Track Name: Be You
Chorus
Nobody can fill your shoes but you you
Nobody can love you like you you
You've got to be you
You've got to see you
You've got to love you

Verse 1
I tried to fit in with the crowd but
I kept standing out having no luck
Oh loving my individuality
Is what just came to me so naturally
Tryna follow when I'm meant to lead
Not knowing what I'm really supposed to be
Greatness will be apart of my story
And it begins by believing in me
You can do it if you want to too
Just start by believing and loving you
We will be special exclusively
Different but all in one harmony

Chorus
Nobody can fill your shoes but you you
Nobody can love you like you you
You've got to be you
You've got to see you
You've got to love you

Verse 2
I know it's easier said than done with
Society always putting you down and
Telling you you're too much of this or that
And it is this or that makes you fabulous

Chorus
Track Name: Brother
Chorus
Brother don't you let him take you
Cause you know that long vacation
you said you're on your kid he knows the truth
Brother don't you let him get you
Cause you know that even though
You and mom don't get along she's hurting too

Verse 1
For the past 14 years I've been waiting
Waiting upon this mans explanation
Why he couldn't fly
Why he couldn't divide the sky
And why he couldn't save me when I cry
Everything I did was to impress him
As if he had made the same investment
Even when he would come
He would mostly take the guys
But brother I still feel you when you cry

Chorus
Brother don't you let him take you
Cause you know that long vacation
you said you're on your kid he knows the truth
Brother don't you let him get you
Cause you know that even though
You and mom don't get along she's hurting too

Verse 2
Now here it is I'm a lay it on the table and I
Know that we have both been through our share
I won't pretend I've walked a day in your shoes
Just wanna hear the good news
Don't wanna see you lose
So I'll do what I got to help you
And when you call I'm just gonna tell you I love you
Keep your head up, Keep your head up
I know you tryna get your hustle on tryna shine
But baby how we miss you when you gone doin time
Cause we gone make it real big one day
Just hold on and have faith
Remember anticipating that drive-by
Only to be transferred to the eyed of your child
We gotta change the cycle it's our turn
And that's in the past let it burn

Chorus
Brother don't you let him take you
Cause you know that long vacation
you said you're on your kid he knows the truth
Brother don't you let him get you
Cause you know that even though
You and mom don't get along she's hurting too
Track Name: Everything I Need
When I wake up in the morning I feel loved
Anyone's ever felt it knows what I'm speaking of
Like your arms give everlasting love
It's so good to know I'm undeserving of
I can take it everywhere i go
It's pure as birth and it is white as snow
It's surrounding me and it shows a glow
So everyone that sees me they should know
