Lyrics

Holdin Back

Written By: Melvin (Drop) Brummitt


(Hook)
You say you want my love and to be everything I dreamed of so tell me
Why you holdin back
Won’t treat you like these fake thugs your desire is what I think of so tell me
Why you holdin back

(Verse 1)
You must have got too used to being mistreated lady
Reluctant to give your must precious gift baby
There’s not many lines you haven’t heard
But what I say is real Boo that’s my word
And understand you can’t take getting hurt again

(Hook)
You say you want my love and to be everything I dreamed of so tell me
Why you holdin back
Won’t treat you like these fake thugs your desire is what I think of so tell me
Why you holdin back

(Verse 2)
I think you’re taken me for some kinda game but I don’t play
When it comes to love I finish what I start
I know they tell you lies about me
They only jealous cause they want to be where your are
With me
And know bodies gonna take your place

(Bridge)
As long as you love me right
I’ll make sure I’ll make some time
I’ll give you all of me
This love is all we need.

(Hook)
You say you want my love and to be everything I dreamed of so tell me
Why you holdin back
Won’t treat you like these fake thugs your desire is what I think of so tell me
Why you holdin back

Flow

Written By: Melvin (Drop) Brummitt

(Verse 1)

It was China rain I smelled in the atmosphere
When I first saw you sittin by the bar sippin on some red wine
Elegant so graceful so I had to build my nerve so I could approach
Pretendin not to notice me but I knew you felt my energy
Like the sunrays of the earth you felt that light in me
So…

(Hook)
Let your mind let go just let it flow (relax your mind let it flow)
Love is the tempo just let it flow
Let your mind let go just let it flow (don’t worry bout a thing just let it flow)
Love is the tempo ohh

(Verse 2)
Now my curiosity is getting the best of me
Conversation how it flowed now it’s got us both in the mood
Now love says she’s feelin me and wouldn’t mind comin home with me
And after a few drinks her body’s close to me even though
Pretendin not to notice me but I knew you felt my energy
Like the sunrays of the earth you felt that light in me
So…

(Hook)
Let your mind let go just let it flow
Love is the tempo just let it flow
Let your mind let go just let it flow (background: don’t worry bout a thing just let it flow)
Love is the tempo ohh (2 xs)

(harmony of OOOOhhhs)

(Hook)
Let your mind let go just let it flow
Love is the tempo just let it flow
Let your mind let go just let it flow (background: don’t worry bout a thing just let it flow)
Love is the tempo ohh

Searchin (Better days)

Written By: Melvin (Drop) Brummitt

(Speaking) It’s time we open up our minds,
It’s time we look inside of ourselves
To find a better way

(Verse 1)
See lately I been thinking bout letting go
See my heart is crying out in this world so cruel
It’s hard to find peace of mind when your third eye blind
It’s time we open up our mind some days life can feel so beautiful
But when it flips the script it seems so unbearable like when the rent is due
And you ain’t got the loot, tell me what are you spose to do

(Hook)
Searchin for some better days, some better ways
To live to love it starts from within you
Searchin for some better days, some better ways
To live to love it starts from within you
Looking forward to some better days

(Verse 2)
Many days we run around worried about what we can’t change
Driven ourselves insane
Pursue your passions and your dreams, create a new reality
And if we do it for love in time we’ll create a time for you and me
And if it don’t work for you and me it could be better for our seeds

(Hook)
Searchin for some better days, some better ways
To live to love it starts from within you
Searchin for some better days, some better ways
To live to love it starts from within you
Looking forward to some better days (2x)
