Lyrics

YOU GIVE GOOD LOVE

I found out what I've been missing
Always on the run
I've been looking for someone

Now you're here like you've been before
And you know just what I need
It took some time for me to see

Chorus:

That you give good love to me baby
So good, take this heart mine into your hands
You give good love to me
Never too much
Baby you give good love

Never stopping, I was always searching
For that perfect love
The kind that girls like me dream of

Now you're here like you've been before
And you know just what I need
It took some time for me to see

Chorus

Now I, I can't stop looking around
It's not, what this loves all about
Our love is here to stay, stay

Chorus


THINKING ABOUT YOU

I can't get you off my mind
No matter what I do
I'm wishing you were here, with me
It makes no difference
I only think of you
And I living out my fantasy

Midnight, I run to you
Being such a love sick fool
It might be pouring rain
Still the same, nothings changed
All and all I feel no shame
I'm just your fool insane
(I'm just your fool)

Chorus:

I keep thinking about you baby
So tell me what you're gonna do
I thinking about you
All I wanna do is

Like a river of wine, intoxicate my mind
I'm thinking about you
That's what I wanna do
Pick me up, let's go down
I'm thinking about it too
I'm thinking about you
Ya got me thinking about you
I'm thinking about it too

Make believing is a game
That's not for me to play
Don't you need me just like I need you
Just like I need you
There's no reason
Just my heart that makes me feel this way
And I hope you feel the same way too

Midnight, I run to you
Being such a love sick fool
It might be pouring rain
Still the same, nothings changed
All and all I feel no shame
I'm just your fool insane
(I'm just your fool)

Chorus

Like a river of wine, intoxicate my mind
I'm thinking about you
That's what I wanna do
Pick me up, let's go down
I'm thinking about it too (yea, yea. yea, yea, yea, yea, yea, yea, yea, yeah)
I'm thinking about you
Got me thinking about you
I'm thinking about it too

It might be pouring in the rain
But like a fool insane
I run I run I run I run to you
I'm just a lovesick fool
I've got this thing for you
I'm just a I'm just a love sick fool

I'm just a fool oh

Chorus

Like a river of wine, intoxicate my mind
I'm thinking about you
That's what I wanna do
Pick me up, let's go down
I'm thinking about it too (yea, yea. yea, yea, yea, yea, yea, yea, yea, yeah)
I'm thinking about you
Got me thinking about you
I'm thinking about it too


SOMEONE FOR ME

Someone for me
Someone for me

I'm here alone on a Friday night
Waiting here beside the phone
The TV, radio and me
Really ain't been getting along
I wish that I could find a way
And party to the break of day
And there I'd be sure to meet
The guy that would be special to me
Then mama comes and asks me
Why I am dreaming sitting alone
Why not go out and have some fun
It's the only way I'll ever find
Someone for me
While I am young and seventeen

Chorus:

Someone for me
someone for me
I've got to find someone, someone
Someone for me
I've got to find someone, Yeah!

Now there's a party down at Angie's house
With people packed against the walls
I'm sitting in a corner here
Trying to make sense of it all

And when I least expect it
Meeting the guy I see in my dreams
Here he is walking up to me and asking
If I'd like to come and dance with him
I think I found someone for me

Chorus

I need somebody for me
I need somebody for me, someone

And so I'm finding out that dreams you believe in
Can come to be
And now I'm looking up to find the joy and happiness
Can come to you and me
I actually found someone for me

Someone for me
I need somebody for me
I need somebody for me, Someone
Someone for me, Someone for me, Someone
Someone, Someone, Someone, Someone, Someone, Someone for me
Someone one for me
Somebody, Somebody, Somebody, Somebody

Yeah, Yeah

Oh I need somebody for me
I need somebody for me, Somone

Someone for me
Someone for me
Someone, Someone, Somebody, Someone, Somebody, Someone, Somebody for me

Someone, Somebody, Someone for me


SAVING ALL MY LOVE FOR YOU

A few stolen moments is all that we share
You've got your family, and they need you there
Though I try to resist, being last on your list
But no other man's gonna do
So I'm saving all my love for you

It's not very easy, living all alone
My friends try and tell me, find a man of my own
But each time I try, I just break down and cry
'Cause I'd rather be home feeling blue
So I'm savin' all my love for you

You used to tell me we'd run away together
Love gives you the right to be free
You said be patient, just wait a little longer
But that's just an old fantasy

I've got to get ready, just a few minutes more
Gonna get that old feeling when you walk through that door
'Cause tonight is the night, for feeling alright
We'll be making love the whole night through
So I'm saving all my love
Yeah I'm saving all my love
Yes I'm saving all my love for you

A few minutes more 'til you walk through the door
No other woman, is gonna love you more
'Cause tonight is the night, that I'm feeling alright
We'll be making love the whole night through
So I'm saving all my love
Yeah I'm saving all my love
Yes I'm saving all my love for you
For you, for you


NOBODY LOVES ME LIKE YOU DO

Like a candle burning bright
Love is glowing in your eyes
A flame to light our way
That burns brighter everyday
Now I have you
Nobody loves me like you do

Like a leaf upon the wind
I could find no place to land
I dreamed the hours away
And wondered everyday
Do dreams come true
Nobody loves me like you do

What if I'd never met you
Where would I be right now
Funny how life just falls in place somehow
You've touched my heart in places
That I never even knew
Nobody loves me like you do

I was words without a tune
I was a song still unsung
A poem with no rhyme
A dancer out of time
But now there's you
And nobody loves me like you do

What if I'd never met you
Where would I be right now
Funny how life just falls in place somehow
You've touched my heart in places
That I never even knew
Nobody loves me
Nobody loves me
Nobody loves me like you do
Nobody loves me like you do


HOW WILL I KNOW

There's a boy I know
He's the one I dream of
Looks into my eyes
Takes me to the stars above
Oh I lose control
Can't seem to get enough
When I wake from dreaming
Tell me is it really love

How will I know
Girl trust your feelings
How will I know
How will I know
Love can be deceiving
How will I know

Chorus:

How will I know if he really loves me
I say a prayer with every heart beat
I fall in love whenever we meet
I'm asking you what you know about these things
How will I know if he's thinking of me
I try to phone but I'm too shy - can't speak
Falling in love is so bitter sweet
This love is strong why do I feel weak

Oh, wake me, I'm shaking
Wish I had you near me now
Said there's no mistaking
What I feel is really love

How will I know
Girl trust your feelings
How will I know
How will I know
Love can be deceiving
How will I know

Chorus

If he loves me, if he loves me not
He loves me, if he loves me not
He loves me, if he loves me not
Oh how will I know

Chorus


ALL AT ONCE

All at once
I finally took a moment and I'm realizing that
Your not coming back
And it finally hit me
All at once

All at once
I started counting teardrops and at least a million fell
My eyes began to swell
And all my dreams were shattered
All at once

Ever since I met you
You're the only love I've known
And I can't forget you
So I must face it all alone

Chorus:

All at once
I'm drifting on a lonely sea
Wishing you'd come back to me
And that's all that matters now
All at once
I'm drifting on a lonely sea
Holding on to memories
And it hurts me more than you know
So much more than it shows
All at once

All at once
I looked around and found that you were with another love
In someone else's arms
And all my dreams were shattered
All at once

All at once
The smile that used to greet me brightened someone else's day
She took your smile away
And left me with just memories
All at once

Ever since I met you
You're the only love I've known
And I can't forget you
So I must face it all alone

Chorus


TAKE GOOD CARE OF MY HEART

Time can pass so slowly
when you feel so all alone
Love can strike like lightning
When you find your heart a home
I've seen it in the movies, read about it in a book
I've never feel it, but your touch was all it took

Chorus:

Take good care of my heart
Take good care of my heart
Baby you're the first to take it
You're the only one who can break it
I love you more than I should
But it keeps me feeling so good
I've waited for your love for ever
You're the one to take good care of my heart

Come and make your magic
Til you have me hypnotized
If we get any closer
I'll be drowning in your eyes
You're the one I needed most when my love was on the line
I'm so glad you gave me yours, when I gave you mine

Chorus

[Instrumental]

Chorus


GREATEST LOVE OF ALL

I believe that children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be

Everybody searching for a hero
People need someone to look up to
I never found anyone to fulfill my needs
A lonely place to be
So I learned to depend on me

I decided long ago
Never to walk in anyone's shadows
If I fail, if I succeed
At least I will live as I believe
No matter what they take from me
They can't take away my dignity

Chorus:

Because the greatest love of all
Is happening to me
I found the greatest love of all
Inside of me
The greatest love of all
Is easy to achieve
Learning to love yourself
It is the greatest love of all

I believe the children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be

And I decided long ago
Never to walk in anyone's shadows
If I fail, if I succeed
At least I will live as I believe
No matter what they take from me
They can't take away my dignity

Chorus

And if by chance, that special place
That you've been dreaming of
Leads you to a lonely place
Find your strength in love


HOLD ME

I'll hold you, and touch you
And make you my woman
I'll give you my love
With sweet surrender
Tonight our hearts will beat as one
And I will hold you and touch you
And make you my woman tonight

There's something in your eyes I see
A pure and simple honesty

Chorus:

Hold me in your arms tonight
Fill my life with pleasure
Let's not waste this precious time
This moment's ours to treasure

Hold me in your arms tonight
We'll make it last forever
When the morning sun appears
We'll find our way together

I believe you
When you say that you love me
Know that
I won't take you for granted
Tonight the magic has begun
So won't you hold me
Touch me
Make me your woman tonight

There's something in your eyes I see
I won't betray your trust in me

Chorus

Hold me in your arms tonight
We'll make it last forever
When the morning sun appears
We'll find our way together


I WANNA DANCE WITH SOMEBODY (WHO LOVES ME)

Clock strikes upon the hour
And the sun begins to fade
Still enough time to figure out
How to chase my blues away
I've done alright up to now
It's the light of day that shows me how
And when the night falls, loneliness calls

Chorus:

Oh wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat with somebody
Yeah wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves me
Oh wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat with somebody
Yeah wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves me

I've been in love and lost my senses
Spinning through the town
Sooner or later the fever ends
And I wind up feeling down
I need a man who'll take a chance
On a love that burns hot enough to last
So when the night falls
My lonely heart calls

Chorus

Somebody oo Somebody oo
Somebody who loves me yeah
Somebody oo Somebody oo
To hold me in his arms oh
I need a man who'll take a chance
On a love that burns hot enough to last
So when the night falls
My lonely heart calls

Chorus

Don'tcha wanna dance with me baby
Don’tcha wanna dance with me boy
Hey Don'tcha wanna dance with me baby
With somebody who loves me

Don'tcha wanna dance say you wanna dance
Don'tcha wanna dance
Don'tcha wanna dance say you wanna dance
Don'tcha wanna dance
Don'tcha wanna dance say you wanna dance
With somebody who loves me
Dance


JUST THE LONELY TALKING AGAIN

It's the second time around
For you and I boy
And believe me it's confusing me
I'm afraid to say "let's make up" and "All's forgiven"
But somethin' tells me it's heading for heartbreak...
So darling please I'm praying that
This time yeah this time will be different
That you and I can share this dream that I visualize...

Chorus:

Tell me are you really ready for love boy
Or is it just the lonely talking again
Are you really ready for love boy
Or is it the lonely talking again

Now the time before
When we got together
You promised you'd be forever true to me
But all I got from you
Was lots and lots of talking
Lonely nights filled with misery

So baby please please tell me now
That when I fulfill your needs
You won't up and leave me
Even though you know
I'll let you come back

Chorus

Really need to know

Chorus

Tell me now
Wanna know
Really gotta know
Are you ready?
Are you ready?
Are you ready?
Tell me are you ready
Are you ready?
Are you ready?
Need to know
Really wanna know
Really wanna know
Really need to know
Are we gonna talk?
Are we gonna talk?
Don't wanna talk no no no no
I need to know
I really wanna know
You tell me now
Are you ready?
No no no need to know


LOVE WILL SAVE THE DAY

Sometimes life can make you crazy
It can really put your body to the test
You try so hard to make sure everything is right
And you find you've only wound up with a mess
It's a common situation
Even though you feel abandoned and alone
Child, you ain't the first to experience the hurt
So don't panic when you hit the danger zone

Forget this fear and frustration
Love will always play the greater part
When your battles wear you down

Chorus:

When you're feeling down and out
And you've got troubles on your mind
Love will save the day
When you're feeling full of doubt

All you have to do is say a prayer
And love will save the day
There's an answer in your heart
So let your light shine on my dear and
Love will save the day
Love will save the day
Love will save the day
Love will save the day
Love will save the day

Many things in this world bring you down
It's a wonder you can make it through the day
Well you can't sleep cuz your problems are too deep
And there's always something getting in the way
And when you turn on the evening news
Mass confusion is the only thing you'll see
Well there's no question
That we need a new direction cuz
Cuz we all could use some peace and harmony

What you need's a little change of heart
Forget this fear and frustration

DIDN'T WE ALMOST HAVE IT ALL

Remember when we hold on in the rain
The nights we almost lost it once again
We can take the night into tomorrow
Living on feelings
Touching you I feel it again

Chorus:

Didn't we almost have it all
When love was all we had worth giving
The ride with you was worth the fall my friend
Loving you makes life worth living
Didn't we almost have it all
The nights we held on till the morning
You know you'll never love that way again
Didn't we almost have it all

The way you used to touch me felt so fine
We kept our hearts together down the line
A moment in the soul can last forever
Comfort and keep us
Help me bring the feeling back again

Chorus

Didn't we have the best of times
When love was young and new
Couldn't we reach inside and find
The world of me and you
We'll never lose it again
Cause once you know what love is
You'll never let it end

Chorus

Didn't we almost have it all


SO EMOTIONAL

I don't know why I like it
I just do

I've been hearing your heartbeat inside of me
I keep your photograph beside my bed
Livin' in a world of fantasies
I can't get you out of my head uh
I've been waiting for the phone to ring all night
Why you wanna make me feel so good
I got a love of my own babe
I shouldn't get so hung up on you

I remember the way that we touch
I wish I didn't like it so much uh

Chorus:

I get so emotional baby
Everytime I think of you
I get so emotional baby
Ain't it shocking what love can do
Ain't it shocking what love can do
Ain't it shocking what love can do

I gotta watch you walk in the room baby
I gotta watch you walk out
I like the animal way you move
And when you talk I just watch your mouth

I remember the way that we touch
I wish I didn't like it so much no

Chorus

See I remember the way that we touch
I wish I didn't like it so much no no no

I get so emotional baby
Everytime I think of you
I get so emotional baby
Ain't it shocking what love can do
I get so emotional baby
Everytime I think of you
I get so emotional baby
Ain't it shocking what love can do
I get so emotional oh baby
Shocking what love can do
Hey yeah baby baby baby
Baby baby
Oh ain't it shocking what love can do
Yeah baby
Shocking what


WHERE YOU ARE

I saw the news this morning
And saw your face across the screen
And as I poured my coffee,
I picked up a magazine

Chorus:

But as I turned the page
And looked inside
There you were again (there you were)
Oh these lonely times
They never seem to end
You're too far
I know I should be there where you are

Today I did some shopping
Just had to clear my mind again
I can't stop thinkin' bout you
I hopped into a taxi
In a moment I was home
Home again

Chorus

Tossing and turning in my sleep
I can't take being without you
I'm gonna catch the next plane out
I got to get to where you are
No matter how near or far
I got to get there where you are
I know

Chorus

I wanna be where you are
I need to be where you are
I wanna be I wanna be baby
You know I need to be
I know I should be there where you are


LOVE IS A CONTACT SPORT

Contact Contact

You've been avoiding me
Like a cat trying to dodge a dog
I never see ya shine
You're as cold as the London fog
You claim you want my love
Well I wouldn't know by the way you behave
If you want to feel the thrill of my touch
You better come out of your cave

It's so perplexing
Why you fight it won't you try it
Love's electric
Turn me on and see

Chorus:

Love is a contact sport
You gotta move in time
If you wanna do it right
Here I am
Love is a contact sport
You gotta act untamed
If you wanna play the game
So grab my hand, SLAM!

I hate to sound agressive
But I'm tired of waiting for your move
Cut the formalities
Cuz you've got a few things to prove
If you really want my love
I need to feel it down deep from within
Don't make me wait too long
I'm ready now come and stroke my skin

Well all this talking
Worthless chatter just don't matter
Time for stalkin'
Come get next to me

Chorus

Hey boy,
Why don'tcha come on over
So we can make that contact
Contact you dare

It's so perplexing
Why you fight it won't you try it
Love's electric
Turn me on and see

Chorus


YOU'RE STILL MY MAN

On the day that you left me
You said you had no regrets
There's a bond between us
That hasn't been broken yet
And the feelings between us
Will never disappear
How can you be far away
When your spirit's here

Chorus:

You're still my man
Nothing can change it
We still belong together
You're still my man
Nothing can change it
Our love will last forever

And the seasons of our love
Will always change I know
Maybe that's the reason
You felt we had to go
But soon you'll be missing me
Darling I know you well
There's a magic we share together
And no one can break that spell

Chorus

I'll wait for you
The thought that keeps me going each day
Is I believe you still love me
I love you more than words can say

You're still my man
Nothing's gonna change it
Don't you know, you oughta know we belong together
You're still my man
And nothing can change it
Oh baby oh darling you're in my heart forever
Cuz you're my man
Without you
Darling, our love at all

You're still my man
Nothing can change it
Don't you know you oughta know we belong together
Oh You're still my man
Nothing can change it
Oh baby oh darling you're in my heart forever
You're still my man
Nothing can change it
I'm yours, you know you're mine
You're in my heart forever

You're still my man
Nothing can change it
Don't you know you oughta know we belong together
You're still my man...


FOR THE LOVE OF YOU

Drifting on a memory
Ain't no place I'd rather be
Than with you, loving you
Day will make a way for night
All we'll need is candlelight
And a song soft and long, well

Glad to be here alone
With a lover unlike no other
Safe to see a new horizon
Slowly coming into view

Chorus:

I wanna be living for the love of you
All that I'm giving is for the love of you

Lovely as a ray of sun
That touches me when the morning comes
Feels good to me, my love and me
Smoother than a gentle breeze
Flowing through my mind with ease
Soft as can be well when you're loving me

Love to be
Riding the waves of your love
Enchanted with your touch
It seems to me
We can sail together in and out of mystery

Chorus

Paradise I have within
Can't feel insecure again
You're the key and this I see
Now and then I lose my way
Using words to try and say
What I feel yeah love is real ooh
I might as well
Sign my name on a card
Which could say it better
Time will tell
Cause it seems that I've done
Just about all that I can do do do

Chorus


WHERE DO BROKEN HEARTS GO

I know it's been some time
But there's something on my mind
You see I haven't been the same
Since that cold November day
We said wee needed space
But all we found was an empty place
And the only things I learned
Is that I need you desperately
So here I am
And can you please tell me (oh)

Chorus:

Where do broken hearts go
Can they find their way home
Back to the open arms
Of a love that's waiting there
And if somebody loves you
Won't they always love you
I look in your eyes
And I know that you still care for me

I've been around enough to know
That dreams don't turn to gold
And that there is no easy way
No you just can't run away
And what we had was so much more
Than we ever had before
And no matter how I try
You're always on my mind
So here I am
And can you please tell me (oh)

Chorus

And now that I am here with you
I'll never let you go
I look into your eyes
And now I know, now I know

Chorus

For me
You still care for me...


I KNOW HIM SO WELL

Nothing is so good it lasts eternally
Perfect situations must go wrong
But this has never yet prevented me
From wanting far too much for far too long
Looking back, I could have done it differently
Won a few more moments, who can tell?
But it took time to understand the man
Now at least I know, I know him well

Wasn't it good, Wasn't it fine
Isn't it madness he can't be mine
But in the end, he needs a little more than before
Security, he needs his fantasy and freedom
I know him so well

No one in your life is with you constantly
No one is completely on your side
And though I move my world to be with him
Still the gap between us is too wide
Looking back, I could have played it differently
Learned about the man before I fell
But I was ever so much younger then

Wasn't it good (oh so good), Wasn't it fine (so fine)
Isn't it madness he can't be mine

Didn't I know how it would go
If I knew from the start
Why am I falling apart

Wasn't it fine
Isn't it madness he can't be mine
But in the end, he needs a little more than before
Security, he needs his fantasy and freedom
I know him so well
It took some to understand him
Hoo ooh I know him so well


I'M YOUR BABY TONIGHT

From the moment I saw you
I went outta my mind
Though I never believed in
Love at first sight
But you got a magic boy
That I just can't explain
Well you gotta, you gotta way
That you make me feel
I can do, I can do anything for you baby
I'll be down for you baby
Lay all my cards out tonight
Just call on me baby
I'll be there in a hurry
It's your move so baby baby decide

Chorus:

Whatever you want from me
I'm giving you everything
I'm your baby tonight
You've given my ecstasy
You are my fantasy
I'm your baby tonight

From the second you touched me
I was ready to die
I've never been fatal
You're my first time
I feel like an angel
Who just started to fly
Well you gotta, you gotta way that
You make a me feel I can, feel I can
Do anything for you baby
Hold on and enjoy the ride
I'm not in no hurry
We can fly all night baby
It's your move now baby
Baby let's fly

Chorus

Whatever I do boy
It's all about you baby
And ain't it the truth boy
I'm helplessly in love with you
What else i can do boy
But be there for you baby
You gotta, you gotta way that
You make a me feel I can, feel I can
Do any, Do anything Yeah!

Chorus

Looks like I'm fatal
It's all on the table
And baby you hold the cards
You got the magic
And I've got to have it
I don't want the pieces
I want every single part
I'll be your angel
I'm ready and able
Whatever you want is fine
Whenever you're ready
Just call on your lady
And I'll be your baby tonight

Chorus


MY NAME IS NOT SUSAN

One night not long ago
I fell for you
Too easy to let go
She was one from your past
One of the few
You said it didn't last

Now Romeo you know I can't believe
Your tongue would slip so easily
I know you think I oughta let it be
But get it right
Next time
That's the end of me

Chorus:

My name is not Susan
So watch what you say
If you still need her
Then be on your way
Don't wanna hear about Susan
She got nothin' on me
So show some respect
For the love you receive
My name is not Susan

No, no, no, no, no get it right

Last night you were asleep
Deep in a dream
I heard you call her name
Then you turned to embrace
I froze in place
Never to be the same

Now Romeo you know I never knew
My heart would bust so easily
I know you think I oughta let it go
But get it right
Next time
Say good-bye to me boy

Chorus

I never wanna be the girly
That you call one and only
You know the kind of girly
That you would call when you get lonely
I never should have let you in
A damn shame
Forgot my name
Well anyway

Chorus

My name ain't susan (better get it right)
My name ain't susan
My name ain't susan...


ALL THE MAN THAT I NEED

I used to cry myself to sleep at night
But that was all before he came
I thought love had to hurt to turn out right
But now he's here, it's not the same
It's not the same

Chorus:

He fills me up
He gives me love
More love than I've ever seen
He's all I've got
He's all I've got in this world
But he's all the man that I need

And in the morning when I kiss his eyes
He takes me down
And rocks me slow
And in the evening when the moon is high
He holds me close
And won't let go
He won't let go

Chorus

(Kenny G Saxophone Solo)

Chorus

He fills me up
He gives me love
More love than I've ever seen (more love more love)
He's all I've got
He's all I've got in this world
But he's all the man (all the man) that I need

More love than I've ever seen

More love than I've ever seen...


LOVER FOR LIFE

I hope you realize baby
Just what you mean to me
Hey you where I run for cover
Your love is shelter for me
And when I find myself needing
Some lifting up
One night with you and
That always is enough
How you make being in love
A true rare affair
So take me I'm your prisoner

Chorus:

Will you sentence me
To be your lover for life
Your lover for life
Will you sentence me
I wanna be your lover for life
Your lover for life
Your lover yeah yeah yeah

I just want to hear you say
You'll be my lover, lover for life
Capture, there's no getaway
You're my lover, my lover for life

Under your spell or
Under my own power
It really doesn't matter to me
No boy
See I fell in love
The first time I saw you
And have been falling in love
Ever since mm boy

You heard my testimony
You've seen my evidence
Hey, it's a crime of passion
In every sense
And justice would be served
If you stay here in my world
So take me I'm your prisoner

Chorus

I just want to hear you say
You'll be my lover, lover for life
Capture, there's no getaway
You're my lover, my lover for life

I'm your prisoner
Take me
I'm your prisoner
And sentence me to be
Your lover for life
Wanna be
Take me baby
Your lover, your baby


ANYMORE

I believe in roses
But only from the heart
And if it's not sincere baby then
I don't want no part

I believe in one love baby,
True monogamy
What I don't know can't hurt me
That's not the way I see

If you believed in me
You won't mess around
It's not like I don't know
You've been with every girl in town

You got a lot of nerve to think
I just close my eyes
While you walk aorund so full of it
I give you my surprise

Chorus: (repeat twice)

I don't need your kinda love
I don't need your kinda trust
I don't want you, anymore
I don't need your kinda kisses
I don't want to be your Mrs.
I don't want to anymore

I believe that angels
Watch everything we do
And all the wrong you're doing
Just might come back on you

I believe in phone calls
When you're not by my side
Especially when it's lonely
In the middle of the night

If you believe that true love
Is only made in bed
Lord have mercy on you
Chivalry is dead

You got a lot of nerve to think,
To think that I'm still down
While you've taken me for granted
Boy I'm through, I'm outta town

Chorus

So baby (so baby)
You can kiss this girl goodbye
I'm through with ya
Movin on with my life
No more pain, no more fears
I'm movin on, I'm keepin on
I'm through with all the tears

Your kinda love
Your kinda trust
I don't want you, don't need you
Can't have you
Your kinda kisses (yeah)
To be your Mrs.
I don't want you (sing it for us)

Chorus

Don't need, don't want you
Don't need, don't want
Don't need that kind of love
Don't want your kind of love
Don't need it
Don't want it


MIRACLE

How could I throw away a miracle
How could I face another day
It's all of my doing
I made a choice
And today I pay
My heart is full of pain
How could you understand
The way I feel
How could you relate to so much pain
Seems as though nothing can comfort me
So today I pray
That someone should listen for

Chorus:

Nothing should matter
Not when love grows inside you
The choice is yours
There's a miracle in store
Nothing should matter
Not when love grows inside you
A voice of love is crying out
Don't throw love away
There's a miracle in store

How could I let go of a miracle
Nothing could ever take its place
Thought I was looking
Out for myself
Now it seems the pain
Is all that I have gained
I wonder if I could be your miracle
I wonder if I could spare you pain
Seems as though nothing will comfort me
Less today I pray
That you should come listen

Chorus

Don't ever throw away your miracle
Don't let it slip away
Nothing should matter

Chorus


I BELONG TO YOU

In a world when dreams are few
You've got me baby I've got you
You're the one that makes me feel brand new

Sometimes love can wear you out
Chill your soul baby, make you doubt
That you'll never find the one that's true

All of my life I've longed for this
Someone who makes me happy
Let's seal this moment with a kiss
I wanna know
And nothing's gonna stop me cuz'

Chorus:

I've been to the bottom
Now I'm back on top
When I'm feelin' the rhythm
As we start to rock
When ya get down to it
I belong to you

Though I'm not afraid
To let it show
I'll tell the world
I want everyone to know
There's nobody does
Me like you do (like you do)

All of my love is yours tonight
I live to make you happy
Nothin' has ever felt so right
I want it all and
Nothin's gonna stop me cuz

Repeat Chorus

When you touch me tender
And you reach my soul
When I start to weaken
And I lose control
When you get down to it
I belong to you

Chorus

Say that you love me boy
And I'll make it right
Hoh yeah
I'll rock your heart and soul
Till the morning light
Boy no I will yeah yeah
Hoo you know I belong to you

WHO DO YOU LOVE

Who do you love do you love love love
Who do you love do you love
I got a feeling you're the boy for me
I bet your love can set me free
I feel a love thing going
It started weak then got oh so strong

Strong enough to rock the world
Straight up I wanna be your girl
So I keep praying to the stars above
That it's me who you're gonna love

Am I the one (yeah)
Is she the one
Who do you love

Chorus:

(Who) Who do you love
I wanna know
Could it be me
Won't you tell me so
Who do you love
You've got to say
Don't wanna go
Why can't I stay

I keep pushing so you'll be mine
We'll be loving baby over time
My sensitivity gets so high
It keeps me dreaming that you're my guy

Then I have to stop and check myself
Could it be that you love someone else
I can't give in to jealousy
So touch me now if you love me Am I the one (come on now)
Is she the one (make up your mind)
Who do you love
Am I the one (who do you love huh)
Is she the one
Who do you love
Am I the one (am I the one)
Is she the one (Is she the one)
Who do you love
Am I the one (I'm waiting)
Is she the one (I'm waiting...)
Who do you love

Chorus


WE DIDN'T KNOW

We didn't know we didn't know
Since I don't know when
We've been only friends
No more but no less
Our friendship we had at best

A voice to console
An ear to confide
That someone you tell
Your deepest of feelings inside

Chorus:

But we didn't know
When we held each other
It would feel so right
We didn't know
On that night we'd be falling in love
I looked at you
You looked at me
In ways we never thought we would be
But like tomorrow's today's mystery
We didn't know

Be it big, be it small
On you I could call
Nothing but to ask
You'd be right there in a flash

A hand I could hold
That friend I could trust
But the love that we shared
Was just platonic between us

Chorus

That's what happens
When innocent friends
Turn serious lovers
And we're so happy that
We've fallen in love
And still can be best of friends

When they'd break your heart
And when they'd make you cry
We both would confer
You should give love one more try

We've searched everywhere
For true love to find
Yet who'd think it was us
That we were longing for all the time

Cause we didn't know
When we held each other
It would feel so right
We didn't know
On that night we'd be falling in love
I looked at you
And you looked at me
In ways we never thought
We would be
But just like the future
No one can see
We didn't know

Chorus


AFTER WE MAKE LOVE

I've been waiting such a long time
For a love that's real to come my way
Gonna take some getting used to
Now that love is here to stay

Chorus:
After we make love
I'll be lost in the afterglow
You're all I'm dreaming of
I just can't l just can't let the feeling go
After we make love
There's no doubt in my mind I've been touched by
All that heaven and earth will allow
All that matters is right here and now

Now the world is filled with wonder
You've turned my life around in just one day
I love the spell you've put me under
Just one kiss can take my breath away

Chorus

All those lonely days and nights
Were well worth going through
I'm so glad I never gae my heart away
It's like I waited all my life
So I could give it all to you

I've been waiting such a long time
For a love that's real to come my way
It's gonna take some getting used to
Now that love is here to stay

Chorus:
After we make love
Feels so good to be lost in the afterglow
After we make love
I just can't l just can't let the feeling go
After we make love
There's no doubt in my mind I've been touched by
All that heaven and earth will allow
All that matters is right here and now
All that matters is right here and now


I'M KNOCKIN'

Who's to say it's easy
Sometimes life's not fair
I've heard some say
Just knock the door will open
And when it does
You'll find love standing there

Chorus:
And if it's true I'm knockin'
Come open up the door
My heart's been right here waiting
For someone to adore
Well if it's true, I'm knockin'
Come open up the door
My heart's been right here waiting
For someone to adore
Say if it's true

In sight we have two choices
And it's told me to do or die
And every word he speaks makes me certain
Beyond the door's life's reason why

Chorus

Knock and the door will open
The door will open
Look and you will find it
Look and you will find it
For certain it's true
For me and for you
When love comes and knocks
Here's the right thing to do

Chorus

Cmon, knock on the door
It will open, I'm knockin'
Please open up the door yeah
My heart's been right here waiting
Someone to adore
Ask me what I want
Peace of mind
Ask me what I don't
Waste of (my) time
Tell me that it's true
And you will find me knockin'


I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU

If I should stay
I would only be in your way
So I'll go but I know
I'll think of you every step of the way

And I will always love you
Will always love you

You, my darling you

Bittersweet Memories
That is all I'm taking with me
So goodbye please don't cry
We both know I'm not what you
You need

And I will always love you
I will always love you

I hope life treats you kind
And I hope you have all you dreamed of
And I wish to you joy and happiness
But above all this, I wish to you love

And I will always love you
Will always love you
I will always love
Will always love you...
Will always love you...

I will always love you
Oh, I'll always, I'll always love you


I HAVE NOTHING

Share my life
Take me for what I am
Cuz I'll never change
All my colors for you
Take my love
I'll never ask for too much
Just all that you are
And everything that you do

I don't really need to look
Very much farther
I don't wanna go
Where you don't follow
I don't hold it back again
This passion inside
Can't run from myself
There's nowhere to hide

Chorus:
Don't make me close one more door
I don't wanna hurt anymore
Stay in my arms if you dare
Must I imagine you there?
Don't walk away from me
I Have Nothing
Nothing
Nothing, if i don't have you

You see through
Right to the heart of me
You break down my walls
With the strength of your love
I never knew
Love like I known it's with you
Will the memories survive?
One I can hold on to

I don't really need to look
Very much farther
I don't wanna go
Where you don't follow
I don't hold it back again
This passion inside
Can't run from myself
There's nowhere to hide
You're the love I remember forever

Chorus

Don't walk away from me
Don't walk away from me
Don't you dare walk away from me
I have nothing
Nothing
Nothing, if I don't have you
You, if I don't have you


I'M EVERY WOMAN

Anything you want done baby

Chorus:
I'm every woman
It's all in me
Anything you want done baby
I'll do it naturally
I'm every woman
It's all in me
I can read your thoughts right now
Every word from A to Z

I can cast a spell
Secrets you can't tell
Mix a special groove
Put fire inside of you
Anytime you feel danger or fear
Then instantly, I will appear

Chorus

I can sense your needs
Like rain unto the seeds
I can make a rhyme
Of confusion in your mind
And when it comes
To some good old-fashioned love
I got it, I got it
got it got it baby

Chorus

I ain't braggin'
Cuz I'm the one
Just ask me
Ooh it shall be done
Don't bother to compare
I got it got it
got it got it baby

Chorus

I'm every woman (Chaka!)
I'm every woman (Chaka!)


RUN TO YOU

I know that when you look at me
There's so much that you just don't see
But if you would only take the time
I know in my heart you'll find
Oh, a girl who's scared sometimes
Who isn't always strong, can't you see the hurt in me?
I feel so all alone

Chorus:
I wanna run to you hoo hoo
I wanna run to you hoo hoo hoo
Won't you hold me in your arms
And keep me safe from harm?
I wanna run to you hoo hoo
But if I come to you hoo hoo hoo hoo
Tell me will you stay or will you run away

Each day, each day I play the role
Of someone always in control
But at night, I come home and turn the key
There's nobody there, no-one cares for me
Oh, what's the sense
Of trying hard to find your dreams
without someone to share it with
Tell me what does it mean

Chorus

Run away no
I need you here
I need you here to wipe away my tears
To kiss away my fears
If you only knew, how much I wanna run to you

Chorus


QUEEN OF THE NIGHT

Chorus:
I got the stuff that you want
I got the thing that you need
I got more than enough
To make you drop to your knees
Cuz I'm the queen of the night
Queen of the night oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah yeah

Don't make no difference
If I'm wrong or I'm right
I've got the feeling
That I'm willing tonight
Well I ain't nobody's angel
What can I say?
Well I'm just that way

Chorus

Just say say it again

You got a problem with the way that I am
They say I'm trouble
But I don't give a damn
But when I bad I know I'm better
I just wanna get you
And turn it up for you

Chorus

Just say say it again

(Guitar Solo)

Chorus

Just say say it again

When there are words unspoken
In your soul there's
Answers to your prayers
If you're searching for
A place you know
A familiar face
Somewhere to go
You should look inside yourself
You're halfway there

Sometimes you'll laugh
Sometimes you'll cry
Life never tells us
The when's or why's
When you've got friends to wish you well
You'll find a point when
You will exhale (yeah, yeah, say)

To take our pain away

Join the celebration

Way down deep joy

Unspeakable joy

I GO TO THE ROCK

Where do I go?
When there's nobody else to turn to
Who do I talk to?
When nobody wants to listen
Who do I lean on? Oh
When there is no foundation stable
I go to the rock
I know he is able, I go to the rock

Chorus:
I go to the rock of my salvation
I go to the stone that the builders rejected
I run to the mountain
And the mountain he stands by me
When the Earth all around me is sinking sand
On Christ the solid rock I stand
When I need a shelter I go to the rock

Where do I go, where do I go
When the storms of life are threatening
Who do I turn to when those winds of sorrow blow
And is there a refuge in the time of tribulation
Go to the rock, I know he is able
I go to the rock

Chorus

I go the rock when I need a friend
I can go to the rock
I go to the rock when I need a shelter
You can go to the rock
You can go to the rock
You can go to the rock
I can go
I go to the rock
I can go to the rock
I can go to the rock
I can go, I can go to the rock
I can go when I need some shelter
When I need a friend
I can go

And when the Earth around me is sinking sand
On Christ the solid rock I stand I can stand
When I need a friend
I go to the rock
I can go to the rock
Hey hey hey oh yeah

Bigger than the saddest frown
Bigger than the brightest smile
And longer than the longest mile

Somebody bigger than the biggest fight
And darker than the darkest night

And who hung the moon in the starry, starry, starry sky

Keeps me company with love to guide you

And who gives me faith
I will never, never, never, never, never doubt

Somebody deeper than the desert sands
Bigger than the tallest man
And phatter than the phattest phat
Bigger than the Shaq attack

YOU WERE LOVED

We all wanna make a place in this world
We all want our voices to be heard
Every one wants a chance to be someone
We all have dreams we need to dream
Sweeter than any star you can reach
Cuz when you reach and find, you've found someone
You'll hold this world's most priceless thing
The greatest gift this life can bring
Is when you look back and know
You were loved

Chorus:
You were loved by someone
Touched by someone
Held by someone
Meant something to someone
Loved somebody
Touched somebody's heart
Along the way
You can look back and say
You were loved (yes you were)

You can have diamonds in your hands
Have all the riches in the land
But, without love,
You don't really have a thing, no no
When somebody cares that you're alive
When somebody trusts you with their life
That's when you'll know (huh)
That you have all you need
You'll hold this world's most priceless gift
The finest treasure that there is
You can look back and know
You were loved

Chorus

Bridge:
So many roads that you can take
Whatever way you go
Don't take that road alone
It's better you should know

Chorus:
You were loved by someone
Touched by someone
Held by someone
Meant something to someone
Loved somebody
Touched somebody's heart
Along the way
You can look back and say
You did okay
You were loved

So remember to tell that special one (yeah)
You were loved
You were loved
You were loved
You were loved


MY HEART IS CALLING

Who would've thought of it
That I might feel like this
Some kind of wonderful
Is nothing quite comparable

Nothing about it
It's all so innocent
I wasn't looking for it
Came knocking on my door

I'm trying to do things right
But I'm about to lose a fight
Cuz spending time with you
Well it feels so good
And that's the truth

And everyday with you
I swear it brings me closer
To my only reservation
Is you, my sweet temptation, baby

Chorus:
(Oh oh) All my heart is calling
I'm falling for you
(Oh oh) All my heart is calling
I'm falling for you

Who would imagine that
I'd find my happiness
Someone I barely know
I'd like to take it slow

You're so different boy
You're breaking all my rules
What is it in your smile
That makes me feel the way that I do

I'm trying to live my life
And I'm, I'm trying to live it right
If I desire you
Well it ain't because I'm trying to
But everyday with you
It brings me closer
To my only reservation
Is you, my sweet temptation baby

Chorus

Bridge:
I've given it consideration
But it all adds up to you
I won't deny this heart is calling for you baby
I've given it a lot of thought
And it all ends up on you
My sweet temptation
God knows I'm falling for you

Chorus

(Fade away with "I don't know why boy, I don't know why baby")


WHO WOULD IMAGINE A KING

Mommies and daddies always believe
That their little angels are special indeed
And you could grow up to be anything
But who would imagine a king

A shepherd or teacher is what you could be
Or maybe a fisherman out on the sea
Or maybe a carpenter building things
But who would imagine a king

It was so clear when the wise men arrived
And the angels were singing your name
That the world would be different cuz you were alive
That's what heaven stood to proclaim

One day an angel said quietly
That soon he would bring something special to me
And of all those wonderful gifts he bring

Who would imagine, who could imagine
Who would imagine a king
Mmm hmm
(Bobbi Kristina): Mommy

IT'S NOT RIGHT, BUT IT'S OKAY

Friday night you and your boys went out to eat
Then they hung out,but you came home around three
If six of ya'll went out then four of you were really cheap
'Cause only two of you had dinner
I found your credit card receipt

Chorus:

It's not right but it's okay
I'm gonna make it anyway
Pack your bags up and leave
Don't you dare come running back to me
It's not right but it's okay
I'm gonna make it anyway
Close the door behind you
Leave your key
I'd rather be alone than unhappy

I'm packing bags so you can leave town for a week
The phone rings then you look at me (why'd you turn and look at me)
Said it was one of your friends
Down on 54th street boy
So why did 213 show up on your caller ID
I've been through all this before
So how could you think
That I would stand around and take some more
Things are gonna change
Cause I won't be a fool anymore
That's why you have to leave
So don't turn around to see my face
There's no more tears left here for you to see

Was it really worth you going out like that - tell me
See I'm moving on and I refuse to turn back
See all of this time I thought I had somebody down for Whitney
It turns out you were making a fool of me

Chorus

It's not right but it's okay - [It's not right - so okay baby]
I'm gonna make it anyway [I can pay my own rent]
Pack your bags up and leave [pay my light bill - take care of my babies]
Don't you dare come running back to me
It's not right but it's okay
I'm gonna make it anyway [get up and leave]
Close the door behind you
Leave your key
I'd rather be alone than unhappy

It's not right but it's okay [I'm gonna be okay, I'm gonna be alright]
I'm gonna make it anyway [I'm gonna be okay, I'm gonna be alright]
Pack your bags up and leave [I'm gonna be okay, I'm gonna be alright]
Don't you dare come running back to me
It's not right but it's okay [I'm gonna be okay, I'm gonna be alright]
I'm gonna make it anyway [I'm gonna be okay, I'm gonna be alright]
Close the door behind you [I'm gonna be okay, I'm gonna be alright]
Leave your key
I'd rather be alone than unhappy [there's no more tears left here for you to see]

HEARTBREAK HOTEL

This is the heartbreak hotel
This is the heartbreak hotel
This is the heartbreak hotel
This is the heartbreak hotel
This is the heartbreak hotel
This is the heartbreak hotel
This is the heartbreak hotel
This is the heartbreak hotel
This is the heartbreak hotel

You said that you'd be here by nine
Instead you took your time
You didn't think to call me boy
Here I sit trying not to cry
Asking myself why you do this to me

Since you're not around for me to tell you baby face to face
I'm writing you this letter, and this is what I have to say:
All I really wanted was some of your time
Instead you told me lies
When someone else was on your mind
What you do to me
Look what you did to me
I thought that you were someone who would do me right
Until you played with my emotions and you made me cry
What you do to me
Can't take what you did to me

Now I see that you been doing wrong
You played me all along
And made a fool of me, baby
You got it all wrong to think that I wouldn't find out
That you were cheating on me
How could you do it to me

Since you're not around for me to tell you baby face to face
I'm writing you this letter, and this is what I have to say:
All I really wanted was some of your time
Instead you told me lies
When someone else was on your mind
What you do to me
Look what you did to me
I thought that you were someone who would do me right
Until you played with my emotions and you made me cry
What you do to me
Can't take what you did to me

Heartbreak hotel
This is the heartbreak hotel
This is the heartbreak hotel
This is the heartbreak hotel
This is the heartbreak hotel [this is the heartbreak]
This is the heartbreak hotel [welcome to the heartbreak hotel]
This is the heartbreak hotel
This is the heartbreak hotel [why'd you do it]
This is the heartbreak hotel

All I really wanted was some of your time
Instead you told me lies
When someone else was on your mind
What you do to me
Look what you did to me
I thought that you were someone who would do me right
Until you played with my emotions and you made me cry
What you do to me
Can't take what you did to me

All I really wanted was some of your time
Instead you told me lies
When someone else was on your mind
What you do to me
Look what you did to me
I thought that you were someone who would do me right
Until you played with my emotions and you made me cry
What you do to me
Can't take what you did to me

I aint gon' take it
I aint gon' take it no more
I aint gon take it boy
I aint gon' take it no more

Everything that you said was a lie
Don't lie to me
Tell me what it is and I will be alright


MY LOVE IS YOUR LOVE

Clap your hands y'all it's alright
Turn me up
Turn me up
Turn me up

If tomorrow is judgement day (sing mommy)
And I'm standing on the front line
And the Lord ask me what I did with my life
I will say I spent it with you

If I wake up in World War Three
I see destruction and poverty
And I feel like I wanna home
It's okay if you comin' with me

Chorus:

'Cause your love is my love
And my love is your love
It would take an eternity to break us
And the chains of Amistad couldn't hold us
Your love is my love
And my love is your love
It would take an eternity to break us
And the chains of Amistad couldn't hold us

If I lose my fame and fortune
And I'm homeless on the street
And I'm sleeping in Grand Central Station
It's okay if you're sleeping with me

As the years they pass us by
We stay young through each other's eyes
And no matter how old we get
It's okay as long as I got you babe

Chorus

If I should die this very day
Don't cry, cause on earth we wasn't meant to stay
And no matter what people day
I'll be waiting for you after judgement day

Chorus

Clap your hands
I said the record is not over yet


WHEN YOU BELIEVE

Many nights we've prayed
With no proof anyone could hear
In our hearts a hopeful song
We barely understood
Now we are not afraid
Although we know there's much to fear
We were moving mountains
Long before we knew we could

Chorus:

There can be miracles
When you believe
Though hope is frail
It's hard to kill
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve
When you believe
Somehow you will
You will when you believe

In this time of fear
When prayer so often proves in vain
Hope seemed like the summer birds
Too swiftly flown away
Yet now I'm standing here
My heart's so full I can't explain
Seeking faith and speaking words
I never thought I'd say

Chorus

They don't always happen when you ask
And it's easy to give in to your fear
But when you're blinded by your pain
Can't see your way safe through the rain
Thought of a still resilient voice
Says love is very near

There can be miracles
When you believe
Though hope is frail
It's hard to kill
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve
When you believe
Somehow you will
Now you will
You will when you believe

You will when you believe
Just believe
Gotta believe
You will when you believe


IF I TOLD YOU THAT

Now tell me how you feel
If I told you that I have feelings for you
And would it be so wrong to say
What's on my mind
I'm sorry I have to
We've been friends but with time
What I feel deep inside for you has changed
But I'd give up on love, if I thought
That it was untrue for you

Chorus:

If I told you that
I wanted to see you
And if I told you that
I there to please you
If I told you that
I'd always keep you
What would you say
If I told you that

I know that we were just friends
But what if I decide to bring somethings in
I hope it won't offend the trust we have cause I
Don't want this to end
If you think that we'll lose what we have
Then I'd just rather stay the same
Cause I don't wanna choose
Between two of the most precious things to me

Chorus

If we take this chance
And extend to each other romance
I hope it would be
The right thing for you and me
If I told you that
I wanted to see you
And if I told you that
I there to please you
If I told you that
I'd always keep you
What would you say
If I told you that

Would you be there for me
Could you dare to hold me
Will my feelings leave me
Lonely if I told you


IN MY BUSINESS

Baby why I get so many people
Telling me they seen you up in the mall
Are they mistaking
All up on some chick as though I don't exist
What is this

Chorus:

Why they all in our business
It's just too ridiculous
I can't get no sleep
They just keep warning me
Should I believe it
They say I don't need it
Don't they know I made up my mind

Honey too many people say you're faking me
They ask what have you done lately
They say we won't last
They're predicting
That it's over it's over

Too many girls they dislike me
Since I got you They wanna fight me
'Cause I'm the chick walking around with the ring
Tell me why these hoes don't even like me
Too many girls they dislike me
Since I got you They wanna fight me
'Cause I'm the chick walking around with the ring
Tell me why these hoes don't even like me

Why they all up in our business
It's just too ridiculous
I can't get no sleep
They just keep warning me
Should I believe it
They say I don't need it
Don't they know I made up my mind

Chorus

Oh boy

They mad cause love is what they're missing
That's why they stay up in our business

They all up in our business

Chorus

Why you all in my business
Get a job


I LEARNED FROM THE BEST

Did you really think that
I would really take you back
Let you back in my heart one more time
Ooh no no
Did you think that I’d still care
That there’d be more feeling there
Did you think you could walk back in my life

So you found you miss the love you threw away
Baby but you found it out too late
Too late

Chorus:

And so you know the way it feels to cry
The way that I cried when you broke my world in two
Baby I learned the way to break a heart
I learned from the best
I learned from you
Oh baby now
I learned from you

I remember cold nights
Tears I though would never dry
How you shattered my world
With your goodbye
Your goodbye baby
Would’ve sold my soul then
Just to have you back again
Now you’re the last thing on my mind

Now you say your sorry and
You’ve changed your ways
Sorry but you changed you ways too late

Chorus

So when all you’ve got are sleepless nights
When those tears are clouding up your eyes
Just remember it was you who said goodbye
Who said goodbye

And so you know the way it feels to cry
The way that I cried when you broke my world in two
Baby I learned the way to break a heart
I learned from the best
I learned from you
Oh baby now
I learned from you
I learned from the best
I learned from you


OH YES

Felt you in my heart
Now I breathe love

Chorus:

It's you that make me smile
When everything gets crazy

No other man can faze me 'cause
You're in my heart

The time you looked into my eyes

'Cause it's something you do
That makes me feel this way

My peace
My happiness
And you you you you baby

GET IT BACK

[Ya'll ready]
[Whitney]
[Darkchild]
[Could get it back - could could get it back]

Remember when It all began
We were all in love
Then came the friends
Telling you when your time for me was good enough
I constantly had to compete
With you crew and their schemes
Remembering back in the day
I used to mean everything

Chorus:

If we could just get it back
To the way it used to be
My only wish would be that
Nothing would change with you and me
I remember how it was
And I know that for a fact
We were oh so deep in love
If we could just get it back

Now tell me why
So many nights
You had so much to do baby
When you said bye
Sometimes I tried
I tried to make you choose
Now tell me how you can allow
You're boys to control [darlin']

It was unfair
But now you need to know

That I'm moving on
Boy what would you do
Things just ain't the same
We were supposed to
Conquer everything yeah yeah now
Boy let me tell you
You're got to make a change [oh boy]

Chorus

And I know that for a fact
We were oh so deep in love
If we could just get it back

[Remember how we used to dance]

[Remember how we used to dance]
[I like the way we used to dance]
[Girl let me see you dance]
[Dance with me dance with me]

Chorus

Now if I told you [gettin' it back to the way it used to be]
Boy what would you do [show me show me show me]

If we could just get it back

If we could just get it back


UNTIL YOU COME BACK

I lost my heart
A long time ago
You make me feel
Like no one had before
Boy you made me love you
Then you walked out the door
See I will not rest
Until you say I'm forever yours

And boy I won't stop at nothing
I won't give you up and
You've gotta feel something I know
I will not love again
Until you come back
Come back to my arms
'Til you come back to me baby
Until you come back
Don't care how long
It's not important to me
Don't care how far
Love's never too far for me
I just might be crazy
When it comes to my heart
But I can not rest
Until the day we're no longer apart

And boy I won't stop at nothing
I won't get you up and
You've gotta feel sometimes I know
I will not love again
Until you come back
Come back to my arms
'Til you come back to me baby
Until you come back to me

Nobody plays with my heart
You can't walk away from it all
You can run but your heart cannot hide
'Cause it knows you belong in my life

And boy I won't stop at nothing
I won't give you up and
You've gotta feel sometimes I know
I will not love again
Until you come back
Come back to my arms
'Til you come back to me baby
Until you come back to me
'Til you come back to me baby
Come on home
Come home
To me


I BOW OUT

Tired of playing this game
And I won’t play it no more
And I won’t take it no more
Through with being your fool
And I won’t do it no more
And I won’t
I won’t keep up this act
Not for one minute
I’m gonna pull I’m gonna pull this curtain down

Chorus:

This time I won’t play this game
I made a vow to make a change and
I Bow Out [I won’t be hanging around baby]
I decline to take the pain and
I resign the masquerade
I Bow Out [I won’t be staying around baby]
I Bow Out

Can’t go on with the show
Your just a stage I went through
Now your just fading from view [yeah]
Time for a change of scene
Guess I’ll be taking my leave
I guess I won’t, I won’t stay in this play
Not for one minute
I gonna make
I wanna make my exit now

Chorus

When your left standing on that stage all alone
Maybe you will realise
You should have learned to treat me right
And when this final act is finally through
Maybe you’ll wish you’d been
The kind of man you should have been
Now watch me say goodbye
And walk right out of your life
This time I won’t play this game [this time - this I made up my mind]
I made a vow to make a change and
I Bow Out [I won’t be hanging around baby]
I decline to take the pain and [I decline boy]
I resign the masquerade and [no more sayin']
I Bow Out [I won’t be staying around baby]
I Bow Out
This time I won’t play this game
I made a vow to make a change and
I Bow Out [said I - gotta - I gotta bow out]
I decline to take the pain and [do you believe it]
I resign the masquerade and [do you hear me - do you hear me baby]
I Bow Out [I won’t be staying around baby]
I Bow Out


YOU'LL NEVER STAND ALONE

If there's a time when the tears should fill your eyes
And you can't see past the shadows
To the sun on the other side
Don't despair
Because there always will be someone there
Don't lose faith
Love won't let you lose your way because You

Chorus:

You'll never stand alone
I'll be standing by
I'll keep you from the cold
I'll hold you when you cry
I'll be there to be strong
When you can't find the strength inside
And you
You'll always have a home
In these arms of mine
You'll never stand alone
Love is standing by

If there's a day
When the rain should find your heart
And you're cold and tried and lonely
And this would has you in the dark
Don't be scared
You can just reach for me and I'll be there
Don't lose hope
Love will see you through you know
Because you

Chorus

Standing by to lift you above all the hurt and pain
Standing by to carry you through
All the tears and rain
Reach for me
I'll be with you
Reach for me
I'll see you through
I'll be the one to hold you
The one to show you that you

Chorus

Love is standing by


I WAS MADE TO LOVE HIM

I was born in Newark, sho' was
Bob's from Orchard Park, now
We're always hand in hand
He wore hightop shoes and shirt tails
Nip wore here pig tails
I know I loved him even then

You know some disapproved it
They even boohooed it
But I told them time and time and time again
You know I was made to love him
Build my world around him
Yeah Hey hey hey

He's been my inspiration
Showed appreciation
For the love I gave him through the years
Like a sweet magnolia tree
My love blossomed tenderly
My love grew sweeter through the years

I know - my baby loves me
My baby needs me
That's why we made it through the years
I was made to love him
Worship and adore him
Ya'll say Hey hey hey

All through thick and thin
Our love just won't end
'Cause I love my baby love my baby
My baby loves me
My baby needs me
And I know I ain't going nowhere

I was just a little thang
When that love bug bit me
I had the fever with each passing year

If ocean tumbles
And the whole world crumbles
By his side I'll still be standing there

'Cause I was made to love him
Made to live for him say hey hey hey
I was made to love him
Built my world all around him
Hey hey hey

I love my baby
Nip ain’t goin’ nowhere
Say Hey hey hey
Say Hay hey hey

Y’all don’t know nothin’
Built my world all around him say

Thank you for being woman enough to come
Whitney, what's this about?
I know he's leaving me for you
Who said that, who told you?
That is true
What is he telling you
Could it be the same things that he told me?
He told me that he loved me
I heard that
He told me I was beautiful
Huh

And when you love him he becomes unattracted to you
Oh, no - he's changing now, prove you wrong
No, you won't
So go away - leave us the hell alone! See, he loves me
He'll hurt you
He'll stay with me
He'll leave you

COULD I HAVE THIS KISS FOREVER

Over and over I look in your eyes
You are all I desire
You have captured me
I want to hold you
I want to be close to you
I never want to let go

I wish that this night would never end
I need to know

Could I hold you for a lifetime
Could I look into your eyes
Could I have this night to share this night together
Could I hold you close beside me
Could I hold you for all time
Could I could I have this kiss forever
Could I could I have this kiss forever, forever

Over and over I've dreamed of this night

Now you're here by my side
You are next to me
I want to hold you and touch you and taste you
And make you want no one but me

I wish that this kiss could never end
Oh baby please

Could I hold you for a lifetime
Could I look into your eyes
Could I have this night to share this night together
Could I hold you close beside me
Could I hold you for all time
Could I could I have this kiss forever
Could I could I have this kiss forever, forever

I don't want any night to go by
Without you by my side
I just want all my days
Spent being next to you
Lived for just loving you
And baby, Oh by the way

Could I hold you for a lifetime
Could I look into your eyes
Could I have this night to share this night together
Could I hold you close beside me
Could I hold you for all time
Could I could I have this kiss forever
Could I could I have this kiss forever, forever


FINE

It's Fine
Fine, Fine, Fine, Fine, Fine

It's Alright

Had a dream last night
And the world stopped turning
But your madness, it kept on
Guess I wasn't too bright
And I really wasn't learning
Should have seen it all along

All those sweet, sweet kisses and those sweet red roses
They convinced me that it was you
I made you exclusive
Now it's so conclusive
That you wasn't doing it too

If you'd told me from the start that you're playing around I would have been fine
It would have been fine
Then I wouldn't be doing this I would have had a good time
If you'd told me from the start that you're playing around it would have been fine
Then I would have played too and I guess I would have had a good time

Something didn't feel right
And I wish I knew it
I just could not see your games
I got respect for you
And you put me through it
Why would you bring me so much pain

I would steal them for you
As I did adore you
While my dogs would chew you out
Tried to be so nice on those lonely nights
But I should have figured you out

If you'd told me from the start that you're playing around it would have been fine
It would have been fine
Then I wouldn't be doing this I would have had a good time
I would have had a good time
If you'd told me from the start that you're playing around it would have been fine
It would have been you baby
Then I would have played too and I guess I would have had a good time

Baby you're so fine
You are the one that I saw
You are so fine
Your love was sent from above
Oh you're mighty fine
You're fine-fine, fine-fine, fine-fine, fine-fine, fine-fine
You are the one that I love
Your love was sent from above
You're fine-fine, fine-fine, fine-fine, fine-fine, fine
Fine
You are the one that I love
Fine
Your love was sent from above
You're fine-fine, fine-fine, fine-fine, fine-fine, fine

If you'd told me from the start that you're playing around it would have been fine
If you told me
Then I would have played too and I guess I would have had a good time
Feel good time, feel good time, feel good time, feel good time
If you'd told me from the start that you're playing around it would have been fine
Had a real good time, boy now
Then I would have played too and I guess I would have had a good time
I guess I would have had a good time
If you'd told me from the start that you're playing around it would have been fine
It would have been fine, boy
Then I would have played too and I guess I would have had a good time
If you'd told me from the start that you're playing around it would have been fine
It's fine, it's fine, it's fine
Then I would have played too and I guess I would have had a good time
Fine, fine, fine, fine, fine
If you'd told me from the start that you're playing around it would have been fine
Then I would have played too and I guess I would have had a good time


IF YOU SAY MY EYES ARE BEAUTIFUL

If you say my eyes are beautiful
It's because they're looking at you
And if you could only see yourself
You'd feel the same way too
You could say that I am a dreamer
Who's had a dream come true
If you say my eyes are beautiful
It's because they're looking at you

If you wonder why I'm smiling
It's because I'm happy with you
And the warm sensations touch my heart
And fill me through and through
I could hold you close forever
And never let you go
If you say my eyes are beautiful
It's because I just love you so

Now, my heart is an open door
Won't you come inside for more
You give love so sweetly now
Take my love take me completely now
If you say my eyes are beautiful
It's because they're looking at you
And my eyes are just the window
For my feelings to come through
And by far you are more beautiful
Than anything I ever knew
If you say my eyes are beautiful
If you say my eyes are beautiful
If you say my eyes my eyes are beautiful

It's because, it's because, they're looking at you


ONE MOMENT IN TIME

Each day I live
I want to be a day to give the best of me
I'm only one but not alone
My finest day is yet unknown
I broke my heart for every gain
To taste the sweet I face the pain
I rise and fall yet through it all this much remains

I want one moment in time
When I'm more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heart beat away
And the answers are all up to me
Give me one moment in time
When I'm racing with destiny
Then in that on moment of time
I will feel I will feel eternity

I've lived to be the very best
I want it all no time for less
I've laid the plans
Now lay the chance here in my hands

Give me one moment in time
When I'm more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heart beat away
And the answers are all up to me
Give me one moment in time
When I'm racing with destiny
Then in that on moment of time
I will feel I will feel eternity

You're a winner for a lifetime
If you seize that one moment in time
Make it shine

Give me one moment in time
When I'm more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heart beat away
And the answers are all up to me
Give me one moment in time
When I'm racing with destiny
Then in that on moment of time
I will be I will be
I will be free....oh
I will be I will be free....


WHATCHULOOKINAT

It's time for you to strike back
They're lookin' at you (well well well well well....)
Whitney Houston (ooh...ooh...n'oooh....)
Muhammad 2 G
They're watching your every move (Bobby...)
They're watching you

Chorus:
Why you lookin' at me

You been telling lies on me
(Tell me, Tell me, Tell me)
Whatchulookinat
(Tell me, Tell me, Tell me)

See I don't understand
Why you keep peepin' me
When you don't even like me
You're after me and my man
Don't think you're stressing me
'Cause your lies don't excite me, no no

(Never thought)
Never thought, Never thought
(Never knew)
Never knew that you would do this to me
Do this to me
(Try to ruin me) Ruin me
(Be my enemy) Be my enemy
(Never thought)
Never thought, Never thought, Never thought
(That you) That you
(Would act as if you're cool with me)
So why you lookin' at me

Chorus

Oh you know when you're wrong
Don't wanna respect my song
But it's okay 'cause either way
My following is real strong
You try so hard to show the whole world what I do
Now I'm turning the cameras back on you
Same spotlight that once gave me fame
Trying to dirty up Whitney's name
No, no

(Never thought)
Never thought, Never thought, Never thought
(Never knew)
Never knew that you would do this to me
Do this to me
(Try to ruin me) Try to ruin me

C'mon, Uh:
Messin' with my reputation
Ain't even got no education
Trying to mess with my concentration
Don't even have a clue of what I'm facing
Oh you know you need to stop it
Defaming my name for a profit
God is the reason my soul is free
And I don't need you looking at me

(Don't get mad at me) Don't get mad
('Cause I'm still gonna be) Still gon' be me
(Tell me, Tell me, Tell me)

Whatchulookinat

Look at yourself


TELL ME NO

Reaching for my dreams
And you're so quick to say what I can't do
You criticise my actions
But I don't see you standing in my shoes
I'm going the wrong way
I'm doing the wrong things
Every word just gives me fuel
So c'mon c'mon c'mon c'mon c'mon c'mon c'mon

Chorus:
And tell me no
And I'll show you I can
Tell me no
I dig my feet right in
Tell me no
Just tell me that I can't win
So c'mon I'm sure I'll prove you wrong c'mon and go
Tell me no....

For every step I take
You're right there trying to block my next move
And if you're making me feel bad
Then tell me then do you feel good
I'm just human
All I'm doing is what my heart tells me I should
So c'mon c'mon c'mon c'mon c'mon c'mon c'mon

Chorus

No no no no no no
It motivates me more and more
And I think it's time you know
You've given me something to work for
And I can't wait for the day
I can rub things in your face
I ain't gon' stop 'til I'm done
I reach the top
I'm number one
But every time you try and tell me no
[Every time you try and tell me no]
It only makes me keep on keeping on

Chorus

[Carlos Santana guitar to fade]

[C'mon I'm sure I'll prove you wrong c'mon and go]
[Tell me no]

My Love

Some girls just wanna spend guys' money
Live their lives chasing the milk and honey
Silver lines their every fantasy
But you're lucky cause that ain't me, no

Most girls think guys are all the same
(Well...)
Not true so I can't take the blame
(My my)
I'll love you through the joy and pain
Even the coldest Georgia rain

See my love is like an open sky
(Open Sky)
See my heart is like a river wide
(River wide)
No my world would never ever run dry
It runs over for you and I
(You and I)
See my love is deeper than the sea
And sweeter than a pretty melody
So tell everybody that you're glad you got me
You can trust in my love
My L-O-V-E
(My love, My love, My)

Some think that love is just a word
(Just a word)
Because of all the things they've heard
(Things they heard)
They think they've gotta close their hearts
Can't see the light, they're so in the dark
But I know I got a real good man
Who loves me the best he can
That's why I'm here faithfully
cause you do the same for me

See my love is like an open sky
See my heart is like a river wide
(Like a river wide)
No my world would never ever run dry
It runs over for you and I
(My love my love my)
My love is deeper than the sea
Sweeter than a pretty melody
(Deep - Sweet - Melody)
So tell everybody that you're glad you got me
(Glad you got me)
You can trust in my love
My L-O-V-E
My love my love my

You gotta go through
The fire
The rain
The rain
Take the joy
Take the joy and endure the pain
Never give in
Give In
Don't give up
Don't give up
They can try but they'll never ever break my love

Sweet, sweet love
(Sweet, sweet love)
Sweet, sweet love

See my love, my love

See my love is like an open sky
(Open Sky)
See my heart is like a river wide
(River wide)
No my world would never ever run dry
(Oh, yeah)
It runs over for you and I

See my love is deeper than the sea
And sweeter than the pretty melody
So tell everybody that you're glad you got me

LOVE THAT MAN

Things just ain't the way that they used to be
Back in the day when a man meant security
After been working hard all week
Baby kick back and throw up your feet
Let me fix you a little treat
Say it might be a little bit sweet

But he's worth it
He deserves it
May not be perfect
He's all the man I need
He's ready and willing
Gives me the feeling
And whenever we're together
I know I'm where I belong

Is it just the way he looks into your eyes
Love that man
It's the love he gives that makes you fantasize
Love that man
It's the time he takes to show you that he cares
And he's always there
Don't you love that man

I know
Things they ain't the way they used to be
When a woman and a man worked hard to be
Happy in love and stayed together
Let's stay that way forever
When you get into a fight
Just try and work it out
Never give up on him
That's not what love's about
Stay true to your feelings
And remember all the things he's done for you

Is it just the way he looks into your eyes
Love that man
It's the love he gives that makes you fantasize
Love that man
It's the time he takes to show you that he cares
And he's always there (he's always always there)
Don't you love that man

Is it just the way he looks into your eyes
Love that man
It's the love he gives that makes you fantasize
Love that man
It's the time he takes to show you that he cares (I do, I do)
And he's always there (he's always always there)
Don't you love that man

Better know I'm talking about that old school love
That everlasting feeling
Can't never be too much
Somebody loves you heart and soul
Hold on (hold on) don't stop (don’t stop)
Better never let him go

Is it just the way he looks into your eyes
Love that man
It's the love he gives that makes you fantasize
Ooh, Ooh, that man I do
It's the time he takes to show you that he cares (hey yeah)
And he's always there (he's always always there)
Don't you love that man

Is it just the way he looks into your eyes
Well I do, Well I do, Ooh
It's the love he gives that makes you fantasize
I love that man
It's the time he takes to show you that he cares
And he's always there (he's always there)
Don't you love that man (I love that man)

Is it just the way he looks into your eyes
Looks into my eyes - I love that man
It's the love he gives that makes you fantasize
I love that man
It's the time he takes to show you that he cares (I do, I do)
And he's always there (whenever we're together)
Don't you love that man


TRY IT ON MY OWN

I'm wiser now
I'm not the foolish girl you used to know
So long ago
I'm stronger now
I've learned from my mistakes which way to go
And I should know
I put myself aside to do it your way
But now I need to do it all alone

And I am not afraid to try it on my own
I don't care if I'm right or wrong
I'll live my life the way I feel
No matter what I'll keep it real, you know
Time for me to do it on my own
Yeah yeah, mmm, yeah yeah

It's over now
I can't go back to living through your eyes
Too many lies
And if you don't know by now
I can't go back to being someone else
Not anymore
I never had the chance to do things my way
So now it's time for me to take control

And I am not afraid to try it on my own
I don't care if I'm right or wrong
I'll live my life the way I feel
No matter what I'm gonna keep it real, you know, oh lord
Time for me to do it

Oh I start again go back to one
I'm running things in my way (my way)
Can't stop me now, I've just begun
Don't even think about it
There ain't no way around it
I'm taking names, for what is mine
Yes I'm gonna take my turn
It's time for me to finally stand alone, stand alone

I am not afraid to try it on my own
And I don't care if I'm right or wrong
I'll live my life the way I feel
No matter what I'm gonna keep it real, you know
It's time for me to do it
See I'm not afraid

I am not afraid to try it on my own
And I don't care if I'm right or wrong
I'll live my life the way I feel
No matter what I'm gonna keep it real, you know
It's time for me to do it
On my own
Hey
On, on my Own

UNASHAMED

Oooh....

Whoa
Whoa
Whoa

If I change my mind
If I change my faith
Every time a stop light signalled
Each time I made mistakes
I don’t think that I
Would be where I am today
I live my life without regret
What you see is what you see is what you see is what you get

And I’m
Unashamed of the life I lead
Unashamed of the strength of my needs
Of choices I’ve made
Of the love that I’ve saved
Of things I have done
My belief in the One

(Unashamed) Unashamed of the words of my friends
I know who they are
Make mistakes make amends
Follow my instincts, my star
On my sleeve I wear my heart
Unashamed
Unashamed

Adding up my life
It totals all my dreams
I'm counting all my blessings
And the gifts I have received
Still there's always someone
Something to overcome
Took all my life to understand
That I am what I am who I am
Unashamed

Unashamed of the life I lead (Whoa)
Unashamed of the strength of my needs (Whoa)
Of choices I’ve made (Yea)
Of the love that I’ve saved (love that I saved)

My belief in the One

Unashamed of the words of my friends (Whoa)
I know who they are (Whoa)
Make mistakes make amends (Whoa)
Follow my instincts, my star
On my sleeve I wear my heart
Unashamed

Do you
You wanna know how it goes
Do you wanna control how I feel
Do you wanna stay in my life
Then listen here and listen good
You got to get it got to get it got to get it right
Unashamed

Unashamed of the life I lead (Whoa)
Unashamed of the strength of my needs - Say what you want (Whoa)
Of choices I’ve made
Of the love that I’ve saved
Of things I have done
My belief in the One

Unashamed of the words of my friends (Whoa)
I know who they are (Whoa)
Make mistakes make amends (Whoa)

YOU LIGHT UP MY LIFE

So many nights
I'd sit by my window
Waitin' for someone
To sing me a song
So many dreams
I kept deep inside me
Alone in the dark
But now you've come along

And you light up my life
You give me hope
To carry on
You light up my days
And fill my nights
With song

Rollin' at sea
Adrift on the waters
Could it be finally I'm turning for home
And finally a chance
To say I love you
Never again to be all alone

'Cause you
You light up my life
You give me hope
To carry on
You light up my days
And fill my nights
With song

'Cause you
You light up my life
You give me hope
To carry on
You light up my days
And fill my nights
Fill my nights with song
With song

You light up my life
You give me hope
To carry on
You light up my days
And fill my nights
With song
It can't be wrong
When it feels so right, Ooh
'Cause You
You light up my life
My Life
My Life
My Life


THE FIRST NOEL

The first Noel
The angel did say
Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay
In fields where they lay tending their sheep
On a cold winter's night that was so deep
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel

They looked up and saw a star
Shining in the the East beyond them far
And to the earth it gave great light
And so it continued both day and night
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel

Jesus, Oh yea
Christ is
Born Is The King of Israel

Oh
Jesus
Christ is born
Born is the King of Israel
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel

Jesus
The first Noel
Born is the King of King of
Yeah, Yeah
Christ is born
Hallelujah
He is born
Born is the King of all


THE CHRISTMAS SONG

Ooh, Yeah...
Oh, Lord

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up like Eskimos

Everybody knows
A turkey and some mistletoe
Help to make the season bright
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow
Will find it hard to sleep tonight

They know that Santa's on his way
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh
Everybody's mother's child is gonna spy
To see if reindeer really know how to fly

And so I'm offering this simple phrase
From kids from 1 to 92
Although it's been said many times many ways
Merry Christmas
Happy Hanukkah
Happy Kwanzaa
Merry Christmas to all of you

Merry Christmas to everyone

ONE WISH

If there were no presents
Waiting on Santa's sleigh
What would I wish for Christmas
And if Frosty the snowman
Were melting away
I would wish for hope and unity
On Christmas day

If I had one wish
For Christmas
There would be joy and peace here on earth
If I had one wish
For Christmas this year
We would all come together as one

If Rudolph and his reindeer
Ran into delays
I'd still hope for joy this season
And if somehow Santa
Got lost on his way
I would try to find
A way to smile
Smile on Christmas day

If I had one wish
For Christmas
There would be joy and peace here on earth
If I had one wish
For Christmas this year
We would all come together as one

Oh, yeah
You know it ain't about all those material things
(No, no)
What you gotta think about
Is the love Christmas brings

If I had one wish
For Christmas
There would be joy and peace here on earth (Ooh, Ooh, Ooh)
If I had one wish (just one, just one)
For Christmas this year
That we'd all come together as one

Come together as one

If I had one wish (Ooh)
For Christmas
There would be joy and peace here on earth (If I had one, If I had one)
If I had one wish (If I had one wish)
For Christmas this year
That we'd all
We'd all
Come together as one
Ooh
As one, yeah


OH HOLY NIGHT

Oh holy night
The stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear Saviour's birth, oh yes it is
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
'Til he appeared and the soul felt it's worth
The thrill of hope
The weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks
A new and glorious morn

Fall on your knees
Oh hear the angel's voices
Oh night divine
Oh, Oh night when Christ was born
Oh night
Oh holy, holy night
Oh night divine
Fall on your knees
Oh hear the angel's voices
Oh night divine
Oh, oh night
Oh, Christ was born
Oh night
Oh holy night
Oh night divine

Hmm


I'LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS

I’m dreaming tonight
Of a place I love
Even more than I usually do
And although I know
It’s a long road back
I promise you

I’ll be home for Christmas
You can count on me
Please have snow and mistletoe
And presents under the tree

Christmas eve will find me
Where the love light gleams
I’ll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams

Oh, Yeah

I’ll be home for Christmas
You can count on me
Please have snow and mistletoe
And presents under the tree

Christmas eve will find me
Where the love light gleams
I’ll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams
If only, Yeah, well now
If only only only
If only in my dreams
If only
Well well well, Lord
If only
If only in my dreams

NOTHIN' BUT LOVE

Ooh
Oh baby

Here I sit by my window
Thinking 'bout all things that I've been through
There were times when I never
Thought I would get to where I got to
Help with angels to guide me
Some who just violated my love
Now this is my chance to say
Ain't got nothin' but love

For my family that raised me
Shout out, shout out
And my teachers that done praised me
Shout out, shout out
To anyone who tried to hate on me, yeah
Shout out, shout out
Even the ones who tried to break me
Even the ones who tried to take me down

Chorus:
There's been haters since this world's been going 'round
Nothin' but love
Why they take our dreams and try to crush 'em down
Nothin' but love, nothin' but love
I ain't even trying to hold onto that now
Nothin' but love, nothin' but love
Ain't got nothing but, nothing but love for ya
Nothin' but love, nothin' but love

I could hold onto pain
But that ain't what my life's about
I ain't blaming nobody
If I ain't got my stuff worked out
I got a lot for myself
Ain't gonna regret anything I've done
I just wanna sing my song
Ain't got nothin' but love

For all the players on the street
Shout out, shout out
To all my ghetto doing your thing
Keep on, keep strong
To all my exes that done wronged me
Stepped on me, can't hold me down, no

Chorus

To all the givers and the takers
To my crew from way back when (way back when)
To the goers and the stayers (oh yeah)
And the ones that I ain't met
For myself for sticking with me (for myself for sticking with me)
For the ones I'm missing up above (oh)
Anyone who's ever been a part of me
Ain't got nothin' but love
Nothin' but, nothin' but
I got nothin' but love

Chorus

Ain't got nothin' but, nothin' but love for ya
Nothin' but love, nothin' but love

CALL YOU TONIGHT

Oh, oh
Oh, mmm
Oh, oh
Oh, mmm yeah

The stars must be aligned tonight
I believe this has to have a meaning
Lightning had to strike tonight
'Cause the two of us are finally meeting
In this place at this time
And I feel safe when I look in your eyes
I feel like I know you from another life
And it makes me wish I wasn't so pressed for time

Chorus:
I can't catch my breath
'Cause you take it away
The best writer in town
Could not find words to say
How there's so many things
I wanna get to know
I wish that I could stay
But I gotta go, so
I'm call you tonight
I will baby
Just as soon as I get time alone
I'm call you tonight
I will baby
Just as soon as I get home

That's the way it goes in life
You get busy when you just don't wanna
There's never enough time day or night
You have to make it so baby I'm gonna
Make a way to connect
'Cause your face is one I can't forget
I feel like I know you from another life
And it just makes me wish I wasn't so pressed for time, oh

Chorus

Oh, destiny, I believe in it
Meant to be, don't you see it's possible
That with this kind of magic anything can happen
And if you wanna know
Then stay by the phone
You'll stay by the phone, oh

Chorus


I LOOK TO YOU

As I lay me down
Heaven hear me now
I'm lost without a cause
After giving it my all
Winter storms have come
And darkened my sun
After all that I've been through
Who on Earth can I turn to

Chorus:
I look to you
I look to you
After all my strength is gone
In you I can be strong
I look to you
I look to you
And when melodies are gone
In you I hear a song
I look to you

About to lose my breath
There's no more fighting left
Sinking to rise no more
Searching for that open door
And every road that I've taken
Led to my regret
And I don't know if I'm gonna make it
Nothing to do but lift my head

Chorus

My levees are broken (Oh Lord)
My walls have come (Coming down on me)
Tumbling down on me (Oh the rain is falling)
The rain is falling (Whoo)
Defeat is calling (Set me free)
I need you to set me free
Take me far away from the battle

Shine on me

I look to you

A SONG FOR YOU

I've been so many places in my life and time
I've sung a lot of songs
And made some bad rhymes
I've acted out my life on stages
With ten thousand people watching
Well, but we're alone now
And I'm singing this song to you

I know your image of me
Is what I hope to be
I've treated you unkindly
But darling can't you see
There's no one more important to me
Baby can't you see through me
We're alone now
And I'm singing this song to you

You taught me precious secrets
Of a true love withholding nothing
You came out in front
When I was hiding
But now I'm so much better
And if my words don't come together
Listen to the melody
'Cause my love is in there hiding

I love you in a place
Where there's no space or time (space or time)
I love you for my life, dear Lord
You are a friend of mine
And when my life is over
Remember when we were together (together)
We were alone
And I was singing this song for you

This song is for you
This song, this song
This song is for you
This song, this song
This song is for you
This song, this song
This song is for you, you, you, you
You, you, you, you, you, you

I love you in a place, my dear friend
Where there's no space or time
I love you for my life, ah
You are a friend of mine
And when my life is over
Remember when we were together
We were alone (we were alone)
And I was singing this song to you
We were alone
Yeah and I was singing this song to you
We were alone
Yeah, and I was, yeah, singing this song to
Oh yeah, singing this song
I was singing this song, it's for you
Ooh


I DIDN'T KNOW MY OWN STRENGTH

Lost touch with my soul
I had nowhere to turn
I had nowhere to go
Lost sight of my dream
Thought it would be the end of me
I thought I'd never make it through
I had no hope to hold on to
I thought I would break

Chorus:
I didn't know my own strength
And I crashed down, and I tumbled
But I did not crumble
I got through all the pain
I didn't know my own strength
Survived my darkest hour
My faith kept me alive
I picked myself back up
Hold my head up high
I was not built to break
I didn't know my own strength

Found hope in my heart
I found the light to life
My way out the dark
Found all that I need
Here inside of me, oh
I thought I'd never find my way
I thought I'd never lift that weight
I thought I would break

Chorus

There were so many times
I wondered how I'd get through the night
I thought I took all that I could take

Chorus

I was not built to break, no no
I got to know my own strength


WORTH IT

Chorus 1:
This for the lovers holding hands in the car
This is for the lovers no matter where you are
This is for you (it's for you, it's for you, it's for you)
This is for you (it's for you, it's for you)
This is for the lovers just getting on their feet
This is for the lovers 'bout 20 years deep
This is for you (it's for you, it's for you, it's for you)
This is for you (it's for you, it's for you)

It's a beautiful thing
When it's shared between two
The most beautiful thing about it
That it's so much more than you
There ain't nothing in the world like
Being with your lover
Nothing in the world like
Seeing one another
Happy with the one you need the most, yeah ah

I know somebody's gonna make love to this song tonight (tonight, tonight)
I know somebody's out of town and they're calling home tonight
Let me tell you what they're saying right now, they're saying

Chorus 2:
It ain't hard to tell
When it's something real
You can have the world
All you want is them
Even when you're in a crowd
And you spot 'em from a mile
And that's when you know
Love is worth it
When it's going wrong
And you never give up
When you're on the phone
You never hang up
Even when you're feeling down
They can always make you smile
And that's when you know
Love is worth it

This for the lovers holding hands in the car (holding hands in the car)
This is for the lovers no matter where you are (no matter where you are)
This is for you (it's for you, it's for you, it's for you)
This is for you (it's for you, it's for you)
This is for you baby

Some people feel it
They let it show
Some people miss it
They let it go
Some people doubt it
I'm gonna tell you now
They don't know a thing about it
That's why they doubt it
Some people give it
Some people take it
Some people try to
But they can't fake it
That's why when it's official
You just can't walk away
And you can trust me when I say

I know somebody's gonna make love to this song tonight (tonight, tonight)
I know somebody's out of town and they're calling home tonight
Let me tell you what they're saying right now, they're saying

FOR THE LOVERS

To all the lovers in the place, love, love, lovers in the place
This song is for you baby, this song is for you
To all the haters in the place, hate, hate, haters in the place
I ain't singing to you baby, I ain't singing to you

It's been a long crazy week, all I want is a little time
Lose my hands and my feet, let it go tonight
Leave the stress at home
Tell the drama no
You ain't gonna kill my vibe, oh no
I look at you, you look at me, and you already know
What I want, what I need, so meet me on the floor
I can feel your love, when our bodies touch
If anyone is feeling like me tonight

Chorus:
Now throw your hands up
For the next three minutes it's about the lovers (you know it, you know it)
Baby stand up
If you're single but you're looking for another (you know it)
Ladies tell your man you love him (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
Fellas tell your girl you love her (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
So throw your hands up
For the next three minutes it's about the lovers (about the lovers)

The thing about, the ones that, are looking down on you and me
Love is in the here and now and I'm completely free
Life is way too short, you might as well get yours, Lord knows I'm doing me
So all the lovers in the place, ah, this song is for you baby, this song is for you
To all the haters in the place, I ain't singing to you baby, I ain't singing to you, c'mon

Chorus

And if your lover ain't around
That don't mean you can't get down (you know it) alright, c'mon (you know it) hey
And if you came here all alone
Find someone and hold them close (you know it) alright, yeah (you know it)
So throw your hands up, yeah, and baby let me see you stand up, ah
And if you're single it don't matter, no, 'cause this song is for everyone who believes in love

Chorus

To all the lovers in the place, love, love, lovers in the place
This song is for you baby, this song is for you (it's about the lovers)
To all the haters in the place, hate, hate, haters in the place
I ain't singing to you baby, I ain't singing to you (you, you, you, you)


I GOT YOU

Adlibs:
Ooh

Akon:
Konvict, konvict

Adlibs:
Whoo
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

When the love is strong
And it comes from the heart
Ain't no man strong enough
Ain't no time long enough
To tear it apart
And that's what we've had
Believe it or not
So on the final day
After all the hurt and pain
We'll end up on top
So I won't cry 'cause you're going away
'Cause the chemistry we got, it don't fade
I won't be wishing for better days
'Cause deep inside I know
Our love stays the same
You gotta know

Chorus:
No matter where you are
You got me
Baby, near or far
You got me
Our love will never fade
You got me
So let me hear you say
Baby I got you
I'll be there, I'll be there
No matter what
Baby I got you
I'll be there, I'll be there
No matter what (there)
'Cause I got you baby

Yeah, I'll never lie
'Cause you are the reason
That my heart is beating
And I am alive
Before you go (before you go)
Look in my eyes (oh no)
You can't be replaced (no)
I'm down to wait (oh)
The rest of my life
Oh, you gotta know

Chorus

I'll hold you up
When you just can't stand
I'll make you fly
When you think that you can't
By my side forever
Baby that's the plan
I'll be your everything
I'll be your everything
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
I got you
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Whoa

Chorus

Adlibs:
Say you got me
I want you baby
Say you love me
I need you baby
I got you baby
Oh, oh, you got me
I'll be there, I'll be there
I'll be there for you
I'll be there for you
I love you baby
Love you darling
I'll be there, I'll be there, there
Say you'll be there
Say you will, say you will, say you will
I'll be there, I'll be there


SALUTE

Adlibs:
Eh, eh oh

You say you wanna walk away
You ain't got nothing to say
I salute you, yeah
Go on out the door now you take care
No more tears to shed
What, you expecting me to beg
Well I'm not, I'm done
So when you leave just close the door behind you

'Cause I'm feeling kinda taller than you (lately)
I'm feeling kinda stronger than you (oh lately)
I'm feeling kinda better than you
And I know just what to do
I feel like doing my hair (my hair)
I feel like calling some of my friends (some of my girlfriends)
I feel like going to a club and partying

Chorus:
'Cause I'm a soldier girl in this world
I stand alone, I can be strong
I've walked the miles, I made it home
It's good to know without you I made it
Soldier girl in my world
I took the fall, now I stand tall
For the pain and all, I made it through
And now all I got to say to you
Salute (eh, eh)
Salute (eh, eh)

You think you know everything
And you think that your sh-- don't stink
Well it do, hey
And when it comes to me you don't have a clue
Took me all of these years
To realize that you don't belong here
I can do better
You say I'll never do better
Yeah right, whatever

'Cause I'm feeling kinda taller than you (lately)
I'm feeling kinda stronger than you (oh baby, lately)
I'm feeling kinda better than you
And I know just what to do
I feel like doing my hair (my hair)
I feel like calling some of my friends (my girlfriends)
I feel like going to a club, do some partying

Chorus

(Oh) So don't call it a comeback, no
(Oh) I've been here for years
(Oh) Through all the drama and the pain
(Oh) And all of the tears
(Oh) Time to stop this rollercoaster
(Oh) See I want to get off
(Oh) And start moving mountains, swimming seas
(Oh) And climbing over walls

Chorus

I salute you (eh)
I salute you (eh)
Salute
Salute (eh)
Salute (eh)
I salute you (eh)
Go on take care (eh, eh)
Go on out the door now, take care (eh)
