Not Leaving You Tonight

Album: Authentic (2013)
  • I'll be by your side when the chips are down
    I know you had some problems but I'm here now
    You'll never be alone long as I'm around
    Good hearts don't belong in the lost and found
    So I kick up the pieces, erase your frown
    And I show my true colors when we paint the town
    I hate to hear you cry, I don't like the sound
    So my love is turned up, sheets get turned down
    I know it hurts now, the drama's the worst now
    It's forth in a hundred but love's a first down
    A quarterback to come back right now
    When a hail Mary works the world, it's like wow
    You down for the count, I ain't having it baby
    They can all go to hell, I know they callin me crazy
    But you're my sunshine when the world gets shady
    A toast to the first lady

    You shouldn't be (you shouldn't be alone) alone (nah)
    I'm not leaving you tonight
    Love you know, I'm right here
    I'm not leaving you tonight
    (Fits in the tantrums ha?)
    Go away, baby
    I'm not leaving you tonight
    Go away, baby
    I'm not leaving you, I'm not leaving you tonight

    Farmer's Boulevard

    Turn yo back on it and the sun still shines
    Grapes get old and they turn into wine
    The deeper the roots, the stronger the vines
    These lines on my face just a sign of the times
    You could cry on my shoulder if you're inclined
    I used to be a Casanova in the lunch room line
    That is more important things occupying my mind
    Like being there for you, breathing the air for you
    Keep trust false and truth to dare for you
    The weight of the world I'm prepared to bear for you
    The haters get cynical and call you spoiled
    Not knowing about the drama in which you embroiled
    The numerous pit falls, the tussle and the toil
    The farmer still want me to put seeds in the soil
    And here comes the harvest, this part's the hardest
    I'm still here in darkness

    You shouldn't be (I'm still here, baby) alone
    I'm not leaving you tonight (And you shouldn't be alone)
    Love you know, I'm right here
    I'm not leaving you tonight
    (Nah nah)
    Go away, baby
    I'm not leaving you tonight
    Go away, baby
    I'm not leaving you, I'm not leaving you tonight

    When I'm alone in my room sometimes I stare at the wall
    And in the back of my mind I hear my conscience call
    When I'm alone in my room sometimes I stare at the wall
    And in the back of my mind I hear my conscience call

    You shouldn't be (I'm still here, baby) alone
    I'm not leaving you tonight (And you shouldn't be alone)
    Love you know, I'm right here
    I'm not leaving you tonight
    (Nah nah)
    Go away, baby
    I'm not leaving you tonight
    Go away, baby
    I'm not leaving you, I'm not leaving you tonight
