Beverley Knight There’s Nothing Like This

Sip a glass of cold champagne wine

The rug that we lie on feels divine

And there’s no no no no, no parallel

For we two

Ecstasy the word of the night

Ringing in our ears we’re in flight

And there’s no no no no, no substitution

For what we have

No others can have

[Chorus]

There’s nothing like this

There’s nothing like this

No-one could ever have

What we have

There’s nothing like this

The lightest conversation has its flow

Aural communication don’t you know

And I feel quite content

Right now

Stick with me and we’ll make history

An exclusive pair in love we will be

And there’s no no substitution

For what we have

No others can have

There’s nothing like this

There’s nothing like this

There’s nothing like this

Not even remotely like this

There’s nothing like this

There’s nothing like this

There’s nothing like this

And I feel quite content

Just me and you baby

And I wouldn’t change a thing

[Fade]

Beverley Knight Sista Sista

(Oh)

(oh sista)

(sista, sista)

Sitting alone with a head full of empty thoughts

Playing with time that she just doesn’t have

Dreaming that life is a stranger that brings you flowers

Praying the dream is as real as she feels it is

Dreams give you anything

Knowing that chance can bring you to the other side

Wanting her future there

Feeling that love affair

With the other side

Sista, sista better run, better fly

Better weather’s on the other side

Sista, sista stand up tall, don’t you ever fall

Sista, sista can’t you hear my call?

Over the bridge, turning right at the stop sign

Lives a woman, who thinks as you do

Watching the world thru’ the glare of a TV screen

Wonderin’ what’s round the corner for you

I would give anything

Hoping that chance could bring you to the other side

Soon as my thoughts are clear, one day I’ll see you there

On the other side

Sista, sista better run, better fly

Better weather’s on the other side

Sista, sista stand up tall, don’t you ever fall

Sista, sista can’t you hear my call?

Calling

Oh, calling Calling

Sista, sista, sista, sista

My sista

Sista, sista better run, better fly

Better weather’s on the other side

Sista, sista stand up tall, don’t you ever fall

Sista, sista can’t you hear my call?

Oh, sista, sista better run, better fly

Better weather on the other side (oh)

Sista, sista stand up tall, don’t you ever fall

Sista, sista can’t you hear my call?

Cant you hear my call

Sista, sista better run, better go and fly

Better weather’s on the other side

Sista, sista stand up tall, don’t you ever fall

Sista, sista can’t you hear me

Hear me

Hear me

Don’t you hear me call?

(Sista, sista) Won’t you run, won’t you hide?

Better weather’s on the other side

Sista, sista stand up tall, don’t you ever fall

Sista, sista can’t you hear this call?

Calling to you

Beverley Knight Say I’m Your Number One

Say I’m your number one

I only wanna be close to you

Say I’m your number one (your number one your number one)

‘Cause you know I’ll be good to you

Say I’m your number one

They say I’m crazy

They say that I’m a fool

And I feel so helpless because love can be so cruel

But I’m just waiting and burning up inside

Come tomorrow

Come tomorrow

Will you still be mine

Say I’m your number one

I only wanna be close to you

Oh oh say I’m your number one (your number one your number one)

‘Cause you know I’ll be good to you

Say I’m your number one

Oh yeah

You may be tempted and sometimes led astray

But I know but I know you’ll regret it the very next day

I sit and wonder whenever we’re apart

Would you do it

Would you do it

Would you go and break my heart

Say I’m your number one

I only wanna be close to you

Say I’m your number one (your number one your number one)

‘Cause you know I’ll be good to you

Tell me tell me that nobody else will do

‘Cause I only wanna be with you

[Repeat chorus]

Beverley Knight No One Ever Loves In Vain

Every day found us together

But no-one knew of fate’s design

Just as we begun to really live our dreams

Life ran out of time

Every moment shared was worth it

Memories only I can claim

Though it hurts so much

It helps me understand

No-one ever loves in vain

What we had showed me the power

Of a very special friend

Our amazing bond we formed while you were here

Well that will never end

Every moment shared was worth it, oh yeah

Memories only I can claim, yeah

Though it hurts so much

It helps me understand

That no-one ever loves in vain

Sometimes I feel like I am so lonely

And that’s when I know that everything’s changed

Yet through the tears I smile and say

I’m so glad you came

Every moment shared, well it was worth it

Memories only I can claim, only me, yes

And though it hurts so much

You helped me understand

No-one ever loves in vain

Beverley Knight Steppin’ On My Shoes

You, you’re steppin on my shoes

Oh yeah yeah

oh oh oh

People steppin’ on my shoes

People frontin’ on my fundamental rules

People steppin’ on my shoes

But everything you see is a part of my history

“Life without ambition leads you to a no-win situation”

So, I said, in my position, that all my dreams will come to fruition

I fought to stay a winner, but every opportunity grew slimmer

How can I keep my sanity when all the odds are piled against me

I see

People steppin’ on my shoes

People frontin’ on my fundamental rules

People steppin’ on my shoes

But everything you see is a part of my history

Life ain’t so rosy

When circumstance is takin’ all your money

The mailbox seems so empty

It’s like the world’s deigned to just drive me crazy

People steppin’ on my shoes

People frontin’ on my fundamental rules

People steppin’ on my shoes

But everything you see is a part of my history

People steppin’ on my shoes

People frontin’ on my fundamental rules

People steppin’ on my shoes

oh, but everything you see is a part of my history

It’s kinda strange – you could arrange your future

A lifetime of making-other-people-plenty-money, y’know

It’s suicide to analyse what’s goin’ on

But if you’re willing to take a risk, maybe you can find the strength to fight it

People steppin’ on my shoes

People frontin’ on my fundamental rules

People steppin’ on my shoes

But everything you see is a part of my history

People steppin’ on my shoes

People frontin’ on my fundamental rules

People steppin’ on my shoes

But everything you see is a part of my history

People steppin’ on my shoes

People frontin’ on my fundamental rules

People steppin’ on my shoes

Frontin’ on my rules

People steppin’ on my shoes

People frontin’ on my fundamental rules

People steppin’ on my shoes

Beverley Knight Straight Jacket

Why, why can’t you be happy for me?

Now I’ve found someone who’ll put up with me

I’m no little girl, I’m the woman you raised

I need some answers, you got me fazed

With your prejudice

Was there something I missed

When you told me you love me?

You want me in your straight jacket

You won’t accept me without it though

You know it’s the one I’ve outgrown

You want me in your straight jacket

You’ll never close me in your brackets

Don’t you realise you’re out on your own?

Please, please understand my choice

Why you trying to stifle my voice?

I sympathise with the way that you feel

But time stops for no-one

And you’re standing still

And nothing grows under a shadow

I’m sorry, it’s not my story

You want me in your straight jacket

You won’t accept me without it though

You know it’s the one I’ve outgrown

You want me in your straight jacket

You’ll never close me in your brackets

Don’t you realise you’re out on your own?

I’m sorry that my life didn’t turn out as you meant

Nothing is an accident

It’s all just in the script

It’s something to accept

I know you won’t admit

You only hurt yourself

I can’t do this by myself

‘Cause we’ve been banging our heads

On the same piece of the same wall

At the same time

For far too long now

And nothing lasts forever

So what else is new?

You held us all together

We’re all waiting for you

You want me in your straight jacket

You won’t accept me without it though

You know it’s the one I’ve outgrown

You want me in your straight jacket

You’ll never close me in your brackets

Don’t you realise you’re out on your own?

You want me in your straight jacket

You won’t accept me without it though

You know it’s the one I’ve outgrown

You want me in your straight jacket

You’ll never close me in your brackets

Don’t you realise you’re out on your own?

Beverley Knight Below My Radar

The cab I didn’t call, didn’t come

It’s four in the morning

Sometimes I know you’re telling me the truth

Just Like I know you’re lying now

I’m still coming

I’m still standing and staying

I’m not swaying

I’ll taste your tears when I hold you near

You can only tune in so far

Before life freezes you just as you are

You can only get so deep in

Before someone wipes away that grin

You an only push me so much

‘Til I’m too tender to touch

And you can only take you so far

Before you fall below my radar

The ‘yes’ you’re waiting on will not come

It must come from you

Sometimes I know you’re lying to everyone

It’s all too easy to see through

I’m still coming

I’m still standing and staying

I’m not swaying

I’ll taste your tears when I hold you near

You can only tune in so far

Before life freezes you just as you are

You can only get so deep in

Before someone wipes away that grin

You an only push me so much

‘Til I’m too tender to touch

And you can only take you so far

Before you fall below my radar

Below my radar

So you run and I run, but you stick close to me

You’re in front and you’re faster, but just by degrees

You don’t give it easy, not even an inch

Why do I find you so hard to convince?

Oh lord

You can only tune in so far

Before life freezes you just as you are

You can only get so deep in

Before someone wipes away that grin

You an only push me so much

‘Til I’m too tender to touch

And you can only take you so far

Before you fall below my radar

Below, below my radar
