First date, broke all those first date don’ts
Politics religion ex’s wills and won’ts
Still no red flag ever did I see
The perfect little puzzle piece she seemed to me
Brown curls, fair skin, diamond eyes
Bangin’ body when she walked by left me mesmerized
 
She grabbed my arm in the movie, so I pulled her to me
Ooo her sweet smell sent blood rushing through me
Then the credits rolled, didn’t want the night to be through
Quickly tried to think of somethin’ Christian we could do
She asked me up for coffee to put a cap on the night
Coffee turned into a kiss and man it felt so right
 
Now little tangents of love slip through my veins
Far be it for me to try and explain ooo
She’s got my ocean so high, and my sky so deep
She’s got me twisted, tangled, turned, don’t know my head from my feet ooo
 
Lightnin’ don’t move faster than this
It don’t burn no brighter or make less sense
Months felt like years in all of April and May
Most fall as deep in a week as we did in a day
Beautiful soul mind body
Had to start considerin’ flippin’ the m in me
 
Talk began to sing of rings and little ones
But Uncle Sam called I had to move along
The war in the desert wadn’t goin’ no where
Had to go along and help, I had to do my share riding
Oooooh… hangin’ on too tight
Is it time or to soon to make this girl my wife
 
Cause little tangents of love slip through my veins
Far be it for me to try and explain ooo
She can pick me up or bring me to my knees
She burns the kind of inner fire that a young man needs ooo
