lyrics

Sunny Babe

Verse 1:
From your hoops to Hulu hips
With two dips of coconut, you strut like “who knew this?”
Your Zulu kiss, your kufi coolness
The screws that I miss are the holes that you fix
In the ways you confess your savoir sex-appeal
I die to my pride when I’m eyeing your “dress
To kill” Any notion of past
The ocean that’s vast is the water I tread for a treasure that lasts
Amidst all that I couldn’t compare
The way that everything you are is more than the average man could bare
Steady grinning, {you} found me in the back ready to listen
Peaking out of the shadows cast heavy on how I’m living
“Hello,” you said in a vocal tone similar to Nina Simone
Your poems sound as sweet as her songs
And the heat rose from your toes peaking
In hopes of a glance at the passion our eyes meeting would know.

Refrain:
So glad I think I found the Truth in You
I’m glad I think I found the Truth in You
{This is love and Your love is the best}

Verse 2:
Exchanged the ten digits
And tamed within the limits
The game that what makes this strange fruit get finished
To the core, push the limits
For some more of what’s endless
Do that once or twice to the reggae in the distance
Suddenly, you can’t quite figure how you got to this point
With a knot in your throat, singing up in this joint
Time to go and though you barely even held her hand
You can still taste her thoughts, touched by her plans
She’s on your mind ‘til that new day arise
She’s on your mind ‘til that new day arise
{She’s on your mind}
You’re on your grind with your “eyes on the prize”
Moving on with the routine of your life,
To your surprise you get that text
And your mind worries a little less
Cause that’s a sign that what you felt wasn’t ridiculous
On your “grown man” with a schoolboy crush
Trying to be true to the soul like Trugoy does.


Bridge:
I’m ready for a romance
I’m ready to do it all the way
I’m hungry, said my grace
Deep in love, that’s what it’s gotta be
If I said I didn’t live for it
Then I would be lying to you

Verse 3:
Now, see, I’d call you a queen to my kingdom
But that would only be magic cause the passion would have tragical meaning
I’d call you a moon to my earth
But then the light from your eyes would soon fade and truly never be yours
I’d call you the stars beyond Mars
But why would I ever let another outshine spiritual guidance inside
I’d call you my heart from the start to the finish
But then part of that story was the ending.
