Near the End

And when you fell you're near the end
Will you just turn it over and start again?
Is there a stirring in your heart
As the time comes when we will have to part?
And when you feel you're near the end
And there's a stranger where once was a friend
And you are left without a word
Only the whispers that you've overheard
Standing in silence, holding my breath
Disconnected and dry
And though I'm certain that there's nothing left
To hold on to, to give or to try
Some things never change, no don't ever change
And I'm feeling the cold
Thinking that we're getting older and wiser
When we're just getting old
And when you feel you're near the end
And what once burned so bright is growing dim?
And when you see what's been achieved
Is there a feeling that you've been deceived?

All My Friends

[Intro]
All my friends are coming over (over)

[Verse 1]
I wanna see all my friends
Chilling in the backyard
Doing what we want tonight again (Hey)
You know I wanna see you there
In your white jeans
Looking like a daydream that came to life (Ay)
Everybody's on their way so
What you waiting for?

[Pre-Chorus]
All my friends are coming over
And we ain't stopping 'til the street lights are shutting down
So come on and just stick with me girl for a minute
It's gonna be a wild ride admit it, 'cause
All my friends are coming over, over now

[Chorus]
All my friends are coming over (over)
All my friends are coming over

[Verse 2]
You know we're gonna live it up
We'll be non-stop rocking
And we can't start stopping 'til we get enough (Hey)
But I see you standing across the room
Do you notice me
Like I notice you?
Everybody's getting crazy
What you waiting for?

[Pre-Chorus]
All my friends are coming over
And we ain't stopping 'til the street lights are shutting down
So come on and just stick with me girl for a minute

And we ain't stopping 'til the street lights are shutting down
You're only young for so long, so bring it
We only got one life, let's live it
All my friends are coming over (over) now

[Outro]
All my friends are coming over (over)
Ay, ay, ay

All my friends are coming over, over now

[Intro]
(Zaytoven)

New persona, we're moving on from Ferragamo (I'm moving on)
Get the llama, I party with the real Madonna (yeah)

Drop top Porsches, I'm so used to this
Smoking out the pound, I'm so used to this
I know where I'm from and I got used to this
Mansion in the hills, I got used to this

[Verse 1: Future]
Shake your booty bitches, I got used to this
There's Iceland in my wrist, I done got used to this
Tropicana bitches, I got all kinda flavors
Selling dope all my life, I can't do minimum wage (nah)
Dirty-dirty muddy, I got used to this (gang)
I give you my heart till there ain't nothing to give (Future)
You know I fuck with Game if you know where we been (Freebandz)
How many niggas you know can just hop in the Benz?
Be honest to yourself, don't you ever pretend (tell 'em)
Don't ever play yourself, know when it all begins (you know)
I had to put my back against the wall (and what?)
Tell me that I don't deserve to ball

[Hook: Future]
Mexicano, working like I'm Mexicano
New persona, we're moving off of Ferragamo

Mansion in the hills, I got used to this

[Verse 2: Drake]
Lambo come alive man, I'm used to this
No one looks surprised cause we used to this
I'ma make sure that we get used to this
Treat my brother's kids like they one of my kids
Never looking back on it, we did what we did
Could never find the time for the people I miss
Thought they had my back against the wall
Tell me that I don't deserve to ball
Well then tell me who deserve it
Eyes getting low but I'm still observing
I see you lurking
Never see me out in person
I'm always working
Money on your head if you make a nigga nervous
Never made a move out here unless I was certain
Tatted on me, but this shit is deeper than the surface
I'm with everyone that I was here with in the first place
Making sure that they all good before they close the curtain

[Hook: Future]
Mexicano, working like I'm Mexicano (skrt)
New persona, we're moving off of Ferragamo

Smoking out the pound, I'm so used to this (smoke)
I know where I'm from and I got used to this (ay)
Mansion in the hills, I got used to this (Future)

Ohh-oh, ohh-ohhh

Work On It

(Work on it, work on it, work on it baby)

Oh baby
Some may think that we moved too fast
But I know you and you know me
And yeah baby, that's what makes it last

And oh darling
So many lies were spread about us
Oh that's the heartache, that's the heartache
That makes us build all our trust

I know some people like to say
That the easiest way is to fake it
But we gonna make it
If we try

Gotta promise not to abuse it
If you use it, don't lose it or break it
'Cause we gonna make it
You and I

When they see us coming they gon' say
Oh oh oh
(When they see us coming they gon' say)
Oh oh oh yeah
Work on it, work on it, work on it baby

Some days are hard, there ain't no easy way
No matter how we try, nobody's perfect
(Work on it, work on it, work on it baby)
But if we just love each other through it all
Baby know that, that makes it worth it
(Work on it, work on it, work on it baby)

I know some people like to say
That the easiest way is to fake it
But we gonna make it
If we try

Gotta promise not to abuse it
If you use it, don't lose it or break it
We gonna make it
You and I, I

When they see us coming they gon' say
Oh oh oh
(When they hear us coming they gon' say)
Oh oh oh
Work on it, work on it, work on it baby

When they feel us coming
Oh oh oh
(They gonna say oh)
Oh oh oh
(When they feel us coming they gon' say)
Oh oh oh
Work on it, work on it, work on it baby

Oh we're gonna work on it, baby
Me and you
We gonna work on it baby

St. Andrew's Fall

Big stretch and not much sleep
I got a couple of plam trees on each side of my cheek
And it's a bright blue Saturday
And the rummage sells the rubbish to me

But if I could buy the sky that's hangin'
Over this bed of mine
If I could climb these vines
And maybe see what you're seein'

If you were standing on the corner staring straight
Into the eyes of Jesus Christ

One porch, one dog, one cockroach only way to be
I got sewage fruit and it's growing out back from roots
I don't know if they belong to me
But if I could buy the sky that's hangin'

Over this bed of mine
And if I could climb these vines
and maybe see what you're seein'

Sittin' at the edge of this building,
Twenty stories below,
A' twenty stories below
Twenty stories below
Twenty stories below

I can't tell you how many ways that I've sat,
And viewed my life today, but I can tell you
I don't think that I can find easier way
So if I see you walking hand in hand in hand
With a three armed man, you know I'll understand

(Pockets full of crappiness
Can't piece together my day
So I pose myself this question
Maybe sleeps gonna get me in the shade
I got my head buried in this pillow
I got my head buried in this pillow
So low...)

But you should have been in my shoes yesterday
You should have been in my shoes yesterday

The Beginning (Interlude)

I feel like history on the turntables
Old school to new school
Like nothing ever been realer
On the history of the turntables
I'm the mystery of what's inside the speaker cables
I'm Nina Simone in the park in Harlem in the dark
I'm the musical to the project fables
I'm the words scratched out on the record label
I'm the wind when the record spins
I'm the dramatic static before the song begins
I'm the erratic energy that gets in your skin
And if you don't let me in
I'm the shot in the air when the party ends

She Don't Really Care_1 Luv

She grew up in Brooklyn
She grew up in Harlem
She grew up in Bronx
She knows she was a queen
She lived in Queens
She don't really care
She don't really care
She want them diamonds in her ear
Diamonds in the air

She lived in Somalia
Her parents from Egypt
She was a queen in Cairo
She don't really care
She don't really care
She want them diamonds in her ear
Diamonds in the air

She picking all the wrong ones
As she looking for the right one
In the wrong place
You remember her face
The prettiest face, the prettiest face
She looking for fulfillment
You would think she was looking for love
Searching for love
She just looking to be taken care of

You could find her in Harlem, or Brooklyn
You could find her in Brixton, or Kingston
She's a queen
Know what I mean
She think she want a baby
And she do it with the wrong one
'Cause she looking for something
But he don't really care
He don't really care
And life just isn't fair

She grew up in Brooklyn
She grew up in Harlem
She grew up in Bronx
She knows she was a queen
She lived in Queens
She don't really care
She don't really care
She want them diamonds in her ear
Diamonds in the air

She lived in Somalia (talk about it)
Her parents from Egypt
She was a queen in Cairo (she's a queen)
She don't really care
She don't really care
She want them diamonds in her ear
Diamonds in the air

Brooklyn, yeah
You think she loves you, but she don't
You got to wake up, open your eyes
See the way it really is
Brooklyn, New York, the Bronx
(Harlem baby) New York
(Brooklyn baby) New York
(The city) You think she loves you
She take you for everything you got
You gotta remember that (The Big Apple)
New York City
Brooklyn, Harlem, the Bronx
Gotta wake up, brother
Wake up, wake up, wake up
Open up your eyes
Realize the truth, watch your step
Brother, watch your step, brother
Move it to the left, move it to the right
Outta sight
Better go home
New York City, watch it

It's the truth, it's the damn truth
It's the live truth, the live truth, yeah
It's where the life, yeah

All along I've ignored what I've always known
That the chair I been sitting on is a throne
Perfection kneels at the seed of my soul

Tell the truth, it can't get no better
Swear to life, it can't get no better, oh no
By the way, I been meaning to thank you
By the way, I been meaning to thank you all along

One love, one love, one love, one love
One love, one love, one love, one love
One love, one love, one love, one love
One love, one love, one love, one love

All along I was hoping understanding would be born
I was looking for knowledge to sing my song
But now I know that I am wisdom on my own

Tell the truth, it can't get no better
Swear to life, it can't get no better, oh no
By the way, I been meaning to thank you
By the way, I been meaning to thank you all along

One love, one love, one love, one love
One love, one love, one love, one love
One love, one love, one love, one love
One love, one love, one love, one love

Kill Your Mama

Shame on us
All your sons and daughters
Thieve all your gold
And we poisoned all your waters
Every piece of our soul is for sale
Now they bought us
Think we know it all
Then look where it got us

Oh, mama, mama
Oh, mama, mama
We're crying to the wind

Trying to play God
We been fucking with genetics
All that you have given
And we only disrespected
The rate that we're going
Premature Armageddon
That's what gonna happen if we let it

Oh, mama, mama
Oh, mama, mama
We're crying to the wind

Is there any saving us
We've become so dangerous
Is there any changing us
Even for the sake of love
How you gonna kill your mama
When mama's only gonna love you to the grave

Killing ourselves
Falling down with a sickness
Money is the king
It's a dirty bloody business
There will be no trial
But the child will always witness
If we are in love with hell
Why the hell would heaven visit

Oh, mama, mama
Oh, mama, mama
We're crying to the wind

When mama gets the belt
You gon' wish we didn't do it
Had your chance for redemption
But you fucking blew it
Now the weather is changing
And the hurricane is moving
Right in your direction
What direction are you choosing

Oh, mama, mama
Oh, mama, mama
Forgive us for your pain

Is there any saving us
We've become so dangerous
Is there any changing us
Even for the sake of love
How you gonna kill your mama
When mama's gonna love you to the grave

To the grave
How you gonna kill your mama
How you gonna kill your mama

The Gospel

I said we're all God's children, products of the ghetto
Momma cooked the soup, daddy did the yelling
Uncle was a drunk, cousin was a felon
When he got pinched, he told them he wasn't tellin'
Auntie was a cook, her husband was a crook
Cause every job he had they be payin' him off the books
Ghetto University, knowledge is all it took
In the tenement I was listenin' to the hook
Change gon' come, the spirit of Sam Cooke
When the Feds coming, everybody be shook
Now we doing life like Eddie Murphy and Martin
On the chain gang, I was singing into the coffin

The roaches and the rats, heroin and the crasp
Couldn't blame me, I'm just giving the facts
Tryna hit the top, the bottom ain't where it's at
Everybody got a path but you could never go back

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Sing yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Sing yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Sing yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Sing yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I'm telling you like it is, how we ever gon' live?
If we ain't gettin' money, how we feedin' the kids?
It's a revolving door, when brothers be doing bids
I know it sound wrong but the dope'll be what it is
Survival of the fittest, this poor girl the illest
Broke mirrors and black cats give me heebie-geebies
Life seems hard, nothing ever comes easy
Whatever's in the dark, won't always become the light
If you ain't in a battle, how you gon' win the fight?
Gotta speak the truth when I'm up in the booth
The streets be flyin' birds but they don't be on the roof
Poverty is a pain like you pulling a tooth
Told the streets don't let me go like I'm bishop and juice

The roaches and the rats, heroin and the cracks
Couldn't blame me, I'm just giving the facts
Tryna hit the top, the bottom ain't where it's at
Everybody got a path but you could never go back

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(Sing)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(Gotta sing)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(She's a king)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (yeah)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (yeah)
And they sing New York City
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Pawn It All

I would pawn you my watch
I would pawn you my chain
I would pawn you this golden diamond ring
'Cause I need it so bad
I would give you everything
Just so I could start my life over again

Sometimes you gotta let it go
Just to make it possible
Sometimes you gotta do it
Be willing to lose it
Freedom has no price, you know
Thinking how we gonna make it now
How we gonna feed the babies now
We gonna make it through it
God gonna see to it
Just get up and do it now

I would pawn you my watch
I would pawn you my chain
I would pawn you this golden diamond ring
'Cause I need it so bad
I would give you everything
Just so I could start my life over again

Get on up (hey)
Get on up (hey)
Get on up (hey)
Get on up (hey)
Get on up

See, I learned the hard way
Now I'm doing it in my way
'Cause life is too short to fall in New York
Can't get up and get away
So I gotta let it all go
Start back from zero
'Cause I give it up, I don't give a fuck
'Cause love is my hero

I would pawn you my watch
I would pawn you my chain
I would pawn you this golden diamond ring
'Cause I need it so bad
I would give you everything
Just so I could start my life over again

I would pawn you my watch
I would pawn you my chain
I would pawn you this golden diamond ring
'Cause I need it so bad
I would give you everything
Just so I could start my life over again

Extreme

Bottles gettin' low, bodies gettin' high
In the neon lights and the pink sky
I don't even know where you've been before
But I'll make it like it's your first time, your first time

'Cause you've got something bright
In those dark eyes
Mess me up,
just please don't apologize

I like it extreme
Even more than you like it in your dreams
So just take me, take me to extremes
Only you know exactly what I mean
So just take me, take me

And you know that I like it
And you know, and you know, and you know
Baby take me to extremes
Only you, only you, only you know

Bottles gettin' low, bodies gettin' high
In the neon lights and the pink sky

But I'll make it like it's your first time, your first time

'Cause you've got something bright
In those dark eyes
Mess me up,
just please don't apologize

I like it extreme
Even more than you like it in your dreams
So just take me, take me to extremes
Only you know exactly what I mean
So just take me, take me

And you know that I like it
And you know, and you know, and you know
Baby take me to extremes
Only you, only you, only you know

Empires on Fire

Love, it's in my veins
Under a darkened sky we meet again! Like a ghost, you're walking through me
There are times when all I feel is pain! I'm tired of walking alone
Won't you stay?
I need you here by my side

Empires on fire
Two worlds collide
When the blind lead the blind
Through the darkness shine
Empires on fire
I watch the flames grow higher

Love, it's on your lips
From the edge your life slowly slips
From the dark you make your way
Down the lonely road where we used to play
This time I won't let rage draw the line! Between what's yours
And what is mine

Empires on fire
Two worlds collide
When the blind lead the blind
Through the darkness shine
Empires on fire
I watch the flames grow higher

Wide awake when the wolves cry
Staring straight in the whites of there eyes
Somewhere out in the lost life
You find...
Love is not weak or blind

Love is lying wide awake
Underneath every breath that you take
Satisfied to throw your stones
Across the border to our homes
Now I see what I have lost
And I know I must pay the cost
To love you like I used to do
Let the morning shine through

Slow down

And you really get inside the groove

Take my breath away

Burning lights
Hang over head
Body high
Swimming in my bed
We ignite
We're slipping like sand

Don't you know you excite me like that
When you touch me like that
Got me running right back
Want it, want it, want it, want it, and I want it now (want it now)
I'm gonna, I'm gonna, I'm gonna, I'm gonna show you how

Take my breath away
Take my breath away
Take my breath away
Take my breath away
Take my breath away

Take my breath away
Take my breath away

Higher heights
To shallow breaths
Holding tight
Never, never end
Pull me down
To ecstasy

Don't you know you excite me like that
When you touch me like that
Got me running right back
Want it, want it, want it, want it, and I want it now (want it now)
I'm gonna, I'm gonna, I'm gonna, I'm gonna show you how

Take my breath away

I Am Cannibal

Stick your face into the mouth of an animal
Just to feel the warmth of its breath
Simulate the soul of a criminal
Just to make your way on this earth
Stick your face into the mouth of an animal
Just to feel wala wala lala

And ride
Ride through the stormy affairs
and ride
Ride through the shitty days
and ride
Ride across the mind's delay
and ride
Ride over the highest wave

Chase the sun and gather speed you're the animal
Tame a wave and rise high on its crest
Show your teeth and crazy eyes of a cannibal
Wave goodbye and feel it burn on your chest
Show your teeth and crazy eyes of a cannibal
Wave goodbye and feel it burn on your chest

And ride
Ride through the stormy affairs
and ride
Ride through the shitty days
and ride
Ride across the mind's delay
and ride
Ride over the highest wave

Believer

[Verse 1: Freetown Collective]
When the valley couldn't hold me, they throw me in the river
Thinking I would drown, but man ah good swimmer, whoa
When the river didn't drown me, they throw me in the fire
But the fire just cool, I could never burn, oh

Cause I'm a believer, I'm a believer
I'm a believer, I'm a believer

Hold up, pull up

When the valley couldn't hold me, they throw me in the river

Ode To The Absent Father

Well you want me to be
Your daddy
Check how the light of the room
Hits your body
I’ll take you to bed
Read you stories
If you promise that I’ll be the one
Be your only

Go on look to the stars
For the answer
Your image I’ve painted with love
You’re a dancer
I’ll take you with me
When it’s over
I’m the father that still lets you be
You’re my daughter
You’re my daughter

I feel lost – I feel hunger
Is this why my angels are gone?
Is this how my angels are gone?
I feel lost

Nature Of Revenge

When fortune smiles on something violent and ugly as revenge, it seems proof like no other that not only God exist, but you're doing his will.

Rollin' Stone

Well, I wish, I was a catfish
Swimmin' in a oh, deep blue sea
I would have all you good lookin' women1

Fishin', fishin' after me
Sure 'nough, after me
Sure 'nough, after me
Oh 'nough, oh 'nough, sure 'nough

I went to my baby's house
And I sit down oh, on her steps
She said, 'Now, come on in now, Muddy'2

You know, my husband just now left
Sure 'nough, he just now left
Sure 'nough, he just now left
Sure 'nough, oh well, oh well

Well, my mother told my father
Just before hmm, I was born
'I got a boy child's comin'

He's gonna be, he's gonna be a 'Rollin' Stone'
Sure 'nough, he's a 'Rollin' Stone'
Sure 'nough, he's a 'Rollin' Stone'
Oh well he's a, oh well he's a, oh well he's a

Well, I feel, yes I feel
Feel that I could lay down oh, time ain't long
I'm gonna catch the first thing smokin'

Back, back down the road I'm goin'
Back down the road I'm goin'
Back down the road I'm goin'
Sure 'nough back, sure 'nough back

Kyoto Song

A nightmare of you
Of death in the pool
Wakes me up at quarter to three
I'm lying on the floor of the night before
With a stranger lying next to me
A nightmare of you
Of death in the pool
I see no further now than this dream
The trembling hand of the trembling man
Hold my mouth
To hold in a scream

I try to think
To make it slow
If only here is where I go
If this is real
I have to see
I turn on fire
And next to me
It looks good
It tastes like nothing on earth
It looks good
It tastes like nothing on earth
Its so smooth it even feels like skin
It tells me how it feels to be new

It tells me how it feels to be new
A thousand voices whisper it true
It tells me how it feels to be new
And every voice belongs
Every voice belongs to you

Family Tree

Anda, My love
Wake up to your window.
The day calls in billows.
It's echoing moonlight onto the blue
nightmare of your heart
In cozy red rainbows
It's shaking off halos
And the memory of our sacred so and so.

Oh take my hand sweet,
Complete your release
Unbury your feet and married we'll be.
Alone in receiving, ours is a feeling.
Not that they would see.
They don't know that we could be.
Down where your cradle escaped the sea
And your raven haired mama caught told you-so's.

We're hanging in the shadow of your family tree.
Your haunted heart and me
Brought down by an old idea whose time has come.
And in the shadow of the gallows of your family tree.
There's a hundred hearts or three.
Pumping blood to the roots of evil to keep them young.

Ah me all mine.
Is it safe to say that we've waited patiently?
Call me on time
And recall the tune that has placed us gracefully
all into line.
There's a garden grave and a place there saved for me.
I fall by your side
though your silver haired mama throws told you-so's.

We're hanging in the shadow of your family tree.
Your haunted heart and me.
Brought down by an old idea whose time has come.
And in the shadow of the valley of your family tree.
There's a hundred hearts or three.
Pumping blood to the roots of Eden to keep us young.

There Will Be A Time

There will be a Light - so bright
That everyone will see
Everyone will see everything
Everything

There will be a Night - so dark
That everyone will sleep
Everyone will sleep peacefully

There will be a breeze so cool
That everyone will feel
Everyone will feel everything
Everything

There will be a Time so high
That everyone will dream
Everyone will dream blissfully

All of this not now but after
All of this not here but somewhere
Not in this land
Not in this life but later, later

It takes time it’s alright
It takes time it’s alright
Later, later

Wait In Line

I can't shake this feeling
At the end o' each day
That I keep on working hard
But all I do is get paid
Though I keep believing
There's a light up ahead
'Cause it's only getting darker
And I could stay in my bed

It's a fight
It takes so long
But I've learned to hold my own

So I stand
And I wait in line
With a heavy head
And this bottle of wine
And I watch
As they steal my time
I stand and I wait in line
I stand and I wait in line

I walk home in the shadows
I carry my cage
And I hope they notice
What I brought to the stage

'Cause it's a fight
And it takes so long
But I've learned to hold my own

So I stand
And I wait in line
With a heavy head
And this bottle of wine
And I watch
As they steal my time
I stand and I wait in line
I stand and I wait in line

Ooh whenever it gets inside
It gets so hard to hide
Whenever it gets inside
Ooh I know you'll turn out right
Giving it all my life
I know you'll turn out right

And I stand
And I wait in line
With a heavy head
And this bottle of wine
And I vow
As they steal my time
I know one day I'll get mine
And I stand here and wait in line

I stand and I wait in line
I stand and I wait in line

Back Around

[Verse 1]
I can feel the memory in my brain
I can feel the cold running through my veins
Like it's been, been this way, all of our life
Looking in the mirror through your eyes
Nothing makes sense, these tears won't dry
I let you down, down and out, never thought twice

[Chorus]
But than was then
And this is now
I know I said I never, but I know I let you down
And it feels dead, in this town
So tell me when will you bring love back around
Bring love back around
Love back around

[Verse 2]
Funny how you never quite realise
That you already have paradise
Til it's gone, all the way, out of your life
Looking in the mirror, don't know myself
Nothing makes sense, this feels like hell
I let you down, down and out, never thought twice

[Chorus]
But than was then (that was then)
And this is now (this is now)
I know I said I never, but I know I let you down
And it feels dead, (it feels dead) in this town (in this down)
So tell me when will you bring love back around
Love back around
Bring love, oh love, oh love
Bring love back around, yeah
Back around, (bring love), oh oh
Oh, love love love
Bring love back around, yeah

[Bridge]
Who can I touch? (with nobody)
Who can I trust? (with nobody)
Who can I love? (with nobody)
If it ain't you, you, you
Who can I touch? (with nobody)
Who can I trust? (with nobody)
Who can I love? (with nobody)
If it ain't you, you, you

[Chorus]
But than was then (was then)
And this is now (this is now)
I know I said I never, but I know I let you down
And it feels dead, (it feels dead) in this town (in this town)
So tell me when will you bring love back around
Back around
Bring love, your love, your love
Bring love back around, yeah
Back around, (bring love), oh oh
Oh, love love love
Bring love back around, yeah
Your love back around

Setting Fires

[Verse 1]
Down to my last match fire I touch just to feel
Why is it easier to burn than it is to heal?

[Pre-Chorus]
Out in the cold you've been
I begged you to come back in
But I can't do this again

[Chorus]
I can't keep you from harm
But I'm set on fire to keep you warm
I can't go on and on
Setting fires to keep you warm
I can't keep you from harm
But I'm set on fire to keep you warm
I can't go on and on
Setting fires to keep you warm

[Post-Chorus]
I can't
I can't go on and on
Setting fires to keep you warm

[Verse 2]
I've been looking for answers I don't want to hear
Chest to chest with you I'm staring into a mirror

[Pre-Chorus]
Out in the cold you've been
I begged you to come back in
But I can't do this again

[Chorus]
I can't keep you from harm
But I'm set on fire to keep you warm
I can't go on and on
Setting fires to keep you warm
I can't keep you from harm
But I'm set on fire to keep you warm
I can't go on and on
Setting fires to keep you warm

[Post-Chorus]
I can't
I can't go on and on
Setting fires to keep you warm

[Bridge]
What would I do?
What I wouldn't do to save you
What would I do?
What I wouldn't do to save you

[Chorus]
I can't keep you from harm
But I'm set on fire to keep you warm
I can't go on and on
Setting fires to keep you warm
I can't keep you from harm
But I'm set on fire to keep you warm
I can't go on and on
Setting fires to keep you warm

[Post-Chorus]
I can't
I can't
I can't go on and on
Setting fires to keep you warm
I can't
I can't
I can't go on and on
Setting fires to keep you warm

Versace On The Floor

Let's take our time tonight, girl
Above us all the stars are watchin'
There's no place I'd rather be in this world
Your eyes are where I'm lost in
Underneath the chandelier
We're dancin' all alone
There's no reason to hide
What we're feelin' inside
Right now
 
[Pre-Chorus]
So, baby, let's just turn down the lights
And close the door
Oooh I love that dress
But you won't need it anymore
No, you won't need it no more
Let's just kiss 'til we're naked, baby
 
[Chorus]
Versace on the floor
Oooh take it off for me, for me, for me, for me now, girl
Versace on the floor
Oooh take it off for me, for me, for me, for me now, girl
 
[Verse 2]
Now I unzip the back to watch it fall
While I kiss your neck and shoulders
No, don't be afraid to show it all
I'll be right here ready to hold you
Girl, you know you're perfect from
Your head down to your heels
Don't be confused by my smile
'Cause I ain't ever been more for real, for real
 
[Pre-Chorus]
So just turn down the lights
And close the door
Oooh I love that dress
But you won't need it anymore
No, you won't need it no more
Let's just kiss 'til we're naked, baby
 
[Chorus]
Versace on the floor
Oooh take it off for me, for me, for me, for me now, girl
Versace on the floor
Oooh take it off for me, for me, for me, for me now, girl
Dance
 
[Bridge]
It's warmin' up
Can you feel it?
It's warmin' up
Can you feel it?
It's warmin' up
Can you feel it, baby?
It's warmin' up
Oh, seems like you're ready for more, more, more
Let's just kiss 'til we're naked
 
[Chorus]
Versace on the floor
Hey, baby
Take it off for me, for me, for me, for me now, girl
Versace on the floor
Oooh take it off for me, for me, for me, for me now, girl

Versace on the floor
Floor
