En Vogue Nearly Lost

How could this be happening

See, I gave my all,

Still you walked away, yes you did

This ol’ house ain’t been the same

These same walls

They call out your name

And then

Gotta stop and catch my breath

There really ain’t nothing left

Tryin’ hold on it’s gone

I’m movin’ on without you

Every time, I dry these eyes

It really builds up inside

Use to be me and you

And I still can’t believe we’re through

[Chorus:]

I nearly lost my mind

Cried about a thousand time

Really tired of missin’ you

Baby

Gotta get through this pain

Wish I never hurt again

Why’d you take our love away

My baby

You don’t know the pain you caused

When you broke me down

You didn’t care at all

No you didn’t

Took my soul, mistreated me

But, see that’s alright

I’m back on my feet

Gotta stop and catch my breath

There really ain’t nothing left

Tryin’ hold on it’s gone

I’m movin’ on without you

Every time, I dry these eyes

It really builds up inside

Use to be me and you

And I still can’t believe we’re through

[Chorus]

En Vogue Rocket

Looking at the sky at night

Little bitty circles of light

You point out a constellation that you like

And tell me all about it

Cause you know about it

And I love that you know stuff like that

Love that the little things means so much

That’s why I’m always smiling

I swear I smile my face off

Let me kiss you face off

Right before we take off

In this rocket (of love)

In this rocket (of love)

And you got me so high

Higher than I ever been

And you got me so high

Higher than I ever been

Up in the stars with you

Up in the stars with you

Up in the stars with you

Up in the stars

Darker than I’ve ever seen ya

Don’t think I ever felt so small

But darkness never felt so bright

And in your arms

It’s hard to feel afraid at all

On your neck I feel your breath

Chills up my spine

Feels I’m in mine

All the time

That’s why I’m always smiling

I swear I smile my face off

Let me kiss you face off

Right before we take of

In this rocket (of love)

In this rocket (of love)

And you got me so high

Higher than I ever been

And you got me so high

Higher than I ever been

Up in the stars with you

Up in the stars with you

Up in the stars with you

Up in the stars

Well if this world don’t understand the love

That we share between us babe

Oh then we’ll fly away

Fly away and just find one that does

In this rocket (of love)

In this rocket (of love)

And you got me so high (so high)

Higher than I ever been

And you me so high (so high)

Higher than I ever been

En Vogue Just Can’t Stay Away

Won’t you come close to me now

Won’t you come close to me now

Here i am baby

Right back in your arms

What is it ’bout your love

That draws me to you

And though this is not the first time, baby

I ever wanted to get away, no

Oh but the magic of your love

Just would not let me stray

So i find that i just can’t

Stay away from you baby, you yea

You see, i just can’t stay away from you

Let me tell ya

I’ve been through a lot of changes

See, my mama scorn me

Oh yes she did

And my closest friends, oh lord

You know they warned me

They said you’re no good for me

But i just ignored it

Yes i did

Cause i didn’t have time

No time, no time, no time

To sit around and decide what to do

When someone controls your mind

There’s not much you can do

So you see that’s why

I can’t stay away

I don’t wanna, from you

It’s not in my power to leave you

You control the soul in me

I can’t stay away

You’ve been so good to me

I just love that man

Just can’t, don’t want to, i can’t no way

En Vogue Love U Crazay

It’s just like this

I knew it from the first time I kissed your lips

I can’t resist, the passion was so strong

As I looked into your eyes

I became a little weak and I was mesmerized

I lost all track of time

[1]

Must be something to it

I don’t wanna loose it

I don’t wanna loose it

Must be something to it

Love U Crazay ( Crazay, Crazay)

I’ve got crazay love for you

I adore you, always wanting you

Loosing sleep over you

Guess I truly do love you crazay

(Crazay, crazay)

I’ve got crazay love for you

It must be fate

I never would of met you if I wasn’t late

Oh, my mistake for hitting your new car

Somethin’ ’bout you took me in

Somethin’ ’bout that dark brown skin

Somethin’ ’bout that sexy smile

Somethin’ ’bout you drove me wild

And now I’m crazay

They’re goin’ to put me away

[Repeat 1]

As I can’t believe this world without the sun

I can’t believe my heart without your love

Those who don’t understand

Haven’t had anyone to win their heart

Like you’ve done to me thus far

[Kamil]

So what part of the game is this

I’m suppose to be real smooth

Instead I stumblin’ over words and ish

You got me nervous, shakin’, makin’ my hands sweaty

Nobody’s ever had this effect on sweets Marzette

I found myself doing things I’d never do

Lately I been ditchin’ all my friends

And dissin’ other men for you

All I think about is you

And I don’t like it one bit

Somehow you crashed into my life

And now I’m crazay lovesick

Yo

[Repeat 1 x2]

[2]

I’m in love with you

And my love is true

No one else will do

I got crazay love for you

[Repeat 2 until fade]

En Vogue Love Makes You Do Thangs

Here I go again

I guess I can’t pretend

I’m a sucker for pure love, my friend

I find myself always thinking

About that first romantic weekend

It’s like there’s nothing else to do

But sit and fantasize of you

(Love, love, love) love makes you do thangs (do thangs)

(Love, love, love) makes you do thangs (do thangs)

You can’t fight it, anyway

It grabs you by the heart

And makes you walk away

So far, you gave me love

What more could I be asking for

I’ll make him mad he leaves,

Cause I won’t go all the way from me

Love, love, love (love makes you)

Makes you do thangs (do thangs)…

Love, love, love (love makes you do thangs)

Makes you do thangs (do thangs)…

Letters all the time

Why can’t I simply say what’s on my mind

I got to make it harder, thangs with poetic sayings

Why it’s so hard to see the signs of love in front of me

Maybe I don’t believe there could ever be a love for me

Find yourself a bit confused

Wonder why you’re doin’ things you don’t normally do in life

I got news for you, it’s the same for everyone

Once you’re in you can’t win, so you might as well have fun

Love (love)…

Makes you do thangs (do thangs)…

If you choose not listen to me

Don’t you say I didn’t warn you, one day love comes back to haunt you

Don’t be fooled, baby, it’s the same for everyone

Once you’re in you can’t win, so you might as well have fun, hoo

Love (love)…

Makes you do thangs

Do thangs (do thangs)…

Makes you do thangs (do thangs)…

En Vogue Luv Lines

I never thought I’d be the one to find a guy

Who gives his love to everyone

Give promises he never keeps

He broke my heart

And scattered all my hopes and dreams

Now I’m so confused

Don’t know what I should do

Looking for some sound advice

Can’t take another sleepless night

All reasoning gone

Still I’ve got to be strong

This is why I’m calling you

What would be the thing to do

[chorus:]

Call up luv lines

And solve luv crimes

Call up luv lines

And solve luv crimes

I always thought true love should be

Full of trust respects and honesty

How could a man just walk away

And never a second thought

About the heart he breaks

Watch out what you do

This may happen to you

He can charm you with his eyes

Best believe he’s full of lies

He’ll take control of your mind and your soul

This is why I’m warning you

So you’ll know I’m warning you

So you’ll know just what to do

[chorus x4]

[bridge:]

I’m calling up to ask your point of view

So be straight with me

I feel that I can depend on you

I know I’m not the first to call your line

Many more of you are victims to this passion crime

[chorus x4]

En Vogue Latin Soul

Me and my friends, we went out last night

To a small simple club on the nights

It didn’t have much room, but hell they never do

Just chairs, a few tables, and some food

A small cramped band started playing, and all the room was swaying

Soon I found myself dancing, with a tall dark man

I was in a trance, a sort of romance

Between the rhythm and my soul, ohh

[chorus]

Oooh, I wake up in the morning

And it’s all me, I can hear the calling

And it’s haunting each and everything

I didn’t know my latin love was oh so strong

Even in the middle of romancing, really love the rhythm when I’m dancing

Can’t deny the spirit when you feel the latin soul

After that night, my life had changed

I had no control and now I would behave

Every chance I got, I was at the club

Wining and dining like there was no tomorrow

Ooooh, oooh, so free

Ooooh, oooh, so me, yea yea

Ooooh, oooh, so lifting

And I don’t want it to stop, no

[chorus x2]

If your life can’t seem to get going, hopelessness is showing

To your soul, and to latin

Get into the sounds, of the rhythms beating out

’cause when your dancing, your spirit will be free, yea

Ooooh, oooh, so free yea

Ooooh, oooh, so me, yea yea

Ooooh, oooh, so uplifting, yea

And I don’t want it to stop, no

[chorus x3]

En Vogue Right Direction

Standing on this dusty road

Listening to my radio

If you could see, I’d know you swear

I’m a thousand miles from anywhere

Well it may seem stong insane to you, baby

But I guess it’s just what I gotta do

Just to get myself to where you are

Don’t you know I traveled many times as far

Well I hope I’m headed in the right direction

Got no time for making wrong decisions

What could give me such a sense of mission

Only love… could’ve brought me here

In the right direction

Well it takes a strong man and a mighty wind

To send me off to the places I’ve been

It takes more than one of a tales to tell, baby

Searching for some weak will

And i’m, hope I’m headed in the right direction

Got no time for making wrong decisions

What could give me such a sense of mission

Only love… could’ve brought me here

Everybody knows that love will make you crazy

Make you play the fool that’s sotoxicated

So don’t you be surprised if one leaves the afternoon

I come knocking on your door baby

Cause you know I’m not a mule

Well I may not pass this way again

And if I do, I don’t know when

But it seems to me, unless I’m wrong, baby

Our paths will cross before too long

Well I hope I’m headed in the right direction

Got no time for making wrong decisions

What could give me such a sense of mission

Only love….. should’ve brought me here

[x2]

Only love can set me off in the right direction

[repeat until fade]

En Vogue Sitting By Heaven’s Door

My love,

We vowed to be together

Through the good times and stormy weather

Ooh, but if it falls around us

If I should lose in you sudden darkness

You should always know I’ll be

Sitting by heaven’s door

Waiting for you to come home (I’m waiting on you to come back home, my baby)

Sitting by heaven’s door

Waiting for you to come home (I’ll be waiting, no hesitating)

All I know is from this day on

We bond as one forever more

No way, no way we can lose

And any mountain we can move

With a team who beat the game called love

And, oh…

You know the time will come

When life will end somehow

And one of us is left without the other

If it happens to be me

Don’t worry much, darling

I’ll leave a passage to my heart and this is where I’ll be

(With the key in my hand)

Sitting by heaven’s door

Waiting for you to come home (I’m waiting for you, baby, oh, yeah)

Sitting by heaven’s door

Waiting for you to come home (Waiting, baby, for you)

Sitting by heaven’s door

Waiting for you to come home

Sitting by heaven’s door

Waiting for you to come home

Sitting by heaven’s door (I’m waiting, anticipating, yeah

Waiting for you to come home (Come on, come on, baby, ooh, yeah)

Sitting by heaven’s door (Come on home to me, yeah, ooh)

Waiting for you to come home (Come on, baby, come on, baby, come on, baby)

Sitting by heaven’s door (Come on, baby, come on, baby, come on, baby, come on, baby)

Waiting for you to come home (Come on, baby, come on, baby, come on, baby, come on, baby)

Sitting by heaven’s door (Now come on back, come on, baby, oh, come on, baby, come on, baby)

Waiting for you to come home (Come on, come on, come on, come on, baby)

Sitting by heaven’s door

(Waiting for you to come home)
