Just Wanna Know

lyrics

Intro:
I never knew the streets
We never did meet
My name's not Dre
Nah, I never made beats
Manana Santana
Yeah, I play these strings
So you can hear His heartbeat
Listen to my heart beat

Verse 1:
Now, you lookin' at me with eyes wide open
Yeah, I spit a few bars
But that ain't nothin'
I know a story 'bout a girl like you
Her smile paintin' pictures
All I see is the blues
Moonlight makin' waves in her face
I cried as the diamonds dripped cold from her face
Yeah, cold day in September
Daddy said he'd be back but she don't remember
The last time she saw him
Could that be why she's looking for a mister
Or a sister
Innocence wrote her
Just to tell her that he missed her
And her heart's still broken
Yeah, her heart's still broken
And she'll do whatever it takes
Looking for a love that can fill that place
Oh, oh, oh
Whatever it takes
Come love and fill this place

Pre-Chorus:
Every time you cry
Every sleepless night
I can hear your heart beat
(repeat)

Chorus:
I just wanna know that you're around
When I'm feelin' topsy turvy
And my world is spinnin' upside down
I just wanna know that you're around
Just to know you're there

Verse 2:
Again, I never knew the streets
We never did meet
I had the perfect life
That's what they told me
They never did see that I felt so alone
Tryin' to figure out how to make a house a home
This alcoholic, drug-addict, Hitler in my home
At times too afraid just to leave my light on
Hey Marvin, "What's goin' on?"
The American Dream
It isn't what is seems
"The prettiest people do the ugliest thing"
Hey Kanye
Family in shreds
Working 9 to 5 just to get the latest threads
And your heart's still broken
Yeah, your heart's still broken
And you'll do whatever it takes
Lookin' for a love that can fill that place
Oh, oh, oh
Whatever it takes
Come love and fill that place

Bridge:
How sick am I
Of how we've implied
That everyone knows
How your life goes
Behind closed doors
Beneath the scars
Well, I'm under the stars screamin'
God can you hear me?
God can you hear me now?
God can you hear me?
God can you hear me?
God can you hear me now?
Can you hear my heart beat?
