A Simple Thing Like Cry

(nickolas ashford/valerie simpson)
If it didnt hurt so bad
If it didnt hurt so bad
Maybe I could cry
If I thought it was all a joke
And you were putting me on
If I could just make a wish
And this moment would be all gone
If I could see a trace of hope
Somewhere in your eyes
Maybe then I could do
A simple thing like cry
If it didnt hurt so bad
If it didnt hurt so bad
Maybe I could cry
Dont you know I plan to spend
Every moment of my life with you
Now youre trying to tell me
That my dreams just wont come true
Thanks for giving me a million reasons why
But it hurts too bad to do
A simple thing like cry
If I thought it was all a joke
And you were putting me on
If I could just make a wish
And this moment would be all gone
If I could see a trace of hope
Somewhere in your eyes
Maybe then I could do
A simple thing like cry
If it didnt hurt so bad
If it didnt hurt me so bad
Maybe I could
If it didnt hurt so bad
Maybe I could cry
I could cry, cry
If it didnt hurt me
If I didnt love you
Hurt me

Its my house and I live here

Its my house and I live here
Theres a welcome mat at the door
And if you come on in
Youre gonna get much more
Theres my chair

Everything you see

On the table, there sits a rose
Through every window

Books of feeling on the shelf above

Theres a candle to light the stairs
Where my dreams await someone to share
Oh, theres music on the radio
And good vibrations wont let me go

It was built for love, ooh
You say you wanna move in with me
You say you wanna move in with me
Got to follow the rules to get me

Wanna visit my house, yeah

Theres a welcome mat at the door
And if you come on in

Youre All I Need To Get By

(nickolas ashford/valerie simpson)
When I was just a little girl
I wanted the world at my feet
Now all thats changed
cause I have love
And now I do can see
Youre all I need to get by
Like the sweet morning dew
I took one look at you
And it was plain to see
You were my destiny
With arms open wide
I threw away my pride
Ill sacrifice for you
Dedicate my life to you
I will go, where you lead
Always there in time of need
And when you lose your will
Ill be there to push you up the hill
Theres no, no looking back for us
Weve got love
Sure enough
Thats enough
Youre all I need to get by
All, youre all I need to get by
Like an mother protects his nest
For you Ill do my best
Stand by you like a tree
Dare anybody to try to move me
Darling in you I found
Strength where I was torn down
Dont know whats in store
But together we can open any door
Just to do whats good for you
And inspire you a little higher
I know you can make a woman
Out of a soul that didnt have a goal
cause we, we got the right foundation
And with love and determination
Youre all I want to strive for and do a little more
All, all the joys under the sun wrapped up into
Youre all I need to get by
All, youre all I need to get by

Remember Me

(nickolas ashford/valerie simpson)
Bye baby, see you around
Didnt I tell you I wouldnt hold you down
Take good care of yourself, yhear
Dont let me hear about you shedding a tear
Youre gonna make it
Youre gonna take it
Remember me as a sunny day
That you once had, along the way
Didnt I inspire you a little higher
Remember me as a funny clown
That made you laugh when you were down
Didnt I boy, didnt I boy
Remember me as a big balloon
At a carnaval that ended too soon
Remember me as a breath of spring
Remember me as a good thing
Bye baby, see you around
I already know about the new love youve found
What can I do but wish you well
What we had was really swell
I wont forget it, I have no regrets
Remember me as a sound of laughter
And my face the morning after
Didnt the sky beckon us to fly?
Yes, youl remember the times we fought
But dont forget me in your tender thoughts
Please darlin oh yeah
Remember me when you drink the wine
Of sweet succes and I gave you my best
Remember me every song you sing
Remember me as a good thing
Remember me as a sunny day
Please darling, remember me as a good thing
Remember me when you drink the wine
Remember me as a good thing
Remember me as a big balloon
Dont forget me darling

Im In The World

(nickolas ashford/valerie simpson)
Im in the world
Im in the world
Im in the world
I must be part of it
At last convinced
To the right of it
Im in the world
For some reason or another
Sometimes I get up
And sometimes I dont bother
But Im here
Im here for, oh lord, who knows?
My light gets dim
Then it glows, ooh yeah

And being what it is
Ive learnt to look
To look beyond the tears

Though hearts dont break even
Ill take my chances
cause it aint about leaving

Im here and I wont apologize
Maybe at the end therell be a surprise
Oh, yeah

And If You See Him

(nickolas ashford/valerie simpson)
And if you see him
Tell him I miss him
Tell him I feel so bad
For messing up what we had
And if you see him
Tell him Im sorry
And I regret the day
I let him walk away
And I want to be by his side
And I need his love and pride
And I need him
And if you see him
Tell him Im begging
Ill do a song and dance
Just for a second chance
And if you see him
Tell him just how I look
The circles underneath my eyes
The make up dont seem to hide
And I stay awake every night
And I pray that he just might walk in
And love me
Walk in and love me
I miss him more than hell ever know
Tell him he was
My everything
He was more than just a flame
And I need him
I miss him
And if you see him
Tell him my fire
No, its just wont burn
Till the day that he returns
And I want to be by his side
And I need his love and pride
And if you see him
Tell him Im begging

All The Befores

(nickolas ashford/valerie simpson)
Thought I could make it
Without you
Thought I could walk away
And never look back
Thought I had the secret
To stop these eyes from crying
Told myself he were no good
So whats the need in trying
But as you see, here I am
Loving you stronger than ever
Promising to be better
Getting into my head
I dont know how
To be nothing but yours
I guess I should have learned
From all the befores
I wrote a nice long letter
Explaining my reasons for leaving
Hoping it would tear you apart
And leave you grieving
I bet you didnt even read it
Youre so familiar with the lines
You just glanced up at the clock
cause you knew the exact time Id knock
Without pride
Here I stand
Waiting for your forgiveness
This is where I belong
Come what may
This time Ill stay
You might as well lock all the doors
I guess I should have learned
From all the befores
Promising to be better
And getting into my head
I dont know how to be nothing but yours
I guess I should have learned
From all the befores

The Boss

(nickolas ashford/valerie simpson)
Fancy me
Thought I had my degree
In life and how love
Ought to be a run
I had a one step plan to prove it
Guide in my pocket for fools
Folly and fun
Love had to show me one thing
I was so right
So right
Thought I could turn emotion
On and off
I was so sure
So sure (I was so sure)
But love taught me
Who was who was who was the boss
(taught me who was who was the boss)
Id defy
Anyone who claimed that i
Didnt control whatever moved in my soul
I could tempt
Touch delight
Just because you fell for me
Why should I feel uptight
Love had to show me one thing:
I was so right
So right
Thought I could turn emotion
On and off
I was so sure
So sure (I was so sure)
But love taught me
Who was who was who was the boss
(taught me who was who was the boss)
Love taught me
Taught me
Taught me
Taught me
I was so right
So right
Thought I could turn emotion
On and off
I was so sure
So sure (I was so sure)
But love taught me
Who was who was who was the boss
(taught me who was who was the boss)

What You Gave Me

(nickolas ashford/valerie simpson)
Youve given me so much warmth
I dont see how I could ever grow cold
In my mind theres a picture of you and i
That nobody has the price to buy
I dont know what made you change your mind
But youll be back
Its just a matter of time
cause what you gave me is more than enough to last
Ooh, baby
What you gave me is more than enough to last
Yeah, into my life you came
Like a breath of spring
Giving me a song to sing
Though I know youre leaving
But I wont be grieving
cause time has a way of showing us
The things that we really need
And no matter where you go
I know youll find your way back home
cause though I know its not reality
Youll always be a part of me
cause what you gave me is more than enough to last
What you gave me is more than enough to last
What you gave me
What you gave me is more than enough to last
Yes, yes its more
Its more than enough to last
Yes, yes its more
Its more than enough to last
What you gave me is more than enough to last
What you gave me is more than enough to last
What you gave me is more than enough to last
What you gave me is more than enough to last

Where There Was Darkness

(nickolas ashford/valerie simpson)
Where there was darkness
You came and now theres
An abundance of light
Nothing but sinkin sand
Suddenly I reach out
Theres your hand
What a feeling it is to know
Youre in my corner
And you wont let me go
And now I know that
I wont be alone no more
Ill give you all I have
And if you teach me
I will learn to give you more
You are my anchor now
And like a ship at sea
Ooh, your love will steady me
What a feeling this is to know
Youre in my corner
And you wont let me go
And now I know that
I wont be alone no more
Im so glad
Just wanna thank you baby
What a feeling this is to know
Youre in my corner
And you wont let me go
What a feeling this is to know
Youre in my corner
And you wont let me go
What a feeling this is to know
Youre in my corner
And you wont let me go
Thank you baby
What a feeling this is to know
Youre in my corner
And you wont let me go

Sparkle

(nickolas ashford/valerie simpson)
You put the sparkle back in my smile
You made me want to walk a thousand miles
You let me know that its so
And everything must live
Everything must breath
Now you say you must leave
You put the sparkle back in my smile, ooh baby
You made me wanna walk a thousand miles
You let me know that its so
And everything must live
Everything must breath
Now you say you must leave
Just the other day
You seemed so content
Its a joke
You thought it up the spur of the moment
Please ease my mind
Come on set it right
cause if you dont
I wont sleep a wink tonight
You put the sparkle back in my smile, ooh baby
You made me wanna walk a thousand miles
You let me know that its so
And everything must live
Everything must breath
Now you say you must leave
You let me know that its so
And everything must live
Everything must breath
Everything must live
Everything must breath
Now you say you wanna leave

Reach Out & Touch

(nickolas ashford/valerie simpson)
Reach out and touch
Somebodys hand
Make this world a better place
If you can
Reach out and touch
Somebodys hand
Make this world a better place
If you can
(just try)
Take a little time out of your busy day
To give encouragement
To someone whos lost the way
(just try)
Or would I be talking to a stone
If I asked you
To share a problem thats not your own
We can change things if we start giving
Why dont you
Reach out and touch
Somebodys hand
Make this world a better place
If you can
Reach out and touch
Somebodys hand
Make this world a better place
If you can
(just try)
If you see an old friend on the street
And hes down
Remember his shoes could fit your feet
(just try)
Try a little kindness youll see
Its something that comes very naturally
We can change things if we start giving
Why dont you
Reach out and touch
Why dont you (why dont you)
Reach out and touch somebodys hand
Reach out and touch
Somebodys hand
Make this world a better place
If you can
Reach out and touch
Somebodys hand
Make this world a better place
If you can

I Wouldnt Change The Man He Is

(nickolas ashford/valerie simpson)
Ive got a funny kind of guy
Nobody knows him
Any better than i
Says without me
He can get along
But I know thats just a mans way
Of saying hes strong
But I wouldnt change him no
Oh I wouldnt change his funny ways
cause hes the cause of my sunny days
And though sometimes he brings me little tears
Still love the man he is
If I do something to please him
He never gives me credit
If I think hell bring me candy and roses
Huh, I might as well forget it
Hes the kind of a man
Who likes his privacy
And when a mood hits him
I know when to let him be
But I wouldnt change him no
I wouldnt change his funny, funny ways
cause hes the cause of my sunny days
And though sometimes he brings me little tears
Still love the man he is
Sometimes when he hurts me so bad
I think Ive got migraine in the head
All he has to do is touch me
Tears disappear
Ill forgive him in a minute
I have to pretend
There aint much I know
Hes the kind of a man
Who likes to run the show
But I wouldnt change him, no
I wouldnt change his funny ways
cause hes the cause of my sunny days
Though sometimes he brings me little tears
Still love the man he is
Oh I love that man
I wouldnt change his funny ways
And I wouldnt change the man he is..

Didn't You Know

(nickolas ashford/valerie simpson)
Remember when you left?
You had your own rules about playing the game
And any day, you could walk away feeling no pain
Now look at yourself
You're all hung up on somebody else
And in your eyes i see all the signs of the misery
That you laid on me
Baby, baby
Didn't you know you'd have to cry sometime?
Didn't you know
Didn't you know you'd have to hurt sometime?
Didn't you know that you'd lose your pride?
Didn't anybody tell you love had another side?
You used to be so proud
Now, your head's a little lower
And you walk slower
And you don't talk so loud
You've gotten wise
You know how love can build you up one moment
And the next, cut you down to size
Then you discover
All she told you was a bunch of lies
Baby, baby
Didn't you know you'd have to cry sometime?
Didn't you know
Didn't you know you'd have to hurt sometime?
Didn't you know that you'd lose your pride?
Didn't anybody tell you love had another side?
Baby, baby
Didn't you know you'd have to cry sometime?
Didn't you know
Didn't you know you'd have to hurt sometime?
Didn't you know you'd have to cry sometime?
Didn't you know you'd have to hurt sometime?
Didn't you know you'd have to hurt sometime?
Didn't you know you'd have to hurt sometime?

Cause everyone here respects your opinion

Youve been pushing and pulling and shoving
Since the day you were born

No One Gets The Prize

(nickolas ashford/valerie simpson)
No one, no one gets the prize
No one, no one
No one gets the prize
We were best of friends
It all began
He came in to town and changed the plan
I knew she felt, the same as me
Which one of us would it be
Just in fun, fight begun
Before long a web of hate was spun
She pretended same as me
Oh, but friends again wed never be
No one, no one gets the prize
She told him lies, and I told him lies
No one, no one gets the prize
She schemed and dreamed and told him dirt
That I was wrong for him
I told him all the boys shed hurt and I would number them
He was the ray of light that made our hearts live
But either one of us knew really how to give
So we scandalized and criticized
And then we learned how to despise
No one, no one gets the prize
She told him lies and I lied, I lied yeah
No one, no one gets the prize
No, no, no
Yeah, yeah
Back off
Tried to steal him, tried to steal him
Tried to steal him
Runnin behind my back
Tried to steal him
Tried to show him where it was at
Watch it now
No, no I wont take second place
No, no tell him to his face
We were friends for so, so, so long
Messed around, now hes gone gone gone gone
No one, no one gets the prize
No, no
No one, no one gets the prize
I wasnt alive, a love thats satisfied
No one, no one gets the prize
It wasnt fair, the love I couldnt share
No one, no one gets the prize
No, no
No one, no one gets the prize
No one, no one gets the prize
She lied, I lied, we lied
No one, no one

Now That Theres You

(nickolas ashford/valerie simpson)
Now that theres you
I can get up in the morning
Look down the lonesome road
Know that I have the strength to carry on
Now that theres you
Love abides in my soul
I have a purpose, I have a goal
I can reach out and touch the star
Yesterday it seemed so far
Now that theres you, oh you
No matter the trial
Ill get by coz I know theres an answer
Somewhere in your smile
Now that theres you
I can reach that mountain top
till I get there I wont stop
Ive a new sense of pride
It makes me do things I never tried
Now that theres you oh, you
I can feel I am real
At last I taste the honey
Im alive for the first time
And the sun shines over
Now that theres you
Hey, you
Oh oh oh oh
I see all the colours the world was supposed to be
And now a robin sings and I know theres spring
Now that theres you
Every day I seem to find a new dimension of my mind
Im no longer a piece of clay
My heart has some buried lungs to say
Now that theres you, oh you
I can feel I am real
At last I taste the honey
Im alive for the first time
And the sun shines over
Now that theres you
Thank you baby
I feel I am real
At last I taste the honey
Im alive for the first time
And the sun shines over
Now that theres you
Im real Im real
At last I taste the honey
Im alive for the first time
And the sun shines over
Now that theres you
La la la la la
La la la la la la la
Im alive for the first time
And the sun shines over
Now that theres you
Im real Im real
At last I taste the honey
Im alive for the first time
And the sun shines over
Now that theres you

Can I Go On?

(quincy jones/nickolas ashford/valerie simpson)
Lose it?
Lose it?
I dont even know the first thing
About what theyre feeling
What am I afraid of?
Dont know what Im made of
Can I go on
Not knowing?
Feeling?
Feeling?
Something tells me
That its more than I can deal with
Though I never knew the song
Some words still catch on
Like caring and sharing
Being together no matter
Can I go on
Not knowing?
Dont know what Im made of
Why am I afraid of feeling?
Feeling?
If I dare to take a chance
Would someone lead me?

Can I Go On?

Written & composed: quincy jones, nickolas ashford & valerie simpson
Music: quincy jones, nickolas ashford & valerie simpson
Lose it? lose it?
I dont even know the first thing about what theyre feeling;
What am I afraid of?
Dont know what Im made of,
Can I go on, not knowing?
Feeling? feeling?
Something tells me that its more than I can deal with;
Tho I never knew the song,
Some words still catch on like caring,
And sharing being together, no matter,
Can I go on not knowing?
Dont know what Im made of,
Why am I afraid of
Feel-ing? feel-ing? if I dare to take a chance,
Would someone lead me?
