Foxx, Jamie - I Don't Know Lyrics

Yeeaah, Right [x5]

I dont know why (I dont know why)
She keeps on passin' me by,
Maybe her eye is on just some other guy,
And I'll forever be that fella on the side,
She passes me by

As I hopped off the train this shawty caught my eye,
I asked her for her name she gave me no reply,
She left me standing there with arrows in my heart,
But yet and still I'm wanting her,
And later on that week while driving in my car,
I coulda sworn I saw that shawty walking down the road,
I thought she passed at me while I was staring from afar,
Or is just my young mind wishing

I dont know why (I dont know why)
She keeps on passin' me by,
Maybe her eye is on just some other guy,
And I'll forever be that fella on the side,
She passes me by

Come back come back come back come back
Come back
(Come back come back come back come back)
I said come back baby
(Come back come back come back come back) [x2]
I want you here by me (Come back come back come back come back) [x3]

It gets so confusing this game,
I met alot of girls but never felt this way,
I get strange pleasure though from going through this pain,
And like a ghost I'm haunting her,
I often fantasize about walking hand in hand
But I don't know her name or if she's got a man,
And the only thing that gives me hope to stay
Is maybe one day she'll notice me

I dont know why (I dont know why)
She keeps on passin' me by, (She keeps on passin' me by,)
Maybe her eye is on just some other guy,
And I'll forever be that fella on the side, (but I dont wana be on the side)

(Come back come back come back come back)
Why wont you come back (Come back come back come back come back)
I know you want to (Come back come back come back come back)
(Come back come back come back come back)

  84. elogan72

    Unlike other artists, Jamie samples very tastefully. Without totally compromsing the original. Marvin Gaye is my favorite, by the way. Some of those young bucks use the entire song.

  86. G-Allure

    So true i don't know why jamie lol
