  • (These words are my own, yeah yeah yeah)

    Threw some chords together
    The combination D.E.F
    It's who I am it's what I do
    And I was gonna lay it down for you

    I'm trying to focus my attention
    But I feel so A.D.D
    I need some help some inspiration
    But it's not coming easily

    Tryn'a find the magic
    Tryn'a write a classic
    Don't you know, don't you know, don't you know?
    Wastebin full of paper
    Clever rhymes, see ya later

    These words are my own
    From my heart flown
    I love you I love you
    I love you I love you!
    There's no other way
    To better say
    I love you, I love you

    Read some Byron, Shelly, and Keats
    Recited it over a Hip Hop beat
    I'm having trouble saying what I mean
    With dead poets and drum machines

    You know I had some studio time booked
    But I couldn't find the killa hook
    Now you've gone and raised the bar
    Right up (this is on a separate line!)
    Nothing I write is ever good enough

    These words are my own
    From my heart flown
    I love you I love you
    I love you I love you!
    There's no other way
    To better say
    I love you, I love you

    These words are my own
    From my heart flown
    I love you I love you
    I love you I love you!
    There's no other way
    To better say
    I love you, I love you (love you)

    I'm getting of my stage
    The curtains pull away
    No hyperbole to hide behind
    My naked sole's expose

    Woah oh oh oh (etc etc etc)

    Tryn'a find the magic
    Tryn'a write a classic
    Don't you know, don't you know, don't you know?
    Wastebin full of paper
    Clever rhymes, see ya later

    These words are my own
    From my heart flown
    I love you I love you
    I love you I love you!
    There's no other way
    To better say
    I love you, I love you (love you)

    These words are my own
    From my heart flown
    They're from my heart
    I love you I love you
    I love you I love you!
    There's no other way
    To better say
    I love you, I love you (love you)

    These words are my own
    They're from my heart
    I love you I love you
    That's all I got to say
    Can't think of a better way
    That's all I got to say
    I love you is that OK? Writer/s: ANDREW MARCUS FRAMPTON, NATASHA BEDINGFIELD, STEPHEN ALAN KIPNER, WAYNE WILKINS
