Track Name: Departure Lounges
These hotel rooms, they the closest thing that I have to a home
And all these friends wouldn't be around without my microphone
It ain't a bad or a sad life, nah
I just live a little amplified
Not to blow my own bagpipe,
but tooting a horn would be too small
I'm just the best at doing what I do
whenever and whatever that thing may be.
The scars on my face tell the tale of love
on an ocean of dreams where sailing ain't enough, love
When I was young I couldn't hold my tongue
Now I'm surrounded by superstars that hold their numb
Strummin' my guitar on stages I ain't never
think I'd ever see, now my legacy forever
Happily ever after - how I finish the chapter
the Robin Hood of Bollywood hearin' childrens' laughter
Master of my own soul, master of my own home
Nabin - one with ever energy like OM
So alone till October 8
Surgeon of the vibrate, people watch me operate
contemplate Bonita Applebum, Tape Deck Prophets
Func Spec's love 'cause steady be how I drop it
Came outta the darkness positive and I talk it
At the speed of life - the talk I walk it

Kolkata haircut, New Delhi mentality
Bombay money - you don't got my batteries
Kolkata haircut, New Delhi mentality
Bombay money - you don't got my batteries
Kolkata haircut, New Delhi mentality
Bombay money - you don't got my batteries
Kolkata haircut, New Delhi mentality
Bombay money - you don't got my batteries

My heart can only scream so loud
before it breaks and I'm left pickin up the pieces, yes
It can only scream so loud
before it breaks and I'm left pickin up the pieces, Shef
It can scream so loud
before it breaks and I'm left pickin up the pieces, yes, Shef
it screams so loud before it breaks
and I'm left pickin up the pieces

[interlude]

Award winning from the beginning
make history, yes while I be livin' it
Got a cousin that's doin the same thing
rockin' them bells - got the same ring
Kolkata, and we livin' in the moment
17 hours across the ocean
back in Brooklyn, yes the party goin
I be singin' la di da di and the rythmn keep flowin
Kolkata, and we livin' in the moment
17 hours across the ocean
back in Brooklyn, yes the party goin
I be singin' la di da di and it keep flowin

Departure lounges, departure lounges, departure lounges
show me where the ground is

Track Name: Girlfriend Experience
Verse 1
Said it wouldn't happen, you said it couldn't happen
no, you wouldn't treat me like you treated all of them
Said that you need me believe me girl,
I tried to be your best friend
But what happens when you break everything you create
inside of the context
of a beautiful relationship then you stop to relate
and start to make threats

Pre Chorus
No, I never too my love and gave it away
You were the only one
Yes yes, you were the only one
And you got so jealous and insecure
Stopped being my girlfriend

Chorus
I have nobody tonight
Would it be alright
If I wanted you by my side?

Verse 2
New Delhi to Goa you followed me and in the end
I couldn't even accept your apologies
Please stop my heart from bleeding and
crying all the time
It's sorta useless
The way I look at it it's feelin' so useless
I know you lost nothing in the end
But in the end
All I lost was my true girlfriend

Pre Chorus
No, I never too my love and gave it away
You were the only one
Yes yes, you were the only one
And you got so jealous and insecure
Stopped being my girlfriend

Chorus
I have nobody tonight
Would it be alright
If I wanted you by my side?
If I wanted you by my side...

Bridge
No I'll
never say never
learning right now
to never say never
again
