Beverley Knight The B-Funk

Let me introduce you to… B-Funk (do-do-do-do-do)

Let me show you a new school concept of funkin’

It’s called the B-Funk

And I am aware

Dawning of a new day in UK flavour

Thats on the rise

And I’m inspired by an older generation

Who weren’t afraid to give their all and nothing else

I-I-I-I give you… the B-Funk

Beverley Knight Don’t Be A Fool

Dreams are dreams and they do come true

I believe in dreams don’t you

We all need something to hold on to

Analyse the situation

You have got to take control

Do the best in what you think you know

You got to tell yourself

Try and you will progress

There more to life than you know

Don’t give up the fight

Take one day at a time

You’ve just got to have heart so

Don’t be a fool no

Don’t throw your life away

Don’t be a fool no

Don’t waste your life away

Ah don’t be a fool

Don’t throw your life away

Don’t be a fool

Don’t waste your life away

Sort your life out yeah yeah yeah yeah

Sleepless nights hallucinations

Can’t get up the day is through

Here’s the night the stars they look at you

Puff the magic dragons got you

Locked into his highs and lows

Then you find it harder to breakthrough

You got to tell yourself

Try and you will progress

There more to life than you know so much more than you know

Don’t give up the fight

Take one day at a time one day

You’ve just got to have heart so

Don’t be a fool

Don’t throw your life away

Don’t be a fool

Don’t waste your life away

Don’t be a fool

Don’t throw your life away

Don’t be a fool

Don’t waste your life away

Sort your life out uh yeah yeah yeah yeah

[Chorus x2]

Sort you life out yeah yeah yeah yeah

Oh yeah

Beverley Knight Made It Back 99

Whoah

Made it back

Oh yeah

(representing BK)

>From a place that had no meaning

>From the wilderness of time

To the land of new beginning

Starting with a new design

Never doubted for a second

That I’d do it on my own

And I held on to my corner

Trusted in the things I know

You will never feel how good it is to love me

Rather than control me

I don’t need the world weighing down my shoulders

But that’s all, over here I am

I (oh I)

Made it back (from a place called nowhere)

I (oh I)

Made it back (to do this once again said…)

I (oh I)

Made it back (from a place called nowhere)

I (oh I)

Made it back (once again I made it back)

Got a chance to fix up neatly

Set it off and not too late

Saw the light and walked towards it

I’m the master of my fate (yo Beverley)

Coming up just wasn’t easy

It took all the strength I had

Now I’m ready for the action

Mama’s got a brand nu bag

You will never feel how good it is to love me

Rather than control me (rather than control me baby)

I don’t need the world (don’t need it) weighing down my shoulders (weighing down my shoulder, no, no)

But that’s all, over here I am (say..)

I (oh I)

Made it back (from a place called nowhere)

I (oh I)

Made it back (to do this once again said…)

I (oh I)

Made it back (from a place called nowhere)

I (oh I)

Made it back (to do this once again say..)

I (oh I)

Made it back (from a place called nowhere)

I (oh I)

Made it back (once again I made it back)

As I proceed to put in in high speed

I leave MC’s like Chris Reeves when I breathe

And next time a record label jerk Beverley

I’ma do something to ya the corroner’s never seen

Flatten London with a half an ounce

Same thing is picking up on the path and bounce

Redman, spit on the concrete, turn to sand

Show hot I burn next to the man, next to the man

Hash –, smell the gun

Still young

Still hit ya doorbell and run

Flava (hmm yeah)

Flava (ooh yeah)

Flava

Brand new flava (yeah)

Flava (yeah)

Flava (yeah)

Brand new flava (oh yeah)

Flava (oh yeah)

Flava (hell yeah)

Brand new flava (oh yeah)

Flava (oh yeah)

Flava (oh yeah)

Once again I made it back

(oh I)

Made it back (from a place called nowhere)

I (oh I)

Made it back (to do this once again said…)

I (oh I)

Made it back (from a place called nowhere)

I (oh I)

Made it back (once again I made it back)

I (oh I)

Made it back (from a place called nowhere)

I (oh I)

Made it back

I (oh I)

Made it back (from a place called nowhere)

I (oh I)

Made it back (once again I made it back)

To The ‘A’ Team – we did it!

Beverley Knight A.W.O.L.

I never see you anymore, you’re absent without leave

In life I learned a lot of things

And what it brings to ya

And how it’s good to be alone sometimes

I should have know you’d get an itch

And you would switch on me

And run away when day turns into night

‘Cos you’re a…

Good time sister

Always out for something better

Just when I need a friend you’re…

Absent without leave

Good time brother

Called you friend when I knew better

Ain’t got no time to spend you’re…

Absent witout leave

So many people that I’ve found say they’re down wit ya

Then like a ship they sail on with the breeze

See, in the sun they get a touch, but it’s too much for ’em

They fall around you like the winter leaves

A little rain and they would run for cover

(I can stil remember)

When no-one else could see the need to shelter

(How can I forget?)

Knowing better times are round the corner

(Oh I can still remember)

So now when summer skies turn into grey, here’s what I say…

Good time sister

Always out for something better

Just when I need a friend you’re…

Absent without leave

[Chorus (x2)]

Beverley Knight Beautiful Contradiction

[Beverley Knight]

Guess my Mama knew exactly what she meant the day she said

“Be careful what you wish for it will come to you.”

Little did I know the day I met you, you would demonstrate

How everything in Mama’s words would ring so true

Independent people with a different take on living

Now how did we become more than just good friends?

[Chorus (Both)]

Baby we make such a beautiful contradiction

Together we are in no two ways the same.

Baby we make such a beautiful contradiction

And it’s the very thing that sparks the flame.

[Musiq Soulchild]

You and I should be like oil and water

but somehow we mix together and we make a very special blend

Every day we clash on politics, religion,

but we learned the art of how to kiss and make up in the end yeah.

Sometimes I believe that we were born on different planets

Alien invasion of my heart and soul

[Chorus]

[Beverley Knight]

I realise it, you learn, you gotta cry, you gotta respect and

Feel somebody you gotta fall, you gotta rise

To really understand the things that make this little world go round.

That’s what really makes us, that’s how we learn.

Sometimes I believe that we were born on different planets

Alien invasion of my heart and soul.

[Chorus]

Beverley Knight Affirmation

Intuition I could not ignore

Came to help me in my time of danger

Wasn’t easy walking out the door

But I knew any other place was safer

And the freedom that I now enjoy

Helps the bruises in my heart to face

‘Cause I know I am not afraid

You can never feel the joy and pain

That you’ve never known

Far too much emotion to explain

In a story that is not your own

How you gonna try to sing the blues

When the only key you know is major?

Walk a mile in someone else’s shoes

And the ups and downs have got to change ya

You can’t tell me that you understand

‘Til my bitter tears roll down your face

‘Til you’re standing in my place

You can never feel the joy and pain

That you’ve never known

Far too much emotion to explain

In a story that is not your own

Now I’ve got it together

I will always remember

Where I’ve been, where I’m going

Why I’m here, why I’m living

Now I’ve got it together

There’s no more desperation

Only my affirmation

To live for me

You can never feel the joy and pain

That you’ve never known

Far too much emotion to explain

In a story that is not your own

Beverley Knight Keep This Fire Burning

Even when you don’t know

I’ll be right by your side

Even when you think you’re all alone

I’ll be by your side, yeah

I’ll be right behind you

Keep on going

In whichever way the wind is blowing

I’ll be there ’til the

World stops turning

Baby I will keep this fire burning

When nobody else is

I am on your side

Baby when you’re not even yourself

I am on your side

I’ll be right behind you

Keep on going

In whichever way the wind is blowing

I will be there ’til the

World stops turning

Baby I will keep this fire burning

Even when you’ve lost your faith in love

Even when there is no light above

Even when you wanna run and hide

I’ll be on your side

I don’t think you even know

How far I’m about to go

If you put your trust in me

I’ll keep it coming

Ain’t nobody stopping me

When it comes to you and me

Nothing’s like it used to be

I’ll keep it coming

I’ll be right behind you

Keep on going

In whichever way the wind is blowing

I will be there ’til the

World stops turning

Baby I will keep this fire burning

I don’t think you even know

How far I’m about to go

If you put your trust in me

I’ll keep it coming

Ain’t nobody stopping me

When it comes to you and me

Nothing’s like it used to be

I’ll keep it coming

I’ll be right behind you

Keep on going

In whichever way the wind is blowing

I will be there ’til the

World stops turning

Baby I will keep this fire burning

I will be your sister

I will be your brother

I will be your lover

I will be your everything, yes I will, yeah

Baby I will keep this fire burning

Beverley Knight Soul Survivor

There’s a time and place for change

Ain’t too many things that stay the same..

I’ve been there through every phase

Seasons come and go, but I remain

I’m the one who holds the cards

Every hand I play I raise the stakes

Doubters wonder from afar

How I leave ’em trailing in my wake

I’m a Soul Survivor

I’m a Soul Revivor

Bv’s we came, we saw we won

It’s far from done

And time will heal the pain

The road is long

It gets you down

But we will do it all again.

Where’s the man to quantify

Everything I’m worth and who I am?

He should look me in the eye

Tell me where he figures in my plan…!

There ain’t nobody gonna make me stop

Turn the lock, rip me off

‘Cuz I’m right where I should be

And can’t nobody ever hold me back

Change the tack, make me slack

You can’t find another “Me”.

I’m a Soul Survivor

I’m a Soul Revivor

Bv’s we came, we saw we won

It’s far from done

And time will heal the pain

The road is long

It gets you down

But we will do it all again.

Never underestimate

All the strength that lives inside of you

I am here to demonstrate

What no ordinary mind can do

I’m a Soul Survivor

I’m a Soul Revivor

Bv’s we came, we saw we won

It’s far from done

And time will heal the pain

The road is long

It gets you down

But we will do it all again
