Never Want To Live Without You Lyrics – Eric Benet

I know to have a heart that love couldn't find
I used to come and go no matter what I left behind
But now somehow I'm grown to see the world through brand new eyes
A better world that you showed to me
When you were gone
Felt like the stars were pointless to shine
And my days dragged on
Without a cause or reason to find babe
I'm on my own
I'm just a lonely waste of time
That should be spent with you faithfully

[Chorus]
So I never wanna live without you
Never gonna live without you
I never wanna live without you
Never wanna live
Cause you're the biggest part of my life
All of my world is built around you

Never make it through without you
All the love you bring to me

I was blind
Such a fool but now I see
Just hold my hand
Wherever we are it's all me
And now the second chance to start a life and family
I thank the Lord and you for this gift to me

[Chorus]

Thank you for the love
When you knew I was wrong
Thank you for the chance
To run back to your arms
Where I belong
I don't need to see
What is there on the other side
Cause you are my love
My life
Until the day I die

[Chorus]

Feel Good Lyrics – Eric Benet (feat. Faith Evans)

Just make me feel so good
Like this yo, like this, oh yeah, feels good
It feels good, oh
That girl I'd like to know
Exactly what you're feeling
See I don't like lose control
Of this is crazy world I'm feeling
... feels when you're not here

I try to... I don't see a reason why
You just make me feel good
I feel good
I command the words that you don't even trust

... my single line, you see
It's my... decision
But I feel you, what you wanna talk
I said kissing what I'm missing

Let's sing it... how
... decision, I feel good, I can't get you off my mind

I feel good,.. girl I feel good [2x]
... cause you don't even try hard
I feel good,
I can't get you off my mind
... make you feel so good
I can make you, make you feel so good
I can make you, make you feel so good, baby, baby
I can make you feel so good, so good, ooo,
I can make you feel so good, make it,
I can make you feel so good, baby.
Cause you just make me feel good.

Sometimes I Cry Lyrics – Eric Benet

[Verse 1]
Two years since you walked away from me
Since all of our scattered dreams
Were just thrown away
I'm finally gettin back to what I used to be
Share my pain with my family
Think I'm on my way

I can sleep at night,
I don't reach for you when I wake up
But it's taken some time
I can live my life
Without praying that we could make up
I'm movin on, I'm feeling strong inside

[Chorus 1]
But sometimes I cry, babe
When I'm all alone
With this heart of mine
Sometimes I cry, babe
Although you've been gone
For a long, long time

[Verse 2]
Heard you're moving in with someone new
I hope all your dreams come true
And you'll both be happy, yeah

Been long enough for me to take a look around
I've met a girl, we've been hangin out
She's been good for me

But when we're makin love
She don't take me there like you used to
And it hurts when I lie (when I lie baby)
Help me understand how to push you out,
Forget you and let you go,
Cuz Lord knows I've tried, yeah

[Chorus 2]
But sometimes I cry, babe
Been at all that hurtin
For a long, long time (yes, I have babe)
Sometimes I cry, babe
Ain't nothin workin
For this pain of mine

[Bridge]
I'll just have to fake it
Until I can make it
There's a smile on my face, yeah
But I'm broken inside

Always A Reason Lyrics – Eric Benet

What's the use of trying?
It never seems to work
The love just doesn't love you
Is the lesson you've learned.
You've mended broken pieces,
At least dozen times,
To take another chance now,
You see no reason why.

[Chorus:]
But there's always a reason for falling in love,
And it's always the darkest, before your light comes
Like the winter believes in the promise of a sun,
I guess there's always a reason for falling in love.

I'm praying your existence, and something that will pass,
Like when you said our first kiss, will surely be our last.
Girl, I understand you,
More than you believe,
Like you my heart was broken,
But you helped me to see...

[Chorus:]
That is always a reason for falling in love,
And it's always the darkest, before your light comes
Like the winter believes in the promise of a sun,
I guess there's always a reason for falling in love.

Is a lifetime of tears we can both leave behind?
Cause in so many ways we've been broken inside.
All the questions you ask, we'll find answers together in time.
All we need is to believe that...

[Chorus:]
There's always a reason for falling in love,
And it's always the darkest, before your light comes
Like the winter believes in the promise of a sun,
I guess there's always a reason for falling in love.
Always a reason for falling in love,
And it's always the darkest, before the light comes.
Before the light!

Take It Lyrics – Eric Benet (feat. Chrisette Michele)

Girl it's time I confess that my mind's been a mess, since I met you lady
You got a vibe on your... sex appeal overlord, it's kinda special baby
I wanna give you all I got, I be lying to say I not, I've been intimidated
You're doing more than the most, living high coast to coast
I'm still trying to make it, yeah

I don't really need a man scared to take control, I'm scared baby
He gotta just tell me how it's gonna be, how it's gonna be
If you can't step up boy, you better just step out
Cause if you want what's real, you gotta come for real
I don't know what I need to do but I sure wanna get with you
Come and take it if you want it, I really really wanna take it
Strong and tender, finest hair, gotta have you for myself
Come and take it if you want it

Oh you'll be so surprised that many men just pass me by
They think I'm spoken for
Or at times my success makes them feel less about themselves
So they want out my door
As you can tell I'm a queen, nobody needs to rescue me
So don't get me wrong, no
But if you're down for a try, if you can stimulate my mind, give the girl a call

I don't really need a man scared to take control, I'm scared baby
He gotta just tell me how it's gonna be, how it's gonna be
If you can't step up boy, you better just step out
Cause if you want what's real, you gotta come for real
I don't know if you feel it, but I'm surely thigging you
Come and take it If you want it, all I need to hear baby
And I don't know if I'm out of line, but do I need to make your mind
Come and take it if you want it,
I don't know what I need to do, but I'm trying to get with you
Come and take it if you want it, I'm tryin I'm tryin to come and get
Strong and tender, finest hair, gotta have you for myself
Come and take it if you want it, yeah babe

I've been watching every move you make and gain you fave
Gain my place, I've been hanging on all the words you say to get you babe
You wanna get it baby? I don't wanna have to wait no more to make that call
I'm coming over girl, let me take it girl, all night long
It's that how you feel, I've been watching every move you make and gain you place
I got this real
I'm hanging onto every word you say to get you babe
I don't wanna have to wait no more to make that call
That's how you feel
I'm coming over girl, let me take it girl, all night long
I ain't looking for a man scared to take control, I'm scared baby
He gotta just tell me how it's gonna be, how it's gonna be
I'm a tell you girl
If you can't step up boy, you better just step out
I know what you need baby
Cause if you want what's real, you gotta come for real
I don't know if you feel it, but I'm surely thigging you
Come and take it If you want it, all I need to hear baby
And I don't know if I'm out of line, but do I need to make your mind
Come and take it if you want it,
I don't know what I need to do, but I'm trying to get with you
Come and take it if you want it, come on and take it
Strong and tender, finest hair, gotta have you for myself
Come and take it if you want it, yeah babe

Are you thinking what I mean?
I really do
Get on the point man
I see you think that you can just come and take it
You're the queen, I know what you need.
Do you mean that?
You know what I mean, I got what you need, yes I do
You can try to be my babe, come on take it, take it babe
You just know I'm a quest
Do you know I'm a queen?
I said do you know I'm a queen?

Stir It Up Lyrics – Eric Benet

To feel good
We were switching,
We were switching up some time, babe.
Hey, oh!
Hey, I got a stupid hot girl,
Hey oh, oh!

It's feeling like it's been too long since we had a good time,
We've been talking about what's wrong,
Stir up what's been going right,
Every day the same all same,
Girl we need to stir it up!
Yeah!
I think it's time we had a change,
A little switch in luck.
And maybe we could find a spot or two for me and you!
Just you and me!
There ain't no problems on the dancing floor,
So let's hit the door!
That's all we need!
Girl you know I love to see you smile,
It drives me wild!
I know what you like, boy!
Life is only for the living,
So let's live it tonight!

[Chorus:]
Start stirring it up,
And you can take another look at me,
Start mixing it up,
A little change in the scenery!
Mix it up, girl!
Start stirring it up,
Cause we've been living in the days too long!
Start stir it up as the night comes!

I think I know what's on down town,
We've never been before.
And when it starts to winding down,
Hit it after set it for!
And maybe we could take a carriage ride
Underneath the city lights,
And girl we've been doing some in Rome,
Let's find a way and do it all right!
I propose a toast or two, for me and you!
It should glide us both.
For always making a little time for fun,
In the years that come.
Keep it... yeah!
Girl, we've got to switch it up some time,
To make it right,
If I'm gonna be the only one for the rest of your life.
Yeah!

[Chorus:]
Start stirring it up,
And you can take another look at me,
Stir it up, baby!
Start mixing it up,
A little change in the scenery!
Mix it up, girl!
Start stirring it up,
Cause we've been living in the days too long!
Start stirring it up as the night goes on!
Start stirring it up,
So we could see what's going down!
See what's going down!
Start living it up,
A little bit and take a look around!
Start shaking it up
And maybe we could find a spot or two!
Shake it, baby!
Start stirring it for the night is true!

When you get close to me,
I feel like picking a night of love!
When you get close to me,
Stir it up, baby!

[Chorus:]
Start stirring it up,
And you can take another look at me,
At me!
Start mixing it up,
A little change in the scenery!
Scenery!
Start stirring it up,
Cause we've been living in the days too long!
Too long!
Start stirring it up as the night goes on!
So we could see what's going down!
See what's going down!
Start living it up,
A little bit and take a look around!
Start shaking it up
And maybe we could find a spot or two!
Shake it, baby!
Start stirring it up fort the night is true!

When you get close to me,
I feel like picking a night of love!
When you get close to me,
Stir it up, baby!

Summer Love Lyrics – Eric Benet (feat. India Benet)

Yeah, take me back
I wanna go back there
Mmmmmm yeah

[Verse 1]
Summer lovin, I remember falling once upon my history
Sun was shinin, you were in a hurry but nowhere that ya had to be
Some conversation for a while until we felt the magic grow (ooohh)
Thats when my summer came alive but seasons come and seasons go (ooohh)
Tender kisses underneath the moonlight softly on your brown skin
Makin wishes, plans to spend our whole life knowing that this time would end
And like the temperature outside our feelings and emotions rose
I dreamed id take you as my bride but soon the autumn winds would blow (ooowoo)

[Chorus]
My summer love (oooohooohoooo)
I'm searchin for you (ooohooohoo)
Our time was only for a season
My heart remains true (mmm yeah)

[Verse 2]
I remember walkin on the boardwalk beaming from just holdin hands
We were runnin in between the raindrops, innocence that couldn't last
I close my eyes when I'm alone and travel back to way back then (yes I do)
And like no other lover known, you make me feel alive again

[Chorus]
My summer love (ooohooohooo)
I'm searchin for you (ooohoohoo)
Our time was only for a season
My heart remains true
My summer love (ooohooohoo)
I'm lost without you (ooohoohoo)
So many years have past between us
I'm still your love fool

[Bridge 1]
Take me away from this life
To places where you end up mine
Can we go back to the best time of our lives

[Chorus]
My summer love (ooohoohoooo)
Girl, I still love you (yes I do)
Our time was only for a season
My heart remains true (I'll be true just for you)
My summer love (ooohooohooo)
I'm lost without you (oh I'm lost baby)
So many years have past between us
I'm still your love fool (woooo yea)

[Outro - India Benet]
Summer lovin, wish we could've made it last
Summer lovin, would you please come back to me again [2x]

Lost In Time Lyrics – Eric Benet

There's a knock outside my door
It's you again!
There's a kiss that let's me know,
This love won't end.
There's a life, there's a touch and a smile
And we're making love,
And all is perfect in my lonely world again.
As we lay we make a plan for life together,
Holding on with all the might full worst or better,
I can't believe,
I can't conceive all the time that you're not with me,
But in a flash I'm in this lonely room again.

[Chorus:]
I don't wanna stay here lost in time,
I don't understand this heart of mine,
I keep letting go to fantasy,
Never letting go of you and me.
I don't wanna stay here lost without you!

There's a house upon the hill I hear the laughter,
And our children seem to grow each year much faster,
We're alone now in this emptiness and love still grows,
But only visions of a life that should have been.

[Chorus:]
I don't wanna stay here lost in time,
I don't understand this heart of mine,
I keep letting go to fantasy,
Never letting go of you and me.
I don't wanna stay here lost without you!

You are, the only one I'm holding down for always,
My heart, in the time of light, shinning bright in your...
So far,
I can't let go, I won't let go,
And that's why,
I will face reality till it brings you back to me.

[Chorus: x3]
I don't wanna stay here lost in time,
I don't understand this heart of mine,
I keep letting go to fantasy,
Never letting go of you and me.
I don't wanna stay here lost without you!

"Love & Life" (2008)

Love, Patience & Time Lyrics – Eric Benet

I believe in the power inside of my heart
God is the source from whom we're never apart
No challenge too great and no cause is too small
This infinite love is inside of us all

My buddy Greg, he lost his leg serving time in the desert
He'd sit and drink and think of things he couldn't do no more
Took a while for Greg to smile, but I heard he's doing better
He just won a marathon, second year in a row

Oh, there's a storm that you're gon' have to ride in your life
Hope is the beacon that saves when you're lost in your life
Just hold on and you'll go with the tide

With love, patience and time
And it won't take long and it's gonna be alright
Love, patience and time
That power is strong in your heart and mind

I knew a girl, a pretty girl, but her daddy never loved her
She wondered why every guy left her out in the cold
What daddy did she must forgive before her heart grows colder
And all the love she's dreaming of, maybe then she will know

Yeah, we've got stories and people to blame for our lives
No, don't get lost in that circle
Don't you know that's a lie?
The only way is to leave the past behind

With love, patience and time
And it won't take long and it's gonna be alright
Love, patience and time
That power is strong in your heart and mind

Love, patience and time
And it won't be long till it's gonna be alright
Love, patience and time
That power is strong in your heart and mind

There's so much more inside you and me
That the world needs to still believe
Nothing's too great for this God and me
Keep in mind love and life
Everything is gonna be alright

Grab a gun everyone, said the leader of many
We've got to kill to change the will of the other side
Some people swear that blood and fear
Is gonna bring the world together
I believe that all we need is love, patience and time

Love, patience and time
And it won't take long and it's gonna be alright
Love, patience and time
That power is strong in your heart and mind

Love, patience and time
And it won't be long till it's gonna be alright
Love, patience and time
That power is strong in your heart and mind

Love, patience and time
Love, patience and time

Hunger Lyrics – Eric Benet

You're still wanting me, you're still hungering
Are you still?
You're still wanting me, you're still hungering

Now the first kiss was the one that let me see
Just how deep you're into me
Surprised by your intensity
I couldn't believe

Now the next kiss happened seven days ago
That's when I started letting go
Dropped my guard and let you know
I was ready for more, oh I

Oh, that's when I took you home
And I wasn't quite ready for how you came
Words can't explain pleasures
We've explored, oh I

Oh, we've been making love six nights strong
And I can't believe just how long you can go
I'm ready for more of the hunger in your soul, oh I

Girl, you're blazing like you never get enough of me
It's amazing that I'm loving that
You're still wanting me, you're still hungering
We keep rising like we're never gonna reach the top
I'm not trying to make you stop because
You're still wanting me, you're still hungering

Now the first time was amazing like I said
Like nothing I've seen, done, or read
Colors and music played in my head
I wasn't prepared

Now the next time happened when I finally caught my breath
I saw the sweat drip off your chest
Girl, you inspire my very best
And I gave nothing less and it seems

With every conversation in between
I get a little more attracted
When you open up your mind, girl
I find your perception of the world coincides with mine

And I try to let the fever in me subside
But every time I see that little look in your eye
I come back to life
And I rise, I rise, I rise, oh

From the bedroom to the kitchen, up against the wall
Still I hear your body calling because
You're still wanting me and you're still hungering
From a hundred miles an hour back to slow motion
I'm the waves upon your ocean because
You're still wanting me and you're still hungering

Did you know that you smile when you're asleep?
Is it there all the time or only when you're with me?
When the morning sun shines on your face
Let me be the first breath you take, I wanna be

Girl, you're blazing like you never get enough of me
It's amazing that I'm loving that
You're still wanting me, you're still hungering
We keep rising like we're never gonna reach the top
I'm not trying to make you stop because
You're still wanting me, you're still hungering

From the bedroom to the kitchen, up against the wall
Still I hear your body calling because
You're still wanting me and you're still hungering
From a hundred miles an hour back to slow motion
I'm the waves upon your ocean because
You're still wanting me and you're still hungering

Girl, you're blazing like you never get enough of me
It's amazing that I'm loving that
You're still wanting me, you're still hungering
We keep rising like we're never gonna reach the top
I'm not trying to make you stop because
You're still wanting me, you're still hungering

From the bedroom to the kitchen, up against the wall
Still I hear your body calling because
You're still wanting me and you're still hungering
From a hundred miles an hour back to slow motion
I'm the waves upon your ocean

You're The Only One Lyrics – Eric Benet

Oooh yeah

I'm going back to the day we partied
and all the ways you were broken hearted
I take a trip everyday in my mind.

I see your face I recall it few words
It's playing back like a broken record
I remember every tear in your eyes
If I knew what I know
I'd walk back in time
I would right every wrong ooh
I would change every line
Then you'd be here right now
Just like yesterday
But you'd feel no more doubt
when you hear me say

[Chorus]
You're the only one I want
You're the only one yeah
You're the ony one I need in my life (in my life baby)
You're the only one I love (I love love love you)
You're the only one I need in my life oooh yeah

I see the world through a haze of memories
and other girls don't mean a damn thing to me
No No
It's kind of sad how they just don't compare (don't compare uuuum)
Time will tell let's wait and see
If the love we have was meant to be
Cause I know we got a future out there
Cause you're still my girl
I don't care what they say
Let's go back to our world
Baby don't you throw this love away
Cause I still believe
in the magic of us
It's just a matter of time and
It's a matter of trust

[Chorus]
You're the only I want
You're the only one I need in my life yeah yeah
You're the only one I love,
(You're the only one the only one)
You're the only one I need in my life
I don't need no body else

Now girl it took some time
To get real with myself
Now love ain't easy sometimes
But when you find let's
Stay to-get-her

[Chorus]
You're the only one I want
(You're the one, you're the one)
You're the only one I need in my life yeah yeah
You're the only one I love
what's it gonna be baby ...what's it gonna be baby
You're the only one I need in my life ooooo
You're the only one I want
you're the only, only only one
You're the only one I need in my life
Nobody but you baby ,Nobody but you baby
You're the only one I love oooh oooh
You're the only one I need in my life
I need you love you want you baby
You're the only want I want oooo
You're the only one I need in my life
Don't you know don't you know I love you girl
You're the only one I love...yeah I need you baby
I need you

Don't Let Go Lyrics – Eric Benet

Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up now
Feels good, feels good, yeah

Now the heat of love feels like it's starting to cool
I hear the bells, but they don't ring the way they used to
It looks like breaking up is our next obvious move
But let's not move too soon, oh no

See the problem going 'round too often these days
People throwing in the towel once they pass the honeymoon phase
A stronger love awaits if we endure this pain
Or else we've been these years, cried these tears in vain, I'm saying

Don't let go, that's all I'm saying
Don't let go, ooh girl, let's stop playing
No, don't let go, think of all the love we've been making
Don't let go, don't let it go

I've worked your patience, girl, and you've been working my nerves
We scream at each other, but we're not hearing one word
We've made mistakes that neither one of us deserves
Leaving much desired where I was concerned

I saw an old man and his wife early today
They were holding hands, his eyes locked in her gaze
Think of all the times they came so close to parting ways
In my mind I could hear him say me , stay babe

Don't let go, I could hear him say
Don't let go, don't throw the love away
No, don't let go, aren't we worth it, baby?
Don't let go, don't let it go

Don't let go, that's all I'm saying
Don't let go, ooh girl, let's stop playing
No, don't let go, think of all the love we've been making
Don't let go, don't let it go

With some other girl, I could move on
Trading old problems just for new
To some other guy you could belong
Going through changes we've been through

When another brother is trying to make a play
Oh no, don't you let go
When another woman jump in my face
Oh, I better not let go

When the honeymoon starts fading away
Oh no, I won't let go
If we're gonna make it I wanna hear you say
Oh no, I swear I won't let go

Don't let go, that's all I'm saying
Don't let go, ooh girl, let's stop playing
No, don't let go, think of all the love we've been making
Don't let go, don't let it go

Don't let go, I wanna hear you say
Don't let go, don't throw this love away
No, don't let go, you know we're worth it, baby?
Don't let go, don't let it go

I could hear him say
Don't throw the love away
Aren't we worth it, baby?

Everlove Lyrics – Eric Benet (feat. Terry Dexter) Lyrics – Eric Benet

I never thought it was possible
In my reality
I thought my chances for love were gone
That time ran out for me
My heart has been through some
Changes
And heaven knows
What I thought was my everlove
Was so conditional
But my love everyday with you I'm
So surprised
Morning comes I fall in love again
Each night I'm thanking GOD you're
In my life
I don't know how I know but this feeling
Won't be ending

[CHORUS]
Everlove oh my everlove
Ever lasting through all changes in
Our lives
Everlove you're my everlove
Ever growing everyday and every night

I found my everlove

I'll never ask for perfection
That's how a love can slip away
I only ask for the truth in your heart the
Rest we'll work out day by day

You've seen the best and worst of me
And you're still standing here
Oh, there is nothing that can stop us now
Cause' we've got nothing left to fear

The future will show

The power in a moment just like this
Whatever love can dream we both
Will know
Whatever we imagine will exist
With every kiss I swear my life will be
Deserving of you

Everlove, oh everlove
Everlasting through all changes in
Our lives
Everlove, you're my everlove
Ever giving, ever learning with every cry
I found, my ever love
The winds of changes will blow
(come what may)
Your friends may come may go
(I'll never go away)
These struggles of life they my put us
Through the fire
But as long as I'm alive I'll be right there
By your side

[REPEAT CHORUS]

I never know that love could feel this way
Let's share a life of love together baby
Everlasting through all changes in our lives
Come what may I'm gonna be here
With you
Love you forever till my life is through
Ever giving ever learning with every cry

I found my everlove

Chocolate Legs Lyrics – Eric Benet

This world has up and gone crazy
I'm out here working trying to make it
Girl, it's so rough in this city
There ain't no resting for the weary
So baby feel me, I need something to feel
So my spirit can heal, babe

I need you to wrap them chocolate legs 'round me
So when I come home tonight, you'll make everything alright
When you gon' wrap them chocolate legs 'round me
The memory of my day will quickly just fade away
When you come wrap them chocolate legs 'round me
Please baby, wrap them chocolate legs 'round me

Your cocoa skin against mine, babe
Is all I need to help revive me
Just touch me and I feel pure, pure love
You're the only thing I'm ever sure of, your love I'm sure of
I need some reminding that God is still, He's still behind me
So baby, come take my soul and set me free

When you come wrap them chocolate legs 'round me
So when I come home tonight, you'll make everything alright
When you come wrap them chocolate legs 'round me
I need you to understand and make me glad I'm a man
Deep inside you that's where I need to be
Oh baby, just wrap them chocolate legs 'round me

Hold on, hold on
I only need you to wrap 'round me
Hold on, hold on
Don't let go, baby, don't let go
Don't you, don't you let go

I need some reminding that God is still, He's still behind me
So baby, just take my soul and set me free
I want you to know how much you mean to me
When you come wrap them chocolate legs 'round me
Oh, oh, tonight, I want you to make things right
Baby, come wrap them chocolate legs 'round me

I need you to understand and make me glad I'm a man

Spanish Fly Lyrics – Eric Benet

I know just what you need
I feel what you've been going through
I've got the remedy
Use me like Spanish Fly

Oh oh, don't it feel good? Don't it feel good?
Mamacita, mamacita
Let me please you, I wanna please you

He let your love go
You're the victim of a crime
Your heart broken treacherously
Your river just froze and now this happens
Every time you're faced with some intimacy

No one's been able to stable this painful phase
It's like you just can't reach that high
Would you mind it if I try?
Just lay back and close your eyes
Guaranteed you'll feel the fire again

I know just what you need
I feel what you've been going through
I've got the remedy
Use me like Spanish Fly

Don't be afraid, no, I promise you if you let it flow
Your face will be stuck with a smile
Let's take off our clothes, then let's take it nice and slow
Let's just stare at each other a while

No one can figure your trigger, that's what you say
How about you give me a try?
Like an aphrodisiac, I can bring the fire back
'Cause I know exactly what to prescribe

I know just what you need
I feel what you've been going through
I've got the remedy
Use me like Spanish Fly

I know just what you need
I feel what you've been going through
I've got the remedy
Use me like Spanish Fly

It's been so long, there's a fire trapped inside you
All I want is to be there when it burns you
Baby, let me squeeze you, wanna hold you, wanna please you
Let me feel you, 'cause I need to

Lay you on the table, let me lick you
From your navel to your flower, for hours
Baby, don't you see that
There's nothing wrong with getting freaky
When you need to, to release you

Baby, I'm on fire, we gonna take it a little higher
Till it's time to come inside you

I know just what you need
I feel what you've been going through
I've got the remedy
Use me like Spanish Fly

I know just what you need
I feel what you've been going through
I've got the remedy
Use me like Spanish Fly

Oh, everybody needs, everybody needs
To feel somebody sometime
Use me baby, won't you use me, baby?

Sing To Me Lyrics – Eric Benet

Can I tell you shall I count the way
Can I find the words that could explain
I have my heart of my life soul you changed forever

You ease my pain with such gentle hand
When im with you im a better man

Looking for a peace love to make Get better
But we can make it through and rise above

And I know that will be strong enough to
Go on and go on and go on

Cause you sing to me without musical words
Sweetest melody that I ve ever heard
Sweet enough to make me cry
Cause it keeps our love alive
Sing to me sing baby

And leaving through the fire

And your the reason why I gotta
I'm singing stronger everyday

Cause When I look in to your eyes
I hear the song that never dies
Cause you sing to me (everytime I look in to your eyes its like I can hear) you sing to me
Sing to me (I love you so much babe)

One More Tomorrow Lyrics – Eric Benet

Last night I dreamed my life was over and done
The angels threw me high above
They called it Heaven but I know it was a lie
For when I looked, you weren't inside

If I had only one more tomorrow
I'd spend that day with you
I'd feel no pain or sorrow there with you

Last night my dream revealed the day could soon come
Without your kiss, your touch, your love
The first tears in Heaven ever cried would be mine
Until you were there right by my side
Baby, don't you know

If I had only one more tomorrow
I'd spend that day with you
I'd feel no pain or sorrow there with you

If I had only one more tomorrow
Imagine if you could, in your arms
I'd spend my final hours, yes I would

Sometimes life makes us feel so secure
Like our days will last forever
A time will come when I am here no more
Think of me and just remember
Always remember

If I had only one more tomorrow
I'd spend that day with you
I'd feel no pain or sorrow there with you

If I had only one more tomorrow
Imagine if you could, in your arms
I'd spend my final hours, yes I would

As long as you were there, there with you
No girl, I wouldn't be afraid, there with you
Hold my hand, there with you
I love you that much, babe
I love you that much, babe
Last night I dreamed of you

"Hurricane" (2005)

Be Myself Again Lyrics – Eric Benet

I've been away too long awhile
I lost my rhythm, I forgot my style
Too complicated for this simple man
But now I understand
Like a circle peg in a square hole
I tried to push it but it wouldn't go
It didn't kill me so my strength increased
And now i finally see

I found a love that was gone deep inside of me
I found a man who was lost and i set him free
I thought that the pain was never gonna end
But now i can be myself again

I had the best the world could offer for sho'
But peace of mind is much more precious than gold
I was in place where truth was hard to find
But it's all revealed in time
Stick out my chest and hold my head up high
Forgot how it felt to feel so good inside
A fool would gain the world just to lose himself
Now i'm gonna be true to no one else

I gotta light in my eyes for the world to see
Thank God the music's back inside of me
It was a long hard road to be a better man
But now i can be myself again
I feel the roll of thunder in my bones
I hold my head up high everywhere that i go
And the gift of life i truly understand
'Cause i can be myself again

No there ain't no wound that love can't heal for sho'
And if you lose yourself the Lord will guide you home
This i know
Well i found a joy and serenity
Won't let nobody tell me something's wrong with me
Gotta big love inside and I'm 'mo set it free
And be myself again

I found a love that was gone deep inside of me
I found a man who was lost and i set him free
I thought that the pain was never gonna end
But now i can be myself again
I feel the roll of thunder in my bones
I hold my head up high everywhere that i go
And the gift of life i truly understand
And i can be myself again
I said i can be myself again
I know i can be myself again
I can be myself again

Pretty Baby Lyrics – Eric Benet

Baby what you searching for
I'm pretty sure that you just don't know 'cause
You're looking with your body, not your head
You're brilliant and beautiful
But they don't see when they take you home 'cause
You're just another notch that's in their bed
Oh, oh pretty baby
Oh, oh pretty baby
(Why you wanna go and do that baby)

I can feel your emptiness, I can see it behind those eyes
Just waiting for the one who understands
(Someone who understands)
Though I'm nothing like the rest
I'm invisible because you're blind
Jaded and blinded to a chance
(To take a chance with me)
Oh, oh pretty baby
Oh, oh pretty baby
(oh, you're so beautiful, why you want to go and do that baby)

Don't lie to yourself
Don't let them inside while your heart keeps crying
Slow love for yourself
Discover your light where you you'll find me
(In the light)
Oh, oh pretty baby

Hurricane Lyrics – Eric Benet

Standing here in disarray
A calm serenity
The winds of change can devastate
And it took this much for me
With nowhere to run and no reason left to hide
Gonna hold on
All the walls around are broken down
Now I can hear the rising sun

Surrounded by everything I want
But nothing that I need
I was blinded by the absurdity
Losing all identity
Sometimes what you fear the most is what you need
To find that road
Right around that curve a lesson learned
Now that I have the eyes to see

A hurricane, a hurricane
Is sometimes the only way to wash away the pain
A hurricane, a hurricane
Is sometimes the only thing that brings you back again

With poison toys I'd isolate
But the wind was strong and true
But now I see where the treause is
'Cause they only blocked my view
I'm spiraling down but so oblivious
Got to find my way home
There's a heart that bleeds trapped in me
But how do I break this shell of stone

A hurricane, a hurricane
Is sometimes the only way to wash away the pain
A hurricane, a hurricane
Is sometimes the only thing that brings you back again

Sometimes I cried, the tears wouldn't fall
And sometimes I tried to break those walls
And feel your love
But I came alive
When I finally found my way

A hurricane, a hurricane
Is sometimes the only way to wash away the pain
A hurricane, a hurricane
Is sometimes the only thing that brings you back again

Where Does The Love Go Lyrics – Eric Benet

We could write the story of how we fell apart
But your truth and mine ain't the same
So I'll write the words into my heart
Fot the chapter that bears your name
How could people go from a feeling that words can't describe
To a place of not even caring if I'm even alive

The love that we shared, did it fade into nothing
Where does the love go
After all the dreams that we had did it vanish completely
Where does the love go
Where does the love go

They say that love is a timeless energy, it never dies it just changes form
But it when it changed from the shape of you and me it took the shape of a raging storm
I'm not asking for second chances
I just want you to see
Until you take a look at yourself girl
You could never be free

The love that we shared, did it fade into nothing
Where does the love go
After all the dreams that we had did it vanish completely
Where does the love go?
The love that we shared, did it fade into nothing
Where does the love go
After all the dreams that we had did it vanish completely
Where does love go?

When it dissipates does it turn to hate
If you see me on the street, would you talk to me
For the sake of love, ain't worth it babe?
How could people go from a feeling that words can't describe
To a place of not even caring if I'm even alive

The love that we shared, did it fade into nothing
Where does the love go
After all the dreams that we had did it vanish completely
Where does the love go
The love that we shared, does it fade into nothing
Where does the love go
After all the dreams that we had does it vanish completely
Where does love go
The love that we shared
Where does the love go
Where does the love go

My Prayer Lyrics – Eric Benet

I don't want to live this way no more
I don't want to fight this endless lonely war
I don't want to stand alone, without the only love I've known
And never find that ray of light we had before
I never meant to break your precious heart
And what I did can't be undone and it's tearing me apart
Far too late for promises, but if you gave us one more chance
You would see a better man worth fighting for

Love sweet love I feel your power
Hear my prayer, we're in your hands now
Take these hearts so lost and broken
Bring us home again
If this prayer for love is never heard
Oh, and if you have to walk away for these are only words
Baby I will understand but I will always be that man
Waiting here for you with love and open arms

Love sweet love I feel your power
Hear my prayer, we're in your hands now
Take these hearts so lost and broken
Bring us home again
Remember all the times we had, the dreans that we once shared
I swear I'll bring them back to you again
Again

Love sweet love I feel your power
Hear my prayer, we're in your hands now
Take these hearts so lost and broken
Bring us home again

Man Enough To Cry Lyrics – Eric Benet

I always loved, I always cared
But there was a part of me that wasn't always there
But then you loved enough to stay
And so I found the self I lost along the way
So no more words I'm holding back that I should say
And I won't hurt inside and tell you I'm okay
And every breath of love between us will be pure and true
'Cause now I'm man enough to cry
With you

The lights were off, the doors were closed
So how you found this love in me only heaven knows
Thank God and you who brought me here
An open man found just in time for the living years
So no more words I'm holding back that I should say
And I won't hurt inside and tell you I'm okay
And every breath of love between us will be pure and true
'Cause now I'm man enough to cry
With you

Feels like waves of my love breaking through
Now I can lay down and share me with you
I won't hold out I know now this life only lasts a while
So I'll love leaving non to hide from you

So no more words I'm holding back that I should say
And I won't hurt inside and tell you I'm okay
And every breath of love between us will be pure and true
'Cause now I'm man enough to cry
So no more words I'm holding back that I should say
And I won't hurt inside and tell you I'm okay
And every breath of love between us will be pure and true
'Cause now I'm man enough to cry
With you

I Know Lyrics – Eric Benet

Some say that change won't come
We'll never live as one
They say it can't be done
But I know better
They say there'll be more rain
They say there'll be more pain
But sun's gonna shine again
And I know for sho'

If you really, really wanna you could touch the sky
Don't let them tell you you can't fly that high
Anthing you want you just go out and try
'Cause I know, I know, I know

They say the end is near
And they say it's almost here
But I say to have no fear
I know, it's not so
Some say that love's just a myth
It's a wonderful dream but it doesn't exist
But to look at you you're such a precious gift
That I know, I know

If you really, really wanna you could touch the sky
Don't let them tell you you can't fly that high
Anthing you want you just go out and try
'Cause I know, I know, I know

And if you really, really want it, it could be that way
Don't get caught up in what them people say
All your little dreams turn into bigger things
I know, I know
I know, I just know
That I know
Oh

The seeds you sowed determine what you grow
The road you take determines where you're gonna go
And when you feel it deep inside your soul
You'll know, you'll know

If you really, really wanna you could touch the sky
Don't let them tell you you can't fly that high
Anthing you want you just go out and try
'Cause I know, I know, I know
That if you really, really want it, it could be that way
Don't get caught up in what them people say
All your little dreams turn into bigger things
I know, I know

India Lyrics – Eric Benet

I got the biggest part of heaven in my life
And I can feel it every time I see your eyes
You're my world, you're my light
India

If I could you know I'd open every door
But your own journey makes it mean so much more
I believe in all your dreams
India

Down, you'll never let me down
When you follow your own way
Speak the words only you would say
Keep reaching for your star
If won't be far
When love's behind you
You're the miracle of life that love has made
This bond between the two of us will never break
Your flower blooms, I sing for you
India

You hold the universe inside your little hands
So don't you listen if they just don't understand you
When you try, you always fly
India

Yes baby
Keep reaching for your star
If won't be far
I'm right behind you
I got the biggest part of heaven in my life
And I can feel it every time I see your eyes
You're my world, you're my light
India
I believe in all your dreams
India
When you try, you always fly
India, yes you do baby

The Last Time Lyrics – Eric Benet

The first time I fell in love was long ago.
I didn't know how to give my love at all.
The next time I settled for what felt so close.
But without romance, you're never gonna fall.
After everything I've learned;
Now it's finally my turn.
This is the last time I'll fall... in love.
The first time we walked under that starry sky,
there was a moment when everything was clear.
I didn't need to ask or even wonder why, because each question is answered when your near.
and I'm wise enough to know when a miracle unfolds, this is the last time i'll fall in love.
Now don't hold back, just let me know.
Could i be moving much too fast or way too slow.
'Cause all of my life, I've waited for this day.
To find that once in a lifetime, this is it, I'll never be the same.
You'll never know what it's taken me to say these words.
And now that I've said them, they could never be enough.
As far as I can see, there's only you and only me.

This is the last time I'll fall in love.
Last time i'll fall in love.
The last time i'll fall... in love.

In The End Lyrics – Eric Benet

I heard some news from a friend of mine
Struggling with the woes of life
Just broken down as rain kept steady pouring
The question that we philosophize
With the only truth that we surmise
Is rain will fall so the rose will keep on growing

Sometimes it's hard to understand
How fate can deal with such a heavy hand, yea
mmmmm

But in the end, you're going to find that strength that lies within
And in the end, all you need is a comfort of a friend
And in the end, u won't break cuz ur learning how to bend
And the hand of God will guide you always,
In the end

Now i know a woman so abused
By the hands and words her husband used
Til the day had come when she could take no more
With 2 little girls she was left to feed
She taught them strenght and self esteem
Now she's an inspiration to everyone she meets
I know that life has a funny way of bringing out the best by bringing all the pain
hmmm

But in the end, a little love's gonna bring you back again
And in the end, every answer is written on the wind
And in the end, looking back you can finally understand
He was always there besides you, you'll see
Cause I know the fight
When you struggle every moning
Just the face that world one more day

And you holding onto life
While i know the wind is blowing
Just believe your help is on the way

In the end, you're gonna find that strength that lies within
And in the end, you're gonna get there no matter where you' ve been
Cause in the end, well the one through is love will always win
And the hand of God will guide you
Just believe him and let him in

Cause in the end, a little love's gonna bring you back in
And in the end, well, every answer written on the wind
And in the end, just look back and I swear you'll understand
He was always there beside you
yeaa

I heard some news from a friend of mine

Making Love Lyrics – Eric Benet

It feels unbelievable when my body's wrapped around you
Forever could never be enough
But it's not through physical
When my soul is trying to reach you
The heart is the way to making love
Now I've come to understand
Through a life of deeper meaning
And wanting to love you even more
The touch is divine but deeper inside
You swear we should keep love alive
Love has answered my call
What has taken me....

[Chorus]
All of this time
I've...been learning the way to
Make love...right
All my days and my nights
All of my life...I
Wanna spend it with you
Making love

I want to lay you down
On the bed of our emotions
Emrace you with tenderness and truth (yes)
I'll be inside of you
With the strength of my devotion
And cherish each moment shared with you
One rhythm of life....body and mind
Leaving this whole world behind
In the heat of it all
Only deeper we'll fall....

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
Love made every moment
Every word we say
Love found in the pleasure in the pain
For always
Days fall by the second
and the years will fade
But I won't waste the time
Cuz I'm giving you...

All of my life
I....keep on learning new ways to
Make love right
And with all of my might
Day and night
I...wanna spend it with you
Making love (making love)

All of this time
I've.... been learning (how to make)
Love right
Everyday and all of my life...I...
I want to spend
Making love...
[fade, ad lib]

Cracks Of My Broken Heart Lyrics – Eric Benet

Maybe we need just a little more time
Time that can heal what's been on your mind
You can find what we lost before it all slips away
We need time to mend from the mistakes I've made
God only knows what a heart can survive
So many tears from all the pain in our lives
And where else could we go after all we've been through
I still believe my life is right here with you

So just hold on
And it'll wont take long
I hope that you can love me
When the pain is gone
I don't want us to fall through the cracks of a broken heart
Don't want us to fall through the cracks of your broken heart

I know its taking a while but every lesson, i've learned
And if your heart speaks tonight, I'll hear every word
If you want to be free I'll never stand in your way
But with all that I am, I'm asking you to stay

Hold on
And it'll wont take long
I hope that you can love me
When the pain is gone
I don't want us to fall through the cracks of a broken heart
Don't want us to fall through the cracks of your broken heart

There's a light that can burn
It exists in the heart
You can feel it when you know love is true
If you could try to be strong
And keep the light burning long
It took a lifetime but i found it in you

Hold on
And it'll wont take long
I hope that you can love me
When the pain is gone
I don't want us to fall through the cracks of a broken heart
Don't want us to fall through the cracks of your broken heart

I Wanna Be Loved Lyrics – Eric Benet

Love once left me cold and gray
I had almost reached heaven
Just to feel it slip away
But life's too short to waste away
Being scared to take chances
Or so I've heard wise men say

I wanna be loved
Faithful and true
I wanna be loved
Ten million lifetimes with you
I wanna be loved
And after all I've been through
I'll let my heart take it's chances, just to be loved by you

Taste, touch, hear, see, feel me now girl
And you'll know I'm so ready
To exchange lifelong vows, yes I am
'Cause now you've shown me how God has smiled
On this chance and this moment
For this I've prayed all my life

I wanna be loved
Faithful and true
I wanna be loved
Ten million lifetimes with you girl
I wanna be loved
And after all I've been through
I'll let my heart take its chances, just to be loved by you

I wanna feel there's a reason for living again
I want us to fly far away
And I want my heart to sing the words only you can understand
So put your hand in mine, say a prayer tonight
So that we may find love

I wanna be loved
I want to be faithful and true
I wanna be loved
Ten million lifetimes with you baby
I wanna be loved
And after all I've been through
I'll let my heart take its chances, just to be loved by you

I want to be loved
Faithful and true
I want to be loved
Ten billion lifetimes, ten zillion, ten trillion lifetimes baby
And after all I've been through
I'll let my heart take a chance just to be loved by you
I'll let my heart take a chance just to be loved by you

Still With You Lyrics – Eric Benet

Heaven knows what you've been through
So much pain
Even though you can't see
I'm not far away
We always say if one of us
Somehow went away
We'd light a candle and say a prayer
Know that love still remains

Close your eyes, go to sleep
Know my love is all around you
Dream in peace, when you wake
You will know I'm still with you

Live your life from this day on
And love again
I know you'd do the same for me
That's the way that loves is supposed to be

Close your eyes, go to sleep
Know my love is all around you
Dream in peace, when you wake
You will know I'm still with you

When you feel those lonely teardrops
Rolling down your face
Just know my love watches over you
Always, always

Close your eyes, go to sleep
Know my love is all around you
Dream in peace, when you wake
You will know I'm still with you
I'm still with you

"A Day In The Life" (1999)

That's Just My Way Lyrics – Eric Benet

Feel me, take me in slowly
So you can understand how deep my love can go
Baby your river is flowing
So let me just fill you up till you just overflow

Just feel me, all over your body
I promise you'll thank me
If you do just what you're told
'Cause, you'll be whimpering gently
Shivering softly but you won't be
Sad or cold

[Chorus:]

You know what that is
That's just my way
Whenever I like to take my time
Whenever you can't believe the high
Whenever I got you open wide
That's just my way
Whenever you feel the best you had
Whatever your wish it's my command
When even your bad day ain't so bad
That's just my way
You know what that is (you know you know)
That's just my way (that's just my way)

Oh yeah completely I want you to know me
Till all of your fears and inhibitions are gone
Now walk towards me, ever so slowly
Now hike up that skirt and show me just where I belong

[Chorus]

I won't stop till the break of dawn
That's what's really goin' on
You can't do much better
I'm down what you gonna do
Baby now it's up to you
Now I won't wait forever
Girl that's just my way

[Scat]

[Chorus]

Georgy Porgy Lyrics – Eric Benet (feat. Faith Evans)

It's not your situation
I just need contemplation
Over you
I'm not so systematic

It's just that I'm an addict for your love
I'm not the only one that holds you
I never ever should have told you
You're my only girl
I'm not the only one that holds you
I never ever should have told you

You're my only world
Georgy Porgy puddin' pie
Kissed the girls and made them cry
Georgy Porgy puddin' pie
Kissed the girls and made them cry
Georgy Porgy puddin' pie
Kissed the girls and made them cry

Kissed the girls and made them cry
Kissed the girls and made them cry

Just think how long I've known ya'
It's wrong for me to own ya'
Lock and key
It's really not confusion
I'm just the young illusion
Can't you see

I'm not the only one that holds you
I never ever should have told you
You're my only girl

I'm not the only one that holds you
I never ever should have told you
You're my only world

Georgy Porgy puddin' pie
Kissed the girls and made them cry
Georgy Porgy puddin' pie
Kissed the girls and made them cry
Georgy Porgy puddin' pie
Kissed the girls and made them cry

Kissed the girls and made them cry

Spend My Life With You Lyrics – Eric Benet (feat. Tamia)

I never knew such a day could come
And I never knew such a love
Could be inside of one

And I never knew what my life was for
But now that you're here I know for sure

I never knew till I looked in your eyes
I was incomplete till the day you walked into my life
And I never knew that my heart could feel
So precious and pure
One love so real

Can I just see you every morning when
I open my eyes
Can I just feel your heart beating beside me
Every night
Can we just feel this way together
Till the end of all time
Can I just spend my life with you

Now baby the days and the weeks
And the years will roll by
But nothing will change the love inside
Of you and I

And baby I'll never find any words
That could explain
Just how much my heart my life
My soul you've changed

Can you run to these open arms
When no one else understands
Can we tell God and the whole world
I'm your woman, and you're my man
Can't you just feel how much I love you
With one touch of my hand
Can I just spend my life with you

No touch has ever felt so wonderful
(You are incredible)
And a deeper love I've never known
(I'll never let you go)
I swear this love is true
(Now and forever to you)
(only for you)
To you
Can I just see you every morning when

I open my eyes
Can I just feel your heart beating beside me
Every night
Can we just feel this way together
Till the end of all time
Can I just spend my life with you
Can you run to these open arms

When no one else understands
Can we tell God and the whole world
You're my woman, and you're my man
Can't you just feel how much I love you
With one touch of my hand
Can I just spend my life with you

Can I just spend my life with you
Can I just spend my life with you
(Forever here with you)
Can I just spend my life with you
Can I just see you every morning when I
Open my eyes

Something Real Lyrics – Eric Benet

[Hook:]

I just wanna do something real to you
Like a real brother is suppose to do
Tell me how you feel baby
I'll give you something real baby
I just wanna do something real to you
Like a real brother is suppose to do
Tell me how you feel baby
I'll give you something real baby

Let's not pretend, I promise if we keep it real
Girl you will discover, I'll give you pleasure like no other
It's very spiritual but oh so physical
Mere words can't tell, you'll have to feel it for yourself
Because it's here right here my dear
Something that makes you smile again
Something that takes all night and then
I'm going to be the one that's still
Here right here my dear
The physical's only part of it
Give me a chance to show you a deeper love
Give you something real

[Hook]

Let me make this clear
I've been doing this for years
Now I understand
What a woman needs from her man
Spending money on my baby
Take a trip downtown and daily
I'm a drive you like Ms. Daisy
Ain't no n---- that can fade me
And baby I'm here, right here my dear
You don't even have to say a word
Your body calling and I heard
I just want to make sure
Baby I'm clearI'm clear
We'll take it slow so you can feel
Every bit of all I that I got to give
And it's all for real

[Hook]

[Bridge:]

Let me come inside, stay with me tonight
I'll take you places only we two can find
I just want to give something you can feel
Because I know there's no one better
I'm just keeping it real

[Hook]

Loving Your Best Friend Lyrics – Eric Benet

Knock knock knock who's therewho's
Knock knock knock who's thereanybody
Knock knock knock who's therewho's
Who's therewho's therewho's therewho's there

[Chorus:]

If you're wondering while you're knocking
Why I ain't opening up
I'm loving your best friend
If you're wondering while you're knocking
Why I ain't opening up
I'm loving your best friend

If you wonder why I'm tripping
Started out when we stopped talking
Found myself in the corner off drinking
But the problem just won't go
I distract myself with music
But my ear drums just refused it
So I dig into my wallet
And I stare at your photo

When I think of all the time
Candlelight, dinner and wine
You're the rib that's in my spine
But you would not make no time

So your girlfriend came around
All those times that you left town
Made me feel just like a king
When she sat down on my crown

[Chorus]

Now it might seem kind of shady
And it shoots like a 380
Though I'm in another lady
I'm still thinking 'bout my baby
All the things we used to do, when I used to call you Boo
It felt like we were in grade school
But all those days are through

All those thoughts of going to the chapel
It's like someone just burned my castle
Paint the picture like Picasso
But the image fades
Now for some it might sound deep
But I just received a beep
So I called back anxiously
She put her lover on the line

If you're wondering when you're calling
Why I ain't calling you back
She said I'm loving a new man (she said to me)
If you're wondering when you're calling
Why I ain't calling you back
She said I'm lovin' a new man
(She said that she had someone new)
If you're wondering when you're calling why I ain't calling you back
I'm loving a new man

Oohh oohhbaby please (baby please)
You know this situation's buggin' me (buggin' me)
You got someone else but your girl's with me (girl's with me)
It's only so I can get by

[Chorus]

When You Think Of Me Lyrics – Eric Benet (feat. Roy Ayers)

Hello baby how ya' been,
nice to see your face again
Strange to see you coming 'round,
when you're the one who put me down
We were such a happy pair,
but then another man was there
So forgive me I don't understand,
just what you want from me

As you can see my life's been good
I moved the family out the neighborhood
And all my dreams I've realized,
to think you said it was a waste of time
It's never hard to make new friends,
when you're making Benjamins
Now did I hear you say again. . .
You're still thinking of me?

[Chorus:]

Do you feel like dying, do you break down crying
Do you fall down on your knees
Don't want to go on living, does your world start spinning
When you think of me

All I had was love to bring
But you was on some ol' material thing
Looks like you're still trying to drive them mad
But it's not easy when your credit's bad
I didn't know that I could feel so blue
It took some time but girl I'm over you
Would've gladly gave my life for you
You should have thought the whole thing through

All those nights with your girlfriends
Was just a front for you and him
Y'all was s'posed to leave for Honolulu
Leaving yo' ass was 'bout the best he could do
Dry your tears now baby it's O.K.
I'll introduce you to my fiancee
Now tell me baby say again. . .
You been thinking of me?

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]

Do you think of me in waves that pull you under
From my memory is there nowhere you can hide
Do you close your eyes, see my face and wonder
How could a love so strong be nothing but a lie

[Chorus]

Lamentation Lyrics – Eric Benet

I saw my brother
He did me wrong
He put a gun up to my face
My money's gone

I said please don't be that way
I'm just trying to make it through the day
He said you better not come 'round
me before too long

[Chorus:]

Whoa ooh
Love is crying (whoa oh)
Love is dying (whoa oh)
Love is crying (whoa oh)

Omm

I saw my sister, she did me wrong
I had a smile up on my face
But hers were so cold
I said sister please don't go
I'm just trying to say hello
She said you better not come 'round me
Before too long and I said

[Chorus]

Can you hear the cries from heaven up above
Looking down upon this world of dying love
Open up your heart hurry don't delay
Before the chance to save
the world is gone away

I asked my father, Lord what's wrong
Thru his tears I heard him say
Child be strong

'Cause the world I'm trying to save
Done turned me away
But they better come 'round
my way before too long

[Chorus]

Dust In The Wind Lyrics – Eric Benet

Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind
Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind

I close my eyes
Only for a moment, then the moment's gone
All my dreams
Pass before my eyes, a curiosity
Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind

It's the same old song
We're just a drop of water, in an endless sea
All we do
Just crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see
Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind

Life's too short brothers and sisters
Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind

Don't hang on
Nothing lasts forever, but the earth and sky
It's there always
And all your money won't another minute buy
Dust. . . all we are is dust in the wind
Life's too short brothers and sisters
Dust. . . all we are is dust in the wind

Open your eyes you've acquired quite a bit
Keep your balance don't you slip
It could all end instantly as you will see
Time waits for no one, it just moves on
There is a white one
Who won't accept the black one
Who won't accept the yellow one
Who can't accept the white. . .

When will we learn
That all we are is dust in the wind
Time for the healing to begin
All we is are dust in the wind
Time for the healing to begin
All we are is dust in the wind
Everything is dust in the wind

Why You Follow Me Lyrics – Eric Benet

Oh
Hey hey
Hey
La la la
He, friend for all my life
I would not deny
Like brothers in my mind. She, treasure of his heart
There upon his arm
Eyes of midnight stars
I've been tempted by forbidden love before
But why must she be everythin
That I've been praying for
Now this burning in my heart will I ignore
When I know that she'll be knocking at my door

[Chorus:]

Hey
Why you messing with my feelings
Why you follow me
I can read the signs you're giving
Why you follow me
Turn away from your desire
Why you follow me

Don't be playing with this fire
Why you follow me
Now she's dancing in the night
Her body is the moonlight
Too much for me to fight
Now I'm lost within her arms

Careless with my heart
I'm weakened by her charms
He has looked me in my eyes a million times
But now I turn away for I'm afraid
Of what he'll find
She's the precious love
for whom his heart beats for
But now she's always knocking at my door

[Chorus]

Come As You Are Lyrics – Eric Benet

Here in my mind
Replaying every line
Remembering all of the love we made
You told me only yesterday
Nothing could take your love away

Here in this room so many traces of you
So many nights lying by your side
Sleeping with secrets deep inside
Secrets your eyes could not deny

[Chorus 1:]

Come as you are
Lay with me
Beautiful lies once more tell me
With all the love in my heart
I'll set you free
Now that your eyes have said good-bye

I found joy so pure
My heart secure
With the love the two of us would share
And though it all seems so unfair
No one's to blame when love's not there
My whole life has changed
Feels like I'll surely go insane
'Cause my world revolved 'round
a love that never was
Before I say good-bye to love
Just hold me until the morning comes

[Chorus 2:]

Come as you are stay with me
Kiss me once more before you leave
With all the pain in my heart
I'll set you free
Now that your eyes have said good-bye

Well I know it's not easy
Finding words to let me know
But the pain of make believing
is much more than just letting go

[Chorus 1]

[Chorus 2]

Love The Hurt Away Lyrics – Eric Benet

Now we've been friends girl for quite a while
I've never been the kind for beggin' and pleadin'
But I can tell by your hazy smile
All of his lies you've been finding are heavy on your mind

He broke your heart and he took your pride
Will you ever love again?
Though you try you don't believe it
Come over here, talk to me a while
Girl if you tried you would find that

Someone like me, simple and free
I could change your mind
I'll love you in places he couldn't find
Girl don't you see for the chance I've been waiting
For you to let me
Love the hurt away (that's all I wanna do)
Love the hurt away

If you ever did, girl you need me now
You don't need the complications of running to a stranger
So I'm coming over and I'll stay a while
Taking my time till I find that sparkle in your smile
Like a father's shoulder or a mother's arms
Girl I've always been the one
For strength and understanding
The rain will stop the clouds will be gone
Girl if you tried you would find that
You're someone like me, simple and free
We're two of a kind
I'll love you in ways no one has ever tried
Girl don't you see for the chance I've been waiting
For you to let me

Love the hurt away
Love the hurt away (for so many
years I been waiting for this night baby)
Love the hurt away, love the hurt away
I been there for you and you for me
Better friends we'll never find
Nobody really knows you (knows you, knows you)
No baby not the way I do (you know it's true oooh)
We could miss an opportunity for what we've both been trying to find
And girl it's time I told you (told you told you)
That all I ever really really wanted
All I ever really wanted was to hold you
Love the hurt away

Ghetto Girl Lyrics – Eric Benet (feat. Me'Shell Ndegeocello)

Ghetto baby
I'm in need of something
That I lost along the way
You know that money's cool
But it makes my world so strange
Now I got ladies talking to me
But they ain't got shit to say
It's like I've come this far just to miss simpler days
I need to feel her tonight
Deeper love with honesty
I've seen a million girls
But there's just one kind for me

[Chorus:]

A ghetto girlliving in a ghetto world
A ghetto girlI like her 'cause she keeps it real
A ghetto girlshe lets me know just how she feels
There's only one girl for me

She won't never leave me guessing
Always let me know the deal
You know that ghetto love is always on the real
She got inner city struggles
And her blood runs deep in me
So when we make love we feel mad history
Well I'm not trying to put nobody down
In this superficial world
But if you need deeper love
You better find you a ghetto girl

[Chorus:]

A ghetto girlliving in a ghetto world
(Brother you love who you please)
A ghetto girlI like her 'cause she keeps it real
(But it's a sister girl for me)
A ghetto girlshe lets me know just how she feels
(It's that ghetto love I need)

[Bridge:]

There's only one girl for me
Girl if they tried
They would see you like I do
Hold your head up high
There's no one above you
With you by my side girl
There's nothing that I can't do
I've been around the world enough for me to see
Boy you best believe
It's going to be ghetto girls for me

Ghetto girl, ghetto girl
Ghetto girl, ghetto girl

Love Of My Own Lyrics – Eric Benet

Somewhere in my memory
An image fades from the years
But still I see my love and me together
Her face washed away by the salt of my tears
But I can feel so vivid still the love I felt for her
Someone's lying by me but I'm all alone
Soon she'll have to say good-bye
Somewhere there's a heartbeat of the love of my own
Everyday my heart beats with a prayer to find her

[Chorus:]

Take time to play around
Same games it's up and down
Can't wait till I've finally found
A love of my own
Take time to play the field
Take a chance, spin the wheel
Till I find something real
A love of my own

Flash back to the memory,
because the picture's so clear
The love high is so divine, there's nothing better
Heaven is so far away, but she'll bring it right here
And I believe that she can see my
face in her fantasy

No one here beside me she had to go
So I'll start my search again
Someday love will find me, when I don't know
But from that day and there on, in her arms is where I'll be

[Chorus]

Poetry Girl Lyrics – Eric Benet

Sing to me...

She was a poetry girl I adored
Late at night I'd hear songs from her window
Myrrh and frankincense seeped through her door
And they lingered on

As her fingers caressed her guitar
Felt like the strings of my heart she was strumming
With her words we made love from afar
As she sang her song

[Chorus:]

They were songs of change, joy and pain
All the love she made
Like she took the words from
Every dream I've known, every love outgrown
Singing on and on, like she took the words from my heart

And to the poetry girl down the hall
Late at night I would answer her calling
Like the lyrics from one of her songs
She made love to me

Now our bodies and souls intertwined
On the wings of passion we were soaring
Then by the flickering candle at night
She would sing to me

[Chorus]

Love is often unkind when we fall
For now my poetess sings to another
But when I think of those nights down the hall
From somewhere deep inside

I sing songs of change, joy and pain
All the love I've made, I take the words from
Every dream I've known, every love outgrown
Singing on and on, and I take the words from my heart

[Chorus]

"True To Myself" (1996)

True To Myself Lyrics – Eric Benet

Everybody wants to rise above
Without a touch of dignity
Without a stroke of love

Take a little time and check yourself
To live the life you're praying for
Just be true to yourself

Everybody wants to be your friend
If you got a dime to lend
You never really matter in the end to them
That's why

[Chorus:]
I'm true to myself ya'll
I'm true to my family
And love with a true integrity
I'm true to myself ya'll
True to my God above
And love with a true integrity

Everybody wants a piece of you and me
To be the victim of their greed
Or co-dependency

It's so very hard to know
Which way to go
A lie can be the gospel truth
If eloquently told

Everybody wants to make amends
If they can see another win
You never really matter in the end to them
That's why

[Chorus]

Some people live their whole life
And they'll never see
The only way to find true happiness
Is to thine own self be

True to yourself y'all
Got to live your life for you, yeah
All you gotta do, well
Is be true to yourself, well
I'm true to myself, y'all
I'm true to my little baby girl
I got to be true, oh yeah

[Chorus out]

I'll Be There Lyrics – Eric Benet

When I'm far away
Could I ever be untrue?
Naw baby

Could I fade away
Find somebody new?
Naw baby

Though this road gets long and weary
I'm always coming home to you

[Chorus]
I'll be there for you
Oh baby I'll be waiting around for you
I'll be there for you oh baby I
I'll be there for you

Could a summer breeze
Compare when you're in view?
Naw baby

Could anything or anybody
Thrill me like you do
Naw baby

So you'll never have to wonder
I commit my love to you

[Chorus]

[Solo]

Listen to me, though this road gets long and weary
Girl it always leads to you

[Chorus out]

If You Want Me To Stay Lyrics – Eric Benet

If you want me to stay
I'll be around today
Available for you to see
Well I'm about to go
And then you'll know
For me to stay here
I've got to be me

You'll never be down
That's what it's all about
Can't take me for granted smile
Count my days I'm gone
Together me and you by phone
I promised I'll be gone for a while

When you see me again
I hope that you have been
The kind of person
That you really are now

Got to get them straight
How could I ever be late
To the only woman taking up my time
How could I ever allow
I guess I wondered how
I could forget about a pocket of fun

When you know
That you'll never ever do
Number one's gonna be number one

I'll be good
I wish I could
Get the message over to you now

When you see me again
I hope that you have been
The kind of person
That you really are now

Let's Stay Together (Midnight Mix) Lyrics – Eric Benet

I never felt the wind so cold
Until I had to walk alone (without you girl)
I never knew what it was to be a man
Well let me show you baby
'Cause now I understand

I never thought it'd hurt so bad
You never know 'til you lose what you had
I don't need to waste time runnin' around all over town
Now I know where to find true lovin'

And I knew the first time that I ever seen you

[Chorus:]
Let's stay together girl it would be so nice
If we just hold on and stay together
Everything will be alright...(we'll be alright)

Tell me why it feels so strong (tell me baby, tell me baby)
The years roll by, but s'til this heart you own
I never felt a love so completely
Don't you know we're riding on destiny

And I knew the first time that I ever seen you

[Chorus]

Ooh girl you got me
'Cause when I wake up
You're the first thing on my mind

Tomorrow will be
So let's leave the past behind
Just let me lead you
To our happy ever after

And girl when we arrive
Why don't we stay awhile

[Chorus out]

Just Friends Lyrics – Eric Benet

This feels so wrong, I'm so confused
You give me love, but you can't be true
You say you need your space and time
With or without you I'll lose my mind

Oh yes I know if meant to be
In the future we'll be hand in hand
But girl right now you're killing me
'Cause I know you're making love to another man

[Chorus:]
Do you really want to be just friends
Don't you s'til love me
It's so hard for me to understand
You say you love me

You call me for some time to spend
Just long as I'm out your door by 10:00pm
Platonic love will have to suffice
Can't bear the thought of you out of my life

I've tried to end this misery
But I'm always picking up that phone
Swallow my pride, I beg and plead
But you always sing the same ole song, "We can be friends"

[Chorus]

[Solo]

[Chorus out]

Femininity Lyrics – Eric Benet

Ooh what you do to me (yeah yeah)

Quietly your silhouette approaches me
A vision far too lovely to define (hey yeah)
Tenderly you take complete control of me
The feminine seduction of body, soul and mind (yeah)

[Chorus:]
Touch me and I feel your femininity
Girl you're the lady women want to be
Softly you move when you're making love to me
Love me every night with femininity

A child of innocence is how you look at me
But it's the woman's touch that makes it feel so right (so right)
Your lips consume my deepest sensitivity
It feels so good it makes me wanna cry (makes me cry)

[Chorus:]
Oh, oh, oh
Femininity
Oh, Femininity

Let me feel myself inside you once again
I love the way you say it's just for me
A lady in the purest sense of elegance
But when the lights go down girl you're making love, strong, wild and free

[Chorus]

I like the way you take control of me
You have a little certain quality
Not many girls would ever dare to be
The lady that you are femininity

[Vamp out]

While You Were Here Lyrics – Eric Benet

Through this veil of tears
I can see what was suppose to be
Now it's all so clear
Love from you was so real, so true, genuine
Stronger than time

[Chorus:]
Wipe your tears away
Kiss you every morning
Hear every word you had to say
Are all the things I should have done
While you were here
And now the foolish boy has grown
Into this man I'm sorry you've never known
I'm not afraid to love
'Cause every beat of my heart
Echoes all those memories from way back when
And the man I should have been

[Chorus]

Faded dreams of you and me
And of our little family
Gone forever
My God in heaven
Before the gift of clarity
We pay the price of misery
Why please tell me why

Her mommy's gone away
But in her eyes I see you more each day
How can I repay
All your love unreturned
From so long, long ago
Now I know

[Alternate Chorus]
I'll wipe her tears away
Kiss her every morning
Hear every word she has to say
Do all the things that you
Would do if you were here
Brighten her rainy day
Catch her when she's fallen
Say I love you each and every day
Do all the things that you
Would do if you were here

[Chorus]

Spiritual Thang Lyrics – Eric Benet

Ooh girl, lover friend
From the day we first began
Felt a connection to you

Somehow can't explain
No one's made me feel the same way
You do

Your heart and mine are one
Somethin' deep is goin' on
It's like we've been here before

Seems like God above
Had a reason to bring your love
To me

[Chorus:]
I love what I'm feelin' (a spiritual thang)
You're giving to me, yeah (a spiritual thang)
I know it's for real (a spiritual thang)
This spiritual love you bring (a spiritual thang)

Love won't fade away
When it's a spiritual thang
It's like we're one in the same

Girl, we got a love that the whole
World's been searching for
You and me, don't you know that

[Chorus]

[Guitar Solo]

Your heart is in beat with mine
And no stronger love will I find
Together our souls intertwined
Together as one, yeah...

[Chorus out]

Chains Lyrics – Eric Benet

Break the chain

Tracy is a good girl
Sweet 16
Her daddy's in her bedroom
Makes her feel unclean
She's slave to a secret
That her dad and she keep together

Nathan is a genius
Or at least he was
Nat traded future for a glass-pipe-buzz
Nat lives on the streets now
For $20 bills he'll do whatever

[Chorus:]
Don't stop breaking the chains
Don't stop breakin' away
Don't be afraid of breaking the chains
It's up to no one else
You've got to free yourself

Rosie is a waitress at the airport lounge
She gave up on her dreams
Her self esteem's broke down
Now she stares out the window
Watching people fly around forever

[Chorus]

Make a change don't you be afraid, go on
Free your mind from the fear inside
And you won't be chained anymore

Look here I'm a black man
And they say I'm free
Seems like somebody s'til got chains on me

Well we got brothers killing brothers
Leaving young mothers to raise a family
We gotta stay together to make it better

[Chorus out]

All In The Game Lyrics – Eric Benet

Why is my heart so
Afraid of letting go
And why did I push you away

It's so simple to see
That we were meant to be
But why are three words hard to say

It's all in the game
It's all in the game of love
It's all in the game

After all of this time
Can't get you off of my mind girl
To you every girl I'd compare

Every night she's trying
To satisfy me
But we both know nothing's there

It's all in the game (why must I keep playing)
It's all in the game of love
It's all in the game (I know love is waiting)

I think it's time I should let you know
I'm going to love you the rest of my life
I can't believe I once let you go
No one's to blame
It's all in the game

[Solo]

[Chorus out]

More Than Just A Girlfriend Lyrics – Eric Benet

Girl it's true
I can't deny
I've been around a couple of times
So you're afraid
This love in me
Tomorrow we'll no longer be
My heart beats stronger
At the end of each day
Can you feel the rhythm between the two of us
I'd be a fool to turn away
Baby all I'm trying to say is

[Chorus:]
You're so much more than just a girlfriend
You're more than just a temporary love of mine
You're so much more than just a girlfriend
So I'll ask you forever be mine

'Cause when I'm making love to you
I can tell it's not pretend
Many things to me are you
Not just another lady friend
See every brother has a place in his heart
Only one lady can find her way to it
Only one girl
To see your smile is all I need
To know that you're my destiny

[Chorus]

So I'll stay for always 'til the end of time
Much more than loves before
Don't wanna let you go
Right here is where I'll stay
Don't you ever go away

[Chorus out]

What If We Was Cool lyrics - eric benet

What if I made some time to listen to you
What if you made some time to hear me too
What if we took the time to realize
Givin' some love is givin' compromise
What if I could show you that my love is true
Without all these changes we be going through
What if we learned to play it by the rules

[Chorus:]
What if we was cool...cool
Wasn't acting like fools...fools
What if we was cool...cool
Wouldn't that be cool

What if we tried something not tried before
What if we let love open up the door
What if we set some goals, but not too high
What if we both agreed to really try
What if we knew that we could disagree
But s'til made love the first priority
Show me love like you're suppose to do

[Chorus]

Do you hear me baby
'Cause our love is fading
Can I get the message through to you
I'm someone to love

What if we had equality for all men
What if we forgot all our forefather sins
What if you forgot the color of my skin
What if you could wear the skin I'm in

What if we knew that we could disagree
But still make love the first priority
Show me love like you're suppose to do

[Chorus]
People can yousee
'Cause our love is fading
Can I get a message through to you
Can we keep this thing cool
A lot of love we're needing
I'm ready and I'm willing
Don't you know that I s'til think of you
As someone to love

[Chorus out]

Let's Stay Together lyrics - eric benet

I never felt the wind so cold
Until I had to walk alone (without you girl)
I never knew what it was to be a man
Well let me show you baby
'Cause now I understand

I never thought it'd hurt so bad
You never know 'til you lose what you had
I don't need to waste time runnin' around all over town
Now I know where to find true lovin'

And I knew the first time that I ever seen you

[Chorus:]
Let's stay together girl it would be so nice
If we just hold on and stay together
Everything will be alright...(we'll be alright)

Tell me why it feels so strong (tell me baby, tell me baby)
The years roll by, but s'til this heart you own
I never felt a love so completely
Don't you know we're riding on destiny

And I knew the first time that I ever seen you

[Chorus]

Ooh girl you got me
'Cause when I wake up
You're the first thing on my mind

Tomorrow will be
So let's leave the past behind
Just let me lead you
To our happy ever after

And girl when we arrive
Why don't we stay awhile

[Chorus out]

Love Don't Love Me lyrics - eric benet

Time
I still don't know the reason that for all this time
I'm all alone but see it comes as no surprise
it seems like I go left each time that love goes right
every time

By chance, something happens every time I get a chance
I feel the rhythm but I just don't know the dance
I want to move with you but something holds me back
I'm holding back, yeah

All I ever needed I could never find
all I ever wanted was to get it right
Somebody tell me what is wrong with me
I wasn't sure but I know now I believe
That it must be, love don't love me, love don't love me

Oh why,
I know exactly what is missing in my life,
Something for sure and something pure maybe a wife
but then I'm out the door before the morning light
Every night

So I pray
I'm so afraid I'm always gonna be this way
Relationships only to pass the time away
Fear of commitment is a habit hard to break
I must say, yeah

All I ever needed I could never find
all I ever wanted was to get it right
Somebody tell me what is wrong with me
I wasn't sure but I know now I believe
That it must be, love don't love me, love don't love me

All I ever wanted was some happiness,
take it to a level that's above the rest
I wanna know how it's supposed to be
I wanna feel something real but
I believe that it must be love don't love me, love don't love me

Someone teach my heart to fall in love again
That all I have to fear is fear itself
I know that I was born to love one woman
but why must I keep running through the rest? Oh---- Yeah

All I ever needed I could never find
all I ever wanted was to get it right
Somebody tell me what is wrong with me
I wasn't sure but I know now I believe
That it must be, love don't love me, love don't love me
no it don't love me

All I ever wanted was some happiness,
take it to a level that's above the rest
I wanna know how it's supposed to be
I wanna feel something real but
I believe that it must be love don't love me, love don't love me Oh-oh
