The Real Thing
Lisa Stansfield Lyrics


Never mind the stars in the sky
Never mind the when and the why
Got a feeling higher than high
This is the real thing
This is the real thing

No more living in shame
And I'm not gonna run or gonna hide away
No more telling all those lies
It's been too long

No more living in chains
No, I don't give a damn what the people say
There's no use holding back desire
We've burnt our fingers now lets jump into the flames

Never mind the stars in the sky
Never mind the when and the why
Got a feeling higher than high
This is the real thing
Never mind the rain and the storm
We'll keep each other warm
We got something stronger than strong
This is the real thing

Gonna walk out hand in hand
So let them criticise 'cos they don't understand
We've got nothing to hide
It's just love

I've had enough of shy
So let's go out and show them what we have inside
There's no use holding back desire
We've burnt our fingers now let's jump into tho fire

Never mind the stars in the sky
Never mind the when and the why
Got a feeling higher than high
This is the real thing
Never mind the rain and the storm
We'll keep each other warm
We got something stronger than strong
This is the real thing

(Never mind the stars in the sky) Never mind them baby
(Never mind the when and the why) Never mind, never mind
(Never mind the stars in the sky) Oh hoo baby
'Cause I've got a feeling that's higher than high

Oh, what you do to me, baby
Oh, what you do to me, baby

This is the real thing

Never mind the stars in the sky
Never mind the when and the why
Got a feeling higher than high
This is the real thing
Never mind the rain and the storm
We'll keep each other warm
We got something stronger than strong
This is the real thing

(Never mind the stars in the sky)
(Never mind the when and the why) What you do, what yo do
(Never mind the stars in the sky) Keep doing it, doing it
'Cause I've got a feeling that's higher than high

Never mind the stars in the sky
Never mind the when and the why
Got a feeling higher than high
Never mind what people may say
They can't take this away
Let them try, I say hey
This is the real thing

The only white woman that sang with Barry White!!!!The only one that could really sing soul music (his words)!!!

Daniel López

@Dan B he used third person when talking about his albums and first person when it was about his life.

Phil Pleines

That's racist.

eddiecat

And Christina Aguilera.

JJ -One

Taylor Dayne too!

@No Limitz Teena Marie's voice isn't sultry enough for Soul music, although the black american community loves her, due to her long relationship with Rick James...she has some funky tunes though...

Lisa Stansfield was just as soulful as legendary Teena Marie..excellent music

conrad martin

This Robot guy is talking nonsense. To the average consumer they were both soulful outstanding singers. If you feel them emotionally, it is soulful.

@N7ST I didn't miss the point...you americans stick too much within box labels...regardless what box you put it in, this Lisa's cut is SOUL music...period.
I was mostly referring to voices...Lisa's voice as well as Dusty Springfield's voice (ivory Soul music pioneer) are SULTRY/DARK enough for Soul music...not Teena Marie's (although she has some soulful/funky tunes)...
Teena Marie is loved by the black american community mostly due to her connection/long relationship with Rick James, one of black american community's most beloved artists...period...
