Randy Crawford - I've Never Been To Me Lyrics

Hey lady, you lady, cursing at your life
You're a discontented mother and a regimented wife
I've no doubt you dream about the things you'll never do
But I wish someone ever talked to me like I wanna talk to you

I've been to Georgia and California and anywhere I could run
I took the hand of a preacher man and we made love in the sun
But I ran out of places and friendly faces because I had to be free
Though I've been to paradise but I've never been to me

Please lady, please lady, don't just walk away
'Cos I have this need to tell you why I'm all alone today
I can see so much of me still living in your eyes
Want to share a part of a weary heart that has lived a million lives

You see I've been to Niece and the Isle of Greece
While I sipped champagne on a yacht
I moved like Harlow in Monte Carlo and showed them what I've got
I've been undressed by Kings and I've seen some things
That a woman ain't 'sposed to see
I've been to paradise but I've never been to me

Sometimes I feel like crying for unborn children
That might have made me complete
I took the sweet life and never knew I'd be bitter from the sweet
I've spent my life exploring, the subtle whoring
That costs too much to be free, though I've been to paradise
But I've never, I've never been to me

Randy Crawford I've Never Been To Me Comments
  1. Ben Giarraputo

    Great version. As is Loretta Hallidays and Mariyn Mccoos

  2. Amber Kavizel

    Undressed by kings,sipped champagne in yacht... story of my life...I wanna settle and have a family now

  3. Dave Parrott

    A very soulful rendition of that song. Thank you.

  4. Nodi Ntikinca

    As far as I'm concerned this is the best version followed by the Temptations. Charlene and Nancy don't do it for me

  5. LaVoce Devine

    This song is such an extension of my life. I'm taking the liberty of sharing my version with all listening:


  6. T Capone

    What a wonderful version !!!! She does it right. Too many idiots don't know how to do covers. They can't sing today and use fake instruments/computers - bleech! But Ms. Crawford nailed it. Thank you with love.

  7. Sihle King Luthuli

    I miss you Sbahle Penelope Shangase

  8. yerdevesi

    Charlene's version fits better, as it radiates the regret for a life lived with no care. This one radiates pride.

  9. Tahirih Lowe

    This song "The TRACK to my life so to speak"



  10. Phillip Sedumedi

    I love this Angel. She serenades my soul. South Africa. Soweto Mapetla

    Damn, it's the first I am hearing this version.... Randy took it and put a different twist to it. Love it, The thing is Randy, Charlene and the Temptations all did this song and all came out sounding differently. That's creativity unlike what's happening in the music industry now a days
