Teena Marie - Naked To The World Lyrics

Hello stranger, don't say a word
'Cause we haven't got much time
So for now just hold me

I'm wishing on a star, baby, to follow where you are
And to shine, like you shined when your love was mine
Before we were, now what we are

Baby, there's a silence that's golden in my eyes
And if you'd just listen my lips will tell you why

That when I say that I'm a lonely girl
I'm feeling like I'm naked to the world
And if you leave with my defenses down
I'll never hear another sound but my heart

Beating-hush don't explain
'Cause we've got to make the most
Out of every moment

I'm wishing, wishing on a star to follow where you are
And though the time moves so fast in the hourglass
Can you give me now what you are

Baby there was winter in our discontent
And if you just listen I'll tell you what I meant

That when I say that I'm a lonely girl
I'm feeling like I'm naked to the world
And if you leave with my defenses down
I'll never hear another sound but my heart

Beating, beating-whoa, whoa, whoa
Naked to the silence that's ringing, ringing in my ears
And if you'd just listen my lips are gonna tell you dear

That when I say that I'm a lonely girl
I'm feeling like I'm naked
I'm feeling like I'm naked
I'm feeling like, I'm feeling like I'm naked
Naked, naked to the world
Naked to the, naked to the world

That when I say that I'm a lonely girl
Oh I can't stand it-No, I can't stand it
That ain't the way no-that ain't the way God planned it
Naked to the world, I'm just a lonely girl
I'm living in a lonely world
And if you walk out my door
I won't be able to stand no more

    Lula Peoples

    also Ms Teena, no one can sing like her, Brown Sugar covered in Snow

  23. Armenio Zeitounlian

    No one ever sang like her. No one ever will.

    Alex Chen

    You are telling NO lies. This song moved me so much when I was in high school, like I felt like it was something I'd felt before, that I could connect to. As I get older, I'm sure it will come to mean even more.

    Renee Satchel

    Have you noticed no one has ever tried to redo too many of her songs? Then or now

    Jonathan Graham

    @Renee Satchel Does her daughter own her songbook? Whoever has it is not managing it well

  24. Carla Linton

  29. Lala Shelala

    This song is a true masterpiece. I dont understand how anyone could dislike this. She was absolutely brilliant!

    wild& peaceful

    Lala Shelala wasn't she

  30. Helen Andreou

    I had the pleasure and honor of seeing her in concert in 1991, major ambition of mine. No one could and can match her voice.

    Renee Satchel

    I've seen her twice in concert as well. She was always in Detroit.

  31. Whirlaway

    This entire album is a masterpiece. You can put it on & just let it go til the end. Amazing, especially this & The Once & Future Dream with Rick James

    Sean Burns

    It is.....

  32. Alfredo Martinez

    One of the best female blue eyed soul singer of my generation one of a kind from r&b, funk, jazz, pop and hip-hop way beyond her years and wow! those lyrics I'm glad to have heard her music.

  33. Danniella Whittick

    I'm a big fan of teena and it seems like not even as a fan I can know all of her songs! Every time I log in I learn something new!!!! Geez!!!! Phew! Can't get tired tho. Just found this song and I can't move on even I reeeeeaaallllyyyy have to.... O_0 am I getting addicted???? lol


    +Danniella Whittick That's how it is with me! This week alone I've come across 5 Teena Marie songs! I legit know 30+ songs


    I felt the same way, I keep discovering more and more and falling more in love with her as an artist!

  34. Lala Shelala

    What an incredibly talented woman. No one can sing like her!!

  35. Frederick Johnson

    Love this forever

  36. Nick Velasquez

    This track should have gotten more air time. I have heard it only once on the air. Perhaps one of the best tracks on this album.

  37. 1318Woodnell

    This CD is the BOMB! I've bought is twice!

  38. Gregory Webster

    This a lowkey jam back in the day.

  39. BBFkommoncense29

    Heartbeat Props to our "LADY TEE" who passed on 2 years ago on Dec. 26,2010. We miss you and you'll never be forgotten. This song still sounds better than most of the c-r-u-d that is out today !!!!!!! Looking forward to the final CD "Beautiful" coming this month on January 15th, 2013 !!!!!!! You'll always be our "BROWN SUGAR COVERED IN SNOW" !!!!!!!
