Track Name: Ms Fortune
Ms Fortune is the name,
Got stopped at customs asked if I was out for fame,
I'm a grateful person,
I struggled many days,
If one day I reached millions,
Do you think I'd complain?
Don't burn your bridges they say,
But I'm never turning back so these words are my flames.

No one's to blame ,
The Wild at heart can not be tamed,
True lion heart you can tell by my mane,
Just look in my eyes,
Drink it all in,
I'm the truth in the wine,
This crazy life of mine,
Just thinking of the future send chills down my spine.
I'm gonna reach my peak so high,
God forbid I come crashing down,
I hope you'll give me the time,
I don't expect any favours,
You're not up for the adventure?
See ya later,
Now you're saltier than capers,
Get it while it's hot,
egos smoked like papers.

Ms Fortune is the name,
Fell down I get up again,
Not a victim of circumstance
Take Fortune into my hands.

Old and New skool together,
This is that change in the weather
Youre a one card trick,
I'm just coming up aces,
Ive got the whole deck with a poker face on
Don't look at others for my validation,
the situation,
You play safe and put the breaks on,
Dropped a mixtape for your marination,
I raise the bar take the standing ovation.

My history has been revealed,
No mystery I need to heal,
Family name was changed from Fortune to Fortuin,
Could it have been a slave name?
Lion St was the place,
My Opa from The Cape,
He carved his own fate,
with bare hands and a lot of faith,
Our History they tried to erase,
We rose with pride amongst the shame,
Now we have to leave the past and live today,
Do my hard yards and lead the way.

Clear my path of self doubt,
After I wore myself out,
Friends and fam helped out,
Swore to move forward, Stand proud,
Can't keep a good woman down,
Can't leave til I grab the crown,
I'm having way too much fun now,
Took a gamble with the cards I found,
In the palm of my hand is the whole crowd,
Good to have around when the chips are down,
Take a bad situation turn it around,
determined to get the perfect sound,
Ferment in the underground,
Her purpose leave you speechless now,
Direct you I teach you how,
Perplex you when I reach the crowd.

Choose my own adventure so,
As for tomorrow you never know,
Don't take a risk you'll never grow,
Had many highs and many lows,
Blaze a cypher steal a show,
Pain persists see Dr. Doe,
Style Confidence and flow,
Follow I know which way to go.
This path can be a lonely road,
Blood sweat tears take a toll,
Practising self control,
Can't lose my heart or lose my soul.

Ms Fortune is the name,
Fell down I get up again,
Not a victim of circumstance
Take Fortune into my hands.
Track Name: Rewiring
Events of the past I put em behind see,
Fiend for random adventure? try me
Staying in your comfort zone is tiring,
Sounds like life needs rewiring
Track Name: Walk Alone ft. Ruth Rogers-Wright + Zee
Pretty gyal,
Why do you walk alone?
Drink yourself sick
So you're not lonely at home,
Dance your feet right down to the bone,
Gyal won't you store my number inside your phone?

Left over love now you think about lust,
The devil you know,
You should fade him like dust,
Sooo

Pretty gyal,
Why do you walk alone?
Drink yourself sick
So you're not lonely at home,
Dance your feet right down to the bone,
Gyal won't you store my number inside your phone?

The vine dem is where I find a lot of friend,
Some last along de way, some are quick to end,
Lust slip up and bend,
Wasted, drunk, punch friend,
Call up the ex, it never ends,
Good friend watch out for me and say,
"Not again! Muma Doesa stop pretend,
this bottle can't be friend anymore,
leave you blind lost and sore,
wake up next day,
what for?"
trying to get over you,
Lose mi dependence,
try to be strong, I feel your essence,
Beckoning detesting good intentions,
Deliciously sick,
Pain licks like from a switch,
Couldn't resist,
This is the path I pick,
This mi reality, sometimes i fear it,
Truth can be so ugly,
Don't wan go near it,
So I drown it out with a rum or spirit,
I know what you gon say
I don't wanna hear it..

Why do you walk alone?

I don't recognise you or the pain you go through,
Can we talk this through,
Can we work this through?
I wanna break the cycle,
But have to help myself too,
Pour liquor in the driver's cup,
Smash up! Accident
Who dis dem? Can't trust dem,
Go without food just to get it,
Steal from liquor store ,
all this and more,
Rewind past mistakes to make more, OH

Why do you walk alone?

Tough love is true man,
We only human,
Sometimes wake up crying ,
Find it hard to sleep,
Mind race with stress, and I grind my teeth,
Nightmares, facing our mortality
Try to numb my pain,
Drink all my pay away,
If you know something better,
Pass it this way,
Til that time come,
All I say, Im just trying to get through today
So many excuses to use,
But me and you have to help me and you,
The choice is yours,
keep in mind,
Holding on,
Til you fall off the vine,
The vine,
The vine.

Why do you walk alone?

You're not alone,
Don't you know i'm here with you.

Drink yourself sick so you're not lonely at home,
Dance You feet right down to the bone.

Pretty girl your hearts on fire..
Track Name: Autumn Leaves
Something sparkles in your eyes.
I tiptoe between skyscrapers,
Autumn leaves fly past like paper,
And get caught in mi hair,
Little reminders of you everywhere..
Shine so bright I have to cover my eyes,
my girls tell me loving you is not wise,
But I enjoy the ride and wait for a surprise,
There's only one take in the movie that is life,
There is no pause and no rewind,
So I get high on your supply,
while the world flies by.

Something sparkles in your eyes,
Like you're waiting to show me a surprise,
Try to guess when you'll arrive,
Silhouettes swim around us now,
Get lost in our world,
I'll show you how,
But first throw caution to the wind,
We got to be lovers,
Don't even think about friends,
Coz this feeling is too intense,
Can't play too cool and no pre tense,
When I read your eyes,
You can't pretend,
My heart pounding in my chest,
While I try to catch my breath,
Listen by my door for your footsteps,
Knock on my window, you know the rest.

Pop the champagne,
Yes yes, we meet again,
Hot blooded in our veins when we meet, always the same,
Try to keep it together but lose composure,
I'm melting under while you pour over,
You got the touch I can't say no so far,
Kicks, Hi hats, cymbals,
Makin my body tingle with your lips and fingers..
Forget all logic, Burning up and you're the tonic,
Public display of affection, we're attracting attention,
Blissfully unaware, you take over my system,
Getting dutty looks , but so caught up, we miss dem
Just can't keep my mouth off your juicy lips dem
My spirits soaring you always lift dem,
And your passionate ways, You know I can't resist dem

Something sparkles in your eyes..

Wait, you're familiar..I know your face,
Aren't you that boy.. from around the way?
Years ago, I saw you with your headphones on all the time,
I never knew you then,
But now you're mine.

Something sparkles in your eyes.
I tiptoe between skyscrapers,
Autumn leaves fly past like paper,
And get caught in mi hair,
Little reminders of you everywhere..
Shine so bright I have to cover my eyes,
my girls tell me loving you is not wise,
But I enjoy the ride and wait for a surprise

Something sparkles in your eyes
Track Name: Caramel Amazon
Caramel Amazon,
Coasting while the others run,
So lock up your mother's sons,
Roasting while the others bun
Track Name: What The Guys Do
Really have to shout to all my Bgirls lacing sneakers tight,
For the same respect-twice as hard we have to fight,
Big up Lady Killers Bombing Walls all night,
Activists fighting for our rights...
Hip Sista Hop bump tunes all we like,
We too rude to listen to advice..
Track Name: Untamed Hearts ft. Jess Harlen
Black eyeliner tears,
Down my face like warpaint,
Seems I'm a soldier of love like Sade,
Maybe I should cut and run,
Just like my mum,
Back in the day,
Takin 3 kids while dad was away,
In the hot water imagining I'm reachin out to you,
Try to send a message but I can't get through.

Our untamed hearts,
Are not meant to be apart,
Sometimes our fiery tongues burn,
And we need time to learn,
What it is about we,
That inspires such poetry
Track Name: Letter to You ft. Jowah
Tears dissolve when hard times end,
Forgiveness brings us together again..
Track Name: Remember
Don't judge a girl by her worn out shoes..
