Melanie C - This Time Lyrics

I've been practicing all day
Now the words I meant to say are gone
I promised that I wouldn't cry
Told myself I had to try and hold on
The truth, I lied
I hate myself inside
And why
I played the game and paid the price
I never look back
I never cry never try to wonder why
I'll be on my own
And never doubt, never shout or wonder how
I'll never be lonely until
This time, this time, this time
This time I will
I've been wide awake all night
There's no sign of sleep inside my mind
The headlight shadows scan my wall
I convince myself you'll call in time
The truth, I lied
The girl in me has died
And why
I played the game and paid the price
I never look back...
This time I will be yours completely
This time I'll make sure you don't hate me
This time I know, this time I can and this time I will
I never look back...
I've been practicing all day
Now the words I meant to say are gone.

    Amo a mel c de verdad es una artista en toda la, expresión de la palabra debería de haber más artistas así q fueran el boom en la música y trasciendan tristemente han dado oportunidades a muchos artistas q salen al vapor sin nada q ofrecer y sólo sacar un hit del momento en nosotros esta en valorar a artistas como mel c pero bueno la vida no es presisamente justa siempre pero bueno mel ah hecho una carrera y ah sido muy reconocida a pesar de todo empezando de el fenómeno con el q empezó mis amadas spice girls bien por mel y te seguiré hasta, el fin gracias por existir tienes un ángel y una energía bellísima y gracias por regalarnos tu música y talento

    She's the reason why Spice Girls were popular


    mmm...the spice girls were/are popular coz they were a phenomenon, In my opinion MelanieC was the peace most important in vocal and musical terms. we can't tell that she's in the only one coz they were five pieces and we needed all of them to live and love their music.


    Vocally, yes, she was definitely ‘the voice’ of the group along with Emma. But back in the day, I remember Emma & Geri were the ultimate favorites. Like almost all people have them as their most favorite Spices. But now Victoria is the most popular. Her cult following is insane. On instagram alone, her followers are much more than all the other 4 Spices combined!


    @Agent Victoria is popular because she loves the marketing and PR things!! Melanie isn´t, she is not the kind of person who´s matter the followers on IG, that not means that she has all the respect that in a lot of cases, Victoria didn´t or doesn´t. That´s the reason why I respect more Melanie than Victoria, Melanie is more genuine and has a possitive vibe all the time.

    Claudice Falcao

    @Agent Mel C is the most popular and the talented with no doubt

  17. s kanamaru

    if powerfull with voice and sound, it can be a good song

  18. Agung Ettexx


  19. Emma Johnson

    As pretty as the moon in the sky!

  20. Daniela Fernandes

    This song makes me feel positive 🍃

  21. Danilo Pignataro

    She is a great singer and I love her so much. I bought all her seven albums

  22. Tarinia Doomarenn

    This is one of her best songs out all, and all the others are beautiful.

  23. Dorian Sol

    una de sus mejores canciones. pero todas son geniales

  24. Pasquale

    Melanie Rocks........she is a honest person....and very funny....that makes her very to a explosive Sexy bombshell

  25. Monico Hernandez III

    All her music rocks!!! I loved it since her departure from the group. Still listen to all her music.

  26. xxxTIN0xxx

    The music industry sucks so bad for giving opportunities to only bland pop stars made of image and null depth instead of talented lyricist and singers such as Melanie C.

    Dabs 4 Jesus

    this is true I live in the usa we don't hear good music like this

    Mckayla Collins

    xxxTIN0xxx I know right! Now most of the music industry is all about drugs and sex. It practically disregards songs with meaningful lyrics. Like this one. The music industry burys good singers and good song with meaningful music with other (dare I call) singers who have stupid lyrics and use a lot of autotune.


    sadly and unfair.


    I know. All of her music that I have heard have told a story or have a point. Ziggy, that other one who made 'anaconda' don't care to remember her name, even taylor swift etc. They just say stuff into a mic that sounds cool... but you can't follow it to a story or point. Especially the first two.

  27. Shelley Turner

    She is awesome!

  28. Erica Fofa

    😘😘😘😘😘 awm amo esta musica

  29. ines jesus

    I like this song

  30. Masashi Records

    Why only 175K views for this epic song? The music system sometimes is really strange. Whatta fuck!

    Rionette R

    You'll be happy to know that it's over 200k now:)

    But you are right, great musicians are sometimes so unfairly underrated:(

  44. Judy Ann Rocabo

    mel c is simply amazing!!! incomparable and very versatile, she can sing ballads, pop, rock... name it!!! and her voice is sooo distinct!!! i'm just quite sad that her records are not available here in the philippines where a lot of her fans could have copies of them... i had to order my copies online ... quite expensive but very much worth it!!! she's been my favorite spice girl and still is my favorite after she went solo. mel c rocks!!!

  45. Tomás Alcorta

    Thumbs up if you're listening to it in 2012!!

  46. Fede Rico

    she is so amazeing. my favorite singer. I so bady wish she would do a tour in the US. I want to see her live. Or even in the lower part of Canada. But I would need like a years notice to save up enough money for that. her voice is unmatched.


    its time for a new album!

  74. Andre Brito

    absolutely fantastic, she´s the most talentous singer that i know. She´s deserve more atention and credibility!

  75. Luna Nunes

    Divine and sad at the same time.

  76. Nihal Jackson

    The intro sucks though, because I can't stand the over-compressed piano used.

    2:17 - my favourite part of the song! Wow Melanie, ur so damn amazing at writing melodies! Ur the best since Natasha Hamilton.

  78. MikeCastillo

    love so much!
