Super Chris lyrics - Chrisette Michele

Don't wake me up too early in the morning
I really need my tea, some watermelon please so sweet
I got a problem with the break of dawning
A diva really does need her sleep

I'm brave, I'm bold, but first I need my TV
A little bit of news, a couple of cartoons, yes please
Check instagram and how its with a post things
I wonder what the world thinks of me

Am I a superstar? Oh
Is that who I are? Oh ah
Some Superstar
No not really, though not really, not at all
I'm this, a Super Chris
(Aha, ah yes, a Super Duper Chris)
(I am, my best, like the Only Be Chris)

I'm insecure, I'm really only normal
Some days I,m really cute, some days I,m really brutally nut
Some days I'm free, some days I'm really formal, yeah
Depending if the wind blows or stops, uh

Is it okay that I write what I think for a living
Wouldnt you say that my jobs pretty great, I think so
I like the song, maybe I'll sing along with one heart
Unity is why I make art, yeah

Cuz I'm a super star
Is that who I are?
Some Superstar
No not really, though not really, not at all
I'm this, a Super Chris
(Aha, ah yes, a Super Duper Chris)

Make Us One lyrics - Chrisette Michele (feat. The Rich Hipster Chorus)

Oh God, make us one,
One color, one race to run.
Many people, many hands - one voice, many men.

Oh God, fight the war.
Make us blind, see no more.
Many nations in one land - one voice, many men.

Oh God, give us free - no oppression, raise unity
Colorism, dark and tan - one voice, many men.

[x2]
Oh God, make us one
One color, one race to run.
Many people, many hands - one voice, many men.

Oh God, hear our prayer - black and tan, boy and man.
Oh, God, give us a rhythm
To make a decision to have no division.

Oh God, fight the war
Make us blind, see no more
Many nations in one land - one voice, many man.

Be In Love lyrics - Chrisette Michele

[Intro:]
I can do it, I can do it
I wanna be in love

[Verse 1:]
Love wasn't good
Last time I tried
Kinda fatal
Lost my pride
I'm a trooper
I'm alright
I wanna love again, try one more time
I can do it

[Chorus:]
Be in love
Yea, I'm gonna do it, yea I'm gonna do it again
Think of what you say to me, think of what you say to me when I'm alone
Yea I wanna be, yea I wanna be straight forward
I'm a fall in love all over
Yea, I wanna be in love

[Verse 2:]
I'm a hold my head up
I won't give in
I'm a share my all again
Love rock my world
Not afraid to fall again
I wanna love again, try one more time
I can do it

[Chorus:]
Be in love
Yea, I'm gonna do it, yea I'm gonna do it again
Think of what you say to me, think of what you say to me when I'm alone
Yea I wanna be, yea I wanna be straight forward
I'm a fall in love all over
Yea, I wanna be in love

[Bridge:]
Love is gonna come on back
It's gonna hold me down
It's gonna put me first days time
Love is gonna feel so right
Gonna love up high, it's gonna put me high
Try one more time

[Chorus: x2]
Be in love
Yea, I'm gonna do it, yea I'm gonna do it again
Think of what you say to me, think of what you say to me when I'm alone

A Couple Of Forevers lyrics - Chrisette Michele

I see it clear, my heart is here
We got each other, let's take it from there
And if I could I'd love up you forever at time, oh, oh, oh
What we been through no one else knows
Cause all that matters is how far this goes
And it will go until it starts again, oh, oh

Me and you are built like armor
Nothing can stop love from loving on us
You know I'm not asking for much

Just a couple of forevers
A couple of forevers
I'm the only one, you're the only one
Together 'til never

I'm talking about forever
Just a couple of forevers
I'm the only one, you're the only one
Together 'til never

It can get hard, damn it gets rough
It can get crazy but not for us
Guess we gotta struggle just to stay apart

Me and you are built like armor
Nothing can stop love from loving on us
You know I'm not asking for much

Just a couple of forevers
A couple of forevers oh, ooh
I'm the only one, you're the only one
Together 'til never

Oh, I'm talking about forever
Just a couple of forevers
A couple of forevers, oh
I'm the only one, you're the only one
Together 'til never, never never

Can you see it, oh oh ooh oh
Can you see the signs from above
It's so blinding,
There's no denying

You and me are built like armor
Nothing can stop love from loving on us
And I'm not asking you for much
A couple of forevers
Ever, ever
I'm the only one
I'm the only one, you're the only one
Together 'til never
Together 'til never
Ever,
Forever and ever, and ever
Ever,
Forever and ever, and ever
I'm the only one, you're the only one
Together 'til never
Together 'til never

Let Me Win lyrics - Chrisette Michele

I think I need a lifeline
It's like I'm in a crazy game
And I don't have the words to say
To win this guy affection
I might need a lifetime
I'll never know the perfect play
Hitting this day by day
But I've got good intentions
Look me in the eye
Do you think I'm fly?
I can tell you're into me
So why you acting shy?
Lay down all your cards
I won't make it hard
Let me be the winner of your heart, whoa

This game is like a gamble
Here's my heart to handle
Need you to be gentle
You should let me win
I'm not sure how to play it
Don't know what to say
I'm tryna catch a break
You should let me win, oh, oh, oh
You should let me win, oh, oh, oh
Uh, whoa

I never been a loser, and I don't wanna be one now
I always give away somehow,
Why should this be different?
I felt it when I kissed you
Drove me just a little bit wild
I always knew I liked your style
I never thought I would be with ya
Look me in the eye,
Do you think I'm fly?
I can tell you're into me
So why you acting shy?
Lay down all your cards
I won't make it hard
Let me be the winner of your heart, whoa

This game is like a gamble
Here's my heart to handle
Need you to be gentle
You should let me win
Not sure how to play it
Don't know what to say
I'm tryna catch a break
You should let me win, oh, oh, oh
You should let me win, oh, oh, oh
Uh, whoa.

Love Won't Leave Me Out lyrics - Chrisette Michele

[Verse 1:]
Here I go with my heart wide open
I'm all frustrated again
Yeah I locked the door, threw away the key
Said I'll never let no one in
I was gullible, I was wrapped up in the web you caught me in
So vulnerable
True love lost it's meaning

[Pre-Chorus 1:]
And after self-evaluation
I found I lost me in translation
See the girl with the broken heart
See the girl with the ugly scars
Is now the girl with the brand new start

[Chorus:]
Now I know how to love somebody
I've learned love is out there for me
No love there's no way that love forgot
Love won't leave me out
I know how to love somebody
I've learned love will come back to me
No love there's no way that love forgot
Love won't leave me out

[Verse 2:]
It's amazing to know how far you could go on hope with no doubt
It's the way love goes
It'll take you through and it always brings you out
It won't leave you stranded
Though you may feel abandoned
My experience is my evidence

[Pre-Chorus 2:]
And with a little evaluation
I found I got a whole lot of patience
Now the girl with the broken heart
And the girl with the ugly scars
Is now the girl with the brand new start

[Chorus:]
Now I know how to love somebody
I've learned love is out there for me
No love there's no way that love forgot
Love won't leave me out
I know how to love somebody
I've learned love will come back to me
No love there's no way that love forgot
Love won't leave me out

[Bridge:]
I can feel my heart again
This time I'm not afraid
I can open up my ear
Hear what true love's got to say
This time I want it all
No matter run or fall
I won't hold back at all when love calls

[Chorus:]
Now I know how to love somebody
I've learned love is out there for me
No love there's no way that love forgot
Love won't leave me out
I know how to love somebody
I've learned love will come back to me
No love there's no way that love forgot
Love won't leave me out

No, no, no
It's not gonna leave me out, no, no
I've come so far
I've come so far for love to leave me out like this
Oh yea
Oh it didn't forget about me
Love won't leave me out

Better lyrics - Chrisette Michele

When I fall for love the next time
And an arrow’s in my back.
I won’t let the pain get me down, oh no.
I won’t fight back.

[Bridge:]
Let the cupid take me wherever he wants to go.
Fly me to the moon like an old jazz love song.
Cupid, do what you want to do.
The choice is yours.
When I get where you’re taking me,

[Chorus:]
Love’s gonna make me
Feel better, better, better!
Love’s gonna make me
Feel better, better, better!
‘Cause getting to love’s got me losing my mind!

I’ve been wrecking my brain love’s so insane.
Cupid, help me please.
‘Cause Mr. Wrong keeps meeting me!
And I got a funny feeling love is just around the bend so
I’ll keep on pushing till love falls for me!

[Bridge:]
Let the cupid take me wherever he wants to go.
Fly me to the moon like an old jazz love song.
Cupid, do what you want to do.
The choice is yours.
When I get where you’re taking me,

[Chorus:]
Love’s gonna make me
Feel better, better, better!
Love’s gonna make me
Feel better, better, better!
Cause getting to love’s got me losing-

[Hook:]
I’m not my best but I’m right where I need to be.
Might not be right here but he’s on his way to me.
Love’s coming soon.
I’ve found my prince.
It won’t be long till I’m in love with him!

Snow lyrics - Chrisette Michele

[Verse 1:]
I want to be your all but
I have to be a soldier
I want so bad to focus
Throw my feet right from under me
But It seems that no one ever wants me for me
I doubt I'm scared to thaw for you
I'm trying to protect you

[Pre-Chorus:]
I'm not the one you should be running to
I'm not the one you want to get close to
Tried to be warm,
Something went wrong
Trying to warn you

[Chorus:]
My temperature's like snow
So cold
Let me melt in
Into your arms like snow

[Verse 2:]
Can't stay outside forever
Not in this type of weather
You should be somewhere nicer
With someone so much kinder
Please, believe me when I say you should be somewhere
With someone special
I'm trying to protect you

[Pre-Chorus:]
I'm not the one you should be running to
I'm not the one you want to get close to
Tried to be warm,
Something went wrong
Trying to warn you

[Chorus:]
My temperature's like snow
So cold
Let me melt in
Into your arms like snow

[Bridge:]
Never seen something so beautiful
You're so bad but you I don't know
It's been much more than you used to
I... I never felt something so beautiful
But I wanted to be yours for so long

So cold
So cold
So cold
Let me melt in
Into your heart like snow

Visual Love lyrics - Chrisette Michele

[Verse 1:]
I walk in, red heels
Acting but hop up them big wheels
They're giving me so much attention
Yea they're looking at me like I ain't real
Hey, black dot shades
Like I step right out of a cover page
Walking in slow motion in the wind
I got em coming to me
Oh I hear em saying

[Chorus:]
I'll be there for you
I bet they don't even have a clue
Your eyes tell you you love me
But that don't mean I do
You can't do nothing for me
If your love isn't true
Your eyes tell me you love me
But that don't mean I do
And I ain't gon let you hurt me
When you'll see someone new
Just 'cause you're in visual love
Visual love

[Verse 2:]
Know what you want but you can't have
All of me unless it's gonna last
You gotta have more than 2 eyes
If you came in to call yourself my man
Hey, all games aside
If you wanna get to me do it right
That it'd be better than what's yo name
And I already heard em say

[Chorus:]
I'll be there for you
I bet they don't even have a clue
Your eyes tell you you love me
But that don't mean I do
You can't do nothing for me
If your love isn't true
Your eyes tell me you love me
But that don't mean I do
And I ain't gon let you hurt me
When you'll see someone new
Just 'cause you're in visual love
Visual love

[Bridge:]
Um love, I'm more than a visual
Um love, I'm more than a physical love
Um love my individual
Visual yea, 'cause you're my visual love
Um love, I'm more than a visual
Um love, I'm more than a physical love
Um love my individual
I'm a do myself, you're like me
'Cause you're my visual love

Love me
But that don't mean I do
You can't do nothing for me
If your love isn't true
Your eyes tell me you love me
But that don't mean you do
I ain't gon let you hurt me
If you'll see someone new
Just 'cause you're in visual love
Visual love
Visual love
Visual love

There's gotta be more than visual love
There's gotta be more than visual love
There's gotta be more than visual love
There's gotta be more than visual love

You Mean That Much To Me lyrics - Chrisette Michelle

[Intro:]
Do you know you can come to me for anything?
No, I mean... anything
And I'll give you everything
So...

[Verse 1:]
Tell me your secrets
And I'll tell you mine
Every truth, every lie
Every wrong, every right
Every heartbreak, every setback
Every mistake, every crime
Make me your confidant
Make me your best friend
If you lose or if you win
If you're a saint or if you sin
And if I don't understand I'll do the best that I can

[Pre-Chorus:]
'Cause ooh
Some People search high and low
For someone that makes them whole
So I'm not letting go

[Chorus: x2]
'Cause you mean that much to me
So take all this love from me
I'm giving you every part of me
All of this heart of me
Here is my offering

'Cause you mean that much to me

[Verse 2:]
I'll be your refuge
Be your sanctuary
Bring you peace like a dove, like a prayer
Like a hug
And if that don't do the trick I came equipped with my love
Ask of me anything
Any gift, any kind
Any reason, any time
Any need of any size
And if you'll need something more
I'll search til I find

[Pre-Chorus:]
'Cause oh
People search high and low
For someone that makes them whole
So I'm not letting go

[Chorus: x2]
'Cause you mean that much to me
So take all this love from me
I'm giving you every part of me
All of this heart of me
Here is my offering

[Bridge:]
So vital is your heart to mine
I give you my life
Without you it's hard to survive
You are the anchor to my lifeline

[Chorus: x2]
'Cause you mean that much to me
So take all this love from me
I'm giving you every part of me
All of this heart of me
Here is my offering

'Cause you mean that much to me
You mean that much to me
You mean that much to me, baby
