Frank Ocean Standing Still

[whispered voice:] “MAFIA”

[Frank Ocean]

I’m standing by your locker in the hallway after class

Swear I’m amazed

The drawing in my binder every picture I put a halo on your head

Yeahhhhhhh!

[Chorus]

I’m on waitin on my angel, my first love

My first kiss – my second, my third

The one my mommma, like so much

I’m standin, still for, ya waitin

I’m standin, still ’til, you in there

As the time flies faster baby

You could fly, fly, faster baby

I’m standin – standin still

I’m standin still, standin still

Oh, standin still

[Frank Ocean]

Saturdays I’m at the snow cone spot

Tryin to guess your favorite flavor

I’m thinkin… cotton candy maybe

I’m fallin and I placed it on the table next to me

I wish you could taste it

Cause it’s slowly melting

[Chorus]

[Frank Ocean]

While the rain storm takes over, outrageous baby

I’ll be standing here

Seconds forward, or decades later

I’ll be right there

Oh no matter what

I’ll be here – however long

[Chorus – repeat 2X (both times minus first three lines)]

[Outro]

I’m standin still, standin still

Ohh standin still

Frank Ocean Sweet Life

The best song wasn’t the single, but you weren’t either

Livin’ in Ladera Heights, the black Beverly Hills

Domesticated paradise, palm trees and pools

The water’s blue, swallow the pill

Keepin’ it surreal, whatever you like

Whatever feels good, whatever takes you mountain high

Keepin’ it surreal, not sugar-free

My TV ain’t HD, that’s too real

Grapevine, mango, peaches and limes, the sweet life

Sweet life, sweet life

Sweet life, sweet life

The sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet life

Sweet life, the sweet life

Sweetie pie

You’ve had a landscaper and a house keeper since you were born

The sunshine always kept you warm

So why see the world, when you got the beach

Don’t know why see the world, when you got the beach

The sweet life

The best song wasn’t the single, but you couldn’t turn your radio down

Satellite need a receiver, can’t seem to turn the signal fully off

Transmitting the waves

You’re catching that breeze ’til you’re dead in the grave

But you’re keepin’ it surreal, whatever you like

Whatever feels good, whatever takes you mountain high

Keepin’ it surreal, not sugar-free, my tv ain’t HD, that’s too real

Grapevines, mango, peaches and lime, a sweet life

A sweet life

A sweet life, yeah

A sweet life, a sweet life

A sweet life

Live and die in the life

You’ve had a landscaper and a house keeper since you were born, yeah

The sunshine always kept you warm

So why see the world, when you got the beach

Don’t know why see the world, when you got the beach

And the water, is exactly what I wanted

It’s everything I thought it would be (Thought it would be)

But this neighborhood is gettin’ trippier every day

The neighborhood is goin’ ape shit crazy

You’ve had a landscaper and a house keeper since you were born

The sunshine always kept you warm

So why see the world, when you got the beach

Don’t know why see the world, when you got the beach

The sweet life

Frank Ocean The City

Give me my power [x4], I built this city

Got up in the car, Creeped in the steel, Please give me mine

Tree’s give em’ back, Give me tourists, Give me traffic

Give me noise, Just give it back

Could you bring back all my police, Give me order

Turn back on my lights, Give me fuel and water

I think I’m begging, cause’ now that everything’s gone

I’m needing mine, I’m needing mine

With the streets all dark, It looks like my building’s are gone

I made you the mayor of my town honey

And I’m why you are the senate representative

I gave you the key to my city, Gave you, Power over, Power over me

Give it to me, Give it back to me, The city belongs to me

The city is ours no more

Tell the government, Please give me funding

Can’t you see that I’m doing bad?

Give me floodgates, Give me Levy’s

Too much water can you push it back

How you just gon’ leave me out of of order

I ain’t got no lights and no fuel to start up

I know I’m begging, cause’ now that everything’s dried up

I’m needing mine, I’m needing mine

And with the streets all dark, The buildings look lost

I made you the mayor of my town honey

I’m why you are the senate representative

I gave you the key to my city, All power over, power over me

Give it to me, Give it back to me, The city belongs to me

The city is ours no more

We used to be sky high

We used to be major

We used to be sky high

We used to be major, baby, major

Give it to me, Give it back to me

The city mine baby, This whole city is mine, The city is mine honey

Give it to me, Give it back to me

The city is mine oh baby, The city is mine, The city is mine

Frank Ocean Quickly

If I had 20 million dollars in the vault somewhere baby

It wouldn’t matter anyway, yeah

Cause the doctor told me that I’m dying slowly

So I guess I gotta love you while I’m here baby

Did you know ?

[Hook]

News said that the sky is fallin’

The globe is warmin’

My country’s warin’

The leaders a liar

Time is runnin’

Lower and lower babe lower babe

I know we just met

But baby could you love me quickly, quickly

I want you to love me like ya know the worlds about to end

End baby, quickly

Told me I don’t even know your name

I said well then we mine as well make ours the same

What you think baby. (No time)

Vegas might as well be light years away

So we better lay under the stars

Before they crashin’ down

Cause I heard [Hook]

That’s right baby kiss me like the world is wicked

Like the Earth is shakin’

You got it baby

That’s right love me

Feel me like our time is sprinting faster

Running out on us

I know we just met but baby could you love me quickly, quickly

Gotta love me like you know the worlds about to end

Baby, quickly, yeahh

But you gotta love me quickly, quickly

Ohhh

Quickly

Gotta love me baby, quick now

Gotta love me baby, quickly now

Gotta love me like you know the worlds about to end baby, quickly

Lou said the sky was fallin, yeah

Lou said. Ohh na naaa

Frank Ocean Swim Good

That’s a pretty big trunk

On my Lincoln town car ain’t it

Big enough to take these broken hearts

And put em in it…

Now I’m driving round

On the boulevard trunk bleeding

And every time the cops pull me over

They don’t ever see them

They never see them

And I’ve got this black suit on

Roaming around like I’m ready for a funeral

5 more miles till the road runs out

I’m about to drive in the ocean

Imma try to swim from something

Bigger than me

Kick off my shoes

And swim good

And swim good

Take off this suit

And swim good

And swim good

Good

Got some pretty good beats

On this 808 CD, yeah

Memory seats I’m sitting on stay heated

I would’ve put tints on my windows

But what’s the difference?

If I feel like a ghost no Swayze

Ever since I lost my baby

I’ve had this black suit on

Roaming around like I’m ready for a funeral

One more mile till the road runs out

I’m about to drive in the ocean

Imma try to swim from something

Bigger than me

Kick off my shoes

And swim good

And swim good

Take off this suit

And swim good

And swim good

Good

I’m going off

Don’t try stopping me

I’m going off

Don’t try saving me

No flares

No vest

No fear

Waves are washing me out

I’m about to drive in the ocean

Imma try to swim from something

Bigger than me

Kick off my shoes

And swim good

And swim good

Take off this suit

And swim good

And swim good

Good

Frank Ocean Slide On Me

Gotta rinse off here

I can’t see your diamonds

(I need a week paradise)

(I went God mode all year)

I can’t see so cloudy

(Paradiso laundries)

(I keep the cheats on all year)

Sometime in Heaven

You still behind like ancestor

(All on your mood board all year)

(I went God mode about it)

You God no muscles, lil nigga

(I ain’t in the mood for it all year)

(I keep the cheats on always)

Wrong side of average

Now when you slide on me, you slide on me

You slide on for peace sign, yeah, yeah

That’s a free slide on me, first time’s on me

Next time won’t be, ohh, yeah, yeah

For your mentality you play ball

You run 5 on 5 least three times a week

Glen Park down the street

Waitin’ on you to tire

Retire with victory, play so savagely

Always fighting with them you grew up with

When you lose you don’t cry but you lowkey sad to see

If we cut like some champions you’ll redeem yourself

You’ll sleep happily, uh-haha, smiling

I’m still working while you dream pop

I could never let a scene stop smilin’ on me

I don’t think they get the point pop

They forgettin’ that it’s me, akh

Akhi tell ’em I ain’t gone, wallahi

I’m just all day running numbers

How the fuck you think I live?

Too many heads waitin’ for my downfall

They’re like “something’s gotta give”

Boys in the building give me updates like they know the weather

If you ain’t in the streets you can’t see the sky, I’m out here

I could see the sky and it’s paradise

On the regular

And when you slide on me, you slide on me

You slide on, ohh slide, yeah, yeah

Now when you slide on me, you slide on me

First time on me, ohh, yeah, yeah

This is for when you change your mind and slide back this way

This is for that night when set backs won’t let that much fade

Guess you can’t blame the ones you choose

Frank Ocean Paradise

Trying to find, trying to find the words to say

To show you how I don’t want to spend another day without you

The words get lost they all seem to disappear

The thoughts are stuck paralyzed by this love that’s here to stay

Tell me, tell me why

You’re so damn good to me

Its where I start overthinking

So is it right for me to say

You are my love

You are my love

More then fast it feels like infinity

I feeling soft ballets and symphonies

If only you could look from where I can see

See my vision on the life between me and you

Tell me, tell me why

You’re so damn good to me

Its where I start overthinking

So is it right for me to say

You are my love

You are my love

Frank Ocean White Ferrari

Bad luck to talk on these rides

Mine on the road

Your dilated eyes watch the clouds float

White Ferrari

Had a good time

Sweet 16, how was I supposed to know anything?

I let you out at Central

I didn’t care to state the plain

Kept my mouth closed

We’re both so familiar

White Ferrari

Stick by me

Close by me

You were fine

You were fine here

That’s just a slow body

You left when I forgot to speak

So I text the speech, lesser speeds

Texas speed, yes

Basic takes its toll on me

‘Ventually, ‘ventually, yes

Ah on me ‘ventually, ‘ventually, yes

I care for you still and I will forever

That was my part of the deal, honest

We got so familiar

Spending each day of the year, White Ferrari

Good times

In this life, life

In this life, life

One too many years

Some tattooed eyelids on a facelift

Mind over matter is magic

I do magic

If you think about it it’ll be over in no time

And that’s life

Ooh, oooh, oooh, ooh

I’m sure we’re taller in another dimension

You say we’re small and not worth the mention

You’re tired of movin’, your body’s achin’

We could vacay, there’s places to go

Clearly this isn’t all that there is

Can’t take what’s been given

But we’re so okay here, we’re doing fine

Primal and naked

You dream of walls that hold us imprisoned

It’s just a skull, least that’s what they call it

And we’re free to roam

Frank Ocean Wiseman

Wiseman closed his mouth

Madman closed his fist

Young man shows his age

Judge man named it sin

Bad man don’t exist, no

No evil man exists

Good man don’t exist, no

No righteous man exists

Sad man cannot cry in place where man can see

Never witnessed his father weep

This old man thought it weak

But strong man don’t exist

No undying man exists

Weak man don’t exist, no

Just flesh and blood exists

But your mother would be proud of you

I bet your mother would be proud of you

The beast will crawl this earth

Then fall in the dirt to feed the crows

They’ll rip apart his flesh

‘Till all that’s left is glorious bone

So you’ll bury your own

Too vain

You saw it unfold

What you know

And you claimed all you could hold

Until death did you part from the mess you made

I bet your mother would be proud of you

I bet your mother would be proud of you

Primate sharpens tool

To survive and thrive in the jungle

Maybe hearts were made to pump blood

Maybe lungs were made for flood

I won’t blunt my blade for cut these chains

Rather let my limbs be drug through mud

You’re my brother but your eyes are cold

You’re my sister but your womb is bare

I bet our mother would be proud of you

I bet our mother would be proud of you

Bad man don’t exist

No evil man exists

I know good man don’t exist

No righteous man exists

Strong man don’t exist

No undying man exists

Weak man don’t exist

No just flesh and blood exists

Frank Ocean Wither

Oh where the trees burn down

Place where the fields went down in flames

You could put a hole in the ground

Oh, seasons dance for rain

It takes a mind to wander

Conscience to feel ashamed

There’s no place to hide out here

These skies are filled with pain

And both our hands are filthy

Pointing up at the moon

Girl tonight I hold you close, close enough to prove

Hope a garden grows where we dance this afternoon

Hope our children walk by spring and flowers bloom

Hope they’ll get to see my color

Know that I’ve enjoyed sunshine

Pray they’ll get to see me, me wither (flowers)

See me wither

Oh and I hope

Know that I’ve enjoyed the sunshine

(You know it happens all…)

Know that I’ve enjoyed the sunshine…

Know it happens all… all the time

Be, be, be

You know it happens all… all the time

All the time

Be, be, be

I’m gone

Be, be, be, be
