Never seen a sun shine like this
Never seen the moon glow like this
Never seen the waterfalls like this
Never seen the lights off like this
Never dug anyone like this
Never had tasty lips to kiss
Never had someone to miss
Never heard a song quite like this

[Chorus]
Fortunate to have you girl,
I'm so glad you're in my world,
Just as sure as the sky is blue,
I bless the day that I found you.

Never had room service all night
Never took a trip first class flight
Never had a love affair so tight
I've never felt a feeling so right
Never seen a winter so white
Never had words to recite
Never had a flame to ignite
And I never sang a song with all my might.

[Chorus 2x]
Fortunate to have you girl,
I'm so glad you're in my world,
(I'm so ecstatic baby)
Just as sure as the sky is blue,
I bless the day that I found you.
(It's all about you)

Fortunate to have you girl,
I'm so glad you're in my world,
(Lady.. so.. so so glad)
Just as sure as the sky is blue,
I bless the day that I found you.
(Can you hear the silence child?)

Silence child so I hope you hear
I'm callin out to your body
Baby you know just what to do
Close the door no interlude.
(Put yo hands together now)

[Chorus 7x]
(Let em see)
(She is my girl.. my world.. my pearl)
(And I'm so mighty mighty proud about it)
(Ain't no shame in my game)
(Oh.. No)
(I wanna show you off)
(I wanna let them know)
(Let the whole world know I'm..)
(Loving my baby now [2x])
(Ain't nobody)
(I said ain't no lady lady lady better than my baby)
(See I'm so mighty mighty mighty proud.. mighty proud)
(Babe, it's makin me dance)
(Makin me dance [5x])

    It explain him going to a room where his wife/lover took her life. It's almost like a ritual visit to feel her presence. He comes to the room he doesn't know where she is, but he knows she's there, so he sings her this song of feelings. The verse where he says (can you hear the silence child? ) or the verse "silence child so i hope you hear". Meaning he knows she's a spirit and hopes the silence isn't too silence so she can hear him. By the end of the video he drops to the bed with his head down because he is mourning her.

    This is a bad @** jam, but the whole song changed for the better, when he said, It's making me dance". What?!!! Pure genius!!!
