Lyric Love

25 May

This past friday I had the pleasure of seeing The Foreign Exchange live at Masquerade here in Atlanta, GA. They have been a favorite of mine for a while so seeing them live was a treat. One of my favorite songs by them is “Take Off Your Blues.” Read on…
Lyrics to Take Off The Blues :

By The Foreign Exchange
(feat. Darien Brockington)

[Phonte:]
(Mmmmmmm, haaah-hahh-hahhh…)
You might, you might, you might, you might as well…
(Mmmmmmm, haaah-hahh-hahhh, haaah-haah…)

After all is said and done you’re next to me
And when the sun goes down, you’re feeling things you’ve never felt before
Nothing left to say to ease your fears
But I know just what to do
Let me take good care of yooo-oohhh-ooou

[Chorus:]
Kick off your shoes
Take off the blues and come to me
So much to do, so much is new for you to see
You might as well-lll, come a little closer
Girl, don’t make me wait too long for you

After all is said and done (said and done)
And there’s nothing left to share (left to share)
It’s the morning after, I watch you laying there (just wanna watch you lying there)
Always told that you should not give in to love (LOVE)
But saying no is so hard to do (so harrrd…)
‘Cause when the feeling’s right, you might as well, yeah

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]
Just, want your attention
Ex-cuse my intentions
Keep your feelings intact – Don’t wanna hurt nobody, let me say it again
There’s, no need to mention
For, this I’ve been wishing
There’s no turning back
Lady, please take my hand

Let’s dance…

[Stan Graham plays a trumpet solo]

[Chorus x2]
