Location Lyrics by Khalid

Location is the 8th track on my playlist, The Best R&B Ever. Khalid’s voice has a unique baritenor timbre. I love the way his vocals blend with the band sound and the subtle call and response, background vocals. I included this song on the playlist because the arrangement has a good vibe with a good degree of musical complexity.

Send me your location, let’s
Focus on communicating, ’cause
I just need the time and place to come through
(A chance to come through)
Send me your location, let’s
Ride the vibrations
I don’t need nothing else but you

At times I wonder why I fool with you
But this is new to me, this is new to you
Initially, I didn’t wanna fall for you
Gather my attention it was all for you, so don’t
Take advantage, don’t leave my heart damaged
To understand that things go a little bit better when you plan it

Oh, so won’t you send me your location, let’s
Focus on communicating, ’cause
I just need the time and place to come through
Send me your location, let’s
Ride the vibrations
I don’t need nothing else but you

I don’t wanna fall in love off of subtweets so
Let’s get personal
I got a lot of cool spots that we can go
Tell me what’s the move and I got you
I’m only acting like this ’cause I like you
Just give me the vibe to slide then, oh
I might make you mine by the night, then

Send me your location, let’s
Focus on communicating, ’cause
I just need the time and place to come through
(A chance to come through)
Send me your location, let’s
Ride the vibrations
I don’t need nothing else but you (I don’t need nothing else but you)

Ride, ride, ride, come and vibe with me tonight
I don’t need nothing else but you
(I don’t need nothing else but you)

Ride, ride, ride, come and vibe with me tonight
I don’t need nothing else but you
Nothing else but you

Heaven And Earth Lyrics by Kenny Lattimore


Heaven And Earth is the 4th track on my playlist, The Best R&B Ever. This is a beautiful song that I can see on a wedding playlist, but its lyrics have purpose and meaning through all phases of the marriage. I included this song on the playlist because, underneath my calloused exterior, I am a sentimental, romantic at heart.

Some say love’s complicated
Some say love wants too much
But when you find that someone
Too much is never enough
How much it means to me

Cause every joy my heart has ever dreamed of
Has come from loving you
And nothing that’s asked of me is too hard or too tough
No fire I wouldn’t run through for you

I’ll move heaven and earth
The moon in the sky
Cross mountains and rivers to be with you
Risk everything I possess for your happiness
The only thing that comes first
On heaven and earth

Some say I’m sentimental
That true love’s only a myth
But I, I say love is special
Cause I’m blessed to have you to share it with
And every day there’s no greater purpose
Than keeping you satisfied
And nothing you ask of me is too hard or too tough
No battle I would not fight
I’d give up my life

I’ll move heaven and earth
The moon in the sky
Cross mountains and rivers to be with you
Risk everything I possess for your happiness
The only thing that comes first
On heaven and earth

I’ll move heaven and earth
The moon in the sky
Cross mountains and rivers to be with you
Risk everything I possess for your happiness
The only thing that comes first
On heaven and earth

And how I feel is not temporary
It’ll last until the day that I die
A love this good is not ordinary
It comes only once in your life

I’ll move heaven and earth
The moon in the sky
Cross mountains and rivers to be with you
Risk everything I possess for your happiness
The only thing that comes first
On heaven and earth (x4)

Special Lyrics by Avant

Special is the 3rd track on my The Best R&B Ever playlist. I included this song because of the melody. And for some reason, it reminds me of the years that I spent on active duty.

If I could take away all the pain you ever been through
I’m hoping that I would be the one you would wanna run to
Cause there is no doubt in my mind that you’re the one for me
Now I got to get the whole world to see
How much it means to me

We didn’t get married (But it feels so special, Yes it feels so special)
This ain’t a baby (But it feels so special, Yes it feels so special)
Didn’t hit the lottery (But it feels so special, Yes it feels so special)
That’s what you mean to me (Cause you are so special, Yes you are so special)

You’re like a diamond in a cave that’s never been seen
And you’re the most beautiful place I go to when I dream (When I dream)
And if the world turned on you I would be there to pull you through
Cause can’t nobody ever take your place (Yeaaah)

We didn’t get married (But it feels so special, Yes it feels so special)
This ain’t a baby (But it feels so special, Yes it feels so special)
Didn’t hit the lottery (But it feels so special, Yes it feels so special)
That’s what you mean to me (Cause you are so special, Yes you are so special)

You’re all to me, the perfect sea and I can’t be without your love
Girl you take me there now I can reach the stars
There’s no doubt about it you got my heart now and I’m all yours
And I’m ready to be all that you asked for

We didn’t get married (But it feels so special, Yes it feels so special)
This ain’t a baby (But it feels so special, Yes it feels so special)
Didn’t hit the lottery (But it feels so special, Yes it feels so special)
That’s what you mean to me (Cause you are so special, Yes you are so special)

Have you ever loved someone so much
That you could feel it deep down in your soul?

Girls, I truly have

Well, this is how I feel about the one I love
Let’s sing it together
Always

Boy
I never knew a love like you before
You came into my life and gave me more
You are my friend
Also, my man
And I’ll love you always

You
You just don’t know
What you’ve done for me
You gave me love and now I’m complete

You are the sun (You are the sun)
The only one (The only one)
And I’ll love you always

Baby, don’t leave me
Don’t ever desert me
I’ll promise my life to you
And I’ll love you always (Love you always)

Baby, don’t leave me
Don’t ever desert me (Always)
I’ll promise my life to you
And I’ll love you always (I love you always)

I
Wish I had known that you’d come for me
I was a soul that was lost and incomplete
You are my friend (You are my friend)
And now you’re my man (My man)
And I want you always

I
I just don’t know what came over me (Over me, boy)
You touched my soul and let me feel free

Always be there
And baby, don’t be scared
Cause I’ll love ya always
Baby, always

Baby, don’t leave me
Don’t ever desert me
I promise my life to you
And I love you always (Love you always)

Baby, don’t leave me
Don’t ever desert me
I promise my life to you
And I love you always

My friend
You’re my man
I do, I do, I do
I do love you

You, you should know now that I’d never leave you
When I’ve searched the land and now I’ve found you

(You are my girl) You are my man
(I am you man) My only man
And I’ll love you always
Always

Baby, don’t leave me
Don’t ever desert me
I promise my love to you
And I love you always (Love you always)

Baby, don’t leave me
Don’t ever desert me
I promise my love to you
And I love you always

Baby, don’t leave me
Don’t ever desert me
I promise my love to you
And I love you always (Love you always)

Baby, don’t leave me
Don’t ever desert me
I promise my love to you
And I love you always

Baby, don’t ever leave
Don’t ever leave me, please
I promise unselfishly
To love you always

Baby, don’t ever go
Don’t ever leave me, no
All the things that we’ve been through
Still love you

Baby, don’t you ever go
Don’t you ever go
Never leave you, no
