JALENKWRIGHT Feeling "Ecstatic" following the release of his acclaimed 'Wolves' Clothing' album, Curbside Jones takes Japan on 'Milk Tea Chronicles'. Curbside Jones departs from the dark lyrical content but does not hide behind his beats; the newlywed groom finds refuge in the hooks and melodies which is foreign territory that he turns into his stomping ground. Curbside Jones may be "counting sheep" but he is not asleep: he is living his dreams. Each replay is a revisit where something new can be discovered. Favorite track: Escape The Litch.

[Intro: Curbside Jones] Yo yo yo I wrote this, I wrote this song that I wanted you to hear [Hook: OD] Sorry I can't come to the phone right now Honestly just leave me alone right now I'm all messed up inside I'm trying to get right so I'ma hit you back whenever I find my light Sorry I can't come to the phone right now Honestly just leave me alone right now I'm all messed up inside I'm trying to get right so I'ma hit you back whenever I find my light [Verse: Curbside Jones] I said, "Damn baby, what's that look on your face for?" She said, "Life is like a game of Phase 10 and I'm stuck on Phase 4!" Feeling like I can't keep up with everybody outside me but Every time I see your smile your light is beside me We all try to find that leap of faith if you fall scream, "Geronimo!" It won't hurt, trust me, that was me on a long time ago The Litch stole my light had me feeling like I wasn't worthy Tryna put up a fight but couldn't understand life's wordplay Couldn't fill in the blank alphabet soup was all vowels, no consonants Failed to see my life's prominence so I leapt to different continents My homie Dijon said my time was on the way for me Had me FaceTiming God asking for more time in the day for me Had the Litch in my ear whispering tales of escapism Don't feel sorry for me I ain't trying to play the victim Now I walk the road less traveled hoping that it takes me home I'ma call you later wait, hold up where's my... [Bridge: OD] Sorry if I couldn't answer I was trying to advance but I... I'ma hit you back I said sorry if I couldn't answer I was trying to advance but I... I'm just trying to get right, yeah [Hook: OD] Sorry I can't come to the phone right now Honestly just leave me alone right now I'm all messed up inside I'm trying to get right so I'ma hit you back whenever I find my light Sorry I can't come to the phone right now Honestly just leave me alone right now I'm all messed up inside I'm trying to get right so I'ma hit you back whenever I find my light (I'ma hit you back!) [Outro: The Singers Unlimited] There was a boy A very strange enchanted boy They say he wandered very far, very far Over land and sea...

Verse 1] I wrote this 30,000 feet over the Earth's surface Took a trip to Japan to further understand my purpose Sleepless in Shibuya, told my wife to pass the ZzzQuil Took a drag of that jet lag, now it’s time to let that sleep spill We counting sheep and yo We counting sheep and uh We counting sheep and uh We counting sheep I gave y'all honesty on my last joint glad y'all came out Some won’t appreciate it until the pastor sings my name out I know that sounds morbid, acute depression still dormant Tears of a clown, every days a performance Shows don’t stop for one monkey, gotta get that off my back now About to start a family gotta speak through these raps now Saw true beauty dancing with my mother for the first time After my wife walked down the aisle wishing I could reverse time I'm counting sheep for now I'm counting sheep and uh I'm counting sheep for now I'm counting sheep [Chorus] I heard your real dreams come alive in the nighttime You gotta get up and get yours, there ain't no right time Open up your heart homie, and let your light shine Yo let you light shine, let your light shine [Chorus] I heard your real dreams come alive in the nighttime You gotta get up and get yours, there ain't no right time Open up your heart homie, and let your light shine Yo let you light shine, let your light shine [Verse 2] I tried to see the light through the eyes of a seven year old He asked why his grandma died and if heaven was in the clouds I stopped him and asked, "What if we living in heaven right now?" He said, "No... it's too ugly. Streets should be paved with gold." So I closed my eyes and tried to picture his scenery Tried to reflect on self and what does heaven mean to me Kanye coulda bought his way into heaven but instead he copped a chain Mo money mo problems grandpa copped our last name My conscience asked me, "What you live for? What would you kill for? Is it a dollar bill or is there still more?" Had to travel the globe to change the beauty I behold So now when I close my eyes I tell him I see gold Poured out a Calpico for those who couldn't make it as planned Hiked a mountain in Kyoto but still couldn't touch your hands You counting sheep forever You counting sheep and uh You counting sheep forever You counting sheep [Bridge] Will you still be with me in the morning? Will you still be with me in the evening? Will I still see your light when I'm yawning? Baby you got me fiending Baby you got me fiending As light bust through the clouds to clearly remind me you everywhere Trap house, pavements, and burbs My people let your light shine ya let your light shine My people let your light shine, let your light shine [Bridge] Will you still be with me in the morning? Will you still be with me in the evening? Will I still see your light when I'm yawning? Baby you got me fiending Baby you got me fiending As light bust through the clouds to clearly remind me you everywhere Trap house, pavements, and burbs My people let your light shine ya let your light shine My people let your light shine, let your light shine

about

Inspired by my travels to Japan after getting married in 2017. I was in a place where I lost the joy of making music and was on the verge of quitting. I had to remember to find my light and draw from the beauty of life to move forward.

This is the journey of a boy who had his light stolen and now wants to regain it.

Find your light.
