Track Name: Miss Me
Well I told you baby “One day you’ll miss me”
I bet that you just didn’t wanna believe me.
Now you’re asking me “Girl, won’t you come over?”
Telling me I could be your lover.

Well I know that’s not what I’m lookin’ for and I know that’s not what I need.
All I know is I’m shootin’ for the door fast enough so that I can leave.

Cause you take and you take and you take from me.
But you don’t give, you don’t give, you don’t give nothing.
So I’m runnin, I’m runnin, I’m runnin fast as I can
Hopin’ all you’ll do is miss me.

Hey baby won’t you just give up now?
Don’t pretend like we’re working things out.
Cause I don’t care if you’re feeling alone,
So I won’t pick up when you dial my phone.

Well I know that’s not what I’m lookin’ for and I know that’s not what I need.
All I know is I’m shootin’ for the door fast enough so that I can leave.

Cause you take and you take and you take from me.
But you don’t give, you don’t give, you don’t give nothing.
So I’m runnin, I’m runnin, I’m runnin fast as I can
Hopin’ all you’ll do is miss me.

Baby I told you that you’re only gonna get one shot with me.
So you don’t deserve the chance to be on your knees,
Beg me please.

[Piano Solo]

Cause you take and you take and you take from me.
But you don’t give, you don’t give, you don’t give nothing.
So I’m runnin, I’m runnin, I’m runnin fast as I can
Hopin’ all you’ll do is miss me.
Track Name: Tell Me It's Fine
Baby, oh my baby, I’ve been trying
Trying hard not to hurt you.
But darlin’, oh darlin’, I’m not sorry
that it’s all I do.

If you don’t give your all then you ain’t gon’ fall like I fell.
And if you ain’t gon’ try then I’m not gonna lie to myself

And say that it’s fine
Say that it’s fine
You know it ain’t right
Make up your mind
And tell me it’s fine
Tell me it’s fine
You know it ain’t right
Make up your mind

I can’t listen to your shit when
I know you ain’t gon’ give in and swallow your pride.
If you’re pushin’, I’ll keep pullin’,
Don’t know who you think you’re foolin,
You’re losin’ this fight.

If you don’t give your all then you ain’t gon’ fall like I fell.
And if you ain’t gon’ try then I’m not gonna lie to myself

And say that it’s fine
Say that it’s fine
You know it ain’t right
Make up your mind
And tell me it’s fine
Tell me it’s fine
You know it ain’t right
Make up your mind
Track Name: Don't Owe You A Thing
You were the one that walked away
And honey I, I tried to make you stay

So if you wanna leave, I'm beggin' you baby
Won't you please leave every part of me cause I

Don't owe you a thing
Nah baby I don't owe you a thing, I...
Don't owe you a thing

You, you went and left me behind
And I swear, oh I swear, I lost my god d*amn mind

but you didn't give it back.
So keep your eyes open wide because I told my brothers to beat your ass

So if you wanna leave, I'm beggin' you baby
Won't you please leave every part of me cause I

Don't owe you a thing
Nah baby I don't owe you a thing, I...

Track Name: Keepin' On
Oh you don't have the time
the time to sit around and cry.
Oh you don't have the time to be
worried about everything.
There's so much to do but only so much time
Don't be afraid this is a chance to shine.

When you want something so bad
It won't always come so easily.
Something like you've never had
Oh but it could be the best thing, honey.
But there's so much to do and only so much time
Don't be afraid this is a chance to shine.
Oh this is your chance to shine

Just get it together
Keep on keepin' on
Oh you could be better
Keep on keepin' on
Life isn't forever
Keep on keepin' on
Oh you gotta want it, so just keep on keepin' on

Oh my mama always said,
"Baby girl you were made for this"
So when she put that in my head
I knew that I would do anything to get it
I don't understand how I'd do something else
"It's all on you now, girl you don't get no help"
Oh I had to tell myself...

Just get it together
Keep on keepin' on
Oh you could be better
Keep on keepin' on
Life isn't forever
Keep on keepin' on
Oh you gotta want it, so just keep on keepin' on

Are you gonna fight for it?
All day and night for it?
Are you gonna fight for?
Oh you gotta want, oh you gotta want it now.

Just get it together
Keep on keepin' on
Oh you could be better
Keep on keepin' on
Life isn't forever
Keep on keepin' on
Oh you gotta want it, so just keep on keepin' on
Track Name: Heaven Sent
He's heaven sent to me
He's an angel in every way (hey hey hey)
He's heaven sent to me
Yeah he lifts me every day (hey hey hey)

Back in the day, lord how the boys would call
But I was immune, I couldn't hear what they said at all.
I was stuck in California
waitin' for a lover
boy to come and steal my heart.
Then he walked up to me
just like in the movies
now you couldn't tear us apart.

He's heaven sent to me
He's an angel in every way (hey hey hey)
He's heaven sent to me
Yeah he lifts me every day (hey hey hey)
And a fool such as I
could never love some other guy (tell 'em why)
Cause he's heaven sent to me
When he holds me all I say is hey hey hey

I started to fall the moment that he caught my eye.
He's so pretty and tall, I just knew that he was bonafide.
He said, "Rocky, you're the finest, make me feel the highest baby that I've ever felt"
Well now I believe it sugar
when we start to hook up
it's gonna be sweet as hell.

He's heaven sent to me
He's an angel in every way (hey hey hey)
He's heaven sent to me
Yeah he lifts me every day (hey hey hey)
And a fool such as I
could never love some other guy (tell 'em why)
Cause he's heaven sent to me
When he holds me all I say is hey hey hey
Track Name: Tryin'
If love is the answer
You'll need to ask me again
If love is the cure
You've got me sick in the head
And if your love is bright as day
Then I only wanna see the moon
Cause the faster the pace that you chase me
The faster you're gonna loose me

I see that you're tryin'
I don't want you to go
I see that you're tryin'
I just want you to know
If you keep tryin'
Then maybe one day I might ask you to stay.

You must be tired
of chasing me around
Well I told you that it's hopeless
for some reason you just won't back down
You say that you need me
And I say that I need a little space.
Your patience will pay off soon, if you learn to wait

Cause I see that you're tryin'
I don't want you to go
I see that you're tryin'
I just want you to know
If you keep tryin'
Then maybe one day I might ask you to stay.

I might ask you to stay
Track Name: Come Here
I know you must think I'm crazy
but the only thing that I'm crazy 'bout is you.
I've really been on your case lately
only because I want you to do what you gotta do.
Baby, I'm a woman just looking at for my man
and the things you need
Yes, I'm a woman just doing all that I can
to keep you pleased
Because I know

That it ain't easy to be the one to please me
But you, you do your thing

So come here
So come here baby, I'll show you I'm your lady
and I won't ever let you go
Cause I need
Someone to love me and tell me that they need me
so I don't ever feel alone

Sometimes it's so complicated
but you know they say, "easy come, easy go."
I hope you know that we'll make it
oh baby you always had me from "hello"
Baby I'm your woman, and you know you're my man
and you'll always be
Yes I'm your woman. And I'll do all that I can
just to keep you pleased
Because I know

That it ain't easy to be the one to please me
But you, you do your thing

So come here
So come here baby, I'll show you I'm your lady
and I won't ever let you go
Cause I need
Someone to love me and tell me that they need me
so I don't ever feel alone
Track Name: Fool That You Are
I do love you, I do.
But I don't always treat you fair.
And I do need you, I do
All too much I swear

Oh but you're so foolish
To keep me close
But not close enough
Yes you're so foolish
To think I'd be the one to trust
Fool that you are
Fool that you are

I don't want to break your heart
So I'll try to change my ways for you
No I don't want to tear apart
But it's just a matter of a day or two

Oh but you're so foolish
To keep me close
But not close enough
Yes you're so foolish
To think I'd be the one to trust

Fool that you are
Fool that you are
Fool that you are (2X)

Oh but you're so foolish
To keep me close
But not close enough
Yes you're so foolish
To think I'd be the one to trust
Track Name: (Baby) It's You
I can't give you up
So I'll take you down if you leave
Cause I can't get enough
You're the reason why I can breathe
So don't you dare tell me I'd
make better use of my time, that's not your call
it's mine.
So how could you walk out
and say that it's easy
I let down my guard
and gave you my heart
I need you to see that
I'm not that girl that always needs somebody.
I'm not that girl that always needs a hand
but if i do,
oh if I do, then

Baby, it's you.
Baby, it's you.
I need you.
Baby, it's you.

One more night with you
could be all I need
but I've got to show you
what you can't already, already see
Might be too young to know what's best
but sugar I will never rest until you're mine
always mine.
I was naive to
make you love too soon
I let down my guard
gave you my heart
I need you to see that

I'm not that girl that always needs somebody.
I'm not that girl that always needs a hand
but if i do,
oh if I do, then

Baby, it's you.
Baby, it's you.
I need you.
Baby, it's you.
Track Name: Always
Father, you don't have to worry.
Oh my father, you don't have to sigh.
Cause I'll always be your little girl.
You might worry 'bout me
and how I will be
but I want you to see that
I will be alright.

Brothers, we don't have to fight now.
Oh my brothers, let's all stand side by side now.
Cause I'll always be your little sister.
I've got so much respect
and I wish you the best
and I hope that you'll be
so much better than me.

Mother, you don't have to fret now.
My sweet mother, I am all grown up now.
But I'll always be a part of you.
You have taught me so much
and you've made me so tough
and I don't think that I
would ever get by without you.

I need you
I need you
I need you
oh all of you.
