Call, call my name
Ooh, call it, call my name

I heard ur voice this morning calling out my name, mm
It had been so long since I've heard it
That it didn't really sound quite the same, no
But it let me know that my name had never really been spoken b4
B4 the day I carried U thru the bridal path door, huh
And ever since that day I haven't wanted anyone but U
Uh, and anybody who really knows me knows the truth
That I...

I just can't stop writin' songs about U, I love U so much
Mmm
I just can't wait 2 get my arms around U and feel ur touch
Hey
If I don't see U real soon, baby girl, I might go insane, mm
I know it's only been 3 hours but I love it when U call my name
Yes I do

I heard a voice on the news sayin' people wanna stop the war
Stop the war, ooh
If they had a love as sweet as U
They'd 4get what they were fightin' 4
What's the matter with the world 2day?
The land of the free, huh, somebody lied
They can bug my phone and peep around my home
They'll only see U and me makin' love inside

I just can't stop writin' songs about U, I love U so much
Love, love, love
I just can't wait 2 get my arms around U and feel ur touch (Yes)
If I don't see U real soon, baby girl, I might go insane (I'll go crazy)
I know it's only been 3 hours but I love it when U call my name
Oh yeah, call my name
Mmm, yeah, call my name

I've never seen the moon look so lovely as the night I saw it with U
It let me know I'd never seen the moon b4
So many speak of the moon as tho it had no flaws
But 2 compare it 2 a beauty like urs would give 1 pause
Nothing about U, huh, is false
That's why ur love is real
That's why ur love is real love (I'm talkin' about real love)
God 4bid if U belong 2 another I'd have 2 steal ya (I'd violate)
I would have 2 take U from ur man
I might b tempted 2 break the law 'round here
Because ur beauty, it gives 1 pause (Praise girl) (Yes it does)
It slows me down

I just can't stop writin' songs about U, I love U so much
I just can't wait 2 get my arms around U and feel ur touch (Oh)
If I don't see U real soon, baby girl, I might go insane (Crazy)
I know it's only been 3 hours but I love it when U call my name
I love it when she call, call my name
Yeah, baby (Call, call my name)

That's right
And I...
