Verse:
Yo, yo, yo
This could be your welcome to the truth
And though I ain’t no prophet I wear locs like Jesus and Mohamed
My mind’s twisted off the drama and the violence
Take that mean green off your brain
Then you’ll know what time it is
Ha, look open up your eyes
Every body got a soul in it and I realize
That your body and them bones in it constant disguise
Real emotions with false feeling tell me why
I struggle less even when I’m just blessed with your presence
I think it’s part of your essence
And you can see through my flesh to the root of my being
Yeah, I must confess
That you the bestest
And you the baddest
The number one I ever had
And you my life and you do me right
What else could I want but a queen by my side, aaight

Chorus:
We could run the whole damn city
You my number one in the spotlight
Oh, and I guess
Love it come in threes
Ooh my number one, me and the moonlight
Yeah, break me down, come on
Set my soul on fire
Ignite my body with desire in the nighttime
Or you can wander down that lonely country road
And find my soul at the crossroads

Verse:
Yeah, I bet you’ll find me breakin’
From these same contemplations in the end
So heavy like
The foundation of this broken man can’t withstand
‘Cause you give me a reason to keep breathin’
And on my own I would die not breathin’
Let me recite now my life’s full teachin’
A battle set in stone concretin’
Yeah, yeah
But you always take me higher
Let’s chill on the moon
And watch earth float by while I sing a tune to you
And I would wish on a star
And make sure anywhere, anywhere we go
You ain’t buyin’ ‘cause I got the dough

Chorus:
See, we could run the whole damn city
You my number one in the spotlight
Oh, and I guess
Love it come in threes
Ooh my number one, me and the moonlight
Yeah, break me down, come on
Set my soul on fire
Ignite my body with desire in the nighttime
Or you can wander down that lonely country road
And find my soul at the crossroads

Hook:
Erase my pride
I guess that’s why I decided to lay it down for you
I come to the conclusion that
The way you make me feel, oh it is the truth
Your infectious eyes
I guess that’s why I decided to lay it down for you and I
I come to the conclusion I find
Everything in the past, oh it was a lie
Ain’t no stopping you and I no

Chorus:
‘cause we could run the whole damn city
You my number one in the spotlight
Oh, and I guess
Love it come in threes
Ooh my number one, me and the moonlight
Yeah, break me down, come on
Set my soul on fire
Ignite my body with desire in the nighttime
Or you can wander down that lonely country road
And find my soul at the crossroads
