ramled99 This album is a masterpiece. My ear for music expanded after i heard this album. And her storytelling and lyrics were sexy, intriguing, informed and as it turns out, timeless. This album is what made me fall in love with SSV as an artist. Favorite track: Come Over.

Mack Diva 04:56
The morning rises on her, and sets beside her feet Cool as ice around her, but fire underneath The world you see before you was birthed inside her womb The mother of creation. ya say ya wonder who She's the Mack, Mack Diva, Diva She's Mack, Mack Diva, Diva She'll nurture you from conception Sustain you with h.er breast She'll do you like a mission Her Sunday morning best Can cure you in an instant of all your sundry ills Or kill you at a distance. if only looks could kill She's the Mack, Mack Diva, Diva She's Mack, Mack Diva, Diva She's your courage and your back Your peacе in the night Who's more invisible and plain outta sight? Isis to your Osiris, Bonniе to your Clyde Who's forever there, cleaning up your blood-stained life She's the Mack, Mack Diva, Diva She's Mack, Mack Diva, Diva She's the Mack, Mack Diva, Diva She's Mack, Mack Diva, Diva

[Chorus] Right or wrong we just go on and on Keep flowing, Chocolate Blood to blood, giving nothin' but love Keep flowing, Chocolate Deep 'n dark 'n brown, my peeps are all so down Boney caramel and gold Props to every color of our Chocolate rainbow So if you're glad to be you give it up Sing it bayeeod, sing it bayeeod And if you always stay true, get 'em up Swing 'em bayeeod, I'm always there for you [Chorus] Right or wrong we just go on and on Keep flowing, Chocolate Blood to blood, giving nothin' but love Keep flowing, Chocolate With such diversity and style Anything we put our minds to we would have it in a while And when a man has a dream and calls My brothers come together proudly And stand a million strong So if you're glad to be you give it up Sing it bayeeod, sing it bayeeod And if you always stay true, get 'em up Swing 'em bayeeod, it's timе to show and prove [Chorus] Right or wrong we just go on and on Keep flowing, Chocolate Blood to blood, giving nothin' but lovе Keep flowing, Chocolate

Rise 04:35
And up a rickety stair she wonders Why if at all she should care And with her pay for the week already gone What can she say but where Her keys get stuck, ain't it just her luck? The walls keep closing in And there her son with innocent eyes She’ll never quit, she knows she's got to rise [Chorus] Rise up, rise up, rise up (she knows she's got to) Rise up, rise up, rise up (c’mon, c'mon, c'mon) Ain't Mr. Washington bad? Howard made man al the top of his class With seven years on the job day in and out you'd really think He'd break that ceiling of glass Oh no, not now, not here Sometime maybe next year Let the clock strike five Now he's really alive He'll do his own thang Finally, maybe he’ll rise [Chorus] Rise up, rise up, rise up (he’ll do his own thang) Rise up, rise up, rise up (finally maybe he'll rise) Rise up, rise up, rise up (you know you can) Rise up, rise up, rise up (and on a personal note) I remember the day I met him Handsome solid as stone Loved the conversation Especially the private part ’Bout how well he could bone Born on the sign of Aries the Ram I knew this brother could slam But silky smooth sweet nothings became nothing but lies 'Cause back at home, boyfriend could not rise!

l'd like to kiss the sky l say that l can fly Don't bring me down If I'd like to cross the ocean wearing just desire and lotion Don't bring me down Don't, don't, don't bring me down Don't, don't, don't bring me down If I only had one wish and I spent it on one kiss with you Would you think that was silly If I'm naked in your presence Could you take me to heaven Would you please go down Don't, don't, don't bring me down Don't, don't, don't bring me down And alter that first night I knew And the next time I thought you felt it too And that other night I lost myself After I gave it to you Please don't say there's someone else Shhh, don't say it, don't say it Shhh don't wanna hear about it Shhh don't say it please don't Shhh let me have you even if I can't have you II I'd planned to love you deeply Spending every moment sweetly Don't bring me down If I vow to you forever Please don't take away my pleasure Don't bring me down Don't, don't, don't bring me down Don't, don't, don't bring me down
6.
Spinning in circles, alone at heart again Dancing with shadows waiting for you to come in Don't know nothing, don't know shit But I know if you were here with me, I'd know it all again There you were, a vision from the suburbs of my mind Just when my light of hope was burning dim You came sent shivers up my spine Knocked me up and ya locked me down (my honey loves me so) Knocked me up and ya locked me down (the baby's startin' to show) Knocked me up and ya locked me down (he wants me for his own, he said he did) Knocked me up and ya locked me down (a family and a home) Where did the time go our baby's turning three Wish you were here more, but I understand you're so busy I know it's hard baby, don't mean to bore ya But if you would love me like you used to L'd understand ya more Here we are, strangers Sharing nothing but a bed sometimes Although my light of hope is burning dim I love ya, and need ya, and still do anything Knocked me up and locked me down (I'm so in love with you) Knocked me up and locked me down (baby number two) Knocked me up and locked me down (there goes your beeper) Knocked me up and locked me down (what do you see in her?) Spinning in circles, alone at heart again Dancing with shadows waiting for you to come in No longer blinded by my love, I see everything But if you would walk through that door right now I'd lose my sight again I lay for you in my sexy lingerie and cry And when the darkness falls across the sky I pray that you would die Knocked me up and locked me down (I haven't seen you for some years) Knocked me up and locked me down (I'm left with babies, bills and tears) Knocked me up and locked me down (I'm feelin' kinda drained) Knocked me up and locked me down (I'll let my sorrows rain) Knocked me up and locked me down (Rain, rain, rain down)

Wet 06:13
Looks like it's gonna be one of those days You know the kind Gray, a little cool, but my favorite part about it is Wet very wet How wet will it get? Let it soak me down Wash the tension out of me Wet, very wet How wet can it get? Let it all flow down Like a river to a sea Moisture on my skin, body tingling Wet kisses everywhere, please don't ever end Electric energy fire inside of me It's how you make me feel so real When you rain all over me I know it may sound strange I can't explain I get a rush whenever it rains It heightens my emotions Rain all day, rainy night It's never too much Wetness outside or inside 'Cause I'm an ocean I love it when it's Wet, very wet How wet can it get? Let it soak me down Wash the tension out of me Wet, very wet How wet can it get? Let it flow down Like a river to a sea Everybody runs 'til the rain is done Like a song that I heard by brother Ayers Everybody loves the sun Oh. I'm kinda different and your rain is heaven sent Pour all over me and give me what I'm missing It may sound strange. I can't explain I get a rush whenever it rains It heightens my emotions Rain all day, rainy night It's never too much Wetness outside and inside 'Cause I'm an ocean I love it when it's Wet, very wet...
12.
Out of the corner of my eye I see you Sexy lurking in a shadow of the room I try to disguise what I'm feeling in vain I'm crazy for ya baby and I don't know what to do I'm lonely in a crowded room 'Cause all I wanna see is you, you got me Lonely in a crowded room 'Cause what l wanna be is with you And so I contemplate my move maybe I'II say something to you to put you in the mood And so I gather all my nerve, baby, but where are you? You're gone You left me Lonely in a crowd, lonely in a crowd Lonely in a crowded room Lonely in a crowd, lonely in a crowd I was so scared of losing you that l lost you Lonely in a crowded room 'Cause all I wanna see is you You got me Lonеly in a crowded room 'Cause all I wanna be is nеxt to you Lonely in a crowd, lonely in a crowd Lonely in a crowded room Lonely in a crowd, lonely in a crowd I was so scared that you walked away I lost the one that could have been my baby
13.
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh Why are some of us prosperous without a care? Why are others of us desperate and in despair? Why are good lives taken while others seem so cruel and cold? Why are babies starving for someone to hold? In a world so demanding, how l hunger for truth But not understanding has not destroyed my faith in you L can't Can't live without you You're the one that l adore Can't live without you I love you sweeter than the day before Why are sisters showing more and thinking less Why are brothers fighting over stupidness Why are creatures hunted only for the skin they're in Why such anger directed at the skin I'm in Who knows the reasons we do what we do But as time gives us seasons, l freely give myself to you I can't live Can't live without you You're the one that l adore Can't live without you I love you sweeter than the day before Can't live without you Everyday l feel your blessedness Can't live without you How can anyone say you don't exist Ooh, ooh, ooh Every breath of air, every thought I'm now aware Exists because you put it there Everyday I see I've come to believe is another chance to be closer to thee Who knows the reasons we do what we do But as time gives us seasons, l freely give myself to you I can't live Can't live without you You're the one that l adore Can't live without you I love you sweeter than the day before Can't live without you Everyday l feel your blessedness Can't live without you How can anyone say you don't exist Ooh, ooh, ooh
