I believe that love and trust are one in the same
I don't think you can truly love somebody unless you trust them
That blind trust, that beyond a shadow of a doubt
No matter what this person sayin', that person
You believe your man
Now you say you love me
But every time one of your little friends come at you with something
We gotta do this
Mama, I'm tryin, I'm trying to show you that I'm for real
Tell me what I gotta do to show you that I'm for you

Just shut up and listen

Two hundred and sixteen
That's how many times that I went
Back and forth about it in my mind
Could she, could she really be
Who he's telling me that she is?
There's something about it
That don't feel right

Said, today she called here twenty-six times
(I know you counted)
You kept telling me not to worry
(Don't worry 'bout it)
Wanna believe that you're telling the truth
(So don't doubt it)
But if you are lying to me...

You're leaving tonight
Out of my life
Everyone said you ain't no good
Then you prove them right
You're leaving tonight
It's over and done
Ain't no sense in trying to wait till the morning comes
(You're leaving tonight)

Baby, now hold up
Let's just settle down
'Cause there's a perfect explanation to this situation
That we're goin' through
(This thing that we're goin' through)
I swear I don't know that girl
But I seen her 'round
And she's expressed how much she want it
But, baby, I'm not on that
All of me is around you, oh

Said, I got a girl like a thousand times
(So you counted)
She kept telling me not to worry
(Don't worry 'bout it)
Please believe I'm telling the truth
(I really doubt it)
Really wish you would believe in me

I'm not leaving tonight
Girl, you're my life
All of your friends think I'm no good
Please, don't prove them right
I'm not leaving tonight
It's over and done
Let's leave this alone, and let's make love
Till the morning come
(Not leaving tonight)

Oh, I won't deny
That everything in my body
Wants to know that you're the one
(So, what's the problem, girl?)
See, I can't take this serious when you're just having fun
(No, I'm not just having fun)
Steady running around, making a fool of me, oh!
(Baby girl, you can't listen to everyone)
(I'm your man) You're my man (Trust in me)
(Don't let them interfere with us being happy)

(Love me, girl)
I love you, that's a fact
(Say that you love me, baby)
But I'll be dammed if I'm a let you up and disrespect who's been there from the start
You not gon' disrespect my heart
You claim to not know not know that, girl
But her name and number is in your phone
She even got a ring tone
You care to explain that part?

Said, today she called here twenty-six times
(I know you counted)
You kept telling me not to worry
(Please, don't worry 'bout it)
Wanna believe that you're telling the truth
(So don't doubt it)
But if you are lying to me...

I'm not leaving tonight (leaving tonight)
Girl, you're my life
(Everyone said you ain't no good
And you prove them right, you're leaving tonight)
I'm not leaving tonight
(It's over and done)
Just leave this alone
And let's make love
Till the morning come
Not leaving tonight

Said I just need you to trust me, baby
(I wanna trust you)
Not leaving tonight
