Angela Brown - Respect Yourself

Can anybody tell me what's going on?
Can you tell me what's going down?
I know a place, need a little love in our hearts
You know what's going down

Does anyone know?
What's going down?
Does anyone know?
Does anyone know?

lonely hearts don't die
they live to sing a song
when they open up
it is never over
'till the long days are gone
I am a factor of illusion
Whose vision is an
inherent mark through time.
Quietly, I withhold
an emotion, an intrusion
Who has
paced each step,
silently...
The voice within,
somberly calling,
Negating
insecure thoughts
of denial.
An inclusion
from compromise,
Negating motivation...
A state of mind.
Allusions I am
the mirror image of you
You are of me
it in my voice
You see my actions
of who we have become,
My voice carries on,
When you love someone
Who does not love you back
It hurts, the beast in the lyrics
The buckle in the heart
Morning the love I lost,
I am the mirror image
When love hurts
I become an
invisible enemy of hope,
trust cannot hold loose sand.
I am the image of love
Love don't regret
I hold emotions,
I withhold the pain
of being denied, love
what once was mine
Within the image of pain
became loss and hurt
My tears lie
of broken promises, of
Circumstance,
Feelings come and go
images to let go
When you took away
the blame, the guilt,
When you took away
the love, the joy, I admit
You took away my heart.
How many times
must I walk out
Before you
call my name?
Promise me
To keep in touch.

We got to get ourselves
Together we're together
Come down with me
To meet at this place
You know what is going down.
