Song Concept: Three separate stories that share similar qualities. The song opens with a man trying to win the heart of a woman and to show her whats really important in life; but the woman isnt interested and he has no choice but to accept it.

In the second verse, a man tries to prevent a young woman that he cares for from falling into the hands of other men that are looking to just take advantage of her. The woman in question becomes attracted to this man as a result of his concern, but when the man turns down her romantic proposals, she is devastated and ends up right where he tried to prevent her from being.

In the last act, a man is desperately trying to find the woman that he loves, and is scouring the city for her. Upon finding her, the listener comes to realize that this woman is a prostitute in the escort industry. After breaking into a session that is in progress, he confesses his love for her. But she is not interested in living the life that he has planned for them, and he finally comes to realize that he has no choice but to let her go.


Verse 1:
I guess the reason I’m taking
I guess the reason I’m taking by aiming for pleasuring people
I’m giving you high
And the higher I am is never less than level but never beneath you
I should swallow my pride
But my pride keeps me reaching like a shorty’s see through
It’s as strong as a bar stool that keeps you
My name is Isaac
It’s a pleasure to meet you
I’ll give my hand but you’ll bite the shit that feeds you
I’ll give my life so every sin can leave you
You’re looking for lessons in life
Let me teach you
You need to stop talking and acting like you’re walking or something
Instead of fronting
Instead of fronting the answer is change
Your ways, your views
Your life in exchange
I’ve tried, I’ve reached my body is drained
My cause is left, but you’re left with the blame

Reach for me

Verse 2:
Uh oh
Here we go
Another captain save a ho
Trying to catch the baby do before she goes foul
From the big bear with crazy flow
Hungry cats that crave her
So are that wolf pack that plays the low but always on the prowl
See she was just a child with improper guidance
And every guy that eyed sis replied with improper wise cracks
But deep inside she liked that
It help her self esteem
But the truth is that she beemed
Sold a fool for endless dreams
So I chose to intervene
And show this teen the light
What this teen seen she liked
A cinema scene for her life
The picked fence she seen was white
With the house and the kid
But under that blouse was a kid
I just souched with adage
Told her fly south and she did
The split hit her hard
I was convinced I did my part with good intent from the start
I thought I taught sweetheart street smarts
But it was I left in the dark
Cuz months later from her depart
Found her swimming with the sharks

Reach for me

Verse 3:
Helping her she wouldn’t help herself
I’ve been looking forever and now my head just swells
Couldn’t find her but her friends they tell
At the spot where the taste and smell lace my face
In chasing hell, all’s well
Some things should never sell
No price
Say goodbye to those lullaby nights
Full of “tried / mights”
I resort to force
Bust the door and take her away of course
Intimate bedding with intricate settings
Their sex exchange I thwart
Tell her how I feel
Let her know that what’s inside is real
My heart collapsed as soon as she said no deal
Her client’s mouth caused his head to reel when I struck his throat
It was sealed
Off she went but this time it meant
No search and rescues left
She’s gone
I feel such confusion
I’m losing strength
Sometimes you gotta move where no music’s soothing
Across a path that’s ruthless
Rubik’s cube my blueprint
Why do I love a nuisance?
Tell me how I am supposed to do this

Reach for me
