Years on the run, boy I know I can take it
And now that I'm here I know you can't stand
The waiting, boy
Let's say no more games, no messin' with the mind
Always room for change, let's give it one more try

Come on, let's give it a try

I got my bags packed baby and I'm ready to go
Look in my eyes rock steady and I'll promise you more
I got my heart back baby and it's skippin' a beat
I got my ass in check check and now I'm ready to be

If you're good to go I'm right here fot the takin' (ooh, take it, take it, take it)
Don't cross the line I'll promise you no fakin' boy (no, no, no, no)
It's all understood, no messin' with the rules (the rules, the rules)
If I let you go, boy I would be a fool

What kind of girl wants to be a fool

I got my bags packed baby and I'm ready to go
Look in my eyes rock steady and I'll promise you more
I got my heart back baby and it's skippin' a beat
I got my ass in check check and now I'm ready to be

Tell me why we act so stupid with games we're playing (ooooh)
Life is so cool when we're heading towards the same thing
You and I work best with love instead of the fighting (ooooh)
Let's get together forever boy, no more hiding

I got my bags packed baby and I'm ready to go
Look in my eyes rock steady and I'll promise you more
I got my heart back baby and it's skippin' a beat
I got my ass in check check and now I'm ready to be

I got my bags packed baby and I'm ready to go
Look in my eyes rock steady and I'll promise you more
I got my heart back baby and it's skippin' a beat
I got my ass in check check and now I'm ready to be
