Alexandra Burke Lyrics

"Overcome" (2009)

Bad Boys lyrics - alexandra burke

(feat. Flo Rida)

[Flo Rida]
(Bad Boys, Bad Boys)
Alexandra Girl I know what you like
(Bad Boys, Bad Boys)
Oh, oh (Bad Boys, Bad Boys)
Hey, yeah (Bad Boys, Bad Boys)

[Alexandra]
Some people call them players
But I’m far from terrified
Cos somehow I’m drawn to danger
And have been all of my life
It feels my heart’s divided
Half way ‘tween wrong and right
I know I’m playing with fire
But I don’t know why

Yeah the bad boys are always catching my eye
(Ooh Way, Ooh Wah)
I said the bad boys are always spinning my mind
(Ooh Way, Ooh Wah)
Even though I know they’re no good for me
It’s the risk I take for the chemistry
With the bad boys always catching my eye
(Ooh Way, Ooh Way, Ooh Wah)
Oooooh, bad boys

Some think it’s complicated
But they’re straight up fun for me
I don’t need no explanation
It’s nothing more than what you see here
My heart still feels divided
Halfway ‘tween wrong and right
I know I’m playing with fire
But I don’t know why

Yeah the Bad Boys are always catching my eye
(Ooh Way, Ooh Wah)
I said the bad boys are always spinning my mind
(Ooh Way, Ooh Wah)
Even though I know they’re no good for me
It’s the risk I take for the chemistry
With the bad boys always catching my eye
(Ooh Way, Ooh Way, Ooh Wah)

[Flo Rida]
I know you want me shawty cos I’m a (bad boy)
Hey s-shawty can’t help it she so so addicted to them rougher fellas
With even the alphabet she only sings the crooked letters
Let mamma take all the risks
For that chemistry she like them tougher than leather
Not even the paws, it´s more like a mama bee,
Out lost that´s on the reg´ler,
By any means necessary, girl
She likes them ruthless, that’s my world
It’s not the news it’s what I heard
To get them more the merrier
It’s not a big surprise
I know them bad boys catch your eyes
Look at her walk when I go in disguise
You’ll have them shawty don’t worry you fly

[Alexandra]
Yeah the Bad Boys are always catching my eye
(Ooh Way, Ooh Wah)
I said the bad boys are always spinning my mind
(Ooh Way, Ooh Wah)
Even though I know they’re no good for me
It’s the risk I take for the chemistry
With the bad boys always catching my eye
(Ooh Way, Ooh Wah)
Yeah the Bad Boys are always spinning my mind
(Ooh Way, Ooh Wah)
I said the Bad Boys are always catching my eye
(Ooh Way, Ooh Way, Ooh Wah)
Bad boys, bad boys

Good Night Good Morning lyrics - alexandra burke

(feat. Ne-Yo)

[Alexandra:]
This beat is crazy
This club amazing
This is where I'm gonna be
I'm on the floor don't worry me

And this guy is crazy
His frame amazing
I got my sin all over him
As we dance erotically

His body interlocks with mine
Sends chills all up and down my spine
And I pull him close and whisper in his ear

Oh, I said

What will it be
For you and me
Is it good night?
Or is it good morning?
Is it good night?
Or is it good morning?
Is it good night?
Or is it good morning?

What will it be
For you and me
Is it good night?
Or is it good morning?
Is it good night?
Or is it good morning?
Is it good night?
Or is it good morning?

[Ne-Yo:]
I feel so crazy
She feels amazing
Ooh the way she's touching me
I can't imagine what it would be

Her body interlocked with mine
Sends chills all up and down her spine
She pulls me closer and whispers in my ear

Oh, she said

When will it be
For you and me
Is it good night?
Or is it good morning?
Is it good night?
Or is it good morning?
Is it good night?
Or is it good morning?

What will it be
For you and me
Is it good night?
Or is it good morning?
Is it good night?
Or is it good morning?
Is it good night?
Or is it good morning?

[Alexandra:]
Everything in the room started spinning
Got his voice in my head

...

[Ne-Yo:]
She was turning me on
How she work in the middle
But there's something about her
That get me at middle
She looks me in my eyes and lord she has to say

This beat is crazy
This beat is crazy
This beat is crazy
This beat is crazy

What will it be
(What will it be)
For you and me
(For you and me)
Is it good night?
(Is it good night?)
Or is it good morning?
(oohh)
Is it good night?
Or is it good morning?
Is it good night?
(oohh)
Or is it good morning?

When will it be
(Tell me what will it be-e-e)
For you and me
Is it good night?
Or is it good morning?
(Whoaaaa)
Is it good night?
Or is it good morning?
(Is it good morning?)
Is it good night?
Or is it good morning?
(Is it good morning?)

When will it be
For you and me
(For you and me)
Is it good night?
Or is it good morning?
(Oohh, is it good morning?)
Is it good night?
Or is it good morning?
Is it good night?
Or is it good morning?

So, what will it be
For you and me
Is it good night?
Or is it good morning?

Is it good night?
Or is it good morning?

This beat is crazy.

The Silence lyrics - alexandra burke

You lift me up
And knock me down
I'm never sure just what to feel when you're around
I speak my heart
But don't know why
Cause you don't never really say what's on you mind

It's like
I'm walking on broken glass
I wanna know but I don't wanna ask

So say you love me
Or say you need me
Don't let the silence
Do the talking
Just say you want me
Or you don't need me
Don't let the silence
Do the talking

It's killing me
(love in silence)
It's killing me
(love in silence)
It's killing me
(love in silence)

You let me in
But then sometimes
Your empty eyes just make me feel so cold inside
When I'm with you
It's like rolling dice
Don't know where or how you're gonna make me cry

So say you love me
Or say you need me
Don't let the silence
Do the talking
Just say you want me
Or you don't need me
Don't let the silence
Do the talking

It's killing me
(love in silence)
It's killing me, yeah
(love in silence)
Wooooo
(love in silence)

It's like
I'm (I'm) walking on (walking on) broken glass
I wanna know but I don't wanna ask

'Cause once you say it
You can't take it back
And this the end and please just fake it fast

So say you love me
Or say you need me
Don't let the silence (ooohhhh)
Do the talking
Just say you want me (say you want me)
Or you don't need me (but you don't want me)
Don't let the silence
Do the talking

Wooooooh
(love in silence)

You lift me up
And knock me down
I'm never sure just what to feel when you're around

All Night Long lyrics - alexandra burke

(Uh ho, ooh, oh no)
I see everybody around
But it feels like we're in private
I know you want me so bad
'Cause you just can't seem to hide it

Them lights are movin' to the rhythm of the music
When we're together everything just comes together, baby
So inspired by the moment we can lose it
I hope you're ready

As long as I see the strobe lights I'm dancing all night long
When we're together, baby
I'm feeling alright, you got me all night long
So tell the DJ play it all night long
All night long, all night long, all night long

So tell the DJ play it, tonight the admission is free
Now we're shutting the club down
We're moving out to the streets
All we got left is love now

Feel my troubles pounding to the rhythm of your heartbeat
When we're together, everything just comes together baby
Every motion calls your name, every excuse on me
And I hope you're ready

'Cause as long as I see the strobe lights I'm dancing all night long
When we're together, baby
I'm feeling alright you got me all night long
So tell the DJ play it all night long
All night long, all night long, all night long

So tell the DJ play it, forget all my worries now
Need to put the past behind
Unless this worlds in a hurry no
We stand still in time

Them lights are movin' to the rhythm of the music
When we're together everything just comes together, baby
So inspired by the moment we can lose it
And I hope you're ready

As long as I see the strobe lights I'm dancing all night long
When we're together, baby
I'm feeling alright, you got me all night long
So tell the DJ play it all night long
It all night long, it all night long, it all night long
It all night long, it all night long

It's only you and me together and this feeling's so strong
Wish I could stay like this forever, all night long

Bury Me (6 Feet Under) lyrics - alexandra burke

Six feet under is where I'll be
Six feet under is where I'll be
Six feet under is where I'll be
Love bury me

Is there a doctor in the house?
Someone check my pulse
Cuz it feels like I'm not breathing
And I can't believe it
Wherever I am there he goes
Says he's only joking but I know
That he really means it
Never mind keep it

You gotta give up to get up
And leave when you're fed up
Even though you're what I need
I can't let love bury me
So give up and get out
And leave when you're fed up
Even though you're what I need
I can't let love bury me

Six feet under is where I'll be
Six feet under is where I'll be
Six feet under is where I'll be
Love bury me

Says I'm the one he treasures
But you threw the key in the river
Now how you gonna find it
Oh go fishing is my name
Now move out my way
I got dishes to break
Cuz he says he's already eaten
Tell me where you and her are meeting

You gotta give up to get up
And leave when you're fed up
Even though you're what I need
I can't let love bury me
So give up and get out
And leave when you're fed up
Even though you're what I need
I can't let love bury me

You need to think about this moment
Before you eat around this donut
You ain't got time for me
I'm on to another recipe
See you need to think about this moment
I know that you have chosen
To take a break from me
Now I know that's exactly what I need

You gotta give up to get up
And leave when you're fed up
Even though you're what I need
I can't let love bury me
So give up and get out
And leave when you're fed up
Even though you're what I need
I can't let love bury me

Six feet under is where I'll be
Six feet under is where I'll be
Six feet under is where I'll be
Love bury me

I took the escalator, elevator to the top
How you like me? Yeah, yeah, yeah

Whatever's going down, ladies take the biggest cut
We bring the party, yeah, yeah, yeah

Dumb lyrics - alexandra burke

Baby I'm loving your lips,
Cuz you know how to use them
I wanna fall in your eyes but there's nothing behind them
Look too good to eat, I just can't believe we can't talk about nothin
You so fire hot but that's all you got, you're just all about one thing
So Bye Bye Baby
Could've had it
Should've had it
Would've had it
If you were a little less Dumb

Could've had it
Should've had it
Would've had it
If you were a little less
Dumb Dumb Dumb Dumb......
Bye Bye Baby
Dumb Dumb Dumb Dumb......
Bye Bye Baby

You spend more time on look than the rest of my girl friends
I keep trying to go deep but you don't have a deep end
There's just nothing there you play with your hair,
Stuck in front of that mirror
I need something more, more than a Ken doll,
I can't make it more clearer
So Bye Bye Baby

Could've had it
Should've had it
Would've had it
If you were a little less Dumb

Could've had it
Should've had it
Would've had it
If you were a little less
Dumb Dumb Dumb Dumb....
Bye Bye Baby
Dumb Dumb Dumb Dumb....
Bye Bye Baby

For such a pretty face, boy your such a waste
Dumb Dumb Dumb
For such a pretty face, boy your such a waste
Dumb Dumb Dumb

Could've had it
Should've had it
Would've had it
If you were a little less Dumb

Could've had it
Should've had it
Would've had it
If you were a little less Dumb

Could've had it
Should've had it
Would've had it
If you were a little less Dumb

Could've had it
Should've had it
Would've had it
If you were a little less

Dumb Dumb Dumb Dumb.....
Bye Bye Baby
Dumb Dumb Dumb Dumb.....
Bye Bye Baby

Overcome lyrics - alexandra burke

If you walk with your head down
You can count every step you take
I know every place I've been now
I can count every mistake

I've been hurt so many times before
Almost forgotten how to dream
All that I was running from
Is all I need to save me

I couldn't let you in my heart
My defenses all fall apart
Just when I thought I'd given up
I have overcome

And now I can't let you go, oh no
You showed me something that I've never known
And finally I've found the one
I have overcome
I have overcome

You can never see it coming
There's always that one you can't count out
Who keeps on believing
Nothing's gonna stop me now

I've been hurt so many times before
Almost forgotten how to dream
All that I was running from
Is all I need to save me

I couldn't let you in my heart
My defenses all fall apart
Just when I thought I'd given up
I have overcome

And now I can't let you go, oh no
You showed me something that I've never known
And finally I've found the one
I have overcome

I'm not running anymore
'Cause now there's nothing left to hold me down
Some things are worth fighting for
I see it all, it's waiting for me now

I couldn't let you in my heart
My defenses all fall apart
Just when I thought I'd given up
I have overcome

And now I can't let you go, oh no
You showed me something that I've never known
And finally I've found the one
I have overcome

I couldn't let you in my heart, oh no
My defenses all fall apart
Just when I thought I'd given up
I have overcome

And now I can't let you go, oh no
You showed me something that I've never known
And finally I've found the one
I have overcome, I have overcome

Gotta Go lyrics - alexandra burke

You said you'd never break my heart
And we'll never be apart
So seeing you after so long
Got me spinning round, round, round, round

You said we'd always be together
And to me you were so precious
So after you what happens now?
You got me feeling down, down, down, down

So I think I gotta go 'cause seeing you is so confusing
And I might end up losing again, so I'm thinking, thinking
I think I gotta go before I start to catch a feeling
And you might end up leaving like you left me once before
My heart can't take no more so I think I gotta go

Seeing you after so long
Feels so strange 'cause the feelings ain't gone
Like a roller coaster ride
Got me spinning round, round, round, round

So I think I gotta go 'cause seeing you is so confusing
And I might end up losing again, so I'm thinking, thinking
I think I gotta go before I start to catch a feeling
And you might end up leaving like you left me once before
My heart can't take no more, so I think I gotta go

You see the damage has been done
And now I know you're not the one
Because my heart just wants to run and run and run and run

So I think I gotta go before I start to catch a feeling
You might end up leaving again, so I'm thinking, thinking

So I think I gotta go 'cause seeing you is so confusing
And I might end up losing again, so I'm thinking, thinking
I think I gotta go before I start to catch a feeling
And you might end up leaving like you left me once before
My heart can't take no more

So I think I gotta go 'cause seeing you is so confusing
And I might end up losing again, so I'm thinking, thinking
I think I gotta go before I start to catch a feeling

You Broke My Heart lyrics - alexandra burke

Oooohhh

You know that I would follow you
To the end of the Earth
And maybe I was kinda bold
You shouldn't know my words

I was waiting for the time to remind you
You were in love
What I gave was so incredible
But it was never enough

You took my love
And broke my heart
You took my smile
And tore it apart
You left me crying
Down on the floor
The funny thing is
I still want more
If only you love me like I wanted you to
But you trick me into loving you
You tore me apart
You broke my heart

You charm me with your little ways
You knew the buttons of praise
And you said I was your everything
But boy you couldn't care less
And you said we'd be together forever
Now look what you've done

What I gave was so incredible
But it was never enough

You took my love
And broke my heart
You took my smile
And tore it apart
You left me crying
Down on the floor
The funny thing is
I still want more
If only you love me like I wanted you to
But you trick me into loving you
You tore me apart
You broke my heart

All that I needed
Was someone to hold me
And all that I wanted
Was someone to show me
Just what it is to be loved
And I hoped that someone was you

Oohhhh

You took my love
And broke my heart
You took my smile
And tore it apart
You left me crying
Down on the floor
The funny thing is
I still want more
If only you love me like I wanted you to
But you trick me into loving you
You broke my heart
You broke my heart
You tore me apart
You broke my heart
You broke my heart

Nothing But The Girl lyrics - alexandra burke

Take all the monet from me,
Nothing matters but the girl,
Take the recognition, take all the fame, even take my name
Nothing but the girl,
Take every stitch of clothing I own
And completely naked I would walk the world
People bloggin' talking crazy
I ain't gonna let it break me

Nothing matters but the girl
I dont need material things to represent myself as long as I know who I am
I dont need nothing else not nothing else
Nothing but the girl
No nothing matters
Ill tell you nothing matters but the girl
Nothing but me baby
Nothing but the girl
Said nothing matters
Ill tell you nothing matters but the girl
I said nothing but me baby
No nothing but me baby
I said nothing but me baby

Take my seconds, minutes, hours all my precious time' cause
Nothing matters but the girl
Take my skills away the words I say reason and rhyme' cause
Nothing matters but the girl
Excuse me lord don't mean to interrupt
You know that it gets hard living in this world
But thank you in advance
For making me tell you nothing matters but the girl
Nothing but me baby
Nothing but the girl
No nothing matters
I'll tell you nothing matters but the girl
Nothing but me baby
Nothing but the girl
Nothing matters

I'll tell you nothing matters but the girl
Nothing but me baby
I said nothing but me baby
I said nothing but me baby
Aint nothing in this whole wide world I can't do without nothing matters - but the girl
Special as the air I breathe that's the way I view me
Oh baby baby baby
I said nothing but me baby
I said nothing but me baby
Nothing but the girl
Nothing but the girl
I'll tell you nothing matters but the girl
Nothing but me baby
Nothing but the girl
Nothing but the girl
I'll tell you nothing matters but the girl
Nothing but me baby
Nothing but the girl nothing matters
I'll tell you nothing matters but the girl
Nothing but the girl
Nothing but the girl
I'll tell you nothing matters but the girl
Nothing but me baby
Nothing but the girl nothing matters
I'll tell you nothing matters but the girl
Nothing but the girl
Nothing matters I'll tell you nothing matters but the girl
Nothing but me baby

Ill tell you nothing matters but the girl
Nothing but the girl
I'll tell you nothing matters but the girl
Nothing but me baby
Nothing but the girl

Nothing but the girl
I'll tell you nothing matters but the girl

They Don't Know lyrics - alexandra burke

I went to the doctor to open up my heart
Got my symptoms all mixed up
He didn't know where to start
Ain't no doctor in this world
That can keep a broken heart from falling apart

'Cause they don't know
Oh, they don't know

I went to my mother to show me how to cry
She said "Baby let me shed your tears, I'll make the sacrifice"
But ain't no crying in this world's gonna take the place of mine

'Cause they don't know
They don't know

Some questions have answers
And others just lead you on
Some answers don't answer enough
But I know
The answer is love

But they don't know
Oh, they don't know

I went to my brother to help me understand
Asked him why they're walking by
Don't seem to give a damn
Don't they see the love they pair's walking by empty-handed

'Cause they don't know
They don't know

I went to my father to get some prayer for me
He said I hold my head up high 'cause there's something there for me
Crying but I'm smiling through
'cause suddenly I see

What they don't know
They don't know that

Sometimes,

Some questions have answers
And others just lead you on
Some answers don't answer enough
But I know
The answer is love

But they don't know
Oh, they don't know...

Hallelujah lyrics - alexandra burke

I heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the lord
But you don't really care for music, do ya?
Well, it goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Well, your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you to her kitchen chair
And she broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Well baby I've been here before
I've seen this room and I've walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew ya
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
Love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Well there was a time when you let me know
What's really going on below
But now you never show that to me do you?
And remember when I moved in you?
And the holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Well maybe there's a god above
But all I've ever learned from love
Was how to shoot somebody who'd out drew ya
And it's not a cry that you hear at night
It's not someone who's seen the light
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

Hallelujah [x12]

It's Over lyrics - alexandra burke

Time is held, I can't catch my breath.
Been fighting so long I just ain't got nothing left,
Are we done....Cos I can't take it anymore. I just can't take it.
Been so long since I was close enough to smell your smell.
Telling me the love was still if it is boy I can't tell.
Are we done....Cos I can't take it anymore. Said I just can't take it.

Ooo boy they're ain't no tears to cry
I think it's over,
I think it's over.
We both know this love has died.
I think it's over,
I think it's over.
Cos I just can't take it anymore.

Say I'm trippin' when I tell you that we've changed,
That your friends, my friend and everybody saying the same thinng.
Are we done....Cos I can't take it anymore. Said I just can't take it.
I've been noticing the way you get dressed up to go to the store.
It's right around the corner, but you be gone an hour sometimes more.
I ain't the one and I can't take it anymore. Said I just can't take it.

Ooo boy they're ain't no tears to cry
I think it's over,
I think it's over.
We both know this love has died.
I think it's over,
I think it's over.
Cos I just can't take it anymore. (Just can't take it anymore)

We can be honest, we have no reason to lie.
(Baby we don't have to deny)
Whatever happens we can't say we didn't try.
(Nothing for us to do now but say goodbye)

Ooo boy they're ain't no tears to cry
I think it's over,
I think it's over.
We both know this love has died.
I think it's over,
I think it's over.
Cos I just can't take it anymore.

Ooo boy they're ain't no tears to cry
I think it's over,
I think it's over.
We both know this love has died.
I think it's over,
I think it's over.
Cos I just can't take it anymore.
