Intro: LL Cool J
it's been a long time
people change
I missed you
word up
I used to always think about you
even though sometimes I see you
and I try to ignore you
deep inside I was thinkin' about you
what'd you think

Verse 1: Tamia, LL Cool J

you are my life
I have to go on
havin' me any way you want me baby
just love me til the tension's gone
and don't you come too soon

I'm patient I never come too soon
when I kissed you you said it was the same old tune
but I missed you my life was filled with gloom
I was hopeless sittin' in an empty room
when you re-appeared I was back in the mix
I put the key up in the lock cause true love fixed
all the drama got to stop baby no more tricks
my broken heart was addicted but now it's fixed
and I cherish you forever believe me you
you's a priceless treasure from my point of veiw
it took time to change I'll admit that
my back in the days love I had to get back

Chorus: Tamia

you are my starship
come take me up tonight
and don't be late
you are my starship
come take me up tonight
and don't be late
and don't you come too soon
(never that)

Verse 2: LL Cool J

I never thought that I would ever lay beside you again
tastin' every inch plus being your friend
romantic nights with shootin' stars and full moons
kiss the rose better til it come full bloom
can you feel it passions overflows in waves
keep it steady providin' everything you crave
now you ready I like that my love you save
I love it when a bad girl agrees to behave
it's the motion that makes your love affair complete
but devotion makes it all twice as sweet
back together reunited bonded once more
before I was hestitant but now I'm sure

Chorus (repeat 2x)

Outro: LL Cool J

well now you know how I feel
and I definetly know how you feel
word up
I'm feelin' this
word up
cause wit' you by my side
I'm a take it to the top yeah

The Last Dance
Within Temptation
@[Kahiara:35260] Actually I think the husband passed away, "She sang for you last night She heard you were calling" Many people say they have felt, heard, or seen their loved ones after they have passed. "Don't be scared now Close your eyes She holds guard tonight Go on forward no remorse Life will take it's course" This is said to the late husband by a third part (never named), who encourages him to pass on. Because life will eventually continue. The phrase "holds guard" refers to the ( ) which is a Christian ceremony held after someone dies. Now it is usually held right after the funeral, but in most celtiic countries the wake is held before the funeral. "She danced with you last night so you will remember All you have shared, a lifetime." This sentence feels as if the only thing it wants to convey is their history together, namely, husband and wife. For the rest it just refers back to the first verse.

Alma Matters
The man has pseudo-friends who constantly criticize his actions. They moralize him, "teach" him and advise him to make a significant change in his life, because the way he is and what he does is not what they say it should be. They may find his life lame or immoral. They hold themselves up as role models. The man replies that he will make his own choices and decisions and he does not agree to unconditionally make himself under the influence of questionable quality advice. He justifies this by saying that there is always someone for whom he will be important, no matter what he does and no matter what he is. Although it is not said directly, I read it as meaning that he will always be important to himself in every way and he will always have his own support. "Everyone is different and maybe that's a good thing, but you exceeded that mark 1000 times" - I remember very well how sad the words I once heard (from my peers and it was in negative context) at school made me feel.
