Babyface – What If lyrics

I ran into a friend of yours the other day
And I asked her how you've been
She said my girl is fine; just bought a house, got a job, real good man
I told her I was glad for you; that's wonderful
But does she ever ask 'bout me?
She said she's happy with her life right now
Let her go, let her be
And I told myself I would, but something in my heart just would not let you go
I just wanna know

What if we were wrong about each other?
What if you were really made for me?
What if we was 'sposed to be together?
Would that not mean anything?
What if that was 'sposed to be my house that you go home to every day?
How can you be sure that things are better?
If you can't be sure your heart is still here with me
Still wanting me

Your friend asked me if there was someone special in my life that I was seeing
I told her there was no one in particular
There's just I, myself, and me
I told her that I dream of you quite often
She just cut her eyes at me
She said you got a home, you're very happy
So just stop your meddling
I told her that I won't
I said things were cool, but I guess I was wrong
I still can't move on


Now that could be my car
That could be my house
That could be my baby boy that you're nursing
That could be the trash that I always take out
That could be the chair that I love to chill in
That could be my food on the table at the end of the day
Hugs and the kisses, all the love we make
What the hell do you expect me to say?
What if it's really 'sposed to be this way?
What if you're really 'sposed to be with me?

[Chorus fade-out]

    It's unfair. But in some chances- that's love. No matter how much you would like to hold on, fight for it, and understand it- some things and some love are never meant to grow. The hardest part of life is making decision. Coz you'll never know what will happen after few hurting words spoken, after tears from eyes has fell. Beware of Love- it might be the strangest thing you can have in life. I feel bad, for having people who love me for real but I have to let go- coz they are too good for me. Too good to be true on my part. Too good to be us. Forever dream till you wake up. It's love.

    No one knows what will be happened into your life this is not easy for me. Letting you go really breaks me! But I guess its the right thing to do. We're not meant for each other, you already have your own life and I have mine. Things wont work for us anymore, whatever we do, it tears us apart!. True, people come to our lives and then they go. But you, you'll always be a special part of me, of who iam. I love you so much, and I know you feel the same way. But this love is not for us now. But I promise i'll be back once all the have been done. I'll miss you and I really do love you.
