Track Name: Intro (Cool)
You know
it's
cool..
Track Name: Somebody Smile
Open fire on my mind
haunting thoughts of better times
Who's there with me?
Who can I call?
Give me a hand before I fall

Don't fall asleep
and leave me there
Another blow I couldn't bear
To be alone is all I fear
I need someone
who needs me here

Somebody smile for me
Somebody say a word
Someone get high with me
Somebody bless the earth
Somebody walk with me
Somebody turn me on
Someone take off with me
before the thrill is gone
(no no no)

It seems to me
that truth can make
the hardest soft
the firmest shake
but how could I teach anyone?
Oh how could I reach anyone?
With lessons learned
and hope restored
To lose you now, I can't afford
If you see me
just vibe me down
and let me know
you need me around

Chorus
Track Name: Never Thot
He walks so confidently
apparently knowing that I'm watching
and I'm liking it
He's got an aura so
intangibly alluring
That's enticing to me

You should know it ain't everyday
a queen like me decides to see
if you're worth the time of day
You should know
it ain't a common thing
for me to be caught up in love
It's a brand new feeling

Never thought it'd happen to me
never thought I'd be on a cloud
but just look at me now
I'd even dare to say
I'll never come down
Never thought I'd be that girl
never thought I'd trust a man
enough to give him my world
Bet he doesn't even know..

He gives me everything I need
a magical antidote
His majesty, have me
He knows how I like to be
handled like a love doll
I even want him in my sleep

You should know it ain't everyday
a queen like me decides to see
if you're worth the time of day
You should know
it ain't a common thing
for me to be caught up in love
It's a brand new feeling

Never thought it'd happen to me
never thought I'd be on a cloud
but just look at me now
I'd even dare to say
I'll never come down
Never thought I'd be that girl
never thought I'd trust a man
enough to give him my world
Bet he doesn't even know..

Boy I can't imagine
what's happening in your mind
Tell me that I'm what you want
and I'm your type
I'll go with you
even if it's only a night
Track Name: #1 Spot
I'm just thinkin' bout the weekend
and what's in store
for me and you
It's kinda funny
that we tried to be friends
Now look at
all the things we do

Who would've thought
that when you met me
we would be where we are?
I'm getting caught up reminiscing
Not supposed to look back that far

I just wanna give you loving
like you've never had it
and I wanna be
the only one
And I just wanna be
your safety net, your teacher's pet
Baby, you know just where
I'm coming from

I need to have the #1 spot
I should be getting
all that you got
I need to be the one
that you chase
staring at me on stage
and I need to hear it face to face
I need to be the one you love hot
These other girls should know
they got no shot
Baby, you got me
I ain't going away
I tell you everyday
I'm here for you
I'm here to love you down
Track Name: Erzulie
Evoking the Goddess Love
Studying the highest stuff
Finding my worth
in the things of the Earth
preparing my place above
I belong with the beings
the ones my ancestors could see
Beating the drum
of the land I come from
where it's hailed
to be black as me

You could be like the queen
like the fury of Erzulie
Giving and loving
surrendering nothing
demanding your energy
Listening for what you say
Ah mon Dieu, Papa Bondye
The world will be yours
all full of your cause
If you dance, I will dance that way

Darling, you're spirited
I know you're hearing it
You're not imagining
Let magic win
Open to what is true
The power inside of you
to rise up and start again
Let magic win

Humming for peace of mind
Entranced by the great design
Taking your place
with the bodies in space
You are there
as the starts align
You ride on a higher vibe
Is that how you found your tribe?
Got back to your roots
discovered your truth
and abandoned the tired lie

You could be like the sun
the purveyor of everyone
Indestructible, troubled
a fiery bubble
an ornament proudly hung
Listening for they say
des mystères, Papa Bondye
The world will be yours
all full of your cause
I will dance for you everyday

Darling, you're spirited
I know you're hearing it
You're not imagining
Let magic win
Open to what is true
The power inside of you
to rise up and start again
Let magic win
Track Name: It's Cool (Outro)
You know that it's cool

Maybe I was wrong for
asking too many questions
always wanting to know
how the world works
never just letting go

feeling crippled by
feelings at all..
never being truly emotional
I have often asked myself if
it was worth it all
to lock up my heart in a cage
and call it
home

Haven't we suffered enough?
pulled between the earth
and the air above
seeking from place to place
a homely, familiar
comfort or joy

But it's hard to find
when the blood is
always on your mind
and you take a step back
to rewind
you see that everything
is fine

You know that it's cool
Track Name: Somebody Smile (Single Mix)
Open fire on my mind
haunting thoughts of better times
Who's there with me?
Who can I call?
Give me a hand before I fall

Don't fall asleep
and leave me there
Another blow I couldn't bear
To be alone is all I fear
I need someone
who needs me here

Somebody smile for me
Somebody say a word
Someone get high with me
Somebody bless the earth
Somebody walk with me
Somebody turn me on
Someone take off with me
before the thrill is gone
(no no no)

It seems to me
that truth can make
the hardest soft
the firmest shake
but how could I teach anyone?
Oh how could I reach anyone?
With lessons learned
and hope restored
To lose you now, I can't afford
If you see me
just vibe me down
and let me know
you need me around

Chorus
