Owed to Powerline If you're ever lonely Stop You don't have to be Powerline You thrust open leather vest glisten Chest in the desert you both need Beggin And silver pants plus rain you break a Lover wide to see what lyrics May flow Chorus basically a moan stretched out The measure of a messy long-distance Relationship run its course and the Reason I know Max was a black boy and You was the first star he seen Sparkle His Hue VHS says fiction But I recognize them shoulders Descendants of moonwalk glitter gloves Solos I know a bad by how The spotlight don't even add much to the Performance I know jodeci's lost member When I see it Cisco's inspiration for Afro futurist aesthetic I heard it's a Planet out there missing a space partner Heard it's a sunrise somewhere waiting To go down on you the one who taught me If you love someone you better get on Stage and make them feel like the only Person in a packed Auditorium like the Last scoop of war and peach cobbler Another black superhero with another Electric superpower The Jig Is Up
