The London Sessions Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Therapy

Why would I spend the rest of my days unhappy
Why would I spend the rest of this year alone
When I can go therapy
When I can go therapy
When I can go therapy two times a day
Why would I spend the rest of this week so bitter
And all that listening is making you bitter too
When I can go therapy
When I can go therapy
When I can go therapy two times a day

I don't wanna be around me
And I don't blame you if you blocking all my calls
Been no ups since I been sleeping soundly
Most nights I lie awake between two and four
Work is stressing me out
And after all this time
It's still never enough

Why would I spend the rest of my days unhappy
Why would I spend the rest of this year alone
When I can go therapy
When I can go therapy
When I can go therapy two times a day

I care more about what you think
Than I care about the music
When I get cross with you
I'm surprised you care at all
I figure if I had a life time of time left
Well, shame on me if I don't get to use it well
Yea, I'm stressing you out
And at the way is going you need it more than me

Why would I spend the rest of my days unhappy
Why would I spend the rest of this year alone
When I can go therapy
When I can go therapy
When I can go therapy two times a day

Someone help me
Turn around
I'm a victim
Hate the sound of my own voice
Turn it down
And all I do is aggravate ya

Why would I spend the rest of my days so bitter
And all that listening is making you bitter too
When I can go therapy
When I can go therapy
When I can go therapy two times a day

Doubt

You said I'd never be a leader
You said I'd never wear a crown
If I wanted to be someone
I should learn to settle down

(You should know better)
I tell myself
(You'll never go further)
I warn myself
(You'll never be better)
Don't know me that well

I made it to the end
I nearly paid the cost
I lost a lot of friends
I sacrificed a lot
I'd do it all again
'Cause I made it to the top
But I can't keep doubting myself anymore

No!
I can't keep doubting myself

Now you're looking at a leader
Now you're staring at a queen
You said I'll never be someone
But now I'm pulling all the strings

(You should know better)
Won't let me back down
(You'll never go further)
Can't turn me around
(You'll never be better)
So no-one's stopping me now

I made it to the end
I nearly paid the cost
I lost a lot of friends
I sacrificed a lot
I'd do it all again
'Cause I made it to the top
I can't keep doubting myself anymore

No!
I can't keep doubting myself

You think you know
But you don't know the half
You think you beat me down
But I'll have the last laugh
I'll keep getting up
'Cause that's what I'm gonna do
I'm gonna be the best me
Sorry if it kills you

I made it to the end
I nearly paid the cost
I lost a lot of friends
I sacrificed a lot
I'd do it all again
'Cause I made it to the top
But I can't keep doubting myself anymore
No! No!
I can't keep doubting myself anymore

Not Loving You

You're never ever gonna cover up
You'll alway remain
Sat there sipping on another cup
To take it away
It weighs so heavy, so heavy on your heart

So what you gonna do now?
Now that you're falling, you're falling down
There's only so much I can do if you're not loving you

Marching in to try and save the day
And never works out
Always hopeful that I'll make a change
What's that about?
It weighs so heavy, so heavy on my heart

So what you gonna do now?
Now that you're falling, you're falling down
There's only so much I can do if you're not loving you

I love you, I want you to be all that you can
If I could, then I would but you know that I can't
No I can't

So what you gonna do now?
Now that you're falling, you're falling down
There's only so much I can do if you're not loving

What you gonna do?
What you gonna do now?
Now that you're falling, you're falling down
There's only so much I can do if you're not loving you

When You're Gone

Seems like we were right
But you always have a problem with everything
Appreciate your advise but sometimes I have trouble managing
Now that I'm paying attention I see how beautiful you are
But when you spend so much time together now everything can get so dark

Oh when you're gone I'd miss you like I did when we were first together
No one in this world could hold me better
Just tell me when you're coming home
When you're gone I'd miss you like you took a piece of me with you
Didn't think I'd care that much, did ya?
Just tell me when you're coming home

Seems like we were right
But today I woke on the wrong side
I need silence to keep me right
Otherwise the day won't be nice
I wanna laugh with you again just like you are my best friends
But friends can always breathe
And we're too close, and too close is never easy

Oh when you're gone I'd miss you like I did when we were first together
No one in this world could hold me better
Just tell me when you're coming home
When you're gone I'd miss you like you took a piece of me with you
Didn't think I'd care that much, did ya?
Just tell me when you're coming home

I'm not alone
Until you leave me
Now we all get to sleep tonight
Cause you're not here beside me
When you're away it's never easy
You make it all alright, I miss you

When you're gone I'd miss you like I did when we were first together
No one in this world could hold me better
Just tell me when you're coming home
When you're gone I'd miss you like you took a piece of me with you
Didn't think I'd care that much, did ya?
Just tell me when you're coming home

Right Now

You take from me
So why you holding back? Boy, why you holding back?
So vacantly
But you won't get away with that, no, you won't get away with that

They don't see what you do to me
From the outside
This can't be what it used to be
From the outside

I'm telling you right now, I'm telling you right now
No, I won't play this game with you
I'm taking it back now, I'm turning it right round
My love won't be the same for you no more
My love won't be the same for you no more

Don't wait for me
When you know you did me wrong, I've been holding on too long
Eventually
I'll mend the heart

They don't see what you do to me
From the outside
This can't be what it used to be
From the outside

I'm telling you right now, I'm telling you right now
No, I won't play this game with you
I'm taking it back now, I'm turning it right round
My love won't be the same for you no more
My love won't be the same for you no more

No, I won't play this game

No, never gonna give you the time
No, never gonna give you the time
No, never gonna give you the time
No, never gonna give you the time

No, never gonna give you the time
No, never gonna give you the time
No, never gonna give you the time
No, never gonna give you the time

I'm telling you right now, I'm telling you right now
No, I won't play this game with you
I'm taking it back now, I'm turning it right round
My love won't be the same for you no more
My love won't be the same for you no more

My Loving

Tonight, I'm not about to waste no time, for only one night
You don't have to fantasize
I'll be right beside
I can be the girl you like, the one in your dreams
I'll be the one you desire

I'm not saying you go crazy, chasing everybody down
I'm just playing 'cause I know that I'm the best loving around
I'm in heaven every time you lay your body next to me
You're in heaven, you keep coming back 'cause now you're in too deep

Nothing brings the fire
And nothing gets you higher
Ain't nothing as good as my loving, and my loving, and my loving
Now that you surrender
Nobody's gonna get you
A love as good as my loving, and my loving, and my loving
Nothing brings the fire
And nothing gets you higher
Ain't nothing good as my loving, and my loving, and my loving
Now that you surrender
Nobody's gonna get you
A love as good as my loving, and my loving, and

Tonight, you don't need an alibi, it's all in your mind
You just need to close your eyes, I'll let you drive
So think about the other girls but you can't deny
It's what you got is the best love, in the whole wide world

Nothing brings the fire
And nothing gets you higher
Ain't nothing as good as my loving, and my loving, and my loving
Now that you surrender
Nobody's gonna get you
A love as good as my loving, and my loving, and my loving
Nothing brings the fire
And nothing gets you higher
Ain't nothing good as my loving, and my loving, and my loving
Now that you surrender
Nobody's gonna get you
A love as good as my loving, and my loving, and

I'm not saying you go crazy, chasing everybody down
I'm just playing 'cause I know that I'm the best loving around
I'm in heaven everytime you lay your body next to me
You're in heaven, you keep coming back but now you're in too deep

Nothing brings the fire
And nothing gets you higher
Ain't nothing good as my loving, and my loving, and my loving
Now that you surrender
Nobody's gonna get you
A love as good as my loving, and my loving, and

Long Hard Look

Everyday is different
Like every love is different
I say it from the bottom of my heart
well well,
You're my true fantasy, my daily covenant
I swear I'll never bring you harm

Just because you think we lost don't make it true
I know ain't no rules to this game
I'm not gonna give up what we do
Every time you go searching for pain

Take a long hard look
The grass is never greener on the other side (no, no, no)
And every revolution turns a page
Take a long hard look
And it ain't ever greener on the other side (no, no, no)
Every resolution makes a change

Take a long hard look at yourself, look at yourself, look at yourself
Baby, look at us now, look at us now, look at us now, Darlin'

Every life is different
Like every love is different
You never could judge them by another (no, no)
You don't know what you want
So why you throw it away
Even though we were made for eachother

Just because you think we lost don't make it true
I know ain't no rules to this game
I'm not gonna give up what we do
Every time you go searching for pain

Take a long hard look
The grass is never greener on the other side (no, no, no)
And every revolution turns a page
Take a long hard look
And it ain't ever greener on the other side (no, no, no)
Every resolution makes a change

Take a long hard look
The grass is never greener on the other side (no, no, no)
Every revolution turns a page
Take a long hard look
Every resolution makes a change

Take a long hard look at yourself, look at yourself, look at yourself
Baby, look at us now, look at us now, look at us now
Look at yourself, look at yourself, look at yourself
Look at us now, look at us now, look at us now, Darlin'

Whole Damn Year

Tryna find a way to explain this
Why you can't touch me tonight?
I can feel you're getting impatient
But I really can't let you inside
Bad, how deep the pain is
Or you just couldn't believe
And yes I'm good on the surface
But I'm a mess, I'm a mess underneath
See winter took most of my heart
And Spring punched right in the stomach
Summer came looking for blood
And by autumn, I was left with nothing

It took a whole damn year to repair my body
It took a whole damn year
It took a whole damn year to repair my body
It's been about five years
Gon' take a long long year for me to trust somebody
Gon' take long long year
Gon' take a long long year for me to touch somebody
It's been a bad five years

Not tryna do this on purpose
Boy I really wish I could
Don't act like you never heard this
I know you haven't misunderstood
Where the others just wouldn't respect me
Don't tell me you use well
I thought we were heading for Heaven
But you're about to take me back to Hell

See winter took most of my heart
And Spring punched right in the stomach
Summer came looking for blood
And by autumn, I was left with nothing

It took a whole damn year to repair my body
It took a whole damn year
It took a whole damn year to repair my body
It's been about five years
Gon' take a long long year for me to trust somebody
Gon' take long long year
Gon' take a long long year for me to touch somebody
It's been a bad five years

It took a whole damn year to repair my body
It took a whole damn year
It took a whole damn year to repair my body
It's been about five years
Gon' take a long long year for me to trust somebody
Gon' take long long year
Gon' take a long long year for me to touch somebody
It's been a bad five years

Bad to the liver, bad to the bones
Bad to the liver, bad to the bones
Bad to the liver, bad to the bones
It's been a bad five years

Nobody But You

I can't sleep, I'm lonely
If only you're here to lay with me, lay with me
Long days, and longer nights don't feel right
If you're not here by my side, by my side

I'm thinking of running away
Into your arms to a place
Where I know that I'm gonna stay, gonna stay
People with so much to say
But I'm only hearing the words
That you left me with on that day, on that day

Cause I don't really care for
No, I don't really care for
Nobody but you
Nobody but you, baby, no
The only one I'm there for
No, I don't really care for
Nobody but you
Nobody but you, baby

Nobody but you, you, you, you, you, you
Nobody but you, you, you, you, you, you

Lately, I'm faded, it's hazy
Won't you come and clear my mind, clear my mind
I won't be safe tonight
When you're the only comfort in my life, oh, in my life

I'm thinking of running away
Into your arms to a place
Where I know that I'm gonna stay, gonna stay

Cause I don't really care for
No, I don't really care for
Nobody but you
Nobody but you, baby, no
You're the only one I'm there for
The only one I care for
Nobody but you
Nobody but you, baby

Nobody but you, you, you, you, you, you
Nobody but you, you, you, you, you, you

Nobody, nobody baby
Nobody, nobody baby
Nobody, nobody baby, baby, baby

Cause I don't really care for
No, I don't really care for
Nobody but you
Nobody but you, baby, no
You're the only one I'm there for
The only one I care for
Nobody but you
Nobody but you, baby

Nobody but you

Pick Me Up

Pick me up, pilot
Fly me straight to the island
Soon the sun gon' be shining on me

Pick me up, pilot
Fly me straight to the island
Soon the sun gon' be shining on me

It's a jungle, out there is dangerous
And the beast are hungry, got their eyes on us
And the waves are high as the sea is deep
And the sharks gon' look, when they see us we

Pick me up, pilot
Fly me straight to the island
Soon the sun gon' be shining on me

Pick me up, pilot
Fly me straight to the island
Soon the sun gon' be shining on me

It's a battle out there and their guns are big
People colder than you could ever feel
And their hearts are twisted and their spirits are low
Misery loves company they won't let us grow
Misery loves company they won't let us grow
Misery loves company they won't let us grow

Pick me up, pilot
Fly me straight to the island
Soon the sun gon' be shining on me

Get away
We've got to get away
We need to get away
We got to get away, get away, get away

Baby we, been forgetting
We got to get away
Look at what we're accepting
We've got something they just can't see

Pick me up, pilot
Fly me straight to the island
Soon the sun gon' be shining on me

Follow

[Verse 1:]
I don't know who you are
But I clocked you from afar
And the kids on the streets said you're getting it from me

[Pre-Chorus:]
You think you can kick the sand in my eyes
But you should walk a little softer
I hear you coming from a mile away
And you don't have enough to offer
Don't waste your time, playing with my mind
Or you'll regret it
I write the rules, for shame on you
You won't forget it

[Chorus:]
You just follow, follow, follow
But tomorrow, morrow, morrow
When you're hollow, hollow, hollow
You'll be sad and all alone
Sad and all alone
Follow, follow, follow
But tomorrow, morrow, morrow
When the thrill is all that [?]
You'll be sad and all alone
Sad and all alone

[Verse 2:]
You can try to disguise
But you know deep in your heart
They can see in your eyes
That you're vacant in your heart

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]

[Outro x12:]
Give it all or give it nothing
Give it love or give it up

Worth My Time

It's been hard on you, but it's been hard on me
Can't you see my point of view?
And every time we speak
At least be weak
When you're running away 'cause you don't wanna hear what I say
Is it me, is it you, could it all have been a mistake?

But I won't give up
Make it worth my time
We've been in it so long we forgot how it feels to divide
And I wanna stay
And I won't give up if you make it worth my time
We're approaching it wrong and it isn't enough to get by
And I wanna stay

Nobody's fault, but we both feel the pain
It's a shame
And we've talked of change but everything remains just the same
When you're running away 'cause you don't wanna hear what I say
Is it me, is it you, could it all have been a mistake?

But I won't give up
Make it worth my time
We've been in it so long we forgot how it feels to divide
And I wanna stay
And I won't give up if you make it worth my time
We're approaching it wrong and it isn't enough to get by
And I wanna stay

Would you sacrifice who's wrong or right?
Let's stick together now more than ever

I won't give up
Make it worth my time
We've been in it so long we forgot how it feels to divide
And I wanna stay
And I won't give up if you make it worth my time
We're approaching this wrong and it isn't enough to get by
And I wanna stay
