Where I Wanna Be

Album: Where I Wanna Be (1999)
Charted: 29
  • I said I left my baby girl a message
    Saying I won't be coming home
    I'd rather be alone
    She doesn't fully understand me
    That I'd rather leave than to cheat
    If she give me some time
    I can be the man she needs
    But there's a lot of lust inside of me
    And we've been together since our teenage years
    I really don't mean to hurt her but I need some time
    To be alone

    But when you love someone
    You just don't treat them bad
    Oh how I feel so sad
    Now that I want to leave
    She's crying her heart to me
    How could you let this be?
    I just need time to see
    Where I want to be
    Where I want to be

    Sweet little do-dee-do-dee
    I don't mean to hurt you baby, oh no
    Never did I imagine
    That you would play a major part
    In a decision that's so hard
    Do I leave, do I stay, do I go
    I think about my life and what matters to me the most
    Girl the love that we share is real
    But in time your heart will heal
    I'm not saying I'm gone
    But I have to find what life is like
    Without you

    But when you love someone
    You just don't treat them bad
    Oh how I feel so sad
    Now that I want to leave
    She's crying her heart to me
    How could you let this be?
    I just need time to see
    Where I want to be
    Where I want to be

    Sweet little do-dee-do-dee
    I don't mean to hurt you baby

    See when you love someone
    You just don't treat them bad
    Oh how I feel so sad
    Now that I want to leave
    She's crying her heart to me
    How could you let this be?
    I just need time to see
    Where I want to be

    See when you love someone
    You just don't treat them bad
    Oh how I feel so sad
    Now that I want to leave
    She's crying her heart to me
    How could you let this be?
    I just need time to see
    Where I want to be

    See when you love someone
    You just don't treat them bad
    Oh how I feel so sad
    Now that I want to leave
    She's crying her heart to me
    How could you let this be?
    I just need time to see
    Where I want to be

    Where I want to be
