WHIRLWIND By Lyrical Jade

Written by Editor

I try hard to speak but it’s getting over my head
Golden heart that liveth to get hurt
I never give you money but i gave you my heart
I never give you expensive shit but i gave you my time
I never give you keys but i gave you my soul
Let’s keep the sidelines cus it’s getting hard to make you sad
Babe it’s raining on us, let’s keep the shades
You said we ain’t gonna make a life cus am broke
I laid my life for love but it turned me down
I wish L-O-V-E could read L-I-V-E so that when you mirror-read its reads E-V-I-L
Am not trynna be a psycho but am thirsty of good love
I gave my heart and soul to a stranger that made it a stepping ladder
Let’s get over all this love it makes us fight instead of aight
Talk to them snitches cus am not here for long
I wanna be a hero in an empty battlefield
You left but i still wanna try
Abeg you to try,reason with me
Am still the same guy who only owns a heart.
