Let Me Go! 03:36
Let Me Go... Pretty baby I loved you at first sight I denied that something was not right I heard a rumor spreading around town That you were out there sleepin' around All my friends told to break away But I'm always lookin' for a better way Just my luck the rumors are true The sad thing is I'd still wanna be with you Let me go! Can't you see that I want to be set free? Let me go! But I can't break the spell you got over me Let me go! I'm swimmin' in a river of self doubt Let me go! Caught in a trap with no way to get out When i'm with you, you tell me that you need space When i leave, you say i'm never around you only want me when you need a little pick me up then you tell me that I'm bringing you down You got my head spinnin', goin' topsy turvy You really know how to make me feel unworthy One day I'll get the nerve and you'll see I'm gonna leave you behind, but i can't get you out of my mind Let me go! Can't you see that I want to be set free? Let me go! But I can't break the spell you got over me Let me go! I swimmin' in a river of self doubt Let me go! I'm in a cage and she won't let me out

Silly Games 02:59
Trick or treat, hide and seek, spin the bottle Just to name a few to put the picture in frame I tried to play a game with my baby's heart And she did everything in her power to put me to shame She used to think that I was sweet I thought I knocked her off her feet She threw my things out on the street Like she didn't know my name I thought I knew how the game was played But she saw right through my charade Oh, the girls can throw you shade When you play silly games Kick the can, Hopscotch, double dutch Yea the things we used do to pass the time I'd tried to bring home flowers to avoid a fight She yelled red light, green light, I know where your A** was last night She used to think that I was sweet I thought I knocked her off her feet She threw my things out on the street Like she didn't know my name I thought I knew how the game was played But she saw right through my charade Oh, the girls can throw you shade When you play silly games

Girls come and go that's one thing I know This time I have met the perfect one She might have some flaws But underneath it all I know I'll be happy in the long run Girl, I just wanna say you're my baby And I love you so Though trouble may come, whatever I'll be with you forever So darling please never let me go There was a time when life lacked rhythm and rhyme There was no music in my life Then you came along With the perfect song You ended all my pain and strife CHORUS You got me shook girl When i look into your eyes You got this look girl stole my heart and you didn't even try You wrote the book girl On takin' names and breakin' hearts They should keep you in a museum Because you're a work of art I ain't no fool girl But you been provin' me all wrong Took me to school girl Like a fire a drill ring the alarm Thought i was cool girl But i lose my wind when i'm near you My world was falling apart You've made everything seem shiny and new

When man is weak he'll do stupid things Even when he knows all the pain he will bring You never plan to break your lover's heart But in the heat of the moment you can tear your world apart Life's a book it's a story told From the time you're young until you're old Love will come if you're lucky it stays Don't slip up, and push it away The girl of my dreams just fell in my arms She said I won her over with all my charms Secrets we keep will build up walls Hopefully our love will catch us if well fall Life's a book it's a story told From the time you're young until you're old Love will come if you're lucky it stays Don't slip up, and push it away BREAK Life's a book it's a story told From the time you're young until you're old Love will come if you're lucky it stays Don't slip up, and push it away

95. That's Fine with Me (Try it Baby) You said I don't treat you like your other man You said that he takes you out, even holds your hand Well, he really sounds like a gentleman So why are you in my lovin' arms instead of with hangin with him? Whatever you need to do pretty baby to ease your mind Do your thing, that's fine You said he buys you all the latest indie rock records You said when you talk that he listens you ain't disrespected You said that there ain't a time of the day when he's out of line So why you kiss on my check sayin' youre on cloud nine Whatever you wanna do to pretty mama ease your mind Do your thing, that's fine Pretty baby I think you're confused You think I'm only hangin' with for something to use But you're the star in my sky The twinkle in my eyes Make no mistake girl, I'm your guy The way you're talkin' lately ain't makin' much sense Looks like you found a comfortable place to ride on that fence You can either be with me in misery Or be with the man you been talkin about that you want me to be Whatever you need to do to ease your mind Do your thing, that's fine

The moment she stood in front of me It felt like de ja vu The second that she spoke Was the minute I became woke Within the hour, i'd say we were through Personally for me the time that you spend me Don't really mean a thing If i don't feel you're my girl It's like we came from different worlds And you can certainly forget about that ring Oh the strings of our hearts should play melodies Too many wrong notes it's a felony All the love in the world Don't mean a thing Kickin' and screamin' like a girl Don't mean a thing Put some fire up under your backside Hit the road before I backslide Find a warm place to go, unless you like snow Say alright? Alright! Our romance started off like a fantasy you thought we the dream pair But i knew your mind was racing and i knew the dream you were chasing but your dream was my nightmare So many nights I'd wonder why What made me stick around When ya started actin' crazy, I should have been like Patrick Swayze And ghosted my way outta town Oh the strings of our hearts should play melodies Too many wrong notes it's a felony All the love in the world Don't mean a thing Kickin' and screamin' like a girl Don't mean a thing Put some fire up under your backside Hit the road before I backslide Find a warm place to go, unless you like snow Say alright? Alright! I tried to reason with you But you had your mind set on walkin' down that isle My mind's made up And I've seen enough After awhile crocodile Chorus

97. Now I'm Crying (Ooo Baby Baby) I've got a question that's runnin through my mind But the answer In my heart, I can swear that your love is pure But in my mind, I can't tell if i'm sure Oh no! I don't think my baby's in love Oh no I don't think my baby's in love Oh no I don't think my baby's in love we me anymore You say I'm crazy, that it's just imagination But i can't ignore this evil sensation The first time around, I didn't take a stand But i know deep down inside you're seeing another man Oh no! I don't think my baby's in love Oh no I don't think my baby's in love Oh no I don't think my baby's in love we me anymore They say a dog will look down When he knows that he's done wrong but a snake will look you right in the eyes face to face we stand I'm drowning your blues I'm leaving you girl, this should be no surprise No more of this run around I've caught you red handed Meeting him behind my back, and I just can't stand it You say that you'd never ever play this game But when i see you look away the truth is in your shame Oh no! I don't think my baby's in love Oh no I don't think my baby's in love Oh no I don't think my baby's in love we me anymore

The calming sound of a familiar voice Gives a someone without options a choice A reason to carry on their day I can't always be there to hold your hand And the distance between us is unbearable to stand If you're feelin' down you know I'm around To take those blues away You got my number You can call me anytime Just pick up the phone You can tell me what's on your mind You don't need a reason It don't matter rain or shine Just pick up the phone You can tell me what's on your mind When you're not here i almost can't stand it Don't ever think i take you for granted I miss you when you are not here you see You say I love when I make you laugh So many feelings and you don't know the half But when you're on the line Everything is fine with me CHORUS
9.
Sometimes a so called friend will try to mess with your world Throwin' monkey's in your wrench, or tryna take your girl Stab you in the back leave their name on the knife Makes you even wonder why, you keep em' 'round in your life They say that good friends are hard to find I know what you did and you crossed the line You're no good And you ain't no friend of mine Every time I close my eyes, all I can hear your laugh The first thing that comes to mind, is cuttin' you in half I take a little walk, but everywhere you go you see their face The only reason they you walk the earth is because of my grace They say that good friends are hard to find I know what you did and you crossed the line You're no good And you ain't no friend of mine Get outta my life! You got a drunken smile on your lips Deception in your heart Jealousy and envy Tearin' my world apart Flashin' your money at everything But money can't buy you class I know karma personally And she'll knock you on your oooh! They say that good friends are hard to find I know what you did and you crossed the line You're no good And you ain't no friend of mine
10.
Oh, you. You found a way to control me And there's no way to console me When you say if i don't behave That you'll walk away Oh, I Never said I was a strong man But my friends don't understand Why I'm such a slave To every single word you say Oh you keep me down You keep me down But I hang around I hang around Why's so damn hard to let you go I can't let you go Oh, we It's been forever since we got along They're empty spaces where our love belonged And I'm afraid That if don't fill this void My fragile world will be destroyed Many times I've come so close To loosening your grip But I get mixed emotions When i start to feel you slip (away) There is no hope for me Leave me alone, just let me be A man can only take so much Before he starts to break His seams will come apart As his foundation shake Like glass i'm sure to shatter But nothing really matters In peices i will finally be free

about

This is it! My first official FULL album, well with more than 8 songs. It was a concept from the beginning.

My goal was to find a top 100 Motown hits of all time list, and reverse engineer all the songs. I'm only taking the the rhythm, tempo, my version of the drum pattern, and sometimes the theme. The melodies, lyrics, and music are all mine. I really hope you enjoy this man. It's half electric, half acoustic, so there's something for everyone!

Peace
