Photographs

  • Here's a little story I've gotta tell
    'Bout this boy I know so well
    Back in the day was cool and all
    Fell in love, I fell in love
    Thought he was the one for me
    Other boys I could not see
    And look what happened to our love
    I'm like how could it be?

    It should have been me and you
    It could have been you and me
    But boy you broke my heart and now I'm standing there
    It should have been me and you
    It could have been you and me
    Now all I got are these photographs

    All I've got, all I've got
    All I've got are these photographs
    All I've got, all I've got
    Is nothing without you, you, you
    Got nothing without you, you, you
    Got nothing without you

    Now baby it's killing me
    I'm saying it's killing me
    The fact that you ain't around
    Baby I'm falling down
    I need me a remedy, been looking for remedies
    I need you to be around, baby I'm hurting now
    I know you're a better man
    When I was your girl
    This land is a better land
    When you're in my world
    Today will be better babe
    If it were like yesterday
    So happy and lovely hey, hey, hey

    All I've got, all I've got
    All I've got are these photographs
    All I've got, all I've got
    Is nothing without you, you, you
    Got nothing without you, you, you
    Got nothing without you

    All I've got are these photographs
    I remember when I used to make you laugh
    I don't wanna be stuck in the past
    But you're all that I have that I had
    And I don't wanna lose what we built this far
    This is me and you, you're my superstar
    I'd give anything, baby here's my heart
    My heart, my heart

    My heart don't stop, my heart be beating over
    My loving never stop, even though that it's over
    Girl I've been reminiscing when I play that Casanova
    Way back when we was kissing on your grand-mama's sofa
    Girl I got us lovey dovey on my photo album
    I got them pictures back when I was rocking Calvin Klein
    You had your GUESS jeans on looking sexy, oh huh girl
    Why could it not be the one?

    Why? Why? Why?
    Why couldn't I be the one? (Why? Why? Why?)
    Why couldn't you be the one? (Why? Why? Why?)
    Why couldn't you be the one? (Why? Why? Why?)

    All I've got, all I've got
    Is nothing without you
    All I've got, all I've got
    Is nothing without you, you, you
    Is nothing without you, you, you
    Is nothing without you

    All I've got, is nothing without
    All I've got, is nothing without
    All I've got
    All I've got are these photographs Writer/s: Michael Mchenry, Alain Gordon Whyte, Jean Baptiste Kouame, Allan Pineda, Will Adams
