My music is a fusion of Soul, Hip Hop, and R&B. I sing soprano, but my range can go from low tenor to alto to 1st soprano. I love to harmonize on my tracks and I do all of my own background vocals.

Lyrics

Body Language

Written By: Sabrina Cuie

Verse 1
A little smile is all you need.
To let him know that he may
proceed Or just a look, maybe
a wink Will tell him that
you’re openYou don’t even
have to say a word To let her
know that you’re feeling her
A simple glance gives you the
chance To feel her out and
see where things go But be
careful not to cross the line
Or you may receive the wrong sign Don’t
mistake being polite as an
invitation If you want to get
attention You gotta do something
to edge him on
Look in his eyes, he’ll realize
There is a connection

Chorus
Body language means more
than noise Even stronger than
your own voice If you do the
right thing Ninety-four percent
of the moves you make
Is enough to communicate
All the things you won’t say

Bridge
Ayyyyyyy
You don’t have to say a word
Just express yourself boy
Whoa

Verse 2
If his day is just a little rough
One little gesture will soft
him up A sweet caress across
his chest Will guarantee he’ll
calm down And if she’s just
a little stressed out Nothing
has to come out your mouth
Massage her back, the simple
act Is the way you show you
care _Expression comes in
many forms So if you wanna
get her on Use your body,
mind, and soul To let her
know

Chorus

Faith

Written By: Sabrina Cuie

Intro
Sometimes it can be hard
thought there's lessons to be learned
just do what's in your heart
and soon you'll get your turn.

Verse 1
I don’t always get what I want.
Lawd knows I’ve been there eatin’ ramen for a month.
I’ve been on both sides, I’ve been rich and I’ve been poor.
Finally eatin’ steak and was beggin’ for some more
It doesn’t always happen when it’s ‘sposed to
It doesn’t always come when we expect it
It doesn’t always go as we have planned
It may not be the way we like, but it’s always right on time.

Chorus
You gotta have faith (4x)

Bridge
La la la la la la la (4x)
(just keep trying)
(and soon you will achieve your goals)

Verse 2
I think I got it all figured out
Then a curve ball’s thrown my way I must take another route
I know rent is late, electric bill’s overdue
And you’re tryin’ to do right, but it all falls down on you
It doesn’t always happen when it’s ‘sposed to
It doesn’t always come when we expect it
It doesn’t always go as we have planned
It may not be the way we like, but it’s always right on time.

Chorus (2x)
Ooh sometimes it can be hard
There’s lessons to be learned
Just do what’s in your heart
Hey hey yeah

Bridge
(keep trying)

It's a Shame

Written By: Sabrina Cuie

Why did you refuse
To participate
Why did you allow yourself to deny a part of you
That you helped create

And it’s a shame
That was the last time
The last time you saw your child
With your smile and your nose
And your hairline

And it’s a shame
That was the last time
The last time you saw your child
With your smile and your nose
And your hairline

Chorus
Oooooh
(She was two weeks old, she was two weeks old)

Verse 2
This is nothin’ bout
What’s with you and me
It’s about that you laid down and chose not to be around
Responsibility

And it’s a shame
She does not know you
She doesn’t know that there’s a man
With the features that she has
And she looks like you.

And it’s a shame
She does not know you
She doesn’t know that there’s a man
With the features that she has
And she looks like you.

Chorus
