Can't Trust Myself

Written By: Oneika Mays

I’m not sure why I stay
Continuing these same games
I’ve told myself I’m so smart
But why do I let you suck out my heart?

Calling me drunk, saying I’m so pretty
At 2am from yet another city
Is this how you protect me from life’s gritty?

I can’t trust you
When I can’t trust myself
Loving me like you’re somebody else

I can’t trust you
when I can’t trust myself

I play with my love and stare at the wall
Late at night because I hope that you’ll call
You’ve never even come close
So my legs ache for you wrapped around my bedpost

Baby your sweet face takes me places
Why the fuck do you put me through these paces?
Pretend again that you are my best friend
Instead you’re out chasing dragons

Is she that good?
Something misunderstood-

I didn’t want you back this time
It’s easier than getting you off my mind
I’ve got my predictions about my own addictions

So yours are too much for me.

I can’t trust you
When I can’t trust myself
Loving you like I’m somebody else

Baby love me with certainty

Lost My Way

Written By: Oneika Mays

I’ve lost my way to where I am
I’ve lost my way back to you.
Blackness disguised as my friend
Bliss can’t be my enemy…

At the delicious tip of my dream
Lick my lips and taste sweet
At the delicious tip of my dream-
Daylight stitched tight at the seams.

I’m fucked and so are you
Dreaming backwards won’t see me through
Fingers search for us in my mind
I’m third and fourth behind so many lines

Queued up again I pretend
Mistakes become friends

Who’s this stranger in my bed?
Sleeping sideways in my head
You said that we were thick as thieves
I hear you think inside of me…
But if that’s true then why can’t I stop the lies?
Why can’t you see behind my eyes?

I move you move
I leave you leave

I’m so fucked and so are you
Dreaming backwards just won’t do-
At night my hand grips the thought of you
Fingers search for you in my mind
Nosebleed seats to your stage and your lines

Snow comes in the window
And I know to let go
Snow comes in the window
and I know to let go

Who’s this stranger in my bed?
Sleeping sideways in my head
You said that we were thick as thieves I hear you think inside of me…
But if that’s true then why can’t you stop the lies?
Why can’t I see behind your eyes?

You move I move
You leave I leave

I lost my way back to you
And I’m afraid you can’t see through
The haze of the all the lines you drew
To grab my hand and let me see

That dreaming backwards
That dreaming backwards
That dreaming backwards isn’t me….

Pervert Club for 2

Written By: Oneika Mays

I’m sweeter under the sheets
I left uber bitch back in the street
Come baby, please isley up to me
I promise this time I’ll listen to you

Join my pervert club for 2

Understand that the fee was paid
When I let you dominate me-
Wrap my legs behind my neck
Whisper love until I sweat
Then tell what I want to do
Member 1 of Pervert Club for 2.

I’m not the kind of girl who needs lots of guys
I say that when you touch inside my thighs
I’m a girl who needs just you
Unless we call your ex-girlfriend too-

I know she’s hot
And you know it too
Come join my Pervert Club for 2

My love, baby it’s not so twisted
I say I’m strong because I persisted
My intellect is upset-
But my heart is true
President of Pervert Club for 2.

I love you won’t you love me too
And join my pervert club for 2.
