about

As he pushed his own cheek further into the warm, damp pavement of the alleyway, Frank found himself thinking of only one thing: that in the 42 years of his life, he had not once tasted the skin, flesh, or juice of a papaya. What an odd thought, he mused, as the pavement began to cut into his skin. The humid night air gradually corporealized into a mist and then to rain, water from the heavens finding its way into Frank’s half open mouth. He imagined, as he lay there willing himself to die, that the rain tasted like papayas. And papayas, of course, tasted like Lucy.

As he pushed his own cheek further into the warm, damp pavement of the alleyway, Frank found himself thinking of only one thing: that in the 42 years of his life, he had not once tasted the skin, flesh, or juice of a papaya. What an odd thought, he mused, as the pavement began to cut into his skin. The humid night air gradually corporealized into a mist and then to rain, water from the heavens finding its way into Frank’s half open mouth. He imagined, as he lay there willing himself to die, that the rain tasted like papayas. And papayas, of course, tasted like Lucy.
Track Name: caught in the groove
[Verse 1]
I'm looking at you
Looking way too fly
Don't know what to do
Best believe I'ma try
Try to get with you
Take you so damn high
Penthouse bedroom
Making love in the sky

[Pre-Chorus]
Well you gon' slay my heart, my heart
Move your body down this way, uh huh uh huh
You can feel it in this place, my lord my lord
You got me, I can't escape, uh uh

[Chorus]
I'm caught in the groove with you
I'm caught in the groove with you
Yeah, I'm caught in the groove with you
I'm caught in the groove with you
I'm caught in the groove with you
I'm caught in the groove with you
I'm caught in the groove with you

[Verse 2]
I'm a young boy, I'm on top of the world
I'm a young buck when it comes to the girls
serve em roast duck and go up to the room
play em sick beats and the bass go boom
And I-I-I I know you want me
I-I-I, well I want you too

[Bridge]
Well you can find me in the back of the room
And I come in peace, it's a fact, it's the truth
Now you all on me like the cats at the zoo
'Cause I'm so damn clean, and I'm passionate too
And I'm catching the groove, infectious
'Bout to take some pictures
Body moving smooth 'cause you're down with the sickness
Tongue feelin' loose 'cause I'm down with the liquors
Come to my room, we'll get down and reckless

[Pre-Chorus]
You gon' slay my heart, my heart
Move your body down this way, uh huh, uh huh
You can feel it in this place, my lord, my lord
You got me, I can't escape, uh uh

[Chorus]
I'm caught in the groove with you
I'm caught in the groove with you
Yeah I'm caught in the groove with you
I'm caught in the groove with you
I'm caught in the groove with you
I'm caught in the groove with you
I'm caught in the groove with you

[Verse 3]
Everybody get real down tonight (okay)
Every girl get your man tonight (uh huh)
I don't know what your plans tonight
But we gonna be here 'till the morning light (whoop whoop)
Everybody get real down tonight
Every girl get your man tonight (I mean)
I don't know what your plans tonight, oh

[Outro]
I'm caught in the groove with you
I'm caught in the groove with you
Yeah, I'm caught in the groove with you
Yeah, I'm caught in the groove with you
Yeah, I'm caught in the groove with you
etc
