When Future Me Meets Present Me

Dear Me,

I know it’s tough because you’ve given all you’ve had and they’ve decided that it isn’t enough. You’ve taken all that you can and in this moment, you feel like breaking. Stay strong as there is lesson in the heartache and power found within the pain. You are who you are and you deserve the type of love you’ve been brave enough to give.

Love,

You.

T.O.N.Y. – Solange

T.O.N.Y don’t call no more
No not at all no more
Maybe there’s something wrong with his phone
Or maybe it’s morning and the thrill is gone
I’m not sure if I’m still respected
And I’m not in a rush to feel rejected
Not by T.O.N.Y

T.O.N.Y don’t care no more
He doesn’t want me there no more
I just wanna know what I did wrong
Damn this’ll make a real good song
And I don’t have these nights to often
I wish I could take my mind off it
But I really like T.O.N.Y

And he wasn’t just some regular guy
T.O.N.Y’s actually The Other Night oh whY

I could’ve been in love by now
If it wasn’t for T.O.N.Y
Ooh I could’ve been in love by now
If it wasn’t for T.O.N.y ah

Me and T.O.N.Y don’t speak no more
It’s almost been a weak oh no
My the time it goes so fast
But I still refuse to call his ass
I remember the way that I reacted
And today’s even more attractive
But I really miss T.O.N.Y

But then T.O.N.Y called me one day
He said that he just called to say hey
And it wasn’t until he called me back
That I realized I needed more than that
I’m a lot wiser and a little older
Hey baby it was nice to know ya
Goodbye T.O.N.Y

Still he wasn’t just some regular guy
T.O.N.Y’s actually The Other Night oh whY

I could’ve been in love by now
If it wasn’t for T.O.N.Y (Ooh)
I could’ve been in love by now
If it wasn’t for T.O.N.Y

I don’t go with yesterday no more (Ooh)
Now I’m feeling free (I’m feeling free)
Today tomorrow told me (What it say?)
That’s where I should be (That’s where I should be)

So I’m moving on (I’m moving)
Yes I’m moving on (I’m going, oh, can’t wait forever)
So I’m moving on (I’m going)
Yes I’m moving on (I’m leaving, I miss you baby)

Still he wasn’t just some regular guy
T.O.N.Y’s actually the Other Night Yeah
Yeah if it wasn’t for T.O.N.Y
Ooh could’ve been in love by now
If it wasn’t for T.O.N.Y

Try Everything – Shakira

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

I messed up tonight, I lost another fight
I still mess up but I’ll just start again
I keep falling down, I keep on hitting the ground
I always get up now to see what’s next

Birds don’t just fly, they fall down and get up
Nobody learns without getting it wrong

I won’t give up, no I won’t give in
‘Til I reach the end and then I’ll start again
No, I won’t leave, I wanna try everything
I wanna try even though I could fail
I won’t give up, no I won’t give in
‘Til I reach the end and then I’ll start again
No, I won’t leave, I wanna try everything
I wanna try even though I could fail

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Try everything
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Try everything
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Try everything
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Look how far you’ve come, you filled your heart with love
Baby, you’ve done enough, take a deep breath
Don’t beat yourself up, don’t need to run so fast
Sometimes we come last, but we did our best

I won’t give up, no I won’t give in
‘Til I reach the end and then I’ll start again
No, I won’t leave, I wanna try everything
I wanna try even though I could fail
I won’t give up, no I won’t give in
‘Til I reach the end and then I’ll start again
No, I won’t leave, I wanna try everything
I wanna try even though I could fail

I’ll keep on making those new mistakes
I’ll keep on making them every day
Those new mistakes

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Try everything
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Try everything
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Try everything
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Try everything

Gateway Drug – Bebe Rexha

You hit me up at 3 A.M. on a Friday night
Say you ain’t feelin’ right
You need to see my face right now
You ain’t over it, just wanna talk a bit

If you wanna talk, let’s talk about the way you left me
Left me with a text so cold (yeah)
Even though I’d die to see you
I don’t trust myself to meet you
‘Cause we both know

That your kiss is a gateway drug
Once you get one, it’s never enough
Your kiss is a gateway drug
Once you get one, it’s never enough
‘Cause

Kissin’ leads to
Touchin’ leads to
Lovin’ leads to
Fuckin’ leads to
Someone always seems to get hurt (yeah)
Kissin’ leads to
Touchin’ leads to
Lovin’ leads to
Fuckin’ leads to
Everythin’ mean nothin’
Your kiss is a gateway drug

You said that you loved me
If you really loved me, why’d you leave me like that
Why’d you go around and talk shit like that
Behind my back, love don’t do shit like that, ooh

If you wanna talk, let’s talk about the way you left me
Left me with a text so cold (mm)
Even though I’d die to see you
I don’t trust myself to meet you
‘Cause we both know

That your kiss is a gateway drug
Once you get one, it’s never enough
Your kiss is a gateway drug
Once you get one, it’s never enough
‘Cause

Kissin’ leads to
Touchin’ leads to
Lovin’ leads to
Fuckin’ leads to
Someone always seems to get hurt (yeah)
Kissin’ leads to
Touchin’ leads to
Lovin’ leads to

Kids – Wynter Gordon

I don’t know, who you are,
Anymore, you’re a mystery now.
An unfamiliar face.
You gave up, on us all,
You lost hope, you’re just taking up space,

You and your friends have turned to leeches,
Begging for money and giving sad speeches,
You used to be my hero.

When we were just kids, you used to want,
To grow up and be, to be somebody.
But then it got lost, your innocence,
And you don’t remember where it went.

When we were just kids, you loved yourself,
You loved yourself.
When we were just kids, you loved yourself.

We all got hurt, we all cried,
You were not alone, we all had to survive.
I learned to forgive, let go of the pain,
But you’re holding on, holding onto the past.

You give guilt trips like no other,
Left your kids without a mother,
You know, you used to be my hero.

When we were just kids, you loved yourself,
You loved yourself.
When we were just kids, you loved yourself.

Stimela – Wynter Gordon

Like a moth to a flame
Trouble keeps on finding me
I’ve been hiding from my demons
All my prayers keep me breathing

Life is one big hypocrite
Like a knife against the skin
I’m a hostage in this skin
Had to help the weak ones live

So I’m running
I am running

Save me with your powers
Shower me with your wisdom and truth
Save me with your powers
I’ll give you the will of my body
I’ll train you, in the midnight hour
I wanna show you I’m willing
And I’m able
Save me with your powers
Shower me with your wisdom and truth oh

[Chorus:]
Stimela siembala nambalale
Sibele talaku tai…
Stimela siembala nambalale
Sibele talaku tai…

I got blood on my hands
I stood by and I watched you dance with the devil
I set up for bronze and gold
I sold out, I sold my soul
Only one place left to go
So I’m runnin’, I am runnin’

Save me with your powers
Shower me with your wisdom and truth,

Save me with your powers

I’ll give you the will of my body
I’ll train you, in the midnight hour
I wanna show you I’m willing
And I’m able
Save me with your ṗowers
Shower me with your wisdom and truth oh

[Chorus:]
Stimela siembala nambalale
Sibele talaku
Stimela siembala nambalale
Sibele talaku tai…

[Chorus:]
Stimela siembala nambalale
Sibele talaku
Stimela siembala nambalale
Sibele talaku tai
