In love, and more in love, in love, oh

. . .


[Intro]
It’s all about you now, baby
Silly me, however you want it
Strings, strings, or no strings

Ain’t no sunshine since you’ve been gone
Only rain, pain, and cloudy days spent all alone
If I could turn back time, I swear that it would be
The way it was when I was down for you
And you was down for me

[1]
Let no temptations
Get a hold of me
Said as long as you take care of home
Everything will be everything
Apology after apology
Girl I guess you stopped feelin' me
No more, I love you, no jealousy
I’m ready to change
Just don’t leave me

[2]
Strings, strings or no strings
Baby I’ll do anything
To get your love back
There could be strings
Or no strings attached

[Repeat 2]

Ooh baby, you once were committed
But I guessed I changed your mind
I’m willing to admit it
Girl I gave you a hard time
I just don’t want you to go
Throw away the good things we shared
I’ll leave it to you how fast we move
Girl I know you still care

[Repeat 1]

[Repeat 2]
[Repeat 2]

Tell me how do you want me?
How do you need me?
How do you want me babe?
I’m willing to change, change, oh
I can’t stand it here all by myself
Looking at the walls, I need ya baby
Oh baby I'm falling apart

[3]
I’m the one who blew this good thing
So tell me what you want me to do
I’m the one who blew this good thing
Will there be strings, strings or no strings

[Repeat 3 until fade]

(featuring Kelly Price)

Kelly:
Candle light and chocolate kisses
Calls to say you missed me when we started

Gerald:
Your nails was done, your hair was pressed
I miss the way you used to dress
When I met you

Kelly:
I gave my best 4 years, my time was wasted

Gerald:
See I shared your fears, and the tears you cried I tasted

Kelly:
Baby, I loved your kids, opened up my home. Yes I did

Gerald:
Paid your mama's bills. Gave you all when
you had nothing.

Chorus
Love you so, can't let go.
Never thought I'd be without you
Can't imagine life without you
walk away, everyday.
Told me that you'd never leave.
But now you say it hurts too much to stay.

Kelly:
Too much to stay

Gerald:
Said it's hard for me
Your lover's stayin with his mom
Tell me was it worth the drama oh baby
See we got our own kids yeah

Kelly:
If there had to be another.

And drivin our sh.... mmmmmm

Gerald:

Kelly:
Baby that was the past. You don't roll like you used

Gerald:
Said what's my motivation
Girl I'm better off alone.

Kelly:
Tell me why can't we just walk away.

Gerald and Kelly:
Why are we so torn?

Chorus

Both:
Never meant to hurt you.
G: you walk away from me

Kelly:
Can't it be all that we have hoped and prayed for

Gerald:
Oh baby, everything. Our hopes and dreams they are
no longer. We can't go back the way it used to be
said now really.

Chorus

Gerald:
Tryin to make you understand that I only just a man

Kelly:
Going to jail cause I kill yo girl
Going to jail cause I kill yo girl

Gerald:
Come on now don't do this now

Kelly:
Your body belongs to me
She can't have you no matter what she thinks
No no no no no no no no no



. . .



Guess you never know a good thing
When it's right in your face
you've been abused for so long
Love gets tainted and it all seems the same
I guess it's unbelievable
Someone could love you like this
Well time ain't no object and money ain't a thing
When you have someone to ease the pain

Let me be the smile on your face
And be your stars and your moon
I wanna be your sunny day
Can I be your favorite tune?
I wanna be your breakfast in bed
And baby I'll be your fool
Mr. Too Damn Good To You

Yes sir, hmm
you've been hurt so many times
You don't when love's for real
So you don't open up
Or give in to love
Or express how you feel
But just like Sunday Morning
I take it easy
Girl I'm gonna wait
Cause love it just ain't right
Without you by my side
Baby you're my soul mate
Baby I'll open doors
Be there for you any time
Cause that's what your man's supposed to do
I wanna cook for you
I will spoil you
Girl my whole objective is to please you
I'll run your bubble bath
Make you laugh
Girl through thick and thin I got your back
I ain't gon be pressin' you or stressin' you to make love
We got so much time for that

Repeat 1

Baby, baby
I wanna be your shoulder when you need one to cry on
Hmm-hmm yeah
I wanna be your pillow when you need one to lie on, oh yeah
I wanna be the spot light that shines on ya
Girl I wanna write the girl is mine on ya, yes I am
I wanna be your thought in your daydreams
I wanna be your everything, your everything
(Mr. Too Damn Good To You)
I wanna be everything you ever thought you wanted
(Mr. Too Damn Good To You)
Ever needed baby, yeah
Girl I wanna shout about it
You wanna tell the world about it
(Mr. Too Damn Good To You)
And can't nobody else believe me
Youíll have everything you've needed, yeah, yeah
(Mr. Too Damn Good To You)
I'm gonna be so so good to you



. . .


[Intro]
You brotha's
Ya'll forget you got a mama
Got a lady that stick with you through thick and thin
But you dog her
And you ain't been through half the shit she been

You step in the church
Every morning, six A.M., up from work
Daddy always kept it real
Taught you how a man s'pose to feel
Not afraid to cook and clean
Ain't even into the party scene
But no matter what you do
Every man that you meet
Want his cake and eat it too

[1]
She been lied to, cheated on
The victim of every sad song
Her mother and her father
Definition of the perfect daughter

But she can't find a man
Who done been half the things
She done been

If you out there raise your hand
Raise your hand
Check it out

You like the thought of makin love
Occassional kisses and a few hugs
Want a family, raise some kids
Just like your mamma and your daddy did yeah
But every guy you start to dig
Comes with baggage and no gig, yeah
(Got no kind of a job)
Got a baby mama, and alot of bills
You foot the bill, but he come and go at will

[Repeat 1]

Said, give your baby a standing ovation
Got her own college education
Raise her babies all alone
Always in a house but never at a home

[Repeat 1]

24 hours in labor (she done been)
she been abused by her man (she done been)
out there on the welfare (she done been)
ya'll don't seem to understand (she done been)
pms ing once a month (she done been)
scrapping up dollars to get the baby lunch (she done been)
left at the alter by her sucker man (she done been)
ya'll don't seem to understand (she done been)
you don't seem to understand (she done been)
called bitches and hoes for no reason (she done been)
getting reeked on by the man she was pleasing (she done been)
it was her best friend(she done been)

[Repeat 1]

. . .


Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t, no oh
Ah oh, ah oh, ah ooh
Ah oh, ah oh, ah ooh, ooh

[1]
Heart don’t tell me I’m wrong again
Cause that would be whack
And I don’t want to be that
Heart don’t tell me I’m wrong again
Cause it wouldn’t be fun
I think I’ve found the right one yeah

Not another gold digger
It’s just my luck, go figure
The good ones always pass me by
They always go to the next guy
Or I always get the one
Everybody else has done
Give her everything, I keep her lace
I must have sucker on my face

What the deal is?
I don’t deserve this
When I met her she said
She had her own apartment
I believe her
Tell me why is they always lying?
It was her system
She was kicked out for not paying rent
And now all my money’s spent
So tell me

[Repeat 1]

[2]
Na, na, na, na, na

Na, na, na, na, na, na, na
Oh heart don’t tell me I’m wrong

Not another Jazzy Belle
Say is it so prey tell
So she got a good game
But playing with love just ain’t my thing
And maybe I should settle down
And maybe start thinking ‘bout
Giving her my name
Ain’t it a shame love driving you insane
Not another but I love her
She remind me so much of my mother
That can’t be bad no
Cause my fingers hope and lingers
Hoping that I don’t have to look no further
Cause I can’t stand another heartbreak, no

[Repeat 1 x2]

Ah oh, ah oh, ah ooh
Ah oh, ah oh, ah ooh, ooh
Ah oh, ah oh, ah ooh
Ah oh, ah oh, ah ooh, ooh
I just want to get me a girl
And dance all night long
Dance all night long, long, long, long

[Repeat 1]

[Repeat 2 till end]

. . .


For so long I've wanted to say
You've changed the way I look at love
And I pray you stay here by my side
Cuz you see if you leave, forget existence
I would rather die, you ask why
Cuz when I'm with you I can fly
Baby, I can touch the sky

[1]
Don't take it away, no
Take your love away from me
Don't take it away, no
Without you I can't eat, breathe or sleep

You'll be takin' my sunshine, rainbows
You don't wanna do that girl
It'd be like takin' away a baby's
Ice cream, sprinkles
And I know you're not that kind of girl

You never said that you had plans to leave me

But I thought I tell you while
I had the chance and a love this strong
For so many ways, it was too late
To express the happiness
Don't know what to do
After the love is gone
They can't even carry on

[Repeat 1]

See with you I'm complete
Girl, you are so sweet
Nothing can compare to you being there
You see, girl you know that I'll respect you
I never would neglect my responsibility to love you
So don't take it from me, no
No, no, no, no
Don't take it away
Don't take it away

[Repeat 1]
[Repeat 1]

She was like a fashion show
From head to toe
Something came over me
Something I couldn't see
I said that four letter word
L-O-V-E

First time shoulda been the last time
I shoulda stayed away
Being in love wasn't my thing
But uh oh, looks like another love TKO
Bit off more than I can chew
I done fell in love with you, yeah

[1]
Look what I done stuck my foot in
Turned around, fell in love again
Hope love don't let me down
Second time around

Turned around, fell in love again
Hope love don't let me down
The second time around

Oh, hope love won't let me down, no, no

And I don't mind playing the fool for you

Hey look what I done look what I done

Then you came around, came around came around
Dealin' with the drama from my baby mama
Tryin to keep my karma
You were my only friend, I had to let you in
Look what I done stuck my foot in

[Repeat 1]

I said I'd never love the sun no more
Cuz the pain of breakin' up just make me so
She'd never loved me quite the way you did
God sent you to me and I'mma try it again

My friends think I'm crazy
Don't want me to forget
That the first of every month
I'm just writing out checks
And checks and checks and checks
I done fell in love baby

Before you came around I asked myself
What is this thing called love
There were clouds, the rain kept pouring down
Then you brought the sun, yes you did
Showed me all the differences
Between a woman and a girl
Right then I knew I could be a good man
With you inside my world, my world, my world

I don't need to take a toke
Cuz I'm on a natural high
Everybody's blowing smoke
But girl you never lie
Friends say that we in a pinch
They're just hating their lies
I know they want what I got
It comes once in a lifetime, yeah

You're the reason why I sing
All of life's finer things
Like rainbows and shining stars
You're the reason why I sing
All of life's finer things
Like diamond rings and fancy cars
Baby you are

I was a bad seed
And you nourished me, encouraged me
'Till I grew tall as a tree, as a tree
You had patience to search
Find and bring out all the best in me, yes you did
You see things I couldn't see
My mental potential
Girl you showed me, yeah
Now it's a reality
And I promise for you I'm gonna be all that I can be

Repeat 1
Repeat 2

You are, you are, you are, you are
Baby you are, I mean it, I mean it babe
Baby you are, said you're number one in my book
And forever you got me hooked
Baby you are, you are, you are

Take it back girl, come on
Ooh who, ooh who
You're my shining star
Said baby, baby you are, you are, you are
Oh who, you're everything I need
Baby just stay here with me, you are

Repeat 2 until fade

[Intro]
Here we are again
In a different space
In a different time

I wouldn't let you slip away, ha
And I'll give you
These things

I want you to know how I feel about you
If I move too slow, it's cuz I'm shy about you, yeah
See I put you high on a pedistal

There's so many things that I wanna say, yeah
But I can't get past all your sexy ways, no

So I'm taking this chance and I offer you baby, baby

These things
These arms
These lips
To feel you, to hold you, to kiss you oh

These eyes
These sheets
To keep you, to see you, to love you

But you come around and I'm an open book, yes I am
