"Evelyn" as written by and Marty James Garton....
I want you all to celebrate
I had to shed my beat up skin
I've been waiting for this day
I choose my weapon and begin
I had to get out of here for my Evelyn
(My Evelyn)

Seems like forever
(Uh huh)
I've been struggling with rhymes
I can't pretend that it don't affect me

Check me in the darkest pitch of night
Ooh, it keeps me up, I say my goodbye
I can't guess how many
(No, no, no)
Will claim that they knew me so well

Seems like I've been here
Stayed here, right here
But there's no way for me to tell
Ooh, I heard the familiar word, my goodbye

I want you all to have a drink
It was nothing that you said
I had all kinds of time to think
My heart convinced my empty head
I had to get out of here for my Evelyn
(My Evelyn)

Can't live my life as a blurry mirage
Thought barrage made my head a psychological garage
And she's out there, I love her to death
The deepest breath ain't deep enough
To see the thoughts that she can put in my head
Mental exposure, things I said, at 2 am, I know it's over

I know my brother loved his homie Ben
So your turn, man, this I let you flow on one more beat
I make it shine and I'll see you when I live on your street
This is my path now, I had to split town and do it fast now

I passed out and woke up with a whole new rationale
I kept it to myself, you couldn't accept it
So I left it alone and let it roll on my records
These are the airwaves of Evelyn

See, everything ends, it just takes a little longer
Don't forget I'm your friend
And I'll remember everything live, I'm no pretender
I know she's getting every single message that I send her

I want you all to celebrate
I had to shed my beat up skin
I've been waiting for this day
I choose my weapon and begin
I had to get out of here for my Evelyn
(My Evelyn)

It seems like forever
(Ooh, ooh, ooh)
I've had trouble on my soul
I made a promise this time to let my words speak
Let them take control
Ooh, I don't want to starve no more, my goodbye

I want you all to have a drink
It was nothing that you said
I had all kinds of time to think
My heart convinced my empty head
I had to get out of here for my Evelyn
(My Evelyn)

We will not forget
We will not forget
