"The Answer" as written by Sean Combs and Ryan Leslie....
Yeah, I've been waiting for you
So patiently
And now you're here
You're my answer

Thank you
Yeah
I think you're my answer
Here I go

You're the answer
All this time I've tried to find you
I've been yearning
You're the answer to the question that's been burning
When they ask me who I love, you're the answer
You're my answer

Patiently I've waited for this day to finally come
Knew someday, somehow, I would find that special one
Someone perfect, someone true
Someone that I knew was you

Who can hold me tight
Keep me warm through the night
Who can wipe my tears
When it's wrong, make it right

Who can give me love until I'm satisfied
Who's the one I need in my life

You're the answer
All this time I've tried to find you
I've been yearning
You're the answer to the question that's been burning

When they ask me who I love
You're the answer
You're my answer

Baby I'm underneath your spell
Savor every moment that I have you to myself
Put my loving to the test cause baby this is destiny
Yeah, this is destiny

Who can hold me tight
Keep me warm through the night
Who can wipe my tears
When it's wrong, make it right
Who can give me love until I'm satisfied
You're the one I need in my life

You're the answer
All this time I've tried to find you
I've been yearning
You're the answer to the question that's been burning
When they ask me who I love
You're the answer
You're my answer

You're the answer
All this time I've tried to find you
I've been yearning
You're the answer to the question that's been burning

When they ask me who I love
You're the answer
You're my answer
Who can hold me tight

Keep me warm through the night
Who can wipe my tears
When it's wrong, make it right
Who can give me love until I'm satisfied
Who's the one I need in my life

You're the answer
All this time I've tried to find you
I've been yearning
You're the answer to the question that's been burning

When they ask me who I love
You're the answer
You're my answer
You're the answer

You're my answer, you're my answer, you're my answer
You're my answer

    General CommentThis song was recorded way after her and Justin broke up, I dont think it's about anyone in particular, just a love song.
