I've been wonderin' about the complexity of what we have
It shouldn't be more, just can't see more
I've been wonderin' about the complexity of what we have
It shouldn't be more, just can't see more

You're physically in this, but how could we tell
If we was meant to be in bliss if you're not mentally as well?
This energy you're sendin' me is tricky as hell
Usually it's like a 50/50, we could take a L

Before we start things, at this point bein' apart brings
The feelin' of somebody pluckin' at your heart strings
I know it probably shouldn't feel like this
But any other woman I see is in your likeness

It's from your cheekbones to your lips, to your curves
To your deep moans, to that walk, to your words
You love feelin' like a breakdown on the verge
First we on good terms, then you on my last nerves

Got my back just achin', my shoes is all tight
It's too complex when we choose to do it right
It's wrong, one minute you a soldier strong
Then you tryin' a route talkin' about it's over and gone

I've been wonderin' about the complexity of what we have
It shouldn't be more, just can't see more
I've been wonderin' about the complexity of what we have
It shouldn't be more, just can't see more

When your boyfriend's in town, it's bound to be trouble, love
His name Black, and he known to be a lover of
Gettin' it on with my smoker's jacket on
Eyes racin' back and forth listenin' to Chaka Khan

Tryin' to figure the cause why you always actin' off like I'm slackin' off
Maybe our signal's gettin' crossed
For the case love, you feel like you makin' a waste of
Your precious time you need to get a taste of

Some space to breathe, a moment as friends
We should've felt ourselves slippin' into it again
'Cuz it's like off and on, on and off
Passion, lost and found, found and lost

Clashin', askin' for nothin' but understandin'
Your hearts made of glass, use care when handlin'
Girl, all in all I never leave you stranded
'Cuz my respect you commanded, you figure it out

I've been wonderin' about the complexity of what we have
It shouldn't be more, just can't see more
I've been wonderin' about the complexity of what we have
It shouldn't be more, just can't see more

I used to come into the party and stand around
'Cuz I was kinda too shy to really get down
I used to play the corner and watch the scene
Deep down knowin' I wanted to find me a queen

And I could feel that in my stomach and up in my chest
Because I knew a lot of women, and some was fresh
But then I found you girl, and just like me
You had a heart that was yearnin' to be set free

Now listen, see you and me we need to take the time
To erase any doubt that's inside your mind
It's not a mountain that I'm ever too tired to climb
And who's countin', but I know at least a thousand times

I let you know I'm here for you, care for you, and confide in you
Break bread, share with you, and provide for you
And that's full time, it's no 9 to 5 with you
That's why I'm tryin' to work it out with you, it's gonna work

I've been wonderin' about the complexity of what we have
It shouldn't be more, just can't see more
I've been wonderin' about the complexity of what we have
It shouldn't be more, just can't see more

I've been wonderin' about the complexity of what we have
It shouldn't be more, just can't see more
I've been wonderin' about the complexity of what we have
It shouldn't be more, just can't see more
