Track Name: Middle Man
Baby
I’m sorry
I’m trying
To not bleed
I can’t forget it all
Cuz you forgot to call

Left me
On a cold night
When my ass was red
From the beating of life
I can’t forget it all
But still must like to fall

I can’t blame it on the middle man
Can’t blame it on the middle man
Cuz it was just you and me
And babe I was so happy

I can’t blame it on the middle man
Can’t blame it on the middle man
It’s you I want to please
Just want to see us happy

Strolling
Through a long night
I begged and plead
but we still fight
I can’t forget it all
You choose to run and I saw

That you were no better than the man that I met
On the first day of fall
When I settled on it
That I would make you mine
I wish to turn back time

I can’t blame it on the middle man
Can’t blame it on the middle man
Cuz it was just you and me
And babe I was so happy

I can’t blame it on the middle man
If I could figure us out, maybe understand
It’s you a tried to please
Just wanted to see us happy
Track Name: For Show
You don’t wanna talk that’s fine
But I gotta figure this out
Pour myself a glass of wine

On the edge of holding on
And letting this go
Can you give me one more night
For show
For show

You met
another
But you
complete me

I was fine
Until I figured it out
I thought you
just needed your space

But there she was
arms open
And you
were running to her

I was fine
until I met you
Is this love
Well I don’t want it

You don’t wanna talk that’s fine
But I gotta figure this out
Pour myself a glass of wine

On the edge of holding on
And letting this go
Can you give me one more night
For show
For show

My hearts
been tainted
And I’m scared
to find out

What comes next
without you
Cuz I’m alone
and it’s hard

We came into this world this way
And we’re going to leave it
the same

Been thinking bout the rest of my days
I’ve forever been changed

You don’t wanna talk that’s fine
You don’t wanna talk that’s fine
Track Name: Handle It
Seasons
never have to change
Because internally I’m always in the rain

You called me out on my shit
And honestly, I can’t handle it
I can’t handle it
I can’t handle it
I can’t handle it

Patience
I see you running dry
And you're leaving in the corner of my eye

I can’t say I didn’t see this clear
It’s been long since you sat over here
sat over here
sat over here
sat over here


Try
try to change
Try to change
The wires in my brain

Try
Try to change
I ain’t got no change
I ain’t got brain

Seasons
Never have to change
I don’t wanna see the life that I’ve arranged
credits
Track Name: Trial Period
Promises
And broken dreams
I flipped you off
But you never looked back at me to see

I took my keys
From your hands
Never paid me back
For all the rides you took in my caravan

Trying it out
Taking it day by day
Being alone
It ain’t so easy

Trying it out
Taking it day by day
You made your choice
Why is it mine to pay

Crossed the street
Back to my room
It’s never felt
This big when I was with you

I can’t help to think of my mom
When she raised us with no one but God and some Badu songs

Trying it out
Taking it day by day
Being alone
It ain’t so easy

Trying it out
Taking it day by day
You made your choice
Why is it mine to pay

Trying
I’m trying to let it play out
But I don’t know what’s up ahead if I leave this now
I know, I know you’re no good for me
Tell me why, tell me why I made us believe

Key change
Chorus


Trying
I'm trying
To let this play out
Don’t know, I don’t know
What comes out your mouth
I know, I know, I know, I know you’re no good for me
So Tell me, tell me, tell me, why I made us believe


Trying it out
Taking it day by day
You made your choice
Why is it mine to pay

Trying
I’m trying to let it play out
But I don’t know what’s up ahead if I leave this now
I know, I know you’re no good for me
Tell me why, tell me why I made us believe
