Alicia Keys lyrics aren’t exactly poetry, but they are genuine, heartfelt and feel as though she lifted them from her own diary to share them with us via song. Although she is largely viewed as a girl with a piano and a big voice, it’s what that massive, beautiful voice says that’s equally as important. She didn’t name one of her albums ‘The Diary of Alicia Keys’ for nothin’. There is power in her simplicity when it comes to words.
When it comes to Alicia Keys lyrics, there have been some memorable and unforgettable lines over the years. The songstress’ words are destined to be repeated by her fans, especially females, since they are so easy to relate to and often center on topics like love, the nature of one’s womanhood and her relationship to her city of origin, N.Y.C.

"I keep on fallin' / In and out of love with you / I never loved someone / The way that I loved you / Oh, oh, I never felt this way / How do you give me so much pleasure and cause me so much pain? / Just when I think I've taken more than would a fool / I start fallin' back in love with you."
"I know some people search the world / To find something like what we have / I know people will try, try to divide something so real / So till the end of time, I'm telling you that in the world / No one, no one / Can get in the way of what I'm feeling."
"In New York / Concrete jungle where dreams are made, oh / There's nothing you can't do, now you're in New York / These streets will make you feel brand new / Big lights will inspire you, let's hear it for New York / New York, New York."
"Everybody stares, as she goes by / 'Cause they can see the flame that's in her eyes / Watch her when she's lighting up the night / Nobody knows that she's a lonely girl / And it's a lonely world / But she gon' let it burn, baby, burn, baby."
"It's alright to feel however you want to / There's no limitation no / Fill up your life / Let me see your hands up one time / I celebrate mine / 'Cause I ain't gonna get no more /So we can do this all night."
"If I talk a little louder / If I speak up when you're wrong / If I walk a little taller / I'd been under you too long / If you noticed that I'm different / Don't take it personally / Don't be mad, it's just a brand new me / That ain't bad, I found a brand new kind of free."
"I'm not easy, yeah, you gotta work for it / I'm the real thing, and baby gotta please me / All that talkin', boy, you better walk it /All that frontin', that's not how you do it / If you really need me like you say you need me /Baby better show me, baby, better come and say."
