Aaliyah — Don't Know What To Tell Ya lyrics

Hey...yeah... Hey...yeah...no

Chorus 1

You wanna handcuff me
But yo I don't know what to tell ya
(don't know what to tell ya)
You want my intimacy
But yo I don't know what to tell ya
(don't know what to tell ya)
You want to wall around me
I swear I don't know what to tell ya
(don't know what to tell ya)
You want my lock and my keys
But yo I don't know what to tell ya
(don't know what to tell ya)

Verse 1

Incarceration what I'm facing
When I'm with you
You are watching my every move
Trying to pick up on some clues
We play 20 questions
Every time I walk in or out the door
Why do you bother for (why do you bother for)
Get comfortable with yours

Chorus 2

It's gonna take (take)
T-are-you-s-t to keep our l-o-v-e
It's gonna take (gonna take)
It's gonna take (take)
T-are-you-s-t to keep our l-o-v-e
Crackin

Verse 2

Stressing second guessin me
Time and time again
We go from lovers to being friends
Got to put this to an end (hey.. Yeah)

Chorus 1

You wanna handcuff me
But yo I don't know what to tell ya
(don't know what to tell ya)
You want my intimacy
But yo I don't know what to tell ya
(don't know what to tell ya)
You want to wall around me
I swear I don't know what to tell ya
(don't know what to tell ya)
You want my lock and my keys
But yo I don't know what to tell ya
(don't know what to tell ya)

Verse 3

No justification for your actions
Should have been somewhere relaxed son
Don't compare me to your last one
I can't help if she was a fast one
A sassy one
I'm a classy one
I can keep you from getting happy hon
Seems like that should make you happy hon

Chorus 2

It's gonna take (gonna take)
It's gonna take (take)
T-are-you-s-t to keep our l-o-v-e
It's gonna take (gonna take)
It's gonna take (take)
T-are-you-s-t to keep our l-o-v-e
Crackin

I can't deny all your lies
I try to put up with you
These insecurities every day
Pushing my love away

Chorus 1

You wanna hand cuff me
But yo I don't know what to tell ya (yeah.. No)
(don't know what to tell ya)
You want my intimacy
But yo I don't know what to tell ya
(don't know what to tell ya)
You want to wall around me
I swear I don't know what to tell ya (I swear.. Yeah)
(don't know what to tell ya)
You want my lock and my keys (my lock and my keys)
But yo I don't know what to tell ya
(don't know what to tell ya)(no)
You wanna hand cuff me
But yo I don't know what to tell ya (yes you do)
(don't know what to tell ya)
You want my intimacy
But yo I don't know what to tell ya (no)
(don't know what to tell ya)
You want to wall around me (you want to wall around me)
I swear I don't know what to tell ya (I swear)
(don't know what to tell ya)
You want my lock and my keys
But yo I don't know what to tell ya
(don't know what to tell ya)

Chorus 2
