Girl listen, when I be sittin' at home all by myself now
I be sayin' damn I had a good girl, you know?
You don't even realize how hard it is
To find somebody like you till they gone

You know what I mean?
If you'll let me just
Come back in your life
I, I'll never do it again, I promise

Down at the studio trying to make tracks
Girl, at home all over my back
Every time I say that's what I'm doing
She just thinks it's an excuse
'Cause I'm out try-na get some new snatch

Now I realize that I don't work too hard
To keep her in my life, I've done came to far
For me to turn around, girl
Ain't none of that shit going down, girl
So believe me when I say

Girl, you know you're the only one in my life
I know I've been wrong but I'm try-na live right
I'll give my life if it makes it right
I promise, girl I promise, I promise

I promise, I'mma stay out of these streets
I promise, you'll never be hurt by me
I promise, to be the N I G
When your cold and alone you can get at me

I promise that wasn't in my head
I promise, you ain't gotta worry about me
No more, no more
Girl, just believe, I promise

I promise baby, I'mma be the best man
I don't even know how to be
I promise no more Monday nights at the gentleman's club
It's all about you

Believe, I really meant it when I said, I left it back
See me in the streets and I'm not about that
Said that I'mma be there and I know
Maybe you can see that I'mma be there
Whenever just 'cause you're my lady

I'mma show you just what you deserve
Tell you, you ain't waitin' no more for your turn
You say, you want a ridah
And I can be that and so much more like your provider
And I want you to know I love you

Girl, you know you're the only one in my life
I know I've been wrong but I'm try-na live right
I'll give my life if it makes it right
I promise, girl I promise, I promise

I promise, I'mma stay out of these streets
I promise, you'll never be hurt by me
I promise, to be the N I G
When your cold and alone you can get at me

I promise that wasn't in my head
I promise, you ain't gotta worry about me
No more, no more
Girl, just believe, I promise

Uh, check it out, girl, I promise you love
Promise, I never would leave you
I promise, long as you love me, I could never deceive you
I promise you this, promise you that

Whatever you want
As long as I got it, ain't no problem with that
You my ebony queen
Everything playa ever could dream

Give you the world and everything in between
Now you wanted honesty, monogamy
The way that you honor me
Ain't no other way it gotta be

I couldn't see you with another man, rolling in sand
Strolling through the park, in the dark holding his hand
Me and you versus the world is only the plan
I know it get rough but I'm doing all that I can

Now to the world, I'm just Loon from Harlem
If I had a choice, girl, I'd rather lose then start 'em
Than to ever lose you, I promise, I'll never use you
This not a game girl, I promise

I promise, I'mma stay out of these streets
I promise, you'll never be hurt by me
I promise, to be the N I G
When your cold and alone you can get at me

I promise that wasn't in my head
I promise, you ain't gotta worry about me
No more, no more
Girl, just believe, I promise

I promise, I'mma stay out of these streets
I promise, you'll never be hurt by me
I promise, to be the N I G
When your cold and alone you can get at me

I promise that wasn't in my head
I promise, you ain't gotta worry about me
No more, no more
Girl, just believe, I promise

I promise, I'mma stay out of these streets
I promise, you'll never be hurt by me
I promise, to be the N I G
When your cold and alone you can get at me

I promise that wasn't in my head
I promise, you ain't gotta worry about me
No more, no more
Girl, just believe, I promise

Come on, come on, come on
Rock with me, uh, we love y'all
Yeah, uh huh, this for the ladies
Know what I mean?
