Shine I

Shine I girl we bring you music to make you feel right
We have to keep it tight now
Gotta keep it movin cause you know I need your love in my life
We have to do it right now
Never met a girl like you
What am I supposed to do
One thing I know that's true (will you love me again?)
This will put you in the mood
We can break a couple rules
Maybe have a drink or two
Really can't force it baby girl so now the choice is on you.

1st Verse – Force
I'm a little bit this an that,
tryin to see where your head is at
Keep on giving reasons
we'll be leaving 'fore your man gets back
Why ya wanna stay with him?
We can get it on with the rest of my friends
And the rest all depends on how interesting
this conversation we in can get.
“Little miss such an such”
thought I didn't notice but I love how you strut
And it must have been luck
cause this party wasn't much till this girl showed up
This is what I told her.
“Excuse me, usually don't do the things that I'm doin
But you in the corner on a level that's moving me.
I know it's rude but I'm foolishly smitten this is my third degree
Hi my name is Force.
Hopefully you done heard of me.
If not I'm a hip hop junkie.
The type in the front when the bass start thumpin
I know it ain't my show but i gotta say somethin.
If you can deal with then baby girl you're comin."


2nd Verse – Force
Now that we're introduced
let's make a move to the back of the room
This interlude that's away from the crew
is a way to renew my relations with you
Here's the truth in the mood for a muse
and i find it amusing that you're who I'm choosin
No illusions I'm done with the ruse
and you remember in school I was way into you
An you dated some dudes who were majorly cruel
And I hated to swoon or be played like a fool
I was takin it cool to the day you were through
And this right here's like deja vu
Who'd a knew that we'd meet twice
And I'm still surprised cause I fantasized
So many times bout you and I
Can't deny this here's a sign

Prechorus - Ras Jahn
So keep on shining right
Our love's in Jah Jah sight
No one can take your place
Not in this house tonight


Bridge – Ian I

I remember the days when u were a question -
will you love me again?

Restless nights of pain and heart depression -
but now i'm gonna love u again

I went through the stress of your confusion -
would u love me again?

Now we're strong baby girl in our love relation -
and now i'm gonna love u again oh yeah


3rd Verse – Force
I know ma, your options are limited
This right here's for our mutual benefit
Been convinced ever since I don't need evidence
Knew you were heaven sent when our eyes first met.
It's a perfect chance we can dip
Got my hands on your hips and I'm losing my grip
We can move to the whip maybe cruise for a bit
Cause who's gonna miss me and you this quick?
Take a trip get a glimpse of the moonlight
Assume cause I'm used to the limelight I'm not quiet
I'm the type you ain't met yet. Best bet
Accept this invitation. hesitation dead that
Back to the lab now after the show.
Hope that ya know that I mastered the flow
Don't be opposed if I ask you to go
The only reason I even approached.
