VERSE 1

He said he doesn't express his feelings much (no no)

I wonder if he has any

He won't even let me get through the door (no no)

Maybe because he isn't ready

I never thought what I'm feeling would ever come into fruition (ooo ooo ooo)

Next thing I know (ahh)

I find myself standing in his kitchen kitchen kitchen (ahhhhhhh)



HOOK

This never happens

Ooo what am I doing (what am I doing)

What is it about this guy that is so wooing (that is so wooing)

The more he pushes the more I want to come

How I long for the day that he would come around

And let down his guard with me



VERSE 2

Pick up the phone cause I'm calling you now

Yes that's me on the other line (line)

Somebody told me you were leaving town

But you did not say goodbye to me

If this is true (if this is true)

What am I to do (what am I to do)

When I've fallen for the liking of you (hey)

Baby don't leave

Come back to me darling

And I'll make it worthwhile



HOOK

This never happens

Ooo what am I doing (what am I doing)

What is it about this guy that is so wooing (that is so wooing)

The more he pushes the more I want to come

How I long for the day that he would come around

And let down his guard with me

Together we could live happily

The grass is greener on the other side

The way he spoke let me know

So convincing I gave him a try

And this is how the story goes

He said I'll be your back up to a bigger picture

And I'm hoping you could see the picture

Clear enough to see me standing in it with ya

To be the one you love, hold and adore

Growing with you every day I place no one above you babe

I give you my word and my word is bond

just take my hand and follow

take my hand and follow me

he said don't be afraid to step out of the box

you'll never know unless you unlock the key

quick to judge but you never tried

don't hesitate you just might enjoy it

Mary Jane Mary Jane why do you always flow over the track the same way?

Don't you ever get bored with the same things?

Why do you always flow of the track the same way?

Dream away, live a little babe

HAPPENING


VERSE 1

Left side strong side
Hand across my chest to you I vow to give you every part of me
No holding back from what is meant to be destiny
You knew it would be different
When you took notice
I could tell by the look in your eye
Curiosity let me know that you are ready


HOOK

It's happening
Like you predicted
I'm falling for you
It's happening
Like you predicted (yeah)


VERSE 2

Our chemistry
A diamond in the rough
Then our love refined it
Something unique
There was no denying
Nothing you've experience and you just had to have
You knew it would be different
When you took notice
I could tell by the look in your eye
Curiosity let me know that you are ready.


BRIDGE

Let's raise our glasses and make a toast
To the one who stole my heart
Like a thief in the night
You had me at hello you had me at hello


VAMP

Hello


HOOK

It's happening
Like you predicted
I'm falling for you
It's happening
Like you predicted
Isn't this what you wanted

HOPEFUL


VERSE 1

Together you and I picture-perfect

Well at least that's how I saw it

White picket fence, big house, a dog

A few kids, three-car garage

Creating the American dream

I'm looking at this guy like this is the man of my dreams

Building an empire with my favorite guy

And I just can't hide

The fact I love you more than words can express

I feel the building in my chest

Or is that heartburn?

No I'm just playing

Remember how are used to role-play in

The elevator or wherever we went

We made it to stage

The countless hours we spent

On the phone had you Johnson till the Early morn


HOOK

You see I'm happy for you baby

and even if I didn't say it

as often as I should I hope you make it

back into my arms never be alone you say

I'm happy for you baby

and even if I didn't say it

as often as I should I hope you make it

back into my arms never be alarmed boy


VERSE 2

Looking to get back what we had

I wonder if it's best to let go

I guess I'll never know (I guess I'll never know)

I don't want to let my feelings show but I'm still hopeful (I'm still hopeful yeah)

I want I need to feel the same way that you used to make me

I sit and reminisce but I want more than a daydream

Trying not to get caught up

But I know that I want love


HOOK

You see I'm happy for you baby

and even if I didn't say it

as often as I should I hope you make it

back into my arms never be alone you say

I'm happy for you baby

and even if I didn't say it

as often as I should I hope you make it

back into my arms never be alarmed boy

trying not to get caught up


BRIDGE

I know I can't live in the past baby

I'm just gon' have to take this thing daily

Trying not to get caught up

I know that I want love

Need a real love (2x)

Ima hold it down till the time comes a around

Need a real love


REPEAT HOOK

Track Name: Runaway
RUNAWAY


VERSE 1

Sleepless night heart beating thoughts drifting

Thinking how it could have been

Had we not fallen out over something insignificant (mmm)

The thoughts replaying in my mind

We go through this all the time

And I know I said some hurtful things

But I'm hoping you'll forgive me

Cus I can't imagine life without you

I'll take the good with the bad

And it might be a hard pill to swallow

But don't throw away what we had

What would I do if I didn't have you

You're the reason I love

And if you decided to go your own way

There's no point in holding on


HOOK

So Don't run away run away

Don't run away run away

I want to make it right

But there's something down inside

That keeps me from doing what I want

Don't run away run away

I want to make it right

But there's something down inside

That keeps me from doing what I want



VERSE 2

Another night heart beating, mind drifted

Dreaming how it should've been

If we focused on the love instead fighting and bickering

It's hard to stop wondering can we ever be friends again

Cus I know I said some hurtful things but I'm hoping you still love me

Cus I can't imagine life without you

You take the good with the bad

And it might be a hard pill to swallow

But don't throw away what we had

What would I do if I didn't have you

You're the reason I love

And if you decided to go your own way

There's no point in holding on


HOOK

So Don't run away run away

Don't run away run away

I want to make it right

But there's something down inside

That keeps me from doing what I want

Don't run away run away

I want to make it right

But there's something down inside

That keeps me from doing what I want


Ooooooooh

Track Name: What Do You Do
WHAT DO YOU DO



Laugh and smile when I want to cry

Sing and shout when everything inside

Yearns for the affection with the one I found a connection with

So compatible so close to perfection

Yet these feelings only see rejection

Do I fight for it or let it go into the sea of forgetfulness

While it takes hold

Of something I found so true so dear

How could something so right be so wrong

Nothing's clear what do I do

What do you do




What do you do

When the feelings you had for someone could never be expressed

What do you do

Do you push it aside hide the emotions deny the love that is so true

What do you do( what do you do oh, what do you do)



It's so hard but I try to fight the feelings inside

What I feel something so real

But you aren't mine maybe we can be together in the next lifetime

I try to fight the feelings inside

What I feel something so real

But you aren't mine maybe we can be together in the next lifetime




What do you do( what do you do oh, what do you do)

What do you do( what do you do oh, what do you do)

NEEDS


VERSE 1

What happens when you're in complete

and looking for something

to fill that void

alive but dying underneath

And your silence is so loud

you can't hear Inner voice

Look for happiness in temporary things

and then you're miserable when its gone

Wanting acceptance

but only found rejection until you came along


HOOK

Thought I knew what I wanted

Until you gave me what I needed

thought I knew what I wanted

Until you gave me what I needed

thought I knew what I wanted

until you gave me what I needed

Thought I knew what I wanted

Until you gave me what I needed



VERSE 2

So much happened it knocked me down

But I know one thing

You were there to help me up

So low thought I was underground

That I went off the deep end

You gave me freedom when I was stuck(ohh ohh)

Look for happiness in temporary things

And then your miserable when it's gone

Wanting acceptance but only found rejection till you came along


HOOK

Thought I knew what I wanted

Until you gave me what I needed

Thought I knew what I wanted

Until you gave me what I needed

Thought I knew what I wanted

Until you gave me what I needed

Thought I knew what I wanted

Utill you gave me what's I needed

THE KNOWING


VERSE 1

I don't know why I be playing follow the leader Lord

I thought that you gave everything that I ever needed

I know that I was made in your likeness

I know that I'm a blessing I believe it

I feel the God in me when I'm breathing

But no I ain't no Saint

Still you push me towards my joy

And talk me through my pain


PRE HOOK

When I'm lost inside this world

And I'm not sure which way to go (ohh , you know)

When the silence is to loud

And I can't seem to drown it out (ohh you know)


HOOK

You know what I pray about

You know how to work it out

You know you know you know you know you know you know

You know it all



VERSE 2

Shoot my shot gonna talk my talk

I don't care who like it ima walk my walk

I gotta say thank you for my blessings on top of my blessings

For them times that you keep me protected

You know that I'm foolish but learn me my lessons

And you take the burden when things get to stressful

And keep me safe from all these devils


PRE HOOK

When I'm lost inside this world

I'm not sure which way to go (ohh , you know)

You know how to work it out

You know you know you know you know you know know
