Love Jones

U've got this jones forming in your bones
Love flowing through your veins
caused by this man

who indeed took over your soul

This man’s got swagger,

He’s not a Mr All Talk no action kinda guy

When he moves his lips its to speak the truth

He has his flaws and that makes him real

For we know you’re not Miss Perfect

He talks just like how he should,

He can roll out the mother tongue and

Switch it up in the next minute

He's your friend and your partner

He’s a hard worker and go-getter

He’s the one you’ll only ever truly love

He's the medicine to your pain

And you're not ashamed to admit to the world

You've got the love jones in your bones
