Beautiful Women

length: 4:10

La da da da da da
La da da da da da
Ahh

You can put them on the cover of a magazine
The finest woman you'll ever see
It would be my fantasy
To have them all surrounding me
All of them in love, it seems
They're wanting things that they can only get from me
The best thing about it all
Is I can have them if
I only keep dreaming

From the shores of milan
To the streets of miami
(beautiful women)
From the beauty salons
To the beaches in maui
(beautiful women)

From the coffee shop
To the restaurants
Can you hear me? (yes)
Every place, every town
If you just look around
You'll find beautiful women

Chorus:
Black, puerto rican
Haitian, dominican
Beautiful women
Indian, cuban, jamaican
All of the nations
Beautiful women

East coast, west coast city to the meadow
Burbs to the ghetto
Beautiful women
From cairo, to rio, to montego
Beautiful women, yeah

You know there's no way I could ever be
Without their sensualities
And every time I think that I break free
It's like they always grab me
Everywhere I go, it's like a video
You know exactly what I mean
If there could only be 3 more of me
Then I could keep all these beautiful women

There they go
Doin' what they do to
Make a man go crazy
But it just ain't fair
Cause they got us in a daze
What makes me so amazed
Is that they know it
Cause they're beautiful
Woo, woo, woo, ooh

Ooh ooh, ooh yeah
Oooh ooh
Yeah
Oh

Repeat Chorus x2

From the shores of milan
To the streets of miami
From the beauty salons
To the beaches in maui
From the coffee shop
To the restaurants
Can you hear me?
Every place, every town
Beautiful women

Repeat Chorus to fade

Step On Up

length: 4:54
Been working hard everyday
(9 to 5)
I need a place to get away
(Where I can feel alive)
Seems like my drama, it won't ever cease
(I had to stay away)
Now it's time to find my inner peace
(I'm coming out to play)

This will be my night
I will get up on this floor
And lose what's left of my mind
Let the rhythm take control

[Chorus]
Step on up, let your body go
'cause I know you want to do it so
When you hear the groove
You've gotta know
That it's time to make your move
Just step on up now

This party's got me feeling right, yeah
(I found a place to unwind, oh yeah)
I'm thinking 'bout myself tonight
(Relax and ease your mind)
Ain't holdin' back, I'm gonna let it go
(Throw all my cares away, yeah yeah)
Now I'll be sure to let my feelings flow
(I'm coming out to play)

This will be my night, yeah
I'mma get up on this floor
And lose the last of my mind
Let the rhythm take control

Step on up, let your body go
'cause I know you want to do it so
When you hear the groove
You've gotta know
That it's time to make your move
Just step on up now

And you won't turn away
Gotta get on the floor
Let's go, before it's too late
Keep it movin' all night long

[Chorus To Fade]

Good Guy

length: 3:50
I don't understand your thinking
I thought we were happy guess I was mistaken
Give you all my love and attention
Say you don't want me 'cause something's missing
Gave you all you wanted and you know it's true
All that I was doing meant nothing to you
And if I told you why we'd probably be cool
But I was so good to you so good

But you want a guy that's real nice
That will spend his dough and his time
But then you change and want to thug guy
Who won't act right
Stay with him but he makes you cry
Tell me why it doesn't pay to be the good guy
'cause every time

(Hook)
I try to be the good guy
You take me for granted throw me to the side
Rather have a man that would tell you lies
Tell my why tell my why tell me why
Why should I be the good guy
And get left for the man who don't treat you right
There's nothing good in being good guys
Tell me why tell me why tell me why

I don't understand your reasons
Say you love me then say your leaving
The situation here has really changed me
Don't want to fall in love 'cause you played me
You gotta be kidding me, trying to get rid of me
I did more to you than any brother would do
I was good to you so good

Plus you want to guy that's real nice
That will spend all his dough and his time
But then you change your mind and want to thug guy
Who won't act right
It doesn't pay to be the good guy
You callin' me late nights
Tellin me how he won't act right
Stay with him but he makes you cry

(Hook)

I was good 2 you
Played a fool 4 you
You messed it up for the next girl in my life
I'll never do the things I do for you
Our love just wasn't true
I was so good, so good to you, so good to you
Every time

(Hook x2)

I Finally Know

length: 5:05
I've been searchin'
For the girl of my dreams
The one who'll give all of her love to me
You've been there as a friend indeed
Someone that I could depend
Through thick and thin
My strength when I wanted to give in

You're special to me
Made it easy when I felt lonely
If I only knew then what I know now
My search would've ended long ago

I finally know who she is
The girl you've been trying to help me find
And all of this time she's been right here
She's only around me when you are near

And you spend your time with her everyday
So you know she's perfect in every way
I've been looking for love, and she's looking at me
If you look in the mirror, you'll see what I see

Now I'm in a predicament
And I don't know how to explain
To a friend that's been a friend for so so long
Should I tell you how I feel or leave it alone?
Oh oh, it's amazing how intimidating
I never knew that it was you
And after all this time, it never crossed my mind
That in a friend, a love I'd find

You're special to me
And I hope that we can be much more
My heart is in your hands
So why don't we give love a chance

I finally know who she is
The girl you've been trying to help me find
And all of this time she's been right here
She's only around me when you are near

And you spend your time with her everyday
So you know she's perfect in every way
I've been looking for love, and she's looking at me
If you look in the mirror, you'll see what I see

I'm waiting on a love
A love that stands through anything (anything)
And everything (everything)
With open arms, I (I'm giving you my all)
And every part of me (every part of me)
'cause I know you're my destiny (know you are my destiny)
You'll see finally (now I see finally)

I finally know who she is
The girl you've been trying to help me find
And all of this time she's been right here
She's only around me when you are near

And you spend your time with her everyday
So you know she's perfect in every way
I've been looking for love, and she's looking at me
If you look in the mirror, you'll see what I see

I finally know who she is
The girl you've been trying to help me find
And all of this time she's been right here
She's only around me when you are near

And you spend your time with her everyday
So you know she's perfect in every way
I've been looking for love, and she's looking at me
If you look in the mirror, you'll see what I see

I finally know
I finally know
And I'm so glad He told me so
I thank you Lord for showing me the one
And now my search is done

And you spend your time with her everyday
So you know she's perfect in every way
I've been looking for love, and she's looking at me
If you look in the mirror, you'll see what I see

Pass You By

length: 4:27
writer: Michael McCary, Nathan Morris, Wanya Morris, Shawn Stockman
She was like nothing I'd ever known
Her eyes shine like diamonds in a field of snow
The way destiny led her to me
Made me feel like life was now complete

And now days have passed
The nights gone by
You can see the glow slowly fading from her eyes
Though she denies her pain and her dismay
Know I said this to her anyway

[Chorus]
Don't have to stay with someone
That makes you cry
You'll end up killing all the love you have inside
Can't hope to see the sun
If you don't open your eyes
Girl don't let real love pass you by

Ooh oh no
Ooh don't let real love pass you by

I know you know this
But take it from me
Cause you deserve so much more than you receive
Listen to your heart and let it show
Don't hold on to your pain
Just let it go, let it go

[Chorus:Repeat x2]

Oh yeah
Girl don't let real love pass you by
You can find a love you need
If you set your heart free
Girl...
Don't have to stay with someone
That makes you cry
Don't be discouraged baby
Don't let real love pass you by

[Chorus:Repeat x2]

Don't you let nothing
Don't let no one take you away from love
Don't let real love pass you by
You'll see I know, I know, I know
You'll be alright
Don't let real love pass you by
You just can believe in love, in love, in love, in love
Don't let real love pass you by
Oh yeah
Don't let real love pass you by
Ooh, yeah
Don't let real love pass you by
Don't let, don't let, don't let, don't let
Don't let, don't let, don't let, don't let
Don't let real love pass you by
Oh yeah, oh
Don't let real love pass you by

Dreams

length: 3:47
Here I am again
Wondering if you're okay
Can't stop this troubled heart
'Cause we're apart, miles away
Phone pressed up to my ear
Wish you were here, holding me
A face to go with your sweet voice
Will bring me joy, totally

Chorus:

I know I can't be there
Baby it's alright
I'll be waiting for you tonight
I pray that you'll be there
When I close my eyes
Meet me in my dreams tonight

One thing that never changes
No matter what
I can't wait to see you
Can't wait to feel you
And there's a place of ours, where we can go
Nobody knows
I close my eyes real tight
And make love to you all night

Chorus

I wish I may, I wish you might
Find some time when you sleep tonight
To think of me and I'll appear before your eyes
It's my paradise, your world
You're my heart, my life, my girl
Oooh, can't wait to go to sleep
'Cause there's a possibility, you'll meet me

Ohh, oh oh oh oh
Ohh yeah, oh yeah
I know...

Chorus x 2

I Do

length: 4:11
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Yeah, yeah, yeah

I'm telling the world, here and now
That I'm gonna love you and love you
I take this vow (yeah)
You captured my heart, so long ago
Still there are some critical things
That you should know (yeah yeah yeah)

Do I give all I am
To be all and forever your man?
Do I take you to be?
Without question, the woman for me
Do I promise you? I do
Do I promise you? I do, I do

This love has been worth
But waiting for
This love doesn't matter to me
If it's not yours
As we become one
Through and through
I dedicate all of my life
To loving you (yeah yeah yeah)

Do I give all I am
To be all and forever your man?
Do I take you to be?
Without question, the woman for me
Do I promise you? I do
Do I promise you? I do, I do

To have and to hold
Our passions unfold
I promise a life you won't regret
For better or worse
No one can reverse the way that I've felt
Since we met
And you ain't seen nothing yet

Do I give all I am
To be all and forever your man?
Do I take you to be?
Without question, the woman for me
Do I swear on my life?
We'll be happy as husband and wife

Do I promise you?
Do I promise you?
Do I promise you? I do
Do I promise you? I do, I do (I, I do)

Excuse me, I know we just met
But may I have this dance?

Sitting here with a drink in my hand
Your presence I can't ignore
I must admit I like watching you dance
But it seems like I've seen this before
Girl, you look like my first wife
Though I've never been married before
So I kiss your hand and tell you "Thank you"
You turn and ask me what for

For our first kiss, oh, next week
For when we make love, in six weeks
For the ring you wore probably three months from now
For when you said "I do" next March
And for those beautiful children of ours
Yes, I know it might sound strange 'cause we just met
But I thank you in advance

(Shawn, help me sing it)

Hi, my name is Shawn
Tell me your name
Although I know the last one
It's funny that we're shaking hands
(Wait a minute, I know this hand)
It's the same hand (I'll hold in front of a minister)
Same hand (when you're havin' my son and his sister)
I don't mean to sound so bold and forward
But I thank you in advance

For our first kiss, oh, next week
For when we make love, in six weeks
For the ring you wore probably three months from now
For when you said "I do" next March
And for those beautiful children of ours
Yes, I know it might sound strange 'cause we just met
But I thank you in advance

It's like I came back in time to tell you thank you
You were as beautiful then as you are now
Look in the mirror, there is a picture
Of you and the man you love

For our first kiss, oh, next week
For when we make love, in six weeks
For the ring you wore probably three months from now
For when you said "I do" next March
And for those beautiful children of ours
Yes, I know it might sound strange 'cause we just met
But I thank you in advance

For our first kiss, oh, next week
For when we make love, in six weeks
For the ring you wore probably three months from now
For when you said "I do" next March(?)
And for those beautiful children of ours
Yes, I know it might sound strange 'cause we just met
But I thank you in advance

I, I, I, I, I
I thank you in advance, ooh
Oh oh oh

Never Go Away

length: 5:07
Come here baby
Let me talk to you
I've been watching you
And you look so, so good tonight
Words just can't express
The way that you're makin' me feel
I'm just captured by your love
And your sensuality
Let me explain

There you are, standing there
Make me want to reach out and touch you
And run my fingers through your hair
I know you gotta go
But I want you to stay
So we can get a little closer
And do things my way

Baby, you're so beautiful
And you're special too
You make me want to do things, yeah
I never thought I'd do
Like put you up in my home
Buy you fancy things
We can make lots and lots of babies
And I'll buy you a big diamond ring, ohh

[Chorus]
Never, never go
Never go away from me
Baby, stay with me
Oh, never, never go
Never go away from me
Baby, stay with me

Breathe out, so I can breathe you in
want to know every single detail
Feel the movement of your skin
If you are to ever leave me
My heart would sho 'nuff die
So please be with me forever
And don't you ever say goodbye

Never, never go
Never go away from me
Baby, stay with me
Oh, never, never go
Never go away from me
Baby, stay with me

See you are (you are everything to me)
Can't you see baby
All of my friends think I'm crazy
Ooh, but they don't know
They don't know
A thing 'bout you and me

[Chorus To Fade]

Lovely

length: 5:30
Lying here
With my arms above my head
Hungry for your love
Waiting to be flare
Your body speaks to mine
And I understood every word
Told me that you needed me
At least that's what I heard
I'm trying to hold on
But I don't know for how long...

Don't make me wait too long...
Oohh...
Love me, love me, love me, love me, love me, love me right
(Oohh...oohh...)
Breathe me, taste me, touch me, take me in your arms tonight
All I want to do is
Watch you watch me,
Feel you fill me up with pure delight
That makes it easier to love you
Love me, love me, love me, love me, love me, love me right, love me right...

Why don't you tell me what you want from me girl
Let me dive into your ocean
I can find your precious pearl (I can find your precious pearl)
As the moon evades our bedroom
And reveals the sweat on your back (on your back...yeah)
It increases my intensity to go there and never come back
I'm trying to hold on
To hold on
But I don't know for how...long...
Yeah...

Love me, love me, love me, love me, love me, love me right (come on)
Breathe me, taste me, touch me (touch me baby),
Take me in your arms tonight
All I want to do is
Watch you watch me,
Feel you fill me up with pure delight (fill me up with pure delight)
That makes it easier to love you
Love me, love me, love me, love me, love me, love me right, love me right...

Oh how you tease me
Driving me crazy
Want you to please me
So come on lady
(Oohh c'mon) That's enough tug
She takes a step back
See her getting excited
By the way I react
Moving in slow
I can smell her perfume (she smells so good)
She's moving closer still
I know my time's coming soon (oohh make it come)
Lady are you ready
Can't take it no more
Ooh I don't think you're ready
For all that I have
I'm trying to hold on
But I don't know for how long
C'mon girl, I need you, take me right now
Love me
Yeah...love me
Oohh...oohh...love me (baby)
Love me right now
Oohh...oohh...touch me...touch me...oohh
So...so easy (so easy)
I want to make you feel so good
Love me lady...love me right, oohh
(Right now) Can I love you now...can I love you now...oohhh
Take me in your arms tonight (take me in your...)
(Can I taste you, can I touch you, can I feel it baby)
Fill me up with pure delight (that's what I talked about)
Oohh I want you...so real...
(I want you so bad) Lady won't you love me now
I want your body now, I want your body now, I want your body, I want your body...
Love me lady love me now
(Oohhh...oohhh...)
Take me in your arms tonight (slow down...it's OK baby)
Fill me up with pure delight (alright...fill...fill me up with, fill me up with your love)
Lady won't you love me now
La la la la la la la la la la la laaaa...
I want you touch me

Know What You Want

length: 5:18
I know that your heart has been so heavy baby
Tryin’ to find peace of mind
Thinkin’ ’bout him all the time
You gotta clear those guilty feelings lady
Gave him everything you had
That’s no cause for feeling bad

Girl, I know you
You’re too strong to
Let a man who don’t understand
Turn it ’round on you
So don’t take all the weight
You can still be who you wanna be
If you have it in your heart

Know what you want
Don’t let him break your heart
Don’t let him trick you into
Thinkin’ that it’s all your fault
Cuz you’ve got a right baby
To want a love
Who will be anything and everything
Anytime you want

I understand your frustrations lady
You’ve been there far too long for
Him to ever treat you wrong
Now you gotta learn to live for you, lady
Let your mind be inspiration now
Cuz your heart alone won’t do

Girl, I know you
You’re too strong to
Let a man who don’t understand
Turn it ’round on you
So don’t take all the weight

Don’t let him trick you into
Thinkin’ that it’s all your fault

Never let you go astray
Girl you deserve the very best that love has to give
I will put up a fight, I’ll do everything right
As long as I live, I’ll give all I can give

Know what you want
Don’t let him break your heart
Don’t let him trick you into
Thinkin’ that it’s all your fault
Cuz you’ve got a right baby

Do You Remember

length: 4:18
Couldn't have been more than a day over three
Tried to do and be everything that I saw on TV
That won't work now like it did work back then
But then it was easier to imagine for me

We never had to care which party would win
Would the fighting go on, would it ever end?
Yeah, yeah
And I know rock 'n roll was the safest way to be
When we were free, so young and free

And we didn't have a care in the world
We were just too young to understand, at all
And if you feel what I'm feelin'
Then you remember

Tell me do you remember when
Everything in life was so much better then
Tell me do you remember when
Do you remember?

Do you, do you remember?
We never had to save for the rainy day
Just enjoying this time in our lives company
Surely we never needed to think about the time
Because we were free (then we were free)
So young and free

And we didn't have a care in the world
And we were just too young to understand, at all
Ooh, and since you feel what I'm feelin'
I know you remember

Tell me do you remember when
Everything in life was so much better then
Tell me do you remember when
Do you remember?

I Miss You

length: 4:05
Thought I heard your voice yesterday
When I turned around to say
That I loved you baby
I realize, it was just my mind
Played tricks on me

And it seems colder lately at night
And I try to sleep with the lights on
Every time the phone rings
I pray to God it's you
And I just can't believe
That we're through

I miss you
There's no other way to say it
And I can't deny it
I miss you
It's so easy to see
I miss you and me

Is it turning over this time
Have we really changed our minds about each other's love
All the feelings that we used to share
I refuse to believe
That you don't care

I miss you
There's no other way to say it
And I, and I can't deny it
I miss you
It's so easy to see
I miss you and me

I've got to gather myself as together
I've been through worst kinds of weather
If it's over now
Then I'll be strong
Can't believe that you're gone
I've got to carry over

I miss you
There's no other way to say it
And I, and I can't deny it
I miss you
It's so easy to see
I miss you and me

Oh there's no other way to say it
I can't deny it
I miss you baby
It's so easy to see
I miss you and me

Oh no other way to say it
I miss you baby
There's no other
That you're deprived of me now
That you're deprived of me now
I miss you
Said I can't deny it
I, I, I, I miss you baby
It's so easy to see
I miss you and me

But darlin' I'll find a way
To let you know what you meant to me
Guess it was meant to be
I hold you in my heart
As life's most precious part

Oh darlin'
I dream about you often my pretty darlin'
(Darlin' you're so fine)
I love the way you soften my life with your love
Your precious love uh huh oh

I was living like half a man
Then I couldn't love but now I can
You pick me up when I'm feeling sad
More soul than I ever had
Gonna love you every single night
Cause I think you're too outta sight

Oh darlin'
I dream you often my pretty darlin'
(Darlin' you're so fine)
I love the way soften my life with your love
Your precious love uh huh huh

Woah oh oh oh

Every night darlin'
Gonna love you every single night, yes I will
Cause I think you're too doggone outta sight

Oh darlin'
I dream you often my pretty darlin'
(Darlin' you're so fine)
I love the way soften my life with your love
Your precious love uh huh huh
Oh
