John Legend God Only Knows

[John Legend:]

I may not always love you

But as long as there are stars above you

You never need to doubt it

I’ll make you so sure about it

God only knows what I’d be without you

[Cynthia Erivo:]

If you should ever leave me

Though life would still go on, believe me

The world could show nothing to me

So what good would living do me

[Cynthia Erivo & Together:]

God only knows what I’d be without you

God only knows what I’d be without you

[John Legend (Cynthia Erivo):]

If you should ever leave me

Though life would still go on, believe me

(The world could show nothing to me

So what good would living do me)

[John Legend (Cynthia Erivo) {Together}:]

{God only knows what I’d be without you}

Oh, oh, God only knows what I’d be without you

(Ooh, God only knows

God only knows what I’d be without you)

Oh, God only knows what I’d be without you

(God only knows) God only knows

[Cynthia Erivo (Together):]

God only knows what I’d be without you

(God only knows what I’d be without you)

John Legend Little Ghetto Boy

[Black Thought]

My grandmother suits was tailor made, Sundays Mahalia played

Simple familiar ways, like how she kneeled and prayed

Willin, master forgive us, our trust pastors had us real afraid

I never listened yet I still obeyed

I got to see how Philly played at such an early age

What my father was into sent him to his early grave

Then moms started chasin that base, like Willie Mays

My childhood was all of 40 nights and 40 days

Trouble was my ball and chain, shorties would call me names

Humble beginnings but a star is what it all became

My journey from a dirty hallway, to the Hall of Fame

Music my therapeutic way to cope with all this pain

Was headed for the drain, soakin before the rainwater came

And chaos, into the order came

I started doin what I’m ‘sposed to do in life

Tryin to move out of the dark, and closer to the light

They say if you get a chance to do it, overdo it right

Tomorrow isn’t promised every time, you say goodnight

Knahmtalkinabout? Uhh, yo

John Legend Take Me Away

Oh, la, la, la, la, la

Yeah, yeah

We dance and sing somewhere in between heaven and hell

Gabrielle, that was her name

Everyone was smiling, even through their tears, under a spell

But in Gabby’s eyes, nothing

I asked do you not like the music?

She says it’s alright

But she dances to her own sad tune, she said

Take me away from here

Take me somewhere where love is like breathing

I don’t care where we go, long as I’m there with you, baby

Long as I’m there with you

I could tell, she’s been through pain I could only dream

Nightmares to live where you live

Tears well in her eyes, but she wouldn’t let them fall

I’d give the world to know where her smile is

I asked will you dance with me now

Let me try to figure out

The fastest route out of town and she says

Take me away from here

Take me somewhere, where love is like breathing

I don’t care where we go, long as I’m there with you baby

Oh, oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, I got a full tank of gas, girl

Anywhere you wanna go, girl

All you have to do is ask girl, ohh she said

Take me away from here

Take me somewhere, where love is like breathing

I don’t care where we go, long as I’m there with you baby

Come on and take me away from here

Take me somewhere, where love is like breathing

I don’t care where we go long as I’m there with you

John Legend Out Of Sight

[Verse 1:]

It’s a celebration baby, step out with me.

Draped in your finest clothes and accessories.

I notice you’ve been focused on the stress of the week.

But it’s Friday tonight.

Spend the night out with me.

[Prechorus:]

Let’s hit the party tonight.

That will be out of sight.

No matter where we decide, it’s gon’ be on tonight.

You look you’re ready and right.

You showed me out of sight.

We’re coming home late tonight.

[Chorus 1:]

We gonna do it right right.

We’ll do it right right.

Our hands are sky high.

From left to the right.

Don’t look that the time.

Just let it fly by.

We live the good life.

And we’ll do it right right.

We’ll do it right right.

[Verse 2:]

Ain’t too fast or slow, it’s just enough to get down.

Might be from the country but were going to town.

This weekend we can freak a leek all on the floor.

First get low, then come close.

Let the music control, oh.

[Prechorus:]

Let’s hit the party tonight.

That will be out of sight.

No matter where we decide, it’s gon’ be on tonight.

You look you’re ready and right.

You showed me out of sight.

We’re coming home late tonight.

[Chorus 1:]

We gonna do it right right.

We’ll do it right right.

Our hands are sky high.

From left to the right.

Don’t look that the time.

Just let it fly by.

We live the good life.

And we’ll do it right right.

We’ll do it right right.

[Bridge:]

This is the last call.

Fill up your glass ya’ll.

We’ll dance until they play the last song.

It’s the end of the night.

Now it’s just you and I.

It’s time for us to take this party back home.

[Prechorus:]

Let’s hit the party tonight.

That will be out of sight.

No matter where we decide, it’s gon’ be on tonight.

You look you’re ready and right.

You showed me out of sight.

When we go home late tonight.

[Chorus 2:]

Girl we gon do it right right.

Until the daylight.

We’ll do it light right.

Yes, we’ll do it all night.

Don’t look at the time.

Just let it fly by.

Yes, we’ll live the good life.

And we’ll do it right right.

Then we say bye bye.

Then we say bye bye

(bye bye)

Bye bye

(bye bye)

Bye bye

(bye bye)

Bye bye.

John Legend Ordinary People

Girl, I’m in love with you

This ain’t the honeymoon

Past the infatuation phase

Right in the thick of love

At times we get sick of love

It seems like we argue everyday

I know I misbehaved

And you made your mistakes

And we both still got room left to grow

And though love sometimes hurts

I still put you first

And we’ll make this thing work

But I think we should take it slow

We’re just ordinary people

We don’t know which way to go

‘Cause we’re ordinary people

Maybe we should take it slow

Take it slow

This time we’ll take it slow

Take it slow

This time we’ll take it slow

This ain’t a movie, no

No fairy tale conclusion yo

It gets more confusing everyday

Sometimes it’s heaven-sent

Then we head back to hell again

We kiss then we make up on the way

I hang up you call

We rise and we fall

And we feel like just walking away

But as our love advances

We take second chances

Though it’s not a fantasy

I still want you to stay

We’re just ordinary people

We don’t know which way to go

‘Cause we’re ordinary people

Maybe we should take it slow

Take it slow

This time we’ll take it slow

Take it slow

This time we’ll take it slow

Take it slow

Maybe we’ll live and learn

Maybe we’ll crash and burn

Maybe you’ll stay

Maybe you’ll leave

Maybe you’ll return

Maybe another fight

Maybe we won’t survive

But maybe we’ll grow

We never know

Baby, you and I

We’re just ordinary people

We don’t know which way to go

‘Cause we’re ordinary people

Maybe we should take it slow

We’re just ordinary people

We don’t know which way to go

‘Cause we’re ordinary people

Maybe we should take it slow

Take it slow

This time we’ll take it slow

Take it slow

This time we’ll take it slow

Take it slow, slow

This time we’ll take it slow

Take it slow

This time we’ll take it slow

John Legend How Can I Blame You

I should’ve known when the cop told me I’m goin’ too fast

He told me

Speed like that and it’s bound to be a hell of a crash

He told me

Better late than you don’t get there, do the math

Oh you oughta be grateful

For what you have

Well what if I refuse to learn?

I see a flame, I wanna get burned

How can I blame you

For showin’ up at the party?

Lookin’ through me in that way

Saw somethin’ inside of me break

Saw me wanna make a mistake

How can I blame you

For takin’ over my daydreams?

I wanna scream it, I’m sorry

But I can’t ’cause I’m long overdue

Oh I wanna blame it on you

Why’s it hard for a man to be satisfied?

Oh, I got one glimpse of the green grass on the other side

‘Cause it’s all been comin’ to this and goddamn I won’t be denied

Oh I’m gonna take one more chance tonight

Oh, what if I refuse to learn?

I see the flame grow, I gotta get burned

How can I blame you

For showin’ up at the party?

Lookin’ through me in that way

Saw somethin’ inside of me break

Saw me wanna make a mistake

How can I blame you

For takin’ over my daydreams?

I wanna scream it, I’m sorry

But I can’t ’cause I’m long overdue

Oh I wanna blame it on you

Did I know my weakness?

Did I mount all my defenses?

Did I tell you to leave me alone?

How can I blame you?

You saw somethin’ inside of me break

You saw me wanna make a mistake

How can I blame you?

You saw somethin’ inside of me break

You saw me wanna make a mistake

How can I blame you

For takin’ over my daydreams?

I wanna scream it, I’m sorry

But I can’t ’cause I’m long overdue

Oh I wanna blame it on you

I wanna blame it on you

I wanna blame it on you, yeah

John Legend Show Me

I realized as I lay down to sleep

We haven’t spoke in weeks

So many things that I’d like to know

Come have a talk with me

I need a sign, something I can see

Why all the mystery?

I try not to fall for make believe

But what is reality?

Where do we go?

What do we know?

Life has to have a meaning

Show me the light

Show me the way

Show that you’re listening

Show me that you love me

Show me that you walk with me

Hopefully, just above me

Heaven’s watching over me

Guess it’s funny how I say thanks to you

For all you’ve given me

Sometimes the price of what you gave to me

I can’t stop questioning

O God of love, peace, and mercy

Why so much suffering?

I pray for the world, it gets worse to me

Wonder if you’re listening

When people go

Why do they go?

Why don’t you choose me?

But someday I know

I’m gonna go

I hope you’re waiting for me

Show me that you love me

Show me that you walk with me

Hopefully, just above me

Heaven’s watching over me

Maybe we’ll talk

Some other night

Right now I’ll take it easy

Won’t spent my time

Waiting to die

Enjoy the life I’m living

Show me that you love me

Show me that you walk with me

Hopefully, just above me

Heaven’s watching over me

John Legend Aim High

You don’t have to cry yourself to sleep at night with wet pillows

Girl, I know you’re hurt

Did you know that you can dry your pillows with your dreams and smile

It really works

Lay your head back in my arms, oh, I know your worth

So just reach inside your heart and pack your bags

And let’s leave this earth

Let’s aim high, oh girl

All you gotta do is close your eyes and – and visualize

Let’s aim high

You work so hard for your boss, to him it’s just work

Never considers your dreams, selfish and mean

Damn, that’s gotta hurt

Just lay your head back in my arms, girl

I know you’re worth

So allow me indulge your mind with these words

Open your eyes, you’re now a bird

Let’s aim high, girl

All you gotta do is close your eyes and – and visualize

You possess the power to do

If you concentrate, mountains will move

If you just believe that it’s true

Please make no mistake I’ll be there too

You possess the power to do

If you concentrate, mountains will move

If you just believe that it’s true

Make no mistake I’ll be there too

Let’s aim high

John Legend Waiting For Christmas

All the trees alight

All the holly’s streaming

The town has come to life

Waiting for Christmas

I still feel alone

Searching for some meaning

Until you come home

I’m waiting for Christmas with you

Christmas without you

A long dark shade of blue

I feel like I’ve been waiting here forever

All the gifts arrived

All the children singing

Gathered ’round the fire

Waiting for Christmas

I could sing along

But I can’t find the meaning

The melody feels wrong

I’m waiting for Christmas with you

When I see your face

On this Christmas day

I’ll know the light of love brought us together

But until that hour

My eyes will be wide open

I’m like a little child

Waiting for Christmas

When that morning comes

We can count our blessings

It was worth it all along

Waiting for Christmas with you
