Go Ahead

Go Ahead

Broken promises
My heart you stole, lies you told
Got the best of me
Digging in my heart of gold
Used to look at you and see the possibilities
I see you for who you are
Boy, you’ve disappointed me

I thought you gave me love
It was never near enough
Soon enough time reveals
The weight of what is real
I know all I need to know
Boy, see? You gotta go
What have you given me
But lies, lies

Go ahead
Go on and get up outta here
Go ahead, baby
You knew you was wrong
You knew all alongMust be crazy
Must be crazy
If you think I’ma fall
For this any more
Everybody say “Naah”
Everybody say “Naah”

Used to believe in every word you said
Clouds in my head
Leaving me here to drown
Hopes and dreams left for dead
You point your finger trying to justify your mistakes
A change is gonna be made
So you best be on your way

I thought you gave me love
It was never near enough
Soon enough time reveals
The weight of what is real
I know all I need to know
Boy, see? You gotta go
What have you given me
But lies, lies

Go ahead
Go on and get up outta here
Go ahead, baby
You knew you was wrong
You knew all along
Must be crazy
If you think I’ma fall
For this any more
Everybody say “Naah”
Everybody say “Naah”

No need to apologize
Don’t try to make it right
I know, I shoulda known better
When you took hold, I was sold
Using fear to control, now it unfolds
Let me tell you right now what I’m gonna do
Made up my mind this time and I’m through with you
Nothing you can say or do
Can make me change my mind
So just

Go ahead
Go on and get up outta here
Go ahead, baby
You knew you was wrong
You knew all along
Must be crazy
If you think I’ma fall
For this any more
Everybody say “Naah”
Everybody say “Naah”

Superwoman

Superwoman

Everywhere I’m turning
Nothing seems complete
I stand up and I’m searching
For the better part of me
I hang my head from sorrow
State of humanity
I wear it on my shoulders
Gotta find the strength in me

‘Cause I am a superwoman
Yes I am
Even when I’m a mess
I still put on a vest with an “S” on my chest
Oh yes,
I’m a superwoman

For all the monsters fighting
For better days to come
And all my women
All my women sitting here trying
To come home before the sun
And all my sisters
Coming together
Say, “Yes, I will”
“Yes, I can”

‘Cause I am a superwoman
Yes I am
Even when I’m a messI still put on a vest with an “S” on my chest
I still put on a vest with an “S” on my chest
Oh yes,
I’m a superwoman

When I’m breaking down
And I can’t be round
And I start to get weak
‘Cause no one knows
Me underneath these clothes
But I can fly
We can fly

‘Cause I am a superwoman
Yes I am
Even when I’m a mess
I still put on a vest with an “S” on my chest
Oh yes,
I’m a superwoman

No One

No One

I just want you close
Where you can stay forever
You could be sure
That it will only get better

You and me together
Through the days and nights
I don’t worry ‘cause
Everything’s gonna be alright
People keep talking
They could say what they like
But all I know is
Everything’s gonna be alright

No one, No One, No One
Can get in the way of what I’m feeling
No One, No One, No One
Can get in the way of what I feel for you

You, You
Can get in the way of what I feel for you

When the rain is pouring down
And my heart is hurting
You will always be around
This I know for certain

You and me together
Through the days and nights
I don’t worry ‘cause
Everything’s gonna be alright
People keep talking
They could say what they like
But all I know is
Everything’s gonna be alright

No one, No One, No One
Can get in the way of what I’m feeling
No One, No One, No One
Can get in the way of what I feel for you

You, You
Can get in the way of what I feel for you

I know
Some people search the world
To find
Something like what we have
I know
People will try, try to divide
Something so real
So ‘til the end of time
I’m telling you there’s

No one, No one, No one
Can get in the way of what I’m feeling
No one, No one, No one
Can get in the way of what I feel for you

Like You'll Never See Me Again

Like You'll Never See Me Again

If I had no more time
No more time left to be here
Would you cherish what we had?
Was I everything that
You were looking for?

If I couldn’t feel your touch
And no longer would you be here
I’d be wishing you were here
To be everything that
I’ve been looking for

I don’t want to forget the present is a gift
And I don’t want to
Take for granted the time you may have here with me
‘Cause Lord only knows another day here’s not really guaranteed

So every time you hold me
Hold me like this is the last time
Every time you kiss me
Kiss me like you’ll never see me again
Every time you touch me
Touch me like this is the last time
Promise that you’ll love me
Love me like you’ll never see me again

How many really know what love is?
Millions never will
Do you know until you lose it
That it’s everything that we’ve been looking for
When I wake up in the morning
And you’re beside me
I’m so grateful that I’ve found
Everything that I been looking for

I don’t want to forget the present is a gift
And I don’t want to
Take for granted the time you may have here with me
‘Cause Lord only knows another day here’s not really guaranteed

So every time you hold me
Hold me like this is the last time
Every time you kiss me
Kiss me like you’ll never see me again
Every time you touch me
Touch me like this is the last time
Promise that you’ll love me
Love me like you’ll never see me again

Lesson Learned

Lesson Learned

He broke
My heart
And now it’s raining
Just to rub it in
I’m at your door
I feel so crazy ‘bout it
You’ll say I told you so
You saw it long ago
You knew he had to go
I finally came around
I’m back on solid ground
Can’t let it get me down

It’s alright
It’s alright

Yes I was burned
But I called it a lesson learned
Mistake overturned
But I called it a lesson learned
My soul has returned
So I call it lesson learned
Another lesson learned

Sometimes
Some lies
Can take a minute
To fully realize
His tears your eyes
30 seconds to apologize

You give it one more chance
Like the time before
But he already knows
You’d give 100 more
Until that night in bed
You wake up in a sweat
You’re racing to the door
Can’t take it anymore

Yes, I been burned
But I called it a lesson learned
Mistake overturned
But I called it a lesson learned
My soul has returned
So I call it a lesson learned
Another lesson learned

A life perfect ain’t perfect
If you don’t know what the struggle’s for
Falling down ain’t falling down
If you don’t cry when you hit the floor
It’s called the past ‘cause I’m getting past
And I ain’t nothing like I was before
You oughta see me now

Wreckless Love

Wreckless Love

Let’s go back in time
When seeing your ID on mine
Made me crazy
ohh baby
I'm sayin'
Let’s go back there
Let’s take it there

I'm talking ‘bout
Back in time
When you wanted to know my every move
Tried to keep it smooth
Keepin’ up with me
You drove me crazy ohh baby
Let's go back there
Let’s take it there

When you
Didn't know me
Didn't need me
Wanted to touch me
Couldn't leave me
I couldn't know how
Far it would go
I couldn't know if
This was for sure
We just could not
We just could not get enough of it baby, let’s go

Have that wreckless love
That crazy love
That off the wall won’t stop ‘til I get enough kind of love
I need that love
So baby, let’s go
Have that wreckless love
That crazy love
That I don’t really care
We can have it anywhere
Kind of love
That wreckless love

Let’s go back in time
When our kiss was brand new
An adventure not perfected
A little hesitant
Let’s go back there
Let’s take it there
Let’s go back in time
When forever was a minute, and eternity was a second
I’m stressing that we have to go back there
Let’s take it there

The Thing About Love

The Thing About Love

Love
Love will come find you
Just to remind you
Of who you are
Love
It will forsake you
Threaten to break you
Take what you’ve got

Everybody laughs
Everybody cries
Sure, it can hurt you, baby
But give it a little try
That’s the thing about love

Friends
Sometimes will blind you
Sneak up behind you
You can’t give enough
Then life
It will embrace you
Totally amaze you
So you don’t give up

Everybody laughs
Everybody cries
Sure, it can hurt you, baby
But give it a little try
That’s the thing about love

Oh
Tell me that I am not the only one that’s going through it all
Oh
Sometimes I feel like I’m the only one that’s going through it all
But it’s time
Oh, it’s time
For me to shine
It’s my time
It’s my time
For me to shine
It’s about time
It’s about time
For me to shine
Everybody laughs
Everybody cries
Sure, it can hurt you, baby
But give it a little try
That’s the thing about love

Teenage Love Affair

Teenage Love Affair

Can’t wait to get home
Baby, dial your number
Can you pick up the phone
‘Cause I wanna holla
Daydreamin’ ‘bout you
All day in school
Can’t concentrate
Wanna have your voice in my ear
‘Till Momma come and say it’s too late

‘Cause the lights are on outside
Wish there was somewhere to hide
‘Cause I just don’t want
To say goodbye
‘Cause you are my baby, baby

Nothing really matters
I don’t really care
What nobody tells me
I’m gonna be here
It’s a matter of extreme importance
My first teenage love affair
Eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh aaaaaay

I love our secret meetings
On the the 5th Floor staircase
I’m gonna give you this letter
Of all the things I can’t say
Want you to be my first
My last, my ending and beginning
I write your name in my book
Your last name, my first
I’m your Mrs.

‘Cause the lights are on outside
Wish there was somewhere to hide
‘Cause I just don’t want
To say goodbye
‘Cause you are my baby, baby

Nothing really matters
I don’t really care
What nobody tells me
I’m gonna be here
It’s a matter of extreme importantce
My first teenage love affair
Eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh aaaaaay

(Talking)
Hey, boy
You know I really like being with you
Just hanging out is fun
So maybe we can go to

(Singing)
First base
Because I feel you
2nd baseWant you to feel me too, boy
3rd base
Better pump up the brakes
Ooh baby, slow down
I gotta go home now

‘Cause the lights are on outside
Wish there was somewhere to hide
‘Cause I just don’t want
To say goodbye
‘Cause you are my baby, baby

Nothing really matters
I don’t really care
What nobody tells me
I’m gonna be here
It’s a matter of extreme importantce
My first teenage love affair
Eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh aaaaaay

I Need You

I Need You

The sand loves when
The waves come
The sky can’t wait
For the light of the sun

So how could you look me in the eye
And not see what, what I feel inside
Tell me how could you doubt the fact that I
Love You, I love you

Don’t you ever think like that
Don’t you ever, never do that
There will never be two things that go together better
Than you and me

Up needs down
Life needs death
And no needs
Yes, Yes, Yes
North needs South
East needs West
And no needs
Yes, Yes, Yes
I need you

Where Do We Go From Here

Where Do We Go From Here

We’re at the crossroads, my dear
Where do we go from here?
Maybe you won’t go, maybe you’ll stay
I’m gonna miss you either way
It’s such a lonely road

Where do we go from here?
All I can do is
Follow the tracks of my tears
Where do we go from here?
All I can do is
Follow the tracks of my tears

When I cry your name
Am I crying in vain?
Or am I waiting
Only to drown in pain
Don’t you do it
No, said don’t you leave me this way
I don’t know if I can lift my head
And face another day
It’s such a lonely road

Where do we go from here?
All I can do is
Follow the tracks of my tears
Where do we go from here?
All I can do is
Follow the tracks of my tears

Usually not the kind of girl
Who’s lost and looking for direction
Who could this be staring at me?
When I’m looking in the mirror
Tryna find a resolution
Are we too far gone to find our way home?

Prelude To A Kiss

Prelude To A Kiss

Sometimes I feel like I dont belong anywhere
And its gonna take so long for me to get somewhere
Sometimes I feel so heavy hearted
But I cant explain 'cause Im so guarded

But thats a lonely road to travel
And a heavy load to bear
And its a long, long way to heaven
But I gotta get there

Can you send an angel?
Can you send me an angel to guide me?

Tell You Something (Nana's Reprise)

Tell You Something (Nana's Reprise)

Get so caught up everyday
Tryna keep it all together
While the time just slips away
See, I know nothing lasts forever

Imagine there was no tomorrow
Imagine that I couldn't see your face
There'd be no limit to my sorrow
So all I can say

I wanna tell you something
Give you something
Show you in so many ways
‘Cause it would all mean nothing
If I don't say something
Before it all blows away
Don't wanna wait to bring you flowers
Wait another hour
Let alone another day
I wanna tell you something
Show you something
Won't wait ‘til it’s too late

I can't wait
I won’t wait
I don't wanna wait

Just a simple conversation
Just a moment is all it takes
I wanna be here just to listen
(I wanna be here)
And I don’t wanna hesitate

Imagine there was no tomorrow
Imagine that I couldn’t see your face
There'd be no limit to my sorrow
‘Cause there is nothing that could fill that space
Ohhh, did I put it off for too long?
I didn't say all that I have to say
I wanna take the time to write the wrong
Before we get to that place

I wanna tell you something
Give you something
Show you in so many ways
‘Cause it would all mean nothing
If I don't say something
Before it all blows away
Don't wanna wait to bring you flowers
Wait another hour
Let alone another day
I wanna tell you something
Show you something
Won't wait ‘til it’s too late

Just lean on
My shoulder
It's not over ‘til it’s over
Don’t worry ‘bout it
‘Cause I'm gonna
Make sure our bond gets stronger, yeah
I, don’t wanna wait until the storm
When something’s wrong and now you’re gone
And I can't find you

Sure Looks Good To Me

Sure Looks Good To Me

Life is cheap
Bittersweet
But it tastes good to me
Take my turn
Crash and burn
That’s how it’s supposed to be

So don’t rain
On my parade
Life’s too short
To waste one day
I’m gonna risk it all
The freedom to fall
Sure looks good to me

Time flies by
It leaves you behind
Take it naturally
Heaven knows
Oh, there’s so much more
More than what we see

So don’t rain
On my parade
Life’s too short
To waste one day
I’m gonna risk it all
The freedom to fall
Sure looks good to me

Deep in my mind
I’m secure with getting by
Want to see the light before I die
Before I lie in an empty space
The darkness comes
And I’ve been telling my soul in me and myself
We turn around
We’re getting old
But the lightning
Crashing
The foolish emotions
Of the bruises and the beauty of this moment that we’re feeling
And I feel like I’m seeing
The world inside of me
But I can tell you that I know
It’s getting easier to breathe
There’s a cold in the morning
An endless equation
Of who we’ve become
It’s a complex situation
So live, love life
Give love
Live, love life
Give love
Live, love life
Give love
‘Cause who are we anyway?

So don’t rain
On my parade
Life’s too short
To waste one day
I’m gonna risk it all
The freedom to fall
Sure looks good to me
