Doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo doo

Oh, my, where do, how do I begin
To answer the question I know you been wonderin'
Playin' cool, I, cool, how could it all be true
These things, who's that and what's it to you

He is the mind objector, the heart protector
The soul defender of anything I fear
The baby conceiver, the make me believer
The joy bringer, the love giver

He is the dough increaser, the pleasure releaser
The hard knocks knower without the scars to show ya
The night school teacher, the good life preacher
The caretaker, the kiss craver

He is

All these words are only frostin' on my cake
Feelings explain, don't do justice to how I feel
So alive, so in love for the first time
No way can I hide who am I

He is the mind objector, the heart protector
The soul defender of anything I fear
The baby conceiver, the make me believer
The joy bringer, the love giver

He is the dough increaser, the pleasure releaser
The hard knocks knower without the scars to show ya
The night school teacher, the good life preacher
The caretaker, the kiss craver

{He is} So {He is}, so {He is}
Everything, everything I want and I want it
{He is} So {He is}, so {He is}
And so much more than I thought it could be
{So right} So right {So right} girls, I
I gotta be the same for him {I gotta be the same for him}
For my baby
Oh...oh...yes, he is, oh, oh
I know exactly what he is

{He is, he is, he is}
My joy bringer
{He is, he is, he is}

He is the soul injector, the heart protector
The soul defender of anything I fear
The baby conceiver, the make me believer
The joy bringer, the love giver

He is the dough increaser, the pleasure releaser
The hard knocks knower without the scars to show ya
The night school teacher, the good life preacher
The caretaker, the kiss craver

The soul defender of anything I fear

And all my girls say
What!
(Laughter)
Tie me up, tie me up
Oh, oh baby
Oh yeah

Last night I had a dream
And I couldn't sleep
What was wrong with me
Thinkin' 'bout the fight we had
And it makes me mad
That I'd go off like that
Wish I could take it back
So baby I apologize, it wasn't right
Is there a comprise that we could find
Cause I be thinkin' you're insensitive
But it's your language
It's just different from mine

Chrous
Understand the nature of a man
And realize that we're just different
I understand that if I be me and you be you
We know love will pull us through
Understand the nature of a man
I understand

I'll be there for you
Baby through and through
I'll be your candied yams
You know I love you boo
I'm not tryin' to be the man
Nah, ain't got that kind of nerve
Ain't tryin' to role reverse
I know I wear the purse
To me it's not about control
That's not what I want
Its your love I want
And from you I want
All the little character flaws
It's one of nature's laws
From the beginning of time

Chrous

You're the creamy part
Of my chocolate star
That's what you are
You stole my heart
The fragrance of a melody
I can't describe what you are for me
My baby, my baby
You do that thing for me


. . .



I'm fallin for you
Boy the things that you do
Make me feel like I'm one with the world
I'm falling for you
Boy my heart will be true
Just as long as I'll be your girl

Remember lying awake
Praying for a man like you
Wishing my fantasies could somehow someday come true
I wanted someone who would appreciate the things I do
I finally found my baby

I'm fallin for you
Boy the things that you do
Make me feel like I'm one with the world
I'm falling for you
Boy my heart will be true
Just as long as I'll be your girl


Do you even know that I think about you constantly baby
Realize I'm all the woman that you'll ever need
Let me show you just how cool I think our thing can be
All I want is your good lovin'

I'm fallin for you
Boy the things that you do
Make me feel like I'm one with the world
I'm falling for you
Boy my heart will be true

. . .



First Verse
I'm home alone again
And you're out, hanging with your friends
So you say, but I know it's not quite that way
It's getting pretty late and you haven't checked on me all day
When I called you didn't answer
Now I'm feeling like you're ignoring me

I wish that you were home
holding me,tight in your arms
and I wish, I could go back
To the day before we met and skip my regret

Chorus
I wish I wasn't in love with you
so you couldn't hurt me
It just ain't fair the way you treat me
No you don't deserve me
Wasted my time thinking about you and you ain't never gone change
I wish I wasn't in love with you
so I wouldn't feel this way

Verse 2
When you touch me my heart melts
and everything you did wrong I forget
so you play me and take advantage
of the love that I feel for you
Why you wanna hurt me so bad
I believed in you thats why I"m so mad
now I'm drowning in disappointment, and its hard for me to even look at you

I wish that you were home
Holding me tight in your arms ooh baby
I wish I could go back
To the day before we met and skip my regret

Bridge
Said you care about me, but from what I see
I ain't feeling that, so I disagree
gave you all my love and understanding and you treated me like your enemy
so leave me alone, don't want nothing from you
just go back where you came from this house is no longer your home
you can not never come no more

Chorus (repeat 2x)

outro
I hear you knocking at my door again
I'm wondering should I let you in
I open up the door and see the flowers for me so beautiful in your hands
You start begging me to take you back,
I've always been a sucker for romance
and before you know it I can see, you're all over me
oh no here I go again

I wish I wasn't in love with you so you couldn't hurt me

. . .



intro

i've had my share of disappointments
i've been struck by love
i've been stuck for love
and i've blind for love
and wasted time for love


verse 1

i've always lived by my momma's words so
never been a fool for love
tell you like my momma told me
remember that you're royalty
and it takes a real man to see

chorus

love is fulltime
over time
all the time
now see if he ain't man enough to see
then you gotta roll
gotta go
gotta leave

repeat chorus

verse 2

tell me what good is candy, cards, and roses
if only he'll hurt you again
just to say that he's sorry again
in my opinion he's the sorriest man
and you can do much better than him
don't be afraid
to open up your eyes recognize and see
tell you like my momma told me (your a queen)
remeber that you're royalty
and it takes a real man to see

chorus
2x

verse 3

gotta say you can't run your game on me
brotha i'm wise enough to see
been down this same street before
cant go back no more

no i can't go back no more

chorus
5x

you ain't gotta be with that man

. . .



la la la la (8 times)

This morning when you woke up I
had breakfast cooked with everything you like
but you didn't even give the eggs a try
and you left without kissing me goodbye
used to wake up happy everyday
with the glow of love upon your face
but now that shine has gone away
has someone else taken my place

bridge:

you need to stop stop
asking me to cook and giving me the look
that you were turned on by me

stop stop coming home to me stop hanging
in the streets instead of being where you should

stop stop looking in my face when you would come in late
I said I know you way too good

stop stop fooling me around boy if you aint down
and you want to leave you know you could

chorus:

you dont love good baby like ya used to
hold me like ya used to
do the things ya used to

you dont touch me baby like ya used to
say the things ya used to
tell me are you used to me

you dont love good baby like ya used to
kiss me like ya used to
tell me what ya used to

say you dont miss me baby like ya used to
love me like ya use to
maybe your too used to me

yesterday I wore my favorite jeans
the ones you love to see on me
but you didnt even give a second look
guess someone else had your attention took
even did my hair in a brand new style
to see if a change would bring a smile
and I might as well have stayed the same
cause you still didnt say a thang

bridge:
you need to stop stop
asking me to cook and giving me the look
that you were turned on by me

stop stop coming home to me stop hanging
in the streets instead of being where you should

stop stop looking in my face when you would come in late
I said I know you way too good

stop stop fooling me around boy if you aint down
and you want to leave you know you could

chorus 2x

la la la la 8x


. . .



Don't lie to me
Even if it's gonna make me cry
Say what you mean
Even if it hurts me deep inside
We've been good friends for years
And I hold that dear
But you cannot end this night
Without giving me a chance to tell ya
How I feel inside

So you're seeing her
What's this the, third or second date?
Is it serious?
If it is your making a big mistake
Can you be truthful when
your alone with her and look into her eyes
If you tell me that you don't think of me it would come as a suprise

Chorus
Can you tell me that I'm not her
Say I'm not the one who completes your world
Who should share your name
Who should wear your ring
When I've always been your girl
Can you tell me I'm not the one
To be the mother of your unborn son
May not have the tie but there's no denyin that you feel the same
Cause I've always been your girl

Oh Listen to me
And don't you dare say it's too late
Now honestly
You know she's only a passing face
I am your meant to be
Your eternity
Shouldn't settle for anything less
She may have your body But I own your heart
To ignore this you'll regret

Chorus

Girl, Girl, Your girl!

I am your meant to be
Your eternity
Shouldn't settle for anything less
She may have your body But I own your heart
To ignore it you'll regret

(How u gunna let that gurl get between us baby?
Do u even know her name? How am I supposed to make it through to u?)

(Chorus)

Is Sunday gunna be my day to take it easy
(make it all about me)
maybe on monday think about callin
maybe tuesday we'll see how I feel
sunday gunna be ma day to take it easy
(and make it all about me)
maybe on monday think about callin
maybe tuesday we'll see how I feel

it's 9:30 in the mornin, I didn't sleep well again
tossed all night long boy
can't stand it when we fight like this
here we go again so I have to be gone
can't deal with the fallout
gunna take a time out
i need to take the day off
gunna gather my thoughts, gather myself
i need some time without you, without you

(Chorus)

Maybe i'll just take a walk
a few blocks get a bite to eat
see a movie (but not a love story)
try to get in the key, listen to some stevie
what I need to do is go to church
and pray for that gurl that got between us
pray that I don't see her
pray that I don't meet her
pray that I don't try to beat her

(Chorus)

what she says and what she does ain't no concern to me
she don't really need to be all up in ma business
baby u didnt really take the time to talk to me
you played me and betrayed me
now Im ready I need , I need sunday--> (fade into chorus)

(Chorus)

(OH OH OH OH OH OH)

. . .



I've said
I won't cry anymore
What's the use of crying for
It doesn't change
The fact that love's a fragile thing
Like...
Monday
I was your everything
But Tuesday you had news to bring
You have to go
It's just the way somebody told me...

Chorus:
Your four words from a heartbreak (just four)
Four words from a mistake (just four)
Your four words from a heartbreak

He's leaving
It's over
Hey sorry
And goodbye

Maybe
All we have is now
Promises they fade somehow
Don't tell me please
About the love we'll share tomorrow
Do you
Remember the plans we made
They're lying in the shallow grave
Next to all
The shattered dreams
Like someone told me

(Chorus)

Goodbye
Sorry
It's over
It's over
Goodbye
He's leaving
But the pain isn't over


. . .



This is for my sisters
And all my sister girls
Um
Yeah
She was 5 foot 9
If she didn't wear shoes
Body like a goddess
Walk by her own rules
Reigned supreme over her ghetto kingdom
Possessed intellectual wisdom
Any man she met wanted a piece of her
bought her fine things in hopes to creep with her
Talked like 25
Looked like 23
Who could believe the sistas only 14
(Chorus)
Hold On
If You Can
Cross Your Legs
Forget that man
Someday
you'll look back and understand
Sista Girl(sista girl)
only a child Walkin' around,
sista girl(sista girl)
Don't let him rock your world
Sista Girl(sista girl)
do do do do do
Sista Girl(sista girl)
You're Only 14

In retrospect he wasn't really her type
But he was tall with big hands and the sexiest eyes
So she fell for him and in the blink of an eye
He became part of her for the rest of her life
Four months later considering her plight
Belly's gettin' bigger she saw the plus sign
So she she calls him up hoping he'll ease her pain
(ooh) Don't remember her name
Hold On
If You Can
Cross Your Legs
Fire that man
Someday
you'll look back and understand
Sista Girl(sita girl)
Only a child
Walkin' around, sista girl
Don't let 'em rock your world
Sista Girl(sista girl)
Sista Girl(sista girl)
Only 14
Hey mm hey unh unh unh hey
Hummm Momma used to say sweet child
The world is at your door
don't give it all away
Just look
There's so much of life in store for you
Baby wait and see
Take your time
Feed your mind
Be free

(Background singers)
Hey to the mothers and the daddies
and the sistas and the baby girls
Oh lord have mercy
be my world sista girl
Back ground singers)
mmm to the mothers and the daddies
and the sitas and the baby girls
do do do do do
Hold on
Be strong
Sista girl
Hey Hey Hey Hey
You are only a baby sista
Sista sista sista sista girl
Cause you're only 14
(Background singers)
Hey to the mothers and the daddies
and the sistas and the baby girls
Listen to the sisters girl
Yee eee yea ohhh yeah
(Background singers)
Hey to the mothers and the daddies
and the sistas and the baby girls
Only 14
oo sister
yeah yeah come on

. . .



There's a time I felt I was blessed To be loved by you
But those blessings turn to regret from all the things you put me through
I remember at night you used to hold me till the sun rose the next day
Now you sleep and just turn away while my heart is on display

And I say...

(Chorus)
Why should I cry one more night?
Why should I smile when it hurts inside?
Why does my heart say, get up and walk away
Why do I stay?
Why, why, why

(Repeat)

There's a reason why I cry every day
There's a reason why things don't go your way
There's a reason why I kneel down in pray
There's a reason why I'm still around today
Can't you see that I'm hurtin' eternally?
I need affection and good Lord therapy
I need you know as an urgent delivery
TO GET RID OF THE PAIN INSIDE OF ME

(Chorus, 2x)

Why should I put up lies?
Am I afraid to say goodbye?
I've loved you so, baby I can't deny
But now it's time to dry my eyes
It's Hard to think of what was changed when I feel like it was all in vain
Can't be right and feel this wrong
This heart of mine is just...


. . .



Would I be standing here
After all these years
Among the stars above
Maybe not, if it wasn't for your love
Smiling faces all around
Like when a king that has just been crowned
A battle has been won
That I'd have lost
If it wasn't for you love
A fairy tale unfolds
More true than stories I've been told
At last my chance to shine
And all in perfect time
The life I once dreamed of
Who'd have thought
If it wasn't for your love
And oh the wonderful surprise
To have a light so bright it blinds my eyes
And finally I see, how it feels to live a dream
But would I have touched the sky
Ever flown so high
No not I, if it wasn't for your love

. . .

Sometimes
The hardest thing to do in life is try to understand the reason why we have to cry.

One day
I still believe if we can see the possibilities
the world can be a better place.

So many miracles are happening around us every day
Look to the mountaintop, not the mountain in your way.

Side by side, heart to heart
We can finish anything we start
Anything can be done
With just one dream

One friend
You know that's all it takes is just one friend to lend a hand. A helping hand, that's all it takes.

One Smile
Sometimes that's all it takes is just one smile and darkness breaks that's all it takes is just one smile

So many people miss the miracle of what it is to care. Love is what brings us all together, anyway

Side by side, heart to heart
We can finish anything we start
Anything can be done
With just one dream

Hand in hand, we can do
What it takes to make our dreams come true
For each of us, if we trust
In just one dream

We are the wings
We can fly into forever
Like a promise of the sun
We're born to shine
We have the strength
We can change the world together
Build a stairway to the stars that we can climb

Side by side, heart to heart
We can finish anything we start
Anything can be done
With just one dream

Hand in hand, You and I, we can do
What it takes to make our dreams come true

Each of us, if we trust, in just one dream

In just one dream
