intro (back to basics)

a very pleasant good evening ladies and gentlemen

christina aguilera
that’s how music should sound

ohh yeah
i’ve waited for some time
to get inside the minds
of every legend i’ve ever wanted to stand beside
it’s like an endless ride
feeling the lows and highs
of every lyric and melody
every single rhyme
so here i stand today
in tribute i do pay
to those before me who laid it down and paved the way
and so to god i pray that he will give me strength
to carry forward the gift of song in his good faith
in his good faith…

i’m going back to basics
to where it all began
i’m ready now to face it
i wanna understand
what made the soul singers
and the blues figures
that inspired a higher generation
the jazz makers, and the ground breakers
they gave so much of themselves and dedication

to those before me who laid it down and paved the way

understand

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

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.

oh mother

she was so young with such innocent eyes
she always dreamt of a fairytale life
and all the things that your money can’t buy
she thought that he was a wonderful guy
then suddenly, things seemed to change
it was the moment she took on his name
he took his anger out on her face
she kept all of her pain locked away

oh mother, we’re stronger
from all of the tears you have shed
oh mother, don’t look back
cause he’ll never hurt us again

so mother, i thank you
for all that you’ve done and still do
you got me, i got you
together we always pull through
we always pull through
we always pull through
oh mother, oh mother, oh mother

it was the day that he turned on his kids
that she knew she just had to leave him
so many voices inside of her head
saying over and over and over,
“you deserve much more than this.”

she was so sick of believing the lies and trying to hide
covering the cuts and bruises (cuts and bruises)
so tired of defending her life, she could have died
fighting for the lives of her children

oh mother, we’re stronger
from all of the tears you have shed (all of the tears you have shed)
oh mother, don’t look back
cause he’ll never hurt us again (he’ll never hurt us again)

so mother, i thank you (thank you)
for all that you’ve done and still do (still do)
you got me, i got you, (yeah you got me and i got you)
together we always pull through.
we always pull through

oh mother, oh mother, oh mother

all of your life you have spent
burying hurt and regret
but mama, he’ll never touch us again

for everytime he tried to break you down
just remember who’s still around
it’s over, and we’re stronger
and we’ll never have to go back again

oh mother, we’re stronger
from all of the tears you have shed
oh mother, don’t look back (oh mother don’t look back again)

without you

have i been blind?
for the first time in my life i feel i’ve opened up my eyes
since you’ve arrived like an angel from the sky
i’m on a spiritual high

so don’t you ever go away
i could never face
losing you would kill my faith
in a higher place

what kind of world
would it be without you
i couldn’t breathe without you here
what kind of world
would i see without you
i can’t dream without you here

yeah woah yeah

beautiful boy
how on earth did i do something worth deserving you?
my better half
how i cherish through and through every part of you
i do

loving you’s made me whole
now i belong

(oh without you)
i couldn’t breathe without you here
(ohh here)
what kind of world
(what kind of world)
would i see without you
(oh see without you)
i can’t dream without you here
(dream without you here)

still dirrty

if you see me walking down the street
or in the pages of your magazine
looking just a little differently
showing off a softer side of me

they saying i’m looking like a lady
they say that love has gone and changed me
but don’t be fooled by everything you see
gotta let the naughty in me free

there’s a woman inside of all of us
who never quite seems to get enough
trying to play by the rules is rough
cause sooner or later something’s gonna erupt us

cause i still got that nasty in me
still got that dirrty degree (still got it)
and if you want some more sexy
still got that freak in me
i still got that nasty in me
still got that dirrty degree (oh yeah)
and if you want some more sexy
still got that freak in me

no matter what you thinking of me, still dirrty
and if you’re still rolling with me, still got it
no matter what you thinking of me, still dirrty
still got that freak in me

why is a woman’s sexuality
always under so much scrutiny?
why can’t she do exactly as she please
without being called a million things?

they say i’m not the girl they used to know (used to know)
’cause i don’t always wear revealing clothes (oh)
but don’t be fooled the moment i get home (i get home)
i’m letting loose, giving a private show (don’t you know)

there’s some women out there who talk and stare
who never seem to let down their hair
like to past judgment, but they’re just scared
and don’t know what they’re missing, so they better beware

’cause i still got that nasty in me
still got that dirrty degree (ooh)
and if you want some more sexy
still got that freak in me
i still got that nasty in me
still got that dirrty degree (oh yeah)
and if you want some more sexy
still got that freak in me (oh yeah)

no matter what you thinking of me, still dirrty
and if you’re still rolling with me, still got it
no matter what you thinking of me, still dirrty
still got that freak in me

don’t tell me to behave
’cause i’ll never play that game (no)
don’t tell me what to do
’cause i’ll never be uptight like you
don’t look at me that way
’cause i ain’t never gonna change
and if you’re talking about my life
you’re only wasting your own time

if i want to wear lingerie outside of my clothes
if i want to be erotic in my own videos
if i want to be provocative, well that ain’t a sin
maybe you’re not comfortable in your own skin

i still got that nasty in me
still got that dirrty degree (in me)
and if you still want some more sexy
still got that freak in me
i still got that nasty in me
still got that dirrty degree (in me)
and if you still want some more sexy
still got freak in me

ooh, yeah.
hey, hey, hey.
ohh. ohh. ohh. ohh.

here to stay

well everybody got an opinion now, don’t they?
but it ain’t no thing to me
it really don’t make any difference now to me
if you don’t like what you see
i pay no mind to the negative kind
cause it’s just no way to be
i don’t stop to please someone else’s needs
gonna live my life for me

i’m gonna keep on, gonna do my own thing
we all got a song that we’re meant to sing
and no matter what people say, or might think
i ain’t going no place, no i’m here to stay
gonna keep on doing my thing
cause whether they love or they’re hatin’ on me
i’ll still be the same girl i used to be
and i ain’t going no place, no i’m here to stay

i’m here to stay
whoa oh oh yeah (i’m here to stay)
whoa oh oh yeah (i’m here to stay)

i’ve never been the type to be shy
i know that some would say i’m too headstrong
but i’d rather be a woman who voices her mind
whether you think i’m right or wrong

and i know some people wanna criticize
makes them feel better about themselves
so say what you will
time will reveal
in the end that i will be here still

i’m gonna keep on i’m a do my own thing
we all got a song that we’re meant to sing
and no matter what people say, or might think
i ain’t going no place, no i’m here to stay
gonna keep on doing my thing
cause whether they love or they’re hatin’ on me
i’ll still be the same girl i used to be
cause i ain’t going no place, no i’m here to stay

gotta get up
keep my head up
gonna keep on turnin it up, never let up
if i keep steppin it up, i’m  a prove that
i ain’t never gonna be stopped, like it or not
gotta get up
keep my head up
gonna keep on turnin it up, never let up
if i keep steppin it up, i’m a prove that i ain’t never gonna be stopped, like it or not

woah woah woah

no matter the pressures that face me
i believe, i believe that we’ll see
i’ll never let anyone break me
all your doubt can do now is strengthen me

and life, it ain’t always that easy
gotta fight to see past the boundaries
crossin’ the lines i will define
every time
that forever is mine

i’m gonna keep on, i’m a do my own thing
we all got a song that we’re meant to sing
and no matter what people say, or might think
i ain’t going no place, no i’m here to stay
gonna keep on doing my thing
cause whether they love or they’re hatin’ on me
i’ll still be the same girl i used to be
cause i ain’t going no place, no i’m here to stay

cause whether they love or they’re hatin’ on me
i’ll still be the same girl i used to be
coz i aint going no place, no i’m here to stay

thank you (dedication to fans)

it seems like a lifetime
since i felt like a prisoner of my dreams, yeah
it took such a long time
for me to realize just how to be
and to listen to me

don’t go thinking i’m not thankful,
’cause me, i’ve got my hands full of good things, oh
and i hope i can give back
a little bit of what you’ve given me

so thank you for standing right by me (i will always love you)
so thank you for being behind me (you are just so amazing)
and watching me grow and letting others know
that you still believe in what i’ll be

ha.

some people have said things in times
about me that weren’t always true
ooh yeah
but you’ve always been there
to give that extra love to pull me through
to do what i gotta do

cause there’ll always be those ups and downs
but you’ve always seemed to stick around and see
see me through to believe, yeah

and i hope i can give back
a little bit of what you’ve given me
you give me all that i need, yeah

so thank you for standing right by me (i thank you for everything)
so thank you for being behind me (thank you, christina)
and watching me grow and letting others know
that you still believe in what i’ll be (sing it, girl)

it took awhile ’til i could do what i wanted
and now i’m so happy that it started where we started
i’m thanking god that i could be in the position
to do my own thing now and make my own decisions

and so i’m thanking you for being true
and standing by me through and through

enter the circus

ladies and gentlemen
boys and girls
step right up, step right up
come closer, you won’t believe your eyes
behind this curtain,
witness something you’ve never seen before,
heard before, dreamt before
the most amazing show on earth

la la la la la la la
it’s the most amazing show on earth
la la la la la la la

do you want to be widely entertained?
people to know your name?
do you crave fame?
well they say “things aren’t always what they seem to be”
even your greatest fantasies
you won’t believe your eyes
won’t even recognise
the wonderment that lies
behind the shimmer and the lights

is it true what they say?
is it all just fun and games?
or is there more behind the makeup,
and the faces full of paint?

i ask you, do you want to come and play?
hahahaha
get the world to come and play
hahahaha

so sit back, relax, fasten your seatbelts
it’s going to be a bumpy ride to the other side

welcome

welcome to the greatest show
greatest show on earth
you’ve never seen before
here the fairytale unfolds

what’s behind the smoke and glass?
painted faces, everybody wears a mask
are you selling them your soul?
well you’ll be left out in the cold

is it all blue skies
fun and games untill you fall
then you’re left without anyone at all
you’re riding on a shooting star
with a smile upon your face
but soon the shine fades

and you’re left out all alone
wondering where did they all go?
oooh

been jaded, hated,
who’ll be around when the limelight’s faded?
been shut down, pushed out
made to smile when i wanted to frown

always taking a bow
always working the crowd
always breaking new ground
always playing the clown
who’ll be sticking it out?
who’ll be staying around
when the lights go down?

something you just can’t ignore
and yeah, it sure is likely, baby

take you out of your skin

well i’m trouble, trouble, trouble, baby
always knocking at my door
yes i’m a whole lot of lot of trouble, baby

hurt

seems like it was yesterday when i saw your face
you told me how proud you were but i walked away
if only i knew what i know today
ooh ooh

i would hold you in my arms
i would take the pain away
thank you for all you’ve done
forgive all your mistakes.

there’s nothing i wouldn’t do
to hear your voice again.
sometimes i wanna call you but i know you won’t be there

oh, i’m sorry for blaming you for everything i just couldn’t do
and i’ve hurt myself by hurting you

some days i feel broke inside but i won’t admit
sometimes i just wanna hide ’cause it’s you i miss
and it’s so hard to say goodbye when it comes to this, ooh, whoa

would you tell me i was wrong?
would you help me understand?
are you looking down upon me?
are you proud of who i am?

there’s nothing i wouldn’t do
to have just one more chance
to look into your eyes and see you looking back

oh, i’m sorry for blaming you for everything i just couldn’t do
and i’ve hurt myself, oh, oh, oh.

if i had just one more day
i would tell you how much that i’ve missed you since you’ve been away

oh, it’s dangerous
it’s so out of line
to try and turn back time

i’m sorry for blaming you for everything i just couldn’t do
and i’ve hurt myself by hurting you

mercy on me

lord have mercy on my soul
for i have walked the sinful road
that i’m down on my knees
lord have mercy on me, please

ohh yeah

jesus, i must confess
that in all my loneliness
i’ve forsaken and i’ve sinned
leaving fragments of a man so broken

i could tell you what i’ve done
or should i tell you where i went wrong?

well the more that i start to play
my deceitful, evil ways
keep on growing stronger by the day

oh lord have mercy on my soul
for i have walked a sinful road
so i’m gonna get down on my knees
beg forgiveness to help set me free
lord have mercy on me, please

mother mary full of grace
in my weakness, i’ve lost faith
i’ve been careless, and i have been warned
and the devil inside me is torn
god bless the men that i have scorned

oh lord have mercy on my soul
for i have walked the sinful road
so i’m gonna get down on my knees
beg forgiveness to help set me free
lord have mercy on me, please

woah, woaa yeah yeah
woa yeah yeah oh oh
oh-oh yeah yeah yeah, ohh

so don’t let me fool around no more
send your angels down to guide me through that door
well i’ve gone and confessed my regrets
and i pray i’m not held in contempt
i’m so lost, and i need you to help me repent

oh lord have mercy on my soul
oh i’m begging, i’m pleeding, i’m needing
i want you to know
so i’m down upon my knees
oh lord, i need forgiveness
i need forgiveness from you

save me from myself

it’s not so easy loving me
it gets so complicated
all the things you’ve gotta be
everything’s changin
but you’re the truth
i’m amazed by all your patience
everything i put you through

when i’m about to fall
somehow you’re always waitin
with your open arms to catch me
you’re gonna save me from myself
from myself, yes
you’re gonna save me from myself

my love is tainted by your touch
cuz some guys have shown me aces
but you’ve got that royal flush
i know it’s crazy everyday
well tomorrow may be shaky
but you never turn away

don’t ask me why i’m cryin
cuz when i start to crumble
you know how to keep me smilin
you always save me from myself
from myself, myself
you’re gonna save me from myself

i know it’s hard, it’s hard
but you’ve broken all my walls
you’ve been my strength, so strong

and don’t ask me why i love you
it’s obvious your tenderness
is what i need to make me
a better woman to myself
to myself, myself
you’re gonna save me from myself

the right man

so many years have gone by
always strong, tried not to cry
never felt like i needed any man
to comfort me in life
but i’m all made up today
a veil upon my face
but no father stands beside me
to give his bride away

well i’m standing in the chapel
wearing my white dress
i have waited for this moment
with tears of happiness
here i leave behind my past
by taking the chance
i’ve finally found the right man

thoughts racing fast through my mind
as i’m gazing down the aisle
that my future will mend the memories
torn between father and child

my emotions overload
’cause there is no hand to hold
there’s no shoulder here to lean on
i’m walking all on my own

here i go

now i’m standing at four corners
to have and to hold
now my love, you stand beside me
to walk life’s winding road
and i owe it all to you
for taking the chance
you’ve shown me there’s a right man
’cause i never knew a right man

well i’m standing in the chapel
ready to confess
that i’ve waited for this moment
with tears of happiness
now i leave behind my past
by taking the chance

ohh

well i’m standing at four corners
to have and to hold
now my love, you stand beside me
to walk life’s winding road
and i owe it all to you
for taking the chance

and one day my little girl
will reach out her hand
she’ll know i found the right man
