Good Evening 03:59
Good evening... I figured if we gonna do it Then we might as well do it in style Good evening... And if I may say so Good god what a beautiful crowd, lemme hear it now Ladies, what up, Gentlemen, what up And again, what up, and again, what up Couldn't imagine better people to be with Ladies and gents, good evening May I say that it's a pleasure to be with y'all Actually more like a treasure to be with y'all Actually it's something better than treasure More like a beautiful blessing beyond measure to be with y'all Dreamed about it for years, both asleep and awake Just hoping to sneak a peek at your face And here we are now.. Feel like everything is finally right Yeah, it's gonna be that kind of a night, listen Now I see you lookin good, better work that You know I put that on god, where the church at So many goodlooking people in one place I just needed a second to get my words back Please pardon me for my tardy arrival But I knew that y'all would keep the party alive I know tomorrow might be dark, but tonight'll be marvelous And I wouldn't trade it for every star in the sky, so good evening Good evening... I figured if we gonna do it Then we might as well do it in style Good evening... And if I may say so Good god what a beautiful crowd, lemme hear it now Ladies, what up, Gentlemen, what up And again, what up, and again, what up Couldn't imagine better people to be with Ladies and gents, good evening Its been real y'all, gotta be on my way I need a good night's sleep, I had a long ass day You know that I'm playing, homie you that I'm staying Until I play every song I play Take your card to the bar, go and leave it there Run it up a couple hundred, we don't even care Put your phone down and kick it with your real friends Everybody that matters is in the building Kind of a big deal, huh This room lookin pretty well lit for real, bruh Every face is familiar, and none of them blue From up here, it's a wonderful view Everybody working hard with the rollers and curlers Just to make your eyes light up like the glow of a pearl I know tomorrow might hurt, but tonight'll be perfect And I wouldn't trade it for all the gold in the world, so good evening Good evening... I figured if we gonna do it Then we might as well do it in style Good evening... And if I may say so Good god what a beautiful crowd, lemme hear it now Ladies, what up, Gentlemen, what up And again, what up, and again, what up Couldn't imagine better people to be with Ladies and gents, good evening

Salutations 02:17
Salutations folks, I'm your gracious host And I'd just like to take a moment to make a toast No famous quotes, no tasteless jokes Just raise your glass like its your last, ain't no way to know Here's to the days we do, here's to the days we don't Here's to the days that we walk out on the stage and choke Here's to the sunny days that still leave our faces soaked Here's to my favorite folks that make my heart ache the most Here's to everybody hopin to escape their ghosts Here's to all the wrong ways to cope Here's to you and what you gotta do to make your boat stay afloat Plus an inflated coat, just in case it don't Ups and downs, life is like an elevator But every trip to the basement feels like the brakes are broke A card table in a wave of smoke Play it close to the chest, jack, don't ever let your aces show Even when fate has erased the last trace of hope Even when you pavin a road with no place to go The story ain't over until the last page is wrote and A love song is all talk til you play the notes so Salutations folks, I'm your gracious host And I'd just like to take a moment to make a toast No famous quotes, no tasteless jokes Just raise your glass like its your last, ain't no way to know

Man, how long has it been, I couldn't do the math I just stumbled on some old pictures of us and I Choked up and chuckled thinkin bout the fun we used to have Those were my happiest days, I hope they wasn't yours I like to think since then you've had a couple more Oh me? Still writin songs but I got no one to sing em to And there ain't a day that I don't think of you Lord knows it's some things that I didn't say I don't remember how I let the moments get away And please forgive me if I couldn't look in your eyes I never was good at goodbyes, but Anyway, I know it's hard gettin through the years So I wrote you this song as a souvenir Truly yours, P.S. - I would wish you the best But I'd be lyin cause I only wish you were here Been a pleasure but it's time to go Hope I meet you somewhere down the road, baby Forget me not, now Good times ain't made to last Nothin left to do but raise your glass, baby Forget me not, now
