Do you mind if I talk to you for a minute?
You see these fellows out here?
See, they’re afraid of doing that long term thing
They figure as soon as they lock hearts with another
Something better is gonna come along
Well, that’s quite possibly true
But the deal is, you’re gonna have to find yourself a love
Or you’re gonna find yourself alone

See I’m schooled in them streets and streets y’all
Yeah I was cooling them clubs
Real talk I wasn’t thinking nothing ’bout love
See I didn’t want nobody tryin' to partake in my stuff
I thought an occasional one night stand would be enough
Oh but one day I, I met this girl and she ruined my philosophy
It caught me by surprise
And now my heart skips a beat when she comes around
I never thought that I’d be ready to settle down
See I was about to find myself alone
But I found myself a love

It’s gonna take a minute to evolve
But I’d rather have a love than nothing at all
I’m ready for a love of my own yeah
Can’t stay in this place forever
Even though I want to, I just see us together
And I’d rather have a love, than live a life alone

See, I was raised by a good one
Momma told me what a real man should be
She said son pick one, and treat her like me
But I took all of her wisdom, and used it for selfish gains
And I know if she saw this pimpin', she’s be ashamed
But now I found her
I found this girl and I see things differently
It caught me by surprise
It’s like I got two left feet when she comes around
I never thought that I’d be ready to settle down
See I was about to find myself alone
But I found myself a love

It’s gonna take a minute to evolve
But I’d rather have a love than nothing at all
I’m ready for a love of my own yeah
Can’t stay in this place forever
Even though I want to, I just see us together
And I’d rather have a love, than live a life alone

On the one hand I could chose to be the guy that only chases frivolous pleasure
But on the other hand, need to build a dream with true love and affection
I know it’s going to be quite a challenge
I know it's gonna take some time
But I’m here and I’m ready to change
Cause I know I’ve found myself a love

It’s gonna take a minute to evolve
But I’d rather have a love than nothing at all
I’m ready for a love of my own yeah
Can’t stay in this place forever
Even though I want to, I just see us together
And I’d rather have a love, than have a life alone

Said it’s gonna take a minute to evolve
But I’d rather have a love than nothing at all
I’m ready for a love of my own
