Stop
Lizz Wright Lyrics


Don´t tell me to stop
Tell the rain not to drop
Tell the wind not to blow
'Cause he said so

Tell me love isn´t true
It´s just something we do
Tell me everything I´m not
Don´t tell me to stop
Tell the sun not to shine
Not to get up this time
Let it fall by the way
Leave me where I lay

Tell the leaves not to turn
Don´t tell me I´ll learn
Take the black off a crow
But don´t tell me go

Tell the bed not to lay
Like the mouth of a grave
Not to stare up at me
Like a calf on its knees

Tell me love isn´t true
It´s just something we do
Tell me everything I´m not
But don´t tell me to stop
Tell me everything I´m not
Don´t tell me to stop

Joe Henry is married to Madonna's sister -- that's the connection. Haven't heard Madonna sing it but I love Lizz's version. She has a lovely voice and interprets songs in an original way.

Jamie Jamal

Such a beautiful version!

Josephine Winter

Classic song, this version with her voice is perfect

La voz más maravillosa del mundo no pares no

Her voice is something unreal. Wish to go one time to hear her live. Maybe If she will be in Europe at least somewhere in Germany or France... I don't even dream her to come to Ukraine, but would be miracle if come true...

any distance to travel for her is worth while ... she's a revelation --- first time I saw her live she brought tears in my eyes within a few seconds once she started singing... her presence is (as you say) somehow unreal

Stop: my intro to Lizz on Canadian radio a few years ago. I raced to the music shop (a really large one) where they had to order this CD, and I waited. It took a while. I hope Lizz has better presence there now... Amazing voice. She connects with all her listeners. Someone wrote this about her, that it was as if Lizz was singing to her during a performance in a small venue. I know what she means, just from listening here!
