"Scratch" as written by Jill H. Scott, Tarik L. Collins, Scott Spencer Storch and Ahmir K. Thompson....
I've been sitting here for hours
A burning image of her in my mind
Finding comfort in what you say
But its not the same

I know you're worth the wait
And I can't explain what I'm going through inside
But I would turn away the world
Just to have her here with me tonight

Take your time
Making sure that
Everything feels right
It won't be easy
But I'm not afraid
She's so far away

You better start from scratch
Its now or never
But we can't look back
I need you with me
For another day
She's so far away
Yeah far away

I've been sitting here forever
Your voice is resonating in my mind
Countless hours with you on the phone
And now I'm not alone
I know you're worth the wait
And I can't escape
What I'm going through inside
But I would turn away the world
Just to have her here with me tonight

I know there's no time left for second chances
Still we're right despite these circumstances
You've changed me more than you could ever know
So we will just hang on until tomorrow
So take my hand
Don't ever let me go

    General CommentThis is Allister's best song by far. It has so much meaning. It doesn't have to just be about ex-girlfriends. Leave out the line about no time left for second chances, and to me it's about two people who go together so great but face bad circumstances. But any way you look at it, it's still an awesome song.
