Did you know, did you know
Did you know, did you know
Did you know, did you know
Did you know that I love you?

Did you know, did you know
Did you know, did you know
(And I want you)
Did you know, did you know
Did you know?

I'll admit things ain't been the way I thought they would be
Didn't expect so much stress to develop between me and you
I knew that it wasn't easy but sometimes when we fight
It don't seems like God's design

But then I hear words you said and I promised I would
Stand for you and be true throughout the bad and the good
And I know what it means to be committed
So here's a word for you but you just ain't with it

Stay down, we're almost to the very best part
Stay down, you'll always be the pride in my heart
Stay down, we took and passed the test
Stay down, yeah, we gotta lot of work
Stay down, I know it ain't been the best
But it certainly ain't been the worst

Stay down, the drama will not last forever
Stay down, we'll beat it long as we're together
One day we'll look back on this
(Yeah)
We'll be like, "Remember this?"
(Remember this)
And it's gonna make us smile
(Make us smile)
'Cause in the end we stayed down

I ain't gonna lie, at time you amaze me
You'll be talking and I swear that you're crazy
But I learned a long time ago
That pride don't help it only hurts
And I just want you to know

I need you, baby
(I need you)
I'm just like Weezy, baby
(Baby)
Not Weezy like the son of Baby
But the wife of George and we're moving on up

Ten years strong and we're looking like a plan
I'm looking like your woman and you're looking like my man
We looking like real and the haters look fake
Especially when they hear me say

Stay down, we're almost to the very best part
Stay down, you'll always have a place in my heart
Stay down, we took and passed the test
Stay down, you know we gotta lot of work
Stay down, I know it ain't been the best
But it certainly ain't been the worst

Stay down, the drama will not last forever
Stay down, we'll beat it long as we're together
One day we'll look back on this
We'll be like, "Remember this?"
And it's gonna make us smile
'Cause in the end we stayed down

Understand you are the one of my heart
(Understand, understand)
And I'm holding yours so we can't live apart
When things stop making sense we'll figure it out
I walked into this and I don't wanna walk out, no, no

Everything ain't gonna be how we like
And what is worth keeping if it didn't take a fight?
Your healing is in me and my healing is in you
So get your mind right 'cause here's what we're gonna do

Stay down, we're almost to the very best part
Stay down, you'll always be the pride in my heart
Stay down, we took and passed the test
Stay down, you know we gotta lot of work
Stay down, I know it ain't been the best
But it certainly ain't been the worst

Stay down, the drama will not last forever
Stay down, we'll beat it long as we're together

One day we'll look back on this
We'll be like, "Remember this"?
And it's gonna make us smile
'Cause in the end we stayed down

Did you know, did you know
Did you know, did you know
Did you know, did you know
Did you know that I

Did you know, did you know
Did you know, did you know
Did you know, did you know
Did you know, did you know?
