Angel Eyes Lyrics

Artist : FLACK, ROBERTA
Album : Roberta

Try to think that love's not around
Still it's uncomfortably near
My own heart ain't againin' no ground
Because my angel eyes ain't here

Angel eyes that old devil sent
They glow unbearably bright
Need I say that my love's mis-spent
Mis-spent with angel eyes tonight

So drink up, drink up all you people
And order anything you see
Have fun you happy people
The drink, and the laugh's, on me

Pardon me, but I gotta run
The fact's uncommonly clear
I gotta find who's now number one
And why my angel eyes ain't here.

I gotta find who's now the number one
And why my angel eyes ain't here.
'Scuse me while I disappear.

Tenderly Lyrics

Artist : FLACK, ROBERTA
Album : Roberta

The evening breeze caressed the trees tenderly
The trembling trees embraced the breeze tenderly
Then you and I came wandering by
And lost in a sigh were we

The shore was kissed by sea and mist tenderly
I can't forget how two hearts met breathlessly
Your arms opened wide and closed me inside
You took my lips, you took my love so tenderly

The shore was kissed by sea and mist tenderly
I can't forget how two hearts met breathlessly
And your arms opened wide and closed me inside
You took my lips, you took my love
You took my lips, you took my love so tenderly

Cottage For Sale Lyrics

Artist : FLACK, ROBERTA
Album : Roberta

Our little dream castle with every dream gone,
Is lonely and silent, the shades are all drawn,
And my heart is heavy as I gaze upon
A cottage for sale

The lawn we were proud of is waving in hay,
Our beautiful garden has withered away,
Where you planted roses,the weeds seem to say,
A cottage for sale.

From every single window, I see your face,
But when I reach a window, there's empty space.
The key's in the mail box the same as before,
But no one is waiting any more,
The end of the story is told on the door.
A cottage for sale.

Isn't It Romantic? Lyrics

Artist : FLACK, ROBERTA
Album : Roberta

Isn't it romantic?
Music in the night
A dream that can be heard
Isn't it romantic?

Moving shadows write the oldest magic word
I hear the breezes playing in the trees above
While all the world is sayin' you were meant for love

Isn't it romantic
Merely to be young
On such a night as this
Isn't it romantic?

Every note that's sung is like a lover's kiss
Sweet symbols in the moonlight
Do you mean that I will fall in love perchance?
Isn't it romance?

Isn't it romantic?
Music in the night
A dream that can be heard
Isn't it romantic?

Moving shadows write the oldest magic word
I hear the breezes blowin' in the trees above
While all the world is sayin' you were meant for love

Isn't it romantic
Merely to be young
On such a night as this
Isn't it romantic?

Every note that's sung is like a lover's kiss
Sweet symbols in the moonlight
Do you mean that I will fall in love perchance?
Isn't it romance?

Do you mean that I will fall in love perchance?
Isn't it romance?

My Romance Lyrics

Artist : FLACK, ROBERTA
Album : Roberta

I won’t kiss your hand, Madam,
Crazy for you though I am.

I’ll never woo you on bended knee,
No Madam, not me.

We don’t need that flowery fuss,
No sir, Madam, not for us

My romance
Doesn’t have to have a moon
In the sky

My romance
Doesn’t need a blue lagoon
Standing by;

No month of May,
No twinkling stars,
No hide away,
No soft guitars.

My romance
Doesn’t need a castle
Rising in Spain,

Nor a dance
To a constantly surprising refrain.

Wide awake
I can make my most fantasizing dreams come true.

My romance doesn’t need a thing but you.

Hazels Hips Lyrics

Artist : KHAN, CHAKA
Album : ClassiKhan

Hazel's hips are a concert of contours and curves
As she slips to and fro 'round the tables she serves
I buy six meals a day in my favorite cafe
'Cause they see Hazel that way

Hazel's eyes are divine and her hair is so fine

Yeah but her hips bring the tips

Hazel's hips have a rhythm so gently controlled
That her trips to the kitchen are a joy to behold
I love to just sit and gaze at the way Hazel sways
When she's carrying trays

Hazel's eyes are divine and her hair is so fine
Yeah but those hips bring the tips

Hazel takes me my soup, serves me my cup of tea
And my heart flips to see Hazels's smiling at me"
So I say "honey bunch can I have you for lunch?"
But Hazel just gives me a hunch

And says "don't hand me no line 'bout you think I'm so fine"
'Cause yes the tips
Ooh Hazel's hips

I Believe Lyrics

Artist : KHAN, CHAKA
Album : ClassiKhan

Ya know nothing is promised us
As we walk over this plain
It can be cruel and dangerous
So what have you to gain
By being so rough?
Haven't you had enough?
You've never done anything
To deserve how you treat yourself
You can't stop wondering
How you look to everyone else

Because I believe
When you look inside you don't like what you see
You need to realize that you could be
Anything
In this whole wide world

When you get tired of running from yourself
And running games
When you decide you want to grow
And be yourself again

To all your so-called friends
You're just a means to their ends
You're so misunderstood
Because you're kind they think you're weak
Try it again, I wish they would
They're gonna have to come through me

Because I believe
When you look deep inside and don't like what you see
You need to realize you could be
Anything

I believe
When you look deep inside and don't like what you see
You need to realize you could be
Anything, anything
In this whole wide world
Don't you know

Will You Love Me? Lyrics

Artist : KHAN, CHAKA
Album : Funk This

I used to think that I was happy
But I was just lying to myself
Made me believe no one would have me
So I put my poor heart on the shelf

Like a heatwave
Like a sud-den wind
Like a slap to the essence of my being
Boy you came in, like a sud-den wind
You know you blew me away
Away...

[Chorus:]
Will you love me
Will you be-the-one
Who is coming, coming to my rescue
Will you care for me
Will you com-fort me
Will you be the one
The one who's gonna rescue me

I feel like I was born just for you
I am so glad you came in time
Now that your here
I just adore you baby
To lose this love would be a crime

Like a heatwave
Like a sud-den wind
Like a slap to the essence of my being
Boy you came in, like a sud-den wind
You know you blew me away
Away...

[Chorus:]
Will you love me
Will you be the one
Who is coming, coming to my rescue
Will you care for me
Will you com-fort me
Will you be the one
The one who's gonna rescue me

[Music Interlude]

[Chorus:]
Will you love me
Will you be the one
Who is coming, coming to my rescue
Will you care for me
Will you com-fort me
Will you be the one
The one who's gonna rescue me

Will you love me
Will you love me
Will you love me
Will you love me
Will you love me
Will you love me
Will you love me
Will you love me

[Chorus:]
Will you love me
Will you be the one
Who is coming, coming to my rescue
Will you care for me
Will you com-fort me
Will you be the one
The one who's gonna rescue me

Castles Made Of Sand Lyrics

Artist : KHAN, CHAKA
Album : Funk This

Down the street you can hear her scream you're a disgrace
As she slams the door in his drunken face
And now he stands outside
And all the neighbours start to gossip and drool
He cries oh, girl you must be mad,
What happened to the sweet love you and me had?
Against the door he leans and starts a scene,
And his tears fall and burn the garden green

And so castles made of sand fall in the sea, eventually

A little indian brave who before he was ten,
Played wargames in the woods with his indian friends
And he built up a dream that when he grew up
He would be a fearless warrior indian cheif
Many moons past and more the dream grew strong until
Tomorrow he would sing his first warsong and fight his first battle
But something went wrong, surprise attack killed him in his sleep that night

And so castles made of sand melts into the sea, eventually

There was a young girl, who's heart was a frown
cause she was crippled for life,
And she couldn't speak a sound
And she wished and prayed she could stop living,
So she decided to die
She drew her wheelchair to the edge of the shore
And to her legs she smiled you wont hurt me no more
But then a sight shed never seen made her jump and say
Look a golden winged ship is passing my way

And it really didn't have to stop, it just kept on going...

And so castles made of sand slips into the sea, eventually

Artist : KHAN, CHAKA
Album : Funk This

I can tell by the look that's in your eyes
And I'm not surprised
You got to move on like the sun got to rise
I'm just holdin' you down

[BRIDGE:]
But the universe is calling you
You are one of chosen fews
You got to pay your dues

Me and the baby gonna miss you
I see your smile in her face
I only wish we were with you now
It's a lonely, lonely place

[BRIDGE]

[CHORUS:]
Hey, pack'd my bags, put 'em at the door
Hey, pack'd my bags, put 'em at the door
Hey, pack'd my bags, put 'em at the door

I know you'll make it
You deserve it, you know you do
The blues, you'll shake it
I'll, I'll focus our view

Oh, don't let them change you
Come like thieves in the night
Oh, don't' let them rearrange you, boy
You've got to do what's right

[BRIDGE]

[CHORUS]

Once a month, each time you say
Goin' away, oh
I don't wanna see you go
No no no no no no no no no no

Oh you, you've got to make it
You've got to make it, boy
Go on now

You Belong To Me Lyrics

Artist : KHAN, CHAKA
Album : Funk This

Why'd you tell me this?
While you look for my reaction
What do you need to know?
Don't you know I'll always be the one?

You don't have to prove to me you're beautiful to strangers
I've got lovin' eyes of my own
You belong to me, in this life

Anyone could tell
Any fool can see who you need
I know you all too well

You don't have to prove to me you're beautiful to strangers
I've got lovin' eyes and I can tell
You belong to me

Tell him you were foolin'
You belong to me, you belong to me
Tell him he's a stranger
You belong to me

Super Life Lyrics

Artist : KHAN, CHAKA
Album : Funk This

A mama's cryin'
'Cause another young man has gone and died
He's not some statistic
He's another awesome destiny denied

So I've got to stand tall
I'm gonna live a super life
For the rest of my life
I'm gonna live a super life
Super life, super life, yeah

We take it all so lightly
How did we get so 'climatized
On the 9 o'clock news nightly
Genocide of babies
I can't believe my eyes

Right or wrong
I'm gonna live a super life
For the rest of my life
I'm gonna live a super life
Super life, super life, yeah

You know the wrath of a woman
Is gonna bring about hell to pay
Everyone together come on get with me
Or get on out my way

I'm gonna live a super life
I'm gonna live a super life
(For the babies)

I'm gonna live a super life
I'm gonna live a super life
(For the babies)

I'm gonna sit right down and write myself a letter
And make believe it came from you

I'm gonna write words oh so sweet
They're gonna knock me off my feet
A lotta kisses on the bottom
I'll be glad I got 'em

I'm gonna smile and say
I hope you're feeling better
I'll close with love the way you do
I'm gonna sit right down and write myself a letter
And I'm gonna make believe it came from you

Home (When Shadows Fall) Lyrics

Artist : PAUL MCCARTNEY
Album : Kisses On The Bottom

Evening brings the close of day,
Skies of blue begin to grey,
Crimson hues are fading in the west.
Evening ever brings to me
Dreams of days that used to be,
Memories of those I love the best.

When shadows fall
And trees whisper, "Day is ending",
My thoughts are ever wending home.
When crickets call,
My heart is forever yearning
Once more to be returning home.

When the hills conceal the setting sun,
Stars begin a-peeping, one by one.
Night covers all,
And though fortune may forsake me,
Sweet dreams will ever take me home.

When the hills conceal the setting sun,
Stars begin a-peeping, one by one.
Night covers all,
And though fortune may forsake me,
Sweet dreams will ever take me home.

It's Only A Paper Moon Lyrics

Artist : PAUL MCCARTNEY
Album : Kisses On The Bottom

I never feel a thing is real
When I'm away from you
Out of your embrace
The world's a temporary parking place

Mmm, mm, mm, mm
A bubble for a minute
Mmm, mm, mm, mm
You smile, the bubble has a rainbow in it

Say, its only a paper moon
Sailing over a cardboard sea
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believed in me

Yes, it's only a canvas sky
Hanging over a muslin tree
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believed in me

Without your love
It's a honky-tonk parade
Without your love
It's a melody played in a penny arcade

It's a Barnum and Bailey world
Just as phony as it can be
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believed in me

More I Cannot Wish You Lyrics

Artist : PAUL MCCARTNEY
Album : Kisses On The Bottom

Velvet, I can wish you,
For the collar of your coat,
And fortune smiling all along your way,
But more I cannot wish you,
Then to wish you find your love,
Your own true love this day.

Mansions, I can wish you,
Seven footmen all in red,
And calling cards upon a silver tray,
But more I cannot wish you,
Then to wish you find your love,
Your own true love this day.

Standing there,
Gazing at you,
Full of the bloom of youth,
Standing there,
Gazing at you,
With the sheep's eye,
And the licerish tooth.

Music, I can wish you,
Merry music while you're young,
And wisdom, when your hair has turned to gray,
But more I cannot wish you,
Then to wish you find your love,
Your own true love this day.

With the sheep's eye,
And the lickerish tooth,
And the strong arms,
To carry you away

The Glory Of Love Lyrics

Artist : PAUL MCCARTNEY
Album : Kisses On The Bottom

You've got to give a little, take a little,
And let your poor heart break a little.
That's the story of, that's the glory of love.
You've got to laugh a little, cry a little,
Until the clouds roll by a little.
That's the story of, that's the glory of love.

As long as there's the two of us,
We've got the world and all it's charms.
And when the world is through with us,
We've got each other's arms.
You've got to win a little, lose a little,
Yes, and always have the blues a little.
That's the story of, that's the glory of love.

That's the story of, that's the glory of,
That's the story of, that's the glory of,
That's the story of,
That's the glory of love

We three, we're all alone, living in a memory
My echo, my shadow and me
We three we're not a crowd, we're not even company
My echo, my shadow and me

What good is the moonlight, the silvery moonlight
That shines above
I walk with my shadow,
I talk with my echo but where is the one I love

We three, we'll wait for you
Even till eternity
My echo, my shadow and me

We three, we're all alone, living in a memory
My echo, my shadow and me

What good is the moonlight, the silvery moonlight
That shines above
I walk with my shadow,
I talk with my echo but where is the one I love

We three, we'll wait for you
Even till eternity
My echo, my shadow and me

Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate The Positive Lyrics

Artist : PAUL MCCARTNEY
Album : Kisses On The Bottom

Gather 'round me, everybody
Gather 'round me, while I preach some
Feel a sermon coming on here
The topic will be sin
And that's what I'm agin'
If you wanna hear my story
Then settle back and just sit tight
While I start reviewing
The attitude of doing right

You got to ac-cent-tchu-ate the positive
E-lim-i-nate the negative
And latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with mister inbetween

You got to spread joy up to the maximum
Bring gloom down to the minimum
And have faith, or pandemonium
Liable to walk upon the scene

To illustrate my last remark
Jonah in the whale, Noah in the ark,
What did they do, just when everything looked so dark?
Man, they said, we better

Ac-cent-tchu-ate the positive
E-lim-i-nate the negative
And latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with mister inbetween

Always Lyrics

Artist : PAUL MCCARTNEY
Album : Kisses On The Bottom

Ev'rything went wrong
And the whole day long
I'd feel so blue
For the longest while
I forgot to smile
Then I met you
Now that my blue days have passed
Now that I've found you at last

I'll be loving you, always
With a love that's true, always
When the things you've planned
Need a helping hand
I will understand
Always, always

Days may not be fair, always
That's when I'll be there, always
Not for just an hour
Not for just a day
Not for just a year
But always

Dreams will all come true
Growing old with you
And time will fly
Caring each day more
Than the day before
Till spring rolls by
Then when the springtme has gone
Then will my love linger on

My Very Good Friend The Milkman Lyrics

Artist : PAUL MCCARTNEY
Album : Kisses On The Bottom

My very good friend, the milkman says
That I've been losing too much sleep
He doesn't like the hours I keep
And he suggests that you should marry me

My very good friend, the mailman says
That it would make his burden less
We both had the same address
And he suggests that you should marry me

And then there's a very friendly fellow who prints
All the latest real estate news
And every day he sends me blueprints
Of cottages with country views

My very good friends, the neighbors say
They've been watching little things I do
And they perceive that I love you
So I suggest that you should marry me

And then there's a very friendly fellow who prints
All the latest real estate news
And every day he sends me blueprints
Of cottages with country views

And my very good friends, the neighbors say
They've been watching little things I do
They perceive that I love you
So I suggest that you should marry me

Pack up all my cares and woes,
Here i go, singing low,
Bye, bye, blackbird.
Where somebody waits for me,
Sugar is sweet, so is she,
Bye, bye, blackbird.

No one here can love and understand me,
Oh, what hard luck stories they all hand me.

Make my bed and light the light,
I'll arrive late tonight,
Blackbird, bye, bye.

Oh, what hard luck stories they all hand me.

So, make my bed and light the light,

Get Yourself Another Fool Lyrics

Artist : PAUL MCCARTNEY
Album : Kisses On The Bottom

At last I've awakened to see what you've done
All I can do is pack up and run
Now I know the rules, find yourself another fool

You said that you loved me, I was yours to command
Your kind of loving, my heart couldn't stand
You played me for a fool, find yourself another fool

And now, now that we're through
You say, you wished you'd be true
Oh, but deep down in my heart
I know our love could never grow

And now, now that we're through
You say you wished you'd be true
Oh, but deep down in my heart
I know our love will never grow

At last I've awakened to see what you've done
All I can do is pack up and run
Now I know the rules, find yourself another fool

Now I know the rules, find yourself another fool

The Inch Worm Lyrics

Artist : PAUL MCCARTNEY
Album : Kisses On The Bottom

Two and two are four
Four and four are eight
Eight and eight are sixteen
Sixteen and sixteen are thirty-two

Inch worm, inch worm
Measuring the marigolds
You and your arithmetic
You'll probably go far

Inch worm, inch worm
Measuring the marigolds
Seems to me you'd stop and see
How beautiful they are

Inch worm, inch worm
Measuring the marigolds
You and your arithmetic
You'll probably go far

Inch worm, inch worm
Measuring the marigolds
Seems to me you'd stop and see
How beautiful they are

Two and two are four
Four and four are eight
(Eight and eight are sixteen)
Seems to me you'd stop and see
(Sixteen and sixteen are thirty-two)
How beautiful they are

Seems to me you'd stop and see
How beautiful they are

My One And Only Love Lyrics

Artist : PAUL MCCARTNEY
Album : Kisses On The Bottom

The very thought of you makes my heart sing
Like an April breeze on the wings of spring,
And you appear in all your splendor,
My one and only love.

The shadows fall and spread their mystic charms
In the hush of night while you're in my arms.
I feel your lips, so warm and tender,
My one and only love.

The touch of your hand is like heaven,
A heaven that I've never known.
The blush on your cheek whenever I speak
Tells me that you are my own.

You fill my eager heart with such desire.
Ev'ry kiss you give sets my soul on fire.
I give myself in sweet surrender,
My one and only love.

Compared To What Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : First Take

Love the lie and lie the love
Hangin' on, with a push and shove
Possession is the motivation
that is hangin' up the God-damn nation
Looks like we always end up in a rut (everybody now!)
Tryin' to make it real — compared to what?

Slaughterhouse is killin' hogs
Twisted children killin' frogs
Poor dumb rednecks rollin' logs
Tired old ladies kissin' dogs
Hate the human, love that stinking mutt (I can't stand it!)
Try to make it real — compared to what?

The President, he's got his war
Folks don't know just what it's for
Nobody gives us rhyme or reason
Have one doubt, they call it treason
We're chicken-feathers, all without one gut (God damn it!)
Tryin' to make it real — compared to what? (Sock it to me, now)

Church on Sunday, sleep and nod
Tryin' to duck the wrath of God
Preacher's fillin' us with fright
Tryin' to tell us what he thinks is right
He really got to be some kind of nut (I can't use it!)
Tryin' to make it real — compared to what?

Where's that bee and where's that honey?
Where's my God and where's my money
Unreal values, crass distortion
Unwed mothers need abortion
Kind of brings to mind ol' young King Tut (He did it now)
Tried to make it real — compared to what?!

Angelitos Negros Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : First Take

Pintor nacido en mi tierra
Con el pincel extranjero
Pintor que sigues el rumbo
De tantos pintores viejos

Aunque la virgen sea blanca
Píntale angelitos negros
Que también se van al cielo
Todos los negritos buenos

Pintor si pintas con amor
Por qué desprecias su color?
Si sabes que en el cielo
También los quiere Dios

Pintor de santos alcoba
Si tienes alma en el cuerpo
Por qué al pintar en tus cuadros
Te olvidaste de los negros

Siempre que pintas iglesias
Pintas angelitos bellos
Pero nunca te acordaste
De pintar un ángel negro

I told Jesus be alright, if you change my name, change my name, change my name
If he change ..... my ...... name

Hey, That's No Way To Say Goodbye Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : First Take

I loved you in the morning, our kisses deep and warm,
Your hair upon the pillow like a sleepy golden storm,
Yes, many loved before us, I know that we are not new,
In city and in forest they smiled like me and you,
But now it's come to distances and both of us must try,
Your eyes are soft with sorrow,
Hey, that's no way to say goodbye.

I'm not looking for another as I wander in my time,
Walk me to the corner, our steps will always rhyme
You know my love goes with you as your love stays with me,
It's just the way it changes, like the shoreline and the sea,
But let's not talk of love or chains and things we can't untie,
Your eyes are soft with sorrow,
Hey, that's no way to say goodbye.

I loved you in the morning, our kisses deep and warm,
Your hair upon the pillow like a sleepy golden storm,
Yes many loved before us, I know that we are not new,
In city and in forest they smiled like me and you,
But let's not talk of love or chains and things we can't untie,
Your eyes are soft with sorrow,
Hey, that's no way to say goodbye.

I thought the sun rose in your eyes
And the moon and the stars were the gifts you gave
To the dark and the end of the skies

And the first time ever I kissed your mouth
I felt the earth move in my hand
Like the trembling heart of a captive bird
That was there at my command, my love

And the first time ever I lay with you
I felt your heart so close to mine
And I knew our joy would fill the earth
And last, till the end of time, my love

The first time ever I saw your face
Your face
Your face
Your face

Tryin' Times Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : First Take

Yeah, yeah, yeah, oh yeah

Tryin' times, what the world is talkin' about
You got confusion all over the land, yeah
You got mother against daughter, you got father against son
You know the whole thing is getting out of hand

Then maybe folks wouldn't have to suffer
If there was more love for your brother
But these are tryin' times, yeah, yeah

You got the riots in the ghetto, it's all around
A whole lot of things that's wrong is going down, yes, it is
I can't understand it from my point of view
'Cause I think you should do unto others
As you'd have them do unto you

Then maybe folks wouldn't have to suffer
If there was more love for your brother
But these are tryin' times, yes, it is

I said man is always talking 'bout it's inhumanity to man
But what is he tryin' to do to make it a better man?
Oh, just read the paper, turn on your TV
You see folks demonstrating about equality

But maybe folks wouldn't have to suffer
If there was more love for your brother
But these are tryin' times

Tryin' times, yeah, that's what the world is talkin' about
You got confusion all over the land

Ballad Of The Sad Young Men Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : First Take

Sing a song of sad young men, glasses full of rye
All the news is bad again, kiss your dreams goodbye

All the sad young men, sitting in the bars
Knowing neon nights, and missing all the stars

All the sad young men, drifting through the town
Drinking up the night, trying not to drown

All the sad young men, singing in the cold
Trying to forget, that they're growing old

All the sad young men, choking on their youth
Trying to be brave, running from the truth

Autumn turns the leaves to gold, slowly dies the heart
Sad young men are growing old, that's the cruellest part

All the sad young men, seek a certain smile
Someone they can hold, for just a little while

Tired little girl, does the best she can
Trying to be gay, for a sad young men

While a grimy moon, watches from above
All the sad young men, who play at making love

Misbegotten moon shine for sad young men
Let your gentle light guide them home again
All the sad, sad, sad, young men

Reverend Lee Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Chapter Two

[Spoken:]
This is a song about a very big, black, strong,
sexy southern baptist minister,
who thinks that he's got his program all together
until he runs up against a lady
who shows him that he ain't got it all together.
His name is Rev. Doctor Lee

[Singing:]
Rev. Lee, he went to the water,
and he prayed to the lord about ol satan's daughter.
It seems in a dream, child,
while he lay sleeping,
she climbed in his bed,
starts rubbing and weeping.

Oh she was twisting and turning,
she was beggin and pleading,
loving burning,
panting and breathing,

Rev. Lee she said,
"oh lord knows I love you child,
I will not even place God above you."
Rev. Lee he lifted his arms high,
said "heavenly father, take me home to the sky."
He said "lord please don't test me,
not down where she touched me oh,
my mind is so hazzy lord my body is hungry,
oh yeah"

God rolled a thunder then a bolt of lighting he seemed to be angry,
oh sure was frightening,
the thunder grew louder louder,
dark and conditions just then a voice said
"God can not petitioned"

Just then the devil emerged from the water
and he said in a dry voice
"your God will not barter."

Reverend Lee ran screaming from the water,
he was hotly persude by old satan's daughter,
"Rev. Lee" she said Rev. Lee, Rev. Lee,
oh do it to me, Rev. Lee,
do it to me, Rev. Lee do it to me...."

Do What You Gotta Do Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Chapter Two

Man, I can understand how it might be
Kind of hard to love a girl like me
I don't blame you much for wanting to be free
I just wanted you to know
I loved you better than your own kin did
From the very start
It's my own fault for what happens to my heart
You see I've always known you'd go

But you just do what you gotta do
My wild sweet love
Though it may mean I'll never kiss your sweet lips again
Pay that no mind
Just find that dappled dream of yours
Come on back and see me when you can

Well, I know they make you sad
They make you feel so bad
They say you don't treat me like you should
Folks got ways to make you feel no good
I'd guess they've got no way to know
I've had my eyes wide open from the start
And boy, you never lied to me
And the part of you they'll never see
Is the part you've shown to me

So you just do what you gotta do
My wild sweet love
Though it may mean I'll never kiss those sweet lips again
Pay that no mind
Just find that dappled dream of yours
Come on back and see me
Come on back and see me when you can

Just Like A Woman Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Chapter Two

Nobody feels any pain tonight as I stand inside the rain
Everybody knows baby's got new clothes
Lately I've shown my ribbons and my bows
And my problems from my curls

And I take just like a woman
And I made love just like a woman
And I ache just like a woman
I break up like a little girl

The Queen Mary is my friend, I believe I'll go and see her again
Ain't nobody has to guess, the baby won't be blessed
Till she finds out she's just like all the rest
With her problems, her amphetamines and her pearls

She takes just like a woman
She makes love like a woman
And she aches just like a woman
She breaks up like a little girl

Oh, it was raining there at first
And I was dying there of thirst
So I came in here

And a long time trust it hurts
But what's worse
Is this pain in here, I can't stay in here
Ain't it clear?

Oh, I must admit I believe, it's time for us to quit
When we meet again and we're introduced as friends
Please don't let on that you knew me when
I was hungry for you and it was your world

I take just like a woman
And I make love just like a woman
And I ache just like a woman
And I break up like a little girl

Let It Be Me Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Chapter Two

I bless the day I found you
I want to stay around you
And so I beg you, let it be me

Don't take this heaven from one
If you must cling to someone
Now and forever, let it be me

Each time we meet love
I find complete love
Without your sweet love what would life be

So never leave me lonely
Tell me you love me only
And that you'll always let it be me

Each time we meet love
I find complete love
Without your sweet love what would life be

So never leave me lonely
Tell me you love me only
And that you'll always-let-it-be-me

Gone Away Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Chapter Two

I try to reason and I tell myself you'll return
But you are gone and I know, I know, I know you're gone
You were mine for only a minute and if I hurt you I didn't intend it

You are gone away, I keep telling my mind
You're not gonna stay
Yet I believe sometimes that I've lost you, baby
I've lost you, baby and you are gone

Forgive and forget it, that's not what I'll ask you to do
'Cause I want you back, you know, you know I want you back
And in concluding my mental displeasure
I found I've lost my prize possession

You are gone away, I keep telling my mind
You're not gonna stay
Yet I believe sometimes that I've lost you, baby
I've lost you, baby and you are gone

You were mine for only a minute and if I hurt you I didn't intend it
You are gone away, I keep telling my mind
You're not gonna stay
Yet I believe sometimes I've lost you, baby
I've lost you, baby and you are gone

Until It's Time For You To Go Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Chapter Two

You're not a dream
You're not an angel
You're a man

I'm not a queen
I'm a woman
Take my hand

We'll make a space
In the lives
That we'd planned

And here you'll stay
Until it's time
For you to go

Yes we're different
We're worlds apart
We're not the same

You laughed and joked
At the start
Like in a game

You could've stayed
Outside my heart
but in you came
And here you'll stay

Don't ask why
And don't ask how
Don't ask forever
Love me now

This love of mine
Had no beginning
It has no end

I was an oak
Now I'm a willow
But I can bend

And though I'll never
In my life
See you again
Won't you stay

Don't ask why of me
And don't ask how of me
Don't ask forever of me
Love me
Love me now

This love of I
Has no beginning
It has no end

I was an oak
Now I'm a willow
But I can bend

Though I'll never never never in my life
See you again
Won't you stay
Until is time
For you to go

The Impossible Dream Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Chapter Two

To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go

To right the unrightable wrong
To love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star

This is my quest, to follow that star
No matter how hopeless, no matter how far
To fight for the right, without question or pause
To be willing to march into Hell for a heavenly cause

And I know if I'll only be true
To this glorious quest
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm
When I'm laid to my rest

And the world will be better for this
That one man scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star!

Business Goes On As Usual Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Chapter Two

Business goes on as usual,
The corn and the profits are high
And TV's boom in every living room,
They tell us what deodorants to buy

Business goes on as usual,
Except that my brother's dead,
He was 25 and very much alive,
But the dreams have all been blasted from his head

In in a far off land with a gun in his hand
He died in a war he did not understand

While business goes on as usual,
There's plenty to choose from the rack
But rumor goes that the latest thing in clothes,
The latest things in clothes will be black.

But business goes on as usual, as usual, as usual.

Bridge Over Troubled Water Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Quiet Fire

When you're weary and feelin' small
When tears are in your eyes, I'll dry them all
I'm on your side when times get rough
And friends just can't, can't be found

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

When you're down and out
When you're on the street
And evenin' falls so hard
I will comfort you

And I'll take your part when darkness comes
And pain is all, all around

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

Sail on silver girl, sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way
See how, how they shine

If you need a friend
I'm sailing right, right behind

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I can ease, ease your mind

Like a bridge over troubled water
I can ease your mind

See You Then Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Quiet Fire

Part of a dream
Still hurting
Hurting in my left eye
And I know I'm gonna have to make
A last try
But if I'm back in California
Before the snow flies
I'll see you then

I got no plans aside from living
Living till tomorrow
And I'm gonna run on every minuet
Every minuet
That I can borrow
And when I pay back all my dues
And lose the sorrow
I'll see you then

Lost, yes, I'm lost
Lost forever
Beyond your help and tender kindness
I cannot see beyond, beyond my cherished blindness

You must admit
we really, really had a nice time
There was moment after moment
Before the love died
And if I never kiss you lips
Again, on this side
I'll see you then
See you then

Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Quiet Fire

Tonight you're mine, completely
You give your soul so sweetly
Tonight the light of love is in your eyes
But will you love me tomorrow

Is this a lasting treasure
Or just a moment's pleasure
Can I believe the magic in your sighs
And will you still love me tomorrow

Tonight with words unspoken
You say that I'm the only one
But will my heart be broken
When the night meets the morning sun

I'd like to know if your love
Is a love I can be sure of
So tell me now and I won't ask again
Will you still love me tomorrow
Will you still love me tomorrow
Will you still love me tomorrow

To Love Somebody Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Quiet Fire

There's a light,
A certain kind of light,
That never shone on me.
I want my life to be lived with you,
Lived with you.

There's a way, everybody say,
To do each and every little thing.
But what does it bring
If I ain't got you, ain't got?

Baby, you don't know what it's like,
Baby, you don't know what it's like
To love somebody,
To love somebody,
The way I love you.

In my brain
I see your face again.
I know my frame of mind.
But you ain't got to be so blind.
And I'm blind, so su very blind.

Cause I'm a man,
Can't you see what I am?
I live and I breathe for you.
But what good does it do
If I ain't got you, ain't got?

Baby, you don't know what it's like,
Baby, you don't know what it's like
To love somebody,
To love somebody,
The way I love you.

Oh, you don't know what it's like,
Baby, you don't know what it's like
To love somebody,
To love somebody,
The way I love you.

Let Them Talk Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Quiet Fire

Let them talk
If they want to
Talk, don't bother me
I want the whole wide world to know
That I love you so

Let them whisper
For they know not what
What's between you and I
And I'll keep on loving you
Until the day I die

They're trying to break up our romance
But they don't stand a chance
We have a love that's so strong
We'll be together from now on on on

Let them gossip
It's the devil's workshop
True love, can make it stop
And I want the whole wide world to know
That I love you so

They're envious of everything we do
But
It's so wonderful
When you love someone
And that someone LOVE'S YOU

Sweet Bitter Love Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Quiet Fire

Sweet, sweet bitter love
The taste still lingers
Go through my helpless fingers
You slipped away

Sweet, sweet bitter love
What joy you brought me
And what pain you taught me
I'm so sure I'll stay

And my magic dreams
Have lost their spell
Where there was hope
There's just an empty shell

Sweet, sweet bitter love
Why have you awakened
And then forsakened
A trusting heart like mine?

My magic dreams
Have lost their spell
And where there was hope
There's just an empty shell

Sweet, sweet bitter love
What joy, what joy you brought me
And what pain you taught me
I'm so sure to stay

Sweet bitter love
Why, why have you awakened
And then forsakened
A trusting heart, a trusting heart like mine?

I (Who Have Nothing) Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Roberta Flack & Donny Hathaway

I, I who have nothing
And I
I who have no one
Adore you, and want you so
I'm just a no one
With nothing to give you
But, oh
I love you

He, he buys you diamonds
Bright, sparkling diamonds
But believe me, dear
Believe me when I say
He can give you the world
But he'll never love you
The way
I love you

You can go any place you want
To fancy clubs and restaurants
But I can only watch you
With my nose pressed
Up against the window pane

Oh, I
I who have nothing
And I
I who have no one
Must watch you go
Passing by
Wrapped in the arms
Of someone else
When, darling
It is I
Who loves you

Oh...

You've Got A Friend Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Roberta Flack & Donny Hathaway

When you're down and troubled
And you need a helping hand
And nothing, nothing is going right.

Close your eyes and think of me
And soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest nights.

You just call out my name,
And you know whereever I am
I'll come running, oh yeah baby
To see you again.

Winter, spring, summer, or fall,
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.
You've got a friend.

If the sky above you
Should turn dark and full of clouds
And that old north wind should begin to blow
Keep your head together and call my name out loud
And soon I will be knocking upon your door.
You just call out my name and you know where ever I am
I'll come running to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you got to do is call
And I'll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Hey, ain't it good to know that you've got a friend?
People can be so cold.
They'll hurt you and desert you.
Well they'll take your soul if you let them.
Oh yeah, but don't you let them.

You just call out my name and you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again.
Oh babe, don't you know that,
Winter spring summer or fall,
Hey now, all you've got to do is call.
Lord, I'll be there, yes I will.
You've got a friend.
You've got a friend.
Ain't it good to know you've got a friend.
Ain't it good to know you've got a friend.
You've got a friend.

Don't let your low down friends tell you I don't need you

Be Real Black For Me Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Roberta Flack & Donny Hathaway

Our time, short and precious
Your lips, warm and luscious
You don't have to wear false charms
'Cause when I wrap you in my hungry arms

Be real black for me
Be real black for me

Your hair, soft and crinkly
Your body, strong and stately
You don't have to search and roam
'Cause I got your love at home

Be real black for me
Be real black for me

In my head I'm only half together
If I lose you, I'll be ruined forever
Darling, take my hand and hold me
Hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me

You know how much I need you
To have you, really feel you
You don't have to change a thing
No one knows the love you bring

Be real black for me
Be real black for me
Be real black for me
Be real black for me

I want you to do that
Be real black for me
Be real black for me
Be real black for me
Be real black for me

Lord, have mercy
Be real black for me
Be real black for me

Now baby, oh baby, I beg you baby, oh baby

For All We Know Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Roberta Flack & Donny Hathaway

For all we know
We may never meet again
Before you go

Make this moment sweet again
We won't say goodnight
Until the last minute
I will hold out my hand
And my heart will be in it
For all we know

This may only be a dream
We come and we go
Like the ripples of a stream
So love me

Love me tonight
Tomorrow was made for some
Tomorrow may never come
For all we know

Where Is The Love Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Roberta Flack & Donny Hathaway
(feat. Donny Hathaway)

Where is the love
(Where is the love)
Where is the love
(Where is the love)
Where is the love
(Where is the love)
Where is the love

Where is the love
You said you'd give to me
Soon as you were free
Will it ever be
Where is the love

You told me that you didn't love him
And you were gonna say goodbye
But if you really didn't mean it
Why did you have to lie

Where is the love
You said was mine all mine
Till the end of time
Was it just a lie
Where is the love

If you had had a sudden change of heart
I wish that you would tell me so
Don't leave me hangin on the promises
You've got to let me know

[Instrumental Interlude]

Oh, how I wish I never met you
I guess it must have been my fate
To fall in love with someone else's love
All I can do is wait
(That's all I can do)
Yeah, hey, yeah

Where is the love

When Love Has Grown Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Roberta Flack & Donny Hathaway

When love has grown
Up to the point of love
When the tears that are cried
Are not the sweet tears of joy
You know the sun has surely made its final dawning
When love has died
Instead of growing on

When love can grow
Up to the point of love
When the tears that are cried
Can be the sweet tears of joy
Then we'll have days that are filled with days and nights
Of loving, you & me
Then love will ever be growing on

When love can grow
Up to the point of love
Mmmm, when the tears that are cried
Can be the sweet tears of joy
Then we'll have days that are filled with days and nights
Of loving, you & me
Then love will ever be growing on

Growing on, growing on
Growing on, growing on
Growing
Growing, growing, growing, growing, growing on

Come Ye Disconsolate Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Roberta Flack & Donny Hathaway

Come, ye disconsolate, wherever ye languish,
Come to the mercy seat, fervently kneel.
Here bring your wounded hearts, here tell your anguish;
Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal.

Joy of the desolate, light of the straying,
Hope of the penitent, fadeless and pure!
Here speaks the Comforter, tenderly saying,
"Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot cure."
I said, earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot cure

Killing Me Softly With His Song Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Killing Me Softly

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song

I heard he sang a good song
I heard he had a style
And so I came to see him
To listen for a while
And there he was this young boy
A stranger to my eyes

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song

I felt all flushed with fever
Embarassed by the crowd
I felt he found my letters
And read each one out loud
I prayed that he would finish
But he just kept right on

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song

He sang as if he knew me
In all my dark despair
And then he looked right through me
As if I wasn't there
And he just kept on singing
Singing clear and strong

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song

[Break]

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me

He was strumming my pain
Yeah, he was singing my life
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly
With his song

Jesse Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Killing Me Softly

Jesse, come home, there's a hole in the bed
Where we slept, now it's growing cold
Jesse, your face and the place where we lay
By the hearth, all apart, it hangs on my heart
And I'm leaving the light on the stairs
No, I'm not scared, I wait for you
Hey Jesse, it's lonely, come home

Jesse, the stairs and the halls, recalling
Your step, and I remember too
All the pictures are shaded and fading in gray
And I still set a place at the table at noon
And I'm leaving the light on the stairs
No, I'm not scared, I wait for you
Hey Jesse, it's lonely, come home

Jesse, the spread on the bed, it's like
When you left, I kept it for you
All the blues and the greens have been recently cleaned
And are seemingly new,
Hey Jess, me and you
Will swallow the light on the stairs
I'll fix up my hair, we'll sleep unaware
Hey Jesse, it's lonely, come home

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Killing Me Softly

When you smile I can see you were born, born for me
And for me you will be do or die
Oh, baby let me hold you
You make me want to hold you
When you smile, smile, smile, smile, smile, smile, smile

When you smile I can see there is hope
Hope for me and for you
If you know what I mean
I'm gonna sock it to you
I'm gonna rock it to you
Ev'ry time, time, time, time, time

When you smile, I can see
You and me, me and you
There is love in your eyes
When you smile
Oh, baby let me love you
You gotta let me love you
When you smile, smile, smile, smile, smile, smile, smile
La la la, la la la, ...

When you smile I can see you were born, born for me
And for me you will be do or die
Oh, baby let me hold you
You make me want to hold you
When you smile, smile, smile, smile, smile, smile, smile

Suzanne Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Killing Me Softly

Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river
You can hear the boats go by
You can spend the night beside her
And you know that she's half crazy
But that's why you want to be there
And she feeds you tea and oranges
That come all the way from China
And just when you mean to tell her
That you have no love to give her
Then she gets you on her wavelength
And she lets the river answer
That you've always been her lover
And you want to travel with her
And you want to travel blind
And you know that she will trust you
For you've touched her perfect body with your mind.

And Jesus was a sailor
When he walked upon the water
And he spent a long time watching
From his lonely wooden tower
And when he knew for certain
Only drowning men could see him
He said "All men will be sailors then
Until the sea shall free them"
But he himself was broken
Long before the sky would open
Forsaken, almost human
He sank beneath your wisdom like a stone
And you want to travel with him
And you want to travel blind
And you think maybe you'll trust him
For he's touched your perfect body with his mind.

Now Suzanne takes your hand
And she leads you to the river
She is wearing rags and feathers
From Salvation Army counters
And the sun pours down like honey
On our lady of the harbour
And she shows you where to look
Among the garbage and the flowers
There are heroes in the seaweed
There are children in the morning
They are leaning out for love
And they will lean that way forever
While Suzanne holds the mirror
And you want to travel with her
And you want to travel blind
And you know that you can trust her
For she's touched your perfect body with her mind.

The Closer I Get To You Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Blue Lights In The Basement
(feat. Donny Hathaway)

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 tried 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

Ooooh-ooh-ooh, whoa-oooooh
Sweeter and sweeter love grows
And Heaven's there for those
Who fooled the tricks of time
With the hearts of love they find
True love in a special way

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 tried 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

The closer I get to you
The more you make me see
By giving you all you've got
Your love has captured me

The closer I get to you
The feeling comes over me
Me too
Pulling closer sweet as the gravity

This Time I'll Be Sweeter Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Blue Lights In The Basement

Darlin', can't you see
What losin' you has done to me?
I'm not the same girl I used to be

Have a change of heart,
Don't leave me standin' in the dark
Don't let confusion keep us apart

Come back to me,
And I'll guarantee
All the tenderness and love you'll ever need

This time I'll be sweeter,
Our love will run deeper;
I won't mess around,
I won't let you down,
Have faith in me (umm hmm)
Have faith in me

Since you've been away,
I haven't seen the light of day;
I'm lost without you,
Can't find my way

So won't you please be fair,
And let me show how much I care,
Say you'll be mine
And answer my pray'r

Come back to me,
And I promise I'll be
Ev'rything that's bright and new,
Your whole life through

This time I'll be sweeter,
Our love will run deeper;
I won't mess around,
I won't let you down,
Have faith in me (umm hmm)
Have faith in me

25th Of Last December Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Blue Lights In The Basement

Many reason to remember
25th of last December
How it felt
When you would hold me
In your loving arms
Now the summer's come and gone
You're away
Christmas day's just not the same
Guess I'll cry away my pain
You left home this past September
Now the fire's just an ember
We were once so warm and tender
Now you're movin' on
We were once that special blend
Of me and you
Love was true
And love was new
Now the clouds are passing through
Visions of a warm December love
But that's all gone now
An empty space where we made love
Right here in my lonely bed
You're in my memory
So clear
I feel your presence
If I reached out
It's like I'd find you there

[?]

Winter nights snowflakes dancing
Mysteries of life entrance me
With the thrill of winter closeness
Only we could share
Now my nights are spent alone
Since you were gone
On my very own
My pain has grown

After You Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Blue Lights In The Basement

Raining again
I ought to get out from under
Sometimes I wonder
Sometimes I don't wonder at all

And as for loving again
Someday somebody might need me
But where would it lead me?
I'd just be rising to fall

After you
What am I gonna do?
You took a part of me
As you were passing through

After you
What am I gonna find
The me I left behind
That I'll meet after you

Drifting again
From place to place without reason
Season to season
Like nothing matters at all

And as for people again
Somewhere somebody might need me
But where would it lead me?
I'd just be rising to fall

After you
What am I gonna do?
You took a part of me
As you were passing through

After you
What am I gonna find
The me I left behind
That I'll meet after you

After you
What am I gonna do?
You took a part of me
As you were passing through

After you
What am I gonna find
The me I left behind
As you were passing through

After you
What am I gonna do?
You took a part of me
As you were passing through

After you
What am I gonna find
The me I left behind
That I'll meet after you

I'd Like To Be Baby To You Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Blue Lights In The Basement

Cry like a baby,
I'd like a baby,
I'd like to be baby to you.

I may look like a lady,
All grown up a shady,
But I'd like to be baby to you.

To you
No matter what it makes you think of me,
To you
I wanna hide in you like two years old,
To you
I wanna give you everything I got
And that's a lot to do ror you.

I could run like a rabbit,
Run out of habit,
I hope I can grab it with you.
Otherwise I'll cry like a baby,
Don't be no maybe,
And you could be my baby too,
'Cause I'd like to be baby to you.

I could run like a rabbit,
Run out of habit,
I hope I can grab it with you.
Otherwise I'll cry like a baby,
Don't be no maybe,
And you could be my baby too,
'Cause I'd like to be baby to you.

Soul Deep Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Blue Lights In The Basement

Darling, I don’t know much
I know I love you so much
My system's on your touch.

And my love is a river runnin’ soul deep
Deep down inside me it’s runnin' soul deep
Too big to hide, and it can’t be denied
My love is a river runnin’ soul deep.

I work myself to death for you
Just to show I adore you
Nothin’ I wouldn’t do for you.

And my love is a river runnin’ soul deep
Deep down inside me it’s runnin' soul deep
Too big to hide, and it can’t be denied
My love is a river runnin’ soul deep.

All I ever want to be
Depends on your love for me
Baby, baby, if you should leave me
I would be nothin’ but an empty shell

Honey, I don’t know much
I know I love you so much
My system's on your touch.

And my love is a river runnin’ soul deep
Deep down inside me it’s runnin' soul deep
Too big to hide, and it can’t be denied
My love is a river runnin’ soul deep.
Too big to hide, and it can’t be denied
My love is a river runnin’ soul deep.
Too big to hide, and it can’t be denied
My love is a river runnin’ soul deep.

I'm The One Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : I'm The One

If you're looking for a lover
You don't have to look no further
I'm the one

If you want to have a good time
Playing in the midnight sunshine
I'm the one

If you're looking for a hot night
I can put you in the spotlight
I'm the one

If it's pleasure that you're after
Party lights and fun and laughter
I'm the one

When it comes to making love
I am the best
I'm all yours
Put me to the test
Love is my specialty
And I know what to do
To make you give your love to me

For real live celebration
And a standing ovation
I'm the one

Like a hundred angels strumming
Baby, I can keep it coming
I'm the one

When it comes to making love
I am the best
I'm all yours
Put me to the test
Love is my specialty
And I know what to do
To make you give it up
I know what to do
To make you give it up
I know what to do
To make you give it up
I know what to do
To make you give your love to me

If you're looking for a lover
You don't have to look no further
I'm the one

If you want to have a good time
Playing in the midnight sunshine
I'm the one

When it comes to making love
I am the best
I'm all yours
Put me to the test
Love is my specialty
And I know what to do
To make you give your love to me

Making love I am the best
I'm all yours
Put me to the test
It's my specialty
I know what to do

Making love I am the best
I'm all yours
Put me to the test
My specialty
And I know what to do

Comes to making love
I'm all yours

In The Name Of Love Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : I'm The One

People try to create feelings just the same as love.
In the name of love, in the name of love.
For the sake of silly passion make a game of love.
In the name of love, in the name of love.

Jumping up and down on your emotions.
Just another way to break your heart.
And it really makes you wonder what became of love.
In the name of love.

They make all the sacrifices for the sake of love.
What they make of love, is old heartbreak of love.
When there ain't no giving in the give and take of love.
But blame on love, in the name of love.

Jumping up and down on your emotions.
Just another way to break your heart.
And there really ain't no feeling quite the same as love.
In the name of love.

People try to create feelings just the same as love.
In the name of love, in the name of love.
For the sake of foolish passion make a game of love.
In the name of love, in the name of love.

coming up and down with real devotion.
There's a better way to win my heart.
And there really ain't no feeling quite the same as love.
In the name of love.

Making Love Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : I'm The One

Here close to our feelings
We touch again
We love again
Remember when we thought
Our hearts would never mend
And we're all the better for each other

There's more to love I know
Than making love

Here no more confusion
We see our lives
We live our lives
Remember when we thought
We never would survive
But now neither one of us is breaking

There's more to love I know
Than making love

Some things never change
Some things sometimes do

[Instrumental Interlude]

And now I'm feeling strong enough to let you in
And now neither one of us is breaking
Knowing now there's more to love
Than making love
And I'll remember you and making love
And I'll remember you
And I'll remember you
And I'll remember you
And I'll remember you

Happiness Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : I'm The One

You look at what you've done to me
Look at how you've set me free
Free from how it used to be

Loneliness was the order of the day
Only game I dared to play
All I could afford to pay

You walked in with happiness
And so much more
Life I guess and what it's for
Such happiness, much more happiness
You brought love

You brought magic to every part of me
Magic to the heart of me
Yes, ecstasy when you're next to me
I've got love

You, you were my falling star
I wished on you from a far
My wish came true and here you are

Here you are, brighter than the world outside
Dearer than the tears I've cried
Seeing you, the tears have dried

You walked in with happiness
And so much more
Life I guess and what it's for
Such happiness, much more happiness
You brought love

You brought magic to every part of me
Magic to the heart of me
Yes, ecstasy when you're next to me
I've got love

You brought happiness
Oh, life I guess
Happiness
You brought love

You brought magic, oh
Ecstasy when you near to me
I've got love
You brought magic, oh, yeah

Tonight, I Celebrate My Love Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Born To Love

Tonight I celebrate my love for you
It seems like the natural thing to do
Tonight no one's gonna find us
We'll leave the world behind us
When I make love to you
Tonight I celebrate my love for you

And I hope that deep inside you feel it too
Tonight our spirits will be climbing
To a sky lit with diamonds
When I make love to you tonight

Tonight I celebrate my love for you
And that midnight sun
Is gonna come shining through
Tonight there'll be no distance between us
What I want most to do
Is to make love to you tonight

Tonight I celebrate my love for you
And soon this old world will feel brand new
Tonight we will both discover
How friends turn into lovers
When I make love to you

Tonight I celebrate my love for you
And that midnight sun
Is gonna come shining through
Tonight there'll be no distance between us
What I want most to do
Is to make love to you

Tonight I celebrate my love for you
Tonight I celebrate my love for you

One day you laugh, one day you cry-y-y-y-y
You've got a choice and you've got to choose
Sometimes love can ta-ake you high-igh-igh-igh-igh-high
Love can take you high-igh

Maybe Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Born To Love

If we both decide to try and make it one more time
I hope we take the time to know each other well
And if the answers don't come quick we'll go with how it feels
And sometimes that's not yes or no but

Maybe there'll be no falling stars this time around
I still believe that
Honesty is all we'll ever need
You and me again, maybe

You keep asking me if I will love you for all time
If two of us will be enough to make it strong
And if we learn to keep it free and let each other grow
We'll find out there's no yes or no just

Maybe there'll be no falling stars this time around
I still believe that
Honesty is all we'll ever need
Can we make it through, maybe

No candles or guitar this time around (this time around)
I still believe that
Honesty is all we'll ever need (all we'll need)
You and me again (maybe)
Maybe

Maybe there'll be no falling stars this time around (this time around)
I still believe that
Honesty is all we'll ever need
[till fade]

I Just Came Here To Dance Lyrics

Artist : ROBERTA FLACK
Album : Born To Love

Oh...

I was feelin' lonely
And I was new in town
I was just lookin' for a friend
When the music started
And you stepped out of the crowd
My heart just opened up and let you in

I just came here to dance
Never knew I'd find a lover
I just came here to dance
But now I can't recover

I was caught up in the music
Captured by the magic in your eyes
I wasn't trying to find romance
I just came here to dance

Mmm...
{Hmm...}

I may be talkin' crazy
Maybe I'm insane
To lose my heart so easily
But when we started dancin'
And I held you in my arms
I'll never know what just came over me

I just came here to dance
Never knew I'd find a lover
I just came here to dance
But now I can't recover

I was caught up in the music
Captured by the magic in your eyes
I wasn't trying to find romance
I just came here to dance

Oh, it felt so right holdin' you so tight
Just spinning 'round and 'round
When the night was through it was me and you
And the new love we had found (Ooh...ooh...oh...oh...)

Just came here to dance, woo, hoo
I just came here to dance

I was caught up in the magic (Whoa)
Captured by the magic in your eyes
I wasn't trying to find romance
I just came here to dance

I just came here to dance
You know I did, you know I did, I
I wasn't trying to find romance
I just came here to dance

You know I did, you know I did, I
Just came here to dance
You know I did, you know I did, I
I wasn't trying to find romance
I just came here to dance

Album : Born To Love

Ooh Love, Uh-uh, Uh-uh-huh-huh
Uh-huh-huh-huh-huh

I've got this feelin' like I'm comin' ali-ive
I've got this feelin' like I'm comin' ali-ive
Comin', comin', comin' ali-ive
Comin', comin', comin' ali-ive

I was walkin' alone for a long ti-ime, tryin' to fi-ind my way-ay
I was searchin' for love I could call mine, then somethin' happened to me today
I felt the rush of sudden desire, my emotions are all on fire
There's a spark that you've ignited, it's comin' on and I just can't fight it

(I'm) I've got this feelin' like I'm comin' ali-ive
(Comin') I've got this feelin' like I'm comin' ali-ive
(Alive...) Comin', comin', comin' ali-ive
Comin', comin', comin' ali-ive

Somethin's stirrin' inside me, that I never fe-elt before
I felt it the moment you touched me, now I'm not alone anymore
Now that I've found you I don't want to lose you
You started something that I could get used to-oo
I'm so glad that we made the connection
Just keep sendin' what you've got in my direction

(I'm...) I've got this feelin' like I'm comin' ali-ive
(Comin'...) I've got this feelin' like I'm comin' ali-ive
(Alive...) Comin', comin', comin' ali-ive
Comin', comin', comin' ali-ive

Comin' alive, comin' alive (hooh)
I've got this feelin' like I'm comin' al-ive
Comin' alive, comin' alive (hooh)
I've got this feelin' like I'm comin' ali-ive

I felt the rush of sudden desire, my emotions are all on fire
There's a spark that you've ignited, it's comin' on and I just can't fig
