Another Sad Love Song

Since you been gone
I been hangin' around here lately
With my mind messed up
Jumped in my car tried to clear my mind
Didn't help me
I guess I'm all messed up now baby
Soon as I jumped into my ride
Those memories start to play
A song comes on the radio
And there U are baby once again
It's just another sad love song
Rackin' my brain like crazy
Guess I'm all torn up
Be it fast or slow
It doesn't let go
Or shake me
And it's all because of you
Since you been gone
I keep thinkin' about you baby
Gets me all choked up
This heart of mine keeps
Dreamin' of you and it's crazy
You'd think I'd had enough
As soon as I get you out my head
I'm in your car again
Just one request from the radio
I'm back in love sugar once again
It's just another sad love song
Rackin' my brain like crazy
Guess I'm all torn up
Be it fast or slow
It doesn't let go
Or shake me
And it's all because of you
Here comes the strings
Then somebody sings
Only takes a beat
And then it starts killin' me darlin'
Only takes one note, I tell ya,
From that radio
It's just
Another
Lonely
Love Song

Best Friend

Oh, I remember on the 4th of July
That's when I learned it was true
The stories of taboo
How could you do it if your love was true
And still want to be in my life
And make no sacrifice
Now you come and tell me
That you're really sorry
And ask to be in my life again
Oh no there's no way to begin
Or start love over
Oh no lovemaking will there be here tonight
Oh don't you sigh
Or come cryin' on my shoulder
Should've thought about the consequences then
You and my best friend
Oh I recall the pain it hurt so bad
I didn't have the strength to live
But I was just too young to die
See I have had my heart broken before
But never like this
I admit it baby left me feeling scorned
Now the love inside my heart is fading
The trust of my man and my best friend betrayed
Oh no there's no way to begin
Or start love over
Oh no lovemaking will there be here tonight
Oh don't you sigh
Or come cryin' on my shoulder
Should've thought about the consequences then
You and my best friend
How could you do that to me
And tell me that our love would always be
Always be
Oh no there's no way to begin
Or start love over
Oh no lovemaking will there be here tonight
Oh don't you sigh
Or come cryin' on my shoulder
Should've thought about the consequences then
You and my best friend

Breathe Again

If I never feel you in my arms again
If I never feel your tender kiss again
If I never hear I love you now and then
Will I never make love to you once again
Please understand if love ends
Then I promise you, I promise you
That, that I shall never breathe again
Breathe again
Breathe again
That I shall never breathe again
Breathe again
And I can't stop thinkin' about
About the way things used to be
And I can't stop thinkin' about
About the love that you make to me
And I can't get you outta my head
How in the world will I begin
To let you walk right out my life
And blow my heart away
And I can't stop carin' about
About the apple of my eye
And I can't stop doin' without
Without the center of my life
And I can't get you outta my head
And I know I can't pretend
That I won't die if you decide
You won't see me again
If I never feel you in my arms again
If I never feel your tender kiss again
If I never hear I love you now and then
Will I never make love to you once again
Please understand if love ends
Then I promise you, I promise you
That, that I shall never breathe again
Breathe again
Breathe again
That I shall never breathe again
Breathe again
And I can't stop thinkin' about
About the way my life would be
No I can't stop thinkin' about
How could your love be leavin' me
And I can't get you outta my mind
God knows how hard I tried
And if you walk right out my life
God knows I'd surely die
And I can't stop doin' without
Without the rythm of my heart
No I can't stop doin' without
For I would surely fall apart
And I can't get you outta my mind
Cause I know I can't deny it
And I would die if you decide
You won't see me again
If I never feel you in my arms again
If I never feel your tender kiss again
If I never hear I love you now and then
Will I never make love to you once again
Please understand if love ends
Then I promise you, I promise you
That, that I shall never breathe again
Breathe again
Breathe again
That I shall never breathe again
Breathe again

Candlelight

Lonely in bed
At night
And it never feels right
I toss and turn
Each night
Till the morning light
But just the thought of you
Sends chills up and down my spine
Just knowing you'll be here real soon
Makes everything alright
Candlelight
It makes it special
Me and you
On a rare occasion
Candlelight a special night
Seeing you is a sweet sensation
Candlelight
Memories of you
Your arm baby,
Squeezing me close to your heart
Shadows in the dark
Baby
Of you kissing ever part
And knowing we can share it all
And still be
Still be free
For each and every magic moment
Will last for eternity
Candlelight
It makes it special
Me and you
On a rare occasion
Candlelight a special night
Seeing you is a sweet sensation
Candlelight
And my love for you
Will never fade away
I'll save a special spot
For you baby always
Don't you know my heart
Has made for you
A special place
Don't you know
Call on me
When you want me
When you want me
I'm here for you
Candlelight
It makes it special
Me and you
On a rare occasion
Candlelight a special night
Seeing you is a sweet sensation
Candlelight

How Many Ways

Must have been heaven sent to me
Cause I never knew love like this
You know you make me feel
So good inside and boy,
It's a feeling I just can't hide
And baby words can't express my gratitude
For each and every little thing you do
I want to understand
You're all the man
That I love and I know
That I need and I want and more
Baby let me count the ways
How many ways, I love you
Let me count the ways
How many ways, I love you
Let me cont the ways
You know you're so very special to me my baby
I'll never let you go
When I'm with you
I feel so free I could count
From 1 up to 99 and still believe
Although sometimes now baby
We disagree
There ain't never or will
ever be another love for me
And I want you to know I appreciate
All the things that you do when you do
What you do for me
Darling let me count the ways
How many ways, I love you
Let me count the ways
How many ways, I love you
Let me cont the ways
1, 2 I love you
3, 4 So much more
5, 6 I can't get enough of this
7 let me show you my love
And take you to heaven
8, 9, 10 let me start love
Over and over. . .again

I Belong to You

I wouldn't change
A single thing about you baby
You shower my world with your love
You got a way baby
About cha baby
That lets me know that
There's no other man
You take care of home
I was lost until I found you
Refuse to live without you
As long as you are good to me
I belong to you
You belong to me
I belong to you
The love we share comes naturally
I used to think
I knew love before I met you
You love my defenses down baby
I let you in
To my heart
And you unlocked true
love in me
I belong to you
You belong to me
I belong to you
The love we share comes naturally
So hard to find true love baby
Son't wanna live without you
I know this love is forever
Cause it shows in every little thing you do
Always make a way to see love through
I belong to you
You belong to me
I belong to you
The love we share comes naturally

Love Affair

I feel before we go any further
I think that I should let you know
I've got a boyfriend
And I would hate to do
Anything to hurt him
So my loyalty I'll show
Don't wanna cheat on him
Never been the kind of girl
Who'd be unfair in relationships
I don't wanna lead you on
No I
Don't want a love affair
I ain't never been the kind to cheat
Cause that ain't me
Don't want a love affair
See I ain't down with o.p.p.
No I
Don't want a love affair
It doesn't matter if we're being discreet
Cause that's not me
Don't wanna play around I ain't down with o.p.p.
Now you're startin' to
Look real good to me
But I think it's best you go
Before we go too far
Gotta try to resist temptation
That way nobody gets hurt
I got a boyfriend
Even if I was your girl
I still wouldn't give myself to another
Why can't you just understand
That's just the way I am
Don't want a love affair It doesn't matter if we're
being discreet
Cause that ain't me
Don't want a love affair
As long as my man's lovin' me
Don't want a love affair
It doesn't matter if we're being discreet
That's not me
Don't wanna play around
I will never kiss and tell
Can't believe that you would say you still
Would have respect in the morning
When i just couldn't respect myself

Love Shoulda Brought You Home

Should I even listen
Should I even try
Will I just be hearing the same old lines
Baby
See it doesn't matter
What you say this time
Cause our whole relationship
Is built on one lie
You say things aren't the way they seem
But still you can't come straight with me
How can you think that you're in love
When you don't know the meaning of
Love Shoulda brought you,
Brought you,
Home last night
You shoulda been with me
Shoulda been right by my side
Baby
If you cared anything for me
Then love woulda brought you
To me last night
Gotta hand it to ya
Ya had me there for a while
I was so in love with you
I couldn't see past your smile
Now I smell the coffee
Boy, I got a wake up call
And it left the message
That you just don't care at all
You can't expect me to
Believe that she doesn't mean anything
You say that you love only me
Your kinda lovin' my darling
I just don't need
Love Shoulda brought you,
Brought you,
Home last night
You shoulda been with me
Shoulda been right by my side
Baby
If you cared anything for me
Then love woulda brought you
To me last night
Then you woulda been sincere
And I wouldn't be in tears
And love woulda brought you
To me last night
Oh baby why
Why do men think that love's just for the moment
Not over time
Please tell me why
Why should I think that
You're gonna be sincere
Are you deservin'
Don't blame me if
I just don't believe,
I just don't believe
That you'll allways be here
Love Shoulda brought you,
Brought you,
Home last night
You shoulda been with me
Shoulda been right by my side
Baby
If you cared anything for me
Then love woulda brought you
To me last night

Seven Whole Days

Seven whole days
And not a word from you
Seven whole nights
I'm just about thru
I can't take it, won't take it
Can't take it no more
I had about enough of you
I'd rather be on my own
Yes on my own
Darlin'
Darlin'
You know if you cared anything about love
You woulda been front and center
Lovin' me and touchin' me
Honey
Honey
You know if you knew anything about me
You woulda been much more tender
Ooh squeezin' me, caressin' me
You coulda had about anything you wanted
But you messed it up
You had to be tough
You told your friends
You had me wrapped around your finger
You were talking kinda cocky
Like you had it goin' on
All the while you knew
That things were kinda shaky
You knew that you were wrong
Dead wrong to be
Mistreating me
How can we go on
Seven whole days
And not a word from you
Seven whole nights
I'm just about thru
I can't take it, won't take it
Can't take it no more
I had about enough of you
I'd rather be on my own
Yes on my own
Sugar
Sugar
You know if you knew anything about sweet
You woulda been talkin' to me
Everyday
Seven days a week
Baby
Baby
You shoulda been givin' me
A little more time
But you were just much too busy
Abusin' me and usin' me
I woulda done about anything
Ya wanted
I was there for you
I was crazy about you
When I was sittin' thinkin'
I was kinda special
You were runnin' round
Hittin' every other girl in town
How could you love me
When you knew you played me funny
You knew that you were wrong
Dead wrong to be
Mistreating me
How can we go on
Seven whole days
And not a word from you
Seven whole nights
I'm just about thru
I can't take it, won't take it
Can't take it no more
I had about enough of you
I'd rather be on my own
Yes on my own
Deep in my heart
You were number one to start
But then you changed
You threw my heart away
Told your friends that
You were runnin' thangs
Why'd it have to be that way
You're wrong
Dead wrong
Tell me how
How can we go wrong
Seven whole days
And not a word from you
Seven whole nights
I'm just about thru
I can't take it, won't take it
Can't take it no more
I had about enough of you
I'd rather be on my own
Yes on my own

Spending My Time With You

I used to date and never fall in love
Just lookin' for an experience
Spending my time wasting it foolishly
Exploring my possibilities
But then one day I ran into you
You gave me feelings I never knew
I'd like to spend my weekends with you
And weekdays too
Wouldn't that be cool
I think I'm fallin' in love with you
So I'll be spendin' my time with you
There's nothin' I'd rather do
I never had a lover like you
That makes me feel like the way that you do
You said you wanted to be serious
So speak to me cause I'm curious
To know exactly how you feel inside
And feel your sweet body touchin' mine
Cause there's so many things we can do
You give me feelings I never knew
I'd like to spend my weekends with you
And weekdays too
Wouldn't that be cool
I'm fallin', fallin', falling in love with you
So I'll be spendin' my time with you
There's nothin' I'd rather do
I never had a lover like you
That makes me feel like the way that you do
You gave me love
And baby, there's nothing better
Than the love you've given to me
Let me show you how much
I really care for you
Day and night
I'll treat you right
That's all I want to do
So I'll be spendin' my time with you
There's nothin' I'd rather do
I never had a lover like you
That makes me feel like the way that you do

You Mean the World To Me

If you could give me one good reason
Why I should believe you
Believe in all the things that you tell
I would sure like to believe you
My heart wants to receive you
Just make me know that you are sincere
You know I'd love for you to lead me
And follow thru completely
So won't you give me all I ask for
And if you give your very best
To bring me happiness
I'll show you just how much I adore you
Cause you mean the world to me
You are my everything
I swear the only thing that matters
Matters to me
Oh baby, baby, baby, baby,
Baby, cause you mean so much
To me
Now it's gonna take some workin'
But I believe you're worth it
Long as your intentions are good
So good
There is just one way to show it
And boy I hope you know it
That no one could love you like I could
Lord knows I want to trust you
And always how I'd love you
I'm not sure if love is enough
And I will not be forsaken
And I hope there's no mistakin'
So tell me that you'll always be true
Cause you mean the world to me
You are my everything
I swear the only thing that matters
Matters to me
Oh baby, baby, baby, baby,
Baby, cause you mean so much
To me
There's a feeling in my heart
That I know I can't escape
So please don't let me fall
Don't let it be too late
There's a time when words are good
And they just get in the way
So show me how you feel
Baby I'm for real
Oh, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby
Cause you mean the world to me
You are my everything
I swear the only thing that matters
Matters to me
Oh baby, baby, baby, baby,
Baby, cause you mean so much
To me
