BABYFACE @ SOUL TRAIN MUSIC AWARDS 1993 “NEVER KEEPING SECRETS”

Posted: January 28, 2011 by mega7981 in MEGA'S VHS COLLECTION

Another vid from my dusty VHS collection.

Here Babyface sings “NEVER KEEPING SECRETS” live off the FOR THE COOL IN YOU album and displays a beautiful performance which is far from todays raunchy “let me put it in you girl” type of R&B we hear today. No auto tune, no lip synching. A true gentleman pouring out poetic words of apology to a woman that he truly loves and wants back so they can spend the rest of their lives together. Another time machine classic of why the early 90’s were so dope back than. I mean don’t get me wrong I dig the current stuff, I”m far from a hater. Back than as a kid recording this on VHS I didn’t appreciate it as much as I do today aka I’m just getting old lol

IT”S ALL LOVE!!!

***THE PERFORMANCE WAS A SHORT VERSION, I GUESS BECUASE OF AIR TIME, BUT HERES THE FULL VERSION OF LYRICS…

I never meant to lie to you
But I needed me an easy way out
I couldn’t face the truth with you
Because I didn’t want to lose my clout
I always have been good to you
Girl I promise you that nothing has changed
Momentary insanity
Must be the reason why I did you that way

So now I’m telling everybody
That I know I was a fool
To take a chance of losing
And girl I can’t take losing you

So I’m
Never keeping secrets
And I’m never telling lies
I wanna make it up to you
No I’m
Never keeping secrets
Girl I swear it’s all behind
I only wanna be with you

I didn’t want to lie to you
But I didn’t want to let you down
It never did occur to me
Sooner or later that you would find out
You know how much I care for you
And I would never want to cause you pain
I know that there is no excuse
How could I ever treat my baby that way

That’s why I’m telling everybody
That I know I was a fool
But I don’t give a damn about it
‘Cause I wanna get back wit you

[HOOK]

If you wanna go
I want you to know
Girl that I understand it
But I don’t recommened it
‘Cause I love you more
I know you can’t ignore
That I will die for you
And lay down my life for you
Girl I wanna see
You standing next to me
Girl I apologize
For each and every lie
I want you to be
The only one for me
Forever and ever and ever and ever and ever

[HOOK]
