Love In The Future (Intro)

And this is a new year for Love

The Beginning

Last night was the last night
You'll ever spend alone
Couldn't wait
Did it in the living room
Soon as I saw you, baby, I had plans
Plans to do it 'til we have a baby
Even if the world is crazy
Pick some names, boy or girl
Then we'll change, change the world

So after you change your clothes
Girl, if you change your mind
I'm ready, whatever time

It's the beginning of forever
You don't have to go
Sometimes you just know
It's the beginning of forever
It don't have to end
Keep doing it, and doing it again, oh
Keep doing it, and doing it again, oh

Last time was the last time
I was worn and done
You the best, that's why I want another one
Soon as I saw you, baby, I had plans
Planned to take you to my elevator
And cook a little breakfast later
Pick a place and go there, girl
Then we'll change, change the world

So after you change your clothes
Girl, if you change your mind
I'm ready, whatever time

It's the beginning of forever
You don't have to go
Sometimes you just know
It's the beginning of forever
It don't have to end
Keep doing it, and doing it again, oh
Keep doing it, and doing it again, oh

Open Your Eyes

I see you in the lonely place
How can you be so blind
You still regretting the love you left, left behind
Oh darling, I seen you go through the changes
Sitting alone each night
Are you expecting to find the love, love that's right

Darling open your eyes
Let me show you light
Girl you never find a love that's right
Darling open your eyes
Let me show you the light
Girl you think your so wise, your so wise

There are times when you need someone
I will be by your side
I'll take my chances before they pass, pass me by
Oh darling, there is a light that shines
Special for you and me
You need to look at the other side, you'll agree

Darling open your eyes
Let me show you the light
You may never find a love that's right

Darling open your eyes
Let me show you the light
You may never find a love that's right

Darling open your eyes
Let me show you the light
You may never find a love that's right

Darling open your eyes
Let me show you light
Girl you think your so right
You may never find a love that's right

Made To Love

I was sent here for you
We were made to love
We were made to love

You were sent for me too
We were made to love
We were made to love

Oooh I've never seen anything
In much more than you and me
Extraordinary machine

Oooh I've never loved, I've never loved
Never loved someone like this
All-I-know is...

I was sent here for you
We were made to love
We were made to love

You were sent for me too
We were made to love
We were made to love

All made for love, we were made to love

I was sent here for you
We were made to love
We were made to love

You were sent for me too
We were made to love
We were made to love

Oooh, have you ever known
We laid your eyes on
The perfect work of art
I knew right from the start
Oooh, I was never sure of a God before
But I know he must exist:
He created this

I was sent here for you
We were made to love
We were made to love

You were sent for me too
We were made to love
We were made to love

All made for love, we were made to love

I was sent here for you
We were made to love
We were made to love

You were sent for me too
We were made to love
We were made to love

[Vocalizations]

I was sent here for you...

You were sent for me too...

I was sent here for you...

You were sent for me too...

Who Do We Think We Are

[Intro: John Legend]
Who do we think we are?
Baby, tell me, who do we think we are?

[Verse 1: John Legend]
We can't run out of magic
It's the only way we know
Let's trip the night fantastic
Light it up 'til we both explode
We love, we love, we love the stars
We could fall so hard
The drinks, the minks, the jewels, the house, the cars
Why'd we ball so hard?
Yeah, and I, I'm not afraid to fly
Here we are, in the air, barely breathing
And we're not afraid to die

[Hook: John Legend]
Who do we think we are?
Baby, tell me, who do we think we are?
Who do we think we are?
Baby, tell me, who do we think we are?

[Bridge: John Legend]
We've got a lot of nerve, girl
We walk around here like we own this place

[Verse 2: Rick Ross]
See my jewels dripping on my Timberlands
Stepping like a criminal, success is so imminent
Pink champagne, black Rolls Royce
Eggplant double-breasted suit from Tom Ford
Bon voyage, left haters in the fog
Look up in the sky, bet you recognize a boss
Look into my eyes as I fantasize for us
Still actin' shy like this is summer class crush
Money comin' fast, I'm never in a rush, no
Plus another twenty in a tuck
Semi in a truck, another forty on the wrist
Quarter-mill on my mind got me livin' like I pitch
Dodging Robin Givens, boiling like I'm Roger Clemens
Still in the game, uniform all linen
She get Chanel, ski trips to Vail
Only the highest grade, like trees that I inhale

[Hook: John Legend]
And I, I'm not afraid to fly
Here we are, in the air, barely breathing
And we're not afraid to die
Who do we think we are?
Baby, tell me, who do we think we are?
Who do we think we are?
Baby, tell me, who do we think we are?

[Outro: John Legend]
Who do we think we are?
I don't know about y'all, but I feel good tonight
There's something in the air tonight
You know, everyone needs someone to look up to
Why shouldn't it be us?
Who do we think we are?
Tell me, who do we think we are?
Who do we think we are?
Tell me, who do we think we are?

All Of Me

[Verse 1:]
What would I do without your smart mouth
Drawing me in, and you kicking me out
You've got my head spinning, no kidding, I can't pin you down
What's going on in that beautiful mind
I'm on your magical mystery ride
And I'm so dizzy, don't know what hit me, but I'll be alright

[Bridge:]
My head's under water
But I'm breathing fine
You're crazy and I'm out of my mind

[Chorus:]
'Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I'll give my all to you
You're my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I'm winning
'Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, oh

[Verse 2:]
How many times do I have to tell you
Even when you're crying you're beautiful too
The world is beating you down, I'm around through every mood
You're my downfall, you're my muse
My worst distraction, my rhythm and blues
I can't stop singing, it's ringing, in my head for you

[Bridge:]
My head's under water
But I'm breathing fine
You're crazy and I'm out of my mind

[Chorus:]
'Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I'll give my all to you
You're my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I'm winning
'Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, oh

Give me all of you
Cards on the table, we're both showing hearts
Risking it all, though it's hard

[Chorus:]
'Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I'll give my all to you
You're my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I'm winning
'Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you

I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, oh

Hold On Longer

Broken hearts rain on our angelic flies
But I won't run, I'm with you, that's enough
Kiss me now so you won't run

Out of breath underwater
Girl you can hold on longer
Girl you can hold on longer
Girl you can hold on longer
Long as you want

Oh, oh, oh, oh

Love is an ocean
Swimming and try not to drown
Right in the waves
Praying we don't go down
In the undertow I'll pull you out

Out of breath underwater
Girl you can hold on longer
I know the waves get stronger
Girl you can hold on longer
Long as you want
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Hold on

Save The Night

A little trouble in the city
Trouble in my home
She told me love don't live here anymore
I wanna run to the light
It's too dark in this part of night
I need somebody who can make it right

And it's on tonight
How about we go and save the night
I can see you want it and so do I
How about we go and save the night
Let's save the night

I'm not a one man band
I want to sing a duet
You and me would sound much better
You look so good in my bed
And if your gonna go out
Your gonna go on with a bang
Let's save the night I'll be your superman

And it's on tonight
How about we go and save the night
I can see you want it and so do I
How about we go and save the night
Let's save the night

I see the night flashing before her eyes
Resuscitating bring it back to life

And it's on tonight
How about we go and save the night
I can see you want it and so do I
How about we go and save the night
Let's save the night

Oh, let's save the night
Let's save the night

Tomorrow

With good understanding and a lot of patience
You can make it, yes you can
Beyond your wildest dreams

Here we are in the prime of life
We're so ripe, yea the time's right
Here we go and we high off expectations
Let's not waste them

Oh the sunshine in your eyes could break the ice
I can tell that you deserve the best in life
If I offer you the chance to live tonight then take it
We can make it

Don't wait til tomorrow
Don't wait til tomorrow, let's go
Don't wait til tomorrow
We waited all our lives
Don't waste another day

Hesitation will only get you nowhere, don't just stand there
Every moment's a gift, here's your moment to live
Don't have no fear

Oh the sunshine in your eyes could break the ice
I can tell that you deserve the best in life
If I offer you the chance to live tonight then take it
We can make it

Don't wait til tomorrow
Don't wait til tomorrow, let's go
Don't wait til tomorrow
We waited all our lives
Don't waste another day

It's our time, it's our evening
Don't let it slip away, tomorrow's too late
It's our night, please don't leave me
If you're lost I'll help you find your way
Your way to tomorrow
Oh, don't you know we're gonna get there together
Your way to tomorrow

Don't wait til tomorrow
Oh we're gonna get there together

Dreams

Every time I close my eyes
Visions of you come to life
And I see
What we could be

I don't want to be awake
I don't want to see a day
Dawnin
Like this morning

Sun brings llight
Reality strikes
So bring back the night
Cause I'm longin

To dream dream dream dream
Dream dream dream dream
Like lovers do
And it might come true

If I dream dream dream dream
Dream dream dream dream
It just might be the only time that I'm with you

When I dream dream dream
Dream dream dream
Of you

Close to me
Still so far
Close enough
To feel your heart is falling
But he's calling

Baby it seems the time is never right
You're goin left and I'm goin right
It's crazy
But I'm still waiting

If I play my cards right
My lucks gonna strike
Until then there's a night
All I wanna do

Is dream dream dream dream
Dream dream dream dream
Like lovers do
And it might come true

If I dream dream dream dream
Dream dream dream dream
It just might be the only time that I'm with you

When I dream dream dream
Dream dream
Oh I dream
Yes I dream
Dream dream
Dream dream
They say that dreams they sometimes do come true

Your star shines so bright
You're the queen of my night
In the daytime not quite
But I'm so glad that I

Can dream dream dream
Dream dream dream
Like lovers do
And it might come true

If I dream dream dream
Dream dream dream
It just might be
The only time
That Ill be with you

But Ill dream dream dream
Dream dream dream
Of you

Wanna Be Loved

Yea they wanna be loved
Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on
They wanna be loved

Everywhere I go
Everywhere I be
I see lonely hearts and fallen leaves
Where did those hearts go
Do they find their match
Or do they drift away
It's time to bring them back

They wanna be loved, wanna be loved
Come on it's simple enough
They wanna be loved
They wanna be loved, wanna be loved
A little kiss and a hug
They wanna be loved

Now everybody knows it don't always last
But if I can't have it for long then I want it fast
Better love for now then for never at all
So baby if you down, then gimee a call

I wanna be loved, wanna be loved
Come on it's simple enough
I wanna be loved
I wanna be loved, wanna be loved
A little kiss and a hug
I wanna be loved

I wanna be loved, wanna be loved
Come on it's simple enough
I wanna be loved
I wanna be loved, wanna be loved
A little kiss and a hug
I wanna be loved

Don't you wanna be loved
Sing for love
Don't you wanna be loved

You wanna be loved, wanna be loved
Come on it's simple enough
You wanna be loved
You wanna be loved, wanna be loved
A little kiss and a hug
You wanna be loved

Angel (Interlude)

[John Legend:]
If I could, I'd give you the world
Wrap it all around you
Won't be satisfied with just a piece of this heart
My angel, oh angel
You're my angel, oh angel

[Stacy Barthe:]
Oh, dreams are dreams
Some dreams come true
I found a real dream, baby when I found you
You're so strong but tender too
You're my angel

You & I (Nobody In The World)

You fix your make up, just so
Guess you don't know, that your beautiful
Try on every dress that you own
You were fine in my eyes, a half hour ago

If your mirror won't make it any clearer I'll
Be the one to let you know

Out of all the girls
You my one and only girl
Ain't nobody in the world tonight

All of the stars, you make them shine like they were ours
Ain't nobody in the world but you and I
You and I
Ain't nobody in the world but you and I

You stop the room when we walk in
Spotlights on everybody staring
Tell all of these boys, they wasting their time
Stop standing in line, cause your all mine

And this evening I, won't let the feeling die
I never wanna leave your side

Out of all the girls
You my one and only girl
Ain't nobody in the world tonight

All of the stars you make them shine like they were ours
Ain't nobody in the world but you and I
You and I
Ain't nobody in the world

You keep wondering if you're what I'm wanting
You don't even have to try

You don't have to try
Don't try
Don't try
You don't have to try

Out of all the girls
You my one and only girl
Ain't nobody in the world tonight

All of the stars, they don't shine brighter than you are
Ain't nobody in the world but you and I
You and I
You and I
Nobody in the world tonight
Ain't nobody in the world but you and I

Asylum

Our love's an asylum
Where you and I go
Our love's an asylum
Where we go, go, go, go crazy

In a state of madness
Wrapped up in your magic
Ecstatic, an addict
Oh, we landed on another planet
And it feels like home here
Will never go back there

Cause we're crazy, I'll go crazy with you
You're so crazy, I'll go crazy with you

Our love's an asylum
Where you and I go
Our love's an asylum
Where we go, go, go, go, go

To the edge of reason
Grow, lose your mind when needed

Our love's an asylum
Where you and I go
Our love's an asylum
Where we go, go, go, go crazy

Can't nobody save me
I'll go down with you, baby
I'll take you, you'll take me

Crazy - I'll do crazy with you
Let's go crazy, I'll go crazy with you

Our love's an asylum
Where you and I go
Our loves an asylum
Where we go, go, go crazy

So Gone

(Deluxe Edition Bonus Track)

I'm a do my thing
I'm a do, I'm a do, I'm a do my thing

I was born at the end of december
Not afraid that the cold of the winter
Would keep me inside, hey
Ever since mama left me at home
I had to search for a class of my own
And go there in my mind

I had a dream like dr. king
I had a song I had to sing
And I knew it wasn't make believe
When the teacher said to me
Baby, who do you wanna be
Said I don't know but I know that I'm a gonna leave

I'm so gone (just you)
All I do is walk alone (just me)
I'm so gone (just you)
I can make it on my own (just me)
Alright

Everybody wanna follow the crowd
But I belong in the front singing loud
And I'll go solo, hey
But the fame is a hell of a temptress
Not my wife but I guess she's a mistress, oh
Can I let her go

She can play tricks on your mind
Have you leave your soul behind
She's turned some niggas out
But she can't keep her spell on me
She can't keep back mailing me
I'm free to leave, to be just me

I'm so gone (just you)
All I do is walk alone (just me)
I'm so gone (just you)
I can make it on my own (just me)

So many (so many people tryna be somebody else)
Tryna be somebody else (or whatever sells)
I've got my own lane (I've got my own lane, I'm driving by myself)
Hope you wish my well

I'm so gone (just you)
All I do is walk alone (just me)
I'm so gone (just you)
I can make it on my own (just me)

I'm so gone (just you)
All I do is walk alone (just me)
I'm so gone (just you)
I can make it on my own (just me)

If I fall then let me fall, yea yea yea
Oh cause I only got myself to blame
Oh it's just me
All I do is walk alone

We Loved It

(Deluxe Edition Bonus Track)

Come sweetly
Stop me through the shadow of an open door
Breathe quietly now
Take us through the helplessness of it all

And I wonder as I watch you slip away somehow
Wonder if the only thing that's left is now
Wonder if I ever, will I ever love again
Will I ever love again

Oh, lie to me
Lie to me, tell me I'm not wasting time
Oh, convince me you miss me
Your heart still beats as fast as mine
Tell me lies

We loved it
Loved it even more than we know
We lost it
And I don't even know what to do
Tell me what to do

Cause I wonder why it had to slip away somehow
I wonder if you ever wanna see me now
I wonder if I'll ever be the same
Will I ever love again
Will I ever love again

Oh, your eyes haunt me
Taunt me, pierce straight through my heart again
Will it ever end
Cause I wonder as I watch you slip away somehow
I wonder if you ever wanna see me now
Wonder if I ever, will I ever love again
Will I ever love again

We loved it, we loved it
We lost it, we lost it

Aim High

(Deluxe Edition Bonus Track)

You don't have to cry yourself to sleep at night with wet pillows
Girl, I know you're hurt
Did you know that you can dry your pillows with your dreams and smile
It really works
Lay your head back in my arms, oh, I know your worth
So just reach inside your heart and pack your bags
And let's leave this earth

Let's aim high, oh girl
All you gotta do is close your eyes and - and visualize
Let's aim high

You work so hard for your boss, to him it's just work
Never considers your dreams, selfish and mean
Damn, that's gotta hurt

Just lay your head back in my arms, girl
I know you're worth
So allow me indulge your mind with these words
Open your eyes, you're now a bird

Let's aim high, girl
All you gotta do is close your eyes and - and visualize

You possess the power to do
If you concentrate, mountains will move
If you just believe that it's true
Please make no mistake I'll be there too

You possess the power to do
If you concentrate, mountains will move
If you just believe that it's true
Make no mistake I'll be there too
Let's aim high

For The First Time

(Deluxe Edition Bonus Track)

Is that music in my ear
It's like I heard nothing for a thousand years
My eyes were closed, locking in my tears

I was so surrounded but still all alone
A great big house but so far from home
How'd you breathe life in this heart of soul

It's like I can feel, it's like I can breathe
It's like I can live, it's like I can love
For the first time, for the first time
For the first time, for the first time

I'm electric, finally exposed
You see through me, strip off all my clothes
If this is falling, then let me go, oh

It's like I can feel, it's like I can breathe
It's like I can live, it's like I can love
For the first time, for the first time
For the first time, for the first time

I'm finally awake and I can feel my heart
It's beating like a drum when I'm right here where you are
I can feel it, I can feel it, oh
Can you feel it

It's like I can feel, it's like I can breathe
It's like I can live, it's like I can love
For the first time, for the first time
For the first time, for the first time

It's like I can feel, it's like I can breathe
It's like I can live, it's like I can love
For the first time, for the first time
For the first time, for the first time
