Xscape – Understanding lyrics

What I need from you is understanding,
How can we communicate,
If you don't hear what I say.
What I need from you is understanding,
So simple as 1-2-3,
Understanding is what we need.

[Verse One (Tiny):]
You don't really know me,
You just wanna do what you wanna do.
That's not the way it should be,
No, you should listen to me boy.
I try so very hard to make you understand,
But the choices you make, baby they're all demands.

I try so very hard to keep our love alive,
But you don't wanna meet me half way,
Then the understanding dies.
There's no way that we can work it out,
If we don't pull together.
I don't mean to be demanding,
But I want some understanding,
I want to be with you.

[Repeat Chorus]

[Verse Two (Latocha):]
I listen to you baby,
And I know the things you're going through.
I try to understand,
That's why I'm still here with you, baby.
See everyday we're living,
Is one thing that will always be unsure.
That's why I need you baby, pleading baby,
Please let our love endure.

[Repeat Break & Chorus (x2)]

[Repeat Chorus to fade]
