Every second, every minute, Man, I swear that she can get it. Say, if you a bad bitch, put your hands up high. Hands up high. Hands up high. Tell them dim the lights down right now. Put me in the mood. I'm talking about dark room, perfume. Go, go!

I recognize your fragrance. Hold up! You ain't never gotta say shit. And I know your taste is a little bit high maintenance. Everybody else basic. You live life on an every day basis. With poetic justice, poetic justice. If I told you that a flower bloomed in a dark room, would you trust it? I mean I write poems in these songs dedicated to you when you're in the mood for empathy. There's blood in my pen. Better yet, where your friends and them? I really want to know you all. I really want to show you off.

Fuck that. Pour up plenty of champagne. Cold nights when you curse this name, you called up your girlfriends and y'all curled in that little bitty Range. I heard that she wanna go and party. She wanna go and party. Nigga, don't approach her with that Atari. Nigga, that ain't good game, homie, sorry. They say conversation rule a nation. I can tell. But I could never right my wrongs unless I write it down for real. P.S.

You can get it. And I know just, know just, know just, know just, know just what you want. Poetic justice. Put in a song. You can get it. And I know just, know just, know just, know just, know just what you want. Poetic justice. Put it in a song.

I really hope you play this 'cause old girl you test my patience with all these seductive photographs and all these one off vacations you've been taking. Clearly a lot for me to take in. It don't make sense. Young East African Girl, you too busy fucking with your other man. I was trying to put you on game. Put you on a plane. Take you and your mama to the motherland. I could do it. Maybe one day when you figure out you're going to need someone. When you figure out it's all right here in the city and you don't run from where we come from.

That sound like poetic justice. Poetic justice. You were so new to this life, but god damn you got adjusted. I mean I write poems in these songs, dedicated to the fun sex, your natural hair and your soft skin, and your big ass in that sundress. Good god! What you doing that walk for? When I see that thing move, I just wish we would fight less and we would talk more. And they say communication save relations, I can tell. But I can never right my wrongs unless I write them down for real. P.S.

You can get it. And I know just, know just, know just, know just, know just what you want. Poetic justice. Put it in a song. You can get it. And I know just, know just, know just, know just, know just what you want. Poetic justice. Put it in a song.

Every time I write these words they become a taboo. Making sure my punctuation curve, every letter is true. Living my life in the margin and that metaphor was proof. I'm talking poetic justice. Poetic justice. If I told you that a flower bloomed in a dark room, would you trust it? I mean you need to hear this. Love is not just a verb. It's you looking in the mirror. Love is not just a verb. It's you looking for it maybe. Call me crazy. We can both be insane. A fatal attraction is common, and what we have common is pain.

I mean you need to hear this. Love is not just a verb, and I can see power steering. Sex drive when you swerve. I want that interference. It's coherent. I can hear it. That's your heartbeat. It either caught me or it called me. Read slow and you'll find gold mines in these lines. Sincerely, yours truly. And right before you go blind. P.S.

You can get it. And I know just, know just, know just, know just, know just what you want. Poetic justice. Put it in a song.
