i wanna be lyrics – chris brown

[intro:]
[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…

[verse 1:]
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 advise about some other guy, i’m the one that comes to mind.
not tryna hear you tell n*body that i’m just a friend,
just trying to make sure i’m that body that you call your man,
and anytime you need a shoulder — it’s yours, night or day,
but what i’m tryna say is, i wanna be…

[chorus:]
the last number you call late 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 gonna hurt you,
i wanna be yeah, i wanna be yeah..
be the man making your girl jealous,
be the guy shuttin’ down all the fellas..
whatever you need, girl, it’s all on me:
soldier, your friend or your lover, girl,
i wanna be…

[verse 2:]
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…

[chorus]

[verse 3:]
put me on your screen saver, all over your mysp*ce 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..

[x2]
cross my heart hoped to die, on everything that’s good,
i’m gonna do you right, show you right, get this understood.

[chorus]

girl i wanna be, i wanna be…. [sigh]
i wanna be, i wanna be…
