[outro] 6lack ft. Khalid – Seasons

Miscommunication leads to complication and…
Here we are staring at each other as strangers, sleeping in the same bed
‘Cause it’s like, you were never taught how to use your words like that
You were never taught how to say loving things and caring things
You were just taught how to say what had to be said
So, I want the words that you don’t have and I’m stuck trying to figure out what you feel
Just think about it, like, what might this life be like if we put our pride to the side and let love lead the way

Summer Walker – Shame

 

 

In a perfect world
You’re understanding, I’m not a perfect girl
I would drop my fears at the door
I would only bring myself and nothing more
And you let me be, a woman
And you let me be, a flawed woman
You would yearn to hear all about my past
What I’ve done, what I’ve did and why
Hear all my sick thoughts
And if I needed to, I could cry
And you would catch my tears
You don’t wanna be nobody else’s place, no, aye, no
You don’t wanna be nobody else’s place, to hide from themselves

Shame
And I’m the one to blame

You see right through me
You see through the smile
You see straight through me
You push past the lies, oh
You got it baby
Oh, oh, oh

Summer Walker – Deep

 

Trust me, trust me
I don’t like being alone
Thinking bout ringing your line
I wish you would come home
But I’m just tryna balance my space
I’m just tryna protect my space (Oh)
I don’t really need the pain
But I love to feel the pain
Maybe I could use a break
So we just might have to wait (Oh)

‘Cause we’re way too in love, just to fuck and let go
‘Cause we’re way too involved, just to cut and not call

Way too in deep (Deep)
Way too in deep
Way too in deep (Deep)
Way too in deep (Oh)
Wish I could call, wish I could call and go home
(Oh no no no) We can’t even let it go

route

From north to south, I ride the lines
chasing the horizon
you’d think the trains move fast enough
but this is the only rocket I know

I feel the depths of every street crossed
each neighbourhood telling their story
a longevity reaching far before I have touched these grounds
you can hear the dust from years past whisper in the winds
There is more history that I will never know
and have yet to know

The streetlights flicker,
a sign for me to keep my eyes open
I remember to look up this time –
high rises looking down at me
apartment buildings glaring at me
foliage inviting me
This is all a subtle reminder of how we all make up this city

I continue to coast the lines as the breadth broadens wider than the edges of the Bluffs
eyes wide open, I feel the air around me sigh
a formal welcoming to whoever dares to pass each borderline

I am finally home

Peanut Butter

To my favourite,
a secret ingredient,

A sweet and sticky situation
your name always stuck to the roof of my mouth whenever I thought of you
perhaps that’s why I get tongue tied whenever I’m with you
That is something a simple taste test can fix

Whether or not you have a bite to every chew,
you always come on so smooth that I forget about the crunch
packed punches that I am never ready for but I seem to catch every single one
I block the rolls with a bite of my own
each jab stinging of honey
sweetness soothing each blow,
we both kept fighting for more

We eventually end up sticking, never stuck
but I got you sandwiched
surrounded by walls that you could easily escape
but you held me close
close enough to feel your texture,
a consistency that would continue to spread for as long as we craved

You never tire me,
your effects are what I have an appetite for
and I am full every single time.
The satisfaction you give is more than enough to last me
yet I find myself wanting to open your jar
to dive inside
because I want more.
I want more than just your taste.

Flavours strong enough to puncture my senses
and soft enough to caress me for the rest of the day
I grow curious of your versatility with each dish
something I’ve secretly and selfishly desired
Dining alone never bothered me because this meant I never had to share
I had every component of the experience to myself
each element of your essence to myself
now I just want you all to myself

But are you ready to add honey to your life?
I felt a hint of hesitation after your last bite
they say some cravings run deep
I just hope yours does too

I fear for the day that I forget what peanut butter tastes like
I fear for the day I no longer crave for it,
long for it like it is the only meal I have yet to try
Yet I still try to make do with you and the crumbs you give me
because you are my best kept secret,
my favourite ingredient

Me vs. I

The one I sought after fought her way to the top
I beg she never falls down
or,
I beg her spirit never falls down
I know what the ground feels like but I’ve fallen in ways I could never imagine
these ways only felt in nightmares,
I remember grasping for air
I mean, gasping for air
it was almost like I was born again but for the very first time

I’ve learned how to crawl
to navigate through each tumble
and rolled with each fall
I built these legs so I could stand up again
and walk until I grow tired
I forget that I tire myself too easily, each step heavier than my last
but my heart beats as a reminder to pace myself

It was morning when she awoke and felt her soul stretch
her rays reaching the lengths of the horizons
reaching every peak to elevate the day
reaching every peak to elevate the day
reaching every peak to elevate the day

But what side of the world do you stand on?

Are you sure you are even standing?

Don’t lie to yourself now.

You can never lie in the presence of the one standing in front of that mirror
– she says to herself

It was as if she had to wake up again to realize her metamorphosis
her evolution into tomorrow
into the very next second
slowly filling all that is her essence

But with every day she rises she knows to never mourn the death of her past selves
