    Loved Me Back to Life

    I was walking dead
    Stuck inside my head
    I couldn't get out
    Turned the lights down
    The voices inside were so loud
    Needed a jump start
    Catatonia
    I couldn't feel
    I wished that i could disappear
    The voices inside were so real

    But you stood by my side
    Night after night
    Night after night

    You loved me back to life
    Life...
    From the coma
    The wait is over
    You loved me back to life
    Life...
    From the coma
    We're lovers again tonight

    You woke me up
    One touch and I felt alive
    You loved me back to life
    Back to life thought I'd die
    The voices inside were so quiet

    But you stood by my side
    Night after night
    Night after night

    You loved me back to life
    Life...
    From the coma
    The wait is over
    You loved me back to life
    Life...
    From the coma
    We're lovers again tonight

    Strong hands
    Thick skin
    And an open heart
    You saw through the pain
    Saw through the mask
    You never gave up on me

    You loved me back to life
    Life...
    From the coma
    The wait is over
    You loved me back to life
    Life...
    From the coma
    We're lovers again tonight

    Somebody Loves Somebody

    I don't want another piece of your mind
    So take it somewhere else for the night
    ‘Cause I can't take another goodbye
    If you want a fight
    Bite your tongue before you explode
    Don't let this get out of control
    You don't want me to leave you alone

    When somebody loves somebody
    That's the way it's supposed to be
    ‘Cause you know nobody else
    Would put up with your games, oh
    I don't believe you lover
    You don't wanna go, no
    That's not the way it is
    When somebody loves somebody
    When somebody loves somebody

    Wait
    I'm hearing every word that you say
    You wonder if we made a mistake
    It's written all over your face
    You know its too late
    We've already fallen in love
    Tell me is it askin' too much
    For you to stick it out when it's tough
    Is it ever enough

    When somebody loves somebody
    That's the way it's supposed to be
    ‘Cause you know nobody else
    Would put up with your games, oh
    I don't believe you lover
    You don't wanna go, no
    That's not the way it is
    When somebody loves somebody
    When somebody loves somebody

    Some people live their lives
    Never believing in love
    I don't want that for us

    When somebody loves somebody
    That's the way it's supposed to be
    ‘Cause you know nobody else
    Would put up with your games, oh
    I don't believe you lover
    You don't wanna go, no
    That's not the way it is
    When somebody loves somebody
    When somebody loves somebody

    When somebody loves somebody
    That's the way it's supposed to be
    ‘Cause you know nobody else
    Would put up with your games, oh
    I don't believe you lover
    You don't wanna go, no
    That's not the way it is
    When somebody loves somebody
    When somebody loves somebody

    Incredible (duet with Ne-Yo)

    Whole world is watching us now
    It’s a little intimidating
    But since there’s no way to come down
    Let’s give ’em something amazing

    Let’s make them remember
    Using one word

    Incredible
    (Oh oh oh oh oh)
    Incredible
    (Oh oh oh oh oh)
    Let’s make them remember
    We were incredible
    Simply incredible

    We even counted us out
    We weren’t sure we’d make it
    But we learned no matter what they dish out
    It’s nothing, we can take it

    We’ll go down in history
    They’ll describe our love as

    Incredible
    (Oh oh oh oh oh)
    Oh incredible
    (Oh oh oh oh oh)
    Let’s make them remember
    That we were
    We were incredible
    Simply incredible

    Let’s make them remember
    They’ll describe our love as

    Incredible
    (Oh oh oh oh oh)
    Oh incredible
    (Oh oh oh oh oh)
    Let’s make them remember
    That we were
    We were incredible
    Simply incredible

    Let’s give ’em something amazing

    Water and a Flame

    Seven days has gone so fast
    I really thought the pain would pass
    It’s been nearly an hour
    Since I thought of you

    But you’re not answering the phone
    I’d settle for a busy tone
    At least by that I’d know that you’re okay
    A guy like you ain’t meant to go away, no

    Now you’re gone
    There’s nothing else I want
    Now that it’s over
    There’s nothing else I want
    What have I done
    Looks like I was wrong
    Is everything really meant to change
    I guess we’re like water and a flame
    Water and a flame

    I’m tired of this empty house
    I need a drink to get me out
    A couple more ’til I forget your name
    I saw a guy that looked like you
    I did not know quite what to do
    It took a power of will to break my stare
    I realized what I wanted wasn’t there

    Now you’re gone
    There’s nothing else I want
    Now that it’s over
    There’s nothing else I want
    What have I done
    Looks like I was wrong
    Is everything really meant to change
    I guess we’re like water and a flame
    Water and a flame

    And if you see me coming
    Look away, look away
    And if your mind is made up
    Look away, I will look away

    And, if you’re worried about me
    I’m okay, I’m okay, yes I am

    Now you’re gone
    There’s nothing else I want
    Now that it’s over
    There’s nothing else I want
    What have I done
    Looks like I was wrong
    Is everything really meant to change
    I guess we’re like water and a flame
    Water and a flame

    Breakaway

    From the fire in your words
    To the dagger in your eye
    I just have to lay my body down
    Go and lay my body down

    I pretend to be asleep
    But I know you hear me cry
    I just have to lay my body down
    Go and lay my body down

    But if I really wanna change
    Then I must admit that I'm the one to blame

    If I could breakaway
    Cut the chord
    For worse or better

    If I could turn the page
    At last and say
    Goodbye forever

    But on the other side
    Of yesterday
    Beyond the heartache
    What if all I am
    Without the pain
    Is empty heartache

    I could breakaway

    Is it true what people say
    That it's darkest before dawn
    I just have to lay my body down
    Go and lay my body down

    Any hope we might have saved
    Is too weak to let live on
    I just have to lay my body down
    Go and lay my body down

    And if I really wanna change
    Then tonight I'm gonna need all of my strength

    If I could breakaway
    Cut the chord
    For worse or better

    If I could turn the page
    At last and say
    Goodbye forever

    Oh, anything is better than this

    I know
    Anything is better

    If I could breakaway
    Cut the chord
    For worse or better

    If I could turn the page
    At last and say
    Goodbye forever

    If I could breakaway

    If I could turn the page

    But on the other side
    Of yesterday
    Beyond the heartache
    What if all I am
    Without the pain
    Is empty heartache

    I could breakaway

    Save Your Soul

    Princess painless
    Empty pillowcases
    One love too blind
    I held you, felt you
    Shook you past I love yous
    My scars, your lies

    Oh ’cause I
    Kept believing every word you said
    Wrapped up in every kiss you poisoned
    I could swear I never tasted sin
    But if I just knew

    I’ll forget what you’ve done
    But I can’t save your soul
    I won’t preach, I won’t judge
    Save your soul
    You could get on your knees
    But I can’t save your soul
    Baby, just let me be, whoa
    Oooh oooh
    Baby I can’t save your soul
    Oooh ooooh
    I can’t save your soul
    Oooh oooh
    Baby I can’t save your soul
    Oooh oooh
    I can’t save your soul

    Black tears streaming
    No more slick concealing
    No trust, no love
    I can’t hear you
    No, I don’t even know you
    Door shut, case closed

    How could I
    Keep believing every word you said
    Wrapped up in every kiss you poisoned
    I could swear I never saw the sin
    But if I just knew

    I’ll forget what you’ve done
    But I can’t save your soul
    I won’t preach, I won’t judge
    Save your soul
    You could get on your knees
    But I can’t save your soul
    Baby, just let me be, whoa
    Oooh oooh
    Baby I can’t save your soul
    Oooh ooooh
    I can’t save your soul
    Oooh oooh
    Baby I can’t save your soul
    Oooh oooh
    I can’t save your soul

    RAP INTERLUDE

    I’ll forget what you’ve done
    But I can’t save your soul
    I won’t preach, I won’t judge
    Save your soul
    You could get on your knees
    But I can’t save your soul
    Baby, just let me be, whoa
    Oooh oooh
    Baby I can’t save your soul
    Oooh ooooh
    I can’t save your soul
    Oooh oooh
    Baby I can’t save your soul
    Oooh oooh
    I can’t save your soul

    Didn't Know Love

    I thought I had it long ago
    I held on but it let go
    It kissed me on a subway train, and I melted
    It got my hand, it brushed my cheek
    It moved right in, it cut me deep
    You know it even had a name, I really felt it

    I didn’t know love, not even close
    This is more beautiful and frightening than I’ve ever known
    It’s making me weak, making me strong
    It’s making me afraid I’m gonna wake up and find it gone
    I didn’t know love

    It’s a blessing, it’s a curse
    You know you’ve found it when it hurts
    It can drive you off a cliff
    But it’s worth it
    Careful where you spend the night
    It’s complicated when it’s right
    You can make me such a mess
    Yeah, you’re perfect

    But, I didn’t know love, not even close
    This is more beautiful and frightening than I’ve ever known
    It’s making me weak, making me strong
    It’s making me afraid I’m gonna wake up and find you gone
    I didn’t know love

    No, I didn’t know love

    Now you’re lying in my arms beside me
    In the past, I’d settle for a touch
    I’d tell myself it was enough
    I was lying, lying, lying,
    ’Cause I didn’t know love

    I didn’t know love, not even close
    This is more beautiful and frightening than I’ve ever known
    It’s making me weak, making me strong
    It’s making me afraid I’m gonna wake up and find you gone
    I didn’t know love

    No, I didn’t know love

    I didn’t know love

    I didn’t know love

    Thank You

    Down and out, all alone
    Sitting here, sad and blue
    Sun is now going down
    Kinda cold, seeking refuge

    Or just a friendly face
    Or maybe just a smile
    Someone that understands
    What I’m going through right now

    And just before I lay me down to never wake
    I look up and I see you
    So with everything I am

    Thank you
    Thank you
    Because you didn’t have to
    Thank you
    Thank you
    With everything I am
    Thank you

    For the real sacrifice and the truth
    Behind your given heart
    And how you never judge a fault in me
    Help because you want it too

    And for your friendly face
    And for just your smile
    Simply understanding
    What I’m going through right now

    Just before I lay me down to never wake
    I look up and I see you
    So with everything I am

    Thank you
    Thank you
    Because you didn’t have to
    Thank you
    Thank you
    With everything I am
    Thank you

    ’Cause when no one else would care, you did
    And when no one else was there, you were
    Now I am so aware
    You’re a blessing to me
    What did I do to deserve
    To deserve you

    There’s no words
    That could describe
    That could describe
    How much I

    Thank you
    Thank you
    Because you didn’t have to
    Thank you
    Thank you
    With everything I am
    Thank you

    Thank you
    Thank you
    Because you didn’t have to
    Thank you
    Thank you
    With everything I am
    Thank you

    Overjoyed (duet with Stevie Wonder)

    Over time
    I’ve been building my castle of love
    Just for two
    Though you never knew you were my reason
    I’ve gone much too far for you now to say
    That I’ve got to throw my castle away

    Over dreams
    I have picked out a perfect come true
    Though you never knew it was of you I’ve been dreaming
    And the sandman has come from too far away
    For you to say come back some other day

    And though you don’t believe that they do
    They do come true
    For did my dreams
    Come true when I looked at you
    And maybe too, if you would believe
    You too might be
    Overjoyed, over loved, over me

    Over hearts, I have painfully turned every stone
    Just to find, I had found what I’ve searched to discover
    I’ve come much too far for me now to find
    The love that I’ve sought can never be mine

    And though you don’t believe that they do
    They do come true
    For did my dreams
    Come true when I looked at you
    And maybe too, if you would believe
    You too might be
    Overjoyed, over loved, over me

    And though the odds say improbable
    What do they know
    For in romance
    All true love needs is a chance
    And maybe with a chance you will find
    You too like I
    Overjoyed, over loved, over you

    Over you

     

    (Stevie Wonder)

    Thankful

    Circle ’round like butterflies
    Escape the pourin’ rain
    Run into the alleyways
    Steal a little kiss again
    You’re my only weakness
    But somehow you make me strong
    After chasin’ ghosts and fairytales
    I’m right where I belong

    And I don’t know where I’ve been lookin’
    And I don’t care where you have been before

    But I’m thankful to be here
    Thankful to feel clear
    Thankful my prayers have been answered
    I’m thankful you listened
    Thankful to heaven
    Thankful for feelin’ alive again
    Thankful that hearts always mend

    I write it all on paper dolls
    Let them play their little games
    Of who loves who and what is true
    No one ever takes the blame
    I see you through the window
    And it takes my breath away
    And I lose the floor beneath me
    And all that’s left to say is

    I don’t know where I was goin’
    And I don’t care where we have been before

    But I’m thankful to be here
    Thankful to feel clear
    Thankful my prayers have been answered
    I’m thankful you listened
    Thankful to heaven
    Thankful for feelin’ alive again
    Thankful that hearts always mend

    And I caught rainbows falling down
    When I stopped spinnin’ around and around and around

    But I’m thankful to be here
    Thankful to feel clear
    Thankful my prayers have been answered
    I’m thankful you listened
    Thankful to heaven
    Thankful for feelin’ alive again
    Thankful that hearts always mend

    At Seventeen

    I learned the truth at seventeen
    That love was meant for beauty queens
    And high school girls with clear-skinned smiles
    Who married young and then retired


    The Valentines I never knew
    The Friday night charades of youth
    Were spent on one more beautiful
    At seventeen I learned the truth...


    And those of us with ravaged faces
    Lacking in the social graces
    Desperately remained at home
    Inventing lovers on the phone
    Who called to say "Come dance with me"
    And murmured vague obscenities
    It isn't all it seems at seventeen...


    A brown-eyed girl in hand-me-downs
    Whose name I never could pronounce
    Said "Pity, please, the ones who serve
    They only get what they deserve"
    The rich-relationed hometown queen
    Marries into what she needs
    With a guarantee of company
    And haven for the elderly...


    So remember those who win the game
    Lose the love they sought to gain
    In debitures of quality and dubious integrity
    Their small-town eyes will gape at you
    In dull surprise when payment's due
    Exceeds accounts received at seventeen...


    To those of us who knew the pain
    Of Valentines that never came
    And those whose names were never called
    When choosing sides for basketball
    It was long ago and far away
    The world was younger than today
    When dreams were all they gave for free
    To ugly duckling girls like me...


    We all play the game, and when we dare
    We cheat ourselves at solitaire
    Inventing lovers on the phone
    Repenting other lives unknown
    That call and say "Come dance with me"
    And murmur vague obscenities
    At ugly girls like me, at seventeen...

    Always Be Your Girl

    I listen to my heartbeat and I try to follow where it leads me
    That's right, I don't wake up in the shadows anymore
    I can finally breathe
    I did a little deep-down searchin'
    Took a little time to work it through
    But I found everything the day that I had you

    I once was the lost one
    Like a wayward child
    Now you're the light that leads the way

    I can melt the drops of freezing rain
    I will fly in and save the day
    I will always try to make it better than it was for me
    You'll always be the first one in my prayers
    Just close your eyes and I am there
    It's a better world since you're my boy
    I'll always be your girl

    I'm pickin' up all the pieces
    When I put 'em back together I'm like new
    'Cause my greatest wish has already come true
    We'll always be connected, baby
    Like a button to a sleeve
    And this lullaby will send you off to sleep

    It's hard to imagine my life before you
    'Cause you're the light that leads the way

    I can melt the drops of freezing rain
    I will fly in and save the day
    I will always try to make it better than it was for me
    You'll always be the first one in my prayers
    Just close your eyes and I am there
    It's a better world since you're my boy
    I'll always be your girl

    I'll be holdin' the rope if you tumble and fall
    There's love after love after all

    We'll always be connected, baby
    You're like a button on my sleeve
    And this lullaby...

    I can melt the drops of freezing rain
    I will fly in and save the day
    I will always try to make it better than it was for me
    You'll always be the first one in my prayers
    Just close your eyes and I am there
    It's a better world since you're my boy
    I'll always be your girl

    Unfinished Songs

    So you're thinking it's ending
    But it's only just begun
    Your whole life is there right
    Right in front of you
    Life's a story that is all twists and turns
    All that matters is the lessons we learn

    'Cause we're all unfinished songs
    Waiting for the best part to come along, hey, hey
    And we're all pictures half drawn
    We can be anything we want, hey, hey

    Now is your time
    It's your life
    No one's living it but you
    In your hands is your chance to live the life you choose
    Life's like music
    There's so much still unsung
    Make it magic
    There's so much still to come

    'Cause we're all unfinished songs
    Waiting for the best part to come along, hey, hey
    And we're all pictures half drawn
    We can be anything we want, hey, hey

    You can write the song
    And write the story
    Live all of this life in all its glory
    Take the time to make the time to make each moment count
    It's your life
    It's your call
    Grab the chance
    Have it all

    'Cause we're all unfinished songs
    Waiting for the best part to come along, hey, hey
    And we're all pictures half drawn
    We can be anything we want, hey, hey

    'Cause we're all unfinished songs
    Waiting for the best part to come along, hey, hey

    You can write the song
    And write the story

    How Do You Keep the Music Playing

    How do you keep the music playing?
    How do you make it last?
    How do you keep the song from fading too fast?
    How do you lose yourself to someone?
    And never lose your way
    And how do you not run out of new things to say?
    And since we know we're always changing
    How can it be the same?
    And tell me how year after year
    You're sure your heart will fall apart
    Each time you hear his name
    I know the way I feel for him
    It's now or never
    The more I love the more that I'm afraid
    That in his arms I may not see forever.
    Forever...

    If we can be the best of lovers
    Yet be the best of friends
    If we can try with everyday to make it better as it grows
    With any luck, then I suppose
    The music never ends

    I know the way I feel for him
    It's now or never!
    The more I love the more that I'm afraid
    That in his arms I may not see forever
    Forever...
    If we can be the best of lovers
    Yet be the best of friends
    If we can try with everyday to make it better as it grows
    With any luck, then I suppose
    The music never ends

    Lullabye (Goodnight, My Angel)

    Goodnight my angel, time to close your eyes
    And save these questions for another day
    I think I know what you've been asking me
    I think you know what I've been trying to say
    I promised I would never leave you
    Then you should always know
    Wherever you may go, no matter where you are
    I never will be far away

    Goodnight my angel, now it's time to sleep
    And still so many things I want to say
    Remember all the songs you sang for me
    When we went sailing on an emerald bay
    And like a boat out on the ocean
    I'm rocking you to sleep
    The water's dark and deep, inside this ancient heart
    You'll always be a part of me

    Goodnight my angel, now it's time to dream
    And dream how wonderful your life will be
    Someday your child may cry, and if you sing this lullaby
    Then in your heart there will always be a part of me
    Someday we'll all be gone
    But lullabies go on and on
    They never die
    That's how you and I will be
    Goodnight my angel, time to close your eyes
    And save these questions for another day
    I think I know what you've been asking me
    I think you know what I've been trying to say
    I promised I would never leave you
    Then you should always know
    Wherever you may go, no matter where you are
    I never will be far away

    Goodnight my angel, now it's time to sleep
    And still so many things I want to say
    Remember all the songs you sang for me
    When we went sailing on an emerald bay
    And like a boat out on the ocean
    I'm rocking you to sleep
    The water's dark and deep, inside this ancient heart
    You'll always be a part of me

    Goodnight my angel, now it's time to dream
    And dream how wonderful your life will be
    Someday your child may cry, and if you sing this lullaby
    Then in your heart there will always be a part of me
    Someday we'll all be gone
    But lullabies go on and on
    They never die
    That's how you and I will be
