Kehlani – You Should Be Here

 

 

 

I’m looking right at you, but you’re not there
I’m seeing right past you, but you seem well aware
Your body is here but your mind is somewhere else
So far gone and you think I can’t tell
Can’t tell that you are disconnected
You pulled away and I miss your presence
I always said to you

Baby you should be here, right here
Baby you should be here, right here
Don’t know where you went but you’re lost now
Don’t know where you went but you’re gone now
Don’t know where you went but you’re lost now
Don’t know where you went but you’re gone now

Head on your chest babe, but your heart is so quiet
We use to talk all night long, now we laying in silence
Your arms around me but your soul is somewhere else
Gone so long and I know you so well
I know that you are everything that I ever dreamed of
And hoped that love had a happy ending

Baby you should be here, right here
Baby you should be here, right here
Don’t know where you went but you’re lost now
Don’t know where you went but you’re gone now
Don’t know where you went but you’re lost now
Don’t know where you went but you’re gone now
You should be here, right here yeah

Poetry

Phoenix

I have burned myself to the core for the sole purpose of my renewal
and resurrected from the burdens of my past mistakes and decisions.

From these ashes I rise brand new
shedding any remnant of a past me you once knew
She no longer lives here
but her memories serve as lessons for as long as these wings pick up the winds beneath them
Reclaiming a newfound strength that is untouchable
unbreakable
feeding the stomach of her new being
she is nourished with knowledge, love, and light

Soaring to new heights, I am no longer afraid to fall
knowing I will rise once again

Kimbra – Two Way Street

 

 

I feel the four become five
And I’m waiting, waiting, waiting
For you to walk down the boulevard
And to take me, take me, take me

But the moment you appear
You wake me, wake me, wake me
Out of the slumbers of my head
From the slums of loneliness

[Hook]
And there’s no conspiracy
Behind the way two hearts meet
When love is a two way street (Love is a two way street)
And I think I’m ready
To let you get under my skin
I can’t make you fall for me (Love is a two way street)

We’re coming close to our fame
They’ll put a star beside our names
But I couldn’t care for the history
When I’ve got you in front of me

And the cars could all collide
The shards of glass
 won’t catch my eye
Because you’re almost by my side
We’re counting down at the green light

[Hook]

Ariana Grande ft. Macy Gray – Leave Me Lonely

 

 

[Refrain: Macy Gray]
Dangerous love
You’re no good for me, darling
Yeah, you turn me away
Like I’m begging for a dollar
Danger, oh, how you hold me
I get a chill inside
And nothing frightens me, baby, oh

[Verse 1: Ariana Grande]
Is it love when so easily you said goodbye?
Is it love when we’ve given up before we tried?
Is it love when you stole my peace of mind?
Is it love when you cry, and cry and cry?

[Pre-Chorus: Ariana Grande]
So when you walk out that door
Don’t you come back no more
My heart has had enough of the give and take
And as much as I want you to stay

[Chorus 1: Ariana Grande]
You’re a dangerous love
Maybe you’re no good for me, darling
Cause if you’re gonna love me and leave me hanging here
Then I’d rather you leave me lonely
Even though it hurts
Ooh, you’re a dangerous love, oh

[Refrain: Macy Gray]
Dangerous love
You’re no good for me, darling
Yeah, you turn me away
Like I’m begging for a dollar
Danger, oh, how you hold me
I get a chill inside
And nothing frightens me, baby, oh

[Pre-Chorus: Ariana Grande]
So when you walk out that door
Don’t you come back no more
My heart has had enough of the give and take
And as much as I want you to stay

[Chorus 2: Ariana Grande]
You’re a dangerous love
Maybe you’re no good for me, darling
Cause if you’re gonna love me and leave me hanging here
Then I’d rather you leave, leave me lonely
Even though it hurts
You’re a dangerous love, baby

[Refrain: Macy Gray]
Dangerous love
You’re no good for me, darling
Yeah, you turn me away
Like I’m begging for a dollar
Danger, oh, how you hold me
I get a chill inside
And nothing frightens me, baby, oh

Beyoncé – Resentment

 

 

[Verse 1]
I wish I could believe you, then I’d be alright
But now everything you told me really don’t apply to the way I feel inside
Loving you was easy once upon a time
But now my suspicions of you have multiplied
And it’s all because you lied

[Chorus]
I only give you a hard time
Cause I can’t go on and pretend like I haven’t tried to forget this
But I’m much too full of resentment

[Verse 2]
Just can’t seem to get over the way you hurt me
Don’t know how you gave another who didn’t mean a thing
The very thing you gave to me
I thought I could forgive you, and I know you’ve changed
As much as I want to trust you, I know it ain’t the same
And it’s all because you lied

[Chorus]
I only give you a hard time
Cause I can’t go on and pretend like I haven’t tried to forget this
But I’m much too full of resentment

[Bridge]
I may never understand why
I’m doing the best that I can
And I tried, and I tried to forget this
But I’m much too full of resentment

I’ll always remember feeling like I was no good
Like I couldn’t do it for you like your mistress could
And it’s all because you lied
Loved you more than another, more than my own life
But that part of me I gave you, it was sacrificed
And it’s all because you lied

[Chorus]
I only give you a hard time
Cause I can’t go on and pretend like I haven’t tried to forget this
But I’m much too full of resentment

[Outro]
I know she was attractive, but I was here first
Been riding with you for 6 years
Why did I deserve to be treated this way by you?
I know you’re probably thinking, “What’s up with B?”
I been crying for too long, what did you do to me?
I used to be so strong, but now you took my soul
I’m crying, can’t stop crying
Can’t stop crying
You could’ve told me you wasn’t happy
I know you didn’t wanna hurt me
But look what you’ve done to me now
I gotta look at her in her eyes and see she’s had half of me
How could you lie?
