"Next to You" as written by and Robert S. Kelly....
I hope I don't make you mad
With what I'm bout to say boy
Here we are once again
And I'm having second thoughts boy
I'm not messing with you head
But I changed my mind boy
I don't know why I'm here
At the same time I want you near
If you want me to leave
I will understand
See I would just have to respect
Your wishes boy
Cause if I stay ain't no telling
What may happen boy
Although you look so good to me
It's best that I leave

[Chorus]
I'm scared of being next to you
Because of what I think I might do
Boy your turning me on right now
Can't get down like that right now
Don't want to disturb the flow
But this is not my M.O.
Hold up wait a minute movin' too fast
I want somethin' like this here to last

Don't say no baby
Not right now baby
I want to be your lady
You got me going crazy
Well I guess I'll stay for a minute
Then I have to go boy
This moment is so temptin'
Right now it's not what I want boy
Maybe if we just embrace
With a simple kiss boy
But that'll only make things worse
Hope I'm not getting on your nerves boy
I just want it to be right for both of us
When you don't have to say a thing to make me comfortable
Boy you make me so weak when you look at me
But right now I'm a little confused I think it's best that I refuse

[Chorus]

Supposed to be playing cards
Or watching a movie
But we keep locking eyes boy
Now why you trying ta tease me
This room is getting heated
Would you open a window
I think I should go now
Cause I can't take this no more

[Chorus]

    General Commentman i love this song. she has a good voice, too.
    NEwayz, the song seems to be about how she's not feeling NEthing NEmore with the guy she is with. she still wants to be with him, but it doesn't feel right. you can't keep a relationship going if you just don't feel it NEmore, or else you're living a lie. don't we all wish our feelings always lasted for someone so special... sometimes things change and you can't help it. God has someone out there that we're meant to be wtih. God has a plan for us

    General CommentShes kinda starting to like get to know this guy and its kind of established that they like each other, but due to past experiences she is too scared to commit herself to somebody again. Shes scared of being next to him because she really does like him and she is worried she wont be able to contain her feelings. She is too scared of getting hurt again so she is trying not to get herself into anything that could result in anything bad. Shes trying to maintain control but she knows that if shes spending time with him it will be harder for her to keep herself from falling for him. She wants to take it slow and get to know him before anything happens with them, shes just scared of being hurt.
