about

Son Little Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Son Little's self-titled debut album is nu-soul, not neo-soul, and the distinction is drastic. Little doesn't strive to reproduce his influences; he recombines them into something new.

Track Name: The River
many a moon come this way at night
many a moon come and shine her light
taking her clothes off it break my mind
taking her clothes off gone take off mine
want you so bad it’s like i’m out of time
want you so bad i had to break your mind
gimme your love baby all the time
gimme your love baby you got mine, now

walk me to the river darlin
rock me in the river darlin
i (feel you) start to shiver about it
walk me to the river darlin

most of my friends now they blow me off
most of my friends gone and blown me off
can’t really blame them baby: i got lost
can’t even blame them baby: i fell off

deep in the woods, girl where we get off
deep in the woods, girl where we get off
run with the wolves, girl i’m never lost
run with the wolves, girl i’m never lost, now

walk me to the river darlin
rock me in the river darlin
i (feel you) start to shiver about it
walk me to the river darlin

20 to 7 baby, time to rise
20 to 7 baby, time to rise
heart is blazing blue electric fire
heart is blazing blue electric fire
want you so bad it’s like i’m out of time
want you so bad i had to break your mind
gimme your love baby, all yr time
gimme your love baby, you got mine, now
Track Name: Your Love Will Blow Me Away When My Heart Aches
When my heart aches I'm drowning
Pain won't go away
And in my cups brown fills my brain won't go away
These five yellow girls all on parade assphyxiate
Still stuck in a cage tryna ply my trade won't go away

And I'm afraid
Yer love won't blow me away
Am I dumb?
All cuz I numb the pain
Or am I just another runaway

When shadows creep across my floor won't go away
You've had enough but still want more won't go away
My engine gunning thunderbirds
Asphalt wanna race? Still trapped in a box tryna clear my name won't go away
Runaway

This afghan kush we're bubbling won't burn away
My moon my queen been gone since may so I lie awake
My easy death in ecstasy my hands still shake
When my heart aches I'm drowning pain won't go away
Runaway
Track Name: Cross My Heart
tom and bobby
they gone
they don't live here long
but i'm still knocking
and clawing
wishing gonna get me none
all or nothing
get on
bang the guns bang these drums
come in hungry
you gone
left us with none but crumbs

out in the fields
we're the same
out here, my dear
ain't nothin changed
cross my heart

for love, for money
for what?
trying to sell hot to the sun
sex and candy
so young, bet i'm gonna get me some
rum and honey
you run, run till your heart feel numb
come, i'm hungry
you gone
left us to scrap for crumbs

out in the fields
we're the same
bad deal, flash steel
get locked in cage
well, ain't we brave
feel my rage
cross my heart
nothing changed
all i want
is no more pain
cross my heart
Track Name: Joy
my joy
my joy, o lovely one
where have you gone?

my joy
my joy, you’re all night long
i need you now

and you haunt me
like a ghost
then disappear in smoke
and leave me alone
leave my weary heart alone
alone

my joy
my joy, you golden goose
i love you more
Track Name: Alice
you prisoner of fate
if i pinch you on the waist
mean i don’t have time to waste
i’m in Dallas
and i’m busy can this wait
coulda been there yesterday
so if you got nothin to say
let me say

aw girl
have no fear
i want you to look at this for real

see my chalice
been empty all this time
and there is no reason why
i should have to sit bone dry
doesn’t matter
i’m leaving yesterday
so if you got nothin to say
let me say

chorus

absent malice
it’s a simple twist of fate
and if i pinch you on the waist
mean i have no time to wait
back in Dallas
and i’m busy can this wait?
coulda been there yesterday
and there ain’t nothin left to say

chorus
