Are you a man who loves
And cherishes
And cares for me?
Is that true? Is that true?
Is that true?
Are you a guard in a prison
Maximum security?
Is that true? Is that true?
Is that true?
Do we stay home all the time
Cuz you want me to yourself?
Is that true? Is that true?
Is that true?
Or am I locked away
Had a feeling that I'd find
Someone else
Is that true? Is that true?
Is that true?

[Chorus:]
Well, I don't like
Living under your spotlight
Just because you think
I might find somebody worthy
Well, I don't like
Living under your spotlight
Baby, if you treat me right
You won't have to worry

Is this a relationship
Fulfilling your needs
As well as mine
Is that true? Is that true?
Is that true?
Or is this just my sentence
Am I doing time?
Is that true? Is that true?
Is that true?
If this is love
Real, real love
Then I'm staying no doubt
But if I'm just a prisoner
Then I'm busting out
Is that true? Is that true?
Is that true?

(Chorus)

Oh, you oughta be
Ashamed of yourself
What the hell
Do you think you're doing?
Loving me, loving me
So wrong
Baby, all I do is try
(Try)
To show you
That you're my
(My)
One and only guy
(Only guy)
No matter
Who may come along
Open your eyes
Cuz baby, I don't lie

(Chorus 2x)

    This song mean what im going thru right now. I love my man but I dont like the fact i have to live under his spotlight. He wants to be everywhere with me and he said "THE POINT OF BEING WITH SOMEONE IS BEING WITH THEM" He wont let me have a ladies night out...almost as if he didnt trust me. I told him he was acting very insecure. And I never gave him reason to feel that way. I do know he loves me alot...and same here. But that can run me away if he doesnt ease up a little. So she got this song off!!! I really feel it when i hear it! Keep it up ma!

    This song is great. I just bought Jennifer's whole album and it's one of the best R&B albums this year! Her talent is undescribable.

    I think she is a relationship with a man that is jealous. Apparently he's afraid that she may find someone else, he's not doing something he should be. All I can say is get out from under the spotlight. That's not good. I love the music to this song, the lyrics I can't relate to. To old, independent and set in my ways for a spotlight. I like Jennifer's music. I think she will do well in the music world. She's young, talented and virbant. Much luck to her.
