Beres Hammond Sweet Lies

[Intro:]

Now Jack is the mack and he comes around every Monday,

Oh Tuesday and Wednesday,

Every day of the week

And even though I try to tell you that I love you from the bottom of my heart

You had no place for me,

It’s all vanity now

[Chorus:]

You fell for one a them sweet lies

The ones you don’t want to believe in

When your heart’s not hearing

What your brain is saying

And you’re weak in the knees

Another sweet lie

The kind you don’t want to believe

When the heart’s in doubt you got to stay out

[Verse 1:]

Now the wine and the roses

Stop coming around sometime ago

But you won’t admit that so, you pretend

I know it’s hard to look your best

Wearing that same old shabby dress

So you stay at home, waiting by the phone

[Chorus]

[Verse 2:]

Now it gives me no pleasure to say I told you so,

It’s been hard to keep it low

Knowing the things I know

Maybe in another place and in another time

Under different circumstances

You will find happiness, so I suggest

Don’t take foolish chances no

[Verse 3]

[Chorus]

Beres Hammond 360 Turn

[Intro:]

Strange

Woman is strange

Cho caan believe dis

[Verse 1:]

How come you tell me that you love me then you run away

And if you love me why you listening to hearsay

Cause in the night you pack you things and mek you getaway

And if you neva love me shoud a tell me right away

You neva hi me when me rapsa up de next day

Feel like a soccer when dem naah gi no air play

Like a piece a furniture you lef me pon de lay-a-way

You got me roun’ de block me waan fi know wha you a seh

[Hook:]

Cause I know you gonna have to make a 360 turn

All that standing on your own

Make sure no bridge nah burn

Either you like it or leave it

[Verse 2:]

Might no know nuttin much bout biology

Set speed when it come to trigonometry

Right yah now and dis between de whole a we

Yes me know enough fi know when gal a swing me

And me no really waan fi put you under pressure

Mi haf fi sure seh you runnin’ days are over

If mi know you a go missin, make a 360 turn

Or stay on your own

Make sure yuh bridge nah burn

[Verse 3:]

How come you tell me that you love me then you run away

And if you love me why you listening to hearsay

Cause in the night you pack you things and mek you getaway

And if you neva love me shoud a tell me right away

Cause me vibes neva irie me de nex day

If mi know you a go missin, make a 360 turn

Hold your debt on your own

Beres Hammond Fire

How can evil be over,

When you get them fight from even your closest brother.

Some people coming with some wicked intention,

Watch for them from all direction,

But the Father got a different solution,

For every action there’s a reaction.

Fire, Fire Lord,

Fire, a dis ya burning flame,

Fire, Fire Lord,

Fire, a dis ya burning flame.

Some people coming with some wicked intention,

Nuff disguise and false representation,

Trying to get closer, the long time acquaintance,

But Father will help me to keep my distance.

Though they may try,

They will never overcome,

Got to be burned,

For all the evil that they’ve done.

Fire, Fire Lord,

Fire, a dis ya burning flame,

Fire, Fire Lord,

Fire, a dis ya burning flame.

Gonna burn them,

Father’s gonna burn them,

A gonna burn them,

Father’s gonna burn them.

Tell me what wrong have I done,

Have I not tried to be good and kind to everyone,

And still you take my kindness,

Mistake it for weakness,

But I’ll be the light out of the darkness.

Fire, Fire Lord,

Fire, a dis ya burning flame,

Fire, Fire Lord,

Fire, a dis ya burning flame.

Beres Hammond Can’t Say I Never Tried

I wanna wrap you up with love

‘Cause that is all I have

I could have promised you the world and its riches

And anything that pleases

Reality is no, ’cause that’s not how it goes

You gotta love me for who I am

And show the world you don’t give a damn

I spend precious moments of the day

Worrying about you

I pray and I pray and I ask the Father

To pull you through

Watch your step and guide your head

And make sure you’re not misled

‘Cause if someone should offend you

It would hurt me so bad, yes

I am so vulnerable at this time

And I don’t know what I’ll do, no, no

Don’t wanna get too uncomfortable

So I’m counting on you, yeah

Stick to the ones who love you most

Yeah, more than anybody in the world

Stick to the ones you know you can trust

Yeah, yeah

Can’t say I never tried, you can say it’s because of I

‘Cause you don’t have to fail

And if you do, I’ll share the blame

But don’t feel ashamed

‘Cause I will be there for you with open arms

At the 23rd [?]

To comfort you and care for you

And love you like no one can do

I can’t wait for the moment when

We can get back together again

And then there’s no secret, no reason to fake it

Yeah

I’m trying my best to keep it cool, make it look good

But I’m burning up from the inside, yeah

And in spite of everything, I tried to keep it in strive

And I hope you’ll abide, yes

And stick to the ones who love you most

More than anything in this whole wide world

Stick to the ones you know you can trust, yes

Can’t say I never tried, you can say it’s because of I

Beres Hammond More Time

Maybe I could’ve done better

Maybe we both could

But no time for blaming game

That would do us no good

Time taught me lessons

Took the test and now I passed

If I knew what I know now

This wouldn’t have been a task

Seeeing you for the first time in a long time

Would you believe if I tell you, you never left my mind

Honey, things do happen, but some things never change

Cause here we are, you and I again

Oh it’s gonna take

More time, more time

For the wounds to mend, yes

I know that you scared and you hurting, but so am I

They say old friends don’t take much to start a flame yea

All I can say to you is that it’s worth another try

Let by gone, be by gone (let by gone be by gone)

It’s already there, it’s already there (it’s already done)

Can’t go on living our lives in the past

Let try again, make sure this time it last

Though it’s gonna take

More time, more time

For the wounds to mend, yes

I know that you scared and you hurting, but so am I

They say old friends don’t take long to start a flame

All I can say that it’s worth another try

I think we’re blessed so we’re given more time

And we’re not, perfect please let me remind

Gonna take

More time, more time

For the wounds to mend, yes

I know that you scared and you hurting, but so am I

They say old friends don’t take much to start a flame yea

But all what I can say to you is that it’s worth another try

More time, more time

For the wounds to mend

I know that you scared and you hurting, but so am I

They say old friends don’t take much to start a flame

What I can say to you is that it’s worth just this one more try

Yeah, let’s do it again

Let’s do it again

Do what we gotta to do and let it live

We don’t take to long

For the flames to start once again

Oh oh let’s try

Yea yea, yea yea, let’s try

One more time, start all over again, yes

Let’s try

Beres Hammond Doctor’s Orders

[Intro:]

Give me a break baby

Need to be with you

The doctor’s order

I feel a shiver,

I’m feeling down and out

I’m a true believer,

I know what it’s all about

I know it’s not the flu,

It’s all because of you

I feel a trembling when I wake,

Come back and give another break

I feel a shiver,

Running up my spine

This hurting hurting feeling,

It gets me all the time

Everytime you go away,

Seems I can’t live another day

Oh my bed it is so cold,

She got my happiness on hold

Oh I feel a tun of joy,

And my heart gets warm

Thinking about you holding you,

Squeezing u in my arms

But as the day turns to night,

Loneliness gives me a fight

I’m afraid to close my eyes,

Guess it’s another sleepless night

Oh this shiver, this shiver, this shiver baby

I’m on the doctor’s order,

And I need you baby

The remedy is you girl,

Don’t you know,

Don’t you know
