Lyrics for  -  Out From Under

© 2006  What the Zuck Publishing

1. Out From Under

Said you will but, you still didn’t even once acknowledge me

I stood there alone

But, last night it felt right until you were all done with me

My heart turned to stone

You told me I was your man right down to the bitter end

How can you tell me all thing?

Without the feeling

Chorus

Without you, man, I thought I was nothing

Without you, man, I thought I would die, from a broken heart and

Without you, man, I thought I would crumble from the words that you said - goodbye

But, I’m coming out from under

 

Yes, I know I must go and so must you

But, underneath I wish I could stay

For a while

What’s a while?

While lying there right next to me

For one more evening

Well, I guess you’re just like them all

You keep me climbing the walls

Trying to figure you out...

Oh, what a pity

Chorus

 

I got news for you

It didn’t happen yet

You told me I was your man, right down to the bitter end

How can you tell me all this?

Without the feeling

I guess you’re just like them all

You keep me climbing the walls

Trying to figure you out...

Oh, what a pity

Chorus

2. Authenticity

I will tell you no lies

don’t read between the lines

Because there ain’t no lines to read 'Cause what it is you see is what it is you get; anything less, would aggravate my soul

Chorus 1

I just want to be living a life of peace and harmony

It’s something someone said once to me

It’s all a part of my authenticity

I feel scared some of the time

But I’m ready to unwind so don’t you aggravate me
'Cause
I’m done with feeling shame, well this rhyme ain’t no game

Well it’s plain and simple just like me

'Cause what it is you see is what it is you get and anything less, would aggravate my soul

Chorus 2

I don’t give a damn

As long as I am true to who I am

It’s something somewhat sacred to me

It’s all a part of my authenticity

I will tell you no lies….don’t read between the lines

Because it aggravates me

I wont settle for less; no time to regress

So take a guess

Who inspires my soul

Well, it comes from up above and it speaks from love

So go and aggravate some

Inspirate some

Intoxicate

someone else!

3. Peace of Me

Fortune; no reason

Why I play the fool

Scars don’t ignore me from failing Emotional school

If you come to stature

Without any crime

Look who spent the time

In my house; in my life.

We’ve been through so much

The ups and the downs

Now look who hears music

Music without the sound

Reason

More reasons

Layers upon this frown

Look who’s in the lost and not found

Chorus

Yeah, yeah, yeah

We spun around together

Like earth to sun

Now that we’re not together a peace of me is gone

Hard to ignore them; these feelings I’ve tried

It’s the path that I’m on

It’s the space that I occupy

Reason, more reasons to play somebody’s fool

Looks like I was the one who was cruel

Chorus

It’s been so long since the last I heard from you

Is it so wrong, so wrong to still be missing you?

Sometimes I think I really blew it

 

Chorus

4. Something Inside

I’ve been thinking about you; yes, all this time

And, it’s time

To get you down on the dance floor so you can be mine...

Yes, be mine - come on, give it one more try

Loving you is a feeling I can’t deny;

although I’ve tried

Your sexy beat and your rhythm keeps me satisfied - satisfied

Chorus

As for the rest of me there’s something inside (of me); you’ll see

I’ve got this picture; a perfect you in my eyes, but disguised

By fear of love and commitment

you’re just about to say your good-bye’s

Chorus

Am I worth the wait?

I hope so

Is finding true love that outrageous?

So, let’s be who we are

Your beauty on the inside is - Contagious

5. Guilt & Shame

Let’s take a walk down my past and see

All the people still staring at me

I close the window so fast

Thank God for miracles

Let’s take a walk down another street

Where the people all feel complete

It’s a different path that I see

I believe I will try

I take my love and a whole lot of faith

And my plan for my escape

Chorus

On the streets of guilt and shame

You won’t find - you won’t find my name

'Cause I don’t live there anymore

Like a frame on a movie screen

Where the actors are playing a scene

A scene I played in the past

Was insecure Mr. Stevens...

And there are times when I still get mad

'Cause I grew up without a dad

But, I still find myself singing and searching for the reasons

I was like a month without a season

A life that was filled with a whole lot of pain

Is now a trip down memory lane

Chorus

On the streets of guilt and shame you won’t find - you won’t find my name

I took my life in the ball and chain

Responsibility without the blame (but then I broke free from the pain)

6. Be Real

Who ever said finding love would be easy

I never thought finding love would be this hard

Night after night, I’m in those no end situations

Guess I’m tired of me putting up my guard

I never learned how to hide what I’m feeling

It always burns me when I have to play the game

So, let us try to be more in touch with our emotions

Come on take off your mask in life’s masquerade

And (just) (so) be real

Yes, be real

'Cause I’m tired of your inconsistencies

Ain’t it hard to be something that you really aren’t - so, be real

Yes, be real

And, your love keeps playing tricks on me

Even though I know what you do to me makes me strong

You say that you’ll call me but, I’m the fool sitting by the phone

Waiting for something that really ain’t nothing but the unknown

I guess its just another lesson

Yes, another way I have grown

Well, I know there is someone out there than what life has shown

Talk to me

Feel with me

Love made us strong

While you just tell me

You just tell me anything you want

Well I’m tired of your sympathy while your empathy is none

To be something else than myself

In it’s self

Yes, to me there’s something wrong

Just be real

Yes, be real

'Cause I’m tired of your inconsistencies

Even though I know what you do to me

Makes me strong

7. How long Am I

Suppose To Be Alone

That’s my life

Behind closed doors

Live and learn so I can

Cry some more

It’s that pain running through my vein

It’s a wonder I survived.

I hear the radio on …beside my bed

And it’s playing that same sad song

My doctor told me to be taking these meds, but my gut is telling me it’s wrong

I’m alone in bed

How my life is sad

Well, how am I suppose to live without you?

Feels like I’ve been had now this boy’s gone bad

How long am I suppose to be alone?  (that’s right)There I hide…upon that stage…Playing music even at my age...It’s that fame that calls my name

Makes aloneness feel alright...

My friends have told me that it’s just a phase…And it probably won’t last long…It’s been a year ago, one month and a day…So tell me phase, when will you be done?

Chorus

You set the stage of perfect memories…yet, I’m still searching for the sunshine...Those sunny days are now far in between

Who cares who’s wrong or who’s right?

Lying on my side, lying on my bed

Still thinking about those words you said

It’s a lonely place and a lonely time

'Cause it’s you I still got on my mind

I hear the radio on beside my bed

And it’s playing that same damn song

My doctor told me to be taking these meds

But, my gut is telling me it’s wrong

Chorus

8. If You'd Be With Me

I’ve been down the road less traveled You ain’t even on my path

Well, I’ve been hoping at least you’d be on my entrance ramp

Don’t lead me on

Don’t lead me on

Don’t leave me hanging either

If you knew then what you know now

We’d still be together

Every time I think about you, every time I dream about you

My hand gets wet

All the things I ever think about us When it comes to mind is the good and not the bad

If you’d be with me Would I feel complete?

Or, is it coming from the old mouth of my... insecurity

Well, I’ve been feeling lonely lately

Yes I’ve been feeling blue.

Mostly when my thoughts are on

If I’m ever gonna find someone out there who’s just like you

It’s that voice inside my head that tells me that I’m alone

So, the next time that voice rings me up

I won’t dare pick up the phone

 

Don’t treat me wrong, don’t treat me wrong, don’t treat me like nothing either.

While yes, you are without me

At least I know more about me

Then summer comes and winter comes and no one comes and I don’t come

To my own defense

It’s times like these I wish I had a better

This a better that and my life made more sense

If you’d be with me

Would I feel complete?

Or, is it coming from the old mouth of my insecurity

If you’d be with me and I made you mine 

 

Would we have the same feelings that we once left behind?

 

9. Soul Driver

I’ve been down that road before

A dark and foggy space

A space where I’ve been told

To shed some light and grace

So, I ask for sunshine

Upon the shadow

To get to the soul

In the eyes

There’s a window…

Soul Driver

Take me to my house of love

Soul Driver

Take me to my house of love…

Yeah, I’ve taken wrong turns

Stumbled upon my missing link...And I’m trying real, real hard

To change how I think…

Soul driver

Take me to my house of love

Soul driver

Take me to my center of one

Where there is humbleness And forgiveness

Take me to my house of love.

Soul driver Take me to my house yeah

Lead me back home.

A menace to myself

While others feel complete

It’s an issue of control

While in the back seat.

10. Another Reason

If you go breaking my heart I’m leaving...It’s been broken before and I’m healing…It’s like taking the air that I’m breathing...So don’t go breaking my, breaking my... breaking, breaking yeah

Don’t go breaking my heart, I’m leaving

Don’t go breaking the faith...cause I believed in you.Open up myself for receiving…Perhaps now is the time to be giving you

Chorus

Another reason to love...Another reason to kiss…Another reason to satisfy me…Another reason to try…Another reason for bliss...Another reason to rectify me…

            

It’s not the place or the time to be preachingWhen the student is ready…will I be teaching you?It’s the soul and the heart in the meaning...I guess time then will tell…let’s just see again

I’ve been trying to trust what I’m feeling...It’s a question of when I am me again...Lying here in the dark I’ll be seeing...If it might be the you I’ll be giving

Chorus

Yeah…Yeah...you know your in my heart I’m feelingYeah ...Yeah...you know your in my soul I’m feeding…So don’t go breaking it

Chorus

11. Roses

Hopelessly I sit and ponder

Whether I should stay or wonder off Into the other fields of opportunity

To kiss your lips was such a pleasure

Love for you is hard to measure

Could I find another you

Deep inside of me?

I feel alone in myself every time that I think of you being with somebody else

Roses are red

Violets are blue

You were the one I wanted too

Even though I know I couldn’t have you

Will it be you that I forsake?

Will my heart be the one who breaks your antique looking picture hanging on my bedroom wall?

And, if I care to leave this table

That’s ok 'cause I’m more stable

And, I don’t need you the way I needed you before

But, I must remember when it aches

Not to think it was me and not you that made this mistake.

Roses are red

Violets are blue

You were the one I wanted too

Even though I know I couldn’t have you

If you should care

I will be gone

You were the one I counted on

Even though I know I couldn’t be there.

Tell me that you will remember

Love we shared until December

Who will send me roses to help me get over you?

I feel alone in myself every time that I think of you being with somebody else.

Chorus

11. Say What You Want

I’ve been to hell and back

My hearts been attacked

It’s my retribution

I’m here and still intact

Yeah, it’s quite the fact

Where did I go wrong?

I know the lesson here

Is not to live in fear

In this institution

I find the best of love

Will be coming next

In my life sequel

 

Chorus

Say what you want

Say what you really need

Please no guessing games

And, let GOD take care of the rest

If you answer my prayers

Yes, then I will swear

To make a resolution with myself it will be to listen more and more to my heart ...yeah

No more beating up myself

For things in life that I cant control

Some people they might act mean

But, as (MT) Mother Theresa said

still be kind anyway

 

Chorus

RAP

If the message here is all about love, then let’s sing songs baby...yeah all about love, with no more contemplating or complaining...yeah just entertaining…ascertaining….

I am yes, what I am

If you go examine my evolution

You’ll find no explanation , in my formation

I wrote this song

Without the aggravation, it’s my foundation that plays a part in this

Quick fix, there ain’t no tricks

No more love 'em and leave 'em stay out of those chat rooms

9. Taking Care Of Me

Well, I guess you don’t know who I am

I guess you don’t know who I’ll be

Something inside of me still is discovering

Who is the right one for me

Well, I guess you don’t hear what I say

I feel like we’ve been there before

What kind of dagger would feel without anger?

And, still think there is love underneath

Hopeless devotion

You thought set the motion

While I’m still here - recovering

Well, I guess you don’t know who I am

It’s all been a question of when

What you thought was cowering to me was empowering

Feeling uncomfortably?

Now I can be what I’ll be

100% percent guaranteed

You were so hovering

While I was discovering me; was the one with the need

No more of fixing your emotional bee sting

'Cause now I’m taking care of me

I guess you don’t know who I am

And probably won’t care to se

It’s just some confusion, my favorite illusion

When you think, you understand me

My type B behavior will no longer save you

 

'Cause again, I’m taking care of me!I’m taking care of me!
