Everybody Wants To Feel Like You

I wake up to a clock thats ringing
Birds are singing on my telephone line
I work all day and I chase my woman
Why dont she chase me sometime?
Everybody wants to be wanted
I mean I aint no scarecrow cop
I dont need no transalazation
I dont need no diddiley bop
Next time tell me that you want me
Put your little foot inside of my shoe
Next time tell me that you need me
Everybody wants to feel like you
I used to love you so hard in the morning
Id make you stutter and roll your eyes
I put your mind on a brief vacation
To the land of the lost surprise
You got a heart that beats like mine love
You got a bell that rings so true
I get this feeling that I got to tiptoe
Round every little thing you do.

Act Like You Know

Uh
Big Will and Tra-Knox
Yo yo yo yo jump
When I tell you make your way up to the front
Addicted to the way I kick it I know what you want
The don jiggy catering to what your feeling
Pack it to the floor up to the ceiling
Shake
What ya momma gave you baby don't let nothin' break
Yo watch cause we don't care how much time it's gonna take
Dance floor packed and it's lookin' like a lake
It's obduction here's your instructions
Slide
Get up off that wall girl stop tryin' to hide
Trackin' afrodesiac won't be denied
Chill with that cigarette take it outside
Messin' with my vibe
I don't like that
Bounce
I'm a press your player when it counts
Party like a lamb and a wolf about to pounce
The don jiggy catering to what you're feeling
Pack it to the floor up to the ceiling

Bring it on the nothing
Ain't no time for fun things (come on)
Just let it flow (jump on)
Act like you know
The only floor is jumpin'
Ooh these girls are somethin' (come on)
Just let it flow (jump on)
Act like you know

I-I-I-I called Jazzy Jeff on the phone
I said

For me, its like go ahead and eat. Live your life. I mean, I've just seen so much death, you know, as of late, being in my 40s, of people getting sick or, you know, whatever, that I just feel like, you know what? You never know with life. Eat. Enjoy yourself. Just try to be healthy and, you know, and watch it.

How Did You Know

VERSE 1
I remember so well
The day that you came into my life
You asked for my name
You had the most beautiful smile

VERSE 2
My life started to change
I'd wake up each day feeling alright
With you right by my side
Makes me feel things will work out just fine
[ Lyrics from: http: //www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/g/gary_valenciano/how _did_you_know.html ]
CHORUS
How did you know
I needed someone like you in my life
That there was an empty space in my heart
You came at the right time in my life

VERSE 3
I'll never forget
How you brought the sun to shine in my life
And took all the worries and fears that I had
I guess what I'm really trying to say
It's not everyday that someone like you comes my way
No words can express how much I love you

Repeat Chorus & then VERSE 3

You Know What Theyre Writing About

You know what theyre writing about
Baby you know what theyre writing about
Its a thing called love down through the ages
Makes you wanna cry sometimes
Makes you feel like you wanna lay down and die sometimes
Makes you high sometimes
But when you really get in it lifts you right up
Aint it a wonderful game
Aint it a marvellous game
And when theres no more words to say about love I go
Meet me down, meet me down,
Meet me down by the river
Meet me down by the water
Meet me down by the water
Meet me down by the pylons
Meet me down by the pylons
Meet me down by the pylons
Meet me down by the pylons
Meet me, meet me, I want you to meet me - are you there
And know, know, know, know
I want you to meet me - are you there
I want you to meet me - are you there
And know, know, know, know, know
I want you to meet me

You Don't Mean A Thing To Me!

'You don't mean a thing to me! '

Is that the message you want me to receive?
But each time you chance to see me publicly...
Your eyes begin to dance.
And that smile you try to hide from me.

'You don't mean a thing to me! '

You act that way in a crowd on the streets.
And when I pretend you are not there,
I 'feel' you secretly taking a peek!

'You don't mean a thing to me! '

You may say that to yourself frequently.
But each time my phone rings,
And I am at home
You hang up to leave me,
Listening to a dial tone!

'You don't mean a thing to me! '

Who are you wishing to convince?
Is this what you want me to believe?
Then why when my birthday comes around...
You send me a card signed...
'It's me, anonymous.
I am 'back' in town! '

'You don't mean a thing to me! '

Who are you really trying to fool?
Me, your friends or family?

I am told by others,
You actually ask about me.
And they tell me you act jealously,
When I'm with someone else...
Having fun and being carefree!

'You don't mean a thing to me! '

Is that the message you want me to receive.
But each time you chance to see me publicly...
Your eyes begin to dance.
And that smile you try to hide from me.

If what you show is not a true feeling at all,
Why even bother to sometimes call?

'You don't mean a thing to me! '

When that time comes...
And you find me in your heart,
The only one left...
You have not chased away,
From the start.
I will not be stunned,
Not one bit.
To discover you admitting...
You have a love for me that has been sitting.

But unlike you...
From the very beginning,
I'm not fearing to be near...
So you can hear these words clear,
~It's me, I love you.~

'You don't even know me! '

~I know.
But something tells me,
I will.~

Like You Do

Kelly price f/ method man
[method man]
Hey love, hey love
Hey love, whoo, hmm-hmm-hmm
Yo hey love youre the girl that I adore
Every time I go on tour
I want you more and more
Ma I am yours, mi amor
My ghetto zsa zsa gabor
Dont be snitching to the law
Or ever give up my draws
Youre fly robin fly
That apple of my eye
Crooked eye this is what it sounds like when thugs cry
Baby youre like the silent kind
That can tell a good joke, my funny valentine
Roll an l and still smoke it at the same time
Blow your spine I aint got to ask whose - is this
You know its mine forever
Stop the regrets and baby lets get it together
Taking these vows for worst or better
And if so I got you
Holding you down like your pops do
You were the pants Ill were the crown
Aint nobody gon love you this way
And aint nobody gon f- like jolly j
[kelly]
I had enough of love
Was tired of the lying and the game
I told myself that men were all the same
Then suddenly my world began to change
Cause thats when I found you
Aint nobody
Loving me like you do baby
Cant nobody
Make me feel the way Im feeling
Aint nobody
Loving me like you do baby
No one for me like you baby
Now I can smile again baby
Cause lonely days are gone since you are here
Erase the pain and changed the way I feel
Now I believe that love can be for real
I pray that you never leave
Aint nobody
Loving me like you do baby
Cant nobody
Make me feel the way Im feeling
Aint nobody
Loving me like you do baby
No one for me like you baby
Dont mean to brag
But its the things you do
Dont mean to talk
But its the way you love me
Feels like its heaven when Im here with you
The way you love me makes me happy
[method man]
Yo now aint no woman like the one I got
She floss hot to trot keep my manhood rock
Real deal when she give me something I can feel
And still jumpin out the bed to cook a meal
For her boo, we share like sonny and cher
I got you babe and Ill be there
You aint got to have a care in the world
The scenario when boy meets girl
Ill give you dough to fix your curl
The birds and the bees, the flowers and the trees
Me and you bucking naked all out the sheets
All I wanna do is make ya happy
Just ask me
Ill give you the world if I can fit it through the door
Im like the love boat all aboard
Docking in your seashore I give it to you raw like
Voulevo, cuse, aver ma
Excusame, quet quet menagetois
Aint nobody
Loving me like you do baby
Cant nobody
Make me feel the way Im feeling
Aint nobody
Loving me like you do baby
No one for me like you baby

I Was in the Top of the World

Strange this world we are living
It's so strange
In a moment you feel like you are in the top of the world
Living the prefect life
With the prefect family and having the perfect friends
Every thing is going right
Nothing is wrong
Smile's and laugh's is all I can hear
And happiness is all I know
I can't even ask for more

In another second I feel like am in the bottom of the world
Every thing goes wrong
Nothing seems right
I ask my self what went wrong
I tell people' I was in the top of the world; I swear I was in the top of the world'
But no one can believes that lie :)

Do You Know

All you seem to do want to do
Is break my heart
Seems to me
Were a lot better off apart
Time was when you took
A pride in puttin me down
Well Ive some news for you
Thats gonna turn ya around
I got no time for no crazy lady
And the games you wanna play
cause a love like mines
Gonna take some time
You cant save it for a rainy day
Well, l do you know
Do you know
Do you know what
Im trying to say
Loves not a game
Its never the same
You gotta live your love
From day to day
Lonely days are long and
Sad nights are so black
Then I get right down thinkin
Maybe I could take you back
Till at mornin light
A new face appears at my door
As a kinda reminder that
I aint seein you no more

Do You Know the Power That You Have?

Just a glance from the corner, the wink of an eye
an innocent brush as you try to squeeze by,
The smell of your hair and the sound of your sigh,

Do you know the power that you have?

A naive young man, in a nasty street fight
defending her honor, not wrong and not right
a possible death in the yellow street light.

Do you know the power that you have?

A child growing up is her fathers' true pride
always honest and loving, with nothing to hide.
Responsible still, for his feelings inside.

Do you know the power that you have?

From a lifetime of learning you now have to teach,
to the young and upcoming, success is their reach.
Dividing the portions of knowledge to each

Do you know the power that you have?

And now at the end, you lay there alone
no motion, no heart beat, no need for a home
drawing tears from the eyes of the loved ones that roam

Did you ever know the power that you had

Like You Do

Well Ive seen women who cross their legs
Before they sit down to the table
And Ive seen women who look to the sky
Screamin lord I believe in the bible
And Ive seen hookers dancin through times square
With their heads held up so high
But Ive never seen a woman
Who makes me feel
Woah, like you do
Well Ive seen couples holdin hands
With that glazy look in their eyes
And Ive seen lovers rollin round in bed
Screamin as if theyre gonna die
And Ive seen lovers holdin hands
And then laughin when their back is turned
But Ive never seen a woman
Who makes me feel
Woah, like you do
(solo)
Well Ive seen women who cross their legs
Before they sit down to the table
And Ive seen women who look to the sky
Screamin lord I believe in the bible
And Ive seen hookers dancin through times square
With their heads held up so high
But Ive never seen a woman
Who makes me feel
No Ive never seen a woman
Who can make me feel
Like you do

Isolated, not just glassed in, but apart

You ever just feel like you're in another world, because you're not like them
ever feel set apart, not sanctified, because it's like you're they condemn
you, not even for being a Christian, but just because you don't fit in
not because of lack of sin
or the 'not of the world' idea, i feel that, but what happens when you
don't fit in with your own people, when your meaningless interests conflict
even contradict
their own, when they look at like some alien and assume that they too
believe, but there seems to be this wall
that stops us from being friends, because im so different,
who are my people, when i don't even belong with those who are
'not of the world' they feel so far
away from me i can't help but feel isolated sometimes
as i write these rhymes
i also must wonder of them really know the real me
they can agree
with me
on what is important, but i must say i feel isolated
not just glassed in, but
apart...

Do You Know Where Your Man Is

Night is fallin' on this honky tonk city
country music spliin' out on the street
sure can sound good to a hard workin' man
at the end of a hard workin' week
did you kiss him when he left this morning
does he know that he's needed at home
if you don't feel that old thrill
then somebody else will
there's some mighty good women all alone
It's 10:00....... Do you know where your man is
and are you sure that he's doin' you right
are you still in his heart when he's out of your sight
do you know where your man is tonight?
Sometimes lovers just get too busy
livin' thier lives day by day
a true lovin' heart is so hard to find
and so easy to let slip away
so if he's there by your side
count your blessing
hold him tight and show him you care
'Cause temptaions out there.......
It's 12:00..... DO you know where your man is
and are you sure he's doing you right
are you still in his heart when he's out of your sight
do you know where your man is tonight?

All Around The World

Swear to God I just touched down
[chorus: jay-z + (latoiya)]
All around the world.. (same song)
Killa cali nigga (same song)
A-t-l (same song)
Real-adelphia.. dude its all around the world
[jay-z]
London, england, south of france
And all points between they know about your man
Konichiwa ladies when Im out in japan
Im a tokyo giant like ichiro, I am
Piss poor nigga from the hood but I blew
Now I bounce six-fours up and down crenshaw
Spot me the hotel, the cap, or capri
Bathrobe, slippers in the lobby like weed
Your manll stand manta ray, handlin a steak
And handlin the modern stand about five-eight
Five-nine fine wine fine dine either that
Or Im mixin in switzerland, tryin to buy time
Ballin out in bali when its gorgeous out in cali
Brunchin at the 4 seasons, off the heezy
When its back home nigga back to the zone
Nigga back to the books to the rhymes that took me
[chorus: jay-z + (latoiya)]
All around the world.. (same song)
Brooklyn bombers (same song)
Detroit players (same song)
Chi-town.. all around the world
[jay-z]
Said its all love, sure club, m-i-a
Party at bungalow eight, when I stay
Pool look like a hundred beyonces
A couple fiances, Im the new devante
Come and talk to me mami in the ea-sy
Garant, I hope, she aint too young
Only twenty-one and older let another nigga mold her
Im just tryin to show her how a baller and a roller
Sleep one place, sell the pie to keep the engine
Runnin then I wake up in marthas vineyard
Same boss this year, I think Im gon spend christmas
Reminisce about the time my mom couldnt spend christmas
Now Im gon send her on her own little wish list
Anywhere in the world, anywhere for my girl
Forever my lady, blind crippled and crazy
A ticket and you pay to see d - sweet sade
[latoiya]
Sade, sade, dont you know I love you sweet sade, sade
All around the world
[jay-z]
Said it aint where you from yo its where you at
Real niggaz out in brooklyn, some niggaz dont clap
Its real killers out in cali, some niggaz just act
Hollywood like they out the hood, its all to the good
Real players in the d-twa, some of them throwed
Slackin on they mackin, rest haven for hoes
Real pranksters in the chi, most of them real folks
Disciplined gangsters, come on charlie I know
Shit it aint about your city or borough
Its bout if you really as thorough
And if you are, holla at your boy
I put my hand on my heart, that means I feel you
Real recognize real and you lookin familiar
Ima bed-stuy nigga but I do it to death
I promise Im as st. thomas homey eatin at chefs
One-twelve, a-t-l, the sun up yet?
Then we party like the sun dont set
[latoiya]
We gon take you all around the world.. its the same song (same song)
Everywhere (same song)
Its the same song (same song)
We gon take you all around the world.. same song (same song)
Same song (same song)

I Wish Everyone In The World Were As Mad As You Are

I wish everyone in the world were as mad as you are.
I wish everyone in the world talked the same nonsense you do
and meant as much.
Stop crying.
I wish everyone in the world were as good as you are
and didn't lie to anyone else
other than themselves
about what the truth is.
You shape chaos to your mind
like light to space
to make a habitable planet you can live on
and if it isn't round sometimes
and O doesn't always cast the same shadow
that the others mimic with theirs
I wish everyone could put on your kind of airs
and be as good to life as the kind of atmosphere you are.
Come on now.
Here.
Dry your tears with this.
All those constellations you made up
out of the stars in your eyes
are your own private myths and mandalas
and you're free to change them as you will
and I wish everyone made as much
of the light they were given to go by
as you have.
I'm too much of a thorn
to paint the delicate iridescent watercolours
I see smeared on your tender bubbles
like original pictures of the universe
from a thousand spaced-out Hubbles
but I wish everyone in the world
had your kind of genius for vulnerability.
You hold up a single feather of light
like a candle among stars
like a green leaf in the middle of winter
and the world that is inured to three dimensions
for infinitely tedious reasons
would rather put its eyes out
and gape like blackholes
than see as you do
that there are countless seasons to the soul
that burn like a phoenix
and there's nowhere you can point to in the darkness
that isn't an equinox of love and understanding
when the sun shines at midnight
and spring harvests what the autumn sows.
Having a deep cosmic insight
like a stranger beyond lucidity
into the windows of the houses of your own zodiac
might make you look like a maniac to the neighbours
who keep watch in their asylum
against any kind of freedom
that might release them from their lighthouse
like a geni from a lamp
that doesn't conform to anyone's wishs but her own
but I wish everyone had the courage
you have not to be them.
Life isn't fair or unfair.
Life isn't kind or cruel.
It isn't half-Buddha and half-fool.
Neither impersonal
nor sentimental
life isn't a kind of obedience
to its own rules
as if it were bound like God to keep its word.
Or what?
Who else is there to answer to?
All the taboos want to be thresholds
and all the thresholds
want to run away from home.
Could be a curse.
Could be a blessing.
Could be just more idle words.
But you're not like that.
You're not a fountain mouth
that mistakes alphabets for birds
and holds them to the letter of the law
in a world full of music.
It's enlightenment to sing to a window.
It's ignorance to sing to a mirror.
But you don't sing to either
and your song is clear as running water
all the way down the mountain.
The picture-music
of your eyes and your ears
can already hear the ocean from here
that gathers to receive the flowing
like the heart receives blood
like the mind receives your thoughts.
Look out at the world.
You're the host.
Look inward.
You're the guest.
You can break bread with the dead
without being a ghost.
You can drink wine with the living
and it's the wine that gets high on you
flowing into a seabed of shadows on the moon
that hasn't touched a dropp for years.
Don't believe what the cynics say about innocence.
They have the sensibilities of blackflies
trying to draw blood from the Mona Lisa.
Don't grieve if you're a butterfly
that can't follow the flightplans of the maggots.
There's only a slight difference in wingspan
between a waterbird and a phoenix
but it would take lightyears
to measure a single feather of yours.
There's no cult of the rose
that insists it fall upon its own thorns first
or the moon draw first blood
on the blades of its own crescents.
You don't have to scar
your own deathmask with experience
just to prove you knew
how to eat the pain and bleed.
You don't have to wear your face in public
as if it were something you kept up your sleeve.
Dice might be the foundation-stones of the lost
but that doesn't mean
you have to go pearl-diving
for the moon in quicksand
or change your song like a jukebox
playing the slots
when you're a mermaid on the rocks.
I wish everyone had the same chance
to risk it all as you do
and win back their lives
like eleven come of seven
insteading of seeing everything
as if they were jinxed by inasuspicious birds
turning the wrong way on a prayer-wheel
that keeps coming up snake-eyes
with every roll of their skulls.
You can't heal the luck
of a wounded Nazi
by turning his swastika the other way.
You can't teach snakes to bite other people.
And you don't know enough
if there's anything left to say or understand
and even then there's a silence
that still longs to be heard
like a humming bird sipping honey from your ears
or deep in a telescopic wishing well of stars
burning in a dream of mirrors
they walk across
like fire on the water
or the distant blue notes
of the hidden nightbird
that echoes your tears
as if it were crying out in the darkness
from the safety of a secret place
for the same reasons you are.
As if it were trying to befriend its own sorrow
and weep for tomorrow as you do
for all the things of the past
it won't even know it's missing.
I wish everyone in the world
could live the future as you do
as something that is already happening now.
Even when you're crying
because you don't think you're brave enough
not to.
You're not a lame princess
that anyone needs to rescue.
You're a dragon bringing rain.
And if the snakepit hisses at you
like a social structure
and calls you insane sometimes
because you have wings
and they still hug the earth
all tied up in knots
taking their poisons out on each other
to keep from feeling anything
it's just their way of defining sanity
by the standards of the numbest.
It's not you that's crazy.
It's not you that's the dumbest.
I wish everyone in the world
were as warm-blooded and wise as you are.
When the serpent fire at the base of your spine
has passed through the doors
of all your chakras like vertebrae
and you're already a circumpolar constellation j
just a little off true north
shining like Draco
why worry if you're no good
at the game of snakes and ladders
they play like politics and religion back here on earth
to see who gets to be the pillar
and who the quicksand.
You understand way more than that.
I can tell by the fire in your eyes
that you're a phoenix among stars
and you've transcended the eagles and the houseflies
that can't even begin to imagine
the kind of heights you can reach to
or the depth of the view below you
when you're riding your own thermals
like beautiful helices in the mindstream
for the sheer joy of being only you.
Even now.
These tears
that run all the way down to your lips
as if water had fingertips
what are they
but the way you cry for things
that everyone else didn't?
I wish everyone in the world could be like you.
I wish you could teach us all
to stop living a spiritual lie
on the deathbed of an earthly truth
as if that were the only way
to foolproof ourselves
against reality
like a stranger looking through our windows at night
who doesn't recognize herself in us
because most of us aren't as brave and free as you are
to leave the door ajar
and let whatever wants to come in
come in.
Some track in mud.
Some.
Stars.
And the mud flowers in light.
And the stars bloom in fire.
And one looks up
and the other looks down
on each other's likeness
reflected in the other
as if they were engendered by the same being.
Sight is a kind of love
and I wish everyone in the world
were inspired by the mystic dimensions
and intimate clarity of your kind of seeing
that even through these tears
that I'm not having much luck in wiping away
can comprehend a world
that's more wonderful than it thinks it is.

Whatever kind of movie it is, you're going to be more into it when you care more about the drama, or you'll have a better laugh if you feel like you know the people better.

Hardest Thing In The World (Bredbury Manchester 1986)

The hardest thing in the world
Holland [?] it don't please
I never wanted to leave
Searching for a perfect day
It never happens that way - ahey hey hey
I'm sick and tired and so obscene
Will heaven help me be clean?
Searching for a perfect day
It never happens that way - ahey hey hey
Cut away, I know your world wants you around [?]
You never heard a word I said
It's very simple to me
That if you knew you wouldn't say
It never happens that way - ahey hey hey
And the impression I get
As the story unfurls:
That you're the hardest thing in the world
Cut away, I know your world wants you around
What you feel might not be
It seems softer [?] to me
I cannot climb to touch your spire
I'm getting higher and higher
Cut away, I know your world wants you around
The hardest thing in the world

The World Keeps Going Round

You worry bout the sun
Whats the use of worrying bout the big ol sun
You worry bout the rain
The rain keeps falling just the same
You worry when the one you need has found somebody new
But the world keeps going round
The world keeps going round
You just cant stop it
The world keeps going round
You worry bout yourself
Whats the use of worrying now youre almost grown
You worry bout your home[? ]
Whats the use of worrying cause youll die alone
Times will be hard, rain will fall
And youll feel mighty low
But the world keeps going round
The world keeps going round
You just cant stop it
The world keeps going round
Times will be hard, rain will fall
And youll feel mighty low
But the world keeps going round
The world keeps going round
The world keeps going round
The world keeps going round
You just cant stop it
The world keeps going round
The world keeps going round

The World Keeps Going Around

You worry 'bout the sun
What's the use of worrying 'bout the big ol' sun
You worry 'bout the rain
The rain keeps falling just the same
You worry when the one you need has found somebody new
But the world keeps going round
The world keeps going round
You just can't stop it
The world keeps going round
You worry 'bout yourself
What's the use of worrying now you're almost grown
You worry 'bout your home[?]
What's the use of worrying 'cause you'll die alone
Times will be hard, rain will fall
And you'll feel mighty low
But the world keeps going round
The world keeps going round
You just can't stop it
The world keeps going round
Times will be hard, rain will fall
And you'll feel mighty low
But the world keeps going round
The world keeps going round
The world keeps going round
The world keeps going round
You just can't stop it
The world keeps going round
The world keeps going round
