  • Sometimes, you love too hard
    Sometimes, you go too far
    Now I won't want you if you need me
    Real things do not come easy, no

    Never been your average girl
    So take time with me, take time
    Baby, talk to me with some action
    We can find a place for your passion, oh

    Cool down, simmer
    Cool now, please me
    Cool now, sinner
    Cool down, love
    Cool now, simmer
    Cool now, please me
    Cool now, sinner
    Cool down, love
    Cool now, simmer
    Cool now, please me
    Cool now, sinner
    Cool down, love, love

    Sometimes, I want you close
    Sometimes, I want my space
    Just know I'm gonna call if I need you
    It's not my job to please you, no

    Never been your average girl
    So take time with me, take time
    Baby, talk to me with some action
    Think I got a place for your passion, oh

    Cool down, simmer
    Cool now, please me
    Cool now, sinner
    Cool down, love
    Cool now, simmer
    Cool now, please me
    Cool now, simmer, simmer
    Boy, you make it too hard for me to stay here
    Boy, you're making it hard for me to be your love, love
    So cool now, simmer, simmer

    Baby, don't make me tell you this
    I won't waste no time, I'll be proceeding quick
    The way you're moving lately got me feeling sick
    Like say you've forgotten who you're dealing with
    Man, ah real bread winner, me work nonstop
    You no cook no dinner when I come back
    Something wrong with ya, come out from that
    If me walk and leave ya, me nah come back
    (Cool down, simmer)

    You're falling, but you don't wanna fall too hard
    You're falling, but you don't wanna fall apart
    'Cause it might break if I give you my heart
    And you hold on too hard (too hard, too hard)

    So cool down, simmer, simmer (simmer, simmer)
    Cool down, simmer
    Cool now, please me
    Cool now, sinner
    Cool down, love
    Cool now, simmer
    Cool now, please me
    Cool now, simmer, simmer (si-si-simmer)
    Boy, you make it too hot for me to stay here
    Boy, you're making it hard for me to be your love, love

    (Simmer, simmer)
