Trust Not

Trust Not" is laced with that early 70's big rock/horn fusion sound. A departure from his previous work, "Trust Not" seamlessly blends jazz, prog rock and funk into what can best be described as a musical expression of the rage and regret we all feel when a sacred trust is broken.

Lyrics:

One little secret between us, keep it to yourself.
Don’t go and tell-a your mama, or anyone else.
Cross your heart and a hope to die, cross your heart and don’t you lie.
Cause, I need someone to trust, baby you should do.

So, baby don’t you try. 
And baby don’t you cry. 
And baby don’t cha baby don’t try to lie, lie to a me.

There’s no getting through this mess without ya, baby keep your cool.
But, choose your side so a carefully. Cause-a you just-a might loose.
Cross your heart and a hope to die, cross your heart and a don’t ya lie.
Cause, I needed someone to trust – shouldn’t have trusted you.

Shouldn’t have trusted you, no, no, no. Shouldn’t have trusted you.
Shouldn’t have trusted you no, no no. Cause it’s my turn to cry. 
Yes, it’s my turn to cry. Cry baby, cry baby, cry baby, cry baby cry.

No, no, no, no, no. No, no, no, no. No, no, no, no, oh no, no!
Oh, no!

So, baby don’t you cry cause a there's no reason to cry.
Told you not to lie, but you lied. 
You crossed your heart and you hoped to die.
Crossed your heart now it’s time to die.
Cause, I needed someone to trust, shouldn’t have trusted you – untrustworthy you.

Cause you, lied to your Mama!
And you lied to your Papa!
And you lied to your sister and your little baby brother.

Your a, liar lady, lying, lying lady. Just a, liar lady, all you do is lie to me baby. 
Liar lady, lying, lying, lady. Just a liar lady, lying, lying lady.

'Cause I, trust not the way you squeeze me!
Trust not the way you tease me!
Trust not the way you please me baby!
Trust not the way you leave me honey! 
Trust not, no, no, no, no, no no.

Never ever will I ever, ever, no I’ll never.
Never ever will I ever, ever no I’ll never, 
Never ever will I ever, ever, ever trust again.

Never, trust not, trust not – will I.
Trust not, trust not – ever. 
Trust not, trust not – trust.

Trust not the way you squeeze me!
Trust not the way you tease me!
Trust not the way you leave me honey! 
Trust not, no, no, no, no, no, no.

Never ever will I ever, ever, no I’ll never.
Never ever will I ever, ever no I’ll never, 
Never ever will I ever, ever, ever trust again.
Never ever will I ever, ever, ever trust again.
