Hit N Run Phase Two Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Baltimore

[Eryn Allen Kane:]
Baltimore

[Prince:]
Nobody got in nobody's way
So I guess you could say it was a good day
At least a little better than the day in Baltimore
Does anybody hear us pray
For Michael Brown or Freddie Gray?
Peace is more than the absence of war
Absence of war

[Prince & Eryn Allen Kane:]
Are we gonna see another bloody day?
We're tired of the cryin' and people dyin'
Let's take all the guns away

[Prince:]
Absence of war, you and me
Maybe we can finally say
Enough is enough, it's time for love
It's time to hear
It's time to hear the guitar play, guitar play
Baltimore, ever more

If there ain't no justice then there ain't no peace
If there ain't no justice then there ain't no peace
If there ain't no justice then there ain't no peace
If there ain't no justice then there ain't no peace

[Prince & Eryn Allen Kane:]
Are we gonna see another bloody day?
We're tired of the cryin' and people dyin'
Let's take all the guns away

If there ain't no justice then there ain't no peace
If there ain't no justice then there ain't no peace
If there ain't no justice then there ain't no peace
If there ain't no justice then there ain't no peace

We have to interrupt the regular scheduled programming
to bring you up to date on a developing situation in Los Angeles

Rocknroll Loveaffair

She believed in fairy tales and princes
He believed the voices coming from his stereo
He believed in rock and roll

She left her past and those lilly white fences
And headed out to hollywood in search of her soul
But she had to pay the toll (yes she did)

They were bound to find each other
He needed proof, she needed a brother
That's when stars collide
When there's space for what you want
And your heart is open wide

Wait a minute

He gave up women for the stripes of the road
And learned the meaning of grace
That's when his cup overflowed
And she said: "hello"

He said "my faith keeps me from willin'
But you know that I'm able
And if there's some room
I'd like to sit at your table"
She said "it's tight, but I think I can fit you in"

This kind of love don't come from a prayer
Ain't talking rebound, born of despair
Yellow sun rising on their bodies in bed
Two people in love, with nothing but the road ahead

Ah yeah, oh hoo
Oh oh oh oh ooh oooooh
Let's go

She believed in fairy tales and princes
He believed in jazz, rhythm and blues
And this thing called soul
He believed in rock and roll
Hear me

She wanted to see her name appear on the big screen
He just wanted to hear her scream his name
Can you scream my name?
Do you know what I mean?

This kind of love don't come from a prayer
Ain't talking rebound, born of despair
Yellow sun rising on their bodies in bed
Two people in love with nothing but the road ahead

Rock, rock, love affair
Rock, rock, love affair
Rock, rock, love affair

2 Y. 2 D.

Every man that meets her wants 2 give her his name
She's 2 hot 4 words & 2 wise 2 tame
She's got knee-high boots & e-o-lectric hair
Born 2 b a rock star eye swear
She's got 9 lives & a couple more 2 spare
Old enough 2 do ya
But 2 young 2 dare

She got a kick drum brain full o' technology
But just enuff old school 2 know where the party b
Talks about the top as if she's always been there
A member of the "chosen few rarified heirs"
Her legs so long she never climbs stairs
She's old enuff 2 do ya
But 2 young 2 dare

2 young 2 young 2 dare [x2]
(yeah)
2 young 2 young 2 dare [x2]

2 fine 4 idol
2 smart 4 the x-factor
internet beauty
everybody wanna hack her.
The world can only wonder right up until
They hear the juicy gossip that's in her will
Till then we can just pretend that she's

Old enuff 2 do ya [x3]
But she's just 2 young 2 dare
2 young 2 dare [x4]

Look At Me

Look at me
Tell me what you see
The back and forth of an earthquake
Goes strong and sturdy tree
I ask myself this question, but it's still a mystery
How I'm gonna keep my balance when I
Look at you

How can you not know
Standing over there like a Nefertiti, or the queen, Dido
Please don't think too ill of me
It's all that I can do
Not to feel myself when I
Look at you

Modesty aside, whoever made you should be praised. Yes!
Ain't no need to hide
Every glass should be raised
Brandy or martini
Kudos overdue
What else is there really when I
Look at you?

Fight it, yes, my soul has tried
When you look at me
All other women just roll their eyes
But even Ray Charles can see you
Stevie Wonder can too
Thoughts well up and wonder
Thinking about me and you
A dozen fantasies you
Call me won and done
When you look at me
Look at you, look at me

Stare

Oh baby

First things first, we'd like you to stare
We used to go on stage in our underwear
We changed up, we got a brand new beat
Now we got the summers poppin' in the street
They all stare, can I help you?
Everybody jam cause this party's goin' ham
Just stare, can I help you?
Ain't nobody stoppin' cause we got this party poppin' now

Second things first, we know you got thirst
But we like it when you're fiening for the funk until it hurts
Jump, air, can you blame me?
Every time you whip it to the beat, it make a brother just stare
Sister freak me
Nobody got a chance
You need to back up, let me show you how to dance
Stare, can I get a kiss?

I pull out a tune
Curvy ma, tell me what you wanna do
Do you wanna
Uh-uh-uh-uh-ahh-ahh
Uh-uh-uh-uh-ahh-ahh
Do you wanna
Uh-uh-uh-uh-ahh-ahh
Sexy dance now
Uh-uh-uh-uh-ahh-ahh
Sexy dance now
Do you wanna
Uh-uh-uh-uh-ahh-ahh
Uh-uh-uh-uh-ahh-ahh
Do you wanna

You don't wanna sneak it
Cause you know we couldn't take it
But we like it when you shake it
Baby careful not to break it
Don't break it now

Do you wanna
Uh-uh-uh-uh-ahh-ahh
Uh-uh-uh-uh-ahh-ahh

Last things last
I need your number fast
I'd rather let the music talk
While you and me walk into the past
Into the past
Into the

Stare
Stare
Stare
Stare
Stare

Xtralovable

Hey, sugar
I know it's been a minute
But I got to, I got to get up
Come on
Let's talk about what you got

I don't think you understand
It makes me
Can I talk a lil' bit, oh
Yeah

Baby, you got something that would make
A many brother mighty proud
I gotta say it loud (I got to say it loud)
You got a dozen little sexy tricks
That a dozen cities in this U.S. won't, won't even allow
Never do you boast like the other chicks
Who think they're fine and loved, said loved the floor
And what I dig the most is that you keep it in your hand
Until I, until I, until I want it

If ever, whenever you need someone to take a shower with
Call me up please
Extra lovable, honey don't you wanna, don't you wanna
Take a bath with me?

Baby, you could turn anybody on, I wait my turn however long
Even if it takes eternity
Time can pass away but every day I make a play
Just hear you say the same about me
Baby, I know my rap is strong
Not as strong as your perfume
That's ok, I like it
Not as much as I would like a chance to see you dancing naked
Oh, I'd really want to see you dance

If ever, whenever you need someone to take a shower with
Call me up please
Extra lovable, honey don't you wanna, don't you wanna
Take a bath with me?

Sugar baby, you're so fine
But see, you had me meet between the lines
Might be kinda popular but if you want, I'm yours
You can ask what we're gonna do
I think you'd better shut the door

You know what I'm talking about, baby
Oh, let me hear you say
Come on
Scandalous

If ever, whenever you need someone to take a shower with
Call me up please
Extra lovable, honey don't you wanna, don't you wanna
Take a bath with me?

Groovy Potential

We've got the groovy potential

Another long night
Or another mystery
Tell me babe, tell me
What's it gonna be?

We've got the groovy potential
Can't you hear the sound?
You better get up, get up, get up
So we can get down

We've got the groovy potential
C'mon baby
Let's keep it down

There's no time for sleeping
Cause the night is so young
It's time for you and me
To have a little fun

Cause you and me we've got the groovy potential
Can't you hear the sound?
It's time to get up, get up, get up
So we can get down

We've got the groovy potential
(Groovy, groovy)
(Groovy potential)
(I like it when you dance for me)

(You've got the groovy potential)
(I can't [?], but I'm going to talk about it)

You're bodies are moving
I know by heart
And it's hard to stop ya
Once the moving starts

We've got the groovy potential
I've learned my lines
And I'm ready to play my part

C'mon, we've got the groovy potential

I was trying so hard now not to
But I got to groovy potential

I can't take another long lonely night
C'mon baby, c'mon baby
Treat me right, treat me right
We've got to groovy potential

(You want to get down?)

When She Comes

When she comes always unexpected
But never rejected surprise
It's always a shock when he undoes the lock
& she's there without a care

When she comes
The house is always a mess
She's cool nevertheless & here's why
She remains as we say a sweet bird of prey
She flies & she's satisfied

When she comes
A lemoncello ballet...
A psychedelic cabaret in his mind
Without further adieu he takes off her shoes
& whatever confines...

When she comes
A blue bed of roses she never closes her eyes
4 his artful technique deserves a peek
Call it sublime cuz it happens...

When she comes
So oh sweet the taste
The tears that roll down her face
Don't cry

Tho sad 1st site they r filled with delight
The 4th of July
When she comes

Screwdriver

Everyday when I wake up
Gotta make up
Another reason to make it last, miss mistake up
If we break up
We smash guitars and shatter glass

But till the day that we do
I'm your driver, and you're my screw

Everywhere that we go now, there's a show now
People pay money for the rock 'n' roll
And the big wow
Before we bow
You can call me C.C. - Crowd Control

If you don't want to, it's cool
I'm your driver

Empty car on a fast train
In the driving rain
I can make you swear that you did some thang
What you don't know
Won't hurt you so
We got a long, long way to go

Might as well enjoy the view
I'm your driver, and you're my screw

You said you were my screw

Sharing stories and cool clothes
And party toes
This is what life is like on the road
Never too high, never too low
That's the only way to go

But right now, without further ado
I'm your driver, and you're my screw

Counter-clockwise, turn you round
All you got to do is listen to the sound
Music never lies, you know its true
I ain't even got to you know who
Time we got plenty of
Forever's worth the wait when it comes to love

I'm your driver, and you're my screw
I'm your driver, and you're my screw
I'm your driver, and you're my screw
I'm your driver, and you're my screw
I'm your driver, and you're my screw

Might as well enjoy the view
I'm your driver, and you're my screw

Black Muse

Black Muse can eye talk to you
What eye got to share is mighty good news
A brand new day is dawning
But you and me know what to do
(so much work to do)

Black Muse we've been so abused
Our mothers were good-looking and our fathers were to
But if they don't stay together
We can't walk no better in these shoes
(Black Muse)

Long ago 2 men held one of us down
Another took a whip and made a terrible sound
Baby watched her father falling down to the ground
That was you and me.

Black Muse can eye share with you
Just came this morning and it's mighty good news
They tipped the hour glass
Now everything is passed
It's true.

They gave the world back to you and me
The faces on the mountains and a dirty sea
A trillion dollar bill and no currency
Still we believe

Black Muse we gonna make it thru
Surly people that created rhythm and blues
Rock and roll and jazz
So you know we're built to last
It's cool.. it's cool.. it's cool..
(Black Muse)

A new day is dawning
Black Muse
A new day is dawning
Black Muse

Now that eye got your attention
Eye think its 'bout time eye mention
The reason why eye wrote this song
Like a UFO sighting
From my heart eye am writing
The next close encounter
Tell me how long
Will it be on land or near the water
Will it produce the sun or the black moon daughter
Or a pillow covered with all our tears
1000 light years away from here
(1000 light years from here)

No yesterday or tomorrow
No better remedy for sorrow
Or why the 5th held forever will make you cry
Eye don't know why

1000 light years from here
(1000 light years from here)

2 unbroken circles joined together make a butterfly
Little darling don't you wanna try? (yeah I wanna try)
There ain't nothing better than looking for me (for me to)
And seeing you (seeing me)
Seeing you in the mirror
1000 light years away from here

Why do we always seem so far away?
When you know that eye really wanna be with you night and day
I'm running out of ways to say how
So eye think I'll just close
For now.

Revelation

Revelation [x2]

It's coming back to me now
You and I were meant to be together (hands down)

Revelation [x2]

It seems like you've always been here,
Now that you are, stay with me forever my dear

Revelation [x2]

If ever (if ever), there was ever
such a thing as time, oh baby
It's useless, so useless to me now
For in your arms is everything, in your arms, everything
An army of haters, one by one
will do what they will to everyone
but the task at hand until I see the sun
is to keep doing you until you cum, to revelation (revelation...)

(Can I play with it now?)

It's all coming back to me now, like it was deep in the ocean
I'll beat me sword into a plow, and share a heavenly potion
with my future queen...
Half east, half west, the truth's somewhere; lest inbetween

Through English glamour, casting a spell
Though Hebrew, Greek and Roman hell
higher 'til we understand, the colour of the Pharoah's hand
(the colour of the Pharoah's hand...)

Big City

Alright you polaroids.. let's go!
(yeah.. yeah.. yeah..)
Mhh we're in the big city
Uh.. come on!

Where ever we are it's a big city
Dirty little hotel room or working on a farm
If everybody is a star - to me - you're the most pretty
I'm in da big city, da big city, da big city
When I'm in your arms

Bright Lights, a sea of faces
Something tells me this is gonna be fun
Tonight's the night
And of all the places
That I'm going to fall in love, it's got to be this one

There'll never be anybody happier than this
Let's make a vow and seal it with a kiss
(uh.. yeah)

Where ever we are it's a big city
Dirty little hotel room or working on a farm
If everybody is a star - to me - you're the most pretty
I'm in da big city, da big city, da big city
When I'm in your arms

It's our time - we're in the line for the big break
Everything is looking up when you're this low to the ground
It's bout time
Everybody's on the take
Let's get a big brush and paint this town

The night is young...
Much younger than we are
Let's kiss the night
Away in a fast car

Where ever we are it's a big city
Dirty little hotel room or working on a farm
If everybody is a star - to me - you're the most pretty
I'm in da big city (and me), da big city, da big city
When I'm in your arms

Everybody's getting money instead of getting saved
Not you and me honey we already gave
Just as long as eye got you don't care come what may...

(Well.. she's in da big city)

Eye just came to tell y'all
From the darkest desperation to the highest bliss
Power to the one's aware of the bigger than this!
Big city uh.. where's my guitar?
What's going on? everything good

Where ever we are it's a big city
Dirty little hotel room or working on a farm
If everybody is a star - to me - you're the most pretty
I'm in da big city, da big city, da big city
When I'm in your arms

The big city so pretty
Oh yeah
Taking back the lane give it to the next man, plane
Foxy and you what you wanna do?
That's it.
