Dance (With U)

(Lemar Obika, Craig Paul Hardy, Fitzgerald Scott)

Dance dance dance

Dance dance dance

Makes me want to dance

When I saw you girl I knew

That you were something out of a story book

And I told me heart that we gotta take one look

I imagine both me and you

Doing what lovers do

Holding hands in the park

Making love girl after dark

The sounds of the birds and the bees

Bringing you to your knees

Is all I want to do yeah

Dance dance dance, dance dance dance

Makes me want to dance

I just want to dance with you

I just want to roll with you

I just want to be the one who really gets to know you

I don’t care and I don’t mind

I will spend the whole of my time

This is what it takes for me

To hold it down and make you mine

Every day spent like the first

Taking us right back to the birth of our love

Seems to me like I never get enough

Think about the way that we first kissed

It was a night like this

We stayed together every day, ever since

The sounds of the birds and the bees

Bringing you to your knees

Is all I want to do yeah

The only thing between us is the floor

The DJ’s playing our favourite song

So lets not take to long

I want to dance all through the night with you

Dance, dance daaaance, yeah

I just want to dance with you [Repeat]

I just want to roll with you

I just want to be the one who really gets to know you

I don’t care and I don’t mind

I will spend the whole of my time

This is what it takes for me to hold it down and make you mine

Dance dance dance, dance dance dance

Makes me want to dance

50/50

(Mikkel Eriksen)

Been a long time

You say you missed me

Word gets round

You shouldn’t have dissed me

Step back, don’t try to kiss me

Right about now I’m 50/50

I heard it through the grapevine that you were with him

Just the other night

I don’t know why I

Try hard to keep

You so happy

When you don’t love me

Don’t love me

Are you calling me a liar?

Are you saying that

I’m not tellin’ the truth?

Denying what she told me

You know you got way

Too much to lose

You’re claiming they are rumours

You say you got nothin’ else to hide

How come she told me?

She saw somebody by your side

I know everything

When I sent you on

That shopping spree

You went with him

Spending my money

Girl I’m so sorry

But you gotta leave me,

Just leave me

Are you calling me a liar?

Are you saying that

I’m not tellin’ the truth?

Denying what she told me

You know you got way

Too much to lose

You’re claiming they are rumours

You say you got nothin’ else to hide

How come she told me?

She saw somebody by your side

Can’t knock this no you

Can’t hold me down

Keep hustling - girl I

Won’t be around

Can’t knock this no you

Can’t hold me down

Keep hustling - girl I

Won’t be around

Lullaby

(Ainslie Thomas Henderson, Lemar Izubundu Obika)

Open her eyes

Cause her to fall in love with me

Help me to speak

Bless me with words she will feel

Oh let it rain

Droplets of sunshine in her life

Give her the world

But let it be me she longs to hold

I can’t wait

I won’t wait

‘Cause tomorrow’s too late

And I need her right now in my life

All that I’m praying for

Is my voice finds her like a lullaby

Sings her to sleep

She’ll wake with me

Rewind the days

To when she first laid eyes on

Ignite the fire

Let it burn uncontrollably

Oh I’m in love

I’ve never felt this way before

Make her feel the same

And I will ask of you no more

I can’t wait

I won’t wait

‘Cause tomorrow’s too late

And I need her right now in my life

[Chorus:]

All that I’m praying for

Is my love finds her like a lullaby

Finds her in the night

Sings her to sleep

All that I’m hoping for

Is my voice finds her like a lullaby

Sings her to sleep

She’ll wake with me

This is my prayer

I’ve no shame to declare that I’m praying for her

(Please wake with me)

I laid down a love song

Made up this melody

Oh let this lullaby

Cry out and catch her

[Chorus x2]

She’s all I want

She’ll wake with me

Another Day

(William Lee Whedbee, Schuylar Keeton, Scott Fitzgerald)

Is it really over?

Between us two,

Then why don’t you love me?

The way that I still love you,

So many mistakes made,

In so little time,

Girl I’m so regretful,

I must have been out of my mind.

I don’t want to live another day

Without you by my side

I don’t want to run anymore

Running out of places to hide

Ever since you went away

Slowly I’ve seen

That I shoulda got

Down on my knees

And begged you to stay with me

And what I’m feeling for you,

Never could I try to hide,

The fact that I adore you,

Always seems to come outside,

You were my heartbeat,

The reason I breathe,

Please baby forgive me,

While I’m down on my knees

I don’t want to live another day

Without you by my side

I don’t want to run anymore

Running out of places to hide

Ever since you went away

Slowly I’ve seen

That I shoulda got

Down on my knees

And begged you to stay with me

I don’t want to live another day

Without you by my side

I don’t want to run anymore

Running out of places to hide

Ever since you went away

Slowly I’ve seen

That I shoulda got

Down on my knees

And begged you to stay with me

I don’t want to live another day

Without you by my side

I don’t want to run anymore

Running out of places to hide

Ever since you went away

Slowly I’ve seen

That I shoulda got

Down on my knees

And begged you to stay with me

I shoulda got down on my knees

And begged you to stay with me

I don’t want to see

I don’t want to throw

I can’t see the night

You’re my heart and soul

If There’s Any Justice

(Peter Vale, Mick Leeson)

Yeah

I would be your man, You would be my girl

Oh yeah

I believe, I believe

If there’s any justice in the world

I would be your man, You would be my girl

Oh yeah

If I found you first you know its true,

He would be alone I would be with you

When you decide, Don’t let me down

Cause there’s nothing to be certain in my life And you’ve seen a thousand times

There’s not much justice in the world

Oh No, Uh

If there’s any justice in your heart

You’re love really changed

Is it in too hard, Oh no

Why don’t you remember how it feels, not to give a damn for anyone but me, yeah

I can’t believe

You’d be deceived

Changing memories from truth to fantasy

When there’s nothing left but tears

And there’s not much justice in the world, oh

Just because its wrapped around your finger

Don’t fool yourself with dreams that might appear, oh

If in time you stop and trust your feelings

The truth is out there somewhere

It’s blowing in the wind, Oh

If there’s any justice in the world

I would be your man, You would be my girl

Oh yeah

If I found you first you know its true, he would be alone and I would beeee with yoooou

Yeah

When you decide

Don’t let me down

Cause there’s nothing to be certain in my life And I’ve seen a thousand times

There’s not much justice in the world

No

If I should lose you girl you know

That there’s not much justice in the world

No No

If there’s any justice in the world

You’re gonna be my baby

You’re gonna be my baby

You’re gonna be my baby

Yeah, Yeah

Time to Grow

(Lemar Obita, Fitzgerald Scott)

Last night I tried but I couldn’t sleep

Thoughts of you were in my head

I was lonely and I needed you next to me

Life is harder since you left

I never meant to do you wrong

And now all is said and done

I hope you won’t be gone too long, No

Where do I go

What do I do

I can’t deny I still feel something

And girl, I wish you could say you feel the same

You’ve broken the bond

I gotta move on

But how do I end this lonely feeling?

You’ve gone, I’m here, alone

I guess it’s time to grow

I try to speak, but my words never catch the air

Like you never knew I was there

Take me back to the days when you really cared

Can we make love re-appear?

I can’t go on the roads too long

And now all is said and done

I can’t go forward if my heart’s still where I’m coming from

Where do I go

What do I do

I can’t deny I still feel something

And girl, I wish you could say you feel the same

You’ve broken the bond

I gotta move on

But how do I end this lonely feeling?

You’ve gone, I’m here, alone

I guess it’s time to grow

Crying time is over

I know I can’t control her feelings

If she won’t return, then I guess I’ll be a man

and move on

Time to grow, and move on

Make life better than it was before

Time to grow and move on

Make love better than I did before

Time to grow, and move on

Make life better than it was before

Time to grow and move on

Make love better than I did before

Though you’ve gone, and I’m here, alone

I guess it’s time to grow

It’s Not That Easy

(Sigurd Jansen, Glenn Tharaldsen, Fredrik Fruis, Lorne Alistair Tennant, Lars Jensen, Ola Larsson)

Was it me?

Was it you?

Was it all the little things that I didn’t do?

Try to move on, but I can’t

No I can’t imagine being someone else’s man

Girl I tried, I tried a million times

To get you off my mind

It’s not that easy no

Not that easy

Don’t you know how hard it is for me

To smile and say goodbye

It’s not that easy no

It’s not that easy

It’s not over

Not for me

Used to have so much faith and I still believe

You’re my weakness

You’re my strength

And one without the other

Just don’t make no sense

Grl I tried, I tried a million times

To get you off my mind

It’s not that easy no

Not that easy

Don’t you know how hard it is for me

To smile and say goodbye

It’s not that easy no

It’s not that easy

It’s not as easy for me

As it is for you

Let me talk about it

It’s not that easy

Listen

What am I meant to do without your love, your love

What am I meant to do without your love

Oh what am I meant to do without your love, your love

What am I meant to do without your love

Girl I tried, I tried a million times

To get you off my mind

It’s not that easy no

Not that easy

Don’t you know how hard it is for me

To smile and say goodbye

It’s not that easy no

It’s not that easy

What am I meant to do without your love, your love

What am I meant to do without your love

What am I meant to do without your love, your love

What am I meant to do without your love

Don’t you know how hard it is for me

To smile and say goodbye

It’s not that easy no

It’s not that easy
