I gotta protect my heart
I gotta protect my heart

[Kelis]
You were the heart of the spot
But you wouldn't tell me your name
You were like
Girl you ready or not
To dance the entire night away
You and I

[Pharrell]
Let me hold you girl, hold you girl
[Kelis]
You were sayin
[Pharrell]
Let me touch it girl
[Kelis]
You were sayin
[Pharrell]
Let me squeeze you girl, squeeze you girl
[Kelis]
You tought me up
[Pharrell]
Let me you girl

[Kelis]
So when I first got here I knew already
I gotta protect my heart
Make all changes, new desitions and flip it
I gotta protect my heart

The room is Oh so hot
If you want more than that than walk away
I'm givin it all I got
And at the same time tryin to make ten

[Kelis]
You were sayin
[Pharrell]
Let me hold you girl, hold you girl
[Kelis]
You were sayin
[Pharrell]
Let me touch it girl
[Kelis]
You were sayin
[Pharrell]
Let me squeeze you girl, squeeze you girl
[Kelis]
You tought me up
[Pharrell]
Let me you girl

[Kelis]
So when I first got here I knew already
I gotta protect my heart
And the you come change things I knew that some would flip it
I gotta protect my heart
Never been touched by the way someone woo's and that scares me
I gotta protect my heart
You even knew that you were comin, you should of prepared me
I gotta protect my heart

I just need ta
I walked away from the door
I could feel myself reverseing
I never gave it before
See i guess that how ive been
When you were like

[Pharrell]
Let me hold you girl, hold you girl
[Kelis]
You were sayin
[Pharrell]
Let me touch it girl
[Kelis]
You were sayin
[Pharrell]
Let me squeeze you girl, squeeze you girl
[Kelis]
You tought me up
[Pharrell]
Let me you girl

[Kelis]
So when I first got here I knew already
I gotta protect my heart
And the you come change things I knew that some would flip it
I gotta protect my heart
Never been touched by the way someone woo's and that scares me
I gotta protect my heart
You even knew that you were comin, you should of prepared me
I gotta protect my heart

[Pharrell]
Break It Down

[Kelis]
So when I first got here I knew already
I gotta protect my heart
And the you come change things I knew that some would flip it
I gotta protect my heart
I gotta protect my heart
I gotta protect my heart
