I’ll make you know I am your man

You’re the one, that I will love eternally

We learn that giving we’ll always receive

And I know that our love will be all it can be, ooh this time

Oh, I guess it’s one of those things

A man just has to do

But I promise

It’ll work out for the better, baby

Trust me

(I gotta)

Like being single or just alone

To get into myself

Love ain’t easy

Making me crazy

Games that we play

Sometimes the rules have to change

I don’t wanna treat her cruel

But I like honesty

So what am I gonna do?

I guess I’ll do what I gotta do

And break her heart

I don’t wanna see her cry

But it’s hard to live a lie

So I gotta do what I gotta do

And break her heart

Though I love the girl

I know that

The best thing is for us to be apart

(Be apart, baby)

I gotta

Any good relationships starts

Inside of a happy man

Then she can only respect me

Even if we don’t agree

But I like honesty, baby

So what am I gonna do?

Oh, I’ve gotta do what I gotta do

And break her heart

Ralph Tresvant Strange Emotions

Go ahead and talk about the past,

Over and over again

I got me a good shot, before the wrong shit was done for the last two years

I think we’re really gonna last.

Even though we’re not even friends

She told me fuck you, I called the b’s and then we made love

Girl, your love’s got me on a rollercoaster,

Up and down, feeling strange emotions

No surprise crazy situations happen all the time

Cause there’s no devotion

Here goes another argument over something that don’t even matter

Chick, harras me, your tryin’ to blast me because you know I wanna come up

I guess it’s the crazy things we do, that keeps us so in love

Like when we argue, before it’s over, you bending over

Girl, your love’s got me on a rollercoaster,

Up and down, feeling strange emotions

No surprise crazy situations happen all the time

Because there’s no devotion

Girl, your love’s got me on a rollercoaster,

Up and down, feeling strange emotions

No surprise crazy situations happen all the time

Because there’s no devotion

I heard you talking on the phone, to your friend the other day

About some cat that you knew from while back

And you was wondering what he’s doing now

See I still have friends from back in the day

Cause I knew where this would lead

She told me fuck you, I told her that’s cool

Then we made love

Girl, your love’s got me on a rollercoaster,

Up and down, feeling strange emotions

No surprise, crazy situations happen all the time

Because there’s no devotion

Girl, your love’s got me on a rollercoaster,

Up and down, feeling strange emotions

No surprise, crazy situations happen all the time

Because there’s no devotion

Girl, your love’s got me on a rollercoaster,

Up and down, feeling strange emotions

No surprise, crazy situations happen all the time

Because there’s no devotion

She dropped into my heart

At a funny time

I met her once or twice

‘Cause I almost lost my mind

Just knowing I had to

The clue was that I

I wasn’t really happy

So I had to sit down and check myself

Now here’s the little story

When I met this girl (who we clicked so good)

She sparked up all my days when I thought that no one could

She had all the right things (and she touched all the right places)
