Charted: 7 4
  • We found each other
    I helped you out of a broken place
    You gave me comfort
    But falling for you was my mistake

    I put you on top, I put you on top
    I claimed you so proud and openly
    And when times were rough, when times were rough
    I made sure I held you close to me

    So call out my name (call out my name)
    Call out my name when I kiss you so gently
    I want you to stay (I want you to stay)
    I want you to stay, even though you don't want me
    Girl, why can't you wait? (Why can't you wait, baby?)
    Girl, why can't you wait 'til I fall out of love?
    Won't you call out my name? (Call out my name)
    Girl, call out my name, and I'll be on my way and
    I'll be on my

    I said I didn't feel nothing baby, but I lied
    I almost cut a piece of myself for your life
    Guess I was just another pit stop
    'Til you made up your mind
    You just wasted my time

    You're on top, I put you on top
    I claimed you so proud and openly, babe
    And when times were rough, when times were rough
    I made sure I held you close to me

    So call out my name (call out my name, baby)
    So call out my name when I kiss you
    So gently, I want you to stay (I want you to stay)
    I want you to stay even though you don't want me
    Girl, why can't you wait? (Girl, why can't you wait 'til I-)
    Girl, why can't you wait 'til I fall out of loving?
    Babe, call out my name (say call out my name, baby)
    Girl, call out my name, and I'll be on my way, girl
    I'll be on my

    On my way, all the way
    On my way, all the way, ooh
    On my way, on my way, on my way
    On my way, on my way, on my way
    (On my)
