John Legend – She Don't Have To Know lyrics

Woo ooo oo oo ooo
Oh o o o o o o o
Yeah ee ee eah o o
Yaaay ay ay

Oh stealing moments just to be with you
Though it's wrong it's hard to tell the truth
Oh no, she don't have to know she don't have to know

When I meet you, I got my shades on to cover up my eyes
(Just to cover up my eyes)
I'm hoping that nobody sees me passing by through my disguise
I still know you recognize
But you I know you got a little secret of your own
(Yes you do you know you wrong)
Sneaking out with me while your man's at home
You know you wrong, but it's so strong still carrying on
I go to the other side of town so I never risk the chance will catch her eye
Oh no she don't have to know, she don't have to know
And oh girl I know you're doing the same thing too
I won't tell your man the things we do
Oh no he don't have to know, he don't have to know

Someones watching
You got to be careful next time or we're through
Damn it's so stressful doing the dirt we do so sad but true
And I know one day I'm gonna pay
Then you ask me to sneak out of town for just a day or three
Go to dc and hold hands publicly all through the streets
'Cause they don't know you and they don't know me
And oh I feel sorry for mistakes we've made
There's no reason that we should tell her today
She don't have to know she don't have to know
And oh though you give a lot of love to me
Girl I know I'm not the only one you see
But he don't have to know he don't have to know

Oh it's getting crazy I don't want to hurt my baby
And I know it's suppose to be the last time for you and I
But lets not end this way lets wait another day, Oh
I don't want to let you go so I just can't let her know
She don't have to know yeah
Yeah oh I know you're doing the same thing too
Oh and he don't they don't have to know
Yeah oh
