Part of My Life Lyrics

by India Arie

Can you be a part of my life?
(Ohh yeah)
Can you be a part of my life?

Oh it's easy to find someone to play with
Almost anyone will do to fill your idle time
But that very special someone
You can share all your dreams with is so hard to find
And it used to be like me to settle for the physical
But these days it ain't too easy to make up my mind
'Cause apparently your body's just too temporary to take up my precious time
(Ohh)

See I've got to know that
That I can be free with you and
You've got to show that
That you're worthy of my time
Can you stimulate my mind?

And I know that it looks good
But can you be a part of my life?
And I'm sure that it feels good
But can you be a part of my life?
And it probably even tastes good
But can you be a part of my life?
I've got to know
(I've got to know, ohh)

I still appreciate the beauty of a man
But there is more to what I need now than what meets the eye
And if beauty's only skin deep
Then your pretty skin won't send me to my highest high
Oh it's been a long time comin' for maturity
And I believe that it's truly what it has to be
'Cause as much as I admire you
My sexual desire, ain't controlling me
(Yeah)

See I've got to know that
That I can be free with you and
You've got to show that
That you're worthy of my time
Can you stimulate my mind?

And I know that it looks good
But can you be a part of my life?
And I'm sure that it feels good
But can you be a part of my life?
And it probably even tastes good
But can you be a part of my life?
I've got to know
(I've got to know, ohh)

And I know that it looks good
But can you be a part of my life?
And I'm sure that it feels good
But can you be a part of my life?
And it probably even tastes good
But can you be a part of my life?
I've got to know
(I've got to know, ohh)
I've got to know
(I've got to know)

Can you be a part of my life?
(I got to know that)
Can you be a part of my life?
(I got to know that)
Can you be a part of my life?
(I got to know that)
Can you be a part of my life?
(Ohh yeah)
(I got to know that)
Can you be a part of my life?
(I got to know that)
Can you be a part of my life?
(I got to know that)
(I got to know that)
Can you be a part of my life?
(Ohh)
Can you be a part of my life?
(Can you be a?)
(I got to know that)
Can you be a part of my life?
(I got to know that)
