Mmm...

This will b the day that U will hear me say
That I would never run away
I am here 4 U, love is meant 4 2
Now tell me, what U gonna do?

If I gave U diamonds and pearls
Would U b a happy boy or a girl?
If I could I would give U the world
But all I can do is just offer U my love

Ooh... (Mmm...)
Which 1 of us is right if we always fight?
Why can't we just let love decide? (Let love decide)
Am I the weaker man because I understand (Oh...)
That love must b the master plan? (Love is the master plan)

If I gave U diamonds and pearls
Would U b a happy boy or a girl?
If I could I would give U the world
But all I can do is just offer U my love
Love

D 2 the I 2 the A 2 the M
O 2 the N 2 the D 2 the pearls of love
D 2 the I 2 the A 2 the M
O 2 the N 2 the D 2 the pearls of love

There will come a time when love will blow ur mind
And everything U look 4 U'll find (Take a look inside, yeah)
That will b the time that everything will shine (Oh yeah)
So bright it makes U colorblind (U will b colorblind)

If I gave U diamonds and pearls
Would U b a happy boy or a girl?
If I could I would give U the world
But all I can do is just offer U my love

If I gave U diamonds and pearls (Yeah yeah)
Would U b a happy boy or a girl?
If I could I would give U the world
But all I can do is just offer U my love

If I gave U diamonds and pearls (Diamonds)
Would U b... a happy boy or a girl? (Would U... b happy little baby?)
If I could I would give U the world
