"I Decided" as written by Solange Knowles and Pharrell L Williams....
Ooh
Can’t hear myself (no no)
Can you please turn me up a little bit more

I was a little different
I didn't do what the fast girls do
You studied my rhythm
Now you can speed me up when you want to ooh

They were to cool to run my race
You kept the pace with a smile on ya face
Go head baby (go head baby)
Then I knew he was you (then I knew it was you!)

But first you took me around
Introduced me to your family and friends
And told them how that once we met that
We would never lose
Oh boy

I decided that you are the him for me (I decided)
Oh boy
'Cause I decided that you are the him for me (yes you are)
Oh my boy

How's it feel to win it
When ain't no mountains that you can't move
Your mind is like a prism
For god's light to shine throw ooh

They were to cool to run my race (yeah!!!)
You kept the pace with a smile on ya face
Go head baby (go head baby!!!)
Then I knew he was you (then I knew it was you)

But first you took me around
Introduced me to your family and friends
And told them how that once we met that
We would never lose (never lose never lose)
Oh boy

I decided that you are the him for me
Oh boy
'Cause I decided that you are the him for me
Oh boy
I decided that you are the him for me (you are the one for me baby)
Oh my boy (whoa boy)

You were running me running me down (down)
Telling me telling me wait
Running me down and telling me you were never gonna let go
Is the way you got me
Ooh! The way you got me when you got me baby
Ooh now you got me baby

You were running me running me down (running)
Telling me telling me wait (telling me telling me wait)
Running me down and telling you were never gonna let go
Is the way you got me

Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby
Don't break my heart (whoa)
Let me take it from you (let me take it from you)
Cause were one and the closer I get
To you the more fearful I become
That would break me in two Honey

Hahaha!

'Cause I decided that you are the him for me
Oh my boy (yes I)
You were running me running me down (running me running me down!)
Telling me telling me wait
Running me down and telling me you were never gonna let go (yeah yeah yeah)
Is the way you got me
That’s the way you got me baby
That’s the way you got me baby

    I'm not saying Solange can reach the vocal ranges of Beyonce, but were not here to compare them, there totally different artists

    My Interpretation
    This song seems to be about a guy who cared enough about her to wait until she was ready to have sex.

    I think in the first line “best” should be “fast”. I hear “best” too, but fast makes more sense to me.

    I was a little different/I didn’t do what the fast girls do

    The “fast” girls were quick to give it up and she wasn’t.

    Studied my rhythm/Now you can speed me up when you want to.

    By getting to know her, he made her feel comfortable with taking the next step; he acquired the ability to turn her into a “fast” girl so to speak.


    They were too cool to run my race/you kept the pace with a smile on ya face

    The other dudes were not used to waiting (they were so cool so they didn’t have to) he was fine with waiting.


    But first you took me around, introduced me to your family and friends,
    And told them how that once we met, that we would never lose...

    He made it known to his people that he was serious about her.

    How's it feel to win it

    This line makes me think she could be talking about her virginity.

    You were runnin' me, runnin' me down (running),
    Tellin' me, tellin' me "Wait" (tellin' me, tellin' me "Wait"...);
    Running me down and telling me you were never gonna let go is the way you got me...

    Again, he stuck it out when the others couldn’t/wouldn’t until he got her and that’s how she decided he was the one.
