Gwen Stefani - The Sweet Escape

Woo-who, yee-who
Woo-who, yee-who
Woo-who, yee-who
Woo-who, yee-who

If I could escape
I would, but first of all let me say
I must apologize for acting stank and treating you this way
Cause I've been acting like sour milk all on the floor
It's your fault you didn't shut the refrigerator
Maybe that's the reason I've been acting so cold

If I could escape (escape)
And re-create a place that's my own world (own world)
And I could be your favorite girl forever, perfectly together
And tell me boy, now wouldn't that be sweet? (sweet escape)

If I could be sweet (be sweet)
I know I've been a real bad girl (bad girl)
I didn't mean for you to get hurt
Whatsoever, we can make it better
And tell me boy, now wouldn't that be sweet? (sweet escape)

Woo-who, I wanna get away
Yee-who, (get away)
Woo-who, To our sweet escape
Yee-who, (sweet escape)
Woo-who, I wanna get away
Yee-who, (get away)
Woo-who, Ooh yeah
Yee-who, (ooh yeah)

You melt me down
I'm at my lowest boiling point
Come help me out
I need to get me out of this joint
Come on, let's bounce
Counting on you to turn me around
Instead of clowning around let's look for some common ground

So baby, times gettin' a little crazy
I've been gettin' a little lazy
Waiting for you to come save me
I can see that you're angry
By the way that you treat me
Hopefully you don't leave me
I want to take you with me

If I could escape (escape)
And re-create a place that's my own world (own world)
And I could be your favorite girl forever, perfectly together
And tell me boy, now wouldn't that be sweet? (sweet escape)

If I could be sweet (be sweet)
I know I've been a real bad girl (bad girl)
I didn't mean for you to get hurt
Whatsoever, we can make it better
And tell me boy, now wouldn't that be sweet? (sweet escape)

Woo-who, yee-who
Woo-who, yee-who
If I could escape
Woo-who, yee-who
Woo-who, yee-who
If I could escape
Woo-who, yee-who
Woo-who, yee-who

Cause I've been acting like sour milk all on the floor
It's your fault you didn't shut the refrigerator
Maybe that's the reason I've been acting so cold

If I could escape (escape)
And re-create a place that's my own world (own world)
And I could be your favorite girl forever, perfectly together
And tell me boy, now wouldn't that be sweet? (sweet escape)

If I could be sweet (be sweet)
I know I've been a real bad girl (bad girl)
I didn't mean for you to get hurt
Whatsoever, we can make it better
And tell me boy, now wouldn't that be sweet? (sweet escape)

Woo-who, I wanna get away
Yee-who, (get away)
Woo-who, To our sweet escape
Yee-who, (sweet escape)
Woo-who, I wanna get away
Yee-who, (get away)
Woo-who, Ooh yeah
Yee-who, (ooh yeah)

Woo-who, yee-who
Woo-who, yee-who

"The Sweet Escape" is a pop song written by Gwen Stefani, Akon, and Giorgio Tuinfort for Stefani's second solo album The Sweet Escape. "The Sweet Escape", which features elements of doo-wop, New Wave, and ska music, is an apology for a fight between two lovers and describes a dream of a pleasant life for them. As the album's title track, its title was chosen to help market Stefani's music and fashion lines. Although it was released as the second single from Stefani's second solo album in 2007, it had been sent to U.S. radio in December 2006. The song debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 chart at #93 in December 2006, and it peaked at #2 in April 2007 behind Akon's subsequent single "Don't Matter". The song spent 15 consecutive weeks in the top ten and remained on the chart for over nine months, listed at #3 on the year-end chart. The song was nominated for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals at the 2008 Grammy Awards but lost to Robert Plant and Alison Krauss' "Gone Gone Gone (Done Moved On)".
