I wanna love you like Rythym n Blues
Cus I wanna Usher in a new era
An era honest and true
For My Boo, thats you, and these are my Confessions Part 2
Now, listen, see
I wanna hand you the Alicia Keys to my heart
And you can put them in position and start the Remix to Ignition
Now, listen, see
Cus you could be my princess
And I could be your Brian McKnight
If that's alright with you
If you wanna give us a try
Then I promise you'll never have One Last Cry and if you wanna know why
Then, listen, see
Now, I am not your average Joe cus I Wanna Know  what turns you on and what turns you off
Because if you like this, then maybe I could be your light switch
Now, listen, see
Everytime Time I Close My Eyes, I realize that it is your Babyface that cannot be replaced
And if I may, I've hoped and prayed that maybe one day, we'd might be able to kick it to some Michael Buble
Now, listen, see
I'm not pressure you, neither am I trying to front
We could just be friends if you want
Or we could mix some Mary J. Blige with some Mary Jane blunts
And get high off of Rnb
Cus When I See You Smile incandescently
You feed me a meaning of self-believing
A feeling so relieving
Because I feel the need to become a better human being
Now, listen, see
Like SWV, I, too, get Weak in the knees
But not weak enough to get on my knees
I Aint Too Proud to Beg and plead
For your sympathy
Because, see, I can simply resist these
Temptations, was it Just My Imagination
Or is this fixation just my abberation or is it mutual admiration?
Because I've prayed for the latter, but that doesn't matter, as long as you're flattered
Now, in all seriousness,
I really need to you to listen to this
Rnb is the essence and embodiment of love
I still remember the feeling I felt
The first day my mother and father played
Marvin Gaye and Donnie Hathaway
In the same day for a day straight
And The Way You Make Me Feel feels a similar way
So, for the last time, I ask you to listen.
If you should Let Me Love You,
Then I'll listen to you like Rythym n Blues
