You're the one for me 
You can call on me 
That's all I want us to be 
You're the one for me 

I know that you're somebody else's guy 
But these feelings that I have for you 
I can't deny 
She doesn't treat you 
The way you want her to 
So come on  stop fronting 
I want to get with you 
What you're girl don't know won't hurt her 
(Hurt her) 
Anything to make this love go further 


This can be an undercover romance 
'Cause I feel like I'm the type of girl 
You could give a chance 
Taste and see 
How good it can be 
'Cause you don't have to worry (baby) 
What your girl don't know won't hurt her 
(Won't hurt her) 
Anything to make this love go further 


So, what's my chance?

In your pants 
(You don't have to worry I won't) 
Say a thing 
(And if she finds out I don't) 
Know nothing, Oh no 


You're the one for me 
(Ah ah ahah, ah ah ahah) 
When in love you need 
(Ah ah ahah, ah ah ahah) 
You're the one for ne
