People come and go, they run yo' show,
Til they cut and go, there's one thing I know,
You're the one for me, never done with me,
I won't part from thee, stay with me my love

Seven innings and I'm far from finished,
Seven revisions and yet the heart won't diminish
Seven hours when I'm in the heart of business,
Then I'm en route to the place my heart does liveth,

Seven syllables, we are indivisible,
For the more I get you with the noodle and the physical,
This is more than a dutiful remittance,
Or the doing of the mister, who's pursuing of the kittens.

Afford me this poetry, you shot from my dalience,
Is this word extravagance I spend upon you,
But if it wasn't for your simple miracles,
I find myself adrift in an ocean of faceless indulgence

I'm first to let the gimmicks of commercial balladry
Or ritual gigolos rehearse their gallantry,
Is he livin' right? Wrote a rhyme for his wife.
Bass drum to mic, it's the time of his life, there it is.

People come and go, then they run yo' show,
Til they cut and go, there's one thing I know,
You're the one for me, never done with me,
I won't part from thee, stay with me my love

Someone who is lookin' now (make you love?)
In the law of attraction (make you love?)
Now our purpose is serious, c'mon, (make you love?)
This is greater than the two of us (make you love?)

And you were right, baby, right from the start,
I really thought cha' crazy but you stole my heart,
And I will be there, never will I leave there,
My words sincere, boy I am a lucky lady,
I got the bestest man around, he keep his ring on
and his two feet on the ground

Oh yeah.

People come and go, then they run yo' show,
Til they cut and go, there's one thing I know,
You're the one for me, never done with me,
I won't part from thee, stay with me my love
