Love’s Trail Mix is Lyric’s second official release and she came up with the title as a way to paint the picture of how multi-faceted love is. Lyric states “love can be complicated, happy, confused, beautiful, angry, disappointing and magical all at the same time. Trail Mix has a lot of different flavors and textures—but it is still an appealing snack.” Love’s Trail Mix tells stories of love from various perspectives, but it is short and sweet and parallels the “Trail Mix” metaphor.

Track Name: Tall feat. Daniel "SkyHigh" McClain
Verse 1: All his life it was like his was in the clouds
The world as monopoly pieces, homie was looking down
never standing in the front, blocking the crowd
skinny during puberty, ha look at him now
Track Name: Magnetic
(Hook x2)
Just a touch of love, a lil' bit
Just a touch of you...

I'm zoned out at the edge of the stage
I see you in the back, steady tryna remember ya name
Those the same green eyes that I recall
When I had the microphone here last fall
So a full four seasons, nothing sweet when you sleep
For no reason, spit the last bar and barely still breathin'
Blink twice, I'm not believin', you in the crowd, it's gettin' loud
The people leavin' , I look around, don't see you
After the pics with fans, still don't see you
PEACE to my band, they talkin' bout waffle-house and after hour plans
While this strange coincidence. I'm tryna comprehend
Collected my dividends, scan the 5-2-9 right before they expand
Upon my exit, a black Coupe pulled in front the venue
A dark tint, turn to green eyes with a side smile on the menu
Even remember the time, was ten past two
Before I knew it, I was chillin' in the passenger
That ill magnetic, the law of attraction first

(Hook x2)
Just a touch of love, a lil' bit
Just a touch of you...

You was a gentleman, drove me to my car right around the block
At Glennwood and Joseph behind the crosswalk
You park, I start to to grin cause you was nervous
And curious, cause shit, you could work for secret service
"So why you followin' me" I asked, homie laughed
"You a artist, baby, all yo shows are on blast"
I chuckled, we both knew that it was different
Same as before, I felt my heart beat shiftin'
When I used to hear that in songs, it sounded corny
But when it's real, it make you crazy till the next mornin'
Now we sittin' here, adornin', gettin' overwhelmed
A little horny, you say till Christmas you'll be still tourin'
I locked the math in this time, you did the same
then reassured me quality time when you return
Gave me a forehead kiss and made my whole body yearn

(Hook x2)
Just a touch of love, a lil' bit
Just a touch of you...
Track Name: Off Limits
v1. Now Recently my mind been hitting rewind to when I met you
I remember your eyes your smile, shit and how your lips moved
To the city of angels I was brand new,
mutual friends, us meeting was inevitable
Before then we heard about each each other
You just had a baby girl and married her mother
Coveted family man, the ultimate lover
Was lusting undercover
Would see you with your wife and knew for sure you loved her
I saw you pretty often at shows
Long talks on the side on music industry woes
You'd school me on fake friends and snakes
Made me aware, nothing deep that all it takes
At first you were just a cute face
Then I noticed a new feeling whenever we'd embrace
Would step back in a different space
Dude made heart beat a different pace
and now my thoughts of him is out of place, wait

Can't control these thought of you and I
I'm think about bout you day & night
Self control's so hard I don't know why
Ya off limits but is seems so right

v2. Maybe it's my earning for affection
Maybe cuz he noticed things and paid me attention
He calls me beautiful and gorgeous every time he sees me
The last kiss on the neck makes resistance far from easy
The flirting grew to teasing
But then he'll disappear
Never continued past the venues
We tried to stay clear
no sexting no phone calls
Cuz he's a married man
But damn
I'm tryna make this fire die down the best I can
Told myself its my imagination
Tryna resist temptation
Of being aggressive but shit I'm not a home wrecker
But then one night you put your feelings on record
I Went from unsure to very clear in a second
Told me your lust for my body in text message
If alone we'da crossed lines no question
They say outta sight outta mind
I guess i'll see you the next lifetime


v3. Still in denial, while my mind’s creating movie scenes
Us both saying fuck it and disregarding integrity
At this point it's just really me
Cuz you're not doing anything really
Cuz you're not leading me on, or playing Shamar on motives
Just attraction, thats it, we both know it
Not like I expect you to leave it all and blow it
You love your wife and kids, and not afraid to show it
Like I said, I should be able to forget about you
I do for a week or two, then I gotta be around you
Sometimes I end up where you are on purpose Just to make butterflies resurface Everything about you are is perfect But naw, the naughty thoughts just aint worth it Living a lie and shit you aint mine? a mind circus I want exclusive, that what money cant purchase till then I fantasize i thru these 3 verses


Boy you know I'm off limits
Boy I know you're off limits
Boy we know we're off limits
we both know we're off limits, limits
