Land   Verenigde Staten

Hiphop- en r&b-groep uit Philadelphia, in 1985 opgericht door de toen 14-jarige Nathan Morris en zijn klasgenoot Marc Nelson. Via het schoolkoor kwamen Wanya Morris en Shawn Stockman erbij. Michael McCary kwam er als laatste bij. In eerste instantie trad het vijftal op als Unique Attraction.

Als Boyz II Men (de naam is ontleend aan het nummer Boys To Men van New Edition, geen Top 40-hit) lag het hoogtepunt van hun populariteit halverwege de jaren negentig. Tot 2003 vormden Nathan Morris, Wanya Morris, Shawn Stockman en Michael McCary een kwartet. Later werd het een trio zonder McCary.


Songtekst

And I....

Darlin' I, I can't explain
Where did we lose our way
Girl it's drivin' me insane
And I know I just need one more chance
To prove my love to you
If you come back to me
I'll guarantee
That I'll never let you go

CHORUS:

Can we go back to the days our love was strong
Can you tell me how a perfect love goes wrong
Can somebody tell me how to get things back
The way they used to be
Oh God give me the reason
I'm down on bended knee
I'll never walk again, until you come back to me
I'm down on bended knee

So many nights I dream of you
Holding my pillow tight
I know that I don't need to be alone
When I open up my eyes
To face reality
Every moment without you
It seems like eternity
I'm begging you, begging you come back to me

CHORUS:

Can we go back to the days our love was strong
Can you tell me how a perfect love goes wrong
Can somebody tell me how to get things back
The way they used to be
Oh God give me the reason
I'm down on bended knee
I'll never walk again, until you come back to me
I'm down on bended knee

(Baby, Im sorry. Please forgive me for all the wrong I've done.
Please come back home girl. I know you put all your trust
in me, I'm sorry I let you down. Please forgive me girl.)

I'm gonna swallow my pride
Say I'm sorry
Stop pointing fingers, the blame is on me
I want a new life
And I want it with you
If you feel the same
Don't ever let it go
You gotta believe, in the spirit of love
it can heal all things
We won't hurt any more
No I don't believe our love's terminal
I'm down on my knees, begging you please
Come home

CHORUS:

Can we go back to the days our love was strong
Can you tell me how a perfect love goes wrong
Can somebody tell me how to get things back
The way they used to be
Oh God give me the reason
I'm down on bended knee
I'll never walk again, until you come back to me
I'm down on bended knee

(Wanna build a new life
Just you and me
Gonna make you my wife
Raise a family)

Can somebody tell me how to get things back
The way things used to be
Oh God give me a reason
I'm down on bended knee
I'll never walk again, til you come back to me
I'm down on bended knee
