Safer

This feels way too good to be true
I'm ready to go there with you
I'm fallin' again
It's like déjà vu, ooh

The last time that I met someone like you
Had some good times and we had some bad times too
And it looks like you're gonna be that times two
As bad as I want ya

I know that it's danger
I know I'm safer runnin'
Oh, runnin', oh
Oh, runnin'
I know that it's danger
I know I'm safer runnin'
Oh, runnin', oh
Oh, runnin'
I know that it's danger
I know I'm safer runnin'

Yeah, yeah, knew what it was, but I thought it'd be different
Being with you almost makin' me miss 'em
I, I try to keep an open mind
Deep down, I knew why, why it felt so right 'cause

Last time that I met someone like you
Had some good times and we had some bad times too
And it looks like you gonna be that times two
As bad as I want ya

I know that it's danger
I know I'm safer runnin'
Oh, runnin', oh
Oh, runnin'
I know that it's danger
I know I'm safer runnin'
Oh, runnin', oh
Oh, runnin'
I know that it's danger
I know I'm safer

I'm safer over here (safer)
Safer when you're not near (know I'm safer)
Can't go back, won't go back
I know that it's danger
I know I'm safer
I'm safer over here (safer)
Safer when you're not near (know I'm safer)
Can't go back, won't go back

I know that it's danger
I know I'm safer runnin'
Oh, runnin', oh
Oh, runnin'
I know that it's danger
I know I'm safer runnin'
Oh, runnin', oh
Oh, runnin'
I know that it's danger
I know I'm safer runnin'

Truth or Dare

Hold on
Did you say you're on your way?
Why now?
When you just went MIA
Message received, oh, now you want me back?
I know the procedure
Tryna come to my place, turn around
That's too far away, too far gone

(Ooh-ooh-ooh)
Can't handle what I am now
You're a fan now and I'm not what I was (ooh-ooh-ooh)
So tell me, are you down now? 'Cause I'm up now

So let's play truth or dare
Dare you to forget that you used to treat me just like anyone
Truth or dare? Is it true you care?
Now that you can see the love from everyone

Tell me
Now you care? (Ah) truth or dare?
Are you playing? Truth or dare
Tell me
Now you care? Truth or dare?
Are you playing? Truth or

Would you still want me if I didn't have it all? (All)
You could've had it with me but instead you gave it up (gave it up)
Tell me, when's it gonna get through to you (ooh)
Everybody needs somebody, but I can't feel, ooh
When they ask you questions 'bout me, tell 'em how you
How we could've gone places, but you were too impatient (ah)

(Ooh-ooh-ooh)
Can't handle what I am now
You're a fan now and I'm not what I was (ooh-ooh-ooh)
So tell me, are you down now? 'Cause I'm up now

So let's play truth or dare
Dare you to forget that you used to treat me just like anyone
Truth or dare? Is it true you care?
Now that you can see the love from everyone

Breathe Me

Inhale harder
Wanna feel your heartbeat louder

I know you've been waitin' to exhale
Baby, when you face me, I can tell, right?
Can't hide from me

Don't talk too much, I know what you need
Follow me, no need to follow your mind
Or your heart
Whoa, mouth to mouth when you touchin' me
Open up, baby, I'll fill your lungs
CPR

You don't need no air, you can just
Breathe me, breathe me
One breath ain't enough
Breathe me
Inhale harder
Wanna feel your heartbeat louder
Take you higher
We can go where you want, na-na-na
You don't need no air, just
Breathe me, breathe me

I can fill you inside out
Can you feel me inside now?
Can you even see right now?
I'm a one-way trip, this a two-way thing
I'll make you feel free, do anything for me, ooh

Don't talk too much, I know what you need
Follow me, no need to follow your mind
Or your heart
Whoa, mouth to mouth when you touchin' me
Open up, baby, I'll fill your lungs
CPR

You don't need no air, you can just
Breathe me, breathe me
One breath ain't enough
Breathe me
Inhale harder
Wanna feel your heartbeat louder
Take you higher
We can go where you want, na-na-na
Baby, no, you don't need no air, just
Breathe me

Inhale harder
Wanna feel your heartbeat louder
Take you higher
We can go where you want, na-na-na
Inhale harder
Wanna feel your heartbeat louder
Take you higher
We can go where you want, na-na-na
Inhale harder

Butterflies

You give me butterflies
Got me falling in the deep end of your disguise
Sparred with a hundred lies
So I fear this might be my goodbye, ah (yeah-yeah)

I don't need reparations boy, bye (yeah-yeah)
Countin' blessings by the dozen, ooh, I'm God's child (yeah-yeah)
All it took was dedication to make me fly (yeah-yeah)
Not a minute could be wasted, we on God's time

Plus you the type to leave me confused
In a maze trapped in your rule
Many tried to cleanse me of you
But my heart wants more

You give me butterflies
Got me falling in the deep end of your disguise
Sparred with a hundred lies
So I fear this might be my goodbye, ah (yeah, yeah)

Can he care, can't listen, can't think, hold up (ooh)
When he said it, "Hit it," would you give me love? (Ooh)
Can't care, wouldn't listen, can't even think, hold up (ooh)
Can't see when I'm with you, can't think, hold up (ooh)

You drive to fast (you drive too fast)
Might burn and crash (might burn and crash)
Takin' the backseat (takin' the back)
I'm done with that (I'm done with that)

Plus you the type to leave me confused
In a maze trapped in your rule
Many tried to cleanse me of you
But my heart wants more

You give me butterflies
Got me falling in the deep end of your disguise
Sparred with a hundred lies
So I fear this might be my goodbye, ah (yeah, yeah)

Can he care, can't listen, can't think, hold up (ooh)
When he said it, "Hit it," would you give me love? (Ooh)
Can't care, wouldn't listen, can't even think, hold up (ooh)
Can't see when I'm with you, can't think, hold up (ooh)

Original gyal, you ah no replica (no)
Smooth, clean, no regular degular (no)
Pretty fi real and pretty pon mi cellular (no)

They ain't never had a pretty girl from Joburg
See me now and that's what they prefer
I don't touch no wheel 'cause I gotta chauffeur
First class, how I get 'round the world
Just miss me with the drama
Unless you comin' with the commas (double it up)
Oh, DJ, turn the sound up
'Cause we 'bout to pour the rounds up (tell 'em double it up)

From Jozi to Ibiza
They say it doesn't get sweeter
Feel my body bangin' like speaker
Ooh, sweating out my concealer
Skin tight, no millimeter
And my face card make him feel weaker
But you know that my body is a healer
Ooh, I love to make it

Jump, jump, jump, jump, jump, jump, jump
Boy, you know I love to make it jump, jump, jump (hm)
Tump, tump, tump, tump, back it up, up (Haibo)
You know I love to make it
Jump, jump, jump, jump, jump, jump, jump (hm)
Boy, you know I love to make it jump, jump, jump (hm)
Tump, tump, tump, tump, back it up, up (hm, haibo)
You know I love to make it

Only gotta make a call and I'm here (I'm here)
Gunna wanna know your vibe, oh yeah (oh yeah)
Listen to me, I put some karats in your ear (in your ear)
Make the stick jump, I wanna put it in the rear
Wanna give D, I serve it like a dealer (dealer)
Deep in her throat while I'm digging in her middle (middle)
I'm back in Joburg, it couldn't feel no realer (realer)
A perfect picture like Polaroid (Polaroid, haibo)
She a trophy, no award (no award)
Baby sweet and tender like a sirloin (sirloin)
Tell the chauffeur take her to a Chanel store
Ever play with you, it'd be a world war (tell 'em double it up)

From Jozi to Ibiza
They say it doesn't get sweeter
Feel my body bangin' like speaker
Ooh, sweating out my concealer
Skin tight, no millimeter
And my face card make him feel weaker
But you know that my body is a healer
Ooh, I love to make it

Jump, jump, jump, jump, jump, jump, jump
Boy, you know I love to make it jump, jump, jump
Dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb, pack it, top, top (Haibo)
You know I love to make it

ART

Ain't this what you came to see?
Let me be your muse, I'll inspire you
In ways you won't believe (oh, whoa)
Fifty shades and hues, tailormade for you

Draw me and look at what you started
Go with your hands, can you paint my body? (Body)
Go ahead and brush up on me
Baby, when you own it, sign the dotted (oh, whoa)

I'll be your piece

Study my face (face), frame (frame)
Put me on the wall
Above the stair (stair), case (case)
If you show me off

Your A-R-T

Fresh out the gallery
Can you handle me? Handle me carefully
I'll be yours to keep (I'll be yours)
I'm your center piece, make the canvas speak

When you draw me and look at what you started
Go with your hands, can you paint my body? (Paint my body)
Go ahead and brush up on me
Baby, when you own it, sign the dotted (dotted) (ooh)

On My Body

Now come and hit that cha-cha slide real quick

Give me, gotta give me, gotta give me the room
You know what it means when I give you the look (you know what it means when I give you the look)
Give me, gotta give me, gotta give me the loot

Can't be me that's givin' the look (me)
Ooh, can't put a price on my waistline
Got 'em all on my body (mhm)
Diamonds dancin' on me, Bacardi (mhm)
More time on my wrist, they just watchin'
All night, all night, all night

No, they can't turn, oh
They can't turn me down, down (oh)
Oh, how you like me now, now?

'Cause I'ma keep a whole na-na
Ayy, you wanna be my rosa?
Slide on me like cha-cha

Fine girl go rah-rah
Money comin' in like ra-ta
Slide on me like cha-cha

Aquí hay mucha luz
Vámonos más pa' la corrida, ah

Come give me everythin' that you got
Want me slow, keep me up on my toes

The bedroom's old, let's try a place I know
Vamo' a la cocina, ah-ah
Quiero tu boca siempre en mi cuello
Es mi nuevo collar, yeah
Esta mamacita te quiere ahorita
Come show me what you about

Priorities

My first mistake
Thinkin' that I could be everythin'
Look how spreadin' myself thin became
My priority again

I was in the wrong place with the right energy
High off serotonin and callin' it chemistry
So no more takin' one for the team
These hands don't wanna hold onto things
Holdin' me back from noticin'

There wasn't a line I wouldn't cross
Was always down to get you what you want
Sayin' it out loud makes no sense but at the time it did
Good intent, but I admit

My first mistake
Thinkin' that I could be everythin'
Look how spreadin' myself thin became
My priority again
Lost (lost) my (my) way (way)
Makin' sure it was you (you) that (that) was straight
Oh-oh, spreadin' myself thin became
My priority again
Oh, ooh

(How many) places can I be once?
(How many) people can I be at once?
(How many) people can I please at once?

There wasn't a line I wouldn't cross
Was always down to get you what you want (get you what you want)
Sayin' it out loud makes no sense but at the time it did
Good intent, but I admit

My first mistake
Thinkin' that I could be everythin'
Look how spreadin' myself thin became
My priority again
Lost (lost) my (my) way (way)
Makin' sure it was you (you) that (that) was straight
Oh-oh, spreadin' myself thin became

To Last

Never thought you'd be that way
Holding on to every small mistake
Can't beg for love to stay
Never thought you'd be my first heartbreak
Don't know what more to say
Family askin' where on earth you've been?
Can't beg for love to stay
My first love is now my first heartbreak

You never gave us a chance
It's like you never wanted to last
You never gave us a chance
It's like you never wanted to last
(To last, to last, to last)
(To last, to last, to last)
(To last, to last, to last)
(To last, to last)

Ripped away a part of me
You left me here to bleed
It's the way you say, "Baby, please hold on to me"
Don't want you to be a memory (oh)

You never gave us a chance
It's like you never wanted to last (oh, oh)
You never gave us a chance
It's like you never wanted to last
To last, to last
