Intro (LL):
It's been a long time
People change
I used 2 always think about U
I missed U
Word up
Even though sometimes I see U
And I try to ignore U
What'd U think
Deep inside I was thinkin' about U

Verse 1:
(Tamia)
You are, my life
I have to go on
Havin' me, anyway U want me baby
Just love me till the tension's gone
And don't U come, too soon

(LL)
I'm patient, I never come too soon
When I kissed U, U said it was the same old tune
I was hopeless sittin' in an empty room
But I missed U, my life was filled with gloom
All the drama got 2 stop baby no more tricks
When U re-appeared I was back in the mix,
I put the key up in the lock ''cause true love fixed
My broken heart was addicted, but now it's fixed
And I cherished U forever, believe me U,
U's a priceless treasure from my point of view
It took time to change, I'll admit that,
My back-in-the-day's love, I had to get back

Chorus (Tamia)
You are my starship
And don't be late, you are
Come take me up tonight
And don't be late,
And don't you, come too soon

My starship, come take me up tonight
Verse 2:
(LL)
I never thought that I would ever lay beside U again,
Tastin' every inch plus bein' your friend
Romantic nights with shootin' stars and full moons,
Kiss the Rose better til it come full bloom
Keep it steady, providin' everything U crave
Can U feel it, passion overflows in waves,
Now U ready, I like that, my love U save,
I love it when a bad girl agrees to behave
But devotion, makes it all twice as sweet
Back together, reunited, bonded once more,
It's the motion that makes your love affair complete,

Before I was hesitant, but now I'm sure
Chorus (2x)

Bridge (LL)
Well, now U know how I feel
Word up
And I definitely know how U feel
I'm feelin' this
'cause with U by my side
Word up
I'ma take it to the top, yeah

Outro (Tamia
