NEVER THOUGHT I’D BE

I like the color of your eyes

I also like your smile—maybe it’s your smize

I never seen a man like you

Never seen ‘em walk like you do, you do

You know we’re nothing but two peas in a pod

On Mars

Never thought I’d be, be in like with you

But I really do, do like you

Some say you just need passion

Some say it’s all lust

But we’re following a God who gives direction

Says love is a must

I never been with a man like you

Never seen ‘em talk like you do, you do

You know we’re nothing but two peas in a pod

On Mars

Never thought I’d be, be in like with you

But I really do, do like you

He is patient, he is kind

Even when I’m not on his mind

What’s a girl got to do?

Everybody’s talking about compatibility

But we’re learning it’s a choice

To love, and be loved

Love is patient, love is kind

Love is selfless, love’s not blind

Love rejoices in truth, love never gives up

Never loses faith

Never thought I’d be, be in like with you

But I really do, do love you


BIRD’S EYE VIEW

Before we know it

We were flying

Overhead peering down

Over people’s heads

I only saw you

Hey, only you

Bird’s eye view

Where we see the grooves

And I’d rather be here with you

Can’t it just be us two?

No longer ticking

Time stops here

Do all the people see

Us alone up here?

Now I’m wondering when are times like these

Cuz there’s times like these

Bird’s eye view

Where we see the grooves

And I’d rather be here with you

Can’t it just be us two?


MANGOES

Staring at the sea

Wading in shallow dreams

Fearing empty sails and ice bergs

In an ocean full of ideas unheard

Lost as a dove in the desert

Dry as the dirt in my feathers

I’d fly with the wind if I knew how

Step by step make it new now

It came out the blue

With mangoes and irises too

They told me it blooms

But I’ve never seen spring like you do

Long nights of no sleep

Stuck in perpetual day dream

Oh I need rest for a second

Directionless in need of a blessing

It came out the blue

With mangoes and irises too

They told me it blooms

But I’ve never seen spring like you do

With no where to go I was walking a tight rope

Ignoring the Lord and foregoing all my soul

I was lost

But he blessed my tongue with the music in mangoes

It came overdue

In the rainfall I see now it’s true

They told me it blooms

But I’ve never seen spring like I do now
