Chorus:
Wish I could keep you much longer
I know you gotta go, cause you got things to do
Wish I could keep you much longer
Now you too busy for me girl, like I was to you
Wish I could just stop by, and maybe say "hi"
Wish I could just stop by, and lay by your side
Wish I could just stop by, and maybe say "hi"
Wish I could just stop by, and lay by your side

Verse 1:
The tables have turned, and I've finally learned
That this is makin' up for every day I was gone
That's why I'm concerned, but now it's confirmed
That you spread your wings, and learned to fly with but all alone

Bridge:
Darkness in the night, I'll find that light for you
As long as I got eyes, I'll have a sight for you
Long as I'm alive, baby I'll die for you
Wanna be with you

Chorus:
Wish I could keep you much longer
I know you gotta go, cause you got things to do
Wish I could keep you much longer
Now you too busy for me girl, like I was to you
Wish I could just stop by, and maybe say "hi"
Wish I could just stop by, and lay by your side
Wish I could just stop by, and maybe say "hi"
Wish I could just stop by, and lay by your side

Verse 2:
You're always on my mind while I'm racin',
While I'm paper chasin',
You were there when I said one day, "I get up out that basement"
Playin' as my agent, for you there's no replacement
You will always be my girl, they can hold me on that statement

Bridge:
Darkness in the night, I'll find that light for you
As long as I got eyes, I'll have a sight for you
Long as I'm alive, baby I'll die for you
Wanna be with you

Chorus:
Wish I could keep you much longer
I know you gotta go, cause you got things to do
Wish I could keep you much longer
Now you too busy for me girl, like I was to you
Wish I could just stop by, and maybe say "hi"
Wish I could just stop by, and lay by your side
Wish I could just stop by, and maybe say "hi"
Wish I could just stop by, and lay by your side

Verse 3:
Baby I know you, and how we do
Doing exactly what I taught you
Gotta get that money first before you
Come spend that precious time with your boo
And I know what I got, just take it
Even though you was driving me crazy
Always want to see my girl naked, but lately

Chorus:
Wish I could keep you much longer
I know you gotta go, cause you got things to do
Wish I could keep you much longer
Now you too busy for me girl, like I was to you
Wish I could just stop by, and maybe say "hi"
Wish I could just stop by, and lay by your side
Wish I could just stop by, and maybe say "hi"
Wish I could just stop by, and lay by your side

Wish I could keep you much longer
I know you gotta go, cause you got things to do
Wish I could keep you much longer
Now you too busy for me girl, like I was to you
Wish I could just stop by, and maybe say "hi"
Wish I could just stop by, and lay by your side
Wish I could just stop by, and maybe say "hi"
Wish I could just stop by, and lay by your side

I just wanna keep you longer
I just wanna keep you longer
