Jennifer Hudson – Spotlight

Orginal video here.

Jennifer Hudson always entertain me. Her choice of songs, her expressions in her voice and the lyrics she sings are totally brilliant. Just a look at the title and I wouldn’t have guessed the song is about a rocky relationship. Anyway, do check out her video (link on top). It’s as good as you think.

Personally, I can really feel this song. I can’t forget how it feels like to hear those words (like this lyrics) said right back to me. I guess it’s true that I did to much. Yet if I did too little, it might have the same outcome. I guess that’s just how it is sometimes. Enough using the spotlight. It’s time for a little candlelight instead.

Well, I don’t like
Living under your spotlight
Just because you think
I might find somebody worthy

Oh, I don’t like
Living under your spotlight
Baby, if you treat me right
You won’t have to worry

Are you a man who loves
And cherishes
And cares for me?
Is that you? Is that you?
Is that you? yeah…
Are you a guard in a prison
Maximum security?
Is that you? Is that you?
Is that you? yea eh…
Do we stay home all the time
Cuz you want me to yourself?
Is that you? Is that you?
Is that you? yeah…
Or am I locked away
Out of fear that i’d find
Someone else
Is that you? Is that you?
yea eh…

Chorus:
Well, I don’t like
Living under your spotlight
Just because you think
I might find somebody worthy
Oh, I don’t like
Living under your spotlight
Baby, if you treat me right
You won’t have to worry

is this a relationship
Fulfilling your needs
As well as mine
Is that you? Is that you?
Is that you? yeah…
Or is this just my sentence
Am I doing time?
Is that you? Is that you?
Is that you? yeah…
If this is love
Real, real love
Then I’m staying no doubt
Is that you? Is that you?
Is that you? yeah…
But if I’m just a prisoner
Then I’m busting out
Is that you? Is that you?
yeah…

(Chorus)

Oh, you oughta be
Ashamed of yourself
What the hell
Do you think you’re doing?
Loving me, loving me
So wrong
Baby, all I do is try
To show you
That you’re my
One and only guy
No matter
Who may come along
Open your eyes
Cuz baby, I don’t lie

(Chorus 2x)
