Rise and Shine. 

I know it’s been a min since I left you trippinTo figure it out on your own 

Now they over here screaming 

Take it up a notch 

Take it take it up a notch

Take it up a notch 

Take it take it up a notch 

Stretchin out that long neck

Till is disconnects, misrepresents those dreams you’ve been fighting for.

Tip toe, dance across those fine lines

We call boundaries, because they ain’t got no boundaries.

Chew on your words, swallow it’s it meaning, 

Spitting it out like sinful delight 

This is what they wanna leave you with. 

Now they over here screaming

Take it up a notch 

Take it take it up a notch

Take it up a notch 

Take it take it up a notch

These notches that threaten 

To put a damper if we keep going the way we’ve been going 

But you’re over here screamin

I can take it 

I can take it take it 

I can take it 

I can take it take it 

But ya can’t 

Can’t take being stretched thin

When you’ve had too much I find you 

Crumbled under the sheets 

As though you were crumpled under these rocks 

Threatening to smash the love out of you

Cast stones in my direction 

For defying abusive tradition 

When I left. 

Over here screaming 

Hit’em girl hit’em hit’em 

Drag’em girl drag’em drag’em 

Laughing at the misuse of fists. 

This is what ya’ll call love. 

Nah, why would I become the abuser 

For a liar, thief, waster of time 

Ain’t we too great for that shit 

Why tear myself apart with hands 

That could easily replicate the damage 

That cause cracks to deepen

Iimbs to hang off bone

Bones that can barely hold itself up.

It’s time to replenish. 

So I’m over here screaming 

Time to walk away 

Time to time to walk away 

Time to walk away 

Time to time to walk away 

Cuz why would I want someone 
Who doesn’t want me 

Why fight, expend energy, cry tears 

Over love that don’t want me

Didn’t want me to begin with 

Would’ve been easy had they kept it a buck 

But when you’re lonely as fuck 

You hold on to people 

Like a child’s prized toy 

Forgetting that I was never yours to own in the first place. 

Insecurity got you runnin in circles 

Lookin uncomfortable 

I bask in the warmth of the unknown 

I gotta weed out the unpleasantries 

Replant love seeds so I grow roses from vine like tresses 

Until skin leaks lavender 

And my womb births lilies 

Over here screaming 

Forgive ‘Em forgive ’em

Cuz we love’em we love’em 

Forgive ‘Em forgive ’em

Cuz we love’em we love’em 

– rise & shine | letting go
