"Priest or Police" as written by Van Hunt and Curtis Whitehead....
Whether she be priest or police, the first one on the scene is a thief
I won't believe a word she says
She won't have your smile
We can hang for a while,
But I know I'll miss you just the same

E-ro-tic conversation is no substitute for what you do,
And what I lose when I'm without you
It's easy to hold back temptation
My night's getting longer, getting stronger and stronger
Baby don't you worry!

So I returned her gifts, and upset the evening's happiness
But it's best...
I don't wanna lead her on, or give her the wrong idea
I'd much rather be here, with my tears...
Waiting on your return

E-ro-tic conversation is no substitute for what you do,
And what I lose when I'm without you
It's easy to hold back temptation
My night's getting longer, getting stronger and stronger
Baby don't you worry!

Girl there's no pressure, I'm happy when we're together
I'll be here waiting for you
I'm in no hurry
Girl, now don't you worry
I'll be here waiting for you

If she's sweeter than usual I'll say a polite no
Then I'll turn to go home
Satisfy me in every way
You're a different girl everyday
You suit my tastes
And you're all I need to know

E-ro-tic conversation is no substitute for what you do,
And what I lose when I'm without you
It's easy to hold back temptation
My night's getting longer, getting stronger and stronger
Baby don't you worry!

Girl there's no pressure, I'm happy when we're together
I'll be here waiting for you (waiting for you)
I'm in no hurry
Girl, now don't you worry
I'll be here waiting for you

Girl there's no pressure, I'm happy when we're together
I'll be here waiting for you (waiting for you)
I'm in no hurry
Girl, now don't you worry
I'll be here waiting for you

I'm in no rush
You're worth is more than "two in the bush"
I'll be here waiting for you

Girl there's no pressure, I'm happy when we're together
I'll be here waiting for you (waiting for you)
I'll be here waiting for you .... yeah

    General CommentIn this song, I believe that he is saying that while their relationship may be over for now, he is telling her that he will be there waiting for her to come back. I love the whole idea of the "first one on the scene" being a thief. By saying that, and by adding the line about them "hanging for a while, but him knowing he'll miss his ex-love just the same" he is kind of addressing the rebound situation. It's like, sure she (the next one on the scene) may be great, but the person he wants to be with is the love of his life. So he waits... and it's not that much of a happy time, hence the "with my tears, waiting on your return." In fact, there is no indication whether she will actually return to him... BUT, he loves her so much that he will be there if (or when) she realizes that she loves him too... so sweet! I hope she does come back :)

    Song Meaningsilly rabbits...

    It's a song to a woman, saying "there's no substitute for her."

    Whether she(ANOTHER WOMAN) be priest or police, the first one on the scene is a thief
    I won't believe a word she says
    She won't have your smile(SINGING TO HIS LOVE)
    We can hang for a while, (REFERRING TO HIM AND THE OTHER WOMAN)
    But I know I'll miss you just the same (REGARDLESS OF THE ANOTHER)

    E-ro-tic conversation (FROM ANOTHER WOMAN) is no substitute for what you do,
    And what I lose when I'm without you (SING IT VAN HUNT!)
    It's easy to hold back temptation (OOOH BABY)
    My night's getting longer, Igetting stronger and stronger
    Baby don't you worry!

    So I returned her gifts, and upset the evening's happiness (WITH THIS OTHER CHICK)
    But it's best...
    I don't wanna lead her on, or give her the wrong idea (BECAUSE HE LOVES YOU)
    I'd much rather be here, with my tears...
    Waiting on your return (BECAUSE HE LOVES YOU)

    ...get it now silly rabbits?
