"Maxine" as written by Ommas Keith-graham, John Roger Stephens, Taz Arnold and Shafiq Husayn....
I happened to notice a girl, in a light shade of blue
I happened to see her the sight of her leaves me confused

She may not be you
But she looks just like you
She may not be you
But she looks just like you

You should've seen the way she wore her dress
And her white stiletto shoes
You should've seen the way they looked on her,
Just like the ones that I bought you
I searched for days on end to no avail 'til I found them in Peru
She must've been to Lima just as well
Because she had them too

You should've seen her eyes, her lips, her face
She looked as sweet as honeydew
You should've seen the way she walked away
Oh, she swayed her hips like you

I was only several steps from her but she never noticed me
I took another sip of fine liqueur
It was quite a sight to see

I happened to notice the girl in the light shade of blue
I happened to see her the sight of her leaves me confused

She may not be you
But she looks just like you
She may not be you
But she looks just like you

Oh, you should've seen the way he stroked her hair,
And the smile that lit her face
You should've seen the way he kissed her lips
Did it have the same sweet taste?

Though my mind it might be running wild in constant search of you
It's funny how my eyes keep seeing things,
My heart would not believe are true

I happened to notice a girl, in a light shade of blue
I happened to see her the sight of her leaves me confused

She may not be you
But she looks just like you
She may not be you
But she looks just like you

Maxine, she looks just like you
Maxine, she looks just like you
Maxine, Maxine, Maxine, Maxine
Maxine, Maxine, Maxine, Maxine

    General CommentI agree. His heart simply cannot accept that he's being cheated on.

    General CommentJohn Legend sings about cheating every other song. Really good artist though, he does it in a creative way.
