"He Can Only Hold Her" vs. "Doo-Wop" lyrics - Andra Day

(originally by Amy Winehouse & Lauryn Hill)

Woah-ooh
Ooh, woah ooh

He can only hold her for so long
The lights are on but no one's home
She's so vacant
Her soul is taken
He thinks "What's she running from?"

Now how can he have her heart
When it got stole?
So he tries to pacify her
Cuz what's inside her never dies

Even if she's content in his warmth
She is plagued with urgency
Searching kisses
The man she misses
The man that he longs to be

Now how can he have her heart
When it got stole?
So he tries to pacify her
Cuz what's inside her never dies

So he tries to pacify her
Cuz what's inside her, it never dies

So he tries to pacify her
But what's inside her never dies

Burn lyrics - Andra Day

(from "The Hamilton Mixtape")

I saved every letter you wrote me
From the moment I read them
I knew you were mine, said you were mine
I thought you were mine

Do you know what Angelica said
When we saw your first letter arrive?
She said, "Be careful with that one, love
He will do what it takes to survive."

You and your words flooded my senses
Your sentences left me defenseless
You built me palaces out of paragraphs
You built cathedrals

I'm re-reading the letters you wrote me
I'm searching and scanning for answers
In every line, for some kind of sign
And when you were mine
The world seemed to

Burn
Burn

You published the letters she wrote you
You told the whole world how you brought
This girl into our bed
In clearing your name, you have ruined our lives

Do you know what Angelica said
When she read what you'd done?
She said, "You have married an Icarus
He has flown too close to the sun."

You and your words, obsessed with your legacy
Your sentences border on senseless
And you are paranoid in every paragraph
How they perceive you
You, you, you...

I'm erasing myself from this narrative
Let future historians wonder how Eliza
Reacted when you broke her heart
You have torn it all apart
I am watching it

Burn
Watching it burn

The world has no right to my heart
The world has no place in our bed
They don't get to know what I said
I'm burning the memories
Burning the letters that might have redeemed you

You forfeit all rights to my heart
You forfeit the place in our bed
You sleep in your office instead
With only the memories
Of when you were mine

I hope that you burn

In The Room: Cruisin' lyrics - Andra Day

(originally by Smokey Robinson)

Ooh, yeah baby
Ooh, yeah
Ooh, ooh

Baby let's cruise, away from here
Hey, don't be confused, the way is clear
And if you want it you got it, you'll be fine
This is not a one night stand, baby
Just let the music take your mind (hey)
Just release and you will find

You're gonna fly away
Glad your goin' my way
I love it when we're cruisin' together
The music is played for love
Cruisin' is made for love
I love it when we're cruising together

No, no, no, no
Oh, yeah
Ooh-oh
Na-na-na-na
So good

Baby tonight belonged to us, (ooh, no, no)
Everything's right, do what you must, my lover
And inch by inch we get closer and closer
To every little part of each other

You're gonna fly away, (fly away)
Glad your goin' my way, (my way)
I love it when we're cruisin' together
The music is played for love (it is played)
Cruisin' is made for love
I love it when we're cruisin' together

You're gonna fly away
Glad you gone my way
I love it when we're cruisin' together
The music is played for love
Cruisin' is made for love
I love it when we're cruisin' together

Lose Yourself lyrics - Andra Day

(originally by Eminem)

His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy
There's vomit on his sweater already, mom's spaghetti
He's nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready to drop bombs,
But he keeps on forgetting what he wrote down,
The whole crowd goes so loud
He opens his mouth, but the words won't come out
He's choking how, everybody's joking now
The clock's run out, time's up over, bloah!
Snap back to reality, oh there goes gravity
Oh, there goes Rabbit, he choked
He's so mad, but he won't give up that
Easy, no
He won't have it, he knows his whole back's to these ropes
It don't matter, he's dope
He knows that, but he's broke
He's so stagnant, he knows
When he goes back to his mobile home, that's when it's
Back to the lab again, yo
This whole rhapsody
He better go capture this moment and hope it don't pass him

[Hook:]
You better lose yourself, all in the music
The moment you own it
You better lose yourself, all in the music
The moment you own it
Before it's gone

The soul's escaping, through this hole that is gaping
This world is mine for the taking
Make me king, as we move toward a new world order
A normal life is boring, but superstardom's close to post mortem
It only grows harder, only grows hotter
He blows us all over these hoes is all on him
Coast to coast shows, he's known as the globetrotter
Lonely roads, God only knows
He's grown farther from home, he's no father
He goes home and barely knows his own daughter
But hold your nose 'cause here goes the cold water
His hoes don't want him no more, he's cold product
They moved on to the next schmoe who flows
He nose dove and sold nada
So the soap opera is told and unfolds
I suppose it's old partner but the beat goes on
Da da dum da dum da da

[Hook]

No Make Up lyrics - Andra Day

(originally by Kendrick Lamar)

I love the way you put it on your eyes
The roses on your face light up the sky
Those lips are colorful all of the time
And girl, that's fine, but I wanna know do you mind
No make-up to...

I know she 'bout to ask me how she look
I tell her beautiful, and how long it took
For you to put it on, it was early in the morn'
She resembled a model out of a Mac book
Concentrating on the way the eyeliner thickens
I stand behind her and try to figure her vision
Of prettiness, the wittiness, of colors on her skin tone
Her complexion in a direction I've outgrown
Damn girl, why so much?
You 'bout to blow your cover when you cover up
Don't you know your imperfections is a wonderful blessing
From heaven, is where you got it from
I love your smile, you can do it without style
From your lips, all the way to your eyebrows
It's the beauty in her but when the make-up occur
I don't see it, all I see is a blur

I love the way you put it on your eyes
The roses on your face light up the sky
Those lips are colorful all of the time
And girl, that's fine, but I wanna know do you mind
No make-up to...

I know she 'bout to ask me how she look
I tell her beautiful, and how long it took
For you to put it on, it was early in the morn'
She resembled a model out of a Mac book
Concentrating on the way my eyeliner thickens
You stand behind me and try to figure my vision
Of prettiness, the wittiness of colors on my skin tone
My complexion in a direction I've outgrown
I feel like it's not enough
I can never put on too much make-up
Yeah, I know your imperfections I be constantly stressing
From him is where I get it from, they tell me I need to
Smile at least once in a while
I hate my lips, my nose, my eyebrows
It's the beauty in me, but what he don't see
Is that I had a black ey...

I know you see me on the radio, true
I know you see me on the radio, true
But you still don't may me no attention.
I know you check me on the radio, true
I know you see me on the radio, true

You ain't gotta get drunk to have fun
You ain't gotta get drunk to have fun...

Stand Up For Something lyrics - Andra Day (feat. Common)

[from "Marshall" soundtrack]

You can have all the money in your hands
All the possessions anyone can ever have
But it's all worthless treasure
True worth is only measured not by what you got
But what you got in your heart
You can have, you can have everything
But what does it, what does it mean

It all means nothing
If you don't stand up for something
You can't just talk the talk
You got to walk that walk, yes you do
It all means nothing
If you don't stand up for something
And I'll stand up for you
And I'll stand up for you
Yes I will, yes I will

You do the best to do the best that you can do
Then you can look in the mirror
Proud of who's looking back at you
Define the life you're living
Not by what you take but what you're giving
And if you bet on love, there's no way you'll ever lose
Take a stand, make a stand for what's right
It's always worth, always worth the fight

It all means nothing
If you don't stand up for something
You can't just talk the talk
You got to walk that walk, yes you do
It all means nothing
If you don't stand up for something
And I'll stand up for you

Self respect, dignity
If that's all you got
Then you got all you need
And without that you don't have a thing

[Common:]
Rise up, love, lift your hands
I stand with you cuz I understand
Ain't here to judge, just to take a stand
The greater plan's the Creator's plan
Let's all rise like the day began
Reach out and touch with the Savior's hand
On rock we stand like this native land
Let the ways of love be the ways of man

It all means nothing
If you don't stand for something
You can't just talk the talk
You got to walk that walk, yes you do
It all means nothing
If you don't stand up for something
And I'll stand up for you
(Stand up, stand for you)
I'll stand up for you
(Stand up)
And I'll stand up for you
(Stand up, stand for you, stand up)
Stand up for you
Yes I will, yes I will

The Only Way Out lyrics - Andra Day

[from "Ben-Hur" soundtrack]

If you could look inside my life
And use my eyes, would you pity me?
Would you see the desperate nights
And all the lies that brought me to my knees
I keep thinking that I have to make you fall
The way I fell from your betrayal to bring me peace of mind
I will let you move along, just walk away
And wear a cape like you're some hero

I can't hear love cause we're at war
And revenge is so loud and the drums are so proud
But oh, I'm in a cage and I hear mercy say "I'm here now"
And it's the only way out
I can't hear love cause we're at war
But revenge is so loud and the drums are so proud
But I'm still in a cage and I hear mercy say now
It's the only way out

I used to hear my father say, "Counterplay ends in defeat"
And I said I'd never be that way
Tried to make you pay cause it would cost me
But you owe me so much more than what you gave to this
I guess every story twists
People tell me let it go, oh, and forget

I can't hear love cause we're at war
And revenge is so loud and the drums are so proud
But oh, I'm in a cage and I hear mercy say "I'm here now"
And it's the only way out
I can't hear love cause we're at war
But revenge is so loud and the drums are so proud
But I'm still in a cage and I hear mercy say now
It's the only way

Mercy's the only way out
Mercy gave me my way out

What The World Needs Now Is Love lyrics - Andra Day

(originally by Jackie DeShannon)

Lord, we don't need another mountain
There are mountains and hillsides enough to climb
There are oceans and rivers enough to cross
Enough to last 'till the end of time

What the world needs now is love, sweet love
It's the only thing that there's just too little of
What the world needs now is love, sweet love
No, not just for some but for everywhere

Lord, we don't need another meadow
There are cornfields and wheat fields enough to grow
There are sunbeams and moonbeams enough to shine
Listen, Lord, if you want to know

What the world needs now is love, sweet love
It's the only thing that there's just too little of
What the world needs now is love, sweet love
Oh, no, not just for some, but for everyone, everyone

What the world needs now is love, sweet love
It's the only thing that there's just too little of
What the world needs now is love, sweet love
No, not just for some, but for everyone

Not just for some, but for everyone, everyone

What the world needs now is love, sweet love
(World needs now
Love, sweet love)
What the world needs now is love, sweet love
(World needs now
Love, sweet love)
World needs
What the world needs
What the world needs is love, sweet love
Just the love, sweet love
Simply love, sweet love
Love, love, love

What the world needs now
What the world needs

What the world needs now

What the world needs now is love, sweet love

The Light That Never Fails lyrics - Andra Day

[from "Meru" soundtrack]

When the cold bites your bones
And gets in your heart
It can make you feel hopeless
And fear will come to steal your sun and make it dark
But don’t believe you’re lonely

We’ve all had that moment when our shoulders sink
And we sit back and think
We could just run

But we’re not born to chase the fading light
We’re not born to fall and lose the fight
Never letting go
Oh no oh
I’m askin’ you to lift me, lift me higher than I ever been
Hold your breath and say you’re gonna come with me
We were born to follow
The light that never fails

You’re scared to fight
You’re scared to climb
Afraid to die
But I can be your courage
And help you see you’ve already won this

We all have that moment when our head hangs low
We question if we should go
Or turn back and run

But we’re not born to chase the fading light
We’re not born to fall and lose the fight
Never letting go
Oh no oh
I’m askin’ you to lift me, lift me higher than I ever been
Hold your breath and say you’re gonna come with me
We were born to follow
The light that never fails

Come along
We’re settin’ sail
Never looking back again

We’re not born to chase the fading light
We’re not born to fall and lose the fight
Never letting go
Oh no oh
I’m askin’ you to lift me, lift me higher than I ever been
Hold your breath and say you’re gonna come with me
We were born to follow
The light that never fails
The light that never fails
We were born to follow
The light that never fails
Light that never fails
The light that never fails
