"Gotta Be There" as written by Michael A. Chesser, Adam M. Gibbs, Travis Demond Cherry, Arthur Ross, Leon Ware and Crystal Johnson....
(I wanna be where you are)
(Could it be I stayed away too long)
(I wanna be where you are)
(Could it be I stayed away too long)

I remember I said we should split
Had a lot goin' on and you weren't part of it
You tryin' to reason with me I admit
But I did
And now I'm walkin' around so so sick
And now I'm thinkin' for you that's a fact
Got me missin' you like LA misses Shaq
What I gotta do
On my mission to get you back
'Cause I'm just that way without you
Baby baby I

Really didn't mean it
When I said it, I'll repeat it
I was trippin' flippin' out it was nothin'
I was on a whole other level
Now I got it all together
I was sick, but now I'm better

I was trying to push you away
Really wanted you to stay
Didn't know that was the case
It was just plain crazy 'cause around here lately
Been thinkin' about nothing but my baby

If you're in Houston
hosted in Atlanta
Chillin' in New York
Somewhere out in Puerto Rico
If you're in Chicago
Hangin' out in the MIA
Maybe you can be in LA
I just wanna be your lady

(I wanna be where you are)
(Could it be I stayed away too long)
(I wanna be where you are)
(Could it be I stayed away too long)

What's gone is gone
And I wanna take it back
I'm not livin' in the past
But now I want you back
Gotta get you, gotta get you here
I been looking for you everywhere
Everywhere, baby
I'd apologize 1000 times to you
if I could prove (prove)
Baby I'm wrong and out of breath
I been around the world tryin' to get to you

Really didn't mean it
When I said it, I'll repeat it
I was trippin' flippin' out It was nothin'
I was on a whole other level
Now I got it all together
I was sick, but now I'm better

I was trying to push you away
Really wanted you to stay
Didn't know that was the case
It was just plain crazy 'cause around here lately
Been thinkin' about nothing but my baby

If you're in Houston
hosted in Atlanta
Chillin' in New York
Somewhere out in Puerto Rico
If you're in Chicago
Hangin' out in the MIA
Maybe you can be in LA
I just wanna be your lady

(I wanna be where you are)
(Could it be I stayed away too long)
(Oh oh oh oh)
(Come back to me)
(Could it be I stayed away too long)

If you're in Houston
hosted in Atlanta
Chillin' in New York
Somewhere out in Puerto Rico
If you're in Chicago
Hangin' out in the MIA
Maybe you can be in LA
I just wanna be your lady

If you're in Houston
hosted in Atlanta
Chillin' in New York
Somewhere out in Puerto Rico
If you're in Chicago
Hangin' out in the MIA
Maybe you can be in LA
I just wanna be your lady

(I wanna be where you are)
