Can't Be My Lover [*]
by John Legend



Have ah piece of body where every good guy deserve
But I won't allow this girl to mess with my nerves
Blessed figure, not to mention the curves
Through the corner of her eyes she slowly observe

Anytime she come around
Something is about to go down
Listen to the siren sound
Wake up wake up right now
'Cause if I was to go to sleep
Catch me dreaming of a way to creep
Trouble always seems to follow me
Oh don't follow me now

Over and over and over again
I try to tell her no no no
I already have a friend
Over and over she's reeling me in
She says nobody has to know
But I got to let her go

So I had to walk on bye
(She can't be my lover)
She's flashing me them pretty brown eyes
(She can't be my lover)
Though there's green grass on the other side
(She can't be my lover)
All I can say is hi
She can't be my lover
Listen listen right now

Anytime she hear the beat
She be dancing right in front of me
Trying to lure me in between the sheets
But I'm a man and I still get week
But I'll be damned if I loose my girl
I'll be damned if I don't touch her
Curiosity it killed the cat
Oh and I don't want that (so)

Over and over and over again
I try to tell her no no no
I already have a friend
Over and over she's reeling me in
She says nobody has to know
But I got to let her go

So I have to walk on bye
(She can't be my lover)
Flashing me them pretty brown eyes
(She can't be my lover)
And though there's green grass on the other side
(She can't be my lover)
All I can say is hi
(She can't be my lover)
Listen listen right now

Ah couldn't let you pass even if I try
I'm a bird in the hand
Why chase one in the sky
Sex female refuse to comply
Plus she is an empress
Who want ah stand by
Been receiving love but she can't satisfy
Would like to have my cake and even enjoy the pie
Politely decline like me shy
Honey say me sof, come one give it a try
Look in ah me eyes with seductive eyes
Fill with deception trouble and lies
And ah doh want no more problems in a me life
Ask me if me number so that we could enjoy the night
She want

Over and over and over again
I try to tell her no no no
I already have a friend
(Can you hear)
Over and over she' reeling me in
Oh nobody has to know
But I got to let her go

So I have to walk on bye
(She can't be my lover)
Flashing me them pretty brown eyes
(She can't be my lover)
Though there's green grass on the other side
(She can't be my lover)
All I can say is hi
(She can't be my lover)
Listen listen right now
Listen listen right now
Listen listen right now
Listen listen right now
Listen listen right now
