Baby, I never seen nobody like you
You're a good friend, you know, you've been there for me
From the beginning, that's why I love you
I mean I place no one above you, no what I'm sayin'?
Anything you want, you just come to Daddy
Listen

When I discovered you I discovered a piece within
A joy like no other, you are my closest friend
Girl, if you were a number you'd be a perfect 10
Right out of the blue sky you were heaven sent
The way we make love over and over again
If I had to describe it there'd be nowhere to begin
And I'm so proud to be your next of kin
Bring a train over me when I had no reason

[Chorus]
Oh, plenty caramel coated taffies
Chocolate covered strawberries
Love so sweet
You're my chocolate factory
Gumdrops mixed with chocolate milk bars
There's so much variety, love so sweet
You're my chocolate factory

Now if I could write a book on how you made me feel
The title would read a strong black man and that's for real
I been going round and round just like a Ferris wheel
And in and out of relationships with out appeal
Ain't nobody else on Gods green earth for me
If we turn ourselves together, we'll make the perfect team of dreams
Change me for the world as long as I exist
Always in the kitchen cookin' up my favorite meal

[Chorus]

You're that puzzle piece that completes me (girl something so sweet)
Girl you're everything (girl you're everything that I need)
You're my escape when I want to be free (when I want to be free)
You full of plenty treats (like peppers and sweet tarts, big blue red hot)
Baby you are

Many lovers has come, and
Many lovers have gone
Similar to an old fashion song
(A thousand years from now we'll be still putting it down my baby)

You can change the frame,
But the picture remains the same
Similar to the sun after the rain
(A thousand years from now we'll be still putting it down my baby)

Baby girl in other words for ever more
I'll be here (I'll be here)
Cause, my whole life's been full of joy every since
You came here, girl

My whole world goes around,
Because you spin me yeah (spin me)
And every time we're done making love girl
You makes me wanna

Snap in the name of love, snap in the name of love (snap my fingers)
Clap in the name of love, clap in the name of love (clap my hands yeah)
Step in the name of love, step in the name of love (step from side to side)
Groove in the name of love, groove in the name of love (Groove and it's alright)

Some believes in love,
And some people don't
Similar to a story, when it's told
(A thousand years from now we'll be still putting it down my baby)

Some have crossed the finish line and some gave up
It's like moving a mountain
Love can be just that tough yeah.
(A thousand years from now we'll be still putting it down my baby)

Baby girl in other words for ever more
I'll be here (I'll be here)
Cause, my whole life's been full of joy every since
You came here, girl

My whole world goes around,
Because you spin me yeah (spin me)
And every time we're done making love girl
You makes me wanna

Snap in the name of love, snap in the name of love (snap my fingers)
Clap in the name of love, clap in the name of love (clap both my hands)
Step in the name of love, step from side to side (step in the name of love)
Groove in the name of love, groove in the name of love (groove and it's alright)

(Snap in the name of love) (woo)
(Snap in the name of love) (woo)
(Clap in the name of love) (Clap my hands)

Now we gonna play a little game
And this game is for all of those
Who know how to follow the rules to this game, alright?

To do what ever I sing, alright? Come on, here we go

[Repeat: x2]
Step Step Side to side
Round and round, Dip it now

Love slide

So keep on steppin' because
Love's gonna last forever.

Clap in the name of love.
Let's step out, hit the club
D J's rockin' that song for us,
If anybody ask, why we're steppin'
Tell them that, we did it for love.

Shut up,
I don't never want to hear you say that again
Baby I'm not going nowhere
Look at me, you understand me?

Now, what gave you the silly idea that I'm about to leave
Girl who you been listening to? They must be crazy
Look back and see our past and all the **** that we been through
I'll be damned if I'm gon let this bullcrap take me away from you
Cause I vow to give my all and girl I'm a man of my words
And on that word, I'll stand tall
Being without you sounds absurd
So dry your weeping eyes
Cause I'll be here by your side
No need to doubt the sky
I'm in this for the long ride

[Chorus]
I will never leave, no
You don't have to worry
Girl I will be right there for you
I will never leave, no
Baby can't you see
I was born to be with you
I will never leave, no
God put us together
Nothing can take that away
I will never leave you no
Now until forever, be with you the rest of my days

You never have to question the love I have for you
Girl I will put my life on bended knees for you
Ask all my friends, they'll tell you
Your all I talk about
Even when I go to sleep your the only one I dream about
See I'm your picture girl and baby you are my frame
And that's why I know our love will stay the same
So dry your weeping eyes
Girl I'm by your side
Just trust me I'm that guy
I'm in it for the long ride

[Chorus]

Since that the day the doctor took me out of the womb and spanked me
Girl I was born to be with you and the rest is history
Generations and now I'm all grown up and you carry my seed
Now we are flesh and blood
With you I am in love
For the rest of my life
For the rest of my life
We've been blessed with a love that's rare
That's why I'm not going nowhere

[Chorus]

I was meant to be with you

For who I am
I thank my fans so much
Even though some may hate
Still I appreciate
All my friends and family
That kept it real with me

I been around the world and back like what up
East side to west side touring like what up
And even though the price for the house was so much
I still roll with them from the hood like what up
Cause when it comes to being the realest I'm sure 'nough
I'm a straight up industry villain for sure 'nough
And I can't satisfy some a y'all no matter what
And some of y'all cats are so jealous
Said we livin in a cold cold world
Ain't nothin' but fake faces fake people fake friends
Said we living in a cold cold world
Where there ain't nuttin but envy wannabees playa-hatas
Yea I know I need a hug but y'all need a hug too
'cause god gunna judge me the same day he judge you
And even though we have our struggles that's alright
You know we get our folks and find a way to shine

[Chorus]

[Ja Rule]
Sometimes this world can be so cold
When you looking through the windows of the soul
I been looking to see the truth as it unfolds
Cause I been around this globe and back
Enough to know the fact
Who loves me
And who loves me not
We be ****'s so hot
You could put it in red tops
And pump it through every hood, ghetto, and block
Until they heart stops
That's why they fiend for me
And I thank you for every blessing that you giving me lord
And I'm grateful for all my talent and my vocal accords
And all these haters I keep shaking 'em off
Rubbing they face in fame
I'm sorry I changed the game
But its mine and I can't complain
Rule and are Kelly
Been around the world
Putting it on women
Bumping and grinding these *****es
But we always on time when a woman fed up
And that's love
That's why they all **** wit us

[Chorus]

Said my lyrics is my testimony
That's how I live
I had to get rid of a lot of fake homies
Over the years
You see me on TV sometimes
Not how it is
Y'all gotta start learning how to separate me from showbiz
When I'm rolling through your city
Show me love
And ladies when you see a boy
Give me love
And though I'm not conceited (right)
Its just my space sometimes I need it (right)
Said I got so many friends in them area codes
That I hand out them tickets when it comes to my shows
Ja lets break bread together
Pray together
That we grow strong together
Its clear forever
Help each other through the stormy weather
Lets hurt together
Lets cry together
And even if we grow together
Then together we'll make it better

[Chorus]

Said I been around the world
And gets nothing but love
For who I am
I thank my fans so much
Even though some may hate
Still I appreciate
All my friends and family
That kept it real with me

Could this be what heaven sent to me
An angel come to set me free
Love has been a stranger to me
And myself keeps telling me that
This is not supposed to happen brother you've been hurt too many times before
First I tripped, then I slipped, then I fell

I'm like so what I'm drunk
It's the freakin' weekend baby
I'm about to have me some fun

Crystal poppin' in the stretch Navigator
We got food every where
As if the party was catered
We got fellas to my left
Hunnies on my right
We bring em both together we got junkin' all night
Then after the show its the (after party)
And after the party its the (hotel lobby)
And round about 4 you gotta (clear the lobby)
Then head take it to the room and freak somebody

Can I get a beep beep
Runnin' her hands through my 'fro
Bouncin' on 24's
While they say on the radio

Hot and fresh out the kitchen
Mama rollin' that body
Got every man in here wishin'
Sippin' on coke and rum

It's the freakin' weekend baby
I'm about to have me some fun

This is the remix to ignition
Hot and fresh out the kitchen
Mama rollin' that body
Got every man in here wishin'
Sippin' on coke and rum
I'm like so what I'm drunk
It's the freakin' weekend baby
I'm about to have me some fun

Girl we off in this jeep
Foggin' windows up
Blastin' the radio
In the back of my truck
Bouncin' up and down
Stroke it round and round
To the remix
We just thuggin' it out

Like you in my life and I'm so excited so so excited about being with you for
The rest of my life Listen

Looking at all theses hand, damn I use to be a lonely man, could never
Understand, why I had no one to take my hand but then the weather changed
Mother-nature brought the sun my way, now girl your who I am and I have you for
The rest of my days

[Chorus]
How the sun comes up in the early morning time, girl I vowel to be forever
Loving you rain or shine, How the moon takes us on this romantic globe I'll be
Loving you forever more, oh oh yeah

Now I used to think that I would never, have a serious relationship, always
Praying for that one to come along and give me what I miss, but now those
Thoughts are no more, every since you came into my life, it's like heaven
Opened up its doors, showered down on me the perfect wife, oh oh

How the sun comes up in the early morning time girl, I vowel to be forever
Loving you rain or shine, How the moon takes us on this romantic globe I'll be
Loving you forever more, oh oh yeah oh yeah

Baby, now our house, our house, is a home, the car, we own, what's mine is
Yours, the keys to the doors, my family, my family, my friend, my friends, the
Church, we belong together, Heaven drum say, our house is a home the car, we
Own, what's mine is yours the keys to the doors, my family, my family, my
Friend, my friends the church we belong together and it's on...

Close your eyes
Now relax your mind
Now I want you to picture yourself far far away
(Prepare yourself girl cause we bout to take a ride)
And I don't want you to have a care in the world right now
It's just you and me
In this moment? quiet
Listen

Baby take your mind into a zone
Imagine that we all alone
Two ways are off and our friends are gone
Now it's just you and me getting it on
Take my hand and come with me
Let's indulge in fantasies
Cast your cares and worries
While we fall into this ecstasy

[Chorus]
I'm gonna rub your body, so baby just relax
You've been pouring out your loving, so now its time to pour it back
Imagine that

Me kissing your body from feet to head

Imagine that
We don't have to talk
Lay your body here and watch my fingers walk
Take a second and imagine the opportunity
You and me sharing sexual energy
Now girl just mediate on you being in this chair
Then close your eyes and act like we not even here

Got plenty of honeys
Puff puff give now let me hit it once more
Fake *** *****s get out and close my door
Its my house for me to live not yours
If I wanted to I could- on the floors
Through the doors like a western flick the club is crunk
Penny and Chris you know that boys tow up
About 8 or 9 black stallion riding up
Its Mr. Big screaming showdown I'm like what

[Mr. Big]
Now Kelly,
Its not enough room in this town
For you and me so lets get down
I'm sick and tired of you and this down low fight
From contagious all the way to Mrs. Price
You done it now with Ms. Black Asia
I knew something was funny when she stopped paging
House, cars, shopping mall
Man I tell you its a battle call
Like a raging bull
I'm about to charge
Carry, you won't see tomorrow
Its time to put a end to your late night creeps
Now any last words before my pistol speaks...

[R. Kelly]
Mr. Biggs,
Now no disrespect but man I'm tired
Cause all these years its my back you've been riding
We've been in and out of fights on these videos
Now its about time you felt the real rodeo
See I did it back in 98 of September
You took her from me yea right you don't remember
I remember so clearly we were coming from an opera
How clever you were when you slipped her your number
(ooh) I know that makes y'all wanna know
(ooh) Who's really on the down low
You wonder why we're always at it there it is
Sleeves up Mr. Biggs
Cause I'm about to get, wild, wild, west
Sick and tired of your mess
You put me to the test
And now I'm sticking out my chest
So any last words before I draw these cannons
Cause when the smoke clears I'll be the last man standing

Shorty tryin' to bring da drama
But she cannot phase a playa
'Cause this pimp is a moneymaker

Meetings from Shawtown to LA
Yo, I came to get down at this party
I got my eyes on Keesha and Shante'
Rolling it like this track was Reggae

With about a hundred thugs
Get about a thousand bucks
For chicks who wanna roll on dubs

Yo, whose that in the jeep
Whose that off up in the truck
Yo what ya'll doin' tonight
Yo what's off up in that cup

Well, I'm rollin' with ya'll
Shorty where's the alcohol
Now lemme hit that pace
Shorty can we make our day

Here, take a brodda to a pool party
Right off up at Miami
Ten G's for the best bikini
Looking for the biggest booty

She got the crowd goin' crazy
'Cause this track here is so amazing
Yo we with a little life lookin' hazy
Still you R and B cats can't phase me

Well, I'm rollin' with ya'll

Mami in passenger, spilling the champagne
We stop at a red light, she driving me insane
Yo we fiending like the **** was ****

Stop playin' girl the way ya shake a fatty back
So sexy the way you telling daddy that
Turn that a** around and lemme patty that
Got me saying man, I'm tryna marry that

Oh no, they did it again, who?
Rob and Joe they slip with ten, what?
Damuses, wamuses, big Bahamas's
All kind of missis, don't matter ya ma misses

What's love got to do with ****in' there
Everyday a new group of chicks there
We headed to the islands, the games is life
Where the fame is, shorty almost died when we came there

Girl, I know you diggin' the ditty dop
This my world come thru the whole city stop
Looks like ice but actually it's really not
Damos, blandes, no lies around me

In the south bronx where you can find me
Never mind me, that's is how we ball
I'm rollin' with y'all, now tell me shorty where's the alcohol

Heard you speak one time in an interview
Was the sweetest lil' thing I ever heard
(Sweetest lil' thing I heard)
My eyes going down on you like a parachute
I wanna creep wit' you and that's my word
(Creep wit' you and that's my word)

Now I been knowin, mommy, for a while now
(A long time)
And GOD know she's been good to me
(Real good, real good)
But uh, I can't help it when I see you smile
Some thing tells me what I'm doin to her
That you would do to me

So what do I do.........................

What do I do
What do I do
What do I do
Some body tell me what will I gain

What will I lose
What do I do
What do I do
What do I do

Somebody tell me what will I gain
What will I lose
Help me out

Now Proverbs 18 verse 22 says
Standin' by the wife defines a good thing
Lyin' by her side thinkin' of you
I got to get up, go to the toilet
Wash my face, and clear my head
I gotta take you to a broad way show

'Cause I don't wanna go by self
I'm like a kid wit' two ice creams, baby
And I don't want either one to melt
Cause ever since I heard you speak in that interview
It is an awful feelin' if I hurt her
Then some day you gonna hurt me too

What do I do
What do I do
What do I do
Some body tell me
What will I gain
What will I lose

What do I do
What do I do
What do I do
Some body tell me
What will I gain
What will I lose

I heard that
What goes around
Comes back around
And you're gonna read what you saw

Dear mama, you wouldn't believe what I'm goin' through
But still I got my head up just like I promised you
Ever since you left your baby boy's been dealin with
problem after problem, tell me what am I supposed to do
See, I get lost sometimes, don't understand this place
Look in the mirror sometimes and see a troubled face
And then my tears roll down and hit the sink
Then I hold my head up high, I hope the Man upstairs can hear my cry
All these questions deep inside my mind
Like, if Jesus loved me, why'd he leave my side, mama
I'm still tryin to get the answer why
You were young, 45, and you had to die
I'm always tryin' to help people out
And it's them same people tryin' to take food out my mouth

(Fo' real though) It seems like the more money I make
(Fo' real though) The more drama y'all try to create
(Fo' real though) The more I try to move into the positive
(Fo' real though) The more y'all don't wanna let me live

When will you realize that I don't owe you nothin'
Need to get up off your b___ and go get your own somethin'
I'm pullin on my hair to keep from snappin' off
Who's right up in my camp and be yappin' off
Somebody out there please pray what I'm talkin' 'bout
Still young tryin' to figure it out

Heaven, I need a hug
Is there anybody out there willin' to embrace a thug
Feelin' like a change of heart
And all I really need is a sign or a word from God
So shower down on me, wet me with your love
I need you to take me and lift me up, oh yeah

I gave thirteen years of my life to this industry
Hit song or not, I've given all of me
You smile in my face and tell me that you love
But then before you know the truth, you're so quick to judge me
That's alright, go ahead, keep talkin'
Cause, cause I'mma hold my head up high and keep walkin
And reach for the sky, focus on the plan
Rescue the ghetto with this paper and pen
And this is for the homies that we lost
Yo', we cannot forget y'all, so the hats come off
We pour a little liquor out for the memory
I know y'all up there sittin' on chrome in them pearly streets
The street survivors, be careful, stay alive
I'm prayin' for your families, I hope you pray for mine

(Fo' real though) Used to be a time you wished me well
(Fo' real though) It hurts to know you wanna see me fail
(Fo' real though) And don't forget I kept you out of jail
(Fo' real though) Where was my arms when you needed to be held

They turn they backs on you, who was they're believin'
Who said your troubles were only for a season
In church together tryin' to pick up all the pieces
And now you betray me, I bind you in the name of Jesus
somebody please pray on what I'm talkin' 'bout
Still young tryin' to figure it all out

Heaven, I need a hug
Is there anybody out there willin' to embrace a thug
Feelin' like a change of heart
And all I really need is a sign or a word from God
(Please shower down)
So shower down on me, wet me with your love (Yeah)
I need you to take me and lift me up, (Oh...oh...yeah,yeah,yeah)

Man I tell you it's enough to make you wanna give it up
Thank God for my fans 'cause through it all they showed me love
To my sister and two brothers
Tell me why can't we just try to get along with one another
Instead of hurtin' one another, fightin' one another
Man, I pray to God He get my family back together
Let me see what I wanna see, just to blind me
All of these luxuries, wine and dine me
And then you push me out in front to get behind me
Then you set me up by blessin' me to bind me
I'm a grown man with kids now, stakes are higher
Gotta go to church now to avoid the fire
Frankly, y'all to keep it real I'm just tired
Have dreams of bein' dead, but the devil is alive

(Fo' real though) Church folks, you need to stop judgin'
(Fo' real though) Or you will be the first to be judged
(Fo' real though) And women stop dependin' on us men
(Fo' real though) And start dependin' on the Man above, feel me

And as for Robert, here's what I need to do
Get rid of dem' clowns and get myself a whole 'nother crew
Media, do your job
But please just don't make my job so hard
Somebody please pray on what I'm talkin' 'bout
I'm still young tryin' to figure it all out

Heaven, I need a hug
Is there anybody out there willin' to embrace a thug
Feelin' like a change of heart
And all I really need is a sign or a word from God
So shower down on me (Shower down on me now), wet me with your love
I need you to take me (please) and lift me up, yeah, yeah,
(Said I'm callin' on heaven)

Heaven, I need a hug
Is there anybody out there willin' to embrace a thug
(Embrace me)
Feelin' like a change of heart
And all I really need is a sign or a word from God
So shower down on me, wet me with your love
I need you to take me and lift me up (Lift me up), yeah,yeah,(Heaven I need)

I am a mountain,
I am a tall tree, oh
I am a swift wind
Sweeping the country

I am a river,
Down in the valley, oh
I am a vision
And I can see clearly

If anybody asks you who I am, just stand up tall, look 'em in the face and say

I'm that star up in the sky
I'm that mountain peak up high
Hey I made it, hmm
I'm the worlds greatest

I'm that little bit of hope
When my back's against the ropes
I can feel it, hmm
I'm the worlds greatest

I am a giant
I am an Eagle oh
I am a lion
Down in the jungle
I am a marching band
I am the people oh
I am a helping hand
I am a hero

If anybody asks you who I am, just stand up tall look 'em in the face and say

I'm that star up in the sky
I'm that mountain peak up high
Hey I made it, hmm
I'm the worlds greatest

I'm that little bit of hope
When my back's against the ropes
I can feel it, hmm
I'm the worlds greatest

In the ring of life,
I'll reign in love (I will reign)
And the world will notice a king (oh, yeah)
When all is darkness,
I'll shine a light (shine a light)
And the mirrors of sucesss reflect in me (Me)

I'm that star up in the sky
I'm that mountain peak up high
Hey I made it
I'm the worlds greatest

I'm that little bit of hope
When my back's against the ropes
I can feel it
I'm the worlds greatest

I'm that star up in the sky
I'm that mountain peak up high
Hey I made it
I'm the worlds greatest

I'm that little bit of hope
When my back's against the ropes
I can feel it
I'm the worlds greatest

I'm that star up in the sky
I'm that mountain peak up high
Hey I made it
I'm the worlds greatest

I'm that little bit of hope
When my back's against the ropes
I can feel it
I'm the worlds greatest

(He's the greatest) Can you feel it?
(Can you feel it?)He's the greatest
(He's the greatest)Can you feel it?
(Can you feel it?)I saw the light
(He's the greatest)At the end of the tunnel
(Can you feel it?)Believe in a pot of gold
(He's the greatest)At the end of a rainbow

Mansions, hill and acres
Women, drinks and caterers
I would toast until the break of dawn
Swimming pools and strippers
Conversation six figures
Never crossed my mind to call home.

[Chorus]
There's a note on the bathroom mirror
Telling me that you've had enough.

It took you leaving me
For my blind eyes to see that you mean.

[Repeat: x8]
Far more

Than this planet to me
Than the air I breath
From here to overseas
Girl you're all I need
Than the mountains and trees
You mean more than the birds and the bees
Honey take it from me
You are all I need

Hanging out with friends
Never calling to check in
Neglecting you in every way
Taking the home front for granted
What was straight, is now slanted
And I don't know what to do about this letter.

[Chorus]

It took you leaving me
For my blind eyes to see that you mean.

[Repeat: x8]
Far More

More than this planet to me
More than the air I breath
From here to overseas
Girl you're all I need
Than the mountains and trees
You mean more than the birds and the bees
Honey take it from me
You are all I need

[Repeat: x8]
Far more

Ever since you've been gone
I realize girl just what it is I had at home
Oh Baby, you mean far more
Than this planet to me
Than this air I breath
Nothing can compare to your love for me.
To your love for me
To your love for me
To your love for me

Can you hear the sounds of the love angels calling us
Sweet violins,and harps playing
Then suddenly there's this kiss of trust
Damper than the morning dew,tonight has chosen me and you
And girl I vow to make everyone of your fantasies come true

I can here the horns sounding,
Bells ringing a full orchestra
And the choir singing
The oceans calm and the rivers flowing
It feels so good, keep on going.

Rain drops keep fallin' on our heads,as we make love
We won't stop the rain keeps fallin' down on both of us.
Rain drops keep fallin' on our heads, as we make love
We won't stop the rain keeps fallin' down on both of us.

Can you see the flowers blooming,slowly as the seasons change,
The gift of joy is found in when I softly here you call my name
Rose pedals, and all these oils, surrounded by a hundred candles,
The eagle delivers a letter, that says this night will last forever.

Damper than the morning dew,the night has chosen me and you
And girl I promise to make everyone of your fantasies come tru

I can here the horns sounding, bells ringing a full orchestra
And the choir singing.the oceans calm and the rivers flowing
Don't you stop, just keep on going.

Rain drops keep fallin' on our heads,as we make love
We won't stop the rain keeps fallin' down on both of us.
Rain drops keep fallin' on our heads, as we make love
We won't stop the rain keeps fallin' down on both of us.

Through all the trees, the smooth wind blows,then suddenly a rainbow
An ocean filled with white sail boats and huge waterfalls that overflow
? and fairy tales
?
And imagine far away from here,
Where the land cry's joyful tears,

[Repeat: x2]
Rain drops keep fallin' on our heads,as we make love
We won't stop the rain keeps fallin' down on both of us.
Rain drops keep fallin' on our heads,as we make love
We won't stop the rain keeps fallin' down on both of us.
