Ooh, uh, ooh
Ooh, uh, ooh
Yeh, yeh
You understand me
At least you say you do
Lately
That's enough for me
Looking for perfect
Surrounded by artificial
You're the closest thing
To real I've seen
Sure
Everyone
Has their problems
That's a given
Yours are
The easiest to tolerate
This wasn't
What we was wanting
How we're living
But let's take
This good enough
And turn it to great
Baby understand

This can only be
As good
As we both make it
Guess sometimes
It's gonna hurt
(Yes sometimes
It's gonna hurt)
We can be as happy
As we want to be girl
But we gotta make it work
We gotta make it work

Ay, oh, ay, oh, oh
We gotta make it work
Ay, oh, ay, oh, oh
We gotta make it work
Ay, oh, ay, oh, oh
We gotta make it work
Ay, oh, ay, oh, oh

Sometimes I love you
More
Than you'll ever know
Other times
You get on my nerves
(Hey)
That's just reality
No, it can't always be
Kisses, hugs
And beautiful words

You was looking
For your prince, ooh
What you found
(Wat u found)

Is a pauper
With potential
And no
I'm nowhere
Near perfect, no
But I'm around
(But I'm around)
Girl
Time and patience
Is essential
Baby realize

This can only be
As good
As we both make it
Guess sometimes
It's gonna hurt
(Guess sometimes
It's gonna hurt)
We can be as happy
As we want to be girl
But we gotta make it work
We gotta make it work

Ay, oh, ay, oh, oh
We gotta makeit work
Ay, oh, ay, oh, oh
We gotta make it work
Ay, oh, ay, oh, oh
We gotta make it work
Ay, oh, ay, oh, oh

Thick and thin
(Ooh)
The bad outweighs
The good sometimes
That doesn't mean
We're 'spose
To give it up
My problems are yours
And yours are mine

This can only be
As good
As we both make it
Guess sometimes
It's gonna hurt
(Guess sometimes
It's gonna hurt)
We can be as happy
As we want to be girl
But we gotta make it work
We gotta make it work

Ay, oh, ay, oh, oh
We gotta make it work
Ay, oh, ay, oh, oh
We gotta make it work
Ay, oh, ay, oh, oh
We gotta make it work
Ay, oh, ay, oh, oh
