so i'm lying in the grass with the right bambina packing a basket looking like a cantina keeping it class with a glass of sangria and forgetting all these worries, that's an idea chilling on a blanket in the park waiting for the night to get dark you know, sometimes i have dreams of thai beaches, sipping a beer but i know we got it pretty good right here anywhere you are, just look out at that galaxy that's the canopy we've got and can it be in the vastness of these stars' ashes i found a true love that lasts it's like a fantasy so honey, when the skies aren't sunny when i have no money when i act so funny when this youth drops from me tell me the truth do you think you'll still love me ooh, ooh, tell me this won't have to end don't need to rap about cats and dogs like every other rapper with some tracks on blogs old school, baby, wax on cogs old school slamming discs like i'm back on pogs stacked high like the prayers we send up like jenga blocks pulling them out and then what money spent up at the cafes and bars where we spend our time just laughing so hard spent at the end of these halfway discarded nights pretending i'm gonna spend my last days in charge well pardon me for trying optimism, i like to gaze at stars in a moment we could see light in a moment we could rewrite when i'm alone with you these nights just fly by knowing this could just be right ooh, ooh, tell me this won't have to end now, we've been coming down this road, weaving don't i get your heart beating don't i get your heart, don't i get your heart now, we've been wandering the stars, dreaming don't i get your heart beating don't i get your heart, don't i get your heart in a moment we could see light in a moment we could rewrite when i'm alone with you these nights just fly by knowing this could just be right ooh, ooh, tell me this won't have to end

i got a friend in every city and a second one if i can get a hit of whiskey b-52s up at 5280 mile high not the only thing to elevate me and that’s when the trouble begins no matter what i’m doing ruin a handle of mother’s ruin or the crown and i’m sleeping in my button down waking up to do it all again in another town creeping on another round but when i’ve had that drink i can’t help but think pushing the frontier might have put myself on the brink and if i had a crystal ball i’d pull up the whole fam, blow a kiss to y'all i’m in a strange land, no plan trying to find bars so that i don’t miss the call when i’m gone yes, i did it again dropped in for a visit and then had suits try to pin me down but i can’t listen to them, no i’ve been away for a minute could never change, now i’m in it but every day i’m still thinking of you i keep dreaming of what’s gone, long gone i miss my friends but i don’t miss my ends miss those talks but i don’t miss my block feeling extraordinary, ‘cause when i'm cruising the canaries i never really dream of being home in ontari - oh! taking in the light off a wave feeling like i might wash away and that that would be okay no currents pull me the wrong way it seems i always end up in a spanish enclave a cuban bistro, dominican holiday, kiwi beach zone, australian reef, cambodian islet, morrocan art show the farther that i get the less i need cargo in my heart i always carry your heart, though but one day i’ll be back on the 49th parallel ride this world like a carousel finding new hideouts and stories that i care to tell ’til another time, farewell i’m gone yes, i did it again dropped in for a visit and then had suits try to pin me down but i can’t listen to them, no i’ve been away for a minute could never change, now i’m in it but every day i’m still thinking of you i keep dreaming of what’s gone, long gone i keep dreaming of what’s gone, gone i keep dreaming

i could never tire of the azure sky or of the coral sands yeah yeah watching all the waves come through watching all the ways you move sipping my tequila lime in this sun with no one around but you yeah yeah listening to the ocean spray nostalgia ultra on my brain yeah if i don't make it tomorrow i've had a good run, you all know if i don't make it tomorrow i’ve been pushing for a while and it’s good leaving those clouds behind yeah yeah trying to just forget what they’re on trying to make the moves i want now they start to see the way i put down stay on top of my game yeah yeah lay it down before i lay down say the things i need to say now yeah if i don't make it tomorrow i've had a good run, you all know if i don't make it tomorrow i think a lot about the way it ends the kind of things no one ever wants me to say again but the line's in my mind so when i peace i'll know i had the best times with the greatest friends that's why i own it, live in the moment trying to make the most of it, notice the unnoticed and any stacks that i stack, well that's a bonus i've seen too many dull folks working the wrong motives so while you're napping in the afternoon i'm in the classroom raising up my hand, yes i'm that dude i'm in the cancun sands, just passing through 'til i'm in the studio booth tracking these raps too and if you're waiting for anybody to ask you where your passion falls and what you have to do then consider this your call to be all you can be stand up tall, hustle, no plan b if i don't make it tomorrow i've had a good run, you all know if i don't make it tomorrow

about

Several years in the making, Stars is a feel-good pop/rap album with electronic and funk influences sprinkled in. Some of the songs were written during a year spent abroad, and the lyrics speak to that experience - no phone plan, meeting new people, grappling with what "home" means, and being ready for anything to happen. But the message that permeates the whole album is empowerment: The rest of your life is open ahead of you, so reach for the stars.
