about

Stretch marks. My first album. I decided to name it Stretch Marks because the thing is, few things in life are sexy or pretty… Life is beautiful, not pretty. What makes it worth living are the heartaches, the triumphs, the losses, the wins. Those things that stretch us, push us beyond our limits, spark the fire in us to want to be better, stronger, wiser, to spread our wings and fly.. That’s what makes life… well, life.

In the two years that this album chronicles, I was stretched, torn apart, put together again in more ways than I care to admit… I love it because it’s real, it’s my life and all the painful growth I’ve experienced. And the only way I could deal with it all was to put it in song. Not everything in here is PC, buttery, flowery, but everything is real: real love, friendship, hurt, loss, frustrations. I hope that through “Stretch Marks” you can discover that there is beauty in imperfection. And learn to embrace it. As I have… :)

ROBBED


Woke up this morning feeling on cloud nine
Til I saw that you left in the middle of the night
You told me you wanted to be my man
But to you this was just a one night stand
How could I be so blind as not to see straight through your lies
I guess I should get up and move on but this just feels so wrong

Cause I was feeling you
Thought you were feeling me too
Could swear we had a thing that was more than a fling
But all you had in mind was to use cheap pickup lines
To rob me blind of my love and affection and leave nothing behind

I picked up the phone and dialed your number
Even though I knew you wouldn't answer
I'm really not trying to change your mind
Just wanted to say you're the worst kind of swine
I bet you think I'll stay sad and blue
But I'll get over you
Don't you worry cause what goes around comes around eventually

Cause I was feeling you
Thought you were feeling me too
Could swear we had a thing that was more than a fling
But all you had in mind was to use cheap pickup lines
To rob me blind of my love and affection and leave nothing behind

I can't believe it
To think that I would
Fall for your mess
If you've ever been wronged by a man say "oh oh oh"

Cause I was feeling you
Thought you were feeling me too
Could swear we had a thing that was more than a fling
But all you had in mind was to use cheap pickup lines
To rob me blind of my love and affection and leave nothing behind

LYRICS BY SU CHARLES AKA SUCH - BMI
(C) 2012 SUCH, ARC SAI PUBLISHING, LLC

I like you
You're so cool
You're so fly
I'm always trying to catch your eye
You give me butterflies
I can't deny
I wanna be there right by your side

You enter a room
And everyone's aware that you're there
You're so unassuming
But yet
you exude quiet confidence
You know who you are
You're my own superstar
Near or far
I've gotta be right where you are

I really dig your style
The way you dress, the way you walk, the way you talk
You're so full of life
And to top it all you're sharp as a tack
I wanna get to know you
But How do I tell you
without looking like a fool
that I'm so into you

(How is it possible,
that you're so beautiful)
You're one of a kind
Like a rare type of wine
(This isn't typical
But it feels so natural)
Let's go on a date and test the hands of fate
Track Name: Innocence Lost (La La Song)
LYRICS BY SUCH, BMI SONGWRITER
PERFORMED BY SUCH

She's 15 and knocked up by a good for nothing
20 year old guy with no job
He's gonna get locked up
Leaving her to raise the kid all alone
No life isn't over but it just got a lot harder
For such a young flower to not quickly wither
How will things get any better when her own mother and father say abortion is the answer?
When did kids stop being kids
When did they start seeing things that made them lose their innocence
When did they start Being in places they shouldn't be doing things they shouldn't do

They should be singing with me
La La La La La

He's a 12 yr old drug mule
He knows this game is deadly but it's his only tool
Against the street corner debt collector
He's young but he's his family's only protector
Mom is working three jobs; still cant make ends meet
She's stressed out; gets high seven days a week
he's trapped, surrounded lonely, In this tunnel with no end in sight
Wondering when he'll see the light
When did kids stop being kids
When did they start seeing things that made them lose their innocence
When did they start Being in places they shouldn't be doing things they shouldn't do

They should be singing with me
La La La La La

Children are the hope of this nation and we may be their only salvation
Books should be their education instead of them being taught by the Television
To join blue or red assassin creeds, become creatures of instinct
Fightin' on the street, grand auto thieves
Their lives lived in secret 'til they wash up dead on Jersey's shore, never knowing they were worth much more
When did kids stop being kids
When did they start seeing things that made them lose their innocence
When did they start Being in places they shouldn't be doing things they shouldn't do
