Baker, Anita - Mystery Lyrics

Turning back the hands of time
Holding on to misty memories
Chasing shadows throught the night
Trying to find my happy ending

Reaching out for another chance at heaven
We could still find a way if we try

Baby, believe in the myster
Like it used to be
We were more than lonely drifters in the dark
I can remember the sun inside
Love held us tight
I need to feel your magic in my heart
Instead of it tearing apart

Diamonds shining in the night
Lying soft and warm together
Only images survive
Can't my dreams go on forever

Oh there's still time to lock away your sadness
Let the secrets of love start to smile

Baby believe in the mystery
Like it used to be
Baby bring back all the passion to my heart
I can remember the tender days, all the love we made
Can't you see in me your magic here tonight

Lonely spirits seem to whisper in the wind
It's a silent song that's never meant to be
Since the dawn of time the mystery never ends
We could find forever if we let love rise again

Tell me shy can't we reach for another chance at heaven
We can still find the way if you try

Baby believe in the mystery
Like it used to be
Baby bring back all the passion to my heart
I can remember the tender days, all the love we made
I need to feel your magic here tonight

  5. liveyourlife1777

    This song touches my soul. It's like a summer night with the thunderstorm in the air. Or a summer night sitting by the water listening to the waves and watching the moon reflection on the water.

    What a enchantable song!!! So-so sweet and sensual ... a dream's maker!

  23. Jamell Robinson

    She is one of the best to do it. This generation now will never know real music. They think Beyonce is the best. Beyonce cant hold a candle next to Anita Baker voice and style

  24. Norlinar Shamsuddin

    Stellar performance!!! ❤️

    Rod Temperton Originally wrote this song for The Manhattan Transfer. Just Ms. Baker they did a Wonderful Job with it.

  39. vernooabra darby

    I haven’t heard since I was 5. Ignoring to play but from today’s crippling music this is magical.😘

  40. Lashanda Rogers

    It's a mystery....even I can't believe it.😄😍

  41. Justin Noble

    Manhattan Transfer version is better. Anita’s is good, but Janis’ version is more soulful and smoky — and she has 3 of the best backup singers to layer silky harmonies.

  42. LaRue Jones

    Ainta Baker the songstress❤

  43. MrBmic

    It's almost criminal for any person to sound this damn good. This NEVER gets old!!! Singers Of Today, Take notes!!

  57. preston white

  60. Puff N Stuff

    I love me some Anita Baker.

  61. Indira Arnold

    Love these songs

  62. d .byn

    Sarah Vaughn and Anita sound similar i love them both!

    Jerome Smith

    Sarah Vaughan was Queen Anita's idol when she was growing up as a teenager. She studied her and and singing style. Both ladies sing contralto, so it was a natural affection of Anita for her.

  63. Helena Royale

    Bumping in 2019

    joe santo

    great minds

  64. Jerome Smith

    Anita just absolutely nailed this cover. Simply a brilliant vocal masterpiece! So smooth and soulful! Also, the best bass intro in a song I have ever heard!!!

    Anita! Living Legend####

    "The Songstress"
    Queen of Smooth Jazz
    Queen of Quiet Storm

  65. Cynthia VanVoorhis

    I have loved Anita baker for many years have seen her twice in concert. Saw her farewell tour summer of 2018. It just never gets old. Her music will go on forever. The voice of an angel.

  66. Darryl Martin

    So many good memories from this song , i miss the good ol days 😭

  67. Puff N Stuff

    NO WORDS.........🐐

  68. Christopher Cotton

    Her label at the time (Elektra Entertainment) should have gone on and released this as a single back in 1986. I guarantee you that this song would have been a top 10 hit if not an across the board number 1 on both the hot 100 and R&B/Black singles charts.

  69. Richard Marshall Bowman

    Anita Baker at the height of her amazing powers.

    Richard Marshall Bowman

    This woman has got PIPES!   And her voice is oh so sultry.   This is one of my favorite songs.   Period!

  70. Que Unlimited

    That Bass...That Bass...THAT BASS!!!

  71. Livelive

    I knew I'd fine all they Ladies here, glad I stopped by.

  72. Lola Deon

    her voice is Memorizing 90s bby

  73. Monsterdrumma

    No one is mentioning this killer bass line?! Who the hell is playing the bass on this track, anyone?

    Jerome Smith

    Other than Queen Anita's magnificent vocals, that bass is killer!!


    I have the "Rapture" album and the liner notes have David B. Washington as bass player on this track, as well as on "Watch Your Step" and "Caught Up In The Rapture". There were some great bass players on this album.

  74. Ernesto Bardwell
