Baltimore

Baltimore
Oh, oh

Nobody got N nobody's way
So guess U could say it was a good day
At least a little better than the day N Baltimore
Does anybody hear us pray 4 Michael Brown or Freddie Gray?
Peace is more than the absence of war

Absence of war, R we gonna C another bloody day?
We're tired of cryin' & people dyin'
Let's take all the guns away
Absence of war, U & me
Maybe we can finally say enuff is enuff, it's time 4 love
It's time 2 hear, it's time 2 hear the guitar play
Guitar play

Baltimore evermore
Oh!
If there ain't no justice then there ain't no peace {repeat}
Oh
Baltimore, Baltimore
Please, please, please dance, keep on dancin' now

Absence of war, R we gonna C another bloody day? (No...)
We're tired of the cryin' & people dyin' (Ooh)
Let's take all the guns away
If there ain't no justice then there ain't no peace {repeat}
Baltimore
Ooh... (Absence of war)
Ooh...
"We have 2 interrupt the regular scheduled programming
2 bring U up 2 date on a developing situation N Los Angeles"

Rocknroll Loveaffair

Yeah...

She believed N fairy tales & princes
He believed the voices comin' from his stereo
He believed N rock 'n' roll
She left her past & those lillywhite fences
& headed out 2 Hollywood N search of her soul
But she had 2 pay the toll
Yes she did, mm

They were bound 2 find each other
He needed proof, she needed a brother
That's when stars collide
When there's space 4 what U want & ur heart is open wide

Wait a minute
He gave up women 4 the stripes of the road
& learned the meaning of grace
That's when his cup overflowed
Mmm & she said, "Hello"
He said, "My faith keep me from willin' but U know that 'm able
& if there's some room, 'd like 2 sit at ur table"
& she said, "It's tight but think can fit U N"

This kind of love don't come from a prayer
Ain't talkin' rebound born of despair
Yellow sun risin' on their bodies N bed
2 people N love with nothin' but the road ahead

Ah yeah, oh
Alright, mm
Ooh...
Oh baby
Let's go, mm

She believed N fairy tales & princes
He believed N jazz, rhythm 'n' blues & this thing called soul
Uh, he believed N rock 'n' roll

Hear me
She wanted 2 C her name appear on the big screen
He just wanted 2 hear her scream his name
Can U scream my name?
Do U know what mean?
Hmm?

This kind of love don't come from a prayer
Ain't talkin' rebound born of despair
Yellow sunrise on bodies N bed
2 people N love with nothing but the road ahead

Rock rock love affair
Rock rock love affair
Oh
Rock rock love affair

2 Y. 2 D.

Ooh

Every man that meets her wants 2 give her his name
She's 2 hot 4 words & 2 wise 2 tame
She's got knee-high boots & e-o-lectric hair
She's born 2 B a rock star, swear
Yeah
She's got 9 lives with a couple more 2 spare
She's old enuff 2 do ya but 2 young 2 dare
2 young, 2 young 2 dare (2 young, 2 young 2 dare)

She got a kick drum brain full o' technology
But just enuff old school 2 know where the party B
She talks about the top as if she's always been there
Like a member of the chosen few rarified heirs
Yeah
Her legs so long, she never climbs stairs
She's old enuff 2 do ya but 2 young 2 dare
2 young, 2 young 2 dare (2 young, 2 young 2 dare)

Yeah
2 young, 2 young 2 dare
2 young, 2 young 2 dare

2 fine 4 "Idol," 2 smart 4 "The X-Factor"
Internet beauty, everybody wanna hack her
The world can only wonder right up until
They hear the juicy gossip that's N her will
Until then we can just pretend
That she's old enuff 2 do ya, old enuff 2 do ya
Old enuff 2 do ya but she's just 2 young 2 dare

2 young 2 dare (2 young, 2 young 2 dare)
2 young 2 dare, oh
Hahaha
2 young 2 dare

Look At Me, Look At U

Whoa yeah, oh

Look at me, tell me what U C
The back & 4th of an earthquake or a strong & sturdy tree?
ask myself this question but it's still a mystery
How 'm gonna keep my balance when look at U?
How can U not know?
Standing over there like a Nefertiti or the queen Dido
Please don't think 2 ill of me but it's all that can do
Not 2 feel myself when look at U

Modesty aside, whoever made ya should B praised (Yes)
Ain't no need 2 hide, every glass should B raised
Brandy or martini, kudos overdue, uh
What else is there, really, when look at U?

Fight it, yes, my soul has tried but when U look at me
All the other women just roll their eyes
But even Ray Charles can C (U)
Stevie Wonder can 2
Thoughts well up & wonder, thinkin' about me & U
A dozen fantasies, yeah
Call me "1 & Done" when U look at me

Look at U look at me

Stare

Oh baby

1st thing's 1st, we like U 2 stare
We used 2 go on stage N our underwear
We changed up, we got a brand new beat
Now we got the sound that's poppin' N the street
They all stare
Can I help U?
Everybody jam cuz this party's goin' ham, just stare
Can I help U?
Ain't nobody stoppin' cuz we got this party poppin' now
Whoo

2nd things 1st, we know U got thirst
But we like it when U fiendin' 4 the funk until it hurts yo hair
Can U blame me?
Every time U whip it 2 the beat, it make a brotha just stare
Sister freak me
Nobody got a chance
U need 2 back up & let me show U how 2 dance
Oh yeah
Stare
Can get a kiss?

(Hold on)
I pull out at 2
Hurry ma and tell me what U wanna do?
Do U wanna? {panting}
Do U wanna? {panting}
Sexy dancer {panting}
Sexy dancer (Do U wanna?) {panting}

(Do U wanna?) {panting}
U don't want us naked cuz U know we couldn't take it
But we like it when U shake it, baby, careful not 2 break it
(Do U wanna?) {panting}
Don't break it, baby
Don't break it now
Oh

Last things last, I need ur number fast
'd rather let the music talk while U & me walk n2 the past
N2 the past
Until then

Stare {repeat}

When She Comes

When she comes
When she, when she comes

When she comes
Always unexpected but never rejected surprise
It's always a shock when he undoes the lock
& she's there without a care when she comes

When she comes
The house is always a mess
She's cool nevertheless
& here's Y, here's Y
She remains, as we say, a sweet bird of prey
She flies & she's satisfied when she comes

A limoncello ballet, a psychedelic cabaret N his mind
Oh, N his mind
Without further adieu he takes off her shoes
& whatever confines when she comes

When she comes
A blue bed of roses, she never closes her eyes
4 his artful technique deserves a peek
Call it sublime cuz it happens when she comes

So, oh, sweet the taste
The tears that roll down her face don't cry
No, they don't cry
Tho sad at 1st sight, they'r filled with delight
The 4th of July when she comes
Oh, when she, when she, ooh, comes

Screwdriver

Everyday when wake up, gotta make up
Another reason 2 make it last
Miss mistake up if we break up
We'll smash guitars & shatter glass
But till the day that we do
'm ur driver & U'r my screw

Everywhere that we go now, there's a show now
People pay money 4 the rock 'n' roll
& the big wow b4 we bow
U can call me "C.C." crowd control
But if U don't want 2, it's cool
Cuz 'm ur driver

Empty car on a fast train N the driving rain
can make U swear that U did some thang
What U don't know won't hurt U so
We got a long, long way 2 go
Might as well enjoy the view
'm ur driver & U'r my screw
U said U were my screw
Ooh-wee-ooh

About 2 tell U a story again
Sharing stories & cool clothes & party toes
This is what life is like on the road
Never 2 high, never 2 low
That's the only way 2 go
But right now without further adieu
'm ur driver & U'r my screw

'm ur driver & U'r my screw
'm ur driver & U'r my screw (U'r my screw)
'm ur driver & U'r my screw
'm ur driver & U'r my screw (Ooh-wee-ooh...)
Oh
Hey!

Counterclockwise, turn U around
All U got 2 do is listen 2 the sound
The music never lies, U know it's true
ain't even got 2 U know who
Time, we got plenty of
4ever is worth its wait when it comes 2 love
'm ur driver & U'r my screw {repeat}

Might as well enjoy the view
'm ur driver & U'r my screw

Black Muse / 1,000 Light Years Away

Black Muse, can talk 2 U?
What got 2 share is mighty good news
A brand new day is dawning but U & me know what 2 do
So much work 2 do now

Black Muse, we've been so abused
Our mothers were good-lookin' & our fathers were 2
But if they don't stay 2gether
We can't walk no better N these shoes
Black Muse

Long ago 2 men held 1 of us down
Another took a whip & made a terrible sound
Baby watched her father fallin' down 2 the ground
That was U & me

Black Muse, can share with U?
Just came this mornin' & it's mighty good news
They tipped the hour glass, now everything is passed
It's true

They gave the world back 2 U & me
With faces on the mountains & a dirty sea
A trillion dollar bill & no currency
Still we believe

Black Muse, we gonna make it thru
Surely, people that created rhythm & blues
Rock 'n' roll & jazz so U know were built 2 last
It's cool... (Black Muse)
Ooh-wee-ooh
Ooh-wee-ooh (Black Muse...)
Black Muse...

A new day is dawning Black Muse
A new day is dawning Black Muse
Do do do...
Da da da...

Ooh oh
Oh yeah, oh

Now that got ur attention
think it's about time mention
The reason Y wrote this song
Like a UFO sighting
From my heart am writing
The next close encounter, tell me how long?
Will it B on land or near the water?
Mmm, will it produce the sun or the black moon daughter?
Or a pillow covered with all our tears?
1000 light years away from here
1000 light years from here...
1000 light years away from here
1000 light years from here... (Oh yeah)

No yesterday or 2morrow
No better remedy 4 sorrow
& Y the 5th held 4ever will make U cry
I don't know Y

1000 light years from here
1000 light years from here

Well, 2 unbroken circles joined 2gether make a butterfly
Little darling, don't U wanna try? (I wanna try)
There ain't nothin' better than lookin' 4 me (Lookin' 4 me 2)
& seeing U (Seeing me)
Seeing U N the mirror 1000 light years away from here
Y do we always seem so far away?
When U know that really wanna B with U night & day
'm runnin' out of ways 2 say how
So think 'll just close 4 now

Revelation

Revelation
Revelation

It's coming back 2 me now
U & I were meant 2 B 2gether, & how
Revelation
Revelation

It seems like U've always been here
Now that U R, stay with me 4ever, my dear
Revelation
Oh
Revelation

Ooh

If ever there was ever such a thing as time
Ooh, babe
It's useless, so useless 2 me now
4 N ur arms is everything, N ur arms, everything
An army of haters 1 by 1
Will do what they will 2 every1
But the task at hand until we C the sun
Is 2 keep doin' U until U come 2 revelation
Revelation...
Ooh-oh
Can play with it now?

Can ... play with it now?
Oh

It's all coming back 2 me now
Like it was deep N the ocean
beat my sword n2 a plow
& shared a heavenly potion with a future queen
Oh yeah
Half-east, half-west
The truth somewhere best N-between

Thru English glamour casting spell
Thru Hebrew, Greek & Roman hell
Higher until we overstand
The color of the Pharaoh's hand

Big City

Alright U Polaroids, let's go! (Oh yeah...)
Mm, we're N the big city
Whoo, uh, c'mon (Ooh)
Oh
Mm yeah
Wee, oh yeah

Wherever we R, it's a big city
Dirty little hotel room or workin' on a farm
If everybody's a star, 2 me, U'r the most pretty
'm N the big city, big city, big city
When 'm N ur arms (Hey)

Bright lights, a sea of faces
Somethin' tells me this is gonna B fun
2night's the night & of all the places
That 'm gonna fall N love, it's got 2 B this 1
There'll never B anybody happier than this
Let's make a vow & seal it with a kiss (Oh yeah)

Wherever we R, it's a big city
Dirty little hotel room or workin' on a farm
If everybody's a star, 2 me, U'r the most pretty
'm N the big city, big city, big city
When 'm N ur arms

It's our time
We're N line 4 the big break
Everything is lookin' up when U'r this low 2 the ground
It's 'bout time everybody's on the take
Let's get a big brush & paint this town
The night is young, much younger than we R
Let's kiss the night away N a fast car (Oh yeah)

Wherever we R, it's a big city
Dirty little hotel room or workin' on a farm
If everybody's a star, 2 me, U'r the most pretty
'm N the big city, big city (& me)
Big city when I'm N ur arms (Oh yeah) (Oh)

Gettin'
Everybody's gettin' money instead of gettin' saved
Not U & me, honey, we already gave
Just as long as I got U, don't care come what may
Well
We're N the big city
Oh
We're N the big city
Now sing
She's N the big city
Breakdown

just came 2 tell y'all
From the darkest desperation 2 the highest bliss
Power 2 the ones aware there's nothin' bigger than this
Big city
Uh, where's my guitar?
Whoo
What's goin' on?
What's goin' on? Everything good, c'mon!

Wherever we R, it's a big city (Uh)
Dirty little hotel room or workin' on a farm (Ooh)
If everybody's a star, 2 me, U'r the most pretty
(& everybody, 2 me, so pretty)
The big city, big city, big city when 'm N ur arms (Oh yeah...)

Wherever we R, it's a big city (Oh yeah)
Dirty little hotel room or workin' on a farm (Takin' back the land)
If everybody's a star, 2 me, U'r the most pretty (Give it 2 the next man)
I'm N the big city, big city (But U gotta plan)
Big city when 'm N ur arms (We'll C & U... what U wanna do?)
Ooh (That's it)
