Element Of Freedom (Intro)

Element Of Freedom (Intro)

And the day came
When the risk it took
To remain tight and closed in the bud
Was more painful
Than the risk it took bloom

This is the element of freedom

Love Is Blind

Love Is Blind

Well people don't see what I see
Even when they're right there
Standing next to me
And all of my friends think I'm crazy for loving you
What they don't know
There's nothing else I can do

And it's too bad 'cause love is blind
(It's too bad It's too bad)
Oh oh oh
It's too bad 'cause love is blind
(It's too bad So Bad)
Oh oh oh oh oh
It's too bad 'cause love is blind
(It's too bad it don't matter Baby)
It's too bad 'cause love is blind
(It's too bad So Sad)
Oh oh oh oh oh

See people don't know what I know
They say I'm losing my mind
I know I'm losing control
Eh eh eh ehhh
All of my friends think I'm crazy but I don't care
I'm over the edge, no turning back
Belong to you I swear
Ay!

It's too bad 'cause love is blind
(It's too bad It's too bad)
Oh oh oh
It's too bad 'cause love is blind
(It's too bad So Bad)
Oh oh oh oh oh

Doesn't Mean Anything

Doesn't Mean Anything

Used to dream of being a millionaire without a care
But if I'm seeing my dreams and you aren't there
Cause it's over, that just won't be fair, darling
Rather be a poor woman living on the street, no food to eat
Cause I don't want no pie if I have to cry
Cause it's over when you said goodbye

All at once, I had it all
But it doesn't mean anything now that you're gone
From above, seems I had it all
But it doesn't mean anything since you're gone

Now I see myself through different eyes, it's no surprise
Being alone would make you realize
When it's over, all in love is fair
I should've been there, I should've been there, I should've should've

All at once, I had it all
But it doesn't mean anything now that you're gone
From above, seems I had it all
But it doesn't mean anything since you're gone

I know I push you away
What can I do that will say how I love?
Take these material things
They don't mean nothing
It's you that I want

All at once, I had it all
But it doesn't mean anything now that you're gone
From above, seems I had it all
But it doesn't mean anything since you're gone
(I should've been there, I should been there, I should've should've)

All at once, I had it all
But it doesn't mean anything now that you're gone
From above, seems I had it all
But it doesn't mean anything since you're gone

Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart

Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart

Even if you were a million miles away
I could still feel you in my bed
Near me, touch me, feel me
And even at the bottom of the sea
I could still hear inside my head
Tellin' me, touch me, feel me

And all the time you were tellin' me lies

So tonight, I'm gonna find a way to make it without you
Tonight I'm gonna find a way to make it without you
I'm gonna hold on to the times that we had tonight
I'm gonna find a way to make it without you

Have you ever tried sleeping with a broken heart?
Well, you could try sleeping in my bed

Lonely, own me nobody ever shut it down like you
You wore the crown
You made my body feel heaven bound
Why don't you hold me
Need me, I thought you told me
You'd never leave me

Looking in the sky I could see your face
And I know right where I fit in
Take me, make me, you know that I'll always be in love
With you
Right til the end Oh

So tonight, I'm gonna find a way to make it without you
Tonight I'm gonna find a way to make it without you
I'm gonna hold on to the times that we had tonight
I'm gonna find a way to make it without you

Anybody could've told you right from the start
It's bout to fall apart
So rather than hold onto a broken dream
I'll just hold on to love

And I could find a way to make it
Don't hold on too tight
I'll make it without you tonight

So tonight, I'm gonna find a way to make it without you
Tonight I'm gonna find a way to make it without you
I'm gonna hold onto the times we had tonight
I'm gonna find a way to make it without you

Wait Til You See My Smile

Wait Til You See My Smile

When the wind is blowing in your face
Sometimes in life you don't see straight
Pray to Him, He will show
When your head is in a certain place
Nobody around to make you safe
Stand strong and you will grow

[Chorus:]
Oh
Wait till you see my smile
Oh
Wait till they see your smile

Don't they love to see you down
Kick you while you are on ground
Don't let emotions show
People always speculate
Don't let it get in your way
See they say things they don't know

[Chorus]

So you're doing better now
Everybody comes around
But you don't really need 'em
'Cause you're stronger and you're better
And you're ready for whatever

[Chorus x2]

That's How Strong My Love Is

That's How Strong My Love Is

Some people they call me crazy
For falling in love with you
They can take me and lock me away baby
'Cause there's nothing those bars can do

I'll be the rising moon after the setting sun
Just to let you know you'll always have someone
I'll be the clearest day when the rain is done
So you'll always know

Through the shake of an earthquake
I will never fall
That's how strong my love is
Like a ship through the storm
We can risk it all
That's how strong my love is

I used to feel kinda lonely
Cause the world it can be so fake
All that matters I'm telling you
Is you and me only
And the fortress from love we'd make

I'll be the water you need in the desert land
Just to let you know you'll always have my hand
I'll be the woman you need to be a better man
So you'll always know

Through the shake of an earthquake
I will never fall
That's how strong my love is
Like a ship through the storm
We can risk it all
That's how strong my love is

Oh, can't nothing break us down
Oh, 'cause we are heaven bound
Like the mountain standing tall...
Immovable; we're here to stay
Oh, can't nothing get in the way

Through the shake of an earthquake
I will never fall (I will never fall)
That's how strong my love is (that's how strong my love is)
Like a ship through the storm
We can risk it all (we can risk it all)
That's how strong my love is (that love is)

Through the deepest waters
I won't let you drown (I won't let you drown Ohh!)
That's how strong my love is (Oh that's how strong my love, my love, my love)
Cause we're the moon in the sky
That will never come down (never come down)
That's how strong my love is (Oh that's how strong my love is)
That's how strong my love is
That's how strong my love is

Un-Thinkable (I'm Ready)

Un-Thinkable (I'm Ready)

[Verse 1:]
Moment of honesty
Someone's gotta take the lead tonight
Whose it gonna be?
I'm gonna sit right here
And tell you all that comes to me
If you have something to say
You should say it right now
([Drake:] You should say it right now)

You ready?

[Bridge:]
You give me a feeling that I never felt before
And I deserve it, I think I deserve it
([Drake:] I deserve it, I think it deserve it..Let it go)
It's becoming something that's impossible to ignore
And I can't take it
([Drake:] I can't take it)

[Chorus - Alicia & Drake:]
I was wondering maybe
Could I make you my baby
If we do the unthinkable would it make us look crazy
If you ask me I'm ready
([Echo:] I'm ready, I'm ready)
If you ask me I'm ready
([Echo:] I'm ready, I'm ready)

[Verse 2:]
I know you once said to me
"This is exactly how it should feel when it's meant to be"
Time is only wasting so why wait for eventually?
If we gon' do something 'bout it
We should do it right now
([Drake:] We should do it right now)

Bay, uh

[Bridge:]
You give me a feeling that I never felt before
And I deserve it, I know I deserve it
([Drake:] I deserve it, I know I deserve it. Let it go)
Its becoming something that's impossible to ignore
It's what we make it
([Drake:] It's what we make it)

[Chorus - Alicia & Drake:]
I was wondering maybe
Could I make you my baby
If we do the unthinkable would it make us look crazy
Or would it be so beautiful either way I'm sayin'
If you ask me I'm ready
([Echo:] I'm ready I'm ready)
If you ask me I'm ready
([Echo:] I'm ready)

Yeah, sing...

[Hook:]
Why give up before we try
Feel the lows before the highs
Clip our wings before we fly away
I can't say I came prepared
I'm suspended in the air
Won't you come be in the sky with me

[Chorus - Alicia & Drake:]
I was wondering maybe
Could I make you my baby
If we do the unthinkable would it make us look crazy
Or would it be so beautiful either way I'm sayin'
If you ask me I'm ready
([Echo:] I'm ready, I'm ready)
If you ask me I'm ready
([Echo:] I'm ready, I'm ready)

Love Is My Disease

Love Is My Disease

When you're gone it feels like,
My whole world's gone with you
I thought love would be my cure
But now it's my disease
I try to act mature
But I'm a baby when you leave
How can I ever get used to being without you?

(yeah)

Baby, baby, baby, baby
Am I addicted
When I need you here all the time?
And I'm not sure if this is healthy
Is it a sickness?
'cuz I feel like I'm losing my mind

And I know that there's no medicine
Nothing I can take, no remedy
Baby please stay

(ohohoohh)
When you're gone it feels like,
My whole world's gone with you
I thought love would be my cure
But now it's my disease (my disease)
I try to act mature
But I'm a baby when you leave
How can I ever get used to being without you?

Oh oh oh baby, baby, baby
I get a fever
Just the thought of you leaving my side
Ohohhhh
And I'm not the same 'til you're back holding me
That's all I need

(oh yeah)
When you're gone it feels like (when you're gone baby)
My whole worlds gone with you (gone with you)
I thought love would be my cure
But now its my disease (my disease)
I try to act mature
But I'm a baby when you leave
How can I ever get used to being without you

Woah woah
Here's what I'm going through when your gone
Some serious symptoms of withdrawal
(ohohoh)
So sick of turning in my bed
Waking up drenched in a cold sweat
(ohohoh)
Lying here lonely for you
What am I supposed to do
When I'm stuck and I cant get enough of your lovvvee

Ohohoh woahhh Baby

When you're gone it feels like (when your gone baby)
My whole world's gone with you (gone with you)
I thought love would be my cure
But now it's my disease (my disease)
I try to act mature
But I'm a baby when you leave
How can I ever get used to being without you?

Like The Sea

Like The Sea

[Chorus:]
Love is like the sea
Leaves you on your knees
Then it pulls you in
Then it takes you, takes you
Over, over
Love is like the sea
Leaves you on your knees
First you're floating high
Then takes you takes you
Under under

Well it's cold
Cold under water
In the night time
But I dove
Dove to the bottom
To see what I'd find

That's when I saw a light
A glowing paradise
Thought I'd stay a while
It's been calling me underwater, child
Everything that I ever dreamed

Taking my breath away
Currents got hold of me
Sweeping me away
Wish that I could stay
Takes me to the top
It's the cycle that never stops

Love is like the sea
Leaves you on your knees
Then it pulls you in
Then it takes you, takes you
Over, over
Love is like the sea
Leaves you on your knees
First you're floating high
Then takes you takes you
Under under

(takes you takes you over)
(takes you takes you under)
(takes you takes you over)
Over!
(takes you takes you under)

Say:

I've been told
Told you only find it once in a lifetime
So you better hold
Hold on stronger then ever
Like it's the last time

So when you see the light
Like a ship in the night
You have found the place
You been looking for
Like a distant shore
Don't you ever look back again

Here's something you should know (know)
The sea is still in control ([spoken:] that's right)
Cherish everyday
Cause you never know
It can take away
The very thing that you love the most (love the most)

Love is like the sea
Leaves you on your knees
Then it pulls you in
Then it takes you, takes you (takes you, takes you over)
Over, over
Love is like the sea
Leaves you on your knees (leaves you on your knees)
First you're floating high
Then takes you takes you (takes you, takes you under)
Under under

(takes you takes you over) oh
(takes you takes you under)
(takes you takes you over) so far
(takes you takes you under)
Listen, love is like the sea yeah

(takes you takes you over)
(takes you takes you under) can you feel the pull?
(takes you takes you over) it's calling you
(takes you takes you under)

Love is like the sea
Leaves you on your knees
Then it pulls you in
(if you ever felt this way before)
Then it takes you, takes you
Over, (then you know)
Over
Love is like the sea
Leaves you on your knees
First you're floating high
(oh get down on your knees)
Then it takes you takes you
Under under
(take me away)

Distance And Time

Distance And Time

You are always on my mind
All I do is count the days
Where are you now?

I know I never let you down
I will never go away

I really wish that you'd stay but what can we do
All the days that you've been gone I dreamed about you
And I anticipate the day that you will come home, home, home

No matter how far you are
No matter how long it takes him
Through distance and time
I'll be waiting

And if you have to walk a million miles
I'll wait a million days to see you smile
Distance and time, I'll be waiting

Distance and time, I'll be waiting
Will you take a train, to meet me where I am
Are you on your way?

All I do is count the days
Where are you now?

How It Feels To Fly

How It Feels To Fly

Have you ever felt so strong
That it made you feel weak
Long days
Long nights
And you just can't sleep

Have you ever been so sure
That it gave you cold feet
That felt all bare
You can feel your heart beat

Well I never knew this feeling never
Now I hope it stays and last forever
I am riding high
I don't want to come down
Hope my wings don't fail me now
And If I can touch the sky
I'd risk to fall just to know how it feels to fly

In the room full of people
Feels like no one's around
Got your head in the clouds
And your feet are off the ground

Say I never knew this feeling, never
Now I hope it stays and last forever

Empire State Of Mind (Part II) Broken Down

Empire State Of Mind (Part II) Broken Down

Oooh oooh, New York [x2]

Grew up in a town,
That is famous as a place of movie scenes
Noise is always loud
There are sirens all around
And the streets are mean
If I could make it here
I could make it anywhere
That's what they say
Seeing my face in lights
Or my name in marquees found down Broadway

Even if it ain't all it seems
I got a pocketful of dreams
Baby, I'm from

[Chorus:]
New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There's nothing you can't do
Now you're in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Hear it for New York, New York, New York

On the avenue, there ain't never a curfew
Ladies work so hard
Such a melting pot on the corner selling rock
Preachers pray to God
Hail a gypsy cab
Takes me down from Harlem to the Brooklyn Bridge
Someone sleeps tonight with a hunger
For more than from an empty fridge

I'm going to make it by any means
I got a pocketful of dreams
Baby, I'm from

[Chorus x2:]
New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There's nothing you can't do
Now you're in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Hear it for New York, New York, New York

One hand in the air for the big city
Street lights, big dreams, all looking pretty
No place in the world that can compared
Put your lighters in the air
Everybody say yeah, yeah yeah

[Chorus:]
New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There's nothing you can't do
Now you're in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Hear it for New York, New York, New York
