Understand – Christina Aguilera Lyrics

I made you think, you don’t understand.

I used to think that happiness could only be something
That happened to somebody else
Everybody believed, everybody but me, yeah yeah
And I’ve been hurt so many times before,
That my hope was dying, so sick of trying
Everybody could see, everybody but me, yeah yeah
But then you came into my life, you opened up my softer side
And now I can see into your eyes
And suddenly, I realize.

I made you think, you don’t understand
All the times you didn’t understand,
Why you couldn’t just be my man.
I made you think, you don’t understand
There were many walls you had to climb,
If you really wanted to be mine.
I made you think, you don’t understand
After all the hoops I put you through,
Now I see that I’m in love with you

Now, I hope you finally understand.

So many tears I’ve had to cry,
But you had many more of your own you had to try
But you stuck it out and you’re here with me now, yeah yeah
And rememberin’ the days I pushed away your love,
You called my bluff and you still stayed around,
Yeah you figured me out
Said, you got me down
And there’s no way to lie to you, you know me better than I do

Baby, ooh, you see me through,
I’d be no good without you.

I made you think, you don’t understand
All the times you didn’t understand,
Why you just couldn’t be my man
I made you think, you don’t understand
There were many walls you had to climb (yeah)
If you really wanted to be mine (ooh)
I made you think, you don’t understand
After all the hoops I put you through (through)
Now I see that I’m in love with you

Now, I hope you finally understand

Oh.

Baby, won’t you listen now
Can’t you see just what I’m talking about?
Said baby won’t you listen now
Can’t you see just what I’m talking about?

Time went on, and I was wrong
To keep my distance for so long.
So afraid, you wouldn’t stay
But you never turned away

Always right by my side
You’re forever in my life
Don’t you go
‘Cause now I know
That in you I found a home.

Now I can see into your eyes
Suddenly, I realize.

I made you think, you don’t understand
All the times you didn’t understand
Why you just couldn’t be my man
I made you think, you don’t understand
There were many walls you had to climb,
If you really wanted to be mine
I made you think, you don’t understand
After all the hoops I put you through
Now I see I’m in love with you.

Now, I hope you finally understand.

I made you think, you don’t understand.

Back In The Day – Christina Aguilera Lyrics.

What we’re gonna do right here is go back
Way back, back into time

Yeah, yeah-yeah

(Donny Hathaway, Leena Horne)
(Miss Aretha, (The Real Thing) James Brown, Billie Holiday)
(Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight, Louis Armstrong)
(Minnie Riperton, Otis Redding, Etta James)

Back in the day, they used to say
Play that song, get it going, and the band played
And still today, you hear us say
Play that song all night long, Mr. DJ
Though times have changed,
It’s still the same
We all need a minute to get away
So let it go and feel the flow
If you’ve got soul, let the world know

We’re gonna set the mood (set the mood off right)
Gonna go back to an old school groove (go back to an old school groove)
Gonna rewind to another time
When the originators, innovators were alive, yeah

Here we say now
So break out the Marvin Gaye and Etta James
Your Lady Day, and Coltrane
Turn up your 45’s, bring back to life
The sound and vibe of yesterday
Open your mind, enjoy the ride,
Live out tonight and grab that Soul Train

Take it back, take it
Back in the day, back in the day
Oh baby
Back in the day, back in the day
Won’t you take me back?
Back in the day, back in the day
I’ll do it
Back in the day, back in the day

Ohh yeah

Y’all remember back in the day, you dig
Ray Charles, Nat King Cole, Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald

Yeah
Now “Chain Of Fools” and “Respect”
Was the anthem of a woman, Aretha said
“What’s Going On”, “Let’s Get It On”
Such classic songs, don’t forget them
Though times have changed
They still remain my inspiration everyday
So give it up for the ones
Who came before, opened up that door

We’re gonna set the mood
(we’re gonna) (set the mood)
Gonna go back to an old school groove
(go back) (to an old school groove)
Gonna rewind to another time
(rewind) (another time)
When the originators, innovators were alive

So break out the Marvin Gaye and Etta James
Your Lady Day, and Coltrane
Turn up your 45’s, bring back to life
The sound and vibe of yesterday
(the sound and vibe of yesterday)
Open your mind, enjoy the ride,
Live out tonight and grab that Soul Train

Take it back, take it
Back in the day, back in the day
Oh baby
Back in the day, back in the day
Won’t you take me back?
Back in the day, back in the day
I’ll do it
Back in the day, back in the day

So get up, re-live it
Gotta let yourself flow
Give up your praise
Come celebrate
Just get up, get on it
Get yourself on the floor
Don’t back away (don’t back away)
Come celebrate (gonna celebrate, yeah)

So break out the Marvin Gaye and Etta James
Your Lady Day, and Coltrane
Turn up your 45’s, bring back to life
The sound and vibe of yesterday
(the sound and vibe, alright yeah)
Open your mind, enjoy the ride,
Live out tonight and grab that Soul Train

Takin’ back in the day, day
Back in the day, back in the day
Back in the day, back in the day
Back in the day, back in the day
Back in the day, back in the day

Oh baby, I’ll do it
Oh baby, ohh yeah yeah woah woah yeah

What Decade Or Era Do You Find Particularly Fascinating?

I am into fashion. I’m not high maintence or anything. I love the whole 30s and 40s fashions. The only way I can fully explain which time frame I love the most is Christina Aguilera’s music video for her 2007 single “Ain’t No Other Man” off her album “Back To Bacis.” That whole album, her look and music style just turned me out. I love it!

I am into history as well. The depression sucked. The one in the 30s I mean. Somehow though the rich always knew how to party and dress to impress. The flashly dresses, heels, and hats were woren for the ladies. The gentlemen wore suits and shiny shoes. Nowadays, men only were those for weddings and anything like that. Cigars and alcohol were on hand and Jazz was the main music genre of that time. Who would not love it? I wouldn’t.

Although I love these decade the most there is a second era that I have recently fallen for and you can blame The Vampire Diaries for this. Especially the second season. I love 1800s fashion too! I love the corsets! The poofy tooles of the women and girls dresses. Men still wore the suits and shiny shoes. However, this time around they got by horse and buggy. Everything was homemade. Things were simplier. No facebook drama to worry about like some of us. I’d like to go to both of these time zones and dress myself up in all the clothing from each era.

Who Needs Love With Christina Aguilera Song Titles.

I get [so emotional] at times. I’m a girl, it happens a lot. I’ve been [blessed] with the things I have. But it’s so [obvious] that I won’t find love of my own like everybody else. They always say [love will find a way]. Really? Apparently my [reflection] shows a different story. I want to be [somebody’s somebody] that’s [what a girl wants] especially this girl. Where’s my favorite song [genie in a bottle] by [CHRISTINA AGUILERA] at?

[I’m ok] with rejection. Always have actually. People can [walk away] from you so fast that sometimes you wouldn’t notice they were gone. I want someone to [love me for me] isn’t that so hard to ask? It’s [impossible] to find Mr. Right where I’m from. Everybody says I’m [beautiful] but [the voice within] tells me another story. I’d to [soar] over the sky and find some place new and be a [fighter] in my own right. I hate feeling [underappreciated]. So I continue to [keep singing my song] while you continue your [dirty] thoughts for the pretty girl. Since she’s [STRIPPED]. 

[Ain’t no other man] for me now. It actually [makes me wanna play] because [back in the day] that’s all I wanted was to be in a relationship. The single me is [here to stay] and if anybody decides to [enter the circus] well then have [mercy on me]. [Welcome] to my life. If you’re a [nasty naughty boy] well looks like [I got trouble]. I hope you don’t [hurt] me. If you [save me from myself] then I’d [understand] you are [the right man] for me. Because I’m a [BACK TO BASICS] kind of girl. 

You have to be careful though. [I am] kind of a [Prima Donna]. You don’t have a clue of the girl I am. I am definitely [not myself tonight] but I don’t even know my normal self. [All I need] is to feel loved. If you don’t treat me right [my girls] will show you not to do that again. [I hate boys] so better not act like one. If [you lost me] once then you never get me back. Our love won’t be like [elestic love]. No matter how hard you try. I’m [stronger than ever]. Hell, I’m even [BIONIC!]
