Jennifer Hudson – Spotlight lyrics

Are you a man who loves
And cherishes
And cares for me?
Is that true? Is that true?
Is that true?
Are you a guard in a prison
Maximum security?
Is that true? Is that true?
Is that true?
Do we stay home all the time
Cuz you want me to yourself?
Is that true? Is that true?
Is that true?
Or am I locked away
Had a feeling that I'd find
Someone else
Is that true? Is that true?
Is that true?

Well, I don't like
Living under your spotlight
Just because you think
I might find somebody worthy
Well, I don't like
Living under your spotlight
Baby, if you treat me right
You won't have to worry

Is this a relationship
Fulfilling your needs
As well as mine
Is that true? Is that true?
Is that true?
Or is this just my sentence
Am I doing time?
Is that true? Is that true?
Is that true?
If this is love
Real, real love
Then I'm staying no doubt
But if I'm just a prisoner
Then I'm busting out
Is that true? Is that true?
Is that true?


Oh, you oughta be
Ashamed of yourself
What the hell
Do you think you're doing?
Loving me, loving me
So wrong
Baby, all I do is try
To show you
That you're my
One and only guy
(Only guy)
No matter
Who may come along
Open your eyes
Cuz baby, I don't lie

(Chorus 2x)

    This song mean what I'm going thru right now. I love my man but I don't like the fact I have to live under his spotlight. He wants to be everywhere with me and he said "THE POINT OF BEING WITH SOMEONE IS BEING WITH THEM" He wont let me have a ladies night out. Almost as if he didn't trust me. I told him he was acting very insecure. And I never gave him reason to feel that way. I do know he loves me alot. And same here. But that can run me away if he doesn't ease up a little. So she got this song off! I really feel it when I hear it! Keep it up ma!

    I think she is a relationship with a man that is jealous. Apparently he's afraid that she may find someone else, he's not doing something he should be. All I can say is get out from under the spotlight. That's not good. I love the music to this song, the lyrics I can't relate to. To old, independent and set in my ways for a spotlight. I like Jennifer's music. I think she will do well in the music world. She's young, talented and virbant. Much luck to her.

    This is my jam. I think this song, and her album is going to be a big hit. When I get my allowence, I will definitely buy this. I love thihs song. I love the hoo part. This song means she wants to do her own thing. She can be independent, and she doesn'tneed her man telling her what to do every minute of the day. She doesn't like living in his spotlight.

    I think this song means that she is in a relationship with a guy who is smothering her and contolling her. For example he probably don't let her go any where and tries to keep her in the house and he probably don't want her to go anywhere becaus ehe thinks she might find someone else or cheat on him. Basically he is trying to tell her what she can and can not do and where she could and could not go. And she is seeing that and she wants him to know that if he is trying to be controlling like that she isn't having it so change up your act or I'm leaving.
