Lyrics

Around The World
Backstabber
Beautiful Boy
Can’t Leave, Can’t Stay
Come Closer
Confused
Drifting
Electricity
Fly Bird, Fly
Forever
Gotta Let You Know
Hold Your Head Up High
How I Love 2 Luv U
I Apologize

Inside Your Soul
It’s A Beautiful Day
I Knew You Were The One
In My Dreams
In Your Arms Again
I Wonder
La, La, La-La
Leaves Are Turning
Let The Candle Burn
Let’s Just Waste Some Time
Locked in the Shadows
Love Has Finally Called My Name
More Today Than Yesterday
Out The Door

Queen of Me
Run Away
Things That You Do
What Am I Doing Here?
Where Do We Go?
What’s Going On Next Door?
Wind at My Back
You Gotta Believe
You Pierced My Soul
You Make Me Feel
You’re Mysterious
You’re So Good To Me
You’re So Into You

AROUND THE WORLD

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1
Pack your bags let’s get away
I’m in the mood to leave today
Don’t you worry ‘bout the rent and all the bills
Cuz they’ve been paid
Tell your boss that you’re on leave
Call your friends and family
Hold the mail
And change the message on your voice mail
We’ll be gone for quite some time
Lots of places we can fly
People everywhere will see
Our message written in the sky
You’re all work and I’m all play
Why don’t we just meet half way
Pack your bags, I want to leave today

Chorus:
I wanna rock around the world
Take you on a carpet ride
No need to rush, let’s take our time
Unwind, to the beat of life

V2
Chocolate San Francisco treats
We’ll be dancin’ in the streets
Make our way to Mardi Gras and funky Blues in New Orleans
Rio’s Sugarloaf we’ll climb
Listen to the Big Ben chime
Ride the ferry, cross the channel with Parisian Pantomimes
Travel to the Taj Mahal
See the wonders in Nepal
Listen to the roaring thunder of the waters of the Nile
Barrel down Niagara Falls
In Ibiza lose control
Pack your bags, I want to leave today

Bridge:
Let’s rock around the world
And roll together
eh-eh, eh-eh, eh-eh-eh-eh
We’ll rock around the world
And roll together
eh-eh, eh-eh, eh-eh-eh-eh

V3
We’ll have all that we need
It will be you and me
And the places we’ll see
There’ll be treasures to find
In the sparkling sky
We’ll fulfill our desires
Let your spirit fly free
There’s no place we can’t be
We’ll do more than sightsee
Life’s a journey we should take
Lots of memories we’ll make
Pack your bags, I want to leave today

BACKSTABBER

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1
Where were you when I needed you the most
Hiding there in the shadows like a ghost
Just pretending you couldn’t hear me cry
All along when I thought you were there for me
As I gave you the love and support you need
Turned out that you were simply passing time
As you plotted your moves
Cuz you’re a

Chorus:
Backstabber, you backstabber
Spread your lies when it’s over

V2
When I hear things you say behind my back
From your friends who you think will join in your attack
Will you take them back
I don’t think you will
Why do you stay when you feel this way ‘bout me
What’s your plan, what you want to take from me
Like a thief in the night you’re just passing time
As you’re plotting your moves
Cuz you’re a…

Break:
Backstab
You backstabber
Look back, I see a traitor
Who’s a tough a talker too
And I don’t trust you

BEAUTIFUL BOY

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1
It’s always special when you call my name
And you ask me to come over
I catch my breath each time you play the game
Of your fingers on my shoulder

B-Section:
I am always amazed by you
I feel so complete
I have so much to say ‘bout you
I am never in need ‘cause you’re a…

Chorus:
Beautiful boy
Look in your eyes

Your heart’s so pure
I realize that your love is amazing V2
Each day with you is filled with joy
It’s something that I treasure
I simply couldn’t ask for more
You win on every measure

B-Section

I am always amazed by you
I feel so complete
I have so much to say ‘bout you
I am never in need because you’re a…

Bridge:
You’re so beautiful and I see
That you’re a part of me you’re my heartbeat
And you fill me with joy completely
I feel down in my soul you complete me

CAN’T LEAVE, CAN’T STAY

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1
Here we are at that same place again
Where we’ve been so many times before
We’re here again, still questioning
If we should be together
It’s so much easier to just pretend
It’s alright, all the pain we can just ignore
I’d like to know, should I stay or go?
There is no easy answer

Chorus:
I can’t leave but I can’t stay
I’m so confused
Cuz it’s so hard to walk away
I can’t believe that I feel this way
My mind’s confused
Cuz I can’t leave and I can’t stay

V2
Can we sit down and talk?
Cuz I just can’t go on like this
I must insist, cuz I’m not convinced
That we can go on much longer

B-Section:
Confusion turns us into strangers
Can we work this out and make it stronger?
And in time can we come closer
Can we find the answer?
back to the top

COME CLOSER

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1
Have you heard the news today?
There’s just so many problems
It’s a shame what some people will say
That you’re different from me
And so we cannot solve them

Chorus:
Look at me look at you
There’s a difference you see
But it don’t even matter
Where you’re from
Where I’m born
We all wanna be free
We got to come closer

V2
Don’t you know when you’re all alone
It seems like there’s a mountain to climb
On our own divided we fall
So united we stand as we drink
From the fountain of life

Bridge:
And so let’s go
Down to the place
Where we all show
The world that together
We can all flow
As one people we can all grow
We’ve got to come closer
back to the top

CONFUSED

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1

I feel a challenge in my soul today
Questioning things I believed in so firmly yesterday
How can I have faith in myself and what I feel to be true
When the next day I feel my heart and mind telling me something new
I feel the twisting of my soul today
Something is challenging my perceptions
And what I’m going through is hard
And I admit, right now I’m not O.K. So…

Chorus:

Right now, I am confused
Right now, I don’t exactly know what to choose
This day feels so unlike the rest
Right now, I am confused

V2

I feel a burden in my spirit today
Feels like everything that I’ve ever trusted in
Has been washed away
I feel like I’m grappling for the truth
Don’t understand decisions that I made while in my youth
In my mind I know I gotta live with what I’ve chosen
But in my heart I struggle
‘Cuz I can’t live with a heart that’s frozen
Inside my heart and soul just want to fly

Bridge:

All my questions came to late
I don’t get a chance to reevaluate?
Can not bear to live with choices I made
Gonna make a change Feel a change in my soul today
Gonna let the past fade away
Won’t be confused no more
back to the top

DRIFTING

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1
We used to talk at least once a day
And sometimes twice on Tuesdays
The weekends brought some fun and some games
And laughter shared in our way

Pre-Chorus 1:
But now there’s dark clouds heading our way
They’re clouding the horizon Chorus:
Are we drifting away from what we had
Oooh Oooh
And where are all those sunny days
We used to have, oooh oooh, oooh

V2
When things began we thought they would stay
A certain way forever
We couldn’t have known life would get in the way
And we would turn into strangers
Pre-Chorus 2
What did get in our way?
It’s clouding the horizon Bridge:
So let me ask
Could we go back to a time
To those simple days
When mine was yours
And yours was mine
And nothing got in our way
back to the top

ELECTRICITY

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1

No mistaking how I feel, my heart is racing
It’s not my imagination
I can hardly stand the waiting
And I hope I can reciprocate the way that
You go out of your way to show how
You feel about me and I know now

Chorus:
Look at me
Don’t take your eyes away
And you’ll see
What I have for you’s beyond ecstasy
Come baby, baby let’s go deep
Feel the electricity

V2
Let’s go round before you go
There’s some things I’d like to show
If you would like to lose control
And so let’s not fight it
Let’s go down this road and try to find it
That electric zone full of surprises
I’ve just lost control
And I can’t hide it

B-Section:
Look at me
Don’t you want to see
Beyond ecstasy
Baby, baby let’s go deep
E-le-ca-tri-ci-ty

FLY BIRD, FLY

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1
Come and talk to me my sunshine
About the way life can be
There’s many roads that you can travel
But the one you choose should be your dream

B-Section 1:
Others will try to shape you
Plan out your destiny
But listen to your voice and fly

Chorus:
Fly bird, fly
Take to the sky
Spread your wings and fly
Fly, fly bird fly
Spread your wings and fly

V2
I didn’t trust my own opinion
Gave up the keys to what became of me
Now looking back on my decisions
It’s a shame I didn’t follow my own dreams

B-Section 2:
Fly away to your rainbow
Make your journey your own
back to the top

FOREVER

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1
It started off the same way that most things do
Just an ordinary day, in an ordinary way
Yet unexpectedly I’m here with you
It’s a place I’d like to stay
I’m surprised to say that

Chorus:
I hope that this lasts forever
Let’s go down this path together

V2
I had stored my broken heart away upon the shelf
I had no idea that I would find somebody else
It’s true, that I was down in the dark
It’s you, that brought back the spark

Bridge:
I’m so glad you’re here now
Let’s stay together
I feel turned around, warm inside
I hope forever

back to the top

GOTTA LET YOU KNOW

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1

Out of the corner
I’m stepping out on a limb
To let you know
How I feel about you
My thinking is sober
I’d hate to act on a whim
But I finally know how I feel
About you

Chorus:
Even if I make a fool of myself
Believing that there’s some kind of mutual feeling
I might as well try to find the meaning
Of the word love
Gotta let you know

V2
Over my shoulder
I’ve caught your eye once or twice
But it’s hard to tell what you’re thinking of me
But I can’t let go of ya without a try
So it’s now that I’ll make my move
Though I don’t know the ending
So I’ll make my move

Bridge:
I’m stepping out on a limb
Don’t know where this is going
Here’s my heart opening
It’s full and overflowing

HOLD YOUR HEAD UP HIGH

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1
It’s not the way you thought that it should be You did not win
It feels like there’s no light, no
A different ending you could not foresee
It dragged you in, oh yes it did

Pre-Chorus
You’ve lost your way
A steep price to pay
Strength should prevail
There’s always tomorrow
A new day will follow

Chorus:
So hold your head up high
So hold your head up high

V2
You’ve got to play the hand that you’re given You can’t complain
You move on, stay strong, yeah
You make the path that leads to your heaven It’s not in vain, life’s lessons learned

Pre-Chorus
You’ll find your way
That price you’ll pay
Strength will prevail
A new day’s tomorrow
And others will follow

Chorus:

So hold your head up high
So hold your head up high

Bridge:

You gotta hold your head up high
It will be alright
Oh yes it will
Cuz all you can do is try
You got to dry your eyes

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1

I wanna write you a letter

Spice and some sugar, oh baby

Make a plan, come on over

Bridge:

I APOLOGIZE

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1
I never meant to say those words
The look on your face said you were hurt
I apologize
For the tone in my voice
I apologize
For the words of my choice

Chorus:
It’s a longer day that I have to face when I’ve hurt you
And it’s a longer way that I have trace
Back to find you

V2
I know that you say I should speak my mind
The wrong words sometimes sound so unkind
I apologize
For the pain I’ve caused
I apologize
Now I’ll pay the cost

Bridge:
I see you’ve taken off
Deep inside your shell you’ve gone now
But I feel bad enough
Can I get you out to talk now
It’s a devastating kind of pain
When you’re completely out of range
So I apologize again
So let’s get back and turn the page
back to the top

INSIDE YOUR SOUL

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1
Some days I feel like I’m talking to myself
Even when you’re there
It seems like you would rather be somewhere else
Somewhere far from here

B-Section 1:
Please open up the door, don’t be afraid to show

Chorus:
You talk, we talk
But you don’t show
You’re devoid of all emotion
You say the words but I don’t know
What’s inside your soul

V2

I can’t be sure that it has to do with me
Cuz you won’t explain
It’s hard to know just exactly what you need
Yet I try each day

B-Section 2:

Each time I need you more you shove me out the door
It would be nice to know what is inside your soul

Bridge:
Let me in and let’s share together
It’s a shame that you locked me out
We’re a team and we can solve whatever
I just need to hear you shout

V1
Today is a new day
I’m waving goodbye to yesterday
I’m summoning all the good vibes my way
I’m basking in the warmth of the sun rays today

La La La it’s a beautiful day
Things are going my way
Nothings’s gonna bring me down
La La La it’s a beautiful day

Surrounded by a positive embrace
I’m taking this ride at my own pace today

Bridge:

Feeling all my power in the now
It’s a beautiful day

Things are going my way
Simple things are all I need to thrive

I KNEW YOU WERE THE ONE

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1
I’ve loved you since the day your eyes met mine
But I didn’t even know it at the time
And now I’m here in your arms
I took a chance and walked through the open door
And every day since then I’ve loved you more
Cuz you bring me joy and I’ll never let go

Chorus:
I knew you were the one
When I looked at that picture taken from
that place, soaking in the sun
Was the moment I knew you were the one

V2
You were the one that was always by my side
And you always found a way to make me smile
And it was you that was always standing by
And I know I’ve told you many times before
That I’ve found a love that’s truly touched my soul
And that’s for sure
I’ve always known
back to the top

IN MY DREAMS

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1
Even though we said good-bye quite some time ago
There’s a strand of love in my heart
That just can’t let you go
It seems that even when I go to sleep
Images of you my mind still keep

Chorus:

And I still see you in my dreams
No matter how I try it seems
That a deep part of me just can’t forget
That a big part of me still has regrets
And I can’t seem to let all the love I had for you go
Yes, I still see you in my dreams

V2

Sometimes I wake with your face in my mind
Somehow I thought that I’d left those memories behind
It seems that you have left my heart frustrated
With vivid memories your smile created
back to the top

IN YOUR ARMS AGAIN

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1
I remember standing there
Compelled by the grip of your stare
Wanting you to hold me forever
No words were said, instead
It’s like we knew that you’d never stop loving me
And I, I’d never stop loving you

Chorus:

If I could be in your arms again
I’d say the things I wanted to say
I’d tell you I love you
And that I never wanted you to go away
If I could be in your arms again
I’d never let you go
That’s the way it would be
If I could be in your arms again

V2

I remember standing there
The soft breeze blowing slightly through my hair
Entranced, we were- of time, we weren’t aware
No words were spoken, yet, our hearts were broken
As we realized that to survive
We could never look into Each other’s eyes again

Bridge:

The power of this gentle stare
Has touched us, made us aware
Even though our hearts say yes
We must beware, avert the gaze, there’s too much power
The power of this forbidden gaze
Is dangerous, we must beware
That’s why we had to turn away
back to the top

I WONDER

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1
She looked cold and she shivered
Even though the sun was shining down
Life, it roared on despite her
But she couldn’t even hear the sound
I could tell by the wrinkled lines
Like a map criss-crossing her face
She had seen much and I wondered
What had brought her here to this place

Pre-chorus1:

It’s amazing what this life can put you through
Yes it is
There’s a choice to make in all the things you do

Chorus:
I wonder what brought her to this place
Is it memories gone without a trace
Seems as though she’s lost in time and space
I wonder

V2
She just stared straight ahead
Like she was trying to concentrate
Maybe if she could focus
She would open her memory floodgate
Something strange seemed to possess her
And it would not let her go
Searching deep down inside her
To find a feeling she had once known

Pre-Chorus2:

And I wonder what this life has put her through
Yes I do
And I wish that there was something I could do
back to the top

LA, LA, LA-LA

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1
We fit together
So neatly
Nice and easy
Feels so nice
It’s paradise
And it feels like…

Chorus:

La, la, la, la-la, la

V2
Ebb and flow
Here we go together
In flight
It feels right
Let’s hold on tight
Cuz it sounds like…

LEAVES ARE TURNING

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1
Love came
Soft as a breeze in May
It was whispering my name
Moons came
Lighting the season’s change
To a secret shore, we sailed away
And now

Chorus:

Leaves are turning once again
Here we are at summer’s end
Wading through the tides of time
Another season comes and goes
Leaves once green will turn to gold
Time won’t break the tie that binds

V2

One mind
When two hearts and souls combine
Brought together by a sacred tie
Sweet wine
I taste when your lips touch mine
Each sip I take gets better with time

Bridge:

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh
Leaves are turning once again
Here we are at summer’s end
Wading through the tides of time
Leaves are turning once again
Another season comes and goes
Leaves once green will turn to gold
Time won’t break the tie that binds
Leaves are turning once again

LET THE CANDLE BURN

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1
I can feel your tension baby
Sense that you need some relief
Let me ease your burden
Come lie down on these sheets
Let me take your clothes off
And rub your body good
You know that I love you baby
I’d do anything for you
Yes, you know I would
I’ll light a candle and let it burn
Wax melting slow, candlelight glow

Chorus:

Let the candle burn baby
All the way down tonight
I can sense you need me
I’ma make everything a’ight
Just watch the candle burn
Melting nice and slow
I’ma make it betta baby
I just want you to know

V2
Do you know what joy I feel
When I ease your strain
Makes me feel all warm baby
When you feel happy
Cast your cares aside
Throw your thoughts into the wind
Every pleasure baby
Lovingly I will provide
I’ll light a candle and let it burn
Wax melting slow, candlelight glow

Bridge:
I’ll light a candle
Let it burn up slow
Watch the wax melt down
Let the candles glow
We can take our time shuga
Take it slow
‘Cuz there ain’t no where to go
Burn, Burn all the way down tonight
Burn, burn, I’ll make everything right

LET’S JUST WASTE SOME TIME

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1
Morning sunshine paints the sky
The night’s a lingering goodbye
And I’m so glad we got away
From the same old day-to-day
Making footsteps in the sand, me and you
As we gather scattered seashells
Touched by morning dew, woah-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh…

Chorus:
Let’s just waste some time today
Let’s just stay away
From the world today
Woah, let’s just leave the world behind
Let’s just waste some time
Baby, let’s unwind

V2

Far away from prying eyes
The ocean bears its cool surprise
We’re basking in this perfect day
Until the moon lights up our way
And we’re walking hand in hand, me and you
There’s a feeling that this moment
Is a dream come true

Breakdown:
Let’s waste some time
Let’s just waste some time
Let’s take some time away
Take a ride on the wild side
Let’s just waste some time
Let’s take some time away
Get away from prying eyes
Let’s just waste some time
Let’s take some time away
Let’s just waste some time
Let’s take some time away
Take a ride on the wild side
Let’s just waste some time
Let’s take some time away
Get away from prying eyes

LOCKED IN THE SHADOWS

Natalie Brown & Umojah Dwight Butler

V1

I’m in your shadows constantly
You never allow me to be free
Can’t even express my own opinion
‘Cause I’m controlled by your dominion
I am locked in the shadows of your love

Chorus:

I’m locked in the shadows of your love
There’s no escape, I’ll never reach above
I’m locked in the shadows of your love
I’ll never be the real me, you’ll never let me go free
I’m locked in the shadows of your love
I wish you’d let me go, let me be on my own
But I am locked in the shadows of your love

V2
I have endeavored many times
To escape your paralyzing ties
But it’s futile and it’s hopeless, why do I even try
You stole my heart so I can’t feel
And imprisoned it in a cage of steel
I’m locked in the shadows of your love

Bridge:
I wish I could be free
From all this insanity
I wish you would let me go
So that I could have a life that’s all my own

LOVE HAS FINALLY CALLED MY NAME

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1

Enchanted by your stare
Suddenly, I’m made unaware
Of the noises that surround us
And the traffic on the street
Baby, in my world right now
There’s just you and me
How I’ve longed for your embrace
It makes my heart race
To be dancing like this in your arms
So secure, so safe so warm
Even though the rain falls all around me

Chorus:
We are dancing outside
And the rain is falling down
And the downpour is twisting us around
‘Till we fall to the ground
Baby in your arms
I feel shelter from the storm
As we lie here drenched by rain
Love has finally called my name

V2

I wondered when it would happen
When love would call my name
And I knew that when it happened
I’d never be the same
And now my life is filled
With streams of dreams and stardust
Knowing that forever
Your heart will beat with mine
Baby it’s no mystery I’m as in love with you
As you are with me
Dancing in the street as the rain falls

Bridge:

Flooded by desire
And passion flows so free
Never experienced this joy I feel
As you’re lying here with me

MORE TODAY THAN YESTERDAY

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara
Rap by Jeremy Boucher & John Willis (High Intent)

V1

I love it when you hold me
When your loving arms enfold me
I’m so captured by your love
It’s such a sweet gift from up above
I know that you’re attracted
By the sweet scent of my perfume
I can feel your stare pierce through me
I can sense you all around the room

Chorus:

I love you more today than yesterday
Believe this vow of love I make
No one will ever come between us
My vow of love will never break
Yes my love, it’s true I’ll stay

V2

When you say you’ll be true to me
I’ll be faithful too boy, you will see
You make me quiver wild with joy
‘Cuz I know that I’m your girl and you’re my boy
You’re my pride and joy of life
I wanna be your loving wife
Forevermore we’ll be as one
And we will know that the work of love is done

Bridge:

You’re the one I long for, baby
You’re the one I need
So believe me when I tell you
I love you more today than yesterday

RAP

I’m on the phone and on my lap I feel my pager snap
I think it’s Nat, Flow I’ll have to hit you back (cool)
Cuz if it’s true what she’s saying
There’s no delaying
Oh the HI giving love through the spit
No oversprayin’ through rhyme we’re laying
Heavy prayin’ we make it happen
One day, we write with feather and ink
On silk and satin
This rap, is just a piece of the pie that I be bakin
While others be lost and waitin’
The Willis be out creatin’ now
Connect the dots combine the knots with Nat
We blow back obese stacks
Stay on point like tacs
When tracks get laid
Rhymes get sprayed with ease-a-bleeze
Is what we’re accustomed to
Don’t ever trust them fools
Stay on hit, make your own shit and bruise their ego
HI come with smooth flow
If you know, then do show love
Don’t bug out
JJ on deck in the dugout
We break south and blam
Knock the negative out your mouth
I love you more today

OUT THE DOOR

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1

Goodbye
We had our share of fun and good times
But there’s something missing here I feel like I
Should be somewhere else instead of here now
So I should let you know

Chorus:
It’s just a matter of time
Before I have to leave
For something I’ve got to find
That fulfills all my needs
I’m on my way out the door

V2
For sure we haven’t got a lot to show for
All the times we spent together, I know
But I’ve stayed as long as I can stay for
I ought to let you know that it’s just

Bridge:
There’s not much left to do
To save this
Let’s prepare to go

QUEEN OF ME

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1
She said, “9 to 5’s the way to make a living
Quit your dreaming, stop your scheming.”
He said, “95 pounds and you would be perfect
It would be worth it…” oooh and
You said, “if you wanna get ahead
Come on over, share my bed,
I can make it happen”
They said, “you gotta watch what you say
Choose your words carefully”
But I won’t be stopped, cuz I…

Chorus:

Do what I wanna do
Say what I wanna say
Play how I wanna play
I am the Queen of me (X2)

V2
Sticks and stones may break my bones
But words will never hurt me
I’ve heard all the rumors
They have spread about me
Not conforming… uh-oh and
I’ve seen what can happen to your dreams
If you follow the main stream
Without question
I’ve gone through out much of my life
Listening to the voice inside
And it tells me that I gotta do…

Bridge:

I gotta do what I please
I ain’t gonna hurt nobody
Cuz I live consciously
I am the Queen of me
And I live my life free
back to the top

RUN AWAY

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1
I’m gettin’ frustrated with the way you deal with things
You always withdraw from me, refuse to communicate
I don’t know how much more, more that I can take
I’ve given all I can, tried to give you everything
I’ve tried a thousand times
To get you to be real with me
You promise that you’ll change
That your priorities will rearrange
But I’m tired of the games
The silly way you play
I share my heart with you
In return all that you do is…

Chorus:
You just run away, just run away
Nothing to offer, no words to say
You just run away, just run away
You don’t deal with the problems at hand
You just run away, just run away
You don’t connect
With me you don’t stay
You just run away, you run away
You cop out and you run away

V2
You took some time off, took some time “to think”
But baby, behind my back I think you’re playing games
I waited by the phone for you to call today
But it didn’t ring I guess you don’t think of me when you’re away
You say you love me but your words and actions don’t justify
You just playin’ with my heart, do the least to get by
I can’t take anymore of you runnin’ out the door
Babe, I gave all that I have, but you don’t care cuz you just run away

Bridge:
I ain’t takin’ this no more
Gonna get out on my own
Out on my own gonna settle the score
I’ve played this game a thousand times
But baby this time it’s me who is breakin’ the ties
I’ve taken all I can, but no, no more

THINGS THAT YOU DO

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1
The rose you bring
That little thing
That makes me sing
So glad you’re mine
Your crazy ways
Color my days
Take me away
Oh what a ride
Your naughty talk
Strikes up a spark
Cuts through the dark
You turn me on
You turn my frown
Make silly sounds
Act like a clown
Dark days are gone

Pre-Chorus:
All the little things you do
Way you walk, way you talk
Baby by you I am moved
You make my life a dream come true
Wanna be, wanna see
Wanna live my life with you

Chorus:
Funny things
Silly things
Strange things
That you do
Crazy things
Kind things
Naughty things
That you do

V2
Fulfill my needs
Are what you seem
Say what you mean
Speak honestly
You don’t complicate
Insinuate
Things that you hate
You’re straight with me
Strange things you do
Draw me to you
Make you my boo
You’re so sublime
You wake me up
Hot coffee cup
Cream on the top
You are divine

Bridge:
You’re a truly precious find
Cuz your soul shines
Some would say this love is blind
But I don’t mind, no
Let them say the things they say
Cuz we won’t change
What we have just works this way

WHAT AM I DOING HERE?

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1

I’m up at the crack of dawn every morning
Eager to see what the day brings to me (I’m not sure what’s in store)
I’m looking at the plans I’ve drawn
And I’m really hoping
That things turn out the way
I planned them to be

Chorus:
What am I doing here?
What am I here for?
I’m listening to hear
I’m searching high and low

V2
The doors that are opening
Seem to lead somewhere
And I just go where they take me, away
And it feels like the journey’s long and slow
I’m spreading my energy, putting in my share, yeah
I hope I’m not wasting time or the space I’m in
back to the top

WHERE DO WE GO?

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1
Sometimes
I find myself thinking about our lives
It seems as though we’re lost in time
It’s a complicated answer to find, it seems
So I wonder where we go

Chorus:
Where do we go from here?
We’ve been together for a while you know, my dear
I’d like to get a little closer, so
Let’s move this relationship a little further down the road
Where do we go from here?

V2
So, where do you see the future?
Is it somewhere where together we can share
It’s a complicated answer my dear, it seems
And I wonder where we go

Bridge:
Where do we go from here?
Is it somewhere where we’ll go together?
And so where do we go from here?
Is it somewhere where we’ll grow?
back to the top

WHAT’S GOING ON NEXT DOOR?

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1
Here I go again
Covering my ears so I don’t hear it
(What a doggone shame)
Time and time again
I close my eyes
So I don’t see it
(It just feels insane)
But I wanna know

Chorus:
What’s goin’ on next door?
It’s hard to tell for sure
It’s not my business, no
What should I do?
What if that’s me next door?
Would I want you to know?
If I was hurting so
What should you do?

V2
It’s no concern of mine
But I could be mistaken
(It’s a chance I’ll take)
There might come a time
When it’s too late
Someone’s forsaken
(It’s a sad mistake)
Still, I wanna know

Bridge:

I need to know if I’m responsible for
My neighbor, or a stranger
But if I wait, it might be to late
For an answer
Wake up people this has got to STOP
back to the top

WIND AT MY BACK

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1

All of my life I never believed in myself
Or what I had to offer this world
Trust me when I say it has been hard to make it this far
I have my share of scars

V2

I’ve wandered near and far searching for purpose in life
I understand now that I have something to give
And I can not hesitate as I revaluate
I’ve finally opened my eyes

Chorus:

With the wind at my back
And the road ‘neath my feet
With the gifts I was given at birth
No one can take them
I will follow my dreams I will do what it takes
With the wind at my back and my dreams
No one can take them from me

V3

It is so very hard when your soul wakes up slow
You have to work over time to help it grow
And I have realized as I have awakened from my slumber
That even if it’s late, it’s better than never

Bridge:

It’s amazing how I could not see
All along strength lived in me
I have a gift that resides inside
This truth now, I can’t deny
I’ve struggled to make it this far
And no matter how hard
I have opened my eyes, I am whole
Blow wind blow, blow me on from here
Blow wind blow, blow away my fear
back to the top

YOU GOTTA BELIEVE

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1
You’ve been thinking about your life
And wondering what to do
You have some big dreams inside
But how do you see them through
When you don’t know where to go
To make a start
Tell ya what, listen to your heart
Focus on the prize, dreams will be realized
No matter what people say, keep going anyway

Chorus:

You gotta believe, believe in you
You gotta have faith, faith in all you do
You gotta stay strong, no matter what comes your way
Get on your knees so you won’t stray

V2

Sometimes when you
Have a dream to achieve
Things get rough and tight
But ya gotta believe
That if you stay in the game
You’ll come out on top
So give it your all, don’t ever stop
Focus on the prize, dreams will be realized
No matter what people say, keep going anyway

Bridge:

Focus so you won’t stray
No matter what people will say
Keep on goin’ do your best
Know that you will be blessed

YOU PIERCED MY SOUL

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1
Sometimes I feel like I’m standing naked before you
Even though I’m fully clothed
Do you know what it feels like to have someone staring inside you
Someone you barely know
And that someone can look inside your soul
And face you with your deepest fears
You’ve seen what no one else has seen
What is it that you want me to feel?
And I have never known a feeling such as this
And it doesn’t take a touch
Not even a simple kiss
What is it that you are doing to me?
What is it that you’re trying to make me see?

Chorus:

You pierced my soul
Now I am aware
I’m not fully whole
I can’t deny
Something inside
I’ve yet to find
Your eyes have made me aware
Now I have no control
Because you, because you pierced my soul

V2

And it’s not even a sexual thing you do
It’s something that I can’t describe
And even though I feel scared inside
Somehow you make it all alright
And I know it’s going to be a journey
And the pain is just a part of it all
But I think that you will be there for me
If somehow I start to fall
And I have never known a feeling such as this
And it doesn’t take a touch
Not even a simple kiss
What is it that you are doing to me?
What is it that you’re trying to make me see?
back to the top

YOU MAKE ME FEEL

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1
From the first day that we met
I knew we were meant for each other
And now I can’t imagine
Being with any other
You came into my world, so unexpectedly
I never thought I’d find someone
Who I could love for eternity
You put your hand in mine
I love that you can read my mind
Anticipate my every need
With you I wanna be

Chorus:
You make me feel
The way that a woman should feel
You give the kind of love that is real
Yes, I sense it inside
You make me feel
So complete, it’s right
And I wanna love you for life
Yes, you make me feel

V2
It wasn’t so long ago
That I felt unloved and alone
You walked into my life
A bright star to give me light
You give the respect that I need
Baby, I feel like your queen
Seems when we’re together
Time is still, we are in heaven
The things you do for me
So precious and so sweet
Ecstasy is what I feel
When it’s you and me

Bridge:
Yes, when you’re with me
I feel that I can do anything
Baby, when you kiss me
I feel the way that a woman should feel
back to the top

YOU’RE MYSTERIOUS

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1
You’re mysterious
I wonder what’s behind you smile
I wish that you would stay sometime
Ooooh, Ooooh
It would be so nice
You’re mysterious
A shadow in my dreams, sublime
A misty rain that falls so fine
Oooooh, Oooooh
Caressing me

Chorus:

Will you let me inside
Be a part of your life
And your light
Let’s begin
We could write our own song
Make the melody strong
We belong
Let me in

V2
You’re mysterious
I wonder if I catch your eye
And do you even notice when I smile
At you
As you walk on by
It’s mysterious
This feeling that you’re part of me
A glimpse of what our love could be
If we were together
back to the top

YOU’RE SO GOOD TO ME

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1
You’re the sunshine in my day
So excited by your moves
By your every way
But I can’t seem to find the perfect way
To say I want your love with me every day

Chorus:

You’re so good to me baby
Wanna tell you that lately
Can’t seem to get you out of my mind
You’re so good to me baby

V2

You’re the moonlight in my night
My heart’s been acting crazy
And my tongue is playing lazy
I’m positive that this love is so right
Gotta find a way to tell you
That I am yours tonight

Bridge:

Gotta find a way to tell you
That I want us to be forevermore
No Just can’t help it, baby
‘Cuz my heart’s begun to soar
You, You’ve been so good to me
And I, been thinking about ya lately
back to the top

YOU’RE SO INTO YOU

Natalie Brown & Jeremy Rwakaara

V1
You put me down again
You took advantage
Like you do, when you feel low
Seems you have no shame
Switchin’ the spotlight
Back to you
It’s always your show
You’re so into you

Chorus:
You’re so into you
You’re narcissistic, everything’s about you
Can’t you see that it’s true
Uh, oh, and you’re so vain
Everything that you do
It all revolves around you
It’s always all about you

V2
Fail to see that you
Push aside other peoples’ views
Like they don’t count
Just can’t let you do
All the things
That have gotten you through
Up until now

Bridge:
Your chains won’t hold me down no more
You’re so into you
It’s always all about you, all the time
And you’re so vain, it’s painful
It probably doesn’t occur to you
Cuz you’re so into you
