[unknown singer] Love is like water, flowin, flowin every which way When you think it's flown one direction It does, it does go the other way-ayyy-ayyy [Grand Agent] Ohhhhhhhhahhhhhh End to end, end to end Experience, experience, a new sensation Some of this is factual, most of it ain't a lie Two days before autumn, fifty-two after July The sun shone bright, on time was her flight Shot to LAX absolute, positive like Only the shit-brown '82 Corrola could Drive up inside arrivals, guess who lookin good like five-six, archive thick, broad hips I downshift and coast to the curb like word She cheesin up while I easin up, double park Throw the blinkers on, jump out, God bless her heart Lookin like a tourist with the duffel and camera Throw the bags in the back, we embrace then I slam the hatch Right back where we left off When we built for three weeks but then I stepped off It just so happened, we met like ships passin Rappin, no actual action Now here she was live, all the way from back home Bodily counterpart to the voice over the phone I spoke to for strong minutes, long distance Even wrote a note with a quote of song in it The bus thrust me sixty East of L.A. The length to which I went to find words to say 3K, took me three days to get here It took her six hours - that equal twenty-three years Love won't let me wait a minute more There's a bomb to the left of my passenger door with a hundred-twenty hours to diffuse it or lose it Got to need to relate to this queen like music Or else, else or go from wealth to poor Never that, take the prize and floor it to the shore No small talk, give me a medium speech We fitta slit the wrist the of time on Manhattan Beach [Chorus: same unknown singer] Love is like water, flowin flowin every which way When you think it's flown one direction, it done it done flown the other way [Grand Agent] Said the flight was peace, said she happy to see me Said she want to check her aunt in the valley of Simi Can't believe that she here, told I couldn't either Right hand volleyin, gearshift receiver Cause I play it by ear and she habitually plans Twenty minutes we was parked fifty feet from the sand Laid our troubles, down like bodies on the quilt on the strand on September 21st and we built Anatomical ebonics was the language Speakin much silence cause we both thinkin bout the same shit How we found ourselves back together by a bond that was based solely on fair weather Truth be told, we ain't even know each other Tryin to prove that we did gave us somethin to show each other And it can never be chumped again We left the beach and jetted East towards the Comfort Inn Sixty-two minute transit through Southern Cali The hotel was near the rest in Moreno Valley where I was stayin with a friend of the fam who had made no concessions for a friend of the Grand Agent at the front desk who checked us in was Filipino, the housekeeper was Mexican And, 217 was the room that she cleaned After me and this queen has said and did everything We traded baths, body massages, laughs Future aspirations and accounts of the past Quality time, probably rhyme material The last breakfast: donuts, Tang, cereal 'Twas continental and the trip monumental Did a gang of things coulda swore I wasn't into But the swearin was impairin my ability to give and receive love, plus humility [Chorus] Love is like water, flowin flowin every which way When you think it's flown one direction, it done it done flown the other way Love is like water, flowin flowin every which way.. [Grand Agent] Than real time, I was movin faster On a stage, with no Ceremony to Master But then saw the lights like the rest of my life Just mics, no whores, imagine wives on tours wit Momsug, Like yo, "How would you rather...?" The cockiness to pop quiz Wiz didn't gather Well not before she left anyway But I feel like I can spill and reveal it any day And never be too soon or too late These thoughts and others, they run through me at the gate while, she checkin bags bout to make her trip round Back to a world minus me she was bound And I was left behind to write this rhyme It took time cause she bounced with a piece of my mind Yeah, disappear she did, my new cohort I was back on my solo and the whole airport it felt vacant, I'm just another face in the pool Now that my reflection is no more visible Back to my MCI empty identity I wrote before she bounced even like, "Remember me!" Yeah whateva ya do, darlin do Cause whateva ya did took me outta what I'm all into Even had me second guessin my profession Her presence like a lesson that inspired such questions What the f*ck am I still rhymin for? If I ain't blow yet, I must got bad timin or it ain't for me, could that possibly be? I even lost a battle to a lesser MC Being the fresher MC, I got my little pride hurt for holdin the mic, like the body inside of the skirt And practically gave the title away Cause in a spell I would have to say, "L.A. farewell" [Outro: same singer] Love is like water, flowin flowin every which way When you think it's flown one direction, it done it done flown the other way Love is like water, flowin flowin every which way When you think it's flown one direction, it done it done flown the other way Love is like water, flowin flowin every which way
