Songtekst

You wanna handcuff me
But yo, I don't know what to tell ya
(don't know what to tell ya)
You want my intimacy
But yo, I don't know what to tell ya
(don't know what to tell ya)

You want a wall around me
I swear, I don't know what to tell ya
(don't know what to tell ya)
You want my lock and my key
But yo, I don't know what to tell ya
(don't know what to tell ya)

Incarceration's what Im facing
When Im with you
You're watching my every move
Trying to pick up on some clues

We play 20 questions
Every time I walk in or out the door
What do you bother for?
(What do you bother for?)
Get comfortable with yours

Its gonna take
(Take)
TRUST to keep our LOVE
Its gonna take
(Gonna take)
Its gonna take
(Take)
TRUST to keep our LOVE crackin'

Stressin' second guessin' me
Time and time again
We go from lovers back to friends
Got to put this to an end
(Hey, yeah)

You wanna handcuff me
But yo, I don't know what to tell ya
(don't know what to tell ya)
You want my intimacy
But yo, I don't know what to tell ya
(don't know what to tell ya)

You want a wall around me
I swear, I don't know what to tell ya
(don't know what to tell ya)
You want my lock and my key
But yo, I don't know what to tell ya
(don't know what to tell ya)

No justifications for your actions
Should have been somewhere relaxin'
don't compare me to your last one
I cant help it she was a fast one

A sassy one
Im a classy one
I can't keep you from getting happy hon
Seems like that she'll make you happy hon

Its gonna take
(Gonna take)
TRUST to keep our LOVE
Its gonna take
(Gonna take)
Its gonna take
(Take)
TRUST to keep our LOVE crackin'

I cant deny or lie
I tried to put up with you
These insecurities every day
Pushing my love away

You wanna handcuff me
But yo, I don't know what to tell ya
(Yeah, no)
(don't know what to tell ya)
You want my intimacy
But yo, I don't know what to tell ya
(don't know what to tell ya)

You want a wall around me
I swear I don't know what to tell ya
(I swear, yeah)
(don't know what to tell ya)
You want my lock and my key
(My lock and my key)
But yo, I don't know what to tell ya
(don't know what to tell ya)
(No)

You wanna handcuff me
But yo, I don't know what to tell ya
(Yes, you do)
(don't know what to tell ya)
You want my intimacy
But yo, I don't know what to tell ya
(No)
(don't know what to tell ya)

You want a wall around me
(you want to wall around me)
I swear, I don't know what to tell ya
(I swear)
(don't know what to tell ya)
You want my lock and my key
But yo, I don't know what to tell ya
(don't know what to tell ya)

Said is gonna take
Its gonna take
(Take)
TRUST to keep our LOVE
(Yeah)
Its gonna take
Its gonna take
TRUST to keep our LOVE

Its gonna take
Its gonna take
TRUST to keep our LOVE
Its gonna take
Its gonna take
TRUST to keep our LOVE crackin', crackin'
