Moods & Moments: #ToniBraxton ‘Stupid’ [audio]

toni-braxton-stupid-thegamutt

I.Q.

Fighting against myself

Making decisions with a clouded mind

Not realizing why

The crime was mine

I’m crying on, lying on

Storytelling, trippin, back tracking

The stories unfolding, but not in sequence

Pulling characters out of thin air, just stupid missteps

That could cost a fortune

What a high price to pay

For the bed you made, just lay

But for how long?

The hands lurch forward a second then a minute then a year]

When?

Face it, conquer that fear

Just stupid.

Stupid to dream with no action

Stupid to leap with no momentum.

Break the glass and reach

With outward arms extend above and beyond

The longest of travels takes a step to begin

You have to for your sanity.

Intelligence quota exceeded.

Get out of your head and live…

-Zam Zhinga

Let’s melt into the NIGHT…. was inspire by Toni Braxton’s ‘Stupid’ this time… Continue reading Moods & Moments: #ToniBraxton ‘Stupid’

If the ROMANCE rumors between Toni Braxton and Birdman were’nt high before, after this they are sure to be FEVER PITCH!  Toni just dropped a new London On Da Track cut, ‘Heart Away’ featuring Birdman where she sings:

“He took my heart away,” sings Braxton over trap drums and and piano keys. “Bad man with good manner / Played me like I was a habit / Middle finger, he could have it / I used to dream of livin’ lavish / Now a girl’s a livin’ legend.”

Playing ”Clyde’ to her ‘Bonnie’ Birdman returns:
“in L.A. with Stunna. Overseas and we high, steering wheel on the right side,” Good girl with a bad guy, I took her heart, I won’t lie.”
