Miss Sharon Jones
I'm sorry
for all these years of your hard work and even harder earned SUCCESS
I took you for granted
like the way that after all my years of hard work I've all too often taken myself for granted

Please forgive me
Miss Sharon Jones
For assuming you'd always be here
like your blood, sweat & tears
would just stay up there on the stage
never to evaporate
Of course
It's your Spirit
Your Legacy
Your indomitable
SOUL
That lives on
That'll live forever
However
You in the flesh
Did not
Could not
Yet the fact of your inevitable earthly expiration does not make this loss any easier
Hell No!
This hurts
In a way that's all too
Familiar
Hallow resignation
Habitual rejection
By folks like record producers
Who told you
You're too short, too Black, too old, too fat
When in fact
You are FABULOUS
And beautiful
What you endured
I know
Yet can never fully absorb
And neither did you
YOU
Who even worked with the Rikers Island Prison team en route to your destiny
Rightfully beginning to be recognized for your musical gifts in your forties

I LOVE YOU
Miss Sharon Jones
Queen of the Dap-Kings
For refusing
To resign
To be defined
To back down
To shut up
To give up
YOU
Who proclaimed
"I have cancer; cancer don't have me!"

THANK YOU
Miss Sharon Jones
For sharing your fire,
For showing your fierceness
For engaging with your FIGHT
And inspiring with your FUNK
YOU
Who despite whatever stage of cancer & page in your recovery
Got back UP
In rare form
PERFORMIN'
UP on that Big Stage
SHOUTIN'
For cancer to
"Get UP & Get OUT!"
YOU
Who sang
~ And ohhh was you SANGIN' ~
"You'll Be Lonely After I'm Gone"
And, while that void
That empty feelin'
That depleted river
Runs deep
I vow to
Hold your memory dear
Turning lonely into
Living Legacy
While
I'm
Still
Here

Ode to Miss Sharon Jones

VERSE 1:
Is it selfish for me to love you,
Unconditionally?
Does it hurt for me to miss you,
So desperately?
Do you know what I could give you, would give to, have been thru?
Do you know that I just need you…
Just need you to forgive me?…
(Cuz……)

CHORUS:
These tears, these fears,
They do comfort me.
(And……)
In all these years,
You're the one that broke me free.

VERSE 2:
Do you care that I've been crying…myself to…
can't sleep thru…
Don't you get that I've been trying,
I'm in much
too deep to…
Can you feel that I've been lying alone,
Do you hear me?
I won't be silent no more!
(Cuz……)

CHORUS:
These tears, these fears,
They do comfort me.
(And……)
In all these years,
You're the one that broke me free.

BRIDGE:
If it's not meant to be then
Why does it hurt so bad?
If I'm runnin' away then
Why do I keep comin' back?
If you're no longer feelin' me then
Why…
Do I…
Stiiiiiiill…
Feel yooooou…?
(I do feel you,
I'm still your boo)

RAP:
What does it feel like…
To have my heart
Broke open in your hands?
Oh don't you realize…
Love is continuous
Never end-in'
Boy you send my swangin'
Got my swinging in my sheets
And SANGIN' to earn my keep
See I realize your love is…
Sweet yet empty,
Your textin' ain't fufillin' me
Your killin' me
Yet givin' me breath
And tho this feels right,
I'm still asking for
Forgiveness

(Cuz……)

CHORUS:
These tears, these fears,
They do comfort me.
(And……)
In all these years,
You're the one that broke me free.

I BElieve in Romance & Unicorns

So hiiiiiiigh
(I wanna feel so high)

[Verse 1]

Love

I do believe in my self-worth
Ain't nothin' wrong in puttin' myself first!

[Chorus]

[Verse 2]

Life
Is for the living
And finding joy in what you're giving
I lived and learned to love myself
Now I can share me with somebody else.

[Chorus]

So High

Oooooh-OOH!

Just like the caged bird SANGS
Love's supposed to set you free
But I can keep spreadin' my WINGS
With these chains you puttin' on me
What we had was REEEAL now
Don'chu go gettin' me wrong

But now my wings are itchin' 
And oh you betta listen
I ain't gon' stay like this long 

You see I don't want to do this
NO MOOOOO'
NO MOOOOO'
NO MOOOOO'

You can't keep playin' wid my MIIIND
NO MOOOOO'
NO MOOOOO'
NO MOOOOO'

You see I DON'T want to DOO THIS
NO MOOOOO'
NO MOOOOO'
NO MOOOOO'

Can't keep on hurtin' inside
NO MOOOOO'
NO MOOOOO'
NO MOOOOO'

When I told that I LOVED you
You felt me comin' too strong
But you loved to CONTROOL ME
And read the signals all wrong
What we had was SPECIAL
No sense in that bein' downplayed

But now we're out of rhythm 
And there's no rhyme or reason
For us to keep on this way

You see I don't want to do this
NO MOOOOO'
NO MOOOOO'
NO MOOOOO'

You can't keep makin' me CRRRRY
NO MOOOOO'
NO MOOOOO'
NO MOOOOO'

You see I DON'T want to DOO THIS
NO MOOOOO'
NO MOOOOO'
NO MOOOOO'

Won't put my LOVE on the line
NO MOOOOO'
NO MOOOOO'
NO MOOOOO'

Oooooh-OOH!

~ Freestyle Rap ~

What we had's like NO OTHER
And it HURTS like hell to throw it away
We shared stories of our GOOD times
Then laughed to understand our PAIN 
Our season turned too quickly
With summertime turnin' to gray
Now you're cold as ice
And I'm takin' my OWN advice

LOVE AIN'T ENUF TO STAAAAAAAAAY!

You see I don't want to do this
NO MOOOOO'
NO MOOOOO'
NO MOOOOO'

You won't put my love on the ground
NO MOOOOO'
NO MOOOOO'
NO MOOOOO'

You see I DON'T want to DOO THIS
NO MOOOOO'
NO MOOOOO'
NO MOOOOO'

You can't keep BREAKIN' me down
NO MOOOOO'
NO MOOOOO'
NO MOOOOO'

Break it DOOOOWN ~ OOH!
