Alicia Keys - Raise a Man Lyrics

Raise a Man

Marble in a foyer
I`ve been loving on you all day
Would`ve stayedif you told me to stay
As you can see
I stayed 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 babe
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
So every time you`re around me
I feel virgin all over again
And every time you`re a-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...
Is it okay that I show weakness
Is it okay that I...
Is it okay to can`t wait to see you
Is it okay that I...
Is it okay to love a man right now

If you understand
Then show me your hands, ooh hoo
Show me your hands
Boy if you understand
Somebody raised a man, ooh hoo
Raised a man

I`ve never been treated a way
I didn`t want to be treated
It`s hard to explain,
I know it`s hard to believe
I want what`s calming me
Perfection, protection (please, love)
Bring me all night long, woah
Making love to our favourite songs
Your love teaches me how
To love so deep
Baby it`s 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...
Is it okay that I show weakness
Is it okay that I...
Is it okay to can`t wait to see you
Is it okay that I...
Is it okay to love a man right now

If you understand
Then show me your hands ooh hoo
Show me your hands
Boy if you understand
Somebody raised a man ooh hoo
Raised a man

oh ho oh ho
oh ho oh ho

Everyday, and every night
I pray for one accord
I adore you even more
And every minute that passes me by
We can`t afford
For us to be ignored
See we need each other
More than we even know oh ho

Somebody made a man
So show me how to raise a man ooh hoo
Raise a man
You can`t be a man
If we don`t raise a man ooh hoo
Raise a man
If you want a man
Then you gotta raise a man ooh hoo
Raise a man
If you understand
Then show me your hands ooh hoo
Show me your hands
