First glimpse, instant attraction
She acted as if my interest was a common reaction
Took satisfaction in knowin' she was beautiful
She twisted up the blessing and she used it as a tool
Of manipulation yet I was blinder at aim
She was very athletic but yet excelled at the mind game
Lame excuse but it?s the truth, come on, I mean
I was young and naive and would?ve believed anything
When it came to sweetheart, she had me wrapped
Around her little finger and my mind was tapped
But none the less, I'm the fault obviously
I was confused and chose stupidity over patiently waiting
I mean, how could I not see that tryin' to
Fill a God sized void with her would only leave me empty?
But I did it and like a stupid human I fell
By the way, what's her name? I think they call her Jezebel
Jezebel, who? Jezebel, man
Who is she, what is she?
Man, it?s hard to tell
Jezebel, who? Jezebel, come on
What is she about?
Second glimpse, still attracted but I'm not quite sure
Been playin' games with Jezebel but now I question what for?
Before it was a motivation, now it?s not clear
Now I'm askin' myself, "Reuben, who's the one at fault here?"
See, I'm the fool, so why do I remain?
In a relationship with all to looe yet nothing to gain
Except headache, heartache and an occasional where you been?
Pssst, Jezebel, where?d you hear that?
(From a friend)
Frontin' Godliness, I say, "Hey miss, you're posin'
You love material things but you're favorite?s sheepskin clothin'"
So then what can I say? Her charm fades by the day
And I'm askin' the good Lord whatever twisted me to stay
Straight for a moment, now it?s time to let go
Though my willpower?s weak, man, there's one thing that I know
That greater is He that's in me than He who's in this world
And it wasn't the He in me that hooked it up with this girl
Life must go on, the dawn of a new day was risin'
I opened up my eyes and then I started realizin'
That my vision was blurred, so there will be no third glimpse
After two and a half, I think I came to my sense
So with this, I think it?s time that we parted
And dismiss somethin' we should never started
"So miss, I guess, I?ll say farewell"
One last time for the books, her name was what?
