(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Grenade

Easy come, Easy go
That's just how you live
Oh, take, take, take it all
But you never give
Should have known you was trouble
From the first kiss
Had your eyes wide open
Why were they open?

Gave you all I had
And you tossed it in the trash
You tossed it in the trash, you did
To give me all your love is all I ever asked
'Cause what you don't understand, is

I'll catch a grenade for ya
Throw my hand on a blade for ya
I'll jump in front of a train for ya
You know I'll do anything for ya
Oh, oh I would go through all this pain
Take a bullet straight through my brain
Yes I would die for ya baby
But you won't do the same
No, no, no, no, oh

Black, black
Black and blue
Beat me till I'm numb
Tell the devil I said hey
When you get back to where you're from
Bad women, mad women
That's just what you are
Yeah you'll smile in my face
Then rip the breaks out my car

Gave you all I had
And you tossed it in the trash
You tossed it in the trash, yes you did
To give me all your love is all I ever asked
'Cause what you don't understand is

I'll catch a grenade for ya
Throw my hand on the blade for ya
I'll jump in front of a train for ya
You know I'll do anything for ya
Oh, oh I would go through all this pain
Take a bullet straight through my brain
Yes I would die for ya baby
But you won't do the same

If my body was on fire
Ooh you'd watch me burn down in flames
You said you loved me, you're a liar
'Cause you never, ever, ever did baby

But darling I'll still catch a grenade for ya
Throw my hand on the blade for ya
I'll jump in front of a train for ya
You know I'll do anything for ya
Ooh, ooh I would go through all this pain
Take a bullet straight through my brain
Yes I would die for ya baby
But you won't do the same

No you won't do the same
You wouldn't do the same
Ooh you'd never do the same
No, no, no, no, oh

Just The Way You Are

Oh her eyes, her eyes
Make the stars look like they're not shining
Her hair, her hair
Falls perfectly without her trying

She's so beautiful
And I tell her every day

Yeah I know, I know
When I compliment her
She won't believe me
And it's so, it's so
Sad to think she don't see what I see

But every time she asks me do I look okay
I say

When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
Cause you're amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
Cause girl you're amazing
Just the way you are

Her lips, her lips,
I could kiss them all day if she'd let me
Her laugh, her laugh
She hates but I think it's so sexy

She's so beautiful
And I tell her every day

Oh you know, you know, you know
Id never ask you to change
If perfect is what you're searching for
Then just stay the same

So don't even bother asking
If you look okay
You know I say

When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
Cause you're amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
Cause girl you're amazing
Just the way you are

The way you are
The way you are
Girl you're amazing
Just the way you are

When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
Cause you're amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
Cause girl you're amazing
Just the way you are
Yeah-eah

Our First Time

[Verse 1:]
Girl here we are, in this big ol empty room
Staring at ya, who's gonna make the first move
Been doing our thing for a minute
But now that our hearts are in it
The only place to go, is all the way (ah, hmm)

You don't need to be nervous (no baby)
Cause I, got, you, all, night
Don't you worry bout a thing babe, just

Just Go with it, go with it, go with it (I will go real)
Slow with it, slow with it

Slow with it, slow with it

And I wanna make it right for you

[Verse 2:]
Clothes are not required, for what we got planned
Ooo girl you're my desire, your wish is my demand
Treat you like a princess, oh girl you're so delicious
Like ice cream on a summer day gonna eat you
Before you melt away

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]
We can go slow (we can go slow)
We can go fast (we can go fast)
All you gotta do is ask me girl (ask me girl)

Our bodies are yearning (bodies are yearning)

Runaway Baby

Ooohhhhhh oh

So easy to forget
All of the little things we do.
Like callin' for no reason
Just to say the words: "Baby, I love you."
I know lately (lately)
I've been busy (busy)
But a second doesn't go by without you crossin' my mind.
It's been so long (so long)
Since we had time (had time)
Let's take a day and make everything right
Just take my hand, fall in love with me again

Let's runaway to the place, where love first found us.
Let's runaway for the day, don't need anyone around us.
When everything in love gets so complicated
It only takes a day to change it
What I have to say, can't wait
All I need is a day,
So let's runaway.
(Let's runaway, just for the day)
Runaway
Runaway

Girl, you've been so patient
Spendin' nights alone and not complainin'
But I'll make it up to you
And I promise today
I won't keep you waitin'. (oh-oh-oh)
Please give me (oh-oh-oh) this one chance
To remind you of everything we have
I won't give up
I'm too much in love
And I want you to know that.
Just take my hand, fall in love with me again

Let's runaway to the place, where love first found us.
Let's runaway for the day, don't need anyone around us. (oh-oh-oh)
When everything in love gets so complicated
It only takes a day to change it.
What I have to say can't wait
All I need is a day.

So let's runaway for the day!
And I'll give everything in this moment.
And I promise to make, everyday just like today

Let's runaway to the place, where love first found us.
Let's runaway for the day, don't need anyone around us. (oh-oh-oh)
When everything in love gets so complicated
It only takes a day to change it.
What I have to say can't wait,
All I need is a day,
So let's runaway.

The Lazy Song

Today I don't feel like doing anything
I just wanna lay in my bed
Don't feel like picking up my phone
So leave a message at the tone
Cus today I swear I'm not doing anything

I'm gonna kick my feet up and stare at the fan
Turn the TV on
Throw my hand in my pants
Nobodys gon' tell me I can't

I'll be lying on the couch just chillin in my snuggie
Click to MTV so they can teach me how to dougie
Cus in my castle I'm the freakin man
Oh Oh

Yes I said it

Today I don't feel like doing anything

And she's gonna sream out 'this is great' (Oh my god, this is great)

I bet my old mam would be so proud of me

But sorry paps you'll just have to wait
Oh Oh

Talking To The Moon

I know you're somewhere out there
Somewhere far away
I want you back
I want you back
My neighbors think
I'm crazy
But they don't understand
You're all I have
You're all I have

[Chorus:]
At night when the stars
Light up my room
I sit by myself
Talking to the Moon
Try to get to You
In hopes you're on
The other side
Talking to me too
Or am I a fool
Who sits alone
Talking to the moon

I'm feeling like I'm famous
The talk of the town
They say
I've gone mad
Yeah
I've gone mad
But they don't know
What I know

Cause when the
Sund goes down
Someone's talking back
Yeah
They're talking back

[Chorus:]
At night when the stars
Light up my room
I sit by myself
Talking to the Moon
Try to get to You
In hopes you're on
The other side
Talking to me too
Or am I a fool
Who sits alone
Talking to the moon

Do you ever hear me calling?
Cause every night
I'm talking to the moon
Still trying to get to you

In hopes you're on
The other side
Talking to me too
Or am I a fool
Who sits alone
Talking to the moon

I know you're somewhere out there
Somewhere far away

Liquor Store Blues

[Verse 1:]
Standing at this liquor store,
Whisky coming through my pores, Feeling like I run this whole block.
Lotto tickets and cheap beer That's why you can catch me here, Tryna scratch my way up to the top.

[Hook:]
Because my job got me going nowhere, so I ain't got a thing to lose.
Take me to a place where I don't care, this is me and my liquor store blues.

[Chorus:]
I'll take one shot for my pain, One drag for my sorrow.
Get messed up today, I'll be ok tomorrow.
One shot for my pain, One drag for my sorrow. Get messed up today, I'll be ok tomorrow.

[Verse 2:]
Me and my guitar tonight, singing to the city lights, tryna live on more than what I got.
Cause '68 Citrus ain't gonna pay the rent, so I'll be out here til they call the cops.

[Hook:]
Because my job got me going nowhere, so I ain't got a thing to lose.
Take me to a place where I don't care, this is me and my liquor store blues.

[Chorus:]
I'll take one shot for my pain, One drag for my sorrow.
Get messed up today, I'll be ok tomorrow.
One shot for my pain, One drag for my sorrow.
Get messed up today, I'll be ok tomorrow.

[Verse 3: Damian Marley]

[Chorus:]
Give me this one shot for my pain, One drag for my sorrow. Get messed up today, I'll be ok tomorrow. One shot for my pain, One drag for my sorrow. Get messed up today, I'll be ok tomorrow.

The Other Side

Truth of the matter is I'm complicated
You're as straight as they come
You go 'bout your day baby
While I had from the sun

It's better if you don't understand
Cause you won't know what it's like
Til you try

[Chorus:]
You know I've been waiting on the other side
And you, all you gotta do is cross the line
I could wait a whole life time
But you just gotta decide
You know I
I've been waiting on the other, waiting on the other side

We would live forever
Who could ask for more
You could die if you wanted
But baby what for

It's better if you don't understand
And you won't know what it's like
Til you try

[Chorus]

If they say life's a dream
Call this insomnia
Cause this ain't Wonderland
It damn sure ain't Narnia
And once you cross the line
You can't change your mind
Yeah I'm a monster
But I'm no Frankenstein
And quite frankly
I've been feeling insane in between my eyes
I really can't explain what I feel inside
If you knew what I was you's would run and hide
Many have tried to go into the night
Cross over the line and come back alive
But that's the price we pay when we living on the other side

[Chorus]

It's better if you don't understand
It's better if you don't understand
It's better if you don't understand
It's better if you don't understand
It's better if you don't understand
It's better if you don't understand

Just The Way You Are (Remix)

[Intro: Lupe Fiasco]
First rule, never let em change you
Rule two, do you to the fullest
And never be ashamed to
Your just good at what they can't do
And they hate that, they wanna paint you
In they color, put you on another
But what they don't accept, and what they don't see
The best thing is what you already be

[Bruno Mars:]
Oh her eyes, her eyes
Make the stars look like they're not shining
Her hair, her hair
Falls perfectly without her trying

She's so beautiful
And I tell her every day

Yeah I know, I know
When I compliment her
She won't believe me
And it's so, it's so
Sad to think she don't see what I see

But every time she asks me do I look okay
I say

When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
Cause you're amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
Cause girl you're amazing
Just the way you are

Her lips, her lips
I could kiss them all day if she'd let me
Her laugh, her laugh
She hates but I think it's so sexy

She's so beautiful
And I tell her every day

Oh you know, you know, you know
I'd never ask you to change
If perfect is what you're searching for
Then just stay the same

So don't even bother asking
If you look okay
You know I'll say

When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
Cause you're amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
Cause girl you're amazing
Just the way you are

[Lupe Fiasco:]
Uh yeah
The definition of real is
If you don't feel then you don't you feel it
Don't conceal it, don't be fair
You look great only silicon will bill it
A botox to kill it
You just killin off spirit
And you the one that you gotta live with
So don't get caught up in appearance
And see the inner beauty
When you look off in the mirrors

[Bruno Mars:]
The way you are
The way you are
Girl you're amazing
Just the way you are

When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
Cause you're amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
Cause girl you're amazing
Just the way you are

Somewhere In Brooklyn

[Chorus:]
She was covered in leather and gold, 21 years old
I lost her in the cold
It's unfair, she's out there
Somewhere, somewhere, somewhere in Brooklyn
She's somewhere, somewhere, somewhere in Brooklyn

[Verse 1:]
Little miss perfect sitting at the train stop
Red nike high tops listening to hip-hop
While we were waiting started conversating
Before I got her name along came a train

... next stop Brooklyn

Now I'm lookin'

[Chorus:]
She was covered in leather and gold, 21 years old
I lost her in the cold
It's unfair, she's out there
Somewhere, somewhere, somewhere in Brooklyn
She's somewhere, somewhere, somewhere in Brooklyn

[Verse 2:]
On the street kickin' rocks circling the same block
Green farm flatbush
Checking every corner shop
Tappin' people's shoulders askin if they know her
Everyday's the same back to the train

... next stop Brooklyn

[Chorus:]
She was covered in leather and gold, 21 years old
I lost her in the cold
It's unfair, she's out there
Somewhere, somewhere, somewhere in Brooklyn
She's somewhere, somewhere, somewhere in Brooklyn

Ohhh Ohh Oh Oh Ohhh
I wonder if we'll ever meet again
Ohhh Ohh Oh Oh Ohhh
I wonder we we'll ever meet again
Yeahh...
I wonder if we'll meet again
I hope we do somewhere in Brooklyn
