i don’t know (gotta have you) lyrics – jill scott

“i don’t know (gotta have you)”

well, when i saw you
walking down the avenue
ooo, you had this swagger
you held your head up high
smilin’ at the sky
like the ghetto didn’t matter
you seem to have a clarity
in the midst of insanity
that somehow drew me
you looked at me and smiled
and whoo, honey child
i can’t explain but you moved me

[chorus]
maybe it’s your eyes or your lips
the way you move your hips i mean
i don’t know but i got to have ya
maybe it’s something in your eyes
that just brings out ya s*xiness
i don’t know but i got to have ya

for the sake of decency
i had to get a hold of me
cause you knew i was on fire
now what was i to say
when this man makes me feel this way
my tongue was busy tying
well maybe we um
possibly um get together for dinner
i make a mean shepard’s pie
as the words dripped out my mouth
he just smiled as they fell out
no need for words or questions

[chorus]
maybe it’s your eyes or your lips
the way you move your hips i mean
i don’t know but i got to have ya
maybe it’s something in your eyes
that just brings out ya s*xiness
i don’t know but i got to have ya

i knew when i first looked at you
that you would shake my world
and i was cool with that
you and i were meant to be
it was so easy to see
there was no mystery just magic

[chorus]
maybe it’s your eyes or your lips
the way you move your hips i mean
i don’t know but i got to have ya
maybe it’s something in your eyes
that just brings out ya s*xiness
i don’t know but i got to have ya

i don’t know but i got to have ya
i don’t know but i got to have ya
