Track Name: the ONE
I know I had to let you go
But I often ask myself,
'If I was someone else...
could you be the.ONE?'

How do I give this a try?
In the midst of my self-doubt
I gotta figure this thing out
'Cuz I think you are the.ONE

I feel so ashamed
I've only myself to blame
Don't know what to do or say
To make you wanna stay
And I am so afraid

How do I give this a try?
I have to figure this thing out
In the midst of my self-doubt
'Cuz I think you are the.ONE

I know how to be alone
But you bring me outta my comfort zone
Really didn't wanna go thru this again
I was doin' alright, but then...
[then came you]
I know how to be alone
And right now I'm outta my comfort zone
And you know I didn't wanna go thru this again
I was doin' alright, but then...
Then came you...

How do I give you a try?
I have to figure this thing out
Baby, there's no doubt
I know you are
Yes, I know you are
I know you are the.ONE
Yes, I know you are the.ONE
I know you are the.ONE
I know you are the.ONE
Yes, I know you are the.ONE
Track Name: Sistah
Sistah, hold onto yourself
You're beautiful and like no one else
Don't be afraid to over-take the world
Sistahgirl, it's all up to you
[Did you know it's all up to you?]

[CHORUS]
Don't stop...
Can't nothin' stand in your way
Don't give up girl
Don't ever believe in the lies of a guy
Or the cover of a magazine
Come together now
Be 'strong and beautiful'...
'Inteligent lady' you are, my sistah...

Sistah, I know it's hard
[I know it's hard for ya]
To be 'daughter'... then 'mother & father'
To your child
Pure inspiration is flowing from inside you
Every minute of every day
And don't you forget it, baby!
[And don't you forget it]

[CHORUS]

[BRIDGE]
Did you know that
There was such power in you???
Even if no one has ever made it clear
[No one ever told you?]
You're amazing and wonderful and special
There's no limit to your grace
Let your light shine
Don't let anyone dim you out;
...diminish you; mistreat you...
Don't ever let anything defeat you

[CHORUS]

My sistah don't stop... don't stop
My sistah don't stop... my sistah!
Come together now
Be 'strong and beautiful'...
'Inteligent lady' you are, my sistah...

Ladies, put your hands up
This song's for you
Put your hands in the air
If you do whatcha gotta do!
Ladies, come together now
Be 'strong and beautiful'...
'Inteligent lady' you are, my sistah...

Oh ahh, oh ahh, oh ahh, oh ahh...
Oh ahh, oh ahh, oh ahh...
Oh ahh, oh ahh, oh ahh, oh ahh...
Just keep goin'... keep movin'
And groovin'... you can do it...!

[CHORUS]
Track Name: Bring It Back
It's been a long time after the fact
I'm sweatin' like a fool 'cuz
I really want you back
But you ask me if I'm cool
Or am I just crazy?
Is this a 'definite' or is it just 'maybe'..?

All the things I wish I could have
Said to you back then... I say now
And I want you to take me serious
I was just not willing to be a grown-up
And make the choice to settle down...
And I wanna get a place for the both of us

[CHORUS]
Bring back your love... bring it back
Bring back your love
Bring back your love...
Won't you bring it back to me?
Bring back your love...

It's hard to find someone
Who makes you laugh;
Someone who makes you wanna dance;
Someone who makes you wanna do 'romance'
Yeah, and it's hard to find someone
Who fits like a glove;
Someone who lifts you above
All the things that bring you down

And I know it took awhile
For me to figure out
What it's all about
And I know you didn't have to be standing by
I know you didn't have to wait on me
And I apologize for the frustration and your patience
Sometimes I ask myself why you'd come back again...
But I need you..!

[CHORUS]
Bring back your love... bring it back
Bring back your love
Bring back your love...
Won't you bring it back to me?
Bring back your love...
Just bring it back to me

Give me your good love
Bring it back to me

Baby, bring it back to me
Your love and your company
Let me help fulfill your dreams
So proud to have you with me
I'll do whatever that I need
To make you ultra-happy
Whatever you... [Just bring it back]
...you want [Bring it back]
Just tell me [Bring it back]

[CHORUS]
Track Name: Cameo Life
This is a story that I've never told
In a land far, far away
Lazing around like moss on a stone
In your world every day is the same
Waiting for the light to go underground
And I'm waiting on the moon to slow down

Maybe tonight we'll hang around
And get to know each other awhile
But knowing the way of my cameo life
We won't get to talkin' tonight

Walking your streets and breathing your air
Wondering how I ended up there
Realizing I have no place in your life
But when the night falls I lose all of my pride
Waiting for the light to go underground
[Can't wait to see you]
Waiting for the moon...
[Don't wanna leave you]
...to slow down

Maybe tonight we'll hang around
And get to know each other awhile
[Just a little while]
But knowing the ways of my cameo life
We won't get to talkin' tonight

Does it get easier? Tell me what I'll do
In the days and the hours
Of practice being with you
Will I ever learn to be as cold
As masterfully as you can be...
...taking the last of your love?
And leave you empty...
And leave you lonely...
And leave you without me...

Maybe it's you with someone on the side
Do you see him when you look into my eyes
Sometimes I feel you're the best I can do
And I deserve what I get from you
Waiting for light... to go underground
[I gotta see you]
And I'm waiting on the moon...
[And I hate to leave you]
...to slow down

Maybe tonight we'll hang around
And get to know each other this time
[Just a little while]
But knowing the ways of my cameo life
We won't get to talkin' tonight

Maybe tonight we'll hang around
And get to know each other for awhile
[Maybe we will]
But knowing the ways of my cameo life
We won't get to talkin' tonight
Track Name: Believe In Me
Who am I if I just
Let time pass by?
And what I know...
There's no promise of tomorrow

Just believe in me
There's one promise I can keep
I'll fight to be with you
And I'll do everything I must do

Dry your eyes
And don't believe all the lies
Uncertainty is there
And I know you must be scared

Believe in me
There's one promise I can keep
I'll fight to be with you
And I'll do all the things I must do

Believe... have faith in me...

I'll spend my last dime
And I'll work day and night
To do everything I can [everything I am]
To show you the man I am
You'll know the tears that I've cried
And you'll know how desperately I tried
You'll know...

Believe in me
There is one promise I can keep
And I'll fight to be with you
And I'll do what I must do

Yes I will
Yes I will
Yes I will
Yes I will
Yes I will
Track Name: Come On Over
Just after daylight
So glad that you called tonight
Baby, I know you've had a really long week
Won't you come over? Let me rub your feet
I just love when you hang with me
Watch a little TV... listen to a CD...

Are you lookin for something good tonight?
Are you lookin for something good tonight?
And you just can't find anything you like...
Come on over to my life

Can I make a suggestion?
Let me show you some affection
Why don't you meet me at the take-out place
Follow me home in the Escalade
A little red wine... it's a date...
Do you hear what I'm sayin'?
I want you to come over

Don't matter what time
I really don't care
Come on over
I'll be here
In the middle of the night
Under the night sky
Feel that ocean breeze
Makin' love on the balcony
Track Name: Nothing 2 See
Was that you at my door?
The man you seek don't live here no more
I'm not the same man you left with 20 bucks and some change
You're looking well... I fight the urge to say, 'Please go to hell..!'
So when did he leave? and why do you keep running back to me?

Now that I'm back on my feet... I don't blame you 'cuz I've been so weak
I've got someone who's mine and everything you told me I'd never find

Move along... nothing 2 see here
Move along... nothing 2 see

Pendulum chandeliers... animals and ringleaders...
Earthquakes... my bed shakes at night
Fireworks... I am loved beyond the earth, the moon,
and the stars in the sky
I'm satisfied... very nice try but you're wasting your time
Thanks for apologies... I wish you well... now you must leave...

Move along... nothing 2 see here
Move along... nothing 2 see
Move along... nothing 2 see here
Move along... nothing 2 see

Six months ago I may have let you in
To eventually destroy my life again
Like the Ferris wheel you take me high
But what goes around soon comes crashing down
Forget me... ignore me... no, I'm not made of money
It was you who used to say to me I had nothing
How can you be wrong? MOVE ON!
Track Name: I'll Wait
Imagine running into you...
My favorite restaurant... sittin’ in my favorite booth
I'm fine... how do you do?
Whoa... I'm sorry, I didn't mean to be rude
Why don't you introduce me to your date?
Sorry, brotha... didn't catch your name...
Nice to meet ya, do you mind if I interrupt for a minute?
Be right over here in case you wonder where we went

You got me sittin’ out in the cold dark alleyway
You got me standin’ out in the cold wet rain
You got me wishin’ I never laid eyes on you again
But it's too late... I'll wait... I'll wait

Baby, I don't wanna waste your time
Just wanna pull you aside
Is he the best that you could do? [oh, hell no..!]
Don't you get used to him, 'cuz I'm waitin' on you

You got me sittin’ out in the cold dark alleyway
You got me standing out in the cold wet rain
You got me wishin’ I never laid eyes on you again
But it's too late... I'll wait... I'll wait

I didn't know how serious you were gettin’ this time
The nerve you got... it really blows my mind
I don't believe in two short weeks you find someone new
And since I don't believe then I won't cause a scene
'Cuz I know I'll be hearing from you
Just tell me what you want from me
You got the ring!.. what else can I sing?
My pride is gone... the nights are long
Without you I ain't got nothin'
My heart is wide... my mind is gone
My house is not a home no more
14 days and I'm still alone
You're goin’ out on dates... but I'll wait...

I'll wait on you... I'll wait on you...

No matter however long... I’ll wait
No matter 'right or wrong'... I’ll wait
No matter what anybody says... I’ll wait
Nobody can take your place... I’ll wait
Track Name: So Good To Me
I love the way you make me feel
I don't ever want it to change

It feels so good to me
It feels so good to me
It feels so good to me
It feels so good to me

Can you hear my heartbeat?
Clearly, only you can do this to me

It feels so good to me
The way you do me
The way you love me

Darling, you are so good to me

Just to hold you in my arms
Makes me feel so safe and warm

The way you make love to me
And when you kiss me
When you believe in me
When you encourage me
When you say it like that!
When you say that you wanna have my baby
It feels so good to me...
Track Name: Walk Away
I wake up with you every morning on my mind
[Every day I wake up with you on my mind]
Glued to the bathroom mirror and I can't get out
[I can't even get to work on time]
I look so good right now and it's you-who got me feelin' this way
[You got me feelin' myself today]
I really never paid attention from day to day

You know you got me feelin' great
It's gotta be the love we made
Yes, you got me runnin' late
I'm lookin' at myself in the mirror...

I used to brush my teeth, yeah... I just walk away
[Walk away, Walk away]
Brush my hair, yeah... I just walk away
[Walk away, Walk away]
Button my shirt, yeah... [Walk away]
You know you're makin' me feel so handsome today
You got me lookin' in the mirror
[I can't walk away]

Just check the bounce in my step as I walk across the floor
Watch me light up a room when I walk inside the door
[I'm usually hiding in the back...]
And my 6-pack is gone... and I really need to buy a new car
[Ain't livin' like a superstar]
But I'm in heaven when you say, 'Baby, I love you the way you are!'

You know you got me feelin' great
Must be the love we made
You got me runnin' late
Givin' myself a 'double-take' now...
['Cuz I'm doin' 'double-takes' now]

[CHORUS]

[BRIDGE]
I love that you really think that I'm 'tha-bomb'
I can be who I am and, no matter what, your love is strong
When the day gets long I can call you up
And I'm all fixed up so much better than I was
I love you think that I'm 'tha-bomb'
I can be who I am and, no matter what, your love is strong
And when the day gets long, baby, I can call you up
[And sometimes I gotta git a little bit o' you...]
And I'm all fixed up...I'm so 'in love'
Track Name: Run
I have come to my senses
I'm ready to move ahead
And if you wanna go with me
You'd better pack your bags quickly
And I'm not waiting anymore
I woke up this morning... feet hit the floor
And all I could see was a open door
To my destiny

You got to run, run, run!
You got to run, run, run!
You got to run, run!
If you wanna catch me now...

I could sure use the company
But, will you be here by the time I leave
You know I love you with all my heart
But I'm heading for a new start
I realize I've got all I need
No longer afraid of anything
Today I've hit the ground running
Do you think that you can keep up with me?

[CHORUS x3]

You gotta run...
Run, run, run, run, run, run, run...
You'd better run...
Run, run, run, run, run, run, run...
You'd better run...
Run, run, run, run, run, run, run...
You gotta run...

[BRIDGE]

I gotta go... do you wanna go?
Don't you wanna go with me?
'Cuz if you're not ready
I'ma rock steady so you better get outta my way!
It's my life and I've gotta right to move on
No, you won't catch me!
Look for me and I'll be gone
You better run!

If you wanna be with me
If you wanna be in my life
If you'd like to hold me..
If you're gonna know me...
If you wanna show me you can hang...
Track Name: Beat Goe Zon
Good morning, sleepyhead
Time for you to get up outta' bed
Gotta' rise and shine!
Unwind from the loss of your time
The beat goes on...

Beat goe zon... life goes on
Beat goe zon... life goes on
Beat goe zon... life goes on
The beat goes, 'boom, boom, boom!'

It's so hard to get back on my feet
And I really don't know what I need
Wishin' my baby came back to me
Hurt me so bad dropped me to my knees
Time goes by and I don't even care
Gotta' get myself together..

So what am I gonna do?
Hold my breath 'til I turn blue?
I still got air to breathe
Standing on my two feet
I gotta keep movin'
Dancin' to the beat of the drum

Start doin' my thang (right now)
Stop worrying (right now)
Stop procrastinating (right now)
Start celebrating
The beat goes, 'boom, boom, boom!'
The beat goes on...
Track Name: OutTheBox
You don't know who I am if I don't make it known
[...and let's assume that you believe me]
And if I want you to know me I think I better tell you so
[I gotta show you what I'm all about]
Or if I wanna grow in my business
Don't wanna be someone's side-kick forever
And I know how to do it
[I need to use what I got...]
Whatever's in me... I need to use it

Time is tickin'... meter's runnin'...
Sands in the hourglass just keep on comin'
World is turnin'... dynamite stick is burnin'...
Whatcha waitin' on?... I think I'm ready for my solo

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah... comin' out the box
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah... out the box
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah... I'm comin' out the box
[I'm comin' outta, gettin' outta, thinkin' outta]
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

And I believe that's all it takes to get anywhere
[Gotta believe in myself]
I spent years defining myself based on how much I make [in] a year
I shoulda, I woulda, I coulda... if I only knew how to
get out of my own way
But if you know what I know right now... it's never to late

Time's a tickin'... meter's runnin'...
Sands in the hourglass just keep on comin'
[You know I'm ready for my solo now]
World is turnin'... dynamite stick is burnin'...
[You know I'm ready for my close-up now]
What's the hold-up?... It's time for my close-up

I have so much in me that I can share with the world [with everybody]
[Yeah, you know I have so much to give inside... I got so much to give]
But I locked it up and threw away the key
I've got too much love for one heart... I got too much heart for one soul
[I've got] too much soul for one man... Do you hear what I'm sayin'?
Track Name: Slow...
I don't wanna miss one minute...
Not one second... not an instant
And you know I've been waiting
For what appears is right here
Feels like seven years
And I want to feel your every kiss
Your full intent... the amazement of you
And I can give emotionally and
Physically what you need

Slow... with time
You take yours... and I'll take mine
Slow... sweet liberty
With your love right thru me
Slow... but waste no time
I'll take yours... you take mine


Carry me on your wings
And I trust in you... make me sing high c's
and d - e - f - g's
Write the book on pleasing me
I will illustrate... and I will sign my name
On every single page to indicate
This worked for me
And you should try this for yourself at home
With the one you love... just take it slow

Is this a dream... could you be here embracing me?
I close my eyes... and I feel your touch
And your sweet mythology
You are so real... as I imagined you would be
And I'm not alone... I think of you
At my door... and off the phone... in my home
Track Name: WAYOUT
What will they ever do about me?
I may cause the world to go up in flames
I'm dangerous! [Did you know I'm dangerous?]
At least that's what they're sayin'
A man with a 'voice' talkin' about anything...
[Now you can sit down and shut up;
you can go to the back now!]

I've been asleep with the world at my feet
For way too long
Letting others speak for me;
...handing over the microphone
And let them sing my song...

Why do I feel I'm sneakin' around
Goin' outta my way... goin' WAYOUT
to be invisible?
WAYOUT... goin' outta the way...
All my life I'm hidin' out
Goin' outta my way... goin' WAYOUT
to be insignificant!
Crazy WAYOUT

Non-threatening and quietly
Surpress myself as if I've done somethin' hellacious!
Oh, I like to eat... and the color green
And somehow that makes me
Scandalously the same as ALL...!
I should be walkin' tall, but...
Sometimes I've heard people say
I'm never going to amount to anything
What if I believe... what if I believe...
What if I believe them... and I
Don't believe in my-- don't believe in my--
Don't believe in myself?

Why do I feel I'm sneakin' around
Goin' outta my way... goin' WAYOUT
to be invisible?
You know I'm goin' WAYOUT
...outta the way
All my life I'm hidin' out
Goin' outta my way... goin' WAYOUT
to be insignificant! (x2)

You know, I'm never gonna be that way again!

I can be anything I want to be in this country
And I don't know why... (I) let my life
Pass me by... sittin' on the sideline
Oh, I can be anything I want to be in this country
And I don't know why... I let my life
Just pass me by... sittin' on the sideline

Why do I feel I'm sneakin' around
Goin' outta my way... goin' WAYOUT
to be invisible?
I'm goin' WAYOUT
...outta my way [...outta the way]
All my life I'm hidin' out [yeah]
Goin' outta my way... goin' WAYOUT
to be insignificant!

You know, it's never gonna be that way again!
You know, it's never gonna be that way again!
You will never never see me that way again...!
