I'm not a woman, I'm not a man
I am something that U'll never understand
I'll never beat U, I'll never lie
And if U're evil I'll 4give U by and by

Cuz U, I would die 4 U, yeah
Darlin', if U want me 2
U, I would die 4 U

I'm not ur lover, I'm not ur friend
I am something that U'll never comprehend
No need 2 worry, no need 2 cry
I'm ur messiah and U're the reason why

Cuz U, I would die 4 U, yeah
Darlin', if U want me 2
U, I would die 4 U
Wow!
Uh
Uh

U're just a sinner I am told, b ur fire when U're cold
Make U happy when U're sad, make U good when U r bad
I'm not a human, I am a dove, I'm ur conscience, I am love
All I really need is 2 know that U believe... (Yeah)

I would die 4 U, yeah
Darlin', if U want me 2
U, I would die 4 U
Yeah, say it 1 more time
U, I would die 4 U
Darlin', if U want me 2!
U, I would die 4 U, 2 3 4 U

I would die 4 U
I would die 4 U
U, I would die 4 U
U, I would die 4 U
