rhymes revisited-raindrops on roses

see he
knew i was having trouble being we
cuz all i ever knew was
being
me
and i tried to to get the hell out 'fore the other shoe dropped
cuz i wasnt tryna
have my heart stop when he'd inevitably say
i gotta go my way and i had fun but
i gotta go
gotta leave
so i'd beatem to the punch
with that one two punch talkin bout i had a lot of fun and stuff but
i think its best if we let this shit rest
truth was i didnt wanna have to put it thru the test
get my heart broken so i decided it was best if i
just let it slip thru my fingers
could look back and say
well
at least we had that 'yesterday'
and maybe
maybe
i was just afraid that things might
just be
okay

who wants to dance like a crackhead? I can't dance, and I don't even dance like one (I think) You need help.

You just a big a nerd as me watching PBS at nighttime. That's like one of the only times you can catch the "Eyes on the Prize" series. And African American Lives (whenever it does come on).

You trying to get me fired with that hump day pic! That ish is hilarious!
