lyrics

Verse 1:

Some things happened so long ago, feel like another lifetime
this beat jogged my memory and this came down the pipeline
young love, life was so simple I had no car
I made a hundred bucks a week and stretched that yard out so far
with dinner and a movie, pay my 1-800 beeper bill
staying up all night with no cares and I would sleep until
I felt like waking up, boring and complacent
tryna find manhood while living in my mama basement
it lead to infidelity inevitably I strayed
cause a man will change his women way before he change his ways
and it's too late you realize your mistakes and she ain't feeling
the same and now the pain got you crying like Lenny Williams
I found out the hard way, now I'm just facing it
mad cause I scratched the soundtrack to my relationship
another sad song, cause the finest woman you'll ever see
is your ex when she's on another mans arm


Hook:

you know it when it's going on
it's when the other person's happiness is more important than your own

no more searching
you just one person in the world but you mean the whole world to one person


Verse 2:

I tell you cats don't be rappin' bout love no more
you don't always have to act like a thug homebul
it's ok to open up to a woman if she's worth it
especially she make you feel like your life got a purpose
I had some great women in my life that adored me
who made me feel like that they would leap through fire for me
might sound kinda corny might sound kinda wack
when bills fly in the front door and love fly out the back
gotta understand and seek to be understood
effective communication keeps the loving good
you gotta put your work in
you wanna be American Pimp or be the Last American Virgin
you keep the love alive if not it's gonna be dead soon
a lady in the street a hellcat up in the bedroom
pick your poison I ain't tryna make no sappy song
just letting you know a happy wifey makes a happy home


Hook:

you know it when it's going on
it's when the other person's happiness is more important than your own

no more searching
you just one person in the world but you mean the whole world to one person


Verse 3:

to be brutally honest I used to lay down with the finest
woman you ever seen and took advantage of their kindness
had sex unprotected and, dick got infected
promised never again, but still went back to being reckless
I grew outta that but back then you couldn't tell me nothing
tell'em I'm making love to'em but I ain't even love'em
had a lotta fun but I was on the wrong path
booty text messages, threesomes gone bad
hooking up with mad chicks that's single
at the midweek after work mix and mingle
young homies peepin' game like "Side is my hero"
cause I was loving black women more than Robert Deniro
but then I did the Asian, White, and Puerto Rican thing
african death stroke, forty four chicken wing
sex positions, got promoted to my next position of manhood
I settled down now I'm damn good

Hook:

you know it when it's going on
it's when the other person's happiness is more important than your own

no more searching
you just one person in the world but you mean the whole world to one person
