Track Name: Gems and Rubies
Everyone gets paid
and they get paid on time
Split the cash four ways
and I spend what's mine
But at the end of the day
I'm wondering
what the hell I do
I've been singing songs to you

Maybe what they need is my tender song
How I long to touch their hearts
Send their hearts along
Or will I sing in anger
Sing another broken tune
Like I'm often prone to do

It's all I knew how
All I ever wanted anyhow
It's all I know how to do

Or will I sing to condemn the present times
Black souls still fighting for their lives
I've learned of it before
Back then I thought we knew
Guess we never really do but

As sure as the evening fell
and the lights went down
I will surely fall back into myself
Gems and rubies out my mouth
I never knew 
all these things I had for you

It's all I knew how
All I ever wanted anyhow
It's all I know how to do
