Like I Love You

Album: Justified (2002)
Charted: 2 11
  • Just something about you
    The way I'm lookin' at you whatever
    You keep lookin' at me
    You gettin' scared now, right?
    Don't fear me baby, it's just destiny
    It feel good right?
    Listen

    I kind of noticed, something wasn't right
    From your colorful face
    It's kind of weird to me
    Since you're so fine
    If it's up to me your face will change

    If you smile then that should set the tone
    Just be limber
    And if you let go the music should groove your bones
    Just remember
    Sing this song with me

    Ain't nobody love you like I love you
    You're a good girl and that's what makes me trust ya (hey!)
    Late at night I talk to you
    You will know the difference when I touch you

    See people are so phony
    Nosy 'cause they're lonely
    Aren't you sick of the same thing?
    They say so and so was dating
    Love you or they're hatin'
    When it doesn't matter anyway
    'Cause we're here tonight

    If you smile then that should set the tone
    Just be limber, baby
    And if you let go the music should groove your bones
    Baby just remember
    Sing this song with me

    Ain't nobody love you like I love you
    You're a good girl and that's what makes me trust ya (hey!)
    Late at night I talk to you
    You will know the difference when I touch you

    Yeah, you know I can make ya happy
    I could change your life
    If you give me that chance to be your man
    I won't let you down baby
    If you give me that chance to be your man
    Here baby, put on my jacket
    And then

    Maybe we'll fly the night away (I just wanna love you baby)
    Girl (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
    Maybe we'll fly the night away (I just wanna love you baby)
    Girl

    Ma, what chu wanna do?
    I'm in front of you
    Grab a friend see, I can have fun with two
    Or me and you put on a stage show
    In the mall kids ask "how the chain glow?"
    Point to her they say, "wow, it's the same glow"
    Point to me I say, "yeah, it's the same dough"
    We the same type, you my a alike
    You have me sleepin in the same bed every night

    Go ride wit me you deservin' the best
    Take a few shots let it burn in your chest
    We could ride down pumpin N.E.R.D. in the deck
    Funny how a few words turn into sex
    Play number 3, joint called "Brain" (I just love your, brain)
    Ma, took a hint, make me swerve in the lane
    The name Malicious and I burn every track
    Clipse and J. Timberlake, now how heavy is that?

    Maybe we'll fly the night away (I just wanna love you baby)
    Girl (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
    Maybe we'll fly the night away (I just wanna love you baby)
    Girl

    Ain't nobody love you like I love you
    You're a good girl and that's what makes me trust ya (hey!)
    Late at night I talk to you
    You will know the difference when I

    Break it down
    You know, I used to dream about this when I was a little boy
    I never thought it would end up this way, drums (hey!)
    It's kind of special right? yeah
    You know, you think about it
    Sometimes people, just destined
    Destined to do what they do
    And that's what it is
    Now everybody dance

  • Amber from Allegan, MiIn the Barbara Walters interview, it suggests that the lyrics "You're a good girl and that's what makes me trust you" is a stab at Britney Spears.
