There's an eye pleasing, well meaning
soft speaking love waiting for me.
Don't wanna ill treating, conceited thug
hating on me

It's not a heartbreaking, painstaking
love chasing future I see
Cause I've gotta earth shaking, ah-mazing love waiting for me

I'm no longer seeking what the future holds
I'm ok not seeing my fortune unfold
The mystery's unleashing a faith that's so bold
A feeling of just being and trust in my soul

That there's an eye pleasing, well meaning, soft speaking love waiting for me.
Don't wanna ill treating, conceited thug
hating on me

It's not a heartbreaking, painstaking
love chasing future I see
Cause I've gotta earth shaking, ah-mazing love waiting for me

I'm no longer reeling from pain of the past
All my wounds are healing I'm on greener grass
There's just a feeling coming on really fast
Of a future so appealing I know it's gonna last

There's no mistaking he's making his way in
toooo my life
That's why I'm waiting, anticipating
being his wife
I'll wait and wait and wait and wait
Cause he'll be right on time
I'll wait and wait and wait and wait
Cause I won't be denied

When there's an eye pleasing, well meaning soft speaking love waiting for me.
Don't wanna ill treating, conceited thug
hating on me

It's not a heartbreaking, painstaking
love chasing future I see
Cause I've gotta earth shaking, ah-mazing love waiting for me

Waiting For Me

She finally made good on her threat,
packed her things, said bye and left
Though avoiding is what I do best,
I can’t ignore what's in my chest

My first thought was heart attack
but I think I’m much too young for that
At times it feels like I've been stabbed
this pain’s really got me jacked

I know the pain of busting up my knees
of getting punched until my dam nose bleeds
The pain of wrecking my Classic E six-three
but it's so much worse than these
It’s the pain you can’t explain.
The pain that calls her name
The pain you can't explain

I asked my boss if I could leave,
He said “Why? You don’t look sick to me”
I said it’s not something that you can see
it’s deep down inside of me

I’d rather lie on a bed of nails.
I could grasp the pain of being impaled
But when you can’t touch what makes you ail,
now that’s the pain that feels like Hell!

I know the pain of busting up my knees
of getting punched until my dam nose bleeds
The pain of wrecking my Classic E six-three
but it’s so much worse than these
It’s the pain you can’t explain
The pain that calls her name
The pain you can't explain

It’s like I picture her with someone else.
And my heart burns until it melts
My stomach turns in on itself.
Cause she’s not concerned that I’m in Hell!

My friends have a remedy;
two shots of Jack and a puff of weed
That used to sound so good to me
but I know that won’t make it cease

There’s a lesson here of that I’m sure,
it’s a woman needs to feel secure
And if I hadn’t been so immature,
I’d have given her that and so much more

I know the pain of busting up my knees
of getting punched until my dam nose bleeds
The pain of wrecking my Classic E six-three
but it's so much worse than these
It’s the pain you can’t explain
The pain that calls her name
The pain you can't explain

Lord Here's My Heart

I saw it in my mother but who knew back then
that it was something other than her cycle kicking in
One minute she was happy and the next she'd throw a fit
Threatening to slap me just for acting like a kid
So sad she left this Earth without ever knowing why
she felt that she'd been cursed; a victim of her own mind

If you see someone in trouble
battling demons from within
Support them in their struggle
Get some help for them
When you feel the darkness
slowly creeping in
Try your very hardest
to reach out to a friend

I saw it in my Auntie when we were visitin'
Her mood swings still haunt me, it was as if she had a twin
One minute she was loving; the next she'd send us running home
All you people do is bug me. Please leave me the hell alone
And that is how she died; all alone by herself
I remember how I cried wishing I'd done more to help

If you see someone in trouble
battling demons from within
Support them in their struggle
Get some help for them
When you feel the darkness
slowly creeping in
Try your very hardest
to reach out to a friend

We are not supposed to be
left alone in misery
I'm your keeper; you are mine
tho you can't touch my injury
Look deeper for the signs that say,
"No I am not fine. I am not ok."

I need a promise from everyone I know
Please be honest. If you're not okay say so
Someone knows your struggles, someone really cares
Life can be a jungle that's why it helps to share

If you feel the darkness
slowly creeping in
please try your very hardest
to reach out to a friend

The Kingdom By T.E. Vera

If you could only see that I'm lonely
If you still want me better show me
I know I'm free to leave you don't own me
Some boy is calling me and I'm going

You say you're in the streets making money
I know you're trying to creep with your homey
Some boy's inviting me to get cozy
My friends encouraged me and I'm going

I'm going to pursue
Another avenue
I'm moving on from you
Trying something new
I'm going

I found my self esteem and I'm growing
I'll let it take me where the winds blowing
It's time for you to reap what you're sowing
Some boy is calling me and I'm going

You know it's hurting me but I'm coping
I know you'll berate me say I'm hoe-ing
I waited patiently, no proposing
Get out the way now please, cause I'm going

This goes way beyond who's right or wrong
You've left me no option but to move on
If we were at an auction I'm going going gone

I'm going to pursue
Another avenue
I'm moving on from you
Trying something new
I'm going

I'm Going By T.E. Vera

That's just her way
It doesn't ruffle me
Its in her DNA
Tho it puzzles me
Why she can't just say
What the trouble be
Just keeps me at bay
It's such a mystery

20 years of bliss we found the sweet spot
Never call it quits no matter whose fault
The advice we share when things get fraught
Is close your ears and just don't talk

That's just his way
I don't understand
Why emotional displays
Say weakness to a man
Always trying to portray
That desert island
Because he's so afraid
Of a new horizon

20 years of bliss we found the sweet spot
Never call it quits no matter whose fault
The advice we share when things get fraught
Is close your ears and just don't talk

No we can't be swayed no matter how critical
To express our dismay even tho we're miserable
We'd rather walk away than be difficult

That's just our way
We're traditional
Roles that we play
Reflect the biblical
We go about our day
Making things livable
By staying out the way
And being invisible

20 years of bliss we found the sweet spot
Never call it quits no matter whose fault
The advice we share when things get fraught
Is close your ears and just don't talk

Don't Talk
