I may do things you ain’t gonna understand

I used to think that happiness
Could only be something that happened to somebody else
Everybody believed
Everybody but me, yeah yeah

And I’ve been hurt so many times before
That my hope was dying
So sick of tryingEverybody could see
Everybody but me, yeah yeah

But then you came into my life
You opened up my softer side
And I could see into your eyes
And suddenly, I realized

I made you think (you don’t understand)
All the times you didn’t understand
Why you couldn’t just be my man
I made you think (you don’t understand)
There were many walls you had to climb
If you really wanted to be mine
I made you think (you don’t understand)
After all the hoops I put you through
Now I see that I’m in love with you
Now, I hope you
Finally understand

So many tears I had to cry
But you had many more of your own
You had to dry
But you stuck it out
And you’re here with me now, yeah yeah

And remembering the days I pushed away
Your love you called my bluff
And you still stayed around
Yeah you figured me out
Said you got me down

And there’s no way to lie to you
You know me better than I do
Baby ooh, you see me through
I’d be no good
Without you

I made you think (you don’t understand)
All the times you didn’t understand,
Why you just couldn’t be my man
I made you think (you don’t understand)
There were many walls you had to climb (yeah)
If you really wanted to be mine (ooh)
I made you think (you don’t understand)
After all the hoops I put you through (through)
Now I see that I’m in love with you
Now, I hope you finally understand

Ohh, baby won’t you listen now
Can’t you see just what I’m talkin’ ‘bout
Said, baby won’t you listen now
Can’t you see just what I’m talkin’ ‘bout

Time went on, and I was wrong
To keep my distance for so long
So afraid you wouldn’t stay
But you never turned away
Always right by my side
You’re forever in my life
Don’t you go, cause now I know
That in you I’ve found a home

And I could see into your eyes
And suddenly, I realized

I made you think (you don’t understand)
All the times you didn’t understand
Why you just couldn’t be my man
I made you think (you don’t understand)
There were many walls you had to climb,
If you really wanted to be mine
I made you think (you don’t understand)
After all the hoops I put you through
Now I see I’m in love with you.

Now, I hope you finally understand.

I may do things you ain’t gonna understand.
