About Sittin' Up in My Room

"Sittin' Up in My Room" is a song by American recording artist Brandy Norwood. It was written and produced by Babyface and recorded by Norwood for the soundtrack of the 1995 film Waiting to Exhale, starring Whitney Houston and Angela Bassett. The track was one out of five singles the album spawned and reached number two on the US Billboard Hot 100, becoming Norwood's most successful single on that particular chart up to that point. It is of note that the characteristic bass intro is a replica of the famous riff performed by bassist Larry Graham, of Sly and the Family Stone, on their hit "Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)", and its remix featuring LL Cool J contains a sample of "Haven't You Heard" by Patrice Rushen. "Sittin' Up in My Room" was performed on several television and award show ceremonies, such as Late Show with David Letterman, the 23rd Annual American Music Awards, the 1996 Soul Train Awards, the 39th Annual Grammy Awards, and the 2015 Soul Train Music Awards. A music video was also filmed, depicting Brandy keeping herself penned up in a retro, brightly colored room after her friend tells her that her love interest is joining the party downstairs. Actor Donald Faison appears as her love interest in the video, directed by Hype Williams. It won the award for Best Song from a Movie and was nominated for Best Video from a Film at the 1996 MTV Awards. The song has since been performed on several awards shows and Norwood's concerts and tours, including the 1998 Never Say Never World Tour and the 2016 Slayana World Tour.

Seems like ever since
The first day we met
There is no one else I think of more than you
I can't seem to forget
Can't get you out my head
'Cause the verdicts in
I'm crazy over you
How can one be down?
Tell me where to start
'Cause every time you smile
I feel tremors in my heart
I have but one concern
How can I get with you?
'Til my day comes here's what I'm gon' do

Be sitting up in my room
Back here thinking 'bout you
I must confess I'm a mess for you
Be sitting up in my room
Back here thinking 'bout you
I'm just a mess with a thing for you

Pray that you'll invest
In my happiness
All it takes is just one simple call from you
Turn my heart around
If I'm making ground
Pretty baby please tell me if I'm getting through
Tell me what is up
You see I need to know
Tell me if I'm far or if I'm getting close
I have but one concern
And one concern is you
'Til I'm with you here's what I'm gon' do

Be sitting up in my room
Back here thinking 'bout you
I must confess I'm a mess for you
Be sitting up in my room
Back here thinking 'bout you
I'm just a mess with a thing for you

Ooh whoa, oh yeah, oh yeah
Hmm, oh, oh, oh

How can one be down?
Tell me where to start
'Cause every time you smile
I feel tremors in my heart
I have but one concern
How can I get with you?
'Til my day comes here's what I'm gonna do

Be sitting up in my room
Back here thinking 'bout you
I must confess I'm a mess for you
Be sitting up in my room
Back here thinking 'bout you
I'm just a mess with a thing for you

Be sitting up in my room
Back here thinking 'bout you
I must confess I'm a mess for you
Be sitting up in my room
Back here thinking 'bout you
I'm just a mess with a thing for you

Be sitting up in my room
Back here thinking 'bout you
I must confess I'm a mess for you
Be sitting up in my room
Back here thinking 'bout you
I'm just a mess with a thing for you

Be sitting up in my room
Back here thinking 'bout you
I must confess I'm a mess for you
Be sitting up in my room
Back here thinking 'bout you
I'm just a mess with a thing for you

Be sitting up in my room
Back here thinking 'bout you
I must confess I'm a mess for you
Be sitting up in my room

Brandy

Brandy (from brandywine, derived from Dutch brandewijn—"burnt wine") is a spirit produced by distilling wine. Brandy generally contains 35–60% alcohol by volume (70–120 US proof) and is typically taken as an after-dinner drink. Some brandies are aged in wooden casks, while some are simply coloured with caramel colouring to imitate the effect of such aging (and some brandies are produced using a combination of both aging and colouring). more »
