[Intro:]
So long, so long, so long
So long, so long, so long
So long, so long, so long
Ooh So long, so long, so long

[Verse:]
It's been taking forever don't know where you are
And it before it even had my heart
No use in looking I know your word I want
I've been searching and searching can't find where you've been
Wish I could put my finger right on me
I can't describe it but I know this feelings real ooh

[Pre Chorus:]
Tell me where I need you
Do anything to see you
Anytime on night or day
I'll already know you when I see you
Kiss your hand and quti you
So won't you be on your way

[Chorus:]
Is like I already know you
Before I even met you
What took you so long babe
(What took you so long babe)
What took you so long babe
(What took you so long babe)
Is like already love you
Before I even met you
What took you so long babe
(What took you so long babe)
What took you so long babe
(What took you so long babe)

[Verse:]
Is this... waiting for you to come and change my life
Knew it was you because did you spell so right ooh ooh
This energy you're giving me, you're giving me
Is so familiar, so baby take this moment to remember me
'Cause I'll be gone till November

[Pre Chorus:]
Tell me where I need you
Do anything to see you
Anytime on night or day
I'll already know you when I see you
Kiss your hand and quti you
So won't you be on your way

[Chorus:]
Is like I already know you
Before I even met you
What took you so long babe
(What took you so long babe)
What took you so long babe
(What took you so long babe)
Is like already love you
Before I even met you
What took you so long babe
(What took you so long babe)
What took you so long babe
(What took you so long babe)

[Bridge:]
Seems like I waited all my life for you to get here
Feels like every day is Valentine 365 a year
You're everything and so much more
And with you I adore
And I hope & pray, you'll stay with me
Like a love of always known

[Chorus:]
Is like I already know you
Before I even met you
What took you so long babe
(What took you so long babe)
What took you so long babe
(What took you so long babe)
Is like already love you
Before I even met you
What took you so long babe
(What took you so long babe)
What took you so long babe
(What took you so long babe)

So long, so long, so long
...

[Tyrese Talking:]
I should apologize
For assuming I already knew you
There is something so familiar about you
Touch kiss and every part of your body
So my question is what took you so long

[Outro:]
So long, so long, so long
So long, so long, so long
(What took you so long babe)
So long, so long, so long
So long, so long, so long
(What took you so long babe)
