Lioness Hidden Treasures

The Trouble Talent Amy Winehouse memang telah pergi meninggalkan kita dengan kematian kontroversialnya, namun dia masih menyisakan sedikit warisan untuk diberikan dan dikenang oleh para penggemarnya berupa sebuah album. lagu-lagu yang terdapat dalam album ketiganya ini, Lioness Hidden Treasures, memang bukan lagu baru melainkan kumpulan dari lagu-lagu yang pernah direkam sejak awal karier profesionalnya, jadi tak perlu berharap lebih seperti saat menunggu album Black to Black selepas Frank. Namun bagaimana pun Amy adalah seorang Diva kelas atas dengan kemampuan vokal dan ciri khasnya yang begitu original, sehingga album ini patut di apresiasi oleh siapapun yang menggemari karyanya.

 

 

Best Friends

I can’t wait to get away from you

Unsurprisingly you hate me too

We only communicate when we need to fight

But we are best friends…right?
You’re too good at pretending you don’t care

There’s enough resentment in the air

Now you don’t want me in the flat

When you’re home at night But we’re best friends right?
You’re Stephanie and I’m Paulette

You know what all my faces mean

And it’s easy to smoke it up, forget

Everything that happened in between
Nicky’s right when he says I can’t win

So I don’t wanna tell you anything

I can’t even think about How you feel inside

But we are best friends, right?
I don’t like the way you say my name

You’re always looking for someone to blame

Now you want me to suffer just cause

You was born wide

But we are best friends right?

You’re Stephanie and I’m Paulette

You know what all my faces mean

And its easy to smoke it up, forget

Everything that happened in between
So I had love for you when I was 4 And there’s no one

I wanna smoke with more

Someday I’ll buy the Rizla*, so you get the dro**

Cause we are best friends right, right, right, right?

Because we are best friends right?

Because we are best friends right?

*Rizla isUnited Kingdommarijuana rolling paper

**Dro is slang for marijuana

Our day will come

Our day will come (Our day will come) And we’ll have everything We’ll share the joy Falling in love can bring
No one can tell me That I’m too young to know I love you so And you love me
Our day will come (Our day will come) If we just wait a while No tears for us Think love and wear a smile
Our dreams are meant to be Because we’ll always stay
In love this way Our day will come
[Instrumental break]
Our dreams are meant to be Because we’ll always stay In love this way
Our day will come
Our day will come
Our day will come
Our day….will come
Our day will come

Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow

Tonight you’re mine completely
You give your love so sweetly
Tonight the light of love is in your eyes
Will you love me tomorrow?

Is this a lasting treasure
Or just a moment’s pleasure?
Can I believe the magic of your sighs?
Will you still love me tomorrow?

Tonight with words unspoken
And you say that I’m the only one, the only one, yeah
But will my heart be broken
When the night meets the morning star?

I’d like to know that your love
Is love I can be sure of
So tell me now, cause I won’t ask again
Will you still love me tomorrow?
Will you still love me tomorrow?
Yeah

 

 

BETWEEN THE CHEAT

I would die before divorce you I’d take a thousand thumps for my love ‘Cause you kiss a lucky horseshoe Stuck it in my boxing glove ‘Cause anyone who will see us Through our victory and done defeat Knows that I’ll take you to the cleaners If you come between the cheats
Between the cheats, oooeeooo Between the cheats, oooeeeooo
My husband is the finest handsome hustler And he still makes this housewife blush So I’m throwing my hand in his

I’m sitting on the royal flush Women drink him in, swimming in his green eyes Then go home and catch the chips you got… The jack of hearts is my jackpot
Between the cheats, oooeeeooo Between the cheats, oooeeeooo
Catch me on… And I know as my heart beats There’s a win secret to… And it’s sworn between the cheats
Between the cheats, oooeeeooo Between the cheats, oooeeeooo Between the cheats, oooeeeooo

“Like Smoke”
(feat. Nas)

[Chorus]
I never wanted you to be my man
I just needed company
Don’t want to get dependent on
Your time or who you spend it on
But I lose it when you look at me
Like smoke, I hung around in the unbalance
Whoa, ohhhh!

[Nas]
It’s not a movie, this is not a script or proofread
I’ll spit some untruths to dumb fools and groupies
Fun to punctuate, pronunciate, the funds I make, the miles I take, put in your face
Oh my mistake, you’re not a floosy? Then excuse me
Before I talk, my style introduced me
Get your name and phone number like 1-2-3
Y’all know the story, y’all know the commentary
I kick the narrative, this is legendary
The good Samaritan, hood thespian
Like a polygamist, with a twist
Will I marry again? Maybe, I guess
I hold a lady’s interest, I just met
The love scholar, she the teacher’s pet
Every other eve we meet and make each other sweat
I feel triumphant, no strings
Just a fling to have fun with
I be out in London, Camden
Huntin’ for the answers, why did God take away the homie?
I can’t stand it
I’m a firm believer that we all meet up in eternity
Just hope the big man show me some courtesy
Why? ‘Cause I’m deemed a heart breaker
Like smoke, girls lean ‘round a player
Yeah-uh

[Chorus]
I never wanted you to be my man
I just needed company
Don’t want to get dependent on
Your time or who you spend it on
I lose it when you look at me
Like smoke, I hang around in the unbalance
Whoa, ohhhh!

[Nas]
Yo, this recession is a test
It’s affecting my complexion
Misdirection my affection
My concerns are bill collections
The facts is the taxes, they after me
Chapter three, my property
My handlers, they dealt with me improperly
I say some things I should probably keep privately
Evaluate the world bank trusts like I’m IEG
Those fly suites and my bourgeois
Tall freak, she wouldn’t protest with me at Wall Street
She says, no you’re so deep
I said, no let’s go through it
Historically so ruthless feds came for Joe Louis
She said, my man you need to laugh sometimes
Classifies me as a whore, I tell her have some wine
You colder than penguin poo, get hurt, dismay
She’s thinkin’ that’s just so silly to say
But if you really think about it hussy
See a penguin, he drags his shit on the ground all day
And there’s a dragon, he’s a busted, you return with [?]
I’m through with you after I crush, so is that humorous enough?
The smoke I puff
Tell the car to go to Aura, Funky Buddha, Whisky Mist on Mayfair
I hope I meet Simonie Love so she can show me love
NYC to UK I might stay there
Everybody in the club tonight say, “Yeah”
You know how me and Amy are, straight players

[Chorus]
I never wanted you to be my man
I just needed company
Don’t want to get dependent on
Your time or who you spend it on
I lose it when you look at me
Like smoke, I hang around in the unbalance
Whoa, ohhhh!

Ohh, ohh, ooooohh, ohh

Valerie

Well sometimes I go out by myself
And I look across the water
And I think of all the things, what you’re doing
And in my head I paint a picture

Since I’ve come on home,
Well my body’s been a mess
And I’ve missed your ginger hair
And the way you like to dress
Won’t you come on over
Stop making a fool out of me
Why don’t you come on over Valerie?

Valerie [x3]

Did you have to go to jail,
Put your house on up for sale, did you get a good lawyer?
I hope you didn’t catch a tan,
I hope you’ll find the right man who’ll fix it for ya
And are you shopping anywhere,
Changed the color of your hair, And are you busy?
And did you have to pay that fine
That you were dodging all the time, are you still dizzy?

Since I’ve come on home,
Well my body’s been a mess
And I’ve missed your ginger hair
And the way you like to dress
Won’t you come on over
Stop making a fool out of me
Why don’t you come on over Valerie?

Valerie [x3]

Well sometimes I go out by myself
And I look across the water
And I think of all the things, what you’re doing
And in my head I paint a picture

Since I’ve come on home,
Well my body’s been a mess
And I’ve missed your ginger hair
And the way you like to dress
Won’t you come on over
Stop making a fool out of me
Why don’t you come on over Valerie?

Valerie [x8]

Why don’t you come over Valerie?

 

 

Wake Up Alone

It’s okay in the day I’m staying busy
Tied up enough so I don’t have to wonder where is he
Got so sick of crying
So just lately
When I catch myself I do a 180
I stay up clean the house
At least I’m not drinking
Run around just so I don’t have to think about thinking
That silent sense of content
That everyone gets
Just disappears soon as the sun sets

This face in my dreams seizes my guts
He floods me with dread
Soaked in soul
He swims in my eyes by the bed
Pour myself over him
Moon spilling in
And I wake up alone

If I was my heart
I’d rather be restless
The second I stop the sleep catches up and I’m breathless
This ache in my chest
As my day is done now
The dark covers me and I cannot run now
My blood running cold
I stand before him
It’s all I can do to assure him
When he comes to me
I drip for him tonight
Drowning in me we bathe under blue light

His face in my dreams seizes my guts
He floods me with dread
Soaked in soul
He swims in my eyes by the bed
Pour myself over him
Moon spilling in
And I wake up alone
And I wake up alone
And I wake up alone
And I wake up alone

Halftime

Simple, sweet guitar
Humbled by the bass
When the beat kicks in
Everything falls into place
And it overpowers me
I can’t help but dance
You can try to stop me now
Boy, you won’t get the chance

Halftime, time to think it through
Consider the change
Seek it from a different view
Halftime, time to think it through
Consider the change

Rhythm floods my heart
The melody it feeds my soul
The tune tears me apart
And it swallowed me whole
You should thank your lucky star
Cause the music is a gift
And it’s stronger than all else
Provides me with a bliss

Halftime, time to think it through
Consider the change
Seek it from a different view
Halftime, time to think it through
Consider the change

My lyrics reveling
Some natural vibe
To find the laid-back feeling
Oh just let it ride
Every phrase that I’m to sing
It’s too much to take, yeah
So I sing this endlessly
It pacifies my ache

Halftime, time to think it through
Consider the change
Seek it from a different view
Halftime, time to think it through
Consider the change

Tears Dry On Their Own

All I can ever be to you,
Is a darkness that we knew,
And this regret I’ve got accustomed to,
Once it was so right,
When we were at our high,
Waiting for you in the hotel at night,
I knew I hadn’t met my match,
But every moment we could snatch,
I don’t know why I got so attached,
It’s my responsibility,
And you don’t owe nothing to me,
But to walk away I have no capacity

[Chorus:]
He walks away,
The sun goes down,
He takes the day but I’m grown,
And in your way, in this blue shade,
My tears dry on their own,

I don’t understand,
Why do I stress A man,
When there’s so many bigger things at hand,
We could a never had it all,
We had to hit a wall,
So this is inevitable withdrawal,
Even if I stop wanting you,
A Perspective pushes true,
I’ll be some next man’s other woman soon,

I shouldn’t play myself again,
I should just be my own best friend,
Not fuck myself in the head with stupid men,

[Chorus]

So we are history,
Your shadow covers me
The sky above ablaze,

[Chorus]

I wish I could say no regrets,
And no emotional debts,
Cause as we kiss goodbye the sun sets
So we are history,
The shadow covers me,
The sky above ablaze that lonley lovers see,

[Chorus]

[x2:]
He walks away,
The sun goes down,
He takes the day but I’m grown,
And in your way,
In this deep shade
My tears dry

 

 

The Girl From Ipanema

Tall and tan and young and lovely
The girl from Ipanema goes walking now
When she passes each one she passes
Goes daboo-du-daa
When she walks she’s just like a samba
That swings so cool and sways so gentle
That when she passes, each one she passes
Goes daboo-du-daa

Oh, but I watch her so sadly
How can I tell her I love her
Yes, I would give my heart gladly
But each day as she walks to the sea
She looks straight ahead, not at me

Tall and tan and young and lovely
The girl from Ipanema goes walking now
When she passes
I go di-di-do-di… from Ipanema…

Yea I want her so badly
How, how can I tell her I love her
Yes, I would give my heart gladly
But each day when she walks to the sea
She looks straight ahead, not at me

Tall and tan and young and lovely
The girl from Ipanema goes walking
And when she passes, I smile,
But she doesn’t see.
She ain’t looking at me.

A Song for You

I’ve been so many places
In my life and time
I’ve sung a lot of songs
I’ve made some bad rhyme
I’ve acted all my life in stages
With ten thousand people watching
But we’re alone now and
I’m singing this song for you

I know your image of me
Is what I hope to be
I’ve treated you unkindly
Can’t you see
There’s no one more important to me
So darlin’ won’t you please see through me
Cause we’re alone now and
I’m singing this song for you

You taught me precious secrets
Of the truth withholding nothing
You came out in front, well baby I was hiding
But now I’m so much better
And if my words don’t come together
Listen to the melody
Cause my love is in there hiding

I love you in a place
Where there’s no space or time
I love you for my life
Cause you were the boy next door and a friend of mine
And when my life is over
Remember remember remember…
When we were together
And I was singing this song for you

We were alone and
I was singing this song for you

 

 

Body and Soul

My heart is sad and lonely
For you I sigh, for you dear only
Why haven’t you seen it
I’m all for you body and soul

I spend my days in longing
And wondering why it’s me you’re wronging
I tell you I mean it
I’m all for you body and soul

I can’t believe it
It’s hard to conceive it
That you’d turn away romance
Are you pretending
It looks like the ending
Unless I could have just one more chance to prove, dear

My life a wreck you’re making
You know I’m yours for just the taking
I’d gladly surrender myself to you body and soul

My life a wreck you’re making
You know I’m yours for the very taking
I’d gladly surrender myself to you body and soul
