lyrics

i only think of you on two, two
day and night think of you, you
so clever how you do, do
always think of you on two

i only think of you on two, two
day and night think of you, you
so clever how you do, do
always think of you on two

always think of you on two

no i never felt a love like
and i never felt a kiss like
never been on the grind like this
to express how your lovelight shines
in the midst of whatever
b in the middle
cuz you an answer clever
question unasked ever
we stand ready with fate's hand unmasked
on a path with a test to pass
good things to be amassed
with a bit of marathon and a 40 yard-dash
let me show you how a real love lasts
God willing, i'ma be that
i'ma be that
God willing, i'ma be that
God willing, i'ma be that

every day and night, two occasions
two times when i think of you
wrote the deele and babyface
scribbled on your wall and its still true
meant it to the fullest
yea, i admit it
meant it through and through
don't question blessings
and don't outthink your love
we gon make it if we really give a try
we gon make it if we really wanna
you can be my lioness
i'ma be the hunter
both got manes, you gon be my main squeeze
and you're my favorite dream

what's left to say?
nothing clever, whatever
that's ok
sometimes it's better that way

i only think of you on two, two
day and night think of you, you
so clever how you do, do
always think of you on two

i only think of you on two, two
day and night think of you, you
so clever how you do, do
always think of you on two

always think of you on two

i sit back and read things wrote by you
struck by how i fall in love with
the beauty of your phrases
how you naturally string together words
and paint pictures in the simplest of sentences, vividly
one of the most natural poets i've ever spoken with
you speak in a language and rhythm my heart wants to learn, fluently
i wanna study your pauses and mannerisms
i quote you rumi and neruda but you're not impressed
skeptical of the romantic idealist
maybe something like a modern day cyrano
florintino ariza with magical realist flow
you call me a cassanova with your sly smile and brush it off
counter with cafavy, keats, and maya angelou
your library just another reason feeling you

i only think of you on two
day and night when i think of you
babyface and the deele
scribbled on your wall and its still true
meant it to the fullest
yea, i admit it
meant it through and through

i don't even know what to say
nothing clever, whatever
that's ok
sometimes it's better that way

i only think of you on two, two
day and night think of you, you
so clever how you do, do
always think of you on two

i only think of you on two, two
day and night think of you, you
so clever how you do, do
always think of you on two

always think of you on two

always think of you on two
always think of you on two

always think of you on two
day and night when i think of you
nothing clever
