You Ain't Runnin

With My Rhythm

Got me a rhyme with a reason roll it roll it 
Story bout the heart, how somebody stole it 
Maybe it was me; I had a lot to learn about love an survival 
Took a journey through the bible 
Came across a verse about Adam an eve an how she

tempted him huh! would you believe? 
Yeah, sweetness is a weakness that’s where I went wrong 
But I’m back coming up stronger an this is my song. 
Look at ya self in the mirror, see it, free it 
Don’t like what ya looking at ya don’t have to be it, 
Anger is a waste; it’s like a disease, that man will have ya feeling 
Once he takes ya to the ceiling. 
Turns around an walks an leaves ya with the fall 
Ya won’t see his face again, he won’t bother to call 
Ya loving is the kind that I don’t wanna play 
I’m back coming up stronger an doing it my way

You ain't running with my rhythm, ain't messing with my rhyme 
Ain't banging on my bass drum, no not for a second time 
Ain't running with my rhythm, ain't strumming on my strings 
You ain't messing with my music coz it’s my thing 
Yeah my thing. 

---x--- 
Focus on a beat take it out in to the street 
Share it with ya friends yeah, dancing in the street heat, 
Good, regain ya self esteem, you ain't taking me down again 
Ya know what I mean? 
Coz I’m strong, I learnt how to get along 
The father lent his shoulder for me to rest my head upon 
Safe in the sound I lost but then I found 
Back to the roots yeah, back to the home ground 
Out of the muddle that started with a cuddle 
Mentally bashed and bruised you end up in a huddle 
But now peace, yeah, I got inner peace 
I know where I’m at an it feels like bliss 
Well you can come back but you can’t take that 
I’m here coming up singing an you can’t touch this. 

---x--- 
You ain't running with my rhythm ain't messing with my rhyme 
Ain't banging on my bass drum no not for a second time 
Ain't running with my rhythm ain't strumming on my strings 
Ain't messing with my music coz it’s my thing 
Yeah my thing. 

---x--- 

If music be your saviour 
If god give you the beat 
Don’t let the energy grind you down 
Use it to stay up on your feet 

---x--- 
You ain't running with my rhythm ain't messing with my rhyme 
Ain't banging on my bass drum no not for a second time 
Ain't running with my rhythm ain't strumming on my strings 
You ain't messing with my music 
Coz it’s my thing 
You ain't running with my rhythm ain't messing with my rhyme 
Ain't banging on my bass drum, no not for a second time 
Ain't running with my rhythm, ain't strumming on my strings 
You ain't messing with my music 
Coz it’s my thing, yeah my thing, my thing.
