  • Seems like ever since
    The first day we met
    There is no one else I think of more than you
    I can't seem to forget
    Can't get you out my head
    'Cause the verdicts in
    I'm crazy over you
    How can one be down?
    Tell me where to start
    'Cause every time you smile
    I feel tremors in my heart
    I have but one concern
    How can I get with you?
    'Til my day comes here's what I'm gon' do

    Be sitting up in my room
    Back here thinking 'bout you
    I must confess I'm a mess for you
    Be sitting up in my room
    Back here thinking 'bout you
    I'm just a mess with a thing for you

    Pray that you'll invest
    In my happiness
    All it takes is just one simple call from you
    Turn my heart around
    If I'm making ground
    Pretty baby please tell me if I'm getting through
    Tell me what is up
    You see I need to know
    Tell me if I'm far or if I'm getting close
    I have but one concern
    And one concern is you
    'Til I'm with you here's what I'm gon' do

    Be sitting up in my room
    Back here thinking 'bout you
    I must confess I'm a mess for you
    Be sitting up in my room
    Back here thinking 'bout you
    I'm just a mess with a thing for you

    Ooh whoa, oh yeah, oh yeah
    Hmm, oh, oh, oh

    How can one be down?
    Tell me where to start
    'Cause every time you smile
    I feel tremors in my heart
    I have but one concern
    How can I get with you?
    'Til my day comes here's what I'm gonna do

    Be sitting up in my room
    Back here thinking 'bout you
    I must confess I'm a mess for you
    Be sitting up in my room
    Back here thinking 'bout you
    I'm just a mess with a thing for you

    Be sitting up in my room
    Back here thinking 'bout you
    I must confess I'm a mess for you
    Be sitting up in my room
    Back here thinking 'bout you
    I'm just a mess with a thing for you

    Be sitting up in my room
    Back here thinking 'bout you
    I must confess I'm a mess for you
    Be sitting up in my room
    Back here thinking 'bout you
    I'm just a mess with a thing for you

    Be sitting up in my room
    Back here thinking 'bout you
    I must confess I'm a mess for you
    Be sitting up in my room
    Back here thinking 'bout you
    I'm just a mess with a thing for you

    Be sitting up in my room
    Back here thinking 'bout you
    I must confess I'm a mess for you
