Martika Safe In The Arms Of Love

You say my heart’s an open book

There are pages of my life you’ve never seen

You’re always there between the lines

But there’s so much more you just can’t seem to read

Pieces of dreams

Pull us our separate ways

But we’ll return someday

So let the wind blow

‘Cause my heart knows

We were meant to be together from the start

When the stars shine

Over one sky

I’ll have faith

I’ll be safe in the arms of love

Oh, yeah

You take me to another world

It feels so natural, so right

Then we awaken to reality

‘Cause we both know that now is not the time

Under your spell

I’ll never be all that I can

But I’ll come back again

So let the wind blow

‘Cause my heart knows

We were meant to be together from the start

When the stars shine

Over one sky

I’ll have faith

I’ll be safe in the arms of love

I’ll have faith

What’s mine is mine

And no one can take it away from me

I believe that in the end

We’ll never have to be apart again

So let the wind blow

‘Cause my heart knows

We were meant to be together from the start

When the stars shine

Over one sky

I’ll have faith

I’ll be safe in the arms of love

Yeah…

Martika Pride And Prejudice

Listen…

Growing frightened of the sound of my own voice

I really didn’t want to listen, but I had no choice

All the things you taught me begin to ring untrue

Now all I wanna do, all I wanna do is love you

Pride and prejudice

Keep us from being together

Lies and cowardice

The walls that keep us locked out

Sticks and stones may break us

But the fire of hate will burn us down

Now we’re all alone

With the war inside our souls

Everything I’m feeling is reflected in your eyes

(Can’t you see?)

But caught up in a struggle and too blind to realize

That to love without connection

There’s a rule that makes us strong

The only place to find it

Is deep inside and it’s been there all along

Pride and prejudice

Keep us from being together

Lies and cowardice

The walls that keep us locked out

Sticks and stones may break us

But the fire of hate will burn us down

Now we’re all alone

With the war inside our souls

There is a hunger in the human heart

That leads us to the light

There is a higher power

To teach us wrong from right

Pride and prejudice

Keep us from being together

Lies and cowardice

The walls that keep us locked out

Sticks and stones may break us

But the fire of hate will burn us down

Now we’re all alone

With the war inside our souls

Inside our souls

No more hate, no more lies

We’re all the same in God’s eyes

Show some faith and peace will come

Give your heart and trust in love

No more pain, no more tears

Time to chase away the fears

Make this world a better place

Resurrect the human race

Let love in, let love in to your heart

Let love in, let love in to your heart

Martika Temptation

Come over here

Right now, yeah

Just you and me

The image of the way it’s gonna be

Close by my side

Livin’ in the luxury of paradise

Did you ever want something so bad, you’d risk it all

No matter what the the consequences are

You’ve lost control of something deep inside your soul

And now it’s gone a little bit too far

Temptation

Tappin’ on the back of my neck

Up and down my spine

Workin’ on my mind

I haven’t got rid of it yet

Temptation

Every day it’s haunting me back

Scratchin’ on my brain

Drivin’ me insane

I can’t seem to get on track

I know you’ve got

Oh, someone in your life but I can’t stop

Oh, we’ve tried to be just friends

But you feel it just like I do, so don’t pretend

‘Cause you know you want it so bad that you’d risk it all

No matter what the consequences are

You’ve lost control of something deep inside your soul

And now it’s gone a little bit too far

Temptation

Tappin’ on the back of my neck

Up and down my spine

Workin’ on my mind

I haven’t got rid of it yet

Temptation

Every day it’s haunting me back

Scratchin’ on my brain

Drivin’ me insane

I can’t seem to get on track

Afraid you’ve lost a part of yourself

All your thoughts go to someone else

Bit by bit ’til there’s nothing inside

Temptation is the question that you can’t decide

‘Cause you know you want it so bad that you’d risk it all

Temptation

Tappin’ on the back of my neck

Up and down my spine

Workin’ on my mind

I haven’t got rid of it yet

Temptation

Every day it’s haunting me back

Scratchin’ on my brain

Drivin’ me insane

I can’t seem to get on track

Temptation

Tappin’ on the back of my neck

Up and down my spine

Workin’ on my mind

I haven’t got rid of it yet

Temptation

Every day it’s haunting me back

Scratchin’ on my brain

Drivin’ me insane

I can’t seem to get on track

You can’t control this feelin’ that you’re feelin’

And everyday life seems less than real and

You’re body and mind don’t connect to your soul

You try everything but there’s no place to go

Admit to yourself that you have an addiction

The love in your life has caused you infliction

The deeper you go, the higher you search

But before it gets better it’s gonna get worst

Kick it in!

Temptation that you can’t live without

Given you something to think about

Temptation that you can’t live without

Given you something to think about

Martika Water

Like water

You see into me

You reach into me

And I ripple round in circles

Reflections

Of my dreams in yours

Bring me to the shores of desire

I have been like a desert creature

Wandering on this earth so cracked and dry

Only to survive

But now your love is bringing me alive

Like water

How could I do without you

My body heat will not cool down

Like water

I could not live without you

I want to dive so deep into you I might drown

Tu eres como el agua

You know me

An invisible line

Connects us in time

And now there is no distance

Between us

You see what I feel

And all I am feeling is you

Tu eres como el agua

No se que haria sin ti mi amor

Yo no pudiera vivir sin ti

Quiero ahogarme en ti y nunca

Regresar

Como el agua me ves tan clara

Siempre puedes tu llegar a mi

Me siento tan feliz

Tu amor me da razon para vivir

Like water

Like water

Martika Toy Soldiers

Step by step

Heart to heart

Left, right, left

We all fall down

Like toy soldiers

It wasn’t my intention to mislead you

It never should have been this way

What can I say?

It’s true, I did extend the invitation

I never knew how long you’d stay

When you hear temptation call

It’s your heart that takes, takes the fall

(Won’t you come out and play with me?)

Step by step

Heart to heart

Left, right, left

We all fall down

Like toy soldiers

Bit by bit

Torn apart

We never win

But the battle wages on

For toy soldiers

It’s getting hard to wake up in the morning

My head is spinning constantly

How can it be?

How could I be so blind to this addiction?

If I don’t stop, the next one’s gonna be me

Only emptiness remains

It replaces all, all the pain

(Won’t you come out and play with me?)

Step by step

Heart to heart

Left, right, left

We all fall down

Like toy soldiers

Bit by bit

Torn apart

We never win

But the battle wages on

For toy soldiers

We never win

Only emptiness remains

It replaces all, all the pain

(Won’t you come out and play with me?)

Step by step

Heart to heart

Left, right, left

We all fall down

Like toy soldiers

Bit by bit

Torn apart

We never win

But the battle wages on

For toy soldiers

Step by step

Heart to heart

Left, right, left

We all fall down

Like toy soldiers

Bit by bit

Torn apart

We never win

But the battle wages on

For toy soldiers

Martika You Got Me Into This

You got me into this

Yeah you got me into this

You got me into this love

You got me into this

Boy you’re too hard to resist

You got me into this love

They said you’re trouble

With a capital T

But I just couldn’t see

Guess my heart was blind

All those sweet things

You would say to me

I took seriously

Was I wasting my time

I’m not the one who said I love you first

But I was the last one to say it

And that’s what really hurt

Now I can’t sleep at night

Waiting for your call

Staring at the wall

Wondering if I’m on your mind

And maybe…

You’re thinking of me too

But what can I do

I can’t read between the lines

You led me to believe you were in love

So prove it or lose it

I’ve waited long enough

I’m into this

You got me into this

I can’t get out of it

You got me into this love

Martika Spirit

When the sands of time are running out

When the voice of oppression screams and shouts

When all seems lost, you’ve got to try

To never let your spirit die

An angel came to greet me

It happened in a dream

He spoke of my reality

Not being what it seems

Within us lives a new world

This world, he calmly said

Will only be when evil and

All its sorrows are truly dead, whoa

When the sands of time are running out

(Spirit)

When the voice of oppression screams and shouts

(Spirit)

When all seems lost, you got to try

(Spirit)

To never let your spirit die

(Never let your spirit die)

You cannot accept deception

And real love will never lie

We must try to be the chosen few

And keep that love alive

(Keep that love alive)

Yeah, we will never be unfulfilled, no

And your deck will be full of aces

‘Cause, whenever the spirit wills

We can go to higher places (oh-oh)

When the sands of time are running out

(Spirit)

When the voice of oppression screams and shouts

(Spirit)

When all seems lost, you got to try

(Spirit)

To never let your spirit die

(Hey, hey, yeah, yeah)

(Spirit)

(Hey, hey, yeah, yeah)

(Spirit)

[Rap:]

You got to view this world

Through kaleidoscopic eyes

You got to see every color

If you want to see the reasons why

An angel came to greet me

It happened in a dream

He spoke of my reality

Not being what it seems

Within us lives the new world

This world, he calmly said

Will only be when evil and

All it’s sorrows are truly dead

Spirit, spirit, spirit, spirit, yeah!

When the time is running out

When the voice of oppression screams and shouts

(Spirit)

When all seems lost, you got to try

To never let your spirit die

Never, never, never, never

When the sands of time are running out

(Spirit)

When the voice of oppression screams and shouts

(Spirit)

When all seems lost, you got to try

(Spirit)

To never let your spirit die

When the sands of time are running out

(Spirit)

When the voice of oppression screams and shouts

(Spirit)

When all seems lost, you got to try

(Spirit)

To never let your spirit die

(Spirit)

Don’t ever give up

Martika More Than You Know

If there’s a fire in my eyes

It should come as no surprise to you

If I’ve shown you once or twice

How I feel it’s because it’s the truth

(You know that it’s true)

Wanted to tell you so many times

How I feel when you’re with me

Now that I found you

I know that you are my destiny

I love you more than you know

This feeling’s so strong inside

I won’t let you go

I’m afraid to show it

‘Cuz I don’t wanna blow it

I love you more than you know

You know you’ve got me hypnotized

But that’s something I should hide from you

If I feel so mesmerized

It’s because of the things that you do

(The things that you do)

I only wish I could read your mind

So I’d know just how you feel

Send me a signal

Tell me your feelings are just as real

I don’t mean to put you under pressure

But it’s something that I can’t control

And though I’d give you the world if I could

I’m afraid to let you know

‘Cuz I don’t wanna lose your love

Martika Take Me To Forever

Situations come along

And I can’t understand myself sometimes

Feel as if I were drowning

Won’t you lift me up?

And sometimes I can’t face it, no, no

When I take a look inside

And I just don’t like what I see

Is there nowhere left to hide?

Because I think about tomorrow

And what I really know

Is that I can’t contain this feeling

Growing deep in my soul

Take me to forever

Point me to the sky

‘Cause I don’t like it

And I don’t wanna spent another sleepless night

We can be together

You can make it right

And I won’t feel like my life was a waste of time

Reaching in the darkness, mm-hmm

My innocence is long, long gone

I’m caught up in this loneliness

Has time done me wrong?

‘Cause when I look into the mirror

I see what I’ve become

And I’ve lost my own direction

Only you, only you can lead me home

Take me to forever

Point me to the sky

‘Cause I don’t like it

And I don’t wanna spent another sleepless night

We can be together

You can make it right

Time will turn all the pages into memories

Ever since you touched my heart

I have wanted to be free

Take me to forever

Point me to the sky

‘Cause I don’t like it

And I don’t wanna spent another sleepless night

We can be together

You can make it right

Take me to forever

Point me to the sky

‘Cause I don’t like it

And I don’t wanna spent another sleepless night

We can be together

You can make it right
