Xscape Do Like Lovers Do

[Verse One (Kandi):]

We’ve been to the movies once or twice,

Had a candlelight dinner baby,

That was oh so nice.

I enjoy all the times at the fair,

And walking hand in hand on the beach,

With the wind in my hair.

[Bridge (Kandi):]

Oh I really like all the things you do,

But right about now my body’s calling you.

It seems like, it seems like,

It’s time to put all of that to the side.

There’s a time and place for everything,

And at this time all I ask you bring is yourself,

Cos tonight is just for you and me.

I want you to…

[Chorus (Kandi):]

Let the night wind down baby

Fall into my groove

And meet me at my house

To do like true lovers do

I want you to…

Let the night wind down baby

Fall into my groove

And meet me at my house

To do like true lovers do

[Verse Two (LaTocha):]

When you come through my doors,

Take off your clothes.

I ain’t got all mine baby,

So you won’t need yours.

The places I’ma take you,

You won’t be needing them.

So let’s stop all this talking,

And let the party begin.

[Repeat Bridge (LaTocha)]

[Repeat Chorus to fade]

[Outro:]

Let me show you how to love me,

Let me show you where to touch me,

Let me show you how to groove me.

[Repeat x2]

Xscape All About Me

[Intro by JD:]

I wanna see which posse can dance the best,

It should be easy ’cause the beat is fresh.

[Repeat x2]

[Verse One (LaTocha):]

Every time you leave the thought is left in my head,

That you’ve gotta go home to be with somebody else.

Now even though I’m sick and tired of being alone,

I still gotta ask myself if what I’m doing is wrong.

And what about you, what about you,

Don’t you think it’s time, don’t you think it’s time,

You tell her the truth?

[Chorus:]

Does she know where you go when you leave,

That you’re always with me, and it’s all about me,

Does she know it won’t be long before she’s out the door,

I’m in, number one and it’s all about me.

[Verse Two (LaTocha):]

Even if I wanted I can’t leave you right now,

‘Cause all is fair in love and war and I like how we get down.

Although I’m in love with what’s going on,

ButI still gotta ask myself if what I’m doing is wrong.

You can’t tell me she ain’t seeing the change,

She ain’t feeling no pain,

and she don’t wanna know my name.

[Repeat Chorus]

Traces of my lipstick…

Xscape Best Of My Love

You know I’ll give you the best

O yes I will my baby

[Verse One (Tamika):]

There ain’t a thing that I wouldn’t do for you,

Just gimme your wishes, I’ll make’em all come true.

I’m wrapped around your finger,

You’re every breath I take,

And I’ll be right there beside you baby,

Every step of the way.

[Chorus:]

Every second that I’m with you, god I swear I’ll love you,

Every minute that you give me baby, I’ll give you two.

Every hour that we spend together would not be enough…so,

Everyday I’m gonna give you baby,

The best of my love.

[Verse Two (LaTocha):]

So it’s not a problem for me to sacrifice, no,

Cuz everything’s better now that you’re in my life.

This ring I’ll wear forever, it means that we are one,

And no I won’t stop, can’t stop loving you baby,

Until our time is done.

[Repeat Chorus]

[Bridge (LaTocha):]

Just to be with you is all I ever wanted,

Cause with you by my side,

I know that everything will be alright.

You are the one,

You are the center of my joy,

I want this love we have to last,

Until the end of time.

[Repeat Chorus]

[Break (LaTocha):]

I’ll give you the best,

Gonna give you the best,

You know I’m giving you the best of my love

[Repeat x3]

So everyday you know I’m gonna give you the best of my love

Xscape Love’s A Funny Thing

[Intro:]

Shoop be doop

Shoop be doop doop dah

Shoop be doop

Love’s a funny thing

[Verse One:]

[Tamika]

Was only last night I felt you slip away,

I tried so hard to hide the pain inside of me babe.

I held you close but you weren’t with me,

I felt your mind a thousand miles away.

[Tiny]

I was a fool to let you break me down,

You think by now that I would know,

Just what to expect from you, oh.

Everytime I fall, I make myself believe,

That you are changing,

And some day, the sun will shine through.

[Chorus:]

Love is a funny thing,

Your love is a funny thing,

Love is a funny thing,

Oooh.

(I don’t wanna fall, don’t wanna fall in love again)

[Verse Two:]

[LaTocha]

When I first met you your heart was empty,

You were innocent and so full of joy.

But now you’ve changed and I don’t know you,

You played me baby like a toy.

[Tiny]

You see, I was surprised to see you with that girl,

When you said you’d never ever ever ever see her again, no.

I don’t want to control you, so baby if she’s gonna hold you,

Then why don’t you just stay, stay where you’ve been.

[Repeat Chorus]

(I never never wanna fall again, no no no)

[Bridge (Kandi):]

Everybody needs someone to hold them through the night,

And everybody needs someone to tell them it’s alright.

I gave you my heart and you only turned away,

So tell me baby, what’s going to make you stay.

[Repeat Chorus]

(I never ever want to fall in love again)

Shoop be doop

Shoop be doop doop dah

Shoop be doop

Love’s a funny thing

[repeat to fade]

Xscape Who Can I Run To?

[LaTocha]

As I stand here contemplating

On the right thing to decide

Will I take the wrong direction

All my life, where will I go

What lies ahead of me?

[Tamika]

I have strong determination

And I’m not afraid of change

I have yet to find that someone

Who would care to satisfy me

To stay right by me

[Chorus:]

Who can I run to

To share this empty space?

Who can I run to

When I need love?

Who can I run to

To fill this empty space with laughter?

Who can I run to

When I need love?

[Tamika]

And my mind is so confusing

Who would be that special one?

Everyday I’m trying to find you

All along, I’ve got to know

Is there a place for me?

[LaTocha]

I know love has many meanings

And a message very clear

All it takes is time and patience

To bring you near

But who got me, tell me

[Repeat Chorus]

Xscape Do You Want To?

[Intro (Tiny):]

Hey baby, I wanna know one thing…

Do you want me as much as I want you?

Say you do.

[Verse One:]

[Tiny]

Never should have kissed you,

Never made that call.

I told myself,

In love I shouldn’t fall.

Would’ve been a pleasure,

Just to know your name.

Look at me, silly me,

Now I’m back in love again.

[LaTocha]

And there’s nothing you can tell me,

Nothing I can do.

I just hope that you’re in love with me,

The way that I’m in love with you.

[Chorus:]

Do you want to,

Like I want to be in love with you.

Say you do.

Do you want to,

Like I want, I want to make love to you.

Say you do.

[Verse Two:]

[Tiny]

Never understand it,

Loving takes control.

Oh, I ask myself,

Girl, should you let it go?

That would be too crazy,

Life without you know.

Hate to think of it happening,

That you won’t be around.

[LaTocha]

Now there’s something you can show me,

Something you can say.

Promise me you’ll stay with me,

Until my dying day.

[Repeat Chorus]

[Break:]

[Tiny]

Now my deep emotions

Have completely come over me.

I’m into you, I’m loving you too deep,

Oh, yes I am.

[LaTocha]

Should have seen it coming,

Felt my heart beating much too weak.

I can’t control, I can’t let go,

Of you baby, you baby, you.

[Repeat Chorus to fade]

[Outro:]

[Tiny]

Did it feel good to you, baby,

Like it felt good to me.

Do you want it again baby, baby,

‘Cause I want it right now, yes I do.

[LaTocha]

Sometimes I cry, baby,

Sometimes I weep at night, baby.

Take me, take me, tell me you love me, baby,

Say you really, really love me, baby.

Sometimes I can’t sleep at night,

‘Cause I want you right here by my side.

Baby, baby, baby,

Say you want to make love to me, baby,

Like I do to you.

Xscape All This Love

[Verse One (LaTocha):]

I had some problems,

And no-one could seem to solve them.

But you found the answer,

You told me to take this chance,

And learn the ways of love, my baby,

And all that it has to offer.

In time you will see that love won’t let you down.

[Verse Two (Tiny):]

You say that you love me,

Said hurt only came to pass me.

It sounded so amazing,

That I gave it half a chance,

And learnt the ways of love,

And there’s so much love inside me.

And all that I have I give my all to you,

All my loving.

[Chorus:]

All this love is waiting for you

[Repeat]

[Verse Three (LaTocha):]

I had some problems,

And no-one could seem to solve them.

But you you you found the answer,

So I gave it half a chance,

And learnt the ways of love, my baby,

And all that it has to offer.

And all that I have I give my love to you,

All my loving.

[Repeat Chorus]

[Musical interlude]

[Repeat Chorus twice]

[Break:]

Say you really love me baby,

Say you really love me darlin’,

Cause I really love you baby,

Cause I really love darlin’.

[Repeat to fade]

Xscape Pumpin’

[Chorus:]

You gotta keep it pumpin’. [x4]

[Verse One (Tamika):]

I went out looking for a good place,

But everywhere I went was dull.

I went here, and I went there,

But I never found the stuff.

But then I met this boy that said

He had the perfect place,

That I would just love, yeah.

He took me in,

Ooh, let me tell you girlfriend,

The place was jumping,

And it was sho ’nuff pumpin’.

[Repeat Chorus]

[Verse Two (Kandi):]

I found my spot,

Nothing about the place seemed dull.

And the stuff I was looking for,

I found the stuff.

The sound was hot, like I never heard before,

The bass was booming,

There were people all over the dance floor.

Then I met another guy,

And he asked me would I like to dance,

He showed me steps I never seen before.

I walked in,

Ooh, let me tell you girlfriend,

The place was jumping,

And it was sho ’nuff pumpin’.

[Repeat Chorus]

That’s the way I like it,

I like it when it’s pumpin’.

[repeat x4]

[Outro by JD:]

If you got a groove that you like and you like it a lot,

Pump it up, pump it up.

You know the place with the bass,

In the neighbourhood hot spot,

Pump it up, pump it up.

To the girl in the blue,

Tell me what ‘cha gonna do,

Pump it up, pump it up.

And to the negro in red tell me what I said,

Pump it up, pump it up.

[Repeat Chorus to fade]
