Ashanti - Ashanti Lyrics






Intro

2008, It's been about 4 years now
I've been through a lot
I've experienced life
I've experienced death
I felt pain I never felt before

I've been on top
I've experienced not being on top
So when they ask me
What am I declaring?
I'm declaring me
I am...the declaration.

Foolish

Murder Inc.
Ashanti

See, my days are cold without you
But I'm hurting while I'm with you
And though my heart can't take no more
I keep on running back to you
See, my days are cold without you
But I'm hurting while I'm with you
And though my heart can't take no more
I keep on running back to you

Baby, I don't know why you're treating me so bad (treat me so bad)
You said you love me, no one above me and I was all you had (all you had)
And though my heart is beating for you, I can't stop crying
I don't know how I allow you to treat me this way and still I stay

See, my days are cold without you (without you)
But I'm hurting while I'm with you (oh, oh)
And though my heart can't take no more
I keep on running back to you (keep on running back to you)
See, my days are cold without you (without you)
But I'm hurting while I'm with you
And though my heart can't take no more
I keep on running back to you

Baby, I don't know why you wanna do me wrong (do me wrong)
See when I'm home, I'm all alone and you are always gone (always gone)
And boy, you know I really love you, I can't deny
I can't see how you could bring me to so many tears after all these years

See, my days are cold without you (my days, yeah)
But I'm hurting while I'm with you
And though my heart can't take no more (no more, no more)
I keep on running back to you
See, my days are cold without you (without you)
But I'm hurting while I'm with you (without you)
And though my heart can't take no more
I keep on running back to you (I keep on running back to you)

Ooh, I trusted you, I trusted you
So sad, so sad what love will make you do
All the things that we accept
Be the things that we regret
So all of my ladies (ladies)
Feel me, come on, sing with me

See, when I get the strength to leave
You always tell me that you need me
And I'm weak 'cause I believe you
And I'm mad because I love you
So I stop and think that maybe
You can learn to appreciate me
Then it all remains the same
That you ain't never gonna change
Never gonna change, never gonna change

See, my days are cold without you (my days are cold, baby)
But I'm hurting while I'm with you
And though my heart can't take no more (no more, no more)
I keep on running back to you
See, my days are cold without you (without you)
But I'm hurting while I'm with you
And though my heart can't take no more (no more, no more)
I keep on running back to you

Baby, why you hurt me, leave me and desert me?
Boy, I gave you all my heart and all you did was tear it up
Looking out my window, knowing that I should go
Even when I pack my bags, there's something always holding me back

Leaving (Always on Time Part II)

If you were me, what would you do?
Always a lie and never the truth
Now as for me, I'm moving on
You'll always be my baby

Baby, I just gotta let you go for now
Thought I could take it for a while
Maybe you'll make it back around
Baby, I just gotta live my life for now
Can't see me changing for a while
Hope I can make it back around

Anything that I want, I can get it, boy
You know you turn me on and on
That's why I switch my frame of mind
Of being there when you call, always on time
I'm looking to spread my wings and party
Everything and for everybody
Need my space, my time alone
It's like our hearts don't match no more
Still everything that you want, you can get it, boy
You know I still got love for you
In court I'll plead the fifth, my baby (baby)

Baby, I just gotta let you go for now
Thought I could take it for a while
Maybe you'll make it back around
Baby, I just gotta live my life for now
Can't see me changing for a while
Hope I can make it back around

When you was cheating, you was probably thinking
I won't sense a thing
But love got a funny way of catching up to lies
And your lies can't look me straight in the eyes
I'm not surprised that you would hurt me, baby
Though why me, baby?
Just let me breathe
And I'll fly freely

If you were me, what would you do?
Always a lie and never the truth
Now as for me, I'm moving on
You'll always be my baby

Baby, I just gotta let you go for now
Thought I could take it for a while
Maybe you'll make it back around
Baby, I just gotta live my life for now
Can't see me changing for a while
Hope I can make it back around

Yo, yo, why in the world would you wanna leave me, girl?
Is there something out there
That you feel is better than what's here at home?
And I know a bitch can do bad on her own
You're not alone, the way you hurt me, baby
Shit, why me, baby?
I feel your pain a little, but I know that love is real
And as long as I let you go that you feel
The need to come back to me, baby
Who else gon' hold you and sex you crazy?
R-U-L-E
Come on back, holla at me, baby

Baby, I just gotta let you go for now
Thought I could take it for a while
Maybe you'll make it back around
Baby, I just gotta live my life for now
Can't see me changing for a while
Hope I can make it back around
Baby, I just gotta let you go for now
Thought I could take it for a while
Maybe you'll make it back around
Baby, I just gotta live my life for now
Can't see me changing for a while
Hope I can make it back around

If you were me, what would you do?
Always a lie and never the truth
Now as for me, I'm moving on
You'll always be my baby

Narrative Call (Skit)

Me and this guy had a
Real strange relationship
It's like we had some kind
Of power over each
Other
I remember this one time
He called me
It had to be like, four in the mornin'
Pourin' rain outside
And I was "knocked out"
But it was like when I heard his voice
Somethin' got me out of bed
And I had to come to him
And it was like
"Whenever you call, I came runnin' "

[Irv Gotti]

We sitting here man
Digging on each other I'm feeling the shit out of you
You feeling the shit out of me

[Verse 1]
It was around 11:30 when I realized I miss you,
sitting at home all alone thinking what did I
just do, feeling was strong coming on and I knew I wanted you,
something inside me held me back,

[Chorus 2x]
You got me afraid to let my love go.
Is it my heart that I should follow.
Got me afraid to let myself go.
Got me scared of you.
[Irv Gotti]
See,see what what it's like it's like we got to get over this hump ma
until we get over this hump, it's going to be f*cked up!
[Verse 2]
If I let go I don't know if my heart will remain strong
cause you the type that just might give
right and get me strong I couldn't be just a girl
that your're seeing once a month cause if it
goes down better believe I'm gonna be your only one
[Chorus 2x]
[Bridge 2x]
Should I let it go,
Should I let it go no no no no
Should I let it go,
Should I let it go no no

Rescue

You still scared, I'll be scared too, it's cool though just holla back aight.

[Verse 1]
All alone and I'm feeling wanted
Try to wait but my body's calling, you're the one so why don't
You come and rescue me,
I'll be here while you on your way, counting down till I see your face,
Hurry up cause I love the way you rescue me.
Now your're here, come on out, the rain soaking wet
Body glistening, finally we could do something so rescue me,
Can't believe how it's going down,
I'm so obsessed with this love I found it got my head spinning
Round and round just rescue me.

[Chorus]
All night long Take me away to another place,
Rescue me save me, save me save me all night long
Take me away to another place rescue me
Save me, save me, save me

[Verse 2]
I come alive when I feel your touch
And I can drown In this pool of love, you could get what I'm thinking of
Come rescue me, what you think couldn't be replaced
If you were gone I would find a way to get you back,
Cause I love the way you rescue me, laying here with you in the dark
I always knew you could shift my heart,
When I'm with you I don't want to stop so rescue me,
Only you can fulfill my need take me away from this agony,
I want to live out my fantasy just rescue me.

Baby

I don't remember feeling like this
Baby, baby I love you, baby, baby I love you.

I got this jones forming in my bones (from a man)
Who indeed took over my soul, (understand)
I couldn't breathe if he ever said (he would leave),
Get on my knees till they bloody red, (baby please)
See I don't know if you get it yet, (just don't know)
He's like the lighter to my cigarette,
(Watch me smoke), I never knew another human life
(Didn't know) can have the power to take over mine,
So baby baby.

[Chorus]
Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby,(baby I love you) baby,
Baby,baby baby,baby, I love it when I hear
Ya name, got me sayin' baby, baby, baby,
Baby, baby,(baby I love you) baby, baby, baby, baby, baby.

See, I could never feel alone with you (in my life),
I gave up everything I own for you (won't
Think twice), almost a shame how I'm mesmerized (such a shame),
I loose my thought looking in your eyes (I know why)
Because your kisses make my lips quiver and (that's real) and when you
Touch me my whole body shivers. (I can feel) now,
I can see how another life(nother life)could
Have the power to take over mine cause your my.

[Chorus: x2]


Baby, I can't see my worth (I can't see) living here on
God's green earth, you don't know what
You've done to me, (done to me) I never thought
I'd need you desperately,(desperately) it's kind
Of sick how I'm stuck on you(stuck on you)
But I don't care cause I'm needing you (I'm needing you)
And how I feel will remain the same (remains the same)
'Cause you're my baby, (cause your my baby)
Listen and when the world starts to stress me out,
(Where I run) it's to you boy without
A doubt (you're the one) who keeps me sane and I can't complain
(Can't complain) you're like a
Drug you relieve my pain (may seem strange)
You're like the blood flowing through my vain, (oooo)
Keeps me alive and feeding my brain,
(oooo) now this is how another human life (nother life) could
Have the power to take over mine cause your my

VooDoo

[Phone Ringing]
What's up you've reached Ashanti leave me a numeric message or a
voice message and I'll get back to you lata [beep]
Hey girl what's up it's me, yo man remember
your friend and I've been calling you for the past three weeks
you've never returned any of my
calls, what happened I thought I was going to see you
at the spot last night yo everybody's
askin' for you, and you know who be looking for you like crazy,
man what's going on, what's come
over you?
[Chorus]
I don't know whats come over me I don't know,
I don't know whats come over me, I don't know
whats come over me, I don't know I don't know whats come over me
[Verse 1]
Because I never felt like this, (I don't want to be wrong cause I like it)
thinking about the way you kiss,
(I don't want to be wrong but I like it)
I think you stole my heart from me, (See I don't want to be wrong cause I like it)
Cause I belong to somebody (even though it seems wrong I
can't fight it)it almost feels as if I'm not myself,
Under a spell from someone else I think
I'm falling for somebody else and I can't control myself
it's like some kind of hex is on me
controlling who I love and how I speak
and when it's gone my heart won't beat tell me whats come
over me.
[Chorus]
[Verse 2]
Because I never felt like this, (I don't want to be wrong cause I like it)
thinking about the way you kiss,
(I don't want to be wrong but I like it)
You got me thinking I should leave, (see I don't want to be wrong cause I like it).
But I belong to somebody (even though it seems wrong I can't fight it)
I know that I already have a love, he's all I know and all I trust but lately
I've been falling out of love I find myself so deep in lust
and every time he's here with me I
look into his eyes so desperately but now it's not his face I see,
tell me what comes over me
[Chorus]
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
(I just don't know) I don't know (what's come over me),
I don't know, I don't know , I don't know, I don't know, I don't
know, (it's like something is taking complete control over me)
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know, I don't know, I don't know,
( I can't function I'm not me) I don't know, I don't
know, I don't know what's come over me, I don't know, I don't know
What's come over me, I don't
know what's come over me, I don't know, I don't know,
What's come over me, I don't know, I don't
know what's come over me...

Movies

[Verse 1:]
Looking in the mirror I can see myself standing in your
Arms holding me and kissing me and loving me, oooh
You just can't get enough of me now I'm on the phone telling
You I'm all alone so come on over I'm out the shower now,
About to oil down I can't wait till you get here.

[Chorus: x2]
I wanna be like those girls in the movies,
To have a man so in love it makes him drop to his
Knees she's even on his mind while he's asleep at night
Cause that's the feeling you've given me.

[Verse 2:]
I'm almost ready to accept the truth I'm in love with you
And I wanna tell you I'm glad that
You're here, uh and now we're face to face in the candlelight,
I'm watching your eyes watching
Mine layin here with you, feel so good, feel so good.
With your hand in mine we don't have to
Worry about time, or what the future brings
We can just let it be the way you smile
At me I already see you don't wanna leave so we can just
Sit back, relax and let it move naturally.

[Chorus x4]

Yeah that's the feeling Baby... Baby

Over

[Chorus 2x]
Can't believe that it's over baby
But every bruise on my heart you gave me
See we tried but we fight then we cried now it's over babe it's over babe.
[Verse 1]
When I met you I knew you would be the one,
for me cause looking at you made me feel kind of
crazy, now what you asked I almost did it automatically
but it was nothing compared to the joy you gave me.
Although I know that what we had it wasn't perfect babe,
you fooled around, but see back then it didn't phase me
I thought by staying, trying to change you would be worth it babe,
but now I see that trying to change you only changed me.
All these tears,and all of your lies
all these years and now we're saying goodbye, it's over babe.
[Chorus 2x]
[Verse 2]
Now I'm thinking that I never should have dealt with you,
all this screaming and this yelling
that we go through raining late at night I'm sitting waiting up for you
just to tell you how I hate who you turned into,
see ain't no way I'm gonna sit and take this shit from you,
I'm never playing another day of being your fool,
I wasted all my time on something that just wasn't true,
I should have known I could never ever change you.
All these tears, and all of your lies,
all these years and now we're saying goodbye it's over babe.
[Chorus 2x]
I'll never forget what you did to me so I'm gone I'm leaving leaving baby,
I'll never forget
what you did to me so I'm gone I'm leaving leaving baby.
Whenever you see me don't even speak,
I'll never forget what you did to me.
Whenever you see me don't even speak, I'll never forget what you did to me.
[Chorus 4x]
I'll never forget what you did to me so I'm gone I'm leaving, leaving baby.
I'll never forget
what you did to me so I'm gone I'm leaving, leaving baby.

Unfoolish

See my days are cold without you (Here's Another one)
But I'm hurting while I'm with you (And another one)
And though my heart can't take no more
I can't keep running back to you
See my days are cold without you (Here's Another one)
But I'm hurting while I'm with you (And another one)
And though my heart can't take no more
I won't keep running back to you
(And another one, what? what?)

I think I found my strength to finally get up and leave
No more broken heart for me
No more tellin' your lies to me (And another one)
I'm lookin' like I got my head on right so now I see
No more givin' you everything
There's no more takin' my love from me (what)

See my days are cold without you (Here's Another one)

But I'm hurting while I'm with you (And another one)
And though my heart can't take no more
I won't keep running back to you
(And another one, what? what?)

Glad to wake up every day without you on my brain
No more waiting late up at night
No more havin' to fuzz and fight
I'm proud to say that I will never make the same mistake
No more thinkin' about what you do
There's no more of me runnin' back to you

See my days are cold without you (Here's Another one)
But I'm hurting while I'm with you (And another one)
And though my heart can't take no more
I can't keep running back to you
See my days are cold without you (Here's Another one)

Biggie
Some say the x make the sex spec-tacular
Let me lick you from yo neck to yo back
Then ya, shiverin', tongue deliverin'
Chills up that spine, that ass is mine
Skip the wine and the candlelight, no Cristal tonight
If its alright wit' you, we f*ckin' (that's cool)
Deja vu, the blunts sparked, finger f*ckin' in the park
Pissy off Bacardi Dark
Remember when I used to play between yo legs
You begged for me to stop because you know where it would head
Straight to yo mother's bed
At the Mariott, we be lucky if we find a spot next to yo sister
Damn I really miss the way she used to rub my back when I hit that
Way she used to giggle when yo ass would wiggle
Now I know you used to sweets at the Parker Meridian
Trips to the Caribbean
But tonight, no ends

You must be used to me cryin' (And another one)
While you're out bumpin' and grindin
But I'm leaving you tonight

See my days are cold without you
But I'm hurting while I'm with you
And though my heart can't take no more
I can't keep running back to you
You must be used to me cryin' (And another one)
While you're out bumpin' and grindin'
But I'm leaving you tonight (And another one)

From what it is you wanna to do
You should always go with what you love
Don't follow no one else just do whats good for you, tell them
[Chorus 2x]
[Verse 2]
Sometimes people try to bring you down
They wanna see you frown just keep your faith in you,
doesn't matter if they try to tell you that you'll
Never make it this is what you do, tell them
[Chorus 2x]
Tell them
[Chorus 5x]
[Children]
I believe in myself and my dreams will come true
