Imagine seeing him on the town holding another hand
She's staring me down
So I figure that he told her who I am
But it don't matter either way
What they do or say
'cause ain't nothing changed
He's standing with her
But his soul is calling out my name

Chorus
In my mind I'll always be his lady
In my mind I'll always be his girl

Saw his mama just the other
Said he'd been through a spell
'Had a bad break up
Thinks he's on his way up
It's hard to tell
She said
“I think it'd do some good if you call him every now and then,
You see he's been through some things and I'm thinking
He could really use a friend”

Chorus
In my mind I'll always be his lady
In my mind I'll always be his girl
Only time will tell if I'm his lady
But in my mind, I'll always be his girl

Bridge
They say if you love something
You've got to let it go
And if it comes back
Then it means so much more
But if it never does
At least you will know
That it was something you had to go through
To grow

Chorus
In my mind I'll always be his lady
In my mind I'll always be his girl
Only time will tell if I'm his lady

. . .



Verse 1:
I'm laying here in my bed, staring at the ceiling
Imagining that you're here . . . holding me,
See to have your heart in my possession would mean everything,
But would you rather live loveless, or will you live for me and . . .

Chorus:
What would you give, and
What would it take, for
You to show me, that, I'm worth all the love
Every tear
Will you fight for me until you win
I need to know
Am I worth it?

Verse 2:
Now I wanna' give you my all, but I don't know if it's too soon,
See the heart doesn't understand time, it just does what it wants to
See to have your heart in my possession would mean everything
But would you rather live loveless or would you live for me and . . .

Chorus:
What would you give, and
What would it take, for
You to show me, that, I'm worth all the love
Every tear
Will you fight for me until you win
I need to know
Am I worth it?

Verse 3:
Would you climb the highest mountain?
Would you swim the deepest sea?
Would you put your life on the line?
I need to know, would you do this for me?
Am I worth the late night phone call?
When you really wanna' be asleep
Am I worth you giving it your all?
'Cause you're worth it to me

Chorus:
What would you give, and
What would it take, for
You to show me, that, I'm worth all the love
Every tear
Will you fight for me until you win
I need to know

. . .



Chorus:
Wait a minute
I've been calling out to you
There's nothing more you can say to make me stay
This time I swear I'll stand firm to my word
Wait a minute
I've cried my last cry
For the last time
See you've stayed away a day too late
I've hurt for too long, boy, now you've got to pay

I gotta' dozen things on my mind
Issues with you are the first in line
I never thought it would be true
I was labeled a fool for chasing after you
Shoulda' known what to do
Repercussions all because of you
Manipulating
Aggravating
All of these things come to mind
But . . .

Chorus:
Wait a minute
I've been calling out to you
There's nothing more you can say to make me stay
This time I swear I'll stand firm to my word
Wait a minute
I've cried my last cry
For the last time
See you've stayed away a day too late
I've hurt for too long, boy, now you've got to pay

I've wasted far too much time boy
Blaming myself when you're wrong
Can't go on
Year after year
And if you really, really loved me, like you say you do
You woulda' took up for my heart
From the start
Instead, you led me on
Tell me why

Bridge:
Now I understand why
You strayed away day after day
You just weren't the man that
Was meant to be
For me
For me

Chorus:
Wait a minute
I've been calling out to you
There's nothing more you can say to make me stay
This time I swear I'll stand firm to my word
Wait a minute
I've cried my last cry
For the last time
See you've stayed away a day too late

. . .



It's bordering on insanity
So blurred
So unclear
Then suddenly eyes focus and realize that
This man should be here
It's funny how there's no remorse in the moment
But after it's over you wish you could disown it
And as you get up to tell this stranger to leave
The love of your life walks in and sees . . . everything

Chorus:
And of all the things that you could have said
What was in your head?
I didn't mean to
All the thoughts running through your mind
All that you could find
I didn't mean to
And the pain of losing everything comes over you
I didn't mean to
All you can say is that 'you didn't mean to'
I didn't mean to

And it's reality now
Pictures of him and your baby
Smashed in broken glass all on the floor
With his suitcase in one hand, your little girl's hand in the other
You hear him say "Mommy don't live us no more"
And it cuts like a knife but you can't blame him either
You're a mother, you're a wife, but you're also a cheater
Ooh girl, one silly moment of lust
Just cost you everything that you've ever loved

Chorus:
And of all the things that you could have said
What was in your head?
I didn't mean to
All the thoughts running through your mind
All that you could find
I didn't mean to
And the pain of losing everything comes over you
I didn't mean to
All you can say is that 'you didn't mean to'
I didn't mean to

Bridge:
Oh, the clouds are rolling in
As you prepare to face this punishment and suffer the consequence
Such a price to pay
Was it really worth it?
And you fight back tears
As you watch him take the only thing you ever truly loved away
The tears in her eyes as she waves goodbye
Slowly kills you inside

Chorus:
And of all the things that you could have said
What was in your head?
I didn't mean to
All the thoughts running through your mind
All that you could find
I didn't mean to
And the pain of losing everything comes over you
I didn't mean to
All you can say is that 'you didn't mean to'

featuring Vybz Kartel

Verse 1:
I gotta' lotta' things to share with you boy
I'm checking for ya', call me baby sometime, I'll tell it to ya
I'm feelin' all this chemistry between you and me
I can't sleep at night I toss and turn and turn
Lookin' for ya' dreams of you by my side, I'm talking to ya
What's this
what's this
I feel
I feel
I'm curious, 'gotta see

Chorus:
How many ways can I show you how I feel
Let you know my love is real
I'll be the girl for you I will . . .
Give you all of me
I wanna' hear how it sounds when you say my name
Boy for that I'll do anything
And if you need or you want for more
Tell me how many ways

Verse 2:
I'm waiting for the day, you say to me, tellin' me
I'm the one you need and you'll always take care of me
And you take me by the hand and tell me 'Baby it's alright, its okay'
Then you and me can finally live out all our fantasies
Layin' on the beach - fall asleep in the West Indies
Listenin' to sounds of pleasure

Chorus:
How many ways can I show you how I feel
Let you know my love is real
I'll be the girl for you I will . . .
Give you all of me
I wanna hear how it sounds when you say my name
Boy for that I'll do anything
And if you need or you want for more
Tell me how many ways

Vybz Kartel solo

Chorus:
How many ways can I show you how I feel
Let you know my love is real
I'll be the girl for you I will . . .
Give you all of me
I wanna hear how it sounds when you say my name
Boy for that I'll do anything
And if you need or you want for more

. . .



Verse 1:
I got a song in my heart
Let me start with I'm over you
Still it can't hurt me to say very plain . . . I think about you
And the laughs and the jokes and the times that I shared with you.
I got this feeling for reminiscing
Wanted to take that trip down memory lane
But what is missing, is that you're not here to sit down with me
So I'm thinking these beautiful things all by myself.
And what's on my mind is...

Chorus:
Back when it was
Simple as breathing
Just the two of us
We were happy together it was
Easy to be in
Our relationship,
You remember when
You used to say you loved me so
Promised one time to never go away
And now you're gone

Verse 2:
The smile that you left me with, is the same smile I've kept on wearing
The smile's not so much tied to you
More tied to what we spent sharing
Simple little things
But it was all those simple little things that pleased me the most...
Need I remind you 'bout the good times baby
There were good times from the start
Good times in my heart
A heart that never lied
Remember back in '99.
When we snuck into the neighbor's pool and went for a dip
There were good times in the rain
Good times everyday
Good times Heaven knows
Remember that dirty little joke
Made us laugh all night long.

Chorus:
Back when it was
Simple as breathing
Just the two of us
We were happy together it was
Easy to be in
Our relationship,
You remember when
You used to say you loved me so
Promised one time to never go away
And now you're gone

Bridge
The joy you left me with, nothing stronger since
What we did together
I ain't felt nothing better since that time
Those were the days
The nights
The minutes
The seconds
That you were mine

Chorus
Back when it was
Simple as breathing
Just the two of us
We were happy together it was
Easy to be in
Our relationship,
You remember when
You used to say you loved me so
Promised one time to never go away

. . .



Verse 1:
You said you loved me
Said I was everything you wanted in a woman
You said you needed me
You said no place on earth is happier than our home
You said ain't nothing wrong with ya'
You said you didn't want to talk about it
You said 'baby I'm tired'
Must have been tired of me cause you left me hangin'

Chorus:
You never said goodbye to me you just left
So I think I'm hearing what's not being said
Sent me a letter with no return address
So I think I'm hearing what's not being said
If you wanted me I wouldn't have to guess
So I think I'm hearing what's not being said
If you can't find the right words to express how you feel
I think I'm hearing what's not being said

Verse 2:
You said, but now its time for show and tell
Sent me a letter saying you still care
You say you ain't in love with no one else
And now I'm living everyday blaming my self
So if you have a reason
And you ain't speaking up
Why can't you just be a man
And tell me I ain't good enough
No I wasn't dreaming
I know some days things got rough
You must have been tired of me
To just leave me hangin

Chorus
You never said goodbye to me you just left
So I think I'm hearing what's not being said
Sent me a letter with no return address
So I think I'm hearing what's not being said
If you wanted me I wouldn't have to guess
So I think I'm hearing what's not being said
If you can't find the right words to express how you feel
I think I'm hearing what's not being said

Bridge:
What you're saying to me I don't want to believe
I translated your language to find out what you mean
I don't think this is how we should communicate
How could you take your love and throw it all away
I guess that was yesterday
You're hurting me today
Cause you said goodbye...

Chorus:
So I think I'm hearing what's not being said
Sent me a letter with no return address
So I think I'm hearing what's not being said
If you wanted me I wouldn't have to guess
So I think I'm hearing what's not being said
If you can't find the right words to express how you feel

. . .



Verse 1:
I used to think that you were heaven sent
Cause you appeared to be the perfect gentleman.
You would open doors and make those daily calls
Just to check and see if I needed anything at all.
You used to be concerned
Then things changed suddenly,
And when something went wrong
You were never there to see.
When I would tell you that I need comforting
You would tell me you were kickin' it with "Ray and them."

Chorus
Losing you had to be
The best thing that ever happened to me
Even though I cried a little
And I tried a little
I learned what a good woman really needs
Losing you had to be,
The best thing that ever happened to me
Now that I'm over the pain
I found love again.
With a man that makes me so happy

Verse 2:
You would get mad at me over stupid things
Now why would I be going through the pockets of your Jeans?
I had suspicions and I felt something was goin' on
You blame me for cheatin'
But it was you doin' something wrong.
They say that guilt will break ya down,
And lately you've been calling, but it's too late now.
And I just wanna' thank you for leaving when you did
'Cause I never woulda' fell in love with him.

Chorus:
Losing you had to be
The best thing that ever happened to me.
Even though I cried a little
And I tried a little
I learned what a good woman really needs
Losing you had to be,
The best thing that ever happened to me.
Now that I'm over the pain
I found love again.
With a man that makes me so happy

Bridge:
Thank you for the silly arguments
You made me realize
And the times you tried to kill my self-confidence
Now I know the reasons why
I appreciate you leaving me when you did
Cause you made me understand
Cause I never woulda' saw the great man that I found in him

Chorus:
Losing you had to be
The best thing that ever happened to me
Even though I cried a little
And I tried a little
I learned what a good woman really needs
Losing you had to be,
The best thing that ever happened to me
Now that I'm over the pain
I found love again.

featuring Shaggy

Verse 1:
Remember how you used to see me
That day we met the butterflies
Let me know I wasn't dreaming
Pretending not to feel me
While you walking down my street
Playing hard to get
I know you thought I wouldn't work that hard
You didn't think I would let down my guard
Remember how you didn't believe me
When I told you that I thought you were my destiny

Shaggy solo

Chorus:
You're love is like rain
Come a little closer let me explain
You're love is like rain
Shower your love all over me
You're love is like rain
Lovin' so good hafi' shout your name
You're love is like rain
Who else is gonna make you feel this way

Verse 2:
I'm not tryin' to run your life
All I need is you to set me free
I know your boys think you're crazy
Cause all you wanna' do is spend your time with me
It's never too much
Drown me in your love I don't need to breathe
I'm like a flower I need you boy to come water me

Shaggy solo

Chorus:
You're love is like rain
Come a little closer let me explain
You're love is like rain
Shower your love all over me
You're love is like rain
Lovin' so good hafi' shout your name
You're love is like rain
Who else is gonna' make you feel this way

Shaggy solo

Chorus:
You're love is like rain
Come a little closer let me explain
You're love is like rain
Shower your love all over me
You're love is like rain
Lovin' so good hafi' shout your name
You're love is like rain

. . .



Verse 1:
At first I wrote it "dear you," then it turned,
"to whom it may concern."
I began it in this way because
I needed to express through these words,
How deeply I was hurt,
And how distant from you I now was.
I wrote "normally I would say
These words to your face,
But this time that I just can't do,
Cause I know the way you been movin'
And the things you been doin'
And right now I can't stand the sight of you."

Chorus:
So this is my goodbye
This means we are not together
This means that you're free,
See how you wanna' see, and me,
Well I know I can do better
So this is my goodbye
This makes it official, you've lost me forever
We are now the past, and it's kinda sad
That you had to read it in this letter
This is my goodbye

Verse 2:
By the time you finish this
I'll be gone for good, your lesson learned.
Where it is I'll be, and who's lovin' me,
Sorry baby, that's no longer your concern.
And tell your lil' friend she'll be in my prayers,
Cause just having to deal with you
Is enough to break your soul.
I just hope she knows exactly
What it is she's getting into.

Chorus:
So this is my goodbye
This means we are not together
This means that you're free,
See how you wanna' see, and me,
Well I know I can do better
So this is my goodbye
This makes it official, you've lost me forever
We are now in the past, and it's kinda' sad
That you had to read it in this letter
This is my goodbye

Bridge:
Not that it matters to you,
But I wrote this with clear and dry eyes.
The years of being mistreated by you,
I've cried all the tears I can cry.
So this is the end, done and over with.
Believe me when I say that you won't be missed.
No hug, no kiss, signed sincerely.
P.S. Forget you ever knew me.

Chorus:
This is my goodbye
This means we are not together
This means that you're free,
See how you wanna' see, and me,
Well I know I can do better
This is my goodbye
This makes it official, you've lost me forever
We are now in the past, and it's kinda sad
That you had to read it in this letter

. . .



Verse 1:
All things being equal
I always put you first
You know that I've been down for you
Through better and through worse
All things being equal
Boy I've been more than cool
So it seems only natural
To expect the same of you
Now I'm not trying to start nothing
I like things drama free
But there won't be nothing to stop
If you keep sweatin' me
Sometimes a girl just needs her space
No different than her man
If I don't care that you do you
Why can't you deal with this?

Chorus:
I need some me time
Not some you and some I
Just some me time, oh—
I need some she time
Not some him and some her
Just some free time, oh—
I wanna run with my girls
Hit the club, hit the mall
Get my nails and hair done
Spend a day at the spa
Boy you ain't gotta worry
There ain't nothin' goin' on
I need some me time
That's all, and that's all

Verse 2:
All things being equal
You're not the only one
If I wanted to roll like that
I could have anyone I want
All things being equal
I got a right to choose
The only thing you need to know
My choice is always you
Now I'm not tryin' to flip on you
Or make a mess of things
But if I put trust in you
Then you should do the same
I'm not goin' anyplace
I'm not goin' anywhere
So you gotta' be actin' all scared

Chorus:
I need some me time
Not some you and some I
Just some me time, oh—
I need some she time
Not some him and some her
Just some free time, oh—
I wanna' run with my girls
Hit the club, hit the mall
Get my nails and hair done
Spend a day at the spa
Boy you ain't gotta' worry
There ain't nothin' goin' on
I need some me time
That's all, and that's all

Bridge:
You're the most important thing in the world to me
Can't you get it through your head
I ain't never gonna leave you, I ain't about to
Baby don't you understand how much I love you
I'm not deserving of your doubt and lack of trust for me
Boy it's disturbing you wouldever think that low of me
I've told you everything and anything that's going on
That's why I want you to know

Chorus:
I need some me time
Not some you and some I
Just some me time, oh—
I need some she time
Not some him and some her
Just some free time, oh—
I wanna' run with my girls
Hit the club, hit the mall
Get my nails and hair done
Spend a day at the spa
Boy you ain't gotta worry
There ain't nothin' goin' on
I need some me time

. . .



Verse 1:
I tried so many times but nothing happened,
It seemed the task at hand was much too great for me.
I spent my yesterdays wondering if tomorrow would be the same.
I underestimated Your grace.
But you loved me in spite of my ways
And changed me.

Chorus:
Change
That's the word that comes to mind when I think of all you've done for me.
Oh, oh, change
It's kinda' strange how people say that I act so differently
Oh, oh change
Every passing day I find it easier to say:
"What a wonderful change in me."

Verse 2:
Now I find myself staring in the mirror
Taking inventory of the things I see.
I never realized that there was so much missing deep inside
Until you took control of my life.
Like an eagle now I can fly
Cause you changed me.

Chorus:
Change
That's the word that comes to mind when I think of all you've done for me.
Oh, oh, change
It's kinda' strange how people say that I act so differently
Oh, oh change
Every passing day I find it easier to say:
"What a wonderful change in me."

Bridge:
And everyday I pray that you'll open my eyes to see things your way
Cause I wanna love like you,
Walk like you,
Live like you.
Whatever you have to do
Even if you change me Lord.

Chorus:
Change
That's the word that comes to mind when I think of all you've done for me.
Oh, oh, change
It's kinda' strange how people say that I act so differently
Oh, oh change
Every passing day I find it easier to say:
