Ari Lennox & Anthony Ramos – If You Want Me To Stay lyrics

[Ari Lennox, Anthony Ramos, both]
If you want me to stay, I’ll be around today
To be available for you to see
But I’m about to go and then you’ll know
For me to stay here, I got to be me
You’ll never be in doubt, that’s what it’s all about
You can’t take me for granted and smile
Count the days I’m gone, forget reachin’ me by phone
Because I promise I’ll be gone for a while
And when you see me again I hope that you have been
The kind of person that you really are now
You got to get in straight, how could I ever be late
When you’re the woman taking up my time?
Whoa, oh, how could you ever allow? I guess I wonder how
I could get out a pocket for fun
When you know that you’re never number two (Never number two)
Number one’s gonna be number one (Oh, ow, oh)
I’ll be good, I wish I could
Get this message over to you now
Oh, oh, ayy
Oh, baby, eh, eh, oh, ayy

[Ari Lennox, Anthony Ramos, both]
And when you see me again, I hope that you have been
The kind of person that you really are now
I’ll be so good, I wish I could
Get the message over to you now
Ow, eh
Oh
Oh, yeah, oh, yeah
Get the message over to you now (Babe)
Uh, oh, yeah, oh
Oh, yeah, yeah
