Stop! (Sam Brown)

A timeless song, by the English singer Sam Brown (Samantha Brown): “Stop!”. It is released in 1988, but did not get much attention initially. In 1989, the song peaked at number four on the UK Singles Chart, and became Brown’s biggest hit.

British singer-songwriter Jamelia Niela Davis (simply known as Jamelia) covered the song when the makers of the 2004 film Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason approached her to record it to illustrate an integral part of the film. This version is also beautiful:

Lyrics

All that I have is all that you’ve given me
Did you never worry that I’d come to depend on you
I gave you all the love that I had in me
Now that I’ve found you’ve lied, and I can’t believe it’s true

Wrapped in her arms, I see you across the street
I can’t help but wonder if she knows what’s going on
You talk about that love but you don’t know how it feels
When you realize that you’re not the only one

You’d better stop before you tear me all apart
You’d better stop before you go and break my heart
Oh, whoa, you’d better stop

Time after time, I’ve tried to walk away
But it’s not that easy when your soul is torn in two
So I just resign myself to it every day
Now all I can do is leave it up to you

You’d better stop before you tear me all apart
You’d better stop before you go and a break my heart
Oh, whoa, you’d better stop

You’d better stop if you love me
Now it’s time to be sorry
I won’t believe that you walked out on me

You’d better stop before you tear me all apart
You’d better stop before you break my lonely heart
Whoa, whoa, you better, whoa, whoa
Whoa, oh, you better stop
Better stop
