lyrics

[Chorus 1: Good Matters]
Me and you
Excuse me boo, you and I
Go together like the dark and all the stars do
We could run forever like the Energizer claim to
I'm just a man, looking for a girl
Search the world for something worth it
They say it don't exist and we all got luggage
But this is close to perfect

[Verse 1: Casey G]
I saw her walking home from dance class, I drove past twice
But can you blame me? That's a nice ass in tights
My game was off, but she not one to play
She knows what she wants, I really can't complain
She dealing feelings like some kind of "love me" coupon
Her boots on, but I'd like to take them off upon my futon
We'll get to know each other, slowly get our groove on
Tell these people, "Sorry." But it's time for them to move on
She wears a sundress in the winter. She's cool like that
Likes that Kool G Rap. She old school like
She's even sexy when she wakes up. No makeup
She looks so picturesque, I think photography I'll take up

[Scratch break: DJ Idlhnds]

[Chorus 1: Good Matters]
Me and you
Excuse me boo, you and I
Go together like the dark and all the stars do
We could run forever like the Energizer claim to
I'm just a man, looking for a girl
Search the world for something worth it
They say it don't exist and we all got luggage
But this is close to perfect

[Bridge: Good Matters]
She got me tossing and turning and thinking of her all day. (She got me thinking about her. She got me thinking about her.)
I can't focus, you'll notice, I can't even think straight. (She got me thinking about her. C'mon!)

[Chorus 2: Good Matters]
I need a moment. She give me lovin' at four in the morning
She got me taking it day by day
As long as you know me, you'll never be lonely
So come put it on
I need a moment. She give me lovin' at four in the morning
She got me taking it day by day
As long as you know me, you'll never be lonely
So come put it on me babe

[Verse 2: Casey G]
She got me feeling like a million bucks
But she say don't focus on the money, cuz she know it don't mean much
She make me laugh. I make me blush. We like to rap. We like to (uh!)
And after that we walk a block and talk about this love

[Chorus 2: Good Matters]
I need a moment. She give me lovin' at four in the morning
She got me takin it day by day
As long as you know me, you'll never be lonely
So come put it on
I need a moment. She give me lovin' at four in the morning
She got me takin it day by day
As long as you know me, you'll never be lonely
So come put it on me babe
