Miss Me 04:21
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.

Keepin' On 04:23
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

Heaven Sent 04:02
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

Tryin' 03:55
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

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

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

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.

Always 05:11
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.
