Silver Tongue
Recorded spring 2004 and released via the NPG Music Club as a download (July 13, 2004). Written by Prince & Nikka Costa.

 
Love me while U watch the time
And if I falter or lose my rhyme
U will drop me like a useless dime
Cuz U ain't no friend of mine, no no

Steer me wrong and drop me off
From a swan dive 2 a bellyflop
The shallow waters that flood ur heart
Will 4ever keep us apart

U never cease 2 amaze me
Tho sometimes I just don't understand, no no
The chances U took 2 play ur hand
But U never took my love when it was here, oh

My heart's been thru it a thousand times
Like a fair fruit upon the vine
The shiny promise that fades with time
But the seeds r sown and the hope defined, oh

Such a sad way 2 lose someone, oh yes it is
2 live by, "Better said than done"
The song and dance that hides ur gun
From those who buy the silver from ur tongue

And U never cease 2 amaze me, uh-uh
But sometimes I just don't understand, I don't
The chances U took 2 play ur hand
But U never took my love when it was here, oh

The song and dance that hides ur gun
From those who buy the silver from ur tongue
