Lyric "Next Lifetime"

Erykah, we known each other for a while, I'm into you
I don't know what I gotta do, you know, to get closer to you
Wait a minute, you know I'm in a situation
Why are you? Don't do this, why you trippin' like that?

Well I understand that, but you, your whole vibe is, you know
I can see myself being with you forever
Wow, that is really, that's really beautiful
I kinda dig you too, you know that
W-we, but we're friends and I'm in a situation
I-I'm in a relationship and you know what that means
Well whatever I gotta do I'll do it for you

You sure put me in an awkward situation

[Hook]
Now what am I supposed to do
When I want you in my world
How can I want you for myself
When I'm already someones girl?

[Hook]
Now what am I supposed to do
When I want you in my world
How can I want you for myself
When I'm already someones girl?

[Verse 1]
First time that I saw you boy
It was a warm and sunny day
All I know is I wanted you
I really hoped you looked my way
When you smiled at me
So warm and sweet
I could not stay
You make me feel like a Lipton girl
What do you do to me

[Hook]
Now what am I supposed to do
When I want you in my world
How can I want you for myself
When I'm already someones girl?

[Hook]
Now what am I supposed to do
When I want you in my world
How can I want you for myself
When I'm already someones girl?

I guess I'll see you next lifetime
No hard feelings
I guess I'll see you next lifetime
I'm gonna be there

[Verse 2]
Your energy, feels so damn good to me
It picks me up don't wanna come down
You got me spinning all around
Yeah
You need to know
I've got somebody
You're beautiful
But still it ain't that type of party now

[Hook]
Now what am I supposed to do
When I want you in my world
How can I want you for myself
When I'm already someones girl?

[Hook]
Now what am I supposed to do
When I want you in my world
How can I want you for myself
When I'm already someones girl?

Well I guess I'll see you next lifetime
Baby we'll be butterflies
I guess I'll see you next lifetime
That sounds so divine

I guess I'll see you next lifetime
I guess I will now
I guess I'll see you next lifetime
Wait, wait a little while

[Verse 3]
See it ain't nothing wrong with dreaming
Boy don't get me wrong
Cause every time (every time) I see you (every single time)
I know just how strong (every single time)
That my love is for my baby
But emotions just dont lie
Well I know I'm a lot of woman
But not enough to divide the pie

[Hook]
Now what am I supposed to do
When I want you in my world
How can I want you for myself
When I'm already someones girl?

I guess I'll see you next lifetime
You know I want to stay around
I guess I'll see you next lifetime
I'm so confused now

[Hook]
Now what am I supposed to do
When I want you in my world
How can I want you for myself
When I'm already someones girl?

I guess I'll see you next lifetime
Already
I'm going to be there
I guess I'll see you next lifetime
I'm going to look for you

[Hook]
Now what am I supposed to do
When I want you in my world
How can I want you for myself
When I'm already someones girl?

I guess I'll see you next lifetime
Oh
Oh baby
I'm gonna be there
I'm gonna be there
