Track Name: Trust The King
1.
I got a four door, on four wheels
I got a four door, that got none
I got four windows you could climb through
But my 16’s no fun
I got a falsetto, don’t force whistle
Your false echo want none
I got leathery chords when I belt
Got them, fallin’ all over my runs
I got chomies who got homies
Who be mulitiplying my ones
I got scissors for string misters
Tryna catch me coming undone
I got Xhosa, ‘skies ukpoxha
Bu bucing’ ukut’ I got none
I got grace, I found favor
Now they wish be bengand’ vusanga!

PC:
Ayob’ ayoba/
They didn’t see me coming,
But they’ll watch me go/
Ayob’ ayoba/
Since they asking questions,
Better let 'em know!

HOOK:
Themb’ iNkosi, mna ndithemb’ iNkosi
Got an army wouldn’t try to double cross me
Themb’ iNkosi, mna ndithemb’ iNkosi
Ndidaliwe daliwe daliwe
Ndithi Bawo, enkosi!

2.
Ngu bani lo? Umfan’ lo?
Uncinci kangaka lomfaz’ lo!
Usgijimisela imal’ lo, ngene kanjan’ lomtwan’ lo?
Kwakhal’ abadala, and the newbies/
With the new keys, to the old doors/
But I got mine, I don’t want yours/
I’m a good girl, I don’t mind chores/
Started from bottom , don’t mind floors/
Run with the hardest, don’t mind flaws/
Got uncles with trunkfuls’ of trouble
Who come through like everything’s trouble
Believe me, I’m fought for!
Track Name: Easy Peasy
1.
In the backseat of your Corolla,
We fell asleep, my head on your shoulder/
Easy, peasy
Lemon squeezey
Now on the passenger side of your Beamer,
You let me go, told me I wasn’t a keeper/
Easy, peasy
Lemon squeezey

PC:
I was devastated,
We was relegated to the boot/
And this was predicated,
By laughter floating through the roof/

HOOK:
Easy, peasy
Lemon squeezey/
Put a little honey in the iced tea
Put a little sugar in the iced tea
Easy, peasy
Lemon squeezey/
All the other girls wanna be me//

2.
Need a spoon full of sugar for the medicine
Coz the shoulda coulda wouldas ain’t never win
Hands up for the boys that stay clean
Two time for the girls that been team
And that’s hashtagged for you
Reallife
Got the t-shirt in my handbag
Been there, done that
Been dead and I come back
Been good and I done bad
Been that, done that
I seen mens get done bad
But not that, I’m this here
2 sides get dissed here and this year
Pulling out stops, clean dishes
No water for ya, stay thirsty boy
Think wishes/

3.
In the backseat of your Corolla,
Aint a thing I wouldna done for ya/
Easy, peasy
Lemon squeezey
Now on the passenger side of your Beamer,
You let me know, that I never seen ya/
Easy, peasy
Lemon squeezey
Track Name: Hope
You ask me, how I am doing
And if I wrote this song about you
You ask me, how life is going
Since I live it now without you

And I lie through my skin and say I'm OK
And I lie through my teeth and say I'm alright
And I lie through my skin and say I'm alright
And I lie through my teeth and say I'm OK

Coz I know, I know you know
Exactly how I feel
Coz you feel it too!
And I know, I know
If I ask you how you feel, you’d do the same to me too!

And you lie through your skin and say you're alright
And you lie through your teeth and say you're OK
And you lie through your skin and say you're alright
Yes you lie, you lie, you lie...

Why do we tell all these lies?
My skin and teeth they tell lies...
Track Name: Skin + Teeth
You ask me, how I am doing
And if I wrote this song about you
You ask me, how life is going
Since I live it now without you

And I lie through my skin and say I'm OK
And I lie through my teeth and say I'm alright
And I lie through my skin and say I'm alright
And I lie through my teeth and say I'm OK

Coz I know, I know you know
Exactly how I feel
Coz you feel it too!
And I know, I know
If I ask you how you feel, you’d do the same to me too!

And you lie through your skin and say you're alright
And you lie through your teeth and say you're OK
And you lie through your skin and say you're alright
Yes you lie, you lie, you lie...

Why do we tell all these lies?
My skin and teeth they tell lies...
Track Name: Almost
You like to tell a story
I like to tell a story
You say that I am boring
Holes in your soul
I’m boring

1.
But why?
Why does a nice girl like me
Want a guy, like you?
I pack my bags, I fly
To see you, look you in the eye
Wonder why, do I do the silly things I do
Just so we can be cool?
We started out as friends, could not pretend
You liked the things I liked and so
Even your ends are mine as well
I’m calling mens to let ‘em know
Forget about the girl, she’s gone - don’t make amends

//I almost lost my mind for you
Almost gave up seeing to be blind for you//

2.
Why do I like to dance close to the fire?
Smoke goes higher, didn’t learn prior
Better come correct
And if you need to call me
Please don’t call collect
Coz now you owe me
Why? Do I fall in love ga-ga-ga guys
Who just wanna tell me la-la-la lies
Did you believe that you weren’t some irrelevant specimen?
That I needed to take some potent medicine
My angel, I thought you were heaven-sent
I see now that you were hell bent
and it was smoke all along
That I thought was heavens’ scent
Liar, liar you was on fire

//What’s a girl like me, doing with a boy like you?//
Track Name: Be There
Anytime you need somebody, anybody, call me
I’ll be there for you
I’ll be there for you

1.
Do you remember that time
Do you remember that time
I was feeling so low
I was so broke
Needed some dough,
Do you remember that time,
When we lost everything, basically had nowhere to go?
Do you remember?

You picked me up, took me out
told me to put a smile on my face
Everything would be OK
You reminded me that faith
In the One up above would keep driving me

It’s friends like you that make the world go round

2.
No ticket price too high
No distance I won’t fly
No thing that I won’t try
If you need me by your side
We ride and we die
Friends, that’s no lie
No thing that I won’t try
If you need me by your side

One day it’s gonna be my turn
To give you back what you’ve given me
For free
I love it, it makes me smile :)
