I'd rather be with you...but I can't stand the things we go thru
throw my hands up, like "I'm so thru"
since the day I met you, if you're my soul mate...I have no clue
we can't make it work? according to who?
it's like I'm spinning, I'm high in another time zone
I feel like I'm winning, everytime we chat over the phone
they all say forget me...
but you can't seem to leave me alone
I can't lie, you're my Nia Long, my Larenz Tate...you're like my LOVE JONES
I wish they all just let us be...
...let time tell...so we could see...
cause I know we're meant to be--I feel different when you're next to me
and with all the wrong I do, you don't ever think less of me
...that's how I know you're the best for me.
-is it magic, or pure destiny?
they told me I'm crazy, like you've got the best of me
you put a hex on me...
I'm giving you my lockett, I know you'll find the key
I was feeling like I could never do this again, but you are the key...
they gave me a hundred reasons why I should just forget you
...and let you go with the wind...but then again...
I'd rather be with you, even if it's a sin
they can all talk, but they'll never know how we feel within...
my homie, lover, friend...
to make us work, we gotta do all we can...
show them our love's above all
even stronger than man...
let's put them to shame, and make them understand
no matter what they say, I've got you in my plans...
baby take my hands...
I'd rather be with you.
