"You probably don't remember half the shit a nigga did for you/Yeah, you ain't really fuck with me way back then, girl how 'bout now?"

"From Time"

"The one that I needed was Courtney from Hooters on Peachtree/ I've always been feeling like she was the piece to complete me/ Now she engaged to be married, what's the rush on commitment? Know we were going through some shit, name a couple that isn't."

"Doing It Wrong"

"Take Care"

"And you can't sleep thinking that he lies still/ So you cry still, tears all on the pillowcase/ Big girls all get a little taste/ Pushing me away so I give her space/ Dealing with a heart that I didn't break." 

"Best I Ever Had"


"She doesn't ever worry If she wants it, she'll get it on her own/ She knows, there's more to life And she's scared, of ending up alone."

"Marvin's Room" 

"Fuck that nigga that you love so bad/I know you still think about the times we had/ I say fuck that nigga that you think you found/ And since you picked up, I know he's not around."
