Badlees — 90% Of The Time lyrics

(Naydock)

Ten times I stopped by
'Cause she said to stop by
Nine times we flowed
Like good rhythm and rhyme
I was a good ear
A welcome companion
90% of the time

She was from Baltimore
Recent divorcée
From a man who found fortune
In pool installation
And you could get close
In a way she could manage
But never encounter the breadth of her station

'Cause she couldn't ever
Betray independence
Her independence was a personal sign
This is for someone who let me inside
90% of the time

She worked the counter
Down at second street video
She'd rent releases
She could empathize watching
Woman would triumph
Assimilation
That she felt good was the thing

Yeah, no time for sympathy
Or mock conventions
No chance to leave personal items behind
I was a witness
She let scratch the surface
90% of the time

'Cause she couldn't ever
Betray independence
Her independence was a personal sign
This is for someone who let me inside
90% of the time

Tenth time around
It came unexpected
Though I'd play scenarios
For a week till that day
I had felt something
She said she felt the same thing
And we knew that that wouldn't play


Well, maybe she lied
And maybe she had to
'Cause maybe I'd found
What I hadn't yet seen
But there in the doorway
The moment had brought us
To a place she rarely had been

'Cause she couldn't ever
Betray independence
Her independence was a personal sign
This is for someone who let me inside
90% of the time
