DAY ONE


What's got your locks in a twist honey? After awhile you're acting funny Rocket Science I can't figure you out What has caused this love drought? 
Day One I'm back to day one I don't think about it and try to have some fun I'm back to day one 
You call my phone You're all alone You want to work it out I've done this before But I open the door Cause I want to clear the cloudsYou kiss my cheek You whisper to me Mari don't have no doubts Then you raise my steam Say words you don't mean And you walk right out.
CHORUS
Did I waste all my time again ? Are we lovers or are we just friends ? Will our two hearts make amends ? I guess we'll try again .... 
CHORUS
And we'll start at day one We're back to day one I don't think about it I try to have some fun Cause I'm back to day one Day One I'm back to day one I don't think about it try to have some fun x7 Cause I'm back to day one 

MAD LOVE

You make me so mad sometimes

But I love that shit I ain’t gon’ lie

So am I meant for you

To leave or not I don’t wanna choose

Love love love love love love love love

Love love love love love love love love

Love love love love love love love love

Love love love love love love love love

We’re not the perfect couple but we, we make due

And what makes us work is that we keep on pushing through

But I’m so close to closing off my heart

But it would kill me to wake up where we first started

So i’ll keep going

CHORUS

Mad Love

Mad Love

Mad Love

Mad Love, Love Love

Don’t know what will happen

When we walk behind the curtain

Cause the show is finally over

And it’s time to go home now

All we have is each other

Will you love me through my flaws

Can you guide me right from wrong

Will show me the way when my heart is strayed and I am lost

Will you give me

CHORUS

STRANGE

Don’t think you understand

My fate’s not in your hands

You don’t like what you don’t understand

So control is your only friend

You say that I’m strange cause I’m not like you

You’re blind to all the fingers pointing at you

You’re busy telling others what they should do

You’re quick to judge before you walk in my shoes

I thought I’d drown thought I was weak but

You did not change the best in me

It’s to late to say you’re sorry

You burned my flower but I still have my seeds

If who I am to you is strange

I wouldn’t have it any other way

I’d rather be strange in your eyes

Then please you any day

So I’ll be strange

So I’ll be strange

So I’ll be strange

So I’ll be strange

Here you go back again

Talking bout’ me to your friends

I  think your addicted

I see you can’t help it

You put me down to lift yourself

My broken backs your trophy self

Won’t minimize won’t simplify see

I don’t think you realize

I thought I’d drown thought I was weak but

You did not change the best in me

It’s too late to say you’re sorry

You burned my flower but I still have my seeds

If who I am to you is strange

I wouldn’t have it any other way

I’d rather be strange in your eyes

Then please you any day

CHORUS

TROOP BRAND

You say that I’m strange and you talk about me

Do what I want don’t care if you talk about me

Came in this world with nothing don’t need anything

So why would you think that I’m worried you talking bout me

To you I look strange but I got Chanel on me

To you I look strange but I got balenci on me

To you I look strange but I got designer on me

To you I look strange but I but really who are you to me

I do me oh yeah yeah got em watching like yeah yeah

Say they hate me oh yeah yeah then try to copy oh yeah yeah

I flip the switch I’m on yeah yeah I switch the topic up yeah yeah

Don’t understand me oh yeah yeah an now they flockin oh yeah yeah

Yea I like being different

Sauce drip by the trillion

Both hands how I whip it

An you can’t comprehend it

Made something from nothing

and I kept on running

through all of the bluffing

and the repercussions

you keep talking shit because I’m strange

PUSH

Ohhhhhhh 

Ohhhhhhh 

Submerged in water over my head 

But then the sunlight showed me dry land

I lost my passion my faith subdued 

But then the rhythm brought me right back to you 

If you push keep going life starts flowing

There's a knowing in your showing

So don't stop going no just push 

Ohhhhhhh just push 

Keep it flowing like the ocean 

Don't stop going no just push 

Ohhhhhh just push 

You say you can't you fear the change 

We've all been in the same boat

That don't mean we can't go 

Back to the shore 

Embrace whats in store 

You never know what can happen 

On your 3-2-1 action if you push 

CHORUS

Ride these waves like a surfer 

Can't stop moving it's the inertia 

Got me pressing even further 

I never cared what said I never heard em 

Life's gon' come at you hard with different burdens 

Versions curtained curtailed

Before you know it they gone hop on your coattail oh well 

In steady waters this ship sails that's why you gotta push 

CHORUS

VISION

I'm not lazy like you think I am 

I'm determined to see through my vision 

I'm not lazy like you think I am 

I'm determined to see through my vision

TIME

You escape my mind 

As we race to the finish line

There awaits my goal 

But will I reach it I don't know 

I don't know 

I don't know 

I'm not lazy like you think I am 

I'm determined to see through my vision 

If you're the one thing that stands in my way 

I will conquer it's bout' time I seize the day 

You won't get the best of me

No you won't get the best of me 

Won't turn a blind eye to my enemy 

No you won't get the best of me 

Ohhhhhhh

Ohhhhhhh

CHORUS

You won't get the best of me 

No you won't get the best of me 

Won't turn a blind eye to my enemy 

No you won't get the best of me 

CHORUS
