Single from new album "Beats, Rhymes, & Love"

lyrics

For better or worse, til death do us part, I feel the beat, it’s you that’s in my heart
For better or worse, til death do us part, I feel the beat, ba-bump ba-bump

At times I felt hopeless, like trying to run from destiny
Breathing hard straining my muscles, but it was catching me
Relentlessly pursuing me, because I wasn’t doing me
Blessed with flowing fluency, but treated it with truancy
Now I’m coming new in the game and doing my thing
Sleep easy at night cause I’m pursuing my dreams
All day, the next day I’ma be doing the same
It’s like déjà vu, damn, let’s do it again
Do it for the joy as I maneuver through pain
Do it for the freedom I’m removing my chains
Do it for the love yo I don’t do it for fame
Don’t do it for the dollars man I do it for change
Don’t do it for the fortune, but fortunes do change
I’m paying dues til there ain’t no more dues to be paid
Making moves til there ain’t no more moves to be made
Til the day that I do get paid for using my slang
Dude is insane, that’s what they be usually saying
Here to take over the game from all these losers and lames
Who only get deals because they brag bout moving the ‘caine
Just cause one dude did it and his music got played
Now a million monkey see monkeys doing the same
But I do it differently this ain’t your usual thing
Know that you ain’t dissing me what? Dude I’m a king
And you about to witness what I do to the game
Love it up something serious like a newlywed thing
While it’s a shame what you prostitutes will do to get paid
You only mess around with rap, it’s like you moving in vain
But me, I’m married to this musical thing
It’s like that, exchange last names and wedding rings
This love is for life, deeper than 15 minutes of fame

For better or worse, til death do us part, I feel the beat, it’s you that’s in my heart
For better or worse, til death do us part, I feel the beat, it’s music in my heart (2X)

They say never mix your business with pleasure, however
I envision making cheddar in a way that feel much better
Than what I’m currently doing I’m currently using
Less that 10% of my brain sitting here in this chair,
Trying just to appear like I care
Watching meaningless minutes disappear into years
It don’t fit I can’t force it, a cipher don’t compare to a square
Music circulates through my heart I hold it near and so dear
Life it too beautiful to be trapped inside a cubicle
Rather use my whole soul to do the unusual
The a-typical, the extra-ordinary
Love drums, beats, rhymes, so yes the more the marri-er
I love music got to marry her
To reach her soul I’d break through any barri-er
Whether concocting rhymes with a pen and a page
Or busting off the top, standing on stage
Or letting the drum sing, in heavenly ways
Life feels so much better, when I’m engaged
So music I’m down to commit to doing my thing
Like I dropped to one knee coming to you with a ring

For better or worse, til death do us part, I feel the beat, it’s you that’s in my heart
For better or worse, til death do us part, I feel the beat, it’s music in my heart (2X)

9 to 5 grind got me
Running tired and uninspired damn near running out of steam
Running so low on sleep, damn near running out of dreams
Still this one keeps haunting me
Guess as bad as I want it, it must be wanting me too
Work hard at what I'm wanting to do
So all of my energy I'ma offer to you
Cause, a day without feeling your vibe, would be a nightmare
Wherever I got to go to get it, I will be right there
Like Robert Johnson with his guitar, at the crossroads
Without you to guide me through, I'm just a lost soul
Wandering, what woulda-coulda-shoulda been, wondering
If I'd let the voice of my heart sound like thunder
In-stead of trying to silence it…silence it…silence it…silence it…
Silence it! Now I know what time it is!
Wondering, what woulda been, coulda been, shoulda been (damn)
Thought about the cost, realized I couldn't spend
Another day without you, no more casually dating you
Secretly jealous of the men who spend all day with you
I'll never abandon you, promise to stay with you
Move with you, dance all my worries away with you
I want to live with you, love with you, laugh with you, play with you
You touch my soul and let me speak from it, I even pray with you
When God asked what I wanted in life, I must've prayed for you
Now I'm asking the question, and I pray you say I do music
I love you… want you to say I do… so I can say I do music
I need you… want you to say I do… so I can say I do music
I feel you… want you to say I do… so I can say I do music
I believe you… want you to say I do… so I can say I do music
I breath you… want you to say I do… so I can say I do music
Til death do us part, I feel the beat it’s you that’s in my heart
For better or worse, til death do us part, I feel the beat, it’s music
