Lyrics
Grey matters Im just another brick in the wall
you built me up with mental mortar just to watch me fall
crumble and tumble look at the daminos cascade
and your lookin at me sour like a glass of lemonaid
soft and mellow I entered your world as a bed fellow
watch this moment its creation like a yellow marshmellow
its ok to get involved in my imagination
but I guess your feelin trapped like a southern plantation
youve tossed around the word love but I dont know how to react
my feelins intertwined watch them creep up from the back
despite my brain my heart tells you the same
this moment got me wrapped up think im goin insane
you throw your arms around me like a giant puzzle peice
then the world fades around you and I feel no grief
hand in hand we walk together sharin lifes sudleties
forget about the planet right now its just you and me

Chorus
listen up little birdie if you need to fly then fly im nottryin to clip your wings fly high up in the sky
when you look me in the eye with love and then you sigh birdies need to fly then thats when I realized this moment is this moment and the past is now the past forget about the future lets make right now last birdies need to fly and they fly away fast forget about the future lets make right now last


mentally un prepared for the moments not shared
sitting cross legged got the million mile stare
meditate on the past and each second that weve spent
all the time that weve laughed and all the times that weve kissed
i ceased to exsist pure energy Ive become
drift into the vast as my body goes numb
walking dead just a zombie shallow shell of a man
my heart grows cold as I loose the warmth of your hand
words betray people stray relationships decay
like an old pair of jeans with the bottoma all frayed
how do you know its ok to let go
to take the next steps to let this love seed grow
when do you realize the word love is all just lies
I knew it in the moment when you looked into my eyes
time to let go now and say my goodbyes
I hope the wind blows softly as you head into the skies

Benny - this is such strong truth straight
from the heart - I hope it's not achin' and a breakin'. Beautiful arrangement - perfect for the message - and I don't think I've ever heard you wrap so smooth and in the pocket. Nice work brother.

This is such
a great arrangement - kind of hypnotic - very nicely put together. Great lyrics. Letting go is always the hardest part. An excellent post DJ.

Hey peter ! It is and as I mature i find it even harder to let go with no attachments and just let the feelings fade with time without hate and anger . Breaking up always hurts but knowing that the other person is doing good always eases the hurt for me , be well man .

A lyrical wonder!
Man you sure can tie em together, brutha! Like I said before, I'm about as wrapped up in rap as I am in crap! (};-P) But you have a style that I really dig DJ. Your one hell of a writer and composer. Great production my friend. It's nice to be back!

Nice to have ya back !
Hey dude glad to see you decided to stick around man your definitely appreciated around here man ! You probably dig my style cuz im makin real music and not industry pond scum and cow dung ! The main stream have mixed the terms hiphop and rap so tight that you cant tell the difference any more . Im rappin with fresh content while keepin that roots grounded in music feel instead of makin up some persona im actually looking deep into hiphop and what its really about and making that my focus . I make music from my heart with no expectations and no thought of monetary gain so really I make it for myself . As hiphop started out as ....true street music and just because im not a thug doesnt make it any less creditable . I grew up in shitty hoods with fucked up friends but I always kept my head strong and followed no man . Glad you enjoyed man and its nice to have ya back !

very well expressed
Heatfelt lyrics. You touched on a powerfula emotion. Being hurt or betrayed by another can hit pretty hard.

Well made jam.

Another crackin' track
I love listening to your tracks, even though this track has an inward, sad meaning you still have a good sense of humour. It makes your lyrics very interesting. The music is very nice and mellow, and I like all the elements that make up this track. Great beat, lovely piano hook and nice string sound/arrangement.
I feel your pain, the lyrics are very good and full of meaning. Top marks.

As a lyricist
...and a poet you're in a place all your own here, my friend. Your ability to paint pictures and tell stories - powered by deft, minimalist musical washes - just keeps getting better all the time.

"I hope the wind blows softly as you head into the skies"... there's something very poignant about that line. Too often, the end of a relationship serves as the trigger for a musical gunshot of 'f*** you right back' retaliation. Yeah, there's a time for that too, but more often than not it just poisons our own spirits with meaningless hate. Your response here is startlingly and genuinely healing, and steeped in the wisdom of hard-won experience. Sometimes "birdies need to fly" and no matter the hurt to us, that fact doesn't change. Love can make us strong or tear us apart - hell, sometimes it even does both! In the end, it's up to us to decide whether the wound will make us stronger and wiser, or weaker and bitter. That sounds trite, but it's real. Life is one hell of a long road.

Hope your 'down time' doesn't last too long, Benny. Sometimes we need it - kind of a psychic 'reset' period "I can't smile all the time, damnnit!!!" but I'm sending my thoughts to you anyway. Keep the music in your soul.
Dj French Toast said 3691 days ago (October 15th, 2007)
hmmm
you make me think and thats why were =friends ....Im an unusual male as I where my heart on my sleeve and say what i feel with no inhibition even if it means steppin on my own foot . this is an old wound that keeps surfacing for me and i dont know how to shake it ...the relationship ended with her and I spliting because we move and not over relationship problems she wanted to go to the burg and i wanted to go back to phoenix and so it was like one last great night of everything and off she went .....it shattered me and i didnt know how to let go ...i still tried to keep it a relationship but lost my mind when I found out she was dating another guy like a month latter , paced my appt and smoked cigs till 6 am then passed out with a bottle of wine in my mouth and called off the next day . I still love her and its really the the thought of her and her presence that I miss .She was a great human being and Ill never forget her she was there when i needed her and then taught me life lessons ill never forget on how to let go . I dont talk to her any more but find my mind wondering into foggy memories of all emotions ......rik your a cool dude ! Thanx for expressing yourself and thanx for making me think and reflect its the greatest gift any human can give to another !

Hello:-)
Thank you for a nice comment.I have had a word with Len and he said we could collaborate at some point?

I have listened to your songs..I liked them:-))))

I think that would be great to be a part of this particular song.The only things is how we r gonna organise everything and I think I would need you to send me a file and the melody that you would want me to sing.Or I could compose the melody..if you up for that.

Looking forward to talk again.

Take care

Bex.
