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
