brother ali – shine on lyrics


shine on
(feat. nikki jean)

[hook x2: nikki jean]
don’t pay me no mind, baby
shine shine shine
don’t pay me no mind, sugar
shine shine shine

[verse 1: brother ali]
i had seen you when the hosted seated you
in a station of mine still i’m taking my time
made sure the moment got seized, made up my mind
through a napkin over my sleeve, straightened my tie
mind if i behold you through the fold of your menu
couture, all up against you, oh lord
how could i convince you? i just met you
and i’m instantly listening to your instrumental
poor me, i poured water inside your gl-ss
for a brief moment our eyes had kind of met
i confess, i felt that inside my chest
almost made quite a mess yet i digress
i would guess you’re meeting a date here
i offer, she order hors d’oeuvres while she wait here
she brushed her bangs to clear off her face, yeah
parted her lips and turned crab cakes to shakespeare

[hook x2]

[verse 2]
the way the lady bait a trap, i’m afraid to ask
my imagination act, i run away with that
run away with me, i swear i’m not a maniac
i’ll give you that pretty diamond ring and last name to match
i ain’t saying that, i practiced waiting in the back
i know i better make it fast before her date get back
yeah, i place her order, grabbed the plate, relaxed
here, let me fix my face get my game in tact
fear, i chased the clock as i can’t make it stop
i played the waiter job, made it to the table top
time to play your cards, ace got to take your shot
before i could speak he showed up to devastate the plot
her real server showed up, my plan fell through
“sir, are y’all together? ma’am, can i help you?”
she looking puzzled, i stand without words
i’m sorry, i don’t really work here – awkward

[hook x2]

[verse 3]
let me explain, you see i ain’t much for wait and see
so when i seen you take a seat i played maitre d’
she replied angrily, “mister, i can’t believe
you’d stand your grown -ss in this place and play games with me
crazy freak, wait, how did you get all that food?”
i ordered from the table around the corner and brought it to you
can’t say i thought it through, ma’am it’s all sort of new
but when i saw you i sort of knew i had to talk to you
and nothing in my -rs-nal seemed possible
so i called an audible, serve you? i’m honored to
i didn’t mean to bother you, i just want to watch a few
moments of your life much like a fly on a wall would do
never mind me, the light from your unusually bright shine blinded me
so that was all i could see, (i) understand if you don’t want to talk to me
i’ll just leave, pardon me, i’ll just take this little broken heart and leave
“wait, that was a stupid thing to do
but my date didn’t show up and my table’s set for two”
i pulled on my coat like, aw look at you
that’s all i really wanted ma’am enjoy your afternoon
i’m through
