Brownstone - 5 Miles To Empty Lyrics




Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh yeah, oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Oh baby
Can we sit down and talk for a minute
You know that we've got a few things
We need to work out, oh yeah
You can, spare me all your sorry details
Had enough of all your lies
And my silence cries

Hurry, hurry, quick, quick
I need a man who's gonna do me right
Hurry, hurry, quick, quick
Somebody who will surely satisfy
When I think of your love
It only makes me stop and wonder
Truly why, oh why
Oh, Why would you make me cry, oh baby

5 miles to empty
My heart is running low, whoa
I need a good man to fill me up
I need a good man to give me love, babe
5 miles to empty
My heart is running low, whoa
I need a good man to fill me up
I need a good man to give me love

We spend so much time
We're always fighting desperately trying for love
We know won't last much longer, no, no, but baby
Such a waste of time when we're praying though
Some are saying that we won't last much longer than a day
No, no, no, no, no

Hurry, hurry, quick, quick
I need a man who's gonna do me right
Hurry, hurry, quick, quick
Somebody who is gonna satisfy my needs, yeah
When I think of your love
It only makes me stop and wonder
Truly why, oh why
Oh, why would you make me cry, oh baby

5 miles to empty
My heart is running low, whoa
I need a good man to fill me up
I need a good man to give me love, babe
5 miles to empty
My heart is running low, whoa
I need a good man to fill me up
I need a good man to give me love

5 miles to a empty
My heart is running low

5 miles to empty
My heart is running low

Hurry, hurry, quick, quick
Oh, I need a man who will promise to always do right
Hurry, hurry, quick, quick
Oh, looking for someone who's gonna satisfy
When I think of your love
It only makes me stop and wonder
Truly why, oh why
Why would you make me cry, oh baby

5 miles to empty
My heart is running low, whoa
I need a good man to fill me up
I need a good man to give me love, babe
5 miles to empty
My heart is running low, whoa
I need a good man to fill me up
I need a good man to give me love

Five miles to empty [fade away]

Brownstone 5 Miles To Empty Comments
  1. Imani Walker

    Why isn’t this on Apple Music ? Or am I trippin

  2. TheRawGlow

    If you sit back and think. Alot of these RNB artists from the 90s was craving and yearning for a man to love them due to a gap that was lacking self love. You can't love nobody if you don't love yourself and the chorus of this song is a prime example . Besides the only artist that I know of that came to surface and admitted she didn't love herself at the time and was still working on herself was Mary J Blige

  3. marvin alston

    Soul music.

  4. Brian Hines

    Another great R&B song from the 90's. I don't want to go back in time, because the World has to move forward, but thank God for YouTube to recapture all these memories.

  5. Teddy Jam

    I remember when Whur the radio station in DC used brownstone as one of their promos. Good times.

  6. Kittyred

    I miss this group. Those vocals 🙌🙌💖

  7. Arika Pickett

  8. Peace, Love and WOAH!

    Idk why but I can hear Michelle Williams singing this, it seems like the type of song she could get down on.

  9. Maiden Watkins

    Maxee was one of my fave singers. I couldn't listen to them after she died, hurt me do much. RIP💖

  10. The P

    I can remember being a kid in the 90's sitting in the living room during the summer watching Videos on BET and MTV. This was one of my favorite songs from Brownstone..... man I miss good music like this. I miss the experience that it created, just for those few minutes. Music doesn't do that anymore. Especially R&B......
