1 Piano & I

Oh oh my goodness
I didn't know I was here
Do you know my name? [Can't go wrong when you try]
Always got to try
No matter how long that shit take
Yeah, yeah
Uh
Whatever stops you from dreamin'
Whatever tries to stop you from livin'
Flip it

Welcome home
Cuz right now what I got to do is
I gotta amp myself up as well as you
So yea, so what it took me like
Maybe 2 years and shit
But I fell in prepared
You know what I'm sayin
And I'm feelin' a little more ready for the world
And less loss
As I once was

So come on
What chu waitin' on?
Feel me, feel me, feel me
What, uh, yeah
What, uh, yeah


2 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


3 How Come You Don't Call Me

But all I wanna know baby is
If what we had was good...

[Verse 1:]
I keep your picture beside my bed [mmm]
And I still remember everything you said [mmm]
I always thought our love was so rare I guess I was wrong
Always thought you'd be by my side papa now you're gone
[And I'm not tryna hear that sh*t]

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

[Verse 2:]
Still light the fire on the rainy night
Still I invision you holding me tight
Everybody say
Everybody say that we should never part
Tell me baby baby baby why
Why you wanna go and break my heart

[Chorus]

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
Oooh won't you call me sometime Papa

Whhhyyyy 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


4 Fallin'

I keep on fallin'
In and out of love
With you
Sometimes I love ya
Sometimes u make me blue
Sometimes I feel good
At times I feel used
Lovin you darlin'
Makes me so confused

I keep on
Fallin'
In and out of love with you
I never loved someone
The way that I love you

Verse 2
Oh, oh , I never felt this way
How do you give me so much pleasure
And cause me so much pain
Just when I think
I've taken more than would a fool
I start fallin' back in love with you

I keep on
Fallin'
In and out of love with you
I never loved someone
The way that I love you

Bridge
Oh baby
I, I, I, I'm fallin'
I, I, I, I'm fallin'
Fall

I keep on
Fallin'
In and out of love with you
I never loved someone
The way that I love you

I'm fallin'
In and out of love with you
I never loved someone
The way that I love you

I'm fallin'
In and out of love with you
I never loved someone
The way that I love you


5 Troubles

Yeah, yeah
[Dear Lord,
I cant take no more
This pain in my heart
That just bothers me
Day by day and at night
The stars feel like
A shadow through my wall
Oh my goodness]
Feel like the world
Is closing on me
Feel like my dreams
Will never come to be
I keep on slippin'
Deeper into myself
And I'm scared
[So scared]

[Chorus:]
If you're troubled
You just gotta let it go
And if you're worried baby
You just gotta let it go
All the hustles
Safe for nothing
You just gotta take it slow
And you me leave baby
All you do is let me know

How does it feel
That my mind is
Constantly trying
To pull me down?
I can't seem to get no way
Continuous mistakes
I know I made before
How long will I feel so?

[Chorus]

Ya, can't stop, umm


6 Rock Wit U - (with Isaac Hayes)

There's no escape on the spell you have placed
Leaving my heart and my mind
Foolish am I if I was to try to ever leave you behind

I wanna rock wit you, come give me all your love
No matter what we do, I wanna rock wit you
Wit you wit only you, wit you wit only you
I wanna rock wit you

I'll stay and walk this life wit you
No matter what we may go through
Dead broke, no job, no house, no ride
I'm goin' stay right by your side

I wanna rock wit you, come give me all your love
No matter what we do, I wanna rock wit you
Wit you wit only you, wit you wit only you
I wanna rock wit you

Don't question where you're headed to, my love
Don't be afraid, just believe in love

I wanna rock wit you
No matter what we do
Wit you wit only you
I wanna rock wit you

I wanna rock wit you
No matter what we do
Wit you with only you
I wanna rock wit you

I wanna rock wit you
No matter what we do
Wit you wit only you
I wanna rock wit you

do your thing, do your thing

[fade out]


7 Woman's Worth, A

[Verse 1:]
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
[Cause baby you know I'm worth it]

[Bridge:]
Wanna please, wanna keep, wanna treat your woman right
Not just talk to but show
That she knows she's worth your time
You will lose if you choose to refuse to put her first
She will and she can find a man
Who knows her worth

[Chorus:]
Cause 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
[Mmmm mmmm....]

[Verse 2:]
If you treat me fairly, I'll give you all my goods
Treat you like a real woman should
[Baby I know you're worth it]
If you never play me
Promise not to bluff
I'll hold you down when shit gets rough
[Cause baby I know you're worth it]

[Bridge:]
She walks an extra mile with smile
All the while being true
Don't take for granted the passions
That she has for you
You will lose if you choose to refuse to put her first
She will and she can find a man
Who knows her worth

[Chorus]

[Verse 3:]
No need to read between the lines aloud for you
Just hear this song
Cause you can't go wrong when you value
A woman's, a woman's, a woman's, a woman's

9 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


10 Life, The

Everyday I realize that this might be the last day of my life
Walking down the street I find that I'm coming closer and closer to losing my
mind
'Cause when it rains, it pours
Isn't life worth more? I don't even know what I'm hustlin' for
You've gotta do what you gotta do just to make it through
All the hard times that's going to face you

This is the life, trying to survive
This is the life, trying to survive

Living will always be a struggle looking for someone to love you
Looking back at single horrors, this madness makes me want to hide
Slowly, internally, I'm dying
Pillow case is wet from all my crying
There is nothing more for me to live for
Take me away, I can't live that life no more

This is the life, trying to survive
This is the life, trying to survive

This is the life, trying to survive
This is the life, trying to survive

This is the life, trying to survive
This is the life, trying to survive

[Jimmy Cozier]
Somethin' about the way you smiled at me juss drove me wild

[Alicia Keys]
Like the way you've given me attention through the nite

Everytime I catch you watchin' me I feel somethin' down my spine
I'll play the game, it's just for fun and only for tonite

I wanna know what makes you feel the way you do (you do)
I think you hopin' theres a chance for me and you (and you)
Should I meet you at the bar and say we can't? (we can't)
If theres no way meet at the bar and you say can't (you can't)
Unfair to Mr. Man, unfair to Mr.Man,

[Bridge:]
[Alicia] I know all you wanna know is answers

[Alicia] We both know that we're attracted
Should we let our desires lead?

I wanna know if you feel the way I do (I do)
I wanna know if theres a chance for me and you (and you)
If theres no way, meet at the bar and you say can't (you can't)

12 Never Felt This Way

Huh, huh

There will never come a day
You will ever hear me say
That I want or need to be without you
I want to give my all
Baby just hold me
Simply control me
Because your arms they keep away the loneliness
When I look into your eyes
Then I realize
All I need is you in my life
All I need is you in my life
Cuz I never felt this way about lovin
No
Never felt so good baby
Never felt this way about lovin


13 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 light you give
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


14 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


15 Caged Bird

Right now I feel like a bird
Caged without a key
Everyone comes to stare at me
With so much joy and rivalry
They didn't know how I feel inside
Through my smile I cry
They don't know what they're doin' to me
Keeping me from flyin'
That's why I say that
I know why the caged bird sings
Only joy comes from song
She's so rare and beautiful to theirs
Why not just set her free
So she can
Fly, fly, fly
Spreadin her wings and her song
Let her
Fly, fly fly
For the whole world to see
She's like caged bird
Fly, fly
Ooh just let her fly
Just let her fly
Just let her fly
Spread the wings


16 Loving U
