Track Name: Movin' On
Starin' at the stars out my window
I've been dancin' with my thoughts all night
Spinnin' all that jazz on my stereo
Got those voices in my head, left and right
Sippin' on that old champagne
Got me drinkin' and drivin' down Memory Lane
And I been waitin' and wishin' (wishin')
Hopin' and hurtin' (hurtin')
I just have to make it stop
I'm movin' on (movin' on)
'Cause there's way too many things that been holdin' me back
I'm movin' on
Don't care what anybody says I won't be turnin' back, yeah
Starin' at the screen on my cell phone
I've been dealin' with the truth and lies
Searchin' where the thrill has gone
Got that feelin' comin' up in my eyes
Sippin' on your pink champagne
Got me drinkin' and drivin' down Lover's End
And I been waitin' and wishin' (wishin')
Hopin' and hurtin' (hurtin')
I just have to make it stop
I'm movin' on (movin' on)
'Cause there's way too many things that been holdin' me back
I'm movin' on
Don't care what anybody says I won't be turnin' back
Sometimes I feel like I just can't keep on
(I feel like I just can't keep on)
Sometimes I wonder if I can go on
(I wonder if I can go on)
But I know I'll be pickin' up myself when I'm down
I'm movin' on (movin' on)
'Cause there's way too many things that been holdin' me back
I'm movin' on
Don't care what anybody says I won't be turnin' back, no !
Track Name: Stop Playin' Games
You call me up on the phone
You been thinkin' of me
Said you tired of bein' alone
You miss my sexuality
I tell you come by later
But you don't know when you gon' be free
I asked you 'baby, what's the matter'
And then you hang up on me
I can't stand it
When I can tell you want some more
I gotta have it
So what the hell you waitin' for ?
Stop playin' games
I don't know what you tryna do
If you like playin' games
I ain't got that kind of time for you
Stop playin' games
I'll call you in a day or two
If you're still playin' games
I guess I'm not the man for you
I'm not the man, I'm not the man
I'm not the man, I'm not the man for you
It's been far too long
I've been hurtin' over you
I can tell that something's wrong
Not everything you say is true
That may be fine for other men
But I'm not gonna be your fool
Don't even try to play again
It's gon' be game over for you
I can't stand it
When I can tell you want some more
I gotta have it
So what the hell you waitin' for ?
Stop playin' games
I don't know what you tryna do
If you like playin' games
I ain't got that kind of time for you
Stop playin' games
I'll call you in a day or two
If you're still playin' games
I guess I'm not the man
Not the man for you
I thought I'd let you know
I really loved you so
I don't wanna let you go
But I don't play no games
No games, no games, no games, ha
(Stop playin' games)
I don't have that
You don't have that
We don't have that
Nobobody has that kinda time
Don't have that kinda time
Track Name: Since You Been Away
Since you been away so long
Now I'm out to find what's wrong
Since you been away so long
Now I'm out to find what's wrong
Girl I'll never fall so shine
Constantly you're on my mind, yeah
Since you been away so long
Now I'm out to find what's wrong, girl
(Since you been away so long)
See you thru a distant stare
Knowing that your love is near
Since you been away so long
Now I'm out to find what's wrong, girl
Twinkle twinkle little star
Now your love is near not far, I can feel it
(Since you been away so long)
Since you been away so long
Never been so lonely
Since you been away so long
Now I'm out now I'm out
Now I'm out to see what's wrong
Now I'm out to see what's wrong
I been thinkin' bout you
I been thinkin' bout you
I been thinkin' bout you
Every minute, every day and every night
'S like I can't help myself
It's like I can't help myself
I love you
Track Name: Glamour Profession
Six o'five, outside the stadium
Special delivery for Hoops McCann
Brut and charisma
Poured from the shadow where he stood
Looking good
He's a crowd pleasing man
One on one he's schoolyard superman
Crashing the backboard he's Jungle Jim, again
When it's all over
We'll make some calls from my car
We're a star
It's a glamour profession
The L.A. concession
Local boys will spend a quarter
Just to shine the silver bowl
Livin' hard will take its toll
Illegal fun
Under the sun, boys
All aboard the Carib Cannibal
Off to Barbados just for the ride, yeah
Jack with his radar
Stalking the dread moray eel
At the wheel
With his Eurasian bride
Out on town, we dress for action (action)
Celluloid bikers is Friday's theme
I drove the Chrysler
Watched from a distance while they danced
I'm the one
It's a glamour profession
The L.A. concession
Local boys will spend a quarter
Just to shine the silver bowl
Livin' hard will take its toll
Illegal fun
Under the sun, boys
(How 'bout we go see some birds in Trinidad ?)
Hollywood
I know your middle name
Who inspires your fabled fools
That's my claim to fame
Jive Miguel he's in from Bogota
Meet me at midnight at Mr. Chow's
Szechuan dumplings
Now that the deal has been done
I'm the one
It's a glamour profession
The L.A. concession
Local boys will spend a quarter
Just to shine the silver bowl
Livin' hard will take its toll
Illegal fun
Under the sun, yeah
Illegal fun
Under the sun, boys
That's right
Track Name: Rolodexes
Way back in double-o-eight
On the very first day you got out on parole
All jacked up, you could not wait
'I got so many new connects, boy I'm on a roll'
Tonight you picked me up
Rollin' somethin' like a couple hundred G's
Top floor, we goin' up, and you're
Sittin like a damn ghost, on a mountain of cheese
All those years are gone and here you are
Burnin' up your life and your cigar
Hidin' out your fear and your big scar
One day you'll realize
Well, you been livin' a lie
(Rolexes, Lexus, luxury cards displayed in rolodexes)
You been livin' a lie
(Rolexes, Lexus, luxury girls displayin' their waxed sexes)
You been livin' alone
(Rolexes, Lexus, luxury cards displayed in rolodexes)
You been livin' a lie
(Rolexes, Lexus, luxury cases full of bad excuses)
You been livin alone
(Rolexes, Lexus, luxury cards displayed in rolodexes)
You been livin' a lie, oh lord
(Rolexes, Lexus, luxury girls displayin' their waxed sexes)
You been livin' alone, livin' alone, livin' alone
(Rolexes, Lexus, luxury cards displayed in rolodexes)
You been livin' a lie
(Rolexes, Lexus, luxury cases full of bad excuses)
One day you'll realize
Well, you been' livin' alone
Track Name: Charge It To The Game
Another night and one last dance
You never had another chance
Somebody paid for all your sins
Now don't act a fool
Even though we cool
I think you know the rule
It ain't a thang
Just don't explain
There's no need to lie
I know you understand
When your luck won't feel the same
I will charge it to the game
It ain't a thang
Simple and plain
There's no need to cry
All good things have an end
When your life will leave the frame
I will charge it to the game
Another night and one last walk
A 45 shined in the dark
Somebody said "We need to talk"
I won't act a fool
Even though I'm cool
I still know the rule
It ain't a thang
Just don't explain
There's no need to lie
U know I understand
When my luck won't feel the same
I will charge it to the game
It ain't a thang
Simple and plain
I won't even die
See you down there, my friend
When my life will leave the frame
I will charge it to the game
