And I'm feelin' a little more ready for the world
And less loss
As I once was

So come on

Girlfriend
Girlfriend

Baby, silly for me to feel this way about you and her
Cuz I know she's been such a good friend
I know she has helped you through

Talkin late on the phone
Every night you've been callin
Private moments alone
And your heart soon be fallin
And I know she's a friend
But I can't shake the feeling
That I could be losing your heart

I think I'm jealous of your girlfriend
Although she's just a girl that is your friend
I think I'm jealous of your girlfriend
She shares a special part of you

You said that she's one well to see
How deep you're in love with me
And intentions were not to get inbetween
But I see possibilities

And you say that you feel
I'm the best thing in your life
And I know it's real
I see it in your eyes
There's no reason for me, to even feel this way
I know you just enjoy her company

I think I'm jealous of your girlfriend
Although she's just a girl that is your friend
I think I'm jealous of your girlfriend
She shares a special part of you

J.d: say you jealous coz you can't tell me why (x3)

That's enough to make a lady go crazy

How Come You Don't Call Me
But all I wanna know baby is
If what we had was good...

I keep your
picture beside my bed (mmm)
And I still remember everything you said (mmm)

I always thought our love was so right I guess I was wrong
Always
thought you'd be by my side papa now you're gone
(And I'm not tryin' hear
that sh*t)

What I wanna know baby
If what we had was good
How
come you don't call me anymore

Still light the fire on the rainy night

Still like it better when your holding me tight
Everybody say

Everybody say that we should never part (mmm)
Tell me baby baby baby why

Why you wanna go and break my heart


All I wanna know baby
If
what we had was good
How come you don't call me anymore

Sometimes it
feels like I'm gonna die
If you don't call me Papa
Oh you gotta try


I'll get down on my knees
Hoping you please please please
Oooh
won't you call me sometime Papa

Why on earth
Can't you just pick up
the phone
You know I don't like to be alone

How come you don't call
me
(why must you torture me)
How come you don't call meback to top
Fallin'
I keep on fallin'

Loved someone
Way that i
Love you

Troubles

Dear lord, can you take it away?
(ooooh)
This pain in my heart just follows me by day
(yeah yeah yeah yeah)
And at night it stalks me like the shadows in my room
(mmhmm mmhmm)
Oh my goodness

Verse 1:
Feels like the world is closing on me
Feels like my dreams will never come to me
I keep on slippindeeper into myself
And I'm scared, so scared

Chorus:
If you're troubled
You just gotta let it go
If you're worried baby
You just gotta let it go
All your hustles ain't for nothing
You just gotta take it slow
When you need me baby
All you do is let me know

Verse 2:
Why does it feel
That my mind is constantly trying to pull me down
I can't seem to get away
Continuous mistakes I know I've made before
How long will I feel so out of place

A Woman's Worth
You could buy me diamonds , you could buy me pearls
Take me on a cruise around the world
Baby you know I'm worth it
Dinner lit by candles, run my bubble bath
Make love tenderly to last and last
Baby you know I'm worth it
Wanna please wanna keep wanna treat your woman right
Not just told but to show she is worth your time
You will lose if you choose to refuse to put her first
She will if she can't find a man who knows her worth, mhmn

Cuz a real man knows a real woman when he sees her
And a real woman knows a real man ain't afraid to please her
And a real woman knows a real man always comes first
And a real man just can't deny a woman's worth

If you treat me fairly I'll give you all my goods
Treat you like a real woman should
Baby I know your worth it
If you never play me , promise not to bluff
I'll hold it down when it get's ruff
Baby I know your worth it
She rolls the mile makes you smile all the while being true
Don't take for granted the passion that she has for you
You will lose if you choose to refuse to put her first
She will if she can't find a man who knows her worth. oh

Cuz a real man knows a real woman when he sees her
And a real woman knows a real man ain't afraid to please her
And a real woman knows a real man always comes first
And a real man just can't deny a woman's worth

No need to read between the lines, spell it out for you
Just hear this song cuz you can't go wrong when you value
A woman,woman,woman, a woman's worth

Cuz a real man knows a real woman when he sees her
And a real woman knows a real man ain't fraid to please her
And a real woman knows a real man always comes first
And a real man just can't deny a woman's worth

Cuz a real man knows a real woman when he sees her
And a real woman knows a real man ain't fraid to please her
And a real woman knows a real man always comes first

Goodbye
Mhmn bye bye

How do you love someone
That hurts you oh so bad
With intentions good
Was all he ever had

But how do I let go when i've
Loved him for so long and i've
Given him all that I could
Maybe love is a hopeless crime
Giving up what seems your lifetime
What went wrong with something once so good

How do you find the words to say
To say goodbye
If your heart don't have the heart to say
To say goodbye

I know now I was naive
Never knew where this would lead
And I'm not trying to take away
From the good man that he is

But how do I let go when i've
Loved him for so long and i've
Given him all that I could
Was it something wrong that we did
Because others infiltrated
What went wrong with something once so good

How do you find the words to say
To say goodbye
If your heart don't have the heart to say
To say goodbye

Is this the end are you sure
How should you know when you've never been here before
It's so hard to just let go
When this is the one and only love I've ever known

So how do you find the words to say
To say goodbye
If your heart don't have the heart to say
To say goodbye

The Life
Verse 1:
Everyday I realize that this might be the last day of my life
Walkindown the streets I find (heyyyyy)
I'm coming closer and closer to losing my mind
Cuz when it rains, it pours
Isn't life worth more?
I don't even know what I'm hustlinfor
You gotta do what you gotta do
Just to make it through
All the hard times that's gonna face you

Chorus:
This is the life
(this is the life)
Striving to survive
(yeah 6x's)

Verse 2:
Living will always be a struggle
Looking for someone true to love you
Looking back I see all the horrors
This madness makes me wanna holla
I watch slowly, internally
I'm dying
Pillowcases wet from all my crying
Cuz there is nothing more to be here for
Take me away
I can't live that life no more

(chorus 4x's)

This is the life
Yeah (6x's)

There will never come a day
You will ever
hear me say
That I want
Or need to be without you

All I need is you in my life

Cause I never felt
this way about lovin ...Nooooo
Never felt so good..baby
Never felt this
way about loveback to top
Butterflyz
Mmhmn mmhmn
Lately when I look into your eyes I realize
You're the only one I need in my life
Baby I just don't know how to describe
How lovely you made me feel inside

You give me butterflyz
Got me flying so high in the sky
I can't control the butterflyz

You give me butterflyz
Got me flying so high in the sky
I can't control the butterflyz

*it seems like the likley thing*
From the start you told me I would be your queen
But never had I imagined such a feeling
Joy is what you bring
I want to give you everything

You give me butterflyz
Got me flying so high in the sky
I can't control the butterflyz

You give me butterflyz
Got me flying so high in the sky
I can't control these butterflyz

You and I are destiny
I know now you were made for me

Oh oh ooh
I can't control it
It's driving me
Taking me over

You give me butterflyz
Got me flying so high in the sky
I can't control the butterflyz

You give me butterflyz
Got me flying so high in the sky

Why Do I Feel So Sad
Friends we've been for so long
Now true colors are showing
Makes me wanna
cry oh yes it does
Cuz I had to say goodbye

By now I should
know
That in time things would change
So it shouldn't be so bad
So why
do I feel so sad

How can I adjust
To the way that things are
going
It's killing me slowly
Oh I just want it to be how it used to
be

Cuz I wish that I could stay
But in time things must change
So
it shouldn't be so bad
So why do I feel so sad

You cannot hide the way
you feel inside I realize
Your actions speak much louder than words
So
tell me why oh

By now I should know that
That in time things would
change
So it shouldn't be it shouldn't be so bad
So why do I feel so
sad

By now I should know
That in time things must change
So it
shouldn't be so bad
So why do I feel so sad

By now by now I should
know
That in time things must grow
And I had to leave you behind
So why
do I feel so sad
If it couldn't be that bad
Tell me why

By now I
should know
That in time things would change
So it shouldn't be so
bad
So why do I feel so sad
