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 »

[Whitney](Deborah)
Oh, hey, Deb
(Hmm-hmm)
 Thank you for being woman enough to come
(Whitney, what's this about?)

I know he's leaving me for you
(Who said that, who told you?)
That is true
What is he telling you?
 Could it be the same things that he told me?
(He told me that he loved me)
I heard that
(He told me I was beautiful)
Uh-huh
(How did you know? How did you know?)
 Because I played the scene before

[Whitney]
This is a retake of my life
I was his star for many nights 
Now the roles have changed 
And you're the leading lady in his life
Lights, camera, now you're on
Just remember you've been warned  Enjoy it now cause it won't last
Same script, different cast

[Deborah](Whitney)
What you're saying could be true
But how can I take advice from you? 
(I'm not hating)
(But I wish the one before me would have warned me too babe)
Don't say no more, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
(Uncover your ears, girl)
I'm not listening, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
(But I know you hear me)
(Maybe my reasons are wrong)
(But I know that you believe me)

[Whitney]
This is a retake of my life
I was his star for many nights 
Now the roles have changed 
And you're the leading lady in his life
Lights, camera, now you're on
Just remember you've been warned  Enjoy it now cause it won't last
Same script, different cast

[Deborah](Whitney)
It's your fault you didn't love him enough 
(That's the problem, I loved him too much)
(And when you love him he becomes unattracted to you)
Oh no, he's changed and I'll prove you wrong 
(No, you won't)
So go away leave us the hell alone 
See, he loves me
(He'll hurt you)
He'll stay with me
(He'll leave you)
For sure, for sure, oh

[Whitney]
This is a retake of my life
I was his star for many nights 
Now the roles have changed 
Now, now, now, now, now, no, no
Now the roles have changed 
Have changed, and I'm the leading lady in his life.
Lights, camera, now you're on
Just remember you've been warned  Enjoy it now, because it won't last 
No, same script, different cast

[Deborah]
This is a retake of my life
You were his star for many nights 
But now the roles have changed 
I'm the leading lady in his life
Lights, camera, now you're on
Just remember you've been warned  Enjoy it now, cause this will last
I'm the future, you're his past

[Both]
This is a retake of my life
I was his star for many nights 
But now the roles have changed 
And you're the leading lady in his life
Lights, camera, now you're on
Just remember you've been warned  Enjoy it now
 Enjoy this now
It won't last
I know it will last
Same script, different cast, oh
