(inspired by the song of the same name)

I could be yours for hours

You always come first

And have me going back for seconds

Teaching me things over and over

Like I never learned my lesson

Who knows how one’s body could have

All the answers to our questions

Thank you for your blessings


Hours and hours

I trace the minutes with my big and little hands

The blueprint of our love

Was part of the plan

But I wasn’t able to meet your demands

I wasn’t down with your circumstance 

You wanted to leave for another man


I was yours

You was never mine

We could never been ours

Too mutually exclusive

Without being inclusive

Without being conducive 

So your heart become very elusive

And I didn’t want to be intrusive


I was never yours 

You said you were mine

In reality nothing was ever ours

You had me make you come first

Not going back for seconds

You really became the worst

Valentine’s Day was this week and this next artist dropped the song the celebrate the occasion not too long ago. Singer/songwriter Muni Long released her hit single, Hrs & Hrs and it’s the slow jam you’ve been missing in your life.

For those that have that special someone or yearning for that person, this track will set the mood for you. This had me thinking of past relationships and looking to the future.
