  • I heard about you and your other situation
    Through word of mouth
    They made it seem so complicated
    Is it over now?
    Or did you just say it 'cause you're anxious?
    To get closer now
    'Cause I want you to be all over me

    Truthfully (truthfully)
    Honestly (honestly)
    I need, I need, I need to believe
    I wanna let go, but I don't really know
    I heard you got a girlfriend
    Say it ain't so, you ain't on the low
    I don't think I could handle it
    I wanna go to another level with you

    But before I do
    I wanna know 'fore I go there with you
    Oh yeah, so tell me you're through
    I need to know 'fore I go there with you

    I heard about, heard all about your reputation
    You know that word gets around
    Tell me you got an explanation
    'Cause I need to know
    Is it nothing?
    Is it something?
    Oh, just keep it real with me

    Truthfully (truthfully)
    Honestly (honestly)
    I need, I need, I need to believe
    I wanna let go, but I don't really know
    I heard you got a girlfriend
    Say it ain't so, you ain't on the low
    I don't think I could handle it
    I wanna go to another level with you

    But before I do
    I wanna know 'fore I go there with you
    So tell me you're through
    I need to know 'fore I go there with you

    It's unfair, 'cause baby, in my mind, oh
    We should be together, whoa
    I wanna let go, but I don't really know
    I heard you got a girlfriend
    I'm tryna go to another level with you

    But before I do
    I wanna know 'fore I go there with you
    So tell me you're through
    I need to know 'fore I go there with you

    Yeah
    Yeah, yeah
    Yeah, yeah Writer/s: Amber Streeter, Bernard Harvey, Ernie Isley, Felisha King, Jeremy Reeves, Jonathan Yip, Kelly O Isley, Marvin Isley, Micah Powell, Ray Charles Ii Mccullough, Ray Romulus, Ronald Isley, Rudolph Isley
