Written By: Lamar Smith; Nathaniel Marshall

I don’t know what makes me this way (this way)
All I ever wanna do is love you (love you)
Sometimes I drive you crazy (crazy)
And some things I say may hurt you but (hurt you)
I’m just a fool I’m just a man (just a fool)
I don’t know how to change who I am (just a man, a man, a man)
I’m just a fool I’m just a man
I don’t know how to change who I am

[Vs 1]
If I could stop thinking other girls were pretty
Or ignore them when they flirt with me
But you know it won’t go nowhere
I wanna be with you when I got no more hair
My lungs no more air despite flaws
Tight like a pair of white draws be fitting on me
If your girls could stop telling you that they kissing on me
Yea you see them hitting on me but I’m only being polite
You the only woman that I’m gone be seeing tonight
And you the only one I see in my life
If I stopped lying then you’d stop spying
And I ain’t denying that I aint perfect but I’m trying
And If I did the things that he did then you wouldn’t want me
And he’d be the one you’d be with
Love is real as the stories that I tell in the booth
If only you’d believe me when I’m telling the truth



Wanna be honest as I speak yo you the one that I really need so
This letter is a hit or a Shaq from the free throw
Me though I’m learning how to keep your
Heart carefully I been growing from a chico
Need to be that change you believe in see and
I’m trying to be with you ‘til my breathing ceasing
Love for eternity I’m seeking we can
Achieve that fact like fraternities I be in
I’ve not been the best many women I’ve used
But you want a new note different pitch I like blues
Different hues and I’m through playing you cheap so
The pimp in me is feeling like his older brother’s Tito
See so this is it in the future picture us
Consider you the wings my Icarus
Be with me till I fall down happy when you call now
Know we’ll be together ‘til my bodies all ground


I’m stupid maybe this is proven true but
My music maybe you’ll be grooving too
Call you on the phone pray I’m never loosing you
A rolling stone but you’re the goal I’m moving too
My music maybe you’ll be grooving too
Call you on the phone pray I’m never loosing you
A rolling stone but you’re the goal I’m moving too
