I've been trying to tell you
I've been putting it off, putting it off
Can't wait any longer

You've been good to me
And that only makes it harder
To say what I gotta say

You gotta know I didn't plan it
It was the last thing on my mind
How can you love two people at the same time?
Now I don't wanna lose you
But I can't give him up

I know it's unconventional
Radical but practical
Why can't the three of us live together?
It's a culture shock
But it's the only hope we've got
Tell me, why can't the three of us live together?

If I could go back and undo it
If I had a time machine
I'd make it unhappen like a bad dream

But honey, you gotta know, I didn't plan it
It was the last thing on my mind
How can you love two people at the same time?
Now I don't wanna lose you
But I can't give him up

I know it's unconventional
Radical but practical
Why can't the three of us live together?
It's a culture shock
But it's the only hope we've got
So tell me, why can't the three of us live together?

You're not taking this too well
It's out of the question, I can tell
It's not gonna work, is it?

I know it's unconventional
It's radical but practical
I don't wanna lose you, no
But I not gonna give him up, no
It's a culture shock
No, it's the only hope we've got
Tell me, why can't the three of us live together?

I know it's unconventional
Radical but practical
Why can't the three of us live together?
It's a culture shock
But it's the only hope we've got
So tell me, why can't the three of us live together?

I know it's unconventional
Radical but practical
I don't wanna lose you, no
But I not gonna give him up, give him up
It's a culture shock
No, it's the only hope we've got
Why can't the three of us live together?

I know it's unconventional
