Lyrics

If you want

Written By: Ruth Cadet / Tameka Goulbourne

For half a second you caught my eye
And I must admit I was surprised
Not many things in this world move me
But I must admit I was intrigued
And I knew I would break some rules
If I was to get close to you
But by your eyes your smile your that glint
I felt that it could be worth it

So
If you want it
Come and get it
I’m right here
Maybe your sight ain’t clear
Cuz I’m coming on as strong as I can
I really can’t do much more than that
Now it’s up to you to make a choice
to notice

Now
I’m always one for subtlety
I never admit how much I want
Something to go, something to leave, something to be
Exactly how I want it to be
I’m a novice at overt gestures
My pride is a veil to cover
For my intentions
But I’m tryin to tell you not to question

If you want it
Come and get it
I’m right here
Maybe your sight ain’t clear
Cuz I’m coming on strong as I can
Reciprocate something back
Rest assure this will be null and void
If you don’t soon make a choice

Now
What do I have to do
To know you comprehend my moves
Cuz
Mixed signals are what I get back
So I don’t know where I stand
Cuz
In my mind my signals are clear
But rejection is a residual fear
That may cloud translation
Between my thoughts
And what I’m conveying

So I’ll say it
just say it
come on say it

If you want it
Come and get it
I’m right here
And I know you can hear
Me cuz I’m standing in front of you
Bearing my heart and soul to you
Breaking my cardinal rule
So baby whatchu gonna do

Hyperbolic

Written By: Ruth Cadet / Tameka Goulbourne

Got a hyperbolic style in delivery
lift me up to infinity
that don’t exist
I find in the cease and desist
I am nowhere; no substance to carry this

An interest in abandon
but I’m frightful of the recklessness of it

Amidst the static
sense the kinetic
that don’t exist (does it exist)
Gave up unknown and now there’s a cease and desist
It looks to me that it’s reasonless but when I persist
then feels to me there was none to begin with

Breath in breath in . . .
Fill yourself with something you can’t see
but need
so you concede
But you don’t learn so you still yearn
unaware of other ways to suffocate
with innate fires you burn

An interest in abandon
but frightful for the recklessness of it

I wanted to be better
Than what my past proves the future

I wanted to be better
