Raphael Saadiq Tick Tock

You see, baby

I ain’t going nowhere …. no

I’m just gon’ wait on you

Girl, I swear

I’m here when you need me, you should know

I can always listen, so

‘Cause, girl you’re my baby (baby)

This thing that you’re going through

Just do what you got to do

And love will show you the rest, girl

How much time do you need

To solve all your deeds?

‘Cause I could go for a ride!

Now, tell me one thing, please

Nobody will shuffle me

‘Cause we might just have a chance, girl

[Chorus:]

I will wait on you, my dear

Even if it takes 1, 000 years

I believe that love will see us through

But, for right now here’s what we gon’ do

My friends say I’m slippin’ over you

I wonder how they knew

But, I guess I’m home every night

I still have visions of you

No other girl will do

Shit, I just got to kiss you

And, I know this can’t be the end

We got to be free from sin

At least we can try

But, here’s what we gonna do

‘Cause I understand you

Let’s make out just one more time

[Chorus:]

I will wait on you, my dear

Even if it takes 1, 000 years

I believe that love will see us through

But, for right now here’s what we gon’ do

Forever will I wait on you

And, I hope that you feel like I do

It’s so hard for me to wear my watch

Because all I hear is tick and tock

You see, sometimes, lady

When I’m alone by myself (yeah)

All I can do is think about the times we use to share

Think about the good times, baby

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah

And, you know another thing baby

It ain’t the same no more when I go out at night

I get a bunch of numbers, baby

And, they all just stay in my pockets for days

I don’t wanna call nobody else

I don’t wanna see nobody else

I don’t wanna work nobody else

But, I guess I’ll – I guess I’ll just wait

[Chorus:]

I will wait on you, my dear

Even if it takes 1, 000 years

I believe that love will see us through

But, for right now here’s what we gon’ do

Forever will I wait on you

And, I hope that you feel like I do

It’s so hard for me to wear my watch

Because all I hear is tick and tock (tick, tick, tick, tick, tick tock)

Oh yeah, baby!

Come on back home, baby

Lord, have mercy

Please! Please! Please!

Raphael Saadiq Staying In Love

When I met you, I said hello

We had a chat, here we go

I’m so good now, I feel your heart

When you kiss me, I hit the floor

I couldn’t plan this, went on for days

And that’s why I can’t imagine when

I’m so grateful that you are here

I feel the sunshine when you appear

Girl you changed my life, my whole life around

You make me see, you make fun of me

See I never want this to die

All of life just should never ever end

Now there’s war, to remove the floor

The more we listen, the more we know

Let’s take a stand before taking three

For today, today is all we see, see

Falling in love can be easy

Staying in love is too tricky

Falling in love can be easy

Staying in love is too tricky

You know I love the way you hold me hard

I tell all the girls don’t even try

I found the women of my life

I don’t even have to think twice

Took me places baby I never go

‘Cause I sit back ’cause she’s a show

What I’m thinking she’s thinking too

Girl I swear I’m never leaving you

When you put your hand in mine and you’re in my hand

I know that we will be the best of friends

Who would have thought after all this time

We’d be searching for another life

How could love ever fool us both

After we took turns recitin’ poems

Girl it makes me want to cry

‘Cause now we’re living separate lives, separate lives

Falling in love can be easy

Staying in love is too tricky, so tricky, baby

Falling in love can be easy

Staying in love is too tricky

Fallin’ in love

Sho’ enough gonna be tricky baby

We try, we try baby, see

Falling in love can be easy

Staying in love is too tricky

Falling in love can be easy

Staying in love is too tricky

Raphael Saadiq Excuse Me

Raphael Saadiq Different Times

I been in some hard times, I seen a lot of good times

But everyday I count my blessings this way ’cause I know that everyday’s a different day.

My friends can change but his will never change.

And I knew there would be some time, when I would second guess my mind.

So I kept on walking, kept on striving,

Kept on singing and guess who showed up.

As I walked down the street one day, I thought I heard a brother say

‘Living in bad conditions can make you feel like no one,’

As long as I, that’s why I always try and do my best to search inside.

But I knew there would be a day, when I had to look the other way.

So I close my eyes and kept on pushin’

I just kept looking and guess who showed up.

I told myself one day to falll on my knees and pray

And never listen to noone if they can’t be true to you

No one should spend precious time living for material love

His money, no money no money, can make me happy.

Now it looks a lot clearer outside, ’cause I’m using my eyes.

I close my eyes and… Kept on pushing,

I just stopped looking and guess who showed up.

[Bridge:]

My friend won’t let you down,

He’s always been around.

That’s one thing I know for sure.

Even when I’m wrong, he’s right at my door.

He’ll never ignore.

Yes, I got a lotta things to say, I can’t say them in all one day.

I’ll take no credit for the blessings that He’s given to me

Without Him I know that Saadiq could never, ever, ever be.

When I thought it couldn’t get no better, just when I thought it was almost over.

Oh noooo

I close my eyes and kept on pushin’

I just kept looking and guess who showed up.

Oooooh, oooh…

I close my eyes and kept on pushin’

I just kept looking and guess who showed up.

I told myself one day, to fall on my knees and pray. [4x]

[Bridge]
