Track Name: Then To Now
It's been a long journey from then to now
From then to now
From then to now
I said it's been a long journey from then to now
From then to now
From then to now

[Verse 1]
I remember looking at the moon at night
Wishing hard that I
Could be anywhere but where I was
I remember holding myself so tight
Trying with all my might
Not to break down

I have to remind myself that
I'm not back there anymore
But old habits, they do die hard
It's such an inner war


I remember what it was to be alone
Far away from home
Dreaming I could be someone someday
I remember feeling oh-so far lost
Too broke to count the cost
Wanting to fade away



I said it's been a long journey from then to now

And now I understand the purpose of it all
Of every single tear that ever had to fall
Track Name: My Name Is
[Verse 1]
We got a love like a roller coaster
I run my hands over your shoulders
You're quite a lover man
Call me up again

We can groove it any way you want to
Shock you like a blue light in a white, white room
I'll be your lover
You can call me again

I'm Aria
Call me up at midnight
I will blow your mind
My name is Lanelle

Call me up, call me up

[Verse 2]
I gave you love that you only dreamed of
You know what I got is a cut above
It's just your lucky day
Wanna be together again?

It's a battle living deep inside your mind
Should you stay or leave me far behind?
If love was a ratings game
You would be my perfect 10


I know that sometimes our love is crazy
And sometimes we both wanna walk away
But just remember who loves you
And remember my name

I'm Lanelle, hey call me up
Track Name: League
[Verse 1]
And he will turn his back on me, like...
Yet he be in my DMs in the nighttime
And he be checking for my curves, right
My body like wow with a MENSA mind, alright

You can't play these games and expect I'ma come running
I'm not these other girls that you holla at
You done rolled up on an A1, first class, primo leading lady
I'ma steamroll over you, I won't never, ever be your baby

I'm so out of your league
I guess I could use you for something
(What that mouth do?)
Ain't that what you wanted me for?
How does it feel?
Tables turned on you
Out of your league, out of your league
Out of your league, out of your league

[Verse 2]
And now I turn my back on him
All cause he can't treat me right
All this juice I got inside of me
He couldn't find it with a flashlight



Now you're hurt and you're salty
Shade more than all my drag queen homies
It don't feel good, do it baby?
Cause it feel real good to me baby

Track Name: Read Your Mind (ft. Planetarian)
[Verse 1]
Sometimes I keep myself so closed off
And it's hard for me to break through
'Cause I just wanna keep my armor on
But it's hurting me in the end to fight you

And then you have this sweet way of yours
Getting me to open, open, open up in time
And you say
And you say

I'd like to read your mind

[Verse 2]
I fight so hard to welcome you
'Cause the world has taught me many, many things
But love and kindness is so new to me
Not used to not feeling pain



If you think you can do it
Highlight the lines in me you find so beautifully human

[Verse 3]
Like I said, sometimes I keep myself so closed off
And it's hard for you to break through
But I just really wanna keep my armor on
And it's hurting me in the end to fight you


I'd like to read your mind
(Would you read it like a book?
What story would my pages tell?)
Track Name: Your Love (ft. Rod Bonner)
[Verse 1]
Such a revelation
You're the brightest star
In love's constellation
Just to have you near me
Is so amazing
You're the only one
I would ever call
My baby, baby, baby

I don't know what I would do, baby
Without you, without you
Life for me would be cruel
Without you, without you

You've got me on one
Cause I'm out here zoning, jonesing, calling for you baby
I'm going higher 'cause you're my desire, fire, my
Yeah you baby

Your love got me feeling oh-so-high

[Verse 2]
You're the key to my heart
And you open up my freedom
Every time you're here it's
You're the man that I need
Just you and me

Oh I would be so blue, baby
Without you, without you
I'd be so lost, baby
Without you, without you



Yeah, so high
Your love
Track Name: Mary's Peace
You're in heaven now, be at peace.
