Oooooh, aaliyah
Every once in awhile
I see her smile
It turns my day around
Girl with those eyes
Could stare through the lies
And see what your heart was saying

[CHORUS:]
Think of Aaliyah
Laugh, don't cry
I know
She'd want it that way
Hey yea
When ya think of Aaliyah
Laugh, don't cry
I know
She'd want it that way

Ooooooh

Friend of a friend
Friend 'til the end
That's the kind of girl she was

Taken away
So young
Taken away
Without a warning, oh

[CHORUS:]

(Think of Aaliyah, oooh)
Laugh, don't cry
(I know)
She'd want it that way
(Hey yeah)

(When ya') think of Aaliyah, (oooh)
Laugh , don't cry
(I know)
She'd want it that way

Whoa

I know you, (I know )
And your here, (and your here)
In every day we live, (day that we live, day we live)
I know her, (I know her)
And she's here, (and I know that she's still here)
I can feel her when she sings, (ooohhh)

[2ND CHORUS:]
Aaliyah, (Aaliyah)
Where are you now
(Are you far away from here)
(Far away), far away
I don't think so,(I tell you I don't think so)
I think your here
Yea
Taking our tears away,
[Shawn] Taking our tears (away)

(Think of Aaliyah)
(Laugh, don't cry)
(I know )
(She'd want it that way), she'd want it that way, (hey yea)
(When you think of Aaliyah)
(Laugh, don't cry) yeah, don't cry, don't cry
(I know)
(She'd want it that way), she'd want it that way
(Well I know)
She'd want it that, (want it that way)

(Aaliyah)

I know
She'd want it that way

(Aaliyah)

I know
She'd want it that way

(Aaliyah)
