Braveheart Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Intro - Braveheart

[Intro:]
After every place I've been
And everything that I've gone through
Every uphill battle and every betrayal
The fight in me remains
My willpower to win
My strength to survive
A lot of people counted me out
And that feeds my hunger
And ignites my passion to continue my journey
I will continue to thrive
Continue to prosper
I will continue to be brave
I am BraveHeart

[Chorus:]
BraveHeart [x8]

[Verse 1:]
Sometimes I don't get it right, I act up and he'll let it
Go until I stop and realize what he got I won't get it

[Bridge:]
Cause ain't nobody counting more for me
And he know that he got my hope so he
Continue to love me, continue to touch me, continue to f*ck me, ooh
He put up a greater lock cause I got him out for me
Closest thing that he got to just about control me
Cut from a different cloth, now not without my beloved
And he be knowing he'll wipe these tears

[Chorus:]
BraveHeart [x4]
You know I got a BraveHeart
He know he got a BraveHeart
We both gotta have a BraveHeart
BraveHeart

[Verse 2:]
I'm so lucky to have to have you by my side
I know it ain't easy, baby
I appreciate it and I'm glad we made it
Cause ain't nobody counting more for me

[Bridge]
[Chorus]

[Verse 3:]
You don't know what you mean to be, baby
Cause with a girl like me it don't be easy
So if you wanna learn to keep him happy, baby
Lose them battles, win the war and he's all yours
Oh yeah yeah

[Chorus]

No Where

[Verse 1:]
Don't matter how much we fighting
Don't matter how much I cry and
It don't matter how much we try to leave each other alone
It won't last for long cause we got something they want
I'm sick when you're gone, waiting up 'til you get home

[Bridge:]
And I ain't gonna sleep 'til I see your face
Even though I'm mad I'mma fix your place
Ain't no other man that can take your place
Believe me

[Chorus:]
I ain't going nowhere, you ain't gotta worry
Ain't nobody perfect, but what we got is worth it

[Verse 2:]
It don't matter if we hit had times
Cause I got your back and you got mine
And when the break comes I'mma be the main one
Holding you down through the storm
It won't last for long
I tell you I'mma leave, but I don't
I'm sick when you're gone and I be waiting up 'til you're getting home

[Bridge]
[Chorus]

[Verse 3:]
I swear if you keep loving me like you loving me I'll keep loving you
Can't nobody do the thing you do
And even if we don't get along for a minute
Can't nobody else come and break this commitment
We ain't perfect, we worth it so I

[Chorus]

Runaway

[Verse 1:]
Time and time again I convince myself that we ain't over
Don't listen to my friends when they say I'm the fool cause they don't know love
Then you go and do some shit that proves them all right
Each and every time

[Chorus:]
I try to make it work
I try to make it work, but I just end up hurt
I tell you it's okay cause I don't wanna leave
But you make it so hard for me to stay so I run away

[Verse 2:]
Every time I try to ignore it my mind just reminds me we're through
And even if you try to move on ain't another you'll find that'll do what I do
You lied to me so many times I just can't take no more
You're dragging my heart to the floor

[Chorus]

[Verse 3:]
So here's what I wanna do, baby
Instead of me fighting with you, baby
I'll leave, I'mma let this shit free
Usually I don't run from nothing
Losing me with your lack of love hurts
I had enough

[Chorus]

Count

[Bridge:]
Speed it up and get it back
Make it count where it at
Leave it up every time
Can you handle it? Can you handle it?

[Chorus:]
Baby, don't make me
Count, count, count, count, count, count, count, count, count your money
Baby, don't make me
Count, count, count, count, count, count, count, count, count your money

[Verse 1:]
Take me to your island, let me see the rain, waters, sun now
You sweating, put your gun down
If I call you Caesar you gotta be Caesar just one time
I'll please you if you spoil mine
Drink up, only drink up
All walking funny, the hell is in that cup?
Oh, I'm feeling bad the way we're waking up
A couple more glasses and you gon' get a pass at this

[Bridge]
[Chorus]

[Verse 2:]
Dollars ain't nothin', bottles ain't nothin'
If you see something, push up all the buttons
Oh baby, go bigger, baby, keep it jumpin'
Pop a couple more and you'll get access to this lovin'
Oh baby, drink up, only drink up
Ooh, I got the feeling, oh, that's just your luck
Show me how you roll, I ain't looking for love
First I said "be easy", now I'm saying "get rough"
Oh baby, spend it all

[Bridge]
[Chorus]

[Verse 3:]
Don't make me count that money
If you spending like you saying then lay it out in front of me, yeah
He gon' hustle 'til he die
Yeah, he just my type
G5 through the sky

[Chorus]

3 Words

[Verse 1:]
I wish I could turn my body inside out
So you could see every piece of me
My heart can't contain this, my mouth don't explain it
It ain't enough to tell you what I mean
There's only so many words I could use to tell you what you do to me
Using me sexually penetrating my immunity

[Chorus:]
I just can't explain it, Picasso couldn't paint it
But these 3 words say all; I love you
I love you

[Verse 2:]
I hate that you got this power over me
You came and took possession of my soul
Now you're so in my system, my vital signs missin'
When you ain't here so I can't let you go
And they don't understand why I still be here while you be out, oh
I'm staring in the mirror saying ''damn, I really love him''

[Chorus:]
I just can't explain it, Picasso couldn't paint it
But these 3 words say all; I hate you
I hate you

[Verse 3:]
I don't why it really hurts me
I'm still here and why do I love him through these tears?
Maybe cause we been together all these years
And maybe being alone in this, my one true fear
I know I can't change him so why am I complaining?
I know it sounds insane, but I'm still staying
Cause deep inside I love him and deep inside I hate him

[Chorus:]
And these 3 words say it all; I love you

[Outro:]
I love, I hate, I love, I hate, I love, I hate, I love
I hate, I love I hate, I love, I hate, I love, I hate, I love you

And I’mma make you feel like you’ve never felt before

Red light, green light, just like that
Using my fingers like finger I win
Switchin these positions like a twisted ending girl

Scars

(Verse)
Yeah, he's a walkin', talkin', living regret
I wish I never met him, never slept wid him
Never been by myself

If I would have known better
I would have never stayed together with you

(Bridge)
He knows that I'm gone
And I ain't coming back
Wish I could be vindictive
So I can hurt him back

(Interlude)
And I'm gon' make sure
I'm drop dead gorgeous everytime he see me
So he wanted more

And I'mma make sure everything
Is successful

(Pre-Chorus)
He fucking his ego
He lost when he let me go
I was probably the best thing
That happened to him, he know
Crazy, can't find, there ain't nothing like mine
Oh, man, you was just tough,
I guess he couldn't man his own balls
Gave you everything, all of me
All my heart, and I leave it, the start

(Chorus)
These scars, these scars
You could have left the game
My heart is lame, nothing remains
Under these scars

(Verse)
Now, I can barely make a stand in here
Look in your face
Though you disgrace, to who we were and what we have
Know we was on it
Like Usher, we both had it bad
Everything you thought that we stood for
I'm taking all that back

(Bridge)
He knows that I'm gone
And I ain't coming back
Wish I could be vindictive
So I can hurt him back

(Interlude)
And I'm gon' make sure
I'm drop dead gorgeous everytime he see me
So he wanted more

Never Should Have

You were all that I wanted
I fell in love with all of your heart and your soul
From that moment couldn't imagine
You ever hurting me or mistreating my love
I should have known

Rivers of tear drops
These sharp pains in my heart
If this was the way that you loved
You never should have loved me

You never should have loved me
You never should have touched me
You never should have
Never should have told me you loved me and you would never leave me.
'Cause everything that you would do
It made me fall in love with you
Until you left and you made that mistake
Now I can't take you back if I wanted to

(Ohh ohh ohh ohh...)

Balled up, laying in my bed
Thoughts racing through my head
How did we start up in love and end up here?
You said you loved me and I believed you
Seems like you don't even mean what you say.

Rivers of tear drops,
These sharp pains in my heart
If this was the way that you loved
You never should have loved me

You never should have loved me
You never should have touched me
You never should have,
Never should have told me you loved me and you would never leave me.
'Cause everything that you would do
It made me fall in love with you
Until you left and you made that mistake
Now I can't take you back if I wanted to

You were all that I wanted
I fell in love with you
'cause you loved me and I thought that you were ready
I thought that we were gonna be a family
And if you weren't then you should have let me
Keep all my love to give
To someone who will

You never should have loved me
You never should have touched me
You never should have
Never should have told me you loved me and you would never leave me.
'Cause everything that you would do
It made me fall in love with you
Until you left and you made that mistake
Now I can't take you back if I wanted to

(Ohh ohh ohh ohh...)

Until you left and you made that mistake
Now I can't take you back if I wanted to

Yeah, yeah, yeah, hmm, hmm hmmm.

She Can't

[Verse 1:]
First off I'm a say it like this
I don't care where she's going 'cause I'm that, I'm that chick
I know I got what it takes
Ain't never been the hardest chick, I'm a particular make
And I ain't tryin to be happy with it
You gotta know how to pizazz, you got the business
You gotta let him know what he got on his hands
And if he tryin to forget better remind his ass
Yea, yea

[Pre-Chorus:]
You told me you love me
You told me you care
You said there'll be no more mistakes

And you came runnin back
'Cause you know

[Chorus:]
I got that oh
She can't love, she can't touch you like oh
She won't 'cause she won't f*ck you like oh
She ain't got a body like mine
Face like mine, the brain not like mine

She won't 'cause she won't f*ck you like oh
She ain't got a body like mine
Face like mine, the brain not like mine
Oh no

[Verse 2:]
So you don't have to wait for a million times
Been through thick and thin and everything between the twines
Aye, said I've been holdin it down
You ain't gon find nobody built like me around
I will give you all the respect in the world
No need to keep me on a pedestal
And nobody never made you feel
Like I make you feel, let's keep it real
Yea, yea

[Pre-Chorus:]
You told me you love me
You told me you care
You said there'll be no more mistakes
Yea, you said
You said you were sorry
It won't happen again
And you came runnin back
Time to play

[Chorus:]
I got that oh
She can't love, she can't touch you like oh
She won't 'cause she won't f*ck you like oh
She ain't got a body like mine
Face like mine, the brain not like mine
Oh no
She can't love, she can't touch you like oh
She won't 'cause she won't f*ck you like oh
She ain't got a body like mine
Face like mine, the brain not like mine
Oh no

Don't Tell Me No

[Chorus:]
Baby I don't need you but I want you so I got you
Got you by my side but things ain't going right
Happy when I see you but I need to keep it real with you
No relationships I'm just tryna live

[Verse 1:]
Don't wanna hurt nobody
Let me tell you how I feel (tell you how I feel)
I just wanna have somebody I can trust that knows the deal (trust that knows the deal)
Don't wanna make you mad telling you about last night and how much fun I had
Just because I'm not with you I don't need your attitude

[Chorus x2]

[Verse 2:]
The other day you asked why I came home late and who was I with (who was I with)
Don't get me wrong I know you care but I can't get down with all the questioning
Ooohh I like spending time with you but don't get the wrong idea
Don't make me your priority Cause this settling down thing just ain't me

[Chorus x2]

[Hook:]
Boy don't think I'm here try to use you try to confuse you
Just on you know I care a lot about you happy that I found you
Let's be clear what were all about you gotta figure out
You want this we gotta know that we ain't forming no relationships

[Chorus x2]

Ohh, I got it, I got it

[Future:]
Push it to the limit, like a big body benz
Push to the limit, push it
Push to the limit

[Ashanti:]

My head so high and I can't come down

He feeling my persona trying to push up on it

Ohh

Well, I'm ready able and capable
So come get it

If you want it, I got it
That body on me, I got it
When you wake up, I got it

Put them bottles up if you got it
Keep spending that money like you got it
'Cause you may never get another night like this
So push it to the limit, if you about this life then live it

[Rick Ross:]
She knowing I'm the hottest, knowing I'm the biggest
F*ck being modest, I'm worth 50 million
Bricks on consignment, killed Carolina, bullet proof coupes
Silk shirts designer
She wanted cappuccino so I bought the Starbucks
2.4 that's off 2 notch roll
Nickels on the corner, Pickles in the salad
Pictures on the wall, Chickens in the attic
Choppa's in the phantom
Bezels on the watches
Hate in your heart, really you the target
They say I'm hard to kill, there's money on my head
(Let's make it work tonight)
Mastermind coming, still running from the fed, It's BOSS

[Ashanti:]
If you want it, I got it
That body on me, I got it
When you wake up, I got it
That ain't never leaving and I got it
Boy this body on lock and we can take it there
Anything that you think of, I got it right here

Take it to the edge, I got it
Throw it up if you got it
Put them bottles up if you got it
Keep spending that money like you got it
'Cause you may never get another night like this
So push it to the limit, if you about this life then live it

If your on it, like I'm on it
Then come on it, we gon' flaunt it
I'm gonna stand on top of the globe
I don't think you're ready yet, boy this thing is drippin' wet
Tell me what your tryng to do?
I can have you floating higher than what you got in that cup
I can tear that thing up, I can tear that thing up
Got you creepin up behind, as your feeling up on mine
Usually I wouldn't give you none but f*ck it, I'm on one

Yeah, yeah, yeah yeah, yeah, yeah

I got it, I got it, I got it, I got it

That body on me, I got it

Never Too Far Away

(iTunes Bonus Track)

Never too far away
I would take my heart right out of my chest
And place it in the palm of your hand
Just to show you how much I need you to keep breathing
How I walk a million miles barefoot
To hold your hand
And these bloody feet of mine will keep bleeding

[Chorus:]
And I will let nothing keep me away
And I will let nothing keep me from you babe
Oooh
Away [x5]
Never to walk away
Never too far away

I will crawl all the plates of hell
And cross the devil himself
Just to be by your side
For you I will

I would run across the bareness
And hunt the stars to hold you
And if the world were to end today
I would still find a way

[Chorus:]
And I will let nothing keep me away
And I will let nothing keep me from you babe
Oooh
Away [x5]
Never to walk away
Never too far away

I would take three planes and a spaceship just to meet you babe
And I would sail across the land
Just so I could see your face

[Chorus:]
And I will let nothing keep me away
And I will let nothing keep me from you babe
Oooh
Away [x5]
Never to walk away
Never too far away

Never too far away, away, away
Never too, never too, never too far away [x3]

And I will let nothing keep me away
And I will let nothing keep me from you babe
Oooh
Away [x5]
Never to walk away
Never too far away

And never too far from you baby
And I love you, I love you,
I want, I want you here with me

Said I would go anywhere
I would go anyplace
And never too far away
And never too far [x3]
Away from you
And never too far
