Ne-Yo (echte naam Shaffer Chimere Smith) is een Amerikaanse R&B zanger en songwriter. Zijn doorbraak kwam in 2004, toen het door hem geschreven nummer Let me love you, gezongen door Mario, wereldwijd een grote hit werd. In 2006 kwam zijn debuutalbum In my own words uit.



Zijn albums volgen elkaar erg snel op: in 2007 kwam zijn tweede album Because of you en in 2008 Year of the gentleman.
Ook als songwriter is hij erg druk bezig, hij schreef hits voor onder meer Mario, Chris Brown, Snoop Dogg, Rihanna, Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Usher, Janet Jackson, Anastacia en Ciara.

In 2011 scoort hij, samen met Pitbull, Nayer en Afrojack zijn eerste nummer 1-hit met Give Me Everything. Het nummer zou zijn grootste hit worden. Turn Around, zijn samenwerking met Connor Maynard, is in 2012 zijn laatste en 13e Top 40-hit.

In 2014 werkt hij opnieuw samen met Pitbull op Times Of Our Lives, dat in februari 2015 in de Top 40 komt. Ook verschijnt dan zijn zesde studioalbum, Non Fiction, waarvan de single Coming With You als voorloper verschijnt.




Songtekst

She's staring at me
I'm sitting, wonderin' what she's thinkin'
Nobody's talking 'cause talking just turns into screaming
And now is I'm yelling over her, she's yelling over me
All that that means
is neither of us is listening
[and what's even worse]
that we don't even remember why were fighting

So both of us are mad for

Nothing [fighting for]
Nothing [crying for]
Nothing
But we wont let it go for nothing
[no not for]
Nothing
This should be nothing to a love like what we got

I know sometimes it's gonna rain
but baby, can we make up now
'cause I can't sleep through the pain
[can't sleep through the pain].

Girl, I don't wanna go to bed
[mad at you]
And I don't want you to go to bed
[mad at me]
No, I don't wanna go to bed
[mad at you]
And I don't want you to go to bed
[mad at me]

And it gets me upset, girl
when your constantly accusing.
[asking questions like you've already known]
We're fighting this war, baby
when both of us are losing.
[This ain't the way that love is supposed to go].

[what happened to working it out]
We've fall into this place
where you ain't backing down and I ain't backing down
so what the hell do we do now.

It's all for

Nothing [fighting for]
Nothing [crying for]
Nothing
but we won't let it go for nothing
[no not for]
Nothing
This should be nothing to a love like what we got

I know sometimes it's gonna rain
but baby, can we make up now
'cause I can't sleep through the pain
[can't sleep through the pain].

Girl, I don't wanna go to bed
[mad at you]
And I don't want you to go to bed
[mad at me]
No, I don't wanna go to bed
[mad at you]
And I don't want you to go to bed
[mad at me]

Oh, baby this love ain't gonna be perfect
[perfect, perfect, ohh ohh]
and just how good it's gonna be
we can fuss and we can fight
long as everything is allright between us
before we go to sleep

Baby, we're gonna be happy

I know sometimes it's gonna rain
but baby, can we make up now
'cause I can't sleep through the pain
[can't sleep through the pain]

Girl, I don't wanna go to bed
[mad at you]
And I don't want you to go to bed
[mad at me]
No, I don't wanna go to bed
[mad at you]
And I don't want you to go to bed
[mad at me]
