[Verse 1]
Sometimes as women we give more than we should
To a man that just don’t treat us good, No
Gave him my heart my time
Did all that I could in the past to keep him here with me, yeah
But now I woke up, Opened both my eyes up
Realize that I don’t need any other.
Man, if you can’t love me equally,
Then you don’t need to be with me
Nothing more beautiful then knowing you’re worth
And finally, I know exactly what I deserve

[Chorus]
I’m doin me, this time around
I’m doin’ me, don’t need you now
I rather be by myself, I won’t let your drama hold me down
I’m doin’ me, this time around
I’m doin me, I’ve finally found
I’d rather be by myself, I’m doin’ me.

[Verse 2]
Won’t spend another minute wasting my time
On a man, hey, that only tells me lies, no
Aint saying that I don’t need love
But them games, I don’t need that in my life, no
(Chorus)
I’m doin me, this time around
I’m doin’ me, don’t need you now
I rather be by myself, I won’t let your drama hold me down
I’m doin’ me, this time around
I’m doin me, I’ve finally found
I’d rather be by myself, I’m doin’ me.

I could pray for you to act right everyday
But it ain’t up to me to make you change
Life is too damn short to live unhappily
So I’m being selfish and putting myself in first place

[Chorus]
I’m doin me, this time around
I’m doin’ me, don’t need you now
I rather be by myself, I won’t let your drama hold me down
I’m doin’ me, this time around
I’m doin me, I’ve finally found
I’d rather be by myself, I’m doin’ me.

I’m doing me
This time around
I’m doing me
This time around
No more crying, going thru hell
It’s so good, I’m lovin myself
I’m doin’ me
This time around
I’m doin’ me
I’m doin’ me
Yeah Yeah
I’m doin’ me
Yeah Yeah


. . .


Every now and then
I still get a flashback
Of the time I spent
Thinking you could be that one
Should I have just kept your love?

As I understand,
We did have some good times
On the other hand,
Got me crying all night
It was too much for my mind

So even though I left you
I can't forget you

'Cause when I think about you
It's bittersweet, it's bittersweet
Guess I'll always love you
It's bittersweet, it's bittersweet

When we were together
You ain't treat me right
Damn I really love you
I ain't gonna lie

'Cause when I think about you
It's bittersweet...

I still have the box
Full of things you gave me
Start to throw it out
Something always stops me, yeah
I'm not as over you as I say
Deep inside my heart
I made the right decision
But it's kinda hard
When your mind is thinking of,
Did I make a big mistake?

Even though I left you
I can't forget you

'Cause when I think about you
It's bittersweet, it's bittersweet
Guess I'll always love you
It's bittersweet, it's bittersweet

When we were together
You ain't treat me right
Damn I really love you
I ain't gonna lie

When I think about you
It's bittersweet...

See I don't understand
Like, somebody is gonna get hurt
Out of this situation
And you just hope it's not you

At times...

Part of me wants you, part of me don't
Part of me is missing you, part of me is gone
Part of me is saying that the love is still strong,
Part of me is letting go

So even though I left you
I can't forget you

'Cause when I think about you
It's bittersweet, it's bittersweet
Guess I'll always love you
It's bittersweet, it's bittersweet

When we were together
You ain't treat me right
Damn I really love you
I ain't gonna lie

When I think about you, it's bittersweet

It's bittersweet...

. . .


[Verse:]
If we dont got it I'll go get it (it ain't a thang)
And if it's broken I'll fix it (I dont complain)
But now see it's gettin' a little out of hand,
Cook, cleaning, providing taking care of little man
You want to talk about who's wearing the pants
Baby well I dont understand

[Chorus 2x:]
(If you gone) be the man,
Then be the man,
Cause if you can't
Baby I can,
I can and I will so
Figure it out
Which one of us gone be the man of the house

[Verse:]
(yeah, hey)
Boy, I just don't get it
(You ain't supposed to act like a little boy)
Just cause I'm independent
(Noooooooo)
You walk around with your chest out
Like you the one
But if I don't do it
Then it won't get done
I'm a good woman
But I'm not dumb
You gone be the man or my son

[Chorus 2x:]
(If you gone) be the man,
Then be the man,
Cause if you can't
Baby I can,
I can and I will so
Figure it out
Which one of us gone be the man of the house

[Bridge:]
And I'm sick and tired of
Being the boss for us
(being the boss for us)
No this ain't the kind of love
It's supposed to be
You want to be
King of the castle
(ohhhh, you want to be)
You want to be captain
You gone have to work a little bit harder for that to happen

[Chorus 4x:]
(If you gone) be the man,
Then be the man,
Cause if you cant
Baby I can,
I can and I will so
Figure it out
Which one of us gone be the man of the house

. . .

VERSE 1
Lately I have been myself,
cause I met the man of my dreams. See his words are perfection, he says all the right things. I look forward to his kisses, everytime that I open my eyes. Its such a wonderful present, Its like a beautiful suprise.

CHORUS
See I dont know what it is but I trust him (trust him) with all of my love, with all of my love. And I all really wanna do is touch him (touch him) if it isn't too much if it isn't too much.

VERSE 2
See I just wanna be around you dear, 365 days a year. I wanna share my whole world with you, baby Im so glad you're here. I get mad when I think about it. For pourin' out all of my soul, that I wasted on them other fellas, should've met a long time ago.

[CHORUS]

BRIDGE
I know it's kind of scary of the both of us, I make it just another cause I'm so in love. Its true. And baby you don't have to worry, I can spend the rest of my life just getting to know you... Yeahhh

[CHORUS 2x]

. . .


Somethings going on; And Im not saying your to blame
I know Im not your girl, I know your not my man
But somethings wrong, I can't explain

After the waste of time, love lets keep it plain (Don't wanna play)
Cause boy I'm grown and ya, damn near twice my age
So tell me what's happening

So let me know just why i'm feeling strange
Just let me know boy if your feelings changed
Because I feel the way I feel, And I wont let it go until
You let me know cause it ain't feeling the same

Chorus
It's gone-eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Along with games the cars the lies, the thrill is gone
So gone-eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Though it was fun but now we're done the thrill is done

Was is it just chase, You acting like you need some space
Perhaps it was the fact, you want what you can't have
And I won't let you get your way
Why do you pick me up just to cast me away (the love I gave)
Never quite enough, you really got me stuck
I need for you to set it straight.


But let me know just why i'm feeling strange
Just let me know boy if your feelings changed
Because I feel the way I feel, And I wont let go it until
You let me know cause it ain't feeling the same

Chorus
It's gone-eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Along with games the cars the lies, the thrill is gone
So gone-eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Though it was fun but now we're done the thrill is done

Cee-Lo (Rap)

A cocktail keeps me company
While the piano man plays one for me
So similar situation must've sent you
Cause this is too cool to be coincidental

And Oh yes let's not forget
You look like been dipped in hot chocolate
And I means lots of it
So instead of stay we did the opposite
At a red light but I didn't stop for Sh*t!

It's cool, I don't kiss and tell
Oh lord, you don't listen well
It's pleasure...Pains not in my planning
Damn I thought we had a understanfing


Chorus
It's gone-eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Along with games the cars the lies, the thrill is gone
So gone-eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Though it was fun but now we're done the thrill is done


. . .


Yeahhh, Feel like falling in love tonight (turn the lights off)

[Verse 1]
All the suns aligning, it feels perfect,
Melodies and verses flowing through my mind.
I wanna lean in for a kiss, I know its worth it,
I barely know you baby, but I know it's time.

[Chorus]
You see the way the strobe lights are dancing,
I look in your eyes and I feel like falling in love tonight (tonight)
Falling in love tonight,
And baby I'm not fore-taking chances (romance is in the air)
Feel like falling in love tonight,
Falling' in love tonight (I hope you're ready baby)
And when the moon gets high, let's start with some kissing (falling in love tonight)
I heard the wind whisper your name in the air(falling in love tonight)
Last night you're the one I was missing (falling in love tonight)
But tonight you're standing right there (falling in love tonight)

[Verse 2]
It's like a movie, the DJ plays the soundtrack,
And I feel like I found that man who owns my heart.
I shoulda knew it, the moment that you blew in,
You know what you're doing, the best part is about to start.

[Chorus]
You see the way the strobe lights are dancing,
I look in your eyes and I feel like falling in love tonight (tonight)
Falling in love tonight,
And baby I'm not fore-taking chances (romance is in the air)
Feel like falling in love tonight,
Falling' in love tonight (I hope you're ready baby)
And when the moon gets high, let's start with some kissing (falling in love tonight)
I heard the wind whisper your name in the air (falling in love tonight)
Last night you're the one I was missing (falling in love tonight)
But tonight you're standing right there (falling in love tonight)

And it's like I'm up on (?)
'Cause I know I found my,
I really think I found my (?) in these clouds,
Caught up in a trance here,
When I saw you stand there,
I think I'm ready baby,

[Chorus]
You see the way the strobe lights are dancing,
I look in your eyes and I feel like falling in love tonight (tonight)
Falling in love tonight,
And baby I'm not fore-taking chances (romance is in the air)
Feel like falling in love tonight,
Falling' in love tonight (I hope you're ready baby)
And when the moon gets high, let's start with some kissing (falling in love tonight)
I heard the wind whisper your name in the air (falling in love tonight)
Last night you're the one I was missing (falling in love tonight)
But tonight you're standing right there (falling in love tonight)

Verse 1
I'm driving in circles, shoulda bought that new phone
I can't find my way to, all the places I call home
I'm (on my own)
I'm at the station pumping gas, yeah I'm taking out the trash
Im (all alone)
And who's there? Who's there?

Hook:
Since you been gone, I learned how to move on
How to be myself, I don't need nobody help
I'm doing so good, I forgot that I could
Live like this, woah

Chorus:
First step, take a deep breath
You don't need a reason why
You can, you can take, take time
You can, you can walk, run, dive
Close call, you think you might fall
But all you gotta do is try
Even angels, even angels learn to fly

Verse 2:
Coming home and it's late night, shoulda left the lights on
I can't help but imagine, all the things that could go wrong
I'm (on my own)
I'm in the kitchen on the chair, reaching for the top shelf
I'm (all alone)
And I'm ok, I'm alright

Hook:
Since you been gone, I learned how to move on
How to be myself, I don't need nobody help
Im doing so good, I forgot that I could
Live like this, woah

Chorus:
First step, take a deep breath
You don't need a reason why
You can, you can take, take time
You can, you can walk, run, dive
Close call, you think you might fall
But all you gotta do is try
Even angels, even angels learn to fly

Bridge:
Everyday I'm stronger, can't get better, if it, if it dont hurt
Why? Oh Why? Oh Why?
See me in my next life
Cause heartbreaks a teacher, and I'll love, I'll love a little bit deeper
Why? Oh Why? Oh Why?
Yeah

Chorus:
First step, take a deep breath
You don't need a reason why
You can, you can take, take time
You can, you can walk, run, dive
Close call, you think you might fall
But all you gotta do is try
Even angels, even angels learn to FLY
Fly Fly Fly

Close call, you think you might fall
But all you gotta do is try
Even angels, even angels learn how to fly

. . .


I don't need you to love me
I've got my sister, I can't feel her now
She may not be here, but she's still mine
'n I know, she still loves me
I've got my children, I can't hold them now
They may not be here, but they still mine
'n I know
I know I still love them
Hey
Got my house
It still keeps the cold out
Got my chair
When my body can't hold out
Got my hands doin things like they s'post to
Showing my heart to the folks that I'm close to
I got my eyes though they don't see as far now
They see more 'bout how things really are now
I'm gonna take a deep breath
Hey
I'm gonna hold my head up
Gonna put my shoulders back
And look you straight in the eye
I'm gonna flirt with somebody
When they walk by
I'm gonna sing out
Sing out yeah
I believe I have inside of me
Everything that I need to live a bountiful life
With all the love inside of me
I'll stand as tall as the tallest tree
And I'm thankful for each day that I'm given
Both the easy and the hard ones I'm livin'
But most of all
Yes I'm thankful for lovin' who I really am
I'm beautiful
Yes I'm beautiful
And I'm here
Yes you are, you are here.

. . .


See Ive been to a place, called hell on earth,
when your bodys insane, but your heart really
burns, that kind of pain, spoil like a curse.
[Yeah, eah]

I was down on the ground, and the tears wouldnt
come, i could not make a sound, and my voice
wouldnt budge, with nobody around, they assumed
I was dying [Hey, Eh]

When I got ready to close my eyes, kiss my
chance at love goodbye, here comes hope like a ray of light it was your baby saying Oh, you aint gotta climb this mountain alooooooone. Just take my hand, and I'll fight for you when you can't be
strooooooooong. The worst part is over, the worst
part is over. Im here to hold ya. The worst part is over.

See the measure of love, aint when youre up. Its
bout who sticks around, when you cant see the sun,
and youre proven to be, someone I can trust [Yeah, Eh]

Cause when I got ready to close my eyes (close
my eyes), kiss my chance at love goodbye (hey), here comes hope like a ray of light (hey) it was your
baby saying oh, you aint gotta climb this mountain alone(you aint gotta climb this mountain alone). Just take my hands(take my hand), and I'll fight for you when you can't be strong. (fight for you when you cant be strong)The worst part is over (o-over). The worst part is over (h' over). Im here to hold ya (Im hear to hold ya). The worst part is over. (Yeahhh..)

Youre the extra bit of faith when Im giving up. That little boost of strength when Im against the wall. In every way youve shown, youre the definition of love, cause you let me know.

Nooooo. You aint you aint gotta climb this mountain alooone. Just take my hand yeaaaaaaahhh, and I'll fight for you when you can't be strong. The worst part is over, the worst part is over. Its over, Im here to hold ya. Yeah Ehh yeahhh eeehh. The worst part is over.

See I've been to a place, called hell on earth,
but that part is overrrrr.
