Tamia Almost

[Verse 1]

Can you tell me

How can one miss what she’s never had

How could I reminisce when there is no past

How could I have memories of being happy with you boy

Could someone tell me how can this be

How could my mind pull up incidents

Recall dates and times that never happened

How could we celebrate a love that’s to late

And how could I really mean the words I’m bout to say

[Chorus]

I missed the times that we almost shared

I miss the love that was almost there

I miss the times that we use to kiss

At least in my dreams

Just let me take my time and reminisce

I miss the times that we never had

What happened to us we were almost there

Whoever said it’s impossible to miss when you never had

Never almost had you

[Verse 2]

I cannot believe I let you go

Or what I should say I should’ve grabbed you up and never let you go

I should’ve went out with you

I should’ve made you my boo boy

Yes that’s one time I should’ve broke the rules

I should’ve went on a date

Should’ve found a way to escape

Should’ve turned a almost into

If it happened now its to late

How could I celebrate a love that wasn’t real

And if it didn’t happen why does my heart feel

[Chorus]

I missed the times that we almost shared

I miss the love that was almost there

I miss the times that we use to kiss

At least in my dreams

Just let me take my time and reminisce

I miss the times that we never had

What happened to us we were almost there

Whoever said it’s impossible to miss when you never had

Never almost had you

[Verse 3]

(sometimes I wanna rub ya, some nights I wanna hug ya)

And you seem to be the perfect one for me

You (some nights I wanna touch ya but tonight I wanna love ya)

You’re all that I ever wanted

And you’re my everything yes its true

Boy its hard to be close to you

My love

I know it may sound crazy

But I’m in love with you

[Chorus]

I missed the times that we almost shared

I miss the love that was almost there

I miss the times that we use to kiss

At least in my dreams

Just let me take my time and reminisce

I miss the times that we never had

What happened to us we were almost there

Whoever said it’s impossible to miss when you never had

Never almost had you

I missed the times that we almost shared

I miss the love that was almost there (sometimes I wanna rub ya)

I miss the times that we use to kiss

At least in my dreams

Just let me take my time and reminisce (but tonight I wanna love ya)

I miss the times that we never had

What happened to us we were almost there

Whoever said its impossible to miss when you never had

Never, never almost had you (but tonight I wanna love ya)

Tamia Please Protect My Heart

Baby you should know that,

I’ve been afraid to try.

I’m healing from some things and

My tears are pale and dry.

I said “I’m through with love”

You made it all a lie.

You turned my never ever

Into one more time

[Chorus:]

If I happen to fall (I feel it coming on)

In love (Think I could fall in love)

Please protect my heart

Happen to fall (Been through so many things)

In love (I’m tired of fragile, baby)

please protect my heart

Baby you should know that,

I like what’s going on.

The way you make me feel,

I’ve seen this all before.

You are incredible,

I can’t deny that, no.

Could be my everything but,

Baby don’t break my heart

[Chorus:]

If I happen to fall (I feel it coming on)

In love (Think I could fall in love)

Please protect my heart.

Happen to fall (Been through so many things)

In love (I’m tired of fragile, baby)

Please protect my heart

Deep in my heart I believe that,

You really care for me.

I pray that this time,

Love lasts eternally

[Chorus:]

If I happen to fall (I feel it coming on)

In love (Think I could fall in love)

Please protect my heart

Happen to fall (Been through so many things)

In love (I’m tired of fragile, baby)

Tamia Close To You

Why do birds suddenly appear

Every time you are near?

Just like me, they long to be

Close to you.

Why do stars fall down from the sky

Every time you walk by?

Just like me, they long to be

Close to you.

On the day that you were born

and the angels got together

And decided to create a dream come true

So they sprinkled moon dust

in your hair

And starlight in your eyes

Like they do

That is why all the guys in town

Follow you all around

Just like me, they long to be

Close to you.

I’d settle for an hour

And if you could stay just for one day

That would make me so happy happy baby

Cuz I’m that kind of guy

Who’s going to love and treat you like a queen

That is why all the girls in town

Follow you all around

Just like me, they long to be

Close to you.

Come a little closer baby

Lay your head up on my shoulder baby

Boy you know I cant deny it

You done already set my soul on fire

Just like me, they long to be

Close to you.

Just What I Want Baby

[Chorus (x2)]

Tamia Is It Over Yet

Tell me when I can open my eyes

I don’t want to watch you walk out that door

There’s no easy way to get through goodbye

I’d probably try and talk you into staying once more

Or I’d lie and say it’s all for the best

Wish you luck and say I have no regrets

But I’m not up to being strong

So I’ll wait until you’re gone

Is it over yet, is it over yet?

A taxi’s waiting in the driveway for you

You call my name, I guess your ready to leave

I’d like to help you with a suitcase or two

But I’m afraid I’m gonna wind up down on my knees

I should tell you that I want you to go

I really need to spend some time on my own

Smile and say goodbye

So you don’t see me dying inside

Is it over yet, is it over yet?

I should lie and say it’s all for the best

Wish you luck and say I have no regrets

But I’m not up to being strong

So I’ll wait until your gone

Is it over yet, is it over yet?
