Okay, it's Karaoke time folks! Well, not really but since many of you were constantly bugging me for lyrics to certain Shanice songs, I finally caved in and lo and behold, the "Shanice Song Lyrics" section was born! Some of the selections here I was able get off from the CD album jackets, but for a lot of the other songs I had to actually pop in the CD and play the tracks over and over and over until I was able to get them down as accurately as I possibly could. So, I might have made some mistakes here and there so please don't crucify me for it because I'm only human!:-)

Current Selection:



No 1/2 Steppin'

all the boys
want to know my name
when I don't tell them
they get upset
breakin' hearts
ain't my claim to fame
and if I had a dime for all they tried
I'd be a millionaire yet
when I'm out
hangin' with my friends
people say we think we're cute
when we're together
yeah, we play to win
and if you're gonna stare
what do we care
so what's it mean to you

(Chorus)
no half steppin'
ya gotta do it right
in the middle of the day-o
or in the middle of the night

no half steppin'
show just what you got
and don't give up for nothin'
if you think you're hot

(verse 2)
I'm not about
playing games
I got too much that
I wanna do
don't have the time
to sit down and explain
and if you're gonna try and figure out
here's what I say to you

(Repeat chorus)

(verse 3)
when I sing
I do my best
to let you know
what I feel
when on the stage
I'm put to the test
ya better believe
after you leave
you're gonna know the deal

(Repeat Chorus)

Just A Game

if you're not
in love with me
why do you
pretend to be
could it be
it's all just a game
to you

I put all
of my faith in you
trying to be
what you wanted
me to
still it seems
it's all just a game
to you

I've tried hard
to understand it
I don't know
whether or not
you planned it
can't you see
that love is made
for two

if you go
I won't regret
won't spend time
trying hard to forget
I'll just know
it was all just a game
to you

I've tried hard
to understand it
oh no
I don't know
whether or not
you planned it
can't you see
that love is made
for two
that love is made
for two
that love is made
for two
but it's all just a game
to you

I Love Your Smile

sittin' in my class, just drifting away
staring into the windows of the world
i can't hear the teacher, his books don't call me at all
i don't see the bad boys tryin' to
catch some play...

(chorus)
cause i love your smile
ilove your smile

the clock at work says three,
and i
wanna be free
free to scream, free to bathe, free to paint
my toes all day
my boss is lame you know, and so is the pay
i'm gonna put my new black mini
on my charge anyway

(chorus)

(bridge)
time came and showed me your direction
now i know i'll never ever go back
taught me that
i can be a better girl with love you give
you rock my world
you dig

i'm showin' the life that i'm livin
this is the life that i have,
and it's given to you
yeh and it's true
la-d-da
twinkley d
do you
believe in a girl like me
Shanice is the one
for you to be with
but when I'm caught
all alone
i start fessin'
it's from a state of depression
and the thunder clouds of doubt move in
i begin to wonder "do you still love me?" but after that
my whole world is beautiful


blow branford
blow

(bridge)

smile...psych

But this loving feeling
Gonna be a feeling I feel forever more

As long as there's forever baby

Silent Prayer

i send to you my silent prayer
before i sleep at night
i send to you my silent prayer
baby so you'll be all right

every morning i think of you
i just can't shake my dreams...no, no
i read the paper and watch the news
i don't know what it means

when you do what what you got to do
you must know that i'm there with you
every breath that i take...i hope and i pray
sweet baby... baby be ok

(chorus)

silent prayer
silent prayer
silent prayer
i send to you my silent prayer

i hold a picture of a golden sunset
and i'll take your hand
we're gonna walk down that promised land
just like we planned

cause i know what i'm gonna do
just as soon as i'm back with you
every breath that i take...i hope and i pray
sweet baby... baby be ok

(chorus)

If I Never Knew You

(Shanice duet with Jon Secada)

Jon:
If I never knew you
If I never felt this love
I would have no inkling of
How precious life can be

And if I never knew you
I would never have a clue
How at last I'd find in you
the missing part of me

In this world so full of fear
Full of rage and lies
I can see the truth so clear
In your eyes
So dry your eyes

And I'm so grateful to you
I'd have lived my whole life through
Lost forever
If I never knew you

Shanice:
If I never knew you
I'd be safe but half as real
Never knowing I could feel
A love so strong and true

I'm so grateful to you
I'd have lived my whole life through
Lost forever
If I never knew you

Jon:
I thought our love would be so beautiful

Shanice:
Somehow we made the whole world bright


Both:
I never knew that fear and hate could be so strong
All they'd leave us were these whispers in the night
But still my heart is singing
We were right

Shanice:
If I never knew you
If I never knew this love
I would have no inkling of
how precious life can be

Jon:
There's no moment I regret
Since the moment that we met
If our time has gone too fast I've lived at last

Both:
I thought our love would be so beautiful
Somehow we'd make the whole world bright

Shanice:
I thought our love would be so beautiful
We'd turn the darkness into light

Both:
And still my heart is singing
We were right

Jon:
We were right
And if I never knew you
I'd have lived my whole through

Shanice:
Empty as the sky

Both:
Never knowing why
Lost forever
If I never knew you

This Time

[Kiara]
I removed your picture from my wall
Now what used to be a house too big
Is now a room too small
Everytime I close my eyes I'd realize
I couldn't find enough things to do
I never really got over you

[Shanice]
I wrote you letters
I got no reply
And just when I was walking out on Love
To my surprise
Don't you wanna come inside
Where it's warm and dry
Instead of standing in the doorway
With tears in your eyes

[chorus]
This time -- I won't back down
This time -- I'll stand my ground
I don't think you realize
What went on inside
Now I'm never gonna give up
Until I'm back by your side

[Shanice]
I fought off heartaches, one by one
And when I was about to give up
I'd realize the day was gone
Everytime I'd close my eyes
I'd see you cry
I can't forget the look on your face
Baby when I said goodbye

[Kiara]
I read your letters each and every night
With intent and pen in hand
I was much too weak to write
Every night I'd pace the floor until
I couldn't take it anymore
I was just about to give up
Then you opened the door

CHORUS

[Kiara]
Before we went wrong, you know
We used to be so right
I know we should surrender to love
But we gave up without a fight

[Shanice]
I just wanna let you know
I never should've let you go
Boy I wanna be back in your arms
So let's try it once More

CHORUS (3 Times and fades)
