  • I was unafraid, I was a boy, I was a tender age
    Melic in the naked, knew a lake and drew the lofts for page
    Hurdle all the waitings up, I know it wasn't wedded love, why?
    Four long minutes end and it was over, it'd all be back
    And the frost took up the eyes

    Pressed against the pane, could see the veins and there was poison out
    Resting in a raze, the inner claims I hadn't breadth to shake
    Searching for an inner clout, may not take another bout, why?
    Honey in the hale could fill the pales of loving less with vain
    Hon', it wasn't yet the spring

    Aiming and it sunk and we were drunk and we had fleshed it out
    Nose up in the globes, you never know if you are passing out
    No, it wasn't maiden-up, the falling or the faded luck, why? (Ooh, ooh)
    Hung up in the ivory, both were climbing for a finer cause
    Love can hardly leave the room
    With your heart Writer/s: Justin Deyarmond Edison Vernon
