"elevator" as written by Rodney Roy Jerkins and Crystal Johnson....
If we can stop fighting each other
Long enough for us to see that, see that, see that
That we are stronger together than separate babe
You gotta believe that -lieve that -lieve that
But you love me today, don't want me around tomorrow
Every time you change your mind
I follow caught up, all up in your maze and I'm so dizzy babe
Can't keep going back and forth on these waves
I'm getting sea sick, sea sick, sea sick

Like the way we were before and I wanna know
If we can go back to the days when we was close
Sometimes I think I'm so low
Think you don't want me no more
And I've gotta get up off this see-saw

Like an elevator, we go up, and we go down
Down, down, like an elevator
We touch the sky and touch the ground
Ground, ground like an elevator
You're stuck on one while I'm pressing three
Then we end up on the fourth floor
And then we disagree
Then you keep on blamin' me
But I wish that you would see that
I'm just trying to elevate you
Like an elevator

Take you higher, t- t- take you higher
That I'm just trying to elevate you
Like an elevator
Take you higher, t- t- take you higher
That I'm just trying to elevate you
Like an elevator

And I feel like we're speaking two different languages
It's hard to read ya, read ya, read ya
But I know if you at least try to make it half way
I swear that I'll meet ya, meet ya, meet ya
But we can't have a conversation without beefing
Yellin' back and forth for no good reason
I won't let you leave and you keep asking me to stay
One of us better figure out what we want
'Cause I'm getting a headache, headache, headache

Like the way we were before and I wanna know
If we can go back to the days when we was close
Sometimes I think I'm so low
Think you don't want me no more
And I've gotta get up off this see-saw

Like an elevator, we go up, and we go down
Down, down, like an elevator
We touch the sky and touch the ground
Ground, ground like an elevator
You're stuck on one while I'm pressing three
Then we end up on the fourth floor
And then we disagree
Then you keep on blamin' me
But I wish that you would see that
I'm just trying to elevate you
Like an elevator

Oh if there's any man who understands what I'm saying
Won't you help me
Say yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh there's gotta be some women who feeling the way I'm feeling
Say yeah, yeah, yeah
I'll take the blame if it that'll make this go stop
I'll hold for you if we can make it to the top
But we gotta find a way to break down these walls baby
I'm waitin' on you, stop waitin' on me
Damn this elevator!

Like an elevator, we go up, and we go down
Down, down, like an elevator
We touch the sky and touch the ground
Ground, ground like an elevator
You're stuck on one while I'm pressing three
Then we end up on the fourth floor
And then we disagree
Then you keep on blamin' me
But I wish that you would see that
I'm just trying to elevate you
Like an elevator

Take you higher, t- t- take you higher
That I'm just trying to elevate you
Like an elevator
Take you higher, t- t- take you higher
That I'm just trying to elevate you
Like an elevator

    General Commentloooove this song. esp Melody's bit
    'Like the way we were before' etc. Really really catchy. Maybe it's a relationship thats a bit topsy turvy? and she wants it to go back to how good she knows it can be.

    General CommentI think the song is on about a relationship which is just going up and down like a rollercoaster were theres never a level playing field. 'You stuck on 1, while I'm pressin 3' I think that line is good to explain it as in my eyes its saying there never on a level playing field and that they never see eye to eye because there always on different levels to eachother. Love PCD! Keep it up girls!

    General CommentThe relationship is constantly changing, its either really bad or really good.
    At one point I think that we can all relate to it, I know I can.
    My favourite part is:
    "Like the way we were before
    And I wanna know if we can go
    Back to the days when we was close"
