The Story Behind Cheap As Hell

 

The song entitled, Cheap As Hell is not just about one man; it's about several men I have dated.  I have grown so weary of dating men who don't want to pay for anything.  I am so sick and tired of men who don't want to buy me anything for Valentine's Day or for my birthday, or for Christmas.  I have had it up to the sky with men who don't want to take me to nice restaurants, but instead they want to "take me out" to fast food establishments.  I HAVE HAD ENOUGH!  So, I decided to write a song about men being cheap. I have learned that I do not have to sit there and go along with this treatment, and neither do other women!  I have decided to stop making excuses for these men, like "Oh. Well he may be trying to save money," or "Next time, he'll probably take me to a nice place. So, I should be patient with him." Well, no more!  I have found out there is no excuse for a cheap man!  If he is cheap as hell, he's just cheap as hell----and that's it! I have opened my eyes and I have stopped trying to be a nice person by accepting cheap men into my life.  I am a valuable person and I want all women to know they are valuable as well, and they do not have to accept cheap men in their lives either!

Lyrics

 

Cheap As Hell-Song Lyrics

 

 

Cheap as hell, Cheap as hell

Cheap as hell, Cheap as hell 

Cheap as hell, Cheap as hell

Cheap as hell

Cheap as hell, Cheap as hell

Cheap as hell, Cheap as hell 

Cheap as hell, Cheap as hell

Cheap as hell

 

I'd like to go to a nice restaurant 

But you never ask me what I want

So all you do is take me to get fast food

You're so selfish

I guess you can't help it

That's why you're cheap as hell

 

Cheap as hell, Cheap as hell

Cheap as hell, Cheap as hell 

Cheap as hell, Cheap as hell

Cheap as hell

Cheap as hell, Cheap as hell

Cheap as hell, Cheap as hell 

Cheap as hell, Cheap as hell

Cheap as hell

 

You bought me nothing for Valentines Day

Or any other holiday

I see you buying yourself things at the store

But you're always telling me you're poor

You're so stingy

You forget all about me

That's why you're cheap as hell

 

Cheap as hell, Cheap as hell

Cheap as hell, Cheap as hell 

Cheap as hell, Cheap as hell

Cheap as hell

Cheap as hell, Cheap as hell

Cheap as hell, Cheap as hell 

Cheap as hell, Cheap as hell

Cheap as hell

 

You say that you really love me

But your actions don't show

You hold your money so very tightly

I think your head will explode

You never want to share

You're being so unfair

You really do need prayer

You're cheap as hell

Though you try to hide it

I know you just can't fight it

I can tell

You're cheap as hell

 

Cheap as hell, Cheap as hell

Cheap as hell, Cheap as hell 

Cheap as hell, Cheap as hell

Cheap as hell

Cheap as hell, Cheap as hell

Cheap as hell, Cheap as hell 

Cheap as hell, Cheap as hell

Cheap as hell

Story

 

The Story Behind Don't Settle

I wrote this song because I wanted to encourage women to stand strong so they do not succumb to the temptation of settling for a man they do not like.  Sometimes as women, we become vulnerable after a break-up or during a dating dry spell. During these moments, we need to pray to God for help so we can withstand the advances of a man who is there at the right place and the right time-----but ALL WRONG for us.  If we give in to Mr. Wrong, we will be settling for less, which is not God's best. Additionally, Mr. Wrong may be wrong for us, but could be right for someone else.  Therefore, it is not a good idea to date Mr. Wrong because he deserves a woman who wants to be with him also.  If we do not like the way he looks; the way he talks; the way he walks; the clothing he wears; his personality; WE SHOULD NOT DATE HIM! We will hurt him in the long run. We will be at fault because we wanted to be in a relationship so badly, and could not wait on God for Mr. Right.  

Lyrics

 

Don't Settle-Song Lyrics

Don't get weak

Cuz he's staring at you

Don't take a peak

Cuz he's wearing a suit

Don't give him a chance

Cuz he's giving you compliments

Don't dance with him

Cuz there's no ring on his hand

You don't want him

So don't try to make it work

Don't talk to him

Cuz he will try to flirt

Don't pretend to try to be his friend

Cuz you know he really wants you and

He'll get hurt in the end

 

Don't settle for Mr. Wrong

Because you're alone

Don't settle cuz you're by yourself now and on your own

Don't settle for Mr. Wrong because he's there

Don't settle cuz he's here right now

No don't you dare

 

Later on you see him again and he's looking good

He is secure and confident in his manhood

He's looking fine cuz he got a makeover

He stopped drinkin'

And you can tell that he's sober

He says he goes to church and sings in the choir

He says he was promoted at work and he's never been fired

He's working hard to impress

Cuz of the way he is dressed

But do not fall for it cuz

He's not the perfect fit

 

Don't settle for Mr. Wrong

Because you're alone

Don't settle cuz you're by yourself now and on your own

Don't settle for Mr. Wrong because he's there

Don't settle cuz he's here right now

No don't you dare

 

He is not the one so you might as well be done

He is not a dime so don't even waste your time

Don't get desperate cuz you haven't met the right guy yet

So dry your tears even though it's been some years

Since you've had a date and you're still waiting for your soulmate

Don't talk to him at all and don't accept his calls

Girl please get a backbone and just leave him alone

Cuz if you settle for less, you will not get the best

 

Don't settle for Mr. Wrong

Because you're alone

Don't settle cuz you're by yourself now and on your own

Don't settle for Mr. Wrong because he's there

Don't settle cuz he's here right now

No don't you dare

The Story Behind Hey, Girl

I wanted to write a song for young girls, as well as women that was motivational and inspirational.  I want them to feel encouraged.  I want them to move forward and not look back at their past.  I want them to be fearless in reaching their goals because God is with them.

Lyrics

 

Hey, Girl-Song Lyrics

Hey, girl

I've got somethin' to tell you girl

God loves you despite your mistakes

Just ask Him for forgiveness

And be on your way

Keep pressing on and don't you ever stop

You've got to move up higher

Cuz yesterday is gone

 

What's up girl

Tell me what's going on

How have you been feeling

You say you're not that strong

What can I do to help you

How can I help you get along

Come out of your depression

Stop thinkin' bout what you've done wrong

 

God loves you despite your mistakes

Just ask Him for forgiveness

And be on your way

Keep pressing on and don't you ever stop

You've got to move up higher

Cuz yesterday is gone

 

Stop whining about not having a man

Get a grip start loving your own life

Take yourself on a trip

Be rooted in God

Worship Him with all your mite

Get your mind off your problems

And create a happy life

 

 

God loves you despite your mistakes

Just ask Him for forgiveness

And be on your way

Keep pressing on and don't you ever stop

You've got to move up higher

Cuz yesterday is gone

 

Hey, girl

I've' got somethin' to tell you girl

You are God's lovely and precious pearl

Know who you are and don't you forget

He's the greatest friend you will ever select

 

God loves you despite your mistakes

Just ask Him for forgiveness

And be on your way

Keep pressing on and don't you ever stop

You've got to move up higher

Cuz yesterday is gone

Story

 

The Story Behind Independent Man

I wrote this song about my failed marriage.  It is extremely important to discuss the roles of the husband and wife before the marriage takes place. This way, there will be no confusion of what is expected from either person.  I should have discussed monetary issues with my fiance before taking him as my husband.  I realized I had different expectations from him in the marriage.  I discovered that I needed an independent man who could manage our entire household on his own---without my help!  I am a traditionalist in that respect and I will not let any man make me feel badly about it. I am old school.  What can I say?  I cannot tolerate any man asking me how much money I have inside of my purse; telling me he needs my help; telling me that our household cannot survive without two incomes; monitoring how many job interviews I have been on in a week; scolding me because the job I really want does not pay me enough.  None of those things worked for me, and they still don't.  I do not blame him for the ruination of our marriage, though.  I really wanted a marriage where the man went to work and took care of all of our household needs. I should have openly communicated my feelings to him about my role as a traditional wife (who also believes in working), as well as what I expected from him as a traditional husband.  I am now aware that two people must know each other very well before they get married.  They must discuss how the marriage will operate on a daily basis in order for it to be successful. They especially need to openly talk about FINANCES and agree on FINANCES!   

Lyrics

 

Independent Man-Song Lyrics

When you go out to work

You make your own money so

Why are you looking at mine

 

When I came into your life

You were paying all the time

When we went out to dine

 

Now you're asking me how much

Money I have inside my purse

Like it's a curse

For you to open your wallet first

 

I just don't understand why

You won't take care of you and I

You've changed and I just want to cry

 

I need an independent man

An independent man

A man who doesn't need me

I need a man who stands alone

A man who takes his throne

Who stands on his own two feet

 

Before we were married you

Were trying very hard to prove

That you could buy and cook all of my food

 

Now you complain about the money I make

For Heaven's sake you need to pay

Attention to the salary you are paid

 

You say you are man enough

To tell me life is really tough

And you need my help

You just keep on lying to yourself

 

All of the sudden I'm supposed to go and change my role

And help you out

I'm gonna shout

You better shut your mouth

 

I need an independent man

An independent man

A man who doesn't need me

I need a man who stands alone

A man who takes his throne

Who stands on his own two feet

 

You are supposed to be a man

So you need to take a stand

And wear a pair of pants

 

You need to change your attitude

Instead of one job you get two

So I can look up to you

 

You need to stop spending your dough

On electronics and clothes

And pay our rent

 

Well don't you look at me

Cuz I am not the one you see

It was you who spent all the money

 

Now you sit in the corner and pout

Cuz I will not help you out

Oh no no no no no

 

What happened to that independent man I used to know

Who could write a check 

And make sure all my needs were met

I really wanna know where did he go

 

I need an independent man

An independent man

A man who doesn't need me

I need a man who stands alone

A man who takes his throne

Who stands on his own two feet

 

I need an independent man

Story

 

The Story Behind Infatuation

I have learned to look at a man's character, rather than his talents, his abilities, or his occupation.  I have also found that a handsome man is not always a catch.  It is important for me to look at how he treats other people.  How does he treat the server at the restaurant?  How does he talk to his co-workers?  How does he treat his family members?  I want to experience more in a relationship than butterflies in my stomach when I am with him.  I want to make sure I am observant of how he lives his life. I want to pay attention to what he is saying.  Is he telling me stories of how he cheated someone else?  Does he happily reminisce about beating someone up?  Does he laugh at other people's misfortune?  These are very serious matters and they should not be ignored.  

I wrote this song because I have learned the importance of looking deeper into a relationship with a man.  Real love is vital to a long, lasting, healthy relationship.  Love is making life for your mate easy, as well as being kind and giving.  I wrote that I heard someone say in a movie that we only receive 80% of what we need in a relationship.  So, I have to see if the other 20% is a deal breaker or not. I need for that 80% to consist of a good character, good morals, and respect for me, as well as others. I can do without the other 20% consisting of trembling hands, wobbly knees, butterflies, and sweaty palms, which equal infatuation. I want more!

 

Lyrics

Infatuation-Song Lyrics

Give me more

I want more

Give me more

I want more

 

Give me more than just a sweaty palm

Give me more than just a dropping jaw

Give me more than just flirtatious eyes

Give me more than just some butterflies

 

I heard a doctor say on the TV

That love is making life for your mate easy

You gotta say

In what way

Can I help you today

 

Give me more

I want more

Give me more 

I want more

Than infatuation

 

Give me more than just a trembling hand

Give me more than just some wobbly knees

Give me more than just a handsome man

Give me more than just the birds and bees

 

I heard someone say in a movie

That we only receive

80% of what we need

So we gotta see

If the other 20

Is a deal breaker for you and me

 

Give me more

I want more

Give me more

I want more

Than infatuation

 

I wanna feel something that's very real

I wanna touch a person that means so much

I wanna hold something that's worth more than gold

I wanna grab a caring and tender hand

I wanna see the person that is for me

I wanna hear the words I love you in my ear

I want a love sent to me from God above

I wanna be an asset not liability 

 

Give me more

I want more

Give me more

I want more

Than infatuation

 

Give me more

I want more

Give me more

I want more

Than infatuation

The Story Behind Intuition

I wrote Intuition about my failed friendships with females.  I can honestly say that I have ignored my intuition concerning practically ALL of my past friendships. I have always heard a still small voice saying, "You should not be friends with her," or "She is not for you," or "She is a witch," or "She is jealous of you," or  "This is all wrong," or simply "DO NOT HANG OUT WITH HER!" Unfortunately, I have gone right ahead into fellowship with female friends, and those friendships would result in drama, discord, jealousy, and hatred toward me.  I have been nice and kind to all of them, and all I received was sadness, disappointment, and heartbreak each time.  

Oprah Winfrey aired a discussion about a woman's intuition on her television talk show many years ago. Oprah told the audience that she trusts her intuition.  She explained, "I believe it's how God speaks to us."  I also believe that God, as well as the Holy Spirit speaks to us through our intuition.  Therefore, I have asked the Lord to forgive me countless times for ignoring my intuition. I have learned to follow what I hear, which is the still small voice of God and The Holy Spirit leading me away from ungodly and unstable female friendships. 

My mother told me there are more people in this world who ARE NOT for me than who ARE for me.  I used to feel as though I was missing out because I didn't have any girlfriends to hang out with. I felt that something was wrong with me because I wasn't socializing with any other girls (like everyone else). In fact, I have gone many years without even ONE girlfriend to hang out with. And you know what?  Since I have been spending more and more time with God, those feelings have left me. I have been so happy and peaceful because of it. Thank you, Jesus!  

If God wants to bring a Godly female friend into my life, He can do that.  If He does not, then that's fine with me.  I do not need the drama or the heartache from a "so-called friend" who does not spend her time in fellowship with the Lord like I do.  I need God, not people!  If I have no friends, then so be it!!!! The Lord is the only one I need!

Now!!!  Whenever I hear that still small voice telling me, "DO NOT HANG OUT WITH HER" or telling me anything else about a potential female friend, I obey it!  I do not entertain those friendships. I do not let them into my life.  I follow my intuition.

Lyrics

 

Intuiton - Song Lyrics

My intuition is telling me

That you are my enemy

And I am not safe

I thought that you really cared for me 

And you would be there for me

I feel so betrayed

 

My intuition said

When we first met

That you could be a threat

 

But I just let this thought pass through my mind

I guess I was just a little bit too blind

I didn't want to believe

That you could be this mean

 

My intuition is telling me

That you are my enemy

And I am not safe

I thought that you really cared for me 

And you would be there for me

I feel so betrayed

 

My intuition let me know

That you are indeed my foe

You really put on a show

 

I cannot continue this relationship

You and I should not fellowship

I was burned but now I've learned

To give myself permission

To follow my intuition

 

My intuition is telling me

That you are my enemy

And I am not safe

I thought that you really cared for me 

And you would be there for me

I feel so betrayed

 

I need to trust my intuition

I must make the right decision

I need to adjust my vision

Whenever I feel opposition

I really need to stop and listen

And know this person is a villan

 

My intuition is telling me

That you are my enemy

And I am not safe

I thought that you really cared for me 

And you would be there for me

I feel so betrayed

The Story Behind Love For Life

I wrote Love For Life about a fictitious man; a man who did not exist.  But if he did exist, this is how I would feel about him.  I created this song about the man of my dreams, and how he would make me feel.  I created a fairy tale that finally comes true for me. I wrote a story about the man of my dreams sweeping me off of my feet, and we live happily ever after.

Lyrics

 

Love For Life - Song Lyrics

The day you opened your mouth

To say hi to me

I was hoping that you could see

My rare qualities

 

You told me in our first meeting

You saw the best of everything

You said I looked so lovely

You wanted me to be your queen

 

You had no doubt

You were in this love for life

Love for life

You had no doubt

You were in this love for life

Love for life

 

I know that your love is so real

You make me safe from harm

And when you're looking at me

I feel just like a movie star

 

And I feel so attracted to you

It's like a dream come true

The electricity is so strong

Between us two

 

I want to shout

That I'm in this love for life

Love for life

I want to shout

That I'm in this love for life

Love for life

 

The love that you've shown to me

Is like no other

No other man has given to me

Except my mother

You are a best friend to me

And I've discovered

The day you proposed to me

You wanted me forever

 

There's no doubt

That we're in this love for life

Love for life

There's no doubt

That we're in this love for life

Love for life

Story

 

The Story Behind On The Lord's Side

I wrote this song about friendships I have had with females down through the years.  Some of them were girls my age and others have been grown women.  But they all have shared the same traits: mean spiritedness, jealousy, hatred, backstabbing, and selfishness just to name a few.  Now, these characteristics did not come forth all at once, nor did they all come from the same female. As I got to know each one of them, I began to notice subtle comments that were highly unfavorable.  In the beginning, the comments were about other people.  Gradually, I began to hear them make snide remarks about me----to my face.  My mom has quoted the saying, "A dog that will take a bone will bring one." This means, when someone is constantly bringing you information about others, do not think for one second they are not taking information about you to others.  

Furthermore, I have heard the saying, "If they do it with you, they'll do it to you."  If a person talks badly about others, most of the time, they are talking badly about you.  I love what the late Dr. Maya Angelou said.  "When people show you who they are, believe them."

I have grown weary of being around females like this.  They were saying they loved God, but their actions were glorifying the devil. I will not tolerate girls or grown women who mistreat others, and who involve themselves in the affairs of others.  

Now I am to the point where I pay close attention to everything that comes from a "potential" female friend's mouth.  When I hear something disparaging come from their mouths, I do not entertain the thought of fellowship with them.  Life is too short to hang out with a phony Christian. I am living for the Lord the best I know how, and I need people in my life who are doing the same.  If they do not fit the criteria I live by, then there is no way I can socialize with them.  I have to maintain my peace with God.

Lyrics

 

On The Lord's Side - Song Lyrics

Are you on the Lord's side

I wanna know

If you're on the Lord's side

Then let it show

Are you on the Lord's side

What's the deal

If you're on the Lord's side

Then keep it real

 

You tell me that God has been good to you

How you trust Him every day

But I never ever hear you say that you are saved

You say that you are on the Lord's side

But everywhere you go

You want to start a fight

I wanna know are you

Living a lie

 

Are you on the Lord's side

I wanna know

If you're on the Lord's side

Then let it show

Are you on the Lord's side

What's the deal

If you're on the Lord's side

Then keep it real

 

I heard you say that you're a blessing to other people

But when I hear you talking to them all I hear is evil

You say that you are on the Lord's side

And you testify that He's your guide

But what I really wanna know if you have Him on the inside

 

Are you on the Lord's side

I wanna know

If you're on the Lord's side

Then let it show

Are you on the Lord's side

What's the deal

If you're on the Lord's side

Then keep it real

 

All you want to do is argue

And tell everybody what to do

What kind of person are you

You are not on the Lord's side

You need to open your eyes

And receive Jesus Christ

Then you'll be on the Lord's side

Story

 

The Story Behind Schizo

Schizo is a song I wrote about a man that I came in contact with a few years ago of whom I believed to be schizophrenic.  I did not write this song to make fun of him or anyone else who suffers from schizophrenia.  Instead, I wanted to express in this song that mental illness is a serious issue, and it definitely cannot be ignored when you are dealing with people.  A schizophrenic person could be your co-worker, your family member, a stranger, or the person you are dating.  Whatever the case may be, schizophrenia does exist and it is very real.  

I did some research about people who suffer from schizophrenia. In my research, I found that schizophrenia is more prevalent in males, than in females. I came across some stories about women who have dated men who suffer from this disorder.  In one of the stories, this woman was dating a man who was acting abnormally; he was verbally and physically abusive; his hygiene was inconsistent; he would be sweet one minute and evil the next; he would have hallucinations about people doing him harm; he would speak erratically; he would laugh at inappropriate situations. These instances are included but not limited to schizophrenia.  

Some of the females I researched found help for these males by way of doctors and medication, and eventually married them.  I was absolutely shocked by their actions.  In my opinion, it is far too difficult to help a male who suffers from a mental illness.  For your own safety, just let him go.

This troubled man has to realize that he has a problem. When or if he is prescribed medication by a doctor, he might remain mentally unstable.  This is why he needs God's help even if he does receive help from a doctor.  Only GOD alone can help him and heal him. You are not God. Do Not try to help him.  If it is the Lord's will for you to be with him and marry him, God will orchestrate it; God will finish what He started. 

Ladies!  You cannot save him!  It is best to pray to the Lord for his healing.  Then, listen to and obey the leading of the Holy Spirit!!! When He (God and/or The Holy Spirit) tells you to stop seeing him, then you need to stop seeing him!   That is it!  On the other hand, there are some things you do not need to pray about.  You need to follow your intuition.  Get out of there when you see something troubling about the man you are seeing.  If you can't seem to stand up and leave him alone, ask the Lord to help you do it.  That is what He is there for.

Lyrics

 

Schizo - Song Lyrics

 

You're a schizo

And I know that I gotta go

 

I have tried to understand you

But it's impossible and I'm always confused

You criticize me in everything I do

I don't even have a clue

I don't know how you could be so rude

But I'm sayin'

I am done with you

 

I realize

And I finally

Opened my eyes

And I know

You're a schizo

And I know

That I gotta go

 

I believe that you have mental problems

And you need a doctor to help you solve them

I don't have to sit here and take this

I know a good man will see how much my worth is

I am sorry I called you a worthless piece of garbage

I did not know that you were mentally sick

I thought that you were just being mean to me

But now I can see that your mind is crazy

I have to escape from this living hell

So I'm leaving you to be by myself

I am quickly running out that door

Cuz I can't even take this anymore

Now that I know that I cannot help you

I will pray that God will help you through

 

I realize

And I finally

Opened my eyes

And I know

You're a schizo

And I know

That I gotta go

 

I have had it up to the sky

With your unimpressive lies

That you have told me time after time

You even tried to act like you cried

You are insane and I can't deny

You really need a psychiatrist

So I'm moving on and you will not be missed

And right now

You are dismissed

The Story Behind Sisters

I wrote this song many years ago because I missed my sister. We would see each other in passing, yet we weren't spending a lot of time together because of work, school, and other obligations.  I missed going to the mall and eating out like we used to.  

This song really means a great deal to me now because I moved from Sacramento, California (where my sister still resides) to Las Vegas, Nevada.  So, we only see each other about 3 times a year.  

I want my sister to know that I love her; I miss her; and I thank God for her.

Lyrics

 

Sisters - Song Lyrics

Sisters we'll always be

Reaching our destiny

Loving each other

Throughout eternity

That's the way God meant it to be

 

There's no reason for us to fight

We're sisters

So let's make things right

Come on let's work things out

That's what love is all about

 

Sisters we'll always be

Reaching our destiny

Loving each other

Throughout eternity

That's the way God meant it to be

 

I know we've had our issues

But these battles should not continue, No

I wanna hang out with you

Just like the way

We used to

I miss being your best friend

So let's just kick it again

 

Sisters we'll always be

Reaching our destiny

Loving each other

Throughout eternity

That's the way God meant it to be

 

Sisters we'll always be

Reaching our destiny

Loving each other

Throughout eternity

That's the way God meant it to be

 

You're my sister

You're my sister

You're my sister

I love you

Yes I love you

I love you

Yes I love you

The Story Behind Thee One

I wrote this song out of frustration and weariness in meeting the wrong men.  I told the Lord that I would rather be single for the rest of my life than to have the wrong man in my life. Instead of the title of the song being The One, I wrote the title as Thee One to represent the chosen man directly sent from God.  

Lyrics

 

Thee One - Song Lyrics

I want

Thee one or no one

In my life

I want 

Thee one or no one

In my life

I want

Thee one or no one

In my life

I want 

Thee one or no one

In my life

 

Sick and tired of playing the dating game

Cuz all these games are played

Just the same

So many guys called by different names

All have caused me so much pain

It's all on you Lord

I will wait 

Though I am weary

I will not faint

 

I want

Thee one or no one

In my life

I want 

Thee one or no one

In my life

I want

Thee one or no one

In my life

I want 

Thee one or no one

In my life

 

Sick and tired of all these perpetrators

Posing as my friendly neighbors

All of them are all manipulators

Who soon become evil traitors

And there are so many jealous haters

Who act like they are innocent daters

So on you Lord 

I will wait

Though I am weary

I will not faint

 

I want

Thee one or no one

In my life

I want 

Thee one or no one

In my life

I want

Thee one or no one

In my life

I want 

Thee one or no one

In my life

The Story Behind Valentines Day

Valentines Day used to be a very excruciating holiday for me to get through.  It was normal for me to feel sad and lonely when Valentines Day came around. This day would always come at a time when there would be no man in my life.  Even though there were men around me, I could not bring myself to go out with just any of them at all, let alone on Valentines Day. So, year after year, I would pray for my soulmate to come and treat me as the queen I was and still am on Valentines Day.  

I believe it was in 2006 when God opened my eyes and showed me something.  He revealed to me that I should give to myself and others on Valentines Day.  Therefore, I ordered flowers, cards, candy, and gifts for myself and my family members. We would go out to dinner as a family too. Oh my goodness!!!!  I felt so good inside.  I actually felt happy on Valentines Day.  I felt just like I did as a kid when I used to give and receive little Valentines Day cards and candy at school; it was so exciting.

I wrote this song because I wanted to give my testimony to help ALL females who suffer on Valentines Day just like I did.  I wanted to let them know that Valentines Day does not have to kick their butts.  As females, we have to know we are royalty.  By treating ourselves in this manner, we can be strong and happy on Valentines Day, even if we don't have dates or boyfriends.  When this holiday rolls around on February 14th, we need to shower ourselves and others with cards, flowers, candy, gifts, dinners, and lots of other things. We need to spread love to our co-workers, neighbors, family members, friends, strangers, and to ourselves each year on Valentines Day.

Valentines Day - Lyrics

So What if  I don't have a date on Valentines Day

I'd rather be alone than talk to some loser on the telephone

I can't do that

But every once in a while

I feel so sad

Ooooh sometimes it hurts me not to have a man

But I gotta take a stand

And wait for a guy that's just my style

 

Even though I don't have a date

I will be okay

On Valentines Day

Even though I might have to wait

I will be okay

On Valentines Day

Even though I don't have a date

I will be okay

On Valentines Day

Even though I might have to wait

I will be okay

On Valentines Day

 

I don't really need a date cuz it's Valentines Day

I'm not gonna cry cuz I feel really good inside

I'm happy and secure about my future

Ooooh I don't have date a loser

Because I'm a queen

And I don't have to settle for a man who's less than a king

 

Even though I don't have a date

I will be okay

On Valentines Day

Even though I might have to wait

I will be okay

On Valentines Day

Even though I don't have a date

I will be okay

On Valentines Day

Even though I might have to wait

I will be okay

On Valentines Day

 

Happy Valentines Day

I bought my own candy and my own flowers

Happy Valentines Day

I had fun with my family for hours and hours

Happy Valentines Day

I am a queen who deserves the very best of everything

Happy Valentines Day

I am royalty who expects nothing less than a king

 

Even though I don't have a date

I will be okay

On Valentines Day

Even though I might have to wait

I will be okay

On Valentines Day

Even though I don't have a date

I will be okay

On Valentines Day

Even though I might have to wait

I will be okay

On Valentines Day

The Story Behind

Valentines Day Part 2 - It's Not Over

I decided to write and produce a remixed continuation of the song, Valentines Day. After Joshland spends many years buying candy, flowers, cards, and gifts for herself and others; and loving herself and others, her dream finally comes true!  Joshland finally has a date on Valentines Day with her future soulmate.  I wanted to create a happily ever after for Joshland.

Valentines Day Part 2 - It's Not Over is a fairy tale, and I love fairy tales!!!

Lyrics

 

Valentines Day Part 2 - It's Not Over - Lyrics

Hey Joshland

I heard what you were sayin' before

About not havin' a date on Valentines Day

And what's this I hear about you buyin' your own candy and your own flowers?

What's up with that?

It shouldn't be that way

You know what I mean?

 

So what if I don't have a date on Valentines Day

 

You shouldn't be alone

 

I'd rather be alone 

Than talk to some loser on the telephone

 

And you know I ain't no loser

 

I can't do that

But every once in a while 

I feel so sad

Oooh sometimes it hurts me not to have a man

 

You shouldn't hurt

But I gotta take a stand

And wait for a guy that's just my style

 

And that's me

 

Even though I don't have a date

I will be okay

On Valentines Day

Even though I might have to wait

I will be okay On Valentines Day

Even though I don't have a date

I will be okay

On Valentines Day

Even though I might have to wait

I will be okay On Valentines Day

 

But an incredible woman like you shouldn't be alone on Valentines Day

In fact

You shouldn't have to be alone------period

You know what I'm sayin'

 

Thank you, but I'm okay

 

And I understand that

But I want you to know that I've been watchin' you for a long time

You know?

I jsut been watchin' you and admirin' you

You just so--beautiful inside and out

And I gotta let you know how I feel

 

I'm really flattered, but.......

 

Check it out

So it's Valentines Day and you ain't got no date

Well I'm here, girl

I've come to save the day

I know you sick and tired of bein' all alone

So let me get your number so I can call you on the phone

I'm gonna call you up and ask you on a date

I'm gonna take you out to dinner

You ain't got to pay

I'm gonna bring you candy

I'm gonna bring you flowers

I'm gonna look into your eyes and talk to you hours and hours

And when the night is over

I'm gonna whisper in your ear

I don't wanna be too forward but I always want you near

Cuz I wanna be your man and not just your date

This is only the beginning Happy Valentines Day

 

Well, okay, you can call me

 

I won't disappoint you

Story

 

The Story Behind Waiting

I wrote this song to encourage myself in the Lord just like David in the Bible did.  I kept meeting different men who seemed to be good for me in the beginning, but down the road, I found they were not. I was so tired of crying and being disappointed because the same thing would keep happening. Through spending more and more time with God as well as fasting, I finally got to the point where I told the Lord that I would be happy while I waited on Him to bring me the man I was supposed to have.  Even though it looked hopeless to me, I told God that I would keep my faith in Him while I waited for Him to show me the right man.  

Psalm 46:10 says, "Be still and know that I am God."  I have learned to relax and enjoy my life while I wait on the Lord.  When the time is right, He will send my soulmate to me.  I know the Lord's timing is the best timing.

Waiting - Lyrics

I'm gonna wait

I'm gonna wait

I'm gonna wait

I'm gonna wait

 

I'm waiting upon you Lord

I'm waiting for you to show

Me the right guy

Cuz I need to know

I'm waiting

I'm waiting upon you Lord

I'm waiting for you to show

Me the right guy

Cuz I need to know

I'm waiting

 

I've made so many dating mistakes

Tell me Lord

How much time does it take

For that special man who makes me feel like he's for real

I need a guy who is true and is not fake

 

Sick and tired of the dating ups and the downs

All the smiles and frowns

There's something different every day

I am feeling happy

Sometimes I am lost and found

I just go in and out

Round and round

And up and down

 

I'm waiting upon you Lord

I'm waiting for you to show

Me the right guy

Cuz I need to know

I'm waiting

I'm waiting upon you Lord

I'm waiting for you to show

Me the right guy

Cuz I need to know

I'm waiting

 

Countless times I've met so many different guys

Trying to find out if he is the one

I really believe he is 

What could be better than this

And then I'm stunned

Cuz he is not the one

So then we are done

This really ain't no fun

 

Lord I know you will supply

Me with the right guy

Without me having to compromise

Any of my spiritual ties

So I'm not gonna question why

I'll wait and be satisfied

I'll be happy and will not cry

Cuz I'm waiting on the right guy

 

I'm gonna wait

I'm gonna wait

I'm gonna wait

I'm gonna wait
