Gladys Knight Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me

I’ve had my share of life’s ups and downs

But fate’s been kind, the downs have been few

I guess you could say that I’ve been lucky

Well, I guess you could say that it’s all because of you

If anyone should ever write my life story

For whatever reason there might be

Ooo, you’ll be there between each line of pain and glory

‘Cause you’re the best thing that ever happened to me

Ah, you’re the best thing that ever happened to me

Now there have been times, when times were hard

But I always somehow I made it, I made it through

Don’t worry for every moment that I’ve spent hurting

There was a moment That I spent,

Ah just loving you

If anyone should ever write my life story

For whatever reason there might be

Oh, you’ll be there between each line of pain and glory

‘Cause you’re the best thing that ever happened to me

Oh, you’re the best thing that ever happened to me

I know, you’re the best thing, oh, that ever happened to me

Gladys Knight Love Overboard

They tell me, Gladys, you know you love too hard

But I tell ’em, not nearly hard enough

They say, girlfriend, you know you go too far

Around the world ain’t far enough

‘Cause I only wanna show you, what you mean to me

Everytime I’m reachin’ out to you, I start to sink

I may be drowning with desire from your sweet, sweet touch

I don’t care what people say ’cause I love you so much

Love overboard

My love’s in need of help

Love overboard

I sure can’t help myself

Love overboard

I don’t know what to do

Love overboard

I’m so in love with you, baby

Baby, they say I work too hard

Not really, when it comes to lovin’ you

You’ve got my overtime, you bring me peace of mind

And there’s so much more I’d like to do

I only wanna find the love my heart’s been searchin’ for

I’d climb most every mountain swim from shore to shore

Just to feel the soft caress from your warm embrace

In this ocean of love, no one can take your place

Love overboard

Oh, my love’s in need of help

Love overboard

Sure can’t help myself

Love overboard

I don’t know what to do

Love overboard

So in love with you

Love overboard

I’m running out of time

Love overboard

I’m ’bout to lose my mind

Love overboard

I don’t know what to do

Love overboard

I’m so in love with you

All my friends keep telling me to let you go

Between the two of us how could they ever know

About the love you been givin’?

Seems some people like to live their life so very close

I like to let go sometime, so I can flow with the time

I’ve done made up my mind, you’re the only one for me

Oh, my love’s overboard

(Gladys, Gladys, Gladys)

I’m overboard

Can’t help myself

I’m overboard

Uh, the bottom may be deep

But your love, so very sweet

Well overboard

Love overboard

Love overboard

So in love with you

Love overboard

Runnin’ out of time

Love overboard

About to lose my mind

Love overboard

I don’t know what to do

Love overboard

So in love with you

Spinnin’, fallin’

People, aah, people

Love’s callin’, I’m fallin’

S-O-S-O-S-O-S-O-S

Love’s overboard

My love’s in need of help

Love overboard

I just can’t help myself

Love overboard

I don’t know what to do

Love overboard

Gladys Knight Hero

It must have been cold there in my shadow

To never have sunlight on your face

You been content to let me shine

You always walked a step behind

I was the one with all the glory

While you were the one with all the strength

Only a face without a name

I never once heard you complain

Did you ever know that you’re my hero

And everything I’d like to be

I can fly higher than an eagle

With you as the wind beneath my wings

It might have appeared to go unnoticed

But I’ve got it all right here, right here in my heart

I want you to know I know the truth, oh baby

Oh, when I would be nothing without you

Did you ever know that you’re my hero

And everything I’d like to be

I can fly higher, higher than an eagle

With you as the wind beneath my wings

For you are the wind beneath my wings, oh baby

Gladys Knight Going Ups And The Coming Downs

One day you say you love me

The next day it’s goodbye

The next you say you’re sorry

And you wanna give it one more try

Ooh, the way you change your mind

Time and time again

Well, I don’t know if I’m behind

Or just about to end, hey

Certain lies, smiles and frowns

The goin’ ups and the comin’ downs

Ooh, hoo

Ooh, hoo

One minute you’re warm and lovin’

The next your heart’s grown cold

The way you keep me guessin’

Is killin’ my soul

Ooh, just when my hopes run high

And I think I’ve got it made

Hey…hey…along comes a rainy day

To rain on my parade, hey, hey, hey

Certain lies, smiles and frowns

The goin’ ups and the comin’ downs

Oh…ho…

I don’t know just what it is about you

That keeps me from walkin’ out the door

Mmm…mmm…hmm…

Just when I think that I can get along without you

You just say something nice

And I come struttin’ back for more

One day our world’s a dream

Next it falls apart, mmm, hmm

And I don’t even think you know

What you’re doin’ to my heart

Mmm, I guess I’ll never learn

Some people never do

But when I feel like givin’ up

I just can’t give up on you, hey, hey, hey

Certain lies, smiles and frowns, huh

The goin’ ups and the comin’ downs, hey, hey, hey

Certain lies, smiles and frowns

The goin’ ups and the comin’ downs

Certain lies, smiles and frowns

The goin’ ups and the comin’ downs, hey, hey, hey, hey

Certain lies, smiles and frowns

The goin’ ups

Gladys Knight Searching For The Real Thing

Ooh

There’s that old feeling again

When our eyes met, and then

That old, deep old fascination

Making us feel those warm sensations

We wanna call it love, but chill and just be patient

I don’t know what it is but

We running in circles trying to find out where love live

I don’t know what it is, no

Don’t have to be perfect but don’t let it hurt me

[Chorus:]

Looks like another one

Feels like thee other one

Not here for fun

I think I better run (away)

All the things you say

All the games you play

Not for me

I’m on my way

Searching for the real thing

Had a little talk with myself

I told me get more information

Before give him conformation

Loves not a game or just a thrill

Your heart keeps trying to tell ya

That ain’t really what love is

I don’t know [x2]

We keep running in circles

Trying to find out where love lives

Don’t know why [x2]

Don’t have to be perfect but don’t let it hurt me

[Chorus x2]

Thought I didn’t see ya now (didn’t ya, didn’t ya)

Thought ya could play me now (didn’t ya, didn’t ya)

Seen that face before

Go head, head on out the door

Thought I didn’t know ya now (didn’t ya, didn’t ya)

Thought ya could throw me now (didn’t ya, didn’t ya)

I’ve seen that face before

Now I’m gonna head on out the door

[Chorus x3]

Gladys Knight Save The Overtime

Darling, don’t stay too long

Pretty baby, I know you’re working hard for me

Darling, don’t stay away too long

Pretty baby, save the overtime for me

I walk around, tryin’ to find something to do

Baby, until your return

Turn on TV or play some solitaire

It does the job for a while

But nothing takes the place of you

Just ain’t no substitute

‘Cause you’re all that I want in me

Only you can set me free

Darling, don’t stay too long

Pretty baby, I know you’re working hard for me

Darling, don’t stay away too long

Pretty baby, save the overtime for me

My love starts to come down hard on me

And I just can’t find no relief, no

Only until I see your face again

I’m gonna be in such misery

Runnin’ to the door, peepin’ out the window

Hopin’ to see only you

Listen for the phone, checkin’ out the tick tock

Countin’ if it’s a certain time

Hear me now, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1

Darling, don’t stay too long

Pretty baby, I know you’re working hard for me

Darling, baby, don’t stay away too long

Pretty baby, save the overtime for me, for me

Baby, baby, save the overtime

Save the overtime

I know you have your eight hours to do

But it just don’t feel good without ya

Oh, how I’m missing you, oh, feelin’ blue

I know it’s crazy, but I, I walk around

Tryin’ to find something else to do

Pretty baby, until your return

Turnin’ on the TV, or play some solitaire

Does the job for a while

Find yourself runnin’ to the door

Peepin’ out the window, hopin’ to see only you

Listen for the phone, checkin’ out the clock

Countin’ if it’s a certain time

Hear me now, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1

Darling, don’t stay too long

Pretty baby, I know you’re working hard for me

Darling, don’t stay away too long

Pretty baby, save the overtime for me

Darling, don’t stay too long

Pretty baby, I know you’re working hard for me

Darling, don’t stay away too long

Gladys Knight So Sad The Song

I know that we both talked it over

And said it’s best to forget

And we’ll leave all our memories behind us

It’s better ended and yet

So sad the song of

Two empty lives

When that moment of truth

Suddenly arrives

And so sad the song

Of what might have been

You see a lifetime of dreams

Scattered in the wind

Together

We belong together

Never was that one lovely word

Easier to say

And so sad the song

Of just remembering when

Knowing the love of your life

Will never come again

So sad the song

That says goodbye

Together

We belong together

And I’ll love you forever

On that you can rely

So would it be wrong

To give our love

Just one more try

So sad the song

That says goodbye

(So sad the song)

That says goodbye

Gladys Knight Immersed

It’s okay, to let the tears flow

Let it wash away, all the things you’ve held inside

You witnessed tragedies, take so many lives

But even that couldn’t brake you, cause your were destined to survive

It’ll be alright, you can let go

Of the thoughts that filled your mind, and brought you sleepless nights

You may not understand, but the road thats up ahead

It’s much brighter than the past

And suffering won’t last

[Chorus:]

So, don’t ever walk away

And don’t ever be afraid

Cause you’re immersed in, His love

Even though the storm is here

Soon the clouds will disappear

Cause you’re immersed in, His love

It was hard to endure, but it made you stronger

And you survived

Every obstacle, that was inside

There was times when life pushed you, close to the edge

But you stood a champion

And refused to give in

[Chorus]

Nothing, can separate, you from, the heart of God

He has, the power, to mend all the broken pieces

Lift up, your head

Let the light, dry away

All of yesterday’s, pain

And bring, you, sunshine

[Chorus x2]

You’re immersed in, His love

You’re immersed, immersed in, His love

Oh, yeah

Gladys Knight I Heard It Through The Grapevine

Ooh, I bet you’re wond’rin’ how I knew

Baby, baby, baby, ’bout your plans to make me blue (how)

With some other girl you knew before

Between the two of us girls ya know I love you more

It took me by surprise I must say

When I found out yesterday.

Don’t ya know that I heard it through the grapevine

Not much longer would you be mine

Oh, don’t ya know that I heard it through the grapevine

And I’m just about, just about, just about, to lose my mind

Oh yes, I am, Oh yes, I am, Oh yes, I am.

Baby won’t you listen to me.

Baby, take a good look at these tears in my eyes

Boy take a good look at these tears of mine

Baby, baby these tears I can’t hold inside

Losin’ you would end my life you see

Because you mean that much to me

You could’ve told me yourself

That you love some body else.

Instead I heard it through the grapevine

Oh-h, not much longer you be mine

Oh, I heard it, yes, I heard it (heard it through the grapevine)

Oh, just about, just about, just about, to lose my mind

Oh yes, I am, Oh yes, I am, Oh yes, I am

Go-o-o-o-o, go

Go, I gotta go

Go, go

You gotta let me go

Go, go, go

I gotta go whoa, whoa, whoa

Say believe half of what you see

Oh, ho, and none of what you hear

Baby baby, but I just can’t help bein’ confused

If it’s true please baby, won’t ya tell me dear

Oh-h-h, do you plan to let me go

For the other girl you loved before?

Don’t ya know that I heard through the grapevine

Not much longer would you be mine

Don’t ya know that I heard it, yes I heard it

Gladys Knight Rose Bouquet

We were somethin’, you and me

Yeah, we had ’em rollin’ in the aisles

We got it right once, didn’t we

We had our shot and missed it by a mile

Forget the bitter end

Can you remember when

We sang, we laughed

They all watched us dance

They circled around us

And toasted to forever

We played to win

We never gave in

And we threw it all away

Like your rose bouquet

Passion flows like a long white gown

But it ain’t easy to keep your love alive

We hoped each other would come around

We’ll use the lessons for better luck next time

But how sweet it was back then

Do you remember when

We sang, we laughed

They all watched us dance

They circled around us

And toasted to forever

We played to win

We never gave in

And we threw it all away

Like your rose bouquet
