Ohh Ohh Ohhh Oohhh
Ohh Ohh Ohhh

Yeah

Listen

I'd be a liar if I told you
That I didnґt see it comin'
I'd be more of a liar if I said:
Hey, I didn't want it to be something.

You deserve much better
For the love that you have shared
I know u won't believe it
But girl I swear

That I got love for you,
Big love for you,
Even when I'm trippin',
The fact remains that you
Will always be my baby, my baby

But dig the truth,
Baby dig the truth
I can't hide my feelings

Especially when the whole world can see

That my heart
Is in two different places:

I got you in my life
And I wanna do right
But itґs hard to let it go

When my love has two different faces
And I can't break ties
'cause they both look right.
Someone tell me

What's a man to do
When he's loving two.
And he donґt wanna lie
But he canґt tell the truth

What's a man to do
When he's loving two.
But he canґt keep his heart
In two different places
(in two different places)

I know you feel it
'Cause you stayed
There is much more to the story

But I'd be a fool to say
I trust that Iґm always gonna love her

You know that you don't wanna hear
How Iґm livin' on the edge, baby
So I just say "YEAH, BABY"

She ainґt nothing,
But she is real
But why I take her through it

When I still got love for you,
Big love for you
Even when I'm trippin',
The fact remains that you
Will always be my baby, my baby

But dig the truth,
Baby dig the truth
I can't hide my feelings
Especially when the whole world can see

That my heart is in two different places:

I got you in my life
And I wanna do right
But itґs hard to let it go

When my love has two different faces
And I can't break ties cause they both look right.

Someone tell me

What's a man to do
When he's loving two.
And he donґt wanna lie
But he canґt tell the truth

What's a man to do
When he's loving two.
But he can't keep his heart
In two different places
(not in two different places)

I wanna tell you it's over
And that I ainґt thinkin' of her
I wanna really mean it
And I want you to see it
That I really try to leave her behind
And Iґm tryin' not to make you cry
I wanna tell you
That I ain't playin' games
And Iґm dedicated
To receive a change but
When I look in the mirror
Itґs the same old me

That my heart
Is in two different places:

I got you in my life
And I wanna do right
But itґs hard to let it go

When my love has two different faces
And I can't break ties
Cause they both look right.
Someone tell me

What's a man to do
When he's loving two.
And he donґt wanna lie (wanna lie)
But he canґt tell the truth

What's a man to do
When he's loving two.
But he can't keep his heart
In two different places
(not in two different places)
Not in two different places.

    The way I see this song is, i've not long split with my wife, she ended it, it was painful till I met a new girl... thing was I couldn't give myself fully to her because my feeling were still there for my wife, she end it too, to protect herself... but no worries guys i'm still working oin the new girl ;-)

    I love this song. But at the same time it has true facts. That a man can have 2 different girl. He wanna leave someone that he's not closed to but he don't wanna break her heart.

    i think this song to me means that a man has two people he is with and one is his main chick and then he has another on the side. He loves the main and he doesn't want to lose her so he lies and he doesn't want to give up the side chick basically and he doesn't want to give either of them up
