I'm lookin' for my one and only
Every time I turn around
I find my heart in pieces on the ground so, so lonely
I'm lookin' for my one and only

I'm riding home in pain again, baby
But that don't mean shit to you
You're currently engaged
In an intimate conversation
With a young groupie or two
They say "Players only love you
When they're playing games"
Still, I gave my heart to you
I should have stayed away
Like my friends all told me to

Every time I turn around
I find my heart in pieces on the ground so, so lonely
I'm lookin' for my one and only
Every time I turn around
I find my heart in pieces on the ground
Why can't I find my one and only

See, I'm looking for a man that'll rub me slow
Make me sing real high
When he goes down low
But see, it ain't just a physical thing
He's gotta treat me affectionately
And I gotta know he won't betray my trust
Just like every other motherfucker does
Is this just an impossible dream, baby
Too elusive to pursue
It's been such a sad and windy road for me
Just searchin' for the truth

Every time I turn around
I find my heart in pieces on the ground so, so lonely
I'm lookin' for my one and only
Every time I turn around
I find my heart in pieces on the ground
Why can't I find my one and only

Now you know I roll a Beamer and a Benz 
And I'm dishin' out N's 
While you trippin' on a playa
Baller, havin' bitter conversations 
While we're rollin' on 24's 
And I know you got doubts 
Why you listen to what people talk about
You ain't figured out why they call ya 
The heavy steady hatin' cause 
You rollin' on 24's 
See how your money flows
You dress in designer clothes 
From head to the toe
You ain't satisfied, well tell me 
What you lookin' for

I'm lookin' for my one and only

Well, I'll be your one and only 
If you give me a chance
I'll make the change for you, girl 
I know I ain't been the most faithful 
Nigga in the world
But let's stay together so we can shine like pearls
Spittin it to ya while I roll a shisha of fire
To kiss your lips, I desire
Twist and Mariah, together like a 
Grip on the tire 

I'm lookin' for my one and only

Well, come on Shorty, let me make it better 
We can do whatever 
While we're sittin' on suede and leather 
Thinkin' through the city 
While we rollin' lonely 
Let's kick it in the Chi
I know I messed up with ya, I ain't gon' lie
I know you were feelin' 
You really know your guy 
But baby girl, I ain't mean to blow your high 
Let me pick the pieces up 
And put them back together cause I want to be with you 
Don't want to leave you lonely
Ride with you like a homey, never, no phony
Shorty, can I be your one and only

Every time, oh mm
Every time I turn around
I find my heart in pieces on the ground so, so lonely
Why I'm looking for my one and only
Every time I turn around ah, ha ha ha ha
I find my heart in pieces on the ground
Why can't I find my one and only
Still lookin' for my one and only
Every time I turn around ah, ha ha ha ha
I find my heart in pieces on the ground so, so lonely
Yeah, I'm lookin' for my one and only
I'm lookin' for my one and only
Every time I turn around ah, ha ha ha ha
I find my heart in pieces on the ground
I'm lookin' for my one and only
Why can't I find my one and only, ah
