Tenderly

Smile, He said, He took my hands
He led me to the dance floor,
He held me close, he never let go
People would always talk, He reminded me
Never let them get into your head

As we swayed to the jazz
He kissed my temple
Forever yours, He told me
Together forever I replied him
My heart leapt for joy

In that moment, it was bliss
It was my safe haven
He was mine and I was his
And together we would grow old

Fast forward to today
Here I sit in my rocking chair
Tenderly playing in the background,
Memories like a kaleidoscope rush back
My first, My last, He was

Forever I did get,
Old and wrinkled I smile to myself
He may be gone for a while
But in Heaven would I meet him

Nostalgia

Do you remember the first time you loved,
Was it everything you wished it would be?

Do you remember the first time you laughed,
Did your tummy hurt too?

Do you remember the nights you stayed up,
and cried over a loved one?

Do you remember your first love,
Is it true you never forget them?

Do you remember your first pair of heels,
Did you ever want to take them off?

Do you remember your first pet,
Did you give them your all?

Do you remember your first doll,
Does she still have a head?

Do you remember your first sport,
Did you ever commit?

Do you remember your childhood friends?
old friends are precious

Do you remember the first time you said 'I love you'
Did you get butterflies in your tummy?

Do you remember who you used to be,
Are you still that person?

Do you remember where you came from,
Do you know where you're going?

Somethings you never forget, no matter how long...

Behind the Mask

Take off your mask,
Show me who you truly are
Let me in
What are you so afraid of?

Don't shade your eyes from me
Are you scared I'd take one look in them
And know everything you so desperately tried to hide?

Who lies behind the perfectly carved mask?
Are you shy?
Are you sad?
Are you hurt?
When the mask comes off, who are you?

Take off your mask

Phenomenal Woman


Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It's the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can't touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can't see.
I say,
It's in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I'm a woman

Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Now you understand
Just why my head's not bowed.
I don't shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It's in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
'Cause I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Still I Rise


You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I'll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
'Cause I walk like I've got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I'll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries.

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don't you take it awful hard
'Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines
Diggin' in my own back yard.

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I'll rise.

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I've got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?

Out of the huts of history's shame
I rise
Up from a past that's rooted in pain
I rise
I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that's wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise.

Loving you isn't the right thing to do
How can I ever change things that I feel?
If I could maybe I'd give you my world
How can I when you won't take it from me?

Non, Je ne regrette rien

Non... rien de rien
Non je ne regrette rien
Ni le bien... qu'on m'a fait
Ni le mal, tout ça m'est bien égale...

Non... rien de rien
Non... je ne regrette rien
C'est payé, balayé, oublié
Je me fous du passé...

Avec mes souvenirs
J'ai allumé le feu
Mes chagrins, mes plaisirs
Je n'ai plus besoin d'eux

Balayées les amours
Avec leurs trémolos
Balayés pour toujours
Je repars à zéro

Non... rien de rien
Non... je ne regrette rien
Ni le bien, qu'on m'a fait
Ni le mal, tout ça m'est bien égale

Non, rien de rien
Non... je ne regrette rien
Car ma vie... car mes joies...
Aujourd'hui... ça commence avec toi...


How Can You Miss What Was Never Yours In The First Place?

The Affair

The stolen kisses, The stolen glances,
The stolen moments
Could I ever give that up?
The guilty trips, the guilty pleasure
The thrill in the sin
The forbidden act, the temptations
Should I give that up?
I never wanted something so much
But that's human nature right?
To want what you can't have
And every time I try to leave
Something always brings me back to you

Fitz and Olivia: The Very Best

This is so beautiful *sigh*
