(feat. George Duke)

[Intro:]
Hey
Mmmm hmmm,
Listen to me,listen to me,listen to me,
listen to me
Listen to me,listen to me,listen to me,listen...

I've been talking to this man
He's been saying what I like and
He makes me smile,
When I'm down,so down

He says sweet things in my ear
All the things that I needed to hear
But that's as far as it's gone
I promise,I promise

But I enjoy it,I love it so
Cause it seems like I'm always alone
You're at arms reach
But baby,
Where are you?
Where are you?

Cause I got this fire
Sweet and true
But I'm cold as ice around you

[Chorus:]
Cause I'm lonely
Whenever you're around
Cause I'm lonely
Whenever you're around

[Instrumental Break]

Whoa,whoa,whoa
What happened to the wonderful thing
we had
It seems like you're missing in action
And I'm tired,I'm tired
I'm tired,I'm tired,I'm tired,I'm tired

I don't wanna lose this good life
But I ain't scared
If I'm going to be the only one participating
in this

[Chorus]

    Jill scott knows what she wants in a relationship! Though she loves this man, he isn't fulfilling something in her therefore shes 'lonely whenever he's around'. Love this song :) finally someone knows what they want and isn't wishy washy with their feelings!
