Ooh, I love you.
So I sit & write sometimes with a very clever mind
To say what's in my heart,
but all those lines all fall apart before.


It's such an old cliche but paints a perfect picture.
I know I'm busy a lot
I'm really trying to work this with ya
Now I ain't the sappy type, but listen I'm a set it straight
I know I'm missing birthdays and other important dates, but
This music got my hands tied, and it keeps getting tighter
I know it'll pay off, they dark days will seem brighter
It really ain't that bad
but I see where you're coming from
I'm gone by the weeks, you gotta stay home to make ends meet
You wake up at six, I sleep in til 10 o'clock
You work a 9 to 5 and I stay home without a job
And I can see why that pisses you off & pushes your buttons
But you can't forget girl I ain't doing this for nothing
Sometimes I'd rather go out than make beats and write rhymes
But I've got to take advantage,
take a chance in this lifetime
I hope you understand that, I know you wait impatiently
but give me a little time, I'll make it worth your while guaranteed.
So listen for a minute...

[hook]
Ooh, I love you.
So I sit & write sometimes with a very clever mind
To say what's in my heart,
but all those lines all fall apart before.

Now step in my shoes and see this from my view
got 10 years of paying dues, if I succeed so do you
if I'm rich then so are you and I know that ain't important
but I know that you support me & everything that I'm recording
Well we all need assurance, ain't no shame in admitting it
Soon you'll have a ring sliding down over your fingertips
I know you're waiting, and I ain't the most romantic
But I know what I have and I ain't taking that for granted
And patience is a virtue that I know most of us lack
5 years together, that's longer than most marriages last
so please bear with me 'cause through thick and thin
I'm just trying to build a foundation
I just hope you're listening
And I respect you that's why I never fuck hoes on tour
Treat you like I should but I know sometimes you get ignored
And I spend too much time hanging with Mary Jane
worrying with hip hop shits a scary game
Rappers are a dime a dozen, and you get used up
then fans fade away, turn on you and tell you "you suck"
But I know you'll be here still with me when it's through
So don't ever think I'll put this music shit ahead of you, and that's what's real....

[hook]
Ooh, I love you.
So I sit & write sometimes with a very clever mind
To say what's in my heart,
but all those lines all fall apart before.
