Get on my knees, til there bloody red (Baby please)

See I don't know if you get it yet (Just don't know)

He's like the lighter to my cigarette (Wacth me smoke)

I never knew another human life (Didn't know)

Who got the power to take over mine, so baby, baby

[Crooked I]

Yo, I love my R & B, P's man

She be in the shower singin "Chaka Khan- Sweet Thang"

But I'm on the block, gutter thuggin where the G's hang

Cuz all of my father figures came from a street gang

It's Crooked I, ridin wit me more

[Ashanti]

See I can never feel alone with you (In my life)

I'll give up everything I own for you (Won't think twice)

Almost a shame how I'm mesmerised (Such a shame)

I lose my thought lookin in your eyes (I know, I)

Because your kisses make my lips quiver (And that's real)

And when you touch me my whole body shivers (I can feel)

Now I can see how another life (Another life)

How can I come, when I know I keep guns under my shirt I love the street life,

But that there love is a curse

"Rescue"

You still scared, I'll be scared too, it's cool though just holla back aight.

[Verse 1]

All alone and I'm feeling wanted

Try to wait but my body's calling, you're the one so why don't

you come and rescue me,

I'll be here while you on your way, counting down till I see your face,

hurry up cause I love the way you rescue me.

Now your're here, come on out, the rain soaking wet

body glistening, finally we could do something so rescue me,

Can't believe how it's going down,

I'm so obsessed with this love I found it got my head spinning

round and round just rescue me.

[Chorus]

All night long Take me away to another place,

rescue me save me, save me save me all night long

Take me away to another place rescue me

Save me, save me, save me

[Verse 2]

I come alive when I feel your thouch

and I can drown In this pool of love, you could get what I'm thinking of

Come rescue me, what you think couldn't be replaced

if you were gone I would find a way to get you back,

cause I love the way you rescue me, laying here with you in the dark

I always knew you could shift my heart,

when I'm with you I don't want to stop so rescue me,

only you can fulfill my need take me away from this agony,

I want to live out my fantasy just rescue me.

[Chorus 4x]

"Thank You"

I just wanna say that I'm thanklul to have you in my life,

I wanna say thank you,

I wanna say,

I wanna thank you for being in my life,

I wanna say thank you.

I miss you,

I wish you were here with me saying thank you,

and I love you for being in my life.

I don't know

I don't know,

I don't know what I would do if I didn't have you in my life,

In my life,

I just wanna say thank you,

I love you and I miss you,

I just wanna say thank you,

I love you and I miss you

"Unfoolish (Foolish Remix)"

(feat. Biggie Smalls)

[Chorus: Ashanti (Biggie)]

See my days are cold without you (Here's Another one)

But I'm hurting while I'm with you (And another one)

And though my heart can't take no more,

I can't keep running back to you

See my days are cold without you (Here's Another one)

But I'm hurting while I'm with you (And another one)

And though my heart can't take no more,

I won't keep running back to you

(And another one....what? what?)

[Ashanti:]

I think I found my strenght to finally get up and leave

No more broken heart for me

No more tellin' your lies to me (And another one)

I'm lookin' like I got my head on right so now I see

No more givin' you everythin'

There's no more takin' my love from me (what?)

[Chorus]

[Ashanti:]

Glad to wake up every day without you on my brain

No more waiting late up at night

No more havin' to fuzz and fight

I'm proud to say that I will never make the same mistake

No more thinkin' about what you do

There's no more of me runnin' back to you

[Chorus]

[Biggie:]

Some say the x make the sex spec-tacular,

Let me lick you from yo neck to yo back

Then ya, shiverin', tongue deliverin'

Chills up that spine, that ass is mine

Skip the wine and the candlelight, no Cristal tonight

If its alright wit' you, we fuckin (that's cool)

Deja vu, the blunts sparked, finger fuckin in the park

Pissy off Bacardi Dark

Remember when I used to play between yo legs

You begged for me to stop because you know where it would head

Straight to yo mother's bed

At the Mariott, we be lucky if we find a spot next to yo sister

Damn I really miss the way she used to rub my back when I hit that

Way she used to giggle when yo ass would wiggle

Now I know you used to sweets at the Parker Meridian, trips to the Carribean

But tonight, no ends

[Ashanti (Biggie)]

You must be used to me cryin' (And another one)

While you're out bumpin' and grindin'

But I'm leaving you tonight

See my days are cold without you

But I'm hurting while I'm with you

And though my heart can't take no more,

I can't keep running back to you

You must be used to me cryin' (And another one)

While you're out bumpin' and grindin'

But I'm leaving you tonight (Uuuh...and another one)


"Baby"

I don't remember feeling like this...

Baby...Baby I love you...Baby...Baby I love you.

[Verse 1]

I got this jones forming in my bones (from a man)

who indeed took over my soul, (understand)

I couldn't breathe if he ever said (he would leave),

get on my knees till they bloody red, (baby please)

see I don't know if you get it yet, (just don't know)

He's like the lighter to my cigarette,

(watch me smoke), I never knew another human life

(didn't know) can have the power to take over mine,

So baby baby.

[Chorus]

Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby,(baby I love you) baby,

baby,baby baby,baby, I love it when I hear

ya name, got me sayin' baby, baby, baby,

baby, baby,(baby I love you) baby, baby, baby, baby, baby.

[Verse 2]

See, I could never feel alone with you (in my life),

I gave up everything I own for you (won't

think twice), almost a shame how I'm mesmerized (such a shame),

I loose my thought looking in your eyes (I know why)

because your kisses make my lips quiver and (that's real) and when you

touch me my whole body shivers. (I can feel) now,

I can see how another life(nother life) you

have the power to take over mine cause your my.

[Chorus 2x]

[Verse 3]

Baby, I can't see my worth (I can't see) living here on

God's green earth, you don't know what

you've done to me, (done to me) I never thought

I'd need you desperately,(desperately) it's kind

of sick how I'm stuck on you(stuck on you)

but I don't care cause I'm needing you (I'm needing you)

and how I feel will remain the same (remains the same)

cause your're my baby, (cause your my baby)

listen and when the world starts to stress me out,

(where I run) it's to you boy without

a doubt (you're the one) who keeps me sane and I can't complain

(can't complain) you're like a

drug you relieve my pain (may seem strange)

you're like the blood flowing through my vain, (oooo)

keeps me alive and feeding my brain,

(oooo) now this is how another human life (nother life) could

have the power to take over mine cause your my

[Chorus 2x]

"Leaving (Always On Time Part II)"

[Bridge]

If you were me what would you do always a lie,

and never the truth now as for me I'm moving on

You'll always be my baby.

[Chorus]

Baby I just got to let you go for now,

thought I could take it for a while maybe.

You'll make it back around baby I just got to live my life.

And now can't see me changing for a while hope I could make it back around.

[Verse 1]

Anything that I want I can get it boy.

You know you turn me on and on that's why I switch my

frame of mind of being there when you call always on time.

I'm looking to spread my wings and party,

from everything and for everybody,

need my space my time alone its like our hearts don't match no more,

still everything that you want you could get it boy.

You know I still got love for

you in court I plea the fifth my baby.

[Chorus]

[Verse 2]

When you was cheating you was probably thinking I won't sense a thing

but love a funny way of catching up

To lies and your lies can't look me straight in the eyes I'm not surprised that you

would hurt me baby but why me baby just let me breathe

and I'll fly free babe.

[Bridge]

[Chorus]

[Ja Rule]

Yo Yo

Why in the world would you wanna leave me girl is there

Something I did that you feel is better then whats here at home

and I know a bitch could do bad on her own you're not alone

The way you hurt me baby shit why me baby

I be in pain a little but I know that love is real and as

long as it lets you go you feel the need to come back to me baby

who else would hold you and sex

[Chorus 2x]

[Bridge]


"Foolish"

See my days are cold without you

But I'm hurtin while im with you

And though my heart can't take no more

I keep on running back to you

See my days are cold without you

But I'm hurtin while im with you

And though my heart can't take no more

I keep on running back to you

Baby I don't know why ya treatin me so bad

You said you love me, no one above me

And I was all you had

And though my heart is eating for ya

I can't stop crying

I don't know how

I allow you to treat me this way and still i stay

See my days are cold without you

But I'm hurtin while im with you

And though my heart can't take no more

I keep on running back to you

See my days are cold without you

But I'm hurtin while im with you

And though my heart can't take no more

I keep on running back to you

Baby I don't know why ya wanna do me wrong

See when I'm home, I'm all alone

And you are always gone

And boy, you kno I really love you

I can't deny

I can't see how you could bring me to so many tears

after all these years

See my days are cold without you

But I'm hurtin while im with you

And though my heart can't take no more

I keep on running back to you

See my days are cold without you

But I'm hurtin while im with you

And though my heart can't take no more

I keep on running back to you

Oohhhhh

I trusted you, I trusted you

So sad, so sad

what love will make you do

all the things that we accept

be the things that we regret

too all of my ladies (ladies) feel me

c'mon sing wit me

See, when I get the strength to leave

You always tell me that you need me

And I'm weak cause I believe you

And I'm mad because I love you

So I stop and think that maybe

You can learn to appreciate me

Then it all remains the same that

You ain't never gonna change

(never gonna change, never gonna change)

See my days are cold without you

But I'm hurtin while im with you

And though my heart can't take no more

I keep on running back to you

See my days are cold without you

But I'm hurtin while im with you

And though my heart can't take no more

I keep on running back to you

Baby why you hurt me leave me and desert me

Boy I gave you all my heart

And all you do is tear it up

Looking out my window

Knowing that I should go

Even when I pack my bags

This something always hold me back
