Whitney Houston

Whitney Elizabeth Houston (August 9, 1963 – February 11, 2012) was an American recording artist, actress, producer, and model. In 2009, the Guinness World Records cited her as the most awarded female act of all time. Houston was one of the world's best-selling music artists, having sold over 170 million albums, singles and videos worldwide. She released six studio albums, one holiday album and three movie soundtrack albums, all of which have diamond, multi-platinum, platinum or gold certification. Houston's crossover appeal on the popular music charts, as well as her prominence on MTV, starting with her video for "How Will I Know", influenced several African American female artists to follow in her footsteps. more »

Hey yeah baby hoo boy 
yeah oh baby 
I hope you realize baby 
Just what you mean to me (uh) 
Hey you where I run for cover 
Your love is shelter for me 
And when I find myself needing 
Some lifting up 
One night with you and 
That always is enough 
How you make being in love 
A true rare affair 
So take me I'm your prisoner 

Will you sentence me 
To be your lover for life 
Your lover for life 
Will you sentence me 
I want to be your lover for life 
Your lover for life 
Your lover yeah yeah yeah 
I just want to hear you say 
You'll be my lover, lover for life 
Capture, there's no getaway 
You're my lover, my lover for life 

Under your spell or 
Under my own power 
It really doesn't matter to me 
No boy 
See I fell in love 
The first time I saw you 
And have been falling in love 
Ever since mm boy 

You heard my testimony 
You've seen my evidence 
Hey, it's a crime of passion 
In every sense 
And justice would be served 
If you stay here in my world 
So take me I'm your prisoner 


I'm your prisoner 
Take me 
I'm your prisoner 
And sentence me to be 
Your lover for life 
want to be 
Take me baby 
Your lover, your baby
