    *taps mic* turns on Karaoke machine:

    NATASHA BEDINGFIELD
    "Unwritten"

    I am unwritten, can't read my mind, I'm undefined
    I'm just beginning, the pen's in my hand, ending unplanned

    Staring at the blank page before you
    Open up the dirty window
    Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find

    Reaching for something in the distance
    So close you can almost taste it
    Release your inhibitions
    Feel the rain on your skin
    No one else can feel it for you
    Only you can let it in
    No one else, no one else
    Can speak the words on your lips
    Drench yourself in words unspoken
    Live your life with arms wide open
    Today is where your book begins
    The rest is still unwritten

    Oh, oh, oh

    I break tradition, sometimes my tries, are outside the lines
    We've been conditioned to not make mistakes, but I can't live that way

    Staring at the blank page before you
    Open up the dirty window
    Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find

    Reaching for something in the distance
    So close you can almost taste it
    Release your inhibitions
    Feel the rain on your skin
    No one else can feel it for you
    Only you can let it in
    No one else, no one else
    Can speak the words on your lips
    Drench yourself in words unspoken
    Live your life with arms wide open
    Today is where your book begins

    Feel the rain on your skin
    No one else can feel it for you
    Only you can let it in
    No one else, no one else
    Can speak the words on your lips
    Drench yourself in words unspoken
    Live your life with arms wide open
    Today is where your book begins
    The rest is still unwritten

    Staring at the blank page before you
    Open up the dirty window
    Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find

    Reaching for something in the distance
    So close you can almost taste it
    Release your inhibitions
    Feel the rain on your skin
    No one else can feel it for you
    Only you can let it in
    No one else, no one else
    Can speak the words on your lips
    Drench yourself in words unspoken
    Live your life with arms wide open
    Today is where your book begins

    Live your life with arms wide open
    Today is where your book begins
    The rest is still unwritten
    The rest is still unwritten
    The rest is still unwritten

    Oh, yeah, yeah

    DID SOMEBODY SAY KAROAKE!!!!!!

    *SINGS ALOUDLY*

    Sweet dreams were made of these
    who am I to disagree
    I travelled the world and the seven seas
    everybody is looking for something

    some of them wanna use you
    some of them wanna be used by you
    some of them want to abuse you
    some of them want to be a-bused

    I was blasting that CD all morning yesterday. The whole album is great.

    I also like Stumble


    You like me yea I know it
    You're so transparent
    How you stumble round those words so well
    You like me yea I know it
    Don't need a dictionary
    Helping me cause I can spell

    The video is new though, right!? I've never heard of the brotha till VH1 Soul started playing the video... Essi you have to bear wit' me btw, I'm not too much into the soultry music like I used to... I'm actually ketchin up as we speak...
    So if you can tell me besides the dwele (which I love) and the Eric Brockington cat... what others should I invest in!!

    btw right now I'm on to the WiZ soundtrack:
    (I know DON'T LAUGH)


    "You Can't Win"

    (Sung by Michael Jackson)

    You can't win
    You can't break even
    And you can't get out of the game
    People keep sayin'
    Things are gonna change
    But they look just like they're staying the same
    You get in
    Way over your head
    And you've only got yourself to blame

    You can't win, chile
    You can't break even
    And you can't get out of the game

    You can't win
    The world keeps movin'
    And you're standin' far behind
    People keep sayin'
    Things 'll get better
    Just to ease your state of mind
    So you lay back
    And you smoke that smoke
    And you drink your glass of wine

    You can't win, chile
    You can't break even
    And you can't get out of the game

    You can't win
    You can't win
    No way if your story stays the same
    You ain't winnin'
    But it's nice to see you
    I'm awfully glad you came
    Better cool it
    'Cause it ain't about losin'
    Then the world has got no shame

    You can't win, chile
    You can't break even
    And you can't get out of the game

    You can't win
    You can't win
    You can't break even
    Ain't the way
    It's supposed to be
    You'll be spendin'
    Your little bit of money
    While someone else ride free
    Learn your lesson, refuel your mind
    Before some turkey blows out your flame


    I'm about to play "EASE ON DOWN THE ROAD"

    np... I've been organizing my cd collection and putting together everything in order of genre and I SAW THE RASHAAN and was like damn... that cd made me cry!

    There's this video of this woman on a piano they've been playing on BET Jazz and VH1 Soul and I don't know who she is... so if you may have an idea let me know! OH my friend was really into KEM... I think I have to head to Virgin Records this evening...
