Kelly Z and "the Lot"

 

REASON FOR THE BLUES 

Holding on to heaven ain't easy to do

When the devil comes knocking and he looks like you

You're the only reason I play the fool

 

Holding on to your love is hard and cold

But baby you got me got me down deep in my soul

You're the only reason I never say no

 

Cause you're hard Like candy, sweet like wine

I can't help myself everytime It's true  

You're the only reason I get the blues

 

Crazy comes knocking when it's you I see

I desperately holding on to my fantasy

You're the only reason I can't be free

Cause you're hard Like candy, sweet like wine

I can't help myself everytime It's true  

You're the only reason I get the blues

 

So when crazy comes knocking I'll answer the door

Even though I know I'll be flat on the floor

Your the only reason I ever want more

 

Cause you're hard Like candy, sweet like wine

I can't help myself everytime It's true  

You're the only reason I get the blues

You're the only reason I'm here with you

 

HUSH UP 

Don't give my blues away

You can tell the world that you love me a bunch

You can tell the neighbors that you love my sweet touch

But Baby please don’t you share so much

 

Don't you give Don't you give my blues away

Don't you give Don't you give my blues away

 

You tell everybody that I'm sad inside

You tell everybody the feelings I like to hide

I love you baby but that ain't right

 

Don't you give Don't you give my blues away

Don't you give Don't you give my blues away

 

When I get lonely I'll do what I need

When I get those sad feelings I'll come clean

When I get down, I'll always get up

I think it's time for you to hush up

 

Don't you give my blues away

 

You can tell the world that you love me a bunch

You can tell the neighbors that you love my sweet touch

But Baby please don’t you share so much

 

Don't you give Don't you give my blues away

Don't you give Don't you give my blues away

 

When I get lonely I'll do what I need

When I get those feelings I'll come clean

When I get down, I'll always get up

But I think it's time for you to hush up

 

Don't you give Don't you give my blues away

Don't you give Don't you give my blues away

 

TAKING TIME

 Wake up in the morning I need my coffee nice and strong

Gotta get things going or my day turns out all wrong

Not enough minutes in a day to get things right.

So I keep on going through the wee hours of the night

 

But when I think of you my world slows down

When I think of you it turns me all around

I’m taking time for love

I’m taking time for you

Taking time for love

It makes me happy to love you

 

Gotta set my goals I gotta close up all these deals

I feel my life is running fast down a very steep hill

Crazy stress and deadlines have become my only friends

Gotta stop this madness will this crazy ever end

 

But when I think of you my world slows down

When I think of you it turns me all around

I’m taking time for love

I’m taking precious time for you

Taking time for love

It makes me happy to love you

 

Wake up in the morning I need my coffee nice and strong

Gotta get things going or my day turns out all wrong

 

But when I think of you my world slows down

When I think of you it turns me all around

I’m taking time for love

I’m taking time for you

Taking time for love

It makes me happy to love you

 

REDBONE
Somebody stole my heart away I thought it was you.
Somebody held me tight, it felt like you
Gave my love to the man of my dreams he looked like you
He spoke of always loving me he talked like you

Now I'm standing in the pouring rain got no where to go.
No cover to keep me dry feeling oh so blue.

All I do is I look in your eyes I see it's true
Yes the man who owns my heart used to be you
What happened to you
So if you see that man of mine won't you bring home
But don't you bother knocking on my door if you're alone

Now I'm standing in the pouring rain got nothing to do
No lover to keep me dry I'm feeling oh so blue

He walked through the door and looked at me
Kept on walking straight to me
Grabbed me by the heart held me in his arms
He kissed me wth a passion I never knew
Was it just a dream or was it you

Standing still in the pouring rain waiting for my man
That you used to be when we held hands
When we touched, when we kissed, when we made love that was my man
Standing still in the pouring rain doing the best I can

 

BETTER WAY 

Went down to the store today

Bought me some bricks and a better way

To deal with a man who don't treat me right

Gonna bulid me a wall, build it tall tonight

 

Gotta get out to the yard today

Pick up a shovel and a better way

To deal with a man who likes to stray

Gonna bury my love today

 

No one's gonna hurt me

No one's gonna ever hurt me

No one's gonna hurt me no more

 

Gotta get down to the locksmith today

Get me a safe and a better way

To deal with a man, a three timing man

Gonna lock up my love as tight as I can

 

No one's gonna hurt me

No one's gonna ever hurt me

No one's gonna hurt me no more

 

I need a trip to the river today

Take a vacation it's the only way

To put this man in the past

Gonna close my eyes and never look back.

 

No one's gonna hurt me

No one's gonna ever hurt me

No one's gonna hurt me no more

 

COME TO THIS 
I woke up this morning lying next to you 
My soul was empty, my heart was blue 
I’m always looking up to the sky 
Asking myself how, when and why my life has 
Come To This 

You’re so slick with that remote control 
Surfing up and down your tv shows 
I can’t believe I just sit and stare 
Asking why life is so unfair 
My momma always said I could make it on my own 
But I was too afraid to do it all alone 
I’ve Come To This 

I can’t believe I live today 
With a man who’s got nothing to say 
But pass the salt, pass the milk, pass the bread 
Feed the kids, do the wash, make the bed 
I can’t believe my life has 
Come To This 

Life is funny how it takes you home 
When you find yourself so all alone 
Just be careful you might get your every wish 
Just be careful or your life just might 
Come To This…………….. 

 

TIRED
I’m tired, so tired, tired of being alone
I’m tired, so tired of having no one to call my own
I’m tired, so tired, I’m tired of being alone.

I’m lost, so lost, lost without love in my life
I’m lost, so lost and I don’t see no one in sight
I’m lost without love, lost without love in my life

There was a time I thought I was happy, 
A time I thought I was cool
Running around like nobody business acting like a fool

But I’m lost so lost lost without love in my life
I’m lost and alone and can’t see nobody in sight

I had good love in front of me but I couldn’t see
I was trying so hard to make sure that I was free

I’m blue so blue just wanna find a love that’s true
Cause I’m tired of being lost, I’m tired of being blue So Blue

 

TRAIN 
Gonna ride a train, buy a ticket on a train 
Gonna ride a train as far away as I can do 
It's true 
That I’m stuck between no place and you. 

Gonna ride a bus, get away from us 
Gonna ride that bus as far away as I can do. 
Oh yeah you know it's true 
That I’m stuck between no place and you 

Hey, Hey, Hey 
Hey, Hey 

Gonna walk a mile, five hundred miles 
And every single mile I’ll get farther away from you 
Oh yeah that's what I need to do 
Cause I’m stuck between no place and you 

Hey, Hey, Hey 
Hey, Hey 

Gonna ride a train, buy a ticket on a train 
Gonna ride that train as far away as I can do 
Oh yeah, it's what I need what I need to do 
Cause I’m stuck between no place and you. 

Hey, Hey, Hey 
Hey, Hey 
Hey, Hey, Hey 
Hey, Hey, Hey 

 

RIGHT NOW

Right Now I'm going to take a leap of faith

Right Now I'm going to find the words to say

That I love you more each day

 

Tonight I'm going to open up my soul

Tonight I'm going to let everybody know

That nothing’s going make me turn around and go

 

It's got me this time

It shook me this time

It found me this time

Grabbed a hold of me this time

NOBODY HERE BUT ME
I've walked these streets so many times, I've paid my dues, I got some fines
Cried a river over spilt milk, I did a lot of things that left some guilt
And I tried to blame those years before, but I know that I closed every door
I know it’s me that’s brings me down, It’s my noise that makes that sound

Aint nobody here, aint nobdy here, aint nobody here but me

You know sometimes it’s hard to get fresh air when disappointment lives in the air
It’s hard to breath on those smoggy days but only I can make it go away
And I tried and I’ve tried but I must confide, it’s so much easier to run and hide
But pulling the covers over my head is like one step away from being dead

Aint nobody here, aint nobdy here, aint nobody here but me

Nobody here but me baby……Nobody here but..
I got my family, my friends and family but still aint nobody here but me.

So I walk down that bumpy road there's times I carry a heavy load
But that’s the way life's meant to be and only I can set me free 
My strength is there just not always that strong but I’ll get there no matter how long 
It takes to be the girl I was you know the girl I am I am because

Aint nobody here, aint nobdy here, aint nobody here but me
Nobody here but me baby………………………….

I got my family, my friends and family but still aint nobody here but me.

EXTRA VERSE
I’ve got so much water under my bridge It’s hard to remember being that kid
That looked at life through a crystal ball And climbed every tree after taking a fall 
I know she’s there I can feel her smile she comes alive inside of me every once in a while 
It’s time to bring her home to stay cause that’s the only way

 

HAPPY GIRL 
Baby take a look at me it's not hard to see 
That I'm a happy girl 
Well I lost at love my whole life long 
But I ain't singing no sad songs 
Cause I've been around this cold dark world 
And I'm still a happy, I'm a happy girl 

You're always talking to the others don't mind me baby I'm just another 
Oh And if you see me crying crying just ignore me baby cause I'm not lying 
Cause I've been around this cold dark world 
I've always been a happy I'm a happy girl 
I'm a happy I'm a happy girl 

You stayed with me for just awhile and I gave you every smile 
And I know that you're leaving me but you won't be hurting me 
Cause I don't really care I know that all is fair in love and war and all we do 
Baby I can, Baby I can, Baby I can smile without you. 

So don't mind these tears running down, running down, running down, 
running down, running down, they're running down my face 
Well it's just your smile it broke my heart when you said it's best that we're apart 
Well I guess it's back to the cold dark world 
It's my place 
Got to put on a face 
And be a happy, be a happy girl 
Cause I'm a happy, I'm happy Girl 
Cause I'm a happy, I'm happy Girl 
I'm a happy I'm happy Girl 
Baby I can, Baby I can, Baby I can smile without you
