Born and raised in Inglewood, California, Melissa’s passion has been to sing, entertain and inspire since she was 7 years old.

Putting herself to the test she decided to give up working her 9-5 job and sold everything that she owned that would help pay for the making of her album Melissa McCloud – “Letting Go”.

She had to overcome many challenges and tests for a while but she still kept pressing on with Faith with the belief that if she could reach people all over the world with her music, part of her life’s purpose would be served.

Lyrics

Letting Go

Written By: Melissa McCloud

Letting Go

I will always love you
That’s one thing I know for sure
And I don’t regret it, no
Our love was pure
And now our heart’s in distance places and I

Chorus
I, I, I, I, I, I, I’m letting go
I, I, I, I, I, want you to know
This time’s for sure there is no cure
So here I am to take a stand and let you go

Now time’s always changing
As it has changed our love
There’s some things worth fighting for
And some things you must let go of
And now the love has gone between us and I

Chorus

Now years have passed us by
And now you ask me why
Why I feel this way and why my heart has changed

And now when I look back and moving from the past
I don’t want the fighting no more crying
I loved you so but I can’t take no more, I won’t take no more, I can’t take no more
No no no no no no no no no no more No more
Goodbye
Goodbye, bye

Chorus

Oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh, goodbye
This time’s for sure there is no cure so here I am to take a stand and let you go

Anything But Me

Written By: Melissa McCloud

Anything but Me

I’ve been here once before now I won’t take it
I’m who I am and this time I won’t fake it
So when I come around don’t ask me to be what I’m not
I’ll do what makes me happy and just in case that you forgot

I will never change but yet you still ask me for more
My heart is bigger than the ocean but I can’t take no more
It’s just too bad that you can’t see that beauty is skin deep and you ask
Asked me to be, anything but me

Anything but me
Anything but me you asked me to be
Anything but me, wanted me to be oh no

No one’s the same that makes us very different
Don’t try to box me in cause I am special
The fire that burns in me makes me hungry can’t you see
To do just what I feel cause I am happy and I am free and

I will never change but yet you still ask me for more
My heart is bigger than the ocean but I can’t take no more
It’s just too bad that you can’t see that beauty is skin deep and you ask
Asked for me to be, anything but me

I can’t take no more this I know for sure
No more can’t take it no more I won’t take it no more to be anything but me

I’ve been here once before
I said I’ve been here once before
I’m who I am and this time I won’t fake it

So when I come around don’t ask me to be what I’m not
I’ll do what makes me happy and just in case that you forgot

I will never change, but yet you still ask me for more
My heart is bigger than the ocean but I can’t take no more
It’s just too bad that you can’t see that beauty is skin deep
And you asked you asked me to be,

Anything but me, anything but me, anything but me, anything but me
Anything but me, you ask me to be
Anything but me, wanted me to be
Anything but me, yeah

Lukewarm

Written By: Melissa McCloud

Lukewarm

I know if I can change you can change. 1-2-3-4, hey, yeah

Say yes or say no, cause maybe just won’t work
Either you want me either you don’t cause I don’t know
Is it me, I think it’s you trying to play me like a fool
So be bold and tell me go or baby let me know

If you’re hot or cold baby let me know
If you’re gonna change, make your choice today
Cause lukewarm is a, lukewarm is a bitch

I know if I can change you can change
Cause lukewarm is a trip
I know if I can change you can change

Stop playing with my mind saying everything is fine
I hate it when you lie, you make promises and then deny me of the truth so follow suit
Stand up and hold your ground
It eats me up inside when you can’t make up your mind

If you’re hot or cold baby let me know
If you’re gonna change, make your choice today
Cause lukewarm is a, lukewarm is a bitch

I know if I can change you can change
Tell the truth don’t lie cause lukewarm is a bitch
I know if I can change you can change, change

Make a change make your mind today stop telling lies I will survive

Why don’t you make a change make up your mind today stop telling me false lies (I will survive)
This time I know the deal so won’t you come for real I’ll tell the truth that I (I will survive)

I know if I can change you can change, cause lukewarm is a trip
Yeah whoa cause lukewarm is a trip
Hot or cold let me know

If you’re hot or cold (hot or cold)
Baby let me know (let me know)
If you’re gonna change (gonna change)
Make your choice today

Whoa hot, hot or cold let me know change today or be on your way
Hot or cold, let me know change today or be on your way…..Or be on your way
