Issues – Princeton Ave lyrics

[Intro: Michael Bohn]
It's time for a change
This generation, this generation needs a hero

[Chorus: Tyler Carter; Michael Bohn]
What is a man who lays a hand on his lover
And calls it tough love, tough love?
What is a man who can't take a stand for his daughter
And calls it tough love, tough love?
Your roots grow in the cracks of the alleys
College park made you
Man enough to see, man enough to see there ain't a goddamn man in me

[Verse 1: Michael Bohn]
Take me back to a date
Before I was hostile and learned to hate
(You promised you would never become)
You promised you would never become
A storm, a blackout replicating the one
The thunder inside him became your life
You called him your best friend 'till the day you were nine

[Chorus: Tyler Carter; Michael Bohn]
What is a man who lays a hand on his lover
And calls it tough love, tough love?
What is a man who can't take a stand for his daughter
And calls it tough love, tough love?
Your roots grow in the cracks of the alleys
College park made you
Man enough to see, man enough to see there ain't a goddamn man in me

[Verse 2: Michael Bohn]
Hotel rooms, bourbon, and broads
A drifter living life, without God
You've done it now, you planted a seed
Now the storm inside you, it swallows her

[Breakdown: Tyler Carter; Michael Bohn]
Baby love, alright
And I know life can be so strange
But I know I can make a change
I'm gonna wipe away the clouds for ya
I'm gonna be around for ya
I'm gonna paint the town for ya
I'm gonna make a promise to
Give you everything you want and need
But she fucked up now
'Cause she's bearing another mouth you can't feed
Cease production of a destructive breed
Seek help cause your pride only makes you weak

[Chorus: Tyler Carter; Michael Bohn]
And what is a man who lays a hand on his lover
And calls it tough love, tough love?
What is a man who can't take a stand for his daughter
And calls it tough love, tough love?
Your roots grow in the cracks of the alleys
College park made you
Man enough to see, man enough to see there ain't a goddamn man in me
