Setting Sun

Feat. Ev Jones

IntroThe Tongue, Ev Jones

Ay, ay
Oh, oh, oh
Ay, mmm
Oh
Thing about love is [Ooh, ay
It’s a game of chances [Uh-huh
That’s why I don’t place no bets [Ooh
Uh, I got a question
Check, check [Listen, baby]

ChorusEv Jones

Before you go

How many bags you got
I only brought one
Before you go

We’ll be down like the
Setting sun

Verse 1The Tongue

You were shinin’ like a diamond
Lookin’ like a million bucks lyin’ on an island
You smile for my camera
You’d look so sweet on the tongue, had to have ya
Before, that was after
But now that I seen you, there’s no goin’ back, nah
To the days where I let it slip away
Still don’t know, crime don’t pay
I’m soft when I speak and rough when we play
Beatin’ up the beats like all damn day
Then chillin’ when we lay, put your hair in a braid
Put your mind in the space where the shade never strays
But first you gotta know my heart
You should ask my body, because my mind is art
If you picture perfect, don’t judge the book
You were blind to my love, but it’s worth a look, c’mon

ChorusEv Jones

Before you go

How many bags you got
I only brought one
Before you go

We’ll be down like the
Setting sun
Before you go

Give you a chance but you will
Only get one
Before you go

We’ll be down like the
Setting sun

Verse 2The Tongue

Check, check, check
Check, or we could be down
This could be us, reach for the stars
Now I’m linin’ ‘em up, it’s a stairway to heaven
Only God knows
How far I’d fell if I heard you say no
So if you say yes, know you’ll be blessed
My hand on the zipper that runs up the back of your dress
Then a whisper, a kiss, a goosebump on your neck
You shiverin’, wonderin’ ‘bout what could be next
These are the thoughts that I had to confess
When I spot a queen, I don’t shuffle the deck
Can see that you’re special, the vision’s divine
But can’t give you nothin’ ‘til I get your time
Feels like I’m losin’ my mind
When I’m waitin’ for answers that never arrive
We could run with it or you could walk by
But know that I gave you a chance to come get in my life
Don’t blow it

ChorusEv Jones


Before you go [Before you go

How many bags you got [I’m
I only brought one [I’m, I’m
Before you go

We’ll be down like the setting sun [Like the setting sun
Before you go [Before you go
[Before you go
Give you a chance but you will [You
Only get one [You, you
Before you go [Before you go

We’ll be down like the setting sun

OutroThe Tongue & Ev Jones

Oh, we gon’ get slowed down, girl
Our feet won’t touch the ground, now
How we gon’ find our way home
When mornin’ comes around?
Oh, we gon’ get slowed down, girl
Our feet won’t touch the ground, now
How we gon’ find our way home
When mornin’ comes around?
Oh, we gon’ get slowed down, girl
Our feet won’t touch the ground, now
How we gon’ find our way home
When mornin’ comes around?
