[Chorus: x2] I've been wondering about the complexity Of what we have it shouldn't be More Just can't see More You're physically in this, but how could we tell If we was meant to be in bliss if you're not mentally as well? This energy you're sending me is tricky as hell Usually it's like a 50/50, we could take a L Before we start things, at this point being apart brings The feeling of somebody plucking at your heart strings I know it probably shouldn't feel like this But any other woman I see is in your likeness It's from your cheekbones Yo your lips, to your curves, to your deep moans To that walk, to your words You love feeling like a breakdown on the verge First we on good terms, then you on my last nerves Got my back just aching, my shoes is all tight It's too complex when we choose to do it right It's wrong, one minute you a soldier strong Then you trying a route talking about it's over and gone [Chorus] When your boyfriend's in town, it's bound to be trouble, Love His name Black, and he known to be a lover of Getting it on with my smoker's jacket on Eyes racing back and forth listening to Chaka Khan Trying to figure the cause why you always acting off like I'm slacking off Maybe our signal's getting crossed For the case Love, you feel like you making a waste of Your precious time you need to get a taste of Some space to breathe, a moment as friends We should've felt ourselves slipping into it again 'Cause it's like off and on, on and off Passion, lost and found, found and lost Clashing, asking for nothing but understanding Your hearts made of glass, use care when handling Girl, all in all I never leave you stranded 'Cause my respect you commanded, you figure it out [Chorus] I used to come into the party and stand around 'Cause I was kinda too shy to really get down I used to play the corner and watch the scene Deep down knowing I wanted to find me a queen And I could feel that in my stomach and up in my chest Because I knew a lot of women, and some was fresh But then I found you girl, and just like me You had a heart that was yearning to be set free Now listen, see you and me we need to take the time To erase any doubt that's inside your mind It's not a mountain that I'm ever too tired to climb And who's counting, but I know at least a thousand times I let you know I'm here for you, care for you, and confide in you Break bread, share with you, and provide for you And that's full time, it's no 9 to 5 with you That's why I'm trying to work it out with you, it's gonna work [Chorus]
