I know I said I would roll with you 
Put my lifestyle on hold for you 
All them sweet things that I told you 
This conversation is overdue 
Freeze! 

Getting too wild to respect the vow
I just ain't ready to settle down 
My name too big in the ghetto now 
Freeze! 

Feels like I'm ready when I'm holding you 
But it's so many honey's what I'm supposed to do? 
Keep sending them apology notes to you? 
Freeze! 

All I need is for you to freeze
This is hard on me
I don't wanna leave
But in the mean time take back the keys and 
Freeze! 

Don't change 
Don't go 
Don't leave 
Just freeze! 
I know girl it's a lot to ask! 
Tell me what other choice I have
When you love someone reach back 
Just freeze! 
Don't change 
Don't go 
Don't leave 
Just freeze! 
Girl I hope you understand
Promise I'll be back for you
When I become a better man 

Why I gotta do this? 
I ain't sure 
Why I gotta wild out? 
Iono 
I know how it feels
I been hurt before 
I know you disappointed you expected more 
Freeze! 

I'm loosing a good one and that's fo'sho 
I be tryina fight but it calls me yo 
Please don't change the locks on tha door 
Freeze! 

Quit cryin' 'cause it ain't yo fault
Blame it on the streets of New York 
Young L gotta walk this walk girl 
Freeze! 

I know it's rough but I need your support 
You said it all last time that we fought
So don't talk baby hold that thought and 
Freeze! 

Don't change 
Don't go 
Don't leave 
Just freeze! 
I know girl it's a lot to ask! 
Tell me what other choice I have 
When you love someone reach back 
Just freeze! 
Don't change 
Don't go 
Don't leave 
Just freeze! 
Girl I hope you understand
Promise I'll be back for you 
When I become a better man 

What would you think if I told you that I 
Knew that I was breaking your heart
Want to explain but where should I start? 
What would you think if I told you that I 
Wake up every morning with a different girl
Cause I don't wanna settle down before I see the world! 
What would you think if I told you that I 
Know exactly what you need indeed 
Hate to follow but I'm scared to lead 
Too scared love will get the best of me 
I know deep down by the zest of me 
Hopefully some day I can give you that ring 
But until then just do this one thing 
Freeze! 

Don't change 
Don't go 
Don't leave 
Just freeze! 
I know girl it's a lot to ask! 
Tell me what other choice I have
When you love someone reach back 
Just freeze! 
Don't change 
Don't go 
Don't leave 
Just freeze! 
Girl I hope you understand 
Promise I'll be back for you
When I become a better man 
Freeze! 

I mean listen, I like you 
It's not like I forgot about you 
Know what I'm sayin' 
I just gotta get this out of my system 
Knowhadimean? 
If I could just freeze you 
Iono if I'm ready for a relationship, 
You know what I'm sayin' 
I mean, I know we gonna be together one day 
Matter of fact I promise you 
But for right now I just need you to 
Freeze!
