It Wasn't Supposed To Be Love

lyrics

It wasn't supposed to be love
I'll tell ya very frankly
Baby, I'm supposed to be a playa
Can't no lady catch me

It wasn't supposed to be love
then somehow
It wasn't supposed to be love
but it is now

It wasn't supposed to be love
You know how we go
A man can only go for what he knows
Libido and ego

It wasn't supposed to be love
then the moon rose
It wasn't supposed to be love
then my heart chose

It wasn't supposed to be love
but your eyes are so essential
Your voice is like the first summer breeze
Your smile is so crucial

It wasn't supposed to be love
then the sunrise
It wasn't supposed to be love
Surprise, surprise, surprise
Surprise, surprise, surprise

Oh, everybody's looking for love
but I'm not supposed to care
Love can get sticky, baby
and it gets everywhere

I said never, never
but fate is clever
In just one night,
a couple of hours
became forever

I wasn't 'spose to fit it
I'm knee-deep in it
Somehow, you did it

If you were stuck on top of the mountain, baby
I'd carry you down
If you were stuck down deep in the middle of the ocean, baby
I'm goin divin
