The Loser

I anted up, laid it down the best I could
The bar set high with mounting anticipation
Watching your hands work in rhythm
Mixing sweet, melodic concoctions
Unknowing that you’d do the same with me

You’d select me off the shelf,
Use the right amount, careful not to spill
Work the elements, chill and bring me to your lips
Enjoying how wonderful I’d feel
Satisfying the long deep thirst

But the happiness short lived, the talk grows
Quieting a buzz-worthy thrill of high altitude
Because with the fun, there is always withdrawal
Moral depraved we may all be truthfully
There are always those who falsely claim decency

You’re the dark heart of man, thrashing heavy
To them you’re the Loser in the gossip
It’s alright with me though, it’s not a reflection
Rather an opinion and we all have those
I do understand the hustle, the want, the game

But the name does suit your style I have to say dear
Revealing what it could be like to finally misplace
Every hurt caused by someone else in our lives, we’ve taken a beating
Never going to forget the consideration you gave me in the night
That seems to be lost everywhere else during the day

Somethin To Think About

I wish I was responsible for writing these lyrics, but sometimes you gotta give credit where it's due. Singlehood has its great freedoms, but passion between two people is a beautiful thing.

Meshell Ndegeocello - Loyalty
they were both young
he believed in himself only
in his oversize dickeys cinched up way high
she lived in her books and fantasies
they both searched for some sort of loyalty
when they made love begged each other just don't betray me
come be with me
soothe my broken heart
show me loyalty
her mother's heart has been shattered
told her daughter to beware
both secrets and dreams you should never share
trust only in change 'cause hearts change
but betrayal always feels the same
but with him she found loyalty
come be with me
soothe my broken heart
show me loyalty
'cause like a child you will never want for love
'cause all that i have i give to you
come and take my hand and share your life with me
'cause you are my soul and i will always love you
come be with me
soothe my broken heart
show me loyalty
i'll be there for you
right there for you
come be with me
soothe my broken heart
show me loyalty
