I’ve come to realize no matter how I try You can’t be satisfied. Because we’re miles apart and your broken heart Can’t be fixed overnight And when its said and done and our race is won I know I’ll be alright Without the drama you bring to my life And when it all falls down and I can’t be found You’ll wonder who’s to blame But when we point the finger hurt still lingers And it don’t ease the pain So just remember this, my last words of wisdom Unless you make a change You’ll find that your results remain the same And though we’re always off and on We both know the spark is gone So I’ll take the first step towards my moving on And say my last goodbye… And though I can't deny the way I feel inside makes me not want to leave the longer that it takes for me to walk away the harder it will be So we must face our fears and wipe away the tears and know eventually that this will be a distant memory And despite temptation, all communication Must come to an end ‘Cause when I hear your voice, my heart has no choice But to start up again And it’s a matter of fact, for us there’s no going back Because we’ve reached the end and there’s no point in us remaining friends What we want, we didn’t get But what we got was for the best So I’ll take all that was good and leave the rest And say my last goodbye

Just come with me And you will see that we will be All alone in our own fantasy Take my hand in this land I’ll show you how to Dream again And see this world through a new lens You will find there’s no time to pretend Because with you all dreams come true Yes they do, let’s pursue This fantasy for two In your darkest hour I’ll be here for you. There’s no need to fear, surely every tear will disappear Winter, spring, or summer I won’t let you fall; A love like ours can conquer it all. There is no valley low or mountain tall could possibly keep me from your call I’ll bear it all to be by your side loving you constantly. Place your hand in mine, hold on tight, close your eyes, prepare to fly This experience will be a dream to dream a sight to see, if you believe we can do anything. Bring your heart, free your mind, as we depart, leave all of your worries behind. I promise that you won’t regret it. Ready, set, and here we go. Feel free to take it slow ‘cause we cannot grow old Long as we’re together. Time can pass us by, despite the weather I believe a love as strong as ours will never die. Open up your eyes. Take a look and see it, and breathe it, reach out and touch, believe it. All this and more that you wish for be sure you will receive it. As the light of dawn arrives when night moves on all darkness will be Gone. And you’ll be the one; The first and the last for me. The only one I’ll ever need If there should be something that would ever try to defeat or to deny happiness that’s meant for you and I I’ll never let it through. I would fight¬ and die for you Give my life, its true All this because I’m in love with you I want to make you happy and if you are satisfied with our life then so am I. I anticipate ‘cause I can’t wait to see just what the future brings, New melodies to play and songs to sing. Devine energy will be flowing We’ll keep growing, Clearly showing, Feeling, knowing We’re in love And it’s everlasting. And as we journey toward eternity Always look ahead, feel the present moment, and remember the beginning Recognize the love that’s guiding whatever we do Anywhere that we go Remaining true We’ll never know Impossible Conquer the world together we will live forever In a fantasy for two.

If you ask the question Just say what’s on your mind And in time you will find the answer Life will be divine. There’s a hidden lesson In every life mistake that we make so locate the reason and you’ll find the rhyme Now don’t let this moment slip away Just say the things that your heart longs to say Don’t be afraid Decisions must be made so get up and seize the day With no hesitation Take up the pursuit of the truth That lies deep within you And you’ll be just fine
7.
There are times when I see you When I feel you drawing near In those moments I’m reminded of the way things were When you were here With each tear there is comfort For I understand you’re still in my mind With each thought of you I’ll find my way through Through the darkness into the light Though you may not be here in the physical Though you may have passed away I know that you can never really die If I keep you alive in my memory Everyday Gone away is my sorrow For tomorrow is a brand new day When the sun shines That’s when I’ll find I can feel you in a brand new way

‘Cuz I’m In Love with You I’ll be there when you call Support you off balance Catch you should you fall Every trial, every challenge, I’ll be there through it all There’s no problem that’s too great that we can’t solve… 'Cuz I'm In Love With You I’ve seen things I’ve never known I’ve seen my reflection that your love’s mirror has shown I will strive for perfection For your sake and my own As the time passes by you will find that we have grown… ‘Cuz I’m In Love With You ‘Cuz I’m in Love with you… Life will never be the same You’ve shown me new horizons How to undo years of pain Your voice has been my sunlight It evaporates the rain Makes my heart melt just to hear you speak my name… ‘Cuz I’m In Love With You I understand certain things The comfort of your presence the happiness it brings the feel of your essence causes my soul to sing all my fears disappear when you’re here let freedom ring… ‘Cuz I’m in love with you… I see possibilities I love all that you are And all that you can be There’s no limit to how far We may go on this journey Every step that we take we will make it faithfully… ‘Cuz I’m in love with you When my life is in review I’ll look back on what we had And see how we made it through And I will feel no sadness because All along I knew That with God on our side there is nothing we can’t do ‘Cuz I’m In Love With You… …’Cuz I’m in love with you.

Baby just tell me what to do so I can please you I want you to know how I feel Baby just tell me what to do and I won’t tease you I’ll do anything to show you this love is real Better believe that you’ll receive everything I have been designed to give you soon I’m in love with you If you’ve ever felt it otherwise you’ll be corrected tenderly tonight. So just close your eyes and baby listen close No feeling low down and blue I never knew a woman could make me do so many of the things that I would do Until I met you Praising the day you came and you traveled past my way And I’ll do anything on this earth if it guarantees that you will stay Giving immeasurable pleasure ev’ry little possible way So when its time let me inside and then you’ll find You’ll never be denied and never be left unsatisfied I’ll treat you right for life ev’ry night and ev’ry day. -1st Chorus When lights are turned down low No place for us to go We’re taking our time Moving so slow You’re standing here we See everything clearly Embracing this moment without fear Comfortable silence fills our ears making it clear why we are here gravity seems to draw us near How can we resist this temptation? It’s time to embrace it This lovely feeling that invades our atmosphere -2nd chorus Confess your deepest wishes The truth is sure to set you free Open your senses For what I provide you’ll need all five in their totality Starting it out by traveling slow Down from head to toe Exploring without haste your ev’ry trace and ev’ry place there is to go Temperatures rising But there’s a whole lot more Left in store As I explore Yes you can be sure That the very best is yet to come When I am done Heat will compete with the sun -3rd Chorus Try to be patient With all the I’m taking Making ev’ry touch a serenade Kissing your tension away Climbing the heights to find your ultimate source of pleasure With ev’ry breath you take you’re giving it all away Elevating heart is racing with speed Say what you need I hold the key To unlock your passion Taking appropriate action For your satisfaction Guaranteed, It’s gonna be, a sight to see, for you and me, physically -4th Chorus Baby, baby say exactly how you’re feeling I’ll be sure to give you just what you need Feels so right you cannot fight this energy that we’re building And I will take it, escalate it, make it difficult if you should try to speak So just scream out We’ll zip it, we will dip it We will rip it, we will tip it We will flip it, we will whip it We will ride and glide and be so satisfied The trip will be so very fine Riding on my rocket 69 So get ready for the ignition We’re gonna discover inner space Continue climbing higher Flame burns brighter -5th Chorus Grip it tighter Fuel the internal fire Ride the ride so deep inside its sure to blow your mind As I turn up the heat Feels so good I know it makes you wanna scream my name And I can feel your body shake Making no mistake I’m prepared to give and take you to another place Beyond comprehension And just in case I failed to mention I’ll take your breath your away all through the night until the day

Your Smile 04:11
A breath of heaven finds its way into my heart each time you smile Reintroducing new sensations I have not felt for a while My heart is racing, pacing my imagination’s running wild Anxiously waiting for the presence of your smile Just like a dream you came to me Gave me your love and set me free. I know that we were meant to be Was blind but now I see! Infatuation, elevation, takes me to another height Out of the darkness for your love showed me the light Sweet revelation One summer morning When without warning You came my way Knowing there was nothing I could Do to prepare For all the beauty that surrounded me was truly quite astounding and I knew That I would ne¬ver be able to stand a chance against the magic that you weave as you can see I’m offering no resistance. Surrender all of my control, with heart and mind, and body, soul where love will lead I’ll be sure to follow Away with the same old, same old every day I now can say And how I welcome in all the lovely new sensations that are now beginning to come my way I realize from gray skies I’ve arrived Stepped into the light forever shining bright and I’m feeling so alive. As soon as the night descends the day will end and I’m pretending to hide all my excitement because I can’t wait, to awake, every day knowing that every single time Only the thought of seeing you is on my mind. My single desire is to be right be your side and I’m so happy that I’ve finally made you mine Together we’re sure to keep on moving higher No matter what the weather just as sure as you smile The sun will shine.

As we wait for the dawn to appear Our silence will speak for our love The life we lived in the course of a year Could rival heaven above Before the sun begins to rise Take a breath and close your eyes And I’ll stay Through the darkness of the night I’ll be like the light of day ‘Til the morning comes When the rain Falls out of the sky I will help you find your way Till you see the sun again. While I understand that the hand we were dealt Was less than we hoped to receive The time we had, the love that we felt Was more than enough for me. If your happiness should fade I’ll never be too far away And I’ll stay Through the darkness of the night I’ll be like the light of day ‘Til the morning comes When the rain Falls out of the sky I will help you find your way Till you see the sun again.

Hope 06:36
A voice cuts through the night Telling you things will be alright So don’t give up the fight Open your eyes you will find you are never alone Searching for inner peace Hop to achieve that sweet release So all your troubles cease Look deep inside and you’ll find you are never alone Even the darkest of all nights Could never hide a spark of light Pray for better days Take a leap of faith Live your life As night time turns to day You feel your problems fade away So it will be okay Open your eyes you will find you were never alone

about

THINGS TO COME is the debut album of Milton Suggs as a leader. As such, it is a representation of just a small fraction of the relatively few experiences, lessons learned, and people encountered in life thus far.

THINGS TO COME also represents some of the directions that you can expect to see Milton take musically in the future. Included in this album are mostly original compositions of various styles. However, it also contains arrangements of standards such as ‘ROUND MIDNIGHT; songs of relevance to American and African-American history such as WE SHALL OVERCOME and LIFT EVERY VOICE AND SING; and jazz standards with original lyrics and vocalese in the tradition of giants like Eddie Jefferson and Jon Hendricks; tunes such as YOUR SMILE, which includes original lyrics to a Charlie Parker solo on Ray Noble’s CHEROKEE, and FANTASY FOR TWO (based on Cedar Walton’s UGETSU).

With an eclectic blend of various elements, this album is accessible to the many different types of listeners out there.
