Éric Rico Michel I like Firestarter for its mix of rap and softer elements, however most other tunes are more on the dreamy side and I'm not 100% into that. Favorite track: Firestarter.

Track Name: Diamonds
Take all your diamonds
Take all your sin
Take all your heartbreak
And what you bring

Throw it in the water
To watch you sink
Oh, few words
For such a lovely thing

Okay, okay now
Such a lovely, lovely, lovely child
A broken, broken, broken smile

Yeah, yeah

Such a lovely, lovely, lovely child
A broken, broken, broken-

Yeah, clouds in my bedroom; I haven’t slept since I met you. I haven’t said what I’ve meant to in so long it’s hard to let you believe me now that I mean it- feelings you haven’t seen yet have seen their better days, better place your hands where I can see them. Cause I hurt you and I know this, but it’s not that I don’t trust you, I’ve just seen the damage a vindictive female can adjust to. Just to make everything even- even though I deserve it, I’m just tryna make things better late than never make things perfect. Worth it or not, I’ve been giving it all I got whole-heartedly. Partially, part of me still feels I’m still not worth your honesty. Honestly, all it feels like to someone without your green light reminds me of all the weeknights we spent lying underneath white- clouds in my bedroom; I haven’t slept since I met you and I know you’ve heard this one before- right before I let you go.

They, they don’t know
What it’s like, what it’s like to be alone
Alone, alone, alone
(I don’t want to feel alone no more)

They, they don’t know
What it’s like, what it’s like to be alone
Alone, alone, alone
(I don’t want to feel alone no more)

Clean hands beneath me
Words cut in deep
We’ve taken damage
Touch out of reach

Thrown in the fire
Bound through the heat
Oh, few words
For such a lovely thing

Okay, okay
Such a lovely, lovely, lovely child
A broken, broken, broken smile

They, they don’t know
What it’s like, what it’s like to be alone
Alone, alone, alone
(I don’t want to feel alone no more)

They, they don’t know
What it’s like, what it’s like to be alone
Alone, alone, alone
(I don’t want to feel alone no more)

I couldn’t tell you
I didn’t make through
So I, I told you otherwise

I couldn’t tell you
I didn’t make through
So I, I told you otherwise

I felt the feelings transform, optimus, we were just hitting our prime. Don’t go looking for shit you know you don’t want to find. Two things can’t occupy the same place at the same time- but I love you and I hate you and that’s all that’s on my mind. No, when did it get awry, when will it get alright? Why did you have to say that shit? Wait- where were you at all night? She used to love me, though, singing to Jay-Z in the cut. She used to never smoke, now she say “Let me hit the blunt,” I met you in a 4-door and you left me in a 2-seat. Maybe it’s all my fault and I got in things way too deep. You give less and I want more, look what you’re doing to me. I never meant to call you that, we never were meant to be, huh? They’re always bitches when they’re exes, what a surprise! And you still think you’ll find much better in these other guys? Otherwise, we may as well try to work this out. There’s no sense in loving me later to hurt me now.

They, they don’t know
What it’s like, what it’s like to be alone
Alone, alone, alone

They, they don’t know
What it’s like, what it’s like to be alone
Alone, alone, alone
Track Name: The Mourning After
(Yeah. What you- what you doing on the floor? Get up, let’s go)

Uh, it’s something about what you said. On the night that we had too much & we let so much go by us unsaid. When we stood by the balcony, bent, letting all the street lights get to our heads & you turned to me looking unkempt like "could I spend the rest of the night here instead?" Well, hell yeah! Now it smells like swishers & sex & I could tell you everything you want to hear but I couldn’t begin to tell you for a moment what’s next. I’ve been on this feel for the last 48; she been on this trip since the night before last. She like "what you gave me really got me feeling great!" I just pray to god that she only took half cause I don’t feel a thing. & even if I did I’d never tell her how I feel cause whatever’s in this drink got me feeling too much & it feels like too much of what I’m feeling’s never real. Til she pulled me in close and started breathing down my neck, straddling my waist, little red corvette, popped another one, started stroking me in sets in between and who the hell am I to circumvent? I could feel her heartbeat pumping through her chest. I live to see her pupils dilated when she’s faded. She on top of me topless looking like a mess. Screaming out my name saying "Fuck me til I’m famous, I’m famous, I’m famous” Well, in a minute but…

So, where have the lights gone?
Couple of dark hearts, no
Broken the first rule, yeah
See, I’ve been this way too long
Your bad’s got me craving
These walls got me shaking
Hostage to your words
Slowly caving in

When you’re screaming my name
(Hostage to your words, slowly caving in)

Its gets harder to breathe
When you’re looking at me
And I’m looking at you

Uh, when everything else has gone slow and I feel her body about to climax I bask in watching her atmosphere glow. She runs her fingers up and down her complexion and she bites the bottom of her lips just so. Then she grins as she reaches for the nightstand with her right hand and pulls a bagful of blow out, no doubt about it she about to hit the quota. Head over shoulders; she said "I think I’m about to throw up," stood up and then fell down, I feel like I’m in hell now, coming down, looking at her heaving from the floor up. Tears ran her mascara down her face onto her clothes, on her hands and knees, cold, frightened and exposed. Looking up at me with blood seeping from her nose, still reaping what she’s sewn, but I guess I should’ve known, better. I don’t really want to leave her like this. She’s on her hands and knees looking at me so lifeless. That’s when she turned and said “Well, ain’t that how life is?” One minute you’re at the top, you’re looking at the bottom and the next you’re at the bottom and you’re looking at the top and you feel so, gone.

So, where have the lights gone?
Couple of dark hearts
Broken the first rule, yeah
See, I’ve been this way too long
Your bad’s got me craving
These walls got me shaking
A hostage to your words
Slowly caving in

When you’re screaming my name
(Hostage to your words, slowly caving in)

I know, I know this shit don’t look pretty
Slow dance your death away
I know, I know this shit don’t look pretty
Slow dance your death away, are you with me?
I know, I know this shit don’t look pretty
Slow dance your death away.
I know, I know this shit don’t look pretty
Slow dance your death, so are you with me?

(Hostage to your words, slowly caving in)

So where have the lights gone?
Couple of dark hearts
Broken the first rule, yeah
See, I’ve been this way too long
Your bad’s got me craving
These walls got me shaking
Hostage to your words
Slowly caving in…
Track Name: Windows4Walls
Love gives, love takes
We mend and we break
How hard is heartache?
I just can’t seem to get enough
I just can’t seem to get enough

So who’s to blame?
We lose the same
& ruse this awful game
I just can’t seem to get enough
I just can’t seem to get enough

They say it happens to the best of us but what about the rest of us? I’ve stressed enough for love and right now it seems I can’t get enough- yearn in return and I’m not asking for much, just a heart that I can live in and a hand I could clutch. She never fell in love through touch, romanticized through her eyes. And masked the pain until the rain just drained away her disguise. Feigned her way through goodbyes & became a dame to demise by every man that she began to mesmerize through her lies. Saw rejection as a reflection of lacking affection the lack of connection between herself and passionate exes lasted just seconds, before the world around her depleted, her heart now battered and beaten, confused and defeated. It’s every way she was brought up that 3 years later had caught up; a daughter of a mother who was a vice more than a lover. And fathered by a father much further than she predicted, addicted to heartbreak, well, she’s a heartbreak away…

She’s a heartbreak away
From breaking down
From breaking down
She’s a heartbreak away
She’s a heartbreak away
From breaking down
From breaking down

3 years now & still no heart to show
Do you love me, anymore?
I've been waiting
I've been wishing, still

3 years now & still no heart to show
Do you love me, anymore?
I've been waiting
I've been wishing, still

They say it happens to the best of us
But what about the rest of us?
(I've been waiting, I've wishing)
Track Name: Firestarter
Yeah, I bet you’re with your new dude. I’m sure you never think of me now. I bet you feel like you can breathe now. Like I used to keep you tied up & beat down. Uh, but it wasn’t really like that. Though I’m sure you’re safe pretending like it all was. I could to tell you that it really wasn’t all hate; you could tell me that it really wasn’t all love. Look, I know I’ve acted like an asshole & I’m pretty sure at some point we all do. But I know you see my text message pop up on your iPhone, you could have at least answered when I called you. You didn’t have to say that we still had a chance left. Or keep me waiting up, hanging on my last breath. That’s just cold, girl, I’d never put you through that. We had a history; at least I thought you knew that. I drink to forget you. Or build enough courage until I text you, or build enough nerve until I regret you; in my head I say “I wish I never met you.” Then you say “Well, I wish I never left you.” Then we make out, then I blackout. Then I wake up and I’m still all alone, I grab my phone & I’m yelling ‘When you gonna be home?!’ I suffocate you, I hate you deeply. Next week I love you, I feel so needy. I wonder if you want me or you still need me. That’s when you call me, you want to see me. Feed me affection, say you love me. Kiss me or hug me, touch me, fuck me. Try to give me something or show me closure. My heart still hurts and I’m so hung-over and I feel like shit. And you look like a top 10- super model; by comparison you’re drop dead. And I reek of last night’s worst secret, we fell in love but we still go for the cheek kiss. Now we’re sitting in the middle of a diner and you only order water and I’m trying to remind her of the moments we had prior but she’s blocking them out, she’s a lover and a fighter and she’s knocking me out. Is this hopeless? Or am I running off of false fate & don’t front like the sex wasn’t all great, I always held you in good hands like all-state, I always stayed-up for you when you use to call late, just to wake up and waste away with you all day, keep that in mind as you’re letting me down, dear god, don’t tell me she’s forgetting me now. I hate your friends, I know they tell you we don’t gel, but how you go and fuck another dude in your hotel? Even when you told me you still want us to work out, how you go and fuck another dude in your hotel? I heard of everything, even the things you don’t mention- word is you’ll give it to anyone who gives you attention, so when did you go from being precious to being pretentious, I just want to know, watching you ho is depressing. I guess this was a lesson I was meant to endure, when you told me it was over thought I lost it for sure, but knowing the girl that you were and knowing the girl that you are, I’m kind of glad we’re no more...

I’ve been there, I’ve done that
Nevermind this, I’ll come back
Though I’ve been away, I’m still not the same
And the convo’s that we’ve spoken on the phone
Girl, have me broken
It’s such a shame it’s ended this way
I’ve text you, I’ve called you
I’ve followed, girl, I beg you
As I complain I’ve too made mistakes
And the love weight that I carry
You’ve abandoned, unfairly
Has me to claim that you can never change girl
Such a shame, girl
Where’s the blame, girl?
Where's the blame?
Oh It’s on, oh it’s on,
But you'll never change girl
Such a shame, girl
Where's the blame, girl?
Where's the blame?
oh it’s on, oh it's on, oh it's on you…

My ex called- blue moon. She alone in that one bath/two room. She afraid that she won’t find love, and I know, cause we both walked away from things too soon. So I ignored it, but she called back and I’m curious to know where her thoughts at so I green-light it and I’m reminded why we decided to just fall back. So I hang up. But she’s hung up. On the things that we had that she fucked up. Cause she had me and she knew that but she took advantage and she blew that, yeah. Pun intended. Won’t pretend it didn’t hurt but, not offended. You expect it from dames like these but you got to stay balanced in J’s like these.

You’ll never change girl
Such a shame girl
Where’s the blame, girl
Where’s the blame?
Oh it’s on, oh it’s on
You’ll never change girl

Oh it’s on. Oh, it’s on.
Track Name: Sinners
Get out of my head and on to the tip of my tongue cause you taste too sweet. Get into my bed, and baby tonight, maybe we’ll both lose sleep. You breathe in my ear what I want to hear while you’re sinking beneath two sheets. You’re pressing your body on top of my body, too many lips bit to speak. I want to know- wherever you’re going, you’re brimming off color through holes in your outline. I’ve been waiting for you and this moment forever, forever’s about time. Why don’t you begin with the dress & I’ll cover the rest, such a dangerous mess that we’re both living in, both giving in to the night let’s ignite such a flame with our passion.

Let’s commit
To the fire that’s been lit
Oh, the lust runs through your blood
As the sex drips from your skin

Swollen lips
Hands grasping at our hips
A need for more
She’s at the tip
On her knees begging
“Please, boy, make me a sinner”
Yeah!

Oh, no, make me a sinner
(Girl, I’ll make you a sinner)
Make me a sinner, yeah
(Girl, I’ll make you a sinner)
She’s on her knees begging
“Please, boy, make me a sinner”

Take control if you want to, but if you don’t need to, I’ll do what I have to. The bedroom, the bathroom, wherever you ask to go, take me, I’ll move you, I want to out-do you. Do you think too much, or too soon, or too quick? Do you like it on top? Do you want me to switch? Are these marks on my back? Are these bites on my arms? Did the neighborhood hear you? We’re sounding alarms. And we’re calm but the eye of the storm is the worst. Are you down for two more? Should I finish this first? Cause you scream and you curse and you yell that it hurts but you grin like you like it, I like how you work. It’s been too long, we’re too gone, we’re faded and jaded and naked and fuck it, I love it, it’s lust and it’s just what I needed, it just what I wanted. Ride it like you mean it, tell me how you want it, again.

My words now
Running down like sweat
To the bottom of your neck
Let my voice take control
As the love’s getting thicker, yeah

She said
“Don’t you ever leave my head,”
Well, don’t you ever leave this bed
She’s on her knees begging
“Please, boy, make me a sinner”
Yeah!

Oh, no, make me a sinner
(Girl, I’ll make you a sinner)
Make me a sinner, yeah
(Girl, I’ll make you a sinner)
She’s on her knees begging
“Please, boy, make me a sinner”

She said
“Don’t you ever leave my head,”
Well, don’t you ever leave this bed
She’s on her knees begging
“Please, boy, make me a sinner”

Make me a sinner
Make me a sinner, yeah
Make me a sinner
Make me a sinner, yeah
Track Name: Chance
You’ve got my heart on a string
You beautiful thing
Look what I’ve done for you
I’ve cried for you

You split my heart into two
You’re with someone new
How I tried for you
You were all I knew, darling

And I remember everything that was given
All those memories that we shared, yeah, you took them
But in the end, I’m gonna stand up and be a man
I’m gonna wait this out, yes, I’m gonna wait this out

For my chance
(For my chance)

Yeah, something tonight isn’t right tell me how could this feeling be wrong? The light in your eye isn’t shining as bright as it should, how could this feeling be gone? Along with the moments I’ll never remember cause you’re everything I would love to forget. You told me alone “Baby, hold me forever,” the next day you ready to jet? I wont be mad if you go, go, go, go. Cause one day you love me, the very next moment you don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t. You’re breaking my heart, making it harder to know, know, know, know what I want for myself cause I’m tired of being alone. I’m always alone. I’m always alone

Fumbling words, cluttered minds
Simple thoughts on decline
Soothing words off her lies
One last kiss, with no goodbyes
No goodbyes

And I remember everything that was given
All those memories that we shared, yeah, you took them
But in the end, I’m gonna stand up and be a man
I’m gonna wait this out, I’m gonna wait this out

For my chance
(For my chance)

Yeah, the person you love and the person who loves you are never the same. But nevertheless you begin to confess in convincing yourself that you’re always to blame. It’s always the same- all of the faces fade, all of the names have changed, only the game remains. The pain, well, it stings and it stains, rain won’t wash away all of the hurt. So you run just to end up alone and afraid like before. And you know how this ends, but you’ll always be asking for more. And there’s nothing to do or to say to make up for your past. You just hope it’ll pass. You just hope for your chance.

Fumbling words, cluttered minds
Simple thoughts on decline
Soothing words off her lies
One last kiss, with no goodbyes
No goodbyes.
