  • Check this out
    And a five, six, seven, eight
    Well I never meant to be the greatest
    I only ever want to be your baby
    Life is perfect in your arms
    Don't ever let me go
    To go anywhere

    Should I stay, stay away?
    I know you ain't out there tryin' to be my baby
    God help us, help us all
    Don't ever let me down
    You're always doing that

    God dan, uh huh
    Alright, uh huh, uh huh

    Should I stay, stay awake?
    I know you ain't out there tryin' to be my baby
    Life is perfect in your soul
    Don't ever let me go
    I can be your one and only

    Well, I never meant to be the greatest
    I know you ain't out there tryin' to be my baby
    Come on love me come on
    God, bring his ass on home
    If you can do anything, yeah Writer/s: Brittany Amber Howard, Heath Allen Fogg, Steven William Johnson, Zachary Riley Cockrell
