"Beautiful Inside" Lyrics

Doesn't matter about the clothes
that your dressed in
It doesn't matter 'bout the
colour of your skin
All that matters is you're
beautiful inside

Uhah yeah

Just because you've got
the looks and the body
Just because you've got
the time and the money
Still remember to be
beautiful inside

Looking from the inside out
Tell me what you find
Nothing means a thing
if your not, beautiful inside

Try givin' up, The make up
Try givin' up, The dressin' up
Try givin' up, The pushouts
And try livin' up
To higher aspirations

You don't have to be
a victim of your ego
No you don't have to be self centred or deceitful
You'll make it happen
if your, beautiful inside

Looking from the inside out
Tell me what you find
Nothing means a thing
if your not, beautiful inside

Try givin' up, The make up
Try givin' up, The dressin' up
Try givin' up, The pushouts
And try livin' up
To higher aspirations

Try living with a heart to give
instead of always taking
Respect each others right to be
because we should all be making
Little time in all our lives is full of inspiration
Keep reaching for
Higher Aspirations

Try givin' up, The make up
Try givin' up, The dressin' up
Try givin' up, The pushouts
And try livin' up
To higher aspirations

Try givin' up, The make up
Try givin' up, The dressin' up
Try givin' up, The pushouts
And try livin' up
To higher aspirations

"2 Faced" Lyrics

(Who does she think she is)
(I dunno)
(Do you reckon they're real?)
(Nah)
(Hi, girls)
(Hi, Louise, you look great)

Ow, ow, twisted and deceitful
All those two-faced people
Taking me for some kind of fool
Ow, ow, pretending to be so nice
Let me give you my advice
I don't need you, ooh
Friends in disguise
Dressed up in lies
It's an act that you're playing
Ow, ow, first you recognise me
Then you criticise me, what's goin on

Stop your bitchin'
'Coz you're so sad
Bitchin' behind my back
Honey, I don't need that
So kick it to the curb
Because I heard you're two-faced
Tryin' to get in my place
Work too hard to make mistakes
So stop your bitchin' on me

Ow, ow, they're so narrow-minded
Truth is so one-sided
They're just counterfeits
Ow, ow, hot and cold you're blowing
Sheep in Wolf clothing
And who are you trying to kid, eh
Two-faced people are so shallow
Put yourself in my place
Ow, ow, the fairy tales you're spinning
Sounding so convincing
But I'm at a loss

Stop your bitchin'
'Coz you're so sad
Bitchin' behind my back
Honey, I don't need that
So kick it to the curb
Because I heard you're two-faced
Tryin' to get in my place
Work too hard to make mistakes
So stop your bitchin' on me

Poison words are spoken
My faith in you is broken
But I'll make it on my own

Ow, ow, twisted and deceitful
All those two-faced people
Taking me for some kind of fool
Ow, ow, they're so narrow-minded
Truth is so one-sided
But honey you're wrong

Stop your bitchin'
'Coz you're so sad
Bitchin' behind my back
Honey, I don't need that
So kick it to the curb
Because I heard you're two-faced
Tryin' to get in my place
Work too hard to make mistakes
So stop your bitchin' on me

Stop your bitchin'
'Coz you're so sad
Bitchin' behind my back
Honey, I don't need that
So kick it to the curb
Because I heard you're two-faced
Tryin' to get in my place
Work too hard to make mistakes
So stop your bitchin' on me

Stop this hipocracy
You're criticising me
'Coz I don't wanna be
With two-faced people, yeah
(Ya know, she's probably talking behind our backs right now)
(She probably is, she's like that)
(She's two-faced)
(You never know what she's gonna say, hahaha)
(I cant' believe you said that about me)
(Believe it, honey)

Egyptian Queen

Because I had a dream
I was an egyptian queen
Floating down the nile
In serious style
I thank the sun
For making you my king
And I never wanna wake up from this, dream

I close my eyes and I fall to sleep
In the twilight hour, something happened to me
When I woke up so surprised to see
That I had become and egyptian queen
I don't wanna stop this dreaming
I just wanna keep believing

Because I had a dream

Floating down the nile
In serious style
I thank the sun
For making you my king
And I never wanna wake up from this, dream

In my adventure your holding me
My egyptian god, your my rameses
And we'll get lost in this mystery
To the big romance won't you come with me
I don't wanna stop this dreaming
I just wanna keep believing
This dream will never go away
Not even in the light of day

Because I had a dream
I was an egyptian queen
Floating down the nile
In serious style
I thank the sun
For making you my king
And I never wanna wake up from this, dream
No, no never

Can I be your own egyptian queen
I will never tire with my rameses beside me, yeah
Let me be your own egyptian queen
We can live forever in this golden fantasy

Because I had a dream
I was an egyptian queen
Floating down the nile
Oh yeah
In serious style

For making you my king
And I never wanna wake up from this, dream

For Your Eyes Only

Turn the tv off
Let's unplug the phone
Pretend that there is no, one home
Turn the lights down low
I'll draw the blinds
I think it's time to stop the show
Baby relax, lay back on the bed
You don't have to move, I'll do the rest

This is for your eyes only
This is for your eyes only, yeah
I'm takin' off my clothes
Baby I'm in control
This is for your eyes alone

Take it nice and slow
Hold back the flow
I want you to last all night
You have to go on, you got to be strong
Boy I wanna do you right
Look but don't touch
I want you to plead
Don't close your eyes, I want you to see

This is for your eyes only
This is for your eyes only, yeah
There's a mirror on the wall
Baby let's do it all
This is for your eyes alone

Oh it feels so good
Just like I knew, it would
Keep it going on strong
And we'll go on and on and on

Oh yeah, oh yeah
Oh yeah, oh yeah

Baby relax, lay back on the bed
You don't have to move I'll do the rest

This is for your eyes only
This is for your eyes only, yeah
I'm takin' off my clothes
Baby I'm in control
This is for your eyes alone

For your eyes only
For your eyes only
For your eyes only

The Best Thing

Let's creep inside the face to a woman's mind
A million years of history is a what you'll find
A loving sister, sexy mother
Your best friend whilst still your lover
Take it from me I know what's best
About being a woman

The best thing about being a woman
Keep you guessing 24/7
The best thing about being a woman
When your baby is from heaven
The best thing about being a woman
Oh yeah
Is turning it on with remote control
Switching it off when it's time to go

Taking advantage of the gifts we have
I don't mean we have to treat our men so bad
We know what kind of men we need
The kind of man who likes to please
We won't fake it just to make it
You may think that I'm a tease
But take it from me
It's the best thing about being a woman.

The best thing about being a woman
Keep you guessing 24/7
The best thing about being a woman
When your baby is from heaven
The best thing about being a woman
Oh yeah
You don't have to take it lying down
'cos nobody's pushing us around

A cook in the kitchen
A saint if you need her
A whore in the bedroom
Honey I'll be your teacher
Taxi driver
Child minder
Nine to fiver
Sugar liar
Soul provider
Born survivor
Like my mother

The best thing about being a woman
Keep you guessing 24/7
The best thing about being a woman
When your baby is from heaven
The best thing about being a woman
Oh yeah
Is turning it on when the lights are low
Switching it off when it's time to go
It's the best damn thing yeah
The best thing about being a woman
It's the best damn thing yeah


Lost

Give me back my smile
Cos it's taring me inside
Your still so far away
What happened can't we change
To make it all worthwhile
You have every piece of me
I'll promise you anything you need
We have so much to loose
Whatever can I do to make you see

I'll be lost
I'll be lost without you
I'll be lost
I'll feel lost without you

I can't go on this way
All these crazy games we play
Without you
We've made our sacrifice
I need some good advice
To bring back yesterday

I keep talking to myself
Cos your mind is somewhere else
Tryin' to find the words to say
The words get in the way
No poetry in pain

I'll be lost
I'll be lost without you
I'll be lost
I'll feel lost without you

Give me back my smile
Cos it's taring me inside
I can't go on this way
Cos it's taring me inside

I'll be lost
I'll be lost without you
I'll be lost
I'll feel lost without you

Beautiful Inside

Doesn't matter bout the clothes that you're dressed in
It doesn't matter bout the colour of your skin
All that matters is you're
Beautiful inside (uh-huh, yeah)

It just because you've got the look and the body
It just because you've got the time and the money
Still remember to be beautiful inside, hay (beautiful inside, hay)
Looking from the inside out tell me what you find
Nothing means a thing if you're not beautiful inside

Try giving up (try giving up) the make-up
Try giving up, the dressing up (giving up, girl)
Try giving up (try giving up) the pushouts
And try living up to higher aspirations

You'll make it happen if you're beautiful inside, hay, yeah
Looking from the inside out tell me what you find
Nothing means a thing if you're not beautiful inside

Bed Time

It's bedtime
Illogical when we fuss and fight
Magical when we kiss goodnight
I don't wanna fight you no more
Baby don't fight no more

Impossible when we fight to win
Sexual when we're skin on skin
What are we arguing for
Don't you know
It's close to midnight
We've been fighting too long
Let's say we're sorry
And admit we're both wrong

Now come and kiss me
Come and kiss me goodnight
Let's make up before bedtime
Some sexual healing will help us unwind
So let's make up before, bedtime

Sensible when we take time out
Irrational when we scream and shout
You know you're all that I need
Baby, you're all I need
So natural when we're one on one
Joy a ball when we're making up
So bring your body to me
Body to me

Don't you know it's getting late now
And too much has been said
Call it a night baby
Let's go to bed

Now come and kiss me
Come and kiss me goodnight
Let's make up before bedtime
Some sexual healing will help us unwind
So let's make up before bedtime

Come on now it's bedtime
Come on now it's bedtime
Do-do do do-do-do-do
Do-do do do-do-do-do do
Let's make up before bedtime
Do-do do do-do-do-do
Do-do do do-do-do-do do
Let's make up before bedtime

Now come and kiss me
Come and kiss me goodnight
Let's make up before bedtime
Some sexual healing will help us unwind
So let's make up before bedtime

Now come and kiss me
Come and kiss me goodnight
Let's make up before bedtime
Some sexual healing will help us unwind
So let's make up before bedtime

Now come and kiss me
Come and kiss me goodnight
Let's make up before bedtime
Some sexual healing will help us unwind
So let's make up before bedtime

A risk that she takes but

Becomes a teenage queen

Take You There

Ahh, ah-ahh

While the candle cries itself to sleep
Time hides behind the moon
Tonight
We speak of promises to keep
Uncovering the truth inside
Your my sweetness and likeness
I follow the brightness
That pushes all my fears aside

And baby I'll take you there
If ever you may stop believing
I'll take you there
Never loose faith
Whatever your wish, I will grant it
You are the core I'm the answer
You know I'll take you there
Yeah
Ah ah-ahh

While shakespeare wrote the book of love
I don't believe he ever felt like us
Our passions collide
No words can describe
The diamond shots of love in our eyes

And baby I'll take you there
If ever you may stop believing
I'll take you there
Never loose faith
Whatever your wish, I will grant it
You are the core I'm the answer
You know I'll take you there
Oh yes oh yeah
I'll take you there

Back to the place
That we first discovered our love
Our hearts and our mind
Will lead us back in time
Oh, I'll take you there

Oh, oh yeah-eah
Uoh uhyeah yeah-eah

Your my sweetness and likeness
I follow the brightness
That pushes all my fears aside

And baby I'll take you there
If ever you may stop believing
I'll take you there
Never loose faith
Whatever your wish, I will grant it
You are the core I'm the answer
I'll take you there
Oh yes, oh yeah
I'll take you there

Take you there

While shakespeare wrote the book of love
I don't believe he ever felt like us
