[Sigh] Look. I know we've been friends for a while now
But, I just feel like I can confess to you
It's gonna be hard but
Alright here it goes...
Imagine that the pillow that you cried on was my chest
And the tissue that you wiped your face with was my hand
Girl imagine if you needed advice, about some other guy
I'm the one that comes to mind
Not trying to hear you tell nobody that I’m just a friend
Just trying to make sure I’m that body that you call your man
And any time you need a shoulder
It's yours, night or day
But what I’m trying to say
The last number that you call at night
Said I wanna be
The first one that you dial when you open your eyes
Wanna be the one you run to
Wanna be the one that ain't gone hurt you
I wanna be (yeah) , wanna be (yeah)
Be the man , making your girls jealous
(Girl i wanna be)
Be the guy shutting down all the fellas
Whatever you need , girl it's all on me
Your soldier , your friend or your lover
Girl , I wanna be
Would it be cool?
Would you mind if I called you my boo
What if the next whip you was pushin' was the one I bought for you?
Can I be the one that meets your pops and take your mama shoppin', be the only one they like?
Have you thought about it -- wait -- really thought about it?
Maybe you should take some time
Call your girls and talk about it, yeah
Cause I done already made up my mind
Don't need no more time to know if I wanna be with you
I wanna be...
Put me on your screen saver, all over your myspace and make me one of your top favorites
That's where I wanna be...
The one you cryin' for (stand up for and fightin' for)
Wanna be your good, bad, love, hate girl..
Cross my heart hoped to die, on everything that's good
I'm gonna do you right, show you right, get this understood
Girl I wanna be, I wanna be.... [sigh]
I wanna be, I wanna be...
