BONAFIDE Song lyrics
 

just a little bit longer

written by : Handel, Tucker

You say you're hurting oh
Cause they say I'm flirting oh no
You just can't take it anymore
Your friends say I'm no good for you
But in my heart I'm so true
A partner for life we can be sure
You've asked me for some time to clear your mind
I stayed away it hurt so much
Without your touch
Now I'm back and you say

chorus
Just a little bit longer baby
For my love keeps growing stronger
A little more time to say
But in my head a love song plays
For you and me yeah ah oh

We played in the rain together
That feeling lives on forever
Memories that bring tears of joy
We've had our share of bad times too
Hurting each other me and you
It's brought us much closer in the end
Just too much we've both fought for
To put it all down the drain
I've stayed away just for a while
But now you're driving me insane

repeat chorus

I said all there is to say now
Hoping that you'll make me stay
Believe me I'm yearning for you girl
Hope there's a place in your heart
That remembers the good from the start
Just put me back where I belong
You asked me for some time to clear your mind
I stayed away it hurt so much
Without your touch now I'm back and you say

repeat chorus 3x

Just a little more time girl

 

Close To You

written by : G. Benson, W. Sela, M. Elliott

She was a Jezebel this Brixton queen
Living her life like a backstreet dream
Telling me lies when the truth was clear
I think she knew what I wanted to hear
Spinning me round like a wheel on fire
Walking on tightrope on love's high wire
Fatal attraction is where I'm at
There's no escape for me

chorus
I just wanna be close to you
And do all the things you want me to
I just wanna be close to you
And show you the way I feel

I feel love when I'm lying in the midnight hour
Holding you just like a dream
Love is never what it seems
When we touch and you're holding me the way you do
Girl you make my dreams come true
You make my dreams come true

repeat chorus

She was a Gemini on the cusp of Mars
She holds me back or she goes too far
Winding me up just to let me down
So emotionally gagged and bound
There was more to this than meets the eye
A devil woman locked inside
With the full moon rising I was scared
I think I was possessed

repeat chorus

I feel love every time your body's next to mine
Something deep inside of me
Wants to love you endlessly
When we touch girl you don't know how it makes me feel
I just can't believe it's real
I can't believe it's real

repeat chorus

She had an attitude I can't explain
You never know if you're in frame
Tying me up with elastic words
I'm on a countdown till I get hurt
Her blood was hot and she burned so bright
A neon sign there in the night
It's hard to say if I went too far
My heart still bears the scars

I just wanna be close to you
I just wanna be close to you
I just wanna be close to you

She was a Jezebel this Brixton queen
Living her life like a backstreet dream
Telling me lies when the truth was clear
I think she knew what I wanted to hear (I just wanna be close to you)
Spinning me round like a wheel on fire
Walking a tightrope on love's high wire
Fatal attraction is where I'm at
There's no escape for me

I wanna be close to you
And do all the thing you want me to
I just wanna be close to you
I just wanna be close to you baby
And show you the way I feel
I just wanna be close to you baby
And do all the thing you wanna me to
I just wanna be close to you

 

Never Did Say Goodbye

written by : M. Elliott, I. Green, J.P. Maunick

Just one more chance with you darling
Just one more chance

She wrote me her letters she no longer cared
But the tears upon the paper said she lied, she lied
If only I'd listened,if only I'd tried
Then this house would still have been a home
Oh tell me why it took us all so long to realize oh why
It's oh so obvious

chorus
Never did say goodbye
She never stopped to say goodbye no
Never did say goodbye
She never stopped to say goodbye no

If I could be with you and hold back my pride
And this love we'll make it bind
We'll look to the future, remembering the past
We'll never lose our way again
Oh tell me why it took us all so long to realize oh why
It's oh so obvious

repeat chorus

Never did say goodbye

Just one more chance with you darling
How can I survive
Without a reason to go on
My baby's not here to love me
How can I forget without a reason to go on
My baby's not here to love me ooooh why

Never did say goodbye
Never turned and said a reason why
Just one more chance with you darling
Just one more chance yeah
Just one more chance with you darling
Just one more chance yeah

Never did say goodbye
Never turned and said a reason why
Never did say goodbye
Never turned and said a reason why
Just one more chance baby
Just one more chance yeah

 

Best Of me

written by : M. Elliott, P. Hunningale

You get the best of me more than I can give
In every part of me just for you I live

We shared our lives together for so many years
Been through stormy weather shared the joys and tears
But oh this change of feeling has got me so confused
Feeling so rejected feeling like I'm used

What more can I say
What more can I do
Seems I'm wasting my time
Trying to show you

chorus
You get the best of me more than I can give
In every part of me,just for you I live 2x

Seems I'm been to hell and back only just to please you
And you're still believing that I don't give a damn
Yes I've made my mistakes with no intend to hurt you
Tried so very hard just to make you understand

What more can I say
What more can I do
Seems I'm wasting my time
Trying to show you

repeat chorus

Oh yeah oh yeah
Very best of me baby
Can't you see yeah

What more can I do
What more can I say
Seems I'm wasting my time
Trying to show you

repeat chorus3x

 

Space In My Heart

written by : D. Austin, M. Elliott

All I really wanna do is get you babe
and hold you tight, never let you go
I promise you to close my eyes and wait a while and still find you there
Caring about me instead of just wasting my time
I gave you my heart, oh baby was that not enough

chorus
There's a space in this heart babe
Waiting for you yes there is baby
When you find where you're going
I'll be there too yes I will baby

I guess I never told you that I love you babe
But each moment was wrong
And I would die, if I never get the chance to show you how strong
I gave you my heart, yes I did babe was that not enough for you baby

repeat chorus

oh yeah
I'm gonna find a way, I love you babe, I love you babe
To make you mine

repeat chorus 2x

 

Human work Of Art

written by : M. Leeson, P. Vale

No one on earth means more to me
And you're a painted picture
Of the way that the world should be
Don't ever change it
I don't wanna live in this world without you, oh no

And I can't explain, I can't define
What you do to me
My senses are so alive
You tell the story
And it's all that I ever believe, oh yeah

Portraits and poetry
Are frozen forms of perfection
But they don't live and breathe
And when my heart's in need
They don't answer me

chorus
You, you are you're a human work of art
You, you are you're a human work of art

You make me love, you make me care
You give me freedom I don't need
When I know you're there
My search is over
I've got all of the riches that money don't buy, oh yeah

Your words are poetry
Your face is more than perfection
That when I watch you move
It only goes to prove
That everything you do

repeat chorus

You're my mission
You're my girl
Ooh you liberate my soul
There's no illusion
That your touch is gold

Portraits and poetry
Are frozen forms of perfection
But they don't live and breathe
And when my heart's in need
They don't answer me

repeat chorus

Walking talking inspiration
You you're a human work of art
Walking talking inspiration
You you are you're a human work of art

And neither do I borrow, hey

Temptress I'm calling your bluff
Temptress I hope you can deliver the stuff
Temptress enough is enough
Let off ease up you're playing too rough

You've been tickling my fancy too long now hey

No more promises no more guile

repeat chorus

Your friends they warned me about you long time ago hey

Peace Throughout The World

written by : M. Elliott, J.P. Maunick

I say a little prayer
Hoping I'll be heard
Lord help the children to find peace in their time
I look around me, it all seems so wrong
Got to find a way to make it all right

chorus
Oh oh peace peace throughout the world
Just a little peace just a little peace
Peace throughout the world

War for money war for land
Tell me how long it's going to be before we understand
People of the world
It's time we get things straight
Cause if we don't get it together
It's gonna be too late

repeat chorus

In a world where peoples' feelings don't matter
In a world where people just don't care
I search the high and low to find myself an answer
Nothing seems to matter, no one seems to care
Take a look to the future
What do you see
Twentieth century going down on it's knees
If we ever get there what would we do
Cause there won't be nothing there for me and you

Let now be the time
Let peace be the vibe
Let's join together
And we'll strive to find a new way
To see it clear where you new existence
In which we can expect
Individually achievements peace of mind
Poverty ? all men kind
Make this world a better place
To be sure ??? the human race

Peace throughout the world ooh
Oh peace mmm

In a world where peoples' feelings don't matter
In a world where people just don't care
I search the high and low to find myself an answer
Nothing seems to matter, no one seems to care
Take a look to the future
What do you see
Twentieth century going down on it's knees
If we ever get there what would we do
Cause there won't be nothing there for me and you

repeat chorus

 

You

written by : G. Benson, W. Sela, M. Elliott

Seems I no longer score oh baby

Is there something you should tell me
Cause I feel the tension in the air
Maybe we should talk about it
Cause this silence I can't bear
And I'm not making no excuses
There's a million reasons why
We were once so good together
Now we're living separate lifes

chorus
Cause you don't love me anymore
Don't hurt the way I do crying over you
And you don't need me anymore
Don't see the tears I cry (when I'm) crying over you

One was such a lonely number
Then I realize the score
All you can do is change it
Let me hold you just once more
Cause every picture tells your story
And tonight I feel the blues
So afraid to think about tomorrow
All the love that we once knew

repeat chorus

I'm just living on a prayer
Hope I wake up, find you there
We can turn the world around us
And make it like it's ??? day

repeat chorus 3x

 

Sure Fire Love

written by : P. Yellowstone, P. Radford, M. Elliott

Said I'm needing you more well
Said I'm needing you more oh girl

The way you say it in your kisses darling
In everything you do
I just have to talk about you
You're there when the sun comes up
At night you make my dreams come true
Those little things that you do

And if I go away more than a day or tw
Each time I close my eyes
I say a little prayer for you

chorus
We've got a sure fire love, sure fire love
The more I think of you oh darling
We've got a sure fire love, sure fire love
Don't change the things you do yeah

We'll talk about the weather darling
Cause the way I feel inside
There's nothing but blue skies
And if we spend a little time together
That's how we keep our love alive oh well

And if I go away more than a day or two
Each night I close my eyes
I say a little prayer for you

repeat chorus

And if I go away more than a day or two
Each time I close my eyes
I say a little prayer for you

I love you the way you are girl
I love you the way you are yeah

Life

written by : M. Elliott, P. Robinson

Life life
Just another weekend closing
There's another monday morning rising
Days they seem to get shorter hey
Right before my very eyes hey

chorus
Life everyday its getting harder
Oh life rougher everyday
Oh life everyday its getting harder
Oh life tougher everyday

Strike another match to light the fire
There's another mouth to feed
I send little Jimmy to fetch the water
Lord knows just how I feel

repeat chorus

Cause I'm feeling the pain yeah
Cause I'm feeling the pain
He who feels it knows it
As we're feeling the chill of a whistling breeze
Man made rules the system keeps us down
As we're fighting the fight for the young ones

repeat chorus 2x

rougher every day
oh life oh life

repeat chorus

 

Prayer For The World

written by : F. Musker, J. Scott

Not just another prayer
Not just another song

When I look at the darkness all around us
I feel like I'm loosin' control
So many people who just don't know where to go
Listen to me now
Not a song goes unsung
Not a voice goes unheard
Ooh I'm hanging on your every word

chorus
Say a prayer for the world
Only love can save us now
Say a prayer for the world
Believe that it's gonna be all right somehow
Every day it's a new day
Every day we start again
Say a prayer for the world
And send all your love to all creation oh yeah

Said the world is my pillow, where I rest my weary head
I'm not afraid of dying but I'm not thinking about leaving here oh no
And the voice says learn to sit in silence
Not a flower grows in vain
We must learn to cultivate the garden oh yeah

repeat chorus

And when the darkness rolls in
There's a light still shining yeah oh yeah
Suspended here in twilight
There's a road I'm finding yeah oh yeah
Say a prayer

repeat chorus 2x

Not just another prayer
Not just another song
