Track Name: The Groove
Back against the wall, I see you walk in/I peep your smile, but where is your man/So I walk on by, I know my game/The fates may bring a second chance/I walk up to the bar/Gonna get me a drink/What’s goin’ through your mind/Tell you what I think/I know that you been lookin’ at me ‘cause I’ve been lookin’ at you/So tell me what you wanna do/We can make believe it’s just me and you/And we’re just feelin’ the groove (2x)/I see you on the floor doin’ your thang/Your eyes meet mine, so I do the same/Girl you got some moves there’s no denyin’/There’s just one thing that you’re missin’/I walk up to the bar/Gonna get you a drink/What’s goin’ through your mind/Tell you what I think/I know that you been lookin’ at me ‘cause I’ve been lookin’ at you/So tell me what you wanna do/We can make believe it’s just me and you/And we’re just feelin’ the groove (2x)/Baby don’t be scared, I ain’t gonna bite/Just take my hand and move with me/Baby groove with me tonight/I hope that you’re prepared just sit back and enjoy the ride/Now move with me baby groove with tonight/I walk up to the bar/Gonna get us a drink/What’s goin’ through your mind/Tell you what I think/I know that you been lookin’ at me ‘cause I’ve been lookin’ at you/So tell me what you wanna do/We can make believe it’s just me and you/And we’re just feelin’ the groove
Track Name: Think And Feel
La la la la la la la la la la la la/Baby there is something/About you that makes me wanna smile/Could it be your body/You’re so fine you could drive a blind man wild/What we got in common/It ain’t much but that is why I like you/And you ain’t gotta worry/I’m right here baby I ain’t gon’ leave/What do you think/What do you feel/When I step into the room/Don’t hesitate/To taste and see/What our love could truly be/La la la la la la la la la la la la/Now I be thinkin’ ‘bout cha/ every other second of the day/I get this crazy feelin’/Every single time I hear your name/I’d rather be homeless in the street searching for something to eat/Than living my life rich and all alone/’Cause I’m having dreams of you and me/Spending all eternity/Together till the end of time as one/What do you think/What do you feel/When I step into the room/Don’t hesitate/To taste and see/What our love could truly be/What do I think/What do I feel/When you step into the room/I want to thank God for you/And our love that’s pure and true/Our love is something real/I’m trying to conceal/Just how I think and feel/About love/About you/What do you think/What do you feel/When I step into the room/Don’t hesitate/To taste and see/What our love could truly be/What do I think/What do I feel/When you step into the room/I want to thank God for you/And our love that’s pure and true/’Cause I’m lost without a clue/Unless I’m here lovin’ you
Track Name: Stay
I can’t concentrate more than fifteen minutes at a time/But with you here with me, time don’t exist in my mind/I don’t get no sleep lately, I can’t make it through the night/But with you next to me, I don’t’ get three hours I get nine/I’m so obsessed with you and with the way you make me feel/I must confess the truth, this is surreal/So don’t you take your love away from me/Don’t you take your love away/’Cause if you take your love away from me/Ain’t no use in livin’/Why won’t you stay/I have apologized to all my friends and family/’Cause I can’t stop talkin’ ‘bout your perfect personality/You plague my every dream throughout the night and through the day/I’ve lost all sanity, my life will never be the same/ I’m so obsessed with you and with the way you make me feel/I must confess the truth, this is surreal/Don’t you take your love away from me/Don’t you take your love away/’Cause if you take your love away from me/Ain’t no use in livin’/Why won’t you stay/There’s only one explanation how I get this way/Oh it’s your lovin’, your love/I’m tryin’ to figure out what it is you see in me/See I know that I’m lucky for you to think of me/You say that you love me, you say that you love me/Baby but you never seem to stay/Don’t you take your love away from me/Don’t you take your love away/’Cause if you take your love away from me/Ain’t no use in livin’/Why won’t you stay
Track Name: What About Me
Baby when you call my name/You don’t worry ‘bout a thing/’Cause you know I’ll be there to ease the pain/And baby it don’t make no sense/Or is it a coincidence/That for me you never do the same/And it don’t seem fair/Am I the only one who cares?/I’ve offered you everything you want/I’ve given you everything you need/But there’s never enough for you it seems/And unrequited love ain’t enough for me/So tell me why can’t you see/That love’s a two-way street/So what about me/Just five days ago/I got home from bein’ on the road/So I gave you a call just to let you know/It had been two weeks since I saw your lovely face/I was feenin’ for your touch and your warm embrace/But you weren’t around/No you were nowhere to be found/And it don’t seem fair/Am I the only one who cares?/I’ve offered you everything you want/I’ve given you everything you need/But there’s never enough for you it seems/And unrequited love ain’t enough for me/So tell me why can’t you see/That love’s a two-way street/So what about me/And it don’t seem fair/Am I the only one who cares?/I’ve offered you everything you want/I’ve given you everything you need/But there’s never enough for you it seems/And unrequited love ain’t enough for me/So tell me why can’t you see/That love’s a two-way street/So what about me
Track Name: You Thrill Me
My life is cloudy but you always bring out the sun when you are near/I rarely see the truth but when I’m looking at you it’s all too clear/That my life is incomplete/Unless you are here with me/Everyday is so brand new/With your love there’s nothing I could not do/’Cause you thrill me/And you fill me/Take me up till I can’t come down/So just hold me/Complete know me/You thrill me every time you’re around/My heart it was asleep until you breathed into me and set me free/From bondage and these chains of hurt and love-caused pain and my insecurity/Now my life is so complete now that you are here with me/All my ways now will I change/With you’re love nothing will ever be the same/’Cause you thrill me/And you fill me/Take me up till I can’t come down/So just hold me/Complete know me/You thrill me every time you’re around/Now my life is so complete now that you are here with me/All my ways now will I change/With you’re love nothing will ever be the same/’Cause you thrill me/And you fill me/Take me up till I can’t come down/So just hold me/Complete know me/You thrill me every time you’re around
Track Name: The Dedication
Are you okay little girl/’Cause I can see pain in your eyes/But don’t be afraid of the world/’Cause I am here right by your side/Ready to give all I am/All of my life, my love, all my trust/’Cause I am prepared to sacrifice/Everything to show you how much/I love you/I love you/Your beautiful face, your tender touch/Undying smile, intriguing mind/Your warm embrace/I need so much/How it makes chills run down my spine/I cry tears of happiness/When I realize how much I’m blessed/To have a friend who makes me whole/The missing peace to my soul/I need you/I need you/So take my hand if you please/I’ll be the man to accompany/You on your journey of life/Journey to paradise/So this is my vow I swear/To meet all of your needs/To keep you in all my prayers/Think of you before I think of me/So I dedicate/Every line, every word/Everything I own/Everything just to show/That I love you/And I need you
Track Name: Love Yourself
Let me tell you a story/About a little girl/Grew up without a daddy/No protection from the world/Never made the right choices/’Bout the men in her life/They would tell her that she’s worthless/That she wasn’t worth a dime/She looked in the mirror everyday and every night/Hated what she saw and so she tried to take her life/But I say love yourself/’Cause if you don’t, who else/will treat you like you’re a lady/Care for you like a newborn baby/Give you all the finer things in life/Here’s my advice/Love yourself/Love yourself/Jenny had a step-father/A respectable man/When he married her mother/Seemed like a perfect ten/But behind closed doors/Daddy drank too much/He crossed the line with his daughter/Driven by his lust/She could never trust a man no matter how hard she tried/She could never love because she hated herself inside/But I say love yourself/’Cause if you don’t, who else/will treat you like you’re a lady/Care for you like a newborn baby/Give you all the finer things in life/Here’s my advice/Love yourself/Love yourself/So hold on little girl/Don’t let ‘em take your pride/’Cause you’re gonna make it/So just believe inside/That you’re a queen, you’re everything you wanna be and more/Just say I’m a woman, I am beautiful, I love myself/Say I’m a woman, I am beautiful, I love myself (3x)
Track Name: Infatuation
It’s three o’ clock in the mornin’ in my bed/Watchin’ tv tryin’ to clear my head/I got my pen and my paper by my side/Writin’ songs by tv light/I close my eyes and I try to fall asleep/But fade pictures of you keep haunting me/Girl just the though of your kiss and your caress/Is keeping me from getting rest/Infatuated with you/And all the things that you do/Girl just the thought of your smile/I’m mesmerized for more than a while/It’s a lifetime of appreciation/For infatuation/When I am driving down I-285/You are the only thing that goes through my mind/Every license plate seems to spell your name/I must be goin’ insane/But I can’t help it, it seems you’re all I love/An angel without wings sent from above/Not just your beauty but baby girl your mind/No doubt you’re one of a kind/ Infatuated with you/And all the things that you do/Girl just the thought of your smile/I’m mesmerized for more than a while/It’s a lifetime of appreciation/For infatuation (2x)
Track Name: Midnight Star
How long had it been/Much longer than I wanted/I journeyed to the end/To discover just what I was searching for/A perfect reason to explore/A way to ease my mind/A remedy defined/Defined in you/In you I found the truth/The truth you hold dearly/Reluctant to give me/I wanna show you love/Love that’s pure and true/I’m down here on my knees/Reaching out to you/Saying baby please/You know that you want to/Be a shining star/To lead me home to you/’Cause I am lost at sea/So be my midnight star/You tossed my heart aside/I lost all sense of pride/But in my solitude/I discovered what we had was real and true/Something I never wanted to lose/And now I’m lost without a clue/Abandoned in the thought of you/I close my eyes/take a deep breath and sigh/In my mind I must conspire/How to reach my hearts desire/I wanna show you love/Love that’s pure and true/I’m down here on my knees/Reaching out to you/Saying baby please/You know that you want to/Be a shining star/To lead me home to you/’Cause I am lost at sea/So be my midnight star/I remember tears of laughter/Turned to bitter times asunder/And I must confess and I must express/That I digress to bask in sadness (2x)/I know we had true love/Love that’s pure and true/I got down on my knees/My arms outstretched to you/I thought you’d take my hand/And show me life anew/But now I understand/You’d rather one than two/I just want you to know/I gave you all of me/But that was long ago/A past of which I’m free/Because I know you’ll never be/My midnight star
Track Name: Again
Over and over and over I’ve tried/To ignore these feelings that I feel inside/But they don’t ever want to leave/They don’t go they just stay/Someone tell me what I gotta do/To make this go away/Every time that I’m chillin’ and you come around/My heart is defenseless until you leave town/You put a spell on me I’m so weak something’s wrong/These feeling so familiar and strong/I’m fallin’/In love again/Over and over and over again/My heart’s beating faster my head is spinnin’/I don’t know what to say when we meet face to face/I wish you understood so that you could relate/’Cause I’m trying to convey my innermost feelings/I’m trying to show you that I am so wiling to/Take a leap of faith, to explore, take a chance/If you looked past me once please take a second glance/I’m fallin’/In love again/Search in your soul/And ask yourself are you whole/’Cause you are the missing piece/To life and love eternally/ I’m fallin’/In love again (3x)

Track Name: Paradise ft. Liz Robinson
Come and listen everybody/We don’t have much time to play around/See the things we do in life keep us bound/If you wanna break free/From all the misery you face/Keep one foot in front of the other/Keep a steady pace/When you feel like you can’t/There’s something to understand/When you wake up in the morning to the sunlight/And you’re smilin’ at the moon at night/It doesn’t matter if you live or die/’Cause your best friend or your lover’s right by your side/When you’ve achieved what you want in life/And you didn’t have to cheat or lie/That’s paradise, that’s paradise/When you’re living without fear that’s paradise/This is not a story/This is just a fact life/You gotta find a way/To cope with all the pain and strife/To all my sisters, brothers, mothers, fathers/Friends and family everywhere/There is healing in God’s love/There’s nothing He can’t bare/When you feel like you can’t/There’s something to understand/When you wake up in the morning to the sunlight/And you’re smilin’ at the moon at night/It doesn’t matter if you live or die/’Cause your best friend or your lover’s right by your side/When you’ve achieved what you want in life/And you didn’t have to cheat or lie/That’s paradise that’s paradise/When you’re living without fear that’s paradise/Don’t let your troubles hold you down/You can turn your life around/There will be a brighter day/Let hope pave the way/In spite of your circumstance/Even you deserve a chance/Patiently/You will see/In due time/You’ll be free/When you wake up in the morning to the sunlight/And you’re smilin’ at the moon at night/It doesn’t matter if you live or die/’Cause your best friend or your lover’s right by your side/When you achieved what you want in life/And you didn’t have to cheat or lie/That’s paradise that’s paradise/When you’re living without fear that’s paradise (2x)
