We clicked like two fingers used to snap
Your personality was a melody that made opposites attract
The rhythm of your voice was in tuned with my heart
You never spoke to the man
But wooed the King in me from the start
A small town girl dealing with an inner city brother
You respected my hustle
Us dating, disrespected your mother
But, what does that have to do with love?
We’re in this relationship for the long run
When I’m down, you carry the paton to finish the race
But ever since I walked through the door
Your face expression said so much more
Then, “I’m glad you came.”
Is our relationship so unusual
That family expectations are enough to ruin what we have
What if we broke up
Would her love be worth hating us?
Love don’t love like that nor love like this
Don’t let this love like us become a fairly tale that shall never exist.
