I don't want to impress, I want to inspire.
From the cradle to the grave, temptations all around. But no matter how good the fix, its gonna take you down.

If I knew what I was doing, I'd be doing it right now. I would be the best damn poet, silver words out of my mouth. My words might not be magic, but they cut straight to the truth. So if you need a lover and a friend, baby, I'm in.
