  • I've been watching you from a far
    For as long as I can remember
    You're all a real man could need
    And could ever ask for
    This is more than a crush
    Yeah

    It was Harlem at the ruckus
    I saw you with your man, a smiling, huh
    A coach bag in your hand
    I was laying in the coupe with my hat turned back
    We caught eyes for a moment and that was that

    So I skated off as you strolled off
    Looking at your legs, god damn, they look so soft (so fine)
    I gotta take ya from your man, that's my mission
    If his love is real he's got to handle competition
    You only knew him five months, (that's right)
    Besides he drinks too much, and smokes too many blunts

    And I'll be working out everyday thinkin' about you
    Looking at my own eyes in the rear view
    Catching flashbacks of our eye contact
    Wish I could lay you on your stomach and caress your back
    I would hold you in my arms and ease your fears
    I can't believe it, I ain't had a crush in years

    [Chorus]
    Hey lover, hey lover
    This is more than a crush
    Hey lover, hey lover
    This is more than a crush, lover
    Hey lover, this is more than a crush
    Hey lover, hey lover
    This is more than a crush

    I see you at the bus stop waiting every day
    Your man must think it's safe for you to travel that way
    And I don't want to violate your relationship
    So I'll lay back in the cut with a crush that's a trip

    Still he can't stop me from having daydreams
    Tongue'n you down with uh, vanilla ice cream
    Kissing on your thighs in the moonlight
    Searching you body with my tongue girl all night

    I wonder one day could it be, (how I wonder)
    Simple dreams could turn into reality
    Our love would come down so naturally
    We would walk down the aisle of destiny

    Would your man get his hustle on, got your type scared
    Break your off a little chump change to do your hair
    It seems to be enough to satisfy your needs
    But there's a deeper level if you follow our lead, hey lover

    [Chorus]

    Last week I saw ya at the mall
    Standing at the pay phone about to make a call
    I had a vision it was me on the other end
    Telling you come by and then you walked in

    I touched you gently with my hands
    We talked about traveling the distant lands
    Escaping all the madness out here in the world
    Becoming my wife no longer my girl

    Then you let your dress fall down to the floor (oh yeah)
    I kissed you softly and you yearned for more
    We experienced pleasure unparalleled
    Into an ocean of love we both fell

    Swimming in the timeless currents of pure bliss
    Fantasies interchanging with each kiss
    Undying passion unites our souls
    Together we swim until the point of no control

    But, it's a fantasy, you won't come true
    We never even spoke and your man swears he love you
    So, I'm gonna keep all these feelings aside, (that's right)
    Keep my dreams alive until the right time

    [Chorus]


    Ain't nothing like a fantasy kid
    Words up
    Hey lover, hey lover, hey lover, this is more than a crush
    Hey lover, hey lover, hey lover, this is more than a crush
    Hey lover, hey lover, hey lover, this is more than a crush
    Hey lover, hey lover, hey lover, this is more than a crush
