  • Yea yea
    Oh oh
    Yea yea
    Oh oh
    Yea

    I made the mark on February 1st
    Between me and you you can call it birth
    The beginning of our universe
    Remind me of Alicia keys verse
    I'm falling for you
    I wish I had an opportunity to not do
    What I did to hurt you
    Now I'm here living with regrets

    I know that it was my fault,
    I know that I got caught,
    So please don't loose your thoughts
    Of me loving you and you loving me
    I'm on the highway swerving
    I ain't drunk but I'm about to hit the curb'n
    Looking at the calendar getting nervous
    Just a few more days to the first soul

    This the day it all began
    One place that it came together
    More than a ring or a tattoo
    Wish your birthmark that reminds of you
    So let's get on an airplane
    Go back to where we began
    To that point which is days apart
    That stamp right next to your heart
    To your heart

    Get the calendar go to August 3rd first words
    Stay we heard our first words
    First argument gotta let it go
    Cause it could possibly affect what our future holds
    Flipping pages now famous thinking back I aint seen you in ages
    Wishing that I could of made it less painless
    Brings me back right back to the same as

    I know that it was my fault,
    I know that I got caught,
    So please don't loose your thoughts
    Of me loving you and you loving me
    I'm on the highway swerving
    I ain't drunk but I'm about to hit the curb'n
    Looking at the calendar getting nervous
    Just a few more days to the first soul

    This the day it all began
    One place that it came together
    More than a ring or a tattoo
    Wish your birthmark that reminds of you
    So let's get on an airplane
    Go back to where we began
    To that point which is days apart
    That stamp right next to your heart
    To your heart

    January February March April May
    June July August is just another day,
    September October November trying to find a way
    In December to mark my calendar to meet again
    If only we can go to that place where me and you know,
    There's no faith fronting cheating even lying,
    The time has come where we stand face to face

    This the day it all began
    One place that it came together
    More than a ring or a tattoo
    Wish your birthmark that reminds of you
    So let's get on an airplane
    Go back to where we began
    To that point which is days apart
    That stamp right next to your heart
    To your heart

    That step right next to your heart

    To your heart

    That step right next to your heart Writer/s: ALIAUNE THIAM, GIORGIO TUINFORT, N. FISHER, NOEL FISHER
