"When Doves Cry" as written by Timothy Mosley and Elgin B. Lumpkin....
Dig if you will the picture
Of you and I engaged in a kiss
The sweat of your body covers G
Can you my darling
Can you picture this?

Dream if you can a courtyard
An ocean of violets in bloom
A nigga like me strikes curious poses
They feel the heat
The heat between me and you

How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world that's so cold?
Maybe I'm just too demanding
Maybe I'm just like my father, too bold
Maybe I'm just like my mother
She's never satisfied (She's never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry

Touch if you will my stomach
Feel how it trembles inside
Now you've got the butterflies all tied up
Don't make me chase
Even doves have pride

How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world so cold? (World so cold)
Maybe I'm just too demanding
Maybe I'm just like my father, too bold
Maybe I'm just like my mother
She's never satisfied (She's never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry

How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in world that's so cold
Maybe I'm just too demanding (Maybe, maybe I'm like my father)
Maybe I'm just like my mother (Maybe I'm just like my mother)
She's never satisfied (She's never, never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other (Why do we scream, why)
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry

Maybe I'm just like my mother
She's never satisfied (She's never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other (Why do we scream at each other)
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry
