“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…

Could Have Been You

Could Have Been You
performed live by Joss Stone in Paris

Well it’s a shame
We used to be so tight
Tell me what’s your game
Since you left me outside
I’m gonna change my track
Go anywhere but back
Ooh, ooh, when I think about it
I’m better off without it
There’s no gain
Only pain
My heart can’t take the strain
I can’t sit
On the shelf
I’ll give my love to someone else
If you see me walking by
Hand-in-hand with another guy
Know that it’s true
It could have been you
If you’d only treated me right
Out of sight, baby out of mind
That’s what you do
It could have been you
Don’t wanna wait
For what you promised me
Like a train: delayed
Forever so it seems
I’m gonna change my track
Go anywhere but back
Ooh, ooh, when I think about it
I’m better off without it
There’s no gain
Only pain
My heart can’t take the strain
I can’t sit
On the shelf
I’ll give my love to someone else
If you see me walking by
Hand-in-hand with another guy
Know that it’s true
It could have been you
If you’d only treated me right
Out of sight, baby out of mind
That’s what you do
It could have been you
You could have been
My first, my last, forever
You held it in your hands
My heart, my treasure
The proof is in the memories
So sad to know that’s all that’s left for you is
What could have been..
If you see me walking by
Hand-in-hand with another guy
Know that it’s true
It could have been you
If you’d only treated me right
Out of sight, baby out of mind
That’s what you do
It could have been you
Forget you, babe

Used To Love You

Used To Love You

by John Legend

La la la la
Ala la la

Maybe, it’s me, maybe I bore you
No no, it’s my fault ‘coz I can’t afford you
Maybe baby, Puffy, Jay Z
Would all be better for you ‘coz all I could do is love you

Baby, when I used to love U
There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do
I went through the fire for you
Do anything you asked me to

But I’m tired of livin’ this lie
It’s getting harder to justify
I realized that I just don’t love you
Not like I used to

La la la la
Yeah
Ala la la
Yeah, yeah

Maybe, I should rob somebody
So we could live like Whitney and Bobby
It’s probably my fault, my bad, my loss
But you are above cost, all I could do was love you

Baby, when I used to love U
There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do
I went through the fire for you
Do anything you asked me to

But I’m tired of livin’ this lie
It’s getting harder to justify
I realized that I just don’t love you
Not like I used to

La la la la
Yeah
Ala la la
Yeah, yeah

Do you remember when I used to love U?
Baby, no not any more, I don’t love you
Ooh, I used to love you
And you’re gonna miss me now

Baby, when I used to love U
There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do
I went through the fire for you
And I’m not gonna play the fool

No, I can’t live this life and I can’t justify
And I can’t make up my life
‘Coz I don’t love you
Not like I used to do

La la la la
Not like I used to
Ala la la
Not like I used to

Oh, I used to love U
Oh, but I don’t love you
Oh, I used to love U
Oh, but I don’t love you
Oh, I used to love U
Oh, but I don’t love you
Oh, but I don’t love you
I bet you miss me now
Oh, but I don’t love you

Dirty Man

Dirty Man

performed live by Joss Stone

You’re a dirty, dirty man
And you gotta dirty mind
You’re a dirty, dirty man
You and that other woman, you’re two of a kind
But you forgot one thing baby when you were doing me wrong
That I’m a good house keeper
I’m gonna take my broom and sweep
All of the dirt out on the street

You’re a dirty, dirty man
Oh in so many, so many dirty ways
You’re a dirty, dirty man
And you’ve been hiding your little dirt all over this here place
I know you have
Oh here’s my chance baby to throw some mud in your face

Coz I’m a good house keeper
I’m gonna take my broom and sweep
All of the dirt, yes I am, out on the street

Oh, I’m cleaning out my whole house
Fast as I can
Its time to make everything spic and span

You’re a dirty, ooh you’re a dirty man
You do me dirty for so many years, yes u did
You’re a dirty, dirty man, yes u are
And I’m tired of you and your woman and your dog too
You’re a dirty man
You’re a dirty man
Now get outta my house
Don’t u never, never, never come back again
Don’t u never
You’re a dirty, dirty man

And I’m done with your dirty ways

Let’s Get Lifted

by John Legend

I’ve got something new for you
When it gets you won’t know what to do
Relax, let me move you
Don’t resist its in the air
Just one taste will take you there
Let it flow right through you
I know you’re getting tired of the same ole thing
Imma break the rules gonna change the game
You’ll be screaming my name
And imma take you places you neva seen
You couldn’t picture this in your wildest dreams
Don’t fear you’re here with me

[Chorus:]
Let’s get lifted
(lifted)
Ohh Imma get you high
I’m really gonna blow your mind
We’ll get lifted (lifted)
You’re gonna feel it in you’re soul
And baby you will lose control
We’ll get lifted (high)
Ohhh ohhhh

Once you take a hit of this
You won’t ever want to quit
You’ll be so addicted
Said I’ll have you spinning round and round
Crazy, making freaky sounds
You won’t want to come down
And I’ll have you seeing things and hallucinating
Even walking funny ’cause you’re legs are shaking
All night we’ll be blazin’

I’ll take you for a walk to the other side
We can get high and enjoy the ride
Hold tight we’ll be alright

[Chorus:]

So come and go
(so much I want to show you I’ll take you there)
Yeah, I’ll take you there
Lemme take you there
Said I will show you
(so much I want to show you I’ll take you high)
There’s so much I want to show ya
I’ll take you high ….

Wake Up Everybody

Wake Up Everybody
performed by John Legend & the Roots
featuring Common and Melanie Fiona

Wake up everybody
No more sleepin’ in bed
No more backward thinkin’
Time for thinkin’ ahead

The world has changed
So very much
From what it used to be
There is so much hatred
War and poverty, whoa, oh

Wake up, all the teachers
Time to teach a new way
Maybe then they’ll listen
To what’cha have to say

‘Cause they’re the ones who’s coming up
And the world is in their hands
When you teach the children
Teach ’em the very best you can

The world won’t get no better
If we just let it be, na, na, na
The world won’t get no better
We gotta change it, yeah
Just you and me

Wake up, all the doctors
Make the old people well
They’re the ones who suffer
And who catch all the hell

But they don’t have so very long
Before the Judgment Day
So wont’cha make them happy
Before they pass away

Wake up, all the builders
Time to build a new land
I know we can do it
If we all lend a hand

The only thing we have to do
Is put it in our mind
Surely things will work out
They do it every time

The world won’t get no better
If we just let it be, na, na, na
The world won’t get no better
We gotta change it, yeah
Just you and me

It’s the God hour, the morning I wake up
Just for the breath of life I thank my maker
My mom say I come from hustlers and shakers
My mind builded on skyscrapers and acres
He said take us back to where we belong
I try to write a song as sweet as the Psalms
Though I am the type to bear arms and wear my heart on my sleeve
Even when I fell in God I believe
We the days at
Weave through the maze and the season so amazing
Feed them and raise them
Seasons are asian
Earthquakes, wars and rumors
I want us to get by but we more then consumers
We more than shooters
More than looters,
Created in his image,
So God live through us,
And even in his generation living through computers
On love, love, love can reboot us

Wake up, everybody
Wake up, everybody
Need a little help, y’all
Yes I do, need a little help

Need a little help, y’all ay
Wake up everybody
Wake up everybody
Wake up everybody
