Intro:
Do you mind if I talk to you for a minute?
You see these fellows out here?
See, they’re afraid of doing that long term thing
They think as soon as they lock hearts with another,
Something better is gonna come along
Well, that’s quite possibly true
But the truth is, you’re gonna have to find yourself a love
Or you’re gonna find yourself alone

Verse 1:
See I’m schooled in them streets and streets y’all
Yeah I was cooling them clubs
Real talk I wasn’t thinking nothing ’bout love
See I don’t want nobody trying to part-take in my stuff
Caught in a cage in a one night stand could be enough
Oh but one day I, I met this girl and she ruined my philosophy
She caught me by surprise
And now my heart skips a beat when she comes around
I never thought that I’d be ready to settle down
See I was about to find myself alone,
But I found myself a love

Chorus:
It’s gonna take a minute to evolve
But I’d rather have a love than nothing at all
I’m ready for a love of my own yeah
Can’t stay in this place forever
Even though I want to, I just see us together
And I’d rather have a love, than live a life alone

Verse 2:
See, I was raised by a good one
Momma told me what a real man should be
She said son pick one, and treat her like me
But I took all of her wisdom, and used it for selfish gains
And I know if she saw this pimping, she’s be ashamed
But now I found her
I found this girl and I see things differently
You caught me by surprise
It’s like I got two left feet when she comes around
I never thought that I’d be ready to settle down
See I was about to find myself alone,
But I found myself a love

Chorus:
It’s gonna take a minute to evolve
But I’d rather have a love than nothing at all
I’m ready for a love of my own yeah
Can’t stay in this place forever
Even though I want to, I just see us together
And I’d rather have a love, than live a life alone

Well I chose to be the guy that only chases frivolous pleasure
But on the other hand, need to build a dream with true love and affection
I knew it’s going to be quite a challenge
I knew it was gonna take some time
But I’m here and I’m ready to change
Cause I know I’ve found myself a love

Chorus:
It’s gonna take a minute to evolve
But I’d rather have a love than nothing at all
I’m ready for a love of my own yeah
Can’t stay in this place forever
Even though I want to, I just see us together
And I’d rather have a love, than live a life alone

Said it’s gonna take a minute to evolve
But I’d rather have a love than nothing at all
I’m ready for a love of my own
