Poetry in Song: All The Man That I Need (Whitney Houston)

I used to cry myself to sleep at night
But that was all before he came
I thought love had to hurt to turn out right
But now he’s here
It’s not the same, it’s not the same

He fills me up
He gives me love
More love than I’ve ever seen
He’s all I’ve got
He’s all I’ve got in this world
But he’s all the man that I need

And in the morning when I kiss his eyes
He takes me down and rocks me slow
And in the evening when the moon is high
He holds me close and won’t let go
He won’t let go

He fills me up
He gives me love
More love than I’ve ever seen
He’s all I’ve got
He’s all I’ve got in this world
But he’s all the man that I need

He fills me up
He gives me love
More love than I’ve ever seen
He’s all I’ve got
He’s all I’ve got in this world
But he’s all the man that I need

He fills me up
He gives me love
More love than I’ve ever seen
He’s all I’ve got
He’s all I’ve got in this world
But he’s all the man that I need

Poetry in Song: Walk The Line, by Iggy Azalea (2014)

[Intro:]
Yeah we don’t wanna do anything to scare your children
That’s the last thing we wanna do
We don’t wanna scare anybody

[Verse 1:]
Never said it was fair, but still I never knew fear
Not in a million years could you tell me that I’d be here
I just hopped off that lear, my life on another tier
Lifting glasses for cheers, keep that hating out my ear
From country living to county skipping, this would drive you crazy
Check the rate that they pay me a giant could never slay me
Money never a maybe but never forgot my roots
I heard that the top is lonely I wonder if it’s the truth
So I’m just climbing, paid off rhyming, now I’m shining could be blinding
Ain’t too much real left but right here is where you could find it
This that new… classic, ain’t this what you needed?
I’m what amazing look like, you’ll recognize it when you see it

[Hook:]
Not where I wanna be but I’m far from home
Just tryna’ make it on my own
And unless destiny calls I don’t answer phones
This is the line that I walk alone
Ain’t no going back now
Don’t know where I’m at now
Ain’t no going back now
This is the line that I walk alone

[Verse 2:]
I’ve been counted out, I’ve been stepped on
I was wide awake and got slept on
I had everything and then lost it
Worked my ass off, I’m exhausted
All this talking about me, just talk about me
I’m here now, they can’t walk around me
I’m dedicated, flow elevated
Tell every hater hope you never play it, said I’ll never make it
I’m celebrating, and I’m never quitting, no resignation
Took desperate measures out of desperation
I’m a fresh face with no expiration
I know pressure make diamonds so I threw ’em off in this chain
When it’s all on the line
I’m who you want in the game
Cause I’m gonna get it and that’s fo sure
Can’t be like y’all, that’s no go
International, and y’all local, got this locked up just like po-po
Every beat get ate, that’s ocho
Won’t lose oh no that’s Yoko.
Been up down like low lows
Still make my own on my solo.
Had to be here to believe it
Think like winners to perceive it
Here to let ‘cha know that I mean it
If I speak it, And say keep it
This flow, that’s genius
Just think about it, would I think about it?
If I didn’t live it, won’t ink about it
Married to the money, put a ring around it, what?

[Hook]

[Bridge:]
And everything ain’t the way I planned it
But when the smoke clears I’m the last standing
This lifestyle can be so demanding
But I take off like a plane that ain’t ever landing

[Hook]

[Outro:]
Ain’t no going back now
Ain’t no going back now
This is the line and I walk alone

Poetry in Song: ‘Never Should Have’ (Ashanti)

You were all that I wanted
I fell in love with all of your heart and your soul
From that moment couldn’t imagine
You went from hurting me you’re mistreated in your love
I should have loved

Rivers of tear drops
These sharp pains in my heart
IF this was the way that you loved
You never should have loved me

You never should have loved me
You never should have touched me
You never should have
Never should have told me you loved me and you would never leave me.
‘Cause everything that you would do
It made me fall in love with you
Until you left and you made that mistake
Now I can’t take you back if I wanted to

(Ohh ohh ohh ohh…)

Balled up, laying in my bed
Thoughts racing through my head
How did we start out in love and end up here
You said you loved me and I believed you
Seems like you don’t even mean what you say.

Rivers of tear drops,
This short pains in my heart
This was the way that you loved
You never should have loved me

You never should have loved me
You never should have touched me
You never should have,
Never should have told me you loved me and you would never leave me.
‘Cause everything that you would do
It made me fall in love with you
Until you left and you made that mistake
Now I can’t take you back if I wanted to

You were all that I wanted
I fell in love with you
’cause you loved me and I thought that you were ready
I thought that we were gonna be a family
And if you weren’t then you should have let me
Keep all my love to give
To someone else

You never should have loved me
You never should have touched me
You never should have
Never should have told me you loved me and you would never leave me.
‘Cause everything that you would do
It made me fall in love with you
Until you left and you made that mistake
Now I can’t take you back if I wanted to

Yeah, yeah, yeah, hmm, hmm hmmm.

Poetry in Song 2: Taylor Swift- ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’

“I Knew You Were Trouble”

‘[Music video spoken part:]
I think–I think when it’s all over,
It just comes back in flashes, you know?
It’s like a kaleidoscope of memories.
It just all comes back. But he never does.
I think part of me knew the second I saw him that this would happen.
It’s not really anything he said or anything he did,
It was the feeling that came along with it.
And the crazy thing is I don’t know if I’m ever gonna feel that way again.
But I don’t know if I should.
I knew his world moved too fast and burned too bright.
But I just thought, how can the devil be pulling you toward someone who looks so much like an angel when he smiles at you?
Maybe he knew that when he saw me.
I guess I just lost my balance.
I think that the worst part of it all wasn’t losing him.
It was losing me.Once upon a time a few mistakes ago
I was in your sights, you got me alone
You found me, you found me, you found me
I guess you didn’t care, and I guess I liked that
And when I fell hard you took a step back
Without me, without me, without meAnd he’s long gone when he’s next to me
And I realize the blame is on me‘Cause I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I’d never been
‘Til you put me down, oh
I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I’d never been
Now I’m lying on the cold hard ground
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble

No apologies, he’ll never see you cry
Pretend he doesn’t know that he’s the reason why
You’re drowning, you’re drowning, you’re drowning
Now I heard you moved on from whispers on the street
A new notch in your belt is all I’ll ever be
And now I see, now I see, now I see

He was long gone when he met me
And I realize the joke is on me, yeah!

I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I’d never been
‘Til you put me down, oh
I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I’d never been
Now I’m lying on the cold hard ground
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble

And the saddest fear comes creeping in
That you never loved me or her, or anyone, or anything, yeah

I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I’d never been
‘Til you put me down, oh
I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I’d never been
Now I’m lying on the cold hard ground
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble

I knew you were trouble when you walked in
Trouble, trouble, trouble
I knew you were trouble when you walked in
Trouble, trouble, trouble

[Music video spoken part:]
I don’t know if you know who you are until you lose who you are.’ (http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/taylorswift/iknewyouweretrouble.html, accessed January 2013)

Poetry in Song 1: Bebe- Siempre Me Quedara

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z-HKvYDTpoc

Siempre Me Quedará

‘Cómo decir que me parte en mil
las esquinitas de mis huesos,
que han caído los esquemas de mi vida
ahora que todo era perfecto.
Y algo más que eso,
me sorbiste el seso y me decían del peso
de este cuerpecito mío
que se ha convertío en río.
de este cuerpecito mío
que se ha convertío en río.

Me cuesta abrir los ojos
y lo hago poco a poco,
no sea que aún te encuentre cerca.
Me guardo tu recuerdo
como el mejor secreto,
que dulce fue tenerte dentro.

Hay un trozo de luz
en esta oscuridad
para prestarme calma.
El tiempo todo calma,
la tempestad y la calma,
el tiempo todo calma,
la tempestad y la calma.

Siempre me quedará
la voz suave del mar,
volver a respirar la lluvia que caerá
sobre este cuerpo y mojará
la flor que crece en mi,
y volver a reír
y cada día un instante volver a pensar en ti.
En la voz suave del mar,
en volver a respirar la lluvia que caerá
sobre este cuerpo y mojará
la flor que crece en mi,
y volver a reír
y cada día un instante volver a pensar en ti.

Cómo decir que me parte en mil
las esquinitas de mis huesos,
que han caído los esquemas de mi vida
ahora que todo era perfecto.
Y algo más que eso,
me sorbiste el seso y me decían del peso
de este cuerpecito mío
que se ha convertío en río.
de este cuerpecito mío
que se ha convertío en río.

Siempre me quedará
la voz suave del mar,
volver a respirar la lluvia que caerá
sobre este cuerpo y mojará
la flor que crece en mi,
y volver a reír
y cada día un instante volver a pensar en ti.
En la voz suave del mar,
en volver a respirar la lluvia que caerá
sobre este cuerpo y mojará
la flor que crece en mi,
y volver a reír
y cada día un instante volver a pensar en ti.’
