LYRICS: Bad Habits (BLACKsummers’night 2009)

June 9, 2009

After listening to this song and hearing the changed lyrics. Instead of changing the lyrics at this previous post, I decided to deem that version Bad Habits (Live 08) and this one Bad Habits (BLACKsummers’night 2009). Hope that doesn’t cause any confusion. As always, if you see mistakes correct them, and I’ll add in the changes, no problem. ~Chantay/LMN

BAD HABITSMAXWELL
Composer(s) – Hod David & Musze

Ahhh wahhhh, ahhh waahhh lady
Lately, Lady
Make me queasy
Don’t speak no sound
I want you to prove it to me in the nude
Addicted to the way you move

Honey, if anything ever should change in you
Don’t worry I’m standing still
I’m moving with the right wheel

Chorus:
This is the highest cost,
Take you and make you off
Live you and leave you lost
Will you forgive me?

Assed (Asked?) out all over town
Drags you and keeps you down
Two times in a day around
Will you forgive me?

Verse – 1

I can’t control the feeling
Girl cause I know you’re here
I fill you from the floor to the ceiling
Girl, I’ll feel you when you comb your hair

Lady, when we lock it low (ah, ah)
We get together, it’s an overdose
I’m slippin’, I’m here, I’m on my knees
I feels my heart’s about to explode

Chorus:
This is the highest cost,
Take you and make you off
Live you and leave you lost
Will you forgive me?

Asked (Asked?) out all over town
Drags you and keeps you down
Two times and I take a round
Will you forgive me?

Verse – 2
Baby, to tell the truth
When I’m sober I jonez for you
When its over I’m overdue (huh)
Girl, its no one as bad as (no one as bad as you)

You got me, you got me
You got me
Slippin around with it
Around with it, awhile

You got me sick with this love, baby
I’m so, I’m so in love
I can’t come down

Chorus:
This is the highest cost, oh
Take you and make you off
Live you and leave you lost (baby)
Will you forgive me? (will you forgive me?)

Asked (Asked?) out all over town (ah)
Drags you and keeps you down (and I know)
Two times and I take a round
Will you forgive me?

Verse – 3
You’re my bad habit baby
You’re my, you’re taking
My soul, down to the level
Can’t escape the way you got me locked up baby
I gotta break from you, break from you
Break from you

Chorus:
This is the highest cost
Take you and make you off
Live you and leave you lost
Will you forgive me?

Asked (Asked?) out all over town (…assed (asked?) out)
Drags you and keeps you down
Two times and I take a round
Will you forgive me?

**music break**

will you forgive me
will you forgive me
will you forgive me

will you forgive me (maaaaahhhh)
Assed (Asked?) out all over town
Drags you and keeps you down
Two times and I take a round
Will you forgive me?

I can’t control the feelin’ (feelin’, feelin’, feelin’, feelin’) huh uh
I can’t control the feelin’ (feelin’, feelin’, feelin’, feelin’) ha ha
I can’t control the feelin’ (feelin’, feelin’, feelin’, feelin’, feelin’)
I can’t control the feelin’ (feelin’, feelin’, feelin’, feelin’)

In my soul, soul
In my soul, soul (soul or song here?)

Music until the end…

5DAYSofBLACK equals BSN plus Pretty Wings

June 4, 2009

If you haven’t checked back at amazon.com after pre-ordering your copy of MAXWELL – CD/DVD deluxe combination (pre-order) or CD (pre-order), (and I SERIOUSLY hope you have gotten your copy ordered) then you may have missed the following information.

Product Description: Limited Edition CD & DVD Set Special Packaging DVD Includes: 5DAYSofBLACK Inspired by BLACKsummers’night and “Pretty Wings” Music Video

BLACKsummers’night is the heavily anticipated new studio album from groundbreaking modern soul artist Maxwell. BLACKsummers’night is the first full-length Maxwell release since Now, his critically-acclaimed third studio album, debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 in August 2001. This album is the sensuous opening installment of the artist’s monumental BLACKSUMMERS’NIGHT trilogy. Striving for an emotional authenticity and real world sound for the album, the entire album was recorded live in the studio with an a-list ensemble of elegantly sympathetic musicians.

More  P R A I S E for MAXWELL’s upcoming smash hit:

Billboard, May 30,2009
“The Brooklyn-born singer croons a heartbreaking ode to letting go of a relationship. It’s a gorgeous ballad that ushers in a long-overdue welcome return to one of R&B’s most talented and original artists.”

Time Out New York, May 21-27, 2009
If leadoff single’Pretty Wings’, is any indication [of what is to come] we’ll be waiting impatiently for each and every update.”

MAXWELL Relished His Time Out Of The Spotlight

May 9, 2009

‘You want to know somebody’s around you not because of what you could offer,’ he says of eight-year break.
By Shaheem Reid

NEW YORK — Maxwell said you can’t just go up to a pregnant woman and say, “Blue eyes, red hair and a girl.” Well, the same is true for the neo-soul singer’s music.

“The way I make good music, it’s not about what’s expected of me,” he said recently after a Manhattan reception for his upcoming CD. “It’s hard to make good music when you’re thinking about what somebody wants you to do.”

So he didn’t think about what the fans or his record label wanted. As we say in the ‘hood, Max did him. It’s been eight years since he released his last album.

“It was a lot easier than I thought it would be,” he said about his prolonged vacation. “It was a lot easier than I thought it was to enjoy. [My career] started when I was 21. I don’t want to complain about my life, because I don’t want to sound crazy to a person that’s living a life. I’ve been blessed. But the common things people take for granted, I never had for a long stretch, such as going out on the train.”

Max was one of R&B’s leading men when he first hit the scene, and considering how young he was and what he accomplished in such a short time span (his debut was released in 1996), he seemed destined to be one of the all-time greats. But with his career still in its prime, he chilled for close to a decade.

“I feel like I’ve relished these few years, where I got to kick it, where I got to meet girls who didn’t know who I was, where they would be like, ‘What’s your name?’ ” he said. “Knowing you’re appreciated for you as a person was something that was very easy to be into for a while.

“What tends to happen when records are coming out and all the things that come around you, you’re never sure [how genuine people are],” he added. “I’m very insecure, and I want to know people appreciate real things. You want to know somebody’s around you not because of what you could offer or who you are.”

Max seems to have put his insecurities aside for now. He just released the single “Pretty Wings” from the album Black, the first in his trilogy of LPs to be released over the next three years.

“I wanted to be like, ‘I like how this sounds,’ ” he said of his pressure-free recording process this time around. ” ‘I don’t care if people buy it or not. It makes me feel good.’ ”
