Dangerous Line

Written By: Richey Lam

Well excuse me baby let me holler at you

Can I have some attention please?

Do you have good intentions or do I have to mention

Can you help and break it down for me

All the imparticulars are getting so peculiar

Maybe not for you but for me

Up and down and round and round and

Creeping alone quietly.

Looking for the answer

Go a little a faster for me.

B,B,B,B,Baby don't you know that I can't take it anymore

Cause you making me weak at the toes.

Now do you really really feel it, taste, touch it,

Crave it down deep into your soul

And if it do than it does then I did and it was

Do it again for you

Just to hear you say moaning my name

Singing ah, ah, ah, ah for me

I want to get serious a little delirious
From the dangerous line between us
I want to discover touching each other
Just breaking me down

Now looky, looky here I here I don't care what the say

Cause you like the way I flip my tongue

Cause the good lord gave me the gift to sing

As he spoke through me as I sung

When I spit on the mic up and down left and right

I'll give it to you all night…Long

Stronger than a loco motive faster than a speeding bullet

I ain't even trying to impress

Baby you call the shotgun and I'll be the train

The oriental express

Just to hear you say moaning my name

Singing aha, ah, ah, ah for me


Bridge: But turn it around and see what you found isn't it Love ly

Just turn it around to see what you'd find

Uncovering the mystery…yeah

Chorus out


Written By: Richey Lam

Lately I've been craving your touch

Quietly burning I need you so much

Flashes of you linger in my head

And my bones still shake

My heart still break

From the words you said.

Last year was the last time I saw you face

I remember how your lips use to taste

And the looks that you gave

I still smell your side of the bed

Just to wake up by myself

And like a ghost you haunt these halls

And the memories in my head

Why can't I let you go?
Why can't I see?
You don't Love me anymore
It's not easy
Now and then I'll try again
Tomorrow maybe tomorrow
I'll let you go

Suddenly everything reminds me of you

Constantly searching as I hide from the truth

I still call your name out loud

In the middle of the night

And like a ghost you haunt my dreams

And the demons in my mind


Cause it's another day

Don't know what else I could do

To help me get over you

I'm still not over you

Coffee Machine

Written By: Richey Lam

Here I go again

Monday morning 9am

Wanna go back to sleep

And dream about the way

That I use to be

Stuck again here I am

Talking to myself in this traffic jam

To bad I'm already late

Cause somebody took my parking space

Now get in line

And do your time

Any minute now I'm gonna lose my mind

Cause I hate this tie

I hate this shirt

I hate this place that I work

I hate this coffee machine

Back to reality
Back to my everyday life
Back to the way it was
When nothing went right
Back to the slavery of all my precious things
Took away my innocence
And then left me with no feelings

Look what I've become

The epitome of the enemy

I thought was dumb

There was a time I knew I was something special …yeah

Now all I see is what I use to be

Pass before my eyes through this monitor screen

I think I'll go crazy soon

Under this florescent gloom

I hate this coffee machine

Chorus 2x out

Kiss Me

Written By: Richey Lam

Standing here beside me

Feel your heart beat

Playing with my hair

I see your breath on me

As time still stops

My heart is rocked

Cradled in my arms

But still so far

Beginnings of a love so true…hold my hand

The stars are aligned the moon is too

You look into my eyes

I look down at my feet

My eyes are closed shut

But then I look up

Kiss me under the moon
Sing me the tune
Where I dance in your arms
Hold me over the bridge
So I can cross to the other side
Let my soul be free
Kiss me

So much to say

But I'm all out of words

The silence I hear

Is something unheard

I believe it's the howl for the distant moon

The dawn is coming to soon

My blood is raise my hearts on fire

The world stands still down to the wire

You look into my soul fill up the whole

Empty inside with nothing to hide


Bridge: so much to win with nothing to lose

Friendship or love which one will choose


Kiss me why in the world can't you see

I'm down on my knees

Kiss me……

Saturday Cartoons

Written By: Richey Lam

Oh what a great day to be alive

What a beautiful morning at

6am before the sunrise

Mom and dad are sleeping in

So I'll tip toe down to the family den

To see my friends

The pillow is my shield

The spoon is my sword

I got my cape

I got my G.I. Joe's

I'm gonna be I'm gonna be a super hero

I can't wait

From 6 till noon

It's just me

Just me and my Saturday cartoons

With all of my strength
I am almighty
This is the hour
By the power of Greyskull
I shall command thee
I have the power
I'll do anything
Don't go anywhere
Just stay tuned
For me and my Saturday cartoons


I am the king of the cushion fortress

No girls allowed but the fairest princess

I stand for honor

I fight for freedom

The enemy is my brother

And his legion of doom

I got my belt

I got my lasso

I'm gonna be I'm gonna be Liono

I can't wait

From 6 till noon

It's just me

Just me and my Saturday cartoons


Repeat chorus and out

College Years

Written By: Richey Lam

Wake up Wake up quarter part eight

First day of school and I'm already late

Need to get ahead it's my freshman year

Things are gonna change I think I'm gonna like it here

No one knows me I'm starting from scratch

My geeky days are over they're all in my past

The future looks bright, but it's still unclear

The next thing I know it's my sophomore year

It's like yesterday to me

I was five foot nothing

With braces on my teeth

I'm a college man now first time on my own
Girls are gonna want me now just gonna take it slow
Might be a frat boy
Maybe join the chess club
Try intramurals cause football's what I love
Lock up all my fears
Live it up while I'm hear
This is gonna be my best College Years

Now I'm a sophomore cocky as hell

If you took a look at me you probably couldn't tell

Junior year I was looking for fun

All I gots to say I turn 21

Cause girls like older men at least that's what I heard

Years went by it feels like blur

It's like yesterday to me

I was riding my big wheel up and down my street


Bridge: Do you remember when were young

We were so afraid

But it was so much fun

Who would of thought?

I'd fall in love

She was the one

My Very first crush

½ verse

4 years later here I am wishin' I could do it all over again

Feel so old but still young at heart

Looking back I've come so far

It's like yesterday to me

I was a freshman boy with so many dreams


Wake up wake up quarter past 8 first day of school and I'm already late………
