When Push Comes to Shove feat. Dutch Rebelle -

Verse 1 (Akrobatik)

Listen, lately I’ve been deliberating
Previous worries we need to be eliminating
Forget the past girl I’m about elevating
That’s why tonight when you get home, I’ll have your dinner waiting
Move your body girl the way you do is innovating
Heat up the place with the grace that you’re demonstrating
When we’re close it feels like our bodies levitating
Queen - forget about those other men and women hating
They only see an emcee, so they discriminating
They’re unaware to how you give my spirit ventilation
And it’s a bond that goes beyond just penetration
And it feels like a brother’s been forever waiting
Forget the past, baby, I’m about elevating
And the rush from doing us so scintillating
I know you’re feeling the fantasy that we’re facilitating
Girl - it’s exhilarating - this is not no pillow faking
But it’s invigorating when I see your figure shaking
Glad you chose me, I know it’s plenty ..... waiting
For me to fuck up and do something incriminating
And watch what we’ve got begin disintegrating
But all we’ve got to do is execute a bit of patience
And manifest infinity like we’re figure eighting figure skating
We both know there’s something bigger waiting
What’s up baby? It’s time for reconfigurating - let’s go

(Chorus by Dutch ReBelle)

As we both grew - became one from two
Ups and the downs that we've survived through
Let me tell you something that you already knew
When push comes to shove, I’m down for you

When push comes to shove I’m down for you
When push comes to shove, I’m down for you
Been a little while, not trying to hold you
But when push comes to shove, I’m down

Verse 2 (Mr. Lif)

I was standing there admiring your presentation
Wanted to talk but I was caught in hesitation
Speculation on a future with no limitation
Calculating how to spark a little conversation
We only miss whatever chances we have never taken
A little lesson that I've learned throughout my maturation
So I step to you, it's quickening my respiration
And we both spoke with elegant articulation
It wasn't conversation baby it was aviation
I welcome you into my life so here's an invitation
Let me tell you about these walls that I'm forever scaling
and these goals I hope to reach, but they're intimidating
We are the real thing lady, never imitation
But we're living in a world that is forever changing
Expectations have a way of leading us astray
I know
Yeah, sometimes it can be aggravating
But the very thought of losing you is devastating
Let's reassess the stress that we're delegating
Have I told you what I've got with you's my inspiration
And my heart race whenever there's a complication
Maybe it's time now for self evaluation
And a true vacation
Pick a destination
Making way for epiphanies and revelations
Take it back to the feeling when we started dating
Let's go
