Track Name: I Want A Man
I want a back rub, foot rub, breakfast in bed
I want a good set of shoulders where I'll lay my head
I want two strong arms that will hold me tight
I want a lover who is always gonna treat me right

Chorus:
I want a man, man, I want a man
Don't want a boy, child, baby, better understand
I want him taking care of business
Does the best he can
I want a done with playin, shit together, grown ass man

I want a man who loves his mama, but don't live in her house
I want him done with all the drama, got it figured out
I want a man who's never lazy and who's never, ever mean
And, if it's possible, I'd love it if he'd cook and clean
Track Name: Maybe Never, Maybe Tonight
You may never find a job you like
You may never find anyone to hold you tight
But if you hide yourself away, out of sight
You can guarantee you'll never get it right

Life is never gonna wait for you to see
Each and every opportunity
You're just gonna have to set yourself free

Chorus:
(You'll never know)
No, you'll never know
(If you don't go)
If you never, ever go
(Open up your mind)
Gotta open up your eyes
(See what you find)
Maybe never, maybe tonight

You may never be a millionaire
You may never find any flowers in your hair
Believin it will never happen will never get you there
Believe that no one will ever love you, and no one will care

Life is never gonna wait for you to see
Each and every opportunity
You're just gonna have to set yourself free
Track Name: Just Go Ahead
Darlin, just go ahead
Take the butterflies and the roses so red
Take all the quiet times we had in my bed
Just please, darlin, get out of my head

Take the sunshine and happier days
Take this lump in my throat, just take it away
Don't forget to take the sweet things you said
Take back it all, just get out of my head

Take each memory, each smile we shared
Take every time that you told me you cared
Take this feeling that i've been misled
May as well take my heart, just get out of my head

Darlin, we had it good for so long
It's really too bad that we should say so long
Because how many times
Are you gonna find
A love quite like mine

But now darlin, just go ahead
Take the roses that used to be red
Take the things i remember you said
Now it's time to forget so get out of my head
Track Name: Take Me
Take me, fill me up
Wring me out, baby
Show me something new
There is only you

You know your love
Is all that I'm thinking of

Take me somewhere else
Let's go lose ourselves
Take me, use me up
Spit me out, baby

You know your kiss
Is all I want on my lips

Baby, you're the one for me
You know what is good for me
You make me see
Just how good love can be

Love me as I am
My heart is in your hands
Take me halfway there
Bring me back, tease me

You know your love
Is all that I'm thinking of

Baby, you're the one for me
You know what is good for me
You make me see
Just how good love can be
Track Name: Boy Oh Boy
Boy, now I'm gone, you're feelin sorry for youself
But when you had me, you just wanted someone else
You act so childish, I have half a mind to say
I wouldn't be shocked to find that
Beard upon your face was fake

Chorus:
Boy oh boy
Don't make a fool out of me
Oh, you best believe
That you'll be sorry
Don't test me baby

Some men think all the world was laid out just for them
Each one believing all the girls, they yearn for him
Well, please excuse me, but I have to say, I feel compelled
To tell all of those men that all the girls think they can go to hell

Chorus

Sometimes everybody needs an understanding mind
Somebody to be patient and to listen and be kind
But you have taken every bit of patience I possess
So, now I'm gonna take my patience back and go find someone else

Chorus
