My Girls Lyrics
There isn't much that I feel I'd need
A solid soul and the blood I bleed
But with a little girl, and by my spouse
I only want a proper house

What You Know Lyrics
In a few weeks, I will get time
To realize it's right before my eyes
And I can take it, if it's what I want to do

I am leaving, this is starting

I Always Knew Lyrics
Down, down in my bones
Somewhere I'd never ever known
Right at the back of my head
It hit me like a beam of light
Hit me like a hook of the right
