song by Alicia Keys
Raise a man lyrics

Marble in the foyer
I've been loving you all day
Would I stay if you told me to stay?
As you could see it I stayin' anyway
I'm just not like these other girls, I swear
I just have to love you,
I just wanna need you, if that's okay

And you're just not like these other men out here
Oh no, you just wanna hold me
And that's okay

Can I be a woman for you baby?
In a time when it's not allowed

How am I supposed to pretend
That I don't want you the way I do? Oh, yeah
'Cause every time you're around me
I feel virgin, all over again
And every time you're around me
How can I renege ? boy, I just need your hand,
Is it okay that I'm not independent?
Is it okay that I'm?
Is it okay that I show weakness?
Is it okay that I?
Is it okay to came the way to see it?
Is it okay that?
Is it okay to love a man right now?
If you understand, then show me your hands,
Show me your hands
Boy, if you understand, somebody raise a man
Uh uh, raise a man

I've never been treated the way I didn't want to be treated
It's hard to explain, I know it's hard to believe
I want what's coming to me, perfection, protection
Please Love, all night long
Ooh
Making love to our favorite song
'Cause your love teaches me how to love so deep
Baby, you're so sweet
Can't wait to pass you down to the face that resembles you and me
Is it okay that I'm not independent?
Is it okay that I'm?
Is it okay that I show weakness?
Is it okay that I?
Is it okay to came the way to see it?
Is it okay that?
Is it okay to love a man right now?
If you understand, then show me your hands,
Show me your hands
Boy, if you understand, somebody raise a man
Uh uh, raise a man
