[Verse]
It's good to see you glad to be in your company
And it's so funny 'cause it brings back old memories
How it used to be and now you wanna come back
You said I was in too deep
You said I was too serious
And girl you broke my heart
When you broke it off between the two of us
Now it's a shame and now you wanna come back

[Chorus]
I can't give you my private line
'Cause you be calling me all the time
A year ago would have been fine
Now I gotta give you my service line
You can call me anytime

[Ad lib]

[Verse]
I never thought that I would get over you
You left me broken down lonely, sad and blue
And it's a shame and now you wanna come back
I finally realized that I could make it on my own
And it don't hurt no more that I'm all alone
Ain't it funny baby that you wanna come back

[Repeat chorus x2]

[Adlib]

I'll call you back I'll swear I'll get back with you
All you gotta do, gotta do is call me
Call me, call me, call me on my service line
I've gotten over you baby
And I don't need that attitude
You can call me anytime

[Repeat chorus]

[Ad lib]

[Fade]

. . .


All your friends are telling you
You should have a fancy car and diamond rings
But Girl you know all good things come in time

Girl you know I'll do just about anything
To see a smile upon your face
So don't let your friends go messing with
your mind

Girl you know there ain't nothing
I won't do for you and Baby don't
Don't ever doubt my love 'cause it's true

Baby hold on to me
See I'm a special kind
A man that is hard to find
Told you a thousand times
Baby hold on to me

[Repeat 1]

Oh Girl wasn't I there when he made you cry
And who was there to comfort you
When he said bye bye bye bye bye Baby

Girl I give you my time here is my money
All of my heart and you'll be so sorry Baby
If we were to ever part
And Girl you know
That I would never hurt you
And Girl you know
That I would never desert you

Better hold on to me
See I'm a special knid
A man that is hard to find
Told you a thousand times
Baby hold on to me

[Repeat 1]

I wanna be everthing that you need
And I promise yes I promise Baby
To be there for you baby

[Repeat 1]

[Ad lib]

[Repeat 1 x3]

In my new life I met plenty of girls
But none that make me wanna do
The things you make me do

See Lord knows I tried to keep you
Satisfied the best way that i could

The way that you laid it on me

Keep on laying it on me Baby
I wanna learn all the things
To keep you ocupied

Her everything I have
To offer and even more

Give up his cars all of his dreams

I'm waiting
For someone who could turn my life
around
Someone who could make me feel
The way I used to feel
But she never comes

I'm searching
But there's no one that I'd care to talk
about
And all the lovers in the world
Don't amount to much
'Cause what I want is just one love

And I'd give anything
And everything
To fall in love
Just this one time
I'd like to find
What I've been dreaming of
Well I could find someone to hold me
But that wouldn't be enough
But I'd give anything
To fall in love

Now I lay here
I'd rather not be sleeping by myself
staring at the wall
I question it all
Will she ever come

And I'd give anything
And everything
To fall in love
Just this one time
I'd like to find
What I've been dreaming of
Well I could find someone to hold me
But that wouldn't be enough...
But I'd give anything
To fall in love

I'm gonna keep on making wishes
I'm gonna keep on being strong
I won't settle for less than true love
I'm gonna keep in holdin' on
I would give

And I'd give anything
And everything
To fall in love
Just this one time
I'd like to find
What I've been dreaming of
Well I could find someone
to hold me
But that wouldn't be
enough
But I'd give anything
To fall in love

I'd give anything
to fall in love

In love...

. . .


Never thought you bring me so much pain
Lord knows I tried to keep you happy girl
in ever way
out on the road doing my thang trying to
keep you laced
trying to keep a smile upon your face girl
was all my happiness in vain
or did I place in you a little too much faith
now nothing but memories
never though that this would be the price I
had to pay

[Chorus]
You took my heart you took my car you took
my crib
got the nerves to take my kids
got the nerves to take my kids
you took my love and my life
girl you took my soul
taking everything from me
taking everything from me
you took my heart girl you took my car
and you took my crib trying to take my kids
girl you took my love than you took my soul
taking everything everything everything
everything everything

And now I'm sitting all alone
trying to figure out where you and I went
wrong
you know it makes me wanna cry
just thinking about it makes me wanna lay
down and die
for the life of me I don't know how
that you could take for granted and disregard
our sacred vows
now nothing but memories
never though that this would be the price I
had to pay

[Chorus]
You took my heat girl you took my cars
trying to take my crib
got the nerve to take my kids
got the nerve to take my kids
and take my love an my life
girl you took my soul
you've taking everything from me
taking everything from me
you took my heart my pride
my crib my kids my love my soul

Now I ain't never been no fool
I've always tried to keep my cool
I was faithful to you never abuse you or
use you
even though sometimes you make me want to
but I love you
you should try to understand girl that I
was your man
my life was in your hands baby was shinning
over everything
now you're gone and I'm just gonna be a
weekend Daddy baby
can I call you baby or is that just a passing
thing

[Chorus]

. . .


[Verse 1]

I recalled when we first met, a long
time ago. How could I forget the way
I felt, when I first laid eyes on
you. I remember saying to my friends,
there is my future wife; and then, I
took the steps to meet someone who
would change my life.

It had to be my destiny

[Chorus:]

Cuz, I was made to love ya/my hands
to touch ya/my arms to hold ya/my legs
to stand/my time to spend,with you
forever. I was made, made to love ya.
My lips to kiss ya/my eyes to see
you/my legs to stand/my time to spend
with you forever and ever. I was made
[I was made] made to love ya [made to
love ya.]

[Verse 2]

I remember our first date, our first
argument. Our very first break up to
make up, that got us to this moment.
And every girlfriend and every one
night stand, every heartbreak, every
heartache, led me to ya, it drove me
to ya, made me better, better suited
for ya.

[Repeat Chorus:]

[Repeat Chorus with adlibs]

I was made, made, my lips to kiss,
these eyes of mine, oh baby, baby,
baby, together, I was made, I was made
to love you, love you, my hands. Only
you me and God knows, how deep this
love goes, baby ,oh baby, baby, I was
made, my lips to kiss you, my eyes
to see you, my legs to stand for you
and only you baby. Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
oh, oh

[Repeat Chorus]

I was made to love you, all over the
world you will be girl baby, Baby, oh
oh , forever and ever. How long is
eternity? That's how long we'll be
together. Forever. My legs won't stand
without ya. No, No, No, No, No, Oh! made
to love you baby From head to toe, only
you, me and God knows. I was made, made
to ya

. . .


Huh, it's gonna be one of them days
I can feel it, uh

[Verse 1]
On a day, like today
I got out of bed, upped and went my way
Tryin' to find some peace within
But here ain't no rest for a weary man

Everything seemed to get me down
Looking everywhere just to find a smile
Then the phone rings and an angel sings
"Hello (Hello)"

[chorus]
And it's funny you should call today
It's been too long, thought you just moved on
And it's funny you should call today
You always found a way to make my day

[Verse 2]
Girl, tell me how is your family
I can't believe that you thought of me, baby
Baby, my heart is beating fast
You don't know how much I missed our past, mmm, yeah

Seen a friend of mine a month or so
She said you're doin' well, you've got it going on
Then the phone rings and an angel sings
"Hello (Hello)"

[repeat chorus]

Baby,it's like you know when I wa down and out (down and out)
Like in the past when you would bail me out(bail me out) baby baby
And I just want to wanna thank you girl
Just to hear your voice girl, it changed my world

And ain't it funny you should call today
It's been too long, thought you just moved on
And it's funny you should call today
We can just be friends, babe, ain't got to be your man
No way, no way......

. . .

It's been a hell of a week
Have work and
Boss keeps yelling at me
What a dirt and

Home is killing me too
It's the worst calls
Kids done got out of school
On my nerves and

Come down, Monday, Tuesday
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
I'm going now
Ooh, I'm going now

I'm popping cows, chopping dollars
It's the weekend
Can't stop me now
Ain't nobody stop me now

DJ, don't play no slow jam
I wanna dance, got my hands, see some mashing
DJ, don't play no slow jam
After the club I'll make love my own way

One or two would be cool
To get my grind on
But I need a good groove
I wanna lose control

Stepping and getting crunk too
Am I worthy?
Nothing a mother will do
But I wanna get dirty

Come down, Monday, Tuesday
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
I'm going now
Ooh, I'm going now

I'm popping cows, chopping dollars
It's the weekend
Can't stop me now
Ain't nobody stop me now

DJ, don't play no slow jam
I wanna dance, got my hands, see some mashing
DJ, don't play no slow jam
After the club I'll make love my own way

DJ, don't play no slow jam
I wanna dance, got my hands, see some mashing
DJ, don't play no slow jam
After the club I'll make love my own way

DJ, DJ, DJ, DJ
Oh, DJ, DJ, oh, DJ, Mr. DJ

DJ, don't play no slow jam
I wanna dance, got my hands, see some mashing
DJ, don't play no slow jam
After the club I'll make love my own way

Come down, Monday, Tuesday
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
I'm going now
Ooh, I'm going now

I'm popping cows, chopping dollars
It's the weekend
Can't stop me now
Ain't nobody stop me now

DJ, don't play no slow jam
I wanna dance

Can It Stay
