As we ride on the path to greatness I'm not stopping 'till I'm mentioned with the greatest

Hook
So let me take it from here/Sit back and let me take it from here/I know this what the world been craving to here/Don't have to wait no longer have no fear/Tell 'em I'm here/So watch me take it from

Verse
Ever since/Back in the day/Said you been needing, you been feinding for a taste/But was too shy/To ask my name/And even though it's been some years you feel the same/I said that's cool/I hear your game/But fyi/I know the rules I call the plays/Don't step to me if your approach is so cliche/'Cause if you do then this is what I'm gonna say

Tonight, is one of those nights/For you to come do me right/I'm already handcuffed/Locs tied/Do to me whatever you like/Just make me a promise, babe/Take it slow/And when I want you to beat it up/I'll, let you know/No need for the foreplay/My hands took care of that/Just hurry come get it, babe/Give to me what I lack

Track Name: Floatn
Verse
Take a hit/Of my love/For my loving is a drug/Flows through your veins as you inhale/Get more aroused from every puff/But slow down you gotta pass it/If you don't you'll have a habit/That's impossible to break 'cause in your mind you gotta have it/So in love/With the feeling 'cause I make life so surreal/Everything is so appealing/So attracted to the thrill/Yeah

Hook
Lets go smoking/Yeah/Gravitating to the sky/As my loving gets you high/Lets go floatn/Lets go floatn

Verse
Ya didn't listen now you're addicted/To the way I get you lifted/Taste my flavor/More through papers/So engulfed but won't admit it/Try to get it/
Anywhere/While making sure you don't get caught/Right now even if you did you're in so deep you wouldn't stop/Got you moving in slow motion/Feeling wavy like the ocean/Body still but mind is floating/ Filled with all kind of emotions/When I'm done/Ya usually feast/But I put you right to sleep/Now you know that I'm that deal/Now tat my name/So I know it's real

Hook
Lets go smoking/Gravitating to the sky/ As my loving gets you high/Lets go floatn/Lets go floatn

Everything is better when you're high off me/The things I do/Will take you to ecstasy/Come roll with me/Come ride with me/Get high with me/Come fly with me/Everything is better when you're high off me/The things I do/Will take you to ecstasy/Come roll with me/Come ride with me/Come fly with me/Get high with me

Track Name: Take It Slow
Verse:
We’ve been together for a minute/Huh/But in my heart I just ain’t ready for/Us/To be fully committed/‘Cause I still have other feelings for others though you ain’t with it/Uh/Lust got our progress hindered/My heart I just ain’t ready to surrender/No/We always have our differences/Arguing over stupid sh*t/But too afraid to call it quits

Bridge
I know I/Misbehave/And you made your mistakes/And we both still have room left to grow/And though love/ Sometimes hurt/I still put you first/And we’ll make this thing work/But I think we should take it slow

Hook
Take it slow/Take it slow/Take it slow/Take it slow/Take it slow/
Take it slow/Take it slow/Take it slow/Just take it slow

Verse
I know you want to be with me/But this relationship is pending/‘Cause you have your insecurities/About what I do in these streets/When I say I’m just doing me/But you think otherwise/You say that you trust in me/ Yeah right/‘Cause one day you’re in love/The next day you’re suspicious over petty sh*t like Twitter

Bridge
Sometimes you/Misbehave/Don’t see your mistakes/And how your actions mess up this flow/I know love/Can confuse/And disguise what’s the truth/Make you see what’s not true/So I think we should take it slow

Hook
Take it slow/Take it slow/Take it slow/Take it slow/Take it slow/
Take it slow/Take it slow/Take it slow/Just take it slow
Track Name: No Love
Verse
Cold world/That we living in/No joy/All there is, is sin/Men killing babies/ Raping older ladies/Women killing children/Look at the way we living/Everyday/When I watch the news/It's the same thing/Just someone new/ Such a crying shame/Instead of hating each other/Lets embrace one another and change our ways

Hook
But there's no love/It's just pain/There's no sun/It's just heartache and rain/We need to change the world today

Verse
Can't even party/Without something going wrong/'Cause first the music plays/Then the bullets spray/Piercing ya daughter or son/Ohh Lawd/Wrong place/At the wrong time/Is the storyline/For these unintentional crimes/No good reason/It's just lies/From your corrupted mind/This can't be life

Hook
But there's no love/It's just pain/There's no sun/It's just heartache and rain/We need to change the world today

Bridge
As she stares down the barrel of a gun/She's wondering if today is the last time she'll hold her son/Kiss his face/Feel his touch/'Cause the father in a rage 'cause he had enough/So he pulls the trigger/now he's on the run/'Cause he realize the damage that he's done/Our men of today/Such cowardly ways/Can do the dirt but scared to show his face/It's no love

Hook
It's just heartache and pain/Yeah/There's no sun/Just heartache and rain

Outro
Ain't no love/In the heart of the city/I said it ain't no love/In the heart of town/We need to change/Need to change the world today
Track Name: On The Otherside
Hook
Lets take a trip to the otherside/Where kids witness homicides/ Domestic violence in their sight/Know every song can't read or write/ Young boy with a pistol on his hip/Young girl with lipstick on her lips/ Daddy ain't there/Can't teach 'em sh*t/Mother do drugs to escape from it/Life just ain't fair/Living in these streets/Moving too fast/Can't even dream/Too scared to sleep/Gotta watch yo back 'cause the enemy/They like to creep/They plot and sneak/Sh*t just ain't right/ Hard to survive/When you living on the otherside

Verse
It's sunny on the bright side where the grass is greener/Where you see all the shiny rides and the air is much cleaner/Where children play together/Their parents buy them whatever/And they think they're so much better/But on the otherside the grass just can't get right/ People can't survive so they kill and rob at night/And boys are slanging on the street/To buy their family food to eat/They barely have a place to sleep

Hook
Lets take a trip to the otherside/Where kids witness homicides/ Domestic violence in their sight/Know every song can't read or write/ Young boy with a pistol on his hip/Young girl with lipstick on her lips/ Daddy ain't there/Can't teach 'em sh*t/Mother do drugs to escape from it/Life just ain't fair/Living in these streets/Moving too fast/Can't even dream/Too scared to sleep/Gotta watch yo back 'cause the enemy/They like to creep/They plot and sneak/Sh*t just ain't right/ Hard to survive/When you living on the otherside

Verse
Around here/They get it how they live/Girl 12 years old messing with them grown men/Not using protection/13 years old now the girl is pregnant/Her mother a Christian/Abortion not a option/So kids having kids/Don't know what to do now/'Cause the man vanished/Now she's forced to be grown/Raise her baby on her own/Grandma does the best she can/Call the babydad he won't answer the phone/Life can be so cold/When you think that you know/Everything you need to know Give yourself time to grow/Learn to listen when ya told/You need to live your life slow, baby/Baby/Baby/Baby

Hook
Lets take a trip to the otherside/Where kids witness homicides/ Domestic violence in their sight/Know every song can't read or write/ Young boy with a pistol on his hip/Young girl with lipstick on her lips/ Daddy ain't there/Can't teach 'em sh*t/Mother do drugs to escape from it/Life just ain't fair/Living in these streets/Moving too fast/Can't even dream/Too scared to sleep/Gotta watch yo back 'cause the enemy/They like to creep/They plot and sneak/Sh*t just ain't right/ Hard to survive/When you living on the otherside
Track Name: Reality of Dreams (Feat. Lenox Price)
Verse
The time is now/For everything/I'm going hard/On everything/I'm on a mission/To fulfill my dreams/I do it for the love/You can keep the fame/
Even though I know it ain't no way around it/I gotta stay real and keep myself grounded/'Cause if I don't it's gonna be some trouble/Being caught up in the lights can be a struggle/People want you doing/Want you doing this/And when you tell 'em no/Then they wanna start to diss/ But I just tell 'em hi hater/Hater/I'm outchea doing me/So I'll holla at ya later/Ain't got no time for the bullish/Say what you want but reaching for the stars I'll never quit/Promised my mama selling out is not apart of me unless you talking shows or moving units in the first week

Hook
Reality ain't always what it seems/But the same thang can be said about dreams, it's/Easy to wish for, harder to live/Everybody in ya business with they own opinion/People will always try to bring you down/Reckless on the internet but smile when you're around, so/Do what you do/Hold ya head/Keep ya sanity/And it's a must you stay in touch with your reality

Verse
In this game of life you gotta do what's best for you/It don't matter what they offer, man, ya gotta stay true/Never let a person use or try to play you like a fool/When it's time to make it happen let your heart lead you/With your ambition along with your aspiration/No matter how hard the trial just know that you're gonna make it/And never let a person tell ya you ain't good enough/Because your faith and love for God is truly enough/He's gonna lead you to where you wanna be/And He will protect you as you strive for destiny/Just believe it/You will achieve it/Be careful 'cause some people out here are deceiving/They much rather see you down/Instead of being happy walking 'round with a smile/I guess that's the new thing to be bitter/When ya dealing with a leader and a natural born winner

Hook
Reality ain't always what it seems/But the same thang can be said about dreams, it's/Easy to wish for, harder to live/Everybody in ya business with they own opinion/People will always try to bring you down/Reckless on the internet but smile when you're around, so/Do what you do/Hold ya head/Keep ya sanity/And it's a must you stay in touch with your reality

Verse (Lenox Price)
It's a difference in expenses and realistic and politics/It's polishing all of these artists publishing/Nonsense/..writing presence of a king/But don't accept the acknowledgement the Soul Colosseum was../ Number 7 Let You Go lyrics should have been engraved in a monument/Ms.Sorrell Far Away vocals led the foundation/Now everybody who was sleeping on you gon say that they was meditating/So many classics a dude told me that he was tired of hating/I swear to God/I'm just blessed to live what the late King was dreaming with the same ambition brother Malcolm X had/Just headphones looking out the window getting visions sitting in the same/It's soul music Motown/Dreams can come true if Michael Jackson made some of his greatest records 10 mins away from where I live/But I turn on the TV and see all of this bullshit/But they don't understand the vision that Ms.Ashley Sorrell lyrics is giving/It's been a pleasure

Hook
Reality ain't always what it seems/But the same thang can be said about dreams, it's/Easy to wish for, harder to live/Everybody in ya business with they own opinion/people will always try to bring you down/Reckless on the internet but smile when you're around, so/Do what you do/Hold ya head/Keep ya sanity/And it's a must you stay in touch with your reality

Outro (Lenox Price)
They gon try to bring you down, ya know what I mean/Every word is a vision/Every vision is from a dream/And every dream is to outcome your future/Ya know
Track Name: My Angel
Verse
As the wind blows by, I look up in the sky/I see an angel smiling down waving at me saying "hi"/It's my granny Willie B/On my mother side/ She told me it's okay to cry that everything'll be alright/That she's always by my side/Never let me out her sight/My mom's my angel by my side, she's my angel in the sky/I told her that I wish it wasn't this way/'Cause everyday when I awake I hope to see her face/So she can tell me that she loves me through my mistakes/And that she's proud of the young woman that I became/Told her that my life will never be the same/I'm still adjusting to her loss and now upcoming fame/I asked for advice and what I should do/She said no matter what my child, ya gotta stay true/To yourself/Through the fame, don't change/ Stay loyal to the ones that were there before you got a bigger name/ The reason why I haven't came is 'cause you're still feeling the pain/I know that every since that day/ Everything became so strange/It was for me, too/Never wanted to leave you but like what's best for me ya gotta do what's best for you/For that it was my time and your time is coming, too/For you to become a star doing what you were blessed to do/So no matter where you go, just know that I gotcha/And no matter what they say no one can ever stop ya/I told her that I hear her/I wish that she was nearer/And even though I miss her/Sometimes I just can feel her/Told her I get it/Told her that I'm listening/That ima stay committed even though a piece is missing/And when I go through trials promise ima still get it so get ready to wrap me in your wings and tell me that I did it/I did it/Because of you I stayed with it/With it/ For you I did it/I did it/I did it/Because of you, I did it/Because of you I stayed with it/Because of you/I did it, I did it/Yeah

Hook
My angel/My shining star/My angel/That's what you are/My angel/My shining star/My angel/That's what you are/My angel/My shining star/My angel/My superstar/My angel/My shining star/My angel/Yeah, yeah, yeah
My angel/My shining star/My angel/That's what you are/My angel/My shining star/My angel/That's what you are/My angel/My shining star/My angel/My superstar/My angel/My shining star/My angel/Yeah, yeah, yeah
