Can't Take Me Home Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Split Personality

I do not trust, so I cannot love
(can't no man be trusted)
Oh no no no
And I would not dare to open up
(this life of yours is dusted Pink)
Well my rent's past due and now my car won't start, I hate the bus
(well aren't you glad you have somebody to talk to)
Tell me what do they see when they look at me
Do they see my many personalities

[Chorus:]
Can you help me
Does anybody hear me
Can they even see me
This is my reality, oh oh

(can it be my turn now, is it my turn Pink)
Said I'll say it again, you're my only friend
(I protect you from the world, I basically protect you from yourself)
Though I can't go on, I'm not satisfied with this being the end
(this is just the beginning)
Tell me why can't I just reach up and simply touch the sky
Tell me why can't I spread my arms and fly and fly and fly
Tell me why can't I say this, why can't I do that
Tell me what do they want from me, tell me how to act

[Repeat Chorus 2x]

So I'm putting it all on the table
(tell em' Pink)
You don't know me well enough to label me, sick, or even disturbed
When you break it down I'm just two girls
Trying to blend, trying to vibe
(trying)
Trying to live just one life
(so hard)
Everybody's got insanities...I got a split personality
Tell me why can't I just reach up and simply touch the sky
(why can't you)
Tell me why can't I spread my arms and fly and fly and fly
(you can)
Tell me why can't I say this, why can't I do that
(just do it)
Tell me what do they want from me, tell me how to act
(I can't, I can't)

[Repeat Chorus 3x]

Can you help me
(talk to me, talk to me, don't ignore me, I can't take it)
Do you hear me
Do you see me everytime
(oh calm down, it's not that serious, we'll be just fine without them)
It's all mine...it's my reality...it's just too much for me
(you're my friend, you're my friend...Pink!...Pink!)

Hell Wit Ya


What is this
I heard you got a new miss
We just broke up so you know that I'm pissed
They say you're faithful I don't believe that shhhh...
Oh no, oh no

[Bridge:]
Oh I tried to act like I didn't care
But it doesn't seem fair you're so good to her
And I tried to pretend I didn't see all those things that you do, you couldn't do for me

[Chorus:]
I was in love wit ya
But the hell wit ya cuz you didn't wanna treat me right
I was in love wit ya
But the hell wit ya cuz you didn't wanna treat me right
Now ya got another girl in your life, givin her love all day and night
I was in love wit ya
But the hell wit ya cuz you didn't wanna treat me right

So I hear, I've met the wench before
(yeah I remember that time we went to Pizza Hut and you told me she was your cousin)
I hear you learned to open doors
(so when did you become such a damn gentleman)

[Repeat Bridge]

[Repeat Chorus]

What does she do to you
To make you give her everything like you never did for me
Call it jealousy, but it's killin me
Cuz all the time that you were mine, you didn't treat me right
No no, no you didn't treat me right, no no no

[Repeat Chorus]

Most Girls

I never cared too much for love
It was all a bunch of mush that I just did not want
Paid was the issue of the day
If a girlfriend's got some game
Couldn't be more fly, gettin paid was everything
But I'm not every girl and I don't need that world to validate me
Cuz shorty's got a job, shorty's got a car, shorty can pay her own rent
Don't wanna dance if it is not in my heart

[Chorus:]
MOST GIRLS want a man with the bling bling
Got my own thing, got the ching ching
I just want real love
MOST GIRLS want a man with the mean green
Don't wanna dance if he can't be everything that I dream of
A man that understands real love

I was a girl about the floss
It was all about the cost, how much he spent on me
Seek, for a man who's got the means
To be givin you diamond rings
It's what every fly girl could want or even dream
But I'm not every girl and I don't need no G to take care of me
Cuz shorty's got a job, shorty's got a car, shorty can pay her own rent
Don't wanna dance if it is not in my heart, no no

[Repeat Chorus 2x]

But I'm not every girl
And I don't need no G to take care of me, no
Cuz shorty's got a job, shorty's got a car, shorty can pay her own rent
Don't wanna dance if it is not in my heart, oh most girls

[Repeat Chorus 2x]

Cuz I'm not most girls, don't wanna dance if he can't be everything
I, I just want real love, said I gotta have real love
Everything that, can you be everything that I dream of

There You Go

Please don't come around talkin bout that you love me
Cuz that love shit just ain't for me
And I dont wanna hear that you adore me
And I know that all you're doin is runnin your mind games
Don't you know my game beats these games
So your best bet is to be straight with me

So you say you wanna talk, let's talk
If you won't talk, I'll walk, yeah it's like that
Got a new man, he's waiting out back
Now what, what you think about that
Now when I say I'm through, I'm through
Basically, I'm through with you
Whatcha wanna say, had to have it your way, had to play games
Now you're beggin me to stay

[Chorus:]
There you go, lookin pitiful
Just because I let you go
There you go, talkin bout you want me back
But sometimes it be's like that, so
There you go, talkin bout you miss me so, that you love me so, why I let ya go
There you go cause your lies got old, look at you
There you go

Please don't come around talkin bout how you changed
How you said good-bye to what's-her-name
All it sounds like to me is new game
And I was right when I thought I'd be much better off without you
Had to get myself from round you, cuz my life was all about you

So you say you wanna talk, I don't
Say you wanna change, I won't
Yeah, it's like that
Had your chance, won't take ya back
Now what, whatcha think about that
And when I say I'm through, I'm through
Basically I'm through wit you
Whatcha wanna say
Had to have it your way, had to play games, now you're beggin me to stay

[Repeat Chorus]

Oooh, don't you wish you could turn the hands of time
Don't you wish you still were mine
Don't you wish I'd take you back
Don't you wish that things were simple like that, oh
Didn't miss a good thing till it was gone
But I knew it wouldn't be long, till you came runnin back
Missin my love, there you go

[Repeat Chorus 3x]

So there you go, there you go

You Make Me Sick

[Spoken]
They make me sick
I know I feel you, that's why we gotta stick together
Yep Yep Yep [laughs] I know it...

[Chorus:]
You make me sick
I want you and I'm hatin it
Got me lit like a candlestick
Get too hot when you touch the tip, I'm feelin it, I gotta getta grip
And it's drivin me crazy baby don't you quit
Can't get enough of it
You got me goin again
Baby, you got me goin again
You make me sick

He was doing 8-0 on the freeway
In the 6 double O, bumpin Isley
He was gettin kinda close, kinda touch-ay
Cuz he had a little too much Hennessey
He told me that he wanna go home, with me up on the hill to my condo
Told me he would keep it all on the low-low
But I told him, "boo, I don't really know though"
He got closer to me...it started gettin deep
He had me in a zone when he started to show me things
I never saw before
Baby was smooth but I knew it was game
Hell-of-a cool but you men are the same
The way he licked his lips and touched my hips
I knew that he was slick

[Repeat Chorus]

In the 6 now, so hot
Gotta pull all the windows down
Eyes lead and I'm thinkin bout the sheets now
Wonderin should I really take it there now
He told me he would make it worth it
Again, how many times have I heard this
Kinda funny, but I wasn't even nervous
Well his slick-ass lines were kinda workin
I felt my knees get weak...his body was callin me
Just couldn't take the heat
Anyway it was 2 or 3, I had to get off the streets
Baby was cool but I knew it was game
Said, he was too schooled to be screamin my name
Even though we made the best of it
I still told him this...

[Repeat Chorus]

[Repeat Chorus 2x]

Can't..no no no
Oh, you make me sick
I want you and I'm hatin it...hatin it...hatin it

Let Me Let You Know

Dear baby, I'm not sorry for leavin you this way
But I know that I should have told you face-to-face
We've always been straight up so I, I won't waste your time
I'm leavin, say good-bye, because I know what you did last night

[Chorus:]
Let me let you know, yeah
That I'm leavin baby
Let me let you know, yeah
That I'm leavin baby
Let me let you know
I don't know where I'm goin but I'm goin far from here
Let me let you know yeah
That I'm leavin baby

One more thing before I go, I hope you feel alone
Cuz I'm definitely tired of waiting for you to come home
(been waitin for you at home)
We've always been straight up, so I, I'll just take what's mine
I'm leavin, say good-bye, because you hurt me for the last time
Let me, let you know

[Repeat Chorus]

Whatever your excuse is, I'm sure, I've heard them all before
Time and time again I told ya, that I need you more
Now I'm walkin out the door

[Repeat Chorus]

Ooh baby, I'm just here to let you know honey
Ooh, yeah
Here to let you know
Let me let you know yeah
I'm leavin

[Repeat Chorus to fade]

Love Is Such A Crazy Thing

I never thought I'd find someone
But you came along and made me see
That you were the only one for me
Boy, I love you constantly

[Bridge:]
You are my love, my only love
Baby my heart belongs to you
Be with me, don't play with me
If you want love just let me know

[Chorus:]
Love...love is such a crazy thing
Never understood the way I was supposed to feel
Is this love for real
Oh love, love is such a crazy thing
Never understood the way I was supposed to feel
Is this love for real (love for real)

I dreamed of someone like you before
But I never thought I'd get the chance
To romance someone as sweet as you
I hope you feel the same as I do

[Repeat Bridge]

Love, love is such a crazy thing (crazy feeling)
Never understood the way I was supposed to feel
Is this love for real (boy you are my love)
Love, love is such a crazy thing (love is such a crazy thing)
Never understood the way I was supposed to feel
Is this love for real (oh my love)

[Repeat Bridge]

Love, love is such a crazy thing (it's too crazy for me)
Never understood the way I was supposed to feel
Is the love, is it real, is it real
Love, love is such a crazy thing (love is such a crazy thing)
Never understood the way I was supposed to feel
Is this love for real, love for real
(baby I think of you, I wanna be with you, I don't understand, is this love for real?
You see I dream of you...every night and day.
I don't understand, is this love for real?
Love's such a crazy thing...)

Private Show

Silly you, silly me
To letcha in and put a move on me
Yeah yeah yeah
Never once asked for love
Always took it for what it's worth, memories

[Bridge:]
See I dont wanna meet on a lonely street
Where the talk is cheap and the price is sweet
I'm not that girl, Im not that girl
And you dont wanna see the other side of me
So I'm gonna hit ya off and I'm gonna set ya free
Before you fall too deep, don't fall too deep

[Chorus:]
He don't know
I'm gonna be the one who's gonna let him go
Even if he wants to stay, I'll let him go
Cuz all he wants from me is a private show
Ohhh...

He's all talk, think's he knows, how this game's supposed to go
For everyone
Still it seems, he can't see
Thinks he's just usin' me, usin' me

[Repeat Bridge]

[Repeat Chorus]

He don't know
Maybe if he wasn't such a gigalo, (a nasty hoe)
I would let him stay, instead I let him go
Cuz all he wants from me is a private show
Ohhh...

He dont know
I'm gonna be the one who's gonna let him go, I let him go
Private show, oh no no no no
He don't know, I let him go, nasty hoe
Ohhh, pri-vate show, he don't know, he don't know
Let him go...even if he wants to stay I'll let him go
Cuz all he wants from me is a private show...oh oh oh
He don't know...oh oh oh...he don't know

Can't Take Me Home

[Chorus:]
Can't take me home to mama cuz she wouldn't think I'm proper
Shoulda thought about that before you f***** with me
Don't say you're fallin for me, don't tell me you adore me
Cuz all you're thinkin bout is f***** me
Can't take me home to mama cuz she wouldn't think I'm proper
Shoulda thought about that before you f***** with me
Don't say you're fallin for me, don't tell me you adore me
Cuz all you're thinkin bout is f***** me

Why'd ya even talk to me, baby were you curious
You knew you never had a love like this
My love was serious, had you delirious
Don't front, I felt it in every kiss
You try and play me, like I ain't your lady
When you just told me that you love me and you want me as your baby
Understand me, cuz I know we can be
Just as happy as anybody, let your heart feel me baby

[Repeat Chorus]

What the hell was on your mind
You thought I had the time, to be your little undercover thing
But see I can't deal with that, so you better just split with that
Come at me real
Quit playin these silly games
How can you love me, and then just leave me
Because you see somebody looking
And you think they disagree
Well they don't feed you, so why you care boo
Cuz the best love you ever had is right here with you

[Repeat Chorus]

I don't want nobody else but you
But if you keep playing, then I'll make you the fool
Cuz it's a Pink thang
It's the way you would wanna get with me
Oh, it's a Pink thang
Tell you, your mama you're just gonna hafta see

[Repeat Chorus to fade]

Stop Falling

[Chorus:]
I ain't lookin for a steady thing
I ain't lookin for what love brings
I'm still young and I ain't ready babe
I'm still lookin for some better days
I don't wanna give you everything
I just wanna make you feel things
If you ain't down to give me everything
Just throw it away

Don't assume cuz I'm a woman
That I'll fall in love
Don't expect I'm young and need to be took care of
Don't wanna hear you got what I need
Cuz how would you know before we speak
You've gotta understand my side
I've had a crazy, crazy life
Nobody came along to open up my eyes
You've gotta take what you can get
Don't even bother with my heart
Cuz I get a feeling I won't let it start

[Repeat Chorus]

Please believe me
I've been down this road and back again
Learned my lesson and it was that love is not my friend
For the day I put my trust in you
Would be the day I say "I do"
Don't expect me just to open up
Maybe I'm just a little scared
Please don't tell me what you think I wanna hear
Oh baby save it, I've heard it all before
There ain't nothin you could say, whoa, to make me change my ways

[Repeat Chorus]

So stop falling
Stop falling
You know you're falling....for me
Stop falling
Stop falling
Stop falling...for me
You've gotta understand my side
I've had a crazy, crazy life
Nobody came along to open up my eyes
Oh baby, take what you can get
Don't even bother with my heart
I get a feeling I won't let it start

[Repeat Chorus]

Stop falling...

Do What You Do

Some people like the summer when it's hot
Some people like the winter cold
Some people speak they minds when they wanna
And some other people ain't so bold
Whatever it is that you do you should do
You should do it wit ya head held high
So when you're doin your thing it's cuz you wanna
And they never can ask you why

[Chorus:]
I say do what you do
Say what you say
Mean what you mean when you say
Cuz it's your life, gotta make your own rules
And you gotta do it your way
I say do what you do
Say what you say
Mean what you mean when you say
Cuz it's your life, gotta make your own rules
And you gotta do it your way

Some, they like it easy
When others, they like it rough
But ain't nobody gotta like it but you
Girl, boy, boy, girl, girl, girl, boy, boy
Whatever, you should do what you do
How could they tell you that you coulda-shoulda-woulda
When ask them can they walk in your shoes
Cuz it's your life and you do what you wanna
And remember baby, it's all about you

[Repeat Chorus]

So if it's on your mind, then you should speak your piece
And say what you say
And if you want it done, then you should get it done
And do it your way
So if it's on your mind, then you should speak your piece
And say what you say
And if you want it done, then you should get it done
And do it your way

[Repeat Chorus]

[Repeat Chorus Again [after the long break]]

Hiccup

[Chorus:]
Why everytime I try to tell you how it feel
It's like a hiccup-cup come and it won't come-come
Soon as I think I'm bout to share my lovin
That's when the hiccup's comin
Why everytime I try to tell you how it feel
It's like a hiccup-cup come and it won't come-come
Soon as I think I'm bout to share my lovin
That's when the hiccup's comin

You're like a cough on a rainy day
You know the kind that gives you chest pains, yeah
And just as things start to feel OK
Then here you come to break away
You love me hard and you squeeze me tight
You let me go then you pick a fight
You make me wanna scream, cry, and shout out-loud
Boy, you got me spinnin round-and-round

[Repeat Chorus]

My thoughts, they kinda shake-y
Everytime I get around you sweet baby
Sometimes, I don't know what I'm tryin to say
Just tell me baby, tell me things are gonna be OK

[Repeat Chorus]

I get all choked up inside
And I don't know what to say
Sometimes I wanna just run and hide
But you just stand in my way

[Repeat Chorus]

Why everytime I tell you how I feel
It's like a hiccup-cup come and you know the deal
Pink don't think before she speak
But you got me feelin, feelin, feelin kinda weak
Why everytime I tell you how I feel
It's like a hiccup-cup come and you know the deal
Pink don't think before she speak
But you got me feelin, feelin, feelin kinda weak

[Repeat Chorus]

Is It Love

[Chorus:]
Is it love, or just a curse
Do you feel good when I hurt
I need your heart to open up
If this love's not real, then it's just my luck

Mommy help me, I need your help
This little boy, he took my love
And he says these things that make my body pump up
But then he runs leavin me un-done
And I don't understand
For sex he said he'd be my man

[Repeat Chorus]

Daddy listen, I gave it up
I'm not your little girl
My cherry, and all the trust is missing
But please listen, what do I do
I know you wanna hurt him
But I like what he do, he's only doin what you used to

[Repeat Chorus]

You never told me bout the birds and the bees
Or bout hide n' go seek or what he gets when he finds me
The biggest mistakes in the choices I make
Won't you help me decide, what's goin down in my mind

[Repeat Chorus 2x]

That thing you're puttin on me
Has got me so confused
Won't somebody help me, tell me what should I do
In my heart it feels so good, is it just a curse
Will it get better, or will it get worse

[Repeat Chorus To Fade]
