Track Name: 40 Hours
You say I never had a plan, so I planned to fail,
An idle mind will leave you broke or you land in jail,
My father said these are the best years of my life,
I saw him in the hospital, I guess he was right,

I wake up, keep hitting the snooze,
Dreaming of when I'll break out,
Told myself I'm gone eat better food,
And I keep ordering take out,

I wake up, fruit, bacon, and eggs,
I hit the gym, get the chest and the legs,
Yep, then I hop up in the shower,
Yeah, then I drive about an hour,

St. Louis, LA, LA to Atlanta,
Look, I'm a bring in money, baby, I'm a man up,
You had me applying when I got home from shows,
A hundred dollars ain't enough to make a toast,
Now I know,
So I put in 40 hours,

Baby, I love you,
So I'm working 40 hours for you,

I remember coming up with TAK,
All we wanted was to put our peace and love out,
Look, I remember we had to dress up to just to get a listen,
And singing happy birthday to girls when the club out,

Got a Prius just to fit in, get in,
Ain't no winter in Los Angeles baby, but my Los Angeles lady, drove me Los Angeles crazy,
Word, word, word, I gotta handle it, 80,
80 degrees in January, you should sample it, yeah,
That's why I stayed at the beach, I couldn't handle it baby,

St. Louis, LA, LA to Atlanta,
Went back to engineering, they can keep the Grammys,

And that was goal number one,
Yeah, least I know I had some fun,

I had an indie label, no stars for you,
Ran out of money quick, no cars for you,
I guess a dream can be a money pit,
Woke up, caught a plane, now I money get,
And life ain't all about the cash but the cash keep the food coming fast in her mouth 'til she passing out,
And I'm a daddy now, so I'm working 40 Hours,

Baby Bella's here,
She ain't never working 40 Hours for nobody.
Track Name: Still Your Time
You should've been a model,
Then, it would make sense why you're (freaky),
Let's roll up to Chicago,
And get (freaky),
Cause sometime you should feel Summertime Chi,

In a boat on the lake with a boat in the sky,
Get high,

Ooh what, you mean to tell me you can't smoke no mo,
Cause you got yourself a good ass job,
I mean why they always hate on how you clear your mind,
And I just wanna clear your mind,
Ooh what, you mean to tell me you can't go no mo,
Cause you got yourself a new ass guy,
I mean why they always hate on how you spend your time,
I mean, really, ain't it still your time,

You've got me,
Freaky in the back of the hotel lobby,
Come on,
Don't you remember getting freaky in the back of the hotel lobby,

You say let's get a bottle,
When he goes out of town,
Well, YOLO is the motto,
So you know I'm down,

In the cold with a case of some coke and some wine,
Get by.
Track Name: Like You
Hey,
I need my sides,
I need my sides like,
I need my sides like a well balanced meal,
For real,

What good is a fantasy,
If I ain't the man you see,
Look, I'll take the penalty,
Cause, I like you,
We're under your canopy,
And you're on hands and knees,
You scream like a fan of me,
But, I like you,

You say you wanna find a time,
A time for me to bring your medication,
I say the same thing every time,
Look, I'll try to,
I think you know I ain't got time,
But you keep trying me, that's dedication,
I guess we both act like our signs,
Well, we got a right to,

Lately, I've been needing something to vibe to,
So, what you on tonight,
I think I'll ride through,

When I'm knee deep, I see what your eyes do,
Now don't be thinking I dos,
Just feel what I do when I do what I do,

What is life if we can't be happy,
And what is time if we can't be free,
I got your number with an elevator pitch,
And now I wanna delegate ya,
Then maybe escalate ya,
You want it faster like its Talladega,
And I'm just saying baby celebrate where we're at,
That's being one with nature,

I need all the flavors,
Cookie dough, chocolate, vanilla bean,
The way you're staring at me is hella mean,
Might have to dissipate this,
Or at least try to.
Track Name: Need It
Too young,

Baby, I feel like you won't maybe like what I say, but, hey,
Well, I was thinking on the subway, (Boy you always thinking on the subway)
Well, I'm glad I took the subway, (What you think about this time, boy?)

Cause my life gone end one day,
I wonder what my friends will say,
Cause they knew how I felt when I dealt with you,
And this pain,

She said,
I know your future,
I'm not in it,
And I won't be stupid no mo,
So gone get it,

Gone get it,
Gone on your own, gone get it,
Gone end up by yourself, gone get it,

I just need a little time, you'll find,
I act just like a man round the age of 25,
Yeah, it's a part of life that I have a quarter life crisis,
Like this, and I know that you're gonna miss my kiss,

Right then, she cried,
You said you loved me,
Did you mean it,
Oh, I hope you're thinking of me, oh,
When you'll need it,

You'll get older and I'll be long gone, long gone,
And you'll be on your own,
You'll need it,
You'll get older, I'll been have moved on,
You'll still be writing your songs about me,
Cause you'll need it,

I can't, I can't lie, she was on my mind,
Hotter than a summer night dream,
Yeah, mid-summer July,
My hello was her goodbye,
Cause sometime ago she fell in love with a good guy,
How could I,

Well, that turned into,
How could I propose to her,
Before he proposed to her,
Get close to her,
Before you know it, I could say she chose,
And wouldn't nobody know it,
Not her kinfolk,

You'll get older and I'll be long gone, long gone,
And you'll be on your own,
You'll need it,

My heart was picking up tempo,
I was so impolite,
Take my sins, no,
Well, least it was good for the moment,
Oh, she got a white dress,
They see her dimples,
I got a sentence,
Hope it's just 5 to 10,
Come on,

I take this penicillin,
Hoping I could kill the pain inside,
It's like it's genocide cause she was supposed to have my babies,
And now, at dinner time,
I'm ordering out,
Arguing about the tip I'm supposed to give them without even earning it,
I guess you learn to sit down,
When you're tired of running around,

And now I'm older,
And I'm still writing my songs about you,
Cause I need it.
Track Name: Electric
Memories,

And I'll keep writing,
I gotta keep trying,
Study you like Science,

For your electricity,
I'll sail the seven seas,
You're all I ever need,
You're all I ever needed,
Electric,

Handling your body,
Never get tired,
Think I know every inch,
End up soaking your panties 'til they drip,
Every time we plan it,
We go to another planet,
You can't stand my,
It's insanity,
And I got some jackets.
Track Name: Post Office
I need these beats to get my rhymes out my head,
I do this work to get my lines out the red,
I do the work, man I ain't lyin,

I wish a Negus could be lying in his bed,
But I been waiting on this like a line at a keg,
And this party's been on my calendar,
Gotta catcher like Salinger,
JD, what you done for me lately,
I think I'm way past crazy,
Bout three steps from gone,
Katie, I thought she was your lady,
Guess y'all not really gravy,
Cause I'm taking her home,
And she do everything, I didn't have to ask,
And she took everything, and didn't have a mask
I guess I left her with one,
She know to leave when I cum,

I need these beats to get my rhymes out my head,
I do this work to get my lines out the red,
I do the work, man I ain't lyin,

Heaux on heaux on heaux on heaux on heaux,
I get chose and keep these heaux on toes,
No mo red spaghetti o's on clothes,
Get the spinach heaux get on your boat,

I'm putting in 10,000 hours,
10,000 hours,
Doing the same thing everyday like the post office,

I need these beats to get my rhymes out my head,
I do this work to get my lines out the red,
I do the work, man I ain't lyin,

Maybe if I wasn't so got damn crazy,
I'd be chilling how I'm making a living,
Maybe if the radio would got damn play me,
I'd be chillin,

Instead, I'm doing the same thing everyday,
And it's driving me crazy like the post office.
Track Name: Limeade
I knew you then,
We would spend our time,
Just walking in the park,
And talking bout moving overseas,
But now you're far away,

You would come home,
You liked to party,
Who doesn't like to party,
Guess we met at a party,
But now you're gone for days,

I only ask what I'm willin' to know,
But what I don't wanna know is killing me yo,
You chill with me fast and then you grilling me slow,
'Was getting to know, getting to know you,

But I really don't ask what I'm not ready to know,

I left a message,
Another message,
Last message,
Then, I called your best friend to tell ya,
I haven't heard from ya,
Please don't shoot the messenger,

I knew you then,

She simply cried please help me,
Cause time won't tell me,

This is what she said,
Fourscore, two years ago,
You were here,
And now I'm pitiful,
Cause my pillow is the physical,
Replacement for your physical,

This is what I said,
You are so critical,
Looking through my camera,
So analytical,
See, I'm the smarter one,
I know just when to go,
Cause I loved you,
But, there was no reciprocal,

That's when she stopped and said,

Well, if you ever did,
Then, where's the evidence,
I held no one above you,
Thought you were heaven sent,
You said we'd be forever,
How quick forever went,
You shouldn't say I love you,
If it was never meant,

OK, I heard you,
And I understand,
Now babygirl, babygirl,
Won't you just listen,

I took some time out,
To comprehend my past,
Didn't think I'd find out,
That you should be my last,
By last, I mean, my first,
Sometimes in love it hurts,
I'm glad we realized this,
It could've been much worse,

Let's make up right now,
We're in our prime now,
Our second try now,
Future's so bright now,

Let's try again.
