My cup of tea my honeychild

inhale your world and feel a smile

clean up your teeth stretch to the sky

you are the sun and it’s no surprise

The sky is blue the air is smooth

the birds sing melodies to prove

that what you told me is the truth

everyday can be beautiful

open my lids,

opposite of Patrick

still a star, magic cave in on my sadness

can’t blame the kid

look at what’s around you

nobody is bound to any kind of cloud

look at what’s surrounds you

family and all,

Mama gives a call i’ma take it

i love that lady

if it weren’t for her i’d be aimless,

she got me shining here stainless

Dad you’re a sunbeam too

Alex and Erica you taught me to fight ‘til i’m glad

since i was in diapers i wanted to be like you

thank you for raising me up

thank you for everything you’ve ever done

you make me proud

and if you are down i hope this song will raise you

to infinity and beyond

My cup of tea my honeychild

inhale your world and feel a smile

clean up your teeth stretch to the sky

you are the sun and it’s no surprise

The sky is blue the air is smooth

the birds sing melodies to prove

that what you told me is the truth

everyday can be beautiful

awoke in the embrace of my golden lady

stoke the flame

i poke and peck her face with my puckered lips

and hug her hips

we’re broke in Boston often talkin’ dreams of the west coast

i follow heart and wherever she leaves to my chest goes

i know this love is what it is all about

like hokey pokey

lowkey she roped me in like wonder woman or jessie

messin’ heavily with my head

took a year no we’re in bed

to all my tears my fears my dread i said you’re dead

i’m here instead

if it rains for a while, i won’t mind

i’m jumping through the puddles when the sun don’t shine

a trickle down my neck brings a tickle to my spine

at the rise of any day there is loveliness to find

if it rains for a while, i won’t mind

i’m jumping through the puddles when the sun don’t shine

a trickle down my neck brings a tickle to my spine

at the rise of any day there is love to find

if it rains for a while, i won’t mind

i’m jumping through the puddles when the sun don’t shine

a trickle down my neck brings a tickle to my spine

at the close of any day there is loveliness to find

if it rains for a while, i won’t mind

i’m jumping through the puddles when the sun don’t shine

a trickle down my neck brings a tickle to my spine

at the close of every day there is love to find

Wake Up!
