“You Don’t Know”

You Don’t Know
performed by Jill Scott

Did you ever know what it is to be hurt
Did you ever feel like dirt
Did you ever give up on your pride
Just to have him by your side

Well if you don’t know what I am talking about
You don’t know nothing
You don’t know nothing
You don’t know
You don’t know nothing
About love

When the night time comes do your tears fall like rain
and in the morning do they fall all over again
Tell me did you get down on your knees and pray
That should never never never go away

Well if you don’t know what I am talking about
You don’t know nothing
You don’t know nothing
You don’t know nothing
nothing about love

Don’t try to tell me that I am out of my mind
Cause any where my man goes
I will be right behind
You don’t know nothing
You don’t know nothing
You don’t know nothing
You don’t know nothing
You don’t know nothing
You don’t know nothing
About love…

Wading

Wading
by Jhene Aiko

Picture me rollin’ out in the open, baby
I know that you would notice
You had been hoping I wouldn’t go
Should I be waiting?
Should I be waiting for you?
Don’t keep me waiting
I will turn blue

Picture me rollin’ out in the open
With some other man I know
That you would notice
And you would hope that feelings
Wouldn’t start to grow
While I was wading
While I was wading
Wading for you
I have been wading
I will be wading till I turn blue
‘Til I turn blue
… … … … …
I am not perfect
I would never let you think
I was more than this
As good as it gets
I’ll have one regret
You’re something I cannot miss

I will be wading
I will be wading for you
I will be wading
I will be wading till I turn blue

I am not perfect
I would never let you think
I was more than this
As good as it gets
I’ll have one regret
You’re something I cannot miss

I will be wading
I will be wading
Wading for you
I will be wading
I will be wading till I turn blue
‘Til I turn blue
… … … …
And I will do it
I’ll do it
I’ll prove it
I’ve proved it
I’ve proven it, My love
Baby don’t do it, don’t do it
Don’t ruin what you went and you did,
My love

I’m Not In Love

performed by Dee Dee Sharp

I’m not in love
So don’t forget it
It’s just a silly phase I’m going through
And just because
I call you up
Don’t get me wrong, don’t think you’ve got it made
I’m not in love, no no, it’s because..

I’d like to see you
But then again
That doesn’t mean you mean that much to me
So if I call you
Don’t make a fuss
Don’t tell your friends about the two of us
I’m not in love, no no, it’s because..

I keep your picture
Upon the wall
It hides a nasty stain that’s lying there
So don’t you ask me
To give it back
I know you know it doesn’t mean one thing to me
I’m not in love, no, it’s because..

Ooh you’ll wait a long time for me
Ooh you’ll wait a long time
Ooh you’ll wait a long time for me
Ooh you’ll wait a long time

I’m not in love
So don’t forget it
It’s just a silly phase I’m going through
And just because I call you up
Don’t get me wrong, don’t think you’ve got it made

I’m not in love
I’m not in love
I’m not in love
So don’t forget it
It’s just a silly phase I’m going through
And just because

Night Time

Night Time

by Krizz Kalico

You do love the nighttime
Ah yea?
Yea
It’s crazy
Feels so real
It is real

In the nighttime
The night is on it’s way
For some reason I feel better
I’m so bored of the day
Like I know how I feel it’s right
In the nighttime
It’s wrong for me to feel this way

So excuse me if it’s weird
When it’s dark some people fear it
I go near it, I can feel it
The sun just fell and I know this feeling well
A change is taking place, my city’s out of space
And I wonder who’s gonna cry tonight, who’s gonna get fly tonight
Get drunk, get high tonight
And who’s gon die tonight?
What is waiting on the side of daytime?
Feels like it’s play time

In the nighttime
The night is on it’s way
For some reason I feel better
I’m so bored of the day
Like I know how I feel it’s right
In the nighttime
It’s wrong for me to feel this way

In my head it’s always nightfall
Close my eyes and then the light’s off
I’m at the white love
Yea these streets still gotta beat me but the mic’s off
They hollerin Kali baby, put your arms round me baby
And show me what’s it made for
I like the sunshine
But I love the moonlight
The freaks come out at night
The darkness is the right time
For us to do what we do

In the nighttime
The night is on it’s way
For some reason I feel better
I’m so bored of the day
Like I know how I feel it’s right

It’s crazy
Don’t know why I feel this way
In the nighttime
It’s crazy
In the nighttime

Gone Gone Gone

Gone Gone Gone
by Phillip Phillips

When life leaves you high and dry
I’ll be at your door tonight
If you need help, if you need help
I’ll shut down the city lights,
I’ll lie, cheat, I’ll beg and bribe
To make you well, to make you well
When enemies are at your door
I’ll carry you away from war
If you need help, if you need help
Your hope dangling by a string
I’ll share in your suffering
To make you well, to make you well
Give me reasons to believe
That you would do the same for me
And I would do it for you, for you
Baby, I’m not moving on
I love you long after you’re gone.
For you, for you.
You would never sleep alone
I love you long after you’re gone
And long after you’re gone, gone, gone.
When you fall like a statue
I’m gon’ be there to catch you
Put you on your feet, you on your feet
And if your well is empty
Not a thing will prevent me
Tell me what you need, what do you need
I surrender honestly
You’ve always done the same for me
So I would do it for you, for you.
Baby, I’m not moving on
I love you long after you’re gone.
For you, for you.
You would never sleep alone.
I love you long after you’re gone
And long after you’re gone gone gone.
You’re my back bone,
You’re my cornerstone
You’re my crutch when my legs stop moving
You’re my head start,
You’re my rugged heart
You’re the pulse that I’ve always needed
Like a drum, baby, don’t stop beating
Like a drum, baby, don’t stop beating
Like a drum, baby, don’t stop beating
Like a drum my heart never stops beating
For you, for you
Baby I’m not moving on
I love you long after you’re gone.
For you, for you.
You would never sleep alone
I love you long after you’re gone.
For you, for you.
Baby I’m not moving on,
I love you long after you’re gone.
For you, for you.
You would never sleep alone.
I love you long, long after you’re gone.
Like a drum, baby, don’t stop beating
Like a drum, baby, don’t stop beating
Like a drum, baby, don’t stop beating
Like a drum my heart never stops beating for you
And long after you’re gone, gone, gone.
I love you long after you’re gone gone, gone.
