    Ooh hey
    I'm trying to decide
    which way to go, I think
    I made a wrong turn back their somewhere.

    or Didn't Cha Know?
    When I first met you,
    it was clearly like at first sight and
    I got arrested in your chocolate-colored gaze.
    Now what am I suppose to do,
    when I'm seeing my world through
    your chestnut-colored view?
    ...you looked my way;
    when you smiled at me,
    so warm and sweet;
    I could not stay!
    What do you do to me?

    Perhaps we could give it a go Next Lifetime.
    Hmmmmmmmm
    I tried to move but I lost my way,
    So many times I changed my mind,
    searching for the right path and solution that
    could potentially join me to you,
    but somewhere along the way I understood
    that it aint that type of party.
    So....
    I guess I'll see you Next Lifetime,
    I hope you have no hard feelings....
    I guess I'll see you Next Lifetime,
    Hmmmmm I may be there.
    See,
    I tried to decide which way to go;
    I tried to find a neutral place but it was catch 22.
    I tried to devise a way to be in your sea,
    but Next Lifetime came into view.
    Now...
    Your imaging...
    Feels so D**n good to me!
    It picks me up, don't wanna come down;
    You got me spinning all around.....

    But I'm still trying to decide,
    knowing that
    ...when I stumble off the path
    ...my inner heart will guide me back...
    And I realize that...
    Love is life, and Life is free
    ...
    So I choose to allow him to direct me.
    Take a ride on life with me...
    And know that though I can't get with you,
    i'll always love you and care.
    Free your mind and find your way...
    Now I'm feeling easy and new, like the first falling of
    raindrops and sweet morning dew.
    There will be a brighter day...
    My life, my life, my life in the sunshine....
    birds and dreams and flowers and the taste on my
    tongue of waiting a little while...
    I guess I'll see you Next Lifetime
    and Baby we'll be butterflies...
    Didn't Cha Know? Next Lifetime.
