Yours

Oh, I want to be yours

Heart of mine, I'm sure you'll agree
We've never been in love before, honestly
I think she's the one
The lady for me
I know she feels the same way sincerely
Girl you're the on my mind always
Come feel my nights and my days
You make me so crazy
Darlin' you know I wanna

[Chorus]
I want to be yours
I long to be forever yours
I want to be yours

Every night I go to sleep
I wantcha layin' next to me-truthfully
I need ya by my side
To take care of me, I'm on my hands and knees girl
Come on
And show me the way to your heart
Don't make me wait forever
Now that you know I wanna

[Chorus:Repeat x2]

Oh yeah I'll be right there
Whenever you call me
I'll be there, just call and I'll come running
I'll be there, whenever you need me I'll be there

The Way Love Goes

length: 5:08
I remember how you used to wait by the phone
Counting every minute that I was gone
And you used to call me sweet things in the morning light
After you would hug me so tender
Each and every night
Lately you got so much to do
And your never at home
By the time I get to see you
You need your time alone
I've been too afraid to ask you
But I need to know

[Chorus]
Is this the way love goes
Say it isn't so
Is this the way love goes
Right before my eyes
Wearing a disguise
I need to know
Is this the way love goes

Staring at a photograph of you and I inframed
When I blink my eyes you start to fade away
Oh, I recall that day in fall and all the things you said
All of the promises that you never kept
Lately you got so much to do
And you're never at home
When I finally get to see you
You need you're time alone
I've been too afraid to ask you
But I need to know

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
Everybody needs to a love they can count on
I'm the kind of man who needs to know exactly where I stand

Stayin' up late at night I'm wondering
How we can make it right
Never gonna say goodbye
I'm crying
Find a way to make it right

Goodbye My Love

length: 4:24
There never was a fool like a fool in love
I oughtta know
But I can tell you one thing this fool

Love Me, Hold Me

length: 4:57
Every night I lie awake
Wishin' I could love you with all my heart can take
Tell me my love this time, do you want me to stay?

You say you're in need of a little love
And baby, it's me you're thinking of
And nothing in this world could keep me away

Darlin', finally I've waited so long for you to come to me
Darlin', with each passing day, there's nothing left to say
But I'm so glad we waited, it was worth the wait so

Love me, hold me, don't hesitate
Let's celebrate our love together
Love me, hold me, don't hesitate
Let's celebrate our love together
Let's make it last forever, for always

Can I open the shades? You ask me why
So we can have the moon and the stars as our only light
Cherish the moment, let's take our time

Passion flies across the room
The sweet aroma of true love in bloom
Softly I whisper, "Forever be mine"

Oh now I see, you're everything I dreamed of now it's reality
Oh love's so rare, now it's ours to share
It's me for only you and only you for me so

Love me, hold me, don't hesitate
Let's celebrate our love together
Love me, hold me, don't hesitate
Let's celebrate our love together
But make it last forever, for always

Always I've been waiting to hear you say
You'd be mine for always
What would I do, do without you?
Know that it's true, I'm all about you darlin'

Love me, hold me, don't hesitate
Let's celebrate our love together
Love me, hold me, don't hesitate
Let's celebrate our love together

What would I do, do without you?
Know that it's true
Don't hesitate, let's celebrate our love together
Don't hesitate, let's celebrate our love together
Don't hesitate, let's celebrate our love together

After the Love

length: 5:29
Oh, lay lay lay lay
Oh, oh, oh, oh, ah, hey hey

I thought that love would conquer all
That nothing could break my fall
The moment you left my side, oh baby
And now there's nothing left to say
Ever since you went away
I've been yearning for you deep inside

I can't believe that it's over
In my arms is where you belong
When I think about the love we shared
How did we go wrong
And how, can I go on, can I go on

[Chorus]
Sometimes you can't let go
Of the love you thought was yours
Mine and yours
Will I ever get over cause I've come to know
That it's so hard to carry on
After the love is gone
After the love is gone

If I had only had a clue
That I'd end up losing you
I might of held on to my heart, oh girl
Taking for granted you'd be mine
Till the end of time
Has torn my world apart

And I can't believe that it's over
In my arms is where you belong
When I think about the love we shared
How did we go wrong
And how, can I go on, can I go on

[Chorus]

I can't believe that it's over
In my arms is where you belong
When I think, think about the love we shared
How did we go wrong
And how, can I go on, can I go on

[Chorus]

After the love is gone
I must go on
I gotta be strong
After the love is gone
I can't believe it, but she's gone
But I gotta be strong
I gotta gotta gotta be, gotta gotta gotta be
Gotta gotta gotta be strong
Oh, after the love is gone

One Last Cry

length: 4:56
writer: Brandon Barnes, Brian McKnight
My shattered dreams and broken
Heart are mending on the shelf.
I saw you holding hands standing so close to someone else.
Now I sit all alone, wishing all my feeling was gone.
I'd give my best to you
Nothing for me to do
But have one last cry.

[Chorus]
One last cry
Before I leave it all behind
I've gotta put you out of my mind,this time
Stop living a lie.
I guess I'm down to one last cry.

Cry

I was here,you were there.
Guess we never could agree.
While the sun shines on you,
I need some love to rain on me.
Still, I sit all alone,
Wishing all my feelings were gone.
Gotta get over you.
Nothing for me to do
But have one last cry.

[Chorus]

I know I gotta be strong,
But 'round me
Life goes on and on and on, and on
I'm gonna dry my eyes
Right after I have my one last cry.

[Chorus]

Never Felt This Way

length: 5:36
There will never come a day
You'd ever hear me say
That I want and need to be without you
I want to give my all
Baby just hold me, simply control me
Cause your arms, they keep away the lonelies
When I look into your eyes
Then I realize
That all I need is you in my life
All I need is you in my life

[Chorus]
Cause I've never felt this way about lovin'
Never felt so good
Never felt this way about lovin'
It feels so good

How it takes my breath
Starts a burning in my chest
Make me weak, when I think about you
Makes me want to give my all
Life wouldn't mean a thing
Not a happy song to sing
Just emptiness if I had to live without you
When I look into your eyes
Then I realize
That all I need is you in my life
All I need is you in my life

[Chorus: x3]

I Couldn't Say

length: 5:45
Baby, I saw you standing all alone
In the moonlight, wishing as I may
And I might have just one night with you, pretty mama
Showdown, not ready but willing
To slow down, 'cause I want to please you
I'll be around, after the lovin' is through

But if we move too fast
Will we wake up bein' strangers?
We've got time, let it pass
'Cause how will we know
How far it will go, will it end?

I couldn't say, I love you tomorrow
It's too big a chance to take
'Cause I'd be afraid you'd love me tomorrow
It's too big a move to make
We'd be makin' a big mistake

Don't get me wrong, 'cause I want you
More than you know, but let me get to know you
Make my heart show what my feelings show
Then I'll get closer to you

But I'm just so helpless against your touch
I'm defenseless, you're makin' me weak
But I've got to be strong
If right by you, I'm gonna do

But if we move too fast
Will we wake up bein' strangers?
We've got time, now let it pass
'Cause how will we know
How far it will go, will it end?

I couldn't say I love you tomorrow
It's too big a chance to take
'Cause I'd be afraid you'd love me tomorrow
It's too big a move to make
We'd be makin' a big mistake

But if we move too fast
Will we wake up bein' strangers?
We've got time, let it pass
'Cause how will we know
How far it will go, will it end?

I couldn't say I love you tomorrow
'Cause I'd be afraid you'd love me tomorrow
I wanna do right by you baby
It's too big a move to make
We'd be makin' a big mistake

I couldn't say I love you tomorrow
It's too big a chance to take
'Cause I'd be afraid you'd love me tomorrow
It's too big a move to make
We'd be makin' a big mistake, yeah

I couldn't say I love you tomorrow
It's too big a move to make
'Cause I'd be afraid you'd love me tomorrow
Yeah baby, it's too big a chance to take
We'd be makin' a big mistake

Stay the Night

length: 5:34
I want you so

Try to say how I feel when I'm holding you close to me
But my temperature rises so I can hardly believe
That finally you came to me we made loneliness our enemy
Don't go, don't you know

Feels so right, and I can hold you longer
If you stay the night, oh
The time is right and we will grow much stronger
If you stay the night tonight pretty baby
Stay the night

Words cannot express to you how I'm burning up deep inside
I took one look and I knew this was a feeling I couldn't fight
But now that you're here with me now that you're here with me, hey
Let's make togetherness our destiny, don't go

Feels so right, and I can hold you longer
If you stay the night, oh
The time is right and we will grow much stronger
If you stay the night tonight with me baby

At the start I thought it was too good
To be true, but know I know that all along
It should have been me and you

At the start I thought it was too good
To be true, but know I know that all along
It should have been me and you

Feels so right
If you stay the night
The time is right
If you stay the night

Feels so right, and I can hold you longer
If you stay the night, oh
The time is right and we will grow much stronger
If you stay the night

It feels so right

Is the Feeling Gone

length: 4:03
Is the feeling gone my love
Is it not as strong to you and i, oh
Are we still in love?
Has the fire died my sweet
Don’t I sweep you off your feet anymore, baby
Tell me if I’m right
This is killing me baby
It makes me wanna cry
The message you’re sending me baby
Tears me up inside but tell me where
Where are all the butterflies
Cause they no longer move inside of you my love, baby
Are they dead and gone
Have they flown away my sweet
Or am I buried somewhere deep inside of you my love, yeah
Tell me where I am
If I’ve done something wrong lady
What’s the nature of my crime
Don’t keep me hanging on baby
This is the place and time

Is the feeling, feeling, feeling gone my love
Where did all this doubt come from in me my love, mama
Have we grown apart
Is it cold right here in my arms
Or have you found another’s heart to keep you warm

Is the feeling gone my love
Is the feeling gone
Tell me if I’m wrong

I Can't Go For That

length: 5:06
I, I'll do anything that you want me to, yeah
Easy, ready, willing, overtime
Where does it stop where do you dare me to draw the line
Use the body now you want my soul
Oh, forget about it no say no go

[Chorus]
Yeah, I, I'll do anything that you want me to, yeah
I'll do almost anything that you want me to, yeah
But I can't go for that, no, no can do
I can't go for that, no, no can do
I can't go for that, no, no can do
I can't go for that, can't go for that
Can't go for that, can't go for that

I can't go for being twice as nice
I can't go on for just repeating the same old line
Use the body now you want my soul
Oh, forget about it now say no go

[Chorus: x2]

Jump into you're eldy just like a swimming pool
Head first to quench for thirst but ended up the fool
Stay cool I wish that I could
But I can't so I shan't
Keep giving it all that I got to give
And that's a hell of a lot of a plan
Why can't you see that I'm the man
Our love could of been great
But a mistake is what you made
My cuisine you're dissin the plate
Never the giver just the taker
Take a listen to the the fact, in fact
Can't go for that

[Chorus]

Oh Lord

length: 4:23
Can you hear me
I'm calling your name oh Lord
I can't go on this way
Will I make it another day

Oh Lord, was I made just to beg and crawl
Who will catch me whenever I fall
Do I even matter at all
I am waiting here for you to answer my call

Can you see me
I'm down on my knees oh Lord
I'm lost and I'm so alone
Does your world have a heart of stone

Oh Lord am I destined to be what I've been
Never a thick and barely a thin
Where do I fit in
I am waiting here for you to answer my call

You say it won't be long
So I got to keep holding on
This world just so cold, so cold, so cold, so cold

Oh Lord am I destined to be what I've been
Never a thick and barely a thin
Where do I fit in
I am waiting here for you to answer my call
I am waiting here for you to answer my call

Oh, oh Lord when you gonna answer my call

My Prayer

length: 3:20
I have been so far away
Counting the time until today
So long I've waited for a chance
When I could spend some time with you
Just with you, yes

You are growing so very fast
And I know I'm always the very last, oh
To help you with a problem
To kiss your hurt if you should happen to fall down
Fall down

But when I'm gone
I need you here to carry on
My son I know you will be strong
Like a burning flame
You're my claim
That's why you've got my name

And just to show
Come what may I love you so
And there will come a day
When all that's mine is yours
To take good care of you and yours I swear
I swear
And this is my prayer
Oh, yes

When I look at you, so hard to believe
You're the younger version of older me
I swear
I swear
And this is my prayer
Oh Lord, this is my prayer
