Bring it over here and let's go back
Way back, ooh, way back, yeah
I met him when I was a little girl
He gave me he gave me poetry
And he was my first

But in my heart I knew I wasn't the only one
'Cause when the tables turned he had to break up
Whenever I got lonely or needed some advice
He gave me his shoulder his words were very nice

But that is all behind me 'cause now there is no other
My love is his and his is mine, a friend became the

Love of my life
You are my friend, love of my life
I can depend, love of my life
Wwithout you, baby it feels like a simple true love
Hope this shit ain't clear

A freak freak, y'all, and ya don't stop
To the beat y'all and ya don't stop, a freak freak
Or could it be that it was, all just so simple then
A teenage lover who said he's just a friend

He moved around and we kept in touch through his friend Mike
The world was young and he knew we couldn't rush
But whenever I got lonely or needed some advice
He gave me his shoulder, his words were very nice

But that is all behind me 'cause now there is no other
My love is his and his is mine, a friend became the

Love of my life
You are my friend, love of my life
A dude I can depend, yeah, yeah
Love of my life
Feels like a simple true love, yeah
Hope this shit ain't clear

Y'all know how I met her
We broke up and got back together
To get her back I had to sweat her
Thought she roll with bad boys forever in many ways

Them boys may be better, to I had to let her
(Never)
She needed cheddar and I understood that
Lookin' for cheese, that don't make her a hood rat
(Rat)
In fact she's a queen to me, her light beams on me
I love it when she sings to me, it's like that now

Love of my life
Ooh, you know you rock my world and
Love of my life
You be boy and I'll be girl and
Love of my life
We don't stop until the break of dawn, ooh

Love of my life
Ooh, you know you rock my world and
Love of my life
You be boy and I'll be girl and
Love of my life, yeah
