Lyrics

No Matter What they say

Written By: Kenny Charels and Rayv Vidal

so you had your nintenth breakdown
well they pushed you to the ground
and turned you all around
they dragged you thru the coals
burned your sweet sweet soul
oh the things they’ll never know
i guess you reap what you so

no matter what they say
know matter what you feel inside
no matter what they try to hide
they can’t kick ya down

now girl what are you waitng for,
don’t wanna hear it any more
cause the less you take is more
you’ll travel through the flames
with your sweet sweet shame
the things they’ll never know
i guess you reap what you sow

chorus x2
solo
chorus x2
woah oh oh oh x 2

Rain

Written By: Kenny Charles and Ray Vidal

Rain

Late night evenings
Candles burning
only sounds of you and me

Darkness falling
Our minds are wondering
About everything we cannot see

I Know I've been in love before
But this time it's not the same
You’ve got my heart my mind
my soul And I can't live

without your love
So let it rain.

Rain down,
Rain down on me
I swear it wasn't meant
to end this way
Rain down,
Rain down on me
Cause I just took you
innocence away

Love has spoken
And we're not talking
Only thoughts that are
so far away
My conscious clearing
My heart is racing
And the sweat is dripping
down from me

I Know I've been in love before
But this time it's not the same
You’ve got my heart my
mind my soul
And I can't live without
your love
So let it rain.

Chorus X2

Like every women
All you wanted was I
With every heart break
All you needed Baby

Chorus X2
