Are You Using Me? Lyrics

Artist : VANDROSS, LUTHER
Album : I Know

Wait a minute
Let's try something different
This is Luther
With the masters at work

Last night I had some trouble sleeping..

[1] - Are you, are you, are you using me?
Are you, are you, are you using me?
Are you, are you, are you using me?
Are you, are you, are you using me?

No more will I let it be
You called his name out in your sleep
You're doing things so suspiciously
And I think that you're using me, yeah

Don't hang on me for security
Love is never free
Are you using me?

[Repeat 1]

You pretended like we were friends
I was blinded by sentiment
You complicated what love should be
And I could swear that you're using me

I keep seeing things I shouldn't see
I've been watchin' you
Are you using me?

Are you, are you
Are you using me?

Listen, talk to me, talk to me, talk to me
Ooh, come on now and talk to me, talk to me
Hey talk to me, talk to me
Hey talk to me, talk to me

For my money, for my money
For my money, for my money
For my money, for my money
(Tell the truth)
For my money, for my money

[Repeat 1]

For my body, for my body
For my body, for my body
For my body, for my body
For my body, for my body

Don't hang on to me for security
Love is never free, tell me are you

Using, using me, using, are you using me
Using, using me, using, are you using me?

I keep seeing things I should not see
I've been watching you, are you using me?

One time, one time (one time, one time)
One time, one time (one time, one time)
One time, one time (one time, tell me)
One time, one time (It's my desire)
Don't be such a liar

[Ad lib until fade]

Are You Mad At Me? Lyrics

Artist : VANDROSS, LUTHER
Album : I Know

I was lost until the day I found you
And I know you know
There's not a thing for you that I wouldn't do
But, yesterday was rough on me
I was under the weather
So my dear, I didn't have much to say

And I rushed you off of the phone last night
So I called you back to apologize
But your line stayed busy through the night, you see
And it makes me wonder
Are you mad at me?

I was right to fall in love this way
And one thing's for sure
The angels smiled on me
When you came my way
So my dear, tonight's the night
It's gonna be special
I can't wait to see the face of my love

But even though I tried, sorry I was late
And I understand that you couldn't wait
But you're pulling back, honey I can see
And it makes me worry
Are you mad at me?

I wish I could be perfect for you
Can't you see how hard I try?

When you talk to me I can hear the pain
When I look in your face I can see the strain
And I can hear the cries of the willow tree
Something's wrong I know it
Are you mad at me?

[Ad lib until fade]

Now That I Have You Lyrics

Artist : VANDROSS, LUTHER
Album : I Know

You found me when I was alone
You held me and you made my heart your home
I sit around and dream
And there's no one else I see
Cuz there's no one else for me
I don't feel like crying

[1] - I have no tears
Cuz I have no reason to cry
Love is on my mind
And my heart's no longer blue
Now that I have you

I don't let anyone tell me what to do
How to love, who to love
They don't know you like I know you
This is so natural, it's hard to believe
People all around me
And there's no one else I see
Cuz there's no one else for me
I don't feel like crying

[Repeat 1]

I have the world, and I have no fears
And I know where my happiness is
Now that I've got you to care
Now that you've got me forever
Everything I don't want is gone
And I know I can't live without your love

All the things I wanted now
Are starting to be true
And all the dreams I ever dreamed
Are coming now that I have you
Love is on my mind
And my heart's no longer blue
Now that I have you
Oh, now that I have you
Now that I have you

Grown Thangs Lyrics

Artist : VANDROSS, LUTHER
Album : Luther Vandross

[Intro]
Oh yeah, oh
Oh yeah

What good is the money
When lately we've been missing each other
Cuz we've got work and kids, you know how it goes
Monday through Friday, 9 to 5
We spend most of the time chasing that dough

But not tonight, we're gonna both get fly
Call your momma, tell her come over
So we can have quality time
Cuz it's been too long since I held you in my arms
I can't wait no more, I'm ready to oooo

[1] - You make me wanna
Do thangs, do thangs, them grown thangs
Do thangs with you

Tonight we gon' forget our worries
Put the kids to bed
I'm going out instead with you

Steppin' out with you
I'm steppin on out with you, darling

Girl put that "celly" down
Don't even peek at your pager now
Just chill, relax, the kids will be cool
Grab two more Cosmos, we ain't thinkin' about tomorrow
We're in a club full of people
But it feels just like me and you

My baby's looking hot tonight
Catching everybody's eye
Look at them starin', but I ain't carin'
Cuz I know you're mine
We should do this more often
Got a fella feelin' kinda flossy
I can't wait to make your body go ooh, ooh, ooh

[Repeat 1]
[Repeat 1]

(You know how it goes)
(Keep chasin' that dough)

I'll ring the bell like I used to do
Hold the door for you, let you through
Take your hand and talk to you
Make you know you're my star
I'm gonna woo ya (yeah yeah)
Say pretty words to ya (yeah yeah)
Send chills right through ya (oh yeah)
And remind you how loved you are

[Repeat 1 until fade]

Bring Your Heart To Mine Lyrics

Artist : VANDROSS, LUTHER
Album : Luther Vandross

Why am I not surprised, I see it in your eyes
You're just not happy with your life
Running from guy to guy
Living another lie when you should be mine

I saw you on the block today
Was gonna speak, but I walked away
Couldn't find a single thing to say
Down the street the thought had still remained
Girl he must be insane
How could he treat you that way, oh

Just cuz he wants to make love
Doesn't mean that he's in love with you
And I really hope you hear me this time
Maybe one day you'll wake up
Then you'll have to face up to the truth

I don't want to be a hater
But he really needs to raise up off you
And I hope you understand it tonight
I don't care what it takes girl
There's too much at stake girl
No mountain's too high to climb
To bring your heart to mine

Why do we play this game
Love can't be contained
I've got to make my move, oh yeah
I can feel the flames
Whenever you're close to me
I don't know what to do

I'll wait long as I can for you
Give all that I am for you
I know he's not the man for you
In my soul, I got plans for you
I'll be holding on (Yeah)
Cuz I know that he'll be gone, ooh

Just cuz he wants to make love
Doesn't mean that he's in love with you
And I really hope you hear me tonight
Maybe one day you'll wake up
Then you'll have to face up to the truth

I don't want to be a hater
But he really needs to raise up off you
Girl I really hope you hear me this time
I don't care what it takes girl
There's too much at stake girl
Just give me some kind of sign
And I'll bring your heart to mine

Girl, I know sometimes
That you feel like the sun don't shine
But if you look real deep inside
You'll realize you should be mine

Just cuz he wants to make love
Doesn't mean that he's in love with you
Won't you try to understand me tonight
Maybe one day you'll wake up
Then you'll have to face up to the truth

I don't want to be a hater
But he really needs to raise up off you
Girl, I swear that what I'm saying it right
I don't care what it takes girl
There's too much at stake girl
I'll come for you anytime
To bring your heart to mine

Just cuz he wants to make love
Doesn't mean that he's in love with you
I really hope you hear me tonight
Maybe one day you'll wake up
And give me your love
It's killing me but I'm trying
To bring your heart to mine

Can Heaven Wait Lyrics

Artist : VANDROSS, LUTHER
Album : Luther Vandross

Quarter after seven, got a phone call
Telling me to get here quick
Said your girl is in a bad situation
They don't know if she's gonna make it

As I hurry to be by her side
I ask a thousand times, why oh why
There's no rhyme or reason in my life
With you lying here this way

I'd give anything just to trade places with you
So I'm begging heaven down on my knees
To help you make it through

[1] - Tell me can heaven wait
Can heaven wait just one more night
Tell me what it's gonna take
To keep you with me in my life

Giving up the shame of my other life
Now I'm seeing things in a whole new light
Lord, I vow to change if you just make it right
Can heaven wait one night

Thinking back on times that I've wasted
I should have cherished every day
All the different flavors that I tasted
Can't compare to you, no way

As I reminisce by your side
Tears of guilt are streaming from my eyes
All the things I did that weren't right
Wish I could apologize

I'd give anything if I could trade places with you
So I'm beggin' heaven down on my knees
To help you make it through

[Repeat 1]

I'm gonna stop the world, reverse the time
Do whatever it takes to keep you alive
Heaven has to wait one more day

Baby, take my breath so you can breathe
I need you here so don't you leave
Heaven has to wait

[Repeat 1 until fade]

Say It Now Lyrics

Artist : VANDROSS, LUTHER
Album : Luther Vandross

I hope you hear this cuz I'm about to say it now

Guess I'm to blame and it's just a shame
Cuz I had the chance to tell you what you meant
But I lived my life thinking I had time
And that in my mind I'd get to it

Now you've gone away, not a single day goes by
When I don't think about it
Your spirit's all around, I can say it now
I hope you hear this

Now it's a shame that I found out the hard way
And it ain't the same
Cuz you never ever got to hear me say
That I love you, cuz I waited too late
So oh, I've got to tell everybody
Don't make the same mistake

[1] - It's alright to say I love you out loud
And it's all good, so don't you keep it inside
Let it out, do it today
No no no, don't you wait
Cuz it just might be too late
To say I love you

Don't walk a mile inside my shoes
Cuz if you do, you're gonna regret it
Don't take it lightly thinking they might be
Here or there tomorrow

Why you wanna wait, communicate
Don't assume that they already know
How much, how much you're really feeling
And you really, really love them

Now it's a shame that I found out the hard way
And it ain't the same
Cuz you never ever got to hear me say
That I love you, cuz I waited too late
It's like I would tell anybody
Don't make the same mistake like I did

[Repeat 1]

Those three words make all the difference in the world
You might wait and miss your chance
So don't be scared to say what you're feeling
You can't turn back the hands of time
If you get the chance, do it right
Let it out, say it now
Say it

[Repeat 1]
[Repeat 1]

I'm ready
Ready to shout it out, shout it out loud
So ready
Oh how I wish I could tell you right now
But I waited too late
So today I won't make the same mistake, no
I won't do it, and if I get the chance I'll say it

[Repeat 1]
[Repeat 1]
[Repeat 1]

It's alright

Album : Luther Vandross

So many times I've seen
So many people's dreams
Lost and washed away
Out to the sea, yeah

I said "No, not I"
Pain would surely pass me by
Happening to them, but not to me, yeah

Hearts get broken all the time
Never used to worry about things like this
But the trouble is (This time it's mine)
Now I'm worrying (This one is mine)
See the problem is the heart is mine

Love would be all I'd need
How naive could I be
Trusting other people with my care, yeah

Never thought I'd have to be
One of love's casualties
Up until now my belief was that love was fair

Hearts get broken all the time
But I never worried 'bout things like this
But the trouble is (This time it's mine)
I keep worrying (This one is mine)
See the problem is the heart is mine

This time my heart's breaking
This time my love's failing
I'm trying hard not to be bitter now

I never dreamed that the broken heart would be mine

Hearts get broken all the time
You think it's love, but it never really is
Never could imagine a thing like that (I wouldn't worry)
But the trouble is (This time it's mine)
Got me worrying (This one is mine)
See the problem is the heart is mine
This is mine, this is mine, yeah

Hearts get broken all the time
Never cared a doggone thing about that (I didn't worry)
But the trouble is (This time it's mine)
And the problem really is (This one is mine)
See the whole thing is the heart is mine

This time it's mine
This one is mine
The heart is mine

This time it's mine
This one is mine
The heart is mine

This time it's mine
This one is mine
The heart is mine

How Do I Tell Her Lyrics

Artist : VANDROSS, LUTHER
Album : Luther Vandross

[1] - How do I tell her
I don't wanna be here anymore
Nothing she did
I just don't feel the way I did before
How do I tell her
I don't wanna be here anymore
Nothing she did
I just don't feel the way I did before

I'm doing all I can to try and understand
Why my feelings faded away
She's been nothin' but good to me
I don't wanna hurt her but I must be free
I can't stay in this love
How do I say goodbye

[Repeat 1]

She pretends she can not see
The love is gone from me
She carries on as if it is what it was before
But I don't love her anymore
I have to let her know
That I must let her go
I can't stay in this life
How do I say goodbye

[Repeat 1]

Oh, I don't know what to do about it
Gotta tell her, gotta tell her, gotta tell her
Oh, there's no way to go around it
I've got to tell her now
But I don't know how

Listen, listen baby
Listen closely baby
I just gotta tell you
All the love we once had is through

Listen, listen baby
Listen closely baby
I don't wanna be with you anymore
I can't stay, I can't stay

[Repeat 1]
[Repeat 1]
[Repeat 1]

Any Day Now Lyrics

Artist : VANDROSS, LUTHER
Album : Luther Vandross

Any day, you'll be gone, oh yeah
Any day, you'll be gone

Any day now
I will hear you say goodbye my love
Then you'll be on your way
Then my wild beautiful bird, you will have flown
Any day now, I'll be alone
I know that, hey, I know that

Any day now
When the clock strikes go, you'll call it off
And then my tears will flow
Then the blue shadows will fall all over town
Any day now, love will let me down
Cuz you won't be around
No baby now, yeah

I know I shouldn't wanna keep you
If you don't wanna stay
Until you're gone forever
I'll be holding on for dear life
Holding you this way
And I'm begging you to stay

Any day now
When your restless eyes meet someone new
And to my sad surprise
Then the blue shadows will fall all over town
Any day now, I won't last for long
Cuz any day, you'll be gone
Then any day, you'll be gone
I know, I know that

You'll be gone, you'll be gone, you'll be gone
Yeah, mercy, any day now
Any day, you'll be gone
Mercy, yeah
Any day, you'll be gone

If I Was The One Lyrics

Artist : VANDROSS, LUTHER
Album : Luther Vandross

I see the way he treats you
I feel the tears you cry
And it makes me sad and it makes me mad
There's nothin' I can do, baby
Cuz your lover is my best friend
And I guess that's where the story ends
So I've gotta try to keep it inside
You'll never be, never be mine

[1] - But if I was the one who was loving you, baby
The only tears you'd cry would be tears of joy
And if I was by your side
You'd never know one lonely night

If it was my arms you were running to
I'd give you love in these arms of mine
If I was the one in your life

If I could have just one wish
I'd wish that you were mine
I would hold you near, kiss away those tears
I'd be so good to you, baby
You're the one I want next to me
But I guess that's just not meant to be
He's there in your life, he's sharing your nights
I'll never be, never be, never be right

[Repeat 1]

I want to reach out and feel you beside me, beside me
Right here, right now, right beside me baby, baby
And take you in my arms right now
And scream I love you right out loud
And then someday I'll pray I'll find
I'll find the strength to turn to you and say

[Repeat 1]

If I was the one, if I was the one, the one
If I was the one in your life

Let's Make Tonight The Night Lyrics

Artist : VANDROSS, LUTHER
Album : Luther Vandross

Livin' day to day, the same old things
Enough to make you want to scream
Limited time, border line
Peace of mind is all you need
But I know a place far away
From all the noise and crowded streets
If ya jump in the car, it ain't that far
The ride with me is free

[1] - Let it flow, let it go, let me get your coat
Baby let it be me
Let me open that door, let me get your seat
Show a little bit of chivalry
Let me kiss you right there
Smellin' your hair, let me hold your hand
Play some soul
Baby let me know (I wanna be your man)

[2] - Let's make tonight the night
That we ride underneath the stars so high
Let's make tonight the night
That we fall in love if we think it's right
Let's make tonight the night
That we both decide what it's gonna be
Let's make tonight the night
That you fall in love with me finally

I remember when I used to sit
And wish that it would rain
Knowin' the sun would come to stay
And chase the clouds away
Ya gotta know that somethin' beautiful
Is always on the way
And deep in your heart
You feel the spark of love and everything's okay

[Repeat 1]
[Repeat 2]

Finally you'll say you love me
I betcha betcha you do
I betcha you do yeah

Finally tonight you're gonna be in love with me
Fall in love with me, yeah
Let's make tonight the night
Let's make tonight the night
Let's make tonight the night
Let's make tonight the night

[Repeat 1]
[Repeat 2 until fade]

Like I'm Invisible Lyrics

Artist : VANDROSS, LUTHER
Album : Luther Vandross

You talk about me as if I'm not there
You don't even whisper cuz you just don't care
I stand there and listen to my life go by
And at times I wonder why I even try

Well I try because I like to finish what I start
And I have faith it can get better tomorrow
But it won't if you keep treating me
Like I'm invisible

[1] - Say that you won't treat me
The way you're treating me
Say that you won't
I see you but you just keep looking right through me
Like someone you don't even see
Like I'm invisible

You brag to your friends how much I must want ya
You said I was someone you could do with or without
You're so confident that I'd never leave you
No wonder you're surprised that I am walking out

Well, I have to leave no matter how sad it might be
Because this hurt's become my reality
And I won't let you keep on treating me
Like I'm invisible

[Repeat 1]

Well I finally got the nerve to move on
Cuz a fly kind of guy like me
Surely deserves more, much more
My new love can see what's inside of me
And she told me to thank you
For the good love that you blew, and oh

I wish you could see the way she looks at me
She don't keep me insecure or treat me lovelessly
She don't hide me from her friends when we have company
And she never ever makes me feel
Like I'm invisible

And after we lay here, she wants me to stay here
I'm not just for making love then expected to leave
I'm not only someone used for helping her ends meet
And she'd never ever walk on by me
Like I'm invisible

Like I'm invisible

Are You There (With Another Guy) Lyrics

Artist : VANDROSS, LUTHER
Album : Luther Vandross

I'm standing on your doorstep
And I don't know what to do
Should I ring your doorbell or just walk away
My friends all say that you were never true
I'm hiding in the shadows

I hear the music coming out of your radio
Are you there with another guy instead of me
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)
I hear the laughter and there's something I've got to know
Are you there with another guy instead of me
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)

I only know I love you and I couldn't say goodbye
So if there's another, I don't want to know
If you should go, I would surely die
I'm hiding in the shadows

And I see two silhouettes in back of your window shade
Are you there with another guy when I am gone
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)
I can't believe you'd break the promises that you made
If you're there with another guy, I can't go on, oh no
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)

You would never leave me, hurt me or deceive me
I'm a fool to doubt you, worry so about you
Love requires faith, I've got a lot of faith but
(I hear the music coming out of your radio)

I only know I love you, and I couldn't say goodbye
So if there's another, I don't want to know
If you should go, I would surely die
I'm hiding in the shadows

Yeah, (In the shadows)
Really plotting, hiding in the shadows
I'm hiding in the shadows, yeah

(Umm pah pah, pity the girl)
Pity, pity
(Umm pah pah, pity the girl)
Umm pah pitty
(Umm pah pah, pity the girl)
Umm pah pah, pity pity
(Umm pah pah, pity the girl)

I hear the music coming out of your radio
Are you there with another guy instead of me
Oh no, don't tell me (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
No I can't believe it
I hear your laughter and there's something I've got to know
Are you there with another guy instead of me
Please don't say (Yeah, yeah yeah)
(It's a pity)

I hear the music coming out of your radio
(Umm pah pah, pity the girl)
(Umm pah pah, pity the girl)
(Umm pah pah, pity the girl)

No, I can't believe it
I hear the laughter and there's something I got to know
(Umm pah pah, pity the girl)
(Umm pah pah, pity the girl)
(Umm pah pah, pity the girl)

Yeah baby
Without my love, I pity the girl
(Umm pah pah, pity the girl)
(Umm pah pah, pity the girl)
Your radio
(Umm pah pah, pity the girl)
Oh yeah, yeah
Umm pah pah, pity the girl
(Umm pah pah, pity the girl)
(Umm pah pah, pity the girl)

Love Forgot Lyrics

Artist : VANDROSS, LUTHER
Album : Luther Vandross

Learn to love and you learn to survive
My mistake was thinking love wouldn't catch me
It was the story of my life
I awakened seeing with new eyes
I begged forgiveness, but love wouldn't hear me
Taught you to fear me, baby

Love forgot we used to be just fine
And love forgot about the tender times
Love forgot to ask you if you'd want to give me
Give me one more try
Maybe love forgot this time

Love can't love someone who breaks a vow
But I was not myself, my heart wasn't in it
I still loved you every minute
I could fix it if you show me how
You didn't hear it from somebody else, I told you
Praying you'd let me hold you

(I can't believe) Love forgot the power to forgive
(Impossible) And love forgot that we depend on it
(It couldn't be) Love forgot that it's the only way
Our poetry will ever rhyme
I think love forgot this time

But who would have ever known
I'd ever be tempted, but I'm hopin'
Love will show me what to do
Cuz if it was all so easy
Then anybody else coulda shown me
I don't understand how you wouldn't know
I never even meant it

(I can't believe) Did love forget this was the only time
(Impossible) Did love forget I tried to set things right
(It couldn't be) Did love forget to remember
That regret lives in this heart of mine
Maybe love forgot this time

(I can't believe) Love forgot the power to forgive
(Impossible) And love forgot that we depend on it
(It couldn't be) Love forgot that it's the only way
That poetry will ever rhyme
Maybe love forgot this time

Did you forget this time
Did you forget this time
Don't forget me now
Don't forget me now
Did you forget somehow
Did you forget somehow

If I Didn't Know Better Lyrics

Artist : VANDROSS, LUTHER
Album : Dance With My Father

I think sometimes I can read your mind
When you make things up I can tell you lie
I see the things that your man can't see
And I wonder what kind of man is he
The one who you say is your lover
Who you insist takes care of you under the covers
And who is there for you and loves you like no other
Then you kiss and tell me that you love me like a brother
[CHORUS]
If I didn't know better
I'd think that you were mine, you're with me all the time
If I didn't know better
I'd swear we're more than friends, you're touching me again
If I didn't know better
I'd think we were in love
Girl, do you wanna tell me something
Oh, oh, oh
I could be wrong about the things you say
But I don't rub up on my friends that way
You tell me that you've always been a flirt
But if it goes wrong, I could get hurt
But no, you insist it's harmless playin'
It's just a part of who you are, that it's just your nature
And that it's fine
You know I'm a friend, it's really nothing
You say that I'm just like a…
That I'm just like a brother
[CHORUS]
My idea of a friend is when you
Do a lotta things together and have a lotta fun
But my definition of love is different
You touch and hold each other
And you only want to be alone clinging to each other
Like you and he should be, but like you and I are
Well, I know it sounds crazy but…
[CHORUS]

Think About You Lyrics

Artist : VANDROSS, LUTHER
Album : Dance With My Father

So close to paradise, but closer than I should be
It's like I'm along for the ride, it happened unexpectedly
Promised myself that I wouldn't ever love again
But you make me feel something, my mind's always on you
I was standing in the rain (I thought about you)
I was riding on the train (I thought about you)
Feeling high like I seem to do
Every time I think about you
Saw two lovers start to kiss (I thought about you)
Had to hold back the tears (I thought about you)
Other girls no more exist
All because I think about you
Nothing seems to help, I don't even know myself
I'm trying not to think of you, but a heart does what it wants to do
Pass you by, see you smile and I must admit I get
So emotional, I think I'm falling for you
Bought a pillow for my room (I thought about you)
Heard Alicia sing a tune (I thought about you)
It sends my rocket to the moon
Every time I think about you
Right from this heart of mine (I thought about you)
I wanted you every time (I thought about you)
What I feel is so divine
And it's all because I think about you
But I'm constantly reminded
Reminded that you're only someone who I'd like to know
You don't know me, you're my private fantasy
You're with me, constantly in my mind
Had a lovely day today (I thought about you)
Wasn't hard to get through (I thought about you)
Seems to happen easily
Every time I think about you
Took a walk with myself (I thought about you)
Wish it could've been with you (I thought about you)
But every star in the sky came out for me
And it's all because I think about you

If It Ain't One Thing... Lyrics

Artist : VANDROSS, LUTHER
Album : Dance With My Father
(feat. Foxy Brown)

I coulda died when I found out
We couldn't live together peacefully
That's when it started and we nearly parted
Well, I was hoping not to see the day
We started getting in each other's way
Maybe it's better we don't live together
Things got strange
My space to chill become half the size
You became someone
I didn't even recognize
What's the matter now
What are you talking about
If it ain't one thing, it's another
If it ain't one thing, it's the other
Why you gotta put me down
What are you complaining about
If it ain't one thing, it's the other
If it ain't one thing, it's another
I got a yacht for a dinner cruise
The way you treated everyone was rude
I don't believe ya, you're such a diva
I told the waitress we wanted wine
You got upset because the girl was fine
You're complicated, but somehow we make it
I get tired
From all I have to do to keep you satisfied
Get no sleep
You call me in the middle of the night and weep
What's the matter now
What are you crying about
If it ain't one thing, it's another
If it ain't one thing, it's the other
Why you gotta fuss and shout
What are you screaming about
If it ain't one thing, it's the other
If it ain't one thing, it's another
I guess I can't see the world through your eyes
Pretty little brown eyes
Guess I don't understand
What goes on, goes on, goes on in your mind
What's the matter now
What are you talking about
If it ain't one thing, it's another
If it ain't one thing, it's the other
Why you gotta put me down
What are you fussing about
If it ain't one thing, it's the other
If it ain't one thing, it's another
What's the matter now
What are you talking about
If it ain't one thing, it's another
If it ain't one thing, it's the other
Why you gotta scream and shout
What are you complaining about
If it ain't one thing, it's the other
If it ain't one thing, it's another

Buy Me A Rose Lyrics

Artist : VANDROSS, LUTHER
Album : Dance With My Father

He works hard to give her all he thinks she wants
But it tears her apart 'cause nothing's for her heart
He pulls in late to wake her up with a kiss goodnight
If he could only read her mind, she'd say…
[CHORUS]
Buy me a rose, call me from work
Open a door for me, what would it hurt
Show me you love me by the look in your eyes
These are the little things I need the most in my life
Now the days have grown to years of feelin' all alone
As she sits and wonders if all she's doin' is wrong
'Cause lately she'd try anything just to turn his head
Would it make a difference if she said, if she said…
[CHORUS]
[BRIDGE]
And the more that he lives the less that he tries
To show her the love that he holds inside
And the more that she gives the more that he sees
This is the story of you…and me
So I bought you a rose on the way home from work
To open the door to a heart that I hurt
And I hope you notice this look in my eyes
'Cause I'm gonna make things right for the rest of your life
And I'm gonna hold you tonight, tonight
Do all those little things for the rest of your life

The Closer I Get To You Lyrics

Artist : VANDROSS, LUTHER
Album : Dance With My Father
(feat. Beyonce Knowles)

The closer I get to you
The more you make me see
By giving me all you've got
Your love has captured me
Over and over again
I try to tell myself that we
Could never be more than friends
And all the while inside
I knew it was real
The way you make me feel
Lying here next to you
Time just seems to fly
Needing you more and more
Let's give love a try
Sweeter and sweeter love grows
And heaven's there for those
Who fool the tricks of time
With hearts in love will find
True love
In a special way
The closer I get to you
The more you make me see
By giving me what you've got
Your love has captured me
Over and over again
I try to tell myself that we
Could never be more than friends
And all the while inside
I knew this was real (got to be real)
The way you make me feel (you know)
My baby, my baby, my baby, my love
Come a little closer so we can see into the eyes of love
Just a little a closer let me speak to you
I wanna tell you something
Here I am-- I just want you to come closer
Come a little closer let me whisper in your ear
'Cause I wanna tell you something
Move a little a little closer we can say for real
The way we feel about each other's lovin'…

Lovely Day Lyrics

Artist : VANDROSS, LUTHER
Album : Dance With My Father
(feat. Busta Rhymes)

When I wake up in the morning, love
And the sunlight hurts my eyes
And something strange without a warning, love
Bears heavy on my mind
[CHORUS]
Then I look at you
And the world is all right with me
Just one look at you
And I know it's gonna be
A lovely day…
…lovely day, lovely day, lovely day…
When the day that lies ahead of me
Seems impossible to face
When somebody else instead of me
Always seems to know the way
[CHORUS]
[BRIDGE]
It's gonna be a lovely day (it's gonna be)
It's gonna be today
It's gonna be a lovely day
Today I love the world and I love you
[CHORUS]
[BRIDGE]
It's gonna be today
A lovely day today
It's gonna be today
A lovely day today

Dance With My Father Lyrics

Artist : VANDROSS, LUTHER
Album : Dance With My Father

Back when I was a child, before life removed all the innocence
My father would lift me high and dance with my mother and me and then
Spin me around 'til I fell asleep
Then up the stairs he would carry me
And I knew for sure I was loved
If I could get another chance, another walk, another dance with him
I'd play a song that would never, ever end
How I'd love, love, love
To dance with my father again
When I and my mother would disagree
To get my way, I would run from her to him
He'd make me laugh just to comfort me
Then finally make me do just what my mama said
Later that night when I was asleep
He left a dollar under my sheet
Never dreamed that he would be gone from me
If I could steal one final glance, one final step, one final dance with him
I'd play a song that would never, ever end
'Cause I'd love, love, love
To dance with my father again
Sometimes I'd listen outside her door
And I'd hear how my mother cried for him
I pray for her even more than me
I pray for her even more than me
I know I'm praying for much too much
But could you send back the only man she loved
I know you don't do it usually
But dear Lord she's dying
To dance with my father again
Every night I fall asleep and this is all I ever dream

She Saw You Lyrics

Artist : VANDROSS, LUTHER
Album : Dance With My Father

Why did you tell your girlfriend you were hanging with the boys
She called me last night and I tried to cover for ya
She asked if I liked the flick that we all went out to see
I said, "ooo uh, it was nice"
She said, "Don't you lie to me"
You messed up you shoulda warned me first (she saw you)
I'm sad to tell ya
You shoulda told me 'cause you made it worse (she saw you) unlucky fella
You better take that credit card (she saw you) to Cartier
You better hope with all you got (she saw you)
She feels like forgiving you today
Too bad for you
You were out there trying to be a player, now she's gone, it's true
It's hard to feel that sorry for you
She saw you, now this is the end
Saw you kiss the very girl (who's supposed to be) only your friend
She's convinced you took her heart
And played with it like a toy
And from what I heard, you just might need you a lawyer
It's too late for feeling bad, you did not respect the girl
You tried to play around
And got caught with your pants down
You can't escape from what you've done (she saw you) your time is up
You're like a deer who's caught up in (she saw you) the headlights of love
You can't be too proud to plead (she saw you) she's gonna make you pay
Forgiveness is what you need (she saw you) she's too mad to let you get away
Looks bad to me
You were busy trying to be a player
Now she's gone, breathe deep
You can't be doing that creep, creep, creep, creep
She saw you, now this is the end
Saw you kiss the very girl (who's supposed to be) only your friend

Apologize Lyrics

Artist : VANDROSS, LUTHER
Album : Dance With My Father

Your love's never been better
So good it's a sin
But it's time for a decision
Is it me or him?
Before you make your mind up, hear me
I just want you to see things clearly
This should be about love, not money
Don't let him try to take you from me
I don't wanna have to apologize
I don't wanna feel I've been penalized
Just 'cause I can drive in a better car
Live in a bigger house just like a superstar
He says that I can only give you
Material things, but that's not true
You see my heart is rich with love for you
Don't let him make you doubt my love for you
Yeah, baby
I work hard for my money
No one gave it to me
But some fools think the deeper the pocket
The smaller the heart will be, not true
I'm only tryin' to share me with you
Look at all the lovin' we do
Find the meaning in the words I'm sayin'
I'm not just another player playin'
I don't wanna have to apologize (or give a damn)
And I don't appreciate being criticized (for who I am)
Just 'cause I can buy you a lotta things
Or take you anyplace
That's just what money brings
He wants you to believe that I'm tryin' to buy your love
'Cause that's what he would do
He thinks since he's a man with nothing
That he's got better love for you
No way
Tell him now, let him go
Or I can no longer be yours
Tell him how you feel about me
I can't keep standing on the side
Don't let him fill your mind with lies about me
Leave him with his fallacies
I don't care what bull he believes
Tell him that enough is enough
Just don't return a disbeliever
You've always been a willing receiver of my love
I don't think I have to apologize (I work for this)
I don't wanna feel like I'm penalized (for being rich)
Doesn't bother me where he thinks I stand
I'm bein' my true self
Just doin' what I can
He thinks I won you with materiality
But honey, you know that's not so
And even if he understood me
It's simply time for him to go---so let him go!
I don't wanna change you
'cause I'm in love with who you are
So I don't wanna apologize for bein' a superstar
Haven't I proved that I'm here for you?
What am I guilty of?
What did or didn't I do?
Maybe I can't be myself with somebody
Who believes such things are true
I'm losing self-respect from trying
I'm losing my desire too---I can't do it
I don't wanna have to apologize (or give a damn)
I don't wanna feel I've been penalized (for who I am)
Just 'cause I can buy you a lotta things
Or take you anyplace
That's just what money brings
He wants you to believe that I'm tryin' to buy your love
'Cause that's what he would do

Hit It Again Lyrics

Artist : VANDROSS, LUTHER
Album : Dance With My Father
(feat. Queen Latifah)

Well by now you know I'm insatiable
'Cause when you step to leave I want a full repeat, yeah
It's a miracle, you were right inside my head
If the feeling's nice, why not do it twice?
It is not against the law, no baby
I slave all through the week
And I need my release
I work hard so when I stop
I gotta get a little satisfaction for me
Hit it again
Don't care if I'm late
The world just has to wait
Hit it again, hit it again, baby
Hit it again
I loved it the first time
Sent chills up through my spine
Hit it again, hit it again, baby
Deep emotion ain't got nothing to do with it
And being in love ain't really got a thing to do with it
I hope you understand
But I can't worry if you don't, oh no
If I can't double up
It's like I didn't get enough
Call me greedy if you want, just do it
But it's something that will never change
I don't get no complaints
They know it when they ring my bell
That this could be a thing that could take a little while, well, well
Hit it again
Don't care if I'm late
The world just has to wait
Hit it again, hit it again, baby
Hit it again
I loved it the first time
Sent chills up through my spine
Hit it again, hit it again, baby
I declare the point to be
Once is not enough for me
Two time lovin' makes me smile
One time love just ain't my style
Repeat the love and I have found
More the second time around
It builds me up I love to love
And if I can't hit it again
It ain't natural
Hit it again
Don't care if I'm late
The world just has to wait
Hit it again, hit it again, baby
Hit it again
I loved it the first time
Sent chills up through my spine
Hit it again, hit it again, baby

Right In The Middle Lyrics

Artist : VANDROSS, LUTHER
Album : Dance With My Father

If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get the same old stuff
Life can treat you good, then turn as cold as ice
And believe me when I tell you
This thing called love, for sure, is like most things in life
Not all bad, not all good (it's just something that I believe)
Not all cold, not all hot (yeah, I like that)
Not all bitter, not all sweet (sounds all right to me)
So don't miss all the good, waiting for the best, there's still happiness
Right in the middle
Perfect love sounds real nice
But that never seemed to happen with any relationship of mine
It was always up and down, in then out
And after the last goodbye, I still didn't know what it was all about
You get disappointed if it ain't bliss all the time
And you get so annoyed if you can't feel the same every night
Not all bad, not all good (I'm tryin' to tell you that it's)
Not all high, not all low (not all high and not all low)
Not all heaven, not all hell (as far as I can tell)
It's not some prize you win, you don't have a thing to prove, just enjoy the groove
Right in the middle
'Cause I've learned when it comes to love, it's the exact same reality
That's why they say "Que sera, sera"
Which means whatever's gonna be is gonna be
Whatever's gonna be is gonna be…
Not all bad, not all good (I need somebody to understand)
Not all sunshine, not all rain
(you know that too much of a good thing is really no good)
Not all laughter, not all tears (I'm only trying to tell you)
To let your good times roll, keep your self-control, there's a lotta soul
Right in the middle

Once Were Lovers Lyrics

Artist : VANDROSS, LUTHER
Album : Dance With My Father

We shared a life, we shared a heart
But what we united seems to be breaking apart
It's a haunting pain, goes right to the core
Now we're dividing what's mine from what's yours
I'll keep the same old things I had when we met
And you'll keep what's yours 'cause that would only be fair
But what about the heart that we both created together?
[CHORUS]
We used to be the toast of the town
We used to have the best love of all
We had blue skies but they came falling down
What happened to us
You and I once were lovers
No cheating hearts and no one did wrong
So why did we break, can't say our love wasn't strong
But I know with time things that start to mend
So let's fix these hearts so they can't be broken again
You need a man who sees how lonely you've been
Don't worry, I will start all over and then
We will get back the heart that we both created together
[CHORUS]
Last night I cried but girl you were not here
So it was just a big waste of tears
But then I smiled, I heard your voice in my ear
Tellin' me you wish it could be like it was in the beginning
[CHORUS]

They Said You Needed Me Lyrics

Artist : VANDROSS, LUTHER
Album : Dance With My Father

Goodbye, so long
Were the last words from you
Seems like you're over
All the goodness we knew
You think that you're strong
You think that you don't
You don't need no one
Well, I was talkin' to some of your friends
Just to see how everyone was doin'
And they said you needed me
Said it was something you'd never admit
But it was hard to see you going through it
They said you needed me
Guess I'll suffer 'til I'm where I belong
I'm under the pressure
But I'll keep being strong
You say that you're strong
You say that you don't need anyone
What in the world are you telling your friends
I get confused every time I see them
They said you needed me
I know the people talk just for the thrill
But the fact of the matter is still
They said you needed me
Take your time, re-invent your mind
You'll feel better, you'll feel stronger
Then decide if I'm in your life
For forever or longer
You think that you're strong
You think that you don't
You don't need no one
Well, I was talkin' to some of your friends
Just to see how everyone was doin'
And they said you needed me
Said it was something you'd never admit
But it was hard to see you going through it
They said you needed me

Ordinary Day Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA CARLTON
Album : Be Not Nobody

Just a day,
Just an ordinary day.
Just trying to get by.
Just a boy,
Just an ordinary boy.
But he was looking to the sky.
And as he asked if I would come along
I started to realize
That everyday he finds
Just what he's looking for,
Like a shooting star he shines.

He said take my hand,
Live while you can
Don't you see your dreams lie right in the palm of your hand

And as he spoke, he spoke ordinary words
Although they did not feel
For I felt what I had not felt before
And you'd swear those words could heal.
And as I looked up into those eyes
His vision borrows mine.
And I know he's no stranger,
For I feel I've held him for all of time.

And he said take my hand,
Live while you can
Don't you see your dreams lie right in the palm of your hand
In the palm of your hand.

Please come with me,
See what I see.
Touch the stars for time will not flee.
Time will not flee.
Can you see?

Just a dream, just an ordinary dream.
As I wake in bed
And the boy, that ordinary boy
Or was it all in my head?
Did he asked if I would come along
It all seemed so real.
But as I looked to the door,
I saw that boy standing there with a deal.

And he said take my hand,
Live while you can,
Don't you see all your dreams lie right in the palm of your hand
In the palm of your hand,
In the palm of your hand.

Just a day, just an ordinary day
Just trying to get by.
Just a boy,
Just an ordinary boy.
But he was looking to the sky.

Unsung Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA CARLTON
Album : Be Not Nobody

if only I could get into that corner of your head
where things finally match and meet the standards that you set
oh how I wish I was the treasure that you were lookin' for
bet I would feel better if only I could find the door

I am cryin'
you aren't tryin'
I am melting away

I wait for the words on the tip of your tongue
I'm only as good as the last one
well you decide and I abide as my song goes unsung (yeah, yeah, yeah)

things are goin' crazy and I'm not sure who to blame
everything is changing and I do not feel the same
I'm slippin' through the cracks of floors I thought that were strong
I'm tryin' to find a place where I can feel like I belong

Well, I am cryin'
you aren't tryin'
I am melting away

[chorus]

If I could be the lesson that you learn, you learn if only
I could be the last one that love burns, it burns... yeah
if only I could get into that corner of your head
where things finally match and meet the standards that you set
oh how I wish I was the treasure that you were lookin' for
bet I would feel better if only I could find the door

Well, I am cryin'
you aren't tryin'
and I am melting away

[chorus]

A Thousand Miles Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA CARLTON
Album : Be Not Nobody

Making my way downtown
Walking fast
Faces pass
And I'm home bound

Staring blankly ahead
Just making my way
Making a way
Through the crowd

And I need you
And I miss you
And now I wonder....

If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass me by
'Cause you know I'd walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you
Tonight

It's always times like these
When I think of you
And I wonder
If you ever
Think of me

'Cause everything's so wrong
And I don't belong
Living in your
Precious memories

'Cause I need you
And I miss you
And now I wonder....

If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass me by
'Cause you know I'd walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you
Tonight

And I, I
Don't want to let you know
I, I
Drown in your memory
I, I
Don't want to let this go
I, I
Don't....

Making my way downtown
Walking fast
Faces pass
And I'm home bound

Staring blankly ahead
Just making my way
Making a way
Through the crowd

And I still need you
And I still miss you
And now I wonder....

If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass us by
'Cause you know I'd walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you...

If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass me by
'Cause you know I'd walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you
If I could
Just hold you
Tonight

Pretty Baby Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA CARLTON
Album : Be Not Nobody

You light me up and then I fall for you
You lay me down and then I call for you
Stumbling on reasons that are far and few
I'd let it all come down and then some for you

Pretty baby don't you leave me
I have been saving smiles for you
Pretty baby why can't you see
You're the one that I belong to
I'll be the embrace that keeps you warm
For you're the sun that breaks the storm
I'll be alright and I'll sleep sound
As long as you keep comin' around, oh pretty baby

And I know things can't last forever
But there are lessons that you'll never learn
Oh just the scent of you it makes me hurt
So how's it you that makes me better

[Chorus]

Why can't you hold me and never let go
When you touch me it is me that you own
Pretty baby oh the place that you hold in my heart
Would you break it apart again... oh pretty baby

[Chorus]

Pretty baby, why can't you see
Pretty baby, don't you leave me
Pretty baby, why can't you see
Pretty baby, don't you leave me,
Pretty Baby
My Pretty Baby
My Pretty Baby
Don't you leave me [fade]

Rinse Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA CARLTON
Album : Be Not Nobody

She'd do anything to sparkle in his eye
She would suffer, she would fight, and compromise
She's been wishin' on the stars that shine so bright
For answers to the questions that will haunt her tonight

She must rinse this all away
She can't hold him this way
She must rinse this all away
She can't love him this way

How she'd be soothed, how she'd be saved if he could see
She needs to be held in his arms to be free
But everything happens for reasons that she will never understand
'til she knows the heart of a woman will never be found in the arms of a man

[Chorus]

And if she runs away she fears she won't be followed
What could be the worse than leaving something behind
And as the depth of oceans slowly become shallow
It's loneliness she finds...
If only he was mine

She'd do anything to sparkle in his eye
She would suffer, she would fight, and compromise
She's been wishin' on the stars that shine so bright
For answers to the questions that will haunt her tonight

She must rinse him
She must rinse him
She can't rinse him
She can't rinse him
She can't, she won't, she must rinse him
She can't, she won't, she must rinse him
She must rinse this all away
She can't hold him this way
She must rinse this all away
She can't love him this way

Sway Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA CARLTON
Album : Be Not Nobody

my heart, your hands, gentle my friend
break me neatly, numb me sweetly

say you would, say you could
say you'd come and stop the rain
say you'd try and hold me tight
and you just give me away
make me high on lullabies
a melody for me to sway
say you would, say you could
and you don't do anything

come down heavy, try and steady
precious ladies, love you, love me...

[chorus]

hold my head up to the lies that you feed me
I'll fall under the spell you cast as you let me down

say you would, say you could
say you'd come and stop the rain
say you'd try and hold me tight
and you just give me away
make me high on lullabies
a melody for me to sway
make me high on lullabies a melody for me to sway

[chorus]

say you'd come and stop the rain...

Paradise Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA CARLTON
Album : Be Not Nobody

once upon a year gone by
she saw herself give in
every time she closed her eyes
she saw what could have been
well nothing hurts and nothing bleeds
when covers tucked in tight
funny when the bottom drops
how she forgets to fight... to fight

and it's one more day in paradise
one more day in paradise

as darkness quickly steals the light
that shined within her eyes
she slowly swallows all her fear
and soothes her mind with lies
well all she wants and all she needs
are reasons to survive
a day in which the sun will take
her artificial light... her light

and it's one more day in paradise
one more day in paradise
it's one more day in paradise
one last chance to feel alright... alright

don't pretend to hold it in just let it out
don't pretend to hold it in just push it out
don't you try to hold it in just let it out and
don't you try to hold it in you hold it in

[chorus]

once upon a year gone by
she saw herself give in
every time she closed her eyes
she saw what could have been

Prince Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA CARLTON
Album : Be Not Nobody

willing and able to run
I am
willing and able I'm able to come

and if I want for you now
would you come
would you run
would you bring it back around
oh, baby how

if it all went away
nothin' left to say
would you fight it or would you lay down
at the hand of your God could you see the light
oh my prince can't you see what's been found

willing and able to run
willing and able to come
I am willing, I'm willing

willing and able to run
I am
willing and able I'm able to come

Paint It Black Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA CARLTON
Album : Be Not Nobody

[Originally written by the Rolling Stones]

I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors anymore, I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes

I see a line of cars and they are painted black
With flowers and my love both never to come back
I see people turn their heads and quickly look away
Like a new born baby it just happens every day

I look inside myself and see my heart is black
I see my red door and it's heading into black
Maybe then I'll fade away and not have to face the facts
It's not easy facing up when your whole world is black

I wanna see it painted painted, painted black, oh baby
I wanna see it painted painted, painted black, oh baby

No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue
I could not foresee this thing happening to you
If I look hard enough into the setting sun
My love will laugh with me before the morning comes

I wanna see it painted, painted black, oh
Black as night, black as coal
I wanna see the sun blotted out from the sky
Painted, painted, painted black oh baby
Painted painted, painted black

Wanted Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA CARLTON
Album : Be Not Nobody

I have wandered far and wide
for something real something to die for
but I have found you and you do not see
all that is me all that is true

I am more than you will see,
I am more than you will need,
I am more than you will see,
more than wanted

as you float the flimsy surface
you should know life lies beneath it
don't pretend you feel what I feel for you
live illusion and i am real

[chorus]

I know, I know you like the way
you feel when I play
I know, I know you don't really
hear what I say
I know, I know you are waiting
for something to raid
I know, I know you wish you could be
more than you say

I have wandered far and wide
for something real something to die for
but I have found you and you do not see
all that is me all that is true and

[chorus]

more than you'll love, more than you'll hate,
more than you'll hold, more than wanted
more than you'll crave, more than you'll cherish,
more than you'll have, more than wanted

Twilight Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA CARLTON
Album : Be Not Nobody

[Verse 1]
I was stained, with a role, in a day not my own
But as you walked into my life you showed what needed to be shown
And I always knew, what was right I just didn't know that I might
Peel away and choose to see with such a different sight

[Chorus]
And I will never see the sky the same way and
I will learn to say good-bye to yesterday and
I will never cease to fly if held down and
I will always reach too high cause I've seen, cause I've seen, twilight

[Verse 2]
Never cared never wanted
Never sought to see what flaunted
So on purpose so in my face Couldn't see beyond my own place
And it was so easy not to behold what I could hold
But you taught me I could change Whatever came within these shallow days

[Chorus]
And I will never see the sky the same way and
I will learn to say good-bye to yesterday and
I will never cease to fly if held down and
I will always reach too high cause I've seen, cause I've seen

[Bridge]
As the sun shines through it pushes away and pushes ahead
It fills the warmth of blue and leaves a chill instead and
I didn't know that I could be so blind to all that is so real
But as illusion dies I see there is so much to be revealed

[Chorus]
And I will never see the sky the same way and
I will learn to say good-bye to yesterday and
I will never cease to fly if held down and
I will always reach too high cause I've seen, cause I've seen, twilight

[Verse 3]
I was stained, by a role, in a day not my own
But as you walked into my life you showed what needed to be shown
And I always knew, what was right
I just didn't know that I might
Peel away and choose to see with such a different sight

[Chorus]
And I will never see the sky the same way and
I will learn to say good-bye to yesterday and
I will never cease to fly if held down and
I will always reach too high cause I've seen, cause I've seen, twilight...

White Houses Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA CARLTON
Album : Harmonium

Crashed on the floor when I moved in
This little bungalow with some strange new friends
Stay up too late, and I'm too thin
We promise each other it's 'til the end
Now we're spinning empty bottles
It's the five of us
With pretty eyed boys girls die to trust
I can't resist the day
No, I can't resist the day

Jenny screams out and it's no pose
'Cause when she dances she goes and goes
Beer through the nose on an inside joke
And I'm so excited, I haven't spoken
And she's so pretty, and she's so sure
Maybe I'm more clever than a girl like her
Summer's all in bloom
Summer is ending soon

It's alright and it's nice not to be so alone
But I hold on to your secrets in white houses

Maybe I'm a little bit over my head
I come undone at the things he said
And he's so funny in his bright red shirt
We were all in love and we all got hurt
I sneak into his car's cracked leather seat
The smell of gasoline in the summer heat
Boy, we're going way too fast
It's all too sweet to last

It's alright
And I put myself in his hands
But I hold on to your secrets in white houses
Love, or something ignites in my veins
And I pray it never fades in white houses

My first time, hard to explain
Rush of blood, oh, and a little bit of pain
On a cloudy day, it's more common than you think
He's my first mistake

Maybe you were all faster than me
We gave each other up so easily
These silly little wounds will never mend
I feel so far from where I've been
So I go, and I will not be back here again
I'm gone as the day is fading on white houses
I lied, wrote my injuries all in the dust
In my heart is the five of us
In white houses

And you, maybe you'll remember me
What I gave is yours to keep
In white houses [x3]

Who's To Say Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA CARLTON
Album : Harmonium

Stand up straight
Do your trick
Turn on the stars
Jupiter shines so bright
When you're around they tell us slow down,
We're too young you need to grow
The speed's the key
And they don't know who we are

And who's to say that we're not good enough?
And who's to say that this is not our love?

Mother don't tell me friends are the ones that I lose
'Cause they'd bleed before you
And sometimes family are the ones you'd choose
It's too late now
I hold on to this life I found

And who's to say we won't burn it out?
And who's to say we won't sink in doubt?
Who's to say that we won't fade to gray?
Who are they anyway? Anyway they don't know

And you say we're too young, but maybe you're too old to remember
And I try to pretend but I just feel it when we're together
And if you don't believe me, you never really knew us
You never really knew

You and I, packin' up my room, we feel alright
But we're not welcome, soon
We'll be drivin', 'cause they don't know who we are
Who's to say we won't stay together?
Who's to say we aren't getting stronger?
Who's to say I can't live without you?
Who are they anyway? Anyway they don't know

And you say we're too young, but maybe you're too old to remember
And I try to pretend, but I just feel it when we're together
Who is to say?
And who is to say?
And who are they anyway?

Stand up boy, I shine so bright when you're around

Annie Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA CARLTON
Album : Harmonium

Watch her as she flew deep within the blue
A day out from the county I.C.U.
There's nothing you can do
Someone gently says to you
The doctor says that now it won't be long
I try and live up 'til the moment and I hope that I don't blow it
And what is it in me that she hears?
It's just a song she likes
Little arms around my neck
And a dying girl whispers in my ear

Tell me now can you feel it?
I've been keeping company with a ghost
She comes to me like a piece of summer
She comes to me on the days when I need it most

Well summer dies and nothing lasts forever
And you're so fine, the way you stand up to your fears
The summer dies and its just moments we have together
I'd give my bones for you to get a few more years
For you and I, oh Annie
More to life than trying to survive, oh Annie

My boyfriend took pictures of me as I held you
I travel alone and the loneliness brings me to tears
The summer dies and it's just moments we have together
I'd give my bones for you to get a few more years
For you and I, oh Annie
More to life than trying to survive, oh Annie

Stronger than the hands that hold you
You sing along to the song on the radio
If I drank too much when I am reckless
Just this once would you forgive this

And hold on, the days gone by
Tell me now can you feel it?
I can't keep this all to myself
She's elegant and she means it, no

Years for you and I, oh Annie
More to life than trying to survive, oh Annie
Watch her as she flew deep within the blue
Watch her as she slips away from you
I'll keep fingers crossed always for you

San Francisco Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA CARLTON
Album : Harmonium

I, I know what you did
Like a boy of summer gives his first kiss
Love, is dancing on my finger
He got to the heart of the matter and lingered
Now I'm walking with the living
I always liked Steinbeck and those old men whistling

We're back, we're back in San Francisco
We're back and you tell me I'm home

Talking in the Mission
Over coffee this is my utopia
Man, I'll be your lady
As the ocean rises, the sun is fading

We're back, we're back in San Francisco
We're back, we're back in San Francisco
We're back, we're back in San Francisco

And now I feel the ever after
Over red wine on the eve of summer
The buzz, the buzz of the city
As we settle in it's majesty
I, I know what you did
Like a boy of summer gives his first kiss

We're back, we're back in San Francisco
We're back and you tell me I'm home

You tell me I am home
You tell me I am home
You tell me I am home
Back in San Francisco

And I know what you did in San Francisco
I know what you did in San Francisco
San Francisco

Afterglow Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA CARLTON
Album : Harmonium

Just when the days start getting colder,
I walk the streets I never knew
There's some words I never told you,
The sound rings out like the truth

[Chorus:]
And if you could see what's come over me
Then you would know
Cause I'm walking free
The wind at my back
Bathed in afterglow

As I sit here in this dark room,
All I seem to feel is light
I see color,
I see the maroon in the blood of this life...
That's ours

[Chorus]

Watch the sun it paints an orange sky
Lay me down and feel the days gone by

Just when the days start getting longer
I walk the streets I never knew...
The sun comes out for you

[Chorus]

Private Radio Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA CARLTON
Album : Harmonium

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Gotta get a little
Gotta get a little

All the world has gone to bed
And I am drowning in it's silence
But a solitude is in my head, from you, baby

And if the silence was a song
Well, its rhythm grooves and it's a private radio
And on this night I did belong
In harmony

And you can't deny me
And you will oblige me
It's my melody

When the night comes
When no one knows
I can hear it
I've got my private radio

Find me out of my pillow
'Cause I'm lyin' here, but I am ready good to go
And on a whim I leave this town
Or not, I'll stay and chase the sun now

And you can't deny me
And you will oblige me
It's my melody

When the night comes
And no one knows
I can hear it
I've got my private radio

Catch me, not care
Can't call me later
Morning's risin'

All the world has gone to bed
And there's a sound inside my head
And in the dark inside my bed
And the melody that's in my head

(When the night comes)
There's a part of me no one will never know
(And no one knows)
And midnight comes and I know I'm on my own
(I can hear it)
There's a part of me no one will ever see
(I've got my private radio)
There's a part of me no one will ever leave be
(My private radio)
My private radio
My private radio

Half A Week Before The Winter Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA CARLTON
Album : Harmonium

Half a week before the winter
The chill bites before it comes
And I'm a child of the pleasure
That he brings before he runs

He sits behind a desk of mahogany
He whispers dreams into my ear
And though I've given him his empire
He delivers me my fear

The unicorns are riding high
Powerful in coats of white
I turn to look and burn my eyes
I carry on, I carry...
All the weight of empty promise
As I stand swallowed by the light
Flickering above the highway
I hold my head and know the streets are mine tonight

The vampires are growing tired
The coats of white all turn to red
My heart burns with desire
I carry on, I carry on

The unicorns are riding high
Powerful in coats of white
We turn to look and burn our eyes
I carry on, I carry
The vampires are growing tired
The coats of white all turn to red
My heart burns with desire
I carry on, I carry on
I carry on
I carry on
We carry on

C'est La Vie Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA CARLTON
Album : Harmonium

I've been taking what you've given
Now I'm thinkin' I've been livin'
The fantasy of your sweet smile

Sad as blue and blue as only
You can cast the color on me
Can you see my fire red
Ohh... Ohh...
C'est La Vie
C'est La Vie here in my lonely
C'est La Vie
C'est La Vie here in my lonely without him

Boy you swallow truth like honey
As you spew your lies upon me
Sweet and smooth as it goes down
Ohh... Ohh...
C'est La Vie
C'est La Vie here in my lonely
C'est La Vie
C'est La Vie here in my lonely without him

Oh say you, say me
Say always and forev'
'Ver more I'll be
Your perfect little sugar bride
Oh if you could see,
The truth within our perfect harmony,
Your melody is bringing me down

Ohh... Ohh...
C'est La
C'est La Vie
C'est La Vie
C'est La Vie
C'est La Vie here in my lonely
C'est La Vie
C'est La Vie here in my lonely without him
Without him

Boy you swallow truth like honey

Papa Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA CARLTON
Album : Harmonium

Look up
Look where you wanna be
Look left
Look where you left me

I should have known
By the ice in his eye
But you warmed me up in your so sweet demise and
Nestled in your calculated moonshine

Boy you give good...
Love, plastic love
You're a genuine wannabe
You got it all up your blue sleeve, your sleeve
Love, plastic love
You're a genuine wannabe
You got it all up your blue sleeve
But me

Papa oh papa tonight
Papa oh I'll be alright

Look left
Look where you wanna be
Look up
Look where you left me

I should have known
By the ice in his eye
But you warmed me up in your so sweet demise and
Nestled in your calculated moonshine

Boy you give good...
Love, plastic love
You're a genuine wannabe
You got it all up your blue sleeve, your sleeve
Love, plastic love
You're a genuine wannabe
You got it all up your blue sleeve
But me

Papa oh papa tonight
Papa oh I'll be alright

She Floats Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA CARLTON
Album : Harmonium

[intro: whale sounds]
Watching puddles gather rain
Theres no better place to lay
Shes as fine as dandelions blowing in the wind
Shes not thinkin' about anything...
She floats, she floats...floats

Wearing black patent Mary Janes
She steps out in to the rain
She's as dry as clear blue skies
Swallowing you whole
Got no secrets though I'm told
She floats, she floats...floats

Ahhh... ahhh...

She's as fine as dandelions blowing in the wind
Shes not thinking she's listening
She floats... She floats... Floats...
Floats...
She floats... She floats... Floats...
Floats...

The Wreckage Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA CARLTON
Album : Harmonium

Speeding
Into the horizon
Dreaming of the siren
Wishing for her broken glass on the highway
It could be so easy

The rhythm
Rhythm of an engine
Always makes me empty
I see the headlights coming at me
I can't help but wonder

Flying
Flying in slow motion
Wind through my hair
And ripping through the scenery, oh, the wreckage
It is my secret need

Speeding
Into the horizon
Dreaming of the siren
Wishing for her broken glass on the highway
It could be so easy

Nolita Fairytale Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA CARLTON
Album : Heroes & Thieves

I know, you know, we don't see
We sow our truth, wait patiently

I walk the streets with a song in my head
We ebb and we flow so
Got my toes on my pup at the foot of my bed
My heart always seems to know
Now take the glitz back, I want the soul instead
Cos I found some kind of fairytale

I used to
Hover outside my truth
Always worry of what I'd lose
Take away my record deal
Go on, I don't need it
Spent the last 2 years getting to what's real
And now I can see so clear
I hope you feel just like I feel
I found some kind of fairytale

Want a garden by the ocean tide
Because I lose my way searching for stage lights
Well, Stevie knows and I thank her so
Cos it's your seeds I sow
And now I know

Nolita flat on rent control
That's the life I choose
And you drag me to the fashion show
The poses that I see through
The movies in the afternoon

Cos I found some kind of fairytale
Nolita Fairytale
Ba da da da da da, Ba da da da da da
Nolita Fairytale
Ba da da da da da, Ba da da da da da

Nolita Fairytale
Nolita Fairytale
Nolita Fairytale

Hands On Me Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA CARLTON
Album : Heroes & Thieves

I first saw you at the video exchange
I know my heart and it will never change
This temp work would be alright if you'd call me
You'd call me
I lay awake at night for you
And I pray

We'd cross the deepest oceans
Cargo across the sea
And if you don't believe me
Just put your hands on me
And all the constellations
Shine down for us to see
And if you don't believe me
Just put your hands on me

The subway radiates with heat
We've barely met and still I cross the street to your door

We'd cross the deepest oceans
Cargo across the sea
And if you don't believe me
Just put your hands on me
And all the constellations
Shine down for us to see
And if you don't believe me
Just put your hands on me

Someday when our stories are told
They'll tell of a love like this
When our descendents are all growing old
1,000 years they'll be singing
Nah-nah, nah-nah, nah, nah, nah

We'll climb Tibetan mountains
Where we can barely breathe
I'll see the Dali Lama
I'll feel him blessing me
And all the constellations
Shine down for us to see
And if you don't believe me
Just put your hands on me
Your hands on me...

First saw you at the video exchange

Spring Street Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA CARLTON
Album : Heroes & Thieves

Nah, nah-nah-nah, nah nah nah
Nah, nah-nah-nah, nah nah nah

I was heading down to Spring Street with a suitcase in my hand
Filled with love and life and grand illusion,
I knew you'd understand
I left you by the stairwell
And your eyes were wet with tears
Mother you knew you had to let me go,
Even after all these years

And we sing
Nah, nah-nah-nah, nah nah nah
She said
Nah-nah-nahnah nah nah nah
Walk on
Nah-nah nah, nah, nah nah nah
You're alright
Nah-nah, nah, nah nah nah nah

And I found myself a new life
I've been living with some friends
We hold on to dreams and live like kings,
Like the days will never end
I left him by the statue and his eyes were filled with tears
Lover you knew you had to let me go
Even after all these years
And we sing

Nah-nahnah-nah nah nah nah
He said
Nah-nah, nah, nah, nah nah nah
Walk on
Nah-nah, nah, nah, nah nah nah
You're alright
Nah-nah, nah, nah nah nah nah

Everything changes friends become strangers
What we hold so dear slips away
The past keeps on fading,
But I'll never forget you
It's hard to see that you're a part of me
Even when we have to say

Nah-nah, nah, nah,nah nah nah
Walk on
Nah-nah, nah, nah nah nah nah nah
We sing
Nah-nah, nah, nah, nah nah nah
Well alright
Nah-nah, nah, nah nah nah nah

And I moved out of the city
To start a family of my own
When I look into my daughter's eyes,
I don't feel so alone
And as I walk her down to Spring Street
She holds on to my hand
Mother you knew my eyes would be wet with tears and now I understand

Nah-nah, nah, nah, nah nah nah
And I said
Nah-nah, nah, nah, nah nah nah
Walk on
Nah-nah, nah, nah, nah nah nah
Thank you
Nah-nah, nah, nah, nah nah nah
Walk on,
You're alright
Can't hold on
Nah-nah,nah, nah, nah nah nah

My Best Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA CARLTON
Album : Heroes & Thieves

Mmmmmmmmm

We scream and shout and try to make it last
Though it didn't work out,
I don't love you any less
My lover or friend,
I wont ever tell
Our secrets safe
An unspoken citadel

And in these broken times, well,
It's so easy to forget
So I sing to remind
Upon my shoulder you can rest
Cause I'll always give you my best

A sidewalk's path leads me to you
Though we don't look back,
We hold on to a truth

And in these broken times
I promise I will not forget
Though you're not mine
Upon your shoulder I can rest
Cause you always give me your best

Like a promise kept
It's like you never left
It's like you never left

And though it's been so long,
I can't ever seem to forget
All it takes is a song
And I could swear I hear your steps
Down the hall echoes a past
Thatleaves an ache,
It's never left
Cause I gave you my best

It's like you never left
It's like you never left
We scream and shout and try to make it last

Come Undone Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA CARLTON
Album : Heroes & Thieves

I've seen myself in a thousand faces
Strung out on life's path
I would add up what you mean to me
But I cannot do the math

And this fashionista's garden party
Well I had enough of that
Cause the only one I come undone for is you
Oh the only one I come undone for...

I'm a special lover sometimes
But you only touch a ghost
I'm a sycophantic courtier
With an elegant repost

Needless to say you're the one that I need
The most
Cause the only one I come undone for is you
Oh the only one I come undone
For is you
The only one I come undone for is you

I know I'm done
And now I see the truth
I know I'm done
I come undone for you
You've been gone so long,
Waiting here for you
You've been gone so long,
Come undone for you

There are people in this lifetime
That we should never meet
Cause to be here now without you, well,
My life's so incomplete

I tell you what you mean to me,
Maybe then you'll see
Cause the only one I come undone for is you
Oh the only one I come undone for is you
The only one I come undone for is you

The One Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA CARLTON
Album : Heroes & Thieves

Ahhh

Holiday and I come home
I hope to see this boy I know
I can't wait for us to be alone
Flippin' through the radio
We sing along to the indie show
The songs they play mean more than I can say

And the tape I made you,
Hope you think of me when it plays through
I'm kinda sad now that it's done
You think my time is for free
In all the ways you say to me,
Sweet versions of let's wait and see

You're always a golden boy
And I'm the girl that you enjoy
My parents say isn't he a gifted son
Time is always passing
By but still I have to wonder why
You can't come to tell me I'm the one

Summer goes and we have grown
We have our friends,
Live on our own
Still I'm not the girl you want me to be
Say gravity can bend the time,
Funny, I always liked your mind
But this whole thing is crushing me

But you're always a golden boy
And this girl's heart that you destroy
You smile at me and then you have your fun
Time is always passing,
Still, I give you another try
And hope that you will see that I'm the one

You say you're scared to get too close
Come let's see how it goes
I see you now at the show,
The 7th in,
The 7th row
Now you look at me
And see what I've known for so long
Sad that you could be so lovely and so wrong

Came to say that I moved,
I see your face you don't approve
Guess you could say that I'm already gone

But you'll always be my golden boy
And I'm the summer girl that you enjoy
Some melodies are best left undone

I feel the time pass away
But in my songs you will always stay
I don't need you to tell me I'm the one
I don't need you to tell me I'm the one

You'll never know that I was the one

Heroes & Thieves Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA CARLTON
Album : Heroes & Thieves

Well, disaster it strikes on a daily basis
And I'm looking for wisdom in all the wrong places
But still wanna laugh in disappointed faces
And you can't help me
I'm blinded by these

Heroes and Thieves at my door
And I can't seem to tell them apart anymore
Just when I figured it out
Darling it's you I'm without

Well I'm stubborn and wrong,
But at least I know it
I keep movin' along
And hope I can get through this
But maybe this song is the best I can do it
So I'm patiently waiting on these

Heroes and Thieves at my door
And I can't seem to tell them apart anymore
Just when I figure it out
Darling it's you,
Darling it's you oh,
Darling it's you

I'm without your comforting logic like,
These days are the ones I'll miss
And I seek a solitude
That I can't find without you

Seems like I'm getting closer somehow
A flicker of peace that I finally found
Thank you for believing in me now
Cause I do need it

Give me a year or two
And I'll mend my ways
And see these mistakes
When I see the truth,
Darling trust me, when I can see
I'll be coming back
I'll be coming back

Cause there are Heroes and Thieves at my door
And I can't seem to tell them apart anymore
Just when I figured it out
Darling it's you oh,
Darling it's you oh,
Darling it's you I'm without

This Time Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA CARLTON
Album : Heroes & Thieves

It's 4 a.m. and I'm wide awake
Waiting for my thoughts to fade
A flickering of all of my mistakes
And as the light starts creeping in
I slowly feel
The day I'm missing
But I wouldn't even know where to begin

Do I push to hard?
Or fall to fast?
The moment never seems to last
Will I stop long enough to know

Everybody burns
And when it starts to hurt,
I cry
I feel it in my veins
I just can't walk away,
This time

Your words circle in my head
Weigh so heavy on my chest
And I'm crushed by your expectation
I only want to do some good
Too dumb to know if I could
And I just wanna feel the days I'm in

Do I go to far,
Not far enough?
Why can't I keep my big mouth shut?
And do we lead the life that we should?

Everybody burns
And when it starts to hurt,
I cry
I feel it in my veins
I just can't walk away,
This time

Did I say to much again?
I'm just a girl in a panic
If I tell you my truth
Am I getting through?
It just seems I should confess
Who am I to pretend
This is more than I can carry

Everybody burns
And when it starts to hurt,
I cry
I hold my head up high
I know I'll be alright
This time
I feel it in my veins
I just can't walk away
This time
This time,
This time
This time,
This time

It's 4 am and I'm wide awake
Waiting for my thoughts to fade
It's times like these I see your face

Fools Like Me Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA CARLTON
Album : Heroes & Thieves

Beware the danger it lurks for those who get swept away
The dreamers get punished most by truth
They say it's all in a little ways
One reveals their love's gone away,
Love's gone away

When my hand was in your hand
My heart was pure
Now I see a different man
Rewriting memories
The dogs run down the beach
And all I'm left with
Is sand in my shoes,
Sand in my shoes

Fools like me
We love blindly
And the cracks don't count
It's gotta break in front of me

Now I recall that time at the caf©,
The thunderstorm outside
Words you could never say,
They hold the loudest tones
You say you'll write
But it's ink on a page,
Just ink on a page

Fools like me
Oh we love blindly
And the cracks don't count
It's gotta break in front of me

Tic toc the time
Distant look grows in your eye
But fools never ask
Afraid of what lurks in your mind
I always knew, somehow, always knew
I always knew the truth

Fools like me
Oh we never see
Cause the cracks don't count
It's gotta break in front of me
And it's breakin',
It's breakin',
It's breakin'
It's gotta break for me to see

At least I can say
I was not afraid
I loved you all the way
I'd pick the fool any day

Home Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA CARLTON
Album : Heroes & Thieves

Some people live in a house on the hill
And wish they were some place else
There's nobody there
When the evening is still
Secrets with no one to tell

Some I have known have a ship where they sleep with sounds of rocks on the coast
They sail over oceans five fathoms deep
But can't find what they want the most

Even now when I'm alone
I've always known with you
I am home

Some live in towns
Cardboard shack on concrete
All bluster and bustling life
They search for the color they can never quite see
Cause it's all white on white

Even now when I'm alone
I've always known with you
I am home
[repeat]

For me it's a glance and the smile on your face the touch of your hands,
And an honest embrace
For where I lay it's you I keep,
This changing world I fall asleep
With you all I know is I'm coming home,
Coming home

More Than This Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA CARLTON
Album : Heroes & Thieves

Cradling stones hold fire bright
As crickets call out to the moonlight
As you lean in to steal a kiss
I'll never need more than this

We all share the pain of our histories
But the ache goes away if you could see
This night under stars, well, I call it peace
If you say, I'll never need more than this

The trees grow so thick
You can barely see through
But the forest bestows the simplest of truths
You think you'll be happy if granted one more wish
But the truth is you'll never need more,
You'll never need more
You'll never need more than this

Want so much in this life,
There's so much to be
We sail through our youth so impatiently
Until we see
That the years move along
And soldiers and heroes come home
And they carry a song,

Don't live in forgotten times
May this always remind you
Of the sea under the skies blue looking glass
Let's make this our story, let's live in the glory
Time, it fades away,
Precious as a song
Cause someday we'll be gone

Cradling stones hold fire bright
As we watch the glow of the morning light
Someday our bones here they will lie, and so we sing

As the years move along and soldiers and heroes come home
And they carry a song
Let's make this our story,
Let's live in the glory
Time, it fades away,
Precious as a song
Cause someday we'll be gone

Come Back To Me Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA HUDGENS
Album : V

[Intro]
HaHa!
You all need to get ready to hear
The unbelievable,
Indescribable
Vanessa Hudgens.
Baby V!

(Baby Come Back)

Everyday, I try to play, another game
But my heart can't take it.
I try to find, another boy,
But all the while, I can't face it.
Why do I miss you so much?
I wanna stop this hurt inside
Oh baby please, give us one more try

(Baby Come Back)

I see you out with all your friends
Laughin' it up as you pretend
To have a good time, (good time)
I know cause I'm living the same lie (same lie)
So one of us has got to say
We can't keep living this same way
So I'll be the one
Yeah I'll say it, I'll say it, I'll say it, I'll say it again

Baby Come back to me
In my heart I still believe
We were meant to be…
Together so whatever it takes (Baby Come Back)
Baby come back to me
I should have never set you free
My baby
Come back (Baby Come Back)

I wanna call, but then I stall,
Cause after all, I just couldn't take it
Cause if your play was to push me away
You know that day, my heart you'd break it (Baby Come Back)
I know we made a mistake, (I do)
Can't you stop your foolish pride (Oh no)
And come back to me
Let's try, Let's try, Let's try, Let's try it again

Baby Come back to me (Come Back)
In my heart I still believe
We were meant to be…
Together so whatever it takes (Baby Come Back)
Baby come back to me
I should have never set you free
My baby
Come back (Baby Come Back)

[Bridge:]
You know you miss your baby V
And I can see that you think about me
So why do you act like you don't care
Like all this love between us isn't there
I know that you're upset
I know I did you wrong
I know that you want me to pay for all the pain I've caused
But in the end it all comes down to just one thing,
It's you and me
So I sing

Baby Come Back!

Baby Come back to me
In my heart I still believe
We were meant to be…
Together so whatever it takes (Baby V!)
Baby come back to me (Come Back)
I should have never set you free
My baby
Come back
(Baby Come Back!)

Let Go Lyrics

Artist : VANESSA HUDGENS
Album : V

The day's been long
I just got home
And work is driving me crazy
I could do up
I could go out
But I'm feelin too lazy
I wanna run
I wanna have fun
But I don't wanna work it
All I wanna do is go and kick it with my crew tonight

[Chorus]
All I wanna do is let go tonight
I'm feelin right
I just wanna forget about it
All I wanna do is let go tonight
Wind it up
Without my getup
All I wanna do is get down tonight
Move around tonight
Don't really care about it
All I wanna do is let go tonight
I'm feeling free
Tonight is just for me

I count on you
You're coming too
Yeah I'm hopin you feel it
Cuz at my best
And at my worst
Yeah you've already seen it
Let down your hair
The hell who cares
Gonna let it all out
All I wanna do is go and kick it with my crew tonight

[Chorus]
All I wanna do is let go tonight
I'm feelin right
I just wanna forget about it
All I wanna do is let go tonight
Wind it up
Without my getup
All I wanna do is get down tonight
Move around tonight
Don't really care about it
All I wanna do is let go tonight
I'm feeling free
Tonight is just for me

High heels just feels
Like a business stance
Make it hard to dance
Tight shirt, short skirt
Just hurt, Too much work
A fake up of make up
Never handled the wet
Cuz I wanna sweat
All I wanna do is kick it with my crew tonight

All I wanna do is let go tonight
I'm feelin right
I just wanna forget about it
All I wanna do is let go tonight
Wind it up
Without my getup
All I wanna do is get down tonight
Move around tonight
Don't really care about it
All I wanna do is kick it with my crew tonight

[Chorus X2]
All I wanna do is let go tonight
I'm feelin right
I just wanna forget about it
All I wanna do is let go tonight
Wind it up
Without my getup
All I wanna do is get down tonight
Move around tonight
Don't really care about it
All I wanna do is let go tonight
I'm feeling free
Tonight is just for me
