about

This is me going to R&B school with a bunch of dudes who have "been to the fair and seen the bear" so to speak. I can't begin to describe what I learned. Click on each track for more info. Or just get the music and listen...that's the real deal.

Track Name: Love In A Dangerous World
We don’t know what tomorrow may bring for us - cuz it changed so fast
Take each moment and live it like it’s your last
Live it right here, right now

Cuz all I wanna do, all I wanna do is be close to you

CHORUS:
You give me shelter, you give me peace
All of my trouble in my soul’s released
And I’ll always be your girl
You give me love in a dangerous world

All of the cryin’, all of the pain
All seem to vanish when you call my name
And I’ll always be your girl
You give me love in a dangerous world

I don’t care what tomorrow may bring for us - just as long as you’re here
Every moment I need to feel you near
Want you right here, right now

Cuz all I wanna do, all I wanna do is be close to you

CHORUS: (1/2)
You give me shelter, you give me peace
All of my trouble in my soul’s released
And I’ll always be your girl
You give me love in a dangerous world

Cuz all I wanna do, all I wanna do is be close to you

CHORUS:
You give me shelter, you give me peace
All of my trouble in my soul’s released
And I’ll always be your girl
You give me love in a dangerous world

All of the cryin’, all of the pain
All seem to vanish when you call my name
And I’ll always be your girl
You give me love in a dangerous world
Track Name: Not Me Without You
Who is this woman standing before me - I know that face I see in the glass
She looks familiar but so very strange
I knew her long ago – a lonely soul with an aching heart
But now she’s back again – ever since we’ve been apart

It’s true – so true - It’s not me without you

My eyes keep searching for somebody else
My lips are moving but I cannot hear
My arms are reaching but no one is there
There’s only emptiness – a tenderness I cannot hold
Here comes the storm and then an evil wind – an icy cold

It’s true – so true - It’s not me without you
It’s true – so true - It’s not me without you

So sure of who I am – I’d stand and fall and rise again
But I’m not who I used to be – it doesn’t take a fool to see

It’s true – so true - It’s not me without you
It’s true – so true - It’s not me without you

Right here and now all on my own – am I strong enough to carry on
This hurricane I can’t control, it’s a cold hard wind blowing through my soul
And I think I’m entitled to an explanation to try to heal this separation
I put my pride up on the shelf cuz I’m just not me with anyone else

It’s true – so true - It’s not me without you
It’s true – so true - It’s not me without you

I yearn to fill this empty space – to feel your touch, to see your face
To hear your beating heart again – your tender kiss, it’s you I miss
What did I not do, what did I say – to make you turn and run away
Turn back the clock to how it was – just because, just because

It’s true – so true - It’s not me without you
It’s true – so true - It’s not me without you
It’s true – so true - It’s not me without you
It’s true – so true - It’s not me without you
Track Name: Miss You Bad Tonight
Tonight I’m climbing the wall
Staring at the ceiling waiting on your call
There ain’t a thing I can do
To keep myself from crying ‘cuz I’m missing you

Wondering where you are – and why it's got to be so far
Away from me – I’m in misery
And there ain’t no relief in sight
So I’ll just pray for morning light
Cuz I miss you bad tonight

Loneliness knows no shame
I’m sick of wiping lipstick off your picture frame
Love’s supposed to be blind
But if I don’t see you soon I’m gonna lose my mind

Ever since you left, I just ain’t been myself
I need you here to make this madness disappear
I’ve been holding on with all my might
But right now I’m losing that fight
Cuz I miss you bad tonight

Days go on and I stay strong
But when you’re gone the nights are so long

And honey I don’t know – if I can take much more
Sleepin’ all alone – Lord, it chills me to the bone
Darling it just ain’t right
I need you holding me tight
Cuz I miss you bad tonight
Track Name: Not Supposed To Love You
I’ve been taking the long way home
Hoping it will clear my mind
Baby ever since you came along
I’ve been praying for a sign from above
‘Cause you feel like heaven
But you’re not the one I promised to love

CHORUS:
I’m not supposed to love you, baby, but I love you
Now tell me what am I gonna do
I got a burning deep inside and nothing can cool me but you
I’m not supposed to need you, baby, but I need you
So bad that I can’t sleep at night
It’s supposed to be wrong
But how am I supposed to fight
Something that feels so right
Baby you feel so right

There’s somebody at home a-waitin’
Lovin’ me the best he can
But he’s never moved me the way you move me
With nothing but the touch of your hand
I’ve tried to resist this feeling
But this longing for you won’t be denied

CHORUS

You found your way into a place inside where no one’s ever been
Once a blind man sees the light
How can he ever live in darkness again?

CHORUS
Track Name: Sugar Man
I need your help now baby
I got some lumps in my gravy
I was thinking you and me could maybe stir it up awhile
Why don’t you come on over
Let me put my head on your shoulder
I’m starting to smolder and I need you to stoke my fire

CHORUS:
I’m cold, honey - warm me up
I know you can fill my lovin’ cup
Now don’t tell me you got somethin’ better planned
Come on and be my sugar man

I need some of your sweetness
Come take advantage of my weakness
For the taste of your sweet kiss, I’d get down on my knees
I got plenty of tools in my kitchen
But only you can scratch where I’m itchin’
I’m busting out of my stitchin’ honey, won’t you help me please

CHORUS

I’ll get the skillet hot - you stir what’s in the pot
Nice and easy ‘til its good and greasy then we
Add the sugar ‘til it tastes just right
Don’t stop stirring, baby – this could take all night

CHORUS
Track Name: Shouldn't We Be In Love
I love you, you love me too
Shouldn’t we be in love
We’re the best of friends, together you and I make sense
Shouldn’t we be in love

Shouldn’t my world revolve around you
Shouldn’t your kisses make me weak
Shouldn’t my dreams feel like they’ve come true
Shouldn’t we be all I need

I love you, you love me too
Shouldn’t we be in love
Shouldn’t we be in love

I know into every love affair some rain must fall
What do you do if you fall out of love for no reason at all
Can you use sheer will to make it good
Because that’s how you know it should be
Baby we should be in love

With this ring we vowed to be each others’ everything
Shouldn’t we be in love
You and I’ve spent all this time just trying to survive
Shouldn’t we be in love

Shouldn’t I want to come home to you
Shouldn’t you miss me when I’m gone
Shouldn’t you be the one I run to
When my heart can’t find its song

Shouldn’t we never give up on love
Shouldn’t we try with all our might
But if you and I are wrong, love
Shouldn’t we go find what’s right

I love you, baby I know you love me too
Shouldn’t we be in love
Shouldn’t we be in love
Track Name: Chains
Your arms are warm but they make me feel
As if they’re made of cold, cold steel
A simple kiss like a turning key
A little click and the lock’s on me

Can’t move my arms, can’t lift my hands
I won’t admit to where I am – but I know baby
I’m in chains, I’m in chains

I pretend I can always leave
Free to go whenever I please
But then the sound of my desperate calls
Echo off these dungeon walls

I’ve crossed the line from mad to sane
A thousand times and back again
I love you baby
I’m in chains, I’m in chains
I’m in chains, I’m in chains

Should have known passing through the gate
That once inside I could not escape
I never thought this could happen to me
Never thought this is where I’d be

But baby, baby – baby, look at me
I said baby, baby, look at me
I’m in chains, I’m in chains
Track Name: There's Just Rain
I don’t know you girl, but I know that man you’re talking to
I don’t know what he just said but you can bet your life that it ain’t true
I’ve played his game before, and honey I’m not the first
You may be a fine drink of water but nothin’s gonna quench his thirst

CHORUS:
Sister, take it from me
All you’ll get is what you see
Tonight he’ll look into your eyes
But he’ll be gone before sunrise
So get it while the getting’s good
But make sure one thing’s understood
There ain’t no gold at the end of that rainbow
There’s just rain

Looks so fine, talks so sweet, eyes that hypnotize
But don’t let it fool you, girl, he’s the devil in disguise
I thought I could tame him if I just loved him enough
But trying to shine that diamond left me nothing but rough

CHORUS

That storm’s gone whipping much through stronger hearts than mine
Leaving nothing but destruction in its path every time
If you don’t believe me ask any one of them
The question isn’t if he’ll break your heart, but when

So go ahead and do that dance if you think you really wanna
Just know that if he gets a chance to hurt you, girl he’s gonna
My heart’s already broken it’s too late to save myself
But I’ll be damned if I’ll sit by and watch him do it to someone else

CH0RUS
Track Name: Love Letters
Love letters straight from your heart
Keep us so near while apart
I'm not alone in the night
When I can have all the love you write

I memorize every line
And I kiss the name that you sign
And, darling, then I read again right from the start
Love letters straight from your heart
Track Name: Baby Love
There is no other to compare to you
You got me blindly givin’ all that I have to you
You’ve shown me feelings that I – I’d never find
But those feelings ain’t complete when you’re not here all the time

Oh baby love
early in the mornin’
You come creepin’ in my mind, oh baby love
Oh baby love
I wake up with a yearnin’
Burnin’ for your touch – oh baby love

You give me reasons to be a fool for you
But I don’t care about foolish pride when it’s concernin’ you
I’ll be your slave, yes I will, give me your command
You can order me to stay around you all I can

CHORUS

All I do is think about you baby love
All I do is think about you baby love
I want your love, I need your love, I want your love come on

There is no other to compare to you
You got me blindly, blindly, blindly givin’ all I have to you
Feelings, feelings I’d never find
But those feelings ain’t complete when you’re not here all the time

CHORUS
Track Name: (When You Call Me) Lover
I know… I’m no ordinary girl
I’ve seen men fall at my feet – and offer me the world
When I walk into a room I know every man can see
I’m not the kind who surrenders easily
Strong as I am, all you have to do is speak
And my knees get weak

CHORUS:
When you call me lover, lover, lover
I start to burn and I can barely stand
There is no other – oh lover
You’ve got me at your command
With just a wave of your hand
When you call me lover

One word… and I lose all my control
You take possession of my body and my soul
I’m left defenseless as you cast your spell on me
But I don’t want to be set free

CHORUS

And you take me in your arms
I feel my passion rise
From so deep down inside
I come alive

CHORUS
