Craig David – Walking Away (US Version)

1 – I’m walking away
From the troubles in my life
I’m walking away
Oh, to find a better day

Repeat 1

Sometimes, some people get me wrong
When it’s something I’ve said or done
Sometimes, you feel there is no fun
That’s why you turn and run
But now I truly realize
Some people don’t wanna compromise
Well I saw them with my own eyes
Spreading those lies, yeah

2 – Well I don’t wanna live a lie
Too many sleepless nights
Not mentioning the fights
I’m sorry to say lady

Repeat 1

Well I’m so tired baby
Of things you say
You’re driving me away
Whispers in the powder room baby
Don’t listen to the games they play
Girl I thought you’d realized
I’m not like them other guys
Cuz I saw them with my own eyes
You should’ve been more wise babe

Repeat 2

Repeat 1 to fade

Seven Days craig david

On my way to see my friends
Who lived a couple blocks away from me (owh)
As I walked through the subway
It must have been about quarter past three
In front of me
Stood a beautiful honey with a beautiful body
She asked me for the time
I said it’d cost her her name
A six digit number & a date with me tomorrow at nine

Did she decline? no
Didn’t she mind? I don’t think so
Was it for real? damn sure
What was the deal? a pretty girl aged 24
So was she keen? she couldn’t wait
Cinnamon queen? let me update
What did she say? she said she’d love to
Rendezvous
She asked me what we were gonna do
Said we’d start with a bottle of moet for two

Chorus

Monday
Took her for a drink on tuesday
We were making love by wednesday
And on thursday & friday & saturday we chilled on sunday
I met this girl on monday
Took her for a drink on tuesday
We were making love by wednesday
And on thursday & friday & saturday we chilled on sunday

Verse 2

Nine was the time
Cos I’ll be getting mine
And she was looking fine
Smooth talker
She told me
She’d love to unfold me all night long
Ooh I loved the way she kicked it
From the front to back she flipped (back she flipped it, ooh the
Way she
Kicked it)
And I oh oh I yeah
Hope that she’d care
Cos I’m a man who’ll always be there

Ooh yeah
I’m not a man to play around baby
Ooh yeah
Cos a one night stand isn’t really fair
From the first impression girl hmm you don’t seem to be like that
Cos there’s no need to chat for there’ll be plenty for that
From the subway to my home
Endless ringing of my phone
When you feeling all alone
All you gotta do
Is just call me call me

Chorus

Monday
Took her for a drink on tuesday
We were making love by wednesday
And on thursday & friday & saturday we chilled on sunday
I met this girl on monday
Took her for a drink on tuesday
We were making love by wednesday
And on thursday & friday & saturday we chilled on sunday

Bridge

(break it down, uh break it down)
Since I met this special lady
Ooh yeah
I can’t get her of my mind
She’s one of a kind
And I ain’t about to deny it
It’s a special kind thing
With you-oh…….

Chorus

Monday
Took her for a drink on tuesday
We were making love by wednesday
And on thursday & friday & saturday we chilled on sunday
I met this girl on monday
Took her for a drink on tuesday
We were making love by wednesday
And on thursday & friday & saturday we chilled on sunday

CRAIG DAVID-RISE AND FALL

Sometimes in life you feel the fight is over,
And it seems as though the writings on the wall,
Superstar you finally made it,
But once your picture becomes tainted,
It’s what they call,
The rise and fall (x2)

I always said that I was gonna make it,
Now it’s plain for everyone to see,
But this game I’m in don’t take no prisoners,
Just casualties,
I know that everything is gonna change,
Even the friends I knew before me go,
But this dream is the life I’ve been searching for,
Started believing that I was the greatest,
My life was never gonna be the same,
Cause with the money came a different status,
That’s when things change,
Now I’m too concerned with all the things I own,
Blinded by all the pretty girls I see,
I’m beginning to lose my integrity

Sometimes in life you feel the fight is over,
And it seems as though the writings on the wall,
Superstar you finally made it,
But once your picture becomes tainted,
It’s what they call,
The rise and fall

I never used to be a troublemaker,
Now I don’t even wanna please the fans,
No autographs,
No interviews,
No pictures,
And less demands,
Given advice that was clearly wrong,
The type that seems to make me feel so right,
But some things you may find can take over your life,
Burnt all my bridges now I’ve run out of places,
And there’s nowhere left for me to turn,
Been caught in comprimising situations,
I should have learnt,
From all those times I didn’t walk away,
When I knew that it was best to go,
Is it too late to show you the shape of my heart,

Sometimes in life you feel the fight is over,
And it seems as though the writings on the wall,
Superstar you finally made it,
But once your picture becomes tainted,
It’s what they call,
The rise and fall

Now I know,
I made mistakes,
Think I don’t care,
But you don’t realise what this means to me,
So let me have,
Just one more chance,
I’m not the man I used to be,
Used to beeeeeeeeeee

Sometimes in life you feel the fight is over,
And it seems as though the writings on the wall,
Superstar you finally made it,
But once your picture becomes tainted,
It’s what they call,
The rise and fall (x4)

Craig David – World Filled With Love

Saw some pictures in the paper,
of a girl I’d met the day before.
I couldn’t believe that hours later,
I had reporters knockin at my door,
But I used to dream about,
the life I’m living now and,
I didn’t think I’d miss those things from the past,
and I’m not afraid of leaving,
or letting go of what I had,
cause I realize that now there’s no turning back.

Cause I’m caught living in a world filled with love,
so when tear drops fall from me like rain from above,
I can brush my troubles away,
know that deep down inside,
I got sun shining in my life.

I used to think I could get better,
my girlfriends always used to get me wrong.
Some just sent messages, love letters,
but those kinda feelings never lasted long.
Cause now the only love I find’s within a castle made of sand,
and when the tide goes out it’s swept away.
Though I got my peace of mind,
and time is firmly on my side,
and through the battles I can safely say…

Cause I’m caught living in a world filled with love,
so when tear drops fall from me like rain from above,
I can brush my troubles away,
know that deep down inside,
I got sun shining in my life.

(Music Break)

Cause I mean I’m caught living in a world filled with love,
so when tear drops fall from me like rain from above,
I can brush my troubles away,
know that deep down inside,
I got sun shining in my life.
I’m caught living in a world filled with love,
so when tear drops fall from me like rain from above,
I can brush my troubles away,
know that deep down inside,
I got sun shining in my life.

Craig David Do You Believe In Love?

Mmmmm no ohhh ah yeah

Just one day
If I could hold you in my arms
Close to my heart where you belong
Love of my life you really are
Still be showering you with kisses like snow in winter
Remember back in the day we were like best of friends
But we were falling in love we never could pretend
Night after night we used to talk about me and you
The things we’d do together forever?

Do you believe in love?
And the promise that it brings
That you’ll never grow apart
Well that’s what she said to me
Why did you have to go?
We were inseparable
You and me will always be together for eternity

Just one day
If I could touch your face again
Words can’t describe how I’m feeling
If I could turn back the hands of time
I’d still be holding on wishes that you left behind
Remember moments when there was nothing better than
A stroll in the park walking hand in hand
I’ll never forget the times we talked about me and you
The things we do together forever

Do you believe in love?
And the promise that it brings
That you’ll never grow apart
Well that’s what she said to me
Why did you have to go?
We were inseparable
You and me will always be together for eternity

The words you said to me before you slipped away
Are still with me girl to this very day yeah
In everything I do to everything I say
You’ll always be the sunshine in my life
And yes I believe in love

Do you believe in love?
And the promise that it brings
That you’ll never grow apart
Well that’s what she said to me
Why did you have to go?
We were inseparable
You and me will always be together for eternity [repeat]
